We have a fairly complete test suite and request an EARL report for those tests. All the details can be found here:

Well, we planned to do a CR of four weeks starting on August 22. The problem is that we forgot about the mandatory 7 day waiting period and the requirement for a transition call which means that we will probably be delayed by four weeks.

The thing that makes JSON-LD different from many other W3C standards is that it was mainly driven by implementations and that we had a test suite since the very beginning. So we would fulfill the criteria to exit CR again on day one. Most groups start to think of tests and implementations between LC and CR.
