June 18, 2018: Update of the Toolbox and Windows Fortran Routines

On June 18, 2018, we released an update (Version 1.1: June 18, 2018) of the toolbox. The previous version of the toolbox could not be compiled with older versions of gfortran using our standard compiler settings. The present version of the toolbox is now downward compatible up to gfortran 4.9. Users who already installed Fortran on their system using our installation routines can simply download the new toolbox installation package from the Toolbox section of the website. Just choose your operating system, download the respective package and run the toolbox installation file. If you haven’t installed Fortran on your computer yet, the new toolbox will be included automatically in the installation routines, which you can download in the Compiler section.

On June 18, 2018 we also released an update (Version 1.1: June 18, 2018) of the Windows Fortran installation package. In this package we updated

  • cygwin to its latest stable version 2.10.0
  • gnuplot to its latest stable version 5.2.4
  • geany to its latest stable version 1.33

There is no urgent need to update your system. However, if you want to do so, go to the Compiler section and download the latest Windows installation package. IMPORTANT: Once you unpacked the installation package, first run the file uninstall_fortran.bat. This will remove the current Fortran release as well as any other additional software from your computer. Once your current Fortran package was removed, run the file install_fortran.bat and follow the standard installation instructions.
