Protocol buffers

Finally the serial­ization proto­col that we use at Google has been open-sourced. The proto­col buffer format specifies and IDL to define the bi­nary serial­ization format, a text re­presen­tation and tools to gene­rate stubs for both Python and C++.
Protocol buffers are used in­stead of XML files, both for stor­age and net­work trans­mission. The focus of this format is fast en­coding and de­coding and com­pact data represen­tation.
