- LuaRocks has been "stuck" using Lua 5.2 (the default version on FreeBSD. grrr.). The new LuaRocks update takes advantage of a separate patch to streamline installations against all versions of Lua, though the implementation details are still fluid.
Once again, my unceasing thanks to Andrew Gierth for his sage advice and lua.mk patch. Also a big thank you to Hisham for fixing a bug related to FreeBSD unzip(1).
