Commit bd1c5c9f4dcf38458099db8a0bf4659a07ef055d changed all the code

API name (which was still Yajl).


Are you aware that Jansson can't parse all JSON generated by qemu, and that the developers of Jansson did not seem sympathetic to patches that would make it possible? Libvirt recently reverted their use of Jansson because of its inability to deal with unsigned 64-bit numbers (and sadly, RFC7159 does not define bounds for what forms valid JSON numbers, but merely leaves it up to implementations to decide for themselves).
