JSON-GLib is a library providing serialization and deserialization
support for the JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) format described by
RFC 4627.

JSON-GLib uses GLib native data types and the generic value container
GValue for ease of development. It also provides integration with the
GObject classes for direct serialization into, and deserialization from,
JSON data streams.

JSON-GLib depends on:

• GLib ≥ 2.26

and, when building, it additionally depends on:

• GTK-Doc ≥ 1.13
• GObject-Introspection ≥ 0.9.5

release of JSON-GLib.
- Installing the contents of this release will overwrite the files
from the installation of the previous releases of JSON-GLib.
