I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20140601.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 has been refactored. Code has been moved from s7c.sd7
    to several compiler libraries. The compiler libraries are licensed
    with the GPL and can be found in seed7/lib/comp. The refactored
    compiler is the first compiler of the 3.0 series.
- The chapter in the manual about the foreign function interface has
    been improved.
- Checks for parse and str have been added to chkflt.sd7 and
- In chkccomp.c code has been moved from main() to the new functions
    numericSizes and numericProperties.
- Usages of the macro logError have been added to cmd_rtl.c and
- The stack size defined in mk_mingc.mak, mk_mingw.mak, mk_msys.mak
    and mk_nmake.mak has been changed from 4194304 to 8388608.
- The function cstri_buf_to_stri has been added to striutl.c.
- The generation of float literals in the compiler has been improved
    to avoid that precision is lost.
- Interpreter and compiler have been improved to support the actions
    BLN_EQ and BLN_NE.
