Since Lua offers no standard set of libraries, many projects and teams have to build their own version of the Lua libraries and this can create binary incompatibilities among the resulting products.
Tecgraf/PUC-Rio and Kepler Project teams have a lot of shared products, so it made no sense to keep maintaining two (incompatible) sets of Lua libraries in parallel. While it would be nice to have a single standard for the whole Lua community, that is still not the reality. So both teams merged their requirements and now use a common set of files. Those files are called LuaBinaries and are available here for other Lua developers that want to use them.
Using a common set of libraries has some advantages for the developer:
Easier interoperability with other products based on LuaBinaries
Faster setup time for new Lua developers
If you need to recompile from sources and would like to ensure LuaBinaries compatibility, use the source package available at the LuaBinaries Download with no modifications. In fact the only change from the Lua.org package is the name of library and executable that use "luaXX" instead of "lua", where XX is the version
