ALtera 14.0 drops support for Nios2 on Cyclone III and Stratix III !?

Hi, 

 

I notice, based on 14.0 Altera IP release notes, that they appear to be dropping support for the Nios2 on Stratix III and Cyclone III starting with 14.0?!  

 

We were hoping for a patch for rd1127772013_702, a fairly serious bug, but perhaps I shouldn't hold my breath.  

 

Reference attached extract from the IP release notes, or the URLs below.

"III" devices are dropped from Quartus 14.0 altogether, not just NIOS IP. 

 

You will need to contact Altera directly with your specific concern.
