So, when I scrolling trough the Roblox Devforum. I find a "LuaJIT" remastered version called LuaU, when i visit their website; luau-lang.org. I see that LuaU has more pros than LuaJIT. It also support like variable type like
local MyVar : string = 'This is my Variable'
if strict mode are enabled. They're saying that LuaU are more fast than LuaJIT.

What opinion you guys are thinking?

I'm one of LOVE development team and this question is asked a lot in our Discord server.

And the short answer is: No, LuaU doesn't have the performance improvement and FFI that LuaJIT has.

I only like LuaJIT tho, like many program that use Lua also use LuaJIT. Like Godot Lua, Love2D, and others that use LuaJIT.
