I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20110102.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 function convDosPath was added to the "seed7_05.s7i" library.
    It converts a path with backslashes and drive letters to the
    standard path representation. E.g.: "C:\seed7" is converted to
    "/c/seed7". When a path is already in the standard path
    representation it is left unchanged.
- Functions with path parameters or path result were improved to
    accept and return file paths with the standard path representation.
    The standard path representation uses a slash as path separator.
    Under Windows a standard path like "/c" is mapped to the drive
    letter "C:". Reading the directory "/" unter Windows returns a list
    of available drives.
- The function path(PROGRAM), which returns the absolute path of the
    program, was added to the "seed7_05.s7i" library.
- The function dir(PROGRAM), which returns the directory containing
    the program, was added to the "seed7_05.s7i" library. The
    dir(PROGRAM) function allows placing configuration data in the
    directory of the program.
- The function getenv was improved to work with Unicode environment
- The "bas7.sd7" Basic interpreter was improved to interpret RND() as
    RND and MID statements as equivalent to MID$ statements.
