I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20110508.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).

- FAQ answers about Seed7s application area, Unicode support, Seed7s
    closures and how the compiler implements them, were added.
- A new example program (sydir7.sd7), an utility to syncronize
    directory trees, was added.
- The comanche.sd7 webserver was improved to use the Seed7
    interpreter (hi) to execute CGI scripts with the extension ".sd7".
- Interpreter, compiler and runtime library were improved to support
    the action CMD_TO_OS_PATH.
- The compiler (comp.sd7) was improved to create #line directives
    with the path notation of the operating system.
- The file "setpaths.c" was added. It is used during the make process
    to write the configuration macros SEED7_LIB, COMPILER_LIB,
    COMP_DATA_LIB and SEED7_LIBRARY to the file "version.h".
- The makefiles mk_mingw.mak, mk_nmake.mak, mk_msvc.mak, mk_bcc32.mak
    and mk_bccv5.mak were improved to use the new file "setpaths.c",
    instead of creating their own versions of "setpaths.c".
- The configuration macros SEED7_LIB, COMPILER_LIB, COMP_DATA_LIB and
    SEED7_LIBRARY were changed to use the standard path representation
    and UTF-8 encoding.
- The function relativeToProgramPath was added to the file
