Currently, gfortran does not support the NEW_LINE intrinsic.
Expected: It is supported.

Testcase:
-------------
program newline
  implicit none
  WRITE(*,'(A)') 'This is record 1.'//NEW_LINE('A')//'This is record 2.'
end program newline
-------------

>From Fortran 2003 standard:

13.7.85 NEW LINE (A)
 Description. Returns a newline character.
 Class. Inquiry function.
 Argument. A shall be of type character. It may be a scalar or an array.
 Result Characteristics. Character scalar of length one with the same kind type
parameter as A.
 Result Value.
   Case (i): If A is of the default character type and the character in
position of the ASCII collating sequence is representable in the default
character set, then the result is ACHAR(10).
   Case (ii): If A is of the ASCII character type or the ISO 10646 character
type, then the result is CHAR(10,KIND(A)).
   Case (iii): Otherwise, the result is a processor-dependent character that
represents a new line in output to files connected for formatted stream output
if there is such a character.
   Case (iv): Otherwise, the result is the blank character.
