Lua is the interpreted language behind the scripting feature in FreeSpace 2 Open SCP.
The Lua team have released 5.1.4 patch 2
, which is likely to be the final release prior to a major update to Lua 5.2 later this year sometime.
This is a bugfix release, which fixes a list of 8 known bugs
. While I am unaware of any causing crashes in FS2 mediavps or mods, some have performance impacts. Could all those scripters and mod teams which use scripting please test with the below builds or patches, as time allows.
This will NOT
be going into 3.6.12, unless we are able to identify an actual bug that is being experienced for our users or mod teams. It will be going into the release after
3.6.12.PatchTo trunk revision 6263
