wenzelm@8848
    31
* HOL: simplification of natural numbers is much changed; to partly
wenzelm@8848
    32
recover the old behaviour (e.g. to prevent n+n rewriting to #2*n)
wenzelm@8848
    33
issue the following ML commands:
wenzelm@8848
    34
wenzelm@8848
    35
  Delsimprocs Nat_Numeral_Simprocs.cancel_numerals;
wenzelm@8848
    36
  Delsimprocs [Nat_Numeral_Simprocs.combine_numerals];
paulson@8788
    37
wenzelm@10129
    38
* HOL: simplification no longer dives into case-expressions; this is
wenzelm@10129
    39
controlled by "t.weak_case_cong" for each datatype t;
wenzelm@10003
    40
wenzelm@10003
    41
* HOL: nat_less_induct renamed to less_induct;
wenzelm@10003
    42
wenzelm@10003
    43
* HOL: systematic renaming of the SOME (Eps) rules, may use isatool
wenzelm@10003
    44
fixsome to patch .thy and .ML sources automatically;
paulson@8967
    45
wenzelm@10003
    46
  select_equality  -> some_equality
wenzelm@10003
    47
  select_eq_Ex     -> some_eq_ex
wenzelm@10003
    48
  selectI2EX       -> someI2_ex
wenzelm@10003
    49
  selectI2         -> someI2
wenzelm@10003
    50
  selectI          -> someI
wenzelm@10003
    51
  select1_equality -> some1_equality
wenzelm@10003
    52
  Eps_sym_eq       -> some_sym_eq_trivial
wenzelm@10003
    53
  Eps_eq           -> some_eq_trivial
wenzelm@10003
    54
wenzelm@10003
    55
* HOL: exhaust_tac on datatypes superceded by new generic case_tac;
wenzelm@10003
    56
wenzelm@10003
    57
* HOL: removed obsolete theorem binding expand_if (refer to split_if
wenzelm@10003
    58
instead);
wenzelm@10003
    59
wenzelm@10003
    60
* HOL: the recursion equations generated by 'recdef' are now called
wenzelm@10003
    61
f.simps instead of f.rules;
wenzelm@10003
    62
wenzelm@10003
    63
* HOL: qed_spec_mp now also handles bounded ALL as well;
wenzelm@10003
    64
wenzelm@10003
    65
* HOL: 0 is now overloaded, so the type constraint ":: nat" may
wenzelm@10003
    66
sometimes be needed;
wenzelm@10003
    67
wenzelm@10003
    68
* HOL: the constant for "f``x" is now "image" rather than "op ``";
paulson@8014
    69
paulson@10065
    70
* HOL: the constant for "f-``x" is now "vimage" rather than "op -``";
paulson@10065
    71
wenzelm@9330
    72
* HOL: the disjoint sum is now "<+>" instead of "Plus"; the cartesian
wenzelm@9330
    73
product is now "<*>" instead of "Times"; the lexicographic product is
wenzelm@9330
    74
now "<*lex*>" instead of "**";
nipkow@8705
    75
wenzelm@10003
    76
* HOL: theory Sexp is now in HOL/Induct examples (it used to be part
wenzelm@10003
    77
of main HOL, but was unused); better use HOL's datatype package;
paulson@9971
    78
wenzelm@10137
    79
* HOL: removed "symbols" syntax for constant "override" of theory Map;
wenzelm@10137
    80
the old syntax may be recovered as follows:
wenzelm@10137
    81
wenzelm@10137
    82
  syntax (symbols)
wenzelm@10137
    83
    override  :: "('a ~=> 'b) => ('a ~=> 'b) => ('a ~=> 'b)"
wenzelm@10137
    84
      (infixl "\\<oplus>" 100)
wenzelm@10137
    85
wenzelm@8848
    86
* HOL/Real: "rabs" replaced by overloaded "abs" function;
wenzelm@8848
    87
wenzelm@8887
    88
* HOL/ML: even fewer consts are declared as global (see theories Ord,
wenzelm@8887
    89
Lfp, Gfp, WF); this only affects ML packages that refer to const names
wenzelm@8887
    90
internally;
wenzelm@8887
    91
wenzelm@10003
    92
* HOL and ZF: syntax for quotienting wrt an equivalence relation
wenzelm@10003
    93
changed from A/r to A//r;
wenzelm@9908
    94
wenzelm@10003
    95
* ZF: new treatment of arithmetic (nat & int) may break some old
wenzelm@10003
    96
proofs;
wenzelm@8921
    97
wenzelm@10003
    98
* Isar: renamed some attributes (RS -> THEN, simplify -> simplified,
wenzelm@10003
    99
rulify -> rule_format, elimify -> elim_format, ...);
paulson@9542
   100
wenzelm@9941
   101
* Isar/Provers: intro/elim/dest attributes changed; renamed
wenzelm@9941
   102
intro/intro!/intro!! flags to intro!/intro/intro? (in most cases, one
wenzelm@9937
   103
should have to change intro!! to intro? only); replaced "delrule" by
wenzelm@9937
   104
"rule del";
wenzelm@9437
   105
wenzelm@9612
   106
* Isar/HOL: renamed "intrs" to "intros" in inductive definitions;
wenzelm@9612
   107
wenzelm@9437
   108
* Provers: strengthened force_tac by using new first_best_tac;
oheimb@9402
   109
wenzelm@10003
   110
* LaTeX document preparation: several changes of isabelle.sty (see
wenzelm@10003
   111
lib/texinputs);
wenzelm@8729
   112
paulson@8014
   113
wenzelm@8487
   114
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@8358
   115
wenzelm@9198
   116
* formal comments (text blocks etc.) in new-style theories may now
wenzelm@9753
   117
contain antiquotations of thm/prop/term/typ/text to be presented
wenzelm@9753
   118
according to latex print mode; concrete syntax is like this:
wenzelm@9753
   119
@{term[show_types] "f(x) = a + x"};
wenzelm@9198
   120
wenzelm@8358
   121
* isatool mkdir provides easy setup of Isabelle session directories,
wenzelm@8518
   122
including proper document sources;
wenzelm@8358
   123
wenzelm@8358
   124
* generated LaTeX sources are now deleted after successful run
wenzelm@8358
   125
(isatool document -c); may retain a copy somewhere else via -D option
wenzelm@8358
   126
of isatool usedir;
wenzelm@8358
   127
wenzelm@8566
   128
* isatool usedir -D now lets isatool latex -o sty update the Isabelle
wenzelm@10003
   129
style files, achieving self-contained LaTeX sources and simplifying
wenzelm@10003
   130
LaTeX debugging;
wenzelm@8566
   131
wenzelm@8518
   132
* old-style theories now produce (crude) LaTeX output as well;
wenzelm@8358
   133
wenzelm@9057
   134
* browser info session directories are now self-contained (may be put
wenzelm@9437
   135
on WWW server seperately); improved graphs of nested sessions; removed
wenzelm@9437
   136
graph for 'all sessions';
wenzelm@9057
   137
wenzelm@10003
   138
* several improvements in isabelle style files; \isabellestyle{it}
wenzelm@10003
   139
produces fake math mode output; \isamarkupheader is now \section by
wenzelm@10003
   140
default; see lib/texinputs/isabelle.sty etc.;
wenzelm@9489
   141
wenzelm@8358
   142
wenzelm@8184
   143
*** Isar ***
wenzelm@8184
   144
wenzelm@10003
   145
* Isar/Pure: local results and corresponding term bindings are now
wenzelm@10003
   146
subject to Hindley-Milner polymorphism (similar to ML); this
wenzelm@10003
   147
accommodates incremental type-inference very nicely;
wenzelm@8283
   148
wenzelm@10003
   149
* Isar/Pure: new derived language element 'obtain' supports
wenzelm@10003
   150
generalized existence reasoning;
wenzelm@8621
   151
wenzelm@10003
   152
* Isar/Pure: new calculational elements 'moreover' and 'ultimately'
wenzelm@10003
   153
support accumulation of results, without applying any rules yet;
wenzelm@10003
   154
useful to collect intermediate results without explicit name
wenzelm@10003
   155
references, and for use with transitivity rules with more than 2
wenzelm@10003
   156
premises;
wenzelm@8184
   157
wenzelm@10003
   158
* Isar/Pure: scalable support for case-analysis type proofs: new
wenzelm@10003
   159
'case' language element refers to local contexts symbolically, as
wenzelm@10003
   160
produced by certain proof methods; internally, case names are attached
wenzelm@10003
   161
to theorems as "tags";
wenzelm@8440
   162
wenzelm@10003
   163
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'hide' removes declarations from
wenzelm@9330
   164
class/type/const name spaces;
wenzelm@9330
   165
wenzelm@10003
   166
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'defs' supports option "(overloaded)" to
wenzelm@9330
   167
indicate potential overloading;
wenzelm@9330
   168
wenzelm@10003
   169
* Isar/Pure: changed syntax of local blocks from {{ }} to { };
wenzelm@8621
   170
wenzelm@10003
   171
* Isar/Pure: syntax of sorts made 'inner', i.e. have to write
wenzelm@10003
   172
"{a,b,c}" instead of {a,b,c};
wenzelm@9011
   173
wenzelm@10003
   174
* Isar/Pure now provides its own version of intro/elim/dest
wenzelm@10003
   175
attributes; useful for building new logics, but beware of confusion
wenzelm@10003
   176
with the version in Provers/classical;
wenzelm@9612
   177
wenzelm@10003
   178
* Isar/Pure: the local context of (non-atomic) goals is provided via
wenzelm@10003
   179
case name 'antecedent';
wenzelm@8440
   180
wenzelm@10003
   181
* Isar/Pure: removed obsolete 'transfer' attribute (transfer of thms
wenzelm@10003
   182
to the current context is now done automatically);
wenzelm@9383
   183
wenzelm@10003
   184
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'method_setup' provides a simple interface
wenzelm@10003
   185
for definining proof methods in ML;
wenzelm@9612
   186
wenzelm@10003
   187
* Isar/Provers: intro/elim/dest attributes changed; renamed
wenzelm@9941
   188
intro/intro!/intro!! flags to intro!/intro/intro? (INCOMPATIBILITY, in
wenzelm@9941
   189
most cases, one should have to change intro!! to intro? only);
wenzelm@9941
   190
replaced "delrule" by "rule del";
wenzelm@8283
   191
wenzelm@10003
   192
* Isar/Provers: new 'hypsubst' method, plain 'subst' method and
wenzelm@10003
   193
'symmetric' attribute (the latter supercedes [RS sym]);
wenzelm@10003
   194
wenzelm@10003
   195
* Isar/Provers: splitter support (via 'split' attribute and 'simp'
wenzelm@10003
   196
method modifier); 'simp' method: 'only:' modifier removes loopers as
wenzelm@10003
   197
well (including splits);
wenzelm@10003
   198
wenzelm@10003
   199
* Isar/Provers: Simplifier and Classical methods now support all kind
wenzelm@10003
   200
of modifiers used in the past, including 'cong', 'iff', etc.
wenzelm@10003
   201
wenzelm@10003
   202
* Isar/Provers: added 'fastsimp' and 'clarsimp' methods (combination
wenzelm@10003
   203
of Simplifier and Classical reasoner);
wenzelm@10003
   204
wenzelm@10003
   205
* Isar/HOL: new proof method 'cases' and improved version of 'induct'
wenzelm@10003
   206
now support named cases; major packages (inductive, datatype, primrec,
wenzelm@10003
   207
recdef) support case names and properly name parameters;
wenzelm@9612
   208
wenzelm@10003
   209
* Isar/HOL: new transitivity rules for substitution in inequalities --
wenzelm@10003
   210
monotonicity conditions are extracted to be proven at end of
wenzelm@10003
   211
calculations;
wenzelm@10003
   212
wenzelm@10003
   213
* Isar/HOL: removed 'case_split' thm binding, should use 'cases' proof
wenzelm@10003
   214
method anyway;
wenzelm@10003
   215
wenzelm@10003
   216
* Isar/HOL: removed old expand_if = split_if; theorems if_splits =
wenzelm@10003
   217
split_if split_if_asm; datatype package provides theorems foo.splits =
wenzelm@10003
   218
foo.split foo.split_asm for each datatype;
wenzelm@10003
   219
wenzelm@10003
   220
* Isar/HOL: tuned inductive package, rename "intrs" to "intros"
wenzelm@10003
   221
(potential INCOMPATIBILITY), emulation of mk_cases feature for proof
wenzelm@10003
   222
scripts: new 'inductive_cases' command and 'ind_cases' method; (Note:
wenzelm@10003
   223
use "(cases (simplified))" method in proper proof texts);
wenzelm@10003
   224
wenzelm@10003
   225
* Isar/HOL: added global 'arith_split' attribute for 'arith' method;
wenzelm@10003
   226
wenzelm@10003
   227
* Isar: names of theorems etc. may be natural numbers as well;
wenzelm@10003
   228
wenzelm@10003
   229
* Isar: 'pr' command: optional arguments for goals_limit and
wenzelm@9724
   230
ProofContext.prems_limit; no longer prints theory contexts, but only
wenzelm@9724
   231
proof states;
wenzelm@8487
   232
wenzelm@10003
   233
* Isar: diagnostic commands 'pr', 'thm', 'prop', 'term', 'typ' admit
wenzelm@8518
   234
additional print modes to be specified; e.g. "pr(latex)" will print
wenzelm@8518
   235
proof state according to the Isabelle LaTeX style;
wenzelm@8487
   236
wenzelm@10003
   237
* Isar: improved support for emulating tactic scripts, including proof
wenzelm@9612
   238
methods 'rule_tac' etc., 'cut_tac', 'thin_tac', 'subgoal_tac',
wenzelm@9612
   239
'rename_tac', 'rotate_tac', 'tactic', and 'case_tac' / 'induct_tac'
wenzelm@9612
   240
(for HOL datatypes);
wenzelm@8534
   241
wenzelm@10003
   242
* Isar: simplified (more robust) goal selection of proof methods: 1st
wenzelm@10003
   243
goal, all goals, or explicit goal specifier (tactic emulation); thus
wenzelm@10003
   244
'proof method scripts' have to be in depth-first order;
wenzelm@8673
   245
wenzelm@10003
   246
* Isar: tuned 'let' syntax: replaced 'as' keyword by 'and';
wenzelm@8729
   247
wenzelm@10003
   248
* Isar: removed 'help' command, which hasn't been too helpful anyway;
wenzelm@10003
   249
should instead use individual commands for printing items
wenzelm@10003
   250
(print_commands, print_methods etc.);
wenzelm@9224
   251
wenzelm@10003
   252
* Isar: added 'nothing' --- the empty list of theorems;

*** HOL ***
paulson@8014
   256
wenzelm@10080
   257
* HOL/MicroJava: formalization of a fragment of Java, together with a
wenzelm@10080
   258
corresponding virtual machine and a specification of its bytecode
wenzelm@10080
   259
verifier and a lightweight bytecode verifier, including proofs of
wenzelm@10080
   260
type-safety; by Gerwin Klein, Tobias Nipkow, David von Oheimb, and
wenzelm@10080
   261
Cornelia Pusch (see also the homepage of project Bali at

* HOL/NumberTheory: fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic, Chinese
wenzelm@10003
   268
Remainder Theorem, Fermat/Euler Theorem, Wilson's Theorem, by Thomas M
wenzelm@10003
   269

wenzelm@10157
   271
* HOL/Lattice: fundamental concepts of lattice theory and order
wenzelm@10157
   272
structures, including duals, properties of bounds versus algebraic
wenzelm@10157
   273
laws, lattice operations versus set-theoretic ones, the Knaster-Tarski
wenzelm@10157

paulson@9542
   280

* HOL/IMPP: extension of IMP with local variables and mutually
wenzelm@10164
   282
recursive procedures, by David von Oheimb;
wenzelm@10164
   283
wenzelm@10003
   284
* HOL/Lambda: converted into new-style theory and document;
paulson@9542
   285
wenzelm@10003
   286
* HOL/ex/Multiquote: example of multiple nested quotations and
wenzelm@10003
   287
anti-quotations -- basically a generalized version of de-Bruijn
wenzelm@10003
   288
representation; very useful in avoiding lifting of operations;
wenzelm@8848
   289
wenzelm@9612
   290
* HOL/record: added general record equality rule to simpset; fixed
wenzelm@9612
   291
select-update simplification procedure to handle extended records as
wenzelm@9612
   292
well; admit "r" as field name;
paulson@9542
   293
paulson@8967
   294
* HOL: 0 is now overloaded over the new sort "zero", allowing its use with
paulson@8967
   295
other numeric types and also as the identity of groups, rings, etc.;
paulson@8967
   296
paulson@8967
   297
* HOL: new axclass plus_ac0 for addition with the AC-laws and 0 as identity.
paulson@8967
   298
Types nat and int belong to this axclass;
paulson@8967
   299
wenzelm@10003
   300
* HOL: greatly improved simplification involving numerals of type nat, int, real:
paulson@8788
   301
   (i + #8 + j) = Suc k simplifies to  #7 + (i + j) = k
paulson@8832
   302
   i*j + k + j*#3*i     simplifies to  #4*(i*j) + k
paulson@8832
   303
  two terms #m*u and #n*u are replaced by #(m+n)*u
paulson@8832
   304
    (where #m, #n and u can implicitly be 1; this is simproc combine_numerals)
paulson@8832
   305
  and the term/formula #m*u+x ~~ #n*u+y simplifies simplifies to #(m-n)+x ~~ y
paulson@8832
   306
    or x ~~ #(n-m)+y, where ~~ is one of = < <= or - (simproc cancel_numerals);
paulson@8736
   307
wenzelm@10003
   308
* HOL: meson_tac is available (previously in ex/meson.ML); it is a
wenzelm@10003
   309
powerful prover for predicate logic but knows nothing of clasets; see
wenzelm@10003
   310
ex/mesontest.ML and ex/mesontest2.ML for example applications;
paulson@9835
   311
wenzelm@8848
   312
* HOL: new version of "case_tac" subsumes both boolean case split and
wenzelm@8440
   313
"exhaust_tac" on datatypes; INCOMPATIBILITY: exhaust_tac no longer
wenzelm@8518
   314
exists, may define val exhaust_tac = case_tac for ad-hoc portability;
wenzelm@8440
   315
wenzelm@8848
   316
* HOL: simplification no longer dives into case-expressions: only the
wenzelm@10129
   317
selector expression is simplified, but not the remaining arms; to
wenzelm@10129
   318
enable full simplification of case-expressions for datatype t, you may
wenzelm@10129
   319
remove t.weak_case_cong from the simpset, either globally (Delcongs
wenzelm@10129
   320
[thm"t.weak_case_cong"];) or locally (delcongs [...]).
nipkow@8603
   321
wenzelm@8848
   322
* HOL/recdef: the recursion equations generated by 'recdef' for
wenzelm@8848
   323
function 'f' are now called f.simps instead of f.rules; if all
wenzelm@8848
   324
termination conditions are proved automatically, these simplification
wenzelm@8848
   325
rules are added to the simpset, as in primrec; rules may be named
wenzelm@8848
   326
individually as well, resulting in a separate list of theorems for
wenzelm@8848
   327
each equation;
wenzelm@8848
   328
wenzelm@9489
   329
* HOL/While is a new theory that provides a while-combinator. It
wenzelm@9489
   330
permits the definition of tail-recursive functions without the
wenzelm@9489
   331
provision of a termination measure. The latter is necessary once the
wenzelm@9489
   332
invariant proof rule for while is applied.
nipkow@9457
   333
wenzelm@10003
   334
* HOL: new (overloaded) notation for the set of elements below/above
wenzelm@10003
   335
some element: {..u}, {..u(}, {l..}, {)l..}. See theory SetInterval.
nipkow@8925
   336
wenzelm@8848
   337
* HOL: theorems impI, allI, ballI bound as "strip";
wenzelm@8848
   338
wenzelm@10003
   339
* HOL: new tactic induct_thm_tac: thm -> string -> int -> tactic
nipkow@9746
   340
induct_tac th "x1 ... xn" expects th to have a conclusion of the form
nipkow@9746
   341
P v1 ... vn and abbreviates res_inst_tac [("v1","x1"),...,("vn","xn")] th;
nipkow@9746
   342
wenzelm@10003
   343
* HOL/Real: "rabs" replaced by overloaded "abs" function;
nipkow@9737
   344
wenzelm@10003
   345
* HOL: theory Sexp now in HOL/Induct examples (it used to be part of
wenzelm@10003
   346
main HOL, but was unused);
nipkow@8626
   347
wenzelm@10003
   348
* HOL: fewer consts declared as global (e.g. have to refer to
wenzelm@10003
   349
"Lfp.lfp" instead of "lfp" internally; affects ML packages only);
wenzelm@8887
   350
wenzelm@10003
   351
* HOL: tuned AST representation of nested pairs, avoiding bogus output
wenzelm@10003
   352
in case of overlap with user translations (e.g. judgements over
wenzelm@10003
   353
tuples); (note that the underlying logical represenation is still
wenzelm@10003
   354
bogus);

*** ZF ***
paulson@9542
   358
wenzelm@10003
   359
* ZF: simplification automatically cancels common terms in arithmetic
wenzelm@10003
   360
expressions over nat and int;
paulson@9542
   361
wenzelm@10003
   362
* ZF: new treatment of nat to minimize type-checking: all operators
wenzelm@10003
   363
coerce their operands to a natural number using the function natify,
wenzelm@10003
   364
making the algebraic laws unconditional;
paulson@9542
   365
wenzelm@10003
   366
* ZF: as above, for int: operators coerce their operands to an integer
wenzelm@10003
   367
using the function intify;
paulson@9542
   368
wenzelm@10003
   369
* ZF: the integer library now contains many of the usual laws for the
wenzelm@10003
   370
orderings, including $<=, and monotonicity laws for $+ and $*;
paulson@9542
   371
wenzelm@10003
   372
* ZF: new example ZF/ex/NatSum to demonstrate integer arithmetic
wenzelm@10003
   373
simplification;
paulson@9388
   374
wenzelm@10003
   375
* FOL and ZF: AddIffs now available, giving theorems of the form P<->Q
wenzelm@10003
   376
to the simplifier and classical reasoner simultaneously;

*** General ***
wenzelm@8358
   380
wenzelm@10003
   381
* Provers: blast_tac now handles actual object-logic rules as
wenzelm@10003
   382
assumptions; note that auto_tac uses blast_tac internally as well;
wenzelm@10003
   383
wenzelm@10003
   384
* Provers: new functions rulify/rulify_no_asm: thm -> thm for turning
wenzelm@10003
   385
outer -->/All/Ball into ==>/!!; qed_spec_mp now uses rulify_no_asm;
wenzelm@10003
   386
wenzelm@9941
   387
* Provers: delrules now handles destruct rules as well (no longer need
wenzelm@9941
   388
explicit make_elim);
wenzelm@9941
   389
wenzelm@10003
   390
* Provers: Blast_tac now warns of and ignores "weak elimination rules" e.g.
wenzelm@10003
   391
  [| inj ?f;          ?f ?x = ?f ?y; ?x = ?y ==> ?W |] ==> ?W
wenzelm@10003
   392
use instead the strong form,
wenzelm@10003
   393
  [| inj ?f; ~ ?W ==> ?f ?x = ?f ?y; ?x = ?y ==> ?W |] ==> ?W
wenzelm@10003
   394
in HOL, FOL and ZF the function cla_make_elim will create such rules
wenzelm@10003
   395
from destruct-rules;
wenzelm@9489
   396
wenzelm@9709
   397
* Provers: Simplifier.easy_setup provides a fast path to basic
wenzelm@9709
   398
Simplifier setup for new object-logics;
wenzelm@9709
   399
wenzelm@9709
   400
* Pure: AST translation rules no longer require constant head on LHS;
wenzelm@9349
   401
wenzelm@9709
   402
* Pure: improved name spaces: ambiguous output is qualified; support
wenzelm@9709
   403
for hiding of names;
wenzelm@8729
   404
wenzelm@10003
   405
* system: smart setup of canonical ML_HOME, ISABELLE_INTERFACE, and
wenzelm@10003
   406
XSYMBOL_HOME; no longer need to do manual configuration in most
wenzelm@10003
   407
situations;
wenzelm@10003
   408
wenzelm@9709
   409
* system: compression of ML heaps images may now be controlled via -c
wenzelm@9709
   410
option of isabelle and isatool usedir (currently only observed by
wenzelm@9709
   411
Poly/ML);
wenzelm@8358
   412
wenzelm@9981
   413
* system: isatool installfonts may handle X-Symbol fonts as well (very
wenzelm@9981
   414
useful for remote X11);
wenzelm@9981
   415
wenzelm@9709
   416
* system: provide TAGS file for Isabelle sources;
wenzelm@9052
   417
wenzelm@9288
   418
* ML: infix 'OF' is a version of 'MRS' with more appropriate argument
wenzelm@9288
   419
order;
wenzelm@9288
   420
wenzelm@8994
   421
* ML: renamed flags Syntax.trace_norm_ast to Syntax.trace_ast; global
wenzelm@8994
   422
timing flag supersedes proof_timing and Toplevel.trace;
wenzelm@8994
   423
wenzelm@10003
   424
* ML: new combinators |>> and |>>> for incremental transformations
wenzelm@10003
   425
with secondary results (e.g. certain theory extensions):
wenzelm@10003
   426
wenzelm@9330
   427
* ML: PureThy.add_defs gets additional argument to indicate potential
wenzelm@9330
   428
overloading (usually false);
wenzelm@9330
   429
wenzelm@10003
   430
* ML: PureThy.add_thms/add_axioms/add_defs now return theorems as
wenzelm@10003
   431
results;
wenzelm@8440
   432
wenzelm@8358

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES (see below for more details) ***
paulson@5931
   439
paulson@6922
   440
* HOL: The THEN and ELSE parts of conditional expressions (if P then x else y)
paulson@6922
   441
are no longer simplified.  (This allows the simplifier to unfold recursive
paulson@6922
   442
functional programs.)  To restore the old behaviour, declare
wenzelm@7215
   443
wenzelm@7215
   444
    Delcongs [if_weak_cong];
paulson@6922
   445
wenzelm@6269
   446
* HOL: Removed the obsolete syntax "Compl A"; use -A for set
wenzelm@6269
   447
complement;
paulson@5931
   448
wenzelm@6269
   449
* HOL: the predicate "inj" is now defined by translation to "inj_on";
paulson@6174
   450
berghofe@7847
   451
* HOL/datatype: mutual_induct_tac no longer exists --
berghofe@7847
   452
  use induct_tac "x_1 ... x_n" instead of mutual_induct_tac ["x_1", ..., "x_n"]
berghofe@7847
   453
wenzelm@6386
   454
* HOL/typedef: fixed type inference for representing set; type
wenzelm@6386
   455
arguments now have to occur explicitly on the rhs as type constraints;
wenzelm@6386
   456
wenzelm@6269
   457
* ZF: The con_defs part of an inductive definition may no longer refer
wenzelm@6269
   458
to constants declared in the same theory;
nipkow@6057
   459
wenzelm@6269
   460
* HOL, ZF: the function mk_cases, generated by the inductive
wenzelm@6269
   461
definition package, has lost an argument.  To simplify its result, it
wenzelm@6269
   462
uses the default simpset instead of a supplied list of theorems.
paulson@6141
   463
wenzelm@7215
   464
* HOL/List: the constructors of type list are now Nil and Cons;
wenzelm@7215
   465
nipkow@7619
   466
* Simplifier: the type of the infix ML functions
wenzelm@8729
   467
        setSSolver addSSolver setSolver addSolver
nipkow@7619
   468
is now  simpset * solver -> simpset  where `solver' is a new abstract type
nipkow@7619
   469
for packaging solvers. A solver is created via
wenzelm@8729
   470
        mk_solver: string -> (thm list -> int -> tactic) -> solver
nipkow@7619
   471
where the string argument is only a comment.

*** Proof tools ***
paulson@6069
   475
wenzelm@6343
   476
* Provers/Arith/fast_lin_arith.ML contains a functor for creating a
wenzelm@6343
   477
decision procedure for linear arithmetic. Currently it is used for
wenzelm@7593
   478
types `nat', `int', and `real' in HOL (see below); it can, should and
wenzelm@7593
   479
will be instantiated for other types and logics as well.
paulson@6069
   480
nipkow@7324
   481
* The simplifier now accepts rewrite rules with flexible heads, eg
nipkow@7324
   482
     hom ?f ==> ?f(?x+?y) = ?f ?x + ?f ?y
nipkow@7324
   483
  They are applied like any rule with a non-pattern lhs, i.e. by first-order
nipkow@7324
   484
  matching.

* New Isabelle/Isar subsystem provides an alternative to traditional
wenzelm@7215
   490
tactical theorem proving; together with the ProofGeneral/isar user
wenzelm@7215
   491
interface it offers an interactive environment for developing human
wenzelm@7215
   492
readable proof documents (Isar == Intelligible semi-automated
wenzelm@7886
   493

src/HOL/Isar_examples and http://isabelle.in.tum.de/Isar/
wenzelm@7886
   495
wenzelm@9612
   496
* improved and simplified presentation of theories: better HTML markup
wenzelm@9612
   497
(including colors), graph views in several sizes; isatool usedir now
wenzelm@9612
   498
provides a proper interface for user theories (via -P option); actual

   499
document preparation based on (PDF)LaTeX is available as well (for

   500
new-style theories only); see isatool doc system for more information;
wenzelm@7215
   501
wenzelm@7252
   502
* native support for Proof General, both for classic Isabelle and
wenzelm@7986
   503
Isabelle/Isar;
wenzelm@7215
   504
wenzelm@7791
   505
* ML function thm_deps visualizes dependencies of theorems and lemmas,
wenzelm@7791
   506
using the graph browser tool;
wenzelm@7791
   507
wenzelm@6751
   508
* Isabelle manuals now also available as PDF;
wenzelm@6751
   509
wenzelm@6449
   510
* theory loader rewritten from scratch (may not be fully
wenzelm@6449
   511
bug-compatible); old loadpath variable has been replaced by show_path,
wenzelm@6671
   512
add_path, del_path, reset_path functions; new operations such as
wenzelm@7593
   513
update_thy, touch_thy, remove_thy, use/update_thy_only (see also
wenzelm@7593
   514
isatool doc ref);
wenzelm@6449
   515
wenzelm@7215
   516
* improved isatool install: option -k creates KDE application icon,
wenzelm@7215
   517
option -p DIR installs standalone binaries;
wenzelm@7215
   518
wenzelm@7215
   519
* added ML_PLATFORM setting (useful for cross-platform installations);
wenzelm@7215
   520
more robust handling of platform specific ML images for SML/NJ;
wenzelm@7215
   521
wenzelm@7886
   522
* the settings environment is now statically scoped, i.e. it is never
wenzelm@7986
   523

wenzelm@7886
   524
Isabelle;
wenzelm@7886
   525
wenzelm@7215
   526
* path element specification '~~' refers to '$ISABELLE_HOME';
wenzelm@7215
   527
wenzelm@6343
   528
* in locales, the "assumes" and "defines" parts may be omitted if
wenzelm@6343
   529
empty;
wenzelm@5973
   530
wenzelm@6269
   531

long arrows);
wenzelm@6259

* function bind_thms stores lists of theorems (cf. bind_thm);
wenzelm@7450
   554
wenzelm@7593

* new shorthand tactics ftac, eatac, datac, fatac;
wenzelm@7593
   556
wenzelm@7593
   557
* qed (and friends) now accept "" as result name; in that case the

** HOL arithmetic **
wenzelm@7215
   568
wenzelm@6343
   569
* There are now decision procedures for linear arithmetic over nat and
wenzelm@6343
   570
int:
nipkow@6131
   571
wenzelm@6343
   572
1. arith_tac copes with arbitrary formulae involving `=', `<', `<=',
wenzelm@6343
   573
`+', `-', `Suc', `min', `max' and numerical constants; other subterms
wenzelm@6343
   574
are treated as atomic; subformulae not involving type `nat' or `int'
wenzelm@6343
   575
are ignored; quantified subformulae are ignored unless they are
wenzelm@6343
   576
positive universal or negative existential. The tactic has to be
wenzelm@6343
   577
invoked by hand and can be a little bit slow. In particular, the
wenzelm@6343
   578
running time is exponential in the number of occurrences of `min' and
wenzelm@6343
   579
`max', and `-' on `nat'.
nipkow@6131
   580
wenzelm@6343
   581
2. fast_arith_tac is a cut-down version of arith_tac: it only takes
wenzelm@6343
   582
(negated) (in)equalities among the premises and the conclusion into
wenzelm@6343
   583
account (i.e. no compound formulae) and does not know about `min' and
wenzelm@6343
   584
`max', and `-' on `nat'. It is fast and is used automatically by the
wenzelm@6343
   585
simplifier.
nipkow@6131
   586
wenzelm@6343
   587
NB: At the moment, these decision procedures do not cope with mixed
wenzelm@6343
   588
nat/int formulae where the two parts interact, such as `m < n ==>
wenzelm@6343
   589
int(m) < int(n)'.
oheimb@6028
   590
wenzelm@7215
   591
* HOL/Numeral provides a generic theory of numerals (encoded
wenzelm@7313
   592
efficiently as bit strings); setup for types nat/int/real is in place;
wenzelm@7215
   593
INCOMPATIBILITY: since numeral syntax is now polymorphic, rather than
wenzelm@7215
   594
int, existing theories and proof scripts may require a few additional
wenzelm@7215
   595
type constraints;
wenzelm@7215
   596
wenzelm@7215
   597
* integer division and remainder can now be performed on constant
wenzelm@7215
   598
arguments;
paulson@7157
   599
wenzelm@7215
   600
* many properties of integer multiplication, division and remainder
wenzelm@7215
   601
are now available;
paulson@6922
   602
paulson@7287
   603
* An interface to the Stanford Validity Checker (SVC) is available through the
paulson@7287
   604
tactic svc_tac.  Propositional tautologies and theorems of linear arithmetic
paulson@7287
   605
are proved automatically.  SVC must be installed separately, and its results
paulson@7287
   606
must be TAKEN ON TRUST (Isabelle does not check the proofs, but tags any
paulson@7287
   607
invocation of the underlying oracle).  For SVC see

wenzelm@7595
   617
wenzelm@7691
   618
* HOL/BCV: generic model of bytecode verification, i.e. data-flow
wenzelm@7691
   619
analysis for assembly languages with subtypes;
wenzelm@7691
   620
wenzelm@6278
   621
* HOL/TLA (Lamport's Temporal Logic of Actions): major reorganization
wenzelm@6278
   622
-- avoids syntactic ambiguities and treats state, transition, and
wenzelm@6278
   623
temporal levels more uniformly; introduces INCOMPATIBILITIES due to
wenzelm@6278
   624
changed syntax and (many) tactics;
wenzelm@6278
   625
wenzelm@7791
   626
* HOL/inductive: Now also handles more general introduction rules such
wenzelm@7791
   627
  as "ALL y. (y, x) : r --> y : acc r ==> x : acc r"; monotonicity
wenzelm@7791
   628
  theorems are now maintained within the theory (maintained via the
wenzelm@7791
   629
  "mono" attribute);
berghofe@7780
   630
wenzelm@7238
   631
* HOL/datatype: Now also handles arbitrarily branching datatypes
wenzelm@7238
   632
  (using function types) such as
wenzelm@7238
   633
wenzelm@7238
   634
  datatype 'a tree = Atom 'a | Branch "nat => 'a tree"
berghofe@7047

wenzelm@7326
   636
* HOL/record: record_simproc (part of the default simpset) takes care
wenzelm@7326
   637
of selectors applied to updated records; record_split_tac is no longer
wenzelm@7327
   638
part of the default claset; update_defs may now be removed from the
wenzelm@7327
   639
simpset in many cases; COMPATIBILITY: old behavior achieved by
wenzelm@7326
   640
wenzelm@7326

   643
wenzelm@6386
   644
* HOL/typedef: fixed type inference for representing set; type
wenzelm@6386
   645
arguments now have to occur explicitly on the rhs as type constraints;
wenzelm@6386
   646
paulson@7287
   647
* HOL/recdef (TFL): 'congs' syntax now expects comma separated list of theorem
paulson@7287
   648
names rather than an ML expression;
paulson@7287
   649
paulson@7287
   650
* HOL/defer_recdef (TFL): like recdef but the well-founded relation can be
paulson@7287
   651
supplied later.  Program schemes can be defined, such as
paulson@7287
   652
    "While B C s = (if B s then While B C (C s) else s)"
paulson@7287
   653
where the well-founded relation can be chosen after B and C have been given.
wenzelm@6563
   654
wenzelm@7215
   655
* HOL/List: the constructors of type list are now Nil and Cons;
wenzelm@7215
   656
INCOMPATIBILITY: while [] and infix # syntax is still there, of
wenzelm@7215
   657
course, ML tools referring to List.list.op # etc. have to be adapted;
wenzelm@7215
   658
wenzelm@7238
   659
* HOL_quantifiers flag superseded by "HOL" print mode, which is
wenzelm@7238
   660
disabled by default; run isabelle with option -m HOL to get back to
wenzelm@7238
   661
the original Gordon/HOL-style output;
wenzelm@7238
   662
wenzelm@7238
   663
* HOL/Ord.thy: new bounded quantifier syntax (input only): ALL x<y. P,
wenzelm@7238
   664
ALL x<=y. P, EX x<y. P, EX x<=y. P;
wenzelm@7238
   665
wenzelm@7238
   666
* HOL basic syntax simplified (more orthogonal): all variants of
wenzelm@7238
   667
All/Ex now support plain / symbolic / HOL notation; plain syntax for
wenzelm@7238
   668
Eps operator is provided as well: "SOME x. P[x]";
wenzelm@7238
   669
berghofe@7320
   670
* HOL/Sum.thy: sum_case has been moved to HOL/Datatype;
wenzelm@7261
   671
wenzelm@7280
   672
* HOL/Univ.thy: infix syntax <*>, <+>, <**>, <+> eliminated and made
wenzelm@7280
   673
thus available for user theories;
wenzelm@7280
   674
wenzelm@7300
   675
* HOLCF/IOA/Sequents: renamed 'Cons' to 'Consq' to avoid clash with
wenzelm@7300
   676
HOL/List; hardly an INCOMPATIBILITY since '>>' syntax is used all the
wenzelm@7300
   677
time;
wenzelm@7300
   678
wenzelm@7986
   679

   698
directly (as in HOL) over datatypes and the natural numbers;
paulson@6064
   699
wenzelm@6269
   700
* new tactics induct_tac and exhaust_tac for induction (or case
wenzelm@6269
   701
analysis) over datatypes and the natural numbers;
paulson@6064
   702
paulson@6064
   703
* the datatype declaration of type T now defines the recursor T_rec;
paulson@6064
   704
paulson@6141
   705
* simplification automatically does freeness reasoning for datatype
wenzelm@6269
   706
constructors;
paulson@6141
   707
wenzelm@6269
   708
* automatic type-inference, with AddTCs command to insert new

   709
type-checking rules;
paulson@6155
   710
wenzelm@6269
   711
* datatype introduction rules are now added as Safe Introduction rules
wenzelm@6269
   712
to the claset;
paulson@6155
   713
wenzelm@6269
   714
* the syntax "if P then x else y" is now available in addition to
wenzelm@6269

   722
* structures Vartab / Termtab (instances of TableFun) offer efficient

tables indexed by indexname_ord / term_ord (compatible with aconv);
wenzelm@7420
   724
wenzelm@6386
   725
* AxClass.axclass_tac lost the theory argument;
wenzelm@6386
   726
wenzelm@6343
   727
* tuned current_goals_markers semantics: begin / end goal avoids
wenzelm@6343
   728
printing empty lines;
wenzelm@6343
   729
wenzelm@6343
   730
* removed prs and prs_fn hook, which was broken because it did not
wenzelm@6343
   731
include \n in its semantics, forcing writeln to add one
wenzelm@6343
   732
uncoditionally; replaced prs_fn by writeln_fn; consider std_output:
wenzelm@6343
   733
string -> unit if you really want to output text without newline;
wenzelm@6343
   734
wenzelm@6343
   735
* Symbol.output subject to print mode; INCOMPATIBILITY: defaults to
wenzelm@6343
   736
plain output, interface builders may have to enable 'isabelle_font'
wenzelm@6343
   737
mode to get Isabelle font glyphs as before;
wenzelm@6343
   738
wenzelm@6343
   739
* refined token_translation interface; INCOMPATIBILITY: output length
wenzelm@6343
   740
now of type real instead of int;
wenzelm@6343
   741
wenzelm@7196
   742
* theory loader actions may be traced via new ThyInfo.add_hook
wenzelm@7196
   743
interface (see src/Pure/Thy/thy_info.ML); example application: keep
wenzelm@7196
   744
your own database of information attached to *whole* theories -- as
wenzelm@7196
   745
opposed to intra-theory data slots offered via TheoryDataFun;
wenzelm@7196
   746
wenzelm@7647
   747
* proper handling of dangling sort hypotheses (at last!);
wenzelm@7647
   748
Thm.strip_shyps and Drule.strip_shyps_warning take care of removing
wenzelm@7647
   749
extra sort hypotheses that can be witnessed from the type signature;
wenzelm@7986
   750
the force_strip_shyps flag is gone, any remaining shyps are simply
wenzelm@7986
   751
left in the theorem (with a warning issued by strip_shyps_warning);

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES (see below for more details) ***
wenzelm@4842
   759
wenzelm@5726
   760
* several changes of automated proof tools;
wenzelm@5373
   761
wenzelm@5726
   762
* HOL: major changes to the inductive and datatype packages, including
wenzelm@5726
   763
some minor incompatibilities of theory syntax;
berghofe@5214
   764
wenzelm@5726
   765
* HOL: renamed r^-1 to 'converse' from 'inverse'; 'inj_onto' is now
wenzelm@5217
   766
called `inj_on';
paulson@5160
   767
nipkow@5275
   768
* HOL: removed duplicate thms in Arith:
nipkow@5275
   769
  less_imp_add_less  should be replaced by  trans_less_add1
nipkow@5275
   770
  le_imp_add_le      should be replaced by  trans_le_add1
paulson@5160
   771
wenzelm@5726
   772
* HOL: unary minus is now overloaded (new type constraints may be
wenzelm@5726
   773
required);
paulson@5490
   774
wenzelm@5726
   775
* HOL and ZF: unary minus for integers is now #- instead of #~.  In
wenzelm@5726
   776
ZF, expressions such as n#-1 must be changed to n#- 1, since #-1 is
wenzelm@5726
   777
now taken as an integer constant.
paulson@5541
   778
wenzelm@5726
   779
* Pure: ML function 'theory_of' renamed to 'theory';
wenzelm@5397

wenzelm@5363
   781
wenzelm@5127
   782
*** Proof tools ***
nipkow@4880
   783
nipkow@5657
   784
* Simplifier:
nipkow@5657
   785
  1. Asm_full_simp_tac is now more aggressive.
nipkow@5657
   786
     1. It will sometimes reorient premises if that increases their power to
nipkow@5657
   787
        simplify.
nipkow@5657
   788
     2. It does no longer proceed strictly from left to right but may also
nipkow@5657
   789
        rotate premises to achieve further simplification.
nipkow@5657
   790
     For compatibility reasons there is now Asm_lr_simp_tac which is like the
nipkow@5657
   791
     old Asm_full_simp_tac in that it does not rotate premises.
nipkow@5657
   792
  2. The simplifier now knows a little bit about nat-arithmetic.
nipkow@4880
   793
wenzelm@5127
   794
* Classical reasoner: wrapper mechanism for the classical reasoner now
wenzelm@5127
   795
allows for selected deletion of wrappers, by introduction of names for
wenzelm@5127
   796
wrapper functionals.  This implies that addbefore, addSbefore,
wenzelm@5127
   797
addaltern, and addSaltern now take a pair (name, tactic) as argument,
wenzelm@5127
   798
and that adding two tactics with the same name overwrites the first
wenzelm@5127
   799
one (emitting a warning).
oheimb@4824
   800
  type wrapper = (int -> tactic) -> (int -> tactic)
oheimb@4649
   801
  setWrapper, setSWrapper, compWrapper and compSWrapper are replaced by
oheimb@4824
   802
  addWrapper, addSWrapper: claset * (string * wrapper) -> claset
oheimb@4824
   803
  delWrapper, delSWrapper: claset *  string            -> claset
oheimb@4649
   804
  getWrapper is renamed to appWrappers, getSWrapper to appSWrappers;
oheimb@4649
   805
wenzelm@5705
   806
* Classical reasoner: addbefore/addSbefore now have APPEND/ORELSE
wenzelm@5726
   807
semantics; addbefore now affects only the unsafe part of step_tac
wenzelm@5726
   808
etc.; this affects addss/auto_tac/force_tac, so EXISTING PROOFS MAY
wenzelm@5726
   809
FAIL, but proofs should be fixable easily, e.g. by replacing Auto_tac
wenzelm@5726
   810
by Force_tac;
oheimb@5524
   811
wenzelm@5726
   812
* Classical reasoner: setwrapper to setWrapper and compwrapper to
wenzelm@5726
   813
compWrapper; added safe wrapper (and access functions for it);
oheimb@5524
   814
wenzelm@5127
   815
* HOL/split_all_tac is now much faster and fails if there is nothing
wenzelm@5726
   816
to split.  Some EXISTING PROOFS MAY REQUIRE ADAPTION because the order
wenzelm@5726
   817
and the names of the automatically generated variables have changed.
wenzelm@5726
   818
split_all_tac has moved within claset() from unsafe wrappers to safe
wenzelm@5726
   819
wrappers, which means that !!-bound variables are split much more
wenzelm@5726
   820
aggressively, and safe_tac and clarify_tac now split such variables.
wenzelm@5726
   821
If this splitting is not appropriate, use delSWrapper "split_all_tac".
wenzelm@5726
   822
Note: the same holds for record_split_tac, which does the job of
wenzelm@5726
   823
split_all_tac for record fields.
wenzelm@5127
   824
wenzelm@5726
   825
* HOL/Simplifier: Rewrite rules for case distinctions can now be added
wenzelm@5726
   826
permanently to the default simpset using Addsplits just like
wenzelm@5726
   827
Addsimps. They can be removed via Delsplits just like
wenzelm@5726
   828
Delsimps. Lower-case versions are also available.
wenzelm@5127
   829
wenzelm@5726
   830
* HOL/Simplifier: The rule split_if is now part of the default
wenzelm@5726
   831
simpset. This means that the simplifier will eliminate all occurrences
wenzelm@5726
   832
of if-then-else in the conclusion of a goal. To prevent this, you can
wenzelm@5726
   833
either remove split_if completely from the default simpset by
wenzelm@5726
   834
`Delsplits [split_if]' or remove it in a specific call of the
wenzelm@5726
   835
simplifier using `... delsplits [split_if]'.  You can also add/delete
wenzelm@5726
   836
other case splitting rules to/from the default simpset: every datatype
wenzelm@5726
   837
generates suitable rules `split_t_case' and `split_t_case_asm' (where
wenzelm@5726
   838
t is the name of the datatype).

* Classical reasoner / Simplifier combination: new force_tac (and
wenzelm@5127
   841
derivatives Force_tac, force) combines rewriting and classical
wenzelm@5127
   842
reasoning (and whatever other tools) similarly to auto_tac, but is
wenzelm@5726
   843
aimed to solve the given subgoal completely.

wenzelm@5217
   848
* new top-level commands `Goal' and `Goalw' that improve upon `goal'
wenzelm@5127
   849
and `goalw': the theory is no longer needed as an explicit argument -
wenzelm@5127
   850
the current theory context is used; assumptions are no longer returned
wenzelm@5127
   851
at the ML-level unless one of them starts with ==> or !!; it is
wenzelm@5217
   852
recommended to convert to these new commands using isatool fixgoal
wenzelm@5217
   853
(backup your sources first!);
wenzelm@4842
   854
wenzelm@5217
   855
* new top-level commands 'thm' and 'thms' for retrieving theorems from
wenzelm@5207
   856
the current theory context, and 'theory' to lookup stored theories;
paulson@4806
   857
paulson@5722
   858
* new theory section 'locale' for declaring constants, assumptions and
paulson@5722
   859
definitions that have local scope;
paulson@5722
   860
wenzelm@5127
   861
* new theory section 'nonterminals' for purely syntactic types;
wenzelm@4858
   862
wenzelm@5127
   863
* new theory section 'setup' for generic ML setup functions
wenzelm@5127
   864
(e.g. package initialization);
wenzelm@4869
   865
wenzelm@5131
   866
* the distribution now includes Isabelle icons: see
wenzelm@5131
   867
lib/logo/isabelle-{small,tiny}.xpm;
wenzelm@5131
   868
wenzelm@5363
   869
* isatool install - install binaries with absolute references to
wenzelm@5363
   870
ISABELLE_HOME/bin;
wenzelm@5363
   871
wenzelm@5572
   872
* isatool logo -- create instances of the Isabelle logo (as EPS);
wenzelm@5572
   873
wenzelm@5407
   874
* print mode 'emacs' reserved for Isamode;
wenzelm@5407
   875
wenzelm@5726
   876
* support multiple print (ast) translations per constant name;
wenzelm@5726
   877
wenzelm@6925
   878
* theorems involving oracles are now printed with a suffixed [!];

*** HOL ***
paulson@4661
   882
wenzelm@5710
   883
* there is now a tutorial on Isabelle/HOL (do 'isatool doc tutorial');
nipkow@5709
   884
wenzelm@5217
   885
* HOL/inductive package reorganized and improved: now supports mutual
paulson@5267
   886
definitions such as
wenzelm@5217
   887
wenzelm@5217
   888
  inductive EVEN ODD
wenzelm@5217
   889
    intrs

      evenI "n : ODD ==> Suc n : EVEN"
wenzelm@5217
   893
wenzelm@5217
   894
new theorem list "elims" contains an elimination rule for each of the
wenzelm@5217
   895
recursive sets; inductive definitions now handle disjunctive premises
wenzelm@5217
   896
correctly (also ZF);
berghofe@5214
   897
wenzelm@5217
   898
INCOMPATIBILITIES: requires Inductive as an ancestor; component
wenzelm@5217
   899
"mutual_induct" no longer exists - the induction rule is always
wenzelm@5217
   900
contained in "induct";
wenzelm@5217
   901
wenzelm@5217
   902
wenzelm@5217
   903
* HOL/datatype package re-implemented and greatly improved: now
paulson@5267
   904
supports mutually recursive datatypes such as
wenzelm@5217
   905
wenzelm@5217
   906
  datatype
wenzelm@5217
   907
    'a aexp = IF_THEN_ELSE ('a bexp) ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
   908
            | SUM ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
   909
            | DIFF ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
   910
            | NUM 'a
wenzelm@5217
   911
  and
wenzelm@5217
   912
    'a bexp = LESS ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
   913
            | AND ('a bexp) ('a bexp)
wenzelm@5217
   914
            | OR ('a bexp) ('a bexp)
wenzelm@5217
   915
paulson@5267
   916
as well as indirectly recursive datatypes such as
berghofe@5214
   917
wenzelm@5217
   918
  datatype
wenzelm@5217
   919
    ('a, 'b) term = Var 'a
wenzelm@5217
   920
                  | App 'b ((('a, 'b) term) list)
berghofe@5214
   921
wenzelm@5217
   922
The new tactic  mutual_induct_tac [<var_1>, ..., <var_n>] i  performs
wenzelm@5217
   923
induction on mutually / indirectly recursive datatypes.
wenzelm@5217
   924
wenzelm@5217
   925
Primrec equations are now stored in theory and can be accessed via
wenzelm@5217
   926
<function_name>.simps.
wenzelm@5217
   927
wenzelm@5217
   928
INCOMPATIBILITIES:
berghofe@5214
   929
wenzelm@5217
   930
  - Theories using datatypes must now have theory Datatype as an
wenzelm@5217
   931
    ancestor.
wenzelm@5217
   932
  - The specific <typename>.induct_tac no longer exists - use the
wenzelm@5217
   933
    generic induct_tac instead.
berghofe@5226
   934
  - natE has been renamed to nat.exhaust - use exhaust_tac
wenzelm@5217
   935
    instead of res_inst_tac ... natE. Note that the variable
berghofe@5226
   936
    names in nat.exhaust differ from the names in natE, this
wenzelm@5217
   937
    may cause some "fragile" proofs to fail.
wenzelm@5217
   938
  - The theorems split_<typename>_case and split_<typename>_case_asm
wenzelm@5217
   939
    have been renamed to <typename>.split and <typename>.split_asm.
wenzelm@5217
   940
  - Since default sorts of type variables are now handled correctly,
wenzelm@5217
   941
    some datatype definitions may have to be annotated with explicit
wenzelm@5217
   942
    sort constraints.
wenzelm@5217
   943
  - Primrec definitions no longer require function name and type
wenzelm@5217
   944
    of recursive argument.
berghofe@5214
   945
wenzelm@5217
   946
Consider using isatool fixdatatype to adapt your theories and proof
wenzelm@5217
   947
scripts to the new package (backup your sources first!).
wenzelm@5217
   948
wenzelm@5217
   949
wenzelm@5726
   950
* HOL/record package: considerably improved implementation; now
wenzelm@5726
   951
includes concrete syntax for record types, terms, updates; theorems
wenzelm@5726
   952
for surjective pairing and splitting !!-bound record variables; proof
wenzelm@5726
   953
support is as follows:
wenzelm@5726
   954
wenzelm@5726
   955
  1) standard conversions (selectors or updates applied to record
wenzelm@5726
   956
constructor terms) are part of the standard simpset;
wenzelm@5726
   957
wenzelm@5726
   958
  2) inject equations of the form ((x, y) = (x', y')) == x=x' & y=y' are
wenzelm@5726
   959
made part of standard simpset and claset via addIffs;
wenzelm@5726
   960
wenzelm@5726
   961
  3) a tactic for record field splitting (record_split_tac) is part of
wenzelm@5726
   962
the standard claset (addSWrapper);
wenzelm@5726
   963
wenzelm@5726
   964
To get a better idea about these rules you may retrieve them via
wenzelm@5726
   965
something like 'thms "foo.simps"' or 'thms "foo.iffs"', where "foo" is
wenzelm@5726
   966
the name of your record type.
wenzelm@5726
   967
wenzelm@5726
   968
The split tactic 3) conceptually simplifies by the following rule:
wenzelm@5726
   969
wenzelm@5726
   970
  "(!!x. PROP ?P x) == (!!a b. PROP ?P (a, b))"
wenzelm@5726
   971
wenzelm@5726
   972
Thus any record variable that is bound by meta-all will automatically
wenzelm@5726
   973
blow up into some record constructor term, consequently the
wenzelm@5726
   974
simplifications of 1), 2) apply.  Thus force_tac, auto_tac etc. shall
wenzelm@5726
   975
solve record problems automatically.
wenzelm@5726
   976
berghofe@5214
   977
wenzelm@5125
   978
* reorganized the main HOL image: HOL/Integ and String loaded by
wenzelm@5125
   979
default; theory Main includes everything;
wenzelm@5125
   980
paulson@5650
   981
* automatic simplification of integer sums and comparisons, using cancellation;
paulson@5650
   982
oheimb@5526
   983
* added option_map_eq_Some and not_Some_eq to the default simpset and claset;
wenzelm@5127
   984
wenzelm@5127
   985
* added disj_not1 = "(~P | Q) = (P --> Q)" to the default simpset;
wenzelm@5127
   986
wenzelm@5127
   987
* many new identities for unions, intersections, set difference, etc.;
wenzelm@5127
   988
wenzelm@5127
   989
* expand_if, expand_split, expand_sum_case and expand_nat_case are now
wenzelm@5127
   990
called split_if, split_split, split_sum_case and split_nat_case (to go
wenzelm@5127
   991
with add/delsplits);
wenzelm@5125
   992
wenzelm@5127
   993
* HOL/Prod introduces simplification procedure unit_eq_proc rewriting
wenzelm@5127
   994
(?x::unit) = (); this is made part of the default simpset, which COULD
wenzelm@5127
   995
MAKE EXISTING PROOFS FAIL under rare circumstances (consider
wenzelm@5207
   996
'Delsimprocs [unit_eq_proc];' as last resort); also note that
wenzelm@5207
   997
unit_abs_eta_conv is added in order to counter the effect of
wenzelm@5207
   998
unit_eq_proc on (%u::unit. f u), replacing it by f rather than by
wenzelm@5207
   999
%u.f();
wenzelm@5125
  1000
wenzelm@5217
  1001
* HOL/Fun INCOMPATIBILITY: `inj_onto' is now called `inj_on' (which
wenzelm@5217
  1002
makes more sense);
berghofe@5109
  1003
paulson@5475
  1004
* HOL/Set INCOMPATIBILITY: rule `equals0D' is now a well-formed destruct rule;
paulson@5475
  1005
  It and 'sym RS equals0D' are now in the default  claset, giving automatic
paulson@5475
  1006
  disjointness reasoning but breaking a few old proofs.
paulson@5267
  1007
wenzelm@5217
  1008
* HOL/Relation INCOMPATIBILITY: renamed the relational operator r^-1
wenzelm@5217
  1009
to 'converse' from 'inverse' (for compatibility with ZF and some
wenzelm@5217
  1010
literature);
wenzelm@5085
  1011
wenzelm@5127
  1012
* HOL/recdef can now declare non-recursive functions, with {} supplied as
wenzelm@5127
  1013
the well-founded relation;
oheimb@4838
  1014
paulson@5490
  1015
* HOL/Set INCOMPATIBILITY: the complement of set A is now written -A instead of
paulson@5490
  1016
    Compl A.  The "Compl" syntax remains available as input syntax for this
paulson@5490
  1017
    release ONLY.
paulson@5490
  1018
wenzelm@5127
  1019
* HOL/Update: new theory of function updates:
wenzelm@5127
  1020
    f(a:=b) == %x. if x=a then b else f x
wenzelm@5127
  1021
may also be iterated as in f(a:=b,c:=d,...);
nipkow@5077
  1022
wenzelm@5127
  1023
* HOL/Vimage: new theory for inverse image of a function, syntax f-``B;
paulson@4899
  1024
nipkow@5282
  1025
* HOL/List:
nipkow@5282
  1026
  - new function list_update written xs[i:=v] that updates the i-th
nipkow@5282
  1027
    list position. May also be iterated as in xs[i:=a,j:=b,...].
nipkow@5428
  1028
  - new function `upt' written [i..j(] which generates the list
nipkow@5428
  1029
    [i,i+1,...,j-1], i.e. the upper bound is excluded. To include the upper
nipkow@5428
  1030
    bound write [i..j], which is a shorthand for [i..j+1(].
nipkow@5282
  1031
  - new lexicographic orderings and corresponding wellfoundedness theorems.
paulson@4779
  1032
wenzelm@5127
  1033
* HOL/Arith:
wenzelm@5127
  1034
  - removed 'pred' (predecessor) function;
wenzelm@5127
  1035
  - generalized some theorems about n-1;
wenzelm@5127
  1036
  - many new laws about "div" and "mod";
wenzelm@5127
  1037
  - new laws about greatest common divisors (see theory ex/Primes);
oheimb@4766
  1038
wenzelm@5127
  1039
* HOL/Relation: renamed the relational operator r^-1 "converse"
wenzelm@4842
  1040
instead of "inverse";
wenzelm@4711
  1041
nipkow@5651
  1042
* HOL/Induct/Multiset: a theory of multisets, including the wellfoundedness
nipkow@5651

  of the multiset ordering;
nipkow@5651
  1044
wenzelm@5127
  1045

nipkow@5651
  1046
  (not included by default);
nipkow@4835

  1048
* directory HOL/UNITY: Chandy and Misra's UNITY formalism;
wenzelm@4711
  1049
nipkow@5651
  1050
* directory HOL/Hoare: a new version of Hoare logic which permits many-sorted
nipkow@5651
  1051
  programs, i.e. different program variables may have different types.
nipkow@5651
  1052
paulson@5142

paulson@5142
  1054
  [previously, this check worked only if the rewrite rule was unconditional]
paulson@5308
  1055
  Now rew can involve either definitions or equalities (either == or =).

  1089
print_data function becomes basically useless;
wenzelm@5002
  1090
wenzelm@5251

wenzelm@4410
  1119
* changed lexical syntax of terms / types: dots made part of long
wenzelm@4410
  1120
identifiers, e.g. "%x.x" no longer possible, should be "%x. x";
wenzelm@4410
  1121
wenzelm@4410
  1122
* simpset (and claset) reference variable replaced by functions
wenzelm@4410
  1123
simpset / simpset_ref;
wenzelm@4410
  1124
wenzelm@4410
  1125
* no longer supports theory aliases (via merge) and non-trivial
wenzelm@4410
  1126
implicit merge of thms' signatures;
wenzelm@4410
  1127
wenzelm@4410
  1128
* most internal names of constants changed due to qualified names;
wenzelm@4410
  1129
wenzelm@4410
  1130
* changed Pure/Sequence interface (see Pure/seq.ML);

*** General Changes ***
paulson@3715
  1134
wenzelm@4174
  1135
* hierachically structured name spaces (for consts, types, axms, thms
wenzelm@3943
  1136
etc.); new lexical class 'longid' (e.g. Foo.bar.x) may render much of
wenzelm@4108
  1137
old input syntactically incorrect (e.g. "%x.x"); COMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@4108
  1138
isatool fixdots ensures space after dots (e.g. "%x. x"); set
wenzelm@4174
  1139
long_names for fully qualified output names; NOTE: ML programs
wenzelm@4174
  1140
(special tactics, packages etc.) referring to internal names may have
wenzelm@4174
  1141
to be adapted to cope with fully qualified names; in case of severe
wenzelm@4174
  1142
backward campatibility problems try setting 'global_names' at compile
wenzelm@4174
  1143
time to have enrything declared within a flat name space; one may also
wenzelm@4174
  1144
fine tune name declarations in theories via the 'global' and 'local'
wenzelm@4174
  1145
section;
wenzelm@4108
  1146
wenzelm@4108
  1147
* reimplemented the implicit simpset and claset using the new anytype
wenzelm@4108
  1148
data filed in signatures; references simpset:simpset ref etc. are
wenzelm@4108
  1149
replaced by functions simpset:unit->simpset and
wenzelm@4108
  1150
simpset_ref:unit->simpset ref; COMPATIBILITY: use isatool fixclasimp
wenzelm@4108
  1151
to patch your ML files accordingly;
paulson@3856
  1152
wenzelm@3857
  1153
* HTML output now includes theory graph data for display with Java
wenzelm@3857
  1154
applet or isatool browser; data generated automatically via isatool
wenzelm@3901
  1155
usedir (see -i option, ISABELLE_USEDIR_OPTIONS);
wenzelm@3857
  1156
paulson@3856
  1157
* defs may now be conditional; improved rewrite_goals_tac to handle
paulson@3856
  1158
conditional equations;
paulson@3856
  1159
wenzelm@4174
  1160
* defs now admits additional type arguments, using TYPE('a) syntax;
wenzelm@4174
  1161
wenzelm@3901
  1162
* theory aliases via merge (e.g. M=A+B+C) no longer supported, always
wenzelm@3901
  1163
creates a new theory node; implicit merge of thms' signatures is
wenzelm@4112
  1164
restricted to 'trivial' ones; COMPATIBILITY: one may have to use
wenzelm@3901
  1165
transfer:theory->thm->thm in (rare) cases;
wenzelm@3901
  1166
wenzelm@3968
  1167
* improved handling of draft signatures / theories; draft thms (and
wenzelm@3968
  1168
ctyps, cterms) are automatically promoted to real ones;
wenzelm@3968
  1169
wenzelm@3901
  1170
* slightly changed interfaces for oracles: admit many per theory, named
wenzelm@3901
  1171
(e.g. oracle foo = mlfun), additional name argument for invoke_oracle;
wenzelm@3901
  1172
wenzelm@3901
  1173
* print_goals: optional output of const types (set show_consts and
wenzelm@3901
  1174
show_types);
wenzelm@3851
  1175
wenzelm@4388
  1176
* improved output of warnings (###) and errors (***);
wenzelm@3697
  1177
paulson@4178
  1178
* subgoal_tac displays a warning if the new subgoal has type variables;
paulson@4178
  1179
paulson@3715
  1180
* removed old README and Makefiles;
wenzelm@3697
  1181
paulson@3856
  1182
* replaced print_goals_ref hook by print_current_goals_fn and result_error_fn;
wenzelm@3670
  1183
paulson@3715
  1184
* removed obsolete init_pps and init_database;
paulson@3715
  1185
paulson@3715
  1186
* deleted the obsolete tactical STATE, which was declared by
paulson@3715
  1187
    fun STATE tacfun st = tacfun st st;
paulson@3715
  1188
wenzelm@4388
  1189
* cd and use now support path variables, e.g. $ISABELLE_HOME, or ~
wenzelm@4388
  1190
(which abbreviates $HOME);
wenzelm@4269
  1191
wenzelm@4269
  1192
* changed Pure/Sequence interface (see Pure/seq.ML); COMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@4269
  1193
use isatool fixseq to adapt your ML programs (this works for fully
wenzelm@4269
  1194
qualified references to the Sequence structure only!);
wenzelm@4269
  1195
wenzelm@4381
  1196
* use_thy no longer requires writable current directory; it always
wenzelm@4381
  1197
reloads .ML *and* .thy file, if either one is out of date;
wenzelm@4269
  1198
paulson@3715
  1199
paulson@3715
  1200
*** Classical Reasoner ***
paulson@3715
  1201
wenzelm@3744
  1202
* Clarify_tac, clarify_tac, clarify_step_tac, Clarify_step_tac: new
wenzelm@3744
  1203
tactics that use classical reasoning to simplify a subgoal without
wenzelm@3744
  1204
splitting it into several subgoals;
paulson@3715
  1205
paulson@3719
  1206
* Safe_tac: like safe_tac but uses the default claset;
paulson@3719
  1207
paulson@3715
  1208
paulson@3715
  1209
*** Simplifier ***
paulson@3715
  1210
paulson@3715
  1211
* added simplification meta rules:
paulson@3715
  1212
    (asm_)(full_)simplify: simpset -> thm -> thm;
paulson@3715
  1213
paulson@3715
  1214
* simplifier.ML no longer part of Pure -- has to be loaded by object
paulson@3715
  1215
logics (again);
paulson@3715
  1216
paulson@3715
  1217
* added prems argument to simplification procedures;
paulson@3715
  1218
paulson@4325
  1219
* HOL, FOL, ZF: added infix function `addsplits':
paulson@4325
  1220
  instead of `<simpset> setloop (split_tac <thms>)'
paulson@4325
  1221
  you can simply write `<simpset> addsplits <thms>'
paulson@4325
  1222
paulson@3715
  1223
paulson@3715
  1224
*** Syntax ***
paulson@3715
  1225
wenzelm@4174
  1226
* TYPE('a) syntax for type reflection terms;
wenzelm@4174
  1227
wenzelm@3985
  1228
* no longer handles consts with name "" -- declare as 'syntax' instead;
paulson@3856
  1229
paulson@3856
  1230
* pretty printer: changed order of mixfix annotation preference (again!);
wenzelm@3846
  1231
paulson@3715
  1232
* Pure: fixed idt/idts vs. pttrn/pttrns syntactic categories;
paulson@3715
  1233
paulson@3715
  1234
paulson@3715
  1235
*** HOL ***
paulson@3715
  1236
wenzelm@5726
  1237
* HOL: there is a new splitter `split_asm_tac' that can be used e.g.
oheimb@4189
  1238
  with `addloop' of the simplifier to faciliate case splitting in premises.
oheimb@4189
  1239
nipkow@4035
  1240
* HOL/TLA: Stephan Merz's formalization of Lamport's Temporal Logic of Actions;
wenzelm@3985
  1241
wenzelm@3985
  1242
* HOL/Auth: new protocol proofs including some for the Internet
nipkow@4035
  1243
  protocol TLS;
wenzelm@3985
  1244
wenzelm@4125
  1245
* HOL/Map: new theory of `maps' a la VDM;
nipkow@3982
  1246
wenzelm@4335
  1247
* HOL/simplifier: simplification procedures nat_cancel_sums for
wenzelm@4335
  1248
cancelling out common nat summands from =, <, <= (in)equalities, or
wenzelm@4335
  1249
differences; simplification procedures nat_cancel_factor for
wenzelm@4335
  1250
cancelling common factor from =, <, <= (in)equalities over natural
wenzelm@4373
  1251
sums; nat_cancel contains both kinds of procedures, it is installed by
wenzelm@4373
  1252
default in Arith.thy -- this COULD MAKE EXISTING PROOFS FAIL;
wenzelm@4335
  1253
nipkow@3580
  1254
* HOL/simplifier: terms of the form
paulson@4325
  1255
  `? x. P1(x) & ... & Pn(x) & x=t & Q1(x) & ... Qn(x)'  (or t=x)
nipkow@3580
  1256
  are rewritten to
nipkow@4035
  1257
  `P1(t) & ... & Pn(t) & Q1(t) & ... Qn(t)',
nipkow@4035
  1258
  and those of the form
paulson@4325
  1259
  `! x. P1(x) & ... & Pn(x) & x=t & Q1(x) & ... Qn(x) --> R(x)'  (or t=x)
nipkow@4035
  1260
  are rewritten to
nipkow@4035
  1261
  `P1(t) & ... & Pn(t) & Q1(t) & ... Qn(t) --> R(t)',
nipkow@4035
  1262
nipkow@4035
  1263
* HOL/datatype
nipkow@4035
  1264
  Each datatype `t' now comes with a theorem `split_t_case' of the form
nipkow@3580
  1265
nipkow@4035
  1266
  P(t_case f1 ... fn x) =
nipkow@4035
  1267
     ( (!y1 ... ym1. x = C1 y1 ... ym1 --> P(f1 y1 ... ym1)) &
nipkow@4035
  1268
        ...
oheimb@4189
  1269
       (!y1 ... ymn. x = Cn y1 ... ymn --> P(f1 y1 ... ymn))
nipkow@4035
  1270
     )
nipkow@4035
  1271
oheimb@4930
  1272
  and a theorem `split_t_case_asm' of the form
oheimb@4189
  1273
oheimb@4189
  1274
  P(t_case f1 ... fn x) =
oheimb@4189
  1275
    ~( (? y1 ... ym1. x = C1 y1 ... ym1 & ~P(f1 y1 ... ym1)) |
oheimb@4189
  1276
        ...
oheimb@4189
  1277
       (? y1 ... ymn. x = Cn y1 ... ymn & ~P(f1 y1 ... ymn))
oheimb@4189
  1278
     )
oheimb@4930
  1279
  which can be added to a simpset via `addsplits'. The existing theorems
oheimb@4930
  1280
  expand_list_case and expand_option_case have been renamed to
oheimb@4930
  1281
  split_list_case and split_option_case.
oheimb@4189
  1282
nipkow@4361
  1283
* HOL/Arithmetic:
nipkow@4361
  1284
  - `pred n' is automatically converted to `n-1'.
nipkow@4361
  1285
    Users are strongly encouraged not to use `pred' any longer,
nipkow@4361
  1286
    because it will disappear altogether at some point.
nipkow@4361
  1287
  - Users are strongly encouraged to write "0 < n" rather than
nipkow@4361
  1288
    "n ~= 0". Theorems and proof tools have been modified towards this
nipkow@4361
  1289
    `standard'.
nipkow@4357
  1290
nipkow@4502
  1291
* HOL/Lists:
nipkow@4502
  1292
  the function "set_of_list" has been renamed "set" (and its theorems too);
nipkow@4502
  1293
  the function "nth" now takes its arguments in the reverse order and
nipkow@4502
  1294
  has acquired the infix notation "!" as in "xs!n".
paulson@3570
  1295
paulson@4154
  1296
* HOL/Set: UNIV is now a constant and is no longer translated to Compl{};
paulson@4154
  1297
paulson@4154
  1298
* HOL/Set: The operator (UN x.B x) now abbreviates (UN x:UNIV. B x) and its
paulson@4154
  1299
  specialist theorems (like UN1_I) are gone.  Similarly for (INT x.B x);
paulson@4154
  1300
wenzelm@4575
  1301
* HOL/record: extensible records with schematic structural subtyping
wenzelm@4575
  1302
(single inheritance); EXPERIMENTAL version demonstrating the encoding,
wenzelm@4575
  1303
still lacks various theorems and concrete record syntax;
wenzelm@4575
  1304
wenzelm@4125
  1305
paulson@3715
  1306
*** HOLCF ***
wenzelm@3535
  1307
wenzelm@4125
  1308
* removed "axioms" and "generated by" sections;
wenzelm@4125
  1309
oheimb@4123
  1310
* replaced "ops" section by extended "consts" section, which is capable of
wenzelm@4125
  1311
  handling the continuous function space "->" directly;
wenzelm@4125
  1312
wenzelm@4125
  1313
* domain package:
wenzelm@4125
  1314
  . proves theorems immediately and stores them in the theory,
wenzelm@4125
  1315
  . creates hierachical name space,
wenzelm@4125
  1316
  . now uses normal mixfix annotations (instead of cinfix...),
wenzelm@4125
  1317
  . minor changes to some names and values (for consistency),
wenzelm@4125
  1318
  . e.g. cases -> casedist, dists_eq -> dist_eqs, [take_lemma] -> take_lemmas,
wenzelm@4125
  1319
  . separator between mutual domain defs: changed "," to "and",
wenzelm@4125
  1320
  . improved handling of sort constraints;  now they have to
wenzelm@4125
  1321
    appear on the left-hand side of the equations only;
oheimb@4123
  1322
oheimb@4123
  1323
* fixed LAM <x,y,zs>.b syntax;
wenzelm@3567
  1324
wenzelm@3744
  1325
* added extended adm_tac to simplifier in HOLCF -- can now discharge
wenzelm@3744
  1326
adm (%x. P (t x)), where P is chainfinite and t continuous;
wenzelm@3579
  1327
wenzelm@3579

paulson@3719
  1329
*** FOL and ZF ***
paulson@3719
  1330
wenzelm@5726
  1331
* FOL: there is a new splitter `split_asm_tac' that can be used e.g.
oheimb@4189
  1332
  with `addloop' of the simplifier to faciliate case splitting in premises.
oheimb@4189
  1333
wenzelm@3744
  1334
* qed_spec_mp, qed_goal_spec_mp, qed_goalw_spec_mp are available, as
wenzelm@3744
  1335
in HOL, they strip ALL and --> from proved theorems;

paulson@3002
  1342
*** General Changes ***
paulson@3002
  1343
paulson@3002
  1344
* new utilities to build / run / maintain Isabelle etc. (in parts
paulson@3002
  1345
still somewhat experimental); old Makefiles etc. still functional;
wenzelm@2971
  1346
wenzelm@3205
  1347
* new 'Isabelle System Manual';
wenzelm@3205
  1348
wenzelm@2825
  1349
* INSTALL text, together with ./configure and ./build scripts;
wenzelm@2773
  1350
wenzelm@3006
  1351
* reimplemented type inference for greater efficiency, better error
wenzelm@3006
  1352
messages and clean internal interface;
paulson@3002
  1353
paulson@3002
  1354
* prlim command for dealing with lots of subgoals (an easier way of
paulson@3002
  1355
setting goals_limit);
paulson@3002
  1356
wenzelm@3006
  1357
wenzelm@3006
  1358
*** Syntax ***
paulson@3002
  1359
wenzelm@3116
  1360
* supports alternative (named) syntax tables (parser and pretty
wenzelm@3116
  1361
printer); internal interface is provided by add_modesyntax(_i);
wenzelm@3116
  1362
paulson@3002
  1363
* Pure, FOL, ZF, HOL, HOLCF now support symbolic input and output; to
paulson@3002
  1364
be used in conjunction with the Isabelle symbol font; uses the
paulson@3002
  1365
"symbols" syntax table;
paulson@3002
  1366
wenzelm@2705
  1367
* added token_translation interface (may translate name tokens in
wenzelm@2756
  1368
arbitrary ways, dependent on their type (free, bound, tfree, ...) and
wenzelm@3116
  1369
the current print_mode); IMPORTANT: user print translation functions
wenzelm@3116
  1370
are responsible for marking newly introduced bounds
wenzelm@3116
  1371
(Syntax.mark_boundT);
wenzelm@2705
  1372
wenzelm@2730
  1373
* token translations for modes "xterm" and "xterm_color" that display
wenzelm@3006
  1374
names in bold, underline etc. or colors (which requires a color
wenzelm@3006
  1375
version of xterm);
wenzelm@2730
  1376
paulson@3002
  1377
* infixes may now be declared with names independent of their syntax;
paulson@3002
  1378
paulson@3002
  1379
* added typed_print_translation (like print_translation, but may
paulson@3002
  1380
access type of constant);

*** Classical Reasoner ***
paulson@3002
  1384
paulson@3002
  1385
Blast_tac: a new tactic!  It is often more powerful than fast_tac, but has
paulson@3002
  1386
some limitations.  Blast_tac...
paulson@3002
  1387
  + ignores addss, addbefore, addafter; this restriction is intrinsic
paulson@3002
  1388
  + ignores elimination rules that don't have the correct format
wenzelm@5726
  1389
        (the conclusion MUST be a formula variable)
paulson@3002
  1390
  + ignores types, which can make HOL proofs fail
paulson@3002
  1391
  + rules must not require higher-order unification, e.g. apply_type in ZF
paulson@3002
  1392
    [message "Function Var's argument not a bound variable" relates to this]
paulson@3002
  1393
  + its proof strategy is more general but can actually be slower
paulson@3002
  1394
wenzelm@3107
  1395
* substitution with equality assumptions no longer permutes other
wenzelm@3107
  1396
assumptions;
paulson@3002
  1397
paulson@3002
  1398
* minor changes in semantics of addafter (now called addaltern); renamed
paulson@3002
  1399
setwrapper to setWrapper and compwrapper to compWrapper; added safe wrapper
wenzelm@3107
  1400
(and access functions for it);
paulson@3002
  1401
wenzelm@5726
  1402
* improved combination of classical reasoner and simplifier:
oheimb@3317
  1403
  + functions for handling clasimpsets
oheimb@3317
  1404
  + improvement of addss: now the simplifier is called _after_ the
oheimb@3317
  1405
    safe steps.

  1576
wenzelm@5726
  1577
* a new logic, CHOL, the same as HOL, but with a curried syntax
wenzelm@5726
  1578
for functions.  Application looks like f a b instead of f(a,b).  Also pairs

paulson@2557
  1605
* Simple database queries: return a named theorem (get_thm) or all theorems of
paulson@2557
  1606
a given theory (thms_of), or find out what theory a theorem was proved in
paulson@2557
  1607
(theory_of_thm);
paulson@2557
  1608
paulson@2557
  1609
* Bugs fixed in the inductive definition and datatype packages;
paulson@2557
  1610
paulson@2557
  1611
* The classical reasoner provides deepen_tac and depth_tac, making FOL_dup_cs
paulson@2557
  1612
and HOL_dup_cs obsolete;
paulson@2557
  1613
paulson@2557
  1614
