Hello ElijahK,

Just one thing I'd like to comment because it seems a bit weird, how come the parallel loop improvement from version 2009 to 2010 reaches 480%?

The good explanation is not that LV 2010 is really good, it means that the previous versions were really bad. How could we explain that?

Thx for your effort!

Elijah, this is great material. Thank you for putting this together, it makes for a great user-group presentation.

The latest details within it appear to be for LabVIEW 2010 - are there any further compiler optimisations introduced since that we could all usefully read about? If so, any chance of updating this presentation to the latest revision?

This is good stuff. Is there a video or audio to go along with it?

Excellent presentation. Some very valuable insights.

Now I'm off to inline some subVIs!
