*BSD + Ada Just Got Better

With this announcement, using Ada on a *BSD system suddenly became a _very_ viable option.

I don’t know how fast the FreeBSD Ports community work, but it probably wont take several months before GNAT-AUx, XML/Ada, GPRBuild, GTK/Ada, GPS, GNATPython, and AWS are available to FreeBSD users.

The same packages were also added to the NetBSD’s pkgsrc repositories.

Once again the people over at dragonlace.net must be commended for their gargantuan effort in bringing Ada to the *BSD’s.
