I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20170915.tgz
The download is here:
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 klondike.sd7 has been added. Klondike is a
    solitaire game.
- The example program sydir7.sd7 has been improved to use fewer calls
    of fileTypeSL.
- In flt_rtl.c the function fltCmp has been improved to work correct,
- Checks in chkbig.sd7 for div, rem, divRem, mdiv and mod have been
    structured into more areas.
- The reference counting of window objects in drwlib.c and drw_rtl.c
    has been improved. When the usage_count has been initialized with
    zero the window will not be freed by reference counting. This is
    used by the empty window.
- In drw_win.c and drw_x11.c the function drwEmpty has been changed
    to create an empty window that is not freed by reference counting.
- The compiler s7c.sd7 has been improved to use drwCreate, when a new
    window value is created.
- In read_me.txt the description of macros defined in version.h has
    been improved.
- In stat_win.c the function wstati64Ext has been improved, to use
    fewer calls of GetFileAttributesExW() and _wstati64().
- In cc_conf.s7i the description of the configuration value
    NAN_COMPARISON_OKAY has been improved.
- In duration.s7i several parameter names have been changed.
- The test for NAN_COMPARISON_OKAY in chkccomp.c has been improved.
