*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES (see below for more details) ***
wenzelm@4842
     9
wenzelm@5217
    10
* several changes of proof tools;
wenzelm@5207
    11
wenzelm@5373
    12
* HOL: new version of inductive and datatype;
wenzelm@5373
    13
wenzelm@5217
    14
* HOL: major changes to the inductive and datatype packages;
berghofe@5214
    15
wenzelm@5217
    16
* HOL: renamed r^-1 to 'converse' from 'inverse'; `inj_onto' is now
wenzelm@5217
    17
called `inj_on';
paulson@5160
    18
nipkow@5275
    19
* HOL: removed duplicate thms in Arith:
nipkow@5275
    20
  less_imp_add_less  should be replaced by  trans_less_add1
nipkow@5275
    21
  le_imp_add_le      should be replaced by  trans_le_add1
paulson@5160
    22
paulson@5490
    23
* HOL: unary - is now overloaded (new type constraints may be required);
paulson@5490
    24
paulson@5541
    25
* HOL and ZF: unary minus for integers is now #- instead of #~.  In ZF, 
paulson@5541
    26
  expressions such as n#-1 must be changed to n#- 1, since #-1 is now taken
paulson@5541
    27
  as an integer constant.
paulson@5541
    28
wenzelm@5397
    29
* Pure: ML function 'theory_of' replaced by 'theory';
wenzelm@5397
    30
wenzelm@5363
    31
wenzelm@5127
    32
*** Proof tools ***
nipkow@4880
    33
paulson@5075
    34
* Simplifier: Asm_full_simp_tac is now more aggressive.
nipkow@4880
    35
  1. It will sometimes reorient premises if that increases their power to
nipkow@4880
    36
     simplify.
nipkow@4880
    37
  2. It does no longer proceed strictly from left to right but may also
nipkow@4880
    38
     rotate premises to achieve further simplification.
nipkow@4880
    39
  For compatibility reasons there is now Asm_lr_simp_tac which is like the
nipkow@4880
    40
  old Asm_full_simp_tac in that it does not rotate premises.
nipkow@4880
    41
wenzelm@5127
    42
* Classical reasoner: wrapper mechanism for the classical reasoner now
wenzelm@5127
    43
allows for selected deletion of wrappers, by introduction of names for
wenzelm@5127
    44
wrapper functionals.  This implies that addbefore, addSbefore,
wenzelm@5127
    45
addaltern, and addSaltern now take a pair (name, tactic) as argument,
wenzelm@5127
    46
and that adding two tactics with the same name overwrites the first
wenzelm@5127
    47
one (emitting a warning).
oheimb@4824
    48
  type wrapper = (int -> tactic) -> (int -> tactic)
oheimb@4649
    49
  setWrapper, setSWrapper, compWrapper and compSWrapper are replaced by
oheimb@4824
    50
  addWrapper, addSWrapper: claset * (string * wrapper) -> claset
oheimb@4824
    51
  delWrapper, delSWrapper: claset *  string            -> claset
oheimb@4649
    52
  getWrapper is renamed to appWrappers, getSWrapper to appSWrappers;
oheimb@4649
    53
oheimb@5524
    54
* Classical reasoner: addbefore / addSbefore now have APPEND / ORELSE semantics;
oheimb@5524
    55
  addbefore now affects only the unsafe part of step_tac etc.;
oheimb@5524
    56
  This affects addss/auto_tac/force_tac, so EXISTING (INSTABLE) PROOFS MAY FAIL, but
oheimb@5524
    57
  most proofs should be fixable easily, e.g. by replacing Auto_tac by Force_tac.
oheimb@5524
    58
oheimb@5524
    59
* Classical reasoner: setwrapper to setWrapper and compwrapper to compWrapper; 
oheimb@5524
    60
  added safe wrapper (and access functions for it);
oheimb@5524
    61
wenzelm@5127
    62
* HOL/split_all_tac is now much faster and fails if there is nothing
wenzelm@5127
    63
to split.  Existing (fragile) proofs may require adaption because the
wenzelm@5127
    64
order and the names of the automatically generated variables have
wenzelm@5127
    65
changed.  split_all_tac has moved within claset() from unsafe wrappers
wenzelm@5127
    66
to safe wrappers, which means that !!-bound variables are split much
wenzelm@5127
    67
more aggressively, and safe_tac and clarify_tac now split such
wenzelm@5127
    68
variables.  If this splitting is not appropriate, use delSWrapper
wenzelm@5127
    69
"split_all_tac".
wenzelm@5127
    70
wenzelm@5127
    71
* HOL/Simplifier:
wenzelm@5127
    72
wenzelm@5127
    73
 - Rewrite rules for case distinctions can now be added permanently to
wenzelm@5127
    74
   the default simpset using Addsplits just like Addsimps. They can be
wenzelm@5127
    75
   removed via Delsplits just like Delsimps. Lower-case versions are
wenzelm@5127
    76
   also available.
wenzelm@5127
    77
wenzelm@5127
    78
 - The rule split_if is now part of the default simpset. This means
wenzelm@5127
    79
   that the simplifier will eliminate all occurrences of if-then-else
wenzelm@5127
    80
   in the conclusion of a goal. To prevent this, you can either remove
wenzelm@5127
    81
   split_if completely from the default simpset by `Delsplits
wenzelm@5127
    82
   [split_if]' or remove it in a specific call of the simplifier using
wenzelm@5127
    83
   `... delsplits [split_if]'.  You can also add/delete other case
wenzelm@5127
    84
   splitting rules to/from the default simpset: every datatype
wenzelm@5127
    85
   generates suitable rules `split_t_case' and `split_t_case_asm'
wenzelm@5127
    86
   (where t is the name of the datatype).
wenzelm@5127
    87
wenzelm@5127
    88
* Classical reasoner - Simplifier combination: new force_tac (and
wenzelm@5127
    89
derivatives Force_tac, force) combines rewriting and classical
wenzelm@5127
    90
reasoning (and whatever other tools) similarly to auto_tac, but is
wenzelm@5127
    91
aimed to solve the given subgoal completely;
wenzelm@5127
    92
wenzelm@5127
    93
wenzelm@5127
    94
*** General ***
wenzelm@5127
    95
wenzelm@5217
    96
* new top-level commands `Goal' and `Goalw' that improve upon `goal'
wenzelm@5127
    97
and `goalw': the theory is no longer needed as an explicit argument -
wenzelm@5127
    98
the current theory context is used; assumptions are no longer returned
wenzelm@5127
    99
at the ML-level unless one of them starts with ==> or !!; it is
wenzelm@5217
   100
recommended to convert to these new commands using isatool fixgoal
wenzelm@5217
   101
(backup your sources first!);
wenzelm@4842
   102
wenzelm@5217
   103
* new top-level commands 'thm' and 'thms' for retrieving theorems from
wenzelm@5207
   104
the current theory context, and 'theory' to lookup stored theories;
paulson@4806
   105
wenzelm@5127
   106
* new theory section 'nonterminals' for purely syntactic types;
wenzelm@4858
   107
wenzelm@5127
   108
* new theory section 'setup' for generic ML setup functions
wenzelm@5127
   109
(e.g. package initialization);
wenzelm@4869
   110
wenzelm@5131
   111
* the distribution now includes Isabelle icons: see
wenzelm@5131
   112
lib/logo/isabelle-{small,tiny}.xpm;
wenzelm@5131
   113
wenzelm@5363
   114
* isatool install - install binaries with absolute references to
wenzelm@5363
   115
ISABELLE_HOME/bin;
wenzelm@5363
   116
wenzelm@5572
   117
* isatool logo -- create instances of the Isabelle logo (as EPS);
wenzelm@5572
   118
wenzelm@5407
   119
* print mode 'emacs' reserved for Isamode;
wenzelm@5407
   120
wenzelm@4711
   121
paulson@4661
   122
*** HOL ***
paulson@4661
   123
wenzelm@5217
   124
* HOL/inductive package reorganized and improved: now supports mutual
paulson@5267
   125
definitions such as
wenzelm@5217
   126
wenzelm@5217
   127
  inductive EVEN ODD
wenzelm@5217
   128
    intrs
wenzelm@5217
   129
      null "0 : EVEN"
wenzelm@5217
   130
      oddI "n : EVEN ==> Suc n : ODD"
wenzelm@5217
   131
      evenI "n : ODD ==> Suc n : EVEN"
wenzelm@5217
   132
wenzelm@5217
   133
new theorem list "elims" contains an elimination rule for each of the
wenzelm@5217
   134
recursive sets; inductive definitions now handle disjunctive premises
wenzelm@5217
   135
correctly (also ZF);
berghofe@5214
   136
wenzelm@5217
   137
INCOMPATIBILITIES: requires Inductive as an ancestor; component
wenzelm@5217
   138
"mutual_induct" no longer exists - the induction rule is always
wenzelm@5217
   139
contained in "induct";
wenzelm@5217
   140
wenzelm@5217
   141
wenzelm@5217
   142
* HOL/datatype package re-implemented and greatly improved: now
paulson@5267
   143
supports mutually recursive datatypes such as
wenzelm@5217
   144
wenzelm@5217
   145
  datatype
wenzelm@5217
   146
    'a aexp = IF_THEN_ELSE ('a bexp) ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
   147
            | SUM ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
   148
            | DIFF ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
   149
            | NUM 'a
wenzelm@5217
   150
  and
wenzelm@5217
   151
    'a bexp = LESS ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
   152
            | AND ('a bexp) ('a bexp)
wenzelm@5217
   153
            | OR ('a bexp) ('a bexp)
wenzelm@5217
   154
paulson@5267
   155
as well as indirectly recursive datatypes such as
berghofe@5214
   156
wenzelm@5217
   157
  datatype
wenzelm@5217
   158
    ('a, 'b) term = Var 'a
wenzelm@5217
   159
                  | App 'b ((('a, 'b) term) list)
berghofe@5214
   160
wenzelm@5217
   161
The new tactic  mutual_induct_tac [<var_1>, ..., <var_n>] i  performs
wenzelm@5217
   162
induction on mutually / indirectly recursive datatypes.
wenzelm@5217
   163
wenzelm@5217
   164
Primrec equations are now stored in theory and can be accessed via
wenzelm@5217
   165
<function_name>.simps.
wenzelm@5217
   166
wenzelm@5217
   167
INCOMPATIBILITIES:
berghofe@5214
   168
wenzelm@5217
   169
  - Theories using datatypes must now have theory Datatype as an
wenzelm@5217
   170
    ancestor.
wenzelm@5217
   171
  - The specific <typename>.induct_tac no longer exists - use the
wenzelm@5217
   172
    generic induct_tac instead.
berghofe@5226
   173
  - natE has been renamed to nat.exhaust - use exhaust_tac
wenzelm@5217
   174
    instead of res_inst_tac ... natE. Note that the variable
berghofe@5226
   175
    names in nat.exhaust differ from the names in natE, this
wenzelm@5217
   176
    may cause some "fragile" proofs to fail.
wenzelm@5217
   177
  - The theorems split_<typename>_case and split_<typename>_case_asm
wenzelm@5217
   178
    have been renamed to <typename>.split and <typename>.split_asm.
wenzelm@5217
   179
  - Since default sorts of type variables are now handled correctly,
wenzelm@5217
   180
    some datatype definitions may have to be annotated with explicit
wenzelm@5217
   181
    sort constraints.
wenzelm@5217
   182
  - Primrec definitions no longer require function name and type
wenzelm@5217
   183
    of recursive argument.
berghofe@5214
   184
wenzelm@5217
   185
Consider using isatool fixdatatype to adapt your theories and proof
wenzelm@5217
   186
scripts to the new package (backup your sources first!).
wenzelm@5217
   187
wenzelm@5217
   188
wenzelm@5217
   189
* HOL/record package: now includes concrete syntax for record types,
wenzelm@5217
   190
terms, updates; still lacks important theorems, like surjective
wenzelm@5217
   191
pairing and split;
berghofe@5214
   192
wenzelm@5125
   193
* reorganized the main HOL image: HOL/Integ and String loaded by
wenzelm@5125
   194
default; theory Main includes everything;
wenzelm@5125
   195
oheimb@5526
   196
* added option_map_eq_Some and not_Some_eq to the default simpset and claset;
wenzelm@5127
   197
wenzelm@5127
   198
* added disj_not1 = "(~P | Q) = (P --> Q)" to the default simpset;
wenzelm@5127
   199
wenzelm@5127
   200
* many new identities for unions, intersections, set difference, etc.;
wenzelm@5127
   201
wenzelm@5127
   202
* expand_if, expand_split, expand_sum_case and expand_nat_case are now
wenzelm@5127
   203
called split_if, split_split, split_sum_case and split_nat_case (to go
wenzelm@5127
   204
with add/delsplits);
wenzelm@5125
   205
wenzelm@5127
   206
* HOL/Prod introduces simplification procedure unit_eq_proc rewriting
wenzelm@5127
   207
(?x::unit) = (); this is made part of the default simpset, which COULD
wenzelm@5127
   208
MAKE EXISTING PROOFS FAIL under rare circumstances (consider
wenzelm@5207
   209
'Delsimprocs [unit_eq_proc];' as last resort); also note that
wenzelm@5207
   210
unit_abs_eta_conv is added in order to counter the effect of
wenzelm@5207
   211
unit_eq_proc on (%u::unit. f u), replacing it by f rather than by
wenzelm@5207
   212
%u.f();
wenzelm@5125
   213
wenzelm@5217
   214
* HOL/Fun INCOMPATIBILITY: `inj_onto' is now called `inj_on' (which
wenzelm@5217
   215
makes more sense);
berghofe@5109
   216
paulson@5475
   217
* HOL/Set INCOMPATIBILITY: rule `equals0D' is now a well-formed destruct rule;
paulson@5475
   218
  It and 'sym RS equals0D' are now in the default  claset, giving automatic
paulson@5475
   219
  disjointness reasoning but breaking a few old proofs.
paulson@5267
   220
wenzelm@5217
   221
* HOL/Relation INCOMPATIBILITY: renamed the relational operator r^-1
wenzelm@5217
   222
to 'converse' from 'inverse' (for compatibility with ZF and some
wenzelm@5217
   223
literature);
wenzelm@5085
   224
wenzelm@5127
   225
* HOL/recdef can now declare non-recursive functions, with {} supplied as
wenzelm@5127
   226
the well-founded relation;
oheimb@4838
   227
paulson@5490
   228
* HOL/Set INCOMPATIBILITY: the complement of set A is now written -A instead of
paulson@5490
   229
    Compl A.  The "Compl" syntax remains available as input syntax for this
paulson@5490
   230
    release ONLY.
paulson@5490
   231
wenzelm@5127
   232
* HOL/Update: new theory of function updates:
wenzelm@5127
   233
    f(a:=b) == %x. if x=a then b else f x
wenzelm@5127
   234
may also be iterated as in f(a:=b,c:=d,...);
nipkow@5077
   235
wenzelm@5127
   236
* HOL/Vimage: new theory for inverse image of a function, syntax f-``B;
paulson@4899
   237
nipkow@5282
   238
* HOL/List:
nipkow@5282
   239
  - new function list_update written xs[i:=v] that updates the i-th
nipkow@5282
   240
    list position. May also be iterated as in xs[i:=a,j:=b,...].
nipkow@5428
   241
  - new function `upt' written [i..j(] which generates the list
nipkow@5428
   242
    [i,i+1,...,j-1], i.e. the upper bound is excluded. To include the upper
nipkow@5428
   243
    bound write [i..j], which is a shorthand for [i..j+1(].
nipkow@5282
   244
  - new lexicographic orderings and corresponding wellfoundedness theorems.
paulson@4779
   245
wenzelm@5127
   246
* HOL/Arith:
wenzelm@5127
   247
  - removed 'pred' (predecessor) function;
wenzelm@5127
   248
  - generalized some theorems about n-1;
wenzelm@5127
   249
  - many new laws about "div" and "mod";
wenzelm@5127
   250
  - new laws about greatest common divisors (see theory ex/Primes);
oheimb@4766
   251
wenzelm@5127
   252
* HOL/Relation: renamed the relational operator r^-1 "converse"
wenzelm@4842
   253
instead of "inverse";
wenzelm@4711
   254
wenzelm@5127
   255
* directory HOL/Real: a construction of the reals using Dedekind cuts
wenzelm@5127
   256
(not included by default);
nipkow@4835
   257
wenzelm@5127
   258
* directory HOL/UNITY: Chandy and Misra's UNITY formalism;
wenzelm@4711
   259
paulson@5142
   260
* calling (stac rew i) now fails if "rew" has no effect on the goal
paulson@5142
   261
  [previously, this check worked only if the rewrite rule was unconditional]
paulson@5308
   262
  Now rew can involve either definitions or equalities (either == or =).
wenzelm@5002

wenzelm@5363
   264
paulson@4879
   265
*** ZF ***
paulson@4879
   266
paulson@5332
   267
* theory Main includes everything; INCOMPATIBILITY: theory ZF.thy contains
paulson@5332
   268
  only the theorems proved on ZF.ML;
paulson@5160
   269
paulson@5475
   270
* ZF INCOMPATIBILITY: rule `equals0D' is now a well-formed destruct rule;
paulson@5475
   271
  It and 'sym RS equals0D' are now in the default  claset, giving automatic
paulson@5475
   272
  disjointness reasoning but breaking a few old proofs.
paulson@5267
   273
paulson@5160

* ZF/Update: new theory of function updates
paulson@5160
   275
    with default rewrite rule  f(x:=y) ` z = if(z=x, y, f`z)
paulson@5160
   276
  may also be iterated as in f(a:=b,c:=d,...);
paulson@5160
   277
paulson@4879
   278
* in  let x=t in u(x), neither t nor u(x) has to be an FOL term.
oheimb@4649
   279
paulson@5142
   280
* calling (stac rew i) now fails if "rew" has no effect on the goal
paulson@5142
   281
  [previously, this check worked only if the rewrite rule was unconditional]
paulson@5308
   282
  Now rew can involve either definitions or equalities (either == or =).
paulson@5142
   283
paulson@5160
   284
* case_tac provided for compatibility with HOL
paulson@5160
   285
    (like the old excluded_middle_tac, but with subgoals swapped)

*** Internal programming interfaces ***
wenzelm@5002
   289
wenzelm@5251
   290
* Pure: several new basic modules made available for general use, see
wenzelm@5251
   291
also src/Pure/README;
wenzelm@5207
   292
wenzelm@5008
   293
* improved the theory data mechanism to support encapsulation (data
wenzelm@5008
   294
kind name replaced by private Object.kind, acting as authorization
wenzelm@5373
   295
key); new type-safe user interface via functor TheoryDataFun; generic
wenzelm@5373
   296
print_data function becomes basically useless;
wenzelm@5002
   297
wenzelm@5251
   298
* removed global_names compatibility flag -- all theory declarations
wenzelm@5251
   299
are qualified by default;
wenzelm@5251
   300
wenzelm@5085
   301
* module Pure/Syntax now offers quote / antiquote translation
wenzelm@5085
   302
functions (useful for Hoare logic etc. with implicit dependencies);
wenzelm@5373
   303
see HOL/ex/Antiquote for an example use;
wenzelm@5085
   304
wenzelm@5127
   305
* Simplifier now offers conversions (asm_)(full_)rewrite: simpset ->
wenzelm@5127
   306
cterm -> thm;
wenzelm@5127
   307
wenzelm@5207
   308
* new tactical CHANGED_GOAL for checking that a tactic modifies a
wenzelm@5207
   309
subgoal;
paulson@5142
   310
wenzelm@5251
   311

   318
*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES (see below for more details) ***
wenzelm@4410
   319
wenzelm@4410
   320
* changed lexical syntax of terms / types: dots made part of long
wenzelm@4410
   321
identifiers, e.g. "%x.x" no longer possible, should be "%x. x";
wenzelm@4410
   322
wenzelm@4410
   323
* simpset (and claset) reference variable replaced by functions
wenzelm@4410
   324
simpset / simpset_ref;
wenzelm@4410
   325
wenzelm@4410
   326
* no longer supports theory aliases (via merge) and non-trivial
wenzelm@4410
   327
implicit merge of thms' signatures;
wenzelm@4410
   328
wenzelm@4410
   329
* most internal names of constants changed due to qualified names;
wenzelm@4410
   330
wenzelm@4410
   331
* changed Pure/Sequence interface (see Pure/seq.ML);
wenzelm@4410
   332
wenzelm@3454
   333
paulson@3715
   334
*** General Changes ***
paulson@3715
   335
wenzelm@4174
   336
* hierachically structured name spaces (for consts, types, axms, thms
wenzelm@3943
   337
etc.); new lexical class 'longid' (e.g. Foo.bar.x) may render much of
wenzelm@4108
   338
old input syntactically incorrect (e.g. "%x.x"); COMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@4108
   339
isatool fixdots ensures space after dots (e.g. "%x. x"); set
wenzelm@4174
   340
long_names for fully qualified output names; NOTE: ML programs
wenzelm@4174
   341
(special tactics, packages etc.) referring to internal names may have
wenzelm@4174
   342
to be adapted to cope with fully qualified names; in case of severe
wenzelm@4174
   343
backward campatibility problems try setting 'global_names' at compile
wenzelm@4174
   344
time to have enrything declared within a flat name space; one may also
wenzelm@4174
   345
fine tune name declarations in theories via the 'global' and 'local'
wenzelm@4174
   346
section;
wenzelm@4108
   347
wenzelm@4108
   348
* reimplemented the implicit simpset and claset using the new anytype
wenzelm@4108
   349
data filed in signatures; references simpset:simpset ref etc. are
wenzelm@4108
   350
replaced by functions simpset:unit->simpset and
wenzelm@4108
   351
simpset_ref:unit->simpset ref; COMPATIBILITY: use isatool fixclasimp
wenzelm@4108
   352
to patch your ML files accordingly;
paulson@3856
   353
wenzelm@3857
   354
* HTML output now includes theory graph data for display with Java
wenzelm@3857
   355
applet or isatool browser; data generated automatically via isatool
wenzelm@3901
   356
usedir (see -i option, ISABELLE_USEDIR_OPTIONS);
wenzelm@3857
   357
paulson@3856
   358
* defs may now be conditional; improved rewrite_goals_tac to handle
paulson@3856
   359
conditional equations;
paulson@3856
   360
wenzelm@4174
   361
* defs now admits additional type arguments, using TYPE('a) syntax;
wenzelm@4174
   362
wenzelm@3901
   363
* theory aliases via merge (e.g. M=A+B+C) no longer supported, always
wenzelm@3901
   364
creates a new theory node; implicit merge of thms' signatures is
wenzelm@4112
   365
restricted to 'trivial' ones; COMPATIBILITY: one may have to use
wenzelm@3901
   366
transfer:theory->thm->thm in (rare) cases;
wenzelm@3901
   367
wenzelm@3968
   368
* improved handling of draft signatures / theories; draft thms (and
wenzelm@3968
   369
ctyps, cterms) are automatically promoted to real ones;
wenzelm@3968
   370
wenzelm@3901
   371
* slightly changed interfaces for oracles: admit many per theory, named
wenzelm@3901
   372
(e.g. oracle foo = mlfun), additional name argument for invoke_oracle;
wenzelm@3901
   373
wenzelm@3901
   374
* print_goals: optional output of const types (set show_consts and
wenzelm@3901
   375
show_types);
wenzelm@3851
   376
wenzelm@4388
   377
* improved output of warnings (###) and errors (***);
wenzelm@3697
   378
paulson@4178
   379
* subgoal_tac displays a warning if the new subgoal has type variables;
paulson@4178
   380
paulson@3715
   381
* removed old README and Makefiles;
wenzelm@3697
   382
paulson@3856
   383
* replaced print_goals_ref hook by print_current_goals_fn and result_error_fn;
wenzelm@3670
   384
paulson@3715
   385
* removed obsolete init_pps and init_database;
paulson@3715
   386
paulson@3715
   387
* deleted the obsolete tactical STATE, which was declared by
paulson@3715
   388
    fun STATE tacfun st = tacfun st st;
paulson@3715
   389
wenzelm@4388
   390
* cd and use now support path variables, e.g. $ISABELLE_HOME, or ~
wenzelm@4388
   391
(which abbreviates $HOME);
wenzelm@4269
   392
wenzelm@4269
   393
* changed Pure/Sequence interface (see Pure/seq.ML); COMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@4269
   394
use isatool fixseq to adapt your ML programs (this works for fully
wenzelm@4269
   395
qualified references to the Sequence structure only!);
wenzelm@4269
   396
wenzelm@4381
   397
* use_thy no longer requires writable current directory; it always
wenzelm@4381
   398
reloads .ML *and* .thy file, if either one is out of date;
wenzelm@4269
   399
paulson@3715
   400
paulson@3715
   401
*** Classical Reasoner ***
paulson@3715
   402
wenzelm@3744
   403
* Clarify_tac, clarify_tac, clarify_step_tac, Clarify_step_tac: new
wenzelm@3744
   404
tactics that use classical reasoning to simplify a subgoal without
wenzelm@3744
   405
splitting it into several subgoals;
paulson@3715
   406
paulson@3719
   407
* Safe_tac: like safe_tac but uses the default claset;
paulson@3719
   408
paulson@3715
   409
paulson@3715
   410
*** Simplifier ***
paulson@3715
   411
paulson@3715
   412
* added simplification meta rules:
paulson@3715
   413
    (asm_)(full_)simplify: simpset -> thm -> thm;
paulson@3715
   414
paulson@3715
   415
* simplifier.ML no longer part of Pure -- has to be loaded by object
paulson@3715
   416
logics (again);
paulson@3715
   417
paulson@3715
   418
* added prems argument to simplification procedures;
paulson@3715
   419
paulson@4325
   420
* HOL, FOL, ZF: added infix function `addsplits':
paulson@4325
   421
  instead of `<simpset> setloop (split_tac <thms>)'
paulson@4325
   422
  you can simply write `<simpset> addsplits <thms>'
paulson@4325
   423
paulson@3715
   424
paulson@3715
   425
*** Syntax ***
paulson@3715
   426
wenzelm@4174
   427
* TYPE('a) syntax for type reflection terms;
wenzelm@4174
   428
wenzelm@3985
   429
* no longer handles consts with name "" -- declare as 'syntax' instead;
paulson@3856
   430
paulson@3856
   431
* pretty printer: changed order of mixfix annotation preference (again!);
wenzelm@3846
   432
paulson@3715
   433
* Pure: fixed idt/idts vs. pttrn/pttrns syntactic categories;
paulson@3715
   434
paulson@3715
   435
paulson@3715
   436
*** HOL ***
paulson@3715
   437
oheimb@4207
   438
* HOL: there is a new splitter `split_asm_tac' that can be used e.g. 
oheimb@4189
   439
  with `addloop' of the simplifier to faciliate case splitting in premises.
oheimb@4189
   440
nipkow@4035
   441
* HOL/TLA: Stephan Merz's formalization of Lamport's Temporal Logic of Actions;
wenzelm@3985
   442
wenzelm@3985
   443
* HOL/Auth: new protocol proofs including some for the Internet
nipkow@4035
   444
  protocol TLS;
wenzelm@3985
   445
wenzelm@4125
   446
* HOL/Map: new theory of `maps' a la VDM;
nipkow@3982
   447
wenzelm@4335
   448
* HOL/simplifier: simplification procedures nat_cancel_sums for
wenzelm@4335
   449
cancelling out common nat summands from =, <, <= (in)equalities, or
wenzelm@4335
   450
differences; simplification procedures nat_cancel_factor for
wenzelm@4335
   451
cancelling common factor from =, <, <= (in)equalities over natural
wenzelm@4373
   452
sums; nat_cancel contains both kinds of procedures, it is installed by
wenzelm@4373
   453
default in Arith.thy -- this COULD MAKE EXISTING PROOFS FAIL;
wenzelm@4335
   454
nipkow@3580
   455
* HOL/simplifier: terms of the form
paulson@4325
   456
  `? x. P1(x) & ... & Pn(x) & x=t & Q1(x) & ... Qn(x)'  (or t=x)
nipkow@3580
   457
  are rewritten to
nipkow@4035
   458
  `P1(t) & ... & Pn(t) & Q1(t) & ... Qn(t)',
nipkow@4035
   459
  and those of the form
paulson@4325
   460
  `! x. P1(x) & ... & Pn(x) & x=t & Q1(x) & ... Qn(x) --> R(x)'  (or t=x)
nipkow@4035
   461
  are rewritten to
nipkow@4035
   462
  `P1(t) & ... & Pn(t) & Q1(t) & ... Qn(t) --> R(t)',
nipkow@4035
   463
nipkow@4035
   464
* HOL/datatype
nipkow@4035
   465
  Each datatype `t' now comes with a theorem `split_t_case' of the form
nipkow@3580
   466
nipkow@4035
   467
  P(t_case f1 ... fn x) =
nipkow@4035
   468
     ( (!y1 ... ym1. x = C1 y1 ... ym1 --> P(f1 y1 ... ym1)) &
nipkow@4035
   469
        ...
oheimb@4189
   470
       (!y1 ... ymn. x = Cn y1 ... ymn --> P(f1 y1 ... ymn))
nipkow@4035
   471
     )
nipkow@4035
   472
oheimb@4930
   473
  and a theorem `split_t_case_asm' of the form
oheimb@4189
   474
oheimb@4189
   475
  P(t_case f1 ... fn x) =
oheimb@4189
   476
    ~( (? y1 ... ym1. x = C1 y1 ... ym1 & ~P(f1 y1 ... ym1)) |
oheimb@4189
   477
        ...
oheimb@4189
   478
       (? y1 ... ymn. x = Cn y1 ... ymn & ~P(f1 y1 ... ymn))
oheimb@4189
   479
     )
oheimb@4930
   480
  which can be added to a simpset via `addsplits'. The existing theorems
oheimb@4930
   481
  expand_list_case and expand_option_case have been renamed to
oheimb@4930
   482
  split_list_case and split_option_case.
oheimb@4189
   483
nipkow@4361
   484
* HOL/Arithmetic:
nipkow@4361
   485
  - `pred n' is automatically converted to `n-1'.
nipkow@4361
   486
    Users are strongly encouraged not to use `pred' any longer,
nipkow@4361
   487
    because it will disappear altogether at some point.
nipkow@4361
   488
  - Users are strongly encouraged to write "0 < n" rather than
nipkow@4361
   489
    "n ~= 0". Theorems and proof tools have been modified towards this
nipkow@4361
   490
    `standard'.
nipkow@4357
   491
nipkow@4502
   492
* HOL/Lists:
nipkow@4502
   493
  the function "set_of_list" has been renamed "set" (and its theorems too);
nipkow@4502
   494
  the function "nth" now takes its arguments in the reverse order and
nipkow@4502
   495
  has acquired the infix notation "!" as in "xs!n".
paulson@3570
   496
paulson@4154
   497
* HOL/Set: UNIV is now a constant and is no longer translated to Compl{};
paulson@4154
   498
paulson@4154
   499
* HOL/Set: The operator (UN x.B x) now abbreviates (UN x:UNIV. B x) and its
paulson@4154
   500
  specialist theorems (like UN1_I) are gone.  Similarly for (INT x.B x);
paulson@4154
   501
wenzelm@4575
   502
* HOL/record: extensible records with schematic structural subtyping
wenzelm@4575
   503
(single inheritance); EXPERIMENTAL version demonstrating the encoding,
wenzelm@4575
   504
still lacks various theorems and concrete record syntax;
wenzelm@4575
   505
wenzelm@4125
   506
paulson@3715
   507
*** HOLCF ***
wenzelm@3535
   508
wenzelm@4125
   509
* removed "axioms" and "generated by" sections;
wenzelm@4125
   510
oheimb@4123
   511
* replaced "ops" section by extended "consts" section, which is capable of
wenzelm@4125
   512
  handling the continuous function space "->" directly;
wenzelm@4125
   513
wenzelm@4125
   514
* domain package:
wenzelm@4125
   515
  . proves theorems immediately and stores them in the theory,
wenzelm@4125
   516
  . creates hierachical name space,
wenzelm@4125
   517
  . now uses normal mixfix annotations (instead of cinfix...),
wenzelm@4125
   518
  . minor changes to some names and values (for consistency),
wenzelm@4125
   519
  . e.g. cases -> casedist, dists_eq -> dist_eqs, [take_lemma] -> take_lemmas,
wenzelm@4125
   520
  . separator between mutual domain defs: changed "," to "and",
wenzelm@4125
   521
  . improved handling of sort constraints;  now they have to
wenzelm@4125
   522
    appear on the left-hand side of the equations only;
oheimb@4123
   523
oheimb@4123
   524
* fixed LAM <x,y,zs>.b syntax;
wenzelm@3567
   525
wenzelm@3744
   526
* added extended adm_tac to simplifier in HOLCF -- can now discharge
wenzelm@3744
   527
adm (%x. P (t x)), where P is chainfinite and t continuous;
wenzelm@3579
   528
wenzelm@3579
   529
paulson@3719
   530
*** FOL and ZF ***
paulson@3719
   531
oheimb@4207
   532
* FOL: there is a new splitter `split_asm_tac' that can be used e.g. 
oheimb@4189
   533
  with `addloop' of the simplifier to faciliate case splitting in premises.
oheimb@4189
   534
wenzelm@3744
   535
* qed_spec_mp, qed_goal_spec_mp, qed_goalw_spec_mp are available, as
wenzelm@3744
   536
in HOL, they strip ALL and --> from proved theorems;

paulson@3002
   543
*** General Changes ***
paulson@3002
   544
paulson@3002
   545
* new utilities to build / run / maintain Isabelle etc. (in parts
paulson@3002
   546
still somewhat experimental); old Makefiles etc. still functional;
wenzelm@2971
   547
wenzelm@3205
   548
* new 'Isabelle System Manual';
wenzelm@3205
   549
wenzelm@2825
   550
* INSTALL text, together with ./configure and ./build scripts;
wenzelm@2773
   551
wenzelm@3006
   552
* reimplemented type inference for greater efficiency, better error
wenzelm@3006
   553
messages and clean internal interface;
paulson@3002
   554
paulson@3002
   555
* prlim command for dealing with lots of subgoals (an easier way of
paulson@3002
   556
setting goals_limit);

wenzelm@2756
   569
arbitrary ways, dependent on their type (free, bound, tfree, ...) and
wenzelm@3116
   570
the current print_mode); IMPORTANT: user print translation functions
wenzelm@3116

   572
(Syntax.mark_boundT);
wenzelm@2705

wenzelm@2730
   574

setwrapper to setWrapper and compwrapper to compWrapper; added safe wrapper
wenzelm@3107
   601
(and access functions for it);
paulson@3002

    safe steps.
oheimb@3317
   607
  + safe variant of addss called addSss: uses safe simplifications
oheimb@3317

paulson@2557
   807
a given theory (thms_of), or find out what theory a theorem was proved in
paulson@2557
   808
(theory_of_thm);

   810
* Bugs fixed in the inductive definition and datatype packages;
paulson@2557

paulson@2557
   812
* The classical reasoner provides deepen_tac and depth_tac, making FOL_dup_cs
paulson@2557
   813
and HOL_dup_cs obsolete;
paulson@2557
   814
paulson@2557
   815
