On December 3rd, NI went public with some important news impacting LabVIEW NXG.
In their blog post titled "Our Commitment to LabVIEW as we Expand our Software Portfolio", Omid Sojoodi, VP of Software R&D and Stefanie Breyer, VP of Product Planning, let us in on NI's software product strategy:
- We will integrate the strengths of the NXG platform into our LabVIEW 2021(+) codebase, which will result in the best of both worlds. This means centralizing our investments in LabVIEW in a way that enables us to deliver even more value to LabVIEW users in the years ahead.
- We will continue to advance our NXG-based portfolio of solutions such as the NXG Web Module, SystemDesigner, as well as our expanding suite of configuration-based products such as FlexLogger and VeriStand. As part of this commitment, you can expect to see the NXG Web Module and SystemDesigner integrated into other parts of our portfolio.
- We will cease development efforts on LabVIEW NXG and release the final version - LabVIEW NXG 5.1 – in 2021. We will not release new versions of LabVIEW NXG starting in 2022.
We encourage you to read the full blog post for more information on the reasons behind NI's decision and their plans for LabVIEW's future.
