AdaBase 3.1 - includes Spatial data / Geographic object support

I had intended that release 3.1 of AdaBase be a quick improvement that would add three new native data types:
  1. Bit type (like bit flags)
  2. UTF8 encoded strings
  3. Spatial data types / OpenGIS Geometry

AdaBase - Thick database bindings for Ada

Hey guys, I know there are several options for Ada to interface with databases, but I wasn't happy with any of them for various reasons and thus created yet another option to scratch my itch. I was aiming at a consistent interface to which the various drivers adapt. With some care, the database backends should be interchangeable.

So far I've created drivers for MySQL and SQLite and the driver for PostgreSQL is next on my list. I'd like to eventually support others such as Firebird, MSSQL, Oracle, etc., but those will be very low priority for me over the next year. Contributions are welcome of course -- It's been released under the developer- and commercial-friendly ISC licence.
