Murray added a lot of new features
which merited the increase in the minor number. The NEWS file entry follows below:
Changes in RProtoBuf version 0.3 (2013-07-13)
Added support for Protocol Buffer extensions through the new
getExtension and setExtension methods for Message objects, and added
top-level extensions to the descriptor pool.
Added more user-friendly
show()methods for Messages,
Descriptors, and other RProtoBuf objects. A common source of
confusion on the mailing lists is to confuse Messages and
Descriptors. The new
show()methods succinctly display more
information about e.g. the number of set fields in a message to
make it a little clearer to users what type of object they are
Added has method for EnumDescriptor objects to test existance
of a named constant in an enumeration, and fix a bug in the length
method for these objects.
Added a number method for EnumValueDescriptor objects to
return the number of a named enumeration constant directly.
Improved documentation and unit tests.
CRANberries also provides a
diff to the previous release 0.2.6.
More information is at the
page which has a
draft package vignette,
a ‘quick’ overview vignette
unit test summary vignette.
Questions, comments etc should go to the
rprotobuf mailing list
off the RProtoBuf page at R-Forge.
