Am maintenance release of RcppMsgPack got onto CRAN this afternoon. It contains a single
static_cast fix to address a warning which
g++-8.1 shows whereas older compilers remained silent—and CRAN asked us to address this.
MessagePack itself is an efficient binary serialization format. It lets you exchange data among multiple languages like JSON. But it is faster and smaller. Small integers are encoded into a single byte, and typical short strings require only one extra byte in addition to the strings themselves. RcppMsgPack brings both the C++ headers of MessagePack as well as clever code (in both R and C++) Travers wrote to access MsgPack-encoded objects directly from R.
Changes in version 0.2.2 (2018-05-06)
- Apply a
static_castfrom upstream to suppress a warning from
g++-8.1as requested by CRAN.
