XAdaLib 2012 for Snow Leopard

I’m sorry for the lack of updates to the Ada-DK website, but I’ve been on vacation for most of August, and updating the site while riding across Iceland on motorcycles with my wife does not really mix well with staying on top of things in the world of Ada programming.

But now I’m back, and my first post will be about the release of XAdaLib 2012 for Snow Leopard, a collection of the following Ada tools for the Mac:

  • GTK Ada 2.24.2 with GTK+ 2.24.5 complete
  • Glade 3.8.2
  • GnatColl 2012
  • Florist 2012
  • AICWL 1.3

There’s both documentation and examples in the download package, so if you’re on Snow Leopard this might be an easy way to get the mentioned Ada tools up and running. You can read the full release announcement here.

GNAT GPL 2012 is here!

I’ve been waiting anxiously for the 2012 edition of the GNAT GPL compiler and the accompanying GNAT Programming Studio update, and now the wait is finally over:

Get the GNAT GPL 2012 package

Coinciding with the GNAT GPL 2012 release, we also get a bunch of updates to all the other great libre.adacore.com tools, such as:

And a whole slew more. I’ve personally installed GNAT GPL 2012, the new GPS, AWS 2012, GNATColl 2012, Florist 2012 and XML/Ada 2012 on my Slackware64 boxes, and everything went without a hitch. It just worked. Next up: Getting familiar with some of new Ada 2012 features. Should be fun.
