A snapshot of Lua 5.0 (work) is now available at

I'll post later a precise list of what is new.

No manual is available yet. We're working on it. Also, the examples in test/
have not been updated but they should run if you first load compat.lua.
A new feature in lua.c is that you can do this automatically by setting
the environment variable LUA_INIT to "@compat.lua".

Like the others work versions, none of the changes is definitive. This is
simply a work version that is being made available so that you can experiment
with it and send us your feedback.
