We are excited to announce that registration for the FreeRTOS Extended Maintenance Plan (EMP) is now open. FreeRTOS is a real-time operating system for microcontrollers. FreeRTOS EMP subscriptions allow embedded developers to receive critical bug fixes and security patches on their chosen FreeRTOS Long Term Support (LTS) version for up to 10 years beyond the end of its initial support period. During the subscription period, developers will receive notifications for upcoming patches on FreeRTOS libraries, allowing them to systematically plan their product maintenance activities. This helps developers to secure their microcontroller-based devices for years, save operating system upgrade costs, and reduce the risk associated with patching their devices.
