*** General Changes ***
paulson@3715
     9
wenzelm@4174
    10
* hierachically structured name spaces (for consts, types, axms, thms
wenzelm@3943
    11
etc.); new lexical class 'longid' (e.g. Foo.bar.x) may render much of
wenzelm@4108
    12
old input syntactically incorrect (e.g. "%x.x"); COMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@4108
    13
isatool fixdots ensures space after dots (e.g. "%x. x"); set
wenzelm@4174
    14
long_names for fully qualified output names; NOTE: ML programs
wenzelm@4174
    15
(special tactics, packages etc.) referring to internal names may have
wenzelm@4174
    16
to be adapted to cope with fully qualified names; in case of severe
wenzelm@4174
    17
backward campatibility problems try setting 'global_names' at compile
wenzelm@4174
    18
time to have enrything declared within a flat name space; one may also
wenzelm@4174
    19
fine tune name declarations in theories via the 'global' and 'local'
wenzelm@4174
    20
section;
wenzelm@4108
    21
wenzelm@4108
    22
* reimplemented the implicit simpset and claset using the new anytype
wenzelm@4108
    23
data filed in signatures; references simpset:simpset ref etc. are
wenzelm@4108
    24
replaced by functions simpset:unit->simpset and
wenzelm@4108
    25
simpset_ref:unit->simpset ref; COMPATIBILITY: use isatool fixclasimp
wenzelm@4108
    26
to patch your ML files accordingly;
paulson@3856
    27
wenzelm@3857
    28
* HTML output now includes theory graph data for display with Java
wenzelm@3857
    29
applet or isatool browser; data generated automatically via isatool
wenzelm@3901
    30
usedir (see -i option, ISABELLE_USEDIR_OPTIONS);
wenzelm@3857
    31
paulson@3856
    32
* defs may now be conditional; improved rewrite_goals_tac to handle
paulson@3856
    33
conditional equations;
paulson@3856
    34
wenzelm@4174
    35
* defs now admits additional type arguments, using TYPE('a) syntax;
wenzelm@4174
    36
wenzelm@3901
    37
* theory aliases via merge (e.g. M=A+B+C) no longer supported, always
wenzelm@3901
    38
creates a new theory node; implicit merge of thms' signatures is
wenzelm@4112
    39
restricted to 'trivial' ones; COMPATIBILITY: one may have to use
wenzelm@3901
    40
transfer:theory->thm->thm in (rare) cases;
wenzelm@3901
    41
wenzelm@3968
    42
* improved handling of draft signatures / theories; draft thms (and
wenzelm@3968
    43
ctyps, cterms) are automatically promoted to real ones;
wenzelm@3968
    44
wenzelm@3901
    45
* slightly changed interfaces for oracles: admit many per theory, named
wenzelm@3901
    46
(e.g. oracle foo = mlfun), additional name argument for invoke_oracle;
wenzelm@3901
    47
wenzelm@3901
    48
* print_goals: optional output of const types (set show_consts and
wenzelm@3901
    49
show_types);
wenzelm@3851
    50
wenzelm@3744
    51
* improved output of warnings (###) / errors (***);
wenzelm@3697
    52
paulson@4178
    53
* subgoal_tac displays a warning if the new subgoal has type variables;
paulson@4178
    54
paulson@3715
    55
* removed old README and Makefiles;
wenzelm@3697
    56
paulson@3856
    57
* replaced print_goals_ref hook by print_current_goals_fn and result_error_fn;
wenzelm@3670
    58
paulson@3715
    59
* removed obsolete init_pps and init_database;
paulson@3715
    60
paulson@3715
    61
* deleted the obsolete tactical STATE, which was declared by
paulson@3715
    62
    fun STATE tacfun st = tacfun st st;
paulson@3715
    63
paulson@3715
    64
paulson@3715
    65
*** Classical Reasoner ***
paulson@3715
    66
wenzelm@3744
    67
* Clarify_tac, clarify_tac, clarify_step_tac, Clarify_step_tac: new
wenzelm@3744
    68
tactics that use classical reasoning to simplify a subgoal without
wenzelm@3744
    69
splitting it into several subgoals;
paulson@3715
    70
paulson@3719
    71
* Safe_tac: like safe_tac but uses the default claset;
paulson@3719
    72
paulson@3715
    73
paulson@3715
    74
*** Simplifier ***
paulson@3715
    75
paulson@3715
    76
* added simplification meta rules:
paulson@3715
    77
    (asm_)(full_)simplify: simpset -> thm -> thm;
paulson@3715
    78
paulson@3715
    79
* simplifier.ML no longer part of Pure -- has to be loaded by object
paulson@3715
    80
logics (again);
paulson@3715
    81
paulson@3715
    82
* added prems argument to simplification procedures;
paulson@3715
    83
paulson@3715
    84
paulson@3715
    85
*** Syntax ***
paulson@3715
    86
wenzelm@4174
    87
* TYPE('a) syntax for type reflection terms;
wenzelm@4174
    88
wenzelm@3985
    89
* no longer handles consts with name "" -- declare as 'syntax' instead;
paulson@3856
    90
paulson@3856
    91
* pretty printer: changed order of mixfix annotation preference (again!);
wenzelm@3846
    92
paulson@3715
    93
* Pure: fixed idt/idts vs. pttrn/pttrns syntactic categories;
paulson@3715
    94
paulson@3715
    95
paulson@3715
    96
*** HOL ***
paulson@3715
    97
oheimb@4207
    98
* HOL: there is a new splitter `split_asm_tac' that can be used e.g. 
oheimb@4189
    99
  with `addloop' of the simplifier to faciliate case splitting in premises.
oheimb@4189
   100
nipkow@4035
   101
* HOL/TLA: Stephan Merz's formalization of Lamport's Temporal Logic of Actions;
wenzelm@3985
   102
wenzelm@3985
   103
* HOL/Auth: new protocol proofs including some for the Internet
nipkow@4035
   104
  protocol TLS;
wenzelm@3985
   105
wenzelm@4125
   106
* HOL/Map: new theory of `maps' a la VDM;
nipkow@3982
   107
nipkow@3930
   108
* HOL/simplifier: added infix function `addsplits':
nipkow@3930
   109
  instead of `<simpset> setloop (split_tac <thms>)'
nipkow@3964
   110
  you can simply write `<simpset> addsplits <thms>'
nipkow@3930
   111
nipkow@3580
   112
* HOL/simplifier: terms of the form
nipkow@3580
   113
  `? x. P1(x) & ... & Pn(x) & x=t & Q1(x) & ... Qn(x)' (or t=x)
nipkow@3580
   114
  are rewritten to
nipkow@4035
   115
  `P1(t) & ... & Pn(t) & Q1(t) & ... Qn(t)',
nipkow@4035
   116
  and those of the form
nipkow@4035
   117
  `! x. P1(x) & ... & Pn(x) & x=t & Q1(x) & ... Qn(x) --> R(x)' (or t=x)
nipkow@4035
   118
  are rewritten to
nipkow@4035
   119
  `P1(t) & ... & Pn(t) & Q1(t) & ... Qn(t) --> R(t)',
nipkow@4035
   120
nipkow@4035
   121
* HOL/datatype
nipkow@4035
   122
  Each datatype `t' now comes with a theorem `split_t_case' of the form
nipkow@3580
   123
nipkow@4035
   124
  P(t_case f1 ... fn x) =
nipkow@4035
   125
     ( (!y1 ... ym1. x = C1 y1 ... ym1 --> P(f1 y1 ... ym1)) &
nipkow@4035
   126
        ...
oheimb@4189
   127
       (!y1 ... ymn. x = Cn y1 ... ymn --> P(f1 y1 ... ymn))
nipkow@4035
   128
     )
nipkow@4035
   129
nipkow@4070
   130
  which can be added to a simpset via `addsplits'. The existing theorems
nipkow@4070
   131
  expand_list_case and expand_option_case have been renamed to
nipkow@4070
   132
  split_list_case and split_option_case.
nipkow@4035
   133
oheimb@4207
   134
  Additionally, there is a theorem `split_t_case_asm' of the form
oheimb@4189
   135
oheimb@4189
   136
  P(t_case f1 ... fn x) =
oheimb@4189
   137
    ~( (? y1 ... ym1. x = C1 y1 ... ym1 & ~P(f1 y1 ... ym1)) |
oheimb@4189
   138
        ...
oheimb@4189
   139
       (? y1 ... ymn. x = Cn y1 ... ymn & ~P(f1 y1 ... ymn))
oheimb@4189
   140
     )
oheimb@4189
   141
oheimb@4207
   142
  it be used with the new `split_asm_tac'.
oheimb@4189
   143
nipkow@4035
   144
* HOL/Lists: the function "set_of_list" has been renamed "set"
nipkow@4035
   145
  (and its theorems too);
paulson@3570
   146
paulson@4154
   147
* HOL/Set: UNIV is now a constant and is no longer translated to Compl{};
paulson@4154
   148
paulson@4154
   149
* HOL/Set: The operator (UN x.B x) now abbreviates (UN x:UNIV. B x) and its
paulson@4154
   150
  specialist theorems (like UN1_I) are gone.  Similarly for (INT x.B x);
paulson@4154
   151
wenzelm@4125
   152
paulson@3715
   153
*** HOLCF ***
wenzelm@3535
   154
wenzelm@4125
   155
* removed "axioms" and "generated by" sections;
wenzelm@4125
   156
oheimb@4123
   157
* replaced "ops" section by extended "consts" section, which is capable of
wenzelm@4125
   158
  handling the continuous function space "->" directly;
wenzelm@4125
   159
wenzelm@4125
   160
* domain package:
wenzelm@4125
   161
  . proves theorems immediately and stores them in the theory,
wenzelm@4125
   162
  . creates hierachical name space,
wenzelm@4125
   163
  . now uses normal mixfix annotations (instead of cinfix...),
wenzelm@4125
   164
  . minor changes to some names and values (for consistency),
wenzelm@4125
   165
  . e.g. cases -> casedist, dists_eq -> dist_eqs, [take_lemma] -> take_lemmas,
wenzelm@4125
   166
  . separator between mutual domain defs: changed "," to "and",
wenzelm@4125
   167
  . improved handling of sort constraints;  now they have to
wenzelm@4125
   168
    appear on the left-hand side of the equations only;
oheimb@4123
   169
oheimb@4123
   170
* fixed LAM <x,y,zs>.b syntax;
wenzelm@3567
   171
wenzelm@3744
   172
* added extended adm_tac to simplifier in HOLCF -- can now discharge
wenzelm@3744
   173
adm (%x. P (t x)), where P is chainfinite and t continuous;
wenzelm@3579
   174
wenzelm@3579
   175
paulson@3719
   176
*** FOL and ZF ***
paulson@3719
   177
oheimb@4207
   178
* FOL: there is a new splitter `split_asm_tac' that can be used e.g. 
oheimb@4189
   179
  with `addloop' of the simplifier to faciliate case splitting in premises.
oheimb@4189
   180
wenzelm@3744
   181
* qed_spec_mp, qed_goal_spec_mp, qed_goalw_spec_mp are available, as
wenzelm@3744
   182
in HOL, they strip ALL and --> from proved theorems;
wenzelm@3744
   183
paulson@3719
   184
wenzelm@3579
   185
wenzelm@3006
   186
New in Isabelle94-8 (May 1997)
wenzelm@3006
   187
------------------------------
wenzelm@2654
   188
paulson@3002
   189
*** General Changes ***
paulson@3002
   190
paulson@3002
   191
* new utilities to build / run / maintain Isabelle etc. (in parts
paulson@3002
   192
still somewhat experimental); old Makefiles etc. still functional;
wenzelm@2971
   193
wenzelm@3205
   194
* new 'Isabelle System Manual';
wenzelm@3205
   195
wenzelm@2825
   196
* INSTALL text, together with ./configure and ./build scripts;
wenzelm@2773
   197
wenzelm@3006
   198
* reimplemented type inference for greater efficiency, better error
wenzelm@3006
   199
messages and clean internal interface;
paulson@3002
   200
paulson@3002
   201
* prlim command for dealing with lots of subgoals (an easier way of
paulson@3002
   202
setting goals_limit);
paulson@3002
   203
wenzelm@3006
   204
wenzelm@3006
   205
*** Syntax ***
paulson@3002
   206
wenzelm@3116
   207
* supports alternative (named) syntax tables (parser and pretty
wenzelm@3116
   208
printer); internal interface is provided by add_modesyntax(_i);
wenzelm@3116
   209
paulson@3002
   210
* Pure, FOL, ZF, HOL, HOLCF now support symbolic input and output; to
paulson@3002
   211
be used in conjunction with the Isabelle symbol font; uses the
paulson@3002
   212
"symbols" syntax table;
paulson@3002
   213
wenzelm@2705
   214
* added token_translation interface (may translate name tokens in
wenzelm@2756
   215
arbitrary ways, dependent on their type (free, bound, tfree, ...) and
wenzelm@3116
   216
the current print_mode); IMPORTANT: user print translation functions
wenzelm@3116
   217
are responsible for marking newly introduced bounds
wenzelm@3116
   218
(Syntax.mark_boundT);
wenzelm@2705
   219
wenzelm@2730
   220
* token translations for modes "xterm" and "xterm_color" that display
wenzelm@3006
   221
names in bold, underline etc. or colors (which requires a color
wenzelm@3006
   222
version of xterm);
wenzelm@2730
   223
paulson@3002
   224
* infixes may now be declared with names independent of their syntax;
paulson@3002
   225
paulson@3002
   226
* added typed_print_translation (like print_translation, but may
paulson@3002
   227
access type of constant);
paulson@3002
   228
wenzelm@3006
   229
paulson@3002
   230
*** Classical Reasoner ***
paulson@3002
   231
paulson@3002
   232
Blast_tac: a new tactic!  It is often more powerful than fast_tac, but has
paulson@3002
   233
some limitations.  Blast_tac...
paulson@3002
   234
  + ignores addss, addbefore, addafter; this restriction is intrinsic
paulson@3002
   235
  + ignores elimination rules that don't have the correct format
paulson@3002
   236
	(the conclusion MUST be a formula variable)
paulson@3002
   237
  + ignores types, which can make HOL proofs fail
paulson@3002
   238
  + rules must not require higher-order unification, e.g. apply_type in ZF
paulson@3002
   239
    [message "Function Var's argument not a bound variable" relates to this]
paulson@3002
   240
  + its proof strategy is more general but can actually be slower
paulson@3002
   241
wenzelm@3107
   242
* substitution with equality assumptions no longer permutes other
wenzelm@3107
   243
assumptions;
paulson@3002
   244
paulson@3002
   245
* minor changes in semantics of addafter (now called addaltern); renamed
paulson@3002
   246
setwrapper to setWrapper and compwrapper to compWrapper; added safe wrapper
wenzelm@3107
   247
(and access functions for it);
paulson@3002
   248
oheimb@3317
   249
* improved combination of classical reasoner and simplifier: 
oheimb@3317
   250
  + functions for handling clasimpsets
oheimb@3317
   251
  + improvement of addss: now the simplifier is called _after_ the
oheimb@3317
   252
    safe steps.
oheimb@3317
   253
  + safe variant of addss called addSss: uses safe simplifications
oheimb@3317
   254
    _during_ the safe steps. It is more complete as it allows multiple 
oheimb@3317
   255
    instantiations of unknowns (e.g. with slow_tac).
wenzelm@3006
   256
paulson@3002
   257
*** Simplifier ***
paulson@3002
   258
wenzelm@3006
   259
* added interface for simplification procedures (functions that
wenzelm@3006
   260
produce *proven* rewrite rules on the fly, depending on current
wenzelm@3006
   261
redex);
wenzelm@3006
   262
wenzelm@3006
   263
* ordering on terms as parameter (used for ordered rewriting);
wenzelm@3006
   264
wenzelm@3107
   265
* new functions delcongs, deleqcongs, and Delcongs. richer rep_ss;
paulson@3002
   266
paulson@3002
   267
* the solver is now split into a safe and an unsafe part.
paulson@3002
   268
This should be invisible for the normal user, except that the
paulson@3002
   269
functions setsolver and addsolver have been renamed to setSolver and
wenzelm@3107
   270
addSolver; added safe_asm_full_simp_tac;
paulson@3002
   271
paulson@3002
   272
paulson@3002
   273
*** HOL ***
paulson@3002
   274
nipkow@3042
   275
* a generic induction tactic `induct_tac' which works for all datatypes and
wenzelm@3107
   276
also for type `nat';
nipkow@3042
   277
nipkow@3316
   278
* a generic case distinction tactic `exhaust_tac' which works for all
nipkow@3316
   279
datatypes and also for type `nat';
nipkow@3316
   280
nipkow@3316
   281
* each datatype comes with a function `size';
nipkow@3316
   282
paulson@3002
   283
* patterns in case expressions allow tuple patterns as arguments to
wenzelm@3107
   284
constructors, for example `case x of [] => ... | (x,y,z)#ps => ...';
paulson@3002
   285
paulson@3002
   286
* primrec now also works with type nat;
paulson@3002
   287
paulson@3338
   288
* recdef: a new declaration form, allows general recursive functions to be

quantifications in as far as possible (COULD MAKE EXISTING PROOFS
wenzelm@2554
   338
FAIL); can suppress it using the command Delsimps (ex_simps @

* theory files (.thy) no longer require \...\ escapes at line breaks;
paulson@2557
   398
paulson@2557
   399
* searchable theorem database (see the section "Retrieving theorems" on

paulson@2557
   403
Axiom of Choice;
paulson@2557
   404
paulson@2557
   405
* The previous version of HOL renamed to Old_HOL;
paulson@2557
   406
paulson@2557
   407
* The new version of HOL (previously called CHOL) uses a curried syntax 
paulson@2557
   408
for functions.  Application looks like f a b instead of f(a,b);
paulson@2557
   409
paulson@2557
   410
* Mutually recursive inductive definitions finally work in HOL;
paulson@2557
   411
paulson@2557
   412
* In ZF, pattern-matching on tuples is now available in all abstractions and
paulson@2557

* new infix operator, addss, allowing the classical reasoner to 
paulson@2557
   421
perform simplification at each step of its search.  Example:
paulson@2557
   422
	fast_tac (cs addss ss)
paulson@2557
   423
paulson@2557
   424
* a new logic, CHOL, the same as HOL, but with a curried syntax 
paulson@2557
   425
for functions.  Application looks like f a b instead of f(a,b).  Also pairs 
paulson@2557
   426
look like (a,b) instead of <a,b>;
paulson@2557
   427
paulson@2557
   428
* PLEASE NOTE: CHOL will eventually replace HOL!
paulson@2557
   429
paulson@2557
   430
* In CHOL, pattern-matching on tuples is now available in all abstractions.
paulson@2557

It translates to the operator "split".  A new theory of integers is available;
paulson@2557
   432
paulson@2557
   433
* In ZF, integer numerals now denote two's-complement binary integers.
paulson@2557
   434
Arithmetic operations can be performed by rewriting.  See ZF/ex/Bin.ML;
paulson@2557
   435
paulson@2557

paulson@2557
   445
paulson@2557
   446
* the different sections in a .thy file can now be mixed and repeated
paulson@2557
   447
freely;
paulson@2557
   448
paulson@2557
   449
* Database of theorems for FOL, HOL and ZF.  New
paulson@2557
   450
commands including qed, qed_goal and bind_thm store theorems in the database.
paulson@2557
   451
paulson@2557
   452
* Simple database queries: return a named theorem (get_thm) or all theorems of
paulson@2557
   453
a given theory (thms_of), or find out what theory a theorem was proved in
paulson@2557
   454
(theory_of_thm);
paulson@2557
   455
paulson@2557
   456
* Bugs fixed in the inductive definition and datatype packages;
paulson@2557
   457
paulson@2557
   458
* The classical reasoner provides deepen_tac and depth_tac, making FOL_dup_cs
paulson@2557
   459
and HOL_dup_cs obsolete;
paulson@2557
   460
paulson@2557
   461
* Syntactic ambiguities caused by the new treatment of syntax in Isabelle94-1
paulson@2557
   462
have been removed;
paulson@2557
