New in this Isabelle version

*** General ***
wenzelm@37536
     8
wenzelm@37536
     9
* Explicit treatment of UTF8 sequences as Isabelle symbols, such that
wenzelm@37536
    10
a Unicode character is treated as a single symbol, not a sequence of
wenzelm@37536
    11
non-ASCII bytes as before.  Since Isabelle/ML string literals may
wenzelm@37536
    12
contain symbols without further backslash escapes, Unicode can now be
wenzelm@37536
    13
used here as well.  Recall that Symbol.explode in ML provides a
wenzelm@37536
    14
consistent view on symbols, while raw explode (or String.explode)
wenzelm@37536
    15
merely give a byte-oriented representation.
wenzelm@37536
    16
wenzelm@38135
    17
* Theory loading: only the master source file is looked-up in the
wenzelm@38135
    18
implicit load path, all other files are addressed relatively to its
wenzelm@38135
    19
directory.  Minor INCOMPATIBILITY, subtle change in semantics.
wenzelm@38135
    20
wenzelm@37939
    21
* Special treatment of ML file names has been discontinued.
wenzelm@37939
    22
Historically, optional extensions .ML or .sml were added on demand --
wenzelm@37939
    23
at the cost of clarity of file dependencies.  Recall that Isabelle/ML
wenzelm@37939
    24
files exclusively use the .ML extension.  Minor INCOMPATIBILTY.
wenzelm@37939
    25
wenzelm@38980
    26
* Various options that affect pretty printing etc. are now properly
wenzelm@38767
    27
handled within the context via configuration options, instead of
wenzelm@38767
    28
unsynchronized references.  There are both ML Config.T entities and
wenzelm@38767
    29
Isar declaration attributes to access these.

wenzelm@39125
    48
Note that corresponding "..._default" references in ML may be only
wenzelm@38767
    49
changed globally at the ROOT session setup, but *not* within a theory.

*** Pure ***
ballarin@38110
    53
ballarin@38110
    54
* Interpretation command 'interpret' accepts a list of equations like
ballarin@38110
    55
'interpretation' does.
ballarin@38110
    56
ballarin@38110
    57
* Diagnostic command 'print_interps' prints interpretations in proofs
ballarin@38110
    58
in addition to interpretations in theories.
ballarin@38110
    59
wenzelm@38708
    60
* Discontinued obsolete 'global' and 'local' commands to manipulate
wenzelm@38708
    61
the theory name space.  Rare INCOMPATIBILITY.  The ML functions
wenzelm@38708
    62
Sign.root_path and Sign.local_path may be applied directly where this
wenzelm@38708
    63
feature is still required for historical reasons.

*** HOL ***
haftmann@37387
    67
haftmann@38857
    68
* Renamed class eq and constant eq (for code generation) to class equal
haftmann@38857
    69
and constant equal, plus renaming of related facts and various tuning.
haftmann@38857
    70
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@38857
    71
haftmann@38814
    72
* Scala (2.8 or higher) has been added to the target languages of
haftmann@38814
    73
the code generator.
haftmann@38814
    74
haftmann@38642
    75
* Dropped type classes mult_mono and mult_mono1.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@38642
    76
haftmann@38622
    77
* Theory SetsAndFunctions has been split into Function_Algebras and Set_Algebras;
haftmann@38622
    78
canonical names for instance definitions for functions; various improvements.
haftmann@38622
    79
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@38622
    80
haftmann@38545
    81
* Records: logical foundation type for records do not carry a '_type' suffix
haftmann@38545
    82
any longer.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@38545
    83
haftmann@38535
    84
* Code generation for records: more idiomatic representation of record types.
haftmann@38535
    85
Warning: records are not covered by ancient SML code generation any longer.
haftmann@38537
    86
INCOMPATIBILITY.  In cases of need, a suitable rep_datatype declaration
haftmann@38537
    87
helps to succeed then:
haftmann@38537
    88
haftmann@38537
    89
  record 'a foo = ...
haftmann@38537
    90
  ...
haftmann@38537
    91
  rep_datatype foo_ext ...
haftmann@38535
    92
haftmann@38461
    93
* Session Imperative_HOL: revamped, corrected dozens of inadequacies.
haftmann@38461
    94
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@38461
    95
haftmann@38461
    96
* Quickcheck in locales considers interpretations of that locale for
haftmann@38461
    97
counter example search.
haftmann@38461
    98
haftmann@38347
    99
* Theory Library/Monad_Syntax provides do-syntax for monad types.  Syntax
haftmann@38347
   100
in Library/State_Monad has been changed to avoid ambiguities.
haftmann@38347
   101
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@38347
   102
haftmann@38461
   103
* Code generator: export_code without explicit file declaration prints
haftmann@37820
   104
to standard output.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@37820
   105
haftmann@37679
   106
* Abolished symbol type names:  "prod" and "sum" replace "*" and "+"
haftmann@37681
   107
respectively.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@37679
   108
haftmann@37591
   109
* Constant "split" has been merged with constant "prod_case";  names
haftmann@37591
   110
of ML functions, facts etc. involving split have been retained so far,
haftmann@37591
   111
though.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@37591
   112
haftmann@37595
   113
* Dropped old infix syntax "mem" for List.member;  use "in set"
haftmann@37595
   114
instead.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@37595
   115
haftmann@37595
   116
* Refactoring of code-generation specific operations in List.thy

   125
INCOMPATIBILITY.  Note that these were not suppossed to be used
haftmann@37595
   126
regularly unless for striking reasons;  their main purpose was code
haftmann@37595
   127
generation.
haftmann@37595

   160
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@37383
   161
haftmann@37411
   162
* Removed simplifier congruence rule of "prod_case", as has for long
haftmann@38524
   163
been the case with "split".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@37411
   164
haftmann@37423
   165
* Datatype package: theorems generated for executable equality
haftmann@37423
   166
(class eq) carry proper names and are treated as default code
haftmann@37423
   167
equations.
haftmann@37423
   168
haftmann@37423
   169
* List.thy: use various operations from the Haskell prelude when
haftmann@37423
   170
generating Haskell code.
haftmann@37423
   171
haftmann@38524
   172
* code_simp.ML and method code_simp: simplification with rules determined
haftmann@38524
   173
by code generator.
haftmann@37442
   174
haftmann@37442
   175
* code generator: do not print function definitions for case
haftmann@37442
   176
combinators any longer.
haftmann@37442
   177
hoelzl@37666
   178
* Multivariate Analysis: Introduced a type class for euclidean space. Most
hoelzl@37666
   179
theorems are now stated in terms of euclidean spaces instead of finite
hoelzl@37666
   180
cartesian products.

     CARD('n)     ~> DIM('a)
hoelzl@37666
   192
hoelzl@37666
   193
Also note that the indices are now natural numbers and not from some finite
hoelzl@37666
   194
type. Finite cartesian products of euclidean spaces, products of euclidean
hoelzl@37666
   195
spaces the real and complex numbers are instantiated to be euclidean_spaces.
hoelzl@37666
   196
hoelzl@37666
   197
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@37383
   198
hoelzl@38656
   199
* Probability: Introduced pinfreal as real numbers with infinity. Use pinfreal
hoelzl@38656
   200
as value for measures. Introduces Lebesgue Measure based on the integral in
hoelzl@38656
   201
Multivariate Analysis. Proved Radon Nikodym for arbitrary sigma finite measure
hoelzl@38656
   202
spaces.
hoelzl@38656
   203
hoelzl@38656
   204
 INCOMPATIBILITY.
hoelzl@38656
   205
bulwahn@37735
   206
* Inductive package: offers new command "inductive_simps" to automatically
haftmann@38461
   207
derive instantiated and simplified equations for inductive predicates,
haftmann@38461
   208
similar to inductive_cases.
bulwahn@37735
   209
hoelzl@39077
   210
* "bij f" is now an abbreviation of "bij_betw f UNIV UNIV". surj_on is a
hoelzl@39077
   211
generalization of surj, and "surj f" is now a abbreviation of "surj_on f UNIV".
hoelzl@39077
   212
The theorems bij_def and surj_def are unchanged.

*** FOL ***
haftmann@38522

*** ML ***
wenzelm@37868
   225
wenzelm@38980
   226
* Configuration option show_question_marks only affects regular pretty
wenzelm@38980
   227
printing of types and terms, not raw Term.string_of_vname.
wenzelm@38980
   228
wenzelm@38980
   229
* ML structure Unsynchronized never opened, not even in Isar
wenzelm@38980
   230
interaction mode as before.  Old Unsynchronized.set etc. have been
wenzelm@38980
   231
discontinued -- use plain := instead.  This should be *rare* anyway,
wenzelm@38980
   232
since modern tools always work via official context data, notably
wenzelm@38980
   233
configuration options.
wenzelm@38980
   234
wenzelm@37868
   235
* ML antiquotations @{theory} and @{theory_ref} refer to named
wenzelm@37868
   236
theories from the ancestry of the current context, not any accidental
wenzelm@37868
   237
theory loader state as before.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY, subtle
wenzelm@37868
   238
change in semantics.

*** System ***
wenzelm@38470
   242
wenzelm@38470
   243
* Discontinued support for Poly/ML 5.0 and 5.1 versions.

*** General ***
wenzelm@35260
   251
wenzelm@35436
   252
* Authentic syntax for *all* logical entities (type classes, type
wenzelm@35436
   253
constructors, term constants): provides simple and robust
wenzelm@35436
   254
correspondence between formal entities and concrete syntax.  Within
wenzelm@35436
   255
the parse tree / AST representations, "constants" are decorated by
wenzelm@35436
   256
their category (class, type, const) and spelled out explicitly with
wenzelm@35436
   257
their full internal name.
wenzelm@35436
   258
wenzelm@35436
   259
Substantial INCOMPATIBILITY concerning low-level syntax declarations
wenzelm@35436
   260
and translations (translation rules and translation functions in ML).
wenzelm@35436
   261
Some hints on upgrading:
wenzelm@35260
   262
wenzelm@35260
   263
  - Many existing uses of 'syntax' and 'translations' can be replaced
wenzelm@35436
   264
    by more modern 'type_notation', 'notation' and 'abbreviation',
wenzelm@35436
   265
    which are independent of this issue.
wenzelm@35260
   266
wenzelm@35260
   267
  - 'translations' require markup within the AST; the term syntax
wenzelm@35260
   268
    provides the following special forms:
wenzelm@35260
   269
wenzelm@35260
   270
      CONST c   -- produces syntax version of constant c from context
wenzelm@35261
   271
      XCONST c  -- literally c, checked as constant from context
wenzelm@35261
   272
      c         -- literally c, if declared by 'syntax'
wenzelm@35261
   273
wenzelm@35261
   274
    Plain identifiers are treated as AST variables -- occasionally the
wenzelm@35261
   275
    system indicates accidental variables via the error "rhs contains
wenzelm@35261
   276
    extra variables".
wenzelm@35260
   277
wenzelm@35436
   278
    Type classes and type constructors are marked according to their
wenzelm@35436
   279
    concrete syntax.  Some old translations rules need to be written
wenzelm@35436
   280
    for the "type" category, using type constructor application
wenzelm@35436
   281
    instead of pseudo-term application of the default category
wenzelm@35436
   282
    "logic".
wenzelm@35436
   283
wenzelm@35260
   284
  - 'parse_translation' etc. in ML may use the following
wenzelm@35260
   285
    antiquotations:
wenzelm@35260
   286
wenzelm@35436
   287
      @{class_syntax c}   -- type class c within parse tree / AST
wenzelm@35436
   288
      @{term_syntax c}    -- type constructor c within parse tree / AST
wenzelm@35260
   289
      @{const_syntax c}   -- ML version of "CONST c" above
wenzelm@35260
   290
      @{syntax_const c}   -- literally c (checked wrt. 'syntax' declarations)
wenzelm@35260
   291
wenzelm@35436
   292
  - Literal types within 'typed_print_translations', i.e. those *not*
wenzelm@35436
   293
    represented as pseudo-terms are represented verbatim.  Use @{class
wenzelm@35436
   294
    c} or @{type_name c} here instead of the above syntax
wenzelm@35436
   295
    antiquotations.
wenzelm@35436
   296
wenzelm@35260
   297
Note that old non-authentic syntax was based on unqualified base
wenzelm@35436
   298
names, so all of the above "constant" names would coincide.  Recall
wenzelm@35436
   299
that 'print_syntax' and ML_command "set Syntax.trace_ast" help to
wenzelm@35436
   300
diagnose syntax problems.
wenzelm@35260
   301
wenzelm@35351
   302
* Type constructors admit general mixfix syntax, not just infix.
wenzelm@35351
   303
wenzelm@36508
   304
* Concrete syntax may be attached to local entities without a proof
wenzelm@36508
   305
body, too.  This works via regular mixfix annotations for 'fix',
wenzelm@36508
   306
'def', 'obtain' etc. or via the explicit 'write' command, which is
wenzelm@36508
   307
similar to the 'notation' command in theory specifications.
wenzelm@36508
   308
wenzelm@37351
   309
* Discontinued unnamed infix syntax (legacy feature for many years) --
wenzelm@37351
   310
need to specify constant name and syntax separately.  Internal ML
wenzelm@37351
   311
datatype constructors have been renamed from InfixName to Infix etc.
wenzelm@37351
   312
Minor INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@37351
   313
wenzelm@37351
   314
* Schematic theorem statements need to be explicitly markup as such,
wenzelm@37351
   315
via commands 'schematic_lemma', 'schematic_theorem',
wenzelm@37351
   316
'schematic_corollary'.  Thus the relevance of the proof is made
wenzelm@37351
   317
syntactically clear, which impacts performance in a parallel or
wenzelm@37351
   318
asynchronous interactive environment.  Minor INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@37351
   319
wenzelm@35613
   320
* Use of cumulative prems via "!" in some proof methods has been
wenzelm@37351
   321
discontinued (old legacy feature).
wenzelm@35613
   322
boehmes@35979
   323
* References 'trace_simp' and 'debug_simp' have been replaced by
wenzelm@36857
   324
configuration options stored in the context. Enabling tracing (the
wenzelm@36857
   325
case of debugging is similar) in proofs works via
wenzelm@36857
   326
wenzelm@36857
   327
  using [[trace_simp = true]]
wenzelm@36857
   328
wenzelm@36857
   329
Tracing is then active for all invocations of the simplifier in
wenzelm@36857
   330
subsequent goal refinement steps. Tracing may also still be enabled or
wenzelm@36857
   331
disabled via the ProofGeneral settings menu.

wenzelm@36177
   333
* Separate commands 'hide_class', 'hide_type', 'hide_const',
wenzelm@36177
   334
'hide_fact' replace the former 'hide' KIND command.  Minor
wenzelm@36177
   335
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@36177
   336
wenzelm@37298
   337
* Improved parallelism of proof term normalization: usedir -p2 -q0 is
wenzelm@37298
   338
more efficient than combinations with -q1 or -q2.

wenzelm@37351

* Proofterms record type-class reasoning explicitly, using the
wenzelm@37351
   344
"unconstrain" operation internally.  This eliminates all sort
wenzelm@37351
   345
constraints from a theorem and proof, introducing explicit
wenzelm@37351
   346
OFCLASS-premises.  On the proof term level, this operation is
wenzelm@37351
   347
automatically applied at theorem boundaries, such that closed proofs
wenzelm@37351
   348
are always free of sort constraints.  INCOMPATIBILITY for tools that
wenzelm@37351
   349
inspect proof terms.
haftmann@36147
   350
wenzelm@35765
   351
* Local theory specifications may depend on extra type variables that
wenzelm@35765
   352
are not present in the result type -- arguments TYPE('a) :: 'a itself
wenzelm@35765
   353
are added internally.  For example:
wenzelm@35765
   354
wenzelm@35765
   355
  definition unitary :: bool where "unitary = (ALL (x::'a) y. x = y)"
wenzelm@35765
   356
wenzelm@37351
   357
* Predicates of locales introduced by classes carry a mandatory
wenzelm@37351
   358
"class" prefix.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@37351
   359
wenzelm@37351
   360
* Vacuous class specifications observe default sort.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@37351
   361
wenzelm@37351
   362
* Old 'axclass' command has been discontinued.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use
wenzelm@37351
   363
'class' instead.
wenzelm@37351
   364
wenzelm@37351
   365
* Command 'code_reflect' allows to incorporate generated ML code into
wenzelm@37351
   366
runtime environment; replaces immature code_datatype antiquotation.
wenzelm@37351
   367
INCOMPATIBILITY.

wenzelm@37351

   373
user space functionality any longer.
wenzelm@36857
   374
wenzelm@37351
   375
* Methods "unfold_locales" and "intro_locales" ignore non-locale
wenzelm@37351
   376
subgoals.  This is more appropriate for interpretations with 'where'.
wenzelm@36857
   377
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@34170
   378
wenzelm@36356
   379
* Command 'example_proof' opens an empty proof body.  This allows to
wenzelm@36356
   380
experiment with Isar, without producing any persistent result.
wenzelm@36356
   381
wenzelm@35413
   382
* Commands 'type_notation' and 'no_type_notation' declare type syntax
wenzelm@35413

within a local theory context, with explicit checking of the
wenzelm@35413
   384
constructors involved (in contrast to the raw 'syntax' versions).
wenzelm@35413
   385
wenzelm@36178
   386
* Commands 'types' and 'typedecl' now work within a local theory
wenzelm@36178

context -- without introducing dependencies on parameters or
wenzelm@36178
   388
assumptions, which is not possible in Isabelle/Pure.
wenzelm@35681
   389
wenzelm@36857

wenzelm@37351
   397
introducing dependencies on parameters or assumptions, which is not
wenzelm@37351
   398
possible in Isabelle/Pure/HOL.  Note that the logical environment may
wenzelm@37351
   399
contain multiple interpretations of local typedefs (with different
wenzelm@37351
   400
non-emptiness proofs), even in a global theory context.
wenzelm@37351
   401
wenzelm@37351
   402
* New package for quotient types.  Commands 'quotient_type' and
wenzelm@37351
   403
'quotient_definition' may be used for defining types and constants by
wenzelm@37351
   404
quotient constructions.  An example is the type of integers created by
wenzelm@37351
   405
quotienting pairs of natural numbers:
wenzelm@37380
   406
wenzelm@37351

wenzelm@37380

wenzelm@37351
   417
wenzelm@37351
   418
The method "lifting" can be used to lift of theorems from the
wenzelm@37351
   419
underlying "raw" type to the quotient type.  The example
wenzelm@37351
   420
src/HOL/Quotient_Examples/FSet.thy includes such a quotient
wenzelm@37351
   421
construction and provides a reasoning infrastructure for finite sets.
wenzelm@37351
   422
wenzelm@37351
   423
* Renamed Library/Quotient.thy to Library/Quotient_Type.thy to avoid

wenzelm@37351
   425

  - classes division_ring_inverse_zero, field_inverse_zero,
wenzelm@36857
   574
    linordered_field_inverse_zero include rule inverse 0 = 0 --

   578
haftmann@36416

* Refined algebra theorem collections:
wenzelm@36857
   580
  - dropped theorem group group_simps, use algebra_simps instead;
wenzelm@36857
   581
  - dropped theorem group ring_simps, use field_simps instead;
wenzelm@36857
   582
  - proper theorem collection field_simps subsumes former theorem
wenzelm@36857
   583
    groups field_eq_simps and field_simps;
wenzelm@36857
   584
  - dropped lemma eq_minus_self_iff which is a duplicate for
wenzelm@36857
   585
    equal_neg_zero.

replaced by the more convenient lemmas Inf_empty and Sup_empty.
haftmann@36416
   604
Dropped lemmas Inf_insert_simp and Sup_insert_simp, which are subsumed
haftmann@36416
   605
by Inf_insert and Sup_insert.  Lemmas Inf_UNIV and Sup_UNIV replace
haftmann@36416

   610
multiset order:
wenzelm@37351
   611
wenzelm@36857
   612
  - pointwise ordering is instance of class order with standard syntax
wenzelm@36857
   613
    <= and <;
wenzelm@36857
   614
  - multiset ordering has syntax <=# and <#; partial order properties
wenzelm@36857
   615
    are provided by means of interpretation with prefix
wenzelm@36857
   616
    multiset_order;
wenzelm@36857
   617
  - less duplication, less historical organization of sections,
wenzelm@36857
   618
    conversion from associations lists to multisets, rudimentary code
wenzelm@36857
   619
    generation;
wenzelm@36857
   620
  - use insert_DiffM2 [symmetric] instead of elem_imp_eq_diff_union,

blanchet@36929
   678
    INCOMPATIBILITY.
blanchet@36929
   679
  - Added user's manual ("isabelle doc sledgehammer").
blanchet@36929
   680
  - Added option syntax and "sledgehammer_params" to customize
blanchet@36929
   681
    Sledgehammer's behavior.  See the manual for details.
blanchet@36929
   682
  - Modified the Isar proof reconstruction code so that it produces
blanchet@36929
   683
    direct proofs rather than proofs by contradiction.  (This feature
blanchet@36929
   684
    is still experimental.)
blanchet@36929
   685
  - Made Isar proof reconstruction work for SPASS, remote ATPs, and in
blanchet@36929
   686
    full-typed mode.
blanchet@36929
   687
  - Added support for TPTP syntax for SPASS via the "spass_tptp" ATP.
blanchet@36929
   688
blanchet@36928
   689
* Nitpick:
blanchet@36928
   690
  - Added and implemented "binary_ints" and "bits" options.
blanchet@36928
   691
  - Added "std" option and implemented support for nonstandard models.
blanchet@36928
   692
  - Added and implemented "finitize" option to improve the precision
blanchet@36928
   693
    of infinite datatypes based on a monotonicity analysis.
blanchet@36928
   694
  - Added support for quotient types.
blanchet@36928
   695
  - Added support for "specification" and "ax_specification"
blanchet@36928
   696
    constructs.
blanchet@36928
   697
  - Added support for local definitions (for "function" and
blanchet@36928
   698
    "termination" proofs).
blanchet@36928
   699
  - Added support for term postprocessors.
blanchet@36928
   700
  - Optimized "Multiset.multiset" and "FinFun.finfun".
blanchet@36928
   701
  - Improved efficiency of "destroy_constrs" optimization.
blanchet@36928
   702
  - Fixed soundness bugs related to "destroy_constrs" optimization and
blanchet@36928
   703
    record getters.
blanchet@37272
   704
  - Fixed soundness bug related to higher-order constructors.
blanchet@37272
   705
  - Fixed soundness bug when "full_descrs" is enabled.
blanchet@36928
   706
  - Improved precision of set constructs.
blanchet@37260
   707
  - Added "atoms" option.
blanchet@36928
   708
  - Added cache to speed up repeated Kodkod invocations on the same
blanchet@36928
   709
    problems.
blanchet@36928
   710
  - Renamed "MiniSatJNI", "zChaffJNI", "BerkMinAlloy", and
blanchet@36928
   711
    "SAT4JLight" to "MiniSat_JNI", "zChaff_JNI", "BerkMin_Alloy", and
blanchet@36928
   712
    "SAT4J_Light".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
blanchet@36928
   713
  - Removed "skolemize", "uncurry", "sym_break", "flatten_prop",
blanchet@36928
   714
    "sharing_depth", and "show_skolems" options.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
blanchet@37264

* Method "induct" now takes instantiations of the form t, where t is not
berghofe@37361
   718
  a variable, as a shorthand for "x == t", where x is a fresh variable.
berghofe@37361
   719
  If this is not intended, t has to be enclosed in parentheses.
berghofe@37361
   720
  By default, the equalities generated by definitional instantiations
berghofe@37361
   721
  are pre-simplified, which may cause parameters of inductive cases
berghofe@37361
   722
  to disappear, or may even delete some of the inductive cases.
berghofe@37361
   723
  Use "induct (no_simp)" instead of "induct" to restore the old
berghofe@37361
   724
  behaviour. The (no_simp) option is also understood by the "cases"
berghofe@37361
   725
  and "nominal_induct" methods, which now perform pre-simplification, too.
berghofe@37361

* Variable names in lemmas generated by the domain package have
huffman@36828

huffman@36828

huffman@36828

* Antiquotations for basic formal entities:
wenzelm@37351
   788
wenzelm@37351
   789
    @{class NAME}         -- type class
wenzelm@37351
   790
    @{class_syntax NAME}  -- syntax representation of the above

    @{const_syntax NAME}  -- syntax representation of any of the above
wenzelm@37351
   800
wenzelm@37351
   801
* Antiquotation @{syntax_const NAME} ensures that NAME refers to a raw
wenzelm@37351
   802
syntax constant (cf. 'syntax' command).
wenzelm@37351
   803
wenzelm@37351
   804
* Antiquotation @{make_string} inlines a function to print arbitrary
wenzelm@37351
   805
values similar to the ML toplevel.  The result is compiler dependent
wenzelm@37351
   806
and may fall back on "?" in certain situations.
wenzelm@37351
   807
wenzelm@37351
   808
* Diagnostic commands 'ML_val' and 'ML_command' may refer to
wenzelm@37351
   809
antiquotations @{Isar.state} and @{Isar.goal}.  This replaces impure
wenzelm@37351
   810
Isar.state() and Isar.goal(), which belong to the old TTY loop and do
wenzelm@37351
   811
not work with the asynchronous Isar document model.
wenzelm@37351
   812
wenzelm@37351
   813
* Configuration options now admit dynamic default values, depending on
wenzelm@37351
   814
the context or even global references.
wenzelm@37351

* SHA1.digest digests strings according to SHA-1 (see RFC 3174).  It
wenzelm@37351
   817
uses an efficient external library if available (for Poly/ML).
wenzelm@37351
   818
wenzelm@37144
   819
* Renamed some important ML structures, while keeping the old names
wenzelm@37144
   820
for some time as aliases within the structure Legacy:

wenzelm@37144
   833
Note that "open Legacy" simplifies porting of sources, but forgetting
wenzelm@37144
   834
to remove it again will complicate porting again in the future.
wenzelm@37144
   835
wenzelm@37144
   836
* Most operations that refer to a global context are named
wenzelm@37144
   837
accordingly, e.g. Simplifier.global_context or
wenzelm@37144
   838
ProofContext.init_global.  There are some situations where a global
wenzelm@37144
   839
context actually works, but under normal circumstances one needs to
wenzelm@37144
   840
pass the proper local context through the code!
wenzelm@37144
   841
wenzelm@37144
   842
* Discontinued old TheoryDataFun with its copy/init operation -- data
wenzelm@37144
   843
needs to be pure.  Functor Theory_Data_PP retains the traditional
wenzelm@37144
   844
Pretty.pp argument to merge, which is absent in the standard
wenzelm@37144
   845
Theory_Data version.
wenzelm@36429
   846
wenzelm@37144
   847
* Sorts.certify_sort and derived "cert" operations for types and terms
wenzelm@37144
   848
no longer minimize sorts.  Thus certification at the boundary of the
wenzelm@37144
   849
inference kernel becomes invariant under addition of class relations,
wenzelm@37144
   850
which is an important monotonicity principle.  Sorts are now minimized
wenzelm@37144
   851
in the syntax layer only, at the boundary between the end-user and the
wenzelm@37144
   852
system.  Subtle INCOMPATIBILITY, may have to use Sign.minimize_sort
wenzelm@37144
   853
explicitly in rare situations.
wenzelm@37144
   854
wenzelm@35021
   855
* Renamed old-style Drule.standard to Drule.export_without_context, to
wenzelm@35021
   856
emphasize that this is in no way a standard operation.
wenzelm@35021
   857
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@35021
   858
wenzelm@34076
   859
* Subgoal.FOCUS (and variants): resulting goal state is normalized as
wenzelm@34076
   860
usual for resolution.  Rare INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@34076
   861
wenzelm@35845
   862
* Renamed varify/unvarify operations to varify_global/unvarify_global
wenzelm@35845
   863
to emphasize that these only work in a global situation (which is
wenzelm@35845
   864
quite rare).
wenzelm@35845
   865
wenzelm@37144
   866
* Curried take and drop in library.ML; negative length is interpreted
wenzelm@37144
   867
as infinity (as in chop).  Subtle INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@36961
   868
wenzelm@37351
   869
* Proof terms: type substitutions on proof constants now use canonical
wenzelm@37351
   870
order of type variables.  INCOMPATIBILITY for tools working with proof
wenzelm@37351
   871
terms.
wenzelm@37351
   872
wenzelm@37351
   873
* Raw axioms/defs may no longer carry sort constraints, and raw defs
wenzelm@37351
   874
may no longer carry premises.  User-level specifications are
wenzelm@37351
   875
transformed accordingly by Thm.add_axiom/add_def.

ISABELLE_USEDIR_OPTIONS applies uniformly to all sessions.  Note that
wenzelm@34238
   882
proof terms are enabled unconditionally in the new HOL-Proofs image.
wenzelm@34238
   883
wenzelm@34255

wenzelm@36201
   888
* Old lib/scripts/polyml-platform is superseded by the
wenzelm@36201
   889
ISABELLE_PLATFORM setting variable, which defaults to the 32 bit
wenzelm@36201
   890
variant, even on a 64 bit machine.  The following example setting
wenzelm@36201
   891
prefers 64 bit if available:
wenzelm@36201
   892
wenzelm@36201

wenzelm@37375
   902
similar to the default assignment of the document preparation system
wenzelm@37375

* New proof method "smt" for a combination of first-order logic with
wenzelm@33842
   946
equality, linear and nonlinear (natural/integer/real) arithmetic, and
wenzelm@33842
   947
fixed-size bitvectors; there is also basic support for higher-order
wenzelm@33842
   948
features (esp. lambda abstractions).  It is an incomplete decision
wenzelm@33842
   949
procedure based on external SMT solvers using the oracle mechanism;
wenzelm@33842
   950
for the SMT solver Z3, this method is proof-producing.  Certificates
wenzelm@33842
   951
are provided to avoid calling the external solvers solely for
wenzelm@33842
   952
re-checking proofs.  Due to a remote SMT service there is no need for
wenzelm@33842
   953
installing SMT solvers locally.  See src/HOL/SMT.
wenzelm@33842
   954
wenzelm@33842
   955
* New commands to load and prove verification conditions generated by

   956
the Boogie program verifier or derived systems (e.g. the Verifying C
wenzelm@33842
   957
Compiler (VCC) or Spec#).  See src/HOL/Boogie.
wenzelm@33842
   958
wenzelm@33842

haftmann@33860
   965
haftmann@33860

default generators are provided for all suitable HOL types, records

Library/SML_Quickcheck.
haftmann@33860
   972
wenzelm@33843
   973
* New testing tool Mirabelle for automated proof tools.  Applies
wenzelm@33843
   974
several tools and tactics like sledgehammer, metis, or quickcheck, to
wenzelm@33843
   975
every proof step in a theory.  To be used in batch mode via the

   976
"mirabelle" utility.
wenzelm@33843
   977
wenzelm@33843
   978
* New proof method "sos" (sum of squares) for nonlinear real
wenzelm@33843
   979
arithmetic (originally due to John Harison). It requires theory
wenzelm@33843
   980
Library/Sum_Of_Squares.  It is not a complete decision procedure but
wenzelm@33843
   981
works well in practice on quantifier-free real arithmetic with +, -,
wenzelm@33843
   982
*, ^, =, <= and <, i.e. boolean combinations of equalities and
wenzelm@33843
   983
inequalities between polynomials.  It makes use of external
wenzelm@33843
   984
semidefinite programming solvers.  Method "sos" generates a
wenzelm@33843
   985
certificate that can be pasted into the proof thus avoiding the need
wenzelm@33843
   986
to call an external tool every time the proof is checked.  See
wenzelm@33843
   987
src/HOL/Library/Sum_Of_Squares.
wenzelm@33843

* New command 'atp_minimal' reduces result produced by Sledgehammer.
wenzelm@33843
   993
wenzelm@33843
   994
* New Sledgehammer option "Full Types" in Proof General settings menu.
wenzelm@33843
   995
Causes full type information to be output to the ATPs.  This slows
wenzelm@33843
   996
ATPs down considerably but eliminates a source of unsound "proofs"
wenzelm@33843
   997
that fail later.
wenzelm@33843
   998
wenzelm@33843
   999
* New method "metisFT": A version of metis that uses full type
wenzelm@33843
  1000
information in order to avoid failures of proof reconstruction.
wenzelm@33843
  1001
wenzelm@33843

  1003
the same method as the approximation method.
wenzelm@33843
  1004
wenzelm@33843

wenzelm@33842
  1046
  - lemma ge_sup_conv renamed to le_sup_iff, in accordance with
wenzelm@33842
  1047
    le_inf_iff
wenzelm@33842
  1048
  - dropped lemma alias inf_ACI for inf_aci (same for sup_ACI and
wenzelm@33842
  1049
    sup_aci)
haftmann@32064
  1050
  - renamed ACI to inf_sup_aci
haftmann@32600
  1051
  - new class "boolean_algebra"
wenzelm@33842
  1052
  - class "complete_lattice" moved to separate theory
haftmann@33860
  1053
    "Complete_Lattice"; corresponding constants (and abbreviations)
wenzelm@33842
  1054
    renamed and with authentic syntax:
haftmann@33860
  1055
    Set.Inf ~>    Complete_Lattice.Inf
haftmann@33860
  1056
    Set.Sup ~>    Complete_Lattice.Sup

    Set.INTER ~>  Complete_Lattice.INTER
haftmann@33860
  1062
    Set.UNION ~>  Complete_Lattice.UNION
haftmann@32600
  1063
  - authentic syntax for
haftmann@32600
  1064
    Set.Pow
haftmann@32600
  1065
    Set.image
haftmann@32588
  1066
  - mere abbreviations:
haftmann@32588
  1067
    Set.empty               (for bot)
haftmann@32588
  1068
    Set.UNIV                (for top)
haftmann@33860
  1069
    Set.inter               (for inf, formerly Set.Int)
haftmann@33860
  1070
    Set.union               (for sup, formerly Set.Un)
haftmann@32588
  1071
    Complete_Lattice.Inter  (for Inf)
haftmann@32588

  1073
    Complete_Lattice.INTER  (for INFI)
haftmann@32606
  1074
    Complete_Lattice.UNION  (for SUPR)

  1075
  - object-logic definitions as far as appropriate
haftmann@32217
  1076
haftmann@32691
  1077
INCOMPATIBILITY.  Care is required when theorems Int_subset_iff or
wenzelm@33842
  1078
Un_subset_iff are explicitly deleted as default simp rules; then also
wenzelm@33842
  1079
their lattice counterparts le_inf_iff and le_sup_iff have to be
haftmann@32691
  1080
deleted to achieve the desired effect.
haftmann@32064
  1081
wenzelm@33842
  1082
* Rules inf_absorb1, inf_absorb2, sup_absorb1, sup_absorb2 are no simp
wenzelm@33842
  1083
rules by default any longer; the same applies to min_max.inf_absorb1
wenzelm@33842
  1084
etc.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@33842
  1085
wenzelm@33842
  1086
* Rules sup_Int_eq and sup_Un_eq are no longer declared as
wenzelm@33842
  1087
pred_set_conv by default.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@33842
  1088
wenzelm@33842
  1089
* Power operations on relations and functions are now one dedicated
haftmann@32706
  1090
constant "compow" with infix syntax "^^".  Power operation on
wenzelm@31547
  1091
multiplicative monoids retains syntax "^" and is now defined generic
wenzelm@31547
  1092
in class power.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@31547
  1093
wenzelm@33842
  1094
* Relation composition "R O S" now has a more standard argument order:
wenzelm@33842
  1095
"R O S = {(x, z). EX y. (x, y) : R & (y, z) : S}".  INCOMPATIBILITY,
wenzelm@33842
  1096
rewrite propositions with "S O R" --> "R O S". Proofs may occasionally
wenzelm@33842
  1097
break, since the O_assoc rule was not rewritten like this.  Fix using
wenzelm@33842
  1098
O_assoc[symmetric].  The same applies to the curried version "R OO S".
wenzelm@32427
  1099
nipkow@33057
  1100
* Function "Inv" is renamed to "inv_into" and function "inv" is now an
wenzelm@33842
  1101
abbreviation for "inv_into UNIV".  Lemmas are renamed accordingly.
nipkow@32988
  1102
INCOMPATIBILITY.
nipkow@32988
  1103
haftmann@33860
  1104
* Most rules produced by inductive and datatype package have mandatory
haftmann@33860
  1105
prefixes.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
nipkow@31790
  1106
wenzelm@33842
  1107
* Changed "DERIV_intros" to a dynamic fact, which can be augmented by
wenzelm@33842
  1108
the attribute of the same name.  Each of the theorems in the list
wenzelm@33842
  1109
DERIV_intros assumes composition with an additional function and
wenzelm@33842
  1110
matches a variable to the derivative, which has to be solved by the
wenzelm@33842
  1111
Simplifier.  Hence (auto intro!: DERIV_intros) computes the derivative
wenzelm@33873
  1112
of most elementary terms.  Former Maclauren.DERIV_tac and
wenzelm@33873
  1113
Maclauren.deriv_tac should be replaced by (auto intro!: DERIV_intros).
wenzelm@33873
  1114
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@33860
  1115
haftmann@33860
  1116
* Code generator attributes follow the usual underscore convention:
haftmann@33860
  1117
    code_unfold     replaces    code unfold
haftmann@33860
  1118
    code_post       replaces    code post
haftmann@33860
  1119
    etc.
haftmann@33860
  1120
  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@31900
  1121
krauss@33471
  1122
* Renamed methods:
krauss@33471
  1123
    sizechange -> size_change
krauss@33471
  1124
    induct_scheme -> induction_schema
haftmann@33860
  1125
  INCOMPATIBILITY.
nipkow@33673
  1126
wenzelm@33843
  1127
* Discontinued abbreviation "arbitrary" of constant "undefined".
wenzelm@33843
  1128
INCOMPATIBILITY, use "undefined" directly.
wenzelm@33843
  1129
haftmann@33860
  1130
* Renamed theorems:
haftmann@33860
  1131
    Suc_eq_add_numeral_1 -> Suc_eq_plus1
haftmann@33860
  1132
    Suc_eq_add_numeral_1_left -> Suc_eq_plus1_left
haftmann@33860
  1133
    Suc_plus1 -> Suc_eq_plus1
haftmann@33860
  1134
    *anti_sym -> *antisym*
haftmann@33860
  1135
    vector_less_eq_def -> vector_le_def
haftmann@33860
  1136
  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@33860
  1137
haftmann@33860
  1138
* Added theorem List.map_map as [simp].  Removed List.map_compose.
haftmann@33860
  1139
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@33860
  1140
haftmann@33860
  1141
* Removed predicate "M hassize n" (<--> card M = n & finite M).

*** HOLCF ***
huffman@33825
  1146
wenzelm@33842
  1147
* Theory Representable defines a class "rep" of domains that are
wenzelm@33842
  1148
representable (via an ep-pair) in the universal domain type "udom".
huffman@33825
  1149
Instances are provided for all type constructors defined in HOLCF.
huffman@33825
  1150
huffman@33825
  1151
* The 'new_domain' command is a purely definitional version of the
huffman@33825
  1152
domain package, for representable domains.  Syntax is identical to the
huffman@33825
  1153
old domain package.  The 'new_domain' package also supports indirect
huffman@33825
  1154
recursion using previously-defined type constructors.  See
wenzelm@33842
  1155
src/HOLCF/ex/New_Domain.thy for examples.
wenzelm@33842
  1156
wenzelm@33842
  1157
* Method "fixrec_simp" unfolds one step of a fixrec-defined constant
huffman@33825
  1158
on the left-hand side of an equation, and then performs
huffman@33825
  1159
simplification.  Rewriting is done using rules declared with the
wenzelm@33842
  1160
"fixrec_simp" attribute.  The "fixrec_simp" method is intended as a
wenzelm@33842
  1161
replacement for "fixpat"; see src/HOLCF/ex/Fixrec_ex.thy for examples.
huffman@33825
  1162
huffman@33825
  1163
* The pattern-match compiler in 'fixrec' can now handle constructors
huffman@33825
  1164
with HOL function types.  Pattern-match combinators for the Pair
huffman@33825
  1165
constructor are pre-configured.
huffman@33825
  1166
huffman@33825
  1167
* The 'fixrec' package now produces better fixed-point induction rules
huffman@33825
  1168
for mutually-recursive definitions:  Induction rules have conclusions
huffman@33825
  1169
of the form "P foo bar" instead of "P <foo, bar>".
huffman@33825
  1170
huffman@33825
  1171
* The constant "sq_le" (with infix syntax "<<" or "\<sqsubseteq>") has
huffman@33825
  1172
been renamed to "below".  The name "below" now replaces "less" in many
wenzelm@33842
  1173
theorem names.  (Legacy theorem names using "less" are still supported
wenzelm@33842
  1174
as well.)
huffman@33825
  1175
huffman@33825
  1176
* The 'fixrec' package now supports "bottom patterns".  Bottom
huffman@33825
  1177
patterns can be used to generate strictness rules, or to make
huffman@33825
  1178
functions more strict (much like the bang-patterns supported by the
wenzelm@33873
  1179
Glasgow Haskell Compiler).  See src/HOLCF/ex/Fixrec_ex.thy for
wenzelm@33873
  1180
examples.

*** ML ***
wenzelm@31304
  1184
wenzelm@33843
  1185
* Support for Poly/ML 5.3.0, with improved reporting of compiler
wenzelm@33843
  1186
errors and run-time exceptions, including detailed source positions.
wenzelm@33843
  1187
wenzelm@33843
  1188
* Structure Name_Space (formerly NameSpace) now manages uniquely
wenzelm@33843
  1189
identified entries, with some additional information such as source
wenzelm@33843
  1190
position, logical grouping etc.
wenzelm@33843
  1191
wenzelm@33524
  1192
* Theory and context data is now introduced by the simplified and
wenzelm@33524
  1193
modernized functors Theory_Data, Proof_Data, Generic_Data.  Data needs
wenzelm@33524
  1194
to be pure, but the old TheoryDataFun for mutable data (with explicit
wenzelm@33524
  1195
copy operation) is still available for some time.
wenzelm@33524
  1196
wenzelm@32742
  1197
* Structure Synchronized (cf. src/Pure/Concurrent/synchronized.ML)
wenzelm@32742
  1198
provides a high-level programming interface to synchronized state
wenzelm@32742
  1199
variables with atomic update.  This works via pure function
wenzelm@32742
  1200
application within a critical section -- its runtime should be as
wenzelm@32742
  1201
short as possible; beware of deadlocks if critical code is nested,
wenzelm@32742
  1202
either directly or indirectly via other synchronized variables!
wenzelm@32742
  1203
wenzelm@32742
  1204
* Structure Unsynchronized (cf. src/Pure/ML-Systems/unsynchronized.ML)
wenzelm@32742
  1205
wraps raw ML references, explicitly indicating their non-thread-safe
wenzelm@32742
  1206
behaviour.  The Isar toplevel keeps this structure open, to
wenzelm@32742
  1207
accommodate Proof General as well as quick and dirty interactive
wenzelm@32742
  1208
experiments with references.
wenzelm@32742
  1209
wenzelm@32365
  1210
* PARALLEL_CHOICE and PARALLEL_GOALS provide basic support for
wenzelm@32365
  1211
parallel tactical reasoning.
wenzelm@32365
  1212
wenzelm@32427
  1213
* Tacticals Subgoal.FOCUS, Subgoal.FOCUS_PREMS, Subgoal.FOCUS_PARAMS
wenzelm@32427
  1214
are similar to SUBPROOF, but are slightly more flexible: only the
wenzelm@32427
  1215
specified parts of the subgoal are imported into the context, and the
wenzelm@32427
  1216
body tactic may introduce new subgoals and schematic variables.
wenzelm@32427
  1217
wenzelm@32427
  1218
* Old tactical METAHYPS, which does not observe the proof context, has
wenzelm@32427
  1219
been renamed to Old_Goals.METAHYPS and awaits deletion.  Use SUBPROOF
wenzelm@32427
  1220
or Subgoal.FOCUS etc.
wenzelm@32216
  1221
wenzelm@31971
  1222
* Renamed functor TableFun to Table, and GraphFun to Graph.  (Since
wenzelm@31971
  1223
functors have their own ML name space there is no point to mark them
wenzelm@31971
  1224
separately.)  Minor INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@31971
  1225
wenzelm@31901
  1226
* Renamed NamedThmsFun to Named_Thms.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@31901
  1227
wenzelm@33842
  1228
* Renamed several structures FooBar to Foo_Bar.  Occasional,
wenzelm@33842
  1229
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@33842
  1230
wenzelm@33843
  1231
* Operations of structure Skip_Proof no longer require quick_and_dirty
wenzelm@33843
  1232
mode, which avoids critical setmp.
wenzelm@33843
  1233
wenzelm@31306
  1234
* Eliminated old Attrib.add_attributes, Method.add_methods and related
wenzelm@33842
  1235
combinators for "args".  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to use simplified
wenzelm@31306
  1236
Attrib/Method.setup introduced in Isabelle2009.
wenzelm@31304
  1237
wenzelm@32151
  1238
* Proper context for simpset_of, claset_of, clasimpset_of.  May fall
wenzelm@32151
  1239
back on global_simpset_of, global_claset_of, global_clasimpset_of as
wenzelm@32151
  1240
last resort.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@32151
  1241
wenzelm@32092
  1242
* Display.pretty_thm now requires a proper context (cf. former
wenzelm@32092
  1243
ProofContext.pretty_thm).  May fall back on Display.pretty_thm_global
wenzelm@32092
  1244
or even Display.pretty_thm_without_context as last resort.
wenzelm@32092
  1245
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@32092
  1246
wenzelm@32433
  1247
* Discontinued Display.pretty_ctyp/cterm etc.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use
wenzelm@32433

  1254
* Further fine tuning of parallel proof checking, scales up to 8 cores
wenzelm@33842
  1255
(max. speedup factor 5.0).  See also Goal.parallel_proofs in ML and

  1259
also the system manual.
wenzelm@32326
  1260
wenzelm@32326
  1261
* The isabelle makeall tool now operates on all components with
wenzelm@32326
  1262
IsaMakefile, not just hardwired "logics".
wenzelm@32326
  1263
wenzelm@33842
  1264
* Removed "compress" option from isabelle-process and isabelle usedir;
wenzelm@33842

  1279
wenzelm@28504
  1280
* Simplified main Isabelle executables, with less surprises on
wenzelm@28504
  1281
case-insensitive file-systems (such as Mac OS).
wenzelm@28504
  1282
wenzelm@28504
  1283
  - The main Isabelle tool wrapper is now called "isabelle" instead of
wenzelm@28504
  1284
    "isatool."
wenzelm@28504
  1285
wenzelm@28504
  1286
  - The former "isabelle" alias for "isabelle-process" has been
wenzelm@28504
  1287
    removed (should rarely occur to regular users).
wenzelm@28504
  1288
wenzelm@28915
  1289
  - The former "isabelle-interface" and its alias "Isabelle" have been
wenzelm@28915
  1290
    removed (interfaces are now regular Isabelle tools).
wenzelm@28504
  1291
wenzelm@28504
  1292
Within scripts and make files, the Isabelle environment variables
wenzelm@28504
  1293
ISABELLE_TOOL and ISABELLE_PROCESS replace old ISATOOL and ISABELLE,
wenzelm@28504
  1294
respectively.  (The latter are still available as legacy feature.)
wenzelm@28504
  1295
wenzelm@28915
  1296
The old isabelle-interface wrapper could react in confusing ways if
wenzelm@28915
  1297
the interface was uninstalled or changed otherwise.  Individual
wenzelm@28915
  1298
interface tool configuration is now more explicit, see also the
wenzelm@28915
  1299
Isabelle system manual.  In particular, Proof General is now available
wenzelm@28915
  1300
via "isabelle emacs".
wenzelm@28504
  1301
wenzelm@28504
  1302
INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt derivative scripts.  Users may need to
wenzelm@28504
  1303
purge installed copies of Isabelle executables and re-run "isabelle
wenzelm@28504
  1304
install -p ...", or use symlinks.
wenzelm@28504
  1305
wenzelm@28914
  1306
* The default for ISABELLE_HOME_USER is now ~/.isabelle instead of the
wenzelm@30845
  1307
old ~/isabelle, which was slightly non-standard and apt to cause
wenzelm@30845
  1308
surprises on case-insensitive file-systems (such as Mac OS).
wenzelm@28914
  1309
wenzelm@28914
  1310
INCOMPATIBILITY, need to move existing ~/isabelle/etc,
wenzelm@28914
  1311
~/isabelle/heaps, ~/isabelle/browser_info to the new place.  Special
wenzelm@28914
  1312
care is required when using older releases of Isabelle.  Note that

ISABELLE_HOME_USER can be changed in Isabelle/etc/settings of any

Isabelle distribution, in order to use the new ~/.isabelle uniformly.
wenzelm@28914

wenzelm@29161
  1316
* Proofs of fully specified statements are run in parallel on
wenzelm@30845
  1317
multi-core systems.  A speedup factor of 2.5 to 3.2 can be expected on
wenzelm@30845
  1318
a regular 4-core machine, if the initial heap space is made reasonably
wenzelm@30845
  1319
large (cf. Poly/ML option -H).  (Requires Poly/ML 5.2.1 or later.)
wenzelm@30845
  1320
wenzelm@30845
  1321
* The main reference manuals ("isar-ref", "implementation", and
wenzelm@30845
  1322
"system") have been updated and extended.  Formally checked references
wenzelm@30845
  1323
as hyperlinks are now available uniformly.

*** Pure ***
wenzelm@27599
  1327
wenzelm@30845
  1328
* Complete re-implementation of locales.  INCOMPATIBILITY in several
wenzelm@30845
  1329
respects.  The most important changes are listed below.  See the
wenzelm@30845
  1330
Tutorial on Locales ("locales" manual) for details.
ballarin@29253
  1331
ballarin@29253
  1332
- In locale expressions, instantiation replaces renaming.  Parameters
ballarin@29253
  1333
must be declared in a for clause.  To aid compatibility with previous
ballarin@29253
  1334
parameter inheritance, in locale declarations, parameters that are not
ballarin@29253
  1335
'touched' (instantiation position "_" or omitted) are implicitly added
ballarin@29253
  1336
with their syntax at the beginning of the for clause.
ballarin@29253
  1337
ballarin@29253
  1338
- Syntax from abbreviations and definitions in locales is available in
ballarin@29253
  1339
locale expressions and context elements.  The latter is particularly
ballarin@29253
  1340
useful in locale declarations.
ballarin@29253
  1341
ballarin@29253
  1342
- More flexible mechanisms to qualify names generated by locale
ballarin@29253
  1343
expressions.  Qualifiers (prefixes) may be specified in locale
wenzelm@30728
  1344
expressions, and can be marked as mandatory (syntax: "name!:") or
wenzelm@30728
  1345
optional (syntax "name?:").  The default depends for plain "name:"
wenzelm@30728
  1346
depends on the situation where a locale expression is used: in
wenzelm@30728
  1347
commands 'locale' and 'sublocale' prefixes are optional, in
wenzelm@30845
  1348
'interpretation' and 'interpret' prefixes are mandatory.  The old
wenzelm@30728
  1349
implicit qualifiers derived from the parameter names of a locale are
wenzelm@30728
  1350
no longer generated.
wenzelm@30106
  1351
wenzelm@30845
  1352
- Command "sublocale l < e" replaces "interpretation l < e".  The
wenzelm@30106
  1353
instantiation clause in "interpretation" and "interpret" (square
wenzelm@30106
  1354
brackets) is no longer available.  Use locale expressions.
ballarin@29253
  1355
wenzelm@30845
  1356
- When converting proof scripts, mandatory qualifiers in
wenzelm@30728
  1357
'interpretation' and 'interpret' should be retained by default, even
wenzelm@30845
  1358
if this is an INCOMPATIBILITY compared to former behavior.  In the
wenzelm@30845
  1359
worst case, use the "name?:" form for non-mandatory ones.  Qualifiers
wenzelm@30845
  1360
in locale expressions range over a single locale instance only.
wenzelm@30845
  1361
wenzelm@30845
  1362
- Dropped locale element "includes".  This is a major INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
  1363
In existing theorem specifications replace the includes element by the
wenzelm@30845
  1364
respective context elements of the included locale, omitting those
wenzelm@30845
  1365
that are already present in the theorem specification.  Multiple
wenzelm@30845
  1366
assume elements of a locale should be replaced by a single one
wenzelm@30845
  1367
involving the locale predicate.  In the proof body, declarations (most
wenzelm@30845
  1368
notably theorems) may be regained by interpreting the respective
wenzelm@30845
  1369
locales in the proof context as required (command "interpret").
wenzelm@30845
  1370
wenzelm@30845
  1371
If using "includes" in replacement of a target solely because the
wenzelm@30845
  1372
parameter types in the theorem are not as general as in the target,
wenzelm@30845
  1373
consider declaring a new locale with additional type constraints on
wenzelm@30845
  1374
the parameters (context element "constrains").
wenzelm@30845
  1375
wenzelm@30845
  1376
- Discontinued "locale (open)".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
  1377
wenzelm@30845
  1378
- Locale interpretation commands no longer attempt to simplify goal.
wenzelm@30845
  1379
INCOMPATIBILITY: in rare situations the generated goal differs.  Use
wenzelm@30845
  1380
methods intro_locales and unfold_locales to clarify.
wenzelm@30845
  1381
wenzelm@30845
  1382
- Locale interpretation commands no longer accept interpretation
wenzelm@30845
  1383
attributes.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
  1384
wenzelm@30845
  1385
* Class declaration: so-called "base sort" must not be given in import
wenzelm@30845
  1386
list any longer, but is inferred from the specification.  Particularly
wenzelm@30845
  1387
in HOL, write
wenzelm@30845
  1388
wenzelm@30845
  1389
    class foo = ...
wenzelm@30845
  1390
wenzelm@30845
  1391
instead of
wenzelm@30845
  1392
wenzelm@30845
  1393
    class foo = type + ...
wenzelm@30845
  1394
wenzelm@30845
  1395
* Class target: global versions of theorems stemming do not carry a
wenzelm@30845
  1396
parameter prefix any longer.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
  1397
wenzelm@30845
  1398
* Class 'instance' command no longer accepts attached definitions.
wenzelm@30845
  1399
INCOMPATIBILITY, use proper 'instantiation' target instead.
wenzelm@30845
  1400
wenzelm@30845
  1401
* Recovered hiding of consts, which was accidentally broken in
wenzelm@30845
  1402
Isabelle2007.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY, ``hide const c'' really
wenzelm@30845
  1403
makes c inaccessible; consider using ``hide (open) const c'' instead.
wenzelm@30845
  1404
wenzelm@30845
  1405
* Slightly more coherent Pure syntax, with updated documentation in
wenzelm@30845
  1406
isar-ref manual.  Removed locales meta_term_syntax and
wenzelm@30845
  1407
meta_conjunction_syntax: TERM and &&& (formerly &&) are now permanent,
wenzelm@30845
  1408
INCOMPATIBILITY in rare situations.  Note that &&& should not be used
wenzelm@30845
  1409
directly in regular applications.
wenzelm@30845
  1410
wenzelm@30845
  1411
* There is a new syntactic category "float_const" for signed decimal
wenzelm@30845
  1412
fractions (e.g. 123.45 or -123.45).
wenzelm@30845
  1413
wenzelm@30845
  1414
* Removed exotic 'token_translation' command.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use ML
wenzelm@30845
  1415
interface with 'setup' command instead.
wenzelm@30845
  1416
wenzelm@30845
  1417
* Command 'local_setup' is similar to 'setup', but operates on a local
wenzelm@30845
  1418
theory context.
haftmann@27104
  1419
wenzelm@28114
  1420
* The 'axiomatization' command now only works within a global theory
wenzelm@28114
  1421
context.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@28114
  1422
wenzelm@30845
  1423
* Goal-directed proof now enforces strict proof irrelevance wrt. sort
wenzelm@30845
  1424
hypotheses.  Sorts required in the course of reasoning need to be
wenzelm@30845
  1425
covered by the constraints in the initial statement, completed by the
wenzelm@30845
  1426
type instance information of the background theory.  Non-trivial sort
wenzelm@30845
  1427
hypotheses, which rarely occur in practice, may be specified via
wenzelm@30845
  1428
vacuous propositions of the form SORT_CONSTRAINT('a::c).  For example:
wenzelm@30845
  1429
wenzelm@30845
  1430
  lemma assumes "SORT_CONSTRAINT('a::empty)" shows False ...
wenzelm@30845
  1431
wenzelm@30845
  1432
The result contains an implicit sort hypotheses as before --
wenzelm@30845
  1433
SORT_CONSTRAINT premises are eliminated as part of the canonical rule
wenzelm@30845
  1434
normalization.
wenzelm@30845
  1435
wenzelm@30845
  1436
* Generalized Isar history, with support for linear undo, direct state
wenzelm@30845
  1437
addressing etc.
wenzelm@30845
  1438
wenzelm@30845
  1439
* Changed defaults for unify configuration options:
wenzelm@30845
  1440
wenzelm@30845
  1441
  unify_trace_bound = 50 (formerly 25)
wenzelm@30845
  1442
  unify_search_bound = 60 (formerly 30)
wenzelm@30845
  1443
wenzelm@30845
  1444
* Different bookkeeping for code equations (INCOMPATIBILITY):
wenzelm@30845
  1445
wenzelm@30845
  1446
  a) On theory merge, the last set of code equations for a particular
wenzelm@30845
  1447
     constant is taken (in accordance with the policy applied by other
wenzelm@30845
  1448
     parts of the code generator framework).
wenzelm@30845
  1449
wenzelm@30845
  1450
  b) Code equations stemming from explicit declarations (e.g. code
wenzelm@30845
  1451
     attribute) gain priority over default code equations stemming
wenzelm@30845
  1452
     from definition, primrec, fun etc.
wenzelm@30845
  1453
wenzelm@30845
  1454
* Keyword 'code_exception' now named 'code_abort'.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
  1455
haftmann@30965
  1456
* Unified theorem tables for both code generators.  Thus [code
wenzelm@30845
  1457
func] has disappeared and only [code] remains.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30577
  1458
wenzelm@30577
  1459
* Command 'find_consts' searches for constants based on type and name
wenzelm@30577
  1460
patterns, e.g.
kleing@29883
  1461
kleing@29883
  1462
    find_consts "_ => bool"
kleing@29883
  1463
wenzelm@30106
  1464
By default, matching is against subtypes, but it may be restricted to
wenzelm@30728
  1465
the whole type.  Searching by name is possible.  Multiple queries are
wenzelm@30106
  1466
conjunctive and queries may be negated by prefixing them with a
wenzelm@30106
  1467
hyphen:
kleing@29883
  1468
kleing@29883
  1469
    find_consts strict: "_ => bool" name: "Int" -"int => int"
kleing@29861
  1470
wenzelm@30845
  1471
* New 'find_theorems' criterion "solves" matches theorems that
wenzelm@30845
  1472
directly solve the current goal (modulo higher-order unification).
wenzelm@30845
  1473
wenzelm@30845
  1474
* Auto solve feature for main theorem statements: whenever a new goal
wenzelm@30845
  1475
is stated, "find_theorems solves" is called; any theorems that could
wenzelm@30845
  1476
solve the lemma directly are listed as part of the goal state.
wenzelm@30845
  1477
Cf. associated options in Proof General Isabelle settings menu,
wenzelm@30845
  1478
enabled by default, with reasonable timeout for pathological cases of
wenzelm@30845
  1479
higher-order unification.

*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@27381
  1483
wenzelm@27381
  1484
* Antiquotation @{lemma} now imitates a regular terminal proof,
wenzelm@27392
  1485
demanding keyword 'by' and supporting the full method expression
wenzelm@27519
  1486
syntax just like the Isar command 'by'.

*** HOL ***
haftmann@27104
  1490
wenzelm@30845
  1491
* Integrated main parts of former image HOL-Complex with HOL.  Entry
wenzelm@30845
  1492
points Main and Complex_Main remain as before.
wenzelm@30845
  1493
wenzelm@30845
  1494
* Logic image HOL-Plain provides a minimal HOL with the most important
wenzelm@30845
  1495
tools available (inductive, datatype, primrec, ...).  This facilitates
wenzelm@30845
  1496
experimentation and tool development.  Note that user applications
wenzelm@30845
  1497
(and library theories) should never refer to anything below theory
wenzelm@30845
  1498
Main, as before.
wenzelm@30845
  1499
wenzelm@30845
  1500
* Logic image HOL-Main stops at theory Main, and thus facilitates
wenzelm@30845
  1501
experimentation due to shorter build times.
wenzelm@30845
  1502
wenzelm@30845
  1503
* Logic image HOL-NSA contains theories of nonstandard analysis which
wenzelm@30845
  1504
were previously part of former HOL-Complex.  Entry point Hyperreal
wenzelm@30845
  1505
remains valid, but theories formerly using Complex_Main should now use
wenzelm@30845
  1506
new entry point Hypercomplex.
wenzelm@30845
  1507
wenzelm@30845
  1508
* Generic ATP manager for Sledgehammer, based on ML threads instead of
wenzelm@30845
  1509
Posix processes.  Avoids potentially expensive forking of the ML
wenzelm@30845
  1510
process.  New thread-based implementation also works on non-Unix
wenzelm@30845
  1511
platforms (Cygwin).  Provers are no longer hardwired, but defined
wenzelm@30845
  1512
within the theory via plain ML wrapper functions.  Basic Sledgehammer
wenzelm@30845
  1513
commands are covered in the isar-ref manual.
wenzelm@30845
  1514
wenzelm@30845
  1515
* Wrapper scripts for remote SystemOnTPTP service allows to use
wenzelm@30845
  1516
sledgehammer without local ATP installation (Vampire etc.). Other
wenzelm@30845
  1517
provers may be included via suitable ML wrappers, see also
wenzelm@30845
  1518
src/HOL/ATP_Linkup.thy.
wenzelm@30845
  1519
wenzelm@30845
  1520
* ATP selection (E/Vampire/Spass) is now via Proof General's settings
wenzelm@30845
  1521
menu.
wenzelm@30845
  1522
wenzelm@30845
  1523
* The metis method no longer fails because the theorem is too trivial
wenzelm@30845
  1524
(contains the empty clause).
wenzelm@30845
  1525
wenzelm@30845
  1526
* The metis method now fails in the usual manner, rather than raising
wenzelm@30845
  1527
an exception, if it determines that it cannot prove the theorem.
wenzelm@30845
  1528
wenzelm@30845
  1529
* Method "coherent" implements a prover for coherent logic (see also
wenzelm@30845
  1530
src/Tools/coherent.ML).
wenzelm@30845
  1531
wenzelm@30845
  1532
* Constants "undefined" and "default" replace "arbitrary".  Usually
wenzelm@30845
  1533
"undefined" is the right choice to replace "arbitrary", though
wenzelm@30845
  1534
logically there is no difference.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
  1535
wenzelm@30845
  1536
* Command "value" now integrates different evaluation mechanisms.  The
wenzelm@30845
  1537
result of the first successful evaluation mechanism is printed.  In
wenzelm@30845
  1538
square brackets a particular named evaluation mechanisms may be
wenzelm@30845
  1539
specified (currently, [SML], [code] or [nbe]).  See further
wenzelm@30845
  1540
src/HOL/ex/Eval_Examples.thy.
wenzelm@30845
  1541
wenzelm@30845
  1542
* Normalization by evaluation now allows non-leftlinear equations.
wenzelm@30845
  1543
Declare with attribute [code nbe].
wenzelm@30845
  1544
wenzelm@30845
  1545
* Methods "case_tac" and "induct_tac" now refer to the very same rules
wenzelm@30845
  1546
as the structured Isar versions "cases" and "induct", cf. the
wenzelm@30845
  1547
corresponding "cases" and "induct" attributes.  Mutual induction rules
wenzelm@30845
  1548
are now presented as a list of individual projections
wenzelm@30845
  1549
(e.g. foo_bar.inducts for types foo and bar); the old format with
wenzelm@30845
  1550
explicit HOL conjunction is no longer supported.  INCOMPATIBILITY, in
wenzelm@30845
  1551
rare situations a different rule is selected --- notably nested tuple
wenzelm@30845
  1552
elimination instead of former prod.exhaust: use explicit (case_tac t
wenzelm@30845
  1553
rule: prod.exhaust) here.
wenzelm@30845
  1554
wenzelm@30845
  1555
* Attributes "cases", "induct", "coinduct" support "del" option.
wenzelm@30845
  1556
wenzelm@30845
  1557
* Removed fact "case_split_thm", which duplicates "case_split".
wenzelm@30845
  1558
wenzelm@30845
  1559
* The option datatype has been moved to a new theory Option.  Renamed
wenzelm@30845
  1560
option_map to Option.map, and o2s to Option.set, INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
  1561
wenzelm@30845
  1562
* New predicate "strict_mono" classifies strict functions on partial
wenzelm@30845
  1563
orders.  With strict functions on linear orders, reasoning about
wenzelm@30845
  1564
(in)equalities is facilitated by theorems "strict_mono_eq",
wenzelm@30845
  1565
"strict_mono_less_eq" and "strict_mono_less".
wenzelm@30845
  1566
wenzelm@30845
  1567
* Some set operations are now proper qualified constants with
wenzelm@30845
  1568
authentic syntax.  INCOMPATIBILITY:

* Class complete_lattice with operations Inf, Sup, INFI, SUPR now in
wenzelm@30845
  1580
theory Set.
wenzelm@30845
  1581
wenzelm@30845
  1582
* Auxiliary class "itself" has disappeared -- classes without any
wenzelm@30845
  1583
parameter are treated as expected by the 'class' command.
haftmann@29797
  1584
haftmann@29823
  1585
* Leibnitz's Series for Pi and the arcus tangens and logarithm series.
haftmann@29823
  1586
wenzelm@30845
  1587
* Common decision procedures (Cooper, MIR, Ferrack, Approximation,
wenzelm@30845
  1588
Dense_Linear_Order) are now in directory HOL/Decision_Procs.

* Theory src/HOL/Decision_Procs/Approximation provides the new proof
wenzelm@30845
  1591
method "approximation".  It proves formulas on real values by using
wenzelm@30845
  1592
interval arithmetic.  In the formulas are also the transcendental
wenzelm@30845
  1593
functions sin, cos, tan, atan, ln, exp and the constant pi are
wenzelm@30845
  1594
allowed. For examples see

  1688
induction rule "less_induct" as assumption.  For instantiation of
wenzelm@30845
  1689
"wellorder" by means of predicate "wf", use rule wf_wellorderI.
wenzelm@30845
  1690
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
  1691
wenzelm@30845
  1692
* Theory Orderings: added class "preorder" as superclass of "order".
wenzelm@27793
  1693
INCOMPATIBILITY: Instantiation proofs for order, linorder
wenzelm@27793
  1694
etc. slightly changed.  Some theorems named order_class.* now named
wenzelm@27793
  1695
preorder_class.*.
wenzelm@27793
  1696
wenzelm@30845
  1697
* Theory Relation: renamed "refl" to "refl_on", "reflexive" to "refl,
wenzelm@30845
  1698
"diag" to "Id_on".
wenzelm@30845
  1699
wenzelm@30845
  1700

wenzelm@30845
  1701
nipkow@28855
  1702
  ('a => 'b => 'b) => 'b => 'a set => 'b
wenzelm@30845
  1703
wenzelm@30845
  1704
Occasionally this is more convenient than the old fold combinator
wenzelm@30845
  1705
which is now defined in terms of the new one and renamed to
wenzelm@30845
  1706
fold_image.
wenzelm@30845
  1707
wenzelm@30845
  1708
* Theories Ring_and_Field and OrderedGroup: The lemmas "group_simps"
wenzelm@30845
  1709
and "ring_simps" have been replaced by "algebra_simps" (which can be
wenzelm@30845
  1710
extended with further lemmas!).  At the moment both still exist but
wenzelm@30845
  1711
the former will disappear at some point.
wenzelm@30845
  1712
wenzelm@30845
  1713
* Theory Power: Lemma power_Suc is now declared as a simp rule in
wenzelm@30845
  1714
class recpower.  Type-specific simp rules for various recpower types
wenzelm@30845
  1715
have been removed.  INCOMPATIBILITY, rename old lemmas as follows:

  1726
* Theories Ring_and_Field and Divides: Definition of "op dvd" has been
wenzelm@27793
  1727
moved to separate class dvd in Ring_and_Field; a couple of lemmas on
wenzelm@27793
  1728
dvd has been generalized to class comm_semiring_1.  Likewise a bunch
wenzelm@27793
  1729
of lemmas from Divides has been generalized from nat to class
wenzelm@27793
  1730
semiring_div.  INCOMPATIBILITY.  This involves the following theorem

wenzelm@30845
  1805
wenzelm@30845

wenzelm@29161
  1950
particularly convenient to organize independent functional
wenzelm@29161

  1953
delicate details of mutexes and condition variables.  (Requires

* ML bindings produced via Isar commands are stored within the Isar
wenzelm@30845

become thread-safe and work with undo as expected (concerning

wenzelm@30395
  1993
abstract type binding (see structure Binding), which supports precise
wenzelm@30845
  1994
qualification by packages and local theory targets, as well as proper
wenzelm@30845
  1995
tracking of source positions.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to wrap old

berghofe@26681
  2105
There are three ways of invoking it:

  2106
berghofe@26681
  2107
(1) unused_thms
berghofe@26681
  2108
     Only finds unused theorems in the current theory.
berghofe@26681
  2109
berghofe@26681
  2110
(2) unused_thms thy_1 ... thy_n -
berghofe@26681

     Finds unused theorems in the current theory and all of its ancestors,
berghofe@26681
  2112
     excluding the theories thy_1 ... thy_n and all of their ancestors.
berghofe@26681
  2113
berghofe@26681
  2114
(3) unused_thms thy_1 ... thy_n - thy'_1 ... thy'_m
berghofe@26681
  2115
     Finds unused theorems in the theories thy'_1 ... thy'_m and all of
berghofe@26681
  2116
     their ancestors, excluding the theories thy_1 ... thy_n and all of
berghofe@26681
  2117
     their ancestors.
berghofe@26681
  2118
wenzelm@26718
  2119
In order to increase the readability of the list produced by
wenzelm@26718
  2120
unused_thms, theorems that have been created by a particular instance
wenzelm@26874
  2121
of a theory command such as 'inductive' or 'function' are considered
wenzelm@26874
  2122
to belong to the same "group", meaning that if at least one theorem in
wenzelm@26718
  2123
this group is used, the other theorems in the same group are no longer
wenzelm@26718
  2124
reported as unused.  Moreover, if all theorems in the group are
wenzelm@26718
  2125
unused, only one theorem in the group is displayed.
wenzelm@26718
  2126
wenzelm@26718
  2127
Note that proof objects have to be switched on in order for
wenzelm@26718
  2128
unused_thms to work properly (i.e. !proofs must be >= 1, which is
wenzelm@26874

usually the case when using Proof General with the default settings).

* More flexible generation of measure functions for termination
wenzelm@27067
  2221
proofs: Measure functions can be declared by proving a rule of the
wenzelm@27067
  2222
form "is_measure f" and giving it the [measure_function] attribute.
wenzelm@27067
  2223
The "is_measure" predicate is logically meaningless (always true), and
wenzelm@27067
  2224
just guides the heuristic.  To find suitable measure functions, the
wenzelm@27067
  2225
termination prover sets up the goal "is_measure ?f" of the appropriate
wenzelm@27067
  2226
type and generates all solutions by prolog-style backwards proof using
wenzelm@27067
  2227
the declared rules.
wenzelm@27067
  2228
wenzelm@27067
  2229
This setup also deals with rules like 
wenzelm@27067
  2230
wenzelm@27067
  2231
  "is_measure f ==> is_measure (list_size f)"
wenzelm@27067
  2232
wenzelm@27067

  2372
wenzelm@26180
  2373
* Class semiring_div provides basic abstract properties of semirings
haftmann@25942
  2374
with division and modulo operations.  Subsumes former class dvd_mod.
haftmann@25942
  2375
wenzelm@26180

wenzelm@26180
  2381
wenzelm@26180

  2395
schirmer@25705
  2396
* Records. Removed K_record, and replaced it by pure lambda term
wenzelm@25726
  2397
%x. c. The simplifier setup is now more robust against eta expansion.
schirmer@25705
  2398
INCOMPATIBILITY: in cases explicitly referring to K_record.
wenzelm@25464

*** ML ***
wenzelm@25737
  2428
wenzelm@27067
  2429
* ML within Isar: antiquotation @{const name} or @{const
wenzelm@27067
  2430
name(typargs)} produces statically-checked Const term.
wenzelm@27067
  2431
wenzelm@26401
  2432
* Functor NamedThmsFun: data is available to the user as dynamic fact
wenzelm@26724
  2433
(of the same name).  Removed obsolete print command.
wenzelm@26401
  2434
wenzelm@27067
  2435
* Removed obsolete "use_legacy_bindings" function.
wenzelm@26188
  2436
wenzelm@25737
  2437
* The ``print mode'' is now a thread-local value derived from a global
wenzelm@25737
  2438
template (the former print_mode reference), thus access becomes
wenzelm@25737
  2439
non-critical.  The global print_mode reference is for session
wenzelm@25737
  2440
management only; user-code should use print_mode_value,
wenzelm@25737
  2441
print_mode_active, PrintMode.setmp etc.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@25737
  2442
wenzelm@26874
  2443
* Functions system/system_out provide a robust way to invoke external
wenzelm@29161
  2444
shell commands, with propagation of interrupts (requires Poly/ML
wenzelm@29161
  2445
5.2.1).  Do not use OS.Process.system etc. from the basis library!

"javapath" function defined in Isabelle process environment.
wenzelm@25651
  2459
wenzelm@27067

* YXML notation provides a simple and efficient alternative to
wenzelm@27067
  2461
standard XML transfer syntax.  See src/Pure/General/yxml.ML and
wenzelm@27067
  2462
isatool yxml as described in the Isabelle system manual.
wenzelm@25651
  2463
wenzelm@25652
  2464
* JVM class isabelle.IsabelleProcess (located in Isabelle/lib/classes)
wenzelm@25651
  2465
provides general wrapper for managing an Isabelle process in a robust
wenzelm@25651
  2466
fashion, with ``cooked'' output from stdin/stderr.
wenzelm@25651

  2469
based on Isabelle/JVM process wrapper (see Isabelle/lib/classes).
wenzelm@25855
  2470
wenzelm@27067
  2471
* Removed obsolete THIS_IS_ISABELLE_BUILD feature.  NB: the documented
wenzelm@27067
  2472
way of changing the user's settings is via
wenzelm@27067
  2473
ISABELLE_HOME_USER/etc/settings, which is a fully featured bash

  2474
script.
wenzelm@27067
  2475
wenzelm@27067
  2476
* Multithreading.max_threads := 0 refers to the number of actual CPU
wenzelm@27067
  2477
cores of the underlying machine, which is a good starting point for
wenzelm@27067
  2478
optimal performance tuning.  The corresponding usedir option -M allows
wenzelm@27067
  2479
"max" as an alias for "0".  WARNING: does not work on certain versions
wenzelm@27067
  2480
of Mac OS (with Poly/ML 5.1).
wenzelm@27067
  2481
wenzelm@27067
  2482
* isabelle-process: non-ML sessions are run with "nice", to reduce the

wenzelm@17754
  2491
*** General ***
wenzelm@17754
  2492
wenzelm@22826
  2493
* More uniform information about legacy features, notably a
wenzelm@22826
  2494
warning/error of "Legacy feature: ...", depending on the state of the
wenzelm@23367
  2495
tolerate_legacy_features flag (default true). FUTURE INCOMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@23367
  2496
legacy features will disappear eventually.
wenzelm@22826
  2497
wenzelm@17918
  2498
* Theory syntax: the header format ``theory A = B + C:'' has been
wenzelm@17918
  2499
discontinued in favour of ``theory A imports B C begin''.  Use isatool
wenzelm@17918
  2500
fixheaders to convert existing theory files.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17918
  2501
wenzelm@17918
  2502
* Theory syntax: the old non-Isar theory file format has been
wenzelm@17918
  2503
discontinued altogether.  Note that ML proof scripts may still be used
wenzelm@17918
  2504
with Isar theories; migration is usually quite simple with the ML
wenzelm@17918
  2505
function use_legacy_bindings.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17918
  2506
wenzelm@22871
  2507
* Theory syntax: some popular names (e.g. 'class', 'declaration',
wenzelm@22871
  2508
'fun', 'help', 'if') are now keywords.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use double
wenzelm@22871
  2509
quotes.
wenzelm@19814
  2510
wenzelm@23888
  2511
* Theory loader: be more serious about observing the static theory
wenzelm@23888
  2512
header specifications (including optional directories), but not the
wenzelm@24172
  2513
accidental file locations of previously successful loads.  The strict
wenzelm@24172
  2514
update policy of former update_thy is now already performed by
wenzelm@24172
  2515
use_thy, so the former has been removed; use_thys updates several
wenzelm@24172
  2516
theories simultaneously, just as 'imports' within a theory header
wenzelm@24172
  2517
specification, but without merging the results.  Potential
wenzelm@24172
  2518
INCOMPATIBILITY: may need to refine theory headers and commands
wenzelm@24172
  2519
ROOT.ML which depend on load order.
wenzelm@23888
  2520
wenzelm@23888
  2521
* Theory loader: optional support for content-based file
wenzelm@23888
  2522
identification, instead of the traditional scheme of full physical
wenzelm@23889
  2523
path plus date stamp; configured by the ISABELLE_FILE_IDENT setting
wenzelm@23888
  2524
(cf. the system manual).  The new scheme allows to work with
wenzelm@23888
  2525
non-finished theories in persistent session images, such that source
wenzelm@23888
  2526
files may be moved later on without requiring reloads.
wenzelm@23888
  2527
wenzelm@24187
  2528
* Theory loader: old-style ML proof scripts being *attached* to a thy
wenzelm@24187
  2529
file (with the same base name as the theory) are considered a legacy
wenzelm@24800
  2530
feature, which will disappear eventually. Even now, the theory loader
wenzelm@24800
  2531
no longer maintains dependencies on such files.
wenzelm@24800
  2532
wenzelm@24800
  2533
* Syntax: the scope for resolving ambiguities via type-inference is
wenzelm@24800
  2534
now limited to individual terms, instead of whole simultaneous
wenzelm@24234
  2535
specifications as before. This greatly reduces the complexity of the
wenzelm@24234
  2536
syntax module and improves flexibility by separating parsing and
wenzelm@24234
  2537
type-checking. INCOMPATIBILITY: additional type-constraints (explicit
wenzelm@24234
  2538
'fixes' etc.) are required in rare situations.
wenzelm@24234
  2539
wenzelm@25034
  2540
* Syntax: constants introduced by new-style packages ('definition',
wenzelm@25034
  2541
'abbreviation' etc.) are passed through the syntax module in
wenzelm@25034
  2542
``authentic mode''. This means that associated mixfix annotations
wenzelm@25034
  2543
really stick to such constants, independently of potential name space
wenzelm@25034
  2544
ambiguities introduced later on. INCOMPATIBILITY: constants in parse
wenzelm@25034
  2545
trees are represented slightly differently, may need to adapt syntax
wenzelm@25034
  2546
translations accordingly. Use CONST marker in 'translations' and
wenzelm@25034
  2547
@{const_syntax} antiquotation in 'parse_translation' etc.
wenzelm@25034
  2548
wenzelm@17981
  2549
* Legacy goal package: reduced interface to the bare minimum required
wenzelm@17981
  2550
to keep existing proof scripts running.  Most other user-level
wenzelm@17981
  2551
functions are now part of the OldGoals structure, which is *not* open
wenzelm@17981
  2552
by default (consider isatool expandshort before open OldGoals).
wenzelm@17981
  2553
Removed top_sg, prin, printyp, pprint_term/typ altogether, because
wenzelm@17981
  2554
these tend to cause confusion about the actual goal (!) context being
wenzelm@17981
  2555
used here, which is not necessarily the same as the_context().
wenzelm@17918
  2556
wenzelm@23379
  2557
* Command 'find_theorems': supports "*" wild-card in "name:"
wenzelm@23379
  2558
criterion; "with_dups" option.  Certain ProofGeneral versions might
wenzelm@23379
  2559
support a specific search form (see ProofGeneral/CHANGES).
webertj@22965
  2560
wenzelm@20370
  2561
* The ``prems limit'' option (cf. ProofContext.prems_limit) is now -1
wenzelm@20370
  2562
by default, which means that "prems" (and also "fixed variables") are
wenzelm@20370
  2563
suppressed from proof state output.  Note that the ProofGeneral
wenzelm@20370
  2564
settings mechanism allows to change and save options persistently, but
wenzelm@20370
  2565
older versions of Isabelle will fail to start up if a negative prems
wenzelm@20370
  2566
limit is imposed.
wenzelm@20370
  2567
wenzelm@21308
  2568
* Local theory targets may be specified by non-nested blocks of
wenzelm@21308
  2569
``context/locale/class ... begin'' followed by ``end''.  The body may
wenzelm@21308
  2570
contain definitions, theorems etc., including any derived mechanism
wenzelm@21308
  2571
that has been implemented on top of these primitives.  This concept
wenzelm@21308
  2572
generalizes the existing ``theorem (in ...)'' towards more versatility
wenzelm@21308
  2573
and scalability.
wenzelm@21308
  2574
wenzelm@21960
  2575
* Proof General interface: proper undo of final 'end' command;
wenzelm@21960
  2576
discontinued Isabelle/classic mode (ML proof scripts).

*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@17865
  2580
wenzelm@21717
  2581
* Added antiquotation @{theory name} which prints the given name,
wenzelm@21717
  2582
after checking that it refers to a valid ancestor theory in the
wenzelm@21717
  2583
current context.
haftmann@21339
  2584
wenzelm@17869
  2585
* Added antiquotations @{ML_type text} and @{ML_struct text} which
wenzelm@17869
  2586
check the given source text as ML type/structure, printing verbatim.
wenzelm@17865
  2587
wenzelm@21717
  2588
* Added antiquotation @{abbrev "c args"} which prints the abbreviation
wenzelm@21717
  2589
"c args == rhs" given in the current context.  (Any number of
wenzelm@21735
  2590
arguments may be given on the LHS.)

wenzelm@24800
  2595
* The 'class' package offers a combination of axclass and locale to
wenzelm@25129
  2596
achieve Haskell-like type classes in Isabelle.  Definitions and
wenzelm@25129
  2597
theorems within a class context produce both relative results (with
wenzelm@25129
  2598
implicit parameters according to the locale context), and polymorphic
wenzelm@25129
  2599
constants with qualified polymorphism (according to the class
wenzelm@25129
  2600
context).  Within the body context of a 'class' target, a separate
wenzelm@25129
  2601
syntax layer ("user space type system") takes care of converting
wenzelm@25129
  2602
between global polymorphic consts and internal locale representation.
