Ada Bindings for ØMQ 2.1.0

Today Per Sandberg updated his ØMQ (zeromq) binding to reflect the 2.1.0 specs.

In case you don’t know what ØMQ is, here’s an explanation in hundred words:

ØMQ (ZeroMQ, 0MQ, zmq) looks like an embeddable networking library but acts like a concurrency framework. It gives you sockets that carry whole messages across various transports like in-process, inter-process, TCP, and multicast. You can connect sockets N-to-N with patterns like fanout, pubsub, task distribution, and request-reply. It’s fast enough to be the fabric for clustered products. Its asynchronous I/O model gives you scalable multicore applications, built as asynchronous message-processing tasks. It has a score of language APIs and runs on most operating systems. ØMQ is from iMatix and is LGPL open source.
