Summary

Hello Andrew, Mathieu, SunPoet,

As per the Lua team, this is an update that reverts Lua back to a stackless implementation. And as always, I am in the debt of Andrew, Mat and all those on the FreeBSD team that make this possible.

From the mailing list announcement:

//The major change that prompted a new release was the return to a
stackless implementation.

Also, there is one bug fixed, that will still appear in the bugs
page. (See [1].) There were also several small improvements (e.g., the
variable _PROMPT can use __tostring to produce its value; the hash of a
long string uses all characters).

You could have just put this one on bugzilla with maintainer-approval set on the patch, for a routine update putting it up here seems overkill.
