SAN DIEGO and CHELTENHAM, England, September 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Ada development and compilation system enhanced for Microsoft Windows 7

Atego™, the leading independent supplier of industrial-grade, collaborative development tools for engineering complex, mission- and safety-critical architectures, systems, software and hardware, has launched Aonix ObjectAda® 8.5 for Windows with new support for Microsoft Windows® 7 systems.

The new release is based on the latest build tools and libraries from the Microsoft Windows SDK 7.1 and Visual Studio 2010 SP1 and provides a new streamlined, modernized installer based on the Microsoft Windows Installer.  Advancements to the Aonix ObjectAda debugger, Integrated Development Environment (IDE), and AonixADT support debugging of Ada code in DLLs and allow the debugger to attach to running processes. Aonix ObjectAda 8.5 includes improved usability in the documentation and online help for Windows 7.  Also, the product supplies the first implementation of AonixADT on Windows that supports the latest version of Eclipse - a multi-language software development environment comprising an open-source (IDE) and an extensible plug-in system.

"Aonix ObjectAda for Windows is one of the most popular Ada environments of all time and is used by the majority of Atego's ObjectAda customers for development of large-scale mission-critical applications. This release strengthens Atego's leadership position in Ada development tools for the Windows platform," stated Hedley Apperly, Atego's Vice-President of Product & Marketing.
