LabVIEW 2018 Available for download


Recommended Posts

A more granular option than a 3 parts 21+GB download can be found here: http://www.ni.com/gate/gb/GB_EVALTLKTSIGPROC/US

The full list of components in the previous suite (2017) is here: http://www.ni.com/white-paper/54231/en/

Having been updated a couple of weeks ago, I am not sure when the equivalent for the 2018 edition will be uploaded, but it provides a good starting point for a systematic search.

Yeah I kinda missing the web install where you selected the things you wanted to download and then had an option to install or download more later.  Still storage is cheap these days so I'm just downloading the 21+GB of data then merge the DVDs into a single installer.  Probably going to be several hours more before it is done.

Should not NXG and the OPC toolkit be available in the Developer Suite download? Or is there an even bigger package?

A bit confused by all the variants, went for the Developer Suite as that is what our set used to be called...But NXG was at least included in the set we got on USB-sticks in 2017 (changed now?), and we also have OPC licenses...

The latter might always have been a separate download (not sure why it still is though...)?

The platform bundle web downloader looks more like the right one (http://www.ni.com/download/labview-development-system-2018/7406/en/). It does not state the name "Platform Bundle" until you have drilled down a bit.

I see now that that one does not include NXG, nor the OPC toolkit either (unless the latter has been renamed and is part of the communications package?). Have they chosen to separate NXG completely, contrary to what was done in 2017?

Great idea on the package manager, but this is only going to be a solution for those who are online, and are willing to download even more.  Having an offline installer is always important, for archival, but also for convenience for future installs.

Technically, although this is absolutely terrible and they should be ashamed, you can copy the package manager + package cache to an offline machine. 

And yes, this is honestly what they suggest you do: http://www.ni.com/tutorial/53918/en/

My online:offline device ratio is about 1:30 so a few weeks back I found out that you can, and immediately did, clone the entire cRIO linux package repository :(

      The 2018 Americas CLA Summit will be September 12-14 (Wed to Fri). As we say every year: the volunteer organizers can plan the event, reserve the space at NI, and invite the CLAs, but without content from the community, the CLA Summit cannot happen. We need your input!
      Please click here to fill out the application to present.
      Deadline for submissions: May 31, 2018
      Presentation Options
      We are making a few changes to the overall 2018 format in response to community feedback, but the three types of presentations remain the same as for 2017. We hope we can accommodate the kind of presentation you are comfortable presenting!
      Large Audience, 50 minutes: You will present once to the entire conference, expected to be ~250 CLAs. These are good for lecture-style presentations with big graphics. Small Audience, 50 minutes: You will present at most twice on the same day (only once if we have enough submissions). You will be addressing 2 different small audiences of ~50 CLAs. These are good for demo-oriented presentations with more of a Q&A style. Large Audience, 7 minutes: You will present once to the entire conference as part of a 7x7 rapid-fire topic presentation. Have your presentation rehearsed exactly as the 7 minutes is a hard cutoff! We will have a 7x7 on each of Wednesday and Thursday, and we prefer that the presentations be on that day’s theme.  
      Themes
      There will be two themes for the 2018 Americas CLA Summit, one on each of the two main days.
      Wednesday: Solutions to Complicated Programming Problems
      In this theme, we want to hear about solutions to the most difficult problems you have encountered while developing applications, specifically with the actual code design.  We are looking for topics that present the context of the problem and discuss the solution that you came up with.
      Some sample titles to inspire you:
      “How we got data from point A to point B in record time” “A common algorithm you might not recognize because we’ve optimized it so much” “Even our plug-ins had to have plug-ins” “The most insane customer requirement ever and the code that satisfied it” Thursday: Learning To Build Tools and Toolchains
      In this theme, we are looking for topics covering software tools you have written or workflows you have adopted to simplify your development process. Whereas past CLA Summits have asked for tools in a specific arena for people to use, here we want to focus on how tools get built. Specifically, we’d like you to discuss how those tools work on their insides. The focus on how to build tools is as important this year as what any particular tool does. Be prepared to explore design decisions and to discuss the pros and cons of the decisions you made when creating the tool. Ideally, we want either tools that are open for the community to help extend or instructions on how people can build their own to cover their own unique situations.
      Some sample titles to inspire you:
      “Custom VI Analyzer tools” “Get your CI Toolchain Up and Running in Under an Hour” “The MEAN stack and LabVIEW” “A tool for managing PPLs” Please click here to fill out the application to present.
