I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20080217.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).

- A new chapter about object orientation was added to the manual
    (Many thanks for the feedback to Leonardo Cecchi, Malcolm McLean
    and Reinder Verlinde).
- The manual was changed to mention that the 'in' parameter of arrays
    and structs is a reference ('ref') parameter.
- The faq was improved to contain a paragraph about static type
- The implementation type NULL_FILE was renamed to null_file.
- The struct copy of the compiler (comp.sd7) was changed to leave the
    dynamic type unchanged.
- The following primitive actions were added or improved in the
    compiler (comp.sd7): FIL_ERR, FIL_IN, FIL_OUT, FLT_GROW, FLT_MCPY,
    and STR_GETENV.
- The primitive action CLS_CREATE2 was changed to call the
    CLEAR_TEMP_FLAG macro (This is a fix for a bug found by
    Leonardo Cecchi).
- The function match_subexpr_type was changed to allow normal (not
    DYNAMIC) interface functions to be used for implementation values.
- The primitive action PRC_GETENV was renamed to STR_GETENV.
- The bas7.sd7 (basic interpreter) example program was improved.
- A bug in the primitive action RFL_NOT_ELEM was fixed.
- The functions copy_list, array_to_list and struct_to_list were
    change to return thecreated list.
