I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20080902.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 FAQ about development speed and type checking was improved.
- The chapters about boolean, bigInteger, rational, bigRational,
    float, char, complex, string, reference, ref_list and program in
    the manual, were improved.
- The functions rflTail and rflRange were improved to raise
    MEMORY_ERROR instead of RANGE_ERROR in out of memory situations.
- The 'conv' operator was improved to convert an integer to a float,
    rational, complex or bigRational, to convert a float to a complex
    and to convert a bigInteger to bigRational.
- The function getSymbolWithHtmlEntities was added to the
    scanfile.s7i library.
- The getc function for the type null_file was improved.
- The 'conj' operator was added for the type complex.
- The compiler (comp.sd7) was improved to support the primitive
    action FLT_ICONV.
- Several changes were done to support compilation when
    DO_HEAP_STATISTIC is defined.
- The documentation file src/read_me.txt was improved.
- The 'reference' functions category, getType, is_var, local_vars,
    local_consts, body, array_to_list, array_min_index,
    array_min_index, struct_to_list, interface_to_struct, getValue,
    setCategory, setType were improved to raise the exception
    RANGE_ERROR when a reference is NIL or does not have the required
