Posted by Richard on April 15, 2008
V5.0.0 is uploading to SourceForge as I write this.


The parameters to the functions xQueueSendFromISR(), xQueueSendToFrontFromISR(),
xQueueSendToBackFromISR() and xSemaphoreGiveFromISR() have changed. You must

change has been made in response to numerous change requests, and makes this
family of API functions consistent with the calling convention used by

Remember - all calls to xQueueSendFromISR(), xQueueSendToFrontFromISR(),
xQueueSendToBackFromISR and xSemaphoreGiveFromISR() ***MUST*** be updated to
