*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES ***
nipkow@10224
     6
wenzelm@11043
     7
* HOL: inductive package no longer splits induction rule aggressively,
wenzelm@11043
     8
but only as far as specified by the introductions given; the old
wenzelm@11043
     9
format may recovered via ML function complete_split_rule or attribute
wenzelm@11043
    10
'split_rule (complete)';
wenzelm@11043
    11
wenzelm@10998
    12
* HOL: induct renamed to lfp_induct, lfp_Tarski to lfp_unfold,
wenzelm@10998
    13
gfp_Tarski to gfp_unfold;
nipkow@10224
    14
paulson@10288
    15
* HOL: contrapos, contrapos2 renamed to contrapos_nn, contrapos_pp;
paulson@10288
    16
wenzelm@10858
    17
* HOL: infix "dvd" now has priority 50 rather than 70 (because it is a
wenzelm@10858
    18
relation); infix "^^" has been renamed "``"; infix "``" has been
wenzelm@10858
    19
renamed "`"; "univalent" has been renamed "single_valued";
nipkow@10793
    20
wenzelm@10998
    21
* HOL/Real: "rinv" and "hrinv" replaced by overloaded "inverse"
wenzelm@10998
    22
operation;
wenzelm@10998
    23
nipkow@10868
    24
* HOLCF: infix "`" has been renamed "$"; the symbol syntax is \<cdot>;
nipkow@10856
    25
wenzelm@10391
    26
* Isar: 'obtain' no longer declares "that" fact as simp/intro;
wenzelm@10391
    27
wenzelm@10401
    28
* Isar/HOL: method 'induct' now handles non-atomic goals; as a
wenzelm@10401
    29
consequence, it is no longer monotonic wrt. the local goal context
wenzelm@10401
    30
(which is now passed through the inductive cases);
wenzelm@10401
    31
wenzelm@10976
    32
* Document preparation: renamed standard symbols \<ll> to \<lless> and
wenzelm@10976
    33
\<gg> to \<ggreater>;
wenzelm@10976
    34
nipkow@10224

    36
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@10245
    37
wenzelm@10858
    38
* \isabellestyle{NAME} selects version of Isabelle output (currently
wenzelm@10858
    39
available: are "it" for near math-mode best-style output, "sl" for
wenzelm@10858
    40
slanted text style, and "tt" for plain type-writer; if no
wenzelm@10858
    41
\isabellestyle command is given, output is according to slanted
wenzelm@10858
    42
type-writer);
wenzelm@10858
    43
wenzelm@10322
    44
* support sub/super scripts (for single symbols only), input syntax is
wenzelm@10322
    45
like this: "A\<^sup>*" or "A\<^sup>\<star>";
wenzelm@10322
    46
wenzelm@10858
    47
* some more standard symbols; see Appendix A of the system manual for
wenzelm@10858
    48
the complete list;
wenzelm@10858
    49
wenzelm@10998
    50
* improved isabelle style files; more abstract symbol implementation
wenzelm@10998
    51
(should now use \isamath{...} and \isatext{...} in custom symbol
wenzelm@10998
    52
definitions);
wenzelm@10998
    53
wenzelm@10634
    54
* antiquotation @{goals} and @{subgoals} for output of *dynamic* goals
wenzelm@10634
    55
state; Note that presentation of goal states does not conform to
wenzelm@10634
    56
actual human-readable proof documents.  Please do not include goal
wenzelm@10634
    57
states into document output unless you really know what you are doing!
wenzelm@10322
    58
wenzelm@10862
    59
* isatool unsymbolize tunes sources for plain ASCII communication;
wenzelm@10862
    60
wenzelm@11050
    61
* no_document ML operator temporarily disables LaTeX document
wenzelm@11050
    62
generation;

    65
*** Isar ***
wenzelm@10306
    66
wenzelm@10547
    67
* Pure: Isar now suffers initial goal statements to contain unbound
wenzelm@10547
    68
schematic variables (this does not conform to actual readable proof
wenzelm@10547
    69
documents, due to unpredictable outcome and non-compositional proof
wenzelm@10547
    70
checking); users who know what they are doing may use schematic goals
wenzelm@10547
    71
for Prolog-style synthesis of proven results;
wenzelm@10547
    72
wenzelm@10391
    73
* Pure: assumption method (an implicit finishing) now handles actual
wenzelm@10391
    74
rules as well;
wenzelm@10391
    75
wenzelm@10391
    76
* Pure: improved 'obtain' --- moved to Pure, insert "that" into
wenzelm@10391
    77
initial goal, declare "that" only as Pure intro (only for single
wenzelm@10391
    78
steps); the "that" rule assumption may now be involved in implicit
wenzelm@10391
    79
finishing, thus ".." becomes a feasible for trivial obtains;
wenzelm@10391
    80
wenzelm@10391
    81
* Pure: default proof step now includes 'intro_classes'; thus trivial
wenzelm@10391
    82
instance proofs may be performed by "..";
wenzelm@10391
    83
wenzelm@10391
    84
* Pure: ?thesis / ?this / "..." now work for pure meta-level
wenzelm@10391
    85
statements as well;
wenzelm@10306
    86
wenzelm@10858
    87
* Pure: the builtin notion of 'finished' goal now includes the ==-refl
wenzelm@10858
    88
rule (as well as the assumption rule);
wenzelm@10858
    89
wenzelm@10858
    90
* Pure: 'thm_deps' command visualizes dependencies of theorems and
wenzelm@10858
    91
lemmas, using the graph browser tool;
wenzelm@10858
    92
wenzelm@10944
    93
* Pure: predict failure of "show" in interactive mode;
wenzelm@10944
    94
wenzelm@11016
    95
* Pure: 'thms_containing' now takes actual terms as arguments;
wenzelm@11016
    96
wenzelm@10401
    97
* HOL: improved method 'induct' --- now handles non-atomic goals
wenzelm@10401
    98
(potential INCOMPATIBILITY); tuned error handling;
wenzelm@10401
    99
wenzelm@10557
   100
* HOL: cases and induct rules now provide explicit hints about the
wenzelm@10547
   101
number of facts to be consumed (0 for "type" and 1 for "set" rules);
wenzelm@10547
   102
any remaining facts are inserted into the goal verbatim;
wenzelm@10547
   103
wenzelm@10858
   104
* HOL: local contexts (aka cases) may now contain term bindings as
wenzelm@10858
   105
well; the 'cases' and 'induct' methods new provide a ?case binding for
wenzelm@10858
   106
the result to be shown in each case;
wenzelm@10858
   107
wenzelm@10770
   108
* HOL: added 'recdef_tc' command;
wenzelm@10770
   109
wenzelm@11016
   110
* isatool convert assists in eliminating legacy ML scripts;
wenzelm@11016
   111
wenzelm@10306
   112
wenzelm@10245
   113
*** HOL ***
wenzelm@10245
   114
wenzelm@10245
   115
* HOL/Library: a collection of generic theories to be used together
wenzelm@10245
   116
with main HOL; the theory loader path already includes this directory
wenzelm@10245
   117
by default; the following existing theories have been moved here:
wenzelm@10245
   118
HOL/Induct/Multiset, HOL/Induct/Acc (as Accessible_Part), HOL/While
wenzelm@10337
   119
(as While_Combinator), HOL/Lex/Prefix (as List_Prefix);
wenzelm@10245
   120
wenzelm@10966
   121
* HOL/Unix: "Some aspects of Unix file-system security", a typical
wenzelm@10966
   122
modelling and verification task performed in Isabelle/HOL +
wenzelm@10966
   123
Isabelle/Isar + Isabelle document preparation (by Markus Wenzel).
wenzelm@10966
   124
wenzelm@10514
   125
* HOL basics: added overloaded operations "inverse" and "divide"
wenzelm@10726
   126
(infix "/"), syntax for generic "abs" operation, generic summation
wenzelm@10726
   127
operator;
wenzelm@10452
   128
wenzelm@10391
   129
* HOL/typedef: simplified package, provide more useful rules (see also
wenzelm@10391
   130
HOL/subset.thy);
wenzelm@10391
   131
wenzelm@10915
   132
* HOL/datatype: induction rule for arbitrarily branching datatypes is
wenzelm@10915
   133
now expressed as a proper nested rule (old-style tactic scripts may
wenzelm@10915
   134
require atomize_strip_tac to cope with non-atomic premises);
wenzelm@10915
   135
wenzelm@10915
   136
* HOL: renamed theory "Prod" to "Product_Type", renamed "split" rule
wenzelm@10915
   137
to "split_conv" (old name still available for compatibility);
wenzelm@10915
   138
wenzelm@10915
   139
* HOL: improved concrete syntax for strings (e.g. allows translation
wenzelm@10915
   140
rules with string literals);
wenzelm@10915
   141
wenzelm@10944
   142
* HOL-Hyperreal: a new target, extending HOL-Real with the hyperreals
wenzelm@10944
   143
and Fleuriot's mechanization of analysis;
paulson@10756
   144
paulson@10756
   145
* HOL-Real, HOL-Hyperreals: improved arithmetic simplification;
wenzelm@10391
   146
wenzelm@10858
   147
paulson@10474
   148
*** CTT ***
paulson@10474
   149
wenzelm@10547
   150
* CTT: x-symbol support for Pi, Sigma, -->, : (membership); note that
wenzelm@10547
   151
"lam" is displayed as TWO lambda-symbols
paulson@10474
   152
wenzelm@10547
   153
* CTT: theory Main now available, containing everything (that is, Bool
wenzelm@10547
   154
and Arith);
wenzelm@10547
   155
paulson@10474
   156
wenzelm@10391
   157
*** General ***
wenzelm@10391
   158
wenzelm@10664
   159
* print modes "brackets" and "no_brackets" control output of nested =>
wenzelm@10664
   160
(types) and ==> (props); the default behaviour is "brackets";
wenzelm@10664
   161
wenzelm@10634
   162
* system: support Poly/ML 4.0 (current beta versions);
wenzelm@10634
   163
wenzelm@10547
   164
* Pure: the Simplifier has been implemented properly as a derived rule
wenzelm@10547
   165
outside of the actual kernel (at last!); the overall performance
wenzelm@10547
   166
penalty in practical applications is about 50%, while reliability of
wenzelm@10547
   167
the Isabelle inference kernel has been greatly improved;
wenzelm@10547
   168
wenzelm@10391
   169
* Provers: fast_tac (and friends) now handle actual object-logic rules
wenzelm@10391
   170
as assumptions as well;
wenzelm@10391
   171
wenzelm@10391
   172
wenzelm@10245
   173
wenzelm@10103
   174
New in Isabelle99-1 (October 2000)

   177
*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES ***
paulson@8014
   178
wenzelm@8848
   179
* HOL: simplification of natural numbers is much changed; to partly
wenzelm@8848
   180
recover the old behaviour (e.g. to prevent n+n rewriting to #2*n)
wenzelm@8848
   181
issue the following ML commands:
wenzelm@8848
   182
wenzelm@8848
   183
  Delsimprocs Nat_Numeral_Simprocs.cancel_numerals;
wenzelm@8848
   184
  Delsimprocs [Nat_Numeral_Simprocs.combine_numerals];
paulson@8788
   185
wenzelm@10129
   186
* HOL: simplification no longer dives into case-expressions; this is
wenzelm@10129
   187
controlled by "t.weak_case_cong" for each datatype t;
wenzelm@10003
   188
wenzelm@10003
   189
* HOL: nat_less_induct renamed to less_induct;
wenzelm@10003
   190
wenzelm@10003
   191
* HOL: systematic renaming of the SOME (Eps) rules, may use isatool
wenzelm@10003
   192
fixsome to patch .thy and .ML sources automatically;
paulson@8967
   193
wenzelm@10003
   194
  select_equality  -> some_equality
wenzelm@10003
   195
  select_eq_Ex     -> some_eq_ex
wenzelm@10003
   196
  selectI2EX       -> someI2_ex
wenzelm@10003
   197
  selectI2         -> someI2
wenzelm@10003
   198
  selectI          -> someI
wenzelm@10003
   199
  select1_equality -> some1_equality
wenzelm@10003
   200
  Eps_sym_eq       -> some_sym_eq_trivial
wenzelm@10003
   201
  Eps_eq           -> some_eq_trivial
wenzelm@10003
   202
wenzelm@10003
   203
* HOL: exhaust_tac on datatypes superceded by new generic case_tac;
wenzelm@10003
   204
wenzelm@10003
   205
* HOL: removed obsolete theorem binding expand_if (refer to split_if
wenzelm@10003
   206
instead);
wenzelm@10003
   207
wenzelm@10003
   208
* HOL: the recursion equations generated by 'recdef' are now called
wenzelm@10003
   209
f.simps instead of f.rules;
wenzelm@10003
   210
wenzelm@10003
   211
* HOL: qed_spec_mp now also handles bounded ALL as well;
wenzelm@10003
   212
wenzelm@10003
   213
* HOL: 0 is now overloaded, so the type constraint ":: nat" may
wenzelm@10003
   214
sometimes be needed;
wenzelm@10003
   215
wenzelm@10003
   216
* HOL: the constant for "f``x" is now "image" rather than "op ``";
paulson@8014
   217
paulson@10065
   218
* HOL: the constant for "f-``x" is now "vimage" rather than "op -``";
paulson@10065
   219
wenzelm@9330
   220
* HOL: the disjoint sum is now "<+>" instead of "Plus"; the cartesian
wenzelm@9330
   221
product is now "<*>" instead of "Times"; the lexicographic product is
wenzelm@9330
   222
now "<*lex*>" instead of "**";
nipkow@8705
   223
wenzelm@10003
   224
* HOL: theory Sexp is now in HOL/Induct examples (it used to be part
wenzelm@10003
   225
of main HOL, but was unused); better use HOL's datatype package;
paulson@9971
   226
wenzelm@10137
   227
* HOL: removed "symbols" syntax for constant "override" of theory Map;
wenzelm@10137
   228
the old syntax may be recovered as follows:
wenzelm@10137
   229
wenzelm@10137
   230
  syntax (symbols)
wenzelm@10137
   231
    override  :: "('a ~=> 'b) => ('a ~=> 'b) => ('a ~=> 'b)"
wenzelm@10137
   232
      (infixl "\\<oplus>" 100)
wenzelm@10137
   233
wenzelm@8848
   234
* HOL/Real: "rabs" replaced by overloaded "abs" function;
wenzelm@8848
   235
wenzelm@8887
   236
* HOL/ML: even fewer consts are declared as global (see theories Ord,
wenzelm@8887
   237
Lfp, Gfp, WF); this only affects ML packages that refer to const names
wenzelm@8887
   238
internally;
wenzelm@8887
   239
wenzelm@10003
   240
* HOL and ZF: syntax for quotienting wrt an equivalence relation
wenzelm@10003
   241
changed from A/r to A//r;
wenzelm@9908
   242
wenzelm@10003
   243
* ZF: new treatment of arithmetic (nat & int) may break some old
wenzelm@10003
   244
proofs;
wenzelm@8921
   245
wenzelm@10003
   246
* Isar: renamed some attributes (RS -> THEN, simplify -> simplified,
wenzelm@10003
   247
rulify -> rule_format, elimify -> elim_format, ...);
paulson@9542
   248
wenzelm@9941
   249
* Isar/Provers: intro/elim/dest attributes changed; renamed
wenzelm@9941
   250
intro/intro!/intro!! flags to intro!/intro/intro? (in most cases, one
wenzelm@9937
   251
should have to change intro!! to intro? only); replaced "delrule" by
wenzelm@9937
   252
"rule del";
wenzelm@9437
   253
wenzelm@9612
   254
* Isar/HOL: renamed "intrs" to "intros" in inductive definitions;
wenzelm@9612
   255
wenzelm@9437
   256
* Provers: strengthened force_tac by using new first_best_tac;
oheimb@9402
   257
wenzelm@10003
   258
* LaTeX document preparation: several changes of isabelle.sty (see
wenzelm@10003
   259
lib/texinputs);
wenzelm@8729
   260
paulson@8014
   261
wenzelm@8487
   262
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@8358
   263
wenzelm@9198
   264
* formal comments (text blocks etc.) in new-style theories may now
wenzelm@9753
   265
contain antiquotations of thm/prop/term/typ/text to be presented
wenzelm@9753
   266
according to latex print mode; concrete syntax is like this:
wenzelm@9753
   267
@{term[show_types] "f(x) = a + x"};
wenzelm@9198
   268
wenzelm@8358
   269
* isatool mkdir provides easy setup of Isabelle session directories,
wenzelm@8518
   270
including proper document sources;
wenzelm@8358
   271
wenzelm@8358
   272
* generated LaTeX sources are now deleted after successful run
wenzelm@8358
   273
(isatool document -c); may retain a copy somewhere else via -D option
wenzelm@8358
   274
of isatool usedir;
wenzelm@8358
   275
wenzelm@8566
   276
* isatool usedir -D now lets isatool latex -o sty update the Isabelle
wenzelm@10003
   277
style files, achieving self-contained LaTeX sources and simplifying
wenzelm@10003
   278
LaTeX debugging;
wenzelm@8566
   279
wenzelm@8518
   280
* old-style theories now produce (crude) LaTeX output as well;
wenzelm@8358
   281
wenzelm@9057
   282
* browser info session directories are now self-contained (may be put
wenzelm@9437
   283
on WWW server seperately); improved graphs of nested sessions; removed
wenzelm@9437
   284
graph for 'all sessions';
wenzelm@9057
   285
wenzelm@10003
   286
* several improvements in isabelle style files; \isabellestyle{it}
wenzelm@10003
   287
produces fake math mode output; \isamarkupheader is now \section by
wenzelm@10003

*** Isar ***
wenzelm@8184
   292
wenzelm@10003
   293
* Isar/Pure: local results and corresponding term bindings are now
wenzelm@10003
   294
subject to Hindley-Milner polymorphism (similar to ML); this
wenzelm@10003
   295
accommodates incremental type-inference very nicely;
wenzelm@8283
   296
wenzelm@10003
   297
* Isar/Pure: new derived language element 'obtain' supports
wenzelm@10003
   298
generalized existence reasoning;
wenzelm@8621
   299
wenzelm@10003
   300
* Isar/Pure: new calculational elements 'moreover' and 'ultimately'
wenzelm@10003
   301
support accumulation of results, without applying any rules yet;
wenzelm@10003
   302
useful to collect intermediate results without explicit name
wenzelm@10003
   303
references, and for use with transitivity rules with more than 2
wenzelm@10003
   304
premises;
wenzelm@8184
   305
wenzelm@10003
   306
* Isar/Pure: scalable support for case-analysis type proofs: new
wenzelm@10003
   307
'case' language element refers to local contexts symbolically, as
wenzelm@10003
   308
produced by certain proof methods; internally, case names are attached
wenzelm@10003
   309
to theorems as "tags";
wenzelm@8440
   310
wenzelm@10003
   311
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'hide' removes declarations from
wenzelm@9330
   312
class/type/const name spaces;
wenzelm@9330
   313
wenzelm@10003
   314
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'defs' supports option "(overloaded)" to
wenzelm@9330
   315
indicate potential overloading;
wenzelm@9330
   316
wenzelm@10003
   317
* Isar/Pure: changed syntax of local blocks from {{ }} to { };
wenzelm@8621
   318
wenzelm@10003
   319
* Isar/Pure: syntax of sorts made 'inner', i.e. have to write
wenzelm@10003
   320
"{a,b,c}" instead of {a,b,c};
wenzelm@9011
   321
wenzelm@10003
   322
* Isar/Pure now provides its own version of intro/elim/dest
wenzelm@10003
   323
attributes; useful for building new logics, but beware of confusion
wenzelm@10003
   324
with the version in Provers/classical;
wenzelm@9612
   325
wenzelm@10003
   326
* Isar/Pure: the local context of (non-atomic) goals is provided via
wenzelm@10003
   327
case name 'antecedent';
wenzelm@8440
   328
wenzelm@10003
   329
* Isar/Pure: removed obsolete 'transfer' attribute (transfer of thms
wenzelm@10003
   330
to the current context is now done automatically);
wenzelm@9383
   331
wenzelm@10003
   332
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'method_setup' provides a simple interface
wenzelm@10003
   333
for definining proof methods in ML;
wenzelm@9612
   334
wenzelm@10003
   335
* Isar/Provers: intro/elim/dest attributes changed; renamed
wenzelm@9941
   336
intro/intro!/intro!! flags to intro!/intro/intro? (INCOMPATIBILITY, in
wenzelm@9941
   337
most cases, one should have to change intro!! to intro? only);
wenzelm@9941
   338
replaced "delrule" by "rule del";
wenzelm@8283
   339
wenzelm@10003
   340
* Isar/Provers: new 'hypsubst' method, plain 'subst' method and
wenzelm@10003
   341
'symmetric' attribute (the latter supercedes [RS sym]);
wenzelm@10003
   342
wenzelm@10003
   343
* Isar/Provers: splitter support (via 'split' attribute and 'simp'
wenzelm@10003
   344
method modifier); 'simp' method: 'only:' modifier removes loopers as
wenzelm@10003
   345
well (including splits);
wenzelm@10003
   346
wenzelm@10003
   347
* Isar/Provers: Simplifier and Classical methods now support all kind
wenzelm@10003
   348
of modifiers used in the past, including 'cong', 'iff', etc.
wenzelm@10003
   349
wenzelm@10003
   350
* Isar/Provers: added 'fastsimp' and 'clarsimp' methods (combination
wenzelm@10003
   351
of Simplifier and Classical reasoner);
wenzelm@10003
   352
wenzelm@10003
   353
* Isar/HOL: new proof method 'cases' and improved version of 'induct'
wenzelm@10003
   354
now support named cases; major packages (inductive, datatype, primrec,
wenzelm@10003
   355
recdef) support case names and properly name parameters;
wenzelm@9612
   356
wenzelm@10003
   357
* Isar/HOL: new transitivity rules for substitution in inequalities --
wenzelm@10003
   358
monotonicity conditions are extracted to be proven at end of
wenzelm@10003
   359
calculations;
wenzelm@10003
   360
wenzelm@10003
   361
* Isar/HOL: removed 'case_split' thm binding, should use 'cases' proof
wenzelm@10003
   362
method anyway;
wenzelm@10003
   363
wenzelm@10003
   364
* Isar/HOL: removed old expand_if = split_if; theorems if_splits =
wenzelm@10003
   365
split_if split_if_asm; datatype package provides theorems foo.splits =
wenzelm@10003
   366
foo.split foo.split_asm for each datatype;
wenzelm@10003
   367
wenzelm@10003
   368
* Isar/HOL: tuned inductive package, rename "intrs" to "intros"
wenzelm@10003
   369
(potential INCOMPATIBILITY), emulation of mk_cases feature for proof
wenzelm@10003
   370
scripts: new 'inductive_cases' command and 'ind_cases' method; (Note:
wenzelm@10003
   371
use "(cases (simplified))" method in proper proof texts);
wenzelm@10003
   372
wenzelm@10003
   373
* Isar/HOL: added global 'arith_split' attribute for 'arith' method;
wenzelm@10003
   374
wenzelm@10003
   375
* Isar: names of theorems etc. may be natural numbers as well;
wenzelm@10003
   376
wenzelm@10003
   377
* Isar: 'pr' command: optional arguments for goals_limit and
wenzelm@9724
   378
ProofContext.prems_limit; no longer prints theory contexts, but only
wenzelm@9724
   379
proof states;
wenzelm@8487
   380
wenzelm@10003
   381
* Isar: diagnostic commands 'pr', 'thm', 'prop', 'term', 'typ' admit
wenzelm@8518
   382
additional print modes to be specified; e.g. "pr(latex)" will print
wenzelm@8518
   383
proof state according to the Isabelle LaTeX style;
wenzelm@8487
   384
wenzelm@10003
   385
* Isar: improved support for emulating tactic scripts, including proof
wenzelm@9612
   386
methods 'rule_tac' etc., 'cut_tac', 'thin_tac', 'subgoal_tac',
wenzelm@9612
   387
'rename_tac', 'rotate_tac', 'tactic', and 'case_tac' / 'induct_tac'
wenzelm@9612
   388
(for HOL datatypes);
wenzelm@8534
   389
wenzelm@10003
   390
* Isar: simplified (more robust) goal selection of proof methods: 1st
wenzelm@10003
   391
goal, all goals, or explicit goal specifier (tactic emulation); thus
wenzelm@10003
   392
'proof method scripts' have to be in depth-first order;
wenzelm@8673
   393
wenzelm@10003
   394
* Isar: tuned 'let' syntax: replaced 'as' keyword by 'and';
wenzelm@8729
   395
wenzelm@10003
   396
* Isar: removed 'help' command, which hasn't been too helpful anyway;
wenzelm@10003
   397
should instead use individual commands for printing items
wenzelm@10003
   398
(print_commands, print_methods etc.);
wenzelm@9224
   399
wenzelm@10003
   400
* Isar: added 'nothing' --- the empty list of theorems;

wenzelm@10157
   421
laws, lattice operations versus set-theoretic ones, the Knaster-Tarski

recursive procedures, by David von Oheimb;
wenzelm@10164
   431
wenzelm@10003
   432
* HOL/Lambda: converted into new-style theory and document;
paulson@9542
   433
wenzelm@10003
   434
* HOL/ex/Multiquote: example of multiple nested quotations and
wenzelm@10003
   435
anti-quotations -- basically a generalized version of de-Bruijn
wenzelm@10003
   436
representation; very useful in avoiding lifting of operations;
wenzelm@8848
   437
wenzelm@9612
   438
* HOL/record: added general record equality rule to simpset; fixed
wenzelm@9612

well; admit "r" as field name;
paulson@9542

   442
* HOL: 0 is now overloaded over the new sort "zero", allowing its use with
paulson@8967
   443
other numeric types and also as the identity of groups, rings, etc.;
paulson@8967
   444
paulson@8967
   445
* HOL: new axclass plus_ac0 for addition with the AC-laws and 0 as identity.
paulson@8967
   446
Types nat and int belong to this axclass;
paulson@8967
   447
wenzelm@10003
   448
* HOL: greatly improved simplification involving numerals of type nat, int, real:
paulson@8788
   449
   (i + #8 + j) = Suc k simplifies to  #7 + (i + j) = k
paulson@8832
   450
   i*j + k + j*#3*i     simplifies to  #4*(i*j) + k
paulson@8832
   451
  two terms #m*u and #n*u are replaced by #(m+n)*u
paulson@8832
   452
    (where #m, #n and u can implicitly be 1; this is simproc combine_numerals)
paulson@8832
   453
  and the term/formula #m*u+x ~~ #n*u+y simplifies simplifies to #(m-n)+x ~~ y
paulson@8832
   454
    or x ~~ #(n-m)+y, where ~~ is one of = < <= or - (simproc cancel_numerals);
paulson@8736
   455
wenzelm@10003
   456
* HOL: meson_tac is available (previously in ex/meson.ML); it is a
wenzelm@10003
   457
powerful prover for predicate logic but knows nothing of clasets; see
wenzelm@10003

ex/mesontest.ML and ex/mesontest2.ML for example applications;
paulson@9835
   459
wenzelm@8848
   460
* HOL: new version of "case_tac" subsumes both boolean case split and
wenzelm@8440
   461
"exhaust_tac" on datatypes; INCOMPATIBILITY: exhaust_tac no longer
wenzelm@8518
   462
exists, may define val exhaust_tac = case_tac for ad-hoc portability;
wenzelm@8440
   463
wenzelm@8848
   464
* HOL: simplification no longer dives into case-expressions: only the
wenzelm@10129
   465
selector expression is simplified, but not the remaining arms; to
wenzelm@10129
   466
enable full simplification of case-expressions for datatype t, you may
wenzelm@10129
   467
remove t.weak_case_cong from the simpset, either globally (Delcongs
wenzelm@10129

[thm"t.weak_case_cong"];) or locally (delcongs [...]).
nipkow@8603

wenzelm@8848
   470
* HOL/recdef: the recursion equations generated by 'recdef' for
wenzelm@8848
   471
function 'f' are now called f.simps instead of f.rules; if all
wenzelm@8848
   472
termination conditions are proved automatically, these simplification
wenzelm@8848
   473
rules are added to the simpset, as in primrec; rules may be named
wenzelm@8848
   474
individually as well, resulting in a separate list of theorems for
wenzelm@8848
   475
each equation;
wenzelm@8848
   476
wenzelm@9489
   477
* HOL/While is a new theory that provides a while-combinator. It
wenzelm@9489
   478
permits the definition of tail-recursive functions without the
wenzelm@9489
   479
provision of a termination measure. The latter is necessary once the
wenzelm@9489
   480
invariant proof rule for while is applied.
nipkow@9457
   481
wenzelm@10003
   482
* HOL: new (overloaded) notation for the set of elements below/above

some element: {..u}, {..u(}, {l..}, {)l..}. See theory SetInterval.
nipkow@8925

   487
* HOL: new tactic induct_thm_tac: thm -> string -> int -> tactic
nipkow@9746
   488
induct_tac th "x1 ... xn" expects th to have a conclusion of the form
nipkow@9746

* HOL: theory Sexp now in HOL/Induct examples (it used to be part of
wenzelm@10003
   494
main HOL, but was unused);
nipkow@8626
   495
wenzelm@10003
   496
* HOL: fewer consts declared as global (e.g. have to refer to
wenzelm@10003
   497
"Lfp.lfp" instead of "lfp" internally; affects ML packages only);
wenzelm@8887
   498
wenzelm@10003
   499
* HOL: tuned AST representation of nested pairs, avoiding bogus output
wenzelm@10003
   500
in case of overlap with user translations (e.g. judgements over
wenzelm@10003
   501
tuples); (note that the underlying logical represenation is still

bogus);

paulson@9542
   506
wenzelm@10003

wenzelm@10003
   508
expressions over nat and int;
paulson@9542
   509
wenzelm@10003
   510
* ZF: new treatment of nat to minimize type-checking: all operators
wenzelm@10003
   511
coerce their operands to a natural number using the function natify,
wenzelm@10003
   512
making the algebraic laws unconditional;
paulson@9542
   513
wenzelm@10003
   514
* ZF: as above, for int: operators coerce their operands to an integer
wenzelm@10003
   515
using the function intify;
paulson@9542
   516
wenzelm@10003
   517
* ZF: the integer library now contains many of the usual laws for the
wenzelm@10003
   518
orderings, including $<=, and monotonicity laws for $+ and $*;
paulson@9542
   519
wenzelm@10003

   521
simplification;
paulson@9388
   522
wenzelm@10003
   523
* FOL and ZF: AddIffs now available, giving theorems of the form P<->Q

assumptions; note that auto_tac uses blast_tac internally as well;
wenzelm@10003
   531
wenzelm@10003
   532
* Provers: new functions rulify/rulify_no_asm: thm -> thm for turning
wenzelm@10003

outer -->/All/Ball into ==>/!!; qed_spec_mp now uses rulify_no_asm;
wenzelm@10003
   534
wenzelm@9941
   535

   536
explicit make_elim);
wenzelm@9941
   537
wenzelm@10003
   538
* Provers: Blast_tac now warns of and ignores "weak elimination rules" e.g.

  [| inj ?f;          ?f ?x = ?f ?y; ?x = ?y ==> ?W |] ==> ?W
wenzelm@10003

use instead the strong form,
wenzelm@10003
   541
  [| inj ?f; ~ ?W ==> ?f ?x = ?f ?y; ?x = ?y ==> ?W |] ==> ?W
wenzelm@10003
   542
in HOL, FOL and ZF the function cla_make_elim will create such rules
wenzelm@10003
   543
from destruct-rules;

wenzelm@8729
   552
wenzelm@10003
   553
* system: smart setup of canonical ML_HOME, ISABELLE_INTERFACE, and
wenzelm@10003
   554
XSYMBOL_HOME; no longer need to do manual configuration in most
wenzelm@10003
   555
situations;
wenzelm@10003
   556
wenzelm@9709
   557
* system: compression of ML heaps images may now be controlled via -c
wenzelm@9709
   558
option of isabelle and isatool usedir (currently only observed by
wenzelm@9709
   559
Poly/ML);
wenzelm@8358
   560
wenzelm@9981
   561
* system: isatool installfonts may handle X-Symbol fonts as well (very
wenzelm@9981
   562
useful for remote X11);
wenzelm@9981
   563
wenzelm@9709
   564
* system: provide TAGS file for Isabelle sources;
wenzelm@9052
   565
wenzelm@9288
   566
* ML: infix 'OF' is a version of 'MRS' with more appropriate argument
wenzelm@9288
   567
order;
wenzelm@9288
   568
wenzelm@8994
   569
* ML: renamed flags Syntax.trace_norm_ast to Syntax.trace_ast; global
wenzelm@8994
   570
timing flag supersedes proof_timing and Toplevel.trace;
wenzelm@8994
   571
wenzelm@10003
   572
* ML: new combinators |>> and |>>> for incremental transformations
wenzelm@10003
   573
with secondary results (e.g. certain theory extensions):
wenzelm@10003
   574
wenzelm@9330
   575
* ML: PureThy.add_defs gets additional argument to indicate potential
wenzelm@9330
   576
overloading (usually false);
wenzelm@9330
   577
wenzelm@10003
   578
* ML: PureThy.add_thms/add_axioms/add_defs now return theorems as
wenzelm@10003
   579
results;

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES (see below for more details) ***
paulson@5931
   587
paulson@6922
   588
* HOL: The THEN and ELSE parts of conditional expressions (if P then x else y)
paulson@6922
   589
are no longer simplified.  (This allows the simplifier to unfold recursive
paulson@6922
   590
functional programs.)  To restore the old behaviour, declare
wenzelm@7215
   591
wenzelm@7215
   592
    Delcongs [if_weak_cong];
paulson@6922
   593
wenzelm@6269
   594
* HOL: Removed the obsolete syntax "Compl A"; use -A for set
wenzelm@6269
   595
complement;
paulson@5931
   596
wenzelm@6269
   597
* HOL: the predicate "inj" is now defined by translation to "inj_on";
paulson@6174
   598
berghofe@7847
   599
* HOL/datatype: mutual_induct_tac no longer exists --
berghofe@7847
   600
  use induct_tac "x_1 ... x_n" instead of mutual_induct_tac ["x_1", ..., "x_n"]
berghofe@7847
   601
wenzelm@6386
   602
* HOL/typedef: fixed type inference for representing set; type
wenzelm@6386
   603
arguments now have to occur explicitly on the rhs as type constraints;
wenzelm@6386
   604
wenzelm@6269
   605
* ZF: The con_defs part of an inductive definition may no longer refer
wenzelm@6269
   606
to constants declared in the same theory;
nipkow@6057
   607
wenzelm@6269
   608
* HOL, ZF: the function mk_cases, generated by the inductive
wenzelm@6269
   609
definition package, has lost an argument.  To simplify its result, it
wenzelm@6269
   610
uses the default simpset instead of a supplied list of theorems.
paulson@6141
   611
wenzelm@7215
   612
* HOL/List: the constructors of type list are now Nil and Cons;
wenzelm@7215
   613
nipkow@7619
   614
* Simplifier: the type of the infix ML functions
wenzelm@8729
   615
        setSSolver addSSolver setSolver addSolver
nipkow@7619
   616
is now  simpset * solver -> simpset  where `solver' is a new abstract type
nipkow@7619
   617
for packaging solvers. A solver is created via
wenzelm@8729
   618
        mk_solver: string -> (thm list -> int -> tactic) -> solver
nipkow@7619
   619
where the string argument is only a comment.

   622
*** Proof tools ***
paulson@6069
   623
wenzelm@6343
   624
* Provers/Arith/fast_lin_arith.ML contains a functor for creating a
wenzelm@6343
   625
decision procedure for linear arithmetic. Currently it is used for
wenzelm@7593
   626
types `nat', `int', and `real' in HOL (see below); it can, should and
wenzelm@7593
   627
will be instantiated for other types and logics as well.
paulson@6069
   628
nipkow@7324
   629
* The simplifier now accepts rewrite rules with flexible heads, eg
nipkow@7324
   630
     hom ?f ==> ?f(?x+?y) = ?f ?x + ?f ?y
nipkow@7324
   631
  They are applied like any rule with a non-pattern lhs, i.e. by first-order
nipkow@7324
   632
  matching.

*** General ***
paulson@6014
   636
wenzelm@7986
   637
* New Isabelle/Isar subsystem provides an alternative to traditional
wenzelm@7215
   638
tactical theorem proving; together with the ProofGeneral/isar user
wenzelm@7215
   639
interface it offers an interactive environment for developing human
wenzelm@7215
   640
readable proof documents (Isar == Intelligible semi-automated
wenzelm@7886
   641
reasoning); for further information see isatool doc isar-ref,
wenzelm@7986
   642
src/HOL/Isar_examples and http://isabelle.in.tum.de/Isar/
wenzelm@7886
   643
wenzelm@9612
   644
* improved and simplified presentation of theories: better HTML markup
wenzelm@9612
   645
(including colors), graph views in several sizes; isatool usedir now
wenzelm@9612
   646
provides a proper interface for user theories (via -P option); actual
wenzelm@9612
   647
document preparation based on (PDF)LaTeX is available as well (for
wenzelm@9612
   648
new-style theories only); see isatool doc system for more information;
wenzelm@7215
   649
wenzelm@7252
   650
* native support for Proof General, both for classic Isabelle and
wenzelm@7986
   651
Isabelle/Isar;
wenzelm@7215
   652
wenzelm@7791
   653
* ML function thm_deps visualizes dependencies of theorems and lemmas,
wenzelm@7791
   654
using the graph browser tool;
wenzelm@7791
   655
wenzelm@6751
   656
* Isabelle manuals now also available as PDF;
wenzelm@6751
   657
wenzelm@6449
   658
* theory loader rewritten from scratch (may not be fully
wenzelm@6449
   659
bug-compatible); old loadpath variable has been replaced by show_path,
wenzelm@6671
   660
add_path, del_path, reset_path functions; new operations such as
wenzelm@7593
   661
update_thy, touch_thy, remove_thy, use/update_thy_only (see also
wenzelm@7593
   662
isatool doc ref);
wenzelm@6449
   663
wenzelm@7215
   664
* improved isatool install: option -k creates KDE application icon,
wenzelm@7215
   665
option -p DIR installs standalone binaries;
wenzelm@7215
   666
wenzelm@7215
   667
* added ML_PLATFORM setting (useful for cross-platform installations);
wenzelm@7215
   668
more robust handling of platform specific ML images for SML/NJ;
wenzelm@7215
   669
wenzelm@7886
   670
* the settings environment is now statically scoped, i.e. it is never
wenzelm@7986
   671
created again in sub-processes invoked from isabelle, isatool, or
wenzelm@7886
   672
Isabelle;
wenzelm@7886
   673
wenzelm@7215
   674
* path element specification '~~' refers to '$ISABELLE_HOME';
wenzelm@7215
   675
wenzelm@6343
   676
* in locales, the "assumes" and "defines" parts may be omitted if
wenzelm@6343
   677
empty;
wenzelm@5973
   678
wenzelm@6269
   679
* new print_mode "xsymbols" for extended symbol support (e.g. genuine
wenzelm@6269
   680
long arrows);
wenzelm@6259
   681
wenzelm@6343
   682
* new print_mode "HTML";
wenzelm@6343
   683
wenzelm@6343
   684
* new flag show_tags controls display of tags of theorems (which are
wenzelm@6343
   685
basically just comments that may be attached by some tools);
wenzelm@6343
   686
wenzelm@6461
   687
* Isamode 2.6 requires patch to accomodate change of Isabelle font
wenzelm@6461
   688
mode and goal output format:
wenzelm@6461
   689
wenzelm@6461

wenzelm@6461
   700
wenzelm@7450
   701
* function bind_thms stores lists of theorems (cf. bind_thm);
wenzelm@7450
   702
wenzelm@7593
   703
* new shorthand tactics ftac, eatac, datac, fatac;
wenzelm@7593
   704
wenzelm@7593
   705
* qed (and friends) now accept "" as result name; in that case the
wenzelm@7986
   706
theorem is not stored, but proper checks and presentation of the
wenzelm@7986
   707
result still apply;
wenzelm@7593
   708
wenzelm@7805
   709
* theorem database now also indexes constants "Trueprop", "all",
wenzelm@7805
   710
"==>", "=="; thus thms_containing, findI etc. may retrieve more rules;

   715
** HOL arithmetic **
wenzelm@7215
   716
wenzelm@6343
   717
* There are now decision procedures for linear arithmetic over nat and
wenzelm@6343
   718
int:
nipkow@6131
   719
wenzelm@6343
   720
1. arith_tac copes with arbitrary formulae involving `=', `<', `<=',
wenzelm@6343
   721
`+', `-', `Suc', `min', `max' and numerical constants; other subterms
wenzelm@6343
   722
are treated as atomic; subformulae not involving type `nat' or `int'
wenzelm@6343
   723
are ignored; quantified subformulae are ignored unless they are
wenzelm@6343
   724
positive universal or negative existential. The tactic has to be
wenzelm@6343
   725
invoked by hand and can be a little bit slow. In particular, the
wenzelm@6343
   726
running time is exponential in the number of occurrences of `min' and
wenzelm@6343
   727
`max', and `-' on `nat'.
nipkow@6131
   728
wenzelm@6343
   729
2. fast_arith_tac is a cut-down version of arith_tac: it only takes
wenzelm@6343
   730
(negated) (in)equalities among the premises and the conclusion into
wenzelm@6343
   731
account (i.e. no compound formulae) and does not know about `min' and
wenzelm@6343
   732
`max', and `-' on `nat'. It is fast and is used automatically by the
wenzelm@6343
   733
simplifier.
nipkow@6131
   734
wenzelm@6343
   735
NB: At the moment, these decision procedures do not cope with mixed
wenzelm@6343
   736
nat/int formulae where the two parts interact, such as `m < n ==>
wenzelm@6343
   737
int(m) < int(n)'.
oheimb@6028
   738
wenzelm@7215
   739
* HOL/Numeral provides a generic theory of numerals (encoded
wenzelm@7313
   740
efficiently as bit strings); setup for types nat/int/real is in place;
wenzelm@7215
   741
INCOMPATIBILITY: since numeral syntax is now polymorphic, rather than
wenzelm@7215
   742
int, existing theories and proof scripts may require a few additional
wenzelm@7215
   743
type constraints;
wenzelm@7215
   744
wenzelm@7215
   745
* integer division and remainder can now be performed on constant
wenzelm@7215
   746
arguments;
paulson@7157
   747
wenzelm@7215
   748
* many properties of integer multiplication, division and remainder
wenzelm@7215
   749
are now available;
paulson@6922
   750
paulson@7287
   751
* An interface to the Stanford Validity Checker (SVC) is available through the
paulson@7287
   752
tactic svc_tac.  Propositional tautologies and theorems of linear arithmetic
paulson@7287
   753
are proved automatically.  SVC must be installed separately, and its results
paulson@7287
   754
must be TAKEN ON TRUST (Isabelle does not check the proofs, but tags any
paulson@7287
   755
invocation of the underlying oracle).  For SVC see
paulson@7444
   756
  http://verify.stanford.edu/SVC
paulson@6922
   757
wenzelm@7125
   758

   764
(in Isabelle/Isar) -- by Gertrud Bauer;
wenzelm@7595
   765
wenzelm@7691
   766
* HOL/BCV: generic model of bytecode verification, i.e. data-flow
wenzelm@7691
   767
analysis for assembly languages with subtypes;
wenzelm@7691
   768
wenzelm@6278
   769
* HOL/TLA (Lamport's Temporal Logic of Actions): major reorganization
wenzelm@6278
   770
-- avoids syntactic ambiguities and treats state, transition, and
wenzelm@6278
   771
temporal levels more uniformly; introduces INCOMPATIBILITIES due to
wenzelm@6278
   772
changed syntax and (many) tactics;
wenzelm@6278
   773
wenzelm@7791
   774
* HOL/inductive: Now also handles more general introduction rules such
wenzelm@7791
   775
  as "ALL y. (y, x) : r --> y : acc r ==> x : acc r"; monotonicity
wenzelm@7791
   776
  theorems are now maintained within the theory (maintained via the
wenzelm@7791
   777
  "mono" attribute);
berghofe@7780
   778
wenzelm@7238
   779
* HOL/datatype: Now also handles arbitrarily branching datatypes
wenzelm@7238
   780
  (using function types) such as
wenzelm@7238
   781
wenzelm@7238
   782
  datatype 'a tree = Atom 'a | Branch "nat => 'a tree"
berghofe@7047
   783
wenzelm@7326
   784
* HOL/record: record_simproc (part of the default simpset) takes care
wenzelm@7326
   785
of selectors applied to updated records; record_split_tac is no longer
wenzelm@7327
   786
part of the default claset; update_defs may now be removed from the
wenzelm@7327
   787
simpset in many cases; COMPATIBILITY: old behavior achieved by
wenzelm@7326
   788
wenzelm@7326
   789
  claset_ref () := claset() addSWrapper record_split_wrapper;
wenzelm@7326
   790
  Delsimprocs [record_simproc]
wenzelm@7326
   791
wenzelm@6386
   792
* HOL/typedef: fixed type inference for representing set; type
wenzelm@6386
   793
arguments now have to occur explicitly on the rhs as type constraints;
wenzelm@6386
   794
paulson@7287
   795
* HOL/recdef (TFL): 'congs' syntax now expects comma separated list of theorem
paulson@7287
   796
names rather than an ML expression;
paulson@7287
   797
paulson@7287
   798
* HOL/defer_recdef (TFL): like recdef but the well-founded relation can be
paulson@7287
   799
supplied later.  Program schemes can be defined, such as
paulson@7287
   800
    "While B C s = (if B s then While B C (C s) else s)"
paulson@7287
   801
where the well-founded relation can be chosen after B and C have been given.
wenzelm@6563
   802
wenzelm@7215
   803
* HOL/List: the constructors of type list are now Nil and Cons;
wenzelm@7215
   804
INCOMPATIBILITY: while [] and infix # syntax is still there, of
wenzelm@7215
   805
course, ML tools referring to List.list.op # etc. have to be adapted;
wenzelm@7215
   806
wenzelm@7238
   807
* HOL_quantifiers flag superseded by "HOL" print mode, which is
wenzelm@7238
   808
disabled by default; run isabelle with option -m HOL to get back to
wenzelm@7238
   809
the original Gordon/HOL-style output;
wenzelm@7238
   810
wenzelm@7238
   811
* HOL/Ord.thy: new bounded quantifier syntax (input only): ALL x<y. P,
wenzelm@7238
   812
ALL x<=y. P, EX x<y. P, EX x<=y. P;
wenzelm@7238
   813
wenzelm@7238
   814
* HOL basic syntax simplified (more orthogonal): all variants of
wenzelm@7238
   815
All/Ex now support plain / symbolic / HOL notation; plain syntax for
wenzelm@7238
   816
Eps operator is provided as well: "SOME x. P[x]";
wenzelm@7238
   817
berghofe@7320
   818
* HOL/Sum.thy: sum_case has been moved to HOL/Datatype;
wenzelm@7261
   819
wenzelm@7280
   820
* HOL/Univ.thy: infix syntax <*>, <+>, <**>, <+> eliminated and made
wenzelm@7280
   821
thus available for user theories;
wenzelm@7280
   822
wenzelm@7300
   823
* HOLCF/IOA/Sequents: renamed 'Cons' to 'Consq' to avoid clash with
wenzelm@7300
   824
HOL/List; hardly an INCOMPATIBILITY since '>>' syntax is used all the
wenzelm@7300
   825
time;
wenzelm@7300
   826
wenzelm@7986
   827
* HOL: new tactic smp_tac: int -> int -> tactic, which applies spec

*** ZF ***
paulson@6064
   844
paulson@6064
   845
* new primrec section allows primitive recursive functions to be given
wenzelm@6269
   846
directly (as in HOL) over datatypes and the natural numbers;
paulson@6064
   847
wenzelm@6269
   848
* new tactics induct_tac and exhaust_tac for induction (or case
wenzelm@6269
   849
analysis) over datatypes and the natural numbers;
paulson@6064
   850
paulson@6064
   851
* the datatype declaration of type T now defines the recursor T_rec;
paulson@6064
   852
paulson@6141
   853
* simplification automatically does freeness reasoning for datatype
wenzelm@6269
   854
constructors;
paulson@6141
   855
wenzelm@6269
   856
* automatic type-inference, with AddTCs command to insert new
wenzelm@6269
   857
type-checking rules;
paulson@6155
   858
wenzelm@6269
   859
* datatype introduction rules are now added as Safe Introduction rules
wenzelm@6269
   860
to the claset;
paulson@6155
   861
wenzelm@6269
   862
* the syntax "if P then x else y" is now available in addition to
wenzelm@6269
   863
if(P,x,y);

*** Internal programming interfaces ***
wenzelm@6343
   867
wenzelm@7919
   868
* tuned simplifier trace output; new flag debug_simp;
wenzelm@7919
   869
wenzelm@7420
   870
* structures Vartab / Termtab (instances of TableFun) offer efficient
wenzelm@7420
   871
tables indexed by indexname_ord / term_ord (compatible with aconv);
wenzelm@7420
   872
wenzelm@6386
   873
* AxClass.axclass_tac lost the theory argument;
wenzelm@6386
   874
wenzelm@6343
   875
* tuned current_goals_markers semantics: begin / end goal avoids
wenzelm@6343
   876
printing empty lines;
wenzelm@6343
   877
wenzelm@6343
   878
* removed prs and prs_fn hook, which was broken because it did not
wenzelm@6343
   879
include \n in its semantics, forcing writeln to add one
wenzelm@6343
   880
uncoditionally; replaced prs_fn by writeln_fn; consider std_output:
wenzelm@6343
   881
string -> unit if you really want to output text without newline;
wenzelm@6343
   882
wenzelm@6343
   883
* Symbol.output subject to print mode; INCOMPATIBILITY: defaults to
wenzelm@6343
   884
plain output, interface builders may have to enable 'isabelle_font'
wenzelm@6343
   885
mode to get Isabelle font glyphs as before;
wenzelm@6343
   886
wenzelm@6343
   887
* refined token_translation interface; INCOMPATIBILITY: output length
wenzelm@6343
   888
now of type real instead of int;
wenzelm@6343
   889
wenzelm@7196
   890
* theory loader actions may be traced via new ThyInfo.add_hook
wenzelm@7196
   891
interface (see src/Pure/Thy/thy_info.ML); example application: keep
wenzelm@7196
   892
your own database of information attached to *whole* theories -- as
wenzelm@7196
   893
opposed to intra-theory data slots offered via TheoryDataFun;
wenzelm@7196
   894
wenzelm@7647
   895
* proper handling of dangling sort hypotheses (at last!);
wenzelm@7647
   896
Thm.strip_shyps and Drule.strip_shyps_warning take care of removing
wenzelm@7647
   897
extra sort hypotheses that can be witnessed from the type signature;
wenzelm@7986
   898
the force_strip_shyps flag is gone, any remaining shyps are simply
wenzelm@7986
   899
left in the theorem (with a warning issued by strip_shyps_warning);

   906
*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES (see below for more details) ***
wenzelm@4842
   907
wenzelm@5726
   908
* several changes of automated proof tools;
wenzelm@5373
   909
wenzelm@5726
   910
* HOL: major changes to the inductive and datatype packages, including
wenzelm@5726
   911
some minor incompatibilities of theory syntax;
berghofe@5214
   912
wenzelm@5726
   913
* HOL: renamed r^-1 to 'converse' from 'inverse'; 'inj_onto' is now
wenzelm@5217
   914
called `inj_on';
paulson@5160
   915
nipkow@5275
   916
* HOL: removed duplicate thms in Arith:
nipkow@5275
   917
  less_imp_add_less  should be replaced by  trans_less_add1
nipkow@5275
   918
  le_imp_add_le      should be replaced by  trans_le_add1
paulson@5160
   919
wenzelm@5726
   920
* HOL: unary minus is now overloaded (new type constraints may be
wenzelm@5726
   921
required);
paulson@5490
   922
wenzelm@5726
   923
* HOL and ZF: unary minus for integers is now #- instead of #~.  In
wenzelm@5726
   924
ZF, expressions such as n#-1 must be changed to n#- 1, since #-1 is
wenzelm@5726
   925
now taken as an integer constant.
paulson@5541
   926
wenzelm@5726
   927
* Pure: ML function 'theory_of' renamed to 'theory';
wenzelm@5397
   928
wenzelm@5363
   929
wenzelm@5127
   930
*** Proof tools ***
nipkow@4880
   931
nipkow@5657
   932
* Simplifier:
nipkow@5657
   933
  1. Asm_full_simp_tac is now more aggressive.
nipkow@5657
   934
     1. It will sometimes reorient premises if that increases their power to
nipkow@5657
   935
        simplify.
nipkow@5657
   936
     2. It does no longer proceed strictly from left to right but may also
nipkow@5657
   937
        rotate premises to achieve further simplification.
nipkow@5657
   938
     For compatibility reasons there is now Asm_lr_simp_tac which is like the
nipkow@5657
   939
     old Asm_full_simp_tac in that it does not rotate premises.
nipkow@5657
   940
  2. The simplifier now knows a little bit about nat-arithmetic.
nipkow@4880
   941
wenzelm@5127
   942
* Classical reasoner: wrapper mechanism for the classical reasoner now
wenzelm@5127
   943
allows for selected deletion of wrappers, by introduction of names for
wenzelm@5127
   944
wrapper functionals.  This implies that addbefore, addSbefore,
wenzelm@5127
   945
addaltern, and addSaltern now take a pair (name, tactic) as argument,
wenzelm@5127
   946
and that adding two tactics with the same name overwrites the first
wenzelm@5127
   947
one (emitting a warning).
oheimb@4824
   948
  type wrapper = (int -> tactic) -> (int -> tactic)
oheimb@4649
   949
  setWrapper, setSWrapper, compWrapper and compSWrapper are replaced by
oheimb@4824
   950
  addWrapper, addSWrapper: claset * (string * wrapper) -> claset
oheimb@4824
   951
  delWrapper, delSWrapper: claset *  string            -> claset
oheimb@4649
   952
  getWrapper is renamed to appWrappers, getSWrapper to appSWrappers;
oheimb@4649
   953
wenzelm@5705
   954
* Classical reasoner: addbefore/addSbefore now have APPEND/ORELSE
wenzelm@5726
   955
semantics; addbefore now affects only the unsafe part of step_tac
wenzelm@5726
   956
etc.; this affects addss/auto_tac/force_tac, so EXISTING PROOFS MAY
wenzelm@5726
   957
FAIL, but proofs should be fixable easily, e.g. by replacing Auto_tac
wenzelm@5726
   958
by Force_tac;
oheimb@5524
   959
wenzelm@5726
   960
* Classical reasoner: setwrapper to setWrapper and compwrapper to
wenzelm@5726
   961
compWrapper; added safe wrapper (and access functions for it);
oheimb@5524
   962
wenzelm@5127
   963
* HOL/split_all_tac is now much faster and fails if there is nothing
wenzelm@5726
   964
to split.  Some EXISTING PROOFS MAY REQUIRE ADAPTION because the order
wenzelm@5726
   965
and the names of the automatically generated variables have changed.
wenzelm@5726
   966
split_all_tac has moved within claset() from unsafe wrappers to safe
wenzelm@5726
   967
wrappers, which means that !!-bound variables are split much more
wenzelm@5726
   968
aggressively, and safe_tac and clarify_tac now split such variables.
wenzelm@5726
   969
If this splitting is not appropriate, use delSWrapper "split_all_tac".
wenzelm@5726
   970
Note: the same holds for record_split_tac, which does the job of
wenzelm@5726
   971
split_all_tac for record fields.
wenzelm@5127
   972
wenzelm@5726
   973
* HOL/Simplifier: Rewrite rules for case distinctions can now be added
wenzelm@5726
   974
permanently to the default simpset using Addsplits just like
wenzelm@5726
   975
Addsimps. They can be removed via Delsplits just like
wenzelm@5726
   976
Delsimps. Lower-case versions are also available.
wenzelm@5127
   977
wenzelm@5726
   978
* HOL/Simplifier: The rule split_if is now part of the default
wenzelm@5726
   979
simpset. This means that the simplifier will eliminate all occurrences
wenzelm@5726
   980
of if-then-else in the conclusion of a goal. To prevent this, you can
wenzelm@5726
   981
either remove split_if completely from the default simpset by
wenzelm@5726
   982
`Delsplits [split_if]' or remove it in a specific call of the
wenzelm@5726
   983
simplifier using `... delsplits [split_if]'.  You can also add/delete
wenzelm@5726
   984
other case splitting rules to/from the default simpset: every datatype
wenzelm@5726
   985
generates suitable rules `split_t_case' and `split_t_case_asm' (where
wenzelm@5726
   986
t is the name of the datatype).
wenzelm@5127
   987
wenzelm@5726
   988
* Classical reasoner / Simplifier combination: new force_tac (and
wenzelm@5127
   989
derivatives Force_tac, force) combines rewriting and classical
wenzelm@5127
   990
reasoning (and whatever other tools) similarly to auto_tac, but is
wenzelm@5726
   991
aimed to solve the given subgoal completely.
wenzelm@5127
   992
wenzelm@5127
   993
wenzelm@5127
   994
*** General ***
wenzelm@5127
   995
wenzelm@5217
   996
* new top-level commands `Goal' and `Goalw' that improve upon `goal'
wenzelm@5127
   997
and `goalw': the theory is no longer needed as an explicit argument -
wenzelm@5127
   998
the current theory context is used; assumptions are no longer returned
wenzelm@5127
   999
at the ML-level unless one of them starts with ==> or !!; it is
wenzelm@5217
  1000
recommended to convert to these new commands using isatool fixgoal
wenzelm@5217
  1001
(backup your sources first!);
wenzelm@4842
  1002
wenzelm@5217
  1003
* new top-level commands 'thm' and 'thms' for retrieving theorems from
wenzelm@5207
  1004
the current theory context, and 'theory' to lookup stored theories;
paulson@4806
  1005
paulson@5722
  1006
* new theory section 'locale' for declaring constants, assumptions and
paulson@5722
  1007
definitions that have local scope;
paulson@5722
  1008
wenzelm@5127
  1009
* new theory section 'nonterminals' for purely syntactic types;
wenzelm@4858
  1010
wenzelm@5127
  1011
* new theory section 'setup' for generic ML setup functions
wenzelm@5127
  1012
(e.g. package initialization);
wenzelm@4869
  1013
wenzelm@5131
  1014
* the distribution now includes Isabelle icons: see
wenzelm@5131
  1015
lib/logo/isabelle-{small,tiny}.xpm;
wenzelm@5131
  1016
wenzelm@5363
  1017
* isatool install - install binaries with absolute references to
wenzelm@5363
  1018
ISABELLE_HOME/bin;
wenzelm@5363
  1019
wenzelm@5572
  1020
* isatool logo -- create instances of the Isabelle logo (as EPS);
wenzelm@5572
  1021
wenzelm@5407
  1022
* print mode 'emacs' reserved for Isamode;
wenzelm@5407
  1023
wenzelm@5726
  1024
* support multiple print (ast) translations per constant name;
wenzelm@5726
  1025
wenzelm@6925
  1026
* theorems involving oracles are now printed with a suffixed [!];
wenzelm@6925
  1027
wenzelm@4711
  1028
paulson@4661
  1029
*** HOL ***
paulson@4661
  1030
wenzelm@5710
  1031
* there is now a tutorial on Isabelle/HOL (do 'isatool doc tutorial');
nipkow@5709
  1032
wenzelm@5217
  1033
* HOL/inductive package reorganized and improved: now supports mutual
paulson@5267
  1034
definitions such as
wenzelm@5217
  1035
wenzelm@5217
  1036
  inductive EVEN ODD
wenzelm@5217
  1037
    intrs
wenzelm@5217
  1038
      null "0 : EVEN"
wenzelm@5217
  1039
      oddI "n : EVEN ==> Suc n : ODD"
wenzelm@5217
  1040
      evenI "n : ODD ==> Suc n : EVEN"
wenzelm@5217
  1041
wenzelm@5217
  1042
new theorem list "elims" contains an elimination rule for each of the
wenzelm@5217
  1043
recursive sets; inductive definitions now handle disjunctive premises
wenzelm@5217
  1044
correctly (also ZF);
berghofe@5214
  1045
wenzelm@5217
  1046
INCOMPATIBILITIES: requires Inductive as an ancestor; component
wenzelm@5217
  1047
"mutual_induct" no longer exists - the induction rule is always
wenzelm@5217
  1048
contained in "induct";
wenzelm@5217
  1049
wenzelm@5217
  1050
wenzelm@5217
  1051
* HOL/datatype package re-implemented and greatly improved: now
paulson@5267
  1052
supports mutually recursive datatypes such as
wenzelm@5217
  1053
wenzelm@5217
  1054
  datatype
wenzelm@5217
  1055
    'a aexp = IF_THEN_ELSE ('a bexp) ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
  1056
            | SUM ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
  1057
            | DIFF ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
  1058
            | NUM 'a
wenzelm@5217
  1059
  and
wenzelm@5217
  1060
    'a bexp = LESS ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
  1061
            | AND ('a bexp) ('a bexp)
wenzelm@5217
  1062
            | OR ('a bexp) ('a bexp)
wenzelm@5217
  1063
paulson@5267
  1064
as well as indirectly recursive datatypes such as
berghofe@5214
  1065
wenzelm@5217
  1066
  datatype
wenzelm@5217
  1067
    ('a, 'b) term = Var 'a
wenzelm@5217
  1068
                  | App 'b ((('a, 'b) term) list)
berghofe@5214
  1069
wenzelm@5217
  1070
The new tactic  mutual_induct_tac [<var_1>, ..., <var_n>] i  performs
wenzelm@5217
  1071
induction on mutually / indirectly recursive datatypes.
wenzelm@5217
  1072
wenzelm@5217
  1073
Primrec equations are now stored in theory and can be accessed via
wenzelm@5217
  1074
<function_name>.simps.
wenzelm@5217
  1075
wenzelm@5217
  1076
INCOMPATIBILITIES:
berghofe@5214
  1077
wenzelm@5217
  1078
  - Theories using datatypes must now have theory Datatype as an
wenzelm@5217
  1079
    ancestor.
wenzelm@5217
  1080
  - The specific <typename>.induct_tac no longer exists - use the
wenzelm@5217
  1081
    generic induct_tac instead.
berghofe@5226
  1082
  - natE has been renamed to nat.exhaust - use exhaust_tac
wenzelm@5217
  1083
    instead of res_inst_tac ... natE. Note that the variable
berghofe@5226
  1084
    names in nat.exhaust differ from the names in natE, this
wenzelm@5217
  1085
    may cause some "fragile" proofs to fail.
wenzelm@5217
  1086
  - The theorems split_<typename>_case and split_<typename>_case_asm
wenzelm@5217
  1087
    have been renamed to <typename>.split and <typename>.split_asm.
wenzelm@5217
  1088
  - Since default sorts of type variables are now handled correctly,
wenzelm@5217
  1089
    some datatype definitions may have to be annotated with explicit
wenzelm@5217
  1090
    sort constraints.
wenzelm@5217
  1091
  - Primrec definitions no longer require function name and type
wenzelm@5217
  1092
    of recursive argument.
berghofe@5214
  1093
wenzelm@5217
  1094
Consider using isatool fixdatatype to adapt your theories and proof
wenzelm@5217
  1095
scripts to the new package (backup your sources first!).
wenzelm@5217
  1096
wenzelm@5217
  1097
wenzelm@5726
  1098
* HOL/record package: considerably improved implementation; now
wenzelm@5726
  1099
includes concrete syntax for record types, terms, updates; theorems
wenzelm@5726
  1100
for surjective pairing and splitting !!-bound record variables; proof
wenzelm@5726
  1101
support is as follows:
wenzelm@5726
  1102
wenzelm@5726
  1103
  1) standard conversions (selectors or updates applied to record
wenzelm@5726
  1104
constructor terms) are part of the standard simpset;
wenzelm@5726
  1105
wenzelm@5726
  1106
  2) inject equations of the form ((x, y) = (x', y')) == x=x' & y=y' are
wenzelm@5726
  1107
made part of standard simpset and claset via addIffs;
wenzelm@5726
  1108
wenzelm@5726
  1109
  3) a tactic for record field splitting (record_split_tac) is part of
wenzelm@5726
  1110
the standard claset (addSWrapper);
wenzelm@5726
  1111
wenzelm@5726
  1112
To get a better idea about these rules you may retrieve them via
wenzelm@5726
  1113
something like 'thms "foo.simps"' or 'thms "foo.iffs"', where "foo" is
wenzelm@5726
  1114
the name of your record type.
wenzelm@5726
  1115
wenzelm@5726
  1116
The split tactic 3) conceptually simplifies by the following rule:
wenzelm@5726
  1117
wenzelm@5726
  1118
  "(!!x. PROP ?P x) == (!!a b. PROP ?P (a, b))"
wenzelm@5726
  1119

  1120
Thus any record variable that is bound by meta-all will automatically
wenzelm@5726
  1121
blow up into some record constructor term, consequently the
wenzelm@5726
  1122
simplifications of 1), 2) apply.  Thus force_tac, auto_tac etc. shall
wenzelm@5726
  1123
solve record problems automatically.

  1126
* reorganized the main HOL image: HOL/Integ and String loaded by
wenzelm@5125
  1127
default; theory Main includes everything;
wenzelm@5125
  1128
paulson@5650
  1129
* automatic simplification of integer sums and comparisons, using cancellation;
paulson@5650
  1130
oheimb@5526
  1131
* added option_map_eq_Some and not_Some_eq to the default simpset and claset;
wenzelm@5127
  1132
wenzelm@5127
  1133
* added disj_not1 = "(~P | Q) = (P --> Q)" to the default simpset;
wenzelm@5127
  1134
wenzelm@5127
  1135
* many new identities for unions, intersections, set difference, etc.;
wenzelm@5127
  1136
wenzelm@5127
  1137
* expand_if, expand_split, expand_sum_case and expand_nat_case are now
wenzelm@5127
  1138
called split_if, split_split, split_sum_case and split_nat_case (to go
wenzelm@5127
  1139
with add/delsplits);
wenzelm@5125
  1140
wenzelm@5127
  1141
* HOL/Prod introduces simplification procedure unit_eq_proc rewriting
wenzelm@5127
  1142
(?x::unit) = (); this is made part of the default simpset, which COULD
wenzelm@5127
  1143
MAKE EXISTING PROOFS FAIL under rare circumstances (consider
wenzelm@5207
  1144
'Delsimprocs [unit_eq_proc];' as last resort); also note that
wenzelm@5207
  1145
unit_abs_eta_conv is added in order to counter the effect of
wenzelm@5207
  1146
unit_eq_proc on (%u::unit. f u), replacing it by f rather than by
wenzelm@5207
  1147
%u.f();
wenzelm@5125
  1148
wenzelm@5217
  1149
* HOL/Fun INCOMPATIBILITY: `inj_onto' is now called `inj_on' (which
wenzelm@5217
  1150
makes more sense);
berghofe@5109
  1151
paulson@5475
  1152
* HOL/Set INCOMPATIBILITY: rule `equals0D' is now a well-formed destruct rule;
paulson@5475
  1153
  It and 'sym RS equals0D' are now in the default  claset, giving automatic
paulson@5475
  1154
  disjointness reasoning but breaking a few old proofs.
paulson@5267
  1155
wenzelm@5217
  1156
* HOL/Relation INCOMPATIBILITY: renamed the relational operator r^-1
wenzelm@5217
  1157
to 'converse' from 'inverse' (for compatibility with ZF and some
wenzelm@5217
  1158
literature);
wenzelm@5085
  1159
wenzelm@5127
  1160
* HOL/recdef can now declare non-recursive functions, with {} supplied as
wenzelm@5127
  1161
the well-founded relation;
oheimb@4838
  1162
paulson@5490
  1163
* HOL/Set INCOMPATIBILITY: the complement of set A is now written -A instead of
paulson@5490
  1164
    Compl A.  The "Compl" syntax remains available as input syntax for this
paulson@5490
  1165
    release ONLY.
paulson@5490
  1166
wenzelm@5127
  1167
* HOL/Update: new theory of function updates:
wenzelm@5127
  1168
    f(a:=b) == %x. if x=a then b else f x
wenzelm@5127
  1169
may also be iterated as in f(a:=b,c:=d,...);
nipkow@5077
  1170
wenzelm@5127
  1171
* HOL/Vimage: new theory for inverse image of a function, syntax f-``B;
paulson@4899
  1172
nipkow@5282
  1173
* HOL/List:
nipkow@5282
  1174
  - new function list_update written xs[i:=v] that updates the i-th
nipkow@5282
  1175
    list position. May also be iterated as in xs[i:=a,j:=b,...].
nipkow@5428
  1176
  - new function `upt' written [i..j(] which generates the list
nipkow@5428
  1177
    [i,i+1,...,j-1], i.e. the upper bound is excluded. To include the upper
nipkow@5428
  1178
    bound write [i..j], which is a shorthand for [i..j+1(].
nipkow@5282
  1179
  - new lexicographic orderings and corresponding wellfoundedness theorems.
paulson@4779
  1180
wenzelm@5127
  1181
* HOL/Arith:
wenzelm@5127
  1182
  - removed 'pred' (predecessor) function;
wenzelm@5127
  1183
  - generalized some theorems about n-1;
wenzelm@5127
  1184
  - many new laws about "div" and "mod";
wenzelm@5127
  1185
  - new laws about greatest common divisors (see theory ex/Primes);
oheimb@4766
  1186
wenzelm@5127
  1187
* HOL/Relation: renamed the relational operator r^-1 "converse"
wenzelm@4842
  1188
instead of "inverse";
wenzelm@4711
  1189
nipkow@5651
  1190
* HOL/Induct/Multiset: a theory of multisets, including the wellfoundedness
nipkow@5651
  1191
  of the multiset ordering;
nipkow@5651
  1192
wenzelm@5127
  1193
* directory HOL/Real: a construction of the reals using Dedekind cuts
nipkow@5651
  1194
  (not included by default);
nipkow@4835
  1195
wenzelm@5127
  1196
* directory HOL/UNITY: Chandy and Misra's UNITY formalism;
wenzelm@4711
  1197
nipkow@5651
  1198
* directory HOL/Hoare: a new version of Hoare logic which permits many-sorted
nipkow@5651
  1199
  programs, i.e. different program variables may have different types.
nipkow@5651
  1200
paulson@5142
  1201
* calling (stac rew i) now fails if "rew" has no effect on the goal
paulson@5142
  1202
  [previously, this check worked only if the rewrite rule was unconditional]
paulson@5308
  1203
  Now rew can involve either definitions or equalities (either == or =).

paulson@4879
  1206
*** ZF ***
paulson@4879
  1207
paulson@5332
  1208
* theory Main includes everything; INCOMPATIBILITY: theory ZF.thy contains
paulson@5332
  1209
  only the theorems proved on ZF.ML;
paulson@5160
  1210
paulson@5475
  1211
* ZF INCOMPATIBILITY: rule `equals0D' is now a well-formed destruct rule;
paulson@5475
  1212
  It and 'sym RS equals0D' are now in the default  claset, giving automatic
paulson@5475
  1213
  disjointness reasoning but breaking a few old proofs.
paulson@5267
  1214
paulson@5160
  1215
* ZF/Update: new theory of function updates
paulson@5160
  1216
    with default rewrite rule  f(x:=y) ` z = if(z=x, y, f`z)
paulson@5160
  1217

paulson@5160
  1218

paulson@5142
  1222
  [previously, this check worked only if the rewrite rule was unconditional]
paulson@5308
  1223
  Now rew can involve either definitions or equalities (either == or =).
paulson@5142
  1224
paulson@5160
  1225
* case_tac provided for compatibility with HOL
paulson@5160
  1226
    (like the old excluded_middle_tac, but with subgoals swapped)

*** Internal programming interfaces ***
wenzelm@5002
  1230
wenzelm@5251
  1231
* Pure: several new basic modules made available for general use, see
wenzelm@5251
  1232
also src/Pure/README;
wenzelm@5207
  1233
wenzelm@5008
  1234
* improved the theory data mechanism to support encapsulation (data
wenzelm@5008
  1235
kind name replaced by private Object.kind, acting as authorization
wenzelm@5373
  1236
key); new type-safe user interface via functor TheoryDataFun; generic
wenzelm@5373
  1237
print_data function becomes basically useless;
wenzelm@5002
  1238
wenzelm@5251
  1239
* removed global_names compatibility flag -- all theory declarations
wenzelm@5251
  1240
are qualified by default;
wenzelm@5251
  1241
wenzelm@5085
  1242
* module Pure/Syntax now offers quote / antiquote translation
wenzelm@5085
  1243
functions (useful for Hoare logic etc. with implicit dependencies);
wenzelm@5373
  1244
see HOL/ex/Antiquote for an example use;
wenzelm@5085
  1245
wenzelm@5127
  1246
* Simplifier now offers conversions (asm_)(full_)rewrite: simpset ->
wenzelm@5127
  1247
cterm -> thm;
wenzelm@5127
  1248
wenzelm@5207
  1249
* new tactical CHANGED_GOAL for checking that a tactic modifies a
wenzelm@5207
  1250
subgoal;
paulson@5142
  1251
wenzelm@5251
  1252
* Display.print_goals function moved to Locale.print_goals;
wenzelm@5251
  1253
wenzelm@5731
  1254
* standard print function for goals supports current_goals_markers
wenzelm@5731
  1255
variable for marking begin of proof, end of proof, start of goal; the
wenzelm@5731
  1256
default is ("", "", ""); setting current_goals_markers := ("<proof>",
wenzelm@5731
  1257
"</proof>", "<goal>") causes SGML like tagged proof state printing,

  1265
*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES (see below for more details) ***
wenzelm@4410
  1266
wenzelm@4410
  1267
* changed lexical syntax of terms / types: dots made part of long
wenzelm@4410
  1268
identifiers, e.g. "%x.x" no longer possible, should be "%x. x";
wenzelm@4410
  1269
wenzelm@4410
  1270
* simpset (and claset) reference variable replaced by functions
wenzelm@4410
  1271
simpset / simpset_ref;
wenzelm@4410
  1272
wenzelm@4410
  1273
* no longer supports theory aliases (via merge) and non-trivial
wenzelm@4410
  1274
implicit merge of thms' signatures;
wenzelm@4410
  1275
wenzelm@4410
  1276
* most internal names of constants changed due to qualified names;
wenzelm@4410
  1277
wenzelm@4410
  1278
* changed Pure/Sequence interface (see Pure/seq.ML);
wenzelm@4410
  1279
wenzelm@3454
  1280
paulson@3715
  1281
*** General Changes ***
paulson@3715
  1282
wenzelm@4174
  1283
* hierachically structured name spaces (for consts, types, axms, thms
wenzelm@3943
  1284
etc.); new lexical class 'longid' (e.g. Foo.bar.x) may render much of
wenzelm@4108
  1285
old input syntactically incorrect (e.g. "%x.x"); COMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@4108
  1286
isatool fixdots ensures space after dots (e.g. "%x. x"); set
wenzelm@4174
  1287
long_names for fully qualified output names; NOTE: ML programs
wenzelm@4174
  1288
(special tactics, packages etc.) referring to internal names may have
wenzelm@4174
  1289
to be adapted to cope with fully qualified names; in case of severe
wenzelm@4174
  1290
backward campatibility problems try setting 'global_names' at compile
wenzelm@4174
  1291
time to have enrything declared within a flat name space; one may also
wenzelm@4174
  1292
fine tune name declarations in theories via the 'global' and 'local'
wenzelm@4174
  1293
section;
wenzelm@4108
  1294
wenzelm@4108
  1295
* reimplemented the implicit simpset and claset using the new anytype
wenzelm@4108
  1296
data filed in signatures; references simpset:simpset ref etc. are
wenzelm@4108
  1297
replaced by functions simpset:unit->simpset and
wenzelm@4108
  1298
simpset_ref:unit->simpset ref; COMPATIBILITY: use isatool fixclasimp
wenzelm@4108
  1299
to patch your ML files accordingly;
paulson@3856
  1300
wenzelm@3857
  1301
* HTML output now includes theory graph data for display with Java
wenzelm@3857
  1302
applet or isatool browser; data generated automatically via isatool
wenzelm@3901
  1303
usedir (see -i option, ISABELLE_USEDIR_OPTIONS);
wenzelm@3857
  1304
paulson@3856
  1305
* defs may now be conditional; improved rewrite_goals_tac to handle
paulson@3856
  1306
conditional equations;
paulson@3856
  1307
wenzelm@4174
  1308
* defs now admits additional type arguments, using TYPE('a) syntax;
wenzelm@4174
  1309
wenzelm@3901
  1310
* theory aliases via merge (e.g. M=A+B+C) no longer supported, always
wenzelm@3901
  1311
creates a new theory node; implicit merge of thms' signatures is
wenzelm@4112
  1312
restricted to 'trivial' ones; COMPATIBILITY: one may have to use
wenzelm@3901
  1313
transfer:theory->thm->thm in (rare) cases;
wenzelm@3901
  1314
wenzelm@3968
  1315
* improved handling of draft signatures / theories; draft thms (and
wenzelm@3968
  1316
ctyps, cterms) are automatically promoted to real ones;
wenzelm@3968
  1317
wenzelm@3901
  1318
* slightly changed interfaces for oracles: admit many per theory, named
wenzelm@3901
  1319
(e.g. oracle foo = mlfun), additional name argument for invoke_oracle;
wenzelm@3901
  1320
wenzelm@3901
  1321
* print_goals: optional output of const types (set show_consts and
wenzelm@3901
  1322
show_types);
wenzelm@3851
  1323
wenzelm@4388
  1324
* improved output of warnings (###) and errors (***);
wenzelm@3697
  1325
paulson@4178
  1326
* subgoal_tac displays a warning if the new subgoal has type variables;
paulson@4178
  1327
paulson@3715
  1328
* removed old README and Makefiles;
wenzelm@3697
  1329
paulson@3856
  1330
* replaced print_goals_ref hook by print_current_goals_fn and result_error_fn;
wenzelm@3670
  1331
paulson@3715
  1332
* removed obsolete init_pps and init_database;
paulson@3715
  1333
paulson@3715
  1334
* deleted the obsolete tactical STATE, which was declared by
paulson@3715
  1335
    fun STATE tacfun st = tacfun st st;
paulson@3715
  1336
wenzelm@4388
  1337
* cd and use now support path variables, e.g. $ISABELLE_HOME, or ~
wenzelm@4388
  1338
(which abbreviates $HOME);
wenzelm@4269
  1339
wenzelm@4269
  1340
* changed Pure/Sequence interface (see Pure/seq.ML); COMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@4269
  1341
use isatool fixseq to adapt your ML programs (this works for fully
wenzelm@4269
  1342
qualified references to the Sequence structure only!);
wenzelm@4269
  1343
wenzelm@4381
  1344
* use_thy no longer requires writable current directory; it always
wenzelm@4381
  1345
reloads .ML *and* .thy file, if either one is out of date;
wenzelm@4269
  1346
paulson@3715
  1347
paulson@3715
  1348
*** Classical Reasoner ***
paulson@3715
  1349
wenzelm@3744
  1350
* Clarify_tac, clarify_tac, clarify_step_tac, Clarify_step_tac: new
wenzelm@3744
  1351
tactics that use classical reasoning to simplify a subgoal without
wenzelm@3744
  1352
splitting it into several subgoals;
paulson@3715
  1353
paulson@3719
  1354
* Safe_tac: like safe_tac but uses the default claset;
paulson@3719
  1355
paulson@3715
  1356
paulson@3715
  1357
*** Simplifier ***
paulson@3715
  1358
paulson@3715
  1359
* added simplification meta rules:
paulson@3715
  1360
    (asm_)(full_)simplify: simpset -> thm -> thm;
paulson@3715
  1361
paulson@3715
  1362
* simplifier.ML no longer part of Pure -- has to be loaded by object
paulson@3715
  1363
logics (again);
paulson@3715
  1364
paulson@3715
  1365
* added prems argument to simplification procedures;
paulson@3715
  1366
paulson@4325
  1367
* HOL, FOL, ZF: added infix function `addsplits':
paulson@4325
  1368
  instead of `<simpset> setloop (split_tac <thms>)'
paulson@4325
  1369
  you can simply write `<simpset> addsplits <thms>'
paulson@4325
  1370
paulson@3715
  1371
paulson@3715
  1372
*** Syntax ***
paulson@3715
  1373
wenzelm@4174
  1374
* TYPE('a) syntax for type reflection terms;
wenzelm@4174
  1375
wenzelm@3985
  1376
* no longer handles consts with name "" -- declare as 'syntax' instead;
paulson@3856
  1377
paulson@3856
  1378
* pretty printer: changed order of mixfix annotation preference (again!);
wenzelm@3846
  1379
paulson@3715
  1380
* Pure: fixed idt/idts vs. pttrn/pttrns syntactic categories;
paulson@3715
  1381
paulson@3715
  1382
paulson@3715
  1383
*** HOL ***
paulson@3715
  1384
wenzelm@5726
  1385
* HOL: there is a new splitter `split_asm_tac' that can be used e.g.
oheimb@4189
  1386
  with `addloop' of the simplifier to faciliate case splitting in premises.
oheimb@4189
  1387
nipkow@4035
  1388
* HOL/TLA: Stephan Merz's formalization of Lamport's Temporal Logic of Actions;
wenzelm@3985
  1389
wenzelm@3985
  1390
* HOL/Auth: new protocol proofs including some for the Internet
nipkow@4035
  1391
  protocol TLS;
wenzelm@3985
  1392
wenzelm@4125
  1393
* HOL/Map: new theory of `maps' a la VDM;
nipkow@3982
  1394
wenzelm@4335
  1395
* HOL/simplifier: simplification procedures nat_cancel_sums for
wenzelm@4335
  1396
cancelling out common nat summands from =, <, <= (in)equalities, or
wenzelm@4335
  1397
differences; simplification procedures nat_cancel_factor for
wenzelm@4335
  1398
cancelling common factor from =, <, <= (in)equalities over natural
wenzelm@4373
  1399
sums; nat_cancel contains both kinds of procedures, it is installed by
wenzelm@4373
  1400
default in Arith.thy -- this COULD MAKE EXISTING PROOFS FAIL;
wenzelm@4335
  1401
nipkow@3580
  1402
* HOL/simplifier: terms of the form
paulson@4325
  1403
  `? x. P1(x) & ... & Pn(x) & x=t & Q1(x) & ... Qn(x)'  (or t=x)
nipkow@3580
  1404
  are rewritten to
nipkow@4035
  1405
  `P1(t) & ... & Pn(t) & Q1(t) & ... Qn(t)',
nipkow@4035
  1406
  and those of the form

* HOL/datatype
nipkow@4035
  1412
  Each datatype `t' now comes with a theorem `split_t_case' of the form
nipkow@3580
  1413
nipkow@4035
  1414
  P(t_case f1 ... fn x) =
nipkow@4035
  1415

  1417
       (!y1 ... ymn. x = Cn y1 ... ymn --> P(f1 y1 ... ymn))
nipkow@4035
  1418
     )
nipkow@4035
  1419
oheimb@4930
  1420
  and a theorem `split_t_case_asm' of the form
oheimb@4189
  1421
oheimb@4189
  1422
  P(t_case f1 ... fn x) =
oheimb@4189
  1423
    ~( (? y1 ... ym1. x = C1 y1 ... ym1 & ~P(f1 y1 ... ym1)) |

oheimb@4189
  1425
       (? y1 ... ymn. x = Cn y1 ... ymn & ~P(f1 y1 ... ymn))
oheimb@4189
  1426
     )
oheimb@4930
  1427
  which can be added to a simpset via `addsplits'. The existing theorems
oheimb@4930
  1428
  expand_list_case and expand_option_case have been renamed to
oheimb@4930
  1429
  split_list_case and split_option_case.
oheimb@4189
  1430
nipkow@4361
  1431
* HOL/Arithmetic:
nipkow@4361
  1432
  - `pred n' is automatically converted to `n-1'.
nipkow@4361
  1433
    Users are strongly encouraged not to use `pred' any longer,
nipkow@4361
  1434
    because it will disappear altogether at some point.
nipkow@4361
  1435
  - Users are strongly encouraged to write "0 < n" rather than
nipkow@4361
  1436
    "n ~= 0". Theorems and proof tools have been modified towards this
nipkow@4361
  1437
    `standard'.
nipkow@4357
  1438
nipkow@4502
  1439
* HOL/Lists:
nipkow@4502
  1440
  the function "set_of_list" has been renamed "set" (and its theorems too);
nipkow@4502
  1441
  the function "nth" now takes its arguments in the reverse order and
nipkow@4502
  1442
  has acquired the infix notation "!" as in "xs!n".
paulson@3570
  1443
paulson@4154
  1444
* HOL/Set: UNIV is now a constant and is no longer translated to Compl{};
paulson@4154
  1445
paulson@4154
  1446
* HOL/Set: The operator (UN x.B x) now abbreviates (UN x:UNIV. B x) and its
paulson@4154
  1447
  specialist theorems (like UN1_I) are gone.  Similarly for (INT x.B x);
paulson@4154
  1448
wenzelm@4575
  1449
* HOL/record: extensible records with schematic structural subtyping
wenzelm@4575
  1450
(single inheritance); EXPERIMENTAL version demonstrating the encoding,
wenzelm@4575
  1451
still lacks various theorems and concrete record syntax;

paulson@3715
  1454
*** HOLCF ***
wenzelm@3535
  1455
wenzelm@4125
  1456
* removed "axioms" and "generated by" sections;
wenzelm@4125
  1457
oheimb@4123
  1458
* replaced "ops" section by extended "consts" section, which is capable of
wenzelm@4125
  1459
  handling the continuous function space "->" directly;
wenzelm@4125
  1460
wenzelm@4125
  1461
* domain package:
wenzelm@4125
  1462
  . proves theorems immediately and stores them in the theory,
wenzelm@4125
  1463
  . creates hierachical name space,
wenzelm@4125
  1464
  . now uses normal mixfix annotations (instead of cinfix...),
wenzelm@4125
  1465
  . minor changes to some names and values (for consistency),
wenzelm@4125
  1466
  . e.g. cases -> casedist, dists_eq -> dist_eqs, [take_lemma] -> take_lemmas,
wenzelm@4125
  1467
  . separator between mutual domain defs: changed "," to "and",
wenzelm@4125
  1468
  . improved handling of sort constraints;  now they have to
wenzelm@4125
  1469
    appear on the left-hand side of the equations only;
oheimb@4123
  1470
oheimb@4123
  1471
* fixed LAM <x,y,zs>.b syntax;
wenzelm@3567
  1472
wenzelm@3744
  1473
* added extended adm_tac to simplifier in HOLCF -- can now discharge
wenzelm@3744
  1474
adm (%x. P (t x)), where P is chainfinite and t continuous;

paulson@3719
  1477
*** FOL and ZF ***
paulson@3719
  1478
wenzelm@5726
  1479
* FOL: there is a new splitter `split_asm_tac' that can be used e.g.
oheimb@4189
  1480
  with `addloop' of the simplifier to faciliate case splitting in premises.
oheimb@4189
  1481
wenzelm@3744
  1482
* qed_spec_mp, qed_goal_spec_mp, qed_goalw_spec_mp are available, as
wenzelm@3744
  1483
in HOL, they strip ALL and --> from proved theorems;

wenzelm@3006
  1488
------------------------------
wenzelm@2654
  1489
paulson@3002
  1490
*** General Changes ***
paulson@3002
  1491
paulson@3002
  1492
* new utilities to build / run / maintain Isabelle etc. (in parts
paulson@3002
  1493
still somewhat experimental); old Makefiles etc. still functional;
wenzelm@2971
  1494
wenzelm@3205
  1495
* new 'Isabelle System Manual';
wenzelm@3205
  1496
wenzelm@2825
  1497
* INSTALL text, together with ./configure and ./build scripts;
wenzelm@2773
  1498
wenzelm@3006
  1499
* reimplemented type inference for greater efficiency, better error
wenzelm@3006
  1500
messages and clean internal interface;
paulson@3002
  1501
paulson@3002
  1502
* prlim command for dealing with lots of subgoals (an easier way of
paulson@3002
  1503
setting goals_limit);
paulson@3002
  1504
wenzelm@3006
  1505
wenzelm@3006
  1506
*** Syntax ***
paulson@3002
  1507
wenzelm@3116
  1508
* supports alternative (named) syntax tables (parser and pretty
wenzelm@3116
  1509
printer); internal interface is provided by add_modesyntax(_i);
wenzelm@3116
  1510
paulson@3002
  1511
* Pure, FOL, ZF, HOL, HOLCF now support symbolic input and output; to
paulson@3002
  1512
be used in conjunction with the Isabelle symbol font; uses the
paulson@3002
  1513
"symbols" syntax table;
paulson@3002
  1514
wenzelm@2705
  1515
* added token_translation interface (may translate name tokens in
wenzelm@2756
  1516
arbitrary ways, dependent on their type (free, bound, tfree, ...) and
wenzelm@3116
  1517
the current print_mode); IMPORTANT: user print translation functions
wenzelm@3116
  1518
are responsible for marking newly introduced bounds
wenzelm@3116
  1519
(Syntax.mark_boundT);
wenzelm@2705
  1520
wenzelm@2730
  1521
* token translations for modes "xterm" and "xterm_color" that display
wenzelm@3006
  1522
names in bold, underline etc. or colors (which requires a color
wenzelm@3006
  1523
version of xterm);
wenzelm@2730
  1524
paulson@3002
  1525
* infixes may now be declared with names independent of their syntax;
paulson@3002
  1526
paulson@3002
  1527
* added typed_print_translation (like print_translation, but may
paulson@3002
  1528
access type of constant);
paulson@3002
  1529
wenzelm@3006

paulson@3002
  1531
*** Classical Reasoner ***
paulson@3002
  1532
paulson@3002
  1533
Blast_tac: a new tactic!  It is often more powerful than fast_tac, but has
paulson@3002
  1534
some limitations.  Blast_tac...
paulson@3002
  1535
  + ignores addss, addbefore, addafter; this restriction is intrinsic
paulson@3002
  1536
  + ignores elimination rules that don't have the correct format
wenzelm@5726
  1537
        (the conclusion MUST be a formula variable)
paulson@3002
  1538
  + ignores types, which can make HOL proofs fail
paulson@3002
  1539
  + rules must not require higher-order unification, e.g. apply_type in ZF
paulson@3002
  1540
    [message "Function Var's argument not a bound variable" relates to this]
paulson@3002
  1541
  + its proof strategy is more general but can actually be slower
paulson@3002
  1542
wenzelm@3107
  1543
* substitution with equality assumptions no longer permutes other
wenzelm@3107
  1544
assumptions;
paulson@3002
  1545
paulson@3002
  1546
* minor changes in semantics of addafter (now called addaltern); renamed
paulson@3002
  1547
setwrapper to setWrapper and compwrapper to compWrapper; added safe wrapper
wenzelm@3107
  1548
(and access functions for it);
paulson@3002
  1549
wenzelm@5726
  1550
* improved combination of classical reasoner and simplifier:
oheimb@3317
  1551
  + functions for handling clasimpsets
oheimb@3317
  1552
  + improvement of addss: now the simplifier is called _after_ the
oheimb@3317
  1553
    safe steps.
oheimb@3317
  1554
  + safe variant of addss called addSss: uses safe simplifications
wenzelm@5726
  1555
    _during_ the safe steps. It is more complete as it allows multiple
oheimb@3317
  1556
    instantiations of unknowns (e.g. with slow_tac).
wenzelm@3006
  1557
paulson@3002
  1558
*** Simplifier ***
paulson@3002
  1559
wenzelm@3006
  1560
* added interface for simplification procedures (functions that
wenzelm@3006
  1561
produce *proven* rewrite rules on the fly, depending on current
wenzelm@3006
  1562
redex);
wenzelm@3006
  1563
wenzelm@3006
  1564
* ordering on terms as parameter (used for ordered rewriting);
wenzelm@3006
  1565
wenzelm@3107
  1566
* new functions delcongs, deleqcongs, and Delcongs. richer rep_ss;
paulson@3002
  1567
paulson@3002
  1568
* the solver is now split into a safe and an unsafe part.
paulson@3002
  1569
This should be invisible for the normal user, except that the
paulson@3002
  1570
functions setsolver and addsolver have been renamed to setSolver and
wenzelm@3107
  1571
addSolver; added safe_asm_full_simp_tac;
paulson@3002
  1572
paulson@3002

paulson@3002
  1574
*** HOL ***
paulson@3002
  1575
nipkow@3042
  1576
* a generic induction tactic `induct_tac' which works for all datatypes and
wenzelm@3107
  1577
also for type `nat';
nipkow@3042
  1578
nipkow@3316
  1579
* a generic case distinction tactic `exhaust_tac' which works for all
nipkow@3316
  1580
datatypes and also for type `nat';
nipkow@3316
  1581
nipkow@3316
  1582
* each datatype comes with a function `size';
nipkow@3316
  1583
paulson@3002
  1584
* patterns in case expressions allow tuple patterns as arguments to
wenzelm@3107
  1585
constructors, for example `case x of [] => ... | (x,y,z)#ps => ...';
paulson@3002
  1586
paulson@3002
  1587
* primrec now also works with type nat;
paulson@3002
  1588
paulson@3338
  1589
* recdef: a new declaration form, allows general recursive functions to be
paulson@3338
  1590
defined in theory files.  See HOL/ex/Fib, HOL/ex/Primes, HOL/Subst/Unify.
paulson@3338
  1591
paulson@3002
  1592
* the constant for negation has been renamed from "not" to "Not" to
wenzelm@3107
  1593
harmonize with FOL, ZF, LK, etc.;
paulson@3002
  1594
wenzelm@3107
  1595
* HOL/ex/LFilter theory of a corecursive "filter" functional for
wenzelm@3107
  1596
infinite lists;
paulson@3002
  1597

* HOL/ex/Ring.thy declares cring_simp, which solves equational
paulson@3002
  1601
problems in commutative rings, using axiomatic type classes for + and *;
paulson@3002
  1602
paulson@3002
  1603
* more examples in HOL/MiniML and HOL/Auth;
paulson@3002
  1604
paulson@3002
  1605
* more default rewrite rules for quantifiers, union/intersection;
paulson@3002
  1606
nipkow@3321
  1607
* a new constant `arbitrary == @x.False';
nipkow@3321
  1608
wenzelm@3107
  1609
* HOLCF/IOA replaces old HOL/IOA;
wenzelm@3107
  1610
wenzelm@5726
  1611
* HOLCF changes: derived all rules and arities
wenzelm@5726
  1612
  + axiomatic type classes instead of classes
slotosch@2653
  1613
  + typedef instead of faking type definitions
paulson@2747
  1614
  + eliminated the internal constants less_fun, less_cfun, UU_fun, UU_cfun etc.
wenzelm@2730
  1615
  + new axclasses cpo, chfin, flat with flat < chfin < pcpo < cpo < po
slotosch@2653
  1616
  + eliminated the types void, one, tr
slotosch@2653
  1617
  + use unit lift and bool lift (with translations) instead of one and tr
slotosch@2653
  1618
  + eliminated blift from Lift3.thy (use Def instead of blift)
wenzelm@3107
  1619
  all eliminated rules are derived as theorems --> no visible changes ;

*** ZF ***
wenzelm@2553
  1623
paulson@2865
  1624
* ZF now has Fast_tac, Simp_tac and Auto_tac.  Union_iff is a now a default
paulson@2865
  1625
rewrite rule; this may affect some proofs.  eq_cs is gone but can be put back

  1704
Axiom of Choice;
paulson@2557
  1705
paulson@2557
  1706
* The previous version of HOL renamed to Old_HOL;
paulson@2557
  1707
wenzelm@5726
  1708
* The new version of HOL (previously called CHOL) uses a curried syntax
paulson@2557
  1709
for functions.  Application looks like f a b instead of f(a,b);
paulson@2557
  1710
paulson@2557
  1711
* Mutually recursive inductive definitions finally work in HOL;
paulson@2557
  1712
paulson@2557
  1713
* In ZF, pattern-matching on tuples is now available in all abstractions and
paulson@2557
  1714
translates to the operator "split";

paulson@2557
  1719
-------------------
paulson@2557
  1720
wenzelm@5726
  1721
* new infix operator, addss, allowing the classical reasoner to
paulson@2557
  1722
perform simplification at each step of its search.  Example:
wenzelm@5726
  1723
        fast_tac (cs addss ss)
paulson@2557
  1724
wenzelm@5726
  1725
* a new logic, CHOL, the same as HOL, but with a curried syntax
wenzelm@5726
  1726
for functions.  Application looks like f a b instead of f(a,b).  Also pairs
paulson@2557
  1727
look like (a,b) instead of <a,b>;
paulson@2557
  1728
paulson@2557
  1729
* PLEASE NOTE: CHOL will eventually replace HOL!
paulson@2557
  1730
paulson@2557
  1731
* In CHOL, pattern-matching on tuples is now available in all abstractions.
paulson@2557
  1732
It translates to the operator "split".  A new theory of integers is available;
paulson@2557
  1733
paulson@2557
  1734
* In ZF, integer numerals now denote two's-complement binary integers.
paulson@2557
  1735
Arithmetic operations can be performed by rewriting.  See ZF/ex/Bin.ML;
paulson@2557
  1736
wenzelm@5726
  1737
* Many new examples: I/O automata, Church-Rosser theorem, equivalents
paulson@2557
  1738
of the Axiom of Choice;

-------------------
paulson@2557
  1744
wenzelm@5726
  1745
* Significantly faster resolution;
paulson@2557
  1746
paulson@2557
  1747
* the different sections in a .thy file can now be mixed and repeated
paulson@2557
  1748
freely;
paulson@2557
  1749
paulson@2557
  1750
* Database of theorems for FOL, HOL and ZF.  New
paulson@2557
  1751
commands including qed, qed_goal and bind_thm store theorems in the database.
paulson@2557
  1752
paulson@2557
  1753
* Simple database queries: return a named theorem (get_thm) or all theorems of
paulson@2557
  1754
a given theory (thms_of), or find out what theory a theorem was proved in
paulson@2557
  1755
(theory_of_thm);
paulson@2557
  1756
paulson@2557
  1757
* Bugs fixed in the inductive definition and datatype packages;
paulson@2557
  1758
paulson@2557
  1759
* The classical reasoner provides deepen_tac and depth_tac, making FOL_dup_cs
paulson@2557
  1760
and HOL_dup_cs obsolete;
paulson@2557
  1761
paulson@2557
  1762
* Syntactic ambiguities caused by the new treatment of syntax in Isabelle94-1
paulson@2557
  1763
have been removed;
paulson@2557
  1764
paulson@2557
  1765
* Simpler definition of function space in ZF;
paulson@2557
  1766
paulson@2557
  1767
* new results about cardinal and ordinal arithmetic in ZF;
paulson@2557
  1768
paulson@2557
  1769
* 'subtype' facility in HOL for introducing new types as subsets of existing
paulson@2557
  1770
types;
