I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20080622.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 example program (cellauto.sd7), which simulates cellular
    automata, was added.
- Testcases for the @:= statement were added to the chkstr.sd7
- The compiler (comp.sd7) was improved such that the generated code
    raises MEMORY_ERROR when the 'malloc' function fails.
- Support for the actions SET_ICONV and SET_SCONV was added to the
    (hi) interpreter and the compiler.
- The compiler was improved to optionally generate code without range
    checks for the STR_ELEMCPY action.
- The handling of functions returning references to existing objects
    in the compiler was improved.
- Parameter names were added to the function prototypes of the header
    files bln_rtl.h, chr_rtl.h, cmd_rtl.h, flt_rtl.h and ut8_rtl.h.
- The compiletime flag RSHIFT_DOES_SIGN_EXTEND is now taken into
    account for the right shift in the macro 'bitset_pos' defined in
    the file set_rtl.h.
