I've just tried the WebPack 7.1 under linux for the first time. Globally, I'm very happy not to have to start vmware or another machine each time I want to have some work done !
I haven't yet tried it in depth, just small things, see what has changed, etc ...
The whole thing seem still based on WindU though ...
Some negatives : - The RTL schematics generated by "View RTL schematics" are ... wrong ! At first I thought the synthesis was completly off but finally viewing the technology schematics, I saw it's in fact the RTL schematics generator itself that's way off. (Not all time, just on a few quite simple case, it just got it wrong imho) - When in the technology schematic, viewing lut content shows nothing at all. - Spartan 3 support for > 1500 is gone ... but we knew that would be the case. - It's not _that_ pretty ;) (far from eye candy like macosx)
I still need to do more advanced test like see if there is any gain compared to previous version.
Go & Try it !
