Hi. I noticed that some FPGA will be discontinued. It looks like the entire Cyclone FPGA family is being discontinued. Is that correct? I haven't been with Altera for long but it's my understanding that the Cyclone was the best bet for Development kits and design demos? Is that still true?  

Here's the announcement:

No that's referring to Cyclone (1), the original devices from around 2003-2004.
