Hi all and to the guys at Stonetrip,
I do hope to grab Shiva 2.0 soon.

Downloaded and tried the free web edition but got a tad disappointed by the Lua stripping.
I developed more than a couple of games with Lua and found it extremely powerful and easy in its "complete" form.
I do hope they will include all the standard libraries and the full language in Shiva 2.0.
After that, it will definitely be my platform of choice. :)

Happy development to everybody.

I guess that the biggest problem is that full lua doesnt play nicely when converted to c++, which is used to create the actual platform code.

@DoctorPepper
Yup I can see that can be an issue. Although I believe you can still have the option to Jit compile it... no c++ source conversion of course.
Actually for v. 2.0 they confirmed full Lua 5.1 support...which is great if they also support native code conversion.

@CovertStudios
Indeed, Shiva is attractive for the price point and its multiplatform support. And Lua of course. :)
Apparently there will be shaders support as well in the next version, which makes it even more interesting.
I just hope 2.0 will be out soon enough!
