*** General ***
wenzelm@27599
     8
wenzelm@27599
     9
* Generalized Isar history, with support for linear undo, direct state
wenzelm@27599
    10
addressing etc.
haftmann@27104
    11
wenzelm@27191
    12
* Recovered hiding of consts, which was accidentally broken in
wenzelm@27191
    13
Isabelle2007.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY, ``hide const c'' really
wenzelm@27191
    14
makes c inaccessible; consider using ``hide (open) const c'' instead.
wenzelm@27191
    15
wenzelm@27599
    16
* Removed exotic 'token_translation' command.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use ML
wenzelm@27599
    17
interface instead.
wenzelm@27599

wenzelm@27599
    20
*** Pure ***
wenzelm@27599
    21
wenzelm@28178
    22
* Changed defaults for unify configuration options:
wenzelm@28178
    23
wenzelm@28178
    24
  unify_trace_bound = 50 (formerly 25)
wenzelm@28178
    25
  unify_search_bound = 60 (formerly 30)
wenzelm@28178
    26
haftmann@28143
    27
* Different bookkeeping for code equations:
haftmann@28143
    28
  a) On theory merge, the last set of code equations for a particular constant
haftmann@28143
    29
     is taken (in accordance with the policy applied by other parts of the
haftmann@28143
    30
     code generator framework).
haftmann@28143
    31
  b) Code equations stemming from explicit declarations (e.g. code attribute)
haftmann@28143
    32
     gain priority over default code equations stemming from definition, primrec,
haftmann@28143
    33
     fun etc.
haftmann@28143
    34
  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@28143
    35
haftmann@28058
    36
* Global versions of theorems stemming from classes do not carry
haftmann@28058
    37
a parameter prefix any longer.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@28058
    38
ballarin@27761
    39
* Dropped "locale (open)".  INCOMPATBILITY.
ballarin@27761
    40
ballarin@28085
    41
* Interpretation commands no longer attempt to simplify goal.
ballarin@27761
    42
INCOMPATIBILITY: in rare situations the generated goal differs.  Use
ballarin@27761
    43
methods intro_locales and unfold_locales to clarify.
haftmann@27681
    44
ballarin@28085
    45
* Interpretation commands no longer accept interpretation attributes.
ballarin@28085
    46
INCOMPATBILITY.
ballarin@28085
    47
haftmann@27651
    48
* Command 'instance': attached definitions no longer accepted.
wenzelm@27141
    49
INCOMPATIBILITY, use proper 'instantiation' target.
haftmann@27104
    50
haftmann@27104
    51
* Keyword 'code_exception' now named 'code_abort'.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@27104
    52
wenzelm@28114
    53
* The 'axiomatization' command now only works within a global theory
wenzelm@28114
    54
context.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@28114
    55
haftmann@27104
    56
wenzelm@27381
    57
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@27381
    58
wenzelm@27381
    59
* Antiquotation @{lemma} now imitates a regular terminal proof,
wenzelm@27392
    60
demanding keyword 'by' and supporting the full method expression
wenzelm@27519
    61
syntax just like the Isar command 'by'.
wenzelm@27381
    62
wenzelm@27381
    63
haftmann@27104
    64
*** HOL ***
haftmann@27104
    65
wenzelm@28248
    66
* HOL/Main: command "value" now integrates different evaluation
wenzelm@28248
    67
mechanisms.  The result of the first successful evaluation mechanism
wenzelm@28248
    68
is printed.  In square brackets a particular named evaluation
wenzelm@28248
    69
mechanisms may be specified (currently, [SML], [code] or [nbe]).  See
wenzelm@28248
    70
further src/HOL/ex/Eval_Examples.thy.
haftmann@28227
    71
wenzelm@28088
    72
* HOL/Orderings: class "wellorder" moved here, with explicit induction
wenzelm@28088
    73
rule "less_induct" as assumption.  For instantiation of "wellorder" by
wenzelm@28088
    74
means of predicate "wf", use rule wf_wellorderI.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@27823
    75
wenzelm@27793
    76
* HOL/Orderings: added class "preorder" as superclass of "order".
wenzelm@27793
    77
INCOMPATIBILITY: Instantiation proofs for order, linorder
wenzelm@27793
    78
etc. slightly changed.  Some theorems named order_class.* now named
wenzelm@27793
    79
preorder_class.*.
wenzelm@27793
    80
wenzelm@27793
    81
* HOL/Ring_and_Field and HOL/Divides: Definition of "op dvd" has been
wenzelm@27793
    82
moved to separate class dvd in Ring_and_Field; a couple of lemmas on
wenzelm@27793
    83
dvd has been generalized to class comm_semiring_1.  Likewise a bunch
wenzelm@27793
    84
of lemmas from Divides has been generalized from nat to class
wenzelm@27793
    85
semiring_div.  INCOMPATIBILITY.  This involves the following theorem
wenzelm@27793
    86
renames resulting from duplicate elimination:
haftmann@27651
    87
haftmann@27651
    88
    dvd_def_mod ~>          dvd_eq_mod_eq_0
haftmann@27651
    89
    zero_dvd_iff ~>         dvd_0_left_iff
haftmann@27651
    90
    DIVISION_BY_ZERO_DIV ~> div_by_0
haftmann@27651
    91
    DIVISION_BY_ZERO_MOD ~> mod_by_0
haftmann@27651
    92
    mult_div ~>             div_mult_self2_is_id
haftmann@27651
    93
    mult_mod ~>             mod_mult_self2_is_0
haftmann@27651
    94
wenzelm@27599
    95
* HOL/Library/GCD: Curried operations gcd, lcm (for nat) and zgcd,
wenzelm@27599
    96
zlcm (for int); carried together from various gcd/lcm developements in
wenzelm@27599
    97
the HOL Distribution.  zgcd and zlcm replace former igcd and ilcm;
wenzelm@27599
    98
corresponding theorems renamed accordingly.  INCOMPATIBILY.  To
wenzelm@27599
    99
recover tupled syntax, use syntax declarations like:
haftmann@27556
   100
haftmann@27556
   101
    hide (open) const gcd
haftmann@27556
   102
    abbreviation gcd where
haftmann@27556
   103
      "gcd == (%(a, b). GCD.gcd a b)"
haftmann@27556
   104
    notation (output)
haftmann@27556
   105
      GCD.gcd ("gcd '(_, _')")
haftmann@27556
   106
haftmann@27556
   107
(analogously for lcm, zgcd, zlcm).
haftmann@27556
   108
haftmann@27556
   109
* HOL/Real/Rational: 'Fract k 0' now equals '0'.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@27551
   110
haftmann@27651
   111
* New ML antiquotation @{code}: takes constant as argument, generates
haftmann@27651
   112
corresponding code in background and inserts name of the corresponding
haftmann@27651
   113
resulting ML value/function/datatype constructor binding in place.
haftmann@27651
   114
All occurrences of @{code} with a single ML block are generated
haftmann@27651
   115
simultaneously.  Provides a generic and safe interface for
haftmann@27651
   116
instrumentalizing code generation.  See HOL/ex/Code_Antiq for a toy
haftmann@27651
   117
example, or HOL/Complex/ex/ReflectedFerrack for a more ambitious
haftmann@27651
   118
application.  In future you ought refrain from ad-hoc compiling
haftmann@27651
   119
generated SML code on the ML toplevel.  Note that (for technical
haftmann@27651
   120
reasons) @{code} cannot refer to constants for which user-defined
haftmann@27651
   121
serializations are set.  Refer to the corresponding ML counterpart
haftmann@27651
   122
directly in that cases.
haftmann@27651
   123
haftmann@27424
   124
* Integrated image HOL-Complex with HOL.  Entry points Main.thy and
haftmann@27424
   125
Complex_Main.thy remain as they are.
haftmann@27424
   126
wenzelm@27599
   127
* New image HOL-Plain provides a minimal HOL with the most important
wenzelm@27599
   128
tools available (inductive, datatype, primrec, ...).  By convention
wenzelm@27599
   129
the corresponding theory Plain should be ancestor of every further
wenzelm@27599
   130
(library) theory.  Some library theories now have ancestor Plain
wenzelm@27599
   131
(instead of Main), thus theory Main occasionally has to be imported
wenzelm@27599
   132
explicitly.
haftmann@27421
   133
wenzelm@28248
   134
* The metis method now fails in the usual manner, rather than raising
wenzelm@28248
   135
an exception, if it determines that it cannot prove the theorem.
paulson@28233
   136
wenzelm@27324
   137
* Methods "case_tac" and "induct_tac" now refer to the very same rules
wenzelm@27324
   138
as the structured Isar versions "cases" and "induct", cf. the
wenzelm@27324
   139
corresponding "cases" and "induct" attributes.  Mutual induction rules
wenzelm@27324
   140
are now presented as a list of individual projections
wenzelm@27324
   141
(e.g. foo_bar.inducts for types foo and bar); the old format with
wenzelm@27324
   142
explicit HOL conjunction is no longer supported.  INCOMPATIBILITY, in
wenzelm@27324
   143
rare situations a different rule is selected --- notably nested tuple
wenzelm@27324
   144
elimination instead of former prod.exhaust: use explicit (case_tac t
wenzelm@27324
   145
rule: prod.exhaust) here.
wenzelm@27122
   146
wenzelm@27141
   147
* Attributes "cases", "induct", "coinduct" support "del" option.
wenzelm@27141
   148
wenzelm@27122
   149
* Removed fact "case_split_thm", which duplicates "case_split".
wenzelm@27122
   150
wenzelm@27122
   151
* Command 'rep_datatype': instead of theorem names the command now
wenzelm@27122
   152
takes a list of terms denoting the constructors of the type to be
wenzelm@27122
   153
represented as datatype.  The characteristic theorems have to be
wenzelm@27122
   154
proven.  INCOMPATIBILITY.  Also observe that the following theorems
wenzelm@27122
   155
have disappeared in favour of existing ones:
wenzelm@27122
   156
haftmann@27104
   157
    unit_induct                 ~> unit.induct
haftmann@27104
   158
    prod_induct                 ~> prod.induct
haftmann@27104
   159
    sum_induct                  ~> sum.induct
haftmann@27104
   160
    Suc_Suc_eq                  ~> nat.inject
haftmann@27104
   161
    Suc_not_Zero Zero_not_Suc   ~> nat.distinct
haftmann@27104
   162
wenzelm@27122
   163
* Library/Nat_Infinity: added addition, numeral syntax and more
wenzelm@27122
   164
instantiations for algebraic structures.  Removed some duplicate
wenzelm@27122
   165
theorems.  Changes in simp rules.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@27104
   166
wenzelm@28088
   167
* ATP selection (E/Vampire/Spass) is now via Proof General's settings
wenzelm@28088
   168
menu.
nipkow@28067

ballarin@27696
   171
*** HOL-Algebra ***
ballarin@27696
   172
ballarin@27713
   173
* New locales for orders and lattices where the equivalence relation
ballarin@27713
   174
  is not restricted to equality.  INCOMPATIBILITY: all order and
ballarin@27713
   175
  lattice locales use a record structure with field eq for the
ballarin@27713
   176
  equivalence.
ballarin@27713
   177
ballarin@27713
   178
* New theory of factorial domains.
ballarin@27713
   179
ballarin@27696
   180
* Units_l_inv and Units_r_inv are now simprules by default.
ballarin@27696
   181
INCOMPATIBILITY.  Simplifier proof that require deletion of l_inv
ballarin@27696
   182
and/or r_inv will now also require deletion of these lemmas.
ballarin@27696
   183
ballarin@27696
   184
* Renamed the following theorems.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
ballarin@27696
   185
UpperD ~> Upper_memD
ballarin@27696
   186
LowerD ~> Lower_memD
ballarin@27696
   187
least_carrier ~> least_closed
ballarin@27696
   188
greatest_carrier ~> greatest_closed
ballarin@27696
   189
greatest_Lower_above ~> greatest_Lower_below
ballarin@27717
   190
one_zero ~> carrier_one_zero
ballarin@27717
   191
one_not_zero ~> carrier_one_not_zero  (collision with assumption)

huffman@27485
   194
*** HOL-NSA ***
huffman@27485
   195
huffman@27485
   196
* Created new image HOL-NSA, containing theories of nonstandard
huffman@27485
   197
analysis which were previously part of HOL-Complex.  Entry point
huffman@27485
   198
Hyperreal.thy remains valid, but theories formerly using
huffman@27485
   199
Complex_Main.thy should now use new entry point Hypercomplex.thy.
huffman@27485
   200
huffman@27485
   201
ballarin@27704
   202
*** ZF ***
ballarin@27704
   203
ballarin@27704
   204
* Proof of Zorn's Lemma for partial orders.
ballarin@27704
   205
ballarin@27704
   206
wenzelm@27246
   207
*** ML ***
wenzelm@28088
   208
wenzelm@28099
   209
* Generic Toplevel.add_hook interface allows to analyze the result of
wenzelm@28103
   210
transactions.  E.g. see src/Pure/ProofGeneral/proof_general_pgip.ML
wenzelm@28103
   211
for theorem dependency output of transactions resulting in a new
wenzelm@28103
   212
theory state.
wenzelm@28099
   213
wenzelm@28088
   214
* Name bindings in higher specification mechanisms (notably
wenzelm@28088
   215
LocalTheory.define, LocalTheory.note, and derived packages) are now
wenzelm@28088
   216
formalized as type Name.binding, replacing old bstring.
wenzelm@28088
   217
INCOMPATIBILITY, need to wrap strings via Name.binding function, see
wenzelm@28088
   218
also Name.name_of.  Packages should pass name bindings given by the
wenzelm@28088
   219
user to underlying specification mechanisms; this enables precise
wenzelm@28088
   220
tracking of source positions, for example.
wenzelm@28088
   221
wenzelm@28089
   222
* Result facts (from PureThy.note_thms, ProofContext.note_thms,
wenzelm@28089
   223
LocalTheory.note etc.) now refer to the *full* internal name, not the
wenzelm@28089
   224
bstring as before.  INCOMPATIBILITY, not detected by ML type-checking!
wenzelm@28089
   225
wenzelm@27246
   226
* Rules and tactics that read instantiations (read_instantiate,
wenzelm@27246
   227
res_inst_tac, thin_tac, subgoal_tac etc.) now demand a proper proof
wenzelm@27246
   228
context, which is required for parsing and type-checking.  Moreover,
wenzelm@27246
   229
the variables are specified as plain indexnames, not string encodings
wenzelm@27246
   230
thereof.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@27246
   231
wenzelm@27287
   232
* Disposed old type and term read functions (Sign.read_def_typ,
wenzelm@27287
   233
Sign.read_typ, Sign.read_def_terms, Sign.read_term,
wenzelm@27287
   234
Thm.read_def_cterms, Thm.read_cterm etc.).  INCOMPATIBILITY, should
wenzelm@27287
   235
use regular Syntax.read_typ, Syntax.read_term, Syntax.read_typ_global,
wenzelm@27269
   236
Syntax.read_term_global etc.; see also OldGoals.read_term as last
wenzelm@27269
   237
resort for legacy applications.
wenzelm@27269
   238
wenzelm@27380
   239
* Antiquotations: block-structured compilation context indicated by
wenzelm@27391
   240
\<lbrace> ... \<rbrace>; additional antiquotation forms:
wenzelm@27391
   241
wenzelm@27519
   242
  @{let ?pat = term}                      - term abbreviation (HO matching)
wenzelm@27519
   243
  @{note name = fact}                     - fact abbreviation
wenzelm@27519
   244
  @{thm fact}                             - singleton fact (with attributes)
wenzelm@27519
   245
  @{thms fact}                            - general fact (with attributes)
wenzelm@27519
   246
  @{lemma prop by method}                 - singleton goal
wenzelm@27519
   247
  @{lemma prop by meth1 meth2}            - singleton goal
wenzelm@27519
   248
  @{lemma prop1 ... propN by method}      - general goal
wenzelm@27519
   249
  @{lemma prop1 ... propN by meth1 meth2} - general goal
wenzelm@27519
   250
  @{lemma (open) ...}                     - open derivation
wenzelm@27380
   251
wenzelm@27246
   252
wenzelm@27979
   253
*** System ***
wenzelm@27979
   254
wenzelm@28248
   255
* The Isabelle "emacs" tool provides a specific interface to invoke
wenzelm@28248
   256
Proof General / Emacs, with more explicit failure if that is not
wenzelm@28248
   257
installed (the old isabelle-interface script silently falls back on
wenzelm@28248
   258
isabelle-process).  The PROOFGENERAL_HOME setting determines the
wenzelm@28248
   259
installation location of the Proof General distribution.
wenzelm@28248
   260
wenzelm@27979
   261
* Isabelle/lib/classes/Pure.jar provides basic support to integrate
wenzelm@27979
   262
the Isabelle process into a JVM/Scala application.  See
wenzelm@27979
   263
Isabelle/lib/jedit/plugin for a minimal example.  (The obsolete Java
wenzelm@27979

*** General ***
wenzelm@25522
   279
wenzelm@27061
   280
* The Isabelle/Isar Reference Manual (isar-ref) has been reorganized
wenzelm@27061
   281
and updated, with formally checked references as hyperlinks.
wenzelm@27061
   282
wenzelm@25994
   283
* Theory loader: use_thy (and similar operations) no longer set the
wenzelm@25994
   284
implicit ML context, which was occasionally hard to predict and in
wenzelm@25994
   285
conflict with concurrency.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use ML within Isar which
wenzelm@25994
   286
provides a proper context already.
wenzelm@25994
   287
wenzelm@26323
   288
* Theory loader: old-style ML proof scripts being *attached* to a thy
wenzelm@26323
   289
file are no longer supported.  INCOMPATIBILITY, regular 'uses' and
wenzelm@26323
   290
'use' within a theory file will do the job.
wenzelm@26323
   291
wenzelm@26650
   292
* Name space merge now observes canonical order, i.e. the second space
wenzelm@26650
   293
is inserted into the first one, while existing entries in the first
wenzelm@26659
   294
space take precedence.  INCOMPATIBILITY in rare situations, may try to
wenzelm@26650
   295
swap theory imports.
wenzelm@26650
   296
wenzelm@27067
   297
* Syntax: symbol \<chi> is now considered a letter.  Potential
wenzelm@27067
   298
INCOMPATIBILITY in identifier syntax etc.
wenzelm@27067
   299
wenzelm@27067
   300
* Outer syntax: string tokens no longer admit escaped white space,
wenzelm@27067
   301
which was an accidental (undocumented) feature.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use
wenzelm@27067
   302
white space without escapes.
wenzelm@27067
   303
wenzelm@27067
   304
* Outer syntax: string tokens may contain arbitrary character codes
wenzelm@27067
   305
specified via 3 decimal digits (as in SML).  E.g. "foo\095bar" for
wenzelm@27067
   306
"foo_bar".

   313
berghofe@26681
   314
* Unused theorems can be found using the new command 'unused_thms'.
berghofe@26681
   315
There are three ways of invoking it:
berghofe@26681
   316
berghofe@26681
   317
(1) unused_thms
berghofe@26681
   318
     Only finds unused theorems in the current theory.
berghofe@26681
   319
berghofe@26681
   320
(2) unused_thms thy_1 ... thy_n -
berghofe@26681
   321
     Finds unused theorems in the current theory and all of its ancestors,
berghofe@26681
   322
     excluding the theories thy_1 ... thy_n and all of their ancestors.
berghofe@26681
   323
berghofe@26681
   324
(3) unused_thms thy_1 ... thy_n - thy'_1 ... thy'_m
berghofe@26681
   325
     Finds unused theorems in the theories thy'_1 ... thy'_m and all of
berghofe@26681
   326
     their ancestors, excluding the theories thy_1 ... thy_n and all of
berghofe@26681
   327
     their ancestors.
berghofe@26681
   328
wenzelm@26718
   329
In order to increase the readability of the list produced by
wenzelm@26718
   330
unused_thms, theorems that have been created by a particular instance
wenzelm@26874
   331
of a theory command such as 'inductive' or 'function' are considered
wenzelm@26874
   332
to belong to the same "group", meaning that if at least one theorem in
wenzelm@26718
   333
this group is used, the other theorems in the same group are no longer
wenzelm@26718
   334
reported as unused.  Moreover, if all theorems in the group are
wenzelm@26718
   335
unused, only one theorem in the group is displayed.
wenzelm@26718
   336
wenzelm@26718
   337
Note that proof objects have to be switched on in order for
wenzelm@26718
   338
unused_thms to work properly (i.e. !proofs must be >= 1, which is
wenzelm@26874
   339
usually the case when using Proof General with the default settings).
berghofe@26681
   340
wenzelm@26650
   341
* Authentic naming of facts disallows ad-hoc overwriting of previous
wenzelm@26650
   342
theorems within the same name space.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to remove
wenzelm@26650
   343
duplicate fact bindings, or even accidental fact duplications.  Note
wenzelm@26650
   344
that tools may maintain dynamically scoped facts systematically, using
wenzelm@26650
   345
PureThy.add_thms_dynamic.
wenzelm@26650
   346
wenzelm@26660
   347
* Command 'hide' now allows to hide from "fact" name space as well.
wenzelm@26660
   348
wenzelm@26496
   349
* Eliminated destructive theorem database, simpset, claset, and
wenzelm@26496
   350
clasimpset.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY, really need to observe linear
wenzelm@26496
   351
update of theories within ML code.
wenzelm@26479
   352
wenzelm@26955
   353
* Eliminated theory ProtoPure and CPure, leaving just one Pure theory.
wenzelm@26955
   354
INCOMPATIBILITY, object-logics depending on former Pure require
wenzelm@26955
   355
additional setup PureThy.old_appl_syntax_setup; object-logics
wenzelm@26955
   356
depending on former CPure need to refer to Pure.
wenzelm@26650
   357
wenzelm@26495
   358
* Commands 'use' and 'ML' are now purely functional, operating on
wenzelm@26479
   359
theory/local_theory.  Removed former 'ML_setup' (on theory), use 'ML'
wenzelm@26479
   360
instead.  Added 'ML_val' as mere diagnostic replacement for 'ML'.
wenzelm@26479
   361
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@26479
   362
wenzelm@26874
   363
* Command 'setup': discontinued implicit version with ML reference.
wenzelm@26434
   364
wenzelm@25970
   365
* Instantiation target allows for simultaneous specification of class
wenzelm@25970
   366
instance operations together with an instantiation proof.
wenzelm@25970
   367
Type-checking phase allows to refer to class operations uniformly.

wenzelm@26201
   371
* Indexing of literal facts: be more serious about including only
wenzelm@26201
   372
facts from the visible specification/proof context, but not the
wenzelm@26201
   373
background context (locale etc.).  Affects `prop` notation and method
wenzelm@26201
   374
"fact".  INCOMPATIBILITY: need to name facts explicitly in rare
wenzelm@26201
   375
situations.
wenzelm@26201
   376
wenzelm@26925
   377
* Method "cases", "induct", "coinduct": removed obsolete/undocumented
wenzelm@26925
   378
"(open)" option, which used to expose internal bound variables to the
wenzelm@26925
   379
proof text.
wenzelm@26925
   380
wenzelm@26925
   381
* Isar statements: removed obsolete case "rule_context".
wenzelm@26925
   382
INCOMPATIBILITY, better use explicit fixes/assumes.
wenzelm@26925
   383
wenzelm@26874
   384
* Locale proofs: default proof step now includes 'unfold_locales';
wenzelm@26874
   385
hence 'proof' without argument may be used to unfold locale
wenzelm@26874
   386
predicates.

wenzelm@26914
   391
* Simplified pdfsetup.sty: color/hyperref is used unconditionally for
wenzelm@26914
   392
both pdf and dvi (hyperlinks usually work in xdvi as well); removed
wenzelm@26914
   393
obsolete thumbpdf setup (contemporary PDF viewers do this on the
wenzelm@26914
   394
spot); renamed link color from "darkblue" to "linkcolor" (default
wenzelm@26920
   395
value unchanged, can be redefined via \definecolor); no longer sets
wenzelm@26920
   396
"a4paper" option (unnecessary or even intrusive).
wenzelm@26914

wenzelm@27008
   399
method (either a method name or a method name plus (optional) method
wenzelm@27008
   400
arguments in parentheses) and prints A just like @{prop A}.

* New primrec package.  Specification syntax conforms in style to
wenzelm@27067
   406
definition/function/....  No separate induction rule is provided.  The
wenzelm@27067
   407
"primrec" command distinguishes old-style and new-style specifications
wenzelm@27067
   408
by syntax.  The former primrec package is now named OldPrimrecPackage.
wenzelm@27067
   409
When adjusting theories, beware: constants stemming from new-style

   410
primrec specifications have authentic syntax.

with multithreading.

wenzelm@27067
   415
* Metis: the maximum number of clauses that can be produced from a
wenzelm@27067
   416
theorem is now given by the attribute max_clauses.  Theorems that
wenzelm@27067
   417
exceed this number are ignored, with a warning printed.
wenzelm@27067
   418
wenzelm@27067
   419
* Sledgehammer no longer produces structured proofs by default. To
wenzelm@27067
   420
enable, declare [[sledgehammer_full = true]].  Attributes
wenzelm@27067
   421
reconstruction_modulus, reconstruction_sorts renamed

* Method "induct_scheme" derives user-specified induction rules
wenzelm@27067
   425
from well-founded induction and completeness of patterns. This factors
wenzelm@27067
   426
out some operations that are done internally by the function package
wenzelm@27067
   427
and makes them available separately.  See
wenzelm@27067
   428
src/HOL/ex/Induction_Scheme.thy for examples.

   429
wenzelm@27067
   430
* More flexible generation of measure functions for termination
wenzelm@27067
   431
proofs: Measure functions can be declared by proving a rule of the
wenzelm@27067
   432
form "is_measure f" and giving it the [measure_function] attribute.
wenzelm@27067
   433
The "is_measure" predicate is logically meaningless (always true), and
wenzelm@27067
   434
just guides the heuristic.  To find suitable measure functions, the
wenzelm@27067
   435
termination prover sets up the goal "is_measure ?f" of the appropriate
wenzelm@27067
   436
type and generates all solutions by prolog-style backwards proof using
wenzelm@27067
   437
the declared rules.
wenzelm@27067
   438
wenzelm@27067
   439
This setup also deals with rules like 
wenzelm@27067
   440
wenzelm@27067
   441
  "is_measure f ==> is_measure (list_size f)"
wenzelm@27067
   442
wenzelm@27067
   443
which accommodates nested datatypes that recurse through lists.
wenzelm@27067
   444
Similar rules are predeclared for products and option types.

Renamed less_imp_le to less_imp_le_nat, and less_irrefl to

* Theory Int: The representation of numerals has changed.  The infix
wenzelm@26180
   555
operator BIT and the bit datatype with constructors B0 and B1 have
wenzelm@26180
   556
disappeared.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use "Int.Bit0 x" and "Int.Bit1 y" in
wenzelm@26180
   557
place of "x BIT bit.B0" and "y BIT bit.B1", respectively.  Theorems
wenzelm@26180

depend on well-founded relations.  INCOMPATIBILITY.  Definitions
wenzelm@26180
   563
le_def and less_def have disappeared.  Consider lemmas not_less

wenzelm@26180
   591
wenzelm@26180

*** ML ***
wenzelm@25737
   638
wenzelm@27067
   639
* ML within Isar: antiquotation @{const name} or @{const

name(typargs)} produces statically-checked Const term.
wenzelm@27067
   641
wenzelm@26401
   642
* Functor NamedThmsFun: data is available to the user as dynamic fact

   643
(of the same name).  Removed obsolete print command.
wenzelm@26401
   644
wenzelm@27067
   645
* Removed obsolete "use_legacy_bindings" function.
wenzelm@26188
   646
wenzelm@25737
   647
* The ``print mode'' is now a thread-local value derived from a global
wenzelm@25737
   648
template (the former print_mode reference), thus access becomes
wenzelm@25737
   649
non-critical.  The global print_mode reference is for session
wenzelm@25737
   650
management only; user-code should use print_mode_value,
wenzelm@25737
   651
print_mode_active, PrintMode.setmp etc.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@25737
   652
wenzelm@26874
   653
* Functions system/system_out provide a robust way to invoke external
wenzelm@27008

wenzelm@27067
   682
way of changing the user's settings is via
wenzelm@27067
   683

wenzelm@17754
   701
*** General ***
wenzelm@17754
   702
wenzelm@22826
   703
* More uniform information about legacy features, notably a
wenzelm@22826
   704
warning/error of "Legacy feature: ...", depending on the state of the
wenzelm@23367
   705
tolerate_legacy_features flag (default true). FUTURE INCOMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@23367
   706
legacy features will disappear eventually.
wenzelm@22826
   707
wenzelm@17918
   708
* Theory syntax: the header format ``theory A = B + C:'' has been
wenzelm@17918
   709
discontinued in favour of ``theory A imports B C begin''.  Use isatool
wenzelm@17918
   710
fixheaders to convert existing theory files.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17918
   711
wenzelm@17918
   712
* Theory syntax: the old non-Isar theory file format has been
wenzelm@17918
   713
discontinued altogether.  Note that ML proof scripts may still be used
wenzelm@17918
   714
with Isar theories; migration is usually quite simple with the ML
wenzelm@17918
   715
function use_legacy_bindings.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17918
   716
wenzelm@22871
   717
* Theory syntax: some popular names (e.g. 'class', 'declaration',
wenzelm@22871
   718
'fun', 'help', 'if') are now keywords.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use double
wenzelm@22871
   719
quotes.
wenzelm@19814
   720
wenzelm@23888
   721
* Theory loader: be more serious about observing the static theory
wenzelm@23888
   722
header specifications (including optional directories), but not the
wenzelm@24172
   723
accidental file locations of previously successful loads.  The strict
wenzelm@24172
   724
update policy of former update_thy is now already performed by
wenzelm@24172
   725
use_thy, so the former has been removed; use_thys updates several
wenzelm@24172
   726
theories simultaneously, just as 'imports' within a theory header
wenzelm@24172
   727
specification, but without merging the results.  Potential
wenzelm@24172
   728
INCOMPATIBILITY: may need to refine theory headers and commands
wenzelm@24172
   729
ROOT.ML which depend on load order.
wenzelm@23888
   730
wenzelm@23888
   731
* Theory loader: optional support for content-based file
wenzelm@23888
   732
identification, instead of the traditional scheme of full physical
wenzelm@23889
   733
path plus date stamp; configured by the ISABELLE_FILE_IDENT setting
wenzelm@23888
   734
(cf. the system manual).  The new scheme allows to work with
wenzelm@23888
   735
non-finished theories in persistent session images, such that source
wenzelm@23888
   736
files may be moved later on without requiring reloads.
wenzelm@23888
   737
wenzelm@24187
   738
* Theory loader: old-style ML proof scripts being *attached* to a thy
wenzelm@24187
   739
file (with the same base name as the theory) are considered a legacy
wenzelm@24800
   740
feature, which will disappear eventually. Even now, the theory loader
wenzelm@24800
   741
no longer maintains dependencies on such files.
wenzelm@24800
   742
wenzelm@24800
   743
* Syntax: the scope for resolving ambiguities via type-inference is
wenzelm@24800
   744
now limited to individual terms, instead of whole simultaneous
wenzelm@24234
   745
specifications as before. This greatly reduces the complexity of the
wenzelm@24234
   746
syntax module and improves flexibility by separating parsing and
wenzelm@24234
   747
type-checking. INCOMPATIBILITY: additional type-constraints (explicit
wenzelm@24234
   748
'fixes' etc.) are required in rare situations.
wenzelm@24234
   749
wenzelm@25034
   750
* Syntax: constants introduced by new-style packages ('definition',
wenzelm@25034
   751
'abbreviation' etc.) are passed through the syntax module in
wenzelm@25034
   752
``authentic mode''. This means that associated mixfix annotations
wenzelm@25034
   753
really stick to such constants, independently of potential name space
wenzelm@25034
   754
ambiguities introduced later on. INCOMPATIBILITY: constants in parse
wenzelm@25034
   755
trees are represented slightly differently, may need to adapt syntax
wenzelm@25034
   756
translations accordingly. Use CONST marker in 'translations' and
wenzelm@25034
   757
@{const_syntax} antiquotation in 'parse_translation' etc.
wenzelm@25034
   758
wenzelm@17981
   759
* Legacy goal package: reduced interface to the bare minimum required
wenzelm@17981
   760
to keep existing proof scripts running.  Most other user-level
wenzelm@17981
   761
functions are now part of the OldGoals structure, which is *not* open
wenzelm@17981
   762
by default (consider isatool expandshort before open OldGoals).
wenzelm@17981
   763
Removed top_sg, prin, printyp, pprint_term/typ altogether, because
wenzelm@17981
   764
these tend to cause confusion about the actual goal (!) context being
wenzelm@17981
   765
used here, which is not necessarily the same as the_context().
wenzelm@17918
   766
wenzelm@23379
   767
* Command 'find_theorems': supports "*" wild-card in "name:"
wenzelm@23379
   768
criterion; "with_dups" option.  Certain ProofGeneral versions might
wenzelm@23379
   769
support a specific search form (see ProofGeneral/CHANGES).
webertj@22965
   770
wenzelm@20370
   771
* The ``prems limit'' option (cf. ProofContext.prems_limit) is now -1
wenzelm@20370
   772
by default, which means that "prems" (and also "fixed variables") are
wenzelm@20370
   773
suppressed from proof state output.  Note that the ProofGeneral
wenzelm@20370
   774
settings mechanism allows to change and save options persistently, but
wenzelm@20370
   775
older versions of Isabelle will fail to start up if a negative prems
wenzelm@20370
   776
limit is imposed.
wenzelm@20370
   777
wenzelm@21308
   778
* Local theory targets may be specified by non-nested blocks of
wenzelm@21308
   779
``context/locale/class ... begin'' followed by ``end''.  The body may
wenzelm@21308
   780
contain definitions, theorems etc., including any derived mechanism
wenzelm@21308
   781
that has been implemented on top of these primitives.  This concept
wenzelm@21308
   782
generalizes the existing ``theorem (in ...)'' towards more versatility
wenzelm@21308
   783
and scalability.
wenzelm@21308
   784
wenzelm@21960
   785
* Proof General interface: proper undo of final 'end' command;
wenzelm@21960
   786
discontinued Isabelle/classic mode (ML proof scripts).

*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@17865
   790
wenzelm@21717
   791
* Added antiquotation @{theory name} which prints the given name,
wenzelm@21717
   792
after checking that it refers to a valid ancestor theory in the
wenzelm@21717
   793
current context.
haftmann@21339
   794
wenzelm@17869
   795
* Added antiquotations @{ML_type text} and @{ML_struct text} which
wenzelm@17869
   796
check the given source text as ML type/structure, printing verbatim.
wenzelm@17865
   797
wenzelm@21717
   798
* Added antiquotation @{abbrev "c args"} which prints the abbreviation
wenzelm@21717
   799
"c args == rhs" given in the current context.  (Any number of
wenzelm@21735
   800
arguments may be given on the LHS.)

   804
wenzelm@24800
   805
* The 'class' package offers a combination of axclass and locale to
wenzelm@25129
   806
achieve Haskell-like type classes in Isabelle.  Definitions and
wenzelm@25129
   807
theorems within a class context produce both relative results (with
wenzelm@25129
   808
implicit parameters according to the locale context), and polymorphic
wenzelm@25129
   809
constants with qualified polymorphism (according to the class
wenzelm@25129
   810
context).  Within the body context of a 'class' target, a separate
wenzelm@25129
   811

code for ML and Haskell (including Isabelle classes).  A short usage

        export_code <list of constants (term syntax)> in SML
haftmann@20453
   822
    writing SML code to a file:

Theorem attributs for selecting and transforming function equations theorems:
haftmann@20453
   835
haftmann@22845
   836
    [code fun]:        select a theorem as function equation for a specific constant
haftmann@22845

    [code fun del]:    deselect a theorem as function equation for a specific constant
haftmann@22845
   838
    [code inline]:     select an equation theorem for unfolding (inlining) in place
haftmann@22845

haftmann@20453

   849
    code_instance <and-list of instances>

haftmann@20453
   856
haftmann@25199
   857
code_instance and code_class only are effective to target Haskell.

   864
* Code generator: consts in 'consts_code' Isar commands are now
wenzelm@25129
   865
referred to by usual term syntax (including optional type
wenzelm@25129
   866
annotations).
wenzelm@25129
   867
wenzelm@19254
   868
* Command 'no_translations' removes translation rules from theory
wenzelm@19254
   869
syntax.
wenzelm@19254
   870
wenzelm@19625
   871
* Overloaded definitions are now actually checked for acyclic
wenzelm@19714
   872
dependencies.  The overloading scheme is slightly more general than
wenzelm@19714
   873
that of Haskell98, although Isabelle does not demand an exact
wenzelm@19714
   874
correspondence to type class and instance declarations.
wenzelm@19714
   875
INCOMPATIBILITY, use ``defs (unchecked overloaded)'' to admit more
wenzelm@19714
   876
exotic versions of overloading -- at the discretion of the user!
wenzelm@19711
   877
wenzelm@19711
   878
Polymorphic constants are represented via type arguments, i.e. the
wenzelm@19711
   879
instantiation that matches an instance against the most general
wenzelm@19711
   880
declaration given in the signature.  For example, with the declaration
wenzelm@19711
   881
c :: 'a => 'a => 'a, an instance c :: nat => nat => nat is represented
wenzelm@19711
   882
as c(nat).  Overloading is essentially simultaneous structural
wenzelm@19711
   883
recursion over such type arguments.  Incomplete specification patterns
wenzelm@19714
   884
impose global constraints on all occurrences, e.g. c('a * 'a) on the
wenzelm@19715
   885
LHS means that more general c('a * 'b) will be disallowed on any RHS.
wenzelm@19714
   886
Command 'print_theory' outputs the normalized system of recursive
wenzelm@19714
   887
equations, see section "definitions".
wenzelm@19625
   888
wenzelm@24086
   889
* Configuration options are maintained within the theory or proof
wenzelm@24086
   890
context (with name and type bool/int/string), providing a very simple
wenzelm@24086
   891
interface to a poor-man's version of general context data.  Tools may
wenzelm@24110
   892
declare options in ML (e.g. using Attrib.config_int) and then refer to
wenzelm@24110
   893
these values using Config.get etc.  Users may change options via an
wenzelm@24110
   894
associated attribute of the same name.  This form of context
wenzelm@24110
   895
declaration works particularly well with commands 'declare' or
wenzelm@24110
   896
'using', for example ``declare [[foo = 42]]''.  Thus it has become
wenzelm@24110
   897
very easy to avoid global references, which would not observe Isar
wenzelm@24110
   898
toplevel undo/redo and fail to work with multithreading.
wenzelm@24086
   899
wenzelm@24172
   900
Various global ML references of Pure and HOL have been turned into
wenzelm@24172
   901
configuration options:

wenzelm@24172
   912
wenzelm@24086
   913
* Named collections of theorems may be easily installed as context
wenzelm@24800
   914
data using the functor NamedThmsFun (see also
wenzelm@24086
   915
src/Pure/Tools/named_thms.ML).  The user may add or delete facts via
wenzelm@24110
   916
attributes; there is also a toplevel print command.  This facility is
wenzelm@24110
   917
just a common case of general context data, which is the preferred way
wenzelm@24110
   918
for anything more complex than just a list of facts in canonical
wenzelm@24110
   919
order.
wenzelm@24086
   920
wenzelm@24032
   921
* Isar: command 'declaration' augments a local theory by generic
wenzelm@24032
   922
declaration functions written in ML.  This enables arbitrary content
wenzelm@24032
   923
being added to the context, depending on a morphism that tells the
wenzelm@24032
   924
difference of the original declaration context wrt. the application
wenzelm@24032
   925
context encountered later on.
wenzelm@24032
   926
wenzelm@24032
   927
* Isar: proper interfaces for simplification procedures.  Command
wenzelm@24032
   928
'simproc_setup' declares named simprocs (with match patterns, and body
wenzelm@24032
   929
text in ML).  Attribute "simproc" adds/deletes simprocs in the current
wenzelm@24032
   930
context.  ML antiquotation @{simproc name} retrieves named simprocs.
wenzelm@24032
   931
wenzelm@24032
   932
* Isar: an extra pair of brackets around attribute declarations
wenzelm@24032
   933
abbreviates a theorem reference involving an internal dummy fact,
wenzelm@24032
   934
which will be ignored later --- only the effect of the attribute on
wenzelm@24032
   935
the background context will persist.  This form of in-place
wenzelm@24032
   936
declarations is particularly useful with commands like 'declare' and
wenzelm@24032
   937
'using', for example ``have A using [[simproc a]] by simp''.
wenzelm@24032
   938
wenzelm@23369
   939
* Isar: method "assumption" (and implicit closing of subproofs) now
wenzelm@23369
   940
takes simple non-atomic goal assumptions into account: after applying
wenzelm@23369
   941
an assumption as a rule the resulting subgoals are solved by atomic
wenzelm@23369
   942
assumption steps.  This is particularly useful to finish 'obtain'
wenzelm@23369
   943
goals, such as "!!x. (!!x. P x ==> thesis) ==> P x ==> thesis",
wenzelm@23369
   944
without referring to the original premise "!!x. P x ==> thesis" in the
wenzelm@23369
   945
Isar proof context.  POTENTIAL INCOMPATIBILITY: method "assumption" is
wenzelm@23369
   946
more permissive.
wenzelm@23369
   947
wenzelm@23369
   948
* Isar: implicit use of prems from the Isar proof context is
wenzelm@23369
   949
considered a legacy feature.  Common applications like ``have A .''
wenzelm@23369
   950
may be replaced by ``have A by fact'' or ``note `A`''.  In general,
wenzelm@23369
   951
referencing facts explicitly here improves readability and
wenzelm@23369
   952
maintainability of proof texts.
wenzelm@23369
   953
wenzelm@17865
   954
* Isar: improper proof element 'guess' is like 'obtain', but derives
wenzelm@17865
   955
the obtained context from the course of reasoning!  For example:
wenzelm@17865
   956
wenzelm@17865
   957
  assume "EX x y. A x & B y"   -- "any previous fact"
wenzelm@17865
   958
  then guess x and y by clarify
wenzelm@17865
   959
wenzelm@17865
   960
This technique is potentially adventurous, depending on the facts and
wenzelm@17865
   961
proof tools being involved here.
wenzelm@17865
   962
wenzelm@18020
   963
* Isar: known facts from the proof context may be specified as literal
wenzelm@18020
   964
propositions, using ASCII back-quote syntax.  This works wherever
wenzelm@18020
   965
named facts used to be allowed so far, in proof commands, proof
wenzelm@18020
   966
methods, attributes etc.  Literal facts are retrieved from the context
wenzelm@18020
   967
according to unification of type and term parameters.  For example,
wenzelm@18020
   968
provided that "A" and "A ==> B" and "!!x. P x ==> Q x" are known
wenzelm@18020
   969
theorems in the current context, then these are valid literal facts:
wenzelm@18020
   970
`A` and `A ==> B` and `!!x. P x ==> Q x" as well as `P a ==> Q a` etc.
wenzelm@18020
   971
wenzelm@18020
   972
There is also a proof method "fact" which does the same composition
wenzelm@18044
   973
for explicit goal states, e.g. the following proof texts coincide with
wenzelm@18044
   974
certain special cases of literal facts:
wenzelm@18020
   975
wenzelm@18020
   976
  have "A" by fact                 ==  note `A`
wenzelm@18020
   977
  have "A ==> B" by fact           ==  note `A ==> B`
wenzelm@18020
   978
  have "!!x. P x ==> Q x" by fact  ==  note `!!x. P x ==> Q x`
wenzelm@18020
   979
  have "P a ==> Q a" by fact       ==  note `P a ==> Q a`
wenzelm@18020
   980
wenzelm@20118
   981
* Isar: ":" (colon) is no longer a symbolic identifier character in
wenzelm@20118
   982
outer syntax.  Thus symbolic identifiers may be used without
wenzelm@20118
   983
additional white space in declarations like this: ``assume *: A''.
wenzelm@20118
   984
wenzelm@20013
   985
* Isar: 'print_facts' prints all local facts of the current context,
wenzelm@20013
   986
both named and unnamed ones.
wenzelm@20013
   987
wenzelm@18308
   988
* Isar: 'def' now admits simultaneous definitions, e.g.:
wenzelm@18308
   989
wenzelm@18308
   990
  def x == "t" and y == "u"
wenzelm@18308
   991
wenzelm@18540
   992
* Isar: added command 'unfolding', which is structurally similar to
wenzelm@18540
   993
'using', but affects both the goal state and facts by unfolding given
wenzelm@18815
   994
rewrite rules.  Thus many occurrences of the 'unfold' method or
wenzelm@18540
   995
'unfolded' attribute may be replaced by first-class proof text.
wenzelm@18540
   996
wenzelm@18815
   997
* Isar: methods 'unfold' / 'fold', attributes 'unfolded' / 'folded',
wenzelm@18815
   998
and command 'unfolding' now all support object-level equalities
wenzelm@18815
   999
(potentially conditional).  The underlying notion of rewrite rule is
wenzelm@18815
  1000
analogous to the 'rule_format' attribute, but *not* that of the
wenzelm@18815
  1001
Simplifier (which is usually more generous).
wenzelm@18815
  1002
kleing@24238
  1003
* Isar: the new attribute [rotated n] (default n = 1) rotates the
kleing@24238
  1004
premises of a theorem by n. Useful in conjunction with drule.
kleing@24238
  1005
wenzelm@19220
  1006
* Isar: the goal restriction operator [N] (default N = 1) evaluates a
wenzelm@19220
  1007
method expression within a sandbox consisting of the first N
wenzelm@19240
  1008
sub-goals, which need to exist.  For example, ``simp_all [3]''
wenzelm@19240
  1009
simplifies the first three sub-goals, while (rule foo, simp_all)[]
wenzelm@19240
  1010
simplifies all new goals that emerge from applying rule foo to the
wenzelm@19240
  1011
originally first one.
wenzelm@19220
  1012
wenzelm@19814
  1013
* Isar: schematic goals are no longer restricted to higher-order
wenzelm@19814
  1014
patterns; e.g. ``lemma "?P(?x)" by (rule TrueI)'' now works as
wenzelm@19814
  1015
expected.
wenzelm@19814
  1016
wenzelm@18901
  1017
* Isar: the conclusion of a long theorem statement is now either
wenzelm@18901
  1018
'shows' (a simultaneous conjunction, as before), or 'obtains'
wenzelm@18901
  1019
(essentially a disjunction of cases with local parameters and
wenzelm@18901
  1020
assumptions).  The latter allows to express general elimination rules
wenzelm@18910
  1021
adequately; in this notation common elimination rules look like this:
wenzelm@18901
  1022
wenzelm@18901
  1023
  lemma exE:    -- "EX x. P x ==> (!!x. P x ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1024
    assumes "EX x. P x"
wenzelm@18901
  1025
    obtains x where "P x"
wenzelm@18901
  1026
wenzelm@18901
  1027
  lemma conjE:  -- "A & B ==> (A ==> B ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1028
    assumes "A & B"
wenzelm@18901
  1029
    obtains A and B
wenzelm@18901
  1030
wenzelm@18901
  1031
  lemma disjE:  -- "A | B ==> (A ==> thesis) ==> (B ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1032
    assumes "A | B"
wenzelm@18901
  1033
    obtains
wenzelm@18901
  1034
      A
wenzelm@18901
  1035
    | B
wenzelm@18901
  1036
wenzelm@18910
  1037
The subsequent classical rules even refer to the formal "thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1038
explicitly:
wenzelm@18901
  1039
wenzelm@18901
  1040
  lemma classical:     -- "(~ thesis ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1041
    obtains "~ thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1042
wenzelm@18910
  1043
  lemma Peirce's_Law:  -- "((thesis ==> something) ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18910
  1044
    obtains "thesis ==> something"
wenzelm@18901
  1045
wenzelm@18901
  1046
The actual proof of an 'obtains' statement is analogous to that of the
wenzelm@18910
  1047
Isar proof element 'obtain', only that there may be several cases.
wenzelm@18910
  1048
Optional case names may be specified in parentheses; these will be
wenzelm@18910
  1049
available both in the present proof and as annotations in the
wenzelm@18910
  1050
resulting rule, for later use with the 'cases' method (cf. attribute
wenzelm@18910
  1051
case_names).
wenzelm@18901
  1052
wenzelm@21447
  1053
* Isar: the assumptions of a long theorem statement are available as
wenzelm@21447
  1054
"assms" fact in the proof context.  This is more appropriate than the
wenzelm@21447
  1055
(historical) "prems", which refers to all assumptions of the current
wenzelm@21447
  1056
context, including those from the target locale, proof body etc.
wenzelm@21447
  1057
wenzelm@19263
  1058
* Isar: 'print_statement' prints theorems from the current theory or
wenzelm@19263
  1059
proof context in long statement form, according to the syntax of a
wenzelm@19263
  1060
top-level lemma.
wenzelm@19263
  1061
wenzelm@18901
  1062
* Isar: 'obtain' takes an optional case name for the local context
wenzelm@18901
  1063
introduction rule (default "that").
wenzelm@18901
  1064
wenzelm@19587
  1065
* Isar: removed obsolete 'concl is' patterns.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use
wenzelm@19587
  1066
explicit (is "_ ==> ?foo") in the rare cases where this still happens
wenzelm@19587
  1067
to occur.
wenzelm@19587
  1068
wenzelm@19682
  1069
* Pure: syntax "CONST name" produces a fully internalized constant
wenzelm@19682
  1070
according to the current context.  This is particularly useful for
wenzelm@19682
  1071
syntax translations that should refer to internal constant
wenzelm@19682
  1072
representations independently of name spaces.
wenzelm@19682
  1073
wenzelm@21537
  1074
* Pure: syntax constant for foo (binder "FOO ") is called "foo_binder"
wenzelm@21537
  1075
instead of "FOO ". This allows multiple binder declarations to coexist
wenzelm@21537
  1076
in the same context.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@21537
  1077
wenzelm@21209
  1078
* Isar/locales: 'notation' provides a robust interface to the 'syntax'
wenzelm@21209
  1079
primitive that also works in a locale context (both for constants and
wenzelm@24950
  1080
fixed variables). Type declaration and internal syntactic representation
wenzelm@24950
  1081
of given constants retrieved from the context. Likewise, the
wenzelm@24950
  1082
'no_notation' command allows to remove given syntax annotations from the
wenzelm@24950
  1083
current context.
wenzelm@19682
  1084
wenzelm@19665
  1085
* Isar/locales: new derived specification elements 'axiomatization',
wenzelm@19665
  1086
'definition', 'abbreviation', which support type-inference, admit
wenzelm@19083
  1087
object-level specifications (equality, equivalence).  See also the
wenzelm@19083
  1088
isar-ref manual.  Examples:
wenzelm@19081
  1089
wenzelm@19665
  1090
  axiomatization
wenzelm@21595
  1091
    eq  (infix "===" 50) where
wenzelm@21595
  1092
    eq_refl: "x === x" and eq_subst: "x === y ==> P x ==> P y"
wenzelm@21595
  1093
wenzelm@21595
  1094
  definition "f x y = x + y + 1"
wenzelm@21595
  1095
  definition g where "g x = f x x"
wenzelm@19081
  1096
wenzelm@19363
  1097
  abbreviation
wenzelm@21595
  1098
    neq  (infix "=!=" 50) where
wenzelm@19363
  1099
    "x =!= y == ~ (x === y)"
wenzelm@19081
  1100
wenzelm@19083
  1101
These specifications may be also used in a locale context.  Then the
wenzelm@19083
  1102
constants being introduced depend on certain fixed parameters, and the
wenzelm@19083
  1103
constant name is qualified by the locale base name.  An internal
wenzelm@19083
  1104
abbreviation takes care for convenient input and output, making the
wenzelm@19088
  1105
parameters implicit and using the original short name.  See also
wenzelm@25177
  1106
src/HOL/ex/Abstract_NAT.thy for an example of deriving polymorphic
wenzelm@19083
  1107
entities from a monomorphic theory.
wenzelm@19083
  1108
wenzelm@19083
  1109
Presently, abbreviations are only available 'in' a target locale, but
wenzelm@19363
  1110
not inherited by general import expressions.  Also note that
wenzelm@19363
  1111
'abbreviation' may be used as a type-safe replacement for 'syntax' +
wenzelm@24735
  1112
'translations' in common applications.  The "no_abbrevs" print mode
wenzelm@24735
  1113
prevents folding of abbreviations in term output.
wenzelm@19084
  1114
wenzelm@19682
  1115
Concrete syntax is attached to specified constants in internal form,
wenzelm@19682
  1116
independently of name spaces.  The parse tree representation is
wenzelm@21209
  1117
slightly different -- use 'notation' instead of raw 'syntax', and
wenzelm@19682
  1118
'translations' with explicit "CONST" markup to accommodate this.
wenzelm@19665
  1119
wenzelm@24800
  1120
* Pure/Isar: unified syntax for new-style specification mechanisms
wenzelm@24800
  1121
(e.g.  'definition', 'abbreviation', or 'inductive' in HOL) admits
wenzelm@24800
  1122
full type inference and dummy patterns ("_").  For example:
wenzelm@24735
  1123
wenzelm@24735
  1124
  definition "K x _ = x"
wenzelm@24735
  1125
wenzelm@24738
  1126
  inductive conj for A B
wenzelm@24738
  1127
  where "A ==> B ==> conj A B"
wenzelm@24738
  1128
wenzelm@21735
  1129
* Pure: command 'print_abbrevs' prints all constant abbreviations of
wenzelm@21735
  1130
the current context.  Print mode "no_abbrevs" prevents inversion of
wenzelm@21735
  1131
abbreviations on output.
wenzelm@21735
  1132
wenzelm@24800
  1133
* Isar/locales: improved parameter handling: use of locales "var" and
wenzelm@24800
  1134
"struct" no longer necessary; - parameter renamings are no longer
wenzelm@24800
  1135
required to be injective.  For example, this allows to define
wenzelm@24800
  1136
endomorphisms as locale endom = homom mult mult h.
ballarin@19783
  1137
ballarin@19931
  1138
* Isar/locales: changed the way locales with predicates are defined.
ballarin@19931
  1139
Instead of accumulating the specification, the imported expression is
wenzelm@22126
  1140
now an interpretation.  INCOMPATIBILITY: different normal form of
wenzelm@22126
  1141
locale expressions.  In particular, in interpretations of locales with
wenzelm@22126
  1142
predicates, goals repesenting already interpreted fragments are not
wenzelm@22126
  1143
removed automatically.  Use methods `intro_locales' and
wenzelm@22126
  1144
`unfold_locales'; see below.
wenzelm@22126
  1145
wenzelm@22126
  1146
* Isar/locales: new methods `intro_locales' and `unfold_locales'
wenzelm@22126
  1147
provide backward reasoning on locales predicates.  The methods are
wenzelm@22126
  1148
aware of interpretations and discharge corresponding goals.
wenzelm@22126
  1149
`intro_locales' is less aggressive then `unfold_locales' and does not
wenzelm@22126
  1150
unfold predicates to assumptions.
ballarin@19931
  1151
ballarin@19931
  1152
* Isar/locales: the order in which locale fragments are accumulated
wenzelm@22126
  1153
has changed.  This enables to override declarations from fragments due
wenzelm@22126
  1154
to interpretations -- for example, unwanted simp rules.
ballarin@19931
  1155
ballarin@23920
  1156
* Isar/locales: interpretation in theories and proof contexts has been
ballarin@23920
  1157
extended.  One may now specify (and prove) equations, which are
ballarin@23920
  1158
unfolded in interpreted theorems.  This is useful for replacing
ballarin@23920
  1159
defined concepts (constants depending on locale parameters) by
ballarin@23920
  1160
concepts already existing in the target context.  Example:
ballarin@23920
  1161
ballarin@23920
  1162
  interpretation partial_order ["op <= :: [int, int] => bool"]
ballarin@23920
  1163
    where "partial_order.less (op <=) (x::int) y = (x < y)"
ballarin@23920
  1164
wenzelm@24800
  1165
Typically, the constant `partial_order.less' is created by a
wenzelm@24800
  1166
definition specification element in the context of locale
wenzelm@24800
  1167
partial_order.
wenzelm@24800
  1168
wenzelm@24859
  1169
* Method "induct": improved internal context management to support
wenzelm@24800
  1170
local fixes and defines on-the-fly. Thus explicit meta-level
wenzelm@24800
  1171
connectives !!  and ==> are rarely required anymore in inductive goals
wenzelm@24800
  1172
(using object-logic connectives for this purpose has been long
wenzelm@24800
  1173
obsolete anyway). Common proof patterns are explained in
wenzelm@25177
  1174
src/HOL/Induct/Common_Patterns.thy, see also
wenzelm@25177
  1175
src/HOL/Isar_examples/Puzzle.thy and src/HOL/Lambda for realistic
wenzelm@25177
  1176
examples.
wenzelm@24606
  1177
wenzelm@24859
  1178
* Method "induct": improved handling of simultaneous goals. Instead of
wenzelm@24606
  1179
introducing object-level conjunction, the statement is now split into
wenzelm@24606
  1180
several conclusions, while the corresponding symbolic cases are nested
wenzelm@24606
  1181
accordingly. INCOMPATIBILITY, proofs need to be structured explicitly,
wenzelm@25177
  1182
see src/HOL/Induct/Common_Patterns.thy, for example.
wenzelm@24606
  1183
wenzelm@24859
  1184
* Method "induct": mutual induction rules are now specified as a list
wenzelm@24800
  1185
of rule sharing the same induction cases. HOL packages usually provide
wenzelm@24606
  1186
foo_bar.inducts for mutually defined items foo and bar (e.g. inductive
wenzelm@24859
  1187
predicates/sets or datatypes). INCOMPATIBILITY, users need to specify
wenzelm@24859
  1188
mutual induction rules differently, i.e. like this:
wenzelm@18506
  1189
wenzelm@18506
  1190
  (induct rule: foo_bar.inducts)
wenzelm@18506
  1191
  (induct set: foo bar)
wenzelm@24859
  1192
  (induct pred: foo bar)
wenzelm@18506
  1193
  (induct type: foo bar)
wenzelm@18506
  1194
wenzelm@18506
  1195
The ML function ProjectRule.projections turns old-style rules into the
wenzelm@18506
  1196
new format.
wenzelm@18506
  1197
wenzelm@24859
  1198
* Method "coinduct": dual of induction, see
wenzelm@18399
  1199
src/HOL/Library/Coinductive_List.thy for various examples.
wenzelm@18399
  1200
wenzelm@24859
  1201
* Method "cases", "induct", "coinduct": the ``(open)'' option is
wenzelm@24859
  1202
considered a legacy feature.
wenzelm@24859
  1203
wenzelm@20919
  1204
* Attribute "symmetric" produces result with standardized schematic
wenzelm@20919
  1205
variables (index 0).  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@20919
  1206
wenzelm@22126
  1207
* Simplifier: by default the simplifier trace only shows top level
wenzelm@22126
  1208
rewrites now. That is, trace_simp_depth_limit is set to 1 by
wenzelm@22126
  1209
default. Thus there is less danger of being flooded by the trace. The
wenzelm@22126
  1210
trace indicates where parts have been suppressed.
nipkow@18674
  1211
  
wenzelm@18536
  1212
* Provers/classical: removed obsolete classical version of elim_format
wenzelm@18536
  1213
attribute; classical elim/dest rules are now treated uniformly when
wenzelm@18536
  1214
manipulating the claset.
wenzelm@18536
  1215
wenzelm@18694
  1216
* Provers/classical: stricter checks to ensure that supplied intro,
wenzelm@18694
  1217
dest and elim rules are well-formed; dest and elim rules must have at
wenzelm@18694
  1218
least one premise.
wenzelm@18694
  1219
wenzelm@18694
  1220
* Provers/classical: attributes dest/elim/intro take an optional
wenzelm@18695
  1221
weight argument for the rule (just as the Pure versions).  Weights are
wenzelm@18696
  1222
ignored by automated tools, but determine the search order of single
wenzelm@18694
  1223
rule steps.
paulson@18557
  1224
wenzelm@18536
  1225
* Syntax: input syntax now supports dummy variable binding "%_. b",
wenzelm@18536
  1226
where the body does not mention the bound variable.  Note that dummy
wenzelm@18536
  1227
patterns implicitly depend on their context of bounds, which makes
wenzelm@18536
  1228
"{_. _}" match any set comprehension as expected.  Potential
wenzelm@18536
  1229
INCOMPATIBILITY -- parse translations need to cope with syntactic
wenzelm@18536
  1230
constant "_idtdummy" in the binding position.
wenzelm@18536
  1231
wenzelm@18536
  1232
* Syntax: removed obsolete syntactic constant "_K" and its associated
wenzelm@18536
  1233
parse translation.  INCOMPATIBILITY -- use dummy abstraction instead,
wenzelm@18536
  1234
for example "A -> B" => "Pi A (%_. B)".
wenzelm@17779
  1235
wenzelm@20582
  1236
* Pure: 'class_deps' command visualizes the subclass relation, using
wenzelm@20582
  1237
the graph browser tool.
wenzelm@20582
  1238
wenzelm@24800
  1239
* Pure: 'print_theory' now suppresses certain internal declarations by
wenzelm@24800
  1240
default; use '!' option for full details.

* New constant "undefined" with axiom "undefined x = undefined".
haftmann@25184

  1292
INCOMPATIBILITY.  Adaptions may be required in the following cases:
haftmann@25184
  1293
haftmann@25184
  1294
a) User-defined constants using any of the names "plus", "minus",
haftmann@25184
  1295
"times", "less" or "less_eq". The standard syntax translations for
haftmann@25184
  1296
"+", "-" and "*" may go wrong.  INCOMPATIBILITY: use more specific
haftmann@25184
  1297
names.
haftmann@25184
  1298
haftmann@25184
  1299
b) Variables named "plus", "minus", "times", "less", "less_eq"
haftmann@25184
  1300
INCOMPATIBILITY: use more specific names.
haftmann@25184
  1301
haftmann@25184
  1302
c) Permutative equations (e.g. "a + b = b + a")
haftmann@25184
  1303
Since the change of names also changes the order of terms, permutative
haftmann@25184
  1304
rewrite rules may get applied in a different order. Experience shows
haftmann@25184
  1305
that this is rarely the case (only two adaptions in the whole Isabelle
haftmann@25184
  1306
distribution).  INCOMPATIBILITY: rewrite proofs
haftmann@25184
  1307
haftmann@25184
  1308
d) ML code directly refering to constant names
haftmann@25184
  1309
This in general only affects hand-written proof tactics, simprocs and
haftmann@25184
  1310
so on.  INCOMPATIBILITY: grep your sourcecode and replace names.
haftmann@25184
  1311
Consider using @{const_name} antiquotation.
haftmann@25184
  1312
haftmann@25184
  1313
* New class "default" with associated constant "default".
haftmann@25184

  1317
sgn are given as equational assumptions in the classes sgn_if and
haftmann@25184
  1318
sgn_div_norm; ordered_idom now also inherits from sgn_if.
haftmann@25184
  1319
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
  1320
haftmann@25184
  1321
* Locale "partial_order" now unified with class "order" (cf. theory
haftmann@25184
  1322
Orderings), added parameter "less".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
  1323
haftmann@25184
  1324
* Renamings in classes "order" and "linorder": facts "refl", "trans" and
haftmann@25184
  1325
"cases" to "order_refl", "order_trans" and "linorder_cases", to avoid
haftmann@25184
  1326
clashes with HOL "refl" and "trans".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
  1327
haftmann@25184
  1328
* Classes "order" and "linorder": potential INCOMPATIBILITY due to
haftmann@25184
  1329
changed order of proof goals in instance proofs.
haftmann@25184

haftmann@25184
  1331

in all contexts importing or interpreting the corresponding locales.
haftmann@25184
  1334
Method "order" invokes the reasoner separately; the reasoner
haftmann@25184
  1335
is also integrated with the Simplifier as a solver.  Diagnostic
haftmann@25184

haftmann@24993
  1492
  - Code_Integer represents HOL integers by big integer literals in target
haftmann@23850
  1493
    languages.
haftmann@24993
  1494
  - Code_Char represents HOL characters by character literals in target
haftmann@23850
  1495
    languages.
haftmann@24993
  1496
  - Code_Char_chr like Code_Char, but also offers treatment of character
haftmann@24993
  1497
    codes; includes Code_Integer.
wenzelm@24800
  1498
  - Executable_Set allows to generate code for finite sets using lists.
wenzelm@24800
  1499
  - Executable_Rat implements rational numbers as triples (sign, enumerator,
haftmann@23850
  1500
    denominator).
wenzelm@24800
  1501
  - Executable_Real implements a subset of real numbers, namly those
haftmann@23850
  1502
    representable by rational numbers.
wenzelm@24800
  1503
  - Efficient_Nat implements natural numbers by integers, which in general will
haftmann@23850
  1504
    result in higher efficency; pattern matching with 0/Suc is eliminated;
haftmann@24993
  1505
    includes Code_Integer.
haftmann@24993
  1506
  - Code_Index provides an additional datatype index which is mapped to
haftmann@24993
  1507
    target-language built-in integers.
haftmann@26355
  1508
  - Code_Message provides an additional datatype message_string which is isomorphic to
haftmann@24993
  1509
    strings; messages are mapped to target-language strings.

  INCOMPATIBILITIES:
berghofe@23783
  1561
berghofe@23783
  1562
  - Since declaration and definition of inductive sets or predicates
wenzelm@24800
  1563
    is no longer separated, abbreviations involving the newly
wenzelm@24800
  1564
    introduced sets or predicates must be specified together with the
wenzelm@24800
  1565
    introduction rules after the 'where' keyword (see above), rather
wenzelm@24800
  1566
    than before the actual inductive definition.
wenzelm@24800
  1567
wenzelm@24800
  1568
  - The variables in induction and elimination rules are now
wenzelm@24800
  1569
    quantified in the order of their occurrence in the introduction
wenzelm@24800
  1570
    rules, rather than in alphabetical order. Since this may break
wenzelm@24800
  1571
    some proofs, these proofs either have to be repaired, e.g. by
wenzelm@24800
  1572
    reordering the variables a_i_1 ... a_i_{k_i} in Isar 'case'
wenzelm@24800
  1573
    statements of the form
berghofe@23783
  1574
berghofe@23783
  1575
      case (rule_i a_i_1 ... a_i_{k_i})
berghofe@23783
  1576
berghofe@23783
  1577
    or the old order of quantification has to be restored by explicitly adding
berghofe@23783
  1578
    meta-level quantifiers in the introduction rules, i.e.
berghofe@23783
  1579
berghofe@23783
  1580
      | rule_i: "!!a_i_1 ... a_i_{k_i}. ... ==> p z_1 ... z_m t_i_1 ... t_i_n"
berghofe@23783
  1581
berghofe@23783
  1582
  - The format of the elimination rules is now
berghofe@23783
  1583
berghofe@23783
  1584
      p z_1 ... z_m x_1 ... x_n ==>
berghofe@23783

        ==> ... ==> P
berghofe@23783
  1587

      x : s z_1 ... z_m ==>
berghofe@23783

wenzelm@24800
  1600
    This may require terms in goals to be expanded to n-tuples
wenzelm@24800
  1601
    (e.g. using case_tac or simplification with the split_paired_all
wenzelm@24800
  1602
    rule) before the above elimination rule is applicable.
wenzelm@24800
  1603
wenzelm@24800
  1604
  - The elimination or case analysis rules for (mutually) inductive
wenzelm@24800
  1605
    sets or predicates are now called "p_1.cases" ... "p_k.cases". The
wenzelm@24800
  1606
    list of rules "p_1_..._p_k.elims" is no longer available.
berghofe@23783
  1607
krauss@25198
  1608
* New package "function"/"fun" for general recursive functions,
krauss@25198
  1609
supporting mutual and nested recursion, definitions in local contexts,
krauss@25198
  1610
more general pattern matching and partiality. See HOL/ex/Fundefs.thy
krauss@25198
  1611
for small examples, and the separate tutorial on the function
krauss@25198
  1612
package. The old recdef "package" is still available as before, but
krauss@25198
  1613
users are encouraged to use the new package.
krauss@25198
  1614
krauss@25198
  1615
* Method "lexicographic_order" automatically synthesizes termination
krauss@25198
  1616
relations as lexicographic combinations of size measures. 
krauss@25198
  1617
wenzelm@24800
  1618
* Case-expressions allow arbitrary constructor-patterns (including
wenzelm@24800
  1619
"_") and take their order into account, like in functional
wenzelm@24800
  1620
programming.  Internally, this is translated into nested
wenzelm@24800
  1621
case-expressions; missing cases are added and mapped to the predefined
wenzelm@24800
  1622
constant "undefined". In complicated cases printing may no longer show
wenzelm@24800
  1623
the original input but the internal form. Lambda-abstractions allow
wenzelm@24800
  1624
the same form of pattern matching: "% pat1 => e1 | ..." is an
wenzelm@24800
  1625
abbreviation for "%x. case x of pat1 => e1 | ..." where x is a new
wenzelm@24800
  1626
variable.
nipkow@23564
  1627
huffman@23468
  1628
* IntDef: The constant "int :: nat => int" has been removed; now "int"
wenzelm@24800
  1629
is an abbreviation for "of_nat :: nat => int". The simplification
wenzelm@24800
  1630
rules for "of_nat" have been changed to work like "int" did
wenzelm@24800
  1631
previously.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY:
huffman@23468
  1632
  - "of_nat (Suc m)" simplifies to "1 + of_nat m" instead of "of_nat m + 1"
huffman@23468
  1633
  - of_nat_diff and of_nat_mult are no longer default simp rules
huffman@23377

  1635
* Method "algebra" solves polynomial equations over (semi)rings using
wenzelm@24800
  1636
Groebner bases. The (semi)ring structure is defined by locales and the
wenzelm@24800
  1637
tool setup depends on that generic context. Installing the method for
wenzelm@24800
  1638
a specific type involves instantiating the locale and possibly adding
wenzelm@24800
  1639
declarations for computation on the coefficients.  The method is
wenzelm@24800
  1640
already instantiated for natural numbers and for the axiomatic class
wenzelm@24800
  1641
of idoms with numerals.  See also the paper by Chaieb and Wenzel at
wenzelm@24800
  1642
CALCULEMUS 2007 for the general principles underlying this
wenzelm@24800
  1643
architecture of context-aware proof-tools.
wenzelm@24800
  1644
wenzelm@25033
  1645
* Method "ferrack" implements quantifier elimination over
wenzelm@25033
  1646
special-purpose dense linear orders using locales (analogous to
wenzelm@25033
  1647
"algebra"). The method is already installed for class
wenzelm@25033
  1648
{ordered_field,recpower,number_ring} which subsumes real, hyperreal,
wenzelm@25033
  1649
rat, etc.
wenzelm@25033
  1650
wenzelm@24800
  1651
* Former constant "List.op @" now named "List.append".  Use ML
wenzelm@24800
  1652
antiquotations @{const_name List.append} or @{term " ... @ ... "} to
wenzelm@24800
  1653
circumvent possible incompatibilities when working on ML level.
wenzelm@24800
  1654
haftmann@24996
  1655
* primrec: missing cases mapped to "undefined" instead of "arbitrary".
haftmann@22845
  1656
wenzelm@24800
  1657
* New function listsum :: 'a list => 'a for arbitrary monoids.
wenzelm@24800
  1658
Special syntax: "SUM x <- xs. f x" (and latex variants)
wenzelm@24800
  1659
wenzelm@24800
  1660
* New syntax for Haskell-like list comprehension (input only), eg.
wenzelm@25177
  1661
[(x,y). x <- xs, y <- ys, x ~= y], see also src/HOL/List.thy.
wenzelm@24800
  1662
wenzelm@24800
  1663
* The special syntax for function "filter" has changed from [x :
wenzelm@24800
  1664
xs. P] to [x <- xs. P] to avoid an ambiguity caused by list
wenzelm@24800
  1665
comprehension syntax, and for uniformity.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  1666
wenzelm@24800
  1667
* [a..b] is now defined for arbitrary linear orders.  It used to be
wenzelm@24800
  1668
defined on nat only, as an abbreviation for [a..<Suc b]
wenzelm@24800
  1669
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  1670
wenzelm@24800
  1671
* Renamed lemma "set_take_whileD"  to "set_takeWhileD".
wenzelm@24800
  1672
wenzelm@25177
  1673
* New functions "sorted" and "sort" in src/HOL/List.thy.
wenzelm@24800
  1674
wenzelm@24800
  1675
* New lemma collection field_simps (an extension of ring_simps) for
wenzelm@24800
  1676
manipulating (in)equations involving division. Multiplies with all
wenzelm@24800
  1677
denominators that can be proved to be non-zero (in equations) or
wenzelm@24800
  1678
positive/negative (in inequations).
nipkow@23480
  1679
nipkow@23480
  1680
* Lemma collections ring_eq_simps, group_eq_simps and ring_distrib
wenzelm@24800
  1681
have been improved and renamed to ring_simps, group_simps and
wenzelm@24800
  1682
ring_distribs.  Removed lemmas field_xyz in theory Ring_and_Field
wenzelm@24800
  1683
because they were subsumed by lemmas xyz.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  1684
wenzelm@25177
  1685
* Theory Library/Commutative_Ring: switched from recdef to function
wenzelm@24800
  1686
package; constants add, mul, pow now curried.  Infix syntax for
wenzelm@24800
  1687
algebraic operations.
haftmann@22735
  1688
wenzelm@24800
  1689
* Dropped redundant lemma def_imp_eq in favor of meta_eq_to_obj_eq.
haftmann@22218
  1690
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@22218
  1691
wenzelm@24800
  1692
* Dropped redundant lemma if_def2 in favor of if_bool_eq_conj.
haftmann@22218
  1693
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@22218
  1694
wenzelm@22126
  1695
* HOL/records: generalised field-update to take a function on the
wenzelm@22126
  1696
field rather than the new value: r(|A := x|) is translated to A_update
wenzelm@22126
  1697
(K x) r The K-combinator that is internally used is called K_record.
schirmer@21226
  1698
INCOMPATIBILITY: Usage of the plain update functions has to be
schirmer@21226
  1699
adapted.
schirmer@21226
  1700
 
wenzelm@24800
  1701
* Class "semiring_0" now contains annihilation axioms x * 0 = 0 and 0
wenzelm@24800
  1702
* x = 0, which are required for a semiring.  Richer structures do not
wenzelm@24800
  1703
inherit from semiring_0 anymore, because this property is a theorem
wenzelm@24800
  1704
there, not an axiom.  INCOMPATIBILITY: In instances of semiring_0,
wenzelm@24800
  1705
there is more to prove, but this is mostly trivial.
wenzelm@24800
  1706
wenzelm@24800
  1707
* Class "recpower" is generalized to arbitrary monoids, not just
wenzelm@24800
  1708
commutative semirings.  INCOMPATIBILITY: may need to incorporate
haftmann@25163
  1709
commutativity or semiring properties additionally.
haftmann@21215
  1710
haftmann@21099
  1711
* Constant "List.list_all2" in List.thy now uses authentic syntax.
wenzelm@24800
  1712
INCOMPATIBILITY: translations containing list_all2 may go wrong,
wenzelm@24800
  1713
better use 'abbreviation'.
wenzelm@24800
  1714
wenzelm@24800
  1715
* Renamed constant "List.op mem" to "List.member".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  1716
wenzelm@22126
  1717
* Numeral syntax: type 'bin' which was a mere type copy of 'int' has
wenzelm@24800
  1718
been abandoned in favour of plain 'int'.  INCOMPATIBILITY --
wenzelm@22126
  1719
significant changes for setting up numeral syntax for types:
wenzelm@24800
  1720
  - New constants Numeral.pred and Numeral.succ instead
haftmann@20485
  1721
      of former Numeral.bin_pred and Numeral.bin_succ.
haftmann@20485
  1722
  - Use integer operations instead of bin_add, bin_mult and so on.
haftmann@20485
  1723
  - Numeral simplification theorems named Numeral.numeral_simps instead of Bin_simps.
haftmann@20485
  1724
  - ML structure Bin_Simprocs now named Int_Numeral_Base_Simprocs.
haftmann@20485
  1725
wenzelm@25177
  1726
See src/HOL/Integ/IntArith.thy for an example setup.
wenzelm@25177
  1727
wenzelm@25177
  1728
* Command 'normal_form' computes the normal form of a term that may
wenzelm@25177
  1729
contain free variables.  For example ``normal_form "rev [a, b, c]"''
wenzelm@25177
  1730
produces ``[b, c, a]'' (without proof).  This command is suitable for
wenzelm@25177
  1731
heavy-duty computations because the functions are compiled to ML
wenzelm@25177
  1732
first.  Correspondingly, a method "normalization" is provided.  See
wenzelm@25177
  1733
further src/HOL/ex/NormalForm.thy and src/Tools/nbe.ML.
nipkow@19895
  1734
wenzelm@17996
  1735
* Alternative iff syntax "A <-> B" for equality on bool (with priority
wenzelm@17996
  1736
25 like -->); output depends on the "iff" print_mode, the default is
wenzelm@17996
  1737
"A = B" (with priority 50).
wenzelm@17996
  1738
wenzelm@21265
  1739
* Relations less (<) and less_eq (<=) are also available on type bool.
wenzelm@21265
  1740
Modified syntax to disallow nesting without explicit parentheses,
wenzelm@24800
  1741
e.g. "(x < y) < z" or "x < (y < z)", but NOT "x < y < z".  Potential
wenzelm@24800
  1742
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@21265
  1743
nipkow@18674
  1744
* "LEAST x:A. P" expands to "LEAST x. x:A & P" (input only).
nipkow@18674
  1745
krauss@20716
  1746
* Relation composition operator "op O" now has precedence 75 and binds
krauss@20716
  1747
stronger than union and intersection. INCOMPATIBILITY.
krauss@20716
  1748
wenzelm@22126
  1749
* The old set interval syntax "{m..n(}" (and relatives) has been
wenzelm@22126
  1750
removed.  Use "{m..<n}" (and relatives) instead.
nipkow@19377
  1751
wenzelm@17865
  1752
* In the context of the assumption "~(s = t)" the Simplifier rewrites
wenzelm@24800
  1753
"t = s" to False (by simproc "neq").  INCOMPATIBILITY, consider using
wenzelm@24800
  1754
``declare [[simproc del: neq]]''.
wenzelm@24800
  1755
wenzelm@24800
  1756
* Simplifier: "m dvd n" where m and n are numbers is evaluated to
wenzelm@24800
  1757
True/False.
wenzelm@24800
  1758
wenzelm@24800
  1759
* Theorem Cons_eq_map_conv no longer declared as "simp".
nipkow@19211
  1760
ballarin@19279
  1761
* Theorem setsum_mult renamed to setsum_right_distrib.
ballarin@19279
  1762
nipkow@19211
  1763
* Prefer ex1I over ex_ex1I in single-step reasoning, e.g. by the
wenzelm@22126
  1764
``rule'' method.
wenzelm@22126
  1765
wenzelm@24800
  1766
* Reimplemented methods "sat" and "satx", with several improvements:
wenzelm@24800
  1767
goals no longer need to be stated as "<prems> ==> False", equivalences
wenzelm@24800
  1768
(i.e. "=" on type bool) are handled, variable names of the form
wenzelm@24800
  1769
"lit_<n>" are no longer reserved, significant speedup.
wenzelm@24800
  1770
wenzelm@24800
  1771
* Methods "sat" and "satx" can now replay MiniSat proof traces.
wenzelm@22126
  1772
zChaff is still supported as well.
wenzelm@22126
  1773
wenzelm@22126
  1774
* 'inductive' and 'datatype': provide projections of mutual rules,
wenzelm@22126
  1775
bundled as foo_bar.inducts;
wenzelm@22126
  1776
wenzelm@22126
  1777
* Library: moved theories Parity, GCD, Binomial, Infinite_Set to
wenzelm@22126
  1778
Library.
wenzelm@21256
  1779
wenzelm@21256
  1780
* Library: moved theory Accessible_Part to main HOL.
wenzelm@19572
  1781
wenzelm@18446
  1782
* Library: added theory Coinductive_List of potentially infinite lists
wenzelm@18446
  1783
as greatest fixed-point.
wenzelm@18399
  1784
wenzelm@19254
  1785
* Library: added theory AssocList which implements (finite) maps as
schirmer@19252
  1786
association lists.
webertj@17809
  1787
wenzelm@24800
  1788
* Method "evaluation" solves goals (i.e. a boolean expression)
wenzelm@24800
  1789
efficiently by compiling it to ML.  The goal is "proved" (via an
wenzelm@24800
  1790
oracle) if it evaluates to True.
wenzelm@20807
  1791
wenzelm@20807
  1792
* Linear arithmetic now splits certain operators (e.g. min, max, abs)
wenzelm@24800
  1793
also when invoked by the simplifier.  This results in the Simplifier
wenzelm@24800
  1794
being more powerful on arithmetic goals.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  1795
Configuration option fast_arith_split_limit=0 recovers the old
wenzelm@24800
  1796
behavior.
webertj@20217
  1797
wenzelm@22126
  1798
* Support for hex (0x20) and binary (0b1001) numerals.
wenzelm@19254
  1799
wenzelm@20807
  1800
* New method: reify eqs (t), where eqs are equations for an
wenzelm@20807
  1801
interpretation I :: 'a list => 'b => 'c and t::'c is an optional
wenzelm@20807
  1802
parameter, computes a term s::'b and a list xs::'a list and proves the
wenzelm@20807
  1803
theorem I xs s = t. This is also known as reification or quoting. The
wenzelm@20807
  1804
resulting theorem is applied to the subgoal to substitute t with I xs
wenzelm@20807
  1805
s.  If t is omitted, the subgoal itself is reified.
wenzelm@20807
  1806
wenzelm@20807
  1807
* New method: reflection corr_thm eqs (t). The parameters eqs and (t)
wenzelm@20807
  1808
are as explained above. corr_thm is a theorem for I vs (f t) = I vs t,
wenzelm@20807
  1809
where f is supposed to be a computable function (in the sense of code
wenzelm@20807
  1810
generattion). The method uses reify to compute s and xs as above then
wenzelm@20807
  1811
applies corr_thm and uses normalization by evaluation to "prove" f s =

  1818
* HOL-Statespace: ``State Spaces: The Locale Way'' introduces a
schirmer@25409
  1819
command 'statespace' that is similar to 'record', but introduces an
wenzelm@25397
  1820
abstract specification based on the locale infrastructure instead of
wenzelm@25397
  1821
HOL types.  This leads to extra flexibility in composing state spaces,
wenzelm@25397
  1822
in particular multiple inheritance and renaming of components.

* Hyperreal: Functions root and sqrt are now defined on negative real
huffman@22971
  1828
inputs so that root n (- x) = - root n x and sqrt (- x) = - sqrt x.
huffman@22971
  1829
Nonnegativity side conditions have been removed from many lemmas, so
huffman@22971
  1830
that more subgoals may now be solved by simplification; potential

INCOMPATIBILITY.
huffman@22971

and norm :: 'a => real.
huffman@21791
  1836
wenzelm@24800
  1837
* Real: constant of_real :: real => 'a::real_algebra_1 injects from
wenzelm@24800
  1838
reals into other types. The overloaded constant Reals :: 'a set is now

  1909
(even on SML/NJ).
wenzelm@24643
  1910
wenzelm@22138
  1911
* ML within Isar: antiquotations allow to embed statically-checked
wenzelm@22138
  1912
formal entities in the source, referring to the context available at
wenzelm@22138
  1913
compile-time.  For example:

The same works for sources being ``used'' within an Isar context.
wenzelm@22151
  1938
wenzelm@22152
  1939
* ML in Isar: improved error reporting; extra verbosity with
wenzelm@24706
  1940
ML_Context.trace enabled.
wenzelm@22152
  1941
wenzelm@19032
  1942
* Pure/General/table.ML: the join operations now works via exceptions
wenzelm@24706
  1943
DUP/SAME instead of type option. This is simpler in simple cases, and
wenzelm@19081
  1944
admits slightly more efficient complex applications.
wenzelm@18446
  1945
wenzelm@24800
  1946
* Pure: 'advanced' translation functions (parse_translation etc.) now
wenzelm@24800
  1947
use Context.generic instead of just theory.
wenzelm@24800
  1948
wenzelm@18642
  1949
* Pure: datatype Context.generic joins theory/Proof.context and
wenzelm@18644
  1950
provides some facilities for code that works in either kind of
wenzelm@18642
  1951
context, notably GenericDataFun for uniform theory and proof data.
wenzelm@18642
  1952
wenzelm@18737
  1953
* Pure: simplified internal attribute type, which is now always
wenzelm@24706
  1954
Context.generic * thm -> Context.generic * thm. Global (theory) vs.
wenzelm@24706
  1955
local (Proof.context) attributes have been discontinued, while
wenzelm@24706
  1956
minimizing code duplication. Thm.rule_attribute and
wenzelm@24706
  1957
Thm.declaration_attribute build canonical attributes; see also structure
wenzelm@24706
  1958
Context for further operations on Context.generic, notably
wenzelm@24706
  1959
GenericDataFun. INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt attribute type
wenzelm@19006
  1960
declarations and definitions.
wenzelm@19006
  1961
wenzelm@24800
  1962
* Context data interfaces (Theory/Proof/GenericDataFun): removed
wenzelm@24800
  1963
name/print, uninitialized data defaults to ad-hoc copy of empty value,
wenzelm@24800
  1964
init only required for impure data. INCOMPATIBILITY: empty really need
wenzelm@24800
  1965
to be empty (no dependencies on theory content!)
wenzelm@24800
  1966
wenzelm@19508
  1967
* Pure/kernel: consts certification ignores sort constraints given in
wenzelm@24800
  1968
signature declarations. (This information is not relevant to the
wenzelm@24800
  1969
logic, but only for type inference.) SIGNIFICANT INTERNAL CHANGE,
wenzelm@24800
  1970
potential INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@19508
  1971
wenzelm@19508
  1972
* Pure: axiomatic type classes are now purely definitional, with
wenzelm@19508
  1973
explicit proofs of class axioms and super class relations performed
wenzelm@24706
  1974
internally. See Pure/axclass.ML for the main internal interfaces --
wenzelm@19508
  1975
notably AxClass.define_class supercedes AxClass.add_axclass, and
wenzelm@24706
  1976
AxClass.axiomatize_class/classrel/arity supersede
wenzelm@19508
  1977
Sign.add_classes/classrel/arities.
wenzelm@19508
  1978
wenzelm@19006
  1979
* Pure/Isar: Args/Attrib parsers operate on Context.generic --
wenzelm@19006
  1980
global/local versions on theory vs. Proof.context have been
wenzelm@19006
  1981
discontinued; Attrib.syntax and Method.syntax have been adapted
wenzelm@19006
  1982
accordingly.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt parser expressions for
wenzelm@19006
  1983
attributes, methods, etc.
wenzelm@18642
  1984
wenzelm@18446
  1985
* Pure: several functions of signature "... -> theory -> theory * ..."
wenzelm@18446
  1986
have been reoriented to "... -> theory -> ... * theory" in order to
wenzelm@18446
  1987
allow natural usage in combination with the ||>, ||>>, |-> and
wenzelm@18446
  1988
fold_map combinators.
haftmann@18051
  1989
wenzelm@21647
  1990
* Pure: official theorem names (closed derivations) and additional
wenzelm@21647
  1991
comments (tags) are now strictly separate.  Name hints -- which are
wenzelm@21647
  1992
maintained as tags -- may be attached any time without affecting the
wenzelm@21647
  1993
derivation.
wenzelm@21647
  1994
wenzelm@18020
  1995
* Pure: primitive rule lift_rule now takes goal cterm instead of an
wenzelm@18145
  1996
actual goal state (thm).  Use Thm.lift_rule (Thm.cprem_of st i) to
wenzelm@18020
  1997
achieve the old behaviour.
wenzelm@18020
  1998
wenzelm@18020
  1999
* Pure: the "Goal" constant is now called "prop", supporting a
wenzelm@18020
  2000
slightly more general idea of ``protecting'' meta-level rule
wenzelm@18020
  2001
statements.
wenzelm@18020
  2002
wenzelm@20040
  2003
* Pure: Logic.(un)varify only works in a global context, which is now
wenzelm@20040
  2004
enforced instead of silently assumed.  INCOMPATIBILITY, may use
wenzelm@20040
  2005
Logic.legacy_(un)varify as temporary workaround.
wenzelm@20040
  2006
wenzelm@20090
  2007
* Pure: structure Name provides scalable operations for generating
wenzelm@20090
  2008
internal variable names, notably Name.variants etc.  This replaces
wenzelm@20090
  2009
some popular functions from term.ML:
wenzelm@20090
  2010
wenzelm@20090
  2011
  Term.variant		->  Name.variant
wenzelm@24800
  2012
  Term.variantlist	->  Name.variant_list
wenzelm@20090
  2013
  Term.invent_names	->  Name.invent_list
wenzelm@20090
  2014
wenzelm@20090
  2015
Note that low-level renaming rarely occurs in new code -- operations
wenzelm@20090
  2016
from structure Variable are used instead (see below).
wenzelm@20090
  2017
wenzelm@20040
  2018
* Pure: structure Variable provides fundamental operations for proper
wenzelm@20040
  2019
treatment of fixed/schematic variables in a context.  For example,
wenzelm@20040
  2020
Variable.import introduces fixes for schematics of given facts and
wenzelm@20040
  2021
Variable.export reverses the effect (up to renaming) -- this replaces
wenzelm@20040
  2022
various freeze_thaw operations.
wenzelm@20040
  2023
wenzelm@18567
  2024
* Pure: structure Goal provides simple interfaces for
wenzelm@17981
  2025
init/conclude/finish and tactical prove operations (replacing former
wenzelm@20040
  2026
Tactic.prove).  Goal.prove is the canonical way to prove results
wenzelm@20040
  2027
within a given context; Goal.prove_global is a degraded version for
wenzelm@20040
  2028
theory level goals, including a global Drule.standard.  Note that
wenzelm@20040
  2029
OldGoals.prove_goalw_cterm has long been obsolete, since it is
wenzelm@20040
  2030
ill-behaved in a local proof context (e.g. with local fixes/assumes or
wenzelm@20040
  2031
in a locale context).
wenzelm@17981
  2032
wenzelm@24706
  2033
* Pure/Syntax: generic interfaces for parsing (Syntax.parse_term etc.)
wenzelm@24706
  2034
and type checking (Syntax.check_term etc.), with common combinations
wenzelm@24706
  2035
(Syntax.read_term etc.). These supersede former Sign.read_term etc.
wenzelm@24706
  2036
which are considered legacy and await removal.
wenzelm@24706
  2037
wenzelm@24920
  2038
* Pure/Syntax: generic interfaces for type unchecking
wenzelm@24920
  2039
(Syntax.uncheck_terms etc.) and unparsing (Syntax.unparse_term etc.),
wenzelm@24920
  2040
with common combinations (Syntax.pretty_term, Syntax.string_of_term
wenzelm@24920
  2041
etc.).  Former Sign.pretty_term, Sign.string_of_term etc. are still
wenzelm@24924
  2042
available for convenience, but refer to the very same operations using
wenzelm@24924
  2043
a mere theory instead of a full context.
wenzelm@24920
  2044
wenzelm@18815
  2045
* Isar: simplified treatment of user-level errors, using exception
wenzelm@18687
  2046
ERROR of string uniformly.  Function error now merely raises ERROR,
wenzelm@18686
  2047
without any side effect on output channels.  The Isar toplevel takes
wenzelm@18686
  2048
care of proper display of ERROR exceptions.  ML code may use plain
wenzelm@18686
  2049
handle/can/try; cat_error may be used to concatenate errors like this:
wenzelm@18686
  2050
wenzelm@18686
  2051
  ... handle ERROR msg => cat_error msg "..."
wenzelm@18686
  2052
wenzelm@18686
  2053
Toplevel ML code (run directly or through the Isar toplevel) may be
wenzelm@18687
  2054
embedded into the Isar toplevel with exception display/debug like
wenzelm@18687
  2055
this:
wenzelm@18686
  2056
wenzelm@18686
  2057
  Isar.toplevel (fn () => ...)
wenzelm@18686
  2058
wenzelm@18686
  2059
INCOMPATIBILITY, removed special transform_error facilities, removed
wenzelm@18686
  2060
obsolete variants of user-level exceptions (ERROR_MESSAGE,
wenzelm@18686
  2061
Context.PROOF, ProofContext.CONTEXT, Proof.STATE, ProofHistory.FAIL)
wenzelm@18686
  2062
-- use plain ERROR instead.
wenzelm@18686
  2063
wenzelm@18815
  2064
* Isar: theory setup now has type (theory -> theory), instead of a
wenzelm@18722
  2065
list.  INCOMPATIBILITY, may use #> to compose setup functions.
wenzelm@18722
  2066
wenzelm@24706
  2067
* Isar: ML toplevel pretty printer for type Proof.context, subject to
wenzelm@24706
  2068
ProofContext.debug/verbose flags.
wenzelm@18815
  2069
wenzelm@18815
  2070
* Isar: Toplevel.theory_to_proof admits transactions that modify the
wenzelm@18815
  2071
theory before entering a proof state.  Transactions now always see a
wenzelm@18815
  2072
quasi-functional intermediate checkpoint, both in interactive and
wenzelm@18590
  2073
batch mode.
wenzelm@18567
  2074
wenzelm@24867
  2075
* Isar: simplified interfaces for outer syntax.  Renamed

* Simplifier: the simpset of a running simplification process now
wenzelm@17878
  2081
contains a proof context (cf. Simplifier.the_context), which is the
wenzelm@17878
  2082
very context that the initial simpset has been retrieved from (by
wenzelm@17890
  2083
simpset_of/local_simpset_of).  Consequently, all plug-in components
wenzelm@17878
  2084
(solver, looper etc.) may depend on arbitrary proof data.
wenzelm@17878
  2085
wenzelm@17878
  2086
* Simplifier.inherit_context inherits the proof context (plus the
wenzelm@17878
  2087
local bounds) of the current simplification process; any simproc
wenzelm@17878
  2088
etc. that calls the Simplifier recursively should do this!  Removed
wenzelm@17878
  2089
former Simplifier.inherit_bounds, which is already included here --
wenzelm@17890
  2090
INCOMPATIBILITY.  Tools based on low-level rewriting may even have to
wenzelm@17890
  2091
specify an explicit context using Simplifier.context/theory_context.
wenzelm@17878

wenzelm@17878
  2094
change_simpset/claset for modifying the simpset/claset reference of a

Poly/ML 5.1.  The theory loader exploits parallelism when processing
wenzelm@24800
  2116
independent theories, according to the given theory header

usedir option -M or the "max-threads" setting in Proof General. A
wenzelm@24800
  2119
speedup factor of 1.5--3.5 can be expected on a 4-core machine, and up
wenzelm@24800
  2120
to 6 on a 8-core machine.  User-code needs to observe certain

* Theory headers: the new header syntax for Isar theories is
nipkow@15130
  2132
nipkow@15130
  2133
  theory <name>
wenzelm@16234
  2134
  imports <theory1> ... <theoryN>

nipkow@15130
  2137
wenzelm@16234
  2138
where the 'uses' part is optional.  The previous syntax
wenzelm@16234
  2139
wenzelm@16234
  2140
  theory <name> = <theory1> + ... + <theoryN>:
wenzelm@16234
  2141
wenzelm@16717
  2142
will disappear in the next release.  Use isatool fixheaders to convert
wenzelm@16717
  2143
existing theory files.  Note that there is no change in ancient
wenzelm@17371
  2144
non-Isar theories now, but these will disappear soon.
nipkow@15130

  2147
relative and absolute paths.
wenzelm@16234

wenzelm@17408
  2149
* Command 'find_theorems' searches for a list of criteria instead of a
wenzelm@17408
  2150
list of constants. Known criteria are: intro, elim, dest, name:string,
wenzelm@17408
  2151
simp:term, and any term. Criteria can be preceded by '-' to select
wenzelm@17408
  2152
theorems that do not match. Intro, elim, dest select theorems that
wenzelm@17408
  2153
match the current goal, name:s selects theorems whose fully qualified
wenzelm@17408
  2154
name contain s, and simp:term selects all simplification rules whose
wenzelm@17408
  2155
lhs match term.  Any other term is interpreted as pattern and selects
wenzelm@17408
  2156
all theorems matching the pattern. Available in ProofGeneral under
wenzelm@17408
  2157
'ProofGeneral -> Find Theorems' or C-c C-f.  Example:
wenzelm@16234
  2158
wenzelm@17275
  2159
  C-c C-f (100) "(_::nat) + _ + _" intro -name: "HOL."
wenzelm@16234
  2160
wenzelm@16234
  2161
prints the last 100 theorems matching the pattern "(_::nat) + _ + _",
wenzelm@16234
  2162
matching the current goal as introduction rule and not having "HOL."
wenzelm@16234
  2163

wenzelm@16013
  2164

  2166
'find_theorems'; INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17408
  2167
wenzelm@17385
  2168
* Communication with Proof General is now 8bit clean, which means that
wenzelm@17385
  2169
Unicode text in UTF-8 encoding may be used within theory texts (both
wenzelm@17408
  2170
formal and informal parts).  Cf. option -U of the Isabelle Proof
wenzelm@17538
  2171

* Improved efficiency of the Simplifier and, to a lesser degree, the
wenzelm@17425

*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@15703
  2182
wenzelm@16234
  2183
* Commands 'display_drafts' and 'print_drafts' perform simple output
wenzelm@16234
  2184
of raw sources.  Only those symbols that do not require additional
wenzelm@16234
  2185
LaTeX packages (depending on comments in isabellesym.sty) are
wenzelm@16234
  2186
displayed properly, everything else is left verbatim.  isatool display
wenzelm@16234
  2187
and isatool print are used as front ends (these are subject to the
wenzelm@16234
  2188
DVI/PDF_VIEWER and PRINT_COMMAND settings, respectively).
wenzelm@16234
  2189
wenzelm@17047
  2190
* Command tags control specific markup of certain regions of text,
wenzelm@17047
  2191
notably folding and hiding.  Predefined tags include "theory" (for
wenzelm@17047
  2192
theory begin and end), "proof" for proof commands, and "ML" for
wenzelm@17047
  2193
commands involving ML code; the additional tags "visible" and
wenzelm@17047
  2194
"invisible" are unused by default.  Users may give explicit tag
wenzelm@17047
  2195
specifications in the text, e.g. ''by %invisible (auto)''.  The
wenzelm@17047
  2196
interpretation of tags is determined by the LaTeX job during document
wenzelm@17047
  2197
preparation: see option -V of isatool usedir, or options -n and -t of
wenzelm@17047
  2198
isatool document, or even the LaTeX macros \isakeeptag, \isafoldtag,
wenzelm@17047
  2199
\isadroptag.
wenzelm@17047
  2200
wenzelm@17047
  2201
Several document versions may be produced at the same time via isatool
wenzelm@17047
  2202
usedir (the generated index.html will link all of them).  Typical
wenzelm@17047
  2203
specifications include ''-V document=theory,proof,ML'' to present
wenzelm@17047
  2204
theory/proof/ML parts faithfully, ''-V outline=/proof,/ML'' to fold
wenzelm@17047
  2205
proof and ML commands, and ''-V mutilated=-theory,-proof,-ML'' to omit
wenzelm@17047
  2206
these parts without any formal replacement text.  The Isabelle site
wenzelm@17047
  2207
default settings produce ''document'' and ''outline'' versions as
wenzelm@17047
  2208
specified above.
wenzelm@16234
  2209
haftmann@17402
  2210
* Several new antiquotations:
wenzelm@15979
  2211
wenzelm@15979
  2212
  @{term_type term} prints a term with its type annotated;
wenzelm@15979
  2213
wenzelm@15979
  2214
  @{typeof term} prints the type of a term;
wenzelm@15979
  2215
wenzelm@16234
  2216
  @{const const} is the same as @{term const}, but checks that the
wenzelm@16234
  2217
  argument is a known logical constant;
wenzelm@15979
  2218
wenzelm@15979
  2219
  @{term_style style term} and @{thm_style style thm} print a term or
wenzelm@16234
  2220
  theorem applying a "style" to it
wenzelm@16234
  2221
wenzelm@17117
  2222
  @{ML text}
wenzelm@17117
  2223
wenzelm@16234
  2224
Predefined styles are 'lhs' and 'rhs' printing the lhs/rhs of
wenzelm@16234
  2225
definitions, equations, inequations etc., 'concl' printing only the
schirmer@17393
  2226
conclusion of a meta-logical statement theorem, and 'prem1' .. 'prem19'
wenzelm@16234
  2227
to print the specified premise.  TermStyle.add_style provides an ML
wenzelm@16234
  2228
interface for introducing further styles.  See also the "LaTeX Sugar"
wenzelm@17117
  2229
document practical applications.  The ML antiquotation prints
wenzelm@17117
  2230
type-checked ML expressions verbatim.
wenzelm@16234
  2231
wenzelm@17259
  2232
* Markup commands 'chapter', 'section', 'subsection', 'subsubsection',
wenzelm@17259
  2233
and 'text' support optional locale specification '(in loc)', which
wenzelm@17269
  2234
specifies the default context for interpreting antiquotations.  For
wenzelm@17269
  2235
example: 'text (in lattice) {* @{thm inf_assoc}*}'.
wenzelm@17259
  2236
wenzelm@17259
  2237
* Option 'locale=NAME' of antiquotations specifies an alternative
wenzelm@17259
  2238
context interpreting the subsequent argument.  For example: @{thm
wenzelm@17269
  2239
[locale=lattice] inf_assoc}.
wenzelm@17259
  2240
wenzelm@17097
  2241
* Proper output of proof terms (@{prf ...} and @{full_prf ...}) within
wenzelm@17097
  2242
a proof context.
wenzelm@17097
  2243
wenzelm@17097
  2244
* Proper output of antiquotations for theory commands involving a
wenzelm@17097
  2245
proof context (such as 'locale' or 'theorem (in loc) ...').
wenzelm@17097
  2246
wenzelm@17193
  2247
* Delimiters of outer tokens (string etc.) now produce separate LaTeX
wenzelm@17193
  2248
macros (\isachardoublequoteopen, isachardoublequoteclose etc.).
wenzelm@17193
  2249
wenzelm@17193
  2250
* isatool usedir: new option -C (default true) controls whether option
wenzelm@17193
  2251
-D should include a copy of the original document directory; -C false
wenzelm@17193
  2252
prevents unwanted effects such as copying of administrative CVS data.

  2255
*** Pure ***
wenzelm@16234
  2256
wenzelm@16234
  2257
* Considerably improved version of 'constdefs' command.  Now performs
wenzelm@16234
  2258
automatic type-inference of declared constants; additional support for
wenzelm@16234
  2259
local structure declarations (cf. locales and HOL records), see also
wenzelm@16234
  2260
isar-ref manual.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY: need to observe strictly
wenzelm@16234
  2261
sequential dependencies of definitions within a single 'constdefs'
wenzelm@16234
  2262
section; moreover, the declared name needs to be an identifier.  If
wenzelm@16234
  2263
all fails, consider to fall back on 'consts' and 'defs' separately.
wenzelm@16234
  2264
wenzelm@16234
  2265
* Improved indexed syntax and implicit structures.  First of all,
wenzelm@16234
  2266
indexed syntax provides a notational device for subscripted
wenzelm@16234
  2267
application, using the new syntax \<^bsub>term\<^esub> for arbitrary
wenzelm@16234
  2268
expressions.  Secondly, in a local context with structure
wenzelm@16234
  2269
declarations, number indexes \<^sub>n or the empty index (default
wenzelm@16234
  2270
number 1) refer to a certain fixed variable implicitly; option
wenzelm@16234
  2271
show_structs controls printing of implicit structures.  Typical
wenzelm@16234
  2272
applications of these concepts involve record types and locales.
wenzelm@16234
  2273
wenzelm@16234
  2274
* New command 'no_syntax' removes grammar declarations (and
wenzelm@16234
  2275
translations) resulting from the given syntax specification, which is
wenzelm@16234
  2276
interpreted in the same manner as for the 'syntax' command.
wenzelm@16234
  2277
wenzelm@16234
  2278
* 'Advanced' translation functions (parse_translation etc.) may depend
wenzelm@16234
  2279
on the signature of the theory context being presently used for
wenzelm@16234
  2280
parsing/printing, see also isar-ref manual.
wenzelm@16234
  2281
wenzelm@16856
  2282
* Improved 'oracle' command provides a type-safe interface to turn an
wenzelm@16856
  2283
ML expression of type theory -> T -> term into a primitive rule of
wenzelm@16856
  2284
type theory -> T -> thm (i.e. the functionality of Thm.invoke_oracle
wenzelm@16856
  2285
is already included here); see also FOL/ex/IffExample.thy;
wenzelm@16856
  2286
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@16856
  2287
wenzelm@17275
  2288
* axclass: name space prefix for class "c" is now "c_class" (was "c"
wenzelm@17275
  2289
before); "cI" is no longer bound, use "c.intro" instead.
wenzelm@17275
  2290
INCOMPATIBILITY.  This change avoids clashes of fact bindings for
wenzelm@17275
  2291
axclasses vs. locales.
wenzelm@17275
  2292
wenzelm@16234
  2293
* Improved internal renaming of symbolic identifiers -- attach primes
wenzelm@16234
  2294
instead of base 26 numbers.
wenzelm@16234
  2295
wenzelm@16234
  2296
* New flag show_question_marks controls printing of leading question
wenzelm@16234
  2297
marks in schematic variable names.
wenzelm@16234
  2298
wenzelm@16234
  2299
* In schematic variable names, *any* symbol following \<^isub> or
wenzelm@16234
  2300
\<^isup> is now treated as part of the base name.  For example, the
wenzelm@16234
  2301
following works without printing of awkward ".0" indexes:
wenzelm@16234
  2302
wenzelm@16234
  2303
  lemma "x\<^isub>1 = x\<^isub>2 ==> x\<^isub>2 = x\<^isub>1"
wenzelm@16234
  2304
    by simp
wenzelm@16234
  2305
wenzelm@16234
  2306
* Inner syntax includes (*(*nested*) comments*).
wenzelm@16234
  2307
wenzelm@17548
  2308
* Pretty printer now supports unbreakable blocks, specified in mixfix
wenzelm@16234
  2309
annotations as "(00...)".
wenzelm@16234
  2310
wenzelm@16234
  2311
* Clear separation of logical types and nonterminals, where the latter
wenzelm@16234
  2312
may only occur in 'syntax' specifications or type abbreviations.
wenzelm@16234
  2313
Before that distinction was only partially implemented via type class
wenzelm@16234
  2314
"logic" vs. "{}".  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY in rare cases of improper
wenzelm@16234
  2315
use of 'types'/'consts' instead of 'nonterminals'/'syntax'.  Some very
wenzelm@16234
  2316
exotic syntax specifications may require further adaption
wenzelm@17691
  2317
(e.g. Cube/Cube.thy).
wenzelm@16234
  2318
wenzelm@16234
  2319
* Removed obsolete type class "logic", use the top sort {} instead.
wenzelm@16234
  2320
Note that non-logical types should be declared as 'nonterminals'
wenzelm@16234
  2321
rather than 'types'.  INCOMPATIBILITY for new object-logic
wenzelm@16234
  2322
specifications.
wenzelm@16234
  2323
ballarin@17095
  2324
* Attributes 'induct' and 'cases': type or set names may now be
ballarin@17095
  2325
locally fixed variables as well.
ballarin@17095
  2326
wenzelm@16234
  2327
* Simplifier: can now control the depth to which conditional rewriting
wenzelm@16234
  2328
is traced via the PG menu Isabelle -> Settings -> Trace Simp Depth
wenzelm@16234
  2329
Limit.
wenzelm@16234
  2330
wenzelm@16234
  2331
* Simplifier: simplification procedures may now take the current
wenzelm@16234
  2332
simpset into account (cf. Simplifier.simproc(_i) / mk_simproc
wenzelm@16234
  2333
interface), which is very useful for calling the Simplifier
wenzelm@16234
  2334
recursively.  Minor INCOMPATIBILITY: the 'prems' argument of simprocs
wenzelm@16234
  2335
is gone -- use prems_of_ss on the simpset instead.  Moreover, the
wenzelm@16234
  2336
low-level mk_simproc no longer applies Logic.varify internally, to
wenzelm@16234
  2337
allow for use in a context of fixed variables.
wenzelm@16234
  2338
wenzelm@16234
  2339
* thin_tac now works even if the assumption being deleted contains !!
wenzelm@16234
  2340
or ==>.  More generally, erule now works even if the major premise of
wenzelm@16234
  2341
the elimination rule contains !! or ==>.
wenzelm@16234
  2342
wenzelm@17597

* Method 'rules' has been renamed to 'iprover'. INCOMPATIBILITY.

wenzelm@16234
  2345
* Reorganized bootstrapping of the Pure theories; CPure is now derived
wenzelm@16234
  2346
from Pure, which contains all common declarations already.  Both
wenzelm@16234
  2347
theories are defined via plain Isabelle/Isar .thy files.
wenzelm@16234
  2348
INCOMPATIBILITY: elements of CPure (such as the CPure.intro /
wenzelm@16234
  2349
CPure.elim / CPure.dest attributes) now appear in the Pure name space;
wenzelm@16234
  2350
use isatool fixcpure to adapt your theory and ML sources.
wenzelm@16234
  2351
wenzelm@16234
  2352
* New syntax 'name(i-j, i-, i, ...)' for referring to specific
wenzelm@16234
  2353
selections of theorems in named facts via index ranges.
wenzelm@16234
  2354
wenzelm@17097
  2355
* 'print_theorems': in theory mode, really print the difference
wenzelm@17097
  2356
wrt. the last state (works for interactive theory development only),
wenzelm@17097
  2357
in proof mode print all local facts (cf. 'print_facts');
wenzelm@17097
  2358
wenzelm@17397
  2359
* 'hide': option '(open)' hides only base names.
wenzelm@17397
  2360
wenzelm@17275
  2361
* More efficient treatment of intermediate checkpoints in interactive
wenzelm@17275
  2362
theory development.
wenzelm@17275

wenzelm@17664
  2365
generation) and code_library (modular code generation, ML structures
wenzelm@17664
  2366
for each theory).  INCOMPATIBILITY: new keywords 'file' and 'contains'
wenzelm@17664
  2367
must be quoted when used as identifiers.
wenzelm@17664
  2368
wenzelm@17664
  2369
* New 'value' command for reading, evaluating and printing terms using
wenzelm@17664
  2370
the code generator.  INCOMPATIBILITY: command keyword 'value' must be
wenzelm@17664
  2371
quoted when used as identifier.

*** Locales ***
ballarin@17095
  2375
wenzelm@17385
  2376
* New commands for the interpretation of locale expressions in
wenzelm@17385
  2377
theories (1), locales (2) and proof contexts (3).  These generate
wenzelm@17385
  2378
proof obligations from the expression specification.  After the
wenzelm@17385
  2379
obligations have been discharged, theorems of the expression are added
wenzelm@17385
  2380
to the theory, target locale or proof context.  The synopsis of the
wenzelm@17385
  2381
commands is a follows:
wenzelm@17385
  2382
ballarin@17095
  2383
  (1) interpretation expr inst
ballarin@17095
  2384
  (2) interpretation target < expr
ballarin@17095
  2385
  (3) interpret expr inst
wenzelm@17385
  2386
ballarin@17095
  2387
Interpretation in theories and proof contexts require a parameter
ballarin@17095
  2388
instantiation of terms from the current context.  This is applied to
wenzelm@17385
  2389
specifications and theorems of the interpreted expression.
wenzelm@17385
  2390
Interpretation in locales only permits parameter renaming through the
wenzelm@17385
  2391
locale expression.  Interpretation is smart in that interpretations
wenzelm@17385
  2392
that are active already do not occur in proof obligations, neither are
wenzelm@17385
  2393
instantiated theorems stored in duplicate.  Use 'print_interps' to
wenzelm@17385
  2394
inspect active interpretations of a particular locale.  For details,
ballarin@17436
  2395
see the Isar Reference manual.  Examples can be found in
ballarin@17436
  2396
HOL/Finite_Set.thy and HOL/Algebra/UnivPoly.thy.
wenzelm@16234
  2397
wenzelm@16234
  2398
INCOMPATIBILITY: former 'instantiate' has been withdrawn, use
wenzelm@16234
  2399
'interpret' instead.
wenzelm@16234
  2400
wenzelm@17385
  2401
* New context element 'constrains' for adding type constraints to
wenzelm@17385
  2402
parameters.
wenzelm@17385
  2403
wenzelm@17385
  2404
* Context expressions: renaming of parameters with syntax
wenzelm@17385
  2405
redeclaration.
ballarin@17095
  2406
ballarin@17095
  2407
* Locale declaration: 'includes' disallowed.
ballarin@17095
  2408
wenzelm@16234
  2409
* Proper static binding of attribute syntax -- i.e. types / terms /
wenzelm@16234
  2410
facts mentioned as arguments are always those of the locale definition
wenzelm@16234
  2411
context, independently of the context of later invocations.  Moreover,
wenzelm@16234
  2412
locale operations (renaming and type / term instantiation) are applied
wenzelm@16234
  2413
to attribute arguments as expected.
wenzelm@16234
  2414
wenzelm@16234
  2415
INCOMPATIBILITY of the ML interface: always pass Attrib.src instead of
wenzelm@16234
  2416
actual attributes; rare situations may require Attrib.attribute to
wenzelm@16234
  2417
embed those attributes into Attrib.src that lack concrete syntax.
wenzelm@16234
  2418
Attribute implementations need to cooperate properly with the static
wenzelm@16234
  2419
binding mechanism.  Basic parsers Args.XXX_typ/term/prop and
wenzelm@16234
  2420
Attrib.XXX_thm etc. already do the right thing without further
wenzelm@16234
  2421
intervention.  Only unusual applications -- such as "where" or "of"
wenzelm@16234
  2422
(cf. src/Pure/Isar/attrib.ML), which process arguments depending both
wenzelm@16234
  2423
on the context and the facts involved -- may have to assign parsed
wenzelm@16234
  2424
values to argument tokens explicitly.
wenzelm@16234
  2425
wenzelm@16234
  2426
* Changed parameter management in theorem generation for long goal
wenzelm@16234
  2427
statements with 'includes'.  INCOMPATIBILITY: produces a different
wenzelm@16234
  2428
theorem statement in rare situations.
wenzelm@16234
  2429
ballarin@17228
  2430
* Locale inspection command 'print_locale' omits notes elements.  Use
ballarin@17228

'print_locale!' to have them included in the output.

wenzelm@16234
  2436
* Provers/hypsubst.ML: improved version of the subst method, for
wenzelm@16234
  2437
single-step rewriting: it now works in bound variable contexts. New is
wenzelm@16234
  2438
'subst (asm)', for rewriting an assumption.  INCOMPATIBILITY: may
wenzelm@16234
  2439
rewrite a different subterm than the original subst method, which is
wenzelm@16234
  2440
still available as 'simplesubst'.
wenzelm@16234
  2441
wenzelm@16234
  2442
* Provers/quasi.ML: new transitivity reasoners for transitivity only
wenzelm@16234
  2443
and quasi orders.
wenzelm@16234
  2444
wenzelm@16234

reflexive-transitive closure of relations.
wenzelm@16234
  2447
wenzelm@16234

limit (previously hard-coded with a value of 20) user-definable.
wenzelm@16234
  2450
wenzelm@16234
  2451
* Provers/simplifier.ML has been moved to Pure, where Simplifier.setup
wenzelm@16234

wenzelm@14878
  2460
  syntax (epsilon)
wenzelm@14878
  2461

wenzelm@14878
  2462
wenzelm@16234
  2463
The symbol \<some> is displayed as the alternative epsilon of LaTeX
wenzelm@16234
  2464
and x-symbol; use option '-m epsilon' to get it actually printed.
wenzelm@16234
  2465
Moreover, the mathematically important symbolic identifier \<epsilon>
wenzelm@16234
  2466
becomes available as variable, constant etc.  INCOMPATIBILITY,
wenzelm@16234
  2467
wenzelm@16234
  2468
* "x > y" abbreviates "y < x" and "x >= y" abbreviates "y <= x".
wenzelm@16234
  2469
Similarly for all quantifiers: "ALL x > y" etc.  The x-symbol for >=
wenzelm@17371
  2470
is \<ge>. New transitivity rules have been added to HOL/Orderings.thy to
avigad@17016
  2471
support corresponding Isar calculations.
wenzelm@16234
  2472
wenzelm@16234

  2484
wenzelm@16234
  2485
The old syntax is still supported but will disappear in the next
wenzelm@16234
  2486
release.  For conversion use the following Emacs search and replace
wenzelm@16234
  2487
patterns (these are not perfect but work quite well):
nipkow@15046

* Theory Commutative_Ring (in Library): method comm_ring for proving
wenzelm@17533
  2493
equalities in commutative rings; method 'algebra' provides a generic

  2494
interface.
wenzelm@17389
  2495
wenzelm@17389
  2496
* Theory Finite_Set: changed the syntax for 'setsum', summation over
wenzelm@16234
  2497
finite sets: "setsum (%x. e) A", which used to be "\<Sum>x:A. e", is
wenzelm@17371
  2498
now either "SUM x:A. e" or "\<Sum>x \<in> A. e". The bound variable can
paulson@17189
  2499
be a tuple pattern.
wenzelm@16234
  2500
wenzelm@16234
  2501
Some new syntax forms are available:
wenzelm@16234
  2502
wenzelm@16234
  2503
  "\<Sum>x | P. e"      for     "setsum (%x. e) {x. P}"
wenzelm@16234
  2504
  "\<Sum>x = a..b. e"   for     "setsum (%x. e) {a..b}"

  "\<Sum>x = a..<b. e"  for     "setsum (%x. e) {a..<b}"
wenzelm@16234

  "\<Sum>x < k. e"      for     "setsum (%x. e) {..<k}"
wenzelm@16234
  2507
wenzelm@16234
  2508
The latter form "\<Sum>x < k. e" used to be based on a separate
wenzelm@16234
  2509
function "Summation", which has been discontinued.
wenzelm@16234
  2510
wenzelm@16234
  2511
* theory Finite_Set: in structured induction proofs, the insert case
wenzelm@16234
  2512
is now 'case (insert x F)' instead of the old counterintuitive 'case
wenzelm@16234
  2513
(insert F x)'.
wenzelm@16234
  2514
wenzelm@16234
  2515
* The 'refute' command has been extended to support a much larger
wenzelm@16234
  2516
fragment of HOL, including axiomatic type classes, constdefs and
wenzelm@16234
  2517
typedefs, inductive datatypes and recursion.

  2520
Requires zChaff with proof generation to be installed.  See

  2521
HOL/ex/SAT_Examples.thy for examples.
webertj@17619
  2522
wenzelm@16234
  2523
* Datatype induction via method 'induct' now preserves the name of the
wenzelm@16234
  2524
induction variable. For example, when proving P(xs::'a list) by
wenzelm@16234
  2525
induction on xs, the induction step is now P(xs) ==> P(a#xs) rather
wenzelm@16234
  2526
than P(list) ==> P(a#list) as previously.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY

  2527
in unstructured proof scripts.
wenzelm@16234
  2528
wenzelm@16234
  2529
* Reworked implementation of records.  Improved scalability for
wenzelm@16234
  2530
records with many fields, avoiding performance problems for type
wenzelm@16234
  2531
inference. Records are no longer composed of nested field types, but
wenzelm@16234
  2532
of nested extension types. Therefore the record type only grows linear
wenzelm@16234
  2533
in the number of extensions and not in the number of fields.  The
wenzelm@16234
  2534
top-level (users) view on records is preserved.  Potential
wenzelm@16234
  2535
INCOMPATIBILITY only in strange cases, where the theory depends on the
wenzelm@16234
  2536
old record representation. The type generated for a record is called
wenzelm@16234
  2537
<record_name>_ext_type.

wenzelm@16234
  2540
proofs triggered by a record definition or a simproc (if
wenzelm@16234

quick_and_dirty is enabled).  Definitions of large records can take
wenzelm@16234
  2542
quite long.
wenzelm@16234
  2543
wenzelm@16234
  2544
New simproc record_upd_simproc for simplification of multiple record
wenzelm@16234
  2545
updates enabled by default.  Moreover, trivial updates are also
wenzelm@16234
  2546
removed: r(|x := x r|) = r.  INCOMPATIBILITY: old proofs break
wenzelm@16234
  2547
occasionally, since simplification is more powerful by default.
wenzelm@16234
  2548
wenzelm@17275

wenzelm@17275
  2550
type-variables in the term.
wenzelm@17275
  2551
wenzelm@16234
  2552
* Simplifier: automatically reasons about transitivity chains
wenzelm@16234
  2553
involving "trancl" (r^+) and "rtrancl" (r^*) by setting up tactics
wenzelm@16234
  2554
provided by Provers/trancl.ML as additional solvers.  INCOMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@16234
  2555
old proofs break occasionally as simplification may now solve more
wenzelm@16234
  2556
goals than previously.
wenzelm@16234
  2557
wenzelm@16234
  2558
* Simplifier: converts x <= y into x = y if assumption y <= x is
wenzelm@16234
  2559
present.  Works for all partial orders (class "order"), in particular
wenzelm@16234
  2560
numbers and sets.  For linear orders (e.g. numbers) it treats ~ x < y
wenzelm@16234
  2561
just like y <= x.
wenzelm@16234
  2562
wenzelm@16234
  2563
* Simplifier: new simproc for "let x = a in f x".  If a is a free or
wenzelm@16234
  2564
bound variable or a constant then the let is unfolded.  Otherwise
wenzelm@16234
  2565
first a is simplified to b, and then f b is simplified to g. If
wenzelm@16234
  2566
possible we abstract b from g arriving at "let x = b in h x",
wenzelm@16234
  2567
otherwise we unfold the let and arrive at g.  The simproc can be
wenzelm@16234
  2568
enabled/disabled by the reference use_let_simproc.  Potential
wenzelm@16234
  2569
INCOMPATIBILITY since simplification is more powerful by default.
