A quick follow-up on yesterday’s post regarding LuaJIT memory failures on Windows:
We will be making a change to how plugins interact with LuaJIT and X-Plane for 10.20 rc2. If you have an add-on that uses a LuaJIT-based plugin (SASL, Gizmo, or FlyLua) you must get new 64-bit binaries for your add-on! If you do not get new binaries, it will only be a matter of time before your 64-bit add-on stops working.
This change is unavoidable – it either has to happen now (in RC, when only beta testers have X-Plane 10.20) or later (when we’ve shipped the product and everyone is happily flying). I think now is better — I would rather not have to do this at all, but the memory problems are not going away.
I am already in direct contact with the plugin developers who use LuaJIT to work with them on the needed changes.
With this in mind, I am hoping to cut RC2 later this week.
