LAPACK in Fortran 90 instead of Fortran 77?

I use the venerable LAPACK (v.3.4.0) for more advanced linear algebra tasks and have been wondering for some time why it still is in Fortran 77 rather than making use of the new features introduced by Fortran 90. I did find an interface in actual Fortran 90 (or indeed Fortran 95) on Netlib, but that is 12 years old, i.e., much older than the latest LAPACK release. Can someone enlighten me about the relations between these packages and let me know whether there is a "real, official" LAPACK in Fortran 90 that represents the code that is being continued to be improved and developed?
