  2. If I have to vote for a best LV design feature, first of course is the graphical / dataflow model. Then the ease of hyperthreading / multicore processing. Another key feature wasn't mentioned, but, of course, is indispensable; The rich collection of libraries for science and engineering applications.
  3. Hi James, I have been experimenting with mercurial. I have been using SVN for many years and have never been able to really do successful branching. It always involved lots of confusion and uncertaingy. That said, it still beats out any other tool I had used prior, such as PVCS and CM Synergy. Fabiola de la Cueva recently advised I try mercurial and so our team has been experimenting. Having used SVN for so long I must say that the distributed system model takes some getting used to, but I like the benefit of having lots of backups and the merging does seem to work better than SVN ( not exactly a high standard). In my discussions with other LV architects and developers I think that mercurial seems to be the SCC cream that is rising to the top. I am beginning to migrate some of my legacy code and new projects to mercurial. I have also started using an agile project management system that allows me to link mercurial commits to project tasks. I did some experimentation with GIT but I couldn't get the merge to work correctly. I intentionally introduced conflicts in LabVIEW vis . When I merged, GIT did not announce any conflicts when it should have. I didn't do a lot of testing after this and just decided to go with mercurial based on the input from other LV developers.
