Preliminary results from an ongoing project to compute a grid of post-AGB models is presented. Our preliminary results show that stellar evolution computations that include an updated treatment of the microphysics predict post-AGB timescales that are several times shorter that predicted by older models. Also the mass-luminosity relation of post-AGB models deviates from that of older grids. In addition, our results suggest only a slight metallicity dependence of the post-AGB timescales. We… Expand
