Fwrap 0.1.1 is out; it supports a subset of Fortran 95/2003, biggest
limitation being modules not being present.
Since then there's been quite a few unreleased improvements (like a much
better and more flexible build based on waf instead of distutils).
I'm currently working on module support. Or, was ... I've put in a week
this month, but then some simulation results grabbed my attention and I
got derailed. Finishing up module support and making an Fwrap 0.2
release is #2 on my "stack" of things to work on, and once I get around
to it I expect it to take about a week. So I think it will happen :-)
If you (or anyone else) want to get involved and put in a day or two to
help with polishing (command line interface, writing tests,
documentation...) just email me.
