Ada is a very expressive and robust language in which the default for every programing construct is inherently safe. It was designed to allow programs to be engineered rather than crafted and that is why Ada is chosen for applications where failure would result in catastrophic losses in terms of human life, economic damage, or a major breach of security. To explore the new features in the latest generation of the language visit the official Ada-2012 website.
