I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20080302.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).

- A new chapter about compile errors was added to faq and to the
- The functions skipComment, getComment, skipLineComment,
    getLineComment and getNumber were added to the scanstri.s7i
- A new example program (chk_all.sd7), which runs interpreted and
    compiled checks, was added.
- Support for the primitive action CMD_CHDIR was added to the
    compiler (comp.sd7).
- Several memory leaks, which happen in the handling of MEMORY_ERROR
    exceptions, were removed.
- All primitive actions which start with CLS_ were renamed such that
    the name starts with ITF_ .
- The files clslib.c and clslib.h were replaced by itflib.c and
    itflib.h .
- The objectcategory CLASSOBJECT was replaced with the objectcategory
- The functions popen and cmd_sh were improved to be consistent on
    all platforms. Now they use always '/' as path delimiter and '\\ '
    to describe spaces in the command path.
- The gets function for external_files was improved to work correctly
    when pipe files are read as a whole.
- A workaround was added for a wrong behaviour of the ftell()
    function under MinGW for pipes.
- The -q option of the 'hi' interpreter was improved to suppress all
    interpreter messages.
- Several changes to remove C compiler warnings were done.
