I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20070723.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 compiler (comp.sd7) was improved to allow local functions.
- The compiler now supports arrays with indices of any type (not
    just integer indices).
- A new example program (mandelbr.sd7), to display fractals, was
- The -O2 option was added to the compiler (advantageous when
    compiling mandelbr.sd7).
- The compiler now generates static functions to allow more
- A *:= operator and the sqrAbs function were added for the
    type 'complex'.
- The reflection was changed to use the 'getValue' function
    instead of the 'value' operator.
- The compiler was improved to support the conversion of integers
    to an enumeration type.
- The compiler now compiles the programs panic.sd7 and castle.sd7.
