I'm curious about this last part, do you have specific changes in mind?

I'm asking because the GC is currently our main pain point with Lua in a long-running application. Tweaking the default parameters helps somewhat in previous versions, and we've not yet tried 5.4 in production (maybe after .1 ;) ).

I'm excited to try the new generational mode but would be keen to know of any open issues (such as reported here) or any planned improvements.
