Announcing LabVIEW 2009

Yeah, the cat's out of the bag! We're publicly announcing LabVIEW 2009 today. If you're attending NIWeek next week, you'll of course get a more in-depth look at it, as well as a chance to pester developers about it :-)

I'm pretty excited about the Enhanced Block Diagram Cleanup feature. I used the first version of this feature a LOT in LabVIEW 8.6 when developing some VIs here for internal use. It is amazing but of course it had its limitations; those have largely been addressed in this release.

It's always a little strange seeing these feature names up on the web; they began as internal feature specifications and we've been talking about/referring to them for a long time now, haha.
