Adabindx -- an Ada-binding to the X Window System and *tif

To use Ada with my favourite operating system Linux I wrote a binding from Ada to the X window system. This is a collection of Ada sources which enables a program written in Ada to use the X window (and OSF/Motif ® or lesstif, if available) routines.
The binding is currently used in student projects in cooperation with Dr. Peter Hermann (Peter Hermann's Home Page), see Adapilot Home Page.

Current release:

Version 0.7.2 (stable): adabindx-0.7.2.tar.gz (a gzipped tar archive, 296kB) or adabindx-0.7.2.tar.bz2 (tar archive zipped with bzip2, 213kB).
See CHANGES-File for the changes compared to the previous release.

Previous release:

Version 0.7.1 (stable): adabindx-0.7.1.tar.gz (a gzipped tar archive, 264kB) or adabindx-0.7.1.tar.bz2 (tar archive zipped with bzip2, 194kB).
IMPORTANT: Adabindx is now under a modified GNU General Public Licence!
NEW: patch (patch-0.7.1-0.7.1a) that adds some types and procedures provided by Joerg Schäfer and Vadim Godunko. Many thanks to them. Version changed to 0.7.1a.
NOTE: to patch the sources go to your adabindx-directory (e.g. $HOME/adabindx-0.7.1) and there type
shell-prompt$ patch < path-to-patch/patch-0.7.1-0.7.1a
and then
shell-prompt$ make
which should recompile the changed files and those depending on them.
