Perspective is a new visualization alternative, with a large focus on mobile-first design principles. In 8.1, there will be “native” desktop applications to launch Perspective projects, as well, but Vision is not going anywhere.
This page is continually being updated by the folks in the training department:
Perspective is a completely separate, web-first visualization system. It has none of the technical limitations that came from the Mobile module’s requirement to “bridge” Java/Swing (desktop-only) with the web browser. As such, the list of “component events” is extensive:
The Vision module is not going anywhere, and will not be removed or demoted in any way by Perspective. In fact, Vision is receiving some big upgrades in 8.0 - including brand new native client launchers for a completely reworked native application experience.
This is completely untrue. Backwards compatibility has always been a huge part of Ignition, and the Vision module is no exception. This really can’t be said enough, and I’d appreciate you not throwing out false/unfounded information: Vision is not going anywhere, and Perspective and Vision can absolutely co-exist with each other.
