Xilinx SDSoC development environment - is it free or how much does it cost?

Is this development environment free or how much does it cost?

What are the limitations in the free version?

Are there extensions available for Digilent Zybo board, Avnet Zedboard, MYIR Z-turn board?

The Vivado 2015 Webpack edition is free and doesn't differ from the Design Edition that I can tell, except it only supports a very small set of devices.  So, yeah, if you're using the supported devices it's free.  Some evaluation kits comes with a device-specific DE voucher, but this is worthless than I can tell if it's one of the Webpack-supported devices.  Not sure if the DE contains bundled IP missing in the Webpack, that's a possibility.

They really don't make it easy to determine what the difference is.

(BTW, they just recently made Webpack a lot more useful, it used to be the high level synthesis tools weren't included, but now that they are frankly I'm not sure there's a good reason to even redeem a device-locked Design Edition voucher.)
