Today, I’m thrilled to welcome Json.NET to the .NET Foundation!
Json.NET is a popular high-performance JSON framework for .NET. It’s very well known to .NET developers – with over 164 million NuGet downloads, it’s by far the most popular community NuGet package and a fundamental part of the .NET open source ecosystem.
Supporting .NET open source projects like Json.NET is a core part of the .NET Foundation’s mission. As part of bringing the Json.NET project onboard, we’ve been able to help support James and team with the Json.NET 12 release. A key example is getting the project set up with the .NET Foundation’s code signing service and providing a code signing certificate.
You can read more about the Json.NET 12 release on the project’s release announcement post.
