• Added the strnum program to illustrate using internal file IO to convert numeric values to strings and vice-versa.
• Added a couple of items to the Humor page.

• Upgraded to the latest development version of Instiki which supports page renames and redirects. Renaming a page can be done on via the ‘Edit Page’ link. Redirecting “Old Page” to “New Page” is accomplished by placing the code [[!redirects Old Page]] at the top of “New Page” (and real pages trump redirects).—Jason Blevins

• I have implemented a couple of features to assist in sharing Fortran source code on the wiki. First, I have written a Fortran module for the Syntax Ruby library used on the wiki to perform syntax highlighting. Second, I have written a small Maruku extension to handle fenced code blocks of the kind used in Markdown Extra and Pandoc. This makes pasting code to the wiki much easier, as each line no longer needs to be indented. See the Code page for examples.—Jason Blevins

• After a brief hiatus, the Fortran Wiki is back online. It is now running on Instiki and sharing server resources and a database with the xbeta wiki.—Jason Blevins
