Vision & Perspective: Which Module is Best for Your Next Project? Carl Gould and… Wed, 02/27/2019 - 09:05
The excitement is building as we put the finishing touches on Ignition 8 in preparation for its upcoming release. Ignition 8 is currently in open beta and we appreciate all of the great feedback we’ve gotten so far through that program. The highest-profile feature of Ignition 8 will be a new, mobile-focused visualization module called the Ignition Perspective Module.
Ignition v7.9.10: New Client Launchers and Upgrade Logic Kathy Applebaum Thu, 11/29/2018 - 09:21
Big changes have been happening in Java lately; the most notable change being Java’s new 6-month release cycle for major versions. In the past year, we’ve seen the release of Java 9, Java 10, and Java 11. Support for Java Web Start was dropped in Java 11 and some garbage collectors were dropped in Java 9. Obviously, this can quickly get confusing for Ignition users, so one of the main focuses of Ignition v7.9.10 is to make these changes easier for you.
Our Perspective on the Vision Module Carl Gould and… Wed, 10/03/2018 - 11:43
At ICC 2018, we announced that Ignition 8 will be released in February 2019. A major part of Ignition 8 is the all-new Ignition Perspective Module, which will offer Ignition users a mobile-first, browser-based design environment for the first time. Perspective is the kind of solution we’ve been wanting to build for years and our excitement about it must’ve been contagious because we’ve been getting a lot of questions lately about Perspective and its relationship to the Vision Module. Some of you have even asked if Perspective is replacing the Vision Module in the near future. Our short answer is no, the Vision Module isn’t going anywhere; in fact, Ignition 8 will include major improvements to Vision. We’re excited to release Perspective and we know that Vision will continue to be a valuable, highly effective module.

Things are very busy here in Inductive Automation’s software engineering division. We are working full speed on getting Ignition 8 done, and we hope you will be as excited as we are about all of its new features. But that doesn’t mean we’ve stopped working on Ignition v7.9. In fact, we’ve just released Ignition v7.9.9, which contains over 40 new features and bug fixes.
