A new release 0.2.4 of RProtoBuf is now on CRAN. RProtoBuf provides GNU R bindings for the Google Protobuf data encoding library used and released by Google.

This release once again contains a number of patches kindly contributed by Murray Stokely, as well as an added header file needed to build with the g++ 4.7 version which has become the build standard on CRAN.

The NEWS file entry follows below:

0.2.4   2012-05-15

    o   Applied several patches kindly supplied by Murray Stokely to
         - properly work with repeated strings 
         - correct C++ function naming in a few instances
         - add an example of ascii export/import of messages

    o   Suppport g++-4.7 and stricter #include file checking by adding unistd

    o   Made small improvements to the startup code

CRANberries also provides a diff to the previous release 0.2.3. More information is 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. Updated to show NEWS rather than ChangeLog
