Abstract: The Atacama Large Millimeter/sub–millimeter Array (ALMA) is an interferometric radio observatory in northern Chile. The ALMA data processing pipelines, written in Python and built largely upon the Common Astronomy Software Applications package (CASA), produce calibrated measurement sets, images and supporting products. The ALMA pipelines share a common code base that is used to calibrate data from the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array as well as the Nobeyama Radio Observatory. In this paper we briefly describe the pipeline framework and highlight its latest updates to support ALMA Cycle 7 operations. The CASA Pipeline is developed by an international consortium of scientists and software developers based at the National Radio Astronomical Observatory (NRAO), the European Southern Observatory (ESO), and the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan (NAOJ) and the Joint ALMA Observatory (JAO).
