*** General ***
wenzelm@14655
     8
nipkow@15130
     9
* Theory headers: the new header syntax for Isar theories is
nipkow@15130
    10
nipkow@15130
    11
  theory <name>
wenzelm@16234
    12
  imports <theory1> ... <theoryN>
wenzelm@16234
    13
  uses <file1> ... <fileM>
nipkow@15130
    14
  begin
nipkow@15130
    15
wenzelm@16234
    16
where the 'uses' part is optional.  The previous syntax
wenzelm@16234
    17
wenzelm@16234
    18
  theory <name> = <theory1> + ... + <theoryN>:
wenzelm@16234
    19
wenzelm@16717
    20
will disappear in the next release.  Use isatool fixheaders to convert
wenzelm@16717
    21
existing theory files.  Note that there is no change in ancient
wenzelm@17371
    22
non-Isar theories now, but these will disappear soon.
nipkow@15130
    23
berghofe@15475
    24
* Theory loader: parent theories can now also be referred to via
wenzelm@16234
    25
relative and absolute paths.
wenzelm@16234
    26
wenzelm@16234
    27
* Improved version of thms_containing searches for a list of criteria
wenzelm@16234
    28
instead of a list of constants. Known criteria are: intro, elim, dest,
wenzelm@16234
    29
name:string, simp:term, and any term. Criteria can be preceded by '-'
wenzelm@16234
    30
to select theorems that do not match. Intro, elim, dest select
wenzelm@16234
    31
theorems that match the current goal, name:s selects theorems whose
wenzelm@16234
    32
fully qualified name contain s, and simp:term selects all
wenzelm@16234
    33
simplification rules whose lhs match term.  Any other term is
wenzelm@16234
    34
interpreted as pattern and selects all theorems matching the
wenzelm@16234
    35
pattern. Available in ProofGeneral under 'ProofGeneral -> Find
wenzelm@16234
    36
Theorems' or C-c C-f.  Example:
wenzelm@16234
    37
wenzelm@17275
    38
  C-c C-f (100) "(_::nat) + _ + _" intro -name: "HOL."
wenzelm@16234
    39
wenzelm@16234
    40
prints the last 100 theorems matching the pattern "(_::nat) + _ + _",
wenzelm@16234
    41
matching the current goal as introduction rule and not having "HOL."
wenzelm@16234
    42
in their name (i.e. not being defined in theory HOL).
wenzelm@16013
    43
wenzelm@17385
    44
* Communication with Proof General is now 8bit clean, which means that
wenzelm@17385
    45
Unicode text in UTF-8 encoding may be used within theory texts (both
wenzelm@17385
    46
formal and informal parts).  See option -U of the Isabelle Proof
wenzelm@17385
    47
General interface.

*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@15703
    51
wenzelm@16234
    52
* Commands 'display_drafts' and 'print_drafts' perform simple output
wenzelm@16234
    53
of raw sources.  Only those symbols that do not require additional
wenzelm@16234
    54
LaTeX packages (depending on comments in isabellesym.sty) are
wenzelm@16234
    55
displayed properly, everything else is left verbatim.  isatool display
wenzelm@16234
    56
and isatool print are used as front ends (these are subject to the
wenzelm@16234
    57
DVI/PDF_VIEWER and PRINT_COMMAND settings, respectively).
wenzelm@16234
    58
wenzelm@17047
    59
* Command tags control specific markup of certain regions of text,
wenzelm@17047
    60
notably folding and hiding.  Predefined tags include "theory" (for
wenzelm@17047
    61
theory begin and end), "proof" for proof commands, and "ML" for
wenzelm@17047
    62
commands involving ML code; the additional tags "visible" and
wenzelm@17047
    63
"invisible" are unused by default.  Users may give explicit tag
wenzelm@17047
    64
specifications in the text, e.g. ''by %invisible (auto)''.  The
wenzelm@17047
    65
interpretation of tags is determined by the LaTeX job during document
wenzelm@17047
    66
preparation: see option -V of isatool usedir, or options -n and -t of
wenzelm@17047
    67
isatool document, or even the LaTeX macros \isakeeptag, \isafoldtag,
wenzelm@17047
    68
\isadroptag.
wenzelm@17047
    69
wenzelm@17047
    70
Several document versions may be produced at the same time via isatool
wenzelm@17047
    71
usedir (the generated index.html will link all of them).  Typical
wenzelm@17047
    72
specifications include ''-V document=theory,proof,ML'' to present
wenzelm@17047
    73
theory/proof/ML parts faithfully, ''-V outline=/proof,/ML'' to fold
wenzelm@17047
    74
proof and ML commands, and ''-V mutilated=-theory,-proof,-ML'' to omit
wenzelm@17047
    75
these parts without any formal replacement text.  The Isabelle site
wenzelm@17047
    76
default settings produce ''document'' and ''outline'' versions as
wenzelm@17047
    77
specified above.
wenzelm@16234
    78
wenzelm@15979
    79
* Several new antiquotation:
wenzelm@15979
    80
wenzelm@15979
    81
  @{term_type term} prints a term with its type annotated;
wenzelm@15979
    82
wenzelm@15979
    83
  @{typeof term} prints the type of a term;
wenzelm@15979
    84
wenzelm@16234
    85
  @{const const} is the same as @{term const}, but checks that the
wenzelm@16234
    86
  argument is a known logical constant;
wenzelm@15979
    87
wenzelm@15979
    88
  @{term_style style term} and @{thm_style style thm} print a term or
wenzelm@16234
    89
  theorem applying a "style" to it
wenzelm@16234
    90
wenzelm@17117
    91
  @{ML text}
wenzelm@17117
    92
wenzelm@16234
    93
Predefined styles are 'lhs' and 'rhs' printing the lhs/rhs of
wenzelm@16234
    94
definitions, equations, inequations etc., 'concl' printing only the
wenzelm@16234
    95
conclusion of a meta-logical statement theorem, and 'prem1' .. 'prem9'
wenzelm@16234
    96
to print the specified premise.  TermStyle.add_style provides an ML
wenzelm@16234
    97
interface for introducing further styles.  See also the "LaTeX Sugar"
wenzelm@17117
    98
document practical applications.  The ML antiquotation prints
wenzelm@17117
    99
type-checked ML expressions verbatim.
wenzelm@16234
   100
wenzelm@17259
   101
* Markup commands 'chapter', 'section', 'subsection', 'subsubsection',
wenzelm@17259
   102
and 'text' support optional locale specification '(in loc)', which
wenzelm@17269
   103
specifies the default context for interpreting antiquotations.  For
wenzelm@17269
   104
example: 'text (in lattice) {* @{thm inf_assoc}*}'.
wenzelm@17259
   105
wenzelm@17259
   106
* Option 'locale=NAME' of antiquotations specifies an alternative
wenzelm@17259
   107
context interpreting the subsequent argument.  For example: @{thm
wenzelm@17269
   108
[locale=lattice] inf_assoc}.
wenzelm@17259
   109
wenzelm@17097
   110
* Proper output of proof terms (@{prf ...} and @{full_prf ...}) within
wenzelm@17097
   111
a proof context.
wenzelm@17097
   112
wenzelm@17097
   113
* Proper output of antiquotations for theory commands involving a
wenzelm@17097
   114
proof context (such as 'locale' or 'theorem (in loc) ...').
wenzelm@17097
   115
wenzelm@17193
   116
* Delimiters of outer tokens (string etc.) now produce separate LaTeX
wenzelm@17193
   117
macros (\isachardoublequoteopen, isachardoublequoteclose etc.).
wenzelm@17193
   118
wenzelm@17193
   119
* isatool usedir: new option -C (default true) controls whether option
wenzelm@17193
   120
-D should include a copy of the original document directory; -C false
wenzelm@17193
   121
prevents unwanted effects such as copying of administrative CVS data.
wenzelm@17193
   122
wenzelm@16234
   123
wenzelm@16234
   124
*** Pure ***
wenzelm@16234
   125
wenzelm@16234
   126
* Considerably improved version of 'constdefs' command.  Now performs
wenzelm@16234
   127
automatic type-inference of declared constants; additional support for
wenzelm@16234
   128
local structure declarations (cf. locales and HOL records), see also
wenzelm@16234
   129
isar-ref manual.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY: need to observe strictly
wenzelm@16234
   130
sequential dependencies of definitions within a single 'constdefs'
wenzelm@16234
   131
section; moreover, the declared name needs to be an identifier.  If
wenzelm@16234
   132
all fails, consider to fall back on 'consts' and 'defs' separately.
wenzelm@16234
   133
wenzelm@16234
   134
* Improved indexed syntax and implicit structures.  First of all,
wenzelm@16234
   135
indexed syntax provides a notational device for subscripted
wenzelm@16234
   136
application, using the new syntax \<^bsub>term\<^esub> for arbitrary
wenzelm@16234
   137
expressions.  Secondly, in a local context with structure
wenzelm@16234
   138
declarations, number indexes \<^sub>n or the empty index (default
wenzelm@16234
   139
number 1) refer to a certain fixed variable implicitly; option
wenzelm@16234
   140
show_structs controls printing of implicit structures.  Typical
wenzelm@16234
   141
applications of these concepts involve record types and locales.
wenzelm@16234
   142
wenzelm@16234
   143
* New command 'no_syntax' removes grammar declarations (and
wenzelm@16234
   144
translations) resulting from the given syntax specification, which is
wenzelm@16234
   145
interpreted in the same manner as for the 'syntax' command.
wenzelm@16234
   146
wenzelm@16234
   147
* 'Advanced' translation functions (parse_translation etc.) may depend
wenzelm@16234
   148
on the signature of the theory context being presently used for
wenzelm@16234
   149
parsing/printing, see also isar-ref manual.
wenzelm@16234
   150
wenzelm@16856
   151
* Improved 'oracle' command provides a type-safe interface to turn an
wenzelm@16856
   152
ML expression of type theory -> T -> term into a primitive rule of
wenzelm@16856
   153
type theory -> T -> thm (i.e. the functionality of Thm.invoke_oracle
wenzelm@16856
   154
is already included here); see also FOL/ex/IffExample.thy;
wenzelm@16856
   155
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@16856
   156
wenzelm@17275
   157
* axclass: name space prefix for class "c" is now "c_class" (was "c"
wenzelm@17275
   158
before); "cI" is no longer bound, use "c.intro" instead.
wenzelm@17275
   159
INCOMPATIBILITY.  This change avoids clashes of fact bindings for
wenzelm@17275
   160
axclasses vs. locales.
wenzelm@17275
   161
wenzelm@16234
   162
* Improved internal renaming of symbolic identifiers -- attach primes
wenzelm@16234
   163
instead of base 26 numbers.
wenzelm@16234
   164
wenzelm@16234
   165
* New flag show_question_marks controls printing of leading question
wenzelm@16234
   166
marks in schematic variable names.
wenzelm@16234
   167
wenzelm@16234
   168
* In schematic variable names, *any* symbol following \<^isub> or
wenzelm@16234
   169
\<^isup> is now treated as part of the base name.  For example, the
wenzelm@16234
   170
following works without printing of awkward ".0" indexes:
wenzelm@16234
   171
wenzelm@16234
   172
  lemma "x\<^isub>1 = x\<^isub>2 ==> x\<^isub>2 = x\<^isub>1"
wenzelm@16234
   173
    by simp
wenzelm@16234
   174
wenzelm@16234
   175
* Inner syntax includes (*(*nested*) comments*).
wenzelm@16234
   176
wenzelm@16234
   177
* Pretty pinter now supports unbreakable blocks, specified in mixfix
wenzelm@16234
   178
annotations as "(00...)".
wenzelm@16234
   179
wenzelm@16234
   180
* Clear separation of logical types and nonterminals, where the latter
wenzelm@16234
   181
may only occur in 'syntax' specifications or type abbreviations.
wenzelm@16234
   182
Before that distinction was only partially implemented via type class
wenzelm@16234
   183
"logic" vs. "{}".  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY in rare cases of improper
wenzelm@16234
   184
use of 'types'/'consts' instead of 'nonterminals'/'syntax'.  Some very
wenzelm@16234
   185
exotic syntax specifications may require further adaption
wenzelm@16234
   186
(e.g. Cube/Base.thy).
wenzelm@16234
   187
wenzelm@16234
   188
* Removed obsolete type class "logic", use the top sort {} instead.
wenzelm@16234
   189
Note that non-logical types should be declared as 'nonterminals'
wenzelm@16234
   190
rather than 'types'.  INCOMPATIBILITY for new object-logic
wenzelm@16234
   191
specifications.
wenzelm@16234
   192
ballarin@17095
   193
* Attributes 'induct' and 'cases': type or set names may now be
ballarin@17095
   194
locally fixed variables as well.
ballarin@17095
   195
wenzelm@16234
   196
* Simplifier: can now control the depth to which conditional rewriting
wenzelm@16234
   197
is traced via the PG menu Isabelle -> Settings -> Trace Simp Depth
wenzelm@16234
   198
Limit.
wenzelm@16234
   199
wenzelm@16234
   200
* Simplifier: simplification procedures may now take the current
wenzelm@16234
   201
simpset into account (cf. Simplifier.simproc(_i) / mk_simproc
wenzelm@16234
   202
interface), which is very useful for calling the Simplifier
wenzelm@16234
   203
recursively.  Minor INCOMPATIBILITY: the 'prems' argument of simprocs
wenzelm@16234
   204
is gone -- use prems_of_ss on the simpset instead.  Moreover, the
wenzelm@16234
   205
low-level mk_simproc no longer applies Logic.varify internally, to
wenzelm@16234
   206
allow for use in a context of fixed variables.
wenzelm@16234
   207
wenzelm@16234
   208
* thin_tac now works even if the assumption being deleted contains !!
wenzelm@16234
   209
or ==>.  More generally, erule now works even if the major premise of
wenzelm@16234
   210
the elimination rule contains !! or ==>.
wenzelm@16234
   211
wenzelm@16234
   212
* Reorganized bootstrapping of the Pure theories; CPure is now derived
wenzelm@16234
   213
from Pure, which contains all common declarations already.  Both
wenzelm@16234
   214
theories are defined via plain Isabelle/Isar .thy files.
wenzelm@16234
   215
INCOMPATIBILITY: elements of CPure (such as the CPure.intro /
wenzelm@16234
   216
CPure.elim / CPure.dest attributes) now appear in the Pure name space;
wenzelm@16234
   217
use isatool fixcpure to adapt your theory and ML sources.
wenzelm@16234
   218
wenzelm@16234
   219
* New syntax 'name(i-j, i-, i, ...)' for referring to specific
wenzelm@16234
   220
selections of theorems in named facts via index ranges.
wenzelm@16234
   221
wenzelm@17097
   222
* 'print_theorems': in theory mode, really print the difference
wenzelm@17097
   223
wrt. the last state (works for interactive theory development only),
wenzelm@17097
   224
in proof mode print all local facts (cf. 'print_facts');
wenzelm@17097
   225
wenzelm@17275
   226
* More efficient treatment of intermediate checkpoints in interactive
wenzelm@17275
   227
theory development.
wenzelm@17275
   228
wenzelm@16234
   229
wenzelm@16234
   230
*** Locales ***
ballarin@17095
   231
wenzelm@17385
   232
* New commands for the interpretation of locale expressions in
wenzelm@17385
   233
theories (1), locales (2) and proof contexts (3).  These generate
wenzelm@17385
   234
proof obligations from the expression specification.  After the
wenzelm@17385
   235
obligations have been discharged, theorems of the expression are added
wenzelm@17385
   236
to the theory, target locale or proof context.  The synopsis of the
wenzelm@17385
   237
commands is a follows:
wenzelm@17385
   238
ballarin@17095
   239
  (1) interpretation expr inst
ballarin@17095
   240
  (2) interpretation target < expr
ballarin@17095
   241
  (3) interpret expr inst
wenzelm@17385
   242
ballarin@17095
   243
Interpretation in theories and proof contexts require a parameter
ballarin@17095
   244
instantiation of terms from the current context.  This is applied to
wenzelm@17385
   245
specifications and theorems of the interpreted expression.
wenzelm@17385
   246
Interpretation in locales only permits parameter renaming through the
wenzelm@17385
   247
locale expression.  Interpretation is smart in that interpretations
wenzelm@17385
   248
that are active already do not occur in proof obligations, neither are
wenzelm@17385
   249
instantiated theorems stored in duplicate.  Use 'print_interps' to
wenzelm@17385
   250
inspect active interpretations of a particular locale.  For details,
wenzelm@17385
   251
see the Isar Reference manual.
wenzelm@16234
   252
wenzelm@16234
   253
INCOMPATIBILITY: former 'instantiate' has been withdrawn, use
wenzelm@16234
   254
'interpret' instead.
wenzelm@16234
   255
wenzelm@17385
   256
* New context element 'constrains' for adding type constraints to
wenzelm@17385
   257
parameters.
wenzelm@17385
   258
wenzelm@17385
   259
* Context expressions: renaming of parameters with syntax
wenzelm@17385
   260
redeclaration.
ballarin@17095
   261
ballarin@17095
   262
* Locale declaration: 'includes' disallowed.
ballarin@17095
   263
wenzelm@16234
   264
* Proper static binding of attribute syntax -- i.e. types / terms /
wenzelm@16234
   265
facts mentioned as arguments are always those of the locale definition
wenzelm@16234
   266
context, independently of the context of later invocations.  Moreover,
wenzelm@16234
   267
locale operations (renaming and type / term instantiation) are applied
wenzelm@16234
   268

wenzelm@16234
   269
wenzelm@16234
   270
INCOMPATIBILITY of the ML interface: always pass Attrib.src instead of
wenzelm@16234
   271
actual attributes; rare situations may require Attrib.attribute to
wenzelm@16234
   272
embed those attributes into Attrib.src that lack concrete syntax.
wenzelm@16234
   273
Attribute implementations need to cooperate properly with the static
wenzelm@16234
   274
binding mechanism.  Basic parsers Args.XXX_typ/term/prop and
wenzelm@16234
   275
Attrib.XXX_thm etc. already do the right thing without further
wenzelm@16234
   276
intervention.  Only unusual applications -- such as "where" or "of"
wenzelm@16234
   277
(cf. src/Pure/Isar/attrib.ML), which process arguments depending both
wenzelm@16234
   278
on the context and the facts involved -- may have to assign parsed
wenzelm@16234
   279
values to argument tokens explicitly.

wenzelm@16234

   339
wenzelm@16234
   340
The old syntax is still supported but will disappear in the next
wenzelm@16234

wenzelm@16234
   342

   347
* theory Finite_Set: changed the syntax for 'setsum', summation over
wenzelm@16234
   348
finite sets: "setsum (%x. e) A", which used to be "\<Sum>x:A. e", is
wenzelm@17371
   349
now either "SUM x:A. e" or "\<Sum>x \<in> A. e". The bound variable can
paulson@17189
   350
be a tuple pattern.
wenzelm@16234
   351

  "\<Sum>x = a..<b. e"  for     "setsum (%x. e) {a..<b}"
wenzelm@16234
   357
  "\<Sum>x < k. e"      for     "setsum (%x. e) {..<k}"
wenzelm@16234
   358
wenzelm@16234
   359
The latter form "\<Sum>x < k. e" used to be based on a separate
wenzelm@16234
   360
function "Summation", which has been discontinued.
wenzelm@16234
   361
wenzelm@16234
   362
* theory Finite_Set: in structured induction proofs, the insert case
wenzelm@16234
   363
is now 'case (insert x F)' instead of the old counterintuitive 'case
wenzelm@16234
   364
(insert F x)'.
wenzelm@16234
   365
wenzelm@16234
   366
* The 'refute' command has been extended to support a much larger
wenzelm@16234
   367
fragment of HOL, including axiomatic type classes, constdefs and
wenzelm@16234
   368
typedefs, inductive datatypes and recursion.
wenzelm@16234
   369
wenzelm@16234
   370
* Datatype induction via method 'induct' now preserves the name of the
wenzelm@16234
   371
induction variable. For example, when proving P(xs::'a list) by
wenzelm@16234
   372
induction on xs, the induction step is now P(xs) ==> P(a#xs) rather
wenzelm@16234
   373
than P(list) ==> P(a#list) as previously.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY
wenzelm@16234
   374
in unstructured proof scripts.
wenzelm@16234
   375
wenzelm@16234
   376
* Reworked implementation of records.  Improved scalability for
wenzelm@16234
   377
records with many fields, avoiding performance problems for type
wenzelm@16234
   378
inference. Records are no longer composed of nested field types, but
wenzelm@16234
   379
of nested extension types. Therefore the record type only grows linear
wenzelm@16234
   380
in the number of extensions and not in the number of fields.  The
wenzelm@16234
   381
top-level (users) view on records is preserved.  Potential
wenzelm@16234
   382
INCOMPATIBILITY only in strange cases, where the theory depends on the
wenzelm@16234
   383
old record representation. The type generated for a record is called
wenzelm@16234
   384
<record_name>_ext_type.

wenzelm@16234
   387
proofs triggered by a record definition or a simproc (if
wenzelm@16234
   388
quick_and_dirty is enabled).  Definitions of large records can take
wenzelm@16234
   389
quite long.
wenzelm@16234
   390
wenzelm@16234
   391
New simproc record_upd_simproc for simplification of multiple record
wenzelm@16234
   392
updates enabled by default.  Moreover, trivial updates are also
wenzelm@16234
   393
removed: r(|x := x r|) = r.  INCOMPATIBILITY: old proofs break
wenzelm@16234
   394
occasionally, since simplification is more powerful by default.
wenzelm@16234
   395
wenzelm@17275

wenzelm@17275
   397
type-variables in the term.
wenzelm@17275
   398
wenzelm@16234
   399
* Simplifier: automatically reasons about transitivity chains
wenzelm@16234
   400
involving "trancl" (r^+) and "rtrancl" (r^*) by setting up tactics
wenzelm@16234
   401
provided by Provers/trancl.ML as additional solvers.  INCOMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@16234
   402
old proofs break occasionally as simplification may now solve more
wenzelm@16234
   403
goals than previously.
wenzelm@16234
   404
wenzelm@16234
   405
* Simplifier: converts x <= y into x = y if assumption y <= x is
wenzelm@16234
   406
present.  Works for all partial orders (class "order"), in particular
wenzelm@16234
   407
numbers and sets.  For linear orders (e.g. numbers) it treats ~ x < y
wenzelm@16234
   408
just like y <= x.
wenzelm@16234
   409
wenzelm@16234
   410
* Simplifier: new simproc for "let x = a in f x".  If a is a free or
wenzelm@16234
   411
bound variable or a constant then the let is unfolded.  Otherwise
wenzelm@16234
   412
first a is simplified to b, and then f b is simplified to g. If
wenzelm@16234
   413
possible we abstract b from g arriving at "let x = b in h x",
wenzelm@16234
   414
otherwise we unfold the let and arrive at g.  The simproc can be
wenzelm@16234
   415
enabled/disabled by the reference use_let_simproc.  Potential
wenzelm@16234
   416
INCOMPATIBILITY since simplification is more powerful by default.

* Pure/term.ML: combinators fold_atyps, fold_aterms, fold_term_types,
wenzelm@16860
   540
fold_types traverse types/terms from left to right, observing
wenzelm@16860
   541
canonical argument order.  Supercedes previous foldl_XXX versions,
wenzelm@16868
   542
add_frees, add_vars etc. have been adapted as well: INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@16860
   543
wenzelm@15703
   544
* Pure: output via the Isabelle channels of writeln/warning/error
wenzelm@16234
   545
etc. is now passed through Output.output, with a hook for arbitrary
wenzelm@16234
   546
transformations depending on the print_mode (cf. Output.add_mode --
wenzelm@16234
   547
the first active mode that provides a output function wins).  Already
wenzelm@16234
   548
formatted output may be embedded into further text via Output.raw; the
wenzelm@16234
   549
result of Pretty.string_of/str_of and derived functions
wenzelm@16234
   550
(string_of_term/cterm/thm etc.) is already marked raw to accommodate
wenzelm@16234
   551
easy composition of diagnostic messages etc.  Programmers rarely need
wenzelm@16234
   552
to care about Output.output or Output.raw at all, with some notable
wenzelm@16234
   553
exceptions: Output.output is required when bypassing the standard
wenzelm@16234
   554
channels (writeln etc.), or in token translations to produce properly
wenzelm@16234
   555
formatted results; Output.raw is required when capturing already
wenzelm@16234
   556
output material that will eventually be presented to the user a second
wenzelm@16234
   557
time.  For the default print mode, both Output.output and Output.raw
wenzelm@16234
   558
have no effect.
wenzelm@16234
   559
wenzelm@16718
   560
* Pure: Output.time_accumulator NAME creates an operator ('a -> 'b) ->
wenzelm@16718
   561
'a -> 'b to measure runtime and count invocations; the cumulative
wenzelm@16718
   562
results are displayed at the end of a batch session.
wenzelm@16718
   563
wenzelm@16718
   564
* Isar toplevel: improved diagnostics, mostly for Poly/ML only.
wenzelm@16718
   565
Reference Toplevel.debug (default false) controls detailed printing
wenzelm@16718
   566
and tracing of low-level exceptions; Toplevel.profiling (default 0)
wenzelm@16718
   567
controls execution profiling -- set to 1 for time and 2 for space
wenzelm@16718
   568
(both increase the runtime).
wenzelm@15703
   569
wenzelm@16799
   570
* Isar session: The initial use of ROOT.ML is now always timed,
wenzelm@16799
   571
i.e. the log will show the actual process times, in contrast to the
wenzelm@16799
   572
elapsed wall-clock time that the outer shell wrapper produces.
wenzelm@17371
   573
wenzelm@16689
   574
* Pure: structure OrdList (cf. Pure/General/ord_list.ML) provides a
wenzelm@16690
   575
reasonably efficient light-weight implementation of sets as lists.
wenzelm@16689
   576
wenzelm@16689
   577
* Pure: more efficient orders for basic syntactic entities: added
wenzelm@16689
   578
fast_string_ord, fast_indexname_ord, fast_term_ord; changed sort_ord
wenzelm@16689
   579
and typ_ord to use fast_string_ord and fast_indexname_ord (term_ord is
wenzelm@16689
   580
NOT affected); structures Symtab, Vartab, Typtab, Termtab use the fast
wenzelm@16689
   581
orders now -- potential INCOMPATIBILITY for code that depends on a
wenzelm@16689
   582
particular order for Symtab.keys, Symtab.dest, etc. (consider using
wenzelm@16689
   583
Library.sort_strings on result).
wenzelm@16689
   584
wenzelm@16151
   585
* Pure: name spaces have been refined, with significant changes of the
wenzelm@16234
   586
internal interfaces -- INCOMPATIBILITY.  Renamed cond_extern(_table)
wenzelm@16234
   587
to extern(_table).  The plain name entry path is superceded by a
wenzelm@16234
   588
general 'naming' context, which also includes the 'policy' to produce
wenzelm@16234
   589
a fully qualified name and external accesses of a fully qualified
wenzelm@16234
   590
name; NameSpace.extend is superceded by context dependent
wenzelm@16234
   591
Sign.declare_name.  Several theory and proof context operations modify
wenzelm@16234
   592
the naming context.  Especially note Theory.restore_naming and
wenzelm@16234
   593
ProofContext.restore_naming to get back to a sane state; note that
wenzelm@16234
   594
Theory.add_path is no longer sufficient to recover from
wenzelm@16234
   595
Theory.absolute_path in particular.
wenzelm@16234
   596
wenzelm@16234
   597
* Pure: new flags short_names (default false) and unique_names
wenzelm@16234
   598
(default true) for controlling output of qualified names.  If
wenzelm@16234
   599
short_names is set, names are printed unqualified.  If unique_names is
wenzelm@16234
   600
reset, the name prefix is reduced to the minimum required to achieve
wenzelm@16234
   601
the original result when interning again, even if there is an overlap
wenzelm@16234
   602
with earlier declarations.
wenzelm@16151
   603
wenzelm@16456
   604
* Pure/TheoryDataFun: change of the argument structure; 'prep_ext' is
wenzelm@16456
   605
now 'extend', and 'merge' gets an additional Pretty.pp argument
wenzelm@16456
   606
(useful for printing error messages).  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@16456
   607
wenzelm@16456
   608
* Pure: major reorganization of the theory context.  Type Sign.sg and
wenzelm@16456
   609
Theory.theory are now identified, referring to the universal
wenzelm@16456
   610
Context.theory (see Pure/context.ML).  Actual signature and theory
wenzelm@16456
   611
content is managed as theory data.  The old code and interfaces were
wenzelm@16456
   612
spread over many files and structures; the new arrangement introduces
wenzelm@16456
   613
considerable INCOMPATIBILITY to gain more clarity:
wenzelm@16456
   614
wenzelm@16456
   615
  Context -- theory management operations (name, identity, inclusion,
wenzelm@16456
   616
    parents, ancestors, merge, etc.), plus generic theory data;
wenzelm@16456
   617
wenzelm@16456
   618
  Sign -- logical signature and syntax operations (declaring consts,
wenzelm@16456
   619
    types, etc.), plus certify/read for common entities;
wenzelm@16456
   620
wenzelm@16456
   621
  Theory -- logical theory operations (stating axioms, definitions,
wenzelm@16456
   622
    oracles), plus a copy of logical signature operations (consts,
wenzelm@16456
   623
    types, etc.); also a few basic management operations (Theory.copy,
wenzelm@16456
   624
    Theory.merge, etc.)
wenzelm@16456
   625
wenzelm@16456
   626
The most basic sign_of operations (Theory.sign_of, Thm.sign_of_thm
wenzelm@16456
   627
etc.) as well as the sign field in Thm.rep_thm etc. have been retained
wenzelm@16456
   628
for convenience -- they merely return the theory.
wenzelm@16456
   629
wenzelm@17193
   630
* Pure: type Type.tsig is superceded by theory in most interfaces.
wenzelm@17193
   631
wenzelm@16547
   632
* Pure: the Isar proof context type is already defined early in Pure
wenzelm@16547
   633
as Context.proof (note that ProofContext.context and Proof.context are
wenzelm@16547
   634
aliases, where the latter is the preferred name).  This enables other
wenzelm@16547
   635
Isabelle components to refer to that type even before Isar is present.
wenzelm@16547
   636
wenzelm@16373
   637
* Pure/sign/theory: discontinued named name spaces (i.e. classK,
wenzelm@16373
   638
typeK, constK, axiomK, oracleK), but provide explicit operations for
wenzelm@16373
   639
any of these kinds.  For example, Sign.intern typeK is now
wenzelm@16373
   640
Sign.intern_type, Theory.hide_space Sign.typeK is now
wenzelm@16373
   641
Theory.hide_types.  Also note that former
wenzelm@16373
   642
Theory.hide_classes/types/consts are now
wenzelm@16373
   643
Theory.hide_classes_i/types_i/consts_i, while the non '_i' versions
wenzelm@16373
   644
internalize their arguments!  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@16373
   645
wenzelm@16506
   646
* Pure: get_thm interface (of PureThy and ProofContext) expects
wenzelm@16506
   647
datatype thmref (with constructors Name and NameSelection) instead of
wenzelm@16506
   648
plain string -- INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@16506
   649
wenzelm@16151
   650
* Pure: cases produced by proof methods specify options, where NONE
wenzelm@16234
   651
means to remove case bindings -- INCOMPATIBILITY in
wenzelm@16234
   652
(RAW_)METHOD_CASES.
wenzelm@16151
   653
wenzelm@16373
   654
* Pure: the following operations retrieve axioms or theorems from a
wenzelm@16373
   655
theory node or theory hierarchy, respectively:
wenzelm@16373
   656
wenzelm@16373
   657
  Theory.axioms_of: theory -> (string * term) list
wenzelm@16373
   658
  Theory.all_axioms_of: theory -> (string * term) list
wenzelm@16373
   659
  PureThy.thms_of: theory -> (string * thm) list
wenzelm@16373
   660
  PureThy.all_thms_of: theory -> (string * thm) list
wenzelm@16373
   661
wenzelm@16718
   662
* Pure: print_tac now outputs the goal through the trace channel.
wenzelm@16718
   663
wenzelm@16997
   664
* Pure/Simplifier: improved handling of bound variables (nameless
wenzelm@16997
   665
representation, avoid allocating new strings).  Simprocs that invoke
wenzelm@16997
   666
the Simplifier recursively should use Simplifier.inherit_bounds to
wenzelm@16997
   667
avoid local name clashes.
wenzelm@16997
   668
wenzelm@16997
   669
* Pure/Provers: Simplifier and Classical Reasoner now support proof
wenzelm@16997
   670
context dependent plug-ins (simprocs, solvers, wrappers etc.).  These
wenzelm@16997
   671
extra components are stored in the theory and patched into the
wenzelm@16234
   672
simpset/claset when used in an Isar proof context.  Context dependent
wenzelm@16234
   673
components are maintained by the following theory operations:
wenzelm@16234
   674
wenzelm@16234
   675
  Simplifier.add_context_simprocs
wenzelm@16234
   676
  Simplifier.del_context_simprocs
wenzelm@16234
   677
  Simplifier.set_context_subgoaler
wenzelm@16234
   678
  Simplifier.reset_context_subgoaler
wenzelm@16234
   679
  Simplifier.add_context_looper
wenzelm@16234
   680
  Simplifier.del_context_looper
wenzelm@16234
   681
  Simplifier.add_context_unsafe_solver
wenzelm@16234
   682
  Simplifier.add_context_safe_solver
wenzelm@16234
   683
wenzelm@16234
   684
  Classical.add_context_safe_wrapper
wenzelm@16234
   685
  Classical.del_context_safe_wrapper
wenzelm@16234
   686
  Classical.add_context_unsafe_wrapper
wenzelm@16234
   687
  Classical.del_context_unsafe_wrapper
wenzelm@16234
   688
wenzelm@16234
   689
IMPORTANT NOTE: proof tools (methods etc.) need to use
wenzelm@16234
   690
local_simpset_of and local_claset_of to instead of the primitive
wenzelm@16234
   691
Simplifier.get_local_simpset and Classical.get_local_claset,
wenzelm@16234
   692
respectively, in order to see the context dependent fields!
wenzelm@16234
   693
wenzelm@16251
   694
* File.sysify_path and File.quote_sysify path have been replaced by
wenzelm@16251
   695
File.platform_path and File.shell_path (with appropriate hooks).  This
wenzelm@16251
   696
provides a clean interface for unusual systems where the internal and
wenzelm@16251
   697
external process view of file names are different.
wenzelm@16251
   698
wenzelm@17166
   699
* ML functions legacy_bindings and use_legacy_bindings produce ML fact
wenzelm@17166
   700
bindings for all theorems stored within a given theory; this may help
wenzelm@17166
   701
in porting non-Isar theories to Isar ones, while keeping ML proof
wenzelm@17166
   702
scripts for the time being.

* Allow symlinks to all proper Isabelle executables (Isabelle,
wenzelm@16234
   708
isabelle, isatool etc.).
wenzelm@16234
   709
wenzelm@16234
   710
* ISABELLE_DOC_FORMAT setting specifies preferred document format (for
wenzelm@16234
   711
isatool doc, isatool mkdir, display_drafts etc.).
wenzelm@16234
   712
wenzelm@16234
   713
* isatool usedir: option -f allows specification of the ML file to be
wenzelm@16234
   714
used by Isabelle; default is ROOT.ML.
wenzelm@16234
   715
wenzelm@16251
   716
* New isatool version outputs the version identifier of the Isabelle
wenzelm@16251
   717
distribution being used.
wenzelm@16251
   718
wenzelm@16251
   719

ballarin@14398
   730
* Provers/order.ML:  new efficient reasoner for partial and linear orders.
ballarin@14398
   731
  Replaces linorder.ML.
ballarin@14398
   732
wenzelm@14606
   733
* Pure: Greek letters (except small lambda, \<lambda>), as well as Gothic
wenzelm@14606
   734
  (\<aa>...\<zz>\<AA>...\<ZZ>), calligraphic (\<A>...\<Z>), and Euler
skalberg@14173
   735
  (\<a>...\<z>), are now considered normal letters, and can therefore
skalberg@14173
   736
  be used anywhere where an ASCII letter (a...zA...Z) has until
skalberg@14173
   737
  now. COMPATIBILITY: This obviously changes the parsing of some
skalberg@14173
   738
  terms, especially where a symbol has been used as a binder, say
skalberg@14173
   739
  '\<Pi>x. ...', which is now a type error since \<Pi>x will be parsed
skalberg@14173
   740
  as an identifier.  Fix it by inserting a space around former
skalberg@14173
   741
  symbols.  Call 'isatool fixgreek' to try to fix parsing errors in
skalberg@14173
   742
  existing theory and ML files.
skalberg@14171
   743
paulson@14237
   744
* Pure: Macintosh and Windows line-breaks are now allowed in theory files.
paulson@14237
   745
wenzelm@14731
   746
* Pure: single letter sub/superscripts (\<^isub> and \<^isup>) are now
wenzelm@14731
   747
  allowed in identifiers. Similar to Greek letters \<^isub> is now considered
wenzelm@14731
   748
  a normal (but invisible) letter. For multiple letter subscripts repeat
wenzelm@14731
   749
  \<^isub> like this: x\<^isub>1\<^isub>2.
kleing@14233
   750
kleing@14333
   751
* Pure: There are now sub-/superscripts that can span more than one
kleing@14333
   752
  character. Text between \<^bsub> and \<^esub> is set in subscript in
wenzelm@14606
   753
  ProofGeneral and LaTeX, text between \<^bsup> and \<^esup> in
wenzelm@14606
   754
  superscript. The new control characters are not identifier parts.
kleing@14333
   755
schirmer@14561
   756
* Pure: Control-symbols of the form \<^raw:...> will literally print the
wenzelm@14606
   757
  content of "..." to the latex file instead of \isacntrl... . The "..."
wenzelm@14606
   758
  may consist of any printable characters excluding the end bracket >.
schirmer@14361
   759
paulson@14237
   760
* Pure: Using new Isar command "finalconsts" (or the ML functions
paulson@14237
   761
  Theory.add_finals or Theory.add_finals_i) it is now possible to
paulson@14237
   762
  declare constants "final", which prevents their being given a definition
paulson@14237
   763
  later.  It is useful for constants whose behaviour is fixed axiomatically
skalberg@14224
   764
  rather than definitionally, such as the meta-logic connectives.
skalberg@14224
   765
wenzelm@14606
   766
* Pure: 'instance' now handles general arities with general sorts
wenzelm@14606
   767
  (i.e. intersections of classes),
skalberg@14503
   768
kleing@14547
   769
* Presentation: generated HTML now uses a CSS style sheet to make layout
wenzelm@14731
   770
  (somewhat) independent of content. It is copied from lib/html/isabelle.css.
kleing@14547

* Tactic emulation methods rule_tac, erule_tac, drule_tac, frule_tac,
ballarin@14508
   777
  cut_tac, subgoal_tac and thin_tac:
ballarin@14175
   778
  - Now understand static (Isar) contexts.  As a consequence, users of Isar
ballarin@14175
   779
    locales are no longer forced to write Isar proof scripts.
ballarin@14175
   780
    For details see Isar Reference Manual, paragraph 4.3.2: Further tactic
ballarin@14175
   781
    emulations.
ballarin@14175
   782
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: names of variables to be instantiated may no
ballarin@14211
   783
    longer be enclosed in quotes.  Instead, precede variable name with `?'.
ballarin@14211
   784
    This is consistent with the instantiation attribute "where".
ballarin@14211
   785
ballarin@14257
   786
* Attributes "where" and "of":
ballarin@14285
   787
  - Now take type variables of instantiated theorem into account when reading
ballarin@14285
   788
    the instantiation string.  This fixes a bug that caused instantiated
ballarin@14285
   789
    theorems to have too special types in some circumstances.
ballarin@14285
   790
  - "where" permits explicit instantiations of type variables.
ballarin@14257
   791
wenzelm@14556
   792
* Calculation commands "moreover" and "also" no longer interfere with

* Locales:
ballarin@14211
   797
  - Goal statements involving the context element "includes" no longer
ballarin@14211
   798
    generate theorems with internal delta predicates (those ending on
ballarin@14211
   799
    "_axioms") in the premise.
ballarin@14211
   800
    Resolve particular premise with <locale>.intro to obtain old form.
ballarin@14211
   801
  - Fixed bug in type inference ("unify_frozen") that prevented mix of target
ballarin@14211
   802
    specification and "includes" elements in goal statement.
ballarin@14254
   803
  - Rule sets <locale>.intro and <locale>.axioms no longer declared as
ballarin@14254
   804
    [intro?] and [elim?] (respectively) by default.
ballarin@14508
   805
  - Experimental command for instantiation of locales in proof contexts:
ballarin@14551
   806
        instantiate <label>[<attrs>]: <loc>
ballarin@14508
   807
    Instantiates locale <loc> and adds all its theorems to the current context
ballarin@14551
   808
    taking into account their attributes.  Label and attrs are optional
ballarin@14551
   809
    modifiers, like in theorem declarations.  If present, names of
ballarin@14551
   810
    instantiated theorems are qualified with <label>, and the attributes
ballarin@14551
   811
    <attrs> are applied after any attributes these theorems might have already.
ballarin@14551
   812
      If the locale has assumptions, a chained fact of the form
ballarin@14508
   813
    "<loc> t1 ... tn" is expected from which instantiations of the parameters
ballarin@14551
   814
    are derived.  The command does not support old-style locales declared
ballarin@14551
   815
    with "locale (open)".
ballarin@14551
   816

   825
  the HOL4 system with about 2500 theorems. It is imported by
kleing@14624
   826
  replaying proof terms produced by HOL4 in Isabelle. The HOL4 image

* Simplifier:
ballarin@14398
   831
  - Much improved handling of linear and partial orders.
ballarin@14398
   832
    Reasoners for linear and partial orders are set up for type classes
ballarin@14398
   833
    "linorder" and "order" respectively, and are added to the default simpset
ballarin@14398
   834
    as solvers.  This means that the simplifier can build transitivity chains
ballarin@14398
   835
    to solve goals from the assumptions.
ballarin@14398
   836
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: old proofs break occasionally.  Typically, applications
ballarin@14398
   837
    of blast or auto after simplification become unnecessary because the goal
ballarin@14398
   838
    is solved by simplification already.

  - Numeric types (nat, int, and in HOL-Complex rat, real, complex, etc.) are
wenzelm@14731
   845
    now formalized using the Ring_and_Field theory mentioned above.
paulson@14389
   846
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: simplification and arithmetic behaves somewhat differently
paulson@14389
   847
    than before, because now they are set up once in a generic manner.
wenzelm@14731
   848
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: many type-specific arithmetic laws have gone.
paulson@14480
   849
    Look for the general versions in Ring_and_Field (and Power if they concern
paulson@14480
   850
    exponentiation).

schirmer@14255
   854
* Records:
schirmer@14255
   855
  - Record types are now by default printed with their type abbreviation
schirmer@14255
   856
    instead of the list of all field types. This can be configured via
schirmer@14255
   857
    the reference "print_record_type_abbr".
wenzelm@14731
   858
  - Simproc "record_upd_simproc" for simplification of multiple updates added
schirmer@14255
   859
    (not enabled by default).
schirmer@14427
   860
  - Simproc "record_ex_sel_eq_simproc" to simplify EX x. sel r = x resp.

   861
    EX x. x = sel r to True (not enabled by default).
schirmer@14255
   862
  - Tactic "record_split_simp_tac" to split and simplify records added.
wenzelm@14731
   863
kleing@14136
   864
* 'specification' command added, allowing for definition by

* Unions and Intersections:
nipkow@15119
   879
  The latex output syntax of UN and INT has been changed
nipkow@15119
   880
  from "\Union x \in A. B" to "\Union_{x \in A} B"
nipkow@15119
   881
  i.e. the index formulae has become a subscript.
nipkow@15119
   882
  Similarly for "\Union x. B", and for \Inter instead of \Union.
nipkow@14380
   883
kleing@14418
   884
* Unions and Intersections over Intervals:
wenzelm@14731
   885
  There is new short syntax "UN i<=n. A" for "UN i:{0..n}. A". There is
wenzelm@14731
   886
  also an x-symbol version with subscripts "\<Union>\<^bsub>i <= n\<^esub>. A"
kleing@14418
   887
  like in normal math, and corresponding versions for < and for intersection.
kleing@14418
   888
nipkow@15677
   889
* HOL/List: Ordering "lexico" is renamed "lenlex" and the standard
nipkow@15677
   890
  lexicographic dictonary ordering has been added as "lexord".
nipkow@15677
   891
paulson@14401
   892
* ML: the legacy theory structures Int and List have been removed. They had
paulson@14401

  conflicted with ML Basis Library structures having the same names.
nipkow@14380
   894
webertj@14464
   895
* 'refute' command added to search for (finite) countermodels.  Only works
webertj@14464
   896
  for a fragment of HOL.  The installation of an external SAT solver is
webertj@14464
   897
  highly recommended.  See "HOL/Refute.thy" for details.
webertj@14464
   898
berghofe@14602
   899
* 'quickcheck' command: Allows to find counterexamples by evaluating
berghofe@14602
   900
  formulae under an assignment of free variables to random values.
berghofe@14602
   901
  In contrast to 'refute', it can deal with inductive datatypes,
berghofe@14602
   902
  but cannot handle quantifiers. See "HOL/ex/Quickcheck_Examples.thy"
berghofe@14602

* Provers/simplifier:
berghofe@13618
   918
nipkow@13781
   919
  - Completely reimplemented method simp (ML: Asm_full_simp_tac):
berghofe@13618
   920
    Assumptions are now subject to complete mutual simplification,
berghofe@13618
   921
    not just from left to right. The simplifier now preserves
berghofe@13618
   922
    the order of assumptions.
berghofe@13618
   923
berghofe@13618
   924
    Potential INCOMPATIBILITY:
berghofe@13618
   925
nipkow@13781
   926
    -- simp sometimes diverges where the old version did
nipkow@13781
   927
       not, e.g. invoking simp on the goal
berghofe@13618
   928
berghofe@13618
   929
        [| P (f x); y = x; f x = f y |] ==> Q
berghofe@13618
   930
nipkow@13781
   931
       now gives rise to the infinite reduction sequence
nipkow@13781
   932
nipkow@13781
   933
        P(f x) --(f x = f y)--> P(f y) --(y = x)--> P(f x) --(f x = f y)--> ...
nipkow@13781
   934
nipkow@13781
   935
       Using "simp (asm_lr)" (ML: Asm_lr_simp_tac) instead often solves this
nipkow@13781
   936
       kind of problem.
nipkow@13781
   937
nipkow@13781
   938
    -- Tactics combining classical reasoner and simplification (such as auto)
nipkow@13781
   939
       are also affected by this change, because many of them rely on
nipkow@13781
   940
       simp. They may sometimes diverge as well or yield a different numbers
nipkow@13781
   941
       of subgoals. Try to use e.g. force, fastsimp, or safe instead of auto
nipkow@13781
   942
       in case of problems. Sometimes subsequent calls to the classical
nipkow@13781
   943
       reasoner will fail because a preceeding call to the simplifier too
nipkow@13781
   944
       eagerly simplified the goal, e.g. deleted redundant premises.
berghofe@13618
   945
berghofe@13618
   946
  - The simplifier trace now shows the names of the applied rewrite rules
berghofe@13618
   947
nipkow@13829
   948
  - You can limit the number of recursive invocations of the simplifier
nipkow@13829
   949
    during conditional rewriting (where the simplifie tries to solve the
nipkow@13829
   950
    conditions before applying the rewrite rule):
nipkow@13829
   951
    ML "simp_depth_limit := n"
nipkow@13829
   952
    where n is an integer. Thus you can force termination where previously
nipkow@13829
   953
    the simplifier would diverge.
nipkow@13829
   954
ballarin@13835
   955
  - Accepts free variables as head terms in congruence rules.  Useful in Isar.
nipkow@13829
   956
ballarin@13938
   957
  - No longer aborts on failed congruence proof.  Instead, the
ballarin@13938
   958
    congruence is ignored.

  as HOL/Extraction for some case studies.
berghofe@14008
   963
nipkow@13868
   964
* Pure: The main goal of the proof state is no longer shown by default, only
nipkow@13868
   965
the subgoals. This behaviour is controlled by a new flag.
ballarin@13835
   966
   PG menu: Isabelle/Isar -> Settings -> Show Main Goal

   967
(ML: Proof.show_main_goal).
nipkow@13815
   968
nipkow@13815
   969
* Pure: You can find all matching introduction rules for subgoal 1, i.e. all
nipkow@13815
   970
rules whose conclusion matches subgoal 1:
nipkow@13815
   971
      PG menu: Isabelle/Isar -> Show me -> matching rules
nipkow@13815
   972
The rules are ordered by how closely they match the subgoal.
nipkow@13815
   973
In particular, rules that solve a subgoal outright are displayed first
nipkow@13815
   974
(or rather last, the way they are printed).
nipkow@13815
   975
(ML: ProofGeneral.print_intros())
nipkow@13815
   976
nipkow@13815
   977
* Pure: New flag trace_unify_fail causes unification to print
nipkow@13781
   978
diagnostic information (PG: in trace buffer) when it fails. This is
nipkow@13781
   979
useful for figuring out why single step proofs like rule, erule or
nipkow@13781
   980
assumption failed.
nipkow@13781
   981
nipkow@13815
   982
* Pure: Locale specifications now produce predicate definitions
wenzelm@13410
   983
according to the body of text (covering assumptions modulo local
wenzelm@13410
   984
definitions); predicate "loc_axioms" covers newly introduced text,
wenzelm@13410
   985
while "loc" is cumulative wrt. all included locale expressions; the
wenzelm@13410
   986
latter view is presented only on export into the global theory
wenzelm@13410
   987
context; potential INCOMPATIBILITY, use "(open)" option to fall back
wenzelm@13410
   988
on the old view without predicates;
wenzelm@13410
   989
wenzelm@13459
   990
* Pure: predefined locales "var" and "struct" are useful for sharing
wenzelm@13459
   991
parameters (as in CASL, for example); just specify something like
wenzelm@13459
   992
``var x + var y + struct M'' as import;
wenzelm@13459
   993
wenzelm@13463
   994
* Pure: improved thms_containing: proper indexing of facts instead of
wenzelm@13463
   995
raw theorems; check validity of results wrt. current name space;
wenzelm@13463
   996
include local facts of proof configuration (also covers active
wenzelm@13541
   997
locales), cover fixed variables in index; may use "_" in term
wenzelm@13541
   998
specification; an optional limit for the number of printed facts may
wenzelm@13541
   999
be given (the default is 40);
wenzelm@13541
  1000
wenzelm@13541
  1001
* Pure: disallow duplicate fact bindings within new-style theory files
wenzelm@13541
  1002
(batch-mode only);
wenzelm@13540
  1003
wenzelm@13463
  1004
* Provers: improved induct method: assumptions introduced by case
wenzelm@13463
  1005
"foo" are split into "foo.hyps" (from the rule) and "foo.prems" (from
wenzelm@13463
  1006
the goal statement); "foo" still refers to all facts collectively;
wenzelm@13463
  1007
paulson@13550
  1008
* Provers: the function blast.overloaded has been removed: all constants
paulson@13550
  1009
are regarded as potentially overloaded, which improves robustness in exchange
paulson@13550
  1010
for slight decrease in efficiency;
paulson@13550
  1011
nipkow@13781
  1012
* Provers/linorder: New generic prover for transitivity reasoning over

linear orders.  Note: this prover is not efficient!
nipkow@13781
  1014
wenzelm@13522

omits the infamous "standard" operation, so this is more appropriate
wenzelm@13478
  1108
than prove_goalw_cterm in many situations (e.g. in simprocs);
wenzelm@13478

*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@11572
  1137
wenzelm@11842
  1138
* greatly simplified document preparation setup, including more
wenzelm@11842
  1139
graceful interpretation of isatool usedir -i/-d/-D options, and more
wenzelm@11842
  1140
instructive isatool mkdir; users should basically be able to get
wenzelm@12899
  1141
started with "isatool mkdir HOL Test && isatool make"; alternatively,
wenzelm@12899
  1142
users may run a separate document processing stage manually like this:
wenzelm@12899
  1143
"isatool usedir -D output HOL Test && isatool document Test/output";
wenzelm@11842
  1144
wenzelm@11842
  1145
* theory dependency graph may now be incorporated into documents;
wenzelm@11842
  1146
isatool usedir -g true will produce session_graph.eps/.pdf for use
wenzelm@11842
  1147
with \includegraphics of LaTeX;
wenzelm@11842
  1148
wenzelm@11864
  1149
* proper spacing of consecutive markup elements, especially text
wenzelm@11864
  1150
blocks after section headings;
wenzelm@11864
  1151
wenzelm@11572
  1152
* support bold style (for single symbols only), input syntax is like
wenzelm@11572
  1153
this: "\<^bold>\<alpha>" or "\<^bold>A";
wenzelm@11572
  1154
wenzelm@11814
  1155
* \<bullet> is now output as bold \cdot by default, which looks much
wenzelm@11572
  1156
better in printed text;
wenzelm@11572
  1157
wenzelm@11712
  1158
* added default LaTeX bindings for \<tturnstile> and \<TTurnstile>;
wenzelm@11712
  1159
note that these symbols are currently unavailable in Proof General /
wenzelm@12769
  1160
X-Symbol; new symbols \<zero>, \<one>, ..., \<nine>, and \<euro>;
wenzelm@12690
  1161
wenzelm@12690
  1162
* isatool latex no longer depends on changed TEXINPUTS, instead

  1168
wenzelm@12312
  1169
* Pure/Provers: improved proof by cases and induction;
wenzelm@12280
  1170
  - 'case' command admits impromptu naming of parameters (such as
wenzelm@12280
  1171
    "case (Suc n)");
wenzelm@12280
  1172
  - 'induct' method divinates rule instantiation from the inductive
wenzelm@12280
  1173
    claim; no longer requires excessive ?P bindings for proper
wenzelm@12280
  1174
    instantiation of cases;
wenzelm@12280
  1175
  - 'induct' method properly enumerates all possibilities of set/type
wenzelm@12280
  1176
    rules; as a consequence facts may be also passed through *type*
wenzelm@12280
  1177
    rules without further ado;
wenzelm@12280
  1178
  - 'induct' method now derives symbolic cases from the *rulified*
wenzelm@12280
  1179
    rule (before it used to rulify cases stemming from the internal
wenzelm@12280
  1180
    atomized version); this means that the context of a non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
  1181
    statement becomes is included in the hypothesis, avoiding the
wenzelm@12280
  1182
    slightly cumbersome show "PROP ?case" form;
wenzelm@12280
  1183
  - 'induct' may now use elim-style induction rules without chaining
wenzelm@12280
  1184
    facts, using ``missing'' premises from the goal state; this allows
wenzelm@12280
  1185
    rules stemming from inductive sets to be applied in unstructured
wenzelm@12280
  1186
    scripts, while still benefitting from proper handling of non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
  1187
    statements; NB: major inductive premises need to be put first, all
wenzelm@12280
  1188
    the rest of the goal is passed through the induction;
wenzelm@12280
  1189
  - 'induct' proper support for mutual induction involving non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
  1190
    rule statements (uses the new concept of simultaneous goals, see
wenzelm@12280
  1191
    below);
wenzelm@12853
  1192
  - append all possible rule selections, but only use the first
wenzelm@12853
  1193
    success (no backtracking);
wenzelm@11995
  1194
  - removed obsolete "(simplified)" and "(stripped)" options of methods;
wenzelm@12754
  1195
  - undeclared rule case names default to numbers 1, 2, 3, ...;
wenzelm@12754
  1196
  - added 'print_induct_rules' (covered by help item in recent Proof
wenzelm@12754
  1197
    General versions);
wenzelm@11995
  1198
  - moved induct/cases attributes to Pure, methods to Provers;
wenzelm@11995
  1199
  - generic method setup instantiated for FOL and HOL;
wenzelm@11986
  1200
wenzelm@12163
  1201
* Pure: support multiple simultaneous goal statements, for example
wenzelm@12163
  1202
"have a: A and b: B" (same for 'theorem' etc.); being a pure
wenzelm@12163
  1203
meta-level mechanism, this acts as if several individual goals had
wenzelm@12163
  1204
been stated separately; in particular common proof methods need to be
wenzelm@12163
  1205
repeated in order to cover all claims; note that a single elimination
wenzelm@12163
  1206
step is *not* sufficient to establish the two conjunctions, so this
wenzelm@12163
  1207
fails:
wenzelm@12163
  1208
wenzelm@12163
  1209
  assume "A & B" then have A and B ..   (*".." fails*)
wenzelm@12163
  1210
wenzelm@12163
  1211
better use "obtain" in situations as above; alternative refer to
wenzelm@12163
  1212
multi-step methods like 'auto', 'simp_all', 'blast+' etc.;
wenzelm@12163
  1213
wenzelm@12078
  1214
* Pure: proper integration with ``locales''; unlike the original
webertj@15154
  1215
version by Florian Kammller, Isar locales package high-level proof
wenzelm@12078
  1216
contexts rather than raw logical ones (e.g. we admit to include
wenzelm@12280
  1217
attributes everywhere); operations on locales include merge and
wenzelm@12964
  1218
rename; support for implicit arguments (``structures''); simultaneous
wenzelm@12964
  1219
type-inference over imports and text; see also HOL/ex/Locales.thy for
wenzelm@12964
  1220
some examples;
wenzelm@12078
  1221
wenzelm@12707
  1222
* Pure: the following commands have been ``localized'', supporting a
wenzelm@12707
  1223
target locale specification "(in name)": 'lemma', 'theorem',
wenzelm@12707
  1224
'corollary', 'lemmas', 'theorems', 'declare'; the results will be
wenzelm@12707
  1225
stored both within the locale and at the theory level (exported and
wenzelm@12707
  1226
qualified by the locale name);
wenzelm@12707
  1227
wenzelm@12964
  1228
* Pure: theory goals may now be specified in ``long'' form, with
wenzelm@12964
  1229
ad-hoc contexts consisting of arbitrary locale elements. for example
wenzelm@12964
  1230
``lemma foo: fixes x assumes "A x" shows "B x"'' (local syntax and
wenzelm@12964
  1231
definitions may be given, too); the result is a meta-level rule with
wenzelm@12964
  1232
the context elements being discharged in the obvious way;
wenzelm@12964
  1233
wenzelm@12964
  1234
* Pure: new proof command 'using' allows to augment currently used
wenzelm@12964
  1235
facts after a goal statement ('using' is syntactically analogous to
wenzelm@12964
  1236
'apply', but acts on the goal's facts only); this allows chained facts
wenzelm@12964
  1237
to be separated into parts given before and after a claim, as in
wenzelm@12964
  1238
``from a and b have C using d and e <proof>'';
wenzelm@12078
  1239
wenzelm@11722
  1240
* Pure: renamed "antecedent" case to "rule_context";
wenzelm@11722
  1241
wenzelm@12964
  1242
* Pure: new 'judgment' command records explicit information about the
wenzelm@12964
  1243
object-logic embedding (used by several tools internally); no longer
wenzelm@12964
  1244
use hard-wired "Trueprop";
wenzelm@12964
  1245
wenzelm@11738
  1246
* Pure: added 'corollary' command;
wenzelm@11738
  1247
wenzelm@11722
  1248
* Pure: fixed 'token_translation' command;
wenzelm@11722
  1249
wenzelm@11899
  1250
* Pure: removed obsolete 'exported' attribute;
wenzelm@11899
  1251
wenzelm@11933
  1252
* Pure: dummy pattern "_" in is/let is now automatically lifted over
wenzelm@11933
  1253
bound variables: "ALL x. P x --> Q x" (is "ALL x. _ --> ?C x")
wenzelm@11899
  1254
supersedes more cumbersome ... (is "ALL x. _ x --> ?C x");
wenzelm@11899
  1255
wenzelm@11952
  1256
* Pure: method 'atomize' presents local goal premises as object-level
wenzelm@11952
  1257
statements (atomic meta-level propositions); setup controlled via
wenzelm@11952
  1258
rewrite rules declarations of 'atomize' attribute; example
wenzelm@11952
  1259
application: 'induct' method with proper rule statements in improper
wenzelm@11952
  1260
proof *scripts*;
wenzelm@11952
  1261
wenzelm@12106
  1262
* Pure: emulation of instantiation tactics (rule_tac, cut_tac, etc.)
wenzelm@12106
  1263
now consider the syntactic context of assumptions, giving a better
wenzelm@12106
  1264
chance to get type-inference of the arguments right (this is
wenzelm@12106
  1265
especially important for locales);
wenzelm@12106
  1266
wenzelm@12312
  1267
* Pure: "sorry" no longer requires quick_and_dirty in interactive
wenzelm@12312
  1268
mode;
wenzelm@12312
  1269
wenzelm@12405
  1270
* Pure/obtain: the formal conclusion "thesis", being marked as
wenzelm@12405
  1271
``internal'', may no longer be reference directly in the text;
wenzelm@12405
  1272
potential INCOMPATIBILITY, may need to use "?thesis" in rare
wenzelm@12405
  1273
situations;
wenzelm@12405
  1274
wenzelm@12405
  1275
* Pure: generic 'sym' attribute which declares a rule both as pure
wenzelm@12405
  1276
'elim?' and for the 'symmetric' operation;
wenzelm@12405
  1277
wenzelm@12877
  1278
* Pure: marginal comments ``--'' may now occur just anywhere in the
wenzelm@12877
  1279
text; the fixed correlation with particular command syntax has been
wenzelm@12877
  1280
discontinued;
wenzelm@12877
  1281
berghofe@13023
  1282
* Pure: new method 'rules' is particularly well-suited for proof
berghofe@13023
  1283
search in intuitionistic logic; a bit slower than 'blast' or 'fast',
berghofe@13023
  1284
but often produces more compact proof terms with less detours;
berghofe@13023
  1285
wenzelm@12364
  1286
* Pure/Provers/classical: simplified integration with pure rule
wenzelm@12364
  1287
attributes and methods; the classical "intro?/elim?/dest?"
wenzelm@12364
  1288
declarations coincide with the pure ones; the "rule" method no longer
wenzelm@12364
  1289
includes classically swapped intros; "intro" and "elim" methods no
wenzelm@12364
  1290
longer pick rules from the context; also got rid of ML declarations
wenzelm@12364
  1291
AddXIs/AddXEs/AddXDs; all of this has some potential for
wenzelm@12364
  1292
INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12364
  1293
wenzelm@12405
  1294
* Provers/classical: attribute 'swapped' produces classical inversions
wenzelm@12405
  1295
of introduction rules;
wenzelm@12405
  1296
wenzelm@12364
  1297
* Provers/simplifier: 'simplified' attribute may refer to explicit
wenzelm@12364
  1298
rules instead of full simplifier context; 'iff' attribute handles
wenzelm@12364
  1299
conditional rules;
wenzelm@11936
  1300
wenzelm@11745
  1301
* HOL: 'typedef' now allows alternative names for Rep/Abs morphisms;
wenzelm@11745
  1302
wenzelm@11690
  1303
* HOL: 'recdef' now fails on unfinished automated proofs, use
wenzelm@11633
  1304
"(permissive)" option to recover old behavior;
wenzelm@11633
  1305
wenzelm@11933
  1306
* HOL: 'inductive' no longer features separate (collective) attributes
wenzelm@11933
  1307
for 'intros' (was found too confusing);
wenzelm@11933
  1308
wenzelm@12405
  1309
* HOL: properly declared induction rules less_induct and
wenzelm@12405
  1310
wf_induct_rule;

*** HOL ***
wenzelm@11474
  1314
wenzelm@11702
  1315
* HOL: moved over to sane numeral syntax; the new policy is as
wenzelm@11702
  1316
follows:
wenzelm@11702
  1317
wenzelm@11702
  1318
  - 0 and 1 are polymorphic constants, which are defined on any
wenzelm@11702
  1319
  numeric type (nat, int, real etc.);
wenzelm@11702
  1320
wenzelm@11702
  1321
  - 2, 3, 4, ... and -1, -2, -3, ... are polymorphic numerals, based
wenzelm@11702
  1322
  binary representation internally;
wenzelm@11702
  1323
wenzelm@11702
  1324
  - type nat has special constructor Suc, and generally prefers Suc 0
wenzelm@11702
  1325
  over 1::nat and Suc (Suc 0) over 2::nat;
wenzelm@11702
  1326
wenzelm@12364
  1327
This change may cause significant problems of INCOMPATIBILITY; here
wenzelm@12364
  1328
are some hints on converting existing sources:
wenzelm@11702
  1329
wenzelm@11702
  1330
  - due to the new "num" token, "-0" and "-1" etc. are now atomic
wenzelm@11702
  1331
  entities, so expressions involving "-" (unary or binary minus) need
wenzelm@11702
  1332
  to be spaced properly;
wenzelm@11702
  1333
wenzelm@11702
  1334
  - existing occurrences of "1" may need to be constraint "1::nat" or
wenzelm@11702
  1335
  even replaced by Suc 0; similar for old "2";
wenzelm@11702
  1336
wenzelm@11702
  1337
  - replace "#nnn" by "nnn", and "#-nnn" by "-nnn";
wenzelm@11702
  1338
wenzelm@11702
  1339
  - remove all special provisions on numerals in proofs;
wenzelm@11702
  1340
wenzelm@13042
  1341
* HOL: simp rules nat_number expand numerals on nat to Suc/0
wenzelm@12837
  1342
representation (depends on bin_arith_simps in the default context);
wenzelm@12837
  1343
wenzelm@12736
  1344
* HOL: symbolic syntax for x^2 (numeral 2);
wenzelm@12736
  1345
wenzelm@12335
  1346
* HOL: the class of all HOL types is now called "type" rather than
wenzelm@12335
  1347
"term"; INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt references to this type class
wenzelm@12335
  1348
in axclass/classes, instance/arities, and (usually rare) occurrences
wenzelm@12335
  1349
in typings (of consts etc.); internally the class is called
wenzelm@12335
  1350
"HOL.type", ML programs should refer to HOLogic.typeS;
wenzelm@12335
  1351
wenzelm@12280
  1352
* HOL/record package improvements:
wenzelm@12280
  1353
  - new derived operations "fields" to build a partial record section,
wenzelm@12280
  1354
    "extend" to promote a fixed record to a record scheme, and
wenzelm@12280
  1355
    "truncate" for the reverse; cf. theorems "xxx.defs", which are *not*
wenzelm@12280
  1356
    declared as simp by default;
wenzelm@12587
  1357
  - shared operations ("more", "fields", etc.) now need to be always
wenzelm@12587
  1358
    qualified) --- potential INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12280
  1359
  - removed "make_scheme" operations (use "make" with "extend") --
wenzelm@12280
  1360
    INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@11937
  1361
  - removed "more" class (simply use "term") -- INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12253
  1362
  - provides cases/induct rules for use with corresponding Isar
wenzelm@12253
  1363
    methods (for concrete records, record schemes, concrete more
wenzelm@12280
  1364
    parts, and schematic more parts -- in that order);
wenzelm@11930
  1365
  - internal definitions directly based on a light-weight abstract
wenzelm@11930
  1366
    theory of product types over typedef rather than datatype;
wenzelm@11930
  1367
berghofe@13023
  1368
* HOL: generic code generator for generating executable ML code from
berghofe@13023
  1369
specifications; specific support for HOL constructs such as inductive
berghofe@13023
  1370
datatypes and sets, as well as recursive functions; can be invoked
berghofe@13023
  1371
via 'generate_code' theory section;
berghofe@13023
  1372
wenzelm@11933
  1373
* HOL: canonical cases/induct rules for n-tuples (n = 3..7);
wenzelm@11933
  1374
paulson@13824
  1375
* HOL: consolidated and renamed several theories.  In particular:
wenzelm@14731
  1376
        Ord.thy has been absorbed into HOL.thy
wenzelm@14731
  1377
        String.thy has been absorbed into List.thy
wenzelm@14731
  1378
wenzelm@11802
  1379
* HOL: concrete setsum syntax "\<Sum>i:A. b" == "setsum (%i. b) A"
wenzelm@11802
  1380
(beware of argument permutation!);
wenzelm@11802
  1381
wenzelm@11657
  1382
* HOL: linorder_less_split superseded by linorder_cases;
wenzelm@11657
  1383
wenzelm@12917
  1384
* HOL/List: "nodups" renamed to "distinct";
nipkow@12889
  1385
wenzelm@11633
  1386
* HOL: added "The" definite description operator; move Hilbert's "Eps"
paulson@13824
  1387
to peripheral theory "Hilbert_Choice"; some INCOMPATIBILITIES:
paulson@13824
  1388
  - Ex_def has changed, now need to use some_eq_ex
wenzelm@11437
  1389
wenzelm@11572
  1390
* HOL: made split_all_tac safe; EXISTING PROOFS MAY FAIL OR LOOP, so
wenzelm@11572
  1391
in this (rare) case use:
wenzelm@11572
  1392
wenzelm@11572
  1393
  delSWrapper "split_all_tac"
wenzelm@11572
  1394
  addSbefore ("unsafe_split_all_tac", unsafe_split_all_tac)
wenzelm@11572
  1395
wenzelm@11572
  1396
* HOL: added safe wrapper "split_conv_tac" to claset; EXISTING PROOFS
wenzelm@11474
  1397
MAY FAIL;
nipkow@11361
  1398
wenzelm@11572
  1399
* HOL: introduced f^n = f o ... o f; warning: due to the limits of
wenzelm@11572
  1400
Isabelle's type classes, ^ on functions and relations has too general
wenzelm@11572
  1401
a domain, namely ('a * 'b) set and 'a => 'b; this means that it may be
wenzelm@11572
  1402
necessary to attach explicit type constraints;
nipkow@11307
  1403
wenzelm@12917
  1404
* HOL/Relation: the prefix name of the infix "O" has been changed from
wenzelm@12917
  1405
"comp" to "rel_comp"; INCOMPATIBILITY: a few theorems have been
wenzelm@12917
  1406
renamed accordingly (eg "compI" -> "rel_compI").
nipkow@12489
  1407
wenzelm@11487
  1408
* HOL: syntax translations now work properly with numerals and records
wenzelm@11487
  1409
expressions;
wenzelm@11474
  1410
wenzelm@12457
  1411
* HOL: bounded abstraction now uses syntax "%" / "\<lambda>" instead
wenzelm@12457
  1412
of "lam" -- INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@11474
  1413
wenzelm@11933
  1414
* HOL: got rid of some global declarations (potential INCOMPATIBILITY
wenzelm@11933
  1415
for ML tools): const "()" renamed "Product_Type.Unity", type "unit"
wenzelm@11933
  1416
renamed "Product_Type.unit";
wenzelm@11611
  1417
nipkow@12564
  1418
* HOL: renamed rtrancl_into_rtrancl2 to converse_rtrancl_into_rtrancl
nipkow@12564
  1419
wenzelm@12924
  1420
* HOL: removed obsolete theorem "optionE" (use "option.exhaust", or
wenzelm@12924
  1421
the "cases" method);
wenzelm@12924
  1422
wenzelm@12597
  1423
* HOL/GroupTheory: group theory examples including Sylow's theorem (by
webertj@15154
  1424
Florian Kammller);
wenzelm@12597
  1425
wenzelm@12608
  1426
* HOL/IMP: updated and converted to new-style theory format; several
wenzelm@12608
  1427
parts turned into readable document, with proper Isar proof texts and
wenzelm@12608
  1428
some explanations (by Gerwin Klein);
wenzelm@12597
  1429
wenzelm@12734
  1430
* HOL-Real: added Complex_Numbers (by Gertrud Bauer);
wenzelm@12734
  1431
wenzelm@12690
  1432
* HOL-Hyperreal is now a logic image;
wenzelm@12690
  1433
wenzelm@11611
  1434
wenzelm@12022
  1435
*** HOLCF ***
wenzelm@12022
  1436
wenzelm@12622
  1437
* Isar: consts/constdefs supports mixfix syntax for continuous
wenzelm@12622
  1438
operations;
wenzelm@12622
  1439
wenzelm@12622
  1440
* Isar: domain package adapted to new-style theory format, e.g. see
wenzelm@12622
  1441
HOLCF/ex/Dnat.thy;
wenzelm@12622
  1442
wenzelm@12622
  1443
* theory Lift: proper use of rep_datatype lift instead of ML hacks --
wenzelm@12280
  1444
potential INCOMPATIBILITY; now use plain induct_tac instead of former
wenzelm@12280
  1445
lift.induct_tac, always use UU instead of Undef;
wenzelm@12022
  1446
wenzelm@12597
  1447
* HOLCF/IMP: updated and converted to new-style theory;
wenzelm@12597
  1448
wenzelm@12022
  1449
wenzelm@11474
  1450
*** ZF ***
wenzelm@11474
  1451
wenzelm@12622
  1452
* Isar: proper integration of logic-specific tools and packages,
wenzelm@12622
  1453
including theory commands '(co)inductive', '(co)datatype',
wenzelm@12622
  1454
'rep_datatype', 'inductive_cases', as well as methods 'ind_cases',
wenzelm@12622
  1455
'induct_tac', 'case_tac', and 'typecheck' (with attribute 'TC');
wenzelm@12622
  1456
wenzelm@12622
  1457
* theory Main no longer includes AC; for the Axiom of Choice, base
wenzelm@12622
  1458
your theory on Main_ZFC;
wenzelm@12622
  1459
wenzelm@12622
  1460
* the integer library now covers quotients and remainders, with many
wenzelm@12622
  1461
laws relating division to addition, multiplication, etc.;
paulson@12563
  1462
wenzelm@12280
  1463
* ZF/UNITY: Chandy and Misra's UNITY is now available in ZF, giving a
wenzelm@12280
  1464
typeless version of the formalism;
wenzelm@12280
  1465
wenzelm@13025
  1466
* ZF/AC, Coind, IMP, Resid: updated and converted to new-style theory
wenzelm@13025
  1467
format;
wenzelm@12608
  1468
wenzelm@12280
  1469
* ZF/Induct: new directory for examples of inductive definitions,
wenzelm@12608
  1470
including theory Multiset for multiset orderings; converted to
wenzelm@12608
  1471
new-style theory format;
wenzelm@12177
  1472
wenzelm@13025
  1473
* ZF: many new theorems about lists, ordinals, etc.;
paulson@12850

wenzelm@11474
  1476
*** General ***
wenzelm@11474
  1477
wenzelm@12280
  1478
* Pure/kernel: meta-level proof terms (by Stefan Berghofer); reference
wenzelm@12280
  1479
variable proof controls level of detail: 0 = no proofs (only oracle
wenzelm@12280
  1480
dependencies), 1 = lemma dependencies, 2 = compact proof terms; see
wenzelm@12280
  1481
also ref manual for further ML interfaces;
wenzelm@12280
  1482
wenzelm@12280
  1483
* Pure/axclass: removed obsolete ML interface
wenzelm@12280
  1484
goal_subclass/goal_arity;
wenzelm@12280
  1485
wenzelm@12280
  1486
* Pure/syntax: new token syntax "num" for plain numerals (without "#"
wenzelm@12280
  1487
of "xnum"); potential INCOMPATIBILITY, since -0, -1 etc. are now
wenzelm@12280
  1488
separate tokens, so expressions involving minus need to be spaced
wenzelm@12280
  1489
properly;
wenzelm@12280
  1490
wenzelm@12312
  1491
* Pure/syntax: support non-oriented infixes, using keyword "infix"
wenzelm@12312
  1492
rather than "infixl" or "infixr";
wenzelm@12312
  1493
wenzelm@12312
  1494
* Pure/syntax: concrete syntax for dummy type variables admits genuine
wenzelm@12312
  1495
sort constraint specifications in type inference; e.g. "x::_::foo"
wenzelm@12312
  1496
ensures that the type of "x" is of sort "foo" (but not necessarily a
wenzelm@12312
  1497
type variable);
wenzelm@12280
  1498
wenzelm@12280
  1499
* Pure/syntax: print modes "type_brackets" and "no_type_brackets"
wenzelm@12280
  1500
control output of nested => (types); the default behavior is
wenzelm@12280
  1501
"type_brackets";
wenzelm@12280
  1502
wenzelm@12280
  1503
* Pure/syntax: builtin parse translation for "_constify" turns valued
wenzelm@11817
  1504
tokens into AST constants;
wenzelm@11474
  1505
wenzelm@12280
  1506
* Pure/syntax: prefer later declarations of translations and print
wenzelm@12280
  1507
translation functions; potential INCOMPATIBILITY: need to reverse
wenzelm@12280
  1508
multiple declarations for same syntax element constant;
wenzelm@12280
  1509
wenzelm@12832
  1510
* Pure/show_hyps reset by default (in accordance to existing Isar
wenzelm@12832
  1511
practice);
wenzelm@12832
  1512
wenzelm@12280
  1513
* Provers/classical: renamed addaltern to addafter, addSaltern to
wenzelm@12280
  1514
addSafter;
wenzelm@12280
  1515
wenzelm@12280
  1516
* Provers/clasimp: ``iff'' declarations now handle conditional rules
wenzelm@12280
  1517
as well;
wenzelm@12253
  1518
wenzelm@12538
  1519
* system: tested support for MacOS X; should be able to get Isabelle +
wenzelm@12538
  1520
Proof General to work in a plain Terminal after installing Poly/ML
wenzelm@12538
  1521
(e.g. from the Isabelle distribution area) and GNU bash alone
wenzelm@12538
  1522
(e.g. from http://www.apple.com); full X11, XEmacs and X-Symbol
wenzelm@12538
  1523
support requires further installations, e.g. from
wenzelm@12538
  1524
http://fink.sourceforge.net/);
wenzelm@12538
  1525
wenzelm@12280
  1526
* system: support Poly/ML 4.1.1 (able to manage larger heaps);
wenzelm@11551
  1527
wenzelm@12753
  1528
* system: reduced base memory usage by Poly/ML (approx. 20 MB instead
wenzelm@12753
  1529
of 40 MB), cf. ML_OPTIONS;
wenzelm@12753
  1530
wenzelm@11633
  1531
* system: Proof General keywords specification is now part of the
wenzelm@11633
  1532
Isabelle distribution (see etc/isar-keywords.el);
wenzelm@11633
  1533
wenzelm@12728
  1534
* system: support for persistent Proof General sessions (refrain from
wenzelm@12728
  1535
outdating all loaded theories on startup); user may create writable
wenzelm@12728
  1536
logic images like this: ``isabelle -q HOL Test'';
wenzelm@12597
  1537
wenzelm@11551
  1538
* system: smart selection of Isabelle process versus Isabelle
wenzelm@11572
  1539
interface, accommodates case-insensitive file systems (e.g. HFS+); may
wenzelm@11572
  1540
run both "isabelle" and "Isabelle" even if file names are badly
wenzelm@11572
  1541
damaged (executable inspects the case of the first letter of its own
wenzelm@11572
  1542
name); added separate "isabelle-process" and "isabelle-interface";
wenzelm@11551
  1543
wenzelm@12472
  1544
* system: refrain from any attempt at filtering input streams; no
wenzelm@12472
  1545
longer support ``8bit'' encoding of old isabelle font, instead proper
wenzelm@12472
  1546
iso-latin characters may now be used; the related isatools
wenzelm@12472
  1547
"symbolinput" and "nonascii" have disappeared as well;
wenzelm@12472
  1548
wenzelm@12472
  1549
* system: removed old "xterm" interface (the print modes "xterm" and
wenzelm@12472
  1550
"xterm_color" are still available for direct use in a suitable
wenzelm@12472
  1551

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES ***
nipkow@10224
  1559
paulson@11241
  1560
* HOL: please note that theories in the Library and elsewhere often use the
paulson@11241
  1561
new-style (Isar) format; to refer to their theorems in an ML script you must
wenzelm@12622
  1562
bind them to ML identifers by e.g.      val thm_name = thm "thm_name";
paulson@11241
  1563
wenzelm@11043
  1564
* HOL: inductive package no longer splits induction rule aggressively,
wenzelm@11043
  1565
but only as far as specified by the introductions given; the old
oheimb@11130
  1566
format may be recovered via ML function complete_split_rule or attribute
wenzelm@11043
  1567
'split_rule (complete)';
wenzelm@11043
  1568
wenzelm@10998
  1569
* HOL: induct renamed to lfp_induct, lfp_Tarski to lfp_unfold,
wenzelm@10998
  1570
gfp_Tarski to gfp_unfold;
nipkow@10224
  1571
paulson@10288
  1572
* HOL: contrapos, contrapos2 renamed to contrapos_nn, contrapos_pp;
paulson@10288
  1573
wenzelm@10858
  1574
* HOL: infix "dvd" now has priority 50 rather than 70 (because it is a
wenzelm@10858
  1575
relation); infix "^^" has been renamed "``"; infix "``" has been
wenzelm@10858
  1576
renamed "`"; "univalent" has been renamed "single_valued";
nipkow@10793
  1577
wenzelm@10998
  1578
* HOL/Real: "rinv" and "hrinv" replaced by overloaded "inverse"
wenzelm@10998
  1579
operation;
wenzelm@10998
  1580
nipkow@10868
  1581
* HOLCF: infix "`" has been renamed "$"; the symbol syntax is \<cdot>;
nipkow@10856
  1582
wenzelm@10391
  1583
* Isar: 'obtain' no longer declares "that" fact as simp/intro;
wenzelm@10391
  1584
wenzelm@10401
  1585
* Isar/HOL: method 'induct' now handles non-atomic goals; as a
wenzelm@10401
  1586
consequence, it is no longer monotonic wrt. the local goal context
wenzelm@10401
  1587
(which is now passed through the inductive cases);
wenzelm@10401
  1588
wenzelm@10976
  1589
* Document preparation: renamed standard symbols \<ll> to \<lless> and
wenzelm@10976
  1590
\<gg> to \<ggreater>;
wenzelm@10976
  1591
nipkow@10224

wenzelm@10245
  1593
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@10245
  1594
wenzelm@10858
  1595
* \isabellestyle{NAME} selects version of Isabelle output (currently
wenzelm@10858
  1596
available: are "it" for near math-mode best-style output, "sl" for
wenzelm@10858
  1597
slanted text style, and "tt" for plain type-writer; if no
wenzelm@10858
  1598
\isabellestyle command is given, output is according to slanted
wenzelm@10858
  1599
type-writer);
wenzelm@10858
  1600
wenzelm@10322
  1601
* support sub/super scripts (for single symbols only), input syntax is
wenzelm@10322
  1602
like this: "A\<^sup>*" or "A\<^sup>\<star>";
wenzelm@10322
  1603
wenzelm@10858
  1604
* some more standard symbols; see Appendix A of the system manual for
wenzelm@11062
  1605
the complete list of symbols defined in isabellesym.sty;
wenzelm@10858
  1606
wenzelm@10998
  1607
* improved isabelle style files; more abstract symbol implementation
wenzelm@10998
  1608
(should now use \isamath{...} and \isatext{...} in custom symbol
wenzelm@10998
  1609
definitions);
wenzelm@10998
  1610
wenzelm@10634
  1611
* antiquotation @{goals} and @{subgoals} for output of *dynamic* goals
wenzelm@10634
  1612
state; Note that presentation of goal states does not conform to
wenzelm@10634

*** Isar ***
wenzelm@10306
  1626
wenzelm@10547
  1627
* Pure: Isar now suffers initial goal statements to contain unbound
wenzelm@10547
  1628
schematic variables (this does not conform to actual readable proof
wenzelm@10547
  1629
documents, due to unpredictable outcome and non-compositional proof
wenzelm@10547
  1630
checking); users who know what they are doing may use schematic goals
wenzelm@10547
  1631
for Prolog-style synthesis of proven results;
wenzelm@10547
  1632
wenzelm@10391
  1633
* Pure: assumption method (an implicit finishing) now handles actual
wenzelm@10391
  1634
rules as well;
wenzelm@10391
  1635
wenzelm@10391
  1636
* Pure: improved 'obtain' --- moved to Pure, insert "that" into
wenzelm@10391
  1637
initial goal, declare "that" only as Pure intro (only for single
wenzelm@10391
  1638
steps); the "that" rule assumption may now be involved in implicit
wenzelm@10391
  1639
finishing, thus ".." becomes a feasible for trivial obtains;
wenzelm@10391
  1640
wenzelm@10391
  1641
* Pure: default proof step now includes 'intro_classes'; thus trivial
wenzelm@10391
  1642
instance proofs may be performed by "..";
wenzelm@10391
  1643
wenzelm@10391
  1644
* Pure: ?thesis / ?this / "..." now work for pure meta-level
wenzelm@10391
  1645
statements as well;
wenzelm@10306
  1646
wenzelm@11097
  1647
* Pure: more robust selection of calculational rules;
wenzelm@11097
  1648
wenzelm@10858
  1649
* Pure: the builtin notion of 'finished' goal now includes the ==-refl
wenzelm@10858
  1650
rule (as well as the assumption rule);
wenzelm@10858
  1651
wenzelm@10858
  1652
* Pure: 'thm_deps' command visualizes dependencies of theorems and
wenzelm@10858
  1653
lemmas, using the graph browser tool;
wenzelm@10858
  1654
wenzelm@10944
  1655
* Pure: predict failure of "show" in interactive mode;
wenzelm@10944
  1656
wenzelm@11016
  1657
* Pure: 'thms_containing' now takes actual terms as arguments;
wenzelm@11016
  1658
wenzelm@10401
  1659
* HOL: improved method 'induct' --- now handles non-atomic goals
wenzelm@10401
  1660
(potential INCOMPATIBILITY); tuned error handling;
wenzelm@10401
  1661
wenzelm@10557
  1662
* HOL: cases and induct rules now provide explicit hints about the
wenzelm@10547
  1663
number of facts to be consumed (0 for "type" and 1 for "set" rules);
wenzelm@10547
  1664
any remaining facts are inserted into the goal verbatim;
wenzelm@10547
  1665
wenzelm@10858
  1666
* HOL: local contexts (aka cases) may now contain term bindings as
wenzelm@10858
  1667
well; the 'cases' and 'induct' methods new provide a ?case binding for
wenzelm@10858
  1668
the result to be shown in each case;
wenzelm@10858
  1669
wenzelm@10770
  1670
* HOL: added 'recdef_tc' command;
wenzelm@10770
  1671
wenzelm@11016
  1672
* isatool convert assists in eliminating legacy ML scripts;

wenzelm@10245
  1677
* HOL/Library: a collection of generic theories to be used together
wenzelm@10245
  1678
with main HOL; the theory loader path already includes this directory
wenzelm@10245
  1679
by default; the following existing theories have been moved here:
wenzelm@10245
  1680
HOL/Induct/Multiset, HOL/Induct/Acc (as Accessible_Part), HOL/While
wenzelm@10337
  1681
(as While_Combinator), HOL/Lex/Prefix (as List_Prefix);
wenzelm@10245
  1682
wenzelm@10966
  1683
* HOL/Unix: "Some aspects of Unix file-system security", a typical
wenzelm@10966
  1684
modelling and verification task performed in Isabelle/HOL +
wenzelm@10966
  1685
Isabelle/Isar + Isabelle document preparation (by Markus Wenzel).
wenzelm@10966
  1686
wenzelm@11094
  1687
* HOL/Algebra: special summation operator SUM no longer exists, it has
wenzelm@11094
  1688
been replaced by setsum; infix 'assoc' now has priority 50 (like
wenzelm@11094
  1689
'dvd'); axiom 'one_not_zero' has been moved from axclass 'ring' to
wenzelm@11094
  1690
'domain', this makes the theory consistent with mathematical
wenzelm@11094
  1691
literature;
wenzelm@11094
  1692
wenzelm@10514
  1693
* HOL basics: added overloaded operations "inverse" and "divide"
wenzelm@10726
  1694
(infix "/"), syntax for generic "abs" operation, generic summation
wenzelm@11094
  1695
operator \<Sum>;
wenzelm@10452
  1696
wenzelm@10391
  1697
* HOL/typedef: simplified package, provide more useful rules (see also
wenzelm@10391
  1698
HOL/subset.thy);
wenzelm@10391
  1699
wenzelm@10915
  1700
* HOL/datatype: induction rule for arbitrarily branching datatypes is
wenzelm@10915
  1701
now expressed as a proper nested rule (old-style tactic scripts may
wenzelm@10915
  1702
require atomize_strip_tac to cope with non-atomic premises);
wenzelm@10915
  1703
wenzelm@10915
  1704
* HOL: renamed theory "Prod" to "Product_Type", renamed "split" rule
wenzelm@10915
  1705
to "split_conv" (old name still available for compatibility);
wenzelm@10915
  1706
wenzelm@10915
  1707
* HOL: improved concrete syntax for strings (e.g. allows translation
wenzelm@10915
  1708
rules with string literals);
wenzelm@10915
  1709
paulson@12245
  1710
* HOL-Real-Hyperreal: this extends HOL-Real with the hyperreals
paulson@12245
  1711
 and Fleuriot's mechanization of analysis, including the transcendental
paulson@12245
  1712
 functions for the reals;
paulson@10756
  1713
wenzelm@11094
  1714
* HOL/Real, HOL/Hyperreal: improved arithmetic simplification;

wenzelm@10858
  1716
paulson@10474
  1717
*** CTT ***
paulson@10474
  1718
wenzelm@10547
  1719
* CTT: x-symbol support for Pi, Sigma, -->, : (membership); note that
wenzelm@10547
  1720
"lam" is displayed as TWO lambda-symbols
paulson@10474
  1721
wenzelm@10547
  1722
* CTT: theory Main now available, containing everything (that is, Bool
wenzelm@10547

  1726
*** General ***
wenzelm@10391
  1727
wenzelm@10547
  1728
* Pure: the Simplifier has been implemented properly as a derived rule
wenzelm@10547
  1729
outside of the actual kernel (at last!); the overall performance
wenzelm@10547
  1730
penalty in practical applications is about 50%, while reliability of
wenzelm@10547
  1731
the Isabelle inference kernel has been greatly improved;
wenzelm@10547
  1732
wenzelm@11112
  1733
* print modes "brackets" and "no_brackets" control output of nested =>
wenzelm@11112
  1734
(types) and ==> (props); the default behaviour is "brackets";
wenzelm@11112
  1735
wenzelm@10391
  1736
* Provers: fast_tac (and friends) now handle actual object-logic rules
wenzelm@10391
  1737
as assumptions as well;
wenzelm@10391
  1738
wenzelm@11124
  1739
* system: support Poly/ML 4.0;
wenzelm@11124
  1740
wenzelm@11124
  1741
* system: isatool install handles KDE version 1 or 2;

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES ***
paulson@8014
  1749
wenzelm@8848
  1750
* HOL: simplification of natural numbers is much changed; to partly
wenzelm@8848
  1751
recover the old behaviour (e.g. to prevent n+n rewriting to #2*n)
wenzelm@8848
  1752
issue the following ML commands:
wenzelm@8848
  1753
wenzelm@8848
  1754
  Delsimprocs Nat_Numeral_Simprocs.cancel_numerals;
wenzelm@8848
  1755
  Delsimprocs [Nat_Numeral_Simprocs.combine_numerals];
paulson@8788
  1756
wenzelm@10129
  1757
* HOL: simplification no longer dives into case-expressions; this is
wenzelm@10129
  1758
controlled by "t.weak_case_cong" for each datatype t;
wenzelm@10003
  1759
wenzelm@10003
  1760
* HOL: nat_less_induct renamed to less_induct;
wenzelm@10003
  1761
wenzelm@10003
  1762
* HOL: systematic renaming of the SOME (Eps) rules, may use isatool
wenzelm@10003
  1763
fixsome to patch .thy and .ML sources automatically;
paulson@8967
  1764
wenzelm@10003
  1765
  select_equality  -> some_equality
wenzelm@10003
  1766
  select_eq_Ex     -> some_eq_ex
wenzelm@10003
  1767
  selectI2EX       -> someI2_ex
wenzelm@10003
  1768
  selectI2         -> someI2
wenzelm@10003
  1769
  selectI          -> someI
wenzelm@10003
  1770
  select1_equality -> some1_equality
wenzelm@10003
  1771
  Eps_sym_eq       -> some_sym_eq_trivial
wenzelm@10003
  1772
  Eps_eq           -> some_eq_trivial
wenzelm@10003
  1773
wenzelm@10003
  1774
* HOL: exhaust_tac on datatypes superceded by new generic case_tac;
wenzelm@10003
  1775
wenzelm@10003
  1776
* HOL: removed obsolete theorem binding expand_if (refer to split_if
wenzelm@10003
  1777
instead);
wenzelm@10003
  1778
wenzelm@10003
  1779
* HOL: the recursion equations generated by 'recdef' are now called
wenzelm@10003
  1780
f.simps instead of f.rules;
wenzelm@10003
  1781
wenzelm@10003
  1782
* HOL: qed_spec_mp now also handles bounded ALL as well;
wenzelm@10003
  1783
wenzelm@10003
  1784
* HOL: 0 is now overloaded, so the type constraint ":: nat" may
wenzelm@10003
  1785
sometimes be needed;
wenzelm@10003
  1786
wenzelm@10003
  1787
* HOL: the constant for "f``x" is now "image" rather than "op ``";
paulson@8014
  1788
paulson@10065
  1789
* HOL: the constant for "f-``x" is now "vimage" rather than "op -``";
paulson@10065
  1790
wenzelm@9330
  1791
* HOL: the disjoint sum is now "<+>" instead of "Plus"; the cartesian
wenzelm@9330
  1792
product is now "<*>" instead of "Times"; the lexicographic product is
wenzelm@9330
  1793
now "<*lex*>" instead of "**";
nipkow@8705
  1794
wenzelm@10003
  1795
* HOL: theory Sexp is now in HOL/Induct examples (it used to be part
wenzelm@10003
  1796
of main HOL, but was unused); better use HOL's datatype package;
paulson@9971
  1797
wenzelm@10137
  1798
* HOL: removed "symbols" syntax for constant "override" of theory Map;
wenzelm@10137
  1799
the old syntax may be recovered as follows:
wenzelm@10137
  1800
wenzelm@10137
  1801
  syntax (symbols)
wenzelm@10137
  1802
    override  :: "('a ~=> 'b) => ('a ~=> 'b) => ('a ~=> 'b)"
wenzelm@10137
  1803
      (infixl "\\<oplus>" 100)
wenzelm@10137
  1804
wenzelm@8848
  1805
* HOL/Real: "rabs" replaced by overloaded "abs" function;
wenzelm@8848
  1806
wenzelm@8887
  1807
* HOL/ML: even fewer consts are declared as global (see theories Ord,
wenzelm@8887
  1808
Lfp, Gfp, WF); this only affects ML packages that refer to const names
wenzelm@8887
  1809
internally;
wenzelm@8887
  1810
wenzelm@10003
  1811
* HOL and ZF: syntax for quotienting wrt an equivalence relation
wenzelm@10003
  1812
changed from A/r to A//r;
wenzelm@9908
  1813
wenzelm@10003
  1814
* ZF: new treatment of arithmetic (nat & int) may break some old
wenzelm@10003
  1815
proofs;
wenzelm@8921
  1816
wenzelm@10003
  1817
* Isar: renamed some attributes (RS -> THEN, simplify -> simplified,
wenzelm@10003
  1818
rulify -> rule_format, elimify -> elim_format, ...);
paulson@9542
  1819
wenzelm@9941
  1820
* Isar/Provers: intro/elim/dest attributes changed; renamed
wenzelm@9941
  1821
intro/intro!/intro!! flags to intro!/intro/intro? (in most cases, one
wenzelm@9937
  1822
should have to change intro!! to intro? only); replaced "delrule" by
wenzelm@9937
  1823
"rule del";
wenzelm@9437
  1824
wenzelm@9612
  1825
* Isar/HOL: renamed "intrs" to "intros" in inductive definitions;
wenzelm@9612
  1826
wenzelm@9437
  1827
* Provers: strengthened force_tac by using new first_best_tac;
oheimb@9402
  1828
wenzelm@10003
  1829
* LaTeX document preparation: several changes of isabelle.sty (see
wenzelm@10003
  1830
lib/texinputs);
wenzelm@8729
  1831
paulson@8014
  1832
wenzelm@8487
  1833
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@8358
  1834
wenzelm@9198
  1835
* formal comments (text blocks etc.) in new-style theories may now
wenzelm@9753
  1836
contain antiquotations of thm/prop/term/typ/text to be presented
wenzelm@9753
  1837
according to latex print mode; concrete syntax is like this:
wenzelm@9753
  1838
@{term[show_types] "f(x) = a + x"};
wenzelm@9198
  1839
wenzelm@8358
  1840
* isatool mkdir provides easy setup of Isabelle session directories,
wenzelm@8518
  1841
including proper document sources;
wenzelm@8358
  1842
wenzelm@8358
  1843
* generated LaTeX sources are now deleted after successful run
wenzelm@8358
  1844
(isatool document -c); may retain a copy somewhere else via -D option
wenzelm@8358
  1845
of isatool usedir;
wenzelm@8358
  1846
wenzelm@8566
  1847
* isatool usedir -D now lets isatool latex -o sty update the Isabelle
wenzelm@10003
  1848
style files, achieving self-contained LaTeX sources and simplifying
wenzelm@10003
  1849
LaTeX debugging;
wenzelm@8566
  1850
wenzelm@8518
  1851
* old-style theories now produce (crude) LaTeX output as well;
wenzelm@8358
  1852
wenzelm@9057
  1853
* browser info session directories are now self-contained (may be put
wenzelm@9437
  1854
on WWW server seperately); improved graphs of nested sessions; removed
wenzelm@9437
  1855
graph for 'all sessions';
wenzelm@9057
  1856
wenzelm@10003
  1857
* several improvements in isabelle style files; \isabellestyle{it}
wenzelm@10003
  1858
produces fake math mode output; \isamarkupheader is now \section by
wenzelm@10003
  1859
default; see lib/texinputs/isabelle.sty etc.;
wenzelm@9489
  1860
wenzelm@8358
  1861
wenzelm@8184
  1862
*** Isar ***
wenzelm@8184
  1863
wenzelm@10003
  1864
* Isar/Pure: local results and corresponding term bindings are now
wenzelm@10003
  1865
subject to Hindley-Milner polymorphism (similar to ML); this
wenzelm@10003
  1866
accommodates incremental type-inference very nicely;
wenzelm@8283
  1867
wenzelm@10003
  1868
* Isar/Pure: new derived language element 'obtain' supports
wenzelm@10003
  1869
generalized existence reasoning;
wenzelm@8621
  1870
wenzelm@10003
  1871
* Isar/Pure: new calculational elements 'moreover' and 'ultimately'
wenzelm@10003
  1872
support accumulation of results, without applying any rules yet;
wenzelm@10003
  1873
useful to collect intermediate results without explicit name
wenzelm@10003
  1874
references, and for use with transitivity rules with more than 2
wenzelm@10003
  1875
premises;
wenzelm@8184
  1876
wenzelm@10003
  1877
* Isar/Pure: scalable support for case-analysis type proofs: new
wenzelm@10003
  1878
'case' language element refers to local contexts symbolically, as
wenzelm@10003
  1879
produced by certain proof methods; internally, case names are attached
wenzelm@10003
  1880
to theorems as "tags";
wenzelm@8440
  1881
wenzelm@10003
  1882
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'hide' removes declarations from
wenzelm@9330
  1883
class/type/const name spaces;
wenzelm@9330
  1884
wenzelm@10003
  1885
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'defs' supports option "(overloaded)" to
wenzelm@9330
  1886
indicate potential overloading;
wenzelm@9330
  1887
wenzelm@10003
  1888
* Isar/Pure: changed syntax of local blocks from {{ }} to { };
wenzelm@8621
  1889
wenzelm@10003
  1890
* Isar/Pure: syntax of sorts made 'inner', i.e. have to write
wenzelm@10003
  1891
"{a,b,c}" instead of {a,b,c};
wenzelm@9011
  1892
wenzelm@10003
  1893
* Isar/Pure now provides its own version of intro/elim/dest
wenzelm@10003
  1894
attributes; useful for building new logics, but beware of confusion
wenzelm@10003
  1895
with the version in Provers/classical;
wenzelm@9612
  1896
wenzelm@10003
  1897
* Isar/Pure: the local context of (non-atomic) goals is provided via
wenzelm@10003
  1898
case name 'antecedent';
wenzelm@8440
  1899
wenzelm@10003
  1900
* Isar/Pure: removed obsolete 'transfer' attribute (transfer of thms
wenzelm@10003
  1901
to the current context is now done automatically);
wenzelm@9383
  1902
wenzelm@10003
  1903
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'method_setup' provides a simple interface
wenzelm@10003
  1904
for definining proof methods in ML;
wenzelm@9612
  1905
wenzelm@10003
  1906
* Isar/Provers: intro/elim/dest attributes changed; renamed
wenzelm@9941
  1907
intro/intro!/intro!! flags to intro!/intro/intro? (INCOMPATIBILITY, in
wenzelm@9941
  1908
most cases, one should have to change intro!! to intro? only);
wenzelm@9941
  1909
replaced "delrule" by "rule del";
wenzelm@8283
  1910
wenzelm@10003
  1911
* Isar/Provers: new 'hypsubst' method, plain 'subst' method and
wenzelm@10003
  1912
'symmetric' attribute (the latter supercedes [RS sym]);
wenzelm@10003
  1913
wenzelm@10003
  1914
* Isar/Provers: splitter support (via 'split' attribute and 'simp'
wenzelm@10003
  1915
method modifier); 'simp' method: 'only:' modifier removes loopers as
wenzelm@10003
  1916
well (including splits);
wenzelm@10003
  1917
wenzelm@10003
  1918
* Isar/Provers: Simplifier and Classical methods now support all kind
wenzelm@10003
  1919
of modifiers used in the past, including 'cong', 'iff', etc.
wenzelm@10003
  1920
wenzelm@10003
  1921
* Isar/Provers: added 'fastsimp' and 'clarsimp' methods (combination
wenzelm@10003
  1922
of Simplifier and Classical reasoner);
wenzelm@10003
  1923
wenzelm@10003
  1924
* Isar/HOL: new proof method 'cases' and improved version of 'induct'
wenzelm@10003
  1925
now support named cases; major packages (inductive, datatype, primrec,
wenzelm@10003
  1926
recdef) support case names and properly name parameters;
wenzelm@9612
  1927
wenzelm@10003
  1928
* Isar/HOL: new transitivity rules for substitution in inequalities --
wenzelm@10003
  1929
monotonicity conditions are extracted to be proven at end of
wenzelm@10003
  1930
calculations;
wenzelm@10003
  1931
wenzelm@10003
  1932
* Isar/HOL: removed 'case_split' thm binding, should use 'cases' proof
wenzelm@10003
  1933
method anyway;
wenzelm@10003
  1934
wenzelm@10003
  1935
* Isar/HOL: removed old expand_if = split_if; theorems if_splits =
wenzelm@10003
  1936
split_if split_if_asm; datatype package provides theorems foo.splits =
wenzelm@10003
  1937
foo.split foo.split_asm for each datatype;
wenzelm@10003
  1938
wenzelm@10003
  1939
* Isar/HOL: tuned inductive package, rename "intrs" to "intros"
wenzelm@10003
  1940
(potential INCOMPATIBILITY), emulation of mk_cases feature for proof
wenzelm@10003
  1941
scripts: new 'inductive_cases' command and 'ind_cases' method; (Note:
wenzelm@10003
  1942
use "(cases (simplified))" method in proper proof texts);
wenzelm@10003
  1943
wenzelm@10003
  1944
* Isar/HOL: added global 'arith_split' attribute for 'arith' method;
wenzelm@10003
  1945
wenzelm@10003
  1946
* Isar: names of theorems etc. may be natural numbers as well;
wenzelm@10003
  1947
wenzelm@10003
  1948
* Isar: 'pr' command: optional arguments for goals_limit and
wenzelm@9724
  1949
ProofContext.prems_limit; no longer prints theory contexts, but only
wenzelm@9724
  1950
proof states;
wenzelm@8487
  1951
wenzelm@10003
  1952
* Isar: diagnostic commands 'pr', 'thm', 'prop', 'term', 'typ' admit
wenzelm@8518
  1953
additional print modes to be specified; e.g. "pr(latex)" will print
wenzelm@8518
  1954
proof state according to the Isabelle LaTeX style;
wenzelm@8487
  1955
wenzelm@10003
  1956
* Isar: improved support for emulating tactic scripts, including proof
wenzelm@9612
  1957
methods 'rule_tac' etc., 'cut_tac', 'thin_tac', 'subgoal_tac',
wenzelm@9612
  1958
'rename_tac', 'rotate_tac', 'tactic', and 'case_tac' / 'induct_tac'
wenzelm@9612
  1959
(for HOL datatypes);
wenzelm@8534
  1960
wenzelm@10003
  1961
* Isar: simplified (more robust) goal selection of proof methods: 1st
wenzelm@10003
  1962
goal, all goals, or explicit goal specifier (tactic emulation); thus
wenzelm@10003
  1963
'proof method scripts' have to be in depth-first order;
wenzelm@8673
  1964
wenzelm@10003
  1965
* Isar: tuned 'let' syntax: replaced 'as' keyword by 'and';
wenzelm@8729
  1966
wenzelm@10003
  1967
* Isar: removed 'help' command, which hasn't been too helpful anyway;
wenzelm@10003
  1968
should instead use individual commands for printing items
wenzelm@10003
  1969
(print_commands, print_methods etc.);
wenzelm@9224
  1970
wenzelm@10003
  1971
* Isar: added 'nothing' --- the empty list of theorems;

recursive procedures, by David von Oheimb;
wenzelm@10164
  2002
wenzelm@10003
  2003
* HOL/Lambda: converted into new-style theory and document;
paulson@9542
  2004
wenzelm@10003
  2005
* HOL/ex/Multiquote: example of multiple nested quotations and
wenzelm@10003
  2006
anti-quotations -- basically a generalized version of de-Bruijn
wenzelm@10003
  2007
representation; very useful in avoiding lifting of operations;
wenzelm@8848
  2008
wenzelm@9612
  2009
* HOL/record: added general record equality rule to simpset; fixed
wenzelm@9612
  2010

  2011
well; admit "r" as field name;
paulson@9542
  2012

  2013
* HOL: 0 is now overloaded over the new sort "zero", allowing its use with
paulson@8967
  2014
other numeric types and also as the identity of groups, rings, etc.;
paulson@8967
  2015
paulson@8967
  2016
* HOL: new axclass plus_ac0 for addition with the AC-laws and 0 as identity.
paulson@8967
  2017
Types nat and int belong to this axclass;
paulson@8967
  2018
wenzelm@10003
  2019
* HOL: greatly improved simplification involving numerals of type nat, int, real:
paulson@8788
  2020
   (i + #8 + j) = Suc k simplifies to  #7 + (i + j) = k
paulson@8832
  2021
   i*j + k + j*#3*i     simplifies to  #4*(i*j) + k
paulson@8832
  2022
  two terms #m*u and #n*u are replaced by #(m+n)*u
paulson@8832
  2023
    (where #m, #n and u can implicitly be 1; this is simproc combine_numerals)
paulson@8832
  2024
  and the term/formula #m*u+x ~~ #n*u+y simplifies simplifies to #(m-n)+x ~~ y
paulson@8832

paulson@8736

* HOL: meson_tac is available (previously in ex/meson.ML); it is a
wenzelm@10003
  2028
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

wenzelm@8848
  2031
* HOL: new version of "case_tac" subsumes both boolean case split and
wenzelm@8440
  2032
"exhaust_tac" on datatypes; INCOMPATIBILITY: exhaust_tac no longer
wenzelm@8518

exists, may define val exhaust_tac = case_tac for ad-hoc portability;
wenzelm@8440
  2034
wenzelm@8848
  2035
* HOL: simplification no longer dives into case-expressions: only the
wenzelm@10129
  2036
selector expression is simplified, but not the remaining arms; to
wenzelm@10129
  2037
enable full simplification of case-expressions for datatype t, you may
wenzelm@10129
  2038
remove t.weak_case_cong from the simpset, either globally (Delcongs

  2041
* HOL/recdef: the recursion equations generated by 'recdef' for
wenzelm@8848
  2042
function 'f' are now called f.simps instead of f.rules; if all
wenzelm@8848
  2043
termination conditions are proved automatically, these simplification
wenzelm@8848
  2044
rules are added to the simpset, as in primrec; rules may be named
wenzelm@8848
  2045
individually as well, resulting in a separate list of theorems for
wenzelm@8848
  2046
each equation;
wenzelm@8848
  2047
wenzelm@9489
  2048
* HOL/While is a new theory that provides a while-combinator. It
wenzelm@9489
  2049
permits the definition of tail-recursive functions without the
wenzelm@9489
  2050
provision of a termination measure. The latter is necessary once the
wenzelm@9489
  2051
invariant proof rule for while is applied.
nipkow@9457
  2052
wenzelm@10003
  2053

* HOL: new tactic induct_thm_tac: thm -> string -> int -> tactic
nipkow@9746
  2059
induct_tac th "x1 ... xn" expects th to have a conclusion of the form
nipkow@9746

* HOL: theory Sexp now in HOL/Induct examples (it used to be part of
wenzelm@10003
  2065
main HOL, but was unused);
nipkow@8626
  2066
wenzelm@10003
  2067
* HOL: fewer consts declared as global (e.g. have to refer to
wenzelm@10003
  2068
"Lfp.lfp" instead of "lfp" internally; affects ML packages only);
wenzelm@8887
  2069
wenzelm@10003
  2070
* HOL: tuned AST representation of nested pairs, avoiding bogus output
wenzelm@10003
  2071
in case of overlap with user translations (e.g. judgements over
wenzelm@10003
  2072
tuples); (note that the underlying logical represenation is still
wenzelm@10003

  2077
wenzelm@10003

  2079
expressions over nat and int;
paulson@9542
  2080
wenzelm@10003
  2081
* ZF: new treatment of nat to minimize type-checking: all operators
wenzelm@10003
  2082
coerce their operands to a natural number using the function natify,
wenzelm@10003
  2083
making the algebraic laws unconditional;
paulson@9542
  2084
wenzelm@10003
  2085
* ZF: as above, for int: operators coerce their operands to an integer
wenzelm@10003
  2086
using the function intify;
paulson@9542
  2087
wenzelm@10003
  2088
* ZF: the integer library now contains many of the usual laws for the
wenzelm@10003
  2089
orderings, including $<=, and monotonicity laws for $+ and $*;
paulson@9542
  2090
wenzelm@10003
  2091
* ZF: new example ZF/ex/NatSum to demonstrate integer arithmetic
wenzelm@10003
  2092
simplification;
paulson@9388
  2093
wenzelm@10003
  2094
* FOL and ZF: AddIffs now available, giving theorems of the form P<->Q
wenzelm@10003

assumptions; note that auto_tac uses blast_tac internally as well;
wenzelm@10003
  2102
wenzelm@10003
  2103
* Provers: new functions rulify/rulify_no_asm: thm -> thm for turning

explicit make_elim);
wenzelm@9941
  2108
wenzelm@10003
  2109
* Provers: Blast_tac now warns of and ignores "weak elimination rules" e.g.
wenzelm@10003
  2110
  [| inj ?f;          ?f ?x = ?f ?y; ?x = ?y ==> ?W |] ==> ?W
wenzelm@10003

use instead the strong form,
wenzelm@10003
  2112
  [| inj ?f; ~ ?W ==> ?f ?x = ?f ?y; ?x = ?y ==> ?W |] ==> ?W
wenzelm@10003
  2113
in HOL, FOL and ZF the function cla_make_elim will create such rules
wenzelm@10003
  2114
from destruct-rules;

wenzelm@9709
  2128
* system: compression of ML heaps images may now be controlled via -c
wenzelm@9709
  2129
option of isabelle and isatool usedir (currently only observed by
wenzelm@9709
  2130
Poly/ML);
wenzelm@8358
  2131
wenzelm@9981
  2132
* system: isatool installfonts may handle X-Symbol fonts as well (very
wenzelm@9981
  2133
useful for remote X11);
wenzelm@9981
  2134
wenzelm@9709
  2135
* system: provide TAGS file for Isabelle sources;
wenzelm@9052

  2141
timing flag supersedes proof_timing and Toplevel.trace;
wenzelm@8994
  2142
wenzelm@10003
  2143
* ML: new combinators |>> and |>>> for incremental transformations
wenzelm@10003
  2144
with secondary results (e.g. certain theory extensions):
wenzelm@10003
  2145
wenzelm@9330
  2146
* ML: PureThy.add_defs gets additional argument to indicate potential

wenzelm@6386
  2175
wenzelm@6269
  2176
* ZF: The con_defs part of an inductive definition may no longer refer

nipkow@6057

wenzelm@6269

* HOL, ZF: the function mk_cases, generated by the inductive
wenzelm@6269
  2180
definition package, has lost an argument.  To simplify its result, it
wenzelm@6269
  2181
uses the default simpset instead of a supplied list of theorems.
paulson@6141

wenzelm@8729
  2186
        setSSolver addSSolver setSolver addSolver
nipkow@7619
  2187
is now  simpset * solver -> simpset  where `solver' is a new abstract type
nipkow@7619
  2188
for packaging solvers. A solver is created via
wenzelm@8729
  2189
        mk_solver: string -> (thm list -> int -> tactic) -> solver
nipkow@7619

wenzelm@7986
  2222

wenzelm@7215
  2223
wenzelm@7791

* theory loader rewritten from scratch (may not be fully
wenzelm@6449
  2230
bug-compatible); old loadpath variable has been replaced by show_path,
wenzelm@6671
  2231
add_path, del_path, reset_path functions; new operations such as

  2232
update_thy, touch_thy, remove_thy, use/update_thy_only (see also
wenzelm@7593
  2233

option -p DIR installs standalone binaries;
wenzelm@7215
  2237
wenzelm@7215
  2238
* added ML_PLATFORM setting (useful for cross-platform installations);
wenzelm@7215
  2239
more robust handling of platform specific ML images for SML/NJ;
wenzelm@7215
  2240
wenzelm@7886
  2241
* the settings environment is now statically scoped, i.e. it is never

wenzelm@5973
  2249
wenzelm@6269
  2250

  2287
wenzelm@6343
  2288
* There are now decision procedures for linear arithmetic over nat and
wenzelm@6343
  2289
int:
nipkow@6131
  2290
wenzelm@6343
  2291
1. arith_tac copes with arbitrary formulae involving `=', `<', `<=',
wenzelm@6343
  2292
`+', `-', `Suc', `min', `max' and numerical constants; other subterms
wenzelm@6343
  2293
are treated as atomic; subformulae not involving type `nat' or `int'
wenzelm@6343
  2294
are ignored; quantified subformulae are ignored unless they are
wenzelm@6343
  2295
positive universal or negative existential. The tactic has to be
wenzelm@6343
  2296
invoked by hand and can be a little bit slow. In particular, the
wenzelm@6343
  2297
running time is exponential in the number of occurrences of `min' and
wenzelm@6343
  2298
`max', and `-' on `nat'.
nipkow@6131
  2299
wenzelm@6343
  2300
2. fast_arith_tac is a cut-down version of arith_tac: it only takes
wenzelm@6343
  2301
(negated) (in)equalities among the premises and the conclusion into
wenzelm@6343
  2302
account (i.e. no compound formulae) and does not know about `min' and
wenzelm@6343
  2303
`max', and `-' on `nat'. It is fast and is used automatically by the
wenzelm@6343
  2304
simplifier.
nipkow@6131
  2305
wenzelm@6343
  2306
NB: At the moment, these decision procedures do not cope with mixed
wenzelm@6343
  2307
nat/int formulae where the two parts interact, such as `m < n ==>
wenzelm@6343
  2308
int(m) < int(n)'.
oheimb@6028
  2309
wenzelm@7215
  2310
* HOL/Numeral provides a generic theory of numerals (encoded
wenzelm@7313
  2311
efficiently as bit strings); setup for types nat/int/real is in place;
wenzelm@7215
  2312
INCOMPATIBILITY: since numeral syntax is now polymorphic, rather than
wenzelm@7215
  2313

wenzelm@7215
  2314

wenzelm@7215
  2315
wenzelm@7215

wenzelm@7215
  2319

paulson@6922
  2321
paulson@7287
  2322
* An interface to the Stanford Validity Checker (SVC) is available through the
paulson@7287
  2323
tactic svc_tac.  Propositional tautologies and theorems of linear arithmetic
paulson@7287
  2324
are proved automatically.  SVC must be installed separately, and its results
paulson@7287
  2325
must be TAKEN ON TRUST (Isabelle does not check the proofs, but tags any
paulson@7287
  2326
invocation of the underlying oracle).  For SVC see

wenzelm@6278

  2371
    "While B C s = (if B s then While B C (C s) else s)"

  2459
now of type real instead of int;
wenzelm@6343
  2460
wenzelm@7196
  2461
* theory loader actions may be traced via new ThyInfo.add_hook
wenzelm@7196
  2462
interface (see src/Pure/Thy/thy_info.ML); example application: keep
wenzelm@7196
  2463
your own database of information attached to *whole* theories -- as
wenzelm@7196
  2464
opposed to intra-theory data slots offered via TheoryDataFun;
wenzelm@7196
  2465
wenzelm@7647
  2466
* proper handling of dangling sort hypotheses (at last!);
wenzelm@7647
  2467
Thm.strip_shyps and Drule.strip_shyps_warning take care of removing
wenzelm@7647
  2468
extra sort hypotheses that can be witnessed from the type signature;
wenzelm@7986
  2469
the force_strip_shyps flag is gone, any remaining shyps are simply
wenzelm@7986
  2470
left in the theorem (with a warning issued by strip_shyps_warning);

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES (see below for more details) ***
wenzelm@4842
  2478
wenzelm@5726
  2479
* several changes of automated proof tools;
wenzelm@5373
  2480
wenzelm@5726
  2481
* HOL: major changes to the inductive and datatype packages, including
wenzelm@5726
  2482
some minor incompatibilities of theory syntax;
berghofe@5214
  2483
wenzelm@5726
  2484
* HOL: renamed r^-1 to 'converse' from 'inverse'; 'inj_onto' is now
wenzelm@5217
  2485
called `inj_on';
paulson@5160
  2486
nipkow@5275
  2487
* HOL: removed duplicate thms in Arith:
nipkow@5275
  2488
  less_imp_add_less  should be replaced by  trans_less_add1
nipkow@5275
  2489
  le_imp_add_le      should be replaced by  trans_le_add1
paulson@5160
  2490
wenzelm@5726
  2491
* HOL: unary minus is now overloaded (new type constraints may be
wenzelm@5726
  2492
required);
paulson@5490
  2493
wenzelm@5726
  2494
* HOL and ZF: unary minus for integers is now #- instead of #~.  In
wenzelm@5726
  2495
ZF, expressions such as n#-1 must be changed to n#- 1, since #-1 is
wenzelm@5726
  2496
now taken as an integer constant.
paulson@5541
  2497
wenzelm@5726
  2498
* Pure: ML function 'theory_of' renamed to 'theory';
wenzelm@5397

wenzelm@5127
  2501
*** Proof tools ***
nipkow@4880
  2502
nipkow@5657
  2503
* Simplifier:
nipkow@5657
  2504
  1. Asm_full_simp_tac is now more aggressive.
nipkow@5657
  2505
     1. It will sometimes reorient premises if that increases their power to
nipkow@5657
  2506
        simplify.
nipkow@5657
  2507
     2. It does no longer proceed strictly from left to right but may also
nipkow@5657
  2508
        rotate premises to achieve further simplification.
nipkow@5657
  2509
     For compatibility reasons there is now Asm_lr_simp_tac which is like the
nipkow@5657
  2510
     old Asm_full_simp_tac in that it does not rotate premises.
nipkow@5657
  2511
  2. The simplifier now knows a little bit about nat-arithmetic.
nipkow@4880
  2512
wenzelm@5127
  2513
* Classical reasoner: wrapper mechanism for the classical reasoner now
wenzelm@5127
  2514
allows for selected deletion of wrappers, by introduction of names for
wenzelm@5127
  2515
wrapper functionals.  This implies that addbefore, addSbefore,
wenzelm@5127
  2516
addaltern, and addSaltern now take a pair (name, tactic) as argument,
wenzelm@5127
  2517
and that adding two tactics with the same name overwrites the first
wenzelm@5127
  2518
one (emitting a warning).
oheimb@4824
  2519
  type wrapper = (int -> tactic) -> (int -> tactic)
oheimb@4649
  2520
  setWrapper, setSWrapper, compWrapper and compSWrapper are replaced by
oheimb@4824
  2521
  addWrapper, addSWrapper: claset * (string * wrapper) -> claset
oheimb@4824
  2522
  delWrapper, delSWrapper: claset *  string            -> claset
oheimb@4649
  2523
  getWrapper is renamed to appWrappers, getSWrapper to appSWrappers;
oheimb@4649
  2524
wenzelm@5705
  2525
* Classical reasoner: addbefore/addSbefore now have APPEND/ORELSE
wenzelm@5726
  2526
semantics; addbefore now affects only the unsafe part of step_tac
wenzelm@5726
  2527
etc.; this affects addss/auto_tac/force_tac, so EXISTING PROOFS MAY
wenzelm@5726
  2528
FAIL, but proofs should be fixable easily, e.g. by replacing Auto_tac
wenzelm@5726
  2529
by Force_tac;
oheimb@5524
  2530
wenzelm@5726
  2531
* Classical reasoner: setwrapper to setWrapper and compwrapper to
wenzelm@5726
  2532
compWrapper; added safe wrapper (and access functions for it);
oheimb@5524
  2533
wenzelm@5127
  2534
* HOL/split_all_tac is now much faster and fails if there is nothing
wenzelm@5726
  2535
to split.  Some EXISTING PROOFS MAY REQUIRE ADAPTION because the order
wenzelm@5726
  2536
and the names of the automatically generated variables have changed.
wenzelm@5726
  2537
split_all_tac has moved within claset() from unsafe wrappers to safe
wenzelm@5726
  2538
wrappers, which means that !!-bound variables are split much more
wenzelm@5726
  2539
aggressively, and safe_tac and clarify_tac now split such variables.
wenzelm@5726
  2540
If this splitting is not appropriate, use delSWrapper "split_all_tac".
wenzelm@5726
  2541
Note: the same holds for record_split_tac, which does the job of
wenzelm@5726
  2542
split_all_tac for record fields.
wenzelm@5127
  2543
wenzelm@5726
  2544
* HOL/Simplifier: Rewrite rules for case distinctions can now be added
wenzelm@5726
  2545
permanently to the default simpset using Addsplits just like
wenzelm@5726
  2546
Addsimps. They can be removed via Delsplits just like
wenzelm@5726
  2547
Delsimps. Lower-case versions are also available.
wenzelm@5127
  2548
wenzelm@5726
  2549
* HOL/Simplifier: The rule split_if is now part of the default
wenzelm@5726
  2550
simpset. This means that the simplifier will eliminate all occurrences
wenzelm@5726
  2551
of if-then-else in the conclusion of a goal. To prevent this, you can
wenzelm@5726
  2552
either remove split_if completely from the default simpset by
wenzelm@5726
  2553
`Delsplits [split_if]' or remove it in a specific call of the
wenzelm@5726
  2554
simplifier using `... delsplits [split_if]'.  You can also add/delete
wenzelm@5726
  2555
other case splitting rules to/from the default simpset: every datatype
wenzelm@5726
  2556
generates suitable rules `split_t_case' and `split_t_case_asm' (where
wenzelm@5726
  2557
t is the name of the datatype).
wenzelm@5127
  2558
wenzelm@5726
  2559
* Classical reasoner / Simplifier combination: new force_tac (and
wenzelm@5127
  2560
derivatives Force_tac, force) combines rewriting and classical
wenzelm@5127
  2561
reasoning (and whatever other tools) similarly to auto_tac, but is
wenzelm@5726
  2562
aimed to solve the given subgoal completely.
wenzelm@5127

wenzelm@5127
  2564
wenzelm@5127
  2565
*** General ***
wenzelm@5127
  2566
wenzelm@5217
  2567
* new top-level commands `Goal' and `Goalw' that improve upon `goal'
wenzelm@5127
  2568
and `goalw': the theory is no longer needed as an explicit argument -
wenzelm@5127
  2569
the current theory context is used; assumptions are no longer returned
wenzelm@5127
  2570
at the ML-level unless one of them starts with ==> or !!; it is
wenzelm@5217
  2571
recommended to convert to these new commands using isatool fixgoal
wenzelm@5217
  2572
(backup your sources first!);
wenzelm@4842
  2573
wenzelm@5217
  2574
* new top-level commands 'thm' and 'thms' for retrieving theorems from
wenzelm@5207
  2575
the current theory context, and 'theory' to lookup stored theories;
paulson@4806
  2576
paulson@5722
  2577
* new theory section 'locale' for declaring constants, assumptions and
paulson@5722
  2578
definitions that have local scope;
