WG5 and PL22.3 (J3) met in Markham, Ontario, Canada, 25-29 June 2012.
WG5 decided on the requirements for its proposed TS on further coarray features. They include a TEAM facility that will allow a subprogram developed without any TEAM syntax to be executed unchanged by a team, an EVENT facility, a simple set of collective subroutines, and futher intrinsic procedures for atomic memory operations. The parallel I/O facilities that were once part of the draft Fortran 2008 are not included. The overall size is comparable with that of the features that were removed from the draft Fortran 2008 in February 2008. For details, see N1930. The aim is to complete the TS by July 2014.
WG5 also decided that the next revision of the Fortran standard will consist of the incorporation of corrigenda, editorial improvements, and the two Technical Specifications, plus the removal of simple deficiencies in, and discrepancies between, existing facilities. The plan is to start work on this in 2014 and complete it by the end of 2016.
PL22.3 was active in processing interpretations and a new WG5 ballot is expected soon.
