libfastjson 0.99.9 released

Libfastjson is a new fork of the json-c library, which is optimized for liblognorm processing.

This release provides several changes to libfastjson. Most importantly are the added API objects for fjson_object_get_uint() and fjson_object_array_del_idx(). Also included is a bugfix for a dangling pointer that causes a segfault.

For more details, please refer to the changelog below.

0.99.9 2021-01-26

  • add API fjson_object_get_uint()
    Thanks to Janmejay Singh for contributing the patch.
  • add API fjson_object_array_del_idx()
    Thanks to Noriko Hosoi for contributing the patch.
  • bugfix for dangling pointer that causes segfault
    The other functions assume that the memory is either set to NULL or a valid
    json object. The array_list_del_idx function only moves the elements, but
    does not set the pointer to null, which causes the same pointer to remain
    in the list (outside of arr->length). Then, when array_list_put_idx is
    called, the array_list_expand_internal leaps out, meaning that it has not
    set the indices outside of the requested length to 0. array_list_put_idx
    finds the pointer, tries to free it and a double free will be incurred,
    because the actual element is still in the list.
    Thanks to Michael van der Werve for contributing the patch.
