Tallahassee, Florida – Nocturnal Aviation Software is proud to announce its 20% off Back-to-School special on FTranProjectBuilder, the only Mac-native Fortran development environment (IDE) and project manager, designed to speed up and simplify writing, editing and running Fortran programs. With FtranProjectBuilder, programmers can write simple or complex programs and compile with any Mac Fortran compiler without resorting to the command line or cluttered cross-platform development tools.

Created for scientists, engineers and students who want to spend their time solving problems, not playing with the system, FTranProjectBuilder’s single window interface makes it easy to edit and manage any number of project files, build executables with a single click, and run within the application’s own console view. A handy built-in lab notebook lets the programmer keep track of progress and results. Switching between code, output and notes is quick and easy. FTranProjectBuilder avoids the clutter found in cross-platform IDEs and, unlike other development tools, is installed by Mac-standard drag-and-drop to the Applications folder.

FTranProjectBuilder has a built-in Fortran code editor with productivity enhancing features like templates, syntax coloring and automatic comment formatting, plus Fortran-specific features not found in other editors. It provides project-wide search for text and program units. Compiler errors are presented in an outline view organized by file. One click and an error is ready to edit. Programs can use terminal or file input. Most importantly, FTranProjectBuilder automatically handles Fortran module dependencies, making compilation an easy, one-click operation.

Version 1.10 adds many features to make Fortran programming even easier:

* Use them to quickly access commonly edited files.

2. More powerful search capabilities.
* Easily jump directly to any program unit in any file with a single click.

3. Notifications.
* For long-running programs, FTranProjectBuilder can now send customizable notifications by email, through Growl, or though Mountain Lion’s new Notification Center when a program is finished running.

4. Full Screen Mode.
* Available in OS X 10.7+ and makes the most of smaller screens.

Designed to work with all the Mac Fortran compilers: gfortran, Intel ifort, Absoft Pro Fortran, PGI pgfortran, and g95 (not included), FTranProjectBuilder scans the programmer’s Mac for installed compilers and presents them in an easy to use pull-down menu. A different compiler can be used for each project, or quickly switched to compare performance in a specific project.

FTranProjectBuilder is signed with Nocturnal Aviation Software’s Apple Developer ID, and is compatible with OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion’s Gatekeeper.

Pricing and Availability:
FTranProjectBuilder is available now for purchase or for a free 30 day trial. It runs on Macs with an Intel processor, Mac OS X 10.6 , including 10.8 Mountain Lion, and at least one installed Fortran compiler. Licenses are regularly available for $79 (USD) for commercial and government users, $59 for academic researchers and $29 for students. The 20% off all licenses special is valid until Sept. 21, 2012.
