I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20081116.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 support for compilation with the bcc32 C compiler from BDS was
    improved such that the chk_all.sd7 check program succeeds.
- The FAQ about the operating systems supported by Seed7, was
- A chapter describing how to replace pointers with interface types
    was added to the manual.
- The obsolete use of the operator >> and << for file input and
    output was removed from the seed7_05.s7i library.
- The general check program chk_all.sd7 was improved to check also
    for the successful compilation of the compiler.
- The compiler (comp.sd7) was improved to generate C programs which
    are acceptable for the bcc32 C compiler.
- The compiler was improved to check that a temporary tmp_*.c file is
    marked with a temp_marker.
- The documentation file src/read_me.txt was improved to explain the
    #define value CHECK_INT_DIV_BY_ZERO.
