FreeRTOS v10, now part of Amazon?
« on: November 30, 2017, 09:25:05 AM »
So, Amazon just bought out Real Time Engineers, and are running it under the AWS brand... WHIS is still running openrtos/safertos.

Some new inter thread communication primitives in v10, looks interesting. Still wierd.

Amazon would probably like it very much if IoT gadgets used their cloud hosting services. For similar reasons, Amazon bought a game engine that they're now offering for free.

Another change of note is the switch from GPLv2+linking exception to an MIT license.

I used the FreeRTOS TCP stack and it is very nice.   From what I understand, you will still always get what you have always could get.  There will be additional code to support SSL,  MQTT, etc.

The change to an MIT license is a nice change.
