I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20110605.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 new libraries "boolean.s7i", "integer.s7i" and "string.s7i"
    were added. The contents of this libraries were extracted from the
    "seed7_05.s7i" library. They are included from "seed7_05.s7i", so
    no change in existing programs is necessary.
- Declarations of color constants were moved from "draw.s7i" to
- The declaration of 'graph_file' was moved from "draw.s7i" to the
    new library "graph_file.s7i".
- The declaration of 'duration' was moved from "time.s7i" to the new
    library "duration.s7i".
. The declaration of 'pixmapFontFile' was moved from "pixmapfont.s7i"
    to the new library ""pixmap_file.s7i".
- The functions 'getATime', 'getCTime', 'getMTime', 'setATime' and
    'setMTime' were moved from "time.s7i" to "osfiles.s7i"
- The function 'bigFileSize' was moved from "bigfile.s7i" to
- Documentation comments were added or improved in the files
    "bigint.s7i", "bigrat.s7i", "bitmapfont.s7i", "complex.s7i",
    "dir.s7i", "duration.s7i", "echo.s7i", "enable_io.s7i",
    "external_file.s7i", "file.s7i", "float.s7i", "font.s7i",
    "graph_file.s7i", "integer.s7i", "keybd.s7i", "line.s7i",
    "math.s7i", "null_file.s7i", "osfiles.s7i", "pixmap_file.s7i",
    "rational.s7i", "screen.s7i", "socket.s7i", "stdio.s7i",
    "strifile.s7i", "string.s7i", "utf16.s7i", "text.s7i", "time.s7i"
    and "window.s7i".
- The function 'read_zip_dir' was added to the "zip.s7i" library.
- Checks for length, tell and seek with STD_NULL were added to
- Interpreter, compiler and runtime library were improved to support
    the action STR_RIPOS. This allows searching for a string from a
    given position to the left.
- Checks for the function 'rpos' were added to "chkstr.sd7".
- Documentation comments were added or improved in the files
    "big_rtl.c", "str_rtl.c" and "int_rtl.c".
- The experimental actions REF_CAST, ITF_TO_HEAP and ITF_TO_INTERFACE
    were added.
- The functions 'disconnect_entity' and 'disconnect_param_entities'
    were added to "name.c".
- The function 'act_create' in "actlib.c" was improved to remove the
    names from the formal parameters. This is done with
