Fusion: 1st birthday, 1K+ stars on GitHub, System.Text.Json support in v1.4

Ok, I wrote almost everything in the title, but let me expand on that a bit :)

  1. Fusion is 1 year old now — it was released on July 17, 2020, and interestingly, it managed to acquire more than 1K stars on GitHub during its first year.
  2. Today I published its v1.4.3 build, which adds System.Text.Json serializer support. Earlier Fusion was supporting only Json.NET, which isn’t bad by itself, but… FusionWebServerBuilder was configuring ASP.NET Core to use Json.NET instead of System.Text.Json, and that was a deal breaker for any app that relies on System.Text.Json. The developers of such apps had to choose between Fusion and System.Text.Json support — and as you might guess, this problem is gone now.

P.S. If you’ve never heard about the mind-bending Fusion/DREAM abstraction, here are some links:
