hi everyone;

JSON-GLib 0.7.2 is now available for download at:


MD5 checksums:

  69af9d01e348f98a88da6b59bdbec51b  json-glib-0.7.2.tar.bz2
  39f9ccbbb67daf2188b6f5d71b19150e  json-glib-0.7.2.tar.gz

this is the first developers snapshot of the JSON-GLib library leading
to the stable 0.8 cycle.

JSON-GLib is a library providing serialization and deserialization
support for the JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) format described by
RFC 4627. JSON is: 

  a lightweight data-interchange format. It is easy for humans to read
  and write. It is easy for machines to parse and generate. It is based
  on a subset of the JavaScript Programming Language, Standard ECMA-262
  3rd Edition - December 1999. JSON is a text format that is completely
  language independent but uses conventions that are familiar to
  programmers of the C-family of languages, including C, C++, C#, Java,
  JavaScript, Perl, Python, and many others. These properties make JSON
  an ideal data-interchange language. -- From Introducing JSON 

Many high-level languages already provide native modules for parsing,
generating and manipulating JSON data streams. JSON-GLib is a C library
based on GLib and released under the terms of the GNU Lesser General
Public License version 2.1. It provides a parser and a generator GObject
classes and various wrappers for the complex data types employed by
JSON, such as arrays and objects.

JSON-GLib uses GLib native data types and the generic value container
GValue for ease of development. It also provides integration with the
GObject classes for direct serialization into, and deserialization from,
JSON data streams.

JSON-GLib currently requires:

 * GLib 2.16.0, or higher

Bugs should be reported to http://bugzilla.openedhand.com in the
json-glib product.

JSON-GLib is available in GNOME Git:
