General Question on FreeRTOS / Networking History

Posted by blipton on June 11, 2015

Does anyone know the timeline of tcp/ip stacks on FreeRTOS?

I know its now is called "FreeRTOS+TCP", but is that the same thing as "FreeTCPIP"?

A while back I saw a Nios / FreeRTOS project, but it used FreeRTOS and lwip. Did FreeRTOS originally use Interniche then lwip and now a new FreeRTOS+TCP?

Some of these projects are very old. Some very early projects in the FreeRTOS download used uIP. Then some used lwIP. FreeRTOS+TCP is uIP with a few hacks to make it appear faster.

embTCP (Interniche) came much later, and FreeRTOS+TCP is our own new stack that is not based at all on any of the above.
