Ada: Young, Smart and Evolving
The Ada language is now 10 years old, like SI and SI-Information. A free compiler, called GNAT, will soon be available from the Free Software Foundation (GNU). Ada is heavily used in high-tech applications. After 10 years, it was felt Ada should be revised. This revision is well on its way, and we describe here the structure of the revised language definition, as well as an overview of the object-oriented features of the language.
