I am new to FreeRtos and i have managed to create several tasks and do some task handling,. Then i started to get an lwIP example running with freertos. During my tentetive steps with freeRtos i created tasks wth xTaskCreate() and this worked well for me, also this is the way documented in the freeRTOSReferenceManual. But in the lwIP example, the tasks are created by using sys_thread_new.
Can somebody explain the differences between the two functions? Are there advantages/disadvantages using the one or another?
