A new release 0.4.16 of RProtoBuf is now on CRAN. RProtoBuf provides R with bindings for the Google Protocol Buffers (“ProtoBuf”) data encoding and serialization library used and released by Google, and deployed very widely in numerous projects as a language and operating-system agnostic protocol.
This release contains a PR contributed by Siddhartha Bagaria which adds JSON support for messages, which had been an open wishlist item. I also appeased a
clang deprecation warning that had come up on one of the CRAN test machines.
Changes in RProtoBuf version 0.4.16 (2020-03-19)
CRANberries provides the usual diff to the previous release. The RProtoBuf page has copies of the (older) package vignette, the ‘quick’ overview vignette, and the pre-print of our JSS paper. Questions, comments etc should go to the GitHub issue tracker off the GitHub repo.
