Fast interpolation grid technology provides a fast and flexible way to reproduce the results of perturbative QCD cross section calculations with any input PDF, choice of scales, or strong coupling. Recent developments in the APPLfast interface between the NNLOJET QCD calculation with both APPLgid and fastNLO are reported including the release of development versions of grids for QCD cross sections at the LHC including jet production, and Z production at high ET. The ploughshare utility, used as the standard source for the distribution of the NNLO APPLfast grids is also discussed.
