We are proud to announce the next release of Lua for Windows (LfW). Lua is not updated to Lua v5.1.4 and uses the LuaBinaries Lua executable, which allows Lua for Windows to not modify the LUA_PATH or LUA_CPATH environment variables. This is a release candidate because of the update to Lua version 5.1.4 so please report any bugs. Read the changelog for more information. Enjoy.


Lua for Windows is a 'batteries included environment' for the Lua scripting language on Windows.

Lua for Windows combines Lua binaries, Lua libraries with a Lua-capable editor in a single install package for the Microsoft Windows operating system. Lua for Windows contains everything you need to write, run and debug Lua scripts on Windows. A wide variety of libraries and examples are included that are ready to use with Microsoft Windows. Lua for Windows runs on Windows 2000 and newer versions of Windows. Lua and its associated libraries are also available for other operating systems, so most scripts will be automatically cross-platform.
