The May meeting of WG5 and J3 was mostly spent in J3 mode, correcting glitches in the draft Fortran 2008 standard and making editorial improvements. WG5 agreed to two very small technical changes:
Because of the number of changes made to the draft, it was decided that one more J3 meeting should be devoted to polishing it. Since the amount of editorial corrections after the August meeting should be less, it is anticipated that the overall delay to the standard should be about 2 months rather than 3.
Some progress was made with the Technical Report on Further Interoperability, but a revised draft is not available yet, since priority has been given to Fortran 2008. The schedule for constructing a draft TR for submission to SC22 was altered to April 2010.
Two minor changes were noticed in the edits of Corrigendum 4, which is currently out for vote, see the US TAG's vote, N1783. It is hoped that other countries will agree with these changes and vote in the same way. This should allow the corrigendum to be corrected without a further vote before publication.
Following the February meeting of J3, the following minor editorial changes were made to the draft Corrigendum 4:
The corrigendum was sent to SC22 today in the form of N1773 and N1774. N1775 is final version of the copy with references to page and line numbers and to interpretation identifiers.
