In terms of release notes, the official announcement contains (https://marc.info/?l=lua-l&m=160700074629288&w=2)

The major change that prompted a new release was the return to a
stackless implementation.

Also, there is one bug fixed, that will still appear in the bugs
page.  (See [1].) There were also several small improvements (e.g., the
variable _PROMPT can use __tostring to produce its value; the hash of a
long string uses all characters).

Nothing too special for this one, and honestly I'm surprised I was even able to find this information. One must do something while waiting for rustc to compile though ;-)

Lua and Mercurial seem to operate on the assumption that only minor releases need release notes, but that point releases don't need them.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
