simplejson 1.7


simplejson is a simple, fast, complete, correct and extensible JSON (RFC 4627) encoder/decoder for Python 2.3+. It is pure Python code with no dependencies.

simplejson 1.7 is a minor update that improves encoding performance with an optional C extension to speed up str/unicode encoding (by 10-150x or so), which yields an overall speed boost of 2x+ (JSON is string-heavy). Additionally 1.7 adds support for encoding unicode code points outside the BMP to UTF-16 surrogate code pairs (specified by the Strings section of RFC 4627).
