Fortran developers have long been able to accelerate their programs using CUDA Fortran or OpenACC.

I heard about this in SC18. Glad that it has finally become reality! super useful. looking forward to full implementation without the limitations mentioned in the blog post.

When is it scheduled for release?

We appreciate your interest! We are continuing to work on removing limitations, so be sure to keep an eye out for upcoming releases with improvements.
