I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20100801.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 was improved to contain three main sections.
- Instructions to verify the correctness of the interpreter were
    added to the FAQ and to the file "src/read_me.txt".
- Instructions how to use the Seed7 interpreter were added to the
- An explanation how static type checking works, when types are
    first-class objects, was added to the FAQ.
- The FAQ answers explaining the compilation of the Seed7 interpreter
    and how to compile Seed7 programs, were improved.
- References to the manual were added to several FAQ answers.
- The chapters explaining string literals, character literals,
    exceptions and stack traces in the manual were improved.
- Tests for the 'str' function, where the base of the number system
    is provided as parameter, were added to "chkint.sd7".
- The compiler (comp.sd7) was improved to generate better code for
    interface (dynamic) functions. Now a runtime exception is raised
    when no adequate implementation function is found.
- A definition of 'ACTION_ERROR' was added to "common.h" and
- The interpreters stack traces with function call notation, were
