Strange  - I can't find it. And Apple-Mail has a very reliable search
function - unlike the competition spotlight actually works.

That is strange as it is one of the three the offical releases of GNAT:
GNAT GPL (the free beer version), GNAT GAP (the accademic version) and
GNAT PRO (the fully supported version).

Beginners should consider GNAT GPL - gnat-gcc in MacPorts is more for
advaned users. Also GNAT GPL 2009 now comes with an 64 bit compiler.
That is pretty cool.

There is only one version if GNAT for MacPorts so there is nothing to
update. I am working on the 4.4 version but project manager can't create
library yet - and I won't commit until that works. So why update if
there is nothing to update to?
