LabVIEW 2017 has VIM "Malleable" VIs. These would be great for simplifying the Variant to/from JSON VIs and may have other advantages, like allowing VIs inputs to accept arrays of values in addition to single values, and have the outputs adapt to arrays also. This is a pretty killer feature that could notably improve the API of JSONtext. The work project that I am starting to use JSONtext in has just upgraded to 2017 for other reasons, and it is possible that I will never have a pre-2017 app that I will use JSONtext in.
