What’s new? Well, lots of things since it is our very first release.
But since the merge of the

The plan is to provide support for reading of
TTrees containing user classes.
This implies being able to interact with the
ROOT streamers that are stored in the

On the non-ROOT front, future releases could perhaps integrate the
rio storage with
hbook/ntup.Ntuple so one could get a complete, pure-Go stack with data persistency and an analysis workstation (
pawgo and its web-based equivalent.)
