I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20131027.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).

- Compiler and runtime library have been improved to support
    big-endian systems. Thanks go to Brian Callahan, for his support
    and for providing access to his PowerPC Macintosh under OpenBSD.
- The list of source files and the chapter about the defines used in
    version.h have been improved in src/read_me.txt.
- The library tls.s7i has been improved to avoid raising an
    exception, when the remote side closes the socket.
- The program chkccomp.c has been improved to write defines for
    DO_SIGFPE_WITH_DIV_BY_ZERO to version.h.
- Documentation comments have been added or improved in fillib.c,
    int_rtl.c, soclib.c, tim_dos.c, tim_unx.c, tim_win.c, ut8lib.c,
    ut8_rtl.c, tls.s7i and bytedata.s7i.
- The generic compare functions bigCmpGeneric, bstCmpGeneric,
    chrCmpGeneric, intCmpGeneric, rflCmpGeneric, setCmpGeneric,
    strCmpGeneric and typCmpGeneric have been improved to work
    endianness neutral. Now they work correct on little- and
    big-endian systems.
- The generic create functions bigCreateGeneric, bstCreateGeneric,
    drwCreateGeneric, rflCreateGeneric, setCreateGeneric,
    strCreateGeneric and itfCreateGeneric have been improved to work
    endianness neutral. Now they work correct on little- and
    big-endian systems.
- The new generic copy functions bigCpyGeneric, bstCpyGeneric,
    drwCpyGeneric, fltCpyGeneric, rflCpyGeneric, setCpyGeneric and
    strCpyGeneric have been added. This functions work endianness
- The new generic destroy functions bigDestrGeneric,
    drwDestrGeneric, rflDestrGeneric, setDestrGeneric and
    strDestrGeneric have been added. This functions work endianness
- The functions uintCmpGeneric, intCreateGeneric and intDestrGeneric
    have been renamed to genericCmp, genericCreate respectively
- The functions genericCpy, ptrCmp, ptrCmpGeneric, ptrCpyGeneric and
    ptrCreateGeneric have been added to int_rtl.c.
- The function cmdConfigValue in cmd_rtl.c has been improved to
    support the config value DO_SIGFPE_WITH_DIV_BY_ZERO.
- The handling of the option -l in processOptions (file s7.c) has
    been improved to work endianness neutral.
- Several functions have been optimized:
    In infile.c: get_file_name and get_file_name_ustri
    In prg_comp.c: prgSyobject
    In rfllib.c: rfl_elemcpy and rfl_idx
    In rfl_data.c: rflElemcpy, rflIdx and rflTail
- The function get_ident and the macro IDENT_TABLE have been changed
    to have an additional progtype argument.
- The function typNum in typ_data.c has been improved to use a
- In typlib.c the functions typ_num and typ_str have been improved
    to call typNum respectively typStr.
- Support for the actions ACT_ICONV and ACT_ORD has been added to
    interpreter, compiler and runtime library.
- The function id_string2 has been added to datautl.c, and used in
    ref_data.c and typ_data.c.
