New WG5 web site and Fortran 2020 feature survey!

Black Belt Retired Employee

For many years, the "web home" of ISO/IEC JTC1/SC22/WG5 (the international Fortran standards committee, or WG5 for short) has been graciously hosted by NAG. I am pleased to announce that WG5 now has its own web site: The site is served over https and is "mobile friendly".

The WG5 web site is where you'll find news about what's happening with the Fortran standard, and links to all WG5 documents. Information on current and past standards is also available there.

On the home page you will see a link to a survey, requesting opinions on and suggestions for features that you would like to see in the next Fortran standard, tentatively titled Fortran 2020. If you want to help shape the future of Fortran, please take a few minutes and fill out the survey. While the survey will remain open through January 2018, we will start analyzing responses at the October J3 meeting. Also, the list of features the survey asks you to rank may be amended based on suggestions received.

I welcome all comments on the web site, and especially if you discover any problems. Not yet done are the email list indexes and news older than 2016.
