> I've made a few performance improvements to the Ruby Avro decoder. In my tests (decoding
a complex record with many fields and nested records), I saw a 40% speedup on MRI 1.8.7 and
a 20% speedup on MRI 1.9.3. The improved code also makes about half as many object allocations
as before.
> Main changes are:
> * Using symbols instead of strings for the various schema types (there was actually a
FIXME in the code for this, now fixed)
> * Added a few memoizations to avoid unnecessarily recomputing values
> I've tried to keep the API unchanged — {{Avro::Schema#type}} still returns a string,
as users may be relying on the type ({{Avro::Schema#type_sym}} has the symbolized version).
So I don't think this patch introduces any compatibility problems (as long as apps aren't
relying on internals of the Avro library).
