The goal of the changes was to reach out past the safety critical

Systems delivered using Ada have significantly lower error rates.
This is because the Ada language supports all the most modern and
effective software engineering techniques, while Ada compilers, right
out of the box, provide more compile-time and run-time consistency
checking than those for other programming languages. Ada compilers
catch errors when they are least expensive to fix, before system
integration time and deployment. This is why companies in all kinds
of industries, including Financial Systems, Power Generation, Healthcare,
Transportation, and Communications, trust Ada for their bet-the-business,
