I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20141019.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 s7c has been improved to process the semicolon
    operator with reduced stack usage. Thanks go to Pietro Cerutti
    for pointing out problems with the available stack size under
- In drw_x11.c the function redraw has been improved to ignore
    expose events when backing store is active. Thanks go to Brian
    Callahan for reporting problems with activated backing store
    under OpenBSD.
- The library makedata.s7i has been improved. Now conditional
    makefile parts with ifdef and ifndef are allowed. Now it is
    possible to use the ?= operator to assign a value to a variable.
    Now the value of a variable is taken from the environment, when
    it has not been defined in the makefile.
- The function setupStack has been moved from cmd_rtl.c to
- The self extracting Seed7 installer for windows has been
    improved to allow downloading the latest Seed7 release.
- Tabs in various files have been replaced with spaces.
