LabVIEW Community Edition

As a 20+ year LabVIEW developer, I can assure you that NI may release a "LabVIEW Professional Version" by itself without the "Evaluation Version" watermark plastered all over the place, but it WILL NOT be the full "LabVIEW Professional Development System".

 

I am 99% positive that you will NOT be able to create executable files or deploy code to different target devices with this "FREE" version of LabVIEW.

Neither did I think they would release a version for $50 that allowed yo to to build executables - but they did.

Quoting Sargent Shultz "I know nothing!"

 

But let's toy with you being correct.

 

If I have to load the LabVIEW Community Edition" on my laptop to be able to run my model railroad.

Sorry...  but like Bigfoot and UFO's I find it hard to believe without the physical evidence. 

 

Even if it is "FREE" for private home use to automate your train set. How is NI going to stop people from deploying applications developed with this?

 

I'll believe it when I see it.

 

I guess I'm just a dummy for purchasing LabVIEW all these years when I coulda just waited for the free version.

Far from it!

 

A man ahead of his time and willing to invest in a good idea when he sees it!

 

If this does turn out to be the Loc Ness monster in the end it will save me having to update my license as well.

Pretty much the way they "stopped" deployment of executables built with the Home Edition - with a watermark and some measure of trust.

It is the complete professional version, application builder included.

 

Yes. Its happening. It is real (based on the information I have).

 

NI has even stated that code created with it and made available can be later used in commercial products (with a paid license). This is just what the community needs.

Oh. BTW. Deploys to common targets like arduino and linx will be included. I may have faulty memory on precisely which ones, but the statement of intent was clearly to support "hobby" hardware.

 

Just let that sink in. I'll be the first to admit it is so NOT NI but megakudos for the change. Long may it continue.

 

I was at the presentation at GDevCon.
