Fwrap v0.1.0

I am pleased to announce the first release of Fwrap v0.1.0, a utility for
wrapping Fortran code in C, Cython and Python.  Fwrap focuses on supporting the
features of Fortran 90/95, but will work with most well-behaved Fortran 77
code, too.

Fwrap is BSD licensed.

Fwrap is beta-level software; all public APIs and commandline options are
subject to change.

Features in the v0.1.0 release:

    * Fortran source parsing and automatic wrapper generation;

    * Top-level (non-module) Fortran subroutines and functions;

    * Supports all intrinsic types (integer, real, complex, logical &

    * Default and non-default intrinsic types properly wrapped;

    * Scalar and array arguments supported;

    * Supports assumed-shape, assumed-size, and explicit-shape array arguments;

    * Intent 'in', 'inout', 'out' and no intent arguments supported;

    * Automatic docstring generation for extension module and functions;

    * Wrappers are portable w.r.t. both Fortran and C compilers.

Upcoming features:

    * "Use" statement support;

    * Python & Cython callback support;

    * Kind-parameters in type specification;

    * Module-level data and parameters;

    * User-derived types.

See the README and documentation for requirements, compiler support, etc.
