I am happy to announce the release of stdlib release 12,
General Lua libraries.

This release removes io.basename and io.dirname, which are now available in
lposix, and the little-used functions addSuffix and changeSuffix which
dependend on them. io.pathConcat is renamed to io.catdir and io.pathSplit
to io.splitdir, making them behave the same as the corresponding Perl
functions. The dependency on lrexlib has been removed along with the rex
wrapper module. Some of the more esoteric and special-purpose modules
(mbox, xml, parser) are no longer loaded by 'require "std"'.

This leaves stdlib with no external dependencies, and a rather more
coherent set of basic modules.
