The str functions have been changed such that str(48879, 16) returns "beef". The program make7.sd7 has been improved to support multiple targets and the option -C. The handling of floating point divisions in the compiler has been improved. The makefile mk_clang.mak has been added to support the clang C compiler.
Release Notes: The Seed7 interpreter has been renamed to s7. The function drwOpen in drw_win.c has been improved to hide the console window when the program was not started from a console. Descriptions of the operators "sci" and "exp" have been added to the manual. Documentation comments have been added to clib_file.s7i. In pixmap_file.s7i, the functions for pixmapFontFiles have been improved. In cmd_win.c, the functions prepareCommandLine and cmdStartProcess have been improved. In striutl.c, the functions escape_command and cp_to_command have been improved to work correctly under Windows. Parameter names have been added to various files.
Release Notes: The Seed7 compiler has been improved to support constant pixmaps and to omit array constant declarations for unused arrays. Result variables have been renamed in various libraries and example programs. The functions getPixel and imagePixmap have been added or improved. Pictures of a grating and a vampire have been added to pic16.s7i and pic32.s7i. The function getValue has been overloaded for PRIMITIVE_WINDOW values in the library progs.s7i. Documention comments have been added to the operators & and <& in the library string.s7i. A check for the window close button has been added to the function gkbKeyPressed in drw_win.c.
