I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20180601.tgz
The download is here:
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 library tls.s7i has been improved to support the server_name
    extension and to process handshake messages, that extend over several
    tls message records. Additionally TLS version 1.2 is used now.
- The library x509cert.s7i has been improved to accept a validity with
    times in GeneralizedTime data elements (additionally to times in
    UTCTime data elements).
- The library browser.s7i has been improved to support calling Safari
    under Mac OS X.
- Tests for the functions environment(), getenv() and setenv() have
    been added to chkcmd.sd7.
- A test that checks the sorting of an array of strings has been added
    to chkstr.sd7. This checks the compare() function for strings.
- The compiler s7c has been improved to create better code for the
    option -tf (trace functions). Now the trace functions are added after
    the declarations (such that older C compilers will accept this also).
- In chkflt.sd7 tests for NaN have been grouped together.
- In chkovf.sd7 tests for the binomial coefficient have been split into
- The program chkccomp.c has been improved to define the macros
    DEFINE_WGETENV, DEFINE_WSETENV, os_environ, os_getenv, os_setenv,
    DEFINE_STRUCT_STATI64_EXT, DEFINE_FSTATI64_EXT, os_lstat, os_stat,
    os_fstat, os_stat_struct, os_fstat_struct, HAS_SELECT and HAS_MMAP.
- In int_rtl.c the macro DECIMAL_DIGITS has been improved to work with
    unsigned numbers.
- In str_rtl.c the function strCmpGeneric() has been changed back to
    the old behaviour. Now strCmpGeneric() and strCompare() have again
    the same behaviour. It has turned out that sorting an array of
    strings worked wrong, when the program was compiled.
- In pcs_win.c the function prepareCommandLine has been improved and
    the function copyQuotedPart has been added. Now the command line
    created for CreateProcessW() has fewer quoted parameters. Now
    parameters that contain a space or a quotation (") or a control
    character or a character byond ASCII are quoted. All other parameters
    are not quoted.
- Definitions of USE_MMAP, os_environ, os_fstat, DEFINE_WSTATI64_EXT,
    os_lstat, os_stat, os_stat_orig, os_stat_struct, os_fstat_struct,
    DEFINE_WSETENV, os_setenv, os_putenv and USE_DIRENT have been removed
    from the makefiles.
- In several files usages of USE_MMAP have been replaced by usages of
- The file read_me.txt has been updated.
- In chkccomp.c the functions checkForLimitedArrayLiteralLength() and
    determineStatFunctions() have been added and the functions
    determineEnvironDefines() and determineBigIntDefines() have been
    improved. Now the test for the GMP library enforces static linking.
    been improved to define if matherr() or _matherr() should be defined.
- Log functions have been improved in big_gmp.c, big_rtl.c and
