Demo bundle with RISC-V ?

Hi, dear support,

Out of curiosity, since RISC-V is getting hot in embedded system now, for the demo bundle of Xilinux, do you have plan to have a demo bundle with RISC-V version in FPGA ? Thanks

There are no such plans at the moment. And I'm somewhat skeptic regarding RISC-V on FPGA, having some experience with Linux on Xilinx' Microblaze, which worked, but ran painfully slow. Soft processors always have difficulties with caching and MMUs. Maybe RISC-V will do better.
