  Description     : high-performance JSON framework for .NET

Json.NET is a high-performance JSON framework for .NET. It has the following
- Flexible JSON serializer for converting between .NET objects and JSON
- LINQ to JSON for manually reading and writing JSON
- High performance, faster than .NET's build-in JSON serializers
- Write indented, easy to read JSON
- Convert JSON to and from XML

The JSON serializer is a good choice when the JSN being read or written maps
closely to a .NET class.

LINQ to JSON is good for situations in which there is no class to serialize or
deserialize to, or the JSON is radically different from the class structure and
manual manipulation is required.
