ion 0.2.0

PHP extension for Amazon ION serialization format

Amazon Ion is a richly-typed, self-describing, hierarchical data serialization format offering interchangeable binary and text representations.

The text format (a superset of JSON) is easy to read and author, supporting rapid prototyping. The binary representation is efficient to store, transmit, and skip-scan parse.
