I am happy to announce Version 0.5 of PuREST JSON, a library for working 
with JSON data and communication with RESTful HTTP webservices, that use 
JSON data.

What is JSON?
JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) is a lightweight data-interchange 
format. It is easy for humans to read and write. It is easy for machines 
to parse and generate. It is based on a subset of the JavaScript 
Programming Language, Standard ECMA-262 3rd Edition - December 1999. 
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.

Why should I care about JSON and PuREST JSON?
A lot of services on the web are available through JSON webservices, 
e.g. you can use live data from Twitter via a JSON API and use it for 
generative art - an example using Bitcoin prices is included. A lot of 
NoSQL databases use JSON data and a RESTful interface for storing and 
retrieving data, e.g. MongoDB and CouchDB.

Examples, helpfiles and manual are included in the source and Debian
