So..
Just saw @Flype talk about the new MPU. Sounds really cool, but then I remembered I'd also wanna know the status of "the other *PU"..

Question is rather simple as it is then:
"Is the FPU part of the gold core or not"? ;-)

If Yes:
      How extensive is the implementation in terms of supporting same instructions in hardware as 040 FPU or 060 FPU (to avoid the need for new math libs to catch unsupported instructions etc)

If No:
      When is it planned to be released? +/- Quarter of a year.. ;-)

Sorry Gunnar has stated multiple times that the FPU is not s part of gold core.
We all would like to see that FPU in action :)
From what i know the FPU will be far more advanced then 68040 and 060.
It will be fully pipelined etc.

When the Dev team feels like it's good enough to release. No one really knows at this moment.

End of summer. But not a holy cow, and might have bit of periodic feature updates and fixing after, as with all previous cores (silver and gold). But, not so far far away ;-)

Everyone is excited, especially those wanting v4 Vamps that need to be based on that core.

And then finally, we could have those V1200 and Standalone Vamps. Even CD32 was mentioned ...

Summer has not started where I am from. It is the beginning of Winter here in Oz. So plenty of time for Gold 3.0.
From other posts I think around September will be closer.

Cheers,
