I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20080120.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).

- Optimisations for the string functions =, <>, stri[num], &, upper,
    lower, pos, rpos, split and for the array indexing were added to
    the compiler (comp.sd7).
- Documentation comments were added to bigint.s7i, draw.s7i, bas7.sd7
    and mahjong.sd7.
- The bas.sd7 (basic interpreter) example program was improved and
    renamed to bas7.sd7.
- The functions polar, parse, str and digits were added or improved
    in complex.s7i.
- The read_dir, chdir, mkdir functions were improved to raise
    FILE_ERROR on failure.
- The functions open_dir and open_dir_path of the dir.s7i library
    were changed to return STD_NULL when the directory does not exist.
- The functions getDigits, skipSpace, skipWhiteSpace were added to
    the scanner.s7i library.
- The digits function for the type float was improved to never
    return -0 .
- The new lpad0 operator was added to convert integers to strings
    with leading zeros.
- The time conversion functions str_yyyy_mm_dd, str_mm_dd_yy,
    str_mm_dd_yyyy, str_d_m_yy and str_d_m_yyyy were added to the
    time.s7i library.
- Checks were added to the chkint.sd7 and chkstr.sd7 example
- The code to handle a failing realloc for arrays was improved.
- Bugs in the compiler, with str_append and with val or ref
    parameters as result in the return statement, were fixed.
