It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything from Stephane Carrez’ excellent Java2Ada blog, but today that drought is ended with the release of Stephane’s Ada Utility Library v1.5.0. As the name implies the library provides a bunch of Ada utilities, chief among those being concurrent fifo queues and arrays, process creation/spawning and SHA1/HMAC encoding. There’s lots more in there, so be sure to check it out.
You can read the full release announcement here or you could simply svn clone it and get to the goodies immediately:
svn checkout http://ada-util.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ ada-util-read-only
What I’d really like to see in this package is a standalone implementation of Stephane’s OpenID stuff. I’ve got a project that needs OpenID, and it would be really nice to be able to do “with Util.OpenID” and then make it fly. One can dream!
