Pascal hasn't really fallen into disuse. I don't know where you heard this from, but there are still people who use Pascal for its original purpose (i.e.: educational purposes).

Ada itself originated as a US DoD standard in 1977 & has been updated in 2005, so it's still current. The only problem is that I don't know if any industry outside of the military uses it.

The Railway industry uses it extensively for safety-critical products.

So ADA is still in use today. Does the railway industry use GNAT.
