    Do not ignore sources when compiler cannot be found
    When the compiler for a language could not be found, sources of the language were ignored. This is no longer the case, but if one of these sources needs to be compiled, an error will be reported and the GPR tool will fail.

    Avoid following too many symbolic links
    When gprbuild or gprclean were invoked without switch -eL, some symbolic links were still needlessly followed. Now, only the minimum number of symbolic links are followed.

    Extending a package from a project being extended
    In an extending project A, it is now possible to extend a package P from the project being extended B, when project B is extending another project C and package P is not declared in project B but has only been inherited from project C.

    Environment variables TEMP and TMP for temp dir
    In addition to environment variable TMPDIR, TEMP and TMP are potentially used by the Project Manager to store temporary files. If one of these environment variables designates the absolute path of a directory, this directory is used to store the temporaty files. TMPDIR is checked first, then TEMP, then TMP. If none of those designates the full path of a directory, then the temporary files are stored in object directories.

    GPRbuild response files
    GPRbuild now supports response files. A response file is a text file, specified to gprbuild with argument '@<argument_file_path>'. The path is either absolute or relative to the current working directory. Each line in a response file is an argument for gprbuild. An argument '@<file>' is not allowed in a response file.

    Add support for skipping new project generation
    The new GPRinstall's --no-project command line option and install package attribute Install_Project can be used to disable generation and installation of the project file.

  • GNAT Pro | GPRbuild
    Feb 1st, 2017

    New gprbuild switch—no-complete-output / -n
    A new switch is added to gprbuild, --no-complete-output or equivalent -n. This switch is only accepted on the command line, not in package Builder. When this switch is used, no files .stderr or .stdout are created by the compilers. This switch also cancels any previous switch --complete-output.

    Jan 5th, 2017

    New GPRname switch—ignore-duplicate-files
    GPRname has a new switch --ignore-duplicate-files which will ignore identical basenames when scanning for sources. In addition, a warning is now emitted by default when not using this switch to warn about potential conflicts when duplicate filenames are found.

  • GNAT Pro | GPRbuild
    Dec 14th, 2016

    New attribute Required_Artifacts
    A new attribute Required_Artifacts has been introduced. This new attribute complements the Artifacts attribute and is very similar except that the artifacts must exist or an error is reported.

  • GNAT Pro | GPRbuild
    Dec 13th, 2016

    New GPRname switch—ignore-predefined-units
    GPRname has a new switch --ignore-predefined-units which will not consider any predefined Ada unit (children of Ada, Interfaces and System packages) when scanning source files.

    GPRinstall support for separate ALI directory
    The new GPRinstall's --ali-subdir option can be used to install the ALI files into a specific directory.

  • GNAT Pro | GPRbuild
    Sep 5th, 2016

    New gprname switch—RTS=
    gprname has now a switch --RTS= like all other GPR tools, as it is necessary for targets that do not have a default runtime.

  • GNAT Pro | GPRbuild
    Sep 3rd, 2016

    GPRinstall support for separate debug symbol file
    The new GPRinstall's --side-debug option can be used to write debug symbols out of executables and libraries into a separate file. If the executable to be installed is named main, then the debug information is moved into the file main.debug and is removed from the executable.

    Performance improvement when building libraries
    When binding Stand-Alone Libraries, gprbuild no longer gets the time stamps of the sources and object files if they are already known, if the main project is not an aggregate project.

  • GNAT Pro | GPRbuild
    Jul 19th, 2016

    New switch—no-sal-binding
    A new switch --no-sal-binding is added to gprbuild. When this switch is used gprbuild will not rebind Stand-Alone Libraries, it will reuse the files created during a previous build of the SAL, and will fail if there are missing files.

    Jul 18th, 2016

    Interfaces in aggregate library projects
    Attribute Interfaces is now allowed in aggregate library projects.

  • GNAT Pro | GPRbuild
    Jul 5th, 2016

    gprls—closure
    A new switch --closure is added to gprls, to display the full paths of the sources in the closures of one or several mains.

  • GNAT Pro | GPRbuild
    Jun 22nd, 2016

    New builtin function Split
    A new builtin function Split is introduced. It takes two string parameters and returned a string list. Examples: Split ("-gnatf,-gnatv", ",") => ("-gnatf", "-gnatv") Split (external ("COMP_FLAGS", "-gnatf,-gnatv"), ",")

  • GNAT Pro | GPRbuild
    Jun 20th, 2016

    gprbuild verbosity
    gprbuild switch -v is now equivalent to switch -vl (low verbosity) instead of -vh. And invoking gprbuild with -v or -vl no longer outputs information about the inner behavior of gprbuild.

  • GNAT Pro | GPRbuild
    Jun 19th, 2016

    Build script
    A new gprbuild switch --build-script= is added, to create a shell script that would allow to repeat the same build with the same sources, provided that the temporary files created in the invocation of gprbuild are not deleted.

    Environment variable GPR_RUNTIME_PATH
    When the Ada runtime directory is specified with switch --RTS or attribute Runtime ("Ada") as a relative path, the path may be relative to the project directory of the main project, or if the environment variable GPR_RUNTIME_PATH is defined to the path specified by the value of this environment variable.

  • GNAT Pro | GPRbuild
    Jun 9th, 2016

    gprbuild default output
    The default output of gprbuild is now synthetic, without any abridged commands to invoke the compilers, binder or linker. Example: $ gprbuild prj.gpr Compile [Ada] main.adb Bind [gprbind] main.bexch [Ada] main.ali Link [link] main.adb

  • GNAT Pro | GPRbuild
    May 29th, 2016

    Setting the default verbosity
    It is now possible to control the default verbosity without to use switches -v or -q, with environment variable GPR_VERBOSITY. The possible values, case-insensitive, are "quiet", "default", "verbose", "verbose_high", "verbose_medium" and "verbose_low". Any other value is ignored.

  • GNAT Pro | GPRbuild
    May 26th, 2016

    Runtimes with multiple directories
    Runtimes with multiple directories for sources or object/libraries are now properly supported.

  • GNAT Pro | GPRbuild
    May 25th, 2016

    Runtime () as a relative path
    It is now possible to specify a runtime directory with the attribute Runtime as a relative path, in the main project. Example: for Runtime ("Ada") use "./rts"; The path is relative to the project directory of the main project.

    Errors with switches—restricted-to-languages=
    When gprbuild is invoked with switch --restricted-to-languages= and the configuration project file does not include attributes for languages that are not in the list of restricted languages, errors on the sources of these languages are inhibited.

  • GNAT Pro | GPRbuild
    Apr 13th, 2016

    Temporary config project with autoconfiguration
    The Project Manager now creates a temporary configuration project file when in auto-configuration. This file is deleted when the tool terminates. This allows several project-aware tools invocations to work in parallel with the same object directory.

  • GNAT Pro | GPRbuild
    Apr 5th, 2016

    New attribute Origin_Project
    A new project level attribute Origin_Project is defined. Its value is a single string and designates a project name. It may be used for various purposes by project aware tools.

  • GNAT Pro | GPRbuild
    Apr 1st, 2016

    New procedure Get_Closures
    A new procedure GPR.Util.Get_Closures is added. It allows to get the full paths of the sources in the Ada closures of one or several mains.

  • GNAT Pro | GPRbuild
    Mar 10th, 2016

    GPRbuild supports response files during compilation
    GPRbuild, when the language is configured appropriately and the compilation command line is long, will invoke the compiler with a response file. This will avoid problems on platforms where the maximum length of the command line or of the value of an environment variable is not very high.

    Jan 18th, 2016

    GPRslave can now be pinged
    Now GPRslave will respond to a ping command and returns some information (version, UTC time, hash) about the slave if running. This can be used by application for checking available slaves.

  • GNAT Pro | GPRbuild
    Jan 18th, 2016

    GPRbuild distributed environment consistency
    A new option (--hash) has been added in GPRbuild and GPRslave. The value specified can be used to ensure that the environment is consistent on both sides.

  • GNAT Pro | GPRbuild
    Dec 2nd, 2015

    New Library_Kind “static-pic”
    A new library kind "static-pic" is introduced. static-pic libraries are static libraries, but their code is compiled with the PIC option, if it exists.

    Incomplete Ada interface of SAL is now an error
    When the Ada interface of a Stand-Alone Library project is incomplete, gprbuild now reports an error instead of a warning.

  • GNAT Pro | GPRbuild
    Oct 31st, 2015

    GPRbuild now restrict symbols from a SAL
    GPRbuild now restricts the symbols exported out of a SAL. The exported symbols are those part of the SAL's interface as specified by the Library_Interface or Interfaces attributes.

    Improve usability of code compiled on other machine
    When Ada code that has been compiled on machine A for a specific runtime is used to build an executable on machine B for the same runtime, the build will now succeed in all cases, even though the path of the runtime on machine A is not the same as the path of the runtime on machine B.

  • GPRbuild
    Oct 14th, 2015

    Improve reproducibility of builds
    When gprbuild is used to build the same executable with the same project files and sources, with the same paths on two different but similar platforms, the executables will be the same and will have the same behavior. In particular, the elaboration orders of the Ada code will be the same.
