*** 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@12690
    30
X-Symbol; added \<euro> symbol;
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

    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@11995
    63
  - added 'print_induct_rules' (covered by help item in Proof General > 3.3);
wenzelm@11995
    64
  - moved induct/cases attributes to Pure, methods to Provers;
wenzelm@11995
    65
  - generic method setup instantiated for FOL and HOL;
wenzelm@11986
    66
wenzelm@12163
    67
* Pure: support multiple simultaneous goal statements, for example
wenzelm@12163
    68
"have a: A and b: B" (same for 'theorem' etc.); being a pure
wenzelm@12163
    69
meta-level mechanism, this acts as if several individual goals had
wenzelm@12163
    70
been stated separately; in particular common proof methods need to be
wenzelm@12163
    71
repeated in order to cover all claims; note that a single elimination
wenzelm@12163
    72
step is *not* sufficient to establish the two conjunctions, so this
wenzelm@12163
    73
fails:
wenzelm@12163
    74
wenzelm@12163
    75
  assume "A & B" then have A and B ..   (*".." fails*)
wenzelm@12163
    76
wenzelm@12163
    77
better use "obtain" in situations as above; alternative refer to
wenzelm@12163
    78
multi-step methods like 'auto', 'simp_all', 'blast+' etc.;
wenzelm@12163
    79
wenzelm@12078
    80
* Pure: proper integration with ``locales''; unlike the original
wenzelm@12210
    81
version by Florian Kammüller, Isar locales package high-level proof
wenzelm@12078
    82
contexts rather than raw logical ones (e.g. we admit to include
wenzelm@12280
    83
attributes everywhere); operations on locales include merge and
wenzelm@12280
    84
rename; e.g. see HOL/ex/Locales.thy;
wenzelm@12078
    85
wenzelm@12707
    86
* Pure: the following commands have been ``localized'', supporting a
wenzelm@12707
    87
target locale specification "(in name)": 'lemma', 'theorem',
wenzelm@12707
    88
'corollary', 'lemmas', 'theorems', 'declare'; the results will be
wenzelm@12707
    89
stored both within the locale and at the theory level (exported and
wenzelm@12707
    90
qualified by the locale name);
wenzelm@12707
    91
wenzelm@12078
    92
* Pure: theory goals now support ad-hoc contexts, which are discharged
wenzelm@12078
    93
in the result, as in ``lemma (assumes A and B) K: A .''; syntax
wenzelm@12078
    94
coincides with that of a locale body;
wenzelm@12078
    95
wenzelm@11722
    96
* Pure: renamed "antecedent" case to "rule_context";
wenzelm@11722
    97
wenzelm@11738
    98
* Pure: added 'corollary' command;
wenzelm@11738
    99
wenzelm@11722
   100
* Pure: fixed 'token_translation' command;
wenzelm@11722
   101
wenzelm@11899
   102
* Pure: removed obsolete 'exported' attribute;
wenzelm@11899
   103
wenzelm@11933
   104
* Pure: dummy pattern "_" in is/let is now automatically lifted over
wenzelm@11933
   105
bound variables: "ALL x. P x --> Q x" (is "ALL x. _ --> ?C x")
wenzelm@11899
   106
supersedes more cumbersome ... (is "ALL x. _ x --> ?C x");
wenzelm@11899
   107
wenzelm@11952
   108
* Pure: method 'atomize' presents local goal premises as object-level
wenzelm@11952
   109
statements (atomic meta-level propositions); setup controlled via
wenzelm@11952
   110
rewrite rules declarations of 'atomize' attribute; example
wenzelm@11952
   111
application: 'induct' method with proper rule statements in improper
wenzelm@11952
   112
proof *scripts*;
wenzelm@11952
   113
wenzelm@12106
   114
* Pure: emulation of instantiation tactics (rule_tac, cut_tac, etc.)
wenzelm@12106
   115
now consider the syntactic context of assumptions, giving a better
wenzelm@12106
   116
chance to get type-inference of the arguments right (this is
wenzelm@12106
   117
especially important for locales);
wenzelm@12106
   118
wenzelm@12312
   119
* Pure: "sorry" no longer requires quick_and_dirty in interactive
wenzelm@12312
   120
mode;
wenzelm@12312
   121
wenzelm@12405
   122
* Pure/obtain: the formal conclusion "thesis", being marked as
wenzelm@12405
   123
``internal'', may no longer be reference directly in the text;
wenzelm@12405
   124
potential INCOMPATIBILITY, may need to use "?thesis" in rare
wenzelm@12405
   125
situations;
wenzelm@12405
   126
wenzelm@12405
   127
* Pure: generic 'sym' attribute which declares a rule both as pure
wenzelm@12405
   128
'elim?' and for the 'symmetric' operation;
wenzelm@12405
   129
wenzelm@12364
   130
* Pure/Provers/classical: simplified integration with pure rule
wenzelm@12364
   131
attributes and methods; the classical "intro?/elim?/dest?"
wenzelm@12364
   132
declarations coincide with the pure ones; the "rule" method no longer
wenzelm@12364
   133
includes classically swapped intros; "intro" and "elim" methods no
wenzelm@12364
   134
longer pick rules from the context; also got rid of ML declarations
wenzelm@12364
   135
AddXIs/AddXEs/AddXDs; all of this has some potential for
wenzelm@12364
   136
INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12364
   137
wenzelm@12405
   138
* Provers/classical: attribute 'swapped' produces classical inversions
wenzelm@12405
   139
of introduction rules;
wenzelm@12405
   140
wenzelm@12364
   141
* Provers/simplifier: 'simplified' attribute may refer to explicit
wenzelm@12364
   142
rules instead of full simplifier context; 'iff' attribute handles
wenzelm@12364
   143
conditional rules;
wenzelm@11936
   144
wenzelm@11745
   145
* HOL: 'typedef' now allows alternative names for Rep/Abs morphisms;
wenzelm@11745
   146
wenzelm@11690
   147
* HOL: 'recdef' now fails on unfinished automated proofs, use
wenzelm@11633
   148
"(permissive)" option to recover old behavior;
wenzelm@11633
   149
wenzelm@11933
   150
* HOL: 'inductive' no longer features separate (collective) attributes
wenzelm@11933
   151
for 'intros' (was found too confusing);
wenzelm@11933
   152
wenzelm@12405
   153
* HOL: properly declared induction rules less_induct and
wenzelm@12405
   154
wf_induct_rule;
wenzelm@12405
   155
kleing@11788
   156
wenzelm@11474
   157
*** HOL ***
wenzelm@11474
   158
wenzelm@11702
   159
* HOL: moved over to sane numeral syntax; the new policy is as
wenzelm@11702
   160
follows:
wenzelm@11702
   161
wenzelm@11702
   162
  - 0 and 1 are polymorphic constants, which are defined on any
wenzelm@11702
   163
  numeric type (nat, int, real etc.);
wenzelm@11702
   164
wenzelm@11702
   165
  - 2, 3, 4, ... and -1, -2, -3, ... are polymorphic numerals, based
wenzelm@11702
   166
  binary representation internally;
wenzelm@11702
   167
wenzelm@11702
   168
  - type nat has special constructor Suc, and generally prefers Suc 0
wenzelm@11702
   169
  over 1::nat and Suc (Suc 0) over 2::nat;
wenzelm@11702
   170
wenzelm@12364
   171
This change may cause significant problems of INCOMPATIBILITY; here
wenzelm@12364
   172
are some hints on converting existing sources:
wenzelm@11702
   173
wenzelm@11702
   174
  - due to the new "num" token, "-0" and "-1" etc. are now atomic
wenzelm@11702
   175
  entities, so expressions involving "-" (unary or binary minus) need
wenzelm@11702
   176
  to be spaced properly;
wenzelm@11702
   177
wenzelm@11702
   178
  - existing occurrences of "1" may need to be constraint "1::nat" or
wenzelm@11702
   179
  even replaced by Suc 0; similar for old "2";
wenzelm@11702
   180
wenzelm@11702
   181
  - replace "#nnn" by "nnn", and "#-nnn" by "-nnn";
wenzelm@11702
   182
wenzelm@11702
   183
  - remove all special provisions on numerals in proofs;
wenzelm@11702
   184
wenzelm@12335
   185
* HOL: the class of all HOL types is now called "type" rather than
wenzelm@12335
   186
"term"; INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt references to this type class
wenzelm@12335
   187
in axclass/classes, instance/arities, and (usually rare) occurrences
wenzelm@12335
   188
in typings (of consts etc.); internally the class is called
wenzelm@12335
   189
"HOL.type", ML programs should refer to HOLogic.typeS;
wenzelm@12335
   190
wenzelm@12280
   191
* HOL/record package improvements:
wenzelm@12280
   192
  - new derived operations "fields" to build a partial record section,
wenzelm@12280
   193
    "extend" to promote a fixed record to a record scheme, and
wenzelm@12280
   194
    "truncate" for the reverse; cf. theorems "xxx.defs", which are *not*
wenzelm@12280
   195
    declared as simp by default;
wenzelm@12587
   196
  - shared operations ("more", "fields", etc.) now need to be always
wenzelm@12587
   197
    qualified) --- potential INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12280
   198
  - removed "make_scheme" operations (use "make" with "extend") --
wenzelm@12280
   199
    INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@11937
   200
  - removed "more" class (simply use "term") -- INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12253
   201
  - provides cases/induct rules for use with corresponding Isar
wenzelm@12253
   202
    methods (for concrete records, record schemes, concrete more
wenzelm@12280
   203
    parts, and schematic more parts -- in that order);
wenzelm@11930
   204
  - internal definitions directly based on a light-weight abstract
wenzelm@11930
   205
    theory of product types over typedef rather than datatype;
wenzelm@11930
   206
wenzelm@11933
   207
* HOL: canonical cases/induct rules for n-tuples (n = 3..7);
wenzelm@11933
   208
wenzelm@11802
   209
* HOL: concrete setsum syntax "\<Sum>i:A. b" == "setsum (%i. b) A"
wenzelm@11802
   210
(beware of argument permutation!);
wenzelm@11802
   211
wenzelm@11657
   212
* HOL: linorder_less_split superseded by linorder_cases;
wenzelm@11657
   213
wenzelm@11633
   214
* HOL: added "The" definite description operator; move Hilbert's "Eps"
wenzelm@11633
   215
to peripheral theory "Hilbert_Choice";
wenzelm@11437
   216
wenzelm@11572
   217
* HOL: made split_all_tac safe; EXISTING PROOFS MAY FAIL OR LOOP, so
wenzelm@11572
   218
in this (rare) case use:
wenzelm@11572
   219
wenzelm@11572
   220
  delSWrapper "split_all_tac"
wenzelm@11572
   221
  addSbefore ("unsafe_split_all_tac", unsafe_split_all_tac)
wenzelm@11572
   222
wenzelm@11572
   223
* HOL: added safe wrapper "split_conv_tac" to claset; EXISTING PROOFS
wenzelm@11474
   224
MAY FAIL;
nipkow@11361
   225
wenzelm@11572
   226
* HOL: introduced f^n = f o ... o f; warning: due to the limits of
wenzelm@11572
   227
Isabelle's type classes, ^ on functions and relations has too general
wenzelm@11572
   228
a domain, namely ('a * 'b) set and 'a => 'b; this means that it may be
wenzelm@11572
   229
necessary to attach explicit type constraints;
nipkow@11307
   230
nipkow@12489
   231
* HOL/Relation: the prefix name of the infix "O" has been changed from "comp"
nipkow@12489
   232
to "rel_comp"; INCOMPATIBILITY: a few theorems have been renamed accordingly
nipkow@12489
   233
(eg "compI" -> "rel_compI").
nipkow@12489
   234
wenzelm@11487
   235
* HOL: syntax translations now work properly with numerals and records
wenzelm@11487
   236
expressions;
wenzelm@11474
   237
wenzelm@12457
   238
* HOL: bounded abstraction now uses syntax "%" / "\<lambda>" instead
wenzelm@12457
   239
of "lam" -- INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@11474
   240
wenzelm@11933
   241
* HOL: got rid of some global declarations (potential INCOMPATIBILITY
wenzelm@11933
   242
for ML tools): const "()" renamed "Product_Type.Unity", type "unit"
wenzelm@11933
   243
renamed "Product_Type.unit";
wenzelm@11611
   244
nipkow@12564
   245
* HOL: renamed rtrancl_into_rtrancl2 to converse_rtrancl_into_rtrancl
nipkow@12564
   246
wenzelm@12597
   247
* HOL/GroupTheory: group theory examples including Sylow's theorem (by
wenzelm@12597
   248
Florian Kammüller);
wenzelm@12597
   249
wenzelm@12608
   250
* HOL/IMP: updated and converted to new-style theory format; several
wenzelm@12608
   251
parts turned into readable document, with proper Isar proof texts and
wenzelm@12608
   252
some explanations (by Gerwin Klein);
wenzelm@12597
   253
wenzelm@12690
   254
* HOL-Hyperreal is now a logic image;
wenzelm@12690
   255
wenzelm@11611
   256
wenzelm@12022
   257
*** HOLCF ***
wenzelm@12022
   258
wenzelm@12622
   259
* Isar: consts/constdefs supports mixfix syntax for continuous
wenzelm@12622
   260
operations;
wenzelm@12622
   261
wenzelm@12622
   262
* Isar: domain package adapted to new-style theory format, e.g. see
wenzelm@12622
   263
HOLCF/ex/Dnat.thy;
wenzelm@12622
   264
wenzelm@12622
   265
* theory Lift: proper use of rep_datatype lift instead of ML hacks --
wenzelm@12280
   266
potential INCOMPATIBILITY; now use plain induct_tac instead of former
wenzelm@12280
   267
lift.induct_tac, always use UU instead of Undef;
wenzelm@12022

   273
wenzelm@12622
   274
* Isar: proper integration of logic-specific tools and packages,
wenzelm@12622
   275
including theory commands '(co)inductive', '(co)datatype',
wenzelm@12622
   276
'rep_datatype', 'inductive_cases', as well as methods 'ind_cases',
wenzelm@12622
   277
'induct_tac', 'case_tac', and 'typecheck' (with attribute 'TC');
wenzelm@12622
   278
wenzelm@12622
   279
* theory Main no longer includes AC; for the Axiom of Choice, base
wenzelm@12622
   280
your theory on Main_ZFC;
wenzelm@12622
   281
wenzelm@12622
   282
* the integer library now covers quotients and remainders, with many
wenzelm@12622
   283
laws relating division to addition, multiplication, etc.;
paulson@12563
   284
wenzelm@12280
   285
* ZF/UNITY: Chandy and Misra's UNITY is now available in ZF, giving a
wenzelm@12280
   286
typeless version of the formalism;
wenzelm@12280
   287
wenzelm@12608
   288
* ZF/IMP: updated and converted to new-style theory format;
wenzelm@12608
   289
wenzelm@12280
   290
* ZF/Induct: new directory for examples of inductive definitions,
wenzelm@12608
   291
including theory Multiset for multiset orderings; converted to
wenzelm@12608
   292
new-style theory format;

wenzelm@12280
   297
* Pure/kernel: meta-level proof terms (by Stefan Berghofer); reference
wenzelm@12280
   298
variable proof controls level of detail: 0 = no proofs (only oracle
wenzelm@12280
   299
dependencies), 1 = lemma dependencies, 2 = compact proof terms; see
wenzelm@12280
   300
also ref manual for further ML interfaces;
wenzelm@12280
   301
wenzelm@12280
   302
* Pure/axclass: removed obsolete ML interface
wenzelm@12280
   303
goal_subclass/goal_arity;
wenzelm@12280
   304
wenzelm@12280
   305
* Pure/syntax: new token syntax "num" for plain numerals (without "#"
wenzelm@12280
   306
of "xnum"); potential INCOMPATIBILITY, since -0, -1 etc. are now
wenzelm@12280
   307
separate tokens, so expressions involving minus need to be spaced
wenzelm@12280
   308
properly;
wenzelm@12280
   309
wenzelm@12312
   310
* Pure/syntax: support non-oriented infixes, using keyword "infix"
wenzelm@12312
   311
rather than "infixl" or "infixr";
wenzelm@12312
   312
wenzelm@12312
   313
* Pure/syntax: concrete syntax for dummy type variables admits genuine
wenzelm@12312
   314
sort constraint specifications in type inference; e.g. "x::_::foo"
wenzelm@12312
   315
ensures that the type of "x" is of sort "foo" (but not necessarily a
wenzelm@12312
   316
type variable);
wenzelm@12280
   317
wenzelm@12280
   318
* Pure/syntax: print modes "type_brackets" and "no_type_brackets"
wenzelm@12280
   319
control output of nested => (types); the default behavior is
wenzelm@12280
   320
"type_brackets";
wenzelm@12280
   321
wenzelm@12280
   322
* Pure/syntax: builtin parse translation for "_constify" turns valued
wenzelm@11817
   323
tokens into AST constants;
wenzelm@11474
   324
wenzelm@12280
   325
* Pure/syntax: prefer later declarations of translations and print
wenzelm@12280
   326
translation functions; potential INCOMPATIBILITY: need to reverse
wenzelm@12280
   327
multiple declarations for same syntax element constant;
wenzelm@12280
   328
wenzelm@12280
   329
* Provers/classical: renamed addaltern to addafter, addSaltern to
wenzelm@12280
   330
addSafter;
wenzelm@12280
   331
wenzelm@12280
   332
* Provers/clasimp: ``iff'' declarations now handle conditional rules
wenzelm@12280
   333
as well;
wenzelm@12253
   334
wenzelm@12538
   335
* system: tested support for MacOS X; should be able to get Isabelle +
wenzelm@12538
   336
Proof General to work in a plain Terminal after installing Poly/ML
wenzelm@12538
   337
(e.g. from the Isabelle distribution area) and GNU bash alone
wenzelm@12538
   338
(e.g. from http://www.apple.com); full X11, XEmacs and X-Symbol
wenzelm@12538
   339
support requires further installations, e.g. from
wenzelm@12538
   340
http://fink.sourceforge.net/);
wenzelm@12538
   341
wenzelm@12280
   342
* system: support Poly/ML 4.1.1 (able to manage larger heaps);
wenzelm@11551
   343
wenzelm@11633
   344
* system: Proof General keywords specification is now part of the
wenzelm@11633
   345
Isabelle distribution (see etc/isar-keywords.el);
wenzelm@11633
   346
wenzelm@12597
   347
* system: some support for persistent Proof General sessions (refrain
wenzelm@12597
   348
from outdating all loaded theories on startup);
wenzelm@12597
   349
wenzelm@11551
   350
* system: smart selection of Isabelle process versus Isabelle
wenzelm@11572
   351
interface, accommodates case-insensitive file systems (e.g. HFS+); may
wenzelm@11572
   352
run both "isabelle" and "Isabelle" even if file names are badly
wenzelm@11572
   353
damaged (executable inspects the case of the first letter of its own
wenzelm@11572
   354
name); added separate "isabelle-process" and "isabelle-interface";
wenzelm@11551
   355
wenzelm@12472
   356
* system: refrain from any attempt at filtering input streams; no
wenzelm@12472
   357
longer support ``8bit'' encoding of old isabelle font, instead proper
wenzelm@12472
   358
iso-latin characters may now be used; the related isatools
wenzelm@12472
   359
"symbolinput" and "nonascii" have disappeared as well;
wenzelm@12472
   360
wenzelm@12472
   361
* system: removed old "xterm" interface (the print modes "xterm" and
wenzelm@12472
   362
"xterm_color" are still available for direct use in a suitable
wenzelm@12472
   363
terminal);

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES ***
nipkow@10224
   371
paulson@11241
   372
* HOL: please note that theories in the Library and elsewhere often use the
paulson@11241
   373
new-style (Isar) format; to refer to their theorems in an ML script you must
wenzelm@12622
   374
bind them to ML identifers by e.g.      val thm_name = thm "thm_name";
paulson@11241
   375
wenzelm@11043
   376
* HOL: inductive package no longer splits induction rule aggressively,
wenzelm@11043
   377
but only as far as specified by the introductions given; the old
oheimb@11130
   378
format may be recovered via ML function complete_split_rule or attribute
wenzelm@11043
   379
'split_rule (complete)';
wenzelm@11043
   380
wenzelm@10998
   381
* HOL: induct renamed to lfp_induct, lfp_Tarski to lfp_unfold,
wenzelm@10998
   382
gfp_Tarski to gfp_unfold;
nipkow@10224
   383
paulson@10288
   384
* HOL: contrapos, contrapos2 renamed to contrapos_nn, contrapos_pp;
paulson@10288
   385
wenzelm@10858
   386
* HOL: infix "dvd" now has priority 50 rather than 70 (because it is a
wenzelm@10858
   387
relation); infix "^^" has been renamed "``"; infix "``" has been
wenzelm@10858
   388
renamed "`"; "univalent" has been renamed "single_valued";
nipkow@10793
   389
wenzelm@10998
   390
* HOL/Real: "rinv" and "hrinv" replaced by overloaded "inverse"
wenzelm@10998
   391
operation;
wenzelm@10998
   392
nipkow@10868
   393
* HOLCF: infix "`" has been renamed "$"; the symbol syntax is \<cdot>;
nipkow@10856
   394
wenzelm@10391
   395
* Isar: 'obtain' no longer declares "that" fact as simp/intro;
wenzelm@10391
   396
wenzelm@10401
   397
* Isar/HOL: method 'induct' now handles non-atomic goals; as a
wenzelm@10401
   398
consequence, it is no longer monotonic wrt. the local goal context
wenzelm@10401
   399
(which is now passed through the inductive cases);
wenzelm@10401
   400
wenzelm@10976
   401
* Document preparation: renamed standard symbols \<ll> to \<lless> and
wenzelm@10976
   402
\<gg> to \<ggreater>;
wenzelm@10976
   403
nipkow@10224
   404
wenzelm@10245
   405
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@10245
   406
wenzelm@10858
   407
* \isabellestyle{NAME} selects version of Isabelle output (currently
wenzelm@10858
   408
available: are "it" for near math-mode best-style output, "sl" for
wenzelm@10858
   409
slanted text style, and "tt" for plain type-writer; if no
wenzelm@10858
   410
\isabellestyle command is given, output is according to slanted
wenzelm@10858
   411
type-writer);
wenzelm@10858
   412
wenzelm@10322
   413
* support sub/super scripts (for single symbols only), input syntax is
wenzelm@10322
   414
like this: "A\<^sup>*" or "A\<^sup>\<star>";
wenzelm@10322
   415
wenzelm@10858
   416
* some more standard symbols; see Appendix A of the system manual for
wenzelm@11062
   417
the complete list of symbols defined in isabellesym.sty;
wenzelm@10858
   418
wenzelm@10998
   419
* improved isabelle style files; more abstract symbol implementation
wenzelm@10998
   420
(should now use \isamath{...} and \isatext{...} in custom symbol
wenzelm@10998
   421
definitions);
wenzelm@10998
   422
wenzelm@10634
   423
* antiquotation @{goals} and @{subgoals} for output of *dynamic* goals
wenzelm@10634
   424
state; Note that presentation of goal states does not conform to
wenzelm@10634
   425
actual human-readable proof documents.  Please do not include goal
wenzelm@10634
   426
states into document output unless you really know what you are doing!
wenzelm@10322
   427
wenzelm@11062
   428
* proper indentation of antiquoted output with proportional LaTeX
wenzelm@11062
   429
fonts;
wenzelm@10862
   430
wenzelm@11050
   431
* no_document ML operator temporarily disables LaTeX document
wenzelm@11050
   432
generation;
wenzelm@11050
   433
wenzelm@11062
   434
* isatool unsymbolize tunes sources for plain ASCII communication;
wenzelm@11062
   435
wenzelm@10322
   436
wenzelm@10306
   437
*** Isar ***
wenzelm@10306
   438
wenzelm@10547
   439
* Pure: Isar now suffers initial goal statements to contain unbound
wenzelm@10547
   440
schematic variables (this does not conform to actual readable proof
wenzelm@10547
   441
documents, due to unpredictable outcome and non-compositional proof
wenzelm@10547
   442
checking); users who know what they are doing may use schematic goals
wenzelm@10547
   443
for Prolog-style synthesis of proven results;
wenzelm@10547
   444
wenzelm@10391
   445
* Pure: assumption method (an implicit finishing) now handles actual
wenzelm@10391
   446
rules as well;
wenzelm@10391
   447
wenzelm@10391
   448
* Pure: improved 'obtain' --- moved to Pure, insert "that" into
wenzelm@10391
   449
initial goal, declare "that" only as Pure intro (only for single
wenzelm@10391
   450
steps); the "that" rule assumption may now be involved in implicit
wenzelm@10391
   451
finishing, thus ".." becomes a feasible for trivial obtains;
wenzelm@10391
   452
wenzelm@10391
   453
* Pure: default proof step now includes 'intro_classes'; thus trivial
wenzelm@10391
   454
instance proofs may be performed by "..";
wenzelm@10391
   455
wenzelm@10391
   456
* Pure: ?thesis / ?this / "..." now work for pure meta-level
wenzelm@10391
   457
statements as well;
wenzelm@10306
   458
wenzelm@11097
   459
* Pure: more robust selection of calculational rules;
wenzelm@11097
   460
wenzelm@10858
   461
* Pure: the builtin notion of 'finished' goal now includes the ==-refl
wenzelm@10858
   462
rule (as well as the assumption rule);
wenzelm@10858
   463
wenzelm@10858
   464
* Pure: 'thm_deps' command visualizes dependencies of theorems and
wenzelm@10858
   465
lemmas, using the graph browser tool;
wenzelm@10858
   466
wenzelm@10944
   467
* Pure: predict failure of "show" in interactive mode;
wenzelm@10944
   468
wenzelm@11016
   469
* Pure: 'thms_containing' now takes actual terms as arguments;
wenzelm@11016
   470
wenzelm@10401
   471
* HOL: improved method 'induct' --- now handles non-atomic goals
wenzelm@10401
   472
(potential INCOMPATIBILITY); tuned error handling;
wenzelm@10401
   473
wenzelm@10557
   474
* HOL: cases and induct rules now provide explicit hints about the
wenzelm@10547
   475
number of facts to be consumed (0 for "type" and 1 for "set" rules);
wenzelm@10547
   476
any remaining facts are inserted into the goal verbatim;
wenzelm@10547
   477
wenzelm@10858
   478
* HOL: local contexts (aka cases) may now contain term bindings as
wenzelm@10858
   479
well; the 'cases' and 'induct' methods new provide a ?case binding for
wenzelm@10858
   480
the result to be shown in each case;
wenzelm@10858
   481
wenzelm@10770
   482
* HOL: added 'recdef_tc' command;
wenzelm@10770
   483
wenzelm@11016
   484
* isatool convert assists in eliminating legacy ML scripts;
wenzelm@11016

wenzelm@10245
   487
*** HOL ***
wenzelm@10245
   488
wenzelm@10245
   489
* HOL/Library: a collection of generic theories to be used together
wenzelm@10245
   490
with main HOL; the theory loader path already includes this directory
wenzelm@10245
   491
by default; the following existing theories have been moved here:
wenzelm@10245
   492
HOL/Induct/Multiset, HOL/Induct/Acc (as Accessible_Part), HOL/While
wenzelm@10337
   493
(as While_Combinator), HOL/Lex/Prefix (as List_Prefix);
wenzelm@10245
   494
wenzelm@10966
   495
* HOL/Unix: "Some aspects of Unix file-system security", a typical
wenzelm@10966
   496
modelling and verification task performed in Isabelle/HOL +
wenzelm@10966
   497
Isabelle/Isar + Isabelle document preparation (by Markus Wenzel).
wenzelm@10966
   498
wenzelm@11094
   499
* HOL/Algebra: special summation operator SUM no longer exists, it has
wenzelm@11094
   500
been replaced by setsum; infix 'assoc' now has priority 50 (like
wenzelm@11094
   501
'dvd'); axiom 'one_not_zero' has been moved from axclass 'ring' to
wenzelm@11094
   502
'domain', this makes the theory consistent with mathematical
wenzelm@11094
   503
literature;
wenzelm@11094
   504
wenzelm@10514
   505
* HOL basics: added overloaded operations "inverse" and "divide"
wenzelm@10726
   506
(infix "/"), syntax for generic "abs" operation, generic summation
wenzelm@11094
   507
operator \<Sum>;
wenzelm@10452
   508
wenzelm@10391
   509
* HOL/typedef: simplified package, provide more useful rules (see also
wenzelm@10391
   510
HOL/subset.thy);
wenzelm@10391
   511
wenzelm@10915
   512
* HOL/datatype: induction rule for arbitrarily branching datatypes is
wenzelm@10915
   513
now expressed as a proper nested rule (old-style tactic scripts may
wenzelm@10915
   514
require atomize_strip_tac to cope with non-atomic premises);
wenzelm@10915
   515
wenzelm@10915
   516
* HOL: renamed theory "Prod" to "Product_Type", renamed "split" rule
wenzelm@10915
   517
to "split_conv" (old name still available for compatibility);
wenzelm@10915
   518
wenzelm@10915
   519
* HOL: improved concrete syntax for strings (e.g. allows translation
wenzelm@10915
   520
rules with string literals);
wenzelm@10915
   521
paulson@12245
   522
* HOL-Real-Hyperreal: this extends HOL-Real with the hyperreals
paulson@12245
   523
 and Fleuriot's mechanization of analysis, including the transcendental
paulson@12245
   524
 functions for the reals;
paulson@10756
   525
wenzelm@11094
   526
* HOL/Real, HOL/Hyperreal: improved arithmetic simplification;

paulson@10474
   529
*** CTT ***
paulson@10474
   530
wenzelm@10547
   531
* CTT: x-symbol support for Pi, Sigma, -->, : (membership); note that
wenzelm@10547
   532
"lam" is displayed as TWO lambda-symbols
paulson@10474
   533
wenzelm@10547
   534
* CTT: theory Main now available, containing everything (that is, Bool
wenzelm@10547

*** General ***
wenzelm@10391
   539
wenzelm@10547
   540
* Pure: the Simplifier has been implemented properly as a derived rule
wenzelm@10547
   541
outside of the actual kernel (at last!); the overall performance
wenzelm@10547
   542
penalty in practical applications is about 50%, while reliability of
wenzelm@10547
   543
the Isabelle inference kernel has been greatly improved;
wenzelm@10547
   544
wenzelm@11112
   545
* print modes "brackets" and "no_brackets" control output of nested =>
wenzelm@11112
   546
(types) and ==> (props); the default behaviour is "brackets";
wenzelm@11112
   547
wenzelm@10391
   548
* Provers: fast_tac (and friends) now handle actual object-logic rules
wenzelm@10391
   549

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES ***
paulson@8014
   561
wenzelm@8848
   562
* HOL: simplification of natural numbers is much changed; to partly
wenzelm@8848
   563
recover the old behaviour (e.g. to prevent n+n rewriting to #2*n)
wenzelm@8848
   564
issue the following ML commands:
wenzelm@8848
   565
wenzelm@8848
   566
  Delsimprocs Nat_Numeral_Simprocs.cancel_numerals;
wenzelm@8848
   567
  Delsimprocs [Nat_Numeral_Simprocs.combine_numerals];
paulson@8788
   568
wenzelm@10129
   569
* HOL: simplification no longer dives into case-expressions; this is
wenzelm@10129
   570
controlled by "t.weak_case_cong" for each datatype t;
wenzelm@10003
   571
wenzelm@10003
   572
* HOL: nat_less_induct renamed to less_induct;
wenzelm@10003
   573
wenzelm@10003
   574
* HOL: systematic renaming of the SOME (Eps) rules, may use isatool
wenzelm@10003
   575
fixsome to patch .thy and .ML sources automatically;
paulson@8967
   576
wenzelm@10003
   577
  select_equality  -> some_equality
wenzelm@10003
   578
  select_eq_Ex     -> some_eq_ex
wenzelm@10003
   579
  selectI2EX       -> someI2_ex
wenzelm@10003
   580
  selectI2         -> someI2
wenzelm@10003
   581
  selectI          -> someI
wenzelm@10003
   582
  select1_equality -> some1_equality
wenzelm@10003
   583
  Eps_sym_eq       -> some_sym_eq_trivial
wenzelm@10003
   584
  Eps_eq           -> some_eq_trivial
wenzelm@10003
   585
wenzelm@10003
   586
* HOL: exhaust_tac on datatypes superceded by new generic case_tac;
wenzelm@10003
   587
wenzelm@10003
   588
* HOL: removed obsolete theorem binding expand_if (refer to split_if
wenzelm@10003
   589
instead);
wenzelm@10003
   590
wenzelm@10003
   591
* HOL: the recursion equations generated by 'recdef' are now called
wenzelm@10003
   592
f.simps instead of f.rules;
wenzelm@10003
   593
wenzelm@10003
   594
* HOL: qed_spec_mp now also handles bounded ALL as well;
wenzelm@10003
   595
wenzelm@10003
   596
* HOL: 0 is now overloaded, so the type constraint ":: nat" may
wenzelm@10003
   597
sometimes be needed;
wenzelm@10003
   598
wenzelm@10003
   599
* HOL: the constant for "f``x" is now "image" rather than "op ``";
paulson@8014
   600
paulson@10065
   601
* HOL: the constant for "f-``x" is now "vimage" rather than "op -``";
paulson@10065
   602
wenzelm@9330
   603
* HOL: the disjoint sum is now "<+>" instead of "Plus"; the cartesian
wenzelm@9330
   604
product is now "<*>" instead of "Times"; the lexicographic product is
wenzelm@9330
   605
now "<*lex*>" instead of "**";
nipkow@8705
   606
wenzelm@10003
   607
* HOL: theory Sexp is now in HOL/Induct examples (it used to be part
wenzelm@10003
   608
of main HOL, but was unused); better use HOL's datatype package;
paulson@9971
   609
wenzelm@10137
   610
* HOL: removed "symbols" syntax for constant "override" of theory Map;
wenzelm@10137
   611
the old syntax may be recovered as follows:
wenzelm@10137
   612
wenzelm@10137
   613
  syntax (symbols)
wenzelm@10137
   614
    override  :: "('a ~=> 'b) => ('a ~=> 'b) => ('a ~=> 'b)"
wenzelm@10137
   615
      (infixl "\\<oplus>" 100)
wenzelm@10137
   616
wenzelm@8848
   617
* HOL/Real: "rabs" replaced by overloaded "abs" function;
wenzelm@8848
   618
wenzelm@8887
   619
* HOL/ML: even fewer consts are declared as global (see theories Ord,
wenzelm@8887
   620
Lfp, Gfp, WF); this only affects ML packages that refer to const names
wenzelm@8887
   621
internally;
wenzelm@8887
   622
wenzelm@10003
   623
* HOL and ZF: syntax for quotienting wrt an equivalence relation
wenzelm@10003
   624
changed from A/r to A//r;
wenzelm@9908
   625
wenzelm@10003
   626
* ZF: new treatment of arithmetic (nat & int) may break some old
wenzelm@10003
   627
proofs;
wenzelm@8921
   628
wenzelm@10003
   629
* Isar: renamed some attributes (RS -> THEN, simplify -> simplified,
wenzelm@10003
   630
rulify -> rule_format, elimify -> elim_format, ...);
paulson@9542
   631
wenzelm@9941
   632
* Isar/Provers: intro/elim/dest attributes changed; renamed
wenzelm@9941
   633
intro/intro!/intro!! flags to intro!/intro/intro? (in most cases, one
wenzelm@9937
   634
should have to change intro!! to intro? only); replaced "delrule" by
wenzelm@9937
   635
"rule del";
wenzelm@9437
   636
wenzelm@9612
   637
* Isar/HOL: renamed "intrs" to "intros" in inductive definitions;
wenzelm@9612
   638
wenzelm@9437
   639
* Provers: strengthened force_tac by using new first_best_tac;
oheimb@9402
   640
wenzelm@10003
   641
* LaTeX document preparation: several changes of isabelle.sty (see
wenzelm@10003
   642
lib/texinputs);
wenzelm@8729
   643
paulson@8014
   644
wenzelm@8487
   645
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@8358
   646
wenzelm@9198
   647
* formal comments (text blocks etc.) in new-style theories may now
wenzelm@9753
   648
contain antiquotations of thm/prop/term/typ/text to be presented
wenzelm@9753
   649
according to latex print mode; concrete syntax is like this:
wenzelm@9753
   650
@{term[show_types] "f(x) = a + x"};
wenzelm@9198
   651
wenzelm@8358
   652
* isatool mkdir provides easy setup of Isabelle session directories,
wenzelm@8518
   653
including proper document sources;
wenzelm@8358
   654
wenzelm@8358
   655
* generated LaTeX sources are now deleted after successful run
wenzelm@8358
   656
(isatool document -c); may retain a copy somewhere else via -D option
wenzelm@8358
   657
of isatool usedir;
wenzelm@8358
   658
wenzelm@8566
   659
* isatool usedir -D now lets isatool latex -o sty update the Isabelle
wenzelm@10003
   660
style files, achieving self-contained LaTeX sources and simplifying
wenzelm@10003
   661
LaTeX debugging;
wenzelm@8566
   662
wenzelm@8518
   663
* old-style theories now produce (crude) LaTeX output as well;
wenzelm@8358
   664
wenzelm@9057
   665
* browser info session directories are now self-contained (may be put
wenzelm@9437
   666
on WWW server seperately); improved graphs of nested sessions; removed
wenzelm@9437
   667
graph for 'all sessions';
wenzelm@9057
   668
wenzelm@10003
   669
* several improvements in isabelle style files; \isabellestyle{it}
wenzelm@10003
   670
produces fake math mode output; \isamarkupheader is now \section by
wenzelm@10003
   671
default; see lib/texinputs/isabelle.sty etc.;
wenzelm@9489
   672
wenzelm@8358
   673
wenzelm@8184
   674
*** Isar ***
wenzelm@8184
   675
wenzelm@10003
   676
* Isar/Pure: local results and corresponding term bindings are now
wenzelm@10003
   677
subject to Hindley-Milner polymorphism (similar to ML); this
wenzelm@10003
   678
accommodates incremental type-inference very nicely;
wenzelm@8283
   679
wenzelm@10003
   680
* Isar/Pure: new derived language element 'obtain' supports
wenzelm@10003
   681
generalized existence reasoning;
wenzelm@8621
   682
wenzelm@10003
   683
* Isar/Pure: new calculational elements 'moreover' and 'ultimately'
wenzelm@10003
   684
support accumulation of results, without applying any rules yet;
wenzelm@10003
   685
useful to collect intermediate results without explicit name
wenzelm@10003
   686
references, and for use with transitivity rules with more than 2
wenzelm@10003
   687
premises;
wenzelm@8184
   688
wenzelm@10003
   689
* Isar/Pure: scalable support for case-analysis type proofs: new
wenzelm@10003
   690
'case' language element refers to local contexts symbolically, as
wenzelm@10003
   691
produced by certain proof methods; internally, case names are attached
wenzelm@10003
   692
to theorems as "tags";
wenzelm@8440
   693
wenzelm@10003
   694
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'hide' removes declarations from
wenzelm@9330
   695
class/type/const name spaces;
wenzelm@9330
   696
wenzelm@10003
   697
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'defs' supports option "(overloaded)" to
wenzelm@9330
   698
indicate potential overloading;
wenzelm@9330
   699
wenzelm@10003
   700
* Isar/Pure: changed syntax of local blocks from {{ }} to { };
wenzelm@8621
   701
wenzelm@10003
   702
* Isar/Pure: syntax of sorts made 'inner', i.e. have to write
wenzelm@10003
   703
"{a,b,c}" instead of {a,b,c};
wenzelm@9011
   704
wenzelm@10003
   705
* Isar/Pure now provides its own version of intro/elim/dest
wenzelm@10003
   706
attributes; useful for building new logics, but beware of confusion
wenzelm@10003
   707
with the version in Provers/classical;
wenzelm@9612
   708
wenzelm@10003
   709
* Isar/Pure: the local context of (non-atomic) goals is provided via
wenzelm@10003
   710
case name 'antecedent';
wenzelm@8440
   711
wenzelm@10003
   712
* Isar/Pure: removed obsolete 'transfer' attribute (transfer of thms
wenzelm@10003
   713
to the current context is now done automatically);
wenzelm@9383
   714
wenzelm@10003
   715
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'method_setup' provides a simple interface
wenzelm@10003
   716
for definining proof methods in ML;
wenzelm@9612
   717
wenzelm@10003
   718
* Isar/Provers: intro/elim/dest attributes changed; renamed
wenzelm@9941
   719
intro/intro!/intro!! flags to intro!/intro/intro? (INCOMPATIBILITY, in
wenzelm@9941
   720
most cases, one should have to change intro!! to intro? only);
wenzelm@9941
   721
replaced "delrule" by "rule del";
wenzelm@8283
   722
wenzelm@10003
   723
* Isar/Provers: new 'hypsubst' method, plain 'subst' method and
wenzelm@10003
   724
'symmetric' attribute (the latter supercedes [RS sym]);
wenzelm@10003
   725
wenzelm@10003
   726
* Isar/Provers: splitter support (via 'split' attribute and 'simp'
wenzelm@10003
   727
method modifier); 'simp' method: 'only:' modifier removes loopers as
wenzelm@10003
   728
well (including splits);
wenzelm@10003
   729
wenzelm@10003
   730
* Isar/Provers: Simplifier and Classical methods now support all kind
wenzelm@10003
   731
of modifiers used in the past, including 'cong', 'iff', etc.
wenzelm@10003
   732
wenzelm@10003
   733
* Isar/Provers: added 'fastsimp' and 'clarsimp' methods (combination
wenzelm@10003
   734
of Simplifier and Classical reasoner);
wenzelm@10003
   735
wenzelm@10003
   736
* Isar/HOL: new proof method 'cases' and improved version of 'induct'
wenzelm@10003
   737
now support named cases; major packages (inductive, datatype, primrec,
wenzelm@10003
   738
recdef) support case names and properly name parameters;
wenzelm@9612
   739
wenzelm@10003
   740
* Isar/HOL: new transitivity rules for substitution in inequalities --
wenzelm@10003
   741
monotonicity conditions are extracted to be proven at end of
wenzelm@10003
   742
calculations;
wenzelm@10003
   743
wenzelm@10003
   744
* Isar/HOL: removed 'case_split' thm binding, should use 'cases' proof
wenzelm@10003
   745
method anyway;
wenzelm@10003
   746
wenzelm@10003
   747
* Isar/HOL: removed old expand_if = split_if; theorems if_splits =
wenzelm@10003
   748
split_if split_if_asm; datatype package provides theorems foo.splits =
wenzelm@10003
   749
foo.split foo.split_asm for each datatype;
wenzelm@10003
   750
wenzelm@10003
   751
* Isar/HOL: tuned inductive package, rename "intrs" to "intros"
wenzelm@10003
   752
(potential INCOMPATIBILITY), emulation of mk_cases feature for proof
wenzelm@10003
   753
scripts: new 'inductive_cases' command and 'ind_cases' method; (Note:
wenzelm@10003
   754
use "(cases (simplified))" method in proper proof texts);
wenzelm@10003
   755
wenzelm@10003
   756
* Isar/HOL: added global 'arith_split' attribute for 'arith' method;
wenzelm@10003
   757
wenzelm@10003
   758
* Isar: names of theorems etc. may be natural numbers as well;
wenzelm@10003
   759
wenzelm@10003
   760
* Isar: 'pr' command: optional arguments for goals_limit and
wenzelm@9724
   761
ProofContext.prems_limit; no longer prints theory contexts, but only
wenzelm@9724
   762
proof states;
wenzelm@8487
   763
wenzelm@10003
   764
* Isar: diagnostic commands 'pr', 'thm', 'prop', 'term', 'typ' admit
wenzelm@8518
   765
additional print modes to be specified; e.g. "pr(latex)" will print
wenzelm@8518
   766
proof state according to the Isabelle LaTeX style;
wenzelm@8487
   767
wenzelm@10003
   768
* Isar: improved support for emulating tactic scripts, including proof
wenzelm@9612
   769
methods 'rule_tac' etc., 'cut_tac', 'thin_tac', 'subgoal_tac',
wenzelm@9612
   770
'rename_tac', 'rotate_tac', 'tactic', and 'case_tac' / 'induct_tac'
wenzelm@9612
   771
(for HOL datatypes);
wenzelm@8534
   772
wenzelm@10003
   773
* Isar: simplified (more robust) goal selection of proof methods: 1st
wenzelm@10003
   774
goal, all goals, or explicit goal specifier (tactic emulation); thus
wenzelm@10003
   775
'proof method scripts' have to be in depth-first order;
wenzelm@8673
   776
wenzelm@10003
   777
* Isar: tuned 'let' syntax: replaced 'as' keyword by 'and';
wenzelm@8729
   778
wenzelm@10003
   779
* Isar: removed 'help' command, which hasn't been too helpful anyway;
wenzelm@10003
   780
should instead use individual commands for printing items
wenzelm@10003
   781
(print_commands, print_methods etc.);
wenzelm@9224
   782
wenzelm@10003
   783
* Isar: added 'nothing' --- the empty list of theorems;

wenzelm@10080
   789
corresponding virtual machine and a specification of its bytecode
wenzelm@10080
   790
verifier and a lightweight bytecode verifier, including proofs of

   813
recursive procedures, by David von Oheimb;
wenzelm@10164
   814
wenzelm@10003
   815
* HOL/Lambda: converted into new-style theory and document;
paulson@9542

wenzelm@10003
   817
* HOL/ex/Multiquote: example of multiple nested quotations and
wenzelm@10003
   818
anti-quotations -- basically a generalized version of de-Bruijn
wenzelm@10003
   819
representation; very useful in avoiding lifting of operations;
wenzelm@8848
   820
wenzelm@9612
   821
* HOL/record: added general record equality rule to simpset; fixed

   823
well; admit "r" as field name;

Types nat and int belong to this axclass;
paulson@8967
   830
wenzelm@10003
   831
* HOL: greatly improved simplification involving numerals of type nat, int, real:
paulson@8788
   832
   (i + #8 + j) = Suc k simplifies to  #7 + (i + j) = k
paulson@8832
   833
   i*j + k + j*#3*i     simplifies to  #4*(i*j) + k
paulson@8832
   834
  two terms #m*u and #n*u are replaced by #(m+n)*u
paulson@8832
   835
    (where #m, #n and u can implicitly be 1; this is simproc combine_numerals)
paulson@8832
   836
  and the term/formula #m*u+x ~~ #n*u+y simplifies simplifies to #(m-n)+x ~~ y
paulson@8832
   837
    or x ~~ #(n-m)+y, where ~~ is one of = < <= or - (simproc cancel_numerals);
paulson@8736

* HOL: meson_tac is available (previously in ex/meson.ML); it is a
wenzelm@10003
   840
powerful prover for predicate logic but knows nothing of clasets; see
wenzelm@10003

ex/mesontest.ML and ex/mesontest2.ML for example applications;
paulson@9835
   842
wenzelm@8848
   843
* HOL: new version of "case_tac" subsumes both boolean case split and
wenzelm@8440
   844
"exhaust_tac" on datatypes; INCOMPATIBILITY: exhaust_tac no longer
wenzelm@8518
   845
exists, may define val exhaust_tac = case_tac for ad-hoc portability;
wenzelm@8440
   846
wenzelm@8848
   847
* HOL: simplification no longer dives into case-expressions: only the
wenzelm@10129
   848
selector expression is simplified, but not the remaining arms; to
wenzelm@10129
   849
enable full simplification of case-expressions for datatype t, you may
wenzelm@10129
   850
remove t.weak_case_cong from the simpset, either globally (Delcongs
wenzelm@10129
   851
[thm"t.weak_case_cong"];) or locally (delcongs [...]).

   853
* HOL/recdef: the recursion equations generated by 'recdef' for
wenzelm@8848
   854
function 'f' are now called f.simps instead of f.rules; if all
wenzelm@8848
   855
termination conditions are proved automatically, these simplification
wenzelm@8848
   856
rules are added to the simpset, as in primrec; rules may be named
wenzelm@8848
   857
individually as well, resulting in a separate list of theorems for
wenzelm@8848
   858
each equation;
wenzelm@8848
   859
wenzelm@9489
   860
* HOL/While is a new theory that provides a while-combinator. It
wenzelm@9489
   861
permits the definition of tail-recursive functions without the
wenzelm@9489
   862
provision of a termination measure. The latter is necessary once the
wenzelm@9489
   863
invariant proof rule for while is applied.
nipkow@9457

wenzelm@10003
   865
* HOL: new (overloaded) notation for the set of elements below/above
wenzelm@10003

some element: {..u}, {..u(}, {l..}, {)l..}. See theory SetInterval.
nipkow@8925

wenzelm@10003
   870
* HOL: new tactic induct_thm_tac: thm -> string -> int -> tactic
nipkow@9746
   871
induct_tac th "x1 ... xn" expects th to have a conclusion of the form
nipkow@9746
   872
P v1 ... vn and abbreviates res_inst_tac [("v1","x1"),...,("vn","xn")] th;
nipkow@9746

* HOL/Real: "rabs" replaced by overloaded "abs" function;
nipkow@9737
   875
wenzelm@10003
   876
* HOL: theory Sexp now in HOL/Induct examples (it used to be part of
wenzelm@10003
   877
main HOL, but was unused);
nipkow@8626
   878
wenzelm@10003
   879
* HOL: fewer consts declared as global (e.g. have to refer to
wenzelm@10003
   880
"Lfp.lfp" instead of "lfp" internally; affects ML packages only);
wenzelm@8887
   881
wenzelm@10003
   882
* HOL: tuned AST representation of nested pairs, avoiding bogus output
wenzelm@10003
   883
in case of overlap with user translations (e.g. judgements over
wenzelm@10003
   884
tuples); (note that the underlying logical represenation is still
wenzelm@10003

   891
expressions over nat and int;
paulson@9542
   892
wenzelm@10003
   893
* ZF: new treatment of nat to minimize type-checking: all operators
wenzelm@10003
   894
coerce their operands to a natural number using the function natify,
wenzelm@10003
   895
making the algebraic laws unconditional;
paulson@9542
   896
wenzelm@10003
   897
* ZF: as above, for int: operators coerce their operands to an integer
wenzelm@10003
   898
using the function intify;
paulson@9542
   899
wenzelm@10003
   900
* ZF: the integer library now contains many of the usual laws for the
wenzelm@10003
   901
orderings, including $<=, and monotonicity laws for $+ and $*;
paulson@9542
   902
wenzelm@10003
   903
* ZF: new example ZF/ex/NatSum to demonstrate integer arithmetic
wenzelm@10003
   904
simplification;
paulson@9388
   905
wenzelm@10003
   906
* FOL and ZF: AddIffs now available, giving theorems of the form P<->Q
wenzelm@10003

wenzelm@10003
   914
wenzelm@10003
   915
* Provers: new functions rulify/rulify_no_asm: thm -> thm for turning
wenzelm@10003

wenzelm@10003
   917
wenzelm@9941
   918
* Provers: delrules now handles destruct rules as well (no longer need
wenzelm@9941
   919
explicit make_elim);
wenzelm@9941
   920
wenzelm@10003
   921
* Provers: Blast_tac now warns of and ignores "weak elimination rules" e.g.
wenzelm@10003
   922
  [| inj ?f;          ?f ?x = ?f ?y; ?x = ?y ==> ?W |] ==> ?W
wenzelm@10003
   923
use instead the strong form,
wenzelm@10003
   924
  [| inj ?f; ~ ?W ==> ?f ?x = ?f ?y; ?x = ?y ==> ?W |] ==> ?W
wenzelm@10003
   925
in HOL, FOL and ZF the function cla_make_elim will create such rules
wenzelm@10003
   926
from destruct-rules;
wenzelm@9489
   927
wenzelm@9709
   928
* Provers: Simplifier.easy_setup provides a fast path to basic
wenzelm@9709
   929
Simplifier setup for new object-logics;
wenzelm@9709

* Pure: AST translation rules no longer require constant head on LHS;
wenzelm@9349
   932
wenzelm@9709
   933
* Pure: improved name spaces: ambiguous output is qualified; support
wenzelm@9709
   934
for hiding of names;
wenzelm@8729
   935
wenzelm@10003
   936
* system: smart setup of canonical ML_HOME, ISABELLE_INTERFACE, and
wenzelm@10003
   937
XSYMBOL_HOME; no longer need to do manual configuration in most
wenzelm@10003
   938
situations;
wenzelm@10003
   939
wenzelm@9709
   940
* system: compression of ML heaps images may now be controlled via -c
wenzelm@9709
   941
option of isabelle and isatool usedir (currently only observed by
wenzelm@9709
   942
Poly/ML);
wenzelm@8358
   943
wenzelm@9981
   944
* system: isatool installfonts may handle X-Symbol fonts as well (very
wenzelm@9981
   945
useful for remote X11);
wenzelm@9981
   946
wenzelm@9709
   947
* system: provide TAGS file for Isabelle sources;
wenzelm@9052
   948
wenzelm@9288
   949
* ML: infix 'OF' is a version of 'MRS' with more appropriate argument
wenzelm@9288
   950

wenzelm@9288
   951
wenzelm@8994
   952
* ML: renamed flags Syntax.trace_norm_ast to Syntax.trace_ast; global
wenzelm@8994
   953
timing flag supersedes proof_timing and Toplevel.trace;
wenzelm@8994
   954
wenzelm@10003
   955
* ML: new combinators |>> and |>>> for incremental transformations
wenzelm@10003
   956
with secondary results (e.g. certain theory extensions):
wenzelm@10003
   957
wenzelm@9330
   958
* ML: PureThy.add_defs gets additional argument to indicate potential
wenzelm@9330
   959
overloading (usually false);
wenzelm@9330
   960
wenzelm@10003
   961

paulson@6922
   971
* HOL: The THEN and ELSE parts of conditional expressions (if P then x else y)
paulson@6922
   972
are no longer simplified.  (This allows the simplifier to unfold recursive
paulson@6922
   973
functional programs.)  To restore the old behaviour, declare
wenzelm@7215
   974
wenzelm@7215
   975
    Delcongs [if_weak_cong];
paulson@6922
   976
wenzelm@6269
   977
* HOL: Removed the obsolete syntax "Compl A"; use -A for set
wenzelm@6269
   978
complement;
paulson@5931
   979
wenzelm@6269
   980
* HOL: the predicate "inj" is now defined by translation to "inj_on";
paulson@6174
   981
berghofe@7847
   982
* HOL/datatype: mutual_induct_tac no longer exists --
berghofe@7847
   983
  use induct_tac "x_1 ... x_n" instead of mutual_induct_tac ["x_1", ..., "x_n"]
berghofe@7847
   984
wenzelm@6386
   985
* HOL/typedef: fixed type inference for representing set; type
wenzelm@6386
   986
arguments now have to occur explicitly on the rhs as type constraints;
wenzelm@6386
   987
wenzelm@6269
   988
* ZF: The con_defs part of an inductive definition may no longer refer
wenzelm@6269
   989
to constants declared in the same theory;
nipkow@6057
   990
wenzelm@6269
   991
* HOL, ZF: the function mk_cases, generated by the inductive
wenzelm@6269
   992
definition package, has lost an argument.  To simplify its result, it
wenzelm@6269
   993
uses the default simpset instead of a supplied list of theorems.
paulson@6141
   994
wenzelm@7215
   995
* HOL/List: the constructors of type list are now Nil and Cons;
wenzelm@7215
   996
nipkow@7619
   997
* Simplifier: the type of the infix ML functions
wenzelm@8729
   998
        setSSolver addSSolver setSolver addSolver
nipkow@7619
   999
is now  simpset * solver -> simpset  where `solver' is a new abstract type
nipkow@7619
  1000
for packaging solvers. A solver is created via
wenzelm@8729
  1001
        mk_solver: string -> (thm list -> int -> tactic) -> solver
nipkow@7619
  1002
where the string argument is only a comment.

wenzelm@6343
  1007
* Provers/Arith/fast_lin_arith.ML contains a functor for creating a
wenzelm@6343
  1008
decision procedure for linear arithmetic. Currently it is used for
wenzelm@7593
  1009
types `nat', `int', and `real' in HOL (see below); it can, should and
wenzelm@7593
  1010
will be instantiated for other types and logics as well.
paulson@6069
  1011
nipkow@7324
  1012
* The simplifier now accepts rewrite rules with flexible heads, eg
nipkow@7324
  1013
     hom ?f ==> ?f(?x+?y) = ?f ?x + ?f ?y
nipkow@7324
  1014
  They are applied like any rule with a non-pattern lhs, i.e. by first-order
nipkow@7324
  1015
  matching.

tactical theorem proving; together with the ProofGeneral/isar user
wenzelm@7215

wenzelm@9612
  1027
* improved and simplified presentation of theories: better HTML markup
wenzelm@9612
  1028
(including colors), graph views in several sizes; isatool usedir now
wenzelm@9612
  1029

  1032
wenzelm@7252

wenzelm@7791
  1036

wenzelm@6751
  1039
* Isabelle manuals now also available as PDF;

  1040
wenzelm@6449
  1041
* theory loader rewritten from scratch (may not be fully

  1042
bug-compatible); old loadpath variable has been replaced by show_path,
wenzelm@6671
  1043
add_path, del_path, reset_path functions; new operations such as

  1044
update_thy, touch_thy, remove_thy, use/update_thy_only (see also
wenzelm@7593
  1045

option -p DIR installs standalone binaries;
wenzelm@7215
  1049
wenzelm@7215

are ignored; quantified subformulae are ignored unless they are
wenzelm@6343
  1107
positive universal or negative existential. The tactic has to be
wenzelm@6343
  1108
invoked by hand and can be a little bit slow. In particular, the
wenzelm@6343
  1109
running time is exponential in the number of occurrences of `min' and
wenzelm@6343
  1110
`max', and `-' on `nat'.
nipkow@6131
  1111
wenzelm@6343
  1112
2. fast_arith_tac is a cut-down version of arith_tac: it only takes
wenzelm@6343
  1113
(negated) (in)equalities among the premises and the conclusion into
wenzelm@6343
  1114
account (i.e. no compound formulae) and does not know about `min' and
wenzelm@6343
  1115
`max', and `-' on `nat'. It is fast and is used automatically by the
wenzelm@6343
  1116
simplifier.
nipkow@6131
  1117
wenzelm@6343
  1118
NB: At the moment, these decision procedures do not cope with mixed
wenzelm@6343
  1119
nat/int formulae where the two parts interact, such as `m < n ==>
wenzelm@6343
  1120
int(m) < int(n)'.
oheimb@6028
  1121
wenzelm@7215
  1122
* HOL/Numeral provides a generic theory of numerals (encoded
wenzelm@7313
  1123
efficiently as bit strings); setup for types nat/int/real is in place;
wenzelm@7215
  1124
INCOMPATIBILITY: since numeral syntax is now polymorphic, rather than
wenzelm@7215
  1125
int, existing theories and proof scripts may require a few additional
wenzelm@7215
  1126
type constraints;
wenzelm@7215
  1127
wenzelm@7215
  1128
* integer division and remainder can now be performed on constant
wenzelm@7215
  1129
arguments;
paulson@7157
  1130
wenzelm@7215
  1131
* many properties of integer multiplication, division and remainder
wenzelm@7215
  1132
are now available;
paulson@6922
  1133
paulson@7287
  1134
* An interface to the Stanford Validity Checker (SVC) is available through the
paulson@7287
  1135
tactic svc_tac.  Propositional tautologies and theorems of linear arithmetic
paulson@7287
  1136
are proved automatically.  SVC must be installed separately, and its results
paulson@7287
  1137
must be TAKEN ON TRUST (Isabelle does not check the proofs, but tags any
paulson@7287
  1138
invocation of the underlying oracle).  For SVC see

* HOL/Real/HahnBanach: the Hahn-Banach theorem for real vector spaces
wenzelm@7595
  1147
(in Isabelle/Isar) -- by Gertrud Bauer;
wenzelm@7595
  1148
wenzelm@7691
  1149
* HOL/BCV: generic model of bytecode verification, i.e. data-flow
wenzelm@7691
  1150
analysis for assembly languages with subtypes;
wenzelm@7691
  1151
wenzelm@6278
  1152
* HOL/TLA (Lamport's Temporal Logic of Actions): major reorganization
wenzelm@6278
  1153
-- avoids syntactic ambiguities and treats state, transition, and
wenzelm@6278
  1154
temporal levels more uniformly; introduces INCOMPATIBILITIES due to
wenzelm@6278
  1155
changed syntax and (many) tactics;
wenzelm@6278
  1156
wenzelm@7791
  1157
* HOL/inductive: Now also handles more general introduction rules such
wenzelm@7791
  1158
  as "ALL y. (y, x) : r --> y : acc r ==> x : acc r"; monotonicity
wenzelm@7791
  1159
  theorems are now maintained within the theory (maintained via the
wenzelm@7791
  1160
  "mono" attribute);
berghofe@7780
  1161
wenzelm@7238
  1162
* HOL/datatype: Now also handles arbitrarily branching datatypes
wenzelm@7238
  1163
  (using function types) such as
wenzelm@7238
  1164
wenzelm@7238
  1165
  datatype 'a tree = Atom 'a | Branch "nat => 'a tree"
berghofe@7047
  1166
wenzelm@7326
  1167
* HOL/record: record_simproc (part of the default simpset) takes care
wenzelm@7326
  1168
of selectors applied to updated records; record_split_tac is no longer
wenzelm@7327
  1169
part of the default claset; update_defs may now be removed from the
wenzelm@7327
  1170
simpset in many cases; COMPATIBILITY: old behavior achieved by
wenzelm@7326
  1171
wenzelm@7326
  1172
  claset_ref () := claset() addSWrapper record_split_wrapper;
wenzelm@7326
  1173
  Delsimprocs [record_simproc]
wenzelm@7326
  1174
wenzelm@6386
  1175
* HOL/typedef: fixed type inference for representing set; type
wenzelm@6386
  1176
arguments now have to occur explicitly on the rhs as type constraints;
wenzelm@6386
  1177
paulson@7287
  1178
* HOL/recdef (TFL): 'congs' syntax now expects comma separated list of theorem
paulson@7287
  1179
names rather than an ML expression;
paulson@7287
  1180
paulson@7287
  1181
* HOL/defer_recdef (TFL): like recdef but the well-founded relation can be
paulson@7287
  1182
supplied later.  Program schemes can be defined, such as
paulson@7287
  1183
    "While B C s = (if B s then While B C (C s) else s)"
paulson@7287
  1184
where the well-founded relation can be chosen after B and C have been given.
wenzelm@6563
  1185
wenzelm@7215
  1186
* HOL/List: the constructors of type list are now Nil and Cons;
wenzelm@7215
  1187
INCOMPATIBILITY: while [] and infix # syntax is still there, of
wenzelm@7215
  1188
course, ML tools referring to List.list.op # etc. have to be adapted;
wenzelm@7215
  1189
wenzelm@7238
  1190
* HOL_quantifiers flag superseded by "HOL" print mode, which is
wenzelm@7238
  1191
disabled by default; run isabelle with option -m HOL to get back to
wenzelm@7238
  1192
the original Gordon/HOL-style output;
wenzelm@7238
  1193
wenzelm@7238
  1194
* HOL/Ord.thy: new bounded quantifier syntax (input only): ALL x<y. P,
wenzelm@7238
  1195
ALL x<=y. P, EX x<y. P, EX x<=y. P;
wenzelm@7238
  1196
wenzelm@7238
  1197
* HOL basic syntax simplified (more orthogonal): all variants of
wenzelm@7238
  1198
All/Ex now support plain / symbolic / HOL notation; plain syntax for
wenzelm@7238
  1199
Eps operator is provided as well: "SOME x. P[x]";
wenzelm@7238
  1200
berghofe@7320
  1201
* HOL/Sum.thy: sum_case has been moved to HOL/Datatype;
wenzelm@7261
  1202
wenzelm@7280
  1203
* HOL/Univ.thy: infix syntax <*>, <+>, <**>, <+> eliminated and made
wenzelm@7280
  1204
thus available for user theories;
wenzelm@7280
  1205
wenzelm@7300
  1206
* HOLCF/IOA/Sequents: renamed 'Cons' to 'Consq' to avoid clash with
wenzelm@7300
  1207
HOL/List; hardly an INCOMPATIBILITY since '>>' syntax is used all the
wenzelm@7300
  1208
time;
wenzelm@7300
  1209
wenzelm@7986
  1210

paulson@7113
  1218
paulson@7113
  1219

paulson@6064
  1228
* new primrec section allows primitive recursive functions to be given
wenzelm@6269
  1229
directly (as in HOL) over datatypes and the natural numbers;
paulson@6064
  1230
wenzelm@6269
  1231
* new tactics induct_tac and exhaust_tac for induction (or case
wenzelm@6269
  1232
analysis) over datatypes and the natural numbers;
paulson@6064
  1233
paulson@6064
  1234
* the datatype declaration of type T now defines the recursor T_rec;
paulson@6064
  1235
paulson@6141
  1236
* simplification automatically does freeness reasoning for datatype
wenzelm@6269
  1237
constructors;
paulson@6141
  1238
wenzelm@6269
  1239
* automatic type-inference, with AddTCs command to insert new
wenzelm@6269
  1240
type-checking rules;
paulson@6155
  1241
wenzelm@6269
  1242
* datatype introduction rules are now added as Safe Introduction rules
wenzelm@6269
  1243
to the claset;
paulson@6155
  1244
wenzelm@6269
  1245
* the syntax "if P then x else y" is now available in addition to
wenzelm@6269

wenzelm@7420
  1253
* structures Vartab / Termtab (instances of TableFun) offer efficient

wenzelm@7420
  1255
wenzelm@6386
  1256
* AxClass.axclass_tac lost the theory argument;
wenzelm@6386
  1257
wenzelm@6343
  1258
* tuned current_goals_markers semantics: begin / end goal avoids
wenzelm@6343
  1259
printing empty lines;
wenzelm@6343
  1260
wenzelm@6343
  1261
* removed prs and prs_fn hook, which was broken because it did not
wenzelm@6343
  1262
include \n in its semantics, forcing writeln to add one
wenzelm@6343
  1263
uncoditionally; replaced prs_fn by writeln_fn; consider std_output:
wenzelm@6343
  1264
string -> unit if you really want to output text without newline;
wenzelm@6343
  1265
wenzelm@6343
  1266
* Symbol.output subject to print mode; INCOMPATIBILITY: defaults to
wenzelm@6343
  1267
plain output, interface builders may have to enable 'isabelle_font'
wenzelm@6343
  1268
mode to get Isabelle font glyphs as before;
wenzelm@6343
  1269
wenzelm@6343
  1270
* refined token_translation interface; INCOMPATIBILITY: output length
wenzelm@6343
  1271
now of type real instead of int;
wenzelm@6343
  1272
wenzelm@7196
  1273
* theory loader actions may be traced via new ThyInfo.add_hook
wenzelm@7196
  1274
interface (see src/Pure/Thy/thy_info.ML); example application: keep
wenzelm@7196
  1275
your own database of information attached to *whole* theories -- as
wenzelm@7196
  1276
opposed to intra-theory data slots offered via TheoryDataFun;
wenzelm@7196
  1277
wenzelm@7647
  1278
* proper handling of dangling sort hypotheses (at last!);
wenzelm@7647
  1279
Thm.strip_shyps and Drule.strip_shyps_warning take care of removing
wenzelm@7647
  1280
extra sort hypotheses that can be witnessed from the type signature;
wenzelm@7986
  1281
the force_strip_shyps flag is gone, any remaining shyps are simply
wenzelm@7986
  1282
left in the theorem (with a warning issued by strip_shyps_warning);

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES (see below for more details) ***
wenzelm@4842
  1290
wenzelm@5726
  1291
* several changes of automated proof tools;
wenzelm@5373
  1292
wenzelm@5726
  1293
* HOL: major changes to the inductive and datatype packages, including
wenzelm@5726
  1294
some minor incompatibilities of theory syntax;
berghofe@5214
  1295
wenzelm@5726
  1296
* HOL: renamed r^-1 to 'converse' from 'inverse'; 'inj_onto' is now
wenzelm@5217
  1297
called `inj_on';
paulson@5160
  1298
nipkow@5275
  1299
* HOL: removed duplicate thms in Arith:
nipkow@5275
  1300
  less_imp_add_less  should be replaced by  trans_less_add1
nipkow@5275
  1301
  le_imp_add_le      should be replaced by  trans_le_add1
paulson@5160
  1302
wenzelm@5726
  1303
* HOL: unary minus is now overloaded (new type constraints may be
wenzelm@5726
  1304
required);
paulson@5490
  1305
wenzelm@5726
  1306
* HOL and ZF: unary minus for integers is now #- instead of #~.  In
wenzelm@5726
  1307
ZF, expressions such as n#-1 must be changed to n#- 1, since #-1 is
wenzelm@5726
  1308
now taken as an integer constant.
paulson@5541
  1309
wenzelm@5726
  1310
* Pure: ML function 'theory_of' renamed to 'theory';
wenzelm@5397

wenzelm@5363
  1312
wenzelm@5127
  1313
*** Proof tools ***
nipkow@4880
  1314
nipkow@5657
  1315
* Simplifier:
nipkow@5657
  1316
  1. Asm_full_simp_tac is now more aggressive.
nipkow@5657
  1317
     1. It will sometimes reorient premises if that increases their power to
nipkow@5657
  1318
        simplify.
nipkow@5657
  1319
     2. It does no longer proceed strictly from left to right but may also
nipkow@5657
  1320
        rotate premises to achieve further simplification.
nipkow@5657
  1321
     For compatibility reasons there is now Asm_lr_simp_tac which is like the
nipkow@5657
  1322
     old Asm_full_simp_tac in that it does not rotate premises.
nipkow@5657
  1323
  2. The simplifier now knows a little bit about nat-arithmetic.
nipkow@4880
  1324
wenzelm@5127
  1325
* Classical reasoner: wrapper mechanism for the classical reasoner now
wenzelm@5127
  1326
allows for selected deletion of wrappers, by introduction of names for
wenzelm@5127
  1327
wrapper functionals.  This implies that addbefore, addSbefore,
wenzelm@5127
  1328
addaltern, and addSaltern now take a pair (name, tactic) as argument,
wenzelm@5127
  1329
and that adding two tactics with the same name overwrites the first
wenzelm@5127
  1330
one (emitting a warning).
oheimb@4824
  1331
  type wrapper = (int -> tactic) -> (int -> tactic)
oheimb@4649
  1332
  setWrapper, setSWrapper, compWrapper and compSWrapper are replaced by
oheimb@4824
  1333
  addWrapper, addSWrapper: claset * (string * wrapper) -> claset
oheimb@4824
  1334
  delWrapper, delSWrapper: claset *  string            -> claset
oheimb@4649
  1335
  getWrapper is renamed to appWrappers, getSWrapper to appSWrappers;
oheimb@4649
  1336
wenzelm@5705
  1337
* Classical reasoner: addbefore/addSbefore now have APPEND/ORELSE
wenzelm@5726
  1338
semantics; addbefore now affects only the unsafe part of step_tac
wenzelm@5726
  1339
etc.; this affects addss/auto_tac/force_tac, so EXISTING PROOFS MAY
wenzelm@5726
  1340
FAIL, but proofs should be fixable easily, e.g. by replacing Auto_tac
wenzelm@5726
  1341
by Force_tac;
oheimb@5524
  1342
wenzelm@5726
  1343
* Classical reasoner: setwrapper to setWrapper and compwrapper to
wenzelm@5726
  1344
compWrapper; added safe wrapper (and access functions for it);
oheimb@5524
  1345
wenzelm@5127
  1346
* HOL/split_all_tac is now much faster and fails if there is nothing
wenzelm@5726
  1347
to split.  Some EXISTING PROOFS MAY REQUIRE ADAPTION because the order
wenzelm@5726
  1348
and the names of the automatically generated variables have changed.
wenzelm@5726
  1349
split_all_tac has moved within claset() from unsafe wrappers to safe
wenzelm@5726
  1350
wrappers, which means that !!-bound variables are split much more
wenzelm@5726
  1351
aggressively, and safe_tac and clarify_tac now split such variables.
wenzelm@5726
  1352
If this splitting is not appropriate, use delSWrapper "split_all_tac".
wenzelm@5726
  1353
Note: the same holds for record_split_tac, which does the job of
wenzelm@5726
  1354
split_all_tac for record fields.
wenzelm@5127
  1355
wenzelm@5726
  1356
* HOL/Simplifier: Rewrite rules for case distinctions can now be added
wenzelm@5726
  1357
permanently to the default simpset using Addsplits just like
wenzelm@5726
  1358
Addsimps. They can be removed via Delsplits just like
wenzelm@5726
  1359
Delsimps. Lower-case versions are also available.
wenzelm@5127
  1360
wenzelm@5726
  1361
* HOL/Simplifier: The rule split_if is now part of the default
wenzelm@5726
  1362
simpset. This means that the simplifier will eliminate all occurrences
wenzelm@5726
  1363
of if-then-else in the conclusion of a goal. To prevent this, you can
wenzelm@5726
  1364
either remove split_if completely from the default simpset by
wenzelm@5726
  1365
`Delsplits [split_if]' or remove it in a specific call of the
wenzelm@5726
  1366
simplifier using `... delsplits [split_if]'.  You can also add/delete
wenzelm@5726
  1367
other case splitting rules to/from the default simpset: every datatype
wenzelm@5726
  1368
generates suitable rules `split_t_case' and `split_t_case_asm' (where
wenzelm@5726
  1369
t is the name of the datatype).
wenzelm@5127
  1370
wenzelm@5726
  1371
* Classical reasoner / Simplifier combination: new force_tac (and
wenzelm@5127
  1372
derivatives Force_tac, force) combines rewriting and classical
wenzelm@5127
  1373
reasoning (and whatever other tools) similarly to auto_tac, but is
wenzelm@5726
  1374
aimed to solve the given subgoal completely.
wenzelm@5127

wenzelm@5127
  1377
*** General ***
wenzelm@5127
  1378
wenzelm@5217
  1379
* new top-level commands `Goal' and `Goalw' that improve upon `goal'
wenzelm@5127
  1380
and `goalw': the theory is no longer needed as an explicit argument -
wenzelm@5127
  1381
the current theory context is used; assumptions are no longer returned
wenzelm@5127
  1382
at the ML-level unless one of them starts with ==> or !!; it is
wenzelm@5217
  1383
recommended to convert to these new commands using isatool fixgoal
wenzelm@5217
  1384
(backup your sources first!);
wenzelm@4842
  1385
wenzelm@5217
  1386
* new top-level commands 'thm' and 'thms' for retrieving theorems from
wenzelm@5207

paulson@4661
  1413
wenzelm@5710
  1414
* there is now a tutorial on Isabelle/HOL (do 'isatool doc tutorial');
nipkow@5709
  1415
wenzelm@5217
  1416
* HOL/inductive package reorganized and improved: now supports mutual
paulson@5267
  1417
definitions such as
wenzelm@5217
  1418
wenzelm@5217
  1419
  inductive EVEN ODD

wenzelm@5217
  1424
wenzelm@5217
  1425
new theorem list "elims" contains an elimination rule for each of the
wenzelm@5217
  1426
recursive sets; inductive definitions now handle disjunctive premises
wenzelm@5217
  1427
correctly (also ZF);
berghofe@5214
  1428
wenzelm@5217
  1429
INCOMPATIBILITIES: requires Inductive as an ancestor; component
wenzelm@5217
  1430
"mutual_induct" no longer exists - the induction rule is always
wenzelm@5217
  1431
contained in "induct";
wenzelm@5217
  1432
wenzelm@5217
  1433
wenzelm@5217
  1434
* HOL/datatype package re-implemented and greatly improved: now
paulson@5267
  1435
supports mutually recursive datatypes such as
wenzelm@5217
  1436
wenzelm@5217
  1437
  datatype
wenzelm@5217
  1438
    'a aexp = IF_THEN_ELSE ('a bexp) ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
  1439
            | SUM ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
  1440
            | DIFF ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
  1441
            | NUM 'a
wenzelm@5217
  1442
  and
wenzelm@5217
  1443
    'a bexp = LESS ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
  1444
            | AND ('a bexp) ('a bexp)
wenzelm@5217
  1445
            | OR ('a bexp) ('a bexp)
wenzelm@5217
  1446
paulson@5267
  1447
as well as indirectly recursive datatypes such as
berghofe@5214
  1448
wenzelm@5217
  1449
  datatype
wenzelm@5217
  1450
    ('a, 'b) term = Var 'a

berghofe@5214
  1452
wenzelm@5217
  1453
The new tactic  mutual_induct_tac [<var_1>, ..., <var_n>] i  performs
wenzelm@5217
  1454
induction on mutually / indirectly recursive datatypes.
wenzelm@5217
  1455
wenzelm@5217
  1456
Primrec equations are now stored in theory and can be accessed via
wenzelm@5217
  1457
<function_name>.simps.
wenzelm@5217
  1458
wenzelm@5217
  1459
INCOMPATIBILITIES:
berghofe@5214
  1460
wenzelm@5217
  1461
  - Theories using datatypes must now have theory Datatype as an
wenzelm@5217
  1462
    ancestor.
wenzelm@5217
  1463
  - The specific <typename>.induct_tac no longer exists - use the
wenzelm@5217
  1464
    generic induct_tac instead.
berghofe@5226
  1465
  - natE has been renamed to nat.exhaust - use exhaust_tac
wenzelm@5217
  1466
    instead of res_inst_tac ... natE. Note that the variable
berghofe@5226
  1467
    names in nat.exhaust differ from the names in natE, this
wenzelm@5217
  1468
    may cause some "fragile" proofs to fail.
wenzelm@5217
  1469
  - The theorems split_<typename>_case and split_<typename>_case_asm
wenzelm@5217
  1470
    have been renamed to <typename>.split and <typename>.split_asm.
wenzelm@5217
  1471
  - Since default sorts of type variables are now handled correctly,
wenzelm@5217
  1472
    some datatype definitions may have to be annotated with explicit
wenzelm@5217
  1473
    sort constraints.
wenzelm@5217
  1474
  - Primrec definitions no longer require function name and type
wenzelm@5217
  1475
    of recursive argument.
berghofe@5214
  1476
wenzelm@5217
  1477
Consider using isatool fixdatatype to adapt your theories and proof
wenzelm@5217
  1478
scripts to the new package (backup your sources first!).
wenzelm@5217
  1479
wenzelm@5217
  1480
wenzelm@5726
  1481
* HOL/record package: considerably improved implementation; now
wenzelm@5726
  1482
includes concrete syntax for record types, terms, updates; theorems
wenzelm@5726
  1483
for surjective pairing and splitting !!-bound record variables; proof
wenzelm@5726
  1484
support is as follows:
wenzelm@5726
  1485
wenzelm@5726
  1486
  1) standard conversions (selectors or updates applied to record
wenzelm@5726
  1487
constructor terms) are part of the standard simpset;
wenzelm@5726
  1488
wenzelm@5726
  1489
  2) inject equations of the form ((x, y) = (x', y')) == x=x' & y=y' are
wenzelm@5726
  1490
made part of standard simpset and claset via addIffs;
wenzelm@5726
  1491
wenzelm@5726
  1492
  3) a tactic for record field splitting (record_split_tac) is part of
wenzelm@5726
  1493
the standard claset (addSWrapper);
wenzelm@5726
  1494
wenzelm@5726
  1495
To get a better idea about these rules you may retrieve them via
wenzelm@5726
  1496
something like 'thms "foo.simps"' or 'thms "foo.iffs"', where "foo" is
wenzelm@5726
  1497
the name of your record type.
wenzelm@5726
  1498
wenzelm@5726
  1499
The split tactic 3) conceptually simplifies by the following rule:
wenzelm@5726
  1500
wenzelm@5726
  1501
  "(!!x. PROP ?P x) == (!!a b. PROP ?P (a, b))"
wenzelm@5726
  1502
wenzelm@5726
  1503
Thus any record variable that is bound by meta-all will automatically
wenzelm@5726
  1504
blow up into some record constructor term, consequently the
wenzelm@5726
  1505
simplifications of 1), 2) apply.  Thus force_tac, auto_tac etc. shall
wenzelm@5726
  1506
solve record problems automatically.
wenzelm@5726
  1507
berghofe@5214
  1508
wenzelm@5125
  1509
* reorganized the main HOL image: HOL/Integ and String loaded by
wenzelm@5125
  1510
default; theory Main includes everything;
wenzelm@5125
  1511
paulson@5650
  1512
* automatic simplification of integer sums and comparisons, using cancellation;
paulson@5650
  1513
oheimb@5526
  1514
* added option_map_eq_Some and not_Some_eq to the default simpset and claset;
wenzelm@5127
  1515
wenzelm@5127
  1516
* added disj_not1 = "(~P | Q) = (P --> Q)" to the default simpset;
wenzelm@5127
  1517
wenzelm@5127
  1518
* many new identities for unions, intersections, set difference, etc.;
wenzelm@5127
  1519
wenzelm@5127
  1520
* expand_if, expand_split, expand_sum_case and expand_nat_case are now
wenzelm@5127
  1521
called split_if, split_split, split_sum_case and split_nat_case (to go
wenzelm@5127
  1522
with add/delsplits);
wenzelm@5125
  1523
wenzelm@5127
  1524
* HOL/Prod introduces simplification procedure unit_eq_proc rewriting
wenzelm@5127
  1525
(?x::unit) = (); this is made part of the default simpset, which COULD
wenzelm@5127
  1526
MAKE EXISTING PROOFS FAIL under rare circumstances (consider
wenzelm@5207
  1527
'Delsimprocs [unit_eq_proc];' as last resort); also note that
wenzelm@5207
  1528
unit_abs_eta_conv is added in order to counter the effect of
wenzelm@5207
  1529
unit_eq_proc on (%u::unit. f u), replacing it by f rather than by
wenzelm@5207
  1530
%u.f();
wenzelm@5125
  1531
wenzelm@5217
  1532
* HOL/Fun INCOMPATIBILITY: `inj_onto' is now called `inj_on' (which
wenzelm@5217
  1533
makes more sense);
berghofe@5109
  1534
paulson@5475
  1535
* HOL/Set INCOMPATIBILITY: rule `equals0D' is now a well-formed destruct rule;
paulson@5475
  1536
  It and 'sym RS equals0D' are now in the default  claset, giving automatic
paulson@5475
  1537
  disjointness reasoning but breaking a few old proofs.
paulson@5267
  1538
wenzelm@5217
  1539
* HOL/Relation INCOMPATIBILITY: renamed the relational operator r^-1
wenzelm@5217
  1540
to 'converse' from 'inverse' (for compatibility with ZF and some
wenzelm@5217
  1541
literature);
wenzelm@5085
  1542
wenzelm@5127
  1543
* HOL/recdef can now declare non-recursive functions, with {} supplied as
wenzelm@5127
  1544
the well-founded relation;
oheimb@4838
  1545
paulson@5490
  1546
* HOL/Set INCOMPATIBILITY: the complement of set A is now written -A instead of
paulson@5490
  1547
    Compl A.  The "Compl" syntax remains available as input syntax for this
paulson@5490
  1548
    release ONLY.
paulson@5490
  1549
wenzelm@5127
  1550
* HOL/Update: new theory of function updates:
wenzelm@5127
  1551
    f(a:=b) == %x. if x=a then b else f x
wenzelm@5127
  1552
may also be iterated as in f(a:=b,c:=d,...);
nipkow@5077
  1553
wenzelm@5127
  1554
* HOL/Vimage: new theory for inverse image of a function, syntax f-``B;
paulson@4899
  1555
nipkow@5282
  1556
* HOL/List:
nipkow@5282
  1557
  - new function list_update written xs[i:=v] that updates the i-th
nipkow@5282
  1558
    list position. May also be iterated as in xs[i:=a,j:=b,...].
nipkow@5428
  1559
  - new function `upt' written [i..j(] which generates the list
nipkow@5428
  1560
    [i,i+1,...,j-1], i.e. the upper bound is excluded. To include the upper
nipkow@5428
  1561
    bound write [i..j], which is a shorthand for [i..j+1(].
nipkow@5282
  1562
  - new lexicographic orderings and corresponding wellfoundedness theorems.
paulson@4779
  1563
wenzelm@5127
  1564
* HOL/Arith:
wenzelm@5127
  1565
  - removed 'pred' (predecessor) function;
wenzelm@5127
  1566
  - generalized some theorems about n-1;
wenzelm@5127
  1567
  - many new laws about "div" and "mod";
wenzelm@5127
  1568
  - new laws about greatest common divisors (see theory ex/Primes);
oheimb@4766
  1569
wenzelm@5127
  1570
* HOL/Relation: renamed the relational operator r^-1 "converse"
wenzelm@4842
  1571
instead of "inverse";
wenzelm@4711
  1572
nipkow@5651
  1573
* HOL/Induct/Multiset: a theory of multisets, including the wellfoundedness
nipkow@5651
  1574
  of the multiset ordering;
nipkow@5651
  1575
wenzelm@5127
  1576

nipkow@5651
  1577
  (not included by default);
nipkow@4835

  1579
* directory HOL/UNITY: Chandy and Misra's UNITY formalism;
wenzelm@4711
  1580
nipkow@5651
  1581
* directory HOL/Hoare: a new version of Hoare logic which permits many-sorted
nipkow@5651
  1582
  programs, i.e. different program variables may have different types.
nipkow@5651
  1583
paulson@5142
  1584
* calling (stac rew i) now fails if "rew" has no effect on the goal
paulson@5142
  1585
  [previously, this check worked only if the rewrite rule was unconditional]
paulson@5308
  1586
  Now rew can involve either definitions or equalities (either == or =).

  1594
* ZF INCOMPATIBILITY: rule `equals0D' is now a well-formed destruct rule;

wenzelm@5207
  1616
wenzelm@5008

* improved the theory data mechanism to support encapsulation (data
wenzelm@5008
  1618
kind name replaced by private Object.kind, acting as authorization
wenzelm@5373

  1620
print_data function becomes basically useless;
wenzelm@5002
  1621
wenzelm@5251
  1622
* removed global_names compatibility flag -- all theory declarations

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES (see below for more details) ***
wenzelm@4410
  1649
wenzelm@4410
  1650
* changed lexical syntax of terms / types: dots made part of long
wenzelm@4410
  1651
identifiers, e.g. "%x.x" no longer possible, should be "%x. x";
wenzelm@4410
  1652
wenzelm@4410
  1653
* simpset (and claset) reference variable replaced by functions
wenzelm@4410
  1654
simpset / simpset_ref;
wenzelm@4410
  1655
wenzelm@4410
  1656
* no longer supports theory aliases (via merge) and non-trivial
wenzelm@4410
  1657
implicit merge of thms' signatures;
wenzelm@4410
  1658
wenzelm@4410
  1659
* most internal names of constants changed due to qualified names;
wenzelm@4410

wenzelm@4174
  1666
* hierachically structured name spaces (for consts, types, axms, thms
wenzelm@3943
  1667
etc.); new lexical class 'longid' (e.g. Foo.bar.x) may render much of
wenzelm@4108

to be adapted to cope with fully qualified names; in case of severe
wenzelm@4174
  1673
backward campatibility problems try setting 'global_names' at compile
wenzelm@4174
  1674
time to have enrything declared within a flat name space; one may also
wenzelm@4174
  1675
fine tune name declarations in theories via the 'global' and 'local'
wenzelm@4174
  1676
section;
wenzelm@4108
  1677
wenzelm@4108
  1678
* reimplemented the implicit simpset and claset using the new anytype
wenzelm@4108
  1679
data filed in signatures; references simpset:simpset ref etc. are
wenzelm@4108
  1680
replaced by functions simpset:unit->simpset and
wenzelm@4108
  1681
simpset_ref:unit->simpset ref; COMPATIBILITY: use isatool fixclasimp
wenzelm@4108
  1682
to patch your ML files accordingly;
paulson@3856
  1683
wenzelm@3857
  1684
* HTML output now includes theory graph data for display with Java
wenzelm@3857
  1685
applet or isatool browser; data generated automatically via isatool
wenzelm@3901
  1686
usedir (see -i option, ISABELLE_USEDIR_OPTIONS);
wenzelm@3857
  1687
paulson@3856
  1688
* defs may now be conditional; improved rewrite_goals_tac to handle
paulson@3856
  1689
conditional equations;
paulson@3856
  1690
wenzelm@4174
  1691
* defs now admits additional type arguments, using TYPE('a) syntax;
wenzelm@4174
  1692
wenzelm@3901
  1693
* theory aliases via merge (e.g. M=A+B+C) no longer supported, always
wenzelm@3901
  1694
creates a new theory node; implicit merge of thms' signatures is
wenzelm@4112
  1695
restricted to 'trivial' ones; COMPATIBILITY: one may have to use
wenzelm@3901
  1696
transfer:theory->thm->thm in (rare) cases;
wenzelm@3901
  1697
wenzelm@3968
  1698
* improved handling of draft signatures / theories; draft thms (and
wenzelm@3968
  1699
ctyps, cterms) are automatically promoted to real ones;
wenzelm@3968
  1700
wenzelm@3901
  1701
* slightly changed interfaces for oracles: admit many per theory, named
wenzelm@3901
  1702
(e.g. oracle foo = mlfun), additional name argument for invoke_oracle;
wenzelm@3901
  1703
wenzelm@3901
  1704
* print_goals: optional output of const types (set show_consts and
wenzelm@3901
  1705
show_types);
wenzelm@3851
  1706
wenzelm@4388
  1707
* improved output of warnings (###) and errors (***);
wenzelm@3697
  1708
paulson@4178
  1709
* subgoal_tac displays a warning if the new subgoal has type variables;
paulson@4178
  1710
paulson@3715
  1711
* removed old README and Makefiles;
wenzelm@3697
  1712
paulson@3856
  1713
* replaced print_goals_ref hook by print_current_goals_fn and result_error_fn;
wenzelm@3670
  1714
paulson@3715
  1715
* removed obsolete init_pps and init_database;
paulson@3715
  1716
paulson@3715
  1717
* deleted the obsolete tactical STATE, which was declared by
paulson@3715
  1718
    fun STATE tacfun st = tacfun st st;
paulson@3715
  1719
wenzelm@4388
  1720
* cd and use now support path variables, e.g. $ISABELLE_HOME, or ~
wenzelm@4388
  1721
(which abbreviates $HOME);
wenzelm@4269
  1722
wenzelm@4269
  1723
* changed Pure/Sequence interface (see Pure/seq.ML); COMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@4269
  1724
use isatool fixseq to adapt your ML programs (this works for fully
wenzelm@4269
  1725
qualified references to the Sequence structure only!);
wenzelm@4269
  1726
wenzelm@4381
  1727
* use_thy no longer requires writable current directory; it always
wenzelm@4381
  1728
reloads .ML *and* .thy file, if either one is out of date;

*** Classical Reasoner ***
paulson@3715
  1732
wenzelm@3744
  1733
* Clarify_tac, clarify_tac, clarify_step_tac, Clarify_step_tac: new
wenzelm@3744
  1734
tactics that use classical reasoning to simplify a subgoal without
wenzelm@3744
  1735
splitting it into several subgoals;
paulson@3715
  1736
paulson@3719
  1737
* Safe_tac: like safe_tac but uses the default claset;
paulson@3719
  1738
paulson@3715
  1739
paulson@3715
  1740
*** Simplifier ***
paulson@3715
  1741
paulson@3715
  1742
* added simplification meta rules:
paulson@3715
  1743
    (asm_)(full_)simplify: simpset -> thm -> thm;
paulson@3715
  1744
paulson@3715
  1745
* simplifier.ML no longer part of Pure -- has to be loaded by object
paulson@3715
  1746
logics (again);
paulson@3715
  1747
paulson@3715
  1748
* added prems argument to simplification procedures;
paulson@3715
  1749
paulson@4325
  1750
* HOL, FOL, ZF: added infix function `addsplits':
paulson@4325
  1751
  instead of `<simpset> setloop (split_tac <thms>)'
paulson@4325
  1752
  you can simply write `<simpset> addsplits <thms>'
paulson@4325
  1753
paulson@3715
  1754
paulson@3715
  1755
*** Syntax ***
paulson@3715
  1756
wenzelm@4174
  1757
* TYPE('a) syntax for type reflection terms;
wenzelm@4174
  1758
wenzelm@3985
  1759
* no longer handles consts with name "" -- declare as 'syntax' instead;
paulson@3856
  1760
paulson@3856
  1761
* pretty printer: changed order of mixfix annotation preference (again!);
wenzelm@3846
  1762
paulson@3715
  1763
* Pure: fixed idt/idts vs. pttrn/pttrns syntactic categories;
paulson@3715

paulson@3715
  1765
paulson@3715
  1766
*** HOL ***
paulson@3715
  1767
wenzelm@5726
  1768
* HOL: there is a new splitter `split_asm_tac' that can be used e.g.
oheimb@4189
  1769
  with `addloop' of the simplifier to faciliate case splitting in premises.
oheimb@4189
  1770
nipkow@4035

* HOL/TLA: Stephan Merz's formalization of Lamport's Temporal Logic of Actions;
wenzelm@3985
  1772
wenzelm@3985
  1773
* HOL/Auth: new protocol proofs including some for the Internet
nipkow@4035
  1774
  protocol TLS;
wenzelm@3985
  1775
wenzelm@4125
  1776
* HOL/Map: new theory of `maps' a la VDM;
nipkow@3982
  1777
wenzelm@4335
  1778
* HOL/simplifier: simplification procedures nat_cancel_sums for
wenzelm@4335
  1779
cancelling out common nat summands from =, <, <= (in)equalities, or
wenzelm@4335
  1780
differences; simplification procedures nat_cancel_factor for
wenzelm@4335
  1781
cancelling common factor from =, <, <= (in)equalities over natural
wenzelm@4373
  1782
sums; nat_cancel contains both kinds of procedures, it is installed by
wenzelm@4373
  1783
default in Arith.thy -- this COULD MAKE EXISTING PROOFS FAIL;
wenzelm@4335
  1784
nipkow@3580
  1785
* HOL/simplifier: terms of the form
paulson@4325
  1786
  `? x. P1(x) & ... & Pn(x) & x=t & Q1(x) & ... Qn(x)'  (or t=x)
nipkow@3580
  1787
  are rewritten to
nipkow@4035
  1788
  `P1(t) & ... & Pn(t) & Q1(t) & ... Qn(t)',
nipkow@4035
  1789
  and those of the form
paulson@4325
  1790
  `! x. P1(x) & ... & Pn(x) & x=t & Q1(x) & ... Qn(x) --> R(x)'  (or t=x)
nipkow@4035
  1791
  are rewritten to
nipkow@4035
  1792
  `P1(t) & ... & Pn(t) & Q1(t) & ... Qn(t) --> R(t)',
nipkow@4035
  1793
nipkow@4035
  1794
* HOL/datatype
nipkow@4035
  1795
  Each datatype `t' now comes with a theorem `split_t_case' of the form
nipkow@3580
  1796
nipkow@4035
  1797
  P(t_case f1 ... fn x) =
nipkow@4035
  1798

nipkow@4035
  1801
     )
nipkow@4035
  1802
oheimb@4930
  1803
  and a theorem `split_t_case_asm' of the form
oheimb@4189
  1804
oheimb@4189
  1805
  P(t_case f1 ... fn x) =
oheimb@4189
  1806
    ~( (? y1 ... ym1. x = C1 y1 ... ym1 & ~P(f1 y1 ... ym1)) |

oheimb@4189
  1809
     )
oheimb@4930
  1810
  which can be added to a simpset via `addsplits'. The existing theorems
oheimb@4930
  1811
  expand_list_case and expand_option_case have been renamed to
oheimb@4930
  1812
  split_list_case and split_option_case.
oheimb@4189
  1813
nipkow@4361
  1814
* HOL/Arithmetic:
nipkow@4361
  1815
  - `pred n' is automatically converted to `n-1'.
nipkow@4361
  1816
    Users are strongly encouraged not to use `pred' any longer,
nipkow@4361
  1817
    because it will disappear altogether at some point.
nipkow@4361
  1818
  - Users are strongly encouraged to write "0 < n" rather than
nipkow@4361
  1819
    "n ~= 0". Theorems and proof tools have been modified towards this
nipkow@4361
  1820
    `standard'.
nipkow@4357
  1821
nipkow@4502
  1822
* HOL/Lists:
nipkow@4502
  1823
  the function "set_of_list" has been renamed "set" (and its theorems too);
nipkow@4502
  1824
  the function "nth" now takes its arguments in the reverse order and
nipkow@4502
  1825
  has acquired the infix notation "!" as in "xs!n".
paulson@3570
  1826
paulson@4154
  1827
* HOL/Set: UNIV is now a constant and is no longer translated to Compl{};
paulson@4154
  1828
paulson@4154
  1829
* HOL/Set: The operator (UN x.B x) now abbreviates (UN x:UNIV. B x) and its
paulson@4154
  1830
  specialist theorems (like UN1_I) are gone.  Similarly for (INT x.B x);
paulson@4154
  1831
wenzelm@4575
  1832
* HOL/record: extensible records with schematic structural subtyping
wenzelm@4575
  1833
(single inheritance); EXPERIMENTAL version demonstrating the encoding,
wenzelm@4575
  1834
still lacks various theorems and concrete record syntax;

paulson@3715
  1837
*** HOLCF ***
wenzelm@3535
  1838
wenzelm@4125
  1839
* removed "axioms" and "generated by" sections;
wenzelm@4125
  1840
oheimb@4123
  1841
* replaced "ops" section by extended "consts" section, which is capable of
wenzelm@4125
  1842
  handling the continuous function space "->" directly;
wenzelm@4125
  1843
wenzelm@4125
  1844
* domain package:
wenzelm@4125
  1845
  . proves theorems immediately and stores them in the theory,
wenzelm@4125
  1846
  . creates hierachical name space,
wenzelm@4125
  1847
  . now uses normal mixfix annotations (instead of cinfix...),
wenzelm@4125
  1848
  . minor changes to some names and values (for consistency),
wenzelm@4125
  1849
  . e.g. cases -> casedist, dists_eq -> dist_eqs, [take_lemma] -> take_lemmas,
wenzelm@4125
  1850
  . separator between mutual domain defs: changed "," to "and",
wenzelm@4125
  1851
  . improved handling of sort constraints;  now they have to
wenzelm@4125
  1852
    appear on the left-hand side of the equations only;
oheimb@4123
  1853
oheimb@4123
  1854
* fixed LAM <x,y,zs>.b syntax;
wenzelm@3567
  1855
wenzelm@3744
  1856
* added extended adm_tac to simplifier in HOLCF -- can now discharge
wenzelm@3744
  1857
adm (%x. P (t x)), where P is chainfinite and t continuous;

paulson@3719
  1860
*** FOL and ZF ***
paulson@3719
  1861
wenzelm@5726
  1862
* FOL: there is a new splitter `split_asm_tac' that can be used e.g.
oheimb@4189
  1863
  with `addloop' of the simplifier to faciliate case splitting in premises.
oheimb@4189
  1864
wenzelm@3744
  1865
* qed_spec_mp, qed_goal_spec_mp, qed_goalw_spec_mp are available, as

  1866
in HOL, they strip ALL and --> from proved theorems;

paulson@3002
  1873
*** General Changes ***
paulson@3002
  1874
paulson@3002
  1875
* new utilities to build / run / maintain Isabelle etc. (in parts
paulson@3002
  1876
still somewhat experimental); old Makefiles etc. still functional;
wenzelm@2971
  1877
wenzelm@3205
  1878
* new 'Isabelle System Manual';
wenzelm@3205
  1879
wenzelm@2825
  1880
* INSTALL text, together with ./configure and ./build scripts;
wenzelm@2773
  1881
wenzelm@3006
  1882
* reimplemented type inference for greater efficiency, better error
wenzelm@3006
  1883
messages and clean internal interface;
paulson@3002
  1884
paulson@3002
  1885
* prlim command for dealing with lots of subgoals (an easier way of
paulson@3002
  1886
setting goals_limit);
paulson@3002
  1887
wenzelm@3006
  1888
wenzelm@3006
  1889
*** Syntax ***
paulson@3002
  1890
wenzelm@3116
  1891
* supports alternative (named) syntax tables (parser and pretty
wenzelm@3116
  1892
printer); internal interface is provided by add_modesyntax(_i);
wenzelm@3116
  1893
paulson@3002
  1894
* Pure, FOL, ZF, HOL, HOLCF now support symbolic input and output; to
paulson@3002
  1895
be used in conjunction with the Isabelle symbol font; uses the
paulson@3002
  1896
"symbols" syntax table;
paulson@3002
  1897
wenzelm@2705
  1898
* added token_translation interface (may translate name tokens in
wenzelm@2756
  1899
arbitrary ways, dependent on their type (free, bound, tfree, ...) and
wenzelm@3116
  1900
the current print_mode); IMPORTANT: user print translation functions
wenzelm@3116
  1901
are responsible for marking newly introduced bounds
wenzelm@3116
  1902
(Syntax.mark_boundT);
wenzelm@2705
  1903
wenzelm@2730
  1904
* token translations for modes "xterm" and "xterm_color" that display
wenzelm@3006
  1905
names in bold, underline etc. or colors (which requires a color
wenzelm@3006
  1906
version of xterm);
wenzelm@2730
  1907
paulson@3002
  1908
* infixes may now be declared with names independent of their syntax;
paulson@3002
  1909
paulson@3002
  1910
* added typed_print_translation (like print_translation, but may
paulson@3002
  1911
access type of constant);

*** Classical Reasoner ***
paulson@3002
  1915
paulson@3002
  1916
Blast_tac: a new tactic!  It is often more powerful than fast_tac, but has
paulson@3002
  1917
some limitations.  Blast_tac...
paulson@3002
  1918
  + ignores addss, addbefore, addafter; this restriction is intrinsic
paulson@3002
  1919
  + ignores elimination rules that don't have the correct format
wenzelm@5726
  1920
        (the conclusion MUST be a formula variable)
paulson@3002
  1921
  + ignores types, which can make HOL proofs fail
paulson@3002
  1922
  + rules must not require higher-order unification, e.g. apply_type in ZF
paulson@3002
  1923
    [message "Function Var's argument not a bound variable" relates to this]
paulson@3002
  1924
  + its proof strategy is more general but can actually be slower
paulson@3002
  1925
wenzelm@3107
  1926
* substitution with equality assumptions no longer permutes other
wenzelm@3107
  1927
assumptions;
paulson@3002
  1928
paulson@3002
  1929
* minor changes in semantics of addafter (now called addaltern); renamed
paulson@3002
  1930
setwrapper to setWrapper and compwrapper to compWrapper; added safe wrapper
wenzelm@3107
  1931
(and access functions for it);
paulson@3002
  1932
wenzelm@5726
  1933
* improved combination of classical reasoner and simplifier:
oheimb@3317
  1934
  + functions for handling clasimpsets
oheimb@3317
  1935
  + improvement of addss: now the simplifier is called _after_ the
oheimb@3317
  1936
    safe steps.
oheimb@3317
  1937
  + safe variant of addss called addSss: uses safe simplifications
wenzelm@5726
  1938
    _during_ the safe steps. It is more complete as it allows multiple
oheimb@3317
  1939
    instantiations of unknowns (e.g. with slow_tac).
wenzelm@3006

paulson@3002
  1941
*** Simplifier ***
paulson@3002
  1942
wenzelm@3006
  1943
* added interface for simplification procedures (functions that
wenzelm@3006
  1944
produce *proven* rewrite rules on the fly, depending on current
wenzelm@3006
  1945
redex);
wenzelm@3006
  1946
wenzelm@3006
  1947
* ordering on terms as parameter (used for ordered rewriting);
wenzelm@3006
  1948
wenzelm@3107
  1949
* new functions delcongs, deleqcongs, and Delcongs. richer rep_ss;
paulson@3002
  1950
paulson@3002
  1951
* the solver is now split into a safe and an unsafe part.
paulson@3002
  1952
This should be invisible for the normal user, except that the
paulson@3002
  1953
functions setsolver and addsolver have been renamed to setSolver and
wenzelm@3107
  1954
addSolver; added safe_asm_full_simp_tac;

paulson@3002
  1957
*** HOL ***
paulson@3002
  1958
nipkow@3042
  1959

wenzelm@3107
  1960
also for type `nat';
nipkow@3042

* The previous version of HOL renamed to Old_HOL;
paulson@2557
  2090
wenzelm@5726
  2091

  2107
wenzelm@5726
  2108
* a new logic, CHOL, the same as HOL, but with a curried syntax
wenzelm@5726
  2109
for functions.  Application looks like f a b instead of f(a,b).  Also pairs
paulson@2557
  2110
look like (a,b) instead of <a,b>;

  2131
freely;
paulson@2557
  2132
paulson@2557
  2133

  2134
commands including qed, qed_goal and bind_thm store theorems in the database.
paulson@2557
  2135
paulson@2557
  2136
* Simple database queries: return a named theorem (get_thm) or all theorems of
paulson@2557
  2137
a given theory (thms_of), or find out what theory a theorem was proved in
paulson@2557
  2138
(theory_of_thm);
paulson@2557
  2139
paulson@2557
  2140
* Bugs fixed in the inductive definition and datatype packages;
paulson@2557
  2141
paulson@2557
  2142
* The classical reasoner provides deepen_tac and depth_tac, making FOL_dup_cs
paulson@2557
  2143
and HOL_dup_cs obsolete;
paulson@2557
  2144
paulson@2557
  2145
