Hi all,

I've just released SweetAda 0.10.

SweetAda is a lightweight development framework to create Ada systems on a wide range
of machines. Please refer to

Release notes       @
Downloads available @

This release comes with a huge cleanup of the whole system, with many changes in all areas. The build system seems pretty efficient and stable, with no redundant actions, and is able to accomodate a large set of configuration.

The profile agrees with Ravenscar, and all platforms tested run OK, albeit many of them in a very simple manner. Interrupt handling is for some CPUs still only a placeholder, but many of them are able to handle at least a simple timer in order to have a raw notion of time.

There is a Monitor module (very exemplary) to do user interaction and the Srecord module that could be used as a built-in tool to execute fragments of code. The Time module should provide basic capabilities in order to manipulate a datetime.

Many other changes, large cosmetic refinements and an improved documentation. Syntax changes to adhere Ada 2012/202x and some generics removed from I/O layers to simplify the code and gain speed.

With SweetAda 0.10, I provide also new toolchains based on GCC 11.3.0 (release-20220429), you can found them at SweetAda home or at SourceForge. QEMU emulators are bumped at 7.0.0 (release-20220504).

Unfortunately, I cannot longer provide OS X toolchains due to increasing difficulties in building the software (GCC and LLVM disagree on the syntax of some CPU instructions), and lack of time, sorry. But this shouldn't be a problem since SweetAda should be toolchain-agnostic.
