Press Release

BRUSSELS, BELGIUM, May 12, 2014. Ada-Europe today announced the publication in extra formats of the 2012 version of the Ada programming language standard, after its formal approval by ISO/IEC JTC 1 in December 2012.

Since its standardization, the Ada 2012 standard has been available in HTML and Adobe Acrobat format (PDF), from the download sites [1] and [2]. More recently, the latest Ada language definition became also available as volume 8339 of Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science series [3], as a companion to the Ada 2012 Rationale, published by Springer as LNCS 8338.

Moreover, with a view to exploring new media platforms to further widen the availability of this important material, Ada-Europe has now produced a prototype eBook of the Ada 2012 Reference Manual, which can be downloaded from [1]. This eBook should be regarded as a draft concept, proposed for the scrutiny of the Ada community at large, for feedback on its perceived usefulness and suggestions for improvements. Returns on this subject should be addressed to Ada-Europe at
