I am pleased to announce that I have updated the Haskell language
version of the protocol buffers library and .proto compilation tool to
The new versions are on hackage in three pieces:
This version is now caught up with the official protobuf-2.3.0 release.
The highlights of the changes are (cribbing from Kenton's announcement):
> * Parsers for repeated numeric fields now always accept both packed and
> unpacked input. The [packed=true] option only affects serializers.
> Therefore, it is possible to switch a field to packed format without
> breaking backwards-compatibility -- as long as all parties are using
> protobuf 2.3.0 or above, at least.
> * inf, -inf, and nan can now be used as default values for float and double
have been added to 1.6.0.
I did not add support for plugin code generators or for writing directly
to a compressed zip or jar file. No service related code is ever
generated so the "option *_generic_services" changes were ignored.
