I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20090802.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 static type checking was improved.
- The chapters explaining the for-each statement and the types
    integer, hash and set in the manual were improved.
- The chapters explaining the file types external_file, utf8_file,
    keyboard_file and socket in the manual were added or improved.
- The chapters explaining file scanning and the function
    argv(PROGRAM) were improved.
- Documentation comments were added to the functions flush, writeln,
    eof, hasNext, length, listen and accept in socket.s7i .
- The functions gets(utf16le_file, integer) and
    gets(utf16be_file, integer) in the utf16.s7i library were improved.

Greetings Thomas Mertes
