While full featured and fully compliant with the JSON specification
(RFC4627), JSON.simple aims to be as simple and efficient as possible.
It supports encoding, decoding and escaping JSON data and streams, and
features a stoppable SAX-like interface to process JSON input.
It has been run through profiling tools to ensure high performance
Targeted at JDK 6, JSON.simple is also compatible with JDK 1.2 and
doesn't depend on any other Java library.

json-simple (1.1.1-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Switch to CDBS + maven-debian-helper
* New patch junit-scope-test.patch:
Set scope 'test' for the junit maven dependency, so that it doesn't
propagate into the installed pom file.
* debian/control: bump Standards-Version to 3.9.5 (no changes)

json-simple (1.1.1-1) unstable; urgency=low
[ Gilles Filippini ]
* New upstream release (closes: #723048):
+ Supports OSGi
+ Accepts a java.util.Map parameter in constructor of JSONObject
+ Maven support
* Fetch the source tarball directly from upstream SVN (no upstream tarball
to download for this release)
* No more need to exclude jar files from the source tree
* Drop debian/pom.xml no needed anymore
* debian/rules, debian/libjson-simple-java.jlibs,
debian/libjson-simple-java.poms: fix paths
* debian/copyright, debian/libjson-simple-doc.doc-base: add Dave Hughes
to authors
* debian/control:
+ Maintainer: Debian Java Maintainers
+ Fix VCS fields to use
+ Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.4 (no changes needed)
* Add a temporary convenience symbolic link to workaround the jar filename
change from json_simple.jar to json-simple.jar. This should prevent
FTBFSs for packages build depending on libjson-simple-java until they
are fixed.
[ Andrew Ross ]
* debian/rules: fix clean target to match the new source tree
* debian/libjson-simple-java.poms: add --usj-name option to allow linking
to jar in /u/s/j
