Loading JSON into MariaDB or even MySQL - mysqljsonimport 2.0 is available

It was a long time since I updated mysqljsonimport or mysqljsonexport and I had a few things I wanted to do with them. This release is significant enough for me to bump it up to 2.0, and the same is in the works for mysqljsonexport. The one big thing that is now implemented is reasonably advanced support for MariaDB Dynamic Columns, and it is actually pretty flexible, allowing you to load a nested JSON object into a MariaDB Dynamic Column. But don't worry, it will still link and run with MySQL if that is what you want to do (but then you will not have the dynamic column features, for obvious reasons),

Download from Sourceforge as usual (yes, I know I am oldfashioned and that I should have put it on github). Also as usual is the documentation in pdf format that is also downloadable separately.
