New in this Isabelle version
wenzelm@27122

wenzelm@27599

*** General ***
wenzelm@27599
     8
wenzelm@30106
     9
* The main reference manuals (isar-ref, implementation, system) have
wenzelm@30106
    10
been updated and extended.  Formally checked references as hyperlinks
wenzelm@30106
    11
are now available in uniform manner.
wenzelm@30106
    12
wenzelm@28504
    13
* Simplified main Isabelle executables, with less surprises on
wenzelm@28504
    14
case-insensitive file-systems (such as Mac OS).
wenzelm@28504
    15
wenzelm@28504
    16
  - The main Isabelle tool wrapper is now called "isabelle" instead of
wenzelm@28504
    17
    "isatool."
wenzelm@28504
    18
wenzelm@28504
    19
  - The former "isabelle" alias for "isabelle-process" has been
wenzelm@28504
    20
    removed (should rarely occur to regular users).
wenzelm@28504
    21
wenzelm@28915
    22
  - The former "isabelle-interface" and its alias "Isabelle" have been
wenzelm@28915
    23
    removed (interfaces are now regular Isabelle tools).
wenzelm@28504
    24
wenzelm@28504
    25
Within scripts and make files, the Isabelle environment variables
wenzelm@28504
    26
ISABELLE_TOOL and ISABELLE_PROCESS replace old ISATOOL and ISABELLE,
wenzelm@28504
    27
respectively.  (The latter are still available as legacy feature.)
wenzelm@28504
    28
wenzelm@28915
    29
The old isabelle-interface wrapper could react in confusing ways if
wenzelm@28915
    30
the interface was uninstalled or changed otherwise.  Individual
wenzelm@28915
    31
interface tool configuration is now more explicit, see also the
wenzelm@28915
    32
Isabelle system manual.  In particular, Proof General is now available
wenzelm@28915
    33
via "isabelle emacs".
wenzelm@28504
    34
wenzelm@28504
    35
INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt derivative scripts.  Users may need to
wenzelm@28504
    36
purge installed copies of Isabelle executables and re-run "isabelle
wenzelm@28504
    37
install -p ...", or use symlinks.
wenzelm@28504
    38
wenzelm@28914
    39
* The default for ISABELLE_HOME_USER is now ~/.isabelle instead of the
wenzelm@28914
    40
old ~/isabelle, which was slightly non-standard and apt cause
wenzelm@28914
    41
surprises on case-insensitive file-systems.
wenzelm@28914
    42
wenzelm@28914
    43
INCOMPATIBILITY, need to move existing ~/isabelle/etc,
wenzelm@28914
    44
~/isabelle/heaps, ~/isabelle/browser_info to the new place.  Special
wenzelm@28914
    45
care is required when using older releases of Isabelle.  Note that
wenzelm@28914
    46
ISABELLE_HOME_USER can be changed in Isabelle/etc/settings of any
wenzelm@28914
    47
Isabelle distribution.
wenzelm@28914
    48
wenzelm@29161
    49
* Proofs of fully specified statements are run in parallel on
wenzelm@29161
    50
multi-core systems.  A speedup factor of 2-3 can be expected on a
wenzelm@29161
    51
regular 4-core machine, if the initial heap space is made reasonably
wenzelm@29162
    52
large (cf. Poly/ML option -H).  [Poly/ML 5.2.1 or later]
wenzelm@29161
    53
wenzelm@27599
    54
* Generalized Isar history, with support for linear undo, direct state
wenzelm@27599
    55
addressing etc.
haftmann@27104
    56
wenzelm@27191
    57
* Recovered hiding of consts, which was accidentally broken in
wenzelm@27191
    58
Isabelle2007.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY, ``hide const c'' really
wenzelm@27191
    59
makes c inaccessible; consider using ``hide (open) const c'' instead.
wenzelm@27191
    60
wenzelm@27599
    61
* Removed exotic 'token_translation' command.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use ML
wenzelm@27599
    62
interface instead.
wenzelm@27599
    63
wenzelm@29161
    64
* There is a new syntactic category "float_const" for signed decimal
wenzelm@29161
    65
fractions (e.g. 123.45 or -123.45).
nipkow@28964
    66
wenzelm@30163
    67
* New prover for coherent logic (see src/Tools/coherent.ML).
wenzelm@30163
    68
wenzelm@27599
    69
wenzelm@27599
    70
*** Pure ***
wenzelm@27599
    71
haftmann@29608
    72
* Class declaration: sc. "base sort" must not be given in import list
haftmann@29608
    73
any longer but is inferred from the specification.  Particularly in HOL,
haftmann@29608
    74
write
haftmann@29608
    75
haftmann@29608
    76
    class foo = ...     instead of      class foo = type + ...
haftmann@29608
    77
haftmann@29616
    78
* Type binding gradually replaces formerly used type bstring for names
haftmann@28965
    79
to be bound.  Name space interface for declarations has been simplified:
haftmann@28965
    80
haftmann@28965
    81
  NameSpace.declare: NameSpace.naming
haftmann@29616
    82
    -> binding -> NameSpace.T -> string * NameSpace.T
haftmann@28965
    83
  NameSpace.bind: NameSpace.naming
haftmann@29616
    84
    -> binding * 'a -> 'a NameSpace.table -> string * 'a NameSpace.table
haftmann@28965
    85
         (*exception Symtab.DUP*)
haftmann@28965
    86
haftmann@28965
    87
See further modules src/Pure/General/binding.ML and
haftmann@28965
    88
src/Pure/General/name_space.ML
haftmann@28965
    89
haftmann@28952
    90
* Module moves in repository:
haftmann@28952
    91
    src/Pure/Tools/value.ML ~> src/Tools/
haftmann@28952
    92
    src/Pure/Tools/quickcheck.ML ~> src/Tools/
haftmann@28952
    93
wenzelm@28856
    94
* Slightly more coherent Pure syntax, with updated documentation in
wenzelm@28856
    95
isar-ref manual.  Removed locales meta_term_syntax and
wenzelm@28856
    96
meta_conjunction_syntax: TERM and &&& (formerly &&) are now permanent,
wenzelm@28856
    97
INCOMPATIBILITY in rare situations.
wenzelm@28856
    98
wenzelm@28629
    99
* Goal-directed proof now enforces strict proof irrelevance wrt. sort
wenzelm@28629
   100
hypotheses.  Sorts required in the course of reasoning need to be
wenzelm@28629
   101
covered by the constraints in the initial statement, completed by the
wenzelm@28629
   102
type instance information of the background theory.  Non-trivial sort
wenzelm@28629
   103
hypotheses, which rarely occur in practice, may be specified via
wenzelm@28633
   104
vacuous propositions of the form SORT_CONSTRAINT('a::c).  For example:
wenzelm@28629
   105
wenzelm@28629
   106
  lemma assumes "SORT_CONSTRAINT('a::empty)" shows False ...
wenzelm@28629
   107
wenzelm@28629
   108
The result contains an implicit sort hypotheses as before --
wenzelm@28631
   109
SORT_CONSTRAINT premises are eliminated as part of the canonical rule
wenzelm@28631
   110
normalization.
wenzelm@28629
   111
wenzelm@28178
   112
* Changed defaults for unify configuration options:
wenzelm@28178
   113
wenzelm@28178
   114
  unify_trace_bound = 50 (formerly 25)
wenzelm@28178
   115
  unify_search_bound = 60 (formerly 30)
wenzelm@28178
   116
wenzelm@30106
   117
* Different bookkeeping for code equations (INCOMPATIBILITY):
wenzelm@30106
   118
wenzelm@30106
   119
  a) On theory merge, the last set of code equations for a particular
wenzelm@30106
   120
     constant is taken (in accordance with the policy applied by other
wenzelm@30106
   121
     parts of the code generator framework).
wenzelm@30106
   122
wenzelm@30106
   123
  b) Code equations stemming from explicit declarations (e.g. code
wenzelm@30106
   124
     attribute) gain priority over default code equations stemming
wenzelm@30106
   125
     from definition, primrec, fun etc.
wenzelm@30106
   126
wenzelm@30106
   127
* Global versions of theorems stemming from classes do not carry a
wenzelm@30106
   128
parameter prefix any longer.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@28058
   129
ballarin@28710
   130
* Dropped locale element "includes".  This is a major INCOMPATIBILITY.
ballarin@28710
   131
In existing theorem specifications replace the includes element by the
wenzelm@30106
   132
respective context elements of the included locale, omitting those
wenzelm@30106
   133
that are already present in the theorem specification.  Multiple
wenzelm@30106
   134
assume elements of a locale should be replaced by a single one
wenzelm@30106
   135
involving the locale predicate.  In the proof body, declarations (most
wenzelm@30106
   136
notably theorems) may be regained by interpreting the respective
wenzelm@30106
   137
locales in the proof context as required (command "interpret").
wenzelm@30106
   138
ballarin@28710
   139
If using "includes" in replacement of a target solely because the
ballarin@28710
   140
parameter types in the theorem are not as general as in the target,
wenzelm@30106
   141
consider declaring a new locale with additional type constraints on
wenzelm@30106
   142
the parameters (context element "constrains").
ballarin@28710
   143
ballarin@29253
   144
* Dropped "locale (open)".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
ballarin@27761
   145
ballarin@28085
   146
* Interpretation commands no longer attempt to simplify goal.
ballarin@27761
   147
INCOMPATIBILITY: in rare situations the generated goal differs.  Use
ballarin@27761
   148
methods intro_locales and unfold_locales to clarify.
haftmann@27681
   149
ballarin@28085
   150
* Interpretation commands no longer accept interpretation attributes.
ballarin@28085
   151
INCOMPATBILITY.
ballarin@28085
   152
wenzelm@30106
   153
* Complete re-implementation of locales.  INCOMPATIBILITY.  The most
wenzelm@30106
   154
important changes are listed below.  See documentation (forthcoming)
wenzelm@30106
   155
and tutorial (also forthcoming) for details.
ballarin@29253
   156
ballarin@29253
   157
- In locale expressions, instantiation replaces renaming.  Parameters
ballarin@29253
   158
must be declared in a for clause.  To aid compatibility with previous
ballarin@29253
   159
parameter inheritance, in locale declarations, parameters that are not
ballarin@29253
   160
'touched' (instantiation position "_" or omitted) are implicitly added
ballarin@29253
   161
with their syntax at the beginning of the for clause.
ballarin@29253
   162
ballarin@29253
   163
- Syntax from abbreviations and definitions in locales is available in
ballarin@29253
   164
locale expressions and context elements.  The latter is particularly
ballarin@29253
   165
useful in locale declarations.
ballarin@29253
   166
ballarin@29253
   167
- More flexible mechanisms to qualify names generated by locale
ballarin@29253
   168
expressions.  Qualifiers (prefixes) may be specified in locale
wenzelm@30106
   169
expressions.  Available are normal qualifiers (syntax "name:") and
wenzelm@30106
   170
strict qualifiers (syntax "name!:").  The latter must occur in name
wenzelm@30106
   171
references and are useful to avoid accidental hiding of names, the
wenzelm@30106
   172
former are optional.  Qualifiers derived from the parameter names of a
wenzelm@30106
   173
locale are no longer generated.
wenzelm@30106
   174
wenzelm@30106
   175
- "sublocale l < e" replaces "interpretation l < e".  The
wenzelm@30106
   176
instantiation clause in "interpretation" and "interpret" (square
wenzelm@30106
   177
brackets) is no longer available.  Use locale expressions.
ballarin@29253
   178
ballarin@29253
   179
- When converting proof scripts, be sure to replace qualifiers in
ballarin@29253
   180
"interpretation" and "interpret" by strict qualifiers.  Qualifiers in
ballarin@29253
   181
locale expressions range over a single locale instance only.
ballarin@29253
   182
haftmann@27651
   183
* Command 'instance': attached definitions no longer accepted.
wenzelm@27141
   184
INCOMPATIBILITY, use proper 'instantiation' target.
haftmann@27104
   185
haftmann@27104
   186
* Keyword 'code_exception' now named 'code_abort'.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@27104
   187
wenzelm@28114
   188
* The 'axiomatization' command now only works within a global theory
wenzelm@28114
   189
context.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@28114
   190
wenzelm@30106
   191
* New find_theorems criterion "solves" matching theorems that directly
wenzelm@30106
   192
solve the current goal. Try "find_theorems solves".
kleing@29861
   193
kleing@29861
   194
* Added an auto solve option, which can be enabled through the
kleing@29883
   195
ProofGeneral Isabelle settings menu (disabled by default).
kleing@29861
   196
 
kleing@29883
   197
When enabled, find_theorems solves is called whenever a new lemma is
kleing@29883
   198
stated. Any theorems that could solve the lemma directly are listed
kleing@29883
   199
underneath the goal.
kleing@29883
   200
wenzelm@30106
   201
* New command find_consts searches for constants based on type and
wenzelm@30106
   202
name patterns, e.g.
kleing@29883
   203
kleing@29883
   204
    find_consts "_ => bool"
kleing@29883
   205
wenzelm@30106
   206
By default, matching is against subtypes, but it may be restricted to
wenzelm@30106
   207
the whole type. Searching by name is possible. Multiple queries are
wenzelm@30106
   208
conjunctive and queries may be negated by prefixing them with a
wenzelm@30106
   209
hyphen:
kleing@29883
   210
kleing@29883
   211
    find_consts strict: "_ => bool" name: "Int" -"int => int"
kleing@29861
   212
haftmann@27104
   213
wenzelm@27381
   214
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@27381
   215
wenzelm@27381
   216
* Antiquotation @{lemma} now imitates a regular terminal proof,
wenzelm@27392
   217
demanding keyword 'by' and supporting the full method expression
wenzelm@27519
   218
syntax just like the Isar command 'by'.
wenzelm@27381
   219
wenzelm@27381
   220
haftmann@27104
   221
*** HOL ***
haftmann@27104
   222
haftmann@30298
   223
* New predicate "strict_mono" classifies strict functions on partial orders.
haftmann@30298
   224
With strict functions on linear orders, reasoning about (in)equalities is
haftmann@30300
   225
facilitated by theorems "strict_mono_eq", "strict_mono_less_eq" and "strict_mono_less".
haftmann@30298
   226
haftmann@29797
   227
* Auxiliary class "itself" has disappeared -- classes without any parameter
haftmann@29797
   228
are treated as expected by the 'class' command.
haftmann@29797
   229
haftmann@29823
   230
* Leibnitz's Series for Pi and the arcus tangens and logarithm series.
haftmann@29823
   231
haftmann@29823
   232
* Common decision procedures (Cooper, MIR, Ferrack, Approximation, Dense_Linear_Order)
haftmann@29823
   233
now in directory HOL/Decision_Procs.
haftmann@29823
   234
haftmann@29823
   235
* Theory HOL/Decisioin_Procs/Approximation.thy provides the new proof method
haftmann@29823
   236
"approximation".  It proves formulas on real values by using interval arithmetic.
hoelzl@29810
   237
In the formulas are also the transcendental functions sin, cos, tan, atan, ln,
haftmann@29823
   238
exp and the constant pi are allowed.  For examples see HOL/ex/ApproximationEx.thy.
haftmann@29823
   239
haftmann@29823
   240
* Theory "Reflection" now resides in HOL/Library.
haftmann@29650
   241
haftmann@29628
   242
* Entry point to Word library now simply named "Word".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@29628
   243
haftmann@29197
   244
* Made source layout more coherent with logical distribution

* If methods "eval" and "evaluation" encounter a structured proof state
haftmann@28741
   300
with !!/==>, only the conclusion is evaluated to True (if possible),
haftmann@28741
   301
avoiding strange error messages.
haftmann@28741
   302
haftmann@28741
   303
* Simplifier: simproc for let expressions now unfolds if bound variable
haftmann@28741
   304
occurs at most one time in let expression body.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@28741
   305
haftmann@28685
   306
* New classes "top" and "bot" with corresponding operations "top" and "bot"
haftmann@28685
   307
in theory Orderings;  instantiation of class "complete_lattice" requires
haftmann@28685
   308
instantiation of classes "top" and "bot".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@28685
   309
haftmann@28685
   310
* Changed definition lemma "less_fun_def" in order to provide an instance
haftmann@28685
   311
for preorders on functions;  use lemma "less_le" instead.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@28685
   312
wenzelm@28604
   313
* Unified theorem tables for both code code generators.  Thus
wenzelm@28604
   314
[code func] has disappeared and only [code] remains.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@28604
   315
haftmann@28685
   316
* Constants "undefined" and "default" replace "arbitrary".  Usually
haftmann@28685
   317
"undefined" is the right choice to replace "arbitrary", though logically
haftmann@28685
   318
there is no difference.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@28604
   319
wenzelm@28604
   320
* Generic ATP manager for Sledgehammer, based on ML threads instead of
wenzelm@28605
   321
Posix processes.  Avoids potentially expensive forking of the ML
wenzelm@28605
   322
process.  New thread-based implementation also works on non-Unix
wenzelm@28605
   323
platforms (Cygwin).  Provers are no longer hardwired, but defined
wenzelm@28606
   324
within the theory via plain ML wrapper functions.  Basic Sledgehammer
wenzelm@30106
   325
commands are covered in the isar-ref manual.
wenzelm@28604
   326
wenzelm@28604
   327
* Wrapper scripts for remote SystemOnTPTP service allows to use
wenzelm@28475
   328
sledgehammer without local ATP installation (Vampire etc.).  See also
wenzelm@28475
   329
ISABELLE_HOME/contrib/SystemOnTPTP and the VAMPIRE_HOME setting

   331
also src/HOL/ATP_Linkup.thy.
wenzelm@28474
   332
haftmann@28350
   333
* Normalization by evaluation now allows non-leftlinear equations.
haftmann@28350
   334
Declare with attribute [code nbe].
haftmann@28350
   335
haftmann@28350
   336
* Command "value" now integrates different evaluation
wenzelm@28248
   337
mechanisms.  The result of the first successful evaluation mechanism
wenzelm@28248
   338
is printed.  In square brackets a particular named evaluation
wenzelm@28248
   339
mechanisms may be specified (currently, [SML], [code] or [nbe]).  See
wenzelm@28248
   340
further src/HOL/ex/Eval_Examples.thy.
haftmann@28227
   341
krauss@29125
   342
* New method "sizechange" to automate termination proofs using (a
krauss@29182
   343
modification of) the size-change principle. Requires SAT solver. See
krauss@29182
   344
src/HOL/ex/Termination.thy for examples.
krauss@29125
   345
wenzelm@28088
   346
* HOL/Orderings: class "wellorder" moved here, with explicit induction
wenzelm@28088
   347
rule "less_induct" as assumption.  For instantiation of "wellorder" by
wenzelm@28088
   348
means of predicate "wf", use rule wf_wellorderI.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@27823
   349
wenzelm@27793
   350
* HOL/Orderings: added class "preorder" as superclass of "order".
wenzelm@27793
   351
INCOMPATIBILITY: Instantiation proofs for order, linorder
wenzelm@27793
   352
etc. slightly changed.  Some theorems named order_class.* now named
wenzelm@27793
   353
preorder_class.*.
wenzelm@27793
   354
nipkow@30198
   355
* HOL/Relation:
nipkow@30198
   356
Renamed "refl" to "refl_on", "reflexive" to "refl, "diag" to "Id_on".
nipkow@30198
   357
nipkow@28855
   358
* HOL/Finite_Set: added a new fold combinator of type
nipkow@28855
   359
  ('a => 'b => 'b) => 'b => 'a set => 'b
nipkow@28855
   360
Occasionally this is more convenient than the old fold combinator which is
nipkow@28855
   361
now defined in terms of the new one and renamed to fold_image.
nipkow@28855
   362
nipkow@29671
   363
* HOL/Ring_and_Field and HOL/OrderedGroup: The lemmas "group_simps" and
nipkow@29671
   364
"ring_simps" have been replaced by "algebra_simps" (which can be extended with
nipkow@29671
   365
further lemmas!). At the moment both still exist but the former will disappear
nipkow@29671
   366
at some point.
nipkow@29671
   367
huffman@30273
   368
* HOL/Power: Lemma power_Suc is now declared as a simp rule in class
huffman@30273
   369
recpower.  Type-specific simp rules for various recpower types have
huffman@30273
   370
been removed.  INCOMPATIBILITY.  Rename old lemmas as follows:
huffman@30273
   371

   381
* HOL/Ring_and_Field and HOL/Divides: Definition of "op dvd" has been
wenzelm@27793
   382
moved to separate class dvd in Ring_and_Field; a couple of lemmas on
wenzelm@27793
   383
dvd has been generalized to class comm_semiring_1.  Likewise a bunch
wenzelm@27793
   384
of lemmas from Divides has been generalized from nat to class
wenzelm@27793
   385
semiring_div.  INCOMPATIBILITY.  This involves the following theorem
wenzelm@27793
   386
renames resulting from duplicate elimination:

* HOL/IntDiv: removed many lemmas that are instances of class-based
nipkow@30044
   397
generalizations (from Divides and Ring_and_Field).
nipkow@30044
   398

zlcm (for int); carried together from various gcd/lcm developements in

   448
the HOL Distribution.  zgcd and zlcm replace former igcd and ilcm;
huffman@30176
   449
corresponding theorems renamed accordingly.  INCOMPATIBILITY.  To
wenzelm@27599
   450
recover tupled syntax, use syntax declarations like:
haftmann@27556
   451
haftmann@27556
   452
    hide (open) const gcd
haftmann@27556
   453

   454
      "gcd == (%(a, b). GCD.gcd a b)"

    notation (output)

   456
      GCD.gcd ("gcd '(_, _')")
haftmann@27556
   457
haftmann@27556
   458
(analogously for lcm, zgcd, zlcm).
haftmann@27556
   459
haftmann@27556
   460
* HOL/Real/Rational: 'Fract k 0' now equals '0'.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@27551
   461
nipkow@28964
   462
* The real numbers offer decimal input syntax: 12.34 is translated into
huffman@30176

  1234/10^2. This translation is not reversed upon output.
nipkow@28964
   464
haftmann@27651
   465
* New ML antiquotation @{code}: takes constant as argument, generates
haftmann@27651
   466
corresponding code in background and inserts name of the corresponding
haftmann@27651
   467
resulting ML value/function/datatype constructor binding in place.
haftmann@27651
   468
All occurrences of @{code} with a single ML block are generated
haftmann@27651
   469
simultaneously.  Provides a generic and safe interface for
haftmann@27651
   470
instrumentalizing code generation.  See HOL/ex/Code_Antiq for a toy
haftmann@27651
   471
example, or HOL/Complex/ex/ReflectedFerrack for a more ambitious
haftmann@27651
   472
application.  In future you ought refrain from ad-hoc compiling
haftmann@27651
   473
generated SML code on the ML toplevel.  Note that (for technical
haftmann@27651
   474
reasons) @{code} cannot refer to constants for which user-defined
haftmann@27651
   475
serializations are set.  Refer to the corresponding ML counterpart
haftmann@27651
   476
directly in that cases.
haftmann@27651

haftmann@27424
   478
* Integrated image HOL-Complex with HOL.  Entry points Main.thy and
haftmann@27424
   479
Complex_Main.thy remain as they are.
haftmann@27424
   480
wenzelm@27599
   481
* New image HOL-Plain provides a minimal HOL with the most important
wenzelm@27599
   482
tools available (inductive, datatype, primrec, ...).  By convention
wenzelm@27599
   483
the corresponding theory Plain should be ancestor of every further
wenzelm@27599
   484
(library) theory.  Some library theories now have ancestor Plain
wenzelm@27599
   485
(instead of Main), thus theory Main occasionally has to be imported
wenzelm@27599
   486
explicitly.
haftmann@27421
   487
wenzelm@28248
   488
* The metis method now fails in the usual manner, rather than raising
wenzelm@28248
   489
an exception, if it determines that it cannot prove the theorem.
paulson@28233
   490
paulson@28700
   491
* The metis method no longer fails because the theorem is too trivial
paulson@28700
   492
(contains the empty clause).
paulson@28700
   493
wenzelm@27324
   494
* Methods "case_tac" and "induct_tac" now refer to the very same rules
wenzelm@27324
   495
as the structured Isar versions "cases" and "induct", cf. the
wenzelm@27324
   496
corresponding "cases" and "induct" attributes.  Mutual induction rules
wenzelm@27324
   497
are now presented as a list of individual projections
wenzelm@27324
   498
(e.g. foo_bar.inducts for types foo and bar); the old format with
wenzelm@27324
   499
explicit HOL conjunction is no longer supported.  INCOMPATIBILITY, in
wenzelm@27324
   500
rare situations a different rule is selected --- notably nested tuple
wenzelm@27324
   501
elimination instead of former prod.exhaust: use explicit (case_tac t
wenzelm@27324
   502
rule: prod.exhaust) here.
wenzelm@27122
   503
wenzelm@27141
   504
* Attributes "cases", "induct", "coinduct" support "del" option.
wenzelm@27141
   505
wenzelm@27122
   506
* Removed fact "case_split_thm", which duplicates "case_split".

   574
some rare cases the new simproc may fail to solve subgoals that the

wenzelm@29161
   585
* High-level support for concurrent ML programming, see
wenzelm@29161
   586
src/Pure/Cuncurrent.  The data-oriented model of "future values" is
wenzelm@29161
   587
particularly convenient to organize independent functional
wenzelm@29161
   588
computations.  The concept of "synchronized variables" provides a
wenzelm@29161
   589
higher-order interface for components with shared state, avoiding the
wenzelm@29162
   590
delicate details of mutexes and condition variables.  [Poly/ML 5.2.1
wenzelm@29162
   591
or later]
wenzelm@29161
   592
wenzelm@28294
   593
* Simplified ML oracle interface Thm.add_oracle promotes 'a -> cterm
wenzelm@28294
   594
to 'a -> thm, while results are always tagged with an authentic oracle
wenzelm@28294
   595
name.  The Isar command 'oracle' is now polymorphic, no argument type
wenzelm@28294
   596
is specified.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to simplify existing oracle code
wenzelm@28294
   597
accordingly.  Note that extra performance may be gained by producing
wenzelm@28294
   598
the cterm carefully, avoiding slow Thm.cterm_of.
wenzelm@28294
   599
wenzelm@28282
   600
* ML bindings produced via Isar commands are stored within the Isar
wenzelm@28282
   601
context (theory or proof).  Consequently, commands like 'use' and 'ML'
wenzelm@28282
   602
become thread-safe and work with undo as expected (concerning
wenzelm@28282
   603
top-level bindings, not side-effects on global references).
wenzelm@28282
   604
INCOMPATIBILITY, need to provide proper Isar context when invoking the
wenzelm@28282
   605
compiler at runtime; really global bindings need to be given outside a
wenzelm@28282
   606
theory. [Poly/ML 5.2 or later]
wenzelm@28282
   607
wenzelm@28282
   608
* Command 'ML_prf' is analogous to 'ML' but works within a proof
wenzelm@28282
   609
context. Top-level ML bindings are stored within the proof context in
wenzelm@28282
   610
a purely sequential fashion, disregarding the nested proof structure.
wenzelm@28282
   611
ML bindings introduced by 'ML_prf' are discarded at the end of the
wenzelm@28282
   612
proof.  [Poly/ML 5.2 or later]
wenzelm@28282
   613
wenzelm@28099
   614
* Generic Toplevel.add_hook interface allows to analyze the result of
wenzelm@28103
   615
transactions.  E.g. see src/Pure/ProofGeneral/proof_general_pgip.ML
wenzelm@28103

   619
* Name bindings in higher specification mechanisms (notably
wenzelm@28088
   620
LocalTheory.define, LocalTheory.note, and derived packages) are now
wenzelm@28088
   621
formalized as type Name.binding, replacing old bstring.
wenzelm@28088
   622
INCOMPATIBILITY, need to wrap strings via Name.binding function, see
wenzelm@28088
   623
also Name.name_of.  Packages should pass name bindings given by the
wenzelm@28088
   624
user to underlying specification mechanisms; this enables precise
wenzelm@28088
   625
tracking of source positions, for example.
wenzelm@28088
   626
wenzelm@28089
   627
* Result facts (from PureThy.note_thms, ProofContext.note_thms,
wenzelm@28089
   628
LocalTheory.note etc.) now refer to the *full* internal name, not the
wenzelm@28089
   629
bstring as before.  INCOMPATIBILITY, not detected by ML type-checking!
wenzelm@28089
   630
wenzelm@27246
   631
* Rules and tactics that read instantiations (read_instantiate,
wenzelm@27246
   632
res_inst_tac, thin_tac, subgoal_tac etc.) now demand a proper proof
wenzelm@27246
   633
context, which is required for parsing and type-checking.  Moreover,
wenzelm@27246
   634
the variables are specified as plain indexnames, not string encodings

* Unused theorems can be found using the new command 'unused_thms'.
berghofe@26681
   723
There are three ways of invoking it:
berghofe@26681
   724
berghofe@26681
   725
(1) unused_thms
berghofe@26681
   726
     Only finds unused theorems in the current theory.

(2) unused_thms thy_1 ... thy_n -
berghofe@26681

     Finds unused theorems in the current theory and all of its ancestors,
berghofe@26681
   730
     excluding the theories thy_1 ... thy_n and all of their ancestors.
berghofe@26681
   731
berghofe@26681
   732
(3) unused_thms thy_1 ... thy_n - thy'_1 ... thy'_m
berghofe@26681

berghofe@26681
   735
     their ancestors.
berghofe@26681
   736
wenzelm@26718
   737
In order to increase the readability of the list produced by
wenzelm@26718
   738
unused_thms, theorems that have been created by a particular instance
wenzelm@26874
   739
of a theory command such as 'inductive' or 'function' are considered
wenzelm@26874
   740
to belong to the same "group", meaning that if at least one theorem in
wenzelm@26718
   741
this group is used, the other theorems in the same group are no longer
wenzelm@26718
   742
reported as unused.  Moreover, if all theorems in the group are
wenzelm@26718
   743
unused, only one theorem in the group is displayed.
wenzelm@26718
   744
wenzelm@26718
   745
Note that proof objects have to be switched on in order for
wenzelm@26718
   746
unused_thms to work properly (i.e. !proofs must be >= 1, which is
wenzelm@26874

INCOMPATIBILITY, object-logics depending on former Pure require
wenzelm@26955

depending on former CPure need to refer to Pure.
wenzelm@26650
   765
wenzelm@26495
   766
* Commands 'use' and 'ML' are now purely functional, operating on
wenzelm@26479
   767
theory/local_theory.  Removed former 'ML_setup' (on theory), use 'ML'
wenzelm@26479

   801
obsolete thumbpdf setup (contemporary PDF viewers do this on the

out some operations that are done internally by the function package

* More flexible generation of measure functions for termination
wenzelm@27067
   839
proofs: Measure functions can be declared by proving a rule of the
wenzelm@27067
   840
form "is_measure f" and giving it the [measure_function] attribute.
wenzelm@27067
   841
The "is_measure" predicate is logically meaningless (always true), and
wenzelm@27067
   842
just guides the heuristic.  To find suitable measure functions, the
wenzelm@27067
   843
termination prover sets up the goal "is_measure ?f" of the appropriate
wenzelm@27067
   844
type and generates all solutions by prolog-style backwards proof using
wenzelm@27067
   845
the declared rules.
wenzelm@27067
   846
wenzelm@27067
   847
This setup also deals with rules like 
wenzelm@27067
   848
wenzelm@27067
   849
  "is_measure f ==> is_measure (list_size f)"
wenzelm@27067
   850
wenzelm@27067
   851
which accommodates nested datatypes that recurse through lists.
wenzelm@27067
   852
Similar rules are predeclared for products and option types.

* Removed obsolete "use_legacy_bindings" function.
wenzelm@26188
  1054
wenzelm@25737
  1055
* The ``print mode'' is now a thread-local value derived from a global
wenzelm@25737
  1056
template (the former print_mode reference), thus access becomes
wenzelm@25737
  1057
non-critical.  The global print_mode reference is for session
wenzelm@25737
  1058
management only; user-code should use print_mode_value,
wenzelm@25737
  1059
print_mode_active, PrintMode.setmp etc.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@25737
  1060
wenzelm@26874
  1061
* Functions system/system_out provide a robust way to invoke external
wenzelm@29161
  1062
shell commands, with propagation of interrupts (requires Poly/ML
wenzelm@29161
  1063
5.2.1).  Do not use OS.Process.system etc. from the basis library!

wenzelm@17754
  1109
*** General ***
wenzelm@17754
  1110
wenzelm@22826
  1111
* More uniform information about legacy features, notably a
wenzelm@22826
  1112
warning/error of "Legacy feature: ...", depending on the state of the
wenzelm@23367
  1113
tolerate_legacy_features flag (default true). FUTURE INCOMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@23367
  1114
legacy features will disappear eventually.
wenzelm@22826
  1115
wenzelm@17918
  1116
* Theory syntax: the header format ``theory A = B + C:'' has been
wenzelm@17918
  1117
discontinued in favour of ``theory A imports B C begin''.  Use isatool
wenzelm@17918
  1118
fixheaders to convert existing theory files.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17918
  1119
wenzelm@17918
  1120
* Theory syntax: the old non-Isar theory file format has been
wenzelm@17918
  1121
discontinued altogether.  Note that ML proof scripts may still be used
wenzelm@17918
  1122
with Isar theories; migration is usually quite simple with the ML
wenzelm@17918
  1123
function use_legacy_bindings.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17918
  1124
wenzelm@22871
  1125
* Theory syntax: some popular names (e.g. 'class', 'declaration',
wenzelm@22871
  1126
'fun', 'help', 'if') are now keywords.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use double
wenzelm@22871
  1127
quotes.
wenzelm@19814
  1128
wenzelm@23888
  1129
* Theory loader: be more serious about observing the static theory
wenzelm@23888
  1130
header specifications (including optional directories), but not the
wenzelm@24172
  1131
accidental file locations of previously successful loads.  The strict
wenzelm@24172
  1132
update policy of former update_thy is now already performed by
wenzelm@24172
  1133
use_thy, so the former has been removed; use_thys updates several
wenzelm@24172
  1134
theories simultaneously, just as 'imports' within a theory header
wenzelm@24172
  1135
specification, but without merging the results.  Potential
wenzelm@24172
  1136
INCOMPATIBILITY: may need to refine theory headers and commands
wenzelm@24172
  1137
ROOT.ML which depend on load order.
wenzelm@23888
  1138
wenzelm@23888
  1139
* Theory loader: optional support for content-based file
wenzelm@23888
  1140
identification, instead of the traditional scheme of full physical
wenzelm@23889
  1141
path plus date stamp; configured by the ISABELLE_FILE_IDENT setting
wenzelm@23888
  1142
(cf. the system manual).  The new scheme allows to work with
wenzelm@23888
  1143
non-finished theories in persistent session images, such that source
wenzelm@23888
  1144
files may be moved later on without requiring reloads.
wenzelm@23888
  1145
wenzelm@24187
  1146
* Theory loader: old-style ML proof scripts being *attached* to a thy
wenzelm@24187
  1147
file (with the same base name as the theory) are considered a legacy
wenzelm@24800
  1148
feature, which will disappear eventually. Even now, the theory loader
wenzelm@24800
  1149
no longer maintains dependencies on such files.
wenzelm@24800
  1150
wenzelm@24800
  1151
* Syntax: the scope for resolving ambiguities via type-inference is
wenzelm@24800
  1152
now limited to individual terms, instead of whole simultaneous
wenzelm@24234
  1153
specifications as before. This greatly reduces the complexity of the
wenzelm@24234
  1154
syntax module and improves flexibility by separating parsing and
wenzelm@24234
  1155
type-checking. INCOMPATIBILITY: additional type-constraints (explicit
wenzelm@24234
  1156
'fixes' etc.) are required in rare situations.
wenzelm@24234
  1157
wenzelm@25034
  1158
* Syntax: constants introduced by new-style packages ('definition',
wenzelm@25034
  1159
'abbreviation' etc.) are passed through the syntax module in
wenzelm@25034
  1160
``authentic mode''. This means that associated mixfix annotations
wenzelm@25034
  1161
really stick to such constants, independently of potential name space
wenzelm@25034
  1162
ambiguities introduced later on. INCOMPATIBILITY: constants in parse
wenzelm@25034
  1163
trees are represented slightly differently, may need to adapt syntax
wenzelm@25034
  1164
translations accordingly. Use CONST marker in 'translations' and
wenzelm@25034
  1165
@{const_syntax} antiquotation in 'parse_translation' etc.
wenzelm@25034
  1166
wenzelm@17981
  1167
* Legacy goal package: reduced interface to the bare minimum required
wenzelm@17981
  1168
to keep existing proof scripts running.  Most other user-level
wenzelm@17981
  1169
functions are now part of the OldGoals structure, which is *not* open
wenzelm@17981
  1170
by default (consider isatool expandshort before open OldGoals).
wenzelm@17981
  1171
Removed top_sg, prin, printyp, pprint_term/typ altogether, because
wenzelm@17981
  1172
these tend to cause confusion about the actual goal (!) context being
wenzelm@17981
  1173
used here, which is not necessarily the same as the_context().
wenzelm@17918
  1174
wenzelm@23379
  1175
* Command 'find_theorems': supports "*" wild-card in "name:"
wenzelm@23379
  1176
criterion; "with_dups" option.  Certain ProofGeneral versions might
wenzelm@23379
  1177
support a specific search form (see ProofGeneral/CHANGES).
webertj@22965
  1178
wenzelm@20370
  1179
* The ``prems limit'' option (cf. ProofContext.prems_limit) is now -1
wenzelm@20370
  1180
by default, which means that "prems" (and also "fixed variables") are
wenzelm@20370
  1181
suppressed from proof state output.  Note that the ProofGeneral
wenzelm@20370
  1182
settings mechanism allows to change and save options persistently, but
wenzelm@20370
  1183
older versions of Isabelle will fail to start up if a negative prems
wenzelm@20370
  1184
limit is imposed.
wenzelm@20370
  1185
wenzelm@21308
  1186
* Local theory targets may be specified by non-nested blocks of
wenzelm@21308
  1187
``context/locale/class ... begin'' followed by ``end''.  The body may
wenzelm@21308
  1188
contain definitions, theorems etc., including any derived mechanism
wenzelm@21308
  1189
that has been implemented on top of these primitives.  This concept
wenzelm@21308
  1190
generalizes the existing ``theorem (in ...)'' towards more versatility
wenzelm@21308
  1191
and scalability.
wenzelm@21308
  1192
wenzelm@21960
  1193
* Proof General interface: proper undo of final 'end' command;
wenzelm@21960
  1194
discontinued Isabelle/classic mode (ML proof scripts).

*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@17865
  1198
wenzelm@21717
  1199
* Added antiquotation @{theory name} which prints the given name,
wenzelm@21717
  1200
after checking that it refers to a valid ancestor theory in the
wenzelm@21717
  1201
current context.
haftmann@21339
  1202
wenzelm@17869
  1203
* Added antiquotations @{ML_type text} and @{ML_struct text} which
wenzelm@17869
  1204
check the given source text as ML type/structure, printing verbatim.
wenzelm@17865
  1205
wenzelm@21717
  1206
* Added antiquotation @{abbrev "c args"} which prints the abbreviation
wenzelm@21717
  1207
"c args == rhs" given in the current context.  (Any number of
wenzelm@21735
  1208
arguments may be given on the LHS.)

  1212
wenzelm@24800
  1213
* The 'class' package offers a combination of axclass and locale to
wenzelm@25129
  1214
achieve Haskell-like type classes in Isabelle.  Definitions and
wenzelm@25129
  1215
theorems within a class context produce both relative results (with
wenzelm@25129
  1216
implicit parameters according to the locale context), and polymorphic
wenzelm@25129
  1217
constants with qualified polymorphism (according to the class
wenzelm@25129
  1218
context).  Within the body context of a 'class' target, a separate
wenzelm@25129
  1219
syntax layer ("user space type system") takes care of converting
wenzelm@25129
  1220
between global polymorphic consts and internal locale representation.
wenzelm@25177

* Generic code generator framework allows to generate executable
wenzelm@24800
  1225
code for ML and Haskell (including Isabelle classes).  A short usage
wenzelm@24800
  1226
sketch:
haftmann@20188
  1227
haftmann@20188
  1228
    internal compilation:
haftmann@25199
  1229
        export_code <list of constants (term syntax)> in SML
haftmann@20453
  1230
    writing SML code to a file:
haftmann@25199
  1231
        export_code <list of constants (term syntax)> in SML <filename>
haftmann@22735
  1232
    writing OCaml code to a file:
haftmann@25199
  1233
        export_code <list of constants (term syntax)> in OCaml <filename>
haftmann@20188
  1234
    writing Haskell code to a bunch of files:

haftmann@25199
  1236
haftmann@25199

    evaluating closed propositions to True/False using code generation:
haftmann@25184

haftmann@25184
  1240
Reasonable default setup of framework in HOL.
haftmann@20453

Theorem attributs for selecting and transforming function equations theorems:
haftmann@20453
  1243
haftmann@22845
  1244
    [code fun]:        select a theorem as function equation for a specific constant
haftmann@22845
  1245
    [code fun del]:    deselect a theorem as function equation for a specific constant
haftmann@22845
  1246
    [code inline]:     select an equation theorem for unfolding (inlining) in place
haftmann@22845
  1247
    [code inline del]: deselect an equation theorem for unfolding (inlining) in place
haftmann@20453
  1248
haftmann@22735
  1249
User-defined serializations (target in {SML, OCaml, Haskell}):
haftmann@20453
  1250
haftmann@20453
  1251
    code_const <and-list of constants (term syntax)>
haftmann@20453
  1252
      {(target) <and-list of const target syntax>}+
haftmann@20453
  1253
haftmann@20453
  1254
    code_type <and-list of type constructors>
haftmann@20453
  1255
      {(target) <and-list of type target syntax>}+
haftmann@20453
  1256
haftmann@20453
  1257
    code_instance <and-list of instances>
haftmann@20453
  1258
      {(target)}+
haftmann@20453
  1259
        where instance ::= <type constructor> :: <class>

haftmann@20453
  1263
        where class target syntax ::= <class name> {where {<classop> == <target syntax>}+}?
haftmann@20453
  1264
haftmann@25199
  1265
code_instance and code_class only are effective to target Haskell.
haftmann@22735
  1266
wenzelm@25177
  1267
For example usage see src/HOL/ex/Codegenerator.thy and
wenzelm@25177
  1268
src/HOL/ex/Codegenerator_Pretty.thy.  A separate tutorial on code
wenzelm@24800
  1269
generation from Isabelle/HOL theories is available via "isatool doc
wenzelm@24800
  1270
codegen".
haftmann@20188
  1271
wenzelm@25129
  1272
* Code generator: consts in 'consts_code' Isar commands are now
wenzelm@25129
  1273
referred to by usual term syntax (including optional type
wenzelm@25129
  1274
annotations).
wenzelm@25129
  1275
wenzelm@19254
  1276
* Command 'no_translations' removes translation rules from theory
wenzelm@19254
  1277
syntax.
wenzelm@19254
  1278
wenzelm@19625
  1279
* Overloaded definitions are now actually checked for acyclic
wenzelm@19714
  1280
dependencies.  The overloading scheme is slightly more general than
wenzelm@19714
  1281
that of Haskell98, although Isabelle does not demand an exact
wenzelm@19714
  1282
correspondence to type class and instance declarations.
wenzelm@19714
  1283
INCOMPATIBILITY, use ``defs (unchecked overloaded)'' to admit more
wenzelm@19714
  1284
exotic versions of overloading -- at the discretion of the user!
wenzelm@19711
  1285
wenzelm@19711
  1286
Polymorphic constants are represented via type arguments, i.e. the
wenzelm@19711
  1287
instantiation that matches an instance against the most general
wenzelm@19711
  1288
declaration given in the signature.  For example, with the declaration
wenzelm@19711
  1289
c :: 'a => 'a => 'a, an instance c :: nat => nat => nat is represented
wenzelm@19711
  1290
as c(nat).  Overloading is essentially simultaneous structural
wenzelm@19711
  1291
recursion over such type arguments.  Incomplete specification patterns
wenzelm@19714
  1292
impose global constraints on all occurrences, e.g. c('a * 'a) on the
wenzelm@19715
  1293
LHS means that more general c('a * 'b) will be disallowed on any RHS.
wenzelm@19714
  1294
Command 'print_theory' outputs the normalized system of recursive
wenzelm@19714
  1295
equations, see section "definitions".
wenzelm@19625
  1296
wenzelm@24086
  1297
* Configuration options are maintained within the theory or proof
wenzelm@24086
  1298
context (with name and type bool/int/string), providing a very simple
wenzelm@24086
  1299
interface to a poor-man's version of general context data.  Tools may
wenzelm@24110
  1300
declare options in ML (e.g. using Attrib.config_int) and then refer to
wenzelm@24110
  1301
these values using Config.get etc.  Users may change options via an
wenzelm@24110
  1302
associated attribute of the same name.  This form of context
wenzelm@24110
  1303
declaration works particularly well with commands 'declare' or
wenzelm@24110
  1304
'using', for example ``declare [[foo = 42]]''.  Thus it has become
wenzelm@24110
  1305
very easy to avoid global references, which would not observe Isar
wenzelm@24110
  1306
toplevel undo/redo and fail to work with multithreading.
wenzelm@24086
  1307
wenzelm@24172

Various global ML references of Pure and HOL have been turned into

* Named collections of theorems may be easily installed as context
wenzelm@24800
  1322
data using the functor NamedThmsFun (see also
wenzelm@24086
  1323
src/Pure/Tools/named_thms.ML).  The user may add or delete facts via
wenzelm@24110
  1324
attributes; there is also a toplevel print command.  This facility is
wenzelm@24110
  1325
just a common case of general context data, which is the preferred way
wenzelm@24110
  1326
for anything more complex than just a list of facts in canonical
wenzelm@24110
  1327
order.
wenzelm@24086
  1328
wenzelm@24032
  1329
* Isar: command 'declaration' augments a local theory by generic
wenzelm@24032
  1330
declaration functions written in ML.  This enables arbitrary content
wenzelm@24032
  1331
being added to the context, depending on a morphism that tells the
wenzelm@24032
  1332
difference of the original declaration context wrt. the application
wenzelm@24032
  1333
context encountered later on.
wenzelm@24032
  1334
wenzelm@24032
  1335
* Isar: proper interfaces for simplification procedures.  Command
wenzelm@24032
  1336
'simproc_setup' declares named simprocs (with match patterns, and body
wenzelm@24032
  1337
text in ML).  Attribute "simproc" adds/deletes simprocs in the current
wenzelm@24032
  1338
context.  ML antiquotation @{simproc name} retrieves named simprocs.
wenzelm@24032
  1339
wenzelm@24032
  1340
* Isar: an extra pair of brackets around attribute declarations
wenzelm@24032
  1341
abbreviates a theorem reference involving an internal dummy fact,
wenzelm@24032
  1342
which will be ignored later --- only the effect of the attribute on
wenzelm@24032
  1343
the background context will persist.  This form of in-place
wenzelm@24032
  1344
declarations is particularly useful with commands like 'declare' and
wenzelm@24032
  1345
'using', for example ``have A using [[simproc a]] by simp''.
wenzelm@24032
  1346
wenzelm@23369
  1347
* Isar: method "assumption" (and implicit closing of subproofs) now
wenzelm@23369
  1348
takes simple non-atomic goal assumptions into account: after applying
wenzelm@23369
  1349
an assumption as a rule the resulting subgoals are solved by atomic
wenzelm@23369
  1350
assumption steps.  This is particularly useful to finish 'obtain'
wenzelm@23369
  1351
goals, such as "!!x. (!!x. P x ==> thesis) ==> P x ==> thesis",
wenzelm@23369
  1352
without referring to the original premise "!!x. P x ==> thesis" in the
wenzelm@23369
  1353
Isar proof context.  POTENTIAL INCOMPATIBILITY: method "assumption" is
wenzelm@23369
  1354
more permissive.
wenzelm@23369
  1355
wenzelm@23369
  1356
* Isar: implicit use of prems from the Isar proof context is
wenzelm@23369
  1357
considered a legacy feature.  Common applications like ``have A .''
wenzelm@23369
  1358
may be replaced by ``have A by fact'' or ``note `A`''.  In general,
wenzelm@23369
  1359
referencing facts explicitly here improves readability and
wenzelm@23369
  1360
maintainability of proof texts.
wenzelm@23369
  1361
wenzelm@17865
  1362
* Isar: improper proof element 'guess' is like 'obtain', but derives
wenzelm@17865
  1363
the obtained context from the course of reasoning!  For example:
wenzelm@17865
  1364
wenzelm@17865
  1365
  assume "EX x y. A x & B y"   -- "any previous fact"
wenzelm@17865
  1366
  then guess x and y by clarify
wenzelm@17865
  1367
wenzelm@17865
  1368
This technique is potentially adventurous, depending on the facts and
wenzelm@17865
  1369
proof tools being involved here.
wenzelm@17865
  1370
wenzelm@18020
  1371
* Isar: known facts from the proof context may be specified as literal
wenzelm@18020
  1372
propositions, using ASCII back-quote syntax.  This works wherever
wenzelm@18020
  1373
named facts used to be allowed so far, in proof commands, proof
wenzelm@18020
  1374
methods, attributes etc.  Literal facts are retrieved from the context
wenzelm@18020
  1375
according to unification of type and term parameters.  For example,
wenzelm@18020
  1376
provided that "A" and "A ==> B" and "!!x. P x ==> Q x" are known
wenzelm@18020
  1377
theorems in the current context, then these are valid literal facts:
wenzelm@18020
  1378
`A` and `A ==> B` and `!!x. P x ==> Q x" as well as `P a ==> Q a` etc.
wenzelm@18020
  1379
wenzelm@18020
  1380
There is also a proof method "fact" which does the same composition
wenzelm@18044
  1381
for explicit goal states, e.g. the following proof texts coincide with
wenzelm@18044
  1382
certain special cases of literal facts:
wenzelm@18020
  1383
wenzelm@18020
  1384
  have "A" by fact                 ==  note `A`
wenzelm@18020
  1385
  have "A ==> B" by fact           ==  note `A ==> B`
wenzelm@18020
  1386
  have "!!x. P x ==> Q x" by fact  ==  note `!!x. P x ==> Q x`
wenzelm@18020
  1387
  have "P a ==> Q a" by fact       ==  note `P a ==> Q a`
wenzelm@18020
  1388
wenzelm@20118
  1389
* Isar: ":" (colon) is no longer a symbolic identifier character in
wenzelm@20118
  1390
outer syntax.  Thus symbolic identifiers may be used without
wenzelm@20118
  1391
additional white space in declarations like this: ``assume *: A''.
wenzelm@20118
  1392
wenzelm@20013
  1393
* Isar: 'print_facts' prints all local facts of the current context,
wenzelm@20013
  1394
both named and unnamed ones.
wenzelm@20013
  1395
wenzelm@18308
  1396
* Isar: 'def' now admits simultaneous definitions, e.g.:
wenzelm@18308
  1397
wenzelm@18308
  1398
  def x == "t" and y == "u"
wenzelm@18308
  1399
wenzelm@18540
  1400
* Isar: added command 'unfolding', which is structurally similar to
wenzelm@18540
  1401
'using', but affects both the goal state and facts by unfolding given
wenzelm@18815
  1402
rewrite rules.  Thus many occurrences of the 'unfold' method or
wenzelm@18540
  1403
'unfolded' attribute may be replaced by first-class proof text.
wenzelm@18540
  1404
wenzelm@18815
  1405
* Isar: methods 'unfold' / 'fold', attributes 'unfolded' / 'folded',
wenzelm@18815
  1406
and command 'unfolding' now all support object-level equalities
wenzelm@18815
  1407
(potentially conditional).  The underlying notion of rewrite rule is
wenzelm@18815
  1408
analogous to the 'rule_format' attribute, but *not* that of the
wenzelm@18815
  1409
Simplifier (which is usually more generous).
wenzelm@18815
  1410
kleing@24238
  1411
* Isar: the new attribute [rotated n] (default n = 1) rotates the
kleing@24238
  1412
premises of a theorem by n. Useful in conjunction with drule.
kleing@24238
  1413
wenzelm@19220
  1414
* Isar: the goal restriction operator [N] (default N = 1) evaluates a
wenzelm@19220
  1415
method expression within a sandbox consisting of the first N
wenzelm@19240
  1416
sub-goals, which need to exist.  For example, ``simp_all [3]''
wenzelm@19240
  1417
simplifies the first three sub-goals, while (rule foo, simp_all)[]
wenzelm@19240
  1418
simplifies all new goals that emerge from applying rule foo to the
wenzelm@19240
  1419
originally first one.
wenzelm@19220
  1420
wenzelm@19814
  1421
* Isar: schematic goals are no longer restricted to higher-order
wenzelm@19814
  1422
patterns; e.g. ``lemma "?P(?x)" by (rule TrueI)'' now works as
wenzelm@19814
  1423
expected.
wenzelm@19814
  1424
wenzelm@18901
  1425
* Isar: the conclusion of a long theorem statement is now either
wenzelm@18901
  1426
'shows' (a simultaneous conjunction, as before), or 'obtains'
wenzelm@18901
  1427
(essentially a disjunction of cases with local parameters and
wenzelm@18901
  1428
assumptions).  The latter allows to express general elimination rules
wenzelm@18910
  1429
adequately; in this notation common elimination rules look like this:
wenzelm@18901
  1430
wenzelm@18901
  1431
  lemma exE:    -- "EX x. P x ==> (!!x. P x ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1432
    assumes "EX x. P x"
wenzelm@18901
  1433
    obtains x where "P x"
wenzelm@18901
  1434
wenzelm@18901
  1435
  lemma conjE:  -- "A & B ==> (A ==> B ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1436
    assumes "A & B"
wenzelm@18901
  1437
    obtains A and B
wenzelm@18901
  1438
wenzelm@18901
  1439
  lemma disjE:  -- "A | B ==> (A ==> thesis) ==> (B ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1440
    assumes "A | B"
wenzelm@18901
  1441
    obtains
wenzelm@18901
  1442
      A
wenzelm@18901
  1443
    | B
wenzelm@18901
  1444
wenzelm@18910
  1445
The subsequent classical rules even refer to the formal "thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1446
explicitly:
wenzelm@18901
  1447
wenzelm@18901
  1448
  lemma classical:     -- "(~ thesis ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1449
    obtains "~ thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1450
wenzelm@18910
  1451
  lemma Peirce's_Law:  -- "((thesis ==> something) ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18910
  1452
    obtains "thesis ==> something"
wenzelm@18901
  1453
wenzelm@18901
  1454
The actual proof of an 'obtains' statement is analogous to that of the
wenzelm@18910
  1455
Isar proof element 'obtain', only that there may be several cases.
wenzelm@18910
  1456
Optional case names may be specified in parentheses; these will be
wenzelm@18910
  1457
available both in the present proof and as annotations in the
wenzelm@18910
  1458
resulting rule, for later use with the 'cases' method (cf. attribute
wenzelm@18910
  1459
case_names).
wenzelm@18901
  1460
wenzelm@21447
  1461
* Isar: the assumptions of a long theorem statement are available as
wenzelm@21447
  1462
"assms" fact in the proof context.  This is more appropriate than the
wenzelm@21447
  1463
(historical) "prems", which refers to all assumptions of the current
wenzelm@21447
  1464
context, including those from the target locale, proof body etc.
wenzelm@21447
  1465
wenzelm@19263
  1466
* Isar: 'print_statement' prints theorems from the current theory or
wenzelm@19263
  1467
proof context in long statement form, according to the syntax of a
wenzelm@19263
  1468
top-level lemma.
wenzelm@19263
  1469
wenzelm@18901
  1470
* Isar: 'obtain' takes an optional case name for the local context
wenzelm@18901
  1471
introduction rule (default "that").
wenzelm@18901
  1472
wenzelm@19587
  1473
* Isar: removed obsolete 'concl is' patterns.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use
wenzelm@19587
  1474
explicit (is "_ ==> ?foo") in the rare cases where this still happens
wenzelm@19587
  1475
to occur.
wenzelm@19587
  1476
wenzelm@19682
  1477
* Pure: syntax "CONST name" produces a fully internalized constant
wenzelm@19682
  1478
according to the current context.  This is particularly useful for
wenzelm@19682
  1479
syntax translations that should refer to internal constant
wenzelm@19682
  1480
representations independently of name spaces.
wenzelm@19682
  1481
wenzelm@21537
  1482
* Pure: syntax constant for foo (binder "FOO ") is called "foo_binder"
wenzelm@21537
  1483
instead of "FOO ". This allows multiple binder declarations to coexist
wenzelm@21537
  1484
in the same context.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@21537
  1485
wenzelm@21209
  1486
* Isar/locales: 'notation' provides a robust interface to the 'syntax'
wenzelm@21209
  1487
primitive that also works in a locale context (both for constants and
wenzelm@24950
  1488
fixed variables). Type declaration and internal syntactic representation
wenzelm@24950
  1489
of given constants retrieved from the context. Likewise, the
wenzelm@24950
  1490
'no_notation' command allows to remove given syntax annotations from the
wenzelm@24950
  1491
current context.
wenzelm@19682
  1492
wenzelm@19665
  1493
* Isar/locales: new derived specification elements 'axiomatization',
wenzelm@19665
  1494
'definition', 'abbreviation', which support type-inference, admit
wenzelm@19083
  1495
object-level specifications (equality, equivalence).  See also the
wenzelm@19083
  1496
isar-ref manual.  Examples:
wenzelm@19081
  1497
wenzelm@19665
  1498
  axiomatization
wenzelm@21595
  1499
    eq  (infix "===" 50) where
wenzelm@21595
  1500
    eq_refl: "x === x" and eq_subst: "x === y ==> P x ==> P y"
wenzelm@21595
  1501
wenzelm@21595
  1502
  definition "f x y = x + y + 1"
wenzelm@21595
  1503
  definition g where "g x = f x x"
wenzelm@19081
  1504
wenzelm@19363
  1505
  abbreviation
wenzelm@21595
  1506
    neq  (infix "=!=" 50) where
wenzelm@19363
  1507
    "x =!= y == ~ (x === y)"
wenzelm@19081
  1508
wenzelm@19083
  1509
These specifications may be also used in a locale context.  Then the
wenzelm@19083
  1510
constants being introduced depend on certain fixed parameters, and the
wenzelm@19083
  1511
constant name is qualified by the locale base name.  An internal
wenzelm@19083
  1512
abbreviation takes care for convenient input and output, making the
wenzelm@19088
  1513
parameters implicit and using the original short name.  See also
wenzelm@25177
  1514
src/HOL/ex/Abstract_NAT.thy for an example of deriving polymorphic
wenzelm@19083
  1515
entities from a monomorphic theory.
wenzelm@19083
  1516
wenzelm@19083
  1517
Presently, abbreviations are only available 'in' a target locale, but
wenzelm@19363
  1518
not inherited by general import expressions.  Also note that
wenzelm@19363
  1519
'abbreviation' may be used as a type-safe replacement for 'syntax' +
wenzelm@24735
  1520
'translations' in common applications.  The "no_abbrevs" print mode
wenzelm@24735
  1521
prevents folding of abbreviations in term output.
wenzelm@19084
  1522
wenzelm@19682
  1523
Concrete syntax is attached to specified constants in internal form,
wenzelm@19682
  1524
independently of name spaces.  The parse tree representation is
wenzelm@21209
  1525
slightly different -- use 'notation' instead of raw 'syntax', and
wenzelm@19682
  1526
'translations' with explicit "CONST" markup to accommodate this.
wenzelm@19665
  1527
wenzelm@24800
  1528
* Pure/Isar: unified syntax for new-style specification mechanisms
wenzelm@24800
  1529
(e.g.  'definition', 'abbreviation', or 'inductive' in HOL) admits
wenzelm@24800
  1530
full type inference and dummy patterns ("_").  For example:
wenzelm@24735
  1531
wenzelm@24735
  1532
  definition "K x _ = x"
wenzelm@24735
  1533
wenzelm@24738
  1534
  inductive conj for A B
wenzelm@24738
  1535
  where "A ==> B ==> conj A B"
wenzelm@24738
  1536
wenzelm@21735
  1537
* Pure: command 'print_abbrevs' prints all constant abbreviations of
wenzelm@21735
  1538
the current context.  Print mode "no_abbrevs" prevents inversion of
wenzelm@21735
  1539
abbreviations on output.
wenzelm@21735
  1540
wenzelm@24800
  1541
* Isar/locales: improved parameter handling: use of locales "var" and
wenzelm@24800
  1542
"struct" no longer necessary; - parameter renamings are no longer
wenzelm@24800
  1543
required to be injective.  For example, this allows to define
wenzelm@24800
  1544
endomorphisms as locale endom = homom mult mult h.
ballarin@19783
  1545
ballarin@19931
  1546
* Isar/locales: changed the way locales with predicates are defined.
ballarin@19931
  1547
Instead of accumulating the specification, the imported expression is
wenzelm@22126
  1548
now an interpretation.  INCOMPATIBILITY: different normal form of
wenzelm@22126
  1549
locale expressions.  In particular, in interpretations of locales with
wenzelm@22126
  1550
predicates, goals repesenting already interpreted fragments are not
wenzelm@22126
  1551
removed automatically.  Use methods `intro_locales' and
wenzelm@22126
  1552
`unfold_locales'; see below.
wenzelm@22126
  1553
wenzelm@22126
  1554
* Isar/locales: new methods `intro_locales' and `unfold_locales'
wenzelm@22126
  1555
provide backward reasoning on locales predicates.  The methods are
wenzelm@22126
  1556
aware of interpretations and discharge corresponding goals.
wenzelm@22126
  1557
`intro_locales' is less aggressive then `unfold_locales' and does not
wenzelm@22126
  1558
unfold predicates to assumptions.
ballarin@19931
  1559
ballarin@19931
  1560
* Isar/locales: the order in which locale fragments are accumulated
wenzelm@22126
  1561
has changed.  This enables to override declarations from fragments due
wenzelm@22126
  1562
to interpretations -- for example, unwanted simp rules.
ballarin@19931
  1563
ballarin@23920
  1564
* Isar/locales: interpretation in theories and proof contexts has been
ballarin@23920
  1565
extended.  One may now specify (and prove) equations, which are
ballarin@23920
  1566
unfolded in interpreted theorems.  This is useful for replacing
ballarin@23920
  1567
defined concepts (constants depending on locale parameters) by
ballarin@23920
  1568
concepts already existing in the target context.  Example:
ballarin@23920
  1569
ballarin@23920
  1570
  interpretation partial_order ["op <= :: [int, int] => bool"]
ballarin@23920
  1571
    where "partial_order.less (op <=) (x::int) y = (x < y)"
ballarin@23920
  1572
wenzelm@24800
  1573
Typically, the constant `partial_order.less' is created by a
wenzelm@24800
  1574
definition specification element in the context of locale
wenzelm@24800
  1575
partial_order.
wenzelm@24800
  1576
wenzelm@24859
  1577
* Method "induct": improved internal context management to support
wenzelm@24800
  1578
local fixes and defines on-the-fly. Thus explicit meta-level
wenzelm@24800
  1579
connectives !!  and ==> are rarely required anymore in inductive goals
wenzelm@24800
  1580
(using object-logic connectives for this purpose has been long
wenzelm@24800
  1581
obsolete anyway). Common proof patterns are explained in
wenzelm@25177
  1582
src/HOL/Induct/Common_Patterns.thy, see also
wenzelm@25177
  1583
src/HOL/Isar_examples/Puzzle.thy and src/HOL/Lambda for realistic
wenzelm@25177
  1584
examples.
wenzelm@24606
  1585
wenzelm@24859
  1586
* Method "induct": improved handling of simultaneous goals. Instead of
wenzelm@24606
  1587
introducing object-level conjunction, the statement is now split into
wenzelm@24606
  1588
several conclusions, while the corresponding symbolic cases are nested
wenzelm@24606
  1589
accordingly. INCOMPATIBILITY, proofs need to be structured explicitly,
wenzelm@25177
  1590
see src/HOL/Induct/Common_Patterns.thy, for example.
wenzelm@24606
  1591
wenzelm@24859
  1592
* Method "induct": mutual induction rules are now specified as a list
wenzelm@24800
  1593
of rule sharing the same induction cases. HOL packages usually provide
wenzelm@24606
  1594
foo_bar.inducts for mutually defined items foo and bar (e.g. inductive
wenzelm@24859
  1595
predicates/sets or datatypes). INCOMPATIBILITY, users need to specify
wenzelm@24859
  1596
mutual induction rules differently, i.e. like this:
wenzelm@18506
  1597
wenzelm@18506
  1598
  (induct rule: foo_bar.inducts)
wenzelm@18506
  1599
  (induct set: foo bar)
wenzelm@24859
  1600
  (induct pred: foo bar)
wenzelm@18506
  1601
  (induct type: foo bar)
wenzelm@18506
  1602
wenzelm@18506
  1603
The ML function ProjectRule.projections turns old-style rules into the
wenzelm@18506
  1604
new format.
wenzelm@18506
  1605
wenzelm@24859
  1606
* Method "coinduct": dual of induction, see
wenzelm@18399
  1607
src/HOL/Library/Coinductive_List.thy for various examples.
wenzelm@18399
  1608
wenzelm@24859
  1609
* Method "cases", "induct", "coinduct": the ``(open)'' option is
wenzelm@24859
  1610
considered a legacy feature.
wenzelm@24859
  1611
wenzelm@20919
  1612
* Attribute "symmetric" produces result with standardized schematic
wenzelm@20919
  1613
variables (index 0).  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@20919
  1614
wenzelm@22126
  1615
* Simplifier: by default the simplifier trace only shows top level
wenzelm@22126
  1616
rewrites now. That is, trace_simp_depth_limit is set to 1 by
wenzelm@22126
  1617
default. Thus there is less danger of being flooded by the trace. The
wenzelm@22126
  1618
trace indicates where parts have been suppressed.
nipkow@18674
  1619
  
wenzelm@18536
  1620
* Provers/classical: removed obsolete classical version of elim_format
wenzelm@18536
  1621
attribute; classical elim/dest rules are now treated uniformly when
wenzelm@18536
  1622
manipulating the claset.
wenzelm@18536
  1623
wenzelm@18694
  1624
* Provers/classical: stricter checks to ensure that supplied intro,
wenzelm@18694
  1625
dest and elim rules are well-formed; dest and elim rules must have at
wenzelm@18694
  1626
least one premise.
wenzelm@18694
  1627
wenzelm@18694
  1628
* Provers/classical: attributes dest/elim/intro take an optional
wenzelm@18695
  1629
weight argument for the rule (just as the Pure versions).  Weights are
wenzelm@18696
  1630
ignored by automated tools, but determine the search order of single
wenzelm@18694
  1631
rule steps.
paulson@18557
  1632
wenzelm@18536
  1633
* Syntax: input syntax now supports dummy variable binding "%_. b",
wenzelm@18536
  1634
where the body does not mention the bound variable.  Note that dummy
wenzelm@18536
  1635
patterns implicitly depend on their context of bounds, which makes
wenzelm@18536
  1636
"{_. _}" match any set comprehension as expected.  Potential
wenzelm@18536
  1637
INCOMPATIBILITY -- parse translations need to cope with syntactic
wenzelm@18536
  1638
constant "_idtdummy" in the binding position.
wenzelm@18536
  1639
wenzelm@18536
  1640
* Syntax: removed obsolete syntactic constant "_K" and its associated
wenzelm@18536
  1641
parse translation.  INCOMPATIBILITY -- use dummy abstraction instead,
wenzelm@18536
  1642
for example "A -> B" => "Pi A (%_. B)".
wenzelm@17779
  1643
wenzelm@20582
  1644
* Pure: 'class_deps' command visualizes the subclass relation, using
wenzelm@20582
  1645
the graph browser tool.
wenzelm@20582
  1646
wenzelm@24800
  1647
* Pure: 'print_theory' now suppresses certain internal declarations by
wenzelm@24800
  1648
default; use '!' option for full details.

  1653
* Method "metis" proves goals by applying the Metis general-purpose
wenzelm@25129
  1654
resolution prover (see also http://gilith.com/software/metis/).
wenzelm@25129
  1655
Examples are in the directory MetisExamples.  WARNING: the
wenzelm@25129
  1656
Isabelle/HOL-Metis integration does not yet work properly with
wenzelm@25129
  1657
multi-threading.
wenzelm@25129
  1658
  
wenzelm@25129
  1659
* Command 'sledgehammer' invokes external automatic theorem provers as
wenzelm@25129
  1660
background processes.  It generates calls to the "metis" method if
wenzelm@25129
  1661
successful. These can be pasted into the proof.  Users do not have to
wenzelm@25129
  1662
wait for the automatic provers to return.  WARNING: does not really

* New "auto_quickcheck" feature tests outermost goal statements for
wenzelm@24804
  1666
potential counter-examples.  Controlled by ML references
wenzelm@24804
  1667
auto_quickcheck (default true) and auto_quickcheck_time_limit (default
wenzelm@25129
  1668
5000 milliseconds).  Fails silently if statements is outside of
wenzelm@25129
  1669
executable fragment, or any other codgenerator problem occurs.
wenzelm@24804

haftmann@25184
  1671
* New constant "undefined" with axiom "undefined x = undefined".
haftmann@25184
  1672
haftmann@25184
  1673
* Added class "HOL.eq", allowing for code generation with polymorphic
haftmann@25184
  1674
equality.
haftmann@25184
  1675
haftmann@25184
  1676
* Some renaming of class constants due to canonical name prefixing in
haftmann@25184
  1677
the new 'class' package:
haftmann@25184

  1700
INCOMPATIBILITY.  Adaptions may be required in the following cases:
haftmann@25184
  1701
haftmann@25184
  1702
a) User-defined constants using any of the names "plus", "minus",
haftmann@25184
  1703
"times", "less" or "less_eq". The standard syntax translations for
haftmann@25184
  1704
"+", "-" and "*" may go wrong.  INCOMPATIBILITY: use more specific
haftmann@25184
  1705
names.
haftmann@25184
  1706
haftmann@25184
  1707
b) Variables named "plus", "minus", "times", "less", "less_eq"
haftmann@25184
  1708
INCOMPATIBILITY: use more specific names.
haftmann@25184
  1709
haftmann@25184
  1710
c) Permutative equations (e.g. "a + b = b + a")
haftmann@25184
  1711
Since the change of names also changes the order of terms, permutative
haftmann@25184
  1712
rewrite rules may get applied in a different order. Experience shows
haftmann@25184
  1713
that this is rarely the case (only two adaptions in the whole Isabelle
haftmann@25184
  1714
distribution).  INCOMPATIBILITY: rewrite proofs
haftmann@25184
  1715
haftmann@25184
  1716
d) ML code directly refering to constant names
haftmann@25184
  1717
This in general only affects hand-written proof tactics, simprocs and
haftmann@25184
  1718
so on.  INCOMPATIBILITY: grep your sourcecode and replace names.
haftmann@25184
  1719
Consider using @{const_name} antiquotation.
haftmann@25184
  1720
haftmann@25184
  1721
* New class "default" with associated constant "default".
haftmann@25184
  1722
haftmann@25184
  1723
* Function "sgn" is now overloaded and available on int, real, complex
haftmann@25184
  1724
(and other numeric types), using class "sgn".  Two possible defs of
haftmann@25184
  1725
sgn are given as equational assumptions in the classes sgn_if and
haftmann@25184
  1726
sgn_div_norm; ordered_idom now also inherits from sgn_if.
haftmann@25184
  1727
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
  1728
haftmann@25184
  1729
* Locale "partial_order" now unified with class "order" (cf. theory
haftmann@25184
  1730
Orderings), added parameter "less".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
  1731
haftmann@25184
  1732
* Renamings in classes "order" and "linorder": facts "refl", "trans" and
haftmann@25184
  1733
"cases" to "order_refl", "order_trans" and "linorder_cases", to avoid
haftmann@25184
  1734
clashes with HOL "refl" and "trans".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
  1735
haftmann@25184
  1736
* Classes "order" and "linorder": potential INCOMPATIBILITY due to
haftmann@25184
  1737
changed order of proof goals in instance proofs.
haftmann@25184
  1738
haftmann@25184
  1739
* The transitivity reasoner for partial and linear orders is set up
haftmann@25184
  1740
for classes "order" and "linorder".  Instances of the reasoner are available
haftmann@25184
  1741
in all contexts importing or interpreting the corresponding locales.
haftmann@25184
  1742
Method "order" invokes the reasoner separately; the reasoner
haftmann@25184
  1743
is also integrated with the Simplifier as a solver.  Diagnostic
haftmann@25184
  1744
command 'print_orders' shows the available instances of the reasoner
haftmann@25184
  1745
in the current context.
haftmann@25184
  1746
haftmann@25184
  1747
* Localized monotonicity predicate in theory "Orderings"; integrated
haftmann@25184
  1748
lemmas max_of_mono and min_of_mono with this predicate.
haftmann@25184
  1749
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
  1750
haftmann@25184
  1751
* Formulation of theorem "dense" changed slightly due to integration
haftmann@25184
  1752
with new class dense_linear_order.
haftmann@25184
  1753
haftmann@25184
  1754
* Uniform lattice theory development in HOL.
haftmann@25184
  1755
haftmann@25184
  1756
    constants "meet" and "join" now named "inf" and "sup"
haftmann@25184
  1757
    constant "Meet" now named "Inf"
haftmann@25184
  1758
haftmann@25184
  1759
    classes "meet_semilorder" and "join_semilorder" now named
haftmann@25184
  1760
      "lower_semilattice" and "upper_semilattice"
haftmann@25184
  1761
    class "lorder" now named "lattice"
haftmann@25184
  1762
    class "comp_lat" now named "complete_lattice"
haftmann@25184
  1763
haftmann@25184
  1764
    Instantiation of lattice classes allows explicit definitions
haftmann@25184
  1765
    for "inf" and "sup" operations (or "Inf" and "Sup" for complete lattices).
haftmann@25184

type "'a::size ==> bool"
haftmann@25184
  1872
wenzelm@24800
  1873
* Internal reorganisation of `size' of datatypes: size theorems

  1874
"foo.size" are no longer subsumed by "foo.simps" (but are still
wenzelm@24800
  1875
simplification rules by default!); theorems "prod.size" now named
haftmann@25184
  1876
"*.size".
haftmann@25184
  1877
haftmann@25184
  1878
* Class "div" now inherits from class "times" rather than "type".

haftmann@23850
  1899
* Code generator library theories:
haftmann@24993
  1900
  - Code_Integer represents HOL integers by big integer literals in target
haftmann@23850
  1901
    languages.
haftmann@24993
  1902
  - Code_Char represents HOL characters by character literals in target
haftmann@23850
  1903
    languages.
haftmann@24993
  1904
  - Code_Char_chr like Code_Char, but also offers treatment of character
haftmann@24993
  1905
    codes; includes Code_Integer.
wenzelm@24800
  1906
  - Executable_Set allows to generate code for finite sets using lists.
wenzelm@24800
  1907
  - Executable_Rat implements rational numbers as triples (sign, enumerator,
haftmann@23850
  1908
    denominator).
wenzelm@24800
  1909
  - Executable_Real implements a subset of real numbers, namly those
haftmann@23850
  1910
    representable by rational numbers.
wenzelm@24800
  1911
  - Efficient_Nat implements natural numbers by integers, which in general will
haftmann@23850
  1912
    result in higher efficency; pattern matching with 0/Suc is eliminated;
haftmann@24993
  1913
    includes Code_Integer.
haftmann@24993
  1914
  - Code_Index provides an additional datatype index which is mapped to
haftmann@24993
  1915
    target-language built-in integers.
haftmann@26355
  1916
  - Code_Message provides an additional datatype message_string which is isomorphic to
haftmann@24993
  1917
    strings; messages are mapped to target-language strings.

* New package for inductive predicates
berghofe@23783
  1920
berghofe@23783
  1921
  An n-ary predicate p with m parameters z_1, ..., z_m can now be defined via
berghofe@23783
  1922
berghofe@23783
  1923
    inductive

berghofe@23783
  1941
berghofe@23783
  1942
  For backward compatibility, there is a wrapper allowing inductive

  1944
berghofe@23783

berghofe@23783
  1967
berghofe@23783
  1968
  INCOMPATIBILITIES:
berghofe@23783
  1969
berghofe@23783
  1970
  - Since declaration and definition of inductive sets or predicates
wenzelm@24800
  1971
    is no longer separated, abbreviations involving the newly
wenzelm@24800
  1972
    introduced sets or predicates must be specified together with the
wenzelm@24800
  1973
    introduction rules after the 'where' keyword (see above), rather
wenzelm@24800
  1974
    than before the actual inductive definition.
wenzelm@24800
  1975
wenzelm@24800
  1976
  - The variables in induction and elimination rules are now
wenzelm@24800
  1977
    quantified in the order of their occurrence in the introduction
wenzelm@24800
  1978
    rules, rather than in alphabetical order. Since this may break
wenzelm@24800
  1979
    some proofs, these proofs either have to be repaired, e.g. by
wenzelm@24800
  1980
    reordering the variables a_i_1 ... a_i_{k_i} in Isar 'case'
wenzelm@24800
  1981
    statements of the form
berghofe@23783
  1982
berghofe@23783
  1983
      case (rule_i a_i_1 ... a_i_{k_i})
berghofe@23783
  1984
berghofe@23783
  1985
    or the old order of quantification has to be restored by explicitly adding
berghofe@23783
  1986
    meta-level quantifiers in the introduction rules, i.e.
berghofe@23783
  1987
berghofe@23783
  1988
      | rule_i: "!!a_i_1 ... a_i_{k_i}. ... ==> p z_1 ... z_m t_i_1 ... t_i_n"
berghofe@23783
  1989
berghofe@23783
  1990
  - The format of the elimination rules is now
berghofe@23783
  1991
berghofe@23783
  1992
      p z_1 ... z_m x_1 ... x_n ==>
berghofe@23783
  1993
        (!!a_1_1 ... a_1_{k_1}. x_1 = t_1_1 ==> ... ==> x_n = t_1_n ==> ... ==> P)
berghofe@23783
  1994
        ==> ... ==> P
berghofe@23783
  1995
berghofe@23783
  1996
    for predicates and
berghofe@23783
  1997
berghofe@23783
  1998
      (x_1, ..., x_n) : s z_1 ... z_m ==>
berghofe@23783
  1999
        (!!a_1_1 ... a_1_{k_1}. x_1 = t_1_1 ==> ... ==> x_n = t_1_n ==> ... ==> P)
berghofe@23783
  2000
        ==> ... ==> P
berghofe@23783
  2001
berghofe@23783
  2002
    for sets rather than
berghofe@23783
  2003
berghofe@23783
  2004
      x : s z_1 ... z_m ==>
berghofe@23783
  2005
        (!!a_1_1 ... a_1_{k_1}. x = (t_1_1, ..., t_1_n) ==> ... ==> P)

  2006
        ==> ... ==> P
berghofe@23783
  2007
wenzelm@24800
  2008
    This may require terms in goals to be expanded to n-tuples
wenzelm@24800
  2009
    (e.g. using case_tac or simplification with the split_paired_all
wenzelm@24800
  2010
    rule) before the above elimination rule is applicable.
wenzelm@24800
  2011
wenzelm@24800
  2012
  - The elimination or case analysis rules for (mutually) inductive
wenzelm@24800
  2013
    sets or predicates are now called "p_1.cases" ... "p_k.cases". The
wenzelm@24800
  2014
    list of rules "p_1_..._p_k.elims" is no longer available.
berghofe@23783
  2015
krauss@25198
  2016
* New package "function"/"fun" for general recursive functions,
krauss@25198
  2017
supporting mutual and nested recursion, definitions in local contexts,
krauss@25198
  2018
more general pattern matching and partiality. See HOL/ex/Fundefs.thy
krauss@25198
  2019
for small examples, and the separate tutorial on the function
krauss@25198
  2020
package. The old recdef "package" is still available as before, but
krauss@25198
  2021
users are encouraged to use the new package.
krauss@25198
  2022
krauss@25198
  2023
* Method "lexicographic_order" automatically synthesizes termination
krauss@25198
  2024
relations as lexicographic combinations of size measures. 
krauss@25198
  2025
wenzelm@24800
  2026
* Case-expressions allow arbitrary constructor-patterns (including
wenzelm@24800
  2027
"_") and take their order into account, like in functional
wenzelm@24800
  2028
programming.  Internally, this is translated into nested
wenzelm@24800
  2029
case-expressions; missing cases are added and mapped to the predefined
wenzelm@24800
  2030
constant "undefined". In complicated cases printing may no longer show
wenzelm@24800
  2031
the original input but the internal form. Lambda-abstractions allow
wenzelm@24800
  2032
the same form of pattern matching: "% pat1 => e1 | ..." is an
wenzelm@24800
  2033
abbreviation for "%x. case x of pat1 => e1 | ..." where x is a new
wenzelm@24800
  2034
variable.
nipkow@23564
  2035
huffman@23468
  2036
* IntDef: The constant "int :: nat => int" has been removed; now "int"
wenzelm@24800
  2037
is an abbreviation for "of_nat :: nat => int". The simplification
wenzelm@24800
  2038
rules for "of_nat" have been changed to work like "int" did
wenzelm@24800
  2039
previously.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY:
huffman@23468
  2040
  - "of_nat (Suc m)" simplifies to "1 + of_nat m" instead of "of_nat m + 1"
huffman@23468
  2041
  - of_nat_diff and of_nat_mult are no longer default simp rules
huffman@23377

  2043
* Method "algebra" solves polynomial equations over (semi)rings using
wenzelm@24800
  2044
Groebner bases. The (semi)ring structure is defined by locales and the
wenzelm@24800
  2045
tool setup depends on that generic context. Installing the method for
wenzelm@24800
  2046
a specific type involves instantiating the locale and possibly adding
wenzelm@24800
  2047
declarations for computation on the coefficients.  The method is
wenzelm@24800
  2048
already instantiated for natural numbers and for the axiomatic class
wenzelm@24800
  2049
of idoms with numerals.  See also the paper by Chaieb and Wenzel at
wenzelm@24800

wenzelm@24800
  2051
architecture of context-aware proof-tools.

* Method "ferrack" implements quantifier elimination over
wenzelm@25033
  2054
special-purpose dense linear orders using locales (analogous to
wenzelm@25033
  2055
"algebra"). The method is already installed for class

wenzelm@24800
  2071
* The special syntax for function "filter" has changed from [x :
wenzelm@24800

xs. P] to [x <- xs. P] to avoid an ambiguity caused by list

* HOL/records: generalised field-update to take a function on the
wenzelm@22126
  2104
field rather than the new value: r(|A := x|) is translated to A_update
wenzelm@22126
  2105
(K x) r The K-combinator that is internally used is called K_record.
schirmer@21226

wenzelm@24800
  2111
inherit from semiring_0 anymore, because this property is a theorem
wenzelm@24800
  2112
there, not an axiom.  INCOMPATIBILITY: In instances of semiring_0,
wenzelm@24800
  2113
there is more to prove, but this is mostly trivial.
wenzelm@24800
  2114
wenzelm@24800
  2115
* Class "recpower" is generalized to arbitrary monoids, not just
wenzelm@24800
  2116
commutative semirings.  INCOMPATIBILITY: may need to incorporate
haftmann@25163
  2117
commutativity or semiring properties additionally.
haftmann@21215
  2118
haftmann@21099
  2119
* Constant "List.list_all2" in List.thy now uses authentic syntax.
wenzelm@24800
  2120
INCOMPATIBILITY: translations containing list_all2 may go wrong,
wenzelm@24800
  2121
better use 'abbreviation'.
wenzelm@24800
  2122
wenzelm@24800
  2123
* Renamed constant "List.op mem" to "List.member".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  2124
wenzelm@22126
  2125
* Numeral syntax: type 'bin' which was a mere type copy of 'int' has
wenzelm@24800
  2126
been abandoned in favour of plain 'int'.  INCOMPATIBILITY --
wenzelm@22126
  2127
significant changes for setting up numeral syntax for types:
wenzelm@24800
  2128
  - New constants Numeral.pred and Numeral.succ instead
haftmann@20485
  2129
      of former Numeral.bin_pred and Numeral.bin_succ.
haftmann@20485
  2130
  - Use integer operations instead of bin_add, bin_mult and so on.
haftmann@20485
  2131
  - Numeral simplification theorems named Numeral.numeral_simps instead of Bin_simps.
haftmann@20485
  2132
  - ML structure Bin_Simprocs now named Int_Numeral_Base_Simprocs.
haftmann@20485
  2133
wenzelm@25177
  2134
See src/HOL/Integ/IntArith.thy for an example setup.
wenzelm@25177
  2135
wenzelm@25177
  2136
* Command 'normal_form' computes the normal form of a term that may
wenzelm@25177
  2137
contain free variables.  For example ``normal_form "rev [a, b, c]"''
wenzelm@25177
  2138
produces ``[b, c, a]'' (without proof).  This command is suitable for
wenzelm@25177
  2139
heavy-duty computations because the functions are compiled to ML
wenzelm@25177
  2140
first.  Correspondingly, a method "normalization" is provided.  See
wenzelm@25177
  2141
further src/HOL/ex/NormalForm.thy and src/Tools/nbe.ML.
nipkow@19895
  2142
wenzelm@17996
  2143
* Alternative iff syntax "A <-> B" for equality on bool (with priority
wenzelm@17996
  2144
25 like -->); output depends on the "iff" print_mode, the default is
wenzelm@17996
  2145
"A = B" (with priority 50).
wenzelm@17996
  2146
wenzelm@21265
  2147
* Relations less (<) and less_eq (<=) are also available on type bool.
wenzelm@21265
  2148
Modified syntax to disallow nesting without explicit parentheses,
wenzelm@24800
  2149
e.g. "(x < y) < z" or "x < (y < z)", but NOT "x < y < z".  Potential
wenzelm@24800
  2150
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@21265
  2151
nipkow@18674
  2152
* "LEAST x:A. P" expands to "LEAST x. x:A & P" (input only).
nipkow@18674
  2153
krauss@20716
  2154
* Relation composition operator "op O" now has precedence 75 and binds
krauss@20716
  2155
stronger than union and intersection. INCOMPATIBILITY.
krauss@20716
  2156
wenzelm@22126
  2157
* The old set interval syntax "{m..n(}" (and relatives) has been
wenzelm@22126
  2158
removed.  Use "{m..<n}" (and relatives) instead.
nipkow@19377
  2159
wenzelm@17865
  2160
* In the context of the assumption "~(s = t)" the Simplifier rewrites
wenzelm@24800
  2161
"t = s" to False (by simproc "neq").  INCOMPATIBILITY, consider using
wenzelm@24800
  2162
``declare [[simproc del: neq]]''.
wenzelm@24800
  2163
wenzelm@24800
  2164
* Simplifier: "m dvd n" where m and n are numbers is evaluated to
wenzelm@24800
  2165
True/False.
wenzelm@24800
  2166
wenzelm@24800
  2167
* Theorem Cons_eq_map_conv no longer declared as "simp".
nipkow@19211
  2168
ballarin@19279
  2169
* Theorem setsum_mult renamed to setsum_right_distrib.
ballarin@19279
  2170
nipkow@19211
  2171
* Prefer ex1I over ex_ex1I in single-step reasoning, e.g. by the
wenzelm@22126
  2172
``rule'' method.
wenzelm@22126
  2173
wenzelm@24800
  2174
* Reimplemented methods "sat" and "satx", with several improvements:
wenzelm@24800
  2175
goals no longer need to be stated as "<prems> ==> False", equivalences
wenzelm@24800
  2176
(i.e. "=" on type bool) are handled, variable names of the form
wenzelm@24800
  2177
"lit_<n>" are no longer reserved, significant speedup.
wenzelm@24800
  2178
wenzelm@24800
  2179
* Methods "sat" and "satx" can now replay MiniSat proof traces.
wenzelm@22126
  2180
zChaff is still supported as well.
wenzelm@22126
  2181
wenzelm@22126
  2182
* 'inductive' and 'datatype': provide projections of mutual rules,
wenzelm@22126
  2183
bundled as foo_bar.inducts;
wenzelm@22126
  2184
wenzelm@22126
  2185
* Library: moved theories Parity, GCD, Binomial, Infinite_Set to
wenzelm@22126
  2186
Library.
wenzelm@21256
  2187
wenzelm@21256
  2188
* Library: moved theory Accessible_Part to main HOL.
wenzelm@19572
  2189
wenzelm@18446
  2190
* Library: added theory Coinductive_List of potentially infinite lists
wenzelm@18446
  2191
as greatest fixed-point.
wenzelm@18399
  2192
wenzelm@19254
  2193
* Library: added theory AssocList which implements (finite) maps as
schirmer@19252
  2194
association lists.
webertj@17809
  2195
wenzelm@24800
  2196
* Method "evaluation" solves goals (i.e. a boolean expression)
wenzelm@24800
  2197
efficiently by compiling it to ML.  The goal is "proved" (via an
wenzelm@24800
  2198
oracle) if it evaluates to True.
wenzelm@20807
  2199
wenzelm@20807
  2200
* Linear arithmetic now splits certain operators (e.g. min, max, abs)
wenzelm@24800
  2201
also when invoked by the simplifier.  This results in the Simplifier
wenzelm@24800
  2202
being more powerful on arithmetic goals.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  2203
Configuration option fast_arith_split_limit=0 recovers the old
wenzelm@24800
  2204
behavior.
webertj@20217
  2205
wenzelm@22126
  2206
* Support for hex (0x20) and binary (0b1001) numerals.
wenzelm@19254
  2207
wenzelm@20807
  2208
* New method: reify eqs (t), where eqs are equations for an
wenzelm@20807
  2209
interpretation I :: 'a list => 'b => 'c and t::'c is an optional
wenzelm@20807
  2210
parameter, computes a term s::'b and a list xs::'a list and proves the
wenzelm@20807
  2211
theorem I xs s = t. This is also known as reification or quoting. The
wenzelm@20807
  2212
resulting theorem is applied to the subgoal to substitute t with I xs
wenzelm@20807
  2213
s.  If t is omitted, the subgoal itself is reified.
wenzelm@20807
  2214
wenzelm@20807
  2215
* New method: reflection corr_thm eqs (t). The parameters eqs and (t)
wenzelm@20807
  2216
are as explained above. corr_thm is a theorem for I vs (f t) = I vs t,
wenzelm@20807
  2217
where f is supposed to be a computable function (in the sense of code
wenzelm@20807
  2218
generattion). The method uses reify to compute s and xs as above then
wenzelm@20807
  2219
applies corr_thm and uses normalization by evaluation to "prove" f s =
wenzelm@20807
  2220
r and finally gets the theorem t = r, which is again applied to the
wenzelm@25177
  2221
subgoal. An Example is available in src/HOL/ex/ReflectionEx.thy.
wenzelm@25177
  2222
wenzelm@25177
  2223
* Reflection: Automatic reification now handels binding, an example is
wenzelm@25177
  2224
available in src/HOL/ex/ReflectionEx.thy
wenzelm@20807
  2225
wenzelm@25397
  2226
* HOL-Statespace: ``State Spaces: The Locale Way'' introduces a
schirmer@25409
  2227
command 'statespace' that is similar to 'record', but introduces an
wenzelm@25397
  2228
abstract specification based on the locale infrastructure instead of
wenzelm@25397
  2229
HOL types.  This leads to extra flexibility in composing state spaces,
wenzelm@25397
  2230
in particular multiple inheritance and renaming of components.

huffman@22971
  2236
inputs so that root n (- x) = - root n x and sqrt (- x) = - sqrt x.
huffman@22971
  2237
Nonnegativity side conditions have been removed from many lemmas, so

reals into other types. The overloaded constant Reals :: 'a set is now
wenzelm@24800

wenzelm@24643
  2316
* ML basics: just one true type int, which coincides with IntInf.int
wenzelm@24643
  2317
(even on SML/NJ).
wenzelm@24643
  2318
wenzelm@22138
  2319
* ML within Isar: antiquotations allow to embed statically-checked
wenzelm@22138
  2320
formal entities in the source, referring to the context available at
wenzelm@22138
  2321
compile-time.  For example:
wenzelm@22138
  2322
wenzelm@25142
  2323
ML {* @{sort "{zero,one}"} *}
wenzelm@22138
  2324
ML {* @{typ "'a => 'b"} *}
wenzelm@22138
  2325
ML {* @{term "%x. x"} *}
wenzelm@22138
  2326
ML {* @{prop "x == y"} *}
wenzelm@22138
  2327
ML {* @{ctyp "'a => 'b"} *}
wenzelm@22138
  2328
ML {* @{cterm "%x. x"} *}
wenzelm@22138
  2329
ML {* @{cprop "x == y"} *}
wenzelm@22138
  2330
ML {* @{thm asm_rl} *}

  2345
The same works for sources being ``used'' within an Isar context.
wenzelm@22151
  2346
wenzelm@22152
  2347
* ML in Isar: improved error reporting; extra verbosity with
wenzelm@24706
  2348
ML_Context.trace enabled.
wenzelm@22152
  2349
wenzelm@19032
  2350
* Pure/General/table.ML: the join operations now works via exceptions
wenzelm@24706
  2351
DUP/SAME instead of type option. This is simpler in simple cases, and
wenzelm@19081
  2352
admits slightly more efficient complex applications.
wenzelm@18446
  2353
wenzelm@24800
  2354
* Pure: 'advanced' translation functions (parse_translation etc.) now
wenzelm@24800
  2355
use Context.generic instead of just theory.
wenzelm@24800
  2356
wenzelm@18642
  2357
* Pure: datatype Context.generic joins theory/Proof.context and
wenzelm@18644
  2358
provides some facilities for code that works in either kind of
wenzelm@18642
  2359
context, notably GenericDataFun for uniform theory and proof data.
wenzelm@18642
  2360
wenzelm@18737
  2361
* Pure: simplified internal attribute type, which is now always
wenzelm@24706
  2362
Context.generic * thm -> Context.generic * thm. Global (theory) vs.
wenzelm@24706
  2363
local (Proof.context) attributes have been discontinued, while
wenzelm@24706
  2364
minimizing code duplication. Thm.rule_attribute and
wenzelm@24706
  2365
Thm.declaration_attribute build canonical attributes; see also structure
wenzelm@24706
  2366
Context for further operations on Context.generic, notably
wenzelm@24706
  2367
GenericDataFun. INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt attribute type
wenzelm@19006
  2368
declarations and definitions.
wenzelm@19006
  2369
wenzelm@24800
  2370
* Context data interfaces (Theory/Proof/GenericDataFun): removed
wenzelm@24800
  2371
name/print, uninitialized data defaults to ad-hoc copy of empty value,
wenzelm@24800
  2372
init only required for impure data. INCOMPATIBILITY: empty really need
wenzelm@24800
  2373
to be empty (no dependencies on theory content!)
wenzelm@24800
  2374
wenzelm@19508
  2375
* Pure/kernel: consts certification ignores sort constraints given in
wenzelm@24800
  2376
signature declarations. (This information is not relevant to the
wenzelm@24800
  2377
logic, but only for type inference.) SIGNIFICANT INTERNAL CHANGE,
wenzelm@24800
  2378
potential INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@19508
  2379
wenzelm@19508
  2380
* Pure: axiomatic type classes are now purely definitional, with
wenzelm@19508
  2381
explicit proofs of class axioms and super class relations performed
wenzelm@24706
  2382
internally. See Pure/axclass.ML for the main internal interfaces --
wenzelm@19508
  2383
notably AxClass.define_class supercedes AxClass.add_axclass, and
wenzelm@24706
  2384
AxClass.axiomatize_class/classrel/arity supersede
wenzelm@19508
  2385
Sign.add_classes/classrel/arities.
wenzelm@19508
  2386
wenzelm@19006
  2387
* Pure/Isar: Args/Attrib parsers operate on Context.generic --
wenzelm@19006
  2388
global/local versions on theory vs. Proof.context have been
wenzelm@19006
  2389
discontinued; Attrib.syntax and Method.syntax have been adapted
wenzelm@19006
  2390
accordingly.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt parser expressions for
wenzelm@19006
  2391
attributes, methods, etc.
wenzelm@18642
  2392
wenzelm@18446
  2393
* Pure: several functions of signature "... -> theory -> theory * ..."
wenzelm@18446
  2394
have been reoriented to "... -> theory -> ... * theory" in order to
wenzelm@18446
  2395
allow natural usage in combination with the ||>, ||>>, |-> and
wenzelm@18446
  2396
fold_map combinators.
haftmann@18051
  2397
wenzelm@21647
  2398
* Pure: official theorem names (closed derivations) and additional
wenzelm@21647
  2399
comments (tags) are now strictly separate.  Name hints -- which are
wenzelm@21647
  2400
maintained as tags -- may be attached any time without affecting the
wenzelm@21647
  2401
derivation.
wenzelm@21647
  2402
wenzelm@18020
  2403
* Pure: primitive rule lift_rule now takes goal cterm instead of an
wenzelm@18145
  2404
actual goal state (thm).  Use Thm.lift_rule (Thm.cprem_of st i) to
wenzelm@18020
  2405
achieve the old behaviour.
wenzelm@18020
  2406
wenzelm@18020
  2407
* Pure: the "Goal" constant is now called "prop", supporting a
wenzelm@18020
  2408
slightly more general idea of ``protecting'' meta-level rule
wenzelm@18020
  2409
statements.
wenzelm@18020
  2410
wenzelm@20040
  2411
* Pure: Logic.(un)varify only works in a global context, which is now
wenzelm@20040
  2412
enforced instead of silently assumed.  INCOMPATIBILITY, may use
wenzelm@20040
  2413
Logic.legacy_(un)varify as temporary workaround.
wenzelm@20040
  2414
wenzelm@20090
  2415
* Pure: structure Name provides scalable operations for generating
wenzelm@20090
  2416
internal variable names, notably Name.variants etc.  This replaces
wenzelm@20090
  2417
some popular functions from term.ML:
wenzelm@20090
  2418
wenzelm@20090
  2419
  Term.variant		->  Name.variant
wenzelm@24800
  2420
  Term.variantlist	->  Name.variant_list
wenzelm@20090
  2421
  Term.invent_names	->  Name.invent_list
wenzelm@20090
  2422
wenzelm@20090
  2423
Note that low-level renaming rarely occurs in new code -- operations
wenzelm@20090
  2424
from structure Variable are used instead (see below).
wenzelm@20090
  2425
wenzelm@20040
  2426
* Pure: structure Variable provides fundamental operations for proper
wenzelm@20040
  2427
treatment of fixed/schematic variables in a context.  For example,
wenzelm@20040
  2428
Variable.import introduces fixes for schematics of given facts and
wenzelm@20040
  2429
Variable.export reverses the effect (up to renaming) -- this replaces
wenzelm@20040
  2430
various freeze_thaw operations.
wenzelm@20040
  2431
wenzelm@18567
  2432
* Pure: structure Goal provides simple interfaces for
wenzelm@17981
  2433
init/conclude/finish and tactical prove operations (replacing former
wenzelm@20040
  2434
Tactic.prove).  Goal.prove is the canonical way to prove results
wenzelm@20040
  2435
within a given context; Goal.prove_global is a degraded version for
wenzelm@20040
  2436
theory level goals, including a global Drule.standard.  Note that
wenzelm@20040
  2437
OldGoals.prove_goalw_cterm has long been obsolete, since it is
wenzelm@20040
  2438
ill-behaved in a local proof context (e.g. with local fixes/assumes or
wenzelm@20040
  2439
in a locale context).
wenzelm@17981
  2440
wenzelm@24706
  2441
* Pure/Syntax: generic interfaces for parsing (Syntax.parse_term etc.)
wenzelm@24706
  2442
and type checking (Syntax.check_term etc.), with common combinations
wenzelm@24706
  2443
(Syntax.read_term etc.). These supersede former Sign.read_term etc.
wenzelm@24706
  2444
which are considered legacy and await removal.
wenzelm@24706
  2445
wenzelm@24920
  2446
* Pure/Syntax: generic interfaces for type unchecking
wenzelm@24920
  2447
(Syntax.uncheck_terms etc.) and unparsing (Syntax.unparse_term etc.),
wenzelm@24920
  2448
with common combinations (Syntax.pretty_term, Syntax.string_of_term
wenzelm@24920
  2449
etc.).  Former Sign.pretty_term, Sign.string_of_term etc. are still
wenzelm@24924
  2450
available for convenience, but refer to the very same operations using
wenzelm@24924
  2451
a mere theory instead of a full context.
wenzelm@24920
  2452
wenzelm@18815
  2453
* Isar: simplified treatment of user-level errors, using exception
wenzelm@18687
  2454
ERROR of string uniformly.  Function error now merely raises ERROR,
wenzelm@18686
  2455
without any side effect on output channels.  The Isar toplevel takes
wenzelm@18686
  2456
care of proper display of ERROR exceptions.  ML code may use plain
wenzelm@18686
  2457
handle/can/try; cat_error may be used to concatenate errors like this:
wenzelm@18686
  2458
wenzelm@18686
  2459
  ... handle ERROR msg => cat_error msg "..."
wenzelm@18686
  2460
wenzelm@18686
  2461
Toplevel ML code (run directly or through the Isar toplevel) may be
wenzelm@18687
  2462
embedded into the Isar toplevel with exception display/debug like
wenzelm@18687
  2463
this:
wenzelm@18686
  2464
wenzelm@18686
  2465
  Isar.toplevel (fn () => ...)
wenzelm@18686
  2466
wenzelm@18686
  2467
INCOMPATIBILITY, removed special transform_error facilities, removed
wenzelm@18686
  2468
obsolete variants of user-level exceptions (ERROR_MESSAGE,
wenzelm@18686
  2469
Context.PROOF, ProofContext.CONTEXT, Proof.STATE, ProofHistory.FAIL)
wenzelm@18686
  2470
-- use plain ERROR instead.
wenzelm@18686
  2471
wenzelm@18815
  2472
* Isar: theory setup now has type (theory -> theory), instead of a
wenzelm@18722
  2473
list.  INCOMPATIBILITY, may use #> to compose setup functions.
wenzelm@18722
  2474
wenzelm@24706
  2475
* Isar: ML toplevel pretty printer for type Proof.context, subject to
wenzelm@24706
  2476
ProofContext.debug/verbose flags.
wenzelm@18815
  2477
wenzelm@18815
  2478
* Isar: Toplevel.theory_to_proof admits transactions that modify the
wenzelm@18815
  2479
theory before entering a proof state.  Transactions now always see a
wenzelm@18815
  2480
quasi-functional intermediate checkpoint, both in interactive and
wenzelm@18590
  2481
batch mode.
wenzelm@18567
  2482
wenzelm@24867
  2483
* Isar: simplified interfaces for outer syntax.  Renamed
wenzelm@24867
  2484
OuterSyntax.add_keywords to OuterSyntax.keywords.  Removed
wenzelm@24867
  2485
OuterSyntax.add_parsers -- this functionality is now included in
wenzelm@24867
  2486
OuterSyntax.command etc.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24867
  2487
wenzelm@17878
  2488
* Simplifier: the simpset of a running simplification process now
wenzelm@17878
  2489
contains a proof context (cf. Simplifier.the_context), which is the
wenzelm@17878
  2490
very context that the initial simpset has been retrieved from (by
wenzelm@17890
  2491
simpset_of/local_simpset_of).  Consequently, all plug-in components
wenzelm@17878
  2492
(solver, looper etc.) may depend on arbitrary proof data.
wenzelm@17878
  2493
wenzelm@17878
  2494
* Simplifier.inherit_context inherits the proof context (plus the
wenzelm@17878
  2495
local bounds) of the current simplification process; any simproc
wenzelm@17878
  2496
etc. that calls the Simplifier recursively should do this!  Removed
wenzelm@17878
  2497
former Simplifier.inherit_bounds, which is already included here --
wenzelm@17890
  2498
INCOMPATIBILITY.  Tools based on low-level rewriting may even have to
wenzelm@17890
  2499
specify an explicit context using Simplifier.context/theory_context.
wenzelm@17878
  2500
wenzelm@17878
  2501
* Simplifier/Classical Reasoner: more abstract interfaces
wenzelm@17878
  2502
change_simpset/claset for modifying the simpset/claset reference of a
wenzelm@17878
  2503
theory; raw versions simpset/claset_ref etc. have been discontinued --
wenzelm@17878
  2504
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17878
  2505
wenzelm@18540
  2506
* Provers: more generic wrt. syntax of object-logics, avoid hardwired
wenzelm@18540
  2507
"Trueprop" etc.
wenzelm@18540
  2508

*** System ***
wenzelm@20988

wenzelm@25433
  2512
* settings: the default heap location within ISABELLE_HOME_USER now
wenzelm@25433
  2513
includes ISABELLE_IDENTIFIER.  This simplifies use of multiple
wenzelm@25433
  2514
Isabelle installations.
wenzelm@21471
  2515
wenzelm@20988
  2516

* Basic Isabelle mode for jEdit, see Isabelle/lib/jedit/.
wenzelm@24891
  2521
wenzelm@24801
  2522
* Support for parallel execution, using native multicore support of
wenzelm@24800
  2523
Poly/ML 5.1.  The theory loader exploits parallelism when processing
wenzelm@24800
  2524
independent theories, according to the given theory header
wenzelm@24800
  2525
specifications. The maximum number of worker threads is specified via
wenzelm@24800
  2526
usedir option -M or the "max-threads" setting in Proof General. A
wenzelm@24800
  2527
speedup factor of 1.5--3.5 can be expected on a 4-core machine, and up
wenzelm@24800
  2528
to 6 on a 8-core machine.  User-code needs to observe certain
wenzelm@24800
  2529
guidelines for thread-safe programming, see appendix A in the Isar

* Theory headers: the new header syntax for Isar theories is
nipkow@15130
  2540
nipkow@15130
  2541
  theory <name>
wenzelm@16234
  2542
  imports <theory1> ... <theoryN>
wenzelm@16234

  uses <file1> ... <fileM>
nipkow@15130
  2544
  begin
nipkow@15130
  2545
wenzelm@16234
  2546
where the 'uses' part is optional.  The previous syntax
wenzelm@16234
  2547
wenzelm@16234
  2548
  theory <name> = <theory1> + ... + <theoryN>:
wenzelm@16234
  2549
wenzelm@16717
  2550
will disappear in the next release.  Use isatool fixheaders to convert
wenzelm@16717
  2551
existing theory files.  Note that there is no change in ancient
wenzelm@17371
  2552
non-Isar theories now, but these will disappear soon.
nipkow@15130
  2553
berghofe@15475

* Theory loader: parent theories can now also be referred to via
wenzelm@16234
  2555
relative and absolute paths.
wenzelm@16234
  2556
wenzelm@17408
  2557
* Command 'find_theorems' searches for a list of criteria instead of a
wenzelm@17408
  2558
list of constants. Known criteria are: intro, elim, dest, name:string,
wenzelm@17408
  2559
simp:term, and any term. Criteria can be preceded by '-' to select
wenzelm@17408
  2560
theorems that do not match. Intro, elim, dest select theorems that
wenzelm@17408
  2561
match the current goal, name:s selects theorems whose fully qualified
wenzelm@17408
  2562
name contain s, and simp:term selects all simplification rules whose
wenzelm@17408
  2563
lhs match term.  Any other term is interpreted as pattern and selects
wenzelm@17408
  2564
all theorems matching the pattern. Available in ProofGeneral under
wenzelm@17408
  2565
'ProofGeneral -> Find Theorems' or C-c C-f.  Example:
wenzelm@16234
  2566
wenzelm@17275
  2567
  C-c C-f (100) "(_::nat) + _ + _" intro -name: "HOL."
wenzelm@16234
  2568
wenzelm@16234
  2569
prints the last 100 theorems matching the pattern "(_::nat) + _ + _",
wenzelm@16234
  2570
matching the current goal as introduction rule and not having "HOL."
wenzelm@16234
  2571
in their name (i.e. not being defined in theory HOL).
wenzelm@16013
  2572
wenzelm@17408
  2573
* Command 'thms_containing' has been discontinued in favour of

  2574
'find_theorems'; INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17408
  2575
wenzelm@17385
  2576
* Communication with Proof General is now 8bit clean, which means that
wenzelm@17385
  2577
Unicode text in UTF-8 encoding may be used within theory texts (both
wenzelm@17408

Classical Reasoner.  Typical big applications run around 2 times

  2586
faster.

* Commands 'display_drafts' and 'print_drafts' perform simple output
wenzelm@16234
  2592
of raw sources.  Only those symbols that do not require additional
wenzelm@16234
  2593
LaTeX packages (depending on comments in isabellesym.sty) are
wenzelm@16234
  2594
displayed properly, everything else is left verbatim.  isatool display
wenzelm@16234
  2595
and isatool print are used as front ends (these are subject to the
wenzelm@16234
  2596
DVI/PDF_VIEWER and PRINT_COMMAND settings, respectively).

* Command tags control specific markup of certain regions of text,
wenzelm@17047
  2599
notably folding and hiding.  Predefined tags include "theory" (for
wenzelm@17047
  2600
theory begin and end), "proof" for proof commands, and "ML" for
wenzelm@17047
  2601
commands involving ML code; the additional tags "visible" and
wenzelm@17047
  2602
"invisible" are unused by default.  Users may give explicit tag
wenzelm@17047
  2603
specifications in the text, e.g. ''by %invisible (auto)''.  The
wenzelm@17047
  2604
interpretation of tags is determined by the LaTeX job during document
wenzelm@17047
  2605
preparation: see option -V of isatool usedir, or options -n and -t of
wenzelm@17047
  2606
isatool document, or even the LaTeX macros \isakeeptag, \isafoldtag,
wenzelm@17047
  2607
\isadroptag.

Several document versions may be produced at the same time via isatool
wenzelm@17047
  2610
usedir (the generated index.html will link all of them).  Typical
wenzelm@17047
  2611
specifications include ''-V document=theory,proof,ML'' to present
wenzelm@17047
  2612
theory/proof/ML parts faithfully, ''-V outline=/proof,/ML'' to fold
wenzelm@17047
  2613
proof and ML commands, and ''-V mutilated=-theory,-proof,-ML'' to omit
wenzelm@17047
  2614
these parts without any formal replacement text.  The Isabelle site
wenzelm@17047
  2615
default settings produce ''document'' and ''outline'' versions as
wenzelm@17047
  2616
specified above.

* Several new antiquotations:
wenzelm@15979
  2619
wenzelm@15979
  2620
  @{term_type term} prints a term with its type annotated;
wenzelm@15979
  2621
wenzelm@15979
  2622
  @{typeof term} prints the type of a term;
wenzelm@15979
  2623
wenzelm@16234
  2624
  @{const const} is the same as @{term const}, but checks that the
wenzelm@16234
  2625
  argument is a known logical constant;
wenzelm@15979
  2626
wenzelm@15979
  2627
  @{term_style style term} and @{thm_style style thm} print a term or
wenzelm@16234
  2628
  theorem applying a "style" to it
wenzelm@16234
  2629
wenzelm@17117
  2630
  @{ML text}
wenzelm@17117
  2631
wenzelm@16234
  2632
Predefined styles are 'lhs' and 'rhs' printing the lhs/rhs of
wenzelm@16234
  2633
definitions, equations, inequations etc., 'concl' printing only the
schirmer@17393
  2634
conclusion of a meta-logical statement theorem, and 'prem1' .. 'prem19'
wenzelm@16234
  2635
to print the specified premise.  TermStyle.add_style provides an ML
wenzelm@16234
  2636
interface for introducing further styles.  See also the "LaTeX Sugar"
