Indeed there is.  The propeller 2 is well along in it's design, and as  
far as I know, could even be in preproduction, though I've not been  
watching the forums lately, so don't know where it's at in the cycle.   
The new version is supposed to have much more ram, and be considerably  
faster.  It's the propeller 2 which I was actually wanting the fpc  
port for anyhow, since that's why they ported gcc in the first place.
I'm not the least bit enthused with any of the proposed tools for prop  
2 development, and wanted to get in on the ground floor with something  
more usable if possible.
I think adding fpc to the list of compilers supported by prop2 would  
be fantastic.
