Hi everyone,

I'm glad to announce LuaRocks 2.0.13. LuaRocks is a package management
system for Lua modules. (For more information, please visit )

This release contains minor bugfixes as well as some features which do
not break compatibility with the rockspec format. In particular, this
feature includes a number of Windows improvements, written mainly by
Thijs Schreijer.

The goal of this release was to improve the out-of-the-box experience
on Windows and to make using LuaRocks with both Lua 5.1 and 5.2 at the
same time easier on Unix.

What's new since 2.0.12:

* Support for Lua 5.2 is no longer marked as experimental
* Support for installing two instances of LuaRocks, for Lua 5.1 and
5.2, in parallel
* Improvements for the 'builtin' build mode on Windows
* rclauncher on Windows does not rely on a precompiled object anymore
* Improvements for the Windows installer, including optional registry
entries for context-menu operations
* Improvements in 'luarocks new_version` command for autogenerating
updated rockspecs
* 'luarocks remove' command accepts rock and rockspec filenames

As usual, see the GitHub logs for detailed history. And as always, all
kind of feedback is much appreciated.
