I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20100718.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 first steps towards support of variable functions and closures
in the
    compiler ("comp.sd7") were done.
- The generation of code for 'for' loops and the 'div' operator in the
    was improved.
- The compiler function 'getTemporaryToResultExpr' was improved to
    code without casts from 'floattype' to 'generictype'.
- The function 'rand_32' in "int_rtl.c" was renamed to 'uint_rand' and
    to work better for 64-bit integers.
- A bug that could occur when loading a saved game was fixed in the
    program "castle.sd7".
- Tests for conversions from integer to float were added to the
    example program.
