High! LDT haven't got any updates for too long. Will lua 5.3 be supported?

This is not planned.
There is not so much contributors/contribution on the LDT and Metalua project. Committers are not involved anymore. I'm the last one and I just try to do bug fixes and integration in eclipse release train.

Is there much more to Lua 5.3.x support beyond writing an execution environment spec? I might be able to put some time into that, but if it's a lot more than just doing that, it's probably beyond my current spare time.

I'd probably be willing to give up some features to get partial support. For example, what I really want it autocompletions for the Lua 5.3.x API. I could live without debugging support.

I'm not aware of Lua 5.3.x changes, as I didn't code in Lua for a while.
I don't know if the grammar changes ? but if it does, there is a bit more than just providing ExecutionEnvironment. It's more about metalua...

As I said before, I'm alone on this project now, so new contributors/committers are welcome !
Providing a Lua 5.3 execution environnement could be a good first step. :)
