I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20100905.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 chapter explaining the type 'time' in the manual was improved.
- The support for source level debugging in the compiler (comp.sd7)
    was improved. Now the option -g generates better #line directives
    and the 'main' function was arranged such that the current line
    shown by a debugger is correct when the program is started.
- In the "seed7_05.s7i" library the function "rpos" was overloaded to
    do a reverse search for a character in a string starting from a
    given position.
- The files "str_rtl.c", "strlib.c", "primitiv.c" and the compiler
    were improved to support the primitive action STR_RCHIPOS (which
    implements the new overloaded 'rpos' function).

Greetings Thomas Mertes
