Dear LuaRT Community,
LuaRT 0.9.8 is now available, and can be downloaded at www.luart.org.
This release includes an optional version of the runtime library, located in the bin\std folder with better compatibility with the Lua standard library, providing io and os modules.
To use it, backup the default runtime LUA54.DLL, and copy the LUA54.DLL library from bin\std to the bin folder to replace it. This library offers better compatibility with Lua ecosystem (libraries and tools like mobdebug, LuaSocket...)
A major bug have been fixed, that causes random crashes when using ui module (especially when using Windows IME), thanks to Ruby for the help.
Please note that generational garbage collector is now the default mode with LuaRT
The documentation has been updated accordingly.
Please feel free to post any feedback or bug reports.
