• Gnu Emacs Ada mode 7.3.beta released.

    From Stephen Leake@21:1/5 to All on Tue Jul 12 07:31:15 2022
    Gnu Emacs Ada mode 7.3.beta is now available in GNU ELPA devel for
    beta testing.

    ada-mode and wisi are now compatible with recent gnat versions. The
    grammar is updated to the proposed Ada 2022 version.

    Incremental parse is provided. It still has some bugs, so it is not
    enabled by default. To try it:

    (setq-default wisi-incremental-parse-enable t).

    Incremental parse often gets confused; to recover, use M-x
    wisi-reset-parser. That does a full parse of the entire buffer, which
    can be noticeably slow in large buffers.

    To access the beta version via Gnu ELPA, add the devel archive to package-archives:

    (add-to-list 'package-archives (cons "gnu-devel" "https://elpa.gnu.org/devel/"))

    Then M-x list-packages; the beta release shows as ada-mode version 7.3beta1.0.20220711.185004, wisi version 4.0beta1.0.20220711.185552.

    See the NEWS files in ~/.emacs.d/elpa/ada-mode-7.3beta* and
    wisi-4.0beta*, or at https://elpa.gnu.org/packages/ada-mode.html, for
    more details.

    Please report success and issues to the Emacs ada-mode mailing list https://lists.nongnu.org/mailman/listinfo/ada-mode-users.

    The required Ada code requires a manual compile step, after the normal list-packages installation:

    cd ~/.emacs.d/elpa/ada-mode-7.3beta*

    There's a bug in install.sh; it looks for WISI_DIR with the old
    version. Copy the equivalent code from build.sh to fix it.

    This requires AdaCore gnatcoll packages which you may not have
    installed; see ada-mode.info Installation for help in installing them.

    build.sh will take longer than in previous releases, up to several
    minutes; the ada-mode LR1 parse table is now too big to store in ELPA,
    so build.sh generates it.
