What we’ve been up to...

It’s been a while since I’ve added a page to my blog, but that doesn’t mean that nothing has been going on here at Nocturnal Aviation Software Central. 

The big news is that we have been working hard on FTranProjectBuilder 2.0. The update is now in Beta testing and should be out for general release sometime this summer. Version 2 includes a new look, updated for Yosemite+, and more features designed to enhance your productivity programming modern Fortran on your Mac.

Autocomplete is being enhanced to include scope appropriate procedures and variables. FTranProjectBuilder will also present suggestions for your derived types. 

You’ll also be able to select a variable, procedure, derived type or module name and pop up information about the symbol. For a variable, the popup will show the type, declared value and where it is declared. For modules, you’ll see what variables and procedures it defines. 


If you select a Fortran intrinsic procedure, you’ll be able to pop up its Fortran specification. This is great for when you can’t remember, say, the order of the arguments in ATAN2 or SIGN.


So look forward to this major new update in the coming months. FTranProjectBuilder 2 will be a free upgrade to those who already have a license. So there’s no reason to wait for the new one! However, the minimum OS requirement will be increased to 10.7, so if you are on 10.6 still, get it before the update.
