I can note that this (LPF) is a Pathfinder for the next generation spacecraft, called eLISA.

The first of two sets of locks holding Lisa Pathfinder's test cubes in place have been released. The cubes will be fully released on the 15th of February which will allow science operations to begin on the 1st of March.

Good summary of the mission and its technology (with applications for many other spacecraft, not just gravity wave observing) http://sci.esa.int/lisa-pathfinder/59238-l...lazing-mission/

Last data taken on June 30th, EOM July 18, and a maneuver into a parking orbit around the Sun.
