I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20110203.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).

- Many thanks to Bogdan Lisovich for his help to investigate and fix
    a compilation problem under Mac OS.
- The fannkuch-redux benchmark "fannkuch.sd7" from "Bart C" was added
    (Many thanks to "Bart C" for releasing "fannkuch.sd7" under the
- The comanche.sd7 webserver was improved to support CGI programs.
- The chapter explaining 'operating system access' in the manual was
- The function 'getCgiParameters(file)' was added to "cgi.s7i".
- The functions 'setenv' and 'file(PROGRAM)' were added to
- The interpreter and the compiler were improved to support the
    function 'getenv'.
- Several changes were done to support compiling with a C++ compiler.
- The keyword INLINE was removed from the functions bigCmp,
    bigCreate, bstCmp, bstCreate, fltCmp, intCmp, rflCreate, setCmp,
    setCreate, strCompare and strCreate (C++ does not generate an
    externally visible function for inline functions).
- The compiler (comp.sd7) was improved to generate runtime library
    prototypes with constant types.
- The function timFromIntTimestamp was introduced in "tim_rtl.c" and
    used in "timlib.c" and in compiled code.
- The example programs dirtst.sd7, eliza.sd7, fib.sd7, gkbd.sd7,
    hamu.sd7, kbd.sd7, rand.sd7, rever.sd7, sl.sd7, snake.sd7 and
    tak.sd7 were improved to use the operator <& instead of multiple
    calls of write.
- The const qualifier was added to function prototypes in
    "arr_rtl.c", "arr_rtl.h", "big_rtl.c", "big_gmp.c", "big_drv.h",
    "blockutl.c", "blockutl.h", "drw_x11.c", "drw_win.c", "drw_drv.h",
    "fil_rtl.c", "fil_rtl.h", "ref_data.c", "ref_data.h", "soc_rtl.c",
    "soc_rtl.h", "tim_rtl.c", "traceutl.c" and "traceutl.h".
- The macro 'os_fstat_struct' was introduced in the files
    "mk_bccv5.mak", "common.h"" "infile.c", "fil_rtl.c", "cmd_rtl.c".
- Parameter names were added to the prototypes in the files
    "blockutl.h", "dir_win.h", "doany.h" and "traceutl.h".
