We’re excited to share that we’ve released FreeRTOS V10.3.1 and are beginning work on an upcoming LTS release. You can follow the progress on FreeRTOS LTS development on the LTS Roadmap page, and learn more about all updates in our latest blog.
How long the “long-term” is?
Does that mean that the “low power support”-section of the “mastering”-manual gets written? I, for one, have been waiting for a good description of tickless idle.
Late last year we published a blog with our intent for our LTS releases to be maintained for at least 3 years. We will provide official guidance that will define LTS support timeline explicitly at a later date. You can read the blog referenced here: https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/iot/long-term-support-for-amazon-freertos/.
For your question about the “mastering” manual getting updated or at least the docs for tickless idle, I will bring this up with the team to see about prioritization. We also encourage the community to submit contributions for documentation as well. Creating a thread in the kernel category and driving those discussions to create a well written document is something we welcome anyone to do.
