Efficient array reset for all elementary types
The compiler now generates efficient code to reset a large array of any elementary component type to zeros, or an equivalent value for the component type, so now includes arrays of floating-point and access values instead of being limited to arrays with a discrete component type.

Pragma Ada_2020 can be used to enable Ada 2020 features that have been implemented in GNAT. Ada_2020 is a configuration pragma. This is in addition to the -gnat2020 command-line switch.

Automatically unroll static loops w/o loop invariant
Loop invariants are a known difficulty for beginners to use formal program verification. At the same time, many loops written in exercises and to familiarize oneself with the technology have static bounds and a small range. This enhancement implements loop unrolling for such loops with static bounds and not too many iterations (current threshold is at 20 iterations maximum). This way, simple loops with static bounds are proved without requiring a loop invariant. We let the user decide if she wants to use this feature or not: - by only unrolling FOR loops that have no loop (in)variant. - by disabling this feature when the switch --no-loop-unrolling is used.
This is a short guide for using the AUnit test framework. AUnit is an adaptation of the Java JUnit (Kent Beck, Erich Gamma) and C++ CppUnit (M. Feathers, J. Lacoste, E. Sommerlade, B. Lepilleur, B. Bakker, S. Robbins) unit test frameworks for Ada code.
