    MERLIN is a highly abstracted particle tracking code written in C++ that provides many unique features, and is simple to extend and modify. We have investigated the addition of high order wakefields to this tracking code and their effects on bunches, particularly with regard to collimation systems for both hadron and lepton accelerators. Updates have also been made to increase the code base compatibility with current compilers, and speed enhancements have been made to the code via the addition of multithreading to allow cluster operation on the grid. The developments allow for simulations with large numbers of particles to take place. Instructions for downloading the new code base are given.
