I guess you haven't been following it all that long. The second digit
of Lua's version denotes major releases, potentially (and usually)
introducing backwards-incompatible changes.

As consolation, such releases are generally not very frequent. It
should be noted that this is a "work" version, and I think you'll find
that nothing is at all decided regarding what will be in the final

Embrace the change, play with the release, provide constructive feedback.
