From the CHANGELOG file:

- 7.0.5
Manual improvements in for correct conversion with HTML2DOC
additional hour offset parameter in 'now' and 'date'
fixed bug in dotree which caused crashes on Windows
'context', 'dotree' and 'symbols' now accept unquoted
symbol if the symbols is a context.
contexts can be deleted again when empty
The newlisp-tk Windows version is now wrapped with freewrap v.5.5
and based on Tcl/Tk version 8.4.1 and BWidget v.1.6
newlisp-tk.tcl has been changed for better usage of 'context'.

This was supposed to be the next released version, but meanwhile I also went to a newer PCRE library and I am in the middle of adding back-reference support for regular expressions in the replacement expression of 'replace'. Just like you wanted with backreferences in lisp espressions. Its turning out less complicated than thought, and should be done today.

I also want to get done more manual corrections and perhaps a new chapter about regular expressions, pulling togehter all functions who use them and how they relate to each other.

BTW post your lates calendar routines again. I still have the set from last year, but perhaps there have been changes/improvements.

The regular expression additions are a must! Thanks for adding this!!!

I will email the calendar programs to you. I don't care that anyone sees or uses them. I would not use first-day-of-the-month routine in any commercial products though.It should work from 2000 up but I'm not promising anything. If anyone sees any improvements (and there should be plenty) let me know.

I am right in the middle of it (regex back reference), hope to finish today.
