Dear Secrux,

I can only really refer you to our most recent release at the beginning 
of the year (ethernet-v0.5). The plans for our next release are still 

Obviously if you have access to a Digilent Nexys4ddr you can get started 
straight away with our prebuilt images. Once this works you will want to 
go through our build tutorial to gain familiarity. In terms of 
contribution we are looking for:

1.    Any kind of Computer Science research that uses our system and can 
mention it in papers.
2.    Imaginative examples of tag architecture to demonstrate security 
3.    Any hardware performance boosts, or analysis of where performance 
boosts will come from.
4.    Bug fixes and/or software enhancements.
5.    Ports to support other FPGA boards.
6.    Corrections or improvements to documentation or tutorial instructions.
7.    Put your own suggestion here.

Because of the flexibility and low cost of the Digilent platform we are 
not looking to move to a larger platform just now.
