A new release 0.4.4 of RProtoBuf is now on CRAN , and corresponds to the source archive for the Journal of Statistical Software paper about RProtoBuf as JSS vol71 issue 02 . The paper is also included as a pre-print in the updated package.

RProtoBuf provides 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.

This release brings small cleanups as well as build-system updates for the updated R 3.3.0 infrastructure based on g++ 4.9.*.

Changes in RProtoBuf version 0.4.4 (2016-07-10)

  • New vignette based on our brand-new JSS publication (v71 i02)

  • Some documentation enhancements were made, as well as other minor cleanups to file modes and operations

  • Unit-test vignette no longer writes to /tmp per CRAN request

  • The new Windows toolchain (based on g++ 4.9.*) is supported

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 .
