./converters/p5-JSON-XS, JSON serialising/deserialising, done correctly and fast

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 3.04, Package name: p5-JSON-XS-3.04, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

This module converts Perl data structures to JSON and vice versa.
Its primary goal is to be correct and its secondary goal is to be
fast. To reach the latter goal it was written in C.

As this is the n-th-something JSON module on CPAN, what was the
reason to write yet another JSON module? While it seems there are
many JSON modules, none of them correctly handle all corner cases,
and in most cases their maintainers are unresponsive, gone missing,
or not listening to bug reports for other reasons.

Log message:
Updated p5-JSON-XS to 3.04.

3.04 Thu Aug 17 04:30:47 CEST 2017
	- change exponential realloc algorithm on encoding and string decoding to be
          really exponential (this helps slow/debugging allocators such as libumem)
          (reported by Matthew Horsfall).
        - string encoding would needlessly overallocate output space
          (testcase by Matthew Horsfall).
        - be very paranoid about extending buffer lengths and croak if buffers \ 
get too large,
          which might (or might not) improve security.
	- add cbor-packed type to json_xs.
        - switch from YAML to YAML::XS in json_xs, as YAML is way too buggy and \ 
outdated.

	- fix a bug introduced by a perl bug workaround that would cause
          incremental parsing to fail with a sv_chop panic.
	- json_xs: toformat failure error message fixed.
        - json_xs: allow cyclic data structures in CBOR.

Update p5-JSON-XS to 3.02.

	- allow_nonref now affects booleans (\1, $Types::Serialiser::Boolean)
          as well (reported by Alex Efros).
	- allow literal tabs in strings in relaxed mode (patch by
          lubo.rintel@gooddata.com).
	- support "cbor" format in json_xs tool.
	- support (and fix) calling encode and decode in list context
          (reported by Вадим Власов).
        - work around a bug in older perls crashing when presented
          with shared hash keys (Reini Urban).
        - use stability canary.
