    10
ease use and installation of the complete Isabelle working

  * Isabelle/Isar improvements (Markus Wenzel)
wenzelm@10161
    18
      o Support of tactic-emulation scripts for easy porting of legacy ML

    19
        scripts (see also the HOL/Lambda example).
wenzelm@10161
    20
      o Better support for scalable verification tasks (manage large
wenzelm@10161
    21
        contexts in induction, generalized existence reasoning etc.)
wenzelm@10161
    22
      o Hindley-Milner polymorphism for proof texts.
wenzelm@10161
    23
      o More robust document preparation, better LaTeX output due to
wenzelm@10161
    24
        fake math-mode.
wenzelm@10166
    25
      o Extended "Isabelle/Isar Reference Manual".
