Great news and nice work. Even though a soft FPU will never match the speeds that can be achieved by a hardware implementation, just having an FPU present will at least make it possible to run software which uses the FPU. Speed-wise I would be very happy if a soft FPU running on the 68080 could match the speed of a 60 MHz 68060 FPU and it may not be so far-fetched if it was optimized towards the 68080 core.
