Announcing the LabVIEW 2009 Platform beta

>  LabVIEW is the common thread that runs throughtout the items
(modules, toolkits, etc.) in the platform release.

I did get that, still, NI Software 2009 Platform would be a better name,
since not all products require LabVIEW. Also, Lookout doesn't have much to
do with LabVIEW, does it? I didn't even know it still exists... But this is
completelly irrelevant...

Think the list got bigger, and with "LabVIEW 2009 Platform" in the list my
first comment doesn't make any sense anyway...

Regards,

Wiebe.

I'm sure it has something to do with differing release schedules.  Lots of NI software releases at the same time as LabVIEW but not all of it.  This is intended to be that subset that really does rely on LabVIEW.

We cannot discuss things like that in public. Those wo are accepted into the beta program will receive appropriate announcement elsewhere.

 

Check your beta agreement again (terms and conditions). 😉

"Oh dear. Please don't tell me that NI is falling into the silly naming scheme for releases that use years. This scheme, which seems to have been started by Microsoft, is a real pain, and seems to me to be more of a marketing gimmick. What's wrong with version numbers?"

 

They want to make sure you feel nice and out-of-date when its 2012 and you are still running LabVIEW 2009. ;).  I think its silly too.  The current version # scheme is consistent and I would hate to see NI change to this horrible version numbering scheme.  SolidWorks does this, and I hate it.  There really are no differences between SolidWorks 2007 and 2008 for instance.  The 2008 release should be 2007.1 IMHO. Using the year as a version number is misleading as to what the weight of the release truely is.

Major releases every year?

 

LabVIEW 6 (i):  ~2001 - 7/2003 (2 years)

LabVIEW 7 (Express):  7/2003 - 10/2005 (2 years)

LabVIEW 8 (Project):  10/2005 - 8/2009 (4 years)

 

Major.Minor.Bug logically groups Major, Minor, and Bug fix developments.

Just a thought...

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing LabBEAN.  Sure there has been minor updates probably every year.  But certainly no major updates.  Using the year for the version number is a marketting ploy to make every release seem significant, and is a bit dishonest imho.

LabBEAN,  read the quote again.  He said release LabVIEW every year.  Nowhere did he say a Major release or Minor release
