First lets start with the fact that it just got easier to build Ada packages for Debian. YAY!
Second it’s great to know that the Ada networking library, Anet, just hit version 0.1 – Get it while it’s hot.
Third you’ll be thrilled to know that the What would you like in Ada 202X? thread on comp.lang.ada has gone berserk! Fun read, if you have the time.
Fourth we get ZanyBlue, which is a project implementing a finite element based solution of the Maxwell field equations. En route to that goal, supporting libraries and applications are being implemented. Initial functionality covers localization support for Ada. ZanyBlue is now at version 1.0.0 BETA. Here’s the release announcement.
Finally Stephe Leake did the entire Ada 2005, 2012 (draft 17) reference manual in info format. Pretty awesome, if you ask me.
