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

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


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 4.02nb1, Package name: p5-JSON-XS-4.02nb1, 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:
Update packages using a search.cpan.org HOMEPAGE to metacpan.org.

The former now redirects to the latter.

This covers the most simple cases where http://search.cpan.org/dist/name
can be changed to https://metacpan.org/release/name.

Reviewed by hand to hopefully make sure no unwanted changes sneak in.

Update to 4.02

Upstream changes:
4.02 Wed Mar  6 08:31:24 CET 2019
        - undo the fix from 4.01, it breaks more things than it fixes
          (another tetscase by Wesley Schwengle).
        - try a proper fix this time.

Update to 4.01

Upstream changes:
4.01 Sun Feb 24 05:03:30 CET 2019
        - fix some stack corruption caused mostly when calling methods
          in list context (tewstcase by Wesley Schwengle).

Update to 4.0

Upstream changes:
4.0  Fri Nov 16 00:06:54 CET 2018
        - 4.0 pre-release, do not use other than for testing.
        - SECURITY IMPLICATION: this release enables allow_nonref by default
          for compatibnility with RFC 7159 and newer. See "old" vs. \ 
"new"
          JSON under SECURITY CONSIDERATIONS.
        - reworked the "old" vs. "new" JSON section.
        - add ->boolean_values to provide the values to which booleans
          decode (requested by Aristotle Pagaltzis).
        - decode would wrongly accept ASCII NUL characters instead of
          reporting them as trailing garbage.
        - work around what smells like a perl bug w.r.t. exceptions
          thrown in callbacks.
        - incremental parser now more or less respects allow_nonref.
        - json_xs json-pretty now enables canonical mode.
        - add documentation section about I-JSON.
        - minor documentation fixes/updates.

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.
