I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20111204.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 makefile "mk_djgpp.mak" was improved to work for DJGPP under
    DOS (thanks to "Rugxulo" for his help to improve "mk_djgpp.mak").
- The old makefile "mk_djgpp.mak" was renamed to "mk_djgp2.mak".
- The option -?, which writes helping information, was added to the
    hi interpreter and to the compiler (comp.sd7).
- The "ftp7.sd7" example program was improved to support the command
- The "sydir7.sd7" example program was improved to accept Unix and
    DOS paths.
- The directions N, S, W, E were renamed to NORTH, SOUTH, WEST and
    EAST in "dna_base.s7i", "blue.dna", "green.dna", "indigo.dna",
    "red.dna", "tan.dna", "violet.dna" and "white.dna".
- Result variables were renamed in "bigrat.s7i", "complex.s7i",
    "rational.s7i" and "time.s7i".
- Interpreter, compiler and runtime library (files "cmd_unx.c",
    "cmd_win.c", "cmd_drv.h", "cmdlib.c", "cmdlib.h" and "primitiv.c")
    were improved to support the new action "CMD_START_PROCESS".
- A definition of the function 'startProcess' was added to the
    "shell.s7i" library.
- The function get_primact in "actutl.c" was improved to suppress
    writing the list of actions, which are implemented by the same
- The function timNow() in "tim_dos.c", "tim_unx.c" and "tim_win.c"
    and the functions timFromTimestamp() and timSetLocalTZ() in
    "tim_rtl.c" were improved to use localtime_s(), when the
    prepocessor macro USE_LOCALTIME_S is defined.
- An include command for "math.s7i" was added to "bas7.sd7",
    "lander.sd7" and "planets.sd7".
