Online Compiler JSON Errors

I have several important projects that are using an older version of mbed-rtos that still included mbed_lib.json, which unofficially enables thread safety on mbed-dev. This configuration has been working fine up until today, when the online compiler started throwing erroneous Target does not support mbed OS 5 errors when I try to compile. Removing mbed_lib.json fixes the error, but also removes thread safety... I realize this is a somewhat unsupported configuration, but can somebody please look into this? I can't afford to migrate to mbed OS 5, since I'm relying on the ARM Micro Toolchain.

Hi Neil,

looking at the source code, these lines are causing the error:

        resources = scan_resources(src_paths, toolchain, inc_dirs=inc_dirs)
        if  (hasattr(toolchain.target, "release_versions") and
             "5" not in toolchain.target.release_versions and
             "rtos" in toolchain.config.lib_config_data):
            if "Cortex-A" in toolchain.target.core:
                raise NotSupportedException(
                    ("%s Will be supported in mbed OS 5.6. "
                     "To use the %s, please checkout the mbed OS 5.4 release branch. "
                     "See https://developer.mbed.org/platforms/Renesas-GR-PEACH/#important-notice "
                     "for more information") % (toolchain.target.name, toolchain.target.name))
                raise NotSupportedException("Target does not support mbed OS 5")

You can see rtos in the config data with not having 5 in the release version is invoking the exception

Means your target is not properly configured. what target are you using?

I'm using the LPC11U35 and LPC1549.

I managed to fix my issue by adding a custom mbed_lib.json file to my super-library, and manually defining the MBED_CONF_RTOS_PRESENT macro.
