Hi,

Ada was included in the WinAVR suite late last year and I was wondering how the project was progressing. I looked at the AVR-Ada website but it did not appear to have anything added. How is the run-time library going? Presently I'm working on safety systems for Railway and it would be nice to promote Ada in new projects.

Regards,

There had not been much progress in the mean time. AVR-Ada is a hobby project of mine. I hadn't much free time recently that I could dedicate to that project.

If you have a (more or less) professional interest in AVR-Ada I recommend to contact AdaCore. They seem to see some rising interest recently and started to modify gcc-GNAT for better support of small devices like the AVR chips.

Concerning the support library I mainly extended the timing support (e.g. Suspension Objects, Timing Events, different implementations of Duration'Small). A smaller point are output routines for Fixed Point types whose 'Small value is a (negative) power of two.

If you want to get priority to some run-time feature feel free to either post a Feature Request at Sourceforge or send an email to me directly.
