Most Lua old-timers would consider the absence of a roadmap for 5.2 as
a good omen for the long-term viability of projects using Lua ;)

More seriously, I am afraid I missed something. what do you mean by
"official support"?  If you mean bug corrections and code maintenance,
one of the main ideas behind Lua is that you do not need us to give
you this assurance. Lua is simple enough to be maintained in-house, if
necessary (even for small "houses").

(That said, we do plan to keep playing with Lua for several years.)
