Upgrade to Ubuntu Base 18.04 LTS. e-SDK works on Parallella board.
No desktop environment for hdmi version. epython seems not working.
Other than these, it's almost the same as Parabuntu 2016.11.1.

Hey, that's great news! Have you built and ran the epiphany examples and test programs?

Yes, it works. It's the same Linux kernel and FPGA bit file as Parabuntu 2016.11.1.

I may able to update Linux kernel in next few weeks. Can any body update FPGA design and e-SDK???

What needs to happen to the e-SDK? I thought you said all the examples and tests compile and run?

The example works. The e-gcc is based on gcc 5. I think it will be cool if it is updated.

Last entry in the changelog for e-gcc was on 2016-10-27 by Ola Jeppsson. I'm on gcc-7 here. I would imagine porting the epiphany code up two major versions of gcc would be quite a project. Maybe Ola could shed some light on what might need to be done.
