I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20130908.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 compiler has been improved to use charvalue instead of
    intvalue, when characters are initialized. Thanks go to Brian
    Callahan, for reporting the bug. Btw.: Brian Callahan created an
    openBSD port for Seed7.
- The makefile has been added to support compilation
    under freeBSD. Thanks go to Pietro Cerutti, for providing it.
- The makefiles mk_clang.mak and have been improved
    to use the options -ffunction-sections, -fdata-sections and
- The functions bStriLe2BigInt, bytesLe2BigInt, bStriBe2BigInt,
    bytesBe2BigInt, bStriLe, bytesLe, bStriBe and bytesBe have been
    added to bytedata.s7i. This functions convert between sequences
    of bytes and bigInteger numbers.
- In bytedata.s7i the functions bytesLeAsInt and bytesBeAsInt have
    been renamed to bytesLe2Int respectively bytesBe2Int.
- Parameter names have been added to seed7_05.s7i, graph_file.s7i,
    graph.s7i, reference.s7i, pac.sd7, tetg.sd7, tet.sd7 and wiz.sd7.
- Checks for the Karatsuba multiplication and the functions bytesBe,
    bytesLe, bytesBe2BigInt and bytesLe2BigInt have been added to
- Checks for set membership in character sets have been added to
- The readability of the bitset initialisation in the compiler (s7c)
    has been improved.
- Interpreter and compiler have been improved to support the new
- The functions bigFromBytesBe, bigFromBytesLe, bigFromBStriBe,
    bigFromBStriLe, bigToBStriBe and bigToBStriLe have been added to
    both, big_gmp.c and big_rtl.c.
- In big_gmp.c and big_rtl.c the function bigImport has been
    rewritten to use bigFromBytesBe.
- The readability of the function uint2_mult in int_rtl.c has been
- The program chkccomp.c has been improved to check for a ones
    complement inttype and if casting can be used to get the element
    of a union.
- Several makefiles have been adjusted to use 'cp -p' instead of
    'cp -a'. The cp command openBSD does not support -a.
- The function bigRand in big_rtl.c has been improved to avoid that
    a random number is outside the required range.
