I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20150503.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 example program cat.sd7 has been added. The program
    concatenates and prints files. Thanks go to Brian Callahan for
    providing it.
- The makefile mk_emccw.mak has been added. This makefile supports
    compiling with the emcc C compiler from Emscripten. The support of
    Emscripten is experimental (see also src/read_me.txt).
- Documentation comments have been improved in osfiles.s7i, utf8.s7i,
    cmd_rtl.c and ut8_rtl.c.
- Various changes have been done in chkccomp.c. Many configuration
    settings are now always defined and have a value of 0 or 1. The
    corresponding #ifdef directives in the C source files have been
    changed to #if directives.
- The library comp/int_act.s7i has been changed to use only
    ccConf.CHECK_INT_REM_BY_ZERO for the operators 'rem' and 'mod'.
- In cmd_rtl.c the function cmdFileType has been changed to return
    FILE_SYMLINK, when the chain of symbolic links is too long.
- In fil_rtl.c the functions seekFileLength(), offsetTell() and
    offsetSeek() have been improved to fail for terminal devices such
    as stdin. Under OpenBSD fseek() and ftell() succeeded in this case.
- In drw_x11.c the functions drwPut() and drwSetTransparentColor()
    have been changed to consider a pixmap with a window of 0 as empty.
- Calls of logFunction and logError have been added to fil_rtl.c,
    soc_rtl.c, str_rtl.c, tim_unx.c and ut8_rtl.c.
