The Sigasi 2.25 release brings an improved Quartus II integration, a linter rule for new VHDL instantiations, and lots of bug fixes

Quartus integration

This release brings support for Quartus II 14 and simplifies the filenames in Sigasi. If all HDL files in your project have unique names, the importer uses the file name withouth paths. Only if you have duplicate file names, the complete path will be used.

Altera Quartus II integration

We have also fixed a bug for Quartus II projects that use VHDL libraries (ticket 3049)

Check for missing optional associations in port and generic maps

In VHDL ports and generics can have default values. So it is legal to omit these in the port map or generic map in instantiations. Since this is often a source of errors that are difficult to find, we developed a linting check for this.

Other new and noteworthy improvements

Sigasi now more strictly checks the use of operators ("+", "*", "-", ...). This helps you to catch typical typos a lot faster.
