External Tools Framework
External Tools Preference Page
Preference pages for tools contributed using the ETFw extension now appear under the External Tools category.
In-situ Partial Order (ISP) Analysis
Provides dynamic verification for MPI applications in order to detect deadlocks, assertion violation, and memory leaks. Offers rigorous coverage guarantees, including rigorous coverage of communication/synchronization behaviors, and determines relevant interleavings, replaying them as necessary. Supports MPICH2, Open MPI, Microsoft MPI, MVAPICH, and IBM MPI.
ISP actions can be accessed from the toolbar.
ISP Analyzer View
This view is used to reports program errors, and runtime statistics, and provides debug-style source code stepping of interleavings.
ISP Preference Page
ISP preferences can be configured from the ISP preference page.
Parallel Debug View Toolbar
The Parallel Debug view toolbar has been updated to distinguish it from the Debug view toolbar.
Parallel Runtime Perspective
The Parallel Runtime perspective (previously PTP Runtime) has been updated to a new layout that includes a new jobs view, console view and properties view.
Jobs List View
The Jobs view has been replaced with a Jobs List view which shows jobs as a linear list. This is designed to enhance the scalability of the UI.
A console view has now been provided as a main Parallel Runtime view. This view shows combined output from all processes in a parallel job.
Photran 5.0 is the first official release of Photran as an Eclipse Foundation project.
Support for Fortran 2003
Photran now supports Fortran 2003 features.
The following new refactorings have been provided:
- Extract Procedure
- Extract Local Variable
- Make Private Entity Public
- Encapsulate Variable
- Add ONLY Clause to USE Statement
- Minimize ONLY List
- Make COMMON Variable Names Consistent
- Unchecked Loop Interchange
- Change Keyword Case
- Multiple-file Introduce IMPLICIT NONE, Replace Obsolete Operators, and Change Keyword Case
Fortran Language-Specific Search
Photran now provides searching on Fortran language features.
Additional New Project Wizards
New project wizards have been provided.
Source File Templates
New source templates are available.
Fortran Project Nature and Conversion Wizard
Photran projects now have a fortran nature, and projects can be converted with a conversion wizard
Support for SLURM
A new resource manager supporting the SLURM resource management system is now available.
Preliminary Support for PBS
A new resource manager for PBS has been included in the release. Currently this resource manager only allows monitoring of PBS jobs.
Service Provider Configuration Widget
A widget is available for editing service configurations. Service providers can supply a UI for modifying configuration information. This is automatically displayed in the widget when the service provider is selected for editing.
Service Configuration Preferences Page
Service configurations can now be added/removed/edited using the service configurations preference page.
Service Configuration Project Properties Page
Service configurations for a project can be accessed from the project properties.
Service Configuration View
There is now a view available for displaying service configurations.
Import/Export Service Configurations
Wizards are available for importing and exporting service configurations.
