VASmalltalk – MSKJSONWrapper and Linux

With the version 0.26 I published today to vastgoodies support is available for Linux.

Some changes had to be made to the external interface specifications (different function names) and the user must now decide, if he wants to work in a pure UTF8 environment (which makes sense under Linux) or in a code page environment (where the system tries to convert each string from UTF8 to current code page and vice versa).
