I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20120617.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 and manual were improved to contain more links. The additional
    links improve also the Seed7 homepage.
- The FAQ answer, which explains abstract data types, was improved.
- The type 'PRIMITIVE_FILE' was renamed to 'clib_file'.
- Documentation comments were improved in the libraries array.s7i,
    bigrat.s7i, bitset.s7i, boolean.s7i, integer.s7i, charsets.s7i,
    bigint.s7i, complex.s7i, dir.s7i, echo.s7i, char.s7i, keybd.s7i,
    line.s7i, listener.s7i, null_file.s7i, scanfile.s7i, shell.s7i,
    socket.s7i, stdio.s7i, strifile.s7i, string.s7i, stritext.s7i,
    bigfile.s7i, text.s7i, utf16.s7i, utf8.s7i and wrinum.s7i.
- The new libraries "enable_input.s7i" and "enable_output.s7i" were
    added. The contents of this libraries were extracted from the
    "enable_io.s7i" library.
- The new library "clib_file.s7i" was added. The contents of this
    library was extracted from the "external_file.s7i" library.
- The compiler (comp.sd7) was improved to accept a Windows path.
- The example program "make7.sd7" was improved to support the
    commands 'ifneq', '-include' and '+='.
- The program "toutf8.sd7" and the library "charsets.s7i" were
    improved to support the code pages 277, 280 and 297.
- The control characters of the code pages 037, 273, 285, 500 and
    1047 in "charsets.s7i" were improved.
