*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@11572
     9
wenzelm@11842
    10
* greatly simplified document preparation setup, including more
wenzelm@11842
    11
graceful interpretation of isatool usedir -i/-d/-D options, and more
wenzelm@11842
    12
instructive isatool mkdir; users should basically be able to get
wenzelm@11842
    13
started with "isatool mkdir Test && isatool make";
wenzelm@11842
    14
wenzelm@11842
    15
* theory dependency graph may now be incorporated into documents;
wenzelm@11842
    16
isatool usedir -g true will produce session_graph.eps/.pdf for use
wenzelm@11842
    17
with \includegraphics of LaTeX;
wenzelm@11842
    18
wenzelm@11864
    19
* proper spacing of consecutive markup elements, especially text
wenzelm@11864
    20
blocks after section headings;
wenzelm@11864
    21
wenzelm@11572
    22
* support bold style (for single symbols only), input syntax is like
wenzelm@11572
    23
this: "\<^bold>\<alpha>" or "\<^bold>A";
wenzelm@11572
    24
wenzelm@11814
    25
* \<bullet> is now output as bold \cdot by default, which looks much
wenzelm@11572
    26
better in printed text;
wenzelm@11572
    27
wenzelm@11712
    28
* added default LaTeX bindings for \<tturnstile> and \<TTurnstile>;
wenzelm@11712
    29
note that these symbols are currently unavailable in Proof General /
wenzelm@12769
    30
X-Symbol; new symbols \<zero>, \<one>, ..., \<nine>, and \<euro>;
wenzelm@12690
    31
wenzelm@12690
    32
* isatool latex no longer depends on changed TEXINPUTS, instead
wenzelm@12690
    33
isatool document copies the Isabelle style files to the target
wenzelm@12690
    34
location;
wenzelm@11712
    35
wenzelm@11572
    36
wenzelm@11633
    37
*** Isar ***
wenzelm@11633
    38
wenzelm@12312
    39
* Pure/Provers: improved proof by cases and induction;
wenzelm@12280
    40
  - 'case' command admits impromptu naming of parameters (such as
wenzelm@12280
    41
    "case (Suc n)");
wenzelm@12280
    42
  - 'induct' method divinates rule instantiation from the inductive
wenzelm@12280
    43
    claim; no longer requires excessive ?P bindings for proper
wenzelm@12280
    44
    instantiation of cases;
wenzelm@12280
    45
  - 'induct' method properly enumerates all possibilities of set/type
wenzelm@12280
    46
    rules; as a consequence facts may be also passed through *type*
wenzelm@12280
    47
    rules without further ado;
wenzelm@12280
    48
  - 'induct' method now derives symbolic cases from the *rulified*
wenzelm@12280
    49
    rule (before it used to rulify cases stemming from the internal
wenzelm@12280
    50
    atomized version); this means that the context of a non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
    51
    statement becomes is included in the hypothesis, avoiding the
wenzelm@12280
    52
    slightly cumbersome show "PROP ?case" form;
wenzelm@12280
    53
  - 'induct' may now use elim-style induction rules without chaining
wenzelm@12280
    54
    facts, using ``missing'' premises from the goal state; this allows
wenzelm@12280
    55
    rules stemming from inductive sets to be applied in unstructured
wenzelm@12280
    56
    scripts, while still benefitting from proper handling of non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
    57
    statements; NB: major inductive premises need to be put first, all
wenzelm@12280
    58
    the rest of the goal is passed through the induction;
wenzelm@12280
    59
  - 'induct' proper support for mutual induction involving non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
    60
    rule statements (uses the new concept of simultaneous goals, see
wenzelm@12280
    61
    below);
wenzelm@11995
    62
  - removed obsolete "(simplified)" and "(stripped)" options of methods;
wenzelm@12754
    63
  - undeclared rule case names default to numbers 1, 2, 3, ...;
wenzelm@12754
    64
  - added 'print_induct_rules' (covered by help item in recent Proof
wenzelm@12754
    65
    General versions);
wenzelm@11995
    66
  - moved induct/cases attributes to Pure, methods to Provers;
wenzelm@11995
    67
  - generic method setup instantiated for FOL and HOL;
wenzelm@11986
    68
wenzelm@12163
    69
* Pure: support multiple simultaneous goal statements, for example
wenzelm@12163
    70
"have a: A and b: B" (same for 'theorem' etc.); being a pure
wenzelm@12163
    71
meta-level mechanism, this acts as if several individual goals had
wenzelm@12163
    72
been stated separately; in particular common proof methods need to be
wenzelm@12163
    73
repeated in order to cover all claims; note that a single elimination
wenzelm@12163
    74
step is *not* sufficient to establish the two conjunctions, so this
wenzelm@12163
    75
fails:
wenzelm@12163
    76
wenzelm@12163
    77
  assume "A & B" then have A and B ..   (*".." fails*)
wenzelm@12163
    78
wenzelm@12163
    79
better use "obtain" in situations as above; alternative refer to
wenzelm@12163
    80
multi-step methods like 'auto', 'simp_all', 'blast+' etc.;
wenzelm@12163
    81
wenzelm@12078
    82
* Pure: proper integration with ``locales''; unlike the original
wenzelm@12210
    83
version by Florian Kammüller, Isar locales package high-level proof
wenzelm@12078
    84
contexts rather than raw logical ones (e.g. we admit to include
wenzelm@12280
    85
attributes everywhere); operations on locales include merge and
wenzelm@12280
    86
rename; e.g. see HOL/ex/Locales.thy;
wenzelm@12078
    87
wenzelm@12707
    88
* Pure: the following commands have been ``localized'', supporting a
wenzelm@12707
    89
target locale specification "(in name)": 'lemma', 'theorem',
wenzelm@12707
    90
'corollary', 'lemmas', 'theorems', 'declare'; the results will be
wenzelm@12707
    91
stored both within the locale and at the theory level (exported and
wenzelm@12707
    92
qualified by the locale name);
wenzelm@12707
    93
wenzelm@12078
    94
* Pure: theory goals now support ad-hoc contexts, which are discharged
wenzelm@12078
    95
in the result, as in ``lemma (assumes A and B) K: A .''; syntax
wenzelm@12078
    96
coincides with that of a locale body;
wenzelm@12078
    97
wenzelm@11722
    98
* Pure: renamed "antecedent" case to "rule_context";
wenzelm@11722
    99
wenzelm@11738
   100
* Pure: added 'corollary' command;
wenzelm@11738
   101
wenzelm@11722
   102
* Pure: fixed 'token_translation' command;
wenzelm@11722
   103
wenzelm@11899
   104
* Pure: removed obsolete 'exported' attribute;
wenzelm@11899
   105
wenzelm@11933
   106
* Pure: dummy pattern "_" in is/let is now automatically lifted over
wenzelm@11933
   107
bound variables: "ALL x. P x --> Q x" (is "ALL x. _ --> ?C x")
wenzelm@11899
   108
supersedes more cumbersome ... (is "ALL x. _ x --> ?C x");
wenzelm@11899
   109
wenzelm@11952
   110
* Pure: method 'atomize' presents local goal premises as object-level
wenzelm@11952
   111
statements (atomic meta-level propositions); setup controlled via
wenzelm@11952
   112
rewrite rules declarations of 'atomize' attribute; example
wenzelm@11952
   113
application: 'induct' method with proper rule statements in improper
wenzelm@11952
   114
proof *scripts*;
wenzelm@11952
   115
wenzelm@12106
   116
* Pure: emulation of instantiation tactics (rule_tac, cut_tac, etc.)
wenzelm@12106
   117
now consider the syntactic context of assumptions, giving a better
wenzelm@12106
   118
chance to get type-inference of the arguments right (this is
wenzelm@12106
   119
especially important for locales);
wenzelm@12106
   120
wenzelm@12312
   121
* Pure: "sorry" no longer requires quick_and_dirty in interactive
wenzelm@12312
   122
mode;
wenzelm@12312
   123
wenzelm@12405
   124
* Pure/obtain: the formal conclusion "thesis", being marked as
wenzelm@12405
   125
``internal'', may no longer be reference directly in the text;
wenzelm@12405
   126
potential INCOMPATIBILITY, may need to use "?thesis" in rare
wenzelm@12405
   127
situations;
wenzelm@12405
   128
wenzelm@12405
   129
* Pure: generic 'sym' attribute which declares a rule both as pure
wenzelm@12405
   130
'elim?' and for the 'symmetric' operation;
wenzelm@12405
   131
wenzelm@12364
   132
* Pure/Provers/classical: simplified integration with pure rule
wenzelm@12364
   133
attributes and methods; the classical "intro?/elim?/dest?"
wenzelm@12364
   134
declarations coincide with the pure ones; the "rule" method no longer
wenzelm@12364
   135
includes classically swapped intros; "intro" and "elim" methods no
wenzelm@12364
   136
longer pick rules from the context; also got rid of ML declarations
wenzelm@12364
   137
AddXIs/AddXEs/AddXDs; all of this has some potential for
wenzelm@12364
   138
INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12364
   139
wenzelm@12405
   140
* Provers/classical: attribute 'swapped' produces classical inversions
wenzelm@12405
   141
of introduction rules;
wenzelm@12405
   142
wenzelm@12364
   143
* Provers/simplifier: 'simplified' attribute may refer to explicit
wenzelm@12364
   144
rules instead of full simplifier context; 'iff' attribute handles
wenzelm@12364
   145
conditional rules;
wenzelm@11936
   146
wenzelm@11745
   147
* HOL: 'typedef' now allows alternative names for Rep/Abs morphisms;
wenzelm@11745
   148
wenzelm@11690
   149
* HOL: 'recdef' now fails on unfinished automated proofs, use
wenzelm@11633
   150
"(permissive)" option to recover old behavior;
wenzelm@11633
   151
wenzelm@11933
   152
* HOL: 'inductive' no longer features separate (collective) attributes
wenzelm@11933
   153
for 'intros' (was found too confusing);
wenzelm@11933
   154
wenzelm@12405
   155
* HOL: properly declared induction rules less_induct and
wenzelm@12405
   156
wf_induct_rule;
wenzelm@12405
   157
kleing@11788
   158
wenzelm@11474
   159
*** HOL ***
wenzelm@11474
   160
wenzelm@11702
   161
* HOL: moved over to sane numeral syntax; the new policy is as
wenzelm@11702
   162
follows:
wenzelm@11702
   163
wenzelm@11702
   164
  - 0 and 1 are polymorphic constants, which are defined on any
wenzelm@11702
   165
  numeric type (nat, int, real etc.);
wenzelm@11702
   166
wenzelm@11702
   167
  - 2, 3, 4, ... and -1, -2, -3, ... are polymorphic numerals, based
wenzelm@11702
   168
  binary representation internally;
wenzelm@11702
   169
wenzelm@11702
   170
  - type nat has special constructor Suc, and generally prefers Suc 0
wenzelm@11702
   171
  over 1::nat and Suc (Suc 0) over 2::nat;
wenzelm@11702
   172
wenzelm@12364
   173
This change may cause significant problems of INCOMPATIBILITY; here
wenzelm@12364
   174
are some hints on converting existing sources:
wenzelm@11702
   175
wenzelm@11702
   176
  - due to the new "num" token, "-0" and "-1" etc. are now atomic
wenzelm@11702
   177
  entities, so expressions involving "-" (unary or binary minus) need
wenzelm@11702
   178
  to be spaced properly;
wenzelm@11702
   179
wenzelm@11702
   180
  - existing occurrences of "1" may need to be constraint "1::nat" or
wenzelm@11702
   181
  even replaced by Suc 0; similar for old "2";
wenzelm@11702
   182
wenzelm@11702
   183
  - replace "#nnn" by "nnn", and "#-nnn" by "-nnn";
wenzelm@11702
   184
wenzelm@11702
   185
  - remove all special provisions on numerals in proofs;
wenzelm@11702
   186
wenzelm@12736
   187
* HOL: symbolic syntax for x^2 (numeral 2);
wenzelm@12736
   188
wenzelm@12335
   189
* HOL: the class of all HOL types is now called "type" rather than
wenzelm@12335
   190
"term"; INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt references to this type class
wenzelm@12335
   191
in axclass/classes, instance/arities, and (usually rare) occurrences
wenzelm@12335
   192
in typings (of consts etc.); internally the class is called
wenzelm@12335
   193
"HOL.type", ML programs should refer to HOLogic.typeS;
wenzelm@12335
   194
wenzelm@12280
   195
* HOL/record package improvements:
wenzelm@12280
   196
  - new derived operations "fields" to build a partial record section,
wenzelm@12280
   197
    "extend" to promote a fixed record to a record scheme, and
wenzelm@12280
   198
    "truncate" for the reverse; cf. theorems "xxx.defs", which are *not*
wenzelm@12280
   199
    declared as simp by default;
wenzelm@12587
   200
  - shared operations ("more", "fields", etc.) now need to be always
wenzelm@12587
   201
    qualified) --- potential INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12280
   202
  - removed "make_scheme" operations (use "make" with "extend") --
wenzelm@12280
   203
    INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@11937
   204
  - removed "more" class (simply use "term") -- INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12253
   205
  - provides cases/induct rules for use with corresponding Isar
wenzelm@12253
   206
    methods (for concrete records, record schemes, concrete more
wenzelm@12280
   207
    parts, and schematic more parts -- in that order);
wenzelm@11930
   208
  - internal definitions directly based on a light-weight abstract
wenzelm@11930
   209
    theory of product types over typedef rather than datatype;
wenzelm@11930
   210
wenzelm@11933
   211
* HOL: canonical cases/induct rules for n-tuples (n = 3..7);
wenzelm@11933
   212
wenzelm@11802
   213
* HOL: concrete setsum syntax "\<Sum>i:A. b" == "setsum (%i. b) A"
wenzelm@11802
   214
(beware of argument permutation!);
wenzelm@11802
   215
wenzelm@11657
   216
* HOL: linorder_less_split superseded by linorder_cases;
wenzelm@11657
   217
wenzelm@11633
   218
* HOL: added "The" definite description operator; move Hilbert's "Eps"
wenzelm@11633
   219
to peripheral theory "Hilbert_Choice";
wenzelm@11437
   220
wenzelm@11572
   221
* HOL: made split_all_tac safe; EXISTING PROOFS MAY FAIL OR LOOP, so
wenzelm@11572
   222
in this (rare) case use:
wenzelm@11572
   223
wenzelm@11572
   224
  delSWrapper "split_all_tac"
wenzelm@11572
   225
  addSbefore ("unsafe_split_all_tac", unsafe_split_all_tac)
wenzelm@11572
   226
wenzelm@11572
   227
* HOL: added safe wrapper "split_conv_tac" to claset; EXISTING PROOFS
wenzelm@11474
   228
MAY FAIL;
nipkow@11361
   229
wenzelm@11572
   230
* HOL: introduced f^n = f o ... o f; warning: due to the limits of
wenzelm@11572
   231
Isabelle's type classes, ^ on functions and relations has too general
wenzelm@11572
   232
a domain, namely ('a * 'b) set and 'a => 'b; this means that it may be
wenzelm@11572
   233
necessary to attach explicit type constraints;
nipkow@11307
   234
nipkow@12489
   235
* HOL/Relation: the prefix name of the infix "O" has been changed from "comp"
nipkow@12489
   236
to "rel_comp"; INCOMPATIBILITY: a few theorems have been renamed accordingly
nipkow@12489
   237
(eg "compI" -> "rel_compI").
nipkow@12489
   238
wenzelm@11487
   239
* HOL: syntax translations now work properly with numerals and records
wenzelm@11487
   240
expressions;
wenzelm@11474
   241
wenzelm@12457
   242
* HOL: bounded abstraction now uses syntax "%" / "\<lambda>" instead
wenzelm@12457
   243
of "lam" -- INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@11474
   244
wenzelm@11933
   245
* HOL: got rid of some global declarations (potential INCOMPATIBILITY
wenzelm@11933
   246
for ML tools): const "()" renamed "Product_Type.Unity", type "unit"
wenzelm@11933
   247
renamed "Product_Type.unit";
wenzelm@11611
   248
nipkow@12564
   249
* HOL: renamed rtrancl_into_rtrancl2 to converse_rtrancl_into_rtrancl
nipkow@12564
   250
wenzelm@12597
   251
* HOL/GroupTheory: group theory examples including Sylow's theorem (by
wenzelm@12597
   252
Florian Kammüller);
wenzelm@12597
   253
wenzelm@12608
   254
* HOL/IMP: updated and converted to new-style theory format; several
wenzelm@12608
   255
parts turned into readable document, with proper Isar proof texts and
wenzelm@12608
   256
some explanations (by Gerwin Klein);
wenzelm@12597
   257
wenzelm@12734
   258
* HOL-Real: added Complex_Numbers (by Gertrud Bauer);
wenzelm@12734
   259
wenzelm@12690
   260
* HOL-Hyperreal is now a logic image;
wenzelm@12690
   261
wenzelm@11611
   262
wenzelm@12022
   263
*** HOLCF ***
wenzelm@12022
   264
wenzelm@12622
   265
* Isar: consts/constdefs supports mixfix syntax for continuous
wenzelm@12622
   266
operations;
wenzelm@12622
   267
wenzelm@12622
   268

* theory Lift: proper use of rep_datatype lift instead of ML hacks --
wenzelm@12280
   272
potential INCOMPATIBILITY; now use plain induct_tac instead of former
wenzelm@12280
   273
lift.induct_tac, always use UU instead of Undef;
wenzelm@12022
   274
wenzelm@12597

wenzelm@11474
   279
wenzelm@12622

* Isar: proper integration of logic-specific tools and packages,
wenzelm@12622
   281
including theory commands '(co)inductive', '(co)datatype',
wenzelm@12622
   282
'rep_datatype', 'inductive_cases', as well as methods 'ind_cases',
wenzelm@12622
   283
'induct_tac', 'case_tac', and 'typecheck' (with attribute 'TC');
wenzelm@12622
   284
wenzelm@12622
   285
* theory Main no longer includes AC; for the Axiom of Choice, base
wenzelm@12622
   286
your theory on Main_ZFC;
wenzelm@12622
   287
wenzelm@12622
   288
* the integer library now covers quotients and remainders, with many
wenzelm@12622
   289
laws relating division to addition, multiplication, etc.;
paulson@12563
   290
wenzelm@12280
   291
* ZF/UNITY: Chandy and Misra's UNITY is now available in ZF, giving a
wenzelm@12280
   292
typeless version of the formalism;
wenzelm@12280
   293
wenzelm@12608
   294
* ZF/IMP: updated and converted to new-style theory format;
wenzelm@12608
   295
wenzelm@12280
   296
* ZF/Induct: new directory for examples of inductive definitions,
wenzelm@12608
   297
including theory Multiset for multiset orderings; converted to
wenzelm@12608
   298
new-style theory format;

wenzelm@12280
   303
* Pure/kernel: meta-level proof terms (by Stefan Berghofer); reference
wenzelm@12280
   304
variable proof controls level of detail: 0 = no proofs (only oracle
wenzelm@12280
   305
dependencies), 1 = lemma dependencies, 2 = compact proof terms; see
wenzelm@12280
   306
also ref manual for further ML interfaces;
wenzelm@12280
   307
wenzelm@12280
   308
* Pure/axclass: removed obsolete ML interface
wenzelm@12280
   309
goal_subclass/goal_arity;
wenzelm@12280
   310
wenzelm@12280
   311
* Pure/syntax: new token syntax "num" for plain numerals (without "#"
wenzelm@12280
   312
of "xnum"); potential INCOMPATIBILITY, since -0, -1 etc. are now
wenzelm@12280
   313
separate tokens, so expressions involving minus need to be spaced
wenzelm@12280
   314
properly;
wenzelm@12280
   315
wenzelm@12312
   316
* Pure/syntax: support non-oriented infixes, using keyword "infix"
wenzelm@12312
   317
rather than "infixl" or "infixr";
wenzelm@12312
   318
wenzelm@12312
   319
* Pure/syntax: concrete syntax for dummy type variables admits genuine
wenzelm@12312
   320
sort constraint specifications in type inference; e.g. "x::_::foo"
wenzelm@12312
   321
ensures that the type of "x" is of sort "foo" (but not necessarily a
wenzelm@12312
   322
type variable);
wenzelm@12280
   323
wenzelm@12280
   324
* Pure/syntax: print modes "type_brackets" and "no_type_brackets"
wenzelm@12280
   325
control output of nested => (types); the default behavior is
wenzelm@12280
   326
"type_brackets";
wenzelm@12280
   327
wenzelm@12280
   328
* Pure/syntax: builtin parse translation for "_constify" turns valued
wenzelm@11817
   329
tokens into AST constants;
wenzelm@11474
   330
wenzelm@12280
   331
* Pure/syntax: prefer later declarations of translations and print
wenzelm@12280
   332
translation functions; potential INCOMPATIBILITY: need to reverse
wenzelm@12280
   333
multiple declarations for same syntax element constant;
wenzelm@12280
   334
wenzelm@12280
   335
* Provers/classical: renamed addaltern to addafter, addSaltern to
wenzelm@12280
   336
addSafter;
wenzelm@12280
   337
wenzelm@12280
   338
* Provers/clasimp: ``iff'' declarations now handle conditional rules
wenzelm@12280
   339
as well;
wenzelm@12253
   340
wenzelm@12538
   341
* system: tested support for MacOS X; should be able to get Isabelle +
wenzelm@12538
   342
Proof General to work in a plain Terminal after installing Poly/ML
wenzelm@12538
   343
(e.g. from the Isabelle distribution area) and GNU bash alone
wenzelm@12538
   344
(e.g. from http://www.apple.com); full X11, XEmacs and X-Symbol
wenzelm@12538
   345
support requires further installations, e.g. from
wenzelm@12538
   346
http://fink.sourceforge.net/);
wenzelm@12538
   347
wenzelm@12280
   348
* system: support Poly/ML 4.1.1 (able to manage larger heaps);
wenzelm@11551
   349
wenzelm@12753
   350
* system: reduced base memory usage by Poly/ML (approx. 20 MB instead
wenzelm@12753
   351
of 40 MB), cf. ML_OPTIONS;
wenzelm@12753
   352
wenzelm@11633
   353
* system: Proof General keywords specification is now part of the
wenzelm@11633
   354
Isabelle distribution (see etc/isar-keywords.el);
wenzelm@11633
   355
wenzelm@12728
   356
* system: support for persistent Proof General sessions (refrain from
wenzelm@12728
   357
outdating all loaded theories on startup); user may create writable
wenzelm@12728
   358
logic images like this: ``isabelle -q HOL Test'';
wenzelm@12597
   359
wenzelm@11551
   360
* system: smart selection of Isabelle process versus Isabelle
wenzelm@11572
   361
interface, accommodates case-insensitive file systems (e.g. HFS+); may
wenzelm@11572
   362
run both "isabelle" and "Isabelle" even if file names are badly
wenzelm@11572
   363
damaged (executable inspects the case of the first letter of its own
wenzelm@11572
   364
name); added separate "isabelle-process" and "isabelle-interface";
wenzelm@11551
   365
wenzelm@12472
   366
* system: refrain from any attempt at filtering input streams; no
wenzelm@12472
   367
longer support ``8bit'' encoding of old isabelle font, instead proper
wenzelm@12472
   368
iso-latin characters may now be used; the related isatools
wenzelm@12472
   369
"symbolinput" and "nonascii" have disappeared as well;
wenzelm@12472
   370
wenzelm@12472
   371
* system: removed old "xterm" interface (the print modes "xterm" and
wenzelm@12472
   372
"xterm_color" are still available for direct use in a suitable
wenzelm@12472
   373
terminal);

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES ***
nipkow@10224
   381
paulson@11241
   382
* HOL: please note that theories in the Library and elsewhere often use the
paulson@11241
   383
new-style (Isar) format; to refer to their theorems in an ML script you must
wenzelm@12622
   384
bind them to ML identifers by e.g.      val thm_name = thm "thm_name";
paulson@11241
   385
wenzelm@11043
   386
* HOL: inductive package no longer splits induction rule aggressively,
wenzelm@11043
   387
but only as far as specified by the introductions given; the old
oheimb@11130
   388
format may be recovered via ML function complete_split_rule or attribute
wenzelm@11043
   389
'split_rule (complete)';
wenzelm@11043
   390
wenzelm@10998
   391
* HOL: induct renamed to lfp_induct, lfp_Tarski to lfp_unfold,
wenzelm@10998
   392
gfp_Tarski to gfp_unfold;
nipkow@10224
   393
paulson@10288
   394
* HOL: contrapos, contrapos2 renamed to contrapos_nn, contrapos_pp;
paulson@10288
   395
wenzelm@10858
   396
* HOL: infix "dvd" now has priority 50 rather than 70 (because it is a
wenzelm@10858
   397
relation); infix "^^" has been renamed "``"; infix "``" has been
wenzelm@10858
   398
renamed "`"; "univalent" has been renamed "single_valued";
nipkow@10793
   399
wenzelm@10998
   400
* HOL/Real: "rinv" and "hrinv" replaced by overloaded "inverse"
wenzelm@10998
   401
operation;
wenzelm@10998
   402
nipkow@10868
   403
* HOLCF: infix "`" has been renamed "$"; the symbol syntax is \<cdot>;
nipkow@10856
   404
wenzelm@10391
   405
* Isar: 'obtain' no longer declares "that" fact as simp/intro;
wenzelm@10391
   406
wenzelm@10401
   407
* Isar/HOL: method 'induct' now handles non-atomic goals; as a
wenzelm@10401
   408
consequence, it is no longer monotonic wrt. the local goal context
wenzelm@10401
   409
(which is now passed through the inductive cases);
wenzelm@10401
   410
wenzelm@10976
   411
* Document preparation: renamed standard symbols \<ll> to \<lless> and
wenzelm@10976
   412
\<gg> to \<ggreater>;
wenzelm@10976
   413
nipkow@10224

wenzelm@10245
   415
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@10245
   416
wenzelm@10858
   417
* \isabellestyle{NAME} selects version of Isabelle output (currently
wenzelm@10858
   418
available: are "it" for near math-mode best-style output, "sl" for
wenzelm@10858
   419
slanted text style, and "tt" for plain type-writer; if no
wenzelm@10858
   420
\isabellestyle command is given, output is according to slanted
wenzelm@10858
   421
type-writer);
wenzelm@10858
   422
wenzelm@10322
   423
* support sub/super scripts (for single symbols only), input syntax is
wenzelm@10322
   424
like this: "A\<^sup>*" or "A\<^sup>\<star>";
wenzelm@10322
   425
wenzelm@10858
   426
* some more standard symbols; see Appendix A of the system manual for
wenzelm@11062
   427
the complete list of symbols defined in isabellesym.sty;
wenzelm@10858
   428
wenzelm@10998
   429
* improved isabelle style files; more abstract symbol implementation
wenzelm@10998
   430
(should now use \isamath{...} and \isatext{...} in custom symbol
wenzelm@10998
   431
definitions);
wenzelm@10998
   432
wenzelm@10634
   433
* antiquotation @{goals} and @{subgoals} for output of *dynamic* goals
wenzelm@10634
   434
state; Note that presentation of goal states does not conform to
wenzelm@10634
   435
actual human-readable proof documents.  Please do not include goal
wenzelm@10634
   436
states into document output unless you really know what you are doing!
wenzelm@10322
   437
wenzelm@11062
   438
* proper indentation of antiquoted output with proportional LaTeX
wenzelm@11062
   439
fonts;
wenzelm@10862
   440
wenzelm@11050
   441
* no_document ML operator temporarily disables LaTeX document
wenzelm@11050
   442
generation;
wenzelm@11050
   443
wenzelm@11062
   444

wenzelm@10306
   447
*** Isar ***
wenzelm@10306
   448
wenzelm@10547
   449
* Pure: Isar now suffers initial goal statements to contain unbound
wenzelm@10547
   450
schematic variables (this does not conform to actual readable proof
wenzelm@10547
   451
documents, due to unpredictable outcome and non-compositional proof
wenzelm@10547
   452
checking); users who know what they are doing may use schematic goals
wenzelm@10547
   453
for Prolog-style synthesis of proven results;
wenzelm@10547
   454
wenzelm@10391
   455
* Pure: assumption method (an implicit finishing) now handles actual
wenzelm@10391
   456
rules as well;
wenzelm@10391
   457
wenzelm@10391
   458
* Pure: improved 'obtain' --- moved to Pure, insert "that" into
wenzelm@10391
   459
initial goal, declare "that" only as Pure intro (only for single
wenzelm@10391
   460
steps); the "that" rule assumption may now be involved in implicit
wenzelm@10391
   461
finishing, thus ".." becomes a feasible for trivial obtains;
wenzelm@10391
   462
wenzelm@10391
   463
* Pure: default proof step now includes 'intro_classes'; thus trivial
wenzelm@10391
   464
instance proofs may be performed by "..";
wenzelm@10391
   465
wenzelm@10391
   466
* Pure: ?thesis / ?this / "..." now work for pure meta-level
wenzelm@10391
   467
statements as well;
wenzelm@10306
   468
wenzelm@11097
   469
* Pure: more robust selection of calculational rules;
wenzelm@11097
   470
wenzelm@10858
   471
* Pure: the builtin notion of 'finished' goal now includes the ==-refl
wenzelm@10858
   472
rule (as well as the assumption rule);
wenzelm@10858
   473
wenzelm@10858
   474
* Pure: 'thm_deps' command visualizes dependencies of theorems and
wenzelm@10858
   475
lemmas, using the graph browser tool;
wenzelm@10858
   476
wenzelm@10944
   477
* Pure: predict failure of "show" in interactive mode;
wenzelm@10944
   478
wenzelm@11016
   479
* Pure: 'thms_containing' now takes actual terms as arguments;
wenzelm@11016
   480
wenzelm@10401
   481
* HOL: improved method 'induct' --- now handles non-atomic goals
wenzelm@10401
   482
(potential INCOMPATIBILITY); tuned error handling;
wenzelm@10401
   483
wenzelm@10557
   484
* HOL: cases and induct rules now provide explicit hints about the
wenzelm@10547
   485
number of facts to be consumed (0 for "type" and 1 for "set" rules);
wenzelm@10547
   486
any remaining facts are inserted into the goal verbatim;
wenzelm@10547
   487
wenzelm@10858
   488
* HOL: local contexts (aka cases) may now contain term bindings as
wenzelm@10858
   489
well; the 'cases' and 'induct' methods new provide a ?case binding for
wenzelm@10858
   490
the result to be shown in each case;
wenzelm@10858
   491
wenzelm@10770
   492
* HOL: added 'recdef_tc' command;
wenzelm@10770
   493
wenzelm@11016
   494
* isatool convert assists in eliminating legacy ML scripts;

*** HOL ***
wenzelm@10245
   498
wenzelm@10245
   499
* HOL/Library: a collection of generic theories to be used together
wenzelm@10245
   500
with main HOL; the theory loader path already includes this directory
wenzelm@10245
   501
by default; the following existing theories have been moved here:
wenzelm@10245
   502
HOL/Induct/Multiset, HOL/Induct/Acc (as Accessible_Part), HOL/While
wenzelm@10337
   503
(as While_Combinator), HOL/Lex/Prefix (as List_Prefix);
wenzelm@10245
   504
wenzelm@10966
   505
* HOL/Unix: "Some aspects of Unix file-system security", a typical
wenzelm@10966
   506
modelling and verification task performed in Isabelle/HOL +
wenzelm@10966
   507
Isabelle/Isar + Isabelle document preparation (by Markus Wenzel).
wenzelm@10966
   508
wenzelm@11094
   509
* HOL/Algebra: special summation operator SUM no longer exists, it has
wenzelm@11094
   510
been replaced by setsum; infix 'assoc' now has priority 50 (like
wenzelm@11094
   511
'dvd'); axiom 'one_not_zero' has been moved from axclass 'ring' to
wenzelm@11094
   512
'domain', this makes the theory consistent with mathematical
wenzelm@11094
   513
literature;
wenzelm@11094
   514
wenzelm@10514
   515
* HOL basics: added overloaded operations "inverse" and "divide"
wenzelm@10726
   516
(infix "/"), syntax for generic "abs" operation, generic summation
wenzelm@11094
   517
operator \<Sum>;
wenzelm@10452
   518
wenzelm@10391
   519
* HOL/typedef: simplified package, provide more useful rules (see also
wenzelm@10391
   520
HOL/subset.thy);
wenzelm@10391
   521
wenzelm@10915
   522
* HOL/datatype: induction rule for arbitrarily branching datatypes is
wenzelm@10915
   523
now expressed as a proper nested rule (old-style tactic scripts may
wenzelm@10915
   524
require atomize_strip_tac to cope with non-atomic premises);
wenzelm@10915
   525
wenzelm@10915
   526
* HOL: renamed theory "Prod" to "Product_Type", renamed "split" rule
wenzelm@10915
   527
to "split_conv" (old name still available for compatibility);
wenzelm@10915
   528
wenzelm@10915
   529
* HOL: improved concrete syntax for strings (e.g. allows translation
wenzelm@10915
   530
rules with string literals);
wenzelm@10915
   531
paulson@12245
   532
* HOL-Real-Hyperreal: this extends HOL-Real with the hyperreals
paulson@12245
   533
 and Fleuriot's mechanization of analysis, including the transcendental
paulson@12245
   534
 functions for the reals;
paulson@10756

   542
"lam" is displayed as TWO lambda-symbols
paulson@10474
   543

wenzelm@10547
   550
* Pure: the Simplifier has been implemented properly as a derived rule
wenzelm@10547
   551
outside of the actual kernel (at last!); the overall performance
wenzelm@10547
   552
penalty in practical applications is about 50%, while reliability of
wenzelm@10547
   553
the Isabelle inference kernel has been greatly improved;
wenzelm@10547
   554
wenzelm@11112
   555
* print modes "brackets" and "no_brackets" control output of nested =>
wenzelm@11112
   556
(types) and ==> (props); the default behaviour is "brackets";
wenzelm@11112
   557
wenzelm@10391
   558
* Provers: fast_tac (and friends) now handle actual object-logic rules
wenzelm@10391
   559
as assumptions as well;
wenzelm@10391
   560
wenzelm@11124
   561
* system: support Poly/ML 4.0;
wenzelm@11124
   562
wenzelm@11124
   563
* system: isatool install handles KDE version 1 or 2;

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES ***
paulson@8014
   571
wenzelm@8848
   572
* HOL: simplification of natural numbers is much changed; to partly
wenzelm@8848
   573
recover the old behaviour (e.g. to prevent n+n rewriting to #2*n)
wenzelm@8848
   574
issue the following ML commands:
wenzelm@8848
   575
wenzelm@8848
   576
  Delsimprocs Nat_Numeral_Simprocs.cancel_numerals;
wenzelm@8848
   577
  Delsimprocs [Nat_Numeral_Simprocs.combine_numerals];
paulson@8788
   578
wenzelm@10129
   579
* HOL: simplification no longer dives into case-expressions; this is
wenzelm@10129
   580
controlled by "t.weak_case_cong" for each datatype t;
wenzelm@10003
   581
wenzelm@10003
   582
* HOL: nat_less_induct renamed to less_induct;
wenzelm@10003
   583
wenzelm@10003
   584
* HOL: systematic renaming of the SOME (Eps) rules, may use isatool
wenzelm@10003
   585
fixsome to patch .thy and .ML sources automatically;
paulson@8967
   586
wenzelm@10003
   587
  select_equality  -> some_equality
wenzelm@10003
   588
  select_eq_Ex     -> some_eq_ex
wenzelm@10003
   589
  selectI2EX       -> someI2_ex
wenzelm@10003
   590
  selectI2         -> someI2
wenzelm@10003
   591
  selectI          -> someI
wenzelm@10003
   592
  select1_equality -> some1_equality
wenzelm@10003
   593
  Eps_sym_eq       -> some_sym_eq_trivial
wenzelm@10003
   594
  Eps_eq           -> some_eq_trivial
wenzelm@10003
   595
wenzelm@10003
   596
* HOL: exhaust_tac on datatypes superceded by new generic case_tac;
wenzelm@10003
   597
wenzelm@10003
   598
* HOL: removed obsolete theorem binding expand_if (refer to split_if
wenzelm@10003
   599
instead);
wenzelm@10003
   600
wenzelm@10003
   601
* HOL: the recursion equations generated by 'recdef' are now called
wenzelm@10003
   602
f.simps instead of f.rules;
wenzelm@10003
   603
wenzelm@10003
   604
* HOL: qed_spec_mp now also handles bounded ALL as well;
wenzelm@10003
   605
wenzelm@10003
   606
* HOL: 0 is now overloaded, so the type constraint ":: nat" may
wenzelm@10003
   607
sometimes be needed;
wenzelm@10003
   608
wenzelm@10003
   609
* HOL: the constant for "f``x" is now "image" rather than "op ``";
paulson@8014
   610
paulson@10065
   611
* HOL: the constant for "f-``x" is now "vimage" rather than "op -``";
paulson@10065
   612
wenzelm@9330
   613
* HOL: the disjoint sum is now "<+>" instead of "Plus"; the cartesian
wenzelm@9330
   614
product is now "<*>" instead of "Times"; the lexicographic product is
wenzelm@9330
   615
now "<*lex*>" instead of "**";
nipkow@8705
   616
wenzelm@10003
   617
* HOL: theory Sexp is now in HOL/Induct examples (it used to be part
wenzelm@10003
   618
of main HOL, but was unused); better use HOL's datatype package;
paulson@9971
   619
wenzelm@10137
   620
* HOL: removed "symbols" syntax for constant "override" of theory Map;
wenzelm@10137
   621
the old syntax may be recovered as follows:
wenzelm@10137
   622
wenzelm@10137
   623
  syntax (symbols)
wenzelm@10137
   624
    override  :: "('a ~=> 'b) => ('a ~=> 'b) => ('a ~=> 'b)"
wenzelm@10137
   625
      (infixl "\\<oplus>" 100)
wenzelm@10137
   626
wenzelm@8848
   627
* HOL/Real: "rabs" replaced by overloaded "abs" function;
wenzelm@8848
   628
wenzelm@8887
   629
* HOL/ML: even fewer consts are declared as global (see theories Ord,
wenzelm@8887
   630
Lfp, Gfp, WF); this only affects ML packages that refer to const names
wenzelm@8887
   631
internally;
wenzelm@8887
   632
wenzelm@10003
   633
* HOL and ZF: syntax for quotienting wrt an equivalence relation
wenzelm@10003
   634
changed from A/r to A//r;
wenzelm@9908
   635
wenzelm@10003
   636
* ZF: new treatment of arithmetic (nat & int) may break some old
wenzelm@10003
   637
proofs;
wenzelm@8921
   638
wenzelm@10003
   639
* Isar: renamed some attributes (RS -> THEN, simplify -> simplified,
wenzelm@10003
   640
rulify -> rule_format, elimify -> elim_format, ...);
paulson@9542
   641
wenzelm@9941
   642
* Isar/Provers: intro/elim/dest attributes changed; renamed
wenzelm@9941
   643
intro/intro!/intro!! flags to intro!/intro/intro? (in most cases, one
wenzelm@9937
   644
should have to change intro!! to intro? only); replaced "delrule" by
wenzelm@9937
   645
"rule del";
wenzelm@9437
   646
wenzelm@9612
   647
* Isar/HOL: renamed "intrs" to "intros" in inductive definitions;
wenzelm@9612
   648
wenzelm@9437
   649
* Provers: strengthened force_tac by using new first_best_tac;
oheimb@9402
   650
wenzelm@10003
   651
* LaTeX document preparation: several changes of isabelle.sty (see
wenzelm@10003
   652
lib/texinputs);
wenzelm@8729
   653
paulson@8014
   654
wenzelm@8487
   655
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@8358
   656
wenzelm@9198
   657
* formal comments (text blocks etc.) in new-style theories may now
wenzelm@9753
   658
contain antiquotations of thm/prop/term/typ/text to be presented
wenzelm@9753
   659
according to latex print mode; concrete syntax is like this:
wenzelm@9753
   660
@{term[show_types] "f(x) = a + x"};
wenzelm@9198
   661
wenzelm@8358
   662
* isatool mkdir provides easy setup of Isabelle session directories,
wenzelm@8518
   663
including proper document sources;
wenzelm@8358
   664
wenzelm@8358
   665
* generated LaTeX sources are now deleted after successful run
wenzelm@8358
   666
(isatool document -c); may retain a copy somewhere else via -D option
wenzelm@8358
   667
of isatool usedir;
wenzelm@8358
   668
wenzelm@8566
   669
* isatool usedir -D now lets isatool latex -o sty update the Isabelle
wenzelm@10003
   670
style files, achieving self-contained LaTeX sources and simplifying
wenzelm@10003
   671
LaTeX debugging;
wenzelm@8566
   672
wenzelm@8518
   673
* old-style theories now produce (crude) LaTeX output as well;
wenzelm@8358
   674
wenzelm@9057
   675
* browser info session directories are now self-contained (may be put
wenzelm@9437
   676
on WWW server seperately); improved graphs of nested sessions; removed
wenzelm@9437
   677
graph for 'all sessions';
wenzelm@9057
   678
wenzelm@10003
   679
* several improvements in isabelle style files; \isabellestyle{it}
wenzelm@10003
   680
produces fake math mode output; \isamarkupheader is now \section by
wenzelm@10003
   681
default; see lib/texinputs/isabelle.sty etc.;
wenzelm@9489
   682
wenzelm@8358
   683
wenzelm@8184
   684
*** Isar ***
wenzelm@8184
   685
wenzelm@10003
   686
* Isar/Pure: local results and corresponding term bindings are now
wenzelm@10003
   687
subject to Hindley-Milner polymorphism (similar to ML); this
wenzelm@10003
   688
accommodates incremental type-inference very nicely;
wenzelm@8283
   689
wenzelm@10003
   690
* Isar/Pure: new derived language element 'obtain' supports
wenzelm@10003
   691
generalized existence reasoning;
wenzelm@8621
   692
wenzelm@10003
   693
* Isar/Pure: new calculational elements 'moreover' and 'ultimately'
wenzelm@10003
   694
support accumulation of results, without applying any rules yet;
wenzelm@10003
   695
useful to collect intermediate results without explicit name
wenzelm@10003
   696
references, and for use with transitivity rules with more than 2
wenzelm@10003
   697
premises;
wenzelm@8184
   698
wenzelm@10003
   699
* Isar/Pure: scalable support for case-analysis type proofs: new
wenzelm@10003
   700
'case' language element refers to local contexts symbolically, as
wenzelm@10003
   701
produced by certain proof methods; internally, case names are attached
wenzelm@10003
   702
to theorems as "tags";
wenzelm@8440
   703
wenzelm@10003
   704
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'hide' removes declarations from
wenzelm@9330
   705
class/type/const name spaces;
wenzelm@9330
   706
wenzelm@10003
   707
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'defs' supports option "(overloaded)" to
wenzelm@9330
   708
indicate potential overloading;
wenzelm@9330
   709
wenzelm@10003
   710
* Isar/Pure: changed syntax of local blocks from {{ }} to { };
wenzelm@8621
   711
wenzelm@10003
   712
* Isar/Pure: syntax of sorts made 'inner', i.e. have to write
wenzelm@10003
   713
"{a,b,c}" instead of {a,b,c};
wenzelm@9011
   714
wenzelm@10003
   715
* Isar/Pure now provides its own version of intro/elim/dest
wenzelm@10003
   716
attributes; useful for building new logics, but beware of confusion
wenzelm@10003
   717
with the version in Provers/classical;
wenzelm@9612
   718
wenzelm@10003
   719
* Isar/Pure: the local context of (non-atomic) goals is provided via
wenzelm@10003
   720
case name 'antecedent';
wenzelm@8440
   721
wenzelm@10003
   722
* Isar/Pure: removed obsolete 'transfer' attribute (transfer of thms
wenzelm@10003
   723
to the current context is now done automatically);
wenzelm@9383
   724
wenzelm@10003
   725
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'method_setup' provides a simple interface
wenzelm@10003
   726
for definining proof methods in ML;
wenzelm@9612
   727
wenzelm@10003
   728
* Isar/Provers: intro/elim/dest attributes changed; renamed
wenzelm@9941
   729
intro/intro!/intro!! flags to intro!/intro/intro? (INCOMPATIBILITY, in
wenzelm@9941
   730
most cases, one should have to change intro!! to intro? only);
wenzelm@9941
   731
replaced "delrule" by "rule del";
wenzelm@8283
   732
wenzelm@10003
   733
* Isar/Provers: new 'hypsubst' method, plain 'subst' method and
wenzelm@10003
   734
'symmetric' attribute (the latter supercedes [RS sym]);
wenzelm@10003
   735
wenzelm@10003
   736
* Isar/Provers: splitter support (via 'split' attribute and 'simp'
wenzelm@10003
   737
method modifier); 'simp' method: 'only:' modifier removes loopers as
wenzelm@10003
   738
well (including splits);
wenzelm@10003
   739
wenzelm@10003
   740
* Isar/Provers: Simplifier and Classical methods now support all kind
wenzelm@10003
   741
of modifiers used in the past, including 'cong', 'iff', etc.
wenzelm@10003
   742
wenzelm@10003
   743
* Isar/Provers: added 'fastsimp' and 'clarsimp' methods (combination
wenzelm@10003
   744
of Simplifier and Classical reasoner);
wenzelm@10003
   745
wenzelm@10003
   746
* Isar/HOL: new proof method 'cases' and improved version of 'induct'
wenzelm@10003
   747
now support named cases; major packages (inductive, datatype, primrec,
wenzelm@10003
   748
recdef) support case names and properly name parameters;
wenzelm@9612
   749
wenzelm@10003
   750
* Isar/HOL: new transitivity rules for substitution in inequalities --
wenzelm@10003
   751
monotonicity conditions are extracted to be proven at end of
wenzelm@10003
   752
calculations;
wenzelm@10003
   753
wenzelm@10003
   754
* Isar/HOL: removed 'case_split' thm binding, should use 'cases' proof
wenzelm@10003
   755
method anyway;
wenzelm@10003
   756
wenzelm@10003
   757
* Isar/HOL: removed old expand_if = split_if; theorems if_splits =
wenzelm@10003
   758
split_if split_if_asm; datatype package provides theorems foo.splits =
wenzelm@10003
   759
foo.split foo.split_asm for each datatype;
wenzelm@10003
   760
wenzelm@10003
   761
* Isar/HOL: tuned inductive package, rename "intrs" to "intros"
wenzelm@10003
   762
(potential INCOMPATIBILITY), emulation of mk_cases feature for proof
wenzelm@10003
   763
scripts: new 'inductive_cases' command and 'ind_cases' method; (Note:
wenzelm@10003
   764
use "(cases (simplified))" method in proper proof texts);
wenzelm@10003
   765
wenzelm@10003
   766
* Isar/HOL: added global 'arith_split' attribute for 'arith' method;
wenzelm@10003
   767
wenzelm@10003
   768
* Isar: names of theorems etc. may be natural numbers as well;
wenzelm@10003
   769
wenzelm@10003
   770
* Isar: 'pr' command: optional arguments for goals_limit and
wenzelm@9724
   771
ProofContext.prems_limit; no longer prints theory contexts, but only
wenzelm@9724
   772
proof states;
wenzelm@8487
   773
wenzelm@10003
   774
* Isar: diagnostic commands 'pr', 'thm', 'prop', 'term', 'typ' admit
wenzelm@8518
   775
additional print modes to be specified; e.g. "pr(latex)" will print
wenzelm@8518
   776
proof state according to the Isabelle LaTeX style;
wenzelm@8487
   777
wenzelm@10003
   778
* Isar: improved support for emulating tactic scripts, including proof
wenzelm@9612
   779
methods 'rule_tac' etc., 'cut_tac', 'thin_tac', 'subgoal_tac',
wenzelm@9612
   780
'rename_tac', 'rotate_tac', 'tactic', and 'case_tac' / 'induct_tac'
wenzelm@9612
   781
(for HOL datatypes);
wenzelm@8534
   782
wenzelm@10003
   783
* Isar: simplified (more robust) goal selection of proof methods: 1st
wenzelm@10003
   784
goal, all goals, or explicit goal specifier (tactic emulation); thus
wenzelm@10003
   785
'proof method scripts' have to be in depth-first order;
wenzelm@8673
   786
wenzelm@10003
   787
* Isar: tuned 'let' syntax: replaced 'as' keyword by 'and';
wenzelm@8729
   788
wenzelm@10003
   789
* Isar: removed 'help' command, which hasn't been too helpful anyway;
wenzelm@10003
   790
should instead use individual commands for printing items
wenzelm@10003
   791
(print_commands, print_methods etc.);
wenzelm@9224
   792
wenzelm@10003
   793
* Isar: added 'nothing' --- the empty list of theorems;

wenzelm@10003
   828
anti-quotations -- basically a generalized version of de-Bruijn
wenzelm@10003
   829
representation; very useful in avoiding lifting of operations;
wenzelm@8848
   830
wenzelm@9612
   831
* HOL/record: added general record equality rule to simpset; fixed
wenzelm@9612
   832
select-update simplification procedure to handle extended records as
wenzelm@9612
   833
well; admit "r" as field name;
paulson@9542
   834
paulson@8967
   835
* HOL: 0 is now overloaded over the new sort "zero", allowing its use with
paulson@8967
   836
other numeric types and also as the identity of groups, rings, etc.;
paulson@8967
   837
paulson@8967
   838
* HOL: new axclass plus_ac0 for addition with the AC-laws and 0 as identity.
paulson@8967
   839
Types nat and int belong to this axclass;
paulson@8967
   840
wenzelm@10003
   841
* HOL: greatly improved simplification involving numerals of type nat, int, real:
paulson@8788
   842
   (i + #8 + j) = Suc k simplifies to  #7 + (i + j) = k
paulson@8832
   843
   i*j + k + j*#3*i     simplifies to  #4*(i*j) + k
paulson@8832
   844
  two terms #m*u and #n*u are replaced by #(m+n)*u
paulson@8832
   845
    (where #m, #n and u can implicitly be 1; this is simproc combine_numerals)
paulson@8832
   846
  and the term/formula #m*u+x ~~ #n*u+y simplifies simplifies to #(m-n)+x ~~ y
paulson@8832
   847
    or x ~~ #(n-m)+y, where ~~ is one of = < <= or - (simproc cancel_numerals);
paulson@8736
   848
wenzelm@10003
   849
* HOL: meson_tac is available (previously in ex/meson.ML); it is a
wenzelm@10003
   850
powerful prover for predicate logic but knows nothing of clasets; see
wenzelm@10003
   851
ex/mesontest.ML and ex/mesontest2.ML for example applications;
paulson@9835
   852
wenzelm@8848
   853
* HOL: new version of "case_tac" subsumes both boolean case split and
wenzelm@8440
   854
"exhaust_tac" on datatypes; INCOMPATIBILITY: exhaust_tac no longer
wenzelm@8518
   855
exists, may define val exhaust_tac = case_tac for ad-hoc portability;
wenzelm@8440
   856
wenzelm@8848
   857
* HOL: simplification no longer dives into case-expressions: only the
wenzelm@10129
   858
selector expression is simplified, but not the remaining arms; to
wenzelm@10129
   859
enable full simplification of case-expressions for datatype t, you may
wenzelm@10129
   860
remove t.weak_case_cong from the simpset, either globally (Delcongs
wenzelm@10129
   861
[thm"t.weak_case_cong"];) or locally (delcongs [...]).
nipkow@8603
   862
wenzelm@8848
   863
* HOL/recdef: the recursion equations generated by 'recdef' for
wenzelm@8848
   864
function 'f' are now called f.simps instead of f.rules; if all
wenzelm@8848
   865
termination conditions are proved automatically, these simplification
wenzelm@8848
   866
rules are added to the simpset, as in primrec; rules may be named
wenzelm@8848
   867
individually as well, resulting in a separate list of theorems for
wenzelm@8848
   868
each equation;
wenzelm@8848
   869
wenzelm@9489
   870
* HOL/While is a new theory that provides a while-combinator. It
wenzelm@9489
   871
permits the definition of tail-recursive functions without the
wenzelm@9489
   872
provision of a termination measure. The latter is necessary once the
wenzelm@9489
   873
invariant proof rule for while is applied.
nipkow@9457
   874
wenzelm@10003
   875
* HOL: new (overloaded) notation for the set of elements below/above
wenzelm@10003
   876
some element: {..u}, {..u(}, {l..}, {)l..}. See theory SetInterval.
nipkow@8925
   877
wenzelm@8848
   878
* HOL: theorems impI, allI, ballI bound as "strip";
wenzelm@8848
   879
wenzelm@10003
   880
* HOL: new tactic induct_thm_tac: thm -> string -> int -> tactic
nipkow@9746
   881
induct_tac th "x1 ... xn" expects th to have a conclusion of the form
nipkow@9746
   882
P v1 ... vn and abbreviates res_inst_tac [("v1","x1"),...,("vn","xn")] th;
nipkow@9746
   883
wenzelm@10003
   884
* HOL/Real: "rabs" replaced by overloaded "abs" function;
nipkow@9737
   885
wenzelm@10003
   886
* HOL: theory Sexp now in HOL/Induct examples (it used to be part of
wenzelm@10003
   887
main HOL, but was unused);
nipkow@8626
   888
wenzelm@10003
   889
* HOL: fewer consts declared as global (e.g. have to refer to
wenzelm@10003
   890
"Lfp.lfp" instead of "lfp" internally; affects ML packages only);
wenzelm@8887
   891
wenzelm@10003
   892
* HOL: tuned AST representation of nested pairs, avoiding bogus output
wenzelm@10003
   893
in case of overlap with user translations (e.g. judgements over
wenzelm@10003
   894
tuples); (note that the underlying logical represenation is still
wenzelm@10003
   895
bogus);

*** ZF ***
paulson@9542
   899
wenzelm@10003
   900
* ZF: simplification automatically cancels common terms in arithmetic
wenzelm@10003
   901
expressions over nat and int;
paulson@9542
   902
wenzelm@10003
   903
* ZF: new treatment of nat to minimize type-checking: all operators
wenzelm@10003
   904
coerce their operands to a natural number using the function natify,
wenzelm@10003
   905
making the algebraic laws unconditional;
paulson@9542
   906
wenzelm@10003
   907
* ZF: as above, for int: operators coerce their operands to an integer
wenzelm@10003
   908
using the function intify;
paulson@9542
   909
wenzelm@10003
   910
* ZF: the integer library now contains many of the usual laws for the
wenzelm@10003
   911
orderings, including $<=, and monotonicity laws for $+ and $*;
paulson@9542
   912
wenzelm@10003
   913
* ZF: new example ZF/ex/NatSum to demonstrate integer arithmetic
wenzelm@10003
   914
simplification;
paulson@9388
   915
wenzelm@10003
   916
* FOL and ZF: AddIffs now available, giving theorems of the form P<->Q
wenzelm@10003
   917
to the simplifier and classical reasoner simultaneously;

wenzelm@10003
   922
* Provers: blast_tac now handles actual object-logic rules as
wenzelm@10003
   923
assumptions; note that auto_tac uses blast_tac internally as well;
wenzelm@10003
   924
wenzelm@10003
   925
* Provers: new functions rulify/rulify_no_asm: thm -> thm for turning
wenzelm@10003
   926
outer -->/All/Ball into ==>/!!; qed_spec_mp now uses rulify_no_asm;
wenzelm@10003
   927
wenzelm@9941
   928
* Provers: delrules now handles destruct rules as well (no longer need
wenzelm@9941
   929
explicit make_elim);
wenzelm@9941
   930
wenzelm@10003
   931
* Provers: Blast_tac now warns of and ignores "weak elimination rules" e.g.
wenzelm@10003
   932
  [| inj ?f;          ?f ?x = ?f ?y; ?x = ?y ==> ?W |] ==> ?W
wenzelm@10003
   933
use instead the strong form,
wenzelm@10003
   934
  [| inj ?f; ~ ?W ==> ?f ?x = ?f ?y; ?x = ?y ==> ?W |] ==> ?W
wenzelm@10003
   935
in HOL, FOL and ZF the function cla_make_elim will create such rules
wenzelm@10003
   936
from destruct-rules;
wenzelm@9489
   937
wenzelm@9709
   938
* Provers: Simplifier.easy_setup provides a fast path to basic
wenzelm@9709
   939
Simplifier setup for new object-logics;
wenzelm@9709
   940
wenzelm@9709
   941
* Pure: AST translation rules no longer require constant head on LHS;
wenzelm@9349
   942
wenzelm@9709
   943
* Pure: improved name spaces: ambiguous output is qualified; support
wenzelm@9709
   944
for hiding of names;
wenzelm@8729
   945
wenzelm@10003
   946
* system: smart setup of canonical ML_HOME, ISABELLE_INTERFACE, and
wenzelm@10003
   947
XSYMBOL_HOME; no longer need to do manual configuration in most
wenzelm@10003
   948
situations;
wenzelm@10003
   949
wenzelm@9709
   950
* system: compression of ML heaps images may now be controlled via -c
wenzelm@9709
   951
option of isabelle and isatool usedir (currently only observed by
wenzelm@9709
   952
Poly/ML);
wenzelm@8358
   953
wenzelm@9981
   954
* system: isatool installfonts may handle X-Symbol fonts as well (very
wenzelm@9981
   955
useful for remote X11);
wenzelm@9981
   956
wenzelm@9709
   957
* system: provide TAGS file for Isabelle sources;
wenzelm@9052
   958
wenzelm@9288
   959
* ML: infix 'OF' is a version of 'MRS' with more appropriate argument
wenzelm@9288
   960
order;
wenzelm@9288
   961
wenzelm@8994
   962
* ML: renamed flags Syntax.trace_norm_ast to Syntax.trace_ast; global
wenzelm@8994
   963
timing flag supersedes proof_timing and Toplevel.trace;
wenzelm@8994
   964
wenzelm@10003
   965
* ML: new combinators |>> and |>>> for incremental transformations
wenzelm@10003
   966
with secondary results (e.g. certain theory extensions):
wenzelm@10003
   967
wenzelm@9330
   968
* ML: PureThy.add_defs gets additional argument to indicate potential
wenzelm@9330
   969
overloading (usually false);
wenzelm@9330
   970
wenzelm@10003
   971
* ML: PureThy.add_thms/add_axioms/add_defs now return theorems as
wenzelm@10003
   972

paulson@6922
   981
* HOL: The THEN and ELSE parts of conditional expressions (if P then x else y)
paulson@6922
   982
are no longer simplified.  (This allows the simplifier to unfold recursive
paulson@6922
   983
functional programs.)  To restore the old behaviour, declare
wenzelm@7215
   984
wenzelm@7215
   985
    Delcongs [if_weak_cong];
paulson@6922
   986
wenzelm@6269
   987
* HOL: Removed the obsolete syntax "Compl A"; use -A for set
wenzelm@6269
   988
complement;
paulson@5931
   989
wenzelm@6269
   990
* HOL: the predicate "inj" is now defined by translation to "inj_on";
paulson@6174
   991
berghofe@7847
   992
* HOL/datatype: mutual_induct_tac no longer exists --
berghofe@7847
   993
  use induct_tac "x_1 ... x_n" instead of mutual_induct_tac ["x_1", ..., "x_n"]
berghofe@7847
   994
wenzelm@6386
   995
* HOL/typedef: fixed type inference for representing set; type
wenzelm@6386
   996
arguments now have to occur explicitly on the rhs as type constraints;
wenzelm@6386
   997
wenzelm@6269
   998
* ZF: The con_defs part of an inductive definition may no longer refer
wenzelm@6269
   999
to constants declared in the same theory;
nipkow@6057
  1000
wenzelm@6269
  1001
* HOL, ZF: the function mk_cases, generated by the inductive
wenzelm@6269
  1002
definition package, has lost an argument.  To simplify its result, it
wenzelm@6269
  1003
uses the default simpset instead of a supplied list of theorems.
paulson@6141
  1004
wenzelm@7215
  1005
* HOL/List: the constructors of type list are now Nil and Cons;
wenzelm@7215
  1006
nipkow@7619
  1007
* Simplifier: the type of the infix ML functions
wenzelm@8729
  1008
        setSSolver addSSolver setSolver addSolver
nipkow@7619
  1009
is now  simpset * solver -> simpset  where `solver' is a new abstract type
nipkow@7619
  1010
for packaging solvers. A solver is created via
wenzelm@8729
  1011
        mk_solver: string -> (thm list -> int -> tactic) -> solver
nipkow@7619
  1012
where the string argument is only a comment.

wenzelm@6343
  1017
* Provers/Arith/fast_lin_arith.ML contains a functor for creating a
wenzelm@6343
  1018
decision procedure for linear arithmetic. Currently it is used for
wenzelm@7593
  1019
types `nat', `int', and `real' in HOL (see below); it can, should and
wenzelm@7593
  1020
will be instantiated for other types and logics as well.
paulson@6069
  1021
nipkow@7324
  1022
* The simplifier now accepts rewrite rules with flexible heads, eg
nipkow@7324
  1023
     hom ?f ==> ?f(?x+?y) = ?f ?x + ?f ?y
nipkow@7324
  1024
  They are applied like any rule with a non-pattern lhs, i.e. by first-order
nipkow@7324
  1025
  matching.

wenzelm@7215
  1031
tactical theorem proving; together with the ProofGeneral/isar user
wenzelm@7215
  1032
interface it offers an interactive environment for developing human
wenzelm@7215
  1033

src/HOL/Isar_examples and http://isabelle.in.tum.de/Isar/
wenzelm@7886
  1036
wenzelm@9612
  1037
* improved and simplified presentation of theories: better HTML markup
wenzelm@9612
  1038
(including colors), graph views in several sizes; isatool usedir now
wenzelm@9612
  1039
provides a proper interface for user theories (via -P option); actual

  1040
document preparation based on (PDF)LaTeX is available as well (for

new-style theories only); see isatool doc system for more information;
wenzelm@7215
  1042
wenzelm@7252
  1043

wenzelm@7986
  1044
Isabelle/Isar;
wenzelm@7215
  1045
wenzelm@7791
  1046

wenzelm@7791
  1047
using the graph browser tool;
wenzelm@7791
  1048
wenzelm@6751
  1049
* Isabelle manuals now also available as PDF;
wenzelm@6751
  1050
wenzelm@6449
  1051
* theory loader rewritten from scratch (may not be fully
wenzelm@6449
  1052
bug-compatible); old loadpath variable has been replaced by show_path,
wenzelm@6671
  1053
add_path, del_path, reset_path functions; new operations such as
wenzelm@7593
  1054
update_thy, touch_thy, remove_thy, use/update_thy_only (see also
wenzelm@7593
  1055
isatool doc ref);
wenzelm@6449
  1056
wenzelm@7215

* improved isatool install: option -k creates KDE application icon,
wenzelm@7215
  1058
option -p DIR installs standalone binaries;
wenzelm@7215
  1059
wenzelm@7215
  1060

more robust handling of platform specific ML images for SML/NJ;
wenzelm@7215
  1062
wenzelm@7886

** HOL arithmetic **
wenzelm@7215
  1109
wenzelm@6343
  1110
* There are now decision procedures for linear arithmetic over nat and
wenzelm@6343
  1111
int:
nipkow@6131
  1112
wenzelm@6343
  1113
1. arith_tac copes with arbitrary formulae involving `=', `<', `<=',
wenzelm@6343
  1114
`+', `-', `Suc', `min', `max' and numerical constants; other subterms
wenzelm@6343
  1115
are treated as atomic; subformulae not involving type `nat' or `int'
wenzelm@6343
  1116
are ignored; quantified subformulae are ignored unless they are
wenzelm@6343
  1117
positive universal or negative existential. The tactic has to be
wenzelm@6343
  1118
invoked by hand and can be a little bit slow. In particular, the
wenzelm@6343
  1119
running time is exponential in the number of occurrences of `min' and
wenzelm@6343
  1120
`max', and `-' on `nat'.
nipkow@6131
  1121
wenzelm@6343
  1122
2. fast_arith_tac is a cut-down version of arith_tac: it only takes
wenzelm@6343
  1123
(negated) (in)equalities among the premises and the conclusion into
wenzelm@6343
  1124
account (i.e. no compound formulae) and does not know about `min' and
wenzelm@6343
  1125
`max', and `-' on `nat'. It is fast and is used automatically by the
wenzelm@6343
  1126
simplifier.
nipkow@6131
  1127
wenzelm@6343
  1128
NB: At the moment, these decision procedures do not cope with mixed
wenzelm@6343
  1129
nat/int formulae where the two parts interact, such as `m < n ==>
wenzelm@6343
  1130
int(m) < int(n)'.
oheimb@6028
  1131
wenzelm@7215
  1132
* HOL/Numeral provides a generic theory of numerals (encoded
wenzelm@7313
  1133
efficiently as bit strings); setup for types nat/int/real is in place;
wenzelm@7215
  1134
INCOMPATIBILITY: since numeral syntax is now polymorphic, rather than
wenzelm@7215
  1135
int, existing theories and proof scripts may require a few additional
wenzelm@7215
  1136
type constraints;
wenzelm@7215
  1137
wenzelm@7215
  1138
* integer division and remainder can now be performed on constant
wenzelm@7215
  1139
arguments;
paulson@7157
  1140
wenzelm@7215
  1141
* many properties of integer multiplication, division and remainder
wenzelm@7215
  1142
are now available;
paulson@6922
  1143
paulson@7287
  1144
* An interface to the Stanford Validity Checker (SVC) is available through the
paulson@7287
  1145
tactic svc_tac.  Propositional tautologies and theorems of linear arithmetic
paulson@7287
  1146
are proved automatically.  SVC must be installed separately, and its results
paulson@7287
  1147
must be TAKEN ON TRUST (Isabelle does not check the proofs, but tags any
paulson@7287
  1148
invocation of the underlying oracle).  For SVC see
paulson@7444
  1149
  http://verify.stanford.edu/SVC
paulson@6922

* HOL/Real/HahnBanach: the Hahn-Banach theorem for real vector spaces
wenzelm@7595
  1157
(in Isabelle/Isar) -- by Gertrud Bauer;
wenzelm@7595
  1158
wenzelm@7691
  1159
* HOL/BCV: generic model of bytecode verification, i.e. data-flow
wenzelm@7691
  1160
analysis for assembly languages with subtypes;
wenzelm@7691
  1161
wenzelm@6278
  1162
* HOL/TLA (Lamport's Temporal Logic of Actions): major reorganization
wenzelm@6278
  1163
-- avoids syntactic ambiguities and treats state, transition, and
wenzelm@6278
  1164
temporal levels more uniformly; introduces INCOMPATIBILITIES due to
wenzelm@6278
  1165
changed syntax and (many) tactics;
wenzelm@6278
  1166
wenzelm@7791
  1167
* HOL/inductive: Now also handles more general introduction rules such
wenzelm@7791
  1168
  as "ALL y. (y, x) : r --> y : acc r ==> x : acc r"; monotonicity
wenzelm@7791
  1169
  theorems are now maintained within the theory (maintained via the
wenzelm@7791
  1170
  "mono" attribute);
berghofe@7780
  1171
wenzelm@7238
  1172
* HOL/datatype: Now also handles arbitrarily branching datatypes
wenzelm@7238
  1173
  (using function types) such as
wenzelm@7238
  1174
wenzelm@7238
  1175
  datatype 'a tree = Atom 'a | Branch "nat => 'a tree"
berghofe@7047
  1176
wenzelm@7326
  1177
* HOL/record: record_simproc (part of the default simpset) takes care
wenzelm@7326
  1178
of selectors applied to updated records; record_split_tac is no longer
wenzelm@7327
  1179
part of the default claset; update_defs may now be removed from the
wenzelm@7327
  1180
simpset in many cases; COMPATIBILITY: old behavior achieved by
wenzelm@7326
  1181
wenzelm@7326
  1182
  claset_ref () := claset() addSWrapper record_split_wrapper;
wenzelm@7326
  1183
  Delsimprocs [record_simproc]
wenzelm@7326
  1184
wenzelm@6386
  1185
* HOL/typedef: fixed type inference for representing set; type
wenzelm@6386
  1186
arguments now have to occur explicitly on the rhs as type constraints;
wenzelm@6386
  1187
paulson@7287
  1188
* HOL/recdef (TFL): 'congs' syntax now expects comma separated list of theorem
paulson@7287
  1189
names rather than an ML expression;
paulson@7287
  1190
paulson@7287
  1191
* HOL/defer_recdef (TFL): like recdef but the well-founded relation can be
paulson@7287
  1192
supplied later.  Program schemes can be defined, such as
paulson@7287
  1193
    "While B C s = (if B s then While B C (C s) else s)"
paulson@7287
  1194
where the well-founded relation can be chosen after B and C have been given.
wenzelm@6563
  1195
wenzelm@7215
  1196
* HOL/List: the constructors of type list are now Nil and Cons;
wenzelm@7215
  1197
INCOMPATIBILITY: while [] and infix # syntax is still there, of
wenzelm@7215
  1198
course, ML tools referring to List.list.op # etc. have to be adapted;
wenzelm@7215
  1199
wenzelm@7238
  1200
* HOL_quantifiers flag superseded by "HOL" print mode, which is
wenzelm@7238
  1201
disabled by default; run isabelle with option -m HOL to get back to
wenzelm@7238
  1202
the original Gordon/HOL-style output;
wenzelm@7238
  1203
wenzelm@7238
  1204
* HOL/Ord.thy: new bounded quantifier syntax (input only): ALL x<y. P,
wenzelm@7238
  1205
ALL x<=y. P, EX x<y. P, EX x<=y. P;
wenzelm@7238
  1206
wenzelm@7238
  1207
* HOL basic syntax simplified (more orthogonal): all variants of
wenzelm@7238
  1208
All/Ex now support plain / symbolic / HOL notation; plain syntax for
wenzelm@7238
  1209
Eps operator is provided as well: "SOME x. P[x]";
wenzelm@7238
  1210
berghofe@7320
  1211
* HOL/Sum.thy: sum_case has been moved to HOL/Datatype;
wenzelm@7261
  1212
wenzelm@7280
  1213
* HOL/Univ.thy: infix syntax <*>, <+>, <**>, <+> eliminated and made
wenzelm@7280
  1214
thus available for user theories;
wenzelm@7280
  1215
wenzelm@7300
  1216
* HOLCF/IOA/Sequents: renamed 'Cons' to 'Consq' to avoid clash with
wenzelm@7300
  1217
HOL/List; hardly an INCOMPATIBILITY since '>>' syntax is used all the
wenzelm@7300
  1218
time;
wenzelm@7300
  1219
wenzelm@7986
  1220
* HOL: new tactic smp_tac: int -> int -> tactic, which applies spec
wenzelm@7986

paulson@7113
  1228
paulson@7113
  1229
* the simplifier is now installed

paulson@6064
  1238
* new primrec section allows primitive recursive functions to be given
wenzelm@6269
  1239
directly (as in HOL) over datatypes and the natural numbers;
paulson@6064
  1240
wenzelm@6269
  1241
* new tactics induct_tac and exhaust_tac for induction (or case
wenzelm@6269
  1242
analysis) over datatypes and the natural numbers;
paulson@6064
  1243
paulson@6064
  1244
* the datatype declaration of type T now defines the recursor T_rec;
paulson@6064
  1245
paulson@6141
  1246
* simplification automatically does freeness reasoning for datatype
wenzelm@6269
  1247
constructors;
paulson@6141
  1248
wenzelm@6269
  1249
* automatic type-inference, with AddTCs command to insert new
wenzelm@6269
  1250
type-checking rules;
paulson@6155
  1251
wenzelm@6269
  1252
* datatype introduction rules are now added as Safe Introduction rules
wenzelm@6269
  1253
to the claset;
paulson@6155
  1254
wenzelm@6269
  1255
* the syntax "if P then x else y" is now available in addition to
wenzelm@6269
  1256
if(P,x,y);

  1262
wenzelm@7420
  1263
* structures Vartab / Termtab (instances of TableFun) offer efficient
wenzelm@7420
  1264
tables indexed by indexname_ord / term_ord (compatible with aconv);
wenzelm@7420
  1265
wenzelm@6386
  1266
* AxClass.axclass_tac lost the theory argument;
wenzelm@6386
  1267
wenzelm@6343
  1268
* tuned current_goals_markers semantics: begin / end goal avoids
wenzelm@6343
  1269
printing empty lines;
wenzelm@6343
  1270
wenzelm@6343
  1271
* removed prs and prs_fn hook, which was broken because it did not
wenzelm@6343
  1272
include \n in its semantics, forcing writeln to add one
wenzelm@6343
  1273
uncoditionally; replaced prs_fn by writeln_fn; consider std_output:
wenzelm@6343
  1274
string -> unit if you really want to output text without newline;
wenzelm@6343
  1275
wenzelm@6343
  1276
* Symbol.output subject to print mode; INCOMPATIBILITY: defaults to
wenzelm@6343
  1277
plain output, interface builders may have to enable 'isabelle_font'
wenzelm@6343
  1278
mode to get Isabelle font glyphs as before;
wenzelm@6343
  1279
wenzelm@6343
  1280
* refined token_translation interface; INCOMPATIBILITY: output length
wenzelm@6343
  1281
now of type real instead of int;
wenzelm@6343
  1282
wenzelm@7196
  1283
* theory loader actions may be traced via new ThyInfo.add_hook
wenzelm@7196
  1284
interface (see src/Pure/Thy/thy_info.ML); example application: keep
wenzelm@7196
  1285
your own database of information attached to *whole* theories -- as
wenzelm@7196
  1286
opposed to intra-theory data slots offered via TheoryDataFun;
wenzelm@7196
  1287
wenzelm@7647
  1288
* proper handling of dangling sort hypotheses (at last!);
wenzelm@7647
  1289
Thm.strip_shyps and Drule.strip_shyps_warning take care of removing
wenzelm@7647
  1290
extra sort hypotheses that can be witnessed from the type signature;
wenzelm@7986
  1291
the force_strip_shyps flag is gone, any remaining shyps are simply
wenzelm@7986
  1292
left in the theorem (with a warning issued by strip_shyps_warning);

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES (see below for more details) ***
wenzelm@4842
  1300
wenzelm@5726
  1301
* several changes of automated proof tools;
wenzelm@5373
  1302
wenzelm@5726
  1303
* HOL: major changes to the inductive and datatype packages, including
wenzelm@5726
  1304
some minor incompatibilities of theory syntax;
berghofe@5214
  1305
wenzelm@5726
  1306
* HOL: renamed r^-1 to 'converse' from 'inverse'; 'inj_onto' is now
wenzelm@5217
  1307
called `inj_on';
paulson@5160
  1308
nipkow@5275
  1309
* HOL: removed duplicate thms in Arith:
nipkow@5275
  1310
  less_imp_add_less  should be replaced by  trans_less_add1
nipkow@5275
  1311
  le_imp_add_le      should be replaced by  trans_le_add1
paulson@5160
  1312
wenzelm@5726
  1313
* HOL: unary minus is now overloaded (new type constraints may be
wenzelm@5726
  1314
required);
paulson@5490
  1315
wenzelm@5726
  1316
* HOL and ZF: unary minus for integers is now #- instead of #~.  In
wenzelm@5726
  1317
ZF, expressions such as n#-1 must be changed to n#- 1, since #-1 is
wenzelm@5726
  1318
now taken as an integer constant.
paulson@5541
  1319
wenzelm@5726
  1320
* Pure: ML function 'theory_of' renamed to 'theory';
wenzelm@5397
  1321
wenzelm@5363
  1322
wenzelm@5127
  1323
*** Proof tools ***
nipkow@4880
  1324
nipkow@5657
  1325
* Simplifier:
nipkow@5657
  1326
  1. Asm_full_simp_tac is now more aggressive.
nipkow@5657
  1327
     1. It will sometimes reorient premises if that increases their power to
nipkow@5657
  1328
        simplify.
nipkow@5657
  1329
     2. It does no longer proceed strictly from left to right but may also
nipkow@5657
  1330
        rotate premises to achieve further simplification.
nipkow@5657
  1331
     For compatibility reasons there is now Asm_lr_simp_tac which is like the
nipkow@5657
  1332
     old Asm_full_simp_tac in that it does not rotate premises.
nipkow@5657
  1333
  2. The simplifier now knows a little bit about nat-arithmetic.
nipkow@4880
  1334
wenzelm@5127
  1335
* Classical reasoner: wrapper mechanism for the classical reasoner now
wenzelm@5127
  1336
allows for selected deletion of wrappers, by introduction of names for
wenzelm@5127
  1337
wrapper functionals.  This implies that addbefore, addSbefore,
wenzelm@5127
  1338
addaltern, and addSaltern now take a pair (name, tactic) as argument,
wenzelm@5127
  1339
and that adding two tactics with the same name overwrites the first
wenzelm@5127
  1340
one (emitting a warning).
oheimb@4824
  1341
  type wrapper = (int -> tactic) -> (int -> tactic)
oheimb@4649
  1342
  setWrapper, setSWrapper, compWrapper and compSWrapper are replaced by
oheimb@4824
  1343
  addWrapper, addSWrapper: claset * (string * wrapper) -> claset
oheimb@4824
  1344
  delWrapper, delSWrapper: claset *  string            -> claset
oheimb@4649
  1345
  getWrapper is renamed to appWrappers, getSWrapper to appSWrappers;
oheimb@4649
  1346
wenzelm@5705
  1347
* Classical reasoner: addbefore/addSbefore now have APPEND/ORELSE
wenzelm@5726
  1348
semantics; addbefore now affects only the unsafe part of step_tac
wenzelm@5726
  1349
etc.; this affects addss/auto_tac/force_tac, so EXISTING PROOFS MAY
wenzelm@5726
  1350
FAIL, but proofs should be fixable easily, e.g. by replacing Auto_tac
wenzelm@5726
  1351
by Force_tac;
oheimb@5524
  1352
wenzelm@5726
  1353
* Classical reasoner: setwrapper to setWrapper and compwrapper to
wenzelm@5726
  1354
compWrapper; added safe wrapper (and access functions for it);
oheimb@5524
  1355
wenzelm@5127
  1356
* HOL/split_all_tac is now much faster and fails if there is nothing
wenzelm@5726
  1357
to split.  Some EXISTING PROOFS MAY REQUIRE ADAPTION because the order
wenzelm@5726
  1358
and the names of the automatically generated variables have changed.
wenzelm@5726
  1359
split_all_tac has moved within claset() from unsafe wrappers to safe
wenzelm@5726
  1360
wrappers, which means that !!-bound variables are split much more
wenzelm@5726
  1361
aggressively, and safe_tac and clarify_tac now split such variables.
wenzelm@5726
  1362
If this splitting is not appropriate, use delSWrapper "split_all_tac".
wenzelm@5726
  1363
Note: the same holds for record_split_tac, which does the job of
wenzelm@5726
  1364
split_all_tac for record fields.
wenzelm@5127
  1365
wenzelm@5726
  1366
* HOL/Simplifier: Rewrite rules for case distinctions can now be added
wenzelm@5726
  1367
permanently to the default simpset using Addsplits just like
wenzelm@5726
  1368
Addsimps. They can be removed via Delsplits just like
wenzelm@5726
  1369
Delsimps. Lower-case versions are also available.
wenzelm@5127
  1370
wenzelm@5726
  1371
* HOL/Simplifier: The rule split_if is now part of the default
wenzelm@5726
  1372
simpset. This means that the simplifier will eliminate all occurrences
wenzelm@5726
  1373
of if-then-else in the conclusion of a goal. To prevent this, you can
wenzelm@5726
  1374
either remove split_if completely from the default simpset by
wenzelm@5726
  1375
`Delsplits [split_if]' or remove it in a specific call of the
wenzelm@5726
  1376
simplifier using `... delsplits [split_if]'.  You can also add/delete
wenzelm@5726
  1377
other case splitting rules to/from the default simpset: every datatype
wenzelm@5726
  1378
generates suitable rules `split_t_case' and `split_t_case_asm' (where
wenzelm@5726
  1379
t is the name of the datatype).
wenzelm@5127
  1380
wenzelm@5726
  1381
* Classical reasoner / Simplifier combination: new force_tac (and
wenzelm@5127
  1382
derivatives Force_tac, force) combines rewriting and classical
wenzelm@5127
  1383
reasoning (and whatever other tools) similarly to auto_tac, but is
wenzelm@5726
  1384
aimed to solve the given subgoal completely.

wenzelm@5127
  1388
wenzelm@5217
  1389
* new top-level commands `Goal' and `Goalw' that improve upon `goal'
wenzelm@5127
  1390
and `goalw': the theory is no longer needed as an explicit argument -
wenzelm@5127
  1391
the current theory context is used; assumptions are no longer returned
wenzelm@5127
  1392
at the ML-level unless one of them starts with ==> or !!; it is
wenzelm@5217
  1393
recommended to convert to these new commands using isatool fixgoal
wenzelm@5217
  1394
(backup your sources first!);
wenzelm@4842
  1395
wenzelm@5217
  1396
* new top-level commands 'thm' and 'thms' for retrieving theorems from
wenzelm@5207
  1397
the current theory context, and 'theory' to lookup stored theories;
paulson@4806
  1398
paulson@5722
  1399
* new theory section 'locale' for declaring constants, assumptions and
paulson@5722
  1400
definitions that have local scope;
paulson@5722
  1401
wenzelm@5127
  1402
* new theory section 'nonterminals' for purely syntactic types;
wenzelm@4858
  1403
wenzelm@5127
  1404
* new theory section 'setup' for generic ML setup functions
wenzelm@5127
  1405
(e.g. package initialization);
wenzelm@4869
  1406
wenzelm@5131
  1407
* the distribution now includes Isabelle icons: see
wenzelm@5131
  1408
lib/logo/isabelle-{small,tiny}.xpm;
wenzelm@5131
  1409
wenzelm@5363
  1410
* isatool install - install binaries with absolute references to
wenzelm@5363
  1411
ISABELLE_HOME/bin;
wenzelm@5363
  1412
wenzelm@5572
  1413
* isatool logo -- create instances of the Isabelle logo (as EPS);
wenzelm@5572
  1414
wenzelm@5407
  1415
* print mode 'emacs' reserved for Isamode;
wenzelm@5407
  1416
wenzelm@5726
  1417
* support multiple print (ast) translations per constant name;
wenzelm@5726
  1418
wenzelm@6925
  1419
* theorems involving oracles are now printed with a suffixed [!];

*** HOL ***
paulson@4661
  1423
wenzelm@5710
  1424
* there is now a tutorial on Isabelle/HOL (do 'isatool doc tutorial');
nipkow@5709
  1425
wenzelm@5217
  1426
* HOL/inductive package reorganized and improved: now supports mutual
paulson@5267
  1427
definitions such as
wenzelm@5217
  1428
wenzelm@5217
  1429
  inductive EVEN ODD
wenzelm@5217
  1430
    intrs
wenzelm@5217
  1431
      null "0 : EVEN"
wenzelm@5217
  1432
      oddI "n : EVEN ==> Suc n : ODD"
wenzelm@5217
  1433
      evenI "n : ODD ==> Suc n : EVEN"
wenzelm@5217
  1434
wenzelm@5217
  1435
new theorem list "elims" contains an elimination rule for each of the
wenzelm@5217
  1436
recursive sets; inductive definitions now handle disjunctive premises
wenzelm@5217
  1437
correctly (also ZF);
berghofe@5214
  1438
wenzelm@5217
  1439
INCOMPATIBILITIES: requires Inductive as an ancestor; component
wenzelm@5217
  1440
"mutual_induct" no longer exists - the induction rule is always
wenzelm@5217
  1441
contained in "induct";
wenzelm@5217
  1442
wenzelm@5217
  1443
wenzelm@5217
  1444
* HOL/datatype package re-implemented and greatly improved: now
paulson@5267
  1445
supports mutually recursive datatypes such as
wenzelm@5217
  1446
wenzelm@5217
  1447
  datatype
wenzelm@5217
  1448
    'a aexp = IF_THEN_ELSE ('a bexp) ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
  1449
            | SUM ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
  1450
            | DIFF ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
  1451
            | NUM 'a
wenzelm@5217
  1452
  and
wenzelm@5217
  1453
    'a bexp = LESS ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
  1454
            | AND ('a bexp) ('a bexp)
wenzelm@5217
  1455
            | OR ('a bexp) ('a bexp)
wenzelm@5217
  1456
paulson@5267
  1457
as well as indirectly recursive datatypes such as
berghofe@5214
  1458
wenzelm@5217
  1459
  datatype
wenzelm@5217
  1460
    ('a, 'b) term = Var 'a
wenzelm@5217
  1461
                  | App 'b ((('a, 'b) term) list)
berghofe@5214
  1462
wenzelm@5217
  1463
The new tactic  mutual_induct_tac [<var_1>, ..., <var_n>] i  performs
wenzelm@5217
  1464
induction on mutually / indirectly recursive datatypes.
wenzelm@5217
  1465
wenzelm@5217
  1466
Primrec equations are now stored in theory and can be accessed via
wenzelm@5217
  1467
<function_name>.simps.
wenzelm@5217
  1468
wenzelm@5217
  1469
INCOMPATIBILITIES:
berghofe@5214
  1470
wenzelm@5217
  1471
  - Theories using datatypes must now have theory Datatype as an
wenzelm@5217
  1472
    ancestor.
wenzelm@5217
  1473
  - The specific <typename>.induct_tac no longer exists - use the
wenzelm@5217
  1474
    generic induct_tac instead.
berghofe@5226
  1475
  - natE has been renamed to nat.exhaust - use exhaust_tac
wenzelm@5217
  1476
    instead of res_inst_tac ... natE. Note that the variable
berghofe@5226
  1477
    names in nat.exhaust differ from the names in natE, this
wenzelm@5217
  1478
    may cause some "fragile" proofs to fail.
wenzelm@5217
  1479
  - The theorems split_<typename>_case and split_<typename>_case_asm
wenzelm@5217
  1480
    have been renamed to <typename>.split and <typename>.split_asm.
wenzelm@5217
  1481
  - Since default sorts of type variables are now handled correctly,
wenzelm@5217
  1482
    some datatype definitions may have to be annotated with explicit
wenzelm@5217
  1483
    sort constraints.
wenzelm@5217
  1484
  - Primrec definitions no longer require function name and type
wenzelm@5217
  1485
    of recursive argument.
berghofe@5214
  1486
wenzelm@5217
  1487
Consider using isatool fixdatatype to adapt your theories and proof
wenzelm@5217
  1488
scripts to the new package (backup your sources first!).
wenzelm@5217
  1489
wenzelm@5217
  1490
wenzelm@5726
  1491
* HOL/record package: considerably improved implementation; now
wenzelm@5726
  1492
includes concrete syntax for record types, terms, updates; theorems
wenzelm@5726
  1493
for surjective pairing and splitting !!-bound record variables; proof
wenzelm@5726
  1494
support is as follows:
wenzelm@5726
  1495
wenzelm@5726
  1496
  1) standard conversions (selectors or updates applied to record
wenzelm@5726
  1497
constructor terms) are part of the standard simpset;
wenzelm@5726
  1498
wenzelm@5726
  1499
  2) inject equations of the form ((x, y) = (x', y')) == x=x' & y=y' are
wenzelm@5726
  1500
made part of standard simpset and claset via addIffs;
wenzelm@5726
  1501
wenzelm@5726
  1502
  3) a tactic for record field splitting (record_split_tac) is part of
wenzelm@5726
  1503
the standard claset (addSWrapper);
wenzelm@5726
  1504
wenzelm@5726
  1505
To get a better idea about these rules you may retrieve them via
wenzelm@5726
  1506
something like 'thms "foo.simps"' or 'thms "foo.iffs"', where "foo" is
wenzelm@5726
  1507
the name of your record type.
wenzelm@5726
  1508
wenzelm@5726
  1509
The split tactic 3) conceptually simplifies by the following rule:
wenzelm@5726
  1510
wenzelm@5726
  1511
  "(!!x. PROP ?P x) == (!!a b. PROP ?P (a, b))"
wenzelm@5726
  1512
wenzelm@5726
  1513
Thus any record variable that is bound by meta-all will automatically
wenzelm@5726
  1514
blow up into some record constructor term, consequently the
wenzelm@5726
  1515
simplifications of 1), 2) apply.  Thus force_tac, auto_tac etc. shall
wenzelm@5726
  1516
solve record problems automatically.
wenzelm@5726
  1517
berghofe@5214
  1518
wenzelm@5125
  1519
* reorganized the main HOL image: HOL/Integ and String loaded by
wenzelm@5125
  1520
default; theory Main includes everything;
wenzelm@5125
  1521
paulson@5650
  1522
* automatic simplification of integer sums and comparisons, using cancellation;
paulson@5650
  1523
oheimb@5526
  1524
* added option_map_eq_Some and not_Some_eq to the default simpset and claset;
wenzelm@5127
  1525
wenzelm@5127
  1526
* added disj_not1 = "(~P | Q) = (P --> Q)" to the default simpset;
wenzelm@5127
  1527
wenzelm@5127
  1528
* many new identities for unions, intersections, set difference, etc.;
wenzelm@5127
  1529
wenzelm@5127
  1530
* expand_if, expand_split, expand_sum_case and expand_nat_case are now
wenzelm@5127
  1531
called split_if, split_split, split_sum_case and split_nat_case (to go
wenzelm@5127
  1532
with add/delsplits);
wenzelm@5125
  1533
wenzelm@5127
  1534
* HOL/Prod introduces simplification procedure unit_eq_proc rewriting
wenzelm@5127
  1535
(?x::unit) = (); this is made part of the default simpset, which COULD
wenzelm@5127
  1536
MAKE EXISTING PROOFS FAIL under rare circumstances (consider
wenzelm@5207
  1537
'Delsimprocs [unit_eq_proc];' as last resort); also note that
wenzelm@5207
  1538
unit_abs_eta_conv is added in order to counter the effect of
wenzelm@5207
  1539
unit_eq_proc on (%u::unit. f u), replacing it by f rather than by
wenzelm@5207
  1540
%u.f();
wenzelm@5125
  1541
wenzelm@5217
  1542
* HOL/Fun INCOMPATIBILITY: `inj_onto' is now called `inj_on' (which
wenzelm@5217
  1543
makes more sense);
berghofe@5109
  1544
paulson@5475
  1545
* HOL/Set INCOMPATIBILITY: rule `equals0D' is now a well-formed destruct rule;
paulson@5475
  1546
  It and 'sym RS equals0D' are now in the default  claset, giving automatic
paulson@5475
  1547
  disjointness reasoning but breaking a few old proofs.
paulson@5267
  1548
wenzelm@5217
  1549
* HOL/Relation INCOMPATIBILITY: renamed the relational operator r^-1
wenzelm@5217
  1550
to 'converse' from 'inverse' (for compatibility with ZF and some
wenzelm@5217
  1551
literature);
wenzelm@5085
  1552
wenzelm@5127
  1553
* HOL/recdef can now declare non-recursive functions, with {} supplied as
wenzelm@5127
  1554
the well-founded relation;
oheimb@4838
  1555
paulson@5490
  1556
* HOL/Set INCOMPATIBILITY: the complement of set A is now written -A instead of
paulson@5490
  1557
    Compl A.  The "Compl" syntax remains available as input syntax for this
paulson@5490
  1558
    release ONLY.
paulson@5490
  1559
wenzelm@5127
  1560
* HOL/Update: new theory of function updates:
wenzelm@5127
  1561
    f(a:=b) == %x. if x=a then b else f x
wenzelm@5127
  1562
may also be iterated as in f(a:=b,c:=d,...);
nipkow@5077
  1563
wenzelm@5127
  1564
* HOL/Vimage: new theory for inverse image of a function, syntax f-``B;
paulson@4899
  1565
nipkow@5282
  1566
* HOL/List:
nipkow@5282
  1567
  - new function list_update written xs[i:=v] that updates the i-th
nipkow@5282
  1568
    list position. May also be iterated as in xs[i:=a,j:=b,...].
nipkow@5428
  1569
  - new function `upt' written [i..j(] which generates the list
nipkow@5428
  1570
    [i,i+1,...,j-1], i.e. the upper bound is excluded. To include the upper
nipkow@5428
  1571
    bound write [i..j], which is a shorthand for [i..j+1(].
nipkow@5282
  1572
  - new lexicographic orderings and corresponding wellfoundedness theorems.
paulson@4779
  1573
wenzelm@5127
  1574
* HOL/Arith:
wenzelm@5127
  1575
  - removed 'pred' (predecessor) function;
wenzelm@5127
  1576
  - generalized some theorems about n-1;
wenzelm@5127
  1577
  - many new laws about "div" and "mod";
wenzelm@5127
  1578
  - new laws about greatest common divisors (see theory ex/Primes);
oheimb@4766
  1579
wenzelm@5127
  1580
* HOL/Relation: renamed the relational operator r^-1 "converse"
wenzelm@4842
  1581
instead of "inverse";
wenzelm@4711
  1582
nipkow@5651
  1583
* HOL/Induct/Multiset: a theory of multisets, including the wellfoundedness
nipkow@5651
  1584
  of the multiset ordering;
nipkow@5651
  1585
wenzelm@5127
  1586
* directory HOL/Real: a construction of the reals using Dedekind cuts
nipkow@5651
  1587
  (not included by default);
nipkow@4835
  1588
wenzelm@5127
  1589
* directory HOL/UNITY: Chandy and Misra's UNITY formalism;
wenzelm@4711
  1590
nipkow@5651
  1591
* directory HOL/Hoare: a new version of Hoare logic which permits many-sorted
nipkow@5651
  1592
  programs, i.e. different program variables may have different types.
nipkow@5651
  1593
paulson@5142
  1594
* calling (stac rew i) now fails if "rew" has no effect on the goal
paulson@5142
  1595
  [previously, this check worked only if the rewrite rule was unconditional]
paulson@5308
  1596
  Now rew can involve either definitions or equalities (either == or =).

*** ZF ***
paulson@4879
  1600
paulson@5332
  1601
* theory Main includes everything; INCOMPATIBILITY: theory ZF.thy contains
paulson@5332
  1602
  only the theorems proved on ZF.ML;
paulson@5160
  1603
paulson@5475
  1604
* ZF INCOMPATIBILITY: rule `equals0D' is now a well-formed destruct rule;
paulson@5475
  1605
  It and 'sym RS equals0D' are now in the default  claset, giving automatic
paulson@5475
  1606
  disjointness reasoning but breaking a few old proofs.
paulson@5267
  1607
paulson@5160
  1608

  1616
  Now rew can involve either definitions or equalities (either == or =).
paulson@5142

  1625
also src/Pure/README;
wenzelm@5207
  1626
wenzelm@5008
  1627
* improved the theory data mechanism to support encapsulation (data
wenzelm@5008
  1628
kind name replaced by private Object.kind, acting as authorization
wenzelm@5373
  1629
key); new type-safe user interface via functor TheoryDataFun; generic
wenzelm@5373
  1630
print_data function becomes basically useless;
wenzelm@5002
  1631
wenzelm@5251
  1632
* removed global_names compatibility flag -- all theory declarations

wenzelm@5251
  1634
wenzelm@5085
  1635

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES (see below for more details) ***
wenzelm@4410
  1659
wenzelm@4410
  1660
* changed lexical syntax of terms / types: dots made part of long
wenzelm@4410
  1661
identifiers, e.g. "%x.x" no longer possible, should be "%x. x";
wenzelm@4410
  1662
wenzelm@4410
  1663
* simpset (and claset) reference variable replaced by functions
wenzelm@4410
  1664
simpset / simpset_ref;
wenzelm@4410
  1665
wenzelm@4410
  1666
* no longer supports theory aliases (via merge) and non-trivial

  1667
implicit merge of thms' signatures;
wenzelm@4410
  1668
wenzelm@4410
  1669
* most internal names of constants changed due to qualified names;
wenzelm@4410
  1670
wenzelm@4410

*** General Changes ***
paulson@3715
  1675
wenzelm@4174
  1676
* hierachically structured name spaces (for consts, types, axms, thms
wenzelm@3943
  1677
etc.); new lexical class 'longid' (e.g. Foo.bar.x) may render much of
wenzelm@4108
  1678
old input syntactically incorrect (e.g. "%x.x"); COMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@4108
  1679
isatool fixdots ensures space after dots (e.g. "%x. x"); set
wenzelm@4174
  1680
long_names for fully qualified output names; NOTE: ML programs
wenzelm@4174
  1681
(special tactics, packages etc.) referring to internal names may have
wenzelm@4174
  1682
to be adapted to cope with fully qualified names; in case of severe
wenzelm@4174
  1683
backward campatibility problems try setting 'global_names' at compile
wenzelm@4174
  1684
time to have enrything declared within a flat name space; one may also
wenzelm@4174
  1685
fine tune name declarations in theories via the 'global' and 'local'
wenzelm@4174
  1686
section;
wenzelm@4108
  1687
wenzelm@4108
  1688
* reimplemented the implicit simpset and claset using the new anytype
wenzelm@4108
  1689
data filed in signatures; references simpset:simpset ref etc. are
wenzelm@4108
  1690
replaced by functions simpset:unit->simpset and
wenzelm@4108
  1691
simpset_ref:unit->simpset ref; COMPATIBILITY: use isatool fixclasimp
wenzelm@4108
  1692
to patch your ML files accordingly;
paulson@3856
  1693
wenzelm@3857
  1694
* HTML output now includes theory graph data for display with Java
wenzelm@3857
  1695
applet or isatool browser; data generated automatically via isatool
wenzelm@3901
  1696
usedir (see -i option, ISABELLE_USEDIR_OPTIONS);
wenzelm@3857
  1697
paulson@3856
  1698
* defs may now be conditional; improved rewrite_goals_tac to handle
paulson@3856
  1699
conditional equations;
paulson@3856
  1700
wenzelm@4174
  1701
* defs now admits additional type arguments, using TYPE('a) syntax;
wenzelm@4174
  1702
wenzelm@3901
  1703
* theory aliases via merge (e.g. M=A+B+C) no longer supported, always
wenzelm@3901
  1704
creates a new theory node; implicit merge of thms' signatures is
wenzelm@4112
  1705
restricted to 'trivial' ones; COMPATIBILITY: one may have to use
wenzelm@3901
  1706
transfer:theory->thm->thm in (rare) cases;
wenzelm@3901
  1707
wenzelm@3968
  1708
* improved handling of draft signatures / theories; draft thms (and
wenzelm@3968
  1709
ctyps, cterms) are automatically promoted to real ones;
wenzelm@3968
  1710
wenzelm@3901
  1711
* slightly changed interfaces for oracles: admit many per theory, named
wenzelm@3901
  1712
(e.g. oracle foo = mlfun), additional name argument for invoke_oracle;
wenzelm@3901
  1713
wenzelm@3901
  1714
* print_goals: optional output of const types (set show_consts and
wenzelm@3901
  1715
show_types);
wenzelm@3851
  1716
wenzelm@4388
  1717
* improved output of warnings (###) and errors (***);
wenzelm@3697
  1718
paulson@4178
  1719
* subgoal_tac displays a warning if the new subgoal has type variables;
paulson@4178
  1720
paulson@3715
  1721
* removed old README and Makefiles;
wenzelm@3697
  1722
paulson@3856
  1723
* replaced print_goals_ref hook by print_current_goals_fn and result_error_fn;
wenzelm@3670
  1724
paulson@3715
  1725
* removed obsolete init_pps and init_database;
paulson@3715
  1726
paulson@3715
  1727
* deleted the obsolete tactical STATE, which was declared by
paulson@3715
  1728
    fun STATE tacfun st = tacfun st st;
paulson@3715
  1729
wenzelm@4388
  1730
* cd and use now support path variables, e.g. $ISABELLE_HOME, or ~
wenzelm@4388
  1731
(which abbreviates $HOME);
wenzelm@4269
  1732
wenzelm@4269
  1733
* changed Pure/Sequence interface (see Pure/seq.ML); COMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@4269
  1734
use isatool fixseq to adapt your ML programs (this works for fully
wenzelm@4269
  1735
qualified references to the Sequence structure only!);
wenzelm@4269
  1736
wenzelm@4381
  1737
* use_thy no longer requires writable current directory; it always
wenzelm@4381
  1738
reloads .ML *and* .thy file, if either one is out of date;
wenzelm@4269
  1739
paulson@3715
  1740
paulson@3715
  1741
*** Classical Reasoner ***
paulson@3715
  1742
wenzelm@3744
  1743
* Clarify_tac, clarify_tac, clarify_step_tac, Clarify_step_tac: new
wenzelm@3744
  1744
tactics that use classical reasoning to simplify a subgoal without
wenzelm@3744
  1745
splitting it into several subgoals;
paulson@3715
  1746
paulson@3719
  1747
* Safe_tac: like safe_tac but uses the default claset;
paulson@3719
  1748
paulson@3715
  1749
paulson@3715
  1750
*** Simplifier ***
paulson@3715
  1751
paulson@3715
  1752
* added simplification meta rules:
paulson@3715
  1753
    (asm_)(full_)simplify: simpset -> thm -> thm;
paulson@3715
  1754
paulson@3715
  1755
* simplifier.ML no longer part of Pure -- has to be loaded by object
paulson@3715
  1756
logics (again);
paulson@3715
  1757
paulson@3715
  1758
* added prems argument to simplification procedures;
paulson@3715
  1759
paulson@4325
  1760
* HOL, FOL, ZF: added infix function `addsplits':
paulson@4325
  1761
  instead of `<simpset> setloop (split_tac <thms>)'
paulson@4325
  1762
  you can simply write `<simpset> addsplits <thms>'
paulson@4325
  1763
paulson@3715
  1764
paulson@3715
  1765
*** Syntax ***
paulson@3715
  1766
wenzelm@4174
  1767
* TYPE('a) syntax for type reflection terms;
wenzelm@4174
  1768
wenzelm@3985
  1769
* no longer handles consts with name "" -- declare as 'syntax' instead;
paulson@3856
  1770
paulson@3856
  1771
* pretty printer: changed order of mixfix annotation preference (again!);
wenzelm@3846
  1772
paulson@3715
  1773
* Pure: fixed idt/idts vs. pttrn/pttrns syntactic categories;
paulson@3715
  1774
paulson@3715
  1775
paulson@3715
  1776
*** HOL ***
paulson@3715
  1777
wenzelm@5726
  1778
* HOL: there is a new splitter `split_asm_tac' that can be used e.g.
oheimb@4189
  1779
  with `addloop' of the simplifier to faciliate case splitting in premises.
oheimb@4189
  1780
nipkow@4035
  1781
* HOL/TLA: Stephan Merz's formalization of Lamport's Temporal Logic of Actions;
wenzelm@3985
  1782
wenzelm@3985
  1783
* HOL/Auth: new protocol proofs including some for the Internet
nipkow@4035
  1784
  protocol TLS;
wenzelm@3985
  1785
wenzelm@4125
  1786
* HOL/Map: new theory of `maps' a la VDM;
nipkow@3982
  1787
wenzelm@4335
  1788
* HOL/simplifier: simplification procedures nat_cancel_sums for
wenzelm@4335
  1789
cancelling out common nat summands from =, <, <= (in)equalities, or
wenzelm@4335
  1790
differences; simplification procedures nat_cancel_factor for
wenzelm@4335
  1791
cancelling common factor from =, <, <= (in)equalities over natural
wenzelm@4373
  1792
sums; nat_cancel contains both kinds of procedures, it is installed by
wenzelm@4373
  1793
default in Arith.thy -- this COULD MAKE EXISTING PROOFS FAIL;
wenzelm@4335
  1794
nipkow@3580
  1795
* HOL/simplifier: terms of the form
paulson@4325
  1796
  `? x. P1(x) & ... & Pn(x) & x=t & Q1(x) & ... Qn(x)'  (or t=x)
nipkow@3580
  1797
  are rewritten to
nipkow@4035
  1798
  `P1(t) & ... & Pn(t) & Q1(t) & ... Qn(t)',
nipkow@4035
  1799
  and those of the form
paulson@4325
  1800
  `! x. P1(x) & ... & Pn(x) & x=t & Q1(x) & ... Qn(x) --> R(x)'  (or t=x)
nipkow@4035
  1801
  are rewritten to
nipkow@4035
  1802
  `P1(t) & ... & Pn(t) & Q1(t) & ... Qn(t) --> R(t)',
nipkow@4035
  1803
nipkow@4035
  1804
* HOL/datatype
nipkow@4035
  1805
  Each datatype `t' now comes with a theorem `split_t_case' of the form
nipkow@3580
  1806
nipkow@4035
  1807
  P(t_case f1 ... fn x) =
nipkow@4035
  1808
     ( (!y1 ... ym1. x = C1 y1 ... ym1 --> P(f1 y1 ... ym1)) &
nipkow@4035
  1809
        ...
oheimb@4189
  1810
       (!y1 ... ymn. x = Cn y1 ... ymn --> P(f1 y1 ... ymn))
nipkow@4035
  1811
     )
nipkow@4035
  1812
oheimb@4930
  1813
  and a theorem `split_t_case_asm' of the form
oheimb@4189
  1814
oheimb@4189
  1815
  P(t_case f1 ... fn x) =
oheimb@4189
  1816
    ~( (? y1 ... ym1. x = C1 y1 ... ym1 & ~P(f1 y1 ... ym1)) |
oheimb@4189
  1817
        ...
oheimb@4189
  1818
       (? y1 ... ymn. x = Cn y1 ... ymn & ~P(f1 y1 ... ymn))
oheimb@4189
  1819
     )
oheimb@4930
  1820
  which can be added to a simpset via `addsplits'. The existing theorems
oheimb@4930
  1821
  expand_list_case and expand_option_case have been renamed to
oheimb@4930
  1822
  split_list_case and split_option_case.
oheimb@4189
  1823
nipkow@4361
  1824
* HOL/Arithmetic:
nipkow@4361
  1825
  - `pred n' is automatically converted to `n-1'.
nipkow@4361
  1826
    Users are strongly encouraged not to use `pred' any longer,
nipkow@4361
  1827
    because it will disappear altogether at some point.
nipkow@4361
  1828
  - Users are strongly encouraged to write "0 < n" rather than
nipkow@4361
  1829
    "n ~= 0". Theorems and proof tools have been modified towards this
nipkow@4361
  1830
    `standard'.
nipkow@4357
  1831
nipkow@4502
  1832
* HOL/Lists:
nipkow@4502
  1833
  the function "set_of_list" has been renamed "set" (and its theorems too);
nipkow@4502
  1834
  the function "nth" now takes its arguments in the reverse order and
nipkow@4502
  1835
  has acquired the infix notation "!" as in "xs!n".
paulson@3570
  1836
paulson@4154
  1837
* HOL/Set: UNIV is now a constant and is no longer translated to Compl{};
paulson@4154
  1838
paulson@4154
  1839
* HOL/Set: The operator (UN x.B x) now abbreviates (UN x:UNIV. B x) and its
paulson@4154
  1840
  specialist theorems (like UN1_I) are gone.  Similarly for (INT x.B x);
paulson@4154
  1841
wenzelm@4575
  1842
* HOL/record: extensible records with schematic structural subtyping
wenzelm@4575
  1843
(single inheritance); EXPERIMENTAL version demonstrating the encoding,
wenzelm@4575
  1844
still lacks various theorems and concrete record syntax;
wenzelm@4575
  1845
wenzelm@4125
  1846
paulson@3715
  1847
*** HOLCF ***
wenzelm@3535
  1848
wenzelm@4125
  1849
* removed "axioms" and "generated by" sections;
wenzelm@4125
  1850
oheimb@4123
  1851
* replaced "ops" section by extended "consts" section, which is capable of
wenzelm@4125
  1852
  handling the continuous function space "->" directly;
wenzelm@4125
  1853
wenzelm@4125
  1854
* domain package:
wenzelm@4125
  1855
  . proves theorems immediately and stores them in the theory,
wenzelm@4125
  1856
  . creates hierachical name space,
wenzelm@4125
  1857
  . now uses normal mixfix annotations (instead of cinfix...),
wenzelm@4125
  1858
  . minor changes to some names and values (for consistency),
wenzelm@4125
  1859
  . e.g. cases -> casedist, dists_eq -> dist_eqs, [take_lemma] -> take_lemmas,
wenzelm@4125
  1860
  . separator between mutual domain defs: changed "," to "and",
wenzelm@4125
  1861
  . improved handling of sort constraints;  now they have to
wenzelm@4125
  1862
    appear on the left-hand side of the equations only;
oheimb@4123
  1863
oheimb@4123
  1864
* fixed LAM <x,y,zs>.b syntax;
wenzelm@3567
  1865
wenzelm@3744
  1866
* added extended adm_tac to simplifier in HOLCF -- can now discharge
wenzelm@3744
  1867
adm (%x. P (t x)), where P is chainfinite and t continuous;
wenzelm@3579
  1868
wenzelm@3579
  1869
paulson@3719
  1870
*** FOL and ZF ***
paulson@3719
  1871
wenzelm@5726
  1872
* FOL: there is a new splitter `split_asm_tac' that can be used e.g.
oheimb@4189
  1873
  with `addloop' of the simplifier to faciliate case splitting in premises.
oheimb@4189
  1874
wenzelm@3744
  1875
* qed_spec_mp, qed_goal_spec_mp, qed_goalw_spec_mp are available, as
wenzelm@3744
  1876
in HOL, they strip ALL and --> from proved theorems;

paulson@3002
  1883
*** General Changes ***
paulson@3002
  1884
paulson@3002
  1885
* new utilities to build / run / maintain Isabelle etc. (in parts
paulson@3002
  1886
still somewhat experimental); old Makefiles etc. still functional;
wenzelm@2971
  1887
wenzelm@3205
  1888
* new 'Isabelle System Manual';
wenzelm@3205
  1889
wenzelm@2825
  1890
* INSTALL text, together with ./configure and ./build scripts;
wenzelm@2773
  1891
wenzelm@3006
  1892
* reimplemented type inference for greater efficiency, better error
wenzelm@3006
  1893
messages and clean internal interface;
paulson@3002
  1894
paulson@3002
  1895
* prlim command for dealing with lots of subgoals (an easier way of
paulson@3002
  1896
setting goals_limit);
paulson@3002
  1897
wenzelm@3006
  1898
wenzelm@3006
  1899
*** Syntax ***
paulson@3002
  1900
wenzelm@3116
  1901
* supports alternative (named) syntax tables (parser and pretty
wenzelm@3116
  1902
printer); internal interface is provided by add_modesyntax(_i);
wenzelm@3116
  1903
paulson@3002
  1904
* Pure, FOL, ZF, HOL, HOLCF now support symbolic input and output; to
paulson@3002
  1905
be used in conjunction with the Isabelle symbol font; uses the
paulson@3002
  1906
"symbols" syntax table;
paulson@3002
  1907
wenzelm@2705
  1908
* added token_translation interface (may translate name tokens in
wenzelm@2756
  1909
arbitrary ways, dependent on their type (free, bound, tfree, ...) and
wenzelm@3116
  1910
the current print_mode); IMPORTANT: user print translation functions
wenzelm@3116
  1911
are responsible for marking newly introduced bounds
wenzelm@3116
  1912
(Syntax.mark_boundT);
wenzelm@2705
  1913
wenzelm@2730
  1914
* token translations for modes "xterm" and "xterm_color" that display
wenzelm@3006
  1915
names in bold, underline etc. or colors (which requires a color
wenzelm@3006
  1916
version of xterm);
wenzelm@2730
  1917
paulson@3002
  1918
* infixes may now be declared with names independent of their syntax;
paulson@3002
  1919
paulson@3002
  1920
* added typed_print_translation (like print_translation, but may
paulson@3002
  1921
access type of constant);

*** Classical Reasoner ***
paulson@3002
  1925
paulson@3002
  1926
Blast_tac: a new tactic!  It is often more powerful than fast_tac, but has
paulson@3002
  1927
some limitations.  Blast_tac...
paulson@3002
  1928
  + ignores addss, addbefore, addafter; this restriction is intrinsic
paulson@3002
  1929
  + ignores elimination rules that don't have the correct format
wenzelm@5726
  1930
        (the conclusion MUST be a formula variable)
paulson@3002
  1931
  + ignores types, which can make HOL proofs fail
paulson@3002
  1932
  + rules must not require higher-order unification, e.g. apply_type in ZF
paulson@3002
  1933
    [message "Function Var's argument not a bound variable" relates to this]
paulson@3002
  1934
  + its proof strategy is more general but can actually be slower
paulson@3002
  1935
wenzelm@3107
  1936
* substitution with equality assumptions no longer permutes other
wenzelm@3107
  1937
assumptions;
paulson@3002
  1938
paulson@3002
  1939
* minor changes in semantics of addafter (now called addaltern); renamed
paulson@3002
  1940
setwrapper to setWrapper and compwrapper to compWrapper; added safe wrapper
wenzelm@3107
  1941
(and access functions for it);
paulson@3002
  1942
wenzelm@5726
  1943
* improved combination of classical reasoner and simplifier:
oheimb@3317
  1944
  + functions for handling clasimpsets
oheimb@3317
  1945
  + improvement of addss: now the simplifier is called _after_ the
oheimb@3317
  1946
    safe steps.
oheimb@3317
  1947
  + safe variant of addss called addSss: uses safe simplifications
wenzelm@5726
  1948
    _during_ the safe steps. It is more complete as it allows multiple
oheimb@3317
  1949
    instantiations of unknowns (e.g. with slow_tac).

paulson@3002
  1951
*** Simplifier ***
paulson@3002
  1952
wenzelm@3006
  1953
* added interface for simplification procedures (functions that
wenzelm@3006

produce *proven* rewrite rules on the fly, depending on current
wenzelm@3006
  1955
redex);
wenzelm@3006
  1956
wenzelm@3006
  1957
* ordering on terms as parameter (used for ordered rewriting);
wenzelm@3006
  1958
wenzelm@3107
  1959
* new functions delcongs, deleqcongs, and Delcongs. richer rep_ss;

paulson@2557
  2146
* Simple database queries: return a named theorem (get_thm) or all theorems of
paulson@2557
  2147
a given theory (thms_of), or find out what theory a theorem was proved in
paulson@2557
  2148
(theory_of_thm);
paulson@2557
  2149
paulson@2557
  2150
* Bugs fixed in the inductive definition and datatype packages;
paulson@2557
  2151
paulson@2557
  2152
* The classical reasoner provides deepen_tac and depth_tac, making FOL_dup_cs
paulson@2557
  2153
and HOL_dup_cs obsolete;
paulson@2557
  2154
paulson@2557
  2155
