I am using Python Protobuffers library as exchange format between game
client (C++ Windows application) and game server (Python socket server
based on Twisted framework).
After upgrade from 2.0.1 to 2.3.0 we got 4x-6x performance boost
(python 2.5.2, Ubuntu 8.04) - it's great!
Do you know about Petar's timeline for the new version with more power
for Python code?
