RProtoBuf 0.2,0

September 11, 2010

(This article was first published on dirk.eddelbuettel, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

A brand new and shiny release of RProtoBuf,
now at version 0.2.0, arrived on
CRAN earlier today.
provides GNU R
bindings for the
Google Protobuf data encoding
library used and release by Google and others.

This is only the second release after
0.1-0 more than six months ago. Given that
Rcpp is such a key
ingedrient for RProtoBuf, and
that Rcpp underwent so
many exciting changes itself, Romain and I never got around to releasing new versions of RProtoBuf.
This version is now much closer to the actual C++ API and fairly feature
rich. We summarised a few of these new things in the
useR! 2010.

There is more information at the
page; there is a
draft package vignette,
a ‘quick’ overview vignette
and a
unit test summary vignette. Questions, comments etc should go to the
rprotobuf mailing list
off the RProtoBuf page at R-Forge.
