Python bindings for protocol buffers

Protocol buffers are a flexible, efficient, automated mechanism for serializing structured data - similar to XML, but smaller, faster, and simpler. You define how you want your data to be structured once, then you can use special generated source code to easily write and read your structured data to and from a variety of data streams and using a variety of languages. You can even update your data structure without breaking deployed programs that are compiled against the "old" format.

Google uses Protocol Buffers for almost all of its internal RPC protocols and file formats.

This package contains the Python bindings for the protocol buffers. You will need the protoc tool (in the protobuf-compiler package) to compile your definition to Python classes, and then the modules in this package will allow you to use those classes in your programs.

Package version:2.3.0-4


protobuf (2.3.0-4) unstable; urgency=low

  * Thanks to Peter Palfrader for finding the two bugs below:
  * Disable setuptools auto-download in case of wrong dependencies, and
    fix the current dependency version (Closes: #593269)
  * Fix the python cleanup rule, by always running the individual steps
    (Closes: #593268)

2009-01-08 version 2.3.0:

  * 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.
  * The generic RPC service code
