RProtoBuf provides R bindings for the Google Protocol Buffers (“Protobuf”) data encoding and serialization library used and released by Google, and deployed as a language and operating-system agnostic protocol by numerous projects.
Some of the code in RProtoBuf 0.4.9 had this bug; some other entry points had neither (!!). With the ongoing drive to establish proper registration of entry points, a few more issues were coming up, all of which are now addressed. And we had some other unreleased minor cleanup, so this made for a somewhat longer (compared to the other updates this weekend) NEWS list:
Changes in RProtoBuf version 0.4.9 (2017-03-06)
A new file
init.cwas added with calls to
Symbol registration is enabled in
PACKAGE=arguments were added to the corresponding
Two (internal) C++ functions were renamed with suffix
_cppto disambiguate them from R functions with the same name
All of above were part of #26
Some editing corrections were made to the introductory vignette (David Kretch in #25)
CRANberries also provides a diff to the previous release. The RProtoBuf page has an older package vignette, a ‘quick’ overview vignette, a unit test summary vignette, and the pre-print for the JSS paper. Questions, comments etc should go to the GitHub issue tracker off the GitHub repo.
