After the initial release of the first production version of MCNP6 and its subsequent beta release, the extended electron-photon-relaxation capabilities of the code have continued to be developed. With the availability of newer data, several enhancements and corrections to the methods have been installed into the code. In this paper we discuss these improvements, including the development of three distinct approaches to sampling electron elastic scattering, the correction of an earlier data resolution problem, and a few formal corrections to the earlier ACE data file.
