Announcing a new version of TASH, an Ada binding to Tcl/Tk.

Go to <> for the full story.  Here is
a peek at the release notes for this version:

 - TASH version 8.3.2a supports Tcl/Tk version 8.3.2 and was compiled
   with GNAT 3.12p.  See the Scriptics Tcl/Tk site
   <> for information on
   new features Tcl/Tk 8.3.2.

 - This is the first full release of the TASH thick binding to Tcl.
   For more information on this new binding, see Introduction to TASH
   <>.  If you have been using the
   preliminary thick binding, note that TASH object types string,
   integer and float were removed in favor of using Ada string,
   generic integer and float types.

 - As soon as I get it built, the file will contain
   pre-compiled Windows binary libraries for Tcl and Tk (libtcl82.a
   and libtk82.a) as well as the TASH C interfaces (tclmacro.o and

 - Removed the lib directory which was used as a GNAT Ada library in
   order to simplify the build procedures. You can still build a GNAT
   library yourself by copying the .ali, .ads, and .o files to a
   separate directory.

Also, if you are attending SIGAda 2000, be sure to sign up for my
TASH tutorial Monday morning.  For more info, see
