Source code moved to github

Greetings,

It's been a while since updates have been posted to the library. In order to inject new life to it I've decided to move the source code to gihub. The new repo can be found at

https://github.com/aalmiray/Json-lib

It should be easier now to submit patches and bug fixes. Clone away!
The project will keep using sf.net for all other facilities (docs, news, mailing lists, issues, website).

Cheers,
Andres

JSON is a text format that is completely language independent but uses conventions that are familiar to programmers of the C-family of languages, including C, C++, C#, Java, JavaScript, Perl, Python, and many others.These properties make JSON an ideal data-interchange language.... read more
