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

    62
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@15703
    63
wenzelm@16234
    64
* Commands 'display_drafts' and 'print_drafts' perform simple output
wenzelm@16234
    65
of raw sources.  Only those symbols that do not require additional
wenzelm@16234
    66
LaTeX packages (depending on comments in isabellesym.sty) are
wenzelm@16234
    67
displayed properly, everything else is left verbatim.  isatool display
wenzelm@16234
    68
and isatool print are used as front ends (these are subject to the
wenzelm@16234
    69
DVI/PDF_VIEWER and PRINT_COMMAND settings, respectively).
wenzelm@16234
    70
wenzelm@17047
    71
* Command tags control specific markup of certain regions of text,
wenzelm@17047
    72
notably folding and hiding.  Predefined tags include "theory" (for
wenzelm@17047
    73
theory begin and end), "proof" for proof commands, and "ML" for
wenzelm@17047
    74
commands involving ML code; the additional tags "visible" and
wenzelm@17047
    75
"invisible" are unused by default.  Users may give explicit tag
wenzelm@17047
    76
specifications in the text, e.g. ''by %invisible (auto)''.  The
wenzelm@17047
    77
interpretation of tags is determined by the LaTeX job during document
wenzelm@17047
    78
preparation: see option -V of isatool usedir, or options -n and -t of
wenzelm@17047
    79
isatool document, or even the LaTeX macros \isakeeptag, \isafoldtag,
wenzelm@17047
    80
\isadroptag.
wenzelm@17047
    81
wenzelm@17047
    82
Several document versions may be produced at the same time via isatool
wenzelm@17047
    83
usedir (the generated index.html will link all of them).  Typical
wenzelm@17047
    84
specifications include ''-V document=theory,proof,ML'' to present
wenzelm@17047
    85
theory/proof/ML parts faithfully, ''-V outline=/proof,/ML'' to fold
wenzelm@17047
    86
proof and ML commands, and ''-V mutilated=-theory,-proof,-ML'' to omit
wenzelm@17047
    87
these parts without any formal replacement text.  The Isabelle site
wenzelm@17047
    88
default settings produce ''document'' and ''outline'' versions as
wenzelm@17047
    89
specified above.
wenzelm@16234
    90
haftmann@17402
    91
* Several new antiquotations:
wenzelm@15979
    92
wenzelm@15979
    93
  @{term_type term} prints a term with its type annotated;
wenzelm@15979
    94
wenzelm@15979
    95
  @{typeof term} prints the type of a term;
wenzelm@15979
    96
wenzelm@16234
    97
  @{const const} is the same as @{term const}, but checks that the
wenzelm@16234
    98
  argument is a known logical constant;
wenzelm@15979
    99
wenzelm@15979
   100
  @{term_style style term} and @{thm_style style thm} print a term or
wenzelm@16234
   101
  theorem applying a "style" to it
wenzelm@16234
   102
wenzelm@17117
   103
  @{ML text}
wenzelm@17117
   104
wenzelm@16234
   105
Predefined styles are 'lhs' and 'rhs' printing the lhs/rhs of
wenzelm@16234
   106
definitions, equations, inequations etc., 'concl' printing only the
schirmer@17393
   107
conclusion of a meta-logical statement theorem, and 'prem1' .. 'prem19'
wenzelm@16234
   108
to print the specified premise.  TermStyle.add_style provides an ML
wenzelm@16234
   109
interface for introducing further styles.  See also the "LaTeX Sugar"
wenzelm@17117
   110
document practical applications.  The ML antiquotation prints
wenzelm@17117
   111
type-checked ML expressions verbatim.
wenzelm@16234
   112
wenzelm@17259
   113
* Markup commands 'chapter', 'section', 'subsection', 'subsubsection',
wenzelm@17259
   114
and 'text' support optional locale specification '(in loc)', which
wenzelm@17269
   115
specifies the default context for interpreting antiquotations.  For
wenzelm@17269
   116
example: 'text (in lattice) {* @{thm inf_assoc}*}'.
wenzelm@17259
   117
wenzelm@17259
   118
* Option 'locale=NAME' of antiquotations specifies an alternative
wenzelm@17259
   119
context interpreting the subsequent argument.  For example: @{thm
wenzelm@17269
   120
[locale=lattice] inf_assoc}.
wenzelm@17259
   121
wenzelm@17097
   122
* Proper output of proof terms (@{prf ...} and @{full_prf ...}) within
wenzelm@17097
   123
a proof context.
wenzelm@17097
   124
wenzelm@17097
   125
* Proper output of antiquotations for theory commands involving a
wenzelm@17097
   126
proof context (such as 'locale' or 'theorem (in loc) ...').
wenzelm@17097
   127
wenzelm@17193
   128
* Delimiters of outer tokens (string etc.) now produce separate LaTeX
wenzelm@17193
   129
macros (\isachardoublequoteopen, isachardoublequoteclose etc.).
wenzelm@17193
   130
wenzelm@17193
   131
* isatool usedir: new option -C (default true) controls whether option
wenzelm@17193
   132
-D should include a copy of the original document directory; -C false
wenzelm@17193
   133
prevents unwanted effects such as copying of administrative CVS data.
wenzelm@17193
   134
wenzelm@16234
   135
wenzelm@16234
   136
*** Pure ***
wenzelm@16234
   137
wenzelm@16234
   138
* Considerably improved version of 'constdefs' command.  Now performs
wenzelm@16234
   139
automatic type-inference of declared constants; additional support for
wenzelm@16234
   140
local structure declarations (cf. locales and HOL records), see also
wenzelm@16234
   141
isar-ref manual.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY: need to observe strictly
wenzelm@16234
   142
sequential dependencies of definitions within a single 'constdefs'
wenzelm@16234
   143
section; moreover, the declared name needs to be an identifier.  If
wenzelm@16234
   144
all fails, consider to fall back on 'consts' and 'defs' separately.
wenzelm@16234
   145
wenzelm@16234
   146
* Improved indexed syntax and implicit structures.  First of all,
wenzelm@16234
   147
indexed syntax provides a notational device for subscripted
wenzelm@16234
   148
application, using the new syntax \<^bsub>term\<^esub> for arbitrary
wenzelm@16234
   149
expressions.  Secondly, in a local context with structure
wenzelm@16234
   150
declarations, number indexes \<^sub>n or the empty index (default
wenzelm@16234
   151
number 1) refer to a certain fixed variable implicitly; option
wenzelm@16234
   152
show_structs controls printing of implicit structures.  Typical
wenzelm@16234
   153
applications of these concepts involve record types and locales.
wenzelm@16234
   154
wenzelm@16234
   155
* New command 'no_syntax' removes grammar declarations (and
wenzelm@16234
   156
translations) resulting from the given syntax specification, which is
wenzelm@16234
   157
interpreted in the same manner as for the 'syntax' command.
wenzelm@16234
   158
wenzelm@16234
   159
* 'Advanced' translation functions (parse_translation etc.) may depend
wenzelm@16234
   160
on the signature of the theory context being presently used for
wenzelm@16234
   161
parsing/printing, see also isar-ref manual.
wenzelm@16234
   162
wenzelm@16856
   163
* Improved 'oracle' command provides a type-safe interface to turn an
wenzelm@16856
   164
ML expression of type theory -> T -> term into a primitive rule of
wenzelm@16856
   165
type theory -> T -> thm (i.e. the functionality of Thm.invoke_oracle
wenzelm@16856
   166
is already included here); see also FOL/ex/IffExample.thy;
wenzelm@16856
   167
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@16856
   168
wenzelm@17275
   169
* axclass: name space prefix for class "c" is now "c_class" (was "c"
wenzelm@17275
   170
before); "cI" is no longer bound, use "c.intro" instead.
wenzelm@17275
   171
INCOMPATIBILITY.  This change avoids clashes of fact bindings for
wenzelm@17275
   172
axclasses vs. locales.
wenzelm@17275
   173
wenzelm@16234
   174
* Improved internal renaming of symbolic identifiers -- attach primes
wenzelm@16234
   175
instead of base 26 numbers.
wenzelm@16234
   176
wenzelm@16234
   177
* New flag show_question_marks controls printing of leading question
wenzelm@16234
   178
marks in schematic variable names.
wenzelm@16234
   179
wenzelm@16234
   180
* In schematic variable names, *any* symbol following \<^isub> or
wenzelm@16234
   181
\<^isup> is now treated as part of the base name.  For example, the
wenzelm@16234
   182
following works without printing of awkward ".0" indexes:
wenzelm@16234
   183
wenzelm@16234
   184
  lemma "x\<^isub>1 = x\<^isub>2 ==> x\<^isub>2 = x\<^isub>1"
wenzelm@16234
   185
    by simp
wenzelm@16234
   186
wenzelm@16234
   187
* Inner syntax includes (*(*nested*) comments*).
wenzelm@16234
   188
wenzelm@16234
   189
* Pretty pinter now supports unbreakable blocks, specified in mixfix
wenzelm@16234
   190
annotations as "(00...)".
wenzelm@16234
   191
wenzelm@16234
   192
* Clear separation of logical types and nonterminals, where the latter
wenzelm@16234
   193
may only occur in 'syntax' specifications or type abbreviations.
wenzelm@16234
   194
Before that distinction was only partially implemented via type class
wenzelm@16234
   195
"logic" vs. "{}".  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY in rare cases of improper
wenzelm@16234
   196
use of 'types'/'consts' instead of 'nonterminals'/'syntax'.  Some very
wenzelm@16234
   197
exotic syntax specifications may require further adaption
wenzelm@16234
   198
(e.g. Cube/Base.thy).
wenzelm@16234
   199
wenzelm@16234
   200
* Removed obsolete type class "logic", use the top sort {} instead.
wenzelm@16234
   201
Note that non-logical types should be declared as 'nonterminals'
wenzelm@16234
   202
rather than 'types'.  INCOMPATIBILITY for new object-logic
wenzelm@16234
   203
specifications.
wenzelm@16234
   204
ballarin@17095
   205
* Attributes 'induct' and 'cases': type or set names may now be
ballarin@17095
   206
locally fixed variables as well.
ballarin@17095
   207
wenzelm@16234
   208
* Simplifier: can now control the depth to which conditional rewriting
wenzelm@16234
   209
is traced via the PG menu Isabelle -> Settings -> Trace Simp Depth
wenzelm@16234
   210
Limit.
wenzelm@16234
   211
wenzelm@16234
   212
* Simplifier: simplification procedures may now take the current
wenzelm@16234
   213
simpset into account (cf. Simplifier.simproc(_i) / mk_simproc
wenzelm@16234
   214
interface), which is very useful for calling the Simplifier
wenzelm@16234
   215
recursively.  Minor INCOMPATIBILITY: the 'prems' argument of simprocs
wenzelm@16234
   216
is gone -- use prems_of_ss on the simpset instead.  Moreover, the
wenzelm@16234
   217
low-level mk_simproc no longer applies Logic.varify internally, to
wenzelm@16234
   218
allow for use in a context of fixed variables.
wenzelm@16234
   219
wenzelm@16234
   220
* thin_tac now works even if the assumption being deleted contains !!
wenzelm@16234
   221
or ==>.  More generally, erule now works even if the major premise of
wenzelm@16234
   222
the elimination rule contains !! or ==>.
wenzelm@16234
   223
wenzelm@16234
   224
* Reorganized bootstrapping of the Pure theories; CPure is now derived
wenzelm@16234
   225
from Pure, which contains all common declarations already.  Both
wenzelm@16234
   226
theories are defined via plain Isabelle/Isar .thy files.
wenzelm@16234
   227
INCOMPATIBILITY: elements of CPure (such as the CPure.intro /
wenzelm@16234
   228
CPure.elim / CPure.dest attributes) now appear in the Pure name space;
wenzelm@16234
   229
use isatool fixcpure to adapt your theory and ML sources.
wenzelm@16234
   230
wenzelm@16234
   231
* New syntax 'name(i-j, i-, i, ...)' for referring to specific
wenzelm@16234
   232
selections of theorems in named facts via index ranges.
wenzelm@16234
   233
wenzelm@17097
   234
* 'print_theorems': in theory mode, really print the difference
wenzelm@17097
   235
wrt. the last state (works for interactive theory development only),
wenzelm@17097
   236
in proof mode print all local facts (cf. 'print_facts');
wenzelm@17097
   237
wenzelm@17397
   238
* 'hide': option '(open)' hides only base names.
wenzelm@17397
   239
wenzelm@17275
   240
* More efficient treatment of intermediate checkpoints in interactive
wenzelm@17275
   241
theory development.
wenzelm@17275
   242
wenzelm@16234
   243
wenzelm@16234
   244
*** Locales ***
ballarin@17095
   245
wenzelm@17385
   246
* New commands for the interpretation of locale expressions in
wenzelm@17385
   247
theories (1), locales (2) and proof contexts (3).  These generate
wenzelm@17385
   248
proof obligations from the expression specification.  After the
wenzelm@17385
   249
obligations have been discharged, theorems of the expression are added
wenzelm@17385
   250
to the theory, target locale or proof context.  The synopsis of the
wenzelm@17385
   251
commands is a follows:
wenzelm@17385
   252
ballarin@17095
   253
  (1) interpretation expr inst
ballarin@17095
   254
  (2) interpretation target < expr
ballarin@17095
   255
  (3) interpret expr inst
wenzelm@17385
   256
ballarin@17095
   257
Interpretation in theories and proof contexts require a parameter
ballarin@17095
   258
instantiation of terms from the current context.  This is applied to
wenzelm@17385
   259
specifications and theorems of the interpreted expression.
wenzelm@17385
   260
Interpretation in locales only permits parameter renaming through the
wenzelm@17385
   261
locale expression.  Interpretation is smart in that interpretations
wenzelm@17385
   262
that are active already do not occur in proof obligations, neither are
wenzelm@17385
   263
instantiated theorems stored in duplicate.  Use 'print_interps' to
wenzelm@17385
   264
inspect active interpretations of a particular locale.  For details,
ballarin@17436
   265
see the Isar Reference manual.  Examples can be found in

wenzelm@16234
   279
* Proper static binding of attribute syntax -- i.e. types / terms /
wenzelm@16234
   280
facts mentioned as arguments are always those of the locale definition
wenzelm@16234
   281
context, independently of the context of later invocations.  Moreover,
wenzelm@16234
   282
locale operations (renaming and type / term instantiation) are applied
wenzelm@16234
   283
to attribute arguments as expected.
wenzelm@16234
   284
wenzelm@16234
   285
INCOMPATIBILITY of the ML interface: always pass Attrib.src instead of
wenzelm@16234
   286
actual attributes; rare situations may require Attrib.attribute to
wenzelm@16234
   287
embed those attributes into Attrib.src that lack concrete syntax.
wenzelm@16234
   288
Attribute implementations need to cooperate properly with the static
wenzelm@16234
   289
binding mechanism.  Basic parsers Args.XXX_typ/term/prop and
wenzelm@16234
   290
Attrib.XXX_thm etc. already do the right thing without further
wenzelm@16234
   291
intervention.  Only unusual applications -- such as "where" or "of"
wenzelm@16234
   292
(cf. src/Pure/Isar/attrib.ML), which process arguments depending both
wenzelm@16234
   293
on the context and the facts involved -- may have to assign parsed
wenzelm@16234
   294
values to argument tokens explicitly.
wenzelm@16234
   295
wenzelm@16234
   296
* Changed parameter management in theorem generation for long goal
wenzelm@16234

   307
single-step rewriting: it now works in bound variable contexts. New is
wenzelm@16234
   308
'subst (asm)', for rewriting an assumption.  INCOMPATIBILITY: may
wenzelm@16234

wenzelm@14878
   329
wenzelm@14878
   330
  syntax (epsilon)
wenzelm@14878
   331

wenzelm@16234
   333
The symbol \<some> is displayed as the alternative epsilon of LaTeX
wenzelm@16234
   334
and x-symbol; use option '-m epsilon' to get it actually printed.
wenzelm@16234
   335
Moreover, the mathematically important symbolic identifier \<epsilon>
wenzelm@16234
   336
becomes available as variable, constant etc.  INCOMPATIBILITY,
wenzelm@16234

* "x > y" abbreviates "y < x" and "x >= y" abbreviates "y <= x".
wenzelm@16234
   339
Similarly for all quantifiers: "ALL x > y" etc.  The x-symbol for >=
wenzelm@17371
   340
is \<ge>. New transitivity rules have been added to HOL/Orderings.thy to
avigad@17016
   341
support corresponding Isar calculations.
wenzelm@16234
   342
wenzelm@16234

  {)m..n(}  {m<..<n}
wenzelm@16234
   354
wenzelm@16234
   355
The old syntax is still supported but will disappear in the next
wenzelm@16234
   356
release.  For conversion use the following Emacs search and replace
wenzelm@16234
   357

* Method comm_ring for proving equalities in commutative rings.
wenzelm@17389
   363
wenzelm@17389
   364
* Theory Finite_Set: changed the syntax for 'setsum', summation over
wenzelm@16234
   365
finite sets: "setsum (%x. e) A", which used to be "\<Sum>x:A. e", is
wenzelm@17371
   366
now either "SUM x:A. e" or "\<Sum>x \<in> A. e". The bound variable can
paulson@17189
   367
be a tuple pattern.
wenzelm@16234
   368
wenzelm@16234
   369
Some new syntax forms are available:
wenzelm@16234
   370
wenzelm@16234
   371
  "\<Sum>x | P. e"      for     "setsum (%x. e) {x. P}"
wenzelm@16234
   372
  "\<Sum>x = a..b. e"   for     "setsum (%x. e) {a..b}"
wenzelm@16234
   373
  "\<Sum>x = a..<b. e"  for     "setsum (%x. e) {a..<b}"
wenzelm@16234
   374
  "\<Sum>x < k. e"      for     "setsum (%x. e) {..<k}"
wenzelm@16234
   375
wenzelm@16234
   376
The latter form "\<Sum>x < k. e" used to be based on a separate
wenzelm@16234
   377
function "Summation", which has been discontinued.
wenzelm@16234
   378
wenzelm@16234
   379
* theory Finite_Set: in structured induction proofs, the insert case
wenzelm@16234
   380
is now 'case (insert x F)' instead of the old counterintuitive 'case
wenzelm@16234
   381
(insert F x)'.
wenzelm@16234
   382
wenzelm@16234
   383
* The 'refute' command has been extended to support a much larger
wenzelm@16234
   384
fragment of HOL, including axiomatic type classes, constdefs and
wenzelm@16234
   385
typedefs, inductive datatypes and recursion.
wenzelm@16234
   386
wenzelm@16234
   387
* Datatype induction via method 'induct' now preserves the name of the
wenzelm@16234
   388
induction variable. For example, when proving P(xs::'a list) by
wenzelm@16234
   389
induction on xs, the induction step is now P(xs) ==> P(a#xs) rather
wenzelm@16234
   390
than P(list) ==> P(a#list) as previously.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY
wenzelm@16234
   391
in unstructured proof scripts.
wenzelm@16234
   392
wenzelm@16234
   393
* Reworked implementation of records.  Improved scalability for
wenzelm@16234
   394
records with many fields, avoiding performance problems for type
wenzelm@16234
   395
inference. Records are no longer composed of nested field types, but
wenzelm@16234
   396
of nested extension types. Therefore the record type only grows linear
wenzelm@16234
   397
in the number of extensions and not in the number of fields.  The
wenzelm@16234
   398
top-level (users) view on records is preserved.  Potential
wenzelm@16234
   399
INCOMPATIBILITY only in strange cases, where the theory depends on the
wenzelm@16234
   400
old record representation. The type generated for a record is called
wenzelm@16234
   401
<record_name>_ext_type.
wenzelm@16234
   402
wenzelm@16234
   403
Flag record_quick_and_dirty_sensitive can be enabled to skip the
wenzelm@16234
   404
proofs triggered by a record definition or a simproc (if
wenzelm@16234
   405
quick_and_dirty is enabled).  Definitions of large records can take
wenzelm@16234
   406
quite long.
wenzelm@16234
   407
wenzelm@16234
   408
New simproc record_upd_simproc for simplification of multiple record
wenzelm@16234
   409
updates enabled by default.  Moreover, trivial updates are also
wenzelm@16234
   410
removed: r(|x := x r|) = r.  INCOMPATIBILITY: old proofs break
wenzelm@16234
   411
occasionally, since simplification is more powerful by default.
wenzelm@16234
   412
wenzelm@17275
   413
* typedef: proper support for polymorphic sets, which contain extra
wenzelm@17275
   414
type-variables in the term.
wenzelm@17275
   415
wenzelm@16234
   416
* Simplifier: automatically reasons about transitivity chains
wenzelm@16234
   417
involving "trancl" (r^+) and "rtrancl" (r^*) by setting up tactics
wenzelm@16234
   418
provided by Provers/trancl.ML as additional solvers.  INCOMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@16234
   419
old proofs break occasionally as simplification may now solve more
wenzelm@16234
   420
goals than previously.
wenzelm@16234
   421
wenzelm@16234
   422
* Simplifier: converts x <= y into x = y if assumption y <= x is
wenzelm@16234
   423
present.  Works for all partial orders (class "order"), in particular
wenzelm@16234
   424
numbers and sets.  For linear orders (e.g. numbers) it treats ~ x < y
wenzelm@16234
   425
just like y <= x.
wenzelm@16234
   426
wenzelm@16234
   427
* Simplifier: new simproc for "let x = a in f x".  If a is a free or
wenzelm@16234
   428
bound variable or a constant then the let is unfolded.  Otherwise
wenzelm@16234
   429
first a is simplified to b, and then f b is simplified to g. If
wenzelm@16234
   430
possible we abstract b from g arriving at "let x = b in h x",
wenzelm@16234
   431
otherwise we unfold the let and arrive at g.  The simproc can be
wenzelm@16234
   432
enabled/disabled by the reference use_let_simproc.  Potential
wenzelm@16234
   433
INCOMPATIBILITY since simplification is more powerful by default.

principle of nonstandard analysis. With a subgoal that mentions

nonstandard types like "'a star", the command "apply transfer"

* HOLCF: discontinued special version of 'constdefs' (which used to
wenzelm@16234
   646
support continuous functions) in favor of the general Pure one with

   647
full type-inference.
wenzelm@14682

huffman@17442

huffman@17442
   650
it is much faster on terms with many nested lambda abstractions (cubic
huffman@17442
   651
instead of exponential time).
huffman@17442
   652
huffman@17442
   653
* HOLCF: new syntax for domain package: selector names are now optional.
huffman@17442
   654
Parentheses should be omitted unless argument is lazy, for example:
huffman@17442
   655
huffman@17442
   656
  domain 'a stream = cons "'a" (lazy "'a stream")
huffman@17442
   657
huffman@17442
   658
* HOLCF: new command "fixrec" for defining recursive functions with pattern
huffman@17442
   659
matching; defining multiple functions with mutual recursion is also supported.
huffman@17442
   660
Patterns may include the constants cpair, spair, up, sinl, sinr, or any data
huffman@17442
   661
constructor defined by the domain package. The given equations are proven as
huffman@17442
   662
rewrite rules. See HOLCF/ex/Fixrec_ex.thy for syntax and examples.

huffman@17442
   665
of cpo and pcpo types. Syntax is exactly like the "typedef" command, but the
huffman@17442
   666
proof obligation additionally includes an admissibility requirement. The
huffman@17442
   667
packages generate instances of class cpo or pcpo, with continuity and
huffman@17442
   668
strictness theorems for Rep and Abs.

* Pure/library.ML no longer defines its own option datatype, but uses
wenzelm@16234
   691
that of the SML basis, which has constructors NONE and SOME instead of
wenzelm@16234
   692
None and Some, as well as exception Option.Option instead of OPTION.
wenzelm@16234
   693
The functions the, if_none, is_some, is_none have been adapted
wenzelm@16234
   694
accordingly, while Option.map replaces apsome.
wenzelm@15973

wenzelm@16860
   696
* Pure/library.ML: the exception LIST has been given up in favour of
wenzelm@16860
   697
the standard exceptions Empty and Subscript, as well as
wenzelm@16860
   698
Library.UnequalLengths.  Function like Library.hd and Library.tl are
wenzelm@16860
   699
superceded by the standard hd and tl functions etc.
wenzelm@16860
   700
wenzelm@16860
   701
A number of basic list functions are no longer exported to the ML
wenzelm@16860
   702
toplevel, as they are variants of predefined functions.  The following
wenzelm@16234
   703
suggests how one can translate existing code:
wenzelm@15973
   704
wenzelm@15973
   705
    rev_append xs ys = List.revAppend (xs, ys)
wenzelm@15973

   711
    mapfilter f xs = List.mapPartial f xs
wenzelm@15973
   712
wenzelm@16860
   713
* Pure/library.ML: several combinators for linear functional
wenzelm@16860
   714
transformations, notably reverse application and composition:
wenzelm@16860
   715
wenzelm@17371
   716
  x |> f                f #> g

wenzelm@16860
   718
haftmann@17495
   719
* Pure/library.ML: introduced/changed precedence of infix operators:
haftmann@17495
   720
haftmann@17495
   721
  infix 1 |> |-> ||> ||>> |>> |>>> #> #->;

   724
  infix 4 ~~ upto downto;
haftmann@17495
   725
haftmann@17495
   726
Maybe INCOMPATIBILITY when any of those is used in conjunction with other
haftmann@17495
   727
infix operators.

wenzelm@17408
   729
* Pure/library.ML: natural list combinators fold, fold_rev, and
haftmann@16869
   730
fold_map support linear functional transformations and nesting.  For
wenzelm@16860
   731
example:
wenzelm@16860
   732
wenzelm@16860
   733
  fold f [x1, ..., xN] y =
wenzelm@16860

    y |> fold f xs1 |> ... |> fold f xsN
wenzelm@16860
   738
wenzelm@16860

  fold f [x1, ..., xN] =

wenzelm@16860
   741
wenzelm@16860
   742
  (fold o fold) f [xs1, ..., xsN] =
wenzelm@16860

    fold f xs1 #> ... #> fold f xsN
wenzelm@16860
   744
wenzelm@17408
   745
* Pure/library.ML: the following selectors on type 'a option are
wenzelm@17408
   746
available:
wenzelm@17408
   747
wenzelm@17408
   748
  the:               'a option -> 'a  (*partial*)

   749
  these:             'a option -> 'a  where 'a = 'b list

   750
  the_default: 'a -> 'a option -> 'a
haftmann@17402
   751
  the_list:          'a option -> 'a list
haftmann@17402
   752
wenzelm@17408
   753
* Pure/General: structure AList (cf. Pure/General/alist.ML) provides
wenzelm@17408
   754
basic operations for association lists, following natural argument
haftmann@17495
   755
order; ; moreover the explicit equality predicate passed here avoids
haftmann@17495
   756
potentially expensive polymorphic runtime equality checks.
haftmann@17495
   757
The old functions may be expressed as follows:
wenzelm@17408
   758
wenzelm@17408
   759
  assoc = uncurry (AList.lookup (op =))
wenzelm@17408
   760
  assocs = these oo AList.lookup (op =)
wenzelm@17408
   761
  overwrite = uncurry (AList.update (op =)) o swap
wenzelm@17408
   762
wenzelm@17408
   763
* Pure/General: structure OrdList (cf. Pure/General/ord_list.ML)
wenzelm@17408
   764
provides a reasonably efficient light-weight implementation of sets as
wenzelm@17408
   765
lists.
wenzelm@17408
   766
wenzelm@17408
   767
* Pure/General: generic tables (cf. Pure/General/table.ML) provide a
wenzelm@17408
   768
few new operations; existing lookup and update are now curried to
wenzelm@17408
   769
follow natural argument order (for use with fold etc.);
wenzelm@17408
   770
INCOMPATIBILITY, use (uncurry Symtab.lookup) etc. as last resort.
wenzelm@17408
   771
wenzelm@17408
   772
* Pure/General: output via the Isabelle channels of
wenzelm@17408
   773
writeln/warning/error etc. is now passed through Output.output, with a
wenzelm@17408
   774
hook for arbitrary transformations depending on the print_mode
wenzelm@17408
   775
(cf. Output.add_mode -- the first active mode that provides a output
wenzelm@17408
   776
function wins).  Already formatted output may be embedded into further
wenzelm@17408
   777
text via Output.raw; the result of Pretty.string_of/str_of and derived
wenzelm@17408
   778
functions (string_of_term/cterm/thm etc.) is already marked raw to
wenzelm@17408
   779
accommodate easy composition of diagnostic messages etc.  Programmers
wenzelm@17408
   780
rarely need to care about Output.output or Output.raw at all, with
wenzelm@17408
   781
some notable exceptions: Output.output is required when bypassing the
wenzelm@17408
   782
standard channels (writeln etc.), or in token translations to produce
wenzelm@17408
   783
properly formatted results; Output.raw is required when capturing
wenzelm@17408
   784
already output material that will eventually be presented to the user
wenzelm@17408
   785
a second time.  For the default print mode, both Output.output and
wenzelm@17408
   786
Output.raw have no effect.
wenzelm@17408
   787
wenzelm@17408
   788
* Pure/General: Output.time_accumulator NAME creates an operator ('a
wenzelm@17408
   789
-> 'b) -> 'a -> 'b to measure runtime and count invocations; the
wenzelm@17408
   790
cumulative results are displayed at the end of a batch session.
wenzelm@17408
   791
wenzelm@17408
   792
* Pure/General: File.sysify_path and File.quote_sysify path have been
wenzelm@17408
   793
replaced by File.platform_path and File.shell_path (with appropriate
wenzelm@17408
   794
hooks).  This provides a clean interface for unusual systems where the
wenzelm@17408
   795
internal and external process view of file names are different.
wenzelm@17408
   796
wenzelm@16689
   797
* Pure: more efficient orders for basic syntactic entities: added
wenzelm@16689
   798
fast_string_ord, fast_indexname_ord, fast_term_ord; changed sort_ord
wenzelm@16689
   799
and typ_ord to use fast_string_ord and fast_indexname_ord (term_ord is
wenzelm@16689
   800
NOT affected); structures Symtab, Vartab, Typtab, Termtab use the fast
wenzelm@16689
   801
orders now -- potential INCOMPATIBILITY for code that depends on a
wenzelm@16689
   802
particular order for Symtab.keys, Symtab.dest, etc. (consider using
wenzelm@16689
   803
Library.sort_strings on result).
wenzelm@16689
   804
wenzelm@17408
   805
* Pure/term.ML: combinators fold_atyps, fold_aterms, fold_term_types,
wenzelm@17408
   806
fold_types traverse types/terms from left to right, observing natural
wenzelm@17408
   807
argument order.  Supercedes previous foldl_XXX versions, add_frees,
wenzelm@17408
   808
add_vars etc. have been adapted as well: INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17408
   809
wenzelm@16151
   810
* Pure: name spaces have been refined, with significant changes of the
wenzelm@16234
   811
internal interfaces -- INCOMPATIBILITY.  Renamed cond_extern(_table)
wenzelm@16234
   812
to extern(_table).  The plain name entry path is superceded by a
wenzelm@16234
   813
general 'naming' context, which also includes the 'policy' to produce
wenzelm@16234
   814
a fully qualified name and external accesses of a fully qualified
wenzelm@16234
   815
name; NameSpace.extend is superceded by context dependent
wenzelm@16234
   816
Sign.declare_name.  Several theory and proof context operations modify
wenzelm@16234
   817
the naming context.  Especially note Theory.restore_naming and
wenzelm@16234
   818
ProofContext.restore_naming to get back to a sane state; note that
wenzelm@16234
   819
Theory.add_path is no longer sufficient to recover from
wenzelm@16234
   820
Theory.absolute_path in particular.
wenzelm@16234
   821
wenzelm@16234
   822
* Pure: new flags short_names (default false) and unique_names
wenzelm@16234
   823
(default true) for controlling output of qualified names.  If
wenzelm@16234
   824
short_names is set, names are printed unqualified.  If unique_names is
wenzelm@16234
   825
reset, the name prefix is reduced to the minimum required to achieve
wenzelm@16234
   826
the original result when interning again, even if there is an overlap
wenzelm@16234
   827
with earlier declarations.
wenzelm@16151
   828
wenzelm@16456
   829
* Pure/TheoryDataFun: change of the argument structure; 'prep_ext' is
wenzelm@16456
   830
now 'extend', and 'merge' gets an additional Pretty.pp argument
wenzelm@16456
   831
(useful for printing error messages).  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@16456
   832
wenzelm@16456
   833
* Pure: major reorganization of the theory context.  Type Sign.sg and
wenzelm@16456
   834
Theory.theory are now identified, referring to the universal
wenzelm@16456
   835
Context.theory (see Pure/context.ML).  Actual signature and theory
wenzelm@16456
   836
content is managed as theory data.  The old code and interfaces were
wenzelm@16456
   837
spread over many files and structures; the new arrangement introduces
wenzelm@16456
   838
considerable INCOMPATIBILITY to gain more clarity:
wenzelm@16456
   839
wenzelm@16456
   840
  Context -- theory management operations (name, identity, inclusion,
wenzelm@16456
   841
    parents, ancestors, merge, etc.), plus generic theory data;
wenzelm@16456
   842
wenzelm@16456
   843
  Sign -- logical signature and syntax operations (declaring consts,
wenzelm@16456
   844
    types, etc.), plus certify/read for common entities;
wenzelm@16456
   845
wenzelm@16456
   846
  Theory -- logical theory operations (stating axioms, definitions,
wenzelm@16456
   847
    oracles), plus a copy of logical signature operations (consts,
wenzelm@16456
   848
    types, etc.); also a few basic management operations (Theory.copy,
wenzelm@16456
   849
    Theory.merge, etc.)
wenzelm@16456
   850
wenzelm@16456
   851
The most basic sign_of operations (Theory.sign_of, Thm.sign_of_thm
wenzelm@16456
   852
etc.) as well as the sign field in Thm.rep_thm etc. have been retained
wenzelm@16456
   853
for convenience -- they merely return the theory.
wenzelm@16456
   854
wenzelm@17193
   855
* Pure: type Type.tsig is superceded by theory in most interfaces.
wenzelm@17193
   856
wenzelm@16547
   857
* Pure: the Isar proof context type is already defined early in Pure
wenzelm@16547
   858
as Context.proof (note that ProofContext.context and Proof.context are
wenzelm@16547
   859
aliases, where the latter is the preferred name).  This enables other
wenzelm@16547
   860
Isabelle components to refer to that type even before Isar is present.
wenzelm@16547
   861
wenzelm@16373
   862
* Pure/sign/theory: discontinued named name spaces (i.e. classK,
wenzelm@16373
   863
typeK, constK, axiomK, oracleK), but provide explicit operations for
wenzelm@16373
   864
any of these kinds.  For example, Sign.intern typeK is now
wenzelm@16373
   865
Sign.intern_type, Theory.hide_space Sign.typeK is now
wenzelm@16373
   866
Theory.hide_types.  Also note that former
wenzelm@16373
   867
Theory.hide_classes/types/consts are now
wenzelm@16373
   868
Theory.hide_classes_i/types_i/consts_i, while the non '_i' versions
wenzelm@16373
   869
internalize their arguments!  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@16373
   870
wenzelm@16506
   871
* Pure: get_thm interface (of PureThy and ProofContext) expects
wenzelm@16506
   872
datatype thmref (with constructors Name and NameSelection) instead of
wenzelm@16506
   873
plain string -- INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@16506
   874
wenzelm@16151
   875
* Pure: cases produced by proof methods specify options, where NONE
wenzelm@16234
   876
means to remove case bindings -- INCOMPATIBILITY in
wenzelm@16234
   877
(RAW_)METHOD_CASES.
wenzelm@16151
   878
wenzelm@16373
   879
* Pure: the following operations retrieve axioms or theorems from a
wenzelm@16373
   880
theory node or theory hierarchy, respectively:
wenzelm@16373
   881
wenzelm@16373
   882
  Theory.axioms_of: theory -> (string * term) list
wenzelm@16373
   883
  Theory.all_axioms_of: theory -> (string * term) list
wenzelm@16373
   884
  PureThy.thms_of: theory -> (string * thm) list
wenzelm@16373
   885
  PureThy.all_thms_of: theory -> (string * thm) list
wenzelm@16373
   886
wenzelm@16718
   887
* Pure: print_tac now outputs the goal through the trace channel.
wenzelm@16718
   888
wenzelm@17408
   889
* Isar toplevel: improved diagnostics, mostly for Poly/ML only.
wenzelm@17408
   890
Reference Toplevel.debug (default false) controls detailed printing
wenzelm@17408
   891
and tracing of low-level exceptions; Toplevel.profiling (default 0)
wenzelm@17408
   892
controls execution profiling -- set to 1 for time and 2 for space
wenzelm@17408
   893
(both increase the runtime).
wenzelm@17408
   894
wenzelm@17408
   895
* Isar session: The initial use of ROOT.ML is now always timed,
wenzelm@17408
   896
i.e. the log will show the actual process times, in contrast to the
wenzelm@17408
   897
elapsed wall-clock time that the outer shell wrapper produces.
wenzelm@17408
   898
wenzelm@17408
   899
* Simplifier: improved handling of bound variables (nameless
wenzelm@16997
   900
representation, avoid allocating new strings).  Simprocs that invoke
wenzelm@16997
   901
the Simplifier recursively should use Simplifier.inherit_bounds to
wenzelm@16997
   902
avoid local name clashes.
wenzelm@16997
   903
wenzelm@17408
   904
* Provers: Simplifier and Classical Reasoner now support proof context
wenzelm@17408
   905
dependent plug-ins (simprocs, solvers, wrappers etc.).  These extra
wenzelm@17408
   906
components are stored in the theory and patched into the
wenzelm@16234
   907
simpset/claset when used in an Isar proof context.  Context dependent
wenzelm@16234
   908
components are maintained by the following theory operations:
wenzelm@16234
   909
wenzelm@16234
   910
  Simplifier.add_context_simprocs
wenzelm@16234
   911
  Simplifier.del_context_simprocs
wenzelm@16234
   912
  Simplifier.set_context_subgoaler
wenzelm@16234
   913
  Simplifier.reset_context_subgoaler
wenzelm@16234
   914
  Simplifier.add_context_looper
wenzelm@16234
   915
  Simplifier.del_context_looper
wenzelm@16234
   916
  Simplifier.add_context_unsafe_solver
wenzelm@16234
   917
  Simplifier.add_context_safe_solver
wenzelm@16234
   918
wenzelm@16234
   919
  Classical.add_context_safe_wrapper
wenzelm@16234
   920
  Classical.del_context_safe_wrapper
wenzelm@16234
   921
  Classical.add_context_unsafe_wrapper
wenzelm@16234
   922
  Classical.del_context_unsafe_wrapper
wenzelm@16234
   923
wenzelm@16234
   924
IMPORTANT NOTE: proof tools (methods etc.) need to use
wenzelm@16234
   925
local_simpset_of and local_claset_of to instead of the primitive
wenzelm@16234
   926
Simplifier.get_local_simpset and Classical.get_local_claset,
wenzelm@16234
   927
respectively, in order to see the context dependent fields!
wenzelm@16234
   928
wenzelm@17166
   929
* ML functions legacy_bindings and use_legacy_bindings produce ML fact
wenzelm@17166
   930
bindings for all theorems stored within a given theory; this may help
wenzelm@17166
   931
in porting non-Isar theories to Isar ones, while keeping ML proof
wenzelm@17166
   932
scripts for the time being.
wenzelm@17166
   933
wenzelm@17457
   934
* ML operator HTML.with_charset specifies the charset begin used for
wenzelm@17457
   935
generated HTML files.  For example:
wenzelm@17457
   936
wenzelm@17457
   937
  HTML.with_charset "utf-8" use_thy "Hebrew";

*** System ***
wenzelm@16234
   941
wenzelm@16234
   942
* Allow symlinks to all proper Isabelle executables (Isabelle,
wenzelm@16234
   943
isabelle, isatool etc.).
wenzelm@16234
   944
wenzelm@16234
   945
* ISABELLE_DOC_FORMAT setting specifies preferred document format (for
wenzelm@16234
   946
isatool doc, isatool mkdir, display_drafts etc.).
wenzelm@16234
   947
wenzelm@16234
   948
* isatool usedir: option -f allows specification of the ML file to be
wenzelm@16234
   949
used by Isabelle; default is ROOT.ML.
wenzelm@16234
   950
wenzelm@16251
   951
* New isatool version outputs the version identifier of the Isabelle
wenzelm@16251
   952
distribution being used.
wenzelm@16251
   953
wenzelm@16251
   954
* HOL: new isatool dimacs2hol converts files in DIMACS CNF format
wenzelm@16234
   955
(containing Boolean satisfiability problems) into Isabelle/HOL
wenzelm@16234
   956

ballarin@14398
   965
* Provers/order.ML:  new efficient reasoner for partial and linear orders.
ballarin@14398
   966
  Replaces linorder.ML.
ballarin@14398
   967
wenzelm@14606
   968
* Pure: Greek letters (except small lambda, \<lambda>), as well as Gothic
wenzelm@14606
   969
  (\<aa>...\<zz>\<AA>...\<ZZ>), calligraphic (\<A>...\<Z>), and Euler
skalberg@14173
   970
  (\<a>...\<z>), are now considered normal letters, and can therefore
skalberg@14173
   971
  be used anywhere where an ASCII letter (a...zA...Z) has until
skalberg@14173
   972
  now. COMPATIBILITY: This obviously changes the parsing of some
skalberg@14173
   973
  terms, especially where a symbol has been used as a binder, say
skalberg@14173
   974
  '\<Pi>x. ...', which is now a type error since \<Pi>x will be parsed
skalberg@14173
   975
  as an identifier.  Fix it by inserting a space around former
skalberg@14173
   976
  symbols.  Call 'isatool fixgreek' to try to fix parsing errors in
skalberg@14173
   977
  existing theory and ML files.
skalberg@14171
   978
paulson@14237
   979
* Pure: Macintosh and Windows line-breaks are now allowed in theory files.
paulson@14237
   980
wenzelm@14731
   981
* Pure: single letter sub/superscripts (\<^isub> and \<^isup>) are now
wenzelm@14731
   982
  allowed in identifiers. Similar to Greek letters \<^isub> is now considered
wenzelm@14731
   983
  a normal (but invisible) letter. For multiple letter subscripts repeat
wenzelm@14731
   984
  \<^isub> like this: x\<^isub>1\<^isub>2.
kleing@14233
   985
kleing@14333
   986
* Pure: There are now sub-/superscripts that can span more than one
kleing@14333
   987
  character. Text between \<^bsub> and \<^esub> is set in subscript in
wenzelm@14606
   988
  ProofGeneral and LaTeX, text between \<^bsup> and \<^esup> in
wenzelm@14606
   989
  superscript. The new control characters are not identifier parts.
kleing@14333
   990
schirmer@14561
   991
* Pure: Control-symbols of the form \<^raw:...> will literally print the
wenzelm@14606
   992
  content of "..." to the latex file instead of \isacntrl... . The "..."
wenzelm@14606
   993
  may consist of any printable characters excluding the end bracket >.
schirmer@14361
   994
paulson@14237
   995
* Pure: Using new Isar command "finalconsts" (or the ML functions
paulson@14237
   996
  Theory.add_finals or Theory.add_finals_i) it is now possible to
paulson@14237
   997
  declare constants "final", which prevents their being given a definition
paulson@14237
   998
  later.  It is useful for constants whose behaviour is fixed axiomatically
skalberg@14224
   999
  rather than definitionally, such as the meta-logic connectives.
skalberg@14224
  1000
wenzelm@14606
  1001
* Pure: 'instance' now handles general arities with general sorts
wenzelm@14606
  1002
  (i.e. intersections of classes),
skalberg@14503
  1003
kleing@14547
  1004
* Presentation: generated HTML now uses a CSS style sheet to make layout
wenzelm@14731
  1005
  (somewhat) independent of content. It is copied from lib/html/isabelle.css.
kleing@14547

* Tactic emulation methods rule_tac, erule_tac, drule_tac, frule_tac,
ballarin@14508
  1012
  cut_tac, subgoal_tac and thin_tac:
ballarin@14175
  1013
  - Now understand static (Isar) contexts.  As a consequence, users of Isar
ballarin@14175
  1014
    locales are no longer forced to write Isar proof scripts.
ballarin@14175
  1015
    For details see Isar Reference Manual, paragraph 4.3.2: Further tactic
ballarin@14175
  1016
    emulations.
ballarin@14175
  1017
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: names of variables to be instantiated may no
ballarin@14211
  1018
    longer be enclosed in quotes.  Instead, precede variable name with `?'.
ballarin@14211
  1019
    This is consistent with the instantiation attribute "where".

ballarin@14285
  1022
  - Now take type variables of instantiated theorem into account when reading
ballarin@14285
  1023
    the instantiation string.  This fixes a bug that caused instantiated
ballarin@14285
  1024
    theorems to have too special types in some circumstances.

* Calculation commands "moreover" and "also" no longer interfere with
wenzelm@14556

* Locales:
ballarin@14211
  1032
  - Goal statements involving the context element "includes" no longer
ballarin@14211
  1033
    generate theorems with internal delta predicates (those ending on
ballarin@14211
  1034
    "_axioms") in the premise.
ballarin@14211
  1035
    Resolve particular premise with <locale>.intro to obtain old form.
ballarin@14211
  1036
  - Fixed bug in type inference ("unify_frozen") that prevented mix of target
ballarin@14211
  1037
    specification and "includes" elements in goal statement.
ballarin@14254
  1038
  - Rule sets <locale>.intro and <locale>.axioms no longer declared as
ballarin@14254
  1039
    [intro?] and [elim?] (respectively) by default.
ballarin@14508
  1040
  - Experimental command for instantiation of locales in proof contexts:
ballarin@14551
  1041
        instantiate <label>[<attrs>]: <loc>
ballarin@14508
  1042
    Instantiates locale <loc> and adds all its theorems to the current context
ballarin@14551
  1043
    taking into account their attributes.  Label and attrs are optional
ballarin@14551
  1044
    modifiers, like in theorem declarations.  If present, names of
ballarin@14551
  1045
    instantiated theorems are qualified with <label>, and the attributes
ballarin@14551
  1046
    <attrs> are applied after any attributes these theorems might have already.
ballarin@14551
  1047
      If the locale has assumptions, a chained fact of the form
ballarin@14508
  1048
    "<loc> t1 ... tn" is expected from which instantiations of the parameters
ballarin@14551
  1049
    are derived.  The command does not support old-style locales declared
ballarin@14551
  1050
    with "locale (open)".
ballarin@14551
  1051
      A few (very simple) examples can be found in FOL/ex/LocaleInst.thy.

kleing@14624
  1060
  the HOL4 system with about 2500 theorems. It is imported by
kleing@14624
  1061
  replaying proof terms produced by HOL4 in Isabelle. The HOL4 image

* Simplifier:
ballarin@14398
  1066
  - Much improved handling of linear and partial orders.
ballarin@14398
  1067
    Reasoners for linear and partial orders are set up for type classes
ballarin@14398
  1068
    "linorder" and "order" respectively, and are added to the default simpset
ballarin@14398
  1069
    as solvers.  This means that the simplifier can build transitivity chains
ballarin@14398
  1070
    to solve goals from the assumptions.
ballarin@14398
  1071
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: old proofs break occasionally.  Typically, applications
ballarin@14398
  1072
    of blast or auto after simplification become unnecessary because the goal
ballarin@14398
  1073
    is solved by simplification already.

wenzelm@14731
  1080
    now formalized using the Ring_and_Field theory mentioned above.
paulson@14389
  1081
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: simplification and arithmetic behaves somewhat differently
paulson@14389
  1082
    than before, because now they are set up once in a generic manner.
wenzelm@14731
  1083
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: many type-specific arithmetic laws have gone.
paulson@14480
  1084
    Look for the general versions in Ring_and_Field (and Power if they concern
paulson@14480
  1085
    exponentiation).

* Records:
schirmer@14255
  1090
  - Record types are now by default printed with their type abbreviation
schirmer@14255
  1091
    instead of the list of all field types. This can be configured via
schirmer@14255
  1092
    the reference "print_record_type_abbr".
wenzelm@14731
  1093
  - Simproc "record_upd_simproc" for simplification of multiple updates added
schirmer@14255
  1094
    (not enabled by default).
schirmer@14427
  1095
  - Simproc "record_ex_sel_eq_simproc" to simplify EX x. sel r = x resp.

    EX x. x = sel r to True (not enabled by default).
schirmer@14255
  1097
  - Tactic "record_split_simp_tac" to split and simplify records added.
wenzelm@14731
  1098
kleing@14136

* Unions and Intersections:
nipkow@15119
  1114
  The latex output syntax of UN and INT has been changed
nipkow@15119
  1115
  from "\Union x \in A. B" to "\Union_{x \in A} B"
nipkow@15119
  1116
  i.e. the index formulae has become a subscript.
nipkow@15119
  1117
  Similarly for "\Union x. B", and for \Inter instead of \Union.
nipkow@14380
  1118
kleing@14418
  1119
* Unions and Intersections over Intervals:
wenzelm@14731
  1120
  There is new short syntax "UN i<=n. A" for "UN i:{0..n}. A". There is
wenzelm@14731
  1121
  also an x-symbol version with subscripts "\<Union>\<^bsub>i <= n\<^esub>. A"
kleing@14418
  1122
  like in normal math, and corresponding versions for < and for intersection.
kleing@14418
  1123
nipkow@15677
  1124
* HOL/List: Ordering "lexico" is renamed "lenlex" and the standard
nipkow@15677
  1125
  lexicographic dictonary ordering has been added as "lexord".
nipkow@15677
  1126
paulson@14401
  1127
* ML: the legacy theory structures Int and List have been removed. They had
paulson@14401

  conflicted with ML Basis Library structures having the same names.
nipkow@14380
  1129
webertj@14464
  1130
* 'refute' command added to search for (finite) countermodels.  Only works
webertj@14464
  1131
  for a fragment of HOL.  The installation of an external SAT solver is
webertj@14464
  1132
  highly recommended.  See "HOL/Refute.thy" for details.
webertj@14464
  1133
berghofe@14602
  1134
* 'quickcheck' command: Allows to find counterexamples by evaluating
berghofe@14602
  1135
  formulae under an assignment of free variables to random values.
berghofe@14602
  1136
  In contrast to 'refute', it can deal with inductive datatypes,
berghofe@14602
  1137
  but cannot handle quantifiers. See "HOL/ex/Quickcheck_Examples.thy"
berghofe@14602

* Provers/simplifier:
berghofe@13618
  1153
nipkow@13781
  1154
  - Completely reimplemented method simp (ML: Asm_full_simp_tac):
berghofe@13618
  1155
    Assumptions are now subject to complete mutual simplification,
berghofe@13618
  1156
    not just from left to right. The simplifier now preserves
berghofe@13618
  1157
    the order of assumptions.
berghofe@13618
  1158
berghofe@13618
  1159
    Potential INCOMPATIBILITY:
berghofe@13618
  1160
nipkow@13781
  1161
    -- simp sometimes diverges where the old version did
nipkow@13781
  1162
       not, e.g. invoking simp on the goal
berghofe@13618
  1163
berghofe@13618
  1164
        [| P (f x); y = x; f x = f y |] ==> Q
berghofe@13618
  1165
nipkow@13781
  1166
       now gives rise to the infinite reduction sequence
nipkow@13781
  1167
nipkow@13781
  1168
        P(f x) --(f x = f y)--> P(f y) --(y = x)--> P(f x) --(f x = f y)--> ...
nipkow@13781
  1169
nipkow@13781
  1170
       Using "simp (asm_lr)" (ML: Asm_lr_simp_tac) instead often solves this
nipkow@13781
  1171
       kind of problem.
nipkow@13781
  1172
nipkow@13781
  1173
    -- Tactics combining classical reasoner and simplification (such as auto)
nipkow@13781
  1174
       are also affected by this change, because many of them rely on
nipkow@13781
  1175
       simp. They may sometimes diverge as well or yield a different numbers
nipkow@13781
  1176
       of subgoals. Try to use e.g. force, fastsimp, or safe instead of auto
nipkow@13781
  1177
       in case of problems. Sometimes subsequent calls to the classical
nipkow@13781
  1178
       reasoner will fail because a preceeding call to the simplifier too
nipkow@13781
  1179
       eagerly simplified the goal, e.g. deleted redundant premises.
berghofe@13618
  1180
berghofe@13618
  1181
  - The simplifier trace now shows the names of the applied rewrite rules
berghofe@13618
  1182
nipkow@13829
  1183
  - You can limit the number of recursive invocations of the simplifier
nipkow@13829
  1184
    during conditional rewriting (where the simplifie tries to solve the
nipkow@13829
  1185
    conditions before applying the rewrite rule):
nipkow@13829
  1186
    ML "simp_depth_limit := n"
nipkow@13829
  1187
    where n is an integer. Thus you can force termination where previously
nipkow@13829
  1188
    the simplifier would diverge.
nipkow@13829
  1189
ballarin@13835
  1190
  - Accepts free variables as head terms in congruence rules.  Useful in Isar.
nipkow@13829
  1191
ballarin@13938
  1192
  - No longer aborts on failed congruence proof.  Instead, the
ballarin@13938
  1193
    congruence is ignored.

* Pure: New generic framework for extracting programs from constructive

  as HOL/Extraction for some case studies.
berghofe@14008
  1198
nipkow@13868

* Pure: The main goal of the proof state is no longer shown by default, only
nipkow@13868
  1200
the subgoals. This behaviour is controlled by a new flag.
ballarin@13835
  1201
   PG menu: Isabelle/Isar -> Settings -> Show Main Goal

  1202
(ML: Proof.show_main_goal).
nipkow@13815
  1203
nipkow@13815
  1204
* Pure: You can find all matching introduction rules for subgoal 1, i.e. all
nipkow@13815
  1205
rules whose conclusion matches subgoal 1:
nipkow@13815
  1206
      PG menu: Isabelle/Isar -> Show me -> matching rules
nipkow@13815
  1207
The rules are ordered by how closely they match the subgoal.
nipkow@13815
  1208
In particular, rules that solve a subgoal outright are displayed first
nipkow@13815
  1209
(or rather last, the way they are printed).

  1210
(ML: ProofGeneral.print_intros())
nipkow@13815
  1211
nipkow@13815
  1212
* Pure: New flag trace_unify_fail causes unification to print
nipkow@13781
  1213
diagnostic information (PG: in trace buffer) when it fails. This is
nipkow@13781
  1214
useful for figuring out why single step proofs like rule, erule or
nipkow@13781
  1215
assumption failed.
nipkow@13781
  1216
nipkow@13815
  1217
* Pure: Locale specifications now produce predicate definitions
wenzelm@13410
  1218
according to the body of text (covering assumptions modulo local
wenzelm@13410
  1219
definitions); predicate "loc_axioms" covers newly introduced text,
wenzelm@13410
  1220
while "loc" is cumulative wrt. all included locale expressions; the
wenzelm@13410
  1221
latter view is presented only on export into the global theory
wenzelm@13410
  1222
context; potential INCOMPATIBILITY, use "(open)" option to fall back
wenzelm@13410
  1223
on the old view without predicates;
wenzelm@13410
  1224
wenzelm@13459
  1225
* Pure: predefined locales "var" and "struct" are useful for sharing
wenzelm@13459
  1226
parameters (as in CASL, for example); just specify something like
wenzelm@13459
  1227
``var x + var y + struct M'' as import;
wenzelm@13459
  1228
wenzelm@13463
  1229
* Pure: improved thms_containing: proper indexing of facts instead of
wenzelm@13463
  1230
raw theorems; check validity of results wrt. current name space;
wenzelm@13463
  1231
include local facts of proof configuration (also covers active
wenzelm@13541
  1232
locales), cover fixed variables in index; may use "_" in term
wenzelm@13541
  1233
specification; an optional limit for the number of printed facts may
wenzelm@13541
  1234
be given (the default is 40);
wenzelm@13541
  1235
wenzelm@13541
  1236
* Pure: disallow duplicate fact bindings within new-style theory files
wenzelm@13541
  1237
(batch-mode only);
wenzelm@13540
  1238
wenzelm@13463
  1239
* Provers: improved induct method: assumptions introduced by case
wenzelm@13463
  1240
"foo" are split into "foo.hyps" (from the rule) and "foo.prems" (from
wenzelm@13463
  1241
the goal statement); "foo" still refers to all facts collectively;
wenzelm@13463
  1242
paulson@13550
  1243
* Provers: the function blast.overloaded has been removed: all constants
paulson@13550
  1244
are regarded as potentially overloaded, which improves robustness in exchange
paulson@13550
  1245
for slight decrease in efficiency;
paulson@13550
  1246
nipkow@13781
  1247
* Provers/linorder: New generic prover for transitivity reasoning over

linear orders.  Note: this prover is not efficient!
nipkow@13781
  1249
wenzelm@13522

omits the infamous "standard" operation, so this is more appropriate
wenzelm@13478

*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@11572
  1372
wenzelm@11842
  1373
* greatly simplified document preparation setup, including more
wenzelm@11842
  1374
graceful interpretation of isatool usedir -i/-d/-D options, and more
wenzelm@11842
  1375
instructive isatool mkdir; users should basically be able to get
wenzelm@12899
  1376
started with "isatool mkdir HOL Test && isatool make"; alternatively,
wenzelm@12899
  1377
users may run a separate document processing stage manually like this:
wenzelm@12899
  1378
"isatool usedir -D output HOL Test && isatool document Test/output";
wenzelm@11842
  1379
wenzelm@11842
  1380
* theory dependency graph may now be incorporated into documents;
wenzelm@11842
  1381
isatool usedir -g true will produce session_graph.eps/.pdf for use
wenzelm@11842
  1382
with \includegraphics of LaTeX;
wenzelm@11842
  1383
wenzelm@11864
  1384
* proper spacing of consecutive markup elements, especially text
wenzelm@11864
  1385
blocks after section headings;
wenzelm@11864
  1386
wenzelm@11572
  1387
* support bold style (for single symbols only), input syntax is like
wenzelm@11572
  1388
this: "\<^bold>\<alpha>" or "\<^bold>A";
wenzelm@11572
  1389
wenzelm@11814
  1390
* \<bullet> is now output as bold \cdot by default, which looks much
wenzelm@11572
  1391
better in printed text;
wenzelm@11572
  1392
wenzelm@11712
  1393
* added default LaTeX bindings for \<tturnstile> and \<TTurnstile>;
wenzelm@11712
  1394
note that these symbols are currently unavailable in Proof General /
wenzelm@12769
  1395
X-Symbol; new symbols \<zero>, \<one>, ..., \<nine>, and \<euro>;
wenzelm@12690
  1396
wenzelm@12690
  1397
* isatool latex no longer depends on changed TEXINPUTS, instead

  1403
wenzelm@12312
  1404
* Pure/Provers: improved proof by cases and induction;
wenzelm@12280
  1405
  - 'case' command admits impromptu naming of parameters (such as
wenzelm@12280
  1406
    "case (Suc n)");
wenzelm@12280
  1407
  - 'induct' method divinates rule instantiation from the inductive
wenzelm@12280
  1408
    claim; no longer requires excessive ?P bindings for proper
wenzelm@12280
  1409
    instantiation of cases;
wenzelm@12280
  1410
  - 'induct' method properly enumerates all possibilities of set/type
wenzelm@12280
  1411
    rules; as a consequence facts may be also passed through *type*
wenzelm@12280
  1412
    rules without further ado;
wenzelm@12280
  1413
  - 'induct' method now derives symbolic cases from the *rulified*
wenzelm@12280
  1414
    rule (before it used to rulify cases stemming from the internal
wenzelm@12280
  1415
    atomized version); this means that the context of a non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
  1416
    statement becomes is included in the hypothesis, avoiding the
wenzelm@12280
  1417
    slightly cumbersome show "PROP ?case" form;
wenzelm@12280
  1418
  - 'induct' may now use elim-style induction rules without chaining
wenzelm@12280
  1419
    facts, using ``missing'' premises from the goal state; this allows
wenzelm@12280
  1420
    rules stemming from inductive sets to be applied in unstructured
wenzelm@12280
  1421
    scripts, while still benefitting from proper handling of non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
  1422
    statements; NB: major inductive premises need to be put first, all
wenzelm@12280
  1423
    the rest of the goal is passed through the induction;
wenzelm@12280
  1424
  - 'induct' proper support for mutual induction involving non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
  1425
    rule statements (uses the new concept of simultaneous goals, see
wenzelm@12280
  1426
    below);
wenzelm@12853
  1427
  - append all possible rule selections, but only use the first
wenzelm@12853
  1428
    success (no backtracking);
wenzelm@11995
  1429
  - removed obsolete "(simplified)" and "(stripped)" options of methods;
wenzelm@12754
  1430
  - undeclared rule case names default to numbers 1, 2, 3, ...;
wenzelm@12754
  1431
  - added 'print_induct_rules' (covered by help item in recent Proof
wenzelm@12754
  1432
    General versions);
wenzelm@11995
  1433
  - moved induct/cases attributes to Pure, methods to Provers;
wenzelm@11995
  1434
  - generic method setup instantiated for FOL and HOL;
wenzelm@11986
  1435
wenzelm@12163
  1436
* Pure: support multiple simultaneous goal statements, for example
wenzelm@12163
  1437
"have a: A and b: B" (same for 'theorem' etc.); being a pure
wenzelm@12163
  1438
meta-level mechanism, this acts as if several individual goals had
wenzelm@12163
  1439
been stated separately; in particular common proof methods need to be
wenzelm@12163
  1440
repeated in order to cover all claims; note that a single elimination
wenzelm@12163
  1441
step is *not* sufficient to establish the two conjunctions, so this
wenzelm@12163
  1442
fails:
wenzelm@12163
  1443
wenzelm@12163
  1444
  assume "A & B" then have A and B ..   (*".." fails*)
wenzelm@12163
  1445
wenzelm@12163
  1446
better use "obtain" in situations as above; alternative refer to
wenzelm@12163
  1447
multi-step methods like 'auto', 'simp_all', 'blast+' etc.;
wenzelm@12163
  1448
wenzelm@12078
  1449
* Pure: proper integration with ``locales''; unlike the original
webertj@15154
  1450
version by Florian Kammller, Isar locales package high-level proof
wenzelm@12078
  1451
contexts rather than raw logical ones (e.g. we admit to include
wenzelm@12280
  1452
attributes everywhere); operations on locales include merge and
wenzelm@12964
  1453
rename; support for implicit arguments (``structures''); simultaneous
wenzelm@12964
  1454
type-inference over imports and text; see also HOL/ex/Locales.thy for
wenzelm@12964
  1455
some examples;
wenzelm@12078
  1456
wenzelm@12707
  1457
* Pure: the following commands have been ``localized'', supporting a
wenzelm@12707
  1458
target locale specification "(in name)": 'lemma', 'theorem',
wenzelm@12707
  1459
'corollary', 'lemmas', 'theorems', 'declare'; the results will be
wenzelm@12707
  1460
stored both within the locale and at the theory level (exported and
wenzelm@12707
  1461
qualified by the locale name);
wenzelm@12707
  1462
wenzelm@12964
  1463
* Pure: theory goals may now be specified in ``long'' form, with
wenzelm@12964
  1464
ad-hoc contexts consisting of arbitrary locale elements. for example
wenzelm@12964
  1465
``lemma foo: fixes x assumes "A x" shows "B x"'' (local syntax and
wenzelm@12964
  1466
definitions may be given, too); the result is a meta-level rule with
wenzelm@12964
  1467
the context elements being discharged in the obvious way;
wenzelm@12964
  1468
wenzelm@12964
  1469
* Pure: new proof command 'using' allows to augment currently used
wenzelm@12964
  1470
facts after a goal statement ('using' is syntactically analogous to
wenzelm@12964
  1471
'apply', but acts on the goal's facts only); this allows chained facts
wenzelm@12964
  1472
to be separated into parts given before and after a claim, as in
wenzelm@12964
  1473
``from a and b have C using d and e <proof>'';
wenzelm@12078
  1474
wenzelm@11722
  1475
* Pure: renamed "antecedent" case to "rule_context";
wenzelm@11722
  1476
wenzelm@12964
  1477
* Pure: new 'judgment' command records explicit information about the
wenzelm@12964
  1478
object-logic embedding (used by several tools internally); no longer
wenzelm@12964
  1479
use hard-wired "Trueprop";
wenzelm@12964
  1480
wenzelm@11738
  1481
* Pure: added 'corollary' command;
wenzelm@11738
  1482
wenzelm@11722
  1483
* Pure: fixed 'token_translation' command;
wenzelm@11722
  1484
wenzelm@11899
  1485
* Pure: removed obsolete 'exported' attribute;
wenzelm@11899
  1486
wenzelm@11933
  1487
* Pure: dummy pattern "_" in is/let is now automatically lifted over
wenzelm@11933
  1488
bound variables: "ALL x. P x --> Q x" (is "ALL x. _ --> ?C x")
wenzelm@11899
  1489
supersedes more cumbersome ... (is "ALL x. _ x --> ?C x");
wenzelm@11899
  1490
wenzelm@11952
  1491
* Pure: method 'atomize' presents local goal premises as object-level
wenzelm@11952
  1492
statements (atomic meta-level propositions); setup controlled via
wenzelm@11952
  1493
rewrite rules declarations of 'atomize' attribute; example
wenzelm@11952
  1494
application: 'induct' method with proper rule statements in improper
wenzelm@11952
  1495
proof *scripts*;
wenzelm@11952
  1496
wenzelm@12106
  1497
* Pure: emulation of instantiation tactics (rule_tac, cut_tac, etc.)
wenzelm@12106
  1498
now consider the syntactic context of assumptions, giving a better
wenzelm@12106
  1499
chance to get type-inference of the arguments right (this is
wenzelm@12106
  1500
especially important for locales);
wenzelm@12106
  1501
wenzelm@12312
  1502
* Pure: "sorry" no longer requires quick_and_dirty in interactive
wenzelm@12312
  1503
mode;
wenzelm@12312
  1504
wenzelm@12405
  1505
* Pure/obtain: the formal conclusion "thesis", being marked as
wenzelm@12405
  1506
``internal'', may no longer be reference directly in the text;
wenzelm@12405
  1507
potential INCOMPATIBILITY, may need to use "?thesis" in rare
wenzelm@12405
  1508
situations;
wenzelm@12405
  1509
wenzelm@12405
  1510
* Pure: generic 'sym' attribute which declares a rule both as pure
wenzelm@12405
  1511
'elim?' and for the 'symmetric' operation;
wenzelm@12405
  1512
wenzelm@12877
  1513
* Pure: marginal comments ``--'' may now occur just anywhere in the
wenzelm@12877
  1514
text; the fixed correlation with particular command syntax has been
wenzelm@12877
  1515
discontinued;
wenzelm@12877
  1516
berghofe@13023
  1517
* Pure: new method 'rules' is particularly well-suited for proof
berghofe@13023
  1518
search in intuitionistic logic; a bit slower than 'blast' or 'fast',
berghofe@13023
  1519
but often produces more compact proof terms with less detours;
berghofe@13023
  1520
wenzelm@12364
  1521
* Pure/Provers/classical: simplified integration with pure rule
wenzelm@12364
  1522
attributes and methods; the classical "intro?/elim?/dest?"
wenzelm@12364
  1523
declarations coincide with the pure ones; the "rule" method no longer
wenzelm@12364
  1524
includes classically swapped intros; "intro" and "elim" methods no
wenzelm@12364
  1525
longer pick rules from the context; also got rid of ML declarations
wenzelm@12364
  1526
AddXIs/AddXEs/AddXDs; all of this has some potential for
wenzelm@12364
  1527
INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12364
  1528
wenzelm@12405
  1529
* Provers/classical: attribute 'swapped' produces classical inversions
wenzelm@12405
  1530
of introduction rules;
wenzelm@12405
  1531
wenzelm@12364
  1532
* Provers/simplifier: 'simplified' attribute may refer to explicit
wenzelm@12364
  1533
rules instead of full simplifier context; 'iff' attribute handles
wenzelm@12364
  1534
conditional rules;
wenzelm@11936
  1535
wenzelm@11745
  1536
* HOL: 'typedef' now allows alternative names for Rep/Abs morphisms;
wenzelm@11745
  1537
wenzelm@11690
  1538
* HOL: 'recdef' now fails on unfinished automated proofs, use
wenzelm@11633
  1539
"(permissive)" option to recover old behavior;
wenzelm@11633
  1540
wenzelm@11933
  1541
* HOL: 'inductive' no longer features separate (collective) attributes
wenzelm@11933
  1542
for 'intros' (was found too confusing);
wenzelm@11933
  1543
wenzelm@12405
  1544
* HOL: properly declared induction rules less_induct and
wenzelm@12405
  1545
wf_induct_rule;

*** HOL ***
wenzelm@11474
  1549
wenzelm@11702
  1550
* HOL: moved over to sane numeral syntax; the new policy is as
wenzelm@11702
  1551
follows:
wenzelm@11702
  1552
wenzelm@11702
  1553
  - 0 and 1 are polymorphic constants, which are defined on any
wenzelm@11702
  1554
  numeric type (nat, int, real etc.);
wenzelm@11702
  1555
wenzelm@11702
  1556
  - 2, 3, 4, ... and -1, -2, -3, ... are polymorphic numerals, based
wenzelm@11702
  1557
  binary representation internally;
wenzelm@11702
  1558
wenzelm@11702
  1559
  - type nat has special constructor Suc, and generally prefers Suc 0
wenzelm@11702
  1560
  over 1::nat and Suc (Suc 0) over 2::nat;
wenzelm@11702
  1561
wenzelm@12364
  1562
This change may cause significant problems of INCOMPATIBILITY; here
wenzelm@12364
  1563
are some hints on converting existing sources:
wenzelm@11702
  1564
wenzelm@11702
  1565
  - due to the new "num" token, "-0" and "-1" etc. are now atomic
wenzelm@11702
  1566
  entities, so expressions involving "-" (unary or binary minus) need
wenzelm@11702
  1567
  to be spaced properly;
wenzelm@11702
  1568
wenzelm@11702
  1569
  - existing occurrences of "1" may need to be constraint "1::nat" or
wenzelm@11702
  1570
  even replaced by Suc 0; similar for old "2";
wenzelm@11702
  1571
wenzelm@11702
  1572
  - replace "#nnn" by "nnn", and "#-nnn" by "-nnn";
wenzelm@11702
  1573
wenzelm@11702
  1574
  - remove all special provisions on numerals in proofs;
wenzelm@11702
  1575
wenzelm@13042
  1576
* HOL: simp rules nat_number expand numerals on nat to Suc/0
wenzelm@12837
  1577
representation (depends on bin_arith_simps in the default context);
wenzelm@12837
  1578
wenzelm@12736
  1579
* HOL: symbolic syntax for x^2 (numeral 2);
wenzelm@12736
  1580
wenzelm@12335
  1581
* HOL: the class of all HOL types is now called "type" rather than
wenzelm@12335
  1582
"term"; INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt references to this type class
wenzelm@12335
  1583
in axclass/classes, instance/arities, and (usually rare) occurrences
wenzelm@12335
  1584
in typings (of consts etc.); internally the class is called
wenzelm@12335
  1585
"HOL.type", ML programs should refer to HOLogic.typeS;
wenzelm@12335
  1586
wenzelm@12280
  1587
* HOL/record package improvements:
wenzelm@12280
  1588
  - new derived operations "fields" to build a partial record section,
wenzelm@12280
  1589
    "extend" to promote a fixed record to a record scheme, and
wenzelm@12280
  1590
    "truncate" for the reverse; cf. theorems "xxx.defs", which are *not*
wenzelm@12280
  1591
    declared as simp by default;
wenzelm@12587
  1592
  - shared operations ("more", "fields", etc.) now need to be always
wenzelm@12587
  1593
    qualified) --- potential INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12280
  1594
  - removed "make_scheme" operations (use "make" with "extend") --
wenzelm@12280
  1595
    INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@11937
  1596
  - removed "more" class (simply use "term") -- INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12253
  1597
  - provides cases/induct rules for use with corresponding Isar
wenzelm@12253
  1598
    methods (for concrete records, record schemes, concrete more
wenzelm@12280
  1599
    parts, and schematic more parts -- in that order);
wenzelm@11930
  1600
  - internal definitions directly based on a light-weight abstract
wenzelm@11930
  1601
    theory of product types over typedef rather than datatype;
wenzelm@11930
  1602
berghofe@13023
  1603
* HOL: generic code generator for generating executable ML code from
berghofe@13023
  1604
specifications; specific support for HOL constructs such as inductive
berghofe@13023
  1605
datatypes and sets, as well as recursive functions; can be invoked
berghofe@13023
  1606
via 'generate_code' theory section;
berghofe@13023
  1607
wenzelm@11933
  1608
* HOL: canonical cases/induct rules for n-tuples (n = 3..7);
wenzelm@11933
  1609
paulson@13824
  1610
* HOL: consolidated and renamed several theories.  In particular:
wenzelm@14731
  1611
        Ord.thy has been absorbed into HOL.thy
wenzelm@14731
  1612
        String.thy has been absorbed into List.thy
wenzelm@14731
  1613
wenzelm@11802
  1614
* HOL: concrete setsum syntax "\<Sum>i:A. b" == "setsum (%i. b) A"
wenzelm@11802
  1615
(beware of argument permutation!);
wenzelm@11802
  1616
wenzelm@11657
  1617
* HOL: linorder_less_split superseded by linorder_cases;
wenzelm@11657
  1618
wenzelm@12917
  1619
* HOL/List: "nodups" renamed to "distinct";
nipkow@12889
  1620
wenzelm@11633
  1621
* HOL: added "The" definite description operator; move Hilbert's "Eps"
paulson@13824
  1622
to peripheral theory "Hilbert_Choice"; some INCOMPATIBILITIES:
paulson@13824
  1623
  - Ex_def has changed, now need to use some_eq_ex
wenzelm@11437
  1624
wenzelm@11572
  1625
* HOL: made split_all_tac safe; EXISTING PROOFS MAY FAIL OR LOOP, so
wenzelm@11572
  1626
in this (rare) case use:
wenzelm@11572
  1627
wenzelm@11572
  1628
  delSWrapper "split_all_tac"
wenzelm@11572
  1629
  addSbefore ("unsafe_split_all_tac", unsafe_split_all_tac)
wenzelm@11572
  1630
wenzelm@11572
  1631
* HOL: added safe wrapper "split_conv_tac" to claset; EXISTING PROOFS
wenzelm@11474
  1632
MAY FAIL;
nipkow@11361
  1633
wenzelm@11572
  1634
* HOL: introduced f^n = f o ... o f; warning: due to the limits of
wenzelm@11572
  1635
Isabelle's type classes, ^ on functions and relations has too general
wenzelm@11572
  1636
a domain, namely ('a * 'b) set and 'a => 'b; this means that it may be
wenzelm@11572
  1637
necessary to attach explicit type constraints;
nipkow@11307
  1638
wenzelm@12917
  1639
* HOL/Relation: the prefix name of the infix "O" has been changed from
wenzelm@12917
  1640
"comp" to "rel_comp"; INCOMPATIBILITY: a few theorems have been
wenzelm@12917
  1641
renamed accordingly (eg "compI" -> "rel_compI").
nipkow@12489
  1642
wenzelm@11487
  1643
* HOL: syntax translations now work properly with numerals and records
wenzelm@11487
  1644
expressions;
wenzelm@11474
  1645
wenzelm@12457
  1646
* HOL: bounded abstraction now uses syntax "%" / "\<lambda>" instead
wenzelm@12457
  1647
of "lam" -- INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@11474
  1648
wenzelm@11933
  1649
* HOL: got rid of some global declarations (potential INCOMPATIBILITY
wenzelm@11933
  1650
for ML tools): const "()" renamed "Product_Type.Unity", type "unit"
wenzelm@11933
  1651
renamed "Product_Type.unit";
wenzelm@11611
  1652
nipkow@12564
  1653
* HOL: renamed rtrancl_into_rtrancl2 to converse_rtrancl_into_rtrancl
nipkow@12564
  1654
wenzelm@12924
  1655
* HOL: removed obsolete theorem "optionE" (use "option.exhaust", or
wenzelm@12924
  1656
the "cases" method);
wenzelm@12924
  1657
wenzelm@12597
  1658
* HOL/GroupTheory: group theory examples including Sylow's theorem (by
webertj@15154
  1659
Florian Kammller);
wenzelm@12597
  1660
wenzelm@12608
  1661
* HOL/IMP: updated and converted to new-style theory format; several
wenzelm@12608
  1662
parts turned into readable document, with proper Isar proof texts and
wenzelm@12608
  1663
some explanations (by Gerwin Klein);
wenzelm@12597
  1664
wenzelm@12734
  1665
* HOL-Real: added Complex_Numbers (by Gertrud Bauer);
wenzelm@12734
  1666
wenzelm@12690
  1667
* HOL-Hyperreal is now a logic image;
wenzelm@12690
  1668
wenzelm@11611
  1669
wenzelm@12022
  1670
*** HOLCF ***
wenzelm@12022
  1671
wenzelm@12622
  1672
* Isar: consts/constdefs supports mixfix syntax for continuous
wenzelm@12622
  1673
operations;
wenzelm@12622
  1674
wenzelm@12622
  1675
* Isar: domain package adapted to new-style theory format, e.g. see
wenzelm@12622
  1676
HOLCF/ex/Dnat.thy;
wenzelm@12622
  1677
wenzelm@12622
  1678
* theory Lift: proper use of rep_datatype lift instead of ML hacks --
wenzelm@12280
  1679
potential INCOMPATIBILITY; now use plain induct_tac instead of former
wenzelm@12280
  1680
lift.induct_tac, always use UU instead of Undef;
wenzelm@12022
  1681
wenzelm@12597
  1682
* HOLCF/IMP: updated and converted to new-style theory;
wenzelm@12597
  1683
wenzelm@12022
  1684
wenzelm@11474
  1685
*** ZF ***
wenzelm@11474
  1686
wenzelm@12622
  1687
* Isar: proper integration of logic-specific tools and packages,
wenzelm@12622
  1688
including theory commands '(co)inductive', '(co)datatype',
wenzelm@12622
  1689
'rep_datatype', 'inductive_cases', as well as methods 'ind_cases',
wenzelm@12622
  1690
'induct_tac', 'case_tac', and 'typecheck' (with attribute 'TC');
wenzelm@12622
  1691
wenzelm@12622
  1692
* theory Main no longer includes AC; for the Axiom of Choice, base
wenzelm@12622
  1693
your theory on Main_ZFC;
wenzelm@12622
  1694
wenzelm@12622
  1695
* the integer library now covers quotients and remainders, with many
wenzelm@12622
  1696
laws relating division to addition, multiplication, etc.;
paulson@12563
  1697
wenzelm@12280
  1698
* ZF/UNITY: Chandy and Misra's UNITY is now available in ZF, giving a
wenzelm@12280
  1699
typeless version of the formalism;
wenzelm@12280
  1700
wenzelm@13025
  1701
* ZF/AC, Coind, IMP, Resid: updated and converted to new-style theory
wenzelm@13025
  1702
format;
wenzelm@12608
  1703
wenzelm@12280
  1704
* ZF/Induct: new directory for examples of inductive definitions,
wenzelm@12608
  1705
including theory Multiset for multiset orderings; converted to
wenzelm@12608
  1706
new-style theory format;
wenzelm@12177
  1707
wenzelm@13025
  1708
* ZF: many new theorems about lists, ordinals, etc.;
paulson@12850

wenzelm@11474
  1710
wenzelm@11474
  1711
*** General ***
wenzelm@11474
  1712
wenzelm@12280
  1713
* Pure/kernel: meta-level proof terms (by Stefan Berghofer); reference
wenzelm@12280
  1714
variable proof controls level of detail: 0 = no proofs (only oracle
wenzelm@12280
  1715
dependencies), 1 = lemma dependencies, 2 = compact proof terms; see
wenzelm@12280
  1716
also ref manual for further ML interfaces;
wenzelm@12280
  1717
wenzelm@12280
  1718
* Pure/axclass: removed obsolete ML interface
wenzelm@12280
  1719
goal_subclass/goal_arity;
wenzelm@12280
  1720
wenzelm@12280
  1721
* Pure/syntax: new token syntax "num" for plain numerals (without "#"
wenzelm@12280
  1722
of "xnum"); potential INCOMPATIBILITY, since -0, -1 etc. are now
wenzelm@12280
  1723
separate tokens, so expressions involving minus need to be spaced
wenzelm@12280
  1724
properly;
wenzelm@12280
  1725
wenzelm@12312
  1726
* Pure/syntax: support non-oriented infixes, using keyword "infix"
wenzelm@12312
  1727
rather than "infixl" or "infixr";
wenzelm@12312
  1728
wenzelm@12312
  1729
* Pure/syntax: concrete syntax for dummy type variables admits genuine
wenzelm@12312
  1730
sort constraint specifications in type inference; e.g. "x::_::foo"
wenzelm@12312
  1731
ensures that the type of "x" is of sort "foo" (but not necessarily a
wenzelm@12312
  1732
type variable);
wenzelm@12280
  1733
wenzelm@12280
  1734
* Pure/syntax: print modes "type_brackets" and "no_type_brackets"
wenzelm@12280
  1735
control output of nested => (types); the default behavior is
wenzelm@12280
  1736
"type_brackets";
wenzelm@12280
  1737
wenzelm@12280
  1738
* Pure/syntax: builtin parse translation for "_constify" turns valued
wenzelm@11817
  1739
tokens into AST constants;
wenzelm@11474
  1740
wenzelm@12280
  1741
* Pure/syntax: prefer later declarations of translations and print
wenzelm@12280
  1742
translation functions; potential INCOMPATIBILITY: need to reverse
wenzelm@12280
  1743
multiple declarations for same syntax element constant;
wenzelm@12280
  1744
wenzelm@12832
  1745
* Pure/show_hyps reset by default (in accordance to existing Isar
wenzelm@12832
  1746
practice);
wenzelm@12832
  1747
wenzelm@12280
  1748
* Provers/classical: renamed addaltern to addafter, addSaltern to
wenzelm@12280
  1749
addSafter;
wenzelm@12280
  1750
wenzelm@12280
  1751
* Provers/clasimp: ``iff'' declarations now handle conditional rules
wenzelm@12280
  1752
as well;
wenzelm@12253
  1753
wenzelm@12538
  1754
* system: tested support for MacOS X; should be able to get Isabelle +
wenzelm@12538
  1755
Proof General to work in a plain Terminal after installing Poly/ML
wenzelm@12538
  1756
(e.g. from the Isabelle distribution area) and GNU bash alone
wenzelm@12538
  1757
(e.g. from http://www.apple.com); full X11, XEmacs and X-Symbol
wenzelm@12538
  1758
support requires further installations, e.g. from
wenzelm@12538
  1759
http://fink.sourceforge.net/);
wenzelm@12538
  1760
wenzelm@12280
  1761
* system: support Poly/ML 4.1.1 (able to manage larger heaps);
wenzelm@11551
  1762
wenzelm@12753
  1763
* system: reduced base memory usage by Poly/ML (approx. 20 MB instead
wenzelm@12753
  1764
of 40 MB), cf. ML_OPTIONS;
wenzelm@12753
  1765
wenzelm@11633
  1766
* system: Proof General keywords specification is now part of the
wenzelm@11633
  1767
Isabelle distribution (see etc/isar-keywords.el);
wenzelm@11633
  1768
wenzelm@12728
  1769
* system: support for persistent Proof General sessions (refrain from
wenzelm@12728
  1770
outdating all loaded theories on startup); user may create writable
wenzelm@12728
  1771
logic images like this: ``isabelle -q HOL Test'';
wenzelm@12597
  1772
wenzelm@11551
  1773
* system: smart selection of Isabelle process versus Isabelle
wenzelm@11572
  1774
interface, accommodates case-insensitive file systems (e.g. HFS+); may
wenzelm@11572
  1775
run both "isabelle" and "Isabelle" even if file names are badly
wenzelm@11572
  1776
damaged (executable inspects the case of the first letter of its own
wenzelm@11572
  1777
name); added separate "isabelle-process" and "isabelle-interface";
wenzelm@11551
  1778
wenzelm@12472
  1779
* system: refrain from any attempt at filtering input streams; no
wenzelm@12472
  1780
longer support ``8bit'' encoding of old isabelle font, instead proper
wenzelm@12472
  1781
iso-latin characters may now be used; the related isatools
wenzelm@12472
  1782
"symbolinput" and "nonascii" have disappeared as well;
wenzelm@12472
  1783
wenzelm@12472
  1784
* system: removed old "xterm" interface (the print modes "xterm" and
wenzelm@12472
  1785
"xterm_color" are still available for direct use in a suitable
wenzelm@12472
  1786

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES ***
nipkow@10224
  1794
paulson@11241
  1795
* HOL: please note that theories in the Library and elsewhere often use the
paulson@11241
  1796
new-style (Isar) format; to refer to their theorems in an ML script you must
wenzelm@12622
  1797
bind them to ML identifers by e.g.      val thm_name = thm "thm_name";
paulson@11241
  1798
wenzelm@11043
  1799
* HOL: inductive package no longer splits induction rule aggressively,
wenzelm@11043
  1800
but only as far as specified by the introductions given; the old
oheimb@11130
  1801
format may be recovered via ML function complete_split_rule or attribute
wenzelm@11043
  1802
'split_rule (complete)';
wenzelm@11043
  1803
wenzelm@10998
  1804
* HOL: induct renamed to lfp_induct, lfp_Tarski to lfp_unfold,
wenzelm@10998
  1805
gfp_Tarski to gfp_unfold;
nipkow@10224
  1806
paulson@10288
  1807
* HOL: contrapos, contrapos2 renamed to contrapos_nn, contrapos_pp;
paulson@10288
  1808
wenzelm@10858
  1809
* HOL: infix "dvd" now has priority 50 rather than 70 (because it is a
wenzelm@10858
  1810
relation); infix "^^" has been renamed "``"; infix "``" has been
wenzelm@10858
  1811
renamed "`"; "univalent" has been renamed "single_valued";
nipkow@10793
  1812
wenzelm@10998
  1813
* HOL/Real: "rinv" and "hrinv" replaced by overloaded "inverse"
wenzelm@10998
  1814
operation;
wenzelm@10998
  1815
nipkow@10868
  1816
* HOLCF: infix "`" has been renamed "$"; the symbol syntax is \<cdot>;
nipkow@10856
  1817
wenzelm@10391
  1818
* Isar: 'obtain' no longer declares "that" fact as simp/intro;
wenzelm@10391
  1819
wenzelm@10401
  1820
* Isar/HOL: method 'induct' now handles non-atomic goals; as a
wenzelm@10401
  1821
consequence, it is no longer monotonic wrt. the local goal context
wenzelm@10401
  1822
(which is now passed through the inductive cases);
wenzelm@10401
  1823
wenzelm@10976
  1824
* Document preparation: renamed standard symbols \<ll> to \<lless> and
wenzelm@10976
  1825
\<gg> to \<ggreater>;
wenzelm@10976
  1826
nipkow@10224

wenzelm@10245
  1828
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@10245
  1829
wenzelm@10858
  1830
* \isabellestyle{NAME} selects version of Isabelle output (currently
wenzelm@10858
  1831
available: are "it" for near math-mode best-style output, "sl" for
wenzelm@10858
  1832
slanted text style, and "tt" for plain type-writer; if no
wenzelm@10858
  1833
\isabellestyle command is given, output is according to slanted
wenzelm@10858
  1834
type-writer);
wenzelm@10858
  1835
wenzelm@10322
  1836
* support sub/super scripts (for single symbols only), input syntax is
wenzelm@10322
  1837
like this: "A\<^sup>*" or "A\<^sup>\<star>";
wenzelm@10322
  1838
wenzelm@10858
  1839
* some more standard symbols; see Appendix A of the system manual for
wenzelm@11062
  1840
the complete list of symbols defined in isabellesym.sty;
wenzelm@10858
  1841
wenzelm@10998
  1842
* improved isabelle style files; more abstract symbol implementation
wenzelm@10998
  1843
(should now use \isamath{...} and \isatext{...} in custom symbol
wenzelm@10998
  1844
definitions);

* Pure: Isar now suffers initial goal statements to contain unbound
wenzelm@10547
  1863
schematic variables (this does not conform to actual readable proof
wenzelm@10547
  1864
documents, due to unpredictable outcome and non-compositional proof
wenzelm@10547

wenzelm@10547
  1866
for Prolog-style synthesis of proven results;
wenzelm@10547
  1867
wenzelm@10391
  1868
* Pure: assumption method (an implicit finishing) now handles actual
wenzelm@10391
  1869
rules as well;
wenzelm@10391
  1870
wenzelm@10391
  1871
* Pure: improved 'obtain' --- moved to Pure, insert "that" into
wenzelm@10391
  1872
initial goal, declare "that" only as Pure intro (only for single
wenzelm@10391
  1873
steps); the "that" rule assumption may now be involved in implicit
wenzelm@10391
  1874
finishing, thus ".." becomes a feasible for trivial obtains;
wenzelm@10391
  1875
wenzelm@10391
  1876
* Pure: default proof step now includes 'intro_classes'; thus trivial

  1880
statements as well;
wenzelm@10306
  1881
wenzelm@11097
  1882
* Pure: more robust selection of calculational rules;
wenzelm@11097
  1883
wenzelm@10858
  1884
* Pure: the builtin notion of 'finished' goal now includes the ==-refl
wenzelm@10858
  1885
rule (as well as the assumption rule);
wenzelm@10858
  1886
wenzelm@10858
  1887
* Pure: 'thm_deps' command visualizes dependencies of theorems and
wenzelm@10858
  1888
lemmas, using the graph browser tool;
wenzelm@10858
  1889
wenzelm@10944
  1890
* Pure: predict failure of "show" in interactive mode;
wenzelm@10944
  1891
wenzelm@11016
  1892
* Pure: 'thms_containing' now takes actual terms as arguments;
wenzelm@11016
  1893
wenzelm@10401
  1894
* HOL: improved method 'induct' --- now handles non-atomic goals
wenzelm@10401
  1895
(potential INCOMPATIBILITY); tuned error handling;
wenzelm@10401
  1896
wenzelm@10557
  1897
* HOL: cases and induct rules now provide explicit hints about the
wenzelm@10547
  1898
number of facts to be consumed (0 for "type" and 1 for "set" rules);
wenzelm@10547
  1899
any remaining facts are inserted into the goal verbatim;
wenzelm@10547
  1900
wenzelm@10858
  1901
* HOL: local contexts (aka cases) may now contain term bindings as
wenzelm@10858
  1902
well; the 'cases' and 'induct' methods new provide a ?case binding for
wenzelm@10858
  1903
the result to be shown in each case;
wenzelm@10858
  1904
wenzelm@10770
  1905
* HOL: added 'recdef_tc' command;

* HOL/Library: a collection of generic theories to be used together
wenzelm@10245
  1913
with main HOL; the theory loader path already includes this directory
wenzelm@10245
  1914
by default; the following existing theories have been moved here:
wenzelm@10245
  1915
HOL/Induct/Multiset, HOL/Induct/Acc (as Accessible_Part), HOL/While
wenzelm@10337
  1916
(as While_Combinator), HOL/Lex/Prefix (as List_Prefix);
wenzelm@10245
  1917
wenzelm@10966
  1918
* HOL/Unix: "Some aspects of Unix file-system security", a typical
wenzelm@10966
  1919
modelling and verification task performed in Isabelle/HOL +
wenzelm@10966
  1920
Isabelle/Isar + Isabelle document preparation (by Markus Wenzel).
wenzelm@10966
  1921
wenzelm@11094
  1922
* HOL/Algebra: special summation operator SUM no longer exists, it has
wenzelm@11094
  1923
been replaced by setsum; infix 'assoc' now has priority 50 (like
wenzelm@11094
  1924
'dvd'); axiom 'one_not_zero' has been moved from axclass 'ring' to
wenzelm@11094
  1925
'domain', this makes the theory consistent with mathematical
wenzelm@11094
  1926
literature;
wenzelm@11094
  1927
wenzelm@10514
  1928
* HOL basics: added overloaded operations "inverse" and "divide"
wenzelm@10726
  1929
(infix "/"), syntax for generic "abs" operation, generic summation
wenzelm@11094
  1930
operator \<Sum>;
wenzelm@10452
  1931
wenzelm@10391
  1932
* HOL/typedef: simplified package, provide more useful rules (see also
wenzelm@10391
  1933
HOL/subset.thy);
wenzelm@10391
  1934
wenzelm@10915
  1935
* HOL/datatype: induction rule for arbitrarily branching datatypes is
wenzelm@10915
  1936
now expressed as a proper nested rule (old-style tactic scripts may
wenzelm@10915
  1937
require atomize_strip_tac to cope with non-atomic premises);
wenzelm@10915
  1938
wenzelm@10915
  1939
* HOL: renamed theory "Prod" to "Product_Type", renamed "split" rule
wenzelm@10915
  1940
to "split_conv" (old name still available for compatibility);
wenzelm@10915
  1941
wenzelm@10915
  1942
* HOL: improved concrete syntax for strings (e.g. allows translation
wenzelm@10915
  1943
rules with string literals);
wenzelm@10915
  1944
paulson@12245
  1945
* HOL-Real-Hyperreal: this extends HOL-Real with the hyperreals
paulson@12245
  1946
 and Fleuriot's mechanization of analysis, including the transcendental
paulson@12245
  1947
 functions for the reals;
paulson@10756
  1948
wenzelm@11094
  1949
* HOL/Real, HOL/Hyperreal: improved arithmetic simplification;

  1952
*** CTT ***
paulson@10474
  1953
wenzelm@10547
  1954
* CTT: x-symbol support for Pi, Sigma, -->, : (membership); note that
wenzelm@10547
  1955
"lam" is displayed as TWO lambda-symbols
paulson@10474
  1956
wenzelm@10547
  1957

*** General ***
wenzelm@10391
  1962
wenzelm@10547
  1963
* Pure: the Simplifier has been implemented properly as a derived rule
wenzelm@10547
  1964
outside of the actual kernel (at last!); the overall performance
wenzelm@10547
  1965
penalty in practical applications is about 50%, while reliability of
wenzelm@10547
  1966
the Isabelle inference kernel has been greatly improved;
wenzelm@10547
  1967
wenzelm@11112
  1968
* print modes "brackets" and "no_brackets" control output of nested =>
wenzelm@11112
  1969
(types) and ==> (props); the default behaviour is "brackets";
wenzelm@11112
  1970
wenzelm@10391
  1971
* Provers: fast_tac (and friends) now handle actual object-logic rules
wenzelm@10391
  1972
as assumptions as well;
wenzelm@10391
  1973
wenzelm@11124
  1974
* system: support Poly/ML 4.0;
wenzelm@11124

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES ***
paulson@8014
  1984
wenzelm@8848
  1985
* HOL: simplification of natural numbers is much changed; to partly
wenzelm@8848
  1986
recover the old behaviour (e.g. to prevent n+n rewriting to #2*n)
wenzelm@8848
  1987
issue the following ML commands:
wenzelm@8848
  1988
wenzelm@8848
  1989
  Delsimprocs Nat_Numeral_Simprocs.cancel_numerals;
wenzelm@8848
  1990
  Delsimprocs [Nat_Numeral_Simprocs.combine_numerals];
paulson@8788
  1991
wenzelm@10129
  1992
* HOL: simplification no longer dives into case-expressions; this is
wenzelm@10129
  1993
controlled by "t.weak_case_cong" for each datatype t;
wenzelm@10003
  1994
wenzelm@10003
  1995
* HOL: nat_less_induct renamed to less_induct;
wenzelm@10003
  1996
wenzelm@10003
  1997
* HOL: systematic renaming of the SOME (Eps) rules, may use isatool
wenzelm@10003
  1998
fixsome to patch .thy and .ML sources automatically;
paulson@8967
  1999

  Eps_eq           -> some_eq_trivial
wenzelm@10003
  2008
wenzelm@10003
  2009
* HOL: exhaust_tac on datatypes superceded by new generic case_tac;
wenzelm@10003
  2010
wenzelm@10003
  2011
* HOL: removed obsolete theorem binding expand_if (refer to split_if
wenzelm@10003
  2012
instead);
wenzelm@10003
  2013
wenzelm@10003
  2014
* HOL: the recursion equations generated by 'recdef' are now called
wenzelm@10003
  2015
f.simps instead of f.rules;
wenzelm@10003
  2016
wenzelm@10003
  2017
* HOL: qed_spec_mp now also handles bounded ALL as well;
wenzelm@10003
  2018
wenzelm@10003
  2019
* HOL: 0 is now overloaded, so the type constraint ":: nat" may
wenzelm@10003
  2020
sometimes be needed;
wenzelm@10003
  2021
wenzelm@10003
  2022
* HOL: the constant for "f``x" is now "image" rather than "op ``";
paulson@8014
  2023
paulson@10065
  2024
* HOL: the constant for "f-``x" is now "vimage" rather than "op -``";
paulson@10065
  2025
wenzelm@9330
  2026
* HOL: the disjoint sum is now "<+>" instead of "Plus"; the cartesian
wenzelm@9330
  2027
product is now "<*>" instead of "Times"; the lexicographic product is
wenzelm@9330
  2028
now "<*lex*>" instead of "**";
nipkow@8705
  2029
wenzelm@10003
  2030
* HOL: theory Sexp is now in HOL/Induct examples (it used to be part
wenzelm@10003
  2031
of main HOL, but was unused); better use HOL's datatype package;
paulson@9971
  2032
wenzelm@10137
  2033
* HOL: removed "symbols" syntax for constant "override" of theory Map;
wenzelm@10137
  2034
the old syntax may be recovered as follows:
wenzelm@10137
  2035
wenzelm@10137
  2036
  syntax (symbols)
wenzelm@10137
  2037
    override  :: "('a ~=> 'b) => ('a ~=> 'b) => ('a ~=> 'b)"
wenzelm@10137
  2038
      (infixl "\\<oplus>" 100)
wenzelm@10137
  2039
wenzelm@8848
  2040
* HOL/Real: "rabs" replaced by overloaded "abs" function;
wenzelm@8848
  2041
wenzelm@8887
  2042
* HOL/ML: even fewer consts are declared as global (see theories Ord,
wenzelm@8887
  2043
Lfp, Gfp, WF); this only affects ML packages that refer to const names
wenzelm@8887
  2044
internally;
wenzelm@8887
  2045
wenzelm@10003
  2046
* HOL and ZF: syntax for quotienting wrt an equivalence relation
wenzelm@10003
  2047
changed from A/r to A//r;
wenzelm@9908
  2048
wenzelm@10003
  2049
* ZF: new treatment of arithmetic (nat & int) may break some old
wenzelm@10003
  2050
proofs;
wenzelm@8921
  2051
wenzelm@10003
  2052
* Isar: renamed some attributes (RS -> THEN, simplify -> simplified,
wenzelm@10003
  2053
rulify -> rule_format, elimify -> elim_format, ...);
paulson@9542
  2054
wenzelm@9941
  2055
* Isar/Provers: intro/elim/dest attributes changed; renamed
wenzelm@9941
  2056
intro/intro!/intro!! flags to intro!/intro/intro? (in most cases, one
wenzelm@9937
  2057
should have to change intro!! to intro? only); replaced "delrule" by
wenzelm@9937
  2058
"rule del";
wenzelm@9437
  2059
wenzelm@9612
  2060
* Isar/HOL: renamed "intrs" to "intros" in inductive definitions;
wenzelm@9612
  2061
wenzelm@9437
  2062
* Provers: strengthened force_tac by using new first_best_tac;
oheimb@9402
  2063
wenzelm@10003
  2064
* LaTeX document preparation: several changes of isabelle.sty (see
wenzelm@10003
  2065
lib/texinputs);
wenzelm@8729
  2066
paulson@8014

wenzelm@8487
  2068
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@8358
  2069
wenzelm@9198
  2070
* formal comments (text blocks etc.) in new-style theories may now
wenzelm@9753
  2071
contain antiquotations of thm/prop/term/typ/text to be presented
wenzelm@9753
  2072
according to latex print mode; concrete syntax is like this:
wenzelm@9753
  2073
@{term[show_types] "f(x) = a + x"};
wenzelm@9198
  2074
wenzelm@8358
  2075
* isatool mkdir provides easy setup of Isabelle session directories,
wenzelm@8518
  2076
including proper document sources;
wenzelm@8358
  2077
wenzelm@8358
  2078
* generated LaTeX sources are now deleted after successful run
wenzelm@8358
  2079
(isatool document -c); may retain a copy somewhere else via -D option
wenzelm@8358
  2080
of isatool usedir;
wenzelm@8358
  2081
wenzelm@8566
  2082
* isatool usedir -D now lets isatool latex -o sty update the Isabelle
wenzelm@10003
  2083
style files, achieving self-contained LaTeX sources and simplifying
wenzelm@10003
  2084
LaTeX debugging;
wenzelm@8566
  2085
wenzelm@8518
  2086
* old-style theories now produce (crude) LaTeX output as well;
wenzelm@8358
  2087
wenzelm@9057
  2088
* browser info session directories are now self-contained (may be put
wenzelm@9437
  2089
on WWW server seperately); improved graphs of nested sessions; removed
wenzelm@9437
  2090
graph for 'all sessions';
wenzelm@9057
  2091
wenzelm@10003
  2092
* several improvements in isabelle style files; \isabellestyle{it}
wenzelm@10003
  2093
produces fake math mode output; \isamarkupheader is now \section by
wenzelm@10003
  2094
default; see lib/texinputs/isabelle.sty etc.;
wenzelm@9489
  2095

wenzelm@8184
  2097
*** Isar ***
wenzelm@8184
  2098
wenzelm@10003
  2099
* Isar/Pure: local results and corresponding term bindings are now
wenzelm@10003
  2100
subject to Hindley-Milner polymorphism (similar to ML); this
wenzelm@10003
  2101
accommodates incremental type-inference very nicely;
wenzelm@8283
  2102
wenzelm@10003
  2103
* Isar/Pure: new derived language element 'obtain' supports
wenzelm@10003
  2104
generalized existence reasoning;
wenzelm@8621
  2105
wenzelm@10003
  2106
* Isar/Pure: new calculational elements 'moreover' and 'ultimately'
wenzelm@10003
  2107
support accumulation of results, without applying any rules yet;
wenzelm@10003
  2108
useful to collect intermediate results without explicit name
wenzelm@10003
  2109
references, and for use with transitivity rules with more than 2
wenzelm@10003
  2110
premises;
wenzelm@8184
  2111
wenzelm@10003
  2112
* Isar/Pure: scalable support for case-analysis type proofs: new
wenzelm@10003
  2113
'case' language element refers to local contexts symbolically, as
wenzelm@10003
  2114
produced by certain proof methods; internally, case names are attached
wenzelm@10003
  2115
to theorems as "tags";
wenzelm@8440
  2116
wenzelm@10003
  2117
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'hide' removes declarations from
wenzelm@9330
  2118
class/type/const name spaces;
wenzelm@9330
  2119
wenzelm@10003
  2120
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'defs' supports option "(overloaded)" to
wenzelm@9330
  2121
indicate potential overloading;
wenzelm@9330
  2122
wenzelm@10003
  2123
* Isar/Pure: changed syntax of local blocks from {{ }} to { };
wenzelm@8621
  2124
wenzelm@10003
  2125
* Isar/Pure: syntax of sorts made 'inner', i.e. have to write
wenzelm@10003
  2126
"{a,b,c}" instead of {a,b,c};
wenzelm@9011
  2127
wenzelm@10003
  2128
* Isar/Pure now provides its own version of intro/elim/dest
wenzelm@10003
  2129
attributes; useful for building new logics, but beware of confusion
wenzelm@10003
  2130
with the version in Provers/classical;
wenzelm@9612
  2131
wenzelm@10003
  2132
* Isar/Pure: the local context of (non-atomic) goals is provided via
wenzelm@10003
  2133
case name 'antecedent';
wenzelm@8440
  2134
wenzelm@10003
  2135
* Isar/Pure: removed obsolete 'transfer' attribute (transfer of thms
wenzelm@10003
  2136
to the current context is now done automatically);
wenzelm@9383
  2137
wenzelm@10003
  2138
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'method_setup' provides a simple interface
wenzelm@10003
  2139
for definining proof methods in ML;
wenzelm@9612
  2140
wenzelm@10003
  2141
* Isar/Provers: intro/elim/dest attributes changed; renamed
wenzelm@9941
  2142
intro/intro!/intro!! flags to intro!/intro/intro? (INCOMPATIBILITY, in
wenzelm@9941
  2143
most cases, one should have to change intro!! to intro? only);
wenzelm@9941
  2144
replaced "delrule" by "rule del";
wenzelm@8283
  2145
wenzelm@10003
  2146
* Isar/Provers: new 'hypsubst' method, plain 'subst' method and
wenzelm@10003
  2147
'symmetric' attribute (the latter supercedes [RS sym]);
wenzelm@10003
  2148
wenzelm@10003
  2149
* Isar/Provers: splitter support (via 'split' attribute and 'simp'
wenzelm@10003
  2150
method modifier); 'simp' method: 'only:' modifier removes loopers as
wenzelm@10003
  2151
well (including splits);
wenzelm@10003
  2152
wenzelm@10003
  2153
* Isar/Provers: Simplifier and Classical methods now support all kind
wenzelm@10003
  2154
of modifiers used in the past, including 'cong', 'iff', etc.
wenzelm@10003
  2155
wenzelm@10003
  2156
* Isar/Provers: added 'fastsimp' and 'clarsimp' methods (combination
wenzelm@10003
  2157
of Simplifier and Classical reasoner);
wenzelm@10003
  2158
wenzelm@10003
  2159
* Isar/HOL: new proof method 'cases' and improved version of 'induct'
wenzelm@10003
  2160
now support named cases; major packages (inductive, datatype, primrec,
wenzelm@10003
  2161
recdef) support case names and properly name parameters;
wenzelm@9612
  2162
wenzelm@10003
  2163
* Isar/HOL: new transitivity rules for substitution in inequalities --
wenzelm@10003
  2164
monotonicity conditions are extracted to be proven at end of
wenzelm@10003
  2165
calculations;
wenzelm@10003
  2166
wenzelm@10003
  2167
* Isar/HOL: removed 'case_split' thm binding, should use 'cases' proof
wenzelm@10003
  2168
method anyway;
wenzelm@10003
  2169
wenzelm@10003
  2170
* Isar/HOL: removed old expand_if = split_if; theorems if_splits =
wenzelm@10003
  2171
split_if split_if_asm; datatype package provides theorems foo.splits =
wenzelm@10003
  2172
foo.split foo.split_asm for each datatype;
wenzelm@10003
  2173
wenzelm@10003
  2174
* Isar/HOL: tuned inductive package, rename "intrs" to "intros"
wenzelm@10003
  2175
(potential INCOMPATIBILITY), emulation of mk_cases feature for proof
wenzelm@10003
  2176
scripts: new 'inductive_cases' command and 'ind_cases' method; (Note:
wenzelm@10003
  2177
use "(cases (simplified))" method in proper proof texts);
wenzelm@10003
  2178
wenzelm@10003
  2179
* Isar/HOL: added global 'arith_split' attribute for 'arith' method;
wenzelm@10003
  2180
wenzelm@10003
  2181
* Isar: names of theorems etc. may be natural numbers as well;
wenzelm@10003
  2182
wenzelm@10003
  2183
* Isar: 'pr' command: optional arguments for goals_limit and
wenzelm@9724
  2184
ProofContext.prems_limit; no longer prints theory contexts, but only
wenzelm@9724
  2185
proof states;
wenzelm@8487
  2186
wenzelm@10003
  2187
* Isar: diagnostic commands 'pr', 'thm', 'prop', 'term', 'typ' admit
wenzelm@8518
  2188
additional print modes to be specified; e.g. "pr(latex)" will print
wenzelm@8518
  2189
proof state according to the Isabelle LaTeX style;
wenzelm@8487
  2190
wenzelm@10003
  2191
* Isar: improved support for emulating tactic scripts, including proof
wenzelm@9612
  2192
methods 'rule_tac' etc., 'cut_tac', 'thin_tac', 'subgoal_tac',
wenzelm@9612
  2193
'rename_tac', 'rotate_tac', 'tactic', and 'case_tac' / 'induct_tac'
wenzelm@9612
  2194
(for HOL datatypes);
wenzelm@8534
  2195
wenzelm@10003
  2196
* Isar: simplified (more robust) goal selection of proof methods: 1st
wenzelm@10003
  2197
goal, all goals, or explicit goal specifier (tactic emulation); thus
wenzelm@10003
  2198
'proof method scripts' have to be in depth-first order;
wenzelm@8673
  2199
wenzelm@10003
  2200
* Isar: tuned 'let' syntax: replaced 'as' keyword by 'and';
wenzelm@8729
  2201
wenzelm@10003
  2202
* Isar: removed 'help' command, which hasn't been too helpful anyway;
wenzelm@10003
  2203
should instead use individual commands for printing items
wenzelm@10003
  2204
(print_commands, print_methods etc.);
wenzelm@9224
  2205
wenzelm@10003
  2206
* Isar: added 'nothing' --- the empty list of theorems;

  2236
recursive procedures, by David von Oheimb;
wenzelm@10164
  2237
wenzelm@10003
  2238
* HOL/Lambda: converted into new-style theory and document;
paulson@9542
  2239
wenzelm@10003
  2240
* HOL/ex/Multiquote: example of multiple nested quotations and
wenzelm@10003
  2241
anti-quotations -- basically a generalized version of de-Bruijn
wenzelm@10003
  2242
representation; very useful in avoiding lifting of operations;
wenzelm@8848
  2243
wenzelm@9612
  2244
* HOL/record: added general record equality rule to simpset; fixed
wenzelm@9612
  2245
select-update simplification procedure to handle extended records as
wenzelm@9612
  2246
well; admit "r" as field name;
paulson@9542
  2247
paulson@8967
  2248
* HOL: 0 is now overloaded over the new sort "zero", allowing its use with
paulson@8967
  2249
other numeric types and also as the identity of groups, rings, etc.;
paulson@8967
  2250
paulson@8967
  2251
* HOL: new axclass plus_ac0 for addition with the AC-laws and 0 as identity.
paulson@8967
  2252
Types nat and int belong to this axclass;
paulson@8967
  2253
wenzelm@10003
  2254
* HOL: greatly improved simplification involving numerals of type nat, int, real:
paulson@8788
  2255
   (i + #8 + j) = Suc k simplifies to  #7 + (i + j) = k
paulson@8832
  2256
   i*j + k + j*#3*i     simplifies to  #4*(i*j) + k
paulson@8832
  2257
  two terms #m*u and #n*u are replaced by #(m+n)*u
paulson@8832
  2258
    (where #m, #n and u can implicitly be 1; this is simproc combine_numerals)
paulson@8832
  2259
  and the term/formula #m*u+x ~~ #n*u+y simplifies simplifies to #(m-n)+x ~~ y
paulson@8832
  2260
    or x ~~ #(n-m)+y, where ~~ is one of = < <= or - (simproc cancel_numerals);
paulson@8736
  2261
wenzelm@10003
  2262
* HOL: meson_tac is available (previously in ex/meson.ML); it is a
wenzelm@10003
  2263
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
  2265
wenzelm@8848
  2266
* HOL: new version of "case_tac" subsumes both boolean case split and
wenzelm@8440
  2267
"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
  2269
wenzelm@8848
  2270
* HOL: simplification no longer dives into case-expressions: only the
wenzelm@10129
  2271
selector expression is simplified, but not the remaining arms; to
wenzelm@10129
  2272
enable full simplification of case-expressions for datatype t, you may
wenzelm@10129
  2273
remove t.weak_case_cong from the simpset, either globally (Delcongs
wenzelm@10129

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

wenzelm@8848
  2276
* HOL/recdef: the recursion equations generated by 'recdef' for
wenzelm@8848
  2277
function 'f' are now called f.simps instead of f.rules; if all
wenzelm@8848
  2278
termination conditions are proved automatically, these simplification
wenzelm@8848
  2279
rules are added to the simpset, as in primrec; rules may be named
wenzelm@8848
  2280
individually as well, resulting in a separate list of theorems for
wenzelm@8848
  2281
each equation;
wenzelm@8848
  2282
wenzelm@9489
  2283
* HOL/While is a new theory that provides a while-combinator. It
wenzelm@9489
  2284
permits the definition of tail-recursive functions without the
wenzelm@9489
  2285
provision of a termination measure. The latter is necessary once the
wenzelm@9489
  2286
invariant proof rule for while is applied.
nipkow@9457
  2287
wenzelm@10003
  2288

* HOL: new tactic induct_thm_tac: thm -> string -> int -> tactic
nipkow@9746
  2294
induct_tac th "x1 ... xn" expects th to have a conclusion of the form
nipkow@9746

* HOL/Real: "rabs" replaced by overloaded "abs" function;
nipkow@9737
  2298

  2299
* HOL: theory Sexp now in HOL/Induct examples (it used to be part of
wenzelm@10003
  2300
main HOL, but was unused);
nipkow@8626
  2301
wenzelm@10003
  2302
* HOL: fewer consts declared as global (e.g. have to refer to
wenzelm@10003
  2303
"Lfp.lfp" instead of "lfp" internally; affects ML packages only);
wenzelm@8887
  2304
wenzelm@10003
  2305
* HOL: tuned AST representation of nested pairs, avoiding bogus output
wenzelm@10003
  2306
in case of overlap with user translations (e.g. judgements over
wenzelm@10003
  2307
tuples); (note that the underlying logical represenation is still
wenzelm@10003
  2308
bogus);

paulson@9542
  2312
wenzelm@10003

wenzelm@10003
  2314
expressions over nat and int;
paulson@9542
  2315
wenzelm@10003
  2316
* ZF: new treatment of nat to minimize type-checking: all operators
wenzelm@10003
  2317
coerce their operands to a natural number using the function natify,
wenzelm@10003
  2318
making the algebraic laws unconditional;
paulson@9542
  2319
wenzelm@10003
  2320
* ZF: as above, for int: operators coerce their operands to an integer
wenzelm@10003
  2321
using the function intify;
paulson@9542
  2322
wenzelm@10003
  2323
* ZF: the integer library now contains many of the usual laws for the
wenzelm@10003
  2324
orderings, including $<=, and monotonicity laws for $+ and $*;
paulson@9542
  2325
wenzelm@10003
  2326
* ZF: new example ZF/ex/NatSum to demonstrate integer arithmetic
wenzelm@10003
  2327
simplification;
paulson@9388
  2328
wenzelm@10003
  2329
* FOL and ZF: AddIffs now available, giving theorems of the form P<->Q
wenzelm@10003

assumptions; note that auto_tac uses blast_tac internally as well;
wenzelm@10003
  2337
wenzelm@10003
  2338
* Provers: new functions rulify/rulify_no_asm: thm -> thm for turning
wenzelm@10003

outer -->/All/Ball into ==>/!!; qed_spec_mp now uses rulify_no_asm;
wenzelm@10003
  2340
wenzelm@9941
  2341

wenzelm@9941
  2342
explicit make_elim);
wenzelm@9941
  2343
wenzelm@10003
  2344
* Provers: Blast_tac now warns of and ignores "weak elimination rules" e.g.
wenzelm@10003
  2345
  [| inj ?f;          ?f ?x = ?f ?y; ?x = ?y ==> ?W |] ==> ?W
wenzelm@10003
  2346
use instead the strong form,
wenzelm@10003
  2347
  [| inj ?f; ~ ?W ==> ?f ?x = ?f ?y; ?x = ?y ==> ?W |] ==> ?W
wenzelm@10003
  2348
in HOL, FOL and ZF the function cla_make_elim will create such rules
wenzelm@10003
  2349
from destruct-rules;

wenzelm@9709

wenzelm@10003
  2362
wenzelm@9709
  2363
* system: compression of ML heaps images may now be controlled via -c
wenzelm@9709
  2364
option of isabelle and isatool usedir (currently only observed by
wenzelm@9709
  2365
Poly/ML);
wenzelm@8358
  2366
wenzelm@9981
  2367
* system: isatool installfonts may handle X-Symbol fonts as well (very
wenzelm@9981
  2368
useful for remote X11);
wenzelm@9981
  2369
wenzelm@9709
  2370
* system: provide TAGS file for Isabelle sources;
wenzelm@9052
  2371

wenzelm@9288
  2374
wenzelm@8994
  2375
* ML: renamed flags Syntax.trace_norm_ast to Syntax.trace_ast; global

  2376
timing flag supersedes proof_timing and Toplevel.trace;
wenzelm@8994
  2377
wenzelm@10003
  2378
* ML: new combinators |>> and |>>> for incremental transformations
wenzelm@10003
  2379
with secondary results (e.g. certain theory extensions):
wenzelm@10003
  2380
wenzelm@9330
  2381
* ML: PureThy.add_defs gets additional argument to indicate potential

paulson@6922
  2395

* HOL/datatype: mutual_induct_tac no longer exists --
berghofe@7847
  2406
  use induct_tac "x_1 ... x_n" instead of mutual_induct_tac ["x_1", ..., "x_n"]
berghofe@7847

wenzelm@6386
  2408
* HOL/typedef: fixed type inference for representing set; type
wenzelm@6386
  2409
arguments now have to occur explicitly on the rhs as type constraints;
wenzelm@6386
  2410
wenzelm@6269
  2411
* ZF: The con_defs part of an inductive definition may no longer refer
wenzelm@6269
  2412
to constants declared in the same theory;
nipkow@6057
  2413
wenzelm@6269
  2414
* HOL, ZF: the function mk_cases, generated by the inductive
wenzelm@6269
  2415
definition package, has lost an argument.  To simplify its result, it
wenzelm@6269
  2416
uses the default simpset instead of a supplied list of theorems.
paulson@6141

  2418
* HOL/List: the constructors of type list are now Nil and Cons;
wenzelm@7215
  2419
nipkow@7619
  2420
* Simplifier: the type of the infix ML functions
wenzelm@8729
  2421
        setSSolver addSSolver setSolver addSolver
nipkow@7619
  2422
is now  simpset * solver -> simpset  where `solver' is a new abstract type
nipkow@7619
  2423
for packaging solvers. A solver is created via
wenzelm@8729
  2424
        mk_solver: string -> (thm list -> int -> tactic) -> solver
nipkow@7619
  2425
where the string argument is only a comment.

  2430
* Provers/Arith/fast_lin_arith.ML contains a functor for creating a
wenzelm@6343
  2431
decision procedure for linear arithmetic. Currently it is used for
wenzelm@7593
  2432
types `nat', `int', and `real' in HOL (see below); it can, should and
wenzelm@7593
  2433
will be instantiated for other types and logics as well.
paulson@6069
  2434
nipkow@7324
  2435
* The simplifier now accepts rewrite rules with flexible heads, eg
nipkow@7324
  2436
     hom ?f ==> ?f(?x+?y) = ?f ?x + ?f ?y
nipkow@7324
  2437
  They are applied like any rule with a non-pattern lhs, i.e. by first-order
nipkow@7324
  2438
  matching.

  2443
* New Isabelle/Isar subsystem provides an alternative to traditional
wenzelm@7215
  2444
tactical theorem proving; together with the ProofGeneral/isar user
wenzelm@7215
  2445
interface it offers an interactive environment for developing human
wenzelm@7215
  2446
readable proof documents (Isar == Intelligible semi-automated
wenzelm@7886
  2447
reasoning); for further information see isatool doc isar-ref,
wenzelm@7986
  2448
src/HOL/Isar_examples and http://isabelle.in.tum.de/Isar/
wenzelm@7886
  2449
wenzelm@9612
  2450
* improved and simplified presentation of theories: better HTML markup
wenzelm@9612
  2451
(including colors), graph views in several sizes; isatool usedir now
wenzelm@9612
  2452
provides a proper interface for user theories (via -P option); actual
wenzelm@9612
  2453
document preparation based on (PDF)LaTeX is available as well (for
wenzelm@9612
  2454
new-style theories only); see isatool doc system for more information;
wenzelm@7215
  2455
wenzelm@7252
  2456
* native support for Proof General, both for classic Isabelle and
wenzelm@7986
  2457
Isabelle/Isar;
wenzelm@7215
  2458
wenzelm@7791
  2459
* ML function thm_deps visualizes dependencies of theorems and lemmas,
wenzelm@7791
  2460
using the graph browser tool;
wenzelm@7791
  2461
wenzelm@6751
  2462
* Isabelle manuals now also available as PDF;
wenzelm@6751
  2463
wenzelm@6449
  2464
* theory loader rewritten from scratch (may not be fully
wenzelm@6449
  2465
bug-compatible); old loadpath variable has been replaced by show_path,
wenzelm@6671
  2466
add_path, del_path, reset_path functions; new operations such as
wenzelm@7593
  2467
update_thy, touch_thy, remove_thy, use/update_thy_only (see also
wenzelm@7593
  2468
isatool doc ref);
wenzelm@6449
  2469
wenzelm@7215
  2470
* improved isatool install: option -k creates KDE application icon,
wenzelm@7215
  2471
option -p DIR installs standalone binaries;
wenzelm@7215
  2472
wenzelm@7215
  2473
* added ML_PLATFORM setting (useful for cross-platform installations);
wenzelm@7215
  2474
more robust handling of platform specific ML images for SML/NJ;
wenzelm@7215
  2475
wenzelm@7886
  2476
* the settings environment is now statically scoped, i.e. it is never
wenzelm@7986
  2477
created again in sub-processes invoked from isabelle, isatool, or
wenzelm@7886
  2478
Isabelle;
wenzelm@7886
  2479
wenzelm@7215
  2480
* path element specification '~~' refers to '$ISABELLE_HOME';
wenzelm@7215
  2481
wenzelm@6343
  2482
* in locales, the "assumes" and "defines" parts may be omitted if
wenzelm@6343
  2483
empty;
wenzelm@5973
  2484
wenzelm@6269
  2485
* new print_mode "xsymbols" for extended symbol support (e.g. genuine
wenzelm@6269
  2486
long arrows);
wenzelm@6259
  2487
wenzelm@6343
  2488
* new print_mode "HTML";
wenzelm@6343
  2489
wenzelm@6343
  2490
* new flag show_tags controls display of tags of theorems (which are
wenzelm@6343
  2491
basically just comments that may be attached by some tools);
wenzelm@6343
  2492
wenzelm@6461
  2493
* Isamode 2.6 requires patch to accomodate change of Isabelle font
wenzelm@6461

wenzelm@7450
  2507
* function bind_thms stores lists of theorems (cf. bind_thm);
wenzelm@7450
  2508
wenzelm@7593
  2509
* new shorthand tactics ftac, eatac, datac, fatac;
wenzelm@7593
  2510
wenzelm@7593
  2511
* qed (and friends) now accept "" as result name; in that case the
wenzelm@7986
  2512
theorem is not stored, but proper checks and presentation of the
wenzelm@7986
  2513
result still apply;
wenzelm@7593
  2514
wenzelm@7805
  2515
* theorem database now also indexes constants "Trueprop", "all",
wenzelm@7805
  2516
"==>", "=="; thus thms_containing, findI etc. may retrieve more rules;
