Xilinx Petalinux 2015.4 released today.

Today Xilinx released new Petalinux 2015.4 which is synchronized with Xilnx Vivado and SDK 2015.4.
So, now I can finally switch to a latest Vivado and play with Vivado HLS which now included to all Vivado editions including free of cost WebPack.

This release based on Kernel version 4.0 (Xilinx repo tag xilinx-v2015.4), U-boot 2015.07 and GCC 4.8.3 with experimental support of C++11 (GCC 5.1 and later support release C++11, before 5.1 support was experimental). It also includes Vivado DDR patch and support Zynq Ultrascale+ (the only released ZU9).

Unfortunately, Xilinx very slow in adopting latest Eclipse and CDT for it's SDK. Such, current CDT version is 8.8.0 and XSDK still uses 8.3.0 which is a few years old. Very, very conservative.

Time for some hacking :-)
