RFC 7159, "The JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) Data Interchange Format", March 2014

Note: This RFC has been obsoleted by RFC 8259

Source of RFC: json (app)

Errata ID: 4388
Status: Held for Document Update
Type: Editorial

Section 1.2 says:

   This document updates [RFC4627], which describes JSON and registers
   the media type "application/json".

It should say:

   This document replaces [RFC4627], which previously described JSON and
   registered the media type "application/json".


The link at https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7159 says it obsoletes RFC 4627. I believe this is the intent and result of RFC 7159, and that RFC 4627 need not be consulted except for historical reasons going forward.
