Issue Details

I'm currently running LabVIEW 2014 SP1 but am interested in upgrading to a newer LabVIEW service pack. When can I expect LabVIEW 2016 Service Pack 1 to be released.


Since NI is shifting the annual release of LabVIEW from August to May, there will be no LabVIEW 2016 SP1 released. However, moving forward there will be service pack released as expected for future versions of LabVIEW.

Additional Information

Many customers that are concerned with stability and security will only update to newer versions of LabVIEW once a service pack is released. Historically, service packs are released 7-8 months after the initial release of a LabVIEW version. This trend should continue moving forward from LabVIEW 2017.
