Project released a beta based on an enhanced TMCC, and is looking for
help to bring FpgaC up to a production stable level.

The starting base of TMCC was pretty primative, and really a step
toward a C based HDL. I would like to see FpgaC evolve into a
full featured C that targets reconfigurable computing rather than
just another C subset HDL that competes with VHDL/Verilog.
Steps toward that goal have included moving toward std C syntax
and moving TMCC hardware specific features to pragmas. TMCC
violated std C scoping rules and didn't implement Struct, Union,
enum, or typedef -- all of which I would like to see added into the
next release of FpgaC by rewriting the yacc/lex and symbol manager.
FpgaC is looking for developers at all levels, and hopefully can grow
over time to support std C on FPGAs targeted specifically to be the
C to netlist tool for reconfigurable computing for students, hobbiests,
and small businesses that can not afford the expensive tools used
by corporate developers.
