Simply Fortran Version 3.2 Now Available
Posted on Feb. 26, 2019
Approximatrix is happy to announce the release of Simply Fortran 3.2 for Windows, macOS, and GNU/Linux. This latest version introduces additional improvements to the development environment as well as bug fixes and stability improvements. Simply Fortran will now notify users if a file open in an editor has changed on disk, allowing the file to be reloaded rather than working with an older version. The universal quick search box in the toolbar will suggest moving to a line number in the current editor tab if a number is entered into the box. The autocomplete feature in editors will now attempt to match the case of the letters already typed by the user rather than using the internally defined case of the completion strings. Aplot functions, subroutines, and constants should now be included in autocomplete suggestions. The Project Outline menu now includes convenience options for expanding/collapsing folders, moving items up the outline tree, and renaming items. Furthermore, renamed files will also be appropriately renamed on disk, and version control will be updated if necessary.
Additional bug fixes specific to macOS have been introduced. Shared library default projects have been updated to generate files with the dylib extension. Import library creation, unsupported by Apple's linker, has been disabled entirely. File selectors and message popups in macOS now properly return focus to the Simply Fortran parent window. Error messages caused by launching programs on macOS that appears on select systems have been eliminated through using a different launch mechanism.
