1.2?? We recently released Nios II v1.1 for shipment and the next version is under development. Features for each release are normally announced by Altera at or near the time of release; please be patient.
Hello,Regarding Linux updates - our distribution integrates well with the Altera tool set. That means as a user it is much easier to use our tools than with some competing solutions. However, when the Altera tools are updated, that means we have to update our stuff (Eclipse component, mainly) even if the underlying Linux kernel itself remains at the same version level. The 1.2 update was produced so that users with the latest Altera tools (Nios 1.01) could install and use our Linux distribution. Shortly, there will another update released that will allow users to use the Nios 1.1 and Quartus 4.2 tools with our distribution. This particular update does include a Linux kernel update (to 2.6.9), and adds: - POSIX message queues - syscontrol - cifs smb mount points (allows you to hook up to a Windows share) - other minor improvements and fixes Robert
