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. :)

Hi Everybody,

I have the Lua 5.3 job done. Any pointers on how to contribute my code / create a pull request? Who should I be talking to?

Hi,
You can share it here : https://wiki.eclipse.org/LDT/User_Area/Available_Execution_Environments
Currently there is no way to provide a PR, you need to contribute a patch.
But I will try to take time to see if this is possible to move to github... this could help for contribution.

I've pushed my work to Github. It's in a branch called "lua53". Here: https://github.com/orbc/LDT/tree/lua53.

Would that help? You can clone from there.

I've noticed that there is a separate project for Metalua on Gerrit. Is it a viable project worthy of maintenance? The reason I'm asking is because I did modify some of Metalua files in the LDT source tree, so it would probably make sense first to apply my changes to the Metalua source tree and them pull them into the LDT.
