Switched MISRA compliance checking from PC Lint to Coverity, and updated from MISRA C:2004 to MISRA C:2012.
Several security enhancements to the FreeRTOS ports with Memory Protection Support (MPU) for greater security.
Enhanced tracing support for enhanced integration with tracing tools.
Several other enhancements and optimizations such as updates to
vTaskGetRunTimeStatsthat protect against buffer overflows, heap hardening, CMake improvements etc.
FreeRTOS V11.0.0 is a drop-in replacement for FreeRTOS V10.6.x.
