Changes in Jansson

Version 1.2.1

Released 2010-04-03

  • Bug fixes:
    • Fix reference counting on true, false and null
    • Estimate real number underflows in decoder with 0.0 instead of issuing an error
  • Portability:
    • Make int32_t available on all systems
    • Support compilers that don’t have the inline keyword
    • Require Autoconf 2.60 (for int32_t)
  • Tests:
    • Print test names correctly when VERBOSE=1
    • test/suites/api: Fail when a test fails
    • Enhance tests for iterators
    • Enhance tests for decoding texts that contain null bytes
  • Documentation:
    • Don’t remove changes.rst in make clean
    • Add a chapter on RFC conformance

Version 1.2

Released 2010-01-21

  • New functions:
  • New encoding flags:
    • JSON_SORT_KEYS: Sort objects by key
    • JSON_ENSURE_ASCII: Escape all non-ASCII Unicode characters
    • JSON_COMPACT: Use a compact representation with all unneeded whitespace stripped
  • Bug fixes:
    • Revise and unify whitespace usage in encoder: Add spaces between array and object items, never append newline to output.
    • Remove const qualifier from the json_t parameter in json_string_set(), json_integer_set() and json_real_set().
    • Use int32_t internally for representing Unicode code points (int is not enough on all platforms)
  • Other changes:
    • Convert CHANGES (this file) to reStructured text and add it to HTML documentation
    • The test system has been refactored. Python is no longer required to run the tests.
    • Documentation can now be built by invoking make html
    • Support for pkg-config

Version 1.1.3

Released 2009-12-18

  • Encode reals correctly, so that first encoding and then decoding a real always produces the same value
  • Don’t export private symbols in

Version 1.1.2

Released 2009-11-08

  • Fix a bug where an error message was not produced if the input file could not be opened in json_load_file()
  • Fix an assertion failure in decoder caused by a minus sign without a digit after it
  • Remove an unneeded include of stdint.h in jansson.h

  • Enhance documentation
    • Add getting started guide and tutorial
    • Fix some typos
    • General clarifications and cleanup
