As many of you guys already know, Microsoft did a huge ASP.NET source
release at codeplex[*1]. Since this includes System.Json, I ported this
to our class libs to replace existing stuff.
There are only a few concerns.
- There was some weird test that expects *invalid* JSON syntax.
I'm totally inclined to kill it, but since this says as if
.NET allowed such broken JSON (this actually fails with this
Microsoft implementation), I'd wait for inputs regarding this one
for a few days. Looks like it was from Miguel [*2]
- I haven't verified builds other than net_2_0, net_4_0 and net_4_5.
I have excluded DLR stuff with NET_4_0 so this should build on
other profiles though.
- The new dll is binary incompatible. I believe that in general
Microsoft implementation makes more sense though (lots of explicit
operators instead of implicit, Save() only on JsonValue, no
The new sources are in mcs/class/System.Json-new so the existing
System.Jsoncan be easily replaced with it.
