XESS open sources XSTOOLS

XESS, makers of a selection of Xilinx based FPGA prototyping boards, has open sourced their XSTOOLS. This is great news for linux users as this enables the community to update and maintain a port of the standard tools — the last set of linux tools were the 4.0.6 version which doesn’t support the newer boards. In the recent past, I tried porting a newer version of XSTOOLS to linux again but gave in due to the USB and Windows dependencies in the newer code base. Hopefully the availability of a central project will mean an up to date linux port.
