> Hello revising IOTlers,
> another day another API change: After some discussion in [1] we decided to
> unify the typing of pointers of unspecified type. The first fall-out from
> that discussion was the changing of the pointer of the `content.ptr` field
> of `msg_t`. It is now `void *` instead of `char *`, so no explicit casting
> is needed anymore when using it.
> Cheers,
> Martine
