luajson v1.0 Release Notes
User Visible Changes
This release marks the 1.0 release that has been in the works for quite some time.
One of the major release items is detailed documentation and a reasonably stable/
clean API. Some features have been eliminated since they were not effective or
Features removed:
* Lax number handling... before this release, numbers with ugly definition were
permitted, such as leading zeroes, multiple negative signs, ...
* String post-processing... this feature was unused and appears to serve no
useful purpose. Removing it made unifying encoding/decoding options simpler
* Adds global pre-processing to handle arbitrary conversion of values during
* String escape codes updated to match what the JSON spec uses for encoding
* Add optional \x00 character encoding to handle encoding single bytes
* Custom output stream functionality to create optimal output mechanisms
that can stream JSON output.
Plans for next release
Currently there is nothing in the works for the next release. The project
is very open to outside suggestions and patches for enhanced functionality...
so please contribute.
