I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20090524.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).

- Prevention against a Mac OS X malloc() error was added to the
    function filGets (in fil_rtl.c). When malloc() is not able to
    allocate memory it should return NULL. The Mac OS X malloc()
    function additionally writes a message to stderr. This behaviour
    is not according to K&R C, ANSI C, POSIX or SUS. Thanks to
    John B. Matthews and Frank Goenninger for their help.
- The FAQ and the file src/read_me.txt were improved to explain what
    happens when someone forgot to run 'make depend' before running
- The compiler (comp.sd7) was improved to generate better C code to
    copy arrays and hashes. Now the C code is accepted by gcc again and
    therefore panic.sd7 can again be compiled under Linux.
- Several changes in the interpreter and the runtime library were
    done to reduce the number of warnings generated by the C compiler.
- A new library named binary.s7i, which contains functions to read
    binary data from a string or file, was added.
- A new library named zip.s7i, which contains a zip uncompression
    function, was added.
- The type 'SIZE_TYPE' was replaced by 'size_t' in various *.c and
    *.h files.

Greetings Thomas Mertes
