Concurrent validated an Ada compiler in the past few months. It is
based on the old VADS front end, which they licensed from Verdix many years
ago. It is somewhat ironic that Aonix abandoned the old Telesoft front end,
but OCSystems went ahead and turned it into an Ada 95 compiler, and Rational
is abandoning the old VADS front end, but Concurrent went ahead and turned
it into an Ada 95 compiler. And it sounds like they have now retargeted
Linux. It is not clear whether this is an x86 linux, or a linux for their
existing machine (I'm not sure what ISA it has).
