[ANN] Ravi (a Lua dialect) 1.0 Beta-6 Release with JIT compilation support

Dibyendu Majumdar
Ravi (http://ravilang.org) is a dialect of Lua with a JIT backend and
limited optional static typing. I am pleased to announce that the 1.0
Beta-6 release of Ravi is now available.

The main highlights of this release are:

* Bug fixes
* Improvements to type checking contributed by XmiliaH
* MIR JIT backend updated to latest upstream version

Other highlights:

* Ravi is now being tested on X86-64 and ARM64 architectures
* There is an experimental new compiler for Ravi that is available as
a preview only. More details of this new compiler can be found at:
https://github.com/dibyendumajumdar/ravi-compiler.

For general information regarding Ravi please visit:

A distribution of Ravi with a small set of libraries is available at:

All feedback welcome!

Thanks and Regards
Dibyendu
