TI CCSv5 support for IDE Link?

I'm curious to know when there will be CCSv5 support for the IDE Link comparable to the old CCSv3 support. The latter is no longer supported by TI (on Win 7, at least). For the moment I can build code with the Embedded Coder, but I can't upload it and execute it in the current MathWorks idiom. I think I can hack up something by invoking a DSS from the "execute" makefile target that Emb. Coder generates, but I'm not sure how far that will get me. The really frustrating part is that all of the MathWorks Embedded Target demos seem tightly integrated with CCSv3, so they're unusable for me. This is a problem as I try to work out a process for automated testing.
When can we expect proper CCSv5 support? Where else can I turn for examples I can use with CCSv5, since the tutorials don't seem flexible enough?

Mark: I think it might be best for you to express the need for CCS v5 support via MathWorks Tech Support so that the development team hears about it. Please consider submitting an enhancement request.

Mark, I would have to agree with you. As of R2012a, Embedded Coder only supports a clunky makefile generation with CCSv4. There is no project generation or debugging support offerred for CCSv4/5 like that which existed for CCSv3.3. Nor is support officially mentioned yet for CCSv5, though I suspect the makefile process would work. I agree that you should raise a request for a feature enhancement through your license contact. You wouldn't be the first to do this, as I've previously done it. I suspect with R2012b or R2013a, support might be offered for the feature you requested. One thing you should consider, is that if you buy CCSv5, you can request from TI an installer for CCSv3.3 which still works with R2012a. I've been looking at the freescale PXS20/30 products recently. They have good block level support via the Motor Control Toolbox: <> (But for $8000? Ouch)

You can use ccs3.3 in win7, win8, win8.1 in compatible mode.
