Subject: Yandex Testing Tool supports JSON-LD

Hi all,
I'm happy to say that Yandex has added JSON-LD support to its markup
validator. You're welcome to check it
here: http://webmaster.yandex.com/microtest.xml
Our main goal is to provide webmasters with simple and fast tool for
checking markup on the webpages. We've already supported all the popular
syntaxes such as microdata, rdfa-lite and microformats. JSON-LD becomes more
and more popular and is used in different products
(e.g., Yandex.Islands, GMail Actions, etc). Together with
all schema.org partners we understand our responsibility to help webmasters
with learning new language.
Since our first goal is simplicity we're not so strict in "context"
requirements (unlike great instrument
here: http://json-ld.org/playground/index.html). And we're still looking for
better approach for expanding terms: right now we don't expand them
explicitly in the output.
I'd be happy to hear your feedback and wishes.
P.S. More about Yandex testing tool
here: http://help.yandex.com/webmaster/yandex-indexing/validator.xml 
P.P.S. Pls, take into account that in order to check JSON-LD you need to put
it in <script> tag (since this is how it should be embedded into html).
	<script type="application/ld+json">{
	  "@type" : "CommunicateAction",
	  "instrument" : {
	    "@type" : "EmailMessage"

	  "handler" : {
	    "@type" : "WebHandler",
	    "url" : "http://www.example.com/send_email"
