A new bug-fix release release 0.4.1 of
RProtoBuf,
is now on CRAN.
RProtoBuf
provides GNU R
bindings for the
Google Protocol Buffers (“Protobuf”)
data encoding
library used and released by Google, and deployed as a language and
operating-system agnostic protocol by numerous projects.

Murray once more shouldered most of the
actual burden and fixed a number of issues detailed below.

Changes in RProtoBuf version 0.4.1 (2014-03-25)

  • Document and add a test for the deprecated group functionality.

  • Add a CITATION file pointing to our arXiv.org preprint.

  • Fix a bug in the show method for EnumDescriptor types.

  • Import all top-level enums from imported .proto files.

  • Removed duplicate enum value type from the unit tests that caused problems with the most recent libprotobuf-2.5. (without option allow_alias).

CRANberries also provides a
diff to the previous release.
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.
