2014.1 Vivado - Bitstream options are not updated for second project opened in a single Vivado session

Description

I have two designs (for example, a Zynq design and a Virtex-7 Design).

When I open both designs in the same instance of Vivado, the bitstream properties depend on which design is loaded first.

Example: I have created a Zynq design and a Virtex-7 design. 

  • If I open the Vivado IDE and open the Virtex-7 design and then open the Zynq design, the bitstream properties for the Zynq design will be those of the Virtex-7 design.
  • If I open the Vivado IDE and open the Zynq design and then open the Virtex-7 design, the bitstream properties for the Zynq design will be those of the Zynq design.
 

Solution

When Vivado 2014.1 reads or load the bsoptions.cfg file and creates an attrspec and hatattr, it remains for the duration of the process and is not correctly cleared when the second design is loaded.

This issue is fixed in Vivado 2014.2.
