Will there be any further LINX development?

Hi,
I'm not sure if it is just me that feels that LINX development has been abandoned/shut down lately... :?
There has not been any major developments for some time, and some of the main users are not active anymore on this forum (it seems)...

So has NI "pulled the plug/stoped" further LINX development or are LINX 4.0 coming soon? :cry:
(If so, I hope it will be added support similar to TSXperts; with compilers for LabVIEW->Arduino(IDE) and GUI for Raspberry :mrgreen: )

That's an entirely different ball of wax. The benefit of LINX is that it can actually use the power of LabVIEW unlike the compiler you mention by TSXperts (it uses the syntax of LabVIEW but is still limited to the same things that the Arduino is capable of). Besides, if you want to actually compile code for Arduino simply use the toolkit by TSXperts, no need to reinvent the wheel.

I have tried out the TSxperts toolkit for getting GUI on the Raspberry Pi 3...
But somehow I like the LINX approach more with the peripherals and senors VI's (and the concept of creating runtime applications when uploading).

So my question remains, will there "ever" be added support for GUI on Raspberry Pi 3 using LINX? :geek:
(or is further LINX support/updates closed for good?) :(

*Bump*

It would be nice to get a strait answer from some of the main LINX developers regarding further updates?

Hi Stock,

We still watch the forums and we are generally paying attention.

I still watch for bugs that users find, and even a few months ago we put out a bug fix for a VISA issue. I'd like to do some bigger features like adding a local GUI, but I don't have the free time at the moment to work on it.

In general, I can say that we haven't abandoned the project, but lately we haven't had enough bandwidth to work on new features.

Thank your for the reply Ken! :D
I can fully understand that further development requires free time and I hope that GUI on Raspberry will be a priority, as I think most LINX users miss this support. :mrgreen:
I hope that you(and the rest of the developers) can keep the "rest of us" up to speed regarding further development when the time comes ;) !

Going to pick up this old thread and ask the same question again:
Will there be any more updates(versions) for LINX?
(Or is LINX development stopped for good...?)
