NIWeek 2017 marked the release of LabVIEW NXG 1.0. It's pretty awesome, but we’re already hard at work on the next release due out at the end of this year. We’re making a lot of investments in features like LabVIEW classes, libraries, type definitions and incorporating the feedback we’ve heard over the years from you, our faithful users.
In fact, a beta of LabVIEW NXG 2.0 is available right now at ni.com/techpreview. Here’s what you can expect:
Discover, configure and document your hardware with this visual interface. Discover connected hardware or build it from scratch using the entire product catalog.
NI Package Manager (NIPM)
Our new software delivery experience that simplifies driver discovery and installation, dependency management, and software installation. Packages will eventually be how all of our software and drivers are distributed – even add-ons, toolkits and instrument drivers.
We’re giving you absolute control over keeping your code organized and scalable. Most importantly: no more dependency conflicts. VIs don’t directly reference dependencies – instead, they defer to the project as a single source of truth.
Support for TestStand
LabVIEW NXG 2.0 will have classes, it’ll have application builder, it’ll support the majority of our PXI platform...AND it’ll work with TestStand 2017.
We know that it’s increasingly important to easily update the software on these systems and remotely monitor them. Our goal is to empower you to build rich web-based measurement interfaces using standard technologies without hiring web developer.
There’s a lot coming in the next version of LabVIEW NXG and many of the technologies can be incorporated into any existing system right away.
