I love FreeRTOS but support for FreeRTOS within CrosWorks is weak. Id like a way to set up a new FreeRTOS project and a way to see the tasks in the Tasks window.

Whilst it would be nice to have a FreeRTOS "New project wizard", it's hard for us to track the development of FreeRTOS and add FreeRTOS support for all the devices we currently address. It's much easier if Richard would do this, and he has for a certain number of targets. So, I don't suspect there will be any New FreeRTOS project wizards; it's just that we have enough to do with CTL and other processors.

It would be useful to have a FreeRTOS project choice, so the system ISR handlers for FreeRTOS are in place (i.e. xPortPendSVHandler)

I never would have noticed this, but it's definately useful to see the state of your task this way (simply select the "Debug -> Threads" menu item in CW2.0). Thanks for the tip.
Tasks in the task window is already implemented; just do the following: 1) just search for "threads.js" in the latest freertos release; add this to your project 2) Add this line to freertosconfig.h: #define portREMOVE_STATIC_QUALIFIER // Required for debugger "threads.js" to work properly
