Abstract: SourceXtractor++, is a new, open source software for detecting and measuring sources in astronomical images. It is a complete redesign of the original SExtractor software with many advanced features and written mainly in C++. In this contribution we present an overview on the SourceXtractor++ design and the choices that have been made. SourceXtractor++ allows users to extend its functionality with plugins. Users can implement plugins that define input parameters, compute object properties and add the results to the output, and we discuss the plugin concept in detail. An alpha version of the package is already available.
