Seed7 2014-06-15
Seed7 is a general purpose programming language. It is a higher level language compared to Ada, C++, and Java. In Seed7, new statements and operators can be declared easily. Functions with type results and type parameters are more elegant than a template or generics concept. Object orientation is used when it brings advantages and not in places when other solutions are more obvious. Although Seed7 contains several concepts of other programming languages, it is generally not considered as a direct descendant of any other programming language.

Release Notes: A new removeTree function, which removes a directory tree, was introduced in osfiles.s7i. Checks for hash tables with character keys have been added to chkhsh.sd7. The "chkcmd.sd7" test program has been added. It checks functions that copy, move, and remove files. Under Windows, the cmdRemoveFile and cmdRemoveTree functions now rename a file before it is removed. When renaming fails, the directory is left intact. The self extracting Seed7 package for Windows has been improved to use GCC version 4.8.1 instead of 4.5.0. The make7 target has been added to the makefiles.
