Zip-Ada v.35

The claim to fame of the latest Zip-Ada release is performance, or as Gautier himself puts it:

Major performance improvement [NEW]: decompression 10x faster, compression 3x faster, thanks to a workaround for slow ‘Read, ‘Write attributes in GNAT & ObjectAda

The full release announcement is available here, and there’s also a SourceForge page for the project.

Finally, the long comp.lang.ada thread that led to these massive performance improvements can be read here. It is an interesting read, to be sure.
