Lua5.3 has been producted more than two years, and I'd like to know when to support it, or never?

There's a lengthy discussion here listing pros and cons

I don't quite remeber the final verdict but I think something did not compile on one of our platforms with LUA 5.3

There has been a longer thread at the developer mailing list some time ago to support Lua 5.3.

As I've understood it: no currently active plans. Devs: Correct me when I'm wrong.
