A new release appeared today, short blog post below.


   RProtoBuf 0.2.6                                    

   Release 0.2.6 of RProtoBuf arrived on CRAN earlier 
   this morning. RProtoBuf provides GNU R bindings    
   for the Google Protobuf data encoding library used 
   and released by Google.                            
   This release was once more driven largely by       
   Murray whom we have now added among the list of    
   authors of the package too. The NEWS file entry    
   follows below:                                     
       Changes in version 0.2.6 (2012-10-04)          
       * Applied several more patches by Murray to    
            * correct '_' and '__' mismatches in      
              wrapper calls                           
            * update a few manual pages for style,    
              and add examples                        
            * fix a bug where NAs were silently       
              treated as TRUE for logical/bool types  
            * fix a bug that caused crashes when      
              adding vectors to optional fields       
            * fix bugs in readASCII that returned     
              empty protocol buffers when the file or 
              connection could not be opened          
            * distinguish between non-existant and    
              not-set fieldswith has() by returning   
              NULL in the former case.                
            * fix a bug that caused non-deterministic 
              behavior when setting a repeated        
              message field in a protobuf to a single 
            * add unit tests for all of the above.    
       * Added Murray to Authors: field in            
       * Removed old and unconvincing example on      
         RProtoBuf for storage and serialization in   
         an imagined HighFrequencyFinance context     
   CRANberries also provides a diff to the previous   
   release 0.2.5. More information is at the          
   RProtoBuf page which has a draft package vignette, 
   a 'quick' overview vignette and a unit test        
   summary vignette. Questions, comments etc should   
   go to the rprotobuf mailing list off the RProtoBuf 
   page at R-Forge.
