If lua-5.3 has not been released before S2_6 branching, I'm for taking the beta version to use in post-2.6 TRUNK (I have already been constantly using it in my own TRUNK testing environment). In S2_6 I would not do that just in case there's an unexpected delay with lua-5.3 release or some other problem that would prevent us from updating from the lua beta before our own beta.

Patch that takes lua-5.3 to use. Not to be committed any time soon as lua-5.3 is still in alpha, but suitable for testing.

lua-5.3-alpha was recently released. "alpha" does not denote active development version, as such development snapshots were known as "work" -versions. While lua-5.3 is still certainly some way away, so is freeciv-2.6. At the moment I assume that we can, and should, use lua-5.3 in freeciv-2.6 (freeciv-3.0 is so far away that posponing switch from lua-5.2 to lua-5.3 all the way there is something I'd like to avoid) This ticket is for following the development.
