_Sereal_ is an efficient, compact-output, binary and feature-rich
serialization protocol. The Perl encoder is implemented as the
Sereal::Encoder module, the Perl decoder correspondingly as
Sereal::Decoder. They are distributed separately to allow for safe
upgrading without downtime. (Hint: Upgrade the decoder everywhere first,
then the encoder.)
This 'Sereal' module is a very thin wrapper around both 'Sereal::Encoder'
and 'Sereal::Decoder'. It depends on both and loads both. So if you have a
user of both encoder and decoder, it is enough to depend on a particular
version of 'Sereal' and you'll get the most recent released versions of
'Sereal::Encoder' and 'Sereal::Decoder' whose version is smaller than or
equal to the version of 'Sereal' you depend on.
The protocol specification and many other bits of documentation can be
found in the github repository. Right now, the specification is at, there is a
discussion of the design objectives in, and the output of
our benchmarks can be seen at

* [DECODER] fix segfaults from heavily corrupted data. Guards
against various pathological cases which could cause segfaults
fixed. Thanks to Damian Gryski and "fuzzing sereal with afl"
for finding these cases.
* [ENCODER] Various subtle fixes to how we choose whether to serialize
the string or numeric version of a value, in particular to
ensure that "00" always round trips as "00", and related issues.
Note this fix has correctness and performance consequences. In
some cases values that used to serialized as integers (arguably
incorrectly) will be serialized as strings instead, and some code
maybe be slower to serialize.
NOTE: Some issues related to this subject are not fixable without
a protocol change. In particular this change may affect the behavior
of code that uses binary logical operators on values serialized
with Perl.
Thanks to Zefram, Tom, and others for help with this issue.
* Fixups for cast warnings under -Wint-to-ptr builds by using
using PTR2INT and INT2PTR for casting our objects.
* Win32 fixes
* Build improvements
* Changes to how we generate constants
