version 5.0 will be available in mid-December of this year bundled with the high performance IBM XL Fortran Advanced Edition compiler Version 8.1 for Mac OS X. The IMSL Fortran Library is the gold standard mathematical and statistical library for Fortran programmers developing high performance computing applications, which saves development time by eliminating the need to write code from scratch. The bundled developer tools will be available to commercial customers for $1700. Government licenses start at $1300 while academic licenses start at $800.
