A fresh minor release of RProtoBuf, now at version 0.2.1, has appeared earlier today on CRAN. RProtoBuf provides GNU R bindings for the Google Protobuf data encoding library used and released by Google.
This releases extends the recent 0.2.0 release of RProtoBuf with a patch for raw bytes serialization which Koert Kuipers kindly contributed. This helps RProtoBuf for RPC communication where raw bytes are often a preferred form.
As always, there is more information at the RProtoBuf page which has 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.
