New in this Isabelle version
wenzelm@17754

----------------------------
wenzelm@17754

wenzelm@17754
     7
*** 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@23367
    11
tolerate_legacy_features flag (default true). FUTURE INCOMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@23367
    12
legacy features will disappear eventually.
wenzelm@22826
    13
wenzelm@17918
    14
* Theory syntax: the header format ``theory A = B + C:'' has been
wenzelm@17918
    15
discontinued in favour of ``theory A imports B C begin''.  Use isatool
wenzelm@17918
    16
fixheaders to convert existing theory files.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17918
    17
wenzelm@17918
    18
* Theory syntax: the old non-Isar theory file format has been
wenzelm@17918
    19
discontinued altogether.  Note that ML proof scripts may still be used
wenzelm@17918
    20
with Isar theories; migration is usually quite simple with the ML
wenzelm@17918
    21
function use_legacy_bindings.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17918
    22
wenzelm@22871
    23
* Theory syntax: some popular names (e.g. 'class', 'declaration',
wenzelm@22871
    24
'fun', 'help', 'if') are now keywords.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use double
wenzelm@22871
    25
quotes.
wenzelm@19814
    26
wenzelm@23888
    27
* Theory loader: be more serious about observing the static theory
wenzelm@23888
    28
header specifications (including optional directories), but not the
wenzelm@24172
    29
accidental file locations of previously successful loads.  The strict
wenzelm@24172
    30
update policy of former update_thy is now already performed by
wenzelm@24172
    31
use_thy, so the former has been removed; use_thys updates several
wenzelm@24172
    32
theories simultaneously, just as 'imports' within a theory header
wenzelm@24172
    33
specification, but without merging the results.  Potential
wenzelm@24172
    34
INCOMPATIBILITY: may need to refine theory headers and commands
wenzelm@24172
    35
ROOT.ML which depend on load order.
wenzelm@23888
    36
wenzelm@23888
    37
* Theory loader: optional support for content-based file
wenzelm@23888
    38
identification, instead of the traditional scheme of full physical
wenzelm@23889
    39
path plus date stamp; configured by the ISABELLE_FILE_IDENT setting
wenzelm@23888
    40
(cf. the system manual).  The new scheme allows to work with
wenzelm@23888
    41
non-finished theories in persistent session images, such that source
wenzelm@23888
    42
files may be moved later on without requiring reloads.
wenzelm@23888
    43
wenzelm@24187
    44
* Theory loader: old-style ML proof scripts being *attached* to a thy
wenzelm@24187
    45
file (with the same base name as the theory) are considered a legacy
wenzelm@24187
    46
feature, which will disappear eventually. Even now, the theory loader no
wenzelm@24187
    47
longer maintains dependencies on such files.
wenzelm@24187
    48
wenzelm@17981
    49
* Legacy goal package: reduced interface to the bare minimum required
wenzelm@17981
    50
to keep existing proof scripts running.  Most other user-level
wenzelm@17981
    51
functions are now part of the OldGoals structure, which is *not* open
wenzelm@17981
    52
by default (consider isatool expandshort before open OldGoals).
wenzelm@17981
    53
Removed top_sg, prin, printyp, pprint_term/typ altogether, because
wenzelm@17981
    54
these tend to cause confusion about the actual goal (!) context being
wenzelm@17981
    55
used here, which is not necessarily the same as the_context().
wenzelm@17918
    56
wenzelm@23379
    57
* Command 'find_theorems': supports "*" wild-card in "name:"
wenzelm@23379
    58
criterion; "with_dups" option.  Certain ProofGeneral versions might
wenzelm@23379
    59
support a specific search form (see ProofGeneral/CHANGES).
webertj@22965
    60
wenzelm@20370
    61
* The ``prems limit'' option (cf. ProofContext.prems_limit) is now -1
wenzelm@20370
    62
by default, which means that "prems" (and also "fixed variables") are
wenzelm@20370
    63
suppressed from proof state output.  Note that the ProofGeneral
wenzelm@20370
    64
settings mechanism allows to change and save options persistently, but
wenzelm@20370
    65
older versions of Isabelle will fail to start up if a negative prems
wenzelm@20370
    66
limit is imposed.
wenzelm@20370
    67
wenzelm@21308
    68
* Local theory targets may be specified by non-nested blocks of
wenzelm@21308
    69
``context/locale/class ... begin'' followed by ``end''.  The body may
wenzelm@21308
    70
contain definitions, theorems etc., including any derived mechanism
wenzelm@21308
    71
that has been implemented on top of these primitives.  This concept
wenzelm@21308
    72
generalizes the existing ``theorem (in ...)'' towards more versatility
wenzelm@21308
    73
and scalability.
wenzelm@21308
    74
wenzelm@21960
    75
* Proof General interface: proper undo of final 'end' command;
wenzelm@21960
    76
discontinued Isabelle/classic mode (ML proof scripts).
wenzelm@21960
    77
wenzelm@17754
    78
wenzelm@17865
    79
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@17865
    80
wenzelm@21717
    81
* Added antiquotation @{theory name} which prints the given name,
wenzelm@21717
    82
after checking that it refers to a valid ancestor theory in the
wenzelm@21717
    83
current context.
haftmann@21339
    84
wenzelm@17869
    85
* Added antiquotations @{ML_type text} and @{ML_struct text} which
wenzelm@17869
    86
check the given source text as ML type/structure, printing verbatim.
wenzelm@17865
    87
wenzelm@21717
    88
* Added antiquotation @{abbrev "c args"} which prints the abbreviation
wenzelm@21717
    89
"c args == rhs" given in the current context.  (Any number of
wenzelm@21735
    90
arguments may be given on the LHS.)
wenzelm@21717
    91
wenzelm@21717
    92
wenzelm@17865
    93
wenzelm@17779
    94
*** Pure ***
wenzelm@17779
    95
haftmann@22921
    96
* code generator: consts in 'consts_code' Isar commands are now referred
haftmann@22921
    97
  to by usual term syntax (including optional type annotations).
haftmann@22921
    98
haftmann@22735
    99
* code generator: 
haftmann@22921
   100
  - Isar 'definition's, 'constdef's and primitive instance definitions are added
haftmann@22921
   101
    explicitly to the table of defining equations
haftmann@22754
   102
  - primitive definitions are not used as defining equations by default any longer
haftmann@22735
   103
  - defining equations are now definitly restricted to meta "==" and object
haftmann@22735
   104
        equality "="
haftmann@22735
   105
  - HOL theories have been adopted accordingly
haftmann@22735
   106
wenzelm@20807
   107
* class_package.ML offers a combination of axclasses and locales to
haftmann@22921
   108
achieve Haskell-like type classes in Isabelle.  See
wenzelm@20807
   109
HOL/ex/Classpackage.thy for examples.
wenzelm@20807
   110
wenzelm@20807
   111
* Yet another code generator framework allows to generate executable
haftmann@22921
   112
code for ML and Haskell (including "class"es).  A short usage sketch:
haftmann@20188
   113
haftmann@20188
   114
    internal compilation:
haftmann@23850
   115
        code_gen <list of constants (term syntax)> in SML
haftmann@20453
   116
    writing SML code to a file:
haftmann@23850
   117
        code_gen <list of constants (term syntax)> in SML <filename>
haftmann@22735
   118
    writing OCaml code to a file:
haftmann@23850
   119
        code_gen <list of constants (term syntax)> in OCaml <filename>
haftmann@20188
   120
    writing Haskell code to a bunch of files:
haftmann@23850
   121
        code_gen <list of constants (term syntax)> in Haskell <filename>
haftmann@20453
   122
haftmann@20453
   123
Reasonable default setup of framework in HOL/Main.
haftmann@20453
   124
haftmann@20453
   125
Theorem attributs for selecting and transforming function equations theorems:
haftmann@20453
   126
haftmann@22845
   127
    [code fun]:        select a theorem as function equation for a specific constant
haftmann@22845
   128
    [code fun del]:    deselect a theorem as function equation for a specific constant
haftmann@22845
   129
    [code inline]:     select an equation theorem for unfolding (inlining) in place
haftmann@22845
   130
    [code inline del]: deselect an equation theorem for unfolding (inlining) in place
haftmann@20453
   131
haftmann@22735
   132
User-defined serializations (target in {SML, OCaml, Haskell}):
haftmann@20453
   133
haftmann@20453
   134
    code_const <and-list of constants (term syntax)>
haftmann@20453
   135
      {(target) <and-list of const target syntax>}+
haftmann@20453
   136
haftmann@20453
   137
    code_type <and-list of type constructors>
haftmann@20453
   138
      {(target) <and-list of type target syntax>}+
haftmann@20453
   139
haftmann@20453
   140
    code_instance <and-list of instances>
haftmann@20453
   141
      {(target)}+
haftmann@20453
   142
        where instance ::= <type constructor> :: <class>
haftmann@20453
   143
haftmann@20453
   144
    code_class <and_list of classes>
haftmann@20453
   145
      {(target) <and-list of class target syntax>}+
haftmann@20453
   146
        where class target syntax ::= <class name> {where {<classop> == <target syntax>}+}?
haftmann@20453
   147
haftmann@22735
   148
code_instance and code_class only apply to target Haskell.
haftmann@22735
   149
haftmann@22735
   150
See HOL theories and HOL/ex/Codegenerator*.thy for usage examples.
haftmann@22735
   151
Doc/Isar/Advanced/Codegen/ provides a tutorial.
haftmann@20188
   152
wenzelm@19254
   153
* Command 'no_translations' removes translation rules from theory
wenzelm@19254
   154
syntax.
wenzelm@19254
   155
wenzelm@19625
   156
* Overloaded definitions are now actually checked for acyclic
wenzelm@19714
   157
dependencies.  The overloading scheme is slightly more general than
wenzelm@19714
   158
that of Haskell98, although Isabelle does not demand an exact
wenzelm@19714
   159
correspondence to type class and instance declarations.
wenzelm@19714
   160
INCOMPATIBILITY, use ``defs (unchecked overloaded)'' to admit more
wenzelm@19714
   161
exotic versions of overloading -- at the discretion of the user!
wenzelm@19711
   162
wenzelm@19711
   163
Polymorphic constants are represented via type arguments, i.e. the
wenzelm@19711
   164
instantiation that matches an instance against the most general
wenzelm@19711
   165
declaration given in the signature.  For example, with the declaration
wenzelm@19711
   166
c :: 'a => 'a => 'a, an instance c :: nat => nat => nat is represented
wenzelm@19711
   167
as c(nat).  Overloading is essentially simultaneous structural
wenzelm@19711
   168
recursion over such type arguments.  Incomplete specification patterns
wenzelm@19714
   169
impose global constraints on all occurrences, e.g. c('a * 'a) on the
wenzelm@19715
   170
LHS means that more general c('a * 'b) will be disallowed on any RHS.
wenzelm@19714
   171
Command 'print_theory' outputs the normalized system of recursive
wenzelm@19714
   172
equations, see section "definitions".
wenzelm@19625
   173
wenzelm@24086
   174
* Configuration options are maintained within the theory or proof
wenzelm@24086
   175
context (with name and type bool/int/string), providing a very simple
wenzelm@24086
   176
interface to a poor-man's version of general context data.  Tools may
wenzelm@24110
   177
declare options in ML (e.g. using Attrib.config_int) and then refer to
wenzelm@24110
   178
these values using Config.get etc.  Users may change options via an
wenzelm@24110
   179
associated attribute of the same name.  This form of context
wenzelm@24110
   180
declaration works particularly well with commands 'declare' or
wenzelm@24110
   181
'using', for example ``declare [[foo = 42]]''.  Thus it has become
wenzelm@24110
   182
very easy to avoid global references, which would not observe Isar
wenzelm@24110
   183
toplevel undo/redo and fail to work with multithreading.
wenzelm@24086
   184
wenzelm@24172
   185
Various global ML references of Pure and HOL have been turned into
wenzelm@24172
   186
configuration options:
wenzelm@24172
   187
wenzelm@24172
   188
  Unify.search_bound		unify_search_bound
wenzelm@24172
   189
  Unify.trace_bound		unify_trace_bound
wenzelm@24172
   190
  Unify.trace_simp		unify_trace_simp
wenzelm@24172
   191
  Unify.trace_types		unify_trace_types
wenzelm@24172
   192
  Simplifier.simp_depth_limit	simp_depth_limit
wenzelm@24172
   193
  Blast.depth_limit		blast_depth_limit
wenzelm@24172
   194
  DatatypeProp.dtK		datatype_distinctness_limit
wenzelm@24172
   195
  fast_arith_neq_limit  	fast_arith_neq_limit
wenzelm@24172
   196
  fast_arith_split_limit	fast_arith_split_limit
wenzelm@24172
   197
wenzelm@24086
   198
* Named collections of theorems may be easily installed as context
wenzelm@24086
   199
data using the functor NamedThmsFun (see
wenzelm@24086
   200
src/Pure/Tools/named_thms.ML).  The user may add or delete facts via
wenzelm@24110
   201
attributes; there is also a toplevel print command.  This facility is
wenzelm@24110
   202
just a common case of general context data, which is the preferred way
wenzelm@24110
   203
for anything more complex than just a list of facts in canonical
wenzelm@24110
   204
order.
wenzelm@24086
   205
wenzelm@24032
   206
* Isar: command 'declaration' augments a local theory by generic
wenzelm@24032
   207
declaration functions written in ML.  This enables arbitrary content
wenzelm@24032
   208
being added to the context, depending on a morphism that tells the
wenzelm@24032
   209
difference of the original declaration context wrt. the application
wenzelm@24032
   210
context encountered later on.
wenzelm@24032
   211
wenzelm@24032
   212
* Isar: proper interfaces for simplification procedures.  Command
wenzelm@24032
   213
'simproc_setup' declares named simprocs (with match patterns, and body
wenzelm@24032
   214
text in ML).  Attribute "simproc" adds/deletes simprocs in the current
wenzelm@24032
   215
context.  ML antiquotation @{simproc name} retrieves named simprocs.
wenzelm@24032
   216
wenzelm@24032
   217
* Isar: an extra pair of brackets around attribute declarations
wenzelm@24032
   218
abbreviates a theorem reference involving an internal dummy fact,
wenzelm@24032
   219
which will be ignored later --- only the effect of the attribute on
wenzelm@24032
   220
the background context will persist.  This form of in-place
wenzelm@24032
   221
declarations is particularly useful with commands like 'declare' and
wenzelm@24032
   222
'using', for example ``have A using [[simproc a]] by simp''.
wenzelm@24032
   223
wenzelm@23369
   224
* Isar: method "assumption" (and implicit closing of subproofs) now
wenzelm@23369
   225
takes simple non-atomic goal assumptions into account: after applying
wenzelm@23369
   226
an assumption as a rule the resulting subgoals are solved by atomic
wenzelm@23369
   227
assumption steps.  This is particularly useful to finish 'obtain'
wenzelm@23369
   228
goals, such as "!!x. (!!x. P x ==> thesis) ==> P x ==> thesis",
wenzelm@23369
   229
without referring to the original premise "!!x. P x ==> thesis" in the
wenzelm@23369
   230
Isar proof context.  POTENTIAL INCOMPATIBILITY: method "assumption" is
wenzelm@23369
   231
more permissive.
wenzelm@23369
   232
wenzelm@23369
   233
* Isar: implicit use of prems from the Isar proof context is
wenzelm@23369
   234
considered a legacy feature.  Common applications like ``have A .''
wenzelm@23369
   235
may be replaced by ``have A by fact'' or ``note `A`''.  In general,
wenzelm@23369
   236
referencing facts explicitly here improves readability and
wenzelm@23369
   237
maintainability of proof texts.
wenzelm@23369
   238
wenzelm@17865
   239
* Isar: improper proof element 'guess' is like 'obtain', but derives
wenzelm@17865
   240
the obtained context from the course of reasoning!  For example:
wenzelm@17865
   241
wenzelm@17865
   242
  assume "EX x y. A x & B y"   -- "any previous fact"
wenzelm@17865
   243
  then guess x and y by clarify
wenzelm@17865
   244
wenzelm@17865
   245
This technique is potentially adventurous, depending on the facts and
wenzelm@17865
   246
proof tools being involved here.
wenzelm@17865
   247
wenzelm@18020
   248
* Isar: known facts from the proof context may be specified as literal
wenzelm@18020
   249
propositions, using ASCII back-quote syntax.  This works wherever
wenzelm@18020
   250
named facts used to be allowed so far, in proof commands, proof
wenzelm@18020
   251
methods, attributes etc.  Literal facts are retrieved from the context
wenzelm@18020
   252
according to unification of type and term parameters.  For example,
wenzelm@18020
   253
provided that "A" and "A ==> B" and "!!x. P x ==> Q x" are known
wenzelm@18020
   254
theorems in the current context, then these are valid literal facts:
wenzelm@18020
   255
`A` and `A ==> B` and `!!x. P x ==> Q x" as well as `P a ==> Q a` etc.
wenzelm@18020
   256
wenzelm@18020
   257
There is also a proof method "fact" which does the same composition
wenzelm@18044
   258
for explicit goal states, e.g. the following proof texts coincide with
wenzelm@18044
   259
certain special cases of literal facts:
wenzelm@18020
   260

  have "A" by fact                 ==  note `A`
wenzelm@18020

wenzelm@18020
   265
wenzelm@20118
   266
* Isar: ":" (colon) is no longer a symbolic identifier character in
wenzelm@20118
   267
outer syntax.  Thus symbolic identifiers may be used without
wenzelm@20118
   268
additional white space in declarations like this: ``assume *: A''.
wenzelm@20118
   269
wenzelm@20013
   270
* Isar: 'print_facts' prints all local facts of the current context,
wenzelm@20013
   271
both named and unnamed ones.
wenzelm@20013
   272
wenzelm@18308
   273
* Isar: 'def' now admits simultaneous definitions, e.g.:
wenzelm@18308
   274
wenzelm@18308
   275
  def x == "t" and y == "u"
wenzelm@18308
   276
wenzelm@18540
   277
* Isar: added command 'unfolding', which is structurally similar to
wenzelm@18540
   278
'using', but affects both the goal state and facts by unfolding given
wenzelm@18815
   279
rewrite rules.  Thus many occurrences of the 'unfold' method or
wenzelm@18540
   280
'unfolded' attribute may be replaced by first-class proof text.
wenzelm@18540
   281
wenzelm@18815
   282
* Isar: methods 'unfold' / 'fold', attributes 'unfolded' / 'folded',
wenzelm@18815
   283
and command 'unfolding' now all support object-level equalities
wenzelm@18815
   284
(potentially conditional).  The underlying notion of rewrite rule is
wenzelm@18815
   285
analogous to the 'rule_format' attribute, but *not* that of the
wenzelm@18815
   286
Simplifier (which is usually more generous).
wenzelm@18815
   287
wenzelm@19220
   288
* Isar: the goal restriction operator [N] (default N = 1) evaluates a
wenzelm@19220
   289
method expression within a sandbox consisting of the first N
wenzelm@19240
   290
sub-goals, which need to exist.  For example, ``simp_all [3]''
wenzelm@19240
   291
simplifies the first three sub-goals, while (rule foo, simp_all)[]
wenzelm@19240
   292
simplifies all new goals that emerge from applying rule foo to the
wenzelm@19240
   293
originally first one.
wenzelm@19220
   294
wenzelm@19814
   295
* Isar: schematic goals are no longer restricted to higher-order
wenzelm@19814
   296
patterns; e.g. ``lemma "?P(?x)" by (rule TrueI)'' now works as
wenzelm@19814
   297
expected.
wenzelm@19814
   298
wenzelm@18901
   299
* Isar: the conclusion of a long theorem statement is now either
wenzelm@18901
   300
'shows' (a simultaneous conjunction, as before), or 'obtains'
wenzelm@18901
   301
(essentially a disjunction of cases with local parameters and
wenzelm@18901
   302
assumptions).  The latter allows to express general elimination rules
wenzelm@18910
   303
adequately; in this notation common elimination rules look like this:
wenzelm@18901
   304
wenzelm@18901
   305
  lemma exE:    -- "EX x. P x ==> (!!x. P x ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
   306
    assumes "EX x. P x"
wenzelm@18901
   307
    obtains x where "P x"
wenzelm@18901
   308
wenzelm@18901
   309
  lemma conjE:  -- "A & B ==> (A ==> B ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
   310
    assumes "A & B"
wenzelm@18901
   311
    obtains A and B
wenzelm@18901
   312
wenzelm@18901
   313
  lemma disjE:  -- "A | B ==> (A ==> thesis) ==> (B ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
   314
    assumes "A | B"
wenzelm@18901
   315
    obtains
wenzelm@18901
   316
      A
wenzelm@18901
   317
    | B
wenzelm@18901
   318
wenzelm@18910
   319
The subsequent classical rules even refer to the formal "thesis"
wenzelm@18901
   320
explicitly:
wenzelm@18901
   321
wenzelm@18901
   322
  lemma classical:     -- "(~ thesis ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
   323
    obtains "~ thesis"
wenzelm@18901
   324
wenzelm@18910
   325
  lemma Peirce's_Law:  -- "((thesis ==> something) ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18910
   326
    obtains "thesis ==> something"
wenzelm@18901
   327
wenzelm@18901
   328
The actual proof of an 'obtains' statement is analogous to that of the
wenzelm@18910
   329
Isar proof element 'obtain', only that there may be several cases.
wenzelm@18910
   330
Optional case names may be specified in parentheses; these will be
wenzelm@18910
   331
available both in the present proof and as annotations in the
wenzelm@18910
   332
resulting rule, for later use with the 'cases' method (cf. attribute
wenzelm@18910
   333
case_names).
wenzelm@18901
   334
wenzelm@21447
   335
* Isar: the assumptions of a long theorem statement are available as
wenzelm@21447
   336
"assms" fact in the proof context.  This is more appropriate than the
wenzelm@21447
   337
(historical) "prems", which refers to all assumptions of the current
wenzelm@21447
   338
context, including those from the target locale, proof body etc.
wenzelm@21447
   339
wenzelm@19263
   340
* Isar: 'print_statement' prints theorems from the current theory or
wenzelm@19263
   341
proof context in long statement form, according to the syntax of a
wenzelm@19263
   342
top-level lemma.
wenzelm@19263
   343
wenzelm@18901
   344
* Isar: 'obtain' takes an optional case name for the local context
wenzelm@18901
   345
introduction rule (default "that").
wenzelm@18901
   346
wenzelm@19587
   347
* Isar: removed obsolete 'concl is' patterns.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use
wenzelm@19587
   348
explicit (is "_ ==> ?foo") in the rare cases where this still happens
wenzelm@19587
   349
to occur.
wenzelm@19587
   350
wenzelm@19682
   351
* Pure: syntax "CONST name" produces a fully internalized constant
wenzelm@19682
   352
according to the current context.  This is particularly useful for
wenzelm@19682
   353
syntax translations that should refer to internal constant
wenzelm@19682
   354
representations independently of name spaces.
wenzelm@19682
   355
wenzelm@21537
   356
* Pure: syntax constant for foo (binder "FOO ") is called "foo_binder"
wenzelm@21537
   357
instead of "FOO ". This allows multiple binder declarations to coexist
wenzelm@21537
   358
in the same context.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@21537
   359
wenzelm@21209
   360
* Isar/locales: 'notation' provides a robust interface to the 'syntax'
wenzelm@21209
   361
primitive that also works in a locale context (both for constants and
wenzelm@21209
   362
fixed variables).  Type declaration and internal syntactic
wenzelm@21209
   363
representation of given constants retrieved from the context.
wenzelm@19682
   364
wenzelm@19665
   365
* Isar/locales: new derived specification elements 'axiomatization',
wenzelm@19665
   366
'definition', 'abbreviation', which support type-inference, admit
wenzelm@19083
   367
object-level specifications (equality, equivalence).  See also the
wenzelm@19083
   368
isar-ref manual.  Examples:
wenzelm@19081
   369
wenzelm@19665
   370
  axiomatization
wenzelm@21595
   371
    eq  (infix "===" 50) where
wenzelm@21595
   372
    eq_refl: "x === x" and eq_subst: "x === y ==> P x ==> P y"
wenzelm@21595
   373
wenzelm@21595
   374
  definition "f x y = x + y + 1"
wenzelm@21595
   375
  definition g where "g x = f x x"
wenzelm@19081
   376
wenzelm@19363
   377
  abbreviation
wenzelm@21595
   378
    neq  (infix "=!=" 50) where
wenzelm@19363
   379
    "x =!= y == ~ (x === y)"
wenzelm@19081
   380
wenzelm@19083
   381
These specifications may be also used in a locale context.  Then the
wenzelm@19083
   382
constants being introduced depend on certain fixed parameters, and the
wenzelm@19083
   383
constant name is qualified by the locale base name.  An internal
wenzelm@19083
   384
abbreviation takes care for convenient input and output, making the
wenzelm@19088
   385
parameters implicit and using the original short name.  See also
wenzelm@19083
   386
HOL/ex/Abstract_NAT.thy for an example of deriving polymorphic
wenzelm@19083
   387
entities from a monomorphic theory.
wenzelm@19083
   388
wenzelm@19083
   389
Presently, abbreviations are only available 'in' a target locale, but
wenzelm@19363
   390
not inherited by general import expressions.  Also note that
wenzelm@19363
   391
'abbreviation' may be used as a type-safe replacement for 'syntax' +
wenzelm@19363
   392
'translations' in common applications.
wenzelm@19084
   393
wenzelm@19682
   394
Concrete syntax is attached to specified constants in internal form,
wenzelm@19682
   395
independently of name spaces.  The parse tree representation is
wenzelm@21209
   396
slightly different -- use 'notation' instead of raw 'syntax', and
wenzelm@19682
   397
'translations' with explicit "CONST" markup to accommodate this.
wenzelm@19665
   398
wenzelm@21735
   399
* Pure: command 'print_abbrevs' prints all constant abbreviations of
wenzelm@21735
   400
the current context.  Print mode "no_abbrevs" prevents inversion of
wenzelm@21735
   401
abbreviations on output.
wenzelm@21735
   402
ballarin@19783
   403
* Isar/locales: improved parameter handling:
ballarin@19783
   404
- use of locales "var" and "struct" no longer necessary;
ballarin@19783
   405
- parameter renamings are no longer required to be injective.
ballarin@19783
   406
  This enables, for example, to define a locale for endomorphisms thus:
ballarin@19783
   407
  locale endom = homom mult mult h.
ballarin@19783
   408
ballarin@19931
   409
* Isar/locales: changed the way locales with predicates are defined.
ballarin@19931
   410
Instead of accumulating the specification, the imported expression is
wenzelm@22126
   411
now an interpretation.  INCOMPATIBILITY: different normal form of
wenzelm@22126
   412
locale expressions.  In particular, in interpretations of locales with
wenzelm@22126
   413
predicates, goals repesenting already interpreted fragments are not
wenzelm@22126
   414
removed automatically.  Use methods `intro_locales' and
wenzelm@22126
   415
`unfold_locales'; see below.
wenzelm@22126
   416
wenzelm@22126
   417
* Isar/locales: new methods `intro_locales' and `unfold_locales'
wenzelm@22126
   418
provide backward reasoning on locales predicates.  The methods are
wenzelm@22126
   419
aware of interpretations and discharge corresponding goals.
wenzelm@22126
   420
`intro_locales' is less aggressive then `unfold_locales' and does not
wenzelm@22126
   421
unfold predicates to assumptions.
ballarin@19931
   422
ballarin@19931
   423
* Isar/locales: the order in which locale fragments are accumulated
wenzelm@22126
   424
has changed.  This enables to override declarations from fragments due
wenzelm@22126
   425
to interpretations -- for example, unwanted simp rules.
ballarin@19931
   426
ballarin@23920
   427
* Isar/locales: interpretation in theories and proof contexts has been
ballarin@23920
   428
extended.  One may now specify (and prove) equations, which are
ballarin@23920
   429
unfolded in interpreted theorems.  This is useful for replacing
ballarin@23920
   430
defined concepts (constants depending on locale parameters) by
ballarin@23920
   431
concepts already existing in the target context.  Example:
ballarin@23920
   432
ballarin@23920
   433
  interpretation partial_order ["op <= :: [int, int] => bool"]
ballarin@23920
   434
    where "partial_order.less (op <=) (x::int) y = (x < y)"
ballarin@23920
   435
ballarin@23977
   436
Typically, the constant `partial_order.less' is created by a definition
ballarin@23977
   437
specification element in the context of locale partial_order.
ballarin@23920
   438
wenzelm@18233
   439
* Provers/induct: improved internal context management to support
wenzelm@18233
   440
local fixes and defines on-the-fly.  Thus explicit meta-level
wenzelm@18233
   441
connectives !! and ==> are rarely required anymore in inductive goals
wenzelm@18233
   442
(using object-logic connectives for this purpose has been long
wenzelm@18233
   443
obsolete anyway).  The subsequent proof patterns illustrate advanced
wenzelm@18233
   444
techniques of natural induction; general datatypes and inductive sets
wenzelm@18267
   445
work analogously (see also src/HOL/Lambda for realistic examples).
wenzelm@18267
   446
wenzelm@18267
   447
(1) This is how to ``strengthen'' an inductive goal wrt. certain
wenzelm@18239

(2) This is how to perform induction over ``expressions of a certain
wenzelm@18233
   466
form'', using a locally defined inductive parameter n == "a x"
wenzelm@18239
   467
together with strengthening (the latter is usually required to get
wenzelm@18267
   468
sufficiently flexible induction hypotheses):

   479
particular technique.
wenzelm@18267
   480
wenzelm@18901
   481
(3) This is how to perform existential reasoning ('obtains' or
wenzelm@18901
   482
'obtain') by induction, while avoiding explicit object-logic
wenzelm@18901
   483
encodings:

   497
  qed
wenzelm@18267
   498
wenzelm@20503
   499
Here the 'arbitrary: thesis' specification essentially modifies the
wenzelm@20503
   500
scope of the formal thesis parameter, in order to the get the whole
wenzelm@18267
   501
existence statement through the induction as expected.
wenzelm@18233
   502
wenzelm@18506
   503
* Provers/induct: mutual induction rules are now specified as a list
wenzelm@18506
   504
of rule sharing the same induction cases.  HOL packages usually
wenzelm@18506
   505
provide foo_bar.inducts for mutually defined items foo and bar
wenzelm@18506
   506
(e.g. inductive sets or datatypes).  INCOMPATIBILITY, users need to
wenzelm@18506
   507
specify mutual induction rules differently, i.e. like this:
wenzelm@18506
   508
wenzelm@18506
   509
  (induct rule: foo_bar.inducts)
wenzelm@18506
   510
  (induct set: foo bar)
wenzelm@18506
   511
  (induct type: foo bar)
wenzelm@18506
   512
wenzelm@18506
   513
The ML function ProjectRule.projections turns old-style rules into the
wenzelm@18506
   514
new format.
wenzelm@18506
   515
wenzelm@18506
   516
* Provers/induct: improved handling of simultaneous goals.  Instead of
wenzelm@18506
   517
introducing object-level conjunction, the statement is now split into
wenzelm@18506
   518
several conclusions, while the corresponding symbolic cases are
wenzelm@18601
   519
nested accordingly.  INCOMPATIBILITY, proofs need to be structured
wenzelm@18601
   520
explicitly.  For example:
wenzelm@18480
   521
wenzelm@18480
   522
  lemma
wenzelm@18480
   523
    fixes n :: nat

   525
  proof (induct n)
wenzelm@18601
   526
    case 0 case 1
wenzelm@18480

   698
  INCOMPATIBILITIES:
berghofe@23783
   699
berghofe@23783
   700
  - Since declaration and definition of inductive sets or predicates
berghofe@23783
   701
    is no longer separated, abbreviations involving the newly introduced
berghofe@23783
   702
    sets or predicates must be specified together with the introduction
berghofe@23783
   703
    rules after the "where" keyword (see example above), rather than before
berghofe@23783
   704
    the actual inductive definition.
berghofe@23783
   705
berghofe@23783
   706
  - The variables in induction and elimination rules are now quantified
berghofe@23783
   707
    in the order of their occurrence in the introduction rules, rather than
berghofe@23783
   708
    in alphabetical order. Since this may break some proofs, these proofs
berghofe@23783
   709
    either have to be repaired, e.g. by reordering the variables
berghofe@23783
   710
    a_i_1 ... a_i_{k_i} in Isar "case" statements of the form
berghofe@23783
   711
berghofe@23783
   712
      case (rule_i a_i_1 ... a_i_{k_i})
berghofe@23783
   713
berghofe@23783
   714
    or the old order of quantification has to be restored by explicitly adding
berghofe@23783
   715
    meta-level quantifiers in the introduction rules, i.e.
berghofe@23783
   716
berghofe@23783
   717
      | rule_i: "!!a_i_1 ... a_i_{k_i}. ... ==> p z_1 ... z_m t_i_1 ... t_i_n"
berghofe@23783
   718
berghofe@23783
   719
  - The format of the elimination rules is now
berghofe@23783
   720
berghofe@23783
   721

        ==> ... ==> P
berghofe@23783

        ==> ... ==> P
berghofe@23783
   736
berghofe@23783
   737
    This may require terms in goals to be expanded to n-tuples (e.g. using case_tac
berghofe@23783
   738
    or simplification with the split_paired_all rule) before the above elimination
berghofe@23783
   739
    rule is applicable.
berghofe@23783
   740
berghofe@23783
   741
  - The elimination or case analysis rules for (mutually) inductive sets or
berghofe@23783

nipkow@23564
   756
  Internally, this is translated into nested case-expressions; missing cases
nipkow@23564
   757
  are added and mapped to the predefined constant "undefined". In complicated
nipkow@23564
   758
  cases printing may no longer show the original input but the internal

   759
  form. Lambda-abstractions allow the same form of pattern matching:

  "% pat1 => e1 | ..." is an abbreviation for
nipkow@23564
   761
  "%x. case x of pat1 => e1 | ..." where x is a new variable.

huffman@23468
   765
  for "of_nat" have been changed to work like "int" did previously.
huffman@23468
   766
  (potential INCOMPATIBILITY)
huffman@23468
   767
  - "of_nat (Suc m)" simplifies to "1 + of_nat m" instead of "of_nat m + 1"
huffman@23468

  - of_nat_diff and of_nat_mult are no longer default simp rules

* Method "algebra" solves polynomial equations over (semi)rings using
chaieb@23295
   771
  Groebner bases. The (semi)ring structure is defined by locales and
chaieb@23295
   772
  the tool setup depends on that generic context. Installing the
chaieb@23295
   773
  method for a specific type involves instantiating the locale and
chaieb@23295
   774
  possibly adding declarations for computation on the coefficients.
chaieb@23295
   775
  The method is already instantiated for natural numbers and for the

* New top level command 'normal_form' computes the normal form of a
wenzelm@22126
  1019
term that may contain free variables. For example ``normal_form
wenzelm@22126
  1020
"rev[a,b,c]"'' produces ``[b,c,a]'' (without proof).  This command is
wenzelm@22126
  1021
suitable for heavy-duty computations because the functions are
wenzelm@22126

Adaptions may be required in the following cases:
haftmann@19233
  1038
nipkow@19377
  1039
a) User-defined constants using any of the names "plus", "minus", "times",
nipkow@19377
  1040
"less" or "less_eq". The standard syntax translations for "+", "-" and "*"
nipkow@19377
  1041
may go wrong.
haftmann@19233
  1042
INCOMPATIBILITY: use more specific names.
haftmann@19233
  1043
haftmann@19277
  1044
b) Variables named "plus", "minus", "times", "less", "less_eq"
haftmann@19233
  1045
INCOMPATIBILITY: use more specific names.
haftmann@19233
  1046
nipkow@19377
  1047
c) Permutative equations (e.g. "a + b = b + a")
nipkow@19377
  1048
Since the change of names also changes the order of terms, permutative
nipkow@19377
  1049
rewrite rules may get applied in a different order. Experience shows that
nipkow@19377
  1050
this is rarely the case (only two adaptions in the whole Isabelle
nipkow@19377
  1051
distribution).
nipkow@19377
  1052
INCOMPATIBILITY: rewrite proofs
haftmann@19233
  1053
haftmann@19233
  1054
d) ML code directly refering to constant names
haftmann@19233
  1055
This in general only affects hand-written proof tactics, simprocs and so on.
haftmann@22997
  1056
INCOMPATIBILITY: grep your sourcecode and replace names.  Consider use
haftmann@22997
  1057
of const_name ML antiquotations.
haftmann@19233

wenzelm@21265
  1059
* Relations less (<) and less_eq (<=) are also available on type bool.
wenzelm@21265
  1060
Modified syntax to disallow nesting without explicit parentheses,
wenzelm@21265
  1061
e.g. "(x < y) < z" or "x < (y < z)", but NOT "x < y < z".
wenzelm@21265
  1062
nipkow@18674
  1063
* "LEAST x:A. P" expands to "LEAST x. x:A & P" (input only).
nipkow@18674
  1064
krauss@20716
  1065
* Relation composition operator "op O" now has precedence 75 and binds
krauss@20716
  1066
stronger than union and intersection. INCOMPATIBILITY.
krauss@20716
  1067
wenzelm@22126
  1068
* The old set interval syntax "{m..n(}" (and relatives) has been
wenzelm@22126
  1069
removed.  Use "{m..<n}" (and relatives) instead.
nipkow@19377
  1070
wenzelm@17865
  1071
* In the context of the assumption "~(s = t)" the Simplifier rewrites
wenzelm@17865
  1072
"t = s" to False (by simproc "neq_simproc").  For backward
wenzelm@17865
  1073
compatibility this can be disabled by ML "reset use_neq_simproc".
wenzelm@17779
  1074
wenzelm@22126
  1075
* "m dvd n" where m and n are numbers is evaluated to True/False by
wenzelm@22126
  1076
simp.
wenzelm@22126
  1077
wenzelm@22126
  1078
* Theorem Cons_eq_map_conv no longer declared as ``simp''.
nipkow@19211
  1079
ballarin@19279
  1080
* Theorem setsum_mult renamed to setsum_right_distrib.
ballarin@19279
  1081
nipkow@19211
  1082
* Prefer ex1I over ex_ex1I in single-step reasoning, e.g. by the
wenzelm@22126
  1083
``rule'' method.
wenzelm@22126
  1084
wenzelm@22126
  1085
* Reimplemented methods ``sat'' and ``satx'', with several
wenzelm@22126
  1086
improvements: goals no longer need to be stated as "<prems> ==>
wenzelm@22126
  1087
False", equivalences (i.e. "=" on type bool) are handled, variable
wenzelm@22126
  1088
names of the form "lit_<n>" are no longer reserved, significant
wenzelm@22126
  1089
speedup.
wenzelm@22126
  1090
wenzelm@22126
  1091
* Methods ``sat'' and ``satx'' can now replay MiniSat proof traces.
wenzelm@22126
  1092
zChaff is still supported as well.
wenzelm@22126
  1093
wenzelm@22126
  1094
* 'inductive' and 'datatype': provide projections of mutual rules,
wenzelm@22126
  1095
bundled as foo_bar.inducts;
wenzelm@22126
  1096
wenzelm@22126
  1097
* Library: moved theories Parity, GCD, Binomial, Infinite_Set to
wenzelm@22126
  1098
Library.
wenzelm@21256
  1099
wenzelm@21256
  1100
* Library: moved theory Accessible_Part to main HOL.
wenzelm@19572
  1101
wenzelm@18446
  1102
* Library: added theory Coinductive_List of potentially infinite lists
wenzelm@18446
  1103
as greatest fixed-point.
wenzelm@18399
  1104
wenzelm@19254
  1105
* Library: added theory AssocList which implements (finite) maps as
schirmer@19252
  1106
association lists.
webertj@17809
  1107
wenzelm@22126
  1108
* Added proof method ``evaluation'' for efficiently solving a goal
wenzelm@22126
  1109
(i.e. a boolean expression) by compiling it to ML. The goal is
wenzelm@22126
  1110
"proved" (via an oracle) if it evaluates to True.
wenzelm@20807
  1111
wenzelm@20807
  1112
* Linear arithmetic now splits certain operators (e.g. min, max, abs)
wenzelm@20807
  1113
also when invoked by the simplifier.  This results in the simplifier
haftmann@21056
  1114
being more powerful on arithmetic goals.  INCOMPATIBILITY.  Set
wenzelm@20807
  1115
fast_arith_split_limit to 0 to obtain the old behavior.
webertj@20217
  1116
wenzelm@22126
  1117
* Support for hex (0x20) and binary (0b1001) numerals.
wenzelm@19254
  1118
wenzelm@20807
  1119
* New method: reify eqs (t), where eqs are equations for an
wenzelm@20807
  1120
interpretation I :: 'a list => 'b => 'c and t::'c is an optional
wenzelm@20807
  1121
parameter, computes a term s::'b and a list xs::'a list and proves the
wenzelm@20807
  1122
theorem I xs s = t. This is also known as reification or quoting. The
wenzelm@20807
  1123
resulting theorem is applied to the subgoal to substitute t with I xs
wenzelm@20807
  1124
s.  If t is omitted, the subgoal itself is reified.
wenzelm@20807
  1125
wenzelm@20807
  1126
* New method: reflection corr_thm eqs (t). The parameters eqs and (t)
wenzelm@20807
  1127
are as explained above. corr_thm is a theorem for I vs (f t) = I vs t,
wenzelm@20807
  1128
where f is supposed to be a computable function (in the sense of code
wenzelm@20807
  1129
generattion). The method uses reify to compute s and xs as above then
wenzelm@20807
  1130
applies corr_thm and uses normalization by evaluation to "prove" f s =
wenzelm@20807
  1131
r and finally gets the theorem t = r, which is again applied to the
wenzelm@20807
  1132
subgoal. An Example is available in HOL/ex/ReflectionEx.thy.
wenzelm@20807
  1133

wenzelm@19653
  1159
feature is used only for decision, for compatibility with arith. This

Nonnegativity side conditions have been removed from many lemmas, so

treating lists over 'a as finite mappings from [0...n] to 'a have been
wenzelm@18446
  1270
given more convenient names and signatures reminiscent of similar
wenzelm@18446
  1271
functions for alists, tables, etc:
haftmann@18051
  1272
haftmann@18051
  1273
  val nth: 'a list -> int -> 'a 
haftmann@18051
  1274
  val nth_map: int -> ('a -> 'a) -> 'a list -> 'a list
haftmann@18051
  1275
  val fold_index: (int * 'a -> 'b -> 'b) -> 'a list -> 'b -> 'b
haftmann@18051
  1276
wenzelm@18446
  1277
Note that fold_index starts counting at index 0, not 1 like foldln
wenzelm@18446
  1278
used to.
wenzelm@18446
  1279
wenzelm@22126
  1280
* Pure/library: added general ``divide_and_conquer'' combinator on
wenzelm@22126
  1281
lists.
wenzelm@19032
  1282
wenzelm@19032
  1283
* Pure/General/table.ML: the join operations now works via exceptions
wenzelm@19081
  1284
DUP/SAME instead of type option.  This is simpler in simple cases, and
wenzelm@19081
  1285
admits slightly more efficient complex applications.
wenzelm@18446
  1286
wenzelm@18642
  1287
* Pure: datatype Context.generic joins theory/Proof.context and
wenzelm@18644
  1288
provides some facilities for code that works in either kind of
wenzelm@18642
  1289
context, notably GenericDataFun for uniform theory and proof data.
wenzelm@18642
  1290
wenzelm@18862
  1291
* Pure: 'advanced' translation functions (parse_translation etc.) now
wenzelm@18862
  1292
use Context.generic instead of just theory.
wenzelm@18862
  1293
wenzelm@18737
  1294
* Pure: simplified internal attribute type, which is now always
wenzelm@18737
  1295
Context.generic * thm -> Context.generic * thm.  Global (theory)
wenzelm@18737
  1296
vs. local (Proof.context) attributes have been discontinued, while
wenzelm@18738
  1297
minimizing code duplication.  Thm.rule_attribute and
wenzelm@18738
  1298
Thm.declaration_attribute build canonical attributes; see also
wenzelm@19006
  1299
structure Context for further operations on Context.generic, notably
wenzelm@19006
  1300
GenericDataFun.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt attribute type
wenzelm@19006
  1301
declarations and definitions.
wenzelm@19006
  1302
wenzelm@19508
  1303
* Pure/kernel: consts certification ignores sort constraints given in
wenzelm@19508
  1304
signature declarations.  (This information is not relevant to the
wenzelm@22126
  1305
logic, but only for type inference.)  IMPORTANT INTERNAL CHANGE,
wenzelm@22126
  1306
potential INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@19508
  1307
wenzelm@19508
  1308
* Pure: axiomatic type classes are now purely definitional, with
wenzelm@19508
  1309
explicit proofs of class axioms and super class relations performed
wenzelm@19508
  1310
internally.  See Pure/axclass.ML for the main internal interfaces --
wenzelm@19508
  1311
notably AxClass.define_class supercedes AxClass.add_axclass, and
wenzelm@19508
  1312
AxClass.axiomatize_class/classrel/arity supercede
wenzelm@19508
  1313
Sign.add_classes/classrel/arities.
wenzelm@19508
  1314
wenzelm@19006
  1315
* Pure/Isar: Args/Attrib parsers operate on Context.generic --
wenzelm@19006
  1316
global/local versions on theory vs. Proof.context have been
wenzelm@19006
  1317
discontinued; Attrib.syntax and Method.syntax have been adapted
wenzelm@19006
  1318
accordingly.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt parser expressions for
wenzelm@19006
  1319
attributes, methods, etc.
wenzelm@18642
  1320
wenzelm@18446
  1321
* Pure: several functions of signature "... -> theory -> theory * ..."
wenzelm@18446
  1322
have been reoriented to "... -> theory -> ... * theory" in order to
wenzelm@18446
  1323
allow natural usage in combination with the ||>, ||>>, |-> and
wenzelm@18446
  1324
fold_map combinators.
haftmann@18051
  1325
wenzelm@21647
  1326
* Pure: official theorem names (closed derivations) and additional
wenzelm@21647
  1327
comments (tags) are now strictly separate.  Name hints -- which are
wenzelm@21647
  1328
maintained as tags -- may be attached any time without affecting the
wenzelm@21647
  1329
derivation.
wenzelm@21647
  1330
wenzelm@18020
  1331
* Pure: primitive rule lift_rule now takes goal cterm instead of an
wenzelm@18145
  1332
actual goal state (thm).  Use Thm.lift_rule (Thm.cprem_of st i) to
wenzelm@18020
  1333
achieve the old behaviour.
wenzelm@18020
  1334
wenzelm@18020
  1335
* Pure: the "Goal" constant is now called "prop", supporting a
wenzelm@18020
  1336
slightly more general idea of ``protecting'' meta-level rule
wenzelm@18020
  1337
statements.
wenzelm@18020
  1338
wenzelm@20040
  1339
* Pure: Logic.(un)varify only works in a global context, which is now
wenzelm@20040
  1340
enforced instead of silently assumed.  INCOMPATIBILITY, may use
wenzelm@20040
  1341
Logic.legacy_(un)varify as temporary workaround.
wenzelm@20040
  1342
wenzelm@20090
  1343
* Pure: structure Name provides scalable operations for generating
wenzelm@20090
  1344
internal variable names, notably Name.variants etc.  This replaces
wenzelm@20090
  1345
some popular functions from term.ML:
wenzelm@20090
  1346
wenzelm@20090
  1347
  Term.variant		->  Name.variant
wenzelm@20090
  1348
  Term.variantlist	->  Name.variant_list  (*canonical argument order*)
wenzelm@20090
  1349
  Term.invent_names	->  Name.invent_list
wenzelm@20090
  1350
wenzelm@20090
  1351
Note that low-level renaming rarely occurs in new code -- operations
wenzelm@20090
  1352
from structure Variable are used instead (see below).
wenzelm@20090
  1353
wenzelm@20040
  1354
* Pure: structure Variable provides fundamental operations for proper
wenzelm@20040
  1355
treatment of fixed/schematic variables in a context.  For example,
wenzelm@20040
  1356
Variable.import introduces fixes for schematics of given facts and
wenzelm@20040
  1357
Variable.export reverses the effect (up to renaming) -- this replaces
wenzelm@20040
  1358
various freeze_thaw operations.
wenzelm@20040
  1359
wenzelm@18567
  1360
* Pure: structure Goal provides simple interfaces for
wenzelm@17981
  1361
init/conclude/finish and tactical prove operations (replacing former
wenzelm@20040
  1362
Tactic.prove).  Goal.prove is the canonical way to prove results
wenzelm@20040
  1363
within a given context; Goal.prove_global is a degraded version for
wenzelm@20040
  1364
theory level goals, including a global Drule.standard.  Note that
wenzelm@20040
  1365
OldGoals.prove_goalw_cterm has long been obsolete, since it is
wenzelm@20040
  1366
ill-behaved in a local proof context (e.g. with local fixes/assumes or
wenzelm@20040
  1367
in a locale context).
wenzelm@17981
  1368
wenzelm@18815
  1369
* Isar: simplified treatment of user-level errors, using exception
wenzelm@18687
  1370
ERROR of string uniformly.  Function error now merely raises ERROR,
wenzelm@18686
  1371
without any side effect on output channels.  The Isar toplevel takes
wenzelm@18686
  1372
care of proper display of ERROR exceptions.  ML code may use plain
wenzelm@18686
  1373
handle/can/try; cat_error may be used to concatenate errors like this:
wenzelm@18686
  1374
wenzelm@18686
  1375
  ... handle ERROR msg => cat_error msg "..."
wenzelm@18686
  1376
wenzelm@18686
  1377
Toplevel ML code (run directly or through the Isar toplevel) may be
wenzelm@18687
  1378
embedded into the Isar toplevel with exception display/debug like
wenzelm@18687
  1379
this:
wenzelm@18686
  1380
wenzelm@18686
  1381
  Isar.toplevel (fn () => ...)
wenzelm@18686
  1382
wenzelm@18686
  1383
INCOMPATIBILITY, removed special transform_error facilities, removed
wenzelm@18686
  1384
obsolete variants of user-level exceptions (ERROR_MESSAGE,
wenzelm@18686
  1385
Context.PROOF, ProofContext.CONTEXT, Proof.STATE, ProofHistory.FAIL)
wenzelm@18686
  1386
-- use plain ERROR instead.
wenzelm@18686
  1387
wenzelm@18815
  1388
* Isar: theory setup now has type (theory -> theory), instead of a
wenzelm@18722
  1389
list.  INCOMPATIBILITY, may use #> to compose setup functions.
wenzelm@18722
  1390
wenzelm@18815
  1391
* Isar: installed ML toplevel pretty printer for type Proof.context,
wenzelm@18815
  1392
subject to ProofContext.debug/verbose flags.
wenzelm@18815
  1393
wenzelm@18815
  1394
* Isar: Toplevel.theory_to_proof admits transactions that modify the
wenzelm@18815
  1395
theory before entering a proof state.  Transactions now always see a
wenzelm@18815
  1396
quasi-functional intermediate checkpoint, both in interactive and
wenzelm@18590
  1397
batch mode.
wenzelm@18567
  1398
wenzelm@17878
  1399
* Simplifier: the simpset of a running simplification process now
wenzelm@17878
  1400
contains a proof context (cf. Simplifier.the_context), which is the
wenzelm@17878
  1401
very context that the initial simpset has been retrieved from (by
wenzelm@17890
  1402
simpset_of/local_simpset_of).  Consequently, all plug-in components
wenzelm@17878
  1403
(solver, looper etc.) may depend on arbitrary proof data.
wenzelm@17878
  1404
wenzelm@17878
  1405
* Simplifier.inherit_context inherits the proof context (plus the
wenzelm@17878
  1406
local bounds) of the current simplification process; any simproc
wenzelm@17878
  1407
etc. that calls the Simplifier recursively should do this!  Removed
wenzelm@17878
  1408
former Simplifier.inherit_bounds, which is already included here --
wenzelm@17890
  1409
INCOMPATIBILITY.  Tools based on low-level rewriting may even have to
wenzelm@17890
  1410
specify an explicit context using Simplifier.context/theory_context.
wenzelm@17878
  1411
wenzelm@17878
  1412
* Simplifier/Classical Reasoner: more abstract interfaces
wenzelm@17878
  1413
change_simpset/claset for modifying the simpset/claset reference of a
wenzelm@17878
  1414
theory; raw versions simpset/claset_ref etc. have been discontinued --
wenzelm@17878
  1415
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17878
  1416
wenzelm@18540
  1417
* Provers: more generic wrt. syntax of object-logics, avoid hardwired
wenzelm@18540
  1418
"Trueprop" etc.
wenzelm@18540

wenzelm@21471
  1424

  1425
This simplifies use of multiple Isabelle installations.
wenzelm@21471
  1426
wenzelm@20988
  1427
* isabelle-process: option -S (secure mode) disables some critical
wenzelm@20988

  1429
code.
wenzelm@20988
  1430
wenzelm@24210
  1431
* Experimental support for multithreading, using Poly/ML 5.1 (internal
wenzelm@24213
  1432
version from CVS). The theory loader exploits parallelism when
wenzelm@24213
  1433
processing independent theories, following the header specifications.
wenzelm@24213
  1434
The maximum number of worker threads is specified via usedir option -M
wenzelm@24213
  1435
or the "max-threads" setting in Proof General.  User-code needs to
wenzelm@24213
  1436
observe certain guidelines for thread-safe programming, see appendix A
wenzelm@24213
  1437
in the Isar Implementation manual.

  1443
*** General ***
wenzelm@14655
  1444
nipkow@15130
  1445
* Theory headers: the new header syntax for Isar theories is
nipkow@15130
  1446
nipkow@15130
  1447
  theory <name>
wenzelm@16234
  1448
  imports <theory1> ... <theoryN>
wenzelm@16234
  1449
  uses <file1> ... <fileM>
nipkow@15130
  1450
  begin
nipkow@15130
  1451
wenzelm@16234
  1452
where the 'uses' part is optional.  The previous syntax
wenzelm@16234
  1453
wenzelm@16234
  1454
  theory <name> = <theory1> + ... + <theoryN>:
wenzelm@16234
  1455
wenzelm@16717
  1456
will disappear in the next release.  Use isatool fixheaders to convert
wenzelm@16717
  1457
existing theory files.  Note that there is no change in ancient
wenzelm@17371
  1458
non-Isar theories now, but these will disappear soon.
nipkow@15130
  1459
berghofe@15475
  1460
* Theory loader: parent theories can now also be referred to via
wenzelm@16234
  1461
relative and absolute paths.
wenzelm@16234
  1462
wenzelm@17408
  1463
* Command 'find_theorems' searches for a list of criteria instead of a
wenzelm@17408
  1464
list of constants. Known criteria are: intro, elim, dest, name:string,
wenzelm@17408
  1465
simp:term, and any term. Criteria can be preceded by '-' to select
wenzelm@17408
  1466
theorems that do not match. Intro, elim, dest select theorems that
wenzelm@17408
  1467
match the current goal, name:s selects theorems whose fully qualified
wenzelm@17408
  1468
name contain s, and simp:term selects all simplification rules whose
wenzelm@17408
  1469
lhs match term.  Any other term is interpreted as pattern and selects
wenzelm@17408
  1470
all theorems matching the pattern. Available in ProofGeneral under
wenzelm@17408
  1471
'ProofGeneral -> Find Theorems' or C-c C-f.  Example:
wenzelm@16234
  1472
wenzelm@17275
  1473
  C-c C-f (100) "(_::nat) + _ + _" intro -name: "HOL."
wenzelm@16234
  1474
wenzelm@16234
  1475
prints the last 100 theorems matching the pattern "(_::nat) + _ + _",
wenzelm@16234
  1476
matching the current goal as introduction rule and not having "HOL."
wenzelm@16234
  1477
in their name (i.e. not being defined in theory HOL).
wenzelm@16013
  1478
wenzelm@17408
  1479
* Command 'thms_containing' has been discontinued in favour of
wenzelm@17408
  1480
'find_theorems'; INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17408
  1481
wenzelm@17385
  1482
* Communication with Proof General is now 8bit clean, which means that
wenzelm@17385
  1483
Unicode text in UTF-8 encoding may be used within theory texts (both
wenzelm@17408
  1484
formal and informal parts).  Cf. option -U of the Isabelle Proof
wenzelm@17538
  1485
General interface.  Here are some simple examples (cf. src/HOL/ex):

* Improved efficiency of the Simplifier and, to a lesser degree, the
wenzelm@17425
  1491
Classical Reasoner.  Typical big applications run around 2 times
wenzelm@17425
  1492

*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@15703
  1496
wenzelm@16234
  1497
* Commands 'display_drafts' and 'print_drafts' perform simple output
wenzelm@16234
  1498
of raw sources.  Only those symbols that do not require additional
wenzelm@16234
  1499
LaTeX packages (depending on comments in isabellesym.sty) are
wenzelm@16234
  1500
displayed properly, everything else is left verbatim.  isatool display
wenzelm@16234
  1501
and isatool print are used as front ends (these are subject to the
wenzelm@16234
  1502
DVI/PDF_VIEWER and PRINT_COMMAND settings, respectively).
wenzelm@16234
  1503
wenzelm@17047
  1504
* Command tags control specific markup of certain regions of text,
wenzelm@17047
  1505
notably folding and hiding.  Predefined tags include "theory" (for
wenzelm@17047
  1506
theory begin and end), "proof" for proof commands, and "ML" for
wenzelm@17047
  1507
commands involving ML code; the additional tags "visible" and
wenzelm@17047
  1508
"invisible" are unused by default.  Users may give explicit tag
wenzelm@17047
  1509
specifications in the text, e.g. ''by %invisible (auto)''.  The
wenzelm@17047
  1510
interpretation of tags is determined by the LaTeX job during document
wenzelm@17047
  1511
preparation: see option -V of isatool usedir, or options -n and -t of
wenzelm@17047
  1512
isatool document, or even the LaTeX macros \isakeeptag, \isafoldtag,
wenzelm@17047
  1513
\isadroptag.
wenzelm@17047
  1514
wenzelm@17047
  1515
Several document versions may be produced at the same time via isatool
wenzelm@17047
  1516
usedir (the generated index.html will link all of them).  Typical
wenzelm@17047
  1517
specifications include ''-V document=theory,proof,ML'' to present
wenzelm@17047
  1518
theory/proof/ML parts faithfully, ''-V outline=/proof,/ML'' to fold
wenzelm@17047
  1519
proof and ML commands, and ''-V mutilated=-theory,-proof,-ML'' to omit
wenzelm@17047
  1520
these parts without any formal replacement text.  The Isabelle site
wenzelm@17047
  1521
default settings produce ''document'' and ''outline'' versions as
wenzelm@17047
  1522
specified above.

* Several new antiquotations:
wenzelm@15979

wenzelm@15979
  1526
  @{term_type term} prints a term with its type annotated;
wenzelm@15979
  1527
wenzelm@15979
  1528
  @{typeof term} prints the type of a term;
wenzelm@15979
  1529
wenzelm@16234
  1530
  @{const const} is the same as @{term const}, but checks that the
wenzelm@16234
  1531
  argument is a known logical constant;
wenzelm@15979
  1532
wenzelm@15979
  1533
  @{term_style style term} and @{thm_style style thm} print a term or
wenzelm@16234
  1534
  theorem applying a "style" to it
wenzelm@16234
  1535
wenzelm@17117

Predefined styles are 'lhs' and 'rhs' printing the lhs/rhs of
wenzelm@16234
  1539
definitions, equations, inequations etc., 'concl' printing only the
schirmer@17393
  1540
conclusion of a meta-logical statement theorem, and 'prem1' .. 'prem19'
wenzelm@16234
  1541
to print the specified premise.  TermStyle.add_style provides an ML
wenzelm@16234
  1542
interface for introducing further styles.  See also the "LaTeX Sugar"
wenzelm@17117
  1543
document practical applications.  The ML antiquotation prints
wenzelm@17117
  1544
type-checked ML expressions verbatim.
wenzelm@16234
  1545
wenzelm@17259
  1546
* Markup commands 'chapter', 'section', 'subsection', 'subsubsection',
wenzelm@17259
  1547
and 'text' support optional locale specification '(in loc)', which
wenzelm@17269
  1548
specifies the default context for interpreting antiquotations.  For
wenzelm@17269
  1549
example: 'text (in lattice) {* @{thm inf_assoc}*}'.
wenzelm@17259
  1550
wenzelm@17259
  1551
* Option 'locale=NAME' of antiquotations specifies an alternative
wenzelm@17259
  1552
context interpreting the subsequent argument.  For example: @{thm
wenzelm@17269
  1553
[locale=lattice] inf_assoc}.
wenzelm@17259
  1554
wenzelm@17097
  1555
* Proper output of proof terms (@{prf ...} and @{full_prf ...}) within
wenzelm@17097
  1556
a proof context.
wenzelm@17097
  1557
wenzelm@17097
  1558
* Proper output of antiquotations for theory commands involving a
wenzelm@17097
  1559
proof context (such as 'locale' or 'theorem (in loc) ...').
wenzelm@17097
  1560
wenzelm@17193
  1561
* Delimiters of outer tokens (string etc.) now produce separate LaTeX
wenzelm@17193
  1562
macros (\isachardoublequoteopen, isachardoublequoteclose etc.).
wenzelm@17193
  1563
wenzelm@17193
  1564
* isatool usedir: new option -C (default true) controls whether option
wenzelm@17193
  1565
-D should include a copy of the original document directory; -C false
wenzelm@17193
  1566
prevents unwanted effects such as copying of administrative CVS data.

* Considerably improved version of 'constdefs' command.  Now performs
wenzelm@16234
  1572
automatic type-inference of declared constants; additional support for
wenzelm@16234
  1573
local structure declarations (cf. locales and HOL records), see also
wenzelm@16234
  1574
isar-ref manual.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY: need to observe strictly
wenzelm@16234
  1575
sequential dependencies of definitions within a single 'constdefs'
wenzelm@16234
  1576
section; moreover, the declared name needs to be an identifier.  If
wenzelm@16234
  1577
all fails, consider to fall back on 'consts' and 'defs' separately.
wenzelm@16234
  1578
wenzelm@16234
  1579
* Improved indexed syntax and implicit structures.  First of all,
wenzelm@16234
  1580
indexed syntax provides a notational device for subscripted
wenzelm@16234
  1581
application, using the new syntax \<^bsub>term\<^esub> for arbitrary
wenzelm@16234
  1582
expressions.  Secondly, in a local context with structure
wenzelm@16234
  1583
declarations, number indexes \<^sub>n or the empty index (default
wenzelm@16234
  1584
number 1) refer to a certain fixed variable implicitly; option
wenzelm@16234
  1585
show_structs controls printing of implicit structures.  Typical
wenzelm@16234
  1586
applications of these concepts involve record types and locales.
wenzelm@16234
  1587
wenzelm@16234
  1588
* New command 'no_syntax' removes grammar declarations (and
wenzelm@16234
  1589
translations) resulting from the given syntax specification, which is
wenzelm@16234
  1590
interpreted in the same manner as for the 'syntax' command.
wenzelm@16234
  1591
wenzelm@16234
  1592
* 'Advanced' translation functions (parse_translation etc.) may depend
wenzelm@16234
  1593
on the signature of the theory context being presently used for
wenzelm@16234
  1594
parsing/printing, see also isar-ref manual.
wenzelm@16234
  1595
wenzelm@16856
  1596
* Improved 'oracle' command provides a type-safe interface to turn an
wenzelm@16856
  1597
ML expression of type theory -> T -> term into a primitive rule of
wenzelm@16856
  1598
type theory -> T -> thm (i.e. the functionality of Thm.invoke_oracle
wenzelm@16856
  1599
is already included here); see also FOL/ex/IffExample.thy;
wenzelm@16856
  1600
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@16856
  1601
wenzelm@17275
  1602
* axclass: name space prefix for class "c" is now "c_class" (was "c"
wenzelm@17275
  1603
before); "cI" is no longer bound, use "c.intro" instead.
wenzelm@17275
  1604
INCOMPATIBILITY.  This change avoids clashes of fact bindings for
wenzelm@17275
  1605
axclasses vs. locales.
wenzelm@17275
  1606
wenzelm@16234
  1607
* Improved internal renaming of symbolic identifiers -- attach primes
wenzelm@16234
  1608
instead of base 26 numbers.
wenzelm@16234
  1609
wenzelm@16234
  1610
* New flag show_question_marks controls printing of leading question
wenzelm@16234
  1611
marks in schematic variable names.
wenzelm@16234
  1612
wenzelm@16234
  1613
* In schematic variable names, *any* symbol following \<^isub> or
wenzelm@16234
  1614
\<^isup> is now treated as part of the base name.  For example, the
wenzelm@16234
  1615
following works without printing of awkward ".0" indexes:
wenzelm@16234
  1616
wenzelm@16234
  1617
  lemma "x\<^isub>1 = x\<^isub>2 ==> x\<^isub>2 = x\<^isub>1"
wenzelm@16234
  1618
    by simp
wenzelm@16234
  1619
wenzelm@16234
  1620
* Inner syntax includes (*(*nested*) comments*).
wenzelm@16234
  1621
wenzelm@17548
  1622
* Pretty printer now supports unbreakable blocks, specified in mixfix
wenzelm@16234
  1623
annotations as "(00...)".
wenzelm@16234
  1624
wenzelm@16234
  1625
* Clear separation of logical types and nonterminals, where the latter
wenzelm@16234
  1626
may only occur in 'syntax' specifications or type abbreviations.
wenzelm@16234
  1627
Before that distinction was only partially implemented via type class
wenzelm@16234
  1628
"logic" vs. "{}".  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY in rare cases of improper
wenzelm@16234
  1629
use of 'types'/'consts' instead of 'nonterminals'/'syntax'.  Some very
wenzelm@16234
  1630
exotic syntax specifications may require further adaption
wenzelm@17691
  1631
(e.g. Cube/Cube.thy).
wenzelm@16234
  1632
wenzelm@16234
  1633
* Removed obsolete type class "logic", use the top sort {} instead.
wenzelm@16234
  1634
Note that non-logical types should be declared as 'nonterminals'
wenzelm@16234
  1635
rather than 'types'.  INCOMPATIBILITY for new object-logic
wenzelm@16234
  1636
specifications.
wenzelm@16234
  1637
ballarin@17095
  1638
* Attributes 'induct' and 'cases': type or set names may now be
ballarin@17095
  1639
locally fixed variables as well.
ballarin@17095
  1640
wenzelm@16234
  1641
* Simplifier: can now control the depth to which conditional rewriting
wenzelm@16234
  1642
is traced via the PG menu Isabelle -> Settings -> Trace Simp Depth
wenzelm@16234
  1643
Limit.
wenzelm@16234
  1644
wenzelm@16234
  1645
* Simplifier: simplification procedures may now take the current
wenzelm@16234
  1646
simpset into account (cf. Simplifier.simproc(_i) / mk_simproc
wenzelm@16234
  1647
interface), which is very useful for calling the Simplifier
wenzelm@16234
  1648
recursively.  Minor INCOMPATIBILITY: the 'prems' argument of simprocs
wenzelm@16234
  1649
is gone -- use prems_of_ss on the simpset instead.  Moreover, the
wenzelm@16234
  1650
low-level mk_simproc no longer applies Logic.varify internally, to
wenzelm@16234
  1651
allow for use in a context of fixed variables.
wenzelm@16234
  1652
wenzelm@16234
  1653
* thin_tac now works even if the assumption being deleted contains !!
wenzelm@16234
  1654
or ==>.  More generally, erule now works even if the major premise of
wenzelm@16234
  1655
the elimination rule contains !! or ==>.
wenzelm@16234
  1656
wenzelm@17597
  1657
* Method 'rules' has been renamed to 'iprover'. INCOMPATIBILITY.
nipkow@17590
  1658
wenzelm@16234
  1659
* Reorganized bootstrapping of the Pure theories; CPure is now derived
wenzelm@16234
  1660
from Pure, which contains all common declarations already.  Both
wenzelm@16234
  1661
theories are defined via plain Isabelle/Isar .thy files.
wenzelm@16234
  1662
INCOMPATIBILITY: elements of CPure (such as the CPure.intro /
wenzelm@16234
  1663
CPure.elim / CPure.dest attributes) now appear in the Pure name space;
wenzelm@16234
  1664
use isatool fixcpure to adapt your theory and ML sources.
wenzelm@16234
  1665
wenzelm@16234
  1666
* New syntax 'name(i-j, i-, i, ...)' for referring to specific
wenzelm@16234
  1667
selections of theorems in named facts via index ranges.
wenzelm@16234
  1668
wenzelm@17097
  1669
* 'print_theorems': in theory mode, really print the difference
wenzelm@17097
  1670
wrt. the last state (works for interactive theory development only),
wenzelm@17097
  1671
in proof mode print all local facts (cf. 'print_facts');
wenzelm@17097
  1672
wenzelm@17397
  1673
* 'hide': option '(open)' hides only base names.
wenzelm@17397
  1674
wenzelm@17275
  1675
* More efficient treatment of intermediate checkpoints in interactive
wenzelm@17275
  1676
theory development.
wenzelm@17275
  1677
berghofe@17663
  1678
* Code generator is now invoked via code_module (incremental code
wenzelm@17664
  1679
generation) and code_library (modular code generation, ML structures
wenzelm@17664
  1680
for each theory).  INCOMPATIBILITY: new keywords 'file' and 'contains'
wenzelm@17664
  1681
must be quoted when used as identifiers.
wenzelm@17664
  1682
wenzelm@17664
  1683
* New 'value' command for reading, evaluating and printing terms using
wenzelm@17664
  1684
the code generator.  INCOMPATIBILITY: command keyword 'value' must be
wenzelm@17664
  1685
quoted when used as identifier.

*** Locales ***
ballarin@17095
  1689
wenzelm@17385
  1690
* New commands for the interpretation of locale expressions in
wenzelm@17385
  1691
theories (1), locales (2) and proof contexts (3).  These generate
wenzelm@17385
  1692
proof obligations from the expression specification.  After the
wenzelm@17385
  1693
obligations have been discharged, theorems of the expression are added
wenzelm@17385
  1694
to the theory, target locale or proof context.  The synopsis of the
wenzelm@17385
  1695
commands is a follows:
wenzelm@17385
  1696
ballarin@17095
  1697
  (1) interpretation expr inst
ballarin@17095
  1698
  (2) interpretation target < expr
ballarin@17095
  1699
  (3) interpret expr inst
wenzelm@17385
  1700
ballarin@17095
  1701
Interpretation in theories and proof contexts require a parameter
ballarin@17095
  1702
instantiation of terms from the current context.  This is applied to
wenzelm@17385
  1703
specifications and theorems of the interpreted expression.
wenzelm@17385
  1704
Interpretation in locales only permits parameter renaming through the
wenzelm@17385
  1705
locale expression.  Interpretation is smart in that interpretations
wenzelm@17385
  1706
that are active already do not occur in proof obligations, neither are
wenzelm@17385
  1707
instantiated theorems stored in duplicate.  Use 'print_interps' to
wenzelm@17385
  1708
inspect active interpretations of a particular locale.  For details,
ballarin@17436
  1709
see the Isar Reference manual.  Examples can be found in
ballarin@17436
  1710
HOL/Finite_Set.thy and HOL/Algebra/UnivPoly.thy.
wenzelm@16234
  1711
wenzelm@16234
  1712
INCOMPATIBILITY: former 'instantiate' has been withdrawn, use
wenzelm@16234
  1713
'interpret' instead.
wenzelm@16234
  1714
wenzelm@17385
  1715
* New context element 'constrains' for adding type constraints to
wenzelm@17385
  1716
parameters.
wenzelm@17385
  1717
wenzelm@17385
  1718
* Context expressions: renaming of parameters with syntax
wenzelm@17385
  1719
redeclaration.
ballarin@17095
  1720
ballarin@17095
  1721
* Locale declaration: 'includes' disallowed.
ballarin@17095
  1722
wenzelm@16234
  1723
* Proper static binding of attribute syntax -- i.e. types / terms /
wenzelm@16234
  1724
facts mentioned as arguments are always those of the locale definition
wenzelm@16234
  1725
context, independently of the context of later invocations.  Moreover,
wenzelm@16234
  1726
locale operations (renaming and type / term instantiation) are applied
wenzelm@16234
  1727
to attribute arguments as expected.
wenzelm@16234
  1728
wenzelm@16234
  1729
INCOMPATIBILITY of the ML interface: always pass Attrib.src instead of
wenzelm@16234
  1730
actual attributes; rare situations may require Attrib.attribute to
wenzelm@16234
  1731
embed those attributes into Attrib.src that lack concrete syntax.
wenzelm@16234
  1732
Attribute implementations need to cooperate properly with the static
wenzelm@16234
  1733
binding mechanism.  Basic parsers Args.XXX_typ/term/prop and
wenzelm@16234
  1734
Attrib.XXX_thm etc. already do the right thing without further
wenzelm@16234
  1735
intervention.  Only unusual applications -- such as "where" or "of"
wenzelm@16234
  1736
(cf. src/Pure/Isar/attrib.ML), which process arguments depending both
wenzelm@16234
  1737
on the context and the facts involved -- may have to assign parsed
wenzelm@16234
  1738
values to argument tokens explicitly.
wenzelm@16234
  1739
wenzelm@16234
  1740
* Changed parameter management in theorem generation for long goal
wenzelm@16234
  1741
statements with 'includes'.  INCOMPATIBILITY: produces a different
wenzelm@16234
  1742
theorem statement in rare situations.
wenzelm@16234
  1743
ballarin@17228
  1744
* Locale inspection command 'print_locale' omits notes elements.  Use
ballarin@17228

'print_locale!' to have them included in the output.

  1751
single-step rewriting: it now works in bound variable contexts. New is
wenzelm@16234
  1752
'subst (asm)', for rewriting an assumption.  INCOMPATIBILITY: may
wenzelm@16234
  1753
rewrite a different subterm than the original subst method, which is

reflexive-transitive closure of relations.
wenzelm@16234

wenzelm@16234
  1764
wenzelm@16234
  1765
* Provers/simplifier.ML has been moved to Pure, where Simplifier.setup

The symbol \<some> is displayed as the alternative epsilon of LaTeX

wenzelm@16234
  1779
Moreover, the mathematically important symbolic identifier \<epsilon>
wenzelm@16234

becomes available as variable, constant etc.  INCOMPATIBILITY,
wenzelm@16234

  1783
Similarly for all quantifiers: "ALL x > y" etc.  The x-symbol for >=
wenzelm@17371
  1784
is \<ge>. New transitivity rules have been added to HOL/Orderings.thy to
avigad@17016
  1785
support corresponding Isar calculations.
wenzelm@16234
  1786
wenzelm@16234

* Theory Finite_Set: changed the syntax for 'setsum', summation over
wenzelm@16234
  1811
finite sets: "setsum (%x. e) A", which used to be "\<Sum>x:A. e", is
wenzelm@17371
  1812
now either "SUM x:A. e" or "\<Sum>x \<in> A. e". The bound variable can
paulson@17189
  1813
be a tuple pattern.
wenzelm@16234
  1814
wenzelm@16234
  1815
Some new syntax forms are available:
wenzelm@16234
  1816
wenzelm@16234
  1817
  "\<Sum>x | P. e"      for     "setsum (%x. e) {x. P}"
wenzelm@16234
  1818
  "\<Sum>x = a..b. e"   for     "setsum (%x. e) {a..b}"
wenzelm@16234
  1819
  "\<Sum>x = a..<b. e"  for     "setsum (%x. e) {a..<b}"
wenzelm@16234
  1820
  "\<Sum>x < k. e"      for     "setsum (%x. e) {..<k}"
wenzelm@16234
  1821
wenzelm@16234
  1822
The latter form "\<Sum>x < k. e" used to be based on a separate
wenzelm@16234
  1823
function "Summation", which has been discontinued.
wenzelm@16234
  1824
wenzelm@16234
  1825
* theory Finite_Set: in structured induction proofs, the insert case
wenzelm@16234
  1826
is now 'case (insert x F)' instead of the old counterintuitive 'case
wenzelm@16234
  1827
(insert F x)'.
wenzelm@16234
  1828
wenzelm@16234
  1829
* The 'refute' command has been extended to support a much larger
wenzelm@16234
  1830
fragment of HOL, including axiomatic type classes, constdefs and
wenzelm@16234
  1831
typedefs, inductive datatypes and recursion.
wenzelm@16234
  1832
webertj@17700
  1833
* New tactics 'sat' and 'satx' to prove propositional tautologies.
webertj@17700
  1834
Requires zChaff with proof generation to be installed.  See
webertj@17700
  1835
HOL/ex/SAT_Examples.thy for examples.
webertj@17619
  1836
wenzelm@16234
  1837
* Datatype induction via method 'induct' now preserves the name of the
wenzelm@16234
  1838
induction variable. For example, when proving P(xs::'a list) by
wenzelm@16234
  1839
induction on xs, the induction step is now P(xs) ==> P(a#xs) rather
wenzelm@16234
  1840
than P(list) ==> P(a#list) as previously.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY
wenzelm@16234
  1841
in unstructured proof scripts.
wenzelm@16234
  1842
wenzelm@16234
  1843
* Reworked implementation of records.  Improved scalability for
wenzelm@16234
  1844
records with many fields, avoiding performance problems for type
wenzelm@16234
  1845
inference. Records are no longer composed of nested field types, but
wenzelm@16234
  1846
of nested extension types. Therefore the record type only grows linear
wenzelm@16234
  1847
in the number of extensions and not in the number of fields.  The
wenzelm@16234
  1848
top-level (users) view on records is preserved.  Potential
wenzelm@16234
  1849
INCOMPATIBILITY only in strange cases, where the theory depends on the
wenzelm@16234
  1850
old record representation. The type generated for a record is called
wenzelm@16234
  1851
<record_name>_ext_type.
wenzelm@16234
  1852
wenzelm@16234
  1853
Flag record_quick_and_dirty_sensitive can be enabled to skip the
wenzelm@16234
  1854
proofs triggered by a record definition or a simproc (if
wenzelm@16234
  1855
quick_and_dirty is enabled).  Definitions of large records can take
wenzelm@16234
  1856
quite long.
wenzelm@16234
  1857
wenzelm@16234
  1858
New simproc record_upd_simproc for simplification of multiple record
wenzelm@16234
  1859
updates enabled by default.  Moreover, trivial updates are also
wenzelm@16234
  1860
removed: r(|x := x r|) = r.  INCOMPATIBILITY: old proofs break
wenzelm@16234
  1861
occasionally, since simplification is more powerful by default.
wenzelm@16234
  1862
wenzelm@17275
  1863
* typedef: proper support for polymorphic sets, which contain extra
wenzelm@17275
  1864
type-variables in the term.
wenzelm@17275
  1865
wenzelm@16234
  1866
* Simplifier: automatically reasons about transitivity chains
wenzelm@16234
  1867
involving "trancl" (r^+) and "rtrancl" (r^*) by setting up tactics
wenzelm@16234
  1868
provided by Provers/trancl.ML as additional solvers.  INCOMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@16234
  1869
old proofs break occasionally as simplification may now solve more
wenzelm@16234
  1870
goals than previously.
wenzelm@16234
  1871
wenzelm@16234
  1872
* Simplifier: converts x <= y into x = y if assumption y <= x is
wenzelm@16234
  1873
present.  Works for all partial orders (class "order"), in particular
wenzelm@16234
  1874
numbers and sets.  For linear orders (e.g. numbers) it treats ~ x < y
wenzelm@16234
  1875
just like y <= x.
wenzelm@16234
  1876
wenzelm@16234
  1877
* Simplifier: new simproc for "let x = a in f x".  If a is a free or
wenzelm@16234
  1878
bound variable or a constant then the let is unfolded.  Otherwise
wenzelm@16234
  1879
first a is simplified to b, and then f b is simplified to g. If
wenzelm@16234
  1880
possible we abstract b from g arriving at "let x = b in h x",
wenzelm@16234
  1881
otherwise we unfold the let and arrive at g.  The simproc can be
wenzelm@16234
  1882
enabled/disabled by the reference use_let_simproc.  Potential
wenzelm@16234
  1883
INCOMPATIBILITY since simplification is more powerful by default.

* Hyperreal: new method "transfer" that implements the transfer

principle of nonstandard analysis. With a subgoal that mentions
huffman@17442
  2105
nonstandard types like "'a star", the command "apply transfer"
huffman@17442
  2106
replaces it with an equivalent one that mentions only standard types.

*** HOLCF ***
wenzelm@14682
  2114
wenzelm@17533
  2115
* Discontinued special version of 'constdefs' (which used to support
wenzelm@17533
  2116
continuous functions) in favor of the general Pure one with full
wenzelm@17533
  2117
type-inference.
wenzelm@17533
  2118
wenzelm@17533
  2119
* New simplification procedure for solving continuity conditions; it
wenzelm@17533
  2120
is much faster on terms with many nested lambda abstractions (cubic
huffman@17442
  2121
instead of exponential time).
huffman@17442
  2122
wenzelm@17533
  2123
* New syntax for domain package: selector names are now optional.
huffman@17442
  2124
Parentheses should be omitted unless argument is lazy, for example:
huffman@17442
  2125
huffman@17442

  domain 'a stream = cons "'a" (lazy "'a stream")
huffman@17442

* New command 'fixrec' for defining recursive functions with pattern
wenzelm@17533
  2129
matching; defining multiple functions with mutual recursion is also
wenzelm@17533
  2130
supported.  Patterns may include the constants cpair, spair, up, sinl,
wenzelm@17533
  2131
sinr, or any data constructor defined by the domain package. The given
wenzelm@17533
  2132

* New commands 'cpodef' and 'pcpodef' for defining predicate subtypes
wenzelm@17533
  2136
of cpo and pcpo types. Syntax is exactly like the 'typedef' command,
wenzelm@17533
  2137
but the proof obligation additionally includes an admissibility
wenzelm@17533
  2138
requirement. The packages generate instances of class cpo or pcpo,
wenzelm@17533
  2139
with continuity and strictness theorems for Rep and Abs.

  2176
None and Some, as well as exception Option.Option instead of OPTION.

* Pure/library.ML: the exception LIST has been given up in favour of
wenzelm@16860
  2181
the standard exceptions Empty and Subscript, as well as
wenzelm@16860
  2182
Library.UnequalLengths.  Function like Library.hd and Library.tl are

wenzelm@16860
  2185
A number of basic list functions are no longer exported to the ML
wenzelm@16860
  2186
toplevel, as they are variants of predefined functions.  The following
wenzelm@16234
  2187
suggests how one can translate existing code:
wenzelm@15973
  2188
wenzelm@15973
  2189
    rev_append xs ys = List.revAppend (xs, ys)
wenzelm@15973
  2190
    nth_elem (i, xs) = List.nth (xs, i)
wenzelm@15973
  2191
    last_elem xs = List.last xs
wenzelm@15973
  2192
    flat xss = List.concat xss
wenzelm@16234
  2193
    seq fs = List.app fs
wenzelm@15973

    mapfilter f xs = List.mapPartial f xs
wenzelm@15973
  2196
wenzelm@16860
  2197
* Pure/library.ML: several combinators for linear functional
wenzelm@16860
  2198
transformations, notably reverse application and composition:
wenzelm@16860
  2199
wenzelm@17371
  2200
  x |> f                f #> g

  (x, y) |-> f          f #-> g
wenzelm@16860
  2202
haftmann@17495
  2203
* Pure/library.ML: introduced/changed precedence of infix operators:
haftmann@17495
  2204
haftmann@17495
  2205
  infix 1 |> |-> ||> ||>> |>> |>>> #> #->;
haftmann@17495

  infix 4 ~~ upto downto;
haftmann@17495
  2209
haftmann@17495

haftmann@17495
  2211
infix operators.

wenzelm@17408
  2213
* Pure/library.ML: natural list combinators fold, fold_rev, and
haftmann@16869
  2214
fold_map support linear functional transformations and nesting.  For
wenzelm@16860
  2215
example:
wenzelm@16860
  2216
wenzelm@16860
  2217
  fold f [x1, ..., xN] y =
wenzelm@16860
  2218
    y |> f x1 |> ... |> f xN
wenzelm@16860
  2219
wenzelm@16860
  2220
  (fold o fold) f [xs1, ..., xsN] y =
wenzelm@16860
  2221
    y |> fold f xs1 |> ... |> fold f xsN
wenzelm@16860
  2222
wenzelm@16860
  2223
  fold f [x1, ..., xN] =
wenzelm@16860
  2224
    f x1 #> ... #> f xN
wenzelm@16860
  2225
wenzelm@16860
  2226
  (fold o fold) f [xs1, ..., xsN] =
wenzelm@16860

    fold f xs1 #> ... #> fold f xsN
wenzelm@16860
  2228
wenzelm@17408
  2229
* Pure/library.ML: the following selectors on type 'a option are
wenzelm@17408
  2230
available:
wenzelm@17408
  2231
wenzelm@17408
  2232
  the:               'a option -> 'a  (*partial*)

  2233
  these:             'a option -> 'a  where 'a = 'b list

  2234
  the_default: 'a -> 'a option -> 'a

haftmann@17402
  2236
wenzelm@17408
  2237
* Pure/General: structure AList (cf. Pure/General/alist.ML) provides
wenzelm@17408
  2238
basic operations for association lists, following natural argument
haftmann@17564
  2239
order; moreover the explicit equality predicate passed here avoids
haftmann@17495
  2240
potentially expensive polymorphic runtime equality checks.
haftmann@17495
  2241
The old functions may be expressed as follows:
wenzelm@17408
  2242
wenzelm@17408
  2243
  assoc = uncurry (AList.lookup (op =))
wenzelm@17408
  2244
  assocs = these oo AList.lookup (op =)
wenzelm@17408
  2245
  overwrite = uncurry (AList.update (op =)) o swap
wenzelm@17408
  2246
haftmann@17564
  2247
* Pure/General: structure AList (cf. Pure/General/alist.ML) provides
haftmann@17564
  2248
haftmann@17564
  2249
  val make: ('a -> 'b) -> 'a list -> ('a * 'b) list
haftmann@17564

haftmann@17564
  2255
  make_keylist = AList.make
haftmann@17564
  2256
  keyfilter = AList.find (op =)
haftmann@17564
  2257
haftmann@17564
  2258

haftmann@17564
  2259
  avoiding eqtypes. Naive rewrites:
haftmann@17564
  2260
haftmann@17564
  2261
    eq_fst = eq_fst (op =)
haftmann@17564
  2262
    eq_snd = eq_snd (op =)
haftmann@17564
  2263
haftmann@17564
  2264

haftmann@17564
  2265
  Naive rewrites:

wenzelm@17408
  2270
* Pure/General: structure OrdList (cf. Pure/General/ord_list.ML)
wenzelm@17408
  2271
provides a reasonably efficient light-weight implementation of sets as
wenzelm@17408
  2272
lists.
wenzelm@17408
  2273
wenzelm@17408
  2274
* Pure/General: generic tables (cf. Pure/General/table.ML) provide a
wenzelm@17408
  2275
few new operations; existing lookup and update are now curried to
wenzelm@17408
  2276
follow natural argument order (for use with fold etc.);
wenzelm@17408
  2277
INCOMPATIBILITY, use (uncurry Symtab.lookup) etc. as last resort.
wenzelm@17408
  2278
wenzelm@17408
  2279
* Pure/General: output via the Isabelle channels of
wenzelm@17408
  2280
writeln/warning/error etc. is now passed through Output.output, with a
wenzelm@17408
  2281
hook for arbitrary transformations depending on the print_mode
wenzelm@17408
  2282
(cf. Output.add_mode -- the first active mode that provides a output
wenzelm@17408
  2283
function wins).  Already formatted output may be embedded into further
wenzelm@17408
  2284
text via Output.raw; the result of Pretty.string_of/str_of and derived
wenzelm@17408
  2285
functions (string_of_term/cterm/thm etc.) is already marked raw to
wenzelm@17408
  2286
accommodate easy composition of diagnostic messages etc.  Programmers
wenzelm@17408
  2287
rarely need to care about Output.output or Output.raw at all, with
wenzelm@17408
  2288
some notable exceptions: Output.output is required when bypassing the
wenzelm@17408
  2289
standard channels (writeln etc.), or in token translations to produce
wenzelm@17408
  2290
properly formatted results; Output.raw is required when capturing
wenzelm@17408
  2291
already output material that will eventually be presented to the user
wenzelm@17408
  2292
a second time.  For the default print mode, both Output.output and
wenzelm@17408
  2293
Output.raw have no effect.
wenzelm@17408
  2294
wenzelm@17408
  2295
* Pure/General: Output.time_accumulator NAME creates an operator ('a
wenzelm@17408
  2296
-> 'b) -> 'a -> 'b to measure runtime and count invocations; the
wenzelm@17408
  2297
cumulative results are displayed at the end of a batch session.
wenzelm@17408
  2298
wenzelm@17408
  2299
* Pure/General: File.sysify_path and File.quote_sysify path have been
wenzelm@17408
  2300
replaced by File.platform_path and File.shell_path (with appropriate
wenzelm@17408
  2301
hooks).  This provides a clean interface for unusual systems where the
wenzelm@17408
  2302
internal and external process view of file names are different.
wenzelm@17408
  2303
wenzelm@16689
  2304
* Pure: more efficient orders for basic syntactic entities: added
wenzelm@16689
  2305
fast_string_ord, fast_indexname_ord, fast_term_ord; changed sort_ord
wenzelm@16689
  2306
and typ_ord to use fast_string_ord and fast_indexname_ord (term_ord is
wenzelm@16689
  2307
NOT affected); structures Symtab, Vartab, Typtab, Termtab use the fast
wenzelm@16689
  2308
orders now -- potential INCOMPATIBILITY for code that depends on a
wenzelm@16689
  2309
particular order for Symtab.keys, Symtab.dest, etc. (consider using
wenzelm@16689
  2310
Library.sort_strings on result).
wenzelm@16689
  2311
wenzelm@17408
  2312
* Pure/term.ML: combinators fold_atyps, fold_aterms, fold_term_types,
wenzelm@17408
  2313
fold_types traverse types/terms from left to right, observing natural
wenzelm@17408
  2314
argument order.  Supercedes previous foldl_XXX versions, add_frees,
wenzelm@17408
  2315
add_vars etc. have been adapted as well: INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17408
  2316
wenzelm@16151
  2317
* Pure: name spaces have been refined, with significant changes of the
wenzelm@16234
  2318
internal interfaces -- INCOMPATIBILITY.  Renamed cond_extern(_table)
wenzelm@16234
  2319
to extern(_table).  The plain name entry path is superceded by a
wenzelm@16234
  2320
general 'naming' context, which also includes the 'policy' to produce
wenzelm@16234
  2321
a fully qualified name and external accesses of a fully qualified
wenzelm@16234
  2322
name; NameSpace.extend is superceded by context dependent
wenzelm@16234
  2323
Sign.declare_name.  Several theory and proof context operations modify
wenzelm@16234
  2324
the naming context.  Especially note Theory.restore_naming and
wenzelm@16234
  2325
ProofContext.restore_naming to get back to a sane state; note that
wenzelm@16234
  2326
Theory.add_path is no longer sufficient to recover from
wenzelm@16234
  2327
Theory.absolute_path in particular.
wenzelm@16234
  2328
wenzelm@16234
  2329
* Pure: new flags short_names (default false) and unique_names
wenzelm@16234
  2330
(default true) for controlling output of qualified names.  If
wenzelm@16234
  2331
short_names is set, names are printed unqualified.  If unique_names is
wenzelm@16234
  2332
reset, the name prefix is reduced to the minimum required to achieve
wenzelm@16234
  2333
the original result when interning again, even if there is an overlap
wenzelm@16234
  2334
with earlier declarations.
wenzelm@16151
  2335
wenzelm@16456
  2336
* Pure/TheoryDataFun: change of the argument structure; 'prep_ext' is
wenzelm@16456
  2337
now 'extend', and 'merge' gets an additional Pretty.pp argument
wenzelm@16456
  2338
(useful for printing error messages).  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@16456
  2339
wenzelm@16456
  2340
* Pure: major reorganization of the theory context.  Type Sign.sg and
wenzelm@16456
  2341
Theory.theory are now identified, referring to the universal
wenzelm@16456
  2342
Context.theory (see Pure/context.ML).  Actual signature and theory
wenzelm@16456
  2343
content is managed as theory data.  The old code and interfaces were
wenzelm@16456
  2344
spread over many files and structures; the new arrangement introduces
wenzelm@16456
  2345
considerable INCOMPATIBILITY to gain more clarity:
wenzelm@16456
  2346
wenzelm@16456
  2347
  Context -- theory management operations (name, identity, inclusion,
wenzelm@16456
  2348
    parents, ancestors, merge, etc.), plus generic theory data;
wenzelm@16456
  2349
wenzelm@16456
  2350
  Sign -- logical signature and syntax operations (declaring consts,
wenzelm@16456
  2351
    types, etc.), plus certify/read for common entities;
wenzelm@16456
  2352
wenzelm@16456
  2353
  Theory -- logical theory operations (stating axioms, definitions,
wenzelm@16456
  2354
    oracles), plus a copy of logical signature operations (consts,
wenzelm@16456
  2355
    types, etc.); also a few basic management operations (Theory.copy,
wenzelm@16456
  2356
    Theory.merge, etc.)
wenzelm@16456
  2357
wenzelm@16456
  2358
The most basic sign_of operations (Theory.sign_of, Thm.sign_of_thm
wenzelm@16456
  2359
etc.) as well as the sign field in Thm.rep_thm etc. have been retained
wenzelm@16456
  2360
for convenience -- they merely return the theory.
wenzelm@16456
  2361
wenzelm@17193
  2362
* Pure: type Type.tsig is superceded by theory in most interfaces.
wenzelm@17193
  2363
wenzelm@16547
  2364
* Pure: the Isar proof context type is already defined early in Pure
wenzelm@16547
  2365
as Context.proof (note that ProofContext.context and Proof.context are
wenzelm@16547
  2366
aliases, where the latter is the preferred name).  This enables other
wenzelm@16547
  2367
Isabelle components to refer to that type even before Isar is present.
wenzelm@16547
  2368
wenzelm@16373
  2369
* Pure/sign/theory: discontinued named name spaces (i.e. classK,
wenzelm@16373
  2370
typeK, constK, axiomK, oracleK), but provide explicit operations for
wenzelm@16373
  2371
any of these kinds.  For example, Sign.intern typeK is now
wenzelm@16373
  2372
Sign.intern_type, Theory.hide_space Sign.typeK is now
wenzelm@16373
  2373
Theory.hide_types.  Also note that former
wenzelm@16373
  2374
Theory.hide_classes/types/consts are now
wenzelm@16373
  2375
Theory.hide_classes_i/types_i/consts_i, while the non '_i' versions
wenzelm@16373
  2376
internalize their arguments!  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@16373
  2377
wenzelm@16506
  2378
* Pure: get_thm interface (of PureThy and ProofContext) expects
wenzelm@16506
  2379
datatype thmref (with constructors Name and NameSelection) instead of
wenzelm@16506
  2380
plain string -- INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@16506
  2381
wenzelm@16151
  2382
* Pure: cases produced by proof methods specify options, where NONE
wenzelm@16234
  2383
means to remove case bindings -- INCOMPATIBILITY in
wenzelm@16234
  2384
(RAW_)METHOD_CASES.
wenzelm@16151
  2385
wenzelm@16373
  2386
* Pure: the following operations retrieve axioms or theorems from a
wenzelm@16373
  2387
theory node or theory hierarchy, respectively:
wenzelm@16373
  2388
wenzelm@16373
  2389
  Theory.axioms_of: theory -> (string * term) list
wenzelm@16373
  2390
  Theory.all_axioms_of: theory -> (string * term) list
wenzelm@16373
  2391
  PureThy.thms_of: theory -> (string * thm) list
wenzelm@16373
  2392
  PureThy.all_thms_of: theory -> (string * thm) list
wenzelm@16373
  2393
wenzelm@16718
  2394
* Pure: print_tac now outputs the goal through the trace channel.
wenzelm@16718
  2395
wenzelm@17408
  2396
* Isar toplevel: improved diagnostics, mostly for Poly/ML only.
wenzelm@17408
  2397
Reference Toplevel.debug (default false) controls detailed printing
wenzelm@17408
  2398
and tracing of low-level exceptions; Toplevel.profiling (default 0)
wenzelm@17408
  2399
controls execution profiling -- set to 1 for time and 2 for space
wenzelm@17408
  2400
(both increase the runtime).
wenzelm@17408
  2401
wenzelm@17408
  2402
* Isar session: The initial use of ROOT.ML is now always timed,
wenzelm@17408
  2403
i.e. the log will show the actual process times, in contrast to the
wenzelm@17408
  2404
elapsed wall-clock time that the outer shell wrapper produces.
wenzelm@17408
  2405
wenzelm@17408
  2406
* Simplifier: improved handling of bound variables (nameless
wenzelm@16997
  2407
representation, avoid allocating new strings).  Simprocs that invoke
wenzelm@16997
  2408
the Simplifier recursively should use Simplifier.inherit_bounds to
wenzelm@17720
  2409
avoid local name clashes.  Failure to do so produces warnings
wenzelm@17720
  2410
"Simplifier: renamed bound variable ..."; set Simplifier.debug_bounds
wenzelm@17720
  2411
for further details.
wenzelm@16234
  2412
wenzelm@17166
  2413
* ML functions legacy_bindings and use_legacy_bindings produce ML fact
wenzelm@17166
  2414
bindings for all theorems stored within a given theory; this may help
wenzelm@17166
  2415
in porting non-Isar theories to Isar ones, while keeping ML proof
wenzelm@17166
  2416
scripts for the time being.
wenzelm@17166
  2417
wenzelm@17457
  2418
* ML operator HTML.with_charset specifies the charset begin used for
wenzelm@17457
  2419
generated HTML files.  For example:
wenzelm@17457
  2420
wenzelm@17457
  2421
  HTML.with_charset "utf-8" use_thy "Hebrew";
wenzelm@17538
  2422
  HTML.with_charset "utf-8" use_thy "Chinese";

wenzelm@16234
  2425
*** System ***
wenzelm@16234
  2426
wenzelm@16234
  2427
* Allow symlinks to all proper Isabelle executables (Isabelle,
wenzelm@16234
  2428
isabelle, isatool etc.).
wenzelm@16234
  2429
wenzelm@16234
  2430
* ISABELLE_DOC_FORMAT setting specifies preferred document format (for
wenzelm@16234
  2431
isatool doc, isatool mkdir, display_drafts etc.).
wenzelm@16234
  2432
wenzelm@16234
  2433
* isatool usedir: option -f allows specification of the ML file to be
wenzelm@16234
  2434
used by Isabelle; default is ROOT.ML.
wenzelm@16234
  2435
wenzelm@16251
  2436
* New isatool version outputs the version identifier of the Isabelle
wenzelm@16251
  2437
distribution being used.
wenzelm@16251
  2438
wenzelm@16251
  2439
* HOL: new isatool dimacs2hol converts files in DIMACS CNF format
wenzelm@16234
  2440
(containing Boolean satisfiability problems) into Isabelle/HOL
wenzelm@16234
  2441
theories.

*** General ***
skalberg@14171
  2449
ballarin@14398
  2450
* Provers/order.ML:  new efficient reasoner for partial and linear orders.
ballarin@14398
  2451
  Replaces linorder.ML.
ballarin@14398
  2452
wenzelm@14606
  2453
* Pure: Greek letters (except small lambda, \<lambda>), as well as Gothic
wenzelm@14606
  2454
  (\<aa>...\<zz>\<AA>...\<ZZ>), calligraphic (\<A>...\<Z>), and Euler
skalberg@14173
  2455
  (\<a>...\<z>), are now considered normal letters, and can therefore
skalberg@14173
  2456
  be used anywhere where an ASCII letter (a...zA...Z) has until
skalberg@14173
  2457
  now. COMPATIBILITY: This obviously changes the parsing of some
skalberg@14173
  2458
  terms, especially where a symbol has been used as a binder, say
skalberg@14173
  2459
  '\<Pi>x. ...', which is now a type error since \<Pi>x will be parsed
skalberg@14173
  2460
  as an identifier.  Fix it by inserting a space around former
skalberg@14173
  2461
  symbols.  Call 'isatool fixgreek' to try to fix parsing errors in
skalberg@14173
  2462
  existing theory and ML files.
skalberg@14171
  2463
paulson@14237
  2464
* Pure: Macintosh and Windows line-breaks are now allowed in theory files.
paulson@14237
  2465
wenzelm@14731
  2466
* Pure: single letter sub/superscripts (\<^isub> and \<^isup>) are now
wenzelm@14731
  2467
  allowed in identifiers. Similar to Greek letters \<^isub> is now considered
wenzelm@14731
  2468
  a normal (but invisible) letter. For multiple letter subscripts repeat
wenzelm@14731
  2469
  \<^isub> like this: x\<^isub>1\<^isub>2.
kleing@14233
  2470
kleing@14333
  2471
* Pure: There are now sub-/superscripts that can span more than one
kleing@14333
  2472
  character. Text between \<^bsub> and \<^esub> is set in subscript in
wenzelm@14606
  2473
  ProofGeneral and LaTeX, text between \<^bsup> and \<^esup> in
wenzelm@14606
  2474
  superscript. The new control characters are not identifier parts.
kleing@14333
  2475
schirmer@14561
  2476
* Pure: Control-symbols of the form \<^raw:...> will literally print the
wenzelm@14606
  2477
  content of "..." to the latex file instead of \isacntrl... . The "..."
wenzelm@14606
  2478
  may consist of any printable characters excluding the end bracket >.
schirmer@14361
  2479
paulson@14237
  2480
* Pure: Using new Isar command "finalconsts" (or the ML functions
paulson@14237
  2481
  Theory.add_finals or Theory.add_finals_i) it is now possible to
paulson@14237
  2482
  declare constants "final", which prevents their being given a definition
paulson@14237
  2483
  later.  It is useful for constants whose behaviour is fixed axiomatically
skalberg@14224
  2484
  rather than definitionally, such as the meta-logic connectives.
skalberg@14224
  2485
wenzelm@14606
  2486
* Pure: 'instance' now handles general arities with general sorts
wenzelm@14606
  2487
  (i.e. intersections of classes),
skalberg@14503
  2488
kleing@14547
  2489
* Presentation: generated HTML now uses a CSS style sheet to make layout
wenzelm@14731
  2490
  (somewhat) independent of content. It is copied from lib/html/isabelle.css.
kleing@14547
  2491
  It can be changed to alter the colors/layout of generated pages.

*** Isar ***
ballarin@14175
  2495
ballarin@14508
  2496
* Tactic emulation methods rule_tac, erule_tac, drule_tac, frule_tac,
ballarin@14508
  2497
  cut_tac, subgoal_tac and thin_tac:
ballarin@14175
  2498
  - Now understand static (Isar) contexts.  As a consequence, users of Isar
ballarin@14175
  2499
    locales are no longer forced to write Isar proof scripts.
ballarin@14175
  2500
    For details see Isar Reference Manual, paragraph 4.3.2: Further tactic
ballarin@14175
  2501
    emulations.
ballarin@14175
  2502
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: names of variables to be instantiated may no
ballarin@14211
  2503
    longer be enclosed in quotes.  Instead, precede variable name with `?'.
ballarin@14211
  2504
    This is consistent with the instantiation attribute "where".
ballarin@14211
  2505
ballarin@14257
  2506
* Attributes "where" and "of":
ballarin@14285
  2507
  - Now take type variables of instantiated theorem into account when reading
ballarin@14285
  2508
    the instantiation string.  This fixes a bug that caused instantiated
ballarin@14285
  2509
    theorems to have too special types in some circumstances.
ballarin@14285
  2510
  - "where" permits explicit instantiations of type variables.
ballarin@14257
  2511
wenzelm@14556
  2512
* Calculation commands "moreover" and "also" no longer interfere with
wenzelm@14556
  2513
  current facts ("this"), admitting arbitrary combinations with "then"
wenzelm@14556
  2514
  and derived forms.
kleing@14283
  2515
ballarin@14211
  2516
* Locales:
ballarin@14211
  2517
  - Goal statements involving the context element "includes" no longer
ballarin@14211
  2518
    generate theorems with internal delta predicates (those ending on
ballarin@14211
  2519
    "_axioms") in the premise.
ballarin@14211
  2520
    Resolve particular premise with <locale>.intro to obtain old form.
ballarin@14211
  2521
  - Fixed bug in type inference ("unify_frozen") that prevented mix of target
ballarin@14211
  2522
    specification and "includes" elements in goal statement.
ballarin@14254
  2523
  - Rule sets <locale>.intro and <locale>.axioms no longer declared as
ballarin@14254
  2524
    [intro?] and [elim?] (respectively) by default.
ballarin@14508
  2525
  - Experimental command for instantiation of locales in proof contexts:
ballarin@14551
  2526
        instantiate <label>[<attrs>]: <loc>
ballarin@14508
  2527
    Instantiates locale <loc> and adds all its theorems to the current context
ballarin@14551
  2528
    taking into account their attributes.  Label and attrs are optional
ballarin@14551
  2529
    modifiers, like in theorem declarations.  If present, names of
ballarin@14551
  2530
    instantiated theorems are qualified with <label>, and the attributes
ballarin@14551
  2531
    <attrs> are applied after any attributes these theorems might have already.
ballarin@14551
  2532
      If the locale has assumptions, a chained fact of the form
ballarin@14508
  2533
    "<loc> t1 ... tn" is expected from which instantiations of the parameters
ballarin@14551
  2534
    are derived.  The command does not support old-style locales declared
ballarin@14551
  2535
    with "locale (open)".
ballarin@14551
  2536
      A few (very simple) examples can be found in FOL/ex/LocaleInst.thy.
ballarin@14175
  2537

  2544
* Proof import: new image HOL4 contains the imported library from
kleing@14624
  2545
  the HOL4 system with about 2500 theorems. It is imported by
kleing@14624
  2546
  replaying proof terms produced by HOL4 in Isabelle. The HOL4 image
kleing@14624
  2547
  can be used like any other Isabelle image.  See

  2548
  HOL/Import/HOL/README for more information.

  2550
* Simplifier:
ballarin@14398
  2551
  - Much improved handling of linear and partial orders.
ballarin@14398
  2552
    Reasoners for linear and partial orders are set up for type classes
ballarin@14398
  2553
    "linorder" and "order" respectively, and are added to the default simpset
ballarin@14398
  2554
    as solvers.  This means that the simplifier can build transitivity chains
ballarin@14398
  2555
    to solve goals from the assumptions.
ballarin@14398
  2556
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: old proofs break occasionally.  Typically, applications
ballarin@14398
  2557
    of blast or auto after simplification become unnecessary because the goal
ballarin@14398
  2558
    is solved by simplification already.
ballarin@14398

* Numerics: new theory Ring_and_Field contains over 250 basic numerical laws,
paulson@14389
  2561
    all proved in axiomatic type classes for semirings, rings and fields.
paulson@14389
  2562
paulson@14389
  2563
* Numerics:
paulson@14389
  2564
  - Numeric types (nat, int, and in HOL-Complex rat, real, complex, etc.) are
wenzelm@14731
  2565
    now formalized using the Ring_and_Field theory mentioned above.
paulson@14389
