HelloI have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20120909.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).

- The chapters about predefined statements and the foreign function
    interface in the manual, were improved.
- An explanation, why the div operator is used for integer divisions,
    was added to the FAQ.
- The FAQ about garbage collection was improved.
- Links to EBNF syntax descriptions and exceptions were added to the
    HTML version of the manual.
- EBNF syntax descriptions in the manual were improved.
- Interpreter and compiler were improved to support the actions
- The library shell.s7i was improved to define the functions
    getSearchPath and environment.
- The function path(PROGRAM) was improved to return the accurate
    value under all circumstances.
- Several preprocessor defines were moved from "common.h to the new
    include file "config.h".
- In cmdlib.c the function toArraytype() was introduced and used in
    cmd_environment() and cmd_getSearchPath().
- In cmd_rtl.c the functions add_stri_to_array() and
    complete_stri_array() were introduced and used in read_dir(),
    getSearchPath() and cmdEnvironment().
- Parameter names in drw_win.c, drw_x11.c and drw_dos.c were changed
    to fit to the names used in graph.s7i.
- Parameter names in clib_file.s7i, keybd.s7i, sockbase.s7i,
    socket.s7i, utf8.s7i, fil_rtl.c, gkb_rtl.c, kbd_rtl.c, soc_dos.c,
    soc_rtl.c and ut8_rtl.c were changed to fit to each other.
- The function conv_from_os_stri() was added to striutl.c .
- The function concat_path in str_rtl.c was improved to work
    correctly, when the relative path contains "..".
- In several makefiles defines for SEARCH_PATH_DELIMITER and
    os_environ were added and defines for
    defines for OS_PATH_HAS_DRIVE_LETTERS.
- A description of several C preprocessor macros used in "version.h"
    and "config.h" was added to the file "src/read_me.txt".
- Parameter names were added to function definitions in various
- Documentation comments were added or improved in the files
    "clib_file.s7i", "external_file.s7i", "socket.s7i", "fil_rtl.c" and
- The function determineEnvironDefines was added to "chkccomp.c".
