Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2019 has been released!


Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2019, including Intel® Fortran Compiler 19.0, is now available from the Intel Registration Center. Release notes can be found here.

The Intel® Fortran Compiler supports all features from the Fortran 2008 standard. Additional features from the proposed draft Fortran 2018 standard added in the Intel® Fortran 19.0 release are noted below:

  • Coarray events
  • Intrinsic function coshape
  • Default accessibility for entities accessed from a module
  • Import Enhancements
  • All standard procedures in ISO_C_BINDING other than C_F_POINTER are now PURE 

Features from OpenMP*:

  • User-Defined Reductions from the OpenMP* 4.5 specifications are now supported:
    !$omp declare reduction(reduction-identifier: type-list : combiner) [initializer-clause]
  • The F2008 standard added the BLOCK/ENDBLOCK construct. It is now allowed to use this construct inside an OMP region.
  • ASSERT clause for !$OMP SIMD directive
    Directs the compiler to assert when the vectorization fails. Similar to deprecated !DIR$ SIMD ASSERT.

Please see the release notes for more details and additional new features.
