e Running Inside VCS Anniversary Updates?

Comments(1)Filed under: Testbench simulation, IES, multi-language, Incisive Enterprise Simulator (IES), e, Specman, IEEE 1647

It's been a year since I heard the first solid report about Synopsys supporting the e language (IEEE 1647-2008) natively inside VCS.  (Note a key distinction here: VCS has interfaced with e language and/or Specman-driven testbenches for years -- that's not what I'm referring to.  The issue here is VCS running e code natively like it runs Verilog natively.)  In the past year I have had many more anecdotes trickle in about VCS supporting e natively in a growing number of companies, so by this point one can imagine the project is pretty far along with their lead customers.

Thus, I ask anyone who has seen VCS-e out "in the wild":

What are your impressions of it so far? 

Do you think the capability is on track for a public soft launch at DAC 2009?
