Software Product Life Cycle Policies
National Instruments application software products have standard life cycle policies that define release frequency and support. There are three standard life cycle policy phases for software.
Phases of Software Life Cycle
1 See specific details on hardware support and drivers on the Drivers and Updates Page. Modules and toolkits are version-specific; see LabVIEW Module and Toolkit Compatibility Information for more details. Device driver distributions are tested on the most current version of the specific LabVIEW release (for example, the most current version for LabVIEW 8.2.x and for LabVIEW 8.5.x are 8.2.1 and 8.5.1, respectively)
