Hey there,

I have to use fortran now in one of my classes and well - I am of course 
missing proper integration in KDevelop :)

If you - or anyone else - would still be up for the job, we could start a 
language plugin. What we'll need first though is a lexer & parser... I found 
this interesting project:

Sadly it is Java stuff, yet with some work one could try to port their antlr 
grammars to produce C code and then use that in a KDevelop plugin. 
Alternatively one could port the grammar files to KDevelop-PG-Qt.
