Automatic reordering of components in record types
The compiler can now reorder components in record types with convention Ada in order to fix blatant inefficiencies that the layout of components in textual order would bring about. The reordering is automatic and silent by default, but both characteristics can be toggled: pragma No_Component_Reordering disables it either on a per-record-type or on a global basis, while -gnatw.q gives a warning for each affected component in record types.

Relax alignment constraint for record extensions
On x86 and, more generally, architectures that do not require strict alignment for memory accesses, the compiler now accepts size clauses on record type extensions that effectively lower the alignment of the type, if there is also a representation clause on the type.

Simplified translation of simple private types
Untagged private types with no discriminant whose full view is not in SPARK are now translated in Why3 as clones of the predefined __private abstract type. This should allow users of interactive proof assistants to more easily map these private types to a logic type of their choice.
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.
