Dear LuaRT Community,
It has been almost 2 years since LuaRT's first version was released. There are many bugs that have been fixed and many new features that have been added. LuaRT has now reached a certain level of maturity.
In addition, the codebase is now well organized, making it easy to transition to a 64-bit version.
A rapid prototyping REPL (QuickRT), a script-to-executable compiler (rtc), and, most recently, an integrated development environment (LuaRT Studio) have been developed.
With almost 300 downloads in less than 3 months, LuaRT's latest release, 0.9.9, was unexpectedly successful. Hopefully, this LuaRT's sudden interest will benefit Windows' integration of Lua.
The LuaRT codebase should now be made open source, which will make it even better. The upcoming release of LuaRT 1.0.0 marks a new chapter, and I hope that we will continue to work together in this spirit of mutual aid and community building.
My goal for this release is to make it as seamless as possible: new features (especially in object-oriented programming), a new website, a new all-in-one distribution (LuaRT + QuickRT + rtc + LuaRT Studio), completely reworked and updated documentation, and more !
Until then, I would like to thank you for all the comments, bug reports, and suggestions you have made so that LuaRT can become better. If you have any feedback regarding LuaRT, its use, etc., please let me know.
From there, stay tuned !
