LabVIEW 2015 Release Details

What Is LabVIEW 2015?

LabVIEW 2015, the foundation of NI’s platform-based approach, is the solution to build your system faster. The latest version of LabVIEW delivers speed improvements, development shortcuts, and debugging tools to empower developers to efficiently interact with the systems they create. LabVIEW 2015 continues to standardize the way users interact with almost any hardware through the reuse of the same code and engineering processes across systems, saving time and money as technology advances, requirements evolve, and time-to-market pressure increases.

This version includes new features for LabVIEW and all LabVIEW modules as well as updates and bug fixes to the rest of the LabVIEW platform. Standard Service Program (SSP) members can download LabVIEW 2015 now.
