I’m not a Fortran programmer so I’ve perhaps not as close an eye on this as other areas, however looking at the Fortran IDE FTranProjectBuilder release notes it seems there have been 17 updates in the last 12 months. FTranProjectBuilder is now up to version 1.15 with new features being added at a steady rate. Of note for scientists FTranProjectBuilder has support for two of the most common parallel processing libraries. If your program is coded for MPI using OpenMPI or OpenMP and you have them installed, you can use FTranProjectBuilder to run on multiple processors.

News for all you Fortran programmers out there.

I known there are a number of Fortran users so I thought I’d highlight this message
The Absoft Pro Fortran 2012 for Mac OS currently shipping is compatible with Mountain Lion. Absoft Pro Fortran 2012 Mac OS customers who purchased earlier than June 2012 who want to run on Mountain Lion will need to download the Service Pack v11.5.2 which can be done at no charge from the Absoft site: http://www.absoft.com/download/downloads.html
Pro Fortran versions prior to 2012 are not compatible with Mountain Lion and will require an upgrade.
I’m not a Fortran user myself but I know a lot of scientists swear by it for high performance code, so I thought I’d mention Nocturnal Aviation Software the creators of FTranProjectBuilder the only Mac-native Fortran development environment (IDE) it works with the gfortran, g95, ifort, Absoft Pro Fortran, NAG nagfor and PGI pgfortran compilers.
FTranProjectBuilder is for scientists, engineers and students. It's useful for large, complex projects, but makes even simple programs easy to manage. To speed up program development it has:
- Single window interface
- Editor, console and notes views
- Project wide search
- Execution input from console or file
- Execution timer
- Errors and search results organized by file in outline view
- Add files by drag and drop, or import an existing makefile
FTranProjectBuilder manages the dependencies, object and module files, program executable and a standard makefile for you. You spend your time working on your code. FTranprojectBuilder does the rest.
