F 20 project started at PGI / Nvidia as a new Fortran frontend designed to work with LLVM. The aim of the project is to create a modern Fortran frontend (Fortran standard) in modern C . In April of this year, it was accepted as an LLVM project (https://lists.llvm.org/pipermail/llvm-dev/ – April / . html).
