SW4STM32(GCC) Upgrade to V9

Posted by alsaleem on August 2, 2017

Some of my support questions revealed that more capabilities are available in FreeRTOS V9. I am usung SW4STM32 (GCC) cortex-M4. The IDE automatically setup the project to use FreeRTOS V8.2.1.

Comparing the auto-setup hierarchy with downloaded V9, showed that CMSIS_RTOS folder is missing from file hierarchy in FreeRTOS's.

I assume this was added by the IDE so other parts of the sw modules can use FreeRTOS.

Do you know of any incompatibility issues?

I am sorry to ask this question here since it should be asked to the IDE team. I found that this forum is more supportive than others.

The CMSIS wrapper is provided by ST. I cannot think of any reason why it would break by upgrading to a later version of FreeRTOS as the FreeRTOS versions are backward compatible.
