lang/lua54 - Update to 5.4.2

Authored by on Dec 12 2020, 6:38 PM.



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).

Test Plan

Tested lightly on FreeBSD 12.1 Stable. Working on getting an Arm board for testing on armv7.

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.
