Introduced in v5.1.14

The following substitutions are made:

Line feed (0x0a)\nAlways
Carriage return (0x0d)\rAlways
Characters from 0x00 to 0x1f, except listed above\x## where ## is two hex digitsAlways
Characters from 0x80 to 0xffff\u#### where #### is four hex digitsIf rawunicode suffix is not present (default)
Characters from 0x80 to 0xffffIntroduced in v5.1.23 UnchangedIf rawunicode suffix is present

Introduced in v5.1.23 If the suffix rawunicode is present, Unicode characters above 0x80 (such as ß, ä, ñ or 🎄) will be passed through unchanged. Without the suffix, they will be substituted with \u codes, which was the default behavior before 5.1.23. Characters outside the Basic Multilingual Plane, such as 🎄 and other emojis, will be encoded as a UTF-16 surrogate pair, i.e. with two \u sequences.

Mind the differences compared to jsonstringify in encoding of single quotes and control characters (0x00 to 0x1f).
