I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20140105.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 library des.s7i with DES (Data Encryption Standard) cipher
    support has been added.
- The library tls.s7i has been improved to support block ciphers
    and encoding with DES.
- The functions blockSize and decode have been added to cipher.s7i
    and arc4.s7i.
- The the functions str, rotLeft and rotRight and the operators
    radix, RADIX, ~ and ><:= have been added to bin32.s7i.
- Support to write bin32 values has been added to bin32.s7i.
- The new library unicode.s7i, with functions to convert between
    Unicode encodings, has been added.
- The functions utf16beToStri, utf16leToStri, utf7ToStri and
    replaceUtf16SurrogatePairs have been improved and moved from
    charsets.s7i to unicode.s7i. The functions striToUtf8 and
    utf8ToStri have been moved from string.s7i to unicode.s7i. The
    functions striToUtf16be and striToUtf16le have been added to
- The actions FLT_MINUS, INT_MINUS and BIG_MINUS have been renamed
    to FLT_NEGATE, INT_NEGATE and BIG_NEGATE respectively.
- The library gethttps.s7i has been improved to accept links to
- The operator symbols ~ and ><:= have been added to syntax.s7i.
- Checks for -, mdiv, << and >> have been added to chkbig.sd7.
- The compiler (s7c) has been improved to do more optimizations for
- The function charLiteral has been added to the compiler.
- The compiler has been improved to avoid the generation of long
    lines for bigInteger literals.
- The function bigMinus has been renamed bigNegate and the function
    bigNegateTemp has been added to big_gmp.c and big_rtl.c.
- A check for the keyword 'restrict' has been added to chkccomp.c.
- The function chrCLitToBuffer has been added to chr_rtl.c.
- Interpreter, compiler and runtime library have been improved to
    support the action INT_XOR_ASSIGN.
- The functions utf8_char (literal.c), utf8_to_stri (striutl.c),
    utf8_bytes_missing (striutl.c), strUtf8ToStri (str_rtl.c) and
    ut8Getc (in ut8_rtl.c) have been improved to check for ranges
    of characters instead of bit patterns. This improves the
    performance of UTF-8 conversions by up to 6%.
- The functions freeArgVector and genArgVector have been added to
