Support nativ json datatype for mysql

Hi,

Mysql supports native json datatypes since version 5.7.8.

When will rails support this new feature?

Kind regards,

Marvin

With the Attribute API in Rails 4.2 is should be already quite easy to add a new type and parse/serialize JSON there.
You can try it in your app.

Support was added a month ago https://github.com/rails/rails/pull/21110
