Hi All,

I am releasing a snapshot of LuaSocket 1.5 for Lua-5.0-beta. The files
can be found at

This release is work in progress. It has been tested on WinXP, Mac OS X,
SunOS and Linux. The most important change is a major rewrite of the C
code that attempts to make the library extensible. Also, all functions
were moved to the 'socket' namespace. A few changes are expected for the
final version, mostly in order to make the API more uniform.

In this version, all Lua code has been built into the binary. For that,
you will need a working versions of luac and bin2c, both available with
your Lua distribution.  Check makefile for details.

Have fun,
Diego Nehab.
