Hi Chris,

Is there any particular reason why Wireshark for Windows still ships with Lua 5.2.4?  An upgrade to 5.3+ would be a welcome one.


Can our current code run fine with Lua 5.3/5.4? Based on previous discussions in -dev I thought it was not the case but maybe I'm wrong (I'm not a Lua user myself and this is based on exchanges from a few years ago).
If it is safe, I will happily update the package.

And would the existing scripts be compatible with Lua 5.3 or 5.4?
There is also a issue with a lib using by Wireshark (luabit if remember)
