It will take a while as

- 5.3 it's not yet official
- then 5.3 needs to become stable
- we need to test implications of the new number system
- tests have shows it's a slightly slower

Maybe there's nothing to gain from a move to 5.3, apart from keeping up
with general Lua. If we make the switch it will first be tested quite a
while in production before it leaves beta.


OK.

Did you think about Ctx be able to use more Lua versions?

Similar like --jit forces LuaJIT instead of Lua;
--lua52 would force Lua 5.2 instead Lua 5.3+ once Lua 5.3+ is adopted into 
Ctx core (and supposing Ctx won't use any Lua 5.3+ extras).

Best regards,

Lukas

unlikely ... i can think of more interesting things to do than spending 
the free time i've left to coding for multiple lua dialects, so if we 
move to 5.3 and i want to use its new features, 5.2 is no longer assumed 
and supported (one thing i can think of is bitwise operators)
