Module Name:    pkgsrc
Committed By:   ryoon
Date:           Sun Apr 20 00:09:04 UTC 2014

        pkgsrc/textproc/json-c: Makefile PLIST distinfo

Log Message:
Update to 0.12

* Security update for CVE-2013-6370 and CVE-2013-6371
* Update API version


  * Address security issues:
    * CVE-2013-6371: hash collision denial of service
    * CVE-2013-6370: buffer overflow if size_t is larger than int

  * 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.

  * Various changes to fix the build on MSVC.

  * 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
