I noticed on the website there was mention of a FreeRTOS supported variant of uIP

In the example files there are the following directories:
* \FreeRTOSV6.1.0\Demo\Common\ethernet\FreeRTOS-uIP
* \FreeRTOSV6.1.0\Demo\Common\ethernet\FreeTCPIP

Can anyone comment of the difference between the two projects?

The target I use is based on the Atmel AT91SAM7X-EK, but this example uses
  * \FreeRTOSV6.1.0\Demo\uIP_Demo_IAR_ARM7\uip

Is there anyone who has successfully integrated the supported variant of uIP with this platform?
Any relevant comments regarding uIP on this platform with FreeRTOS are gratefully received…

FreeRTOS-uIP is deprecated, and kept only so existing demo apps continue to compile.

FreeTCPIP (based on uIP) is newer and still under development - there are lots of plans about what to do with this but too little time to implement them ;o)  FreeTCPIP is based on more up to date uIP files, that are not directly from the uIP 1.0 code base.  Not all the modifications from FreeRTOS-uIP have been migrated into this new version yet.  I want to limit the number of demos that use the new version at the moment so there are fewer to re-test once the stack source itself has been updated.
