I'm pleased to announce the arrival of protocol buffers to Lua! The project lives at http://github.com/indygreg/lua-protobuf . Documentation can be found on the wiki there.
The plugin generates C++ code that interfaces with both the C++ code generated by protoc and the "official" Lua C API. So, support is limited to Lua implementations that conform to that API (official distribution on lua.org, LuaJIT, possibly others). There are a number of features still absent and some known bugs and issues (see the wiki). But, it is generally usable and has many of the features you'd expect, so releasing I am. In the days ahead, I hope to spend time on a test suite as well as exposing more of the C++ API to Lua. Comments, feedback, and suggestions (especially on how to deal with the lua_Number conversion problem) are very welcome.
