This release provides major improvements.  The Isar language has
wenzelm@12995
     8
reached a mature state; the core engine is able to record full proof

     9
terms; many aspects of the library have been reworked; several
wenzelm@12995
    10
substantial case studies have been added.  Some changes may cause
wenzelm@12995
    11
incompatibility with earlier versions, but improve accessibility of

    12
Isabelle for new users.
