libfastjson 0.99.3 released

We have released libfastjson 0.99.3.

This is a new fork of the json-c library, which is optimized for liblognorm processing.

The changes are mostly for cleanup purposes. Also some bug have been fixed, like a potential segfault issue, “make distcheck” not working and more.


0.99.3 2016-07-11
– new dependency: autoconf-archive
– exit() is no longer called in unexpected situations
The previous code called exit on some occasions and did not
give the caller a chance to do any cleanup or handling on
it’s own. This has completely been removed. Note that it was
very unlikely that this problem affected a caller, as exit()
was only called under very rare circumstances (e.g. OOM).
– fjson_version now returns configure VERSION
This avoid inconsistency.
– removal of Windows and Android bits
Thanks to Michael Biebl for the patch.
– fixes of the build system
Thanks to Michael Biebl for the patch.
– dropped support for Windows and Android as we do not target
these platforms
– “make distcheck” now works
– fix invalid Unicode representation for some non US-ASCII
characters when printed as string. Note that this could
potentially also lead to a segfault
