What's New in VIPM 2022 for MacOS and Linux

  • VIPM¬†is now built as a¬†64-bit application,¬†which greatly simplifies installation on 64-bit Linux and improves compatibility with newer versions of MacOS that dropped support for 32-bit apps.¬†
  • LabVIEW 2022 (and earlier) support on MacOS and Linux, which the community has been increasingly requesting.
