I am very proud to announce that the next release of LabWindows/CVI contains the first set of user-suggested features sourced from the LabWindows/CVI Idea Exchange. Over 15 Idea Exchange features ranging from a better batch build dialog to new features for UI controls were implemented to better meet the needs of LabWindows/CVI developers. Thank you for submitting and voting for all the great feature ideas and helping us to improve and shape the future of LabWindows/CVI!
New to the Idea Exchange? The LabWindows/CVI Idea Exchange is the most direct way to let us know about functionality that you would like to see in LabWindows/CVI or behavior that is bothersome or inconvenient. We launched the LabWindows/CVI Idea Exchange in November 2010 to give programmers an avenue to collaborate on feature ideas and communicate these suggestions to our own developers. If you would like to influence future versions of LabWindows/CVI, submit a new idea or vote on the ones you like. Please visit ni.com/cvi-ideas.
LabWindows/CVI 2012 Preannouncement: these features are not available until the release of LabWindows/CVI 2012 coming soon!
