News : Intel Fortran 18.0 (XE 2018)

26th September 2017 (Updated 16th October 2017)

The newly released Intel Fortran 18.0, which forms part of Intel Parallel Studio XE 2018, is now supported on all of Windows, Linux and macOS.

Two changes have been made to the Windows version of WiDE in the 11.0c update, to improve support for IVF 18.0:

  • The newly bundled Visual Studio 2015 Shell is now supported as a tools/libraries provider and debugger. As with previous bundled VS "Shell" versions, this differs in organisation to the standard VS2015 Community/Pro releases which were already supported by WiDE. The different VS2015 versions are now recognised automatically and the differing paths set up accordingly.
  • Invocation of the 32-bit compiler on 64-bit Windows has been reworked to avoid an unwelcome "remark" which the compiler otherwise generates on every compilation.

No changes are required to the existing Intel compatible versions of the Winteracter libraries or modules. Minor changes have been made to the documentation to reflect support for this compiler version.
