Corte Madera, CA – November 27, 2017SL Corporation, a leading provider of real-time monitoring and visualization solutions, has announced the new V5.0a SL-GMS Developer for .NET and V7.0a SL-GMS C++/Developer for both 32-bit and 64-bit editions, to support Visual Studio 2017. Additionally, a new DirectX graphic option has been introduced with the 64-bit editions of .NET and C++ based SL-GMS.

SL-GMS Developer for .NET was specifically designed for rapidly developing content-rich and high performance dynamic GUI/HMIs for advanced control systems using Microsoft Visual Studio in the .NET Framework. The optional SL-GMS Custom Editor for .NET is designed to enable a user to easily build a custom dynamic graphic editor for the user’s specific control system. New V5.0a supports Visual Studio 2017 and .NET Framework 4.7 in addition to Visual Studio 2015 and .NET Framework 4.6.

SL-GMS C++/Developer and its SL-GMS Custom Editor option has been used in thousands of mission critical systems in control centers globally for process control, facility and network monitoring, traffic control, and aerospace/defense. New V7.0a supports Visual Studio 2017 in addition to Visual Studio 2015.

Additionally, a new DirectX (Direct2D) graphic engine option has been introduced to the 64-bit editions of V5.0a SL-GMS Developer for .NET and V7.0a SL-GMS C++/Developer. When using DirectX, graphic objects now have transparency capability via an alpha color component. The alpha component can also be controlled with dynamics. The anti-aliasing capability offered is also faster than the GDI+ anti-aliasing currently available.

The new V7.0a SL-GMS C++/Developer will also be available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 (32-bit and 64-bit editions) and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 (64-bit edition) in December 2017.

SL-GMS has provided the least complicated migrations for advanced control systems (DCS and SCADA) over the past 30 years. Migrations include shifting from UNIX to Linux, Windows, from C/C++ to ActiveX, Java, Microsoft .NET, and now supporting the shift to 64-bit native control systems with Windows 10 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

V5.0a SL-GMS Developer for .NET was released in November 2017. SL-GMS C++/Developer will be available in December 2017.
