I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20090607.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 chkint.sd7 program was improved with additional checks for the
    binomial coefficient (for values of k greater than n and for
    negative values of n) and 'bitLength'.
- The chkstr.sd7 program was improved with additional checks for
    string subranges ([ A .. B ] and [ A len B ]).
- An error concerning array subranges was fixed in the function
    arr_range (arrlib.c).
- Several changes in the interpreter and the runtime library were
    done to reduce the number of warnings generated by the C compiler.
- Occurrences of 'float' in the compiler (comp.sd7) were replaced
    with 'floattype'.
- Functions to compute the most and least significant bit of unsigned
    integers with a width of 8, 16, 32 and 64 bits were added to the
    file int_rtl.c.
- The new functions ***MostSignificantBit and ***LeastSignificantBit
    were used in the following functions: intBitLength, intLog2,
    bigBitLength, bigDiv, bigLog2, bigLowestSetBit, bigMDiv, bigMod,
    bigRand, bigRem, setCmp, setMax, setMin and setRand.
