We present a new stellar evolution code and a set of results, showing its capability to calculate full evolutionary tracks for a wide range of masses and metalicities. The code is meant to be used also in the context of modeling the evolution of dense stellar systems, for performing live evolutionary calculations both for normal ZAMS/PRE-MS models, but mainly for non-canonical (i.e. merger-products) stellar configurations. For such tasks, it has to be robust and efficient, capable to run through all phases of stellar evolution without interruption or intervention. Here we show a few examples of evolutionary calculations for stellar populations I and II, and for masses in the range 0.2564 M.
