I suggest you ...

Load the specified version of Json.NET rather than always loading 6.0.0.0

Whenever I add Json.NET as a nuget project, version 6.0.0.0 is attached rather than the selected version. For instance, in this fiddle: https://dotnetfiddle.net/6LyfRc the latest release version is selected, version 7.0.1, but "Console.WriteLine("Json.NET version: " + typeof(JToken).Assembly.FullName);" actually shows 6.0.0.0 was loaded.

    This is done. Seems to work fine when I ran your fiddle and changed Newtonsoft Json to newest (12.something)

    Or at lease have an option to load the most recent version, which is already up to 10.0.3. Version 6.0.8 was released on 2015-01-11 - over two years ago at this point.
