Fortran Compiler News

fortran2The GNU Project just announced the availability of GCC 5.1.  There are various new GFortran features, including:

  • Availability of the intrinsic IEEE modules (ieee_features, ieee_exceptions and ieee_arithmetic) from Fortran 2003.
  • Support for implicit none (external, type) from Fortran 2015.

GFortran is still not completely Fortran 2003 compatible, however.

In Intel news, Intel Parallel Studio XE 2016 is now in beta (which includes v16 of the Intel Fortran Compiler).  The major new features are:

  • Submodules from Fortran 2008!
  • impure elemental from Fortran 2008.
  • “Further Interoperability with C” features from TS29113 (Fortran 2015 draft).

    Hi Jacob,

    do have tested gfortran 5.1? I still cannot… The bugs related to deferred size allocatable strings defined as derived type member have been fixed?

    My best regards,

    I haven’t tried it out yet. When I do, I’ll be sure and check to see if those bugs are fixed.
