debugging scripts with embedded for loops.
LuaEdit 2010 3.0.9 Released
Posted on 03.29.2012 by Jean-François Goulet
In this release of LuaEdit 2010, we brought major changes in our licensing. While the client-side (the IDE itself) will remain
licensed under GPL, the server-side (the actual debugger) will be licensed under LGPL to allow for redistribution of commercial products with the debugger.
Also, LuaEdit 2010 is now connected to a MySQL database to allow checking for updates and logging data in crash reports
to target bugs faster and more efficiently.
Finally, in the next release, we should have a fixed version of our rdbg*.lib static libraries in regards to crashes associated with memory mis-alignment
due to differences in the size of lua_State struct between LuaEdit's version and native Lua's version.
LuaEdit 2010 3.0.8 Released
Posted on 01.31.2012 by Jean-François Goulet
This release of LuaEdit 2010 mainly target bug fixes. If you had a bug in one of our previous releases,
chances are it is fixed in 3.0.8. If not, please let us know using our bug tracker system.

Today we announce that LuaEdit will be switching over

LuaEdit 2010 pre-alpha released!
Posted on 09.06.2009 by Jean-François Goulet
After many hours of hard work, LuaEdit 2010 has finally reached a point
in its development where it is stable enough to be released to the public.
This version of LuaEdit 2010 is certainly not final, since many
features are not yet available. For a brief list of these features, you may consult the project task list
This version features both local and remote debugging, solution/project management,
breakpoints, bookmarks, locals and output streaming. We hope you will enjoy what you see in this
early release of LuaEdit 2010.
We have many plans for future versions of LuaEdit 2010
and unlike many other Lua IDEs, LuaEdit strives to remain a free
software. Your contribution to the project would be greatly appreciated. By providing us feedback,
suggestions and bug reports, you play a very important role in the software's development.
