I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20091206.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 chapters explaining operating system access, primitive actions
    and exceptions in the manual were improved.
- The codepages 708, 862, 864 and 874 were added to the charsets.s7i
- The functions 'remove' and 'rename' were renamed to 'removeFile'
    and 'moveFile' in various files.
- The functionality of 'removeFile' was changed such that removing a
    nonexisting file raises an exception.
- The functionality of 'moveFile' was changed such that moving to an
    existing file raises an exception.
- The compiler was improved to use the function floatLiteral to write
    occurrences of float literals to the generated C program.
- The functions actStr, act_str, filLit, fltDgts, refCatStr, refStr,
    typStr and typ_str were changed to use cstri_to_stri() instead of
- The compiler (comp.sd7) and the interpreter (hi) were improved to
    support the actions BST_LNG and BST_VALUE.
- The toutf8.sd7 example program was improved to support more
