*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES ***
nipkow@10224
     6
wenzelm@10634
     7
* HOL/Real: "rinv" and "hrinv" replaced by overloaded "inverse"
wenzelm@10858
     8
operation;
bauerg@10609
     9
nipkow@10224
    10
* HOL: induct renamed to lfp_induct;
nipkow@10224
    11
paulson@10288
    12
* HOL: contrapos, contrapos2 renamed to contrapos_nn, contrapos_pp;
paulson@10288
    13
wenzelm@10858
    14
* HOL: infix "dvd" now has priority 50 rather than 70 (because it is a
wenzelm@10858
    15
relation); infix "^^" has been renamed "``"; infix "``" has been
wenzelm@10858
    16
renamed "`"; "univalent" has been renamed "single_valued";
nipkow@10793
    17
nipkow@10868
    18
* HOLCF: infix "`" has been renamed "$"; the symbol syntax is \<cdot>;
nipkow@10856
    19
wenzelm@10391
    20
* Isar: 'obtain' no longer declares "that" fact as simp/intro;
wenzelm@10391
    21
wenzelm@10401
    22
* Isar/HOL: method 'induct' now handles non-atomic goals; as a
wenzelm@10401
    23
consequence, it is no longer monotonic wrt. the local goal context
wenzelm@10401
    24
(which is now passed through the inductive cases);
wenzelm@10401

*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@10245
    28
wenzelm@10245
    29
* improved isabelle style files; more abstract symbol implementation
wenzelm@10245
    30
(should now use \isamath{...} and \isatext{...} in custom symbol
wenzelm@10245
    31
definitions);
wenzelm@10245
    32
wenzelm@10858
    33
* \isabellestyle{NAME} selects version of Isabelle output (currently
wenzelm@10858
    34
available: are "it" for near math-mode best-style output, "sl" for
wenzelm@10858
    35
slanted text style, and "tt" for plain type-writer; if no
wenzelm@10858
    36
\isabellestyle command is given, output is according to slanted
wenzelm@10858
    37
type-writer);
wenzelm@10858
    38
wenzelm@10322
    39
* support sub/super scripts (for single symbols only), input syntax is
wenzelm@10322
    40
like this: "A\<^sup>*" or "A\<^sup>\<star>";
wenzelm@10322
    41
wenzelm@10858
    42
* some more standard symbols; see Appendix A of the system manual for
wenzelm@10858
    43
the complete list;
wenzelm@10858
    44
wenzelm@10634
    45
* antiquotation @{goals} and @{subgoals} for output of *dynamic* goals
wenzelm@10634
    46
state; Note that presentation of goal states does not conform to
wenzelm@10634
    47
actual human-readable proof documents.  Please do not include goal
wenzelm@10634
    48
states into document output unless you really know what you are doing!
wenzelm@10322
    49
wenzelm@10862
    50
* isatool unsymbolize tunes sources for plain ASCII communication;
wenzelm@10862
    51
wenzelm@10322
    52
wenzelm@10306
    53
*** Isar ***
wenzelm@10306
    54
wenzelm@10547
    55
* Pure: Isar now suffers initial goal statements to contain unbound
wenzelm@10547
    56
schematic variables (this does not conform to actual readable proof
wenzelm@10547
    57
documents, due to unpredictable outcome and non-compositional proof
wenzelm@10547
    58
checking); users who know what they are doing may use schematic goals
wenzelm@10547
    59
for Prolog-style synthesis of proven results;
wenzelm@10547
    60
wenzelm@10391
    61
* Pure: assumption method (an implicit finishing) now handles actual
wenzelm@10391
    62
rules as well;
wenzelm@10391
    63
wenzelm@10391
    64
* Pure: improved 'obtain' --- moved to Pure, insert "that" into
wenzelm@10391
    65
initial goal, declare "that" only as Pure intro (only for single
wenzelm@10391
    66
steps); the "that" rule assumption may now be involved in implicit
wenzelm@10391
    67
finishing, thus ".." becomes a feasible for trivial obtains;
wenzelm@10391
    68
wenzelm@10391
    69
* Pure: default proof step now includes 'intro_classes'; thus trivial
wenzelm@10391
    70
instance proofs may be performed by "..";
wenzelm@10391
    71
wenzelm@10391
    72
* Pure: ?thesis / ?this / "..." now work for pure meta-level
wenzelm@10391
    73
statements as well;
wenzelm@10306
    74
wenzelm@10858
    75
* Pure: the builtin notion of 'finished' goal now includes the ==-refl
wenzelm@10858
    76
rule (as well as the assumption rule);
wenzelm@10858
    77
wenzelm@10858
    78
* Pure: 'thm_deps' command visualizes dependencies of theorems and
wenzelm@10858
    79
lemmas, using the graph browser tool;
wenzelm@10858
    80
wenzelm@10944
    81
* Pure: predict failure of "show" in interactive mode;
wenzelm@10944
    82
wenzelm@10401
    83
* HOL: improved method 'induct' --- now handles non-atomic goals
wenzelm@10401
    84
(potential INCOMPATIBILITY); tuned error handling;
wenzelm@10401
    85
wenzelm@10557
    86
* HOL: cases and induct rules now provide explicit hints about the
wenzelm@10547
    87
number of facts to be consumed (0 for "type" and 1 for "set" rules);
wenzelm@10547
    88
any remaining facts are inserted into the goal verbatim;
wenzelm@10547
    89
wenzelm@10858
    90
* HOL: local contexts (aka cases) may now contain term bindings as
wenzelm@10858
    91
well; the 'cases' and 'induct' methods new provide a ?case binding for
wenzelm@10858
    92
the result to be shown in each case;
wenzelm@10858
    93
wenzelm@10770
    94
* HOL: added 'recdef_tc' command;
wenzelm@10770
    95
wenzelm@10306
    96
wenzelm@10245
    97
*** HOL ***
wenzelm@10245
    98
wenzelm@10245
    99
* HOL/Library: a collection of generic theories to be used together
wenzelm@10245
   100
with main HOL; the theory loader path already includes this directory
wenzelm@10245
   101
by default; the following existing theories have been moved here:
wenzelm@10245
   102
HOL/Induct/Multiset, HOL/Induct/Acc (as Accessible_Part), HOL/While
wenzelm@10337
   103
(as While_Combinator), HOL/Lex/Prefix (as List_Prefix);
wenzelm@10245
   104
wenzelm@10966
   105
* HOL/Unix: "Some aspects of Unix file-system security", a typical
wenzelm@10966
   106
modelling and verification task performed in Isabelle/HOL +
wenzelm@10966
   107
Isabelle/Isar + Isabelle document preparation (by Markus Wenzel).
wenzelm@10966
   108
wenzelm@10514
   109
* HOL basics: added overloaded operations "inverse" and "divide"
wenzelm@10726
   110
(infix "/"), syntax for generic "abs" operation, generic summation
wenzelm@10726
   111
operator;
wenzelm@10452
   112
wenzelm@10391
   113
* HOL/typedef: simplified package, provide more useful rules (see also
wenzelm@10391
   114
HOL/subset.thy);
wenzelm@10391
   115
wenzelm@10915
   116
* HOL/datatype: induction rule for arbitrarily branching datatypes is
wenzelm@10915
   117
now expressed as a proper nested rule (old-style tactic scripts may
wenzelm@10915
   118
require atomize_strip_tac to cope with non-atomic premises);
wenzelm@10915
   119
wenzelm@10915
   120
* HOL: renamed theory "Prod" to "Product_Type", renamed "split" rule
wenzelm@10915
   121
to "split_conv" (old name still available for compatibility);
wenzelm@10915
   122
wenzelm@10915
   123
* HOL: improved concrete syntax for strings (e.g. allows translation
wenzelm@10915
   124
rules with string literals);
wenzelm@10915
   125
wenzelm@10944
   126
* HOL-Hyperreal: a new target, extending HOL-Real with the hyperreals
wenzelm@10944
   127
and Fleuriot's mechanization of analysis;
paulson@10756
   128
paulson@10756
   129
* HOL-Real, HOL-Hyperreals: improved arithmetic simplification;
wenzelm@10391
   130
wenzelm@10858
   131
paulson@10474
   132
*** CTT ***
paulson@10474
   133
wenzelm@10547
   134
* CTT: x-symbol support for Pi, Sigma, -->, : (membership); note that
wenzelm@10547
   135
"lam" is displayed as TWO lambda-symbols
paulson@10474
   136
wenzelm@10547
   137
* CTT: theory Main now available, containing everything (that is, Bool
wenzelm@10547
   138
and Arith);
wenzelm@10547
   139
paulson@10474
   140
wenzelm@10391
   141
*** General ***
wenzelm@10391
   142
wenzelm@10664
   143
* print modes "brackets" and "no_brackets" control output of nested =>
wenzelm@10664
   144
(types) and ==> (props); the default behaviour is "brackets";
wenzelm@10664
   145
wenzelm@10634
   146
* system: support Poly/ML 4.0 (current beta versions);
wenzelm@10634
   147
wenzelm@10547
   148
* Pure: the Simplifier has been implemented properly as a derived rule
wenzelm@10547
   149
outside of the actual kernel (at last!); the overall performance
wenzelm@10547
   150
penalty in practical applications is about 50%, while reliability of
wenzelm@10547
   151
the Isabelle inference kernel has been greatly improved;
wenzelm@10547
   152
wenzelm@10391
   153
* Provers: fast_tac (and friends) now handle actual object-logic rules
wenzelm@10391
   154
as assumptions as well;
wenzelm@10391
   155
wenzelm@10391
   156
wenzelm@10245
   157
wenzelm@10103
   158
New in Isabelle99-1 (October 2000)

   161
*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES ***
paulson@8014
   162
wenzelm@8848
   163
* HOL: simplification of natural numbers is much changed; to partly
wenzelm@8848
   164
recover the old behaviour (e.g. to prevent n+n rewriting to #2*n)
wenzelm@8848
   165
issue the following ML commands:
wenzelm@8848
   166
wenzelm@8848
   167
  Delsimprocs Nat_Numeral_Simprocs.cancel_numerals;
wenzelm@8848
   168
  Delsimprocs [Nat_Numeral_Simprocs.combine_numerals];
paulson@8788
   169
wenzelm@10129
   170
* HOL: simplification no longer dives into case-expressions; this is
wenzelm@10129
   171
controlled by "t.weak_case_cong" for each datatype t;
wenzelm@10003
   172
wenzelm@10003
   173
* HOL: nat_less_induct renamed to less_induct;
wenzelm@10003
   174
wenzelm@10003
   175
* HOL: systematic renaming of the SOME (Eps) rules, may use isatool
wenzelm@10003
   176
fixsome to patch .thy and .ML sources automatically;
paulson@8967
   177
wenzelm@10003
   178
  select_equality  -> some_equality
wenzelm@10003
   179
  select_eq_Ex     -> some_eq_ex
wenzelm@10003
   180
  selectI2EX       -> someI2_ex
wenzelm@10003
   181
  selectI2         -> someI2
wenzelm@10003
   182
  selectI          -> someI
wenzelm@10003
   183
  select1_equality -> some1_equality
wenzelm@10003
   184
  Eps_sym_eq       -> some_sym_eq_trivial
wenzelm@10003
   185
  Eps_eq           -> some_eq_trivial
wenzelm@10003
   186
wenzelm@10003
   187
* HOL: exhaust_tac on datatypes superceded by new generic case_tac;
wenzelm@10003
   188
wenzelm@10003
   189
* HOL: removed obsolete theorem binding expand_if (refer to split_if
wenzelm@10003
   190
instead);
wenzelm@10003
   191
wenzelm@10003
   192
* HOL: the recursion equations generated by 'recdef' are now called
wenzelm@10003
   193
f.simps instead of f.rules;
wenzelm@10003
   194
wenzelm@10003
   195
* HOL: qed_spec_mp now also handles bounded ALL as well;
wenzelm@10003
   196
wenzelm@10003
   197
* HOL: 0 is now overloaded, so the type constraint ":: nat" may
wenzelm@10003
   198
sometimes be needed;
wenzelm@10003
   199
wenzelm@10003
   200
* HOL: the constant for "f``x" is now "image" rather than "op ``";
paulson@8014
   201
paulson@10065
   202
* HOL: the constant for "f-``x" is now "vimage" rather than "op -``";
paulson@10065
   203
wenzelm@9330
   204
* HOL: the disjoint sum is now "<+>" instead of "Plus"; the cartesian
wenzelm@9330
   205
product is now "<*>" instead of "Times"; the lexicographic product is
wenzelm@9330
   206
now "<*lex*>" instead of "**";
nipkow@8705
   207
wenzelm@10003
   208
* HOL: theory Sexp is now in HOL/Induct examples (it used to be part
wenzelm@10003
   209
of main HOL, but was unused); better use HOL's datatype package;
paulson@9971
   210
wenzelm@10137
   211
* HOL: removed "symbols" syntax for constant "override" of theory Map;
wenzelm@10137
   212
the old syntax may be recovered as follows:
wenzelm@10137
   213
wenzelm@10137
   214
  syntax (symbols)
wenzelm@10137
   215
    override  :: "('a ~=> 'b) => ('a ~=> 'b) => ('a ~=> 'b)"
wenzelm@10137
   216
      (infixl "\\<oplus>" 100)
wenzelm@10137
   217
wenzelm@8848
   218
* HOL/Real: "rabs" replaced by overloaded "abs" function;
wenzelm@8848
   219
wenzelm@8887
   220
* HOL/ML: even fewer consts are declared as global (see theories Ord,
wenzelm@8887
   221
Lfp, Gfp, WF); this only affects ML packages that refer to const names
wenzelm@8887
   222
internally;
wenzelm@8887
   223
wenzelm@10003
   224
* HOL and ZF: syntax for quotienting wrt an equivalence relation
wenzelm@10003
   225
changed from A/r to A//r;
wenzelm@9908
   226
wenzelm@10003
   227
* ZF: new treatment of arithmetic (nat & int) may break some old
wenzelm@10003
   228
proofs;
wenzelm@8921
   229
wenzelm@10003
   230
* Isar: renamed some attributes (RS -> THEN, simplify -> simplified,
wenzelm@10003
   231
rulify -> rule_format, elimify -> elim_format, ...);
paulson@9542
   232
wenzelm@9941
   233
* Isar/Provers: intro/elim/dest attributes changed; renamed
wenzelm@9941
   234
intro/intro!/intro!! flags to intro!/intro/intro? (in most cases, one
wenzelm@9937
   235
should have to change intro!! to intro? only); replaced "delrule" by
wenzelm@9937
   236
"rule del";
wenzelm@9437
   237
wenzelm@9612
   238
* Isar/HOL: renamed "intrs" to "intros" in inductive definitions;
wenzelm@9612
   239
wenzelm@9437
   240
* Provers: strengthened force_tac by using new first_best_tac;
oheimb@9402
   241
wenzelm@10003
   242
* LaTeX document preparation: several changes of isabelle.sty (see
wenzelm@10003
   243
lib/texinputs);
wenzelm@8729
   244
paulson@8014
   245
wenzelm@8487
   246
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@8358
   247
wenzelm@9198
   248
* formal comments (text blocks etc.) in new-style theories may now
wenzelm@9753
   249
contain antiquotations of thm/prop/term/typ/text to be presented
wenzelm@9753
   250
according to latex print mode; concrete syntax is like this:
wenzelm@9753
   251
@{term[show_types] "f(x) = a + x"};
wenzelm@9198
   252
wenzelm@8358
   253
* isatool mkdir provides easy setup of Isabelle session directories,
wenzelm@8518
   254
including proper document sources;
wenzelm@8358
   255
wenzelm@8358
   256
* generated LaTeX sources are now deleted after successful run
wenzelm@8358
   257
(isatool document -c); may retain a copy somewhere else via -D option
wenzelm@8358
   258
of isatool usedir;
wenzelm@8358
   259
wenzelm@8566
   260
* isatool usedir -D now lets isatool latex -o sty update the Isabelle
wenzelm@10003
   261
style files, achieving self-contained LaTeX sources and simplifying
wenzelm@10003
   262
LaTeX debugging;
wenzelm@8566
   263
wenzelm@8518
   264
* old-style theories now produce (crude) LaTeX output as well;
wenzelm@8358
   265
wenzelm@9057
   266
* browser info session directories are now self-contained (may be put
wenzelm@9437
   267
on WWW server seperately); improved graphs of nested sessions; removed
wenzelm@9437
   268
graph for 'all sessions';
wenzelm@9057
   269
wenzelm@10003
   270
* several improvements in isabelle style files; \isabellestyle{it}
wenzelm@10003
   271
produces fake math mode output; \isamarkupheader is now \section by
wenzelm@10003
   272
default; see lib/texinputs/isabelle.sty etc.;
wenzelm@9489
   273
wenzelm@8358
   274
wenzelm@8184
   275
*** Isar ***
wenzelm@8184
   276
wenzelm@10003
   277
* Isar/Pure: local results and corresponding term bindings are now
wenzelm@10003
   278
subject to Hindley-Milner polymorphism (similar to ML); this
wenzelm@10003
   279
accommodates incremental type-inference very nicely;
wenzelm@8283
   280

* Isar/Pure: new derived language element 'obtain' supports
wenzelm@10003
   282
generalized existence reasoning;
wenzelm@8621
   283
wenzelm@10003
   284
* Isar/Pure: new calculational elements 'moreover' and 'ultimately'
wenzelm@10003
   285
support accumulation of results, without applying any rules yet;
wenzelm@10003
   286
useful to collect intermediate results without explicit name
wenzelm@10003
   287
references, and for use with transitivity rules with more than 2
wenzelm@10003
   288
premises;
wenzelm@8184
   289
wenzelm@10003
   290
* Isar/Pure: scalable support for case-analysis type proofs: new
wenzelm@10003
   291
'case' language element refers to local contexts symbolically, as
wenzelm@10003
   292
produced by certain proof methods; internally, case names are attached
wenzelm@10003
   293
to theorems as "tags";
wenzelm@8440
   294
wenzelm@10003
   295
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'hide' removes declarations from
wenzelm@9330
   296
class/type/const name spaces;
wenzelm@9330
   297
wenzelm@10003
   298
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'defs' supports option "(overloaded)" to
wenzelm@9330
   299
indicate potential overloading;
wenzelm@9330
   300
wenzelm@10003
   301
* Isar/Pure: changed syntax of local blocks from {{ }} to { };
wenzelm@8621
   302
wenzelm@10003
   303
* Isar/Pure: syntax of sorts made 'inner', i.e. have to write
wenzelm@10003
   304
"{a,b,c}" instead of {a,b,c};
wenzelm@9011
   305
wenzelm@10003
   306
* Isar/Pure now provides its own version of intro/elim/dest
wenzelm@10003
   307
attributes; useful for building new logics, but beware of confusion
wenzelm@10003
   308
with the version in Provers/classical;
wenzelm@9612
   309
wenzelm@10003
   310
* Isar/Pure: the local context of (non-atomic) goals is provided via
wenzelm@10003
   311
case name 'antecedent';
wenzelm@8440
   312
wenzelm@10003
   313
* Isar/Pure: removed obsolete 'transfer' attribute (transfer of thms
wenzelm@10003
   314
to the current context is now done automatically);
wenzelm@9383
   315
wenzelm@10003
   316
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'method_setup' provides a simple interface
wenzelm@10003
   317
for definining proof methods in ML;
wenzelm@9612
   318
wenzelm@10003
   319
* Isar/Provers: intro/elim/dest attributes changed; renamed
wenzelm@9941
   320
intro/intro!/intro!! flags to intro!/intro/intro? (INCOMPATIBILITY, in
wenzelm@9941
   321
most cases, one should have to change intro!! to intro? only);
wenzelm@9941
   322
replaced "delrule" by "rule del";
wenzelm@8283
   323
wenzelm@10003
   324
* Isar/Provers: new 'hypsubst' method, plain 'subst' method and
wenzelm@10003
   325
'symmetric' attribute (the latter supercedes [RS sym]);
wenzelm@10003
   326
wenzelm@10003
   327
* Isar/Provers: splitter support (via 'split' attribute and 'simp'
wenzelm@10003
   328
method modifier); 'simp' method: 'only:' modifier removes loopers as
wenzelm@10003
   329
well (including splits);
wenzelm@10003
   330
wenzelm@10003
   331
* Isar/Provers: Simplifier and Classical methods now support all kind
wenzelm@10003
   332
of modifiers used in the past, including 'cong', 'iff', etc.
wenzelm@10003
   333
wenzelm@10003
   334
* Isar/Provers: added 'fastsimp' and 'clarsimp' methods (combination
wenzelm@10003
   335
of Simplifier and Classical reasoner);
wenzelm@10003
   336
wenzelm@10003
   337
* Isar/HOL: new proof method 'cases' and improved version of 'induct'
wenzelm@10003
   338
now support named cases; major packages (inductive, datatype, primrec,
wenzelm@10003
   339
recdef) support case names and properly name parameters;
wenzelm@9612
   340
wenzelm@10003
   341
* Isar/HOL: new transitivity rules for substitution in inequalities --
wenzelm@10003
   342
monotonicity conditions are extracted to be proven at end of
wenzelm@10003
   343
calculations;
wenzelm@10003
   344
wenzelm@10003
   345
* Isar/HOL: removed 'case_split' thm binding, should use 'cases' proof
wenzelm@10003
   346
method anyway;
wenzelm@10003
   347
wenzelm@10003
   348
* Isar/HOL: removed old expand_if = split_if; theorems if_splits =
wenzelm@10003
   349
split_if split_if_asm; datatype package provides theorems foo.splits =
wenzelm@10003
   350
foo.split foo.split_asm for each datatype;
wenzelm@10003
   351
wenzelm@10003
   352
* Isar/HOL: tuned inductive package, rename "intrs" to "intros"
wenzelm@10003
   353
(potential INCOMPATIBILITY), emulation of mk_cases feature for proof
wenzelm@10003
   354
scripts: new 'inductive_cases' command and 'ind_cases' method; (Note:
wenzelm@10003
   355
use "(cases (simplified))" method in proper proof texts);
wenzelm@10003
   356
wenzelm@10003
   357
* Isar/HOL: added global 'arith_split' attribute for 'arith' method;
wenzelm@10003
   358
wenzelm@10003
   359
* Isar: names of theorems etc. may be natural numbers as well;
wenzelm@10003
   360
wenzelm@10003
   361
* Isar: 'pr' command: optional arguments for goals_limit and
wenzelm@9724
   362
ProofContext.prems_limit; no longer prints theory contexts, but only
wenzelm@9724
   363
proof states;
wenzelm@8487
   364
wenzelm@10003
   365
* Isar: diagnostic commands 'pr', 'thm', 'prop', 'term', 'typ' admit
wenzelm@8518
   366
additional print modes to be specified; e.g. "pr(latex)" will print
wenzelm@8518
   367
proof state according to the Isabelle LaTeX style;
wenzelm@8487
   368
wenzelm@10003
   369
* Isar: improved support for emulating tactic scripts, including proof
wenzelm@9612
   370
methods 'rule_tac' etc., 'cut_tac', 'thin_tac', 'subgoal_tac',
wenzelm@9612
   371
'rename_tac', 'rotate_tac', 'tactic', and 'case_tac' / 'induct_tac'
wenzelm@9612
   372
(for HOL datatypes);
wenzelm@8534
   373
wenzelm@10003
   374
* Isar: simplified (more robust) goal selection of proof methods: 1st
wenzelm@10003
   375
goal, all goals, or explicit goal specifier (tactic emulation); thus
wenzelm@10003
   376
'proof method scripts' have to be in depth-first order;
wenzelm@8673
   377
wenzelm@10003
   378
* Isar: tuned 'let' syntax: replaced 'as' keyword by 'and';
wenzelm@8729
   379
wenzelm@10003
   380
* Isar: removed 'help' command, which hasn't been too helpful anyway;
wenzelm@10003
   381
should instead use individual commands for printing items
wenzelm@10003
   382
(print_commands, print_methods etc.);
wenzelm@9224
   383
wenzelm@10003
   384
* Isar: added 'nothing' --- the empty list of theorems;

wenzelm@10164
   415
wenzelm@10003

wenzelm@10003
   418
* HOL/ex/Multiquote: example of multiple nested quotations and
wenzelm@10003
   419
anti-quotations -- basically a generalized version of de-Bruijn
wenzelm@10003
   420
representation; very useful in avoiding lifting of operations;
wenzelm@8848
   421
wenzelm@9612
   422
* HOL/record: added general record equality rule to simpset; fixed
wenzelm@9612

   426
* HOL: 0 is now overloaded over the new sort "zero", allowing its use with

other numeric types and also as the identity of groups, rings, etc.;
paulson@8967
   428
paulson@8967
   429
* HOL: new axclass plus_ac0 for addition with the AC-laws and 0 as identity.
paulson@8967
   430
Types nat and int belong to this axclass;
paulson@8967
   431
wenzelm@10003
   432
* HOL: greatly improved simplification involving numerals of type nat, int, real:
paulson@8788
   433
   (i + #8 + j) = Suc k simplifies to  #7 + (i + j) = k
paulson@8832
   434
   i*j + k + j*#3*i     simplifies to  #4*(i*j) + k
paulson@8832
   435
  two terms #m*u and #n*u are replaced by #(m+n)*u
paulson@8832
   436
    (where #m, #n and u can implicitly be 1; this is simproc combine_numerals)
paulson@8832
   437
  and the term/formula #m*u+x ~~ #n*u+y simplifies simplifies to #(m-n)+x ~~ y
paulson@8832

    or x ~~ #(n-m)+y, where ~~ is one of = < <= or - (simproc cancel_numerals);
paulson@8736

* HOL: meson_tac is available (previously in ex/meson.ML); it is a
wenzelm@10003
   441
powerful prover for predicate logic but knows nothing of clasets; see
wenzelm@10003

ex/mesontest.ML and ex/mesontest2.ML for example applications;
paulson@9835

   444
* HOL: new version of "case_tac" subsumes both boolean case split and
wenzelm@8440
   445
"exhaust_tac" on datatypes; INCOMPATIBILITY: exhaust_tac no longer
wenzelm@8518

exists, may define val exhaust_tac = case_tac for ad-hoc portability;
wenzelm@8440
   447
wenzelm@8848
   448
* HOL: simplification no longer dives into case-expressions: only the
wenzelm@10129
   449
selector expression is simplified, but not the remaining arms; to
wenzelm@10129
   450
enable full simplification of case-expressions for datatype t, you may
wenzelm@10129
   451
remove t.weak_case_cong from the simpset, either globally (Delcongs

   454
* HOL/recdef: the recursion equations generated by 'recdef' for
wenzelm@8848
   455
function 'f' are now called f.simps instead of f.rules; if all
wenzelm@8848
   456
termination conditions are proved automatically, these simplification
wenzelm@8848
   457
rules are added to the simpset, as in primrec; rules may be named
wenzelm@8848

individually as well, resulting in a separate list of theorems for
wenzelm@8848
   459
each equation;
wenzelm@8848
   460
wenzelm@9489
   461
* HOL/While is a new theory that provides a while-combinator. It
wenzelm@9489
   462
permits the definition of tail-recursive functions without the
wenzelm@9489
   463
provision of a termination measure. The latter is necessary once the

invariant proof rule for while is applied.
nipkow@9457

* HOL: tuned AST representation of nested pairs, avoiding bogus output
wenzelm@10003
   484

paulson@9542
   493
wenzelm@10003
   494
* ZF: new treatment of nat to minimize type-checking: all operators
wenzelm@10003
   495
coerce their operands to a natural number using the function natify,
wenzelm@10003
   496
making the algebraic laws unconditional;
paulson@9542

wenzelm@10003

   525
  [| inj ?f; ~ ?W ==> ?f ?x = ?f ?y; ?x = ?y ==> ?W |] ==> ?W
wenzelm@10003
   526
in HOL, FOL and ZF the function cla_make_elim will create such rules

* ML: renamed flags Syntax.trace_norm_ast to Syntax.trace_ast; global
wenzelm@8994
   554
timing flag supersedes proof_timing and Toplevel.trace;
wenzelm@8994
   555
wenzelm@10003
   556
* ML: new combinators |>> and |>>> for incremental transformations
wenzelm@10003
   557
with secondary results (e.g. certain theory extensions):
wenzelm@10003
   558
wenzelm@9330
   559
* ML: PureThy.add_defs gets additional argument to indicate potential
wenzelm@9330
   560
overloading (usually false);
wenzelm@9330
   561
wenzelm@10003
   562
* ML: PureThy.add_thms/add_axioms/add_defs now return theorems as
wenzelm@10003
   563
results;

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES (see below for more details) ***
paulson@5931
   571
paulson@6922
   572
* HOL: The THEN and ELSE parts of conditional expressions (if P then x else y)
paulson@6922
   573
are no longer simplified.  (This allows the simplifier to unfold recursive
paulson@6922
   574
functional programs.)  To restore the old behaviour, declare
wenzelm@7215
   575
wenzelm@7215
   576
    Delcongs [if_weak_cong];
paulson@6922
   577
wenzelm@6269
   578
* HOL: Removed the obsolete syntax "Compl A"; use -A for set
wenzelm@6269
   579
complement;
paulson@5931
   580
wenzelm@6269
   581
* HOL: the predicate "inj" is now defined by translation to "inj_on";
paulson@6174
   582
berghofe@7847
   583
* HOL/datatype: mutual_induct_tac no longer exists --
berghofe@7847
   584
  use induct_tac "x_1 ... x_n" instead of mutual_induct_tac ["x_1", ..., "x_n"]
berghofe@7847
   585
wenzelm@6386
   586
* HOL/typedef: fixed type inference for representing set; type
wenzelm@6386
   587
arguments now have to occur explicitly on the rhs as type constraints;
wenzelm@6386
   588
wenzelm@6269
   589
* ZF: The con_defs part of an inductive definition may no longer refer
wenzelm@6269
   590
to constants declared in the same theory;
nipkow@6057
   591
wenzelm@6269
   592
* HOL, ZF: the function mk_cases, generated by the inductive
wenzelm@6269
   593
definition package, has lost an argument.  To simplify its result, it
wenzelm@6269
   594
uses the default simpset instead of a supplied list of theorems.
paulson@6141
   595
wenzelm@7215
   596
* HOL/List: the constructors of type list are now Nil and Cons;
wenzelm@7215
   597
nipkow@7619
   598
* Simplifier: the type of the infix ML functions
wenzelm@8729
   599
        setSSolver addSSolver setSolver addSolver
nipkow@7619
   600
is now  simpset * solver -> simpset  where `solver' is a new abstract type
nipkow@7619
   601
for packaging solvers. A solver is created via
wenzelm@8729
   602
        mk_solver: string -> (thm list -> int -> tactic) -> solver
nipkow@7619
   603
where the string argument is only a comment.

*** Proof tools ***
paulson@6069
   607
wenzelm@6343
   608
* Provers/Arith/fast_lin_arith.ML contains a functor for creating a
wenzelm@6343
   609
decision procedure for linear arithmetic. Currently it is used for
wenzelm@7593
   610
types `nat', `int', and `real' in HOL (see below); it can, should and
wenzelm@7593
   611
will be instantiated for other types and logics as well.
paulson@6069
   612
nipkow@7324
   613
* The simplifier now accepts rewrite rules with flexible heads, eg
nipkow@7324
   614
     hom ?f ==> ?f(?x+?y) = ?f ?x + ?f ?y
nipkow@7324
   615
  They are applied like any rule with a non-pattern lhs, i.e. by first-order
nipkow@7324
   616
  matching.

*** General ***
paulson@6014
   620
wenzelm@7986
   621
* New Isabelle/Isar subsystem provides an alternative to traditional
wenzelm@7215
   622
tactical theorem proving; together with the ProofGeneral/isar user
wenzelm@7215
   623
interface it offers an interactive environment for developing human
wenzelm@7215
   624
readable proof documents (Isar == Intelligible semi-automated
wenzelm@7886
   625
reasoning); for further information see isatool doc isar-ref,
wenzelm@7986
   626
src/HOL/Isar_examples and http://isabelle.in.tum.de/Isar/
wenzelm@7886
   627
wenzelm@9612
   628
* improved and simplified presentation of theories: better HTML markup
wenzelm@9612
   629
(including colors), graph views in several sizes; isatool usedir now
wenzelm@9612
   630
provides a proper interface for user theories (via -P option); actual
wenzelm@9612
   631
document preparation based on (PDF)LaTeX is available as well (for
wenzelm@9612
   632
new-style theories only); see isatool doc system for more information;
wenzelm@7215
   633
wenzelm@7252
   634
* native support for Proof General, both for classic Isabelle and
wenzelm@7986
   635
Isabelle/Isar;
wenzelm@7215
   636
wenzelm@7791
   637
* ML function thm_deps visualizes dependencies of theorems and lemmas,
wenzelm@7791
   638
using the graph browser tool;
wenzelm@7791
   639
wenzelm@6751
   640
* Isabelle manuals now also available as PDF;
wenzelm@6751
   641
wenzelm@6449
   642
* theory loader rewritten from scratch (may not be fully
wenzelm@6449
   643
bug-compatible); old loadpath variable has been replaced by show_path,
wenzelm@6671
   644
add_path, del_path, reset_path functions; new operations such as
wenzelm@7593
   645
update_thy, touch_thy, remove_thy, use/update_thy_only (see also
wenzelm@7593
   646
isatool doc ref);
wenzelm@6449
   647
wenzelm@7215
   648
* improved isatool install: option -k creates KDE application icon,
wenzelm@7215
   649
option -p DIR installs standalone binaries;
wenzelm@7215
   650
wenzelm@7215
   651
* added ML_PLATFORM setting (useful for cross-platform installations);
wenzelm@7215
   652
more robust handling of platform specific ML images for SML/NJ;
wenzelm@7215
   653
wenzelm@7886
   654
* the settings environment is now statically scoped, i.e. it is never
wenzelm@7986
   655
created again in sub-processes invoked from isabelle, isatool, or
wenzelm@7886
   656
Isabelle;
wenzelm@7886
   657
wenzelm@7215
   658
* path element specification '~~' refers to '$ISABELLE_HOME';
wenzelm@7215
   659
wenzelm@6343
   660
* in locales, the "assumes" and "defines" parts may be omitted if
wenzelm@6343
   661
empty;
wenzelm@5973
   662
wenzelm@6269
   663
* new print_mode "xsymbols" for extended symbol support (e.g. genuine
wenzelm@6269
   664
long arrows);
wenzelm@6259
   665
wenzelm@6343
   666
* new print_mode "HTML";
wenzelm@6343
   667
wenzelm@6343
   668
* new flag show_tags controls display of tags of theorems (which are
wenzelm@6343
   669
basically just comments that may be attached by some tools);
wenzelm@6343
   670
wenzelm@6461
   671
* Isamode 2.6 requires patch to accomodate change of Isabelle font
wenzelm@6461
   672
mode and goal output format:
wenzelm@6461
   673
wenzelm@6461

wenzelm@6461
   684
wenzelm@7450
   685
* function bind_thms stores lists of theorems (cf. bind_thm);
wenzelm@7450
   686
wenzelm@7593
   687
* new shorthand tactics ftac, eatac, datac, fatac;
wenzelm@7593
   688
wenzelm@7593
   689
* qed (and friends) now accept "" as result name; in that case the
wenzelm@7986
   690
theorem is not stored, but proper checks and presentation of the
wenzelm@7986
   691
result still apply;
wenzelm@7593
   692
wenzelm@7805
   693
* theorem database now also indexes constants "Trueprop", "all",
wenzelm@7805
   694
"==>", "=="; thus thms_containing, findI etc. may retrieve more rules;

   699
** HOL arithmetic **
wenzelm@7215
   700
wenzelm@6343
   701
* There are now decision procedures for linear arithmetic over nat and
wenzelm@6343
   702
int:
nipkow@6131
   703
wenzelm@6343
   704
1. arith_tac copes with arbitrary formulae involving `=', `<', `<=',
wenzelm@6343
   705
`+', `-', `Suc', `min', `max' and numerical constants; other subterms
wenzelm@6343
   706
are treated as atomic; subformulae not involving type `nat' or `int'
wenzelm@6343
   707
are ignored; quantified subformulae are ignored unless they are
wenzelm@6343
   708
positive universal or negative existential. The tactic has to be
wenzelm@6343
   709
invoked by hand and can be a little bit slow. In particular, the
wenzelm@6343
   710
running time is exponential in the number of occurrences of `min' and
wenzelm@6343
   711
`max', and `-' on `nat'.
nipkow@6131
   712
wenzelm@6343
   713
2. fast_arith_tac is a cut-down version of arith_tac: it only takes
wenzelm@6343
   714
(negated) (in)equalities among the premises and the conclusion into
wenzelm@6343
   715
account (i.e. no compound formulae) and does not know about `min' and
wenzelm@6343
   716
`max', and `-' on `nat'. It is fast and is used automatically by the
wenzelm@6343
   717
simplifier.
nipkow@6131
   718
wenzelm@6343
   719
NB: At the moment, these decision procedures do not cope with mixed
wenzelm@6343
   720
nat/int formulae where the two parts interact, such as `m < n ==>
wenzelm@6343
   721
int(m) < int(n)'.
oheimb@6028
   722
wenzelm@7215
   723
* HOL/Numeral provides a generic theory of numerals (encoded
wenzelm@7313
   724
efficiently as bit strings); setup for types nat/int/real is in place;
wenzelm@7215
   725
INCOMPATIBILITY: since numeral syntax is now polymorphic, rather than
wenzelm@7215
   726
int, existing theories and proof scripts may require a few additional
wenzelm@7215
   727
type constraints;
wenzelm@7215
   728
wenzelm@7215
   729
* integer division and remainder can now be performed on constant
wenzelm@7215
   730
arguments;
paulson@7157
   731
wenzelm@7215
   732
* many properties of integer multiplication, division and remainder
wenzelm@7215
   733
are now available;
paulson@6922
   734
paulson@7287
   735
* An interface to the Stanford Validity Checker (SVC) is available through the
paulson@7287
   736
tactic svc_tac.  Propositional tautologies and theorems of linear arithmetic
paulson@7287
   737
are proved automatically.  SVC must be installed separately, and its results
paulson@7287
   738
must be TAKEN ON TRUST (Isabelle does not check the proofs, but tags any
paulson@7287
   739
invocation of the underlying oracle).  For SVC see
paulson@7444
   740
  http://verify.stanford.edu/SVC
paulson@6922
   741
wenzelm@7125

   748
(in Isabelle/Isar) -- by Gertrud Bauer;
wenzelm@7595
   749
wenzelm@7691
   750
* HOL/BCV: generic model of bytecode verification, i.e. data-flow
wenzelm@7691
   751
analysis for assembly languages with subtypes;
wenzelm@7691
   752
wenzelm@6278
   753
* HOL/TLA (Lamport's Temporal Logic of Actions): major reorganization
wenzelm@6278
   754
-- avoids syntactic ambiguities and treats state, transition, and
wenzelm@6278
   755
temporal levels more uniformly; introduces INCOMPATIBILITIES due to
wenzelm@6278
   756
changed syntax and (many) tactics;
wenzelm@6278
   757
wenzelm@7791
   758
* HOL/inductive: Now also handles more general introduction rules such
wenzelm@7791
   759
  as "ALL y. (y, x) : r --> y : acc r ==> x : acc r"; monotonicity
wenzelm@7791
   760
  theorems are now maintained within the theory (maintained via the
wenzelm@7791
   761
  "mono" attribute);
berghofe@7780
   762
wenzelm@7238
   763
* HOL/datatype: Now also handles arbitrarily branching datatypes
wenzelm@7238
   764
  (using function types) such as
wenzelm@7238
   765
wenzelm@7238
   766
  datatype 'a tree = Atom 'a | Branch "nat => 'a tree"
berghofe@7047

wenzelm@7326
   768
* HOL/record: record_simproc (part of the default simpset) takes care
wenzelm@7326
   769
of selectors applied to updated records; record_split_tac is no longer
wenzelm@7327
   770
part of the default claset; update_defs may now be removed from the
wenzelm@7327
   771
simpset in many cases; COMPATIBILITY: old behavior achieved by
wenzelm@7326
   772
wenzelm@7326
   773
  claset_ref () := claset() addSWrapper record_split_wrapper;

   774
  Delsimprocs [record_simproc]
wenzelm@7326
   775
wenzelm@6386
   776
* HOL/typedef: fixed type inference for representing set; type
wenzelm@6386
   777
arguments now have to occur explicitly on the rhs as type constraints;
wenzelm@6386
   778
paulson@7287
   779
* HOL/recdef (TFL): 'congs' syntax now expects comma separated list of theorem
paulson@7287
   780
names rather than an ML expression;
paulson@7287
   781
paulson@7287
   782
* HOL/defer_recdef (TFL): like recdef but the well-founded relation can be
paulson@7287
   783
supplied later.  Program schemes can be defined, such as
paulson@7287
   784
    "While B C s = (if B s then While B C (C s) else s)"
paulson@7287
   785
where the well-founded relation can be chosen after B and C have been given.
wenzelm@6563
   786
wenzelm@7215
   787
* HOL/List: the constructors of type list are now Nil and Cons;
wenzelm@7215
   788
INCOMPATIBILITY: while [] and infix # syntax is still there, of
wenzelm@7215
   789
course, ML tools referring to List.list.op # etc. have to be adapted;
wenzelm@7215
   790
wenzelm@7238
   791
* HOL_quantifiers flag superseded by "HOL" print mode, which is
wenzelm@7238
   792
disabled by default; run isabelle with option -m HOL to get back to
wenzelm@7238
   793
the original Gordon/HOL-style output;
wenzelm@7238
   794
wenzelm@7238
   795
* HOL/Ord.thy: new bounded quantifier syntax (input only): ALL x<y. P,
wenzelm@7238
   796
ALL x<=y. P, EX x<y. P, EX x<=y. P;
wenzelm@7238
   797
wenzelm@7238
   798
* HOL basic syntax simplified (more orthogonal): all variants of
wenzelm@7238
   799
All/Ex now support plain / symbolic / HOL notation; plain syntax for
wenzelm@7238
   800
Eps operator is provided as well: "SOME x. P[x]";
wenzelm@7238
   801
berghofe@7320
   802
* HOL/Sum.thy: sum_case has been moved to HOL/Datatype;
wenzelm@7261
   803
wenzelm@7280
   804
* HOL/Univ.thy: infix syntax <*>, <+>, <**>, <+> eliminated and made
wenzelm@7280
   805
thus available for user theories;
wenzelm@7280
   806
wenzelm@7300
   807
* HOLCF/IOA/Sequents: renamed 'Cons' to 'Consq' to avoid clash with
wenzelm@7300
   808
HOL/List; hardly an INCOMPATIBILITY since '>>' syntax is used all the
wenzelm@7300
   809
time;
wenzelm@7300
   810
wenzelm@7986
   811

* automatic type-inference, with AddTCs command to insert new
wenzelm@6269
   841
type-checking rules;
paulson@6155
   842
wenzelm@6269
   843
* datatype introduction rules are now added as Safe Introduction rules
wenzelm@6269
   844
to the claset;
paulson@6155
   845
wenzelm@6269
   846
* the syntax "if P then x else y" is now available in addition to
wenzelm@6269
   847
if(P,x,y);
wenzelm@6269

wenzelm@6343
   850
*** Internal programming interfaces ***
wenzelm@6343
   851
wenzelm@7919
   852
* tuned simplifier trace output; new flag debug_simp;
wenzelm@7919
   853
wenzelm@7420
   854
* structures Vartab / Termtab (instances of TableFun) offer efficient
wenzelm@7420
   855
tables indexed by indexname_ord / term_ord (compatible with aconv);
wenzelm@7420
   856
wenzelm@6386
   857
* AxClass.axclass_tac lost the theory argument;
wenzelm@6386
   858
wenzelm@6343
   859
* tuned current_goals_markers semantics: begin / end goal avoids
wenzelm@6343
   860
printing empty lines;
wenzelm@6343
   861
wenzelm@6343
   862
* removed prs and prs_fn hook, which was broken because it did not
wenzelm@6343
   863
include \n in its semantics, forcing writeln to add one
wenzelm@6343
   864
uncoditionally; replaced prs_fn by writeln_fn; consider std_output:
wenzelm@6343
   865
string -> unit if you really want to output text without newline;
wenzelm@6343
   866
wenzelm@6343
   867
* Symbol.output subject to print mode; INCOMPATIBILITY: defaults to
wenzelm@6343
   868
plain output, interface builders may have to enable 'isabelle_font'
wenzelm@6343
   869
mode to get Isabelle font glyphs as before;
wenzelm@6343
   870
wenzelm@6343
   871
* refined token_translation interface; INCOMPATIBILITY: output length
wenzelm@6343
   872
now of type real instead of int;
wenzelm@6343
   873
wenzelm@7196
   874
* theory loader actions may be traced via new ThyInfo.add_hook
wenzelm@7196
   875
interface (see src/Pure/Thy/thy_info.ML); example application: keep
wenzelm@7196
   876
your own database of information attached to *whole* theories -- as
wenzelm@7196
   877
opposed to intra-theory data slots offered via TheoryDataFun;
wenzelm@7196
   878
wenzelm@7647
   879
* proper handling of dangling sort hypotheses (at last!);
wenzelm@7647
   880
Thm.strip_shyps and Drule.strip_shyps_warning take care of removing
wenzelm@7647
   881
extra sort hypotheses that can be witnessed from the type signature;
wenzelm@7986
   882
the force_strip_shyps flag is gone, any remaining shyps are simply
wenzelm@7986
   883
left in the theorem (with a warning issued by strip_shyps_warning);

   890
*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES (see below for more details) ***
wenzelm@4842
   891
wenzelm@5726
   892
* several changes of automated proof tools;
wenzelm@5373
   893
wenzelm@5726
   894
* HOL: major changes to the inductive and datatype packages, including
wenzelm@5726
   895
some minor incompatibilities of theory syntax;
berghofe@5214
   896
wenzelm@5726
   897
* HOL: renamed r^-1 to 'converse' from 'inverse'; 'inj_onto' is now
wenzelm@5217
   898
called `inj_on';
paulson@5160
   899
nipkow@5275
   900
* HOL: removed duplicate thms in Arith:
nipkow@5275
   901
  less_imp_add_less  should be replaced by  trans_less_add1
nipkow@5275
   902
  le_imp_add_le      should be replaced by  trans_le_add1
paulson@5160
   903
wenzelm@5726
   904
* HOL: unary minus is now overloaded (new type constraints may be
wenzelm@5726
   905
required);
paulson@5490
   906
wenzelm@5726
   907
* HOL and ZF: unary minus for integers is now #- instead of #~.  In
wenzelm@5726
   908
ZF, expressions such as n#-1 must be changed to n#- 1, since #-1 is
wenzelm@5726
   909
now taken as an integer constant.
paulson@5541
   910
wenzelm@5726
   911
* Pure: ML function 'theory_of' renamed to 'theory';
wenzelm@5397
   912
wenzelm@5363
   913
wenzelm@5127
   914
*** Proof tools ***
nipkow@4880
   915
nipkow@5657
   916
* Simplifier:
nipkow@5657
   917
  1. Asm_full_simp_tac is now more aggressive.
nipkow@5657
   918
     1. It will sometimes reorient premises if that increases their power to
nipkow@5657
   919
        simplify.
nipkow@5657
   920
     2. It does no longer proceed strictly from left to right but may also
nipkow@5657
   921
        rotate premises to achieve further simplification.
nipkow@5657
   922
     For compatibility reasons there is now Asm_lr_simp_tac which is like the
nipkow@5657
   923
     old Asm_full_simp_tac in that it does not rotate premises.
nipkow@5657
   924
  2. The simplifier now knows a little bit about nat-arithmetic.
nipkow@4880
   925
wenzelm@5127
   926
* Classical reasoner: wrapper mechanism for the classical reasoner now
wenzelm@5127
   927
allows for selected deletion of wrappers, by introduction of names for
wenzelm@5127
   928
wrapper functionals.  This implies that addbefore, addSbefore,
wenzelm@5127
   929
addaltern, and addSaltern now take a pair (name, tactic) as argument,
wenzelm@5127
   930
and that adding two tactics with the same name overwrites the first
wenzelm@5127
   931
one (emitting a warning).
oheimb@4824
   932
  type wrapper = (int -> tactic) -> (int -> tactic)
oheimb@4649
   933
  setWrapper, setSWrapper, compWrapper and compSWrapper are replaced by
oheimb@4824
   934
  addWrapper, addSWrapper: claset * (string * wrapper) -> claset
oheimb@4824
   935
  delWrapper, delSWrapper: claset *  string            -> claset
oheimb@4649
   936
  getWrapper is renamed to appWrappers, getSWrapper to appSWrappers;
oheimb@4649
   937
wenzelm@5705
   938
* Classical reasoner: addbefore/addSbefore now have APPEND/ORELSE
wenzelm@5726
   939
semantics; addbefore now affects only the unsafe part of step_tac
wenzelm@5726
   940
etc.; this affects addss/auto_tac/force_tac, so EXISTING PROOFS MAY
wenzelm@5726
   941
FAIL, but proofs should be fixable easily, e.g. by replacing Auto_tac
wenzelm@5726
   942
by Force_tac;
oheimb@5524
   943
wenzelm@5726
   944
* Classical reasoner: setwrapper to setWrapper and compwrapper to
wenzelm@5726
   945
compWrapper; added safe wrapper (and access functions for it);
oheimb@5524
   946
wenzelm@5127
   947
* HOL/split_all_tac is now much faster and fails if there is nothing
wenzelm@5726
   948
to split.  Some EXISTING PROOFS MAY REQUIRE ADAPTION because the order
wenzelm@5726
   949
and the names of the automatically generated variables have changed.
wenzelm@5726
   950
split_all_tac has moved within claset() from unsafe wrappers to safe
wenzelm@5726
   951
wrappers, which means that !!-bound variables are split much more
wenzelm@5726
   952
aggressively, and safe_tac and clarify_tac now split such variables.
wenzelm@5726
   953
If this splitting is not appropriate, use delSWrapper "split_all_tac".
wenzelm@5726
   954
Note: the same holds for record_split_tac, which does the job of
wenzelm@5726
   955
split_all_tac for record fields.
wenzelm@5127
   956
wenzelm@5726
   957
* HOL/Simplifier: Rewrite rules for case distinctions can now be added
wenzelm@5726
   958
permanently to the default simpset using Addsplits just like
wenzelm@5726
   959
Addsimps. They can be removed via Delsplits just like
wenzelm@5726
   960
Delsimps. Lower-case versions are also available.
wenzelm@5127
   961
wenzelm@5726
   962
* HOL/Simplifier: The rule split_if is now part of the default
wenzelm@5726
   963
simpset. This means that the simplifier will eliminate all occurrences
wenzelm@5726
   964
of if-then-else in the conclusion of a goal. To prevent this, you can
wenzelm@5726
   965
either remove split_if completely from the default simpset by
wenzelm@5726
   966
`Delsplits [split_if]' or remove it in a specific call of the
wenzelm@5726
   967
simplifier using `... delsplits [split_if]'.  You can also add/delete
wenzelm@5726
   968
other case splitting rules to/from the default simpset: every datatype
wenzelm@5726
   969
generates suitable rules `split_t_case' and `split_t_case_asm' (where
wenzelm@5726
   970
t is the name of the datatype).
wenzelm@5127
   971
wenzelm@5726
   972
* Classical reasoner / Simplifier combination: new force_tac (and
wenzelm@5127
   973
derivatives Force_tac, force) combines rewriting and classical
wenzelm@5127
   974
reasoning (and whatever other tools) similarly to auto_tac, but is
wenzelm@5726
   975
aimed to solve the given subgoal completely.
wenzelm@5127
   976
wenzelm@5127
   977
wenzelm@5127
   978
*** General ***
wenzelm@5127
   979
wenzelm@5217
   980
* new top-level commands `Goal' and `Goalw' that improve upon `goal'
wenzelm@5127
   981
and `goalw': the theory is no longer needed as an explicit argument -
wenzelm@5127
   982
the current theory context is used; assumptions are no longer returned
wenzelm@5127
   983
at the ML-level unless one of them starts with ==> or !!; it is
wenzelm@5217
   984
recommended to convert to these new commands using isatool fixgoal
wenzelm@5217
   985
(backup your sources first!);
wenzelm@4842
   986
wenzelm@5217
   987
* new top-level commands 'thm' and 'thms' for retrieving theorems from
wenzelm@5207
   988
the current theory context, and 'theory' to lookup stored theories;
paulson@4806
   989
paulson@5722
   990
* new theory section 'locale' for declaring constants, assumptions and
paulson@5722
   991
definitions that have local scope;
paulson@5722
   992
wenzelm@5127
   993
* new theory section 'nonterminals' for purely syntactic types;
wenzelm@4858
   994
wenzelm@5127
   995
* new theory section 'setup' for generic ML setup functions
wenzelm@5127
   996
(e.g. package initialization);
wenzelm@4869
   997
wenzelm@5131
   998
* the distribution now includes Isabelle icons: see
wenzelm@5131
   999
lib/logo/isabelle-{small,tiny}.xpm;
wenzelm@5131
  1000
wenzelm@5363
  1001
* isatool install - install binaries with absolute references to
wenzelm@5363
  1002
ISABELLE_HOME/bin;
wenzelm@5363
  1003
wenzelm@5572
  1004
* isatool logo -- create instances of the Isabelle logo (as EPS);
wenzelm@5572
  1005
wenzelm@5407
  1006
* print mode 'emacs' reserved for Isamode;
wenzelm@5407
  1007
wenzelm@5726
  1008
* support multiple print (ast) translations per constant name;
wenzelm@5726
  1009
wenzelm@6925
  1010
* theorems involving oracles are now printed with a suffixed [!];
wenzelm@6925
  1011
wenzelm@4711
  1012
paulson@4661
  1013
*** HOL ***
paulson@4661
  1014
wenzelm@5710
  1015
* there is now a tutorial on Isabelle/HOL (do 'isatool doc tutorial');
nipkow@5709
  1016
wenzelm@5217
  1017
* HOL/inductive package reorganized and improved: now supports mutual
paulson@5267
  1018
definitions such as
wenzelm@5217
  1019
wenzelm@5217
  1020
  inductive EVEN ODD
wenzelm@5217
  1021
    intrs
wenzelm@5217
  1022
      null "0 : EVEN"
wenzelm@5217
  1023
      oddI "n : EVEN ==> Suc n : ODD"
wenzelm@5217
  1024
      evenI "n : ODD ==> Suc n : EVEN"
wenzelm@5217
  1025
wenzelm@5217
  1026
new theorem list "elims" contains an elimination rule for each of the
wenzelm@5217
  1027
recursive sets; inductive definitions now handle disjunctive premises
wenzelm@5217
  1028
correctly (also ZF);
berghofe@5214
  1029
wenzelm@5217
  1030
INCOMPATIBILITIES: requires Inductive as an ancestor; component
wenzelm@5217
  1031
"mutual_induct" no longer exists - the induction rule is always
wenzelm@5217
  1032
contained in "induct";
wenzelm@5217
  1033
wenzelm@5217
  1034
wenzelm@5217
  1035
* HOL/datatype package re-implemented and greatly improved: now
paulson@5267
  1036
supports mutually recursive datatypes such as
wenzelm@5217
  1037
wenzelm@5217
  1038
  datatype
wenzelm@5217
  1039
    'a aexp = IF_THEN_ELSE ('a bexp) ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
  1040
            | SUM ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
  1041
            | DIFF ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
  1042
            | NUM 'a
wenzelm@5217
  1043
  and
wenzelm@5217
  1044
    'a bexp = LESS ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
  1045
            | AND ('a bexp) ('a bexp)
wenzelm@5217
  1046
            | OR ('a bexp) ('a bexp)
wenzelm@5217
  1047
paulson@5267
  1048
as well as indirectly recursive datatypes such as
berghofe@5214
  1049
wenzelm@5217
  1050
  datatype
wenzelm@5217
  1051
    ('a, 'b) term = Var 'a
wenzelm@5217
  1052
                  | App 'b ((('a, 'b) term) list)
berghofe@5214
  1053
wenzelm@5217
  1054
The new tactic  mutual_induct_tac [<var_1>, ..., <var_n>] i  performs
wenzelm@5217
  1055
induction on mutually / indirectly recursive datatypes.
wenzelm@5217
  1056
wenzelm@5217
  1057
Primrec equations are now stored in theory and can be accessed via
wenzelm@5217
  1058
<function_name>.simps.
wenzelm@5217
  1059
wenzelm@5217
  1060
INCOMPATIBILITIES:
berghofe@5214
  1061
wenzelm@5217
  1062
  - Theories using datatypes must now have theory Datatype as an
wenzelm@5217
  1063
    ancestor.
wenzelm@5217
  1064
  - The specific <typename>.induct_tac no longer exists - use the
wenzelm@5217
  1065
    generic induct_tac instead.
berghofe@5226
  1066
  - natE has been renamed to nat.exhaust - use exhaust_tac
wenzelm@5217
  1067
    instead of res_inst_tac ... natE. Note that the variable
berghofe@5226
  1068
    names in nat.exhaust differ from the names in natE, this
wenzelm@5217
  1069
    may cause some "fragile" proofs to fail.
wenzelm@5217
  1070
  - The theorems split_<typename>_case and split_<typename>_case_asm
wenzelm@5217
  1071
    have been renamed to <typename>.split and <typename>.split_asm.
wenzelm@5217
  1072
  - Since default sorts of type variables are now handled correctly,
wenzelm@5217
  1073
    some datatype definitions may have to be annotated with explicit
wenzelm@5217
  1074
    sort constraints.
wenzelm@5217
  1075
  - Primrec definitions no longer require function name and type
wenzelm@5217
  1076
    of recursive argument.
berghofe@5214
  1077
wenzelm@5217
  1078
Consider using isatool fixdatatype to adapt your theories and proof
wenzelm@5217
  1079
scripts to the new package (backup your sources first!).
wenzelm@5217
  1080
wenzelm@5217
  1081
wenzelm@5726
  1082
* HOL/record package: considerably improved implementation; now
wenzelm@5726
  1083
includes concrete syntax for record types, terms, updates; theorems
wenzelm@5726
  1084
for surjective pairing and splitting !!-bound record variables; proof
wenzelm@5726
  1085
support is as follows:
wenzelm@5726
  1086
wenzelm@5726
  1087
  1) standard conversions (selectors or updates applied to record
wenzelm@5726
  1088
constructor terms) are part of the standard simpset;
wenzelm@5726
  1089
wenzelm@5726
  1090
  2) inject equations of the form ((x, y) = (x', y')) == x=x' & y=y' are
wenzelm@5726
  1091
made part of standard simpset and claset via addIffs;
wenzelm@5726
  1092
wenzelm@5726
  1093
  3) a tactic for record field splitting (record_split_tac) is part of
wenzelm@5726
  1094
the standard claset (addSWrapper);
wenzelm@5726
  1095
wenzelm@5726
  1096
To get a better idea about these rules you may retrieve them via
wenzelm@5726
  1097
something like 'thms "foo.simps"' or 'thms "foo.iffs"', where "foo" is
wenzelm@5726
  1098
the name of your record type.
wenzelm@5726
  1099
wenzelm@5726
  1100
The split tactic 3) conceptually simplifies by the following rule:
wenzelm@5726
  1101
wenzelm@5726
  1102
  "(!!x. PROP ?P x) == (!!a b. PROP ?P (a, b))"
wenzelm@5726
  1103
wenzelm@5726
  1104
Thus any record variable that is bound by meta-all will automatically
wenzelm@5726
  1105
blow up into some record constructor term, consequently the
wenzelm@5726
  1106
simplifications of 1), 2) apply.  Thus force_tac, auto_tac etc. shall
wenzelm@5726
  1107
solve record problems automatically.
wenzelm@5726
  1108
berghofe@5214
  1109
wenzelm@5125
  1110
* reorganized the main HOL image: HOL/Integ and String loaded by
wenzelm@5125
  1111
default; theory Main includes everything;
wenzelm@5125
  1112
paulson@5650
  1113
* automatic simplification of integer sums and comparisons, using cancellation;
paulson@5650
  1114
oheimb@5526
  1115
* added option_map_eq_Some and not_Some_eq to the default simpset and claset;
wenzelm@5127
  1116
wenzelm@5127
  1117
* added disj_not1 = "(~P | Q) = (P --> Q)" to the default simpset;
wenzelm@5127
  1118
wenzelm@5127
  1119
* many new identities for unions, intersections, set difference, etc.;
wenzelm@5127
  1120
wenzelm@5127
  1121
* expand_if, expand_split, expand_sum_case and expand_nat_case are now
wenzelm@5127
  1122
called split_if, split_split, split_sum_case and split_nat_case (to go
wenzelm@5127
  1123
with add/delsplits);
wenzelm@5125
  1124
wenzelm@5127
  1125
* HOL/Prod introduces simplification procedure unit_eq_proc rewriting
wenzelm@5127
  1126
(?x::unit) = (); this is made part of the default simpset, which COULD
wenzelm@5127
  1127
MAKE EXISTING PROOFS FAIL under rare circumstances (consider
wenzelm@5207
  1128
'Delsimprocs [unit_eq_proc];' as last resort); also note that
wenzelm@5207
  1129
unit_abs_eta_conv is added in order to counter the effect of
wenzelm@5207
  1130
unit_eq_proc on (%u::unit. f u), replacing it by f rather than by
wenzelm@5207
  1131
%u.f();
wenzelm@5125
  1132
wenzelm@5217
  1133
* HOL/Fun INCOMPATIBILITY: `inj_onto' is now called `inj_on' (which
wenzelm@5217
  1134
makes more sense);
berghofe@5109
  1135
paulson@5475
  1136
* HOL/Set INCOMPATIBILITY: rule `equals0D' is now a well-formed destruct rule;
paulson@5475
  1137
  It and 'sym RS equals0D' are now in the default  claset, giving automatic
paulson@5475
  1138
  disjointness reasoning but breaking a few old proofs.
paulson@5267
  1139
wenzelm@5217
  1140
* HOL/Relation INCOMPATIBILITY: renamed the relational operator r^-1
wenzelm@5217
  1141
to 'converse' from 'inverse' (for compatibility with ZF and some
wenzelm@5217
  1142
literature);
wenzelm@5085
  1143
wenzelm@5127
  1144
* HOL/recdef can now declare non-recursive functions, with {} supplied as
wenzelm@5127
  1145
the well-founded relation;
oheimb@4838
  1146
paulson@5490
  1147
* HOL/Set INCOMPATIBILITY: the complement of set A is now written -A instead of
paulson@5490
  1148
    Compl A.  The "Compl" syntax remains available as input syntax for this
paulson@5490
  1149
    release ONLY.
paulson@5490
  1150
wenzelm@5127
  1151
* HOL/Update: new theory of function updates:
wenzelm@5127
  1152
    f(a:=b) == %x. if x=a then b else f x
wenzelm@5127
  1153
may also be iterated as in f(a:=b,c:=d,...);
nipkow@5077
  1154
wenzelm@5127
  1155
* HOL/Vimage: new theory for inverse image of a function, syntax f-``B;
paulson@4899
  1156
nipkow@5282
  1157
* HOL/List:
nipkow@5282
  1158
  - new function list_update written xs[i:=v] that updates the i-th
nipkow@5282
  1159
    list position. May also be iterated as in xs[i:=a,j:=b,...].
nipkow@5428
  1160
  - new function `upt' written [i..j(] which generates the list
nipkow@5428
  1161
    [i,i+1,...,j-1], i.e. the upper bound is excluded. To include the upper
nipkow@5428
  1162
    bound write [i..j], which is a shorthand for [i..j+1(].
nipkow@5282
  1163
  - new lexicographic orderings and corresponding wellfoundedness theorems.
paulson@4779
  1164
wenzelm@5127
  1165
* HOL/Arith:
wenzelm@5127
  1166
  - removed 'pred' (predecessor) function;
wenzelm@5127
  1167
  - generalized some theorems about n-1;
wenzelm@5127
  1168
  - many new laws about "div" and "mod";
wenzelm@5127
  1169
  - new laws about greatest common divisors (see theory ex/Primes);
oheimb@4766
  1170
wenzelm@5127
  1171
* HOL/Relation: renamed the relational operator r^-1 "converse"
wenzelm@4842
  1172
instead of "inverse";
wenzelm@4711
  1173
nipkow@5651
  1174
* HOL/Induct/Multiset: a theory of multisets, including the wellfoundedness
nipkow@5651
  1175
  of the multiset ordering;
nipkow@5651
  1176
wenzelm@5127
  1177
* directory HOL/Real: a construction of the reals using Dedekind cuts
nipkow@5651
  1178
  (not included by default);
nipkow@4835
  1179
wenzelm@5127
  1180
* directory HOL/UNITY: Chandy and Misra's UNITY formalism;
wenzelm@4711
  1181
nipkow@5651
  1182
* directory HOL/Hoare: a new version of Hoare logic which permits many-sorted
nipkow@5651
  1183
  programs, i.e. different program variables may have different types.
nipkow@5651
  1184
paulson@5142
  1185
* calling (stac rew i) now fails if "rew" has no effect on the goal
paulson@5142
  1186
  [previously, this check worked only if the rewrite rule was unconditional]
paulson@5308
  1187
  Now rew can involve either definitions or equalities (either == or =).
wenzelm@5002

paulson@4879
  1190
*** ZF ***
paulson@4879
  1191
paulson@5332
  1192
* theory Main includes everything; INCOMPATIBILITY: theory ZF.thy contains
paulson@5332
  1193
  only the theorems proved on ZF.ML;
paulson@5160
  1194
paulson@5475
  1195
* ZF INCOMPATIBILITY: rule `equals0D' is now a well-formed destruct rule;
paulson@5475
  1196
  It and 'sym RS equals0D' are now in the default  claset, giving automatic
paulson@5475
  1197
  disjointness reasoning but breaking a few old proofs.
paulson@5267
  1198
paulson@5160
  1199
* ZF/Update: new theory of function updates
paulson@5160
  1200
    with default rewrite rule  f(x:=y) ` z = if(z=x, y, f`z)
paulson@5160
  1201
  may also be iterated as in f(a:=b,c:=d,...);
paulson@5160
  1202
paulson@4879
  1203
* in  let x=t in u(x), neither t nor u(x) has to be an FOL term.
oheimb@4649
  1204
paulson@5142
  1205
* calling (stac rew i) now fails if "rew" has no effect on the goal
paulson@5142
  1206
  [previously, this check worked only if the rewrite rule was unconditional]
paulson@5308
  1207
  Now rew can involve either definitions or equalities (either == or =).
paulson@5142
  1208
paulson@5160
  1209
* case_tac provided for compatibility with HOL
paulson@5160
  1210
    (like the old excluded_middle_tac, but with subgoals swapped)

*** Internal programming interfaces ***
wenzelm@5002
  1214
wenzelm@5251
  1215
* Pure: several new basic modules made available for general use, see
wenzelm@5251
  1216
also src/Pure/README;
wenzelm@5207
  1217
wenzelm@5008
  1218
* improved the theory data mechanism to support encapsulation (data
wenzelm@5008
  1219
kind name replaced by private Object.kind, acting as authorization
wenzelm@5373
  1220
key); new type-safe user interface via functor TheoryDataFun; generic
wenzelm@5373
  1221
print_data function becomes basically useless;
wenzelm@5002
  1222
wenzelm@5251
  1223
* removed global_names compatibility flag -- all theory declarations
wenzelm@5251
  1224
are qualified by default;
wenzelm@5251
  1225
wenzelm@5085
  1226
* module Pure/Syntax now offers quote / antiquote translation
wenzelm@5085
  1227
functions (useful for Hoare logic etc. with implicit dependencies);
wenzelm@5373
  1228
see HOL/ex/Antiquote for an example use;
wenzelm@5085
  1229
wenzelm@5127
  1230
* Simplifier now offers conversions (asm_)(full_)rewrite: simpset ->
wenzelm@5127
  1231
cterm -> thm;
wenzelm@5127
  1232
wenzelm@5207
  1233
* new tactical CHANGED_GOAL for checking that a tactic modifies a
wenzelm@5207
  1234
subgoal;
paulson@5142
  1235
wenzelm@5251
  1236
* Display.print_goals function moved to Locale.print_goals;
wenzelm@5251
  1237
wenzelm@5731
  1238
* standard print function for goals supports current_goals_markers
wenzelm@5731
  1239
variable for marking begin of proof, end of proof, start of goal; the
wenzelm@5731
  1240
default is ("", "", ""); setting current_goals_markers := ("<proof>",
wenzelm@5731
  1241
"</proof>", "<goal>") causes SGML like tagged proof state printing,
wenzelm@5731
  1242
for example;

  1249
*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES (see below for more details) ***
wenzelm@4410
  1250
wenzelm@4410
  1251
* changed lexical syntax of terms / types: dots made part of long
wenzelm@4410
  1252
identifiers, e.g. "%x.x" no longer possible, should be "%x. x";
wenzelm@4410
  1253
wenzelm@4410
  1254
* simpset (and claset) reference variable replaced by functions
wenzelm@4410
  1255
simpset / simpset_ref;
wenzelm@4410
  1256
wenzelm@4410
  1257
* no longer supports theory aliases (via merge) and non-trivial
wenzelm@4410
  1258
implicit merge of thms' signatures;
wenzelm@4410
  1259
wenzelm@4410
  1260
* most internal names of constants changed due to qualified names;
wenzelm@4410
  1261
wenzelm@4410
  1262
* changed Pure/Sequence interface (see Pure/seq.ML);
wenzelm@4410
  1263
wenzelm@3454
  1264
paulson@3715
  1265
*** General Changes ***
paulson@3715
  1266
wenzelm@4174
  1267
* hierachically structured name spaces (for consts, types, axms, thms
wenzelm@3943
  1268
etc.); new lexical class 'longid' (e.g. Foo.bar.x) may render much of
wenzelm@4108
  1269
old input syntactically incorrect (e.g. "%x.x"); COMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@4108
  1270
isatool fixdots ensures space after dots (e.g. "%x. x"); set
wenzelm@4174
  1271
long_names for fully qualified output names; NOTE: ML programs
wenzelm@4174
  1272
(special tactics, packages etc.) referring to internal names may have
wenzelm@4174
  1273
to be adapted to cope with fully qualified names; in case of severe
wenzelm@4174
  1274
backward campatibility problems try setting 'global_names' at compile
wenzelm@4174
  1275
time to have enrything declared within a flat name space; one may also
wenzelm@4174
  1276
fine tune name declarations in theories via the 'global' and 'local'
wenzelm@4174
  1277
section;
wenzelm@4108
  1278
wenzelm@4108
  1279
* reimplemented the implicit simpset and claset using the new anytype
wenzelm@4108
  1280
data filed in signatures; references simpset:simpset ref etc. are
wenzelm@4108
  1281
replaced by functions simpset:unit->simpset and
wenzelm@4108
  1282
simpset_ref:unit->simpset ref; COMPATIBILITY: use isatool fixclasimp
wenzelm@4108
  1283
to patch your ML files accordingly;
paulson@3856
  1284
wenzelm@3857
  1285
* HTML output now includes theory graph data for display with Java
wenzelm@3857
  1286
applet or isatool browser; data generated automatically via isatool
wenzelm@3901
  1287
usedir (see -i option, ISABELLE_USEDIR_OPTIONS);
wenzelm@3857
  1288
paulson@3856
  1289
* defs may now be conditional; improved rewrite_goals_tac to handle
paulson@3856
  1290
conditional equations;
paulson@3856
  1291
wenzelm@4174
  1292
* defs now admits additional type arguments, using TYPE('a) syntax;
wenzelm@4174
  1293
wenzelm@3901
  1294
* theory aliases via merge (e.g. M=A+B+C) no longer supported, always
wenzelm@3901
  1295
creates a new theory node; implicit merge of thms' signatures is
wenzelm@4112
  1296
restricted to 'trivial' ones; COMPATIBILITY: one may have to use
wenzelm@3901
  1297
transfer:theory->thm->thm in (rare) cases;
wenzelm@3901
  1298
wenzelm@3968
  1299
* improved handling of draft signatures / theories; draft thms (and
wenzelm@3968
  1300
ctyps, cterms) are automatically promoted to real ones;
wenzelm@3968
  1301
wenzelm@3901
  1302
* slightly changed interfaces for oracles: admit many per theory, named
wenzelm@3901
  1303
(e.g. oracle foo = mlfun), additional name argument for invoke_oracle;
wenzelm@3901
  1304
wenzelm@3901
  1305
* print_goals: optional output of const types (set show_consts and
wenzelm@3901
  1306
show_types);
wenzelm@3851
  1307
wenzelm@4388
  1308
* improved output of warnings (###) and errors (***);
wenzelm@3697
  1309
paulson@4178
  1310
* subgoal_tac displays a warning if the new subgoal has type variables;
paulson@4178
  1311
paulson@3715
  1312
* removed old README and Makefiles;
wenzelm@3697
  1313
paulson@3856
  1314
* replaced print_goals_ref hook by print_current_goals_fn and result_error_fn;
wenzelm@3670
  1315
paulson@3715
  1316
* removed obsolete init_pps and init_database;
paulson@3715
  1317
paulson@3715
  1318
* deleted the obsolete tactical STATE, which was declared by
paulson@3715
  1319
    fun STATE tacfun st = tacfun st st;
paulson@3715
  1320
wenzelm@4388
  1321
* cd and use now support path variables, e.g. $ISABELLE_HOME, or ~
wenzelm@4388
  1322
(which abbreviates $HOME);
wenzelm@4269
  1323
wenzelm@4269
  1324
* changed Pure/Sequence interface (see Pure/seq.ML); COMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@4269
  1325
use isatool fixseq to adapt your ML programs (this works for fully
wenzelm@4269
  1326
qualified references to the Sequence structure only!);
wenzelm@4269
  1327
wenzelm@4381
  1328
* use_thy no longer requires writable current directory; it always
wenzelm@4381
  1329
reloads .ML *and* .thy file, if either one is out of date;
wenzelm@4269
  1330
paulson@3715
  1331
paulson@3715
  1332
*** Classical Reasoner ***
paulson@3715
  1333
wenzelm@3744
  1334
* Clarify_tac, clarify_tac, clarify_step_tac, Clarify_step_tac: new
wenzelm@3744
  1335
tactics that use classical reasoning to simplify a subgoal without
wenzelm@3744
  1336
splitting it into several subgoals;
paulson@3715
  1337
paulson@3719
  1338
* Safe_tac: like safe_tac but uses the default claset;
paulson@3719
  1339
paulson@3715
  1340
paulson@3715
  1341
*** Simplifier ***
paulson@3715
  1342
paulson@3715
  1343
* added simplification meta rules:
paulson@3715
  1344
    (asm_)(full_)simplify: simpset -> thm -> thm;
paulson@3715
  1345
paulson@3715
  1346
* simplifier.ML no longer part of Pure -- has to be loaded by object
paulson@3715
  1347
logics (again);
paulson@3715
  1348
paulson@3715
  1349
* added prems argument to simplification procedures;
paulson@3715
  1350
paulson@4325
  1351
* HOL, FOL, ZF: added infix function `addsplits':
paulson@4325
  1352
  instead of `<simpset> setloop (split_tac <thms>)'
paulson@4325
  1353
  you can simply write `<simpset> addsplits <thms>'
paulson@4325
  1354
paulson@3715
  1355
paulson@3715
  1356
*** Syntax ***
paulson@3715
  1357
wenzelm@4174
  1358
* TYPE('a) syntax for type reflection terms;
wenzelm@4174
  1359
wenzelm@3985
  1360
* no longer handles consts with name "" -- declare as 'syntax' instead;
paulson@3856
  1361
paulson@3856
  1362
* pretty printer: changed order of mixfix annotation preference (again!);
wenzelm@3846
  1363
paulson@3715
  1364
* Pure: fixed idt/idts vs. pttrn/pttrns syntactic categories;
paulson@3715
  1365
paulson@3715
  1366
paulson@3715
  1367
*** HOL ***
paulson@3715
  1368
wenzelm@5726
  1369
* HOL: there is a new splitter `split_asm_tac' that can be used e.g.
oheimb@4189
  1370
  with `addloop' of the simplifier to faciliate case splitting in premises.
oheimb@4189
  1371
nipkow@4035
  1372
* HOL/TLA: Stephan Merz's formalization of Lamport's Temporal Logic of Actions;
wenzelm@3985
  1373
wenzelm@3985
  1374
* HOL/Auth: new protocol proofs including some for the Internet
nipkow@4035
  1375
  protocol TLS;
wenzelm@3985
  1376
wenzelm@4125
  1377
* HOL/Map: new theory of `maps' a la VDM;
nipkow@3982
  1378
wenzelm@4335
  1379
* HOL/simplifier: simplification procedures nat_cancel_sums for
wenzelm@4335
  1380
cancelling out common nat summands from =, <, <= (in)equalities, or
wenzelm@4335
  1381
differences; simplification procedures nat_cancel_factor for
wenzelm@4335
  1382
cancelling common factor from =, <, <= (in)equalities over natural
wenzelm@4373
  1383
sums; nat_cancel contains both kinds of procedures, it is installed by
wenzelm@4373
  1384
default in Arith.thy -- this COULD MAKE EXISTING PROOFS FAIL;
wenzelm@4335
  1385
nipkow@3580
  1386
* HOL/simplifier: terms of the form
paulson@4325
  1387
  `? x. P1(x) & ... & Pn(x) & x=t & Q1(x) & ... Qn(x)'  (or t=x)
nipkow@3580
  1388
  are rewritten to
nipkow@4035
  1389
  `P1(t) & ... & Pn(t) & Q1(t) & ... Qn(t)',
nipkow@4035
  1390
  and those of the form
paulson@4325
  1391
  `! x. P1(x) & ... & Pn(x) & x=t & Q1(x) & ... Qn(x) --> R(x)'  (or t=x)
nipkow@4035
  1392
  are rewritten to
nipkow@4035
  1393
  `P1(t) & ... & Pn(t) & Q1(t) & ... Qn(t) --> R(t)',
nipkow@4035
  1394
nipkow@4035
  1395
* HOL/datatype
nipkow@4035
  1396
  Each datatype `t' now comes with a theorem `split_t_case' of the form
nipkow@3580
  1397
nipkow@4035
  1398
  P(t_case f1 ... fn x) =
nipkow@4035
  1399
     ( (!y1 ... ym1. x = C1 y1 ... ym1 --> P(f1 y1 ... ym1)) &
nipkow@4035
  1400
        ...
oheimb@4189
  1401
       (!y1 ... ymn. x = Cn y1 ... ymn --> P(f1 y1 ... ymn))
nipkow@4035
  1402
     )
nipkow@4035
  1403
oheimb@4930
  1404
  and a theorem `split_t_case_asm' of the form
oheimb@4189

  1413
  split_list_case and split_option_case.

  1415
* HOL/Arithmetic:
nipkow@4361
  1416
  - `pred n' is automatically converted to `n-1'.
nipkow@4361
  1417
    Users are strongly encouraged not to use `pred' any longer,
nipkow@4361
  1418
    because it will disappear altogether at some point.
nipkow@4361
  1419
  - Users are strongly encouraged to write "0 < n" rather than
nipkow@4361
  1420
    "n ~= 0". Theorems and proof tools have been modified towards this
nipkow@4361
  1421
    `standard'.
nipkow@4357
  1422
nipkow@4502
  1423
* HOL/Lists:
nipkow@4502
  1424
  the function "set_of_list" has been renamed "set" (and its theorems too);
nipkow@4502
  1425
  the function "nth" now takes its arguments in the reverse order and
nipkow@4502
  1426
  has acquired the infix notation "!" as in "xs!n".
paulson@3570
  1427
paulson@4154
  1428
* HOL/Set: UNIV is now a constant and is no longer translated to Compl{};
paulson@4154
  1429
paulson@4154
  1430
* HOL/Set: The operator (UN x.B x) now abbreviates (UN x:UNIV. B x) and its
paulson@4154
  1431
  specialist theorems (like UN1_I) are gone.  Similarly for (INT x.B x);
paulson@4154
  1432
wenzelm@4575
  1433
* HOL/record: extensible records with schematic structural subtyping
wenzelm@4575
  1434
(single inheritance); EXPERIMENTAL version demonstrating the encoding,
wenzelm@4575
  1435
still lacks various theorems and concrete record syntax;

paulson@3715
  1438
*** HOLCF ***
wenzelm@3535
  1439
wenzelm@4125
  1440
* removed "axioms" and "generated by" sections;
wenzelm@4125
  1441
oheimb@4123
  1442
* replaced "ops" section by extended "consts" section, which is capable of
wenzelm@4125
  1443
  handling the continuous function space "->" directly;
wenzelm@4125
  1444
wenzelm@4125
  1445
* domain package:
wenzelm@4125
  1446
  . proves theorems immediately and stores them in the theory,
wenzelm@4125
  1447
  . creates hierachical name space,
wenzelm@4125
  1448
  . now uses normal mixfix annotations (instead of cinfix...),
wenzelm@4125
  1449
  . minor changes to some names and values (for consistency),
wenzelm@4125
  1450
  . e.g. cases -> casedist, dists_eq -> dist_eqs, [take_lemma] -> take_lemmas,
wenzelm@4125
  1451
  . separator between mutual domain defs: changed "," to "and",
wenzelm@4125
  1452
  . improved handling of sort constraints;  now they have to
wenzelm@4125
  1453
    appear on the left-hand side of the equations only;
oheimb@4123
  1454
oheimb@4123
  1455
* fixed LAM <x,y,zs>.b syntax;
wenzelm@3567
  1456
wenzelm@3744
  1457
* added extended adm_tac to simplifier in HOLCF -- can now discharge
wenzelm@3744
  1458
adm (%x. P (t x)), where P is chainfinite and t continuous;

paulson@3719
  1461
*** FOL and ZF ***
paulson@3719
  1462
wenzelm@5726
  1463
* FOL: there is a new splitter `split_asm_tac' that can be used e.g.
oheimb@4189
  1464
  with `addloop' of the simplifier to faciliate case splitting in premises.
oheimb@4189
  1465
wenzelm@3744
  1466
* qed_spec_mp, qed_goal_spec_mp, qed_goalw_spec_mp are available, as
wenzelm@3744
  1467
in HOL, they strip ALL and --> from proved theorems;

wenzelm@2654
  1473
paulson@3002
  1474
*** General Changes ***
paulson@3002
  1475
paulson@3002
  1476
* new utilities to build / run / maintain Isabelle etc. (in parts
paulson@3002
  1477
still somewhat experimental); old Makefiles etc. still functional;
wenzelm@2971
  1478
wenzelm@3205
  1479
* new 'Isabelle System Manual';
wenzelm@3205
  1480
wenzelm@2825
  1481
* INSTALL text, together with ./configure and ./build scripts;
wenzelm@2773
  1482
wenzelm@3006
  1483
* reimplemented type inference for greater efficiency, better error
wenzelm@3006
  1484
messages and clean internal interface;
paulson@3002
  1485
paulson@3002
  1486
* prlim command for dealing with lots of subgoals (an easier way of
paulson@3002
  1487
setting goals_limit);
paulson@3002
  1488
wenzelm@3006
  1489
wenzelm@3006
  1490
*** Syntax ***
paulson@3002
  1491
wenzelm@3116
  1492
* supports alternative (named) syntax tables (parser and pretty
wenzelm@3116
  1493
printer); internal interface is provided by add_modesyntax(_i);
wenzelm@3116
  1494
paulson@3002
  1495
* Pure, FOL, ZF, HOL, HOLCF now support symbolic input and output; to
paulson@3002
  1496
be used in conjunction with the Isabelle symbol font; uses the
paulson@3002
  1497
"symbols" syntax table;
paulson@3002
  1498
wenzelm@2705
  1499
* added token_translation interface (may translate name tokens in
wenzelm@2756
  1500
arbitrary ways, dependent on their type (free, bound, tfree, ...) and
wenzelm@3116
  1501
the current print_mode); IMPORTANT: user print translation functions
wenzelm@3116
  1502
are responsible for marking newly introduced bounds
wenzelm@3116
  1503
(Syntax.mark_boundT);
wenzelm@2705
  1504
wenzelm@2730
  1505
* token translations for modes "xterm" and "xterm_color" that display
wenzelm@3006
  1506
names in bold, underline etc. or colors (which requires a color
wenzelm@3006
  1507
version of xterm);
wenzelm@2730
  1508
paulson@3002
  1509
* infixes may now be declared with names independent of their syntax;
paulson@3002
  1510
paulson@3002
  1511
* added typed_print_translation (like print_translation, but may
paulson@3002
  1512
access type of constant);
paulson@3002
  1513
wenzelm@3006

paulson@3002
  1515
*** Classical Reasoner ***
paulson@3002
  1516
paulson@3002
  1517
Blast_tac: a new tactic!  It is often more powerful than fast_tac, but has
paulson@3002
  1518
some limitations.  Blast_tac...
paulson@3002
  1519
  + ignores addss, addbefore, addafter; this restriction is intrinsic
paulson@3002
  1520
  + ignores elimination rules that don't have the correct format
wenzelm@5726
  1521
        (the conclusion MUST be a formula variable)
paulson@3002
  1522
  + ignores types, which can make HOL proofs fail
paulson@3002
  1523
  + rules must not require higher-order unification, e.g. apply_type in ZF
paulson@3002
  1524
    [message "Function Var's argument not a bound variable" relates to this]
paulson@3002
  1525
  + its proof strategy is more general but can actually be slower
paulson@3002
  1526
wenzelm@3107
  1527
* substitution with equality assumptions no longer permutes other
wenzelm@3107
  1528
assumptions;
paulson@3002
  1529
paulson@3002
  1530
* minor changes in semantics of addafter (now called addaltern); renamed
paulson@3002
  1531
setwrapper to setWrapper and compwrapper to compWrapper; added safe wrapper
wenzelm@3107
  1532
(and access functions for it);
paulson@3002
  1533
wenzelm@5726
  1534
* improved combination of classical reasoner and simplifier:
oheimb@3317
  1535
  + functions for handling clasimpsets
oheimb@3317
  1536
  + improvement of addss: now the simplifier is called _after_ the
oheimb@3317
  1537
    safe steps.
oheimb@3317
  1538
  + safe variant of addss called addSss: uses safe simplifications
wenzelm@5726
  1539
    _during_ the safe steps. It is more complete as it allows multiple
oheimb@3317
  1540
    instantiations of unknowns (e.g. with slow_tac).
wenzelm@3006
  1541
paulson@3002
  1542
*** Simplifier ***
paulson@3002
  1543
wenzelm@3006
  1544
* added interface for simplification procedures (functions that
wenzelm@3006
  1545
produce *proven* rewrite rules on the fly, depending on current
wenzelm@3006
  1546
redex);
wenzelm@3006
  1547
wenzelm@3006
  1548
* ordering on terms as parameter (used for ordered rewriting);
wenzelm@3006
  1549
wenzelm@3107
  1550
* new functions delcongs, deleqcongs, and Delcongs. richer rep_ss;
paulson@3002
  1551
paulson@3002
  1552
* the solver is now split into a safe and an unsafe part.
paulson@3002
  1553
This should be invisible for the normal user, except that the
paulson@3002
  1554
functions setsolver and addsolver have been renamed to setSolver and
wenzelm@3107
  1555
addSolver; added safe_asm_full_simp_tac;
paulson@3002
  1556
paulson@3002

paulson@3002
  1558
*** HOL ***
paulson@3002
  1559
nipkow@3042
  1560
* a generic induction tactic `induct_tac' which works for all datatypes and
wenzelm@3107
  1561
also for type `nat';
nipkow@3042
  1562
nipkow@3316
  1563
* a generic case distinction tactic `exhaust_tac' which works for all
nipkow@3316
  1564
datatypes and also for type `nat';
nipkow@3316
  1565
nipkow@3316
  1566
* each datatype comes with a function `size';
nipkow@3316
  1567
paulson@3002
  1568
* patterns in case expressions allow tuple patterns as arguments to
wenzelm@3107
  1569
constructors, for example `case x of [] => ... | (x,y,z)#ps => ...';
paulson@3002
  1570
paulson@3002
  1571
* primrec now also works with type nat;
paulson@3002
  1572
paulson@3338
  1573
* recdef: a new declaration form, allows general recursive functions to be
paulson@3338
  1574
defined in theory files.  See HOL/ex/Fib, HOL/ex/Primes, HOL/Subst/Unify.
paulson@3338
  1575
paulson@3002
  1576
* the constant for negation has been renamed from "not" to "Not" to
wenzelm@3107
  1577
harmonize with FOL, ZF, LK, etc.;
paulson@3002
  1578
wenzelm@3107
  1579

wenzelm@3107
  1580
infinite lists;

wenzelm@3227
  1583
paulson@3002
  1584
* HOL/ex/Ring.thy declares cring_simp, which solves equational
paulson@3002
  1585
problems in commutative rings, using axiomatic type classes for + and *;
paulson@3002
  1586
paulson@3002
  1587
* more examples in HOL/MiniML and HOL/Auth;
paulson@3002
  1588
paulson@3002
  1589
* more default rewrite rules for quantifiers, union/intersection;
paulson@3002
  1590
nipkow@3321
  1591
* a new constant `arbitrary == @x.False';
nipkow@3321
  1592
wenzelm@3107
  1593
* HOLCF/IOA replaces old HOL/IOA;
wenzelm@3107
  1594
wenzelm@5726
  1595
* HOLCF changes: derived all rules and arities
wenzelm@5726
  1596
  + axiomatic type classes instead of classes
slotosch@2653
  1597
  + typedef instead of faking type definitions
paulson@2747
  1598
  + eliminated the internal constants less_fun, less_cfun, UU_fun, UU_cfun etc.
wenzelm@2730
  1599
  + new axclasses cpo, chfin, flat with flat < chfin < pcpo < cpo < po
slotosch@2653
  1600
  + eliminated the types void, one, tr
slotosch@2653
  1601
  + use unit lift and bool lift (with translations) instead of one and tr
slotosch@2653
  1602
  + eliminated blift from Lift3.thy (use Def instead of blift)
wenzelm@3107
  1603
  all eliminated rules are derived as theorems --> no visible changes ;

*** ZF ***
wenzelm@2553
  1607
paulson@2865
  1608
* ZF now has Fast_tac, Simp_tac and Auto_tac.  Union_iff is a now a default
paulson@2865
  1609
rewrite rule; this may affect some proofs.  eq_cs is gone but can be put back
paulson@2865

wenzelm@2554
  1622
quantifications in as far as possible (COULD MAKE EXISTING PROOFS
wenzelm@2554
  1623
FAIL); can suppress it using the command Delsimps (ex_simps @

* a new logic, CHOL, the same as HOL, but with a curried syntax
wenzelm@5726
  1710
for functions.  Application looks like f a b instead of f(a,b).  Also pairs
paulson@2557
  1711
look like (a,b) instead of <a,b>;
paulson@2557
  1712
paulson@2557
  1713
* PLEASE NOTE: CHOL will eventually replace HOL!
paulson@2557
  1714
paulson@2557
  1715
* In CHOL, pattern-matching on tuples is now available in all abstractions.
paulson@2557
  1716
It translates to the operator "split".  A new theory of integers is available;
paulson@2557
  1717
paulson@2557
  1718
* In ZF, integer numerals now denote two's-complement binary integers.
paulson@2557
  1719
Arithmetic operations can be performed by rewriting.  See ZF/ex/Bin.ML;
paulson@2557
  1720
wenzelm@5726
  1721
* Many new examples: I/O automata, Church-Rosser theorem, equivalents
paulson@2557
  1722
of the Axiom of Choice;

* Significantly faster resolution;
paulson@2557
  1730
paulson@2557
  1731
* the different sections in a .thy file can now be mixed and repeated
paulson@2557
  1732
freely;
paulson@2557
  1733
paulson@2557
  1734
* Database of theorems for FOL, HOL and ZF.  New
paulson@2557
  1735
commands including qed, qed_goal and bind_thm store theorems in the database.
paulson@2557
  1736
paulson@2557
  1737
* Simple database queries: return a named theorem (get_thm) or all theorems of
paulson@2557
  1738
a given theory (thms_of), or find out what theory a theorem was proved in
paulson@2557
  1739
(theory_of_thm);
paulson@2557
  1740
paulson@2557
  1741
* Bugs fixed in the inductive definition and datatype packages;
paulson@2557
  1742
paulson@2557
  1743
* The classical reasoner provides deepen_tac and depth_tac, making FOL_dup_cs
paulson@2557
  1744
and HOL_dup_cs obsolete;
paulson@2557
  1745
paulson@2557
  1746
* Syntactic ambiguities caused by the new treatment of syntax in Isabelle94-1
paulson@2557
  1747
have been removed;
paulson@2557
  1748
paulson@2557
  1749
* Simpler definition of function space in ZF;
paulson@2557
  1750
paulson@2557
  1751
* new results about cardinal and ordinal arithmetic in ZF;
paulson@2557
  1752
paulson@2557
  1753
* 'subtype' facility in HOL for introducing new types as subsets of existing
paulson@2557
  1754
types;
