Added support for setting and getting 64-bit integer types as character strings of decimal integers to work around R's lack of native 64-bit integer types.
Added better error handling, documentation, and tests to the extensions support (getExtension and setExtension).
Add support to P for returning extension descriptors.
Improved error messages to include field names when invalid fields are specified to protocol buffer messages with new, update, etc.
Improved configure to detect and pass -std=c++0x if it is available to enable long long 64-bit integer support in Rcpp.
Improved configure in the case when pkg-config is not available or does not know about the google protocol buffer includes.
Replaced newly deprecated Rcpp macros with a simplified macro functionality to avoid warnings on the latest development version of Rcpp.
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.
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 Message.
add unit tests for all of the above.
Added Murray to Authors: field in DESCRIPTION
Removed old and unconvincing example on RProtoBuf for storage and serialization in an imagined HighFrequencyFinance context
Applied patches by Murray to
correctly deal with nested Protocol Buffer definitions, and also add new unit test for this
test a a protocol buffer for missing required fields before serializing it, also add a unit test
add a small stylistic fix and examples to the 'add.Rd' manual page
Moved inst/doc/ to vignettes/ per newer CRAN Policy
Applied several patches kindly supplied by Murray Stokely to
properly work with repeated strings
correct C++ function naming in a few instances
add an example of ascii export/import of messages
Suppport g++-4.7 and stricter #include file checking by adding unistd
Made small improvements to the startup code
Protect UINT64 and INT64 with '#ifdef RCPP_HAS_LONG_LONG' which itself is valid with either g++ <= 4.4, or newer versions if the -std=c++0x is used
The documentation Makefile now uses the $R_HOME environment variable
The documentation Makefile no longer calls clean in the all target
Applied two patches by Murray Stokely which
correct a typo preventing some functions from being called,
add bounds checking in call to google protobuf library,
add a new name method
add a tiny unit test for the above
add more graceful error handling
add support for import patterns other than .proto$,
add simple reading file that does not exist (exception) test
add simple repeated field unit test
Support for raw bytes added thanks to a patch by Koert Kuipers
Second release with numerous internal changes made possible by changes in Rcpp
Initial CRAN release
