69 This implements the "new Instruction Set" architecture for the Zip CPU. It's
a massive change set, that touches just about everything but probably not
enough of everything. Please see the spec.pdf for a description of this
new architecture.

61 Simplified the bus delay logic. Depends upon the stall line being irrelevant
outside of a bus cycle.

56 Here's a bit of work in progress for getting the Zip CPU working on a XuLA2
board. Many changes include: the existence of a cpudefs.v file to control
what "options" are included in the ZipCPU build. This allows build control
to be separated from the project directory (one build for a XuLA2 board,
another for a Basys-3 development board). Other changes have made things
perhaps harder to read, but they get rid of warnings from XST.

A big change was the addition of the (* ram_style="distributed" *) comment
for the register set. This was necessary to keep XST from inferring a block
RAM and breaking the logic that was supposed to take place between a register
read and when it was used.

36 *Lots* of changes to increase processing speed and remove pipeline stalls.

Removed the useless flash cache, replacing it with a proper DMA controller.

"make test" in the main directory now runs a test program in Verilator and
reports on the results.

34 Bunches of changes, although very little changed with the core itself.

Regarding the core, some bugs were fixed within zipcpu.v (the CPU part of the
core), so that the debugger can change the program counter. The debugger
can now halt the CPU and then view, examine, and modify registers to include
the program counter, although live changes to the CC register have not been

There was also a bug in the stall handling of the wishbone bus delay line. This
has now been fixed.

Moving outwards to the system, some parameters have been added to zipsystem
to make it more configurable for whatever environment you might wish to place
it within. Other minor clean ups have taken place, mostly to the internal

Lots of changes, though, to the assembler. The big one is the implementation
of #define macros, C style. Several buggy macros were in sys.i. These have
been fixed. The Makefile has been adjusted so that the build of test.S, which
depends upon sys.i, is now properly dependent upon sys.i for make purposes.
Further, not only will zpp, the assembler preprocessor, handle #define macros,
it will also recursive #defines. The assembler expression evaluator has also
been updated to properly handle both operator precedence, as well as modulo

The master system test file, test.S, found in the sw/zasm directory has been
updated to reflect these new capabilities. (I really need to move it to the
bench/asm directory, so you may expect that change sometime later.)

15 Updated the core CPUOPS module to make certain that the carry was properly
set on right shifts. (Carry is then the last bit shifted out to the right,
and has no relation to the high order bits of the word.) Also fixed a bug
in the busdelay.v file that prevented our Quad SPI flash controller from
working. (This bug fix has not yet been tested ...) Our test.S program, the
closest thing we have to a regression test and found in the sw/zasm directory,
still successfully passes in Verilator.

2 An initial load. No promises of what works or not, but this is where the
project is at.
