Dear all,

I’m very pleased to announce that our paper summarizing recent developments by the Fortran community (see Fortran-lang community paper) has been accepted for publication by Computing in Science and Engineering.

A preprint can now be viewed freely on arXiv:

and the published version will be available here once finalized: The State of Fortran | IEEE Journals & Magazine | IEEE Xplore.

I would like to express my deepest thanks to all co-authors for their contributions, editing, support and patience over the last year:

@aradi, @certik, @milancurcic, @awvwgk, @interkosmos, @rgoswami, @scivision, @alozada, @vmagnin, @Arjen, @epagone, @ivanpribec, @everythingfunctional, @hsnyder, @urbanjost, @jeremie.vandenplas

I believe the final paper is an accurate and fair exposition of the features of modern Fortran and the many exciting developments ongoing in this community. I am also grateful to journal editors and the reviewers for all their feedback and guidance in producing this article.
