Chart of Fortran 2008 Features supported by GNU Fortran
See also Fortran 2003 implementation status
See also TS 29113: Technical Specification on Further Interoperability with C
When the question which Fortran 2003 features are implemented in which compiler, came up in comp.lang.fortran, the idea was born to create a chart of the features supported by the different compilers. The result was a list in Fortran Forum (see Fortran2003Status). With Fortran 2008 on the horizon, the list is being updated for Fortran 2008.
The listed items follow the sections in the following writeup:

Implemented 2008 feature in GNU Fortran compiler
Submodules 
No, PR52846 
Coarrays 
Partial (since 4.6, April 2010: incomplete, for one image only)

Unimplemented features  based on the list in the "Introduction" of the F2008 standard
There is a large overlap with the No items in the table above.
 Module enhancements: Submodules provide additional structuring facilities for modules.
 Parallel execution: Coarrays
 The DO CONCURRENT construct provides a means for the program to specify that individual loop iterations have no interdependencies.
 The maximum rank has been increased to 15.
 An allocatable component can be of recursive type.
 Subscripts and nested implieddo limits inside a dataimplieddo can be any constant expression instead of being limited to combinations of constants, implieddo variables, and intrinsic operations.
 A FORALL index variable can have its type and kind explicitly declared within the construct.
 A structure constructor can omit the value for an allocatable component.
 SOURCE= in an ALLOCATE statement can give an array variable the bounds as well as the value of an expression.
 The real and imaginary parts of a complex entity can be accessed independently with a componentlike syntax.
 Intrinsic assignment to an allocatable polymorphic variable is allowed.
 A pointer function reference can denote a variable in any variable definition context.
 Some restrictions on the use of dummy arguments in elemental subprograms have been removed.
 The new intrinsic function FINDLOC searches an array for a value.
 The intrinsic functions LGE, LGT, LLE, and LLT can have arguments of ASCII kind.
 A BACK= argument has been added to the intrinsic functions MAXLOC and MINLOC.
 ALLOCATABLE and POINTER attributes are used in generic resolution.
 Procedureness of a dummy argument is used in generic resolution.
