Future

2020 Planned Revision to Ada 2012
Some new features, possibly including additional forms of contracts and parallel execution features. An announcement requesting enhancement requests from the Ada Community can be found . Modest new features already completed can be found in the draft Ada Standard (see Ada 202x pages).

(A Technical Corrigendum provides bug fixes to a standard.)

ISO/IEC JTC 1 SC 22 Working Group 9 (the group responsible for Ada Standards) is now using a more frequent schedule of updates, as in the modern world waiting 10 years for a major update is not acceptable. The plan is to produce some sort of (smaller) update to Ada roughly every three years, as well as using Technical Specifications to provide preview of major new proposals.
