Since the Juelich 'Dido' research reactor was shut down 5 years ago, the larger part of its neutron scattering instruments was moved to the new FRM2 neutron source at Munich, and some newly constructed. While we used a set of standard components as far as feasible, we had to accept some compromises due to the time pressure to get things going. In particular, we have a number of different graphical and command-line user interfaces now which is difficult to handle for users who work on multiple instruments. After the initial rush, we are now working towards some consolidation, both on a common GUI philosophy and a high-level scripting language. The design of the new user interface will be presented.
