Geant4 offers a set of models to simulate hadronic showers in calorimeters. Recent
improvements to several models relevant to the modeling of hadronic showers will be
discussed. These improvements include improved cross sections, a revision of the FTF
model, the addition of quasi-elastic scattering to the QGS model, and improvements in
the nuclear precompound and de-excitation models. The validation of physics models
against thin target experiments has been extended especially around and below 10 GeV.
Examples of new validation results will be shown.
