I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20120923.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).

- Experimental support for automatic memory management with reference
    counting was added to the interpreter.
- The libraries external_file.s7i, field.s7i, stritext.s7i, gzip.s7i,
    listener.s7i, pixmap_file.s7i, shell.s7i, socket.s7i, strifile.s7i,
    dir.s7i, utf16.s7i, utf8.s7i and xmldom.s7i were improved to use
    the function toInterface.
- The function name(PROGRAM) was improved, to return the name of the
    program without extension and without path.
- The interpreter was improved to support the action ITF_DESTR.
