Fortran 2008

    It looks like Fortran 2008 is going through its final steps of standardization. What does this mean for scientific computing? Since people still use Fortran 90 despite new revisions up to 2003, will this go under the radar, or will this be a new and useful programming language with multiple new features?

    I think Fortran 2008 (like 2003) will not be a breakthrough like Fortran 90 but new features will excite the community and keep them busy for a while.
