Reviews for this release

I've just used it for my Google Maps API for .NET library. It's the best way to deal with JSON objects.

Exactly what one needs to simplify business and presentation logic processing between browser and server. What you need is what you get! A++.

This is a great piece of code. I used it to deserialize JSON objects to .NET objects and it was very easy. The converter functionality allows you to use interfaces to create pluggable .NET objects when the JSON will change slightly from time to time. Very useful.
