I have a followup workaround suggestion for this bug.  JSON data can be cast as a string type on extraction:

select id, CAST(jsoncol as CHAR)  from marctable;

While I trust that the bug will be fixed, there is obviously some lag in users upgrading their PHP versions.  So I wonder if it is preferable to implement the workaround or conditional checking for a specific PHP version >= fix version?

(Best for you to determine obviously!)
