11.3 PlanAhead - Why is Auto Pin Placement not working for Virtex-6, Virtex-5 and Spartan-6?


When I try to run the Auto-Place I/O ports from the tools menu in PlanAhead, I receive the following message: 


"Sorry this feature is not yet supported for this architecture"  


Why is this happening? Will this be supported in the future?


Currently Virtex-6 and Spartan-6 devices are not supported for Auto-place I/O ports from PlanAhead. This feature will be disabled for Virtex-5 starting in 11.3. 


This feature is currently planned to be enabled for all these devices in PlanAhead release 12.1.
