I plan to release an official release soon,
but to truly gain effieciency we need features
that will be available only with Lua 4.1.

For those who missed my original message:


there is a alpha version available at

I am still working on its performance, and will probably change
the code (not the interface) in the next days.
Also, the docs are not up-to-date.

The main changes are:
- Lua 4.0 compatible (tolua is now reentrant)
- new support for 'bool' type (mapped to Lua  as 1 or nil)
- new support for extracting .pkg instruction from real header file
- fixed bugs reported in this list.
- no support for overloading relational operators: <=, >=, > (it
supports < only)
- the option -a is no longer support (we need the lua state to initalize

feedbacks, suggestions and bug reports are very wellcome.
