libfastjson 0.99.8 released

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

This release provides several fixes to libfastjson. Most notably is the bugfix for proper handling of constant key names. For more details, please refer to the changelog below.


0.99.8 2017-12-18
– make build under gcc7 with strict settings (warning==error)
– bugfix: constant key names not properly handled
if fjson_object_object_add_ex() is used with option
FJSON_OBJECT_KEY_IS_CONSTANT, fjson_object_object_del() will still
try to delete the key name. Depending on use, this can lead to
double-free, use-after-free or no problem.

closes https://github.com/rsyslog/libfastjson/issues/148
– fix potentially invalid return value of fjson_object_iter_begin
this could lead to callers doing improper opreations and thus
could lead to a segfault in callers
