NI has upgraded its LabView software to make it more user-friendly and efficient for test professionals and engineers.

The company, formerly known as National Instruments, has upgraded the software with Zoom for Block Diagram, Quick change for faster object creation and Visual improvements to Highlight Execution and option for execution speeds. It also includes faster re-building of applications and packed project libraries and the virtual environment support for Python that was announced earlier in the year.

“Additions like Zoom and quick change are meaningful in a graphical development environment, and we are energized by both the engagement we got from the community during design, as well as the impact we know it will have,” said Eric Reffett, Director of Product Management at NI.

In addition, NI and JKI entered a long-term collaboration to focus on improving package-related workflows in LabVIEW.  This included expanding VI Package Manager (VIPM) features, making it more robust and versatile for developers, as well as the addition of Dragon. This initial release is focused on using projects and packages, and the relationship will continue to improve the way developers share and re-use code.

“I’m thrilled to work with NI,” says Jim Kring, CEO of JKI. “JKI first created VIPM to help LabVIEW developers build and reuse LabVIEW code libraries, and it has since helped developers for over a decade. This collaboration with NI expands both the functionality available to all LabVIEW developers in VIPM, as well as the access developers have to resources available in, but this initiative is just the beginning.”
