I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20080817.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 FAQ about static type checking was improved and an FAQ about
    development speed and type checking was added.
- A chapter about the type 'category' was added to the manual.
- The chapters about boolean, string, set and reference in the
    manual, were improved.
- The functions toUuencoded and fromUuencoded were added to the
    encoding.s7i library.
- The html entity 'ang' and several comments were added to the
    html_ent.s7i library.
- The error management of the chkint.sd7 program was improved.
- The 'configValue' function was improved to support values for
- The function growStri was improved to work correctly in out of
    memory situations.
- The makefiles makefile, mk_cygw.mak, mk_linux.mak, mk_mingw.mak,
    mk_msvc.mak, mk_msys.mak and mk_nmake.mak were improved to define
    TWOS_COMPLEMENT_INTTYPE when appropriate.
- The file setlib.c was improved to work correctly with bitsettype's
    of different sizes.
