neutrons from alpha-n and spontaneous fission

I would like to ask you if we can use FLUKA to estimate the flux and
energy spectrum of neutrons produced via
- alpha-n reactions (in various materials)
- spontaneous fission (of 238U)

Are those processes taken into account in FLUKA ?

  From a previous message in the mailing list (it was 12 March 2010 by
Paola Sala)
I understand that a new package (BME) has to be installed , but it was
not completely tested at the time.
Is the situation somehow changed ?

Thank you very much !
