G95 is a free, portable, open source Fortran 95 compiler. It implements the Fortran 95 standard, part of the Fortran 2003 standard, as well as some old and new extensions including proposed features for the Fortran 2008 standard like Co-array Fortran. When invoked with the -std=F source code is limited to the F programming language subset.
As of 2010-12-29, the project appears to be at a stable release point, with no further modifications mentioned on the site with dates later than 2008. The website lists a number of major and minor software packages (over 210) that have been ported to G95.
G95 was primarily developed by Andy Vaught but development appears to have stopped temporarily as there were no updates to the project's blog since the middle of August 2010 and Andy Vaught has now moved to competing compiler vendor PathScale. However, development appears to have resumed with version 0.93 as of October 2012.
In 2003, what is now gfortran, the GNU Fortran compiler, forked from G95.
