/!\ Outdated discussion. Lua was originally just a plugin for Wireshark, but became integrated as of v0.99.4.

Implementation Notes

No Registration, just Handoff

Lua it's been added to wireshark as a plugin, its registration function doesn't do anything, it isn't until handoff that the given script is compiled and executed. The reasons for this are:

to plugin or not to plugin?

While I believe it's a good thing in general that Lua is an optional module for wireshark I see few problems with this.
