I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20071110.tgz

In the Seed7 programming language new statements and operators
can be declared easily. Types are first class objects and therefore
templates/generics need no special syntax. Object orientation is
used when it brings advantages and not in places when other
solutions are more obvious.

Seed7 is covered by the GPL (and LGPL for the Seed7 runtime library).

- The functions getSymbol, getWhiteSpace, getSymbolOrComment and
    getSimpleSymbol of the scanner.s7i library were created or
- A new example program (chkscan.sd7) to check the new scanner
    functions was added.
- A bug in the planets.sd7 example program was fixed.
- The manual was corrected to explain that the types 'char' and
    'string' support UNICODE.
- The actions cmd_ls and scr_write were improved to use utf-8
    characters when available.
- The filOpen function was improved to use _wfopen under windows.
- The timezone handling to get the Greenwich Mean Time was improved.
- A string in shisen.sd7 was enlarged to avoid a RANGE_ERROR
    exception when accessing it.

Greetings Thomas Mertes
