    Since Xilinx no longer even lists ISE on its download page, and clearly is moving away from ISE and towards Vivado, can we expect a version of the tutorials that cover Vivado?
    Since the 'education' side of your products seems important to Numato, I think it makes sense to keep the reference to available 'tools' up to date.

    It is true that Xilinx stopped developing ISE and 14.7 will be the last release out there. But we don't think Xilinx will abandon ISE completely anytime sooner. Vivado does not support their legacy devices including a bunch of CPLDs, Spartan 3 devices and Spartan 6 devices. So the only way to use any of these devices is to use ISE. ISE is still available for download from the link below (link works as of 2nd March 2015).

    We are in the early stages of designing products based on Xilinx's 7 series devices (Artix/Kintex) and when they are ready, we will write some tutorials on Vivado for sure.

    Thanks,
    Tom
