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.

G95 was primarily developed by Andy Vaught but development appears to have stopped as there were few updates to the project's blog since the middle of August 2010, and Andy Vaught has now moved to competing compiler vendor PathScale.[1] A stable version 0.93 was released in October 2012.[2] Gnu's GFortran, a part of GCC, has now bypassed G95 in terms of its Fortran 2008 implementation and in the speed of the generated code. G95 was far superior to the poorly maintained Gnu G77, the predecessor of GFortran.

In January 2003, GNU Fortran was forked from G95.[3]
