Starting with version 1.85, the ZY1000 can optionally run NIOS Linux. This opens up new networking capabilities and improved remote support. The target support is unchanged, i.e. it makes no difference what operating system the target is running, whether ZY1000 is running eCos (as before) or NIOS Linux.
ZY1000 revB will be supported until April 1, 2011.
