  • sourceryinstitute/OpenCoarrays#378 mpirun changed to mpiexec and mpif90 changed to mpifort, consistent with MPI standard recommendations
  • sourceryinstitute/OpenCoarrays#398 fix some erroneous internal library calls when exceptions are encountered
  • sourceryinstitute/OpenCoarrays#399 fix allocation of allocatable components of coarray derived types

  • sourceryinstitute/OpenCoarrays#404 fix issue where was ignoring user specified -m/--with-cmake CMake location
  • sourceryinstitute/OpenCoarrays#406 use secure https/encrypted sources for fetching and installing prerequisites to help mitigate the possibility of a man-in-the-middle (MITM) attack
  • sourceryinstitute/OpenCoarrays#408 switch to downloading the gzipped GCC archive rather than the bz2 because gzip is more common/portable and because bz2 compressed GCC archives seem to have disappeared for some recent releases on GCC mirrors
