*** General ***
wenzelm@31547
     8
wenzelm@31547
     9
* Discontinued old form of "escaped symbols" such as \\<forall>.  Only
wenzelm@31547
    10
one backslash should be used, even in ML sources.
wenzelm@31547

*** Pure ***
haftmann@30951
    14
wenzelm@31547
    15
* On instantiation of classes, remaining undefined class parameters
wenzelm@31547
    16
are formally declared.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@30951

*** HOL ***
haftmann@30930
    20
wenzelm@31547
    21
* Class semiring_div requires superclass no_zero_divisors and proof of
wenzelm@31547
    22
div_mult_mult1; theorems div_mult_mult1, div_mult_mult2,
wenzelm@31547
    23
div_mult_mult1_if, div_mult_mult1 and div_mult_mult2 have been
wenzelm@31547
    24
generalized to class semiring_div, subsuming former theorems
wenzelm@31547
    25
zdiv_zmult_zmult1, zdiv_zmult_zmult1_if, zdiv_zmult_zmult1 and
wenzelm@31547
    26
zdiv_zmult_zmult2.  div_mult_mult1 is now [simp] by default.
wenzelm@31547
    27
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@31547
    28
wenzelm@31547
    29
* Power operations on relations and functions are now one dedicate
wenzelm@31547
    30
constant compow with infix syntax "^^".  Power operations on
wenzelm@31547
    31
multiplicative monoids retains syntax "^" and is now defined generic
wenzelm@31547
    32
in class power.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@31547
    33
wenzelm@31547
    34
* ML antiquotation @{code_datatype} inserts definition of a datatype
wenzelm@31547
    35
generated by the code generator; see Predicate.thy for an example.
wenzelm@31547
    36
wenzelm@31547
    37
* New method "linarith" invokes existing linear arithmetic decision
wenzelm@31547
    38
procedure only.
haftmann@31481
    39
wenzelm@31900
    40
* Implementation of quickcheck using generic code generator; default
wenzelm@31900
    41
generators are provided for all suitable HOL types, records and
wenzelm@31900
    42
datatypes.
wenzelm@31900
    43
wenzelm@31900
    44
* Constants Set.Pow and Set.image now with authentic syntax;
wenzelm@31900
    45
object-logic definitions Set.Pow_def and Set.image_def.
wenzelm@31900
    46
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@31643
    47
nipkow@31790
    48
* Renamed theorems:
nipkow@31790
    49
Suc_eq_add_numeral_1 -> Suc_eq_plus1
nipkow@31790
    50
Suc_eq_add_numeral_1_left -> Suc_eq_plus1_left
nipkow@31790
    51
Suc_plus1 -> Suc_eq_plus1
nipkow@31790
    52
nipkow@31814
    53
* New sledgehammer option "Full Types" in Proof General settings menu.
wenzelm@31900
    54
Causes full type information to be output to the ATPs.  This slows
wenzelm@31900
    55
ATPs down considerably but eliminates a source of unsound "proofs"
wenzelm@31900
    56
that fail later.
wenzelm@31900
    57
wenzelm@31900
    58
* Discontinued ancient tradition to suffix certain ML module names
wenzelm@31900
    59
with "_package", e.g.:
haftmann@31723
    60
haftmann@31723
    61
    DatatypePackage ~> Datatype
haftmann@31723
    62
    InductivePackage ~> Inductive
haftmann@31723
    63
haftmann@31723
    64
    etc.
haftmann@31723
    65
haftmann@31723
    66
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@31723
    67
wenzelm@31900
    68
* NewNumberTheory: Jeremy Avigad's new version of part of
wenzelm@31900
    69
NumberTheory.  If possible, use NewNumberTheory, not NumberTheory.
haftmann@30949
    70
haftmann@31784
    71
* Simplified interfaces of datatype module.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@31784
    72
wenzelm@31900
    73
* Abbreviation "arbitrary" of "undefined" has disappeared; use
wenzelm@31900
    74
"undefined" directly.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@31900
    75
wenzelm@31900
    76
* New evaluator "approximate" approximates an real valued term using
wenzelm@31900
    77
the same method as the approximation method.
wenzelm@31900
    78
wenzelm@31900
    79
* Method "approximate" supports now arithmetic expressions as
wenzelm@31900
    80
boundaries of intervals and implements interval splitting and Taylor
wenzelm@31900
    81
series expansion.
wenzelm@31900
    82
wenzelm@31901
    83
* Changed DERIV_intros to a dynamic fact (via Named_Thms).  Each of
wenzelm@31900
    84
the theorems in DERIV_intros assumes composition with an additional
wenzelm@31900
    85
function and matches a variable to the derivative, which has to be
wenzelm@31900
    86
solved by the simplifier.  Hence (auto intro!: DERIV_intros) computes
wenzelm@31900
    87
the derivative of most elementary terms.
wenzelm@31900
    88
wenzelm@31900
    89
* Maclauren.DERIV_tac and Maclauren.deriv_tac was removed, they are
wenzelm@31900
    90
replaced by: (auto intro!: DERIV_intros).  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@31900

wenzelm@31304
    93
*** ML ***
wenzelm@31304
    94
wenzelm@31971
    95
* Renamed functor TableFun to Table, and GraphFun to Graph.  (Since
wenzelm@31971
    96
functors have their own ML name space there is no point to mark them
wenzelm@31971
    97
separately.)  Minor INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@31971
    98
wenzelm@31901
    99
* Renamed NamedThmsFun to Named_Thms.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@31901
   100
wenzelm@31306
   101
* Eliminated old Attrib.add_attributes, Method.add_methods and related
wenzelm@31306
   102
cominators for "args".  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to use simplified
wenzelm@31306
   103
Attrib/Method.setup introduced in Isabelle2009.
wenzelm@31304
   104
wenzelm@31304
   105
wenzelm@31308
   106
*** System ***
wenzelm@31308
   107
wenzelm@31308
   108
* Discontinued support for Poly/ML 4.x versions.
wenzelm@31308
   109
wenzelm@31317
   110
* Removed "compress" option from isabelle-process and isabelle usedir;
wenzelm@31317
   111
this is always enabled.
wenzelm@31317

New in Isabelle2009 (April 2009)
wenzelm@30845

--------------------------------
haftmann@27104
   117
wenzelm@27599
   118
*** General ***
wenzelm@27599
   119
wenzelm@28504
   120
* Simplified main Isabelle executables, with less surprises on
wenzelm@28504
   121
case-insensitive file-systems (such as Mac OS).
wenzelm@28504
   122
wenzelm@28504
   123
  - The main Isabelle tool wrapper is now called "isabelle" instead of
wenzelm@28504
   124
    "isatool."
wenzelm@28504
   125
wenzelm@28504
   126
  - The former "isabelle" alias for "isabelle-process" has been
wenzelm@28504
   127
    removed (should rarely occur to regular users).
wenzelm@28504
   128
wenzelm@28915
   129
  - The former "isabelle-interface" and its alias "Isabelle" have been
wenzelm@28915
   130
    removed (interfaces are now regular Isabelle tools).
wenzelm@28504
   131
wenzelm@28504
   132
Within scripts and make files, the Isabelle environment variables
wenzelm@28504
   133
ISABELLE_TOOL and ISABELLE_PROCESS replace old ISATOOL and ISABELLE,
wenzelm@28504
   134
respectively.  (The latter are still available as legacy feature.)
wenzelm@28504
   135
wenzelm@28915
   136
The old isabelle-interface wrapper could react in confusing ways if
wenzelm@28915
   137
the interface was uninstalled or changed otherwise.  Individual
wenzelm@28915
   138
interface tool configuration is now more explicit, see also the
wenzelm@28915
   139
Isabelle system manual.  In particular, Proof General is now available
wenzelm@28915
   140
via "isabelle emacs".
wenzelm@28504
   141
wenzelm@28504
   142
INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt derivative scripts.  Users may need to
wenzelm@28504
   143
purge installed copies of Isabelle executables and re-run "isabelle
wenzelm@28504
   144
install -p ...", or use symlinks.
wenzelm@28504
   145
wenzelm@28914
   146
* The default for ISABELLE_HOME_USER is now ~/.isabelle instead of the
wenzelm@30845
   147
old ~/isabelle, which was slightly non-standard and apt to cause
wenzelm@30845
   148
surprises on case-insensitive file-systems (such as Mac OS).
wenzelm@28914
   149
wenzelm@28914
   150
INCOMPATIBILITY, need to move existing ~/isabelle/etc,
wenzelm@28914
   151
~/isabelle/heaps, ~/isabelle/browser_info to the new place.  Special
wenzelm@28914
   152
care is required when using older releases of Isabelle.  Note that
wenzelm@28914
   153
ISABELLE_HOME_USER can be changed in Isabelle/etc/settings of any
wenzelm@30845
   154
Isabelle distribution, in order to use the new ~/.isabelle uniformly.
wenzelm@28914
   155
wenzelm@29161
   156
* Proofs of fully specified statements are run in parallel on
wenzelm@30845
   157
multi-core systems.  A speedup factor of 2.5 to 3.2 can be expected on
wenzelm@30845
   158
a regular 4-core machine, if the initial heap space is made reasonably
wenzelm@30845
   159
large (cf. Poly/ML option -H).  (Requires Poly/ML 5.2.1 or later.)
wenzelm@30845
   160
wenzelm@30845
   161
* The main reference manuals ("isar-ref", "implementation", and
wenzelm@30845
   162
"system") have been updated and extended.  Formally checked references
wenzelm@30845
   163
as hyperlinks are now available uniformly.
wenzelm@30845
   164
wenzelm@30163
   165
wenzelm@27599
   166
*** Pure ***
wenzelm@27599
   167
wenzelm@30845
   168
* Complete re-implementation of locales.  INCOMPATIBILITY in several
wenzelm@30845
   169
respects.  The most important changes are listed below.  See the
wenzelm@30845
   170
Tutorial on Locales ("locales" manual) for details.
ballarin@29253
   171
ballarin@29253
   172
- In locale expressions, instantiation replaces renaming.  Parameters
ballarin@29253
   173
must be declared in a for clause.  To aid compatibility with previous
ballarin@29253
   174
parameter inheritance, in locale declarations, parameters that are not
ballarin@29253
   175
'touched' (instantiation position "_" or omitted) are implicitly added
ballarin@29253
   176
with their syntax at the beginning of the for clause.
ballarin@29253
   177
ballarin@29253
   178
- Syntax from abbreviations and definitions in locales is available in
ballarin@29253
   179
locale expressions and context elements.  The latter is particularly
ballarin@29253
   180
useful in locale declarations.
ballarin@29253
   181
ballarin@29253
   182
- More flexible mechanisms to qualify names generated by locale
ballarin@29253
   183
expressions.  Qualifiers (prefixes) may be specified in locale
wenzelm@30728
   184
expressions, and can be marked as mandatory (syntax: "name!:") or
wenzelm@30728
   185
optional (syntax "name?:").  The default depends for plain "name:"
wenzelm@30728
   186
depends on the situation where a locale expression is used: in
wenzelm@30728
   187
commands 'locale' and 'sublocale' prefixes are optional, in
wenzelm@30845
   188
'interpretation' and 'interpret' prefixes are mandatory.  The old
wenzelm@30728
   189
implicit qualifiers derived from the parameter names of a locale are
wenzelm@30728
   190
no longer generated.
wenzelm@30106
   191
wenzelm@30845
   192
- Command "sublocale l < e" replaces "interpretation l < e".  The
wenzelm@30106
   193
instantiation clause in "interpretation" and "interpret" (square
wenzelm@30106
   194
brackets) is no longer available.  Use locale expressions.
ballarin@29253
   195
wenzelm@30845
   196
- When converting proof scripts, mandatory qualifiers in
wenzelm@30728
   197
'interpretation' and 'interpret' should be retained by default, even
wenzelm@30845
   198
if this is an INCOMPATIBILITY compared to former behavior.  In the
wenzelm@30845
   199
worst case, use the "name?:" form for non-mandatory ones.  Qualifiers
wenzelm@30845
   200
in locale expressions range over a single locale instance only.
wenzelm@30845
   201
wenzelm@30845
   202
- Dropped locale element "includes".  This is a major INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   203
In existing theorem specifications replace the includes element by the
wenzelm@30845
   204
respective context elements of the included locale, omitting those
wenzelm@30845
   205
that are already present in the theorem specification.  Multiple
wenzelm@30845
   206
assume elements of a locale should be replaced by a single one
wenzelm@30845
   207
involving the locale predicate.  In the proof body, declarations (most
wenzelm@30845
   208
notably theorems) may be regained by interpreting the respective
wenzelm@30845
   209
locales in the proof context as required (command "interpret").
wenzelm@30845
   210
wenzelm@30845
   211
If using "includes" in replacement of a target solely because the
wenzelm@30845
   212
parameter types in the theorem are not as general as in the target,
wenzelm@30845
   213
consider declaring a new locale with additional type constraints on
wenzelm@30845
   214
the parameters (context element "constrains").
wenzelm@30845
   215
wenzelm@30845
   216
- Discontinued "locale (open)".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   217
wenzelm@30845
   218
- Locale interpretation commands no longer attempt to simplify goal.
wenzelm@30845
   219
INCOMPATIBILITY: in rare situations the generated goal differs.  Use
wenzelm@30845
   220
methods intro_locales and unfold_locales to clarify.
wenzelm@30845
   221
wenzelm@30845
   222
- Locale interpretation commands no longer accept interpretation
wenzelm@30845
   223
attributes.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   224
wenzelm@30845
   225
* Class declaration: so-called "base sort" must not be given in import
wenzelm@30845
   226
list any longer, but is inferred from the specification.  Particularly
wenzelm@30845
   227
in HOL, write
wenzelm@30845
   228
wenzelm@30845
   229
    class foo = ...
wenzelm@30845
   230
wenzelm@30845
   231
instead of
wenzelm@30845
   232
wenzelm@30845
   233
    class foo = type + ...
wenzelm@30845
   234
wenzelm@30845
   235
* Class target: global versions of theorems stemming do not carry a
wenzelm@30845
   236
parameter prefix any longer.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   237
wenzelm@30845
   238
* Class 'instance' command no longer accepts attached definitions.
wenzelm@30845
   239
INCOMPATIBILITY, use proper 'instantiation' target instead.
wenzelm@30845
   240
wenzelm@30845
   241
* Recovered hiding of consts, which was accidentally broken in
wenzelm@30845
   242
Isabelle2007.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY, ``hide const c'' really
wenzelm@30845
   243
makes c inaccessible; consider using ``hide (open) const c'' instead.
wenzelm@30845
   244
wenzelm@30845
   245
* Slightly more coherent Pure syntax, with updated documentation in
wenzelm@30845
   246
isar-ref manual.  Removed locales meta_term_syntax and
wenzelm@30845
   247
meta_conjunction_syntax: TERM and &&& (formerly &&) are now permanent,
wenzelm@30845
   248
INCOMPATIBILITY in rare situations.  Note that &&& should not be used
wenzelm@30845
   249
directly in regular applications.
wenzelm@30845
   250
wenzelm@30845
   251
* There is a new syntactic category "float_const" for signed decimal
wenzelm@30845
   252
fractions (e.g. 123.45 or -123.45).
wenzelm@30845
   253
wenzelm@30845
   254
* Removed exotic 'token_translation' command.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use ML
wenzelm@30845
   255
interface with 'setup' command instead.
wenzelm@30845
   256
wenzelm@30845
   257
* Command 'local_setup' is similar to 'setup', but operates on a local
wenzelm@30845
   258
theory context.
haftmann@27104
   259
wenzelm@28114
   260
* The 'axiomatization' command now only works within a global theory
wenzelm@28114
   261
context.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@28114
   262
wenzelm@30845
   263
* Goal-directed proof now enforces strict proof irrelevance wrt. sort
wenzelm@30845
   264
hypotheses.  Sorts required in the course of reasoning need to be
wenzelm@30845
   265
covered by the constraints in the initial statement, completed by the
wenzelm@30845
   266
type instance information of the background theory.  Non-trivial sort
wenzelm@30845
   267
hypotheses, which rarely occur in practice, may be specified via
wenzelm@30845
   268
vacuous propositions of the form SORT_CONSTRAINT('a::c).  For example:
wenzelm@30845
   269
wenzelm@30845
   270
  lemma assumes "SORT_CONSTRAINT('a::empty)" shows False ...
wenzelm@30845
   271
wenzelm@30845
   272
The result contains an implicit sort hypotheses as before --
wenzelm@30845
   273
SORT_CONSTRAINT premises are eliminated as part of the canonical rule
wenzelm@30845
   274
normalization.
wenzelm@30845
   275
wenzelm@30845
   276
* Generalized Isar history, with support for linear undo, direct state
wenzelm@30845
   277
addressing etc.
wenzelm@30845
   278
wenzelm@30845
   279
* Changed defaults for unify configuration options:
wenzelm@30845
   280
wenzelm@30845
   281
  unify_trace_bound = 50 (formerly 25)
wenzelm@30845
   282
  unify_search_bound = 60 (formerly 30)
wenzelm@30845
   283
wenzelm@30845
   284
* Different bookkeeping for code equations (INCOMPATIBILITY):
wenzelm@30845
   285
wenzelm@30845
   286
  a) On theory merge, the last set of code equations for a particular
wenzelm@30845
   287
     constant is taken (in accordance with the policy applied by other
wenzelm@30845
   288
     parts of the code generator framework).
wenzelm@30845
   289
wenzelm@30845
   290
  b) Code equations stemming from explicit declarations (e.g. code
wenzelm@30845
   291
     attribute) gain priority over default code equations stemming
wenzelm@30845
   292
     from definition, primrec, fun etc.
wenzelm@30845
   293
wenzelm@30845
   294
* Keyword 'code_exception' now named 'code_abort'.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   295
haftmann@30965
   296
* Unified theorem tables for both code generators.  Thus [code
wenzelm@30845
   297
func] has disappeared and only [code] remains.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30577
   298
wenzelm@30577
   299
* Command 'find_consts' searches for constants based on type and name
wenzelm@30577
   300
patterns, e.g.
kleing@29883
   301
kleing@29883
   302
    find_consts "_ => bool"
kleing@29883
   303
wenzelm@30106
   304
By default, matching is against subtypes, but it may be restricted to
wenzelm@30728
   305
the whole type.  Searching by name is possible.  Multiple queries are
wenzelm@30106
   306
conjunctive and queries may be negated by prefixing them with a
wenzelm@30106
   307
hyphen:
kleing@29883
   308
kleing@29883
   309
    find_consts strict: "_ => bool" name: "Int" -"int => int"
kleing@29861
   310
wenzelm@30845
   311
* New 'find_theorems' criterion "solves" matches theorems that
wenzelm@30845
   312
directly solve the current goal (modulo higher-order unification).
wenzelm@30845
   313
wenzelm@30845
   314
* Auto solve feature for main theorem statements: whenever a new goal
wenzelm@30845
   315
is stated, "find_theorems solves" is called; any theorems that could
wenzelm@30845
   316
solve the lemma directly are listed as part of the goal state.
wenzelm@30845
   317
Cf. associated options in Proof General Isabelle settings menu,
wenzelm@30845
   318
enabled by default, with reasonable timeout for pathological cases of
wenzelm@30845
   319
higher-order unification.

   324
* Antiquotation @{lemma} now imitates a regular terminal proof,
wenzelm@27392
   325
demanding keyword 'by' and supporting the full method expression
wenzelm@27519
   326
syntax just like the Isar command 'by'.

*** HOL ***
haftmann@27104
   330
wenzelm@30845
   331
* Integrated main parts of former image HOL-Complex with HOL.  Entry
wenzelm@30845
   332
points Main and Complex_Main remain as before.
wenzelm@30845
   333
wenzelm@30845
   334
* Logic image HOL-Plain provides a minimal HOL with the most important
wenzelm@30845
   335
tools available (inductive, datatype, primrec, ...).  This facilitates
wenzelm@30845
   336
experimentation and tool development.  Note that user applications
wenzelm@30845
   337
(and library theories) should never refer to anything below theory
wenzelm@30845
   338
Main, as before.
wenzelm@30845
   339
wenzelm@30845
   340
* Logic image HOL-Main stops at theory Main, and thus facilitates
wenzelm@30845
   341
experimentation due to shorter build times.
wenzelm@30845
   342
wenzelm@30845
   343
* Logic image HOL-NSA contains theories of nonstandard analysis which
wenzelm@30845
   344
were previously part of former HOL-Complex.  Entry point Hyperreal
wenzelm@30845
   345
remains valid, but theories formerly using Complex_Main should now use
wenzelm@30845
   346
new entry point Hypercomplex.
wenzelm@30845
   347
wenzelm@30845
   348
* Generic ATP manager for Sledgehammer, based on ML threads instead of
wenzelm@30845
   349
Posix processes.  Avoids potentially expensive forking of the ML
wenzelm@30845
   350
process.  New thread-based implementation also works on non-Unix
wenzelm@30845
   351
platforms (Cygwin).  Provers are no longer hardwired, but defined
wenzelm@30845
   352
within the theory via plain ML wrapper functions.  Basic Sledgehammer
wenzelm@30845
   353
commands are covered in the isar-ref manual.
wenzelm@30845
   354
wenzelm@30845
   355
* Wrapper scripts for remote SystemOnTPTP service allows to use
wenzelm@30845
   356
sledgehammer without local ATP installation (Vampire etc.). Other
wenzelm@30845
   357
provers may be included via suitable ML wrappers, see also
wenzelm@30845
   358
src/HOL/ATP_Linkup.thy.
wenzelm@30845
   359
wenzelm@30845
   360
* ATP selection (E/Vampire/Spass) is now via Proof General's settings
wenzelm@30845
   361
menu.
wenzelm@30845
   362
wenzelm@30845
   363
* The metis method no longer fails because the theorem is too trivial
wenzelm@30845
   364
(contains the empty clause).
wenzelm@30845
   365
wenzelm@30845
   366
* The metis method now fails in the usual manner, rather than raising
wenzelm@30845
   367
an exception, if it determines that it cannot prove the theorem.
wenzelm@30845
   368
wenzelm@30845
   369
* Method "coherent" implements a prover for coherent logic (see also
wenzelm@30845
   370
src/Tools/coherent.ML).
wenzelm@30845
   371
wenzelm@30845
   372
* Constants "undefined" and "default" replace "arbitrary".  Usually
wenzelm@30845
   373
"undefined" is the right choice to replace "arbitrary", though
wenzelm@30845
   374
logically there is no difference.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   375
wenzelm@30845
   376
* Command "value" now integrates different evaluation mechanisms.  The
wenzelm@30845
   377
result of the first successful evaluation mechanism is printed.  In
wenzelm@30845
   378
square brackets a particular named evaluation mechanisms may be
wenzelm@30845
   379
specified (currently, [SML], [code] or [nbe]).  See further
wenzelm@30845
   380
src/HOL/ex/Eval_Examples.thy.
wenzelm@30845
   381
wenzelm@30845
   382
* Normalization by evaluation now allows non-leftlinear equations.
wenzelm@30845
   383
Declare with attribute [code nbe].
wenzelm@30845
   384
wenzelm@30845
   385
* Methods "case_tac" and "induct_tac" now refer to the very same rules
wenzelm@30845
   386
as the structured Isar versions "cases" and "induct", cf. the
wenzelm@30845
   387
corresponding "cases" and "induct" attributes.  Mutual induction rules
wenzelm@30845
   388
are now presented as a list of individual projections
wenzelm@30845
   389
(e.g. foo_bar.inducts for types foo and bar); the old format with
wenzelm@30845
   390
explicit HOL conjunction is no longer supported.  INCOMPATIBILITY, in
wenzelm@30845
   391
rare situations a different rule is selected --- notably nested tuple
wenzelm@30845
   392
elimination instead of former prod.exhaust: use explicit (case_tac t
wenzelm@30845
   393
rule: prod.exhaust) here.
wenzelm@30845
   394
wenzelm@30845
   395
* Attributes "cases", "induct", "coinduct" support "del" option.
wenzelm@30845
   396
wenzelm@30845
   397
* Removed fact "case_split_thm", which duplicates "case_split".
wenzelm@30845
   398
wenzelm@30845
   399
* The option datatype has been moved to a new theory Option.  Renamed
wenzelm@30845
   400
option_map to Option.map, and o2s to Option.set, INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   401
wenzelm@30845
   402
* New predicate "strict_mono" classifies strict functions on partial
wenzelm@30845
   403
orders.  With strict functions on linear orders, reasoning about
wenzelm@30845
   404
(in)equalities is facilitated by theorems "strict_mono_eq",
wenzelm@30845
   405
"strict_mono_less_eq" and "strict_mono_less".
wenzelm@30845
   406
wenzelm@30845
   407
* Some set operations are now proper qualified constants with

wenzelm@30845
   429
wenzelm@30845

method "approximation".  It proves formulas on real values by using
wenzelm@30845
   432
interval arithmetic.  In the formulas are also the transcendental
wenzelm@30845
   433
functions sin, cos, tan, atan, ln, exp and the constant pi are
wenzelm@30845

   499
possible), avoiding strange error messages.
wenzelm@30845

   503
src/HOL/ex/Termination.thy for examples.
wenzelm@30845
   504
wenzelm@30845
   505
* Simplifier: simproc for let expressions now unfolds if bound

   506
variable occurs at most once in let expression body.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   507
wenzelm@30845
   508
* Method "arith": Linear arithmetic now ignores all inequalities when
wenzelm@30845

fast_arith_neq_limit is exceeded, instead of giving up entirely.
wenzelm@30845
   510
wenzelm@30845
   511
* New attribute "arith" for facts that should always be used
wenzelm@30845
   512
automatically by arithmetic. It is intended to be used locally in
wenzelm@30845
   513
proofs, e.g.

"bot" in theory Orderings; instantiation of class "complete_lattice"
wenzelm@30845

requires instantiation of classes "top" and "bot".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   522
wenzelm@30845
   523
* Changed definition lemma "less_fun_def" in order to provide an

   525
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845

wenzelm@30845
   527
* Theory Orderings: class "wellorder" moved here, with explicit
wenzelm@30845

induction rule "less_induct" as assumption.  For instantiation of
wenzelm@30845
   529
"wellorder" by means of predicate "wf", use rule wf_wellorderI.
wenzelm@30845
   530
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   531
wenzelm@30845
   532
* Theory Orderings: added class "preorder" as superclass of "order".
wenzelm@27793
   533
INCOMPATIBILITY: Instantiation proofs for order, linorder
wenzelm@27793
   534
etc. slightly changed.  Some theorems named order_class.* now named

   535
preorder_class.*.

computations.  The concept of "synchronized variables" provides a
wenzelm@29161
   792
higher-order interface for components with shared state, avoiding the
wenzelm@30845
   793
delicate details of mutexes and condition variables.  (Requires
wenzelm@30845
   794
Poly/ML 5.2.1 or later.)
wenzelm@30845
   795
wenzelm@30845
   796
* ML bindings produced via Isar commands are stored within the Isar
wenzelm@30845
   797
context (theory or proof).  Consequently, commands like 'use' and 'ML'
wenzelm@30845
   798
become thread-safe and work with undo as expected (concerning
wenzelm@30845
   799
top-level bindings, not side-effects on global references).
wenzelm@30845
   800
INCOMPATIBILITY, need to provide proper Isar context when invoking the
wenzelm@30845
   801
compiler at runtime; really global bindings need to be given outside a
wenzelm@30845
   802
theory.  (Requires Poly/ML 5.2 or later.)
wenzelm@30845
   803
wenzelm@30845
   804
* Command 'ML_prf' is analogous to 'ML' but works within a proof
wenzelm@30845
   805
context.  Top-level ML bindings are stored within the proof context in
wenzelm@30845
   806
a purely sequential fashion, disregarding the nested proof structure.
wenzelm@30845
   807
ML bindings introduced by 'ML_prf' are discarded at the end of the
wenzelm@30845
   808
proof.  (Requires Poly/ML 5.2 or later.)
wenzelm@29161
   809
wenzelm@30530
   810
* Simplified ML attribute and method setup, cf. functions Attrib.setup
wenzelm@30845
   811
and Method.setup, as well as Isar commands 'attribute_setup' and
wenzelm@30547
   812
'method_setup'.  INCOMPATIBILITY for 'method_setup', need to simplify
wenzelm@30547
   813
existing code accordingly, or use plain 'setup' together with old
wenzelm@30547
   814
Method.add_method.
wenzelm@30530
   815
wenzelm@28294
   816
* Simplified ML oracle interface Thm.add_oracle promotes 'a -> cterm
wenzelm@28294
   817
to 'a -> thm, while results are always tagged with an authentic oracle
wenzelm@28294
   818
name.  The Isar command 'oracle' is now polymorphic, no argument type
wenzelm@28294
   819
is specified.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to simplify existing oracle code
wenzelm@28294
   820
accordingly.  Note that extra performance may be gained by producing
wenzelm@28294
   821
the cterm carefully, avoiding slow Thm.cterm_of.
wenzelm@28294
   822
wenzelm@30845
   823
* Simplified interface for defining document antiquotations via
wenzelm@30845
   824
ThyOutput.antiquotation, ThyOutput.output, and optionally
wenzelm@30845
   825
ThyOutput.maybe_pretty_source.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to simplify user
wenzelm@30845
   826
antiquotations accordingly, see src/Pure/Thy/thy_output.ML for common
wenzelm@30845
   827
examples.
wenzelm@28099
   828
wenzelm@30395
   829
* More systematic treatment of long names, abstract name bindings, and
wenzelm@30395
   830
name space operations.  Basic operations on qualified names have been
wenzelm@30399
   831
move from structure NameSpace to Long_Name, e.g. Long_Name.base_name,
wenzelm@30395
   832
Long_Name.append.  Old type bstring has been mostly replaced by
wenzelm@30395
   833
abstract type binding (see structure Binding), which supports precise
wenzelm@30845
   834
qualification by packages and local theory targets, as well as proper
wenzelm@30845
   835
tracking of source positions.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to wrap old
wenzelm@30845
   836
bstring values into Binding.name, or better pass through abstract
wenzelm@30399
   837
bindings everywhere.  See further src/Pure/General/long_name.ML,
wenzelm@30395
   838
src/Pure/General/binding.ML and src/Pure/General/name_space.ML
wenzelm@30395
   839
wenzelm@28089
   840
* Result facts (from PureThy.note_thms, ProofContext.note_thms,
wenzelm@28089
   841
LocalTheory.note etc.) now refer to the *full* internal name, not the
wenzelm@28089
   842
bstring as before.  INCOMPATIBILITY, not detected by ML type-checking!
wenzelm@28089
   843
wenzelm@27287
   844
* Disposed old type and term read functions (Sign.read_def_typ,
wenzelm@27287
   845
Sign.read_typ, Sign.read_def_terms, Sign.read_term,
wenzelm@27287
   846
Thm.read_def_cterms, Thm.read_cterm etc.).  INCOMPATIBILITY, should
wenzelm@27287
   847
use regular Syntax.read_typ, Syntax.read_term, Syntax.read_typ_global,
wenzelm@27269
   848
Syntax.read_term_global etc.; see also OldGoals.read_term as last
wenzelm@27269
   849
resort for legacy applications.
wenzelm@27269
   850
wenzelm@30609
   851
* Disposed old declarations, tactics, tactic combinators that refer to
wenzelm@30609
   852
the simpset or claset of an implicit theory (such as Addsimps,
wenzelm@30609
   853
Simp_tac, SIMPSET).  INCOMPATIBILITY, should use @{simpset} etc. in
wenzelm@30609
   854
embedded ML text, or local_simpset_of with a proper context passed as
wenzelm@30609
   855
explicit runtime argument.
wenzelm@30609
   856
wenzelm@30845
   857
* Rules and tactics that read instantiations (read_instantiate,
wenzelm@30845
   858
res_inst_tac, thin_tac, subgoal_tac etc.) now demand a proper proof
wenzelm@30845
   859
context, which is required for parsing and type-checking.  Moreover,
wenzelm@30845
   860
the variables are specified as plain indexnames, not string encodings
wenzelm@30845
   861
thereof.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   862
wenzelm@30845
   863
* Generic Toplevel.add_hook interface allows to analyze the result of
wenzelm@30845
   864
transactions.  E.g. see src/Pure/ProofGeneral/proof_general_pgip.ML
wenzelm@30845
   865
for theorem dependency output of transactions resulting in a new
wenzelm@30845
   866
theory state.
wenzelm@30845
   867
wenzelm@30845
   868
* ML antiquotations: block-structured compilation context indicated by
wenzelm@27391
   869
\<lbrace> ... \<rbrace>; additional antiquotation forms:
wenzelm@27391
   870
wenzelm@30845
   871
  @{binding name}                         - basic name binding
wenzelm@27519
   872
  @{let ?pat = term}                      - term abbreviation (HO matching)
wenzelm@27519
   873
  @{note name = fact}                     - fact abbreviation
wenzelm@27519
   874
  @{thm fact}                             - singleton fact (with attributes)
wenzelm@27519
   875
  @{thms fact}                            - general fact (with attributes)
wenzelm@27519
   876
  @{lemma prop by method}                 - singleton goal
wenzelm@27519
   877
  @{lemma prop by meth1 meth2}            - singleton goal
wenzelm@27519
   878
  @{lemma prop1 ... propN by method}      - general goal
wenzelm@27519
   879
  @{lemma prop1 ... propN by meth1 meth2} - general goal
wenzelm@27519
   880
  @{lemma (open) ...}                     - open derivation

*** System ***
wenzelm@27979
   884
wenzelm@28248
   885
* The Isabelle "emacs" tool provides a specific interface to invoke
wenzelm@28248
   886
Proof General / Emacs, with more explicit failure if that is not
wenzelm@28248
   887
installed (the old isabelle-interface script silently falls back on
wenzelm@28248
   888
isabelle-process).  The PROOFGENERAL_HOME setting determines the
wenzelm@28248
   889
installation location of the Proof General distribution.
wenzelm@28248
   890
wenzelm@27979
   891
* Isabelle/lib/classes/Pure.jar provides basic support to integrate
wenzelm@27979
   892
the Isabelle process into a JVM/Scala application.  See
wenzelm@27979
   893
Isabelle/lib/jedit/plugin for a minimal example.  (The obsolete Java
wenzelm@27979
   894
process wrapper has been discontinued.)
wenzelm@27979
   895
wenzelm@30845
   896
* Added homegrown Isabelle font with unicode layout, see lib/fonts.
wenzelm@30845
   897
wenzelm@30845
   898
* Various status messages (with exact source position information) are
wenzelm@27979
   899
emitted, if proper markup print mode is enabled.  This allows
wenzelm@27979
   900
user-interface components to provide detailed feedback on internal
wenzelm@27979
   901
prover operations.

*** General ***
wenzelm@25522
   909
wenzelm@27061
   910
* The Isabelle/Isar Reference Manual (isar-ref) has been reorganized
wenzelm@27061
   911
and updated, with formally checked references as hyperlinks.
wenzelm@27061
   912
wenzelm@25994
   913
* Theory loader: use_thy (and similar operations) no longer set the
wenzelm@25994
   914
implicit ML context, which was occasionally hard to predict and in
wenzelm@25994
   915
conflict with concurrency.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use ML within Isar which
wenzelm@25994
   916
provides a proper context already.
wenzelm@25994
   917
wenzelm@26323
   918
* Theory loader: old-style ML proof scripts being *attached* to a thy
wenzelm@26323
   919
file are no longer supported.  INCOMPATIBILITY, regular 'uses' and
wenzelm@26323
   920
'use' within a theory file will do the job.
wenzelm@26323
   921
wenzelm@26650
   922
* Name space merge now observes canonical order, i.e. the second space
wenzelm@26650
   923
is inserted into the first one, while existing entries in the first
wenzelm@26659
   924
space take precedence.  INCOMPATIBILITY in rare situations, may try to
wenzelm@26650
   925
swap theory imports.
wenzelm@26650
   926
wenzelm@27067
   927
* Syntax: symbol \<chi> is now considered a letter.  Potential
wenzelm@27067
   928
INCOMPATIBILITY in identifier syntax etc.
wenzelm@27067
   929
wenzelm@27067
   930
* Outer syntax: string tokens no longer admit escaped white space,
wenzelm@27067
   931
which was an accidental (undocumented) feature.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use
wenzelm@27067
   932
white space without escapes.
wenzelm@27067
   933
wenzelm@27067
   934
* Outer syntax: string tokens may contain arbitrary character codes
wenzelm@27067
   935
specified via 3 decimal digits (as in SML).  E.g. "foo\095bar" for
wenzelm@27067
   936
"foo_bar".

* Context-dependent token translations.  Default setup reverts locally
wenzelm@26718
   942
fixed variables, and adds hilite markup for undeclared frees.
wenzelm@26718
   943
berghofe@26681
   944
* Unused theorems can be found using the new command 'unused_thms'.
berghofe@26681
   945
There are three ways of invoking it:
berghofe@26681
   946
berghofe@26681
   947
(1) unused_thms
berghofe@26681
   948
     Only finds unused theorems in the current theory.
berghofe@26681
   949
berghofe@26681
   950
(2) unused_thms thy_1 ... thy_n -
berghofe@26681
   951
     Finds unused theorems in the current theory and all of its ancestors,
berghofe@26681
   952
     excluding the theories thy_1 ... thy_n and all of their ancestors.
berghofe@26681
   953
berghofe@26681
   954
(3) unused_thms thy_1 ... thy_n - thy'_1 ... thy'_m
berghofe@26681
   955
     Finds unused theorems in the theories thy'_1 ... thy'_m and all of
berghofe@26681
   956
     their ancestors, excluding the theories thy_1 ... thy_n and all of
berghofe@26681
   957
     their ancestors.
berghofe@26681
   958
wenzelm@26718
   959
In order to increase the readability of the list produced by
wenzelm@26718
   960
unused_thms, theorems that have been created by a particular instance
wenzelm@26874
   961
of a theory command such as 'inductive' or 'function' are considered
wenzelm@26874
   962
to belong to the same "group", meaning that if at least one theorem in
wenzelm@26718
   963
this group is used, the other theorems in the same group are no longer
wenzelm@26718
   964
reported as unused.  Moreover, if all theorems in the group are
wenzelm@26718
   965
unused, only one theorem in the group is displayed.
wenzelm@26718
   966
wenzelm@26718
   967
Note that proof objects have to be switched on in order for
wenzelm@26718
   968
unused_thms to work properly (i.e. !proofs must be >= 1, which is
wenzelm@26874
   969
usually the case when using Proof General with the default settings).
berghofe@26681
   970
wenzelm@26650
   971
* Authentic naming of facts disallows ad-hoc overwriting of previous
wenzelm@26650
   972
theorems within the same name space.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to remove
wenzelm@26650
   973
duplicate fact bindings, or even accidental fact duplications.  Note
wenzelm@26650
   974
that tools may maintain dynamically scoped facts systematically, using
wenzelm@26650
   975
PureThy.add_thms_dynamic.
wenzelm@26650
   976
wenzelm@26660
   977
* Command 'hide' now allows to hide from "fact" name space as well.
wenzelm@26660
   978
wenzelm@26496
   979
* Eliminated destructive theorem database, simpset, claset, and
wenzelm@26496
   980
clasimpset.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY, really need to observe linear
wenzelm@26496
   981
update of theories within ML code.
wenzelm@26479
   982
wenzelm@26955
   983
* Eliminated theory ProtoPure and CPure, leaving just one Pure theory.
wenzelm@26955
   984
INCOMPATIBILITY, object-logics depending on former Pure require
wenzelm@26955
   985
additional setup PureThy.old_appl_syntax_setup; object-logics
wenzelm@26955
   986
depending on former CPure need to refer to Pure.
wenzelm@26650
   987
wenzelm@26495
   988
* Commands 'use' and 'ML' are now purely functional, operating on
wenzelm@26479
   989
theory/local_theory.  Removed former 'ML_setup' (on theory), use 'ML'
wenzelm@26479
   990
instead.  Added 'ML_val' as mere diagnostic replacement for 'ML'.
wenzelm@26479
   991
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@26479
   992
wenzelm@26874
   993
* Command 'setup': discontinued implicit version with ML reference.
wenzelm@26434
   994
wenzelm@25970
   995
* Instantiation target allows for simultaneous specification of class
wenzelm@25970
   996
instance operations together with an instantiation proof.
wenzelm@25970
   997
Type-checking phase allows to refer to class operations uniformly.

wenzelm@26201
  1002
facts from the visible specification/proof context, but not the
wenzelm@26201
  1003
background context (locale etc.).  Affects `prop` notation and method
wenzelm@26201
  1004
"fact".  INCOMPATIBILITY: need to name facts explicitly in rare
wenzelm@26201
  1005
situations.
wenzelm@26201
  1006
wenzelm@26925
  1007
* Method "cases", "induct", "coinduct": removed obsolete/undocumented
wenzelm@26925
  1008
"(open)" option, which used to expose internal bound variables to the
wenzelm@26925
  1009
proof text.
wenzelm@26925
  1010
wenzelm@26925
  1011
* Isar statements: removed obsolete case "rule_context".
wenzelm@26925
  1012
INCOMPATIBILITY, better use explicit fixes/assumes.
wenzelm@26925
  1013
wenzelm@26874
  1014
* Locale proofs: default proof step now includes 'unfold_locales';
wenzelm@26874
  1015
hence 'proof' without argument may be used to unfold locale
wenzelm@26874
  1016
predicates.

* Simplified pdfsetup.sty: color/hyperref is used unconditionally for
wenzelm@26914
  1022
both pdf and dvi (hyperlinks usually work in xdvi as well); removed
wenzelm@26914
  1023
obsolete thumbpdf setup (contemporary PDF viewers do this on the
wenzelm@26914
  1024
spot); renamed link color from "darkblue" to "linkcolor" (default
wenzelm@26920
  1025
value unchanged, can be redefined via \definecolor); no longer sets

wenzelm@27008
  1029

* Method "induct_scheme" derives user-specified induction rules
wenzelm@27067
  1055
from well-founded induction and completeness of patterns. This factors
wenzelm@27067
  1056
out some operations that are done internally by the function package
wenzelm@27067
  1057
and makes them available separately.  See

* More flexible generation of measure functions for termination
wenzelm@27067
  1061
proofs: Measure functions can be declared by proving a rule of the
wenzelm@27067
  1062
form "is_measure f" and giving it the [measure_function] attribute.
wenzelm@27067
  1063
The "is_measure" predicate is logically meaningless (always true), and
wenzelm@27067
  1064
just guides the heuristic.  To find suitable measure functions, the
wenzelm@27067
  1065
termination prover sets up the goal "is_measure ?f" of the appropriate
wenzelm@27067
  1066
type and generates all solutions by prolog-style backwards proof using
wenzelm@27067
  1067
the declared rules.
wenzelm@27067
  1068
wenzelm@27067
  1069
This setup also deals with rules like 
wenzelm@27067
  1070
wenzelm@27067
  1071
  "is_measure f ==> is_measure (list_size f)"
wenzelm@27067
  1072
wenzelm@27067
  1073
which accommodates nested datatypes that recurse through lists.
wenzelm@27067
  1074
Similar rules are predeclared for products and option types.

  - Due to the incompleteness of the HO unification algorithm, some

wenzelm@17754
  1331
*** General ***
wenzelm@17754
  1332
wenzelm@22826
  1333
* More uniform information about legacy features, notably a
wenzelm@22826
  1334
warning/error of "Legacy feature: ...", depending on the state of the
wenzelm@23367
  1335
tolerate_legacy_features flag (default true). FUTURE INCOMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@23367
  1336
legacy features will disappear eventually.
wenzelm@22826
  1337
wenzelm@17918
  1338
* Theory syntax: the header format ``theory A = B + C:'' has been
wenzelm@17918
  1339
discontinued in favour of ``theory A imports B C begin''.  Use isatool
wenzelm@17918
  1340
fixheaders to convert existing theory files.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17918
  1341
wenzelm@17918
  1342
* Theory syntax: the old non-Isar theory file format has been
wenzelm@17918
  1343
discontinued altogether.  Note that ML proof scripts may still be used
wenzelm@17918
  1344
with Isar theories; migration is usually quite simple with the ML
wenzelm@17918
  1345
function use_legacy_bindings.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17918
  1346
wenzelm@22871
  1347
* Theory syntax: some popular names (e.g. 'class', 'declaration',
wenzelm@22871
  1348
'fun', 'help', 'if') are now keywords.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use double
wenzelm@22871
  1349
quotes.
wenzelm@19814
  1350
wenzelm@23888
  1351
* Theory loader: be more serious about observing the static theory
wenzelm@23888
  1352
header specifications (including optional directories), but not the
wenzelm@24172
  1353
accidental file locations of previously successful loads.  The strict
wenzelm@24172
  1354
update policy of former update_thy is now already performed by
wenzelm@24172
  1355
use_thy, so the former has been removed; use_thys updates several
wenzelm@24172
  1356
theories simultaneously, just as 'imports' within a theory header
wenzelm@24172
  1357
specification, but without merging the results.  Potential
wenzelm@24172
  1358
INCOMPATIBILITY: may need to refine theory headers and commands
wenzelm@24172
  1359
ROOT.ML which depend on load order.
wenzelm@23888
  1360
wenzelm@23888
  1361
* Theory loader: optional support for content-based file
wenzelm@23888
  1362
identification, instead of the traditional scheme of full physical
wenzelm@23889
  1363
path plus date stamp; configured by the ISABELLE_FILE_IDENT setting
wenzelm@23888
  1364
(cf. the system manual).  The new scheme allows to work with
wenzelm@23888
  1365
non-finished theories in persistent session images, such that source
wenzelm@23888
  1366
files may be moved later on without requiring reloads.
wenzelm@23888
  1367
wenzelm@24187
  1368
* Theory loader: old-style ML proof scripts being *attached* to a thy
wenzelm@24187
  1369
file (with the same base name as the theory) are considered a legacy
wenzelm@24800
  1370
feature, which will disappear eventually. Even now, the theory loader
wenzelm@24800
  1371
no longer maintains dependencies on such files.
wenzelm@24800
  1372
wenzelm@24800
  1373
* Syntax: the scope for resolving ambiguities via type-inference is
wenzelm@24800
  1374
now limited to individual terms, instead of whole simultaneous
wenzelm@24234
  1375
specifications as before. This greatly reduces the complexity of the
wenzelm@24234
  1376
syntax module and improves flexibility by separating parsing and
wenzelm@24234
  1377
type-checking. INCOMPATIBILITY: additional type-constraints (explicit
wenzelm@24234
  1378
'fixes' etc.) are required in rare situations.
wenzelm@24234
  1379
wenzelm@25034
  1380
* Syntax: constants introduced by new-style packages ('definition',
wenzelm@25034
  1381
'abbreviation' etc.) are passed through the syntax module in
wenzelm@25034
  1382
``authentic mode''. This means that associated mixfix annotations
wenzelm@25034
  1383
really stick to such constants, independently of potential name space
wenzelm@25034
  1384
ambiguities introduced later on. INCOMPATIBILITY: constants in parse
wenzelm@25034
  1385
trees are represented slightly differently, may need to adapt syntax
wenzelm@25034
  1386
translations accordingly. Use CONST marker in 'translations' and
wenzelm@25034
  1387
@{const_syntax} antiquotation in 'parse_translation' etc.
wenzelm@25034
  1388
wenzelm@17981
  1389
* Legacy goal package: reduced interface to the bare minimum required
wenzelm@17981
  1390
to keep existing proof scripts running.  Most other user-level
wenzelm@17981
  1391
functions are now part of the OldGoals structure, which is *not* open
wenzelm@17981
  1392
by default (consider isatool expandshort before open OldGoals).
wenzelm@17981
  1393
Removed top_sg, prin, printyp, pprint_term/typ altogether, because
wenzelm@17981
  1394
these tend to cause confusion about the actual goal (!) context being
wenzelm@17981
  1395
used here, which is not necessarily the same as the_context().
wenzelm@17918
  1396
wenzelm@23379
  1397
* Command 'find_theorems': supports "*" wild-card in "name:"
wenzelm@23379
  1398
criterion; "with_dups" option.  Certain ProofGeneral versions might
wenzelm@23379
  1399
support a specific search form (see ProofGeneral/CHANGES).
webertj@22965
  1400
wenzelm@20370
  1401
* The ``prems limit'' option (cf. ProofContext.prems_limit) is now -1
wenzelm@20370
  1402
by default, which means that "prems" (and also "fixed variables") are
wenzelm@20370
  1403
suppressed from proof state output.  Note that the ProofGeneral
wenzelm@20370
  1404
settings mechanism allows to change and save options persistently, but
wenzelm@20370
  1405
older versions of Isabelle will fail to start up if a negative prems
wenzelm@20370
  1406
limit is imposed.
wenzelm@20370
  1407
wenzelm@21308
  1408
* Local theory targets may be specified by non-nested blocks of
wenzelm@21308
  1409
``context/locale/class ... begin'' followed by ``end''.  The body may
wenzelm@21308
  1410
contain definitions, theorems etc., including any derived mechanism
wenzelm@21308
  1411
that has been implemented on top of these primitives.  This concept
wenzelm@21308
  1412
generalizes the existing ``theorem (in ...)'' towards more versatility
wenzelm@21308
  1413
and scalability.
wenzelm@21308
  1414
wenzelm@21960
  1415
* Proof General interface: proper undo of final 'end' command;
wenzelm@21960
  1416
discontinued Isabelle/classic mode (ML proof scripts).
wenzelm@21960

*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@17865
  1420
wenzelm@21717
  1421
* Added antiquotation @{theory name} which prints the given name,
wenzelm@21717
  1422
after checking that it refers to a valid ancestor theory in the
wenzelm@21717
  1423
current context.
haftmann@21339
  1424
wenzelm@17869
  1425
* Added antiquotations @{ML_type text} and @{ML_struct text} which
wenzelm@17869
  1426
check the given source text as ML type/structure, printing verbatim.
wenzelm@17865
  1427
wenzelm@21717
  1428
* Added antiquotation @{abbrev "c args"} which prints the abbreviation
wenzelm@21717
  1429
"c args == rhs" given in the current context.  (Any number of
wenzelm@21735
  1430
arguments may be given on the LHS.)

*** Pure ***
wenzelm@17779
  1434
wenzelm@24800
  1435
* The 'class' package offers a combination of axclass and locale to
wenzelm@25129
  1436
achieve Haskell-like type classes in Isabelle.  Definitions and
wenzelm@25129
  1437
theorems within a class context produce both relative results (with
wenzelm@25129
  1438
implicit parameters according to the locale context), and polymorphic
wenzelm@25129
  1439
constants with qualified polymorphism (according to the class
wenzelm@25129
  1440
context).  Within the body context of a 'class' target, a separate
wenzelm@25129
  1441
syntax layer ("user space type system") takes care of converting
wenzelm@25129
  1442
between global polymorphic consts and internal locale representation.
wenzelm@25177
  1443
See src/HOL/ex/Classpackage.thy for examples (as well as main HOL).

* Generic code generator framework allows to generate executable
wenzelm@24800
  1447
code for ML and Haskell (including Isabelle classes).  A short usage
wenzelm@24800
  1448
sketch:
haftmann@20188
  1449
haftmann@20188
  1450
    internal compilation:
haftmann@25199
  1451
        export_code <list of constants (term syntax)> in SML
haftmann@20453
  1452
    writing SML code to a file:
haftmann@25199
  1453
        export_code <list of constants (term syntax)> in SML <filename>
haftmann@22735
  1454
    writing OCaml code to a file:
haftmann@25199
  1455
        export_code <list of constants (term syntax)> in OCaml <filename>
haftmann@20188
  1456
    writing Haskell code to a bunch of files:
haftmann@25199
  1457
        export_code <list of constants (term syntax)> in Haskell <filename>
haftmann@25199
  1458
haftmann@25199
  1459
    evaluating closed propositions to True/False using code generation:
haftmann@25184
  1460
        method ``eval''
haftmann@25184
  1461
haftmann@25184
  1462
Reasonable default setup of framework in HOL.
haftmann@20453
  1463
haftmann@20453
  1464
Theorem attributs for selecting and transforming function equations theorems:
haftmann@20453
  1465
haftmann@22845
  1466
    [code fun]:        select a theorem as function equation for a specific constant
haftmann@22845
  1467
    [code fun del]:    deselect a theorem as function equation for a specific constant
haftmann@22845
  1468
    [code inline]:     select an equation theorem for unfolding (inlining) in place
haftmann@22845
  1469
    [code inline del]: deselect an equation theorem for unfolding (inlining) in place
haftmann@20453
  1470
haftmann@22735
  1471
User-defined serializations (target in {SML, OCaml, Haskell}):
haftmann@20453
  1472
haftmann@20453
  1473
    code_const <and-list of constants (term syntax)>
haftmann@20453
  1474
      {(target) <and-list of const target syntax>}+
haftmann@20453
  1475
haftmann@20453
  1476
    code_type <and-list of type constructors>
haftmann@20453
  1477
      {(target) <and-list of type target syntax>}+
haftmann@20453
  1478
haftmann@20453
  1479
    code_instance <and-list of instances>
haftmann@20453
  1480
      {(target)}+
haftmann@20453
  1481
        where instance ::= <type constructor> :: <class>
haftmann@20453
  1482
haftmann@20453
  1483
    code_class <and_list of classes>
haftmann@20453
  1484
      {(target) <and-list of class target syntax>}+
haftmann@20453
  1485
        where class target syntax ::= <class name> {where {<classop> == <target syntax>}+}?
haftmann@20453
  1486
haftmann@25199
  1487
code_instance and code_class only are effective to target Haskell.
haftmann@22735
  1488
wenzelm@25177
  1489
For example usage see src/HOL/ex/Codegenerator.thy and
wenzelm@25177
  1490
src/HOL/ex/Codegenerator_Pretty.thy.  A separate tutorial on code
wenzelm@24800
  1491
generation from Isabelle/HOL theories is available via "isatool doc
wenzelm@24800
  1492
codegen".
haftmann@20188
  1493
wenzelm@25129
  1494
* Code generator: consts in 'consts_code' Isar commands are now
wenzelm@25129
  1495
referred to by usual term syntax (including optional type
wenzelm@25129
  1496
annotations).
wenzelm@25129
  1497
wenzelm@19254
  1498
* Command 'no_translations' removes translation rules from theory
wenzelm@19254
  1499
syntax.
wenzelm@19254
  1500
wenzelm@19625
  1501
* Overloaded definitions are now actually checked for acyclic
wenzelm@19714
  1502
dependencies.  The overloading scheme is slightly more general than
wenzelm@19714
  1503
that of Haskell98, although Isabelle does not demand an exact
wenzelm@19714
  1504
correspondence to type class and instance declarations.
wenzelm@19714
  1505
INCOMPATIBILITY, use ``defs (unchecked overloaded)'' to admit more
wenzelm@19714
  1506
exotic versions of overloading -- at the discretion of the user!
wenzelm@19711
  1507
wenzelm@19711
  1508
Polymorphic constants are represented via type arguments, i.e. the
wenzelm@19711
  1509
instantiation that matches an instance against the most general
wenzelm@19711
  1510
declaration given in the signature.  For example, with the declaration
wenzelm@19711
  1511
c :: 'a => 'a => 'a, an instance c :: nat => nat => nat is represented
wenzelm@19711
  1512
as c(nat).  Overloading is essentially simultaneous structural
wenzelm@19711
  1513
recursion over such type arguments.  Incomplete specification patterns
wenzelm@19714
  1514
impose global constraints on all occurrences, e.g. c('a * 'a) on the
wenzelm@19715
  1515
LHS means that more general c('a * 'b) will be disallowed on any RHS.
wenzelm@19714
  1516
Command 'print_theory' outputs the normalized system of recursive
wenzelm@19714
  1517
equations, see section "definitions".
wenzelm@19625
  1518
wenzelm@24086
  1519
* Configuration options are maintained within the theory or proof
wenzelm@24086
  1520
context (with name and type bool/int/string), providing a very simple
wenzelm@24086
  1521
interface to a poor-man's version of general context data.  Tools may
wenzelm@24110
  1522
declare options in ML (e.g. using Attrib.config_int) and then refer to
wenzelm@24110
  1523
these values using Config.get etc.  Users may change options via an
wenzelm@24110
  1524
associated attribute of the same name.  This form of context
wenzelm@24110
  1525
declaration works particularly well with commands 'declare' or
wenzelm@24110
  1526
'using', for example ``declare [[foo = 42]]''.  Thus it has become
wenzelm@24110
  1527
very easy to avoid global references, which would not observe Isar
wenzelm@24110
  1528
toplevel undo/redo and fail to work with multithreading.
wenzelm@24086
  1529
wenzelm@24172
  1530
Various global ML references of Pure and HOL have been turned into
wenzelm@24172
  1531
configuration options:
wenzelm@24172

  fast_arith_split_limit	fast_arith_split_limit
wenzelm@24172
  1542
wenzelm@24086
  1543
* Named collections of theorems may be easily installed as context
wenzelm@24800
  1544
data using the functor NamedThmsFun (see also
wenzelm@24086
  1545
src/Pure/Tools/named_thms.ML).  The user may add or delete facts via
wenzelm@24110
  1546
attributes; there is also a toplevel print command.  This facility is
wenzelm@24110
  1547
just a common case of general context data, which is the preferred way
wenzelm@24110
  1548
for anything more complex than just a list of facts in canonical
wenzelm@24110
  1549
order.
wenzelm@24086
  1550
wenzelm@24032
  1551
* Isar: command 'declaration' augments a local theory by generic
wenzelm@24032
  1552
declaration functions written in ML.  This enables arbitrary content
wenzelm@24032
  1553
being added to the context, depending on a morphism that tells the
wenzelm@24032
  1554
difference of the original declaration context wrt. the application
wenzelm@24032
  1555
context encountered later on.
wenzelm@24032
  1556
wenzelm@24032
  1557
* Isar: proper interfaces for simplification procedures.  Command
wenzelm@24032
  1558
'simproc_setup' declares named simprocs (with match patterns, and body
wenzelm@24032
  1559
text in ML).  Attribute "simproc" adds/deletes simprocs in the current
wenzelm@24032
  1560
context.  ML antiquotation @{simproc name} retrieves named simprocs.
wenzelm@24032
  1561
wenzelm@24032
  1562
* Isar: an extra pair of brackets around attribute declarations
wenzelm@24032
  1563
abbreviates a theorem reference involving an internal dummy fact,
wenzelm@24032
  1564
which will be ignored later --- only the effect of the attribute on
wenzelm@24032
  1565
the background context will persist.  This form of in-place
wenzelm@24032
  1566
declarations is particularly useful with commands like 'declare' and
wenzelm@24032
  1567
'using', for example ``have A using [[simproc a]] by simp''.
wenzelm@24032
  1568
wenzelm@23369
  1569
* Isar: method "assumption" (and implicit closing of subproofs) now
wenzelm@23369
  1570
takes simple non-atomic goal assumptions into account: after applying
wenzelm@23369
  1571
an assumption as a rule the resulting subgoals are solved by atomic
wenzelm@23369
  1572
assumption steps.  This is particularly useful to finish 'obtain'
wenzelm@23369
  1573
goals, such as "!!x. (!!x. P x ==> thesis) ==> P x ==> thesis",
wenzelm@23369
  1574
without referring to the original premise "!!x. P x ==> thesis" in the
wenzelm@23369
  1575
Isar proof context.  POTENTIAL INCOMPATIBILITY: method "assumption" is
wenzelm@23369
  1576
more permissive.
wenzelm@23369
  1577
wenzelm@23369
  1578
* Isar: implicit use of prems from the Isar proof context is
wenzelm@23369
  1579
considered a legacy feature.  Common applications like ``have A .''
wenzelm@23369
  1580
may be replaced by ``have A by fact'' or ``note `A`''.  In general,
wenzelm@23369
  1581
referencing facts explicitly here improves readability and
wenzelm@23369
  1582
maintainability of proof texts.
wenzelm@23369
  1583
wenzelm@17865
  1584
* Isar: improper proof element 'guess' is like 'obtain', but derives
wenzelm@17865
  1585
the obtained context from the course of reasoning!  For example:
wenzelm@17865
  1586
wenzelm@17865
  1587
  assume "EX x y. A x & B y"   -- "any previous fact"
wenzelm@17865
  1588
  then guess x and y by clarify
wenzelm@17865
  1589
wenzelm@17865
  1590
This technique is potentially adventurous, depending on the facts and
wenzelm@17865
  1591
proof tools being involved here.
wenzelm@17865
  1592
wenzelm@18020
  1593
* Isar: known facts from the proof context may be specified as literal
wenzelm@18020
  1594
propositions, using ASCII back-quote syntax.  This works wherever
wenzelm@18020
  1595
named facts used to be allowed so far, in proof commands, proof
wenzelm@18020
  1596
methods, attributes etc.  Literal facts are retrieved from the context
wenzelm@18020
  1597
according to unification of type and term parameters.  For example,
wenzelm@18020
  1598
provided that "A" and "A ==> B" and "!!x. P x ==> Q x" are known
wenzelm@18020
  1599
theorems in the current context, then these are valid literal facts:
wenzelm@18020
  1600
`A` and `A ==> B` and `!!x. P x ==> Q x" as well as `P a ==> Q a` etc.
wenzelm@18020
  1601
wenzelm@18020
  1602
There is also a proof method "fact" which does the same composition
wenzelm@18044
  1603
for explicit goal states, e.g. the following proof texts coincide with
wenzelm@18044
  1604
certain special cases of literal facts:
wenzelm@18020
  1605
wenzelm@18020
  1606
  have "A" by fact                 ==  note `A`
wenzelm@18020
  1607
  have "A ==> B" by fact           ==  note `A ==> B`
wenzelm@18020
  1608
  have "!!x. P x ==> Q x" by fact  ==  note `!!x. P x ==> Q x`
wenzelm@18020
  1609
  have "P a ==> Q a" by fact       ==  note `P a ==> Q a`
wenzelm@18020
  1610
wenzelm@20118
  1611
* Isar: ":" (colon) is no longer a symbolic identifier character in
wenzelm@20118
  1612
outer syntax.  Thus symbolic identifiers may be used without
wenzelm@20118
  1613
additional white space in declarations like this: ``assume *: A''.
wenzelm@20118
  1614
wenzelm@20013
  1615
* Isar: 'print_facts' prints all local facts of the current context,
wenzelm@20013
  1616
both named and unnamed ones.
wenzelm@20013
  1617
wenzelm@18308
  1618
* Isar: 'def' now admits simultaneous definitions, e.g.:
wenzelm@18308
  1619
wenzelm@18308
  1620
  def x == "t" and y == "u"
wenzelm@18308
  1621
wenzelm@18540
  1622
* Isar: added command 'unfolding', which is structurally similar to
wenzelm@18540
  1623
'using', but affects both the goal state and facts by unfolding given
wenzelm@18815
  1624
rewrite rules.  Thus many occurrences of the 'unfold' method or
wenzelm@18540
  1625
'unfolded' attribute may be replaced by first-class proof text.
wenzelm@18540
  1626
wenzelm@18815
  1627
* Isar: methods 'unfold' / 'fold', attributes 'unfolded' / 'folded',
wenzelm@18815
  1628
and command 'unfolding' now all support object-level equalities
wenzelm@18815
  1629
(potentially conditional).  The underlying notion of rewrite rule is
wenzelm@18815
  1630
analogous to the 'rule_format' attribute, but *not* that of the
wenzelm@18815
  1631
Simplifier (which is usually more generous).
wenzelm@18815
  1632
kleing@24238
  1633
* Isar: the new attribute [rotated n] (default n = 1) rotates the
kleing@24238
  1634
premises of a theorem by n. Useful in conjunction with drule.
kleing@24238
  1635
wenzelm@19220
  1636
* Isar: the goal restriction operator [N] (default N = 1) evaluates a
wenzelm@19220
  1637
method expression within a sandbox consisting of the first N
wenzelm@19240
  1638
sub-goals, which need to exist.  For example, ``simp_all [3]''
wenzelm@19240
  1639
simplifies the first three sub-goals, while (rule foo, simp_all)[]
wenzelm@19240
  1640
simplifies all new goals that emerge from applying rule foo to the
wenzelm@19240
  1641
originally first one.
wenzelm@19220
  1642
wenzelm@19814
  1643
* Isar: schematic goals are no longer restricted to higher-order
wenzelm@19814
  1644
patterns; e.g. ``lemma "?P(?x)" by (rule TrueI)'' now works as
wenzelm@19814
  1645
expected.
wenzelm@19814
  1646
wenzelm@18901
  1647
* Isar: the conclusion of a long theorem statement is now either
wenzelm@18901
  1648
'shows' (a simultaneous conjunction, as before), or 'obtains'
wenzelm@18901
  1649
(essentially a disjunction of cases with local parameters and
wenzelm@18901
  1650
assumptions).  The latter allows to express general elimination rules
wenzelm@18910
  1651
adequately; in this notation common elimination rules look like this:
wenzelm@18901
  1652
wenzelm@18901
  1653
  lemma exE:    -- "EX x. P x ==> (!!x. P x ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1654
    assumes "EX x. P x"
wenzelm@18901
  1655
    obtains x where "P x"
wenzelm@18901
  1656
wenzelm@18901
  1657
  lemma conjE:  -- "A & B ==> (A ==> B ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1658
    assumes "A & B"
wenzelm@18901
  1659
    obtains A and B
wenzelm@18901
  1660
wenzelm@18901
  1661
  lemma disjE:  -- "A | B ==> (A ==> thesis) ==> (B ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1662
    assumes "A | B"
wenzelm@18901
  1663
    obtains
wenzelm@18901
  1664
      A
wenzelm@18901
  1665
    | B
wenzelm@18901
  1666
wenzelm@18910
  1667
The subsequent classical rules even refer to the formal "thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1668
explicitly:
wenzelm@18901
  1669
wenzelm@18901
  1670
  lemma classical:     -- "(~ thesis ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1671
    obtains "~ thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1672
wenzelm@18910
  1673
  lemma Peirce's_Law:  -- "((thesis ==> something) ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18910
  1674
    obtains "thesis ==> something"
wenzelm@18901
  1675
wenzelm@18901
  1676
The actual proof of an 'obtains' statement is analogous to that of the
wenzelm@18910
  1677
Isar proof element 'obtain', only that there may be several cases.
wenzelm@18910
  1678
Optional case names may be specified in parentheses; these will be
wenzelm@18910
  1679
available both in the present proof and as annotations in the
wenzelm@18910
  1680
resulting rule, for later use with the 'cases' method (cf. attribute
wenzelm@18910
  1681
case_names).
wenzelm@18901
  1682
wenzelm@21447
  1683
* Isar: the assumptions of a long theorem statement are available as
wenzelm@21447
  1684
"assms" fact in the proof context.  This is more appropriate than the
wenzelm@21447
  1685
(historical) "prems", which refers to all assumptions of the current
wenzelm@21447
  1686
context, including those from the target locale, proof body etc.
wenzelm@21447
  1687
wenzelm@19263
  1688
* Isar: 'print_statement' prints theorems from the current theory or
wenzelm@19263
  1689
proof context in long statement form, according to the syntax of a
wenzelm@19263
  1690
top-level lemma.
wenzelm@19263
  1691
wenzelm@18901
  1692
* Isar: 'obtain' takes an optional case name for the local context
wenzelm@18901
  1693
introduction rule (default "that").
wenzelm@18901
  1694
wenzelm@19587
  1695
* Isar: removed obsolete 'concl is' patterns.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use
wenzelm@19587
  1696
explicit (is "_ ==> ?foo") in the rare cases where this still happens
wenzelm@19587
  1697
to occur.
wenzelm@19587
  1698
wenzelm@19682
  1699
* Pure: syntax "CONST name" produces a fully internalized constant
wenzelm@19682
  1700
according to the current context.  This is particularly useful for
wenzelm@19682
  1701
syntax translations that should refer to internal constant
wenzelm@19682
  1702
representations independently of name spaces.
wenzelm@19682
  1703
wenzelm@21537
  1704
* Pure: syntax constant for foo (binder "FOO ") is called "foo_binder"
wenzelm@21537
  1705
instead of "FOO ". This allows multiple binder declarations to coexist
wenzelm@21537
  1706
in the same context.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@21537
  1707
wenzelm@21209
  1708
* Isar/locales: 'notation' provides a robust interface to the 'syntax'
wenzelm@21209
  1709
primitive that also works in a locale context (both for constants and
wenzelm@24950
  1710
fixed variables). Type declaration and internal syntactic representation
wenzelm@24950
  1711
of given constants retrieved from the context. Likewise, the
wenzelm@24950
  1712
'no_notation' command allows to remove given syntax annotations from the
wenzelm@24950
  1713
current context.
wenzelm@19682
  1714
wenzelm@19665
  1715
* Isar/locales: new derived specification elements 'axiomatization',
wenzelm@19665
  1716
'definition', 'abbreviation', which support type-inference, admit
wenzelm@19083
  1717
object-level specifications (equality, equivalence).  See also the
wenzelm@19083
  1718
isar-ref manual.  Examples:
wenzelm@19081
  1719
wenzelm@19665
  1720
  axiomatization
wenzelm@21595
  1721
    eq  (infix "===" 50) where
wenzelm@21595
  1722
    eq_refl: "x === x" and eq_subst: "x === y ==> P x ==> P y"
wenzelm@21595
  1723
wenzelm@21595
  1724
  definition "f x y = x + y + 1"
wenzelm@21595
  1725
  definition g where "g x = f x x"
wenzelm@19081
  1726
wenzelm@19363
  1727
  abbreviation
wenzelm@21595
  1728
    neq  (infix "=!=" 50) where
wenzelm@19363
  1729
    "x =!= y == ~ (x === y)"
wenzelm@19081
  1730
wenzelm@19083
  1731
These specifications may be also used in a locale context.  Then the
wenzelm@19083
  1732
constants being introduced depend on certain fixed parameters, and the
wenzelm@19083
  1733
constant name is qualified by the locale base name.  An internal
wenzelm@19083
  1734
abbreviation takes care for convenient input and output, making the
wenzelm@19088
  1735
parameters implicit and using the original short name.  See also
wenzelm@25177
  1736
src/HOL/ex/Abstract_NAT.thy for an example of deriving polymorphic
wenzelm@19083
  1737
entities from a monomorphic theory.
wenzelm@19083
  1738
wenzelm@19083
  1739
Presently, abbreviations are only available 'in' a target locale, but
wenzelm@19363
  1740
not inherited by general import expressions.  Also note that
wenzelm@19363
  1741
'abbreviation' may be used as a type-safe replacement for 'syntax' +
wenzelm@24735
  1742
'translations' in common applications.  The "no_abbrevs" print mode
wenzelm@24735
  1743
prevents folding of abbreviations in term output.
wenzelm@19084
  1744
wenzelm@19682
  1745
Concrete syntax is attached to specified constants in internal form,
wenzelm@19682
  1746
independently of name spaces.  The parse tree representation is
wenzelm@21209
  1747
slightly different -- use 'notation' instead of raw 'syntax', and
wenzelm@19682
  1748
'translations' with explicit "CONST" markup to accommodate this.
wenzelm@19665
  1749
wenzelm@24800
  1750
* Pure/Isar: unified syntax for new-style specification mechanisms
wenzelm@24800
  1751
(e.g.  'definition', 'abbreviation', or 'inductive' in HOL) admits
wenzelm@24800
  1752
full type inference and dummy patterns ("_").  For example:
wenzelm@24735
  1753
wenzelm@24735
  1754
  definition "K x _ = x"
wenzelm@24735
  1755
wenzelm@24738
  1756
  inductive conj for A B
wenzelm@24738
  1757
  where "A ==> B ==> conj A B"
wenzelm@24738
  1758
wenzelm@21735
  1759
* Pure: command 'print_abbrevs' prints all constant abbreviations of
wenzelm@21735
  1760
the current context.  Print mode "no_abbrevs" prevents inversion of
wenzelm@21735
  1761
abbreviations on output.
wenzelm@21735
  1762
wenzelm@24800
  1763
* Isar/locales: improved parameter handling: use of locales "var" and
wenzelm@24800
  1764
"struct" no longer necessary; - parameter renamings are no longer
wenzelm@24800
  1765
required to be injective.  For example, this allows to define
wenzelm@24800
  1766
endomorphisms as locale endom = homom mult mult h.
ballarin@19783
  1767
ballarin@19931
  1768
* Isar/locales: changed the way locales with predicates are defined.
ballarin@19931
  1769
Instead of accumulating the specification, the imported expression is
wenzelm@22126
  1770
now an interpretation.  INCOMPATIBILITY: different normal form of
wenzelm@22126
  1771
locale expressions.  In particular, in interpretations of locales with
wenzelm@22126
  1772
predicates, goals repesenting already interpreted fragments are not
wenzelm@22126
  1773
removed automatically.  Use methods `intro_locales' and
wenzelm@22126
  1774
`unfold_locales'; see below.
wenzelm@22126
  1775
wenzelm@22126
  1776
* Isar/locales: new methods `intro_locales' and `unfold_locales'
wenzelm@22126
  1777
provide backward reasoning on locales predicates.  The methods are
wenzelm@22126
  1778
aware of interpretations and discharge corresponding goals.
wenzelm@22126
  1779
`intro_locales' is less aggressive then `unfold_locales' and does not
wenzelm@22126
  1780
unfold predicates to assumptions.
ballarin@19931
  1781
ballarin@19931
  1782
* Isar/locales: the order in which locale fragments are accumulated
wenzelm@22126
  1783
has changed.  This enables to override declarations from fragments due
wenzelm@22126
  1784
to interpretations -- for example, unwanted simp rules.
ballarin@19931
  1785
ballarin@23920
  1786
* Isar/locales: interpretation in theories and proof contexts has been
ballarin@23920
  1787
extended.  One may now specify (and prove) equations, which are
ballarin@23920
  1788
unfolded in interpreted theorems.  This is useful for replacing
ballarin@23920
  1789
defined concepts (constants depending on locale parameters) by
ballarin@23920
  1790
concepts already existing in the target context.  Example:
ballarin@23920
  1791
ballarin@23920
  1792
  interpretation partial_order ["op <= :: [int, int] => bool"]
ballarin@23920
  1793
    where "partial_order.less (op <=) (x::int) y = (x < y)"
ballarin@23920
  1794
wenzelm@24800
  1795
Typically, the constant `partial_order.less' is created by a
wenzelm@24800
  1796
definition specification element in the context of locale
wenzelm@24800
  1797
partial_order.
wenzelm@24800
  1798
wenzelm@24859
  1799
* Method "induct": improved internal context management to support
wenzelm@24800
  1800
local fixes and defines on-the-fly. Thus explicit meta-level
wenzelm@24800
  1801
connectives !!  and ==> are rarely required anymore in inductive goals
wenzelm@24800
  1802
(using object-logic connectives for this purpose has been long
wenzelm@24800
  1803
obsolete anyway). Common proof patterns are explained in
wenzelm@25177
  1804
src/HOL/Induct/Common_Patterns.thy, see also
wenzelm@25177
  1805
src/HOL/Isar_examples/Puzzle.thy and src/HOL/Lambda for realistic
wenzelm@25177
  1806
examples.
wenzelm@24606
  1807
wenzelm@24859
  1808
* Method "induct": improved handling of simultaneous goals. Instead of
wenzelm@24606
  1809
introducing object-level conjunction, the statement is now split into
wenzelm@24606
  1810
several conclusions, while the corresponding symbolic cases are nested
wenzelm@24606
  1811
accordingly. INCOMPATIBILITY, proofs need to be structured explicitly,
wenzelm@25177
  1812
see src/HOL/Induct/Common_Patterns.thy, for example.
wenzelm@24606
  1813
wenzelm@24859
  1814
* Method "induct": mutual induction rules are now specified as a list
wenzelm@24800
  1815
of rule sharing the same induction cases. HOL packages usually provide
wenzelm@24606
  1816
foo_bar.inducts for mutually defined items foo and bar (e.g. inductive
wenzelm@24859
  1817
predicates/sets or datatypes). INCOMPATIBILITY, users need to specify
wenzelm@24859
  1818
mutual induction rules differently, i.e. like this:
wenzelm@18506
  1819
wenzelm@18506
  1820
  (induct rule: foo_bar.inducts)
wenzelm@18506
  1821
  (induct set: foo bar)
wenzelm@24859
  1822
  (induct pred: foo bar)
wenzelm@18506
  1823
  (induct type: foo bar)
wenzelm@18506
  1824
wenzelm@18506
  1825
The ML function ProjectRule.projections turns old-style rules into the
wenzelm@18506
  1826
new format.
wenzelm@18506
  1827
wenzelm@24859
  1828
* Method "coinduct": dual of induction, see
wenzelm@18399
  1829
src/HOL/Library/Coinductive_List.thy for various examples.
wenzelm@18399
  1830
wenzelm@24859
  1831
* Method "cases", "induct", "coinduct": the ``(open)'' option is
wenzelm@24859
  1832
considered a legacy feature.
wenzelm@24859
  1833
wenzelm@20919
  1834
* Attribute "symmetric" produces result with standardized schematic
wenzelm@20919
  1835
variables (index 0).  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@20919
  1836
wenzelm@22126
  1837
* Simplifier: by default the simplifier trace only shows top level
wenzelm@22126
  1838
rewrites now. That is, trace_simp_depth_limit is set to 1 by
wenzelm@22126
  1839
default. Thus there is less danger of being flooded by the trace. The
wenzelm@22126
  1840
trace indicates where parts have been suppressed.
nipkow@18674
  1841
  
wenzelm@18536
  1842
* Provers/classical: removed obsolete classical version of elim_format
wenzelm@18536
  1843
attribute; classical elim/dest rules are now treated uniformly when
wenzelm@18536
  1844
manipulating the claset.
wenzelm@18536
  1845
wenzelm@18694
  1846
* Provers/classical: stricter checks to ensure that supplied intro,
wenzelm@18694
  1847
dest and elim rules are well-formed; dest and elim rules must have at
wenzelm@18694
  1848
least one premise.
wenzelm@18694
  1849
wenzelm@18694
  1850
* Provers/classical: attributes dest/elim/intro take an optional
wenzelm@18695
  1851
weight argument for the rule (just as the Pure versions).  Weights are
wenzelm@18696
  1852
ignored by automated tools, but determine the search order of single
wenzelm@18694
  1853
rule steps.

* Syntax: input syntax now supports dummy variable binding "%_. b",
wenzelm@18536
  1856
where the body does not mention the bound variable.  Note that dummy
wenzelm@18536
  1857
patterns implicitly depend on their context of bounds, which makes
wenzelm@18536
  1858
"{_. _}" match any set comprehension as expected.  Potential
wenzelm@18536
  1859
INCOMPATIBILITY -- parse translations need to cope with syntactic
wenzelm@18536
  1860
constant "_idtdummy" in the binding position.
wenzelm@18536
  1861
wenzelm@18536
  1862
* Syntax: removed obsolete syntactic constant "_K" and its associated
wenzelm@18536
  1863
parse translation.  INCOMPATIBILITY -- use dummy abstraction instead,
wenzelm@18536
  1864
for example "A -> B" => "Pi A (%_. B)".

INCOMPATIBILITY.  Adaptions may be required in the following cases:
haftmann@25184
  1923
haftmann@25184
  1924
a) User-defined constants using any of the names "plus", "minus",
haftmann@25184
  1925
"times", "less" or "less_eq". The standard syntax translations for
haftmann@25184
  1926
"+", "-" and "*" may go wrong.  INCOMPATIBILITY: use more specific
haftmann@25184
  1927
names.
haftmann@25184
  1928
haftmann@25184
  1929
b) Variables named "plus", "minus", "times", "less", "less_eq"
haftmann@25184
  1930
INCOMPATIBILITY: use more specific names.
haftmann@25184
  1931
haftmann@25184
  1932
c) Permutative equations (e.g. "a + b = b + a")
haftmann@25184
  1933
Since the change of names also changes the order of terms, permutative
haftmann@25184
  1934
rewrite rules may get applied in a different order. Experience shows
haftmann@25184
  1935
that this is rarely the case (only two adaptions in the whole Isabelle
haftmann@25184
  1936
distribution).  INCOMPATIBILITY: rewrite proofs
haftmann@25184
  1937
haftmann@25184
  1938
d) ML code directly refering to constant names
haftmann@25184
  1939
This in general only affects hand-written proof tactics, simprocs and
haftmann@25184
  1940
so on.  INCOMPATIBILITY: grep your sourcecode and replace names.
haftmann@25184
  1941
Consider using @{const_name} antiquotation.
haftmann@25184
  1942
haftmann@25184
  1943
* New class "default" with associated constant "default".
haftmann@25184
  1944
haftmann@25184
  1945
* Function "sgn" is now overloaded and available on int, real, complex
haftmann@25184
  1946
(and other numeric types), using class "sgn".  Two possible defs of
haftmann@25184
  1947
sgn are given as equational assumptions in the classes sgn_if and
haftmann@25184
  1948
sgn_div_norm; ordered_idom now also inherits from sgn_if.
haftmann@25184
  1949
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
  1950
haftmann@25184
  1951
* Locale "partial_order" now unified with class "order" (cf. theory
haftmann@25184
  1952
Orderings), added parameter "less".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
  1953
haftmann@25184
  1954
* Renamings in classes "order" and "linorder": facts "refl", "trans" and
haftmann@25184
  1955
"cases" to "order_refl", "order_trans" and "linorder_cases", to avoid
haftmann@25184
  1956
clashes with HOL "refl" and "trans".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
  1957
haftmann@25184
  1958
* Classes "order" and "linorder": potential INCOMPATIBILITY due to
haftmann@25184
  1959
changed order of proof goals in instance proofs.
haftmann@25184
  1960
haftmann@25184
  1961
* The transitivity reasoner for partial and linear orders is set up
haftmann@25184
  1962
for classes "order" and "linorder".  Instances of the reasoner are available
haftmann@25184
  1963
in all contexts importing or interpreting the corresponding locales.
haftmann@25184
  1964
Method "order" invokes the reasoner separately; the reasoner
haftmann@25184
  1965
is also integrated with the Simplifier as a solver.  Diagnostic
haftmann@25184
  1966
command 'print_orders' shows the available instances of the reasoner
haftmann@25184
  1967
in the current context.
haftmann@25184

  1971
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
  1972
haftmann@25184
  1973
* Formulation of theorem "dense" changed slightly due to integration
haftmann@25184
  1974
with new class dense_linear_order.
haftmann@25184
  1975
haftmann@25184
  1976
* Uniform lattice theory development in HOL.
haftmann@25184
  1977
haftmann@25184
  1978
    constants "meet" and "join" now named "inf" and "sup"
haftmann@25184
  1979
    constant "Meet" now named "Inf"
haftmann@25184
  1980
haftmann@25184
  1981
    classes "meet_semilorder" and "join_semilorder" now named
haftmann@25184
  1982
      "lower_semilattice" and "upper_semilattice"
haftmann@25184
  1983
    class "lorder" now named "lattice"

  1984
    class "comp_lat" now named "complete_lattice"
haftmann@25184
  1985
haftmann@25184
  1986
    Instantiation of lattice classes allows explicit definitions
haftmann@25184
  1987
    for "inf" and "sup" operations (or "Inf" and "Sup" for complete lattices).

  2093
type "'a::size ==> bool"
haftmann@25184
  2094
wenzelm@24800
  2095
* Internal reorganisation of `size' of datatypes: size theorems
wenzelm@24800
  2096
"foo.size" are no longer subsumed by "foo.simps" (but are still
wenzelm@24800
  2097
simplification rules by default!); theorems "prod.size" now named
haftmann@25184
  2098
"*.size".
haftmann@25184
  2099
haftmann@25184
  2100
* Class "div" now inherits from class "times" rather than "type".

  2101
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800

  2103
* HOL/Finite_Set: "name-space" locales Lattice, Distrib_lattice,
wenzelm@24800
  2104
Linorder etc.  have disappeared; operations defined in terms of
wenzelm@24800

* HOL-Word: New extensive library and type for generic, fixed size
wenzelm@24800
  2110
machine words, with arithemtic, bit-wise, shifting and rotating
wenzelm@24800
  2111
operations, reflection into int, nat, and bool lists, automation for
wenzelm@24800
  2112
linear arithmetic (by automatic reflection into nat or int), including
wenzelm@24800
  2113
lemmas on overflow and monotonicity.  Instantiated to all appropriate
wenzelm@24800
  2114
arithmetic type classes, supporting automatic simplification of

  2120
haftmann@23850
  2121
* Code generator library theories:
haftmann@24993
  2122
  - Code_Integer represents HOL integers by big integer literals in target
haftmann@23850
  2123
    languages.
haftmann@24993
  2124
  - Code_Char represents HOL characters by character literals in target
haftmann@23850
  2125
    languages.
haftmann@24993
  2126
  - Code_Char_chr like Code_Char, but also offers treatment of character
haftmann@24993
  2127
    codes; includes Code_Integer.
wenzelm@24800
  2128
  - Executable_Set allows to generate code for finite sets using lists.
wenzelm@24800
  2129
  - Executable_Rat implements rational numbers as triples (sign, enumerator,
haftmann@23850
  2130
    denominator).
wenzelm@24800
  2131
  - Executable_Real implements a subset of real numbers, namly those
haftmann@23850
  2132
    representable by rational numbers.
wenzelm@24800
  2133
  - Efficient_Nat implements natural numbers by integers, which in general will
haftmann@23850
  2134
    result in higher efficency; pattern matching with 0/Suc is eliminated;
haftmann@24993
  2135
    includes Code_Integer.
haftmann@24993
  2136
  - Code_Index provides an additional datatype index which is mapped to
haftmann@24993
  2137
    target-language built-in integers.
haftmann@26355
  2138
  - Code_Message provides an additional datatype message_string which is isomorphic to
haftmann@24993
  2139
    strings; messages are mapped to target-language strings.

* New package for inductive predicates
berghofe@23783
  2142
berghofe@23783
  2143
  An n-ary predicate p with m parameters z_1, ..., z_m can now be defined via
berghofe@23783
  2144
berghofe@23783
  2145
    inductive

berghofe@23783
  2163
berghofe@23783
  2164
  For backward compatibility, there is a wrapper allowing inductive

  2166
berghofe@23783

berghofe@23783
  2189
berghofe@23783
  2190
  INCOMPATIBILITIES:
berghofe@23783
  2191
berghofe@23783
  2192
  - Since declaration and definition of inductive sets or predicates
wenzelm@24800
  2193
    is no longer separated, abbreviations involving the newly
wenzelm@24800
  2194
    introduced sets or predicates must be specified together with the
wenzelm@24800
  2195
    introduction rules after the 'where' keyword (see above), rather
wenzelm@24800
  2196
    than before the actual inductive definition.
wenzelm@24800
  2197
wenzelm@24800
  2198
  - The variables in induction and elimination rules are now
wenzelm@24800
  2199
    quantified in the order of their occurrence in the introduction
wenzelm@24800
  2200
    rules, rather than in alphabetical order. Since this may break
wenzelm@24800
  2201
    some proofs, these proofs either have to be repaired, e.g. by
wenzelm@24800
  2202
    reordering the variables a_i_1 ... a_i_{k_i} in Isar 'case'
wenzelm@24800
  2203
    statements of the form
berghofe@23783
  2204
berghofe@23783
  2205
      case (rule_i a_i_1 ... a_i_{k_i})
berghofe@23783
  2206
berghofe@23783
  2207
    or the old order of quantification has to be restored by explicitly adding
berghofe@23783
  2208
    meta-level quantifiers in the introduction rules, i.e.
berghofe@23783
  2209
berghofe@23783
  2210
      | rule_i: "!!a_i_1 ... a_i_{k_i}. ... ==> p z_1 ... z_m t_i_1 ... t_i_n"
berghofe@23783
  2211
berghofe@23783
  2212
  - The format of the elimination rules is now
berghofe@23783
  2213
berghofe@23783
  2214
      p z_1 ... z_m x_1 ... x_n ==>
berghofe@23783
  2215
        (!!a_1_1 ... a_1_{k_1}. x_1 = t_1_1 ==> ... ==> x_n = t_1_n ==> ... ==> P)
berghofe@23783
  2216
        ==> ... ==> P
berghofe@23783
  2217
berghofe@23783
  2218
    for predicates and
berghofe@23783
  2219
berghofe@23783
  2220
      (x_1, ..., x_n) : s z_1 ... z_m ==>
berghofe@23783
  2221
        (!!a_1_1 ... a_1_{k_1}. x_1 = t_1_1 ==> ... ==> x_n = t_1_n ==> ... ==> P)
berghofe@23783
  2222
        ==> ... ==> P
berghofe@23783
  2223
berghofe@23783
  2224
    for sets rather than
berghofe@23783
  2225
berghofe@23783
  2226
      x : s z_1 ... z_m ==>
berghofe@23783
  2227
        (!!a_1_1 ... a_1_{k_1}. x = (t_1_1, ..., t_1_n) ==> ... ==> P)
berghofe@23783
  2228
        ==> ... ==> P
berghofe@23783
  2229
wenzelm@24800
  2230
    This may require terms in goals to be expanded to n-tuples
wenzelm@24800
  2231
    (e.g. using case_tac or simplification with the split_paired_all
wenzelm@24800
  2232
    rule) before the above elimination rule is applicable.
wenzelm@24800
  2233
wenzelm@24800
  2234
  - The elimination or case analysis rules for (mutually) inductive
wenzelm@24800
  2235
    sets or predicates are now called "p_1.cases" ... "p_k.cases". The
wenzelm@24800
  2236
    list of rules "p_1_..._p_k.elims" is no longer available.
berghofe@23783
  2237
krauss@25198
  2238
* New package "function"/"fun" for general recursive functions,
krauss@25198
  2239
supporting mutual and nested recursion, definitions in local contexts,
krauss@25198
  2240
more general pattern matching and partiality. See HOL/ex/Fundefs.thy
krauss@25198
  2241
for small examples, and the separate tutorial on the function
krauss@25198
  2242
package. The old recdef "package" is still available as before, but
krauss@25198
  2243
users are encouraged to use the new package.
krauss@25198
  2244
krauss@25198
  2245
* Method "lexicographic_order" automatically synthesizes termination
krauss@25198
  2246
relations as lexicographic combinations of size measures. 
krauss@25198
  2247
wenzelm@24800
  2248
* Case-expressions allow arbitrary constructor-patterns (including
wenzelm@24800
  2249
"_") and take their order into account, like in functional
wenzelm@24800
  2250
programming.  Internally, this is translated into nested
wenzelm@24800
  2251
case-expressions; missing cases are added and mapped to the predefined
wenzelm@24800
  2252
constant "undefined". In complicated cases printing may no longer show
wenzelm@24800
  2253
the original input but the internal form. Lambda-abstractions allow
wenzelm@24800
  2254
the same form of pattern matching: "% pat1 => e1 | ..." is an
wenzelm@24800
  2255
abbreviation for "%x. case x of pat1 => e1 | ..." where x is a new
wenzelm@24800
  2256
variable.
nipkow@23564
  2257
huffman@23468
  2258
* IntDef: The constant "int :: nat => int" has been removed; now "int"
wenzelm@24800
  2259
is an abbreviation for "of_nat :: nat => int". The simplification
wenzelm@24800
  2260
rules for "of_nat" have been changed to work like "int" did
wenzelm@24800
  2261
previously.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY:
huffman@23468
  2262
  - "of_nat (Suc m)" simplifies to "1 + of_nat m" instead of "of_nat m + 1"
huffman@23468
  2263
  - of_nat_diff and of_nat_mult are no longer default simp rules
huffman@23377
  2264
chaieb@23295
  2265
* Method "algebra" solves polynomial equations over (semi)rings using
wenzelm@24800
  2266
Groebner bases. The (semi)ring structure is defined by locales and the
wenzelm@24800
  2267
tool setup depends on that generic context. Installing the method for
wenzelm@24800
  2268
a specific type involves instantiating the locale and possibly adding
wenzelm@24800
  2269
declarations for computation on the coefficients.  The method is
wenzelm@24800
  2270
already instantiated for natural numbers and for the axiomatic class
wenzelm@24800
  2271
of idoms with numerals.  See also the paper by Chaieb and Wenzel at
wenzelm@24800
  2272
CALCULEMUS 2007 for the general principles underlying this
wenzelm@24800
  2273
architecture of context-aware proof-tools.
wenzelm@24800
  2274
wenzelm@25033
  2275
* Method "ferrack" implements quantifier elimination over
wenzelm@25033
  2276
special-purpose dense linear orders using locales (analogous to
wenzelm@25033
  2277
"algebra"). The method is already installed for class
wenzelm@25033
  2278
{ordered_field,recpower,number_ring} which subsumes real, hyperreal,
wenzelm@25033
  2279
rat, etc.
wenzelm@25033
  2280
wenzelm@24800
  2281
* Former constant "List.op @" now named "List.append".  Use ML
wenzelm@24800
  2282
antiquotations @{const_name List.append} or @{term " ... @ ... "} to
wenzelm@24800
  2283
circumvent possible incompatibilities when working on ML level.
wenzelm@24800
  2284
haftmann@24996
  2285
* primrec: missing cases mapped to "undefined" instead of "arbitrary".
haftmann@22845
  2286
wenzelm@24800
  2287
* New function listsum :: 'a list => 'a for arbitrary monoids.
wenzelm@24800
  2288
Special syntax: "SUM x <- xs. f x" (and latex variants)
wenzelm@24800
  2289
wenzelm@24800
  2290
* New syntax for Haskell-like list comprehension (input only), eg.
wenzelm@25177
  2291
[(x,y). x <- xs, y <- ys, x ~= y], see also src/HOL/List.thy.
wenzelm@24800
  2292
wenzelm@24800
  2293
* The special syntax for function "filter" has changed from [x :
wenzelm@24800
  2294
xs. P] to [x <- xs. P] to avoid an ambiguity caused by list
wenzelm@24800
  2295
comprehension syntax, and for uniformity.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  2296
wenzelm@24800
  2297
* [a..b] is now defined for arbitrary linear orders.  It used to be
wenzelm@24800
  2298
defined on nat only, as an abbreviation for [a..<Suc b]
wenzelm@24800
  2299
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  2300
wenzelm@24800
  2301
* Renamed lemma "set_take_whileD"  to "set_takeWhileD".
wenzelm@24800
  2302
wenzelm@25177
  2303
* New functions "sorted" and "sort" in src/HOL/List.thy.
wenzelm@24800
  2304
wenzelm@24800
  2305
* New lemma collection field_simps (an extension of ring_simps) for
wenzelm@24800
  2306
manipulating (in)equations involving division. Multiplies with all
wenzelm@24800
  2307
denominators that can be proved to be non-zero (in equations) or
wenzelm@24800
  2308
positive/negative (in inequations).
nipkow@23480

nipkow@23480
  2310
* Lemma collections ring_eq_simps, group_eq_simps and ring_distrib
wenzelm@24800
  2311
have been improved and renamed to ring_simps, group_simps and
wenzelm@24800
  2312
ring_distribs.  Removed lemmas field_xyz in theory Ring_and_Field
wenzelm@24800
  2313
because they were subsumed by lemmas xyz.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  2314
wenzelm@25177
  2315
* Theory Library/Commutative_Ring: switched from recdef to function
wenzelm@24800
  2316
package; constants add, mul, pow now curried.  Infix syntax for
wenzelm@24800
  2317
algebraic operations.
haftmann@22735
  2318
wenzelm@24800
  2319
* Dropped redundant lemma def_imp_eq in favor of meta_eq_to_obj_eq.
haftmann@22218
  2320
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@22218
  2321
wenzelm@24800
  2322
* Dropped redundant lemma if_def2 in favor of if_bool_eq_conj.
haftmann@22218
  2323
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@22218
  2324
wenzelm@22126
  2325
* HOL/records: generalised field-update to take a function on the
wenzelm@22126
  2326
field rather than the new value: r(|A := x|) is translated to A_update
wenzelm@22126
  2327
(K x) r The K-combinator that is internally used is called K_record.
schirmer@21226
  2328
INCOMPATIBILITY: Usage of the plain update functions has to be
schirmer@21226
  2329
adapted.
schirmer@21226
  2330
 
wenzelm@24800

* Class "semiring_0" now contains annihilation axioms x * 0 = 0 and 0
wenzelm@24800
  2332
* x = 0, which are required for a semiring.  Richer structures do not
wenzelm@24800
  2333
inherit from semiring_0 anymore, because this property is a theorem
wenzelm@24800
  2334
there, not an axiom.  INCOMPATIBILITY: In instances of semiring_0,
wenzelm@24800
  2335
there is more to prove, but this is mostly trivial.
wenzelm@24800
  2336
wenzelm@24800
  2337
* Class "recpower" is generalized to arbitrary monoids, not just
wenzelm@24800
  2338
commutative semirings.  INCOMPATIBILITY: may need to incorporate
haftmann@25163
  2339
commutativity or semiring properties additionally.
haftmann@21215
  2340
haftmann@21099
  2341
* Constant "List.list_all2" in List.thy now uses authentic syntax.
wenzelm@24800
  2342
INCOMPATIBILITY: translations containing list_all2 may go wrong,
wenzelm@24800
  2343
better use 'abbreviation'.
wenzelm@24800
  2344
wenzelm@24800

wenzelm@24800
  2346
wenzelm@22126
  2347
* Numeral syntax: type 'bin' which was a mere type copy of 'int' has
wenzelm@24800
  2348
been abandoned in favour of plain 'int'.  INCOMPATIBILITY --
wenzelm@22126
  2349
significant changes for setting up numeral syntax for types:
wenzelm@24800
  2350
  - New constants Numeral.pred and Numeral.succ instead
haftmann@20485
  2351
      of former Numeral.bin_pred and Numeral.bin_succ.
haftmann@20485
  2352
  - Use integer operations instead of bin_add, bin_mult and so on.
haftmann@20485
  2353
  - Numeral simplification theorems named Numeral.numeral_simps instead of Bin_simps.
haftmann@20485
  2354
  - ML structure Bin_Simprocs now named Int_Numeral_Base_Simprocs.
haftmann@20485

  2356
See src/HOL/Integ/IntArith.thy for an example setup.
wenzelm@25177
  2357
wenzelm@25177
  2358
* Command 'normal_form' computes the normal form of a term that may
wenzelm@25177
  2359
contain free variables.  For example ``normal_form "rev [a, b, c]"''
wenzelm@25177
  2360
produces ``[b, c, a]'' (without proof).  This command is suitable for
wenzelm@25177
  2361
heavy-duty computations because the functions are compiled to ML
wenzelm@25177
  2362
first.  Correspondingly, a method "normalization" is provided.  See
wenzelm@25177
  2363
further src/HOL/ex/NormalForm.thy and src/Tools/nbe.ML.
nipkow@19895
  2364
wenzelm@17996
  2365
* Alternative iff syntax "A <-> B" for equality on bool (with priority
wenzelm@17996
  2366
25 like -->); output depends on the "iff" print_mode, the default is
wenzelm@17996
  2367
"A = B" (with priority 50).
wenzelm@17996
  2368
wenzelm@21265
  2369
* Relations less (<) and less_eq (<=) are also available on type bool.
wenzelm@21265
  2370
Modified syntax to disallow nesting without explicit parentheses,
wenzelm@24800
  2371
e.g. "(x < y) < z" or "x < (y < z)", but NOT "x < y < z".  Potential
wenzelm@24800
  2372
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@21265
  2373
nipkow@18674
  2374
* "LEAST x:A. P" expands to "LEAST x. x:A & P" (input only).
nipkow@18674
  2375
krauss@20716
  2376
* Relation composition operator "op O" now has precedence 75 and binds
krauss@20716
  2377
stronger than union and intersection. INCOMPATIBILITY.
krauss@20716
  2378
wenzelm@22126
  2379
* The old set interval syntax "{m..n(}" (and relatives) has been
wenzelm@22126
  2380
removed.  Use "{m..<n}" (and relatives) instead.
nipkow@19377
  2381
wenzelm@17865
  2382
* In the context of the assumption "~(s = t)" the Simplifier rewrites
wenzelm@24800
  2383
"t = s" to False (by simproc "neq").  INCOMPATIBILITY, consider using
wenzelm@24800
  2384
``declare [[simproc del: neq]]''.
wenzelm@24800
  2385
wenzelm@24800
  2386
* Simplifier: "m dvd n" where m and n are numbers is evaluated to
wenzelm@24800
  2387
True/False.
wenzelm@24800
  2388
wenzelm@24800
  2389
* Theorem Cons_eq_map_conv no longer declared as "simp".
nipkow@19211
  2390
ballarin@19279
  2391
* Theorem setsum_mult renamed to setsum_right_distrib.
ballarin@19279
  2392
nipkow@19211
  2393
* Prefer ex1I over ex_ex1I in single-step reasoning, e.g. by the
wenzelm@22126
  2394
``rule'' method.
wenzelm@22126
  2395
wenzelm@24800
  2396
* Reimplemented methods "sat" and "satx", with several improvements:
wenzelm@24800
  2397
goals no longer need to be stated as "<prems> ==> False", equivalences
wenzelm@24800
  2398
(i.e. "=" on type bool) are handled, variable names of the form
wenzelm@24800
  2399
"lit_<n>" are no longer reserved, significant speedup.
wenzelm@24800
  2400
wenzelm@24800
  2401
* Methods "sat" and "satx" can now replay MiniSat proof traces.
wenzelm@22126
  2402
zChaff is still supported as well.
wenzelm@22126
  2403
wenzelm@22126
  2404
* 'inductive' and 'datatype': provide projections of mutual rules,
wenzelm@22126
  2405
bundled as foo_bar.inducts;
wenzelm@22126
  2406
wenzelm@22126
  2407
* Library: moved theories Parity, GCD, Binomial, Infinite_Set to
wenzelm@22126
  2408
Library.
wenzelm@21256
  2409
wenzelm@21256
  2410
* Library: moved theory Accessible_Part to main HOL.
wenzelm@19572
  2411
wenzelm@18446
  2412
* Library: added theory Coinductive_List of potentially infinite lists
wenzelm@18446
  2413
as greatest fixed-point.
wenzelm@18399
  2414
wenzelm@19254
  2415
* Library: added theory AssocList which implements (finite) maps as
schirmer@19252
  2416
association lists.
webertj@17809
  2417
wenzelm@24800
  2418
* Method "evaluation" solves goals (i.e. a boolean expression)
wenzelm@24800
  2419
efficiently by compiling it to ML.  The goal is "proved" (via an
wenzelm@24800
  2420
oracle) if it evaluates to True.
wenzelm@20807
  2421
wenzelm@20807
  2422
* Linear arithmetic now splits certain operators (e.g. min, max, abs)
wenzelm@24800
  2423
also when invoked by the simplifier.  This results in the Simplifier
wenzelm@24800
  2424
being more powerful on arithmetic goals.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  2425
Configuration option fast_arith_split_limit=0 recovers the old
wenzelm@24800
  2426
behavior.
webertj@20217
  2427
wenzelm@22126
  2428
* Support for hex (0x20) and binary (0b1001) numerals.
wenzelm@19254
  2429
wenzelm@20807
  2430
* New method: reify eqs (t), where eqs are equations for an
wenzelm@20807
  2431
interpretation I :: 'a list => 'b => 'c and t::'c is an optional
wenzelm@20807
  2432
parameter, computes a term s::'b and a list xs::'a list and proves the
wenzelm@20807
  2433
theorem I xs s = t. This is also known as reification or quoting. The
wenzelm@20807
  2434
resulting theorem is applied to the subgoal to substitute t with I xs
wenzelm@20807
  2435
s.  If t is omitted, the subgoal itself is reified.
wenzelm@20807
  2436
wenzelm@20807
  2437
* New method: reflection corr_thm eqs (t). The parameters eqs and (t)
wenzelm@20807
  2438
are as explained above. corr_thm is a theorem for I vs (f t) = I vs t,
wenzelm@20807
  2439
where f is supposed to be a computable function (in the sense of code
wenzelm@20807
  2440
generattion). The method uses reify to compute s and xs as above then
wenzelm@20807
  2441
applies corr_thm and uses normalization by evaluation to "prove" f s =
wenzelm@20807
  2442
r and finally gets the theorem t = r, which is again applied to the
wenzelm@25177
  2443
subgoal. An Example is available in src/HOL/ex/ReflectionEx.thy.
wenzelm@25177
  2444
wenzelm@25177
  2445
* Reflection: Automatic reification now handels binding, an example is

  2446
available in src/HOL/ex/ReflectionEx.thy
wenzelm@20807
  2447
wenzelm@25397
  2448
* HOL-Statespace: ``State Spaces: The Locale Way'' introduces a
schirmer@25409
  2449
command 'statespace' that is similar to 'record', but introduces an
wenzelm@25397
  2450
abstract specification based on the locale infrastructure instead of
wenzelm@25397
  2451
HOL types.  This leads to extra flexibility in composing state spaces,
wenzelm@25397
  2452
in particular multiple inheritance and renaming of components.

huffman@22971

  2592
* Context data interfaces (Theory/Proof/GenericDataFun): removed
wenzelm@24800
  2593
name/print, uninitialized data defaults to ad-hoc copy of empty value,
wenzelm@24800
  2594
init only required for impure data. INCOMPATIBILITY: empty really need
wenzelm@24800
  2595
to be empty (no dependencies on theory content!)
wenzelm@24800
  2596
wenzelm@19508
  2597
* Pure/kernel: consts certification ignores sort constraints given in
wenzelm@24800
  2598
signature declarations. (This information is not relevant to the
wenzelm@24800
  2599
logic, but only for type inference.) SIGNIFICANT INTERNAL CHANGE,
wenzelm@24800
  2600
potential INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@19508
  2601
wenzelm@19508
  2602
* Pure: axiomatic type classes are now purely definitional, with
wenzelm@19508
  2603
explicit proofs of class axioms and super class relations performed
wenzelm@24706
  2604
internally. See Pure/axclass.ML for the main internal interfaces --
wenzelm@19508
  2605
notably AxClass.define_class supercedes AxClass.add_axclass, and
wenzelm@24706
  2606
AxClass.axiomatize_class/classrel/arity supersede
wenzelm@19508
  2607
Sign.add_classes/classrel/arities.
wenzelm@19508
  2608
wenzelm@19006
  2609
* Pure/Isar: Args/Attrib parsers operate on Context.generic --
wenzelm@19006
  2610
global/local versions on theory vs. Proof.context have been
wenzelm@19006
  2611
discontinued; Attrib.syntax and Method.syntax have been adapted
wenzelm@19006
  2612
accordingly.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt parser expressions for
wenzelm@19006
  2613
attributes, methods, etc.
wenzelm@18642
  2614
wenzelm@18446
  2615
* Pure: several functions of signature "... -> theory -> theory * ..."
wenzelm@18446
  2616
have been reoriented to "... -> theory -> ... * theory" in order to
wenzelm@18446
  2617
allow natural usage in combination with the ||>, ||>>, |-> and
wenzelm@18446
  2618
fold_map combinators.
haftmann@18051
  2619
wenzelm@21647
  2620
* Pure: official theorem names (closed derivations) and additional
wenzelm@21647
  2621
comments (tags) are now strictly separate.  Name hints -- which are
wenzelm@21647
  2622
maintained as tags -- may be attached any time without affecting the
wenzelm@21647
  2623
derivation.
wenzelm@21647
  2624
wenzelm@18020
  2625
* Pure: primitive rule lift_rule now takes goal cterm instead of an
wenzelm@18145
  2626
actual goal state (thm).  Use Thm.lift_rule (Thm.cprem_of st i) to
wenzelm@18020
  2627
achieve the old behaviour.
wenzelm@18020
  2628
wenzelm@18020
  2629
* Pure: the "Goal" constant is now called "prop", supporting a
wenzelm@18020
  2630
slightly more general idea of ``protecting'' meta-level rule
wenzelm@18020
  2631
statements.
wenzelm@18020
  2632
wenzelm@20040
  2633
* Pure: Logic.(un)varify only works in a global context, which is now
wenzelm@20040
  2634
enforced instead of silently assumed.  INCOMPATIBILITY, may use
wenzelm@20040
  2635
Logic.legacy_(un)varify as temporary workaround.
wenzelm@20040
  2636
wenzelm@20090
  2637
* Pure: structure Name provides scalable operations for generating
wenzelm@20090
  2638
internal variable names, notably Name.variants etc.  This replaces
wenzelm@20090
  2639
some
