    Improve type name matching in gnatdbg
    Both gnatdbg.printers.PrettyPrinter and gnatdbg.generics.Match.TypeName have been enhanced to be able to match pretty GDB type names (i.e. the result of `str(gdb_type)`) in addition to their raw names (`gdb_type.name` or `gdb_type.tag`).

    PolyORB: iac: ignore pragma javaPackage
    The IDL-to-Ada compiler iac now ignores pragma javaPackage. This is a convenience for those also using idlj (idl-to-java), because idlj recognizes that pragma.

    Better subprogram input annotations
    If a subprogram takes one or more components of one global object as inputs (as opposed to reading the object as a whole), CodePeer formerly omitted these from the list of inputs in the annotations generated for the subprogram. Now the global object is listed as an input. This means that if either or both of Some_Record.Field_1 and Some_Record.Field2 are global inputs to a subprogram, then Some_Record will be listed as an input.

    gnatdbg: TypeName can recurse on basis types
    gnatdbg.generics.Match.TypeName is now able to recurse on basis types (typedef'd types or integer sub-range basis type) in order to find one type that matches the given name.
