Arrowpoint is doing pretty well these days. There's been no major riots lately, and the dwarves seem to be pretty content with the way the place is run (which is quite unusual). Economy kicked in, and thankfully a diverse array of different rooms is available, so that poor and rich dwarves alike have places to rent.
I feel that there isn't much left to do underground - population is still below the cap, but it is unlikely it will ever expand to the point where radical expansion of the industry and residential arrangements will have to follow. So, instead, I've been focusing on improving the defensive installations on the surface. Dwarven militaries being as inefficient as they are (it seems that orders given to military units are more like suggestions - "you guys might wanna go and attack the invaders after you're done doing whatever more important task you're doing right now"), I try to arrange my fortress in such a way that allows me to defend it with minimal effort.
I have constructed several of these bunker-type buildings. The only way to reach them is through an underground tunnel, but crossbow troops can shoot out of them. This way, if a goblin horde is hanging around out of the range of soldiers on the main walls, they can still be attacked without having to open the main entrances. - CSFF
