Simply Fortran 3.21 Released!

Posted on Oct. 13, 2021

Approximatrix is happy to announce the availability of Simply Fortran version 3.21 for all supported platforms. The latest release introduces numerous bug fixes and feature additions.

On modern releases of supported operating systems, Simply Fortran can now open a terminal embedded within the development environment as a tab. In the View menu, the Open New Terminal option will open a command prompt or shell in a tab. This new feature requires an up-to-date version of Windows 10 or macOS, and it is supported on all Linux distributions.

The Git branch menu in the status bar now includes Git operations for simpler access. Memory model operations have been removed on macOS M1 builds as the compiler does not yet support this option correctly. Loss of precision as a floating point exception option has been removed as it has proved exceptionally problematic in programs using default Fortran output statements.

Packages for Raspbian are now built on Raspbian 10 (buster), which will cause compatibility issues with older Raspbian releases.

The user interface toolkit libraries on macOS have been updated in an attempt to mitigate drawing issues and possible crashes on macOS 11.6 and higher for Intel CPUs.

The latest releases are available on the Download page.
