LabWindows/CVI 2015 Highlights

  • Upgraded optimizing compiler with added error and warning messages to highlight code weak points
  • Over 270 improvements and bug fixes since LabWindows/CVI 2013
  • LabWindows/CVI 2015 Real-Time Module for building highly reliable, deterministic applications

Overview

Building on the latest improvements to the new LabWindows/CVI optimizing compiler, LabWindows/CVI 2015 includes version 3.3 of Clang, the C language compiler front end to the LLVM compiler infrastructure. First introduced in LabWindows/CVI 2013, LLVM is an industry standard compiler infrastructure, that offers programmers optimized code generation out of the box. The upgrade to Clang 3.3 helps developers ensure code reliability by highlighting weak points with added error and warning messages.

As a stability release, LabWindows/CVI 2015 contains over 50 bug fixes and improvements to provide a robust development platform for building critical applications for test and measurement.  Programmers can take advantage of all the new features introduced in LabWindows/CVI 2013 such as OpenMP and Network Streams to improve application performance without significantly rewriting their code. By providing the latest compiler and parallel programming technologies, LabWindows/CVI 2015 lets developers focus on program logic and I/O.

Clang compiler upgrade from version 2.9 to 3.3

  • New warning flags and warning messages
  • Improved detection of uninitialized local variables
  • Improved stability when building large files
  • Up to 21% faster execution speed for 64-bit binaries

LabWindows/CVI Real-Time Module

When execution reliability is critical, add the LabWindows/CVI Real-Time Module to create reliable and deterministic applications that target dedicated real-time hardware. Learn more about deterministic application development.

I am pleased to announce that LabWindows/CVI 2013 Service Pack 1 which includes 137 bug fixes, is now part of your Standard Service Program and available to download.

In addition, the LabWindows/CVI release cycle will be modified this year to account for the large investment dedicated to LabWindows/CVI 2013. Following the extensive list of new features in LabWindows/CVI 2013, the focus of 2014 development is on quality.  As a result, we plan to release a second service pack update in August 2014, LabWindows/CVI 2013 SP2, with additional improvements to stability. The next major release will be LabWindows/CVI 2015  in August 2015.
