GANIL has been producing many stable and radioactive ion beams for nearly 25 years. Constant progresses have been made in terms of intensity, stability, and reliability. The intensity for some stable metallic beams now exceeds or approaches the p µA level at an energy up to 95 MeV/u, e.g., 1.14 p µA for 36S (65% enriched) at 77 MeV/u, 0.35 p µA for 58Ni (63% enriched) at 74 MeV/u. Some recent results with Magnesocene using the metallic ions from volatile compounds method should also make possible the production of metallic beams with an intensity greater than 1 p µA. This has still to be measured. The ISOL facility SPIRAL I has been in operation for almost six years. Up to now, 17 exotic He experiments have been done with 14 target/ion-source (TIS) units; 19 other experiments (with O, Ne, Ar, and Kr) have been achieved with 14 TISs. Statistics show a fairly good ratio of available beam time to scheduled beam time. The radioactive beams and available intensities are compiled in this report. Future developments on radioactive ion beam production are briefly presented, while more details will be discussed elsewhere at this conference.
