    I recently read a bunch of non-sense related to this issue.
    I compiled today PHP 5.5.6 with JSON support, as is built in PHP.

    A clear (and funny) post is made by one of PHP developers.

    [root@astra scripts]# php -v

    Probably someone dumb and confused about how some Linux distros wanted to switch to a different internal JSON library for PHP because of licensing issues. I guess in that case the JSON library *was* dropped, but they forgot to mention that it was replaced with something with a friendlier license for them.
