The paper contains a summary of the recent developments of the prediction part of the NAAPRO (Neutron Activation Analysis PRognosis and Optimization) code. Specific details are given for the activation product yield calculation approach used in the program and for the nuclear data libraries. The prospects for the code development are discussed.
