Ravi ( is a dialect of Lua with multiple JIT
backends and limited optional static typing. I am pleased to announce
that the 1.0 Beta-4 release of Ravi is now available.

The main highlights of this release are:

* Generational GC back-ported from Lua 5.4
* Random number generation back-ported from Lua 5.4
* Various fixes to the implementation of 'defer' statement which is
Ravi's alternative to Lua 5.4 to-be-closed variables
* Support for LLVM 10.0 has been added
* Various updates to MIR JIT backend
