AdaControl 1.13r8 released

AdaControl just got updated by Jean-Pierre Rosen to version 1.13r8. New in this release is a lot of bug fixes and most importantly: Ada 2005 support.

AdaControl is a free (GMGPL) tool that detects the use of various kinds of constructs in Ada programs. Its first goal is to control proper usage of style or programming rules, but it can also be used as a powerful tool to search for use (or non-use) of various forms of programming styles or design patterns. Searched elements range from very simple, like the occurrence of certain entities, declarations, or statements, to very sophisticated, like verifying that certain programming patterns are being obeyed.

AdaControl can be fully integrated into the GPS IDE, so you can run AdaControl, fix the violations and edit the rules directly from GPS. Handy!

AdaControl is GMGPL licensed.

There’s extensive documentation available, and you can read the full release announcement here.
