Protocol Buffers is the name of the binary serialization format used by Google for much of their data communications. It is designed to be: small in size - efficient data storage (far smaller than xml) cheap to process - both at the client and server platform independent - portable between different programming architectures extensible - to add new data to old messages. protobuf-net is a .NET implementation of this, allowing you to serialize your .NET objects efficiently and easily. It is compatible with most of the .NET family, including .NET 2.0/3.0/3.5/4.0, .NET CF 2.0/3.5, Mono 2.x, Silverlight, etc.

* - fix: reader's position not resetting: eventually causes overflow on pooled instance; critical fix to 663
     * - add: Support for BCL immutable types (Microsoft.Bcl.Immutable)
     * - add: Remove some more allocations (IPredicate)
     * - add: ProtoReader recycling for heavy read throughput
                 - add: precompile uses alternative switch construct (android limitations)
     * - add: new key-signing options for precompile
                 - add: enum-passthru defaults
     * - fix: bug with length-prefix / naked enumerations
     * - update: protoc 2.5
                 - fix: various tweaks for Genderme
                 - fix: better support for "naked enumerables" (root enumerable objects)
