The EXOGAM array is installed at GANIL since 2001. During these ten years, it has been extensively used in various experimental areas of the laboratory, under many different configurations and attacking several physics problem. On average, the EXOGAM detectors are present in the experimental setups in more than half of the beam time. The physics outcome of such an intense use is vast and covers many facets of both nuclear structure and reaction mechanism studies. In this talk, some of the latest results obtained with the array will be presented. This will cover the physics along the N=Z line studied using fusion-evaporation reactions as well as some examples obtained via deep-inelastic reactions in the region of neutron rich nuclei around 68Ni. In most of the time, and in the examples which will be mentioned in the talk, EXOGAM was coupled to another set of detectors: either the large acceptance VAMOS spectrometer or the Neutron Wall and the DIAMANT charged particle array. In 2012, the array will be moved to the ILL for an experimental campaign of about four months (two reactor cycles). The physics programme of this campaign will be briefly described. Finally, after these ten years of exploitation, it is time for the EXOGAM array to be upgraded by equipping the Clover detectors with a new full digital electronics. This is the purpose of the EXOGAM2 project which is currently developing. The status of this development will be given.
