New Release of FTN95 Version 8.70

Cyber Monday couldn’t be better after receiving an email advising that Silverfrost Limited released their latest version of FTN95 and I’m excited about the updates in this version. A complete list of the changes and bug fixes are listed on the Silverfrost Fortran FTN95 Revision History page.

Fortran 2003 and Fortran 2008 features have been added as well as a number of ClearWin+ GUI updates and numerous bug fixes. I use Winteracter for GUI applications, but ClearWin+ is more than adequate for many Fortran applications.

NOTE: You can download a FREE personal edition of FTN95 to test it for yourself. You will see a “nuisance” banner before your application starts, but it’s a small price to pay for a FREE and powerful IDE.

PLATO is a great Fortran IDE and makes it easy to create console based, conventional Windows, and Microsoft .NET applications. Simdem is part of the Silverfrost download and provides the ability to create a wide range of graphs and plots from Fortran! The features of the latest FTN95 release as listed on the Silverfrost FTN95: Fortran for Windows page include:

  • Full ANSI Fortran 95 compiler
  • Full ANSI Fortran 77 compiler (Fortran 77 is part of the Fortran 95 standard)
  • 32- and 64-bit compilers
  • Plato IDE
  • Build Windows GUI applications in Fortran using ClearWin+
  • Visual Studio integration*
  • CHECKMATE technology
  • Microsoft .NET Support
  • Fast Compilation

If you already have a licensed copy of FTN95, you should receive an email from Silverfrost Limited too. The following series of window snips shows each window as the installation progresses.
