This library implements a deserializer for an efficient, compact-output,
and feature-rich binary protocol called _Sereal_. Its sister module
Sereal::Encoder implements an encoder for this format. The two are released
separately to allow for independent and safer upgrading.
The Sereal protocol versions that are compatible with this decoder
implementation are currently protocol versions 1, 2, and 3. As it stands,
it will refuse to attempt to decode future versions of the protocol, but if
necessary there is likely going to be an option to decode the parts of the
input that are compatible with version 3 of the protocol. The protocol was
designed to allow for this.
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

3.015 Thu Sep  1 20:18:44 CEST 2016
* Fix builds under 5.25+
* Fix various buffer overun bugs found using AFL (thanks to dgryski)
* Fix issue in decode_from_file()

* Fix builds under 5.8.9
3.012 Dec  6 2015
* Yet another release related to broken META files.
ExtUtils::MakeMaker and CPAN::Meta need to be up to date
or the META files miss stuff.
3.011 Dec  6 2015
* No significant changes. Doc typo fixes, and build tweaks.
3.010 Dec  1 2015
* Build fixes.

3.007 Nov 26 2015
* Build fixes for boxes without any Sereal installed (it seems
to be common on certain types of smokers, and not on others).
* [ENCODER]: new sort orders added.
* Fix incremental parsing of utf8 strings. See
* Encoder fixes.

3.006 Nov 14 2015
* [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
