New in this Isabelle version

wenzelm@17754

*** General ***
wenzelm@17754
     8
wenzelm@22826
     9
* More uniform information about legacy features, notably a
wenzelm@22826
    10
warning/error of "Legacy feature: ...", depending on the state of the
wenzelm@22826
    11
tolerate_legacy_features flag (default true).
wenzelm@22826
    12
wenzelm@17918
    13
* Theory syntax: the header format ``theory A = B + C:'' has been
wenzelm@17918
    14
discontinued in favour of ``theory A imports B C begin''.  Use isatool
wenzelm@17918
    15
fixheaders to convert existing theory files.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17918
    16
wenzelm@17918
    17
* Theory syntax: the old non-Isar theory file format has been
wenzelm@17918
    18
discontinued altogether.  Note that ML proof scripts may still be used
wenzelm@17918
    19
with Isar theories; migration is usually quite simple with the ML
wenzelm@17918
    20
function use_legacy_bindings.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17918
    21
wenzelm@22871
    22
* Theory syntax: some popular names (e.g. 'class', 'declaration',
wenzelm@22871
    23
'fun', 'help', 'if') are now keywords.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use double
wenzelm@22871
    24
quotes.
wenzelm@19814
    25
wenzelm@17981
    26
* Legacy goal package: reduced interface to the bare minimum required
wenzelm@17981
    27
to keep existing proof scripts running.  Most other user-level
wenzelm@17981
    28
functions are now part of the OldGoals structure, which is *not* open
wenzelm@17981
    29
by default (consider isatool expandshort before open OldGoals).
wenzelm@17981
    30
Removed top_sg, prin, printyp, pprint_term/typ altogether, because
wenzelm@17981
    31
these tend to cause confusion about the actual goal (!) context being
wenzelm@17981
    32
used here, which is not necessarily the same as the_context().
wenzelm@17918
    33
wenzelm@17754
    34
* Command 'find_theorems': support "*" wildcard in "name:" criterion.
wenzelm@17754
    35
wenzelm@20370
    36
* The ``prems limit'' option (cf. ProofContext.prems_limit) is now -1
wenzelm@20370
    37
by default, which means that "prems" (and also "fixed variables") are
wenzelm@20370
    38
suppressed from proof state output.  Note that the ProofGeneral
wenzelm@20370
    39
settings mechanism allows to change and save options persistently, but
wenzelm@20370
    40
older versions of Isabelle will fail to start up if a negative prems
wenzelm@20370
    41
limit is imposed.
wenzelm@20370
    42
wenzelm@21308
    43
* Local theory targets may be specified by non-nested blocks of
wenzelm@21308
    44
``context/locale/class ... begin'' followed by ``end''.  The body may
wenzelm@21308
    45
contain definitions, theorems etc., including any derived mechanism
wenzelm@21308
    46
that has been implemented on top of these primitives.  This concept
wenzelm@21308
    47
generalizes the existing ``theorem (in ...)'' towards more versatility
wenzelm@21308
    48
and scalability.
wenzelm@21308
    49
wenzelm@21960
    50
* Proof General interface: proper undo of final 'end' command;
wenzelm@21960
    51
discontinued Isabelle/classic mode (ML proof scripts).
wenzelm@21960
    52
wenzelm@17754
    53
wenzelm@17865
    54
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@17865
    55
wenzelm@21717
    56
* Added antiquotation @{theory name} which prints the given name,
wenzelm@21717
    57
after checking that it refers to a valid ancestor theory in the
wenzelm@21717
    58
current context.
haftmann@21339
    59
wenzelm@17869
    60
* Added antiquotations @{ML_type text} and @{ML_struct text} which
wenzelm@17869
    61
check the given source text as ML type/structure, printing verbatim.
wenzelm@17865
    62
wenzelm@21717
    63
* Added antiquotation @{abbrev "c args"} which prints the abbreviation
wenzelm@21717
    64
"c args == rhs" given in the current context.  (Any number of
wenzelm@21735
    65
arguments may be given on the LHS.)
wenzelm@21717
    66
wenzelm@21717
    67
wenzelm@17865
    68
wenzelm@17779
    69
*** Pure ***
wenzelm@17779
    70
haftmann@22921
    71
* code generator: consts in 'consts_code' Isar commands are now referred
haftmann@22921
    72
  to by usual term syntax (including optional type annotations).
haftmann@22921
    73
haftmann@22735
    74
* code generator: 
haftmann@22921
    75
  - Isar 'definition's, 'constdef's and primitive instance definitions are added
haftmann@22921
    76
    explicitly to the table of defining equations
haftmann@22754
    77
  - primitive definitions are not used as defining equations by default any longer
haftmann@22735
    78
  - defining equations are now definitly restricted to meta "==" and object
haftmann@22735
    79
        equality "="
haftmann@22735
    80
  - HOL theories have been adopted accordingly
haftmann@22735
    81
wenzelm@20807
    82
* class_package.ML offers a combination of axclasses and locales to
haftmann@22921
    83
achieve Haskell-like type classes in Isabelle.  See
wenzelm@20807
    84
HOL/ex/Classpackage.thy for examples.
wenzelm@20807
    85
wenzelm@20807
    86
* Yet another code generator framework allows to generate executable
haftmann@22921
    87
code for ML and Haskell (including "class"es).  A short usage sketch:
haftmann@20188
    88
haftmann@20188
    89
    internal compilation:
haftmann@21545
    90
        code_gen <list of constants (term syntax)> (SML #)
haftmann@20453
    91
    writing SML code to a file:
haftmann@20453
    92
        code_gen <list of constants (term syntax)> (SML <filename>)
haftmann@22735
    93
    writing OCaml code to a file:
haftmann@22735
    94
        code_gen <list of constants (term syntax)> (OCaml <filename>)
haftmann@20188
    95
    writing Haskell code to a bunch of files:
haftmann@20453
    96
        code_gen <list of constants (term syntax)> (Haskell <filename>)
haftmann@20453
    97
haftmann@20453
    98
Reasonable default setup of framework in HOL/Main.
haftmann@20453
    99
haftmann@20453
   100
Theorem attributs for selecting and transforming function equations theorems:
haftmann@20453
   101
haftmann@22845
   102
    [code fun]:        select a theorem as function equation for a specific constant
haftmann@22845
   103
    [code fun del]:    deselect a theorem as function equation for a specific constant
haftmann@22845
   104
    [code inline]:     select an equation theorem for unfolding (inlining) in place
haftmann@22845
   105
    [code inline del]: deselect an equation theorem for unfolding (inlining) in place
haftmann@20453
   106
haftmann@22735
   107
User-defined serializations (target in {SML, OCaml, Haskell}):
haftmann@20453
   108
haftmann@20453
   109
    code_const <and-list of constants (term syntax)>
haftmann@20453
   110
      {(target) <and-list of const target syntax>}+
haftmann@20453
   111
haftmann@20453
   112
    code_type <and-list of type constructors>
haftmann@20453
   113
      {(target) <and-list of type target syntax>}+
haftmann@20453
   114
haftmann@20453
   115
    code_instance <and-list of instances>
haftmann@20453
   116
      {(target)}+
haftmann@20453
   117
        where instance ::= <type constructor> :: <class>
haftmann@20453
   118
haftmann@20453
   119
    code_class <and_list of classes>
haftmann@20453
   120
      {(target) <and-list of class target syntax>}+
haftmann@20453
   121
        where class target syntax ::= <class name> {where {<classop> == <target syntax>}+}?
haftmann@20453
   122
haftmann@22735
   123
code_instance and code_class only apply to target Haskell.
haftmann@22735
   124
haftmann@22735
   125
See HOL theories and HOL/ex/Codegenerator*.thy for usage examples.
haftmann@22735
   126
Doc/Isar/Advanced/Codegen/ provides a tutorial.
haftmann@20188
   127
wenzelm@19254
   128
* Command 'no_translations' removes translation rules from theory
wenzelm@19254
   129
syntax.
wenzelm@19254
   130
wenzelm@19625
   131
* Overloaded definitions are now actually checked for acyclic
wenzelm@19714
   132
dependencies.  The overloading scheme is slightly more general than
wenzelm@19714
   133
that of Haskell98, although Isabelle does not demand an exact
wenzelm@19714
   134
correspondence to type class and instance declarations.
wenzelm@19714
   135
INCOMPATIBILITY, use ``defs (unchecked overloaded)'' to admit more
wenzelm@19714
   136
exotic versions of overloading -- at the discretion of the user!
wenzelm@19711
   137
wenzelm@19711
   138
Polymorphic constants are represented via type arguments, i.e. the
wenzelm@19711
   139
instantiation that matches an instance against the most general
wenzelm@19711
   140
declaration given in the signature.  For example, with the declaration
wenzelm@19711
   141
c :: 'a => 'a => 'a, an instance c :: nat => nat => nat is represented
wenzelm@19711
   142
as c(nat).  Overloading is essentially simultaneous structural
wenzelm@19711
   143
recursion over such type arguments.  Incomplete specification patterns
wenzelm@19714
   144
impose global constraints on all occurrences, e.g. c('a * 'a) on the
wenzelm@19715
   145
LHS means that more general c('a * 'b) will be disallowed on any RHS.
wenzelm@19714
   146
Command 'print_theory' outputs the normalized system of recursive
wenzelm@19714
   147
equations, see section "definitions".
wenzelm@19625
   148
wenzelm@17865
   149
* Isar: improper proof element 'guess' is like 'obtain', but derives
wenzelm@17865
   150
the obtained context from the course of reasoning!  For example:
wenzelm@17865
   151
wenzelm@17865
   152
  assume "EX x y. A x & B y"   -- "any previous fact"
wenzelm@17865
   153
  then guess x and y by clarify
wenzelm@17865
   154
wenzelm@17865
   155
This technique is potentially adventurous, depending on the facts and
wenzelm@17865
   156
proof tools being involved here.
wenzelm@17865
   157
wenzelm@18020
   158
* Isar: known facts from the proof context may be specified as literal
wenzelm@18020
   159
propositions, using ASCII back-quote syntax.  This works wherever
wenzelm@18020
   160
named facts used to be allowed so far, in proof commands, proof
wenzelm@18020
   161
methods, attributes etc.  Literal facts are retrieved from the context
wenzelm@18020
   162
according to unification of type and term parameters.  For example,
wenzelm@18020
   163
provided that "A" and "A ==> B" and "!!x. P x ==> Q x" are known
wenzelm@18020
   164
theorems in the current context, then these are valid literal facts:
wenzelm@18020
   165
`A` and `A ==> B` and `!!x. P x ==> Q x" as well as `P a ==> Q a` etc.
wenzelm@18020
   166
wenzelm@18020
   167
There is also a proof method "fact" which does the same composition
wenzelm@18044
   168
for explicit goal states, e.g. the following proof texts coincide with
wenzelm@18044
   169
certain special cases of literal facts:
wenzelm@18020
   170
wenzelm@18020
   171
  have "A" by fact                 ==  note `A`
wenzelm@18020
   172
  have "A ==> B" by fact           ==  note `A ==> B`
wenzelm@18020
   173
  have "!!x. P x ==> Q x" by fact  ==  note `!!x. P x ==> Q x`
wenzelm@18020
   174
  have "P a ==> Q a" by fact       ==  note `P a ==> Q a`
wenzelm@18020
   175
wenzelm@20118
   176
* Isar: ":" (colon) is no longer a symbolic identifier character in
wenzelm@20118
   177
outer syntax.  Thus symbolic identifiers may be used without
wenzelm@20118
   178
additional white space in declarations like this: ``assume *: A''.
wenzelm@20118
   179
wenzelm@20013
   180
* Isar: 'print_facts' prints all local facts of the current context,
wenzelm@20013
   181
both named and unnamed ones.
wenzelm@20013
   182
wenzelm@18308
   183
* Isar: 'def' now admits simultaneous definitions, e.g.:
wenzelm@18308
   184
wenzelm@18308
   185
  def x == "t" and y == "u"
wenzelm@18308
   186
wenzelm@18540
   187
* Isar: added command 'unfolding', which is structurally similar to
wenzelm@18540
   188
'using', but affects both the goal state and facts by unfolding given
wenzelm@18815
   189
rewrite rules.  Thus many occurrences of the 'unfold' method or
wenzelm@18540
   190
'unfolded' attribute may be replaced by first-class proof text.
wenzelm@18540
   191
wenzelm@18815
   192
* Isar: methods 'unfold' / 'fold', attributes 'unfolded' / 'folded',
wenzelm@18815
   193
and command 'unfolding' now all support object-level equalities
wenzelm@18815
   194
(potentially conditional).  The underlying notion of rewrite rule is
wenzelm@18815
   195
analogous to the 'rule_format' attribute, but *not* that of the
wenzelm@18815
   196
Simplifier (which is usually more generous).
wenzelm@18815
   197
wenzelm@19220
   198
* Isar: the goal restriction operator [N] (default N = 1) evaluates a
wenzelm@19220
   199
method expression within a sandbox consisting of the first N
wenzelm@19240
   200
sub-goals, which need to exist.  For example, ``simp_all [3]''
wenzelm@19240
   201
simplifies the first three sub-goals, while (rule foo, simp_all)[]
wenzelm@19240
   202
simplifies all new goals that emerge from applying rule foo to the
wenzelm@19240
   203
originally first one.
wenzelm@19220
   204
wenzelm@19814
   205
* Isar: schematic goals are no longer restricted to higher-order
wenzelm@19814
   206
patterns; e.g. ``lemma "?P(?x)" by (rule TrueI)'' now works as
wenzelm@19814
   207
expected.
wenzelm@19814
   208
wenzelm@18901
   209
* Isar: the conclusion of a long theorem statement is now either
wenzelm@18901
   210
'shows' (a simultaneous conjunction, as before), or 'obtains'
wenzelm@18901
   211
(essentially a disjunction of cases with local parameters and
wenzelm@18901
   212
assumptions).  The latter allows to express general elimination rules
wenzelm@18910
   213
adequately; in this notation common elimination rules look like this:
wenzelm@18901
   214
wenzelm@18901
   215
  lemma exE:    -- "EX x. P x ==> (!!x. P x ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
   216
    assumes "EX x. P x"
wenzelm@18901
   217
    obtains x where "P x"
wenzelm@18901
   218
wenzelm@18901
   219
  lemma conjE:  -- "A & B ==> (A ==> B ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
   220
    assumes "A & B"
wenzelm@18901
   221
    obtains A and B
wenzelm@18901
   222
wenzelm@18901
   223
  lemma disjE:  -- "A | B ==> (A ==> thesis) ==> (B ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
   224
    assumes "A | B"
wenzelm@18901
   225
    obtains
wenzelm@18901
   226
      A
wenzelm@18901
   227
    | B
wenzelm@18901
   228
wenzelm@18910
   229
The subsequent classical rules even refer to the formal "thesis"
wenzelm@18901
   230
explicitly:
wenzelm@18901
   231
wenzelm@18901
   232
  lemma classical:     -- "(~ thesis ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
   233
    obtains "~ thesis"
wenzelm@18901
   234
wenzelm@18910
   235
  lemma Peirce's_Law:  -- "((thesis ==> something) ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18910
   236
    obtains "thesis ==> something"
wenzelm@18901
   237
wenzelm@18901
   238
The actual proof of an 'obtains' statement is analogous to that of the
wenzelm@18910
   239
Isar proof element 'obtain', only that there may be several cases.
wenzelm@18910
   240
Optional case names may be specified in parentheses; these will be
wenzelm@18910
   241
available both in the present proof and as annotations in the
wenzelm@18910
   242
resulting rule, for later use with the 'cases' method (cf. attribute
wenzelm@18910
   243
case_names).
wenzelm@18901
   244
wenzelm@21447
   245
* Isar: the assumptions of a long theorem statement are available as
wenzelm@21447
   246
"assms" fact in the proof context.  This is more appropriate than the
wenzelm@21447
   247
(historical) "prems", which refers to all assumptions of the current
wenzelm@21447
   248
context, including those from the target locale, proof body etc.
wenzelm@21447
   249
wenzelm@19263
   250
* Isar: 'print_statement' prints theorems from the current theory or
wenzelm@19263
   251
proof context in long statement form, according to the syntax of a
wenzelm@19263
   252
top-level lemma.
wenzelm@19263
   253
wenzelm@18901
   254
* Isar: 'obtain' takes an optional case name for the local context
wenzelm@18901
   255
introduction rule (default "that").
wenzelm@18901
   256
wenzelm@19587
   257
* Isar: removed obsolete 'concl is' patterns.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use
wenzelm@19587
   258
explicit (is "_ ==> ?foo") in the rare cases where this still happens
wenzelm@19587
   259
to occur.
wenzelm@19587
   260
wenzelm@19682
   261
* Pure: syntax "CONST name" produces a fully internalized constant
wenzelm@19682
   262
according to the current context.  This is particularly useful for
wenzelm@19682
   263
syntax translations that should refer to internal constant
wenzelm@19682
   264
representations independently of name spaces.
wenzelm@19682
   265
wenzelm@21537
   266
* Pure: syntax constant for foo (binder "FOO ") is called "foo_binder"
wenzelm@21537
   267
instead of "FOO ". This allows multiple binder declarations to coexist
wenzelm@21537
   268
in the same context.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@21537
   269
wenzelm@21209
   270
* Isar/locales: 'notation' provides a robust interface to the 'syntax'
wenzelm@21209
   271
primitive that also works in a locale context (both for constants and
wenzelm@21209
   272
fixed variables).  Type declaration and internal syntactic
wenzelm@21209
   273
representation of given constants retrieved from the context.
wenzelm@19682
   274
wenzelm@19665
   275
* Isar/locales: new derived specification elements 'axiomatization',
wenzelm@19665
   276
'definition', 'abbreviation', which support type-inference, admit
wenzelm@19083
   277
object-level specifications (equality, equivalence).  See also the
wenzelm@19083
   278
isar-ref manual.  Examples:
wenzelm@19081
   279
wenzelm@19665
   280
  axiomatization
wenzelm@21595
   281
    eq  (infix "===" 50) where
wenzelm@21595
   282
    eq_refl: "x === x" and eq_subst: "x === y ==> P x ==> P y"
wenzelm@21595
   283
wenzelm@21595
   284
  definition "f x y = x + y + 1"
wenzelm@21595
   285
  definition g where "g x = f x x"
wenzelm@19081
   286
wenzelm@19363
   287
  abbreviation
wenzelm@21595
   288
    neq  (infix "=!=" 50) where
wenzelm@19363
   289
    "x =!= y == ~ (x === y)"
wenzelm@19081
   290
wenzelm@19083
   291
These specifications may be also used in a locale context.  Then the
wenzelm@19083
   292
constants being introduced depend on certain fixed parameters, and the
wenzelm@19083
   293
constant name is qualified by the locale base name.  An internal
wenzelm@19083
   294
abbreviation takes care for convenient input and output, making the
wenzelm@19088
   295
parameters implicit and using the original short name.  See also
wenzelm@19083
   296
HOL/ex/Abstract_NAT.thy for an example of deriving polymorphic
wenzelm@19083
   297
entities from a monomorphic theory.
wenzelm@19083
   298
wenzelm@19083
   299
Presently, abbreviations are only available 'in' a target locale, but
wenzelm@19363
   300
not inherited by general import expressions.  Also note that
wenzelm@19363
   301
'abbreviation' may be used as a type-safe replacement for 'syntax' +
wenzelm@19363
   302
'translations' in common applications.
wenzelm@19084
   303
wenzelm@19682
   304
Concrete syntax is attached to specified constants in internal form,
wenzelm@19682
   305
independently of name spaces.  The parse tree representation is
wenzelm@21209
   306
slightly different -- use 'notation' instead of raw 'syntax', and
wenzelm@19682
   307
'translations' with explicit "CONST" markup to accommodate this.
wenzelm@19665
   308
wenzelm@21735
   309
* Pure: command 'print_abbrevs' prints all constant abbreviations of
wenzelm@21735
   310
the current context.  Print mode "no_abbrevs" prevents inversion of
wenzelm@21735
   311
abbreviations on output.
wenzelm@21735

ballarin@19783
   313
* Isar/locales: improved parameter handling:
ballarin@19783
   314
- use of locales "var" and "struct" no longer necessary;
ballarin@19783
   315
- parameter renamings are no longer required to be injective.
ballarin@19783
   316
  This enables, for example, to define a locale for endomorphisms thus:
ballarin@19783
   317
  locale endom = homom mult mult h.
ballarin@19783
   318
ballarin@19931
   319
* Isar/locales: changed the way locales with predicates are defined.
ballarin@19931
   320
Instead of accumulating the specification, the imported expression is
wenzelm@22126
   321
now an interpretation.  INCOMPATIBILITY: different normal form of
wenzelm@22126
   322
locale expressions.  In particular, in interpretations of locales with
wenzelm@22126
   323
predicates, goals repesenting already interpreted fragments are not
wenzelm@22126
   324
removed automatically.  Use methods `intro_locales' and
wenzelm@22126
   325
`unfold_locales'; see below.
wenzelm@22126
   326
wenzelm@22126
   327
* Isar/locales: new methods `intro_locales' and `unfold_locales'
wenzelm@22126
   328
provide backward reasoning on locales predicates.  The methods are
wenzelm@22126
   329
aware of interpretations and discharge corresponding goals.
wenzelm@22126
   330
`intro_locales' is less aggressive then `unfold_locales' and does not
wenzelm@22126
   331
unfold predicates to assumptions.
ballarin@19931
   332
ballarin@19931
   333
* Isar/locales: the order in which locale fragments are accumulated
wenzelm@22126
   334
has changed.  This enables to override declarations from fragments due
wenzelm@22126
   335
to interpretations -- for example, unwanted simp rules.
ballarin@19931
   336
wenzelm@18233
   337
* Provers/induct: improved internal context management to support
wenzelm@18233
   338
local fixes and defines on-the-fly.  Thus explicit meta-level
wenzelm@18233
   339
connectives !! and ==> are rarely required anymore in inductive goals
wenzelm@18233
   340
(using object-logic connectives for this purpose has been long
wenzelm@18233
   341
obsolete anyway).  The subsequent proof patterns illustrate advanced
wenzelm@18233
   342
techniques of natural induction; general datatypes and inductive sets
wenzelm@18267
   343
work analogously (see also src/HOL/Lambda for realistic examples).

(3) This is how to perform existential reasoning ('obtains' or

Here the 'arbitrary: thesis' specification essentially modifies the
wenzelm@20503
   398
scope of the formal thesis parameter, in order to the get the whole
wenzelm@18267
   399
existence statement through the induction as expected.
wenzelm@18233
   400
wenzelm@18506
   401
* Provers/induct: mutual induction rules are now specified as a list
wenzelm@18506
   402
of rule sharing the same induction cases.  HOL packages usually
wenzelm@18506
   403
provide foo_bar.inducts for mutually defined items foo and bar
wenzelm@18506
   404
(e.g. inductive sets or datatypes).  INCOMPATIBILITY, users need to
wenzelm@18506
   405
specify mutual induction rules differently, i.e. like this:
wenzelm@18506
   406
wenzelm@18506
   407
  (induct rule: foo_bar.inducts)
wenzelm@18506
   408
  (induct set: foo bar)
wenzelm@18506
   409
  (induct type: foo bar)
wenzelm@18506
   410
wenzelm@18506
   411
The ML function ProjectRule.projections turns old-style rules into the
wenzelm@18506
   412
new format.
wenzelm@18506
   413
wenzelm@18506
   414
* Provers/induct: improved handling of simultaneous goals.  Instead of
wenzelm@18506
   415
introducing object-level conjunction, the statement is now split into
wenzelm@18506
   416
several conclusions, while the corresponding symbolic cases are
wenzelm@18601
   417
nested accordingly.  INCOMPATIBILITY, proofs need to be structured
wenzelm@18601
   418
explicitly.  For example:

If simultaneous goals are to be used with mutual rules, the statement

haftmann@22384

INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@22218
   666
wenzelm@22126

* Added syntactic class "size"; overloaded constant "size" now has

   668
type "'a::size ==> bool"
wenzelm@22126
   669
wenzelm@22126
   670
* Renamed constants "Divides.op div", "Divides.op mod" and "Divides.op
haftmann@22316

dvd" to "Divides.div", "Divides.mod" and "Divides.dvd". INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@22126
   672
wenzelm@22126
   673
* Added method "lexicographic_order" automatically synthesizes
wenzelm@22126
   674
termination relations as lexicographic combinations of size measures
wenzelm@22126
   675
-- 'function' package.
wenzelm@22126
   676
wenzelm@22126
   677
* HOL/records: generalised field-update to take a function on the
wenzelm@22126
   678
field rather than the new value: r(|A := x|) is translated to A_update
wenzelm@22126
   679
(K x) r The K-combinator that is internally used is called K_record.
schirmer@21226
   680
INCOMPATIBILITY: Usage of the plain update functions has to be
schirmer@21226
   681
adapted.
schirmer@21226
   682
 
wenzelm@22126
   683
* axclass "semiring_0" now contains annihilation axioms x * 0 = 0 and
wenzelm@22126
   684
0 * x = 0, which are required for a semiring.  Richer structures do
wenzelm@22126
   685
not inherit from semiring_0 anymore, because this property is a
wenzelm@22126
   686
theorem there, not an axiom.  INCOMPATIBILITY: In instances of
wenzelm@22126
   687
semiring_0, there is more to prove, but this is mostly trivial.
wenzelm@22126
   688
wenzelm@22126
   689
* axclass "recpower" was generalized to arbitrary monoids, not just
wenzelm@22126
   690
commutative semirings.  INCOMPATIBILITY: If you use recpower and need
wenzelm@22126
   691
commutativity or a semiring property, add the corresponding classes.
wenzelm@22126
   692
wenzelm@22126
   693
* Unified locale partial_order with class definition (cf. theory
wenzelm@22126
   694
Orderings), added parameter ``less''.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@21215
   695
haftmann@21099
   696
* Constant "List.list_all2" in List.thy now uses authentic syntax.
wenzelm@22126
   697
INCOMPATIBILITY: translations containing list_all2 may go wrong.  On
wenzelm@22126
   698
Isar level, use abbreviations instead.
wenzelm@22126
   699
wenzelm@22126
   700
* Renamed constant "List.op mem" to "List.memberl" INCOMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@22126
   701
rarely occuring name references (e.g. ``List.op mem.simps'') require
wenzelm@22126
   702
renaming (e.g. ``List.memberl.simps'').
wenzelm@22126
   703
wenzelm@22126
   704
* Renamed constants "0" to "HOL.zero" and "1" to "HOL.one".
wenzelm@22126
   705
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@22126
   706
wenzelm@22126
   707
* Added theory Code_Generator providing class 'eq', allowing for code
wenzelm@22126
   708
generation with polymorphic equality.
wenzelm@22126
   709
wenzelm@22126
   710
* Numeral syntax: type 'bin' which was a mere type copy of 'int' has
wenzelm@22126
   711
been abandoned in favour of plain 'int'. INCOMPATIBILITY --
wenzelm@22126
   712
significant changes for setting up numeral syntax for types:
haftmann@20485
   713
haftmann@20485
   714
  - new constants Numeral.pred and Numeral.succ instead
haftmann@20485
   715
      of former Numeral.bin_pred and Numeral.bin_succ.
haftmann@20485
   716
  - Use integer operations instead of bin_add, bin_mult and so on.
haftmann@20485
   717
  - Numeral simplification theorems named Numeral.numeral_simps instead of Bin_simps.
haftmann@20485
   718
  - ML structure Bin_Simprocs now named Int_Numeral_Base_Simprocs.
haftmann@20485
   719
haftmann@20485
   720
See HOL/Integ/IntArith.thy for an example setup.
haftmann@20485
   721
wenzelm@22126
   722
* New top level command 'normal_form' computes the normal form of a
wenzelm@22126
   723
term that may contain free variables. For example ``normal_form
wenzelm@22126
   724
"rev[a,b,c]"'' produces ``[b,c,a]'' (without proof).  This command is
wenzelm@22126
   725
suitable for heavy-duty computations because the functions are
wenzelm@22126
   726
compiled to ML first.
nipkow@19895
   727
wenzelm@17996
   728
* Alternative iff syntax "A <-> B" for equality on bool (with priority
wenzelm@17996
   729
25 like -->); output depends on the "iff" print_mode, the default is
wenzelm@17996
   730
"A = B" (with priority 50).
wenzelm@17996
   731
ballarin@19279
   732
* Renamed constants in HOL.thy and Orderings.thy:
haftmann@19233
   733
    op +   ~> HOL.plus
haftmann@19233
   734
    op -   ~> HOL.minus
haftmann@19233
   735
    uminus ~> HOL.uminus
haftmann@19233
   736
    op *   ~> HOL.times
haftmann@19277
   737
    op <   ~> Orderings.less
haftmann@19277
   738
    op <=  ~> Orderings.less_eq
haftmann@19233
   739
haftmann@19233
   740
Adaptions may be required in the following cases:
haftmann@19233
   741
nipkow@19377
   742
a) User-defined constants using any of the names "plus", "minus", "times",
nipkow@19377
   743
"less" or "less_eq". The standard syntax translations for "+", "-" and "*"
nipkow@19377
   744
may go wrong.
haftmann@19233
   745
INCOMPATIBILITY: use more specific names.
haftmann@19233
   746
haftmann@19277
   747
b) Variables named "plus", "minus", "times", "less", "less_eq"
haftmann@19233
   748
INCOMPATIBILITY: use more specific names.
haftmann@19233
   749
nipkow@19377
   750
c) Permutative equations (e.g. "a + b = b + a")
nipkow@19377
   751
Since the change of names also changes the order of terms, permutative
nipkow@19377
   752
rewrite rules may get applied in a different order. Experience shows that
nipkow@19377
   753
this is rarely the case (only two adaptions in the whole Isabelle
nipkow@19377
   754
distribution).
nipkow@19377
   755
INCOMPATIBILITY: rewrite proofs
haftmann@19233
   756
haftmann@19233
   757
d) ML code directly refering to constant names
haftmann@19233
   758
This in general only affects hand-written proof tactics, simprocs and so on.
haftmann@19233
   759
INCOMPATIBILITY: grep your sourcecode and replace names.

* Relations less (<) and less_eq (<=) are also available on type bool.
wenzelm@21265
   762
Modified syntax to disallow nesting without explicit parentheses,
wenzelm@21265
   763
e.g. "(x < y) < z" or "x < (y < z)", but NOT "x < y < z".
wenzelm@21265
   764
nipkow@18674
   765
* "LEAST x:A. P" expands to "LEAST x. x:A & P" (input only).
nipkow@18674
   766
krauss@20716
   767
* Relation composition operator "op O" now has precedence 75 and binds
krauss@20716
   768
stronger than union and intersection. INCOMPATIBILITY.
krauss@20716
   769
wenzelm@22126
   770
* The old set interval syntax "{m..n(}" (and relatives) has been
wenzelm@22126
   771
removed.  Use "{m..<n}" (and relatives) instead.
nipkow@19377
   772
wenzelm@17865
   773
* In the context of the assumption "~(s = t)" the Simplifier rewrites
wenzelm@17865
   774
"t = s" to False (by simproc "neq_simproc").  For backward
wenzelm@17865
   775
compatibility this can be disabled by ML "reset use_neq_simproc".
wenzelm@17779
   776
wenzelm@22126
   777
* "m dvd n" where m and n are numbers is evaluated to True/False by
wenzelm@22126
   778
simp.
wenzelm@22126
   779
wenzelm@22126
   780
* Theorem Cons_eq_map_conv no longer declared as ``simp''.
nipkow@19211
   781
ballarin@19279
   782
* Theorem setsum_mult renamed to setsum_right_distrib.
ballarin@19279
   783
nipkow@19211
   784
* Prefer ex1I over ex_ex1I in single-step reasoning, e.g. by the
wenzelm@22126
   785
``rule'' method.
wenzelm@22126
   786
wenzelm@22126
   787
* Reimplemented methods ``sat'' and ``satx'', with several
wenzelm@22126
   788
improvements: goals no longer need to be stated as "<prems> ==>
wenzelm@22126
   789
False", equivalences (i.e. "=" on type bool) are handled, variable
wenzelm@22126
   790
names of the form "lit_<n>" are no longer reserved, significant
wenzelm@22126
   791
speedup.
wenzelm@22126
   792
wenzelm@22126
   793
* Methods ``sat'' and ``satx'' can now replay MiniSat proof traces.
wenzelm@22126
   794
zChaff is still supported as well.
wenzelm@22126
   795
wenzelm@22126
   796
* 'inductive' and 'datatype': provide projections of mutual rules,
wenzelm@22126
   797
bundled as foo_bar.inducts;
wenzelm@22126
   798
wenzelm@22126
   799
* Library: moved theories Parity, GCD, Binomial, Infinite_Set to
wenzelm@22126
   800
Library.
wenzelm@21256
   801
wenzelm@21256
   802
* Library: moved theory Accessible_Part to main HOL.
wenzelm@19572
   803
wenzelm@18446
   804
* Library: added theory Coinductive_List of potentially infinite lists
wenzelm@18446
   805
as greatest fixed-point.
wenzelm@18399
   806
wenzelm@19254
   807
* Library: added theory AssocList which implements (finite) maps as
schirmer@19252
   808
association lists.
webertj@17809
   809
wenzelm@22126
   810
* Added proof method ``evaluation'' for efficiently solving a goal
wenzelm@22126
   811
(i.e. a boolean expression) by compiling it to ML. The goal is
wenzelm@22126
   812
"proved" (via an oracle) if it evaluates to True.
wenzelm@20807
   813
wenzelm@20807
   814
* Linear arithmetic now splits certain operators (e.g. min, max, abs)
wenzelm@20807
   815
also when invoked by the simplifier.  This results in the simplifier
haftmann@21056
   816
being more powerful on arithmetic goals.  INCOMPATIBILITY.  Set
wenzelm@20807
   817
fast_arith_split_limit to 0 to obtain the old behavior.
webertj@20217
   818
wenzelm@22126

* Support for hex (0x20) and binary (0b1001) numerals.
wenzelm@19254
   820
wenzelm@20807
   821
* New method: reify eqs (t), where eqs are equations for an
wenzelm@20807
   822
interpretation I :: 'a list => 'b => 'c and t::'c is an optional
wenzelm@20807
   823
parameter, computes a term s::'b and a list xs::'a list and proves the
wenzelm@20807
   824
theorem I xs s = t. This is also known as reification or quoting. The
wenzelm@20807
   825
resulting theorem is applied to the subgoal to substitute t with I xs
wenzelm@20807
   826
s.  If t is omitted, the subgoal itself is reified.
wenzelm@20807
   827
wenzelm@20807
   828
* New method: reflection corr_thm eqs (t). The parameters eqs and (t)
wenzelm@20807
   829
are as explained above. corr_thm is a theorem for I vs (f t) = I vs t,
wenzelm@20807
   830
where f is supposed to be a computable function (in the sense of code
wenzelm@20807
   831
generattion). The method uses reify to compute s and xs as above then
wenzelm@20807
   832
applies corr_thm and uses normalization by evaluation to "prove" f s =
wenzelm@20807
   833
r and finally gets the theorem t = r, which is again applied to the
wenzelm@20807
   834
subgoal. An Example is available in HOL/ex/ReflectionEx.thy.
wenzelm@20807
   835

wenzelm@19653
   860
for linear arithmetic over the reals. The quantifier elimination
wenzelm@19653
   861
feature is used only for decision, for compatibility with arith. This

formal entities in the source, referring to the context available at
wenzelm@22138

  val burrow: ('a list -> 'b list) -> 'a list list -> 'b list list
haftmann@18549
   943
  val fold_burrow: ('a list -> 'c -> 'b list * 'd) -> 'a list list -> 'c -> 'b list list * 'd
haftmann@18450
   944
wenzelm@18540
   945
The semantics of "burrow" is: "take a function with *simulatanously*
wenzelm@18540
   946
transforms a list of value, and apply it *simulatanously* to a list of
wenzelm@22126
   947
list of values of the appropriate type". Compare this with "map" which
wenzelm@18540
   948
would *not* apply its argument function simulatanously but in
wenzelm@22126
   949
sequence; "fold_burrow" has an additional context.
haftmann@18450
   950
wenzelm@18446
   951
* Pure/library: functions map2 and fold2 with curried syntax for

wenzelm@18446
   957
* Pure/library: indexed lists - some functions in the Isabelle library
wenzelm@18446
   958
treating lists over 'a as finite mappings from [0...n] to 'a have been
wenzelm@18446
   959
given more convenient names and signatures reminiscent of similar

   962
  val nth: 'a list -> int -> 'a

haftmann@18051
   965
wenzelm@18446

DUP/SAME instead of type option.  This is simpler in simple cases, and

   974
admits slightly more efficient complex applications.
wenzelm@18446
   975
wenzelm@18642

wenzelm@18644

internally.  See Pure/axclass.ML for the main internal interfaces --
wenzelm@19508

wenzelm@19006
  1005
global/local versions on theory vs. Proof.context have been
wenzelm@19006
  1006
discontinued; Attrib.syntax and Method.syntax have been adapted
wenzelm@19006
  1007
accordingly.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt parser expressions for

wenzelm@18446
  1012
allow natural usage in combination with the ||>, ||>>, |-> and
wenzelm@18446
  1013
fold_map combinators.
haftmann@18051

wenzelm@21647
  1015
* Pure: official theorem names (closed derivations) and additional
wenzelm@21647
  1016

wenzelm@18020
  1020
* Pure: primitive rule lift_rule now takes goal cterm instead of an

actual goal state (thm).  Use Thm.lift_rule (Thm.cprem_of st i) to
wenzelm@18020
  1022
achieve the old behaviour.
wenzelm@18020
  1023
wenzelm@18020
  1024
* Pure: the "Goal" constant is now called "prop", supporting a
wenzelm@18020
  1025
slightly more general idea of ``protecting'' meta-level rule
wenzelm@18020
  1026
statements.
wenzelm@18020
  1027
wenzelm@20040
  1028
* Pure: Logic.(un)varify only works in a global context, which is now
wenzelm@20040
  1029
enforced instead of silently assumed.  INCOMPATIBILITY, may use
wenzelm@20040
  1030
Logic.legacy_(un)varify as temporary workaround.
wenzelm@20040
  1031
wenzelm@20090
  1032
* Pure: structure Name provides scalable operations for generating
wenzelm@20090
  1033
internal variable names, notably Name.variants etc.  This replaces
wenzelm@20090
  1034
some popular functions from term.ML:
wenzelm@20090
  1035
wenzelm@20090
  1036
  Term.variant		->  Name.variant
wenzelm@20090
  1037
  Term.variantlist	->  Name.variant_list  (*canonical argument order*)
wenzelm@20090
  1038
  Term.invent_names	->  Name.invent_list
wenzelm@20090
  1039
wenzelm@20090
  1040
Note that low-level renaming rarely occurs in new code -- operations
wenzelm@20090
  1041
from structure Variable are used instead (see below).
wenzelm@20090
  1042
wenzelm@20040
  1043
* Pure: structure Variable provides fundamental operations for proper
wenzelm@20040
  1044
treatment of fixed/schematic variables in a context.  For example,
wenzelm@20040
  1045
Variable.import introduces fixes for schematics of given facts and
wenzelm@20040
  1046
Variable.export reverses the effect (up to renaming) -- this replaces
wenzelm@20040
  1047
various freeze_thaw operations.
wenzelm@20040
  1048
wenzelm@18567
  1049
* Pure: structure Goal provides simple interfaces for
wenzelm@17981
  1050
init/conclude/finish and tactical prove operations (replacing former
wenzelm@20040
  1051
Tactic.prove).  Goal.prove is the canonical way to prove results
wenzelm@20040
  1052
within a given context; Goal.prove_global is a degraded version for
wenzelm@20040
  1053
theory level goals, including a global Drule.standard.  Note that
wenzelm@20040
  1054
OldGoals.prove_goalw_cterm has long been obsolete, since it is
wenzelm@20040
  1055
ill-behaved in a local proof context (e.g. with local fixes/assumes or
wenzelm@20040
  1056
in a locale context).
wenzelm@17981
  1057
wenzelm@18815
  1058
* Isar: simplified treatment of user-level errors, using exception
wenzelm@18687
  1059
ERROR of string uniformly.  Function error now merely raises ERROR,
wenzelm@18686
  1060
without any side effect on output channels.  The Isar toplevel takes
wenzelm@18686
  1061
care of proper display of ERROR exceptions.  ML code may use plain
wenzelm@18686
  1062
handle/can/try; cat_error may be used to concatenate errors like this:
wenzelm@18686
  1063
wenzelm@18686
  1064
  ... handle ERROR msg => cat_error msg "..."
wenzelm@18686
  1065
wenzelm@18686
  1066
Toplevel ML code (run directly or through the Isar toplevel) may be
wenzelm@18687
  1067
embedded into the Isar toplevel with exception display/debug like
wenzelm@18687
  1068
this:
wenzelm@18686
  1069
wenzelm@18686
  1070
  Isar.toplevel (fn () => ...)
wenzelm@18686
  1071
wenzelm@18686
  1072
INCOMPATIBILITY, removed special transform_error facilities, removed
wenzelm@18686
  1073
obsolete variants of user-level exceptions (ERROR_MESSAGE,
wenzelm@18686
  1074
Context.PROOF, ProofContext.CONTEXT, Proof.STATE, ProofHistory.FAIL)
wenzelm@18686
  1075
-- use plain ERROR instead.
wenzelm@18686
  1076
wenzelm@18815
  1077
* Isar: theory setup now has type (theory -> theory), instead of a
wenzelm@18722
  1078
list.  INCOMPATIBILITY, may use #> to compose setup functions.
wenzelm@18722
  1079
wenzelm@18815
  1080
* Isar: installed ML toplevel pretty printer for type Proof.context,
wenzelm@18815
  1081
subject to ProofContext.debug/verbose flags.
wenzelm@18815
  1082
wenzelm@18815
  1083
* Isar: Toplevel.theory_to_proof admits transactions that modify the
wenzelm@18815
  1084
theory before entering a proof state.  Transactions now always see a
wenzelm@18815
  1085
quasi-functional intermediate checkpoint, both in interactive and
wenzelm@18590
  1086
batch mode.
wenzelm@18567
  1087
wenzelm@17878
  1088
* Simplifier: the simpset of a running simplification process now
wenzelm@17878
  1089
contains a proof context (cf. Simplifier.the_context), which is the
wenzelm@17878
  1090
very context that the initial simpset has been retrieved from (by
wenzelm@17890
  1091
simpset_of/local_simpset_of).  Consequently, all plug-in components
wenzelm@17878
  1092
(solver, looper etc.) may depend on arbitrary proof data.
wenzelm@17878
  1093
wenzelm@17878
  1094
* Simplifier.inherit_context inherits the proof context (plus the
wenzelm@17878
  1095
local bounds) of the current simplification process; any simproc
wenzelm@17878
  1096
etc. that calls the Simplifier recursively should do this!  Removed
wenzelm@17878
  1097
former Simplifier.inherit_bounds, which is already included here --
wenzelm@17890
  1098
INCOMPATIBILITY.  Tools based on low-level rewriting may even have to
wenzelm@17890
  1099
specify an explicit context using Simplifier.context/theory_context.
wenzelm@17878
  1100
wenzelm@17878
  1101
* Simplifier/Classical Reasoner: more abstract interfaces
wenzelm@17878
  1102
change_simpset/claset for modifying the simpset/claset reference of a
wenzelm@17878
  1103
theory; raw versions simpset/claset_ref etc. have been discontinued --
wenzelm@17878
  1104
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17878
  1105
wenzelm@18540
  1106
* Provers: more generic wrt. syntax of object-logics, avoid hardwired
wenzelm@18540
  1107
"Trueprop" etc.

This simplifies use of multiple Isabelle installations.
wenzelm@21471

  1125
nipkow@15130
  1126
* Theory headers: the new header syntax for Isar theories is
nipkow@15130
  1127
nipkow@15130
  1128
  theory <name>
wenzelm@16234
  1129
  imports <theory1> ... <theoryN>
wenzelm@16234
  1130
  uses <file1> ... <fileM>
nipkow@15130
  1131
  begin
nipkow@15130
  1132
wenzelm@16234
  1133
where the 'uses' part is optional.  The previous syntax
wenzelm@16234
  1134
wenzelm@16234
  1135
  theory <name> = <theory1> + ... + <theoryN>:
wenzelm@16234
  1136
wenzelm@16717
  1137
will disappear in the next release.  Use isatool fixheaders to convert
wenzelm@16717
  1138
existing theory files.  Note that there is no change in ancient
wenzelm@17371
  1139
non-Isar theories now, but these will disappear soon.
nipkow@15130
  1140
berghofe@15475
  1141
* Theory loader: parent theories can now also be referred to via
wenzelm@16234
  1142
relative and absolute paths.
wenzelm@16234
  1143
wenzelm@17408
  1144
* Command 'find_theorems' searches for a list of criteria instead of a
wenzelm@17408
  1145
list of constants. Known criteria are: intro, elim, dest, name:string,
wenzelm@17408
  1146
simp:term, and any term. Criteria can be preceded by '-' to select
wenzelm@17408
  1147
theorems that do not match. Intro, elim, dest select theorems that
wenzelm@17408
  1148
match the current goal, name:s selects theorems whose fully qualified
wenzelm@17408
  1149
name contain s, and simp:term selects all simplification rules whose
wenzelm@17408
  1150
lhs match term.  Any other term is interpreted as pattern and selects
wenzelm@17408
  1151
all theorems matching the pattern. Available in ProofGeneral under
wenzelm@17408
  1152
'ProofGeneral -> Find Theorems' or C-c C-f.  Example:
wenzelm@16234
  1153
wenzelm@17275
  1154
  C-c C-f (100) "(_::nat) + _ + _" intro -name: "HOL."
wenzelm@16234
  1155
wenzelm@16234
  1156
prints the last 100 theorems matching the pattern "(_::nat) + _ + _",
wenzelm@16234
  1157
matching the current goal as introduction rule and not having "HOL."
wenzelm@16234
  1158
in their name (i.e. not being defined in theory HOL).
wenzelm@16013
  1159
wenzelm@17408
  1160
* Command 'thms_containing' has been discontinued in favour of
wenzelm@17408
  1161
'find_theorems'; INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17408
  1162
wenzelm@17385
  1163
* Communication with Proof General is now 8bit clean, which means that
wenzelm@17385
  1164
Unicode text in UTF-8 encoding may be used within theory texts (both
wenzelm@17408
  1165
formal and informal parts).  Cf. option -U of the Isabelle Proof
wenzelm@17538
  1166
General interface.  Here are some simple examples (cf. src/HOL/ex):

* Improved efficiency of the Simplifier and, to a lesser degree, the
wenzelm@17425
  1172
Classical Reasoner.  Typical big applications run around 2 times
wenzelm@17425
  1173

*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@15703
  1177
wenzelm@16234
  1178
* Commands 'display_drafts' and 'print_drafts' perform simple output
wenzelm@16234
  1179
of raw sources.  Only those symbols that do not require additional
wenzelm@16234
  1180
LaTeX packages (depending on comments in isabellesym.sty) are
wenzelm@16234
  1181
displayed properly, everything else is left verbatim.  isatool display
wenzelm@16234
  1182
and isatool print are used as front ends (these are subject to the
wenzelm@16234
  1183
DVI/PDF_VIEWER and PRINT_COMMAND settings, respectively).
wenzelm@16234
  1184
wenzelm@17047
  1185
* Command tags control specific markup of certain regions of text,
wenzelm@17047
  1186
notably folding and hiding.  Predefined tags include "theory" (for
wenzelm@17047
  1187
theory begin and end), "proof" for proof commands, and "ML" for
wenzelm@17047
  1188
commands involving ML code; the additional tags "visible" and
wenzelm@17047
  1189
"invisible" are unused by default.  Users may give explicit tag
wenzelm@17047
  1190
specifications in the text, e.g. ''by %invisible (auto)''.  The
wenzelm@17047
  1191
interpretation of tags is determined by the LaTeX job during document
wenzelm@17047
  1192
preparation: see option -V of isatool usedir, or options -n and -t of
wenzelm@17047
  1193
isatool document, or even the LaTeX macros \isakeeptag, \isafoldtag,
wenzelm@17047
  1194
\isadroptag.
wenzelm@17047
  1195
wenzelm@17047
  1196
Several document versions may be produced at the same time via isatool
wenzelm@17047
  1197
usedir (the generated index.html will link all of them).  Typical
wenzelm@17047
  1198
specifications include ''-V document=theory,proof,ML'' to present
wenzelm@17047
  1199
theory/proof/ML parts faithfully, ''-V outline=/proof,/ML'' to fold
wenzelm@17047
  1200
proof and ML commands, and ''-V mutilated=-theory,-proof,-ML'' to omit
wenzelm@17047
  1201
these parts without any formal replacement text.  The Isabelle site
wenzelm@17047
  1202
default settings produce ''document'' and ''outline'' versions as
wenzelm@17047
  1203
specified above.
wenzelm@16234
  1204
haftmann@17402
  1205
* Several new antiquotations:
wenzelm@15979
  1206
wenzelm@15979
  1207
  @{term_type term} prints a term with its type annotated;
wenzelm@15979
  1208
wenzelm@15979
  1209
  @{typeof term} prints the type of a term;
wenzelm@15979
  1210
wenzelm@16234
  1211
  @{const const} is the same as @{term const}, but checks that the
wenzelm@16234
  1212
  argument is a known logical constant;
wenzelm@15979
  1213
wenzelm@15979
  1214
  @{term_style style term} and @{thm_style style thm} print a term or
wenzelm@16234
  1215
  theorem applying a "style" to it
wenzelm@16234
  1216
wenzelm@17117
  1217
  @{ML text}
wenzelm@17117
  1218
wenzelm@16234
  1219
Predefined styles are 'lhs' and 'rhs' printing the lhs/rhs of
wenzelm@16234
  1220
definitions, equations, inequations etc., 'concl' printing only the
schirmer@17393
  1221
conclusion of a meta-logical statement theorem, and 'prem1' .. 'prem19'
wenzelm@16234
  1222
to print the specified premise.  TermStyle.add_style provides an ML
wenzelm@16234
  1223
interface for introducing further styles.  See also the "LaTeX Sugar"
wenzelm@17117
  1224
document practical applications.  The ML antiquotation prints
wenzelm@17117
  1225
type-checked ML expressions verbatim.
wenzelm@16234
  1226
wenzelm@17259
  1227
* Markup commands 'chapter', 'section', 'subsection', 'subsubsection',
wenzelm@17259
  1228
and 'text' support optional locale specification '(in loc)', which
wenzelm@17269
  1229
specifies the default context for interpreting antiquotations.  For
wenzelm@17269
  1230
example: 'text (in lattice) {* @{thm inf_assoc}*}'.
wenzelm@17259
  1231
wenzelm@17259
  1232
* Option 'locale=NAME' of antiquotations specifies an alternative
wenzelm@17259
  1233
context interpreting the subsequent argument.  For example: @{thm
wenzelm@17269
  1234
[locale=lattice] inf_assoc}.
wenzelm@17259
  1235
wenzelm@17097
  1236
* Proper output of proof terms (@{prf ...} and @{full_prf ...}) within
wenzelm@17097
  1237
a proof context.
wenzelm@17097
  1238
wenzelm@17097
  1239
* Proper output of antiquotations for theory commands involving a
wenzelm@17097
  1240
proof context (such as 'locale' or 'theorem (in loc) ...').
wenzelm@17097
  1241
wenzelm@17193
  1242
* Delimiters of outer tokens (string etc.) now produce separate LaTeX
wenzelm@17193
  1243
macros (\isachardoublequoteopen, isachardoublequoteclose etc.).
wenzelm@17193
  1244
wenzelm@17193
  1245
* isatool usedir: new option -C (default true) controls whether option
wenzelm@17193
  1246
-D should include a copy of the original document directory; -C false
wenzelm@17193
  1247
prevents unwanted effects such as copying of administrative CVS data.

  1250
*** Pure ***
wenzelm@16234
  1251
wenzelm@16234
  1252
* Considerably improved version of 'constdefs' command.  Now performs
wenzelm@16234
  1253
automatic type-inference of declared constants; additional support for
wenzelm@16234
  1254
local structure declarations (cf. locales and HOL records), see also
wenzelm@16234
  1255
isar-ref manual.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY: need to observe strictly
wenzelm@16234
  1256
sequential dependencies of definitions within a single 'constdefs'
wenzelm@16234
  1257
section; moreover, the declared name needs to be an identifier.  If
wenzelm@16234
  1258
all fails, consider to fall back on 'consts' and 'defs' separately.
wenzelm@16234
  1259
wenzelm@16234
  1260
* Improved indexed syntax and implicit structures.  First of all,
wenzelm@16234
  1261
indexed syntax provides a notational device for subscripted
wenzelm@16234
  1262
application, using the new syntax \<^bsub>term\<^esub> for arbitrary
wenzelm@16234
  1263
expressions.  Secondly, in a local context with structure
wenzelm@16234
  1264
declarations, number indexes \<^sub>n or the empty index (default
wenzelm@16234
  1265
number 1) refer to a certain fixed variable implicitly; option
wenzelm@16234
  1266
show_structs controls printing of implicit structures.  Typical
wenzelm@16234
  1267
applications of these concepts involve record types and locales.
wenzelm@16234
  1268
wenzelm@16234
  1269
* New command 'no_syntax' removes grammar declarations (and
wenzelm@16234
  1270
translations) resulting from the given syntax specification, which is
wenzelm@16234
  1271
interpreted in the same manner as for the 'syntax' command.
wenzelm@16234
  1272
wenzelm@16234
  1273
* 'Advanced' translation functions (parse_translation etc.) may depend
wenzelm@16234
  1274
on the signature of the theory context being presently used for
wenzelm@16234
  1275
parsing/printing, see also isar-ref manual.
wenzelm@16234
  1276
wenzelm@16856
  1277
* Improved 'oracle' command provides a type-safe interface to turn an
wenzelm@16856
  1278
ML expression of type theory -> T -> term into a primitive rule of
wenzelm@16856
  1279
type theory -> T -> thm (i.e. the functionality of Thm.invoke_oracle
wenzelm@16856
  1280
is already included here); see also FOL/ex/IffExample.thy;
wenzelm@16856
  1281
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@16856
  1282
wenzelm@17275
  1283
* axclass: name space prefix for class "c" is now "c_class" (was "c"
wenzelm@17275
  1284
before); "cI" is no longer bound, use "c.intro" instead.
wenzelm@17275
  1285
INCOMPATIBILITY.  This change avoids clashes of fact bindings for
wenzelm@17275
  1286
axclasses vs. locales.
wenzelm@17275
  1287
wenzelm@16234
  1288
* Improved internal renaming of symbolic identifiers -- attach primes
wenzelm@16234
  1289
instead of base 26 numbers.
wenzelm@16234

wenzelm@16234
  1294
* In schematic variable names, *any* symbol following \<^isub> or
wenzelm@16234
  1295
\<^isup> is now treated as part of the base name.  For example, the
wenzelm@16234
  1296
following works without printing of awkward ".0" indexes:
wenzelm@16234
  1297
wenzelm@16234
  1298
  lemma "x\<^isub>1 = x\<^isub>2 ==> x\<^isub>2 = x\<^isub>1"

  1299
    by simp
wenzelm@16234

* Pretty printer now supports unbreakable blocks, specified in mixfix
wenzelm@16234
  1304
annotations as "(00...)".
wenzelm@16234
  1305
wenzelm@16234
  1306
* Clear separation of logical types and nonterminals, where the latter
wenzelm@16234
  1307
may only occur in 'syntax' specifications or type abbreviations.
wenzelm@16234
  1308
Before that distinction was only partially implemented via type class
wenzelm@16234
  1309
"logic" vs. "{}".  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY in rare cases of improper
wenzelm@16234
  1310
use of 'types'/'consts' instead of 'nonterminals'/'syntax'.  Some very
wenzelm@16234
  1311
exotic syntax specifications may require further adaption
wenzelm@17691
  1312
(e.g. Cube/Cube.thy).
wenzelm@16234
  1313
wenzelm@16234
  1314
* Removed obsolete type class "logic", use the top sort {} instead.
wenzelm@16234
  1315
Note that non-logical types should be declared as 'nonterminals'
wenzelm@16234
  1316
rather than 'types'.  INCOMPATIBILITY for new object-logic
wenzelm@16234
  1317
specifications.
wenzelm@16234
  1318
ballarin@17095
  1319

ballarin@17095
  1320
locally fixed variables as well.
ballarin@17095
  1321
wenzelm@16234

* Simplifier: can now control the depth to which conditional rewriting
wenzelm@16234
  1323
is traced via the PG menu Isabelle -> Settings -> Trace Simp Depth
wenzelm@16234
  1324
Limit.
wenzelm@16234
  1325
wenzelm@16234
  1326
* Simplifier: simplification procedures may now take the current
wenzelm@16234
  1327
simpset into account (cf. Simplifier.simproc(_i) / mk_simproc
wenzelm@16234
  1328
interface), which is very useful for calling the Simplifier
wenzelm@16234
  1329
recursively.  Minor INCOMPATIBILITY: the 'prems' argument of simprocs
wenzelm@16234
  1330
is gone -- use prems_of_ss on the simpset instead.  Moreover, the
wenzelm@16234
  1331
low-level mk_simproc no longer applies Logic.varify internally, to
wenzelm@16234
  1332
allow for use in a context of fixed variables.

nipkow@17590

wenzelm@16234
  1340
* Reorganized bootstrapping of the Pure theories; CPure is now derived
wenzelm@16234
  1341
from Pure, which contains all common declarations already.  Both
wenzelm@16234
  1342
theories are defined via plain Isabelle/Isar .thy files.
wenzelm@16234
  1343
INCOMPATIBILITY: elements of CPure (such as the CPure.intro /
wenzelm@16234
  1344
CPure.elim / CPure.dest attributes) now appear in the Pure name space;
wenzelm@16234
  1345
use isatool fixcpure to adapt your theory and ML sources.
wenzelm@16234
  1346
wenzelm@16234

wenzelm@16234
  1349

generation) and code_library (modular code generation, ML structures
wenzelm@17664
  1361
for each theory).  INCOMPATIBILITY: new keywords 'file' and 'contains'
wenzelm@17664
  1362
must be quoted when used as identifiers.
wenzelm@17664
  1363
wenzelm@17664
  1364
* New 'value' command for reading, evaluating and printing terms using

*** Locales ***
ballarin@17095
  1370
wenzelm@17385
  1371
* New commands for the interpretation of locale expressions in
wenzelm@17385
  1372
theories (1), locales (2) and proof contexts (3).  These generate
wenzelm@17385
  1373
proof obligations from the expression specification.  After the
wenzelm@17385
  1374
obligations have been discharged, theorems of the expression are added
wenzelm@17385
  1375
to the theory, target locale or proof context.  The synopsis of the
wenzelm@17385
  1376
commands is a follows:
wenzelm@17385
  1377
ballarin@17095
  1378
  (1) interpretation expr inst
ballarin@17095
  1379
  (2) interpretation target < expr
ballarin@17095
  1380
  (3) interpret expr inst
wenzelm@17385
  1381
ballarin@17095
  1382
Interpretation in theories and proof contexts require a parameter
ballarin@17095
  1383
instantiation of terms from the current context.  This is applied to
wenzelm@17385
  1384
specifications and theorems of the interpreted expression.
wenzelm@17385
  1385
Interpretation in locales only permits parameter renaming through the
wenzelm@17385
  1386
locale expression.  Interpretation is smart in that interpretations
wenzelm@17385
  1387
that are active already do not occur in proof obligations, neither are
wenzelm@17385
  1388
instantiated theorems stored in duplicate.  Use 'print_interps' to
wenzelm@17385
  1389
inspect active interpretations of a particular locale.  For details,
ballarin@17436
  1390
see the Isar Reference manual.  Examples can be found in
ballarin@17436
  1391
HOL/Finite_Set.thy and HOL/Algebra/UnivPoly.thy.
wenzelm@16234
  1392
wenzelm@16234
  1393
INCOMPATIBILITY: former 'instantiate' has been withdrawn, use
wenzelm@16234
  1394
'interpret' instead.
wenzelm@16234
  1395
wenzelm@17385
  1396
* New context element 'constrains' for adding type constraints to
wenzelm@17385
  1397
parameters.
wenzelm@17385
  1398
wenzelm@17385
  1399
* Context expressions: renaming of parameters with syntax
wenzelm@17385
  1400
redeclaration.
ballarin@17095
  1401
ballarin@17095
  1402
* Locale declaration: 'includes' disallowed.
ballarin@17095
  1403
wenzelm@16234
  1404
* Proper static binding of attribute syntax -- i.e. types / terms /
wenzelm@16234
  1405
facts mentioned as arguments are always those of the locale definition
wenzelm@16234
  1406
context, independently of the context of later invocations.  Moreover,
wenzelm@16234
  1407
locale operations (renaming and type / term instantiation) are applied
wenzelm@16234
  1408
to attribute arguments as expected.
wenzelm@16234
  1409
wenzelm@16234
  1410
INCOMPATIBILITY of the ML interface: always pass Attrib.src instead of
wenzelm@16234
  1411
actual attributes; rare situations may require Attrib.attribute to
wenzelm@16234
  1412
embed those attributes into Attrib.src that lack concrete syntax.
wenzelm@16234
  1413
Attribute implementations need to cooperate properly with the static
wenzelm@16234
  1414
binding mechanism.  Basic parsers Args.XXX_typ/term/prop and
wenzelm@16234
  1415
Attrib.XXX_thm etc. already do the right thing without further
wenzelm@16234
  1416
intervention.  Only unusual applications -- such as "where" or "of"
wenzelm@16234
  1417
(cf. src/Pure/Isar/attrib.ML), which process arguments depending both
wenzelm@16234
  1418
on the context and the facts involved -- may have to assign parsed
wenzelm@16234
  1419
values to argument tokens explicitly.
wenzelm@16234
  1420
wenzelm@16234
  1421
* Changed parameter management in theorem generation for long goal
wenzelm@16234
  1422
statements with 'includes'.  INCOMPATIBILITY: produces a different
wenzelm@16234
  1423
theorem statement in rare situations.
wenzelm@16234
  1424
ballarin@17228
  1425

  1432
single-step rewriting: it now works in bound variable contexts. New is
wenzelm@16234
  1433
'subst (asm)', for rewriting an assumption.  INCOMPATIBILITY: may

wenzelm@16234
  1460
Moreover, the mathematically important symbolic identifier \<epsilon>
wenzelm@16234

  1464
Similarly for all quantifiers: "ALL x > y" etc.  The x-symbol for >=
wenzelm@17371
  1465
is \<ge>. New transitivity rules have been added to HOL/Orderings.thy to
avigad@17016
  1466
support corresponding Isar calculations.
wenzelm@16234

* Theory Finite_Set: changed the syntax for 'setsum', summation over
wenzelm@16234
  1492
finite sets: "setsum (%x. e) A", which used to be "\<Sum>x:A. e", is
wenzelm@17371
  1493
now either "SUM x:A. e" or "\<Sum>x \<in> A. e". The bound variable can

wenzelm@16234
  1502
wenzelm@16234
  1503
The latter form "\<Sum>x < k. e" used to be based on a separate
wenzelm@16234

  1509
wenzelm@16234

wenzelm@16234
  1518
* Datatype induction via method 'induct' now preserves the name of the
wenzelm@16234
  1519
induction variable. For example, when proving P(xs::'a list) by
wenzelm@16234
  1520
induction on xs, the induction step is now P(xs) ==> P(a#xs) rather
wenzelm@16234

wenzelm@16234
  1523
wenzelm@16234
  1524
* Reworked implementation of records.  Improved scalability for
wenzelm@16234
  1525
records with many fields, avoiding performance problems for type
wenzelm@16234
  1526
inference. Records are no longer composed of nested field types, but
wenzelm@16234
  1527
of nested extension types. Therefore the record type only grows linear
wenzelm@16234
  1528
in the number of extensions and not in the number of fields.  The
wenzelm@16234
  1529
top-level (users) view on records is preserved.  Potential
wenzelm@16234
  1530
INCOMPATIBILITY only in strange cases, where the theory depends on the
wenzelm@16234
  1531
old record representation. The type generated for a record is called
wenzelm@16234

  1537
quite long.
wenzelm@16234

wenzelm@16234
  1539
New simproc record_upd_simproc for simplification of multiple record
wenzelm@16234
  1540
updates enabled by default.  Moreover, trivial updates are also
wenzelm@16234
  1541
removed: r(|x := x r|) = r.  INCOMPATIBILITY: old proofs break
wenzelm@16234
  1542
occasionally, since simplification is more powerful by default.
wenzelm@16234

type-variables in the term.
wenzelm@17275
  1546
wenzelm@16234
  1547
* Simplifier: automatically reasons about transitivity chains
wenzelm@16234
  1548
involving "trancl" (r^+) and "rtrancl" (r^*) by setting up tactics
wenzelm@16234
  1549
provided by Provers/trancl.ML as additional solvers.  INCOMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@16234
  1550
old proofs break occasionally as simplification may now solve more

  1551
goals than previously.
wenzelm@16234

wenzelm@16234
  1553
* Simplifier: converts x <= y into x = y if assumption y <= x is
wenzelm@16234
  1554
present.  Works for all partial orders (class "order"), in particular
wenzelm@16234
  1555
numbers and sets.  For linear orders (e.g. numbers) it treats ~ x < y
wenzelm@16234
  1556
just like y <= x.

* Simplifier: new simproc for "let x = a in f x".  If a is a free or
wenzelm@16234
  1559
bound variable or a constant then the let is unfolded.  Otherwise
wenzelm@16234
  1560
first a is simplified to b, and then f b is simplified to g. If
wenzelm@16234
  1561
possible we abstract b from g arriving at "let x = b in h x",
wenzelm@16234
  1562
otherwise we unfold the let and arrive at g.  The simproc can be

  1790
Parentheses should be omitted unless argument is lazy, for example:
huffman@17442
  1791
huffman@17442
  1792
  domain 'a stream = cons "'a" (lazy "'a stream")
huffman@17442
  1793
wenzelm@17533
  1794
* New command 'fixrec' for defining recursive functions with pattern
wenzelm@17533
  1795
matching; defining multiple functions with mutual recursion is also
wenzelm@17533
  1796
supported.  Patterns may include the constants cpair, spair, up, sinl,
wenzelm@17533
  1797
sinr, or any data constructor defined by the domain package. The given
wenzelm@17533
  1798
equations are proven as rewrite rules. See HOLCF/ex/Fixrec_ex.thy for
wenzelm@17533
  1799
syntax and examples.
wenzelm@17533
  1800
wenzelm@17533
  1801
* New commands 'cpodef' and 'pcpodef' for defining predicate subtypes
wenzelm@17533
  1802
of cpo and pcpo types. Syntax is exactly like the 'typedef' command,
wenzelm@17533
  1803
but the proof obligation additionally includes an admissibility
wenzelm@17533
  1804
requirement. The packages generate instances of class cpo or pcpo,
wenzelm@17533
  1805
with continuity and strictness theorems for Rep and Abs.
huffman@17442
  1806
huffman@17584
  1807
* HOLCF: Many theorems have been renamed according to a more standard naming
huffman@17584
  1808
scheme (INCOMPATIBILITY):
huffman@17584
  1809
huffman@17584
  1810
  foo_inject:  "foo$x = foo$y ==> x = y"
huffman@17584
  1811
  foo_eq:      "(foo$x = foo$y) = (x = y)"
huffman@17584
  1812
  foo_less:    "(foo$x << foo$y) = (x << y)"
huffman@17584
  1813
  foo_strict:  "foo$UU = UU"
huffman@17584
  1814
  foo_defined: "... ==> foo$x ~= UU"
huffman@17584
  1815
  foo_defined_iff: "(foo$x = UU) = (x = UU)"

*** ZF ***
paulson@14885
  1819
wenzelm@16234
  1820
* ZF/ex: theories Group and Ring provide examples in abstract algebra,
wenzelm@16234
  1821
including the First Isomorphism Theorem (on quotienting by the kernel
wenzelm@16234
  1822
of a homomorphism).
wenzelm@15089
  1823
wenzelm@15089
  1824
* ZF/Simplifier: install second copy of type solver that actually
wenzelm@16234
  1825
makes use of TC rules declared to Isar proof contexts (or locales);
wenzelm@16234
  1826
the old version is still required for ML proof scripts.
wenzelm@15703
  1827
wenzelm@15703
  1828
wenzelm@17445
  1829
*** Cube ***
wenzelm@17445
  1830
wenzelm@17445
  1831
* Converted to Isar theory format; use locales instead of axiomatic
wenzelm@17445
  1832
theories.
wenzelm@17445
  1833
wenzelm@17445
  1834
wenzelm@15703
  1835
*** ML ***
wenzelm@15703
  1836
haftmann@21339
  1837
* Pure/library.ML: added ##>, ##>>, #>> -- higher-order counterparts
haftmann@21339
  1838
for ||>, ||>>, |>>,
haftmann@21339
  1839
wenzelm@15973
  1840
* Pure/library.ML no longer defines its own option datatype, but uses
wenzelm@16234
  1841
that of the SML basis, which has constructors NONE and SOME instead of
wenzelm@16234
  1842
None and Some, as well as exception Option.Option instead of OPTION.
wenzelm@16234
  1843
The functions the, if_none, is_some, is_none have been adapted
wenzelm@16234
  1844
accordingly, while Option.map replaces apsome.
wenzelm@15973
  1845
wenzelm@16860
  1846
* Pure/library.ML: the exception LIST has been given up in favour of
wenzelm@16860
  1847
the standard exceptions Empty and Subscript, as well as
wenzelm@16860
  1848
Library.UnequalLengths.  Function like Library.hd and Library.tl are
wenzelm@16860
  1849
superceded by the standard hd and tl functions etc.
wenzelm@16860
  1850
wenzelm@16860
  1851
A number of basic list functions are no longer exported to the ML
wenzelm@16860
  1852
toplevel, as they are variants of predefined functions.  The following
wenzelm@16234
  1853
suggests how one can translate existing code:
wenzelm@15973
  1854
wenzelm@15973
  1855
    rev_append xs ys = List.revAppend (xs, ys)
wenzelm@15973
  1856
    nth_elem (i, xs) = List.nth (xs, i)
wenzelm@15973
  1857
    last_elem xs = List.last xs
wenzelm@15973
  1858
    flat xss = List.concat xss
wenzelm@16234
  1859
    seq fs = List.app fs
wenzelm@15973
  1860
    partition P xs = List.partition P xs
wenzelm@15973
  1861
    mapfilter f xs = List.mapPartial f xs
wenzelm@15973
  1862
wenzelm@16860
  1863
* Pure/library.ML: several combinators for linear functional
wenzelm@16860
  1864
transformations, notably reverse application and composition:
wenzelm@16860
  1865
wenzelm@17371
  1866
  x |> f                f #> g
wenzelm@17371
  1867
  (x, y) |-> f          f #-> g
wenzelm@16860
  1868
haftmann@17495
  1869
* Pure/library.ML: introduced/changed precedence of infix operators:
haftmann@17495
  1870
haftmann@17495
  1871
  infix 1 |> |-> ||> ||>> |>> |>>> #> #->;
haftmann@17495
  1872
  infix 2 ?;
haftmann@17495
  1873
  infix 3 o oo ooo oooo;
haftmann@17495
  1874
  infix 4 ~~ upto downto;
haftmann@17495
  1875
haftmann@17495
  1876
Maybe INCOMPATIBILITY when any of those is used in conjunction with other
haftmann@17495
  1877
infix operators.
haftmann@17495
  1878
wenzelm@17408
  1879
* Pure/library.ML: natural list combinators fold, fold_rev, and
haftmann@16869
  1880
fold_map support linear functional transformations and nesting.  For
wenzelm@16860
  1881
example:
wenzelm@16860
  1882
wenzelm@16860
  1883
  fold f [x1, ..., xN] y =
wenzelm@16860
  1884
    y |> f x1 |> ... |> f xN
wenzelm@16860
  1885
wenzelm@16860
  1886
  (fold o fold) f [xs1, ..., xsN] y =
wenzelm@16860
  1887
    y |> fold f xs1 |> ... |> fold f xsN
wenzelm@16860
  1888
wenzelm@16860
  1889
  fold f [x1, ..., xN] =
wenzelm@16860
  1890
    f x1 #> ... #> f xN
wenzelm@16860
  1891
wenzelm@16860
  1892
  (fold o fold) f [xs1, ..., xsN] =
wenzelm@16860
  1893
    fold f xs1 #> ... #> fold f xsN
wenzelm@16860
  1894
wenzelm@17408
  1895
* Pure/library.ML: the following selectors on type 'a option are
wenzelm@17408
  1896
available:
wenzelm@17408
  1897
wenzelm@17408
  1898
  the:               'a option -> 'a  (*partial*)
wenzelm@17408
  1899
  these:             'a option -> 'a  where 'a = 'b list
haftmann@17402
  1900
  the_default: 'a -> 'a option -> 'a
haftmann@17402
  1901
  the_list:          'a option -> 'a list
haftmann@17402
  1902
wenzelm@17408
  1903
* Pure/General: structure AList (cf. Pure/General/alist.ML) provides
wenzelm@17408
  1904
basic operations for association lists, following natural argument
haftmann@17564
  1905
order; moreover the explicit equality predicate passed here avoids
haftmann@17495
  1906
potentially expensive polymorphic runtime equality checks.
haftmann@17495
  1907
The old functions may be expressed as follows:
wenzelm@17408
  1908
wenzelm@17408
  1909
  assoc = uncurry (AList.lookup (op =))
wenzelm@17408
  1910
  assocs = these oo AList.lookup (op =)
wenzelm@17408
  1911
  overwrite = uncurry (AList.update (op =)) o swap
wenzelm@17408
  1912
haftmann@17564
  1913
* Pure/General: structure AList (cf. Pure/General/alist.ML) provides
haftmann@17564
  1914
haftmann@17564
  1915
  val make: ('a -> 'b) -> 'a list -> ('a * 'b) list
haftmann@17564
  1916
  val find: ('a * 'b -> bool) -> ('c * 'b) list -> 'a -> 'c list
haftmann@17564
  1917
haftmann@17564
  1918
replacing make_keylist and keyfilter (occassionally used)
haftmann@17564
  1919
Naive rewrites:
haftmann@17564
  1920
haftmann@17564
  1921
  make_keylist = AList.make
haftmann@17564
  1922
  keyfilter = AList.find (op =)
haftmann@17564
  1923
haftmann@17564
  1924
* eq_fst and eq_snd now take explicit equality parameter, thus
haftmann@17564
  1925
  avoiding eqtypes. Naive rewrites:
haftmann@17564
  1926
haftmann@17564
  1927
    eq_fst = eq_fst (op =)
haftmann@17564
  1928
    eq_snd = eq_snd (op =)
haftmann@17564
  1929
haftmann@17564
  1930
* Removed deprecated apl and apr (rarely used).
haftmann@17564
  1931
  Naive rewrites:
haftmann@17564
  1932
haftmann@17564
  1933
    apl (n, op) =>>= curry op n
haftmann@17564
  1934
    apr (op, m) =>>= fn n => op (n, m)
haftmann@17564
  1935
wenzelm@17408
  1936
* Pure/General: structure OrdList (cf. Pure/General/ord_list.ML)
wenzelm@17408
  1937
provides a reasonably efficient light-weight implementation of sets as
wenzelm@17408
  1938
lists.
wenzelm@17408
  1939
wenzelm@17408
  1940
* Pure/General: generic tables (cf. Pure/General/table.ML) provide a
wenzelm@17408
  1941
few new operations; existing lookup and update are now curried to
wenzelm@17408
  1942
follow natural argument order (for use with fold etc.);
wenzelm@17408
  1943
INCOMPATIBILITY, use (uncurry Symtab.lookup) etc. as last resort.
wenzelm@17408
  1944
wenzelm@17408
  1945
* Pure/General: output via the Isabelle channels of
wenzelm@17408
  1946
writeln/warning/error etc. is now passed through Output.output, with a
wenzelm@17408
  1947
hook for arbitrary transformations depending on the print_mode
wenzelm@17408
  1948
(cf. Output.add_mode -- the first active mode that provides a output
wenzelm@17408
  1949
function wins).  Already formatted output may be embedded into further
wenzelm@17408
  1950
text via Output.raw; the result of Pretty.string_of/str_of and derived
wenzelm@17408
  1951
functions (string_of_term/cterm/thm etc.) is already marked raw to
wenzelm@17408
  1952
accommodate easy composition of diagnostic messages etc.  Programmers
wenzelm@17408
  1953
rarely need to care about Output.output or Output.raw at all, with
wenzelm@17408
  1954
some notable exceptions: Output.output is required when bypassing the
wenzelm@17408
  1955
standard channels (writeln etc.), or in token translations to produce
wenzelm@17408
  1956
properly formatted results; Output.raw is required when capturing
wenzelm@17408
  1957
already output material that will eventually be presented to the user
wenzelm@17408
  1958
a second time.  For the default print mode, both Output.output and
wenzelm@17408
  1959
Output.raw have no effect.
wenzelm@17408
  1960
wenzelm@17408
  1961
* Pure/General: Output.time_accumulator NAME creates an operator ('a
wenzelm@17408
  1962
-> 'b) -> 'a -> 'b to measure runtime and count invocations; the
wenzelm@17408
  1963
cumulative results are displayed at the end of a batch session.
wenzelm@17408
  1964
wenzelm@17408
  1965
* Pure/General: File.sysify_path and File.quote_sysify path have been
wenzelm@17408
  1966
replaced by File.platform_path and File.shell_path (with appropriate
wenzelm@17408
  1967
hooks).  This provides a clean interface for unusual systems where the
wenzelm@17408
  1968
internal and external process view of file names are different.
wenzelm@17408
  1969
wenzelm@16689
  1970
* Pure: more efficient orders for basic syntactic entities: added
wenzelm@16689
  1971
fast_string_ord, fast_indexname_ord, fast_term_ord; changed sort_ord
wenzelm@16689
  1972
and typ_ord to use fast_string_ord and fast_indexname_ord (term_ord is
wenzelm@16689
  1973
NOT affected); structures Symtab, Vartab, Typtab, Termtab use the fast
wenzelm@16689
  1974
orders now -- potential INCOMPATIBILITY for code that depends on a
wenzelm@16689
  1975
particular order for Symtab.keys, Symtab.dest, etc. (consider using
wenzelm@16689
  1976
Library.sort_strings on result).
wenzelm@16689
  1977
wenzelm@17408
  1978
* Pure/term.ML: combinators fold_atyps, fold_aterms, fold_term_types,
wenzelm@17408
  1979
fold_types traverse types/terms from left to right, observing natural
wenzelm@17408
  1980
argument order.  Supercedes previous foldl_XXX versions, add_frees,
wenzelm@17408
  1981
add_vars etc. have been adapted as well: INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17408
  1982
wenzelm@16151
  1983
* Pure: name spaces have been refined, with significant changes of the
wenzelm@16234
  1984
internal interfaces -- INCOMPATIBILITY.  Renamed cond_extern(_table)
wenzelm@16234
  1985
to extern(_table).  The plain name entry path is superceded by a
wenzelm@16234
  1986
general 'naming' context, which also includes the 'policy' to produce
wenzelm@16234
  1987
a fully qualified name and external accesses of a fully qualified
wenzelm@16234
  1988
name; NameSpace.extend is superceded by context dependent
wenzelm@16234
  1989
Sign.declare_name.  Several theory and proof context operations modify
wenzelm@16234
  1990
the naming context.  Especially note Theory.restore_naming and
wenzelm@16234
  1991
ProofContext.restore_naming to get back to a sane state; note that
wenzelm@16234
  1992
Theory.add_path is no longer sufficient to recover from
wenzelm@16234
  1993
Theory.absolute_path in particular.
wenzelm@16234
  1994
wenzelm@16234
  1995
* Pure: new flags short_names (default false) and unique_names
wenzelm@16234
  1996
(default true) for controlling output of qualified names.  If
wenzelm@16234
  1997
short_names is set, names are printed unqualified.  If unique_names is
wenzelm@16234
  1998
reset, the name prefix is reduced to the minimum required to achieve
wenzelm@16234
  1999
the original result when interning again, even if there is an overlap
wenzelm@16234
  2000
with earlier declarations.
wenzelm@16151
  2001
wenzelm@16456
  2002
* Pure/TheoryDataFun: change of the argument structure; 'prep_ext' is
wenzelm@16456
  2003
now 'extend', and 'merge' gets an additional Pretty.pp argument
wenzelm@16456
  2004
(useful for printing error messages).  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@16456
  2005
wenzelm@16456
  2006
* Pure: major reorganization of the theory context.  Type Sign.sg and
wenzelm@16456
  2007
Theory.theory are now identified, referring to the universal
wenzelm@16456
  2008
Context.theory (see Pure/context.ML).  Actual signature and theory
wenzelm@16456
  2009
content is managed as theory data.  The old code and interfaces were
wenzelm@16456
  2010
spread over many files and structures; the new arrangement introduces
wenzelm@16456
  2011
considerable INCOMPATIBILITY to gain more clarity:
wenzelm@16456
  2012
wenzelm@16456
  2013
  Context -- theory management operations (name, identity, inclusion,
wenzelm@16456
  2014
    parents, ancestors, merge, etc.), plus generic theory data;
wenzelm@16456
  2015
wenzelm@16456
  2016
  Sign -- logical signature and syntax operations (declaring consts,
wenzelm@16456
  2017
    types, etc.), plus certify/read for common entities;
wenzelm@16456
  2018
wenzelm@16456
  2019
  Theory -- logical theory operations (stating axioms, definitions,
wenzelm@16456
  2020
    oracles), plus a copy of logical signature operations (consts,
wenzelm@16456
  2021
    types, etc.); also a few basic management operations (Theory.copy,
wenzelm@16456
  2022
    Theory.merge, etc.)
wenzelm@16456
  2023
wenzelm@16456
  2024
The most basic sign_of operations (Theory.sign_of, Thm.sign_of_thm
wenzelm@16456
  2025
etc.) as well as the sign field in Thm.rep_thm etc. have been retained
wenzelm@16456
  2026
for convenience -- they merely return the theory.
wenzelm@16456
  2027
wenzelm@17193
  2028
* Pure: type Type.tsig is superceded by theory in most interfaces.
wenzelm@17193
  2029
wenzelm@16547
  2030
* Pure: the Isar proof context type is already defined early in Pure
wenzelm@16547
  2031
as Context.proof (note that ProofContext.context and Proof.context are
wenzelm@16547
  2032
aliases, where the latter is the preferred name).  This enables other
wenzelm@16547
  2033
Isabelle components to refer to that type even before Isar is present.
wenzelm@16547
  2034
wenzelm@16373
  2035
* Pure/sign/theory: discontinued named name spaces (i.e. classK,
wenzelm@16373
  2036
typeK, constK, axiomK, oracleK), but provide explicit operations for
wenzelm@16373
  2037
any of these kinds.  For example, Sign.intern typeK is now
wenzelm@16373
  2038
Sign.intern_type, Theory.hide_space Sign.typeK is now
wenzelm@16373
  2039
Theory.hide_types.  Also note that former
wenzelm@16373
  2040
Theory.hide_classes/types/consts are now
wenzelm@16373
  2041
Theory.hide_classes_i/types_i/consts_i, while the non '_i' versions
wenzelm@16373
  2042
internalize their arguments!  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@16373
  2043
wenzelm@16506
  2044
* Pure: get_thm interface (of PureThy and ProofContext) expects
wenzelm@16506
  2045
datatype thmref (with constructors Name and NameSelection) instead of
wenzelm@16506
  2046
plain string -- INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@16506
  2047
wenzelm@16151
  2048
* Pure: cases produced by proof methods specify options, where NONE
wenzelm@16234
  2049
means to remove case bindings -- INCOMPATIBILITY in
wenzelm@16234
  2050
(RAW_)METHOD_CASES.
wenzelm@16151
  2051
wenzelm@16373
  2052
* Pure: the following operations retrieve axioms or theorems from a

* Pure: print_tac now outputs the goal through the trace channel.
wenzelm@16718
  2061
wenzelm@17408
  2062
* Isar toplevel: improved diagnostics, mostly for Poly/ML only.
wenzelm@17408
  2063
Reference Toplevel.debug (default false) controls detailed printing
wenzelm@17408
  2064
and tracing of low-level exceptions; Toplevel.profiling (default 0)
wenzelm@17408
  2065
controls execution profiling -- set to 1 for time and 2 for space
wenzelm@17408
  2066
(both increase the runtime).
wenzelm@17408
  2067
wenzelm@17408
  2068
* Isar session: The initial use of ROOT.ML is now always timed,
wenzelm@17408
  2069
i.e. the log will show the actual process times, in contrast to the
wenzelm@17408
  2070
elapsed wall-clock time that the outer shell wrapper produces.
wenzelm@17408
  2071
wenzelm@17408
  2072
* Simplifier: improved handling of bound variables (nameless
wenzelm@16997
  2073
representation, avoid allocating new strings).  Simprocs that invoke
wenzelm@16997
  2074
the Simplifier recursively should use Simplifier.inherit_bounds to
wenzelm@17720
  2075
avoid local name clashes.  Failure to do so produces warnings
wenzelm@17720
  2076
"Simplifier: renamed bound variable ..."; set Simplifier.debug_bounds
wenzelm@17720
  2077
for further details.
wenzelm@16234
  2078
wenzelm@17166
  2079
* ML functions legacy_bindings and use_legacy_bindings produce ML fact
wenzelm@17166
  2080
bindings for all theorems stored within a given theory; this may help
wenzelm@17166
  2081
in porting non-Isar theories to Isar ones, while keeping ML proof
wenzelm@17166
  2082
scripts for the time being.
wenzelm@17166
  2083
wenzelm@17457
  2084
* ML operator HTML.with_charset specifies the charset begin used for
wenzelm@17457
  2085
generated HTML files.  For example:
wenzelm@17457
  2086
wenzelm@17457
  2087
  HTML.with_charset "utf-8" use_thy "Hebrew";
wenzelm@17538
  2088
  HTML.with_charset "utf-8" use_thy "Chinese";

wenzelm@16234
  2094
isabelle, isatool etc.).
wenzelm@16234
  2095
wenzelm@16234
  2096
* ISABELLE_DOC_FORMAT setting specifies preferred document format (for
wenzelm@16234
  2097
isatool doc, isatool mkdir, display_drafts etc.).
wenzelm@16234
  2098
wenzelm@16234
  2099
* isatool usedir: option -f allows specification of the ML file to be
wenzelm@16234
  2100
used by Isabelle; default is ROOT.ML.
wenzelm@16234
  2101
wenzelm@16251
  2102
* New isatool version outputs the version identifier of the Isabelle
wenzelm@16251
  2103
distribution being used.
wenzelm@16251
  2104
wenzelm@16251
  2105
* HOL: new isatool dimacs2hol converts files in DIMACS CNF format
wenzelm@16234
  2106
(containing Boolean satisfiability problems) into Isabelle/HOL
wenzelm@16234
  2107

ballarin@14398
  2116
* Provers/order.ML:  new efficient reasoner for partial and linear orders.
ballarin@14398
  2117
  Replaces linorder.ML.
ballarin@14398
  2118
wenzelm@14606
  2119
* Pure: Greek letters (except small lambda, \<lambda>), as well as Gothic
wenzelm@14606
  2120
  (\<aa>...\<zz>\<AA>...\<ZZ>), calligraphic (\<A>...\<Z>), and Euler
skalberg@14173
  2121
  (\<a>...\<z>), are now considered normal letters, and can therefore
skalberg@14173
  2122
  be used anywhere where an ASCII letter (a...zA...Z) has until
skalberg@14173
  2123
  now. COMPATIBILITY: This obviously changes the parsing of some
skalberg@14173
  2124
  terms, especially where a symbol has been used as a binder, say
skalberg@14173
  2125
  '\<Pi>x. ...', which is now a type error since \<Pi>x will be parsed
skalberg@14173
  2126
  as an identifier.  Fix it by inserting a space around former
skalberg@14173
  2127
  symbols.  Call 'isatool fixgreek' to try to fix parsing errors in
skalberg@14173
  2128
  existing theory and ML files.
skalberg@14171
  2129
paulson@14237
  2130
* Pure: Macintosh and Windows line-breaks are now allowed in theory files.
paulson@14237
  2131
wenzelm@14731
  2132
* Pure: single letter sub/superscripts (\<^isub> and \<^isup>) are now
wenzelm@14731
  2133
  allowed in identifiers. Similar to Greek letters \<^isub> is now considered
wenzelm@14731
  2134
  a normal (but invisible) letter. For multiple letter subscripts repeat
wenzelm@14731
  2135
  \<^isub> like this: x\<^isub>1\<^isub>2.
kleing@14233
  2136
kleing@14333
  2137
* Pure: There are now sub-/superscripts that can span more than one
kleing@14333
  2138
  character. Text between \<^bsub> and \<^esub> is set in subscript in
wenzelm@14606
  2139
  ProofGeneral and LaTeX, text between \<^bsup> and \<^esup> in
wenzelm@14606
  2140
  superscript. The new control characters are not identifier parts.
kleing@14333
  2141
schirmer@14561
  2142
* Pure: Control-symbols of the form \<^raw:...> will literally print the
wenzelm@14606
  2143
  content of "..." to the latex file instead of \isacntrl... . The "..."
wenzelm@14606
  2144
  may consist of any printable characters excluding the end bracket >.
schirmer@14361
  2145
paulson@14237
  2146
* Pure: Using new Isar command "finalconsts" (or the ML functions
paulson@14237
  2147
  Theory.add_finals or Theory.add_finals_i) it is now possible to
paulson@14237
  2148
  declare constants "final", which prevents their being given a definition
paulson@14237
  2149
  later.  It is useful for constants whose behaviour is fixed axiomatically
skalberg@14224
  2150
  rather than definitionally, such as the meta-logic connectives.
skalberg@14224
  2151
wenzelm@14606
  2152
* Pure: 'instance' now handles general arities with general sorts
wenzelm@14606
  2153
  (i.e. intersections of classes),
skalberg@14503
  2154
kleing@14547
  2155
* Presentation: generated HTML now uses a CSS style sheet to make layout
wenzelm@14731
  2156
  (somewhat) independent of content. It is copied from lib/html/isabelle.css.
kleing@14547
  2157
  It can be changed to alter the colors/layout of generated pages.

*** Isar ***
ballarin@14175
  2161
ballarin@14508
  2162
* Tactic emulation methods rule_tac, erule_tac, drule_tac, frule_tac,
ballarin@14508
  2163
  cut_tac, subgoal_tac and thin_tac:
ballarin@14175
  2164
  - Now understand static (Isar) contexts.  As a consequence, users of Isar
ballarin@14175
  2165
    locales are no longer forced to write Isar proof scripts.
ballarin@14175
  2166
    For details see Isar Reference Manual, paragraph 4.3.2: Further tactic
ballarin@14175
  2167
    emulations.
ballarin@14175
  2168
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: names of variables to be instantiated may no
ballarin@14211
  2169
    longer be enclosed in quotes.  Instead, precede variable name with `?'.
ballarin@14211
  2170
    This is consistent with the instantiation attribute "where".
ballarin@14211
  2171
ballarin@14257
  2172
* Attributes "where" and "of":
ballarin@14285
  2173
  - Now take type variables of instantiated theorem into account when reading
ballarin@14285
  2174
    the instantiation string.  This fixes a bug that caused instantiated
ballarin@14285
  2175
    theorems to have too special types in some circumstances.
ballarin@14285
  2176
  - "where" permits explicit instantiations of type variables.
ballarin@14257
  2177
wenzelm@14556
  2178
* Calculation commands "moreover" and "also" no longer interfere with
wenzelm@14556
  2179
  current facts ("this"), admitting arbitrary combinations with "then"
wenzelm@14556
  2180
  and derived forms.
kleing@14283
  2181
ballarin@14211
  2182
* Locales:
ballarin@14211
  2183
  - Goal statements involving the context element "includes" no longer
ballarin@14211
  2184
    generate theorems with internal delta predicates (those ending on
ballarin@14211
  2185
    "_axioms") in the premise.
ballarin@14211
  2186
    Resolve particular premise with <locale>.intro to obtain old form.
ballarin@14211
  2187
  - Fixed bug in type inference ("unify_frozen") that prevented mix of target
ballarin@14211
  2188
    specification and "includes" elements in goal statement.
ballarin@14254
  2189
  - Rule sets <locale>.intro and <locale>.axioms no longer declared as
ballarin@14254
  2190
    [intro?] and [elim?] (respectively) by default.
ballarin@14508
  2191
  - Experimental command for instantiation of locales in proof contexts:
ballarin@14551
  2192
        instantiate <label>[<attrs>]: <loc>
ballarin@14508
  2193
    Instantiates locale <loc> and adds all its theorems to the current context
ballarin@14551
  2194
    taking into account their attributes.  Label and attrs are optional
ballarin@14551
  2195
    modifiers, like in theorem declarations.  If present, names of
ballarin@14551
  2196
    instantiated theorems are qualified with <label>, and the attributes
ballarin@14551
  2197
    <attrs> are applied after any attributes these theorems might have already.
ballarin@14551
  2198
      If the locale has assumptions, a chained fact of the form
ballarin@14508
  2199
    "<loc> t1 ... tn" is expected from which instantiations of the parameters
ballarin@14551
  2200
    are derived.  The command does not support old-style locales declared
ballarin@14551
  2201
    with "locale (open)".
ballarin@14551
  2202
      A few (very simple) examples can be found in FOL/ex/LocaleInst.thy.
ballarin@14175
  2203
ballarin@14175
  2204
* HOL: Tactic emulation methods induct_tac and case_tac understand static
ballarin@14175
  2205
  (Isar) contexts.

kleing@14136
  2209
kleing@14624
  2210
* Proof import: new image HOL4 contains the imported library from
kleing@14624
  2211
  the HOL4 system with about 2500 theorems. It is imported by
kleing@14624
  2212
  replaying proof terms produced by HOL4 in Isabelle. The HOL4 image
kleing@14624
  2213
  can be used like any other Isabelle image.  See
kleing@14624
  2214
  HOL/Import/HOL/README for more information.
kleing@14624
  2215
ballarin@14398
  2216
* Simplifier:
ballarin@14398
  2217
  - Much improved handling of linear and partial orders.
ballarin@14398
  2218
    Reasoners for linear and partial orders are set up for type classes
ballarin@14398
  2219
    "linorder" and "order" respectively, and are added to the default simpset
ballarin@14398
  2220
    as solvers.  This means that the simplifier can build transitivity chains
ballarin@14398
  2221
    to solve goals from the assumptions.
ballarin@14398
  2222
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: old proofs break occasionally.  Typically, applications
ballarin@14398
  2223
    of blast or auto after simplification become unnecessary because the goal
ballarin@14398
  2224
    is solved by simplification already.
ballarin@14398
  2225
wenzelm@14731
  2226
* Numerics: new theory Ring_and_Field contains over 250 basic numerical laws,
paulson@14389
  2227
    all proved in axiomatic type classes for semirings, rings and fields.
paulson@14389
  2228
paulson@14389
  2229
* Numerics:
paulson@14389
  2230
  - Numeric types (nat, int, and in HOL-Complex rat, real, complex, etc.) are
wenzelm@14731
  2231
    now formalized using the Ring_and_Field theory mentioned above.
paulson@14389
  2232
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: simplification and arithmetic behaves somewhat differently
paulson@14389
  2233
    than before, because now they are set up once in a generic manner.
wenzelm@14731
  2234
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: many type-specific arithmetic laws have gone.
paulson@14480
  2235
    Look for the general versions in Ring_and_Field (and Power if they concern
paulson@14480
  2236
    exponentiation).
paulson@14389
  2237
paulson@14401
  2238
* Type "rat" of the rational numbers is now available in HOL-Complex.
paulson@14389
  2239
schirmer@14255
  2240
* Records:
schirmer@14255
  2241
  - Record types are now by default printed with their type abbreviation
schirmer@14255
  2242
    instead of the list of all field types. This can be configured via
schirmer@14255
  2243
    the reference "print_record_type_abbr".
wenzelm@14731
  2244
  - Simproc "record_upd_simproc" for simplification of multiple updates added
schirmer@14255
  2245
    (not enabled by default).
schirmer@14427
  2246
  - Simproc "record_ex_sel_eq_simproc" to simplify EX x. sel r = x resp.
schirmer@14427
  2247
    EX x. x = sel r to True (not enabled by default).
schirmer@14255
  2248
  - Tactic "record_split_simp_tac" to split and simplify records added.
wenzelm@14731
  2249
kleing@14136
  2250
* 'specification' command added, allowing for definition by
skalberg@14224
  2251
  specification.  There is also an 'ax_specification' command that
skalberg@14224
  2252
  introduces the new constants axiomatically.
kleing@14136
  2253
nipkow@14375

  2256
* HOL-Algebra: new locale "ring" for non-commutative rings.
ballarin@14399
  2257
paulson@14243
  2258
* HOL-ex: InductiveInvariant_examples illustrates advanced recursive function

  2259
  definitions, thanks to Sava Krsti\'{c} and John Matthews.
kleing@14610
  2260
wenzelm@14731
  2261
* HOL-Matrix: a first theory for matrices in HOL with an application of
kleing@14610
  2262
  matrix theory to linear programming.
kleing@14136
  2263
nipkow@14380
  2264
* Unions and Intersections:
nipkow@15119
  2265
  The latex output syntax of UN and INT has been changed
nipkow@15119
  2266
  from "\Union x \in A. B" to "\Union_{x \in A} B"
nipkow@15119
  2267
  i.e. the index formulae has become a subscript.
nipkow@15119
  2268
  Similarly for "\Union x. B", and for \Inter instead of \Union.
nipkow@14380
  2269
kleing@14418
  2270
* Unions and Intersections over Intervals:
wenzelm@14731
  2271
  There is new short syntax "UN i<=n. A" for "UN i:{0..n}. A". There is
wenzelm@14731
  2272
  also an x-symbol version with subscripts "\<Union>\<^bsub>i <= n\<^esub>. A"
kleing@14418
  2273
  like in normal math, and corresponding versions for < and for intersection.
kleing@14418
  2274
nipkow@15677
  2275
* HOL/List: Ordering "lexico" is renamed "lenlex" and the standard
nipkow@15677
  2276
  lexicographic dictonary ordering has been added as "lexord".
nipkow@15677
  2277
paulson@14401
  2278
* ML: the legacy theory structures Int and List have been removed. They had
paulson@14401
  2279
  conflicted with ML Basis Library structures having the same names.
nipkow@14380
  2280
webertj@14464
  2281
* 'refute' command added to search for (finite) countermodels.  Only works
webertj@14464
  2282
  for a fragment of HOL.  The installation of an external SAT solver is
webertj@14464
  2283
  highly recommended.  See "HOL/Refute.thy" for details.
webertj@14464
  2284
berghofe@14602
  2285
* 'quickcheck' command: Allows to find counterexamples by evaluating
berghofe@14602
  2286
  formulae under an assignment of free variables to random values.
berghofe@14602
  2287
  In contrast to 'refute', it can deal with inductive datatypes,
berghofe@14602
  2288
  but cannot handle quantifiers. See "HOL/ex/Quickcheck_Examples.thy"
berghofe@14602
  2289
  for examples.

nipkow@13781
  2305
  - Completely reimplemented method simp (ML: Asm_full_simp_tac):
berghofe@13618
  2306
    Assumptions are now subject to complete mutual simplification,
berghofe@13618
  2307
    not just from left to right. The simplifier now preserves
berghofe@13618
  2308
    the order of assumptions.
berghofe@13618
  2309
berghofe@13618
  2310
    Potential INCOMPATIBILITY:
berghofe@13618
  2311
nipkow@13781
  2312
    -- simp sometimes diverges where the old version did
nipkow@13781
  2313
       not, e.g. invoking simp on the goal
berghofe@13618
  2314
berghofe@13618

berghofe@13618
  2316
nipkow@13781

       Using "simp (asm_lr)" (ML: Asm_lr_simp_tac) instead often solves this

nipkow@13781
  2324
    -- Tactics combining classical reasoner and simplification (such as auto)
nipkow@13781
  2325
       are also affected by this change, because many of them rely on
nipkow@13781
  2326
       simp. They may sometimes diverge as well or yield a different numbers
nipkow@13781
  2327
       of subgoals. Try to use e.g. force, fastsimp, or safe instead of auto
nipkow@13781
  2328
       in case of problems. Sometimes subsequent calls to the classical
nipkow@13781
  2329
       reasoner will fail because a preceeding call to the simplifier too
nipkow@13781
  2330
       eagerly simplified the goal, e.g. deleted redundant premises.
berghofe@13618
  2331
berghofe@13618
  2332
  - The simplifier trace now shows the names of the applied rewrite rules
berghofe@13618
  2333
nipkow@13829
  2334
  - You can limit the number of recursive invocations of the simplifier
nipkow@13829
  2335
    during conditional rewriting (where the simplifie tries to solve the
nipkow@13829
  2336
    conditions before applying the rewrite rule):
nipkow@13829
  2337
    ML "simp_depth_limit := n"
nipkow@13829
  2338
    where n is an integer. Thus you can force termination where previously
nipkow@13829
  2339
    the simplifier would diverge.

nipkow@13815
  2356
rules whose conclusion matches subgoal 1:
nipkow@13815
  2357
      PG menu: Isabelle/Isar -> Show me -> matching rules
nipkow@13815
  2358
The rules are ordered by how closely they match the subgoal.
nipkow@13815
  2359
In particular, rules that solve a subgoal outright are displayed first
nipkow@13815

  2361
(ML: ProofGeneral.print_intros())
nipkow@13815

* Pure: New flag trace_unify_fail causes unification to print
nipkow@13781
  2364
diagnostic information (PG: in trace buffer) when it fails. This is
nipkow@13781
  2365
useful for figuring out why single step proofs like rule, erule or

nipkow@13781
  2367
nipkow@13815
  2368
* Pure: Locale specifications now produce predicate definitions
wenzelm@13410
  2369
according to the body of text (covering assumptions modulo local
wenzelm@13410
  2370
definitions); predicate "loc_axioms" covers newly introduced text,
wenzelm@13410
  2371
while "loc" is cumulative wrt. all included locale expressions; the
wenzelm@13410
  2372
latter view is presented only on export into the global theory
wenzelm@13410
  2373

  2374
on the old view without predicates;
wenzelm@13410
  2375
wenzelm@13459
  2376
* Pure: predefined locales "var" and "struct" are useful for sharing
wenzelm@13459
  2377
parameters (as in CASL, for example); just specify something like
wenzelm@13459
  2378
``var x + var y + struct M'' as import;
wenzelm@13459
  2379
wenzelm@13463
  2380
* Pure: improved thms_containing: proper indexing of facts instead of
wenzelm@13463
  2381
raw theorems; check validity of results wrt. current name space;
wenzelm@13463
  2382
include local facts of proof configuration (also covers active
wenzelm@13541
  2383
locales), cover fixed variables in index; may use "_" in term
wenzelm@13541
  2384
specification; an optional limit for the number of printed facts may
wenzelm@13541
  2385
be given (the default is 40);
wenzelm@13541
  2386
wenzelm@13541
  2387
* Pure: disallow duplicate fact bindings within new-style theory files

  2388
(batch-mode only);
wenzelm@13540
  2389
wenzelm@13463

* Provers: improved induct method: assumptions introduced by case
wenzelm@13463
  2391
"foo" are split into "foo.hyps" (from the rule) and "foo.prems" (from
wenzelm@13463
  2392
the goal statement); "foo" still refers to all facts collectively;
wenzelm@13463
  2393
paulson@13550
  2394
* Provers: the function blast.overloaded has been removed: all constants
paulson@13550
  2395
are regarded as potentially overloaded, which improves robustness in exchange
paulson@13550
  2396
for slight decrease in efficiency;

wenzelm@12280
  2556
  - 'case' command admits impromptu naming of parameters (such as
wenzelm@12280
  2557
    "case (Suc n)");
wenzelm@12280
  2558
  - 'induct' method divinates rule instantiation from the inductive
wenzelm@12280
  2559
    claim; no longer requires excessive ?P bindings for proper
wenzelm@12280
  2560
    instantiation of cases;
wenzelm@12280
  2561
  - 'induct' method properly enumerates all possibilities of set/type
wenzelm@12280
  2562
    rules; as a consequence facts may be also passed through *type*
wenzelm@12280
  2563
    rules without further ado;
wenzelm@12280
  2564
  - 'induct' method now derives symbolic cases from the *rulified*
wenzelm@12280
  2565
    rule (before it used to rulify cases stemming from the internal
wenzelm@12280
  2566
    atomized version); this means that the context of a non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
  2567
    statement becomes is included in the hypothesis, avoiding the
wenzelm@12280
  2568
    slightly cumbersome show "PROP ?case" form;
wenzelm@12280
  2569
  - 'induct' may now use elim-style induction rules without chaining
wenzelm@12280
  2570
    facts, using ``missing'' premises from the goal state; this allows
wenzelm@12280
  2571
    rules stemming from inductive sets to be applied in unstructured
wenzelm@12280
  2572
    scripts, while still benefitting from proper handling of non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
  2573
    statements; NB: major inductive premises need to be put first, all
wenzelm@12280
  2574
    the rest of the goal is passed through the induction;
wenzelm@12280
  2575
  - 'induct' proper support for mutual induction involving non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
  2576
    rule statements (uses the new concept of simultaneous goals, see
wenzelm@12280
  2577
    below);
wenzelm@12853
  2578
  - append all possible rule selections, but only use the first
wenzelm@12853
  2579
    success (no backtracking);
wenzelm@11995
  2580
  - removed obsolete "(simplified)" and "(stripped)" options of methods;
wenzelm@12754
  2581
  - undeclared rule case names default to numbers 1, 2, 3, ...;
wenzelm@12754
  2582
  - added 'print_induct_rules' (covered by help item in recent Proof
wenzelm@12754
  2583
    General versions);
wenzelm@11995
  2584
  - moved induct/cases attributes to Pure, methods to Provers;
wenzelm@11995
  2585
  - generic method setup instantiated for FOL and HOL;
wenzelm@11986
  2586
wenzelm@12163
