- json-c 0.13
  + Deprecated and removed features:
    * Internal use of bits.h has been eliminated.
    * lh_abort() is deprecated
  + Behavior changes:
    * Tighten the number parsing algorithm to raise errors instead
      of truncating the results.  For example 12.3.4 or 2015-01-15,
      which now return null.
    * Use size_t for array length and size. Platforms where
      sizeof(size_t) != sizeof(int) may not be backwards compatible
    * Check for failue when allocating memory, returning NULL and
    * Change json_object_object_add() return type from void to int,
      and will return -1 on failures, instead of exiting. (Note:
      this is not an ABI change)
  + New features:
    * Aiming to follow RFC 7159 now.
    * Support for JSON pointer, RFC 6901 (see json_pointer.h)
    * Add a couple of additional option to json_object_to_json_string_ext:
    * json_object_object_add_ex() - better perf when certain
      constraints are known to be true
    * Serialization format of doubles now configurable
    * New functions
      - json_object_equal() - utility function for comparing
      - json_object_deep_copy() - a way to copy entire object
      - json_object_set_<type>() - modify the value of
        existing json_object's without the need to recreate them.
	Also add a json_object_int_inc function to adjust an int's'
      - json_util_get_last_err() - retrieve the string describing
        the cause of errors, instead of printing to stderr.
      - perllike hash function for strings
    * json_global_set_string_hash()
    * json_c_visit() - a way to iterate over a tree of json-c
  + Notable bug fixes and other improvements:
    * Make reference increment and decrement atomic to allow
      passing json objects between threads.
    * Fix json_object_object_foreach to avoid uninitialized
      variable warnings.
    * Improve performance by removing unneeded data items from
      hashtable code and reducing duplicate hash computation.
    * Performance: store small strings inside json_object
    * Performance: of json_object_to_json_string by removing
      variadic printf
    * Fix parsing of "-Infinity", and avoid needlessly copying the
      input when doing so.
    * Fix stack buffer overflow in json_object_double_to_json_string_format()
    * Fix various potential null ptr deref and int32 overflows
    * Fix a long-standing bug in array_list_put_idx() where it
      would attempt to free previously free'd entries due to not
      checking the current array length.
    * use uselocale() instead of setlocale() in json_tokener to
      behave better in threaded environments.
    * Fix out of bounds read when handling unicode surrogate pairs.
    * Ensure doubles that happen to be a whole number are emitted
      with ".0"
    * Visual Studio: use a snprintf/vsnprintf wrapper that ensures
      the string is terminated.
    * Fix double to int cast overflow in json_object_get_int64.
    * Clamp double to int32 when narrowing in json_object_get_int.
    * Use strtoll() to parse ints - instead of sscanf
    * usual code linting
 + Build changes:
    * Add Appveyor and Travis build support
    * Support for MacOS and Windows through CMake
    * Silent build by default
    * Link against libm when needed
    * Add support for building with AddressSanitizer
    * Add support for building with Clang
    * Add a --enable-threading configure option, and only use the
      (slower) __sync_add_and_fetch()/__sync_sub_and_fetch()
      function when it is specified.
- cleanup with spec-cleaner
- remove fix-set-but-not-used.patch
  + fixed:
- remove gcc7-fix.patch
  + fixed in 014924ba899f659917bb64392bbff7d3c803afc2

Thu Mar 23 09:29:23 UTC 2017 -

- Added gcc7-fix.patch

Mon Jul 18 17:39:03 UTC 2016 -

- Update to upstream release 0.12.1
- Removed upstream fixed json-c-0.12-unused_variable_size.patch
- Added fix-set-but-not-used.patch

Sat Sep 20 12:07:25 UTC 2014 -

- json-c 0.12
  Fixes for security issues contained in this release have been
  previously patched into this package, but listed for completeness:
  * Address security issues:
    * CVE-2013-6371: hash collision denial of service
    * CVE-2013-6370: buffer overflow if size_t is larger than int
- Further changes:
  * Avoid potential overflow in json_object_get_double
  * Eliminate the mc_abort() function and MC_ABORT macro.
  * Make the json_tokener_errors array local.  It has been deprecated for
     a while, and json_tokener_error_desc() should be used instead.
  * change the floating point output format to %.17g so values with 
     more than 6 digits show up in the output.
  * Remove the old name compatibility support.  The library is
      only created as now and headers are only installed 
      into the ${prefix}/json-c directory.
  * When supported by the linker, add the -Bsymbolic-functions flag.
  * Make strict mode more strict:
    * number must not start with 0
    * no single-quote strings
    * no comments
    * trailing char not allowed
    * only allow lowercase literals
  * Added a json_object_new_double_s() convenience function to allow
    an exact string representation of a double to be specified when
    creating the object and use it in json_tokener_parse_ex() so
    a re-serialized object more exactly matches the input.
  * Add support NaN and Infinity
- packaging changes:
  * json-c-hash-dos-and-overflow-random-seed-4e.patch is upstream
  * Move from json-c-lfs.patch which removed warning errors and
    autoconf call to json-c-0.12-unused_variable_size.patch from 
    upstream which fixes the warning
  * except for SLE 11 where autoreconf call is required
  * add licence file to main package

Mon Apr  7 12:22:58 UTC 2014 -

  * Add a json_object_to_json_string_ext() function to allow output 
	to be formatted in a more human readable form.
  * Add json_object_object_get_ex(), a NULL-safe get object method, 
	to be able to distinguish between a key not present and the value 
	being NULL.
  * Add an alternative iterator implementation, see json_object_iterator.h
  * Make json_object_iter public to enable external use of the
     json_object_object_foreachC macro.
  * Add a printbuf_memset() function to provide an effecient way to set and
     append things like whitespace indentation.
  * Adjust json_object_is_type and json_object_get_type so they return
      json_type_null for NULL objects and handle NULL passed to
  * Rename boolean type to json_bool.
  * Fix various compile issues for Visual Studio and MinGW.
  * Allow json_tokener_parse_ex() to be re-used to parse multiple object.
     Also, fix some parsing issues with capitalized hexadecimal numbers and
     number in E notation.
  * Add json_tokener_get_error() and json_tokener_error_desc() to better
     encapsulate the process of retrieving errors while parsing.
  * Various improvements to the documentation of many functions.
  * Add new json_object_array_sort() function.
  * Fix a bug in json_object_get_int(), which would incorrectly return 0
    when called on a string type object.
