  1. I don't mind the new green on the landing page of ni.com, but elsewhere on the site the new theme is a bit too much. I wanted to fix the near invisible links that @LogMAN ran into, but got a bit carried away: If anyone is interested in using the blue style, you can download it from here. Be warned it's not perfect, there's still lots of green bits on mouse over etc, but I find overall it makes the site much more readable. If blue isn't your thing, the primary color can be changed by setting the root --forrest-green color to something else.

  2. The worst, but really really rare case, would be for the tool to create damaged binary. But I'm doing a lot of checks to avoid that. And you already stumbled upon some of the checks: The tool does a lot of checks and raises exceptions if anything looks out of the ordinary. The exceptions are then captured and the block which raised them is exported as a binary file, without trying to make it XML. In case of VICD you'll actually always see this, as I didn't published parsing of the data. This means the VICD will just always stay as binary. If you want to be sure the data is identic

  3. It is growing on me too (with exceptions mentioned before). It actually feels refreshing in some sense, which is probably what they intended. It seems to me that they have totally forgotten about their existing customers. I actually haven't received any invitation, message or notification from NI about any of this (did anyone?). We are the ones that are most excited to use their products now and that doesn't seem to be worth anything. We are also the ones who are passionate about sharing our knowledge and excitement with the next generation of engineers. VIWeek, LAVA, LabVIEW Wiki, Ope

  4. It is uncommon enough to do the job -- truly unique is hard to do with the limits imposed on modern logos. Color: The folks who study this said that the blue was a color used all over the place in corporate logos; the green is much rarer. There's really only a handful of colors that are available for corporate logos: red and blue are the big dogs, then green/purple/orange. And black. Yellow doesn't have enough contrast -- as we constantly prove trying to put the LV logo on things, so it has to be boxed into stuff. Yes, you pick a shade of those colors, but your logo will be bucketed anywa
