SO/IEC JTC 1/SC 22/WG 9 (WG 9) is responsible for the maintenance and
revision of the Ada Programming Language and associated standards and
technical reports. As part of the language maintenance activity, WG 9 has
established a group of Ada experts as the Ada Rapporteur Group (ARG). The
ARG receives input from the Ada community at large to consider for inclusion
in revision to the Ada programming language standard. The WG 9 has produced
a number of revisions to the language in accordance with ISO policy and to
address the evolution of technology (Ada 83, Ada 95, Ada 2005, Ada

I have been asked to announce to this group that Jacob Sparre Andersen has passed away from stomach cancer on Sunday 16th of December 2018.

Jacob was admitted to hospital only a month ago, and despite his diagnosis, he retained his usual jolly and helpful self until the very end.

We hope that the many communities Jacob enriched will help preserve memories of Jacob, for his daughter Lea to find and treasure when she grows up.

All,

On behalf of SIGAda, we are pleased to announce that Dr. Peter Chapin from the Vermont Technical College has won the 2017 Robert Dewar Award for Outstanding Ada Community Contributions.

Here are some highlights of Peter's contributions to the Ada community:

* Peter developed the tool chain, wrote some of the software and supervised the students writing the rest of the software for the Vermont Lunar CubeSat ( cubesatlab.org ). The software was written in SPARK/Ada, converted to C with AdaMagic (as there was no Ada compiler for the TI MSP430 processor in the CubeSat) and compiled with a

Hi Folks,

The ZanyBlue library and utils version 1.3.0b is available for download at

http://zanyblue.sourceforge.net

or directly from the download area:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/zanyblue/files/

The changes since the last release are:

* Added a new utility zbinfo to query built-in data. This was released as
an example previously (the dumplocale example which has been dropped).
* Added encoding support to convert Wide_String values to String based on
an encoding schema, e.g., UTF-8, ISO8859-2, CP932, SHIFT_JIS, etc. To
fully
use this functionality, narrow accessors should be used which, when
printing,
use Stream_IO to avoid interaction between the Text_IO and encoded
values.
The list

I currently have a school project involving autonomous machines controlled
by Arduino hardware. The Arduino system reminds me of *Ada Mindstorms* - a
standalone computer system with its program downloaded from a PC. Arduino
programming language is based on C++ but I noted somewhere that programming
can be done in 'other languages'. I was wondering if there is an *Ada
Arduino* movement.

SIGAda has renamed its annual award for "broad, lasting contributions to Ada technology and usage" to the "Robert Dewar Award for Outstanding Ada Community Contributions". Dr. Dewar, who passed away in June 2015, received this award himself in 1995 - it was then known as SIGAda's Ada Community Contributions Award - in recognition of his innovative technological achievements surrounding the Ada language.

I am happy to announce the winner of the Ada Mascot Competition - Entry #5
- "Lady Fairy" the hummingbird. The mascot was designed by Leah Goodreau.

http://gnoga.com/mascot.html

Leah writes "My mascot was inspired by Ada Lovelace's adolescent
fascination with flight and Charles Babbage's nickname for her, "Lady
Fairy." The coloration of the mascot references the Asian fairy-bluebird,
while the silhouette is a hummingbird because of their famed speed and
sleekness."

GetAdaNow.com has already made a a nice splash. The next project will be

to Ada materials like the current collection, but involved articles, videos
and other media for tips, experiences and best practices. Examples of using

Happy Birthday Ada Lovelace

Today, December 10 2014, is the 199th birthday of Augusta Ada Byron,
aka Lady Ada Lovelace, recognised by many as the first programmer.

The programming language Ada was named in her honor.

I'd like to remind everyone that a promotional image combining the
historical figure of Ada Lovelace and the programming language Ada
is available at [1].

Do you work on industrial projects (possibly Ada-related) where
reliable software is important? Do you know people working on such
projects? Then this call for industrial presentations is targeted
to you!

Many projects could report a lot of valuable experience: sharing it
with others benefits the whole community and provides useful feedback
to the project.

I invite you to check out the appended call, and to try getting a
1-page presentation overview submitted by January 19th at the latest,
i.e. in 3 weeks from now.

Hi All,

Absolute Software Co., Inc. is hosting a 2-week immersive courses on
developing real-time systems. The first week starts 24 June and is language
independent (so tell your C++/Java friends). The second week starts 19
August for Ada, 23 September for C++. The second week for Java has not been
finalized (no pun intended :). Mark Gerhardt & Ed Colbert will be leading
the courses. See http://www.abssw.com/public-courses.html
<http://www.linkedin.com/redirect?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Eabssw%2Ecom%2Fpubli
c-courses%2Ehtml&urlhash=dBKx&_t=tracking_anet> for details.

There is a new version of the PragmAda Reusable Components (PragmARCs)
available at

http://pragmada.x10hosting.com/pragmarc.htm

This version adds a parallel version of quick sort to the components.
Unit PragmARC.Sort_Quick_In_Place has changed from a procedure to a
package exporting two procedures; programs using an older version of
Sort_Quick_In_Place will need to be modified to use the new version.

Colin Paul Gloster has had difficulty posting to the list. On his behalf, I post the following:

Dear Ada advocates:

It might be worthwhile trying
WWW.ScientificRedCards.org
to complain about so-called scientific literature in which it is claimed that programming languages which are contrary to software engineering are software-engineering languages.

Yours faithfully,
Colin Paul Gloster

Are you working on industrial projects (possibly Ada-related)
where reliable software is important? Do you know people working
on such projects? Then this call for industrial presentations is
specifically targeted to you!

Many projects could report a lot of valuable experience: sharing it
with others benefits the whole community and might provide useful
feedback to the project as well.

Hi Folks,

A new release of ZanyBlue is now available: 1.1.0 Beta. This is an Ada library
currently targeting localization support for Ada (along the lines of Java
properties) with supporting message formatting and built-in localization for about 20 locales. The properties files are compiled into Ada sources built
with your application and use to access application messages at run-time. The
run-time locale is used to select localized messages, if they are available.

The Ada programming "sub-reddit" (http://www.reddit.com/r/ada/) has
been a subgroup on the Reddit social linking and recommendation site
for well over a year now.

It's purpose is to provide "News, articles, and pointers to other
items of interest about the Ada programming language".

You are welcome to monitor the site, and register if you have your own
links to share, recommend, and comment upon.

Hi Teamers

I have a package which I wish to make available to students without their
having knowledge of its contents. I believe that a copy of the
specification and a read-only copy of the .ALI file are all that need to be
available on the LAN. (Q.1.: is this correct?)

My machine is a PC. I am running GAP's GPL compiler. (Q.2.: will the ALI
be portable if a student is running a MAC or one of the Unicies?)
Cheers

Hi All,

I am preparing a general suggestion for improvement into the group-wide ideas and innovation management system of my employer. For this I would like to back up me suggestion with some articles about the advantages of using Ada.

I have so far:

Proof that a software development project using Ada takes less - instead of more time - than expected: „The Return of Ada“ (http://gcn.com/Articles/2008/04/11/The-return-of-Ada.aspx?Page=1):.

Hi Teamers

Ages ago, someone was asking for Ada Programming Assignments for a publicly
available collection. Can someone remember the details. I have something
to offer.

Keep the faith

This call for industrial presentations is specifically targeted
to those of you who either work on industrial projects (possibly
Ada-related) where reliable software is important, or know people
working on such projects.

Please think for a moment what others might learn from the experience
gained in those projects, and get a presentation overview submitted
at the latest on January 12th, i.e. one week from now.

Considering the requests of several potential contributors, and to give
all authors the same opportunity of further refining their submission,
the Conference and Program Chairs decided that the submission deadline
for regular papers, tutorials and workshops will be extended by 2 weeks
until Monday, December 15, 2008.

FYI,

The current issue of Software Tech News published by The Data &
Analysis Center for Software (DACS) is focused on Intellectual Property
and Software. There are a number of interesting articles. One is
written by Robert Dewar titled: “Software and Intellectual Property
Rights”. In a typically Robert Dewar way, he starts out by saying: “The
first thing to be said is that the title of this article is confusing
and inappropriate.”

Hi all,

"Who's Using Ada: Real-World Projects Powered by the Ada Programming Language"
http://www.seas.gwu.edu/~mfeldman/ada-project-summary.html

I've just put up the June edition of the Ada project catalog. Thank you all very
much for the numerous additions and corrections. The list of defense-related
projects is longer than before, but other categories are also growing as people send me tips. I'm glad to see growth in the desktop apps group; I suspect there are more of those I haven't learned of yet.

Hi all,

Sorry for this mildly off-topic post.

Many members of this list are, I'm sure, also regular readers of comp.lang.ada. I'm trying to figure out the best way to read this and other technical Usenet groups. I'm doing this from my home Mac, which is also my office Mac since I retired from GW and moved to Portland.
