I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20121104.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 function homeDir was added to the library osfiles.s7i.
    Interpreter and compiler were improved to support homeDir.
- The libraries makedata.s7i and make.s7i were improved to support
    replacement macros.
- A check for division by zero with /:= was added to chkflt.sd7.
- The compiler (comp.sd7) was improved to use definitions of
- The program chkccomp.c was improved. Now it manages the macros
    likely, unlikely, UNISTD_H_PRESENT, POPEN_MISSING, os_utime_orig,
    ISNAN_WITH_UNDERLINE and HOME_DIR_ENV_VAR. Additionally chkccomp.c
    does not depend on the definitions of long_long_EXISTS,
    long_long_SUFFIX_LL, __int64_EXISTS, __int64_SUFFIX_LL and
    USE_BUILTIN_EXPECT in chkccomp.h.
- The functions flt_div and flt_div_assign in fltlib.c were improved
    to work correctly when CHECK_FLOAT_DIV_BY_ZERO is defined.
- Several #defines were ommitted from the makefiles.
- Explanations of several version.h #defines were added to
