The Debian packages use Lua since 1.10.2-2 without any problem.

Is there any reason not to make wireshark 1.11.x and beyond only use Lua
5.2?  Right now the automated builds are getting built with 5.1.

There's very little difference to end users (i.e., older scripts should
continue to work)... but for the C-code it's a lot more painful to have
continue to handle both Lua versions, and it takes longer to test, fix,
There's no real advantage to supporting both at this point, afaik.
was back when Lua 5.2 was new and buggy, but 5.2 has been out since


Is 5.2.3 a must have? Right now we have a 5.2.1 library for Windows (I'm
trying to build with it as we speak) but not a 5.2.3 one.
