Thanks to two patches by Murray Stokely, we have a nice new minor release 0.2.2 of RProtoBuf out on CRAN. RProtoBuf provides GNU R bindings for the Google Protobuf data encoding library used and released by Google.

The NEWS file entry follows below:

0.2.2   2011-01-11

   o    Applied two patches by Murray Stokely which 
         - correct a typo preventing some functions from being called, 
         - add bounds checking in call to google protobuf library, 
         - add a new name method 
         - add a tiny unit test for the above
         - add more graceful error handling
         - add support for import patterns other than .proto$, 
         - add simple reading file that does not exist (exception) test
         - add simple repeated field unit test

And courtesy of CRANberries, here is the diff to the previous release 0.2.1:

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.
