Description Tobias Burnus 2012-08-21 07:05:49 UTC
That's not a regression – but the manual has to be updated for the TS29113 changes before the 4.8 release – and marking it as regression.

Namely,
  http://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gfortran/Standards.html
  http://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gfortran/Interoperability-with-C.html
  http://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gfortran/TS-29113-status.html

Additionally, the F2003 & F2008 status should be updated.
  http://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gfortran/Fortran-2003-and-2008-status.html

And, we should consider to also link to the deferred-length string version of ISO Varying strings at 
http://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gfortran/Varying-Length-Character-Strings.html

And as always: Read through the whole document – and the internals document – and consider improvements of all kinds.
