Hello everyone,

We are happy to announce the first release of the
"Moonbridge Network Server for Lua Applications".

Moonbridge is a stand-alone TCP/IP (and HTTP) network server for
applications that are written in the Lua programming language. For
every connect, a cloned Lua machine is used to handle the request.
Pre-forking is configurable in which case libraries may be loaded and
initialized before forking.

While waiting for a request, each cloned Lua machine can already
perform preparatory work (e.g. opening database connections in advance)
to avoid unnecessary delays. It is either possible to reuse the cloned
Lua machines or to terminate their processes and always use freshly
cloned Lua machines for every request.

More information is available at the project page at:

Best regards
