Known Issues with the Current Version

  • Software timers and FreeRTOS-MPU

    The software timer API is not yet included in the official distribution of FreeRTOS/source/include/mpu_wrappers.h.


Legacy Issues

  • Coldfire V2 CodeWarrior port

    The Coldfire V2 CodeWarrior code will not run with the latest (Eclipse) based CodeWarrior tools. A fix is posted on the support forum (post 4), and will be incorporated into the main release in due course.

  • Coldfire V1 CodeWarrior port

    The Coldfire V1 CodeWarrior projects will not automatically update to later CodeWarrior versions unless all unnecessary files are deleted from the FreeRTOS/Source directory first. See this support thread for more information.

  • MSP430 CrossWorks and GCC demos

    The CrossWorks demo has not yet been updated to use CrossWorks V2.0 or later. The GCC demo has not yet been updated to use the latest MSPGCC compiler version.

  • AVR32 demos

    The IAR Embedded Workbench demos for the AVR32 will not currently build if you are using a later version of the IAR tool chain. The issue is caused by changes to macro names within the compiler header files.

  • Silicon Labs SDCC ports

    Unfortunately these will not work with the latest compiler versions. The compiler version used to generate the port is now rather old, but is stated on the port documentation page.
