I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20110403.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 compiler (comp.sd7) was improved to generate less code to
    initialize arrays. Repeated elements in array initialisations are
    recognized and the initialisation is done with loops instead of
    individual assignments. When compiling panic.sd7 this optimisation
    reduces the size of the generated C program by 77% and the size of
    the executable by 69%.
- The compiler (comp.sd7) was improved to generate string literals
    with reduced space requirements.
- The function 'getArgv' in "arr_rtl.c" was changed to assume that
    the parameters 'arg_0' and 'exePath' are not NULL.
- The code, to recognize constant expressions in the compiler, was
- The superfluous functions 'gkbXpos' and 'gkbYpos' were removed from
