*** General ***
wenzelm@14655
     8
nipkow@15130
     9
* Theory headers: the new header syntax for Isar theories is
nipkow@15130
    10
nipkow@15130
    11
  theory <name>
wenzelm@16234
    12
  imports <theory1> ... <theoryN>
wenzelm@16234
    13
  uses <file1> ... <fileM>
nipkow@15130
    14
  begin
nipkow@15130
    15
wenzelm@16234
    16
where the 'uses' part is optional.  The previous syntax
wenzelm@16234
    17
wenzelm@16234
    18
  theory <name> = <theory1> + ... + <theoryN>:
wenzelm@16234
    19
wenzelm@16717
    20
will disappear in the next release.  Use isatool fixheaders to convert
wenzelm@16717
    21
existing theory files.  Note that there is no change in ancient
wenzelm@17371
    22
non-Isar theories now, but these will disappear soon.
nipkow@15130
    23
berghofe@15475
    24
* Theory loader: parent theories can now also be referred to via
wenzelm@16234
    25
relative and absolute paths.
wenzelm@16234
    26
wenzelm@17408
    27
* Command 'find_theorems' searches for a list of criteria instead of a
wenzelm@17408
    28
list of constants. Known criteria are: intro, elim, dest, name:string,
wenzelm@17408
    29
simp:term, and any term. Criteria can be preceded by '-' to select
wenzelm@17408
    30
theorems that do not match. Intro, elim, dest select theorems that
wenzelm@17408
    31
match the current goal, name:s selects theorems whose fully qualified
wenzelm@17408
    32
name contain s, and simp:term selects all simplification rules whose
wenzelm@17408
    33
lhs match term.  Any other term is interpreted as pattern and selects
wenzelm@17408
    34
all theorems matching the pattern. Available in ProofGeneral under
wenzelm@17408
    35
'ProofGeneral -> Find Theorems' or C-c C-f.  Example:
wenzelm@16234
    36
wenzelm@17275
    37
  C-c C-f (100) "(_::nat) + _ + _" intro -name: "HOL."
wenzelm@16234
    38
wenzelm@16234
    39
prints the last 100 theorems matching the pattern "(_::nat) + _ + _",
wenzelm@16234
    40
matching the current goal as introduction rule and not having "HOL."
wenzelm@16234
    41
in their name (i.e. not being defined in theory HOL).
wenzelm@16013
    42
wenzelm@17408
    43
* Command 'thms_containing' has been discontinued in favour of
wenzelm@17408
    44
'find_theorems'; INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17408
    45
wenzelm@17385
    46
* Communication with Proof General is now 8bit clean, which means that
wenzelm@17385
    47
Unicode text in UTF-8 encoding may be used within theory texts (both
wenzelm@17408
    48
formal and informal parts).  Cf. option -U of the Isabelle Proof
wenzelm@17538
    49
General interface.  Here are some simple examples (cf. src/HOL/ex):
wenzelm@17538
    50
wenzelm@17538
    51
  http://isabelle.in.tum.de/library/HOL/ex/Hebrew.html
wenzelm@17538
    52
  http://isabelle.in.tum.de/library/HOL/ex/Chinese.html
wenzelm@17385
    53
wenzelm@17425
    54
* Improved efficiency of the Simplifier and, to a lesser degree, the
wenzelm@17425
    55
Classical Reasoner.  Typical big applications run around 2 times
wenzelm@17425
    56
faster.
wenzelm@17425
    57
wenzelm@17519
    58
* ProofGeneral interface: the default settings no longer prefer xemacs
wenzelm@17519
    59
over GNU emacs.  Users typically need to experiment with various
wenzelm@17519
    60
variations on PROOFGENERAL_OPTIONS="... -p emacs" to find the most
wenzelm@17519
    61
stable Emacs version on their platform.
wenzelm@17519

wenzelm@15703
    64
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@15703
    65
wenzelm@16234
    66
* Commands 'display_drafts' and 'print_drafts' perform simple output
wenzelm@16234
    67
of raw sources.  Only those symbols that do not require additional
wenzelm@16234
    68
LaTeX packages (depending on comments in isabellesym.sty) are
wenzelm@16234
    69
displayed properly, everything else is left verbatim.  isatool display
wenzelm@16234
    70
and isatool print are used as front ends (these are subject to the
wenzelm@16234
    71
DVI/PDF_VIEWER and PRINT_COMMAND settings, respectively).
wenzelm@16234
    72
wenzelm@17047
    73
* Command tags control specific markup of certain regions of text,
wenzelm@17047
    74
notably folding and hiding.  Predefined tags include "theory" (for
wenzelm@17047
    75
theory begin and end), "proof" for proof commands, and "ML" for
wenzelm@17047
    76
commands involving ML code; the additional tags "visible" and
wenzelm@17047
    77
"invisible" are unused by default.  Users may give explicit tag
wenzelm@17047
    78
specifications in the text, e.g. ''by %invisible (auto)''.  The
wenzelm@17047
    79
interpretation of tags is determined by the LaTeX job during document
wenzelm@17047
    80
preparation: see option -V of isatool usedir, or options -n and -t of
wenzelm@17047
    81
isatool document, or even the LaTeX macros \isakeeptag, \isafoldtag,
wenzelm@17047
    82
\isadroptag.
wenzelm@17047
    83
wenzelm@17047
    84
Several document versions may be produced at the same time via isatool
wenzelm@17047
    85
usedir (the generated index.html will link all of them).  Typical
wenzelm@17047
    86
specifications include ''-V document=theory,proof,ML'' to present
wenzelm@17047
    87
theory/proof/ML parts faithfully, ''-V outline=/proof,/ML'' to fold
wenzelm@17047
    88
proof and ML commands, and ''-V mutilated=-theory,-proof,-ML'' to omit
wenzelm@17047
    89
these parts without any formal replacement text.  The Isabelle site
wenzelm@17047
    90
default settings produce ''document'' and ''outline'' versions as
wenzelm@17047
    91
specified above.
wenzelm@16234
    92
haftmann@17402
    93
* Several new antiquotations:
wenzelm@15979
    94
wenzelm@15979
    95
  @{term_type term} prints a term with its type annotated;
wenzelm@15979
    96
wenzelm@15979
    97
  @{typeof term} prints the type of a term;
wenzelm@15979
    98
wenzelm@16234
    99
  @{const const} is the same as @{term const}, but checks that the
wenzelm@16234
   100
  argument is a known logical constant;
wenzelm@15979
   101
wenzelm@15979
   102
  @{term_style style term} and @{thm_style style thm} print a term or
wenzelm@16234
   103
  theorem applying a "style" to it
wenzelm@16234
   104
wenzelm@17117
   105
  @{ML text}
wenzelm@17117
   106
wenzelm@16234
   107
Predefined styles are 'lhs' and 'rhs' printing the lhs/rhs of
wenzelm@16234
   108
definitions, equations, inequations etc., 'concl' printing only the
schirmer@17393
   109
conclusion of a meta-logical statement theorem, and 'prem1' .. 'prem19'
wenzelm@16234
   110
to print the specified premise.  TermStyle.add_style provides an ML
wenzelm@16234
   111
interface for introducing further styles.  See also the "LaTeX Sugar"
wenzelm@17117
   112
document practical applications.  The ML antiquotation prints
wenzelm@17117
   113
type-checked ML expressions verbatim.
wenzelm@16234
   114
wenzelm@17259
   115
* Markup commands 'chapter', 'section', 'subsection', 'subsubsection',
wenzelm@17259
   116
and 'text' support optional locale specification '(in loc)', which
wenzelm@17269
   117
specifies the default context for interpreting antiquotations.  For
wenzelm@17269
   118
example: 'text (in lattice) {* @{thm inf_assoc}*}'.
wenzelm@17259
   119
wenzelm@17259
   120
* Option 'locale=NAME' of antiquotations specifies an alternative
wenzelm@17259
   121
context interpreting the subsequent argument.  For example: @{thm
wenzelm@17269
   122
[locale=lattice] inf_assoc}.
wenzelm@17259
   123
wenzelm@17097
   124
* Proper output of proof terms (@{prf ...} and @{full_prf ...}) within
wenzelm@17097
   125
a proof context.
wenzelm@17097
   126
wenzelm@17097
   127
* Proper output of antiquotations for theory commands involving a
wenzelm@17097
   128
proof context (such as 'locale' or 'theorem (in loc) ...').
wenzelm@17097
   129
wenzelm@17193
   130
* Delimiters of outer tokens (string etc.) now produce separate LaTeX
wenzelm@17193
   131
macros (\isachardoublequoteopen, isachardoublequoteclose etc.).
wenzelm@17193
   132
wenzelm@17193
   133
* isatool usedir: new option -C (default true) controls whether option
wenzelm@17193
   134
-D should include a copy of the original document directory; -C false
wenzelm@17193
   135
prevents unwanted effects such as copying of administrative CVS data.
wenzelm@17193
   136
wenzelm@16234
   137
wenzelm@16234
   138
*** Pure ***
wenzelm@16234
   139
wenzelm@16234
   140
* Considerably improved version of 'constdefs' command.  Now performs
wenzelm@16234
   141
automatic type-inference of declared constants; additional support for
wenzelm@16234
   142
local structure declarations (cf. locales and HOL records), see also
wenzelm@16234
   143
isar-ref manual.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY: need to observe strictly
wenzelm@16234
   144
sequential dependencies of definitions within a single 'constdefs'
wenzelm@16234
   145
section; moreover, the declared name needs to be an identifier.  If
wenzelm@16234
   146
all fails, consider to fall back on 'consts' and 'defs' separately.
wenzelm@16234
   147
wenzelm@16234
   148
* Improved indexed syntax and implicit structures.  First of all,
wenzelm@16234
   149
indexed syntax provides a notational device for subscripted
wenzelm@16234
   150
application, using the new syntax \<^bsub>term\<^esub> for arbitrary
wenzelm@16234
   151
expressions.  Secondly, in a local context with structure
wenzelm@16234
   152
declarations, number indexes \<^sub>n or the empty index (default
wenzelm@16234
   153
number 1) refer to a certain fixed variable implicitly; option
wenzelm@16234
   154
show_structs controls printing of implicit structures.  Typical
wenzelm@16234
   155
applications of these concepts involve record types and locales.
wenzelm@16234
   156
wenzelm@16234
   157
* New command 'no_syntax' removes grammar declarations (and
wenzelm@16234
   158
translations) resulting from the given syntax specification, which is
wenzelm@16234
   159
interpreted in the same manner as for the 'syntax' command.
wenzelm@16234
   160
wenzelm@16234
   161
* 'Advanced' translation functions (parse_translation etc.) may depend
wenzelm@16234
   162
on the signature of the theory context being presently used for
wenzelm@16234
   163
parsing/printing, see also isar-ref manual.
wenzelm@16234
   164
wenzelm@16856
   165
* Improved 'oracle' command provides a type-safe interface to turn an
wenzelm@16856
   166
ML expression of type theory -> T -> term into a primitive rule of
wenzelm@16856
   167
type theory -> T -> thm (i.e. the functionality of Thm.invoke_oracle
wenzelm@16856
   168
is already included here); see also FOL/ex/IffExample.thy;
wenzelm@16856
   169
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@16856
   170
wenzelm@17275
   171
* axclass: name space prefix for class "c" is now "c_class" (was "c"
wenzelm@17275
   172
before); "cI" is no longer bound, use "c.intro" instead.
wenzelm@17275
   173
INCOMPATIBILITY.  This change avoids clashes of fact bindings for
wenzelm@17275
   174
axclasses vs. locales.
wenzelm@17275
   175
wenzelm@16234
   176
* Improved internal renaming of symbolic identifiers -- attach primes
wenzelm@16234
   177
instead of base 26 numbers.
wenzelm@16234
   178
wenzelm@16234
   179
* New flag show_question_marks controls printing of leading question
wenzelm@16234
   180
marks in schematic variable names.
wenzelm@16234
   181
wenzelm@16234
   182
* In schematic variable names, *any* symbol following \<^isub> or
wenzelm@16234
   183
\<^isup> is now treated as part of the base name.  For example, the
wenzelm@16234
   184
following works without printing of awkward ".0" indexes:
wenzelm@16234
   185
wenzelm@16234
   186
  lemma "x\<^isub>1 = x\<^isub>2 ==> x\<^isub>2 = x\<^isub>1"
wenzelm@16234
   187
    by simp
wenzelm@16234
   188
wenzelm@16234
   189
* Inner syntax includes (*(*nested*) comments*).
wenzelm@16234
   190
wenzelm@17548
   191
* Pretty printer now supports unbreakable blocks, specified in mixfix
wenzelm@16234
   192
annotations as "(00...)".
wenzelm@16234
   193
wenzelm@16234
   194
* Clear separation of logical types and nonterminals, where the latter
wenzelm@16234
   195
may only occur in 'syntax' specifications or type abbreviations.
wenzelm@16234
   196
Before that distinction was only partially implemented via type class
wenzelm@16234
   197
"logic" vs. "{}".  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY in rare cases of improper
wenzelm@16234
   198
use of 'types'/'consts' instead of 'nonterminals'/'syntax'.  Some very
wenzelm@16234
   199
exotic syntax specifications may require further adaption
wenzelm@16234
   200
(e.g. Cube/Base.thy).
wenzelm@16234
   201
wenzelm@16234
   202
* Removed obsolete type class "logic", use the top sort {} instead.
wenzelm@16234
   203
Note that non-logical types should be declared as 'nonterminals'
wenzelm@16234
   204
rather than 'types'.  INCOMPATIBILITY for new object-logic
wenzelm@16234
   205
specifications.
wenzelm@16234
   206
wenzelm@17535
   207
* 'defs': more well-formedness checks of overloaded definitions.
wenzelm@17535
   208
ballarin@17095
   209
* Attributes 'induct' and 'cases': type or set names may now be
ballarin@17095
   210
locally fixed variables as well.
ballarin@17095
   211
wenzelm@16234
   212
* Simplifier: can now control the depth to which conditional rewriting
wenzelm@16234
   213
is traced via the PG menu Isabelle -> Settings -> Trace Simp Depth
wenzelm@16234
   214
Limit.
wenzelm@16234
   215
wenzelm@16234
   216
* Simplifier: simplification procedures may now take the current
wenzelm@16234
   217
simpset into account (cf. Simplifier.simproc(_i) / mk_simproc
wenzelm@16234
   218
interface), which is very useful for calling the Simplifier
wenzelm@16234
   219
recursively.  Minor INCOMPATIBILITY: the 'prems' argument of simprocs
wenzelm@16234
   220
is gone -- use prems_of_ss on the simpset instead.  Moreover, the
wenzelm@16234
   221
low-level mk_simproc no longer applies Logic.varify internally, to
wenzelm@16234
   222
allow for use in a context of fixed variables.
wenzelm@16234
   223
wenzelm@16234
   224
* thin_tac now works even if the assumption being deleted contains !!
wenzelm@16234
   225
or ==>.  More generally, erule now works even if the major premise of
wenzelm@16234
   226
the elimination rule contains !! or ==>.
wenzelm@16234
   227
wenzelm@17597
   228
* Method 'rules' has been renamed to 'iprover'. INCOMPATIBILITY.
nipkow@17590
   229
wenzelm@16234
   230
* Reorganized bootstrapping of the Pure theories; CPure is now derived
wenzelm@16234
   231
from Pure, which contains all common declarations already.  Both
wenzelm@16234
   232
theories are defined via plain Isabelle/Isar .thy files.
wenzelm@16234
   233
INCOMPATIBILITY: elements of CPure (such as the CPure.intro /
wenzelm@16234
   234
CPure.elim / CPure.dest attributes) now appear in the Pure name space;
wenzelm@16234
   235
use isatool fixcpure to adapt your theory and ML sources.
wenzelm@16234
   236
wenzelm@16234
   237
* New syntax 'name(i-j, i-, i, ...)' for referring to specific
wenzelm@16234
   238
selections of theorems in named facts via index ranges.
wenzelm@16234
   239
wenzelm@17097
   240
* 'print_theorems': in theory mode, really print the difference
wenzelm@17097
   241
wrt. the last state (works for interactive theory development only),
wenzelm@17097
   242
in proof mode print all local facts (cf. 'print_facts');
wenzelm@17097
   243
wenzelm@17397
   244
* 'hide': option '(open)' hides only base names.
wenzelm@17397
   245
wenzelm@17275
   246
* More efficient treatment of intermediate checkpoints in interactive
wenzelm@17275
   247
theory development.
wenzelm@17275
   248
berghofe@17663
   249
* Code generator is now invoked via code_module (incremental code
wenzelm@17664
   250
generation) and code_library (modular code generation, ML structures
wenzelm@17664
   251
for each theory).  INCOMPATIBILITY: new keywords 'file' and 'contains'
wenzelm@17664
   252
must be quoted when used as identifiers.
wenzelm@17664
   253
wenzelm@17664
   254
* New 'value' command for reading, evaluating and printing terms using
wenzelm@17664
   255
the code generator.  INCOMPATIBILITY: command keyword 'value' must be
wenzelm@17664
   256
quoted when used as identifier.
berghofe@17663
   257
wenzelm@16234
   258
wenzelm@16234
   259
*** Locales ***
ballarin@17095
   260
wenzelm@17385
   261
* New commands for the interpretation of locale expressions in
wenzelm@17385
   262
theories (1), locales (2) and proof contexts (3).  These generate
wenzelm@17385
   263
proof obligations from the expression specification.  After the
wenzelm@17385
   264
obligations have been discharged, theorems of the expression are added
wenzelm@17385
   265
to the theory, target locale or proof context.  The synopsis of the

  (3) interpret expr inst
wenzelm@17385
   271
ballarin@17095
   272
Interpretation in theories and proof contexts require a parameter
ballarin@17095
   273
instantiation of terms from the current context.  This is applied to
wenzelm@17385
   274
specifications and theorems of the interpreted expression.
wenzelm@17385
   275
Interpretation in locales only permits parameter renaming through the
wenzelm@17385
   276
locale expression.  Interpretation is smart in that interpretations
wenzelm@17385
   277
that are active already do not occur in proof obligations, neither are
wenzelm@17385
   278
instantiated theorems stored in duplicate.  Use 'print_interps' to
wenzelm@17385
   279
inspect active interpretations of a particular locale.  For details,
ballarin@17436
   280
see the Isar Reference manual.  Examples can be found in
ballarin@17436
   281
HOL/Finite_Set.thy and HOL/Algebra/UnivPoly.thy.
wenzelm@16234
   282
wenzelm@16234
   283
INCOMPATIBILITY: former 'instantiate' has been withdrawn, use
wenzelm@16234
   284
'interpret' instead.
wenzelm@16234
   285
wenzelm@17385
   286
* New context element 'constrains' for adding type constraints to
wenzelm@17385
   287
parameters.
wenzelm@17385
   288
wenzelm@17385
   289
* Context expressions: renaming of parameters with syntax
wenzelm@17385
   290
redeclaration.
ballarin@17095
   291
ballarin@17095
   292
* Locale declaration: 'includes' disallowed.
ballarin@17095
   293
wenzelm@16234
   294
* Proper static binding of attribute syntax -- i.e. types / terms /
wenzelm@16234
   295
facts mentioned as arguments are always those of the locale definition
wenzelm@16234
   296
context, independently of the context of later invocations.  Moreover,
wenzelm@16234
   297
locale operations (renaming and type / term instantiation) are applied
wenzelm@16234
   298
to attribute arguments as expected.
wenzelm@16234
   299
wenzelm@16234
   300
INCOMPATIBILITY of the ML interface: always pass Attrib.src instead of
wenzelm@16234
   301
actual attributes; rare situations may require Attrib.attribute to
wenzelm@16234
   302
embed those attributes into Attrib.src that lack concrete syntax.
wenzelm@16234
   303
Attribute implementations need to cooperate properly with the static
wenzelm@16234
   304
binding mechanism.  Basic parsers Args.XXX_typ/term/prop and
wenzelm@16234
   305
Attrib.XXX_thm etc. already do the right thing without further
wenzelm@16234
   306
intervention.  Only unusual applications -- such as "where" or "of"
wenzelm@16234
   307
(cf. src/Pure/Isar/attrib.ML), which process arguments depending both
wenzelm@16234
   308
on the context and the facts involved -- may have to assign parsed
wenzelm@16234
   309
values to argument tokens explicitly.
wenzelm@16234
   310
wenzelm@16234
   311
* Changed parameter management in theorem generation for long goal
wenzelm@16234
   312
statements with 'includes'.  INCOMPATIBILITY: produces a different
wenzelm@16234
   313
theorem statement in rare situations.
wenzelm@16234
   314
ballarin@17228
   315
* Locale inspection command 'print_locale' omits notes elements.  Use
ballarin@17228
   316
'print_locale!' to have them included in the output.

wenzelm@16234
   321
* Provers/hypsubst.ML: improved version of the subst method, for
wenzelm@16234
   322
single-step rewriting: it now works in bound variable contexts. New is
wenzelm@16234
   323
'subst (asm)', for rewriting an assumption.  INCOMPATIBILITY: may
wenzelm@16234
   324
rewrite a different subterm than the original subst method, which is
wenzelm@16234
   325
still available as 'simplesubst'.
wenzelm@16234
   326
wenzelm@16234
   327
* Provers/quasi.ML: new transitivity reasoners for transitivity only
wenzelm@16234
   328
and quasi orders.
wenzelm@16234
   329
wenzelm@16234
   330
* Provers/trancl.ML: new transitivity reasoner for transitive and
wenzelm@16234
   331
reflexive-transitive closure of relations.
wenzelm@16234
   332
wenzelm@16234
   333
* Provers/blast.ML: new reference depth_limit to make blast's depth
wenzelm@16234
   334
limit (previously hard-coded with a value of 20) user-definable.
wenzelm@16234
   335
wenzelm@16234
   336
* Provers/simplifier.ML has been moved to Pure, where Simplifier.setup
wenzelm@16234
   337
is peformed already.  Object-logics merely need to finish their
wenzelm@16234
   338
initial simpset configuration as before.  INCOMPATIBILITY.

schirmer@14700

wenzelm@16234
   343
* Symbolic syntax of Hilbert Choice Operator is now as follows:
wenzelm@14878
   344
wenzelm@14878
   345
  syntax (epsilon)
wenzelm@14878
   346
    "_Eps" :: "[pttrn, bool] => 'a"    ("(3\<some>_./ _)" [0, 10] 10)
wenzelm@14878
   347
wenzelm@16234
   348
The symbol \<some> is displayed as the alternative epsilon of LaTeX
wenzelm@16234
   349
and x-symbol; use option '-m epsilon' to get it actually printed.
wenzelm@16234
   350
Moreover, the mathematically important symbolic identifier \<epsilon>
wenzelm@16234
   351
becomes available as variable, constant etc.  INCOMPATIBILITY,
wenzelm@16234
   352
wenzelm@16234
   353
* "x > y" abbreviates "y < x" and "x >= y" abbreviates "y <= x".
wenzelm@16234
   354
Similarly for all quantifiers: "ALL x > y" etc.  The x-symbol for >=
wenzelm@17371
   355
is \<ge>. New transitivity rules have been added to HOL/Orderings.thy to
avigad@17016
   356
support corresponding Isar calculations.
wenzelm@16234
   357
wenzelm@16234
   358
* "{x:A. P}" abbreviates "{x. x:A & P}", and similarly for "\<in>"
wenzelm@16234
   359
instead of ":".
wenzelm@16234
   360
wenzelm@16234
   361
* theory SetInterval: changed the syntax for open intervals:
wenzelm@16234
   362
wenzelm@16234
   363
  Old       New
wenzelm@16234
   364
  {..n(}    {..<n}
wenzelm@16234
   365
  {)n..}    {n<..}
wenzelm@16234
   366
  {m..n(}   {m..<n}
wenzelm@16234
   367
  {)m..n}   {m<..n}
wenzelm@16234
   368
  {)m..n(}  {m<..<n}
wenzelm@16234
   369
wenzelm@16234
   370
The old syntax is still supported but will disappear in the next
wenzelm@16234
   371
release.  For conversion use the following Emacs search and replace
wenzelm@16234
   372
patterns (these are not perfect but work quite well):
nipkow@15046
   373
nipkow@15046
   374
  {)\([^\.]*\)\.\.  ->  {\1<\.\.}
nipkow@15046
   375
  \.\.\([^(}]*\)(}  ->  \.\.<\1}
nipkow@15046
   376
wenzelm@17533
   377
* Theory Commutative_Ring (in Library): method comm_ring for proving
wenzelm@17533
   378
equalities in commutative rings; method 'algebra' provides a generic
wenzelm@17533
   379
interface.
wenzelm@17389
   380
wenzelm@17389
   381
* Theory Finite_Set: changed the syntax for 'setsum', summation over
wenzelm@16234
   382
finite sets: "setsum (%x. e) A", which used to be "\<Sum>x:A. e", is
wenzelm@17371
   383
now either "SUM x:A. e" or "\<Sum>x \<in> A. e". The bound variable can
paulson@17189
   384
be a tuple pattern.
wenzelm@16234
   385
wenzelm@16234
   386
Some new syntax forms are available:
wenzelm@16234
   387
wenzelm@16234
   388
  "\<Sum>x | P. e"      for     "setsum (%x. e) {x. P}"
wenzelm@16234
   389
  "\<Sum>x = a..b. e"   for     "setsum (%x. e) {a..b}"
wenzelm@16234
   390
  "\<Sum>x = a..<b. e"  for     "setsum (%x. e) {a..<b}"
wenzelm@16234
   391
  "\<Sum>x < k. e"      for     "setsum (%x. e) {..<k}"
wenzelm@16234
   392
wenzelm@16234
   393
The latter form "\<Sum>x < k. e" used to be based on a separate
wenzelm@16234
   394
function "Summation", which has been discontinued.
wenzelm@16234
   395
wenzelm@16234
   396
* theory Finite_Set: in structured induction proofs, the insert case
wenzelm@16234
   397
is now 'case (insert x F)' instead of the old counterintuitive 'case
wenzelm@16234
   398
(insert F x)'.
wenzelm@16234
   399
wenzelm@16234
   400
* The 'refute' command has been extended to support a much larger
wenzelm@16234
   401
fragment of HOL, including axiomatic type classes, constdefs and
wenzelm@16234
   402
typedefs, inductive datatypes and recursion.
wenzelm@16234
   403
webertj@17619
   404
* New tactic 'sat' to prove propositional tautologies.  Requires
webertj@17619
   405
zChaff with proof generation to be installed.
webertj@17619
   406
wenzelm@16234
   407
* Datatype induction via method 'induct' now preserves the name of the
wenzelm@16234
   408
induction variable. For example, when proving P(xs::'a list) by
wenzelm@16234
   409
induction on xs, the induction step is now P(xs) ==> P(a#xs) rather
wenzelm@16234
   410
than P(list) ==> P(a#list) as previously.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY
wenzelm@16234
   411
in unstructured proof scripts.
wenzelm@16234
   412
wenzelm@16234
   413
* Reworked implementation of records.  Improved scalability for
wenzelm@16234
   414
records with many fields, avoiding performance problems for type
wenzelm@16234
   415
inference. Records are no longer composed of nested field types, but
wenzelm@16234
   416
of nested extension types. Therefore the record type only grows linear
wenzelm@16234
   417
in the number of extensions and not in the number of fields.  The
wenzelm@16234
   418
top-level (users) view on records is preserved.  Potential
wenzelm@16234
   419
INCOMPATIBILITY only in strange cases, where the theory depends on the
wenzelm@16234
   420
old record representation. The type generated for a record is called
wenzelm@16234
   421
<record_name>_ext_type.
wenzelm@16234
   422
wenzelm@16234
   423
Flag record_quick_and_dirty_sensitive can be enabled to skip the
wenzelm@16234
   424
proofs triggered by a record definition or a simproc (if
wenzelm@16234
   425
quick_and_dirty is enabled).  Definitions of large records can take
wenzelm@16234
   426
quite long.
wenzelm@16234
   427
wenzelm@16234
   428
New simproc record_upd_simproc for simplification of multiple record
wenzelm@16234
   429
updates enabled by default.  Moreover, trivial updates are also
wenzelm@16234
   430
removed: r(|x := x r|) = r.  INCOMPATIBILITY: old proofs break
wenzelm@16234
   431
occasionally, since simplification is more powerful by default.
wenzelm@16234
   432
wenzelm@17275
   433
* typedef: proper support for polymorphic sets, which contain extra
wenzelm@17275
   434
type-variables in the term.
wenzelm@17275
   435
wenzelm@16234
   436
* Simplifier: automatically reasons about transitivity chains
wenzelm@16234
   437
involving "trancl" (r^+) and "rtrancl" (r^*) by setting up tactics
wenzelm@16234
   438
provided by Provers/trancl.ML as additional solvers.  INCOMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@16234
   439
old proofs break occasionally as simplification may now solve more
wenzelm@16234
   440
goals than previously.
wenzelm@16234
   441
wenzelm@16234
   442
* Simplifier: converts x <= y into x = y if assumption y <= x is
wenzelm@16234
   443
present.  Works for all partial orders (class "order"), in particular
wenzelm@16234
   444
numbers and sets.  For linear orders (e.g. numbers) it treats ~ x < y
wenzelm@16234
   445
just like y <= x.
wenzelm@16234
   446
wenzelm@16234
   447
* Simplifier: new simproc for "let x = a in f x".  If a is a free or
wenzelm@16234
   448
bound variable or a constant then the let is unfolded.  Otherwise
wenzelm@16234
   449
first a is simplified to b, and then f b is simplified to g. If
wenzelm@16234
   450
possible we abstract b from g arriving at "let x = b in h x",
wenzelm@16234
   451
otherwise we unfold the let and arrive at g.  The simproc can be
wenzelm@16234
   452
enabled/disabled by the reference use_let_simproc.  Potential
wenzelm@16234
   453
INCOMPATIBILITY since simplification is more powerful by default.
webertj@15776

wenzelm@16860
   767
example:
wenzelm@16860
   768
wenzelm@16860
   769
  fold f [x1, ..., xN] y =
wenzelm@16860
   770
    y |> f x1 |> ... |> f xN
wenzelm@16860
   771
wenzelm@16860
   772
  (fold o fold) f [xs1, ..., xsN] y =
wenzelm@16860
   773
    y |> fold f xs1 |> ... |> fold f xsN
wenzelm@16860
   774
wenzelm@16860
   775
  fold f [x1, ..., xN] =
wenzelm@16860
   776
    f x1 #> ... #> f xN
wenzelm@16860
   777
wenzelm@16860
   778
  (fold o fold) f [xs1, ..., xsN] =
wenzelm@16860
   779
    fold f xs1 #> ... #> fold f xsN
wenzelm@16860
   780
wenzelm@17408
   781
* Pure/library.ML: the following selectors on type 'a option are
wenzelm@17408
   782
available:
wenzelm@17408
   783
wenzelm@17408
   784
  the:               'a option -> 'a  (*partial*)
wenzelm@17408
   785
  these:             'a option -> 'a  where 'a = 'b list
haftmann@17402
   786
  the_default: 'a -> 'a option -> 'a
haftmann@17402
   787
  the_list:          'a option -> 'a list
haftmann@17402
   788
wenzelm@17408
   789
* Pure/General: structure AList (cf. Pure/General/alist.ML) provides
wenzelm@17408
   790
basic operations for association lists, following natural argument
haftmann@17564
   791
order; moreover the explicit equality predicate passed here avoids
haftmann@17495
   792
potentially expensive polymorphic runtime equality checks.
haftmann@17495
   793
The old functions may be expressed as follows:
wenzelm@17408
   794
wenzelm@17408
   795
  assoc = uncurry (AList.lookup (op =))
wenzelm@17408
   796
  assocs = these oo AList.lookup (op =)
wenzelm@17408
   797
  overwrite = uncurry (AList.update (op =)) o swap
wenzelm@17408
   798
haftmann@17564
   799
* Pure/General: structure AList (cf. Pure/General/alist.ML) provides
haftmann@17564
   800
haftmann@17564
   801
  val make: ('a -> 'b) -> 'a list -> ('a * 'b) list
haftmann@17564
   802
  val find: ('a * 'b -> bool) -> ('c * 'b) list -> 'a -> 'c list
haftmann@17564
   803
haftmann@17564
   804
replacing make_keylist and keyfilter (occassionally used)
haftmann@17564
   805
Naive rewrites:
haftmann@17564
   806
haftmann@17564
   807
  make_keylist = AList.make
haftmann@17564
   808
  keyfilter = AList.find (op =)
haftmann@17564
   809
haftmann@17564
   810
* eq_fst and eq_snd now take explicit equality parameter, thus
haftmann@17564
   811
  avoiding eqtypes. Naive rewrites:
haftmann@17564
   812
haftmann@17564
   813
    eq_fst = eq_fst (op =)
haftmann@17564
   814
    eq_snd = eq_snd (op =)
haftmann@17564
   815
haftmann@17564
   816
* Removed deprecated apl and apr (rarely used).
haftmann@17564
   817
  Naive rewrites:
haftmann@17564
   818
haftmann@17564
   819
    apl (n, op) =>>= curry op n
haftmann@17564
   820
    apr (op, m) =>>= fn n => op (n, m)
haftmann@17564
   821
wenzelm@17408
   822
* Pure/General: structure OrdList (cf. Pure/General/ord_list.ML)
wenzelm@17408
   823
provides a reasonably efficient light-weight implementation of sets as
wenzelm@17408
   824
lists.
wenzelm@17408
   825
wenzelm@17408
   826
* Pure/General: generic tables (cf. Pure/General/table.ML) provide a
wenzelm@17408
   827
few new operations; existing lookup and update are now curried to
wenzelm@17408
   828
follow natural argument order (for use with fold etc.);
wenzelm@17408
   829
INCOMPATIBILITY, use (uncurry Symtab.lookup) etc. as last resort.
wenzelm@17408
   830
wenzelm@17408
   831
* Pure/General: output via the Isabelle channels of
wenzelm@17408
   832
writeln/warning/error etc. is now passed through Output.output, with a
wenzelm@17408
   833
hook for arbitrary transformations depending on the print_mode
wenzelm@17408
   834
(cf. Output.add_mode -- the first active mode that provides a output
wenzelm@17408
   835
function wins).  Already formatted output may be embedded into further
wenzelm@17408
   836
text via Output.raw; the result of Pretty.string_of/str_of and derived
wenzelm@17408
   837
functions (string_of_term/cterm/thm etc.) is already marked raw to
wenzelm@17408
   838
accommodate easy composition of diagnostic messages etc.  Programmers
wenzelm@17408
   839
rarely need to care about Output.output or Output.raw at all, with
wenzelm@17408
   840
some notable exceptions: Output.output is required when bypassing the
wenzelm@17408
   841
standard channels (writeln etc.), or in token translations to produce
wenzelm@17408
   842
properly formatted results; Output.raw is required when capturing
wenzelm@17408
   843
already output material that will eventually be presented to the user
wenzelm@17408
   844
a second time.  For the default print mode, both Output.output and
wenzelm@17408
   845
Output.raw have no effect.
wenzelm@17408
   846
wenzelm@17408
   847
* Pure/General: Output.time_accumulator NAME creates an operator ('a
wenzelm@17408
   848
-> 'b) -> 'a -> 'b to measure runtime and count invocations; the
wenzelm@17408
   849
cumulative results are displayed at the end of a batch session.
wenzelm@17408
   850
wenzelm@17408
   851
* Pure/General: File.sysify_path and File.quote_sysify path have been
wenzelm@17408
   852
replaced by File.platform_path and File.shell_path (with appropriate
wenzelm@17408
   853
hooks).  This provides a clean interface for unusual systems where the
wenzelm@17408
   854
internal and external process view of file names are different.
wenzelm@17408
   855
wenzelm@16689
   856
* Pure: more efficient orders for basic syntactic entities: added
wenzelm@16689
   857
fast_string_ord, fast_indexname_ord, fast_term_ord; changed sort_ord
wenzelm@16689
   858
and typ_ord to use fast_string_ord and fast_indexname_ord (term_ord is
wenzelm@16689
   859
NOT affected); structures Symtab, Vartab, Typtab, Termtab use the fast
wenzelm@16689
   860
orders now -- potential INCOMPATIBILITY for code that depends on a
wenzelm@16689
   861
particular order for Symtab.keys, Symtab.dest, etc. (consider using
wenzelm@16689
   862
Library.sort_strings on result).
wenzelm@16689
   863
wenzelm@17408
   864
* Pure/term.ML: combinators fold_atyps, fold_aterms, fold_term_types,
wenzelm@17408
   865
fold_types traverse types/terms from left to right, observing natural
wenzelm@17408
   866
argument order.  Supercedes previous foldl_XXX versions, add_frees,
wenzelm@17408
   867
add_vars etc. have been adapted as well: INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17408
   868
wenzelm@16151
   869
* Pure: name spaces have been refined, with significant changes of the
wenzelm@16234
   870
internal interfaces -- INCOMPATIBILITY.  Renamed cond_extern(_table)
wenzelm@16234
   871
to extern(_table).  The plain name entry path is superceded by a
wenzelm@16234
   872
general 'naming' context, which also includes the 'policy' to produce
wenzelm@16234
   873
a fully qualified name and external accesses of a fully qualified
wenzelm@16234
   874
name; NameSpace.extend is superceded by context dependent
wenzelm@16234
   875
Sign.declare_name.  Several theory and proof context operations modify
wenzelm@16234
   876
the naming context.  Especially note Theory.restore_naming and
wenzelm@16234
   877
ProofContext.restore_naming to get back to a sane state; note that
wenzelm@16234
   878
Theory.add_path is no longer sufficient to recover from
wenzelm@16234
   879
Theory.absolute_path in particular.
wenzelm@16234
   880
wenzelm@16234
   881
* Pure: new flags short_names (default false) and unique_names
wenzelm@16234
   882
(default true) for controlling output of qualified names.  If
wenzelm@16234
   883
short_names is set, names are printed unqualified.  If unique_names is
wenzelm@16234
   884
reset, the name prefix is reduced to the minimum required to achieve
wenzelm@16234
   885
the original result when interning again, even if there is an overlap
wenzelm@16234
   886
with earlier declarations.
wenzelm@16151
   887
wenzelm@16456
   888
* Pure/TheoryDataFun: change of the argument structure; 'prep_ext' is
wenzelm@16456
   889
now 'extend', and 'merge' gets an additional Pretty.pp argument
wenzelm@16456
   890
(useful for printing error messages).  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@16456
   891
wenzelm@16456
   892
* Pure: major reorganization of the theory context.  Type Sign.sg and
wenzelm@16456
   893
Theory.theory are now identified, referring to the universal
wenzelm@16456
   894
Context.theory (see Pure/context.ML).  Actual signature and theory
wenzelm@16456
   895
content is managed as theory data.  The old code and interfaces were
wenzelm@16456
   896
spread over many files and structures; the new arrangement introduces
wenzelm@16456
   897
considerable INCOMPATIBILITY to gain more clarity:
wenzelm@16456
   898
wenzelm@16456
   899
  Context -- theory management operations (name, identity, inclusion,
wenzelm@16456
   900
    parents, ancestors, merge, etc.), plus generic theory data;
wenzelm@16456
   901
wenzelm@16456
   902
  Sign -- logical signature and syntax operations (declaring consts,
wenzelm@16456
   903
    types, etc.), plus certify/read for common entities;
wenzelm@16456
   904
wenzelm@16456
   905
  Theory -- logical theory operations (stating axioms, definitions,
wenzelm@16456
   906
    oracles), plus a copy of logical signature operations (consts,
wenzelm@16456
   907
    types, etc.); also a few basic management operations (Theory.copy,
wenzelm@16456
   908
    Theory.merge, etc.)
wenzelm@16456
   909
wenzelm@16456
   910
The most basic sign_of operations (Theory.sign_of, Thm.sign_of_thm
wenzelm@16456
   911
etc.) as well as the sign field in Thm.rep_thm etc. have been retained
wenzelm@16456
   912
for convenience -- they merely return the theory.
wenzelm@16456
   913
wenzelm@17193
   914
* Pure: type Type.tsig is superceded by theory in most interfaces.
wenzelm@17193
   915
wenzelm@16547
   916
* Pure: the Isar proof context type is already defined early in Pure
wenzelm@16547
   917
as Context.proof (note that ProofContext.context and Proof.context are
wenzelm@16547
   918
aliases, where the latter is the preferred name).  This enables other
wenzelm@16547
   919
Isabelle components to refer to that type even before Isar is present.
wenzelm@16547
   920
wenzelm@16373
   921
* Pure/sign/theory: discontinued named name spaces (i.e. classK,
wenzelm@16373
   922
typeK, constK, axiomK, oracleK), but provide explicit operations for
wenzelm@16373
   923
any of these kinds.  For example, Sign.intern typeK is now
wenzelm@16373
   924
Sign.intern_type, Theory.hide_space Sign.typeK is now
wenzelm@16373
   925
Theory.hide_types.  Also note that former
wenzelm@16373
   926
Theory.hide_classes/types/consts are now
wenzelm@16373
   927
Theory.hide_classes_i/types_i/consts_i, while the non '_i' versions
wenzelm@16373
   928
internalize their arguments!  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@16373
   929
wenzelm@16506
   930
* Pure: get_thm interface (of PureThy and ProofContext) expects
wenzelm@16506
   931
datatype thmref (with constructors Name and NameSelection) instead of
wenzelm@16506
   932
plain string -- INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@16506
   933
wenzelm@16151
   934
* Pure: cases produced by proof methods specify options, where NONE
wenzelm@16234
   935
means to remove case bindings -- INCOMPATIBILITY in
wenzelm@16234
   936
(RAW_)METHOD_CASES.
wenzelm@16151
   937
wenzelm@16373
   938
* Pure: the following operations retrieve axioms or theorems from a
wenzelm@16373
   939
theory node or theory hierarchy, respectively:
wenzelm@16373
   940
wenzelm@16373
   941
  Theory.axioms_of: theory -> (string * term) list
wenzelm@16373
   942
  Theory.all_axioms_of: theory -> (string * term) list
wenzelm@16373
   943
  PureThy.thms_of: theory -> (string * thm) list
wenzelm@16373
   944
  PureThy.all_thms_of: theory -> (string * thm) list
wenzelm@16373
   945
wenzelm@16718
   946
* Pure: print_tac now outputs the goal through the trace channel.
wenzelm@16718
   947
wenzelm@17408
   948
* Isar toplevel: improved diagnostics, mostly for Poly/ML only.
wenzelm@17408
   949
Reference Toplevel.debug (default false) controls detailed printing
wenzelm@17408
   950
and tracing of low-level exceptions; Toplevel.profiling (default 0)
wenzelm@17408
   951
controls execution profiling -- set to 1 for time and 2 for space
wenzelm@17408
   952
(both increase the runtime).
wenzelm@17408
   953
wenzelm@17408
   954
* Isar session: The initial use of ROOT.ML is now always timed,
wenzelm@17408
   955
i.e. the log will show the actual process times, in contrast to the
wenzelm@17408
   956
elapsed wall-clock time that the outer shell wrapper produces.
wenzelm@17408
   957
wenzelm@17408
   958
* Simplifier: improved handling of bound variables (nameless
wenzelm@16997
   959
representation, avoid allocating new strings).  Simprocs that invoke
wenzelm@16997
   960
the Simplifier recursively should use Simplifier.inherit_bounds to
wenzelm@16997
   961
avoid local name clashes.
wenzelm@16997
   962
wenzelm@17408
   963
* Provers: Simplifier and Classical Reasoner now support proof context
wenzelm@17408
   964
dependent plug-ins (simprocs, solvers, wrappers etc.).  These extra
wenzelm@17408
   965
components are stored in the theory and patched into the
wenzelm@16234
   966
simpset/claset when used in an Isar proof context.  Context dependent
wenzelm@16234
   967
components are maintained by the following theory operations:
wenzelm@16234
   968
wenzelm@16234
   969
  Simplifier.add_context_simprocs
wenzelm@16234
   970
  Simplifier.del_context_simprocs
wenzelm@16234
   971
  Simplifier.set_context_subgoaler
wenzelm@16234
   972
  Simplifier.reset_context_subgoaler
wenzelm@16234
   973
  Simplifier.add_context_looper
wenzelm@16234
   974
  Simplifier.del_context_looper
wenzelm@16234
   975
  Simplifier.add_context_unsafe_solver
wenzelm@16234
   976
  Simplifier.add_context_safe_solver
wenzelm@16234
   977
wenzelm@16234
   978
  Classical.add_context_safe_wrapper
wenzelm@16234
   979
  Classical.del_context_safe_wrapper
wenzelm@16234
   980
  Classical.add_context_unsafe_wrapper
wenzelm@16234
   981
  Classical.del_context_unsafe_wrapper
wenzelm@16234
   982
wenzelm@16234
   983
IMPORTANT NOTE: proof tools (methods etc.) need to use
wenzelm@16234
   984
local_simpset_of and local_claset_of to instead of the primitive
wenzelm@16234
   985
Simplifier.get_local_simpset and Classical.get_local_claset,
wenzelm@16234
   986
respectively, in order to see the context dependent fields!
wenzelm@16234
   987
wenzelm@17166
   988
* ML functions legacy_bindings and use_legacy_bindings produce ML fact
wenzelm@17166
   989
bindings for all theorems stored within a given theory; this may help
wenzelm@17166
   990
in porting non-Isar theories to Isar ones, while keeping ML proof
wenzelm@17166
   991
scripts for the time being.
wenzelm@17166
   992
wenzelm@17457
   993
* ML operator HTML.with_charset specifies the charset begin used for
wenzelm@17457
   994
generated HTML files.  For example:
wenzelm@17457
   995
wenzelm@17457
   996
  HTML.with_charset "utf-8" use_thy "Hebrew";
wenzelm@17538
   997
  HTML.with_charset "utf-8" use_thy "Chinese";

ballarin@14398
  1025
* Provers/order.ML:  new efficient reasoner for partial and linear orders.

* Pure: Greek letters (except small lambda, \<lambda>), as well as Gothic
wenzelm@14606
  1029
  (\<aa>...\<zz>\<AA>...\<ZZ>), calligraphic (\<A>...\<Z>), and Euler
skalberg@14173

  (\<a>...\<z>), are now considered normal letters, and can therefore
skalberg@14173
  1031
  be used anywhere where an ASCII letter (a...zA...Z) has until
skalberg@14173
  1032
  now. COMPATIBILITY: This obviously changes the parsing of some
skalberg@14173
  1033
  terms, especially where a symbol has been used as a binder, say
skalberg@14173
  1034
  '\<Pi>x. ...', which is now a type error since \<Pi>x will be parsed
skalberg@14173
  1035
  as an identifier.  Fix it by inserting a space around former
skalberg@14173
  1036
  symbols.  Call 'isatool fixgreek' to try to fix parsing errors in
skalberg@14173
  1037
  existing theory and ML files.

  1041
* Pure: single letter sub/superscripts (\<^isub> and \<^isup>) are now
wenzelm@14731
  1042
  allowed in identifiers. Similar to Greek letters \<^isub> is now considered
wenzelm@14731
  1043
  a normal (but invisible) letter. For multiple letter subscripts repeat
wenzelm@14731
  1044
  \<^isub> like this: x\<^isub>1\<^isub>2.
kleing@14233
  1045
kleing@14333
  1046
* Pure: There are now sub-/superscripts that can span more than one
kleing@14333
  1047
  character. Text between \<^bsub> and \<^esub> is set in subscript in
wenzelm@14606
  1048
  ProofGeneral and LaTeX, text between \<^bsup> and \<^esup> in
wenzelm@14606
  1049
  superscript. The new control characters are not identifier parts.
kleing@14333
  1050
schirmer@14561
  1051
* Pure: Control-symbols of the form \<^raw:...> will literally print the
wenzelm@14606
  1052
  content of "..." to the latex file instead of \isacntrl... . The "..."
wenzelm@14606
  1053
  may consist of any printable characters excluding the end bracket >.
schirmer@14361
  1054
paulson@14237
  1055
* Pure: Using new Isar command "finalconsts" (or the ML functions
paulson@14237
  1056
  Theory.add_finals or Theory.add_finals_i) it is now possible to
paulson@14237
  1057
  declare constants "final", which prevents their being given a definition
paulson@14237
  1058
  later.  It is useful for constants whose behaviour is fixed axiomatically
skalberg@14224
  1059
  rather than definitionally, such as the meta-logic connectives.
skalberg@14224
  1060
wenzelm@14606
  1061
* Pure: 'instance' now handles general arities with general sorts

  (i.e. intersections of classes),
skalberg@14503
  1063
kleing@14547

* Presentation: generated HTML now uses a CSS style sheet to make layout
wenzelm@14731
  1065
  (somewhat) independent of content. It is copied from lib/html/isabelle.css.
kleing@14547

* Tactic emulation methods rule_tac, erule_tac, drule_tac, frule_tac,
ballarin@14508
  1072
  cut_tac, subgoal_tac and thin_tac:
ballarin@14175
  1073
  - Now understand static (Isar) contexts.  As a consequence, users of Isar
ballarin@14175
  1074
    locales are no longer forced to write Isar proof scripts.
ballarin@14175
  1075
    For details see Isar Reference Manual, paragraph 4.3.2: Further tactic
ballarin@14175
  1076
    emulations.
ballarin@14175
  1077
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: names of variables to be instantiated may no
ballarin@14211
  1078
    longer be enclosed in quotes.  Instead, precede variable name with `?'.
ballarin@14211
  1079
    This is consistent with the instantiation attribute "where".
ballarin@14211
  1080
ballarin@14257
  1081
* Attributes "where" and "of":
ballarin@14285
  1082
  - Now take type variables of instantiated theorem into account when reading
ballarin@14285
  1083
    the instantiation string.  This fixes a bug that caused instantiated
ballarin@14285
  1084
    theorems to have too special types in some circumstances.
ballarin@14285
  1085
  - "where" permits explicit instantiations of type variables.
ballarin@14257
  1086
wenzelm@14556
  1087
* Calculation commands "moreover" and "also" no longer interfere with
wenzelm@14556
  1088
  current facts ("this"), admitting arbitrary combinations with "then"
wenzelm@14556
  1089
  and derived forms.
kleing@14283
  1090
ballarin@14211
  1091
* Locales:
ballarin@14211
  1092
  - Goal statements involving the context element "includes" no longer
ballarin@14211
  1093
    generate theorems with internal delta predicates (those ending on
ballarin@14211
  1094
    "_axioms") in the premise.
ballarin@14211
  1095
    Resolve particular premise with <locale>.intro to obtain old form.
ballarin@14211
  1096
  - Fixed bug in type inference ("unify_frozen") that prevented mix of target
ballarin@14211
  1097
    specification and "includes" elements in goal statement.
ballarin@14254
  1098
  - Rule sets <locale>.intro and <locale>.axioms no longer declared as
ballarin@14254
  1099
    [intro?] and [elim?] (respectively) by default.
ballarin@14508
  1100
  - Experimental command for instantiation of locales in proof contexts:
ballarin@14551
  1101
        instantiate <label>[<attrs>]: <loc>
ballarin@14508
  1102
    Instantiates locale <loc> and adds all its theorems to the current context
ballarin@14551
  1103
    taking into account their attributes.  Label and attrs are optional
ballarin@14551
  1104
    modifiers, like in theorem declarations.  If present, names of
ballarin@14551
  1105
    instantiated theorems are qualified with <label>, and the attributes
ballarin@14551
  1106
    <attrs> are applied after any attributes these theorems might have already.
ballarin@14551
  1107
      If the locale has assumptions, a chained fact of the form
ballarin@14508
  1108
    "<loc> t1 ... tn" is expected from which instantiations of the parameters
ballarin@14551
  1109
    are derived.  The command does not support old-style locales declared
ballarin@14551
  1110
    with "locale (open)".
ballarin@14551
  1111
      A few (very simple) examples can be found in FOL/ex/LocaleInst.thy.

  1120
  the HOL4 system with about 2500 theorems. It is imported by
kleing@14624
  1121
  replaying proof terms produced by HOL4 in Isabelle. The HOL4 image
kleing@14624
  1122

* Simplifier:
ballarin@14398
  1126
  - Much improved handling of linear and partial orders.
ballarin@14398
  1127
    Reasoners for linear and partial orders are set up for type classes
ballarin@14398
  1128
    "linorder" and "order" respectively, and are added to the default simpset
ballarin@14398
  1129
    as solvers.  This means that the simplifier can build transitivity chains
ballarin@14398
  1130
    to solve goals from the assumptions.
ballarin@14398
  1131
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: old proofs break occasionally.  Typically, applications
ballarin@14398
  1132
    of blast or auto after simplification become unnecessary because the goal
ballarin@14398
  1133
    is solved by simplification already.
ballarin@14398
  1134
wenzelm@14731
  1135
* Numerics: new theory Ring_and_Field contains over 250 basic numerical laws,
paulson@14389
  1136
    all proved in axiomatic type classes for semirings, rings and fields.
paulson@14389
  1137
paulson@14389
  1138
* Numerics:
paulson@14389
  1139
  - Numeric types (nat, int, and in HOL-Complex rat, real, complex, etc.) are
wenzelm@14731
  1140
    now formalized using the Ring_and_Field theory mentioned above.
paulson@14389
  1141
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: simplification and arithmetic behaves somewhat differently
paulson@14389
  1142
    than before, because now they are set up once in a generic manner.
wenzelm@14731
  1143
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: many type-specific arithmetic laws have gone.
paulson@14480
  1144
    Look for the general versions in Ring_and_Field (and Power if they concern
paulson@14480
  1145
    exponentiation).
paulson@14389
  1146
paulson@14401
  1147
* Type "rat" of the rational numbers is now available in HOL-Complex.
paulson@14389
  1148
schirmer@14255
  1149
* Records:
schirmer@14255
  1150
  - Record types are now by default printed with their type abbreviation
schirmer@14255
  1151
    instead of the list of all field types. This can be configured via
schirmer@14255
  1152
    the reference "print_record_type_abbr".
wenzelm@14731
  1153
  - Simproc "record_upd_simproc" for simplification of multiple updates added
schirmer@14255
  1154
    (not enabled by default).
schirmer@14427
  1155
  - Simproc "record_ex_sel_eq_simproc" to simplify EX x. sel r = x resp.
schirmer@14427
  1156
    EX x. x = sel r to True (not enabled by default).
schirmer@14255
  1157
  - Tactic "record_split_simp_tac" to split and simplify records added.
wenzelm@14731
  1158
kleing@14136
  1159
* 'specification' command added, allowing for definition by
skalberg@14224
  1160
  specification.  There is also an 'ax_specification' command that
skalberg@14224
  1161
  introduces the new constants axiomatically.

* HOL-Matrix: a first theory for matrices in HOL with an application of
kleing@14610
  1171
  matrix theory to linear programming.
kleing@14136
  1172
nipkow@14380
  1173
* Unions and Intersections:
nipkow@15119
  1174
  The latex output syntax of UN and INT has been changed
nipkow@15119
  1175
  from "\Union x \in A. B" to "\Union_{x \in A} B"
nipkow@15119
  1176
  i.e. the index formulae has become a subscript.
nipkow@15119
  1177
  Similarly for "\Union x. B", and for \Inter instead of \Union.
nipkow@14380
  1178
kleing@14418
  1179
* Unions and Intersections over Intervals:
wenzelm@14731
  1180
  There is new short syntax "UN i<=n. A" for "UN i:{0..n}. A". There is
wenzelm@14731
  1181
  also an x-symbol version with subscripts "\<Union>\<^bsub>i <= n\<^esub>. A"
kleing@14418
  1182
  like in normal math, and corresponding versions for < and for intersection.
kleing@14418
  1183
nipkow@15677
  1184
* HOL/List: Ordering "lexico" is renamed "lenlex" and the standard
nipkow@15677
  1185
  lexicographic dictonary ordering has been added as "lexord".
nipkow@15677
  1186
paulson@14401
  1187
* ML: the legacy theory structures Int and List have been removed. They had
paulson@14401
  1188
  conflicted with ML Basis Library structures having the same names.
nipkow@14380
  1189
webertj@14464
  1190
* 'refute' command added to search for (finite) countermodels.  Only works
webertj@14464
  1191
  for a fragment of HOL.  The installation of an external SAT solver is
webertj@14464
  1192
  highly recommended.  See "HOL/Refute.thy" for details.
webertj@14464
  1193
berghofe@14602
  1194
* 'quickcheck' command: Allows to find counterexamples by evaluating
berghofe@14602
  1195
  formulae under an assignment of free variables to random values.
berghofe@14602
  1196
  In contrast to 'refute', it can deal with inductive datatypes,
berghofe@14602
  1197
  but cannot handle quantifiers. See "HOL/ex/Quickcheck_Examples.thy"
berghofe@14602
  1198

* Provers/simplifier:
berghofe@13618
  1213
nipkow@13781
  1214
  - Completely reimplemented method simp (ML: Asm_full_simp_tac):
berghofe@13618
  1215
    Assumptions are now subject to complete mutual simplification,
berghofe@13618
  1216
    not just from left to right. The simplifier now preserves
berghofe@13618
  1217
    the order of assumptions.
berghofe@13618
  1218
berghofe@13618
  1219
    Potential INCOMPATIBILITY:
berghofe@13618
  1220
nipkow@13781
  1221
    -- simp sometimes diverges where the old version did
nipkow@13781
  1222
       not, e.g. invoking simp on the goal
berghofe@13618
  1223
berghofe@13618
  1224
        [| P (f x); y = x; f x = f y |] ==> Q
berghofe@13618
  1225
nipkow@13781
  1226
       now gives rise to the infinite reduction sequence
nipkow@13781
  1227
nipkow@13781
  1228
        P(f x) --(f x = f y)--> P(f y) --(y = x)--> P(f x) --(f x = f y)--> ...
nipkow@13781
  1229
nipkow@13781
  1230
       Using "simp (asm_lr)" (ML: Asm_lr_simp_tac) instead often solves this
nipkow@13781
  1231
       kind of problem.
nipkow@13781
  1232
nipkow@13781
  1233
    -- Tactics combining classical reasoner and simplification (such as auto)
nipkow@13781
  1234
       are also affected by this change, because many of them rely on
nipkow@13781
  1235
       simp. They may sometimes diverge as well or yield a different numbers
nipkow@13781
  1236
       of subgoals. Try to use e.g. force, fastsimp, or safe instead of auto
nipkow@13781
  1237
       in case of problems. Sometimes subsequent calls to the classical
nipkow@13781
  1238
       reasoner will fail because a preceeding call to the simplifier too
nipkow@13781
  1239
       eagerly simplified the goal, e.g. deleted redundant premises.
berghofe@13618
  1240
berghofe@13618
  1241
  - The simplifier trace now shows the names of the applied rewrite rules
berghofe@13618
  1242
nipkow@13829
  1243
  - You can limit the number of recursive invocations of the simplifier
nipkow@13829
  1244
    during conditional rewriting (where the simplifie tries to solve the
nipkow@13829
  1245
    conditions before applying the rewrite rule):
nipkow@13829
  1246
    ML "simp_depth_limit := n"
nipkow@13829
  1247
    where n is an integer. Thus you can force termination where previously
nipkow@13829
  1248
    the simplifier would diverge.
nipkow@13829
  1249
ballarin@13835
  1250
  - Accepts free variables as head terms in congruence rules.  Useful in Isar.
nipkow@13829

ballarin@13938
  1252
  - No longer aborts on failed congruence proof.  Instead, the
ballarin@13938

nipkow@13868

* Pure: The main goal of the proof state is no longer shown by default, only
nipkow@13868
  1260
the subgoals. This behaviour is controlled by a new flag.
ballarin@13835
  1261
   PG menu: Isabelle/Isar -> Settings -> Show Main Goal

(ML: Proof.show_main_goal).

* Pure: You can find all matching introduction rules for subgoal 1, i.e. all
nipkow@13815
  1265
rules whose conclusion matches subgoal 1:
nipkow@13815
  1266
      PG menu: Isabelle/Isar -> Show me -> matching rules
nipkow@13815
  1267
The rules are ordered by how closely they match the subgoal.
nipkow@13815
  1268
In particular, rules that solve a subgoal outright are displayed first
nipkow@13815
  1269
(or rather last, the way they are printed).

  1270
(ML: ProofGeneral.print_intros())
nipkow@13815
  1271
nipkow@13815
  1272
* Pure: New flag trace_unify_fail causes unification to print
nipkow@13781
  1273
diagnostic information (PG: in trace buffer) when it fails. This is
nipkow@13781
  1274
useful for figuring out why single step proofs like rule, erule or
nipkow@13781
  1275
assumption failed.
nipkow@13781
  1276
nipkow@13815
  1277
* Pure: Locale specifications now produce predicate definitions
wenzelm@13410
  1278
according to the body of text (covering assumptions modulo local
wenzelm@13410
  1279
definitions); predicate "loc_axioms" covers newly introduced text,
wenzelm@13410
  1280
while "loc" is cumulative wrt. all included locale expressions; the
wenzelm@13410
  1281
latter view is presented only on export into the global theory
wenzelm@13410
  1282
context; potential INCOMPATIBILITY, use "(open)" option to fall back
wenzelm@13410
  1283
on the old view without predicates;
wenzelm@13410
  1284
wenzelm@13459
  1285
* Pure: predefined locales "var" and "struct" are useful for sharing
wenzelm@13459
  1286
parameters (as in CASL, for example); just specify something like
wenzelm@13459
  1287
``var x + var y + struct M'' as import;
wenzelm@13459
  1288
wenzelm@13463
  1289
* Pure: improved thms_containing: proper indexing of facts instead of
wenzelm@13463
  1290
raw theorems; check validity of results wrt. current name space;
wenzelm@13463
  1291
include local facts of proof configuration (also covers active
wenzelm@13541

*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@11572
  1432
wenzelm@11842
  1433
* greatly simplified document preparation setup, including more
wenzelm@11842
  1434
graceful interpretation of isatool usedir -i/-d/-D options, and more
wenzelm@11842
  1435
instructive isatool mkdir; users should basically be able to get
wenzelm@12899
  1436
started with "isatool mkdir HOL Test && isatool make"; alternatively,
wenzelm@12899
  1437
users may run a separate document processing stage manually like this:
wenzelm@12899
  1438
"isatool usedir -D output HOL Test && isatool document Test/output";
wenzelm@11842
  1439
wenzelm@11842
  1440
* theory dependency graph may now be incorporated into documents;
wenzelm@11842
  1441
isatool usedir -g true will produce session_graph.eps/.pdf for use

wenzelm@11864

* Pure/Provers: improved proof by cases and induction;
wenzelm@12280
  1465
  - 'case' command admits impromptu naming of parameters (such as
wenzelm@12280
  1466
    "case (Suc n)");
wenzelm@12280
  1467
  - 'induct' method divinates rule instantiation from the inductive
wenzelm@12280
  1468
    claim; no longer requires excessive ?P bindings for proper
wenzelm@12280
  1469
    instantiation of cases;
wenzelm@12280
  1470
  - 'induct' method properly enumerates all possibilities of set/type
wenzelm@12280
  1471
    rules; as a consequence facts may be also passed through *type*
wenzelm@12280
  1472
    rules without further ado;
wenzelm@12280
  1473
  - 'induct' method now derives symbolic cases from the *rulified*
wenzelm@12280
  1474
    rule (before it used to rulify cases stemming from the internal
wenzelm@12280
  1475
    atomized version); this means that the context of a non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
  1476
    statement becomes is included in the hypothesis, avoiding the
wenzelm@12280
  1477
    slightly cumbersome show "PROP ?case" form;
wenzelm@12280
  1478
  - 'induct' may now use elim-style induction rules without chaining
wenzelm@12280
  1479
    facts, using ``missing'' premises from the goal state; this allows
wenzelm@12280
  1480
    rules stemming from inductive sets to be applied in unstructured
wenzelm@12280
  1481
    scripts, while still benefitting from proper handling of non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
  1482
    statements; NB: major inductive premises need to be put first, all
wenzelm@12280
  1483
    the rest of the goal is passed through the induction;
wenzelm@12280
  1484
  - 'induct' proper support for mutual induction involving non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
  1485
    rule statements (uses the new concept of simultaneous goals, see
wenzelm@12280
  1486
    below);
wenzelm@12853
  1487
  - append all possible rule selections, but only use the first
wenzelm@12853
  1488
    success (no backtracking);
wenzelm@11995
  1489
  - removed obsolete "(simplified)" and "(stripped)" options of methods;
wenzelm@12754
  1490
  - undeclared rule case names default to numbers 1, 2, 3, ...;
wenzelm@12754
  1491
  - added 'print_induct_rules' (covered by help item in recent Proof
wenzelm@12754
  1492
    General versions);
wenzelm@11995
  1493
  - moved induct/cases attributes to Pure, methods to Provers;
wenzelm@11995
  1494
  - generic method setup instantiated for FOL and HOL;
wenzelm@11986
  1495
wenzelm@12163
  1496
* Pure: support multiple simultaneous goal statements, for example
wenzelm@12163
  1497
"have a: A and b: B" (same for 'theorem' etc.); being a pure
wenzelm@12163
  1498
meta-level mechanism, this acts as if several individual goals had
wenzelm@12163
  1499
been stated separately; in particular common proof methods need to be
wenzelm@12163
  1500
repeated in order to cover all claims; note that a single elimination
wenzelm@12163
  1501
step is *not* sufficient to establish the two conjunctions, so this
wenzelm@12163
  1502
fails:
wenzelm@12163
  1503
wenzelm@12163
  1504
  assume "A & B" then have A and B ..   (*".." fails*)
wenzelm@12163
  1505
wenzelm@12163
  1506
better use "obtain" in situations as above; alternative refer to
wenzelm@12163
  1507
multi-step methods like 'auto', 'simp_all', 'blast+' etc.;
wenzelm@12163
  1508
wenzelm@12078
  1509
* Pure: proper integration with ``locales''; unlike the original
webertj@15154
  1510
version by Florian Kammller, Isar locales package high-level proof
wenzelm@12078
  1511
contexts rather than raw logical ones (e.g. we admit to include
wenzelm@12280
  1512
attributes everywhere); operations on locales include merge and
wenzelm@12964
  1513
rename; support for implicit arguments (``structures''); simultaneous
wenzelm@12964
  1514
type-inference over imports and text; see also HOL/ex/Locales.thy for
wenzelm@12964
  1515
some examples;
wenzelm@12078
  1516
wenzelm@12707
  1517
* Pure: the following commands have been ``localized'', supporting a
wenzelm@12707
  1518
target locale specification "(in name)": 'lemma', 'theorem',
wenzelm@12707
  1519
'corollary', 'lemmas', 'theorems', 'declare'; the results will be
wenzelm@12707
  1520
stored both within the locale and at the theory level (exported and
wenzelm@12707
  1521
qualified by the locale name);
wenzelm@12707
  1522
wenzelm@12964
  1523
* Pure: theory goals may now be specified in ``long'' form, with
wenzelm@12964
  1524
ad-hoc contexts consisting of arbitrary locale elements. for example
wenzelm@12964
  1525
``lemma foo: fixes x assumes "A x" shows "B x"'' (local syntax and
wenzelm@12964
  1526
definitions may be given, too); the result is a meta-level rule with
wenzelm@12964
  1527
the context elements being discharged in the obvious way;
wenzelm@12964
  1528
wenzelm@12964
  1529
* Pure: new proof command 'using' allows to augment currently used
wenzelm@12964
  1530
facts after a goal statement ('using' is syntactically analogous to
wenzelm@12964
  1531
'apply', but acts on the goal's facts only); this allows chained facts
wenzelm@12964
  1532
to be separated into parts given before and after a claim, as in
wenzelm@12964
  1533
``from a and b have C using d and e <proof>'';
wenzelm@12078
  1534
wenzelm@11722
  1535
* Pure: renamed "antecedent" case to "rule_context";
wenzelm@11722
  1536
wenzelm@12964
  1537
* Pure: new 'judgment' command records explicit information about the
wenzelm@12964
  1538
object-logic embedding (used by several tools internally); no longer
wenzelm@12964
  1539
use hard-wired "Trueprop";
wenzelm@12964
  1540
wenzelm@11738
  1541
* Pure: added 'corollary' command;
wenzelm@11738
  1542
wenzelm@11722
  1543
* Pure: fixed 'token_translation' command;
wenzelm@11722
  1544
wenzelm@11899
  1545
* Pure: removed obsolete 'exported' attribute;
wenzelm@11899
  1546
wenzelm@11933
  1547
* Pure: dummy pattern "_" in is/let is now automatically lifted over
wenzelm@11933
  1548
bound variables: "ALL x. P x --> Q x" (is "ALL x. _ --> ?C x")
wenzelm@11899
  1549
supersedes more cumbersome ... (is "ALL x. _ x --> ?C x");
wenzelm@11899
  1550
wenzelm@11952
  1551
* Pure: method 'atomize' presents local goal premises as object-level
wenzelm@11952
  1552
statements (atomic meta-level propositions); setup controlled via
wenzelm@11952
  1553
rewrite rules declarations of 'atomize' attribute; example
wenzelm@11952
  1554
application: 'induct' method with proper rule statements in improper
wenzelm@11952
  1555
proof *scripts*;
wenzelm@11952
  1556
wenzelm@12106
  1557
* Pure: emulation of instantiation tactics (rule_tac, cut_tac, etc.)
wenzelm@12106
  1558
now consider the syntactic context of assumptions, giving a better
wenzelm@12106
  1559
chance to get type-inference of the arguments right (this is
wenzelm@12106
  1560
especially important for locales);
wenzelm@12106
  1561
wenzelm@12312
  1562
* Pure: "sorry" no longer requires quick_and_dirty in interactive
wenzelm@12312
  1563
mode;
wenzelm@12312
  1564
wenzelm@12405
  1565
* Pure/obtain: the formal conclusion "thesis", being marked as
wenzelm@12405
  1566
``internal'', may no longer be reference directly in the text;
wenzelm@12405
  1567
potential INCOMPATIBILITY, may need to use "?thesis" in rare
wenzelm@12405
  1568
situations;
wenzelm@12405
  1569
wenzelm@12405
  1570
* Pure: generic 'sym' attribute which declares a rule both as pure

  1571
'elim?' and for the 'symmetric' operation;
wenzelm@12405
  1572
wenzelm@12877
  1573
* Pure: marginal comments ``--'' may now occur just anywhere in the
wenzelm@12877
  1574
text; the fixed correlation with particular command syntax has been
wenzelm@12877
  1575
discontinued;
wenzelm@12877
  1576
berghofe@13023
  1577
* Pure: new method 'rules' is particularly well-suited for proof
berghofe@13023
  1578
search in intuitionistic logic; a bit slower than 'blast' or 'fast',
berghofe@13023
  1579
but often produces more compact proof terms with less detours;
berghofe@13023
  1580
wenzelm@12364
  1581
* Pure/Provers/classical: simplified integration with pure rule
wenzelm@12364
  1582
attributes and methods; the classical "intro?/elim?/dest?"
wenzelm@12364
  1583
declarations coincide with the pure ones; the "rule" method no longer
wenzelm@12364
  1584
includes classically swapped intros; "intro" and "elim" methods no
wenzelm@12364
  1585
longer pick rules from the context; also got rid of ML declarations
wenzelm@12364
  1586
AddXIs/AddXEs/AddXDs; all of this has some potential for
wenzelm@12364
  1587
INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12364
  1588
wenzelm@12405
  1589
* Provers/classical: attribute 'swapped' produces classical inversions
wenzelm@12405
  1590
of introduction rules;
wenzelm@12405
  1591
wenzelm@12364
  1592
* Provers/simplifier: 'simplified' attribute may refer to explicit
wenzelm@12364
  1593
rules instead of full simplifier context; 'iff' attribute handles
wenzelm@12364
  1594
conditional rules;
wenzelm@11936
  1595
wenzelm@11745
  1596
* HOL: 'typedef' now allows alternative names for Rep/Abs morphisms;
wenzelm@11745
  1597
wenzelm@11690
  1598
* HOL: 'recdef' now fails on unfinished automated proofs, use
wenzelm@11633
  1599
"(permissive)" option to recover old behavior;
wenzelm@11633
  1600
wenzelm@11933
  1601
* HOL: 'inductive' no longer features separate (collective) attributes
wenzelm@11933
  1602
for 'intros' (was found too confusing);
wenzelm@11933
  1603
wenzelm@12405
  1604
* HOL: properly declared induction rules less_induct and
wenzelm@12405
  1605
wf_induct_rule;
wenzelm@12405

kleing@11788

  1608
*** HOL ***
wenzelm@11474
  1609
wenzelm@11702
  1610
* HOL: moved over to sane numeral syntax; the new policy is as
wenzelm@11702
  1611
follows:
wenzelm@11702
  1612
wenzelm@11702
  1613
  - 0 and 1 are polymorphic constants, which are defined on any
wenzelm@11702
  1614
  numeric type (nat, int, real etc.);
wenzelm@11702
  1615
wenzelm@11702
  1616
  - 2, 3, 4, ... and -1, -2, -3, ... are polymorphic numerals, based
wenzelm@11702
  1617
  binary representation internally;
wenzelm@11702
  1618
wenzelm@11702
  1619
  - type nat has special constructor Suc, and generally prefers Suc 0
wenzelm@11702
  1620
  over 1::nat and Suc (Suc 0) over 2::nat;
wenzelm@11702
  1621
wenzelm@12364
  1622
This change may cause significant problems of INCOMPATIBILITY; here
wenzelm@12364
  1623
are some hints on converting existing sources:
wenzelm@11702
  1624
wenzelm@11702
  1625
  - due to the new "num" token, "-0" and "-1" etc. are now atomic
wenzelm@11702
  1626
  entities, so expressions involving "-" (unary or binary minus) need
wenzelm@11702
  1627
  to be spaced properly;
wenzelm@11702
  1628
wenzelm@11702
  1629
  - existing occurrences of "1" may need to be constraint "1::nat" or
wenzelm@11702
  1630
  even replaced by Suc 0; similar for old "2";
wenzelm@11702
  1631
wenzelm@11702
  1632
  - replace "#nnn" by "nnn", and "#-nnn" by "-nnn";
wenzelm@11702
  1633
wenzelm@11702
  1634
  - remove all special provisions on numerals in proofs;
wenzelm@11702
  1635
wenzelm@13042
  1636
* HOL: simp rules nat_number expand numerals on nat to Suc/0
wenzelm@12837
  1637
representation (depends on bin_arith_simps in the default context);
wenzelm@12837
  1638
wenzelm@12736
  1639
* HOL: symbolic syntax for x^2 (numeral 2);
wenzelm@12736
  1640
wenzelm@12335
  1641
* HOL: the class of all HOL types is now called "type" rather than
wenzelm@12335
  1642
"term"; INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt references to this type class
wenzelm@12335
  1643
in axclass/classes, instance/arities, and (usually rare) occurrences
wenzelm@12335
  1644
in typings (of consts etc.); internally the class is called
wenzelm@12335
  1645
"HOL.type", ML programs should refer to HOLogic.typeS;
wenzelm@12335
  1646
wenzelm@12280
  1647
* HOL/record package improvements:
wenzelm@12280
  1648
  - new derived operations "fields" to build a partial record section,
wenzelm@12280
  1649
    "extend" to promote a fixed record to a record scheme, and
wenzelm@12280
  1650
    "truncate" for the reverse; cf. theorems "xxx.defs", which are *not*
wenzelm@12280
  1651
    declared as simp by default;
wenzelm@12587
  1652
  - shared operations ("more", "fields", etc.) now need to be always
wenzelm@12587
  1653
    qualified) --- potential INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12280
  1654
  - removed "make_scheme" operations (use "make" with "extend") --
wenzelm@12280
  1655
    INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@11937
  1656
  - removed "more" class (simply use "term") -- INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12253
  1657
  - provides cases/induct rules for use with corresponding Isar
wenzelm@12253
  1658
    methods (for concrete records, record schemes, concrete more
wenzelm@12280
  1659
    parts, and schematic more parts -- in that order);
wenzelm@11930
  1660
  - internal definitions directly based on a light-weight abstract
wenzelm@11930
  1661
    theory of product types over typedef rather than datatype;
wenzelm@11930
  1662
berghofe@13023
  1663
* HOL: generic code generator for generating executable ML code from
berghofe@13023
  1664
specifications; specific support for HOL constructs such as inductive
berghofe@13023
  1665
datatypes and sets, as well as recursive functions; can be invoked
berghofe@13023
  1666
via 'generate_code' theory section;
berghofe@13023
  1667
wenzelm@11933
  1668
* HOL: canonical cases/induct rules for n-tuples (n = 3..7);
wenzelm@11933
  1669
paulson@13824
  1670
* HOL: consolidated and renamed several theories.  In particular:
wenzelm@14731
  1671
        Ord.thy has been absorbed into HOL.thy
wenzelm@14731
  1672
        String.thy has been absorbed into List.thy
wenzelm@14731
  1673
wenzelm@11802
  1674
* HOL: concrete setsum syntax "\<Sum>i:A. b" == "setsum (%i. b) A"
wenzelm@11802
  1675
(beware of argument permutation!);
wenzelm@11802
  1676
wenzelm@11657
  1677
* HOL: linorder_less_split superseded by linorder_cases;
wenzelm@11657
  1678
wenzelm@12917
  1679
* HOL/List: "nodups" renamed to "distinct";
nipkow@12889
  1680
wenzelm@11633
  1681
* HOL: added "The" definite description operator; move Hilbert's "Eps"
paulson@13824
  1682
to peripheral theory "Hilbert_Choice"; some INCOMPATIBILITIES:
paulson@13824
  1683
  - Ex_def has changed, now need to use some_eq_ex
wenzelm@11437
  1684
wenzelm@11572
  1685
* HOL: made split_all_tac safe; EXISTING PROOFS MAY FAIL OR LOOP, so
wenzelm@11572
  1686
in this (rare) case use:
wenzelm@11572
  1687
wenzelm@11572
  1688
  delSWrapper "split_all_tac"
wenzelm@11572
  1689
  addSbefore ("unsafe_split_all_tac", unsafe_split_all_tac)
wenzelm@11572
  1690
wenzelm@11572
  1691
* HOL: added safe wrapper "split_conv_tac" to claset; EXISTING PROOFS
wenzelm@11474
  1692
MAY FAIL;
nipkow@11361
  1693
wenzelm@11572
  1694
* HOL: introduced f^n = f o ... o f; warning: due to the limits of
wenzelm@11572
  1695
Isabelle's type classes, ^ on functions and relations has too general
wenzelm@11572
  1696
a domain, namely ('a * 'b) set and 'a => 'b; this means that it may be
wenzelm@11572
  1697
necessary to attach explicit type constraints;
nipkow@11307
  1698
wenzelm@12917
  1699
* HOL/Relation: the prefix name of the infix "O" has been changed from
wenzelm@12917
  1700
"comp" to "rel_comp"; INCOMPATIBILITY: a few theorems have been
wenzelm@12917
  1701
renamed accordingly (eg "compI" -> "rel_compI").
nipkow@12489
  1702
wenzelm@11487
  1703
* HOL: syntax translations now work properly with numerals and records
wenzelm@11487
  1704
expressions;
wenzelm@11474
  1705
wenzelm@12457
  1706
* HOL: bounded abstraction now uses syntax "%" / "\<lambda>" instead
wenzelm@12457
  1707
of "lam" -- INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@11474
  1708
wenzelm@11933
  1709
* HOL: got rid of some global declarations (potential INCOMPATIBILITY
wenzelm@11933
  1710
for ML tools): const "()" renamed "Product_Type.Unity", type "unit"
wenzelm@11933
  1711
renamed "Product_Type.unit";
wenzelm@11611
  1712
nipkow@12564
  1713
* HOL: renamed rtrancl_into_rtrancl2 to converse_rtrancl_into_rtrancl
nipkow@12564
  1714
wenzelm@12924
  1715
* HOL: removed obsolete theorem "optionE" (use "option.exhaust", or
wenzelm@12924
  1716
the "cases" method);
wenzelm@12924
  1717
wenzelm@12597
  1718
* HOL/GroupTheory: group theory examples including Sylow's theorem (by
webertj@15154
  1719
Florian Kammller);
wenzelm@12597
  1720
wenzelm@12608
  1721
* HOL/IMP: updated and converted to new-style theory format; several
wenzelm@12608
  1722
parts turned into readable document, with proper Isar proof texts and
wenzelm@12608
  1723
some explanations (by Gerwin Klein);
wenzelm@12597
  1724
wenzelm@12734
  1725
* HOL-Real: added Complex_Numbers (by Gertrud Bauer);
wenzelm@12734
  1726
wenzelm@12690
  1727
* HOL-Hyperreal is now a logic image;
wenzelm@12690

wenzelm@12022
  1730
*** HOLCF ***
wenzelm@12022
  1731
wenzelm@12622
  1732
* Isar: consts/constdefs supports mixfix syntax for continuous
wenzelm@12622
  1733
operations;
wenzelm@12622
  1734
wenzelm@12622
  1735
* Isar: domain package adapted to new-style theory format, e.g. see
wenzelm@12622
  1736
HOLCF/ex/Dnat.thy;
wenzelm@12622
  1737
wenzelm@12622
  1738
* theory Lift: proper use of rep_datatype lift instead of ML hacks --
wenzelm@12280
  1739
potential INCOMPATIBILITY; now use plain induct_tac instead of former
wenzelm@12280
  1740
lift.induct_tac, always use UU instead of Undef;
wenzelm@12022
  1741
wenzelm@12597
  1742
* HOLCF/IMP: updated and converted to new-style theory;
wenzelm@12597

wenzelm@12022
  1744
wenzelm@11474
  1745
*** ZF ***
wenzelm@11474
  1746
wenzelm@12622
  1747
* Isar: proper integration of logic-specific tools and packages,
wenzelm@12622
  1748
including theory commands '(co)inductive', '(co)datatype',
wenzelm@12622
  1749
'rep_datatype', 'inductive_cases', as well as methods 'ind_cases',
wenzelm@12622
  1750
'induct_tac', 'case_tac', and 'typecheck' (with attribute 'TC');
wenzelm@12622
  1751
wenzelm@12622
  1752
* theory Main no longer includes AC; for the Axiom of Choice, base
wenzelm@12622
  1753
your theory on Main_ZFC;
wenzelm@12622
  1754
wenzelm@12622
  1755
* the integer library now covers quotients and remainders, with many
wenzelm@12622
  1756
laws relating division to addition, multiplication, etc.;
paulson@12563
  1757
wenzelm@12280
  1758
* ZF/UNITY: Chandy and Misra's UNITY is now available in ZF, giving a
wenzelm@12280
  1759
typeless version of the formalism;
wenzelm@12280
  1760
wenzelm@13025
  1761
* ZF/AC, Coind, IMP, Resid: updated and converted to new-style theory
wenzelm@13025
  1762
format;
wenzelm@12608
  1763
wenzelm@12280
  1764
* ZF/Induct: new directory for examples of inductive definitions,
wenzelm@12608
  1765
including theory Multiset for multiset orderings; converted to
wenzelm@12608
  1766
new-style theory format;
wenzelm@12177
  1767
wenzelm@13025
  1768
* ZF: many new theorems about lists, ordinals, etc.;

wenzelm@11474
  1771
*** General ***
wenzelm@11474
  1772
wenzelm@12280
  1773
* Pure/kernel: meta-level proof terms (by Stefan Berghofer); reference
wenzelm@12280
  1774
variable proof controls level of detail: 0 = no proofs (only oracle
wenzelm@12280
  1775
dependencies), 1 = lemma dependencies, 2 = compact proof terms; see
wenzelm@12280
  1776
also ref manual for further ML interfaces;
wenzelm@12280
  1777
wenzelm@12280
  1778
* Pure/axclass: removed obsolete ML interface
wenzelm@12280
  1779
goal_subclass/goal_arity;
wenzelm@12280
  1780
wenzelm@12280
  1781
* Pure/syntax: new token syntax "num" for plain numerals (without "#"
wenzelm@12280
  1782
of "xnum"); potential INCOMPATIBILITY, since -0, -1 etc. are now
wenzelm@12280
  1783
separate tokens, so expressions involving minus need to be spaced
wenzelm@12280
  1784
properly;
wenzelm@12280
  1785
wenzelm@12312
  1786
* Pure/syntax: support non-oriented infixes, using keyword "infix"
wenzelm@12312
  1787
rather than "infixl" or "infixr";
wenzelm@12312
  1788
wenzelm@12312
  1789
* Pure/syntax: concrete syntax for dummy type variables admits genuine
wenzelm@12312
  1790
sort constraint specifications in type inference; e.g. "x::_::foo"
wenzelm@12312
  1791
ensures that the type of "x" is of sort "foo" (but not necessarily a
wenzelm@12312
  1792
type variable);
wenzelm@12280
  1793
wenzelm@12280
  1794
* Pure/syntax: print modes "type_brackets" and "no_type_brackets"
wenzelm@12280
  1795
control output of nested => (types); the default behavior is
wenzelm@12280
  1796
"type_brackets";
wenzelm@12280
  1797
wenzelm@12280
  1798
* Pure/syntax: builtin parse translation for "_constify" turns valued
wenzelm@11817
  1799
tokens into AST constants;
wenzelm@11474
  1800
wenzelm@12280
  1801
* Pure/syntax: prefer later declarations of translations and print
wenzelm@12280
  1802
translation functions; potential INCOMPATIBILITY: need to reverse
wenzelm@12280
  1803
multiple declarations for same syntax element constant;
wenzelm@12280
  1804
wenzelm@12832
  1805
* Pure/show_hyps reset by default (in accordance to existing Isar
wenzelm@12832
  1806
practice);
wenzelm@12832
  1807
wenzelm@12280
  1808
* Provers/classical: renamed addaltern to addafter, addSaltern to
wenzelm@12280
  1809
addSafter;
wenzelm@12280
  1810
wenzelm@12280
  1811
* Provers/clasimp: ``iff'' declarations now handle conditional rules
wenzelm@12280
  1812
as well;
wenzelm@12253
  1813
wenzelm@12538
  1814
* system: tested support for MacOS X; should be able to get Isabelle +
wenzelm@12538
  1815
Proof General to work in a plain Terminal after installing Poly/ML
wenzelm@12538
  1816
(e.g. from the Isabelle distribution area) and GNU bash alone
wenzelm@12538
  1817
(e.g. from http://www.apple.com); full X11, XEmacs and X-Symbol
wenzelm@12538
  1818
support requires further installations, e.g. from
wenzelm@12538
  1819
http://fink.sourceforge.net/);
wenzelm@12538
  1820
wenzelm@12280
  1821
* system: support Poly/ML 4.1.1 (able to manage larger heaps);
wenzelm@11551
  1822
wenzelm@12753
  1823
* system: reduced base memory usage by Poly/ML (approx. 20 MB instead
wenzelm@12753
  1824
of 40 MB), cf. ML_OPTIONS;
wenzelm@12753
  1825
wenzelm@11633
  1826
* system: Proof General keywords specification is now part of the
wenzelm@11633
  1827
Isabelle distribution (see etc/isar-keywords.el);
wenzelm@11633
  1828
wenzelm@12728
  1829
* system: support for persistent Proof General sessions (refrain from
wenzelm@12728
  1830
outdating all loaded theories on startup); user may create writable
wenzelm@12728
  1831
logic images like this: ``isabelle -q HOL Test'';
wenzelm@12597
  1832
wenzelm@11551
  1833
* system: smart selection of Isabelle process versus Isabelle
wenzelm@11572
  1834
interface, accommodates case-insensitive file systems (e.g. HFS+); may
wenzelm@11572
  1835
run both "isabelle" and "Isabelle" even if file names are badly
wenzelm@11572
  1836
damaged (executable inspects the case of the first letter of its own
wenzelm@11572
  1837
name); added separate "isabelle-process" and "isabelle-interface";
wenzelm@11551
  1838
wenzelm@12472
  1839
* system: refrain from any attempt at filtering input streams; no
wenzelm@12472
  1840
longer support ``8bit'' encoding of old isabelle font, instead proper
wenzelm@12472
  1841
iso-latin characters may now be used; the related isatools
wenzelm@12472
  1842
"symbolinput" and "nonascii" have disappeared as well;
wenzelm@12472
  1843
wenzelm@12472
  1844
* system: removed old "xterm" interface (the print modes "xterm" and

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES ***
nipkow@10224
  1854
paulson@11241
  1855
* HOL: please note that theories in the Library and elsewhere often use the
paulson@11241
  1856
new-style (Isar) format; to refer to their theorems in an ML script you must
wenzelm@12622
  1857
bind them to ML identifers by e.g.      val thm_name = thm "thm_name";
paulson@11241
  1858
wenzelm@11043
  1859
* HOL: inductive package no longer splits induction rule aggressively,
wenzelm@11043
  1860
but only as far as specified by the introductions given; the old
oheimb@11130
  1861
format may be recovered via ML function complete_split_rule or attribute
wenzelm@11043
  1862
'split_rule (complete)';
wenzelm@11043
  1863
wenzelm@10998
  1864
* HOL: induct renamed to lfp_induct, lfp_Tarski to lfp_unfold,
wenzelm@10998
  1865
gfp_Tarski to gfp_unfold;
nipkow@10224
  1866
paulson@10288
  1867
* HOL: contrapos, contrapos2 renamed to contrapos_nn, contrapos_pp;
paulson@10288
  1868
wenzelm@10858
  1869
* HOL: infix "dvd" now has priority 50 rather than 70 (because it is a
wenzelm@10858
  1870
relation); infix "^^" has been renamed "``"; infix "``" has been
wenzelm@10858
  1871
renamed "`"; "univalent" has been renamed "single_valued";
nipkow@10793
  1872
wenzelm@10998
  1873
* HOL/Real: "rinv" and "hrinv" replaced by overloaded "inverse"
wenzelm@10998
  1874
operation;
wenzelm@10998
  1875
nipkow@10868
  1876
* HOLCF: infix "`" has been renamed "$"; the symbol syntax is \<cdot>;
nipkow@10856
  1877
wenzelm@10391
  1878
* Isar: 'obtain' no longer declares "that" fact as simp/intro;
wenzelm@10391
  1879
wenzelm@10401
  1880
* Isar/HOL: method 'induct' now handles non-atomic goals; as a
wenzelm@10401
  1881
consequence, it is no longer monotonic wrt. the local goal context
wenzelm@10401
  1882
(which is now passed through the inductive cases);
wenzelm@10401
  1883
wenzelm@10976
  1884
* Document preparation: renamed standard symbols \<ll> to \<lless> and
wenzelm@10976
  1885
\<gg> to \<ggreater>;
wenzelm@10976
  1886
nipkow@10224

wenzelm@10245
  1888
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@10245
  1889
wenzelm@10858
  1890
* \isabellestyle{NAME} selects version of Isabelle output (currently
wenzelm@10858
  1891
available: are "it" for near math-mode best-style output, "sl" for
wenzelm@10858
  1892
slanted text style, and "tt" for plain type-writer; if no
wenzelm@10858
  1893
\isabellestyle command is given, output is according to slanted
wenzelm@10858
  1894
type-writer);
wenzelm@10858
  1895
wenzelm@10322
  1896
* support sub/super scripts (for single symbols only), input syntax is
wenzelm@10322
  1897
like this: "A\<^sup>*" or "A\<^sup>\<star>";
wenzelm@10322
  1898
wenzelm@10858
  1899
* some more standard symbols; see Appendix A of the system manual for
wenzelm@11062
  1900
the complete list of symbols defined in isabellesym.sty;
wenzelm@10858
  1901
wenzelm@10998
  1902
* improved isabelle style files; more abstract symbol implementation
wenzelm@10998
  1903
(should now use \isamath{...} and \isatext{...} in custom symbol
wenzelm@10998
  1904
definitions);
wenzelm@10998
  1905
wenzelm@10634
  1906
* antiquotation @{goals} and @{subgoals} for output of *dynamic* goals
wenzelm@10634
  1907
state; Note that presentation of goal states does not conform to
wenzelm@10634
  1908
actual human-readable proof documents.  Please do not include goal
wenzelm@10634
  1909
states into document output unless you really know what you are doing!
wenzelm@10322
  1910
wenzelm@11062
  1911
* proper indentation of antiquoted output with proportional LaTeX
wenzelm@11062
  1912
fonts;
wenzelm@10862
  1913
wenzelm@11050
  1914
* no_document ML operator temporarily disables LaTeX document
wenzelm@11050
  1915
generation;
wenzelm@11050
  1916
wenzelm@11062
  1917
* isatool unsymbolize tunes sources for plain ASCII communication;
wenzelm@11062
  1918
wenzelm@10322
  1919
wenzelm@10306
  1920
*** Isar ***
wenzelm@10306
  1921
wenzelm@10547
  1922
* Pure: Isar now suffers initial goal statements to contain unbound
wenzelm@10547
  1923
schematic variables (this does not conform to actual readable proof
wenzelm@10547
  1924
documents, due to unpredictable outcome and non-compositional proof
wenzelm@10547
  1925
checking); users who know what they are doing may use schematic goals
wenzelm@10547
  1926
for Prolog-style synthesis of proven results;
wenzelm@10547
  1927
wenzelm@10391
  1928
* Pure: assumption method (an implicit finishing) now handles actual
wenzelm@10391
  1929
rules as well;
wenzelm@10391
  1930
wenzelm@10391
  1931
* Pure: improved 'obtain' --- moved to Pure, insert "that" into
wenzelm@10391
  1932
initial goal, declare "that" only as Pure intro (only for single
wenzelm@10391
  1933
steps); the "that" rule assumption may now be involved in implicit
wenzelm@10391
  1934
finishing, thus ".." becomes a feasible for trivial obtains;
wenzelm@10391
  1935
wenzelm@10391
  1936
* Pure: default proof step now includes 'intro_classes'; thus trivial
wenzelm@10391
  1937
instance proofs may be performed by "..";
wenzelm@10391
  1938
wenzelm@10391
  1939
* Pure: ?thesis / ?this / "..." now work for pure meta-level
wenzelm@10391
  1940
statements as well;
wenzelm@10306
  1941
wenzelm@11097
  1942
* Pure: more robust selection of calculational rules;
wenzelm@11097
  1943
wenzelm@10858
  1944
* Pure: the builtin notion of 'finished' goal now includes the ==-refl
wenzelm@10858
  1945
rule (as well as the assumption rule);
wenzelm@10858
  1946
wenzelm@10858
  1947
* Pure: 'thm_deps' command visualizes dependencies of theorems and
wenzelm@10858
  1948
lemmas, using the graph browser tool;
wenzelm@10858
  1949
wenzelm@10944
  1950
* Pure: predict failure of "show" in interactive mode;
wenzelm@10944
  1951
wenzelm@11016
  1952
* Pure: 'thms_containing' now takes actual terms as arguments;
wenzelm@11016
  1953
wenzelm@10401
  1954
* HOL: improved method 'induct' --- now handles non-atomic goals
wenzelm@10401
  1955
(potential INCOMPATIBILITY); tuned error handling;
wenzelm@10401
  1956
wenzelm@10557
  1957
* HOL: cases and induct rules now provide explicit hints about the
wenzelm@10547
  1958
number of facts to be consumed (0 for "type" and 1 for "set" rules);
wenzelm@10547
  1959
any remaining facts are inserted into the goal verbatim;
wenzelm@10547
  1960
wenzelm@10858
  1961
* HOL: local contexts (aka cases) may now contain term bindings as
wenzelm@10858
  1962
well; the 'cases' and 'induct' methods new provide a ?case binding for
wenzelm@10858
  1963
the result to be shown in each case;
wenzelm@10858
  1964
wenzelm@10770
  1965
* HOL: added 'recdef_tc' command;
wenzelm@10770
  1966
wenzelm@11016
  1967
* isatool convert assists in eliminating legacy ML scripts;
wenzelm@11016
  1968
wenzelm@10306
  1969
wenzelm@10245
  1970
*** HOL ***
wenzelm@10245
  1971
wenzelm@10245
  1972
* HOL/Library: a collection of generic theories to be used together
wenzelm@10245
  1973
with main HOL; the theory loader path already includes this directory
wenzelm@10245
  1974
by default; the following existing theories have been moved here:
wenzelm@10245
  1975
HOL/Induct/Multiset, HOL/Induct/Acc (as Accessible_Part), HOL/While
wenzelm@10337
  1976
(as While_Combinator), HOL/Lex/Prefix (as List_Prefix);
wenzelm@10245
  1977
wenzelm@10966
  1978
* HOL/Unix: "Some aspects of Unix file-system security", a typical
wenzelm@10966
  1979
modelling and verification task performed in Isabelle/HOL +
wenzelm@10966
  1980
Isabelle/Isar + Isabelle document preparation (by Markus Wenzel).
wenzelm@10966
  1981
wenzelm@11094
  1982
* HOL/Algebra: special summation operator SUM no longer exists, it has
wenzelm@11094
  1983
been replaced by setsum; infix 'assoc' now has priority 50 (like
wenzelm@11094
  1984
'dvd'); axiom 'one_not_zero' has been moved from axclass 'ring' to
wenzelm@11094
  1985
'domain', this makes the theory consistent with mathematical
wenzelm@11094
  1986
literature;
wenzelm@11094
  1987
wenzelm@10514
  1988
* HOL basics: added overloaded operations "inverse" and "divide"
wenzelm@10726
  1989
(infix "/"), syntax for generic "abs" operation, generic summation
wenzelm@11094
  1990
operator \<Sum>;
wenzelm@10452
  1991
wenzelm@10391
  1992
* HOL/typedef: simplified package, provide more useful rules (see also
wenzelm@10391
  1993
HOL/subset.thy);
wenzelm@10391
  1994
wenzelm@10915
  1995
* HOL/datatype: induction rule for arbitrarily branching datatypes is
wenzelm@10915
  1996
now expressed as a proper nested rule (old-style tactic scripts may
wenzelm@10915
  1997
require atomize_strip_tac to cope with non-atomic premises);
wenzelm@10915
  1998
wenzelm@10915
  1999
* HOL: renamed theory "Prod" to "Product_Type", renamed "split" rule
wenzelm@10915
  2000
to "split_conv" (old name still available for compatibility);
wenzelm@10915
  2001
wenzelm@10915
  2002
* HOL: improved concrete syntax for strings (e.g. allows translation
wenzelm@10915
  2003
rules with string literals);
wenzelm@10915
  2004
paulson@12245
  2005
* HOL-Real-Hyperreal: this extends HOL-Real with the hyperreals
paulson@12245
  2006
 and Fleuriot's mechanization of analysis, including the transcendental
paulson@12245
  2007
 functions for the reals;
paulson@10756
  2008
wenzelm@11094
  2009
* HOL/Real, HOL/Hyperreal: improved arithmetic simplification;
wenzelm@10391
  2010
wenzelm@10858
  2011
paulson@10474
  2012
*** CTT ***
paulson@10474
  2013
wenzelm@10547
  2014
* CTT: x-symbol support for Pi, Sigma, -->, : (membership); note that
wenzelm@10547
  2015
"lam" is displayed as TWO lambda-symbols
paulson@10474
  2016
wenzelm@10547
  2017
* CTT: theory Main now available, containing everything (that is, Bool
wenzelm@10547
  2018
and Arith);
wenzelm@10547
  2019
paulson@10474

wenzelm@10391
  2021
*** General ***
wenzelm@10391
  2022
wenzelm@10547
  2023
* Pure: the Simplifier has been implemented properly as a derived rule
wenzelm@10547
  2024
outside of the actual kernel (at last!); the overall performance
wenzelm@10547
  2025
penalty in practical applications is about 50%, while reliability of
wenzelm@10547
  2026
the Isabelle inference kernel has been greatly improved;
wenzelm@10547
  2027
wenzelm@11112
  2028
* print modes "brackets" and "no_brackets" control output of nested =>
wenzelm@11112
  2029
(types) and ==> (props); the default behaviour is "brackets";
wenzelm@11112
  2030
wenzelm@10391
  2031
* Provers: fast_tac (and friends) now handle actual object-logic rules
wenzelm@10391
  2032
as assumptions as well;
wenzelm@10391
  2033
wenzelm@11124
  2034
* system: support Poly/ML 4.0;
wenzelm@11124
  2035
wenzelm@11124
  2036
* system: isatool install handles KDE version 1 or 2;
wenzelm@11124

wenzelm@10391
  2038
wenzelm@10245
  2039

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES ***
paulson@8014
  2044
wenzelm@8848
  2045
* HOL: simplification of natural numbers is much changed; to partly
wenzelm@8848
  2046
recover the old behaviour (e.g. to prevent n+n rewriting to #2*n)
wenzelm@8848
  2047
issue the following ML commands:
wenzelm@8848
  2048
wenzelm@8848
  2049
  Delsimprocs Nat_Numeral_Simprocs.cancel_numerals;
wenzelm@8848
  2050
  Delsimprocs [Nat_Numeral_Simprocs.combine_numerals];
paulson@8788
  2051
wenzelm@10129
  2052
* HOL: simplification no longer dives into case-expressions; this is
wenzelm@10129
  2053
controlled by "t.weak_case_cong" for each datatype t;
wenzelm@10003
  2054
wenzelm@10003
  2055
* HOL: nat_less_induct renamed to less_induct;
wenzelm@10003
  2056
wenzelm@10003
  2057
* HOL: systematic renaming of the SOME (Eps) rules, may use isatool
wenzelm@10003
  2058
fixsome to patch .thy and .ML sources automatically;
paulson@8967
  2059
wenzelm@10003
  2060
  select_equality  -> some_equality
wenzelm@10003
  2061
  select_eq_Ex     -> some_eq_ex
wenzelm@10003
  2062
  selectI2EX       -> someI2_ex
wenzelm@10003
  2063
  selectI2         -> someI2
wenzelm@10003
  2064
  selectI          -> someI
wenzelm@10003
  2065
  select1_equality -> some1_equality
wenzelm@10003
  2066
  Eps_sym_eq       -> some_sym_eq_trivial
wenzelm@10003
  2067
  Eps_eq           -> some_eq_trivial
wenzelm@10003
  2068
wenzelm@10003
  2069
* HOL: exhaust_tac on datatypes superceded by new generic case_tac;
wenzelm@10003
  2070
wenzelm@10003
  2071
* HOL: removed obsolete theorem binding expand_if (refer to split_if
wenzelm@10003
  2072
instead);
wenzelm@10003
  2073
wenzelm@10003
  2074
* HOL: the recursion equations generated by 'recdef' are now called
wenzelm@10003
  2075
f.simps instead of f.rules;
wenzelm@10003
  2076
wenzelm@10003
  2077
* HOL: qed_spec_mp now also handles bounded ALL as well;
wenzelm@10003
  2078
wenzelm@10003
  2079
* HOL: 0 is now overloaded, so the type constraint ":: nat" may
wenzelm@10003
  2080
sometimes be needed;
wenzelm@10003
  2081
wenzelm@10003
  2082
* HOL: the constant for "f``x" is now "image" rather than "op ``";
paulson@8014
  2083
paulson@10065
  2084
* HOL: the constant for "f-``x" is now "vimage" rather than "op -``";
paulson@10065
  2085
wenzelm@9330
  2086
* HOL: the disjoint sum is now "<+>" instead of "Plus"; the cartesian
wenzelm@9330
  2087
product is now "<*>" instead of "Times"; the lexicographic product is
wenzelm@9330
  2088
now "<*lex*>" instead of "**";
nipkow@8705
  2089
wenzelm@10003
  2090
* HOL: theory Sexp is now in HOL/Induct examples (it used to be part
wenzelm@10003
  2091
of main HOL, but was unused); better use HOL's datatype package;
paulson@9971
  2092
wenzelm@10137
  2093
* HOL: removed "symbols" syntax for constant "override" of theory Map;
wenzelm@10137
  2094
the old syntax may be recovered as follows:
wenzelm@10137
  2095
wenzelm@10137
  2096
  syntax (symbols)
wenzelm@10137
  2097
    override  :: "('a ~=> 'b) => ('a ~=> 'b) => ('a ~=> 'b)"
wenzelm@10137
  2098
      (infixl "\\<oplus>" 100)
wenzelm@10137
  2099
wenzelm@8848
  2100
* HOL/Real: "rabs" replaced by overloaded "abs" function;
wenzelm@8848
  2101
wenzelm@8887
  2102
* HOL/ML: even fewer consts are declared as global (see theories Ord,
wenzelm@8887
  2103
Lfp, Gfp, WF); this only affects ML packages that refer to const names
wenzelm@8887
  2104
internally;
wenzelm@8887
  2105
wenzelm@10003
  2106
* HOL and ZF: syntax for quotienting wrt an equivalence relation
wenzelm@10003
  2107
changed from A/r to A//r;
wenzelm@9908
  2108
wenzelm@10003
  2109
* ZF: new treatment of arithmetic (nat & int) may break some old
wenzelm@10003
  2110
proofs;
wenzelm@8921
  2111
wenzelm@10003
  2112
* Isar: renamed some attributes (RS -> THEN, simplify -> simplified,
wenzelm@10003
  2113
rulify -> rule_format, elimify -> elim_format, ...);
paulson@9542
  2114
wenzelm@9941
  2115
* Isar/Provers: intro/elim/dest attributes changed; renamed
wenzelm@9941
  2116
intro/intro!/intro!! flags to intro!/intro/intro? (in most cases, one
wenzelm@9937
  2117
should have to change intro!! to intro? only); replaced "delrule" by
wenzelm@9937
  2118
"rule del";
wenzelm@9437
  2119
wenzelm@9612
  2120
* Isar/HOL: renamed "intrs" to "intros" in inductive definitions;
wenzelm@9612
  2121
wenzelm@9437
  2122
* Provers: strengthened force_tac by using new first_best_tac;
oheimb@9402
  2123
wenzelm@10003
  2124
* LaTeX document preparation: several changes of isabelle.sty (see
wenzelm@10003
  2125
lib/texinputs);
wenzelm@8729

  2130
* formal comments (text blocks etc.) in new-style theories may now
wenzelm@9753
  2131
contain antiquotations of thm/prop/term/typ/text to be presented
wenzelm@9753
  2132
according to latex print mode; concrete syntax is like this:
wenzelm@9753
  2133
@{term[show_types] "f(x) = a + x"};
wenzelm@9198
  2134
wenzelm@8358
  2135
* isatool mkdir provides easy setup of Isabelle session directories,
wenzelm@8518
  2136
including proper document sources;
wenzelm@8358
  2137
wenzelm@8358
  2138
* generated LaTeX sources are now deleted after successful run
wenzelm@8358
  2139
(isatool document -c); may retain a copy somewhere else via -D option
wenzelm@8358
  2140
of isatool usedir;
wenzelm@8358
  2141
wenzelm@8566
  2142
* isatool usedir -D now lets isatool latex -o sty update the Isabelle
wenzelm@10003
  2143
style files, achieving self-contained LaTeX sources and simplifying
wenzelm@10003
  2144
LaTeX debugging;
wenzelm@8566
  2145
wenzelm@8518
  2146
* old-style theories now produce (crude) LaTeX output as well;
wenzelm@8358
  2147
wenzelm@9057
  2148
* browser info session directories are now self-contained (may be put
wenzelm@9437
  2149
on WWW server seperately); improved graphs of nested sessions; removed
wenzelm@9437
  2150
graph for 'all sessions';
wenzelm@9057
  2151
wenzelm@10003
  2152
* several improvements in isabelle style files; \isabellestyle{it}
wenzelm@10003
  2153
produces fake math mode output; \isamarkupheader is now \section by
wenzelm@10003

*** Isar ***
wenzelm@8184
  2158
wenzelm@10003
  2159
* Isar/Pure: local results and corresponding term bindings are now
wenzelm@10003
  2160
subject to Hindley-Milner polymorphism (similar to ML); this
wenzelm@10003
  2161
accommodates incremental type-inference very nicely;
wenzelm@8283
  2162
wenzelm@10003
  2163
* Isar/Pure: new derived language element 'obtain' supports
wenzelm@10003
  2164
generalized existence reasoning;
wenzelm@8621
  2165
wenzelm@10003
  2166
* Isar/Pure: new calculational elements 'moreover' and 'ultimately'
wenzelm@10003
  2167
support accumulation of results, without applying any rules yet;
wenzelm@10003
  2168
useful to collect intermediate results without explicit name
wenzelm@10003
  2169
references, and for use with transitivity rules with more than 2
wenzelm@10003
  2170
premises;
wenzelm@8184
  2171
wenzelm@10003
  2172
* Isar/Pure: scalable support for case-analysis type proofs: new
wenzelm@10003
  2173
'case' language element refers to local contexts symbolically, as
wenzelm@10003
  2174
produced by certain proof methods; internally, case names are attached
wenzelm@10003
  2175
to theorems as "tags";
wenzelm@8440
  2176
wenzelm@10003
  2177
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'hide' removes declarations from
wenzelm@9330
  2178
class/type/const name spaces;
wenzelm@9330
  2179
wenzelm@10003
  2180
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'defs' supports option "(overloaded)" to
wenzelm@9330
  2181
indicate potential overloading;
wenzelm@9330
  2182
wenzelm@10003
  2183
* Isar/Pure: changed syntax of local blocks from {{ }} to { };
wenzelm@8621
  2184
wenzelm@10003
  2185
* Isar/Pure: syntax of sorts made 'inner', i.e. have to write
wenzelm@10003
  2186
"{a,b,c}" instead of {a,b,c};
wenzelm@9011
  2187
wenzelm@10003
  2188
* Isar/Pure now provides its own version of intro/elim/dest
wenzelm@10003
  2189
attributes; useful for building new logics, but beware of confusion
wenzelm@10003
  2190
with the version in Provers/classical;
wenzelm@9612
  2191
wenzelm@10003
  2192
* Isar/Pure: the local context of (non-atomic) goals is provided via
wenzelm@10003
  2193
case name 'antecedent';
wenzelm@8440
  2194
wenzelm@10003
  2195
* Isar/Pure: removed obsolete 'transfer' attribute (transfer of thms
wenzelm@10003
  2196
to the current context is now done automatically);
wenzelm@9383
  2197
wenzelm@10003
  2198
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'method_setup' provides a simple interface
wenzelm@10003
  2199
for definining proof methods in ML;
wenzelm@9612
  2200
wenzelm@10003
  2201
* Isar/Provers: intro/elim/dest attributes changed; renamed
wenzelm@9941
  2202
intro/intro!/intro!! flags to intro!/intro/intro? (INCOMPATIBILITY, in
wenzelm@9941
  2203
most cases, one should have to change intro!! to intro? only);
wenzelm@9941
  2204
replaced "delrule" by "rule del";
wenzelm@8283
  2205
wenzelm@10003
  2206
* Isar/Provers: new 'hypsubst' method, plain 'subst' method and
wenzelm@10003
  2207
'symmetric' attribute (the latter supercedes [RS sym]);
wenzelm@10003
  2208
wenzelm@10003
  2209
* Isar/Provers: splitter support (via 'split' attribute and 'simp'
wenzelm@10003
  2210
method modifier); 'simp' method: 'only:' modifier removes loopers as
wenzelm@10003
  2211
well (including splits);
wenzelm@10003
  2212
wenzelm@10003
  2213
* Isar/Provers: Simplifier and Classical methods now support all kind
wenzelm@10003
  2214
of modifiers used in the past, including 'cong', 'iff', etc.
wenzelm@10003
  2215
wenzelm@10003
  2216
* Isar/Provers: added 'fastsimp' and 'clarsimp' methods (combination
wenzelm@10003
  2217
of Simplifier and Classical reasoner);
wenzelm@10003
  2218
wenzelm@10003
  2219
* Isar/HOL: new proof method 'cases' and improved version of 'induct'
wenzelm@10003
  2220
now support named cases; major packages (inductive, datatype, primrec,
wenzelm@10003
  2221
recdef) support case names and properly name parameters;
wenzelm@9612
  2222
wenzelm@10003
  2223
* Isar/HOL: new transitivity rules for substitution in inequalities --
wenzelm@10003
  2224
monotonicity conditions are extracted to be proven at end of
wenzelm@10003
  2225
calculations;
wenzelm@10003
  2226
wenzelm@10003
  2227
* Isar/HOL: removed 'case_split' thm binding, should use 'cases' proof
wenzelm@10003
  2228
method anyway;
wenzelm@10003
  2229
wenzelm@10003
  2230
* Isar/HOL: removed old expand_if = split_if; theorems if_splits =
wenzelm@10003
  2231
split_if split_if_asm; datatype package provides theorems foo.splits =
wenzelm@10003
  2232
foo.split foo.split_asm for each datatype;
wenzelm@10003
  2233
wenzelm@10003
  2234
* Isar/HOL: tuned inductive package, rename "intrs" to "intros"
wenzelm@10003
  2235
(potential INCOMPATIBILITY), emulation of mk_cases feature for proof
wenzelm@10003
  2236
scripts: new 'inductive_cases' command and 'ind_cases' method; (Note:
wenzelm@10003
  2237
use "(cases (simplified))" method in proper proof texts);
wenzelm@10003
  2238
wenzelm@10003
  2239
* Isar/HOL: added global 'arith_split' attribute for 'arith' method;
wenzelm@10003
  2240
wenzelm@10003
  2241
* Isar: names of theorems etc. may be natural numbers as well;
wenzelm@10003
  2242
wenzelm@10003
  2243
* Isar: 'pr' command: optional arguments for goals_limit and
wenzelm@9724
  2244
ProofContext.prems_limit; no longer prints theory contexts, but only
wenzelm@9724
  2245
proof states;
wenzelm@8487
  2246
wenzelm@10003
  2247
* Isar: diagnostic commands 'pr', 'thm', 'prop', 'term', 'typ' admit
wenzelm@8518
  2248
additional print modes to be specified; e.g. "pr(latex)" will print
wenzelm@8518
  2249
proof state according to the Isabelle LaTeX style;
wenzelm@8487
  2250
wenzelm@10003
  2251
* Isar: improved support for emulating tactic scripts, including proof
wenzelm@9612
  2252
methods 'rule_tac' etc., 'cut_tac', 'thin_tac', 'subgoal_tac',
wenzelm@9612
  2253
'rename_tac', 'rotate_tac', 'tactic', and 'case_tac' / 'induct_tac'
wenzelm@9612
  2254
(for HOL datatypes);
wenzelm@8534
  2255
wenzelm@10003
  2256
* Isar: simplified (more robust) goal selection of proof methods: 1st
wenzelm@10003
  2257
goal, all goals, or explicit goal specifier (tactic emulation); thus
wenzelm@10003
  2258
'proof method scripts' have to be in depth-first order;
wenzelm@8673
  2259
wenzelm@10003
  2260
* Isar: tuned 'let' syntax: replaced 'as' keyword by 'and';
wenzelm@8729
  2261
wenzelm@10003
  2262
* Isar: removed 'help' command, which hasn't been too helpful anyway;
wenzelm@10003
  2263
should instead use individual commands for printing items
wenzelm@10003
  2264
(print_commands, print_methods etc.);
wenzelm@9224
  2265
wenzelm@10003
  2266
* Isar: added 'nothing' --- the empty list of theorems;

recursive procedures, by David von Oheimb;
wenzelm@10164
  2297
wenzelm@10003
  2298
* HOL/Lambda: converted into new-style theory and document;
paulson@9542
  2299
wenzelm@10003
  2300
* HOL/ex/Multiquote: example of multiple nested quotations and
wenzelm@10003
  2301
anti-quotations -- basically a generalized version of de-Bruijn
wenzelm@10003
  2302
representation; very useful in avoiding lifting of operations;
wenzelm@8848
  2303
wenzelm@9612
  2304
* HOL/record: added general record equality rule to simpset; fixed
wenzelm@9612

  2308
* HOL: 0 is now overloaded over the new sort "zero", allowing its use with
paulson@8967
  2309
other numeric types and also as the identity of groups, rings, etc.;
paulson@8967
  2310
paulson@8967
  2311
* HOL: new axclass plus_ac0 for addition with the AC-laws and 0 as identity.
paulson@8967
  2312
Types nat and int belong to this axclass;
paulson@8967
  2313
wenzelm@10003
  2314
* HOL: greatly improved simplification involving numerals of type nat, int, real:
paulson@8788
  2315
   (i + #8 + j) = Suc k simplifies to  #7 + (i + j) = k
paulson@8832
  2316
   i*j + k + j*#3*i     simplifies to  #4*(i*j) + k
paulson@8832
  2317
  two terms #m*u and #n*u are replaced by #(m+n)*u
paulson@8832
  2318
    (where #m, #n and u can implicitly be 1; this is simproc combine_numerals)
paulson@8832
  2319
  and the term/formula #m*u+x ~~ #n*u+y simplifies simplifies to #(m-n)+x ~~ y
paulson@8832
  2320
    or x ~~ #(n-m)+y, where ~~ is one of = < <= or - (simproc cancel_numerals);
paulson@8736
  2321
wenzelm@10003
  2322
* HOL: meson_tac is available (previously in ex/meson.ML); it is a
wenzelm@10003
  2323
powerful prover for predicate logic but knows nothing of clasets; see
wenzelm@10003

ex/mesontest.ML and ex/mesontest2.ML for example applications;
paulson@9835
  2325
wenzelm@8848
  2326
* HOL: new version of "case_tac" subsumes both boolean case split and
wenzelm@8440
  2327
"exhaust_tac" on datatypes; INCOMPATIBILITY: exhaust_tac no longer
wenzelm@8518

exists, may define val exhaust_tac = case_tac for ad-hoc portability;
wenzelm@8440
  2329
wenzelm@8848
  2330
* HOL: simplification no longer dives into case-expressions: only the
wenzelm@10129
  2331
selector expression is simplified, but not the remaining arms; to
wenzelm@10129
  2332
enable full simplification of case-expressions for datatype t, you may
wenzelm@10129
  2333
remove t.weak_case_cong from the simpset, either globally (Delcongs
wenzelm@10129

[thm"t.weak_case_cong"];) or locally (delcongs [...]).
nipkow@8603

wenzelm@8848
  2336
* HOL/recdef: the recursion equations generated by 'recdef' for
wenzelm@8848
  2337
function 'f' are now called f.simps instead of f.rules; if all
wenzelm@8848
  2338
termination conditions are proved automatically, these simplification
wenzelm@8848
  2339
rules are added to the simpset, as in primrec; rules may be named
wenzelm@8848
  2340
individually as well, resulting in a separate list of theorems for
wenzelm@8848
  2341
each equation;
wenzelm@8848
  2342
wenzelm@9489
  2343
* HOL/While is a new theory that provides a while-combinator. It
wenzelm@9489
  2344
permits the definition of tail-recursive functions without the
wenzelm@9489
  2345
provision of a termination measure. The latter is necessary once the
wenzelm@9489
  2346
invariant proof rule for while is applied.
nipkow@9457
  2347
wenzelm@10003
  2348

* HOL: new tactic induct_thm_tac: thm -> string -> int -> tactic
nipkow@9746
  2354
induct_tac th "x1 ... xn" expects th to have a conclusion of the form
nipkow@9746

  2360
main HOL, but was unused);
nipkow@8626
  2361
wenzelm@10003
  2362
* HOL: fewer consts declared as global (e.g. have to refer to
wenzelm@10003

"Lfp.lfp" instead of "lfp" internally; affects ML packages only);
wenzelm@8887
  2364
wenzelm@10003
  2365
* HOL: tuned AST representation of nested pairs, avoiding bogus output
wenzelm@10003
  2366
in case of overlap with user translations (e.g. judgements over

expressions over nat and int;
paulson@9542
  2375
wenzelm@10003
  2376
* ZF: new treatment of nat to minimize type-checking: all operators
wenzelm@10003
  2377
coerce their operands to a natural number using the function natify,
wenzelm@10003
  2378
making the algebraic laws unconditional;
paulson@9542

* Provers: delrules now handles destruct rules as well (no longer need
wenzelm@9941
  2402
explicit make_elim);
wenzelm@9941
  2403
wenzelm@10003
  2404
* Provers: Blast_tac now warns of and ignores "weak elimination rules" e.g.
wenzelm@10003
  2405
  [| inj ?f;          ?f ?x = ?f ?y; ?x = ?y ==> ?W |] ==> ?W
wenzelm@10003
  2406
use instead the strong form,
wenzelm@10003
  2407
  [| inj ?f; ~ ?W ==> ?f ?x = ?f ?y; ?x = ?y ==> ?W |] ==> ?W
wenzelm@10003
  2408
in HOL, FOL and ZF the function cla_make_elim will create such rules
wenzelm@10003
  2409
from destruct-rules;
wenzelm@9489
  2410
wenzelm@9709
  2411
* Provers: Simplifier.easy_setup provides a fast path to basic
wenzelm@9709
  2412
Simplifier setup for new object-logics;
wenzelm@9709
  2413
wenzelm@9709
  2414
* Pure: AST translation rules no longer require constant head on LHS;
wenzelm@9349
  2415
wenzelm@9709
  2416
* Pure: improved name spaces: ambiguous output is qualified; support
wenzelm@9709
  2417
for hiding of names;
wenzelm@8729
  2418
wenzelm@10003
  2419
* system: smart setup of canonical ML_HOME, ISABELLE_INTERFACE, and
wenzelm@10003
  2420
XSYMBOL_HOME; no longer need to do manual configuration in most
wenzelm@10003
  2421
situations;
wenzelm@10003
  2422
wenzelm@9709
  2423
* system: compression of ML heaps images may now be controlled via -c
wenzelm@9709
  2424
option of isabelle and isatool usedir (currently only observed by
wenzelm@9709
  2425
Poly/ML);
wenzelm@8358
  2426
wenzelm@9981
  2427
* system: isatool installfonts may handle X-Symbol fonts as well (very
wenzelm@9981
  2428
useful for remote X11);
wenzelm@9981
  2429
wenzelm@9709
  2430
* system: provide TAGS file for Isabelle sources;
wenzelm@9052
  2431
wenzelm@9288
  2432
* ML: infix 'OF' is a version of 'MRS' with more appropriate argument
wenzelm@9288
  2433
order;
wenzelm@9288
  2434
wenzelm@8994
  2435
* ML: renamed flags Syntax.trace_norm_ast to Syntax.trace_ast; global
wenzelm@8994
  2436
timing flag supersedes proof_timing and Toplevel.trace;
wenzelm@8994
  2437
wenzelm@10003
  2438
* ML: new combinators |>> and |>>> for incremental transformations
wenzelm@10003
  2439
with secondary results (e.g. certain theory extensions):
wenzelm@10003
  2440
wenzelm@9330
  2441
* ML: PureThy.add_defs gets additional argument to indicate potential
wenzelm@9330
  2442
overloading (usually false);
wenzelm@9330
  2443
wenzelm@10003
  2444
* ML: PureThy.add_thms/add_axioms/add_defs now return theorems as
wenzelm@10003
  2445
results;
wenzelm@8440
  2446
wenzelm@8358

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES (see below for more details) ***
paulson@5931
  2453
paulson@6922
  2454
* HOL: The THEN and ELSE parts of conditional expressions (if P then x else y)
paulson@6922
  2455
are no longer simplified.  (This allows the simplifier to unfold recursive
paulson@6922
  2456
functional programs.)  To restore the old behaviour, declare
wenzelm@7215
  2457
wenzelm@7215
  2458
    Delcongs [if_weak_cong];
paulson@6922
  2459
wenzelm@6269
  2460
* HOL: Removed the obsolete syntax "Compl A"; use -A for set
wenzelm@6269
  2461
complement;
paulson@5931
  2462
wenzelm@6269
  2463
* HOL: the predicate "inj" is now defined by translation to "inj_on";
paulson@6174
  2464
berghofe@7847
  2465
* HOL/datatype: mutual_induct_tac no longer exists --
berghofe@7847
  2466
  use induct_tac "x_1 ... x_n" instead of mutual_induct_tac ["x_1", ..., "x_n"]
berghofe@7847
  2467
wenzelm@6386
  2468
* HOL/typedef: fixed type inference for representing set; type
wenzelm@6386
  2469
arguments now have to occur explicitly on the rhs as type constraints;
wenzelm@6386
  2470
wenzelm@6269
  2471
* ZF: The con_defs part of an inductive definition may no longer refer
wenzelm@6269
  2472
to constants declared in the same theory;
nipkow@6057
  2473
wenzelm@6269
  2474
* HOL, ZF: the function mk_cases, generated by the inductive
wenzelm@6269
  2475
definition package, has lost an argument.  To simplify its result, it
wenzelm@6269
  2476
uses the default simpset instead of a supplied list of theorems.
paulson@6141
  2477
wenzelm@7215
  2478
* HOL/List: the constructors of type list are now Nil and Cons;
wenzelm@7215
  2479
nipkow@7619
  2480
* Simplifier: the type of the infix ML functions
wenzelm@8729
  2481
        setSSolver addSSolver setSolver addSolver
nipkow@7619
  2482
is now  simpset * solver -> simpset  where `solver' is a new abstract type
nipkow@7619
  2483
for packaging solvers. A solver is created via
wenzelm@8729
  2484
        mk_solver: string -> (thm list -> int -> tactic) -> solver
nipkow@7619
  2485
where the string argument is only a comment.

*** Proof tools ***
paulson@6069
  2489
wenzelm@6343
  2490
* Provers/Arith/fast_lin_arith.ML contains a functor for creating a
wenzelm@6343
  2491
decision procedure for linear arithmetic. Currently it is used for
wenzelm@7593
  2492
types `nat', `int', and `real' in HOL (see below); it can, should and
wenzelm@7593
  2493
will be instantiated for other types and logics as well.
paulson@6069
  2494
nipkow@7324
  2495
* The simplifier now accepts rewrite rules with flexible heads, eg
nipkow@7324
  2496
     hom ?f ==> ?f(?x+?y) = ?f ?x + ?f ?y
nipkow@7324
  2497
  They are applied like any rule with a non-pattern lhs, i.e. by first-order
nipkow@7324
  2498
  matching.

*** General ***
paulson@6014
  2502
wenzelm@7986
  2503
* New Isabelle/Isar subsystem provides an alternative to traditional
wenzelm@7215
  2504
tactical theorem proving; together with the ProofGeneral/isar user
wenzelm@7215
  2505
interface it offers an interactive environment for developing human
wenzelm@7215
  2506
readable proof documents (Isar == Intelligible semi-automated
wenzelm@7886
  2507
reasoning); for further information see isatool doc isar-ref,
wenzelm@7986
  2508
src/HOL/Isar_examples and http://isabelle.in.tum.de/Isar/
wenzelm@7886
  2509
wenzelm@9612
  2510
* improved and simplified presentation of theories: better HTML markup
wenzelm@9612
  2511
(including colors), graph views in several sizes; isatool usedir now
wenzelm@9612
  2512
provides a proper interface for user theories (via -P option); actual
wenzelm@9612
  2513
document preparation based on (PDF)LaTeX is available as well (for
wenzelm@9612
  2514
new-style theories only); see isatool doc system for more information;
wenzelm@7215
  2515
wenzelm@7252
  2516
* native support for Proof General, both for classic Isabelle and
wenzelm@7986
  2517
Isabelle/Isar;
wenzelm@7215
  2518
wenzelm@7791
  2519
* ML function thm_deps visualizes dependencies of theorems and lemmas,
wenzelm@7791
  2520
using the graph browser tool;
wenzelm@7791
  2521
wenzelm@6751
  2522
* Isabelle manuals now also available as PDF;
wenzelm@6751
  2523
wenzelm@6449
  2524
* theory loader rewritten from scratch (may not be fully
wenzelm@6449
  2525
bug-compatible); old loadpath variable has been replaced by show_path,
