Quartus Prime Standard v19.1

Quartus Prime Pro v19.1 was released recently but so far v19.1 is unavailable for Quartus Prime Standard (and Quartus Lite). I understand that the devices supported by Quartus Prime Standard are more or less legacy now and their related tool-chain is not under active development anymore. However, I do not see why the HLS and OpenCL compilers which are device-independent are not updated for Quartus Prime Standard. Is Intel going to update Quartus prime Standard anymore or is v18.1 going to be the last version ever released?

Hi,

 

There is no official announcement about this.

 

Thanks

When trying to update Quartus, I see that there is now a Quartus Prime standard 19.1 for Linux, but not for Windows.

From this post, it seems that the release of this version has already some history.

 

Last time I looked, we are actually paying for support for Quartus Prime Standard, so I would expect an official announcement about a timeline by now.

Sorry, for the somewhat nasty comment, I see that progress has been made since the original post.

In fact, I was positively surprised that there was a functional update of Quartus Standard in the works.

 

Nevertheless, after reading the release notes of verison 2019, it does makes a bad impression that we are instructed to periodically check for updates in a release note dating 2019.09.30.

Having problems is understandable, we are all developers after all, keeping your customers on-hold for 3 months (or at least that is what it looks like) is less understandable.
