Thanks for sharing the estimated timeline for release of v2.2 Library.
It would be really helpful if you can share some document that shows how to build application for Cortex M4 core from a “Windows host” using the “ARM gcc toolchain” similar to this application note: https://developer.toradex.com/knowledge-base/freertos-on-the-cortex-m4-of-a-colibri-imx7 (explains for Linux Host).
I have had success building the demo app in the FreeRTOS folder from the command line. Except that I had to modify the batch file to provide the complete mingw32 executable path. Somehow the build steps are not able to automatically find the Mingw-32 path even though it has been added to the path environment variable.
But for someone like me who is not well initiated with the Unix build environment, creating make-files for my own embedded application and then building it every-time from the command prompt and then debugging it from the command prompt will take my and the team’s attention/focus away from the actual control application that needs to be written on the Cortex M4.
btw we have been thinking that since the FreeRTOS gets compiled with the application code itself, from the development environment’s perspective it must perceive the whole project as a bare-metal project. So (please correct my understanding is wrong). there should be a way to use either the community edition of DS-5 IDE, or just Eclipse CDT, add the ARM GCC toolchain (which already works from the command line) and build our application in an IDE.
