Hi Kranthi, I have used the student edition (a prior version) a long time ago and in my opinion webpack seems better. It does support some devices even upto Virtex II, some of the Spartan and all of the CPLD devices. You can simulate your design (ships with Modelsim from Mentor), sythesize your design, perform post synthesys simulations (similar to back-annotation), floorplan and come out with the configuration bit files. One good feature with this is that you can generate simulation vectors graphically and internally it generates the test bench for you. Try it!!

Good luck, Digvijay.
