Summary of my current thoughts:
o table.pack looks nice but I think some extra functionality would be
great: truncate length of table to i-1 and append args to array
beginning at i. I imagine it would look like this: table.pack(t, n,
o A table.erase|clear has long been desired in Lua. Could this be
considered now? (It should reset both the array and hash portions of a
table so complicated hacks are no longer necessary. The newly exported
luaH_resize appears to be begging to be used for this :D)
o No documentation yet for lua_upvaluejoin, debug.upvalueid, debug.upvaluejoin.
o contents.html does not link to any of the new functions documented
o New panic/error-less lua_checkstack is great, thanks!
o lua_arith undocumented.
o luaL_findtable still undocumented (wasn't in documented 5.1 either).
I personally would like this function to be official :)
Thanks for the (late) Christmas present! :)
