graceful interpretation of isatool usedir -i/-d/-D options, and more
instructive isatool mkdir; users should basically be able to get
started with "isatool mkdir Test && isatool make";

* greatly simplified document preparation setup, including more
wenzelm@11842
    11
graceful interpretation of isatool usedir -i/-d/-D options, and more
wenzelm@11842
    12
instructive isatool mkdir; users should basically be able to get

wenzelm@11842
    14
wenzelm@11842
    15
* theory dependency graph may now be incorporated into documents;
wenzelm@11842
    16
isatool usedir -g true will produce session_graph.eps/.pdf for use
wenzelm@11842
    17
with \includegraphics of LaTeX;
wenzelm@11842
    18
wenzelm@11572
    19
* support bold style (for single symbols only), input syntax is like
wenzelm@11572
    20
this: "\<^bold>\<alpha>" or "\<^bold>A";
wenzelm@11572
    21
wenzelm@11814
    22
* \<bullet> is now output as bold \cdot by default, which looks much
wenzelm@11572
    23
better in printed text;
wenzelm@11572
    24
wenzelm@11712
    25
* added default LaTeX bindings for \<tturnstile> and \<TTurnstile>;
wenzelm@11712
    26
note that these symbols are currently unavailable in Proof General /
wenzelm@11712
    27

*** Isar ***
wenzelm@11633
    31
wenzelm@11690
    32
* improved proof by cases and induction:
wenzelm@11797
    33
  - 'case' command admits impromptu naming of parameters (such as
wenzelm@11797
    34
    "case (Suc n)");
wenzelm@11797
    35
  - 'induct' method divinates rule instantiation from the inductive
wenzelm@11797
    36
    claim; no longer requires excessive ?P bindings for proper
wenzelm@11797
    37
    instantiation of cases;
wenzelm@11797
    38
  - 'induct' method properly enumerates all possibilities of set/type
wenzelm@11797
    39
    rules; as a consequence facts may be also passed through *type*
wenzelm@11797
    40
    rules without further ado;
wenzelm@11797
    41
  - removed obsolete "(simplified)" and "(stripped)" options of methods;
wenzelm@11690
    42
  - added 'print_induct_rules' (covered by help item in Proof General > 3.3);
wenzelm@11797
    43
  - moved induct/cases attributes to Pure, methods to Provers;
wenzelm@11797
    44
  - generic method setup instantiated for FOL and HOL;
wenzelm@11690
    45
wenzelm@11722
    46
* Pure: renamed "antecedent" case to "rule_context";
wenzelm@11722
    47
wenzelm@11738
    48
* Pure: added 'corollary' command;
wenzelm@11738
    49
wenzelm@11722
    50
* Pure: fixed 'token_translation' command;
wenzelm@11722
    51
wenzelm@11745
    52
* HOL: 'typedef' now allows alternative names for Rep/Abs morphisms;
wenzelm@11745
    53
wenzelm@11690
    54
* HOL: 'recdef' now fails on unfinished automated proofs, use
wenzelm@11633
    55
"(permissive)" option to recover old behavior;
wenzelm@11633
    56
wenzelm@11690
    57
* HOL: 'inductive' now longer features separate (collective)
wenzelm@11633
    58
attributes for 'intros';
wenzelm@11633
    59
wenzelm@11797
    60
* HOL: canonical cases/induct rules for n-tuples (n = 3..7);
kleing@11788
    61
wenzelm@11633
    62
wenzelm@11474
    63
*** HOL ***
wenzelm@11474
    64
wenzelm@11702
    65
* HOL: moved over to sane numeral syntax; the new policy is as
wenzelm@11702
    66
follows:
wenzelm@11702
    67
wenzelm@11702
    68
  - 0 and 1 are polymorphic constants, which are defined on any
wenzelm@11702
    69
  numeric type (nat, int, real etc.);
wenzelm@11702
    70
wenzelm@11702
    71
  - 2, 3, 4, ... and -1, -2, -3, ... are polymorphic numerals, based
wenzelm@11702
    72
  binary representation internally;
wenzelm@11702
    73
wenzelm@11702
    74
  - type nat has special constructor Suc, and generally prefers Suc 0
wenzelm@11702
    75
  over 1::nat and Suc (Suc 0) over 2::nat;
wenzelm@11702
    76
wenzelm@11702
    77
This change may cause significant INCOMPATIBILITIES; here are some
wenzelm@11702
    78
hints on converting existing sources:
wenzelm@11702
    79
wenzelm@11702
    80
  - due to the new "num" token, "-0" and "-1" etc. are now atomic
wenzelm@11702
    81
  entities, so expressions involving "-" (unary or binary minus) need
wenzelm@11702
    82
  to be spaced properly;
wenzelm@11702
    83
wenzelm@11702
    84
  - existing occurrences of "1" may need to be constraint "1::nat" or
wenzelm@11702
    85
  even replaced by Suc 0; similar for old "2";
wenzelm@11702
    86
wenzelm@11702
    87
  - replace "#nnn" by "nnn", and "#-nnn" by "-nnn";
wenzelm@11702
    88
wenzelm@11702
    89
  - remove all special provisions on numerals in proofs;
wenzelm@11702
    90
wenzelm@11802
    91
* HOL: concrete setsum syntax "\<Sum>i:A. b" == "setsum (%i. b) A"
wenzelm@11802
    92
(beware of argument permutation!);
wenzelm@11802
    93
wenzelm@11657
    94
* HOL: linorder_less_split superseded by linorder_cases;
wenzelm@11657
    95
wenzelm@11633
    96
* HOL: added "The" definite description operator; move Hilbert's "Eps"
wenzelm@11633
    97
to peripheral theory "Hilbert_Choice";
wenzelm@11437
    98
wenzelm@11572
    99
* HOL: made split_all_tac safe; EXISTING PROOFS MAY FAIL OR LOOP, so
wenzelm@11572
   100
in this (rare) case use:
wenzelm@11572
   101
wenzelm@11572
   102
  delSWrapper "split_all_tac"
wenzelm@11572
   103
  addSbefore ("unsafe_split_all_tac", unsafe_split_all_tac)
wenzelm@11572
   104
wenzelm@11572
   105
* HOL: added safe wrapper "split_conv_tac" to claset; EXISTING PROOFS
wenzelm@11474
   106
MAY FAIL;
nipkow@11361
   107
wenzelm@11572
   108
* HOL: introduced f^n = f o ... o f; warning: due to the limits of
wenzelm@11572
   109
Isabelle's type classes, ^ on functions and relations has too general
wenzelm@11572
   110
a domain, namely ('a * 'b) set and 'a => 'b; this means that it may be
wenzelm@11572
   111
necessary to attach explicit type constraints;
nipkow@11307
   112
wenzelm@11487
   113
* HOL: syntax translations now work properly with numerals and records
wenzelm@11487
   114
expressions;
wenzelm@11474
   115
wenzelm@11474
   116
* HOL/GroupTheory: group theory examples including Sylow's theorem, by
wenzelm@11475
   117
Florian Kammüller;
wenzelm@11474
   118
wenzelm@11611
   119
* HOL: eliminated global items
wenzelm@11611
   120
wenzelm@11611
   121
  const "()" -> "Product_Type.Unity"
wenzelm@11611
   122
  type "unit" -> "Product_Type.unit"
wenzelm@11611
   123
wenzelm@11611
   124
wenzelm@11474
   125
*** ZF ***
wenzelm@11474
   126
wenzelm@11474
   127
* ZF: the integer library now covers quotients and remainders, with
wenzelm@11474
   128
many laws relating division to addition, multiplication, etc.;
wenzelm@11474
   129
wenzelm@11474
   130
wenzelm@11474
   131
*** General ***
wenzelm@11474
   132
wenzelm@11817
   133
* kernel: meta-level proof terms (by Stefan Berghofer), see also ref
wenzelm@11817
   134
manual;
wenzelm@11817
   135
wenzelm@11817
   136
* classical reasoner: renamed addaltern to addafter, addSaltern to
wenzelm@11474
   137
addSafter;
wenzelm@11474
   138
wenzelm@11817
   139
* syntax: new token syntax "num" for plain numerals (without "#" of
wenzelm@11817
   140
"xnum"); potential INCOMPATIBILITY, since -0, -1 etc. are now separate
wenzelm@11817
   141
tokens, so expressions involving minus need to be spaced properly;
wenzelm@11817
   142
wenzelm@11657
   143
* syntax: support non-oriented infixes;
wenzelm@11657
   144
wenzelm@11817
   145
* syntax: print modes "type_brackets" and "no_type_brackets" control
wenzelm@11817
   146
output of nested => (types); the default behavior is "type_brackets";
wenzelm@11817
   147
wenzelm@11817
   148
* syntax: builtin parse translation for "_constify" turns valued
wenzelm@11817
   149
tokens into AST constants;
wenzelm@11474
   150
wenzelm@11572
   151
* system: support Poly/ML 4.1.1 (now able to manage large heaps);
wenzelm@11551
   152
wenzelm@11633
   153
* system: Proof General keywords specification is now part of the
wenzelm@11633
   154
Isabelle distribution (see etc/isar-keywords.el);
wenzelm@11633
   155
wenzelm@11551
   156
* system: smart selection of Isabelle process versus Isabelle
wenzelm@11572
   157
interface, accommodates case-insensitive file systems (e.g. HFS+); may
wenzelm@11572
   158
run both "isabelle" and "Isabelle" even if file names are badly
wenzelm@11572
   159
damaged (executable inspects the case of the first letter of its own
wenzelm@11572
   160
name); added separate "isabelle-process" and "isabelle-interface";

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES ***
nipkow@10224
   168
paulson@11241
   169
* HOL: please note that theories in the Library and elsewhere often use the
paulson@11241
   170
new-style (Isar) format; to refer to their theorems in an ML script you must
paulson@11241
   171
bind them to ML identifers by e.g.	val thm_name = thm "thm_name";
paulson@11241
   172
wenzelm@11043
   173
* HOL: inductive package no longer splits induction rule aggressively,
wenzelm@11043
   174
but only as far as specified by the introductions given; the old
oheimb@11130
   175
format may be recovered via ML function complete_split_rule or attribute
wenzelm@11043
   176
'split_rule (complete)';
wenzelm@11043
   177
wenzelm@10998
   178
* HOL: induct renamed to lfp_induct, lfp_Tarski to lfp_unfold,
wenzelm@10998
   179
gfp_Tarski to gfp_unfold;
nipkow@10224
   180
paulson@10288
   181
* HOL: contrapos, contrapos2 renamed to contrapos_nn, contrapos_pp;
paulson@10288
   182
wenzelm@10858
   183
* HOL: infix "dvd" now has priority 50 rather than 70 (because it is a
wenzelm@10858
   184
relation); infix "^^" has been renamed "``"; infix "``" has been
wenzelm@10858
   185
renamed "`"; "univalent" has been renamed "single_valued";
nipkow@10793
   186
wenzelm@10998
   187
* HOL/Real: "rinv" and "hrinv" replaced by overloaded "inverse"
wenzelm@10998
   188
operation;
wenzelm@10998
   189
nipkow@10868
   190
* HOLCF: infix "`" has been renamed "$"; the symbol syntax is \<cdot>;
nipkow@10856
   191
wenzelm@10391
   192
* Isar: 'obtain' no longer declares "that" fact as simp/intro;
wenzelm@10391
   193
wenzelm@10401
   194
* Isar/HOL: method 'induct' now handles non-atomic goals; as a
wenzelm@10401
   195
consequence, it is no longer monotonic wrt. the local goal context
wenzelm@10401
   196
(which is now passed through the inductive cases);
wenzelm@10401
   197
wenzelm@10976
   198
* Document preparation: renamed standard symbols \<ll> to \<lless> and
wenzelm@10976
   199
\<gg> to \<ggreater>;
wenzelm@10976
   200
nipkow@10224
   201
wenzelm@10245
   202
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@10245
   203
wenzelm@10858
   204
* \isabellestyle{NAME} selects version of Isabelle output (currently
wenzelm@10858
   205
available: are "it" for near math-mode best-style output, "sl" for
wenzelm@10858
   206
slanted text style, and "tt" for plain type-writer; if no
wenzelm@10858
   207
\isabellestyle command is given, output is according to slanted
wenzelm@10858
   208
type-writer);
wenzelm@10858
   209
wenzelm@10322
   210
* support sub/super scripts (for single symbols only), input syntax is
wenzelm@10322
   211
like this: "A\<^sup>*" or "A\<^sup>\<star>";
wenzelm@10322
   212
wenzelm@10858
   213
* some more standard symbols; see Appendix A of the system manual for
wenzelm@11062
   214
the complete list of symbols defined in isabellesym.sty;
wenzelm@10858
   215
wenzelm@10998
   216
* improved isabelle style files; more abstract symbol implementation
wenzelm@10998
   217
(should now use \isamath{...} and \isatext{...} in custom symbol
wenzelm@10998
   218
definitions);
wenzelm@10998
   219
wenzelm@10634
   220
* antiquotation @{goals} and @{subgoals} for output of *dynamic* goals
wenzelm@10634
   221
state; Note that presentation of goal states does not conform to
wenzelm@10634
   222
actual human-readable proof documents.  Please do not include goal
wenzelm@10634
   223
states into document output unless you really know what you are doing!
wenzelm@10322
   224
wenzelm@11062
   225
* proper indentation of antiquoted output with proportional LaTeX
wenzelm@11062
   226
fonts;
wenzelm@10862
   227
wenzelm@11050
   228
* no_document ML operator temporarily disables LaTeX document
wenzelm@11050
   229
generation;
wenzelm@11050
   230
wenzelm@11062
   231
* isatool unsymbolize tunes sources for plain ASCII communication;
wenzelm@11062
   232
wenzelm@10322
   233
wenzelm@10306
   234
*** Isar ***
wenzelm@10306
   235
wenzelm@10547
   236
* Pure: Isar now suffers initial goal statements to contain unbound
wenzelm@10547
   237
schematic variables (this does not conform to actual readable proof
wenzelm@10547
   238
documents, due to unpredictable outcome and non-compositional proof
wenzelm@10547
   239
checking); users who know what they are doing may use schematic goals
wenzelm@10547
   240
for Prolog-style synthesis of proven results;
wenzelm@10547
   241
wenzelm@10391
   242
* Pure: assumption method (an implicit finishing) now handles actual
wenzelm@10391
   243
rules as well;
wenzelm@10391
   244
wenzelm@10391
   245
* Pure: improved 'obtain' --- moved to Pure, insert "that" into
wenzelm@10391
   246
initial goal, declare "that" only as Pure intro (only for single
wenzelm@10391
   247
steps); the "that" rule assumption may now be involved in implicit
wenzelm@10391
   248
finishing, thus ".." becomes a feasible for trivial obtains;
wenzelm@10391
   249
wenzelm@10391
   250
* Pure: default proof step now includes 'intro_classes'; thus trivial
wenzelm@10391
   251
instance proofs may be performed by "..";
wenzelm@10391
   252
wenzelm@10391
   253
* Pure: ?thesis / ?this / "..." now work for pure meta-level
wenzelm@10391
   254
statements as well;
wenzelm@10306
   255
wenzelm@11097
   256
* Pure: more robust selection of calculational rules;
wenzelm@11097
   257
wenzelm@10858
   258
* Pure: the builtin notion of 'finished' goal now includes the ==-refl
wenzelm@10858
   259
rule (as well as the assumption rule);
wenzelm@10858
   260
wenzelm@10858
   261
* Pure: 'thm_deps' command visualizes dependencies of theorems and
wenzelm@10858
   262
lemmas, using the graph browser tool;
wenzelm@10858
   263
wenzelm@10944
   264
* Pure: predict failure of "show" in interactive mode;
wenzelm@10944
   265
wenzelm@11016
   266
* Pure: 'thms_containing' now takes actual terms as arguments;
wenzelm@11016
   267
wenzelm@10401
   268
* HOL: improved method 'induct' --- now handles non-atomic goals
wenzelm@10401
   269
(potential INCOMPATIBILITY); tuned error handling;
wenzelm@10401
   270
wenzelm@10557
   271
* HOL: cases and induct rules now provide explicit hints about the
wenzelm@10547
   272
number of facts to be consumed (0 for "type" and 1 for "set" rules);
wenzelm@10547
   273
any remaining facts are inserted into the goal verbatim;
wenzelm@10547
   274
wenzelm@10858
   275
* HOL: local contexts (aka cases) may now contain term bindings as
wenzelm@10858
   276
well; the 'cases' and 'induct' methods new provide a ?case binding for
wenzelm@10858
   277
the result to be shown in each case;
wenzelm@10858
   278
wenzelm@10770
   279
* HOL: added 'recdef_tc' command;
wenzelm@10770
   280
wenzelm@11016
   281
* isatool convert assists in eliminating legacy ML scripts;

*** HOL ***
wenzelm@10245
   285
wenzelm@10245
   286
* HOL/Library: a collection of generic theories to be used together
wenzelm@10245
   287
with main HOL; the theory loader path already includes this directory
wenzelm@10245
   288
by default; the following existing theories have been moved here:
wenzelm@10245
   289
HOL/Induct/Multiset, HOL/Induct/Acc (as Accessible_Part), HOL/While
wenzelm@10337
   290
(as While_Combinator), HOL/Lex/Prefix (as List_Prefix);
wenzelm@10245
   291
wenzelm@10966
   292
* HOL/Unix: "Some aspects of Unix file-system security", a typical
wenzelm@10966
   293
modelling and verification task performed in Isabelle/HOL +
wenzelm@10966
   294
Isabelle/Isar + Isabelle document preparation (by Markus Wenzel).
wenzelm@10966
   295
wenzelm@11094
   296
* HOL/Algebra: special summation operator SUM no longer exists, it has
wenzelm@11094
   297
been replaced by setsum; infix 'assoc' now has priority 50 (like
wenzelm@11094
   298
'dvd'); axiom 'one_not_zero' has been moved from axclass 'ring' to
wenzelm@11094
   299
'domain', this makes the theory consistent with mathematical
wenzelm@11094
   300
literature;
wenzelm@11094
   301
wenzelm@10514
   302
* HOL basics: added overloaded operations "inverse" and "divide"
wenzelm@10726
   303
(infix "/"), syntax for generic "abs" operation, generic summation
wenzelm@11094
   304
operator \<Sum>;
wenzelm@10452
   305
wenzelm@10391
   306
* HOL/typedef: simplified package, provide more useful rules (see also
wenzelm@10391
   307
HOL/subset.thy);
wenzelm@10391
   308
wenzelm@10915
   309
* HOL/datatype: induction rule for arbitrarily branching datatypes is
wenzelm@10915
   310
now expressed as a proper nested rule (old-style tactic scripts may
wenzelm@10915
   311
require atomize_strip_tac to cope with non-atomic premises);
wenzelm@10915
   312
wenzelm@10915
   313
* HOL: renamed theory "Prod" to "Product_Type", renamed "split" rule
wenzelm@10915
   314
to "split_conv" (old name still available for compatibility);
wenzelm@10915
   315
wenzelm@10915
   316
* HOL: improved concrete syntax for strings (e.g. allows translation
wenzelm@10915
   317
rules with string literals);
wenzelm@10915
   318
wenzelm@10944
   319
* HOL-Hyperreal: a new target, extending HOL-Real with the hyperreals
wenzelm@10944
   320
and Fleuriot's mechanization of analysis;
paulson@10756
   321
wenzelm@11094
   322
* HOL/Real, HOL/Hyperreal: improved arithmetic simplification;
wenzelm@10391
   323
wenzelm@10858
   324
paulson@10474
   325
*** CTT ***
paulson@10474
   326
wenzelm@10547
   327
* CTT: x-symbol support for Pi, Sigma, -->, : (membership); note that
wenzelm@10547
   328
"lam" is displayed as TWO lambda-symbols
paulson@10474
   329
wenzelm@10547
   330
* CTT: theory Main now available, containing everything (that is, Bool
wenzelm@10547
   331
and Arith);
wenzelm@10547
   332
paulson@10474
   333
wenzelm@10391
   334
*** General ***
wenzelm@10391
   335
wenzelm@10547
   336
* Pure: the Simplifier has been implemented properly as a derived rule
wenzelm@10547
   337
outside of the actual kernel (at last!); the overall performance
wenzelm@10547
   338
penalty in practical applications is about 50%, while reliability of
wenzelm@10547
   339
the Isabelle inference kernel has been greatly improved;
wenzelm@10547
   340
wenzelm@11112
   341
* print modes "brackets" and "no_brackets" control output of nested =>
wenzelm@11112
   342
(types) and ==> (props); the default behaviour is "brackets";
wenzelm@11112
   343
wenzelm@10391
   344
* Provers: fast_tac (and friends) now handle actual object-logic rules
wenzelm@10391
   345
as assumptions as well;
wenzelm@10391
   346
wenzelm@11124
   347
* system: support Poly/ML 4.0;
wenzelm@11124
   348
wenzelm@11124
   349
* system: isatool install handles KDE version 1 or 2;
wenzelm@11124

wenzelm@10391
   351
wenzelm@10245
   352

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES ***
paulson@8014
   357
wenzelm@8848
   358
* HOL: simplification of natural numbers is much changed; to partly
wenzelm@8848
   359
recover the old behaviour (e.g. to prevent n+n rewriting to #2*n)
wenzelm@8848
   360
issue the following ML commands:
wenzelm@8848
   361
wenzelm@8848
   362
  Delsimprocs Nat_Numeral_Simprocs.cancel_numerals;
wenzelm@8848
   363
  Delsimprocs [Nat_Numeral_Simprocs.combine_numerals];
paulson@8788
   364
wenzelm@10129
   365
* HOL: simplification no longer dives into case-expressions; this is
wenzelm@10129
   366
controlled by "t.weak_case_cong" for each datatype t;
wenzelm@10003
   367
wenzelm@10003
   368
* HOL: nat_less_induct renamed to less_induct;
wenzelm@10003
   369
wenzelm@10003
   370
* HOL: systematic renaming of the SOME (Eps) rules, may use isatool
wenzelm@10003
   371
fixsome to patch .thy and .ML sources automatically;
paulson@8967
   372
wenzelm@10003
   373
  select_equality  -> some_equality
wenzelm@10003
   374
  select_eq_Ex     -> some_eq_ex
wenzelm@10003
   375
  selectI2EX       -> someI2_ex
wenzelm@10003
   376
  selectI2         -> someI2
wenzelm@10003
   377
  selectI          -> someI
wenzelm@10003
   378
  select1_equality -> some1_equality
wenzelm@10003
   379
  Eps_sym_eq       -> some_sym_eq_trivial
wenzelm@10003
   380
  Eps_eq           -> some_eq_trivial
wenzelm@10003
   381
wenzelm@10003
   382
* HOL: exhaust_tac on datatypes superceded by new generic case_tac;
wenzelm@10003
   383
wenzelm@10003
   384
* HOL: removed obsolete theorem binding expand_if (refer to split_if
wenzelm@10003
   385
instead);
wenzelm@10003
   386
wenzelm@10003
   387
* HOL: the recursion equations generated by 'recdef' are now called
wenzelm@10003
   388
f.simps instead of f.rules;
wenzelm@10003
   389
wenzelm@10003
   390
* HOL: qed_spec_mp now also handles bounded ALL as well;
wenzelm@10003
   391
wenzelm@10003
   392
* HOL: 0 is now overloaded, so the type constraint ":: nat" may
wenzelm@10003
   393
sometimes be needed;
wenzelm@10003
   394
wenzelm@10003
   395
* HOL: the constant for "f``x" is now "image" rather than "op ``";
paulson@8014
   396
paulson@10065
   397
* HOL: the constant for "f-``x" is now "vimage" rather than "op -``";
paulson@10065
   398
wenzelm@9330
   399
* HOL: the disjoint sum is now "<+>" instead of "Plus"; the cartesian
wenzelm@9330
   400
product is now "<*>" instead of "Times"; the lexicographic product is
wenzelm@9330
   401
now "<*lex*>" instead of "**";
nipkow@8705
   402
wenzelm@10003
   403
* HOL: theory Sexp is now in HOL/Induct examples (it used to be part
wenzelm@10003
   404
of main HOL, but was unused); better use HOL's datatype package;
paulson@9971
   405
wenzelm@10137
   406
* HOL: removed "symbols" syntax for constant "override" of theory Map;
wenzelm@10137
   407
the old syntax may be recovered as follows:
wenzelm@10137
   408
wenzelm@10137
   409
  syntax (symbols)
wenzelm@10137
   410
    override  :: "('a ~=> 'b) => ('a ~=> 'b) => ('a ~=> 'b)"
wenzelm@10137
   411
      (infixl "\\<oplus>" 100)
wenzelm@10137
   412
wenzelm@8848
   413
* HOL/Real: "rabs" replaced by overloaded "abs" function;
wenzelm@8848
   414
wenzelm@8887
   415
* HOL/ML: even fewer consts are declared as global (see theories Ord,
wenzelm@8887
   416
Lfp, Gfp, WF); this only affects ML packages that refer to const names
wenzelm@8887
   417
internally;
wenzelm@8887
   418
wenzelm@10003
   419
* HOL and ZF: syntax for quotienting wrt an equivalence relation
wenzelm@10003
   420
changed from A/r to A//r;
wenzelm@9908
   421
wenzelm@10003
   422
* ZF: new treatment of arithmetic (nat & int) may break some old
wenzelm@10003
   423
proofs;
wenzelm@8921
   424
wenzelm@10003
   425
* Isar: renamed some attributes (RS -> THEN, simplify -> simplified,
wenzelm@10003
   426
rulify -> rule_format, elimify -> elim_format, ...);
paulson@9542
   427
wenzelm@9941
   428
* Isar/Provers: intro/elim/dest attributes changed; renamed
wenzelm@9941
   429
intro/intro!/intro!! flags to intro!/intro/intro? (in most cases, one
wenzelm@9937
   430
should have to change intro!! to intro? only); replaced "delrule" by
wenzelm@9937
   431
"rule del";
wenzelm@9437
   432
wenzelm@9612
   433
* Isar/HOL: renamed "intrs" to "intros" in inductive definitions;
wenzelm@9612
   434
wenzelm@9437
   435
* Provers: strengthened force_tac by using new first_best_tac;
oheimb@9402
   436
wenzelm@10003
   437
* LaTeX document preparation: several changes of isabelle.sty (see
wenzelm@10003
   438
lib/texinputs);
wenzelm@8729
   439
paulson@8014
   440
wenzelm@8487
   441
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@8358
   442
wenzelm@9198
   443
* formal comments (text blocks etc.) in new-style theories may now
wenzelm@9753
   444
contain antiquotations of thm/prop/term/typ/text to be presented
wenzelm@9753
   445
according to latex print mode; concrete syntax is like this:
wenzelm@9753
   446
@{term[show_types] "f(x) = a + x"};
wenzelm@9198
   447
wenzelm@8358
   448
* isatool mkdir provides easy setup of Isabelle session directories,
wenzelm@8518
   449
including proper document sources;
wenzelm@8358
   450
wenzelm@8358
   451
* generated LaTeX sources are now deleted after successful run
wenzelm@8358
   452
(isatool document -c); may retain a copy somewhere else via -D option
wenzelm@8358
   453
of isatool usedir;
wenzelm@8358
   454
wenzelm@8566
   455
* isatool usedir -D now lets isatool latex -o sty update the Isabelle
wenzelm@10003
   456
style files, achieving self-contained LaTeX sources and simplifying
wenzelm@10003
   457
LaTeX debugging;
wenzelm@8566
   458
wenzelm@8518
   459
* old-style theories now produce (crude) LaTeX output as well;
wenzelm@8358
   460
wenzelm@9057
   461
* browser info session directories are now self-contained (may be put
wenzelm@9437
   462
on WWW server seperately); improved graphs of nested sessions; removed
wenzelm@9437
   463
graph for 'all sessions';
wenzelm@9057
   464
wenzelm@10003
   465
* several improvements in isabelle style files; \isabellestyle{it}
wenzelm@10003
   466
produces fake math mode output; \isamarkupheader is now \section by
wenzelm@10003
   467
default; see lib/texinputs/isabelle.sty etc.;
wenzelm@9489
   468
wenzelm@8358
   469
wenzelm@8184
   470
*** Isar ***
wenzelm@8184
   471
wenzelm@10003
   472
* Isar/Pure: local results and corresponding term bindings are now
wenzelm@10003
   473
subject to Hindley-Milner polymorphism (similar to ML); this
wenzelm@10003
   474
accommodates incremental type-inference very nicely;
wenzelm@8283
   475
wenzelm@10003
   476
* Isar/Pure: new derived language element 'obtain' supports
wenzelm@10003
   477
generalized existence reasoning;
wenzelm@8621
   478
wenzelm@10003
   479
* Isar/Pure: new calculational elements 'moreover' and 'ultimately'
wenzelm@10003
   480
support accumulation of results, without applying any rules yet;
wenzelm@10003
   481
useful to collect intermediate results without explicit name
wenzelm@10003
   482
references, and for use with transitivity rules with more than 2
wenzelm@10003
   483
premises;
wenzelm@8184
   484
wenzelm@10003
   485
* Isar/Pure: scalable support for case-analysis type proofs: new
wenzelm@10003
   486
'case' language element refers to local contexts symbolically, as
wenzelm@10003
   487
produced by certain proof methods; internally, case names are attached
wenzelm@10003
   488
to theorems as "tags";
wenzelm@8440
   489
wenzelm@10003
   490
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'hide' removes declarations from
wenzelm@9330
   491
class/type/const name spaces;
wenzelm@9330
   492
wenzelm@10003
   493
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'defs' supports option "(overloaded)" to
wenzelm@9330
   494
indicate potential overloading;
wenzelm@9330
   495
wenzelm@10003
   496
* Isar/Pure: changed syntax of local blocks from {{ }} to { };
wenzelm@8621
   497
wenzelm@10003
   498
* Isar/Pure: syntax of sorts made 'inner', i.e. have to write
wenzelm@10003
   499
"{a,b,c}" instead of {a,b,c};
wenzelm@9011
   500
wenzelm@10003
   501
* Isar/Pure now provides its own version of intro/elim/dest
wenzelm@10003
   502
attributes; useful for building new logics, but beware of confusion
wenzelm@10003
   503
with the version in Provers/classical;
wenzelm@9612
   504
wenzelm@10003
   505
* Isar/Pure: the local context of (non-atomic) goals is provided via
wenzelm@10003
   506
case name 'antecedent';
wenzelm@8440
   507
wenzelm@10003
   508
* Isar/Pure: removed obsolete 'transfer' attribute (transfer of thms
wenzelm@10003
   509
to the current context is now done automatically);
wenzelm@9383
   510
wenzelm@10003
   511
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'method_setup' provides a simple interface
wenzelm@10003
   512
for definining proof methods in ML;
wenzelm@9612
   513
wenzelm@10003
   514
* Isar/Provers: intro/elim/dest attributes changed; renamed
wenzelm@9941
   515
intro/intro!/intro!! flags to intro!/intro/intro? (INCOMPATIBILITY, in
wenzelm@9941
   516
most cases, one should have to change intro!! to intro? only);
wenzelm@9941
   517
replaced "delrule" by "rule del";
wenzelm@8283
   518
wenzelm@10003
   519
* Isar/Provers: new 'hypsubst' method, plain 'subst' method and
wenzelm@10003
   520
'symmetric' attribute (the latter supercedes [RS sym]);
wenzelm@10003
   521
wenzelm@10003
   522
* Isar/Provers: splitter support (via 'split' attribute and 'simp'
wenzelm@10003
   523
method modifier); 'simp' method: 'only:' modifier removes loopers as
wenzelm@10003
   524
well (including splits);
wenzelm@10003
   525
wenzelm@10003
   526
* Isar/Provers: Simplifier and Classical methods now support all kind
wenzelm@10003
   527
of modifiers used in the past, including 'cong', 'iff', etc.
wenzelm@10003
   528
wenzelm@10003
   529
* Isar/Provers: added 'fastsimp' and 'clarsimp' methods (combination
wenzelm@10003
   530
of Simplifier and Classical reasoner);
wenzelm@10003
   531
wenzelm@10003
   532
* Isar/HOL: new proof method 'cases' and improved version of 'induct'
wenzelm@10003
   533
now support named cases; major packages (inductive, datatype, primrec,
wenzelm@10003
   534
recdef) support case names and properly name parameters;
wenzelm@9612
   535
wenzelm@10003
   536
* Isar/HOL: new transitivity rules for substitution in inequalities --
wenzelm@10003
   537
monotonicity conditions are extracted to be proven at end of
wenzelm@10003
   538
calculations;
wenzelm@10003
   539
wenzelm@10003
   540
* Isar/HOL: removed 'case_split' thm binding, should use 'cases' proof
wenzelm@10003
   541
method anyway;
wenzelm@10003
   542
wenzelm@10003
   543
* Isar/HOL: removed old expand_if = split_if; theorems if_splits =
wenzelm@10003
   544
split_if split_if_asm; datatype package provides theorems foo.splits =
wenzelm@10003
   545
foo.split foo.split_asm for each datatype;
wenzelm@10003
   546
wenzelm@10003
   547
* Isar/HOL: tuned inductive package, rename "intrs" to "intros"
wenzelm@10003
   548
(potential INCOMPATIBILITY), emulation of mk_cases feature for proof
wenzelm@10003
   549
scripts: new 'inductive_cases' command and 'ind_cases' method; (Note:
wenzelm@10003
   550
use "(cases (simplified))" method in proper proof texts);
wenzelm@10003
   551
wenzelm@10003
   552
* Isar/HOL: added global 'arith_split' attribute for 'arith' method;
wenzelm@10003
   553
wenzelm@10003
   554
* Isar: names of theorems etc. may be natural numbers as well;
wenzelm@10003
   555
wenzelm@10003
   556
* Isar: 'pr' command: optional arguments for goals_limit and
wenzelm@9724
   557
ProofContext.prems_limit; no longer prints theory contexts, but only

proof states;
wenzelm@8487
   559
wenzelm@10003
   560
* Isar: diagnostic commands 'pr', 'thm', 'prop', 'term', 'typ' admit
wenzelm@8518
   561
additional print modes to be specified; e.g. "pr(latex)" will print
wenzelm@8518
   562
proof state according to the Isabelle LaTeX style;
wenzelm@8487
   563
wenzelm@10003
   564
* Isar: improved support for emulating tactic scripts, including proof
wenzelm@9612
   565
methods 'rule_tac' etc., 'cut_tac', 'thin_tac', 'subgoal_tac',
wenzelm@9612
   566
'rename_tac', 'rotate_tac', 'tactic', and 'case_tac' / 'induct_tac'
wenzelm@9612
   567
(for HOL datatypes);
wenzelm@8534
   568
wenzelm@10003
   569
* Isar: simplified (more robust) goal selection of proof methods: 1st
wenzelm@10003
   570
goal, all goals, or explicit goal specifier (tactic emulation); thus
wenzelm@10003
   571
'proof method scripts' have to be in depth-first order;
wenzelm@8673
   572
wenzelm@10003
   573
* Isar: tuned 'let' syntax: replaced 'as' keyword by 'and';
wenzelm@8729
   574
wenzelm@10003
   575
* Isar: removed 'help' command, which hasn't been too helpful anyway;
wenzelm@10003
   576
should instead use individual commands for printing items
wenzelm@10003
   577
(print_commands, print_methods etc.);
wenzelm@9224
   578
wenzelm@10003
   579

recursive procedures, by David von Oheimb;
wenzelm@10164
   610

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

   612
wenzelm@10003
   613
* HOL/ex/Multiquote: example of multiple nested quotations and
wenzelm@10003
   614
anti-quotations -- basically a generalized version of de-Bruijn
wenzelm@10003
   615
representation; very useful in avoiding lifting of operations;
wenzelm@8848
   616
wenzelm@9612
   617
* HOL/record: added general record equality rule to simpset; fixed
wenzelm@9612
   618
select-update simplification procedure to handle extended records as

well; admit "r" as field name;
paulson@9542
   620
paulson@8967
   621
* HOL: 0 is now overloaded over the new sort "zero", allowing its use with
paulson@8967
   622
other numeric types and also as the identity of groups, rings, etc.;
paulson@8967
   623
paulson@8967
   624
* HOL: new axclass plus_ac0 for addition with the AC-laws and 0 as identity.
paulson@8967
   625
Types nat and int belong to this axclass;
paulson@8967
   626
wenzelm@10003
   627
* HOL: greatly improved simplification involving numerals of type nat, int, real:
paulson@8788
   628
   (i + #8 + j) = Suc k simplifies to  #7 + (i + j) = k
paulson@8832
   629
   i*j + k + j*#3*i     simplifies to  #4*(i*j) + k
paulson@8832
   630
  two terms #m*u and #n*u are replaced by #(m+n)*u
paulson@8832
   631
    (where #m, #n and u can implicitly be 1; this is simproc combine_numerals)
paulson@8832
   632
  and the term/formula #m*u+x ~~ #n*u+y simplifies simplifies to #(m-n)+x ~~ y
paulson@8832
   633
    or x ~~ #(n-m)+y, where ~~ is one of = < <= or - (simproc cancel_numerals);
paulson@8736
   634
wenzelm@10003
   635
* HOL: meson_tac is available (previously in ex/meson.ML); it is a
wenzelm@10003
   636
powerful prover for predicate logic but knows nothing of clasets; see
wenzelm@10003

ex/mesontest.ML and ex/mesontest2.ML for example applications;
paulson@9835
   638
wenzelm@8848
   639
* HOL: new version of "case_tac" subsumes both boolean case split and
wenzelm@8440
   640
"exhaust_tac" on datatypes; INCOMPATIBILITY: exhaust_tac no longer
wenzelm@8518
   641
exists, may define val exhaust_tac = case_tac for ad-hoc portability;
wenzelm@8440
   642
wenzelm@8848
   643
* HOL: simplification no longer dives into case-expressions: only the
wenzelm@10129
   644
selector expression is simplified, but not the remaining arms; to
wenzelm@10129
   645
enable full simplification of case-expressions for datatype t, you may
wenzelm@10129
   646
remove t.weak_case_cong from the simpset, either globally (Delcongs
wenzelm@10129
   647
[thm"t.weak_case_cong"];) or locally (delcongs [...]).
nipkow@8603

wenzelm@8848
   649
* HOL/recdef: the recursion equations generated by 'recdef' for
wenzelm@8848
   650
function 'f' are now called f.simps instead of f.rules; if all
wenzelm@8848
   651
termination conditions are proved automatically, these simplification
wenzelm@8848
   652
rules are added to the simpset, as in primrec; rules may be named
wenzelm@8848
   653
individually as well, resulting in a separate list of theorems for
wenzelm@8848
   654
each equation;
wenzelm@8848
   655
wenzelm@9489
   656
* HOL/While is a new theory that provides a while-combinator. It
wenzelm@9489
   657
permits the definition of tail-recursive functions without the
wenzelm@9489
   658
provision of a termination measure. The latter is necessary once the
wenzelm@9489
   659
invariant proof rule for while is applied.
nipkow@9457
   660
wenzelm@10003
   661
* HOL: new (overloaded) notation for the set of elements below/above

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

   666
* HOL: new tactic induct_thm_tac: thm -> string -> int -> tactic
nipkow@9746
   667
induct_tac th "x1 ... xn" expects th to have a conclusion of the form
nipkow@9746

P v1 ... vn and abbreviates res_inst_tac [("v1","x1"),...,("vn","xn")] th;
nipkow@9746

   670
* HOL/Real: "rabs" replaced by overloaded "abs" function;
nipkow@9737
   671
wenzelm@10003
   672
* HOL: theory Sexp now in HOL/Induct examples (it used to be part of
wenzelm@10003
   673
main HOL, but was unused);
nipkow@8626
   674
wenzelm@10003
   675
* HOL: fewer consts declared as global (e.g. have to refer to
wenzelm@10003
   676
"Lfp.lfp" instead of "lfp" internally; affects ML packages only);
wenzelm@8887
   677
wenzelm@10003
   678
* HOL: tuned AST representation of nested pairs, avoiding bogus output
wenzelm@10003
   679
in case of overlap with user translations (e.g. judgements over
wenzelm@10003
   680
tuples); (note that the underlying logical represenation is still
wenzelm@10003
   681
bogus);

paulson@9542
   685
wenzelm@10003
   686
* ZF: simplification automatically cancels common terms in arithmetic
wenzelm@10003
   687
expressions over nat and int;
paulson@9542
   688
wenzelm@10003
   689
* ZF: new treatment of nat to minimize type-checking: all operators
wenzelm@10003
   690
coerce their operands to a natural number using the function natify,
wenzelm@10003
   691
making the algebraic laws unconditional;
paulson@9542
   692
wenzelm@10003
   693
* ZF: as above, for int: operators coerce their operands to an integer
wenzelm@10003
   694
using the function intify;
paulson@9542
   695
wenzelm@10003
   696
* ZF: the integer library now contains many of the usual laws for the
wenzelm@10003
   697
orderings, including $<=, and monotonicity laws for $+ and $*;
paulson@9542
   698
wenzelm@10003
   699
* ZF: new example ZF/ex/NatSum to demonstrate integer arithmetic
wenzelm@10003
   700
simplification;
paulson@9388
   701
wenzelm@10003
   702
* FOL and ZF: AddIffs now available, giving theorems of the form P<->Q
wenzelm@10003
   703
to the simplifier and classical reasoner simultaneously;

* Provers: blast_tac now handles actual object-logic rules as
wenzelm@10003
   709
assumptions; note that auto_tac uses blast_tac internally as well;
wenzelm@10003
   710
wenzelm@10003
   711
* Provers: new functions rulify/rulify_no_asm: thm -> thm for turning
wenzelm@10003
   712
outer -->/All/Ball into ==>/!!; qed_spec_mp now uses rulify_no_asm;
wenzelm@10003
   713
wenzelm@9941
   714
* Provers: delrules now handles destruct rules as well (no longer need
wenzelm@9941
   715
explicit make_elim);
wenzelm@9941
   716
wenzelm@10003
   717
* Provers: Blast_tac now warns of and ignores "weak elimination rules" e.g.
wenzelm@10003
   718
  [| inj ?f;          ?f ?x = ?f ?y; ?x = ?y ==> ?W |] ==> ?W
wenzelm@10003
   719
use instead the strong form,
wenzelm@10003
   720
  [| inj ?f; ~ ?W ==> ?f ?x = ?f ?y; ?x = ?y ==> ?W |] ==> ?W
wenzelm@10003
   721
in HOL, FOL and ZF the function cla_make_elim will create such rules
wenzelm@10003
   722
from destruct-rules;
wenzelm@9489
   723
wenzelm@9709
   724
* Provers: Simplifier.easy_setup provides a fast path to basic
wenzelm@9709
   725
Simplifier setup for new object-logics;
wenzelm@9709
   726
wenzelm@9709

* Pure: AST translation rules no longer require constant head on LHS;
wenzelm@9349
   728
wenzelm@9709
   729
* Pure: improved name spaces: ambiguous output is qualified; support
wenzelm@9709

wenzelm@10003
   732
* system: smart setup of canonical ML_HOME, ISABELLE_INTERFACE, and
wenzelm@10003
   733
XSYMBOL_HOME; no longer need to do manual configuration in most
wenzelm@10003
   734
situations;
wenzelm@10003
   735
wenzelm@9709
   736
* system: compression of ML heaps images may now be controlled via -c
wenzelm@9709
   737
option of isabelle and isatool usedir (currently only observed by
wenzelm@9709
   738
Poly/ML);
wenzelm@8358
   739
wenzelm@9981
   740
* system: isatool installfonts may handle X-Symbol fonts as well (very
wenzelm@9981
   741
useful for remote X11);
wenzelm@9981
   742
wenzelm@9709
   743
* system: provide TAGS file for Isabelle sources;
wenzelm@9052
   744
wenzelm@9288
   745
* ML: infix 'OF' is a version of 'MRS' with more appropriate argument
wenzelm@9288
   746
order;
wenzelm@9288
   747
wenzelm@8994
   748
* ML: renamed flags Syntax.trace_norm_ast to Syntax.trace_ast; global
wenzelm@8994
   749
timing flag supersedes proof_timing and Toplevel.trace;
wenzelm@8994
   750
wenzelm@10003
   751
* ML: new combinators |>> and |>>> for incremental transformations
wenzelm@10003
   752
with secondary results (e.g. certain theory extensions):
wenzelm@10003
   753
wenzelm@9330
   754
* ML: PureThy.add_defs gets additional argument to indicate potential
wenzelm@9330
   755
overloading (usually false);
wenzelm@9330
   756
wenzelm@10003
   757
* ML: PureThy.add_thms/add_axioms/add_defs now return theorems as

paulson@6922
   767
* HOL: The THEN and ELSE parts of conditional expressions (if P then x else y)
paulson@6922
   768
are no longer simplified.  (This allows the simplifier to unfold recursive
paulson@6922
   769
functional programs.)  To restore the old behaviour, declare
wenzelm@7215
   770
wenzelm@7215

    Delcongs [if_weak_cong];
paulson@6922
   772

wenzelm@6269
   774
complement;
paulson@5931
   775
wenzelm@6269
   776
* HOL: the predicate "inj" is now defined by translation to "inj_on";
paulson@6174
   777
berghofe@7847
   778
* HOL/datatype: mutual_induct_tac no longer exists --
berghofe@7847
   779
  use induct_tac "x_1 ... x_n" instead of mutual_induct_tac ["x_1", ..., "x_n"]
berghofe@7847
   780
wenzelm@6386
   781
* HOL/typedef: fixed type inference for representing set; type
wenzelm@6386
   782
arguments now have to occur explicitly on the rhs as type constraints;
wenzelm@6386
   783
wenzelm@6269
   784
* ZF: The con_defs part of an inductive definition may no longer refer
wenzelm@6269
   785
to constants declared in the same theory;
nipkow@6057
   786
wenzelm@6269
   787
* HOL, ZF: the function mk_cases, generated by the inductive
wenzelm@6269
   788
definition package, has lost an argument.  To simplify its result, it
wenzelm@6269
   789
uses the default simpset instead of a supplied list of theorems.
paulson@6141
   790
wenzelm@7215
   791
* HOL/List: the constructors of type list are now Nil and Cons;
wenzelm@7215
   792
nipkow@7619
   793
* Simplifier: the type of the infix ML functions
wenzelm@8729
   794
        setSSolver addSSolver setSolver addSolver
nipkow@7619
   795
is now  simpset * solver -> simpset  where `solver' is a new abstract type
nipkow@7619
   796
for packaging solvers. A solver is created via
wenzelm@8729
   797
        mk_solver: string -> (thm list -> int -> tactic) -> solver
nipkow@7619
   798
where the string argument is only a comment.

wenzelm@6343
   803
* Provers/Arith/fast_lin_arith.ML contains a functor for creating a

   804
decision procedure for linear arithmetic. Currently it is used for
wenzelm@7593
   805
types `nat', `int', and `real' in HOL (see below); it can, should and
wenzelm@7593
   806
will be instantiated for other types and logics as well.
paulson@6069
   807
nipkow@7324
   808
* The simplifier now accepts rewrite rules with flexible heads, eg
nipkow@7324
   809
     hom ?f ==> ?f(?x+?y) = ?f ?x + ?f ?y
nipkow@7324
   810
  They are applied like any rule with a non-pattern lhs, i.e. by first-order

* Isabelle manuals now also available as PDF;
wenzelm@6751
   836
wenzelm@6449
   837
* theory loader rewritten from scratch (may not be fully
wenzelm@6449
   838
bug-compatible); old loadpath variable has been replaced by show_path,
wenzelm@6671
   839
add_path, del_path, reset_path functions; new operations such as
wenzelm@7593
   840
update_thy, touch_thy, remove_thy, use/update_thy_only (see also
wenzelm@7593
   841
isatool doc ref);
wenzelm@6449
   842
wenzelm@7215
   843
* improved isatool install: option -k creates KDE application icon,
wenzelm@7215
   844
option -p DIR installs standalone binaries;
wenzelm@7215
   845
wenzelm@7215
   846
* added ML_PLATFORM setting (useful for cross-platform installations);
wenzelm@7215
   847
more robust handling of platform specific ML images for SML/NJ;
wenzelm@7215
   848
wenzelm@7886
   849
* the settings environment is now statically scoped, i.e. it is never
wenzelm@7986
   850
created again in sub-processes invoked from isabelle, isatool, or
wenzelm@7886
   851
Isabelle;
wenzelm@7886
   852
wenzelm@7215
   853
* path element specification '~~' refers to '$ISABELLE_HOME';
wenzelm@7215
   854
wenzelm@6343
   855
* in locales, the "assumes" and "defines" parts may be omitted if
wenzelm@6343
   856
empty;
wenzelm@5973
   857
wenzelm@6269
   858
* new print_mode "xsymbols" for extended symbol support (e.g. genuine
wenzelm@6269
   859
long arrows);
wenzelm@6259
   860
wenzelm@6343
   861
* new print_mode "HTML";
wenzelm@6343
   862
wenzelm@6343
   863
* new flag show_tags controls display of tags of theorems (which are
wenzelm@6343
   864
basically just comments that may be attached by some tools);
wenzelm@6343
   865
wenzelm@6461
   866
* Isamode 2.6 requires patch to accomodate change of Isabelle font
wenzelm@6461

* function bind_thms stores lists of theorems (cf. bind_thm);
wenzelm@7450
   881
wenzelm@7593
   882
* new shorthand tactics ftac, eatac, datac, fatac;
wenzelm@7593
   883
wenzelm@7593
   884
* qed (and friends) now accept "" as result name; in that case the
wenzelm@7986
   885
theorem is not stored, but proper checks and presentation of the
wenzelm@7986
   886
result still apply;
wenzelm@7593
   887
wenzelm@7805
   888
* theorem database now also indexes constants "Trueprop", "all",
wenzelm@7805

** HOL arithmetic **
wenzelm@7215
   895
wenzelm@6343
   896
* There are now decision procedures for linear arithmetic over nat and
wenzelm@6343
   897
int:
nipkow@6131
   898
wenzelm@6343
   899
1. arith_tac copes with arbitrary formulae involving `=', `<', `<=',
wenzelm@6343
   900
`+', `-', `Suc', `min', `max' and numerical constants; other subterms
wenzelm@6343
   901
are treated as atomic; subformulae not involving type `nat' or `int'
wenzelm@6343
   902
are ignored; quantified subformulae are ignored unless they are
wenzelm@6343
   903
positive universal or negative existential. The tactic has to be
wenzelm@6343
   904
invoked by hand and can be a little bit slow. In particular, the
wenzelm@6343
   905
running time is exponential in the number of occurrences of `min' and
wenzelm@6343
   906
`max', and `-' on `nat'.
nipkow@6131
   907
wenzelm@6343
   908
2. fast_arith_tac is a cut-down version of arith_tac: it only takes
wenzelm@6343
   909
(negated) (in)equalities among the premises and the conclusion into
wenzelm@6343
   910
account (i.e. no compound formulae) and does not know about `min' and
wenzelm@6343
   911
`max', and `-' on `nat'. It is fast and is used automatically by the
wenzelm@6343
   912
simplifier.
nipkow@6131
   913
wenzelm@6343
   914
NB: At the moment, these decision procedures do not cope with mixed
wenzelm@6343
   915
nat/int formulae where the two parts interact, such as `m < n ==>
wenzelm@6343
   916
int(m) < int(n)'.
oheimb@6028
   917
wenzelm@7215
   918
* HOL/Numeral provides a generic theory of numerals (encoded
wenzelm@7313
   919
efficiently as bit strings); setup for types nat/int/real is in place;
wenzelm@7215
   920
INCOMPATIBILITY: since numeral syntax is now polymorphic, rather than
wenzelm@7215
   921
int, existing theories and proof scripts may require a few additional
wenzelm@7215
   922
type constraints;
wenzelm@7215
   923
wenzelm@7215
   924
* integer division and remainder can now be performed on constant
wenzelm@7215
   925
arguments;
paulson@7157
   926
wenzelm@7215
   927
* many properties of integer multiplication, division and remainder
wenzelm@7215
   928
are now available;
paulson@6922
   929
paulson@7287
   930
* An interface to the Stanford Validity Checker (SVC) is available through the
paulson@7287
   931
tactic svc_tac.  Propositional tautologies and theorems of linear arithmetic
paulson@7287
   932
are proved automatically.  SVC must be installed separately, and its results
paulson@7287
   933
must be TAKEN ON TRUST (Isabelle does not check the proofs, but tags any
paulson@7287
   934
invocation of the underlying oracle).  For SVC see

  http://verify.stanford.edu/SVC
paulson@6922

* HOL/Real/HahnBanach: the Hahn-Banach theorem for real vector spaces
wenzelm@7595
   943
(in Isabelle/Isar) -- by Gertrud Bauer;
wenzelm@7595
   944
wenzelm@7691
   945
* HOL/BCV: generic model of bytecode verification, i.e. data-flow
wenzelm@7691
   946
analysis for assembly languages with subtypes;
wenzelm@7691
   947
wenzelm@6278
   948
* HOL/TLA (Lamport's Temporal Logic of Actions): major reorganization
wenzelm@6278
   949
-- avoids syntactic ambiguities and treats state, transition, and
wenzelm@6278
   950
temporal levels more uniformly; introduces INCOMPATIBILITIES due to
wenzelm@6278
   951
changed syntax and (many) tactics;
wenzelm@6278
   952
wenzelm@7791
   953
* HOL/inductive: Now also handles more general introduction rules such
wenzelm@7791
   954
  as "ALL y. (y, x) : r --> y : acc r ==> x : acc r"; monotonicity
wenzelm@7791
   955
  theorems are now maintained within the theory (maintained via the
wenzelm@7791
   956
  "mono" attribute);
berghofe@7780
   957
wenzelm@7238
   958
* HOL/datatype: Now also handles arbitrarily branching datatypes
wenzelm@7238
   959
  (using function types) such as
wenzelm@7238
   960
wenzelm@7238
   961
  datatype 'a tree = Atom 'a | Branch "nat => 'a tree"
berghofe@7047
   962
wenzelm@7326
   963
* HOL/record: record_simproc (part of the default simpset) takes care
wenzelm@7326
   964
of selectors applied to updated records; record_split_tac is no longer
wenzelm@7327
   965
part of the default claset; update_defs may now be removed from the
wenzelm@7327
   966
simpset in many cases; COMPATIBILITY: old behavior achieved by
wenzelm@7326
   967
wenzelm@7326
   968
  claset_ref () := claset() addSWrapper record_split_wrapper;
wenzelm@7326
   969
  Delsimprocs [record_simproc]
wenzelm@7326
   970
wenzelm@6386
   971
* HOL/typedef: fixed type inference for representing set; type
wenzelm@6386
   972
arguments now have to occur explicitly on the rhs as type constraints;
wenzelm@6386
   973
paulson@7287
   974
* HOL/recdef (TFL): 'congs' syntax now expects comma separated list of theorem
paulson@7287
   975
names rather than an ML expression;
paulson@7287
   976
paulson@7287
   977
* HOL/defer_recdef (TFL): like recdef but the well-founded relation can be
paulson@7287
   978
supplied later.  Program schemes can be defined, such as
paulson@7287
   979
    "While B C s = (if B s then While B C (C s) else s)"
paulson@7287
   980
where the well-founded relation can be chosen after B and C have been given.
wenzelm@6563
   981
wenzelm@7215
   982
* HOL/List: the constructors of type list are now Nil and Cons;
wenzelm@7215
   983
INCOMPATIBILITY: while [] and infix # syntax is still there, of
wenzelm@7215
   984
course, ML tools referring to List.list.op # etc. have to be adapted;
wenzelm@7215
   985
wenzelm@7238
   986
* HOL_quantifiers flag superseded by "HOL" print mode, which is
wenzelm@7238
   987
disabled by default; run isabelle with option -m HOL to get back to
wenzelm@7238
   988
the original Gordon/HOL-style output;
wenzelm@7238
   989
wenzelm@7238
   990
* HOL/Ord.thy: new bounded quantifier syntax (input only): ALL x<y. P,
wenzelm@7238
   991
ALL x<=y. P, EX x<y. P, EX x<=y. P;
wenzelm@7238
   992
wenzelm@7238
   993
* HOL basic syntax simplified (more orthogonal): all variants of
wenzelm@7238
   994
All/Ex now support plain / symbolic / HOL notation; plain syntax for
wenzelm@7238
   995
Eps operator is provided as well: "SOME x. P[x]";
wenzelm@7238
   996
berghofe@7320
   997
* HOL/Sum.thy: sum_case has been moved to HOL/Datatype;
wenzelm@7261
   998
wenzelm@7280
   999
* HOL/Univ.thy: infix syntax <*>, <+>, <**>, <+> eliminated and made
wenzelm@7280
  1000
thus available for user theories;
wenzelm@7280
  1001
wenzelm@7300
  1002
* HOLCF/IOA/Sequents: renamed 'Cons' to 'Consq' to avoid clash with
wenzelm@7300
  1003
HOL/List; hardly an INCOMPATIBILITY since '>>' syntax is used all the
wenzelm@7300
  1004
time;
wenzelm@7300
  1005
wenzelm@7986
  1006
* HOL: new tactic smp_tac: int -> int -> tactic, which applies spec
wenzelm@7986

paulson@6064

paulson@6064
  1024
* new primrec section allows primitive recursive functions to be given
wenzelm@6269
  1025
directly (as in HOL) over datatypes and the natural numbers;
paulson@6064
  1026
wenzelm@6269
  1027
* new tactics induct_tac and exhaust_tac for induction (or case
wenzelm@6269
  1028
analysis) over datatypes and the natural numbers;
paulson@6064
  1029
paulson@6064
  1030
* the datatype declaration of type T now defines the recursor T_rec;
paulson@6064
  1031
paulson@6141
  1032
* simplification automatically does freeness reasoning for datatype
wenzelm@6269
  1033
constructors;
paulson@6141
  1034
wenzelm@6269
  1035
* automatic type-inference, with AddTCs command to insert new
wenzelm@6269
  1036
type-checking rules;
paulson@6155
  1037
wenzelm@6269
  1038
* datatype introduction rules are now added as Safe Introduction rules
wenzelm@6269
  1039
to the claset;
paulson@6155
  1040
wenzelm@6269
  1041
* the syntax "if P then x else y" is now available in addition to
wenzelm@6269

  1049
* structures Vartab / Termtab (instances of TableFun) offer efficient

tables indexed by indexname_ord / term_ord (compatible with aconv);
wenzelm@7420
  1051
wenzelm@6386
  1052
* AxClass.axclass_tac lost the theory argument;
wenzelm@6386
  1053
wenzelm@6343
  1054
* tuned current_goals_markers semantics: begin / end goal avoids
wenzelm@6343
  1055
printing empty lines;
wenzelm@6343
  1056
wenzelm@6343
  1057
* removed prs and prs_fn hook, which was broken because it did not
wenzelm@6343
  1058
include \n in its semantics, forcing writeln to add one
wenzelm@6343
  1059
uncoditionally; replaced prs_fn by writeln_fn; consider std_output:
wenzelm@6343
  1060
string -> unit if you really want to output text without newline;
wenzelm@6343
  1061
wenzelm@6343
  1062
* Symbol.output subject to print mode; INCOMPATIBILITY: defaults to
wenzelm@6343
  1063
plain output, interface builders may have to enable 'isabelle_font'
wenzelm@6343
  1064
mode to get Isabelle font glyphs as before;
wenzelm@6343
  1065
wenzelm@6343
  1066
* refined token_translation interface; INCOMPATIBILITY: output length
wenzelm@6343
  1067
now of type real instead of int;
wenzelm@6343
  1068
wenzelm@7196
  1069
* theory loader actions may be traced via new ThyInfo.add_hook
wenzelm@7196
  1070
interface (see src/Pure/Thy/thy_info.ML); example application: keep
wenzelm@7196
  1071
your own database of information attached to *whole* theories -- as
wenzelm@7196
  1072
opposed to intra-theory data slots offered via TheoryDataFun;
wenzelm@7196
  1073
wenzelm@7647
  1074
* proper handling of dangling sort hypotheses (at last!);
wenzelm@7647
  1075
Thm.strip_shyps and Drule.strip_shyps_warning take care of removing
wenzelm@7647
  1076
extra sort hypotheses that can be witnessed from the type signature;
wenzelm@7986
  1077
the force_strip_shyps flag is gone, any remaining shyps are simply
wenzelm@7986
  1078
left in the theorem (with a warning issued by strip_shyps_warning);

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES (see below for more details) ***
wenzelm@4842
  1086
wenzelm@5726
  1087
* several changes of automated proof tools;
wenzelm@5373
  1088
wenzelm@5726
  1089
* HOL: major changes to the inductive and datatype packages, including
wenzelm@5726
  1090
some minor incompatibilities of theory syntax;
berghofe@5214
  1091
wenzelm@5726
  1092
* HOL: renamed r^-1 to 'converse' from 'inverse'; 'inj_onto' is now
wenzelm@5217
  1093
called `inj_on';
paulson@5160
  1094
nipkow@5275
  1095
* HOL: removed duplicate thms in Arith:
nipkow@5275
  1096
  less_imp_add_less  should be replaced by  trans_less_add1
nipkow@5275
  1097
  le_imp_add_le      should be replaced by  trans_le_add1
paulson@5160
  1098
wenzelm@5726
  1099
* HOL: unary minus is now overloaded (new type constraints may be
wenzelm@5726
  1100
required);
paulson@5490
  1101
wenzelm@5726
  1102
* HOL and ZF: unary minus for integers is now #- instead of #~.  In
wenzelm@5726
  1103
ZF, expressions such as n#-1 must be changed to n#- 1, since #-1 is
wenzelm@5726
  1104
now taken as an integer constant.
paulson@5541
  1105
wenzelm@5726
  1106
* Pure: ML function 'theory_of' renamed to 'theory';

nipkow@5657
  1111
* Simplifier:
nipkow@5657
  1112
  1. Asm_full_simp_tac is now more aggressive.
nipkow@5657
  1113
     1. It will sometimes reorient premises if that increases their power to
nipkow@5657
  1114
        simplify.
nipkow@5657
  1115
     2. It does no longer proceed strictly from left to right but may also
nipkow@5657
  1116
        rotate premises to achieve further simplification.
nipkow@5657
  1117
     For compatibility reasons there is now Asm_lr_simp_tac which is like the
nipkow@5657
  1118
     old Asm_full_simp_tac in that it does not rotate premises.
nipkow@5657
  1119
  2. The simplifier now knows a little bit about nat-arithmetic.
nipkow@4880
  1120
wenzelm@5127
  1121
* Classical reasoner: wrapper mechanism for the classical reasoner now
wenzelm@5127
  1122
allows for selected deletion of wrappers, by introduction of names for
wenzelm@5127
  1123
wrapper functionals.  This implies that addbefore, addSbefore,
wenzelm@5127
  1124
addaltern, and addSaltern now take a pair (name, tactic) as argument,
wenzelm@5127
  1125
and that adding two tactics with the same name overwrites the first
wenzelm@5127
  1126
one (emitting a warning).
oheimb@4824
  1127
  type wrapper = (int -> tactic) -> (int -> tactic)
oheimb@4649
  1128
  setWrapper, setSWrapper, compWrapper and compSWrapper are replaced by
oheimb@4824
  1129
  addWrapper, addSWrapper: claset * (string * wrapper) -> claset
oheimb@4824
  1130
  delWrapper, delSWrapper: claset *  string            -> claset
oheimb@4649
  1131
  getWrapper is renamed to appWrappers, getSWrapper to appSWrappers;
oheimb@4649
  1132
wenzelm@5705
  1133
* Classical reasoner: addbefore/addSbefore now have APPEND/ORELSE
wenzelm@5726
  1134
semantics; addbefore now affects only the unsafe part of step_tac
wenzelm@5726
  1135
etc.; this affects addss/auto_tac/force_tac, so EXISTING PROOFS MAY
wenzelm@5726
  1136
FAIL, but proofs should be fixable easily, e.g. by replacing Auto_tac
wenzelm@5726
  1137
by Force_tac;
oheimb@5524
  1138
wenzelm@5726
  1139
* Classical reasoner: setwrapper to setWrapper and compwrapper to
wenzelm@5726
  1140
compWrapper; added safe wrapper (and access functions for it);
oheimb@5524
  1141
wenzelm@5127
  1142
* HOL/split_all_tac is now much faster and fails if there is nothing
wenzelm@5726
  1143
to split.  Some EXISTING PROOFS MAY REQUIRE ADAPTION because the order
wenzelm@5726
  1144
and the names of the automatically generated variables have changed.
wenzelm@5726
  1145
split_all_tac has moved within claset() from unsafe wrappers to safe
wenzelm@5726
  1146
wrappers, which means that !!-bound variables are split much more
wenzelm@5726
  1147
aggressively, and safe_tac and clarify_tac now split such variables.
wenzelm@5726
  1148
If this splitting is not appropriate, use delSWrapper "split_all_tac".
wenzelm@5726
  1149
Note: the same holds for record_split_tac, which does the job of
wenzelm@5726
  1150
split_all_tac for record fields.
wenzelm@5127
  1151
wenzelm@5726
  1152
* HOL/Simplifier: Rewrite rules for case distinctions can now be added
wenzelm@5726
  1153
permanently to the default simpset using Addsplits just like
wenzelm@5726
  1154
Addsimps. They can be removed via Delsplits just like
wenzelm@5726
  1155
Delsimps. Lower-case versions are also available.
wenzelm@5127
  1156
wenzelm@5726
  1157
* HOL/Simplifier: The rule split_if is now part of the default
wenzelm@5726
  1158
simpset. This means that the simplifier will eliminate all occurrences
wenzelm@5726
  1159
of if-then-else in the conclusion of a goal. To prevent this, you can
wenzelm@5726
  1160
either remove split_if completely from the default simpset by
wenzelm@5726
  1161
`Delsplits [split_if]' or remove it in a specific call of the
wenzelm@5726
  1162
simplifier using `... delsplits [split_if]'.  You can also add/delete
wenzelm@5726
  1163
other case splitting rules to/from the default simpset: every datatype
wenzelm@5726
  1164
generates suitable rules `split_t_case' and `split_t_case_asm' (where
wenzelm@5726
  1165
t is the name of the datatype).
wenzelm@5127
  1166
wenzelm@5726
  1167
* Classical reasoner / Simplifier combination: new force_tac (and
wenzelm@5127
  1168
derivatives Force_tac, force) combines rewriting and classical
wenzelm@5127
  1169
reasoning (and whatever other tools) similarly to auto_tac, but is
wenzelm@5726
  1170
aimed to solve the given subgoal completely.

wenzelm@5217
  1175
* new top-level commands `Goal' and `Goalw' that improve upon `goal'
wenzelm@5127
  1176
and `goalw': the theory is no longer needed as an explicit argument -
wenzelm@5127
  1177
the current theory context is used; assumptions are no longer returned
wenzelm@5127
  1178
at the ML-level unless one of them starts with ==> or !!; it is
wenzelm@5217
  1179
recommended to convert to these new commands using isatool fixgoal
wenzelm@5217
  1180

wenzelm@5217
  1182
* new top-level commands 'thm' and 'thms' for retrieving theorems from

paulson@4806
  1184
paulson@5722
  1185
* new theory section 'locale' for declaring constants, assumptions and
paulson@5722
  1186

(e.g. package initialization);
wenzelm@4869
  1192
wenzelm@5131
  1193
* the distribution now includes Isabelle icons: see

wenzelm@5363

nipkow@5709
  1211
wenzelm@5217
  1212
* HOL/inductive package reorganized and improved: now supports mutual
paulson@5267
  1213
definitions such as

      evenI "n : ODD ==> Suc n : EVEN"
wenzelm@5217
  1220
wenzelm@5217
  1221
new theorem list "elims" contains an elimination rule for each of the
wenzelm@5217
  1222
recursive sets; inductive definitions now handle disjunctive premises
wenzelm@5217
  1223
correctly (also ZF);
berghofe@5214
  1224
wenzelm@5217
  1225
INCOMPATIBILITIES: requires Inductive as an ancestor; component
wenzelm@5217
  1226
"mutual_induct" no longer exists - the induction rule is always
wenzelm@5217
  1227
contained in "induct";
wenzelm@5217
  1228
wenzelm@5217
  1229
wenzelm@5217
  1230
* HOL/datatype package re-implemented and greatly improved: now
paulson@5267
  1231
supports mutually recursive datatypes such as
wenzelm@5217
  1232
wenzelm@5217
  1233
  datatype
wenzelm@5217
  1234
    'a aexp = IF_THEN_ELSE ('a bexp) ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
  1235
            | SUM ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
  1236
            | DIFF ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
  1237
            | NUM 'a
wenzelm@5217
  1238
  and
wenzelm@5217
  1239
    'a bexp = LESS ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
  1240
            | AND ('a bexp) ('a bexp)
wenzelm@5217
  1241
            | OR ('a bexp) ('a bexp)
wenzelm@5217
  1242
paulson@5267
  1243
as well as indirectly recursive datatypes such as
berghofe@5214
  1244
wenzelm@5217
  1245
  datatype
wenzelm@5217
  1246
    ('a, 'b) term = Var 'a
wenzelm@5217

                  | App 'b ((('a, 'b) term) list)
berghofe@5214
  1248
wenzelm@5217
  1249
The new tactic  mutual_induct_tac [<var_1>, ..., <var_n>] i  performs
wenzelm@5217
  1250
induction on mutually / indirectly recursive datatypes.
wenzelm@5217
  1251
wenzelm@5217
  1252
Primrec equations are now stored in theory and can be accessed via
wenzelm@5217
  1253
<function_name>.simps.
wenzelm@5217
  1254
wenzelm@5217
  1255
INCOMPATIBILITIES:
berghofe@5214
  1256
wenzelm@5217
  1257
  - Theories using datatypes must now have theory Datatype as an
wenzelm@5217
  1258
    ancestor.
wenzelm@5217
  1259
  - The specific <typename>.induct_tac no longer exists - use the
wenzelm@5217
  1260
    generic induct_tac instead.
berghofe@5226
  1261
  - natE has been renamed to nat.exhaust - use exhaust_tac
wenzelm@5217
  1262
    instead of res_inst_tac ... natE. Note that the variable
berghofe@5226
  1263
    names in nat.exhaust differ from the names in natE, this
wenzelm@5217
  1264
    may cause some "fragile" proofs to fail.
wenzelm@5217
  1265
  - The theorems split_<typename>_case and split_<typename>_case_asm
wenzelm@5217
  1266
    have been renamed to <typename>.split and <typename>.split_asm.
wenzelm@5217
  1267
  - Since default sorts of type variables are now handled correctly,
wenzelm@5217
  1268
    some datatype definitions may have to be annotated with explicit
wenzelm@5217
  1269
    sort constraints.
wenzelm@5217
  1270
  - Primrec definitions no longer require function name and type
wenzelm@5217
  1271
    of recursive argument.
berghofe@5214
  1272
wenzelm@5217
  1273
Consider using isatool fixdatatype to adapt your theories and proof
wenzelm@5217
  1274
scripts to the new package (backup your sources first!).
wenzelm@5217
  1275
wenzelm@5217
  1276
wenzelm@5726
  1277
* HOL/record package: considerably improved implementation; now
wenzelm@5726
  1278
includes concrete syntax for record types, terms, updates; theorems
wenzelm@5726
  1279
for surjective pairing and splitting !!-bound record variables; proof
wenzelm@5726
  1280
support is as follows:
wenzelm@5726
  1281
wenzelm@5726
  1282
  1) standard conversions (selectors or updates applied to record
wenzelm@5726
  1283
constructor terms) are part of the standard simpset;
wenzelm@5726
  1284
wenzelm@5726
  1285
  2) inject equations of the form ((x, y) = (x', y')) == x=x' & y=y' are
wenzelm@5726
  1286
made part of standard simpset and claset via addIffs;
wenzelm@5726
  1287
wenzelm@5726
  1288
  3) a tactic for record field splitting (record_split_tac) is part of
wenzelm@5726
  1289
the standard claset (addSWrapper);
wenzelm@5726
  1290
wenzelm@5726
  1291
To get a better idea about these rules you may retrieve them via
wenzelm@5726
  1292
something like 'thms "foo.simps"' or 'thms "foo.iffs"', where "foo" is
wenzelm@5726
  1293
the name of your record type.
wenzelm@5726
  1294
wenzelm@5726
  1295
The split tactic 3) conceptually simplifies by the following rule:
wenzelm@5726
  1296
wenzelm@5726
  1297
  "(!!x. PROP ?P x) == (!!a b. PROP ?P (a, b))"
wenzelm@5726
  1298
wenzelm@5726
  1299
Thus any record variable that is bound by meta-all will automatically
wenzelm@5726
  1300
blow up into some record constructor term, consequently the
wenzelm@5726
  1301
simplifications of 1), 2) apply.  Thus force_tac, auto_tac etc. shall
wenzelm@5726
  1302
solve record problems automatically.
wenzelm@5726
  1303
berghofe@5214
  1304
wenzelm@5125
  1305
* reorganized the main HOL image: HOL/Integ and String loaded by
wenzelm@5125
  1306
default; theory Main includes everything;
wenzelm@5125
  1307
paulson@5650
  1308
* automatic simplification of integer sums and comparisons, using cancellation;
paulson@5650
  1309
oheimb@5526
  1310
* added option_map_eq_Some and not_Some_eq to the default simpset and claset;
wenzelm@5127
  1311
wenzelm@5127
  1312
* added disj_not1 = "(~P | Q) = (P --> Q)" to the default simpset;
wenzelm@5127
  1313
wenzelm@5127
  1314
* many new identities for unions, intersections, set difference, etc.;
wenzelm@5127
  1315
wenzelm@5127
  1316
* expand_if, expand_split, expand_sum_case and expand_nat_case are now
wenzelm@5127
  1317
called split_if, split_split, split_sum_case and split_nat_case (to go
wenzelm@5127
  1318
with add/delsplits);
wenzelm@5125
  1319
wenzelm@5127
  1320
* HOL/Prod introduces simplification procedure unit_eq_proc rewriting
wenzelm@5127
  1321
(?x::unit) = (); this is made part of the default simpset, which COULD
wenzelm@5127
  1322
MAKE EXISTING PROOFS FAIL under rare circumstances (consider
wenzelm@5207
  1323
'Delsimprocs [unit_eq_proc];' as last resort); also note that
wenzelm@5207
  1324
unit_abs_eta_conv is added in order to counter the effect of
wenzelm@5207
  1325
unit_eq_proc on (%u::unit. f u), replacing it by f rather than by
wenzelm@5207
  1326
%u.f();
wenzelm@5125
  1327
wenzelm@5217
  1328
* HOL/Fun INCOMPATIBILITY: `inj_onto' is now called `inj_on' (which
wenzelm@5217
  1329
makes more sense);
berghofe@5109
  1330
paulson@5475
  1331
* HOL/Set INCOMPATIBILITY: rule `equals0D' is now a well-formed destruct rule;
paulson@5475
  1332
  It and 'sym RS equals0D' are now in the default  claset, giving automatic
paulson@5475
  1333
  disjointness reasoning but breaking a few old proofs.
paulson@5267
  1334
wenzelm@5217
  1335
* HOL/Relation INCOMPATIBILITY: renamed the relational operator r^-1
wenzelm@5217
  1336
to 'converse' from 'inverse' (for compatibility with ZF and some
wenzelm@5217
  1337
literature);
wenzelm@5085
  1338
wenzelm@5127
  1339
* HOL/recdef can now declare non-recursive functions, with {} supplied as
wenzelm@5127
  1340
the well-founded relation;
oheimb@4838
  1341
paulson@5490
  1342
* HOL/Set INCOMPATIBILITY: the complement of set A is now written -A instead of
paulson@5490
  1343
    Compl A.  The "Compl" syntax remains available as input syntax for this
paulson@5490
  1344
    release ONLY.
paulson@5490
  1345
wenzelm@5127

  1347
    f(a:=b) == %x. if x=a then b else f x
wenzelm@5127
  1348
may also be iterated as in f(a:=b,c:=d,...);
nipkow@5077

paulson@4899
  1351
nipkow@5282

nipkow@5282

  1354
    list position. May also be iterated as in xs[i:=a,j:=b,...].
nipkow@5428
  1355
  - new function `upt' written [i..j(] which generates the list
nipkow@5428
  1356
    [i,i+1,...,j-1], i.e. the upper bound is excluded. To include the upper
nipkow@5428
  1357
    bound write [i..j], which is a shorthand for [i..j+1(].
nipkow@5282
  1358
  - new lexicographic orderings and corresponding wellfoundedness theorems.
paulson@4779
  1359
wenzelm@5127
  1360
* HOL/Arith:
wenzelm@5127
  1361
  - removed 'pred' (predecessor) function;
wenzelm@5127
  1362
  - generalized some theorems about n-1;
wenzelm@5127
  1363
  - many new laws about "div" and "mod";
wenzelm@5127
  1364
  - new laws about greatest common divisors (see theory ex/Primes);
oheimb@4766
  1365
wenzelm@5127
  1366

wenzelm@4842
  1367
instead of "inverse";
wenzelm@4711
  1368
nipkow@5651
  1369

nipkow@5651
  1377
* directory HOL/Hoare: a new version of Hoare logic which permits many-sorted

  programs, i.e. different program variables may have different types.
nipkow@5651
  1379
paulson@5142

paulson@5142
  1381
  [previously, this check worked only if the rewrite rule was unconditional]
paulson@5308
  1382

wenzelm@5251
  1410
* Pure: several new basic modules made available for general use, see
wenzelm@5251
  1411
also src/Pure/README;
wenzelm@5207
  1412
wenzelm@5008
  1413
* improved the theory data mechanism to support encapsulation (data
wenzelm@5008
  1414
kind name replaced by private Object.kind, acting as authorization
wenzelm@5373
  1415
key); new type-safe user interface via functor TheoryDataFun; generic
wenzelm@5373
  1416
print_data function becomes basically useless;
wenzelm@5002
  1417
wenzelm@5251
  1418
* removed global_names compatibility flag -- all theory declarations
wenzelm@5251
  1419
are qualified by default;
wenzelm@5251
  1420
wenzelm@5085
  1421
* module Pure/Syntax now offers quote / antiquote translation
wenzelm@5085
  1422
functions (useful for Hoare logic etc. with implicit dependencies);
wenzelm@5373
  1423
see HOL/ex/Antiquote for an example use;
wenzelm@5085
  1424
wenzelm@5127
  1425
* Simplifier now offers conversions (asm_)(full_)rewrite: simpset ->
wenzelm@5127
  1426
cterm -> thm;
wenzelm@5127
  1427
wenzelm@5207
  1428
* new tactical CHANGED_GOAL for checking that a tactic modifies a
wenzelm@5207
  1429
subgoal;
paulson@5142
  1430
wenzelm@5251
  1431
* Display.print_goals function moved to Locale.print_goals;
wenzelm@5251
  1432
wenzelm@5731
  1433
* standard print function for goals supports current_goals_markers
wenzelm@5731
  1434
variable for marking begin of proof, end of proof, start of goal; the
wenzelm@5731
  1435
default is ("", "", ""); setting current_goals_markers := ("<proof>",
wenzelm@5731
  1436
"</proof>", "<goal>") causes SGML like tagged proof state printing,

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES (see below for more details) ***
wenzelm@4410
  1445
wenzelm@4410
  1446
* changed lexical syntax of terms / types: dots made part of long
wenzelm@4410
  1447
identifiers, e.g. "%x.x" no longer possible, should be "%x. x";
wenzelm@4410
  1448
wenzelm@4410
  1449
* simpset (and claset) reference variable replaced by functions
wenzelm@4410
  1450
simpset / simpset_ref;
wenzelm@4410
  1451
wenzelm@4410
  1452
* no longer supports theory aliases (via merge) and non-trivial
wenzelm@4410
  1453
implicit merge of thms' signatures;
wenzelm@4410
  1454
wenzelm@4410
  1455
* most internal names of constants changed due to qualified names;
wenzelm@4410
  1456
wenzelm@4410
  1457
* changed Pure/Sequence interface (see Pure/seq.ML);
wenzelm@4410
  1458
wenzelm@3454
  1459
paulson@3715
  1460
*** General Changes ***
paulson@3715
  1461
wenzelm@4174
  1462
* hierachically structured name spaces (for consts, types, axms, thms
wenzelm@3943
  1463
etc.); new lexical class 'longid' (e.g. Foo.bar.x) may render much of
wenzelm@4108
  1464
old input syntactically incorrect (e.g. "%x.x"); COMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@4108
  1465
isatool fixdots ensures space after dots (e.g. "%x. x"); set
wenzelm@4174
  1466
long_names for fully qualified output names; NOTE: ML programs
wenzelm@4174
  1467
(special tactics, packages etc.) referring to internal names may have
wenzelm@4174
  1468
to be adapted to cope with fully qualified names; in case of severe
wenzelm@4174
  1469
backward campatibility problems try setting 'global_names' at compile
wenzelm@4174
  1470
time to have enrything declared within a flat name space; one may also
wenzelm@4174
  1471
fine tune name declarations in theories via the 'global' and 'local'
wenzelm@4174
  1472
section;
wenzelm@4108
  1473
wenzelm@4108
  1474
* reimplemented the implicit simpset and claset using the new anytype
wenzelm@4108
  1475
data filed in signatures; references simpset:simpset ref etc. are
wenzelm@4108
  1476
replaced by functions simpset:unit->simpset and
wenzelm@4108
  1477
simpset_ref:unit->simpset ref; COMPATIBILITY: use isatool fixclasimp
wenzelm@4108
  1478
to patch your ML files accordingly;
paulson@3856
  1479
wenzelm@3857
  1480
* HTML output now includes theory graph data for display with Java
wenzelm@3857
  1481
applet or isatool browser; data generated automatically via isatool
wenzelm@3901
  1482
usedir (see -i option, ISABELLE_USEDIR_OPTIONS);
wenzelm@3857
  1483
paulson@3856
  1484
* defs may now be conditional; improved rewrite_goals_tac to handle
paulson@3856
  1485
conditional equations;
paulson@3856
  1486
wenzelm@4174
  1487
* defs now admits additional type arguments, using TYPE('a) syntax;
wenzelm@4174
  1488
wenzelm@3901
  1489
* theory aliases via merge (e.g. M=A+B+C) no longer supported, always
wenzelm@3901
  1490
creates a new theory node; implicit merge of thms' signatures is
wenzelm@4112
  1491
restricted to 'trivial' ones; COMPATIBILITY: one may have to use
wenzelm@3901
  1492
transfer:theory->thm->thm in (rare) cases;
wenzelm@3901
  1493
wenzelm@3968
  1494
* improved handling of draft signatures / theories; draft thms (and
wenzelm@3968
  1495
ctyps, cterms) are automatically promoted to real ones;
wenzelm@3968
  1496
wenzelm@3901
  1497
* slightly changed interfaces for oracles: admit many per theory, named
wenzelm@3901
  1498
(e.g. oracle foo = mlfun), additional name argument for invoke_oracle;
wenzelm@3901
  1499
wenzelm@3901
  1500
* print_goals: optional output of const types (set show_consts and
wenzelm@3901
  1501
show_types);
wenzelm@3851
  1502
wenzelm@4388
  1503
* improved output of warnings (###) and errors (***);
wenzelm@3697
  1504
paulson@4178
  1505
* subgoal_tac displays a warning if the new subgoal has type variables;
paulson@4178
  1506
paulson@3715
  1507
* removed old README and Makefiles;
wenzelm@3697
  1508
paulson@3856
  1509
* replaced print_goals_ref hook by print_current_goals_fn and result_error_fn;
wenzelm@3670
  1510
paulson@3715
  1511
* removed obsolete init_pps and init_database;
paulson@3715
  1512
paulson@3715
  1513
* deleted the obsolete tactical STATE, which was declared by
paulson@3715
  1514
    fun STATE tacfun st = tacfun st st;
paulson@3715
  1515
wenzelm@4388
  1516
* cd and use now support path variables, e.g. $ISABELLE_HOME, or ~
wenzelm@4388
  1517
(which abbreviates $HOME);
wenzelm@4269
  1518
wenzelm@4269
  1519
* changed Pure/Sequence interface (see Pure/seq.ML); COMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@4269
  1520
use isatool fixseq to adapt your ML programs (this works for fully
wenzelm@4269
  1521
qualified references to the Sequence structure only!);
wenzelm@4269
  1522
wenzelm@4381
  1523
* use_thy no longer requires writable current directory; it always
wenzelm@4381
  1524
reloads .ML *and* .thy file, if either one is out of date;
wenzelm@4269
  1525
paulson@3715
  1526
paulson@3715
  1527
*** Classical Reasoner ***
paulson@3715
  1528
wenzelm@3744
  1529
* Clarify_tac, clarify_tac, clarify_step_tac, Clarify_step_tac: new
wenzelm@3744
  1530
tactics that use classical reasoning to simplify a subgoal without
wenzelm@3744
  1531
splitting it into several subgoals;
paulson@3715
  1532
paulson@3719
  1533
* Safe_tac: like safe_tac but uses the default claset;
paulson@3719
  1534
paulson@3715
  1535
paulson@3715
  1536
*** Simplifier ***
paulson@3715
  1537
paulson@3715
  1538
* added simplification meta rules:
paulson@3715
  1539
    (asm_)(full_)simplify: simpset -> thm -> thm;
paulson@3715
  1540
paulson@3715
  1541
* simplifier.ML no longer part of Pure -- has to be loaded by object
paulson@3715
  1542
logics (again);
paulson@3715
  1543
paulson@3715
  1544
* added prems argument to simplification procedures;
paulson@3715
  1545
paulson@4325
  1546
* HOL, FOL, ZF: added infix function `addsplits':
paulson@4325
  1547
  instead of `<simpset> setloop (split_tac <thms>)'
paulson@4325
  1548
  you can simply write `<simpset> addsplits <thms>'
paulson@4325
  1549
paulson@3715
  1550
paulson@3715
  1551
*** Syntax ***
paulson@3715
  1552
wenzelm@4174
  1553
* TYPE('a) syntax for type reflection terms;
wenzelm@4174
  1554
wenzelm@3985
  1555
* no longer handles consts with name "" -- declare as 'syntax' instead;
paulson@3856
  1556
paulson@3856
  1557
* pretty printer: changed order of mixfix annotation preference (again!);
wenzelm@3846
  1558
paulson@3715
  1559
* Pure: fixed idt/idts vs. pttrn/pttrns syntactic categories;
paulson@3715
  1560
paulson@3715
  1561
paulson@3715
  1562
*** HOL ***
paulson@3715
  1563
wenzelm@5726
  1564
* HOL: there is a new splitter `split_asm_tac' that can be used e.g.
oheimb@4189
  1565
  with `addloop' of the simplifier to faciliate case splitting in premises.
oheimb@4189
  1566
nipkow@4035
  1567
* HOL/TLA: Stephan Merz's formalization of Lamport's Temporal Logic of Actions;
wenzelm@3985
  1568
wenzelm@3985
  1569
* HOL/Auth: new protocol proofs including some for the Internet
nipkow@4035
  1570
  protocol TLS;
wenzelm@3985
  1571
wenzelm@4125
  1572
* HOL/Map: new theory of `maps' a la VDM;
nipkow@3982
  1573
wenzelm@4335
  1574
* HOL/simplifier: simplification procedures nat_cancel_sums for
wenzelm@4335
  1575
cancelling out common nat summands from =, <, <= (in)equalities, or
wenzelm@4335
  1576
differences; simplification procedures nat_cancel_factor for
wenzelm@4335
  1577
cancelling common factor from =, <, <= (in)equalities over natural
wenzelm@4373
  1578
sums; nat_cancel contains both kinds of procedures, it is installed by
wenzelm@4373
  1579
default in Arith.thy -- this COULD MAKE EXISTING PROOFS FAIL;
wenzelm@4335
  1580
nipkow@3580
  1581
* HOL/simplifier: terms of the form
paulson@4325
  1582
  `? x. P1(x) & ... & Pn(x) & x=t & Q1(x) & ... Qn(x)'  (or t=x)
nipkow@3580
  1583
  are rewritten to
nipkow@4035
  1584
  `P1(t) & ... & Pn(t) & Q1(t) & ... Qn(t)',
nipkow@4035
  1585
  and those of the form
paulson@4325
  1586
  `! x. P1(x) & ... & Pn(x) & x=t & Q1(x) & ... Qn(x) --> R(x)'  (or t=x)
nipkow@4035
  1587
  are rewritten to
nipkow@4035
  1588
  `P1(t) & ... & Pn(t) & Q1(t) & ... Qn(t) --> R(t)',
nipkow@4035
  1589
nipkow@4035
  1590
* HOL/datatype
nipkow@4035
  1591
  Each datatype `t' now comes with a theorem `split_t_case' of the form
nipkow@3580
  1592
nipkow@4035
  1593
  P(t_case f1 ... fn x) =
nipkow@4035
  1594
     ( (!y1 ... ym1. x = C1 y1 ... ym1 --> P(f1 y1 ... ym1)) &
nipkow@4035
  1595
        ...
oheimb@4189
  1596
       (!y1 ... ymn. x = Cn y1 ... ymn --> P(f1 y1 ... ymn))
nipkow@4035
  1597
     )
nipkow@4035
  1598
oheimb@4930
  1599
  and a theorem `split_t_case_asm' of the form
oheimb@4189
  1600
oheimb@4189
  1601
  P(t_case f1 ... fn x) =
oheimb@4189
  1602
    ~( (? y1 ... ym1. x = C1 y1 ... ym1 & ~P(f1 y1 ... ym1)) |
oheimb@4189
  1603
        ...
oheimb@4189
  1604
       (? y1 ... ymn. x = Cn y1 ... ymn & ~P(f1 y1 ... ymn))
oheimb@4189
  1605
     )
oheimb@4930
  1606
  which can be added to a simpset via `addsplits'. The existing theorems
oheimb@4930
  1607
  expand_list_case and expand_option_case have been renamed to
oheimb@4930
  1608
  split_list_case and split_option_case.
oheimb@4189
  1609
nipkow@4361
  1610
* HOL/Arithmetic:
nipkow@4361
  1611
  - `pred n' is automatically converted to `n-1'.
nipkow@4361
  1612
    Users are strongly encouraged not to use `pred' any longer,
nipkow@4361
  1613
    because it will disappear altogether at some point.
nipkow@4361
  1614
  - Users are strongly encouraged to write "0 < n" rather than
nipkow@4361
  1615
    "n ~= 0". Theorems and proof tools have been modified towards this
nipkow@4361
  1616
    `standard'.
nipkow@4357
  1617
nipkow@4502
  1618
* HOL/Lists:
nipkow@4502
  1619
  the function "set_of_list" has been renamed "set" (and its theorems too);
nipkow@4502
  1620
  the function "nth" now takes its arguments in the reverse order and
nipkow@4502
  1621
  has acquired the infix notation "!" as in "xs!n".
paulson@3570
  1622
paulson@4154
  1623
* HOL/Set: UNIV is now a constant and is no longer translated to Compl{};
paulson@4154
  1624
paulson@4154
  1625
* HOL/Set: The operator (UN x.B x) now abbreviates (UN x:UNIV. B x) and its
paulson@4154
  1626
  specialist theorems (like UN1_I) are gone.  Similarly for (INT x.B x);
paulson@4154
  1627
wenzelm@4575
  1628
* HOL/record: extensible records with schematic structural subtyping
wenzelm@4575
  1629
(single inheritance); EXPERIMENTAL version demonstrating the encoding,
wenzelm@4575
  1630
still lacks various theorems and concrete record syntax;
wenzelm@4575
  1631
wenzelm@4125
  1632
paulson@3715
  1633
*** HOLCF ***
wenzelm@3535
  1634
wenzelm@4125
  1635
* removed "axioms" and "generated by" sections;
wenzelm@4125
  1636
oheimb@4123
  1637
* replaced "ops" section by extended "consts" section, which is capable of
wenzelm@4125
  1638
  handling the continuous function space "->" directly;
wenzelm@4125
  1639
wenzelm@4125
  1640
* domain package:
wenzelm@4125
  1641
  . proves theorems immediately and stores them in the theory,
wenzelm@4125
  1642
  . creates hierachical name space,
wenzelm@4125
  1643
  . now uses normal mixfix annotations (instead of cinfix...),
wenzelm@4125
  1644
  . minor changes to some names and values (for consistency),
wenzelm@4125
  1645
  . e.g. cases -> casedist, dists_eq -> dist_eqs, [take_lemma] -> take_lemmas,
wenzelm@4125
  1646
  . separator between mutual domain defs: changed "," to "and",
wenzelm@4125
  1647
  . improved handling of sort constraints;  now they have to
wenzelm@4125
  1648
    appear on the left-hand side of the equations only;
oheimb@4123
  1649
oheimb@4123
  1650
* fixed LAM <x,y,zs>.b syntax;
wenzelm@3567
  1651
wenzelm@3744
  1652
* added extended adm_tac to simplifier in HOLCF -- can now discharge
wenzelm@3744
  1653
adm (%x. P (t x)), where P is chainfinite and t continuous;
wenzelm@3579
  1654
wenzelm@3579
  1655
paulson@3719
  1656
*** FOL and ZF ***
paulson@3719
  1657
wenzelm@5726
  1658
* FOL: there is a new splitter `split_asm_tac' that can be used e.g.
oheimb@4189
  1659
  with `addloop' of the simplifier to faciliate case splitting in premises.
oheimb@4189
  1660
wenzelm@3744
  1661
* qed_spec_mp, qed_goal_spec_mp, qed_goalw_spec_mp are available, as
wenzelm@3744
  1662
in HOL, they strip ALL and --> from proved theorems;

paulson@3002
  1670
paulson@3002
  1671
* new utilities to build / run / maintain Isabelle etc. (in parts
paulson@3002
  1672
still somewhat experimental); old Makefiles etc. still functional;
wenzelm@2971
  1673
wenzelm@3205
  1674
* new 'Isabelle System Manual';
wenzelm@3205
  1675

  1676
* INSTALL text, together with ./configure and ./build scripts;
wenzelm@2773
  1677
wenzelm@3006
  1678
* reimplemented type inference for greater efficiency, better error
wenzelm@3006
  1679
messages and clean internal interface;
paulson@3002
  1680
paulson@3002
  1681
* prlim command for dealing with lots of subgoals (an easier way of

wenzelm@2756
  1695
arbitrary ways, dependent on their type (free, bound, tfree, ...) and
wenzelm@3116
  1696
the current print_mode); IMPORTANT: user print translation functions
