visible.

wenzelm@10161
    16
  * Isabelle/Isar improvements (Markus Wenzel)
wenzelm@10161
    17
      o Support of tactic-emulation scripts for easy porting of legacy ML
wenzelm@10161
    18
        scripts (see also the HOL/Lambda example).
wenzelm@10161
    19
      o Better support for scalable verification tasks (manage large
wenzelm@10161
    20
        contexts in induction, generalized existence reasoning etc.)
wenzelm@10161
    21
      o Hindley-Milner polymorphism for proof texts.
wenzelm@10161
    22
      o More robust document preparation, better LaTeX output due to
wenzelm@10161
    23
        fake math-mode.
wenzelm@10161
    24
      o Extended "Isabelle/Isar Reference Manual"

    Formalization of a fragment of Java, together with a corresponding
wenzelm@10161
    30
    virtual machine and a specification of its bytecode verifier and a
