Most real-time kernels come with many features, but very few documents, texts, or otherwise, actually tell you how or when to use these features. Many beginners try to use all of the features and find themselves fighting a battle of what, why, and how to incorporate them. This updated revision of the text gives a better overview of how and when to use the features - something really missing from the uC/OS-II book.
The OS itself has been updated, and several new features have been added to make the OS calls a little more consistent with each other. Very useful features include semaphores and queues are now an integral part of each task and thus run faster - and don't need to be set up separately. These are features which improve the performance of this version and simplify the design of the system.
The best part of the new text and OS is that it has been ported to several chip evaluation boards which are available for purchase. I got the one which runs the STM32 ARM M3 Cortex evaluation board. The instructions are clear, everything runs by following the directions, and the compiler, debugger are both available for download in a non-time limited version. The examples compiled the first time and "ran right out of the box".
Very highly recommended.
