Dear folks

The following deprecated feature will be removed from ndn-cxx soon:
Block::fromBuffer overloads with output parameter
ndn::encoding::prependBlock
ndn::encoding::prependByteArrayBlock
ndn::encoding::nonNegativeIntegerBlock
ndn::encoding::prependBooleanBlock
ndn::encoding::booleanBlock
ndn::encoding::dataBlock
ndn::encoding::nestedBlock

If you have code that depend on this feature and cannot be fixed now,
please reply no later than Jul 26 12:00 UTC.
Otherwise, we'll proceed with the removal after that time.

You can compile your projects with ndn-cxx Change
https://gerrit.named-data.net/2966 and verify it works.

I have already prepared patches for these projects:

NFD https://gerrit.named-data.net/2967
ndn-tools https://gerrit.named-data.net/2968
ndns https://gerrit.named-data.net/2970
ChronoSync https://gerrit.named-data.net/2969
ChronoChat https://gerrit.named-data.net/2971

If you are a developer in one of these projects, please review the patch on
Gerrit. Thanks.

I have also confirmed these projects are unaffected: NLSR, repo-ng,
ndn-traffic-generator, ndn-group-encrypt, nTorrent

Yours, Junxiao
