FlatSharp v3.3.0 Release Notes

Release Date: 2020-08-20 // about 2 years ago
  • ๐Ÿ”– Version 3.3.0 of FlatSharp introduces a new feature: String Deduplication, also called Shared Strings. This feature (off by default), enables FlatSharp to only write one instance of a string that occurs many times within your buffer. For buffers with many repeated strings, this can save quite a bit of space in your serialized buffers. Usually, it will slow down serialization and parsing slightly, which is why it's left off by default. For more information, please take a look at the shared strings sample!

    ๐Ÿ— The FlatSharp compiler has been enhanced to be more friendly, courtesy of @eltone. .fbs.cs files have been moved to the obj directory where they belong, so they won't clutter your solutions any longer. Furthermore, some Unix build issues have been resolved (#54), a first-build bug has been addressed (#45, #55), and gRPC hosting has been extended to support ASP.NET core (#53). Thanks, Anthony!
