Hi all

What are the plans for 5.2 support? Since LuaJIT is now supporting 5.2 when can we plan to have 5.2 support with this module?

Thanks in advance, your work is appreciated!!

ngx_lua has already been working with LuaJIT 2.0 compiled with its Lua 5.2 compatibility mode.

It should be made clear that LuaJIT 2.0 only supports some new Lua 5.2 features on the Lua language level while it is still strictly following the Lua 5.1 ABI.

Making ngx_lua compatible with the Lua 5.2 ABI is a lot of work because it means forking the code base in a lot of places. But anyway it has been on our TODO list :)

This is a duplicate ticket to #343. Because there's no plan to support the full incompatible Lua 5.2 language and ABI or even beyond (like 5.3), I'm closing this.
