I'm happy to announce LuaRocks 2.0.8. LuaRocks is a deployment and
management system for Lua modules. (For more information, visit )

Here's another preview release of LuaRocks 2.0.8, which is mostly a
bugfix release.

This is a release candidate: if no problems are reported, these packages will be
renamed into the final versions.

This is mostly a bugfix release. What's new since

* Fix in CMake build backend
* Fix handling error condition of --pack-binary-rock
* Fixes for Windows .bat installer
* Improved arch detection when packing binary rocks
* Workaround LuaPosix 5.1.15 problem with chmod()
* Proper error messages when config files are invalid
* Avoid checking permissions when it's not necessary
* Fix behavior of 'builtin' rocks which install init.lua scripts
* git+file:// pseudoprotocol for local Git repos
* New binaries from GnuWin32 shipped in Win32 zip
* Nicer-looking help

(As usual, see the GitHub logs for detailed history)

Thanks to everyone who contributed, especially for the feedback given
at the luarocks-developers mailing list.
