> Is there anything that lists the differences between the 5.1 alpha and
> beta?

No... A tentative list follows:

- string.gsub accepts tables as the replacement (and related changes 
  already anounced)
- lua_gc has a new option to allow more precision for gc count
- new function lua_setallocf (to change the allocator function)
- new function table.maxn
- new function debug.getregistry
- getlocal/setlocal operate also on C locals and temporaries
- some changes in luaconf (give up the attempt to automatically
  discover what is available in each machine)
- several small issues that surfaced on the list (e.g., changes to avoid
  warnings in some compilers)

(The changes in luaconf need feedback...)
