I will review the tightest constraints that can be obtain from the Lyman-alpha forest on: neutrino masses and cold dark matter coldness. I will also discuss consistency with other data sets (CMB, weak lensing and cluster number counts). Finally I will present the forecasts on the above quantities that could be obtained with future observations
