Intel Parallel Studio XE 2017 has been released!

Intel Parallel Studio XE 2017, including Intel Fortran Compiler 17.0, is now available from the Intel Registration Center. Release notes can be found here.

Among the new F2008 features are:

  • TYPE(intrinsic-type)
  • Pointer initialization
  • Implied-shape PARAMETER arrays
  • Extend EXIT statement to all valid construct names
  • Support BIND(C) in internal procedures

There is also new support for OpenMP 4.5 features, an option to align the code for loops and more.

A significant change in this release is that the default for intrinsic assignment to allocatable arrays is now to do the automatic (re)allocation if necessary, as specified by the standard. In past releases you needed to specify the -assume realloc_lhs option to get this behavior. In some applications the additional checking may affect performance - you can revert to the previous behavior by specifying norealloc_lhs or the new option -nostandard-realloc-lhs.

Another change is to correct and make consistent how the compiler treats nonstandard conversions between numeric and LOGICAL types. Please see the release notes for more details.

Hi Steve,

is there a road map when MS Visual Studio 2017 and MS Build are supported by Intel Parallel Studio XE 2017 ?

PSXE 2017 Update 3 (May '17 timeframe) is targeted to add VS 2017 support (as mentioned here). This does not include msbuild which is not supported by Fortran projects.
