Version Found: v13.0

Where do I find the driver software and documention for the Altera 16550 Compatible UART?


The Altera® 16550 Compatible UART IP MegaCore® function incorrectly appears as a component in Qsys for Quartus® II software version 13.0, and is not included in version 13.1. 

The MegaCore function, software driver and documentation is currently scheduled to be available in a future version of the Quartus II software. 


Is it still not available ?


Thank you,
