I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20130203.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).

- Files to generate man pages for Seed7 interpreter and compiler have
    been added to the documentation (files doc/s7.1 and doc/s7c.1).
- The makefiles have been improved to support the targets distclean
    and test.
- The operators radix and RADIX have been added to the libraries
    integer.s7i and bigint.s7i. This operators convert an integer
    respectively bigInteger to a string. The conversion uses the
    numeral system with the given base.
- The variants of the function str, which have a second parameter to
    specify a numeric base, are deprecated now and will be removed in a
    future release. The operators radix and RADIX should be used
- Interpreter and compiler have been improved to support the
    operators radix and RADIX.
- In chkint.sd7 checks for the function str with base have been
    replaced with checks for the operators radix and RADIX.
- Usages of the function str with base have been changed to usages
    of the operators radix or RADIX in the files gethttp.s7i, bas7.sd7,
    encoding.s7i and s7c.sd7.
- Errors in bas7.sd7, concerning the function VARPTR and the
    statement OPEN, have been fixed.
- The function getLineWithMacrosApplied in makedata.s7i has been
    improved to ignore space and tab characters after an escaped
- Result variables have been renamed in various libraries and example
- The currency sign character has been added to stdfont10.s7i,
    stdfont12.s7i, stdfont14.s7i, stdfont16.s7i, stdfont18.s7i,
    stdfont20.s7i, stdfont24.s7i, vecfont10.s7i and vecfont18.s7i.
- The file chkccomp.c has been improved to define a macro that
    describes what happens, when a cast of a float to int overflows.
