    Hi All,


    Sorry if you get this twice, it seems to have gotten lost on its way
    through python-announce.

    I'm pleased to announce the first release of the "extprot" python
    module. Extprot implements a compact, efficient, extensible and
    language-neutral object serialisation protocol.

    License: MIT
    Downloads: http://pypi.python.org/pypi/extprot/
    Source code: http://github.com/rfk/extprot/tree/master


    You can think of extprot as something akin to Google's protocol buffers,
    with a few extra bytes of serialisation overhead and a Python binding
    that doesn't have nearly as many rough edges. For example:

    * It's a stand-alone python module, packaged and distributed in
    the standard fashion.
    * It's friendly to dynamic package management tools like pip.
    * It works exclusively with standard Python objects. Declared a
    list field? It's a native list object.
    * You don't need to compile your protocol definitions.


    More on the extprot format itself is here:

    More on my motivations for this package here, if you're interested:

    Enjoy!
