I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20151110.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 program toutf8.sd7 has been improved to accept byte order
    marks for the encodings UTF-16BE and UTF-16LE.
- Documentation comments have been improved in bigint.s7i,
    integer.s7i, big_gmp.c, big_rtl.c, bst_rtl.c, flt_rtl.c,
    int_rtl.c, pcs_rtl.c, rfl_data.c, set_rtl.c, str_rtl.c and
- In analyze.c and prg_comp.c function names and parameter names
    have been changed to use camel case.
- The global variable programPath and the function
    relativeToProgramPath have been removed. They were only used when
    the makefile setting PATHS_RELATIVE_TO_EXECUTABLE was active (this
    setting was not used by any makefile for years).
- All explanations related to PATHS_RELATIVE_TO_EXECUTABLE has been
    removed from the FAQ and from src/read_me.txt.
- The functions hsh_incl and hsh_update in hshlib.c have been
    changed to raise RANGE_ERROR when cmp_func is NULL.
