I wanted to know which version of the OData protocol the Microsoft ASP.NET Web API OData NuGet package is targeting.

I know it is currently only an Alpha but to know where it it is heading would help me to make some design decisions for our application.

Specifically I am interested in the JSON format specification.

There is a notable difference in the OData V1 JSON format and the OData V2/3 JSON format.

OData v3 and we will support the new JSON light format.
