I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20120603.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).

- An alternate version of the function 'filInputReady' was added to
    the file "fil_unx.c" (thanks to Rainer Weikusat and Geoff Clare
    for their help). The new function is used when "version.h" does
    not define the macro 'read_buffer_empty'.
- A check and a definition of the macro 'read_buffer_empty' for
    HPUX was added to "chkccomp.c" (thanks to Richard Kettlewell and
    Marc for their suggestions).
- The example program "make7.sd7" was improved. Now it supports the
    commands 'ifeq', 'wildcard' and 'include'. The commands of a rule
    can now contain empty lines. Pattern rules can now be combined with
    dependency rules (rules without commands).
- The "ftp7.sd7" example program was improved to support the commands
    'delete' and 'rename'.
- The FAQ and the manual were improved to contain more links. The
    additional links improve also the Seed7 homepage.
- The new libraries "array.s7i", "hash.s7i", "bitset.s7i," "set.s7i",
    "bitsetof.s7i", "hashsetof.s7i", "idxarray.s7i" and "struct.s7i"
    were added. The contents of this libraries were extracted from the
    "seed7_05.s7i" library. They are included from "seed7_05.s7i", so
    no change in existing programs is necessary.
- Documentation comments were added to "array.s7i", "idxarray.s7i",
    "pixmapfont.s7i", "bitset.s7i", "bitsetof.s7i", "hashsetof.s7i",
    "set.s7i", "hash.s7i" and "bigint.s7i".
- The function 'moveFile' was added to the "ftp.s7i" library.
- Comment blocks with deactivated code were removed from the
    "seed7_05.s7i" library.
- The program "chkccomp.c" was improved, to produce no error, when
    the macro 'filInputReady' cannot be defined.
