Hallo Neil,

while using SciTE4AutoIt, we've seen, that there is a problem with using 'require *.dll'. See here the Bugtracker #3692

Likely happened when SciTE 4.0.0 updated to Lua 5.3.

It appears similar to bug #2058 on Linux https://sourceforge.net/p/scintilla/bugs/2058/

Definitely.

LuaL_register was deprecated in 5.2 [1] and, following usual PUC Lua
practice, removed in the next version after it was deprecated (i.e. it
was removed in 5.3).

BTW, there were other API changes in 5.3, too [2].

I would like to raise the issue again. Even with SciTE 5.0 there is still no possibility to load dll files with require. Is there a change planned here or is there a workaround?

   I am not planning to work on this area. There are just too many other issues that appear higher priority to me.
