Migrating from v1.0.x to v2.0.0

Migrating a project from RTIC v1.0.x to v2.0.0 involves the following steps:

  1. v2.0.0 requires #![type_alias_impl_trait] and Rust Nightly.
  2. Migrating from the monotonics included in v1.0.x to rtic-time and rtic-monotonics, replacing spawn_after, spawn_at.
  3. Software tasks are now required to be async, and using them correctly.
  4. Understanding and using data types provided by rtic-sync.

For a detailed description of the changes, refer to the subchapters.

TL;DR (Too Long; Didn't Read)

  1. Add #![type_alias_impl_trait] to your crate, and use cargo +nightly.
  2. Instead of spawn_after and spawn_at, you now use the async functions delay, delay_until (and related) with impls provided by rtic-monotonics.
  3. Software tasks must be async fns now. Not returning from a task is allowed so long as there is an await in the task. You can still lock shared resources.
  4. Use rtic_sync::Arbiter to await access to a shared resource, and rtic-channel to communicate between tasks instead of spawn-ing new ones.
