The destackification theorem is a remarkable recent result in birational geometry, which in particular gives a weak factorization theorem for orbifolds. I will discuss some other applications, such as geometricity of derived categories of smooth Deligne-Mumford stacks and a proof of the Galkin-Shinder conjecture on the categorical zeta function.
