See the Future of Graphical Programming Now

The release of LabVIEW 2016 just a few short weeks ago marked the 30-year anniversary of the seminal 1.0 launch of LabVIEW on the Mac. To ultimately improve your productivity in building engineering systems, NI has consistently invested in abstracting low-level programming tasks, exposing leading technologies and compute platforms, maximizing performance and memory management, and of course doing all of this inside of a stable platform. You might think that the features you’ve see over the past few releases, such as Channel Wires, represent the totality of the investment being made in LabVIEW. But, you would be wrong. 

 

NI also announced the NI Software Technology Preview, a program designed to provide current users of NI software active on a Standard Service Program contract with an early look at conceptual capabilities. Through this program, you can access pre-release software builds, product guides, reference materials, help modules, and discussion forums to help you along the way.

 

The software builds available today demonstrate investment in these 6 key areas:

Icon84-Upward Trend-5.png Enhanced Productivity for Programing Icon84-Data Viz-5.png

Modern UI Development from the Desktop to the Web

The Next Generation LabVIEW Features for Desktop DAQ and Instrument Control Technology Preview build demonstrates the fruition of these investments in graphical programming specifically.

I hope the new UI is optional and one can toggle back to a "Legacy" mode, in perpetuity as it would be bad for that to only be in place for a few releases.  I'm used to having about a dozen VIs (of various sizes) open at any given time and don't see how this new UI will accomodate that.  I don't want to switch between tabs, I want to have 8 block diagrams open at the same time and be looking at them all simultaneously.  They'll each have a have a different size.

Yeah, me too.  Whatever it is about my brain wiring, I almost never maximize a single window and almost always have a bunch of overlapping windows open simultaneously.   At the moment, roughly 20.

 

Please don't force a UI change on us.

curmudgeon at large, who jokingly says that Windows 98SE was the pinnacle of UI achievement, and secretly *almost* believes it.  XP was the first culprit, giving us soft billowy gui elements and making me feel like a small child who's given crayons so chunky I have to draw with my fist.  (Remainder of rant deleted)

Any comments you guys have about the Tech Preview really should be done in the board specifically set up for it.  The people most likely to be able to make the decisions you want will be looking there a lot more than here.

Oh, I thought that was a link to sign up for the preview, I didn't realize it was also a posting board.

Thanks!
