GNAT Pro 7.2

The next major release of the GNAT Pro toolsuite will incorporate more than 120 new features, including Ada 2012 mode enabled by default, many new warnings and improved diagnostics, code generation optimizations, support for symbolic traceback in shared libraries, and improved cross Ada/C++ exception handling. GNAT Pro 7.2 will also introduce two new tools:

  • GNAT2XML, for generating XML files from Ada sources, which will help in writing Ada analysis tools quickly in any language
  • GNATdashboard, for quality assurance monitoring and history (see below)

GNAT Pro 7.2 will also provide enhancements to existing tools, including

  • A new version of GNATpp, providing improved Ada layout and greater flexibility
  • Support in the GPRbuild multipurpose builder for distributed builds, and better support for parallel builds

The GNAT Pro 7.2 toolsuite will be released during Q1 2014, and supported platforms will include the ARM architecture (bare board, GNU/Linux, VxWorks 6 and Android), x86 VxWorks 6 Cert, and Windows 8.
