The main physics goals of the NA61/SHINE programme on strong interactions are the study of the properties of the onset of deconfinement and the search for signatures of the critical point of strongly interacting matter. These goals are pursued by performing an energy (beam momentum 13$A$ --
158$A$~GeV/c) and system size (p+p, p+Pb, Be+Be, Ar+Sc, Xe+La) scan.

Moreover the experiment provides precision hadron production measurements needed for neutrino beams at J-PARC and Fermilab as well as for air shower simulations of cosmic-ray experiments (Pierre Auger Observatory, KASCADE-Grande and KASCADE).

This talk reviews results and plans of NA61/SHINE.
In particular, recent inclusive spectra and new results on fluctuations and correlations of identified hadrons in inelastic p+p and centrality selected Be+Be interactions at the SPS energies will be shown. The energy dependence of quantities inspired by the Statistical Model of Early Stage (kink, horn and step) show interesting behavior in p+p collisions, which is not described by Monte-Carlo models.

Furthermore, the Be+Be data suggest collective flow to develop even in collisions of low mass nuclei.
