Version 2.39 Released!
Posted on Aug. 29, 2017
Approximatrix is happy to announce the release of Simply Fortran 2.39 for Microsoft Windows, Apple macOS, and GNU/Linux platforms. This release includes an upgraded compiler and addresses many user-reported issues with the developer environment.
The Fortran compiler has been upgraded to GNU Fortran 7.2 on Windows and macOS platforms. The new compiler represents the most recent, official GNU Fortran release. The development environments search functionality in the toolbar has been fixed on all platforms. Intermittent crashes of Simply Fortran due to use of the quick search bar have been eliminated. The C source code indexing routine now implements a time limit, necessary due to how the parser operates, to avoid development environment indexing lockups when processing very large C source code files. The development environment will now allow the "Build and Run Current File..." option to be enable whenever only one Fortran file is visible to the user (as opposed to requiring keyboard focus within that Fortran file).
The Linux and macOS distributions no longer "lose" tabs when loading projects with saved tab positions after closing initially opened files. The "Open Console" option for Toolbox items on Linux should now reliably work properly on all Linux distributions.
