Just this last week I found out that Rockwell Automation had released version 9.05 of RSLogix 500 and RSLogix Micro.
These new versions add support for Windows 8 and 8.1 while also removing support for Windows XP.
Aside from the expanded OS support, you won't find any new features or functions in 9.05, except for the updated support of the latest FactoryTalk Activation, as well as support for the series D 1747-L542.
However, as an added bonus both downloads now include the free version of RSEmulate 500, saving users from having to find and download it separately.
And the RSLogix Micro download now comes with the excellent Connected Components Building Blocks.
While not a major release as far as features, I do have to say Windows 8 support is a very welcome addition to this legacy software as it's not always possible for those maintaining in-plant automation systems to dictate which operating system their PC's come with.
