|We are pleased to announce the release of FTN95 version 8.00. This is available for download now to supported users.
- FTN95 can now generate 64 bit executables and DLLs. The compiler can produce 32- or 64-bit code. There are some restrictions in 64-bit mode that will be addressed in future releases. The most significant is that there is no 64-bit check mode at present. The 64-bit release notes are here: http://www.silverfrost.com/58/ftn95/ftn95_fortran_95_for_windows.aspx
- The display resulting from the FTN95 command line option /CONFIG has been simplified and now only edits the global FTN95 configuration file. Use a new option /CFG to edit the local FTN95 configuration file
- ClearWin+: A new function called GlobalMemoryStatus@ has been added to the library. This provides easy access to the Windows API function GlobalMemoryStatusEx.
- ClearWin+ now makes use of the "DPI awareness" features first available with Windows 8.1. This means that, where possible, ClearWin+ will take advantage of the Windows API features designed to handle high DPI display settings which otherwise can lead to clipped text and blurry images.
