Congratulations with the new alpha release!
I was able to compile it on my (co-)linux environment (Debian? I
honestly don't know) using the quickstart
1. I had to apt-get install liblua5.1-dev instead of liblua51-dev
2. I had to invoke sudo ldconfig afterwards (might be wise to include
this in the quickstart).
Everything seems to work fine, althoug a bit slow (due to the fact that
I' running Linux within Windows).
Are you planning to release a Windows executable of the alpha version soon?
