Changes in RProtoBuf version 0.3.2 (2013-12-15)
Fixed a bug that erroneously prevented users from setting raw byte fields in protocol buffers under certain circumstances.
Give a user friendly error message when seting an extension to a message of the wrong type instead of causing a C++ check failure that terminates the Rsession.
Change object table lookup slightly to allow users to use the
<<-operator in code using RProtoBuf without hitting a
stop()error in the lookup routine.
enum_typemethod and improve show method for EnumValueDescriptors.
Improve documentation and tests for all of the above.
