The Vienna VLBI Software (VieVS) is state-of-the-art VLBI analysis software, developed and maintained since 2008 by the VLBI group at Technische Universit"{a}t Wien (TU Wien), with important contributions from other groups worldwide. VieVS is designed for the analysis of geodetic VLBI observation data, as well as for scheduling and simulation of various VLBI sessions. The current release (VieVS 2.2) was enhanced with a source structure simulator and provides revised capabilities for scheduling and global long-term solutions. VieVS comes with a graphical user interface and is written in MATLAB, which promotes convenient handling and coding and, hence, simplifies the entry into VLBI analysis for students. Furthermore, we maintain a VieVS-Wiki at vievswiki.geo.tuwien.ac.at. Current developments concentrate on upgrading VieVS for the possibility to use ray-traced delays for all VLBI observations and on refining the source structure simulations. WE also work on an advanced treatment of sibling and twin telescopes in VieVS. Furthermore, it is planned to add scheduling functions for VLBI observations to satellites in the next release.
