Reviews for this release

After looking at several frameworks, I went with Json.NET. I found that the API seems obvious when doing simple things (this is not easy...this is nice design) yet flexible enough to do complex things. Also, the project is actively maintained...bugs are fixed quickly. Very impressive. Thanks.
