Currently, Fortran compilers vary widely in their support of Fortran 2003 and Fortran 2008. This limits portability. The Fortran committees have responded by proposing that only very modest features be added for Fortran 1x. The work list is now open for suggestions. Also, the Fortran committees have written an annex for TS 24772, "Guidance to Avoiding Vulnerabilities in Programming Languages through Language Selection and Use". This is intended to be useful as a starting point for development of coding standards. I'll provide an update on Fortran standards activities and seek input from Fortran programmers.

All materials mentioned in Dan's talk can be downloaded here.
