Updated: The LEGO® MINDSTORMS® NXT Software version 1.1 to be released in August 2007

May 7, 2007

The team behind the LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT is happy to announce that from August 2007 the LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT Software version 1.1 will be available for all users in five languages (English, German, French, Dutch and Japanese). Among its new features this version includes full support for Windows Vista (32-bit and 64-bit) and the new Intel-based Macintosh systems.

In addition, the new NXT Software offers improved performance and speed, especially for large program development. New compression methods free up 30kb of useable memory on the NXT Intelligent Brick and shrink most programs and sound files by 40%. The software programming module, called NXT-G, features intelligent scroll + more than 100 other enhancements.

Availability to users:

The LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT software version 1.1 will be available in the LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT #8527 robotics toolset from August 2007.
