I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20120205.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).

- FAQ answers, explaining call-by-name and how it is implemented in
    Seed7, were added.
- The "ftpserv.sd7" example program was improved to work with
    various ftp client programs.
- The speed of the function 'socLineRead' in "soc_rtl.c" was
    improved (this function implements getln() for sockets).
- The Unicode support of the "ftp.s7i" library and the "ftp7.sd7"
    example program was improved.
- Documentation comments were improved in "poll.s7i" and
- The files "pol_sel.c" and "pol_unx.c" were improved to use the
    const qualifier.
- The compiler (comp.sd7) was improved to generate optimized code
    for the actions "STR_ELEMCPY" and "STR_POSCPY" (which were used
    by the @:= operator).
- Testcases for the @:= operator were added to "chkstr.sd7".
- The program "chkccomp.c" was changed to include "version.h" and
    to define OS_OFF_T_SIZE. This way "chkccomp.c" can use the macro
    definitions for os_off_t, TURN_OFF_FP_EXCEPTIONS and
    DEFINE_MATHERR_FUNCTION from "version.h" instead of "chkccomp.h".
- The files "cmd_rtl.c" and "fil_rtl.c" were changed to use the
    macro OS_OFF_T_SIZE.
- In "osfiles.s7i" the type 'fileType' was introduced as result type
    for 'fileType' and 'fileTypeSL'.
- The function 'str' for the type 'fileMode' was improved in
- The number of calls of fileno() was reduced in "con_cap.c",
    "con_tcp.c", "kbd_inf.c" and "kbd_poll.c".
- Result variables were renamed in "external_file.s7i", "ftp.s7i",
    "osfiles.s7i", "shell.s7i", "socket.s7i", "string.s7i", "tar.s7i",
    "utf16.s7i", "utf8.s7i" and "ftpserv.sd7".
