ABSTRACT

"Introducing Ada 9X" is a product of the Ada 9X Project, dated Feb 1993.
It was written by John Barnes.  From the first chapter:

"This document provides a description of the main features of Ada 9X
and the rationale for the changes to Ada 83.  It follows the inspiration
of the rationale for Ada 83 by blending exposition with explanation.

"Chapter 2 highlights the main changes -- primarily the four key areas
outlined in Section 1.3.  The intent is to provide a technically
oriented management overview illustrating, with examples, the prime
benefits of Ada 9X with respect to Ada 83.

"By contrast, Chapter 3 provides an overview of the whole language in a
discursive style and introduces new terminology where appropriate.  For
the most part, this overview is equally applicable to both Ada 83 and to
Ada 9X.  Areas of enhanced functionality in Ada 9X are indicated thus
illustrating where change has occurred.

"Finally, Chapter 4 summarizes the incompatibilities thereby giving
guidance to existing Ada 83 programmers in order to smooth their
transition to Ada 9X."
