Re: Can we move to Lua 5.2.3 only?

BTW, to answer your question directly, no I don't think it's a big deal if you only run 5.2.1.  The bugs fixed in 5.2.2 
were pretty esoteric, and even more so those fixed in 5.2.3.

FWIW, I use Lua 5.2.1 on my Mac all the time (because MacPorts hasn't updated their Lua installer to 5.2.3 yet, and I 
use MacPorts).

The bugs are listed here:

5.2.3 was only released this past December, but 5.2.2 has been out since 2012.

What do you mean by "we have a 5.2.1 library for Windows but not a 5.2.3 one"? Do you mean from some pre-built binary 
repository somewhere?

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

Howdy,
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 to
continue to handle both Lua versions, and it takes longer to test, fix, etc.
There's no real advantage to supporting both at this point, afaik.  There
was back when Lua 5.2 was new and buggy, but 5.2 has been out since 2011.

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.
