I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20070319.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 interpreter was changed to execute programs only when they
    have no errors.
- The option -x to execute programs, even when they have errors, was
    added to the interpreter.
- The *:= operator for the types integer, float, bigInteger and
    bigRational was added.
- The chkbig.sd7 program was improved to check the *:= operator for
    big integers.
- The compiler was improved to support the *:= operator and the
    arr_cat action.
- Several improvements for compile time error messages were done.
- The err.sd7 example program, which checks compile time error
    messages, was improved.
