The Ada programming language as compiled by GCC now has support for 64-bit ARM (AArch64) architectures.

The Ada programming language that's common to this day among embedded and real-time systems now has support for compiling to 64-bit ARM by the GNU Compiler Collection.

For those interested in writing Ada code for AArch64, it's now possible with this commit. The code is queued up for GCC 4.10 but might also end up being within GCC 4.9.1, considering GCC 4.9 was released a few days ago.
