FreeRTOS, PIC32MZ, and Harmony

I am doing EARLY research on my Next Big Thing. The MZ series looks great. Now, I just stumbled across Harmony. I am getting a developer board from Microchip. So, my questions are…
Is Harmony ready for prime time? Rather have opinions from here rather than Microchip. :slight_smile:
Realistically, when will chips go on the market?
I have used FreeRTOS on MX series of PIC32, so is there any learning curve for me with Harmony or is it all under the covers of FreeRTOS?
Does Harmony mean I dont need to buy FreeRTOS+ TCPIP Library? Even though I am a complete noob at TCPIP?
Is anybody out there actually designing their next project based on Harmony?

thanks!!!

Harmony is NOT ready for prime time, 1.0 release due in a few weeks (we
hope)
I have FreeRTOS 7.x running with serial support, new USB stack will
support chip when its released
I have parts from Microchip in 12x12 package running on my boards
My board runs FreeRTOS demo just fine, with minor changes to support board
I/O changes, I added back serial testing to the demo…
A unit has been running the demo here for over 60 day now, with out an
error.
My serial driver are on the FreeRTOS site

Thanks for the honest opinions. This is the kind of information I am looking for.
Time is money for us. Using the FreeRTOS+ products vs. me creating TCPIP and HTTP functionality becomes a no-brainer.

thanks again!!!
