    Re: What have you been up to?

    It means:

    what have you been doing?
    what have you been doing up to now? e.g. a general enquiry about your current situation or work.

    or if someone was caught doing something naughty or suspicious ... (in a more immediate situation) then this question may be asked to enquire what the person was doing because it was a suspicious behaviour.

    "what have you been up to lately?" means "What IS IT that you do all day?!".
