gnat-4.6 is the default compiler for Debian 7 "Wheezy" and all Ada
packages must be compiled with gnat-4.6. This implies that gnat-4.6
will be supported for as long as Wheezy is, i.e. until one year after
the release of Wheezy's successor.
I will start work on gnat-4.7 in a few months. In fact, it is possible
that I skip gnat-4.7 completely and work on gnat-4.8 for the next stable
release; I have not reached a decision yet.
