AdaCore has released its GNAT Pro Ada development environment for the LynuxWorks LynxOS 5.0 operating system. This release lets GNAT Pro users develop applications for both LynxOS 4.x and 5.0, and also provides a smooth migration path from older versions of the operating system to LynxOS 5.0. GNAT Pro for LynxOS 5.0 is available for both Linux and Windows host platforms, and for both PowerPC and x86 embedded targets.
The release is compatible with the existing GNAT Pro 6.2.2 for LynxOS 4.x. GNAT Pro customers using this earlier LynxOS version can now take advantage of the many new features offered by LynxOS 5.0, including:
- Increased RAM support -- up to 2 GB,
- Symmetric Multiprocessing (SMP),
- ELF file format,
- New POSIX -- POSIX 1003.1-2003 PSE 53/54.
