Hello,

When can we download the windows version? If this is not possible in the near future, is there a way to use it via built-in ubuntu on windows 10?

thanks

I'm about to start working on it. Assuming everything goes smoothly, I'd say about a month.

I have not used the built in Ubuntu on Windows 10. I would expect that it just works. If you have access to a Windows 10 machine and are able to try it out, I'd be super interested to know how it goes.

Hi vhdl-tool,

Yes I have a windows 10 box, and would be interested in trying it out.

BTW. why all the secrecy? I was trying to figure out who is behind the project but having no luck.

Currently looks like a solo-effort to me, which is not good for a tool people might start relying on.

I think this is a great idea, VHDL is severely lacking in good tooling, and Sigasi price is off the charts for most engineers.

Best regards, Stjepan

Hi Stjepan,

Are you interested in trying it using the Windows subsystem for Linux or do you want a native version? It might be possible to run it on WSL right now using the Linux binary on the downloads page. The native version still requires some work...

I'm not intentionally being secretive. This website is about the tool, what it does and how to use it. I can be contacted for bug reports. I don't think that who I am is that relevant.

I'm an FPGA engineer. I created this tool to help me out with my job. Yes, it's a part time solo effort. I understand that that makes it more difficult to rely on. But, if people start relying on it that's because it works for them. It doesn't have any annoying licence checks so its not going to suddenly stop working. Furthermore there is no lock-in. You don't have to change your project structure and you can use practically any text editor.

I'll add a post here when the native Window's version is ready. In the meantime, I encourage you to check out the Linux version. Everything's easier on Linux :)

Cheers, Adam

Is there anyway you can make a linux binary that works with Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation release 6.6

This is what they currently have installed on my linux box.

I'm running into issues that i'm currently using glib 2.12 and need at least 2.14.

I've tried cross compiling 2.14 w/ no avail.

Would really like to try this out rather than use Sigasi.

Thanks,

Ricky

Unfortunately, I can't make a binary for Red Hat 6.6. glibc 2.12 is just too old and I cant find a version of the compiler I am using (GHC for Haskell) that supports it.

FYI, I tried it in WSL, but it didn't work. Execution would hang for 20+ seconds on every execution, even printing the help. That being said, I don't have the latest WSL updates. It make work on newer versions of Windows.
