There was a big announcement at the CLA Summit this morning: National Instruments recently acquired the GOOP Development Suite (GDS) from Symbio and has released a new NI owned and supported version of the product on the NI LabVIEW Tools Network (ni.com/toolsnetwork)
NI GOOP Development Suite will offer the full feature set as the final version provided by Symbio (v4.7), providing parity and ensuring that customers will be able to migrate existing systems to the new version. As before, this new version of GDS will continue to enhance LabVIEW’s native object-oriented capabilities by providing a collection of design patterns, scripting utilities, by-reference models, and UML generation tools. This version also includes improved support for Actor Framework class editing and creation.
NI GOOP Development Toolkit is now available for download from the LabVIEW Tools Network as a free add-on for LabVIEW 2013. Support will continue to be available from the online community for the tool, which can be found here: https://decibel.ni.com/content/groups/gdsgoop-development-suite
