*** General ***
wenzelm@13280

berghofe@13618
     9
* Provers/simplifier:
berghofe@13618
    10
nipkow@13781
    11
  - Completely reimplemented method simp (ML: Asm_full_simp_tac):
berghofe@13618
    12
    Assumptions are now subject to complete mutual simplification,
berghofe@13618
    13
    not just from left to right. The simplifier now preserves
berghofe@13618
    14
    the order of assumptions.
berghofe@13618
    15
berghofe@13618
    16
    Potential INCOMPATIBILITY:
berghofe@13618
    17
nipkow@13781
    18
    -- simp sometimes diverges where the old version did
nipkow@13781
    19
       not, e.g. invoking simp on the goal
berghofe@13618
    20
berghofe@13618
    21
        [| P (f x); y = x; f x = f y |] ==> Q
berghofe@13618
    22
nipkow@13781
    23
       now gives rise to the infinite reduction sequence
nipkow@13781
    24
nipkow@13781
    25
        P(f x) --(f x = f y)--> P(f y) --(y = x)--> P(f x) --(f x = f y)--> ...
nipkow@13781
    26
nipkow@13781
    27
       Using "simp (asm_lr)" (ML: Asm_lr_simp_tac) instead often solves this
nipkow@13781
    28
       kind of problem.
nipkow@13781
    29
nipkow@13781
    30
    -- Tactics combining classical reasoner and simplification (such as auto)
nipkow@13781
    31
       are also affected by this change, because many of them rely on
nipkow@13781
    32
       simp. They may sometimes diverge as well or yield a different numbers
nipkow@13781
    33
       of subgoals. Try to use e.g. force, fastsimp, or safe instead of auto
nipkow@13781
    34
       in case of problems. Sometimes subsequent calls to the classical
nipkow@13781
    35
       reasoner will fail because a preceeding call to the simplifier too
nipkow@13781
    36
       eagerly simplified the goal, e.g. deleted redundant premises.
berghofe@13618
    37
berghofe@13618
    38
  - The simplifier trace now shows the names of the applied rewrite rules
berghofe@13618
    39
nipkow@13829
    40
  - You can limit the number of recursive invocations of the simplifier
nipkow@13829
    41
    during conditional rewriting (where the simplifie tries to solve the
nipkow@13829
    42
    conditions before applying the rewrite rule):
nipkow@13829
    43
    ML "simp_depth_limit := n"
nipkow@13829
    44
    where n is an integer. Thus you can force termination where previously
nipkow@13829
    45
    the simplifier would diverge.
nipkow@13829
    46
nipkow@13829
    47
nipkow@13815
    48
* Pure: New flag for triggering if the overall goal of a proof state should
nipkow@13815
    49
be printed:
nipkow@13815
    50
   PG menu: Isabelle/Isar -> Settigs -> Show Main Goal
nipkow@13815
    51
(ML: Proof.show_main_goal).
nipkow@13815
    52
nipkow@13815
    53
* Pure: You can find all matching introduction rules for subgoal 1, i.e. all
nipkow@13815
    54
rules whose conclusion matches subgoal 1:
nipkow@13815
    55
      PG menu: Isabelle/Isar -> Show me -> matching rules
nipkow@13815
    56
The rules are ordered by how closely they match the subgoal.
nipkow@13815
    57
In particular, rules that solve a subgoal outright are displayed first
nipkow@13815
    58
(or rather last, the way they are printed).
nipkow@13815
    59
(ML: ProofGeneral.print_intros())
nipkow@13815
    60
nipkow@13815
    61
* Pure: New flag trace_unify_fail causes unification to print
nipkow@13781
    62
diagnostic information (PG: in trace buffer) when it fails. This is
nipkow@13781
    63
useful for figuring out why single step proofs like rule, erule or
nipkow@13781
    64
assumption failed.
nipkow@13781
    65
nipkow@13815
    66
* Pure: Locale specifications now produce predicate definitions
wenzelm@13410
    67
according to the body of text (covering assumptions modulo local
wenzelm@13410
    68
definitions); predicate "loc_axioms" covers newly introduced text,
wenzelm@13410
    69
while "loc" is cumulative wrt. all included locale expressions; the
wenzelm@13410
    70
latter view is presented only on export into the global theory
wenzelm@13410
    71
context; potential INCOMPATIBILITY, use "(open)" option to fall back
wenzelm@13410
    72
on the old view without predicates;
wenzelm@13410
    73
wenzelm@13459
    74
* Pure: predefined locales "var" and "struct" are useful for sharing
wenzelm@13459
    75
parameters (as in CASL, for example); just specify something like
wenzelm@13459
    76
``var x + var y + struct M'' as import;
wenzelm@13459
    77
wenzelm@13463
    78
* Pure: improved thms_containing: proper indexing of facts instead of
wenzelm@13463
    79
raw theorems; check validity of results wrt. current name space;
wenzelm@13463
    80
include local facts of proof configuration (also covers active
wenzelm@13541
    81
locales), cover fixed variables in index; may use "_" in term
wenzelm@13541
    82
specification; an optional limit for the number of printed facts may
wenzelm@13541
    83
be given (the default is 40);
wenzelm@13541
    84
wenzelm@13541
    85
* Pure: disallow duplicate fact bindings within new-style theory files
wenzelm@13541
    86
(batch-mode only);
wenzelm@13540
    87
wenzelm@13463
    88
* Provers: improved induct method: assumptions introduced by case
wenzelm@13463
    89
"foo" are split into "foo.hyps" (from the rule) and "foo.prems" (from
wenzelm@13463
    90
the goal statement); "foo" still refers to all facts collectively;
wenzelm@13463
    91
paulson@13550
    92
* Provers: the function blast.overloaded has been removed: all constants
paulson@13550
    93
are regarded as potentially overloaded, which improves robustness in exchange
paulson@13550
    94
for slight decrease in efficiency;
paulson@13550
    95
nipkow@13781
    96
* Provers/linorder: New generic prover for transitivity reasoning over
nipkow@13781
    97
linear orders.  Note: this prover is not efficient!
nipkow@13781
    98
wenzelm@13522
    99
* Isar: preview of problems to finish 'show' now produce an error
wenzelm@13522
   100
rather than just a warning (in interactive mode);
wenzelm@13522
   101
wenzelm@13280
   102
nipkow@13158
   103
*** HOL ***
nipkow@13158
   104
ballarin@13745
   105
* GroupTheory: new, experimental summation operator for abelian groups.
ballarin@13745
   106
ballarin@13735
   107
* New tactic "trans_tac" and method "trans" instantiate
ballarin@13735
   108
Provers/linorder.ML for axclasses "order" and "linorder" (predicates
ballarin@13735
   109
"<=", "<" and "="). 
ballarin@13735
   110
paulson@13587
   111
* function INCOMPATIBILITIES: Pi-sets have been redefined and moved from main 
paulson@13587
   112
HOL to Library/FuncSet; constant "Fun.op o" is now called "Fun.comp";
paulson@13587
   113
wenzelm@13443
   114
* 'typedef' command has new option "open" to suppress the set
wenzelm@13443
   115
definition;
wenzelm@13443
   116
wenzelm@13522
   117
* functions Min and Max on finite sets have been introduced (theory
wenzelm@13522
   118
Finite_Set);
nipkow@13492
   119
wenzelm@13443
   120
* attribute [symmetric] now works for relations as well; it turns
wenzelm@13443
   121
(x,y) : R^-1 into (y,x) : R, and vice versa;
wenzelm@13443
   122
nipkow@13500
   123
* arith(_tac) now produces a counter example if it cannot prove a theorem.
nipkow@13500
   124
  In ProofGeneral the counter example appears in the trace buffer.
nipkow@13500
   125
wenzelm@13443
   126
* arith(_tac) does now know about div k and mod k where k is a numeral
wenzelm@13443
   127
of type nat or int. It can solve simple goals like
wenzelm@13443
   128
nipkow@13344
   129
  "0 < n ==> n div 2 < (n::nat)"
wenzelm@13443
   130
wenzelm@13443
   131
but fails if divisibility plays a role like in
wenzelm@13443
   132
wenzelm@13443
   133
  "n div 2 + (n+1) div 2 = (n::nat)"
wenzelm@13443
   134
wenzelm@13443
   135
* simp's arithmetic capabilities have been enhanced a bit: it now
wenzelm@13443
   136
takes ~= in premises into account (by performing a case split);
nipkow@13158
   137
wenzelm@13549
   138
* simp reduces "m*(n div m) + n mod m" to n, even if the two summands
wenzelm@13549
   139
are distributed over a sum of terms;
wenzelm@13549
   140
nipkow@13613
   141
* induct over a !!-quantified statement (say !!x1..xn):
nipkow@13613
   142
  each "case" automatically performs "fix x1 .. xn" with exactly those names.
nipkow@13613
   143
paulson@13587
   144
* GroupTheory: converted to Isar theories, using locales with implicit structures;
paulson@13587
   145
wenzelm@13549
   146
* Real/HahnBanach: updated and adapted to locales;
wenzelm@13549
   147
wenzelm@13549
   148
wenzelm@13549
   149
*** ZF ***
wenzelm@13549
   150
wenzelm@13549
   151
* ZF/Constructible: consistency proof for AC (Gödel's constructible
wenzelm@13549
   152
universe, etc.);
wenzelm@13549
   153
wenzelm@13549
   154
* Main ZF: many theories converted to new-style format;
nipkow@13518
   155
wenzelm@13280
   156
wenzelm@13478
   157
*** ML ***
wenzelm@13478
   158
wenzelm@13478
   159
* Pure: Tactic.prove provides sane interface for internal proofs;
wenzelm@13478
   160
omits the infamous "standard" operation, so this is more appropriate
wenzelm@13478
   161
than prove_goalw_cterm in many situations (e.g. in simprocs);
wenzelm@13478
   162
wenzelm@13478
   163
* Pure: improved error reporting of simprocs;
wenzelm@13478
   164
wenzelm@13478
   165
* Provers: Simplifier.simproc(_i) provides sane interface for setting
wenzelm@13478
   166
up simprocs;
wenzelm@13478
   167
wenzelm@13478
   168
wenzelm@13280
   169
wenzelm@12984
   170
New in Isabelle2002 (March 2002)
wenzelm@12984
   171
--------------------------------
wenzelm@11474
   172
wenzelm@11572
   173
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@11572
   174
wenzelm@11842
   175
* greatly simplified document preparation setup, including more
wenzelm@11842
   176
graceful interpretation of isatool usedir -i/-d/-D options, and more
wenzelm@11842
   177
instructive isatool mkdir; users should basically be able to get
wenzelm@12899
   178
started with "isatool mkdir HOL Test && isatool make"; alternatively,
wenzelm@12899
   179
users may run a separate document processing stage manually like this:
wenzelm@12899
   180
"isatool usedir -D output HOL Test && isatool document Test/output";
wenzelm@11842
   181
wenzelm@11842
   182
* theory dependency graph may now be incorporated into documents;
wenzelm@11842
   183
isatool usedir -g true will produce session_graph.eps/.pdf for use
wenzelm@11842
   184
with \includegraphics of LaTeX;
wenzelm@11842
   185
wenzelm@11864
   186
* proper spacing of consecutive markup elements, especially text
wenzelm@11864
   187
blocks after section headings;
wenzelm@11864
   188
wenzelm@11572
   189
* support bold style (for single symbols only), input syntax is like
wenzelm@11572
   190
this: "\<^bold>\<alpha>" or "\<^bold>A";
wenzelm@11572
   191
wenzelm@11814
   192
* \<bullet> is now output as bold \cdot by default, which looks much
wenzelm@11572
   193
better in printed text;
wenzelm@11572
   194
wenzelm@11712
   195
* added default LaTeX bindings for \<tturnstile> and \<TTurnstile>;
wenzelm@11712
   196
note that these symbols are currently unavailable in Proof General /
wenzelm@12769
   197
X-Symbol; new symbols \<zero>, \<one>, ..., \<nine>, and \<euro>;
wenzelm@12690
   198
wenzelm@12690
   199
* isatool latex no longer depends on changed TEXINPUTS, instead
wenzelm@12690
   200
isatool document copies the Isabelle style files to the target
wenzelm@12690
   201
location;
wenzelm@11712
   202
wenzelm@11572
   203
wenzelm@11633
   204
*** Isar ***
wenzelm@11633
   205
wenzelm@12312
   206
* Pure/Provers: improved proof by cases and induction;
wenzelm@12280
   207
  - 'case' command admits impromptu naming of parameters (such as
wenzelm@12280
   208
    "case (Suc n)");
wenzelm@12280
   209
  - 'induct' method divinates rule instantiation from the inductive
wenzelm@12280
   210
    claim; no longer requires excessive ?P bindings for proper
wenzelm@12280
   211
    instantiation of cases;
wenzelm@12280
   212
  - 'induct' method properly enumerates all possibilities of set/type
wenzelm@12280
   213
    rules; as a consequence facts may be also passed through *type*
wenzelm@12280
   214
    rules without further ado;
wenzelm@12280
   215
  - 'induct' method now derives symbolic cases from the *rulified*
wenzelm@12280
   216
    rule (before it used to rulify cases stemming from the internal
wenzelm@12280
   217
    atomized version); this means that the context of a non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
   218
    statement becomes is included in the hypothesis, avoiding the
wenzelm@12280
   219
    slightly cumbersome show "PROP ?case" form;
wenzelm@12280
   220
  - 'induct' may now use elim-style induction rules without chaining
wenzelm@12280
   221
    facts, using ``missing'' premises from the goal state; this allows
wenzelm@12280
   222
    rules stemming from inductive sets to be applied in unstructured
wenzelm@12280
   223
    scripts, while still benefitting from proper handling of non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
   224
    statements; NB: major inductive premises need to be put first, all
wenzelm@12280
   225
    the rest of the goal is passed through the induction;
wenzelm@12280
   226
  - 'induct' proper support for mutual induction involving non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
   227
    rule statements (uses the new concept of simultaneous goals, see
wenzelm@12280
   228
    below);
wenzelm@12853
   229
  - append all possible rule selections, but only use the first
wenzelm@12853
   230
    success (no backtracking);
wenzelm@11995
   231
  - removed obsolete "(simplified)" and "(stripped)" options of methods;
wenzelm@12754
   232
  - undeclared rule case names default to numbers 1, 2, 3, ...;
wenzelm@12754
   233
  - added 'print_induct_rules' (covered by help item in recent Proof
wenzelm@12754
   234
    General versions);
wenzelm@11995
   235
  - moved induct/cases attributes to Pure, methods to Provers;
wenzelm@11995
   236
  - generic method setup instantiated for FOL and HOL;
wenzelm@11986
   237
wenzelm@12163
   238
* Pure: support multiple simultaneous goal statements, for example
wenzelm@12163
   239
"have a: A and b: B" (same for 'theorem' etc.); being a pure
wenzelm@12163
   240
meta-level mechanism, this acts as if several individual goals had
wenzelm@12163
   241
been stated separately; in particular common proof methods need to be
wenzelm@12163
   242
repeated in order to cover all claims; note that a single elimination
wenzelm@12163
   243
step is *not* sufficient to establish the two conjunctions, so this
wenzelm@12163
   244
fails:
wenzelm@12163
   245
wenzelm@12163
   246
  assume "A & B" then have A and B ..   (*".." fails*)
wenzelm@12163
   247
wenzelm@12163
   248
better use "obtain" in situations as above; alternative refer to
wenzelm@12163
   249
multi-step methods like 'auto', 'simp_all', 'blast+' etc.;
wenzelm@12163
   250
wenzelm@12078
   251
* Pure: proper integration with ``locales''; unlike the original
wenzelm@12210
   252
version by Florian Kammüller, Isar locales package high-level proof
wenzelm@12078
   253
contexts rather than raw logical ones (e.g. we admit to include
wenzelm@12280
   254
attributes everywhere); operations on locales include merge and
wenzelm@12964
   255
rename; support for implicit arguments (``structures''); simultaneous
wenzelm@12964
   256
type-inference over imports and text; see also HOL/ex/Locales.thy for
wenzelm@12964
   257
some examples;
wenzelm@12078
   258
wenzelm@12707
   259
* Pure: the following commands have been ``localized'', supporting a
wenzelm@12707
   260
target locale specification "(in name)": 'lemma', 'theorem',
wenzelm@12707
   261
'corollary', 'lemmas', 'theorems', 'declare'; the results will be
wenzelm@12707
   262
stored both within the locale and at the theory level (exported and
wenzelm@12707
   263
qualified by the locale name);
wenzelm@12707
   264
wenzelm@12964
   265
* Pure: theory goals may now be specified in ``long'' form, with
wenzelm@12964
   266
ad-hoc contexts consisting of arbitrary locale elements. for example
wenzelm@12964
   267
``lemma foo: fixes x assumes "A x" shows "B x"'' (local syntax and
wenzelm@12964
   268
definitions may be given, too); the result is a meta-level rule with
wenzelm@12964
   269
the context elements being discharged in the obvious way;
wenzelm@12964
   270
wenzelm@12964
   271
* Pure: new proof command 'using' allows to augment currently used
wenzelm@12964
   272
facts after a goal statement ('using' is syntactically analogous to
wenzelm@12964
   273
'apply', but acts on the goal's facts only); this allows chained facts
wenzelm@12964
   274
to be separated into parts given before and after a claim, as in
wenzelm@12964
   275
``from a and b have C using d and e <proof>'';
wenzelm@12078
   276
wenzelm@11722
   277
* Pure: renamed "antecedent" case to "rule_context";
wenzelm@11722
   278
wenzelm@12964
   279
* Pure: new 'judgment' command records explicit information about the
wenzelm@12964
   280
object-logic embedding (used by several tools internally); no longer
wenzelm@12964
   281
use hard-wired "Trueprop";
wenzelm@12964
   282
wenzelm@11738
   283
* Pure: added 'corollary' command;
wenzelm@11738
   284
wenzelm@11722
   285
* Pure: fixed 'token_translation' command;
wenzelm@11722
   286
wenzelm@11899
   287
* Pure: removed obsolete 'exported' attribute;
wenzelm@11899
   288
wenzelm@11933
   289
* Pure: dummy pattern "_" in is/let is now automatically lifted over
wenzelm@11933
   290
bound variables: "ALL x. P x --> Q x" (is "ALL x. _ --> ?C x")
wenzelm@11899
   291
supersedes more cumbersome ... (is "ALL x. _ x --> ?C x");
wenzelm@11899
   292
wenzelm@11952
   293
* Pure: method 'atomize' presents local goal premises as object-level
wenzelm@11952
   294
statements (atomic meta-level propositions); setup controlled via
wenzelm@11952
   295
rewrite rules declarations of 'atomize' attribute; example
wenzelm@11952
   296
application: 'induct' method with proper rule statements in improper
wenzelm@11952
   297
proof *scripts*;
wenzelm@11952
   298
wenzelm@12106
   299
* Pure: emulation of instantiation tactics (rule_tac, cut_tac, etc.)
wenzelm@12106
   300
now consider the syntactic context of assumptions, giving a better
wenzelm@12106
   301
chance to get type-inference of the arguments right (this is
wenzelm@12106
   302
especially important for locales);
wenzelm@12106
   303
wenzelm@12312
   304
* Pure: "sorry" no longer requires quick_and_dirty in interactive
wenzelm@12312
   305
mode;
wenzelm@12312
   306
wenzelm@12405
   307
* Pure/obtain: the formal conclusion "thesis", being marked as
wenzelm@12405
   308
``internal'', may no longer be reference directly in the text;
wenzelm@12405
   309
potential INCOMPATIBILITY, may need to use "?thesis" in rare
wenzelm@12405
   310
situations;
wenzelm@12405
   311
wenzelm@12405
   312
* Pure: generic 'sym' attribute which declares a rule both as pure
wenzelm@12405
   313
'elim?' and for the 'symmetric' operation;
wenzelm@12405
   314
wenzelm@12877
   315
* Pure: marginal comments ``--'' may now occur just anywhere in the
wenzelm@12877
   316
text; the fixed correlation with particular command syntax has been
wenzelm@12877
   317
discontinued;
wenzelm@12877
   318
berghofe@13023
   319
* Pure: new method 'rules' is particularly well-suited for proof
berghofe@13023
   320
search in intuitionistic logic; a bit slower than 'blast' or 'fast',
berghofe@13023
   321
but often produces more compact proof terms with less detours;
berghofe@13023
   322
wenzelm@12364
   323
* Pure/Provers/classical: simplified integration with pure rule
wenzelm@12364
   324
attributes and methods; the classical "intro?/elim?/dest?"
wenzelm@12364
   325
declarations coincide with the pure ones; the "rule" method no longer
wenzelm@12364
   326
includes classically swapped intros; "intro" and "elim" methods no
wenzelm@12364
   327
longer pick rules from the context; also got rid of ML declarations
wenzelm@12364
   328
AddXIs/AddXEs/AddXDs; all of this has some potential for
wenzelm@12364
   329
INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12364
   330
wenzelm@12405
   331
* Provers/classical: attribute 'swapped' produces classical inversions
wenzelm@12405
   332
of introduction rules;
wenzelm@12405
   333
wenzelm@12364
   334
* Provers/simplifier: 'simplified' attribute may refer to explicit
wenzelm@12364
   335
rules instead of full simplifier context; 'iff' attribute handles
wenzelm@12364
   336
conditional rules;
wenzelm@11936
   337
wenzelm@11745
   338
* HOL: 'typedef' now allows alternative names for Rep/Abs morphisms;
wenzelm@11745
   339
wenzelm@11690
   340
* HOL: 'recdef' now fails on unfinished automated proofs, use
wenzelm@11633
   341
"(permissive)" option to recover old behavior;
wenzelm@11633
   342
wenzelm@11933
   343
* HOL: 'inductive' no longer features separate (collective) attributes
wenzelm@11933
   344
for 'intros' (was found too confusing);
wenzelm@11933
   345
wenzelm@12405
   346
* HOL: properly declared induction rules less_induct and
wenzelm@12405
   347
wf_induct_rule;
wenzelm@12405
   348
kleing@11788

   350
*** HOL ***
wenzelm@11474
   351
wenzelm@11702
   352
* HOL: moved over to sane numeral syntax; the new policy is as
wenzelm@11702
   353
follows:
wenzelm@11702
   354
wenzelm@11702
   355
  - 0 and 1 are polymorphic constants, which are defined on any
wenzelm@11702
   356
  numeric type (nat, int, real etc.);
wenzelm@11702
   357
wenzelm@11702
   358
  - 2, 3, 4, ... and -1, -2, -3, ... are polymorphic numerals, based
wenzelm@11702
   359
  binary representation internally;
wenzelm@11702
   360
wenzelm@11702
   361
  - type nat has special constructor Suc, and generally prefers Suc 0
wenzelm@11702
   362
  over 1::nat and Suc (Suc 0) over 2::nat;
wenzelm@11702
   363
wenzelm@12364
   364
This change may cause significant problems of INCOMPATIBILITY; here
wenzelm@12364
   365
are some hints on converting existing sources:
wenzelm@11702
   366
wenzelm@11702
   367
  - due to the new "num" token, "-0" and "-1" etc. are now atomic
wenzelm@11702
   368
  entities, so expressions involving "-" (unary or binary minus) need
wenzelm@11702
   369
  to be spaced properly;
wenzelm@11702
   370
wenzelm@11702
   371
  - existing occurrences of "1" may need to be constraint "1::nat" or
wenzelm@11702
   372
  even replaced by Suc 0; similar for old "2";
wenzelm@11702
   373
wenzelm@11702
   374
  - replace "#nnn" by "nnn", and "#-nnn" by "-nnn";
wenzelm@11702
   375
wenzelm@11702
   376
  - remove all special provisions on numerals in proofs;
wenzelm@11702
   377
wenzelm@13042
   378
* HOL: simp rules nat_number expand numerals on nat to Suc/0
wenzelm@12837
   379
representation (depends on bin_arith_simps in the default context);
wenzelm@12837
   380
wenzelm@12736
   381
* HOL: symbolic syntax for x^2 (numeral 2);
wenzelm@12736
   382
wenzelm@12335
   383
* HOL: the class of all HOL types is now called "type" rather than
wenzelm@12335
   384
"term"; INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt references to this type class
wenzelm@12335
   385
in axclass/classes, instance/arities, and (usually rare) occurrences
wenzelm@12335
   386
in typings (of consts etc.); internally the class is called
wenzelm@12335
   387
"HOL.type", ML programs should refer to HOLogic.typeS;
wenzelm@12335
   388
wenzelm@12280
   389
* HOL/record package improvements:
wenzelm@12280
   390
  - new derived operations "fields" to build a partial record section,
wenzelm@12280
   391
    "extend" to promote a fixed record to a record scheme, and
wenzelm@12280
   392
    "truncate" for the reverse; cf. theorems "xxx.defs", which are *not*
wenzelm@12280
   393
    declared as simp by default;
wenzelm@12587
   394
  - shared operations ("more", "fields", etc.) now need to be always
wenzelm@12587
   395
    qualified) --- potential INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12280
   396
  - removed "make_scheme" operations (use "make" with "extend") --
wenzelm@12280
   397
    INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@11937
   398
  - removed "more" class (simply use "term") -- INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12253
   399
  - provides cases/induct rules for use with corresponding Isar
wenzelm@12253
   400
    methods (for concrete records, record schemes, concrete more
wenzelm@12280
   401
    parts, and schematic more parts -- in that order);
wenzelm@11930
   402
  - internal definitions directly based on a light-weight abstract
wenzelm@11930
   403
    theory of product types over typedef rather than datatype;
wenzelm@11930
   404
berghofe@13023
   405
* HOL: generic code generator for generating executable ML code from
berghofe@13023
   406
specifications; specific support for HOL constructs such as inductive
berghofe@13023
   407
datatypes and sets, as well as recursive functions; can be invoked
berghofe@13023
   408
via 'generate_code' theory section;
berghofe@13023
   409
wenzelm@11933
   410
* HOL: canonical cases/induct rules for n-tuples (n = 3..7);
wenzelm@11933
   411
paulson@13824
   412
* HOL: consolidated and renamed several theories.  In particular:
paulson@13824
   413
	Ord.thy has been absorbed into HOL.thy
paulson@13824
   414
	String.thy has been absorbed into List.thy
paulson@13824
   415
 
wenzelm@11802
   416
* HOL: concrete setsum syntax "\<Sum>i:A. b" == "setsum (%i. b) A"
wenzelm@11802
   417
(beware of argument permutation!);
wenzelm@11802
   418
wenzelm@11657
   419
* HOL: linorder_less_split superseded by linorder_cases;
wenzelm@11657
   420
wenzelm@12917
   421
* HOL/List: "nodups" renamed to "distinct";
nipkow@12889
   422
wenzelm@11633
   423
* HOL: added "The" definite description operator; move Hilbert's "Eps"
paulson@13824
   424
to peripheral theory "Hilbert_Choice"; some INCOMPATIBILITIES:
paulson@13824
   425
  - Ex_def has changed, now need to use some_eq_ex
wenzelm@11437
   426
wenzelm@11572
   427
* HOL: made split_all_tac safe; EXISTING PROOFS MAY FAIL OR LOOP, so
wenzelm@11572
   428
in this (rare) case use:
wenzelm@11572
   429
wenzelm@11572
   430
  delSWrapper "split_all_tac"
wenzelm@11572
   431
  addSbefore ("unsafe_split_all_tac", unsafe_split_all_tac)
wenzelm@11572
   432
wenzelm@11572
   433
* HOL: added safe wrapper "split_conv_tac" to claset; EXISTING PROOFS
wenzelm@11474
   434
MAY FAIL;
nipkow@11361
   435
wenzelm@11572
   436
* HOL: introduced f^n = f o ... o f; warning: due to the limits of
wenzelm@11572
   437
Isabelle's type classes, ^ on functions and relations has too general
wenzelm@11572
   438
a domain, namely ('a * 'b) set and 'a => 'b; this means that it may be
wenzelm@11572
   439
necessary to attach explicit type constraints;
nipkow@11307
   440
wenzelm@12917
   441
* HOL/Relation: the prefix name of the infix "O" has been changed from
wenzelm@12917
   442
"comp" to "rel_comp"; INCOMPATIBILITY: a few theorems have been
wenzelm@12917
   443
renamed accordingly (eg "compI" -> "rel_compI").
nipkow@12489
   444
wenzelm@11487
   445
* HOL: syntax translations now work properly with numerals and records
wenzelm@11487
   446
expressions;
wenzelm@11474
   447
wenzelm@12457
   448
* HOL: bounded abstraction now uses syntax "%" / "\<lambda>" instead
wenzelm@12457
   449
of "lam" -- INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@11474
   450
wenzelm@11933
   451
* HOL: got rid of some global declarations (potential INCOMPATIBILITY
wenzelm@11933
   452
for ML tools): const "()" renamed "Product_Type.Unity", type "unit"
wenzelm@11933
   453
renamed "Product_Type.unit";
wenzelm@11611
   454
nipkow@12564
   455
* HOL: renamed rtrancl_into_rtrancl2 to converse_rtrancl_into_rtrancl
nipkow@12564
   456
wenzelm@12924
   457
* HOL: removed obsolete theorem "optionE" (use "option.exhaust", or
wenzelm@12924
   458
the "cases" method);
wenzelm@12924
   459
wenzelm@12597
   460
* HOL/GroupTheory: group theory examples including Sylow's theorem (by
wenzelm@12597
   461
Florian Kammüller);
wenzelm@12597
   462
wenzelm@12608
   463
* HOL/IMP: updated and converted to new-style theory format; several
wenzelm@12608
   464
parts turned into readable document, with proper Isar proof texts and
wenzelm@12608
   465
some explanations (by Gerwin Klein);
wenzelm@12597
   466
wenzelm@12734
   467
* HOL-Real: added Complex_Numbers (by Gertrud Bauer);
wenzelm@12734
   468
wenzelm@12690
   469
* HOL-Hyperreal is now a logic image;

*** HOLCF ***
wenzelm@12022

wenzelm@12622
   474
* Isar: consts/constdefs supports mixfix syntax for continuous
wenzelm@12622
   475
operations;
wenzelm@12622
   476
wenzelm@12622
   477
* Isar: domain package adapted to new-style theory format, e.g. see
wenzelm@12622
   478
HOLCF/ex/Dnat.thy;
wenzelm@12622
   479
wenzelm@12622
   480
* theory Lift: proper use of rep_datatype lift instead of ML hacks --
wenzelm@12280
   481
potential INCOMPATIBILITY; now use plain induct_tac instead of former
wenzelm@12280
   482
lift.induct_tac, always use UU instead of Undef;
wenzelm@12022
   483
wenzelm@12597
   484
* HOLCF/IMP: updated and converted to new-style theory;

*** ZF ***
wenzelm@11474
   488
wenzelm@12622
   489
* Isar: proper integration of logic-specific tools and packages,
wenzelm@12622
   490
including theory commands '(co)inductive', '(co)datatype',
wenzelm@12622
   491
'rep_datatype', 'inductive_cases', as well as methods 'ind_cases',
wenzelm@12622
   492
'induct_tac', 'case_tac', and 'typecheck' (with attribute 'TC');
wenzelm@12622
   493
wenzelm@12622
   494
* theory Main no longer includes AC; for the Axiom of Choice, base
wenzelm@12622
   495
your theory on Main_ZFC;
wenzelm@12622
   496
wenzelm@12622
   497
* the integer library now covers quotients and remainders, with many
wenzelm@12622
   498
laws relating division to addition, multiplication, etc.;
paulson@12563
   499
wenzelm@12280
   500
* ZF/UNITY: Chandy and Misra's UNITY is now available in ZF, giving a
wenzelm@12280
   501
typeless version of the formalism;
wenzelm@12280
   502
wenzelm@13025
   503
* ZF/AC, Coind, IMP, Resid: updated and converted to new-style theory
wenzelm@13025
   504
format;
wenzelm@12608
   505
wenzelm@12280
   506
* ZF/Induct: new directory for examples of inductive definitions,
wenzelm@12608
   507
including theory Multiset for multiset orderings; converted to
wenzelm@12608
   508
new-style theory format;
wenzelm@12177
   509
wenzelm@13025

wenzelm@12280
   516
variable proof controls level of detail: 0 = no proofs (only oracle
wenzelm@12280
   517

wenzelm@12280
   518
also ref manual for further ML interfaces;
wenzelm@12280
   519
wenzelm@12280

   521
goal_subclass/goal_arity;
wenzelm@12280
   522
wenzelm@12280
   523
* Pure/syntax: new token syntax "num" for plain numerals (without "#"
wenzelm@12280
   524
of "xnum"); potential INCOMPATIBILITY, since -0, -1 etc. are now
wenzelm@12280
   525
separate tokens, so expressions involving minus need to be spaced
wenzelm@12280
   526
properly;
wenzelm@12280
   527
wenzelm@12312
   528
* Pure/syntax: support non-oriented infixes, using keyword "infix"
wenzelm@12312
   529
rather than "infixl" or "infixr";
wenzelm@12312
   530
wenzelm@12312
   531
* Pure/syntax: concrete syntax for dummy type variables admits genuine
wenzelm@12312
   532
sort constraint specifications in type inference; e.g. "x::_::foo"
wenzelm@12312
   533
ensures that the type of "x" is of sort "foo" (but not necessarily a
wenzelm@12312
   534
type variable);
wenzelm@12280
   535
wenzelm@12280
   536
* Pure/syntax: print modes "type_brackets" and "no_type_brackets"
wenzelm@12280
   537
control output of nested => (types); the default behavior is
wenzelm@12280
   538
"type_brackets";
wenzelm@12280
   539
wenzelm@12280
   540
* Pure/syntax: builtin parse translation for "_constify" turns valued
wenzelm@11817
   541
tokens into AST constants;
wenzelm@11474
   542
wenzelm@12280
   543
* Pure/syntax: prefer later declarations of translations and print
wenzelm@12280
   544

* Pure/show_hyps reset by default (in accordance to existing Isar
wenzelm@12832
   548
practice);
wenzelm@12832
   549
wenzelm@12280
   550
* Provers/classical: renamed addaltern to addafter, addSaltern to
wenzelm@12280
   551
addSafter;
wenzelm@12280
   552
wenzelm@12280
   553
* Provers/clasimp: ``iff'' declarations now handle conditional rules
wenzelm@12280
   554
as well;
wenzelm@12253
   555
wenzelm@12538
   556
* system: tested support for MacOS X; should be able to get Isabelle +
wenzelm@12538
   557
Proof General to work in a plain Terminal after installing Poly/ML
wenzelm@12538
   558
(e.g. from the Isabelle distribution area) and GNU bash alone
wenzelm@12538
   559
(e.g. from http://www.apple.com); full X11, XEmacs and X-Symbol
wenzelm@12538
   560
support requires further installations, e.g. from
wenzelm@12538
   561
http://fink.sourceforge.net/);
wenzelm@12538
   562
wenzelm@12280
   563
* system: support Poly/ML 4.1.1 (able to manage larger heaps);
wenzelm@11551
   564
wenzelm@12753
   565
* system: reduced base memory usage by Poly/ML (approx. 20 MB instead
wenzelm@12753
   566
of 40 MB), cf. ML_OPTIONS;
wenzelm@12753
   567
wenzelm@11633
   568
* system: Proof General keywords specification is now part of the
wenzelm@11633
   569
Isabelle distribution (see etc/isar-keywords.el);
wenzelm@11633
   570
wenzelm@12728
   571
* system: support for persistent Proof General sessions (refrain from
wenzelm@12728
   572
outdating all loaded theories on startup); user may create writable
wenzelm@12728
   573
logic images like this: ``isabelle -q HOL Test'';
wenzelm@12597
   574
wenzelm@11551
   575
* system: smart selection of Isabelle process versus Isabelle
wenzelm@11572
   576
interface, accommodates case-insensitive file systems (e.g. HFS+); may
wenzelm@11572
   577
run both "isabelle" and "Isabelle" even if file names are badly
wenzelm@11572
   578
damaged (executable inspects the case of the first letter of its own
wenzelm@11572
   579
name); added separate "isabelle-process" and "isabelle-interface";
wenzelm@11551
   580
wenzelm@12472
   581
* system: refrain from any attempt at filtering input streams; no
wenzelm@12472
   582
longer support ``8bit'' encoding of old isabelle font, instead proper
wenzelm@12472
   583
iso-latin characters may now be used; the related isatools
wenzelm@12472
   584
"symbolinput" and "nonascii" have disappeared as well;
wenzelm@12472
   585
wenzelm@12472
   586
* system: removed old "xterm" interface (the print modes "xterm" and
wenzelm@12472
   587
"xterm_color" are still available for direct use in a suitable
wenzelm@12472
   588
terminal);

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES ***
nipkow@10224
   596
paulson@11241
   597
* HOL: please note that theories in the Library and elsewhere often use the
paulson@11241
   598
new-style (Isar) format; to refer to their theorems in an ML script you must
wenzelm@12622
   599
bind them to ML identifers by e.g.      val thm_name = thm "thm_name";
paulson@11241
   600
wenzelm@11043
   601
* HOL: inductive package no longer splits induction rule aggressively,
wenzelm@11043
   602
but only as far as specified by the introductions given; the old
oheimb@11130
   603
format may be recovered via ML function complete_split_rule or attribute
wenzelm@11043
   604
'split_rule (complete)';
wenzelm@11043
   605
wenzelm@10998
   606
* HOL: induct renamed to lfp_induct, lfp_Tarski to lfp_unfold,
wenzelm@10998
   607
gfp_Tarski to gfp_unfold;
nipkow@10224
   608
paulson@10288
   609
* HOL: contrapos, contrapos2 renamed to contrapos_nn, contrapos_pp;
paulson@10288
   610
wenzelm@10858
   611
* HOL: infix "dvd" now has priority 50 rather than 70 (because it is a
wenzelm@10858
   612
relation); infix "^^" has been renamed "``"; infix "``" has been
wenzelm@10858
   613
renamed "`"; "univalent" has been renamed "single_valued";
nipkow@10793
   614
wenzelm@10998
   615
* HOL/Real: "rinv" and "hrinv" replaced by overloaded "inverse"
wenzelm@10998
   616
operation;
wenzelm@10998
   617
nipkow@10868
   618
* HOLCF: infix "`" has been renamed "$"; the symbol syntax is \<cdot>;
nipkow@10856
   619
wenzelm@10391
   620
* Isar: 'obtain' no longer declares "that" fact as simp/intro;
wenzelm@10391
   621
wenzelm@10401
   622
* Isar/HOL: method 'induct' now handles non-atomic goals; as a
wenzelm@10401
   623
consequence, it is no longer monotonic wrt. the local goal context
wenzelm@10401
   624
(which is now passed through the inductive cases);
wenzelm@10401
   625
wenzelm@10976
   626
* Document preparation: renamed standard symbols \<ll> to \<lless> and
wenzelm@10976
   627
\<gg> to \<ggreater>;

wenzelm@10858
   632
* \isabellestyle{NAME} selects version of Isabelle output (currently
wenzelm@10858
   633
available: are "it" for near math-mode best-style output, "sl" for
wenzelm@10858
   634
slanted text style, and "tt" for plain type-writer; if no
wenzelm@10858
   635
\isabellestyle command is given, output is according to slanted
wenzelm@10858
   636
type-writer);
wenzelm@10858
   637
wenzelm@10322
   638
* support sub/super scripts (for single symbols only), input syntax is
wenzelm@10322
   639
like this: "A\<^sup>*" or "A\<^sup>\<star>";
wenzelm@10322
   640
wenzelm@10858
   641
* some more standard symbols; see Appendix A of the system manual for
wenzelm@11062
   642
the complete list of symbols defined in isabellesym.sty;
wenzelm@10858
   643
wenzelm@10998
   644
* improved isabelle style files; more abstract symbol implementation
wenzelm@10998
   645
(should now use \isamath{...} and \isatext{...} in custom symbol
wenzelm@10998
   646
definitions);
wenzelm@10998
   647
wenzelm@10634
   648
* antiquotation @{goals} and @{subgoals} for output of *dynamic* goals
wenzelm@10634
   649
state; Note that presentation of goal states does not conform to
wenzelm@10634
   650
actual human-readable proof documents.  Please do not include goal
wenzelm@10634
   651
states into document output unless you really know what you are doing!
wenzelm@10322
   652
wenzelm@11062
   653
* proper indentation of antiquoted output with proportional LaTeX
wenzelm@11062
   654
fonts;
wenzelm@10862
   655
wenzelm@11050
   656
* no_document ML operator temporarily disables LaTeX document
wenzelm@11050
   657
generation;
wenzelm@11050
   658
wenzelm@11062
   659

wenzelm@10306
   662
*** Isar ***
wenzelm@10306
   663
wenzelm@10547
   664
* Pure: Isar now suffers initial goal statements to contain unbound
wenzelm@10547
   665
schematic variables (this does not conform to actual readable proof
wenzelm@10547
   666
documents, due to unpredictable outcome and non-compositional proof
wenzelm@10547
   667
checking); users who know what they are doing may use schematic goals
wenzelm@10547
   668
for Prolog-style synthesis of proven results;
wenzelm@10547
   669
wenzelm@10391
   670
* Pure: assumption method (an implicit finishing) now handles actual
wenzelm@10391
   671
rules as well;
wenzelm@10391
   672
wenzelm@10391
   673
* Pure: improved 'obtain' --- moved to Pure, insert "that" into
wenzelm@10391
   674
initial goal, declare "that" only as Pure intro (only for single
wenzelm@10391
   675
steps); the "that" rule assumption may now be involved in implicit
wenzelm@10391
   676
finishing, thus ".." becomes a feasible for trivial obtains;
wenzelm@10391
   677
wenzelm@10391
   678
* Pure: default proof step now includes 'intro_classes'; thus trivial
wenzelm@10391
   679
instance proofs may be performed by "..";
wenzelm@10391
   680
wenzelm@10391
   681
* Pure: ?thesis / ?this / "..." now work for pure meta-level
wenzelm@10391
   682
statements as well;
wenzelm@10306
   683
wenzelm@11097
   684
* Pure: more robust selection of calculational rules;
wenzelm@11097
   685
wenzelm@10858
   686
* Pure: the builtin notion of 'finished' goal now includes the ==-refl
wenzelm@10858
   687
rule (as well as the assumption rule);
wenzelm@10858
   688
wenzelm@10858
   689
* Pure: 'thm_deps' command visualizes dependencies of theorems and
wenzelm@10858
   690
lemmas, using the graph browser tool;
wenzelm@10858
   691
wenzelm@10944
   692
* Pure: predict failure of "show" in interactive mode;
wenzelm@10944
   693
wenzelm@11016
   694
* Pure: 'thms_containing' now takes actual terms as arguments;
wenzelm@11016
   695
wenzelm@10401
   696
* HOL: improved method 'induct' --- now handles non-atomic goals
wenzelm@10401
   697
(potential INCOMPATIBILITY); tuned error handling;
wenzelm@10401
   698
wenzelm@10557
   699
* HOL: cases and induct rules now provide explicit hints about the
wenzelm@10547
   700
number of facts to be consumed (0 for "type" and 1 for "set" rules);
wenzelm@10547
   701
any remaining facts are inserted into the goal verbatim;
wenzelm@10547
   702
wenzelm@10858
   703
* HOL: local contexts (aka cases) may now contain term bindings as
wenzelm@10858
   704
well; the 'cases' and 'induct' methods new provide a ?case binding for
wenzelm@10858
   705
the result to be shown in each case;
wenzelm@10858
   706
wenzelm@10770
   707
* HOL: added 'recdef_tc' command;
wenzelm@10770
   708
wenzelm@11016
   709
* isatool convert assists in eliminating legacy ML scripts;
wenzelm@11016

wenzelm@10245
   712
*** HOL ***
wenzelm@10245
   713
wenzelm@10245
   714
* HOL/Library: a collection of generic theories to be used together
wenzelm@10245
   715
with main HOL; the theory loader path already includes this directory
wenzelm@10245
   716
by default; the following existing theories have been moved here:
wenzelm@10245
   717
HOL/Induct/Multiset, HOL/Induct/Acc (as Accessible_Part), HOL/While
wenzelm@10337
   718
(as While_Combinator), HOL/Lex/Prefix (as List_Prefix);
wenzelm@10245
   719
wenzelm@10966
   720
* HOL/Unix: "Some aspects of Unix file-system security", a typical
wenzelm@10966
   721
modelling and verification task performed in Isabelle/HOL +
wenzelm@10966
   722
Isabelle/Isar + Isabelle document preparation (by Markus Wenzel).
wenzelm@10966
   723
wenzelm@11094
   724
* HOL/Algebra: special summation operator SUM no longer exists, it has
wenzelm@11094
   725
been replaced by setsum; infix 'assoc' now has priority 50 (like
wenzelm@11094
   726
'dvd'); axiom 'one_not_zero' has been moved from axclass 'ring' to
wenzelm@11094
   727
'domain', this makes the theory consistent with mathematical
wenzelm@11094
   728
literature;
wenzelm@11094
   729
wenzelm@10514
   730
* HOL basics: added overloaded operations "inverse" and "divide"
wenzelm@10726
   731
(infix "/"), syntax for generic "abs" operation, generic summation
wenzelm@11094
   732
operator \<Sum>;
wenzelm@10452
   733
wenzelm@10391
   734
* HOL/typedef: simplified package, provide more useful rules (see also
wenzelm@10391
   735
HOL/subset.thy);
wenzelm@10391
   736
wenzelm@10915
   737
* HOL/datatype: induction rule for arbitrarily branching datatypes is
wenzelm@10915
   738
now expressed as a proper nested rule (old-style tactic scripts may
wenzelm@10915
   739
require atomize_strip_tac to cope with non-atomic premises);
wenzelm@10915
   740
wenzelm@10915
   741
* HOL: renamed theory "Prod" to "Product_Type", renamed "split" rule
wenzelm@10915
   742
to "split_conv" (old name still available for compatibility);
wenzelm@10915
   743
wenzelm@10915
   744
* HOL: improved concrete syntax for strings (e.g. allows translation
wenzelm@10915
   745
rules with string literals);
wenzelm@10915
   746
paulson@12245
   747
* HOL-Real-Hyperreal: this extends HOL-Real with the hyperreals
paulson@12245
   748
 and Fleuriot's mechanization of analysis, including the transcendental
paulson@12245
   749
 functions for the reals;
paulson@10756
   750
wenzelm@11094
   751
* HOL/Real, HOL/Hyperreal: improved arithmetic simplification;
wenzelm@10391
   752
wenzelm@10858
   753
paulson@10474
   754
*** CTT ***
paulson@10474
   755
wenzelm@10547
   756
* CTT: x-symbol support for Pi, Sigma, -->, : (membership); note that
wenzelm@10547
   757
"lam" is displayed as TWO lambda-symbols
paulson@10474
   758
wenzelm@10547
   759
* CTT: theory Main now available, containing everything (that is, Bool
wenzelm@10547
   760
and Arith);
wenzelm@10547
   761
paulson@10474

   763
*** General ***
wenzelm@10391
   764
wenzelm@10547
   765
* Pure: the Simplifier has been implemented properly as a derived rule
wenzelm@10547
   766
outside of the actual kernel (at last!); the overall performance
wenzelm@10547
   767
penalty in practical applications is about 50%, while reliability of
wenzelm@10547
   768
the Isabelle inference kernel has been greatly improved;
wenzelm@10547
   769
wenzelm@11112
   770
* print modes "brackets" and "no_brackets" control output of nested =>
wenzelm@11112
   771
(types) and ==> (props); the default behaviour is "brackets";
wenzelm@11112
   772
wenzelm@10391
   773
* Provers: fast_tac (and friends) now handle actual object-logic rules
wenzelm@10391
   774
as assumptions as well;
wenzelm@10391
   775
wenzelm@11124
   776
* system: support Poly/ML 4.0;
wenzelm@11124
   777
wenzelm@11124
   778
* system: isatool install handles KDE version 1 or 2;
wenzelm@11124

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES ***
paulson@8014
   786
wenzelm@8848
   787
* HOL: simplification of natural numbers is much changed; to partly
wenzelm@8848
   788
recover the old behaviour (e.g. to prevent n+n rewriting to #2*n)
wenzelm@8848
   789
issue the following ML commands:
wenzelm@8848
   790
wenzelm@8848
   791
  Delsimprocs Nat_Numeral_Simprocs.cancel_numerals;
wenzelm@8848
   792
  Delsimprocs [Nat_Numeral_Simprocs.combine_numerals];
paulson@8788
   793
wenzelm@10129
   794
* HOL: simplification no longer dives into case-expressions; this is
wenzelm@10129
   795
controlled by "t.weak_case_cong" for each datatype t;
wenzelm@10003
   796
wenzelm@10003
   797
* HOL: nat_less_induct renamed to less_induct;
wenzelm@10003
   798
wenzelm@10003
   799
* HOL: systematic renaming of the SOME (Eps) rules, may use isatool
wenzelm@10003
   800
fixsome to patch .thy and .ML sources automatically;
paulson@8967
   801

  select1_equality -> some1_equality
wenzelm@10003
   808
  Eps_sym_eq       -> some_sym_eq_trivial

  Eps_eq           -> some_eq_trivial
wenzelm@10003
   810
wenzelm@10003
   811
* HOL: exhaust_tac on datatypes superceded by new generic case_tac;
wenzelm@10003
   812
wenzelm@10003
   813
* HOL: removed obsolete theorem binding expand_if (refer to split_if
wenzelm@10003
   814
instead);
wenzelm@10003
   815
wenzelm@10003
   816
* HOL: the recursion equations generated by 'recdef' are now called
wenzelm@10003
   817
f.simps instead of f.rules;
wenzelm@10003
   818
wenzelm@10003
   819
* HOL: qed_spec_mp now also handles bounded ALL as well;
wenzelm@10003
   820
wenzelm@10003
   821
* HOL: 0 is now overloaded, so the type constraint ":: nat" may
wenzelm@10003
   822
sometimes be needed;
wenzelm@10003
   823
wenzelm@10003
   824
* HOL: the constant for "f``x" is now "image" rather than "op ``";
paulson@8014
   825
paulson@10065
   826
* HOL: the constant for "f-``x" is now "vimage" rather than "op -``";

* HOL: the disjoint sum is now "<+>" instead of "Plus"; the cartesian
wenzelm@9330
   829
product is now "<*>" instead of "Times"; the lexicographic product is
wenzelm@9330
   830
now "<*lex*>" instead of "**";
nipkow@8705
   831
wenzelm@10003
   832
* HOL: theory Sexp is now in HOL/Induct examples (it used to be part
wenzelm@10003
   833
of main HOL, but was unused); better use HOL's datatype package;
paulson@9971
   834
wenzelm@10137
   835
* HOL: removed "symbols" syntax for constant "override" of theory Map;
wenzelm@10137
   836
the old syntax may be recovered as follows:
wenzelm@10137
   837
wenzelm@10137
   838
  syntax (symbols)
wenzelm@10137
   839
    override  :: "('a ~=> 'b) => ('a ~=> 'b) => ('a ~=> 'b)"
wenzelm@10137
   840
      (infixl "\\<oplus>" 100)
wenzelm@10137
   841
wenzelm@8848
   842
* HOL/Real: "rabs" replaced by overloaded "abs" function;
wenzelm@8848
   843
wenzelm@8887
   844
* HOL/ML: even fewer consts are declared as global (see theories Ord,
wenzelm@8887
   845
Lfp, Gfp, WF); this only affects ML packages that refer to const names
wenzelm@8887
   846
internally;
wenzelm@8887
   847
wenzelm@10003
   848
* HOL and ZF: syntax for quotienting wrt an equivalence relation
wenzelm@10003
   849
changed from A/r to A//r;
wenzelm@9908
   850
wenzelm@10003
   851
* ZF: new treatment of arithmetic (nat & int) may break some old
wenzelm@10003
   852
proofs;
wenzelm@8921
   853
wenzelm@10003
   854
* Isar: renamed some attributes (RS -> THEN, simplify -> simplified,
wenzelm@10003
   855
rulify -> rule_format, elimify -> elim_format, ...);
paulson@9542
   856
wenzelm@9941
   857
* Isar/Provers: intro/elim/dest attributes changed; renamed
wenzelm@9941
   858
intro/intro!/intro!! flags to intro!/intro/intro? (in most cases, one
wenzelm@9937
   859
should have to change intro!! to intro? only); replaced "delrule" by
wenzelm@9937
   860
"rule del";
wenzelm@9437
   861
wenzelm@9612
   862
* Isar/HOL: renamed "intrs" to "intros" in inductive definitions;
wenzelm@9612
   863
wenzelm@9437
   864
* Provers: strengthened force_tac by using new first_best_tac;
oheimb@9402
   865
wenzelm@10003
   866
* LaTeX document preparation: several changes of isabelle.sty (see
wenzelm@10003
   867
lib/texinputs);
wenzelm@8729

wenzelm@8487
   870
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@8358
   871
wenzelm@9198
   872
* formal comments (text blocks etc.) in new-style theories may now
wenzelm@9753
   873
contain antiquotations of thm/prop/term/typ/text to be presented
wenzelm@9753
   874
according to latex print mode; concrete syntax is like this:
wenzelm@9753
   875
@{term[show_types] "f(x) = a + x"};
wenzelm@9198
   876
wenzelm@8358
   877
* isatool mkdir provides easy setup of Isabelle session directories,
wenzelm@8518
   878
including proper document sources;
wenzelm@8358
   879
wenzelm@8358
   880
* generated LaTeX sources are now deleted after successful run
wenzelm@8358
   881
(isatool document -c); may retain a copy somewhere else via -D option
wenzelm@8358
   882
of isatool usedir;
wenzelm@8358
   883
wenzelm@8566
   884
* isatool usedir -D now lets isatool latex -o sty update the Isabelle
wenzelm@10003
   885
style files, achieving self-contained LaTeX sources and simplifying
wenzelm@10003
   886
LaTeX debugging;
wenzelm@8566
   887
wenzelm@8518
   888
* old-style theories now produce (crude) LaTeX output as well;
wenzelm@8358
   889
wenzelm@9057
   890
* browser info session directories are now self-contained (may be put
wenzelm@9437
   891
on WWW server seperately); improved graphs of nested sessions; removed
wenzelm@9437
   892
graph for 'all sessions';
wenzelm@9057
   893
wenzelm@10003
   894
* several improvements in isabelle style files; \isabellestyle{it}
wenzelm@10003
   895
produces fake math mode output; \isamarkupheader is now \section by
wenzelm@10003
   896
default; see lib/texinputs/isabelle.sty etc.;

*** Isar ***
wenzelm@8184
   900
wenzelm@10003
   901
* Isar/Pure: local results and corresponding term bindings are now
wenzelm@10003
   902
subject to Hindley-Milner polymorphism (similar to ML); this
wenzelm@10003
   903
accommodates incremental type-inference very nicely;
wenzelm@8283
   904
wenzelm@10003
   905
* Isar/Pure: new derived language element 'obtain' supports
wenzelm@10003
   906
generalized existence reasoning;
wenzelm@8621
   907
wenzelm@10003
   908
* Isar/Pure: new calculational elements 'moreover' and 'ultimately'
wenzelm@10003
   909
support accumulation of results, without applying any rules yet;
wenzelm@10003
   910
useful to collect intermediate results without explicit name
wenzelm@10003
   911
references, and for use with transitivity rules with more than 2
wenzelm@10003
   912
premises;
wenzelm@8184
   913
wenzelm@10003
   914
* Isar/Pure: scalable support for case-analysis type proofs: new
wenzelm@10003
   915
'case' language element refers to local contexts symbolically, as
wenzelm@10003
   916
produced by certain proof methods; internally, case names are attached
wenzelm@10003
   917
to theorems as "tags";
wenzelm@8440
   918
wenzelm@10003
   919
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'hide' removes declarations from
wenzelm@9330
   920
class/type/const name spaces;
wenzelm@9330
   921
wenzelm@10003
   922
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'defs' supports option "(overloaded)" to
wenzelm@9330
   923
indicate potential overloading;
wenzelm@9330
   924
wenzelm@10003
   925
* Isar/Pure: changed syntax of local blocks from {{ }} to { };
wenzelm@8621
   926
wenzelm@10003
   927
* Isar/Pure: syntax of sorts made 'inner', i.e. have to write
wenzelm@10003
   928
"{a,b,c}" instead of {a,b,c};
wenzelm@9011
   929
wenzelm@10003
   930
* Isar/Pure now provides its own version of intro/elim/dest
wenzelm@10003
   931
attributes; useful for building new logics, but beware of confusion
wenzelm@10003
   932
with the version in Provers/classical;
wenzelm@9612
   933
wenzelm@10003
   934
* Isar/Pure: the local context of (non-atomic) goals is provided via
wenzelm@10003
   935
case name 'antecedent';
wenzelm@8440
   936
wenzelm@10003
   937
* Isar/Pure: removed obsolete 'transfer' attribute (transfer of thms
wenzelm@10003
   938
to the current context is now done automatically);
wenzelm@9383
   939
wenzelm@10003
   940
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'method_setup' provides a simple interface
wenzelm@10003
   941
for definining proof methods in ML;
wenzelm@9612
   942
wenzelm@10003
   943
* Isar/Provers: intro/elim/dest attributes changed; renamed
wenzelm@9941
   944
intro/intro!/intro!! flags to intro!/intro/intro? (INCOMPATIBILITY, in
wenzelm@9941
   945
most cases, one should have to change intro!! to intro? only);
wenzelm@9941
   946
replaced "delrule" by "rule del";
wenzelm@8283
   947
wenzelm@10003
   948
* Isar/Provers: new 'hypsubst' method, plain 'subst' method and
wenzelm@10003
   949
'symmetric' attribute (the latter supercedes [RS sym]);
wenzelm@10003
   950
wenzelm@10003
   951
* Isar/Provers: splitter support (via 'split' attribute and 'simp'
wenzelm@10003
   952
method modifier); 'simp' method: 'only:' modifier removes loopers as
wenzelm@10003
   953
well (including splits);
wenzelm@10003
   954
wenzelm@10003
   955
* Isar/Provers: Simplifier and Classical methods now support all kind
wenzelm@10003
   956
of modifiers used in the past, including 'cong', 'iff', etc.
wenzelm@10003
   957
wenzelm@10003
   958
* Isar/Provers: added 'fastsimp' and 'clarsimp' methods (combination
wenzelm@10003
   959
of Simplifier and Classical reasoner);
wenzelm@10003
   960
wenzelm@10003
   961
* Isar/HOL: new proof method 'cases' and improved version of 'induct'
wenzelm@10003
   962
now support named cases; major packages (inductive, datatype, primrec,
wenzelm@10003
   963
recdef) support case names and properly name parameters;
wenzelm@9612
   964
wenzelm@10003
   965
* Isar/HOL: new transitivity rules for substitution in inequalities --
wenzelm@10003
   966
monotonicity conditions are extracted to be proven at end of
wenzelm@10003
   967
calculations;
wenzelm@10003
   968
wenzelm@10003
   969
* Isar/HOL: removed 'case_split' thm binding, should use 'cases' proof
wenzelm@10003
   970
method anyway;
wenzelm@10003
   971
wenzelm@10003
   972
* Isar/HOL: removed old expand_if = split_if; theorems if_splits =
wenzelm@10003
   973
split_if split_if_asm; datatype package provides theorems foo.splits =
wenzelm@10003
   974
foo.split foo.split_asm for each datatype;
wenzelm@10003
   975
wenzelm@10003
   976
* Isar/HOL: tuned inductive package, rename "intrs" to "intros"
wenzelm@10003
   977
(potential INCOMPATIBILITY), emulation of mk_cases feature for proof
wenzelm@10003
   978
scripts: new 'inductive_cases' command and 'ind_cases' method; (Note:
wenzelm@10003
   979
use "(cases (simplified))" method in proper proof texts);
wenzelm@10003
   980
wenzelm@10003
   981
* Isar/HOL: added global 'arith_split' attribute for 'arith' method;
wenzelm@10003
   982
wenzelm@10003
   983
* Isar: names of theorems etc. may be natural numbers as well;
wenzelm@10003
   984
wenzelm@10003
   985
* Isar: 'pr' command: optional arguments for goals_limit and
wenzelm@9724
   986
ProofContext.prems_limit; no longer prints theory contexts, but only
wenzelm@9724
   987
proof states;
wenzelm@8487
   988
wenzelm@10003
   989
* Isar: diagnostic commands 'pr', 'thm', 'prop', 'term', 'typ' admit
wenzelm@8518
   990
additional print modes to be specified; e.g. "pr(latex)" will print
wenzelm@8518
   991
proof state according to the Isabelle LaTeX style;
wenzelm@8487
   992
wenzelm@10003
   993
* Isar: improved support for emulating tactic scripts, including proof
wenzelm@9612
   994
methods 'rule_tac' etc., 'cut_tac', 'thin_tac', 'subgoal_tac',
wenzelm@9612
   995
'rename_tac', 'rotate_tac', 'tactic', and 'case_tac' / 'induct_tac'
wenzelm@9612
   996
(for HOL datatypes);
wenzelm@8534
   997
wenzelm@10003
   998
* Isar: simplified (more robust) goal selection of proof methods: 1st
wenzelm@10003
   999
goal, all goals, or explicit goal specifier (tactic emulation); thus
wenzelm@10003
  1000
'proof method scripts' have to be in depth-first order;
wenzelm@8673
  1001
wenzelm@10003
  1002
* Isar: tuned 'let' syntax: replaced 'as' keyword by 'and';
wenzelm@8729
  1003
wenzelm@10003
  1004
* Isar: removed 'help' command, which hasn't been too helpful anyway;
wenzelm@10003
  1005
should instead use individual commands for printing items
wenzelm@10003
  1006
(print_commands, print_methods etc.);
wenzelm@9224
  1007
wenzelm@10003
  1008
* Isar: added 'nothing' --- the empty list of theorems;

wenzelm@10164
  1039
wenzelm@10003

* HOL/Lambda: converted into new-style theory and document;

wenzelm@10003
  1042
* HOL/ex/Multiquote: example of multiple nested quotations and
wenzelm@10003
  1043

wenzelm@10003
  1044

wenzelm@8848
  1045
wenzelm@9612

  1050
* HOL: 0 is now overloaded over the new sort "zero", allowing its use with

  1051
other numeric types and also as the identity of groups, rings, etc.;
paulson@8967
  1052
paulson@8967
  1053
* HOL: new axclass plus_ac0 for addition with the AC-laws and 0 as identity.
paulson@8967
  1054
Types nat and int belong to this axclass;
paulson@8967
  1055
wenzelm@10003
  1056
* HOL: greatly improved simplification involving numerals of type nat, int, real:
paulson@8788
  1057
   (i + #8 + j) = Suc k simplifies to  #7 + (i + j) = k
paulson@8832
  1058
   i*j + k + j*#3*i     simplifies to  #4*(i*j) + k
paulson@8832
  1059
  two terms #m*u and #n*u are replaced by #(m+n)*u
paulson@8832
  1060
    (where #m, #n and u can implicitly be 1; this is simproc combine_numerals)
paulson@8832
  1061
  and the term/formula #m*u+x ~~ #n*u+y simplifies simplifies to #(m-n)+x ~~ y
paulson@8832

* HOL: meson_tac is available (previously in ex/meson.ML); it is a
wenzelm@10003
  1065
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
  1067
wenzelm@8848
  1068
* HOL: new version of "case_tac" subsumes both boolean case split and
wenzelm@8440
  1069
"exhaust_tac" on datatypes; INCOMPATIBILITY: exhaust_tac no longer
wenzelm@8518

exists, may define val exhaust_tac = case_tac for ad-hoc portability;
wenzelm@8440
  1071
wenzelm@8848
  1072
* HOL: simplification no longer dives into case-expressions: only the
wenzelm@10129
  1073
selector expression is simplified, but not the remaining arms; to
wenzelm@10129
  1074
enable full simplification of case-expressions for datatype t, you may
wenzelm@10129
  1075
remove t.weak_case_cong from the simpset, either globally (Delcongs

function 'f' are now called f.simps instead of f.rules; if all
wenzelm@8848
  1080
termination conditions are proved automatically, these simplification
wenzelm@8848
  1081
rules are added to the simpset, as in primrec; rules may be named
wenzelm@8848
  1082
individually as well, resulting in a separate list of theorems for
wenzelm@8848
  1083
each equation;
wenzelm@8848
  1084
wenzelm@9489
  1085
* HOL/While is a new theory that provides a while-combinator. It
wenzelm@9489
  1086
permits the definition of tail-recursive functions without the
wenzelm@9489
  1087
provision of a termination measure. The latter is necessary once the

  1088
invariant proof rule for while is applied.
nipkow@9457

nipkow@9737
  1100
wenzelm@10003
  1101
* HOL: theory Sexp now in HOL/Induct examples (it used to be part of
wenzelm@10003
  1102
main HOL, but was unused);
nipkow@8626
  1103
wenzelm@10003
  1104
* HOL: fewer consts declared as global (e.g. have to refer to
wenzelm@10003
  1105
"Lfp.lfp" instead of "lfp" internally; affects ML packages only);
wenzelm@8887
  1106
wenzelm@10003
  1107
* HOL: tuned AST representation of nested pairs, avoiding bogus output
wenzelm@10003
  1108
in case of overlap with user translations (e.g. judgements over
wenzelm@10003
  1109
tuples); (note that the underlying logical represenation is still
wenzelm@10003
  1110
bogus);

  1114
wenzelm@10003

wenzelm@10003
  1116
expressions over nat and int;
paulson@9542
  1117
wenzelm@10003
  1118
* ZF: new treatment of nat to minimize type-checking: all operators
wenzelm@10003
  1119
coerce their operands to a natural number using the function natify,
wenzelm@10003
  1120
making the algebraic laws unconditional;
paulson@9542
  1121
wenzelm@10003
  1122
* ZF: as above, for int: operators coerce their operands to an integer
wenzelm@10003
  1123
using the function intify;
paulson@9542
  1124
wenzelm@10003
  1125
* ZF: the integer library now contains many of the usual laws for the
wenzelm@10003
  1126
orderings, including $<=, and monotonicity laws for $+ and $*;
paulson@9542
  1127
wenzelm@10003
  1128
* ZF: new example ZF/ex/NatSum to demonstrate integer arithmetic
wenzelm@10003
  1129
simplification;
paulson@9388
  1130
wenzelm@10003
  1131
* FOL and ZF: AddIffs now available, giving theorems of the form P<->Q
wenzelm@10003

* Provers: blast_tac now handles actual object-logic rules as
wenzelm@10003
  1138
assumptions; note that auto_tac uses blast_tac internally as well;
wenzelm@10003
  1139
wenzelm@10003
  1140
* Provers: new functions rulify/rulify_no_asm: thm -> thm for turning
wenzelm@10003
  1141
outer -->/All/Ball into ==>/!!; qed_spec_mp now uses rulify_no_asm;
wenzelm@10003

wenzelm@9941
  1143
* Provers: delrules now handles destruct rules as well (no longer need
wenzelm@9941
  1144
explicit make_elim);
wenzelm@9941
  1145
wenzelm@10003
  1146
* Provers: Blast_tac now warns of and ignores "weak elimination rules" e.g.
wenzelm@10003
  1147
  [| inj ?f;          ?f ?x = ?f ?y; ?x = ?y ==> ?W |] ==> ?W
wenzelm@10003
  1148
use instead the strong form,
wenzelm@10003
  1149
  [| inj ?f; ~ ?W ==> ?f ?x = ?f ?y; ?x = ?y ==> ?W |] ==> ?W
wenzelm@10003
  1150
in HOL, FOL and ZF the function cla_make_elim will create such rules
wenzelm@10003
  1151
from destruct-rules;
wenzelm@9489
  1152
wenzelm@9709
  1153
* Provers: Simplifier.easy_setup provides a fast path to basic
wenzelm@9709
  1154
Simplifier setup for new object-logics;
wenzelm@9709
  1155
wenzelm@9709
  1156
* Pure: AST translation rules no longer require constant head on LHS;
wenzelm@9349
  1157
wenzelm@9709
  1158
* Pure: improved name spaces: ambiguous output is qualified; support
wenzelm@9709
  1159
for hiding of names;
wenzelm@8729
  1160
wenzelm@10003
  1161
* system: smart setup of canonical ML_HOME, ISABELLE_INTERFACE, and
wenzelm@10003
  1162
XSYMBOL_HOME; no longer need to do manual configuration in most
wenzelm@10003
  1163
situations;
wenzelm@10003
  1164
wenzelm@9709
  1165
* system: compression of ML heaps images may now be controlled via -c
wenzelm@9709
  1166
option of isabelle and isatool usedir (currently only observed by
wenzelm@9709
  1167
Poly/ML);
wenzelm@8358
  1168
wenzelm@9981
  1169
* system: isatool installfonts may handle X-Symbol fonts as well (very
wenzelm@9981
  1170
useful for remote X11);
wenzelm@9981
  1171
wenzelm@9709
  1172
* system: provide TAGS file for Isabelle sources;
wenzelm@9052
  1173
wenzelm@9288
  1174
* ML: infix 'OF' is a version of 'MRS' with more appropriate argument
wenzelm@9288
  1175

wenzelm@9288
  1176
wenzelm@8994
  1177
* ML: renamed flags Syntax.trace_norm_ast to Syntax.trace_ast; global
wenzelm@8994
  1178
timing flag supersedes proof_timing and Toplevel.trace;
wenzelm@8994
  1179
wenzelm@10003
  1180
* ML: new combinators |>> and |>>> for incremental transformations
wenzelm@10003
  1181
with secondary results (e.g. certain theory extensions):
wenzelm@10003
  1182
wenzelm@9330
  1183
* ML: PureThy.add_defs gets additional argument to indicate potential
wenzelm@9330
  1184
overloading (usually false);
wenzelm@9330
  1185
wenzelm@10003
  1186
* ML: PureThy.add_thms/add_axioms/add_defs now return theorems as
wenzelm@10003

paulson@6922
  1196
* HOL: The THEN and ELSE parts of conditional expressions (if P then x else y)
paulson@6922
  1197
are no longer simplified.  (This allows the simplifier to unfold recursive
paulson@6922
  1198
functional programs.)  To restore the old behaviour, declare
wenzelm@7215
  1199
wenzelm@7215
  1200
    Delcongs [if_weak_cong];
paulson@6922
  1201
wenzelm@6269
  1202
* HOL: Removed the obsolete syntax "Compl A"; use -A for set
wenzelm@6269
  1203
complement;
paulson@5931
  1204
wenzelm@6269
  1205
* HOL: the predicate "inj" is now defined by translation to "inj_on";
paulson@6174
  1206
berghofe@7847
  1207
* HOL/datatype: mutual_induct_tac no longer exists --
berghofe@7847
  1208
  use induct_tac "x_1 ... x_n" instead of mutual_induct_tac ["x_1", ..., "x_n"]
berghofe@7847
  1209
wenzelm@6386
  1210
* HOL/typedef: fixed type inference for representing set; type
wenzelm@6386
  1211
arguments now have to occur explicitly on the rhs as type constraints;
wenzelm@6386
  1212
wenzelm@6269
  1213
* ZF: The con_defs part of an inductive definition may no longer refer
wenzelm@6269
  1214
to constants declared in the same theory;
nipkow@6057
  1215
wenzelm@6269
  1216
* HOL, ZF: the function mk_cases, generated by the inductive
wenzelm@6269
  1217
definition package, has lost an argument.  To simplify its result, it
wenzelm@6269
  1218
uses the default simpset instead of a supplied list of theorems.
paulson@6141
  1219
wenzelm@7215
  1220
* HOL/List: the constructors of type list are now Nil and Cons;
wenzelm@7215
  1221
nipkow@7619
  1222
* Simplifier: the type of the infix ML functions
wenzelm@8729
  1223
        setSSolver addSSolver setSolver addSolver
nipkow@7619
  1224
is now  simpset * solver -> simpset  where `solver' is a new abstract type
nipkow@7619
  1225
for packaging solvers. A solver is created via
wenzelm@8729
  1226
        mk_solver: string -> (thm list -> int -> tactic) -> solver
nipkow@7619
  1227
where the string argument is only a comment.

*** Proof tools ***
paulson@6069
  1231
wenzelm@6343
  1232
* Provers/Arith/fast_lin_arith.ML contains a functor for creating a
wenzelm@6343
  1233
decision procedure for linear arithmetic. Currently it is used for
wenzelm@7593
  1234
types `nat', `int', and `real' in HOL (see below); it can, should and
wenzelm@7593
  1235
will be instantiated for other types and logics as well.
paulson@6069
  1236
nipkow@7324
  1237
* The simplifier now accepts rewrite rules with flexible heads, eg
nipkow@7324
  1238
     hom ?f ==> ?f(?x+?y) = ?f ?x + ?f ?y
nipkow@7324
  1239
  They are applied like any rule with a non-pattern lhs, i.e. by first-order
nipkow@7324
  1240
  matching.

* New Isabelle/Isar subsystem provides an alternative to traditional
wenzelm@7215
  1246
tactical theorem proving; together with the ProofGeneral/isar user
wenzelm@7215
  1247
interface it offers an interactive environment for developing human
wenzelm@7215
  1248
readable proof documents (Isar == Intelligible semi-automated
wenzelm@7886
  1249
reasoning); for further information see isatool doc isar-ref,

src/HOL/Isar_examples and http://isabelle.in.tum.de/Isar/
wenzelm@7886
  1251
wenzelm@9612
  1252
* improved and simplified presentation of theories: better HTML markup
wenzelm@9612
  1253
(including colors), graph views in several sizes; isatool usedir now
wenzelm@9612
  1254
provides a proper interface for user theories (via -P option); actual
wenzelm@9612
  1255
document preparation based on (PDF)LaTeX is available as well (for
wenzelm@9612
  1256
new-style theories only); see isatool doc system for more information;
wenzelm@7215
  1257
wenzelm@7252
  1258
* native support for Proof General, both for classic Isabelle and
wenzelm@7986
  1259
Isabelle/Isar;
wenzelm@7215
  1260
wenzelm@7791
  1261
* ML function thm_deps visualizes dependencies of theorems and lemmas,
wenzelm@7791
  1262
using the graph browser tool;
wenzelm@7791
  1263
wenzelm@6751
  1264
* Isabelle manuals now also available as PDF;
wenzelm@6751
  1265
wenzelm@6449
  1266
* theory loader rewritten from scratch (may not be fully
wenzelm@6449
  1267
bug-compatible); old loadpath variable has been replaced by show_path,
wenzelm@6671
  1268
add_path, del_path, reset_path functions; new operations such as
wenzelm@7593
  1269
update_thy, touch_thy, remove_thy, use/update_thy_only (see also
wenzelm@7593
  1270
isatool doc ref);
wenzelm@6449
  1271
wenzelm@7215
  1272
* improved isatool install: option -k creates KDE application icon,
wenzelm@7215
  1273
option -p DIR installs standalone binaries;
wenzelm@7215
  1274
wenzelm@7215
  1275
* added ML_PLATFORM setting (useful for cross-platform installations);
wenzelm@7215
  1276
more robust handling of platform specific ML images for SML/NJ;
wenzelm@7215
  1277
wenzelm@7886
  1278
* the settings environment is now statically scoped, i.e. it is never
wenzelm@7986
  1279
created again in sub-processes invoked from isabelle, isatool, or
wenzelm@7886
  1280
Isabelle;
wenzelm@7886
  1281
wenzelm@7215
  1282
* path element specification '~~' refers to '$ISABELLE_HOME';
wenzelm@7215
  1283
wenzelm@6343
  1284
* in locales, the "assumes" and "defines" parts may be omitted if
wenzelm@6343
  1285
empty;
wenzelm@5973
  1286
wenzelm@6269
  1287

wenzelm@6269
  1288
long arrows);
wenzelm@6259

wenzelm@6343
  1290
* new print_mode "HTML";
wenzelm@6343

wenzelm@6343
  1292
* new flag show_tags controls display of tags of theorems (which are

basically just comments that may be attached by some tools);
wenzelm@6343

** HOL arithmetic **
wenzelm@7215
  1324
wenzelm@6343
  1325
* There are now decision procedures for linear arithmetic over nat and
wenzelm@6343
  1326
int:
nipkow@6131
  1327
wenzelm@6343
  1328
1. arith_tac copes with arbitrary formulae involving `=', `<', `<=',
wenzelm@6343
  1329
`+', `-', `Suc', `min', `max' and numerical constants; other subterms
wenzelm@6343
  1330
are treated as atomic; subformulae not involving type `nat' or `int'
wenzelm@6343
  1331
are ignored; quantified subformulae are ignored unless they are
wenzelm@6343
  1332
positive universal or negative existential. The tactic has to be
wenzelm@6343
  1333
invoked by hand and can be a little bit slow. In particular, the
wenzelm@6343
  1334
running time is exponential in the number of occurrences of `min' and
wenzelm@6343
  1335
`max', and `-' on `nat'.
nipkow@6131
  1336
wenzelm@6343
  1337
2. fast_arith_tac is a cut-down version of arith_tac: it only takes
wenzelm@6343
  1338
(negated) (in)equalities among the premises and the conclusion into
wenzelm@6343
  1339
account (i.e. no compound formulae) and does not know about `min' and
wenzelm@6343
  1340
`max', and `-' on `nat'. It is fast and is used automatically by the
wenzelm@6343
  1341
simplifier.
nipkow@6131
  1342
wenzelm@6343
  1343
NB: At the moment, these decision procedures do not cope with mixed
wenzelm@6343
  1344
nat/int formulae where the two parts interact, such as `m < n ==>
wenzelm@6343
  1345
int(m) < int(n)'.
oheimb@6028
  1346
wenzelm@7215
  1347
* HOL/Numeral provides a generic theory of numerals (encoded
wenzelm@7313
  1348
efficiently as bit strings); setup for types nat/int/real is in place;
wenzelm@7215
  1349
INCOMPATIBILITY: since numeral syntax is now polymorphic, rather than
wenzelm@7215
  1350
int, existing theories and proof scripts may require a few additional
wenzelm@7215
  1351
type constraints;
wenzelm@7215
  1352
wenzelm@7215
  1353

wenzelm@7215
  1356

paulson@6922
  1358
paulson@7287
  1359
* An interface to the Stanford Validity Checker (SVC) is available through the
paulson@7287
  1360
tactic svc_tac.  Propositional tautologies and theorems of linear arithmetic
paulson@7287
  1361
are proved automatically.  SVC must be installed separately, and its results
paulson@7287
  1362
must be TAKEN ON TRUST (Isabelle does not check the proofs, but tags any
paulson@7287
  1363
invocation of the underlying oracle).  For SVC see

  theorems are now maintained within the theory (maintained via the
wenzelm@7791
  1385
  "mono" attribute);
berghofe@7780
  1386
wenzelm@7238
  1387
* HOL/datatype: Now also handles arbitrarily branching datatypes
wenzelm@7238
  1388
  (using function types) such as
wenzelm@7238
  1389
wenzelm@7238
  1390
  datatype 'a tree = Atom 'a | Branch "nat => 'a tree"
berghofe@7047
  1391
wenzelm@7326
  1392
* HOL/record: record_simproc (part of the default simpset) takes care
wenzelm@7326
  1393
of selectors applied to updated records; record_split_tac is no longer
wenzelm@7327
  1394
part of the default claset; update_defs may now be removed from the
wenzelm@7327
  1395
simpset in many cases; COMPATIBILITY: old behavior achieved by
wenzelm@7326
  1396
wenzelm@7326
  1397
  claset_ref () := claset() addSWrapper record_split_wrapper;
wenzelm@7326
  1398
  Delsimprocs [record_simproc]
wenzelm@7326
  1399
wenzelm@6386
  1400
* HOL/typedef: fixed type inference for representing set; type
wenzelm@6386
  1401
arguments now have to occur explicitly on the rhs as type constraints;
wenzelm@6386
  1402
paulson@7287
  1403
* HOL/recdef (TFL): 'congs' syntax now expects comma separated list of theorem
paulson@7287
  1404
names rather than an ML expression;
paulson@7287
  1405
paulson@7287
  1406
* HOL/defer_recdef (TFL): like recdef but the well-founded relation can be
paulson@7287
  1407
supplied later.  Program schemes can be defined, such as
paulson@7287
  1408
    "While B C s = (if B s then While B C (C s) else s)"
paulson@7287
  1409
where the well-founded relation can be chosen after B and C have been given.
wenzelm@6563
  1410
wenzelm@7215
  1411
* HOL/List: the constructors of type list are now Nil and Cons;
wenzelm@7215
  1412
INCOMPATIBILITY: while [] and infix # syntax is still there, of
wenzelm@7215
  1413
course, ML tools referring to List.list.op # etc. have to be adapted;
wenzelm@7215
  1414
wenzelm@7238
  1415
* HOL_quantifiers flag superseded by "HOL" print mode, which is
wenzelm@7238
  1416
disabled by default; run isabelle with option -m HOL to get back to
wenzelm@7238
  1417
the original Gordon/HOL-style output;
wenzelm@7238
  1418
wenzelm@7238
  1419
* HOL/Ord.thy: new bounded quantifier syntax (input only): ALL x<y. P,
wenzelm@7238
  1420
ALL x<=y. P, EX x<y. P, EX x<=y. P;
wenzelm@7238
  1421
wenzelm@7238
  1422
* HOL basic syntax simplified (more orthogonal): all variants of
wenzelm@7238
  1423
All/Ex now support plain / symbolic / HOL notation; plain syntax for
wenzelm@7238
  1424
Eps operator is provided as well: "SOME x. P[x]";
wenzelm@7238
  1425
berghofe@7320
  1426
* HOL/Sum.thy: sum_case has been moved to HOL/Datatype;
wenzelm@7261
  1427
wenzelm@7280
  1428
* HOL/Univ.thy: infix syntax <*>, <+>, <**>, <+> eliminated and made
wenzelm@7280
  1429
thus available for user theories;
wenzelm@7280
  1430
wenzelm@7300
  1431
* HOLCF/IOA/Sequents: renamed 'Cons' to 'Consq' to avoid clash with
wenzelm@7300
  1432
HOL/List; hardly an INCOMPATIBILITY since '>>' syntax is used all the
wenzelm@7300
  1433
time;
wenzelm@7300
  1434
wenzelm@7986
  1435
* HOL: new tactic smp_tac: int -> int -> tactic, which applies spec
wenzelm@7986
  1436
several times and then mp;

paulson@7113
  1440
wenzelm@7215
  1441
* the notation <<...>> is now available as a notation for sequences of
wenzelm@7215
  1442
formulas;
paulson@7113
  1443
paulson@7113
  1444
* the simplifier is now installed
paulson@7113
  1445
wenzelm@8729
  1446
* the axiom system has been generalized (thanks to Soren Heilmann)
paulson@7113
  1447
paulson@7113
  1448
* the classical reasoner now has a default rule database

paulson@6064
  1451
*** ZF ***
paulson@6064
  1452
paulson@6064
  1453
* new primrec section allows primitive recursive functions to be given
wenzelm@6269
  1454
directly (as in HOL) over datatypes and the natural numbers;
paulson@6064
  1455
wenzelm@6269
  1456
* new tactics induct_tac and exhaust_tac for induction (or case
wenzelm@6269
  1457
analysis) over datatypes and the natural numbers;
paulson@6064
  1458
paulson@6064
  1459
* the datatype declaration of type T now defines the recursor T_rec;
paulson@6064
  1460
paulson@6141
  1461
* simplification automatically does freeness reasoning for datatype
wenzelm@6269
  1462
constructors;
paulson@6141
  1463
wenzelm@6269
  1464
* automatic type-inference, with AddTCs command to insert new
wenzelm@6269
  1465
type-checking rules;
paulson@6155
  1466
wenzelm@6269
  1467
* datatype introduction rules are now added as Safe Introduction rules
wenzelm@6269
  1468
to the claset;
paulson@6155
  1469
wenzelm@6269
  1470
* the syntax "if P then x else y" is now available in addition to
wenzelm@6269
  1471
if(P,x,y);
wenzelm@6269

wenzelm@6343
  1474
*** Internal programming interfaces ***
wenzelm@6343
  1475
wenzelm@7919
  1476
* tuned simplifier trace output; new flag debug_simp;
wenzelm@7919
  1477
wenzelm@7420
  1478
* structures Vartab / Termtab (instances of TableFun) offer efficient
wenzelm@7420
  1479
tables indexed by indexname_ord / term_ord (compatible with aconv);
wenzelm@7420
  1480
wenzelm@6386
  1481
* AxClass.axclass_tac lost the theory argument;
wenzelm@6386
  1482
wenzelm@6343
  1483
* tuned current_goals_markers semantics: begin / end goal avoids
wenzelm@6343
  1484
printing empty lines;
wenzelm@6343
  1485
wenzelm@6343
  1486
* removed prs and prs_fn hook, which was broken because it did not
wenzelm@6343
  1487
include \n in its semantics, forcing writeln to add one
wenzelm@6343
  1488
uncoditionally; replaced prs_fn by writeln_fn; consider std_output:
wenzelm@6343
  1489
string -> unit if you really want to output text without newline;
wenzelm@6343
  1490
wenzelm@6343
  1491
* Symbol.output subject to print mode; INCOMPATIBILITY: defaults to
wenzelm@6343
  1492
plain output, interface builders may have to enable 'isabelle_font'
wenzelm@6343
  1493
mode to get Isabelle font glyphs as before;
wenzelm@6343
  1494
wenzelm@6343
  1495
* refined token_translation interface; INCOMPATIBILITY: output length
wenzelm@6343
  1496
now of type real instead of int;
wenzelm@6343
  1497
wenzelm@7196
  1498
* theory loader actions may be traced via new ThyInfo.add_hook
wenzelm@7196
  1499
interface (see src/Pure/Thy/thy_info.ML); example application: keep
wenzelm@7196
  1500
your own database of information attached to *whole* theories -- as
wenzelm@7196
  1501
opposed to intra-theory data slots offered via TheoryDataFun;
wenzelm@7196
  1502
wenzelm@7647
  1503
* proper handling of dangling sort hypotheses (at last!);
wenzelm@7647
  1504
Thm.strip_shyps and Drule.strip_shyps_warning take care of removing
wenzelm@7647
  1505
extra sort hypotheses that can be witnessed from the type signature;
wenzelm@7986
  1506
the force_strip_shyps flag is gone, any remaining shyps are simply
wenzelm@7986
  1507
left in the theorem (with a warning issued by strip_shyps_warning);

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES (see below for more details) ***
wenzelm@4842
  1515
wenzelm@5726
  1516
* several changes of automated proof tools;
wenzelm@5373
  1517
wenzelm@5726
  1518
* HOL: major changes to the inductive and datatype packages, including
wenzelm@5726
  1519
some minor incompatibilities of theory syntax;
berghofe@5214
  1520
wenzelm@5726
  1521
* HOL: renamed r^-1 to 'converse' from 'inverse'; 'inj_onto' is now
wenzelm@5217
  1522
called `inj_on';
paulson@5160
  1523
nipkow@5275
  1524
* HOL: removed duplicate thms in Arith:
nipkow@5275
  1525
  less_imp_add_less  should be replaced by  trans_less_add1
nipkow@5275
  1526
  le_imp_add_le      should be replaced by  trans_le_add1
paulson@5160
  1527
wenzelm@5726
  1528
* HOL: unary minus is now overloaded (new type constraints may be
wenzelm@5726
  1529
required);
paulson@5490
  1530
wenzelm@5726
  1531
* HOL and ZF: unary minus for integers is now #- instead of #~.  In
wenzelm@5726
  1532
ZF, expressions such as n#-1 must be changed to n#- 1, since #-1 is
wenzelm@5726
  1533
now taken as an integer constant.
paulson@5541
  1534
wenzelm@5726
  1535
* Pure: ML function 'theory_of' renamed to 'theory';
wenzelm@5397
  1536
wenzelm@5363
  1537
wenzelm@5127
  1538
*** Proof tools ***
nipkow@4880
  1539
nipkow@5657
  1540
* Simplifier:
nipkow@5657
  1541
  1. Asm_full_simp_tac is now more aggressive.
nipkow@5657
  1542
     1. It will sometimes reorient premises if that increases their power to
nipkow@5657
  1543
        simplify.
nipkow@5657
  1544
     2. It does no longer proceed strictly from left to right but may also
nipkow@5657
  1545
        rotate premises to achieve further simplification.
nipkow@5657
  1546
     For compatibility reasons there is now Asm_lr_simp_tac which is like the
nipkow@5657
  1547
     old Asm_full_simp_tac in that it does not rotate premises.
nipkow@5657
  1548
  2. The simplifier now knows a little bit about nat-arithmetic.
nipkow@4880
  1549
wenzelm@5127
  1550
* Classical reasoner: wrapper mechanism for the classical reasoner now
wenzelm@5127
  1551
allows for selected deletion of wrappers, by introduction of names for
wenzelm@5127
  1552
wrapper functionals.  This implies that addbefore, addSbefore,
wenzelm@5127
  1553
addaltern, and addSaltern now take a pair (name, tactic) as argument,
wenzelm@5127
  1554
and that adding two tactics with the same name overwrites the first
wenzelm@5127
  1555
one (emitting a warning).
oheimb@4824
  1556
  type wrapper = (int -> tactic) -> (int -> tactic)
oheimb@4649
  1557
  setWrapper, setSWrapper, compWrapper and compSWrapper are replaced by
oheimb@4824
  1558
  addWrapper, addSWrapper: claset * (string * wrapper) -> claset
oheimb@4824
  1559
  delWrapper, delSWrapper: claset *  string            -> claset
oheimb@4649
  1560
  getWrapper is renamed to appWrappers, getSWrapper to appSWrappers;
oheimb@4649
  1561
wenzelm@5705
  1562
* Classical reasoner: addbefore/addSbefore now have APPEND/ORELSE
wenzelm@5726
  1563
semantics; addbefore now affects only the unsafe part of step_tac
wenzelm@5726
  1564
etc.; this affects addss/auto_tac/force_tac, so EXISTING PROOFS MAY
wenzelm@5726
  1565
FAIL, but proofs should be fixable easily, e.g. by replacing Auto_tac
wenzelm@5726
  1566
by Force_tac;
oheimb@5524
  1567
wenzelm@5726
  1568
* Classical reasoner: setwrapper to setWrapper and compwrapper to
wenzelm@5726
  1569
compWrapper; added safe wrapper (and access functions for it);
oheimb@5524
  1570
wenzelm@5127
  1571
* HOL/split_all_tac is now much faster and fails if there is nothing
wenzelm@5726
  1572
to split.  Some EXISTING PROOFS MAY REQUIRE ADAPTION because the order
wenzelm@5726
  1573
and the names of the automatically generated variables have changed.
wenzelm@5726
  1574
split_all_tac has moved within claset() from unsafe wrappers to safe
wenzelm@5726
  1575
wrappers, which means that !!-bound variables are split much more
wenzelm@5726
  1576
aggressively, and safe_tac and clarify_tac now split such variables.
wenzelm@5726
  1577
If this splitting is not appropriate, use delSWrapper "split_all_tac".
wenzelm@5726
  1578
Note: the same holds for record_split_tac, which does the job of
wenzelm@5726
  1579
split_all_tac for record fields.
wenzelm@5127
  1580
wenzelm@5726
  1581
* HOL/Simplifier: Rewrite rules for case distinctions can now be added
wenzelm@5726
  1582
permanently to the default simpset using Addsplits just like
wenzelm@5726
  1583
Addsimps. They can be removed via Delsplits just like
wenzelm@5726
  1584
Delsimps. Lower-case versions are also available.
wenzelm@5127
  1585
wenzelm@5726
  1586
* HOL/Simplifier: The rule split_if is now part of the default
wenzelm@5726
  1587
simpset. This means that the simplifier will eliminate all occurrences
wenzelm@5726
  1588
of if-then-else in the conclusion of a goal. To prevent this, you can
wenzelm@5726
  1589
either remove split_if completely from the default simpset by
wenzelm@5726
  1590
`Delsplits [split_if]' or remove it in a specific call of the
wenzelm@5726
  1591
simplifier using `... delsplits [split_if]'.  You can also add/delete
wenzelm@5726
  1592
other case splitting rules to/from the default simpset: every datatype
wenzelm@5726
  1593
generates suitable rules `split_t_case' and `split_t_case_asm' (where
wenzelm@5726
  1594
t is the name of the datatype).
wenzelm@5127
  1595
wenzelm@5726
  1596
* Classical reasoner / Simplifier combination: new force_tac (and
wenzelm@5127
  1597
derivatives Force_tac, force) combines rewriting and classical
wenzelm@5127
  1598
reasoning (and whatever other tools) similarly to auto_tac, but is
wenzelm@5726
  1599
aimed to solve the given subgoal completely.
wenzelm@5127

wenzelm@5127
  1602
*** General ***
wenzelm@5127
  1603
wenzelm@5217
  1604
* new top-level commands `Goal' and `Goalw' that improve upon `goal'
wenzelm@5127
  1605
and `goalw': the theory is no longer needed as an explicit argument -
wenzelm@5127
  1606
the current theory context is used; assumptions are no longer returned
wenzelm@5127
  1607
at the ML-level unless one of them starts with ==> or !!; it is
wenzelm@5217
  1608
recommended to convert to these new commands using isatool fixgoal
wenzelm@5217
  1609
(backup your sources first!);
wenzelm@4842
  1610
wenzelm@5217
  1611
* new top-level commands 'thm' and 'thms' for retrieving theorems from
wenzelm@5207
  1612
the current theory context, and 'theory' to lookup stored theories;
paulson@4806
  1613
paulson@5722
  1614
* new theory section 'locale' for declaring constants, assumptions and
paulson@5722
  1615
definitions that have local scope;
paulson@5722
  1616
wenzelm@5127
  1617
* new theory section 'nonterminals' for purely syntactic types;
wenzelm@4858
  1618
wenzelm@5127
  1619
* new theory section 'setup' for generic ML setup functions
wenzelm@5127
  1620
(e.g. package initialization);
wenzelm@4869
  1621
wenzelm@5131
  1622
* the distribution now includes Isabelle icons: see
wenzelm@5131
  1623
lib/logo/isabelle-{small,tiny}.xpm;
wenzelm@5131
  1624
wenzelm@5363
  1625
* isatool install - install binaries with absolute references to
wenzelm@5363
  1626
ISABELLE_HOME/bin;
wenzelm@5363
  1627
wenzelm@5572
  1628
* isatool logo -- create instances of the Isabelle logo (as EPS);
wenzelm@5572
  1629
wenzelm@5407
  1630
* print mode 'emacs' reserved for Isamode;
wenzelm@5407
  1631
wenzelm@5726
  1632
* support multiple print (ast) translations per constant name;
wenzelm@5726
  1633
wenzelm@6925
  1634
* theorems involving oracles are now printed with a suffixed [!];
wenzelm@6925

  1636
paulson@4661
  1637
*** HOL ***
paulson@4661
  1638
wenzelm@5710
  1639
* there is now a tutorial on Isabelle/HOL (do 'isatool doc tutorial');
nipkow@5709
  1640
wenzelm@5217
  1641
* HOL/inductive package reorganized and improved: now supports mutual
paulson@5267
  1642
definitions such as
wenzelm@5217
  1643
wenzelm@5217
  1644
  inductive EVEN ODD
wenzelm@5217
  1645
    intrs
wenzelm@5217
  1646
      null "0 : EVEN"
wenzelm@5217

      oddI "n : EVEN ==> Suc n : ODD"
wenzelm@5217
  1648
      evenI "n : ODD ==> Suc n : EVEN"
wenzelm@5217
  1649
wenzelm@5217
  1650
new theorem list "elims" contains an elimination rule for each of the
wenzelm@5217
  1651
recursive sets; inductive definitions now handle disjunctive premises
wenzelm@5217
  1652
correctly (also ZF);
berghofe@5214
  1653
wenzelm@5217
  1654
INCOMPATIBILITIES: requires Inductive as an ancestor; component
wenzelm@5217
  1655
"mutual_induct" no longer exists - the induction rule is always
wenzelm@5217
  1656
contained in "induct";
wenzelm@5217
  1657
wenzelm@5217
  1658
wenzelm@5217
  1659
* HOL/datatype package re-implemented and greatly improved: now
paulson@5267
  1660
supports mutually recursive datatypes such as
wenzelm@5217
  1661
wenzelm@5217
  1662
  datatype
wenzelm@5217
  1663

The new tactic  mutual_induct_tac [<var_1>, ..., <var_n>] i  performs
wenzelm@5217
  1679
induction on mutually / indirectly recursive datatypes.
wenzelm@5217
  1680
wenzelm@5217
  1681
Primrec equations are now stored in theory and can be accessed via
wenzelm@5217
  1682
<function_name>.simps.
wenzelm@5217
  1683
wenzelm@5217
  1684
INCOMPATIBILITIES:
berghofe@5214
  1685
wenzelm@5217
  1686
  - Theories using datatypes must now have theory Datatype as an
wenzelm@5217
  1687
    ancestor.
wenzelm@5217
  1688
  - The specific <typename>.induct_tac no longer exists - use the
wenzelm@5217
  1689
    generic induct_tac instead.
berghofe@5226
  1690
  - natE has been renamed to nat.exhaust - use exhaust_tac
wenzelm@5217
  1691
    instead of res_inst_tac ... natE. Note that the variable
berghofe@5226
  1692
    names in nat.exhaust differ from the names in natE, this
wenzelm@5217
  1693
    may cause some "fragile" proofs to fail.
wenzelm@5217
  1694
  - The theorems split_<typename>_case and split_<typename>_case_asm
wenzelm@5217
  1695
    have been renamed to <typename>.split and <typename>.split_asm.
wenzelm@5217
  1696
  - Since default sorts of type variables are now handled correctly,
wenzelm@5217
  1697
    some datatype definitions may have to be annotated with explicit
wenzelm@5217
  1698
    sort constraints.
wenzelm@5217
  1699
  - Primrec definitions no longer require function name and type
wenzelm@5217
  1700
    of recursive argument.
berghofe@5214
  1701
wenzelm@5217
  1702
Consider using isatool fixdatatype to adapt your theories and proof
wenzelm@5217
  1703
scripts to the new package (backup your sources first!).
wenzelm@5217
  1704
wenzelm@5217
  1705
wenzelm@5726
  1706
* HOL/record package: considerably improved implementation; now
wenzelm@5726
  1707
includes concrete syntax for record types, terms, updates; theorems
wenzelm@5726
  1708
for surjective pairing and splitting !!-bound record variables; proof
wenzelm@5726
  1709
support is as follows:
wenzelm@5726
  1710
wenzelm@5726
  1711
  1) standard conversions (selectors or updates applied to record
wenzelm@5726
  1712
constructor terms) are part of the standard simpset;
wenzelm@5726
  1713
wenzelm@5726
  1714
  2) inject equations of the form ((x, y) = (x', y')) == x=x' & y=y' are
wenzelm@5726
  1715
made part of standard simpset and claset via addIffs;
wenzelm@5726
  1716
wenzelm@5726
  1717
  3) a tactic for record field splitting (record_split_tac) is part of
wenzelm@5726
  1718
the standard claset (addSWrapper);
wenzelm@5726
  1719
wenzelm@5726
  1720
To get a better idea about these rules you may retrieve them via
wenzelm@5726
  1721
something like 'thms "foo.simps"' or 'thms "foo.iffs"', where "foo" is
wenzelm@5726
  1722
the name of your record type.
wenzelm@5726
  1723
wenzelm@5726
  1724
The split tactic 3) conceptually simplifies by the following rule:
wenzelm@5726
  1725
wenzelm@5726
  1726
  "(!!x. PROP ?P x) == (!!a b. PROP ?P (a, b))"
wenzelm@5726
  1727
wenzelm@5726
  1728
Thus any record variable that is bound by meta-all will automatically
wenzelm@5726
  1729
blow up into some record constructor term, consequently the
wenzelm@5726
  1730
simplifications of 1), 2) apply.  Thus force_tac, auto_tac etc. shall
wenzelm@5726
  1731
solve record problems automatically.
wenzelm@5726
  1732
berghofe@5214
  1733
wenzelm@5125
  1734
* reorganized the main HOL image: HOL/Integ and String loaded by
wenzelm@5125
  1735
default; theory Main includes everything;
wenzelm@5125
  1736
paulson@5650
  1737
* automatic simplification of integer sums and comparisons, using cancellation;
paulson@5650
  1738
oheimb@5526
  1739
* added option_map_eq_Some and not_Some_eq to the default simpset and claset;
wenzelm@5127
  1740
wenzelm@5127
  1741
* added disj_not1 = "(~P | Q) = (P --> Q)" to the default simpset;
wenzelm@5127
  1742
wenzelm@5127
  1743
* many new identities for unions, intersections, set difference, etc.;
wenzelm@5127
  1744
wenzelm@5127
  1745
* expand_if, expand_split, expand_sum_case and expand_nat_case are now
wenzelm@5127
  1746
called split_if, split_split, split_sum_case and split_nat_case (to go
wenzelm@5127
  1747
with add/delsplits);
wenzelm@5125
  1748
wenzelm@5127
  1749
* HOL/Prod introduces simplification procedure unit_eq_proc rewriting
wenzelm@5127
  1750
(?x::unit) = (); this is made part of the default simpset, which COULD
wenzelm@5127
  1751
MAKE EXISTING PROOFS FAIL under rare circumstances (consider
wenzelm@5207
  1752
'Delsimprocs [unit_eq_proc];' as last resort); also note that
wenzelm@5207
  1753
unit_abs_eta_conv is added in order to counter the effect of
wenzelm@5207
  1754
unit_eq_proc on (%u::unit. f u), replacing it by f rather than by
wenzelm@5207
  1755
%u.f();
wenzelm@5125
  1756
wenzelm@5217
  1757
* HOL/Fun INCOMPATIBILITY: `inj_onto' is now called `inj_on' (which
wenzelm@5217
  1758
makes more sense);
berghofe@5109
  1759
paulson@5475
  1760
* HOL/Set INCOMPATIBILITY: rule `equals0D' is now a well-formed destruct rule;
paulson@5475
  1761
  It and 'sym RS equals0D' are now in the default  claset, giving automatic
paulson@5475
  1762
  disjointness reasoning but breaking a few old proofs.
paulson@5267
  1763
wenzelm@5217
  1764
* HOL/Relation INCOMPATIBILITY: renamed the relational operator r^-1
wenzelm@5217
  1765
to 'converse' from 'inverse' (for compatibility with ZF and some
wenzelm@5217
  1766
literature);
wenzelm@5085
  1767
wenzelm@5127
  1768
* HOL/recdef can now declare non-recursive functions, with {} supplied as
wenzelm@5127
  1769
the well-founded relation;
oheimb@4838
  1770
paulson@5490
  1771
* HOL/Set INCOMPATIBILITY: the complement of set A is now written -A instead of
paulson@5490
  1772
    Compl A.  The "Compl" syntax remains available as input syntax for this
paulson@5490
  1773
    release ONLY.
paulson@5490
  1774
wenzelm@5127
  1775
* HOL/Update: new theory of function updates:
wenzelm@5127
  1776
    f(a:=b) == %x. if x=a then b else f x
wenzelm@5127
  1777
may also be iterated as in f(a:=b,c:=d,...);
nipkow@5077
  1778
wenzelm@5127
  1779
* HOL/Vimage: new theory for inverse image of a function, syntax f-``B;
paulson@4899
  1780
nipkow@5282
  1781
* HOL/List:
nipkow@5282
  1782
  - new function list_update written xs[i:=v] that updates the i-th
nipkow@5282
  1783
    list position. May also be iterated as in xs[i:=a,j:=b,...].
nipkow@5428
  1784
  - new function `upt' written [i..j(] which generates the list
nipkow@5428
  1785
    [i,i+1,...,j-1], i.e. the upper bound is excluded. To include the upper
nipkow@5428
  1786
    bound write [i..j], which is a shorthand for [i..j+1(].
nipkow@5282
  1787
  - new lexicographic orderings and corresponding wellfoundedness theorems.
paulson@4779
  1788
wenzelm@5127
  1789
* HOL/Arith:
wenzelm@5127
  1790
  - removed 'pred' (predecessor) function;
wenzelm@5127
  1791
  - generalized some theorems about n-1;
wenzelm@5127
  1792
  - many new laws about "div" and "mod";
wenzelm@5127
  1793
  - new laws about greatest common divisors (see theory ex/Primes);
oheimb@4766
  1794
wenzelm@5127
  1795
* HOL/Relation: renamed the relational operator r^-1 "converse"
wenzelm@4842
  1796
instead of "inverse";
wenzelm@4711
  1797
nipkow@5651
  1798
* HOL/Induct/Multiset: a theory of multisets, including the wellfoundedness
nipkow@5651
  1799
  of the multiset ordering;
nipkow@5651
  1800
wenzelm@5127
  1801
* directory HOL/Real: a construction of the reals using Dedekind cuts
nipkow@5651
  1802
  (not included by default);
nipkow@4835
  1803
wenzelm@5127
  1804
* directory HOL/UNITY: Chandy and Misra's UNITY formalism;
wenzelm@4711
  1805
nipkow@5651
  1806
* directory HOL/Hoare: a new version of Hoare logic which permits many-sorted
nipkow@5651
  1807
  programs, i.e. different program variables may have different types.
nipkow@5651
  1808
paulson@5142
  1809
* calling (stac rew i) now fails if "rew" has no effect on the goal
paulson@5142
  1810
  [previously, this check worked only if the rewrite rule was unconditional]
paulson@5308
  1811
  Now rew can involve either definitions or equalities (either == or =).
wenzelm@5002

paulson@4879
  1814
*** ZF ***
paulson@4879
  1815
paulson@5332
  1816
* theory Main includes everything; INCOMPATIBILITY: theory ZF.thy contains
paulson@5332
  1817
  only the theorems proved on ZF.ML;
paulson@5160
  1818
paulson@5475
  1819
* ZF INCOMPATIBILITY: rule `equals0D' is now a well-formed destruct rule;
paulson@5475
  1820
  It and 'sym RS equals0D' are now in the default  claset, giving automatic
paulson@5475
  1821
  disjointness reasoning but breaking a few old proofs.
paulson@5267
  1822
paulson@5160
  1823
* ZF/Update: new theory of function updates
paulson@5160
  1824
    with default rewrite rule  f(x:=y) ` z = if(z=x, y, f`z)
paulson@5160
  1825
  may also be iterated as in f(a:=b,c:=d,...);
paulson@5160
  1826
paulson@4879
  1827
* in  let x=t in u(x), neither t nor u(x) has to be an FOL term.
oheimb@4649
  1828
paulson@5142
  1829
* calling (stac rew i) now fails if "rew" has no effect on the goal
paulson@5142
  1830
  [previously, this check worked only if the rewrite rule was unconditional]
paulson@5308
  1831
  Now rew can involve either definitions or equalities (either == or =).
paulson@5142
  1832
paulson@5160
  1833
* case_tac provided for compatibility with HOL
paulson@5160
  1834
    (like the old excluded_middle_tac, but with subgoals swapped)
paulson@5160

wenzelm@5127
  1837
*** Internal programming interfaces ***
wenzelm@5002
  1838
wenzelm@5251
  1839
* Pure: several new basic modules made available for general use, see
wenzelm@5251
  1840
also src/Pure/README;
wenzelm@5207
  1841
wenzelm@5008
  1842
* improved the theory data mechanism to support encapsulation (data
wenzelm@5008
  1843
kind name replaced by private Object.kind, acting as authorization
wenzelm@5373
  1844
key); new type-safe user interface via functor TheoryDataFun; generic
wenzelm@5373
  1845
print_data function becomes basically useless;
wenzelm@5002
  1846
wenzelm@5251
  1847
* removed global_names compatibility flag -- all theory declarations
wenzelm@5251
  1848
are qualified by default;
wenzelm@5251
  1849
wenzelm@5085
  1850
* module Pure/Syntax now offers quote / antiquote translation
wenzelm@5085
  1851
functions (useful for Hoare logic etc. with implicit dependencies);
wenzelm@5373
  1852
see HOL/ex/Antiquote for an example use;
wenzelm@5085
  1853
wenzelm@5127
  1854
* Simplifier now offers conversions (asm_)(full_)rewrite: simpset ->
wenzelm@5127
  1855
cterm -> thm;
wenzelm@5127
  1856
wenzelm@5207
  1857
* new tactical CHANGED_GOAL for checking that a tactic modifies a
wenzelm@5207
  1858
subgoal;
paulson@5142
  1859
wenzelm@5251
  1860
* Display.print_goals function moved to Locale.print_goals;
wenzelm@5251
  1861
wenzelm@5731
  1862
* standard print function for goals supports current_goals_markers
wenzelm@5731
  1863
variable for marking begin of proof, end of proof, start of goal; the
wenzelm@5731
  1864
default is ("", "", ""); setting current_goals_markers := ("<proof>",
wenzelm@5731
  1865
"</proof>", "<goal>") causes SGML like tagged proof state printing,

  1873
*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES (see below for more details) ***
wenzelm@4410
  1874
wenzelm@4410
  1875
* changed lexical syntax of terms / types: dots made part of long
wenzelm@4410
  1876
identifiers, e.g. "%x.x" no longer possible, should be "%x. x";
wenzelm@4410
  1877
wenzelm@4410
  1878
* simpset (and claset) reference variable replaced by functions
wenzelm@4410
  1879
simpset / simpset_ref;
wenzelm@4410
  1880
wenzelm@4410
  1881
* no longer supports theory aliases (via merge) and non-trivial
wenzelm@4410
  1882
implicit merge of thms' signatures;
wenzelm@4410
  1883
wenzelm@4410
  1884
* most internal names of constants changed due to qualified names;
wenzelm@4410
  1885
wenzelm@4410
  1886
* changed Pure/Sequence interface (see Pure/seq.ML);
wenzelm@4410
  1887
wenzelm@3454
  1888
paulson@3715
  1889
*** General Changes ***
paulson@3715
  1890
wenzelm@4174
  1891
* hierachically structured name spaces (for consts, types, axms, thms
wenzelm@3943
  1892
etc.); new lexical class 'longid' (e.g. Foo.bar.x) may render much of
wenzelm@4108
  1893
old input syntactically incorrect (e.g. "%x.x"); COMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@4108
  1894
isatool fixdots ensures space after dots (e.g. "%x. x"); set
wenzelm@4174
  1895
long_names for fully qualified output names; NOTE: ML programs
wenzelm@4174
  1896
(special tactics, packages etc.) referring to internal names may have
wenzelm@4174
  1897
to be adapted to cope with fully qualified names; in case of severe
wenzelm@4174
  1898
backward campatibility problems try setting 'global_names' at compile
wenzelm@4174
  1899
time to have enrything declared within a flat name space; one may also
wenzelm@4174
  1900
fine tune name declarations in theories via the 'global' and 'local'
wenzelm@4174
  1901
section;
wenzelm@4108
  1902
wenzelm@4108
  1903
* reimplemented the implicit simpset and claset using the new anytype
wenzelm@4108
  1904
data filed in signatures; references simpset:simpset ref etc. are
wenzelm@4108
  1905
replaced by functions simpset:unit->simpset and
wenzelm@4108
  1906
simpset_ref:unit->simpset ref; COMPATIBILITY: use isatool fixclasimp
wenzelm@4108
  1907
to patch your ML files accordingly;
paulson@3856
  1908
wenzelm@3857
  1909
* HTML output now includes theory graph data for display with Java
wenzelm@3857
  1910
applet or isatool browser; data generated automatically via isatool
wenzelm@3901
  1911
usedir (see -i option, ISABELLE_USEDIR_OPTIONS);
wenzelm@3857
  1912
paulson@3856
  1913
* defs may now be conditional; improved rewrite_goals_tac to handle
paulson@3856
  1914
conditional equations;
paulson@3856
  1915
wenzelm@4174
  1916
* defs now admits additional type arguments, using TYPE('a) syntax;
wenzelm@4174
  1917
wenzelm@3901
  1918
* theory aliases via merge (e.g. M=A+B+C) no longer supported, always
wenzelm@3901
  1919
creates a new theory node; implicit merge of thms' signatures is
wenzelm@4112
  1920
restricted to 'trivial' ones; COMPATIBILITY: one may have to use
wenzelm@3901
  1921
transfer:theory->thm->thm in (rare) cases;
wenzelm@3901
  1922
wenzelm@3968
  1923
* improved handling of draft signatures / theories; draft thms (and
wenzelm@3968
  1924
ctyps, cterms) are automatically promoted to real ones;
wenzelm@3968
  1925
wenzelm@3901
  1926
* slightly changed interfaces for oracles: admit many per theory, named
wenzelm@3901
  1927
(e.g. oracle foo = mlfun), additional name argument for invoke_oracle;
wenzelm@3901
  1928
wenzelm@3901
  1929
* print_goals: optional output of const types (set show_consts and
wenzelm@3901
  1930
show_types);
wenzelm@3851
  1931
wenzelm@4388
  1932
* improved output of warnings (###) and errors (***);
wenzelm@3697
  1933
paulson@4178
  1934
* subgoal_tac displays a warning if the new subgoal has type variables;
paulson@4178
  1935
paulson@3715
  1936
* removed old README and Makefiles;
wenzelm@3697
  1937
paulson@3856
  1938
* replaced print_goals_ref hook by print_current_goals_fn and result_error_fn;
wenzelm@3670
  1939
paulson@3715
  1940
* removed obsolete init_pps and init_database;
paulson@3715
  1941
paulson@3715
  1942
* deleted the obsolete tactical STATE, which was declared by
paulson@3715
  1943
    fun STATE tacfun st = tacfun st st;
paulson@3715
  1944
wenzelm@4388
  1945
* cd and use now support path variables, e.g. $ISABELLE_HOME, or ~
wenzelm@4388
  1946
(which abbreviates $HOME);
wenzelm@4269
  1947
wenzelm@4269
  1948
* changed Pure/Sequence interface (see Pure/seq.ML); COMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@4269
  1949
use isatool fixseq to adapt your ML programs (this works for fully
wenzelm@4269
  1950

paulson@3715
  1957
wenzelm@3744
  1958
* Clarify_tac, clarify_tac, clarify_step_tac, Clarify_step_tac: new
wenzelm@3744
  1959
tactics that use classical reasoning to simplify a subgoal without
wenzelm@3744
  1960
splitting it into several subgoals;
paulson@3715

*** Simplifier ***
paulson@3715
  1966
paulson@3715
  1967
* added simplification meta rules:
paulson@3715
  1968
    (asm_)(full_)simplify: simpset -> thm -> thm;
paulson@3715
  1969
paulson@3715

paulson@3715
  1971
logics (again);
paulson@3715
  1972
paulson@3715
  1973
* added prems argument to simplification procedures;
paulson@3715
  1974
paulson@4325
  1975
* HOL, FOL, ZF: added infix function `addsplits':
paulson@4325
  1976
  instead of `<simpset> setloop (split_tac <thms>)'
paulson@4325
  1977
  you can simply write `<simpset> addsplits <thms>'

*** HOL ***
paulson@3715
  1992
wenzelm@5726
  1993
* HOL: there is a new splitter `split_asm_tac' that can be used e.g.
oheimb@4189
  1994
  with `addloop' of the simplifier to faciliate case splitting in premises.

wenzelm@4335
  2006
cancelling common factor from =, <, <= (in)equalities over natural
wenzelm@4373

* HOL/Arithmetic:
nipkow@4361
  2040
  - `pred n' is automatically converted to `n-1'.
nipkow@4361
  2041
    Users are strongly encouraged not to use `pred' any longer,
nipkow@4361
  2042
    because it will disappear altogether at some point.
nipkow@4361
  2043
  - Users are strongly encouraged to write "0 < n" rather than
nipkow@4361
  2044
    "n ~= 0". Theorems and proof tools have been modified towards this
nipkow@4361
  2045
    `standard'.
nipkow@4357
  2046
nipkow@4502
  2047
* HOL/Lists:
nipkow@4502
  2048
  the function "set_of_list" has been renamed "set" (and its theorems too);
nipkow@4502
  2049
  the function "nth" now takes its arguments in the reverse order and
nipkow@4502
  2050
  has acquired the infix notation "!" as in "xs!n".
paulson@3570

* HOL/Set: UNIV is now a constant and is no longer translated to Compl{};
paulson@4154
  2053
paulson@4154
  2054
* HOL/Set: The operator (UN x.B x) now abbreviates (UN x:UNIV. B x) and its
paulson@4154
  2055
  specialist theorems (like UN1_I) are gone.  Similarly for (INT x.B x);
paulson@4154
  2056
wenzelm@4575

* HOL/record: extensible records with schematic structural subtyping
wenzelm@4575
  2058

*** HOLCF ***
wenzelm@3535

* removed "axioms" and "generated by" sections;
wenzelm@4125
  2065
oheimb@4123
  2066
* replaced "ops" section by extended "consts" section, which is capable of
wenzelm@4125
  2067
  handling the continuous function space "->" directly;
wenzelm@4125
  2068

* domain package:
wenzelm@4125
  2070
  . proves theorems immediately and stores them in the theory,
wenzelm@4125
  2071
  . creates hierachical name space,
wenzelm@4125
  2072
  . now uses normal mixfix annotations (instead of cinfix...),
wenzelm@4125
  2073
  . minor changes to some names and values (for consistency),
wenzelm@4125
  2074
  . e.g. cases -> casedist, dists_eq -> dist_eqs, [take_lemma] -> take_lemmas,
wenzelm@4125
  2075
  . separator between mutual domain defs: changed "," to "and",
wenzelm@4125
  2076
  . improved handling of sort constraints;  now they have to
wenzelm@4125
  2077
    appear on the left-hand side of the equations only;
oheimb@4123
  2078
oheimb@4123
  2079
* fixed LAM <x,y,zs>.b syntax;
wenzelm@3567
  2080
wenzelm@3744
  2081

paulson@3002
  2098
*** General Changes ***
paulson@3002
  2099
paulson@3002
  2100
* new utilities to build / run / maintain Isabelle etc. (in parts
paulson@3002
  2101
still somewhat experimental); old Makefiles etc. still functional;
wenzelm@2971
  2102
wenzelm@3205
  2103
* new 'Isabelle System Manual';
wenzelm@3205
  2104
wenzelm@2825
  2105
* INSTALL text, together with ./configure and ./build scripts;
wenzelm@2773
  2106
wenzelm@3006
  2107
* reimplemented type inference for greater efficiency, better error
wenzelm@3006
  2108
messages and clean internal interface;
paulson@3002
  2109
paulson@3002
  2110
* prlim command for dealing with lots of subgoals (an easier way of
paulson@3002
  2111
setting goals_limit);
paulson@3002
  2112
wenzelm@3006
  2113
wenzelm@3006
  2114
*** Syntax ***
paulson@3002
  2115
wenzelm@3116
  2116
* supports alternative (named) syntax tables (parser and pretty
wenzelm@3116
  2117
printer); internal interface is provided by add_modesyntax(_i);
wenzelm@3116
  2118
paulson@3002
  2119
* Pure, FOL, ZF, HOL, HOLCF now support symbolic input and output; to
paulson@3002
  2120
be used in conjunction with the Isabelle symbol font; uses the
paulson@3002
  2121
"symbols" syntax table;
paulson@3002
  2122
wenzelm@2705
  2123
* added token_translation interface (may translate name tokens in
wenzelm@2756
  2124
arbitrary ways, dependent on their type (free, bound, tfree, ...) and
wenzelm@3116
  2125
the current print_mode); IMPORTANT: user print translation functions
wenzelm@3116
  2126
are responsible for marking newly introduced bounds
wenzelm@3116
  2127
(Syntax.mark_boundT);
wenzelm@2705
  2128
wenzelm@2730
  2129
* token translations for modes "xterm" and "xterm_color" that display
wenzelm@3006
  2130
names in bold, underline etc. or colors (which requires a color
wenzelm@3006
  2131
version of xterm);
wenzelm@2730
  2132
paulson@3002
  2133
* infixes may now be declared with names independent of their syntax;
paulson@3002
  2134
paulson@3002
  2135
* added typed_print_translation (like print_translation, but may
paulson@3002
  2136
access type of constant);

paulson@3002
  2141
Blast_tac: a new tactic!  It is often more powerful than fast_tac, but has
paulson@3002
  2142
some limitations.  Blast_tac...
paulson@3002
  2143
  + ignores addss, addbefore, addafter; this restriction is intrinsic
paulson@3002
  2144
  + ignores elimination rules that don't have the correct format
wenzelm@5726
  2145
        (the conclusion MUST be a formula variable)
paulson@3002
  2146
  + ignores types, which can make HOL proofs fail
paulson@3002
  2147
  + rules must not require higher-order unification, e.g. apply_type in ZF
paulson@3002
  2148
    [message "Function Var's argument not a bound variable" relates to this]
paulson@3002
  2149
  + its proof strategy is more general but can actually be slower
paulson@3002
  2150
wenzelm@3107
  2151
* substitution with equality assumptions no longer permutes other
wenzelm@3107
  2152
assumptions;
paulson@3002
  2153
paulson@3002
  2154
* minor changes in semantics of addafter (now called addaltern); renamed
paulson@3002
  2155
setwrapper to setWrapper and compwrapper to compWrapper; added safe wrapper
wenzelm@3107
  2156
(and access functions for it);
paulson@3002
  2157
wenzelm@5726
  2158
* improved combination of classical reasoner and simplifier:
oheimb@3317
  2159
  + functions for handling clasimpsets
oheimb@3317
  2160
  + improvement of addss: now the simplifier is called _after_ the
oheimb@3317
  2161
    safe steps.
oheimb@3317
  2162
  + safe variant of addss called addSss: uses safe simplifications
wenzelm@5726
  2163
    _during_ the safe steps. It is more complete as it allows multiple
oheimb@3317
  2164
    instantiations of unknowns (e.g. with slow_tac).
wenzelm@3006

paulson@3002
  2166
*** Simplifier ***
paulson@3002
  2167
wenzelm@3006
  2168
* added interface for simplification procedures (functions that
wenzelm@3006
  2169
produce *proven* rewrite rules on the fly, depending on current
wenzelm@3006
  2170
redex);
wenzelm@3006
  2171
wenzelm@3006
  2172
* ordering on terms as parameter (used for ordered rewriting);
wenzelm@3006
  2173
wenzelm@3107
  2174
* new functions delcongs, deleqcongs, and Delcongs. richer rep_ss;
paulson@3002
  2175
paulson@3002
  2176
* the solver is now split into a safe and an unsafe part.
paulson@3002
  2177
This should be invisible for the normal user, except that the
paulson@3002
  2178
functions setsolver and addsolver have been renamed to setSolver and
wenzelm@3107
  2179
addSolver; added safe_asm_full_simp_tac;

paulson@3002
  2182
*** HOL ***
paulson@3002
  2183
nipkow@3042
  2184

wenzelm@3107
  2185
also for type `nat';
nipkow@3042
  2186
nipkow@3316
  2187

nipkow@3316
  2191
paulson@3002
  2192
* patterns in case expressions allow tuple patterns as arguments to
wenzelm@3107

constructors, for example `case x of [] => ... | (x,y,z)#ps => ...';
paulson@3002
  2194
paulson@3002
  2195
* primrec now also works with type nat;
paulson@3002
  2196
paulson@3338
  2197
* recdef: a new declaration form, allows general recursive functions to be
paulson@3338
  2198
defined in theory files.  See HOL/ex/Fib, HOL/ex/Primes, HOL/Subst/Unify.
paulson@3338
  2199
paulson@3002
  2200
* the constant for negation has been renamed from "not" to "Not" to

paulson@3002
  2202
wenzelm@3107

  2209
problems in commutative rings, using axiomatic type classes for + and *;
paulson@3002
  2210
paulson@3002
  2211
* more examples in HOL/MiniML and HOL/Auth;
paulson@3002

  2213
* more default rewrite rules for quantifiers, union/intersection;
paulson@3002

  2215
* a new constant `arbitrary == @x.False';
nipkow@3321

  2217
* HOLCF/IOA replaces old HOL/IOA;
wenzelm@3107

* HOLCF changes: derived all rules and arities
wenzelm@5726

  + axiomatic type classes instead of classes
slotosch@2653
  2221
  + typedef instead of faking type definitions
paulson@2747
  2222
  + eliminated the internal constants less_fun, less_cfun, UU_fun, UU_cfun etc.
wenzelm@2730
  2223
  + new axclasses cpo, chfin, flat with flat < chfin < pcpo < cpo < po
slotosch@2653

* super-linear speedup for large simplifications;
wenzelm@2554
  2244
wenzelm@2554
  2245
* FOL, ZF and HOL now use miniscoping: rewriting pushes
wenzelm@2554

quantifications in as far as possible (COULD MAKE EXISTING PROOFS
wenzelm@2554
  2247
FAIL); can suppress it using the command Delsimps (ex_simps @
wenzelm@2554
  2248
all_simps); De Morgan laws are also now included, by default;
wenzelm@2554

  2251
wenzelm@2554
  2252
* new object-logic "Sequents" adds linear logic, while replacing LK
wenzelm@2554
  2253
and Modal (thanks to Sara Kalvala);
wenzelm@2554
  2254
wenzelm@2554
  2255
* HOL/Auth: correctness proofs for authentication protocols;
wenzelm@2554
  2256
wenzelm@2554
  2257
* HOL: new auto_tac combines rewriting and classical reasoning (many
wenzelm@2554
  2258
examples on HOL/Auth);
wenzelm@2554
  2259
wenzelm@2554
  2260
* HOL: new command AddIffs for declaring theorems of the form P=Q to
wenzelm@2554
  2261
the rewriter and classical reasoner simultaneously;
wenzelm@2554
  2262
wenzelm@2554

* oracles -- these establish an interface between Isabelle and trusted
wenzelm@2554
  2272
external reasoners, which may deliver results as theorems;
wenzelm@2554
  2273
wenzelm@2554
  2274
* proof objects (in particular record all uses of oracles);
wenzelm@2554
  2275
wenzelm@2554
  2276
* Simp_tac, Fast_tac, etc. that refer to implicit simpset / claset;
wenzelm@2554
  2277
wenzelm@2554
  2278
* "constdefs" section in theory files;
wenzelm@2554

  2302
-------------------
paulson@2557
  2303
paulson@2747
  2304
* greatly reduced space requirements;
paulson@2557
  2305
paulson@2557
  2306
* theory files (.thy) no longer require \...\ escapes at line breaks;
paulson@2557
  2307
wenzelm@5726
  2308
* searchable theorem database (see the section "Retrieving theorems" on
paulson@2557
  2309
page 8 of the Reference Manual);
paulson@2557
  2310
paulson@2557
  2311
* new examples, including Grabczewski's monumental case study of the
paulson@2557
  2312
Axiom of Choice;
paulson@2557
  2313
paulson@2557
  2314
* The previous version of HOL renamed to Old_HOL;
paulson@2557
  2315
wenzelm@5726
  2316
* The new version of HOL (previously called CHOL) uses a curried syntax
paulson@2557
  2317
for functions.  Application looks like f a b instead of f(a,b);
paulson@2557
  2318
paulson@2557
  2319
* Mutually recursive inductive definitions finally work in HOL;
paulson@2557
  2320
paulson@2557
  2321
* In ZF, pattern-matching on tuples is now available in all abstractions and
paulson@2557
  2322
translates to the operator "split";

-------------------
paulson@2557
  2328
wenzelm@5726
  2329
* new infix operator, addss, allowing the classical reasoner to
paulson@2557
  2330
perform simplification at each step of its search.  Example:
wenzelm@5726
  2331
        fast_tac (cs addss ss)
paulson@2557
  2332
wenzelm@5726
  2333
* a new logic, CHOL, the same as HOL, but with a curried syntax
wenzelm@5726
  2334
for functions.  Application looks like f a b instead of f(a,b).  Also pairs
paulson@2557
  2335
look like (a,b) instead of <a,b>;
paulson@2557
  2336
paulson@2557
  2337
* PLEASE NOTE: CHOL will eventually replace HOL!
paulson@2557
  2338
paulson@2557
  2339
* In CHOL, pattern-matching on tuples is now available in all abstractions.
paulson@2557
  2340
It translates to the operator "split".  A new theory of integers is available;
paulson@2557
  2341
paulson@2557
  2342
* In ZF, integer numerals now denote two's-complement binary integers.
paulson@2557
  2343
Arithmetic operations can be performed by rewriting.  See ZF/ex/Bin.ML;
paulson@2557
  2344
wenzelm@5726
  2345
* Many new examples: I/O automata, Church-Rosser theorem, equivalents
paulson@2557
  2346
of the Axiom of Choice;

  2353
* Significantly faster resolution;
paulson@2557
  2354
paulson@2557
  2355
* the different sections in a .thy file can now be mixed and repeated
paulson@2557
  2356
freely;
paulson@2557
  2357
paulson@2557
  2358
* Database of theorems for FOL, HOL and ZF.  New
paulson@2557
  2359
commands including qed, qed_goal and bind_thm store theorems in the database.
paulson@2557
  2360
paulson@2557
  2361
* Simple database queries: return a named theorem (get_thm) or all theorems of
paulson@2557
  2362
a given theory (thms_of), or find out what theory a theorem was proved in
paulson@2557
  2363
(theory_of_thm);
paulson@2557
  2364
paulson@2557
  2365
* Bugs fixed in the inductive definition and datatype packages;
paulson@2557
  2366
paulson@2557
  2367
* The classical reasoner provides deepen_tac and depth_tac, making FOL_dup_cs
paulson@2557
  2368
and HOL_dup_cs obsolete;
paulson@2557
  2369
paulson@2557
  2370
* Syntactic ambiguities caused by the new treatment of syntax in Isabelle94-1
paulson@2557
  2371
have been removed;
paulson@2557
  2372
paulson@2557
  2373
* Simpler definition of function space in ZF;
paulson@2557
  2374

  2375
* new results about cardinal and ordinal arithmetic in ZF;
paulson@2557
  2376
