This is the 10th beta release of LuaJIT 2.0.0.

The main feature of this release is the new port to MIPS CPUs.
Many bugs have been fixed, especially for the ARM and PPC ports
and the FFI library.

What is LuaJIT?
---------------

LuaJIT is a Just-In-Time (JIT) Compiler for Lua. It's upwards
compatible with standard Lua 5.1 and can significantly boost the
performance of your Lua programs.

LuaJIT is open source software, released under the MIT license.
LuaJIT builds out-of-the-box on most x86 or x64 operating systems
(Linux, Windows, OSX etc.) and can be cross-compiled for embedded
systems based on ARM (Android, iOS), PPC, PPC/e500 and MIPS CPUs.

This is a BETA TEST release -- the current status and the list of
known issues are shown here: http://luajit.org/status.html
Please report any problems you may find with this release. Thank you!

MIPS Port
---------

The MIPS port of LUAJIT is now complete. It has been sponsored by
MIPS Technologies, Inc. The port requires a MIPS32 R1 CPU with
hardware FPU using the O32 hard-fp ABI. It supports both
little-endian and big-endian builds.

Sponsorships
------------

A corporate sponsor, who wishes to remain anonymous at this time,
has sponsored the development of allocation sinking and store
sinking optimizations. This will eliminate many temporary
allocations in the fast paths, even where classic escape analysis
would fail. Work on this feature has already started.

Roadmap
-------

An updated roadmap will be published on the LuaJIT mailing list
in the next days.
