Dependency On Newtonsoft.Json

    Hi guys,
    I noticed the latest version (1.1.0 preview) has a dependency on JSON.NET.
    I have a third party plugin that I am currently using that depends on an older version of JSON.NET, and updating to the latest version of Remote Config causes it to fail to load.

    It looks like a possible way to resolve this in a Visual Studio is to use dependency redirects in the app config, but I can't seem to figure out how to do this in unity or if it is even possible?

    What plugin is causing the issue? Have you contacted them?

    I think I figured out the solution. Posting it here for anybody who has the same problem

    1) Add the line:

    Code (CSharp):
    1. -appconfig:app.config
    to the csc.rsp file

    2) Create a file called "app.config" in the root of your project (above assets folder)
    with this in it:

    Code (CSharp):
    1. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    2. <configuration>
    3.   <runtime>
    4.     <assemblyBinding xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1">
    5.       <dependentAssembly>
    6.         <assemblyIdentity name="Newtonsoft.Json" publicKeyToken="30ad4fe6b2a6aeed" culture="neutral" />
    7.         <bindingRedirect oldVersion="" newVersion="" />
    8.       </dependentAssembly>
    9.     </assemblyBinding>
    10.   </runtime>
    11. </configuration>
    This will redirect any plugin that depend on an older version of JSON.NET (0-12) to use the newer version included with Remote Config (com.unity.nuget.newtonsoft-json 2.0.0-preview)

    In my case, I was using Google APIs in my editor tools & Google.Apis.Core depends on JSON.Net v10.
