New in this Isabelle version

wenzelm@25522
     7
*** General ***
wenzelm@25522
     8
wenzelm@25579
     9
* Syntax: symbol \<chi> is now considered a letter.  Potential
wenzelm@25579
    10
INCOMPATIBILITY in identifier syntax etc.
wenzelm@25579
    11
wenzelm@25579
    12
* Outer syntax: string tokens may contain arbitrary character codes
wenzelm@25579
    13
specified via 3 decimal digits (as in SML).  E.g. "foo\095bar" for
wenzelm@25579
    14
"foo_bar".
wenzelm@25522
    15
wenzelm@26006
    16
* Outer syntax: string tokens no longer admit escaped white space,
wenzelm@26006
    17
which was an accidental (undocumented) feature.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use
wenzelm@26006
    18
white space directly.
wenzelm@26006
    19
wenzelm@25994
    20
* Theory loader: use_thy (and similar operations) no longer set the
wenzelm@25994
    21
implicit ML context, which was occasionally hard to predict and in
wenzelm@25994
    22
conflict with concurrency.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use ML within Isar which
wenzelm@25994
    23
provides a proper context already.
wenzelm@25994
    24
wenzelm@26323
    25
* Theory loader: old-style ML proof scripts being *attached* to a thy
wenzelm@26323
    26
file are no longer supported.  INCOMPATIBILITY, regular 'uses' and
wenzelm@26323
    27
'use' within a theory file will do the job.
wenzelm@26323
    28
wenzelm@26650
    29
* Name space merge now observes canonical order, i.e. the second space
wenzelm@26650
    30
is inserted into the first one, while existing entries in the first
wenzelm@26659
    31
space take precedence.  INCOMPATIBILITY in rare situations, may try to
wenzelm@26650
    32
swap theory imports.
wenzelm@26650
    33
wenzelm@25522

haftmann@25502
    35
*** Pure ***
haftmann@25502
    36
wenzelm@26718
    37
* Context-dependent token translations.  Default setup reverts locally
wenzelm@26718
    38
fixed variables, and adds hilite markup for undeclared frees.
wenzelm@26718
    39
berghofe@26681
    40
* Unused theorems can be found using the new command 'unused_thms'.
berghofe@26681
    41
There are three ways of invoking it:
berghofe@26681
    42
berghofe@26681
    43
(1) unused_thms
berghofe@26681
    44
     Only finds unused theorems in the current theory.
berghofe@26681
    45
berghofe@26681
    46
(2) unused_thms thy_1 ... thy_n -
berghofe@26681
    47
     Finds unused theorems in the current theory and all of its ancestors,
berghofe@26681
    48
     excluding the theories thy_1 ... thy_n and all of their ancestors.
berghofe@26681
    49
berghofe@26681
    50
(3) unused_thms thy_1 ... thy_n - thy'_1 ... thy'_m
berghofe@26681
    51
     Finds unused theorems in the theories thy'_1 ... thy'_m and all of
berghofe@26681
    52
     their ancestors, excluding the theories thy_1 ... thy_n and all of
berghofe@26681
    53
     their ancestors.
berghofe@26681
    54
wenzelm@26718
    55
In order to increase the readability of the list produced by
wenzelm@26718
    56
unused_thms, theorems that have been created by a particular instance
wenzelm@26874
    57
of a theory command such as 'inductive' or 'function' are considered
wenzelm@26874
    58
to belong to the same "group", meaning that if at least one theorem in
wenzelm@26718
    59
this group is used, the other theorems in the same group are no longer
wenzelm@26718
    60
reported as unused.  Moreover, if all theorems in the group are
wenzelm@26718
    61
unused, only one theorem in the group is displayed.
wenzelm@26718
    62
wenzelm@26718
    63
Note that proof objects have to be switched on in order for
wenzelm@26718
    64
unused_thms to work properly (i.e. !proofs must be >= 1, which is
wenzelm@26874
    65
usually the case when using Proof General with the default settings).
berghofe@26681
    66
wenzelm@26650
    67
* Authentic naming of facts disallows ad-hoc overwriting of previous
wenzelm@26650
    68
theorems within the same name space.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to remove
wenzelm@26650
    69
duplicate fact bindings, or even accidental fact duplications.  Note
wenzelm@26650
    70
that tools may maintain dynamically scoped facts systematically, using
wenzelm@26650
    71
PureThy.add_thms_dynamic.
wenzelm@26650
    72
wenzelm@26660
    73
* Command 'hide' now allows to hide from "fact" name space as well.
wenzelm@26660
    74
wenzelm@26496
    75
* Eliminated destructive theorem database, simpset, claset, and
wenzelm@26496
    76
clasimpset.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY, really need to observe linear
wenzelm@26496
    77
update of theories within ML code.
wenzelm@26479
    78
wenzelm@26650
    79
* Eliminated theory ProtoPure.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@26650
    80
wenzelm@26495
    81
* Commands 'use' and 'ML' are now purely functional, operating on
wenzelm@26479
    82
theory/local_theory.  Removed former 'ML_setup' (on theory), use 'ML'
wenzelm@26479
    83
instead.  Added 'ML_val' as mere diagnostic replacement for 'ML'.
wenzelm@26479
    84
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@26479
    85
wenzelm@26874
    86
* Command 'setup': discontinued implicit version with ML reference.
wenzelm@26434
    87
wenzelm@25970
    88
* Instantiation target allows for simultaneous specification of class
wenzelm@25970
    89
instance operations together with an instantiation proof.
wenzelm@25970
    90
Type-checking phase allows to refer to class operations uniformly.
wenzelm@25970
    91
See HOL/Complex/Complex.thy for an Isar example and
wenzelm@26180
    92
HOL/Library/Eval.thy for an ML example.
haftmann@25502
    93
wenzelm@26201
    94
* Indexing of literal facts: be more serious about including only
wenzelm@26201
    95
facts from the visible specification/proof context, but not the
wenzelm@26201
    96
background context (locale etc.).  Affects `prop` notation and method
wenzelm@26201
    97
"fact".  INCOMPATIBILITY: need to name facts explicitly in rare
wenzelm@26201
    98
situations.
wenzelm@26201
    99
wenzelm@26874
   100
* Locale proofs: default proof step now includes 'unfold_locales';
wenzelm@26874
   101
hence 'proof' without argument may be used to unfold locale
wenzelm@26874
   102
predicates.

   105
*** Document preparation ***
haftmann@26762
   106
wenzelm@26874
   107
* Antiquotation "lemma" takes a proposition and a simple method text
wenzelm@26874
   108
as argument and asserts that the proposition is provable by the
wenzelm@26874
   109
corresponding method invocation.  Prints text of proposition, as does
wenzelm@26874
   110
antiquotation "prop".  A simple method text is either a method name or
wenzelm@26874
   111
a method name plus (optional) method arguments in parentheses,
wenzelm@26874
   112
mimicking the conventions known from Isar proof text.  Useful for
wenzelm@26874
   113
illustration of presented theorems by particular examples.

wenzelm@25464
   116
*** HOL ***
wenzelm@25464
   117
wenzelm@26874
   118
* Merged theories Wellfounded_Recursion, Accessible_Part and
wenzelm@26874
   119
Wellfounded_Relations to "Wellfounded.thy".
krauss@26748
   120
haftmann@26513
   121
* Explicit class "eq" for executable equality.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@26513
   122
wenzelm@26874
   123
* Class finite no longer treats UNIV as class parameter.  Use class
wenzelm@26874
   124
enum from theory Library/Enum instead to achieve a similar effect.
haftmann@26445
   125
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@26445
   126
wenzelm@26874
   127
* Theory List: rule list_induct2 now has explicitly named cases "Nil"
wenzelm@26874
   128
and "Cons".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@26874
   129
wenzelm@26422
   130
* HOL (and FOL): renamed variables in rules imp_elim and swap.
wenzelm@26422
   131
Potential INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@26422
   132
wenzelm@26874
   133
* Theory Product_Type: duplicated lemmas split_Pair_apply and
wenzelm@26874
   134
injective_fst_snd removed, use split_eta and prod_eqI instead.
wenzelm@26874
   135
Renamed upd_fst to apfst and upd_snd to apsnd.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@26355
   136
wenzelm@26335
   137
* Theory Nat: removed redundant lemmas that merely duplicate lemmas of
wenzelm@26335
   138
the same name in theory Orderings:
wenzelm@26335
   139
wenzelm@26335
   140
  less_trans
wenzelm@26335
   141
  less_linear
wenzelm@26335
   142
  le_imp_less_or_eq
wenzelm@26335
   143
  le_less_trans
wenzelm@26335
   144
  less_le_trans
wenzelm@26335
   145
  less_not_sym
wenzelm@26335
   146
  less_asym
wenzelm@26335
   147
wenzelm@26335
   148
Renamed less_imp_le to less_imp_le_nat, and less_irrefl to
wenzelm@26335
   149
less_irrefl_nat.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY due to more general types
wenzelm@26335
   150
and different variable names.
wenzelm@26315
   151
haftmann@26231
   152
* Library/Option_ord.thy: Canonical order on option type.
haftmann@26231
   153
krauss@26197
   154
* Library/RBT.thy: New theory of red-black trees, an efficient
krauss@26197
   155
implementation of finite maps.
krauss@26197
   156
haftmann@26231
   157
* Library/Countable.thy: Type class for countable types.
haftmann@26231
   158
wenzelm@26180
   159
* Theory Int: The representation of numerals has changed.  The infix
wenzelm@26180
   160
operator BIT and the bit datatype with constructors B0 and B1 have
wenzelm@26180
   161
disappeared.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use "Int.Bit0 x" and "Int.Bit1 y" in
wenzelm@26180
   162
place of "x BIT bit.B0" and "y BIT bit.B1", respectively.  Theorems
wenzelm@26180
   163
involving BIT, B0, or B1 have been renamed with "Bit0" or "Bit1"
wenzelm@26180
   164
accordingly.
wenzelm@26180
   165
wenzelm@26180
   166
* Theory Nat: definition of <= and < on natural numbers no longer
wenzelm@26180
   167
depend on well-founded relations.  INCOMPATIBILITY.  Definitions
wenzelm@26180
   168
le_def and less_def have disappeared.  Consider lemmas not_less
wenzelm@26180
   169
[symmetric, where ?'a = nat] and less_eq [symmetric] instead.
wenzelm@26180
   170
wenzelm@26180
   171
* Theory Finite_Set: locales ACf, ACe, ACIf, ACIfSL and ACIfSLlin
wenzelm@26180
   172
(whose purpose mainly is for various fold_set functionals) have been
wenzelm@26874
   173
abandoned in favor of the existing algebraic classes
wenzelm@26180
   174
ab_semigroup_mult, comm_monoid_mult, ab_semigroup_idem_mult,
wenzelm@26180
   175
lower_semilattice (resp. upper_semilattice) and linorder.
haftmann@26139
   176
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@26041
   177
wenzelm@26180
   178
* Theory Transitive_Closure: induct and cases rules now declare proper
wenzelm@26180
   179
case_names ("base" and "step").  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@26180
   180
wenzelm@26180
   181
* Theorem Inductive.lfp_ordinal_induct generalized to complete
wenzelm@26180
   182
lattices.  The form set-specific version is available as
wenzelm@26180
   183
Inductive.lfp_ordinal_induct_set.
haftmann@26013
   184
wenzelm@26874
   185
* Renamed theorems "power.simps" to "power_int.simps".
haftmann@25961
   186
wenzelm@26180
   187
* Class semiring_div provides basic abstract properties of semirings
haftmann@25942
   188
with division and modulo operations.  Subsumes former class dvd_mod.
haftmann@25942
   189
wenzelm@26180
   190
* Merged theories IntDef, Numeral and IntArith into unified theory
wenzelm@26180
   191
Int.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@26180
   192
wenzelm@26180
   193
* Theory Library/Code_Index: type "index" now represents natural
wenzelm@26180
   194
numbers rather than integers.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@26180
   195
wenzelm@26180
   196
* New class "uminus" with operation "uminus" (split of from class
wenzelm@26180
   197
"minus" which now only has operation "minus", binary).
haftmann@25919
   198
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25919
   199
haftmann@25557
   200
* New primrec package.  Specification syntax conforms in style to
wenzelm@26180
   201
definition/function/....  No separate induction rule is provided.  The
wenzelm@26180
   202
"primrec" command distinguishes old-style and new-style specifications
haftmann@25599
   203
by syntax.  The former primrec package is now named OldPrimrecPackage.
haftmann@26355
   204
When adjusting theories, beware: constants stemming from new-style
haftmann@25609
   205
primrec specifications have authentic syntax.
haftmann@25557
   206
wenzelm@25522
   207
* Library/Multiset: {#a, b, c#} abbreviates {#a#} + {#b#} + {#c#}.
wenzelm@25522
   208
wenzelm@26180
   209
* Library/ListVector: new theory of arithmetic vector operations.
nipkow@25900
   210
wenzelm@26874
   211
* Library/Order_Relation: new theory of various orderings as sets of
wenzelm@26874
   212
pairs.  Defines preorders, partial orders, linear orders and
wenzelm@26874
   213
well-orders on sets and on types.
nipkow@26500
   214
wenzelm@25522
   215
* Constants "card", "internal_split", "option_map" now with authentic
haftmann@25919
   216
syntax.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@25522
   217
wenzelm@25522
   218
* Definitions subset_def, psubset_def, set_diff_def, Compl_def,
wenzelm@25522
   219
le_bool_def, less_bool_def, le_fun_def, less_fun_def, inf_bool_def,
wenzelm@25522
   220
sup_bool_def, Inf_bool_def, Sup_bool_def, inf_fun_def, sup_fun_def,
wenzelm@25522
   221
Inf_fun_def, Sup_fun_def, inf_set_def, sup_set_def, Inf_set_def,
wenzelm@25522
   222
Sup_set_def, le_def, less_def, option_map_def now with object
haftmann@25919
   223
equality.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@25464
   224
wenzelm@26180
   225
* Method "induction_scheme" derives user-specified induction rules
wenzelm@26874
   226
from well-founded induction and completeness of patterns. This factors
krauss@25664
   227
out some operations that are done internally by the function package
krauss@25664
   228
and makes them available separately. See "HOL/ex/Induction_Scheme.thy"
krauss@25664
   229
for examples,
krauss@25664
   230
schirmer@25705
   231
* Records. Removed K_record, and replaced it by pure lambda term
wenzelm@25726
   232
%x. c. The simplifier setup is now more robust against eta expansion.
schirmer@25705
   233
INCOMPATIBILITY: in cases explicitly referring to K_record.
wenzelm@25464
   234
wenzelm@25726
   235
* Metis prover is now an order of magnitude faster, and also works
wenzelm@25726
   236
with multithreading.
wenzelm@25726
   237
wenzelm@26874
   238
* Metis: the maximum number of clauses that can be produced from a
wenzelm@26874
   239
theorem is now given by the attribute max_clauses. Theorems that
wenzelm@26874
   240
exceed this number are ignored, with a warning printed.
wenzelm@26874
   241
wenzelm@26874
   242
* Sledgehammer no longer produces structured proofs by default. To
wenzelm@26874
   243
enable, declare [[sledgehammer_full = true]]. Attributes
wenzelm@26874
   244
reconstruction_modulus, reconstruction_sorts renamed
wenzelm@26874
   245
sledgehammer_modulus, sledgehammer_sorts.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@26874
   246
krauss@26877
   247
* More flexible generation of measure functions for termination proofs:
krauss@26877
   248
Measure functions can be declared by proving a rule of the form
krauss@26877
   249
"is_measure f" and giving it the [measure_function] attribute. The
krauss@26877
   250
"is_measure" predicate is logically meaningless (always true), and
krauss@26877
   251
just guides the heuristic.  To find suitable measure functions, the
krauss@26877
   252
termination prover sets up the goal "is_measure ?f" of the appropriate
krauss@26877
   253
type and generates all solutions by prolog-style backwards proof using
krauss@26877
   254
the declared rules.
krauss@26877
   255
krauss@26877
   256
This setup also deals with rules like 
krauss@26877
   257
krauss@26877
   258
  "is_measure f ==> is_measure (list_size f)"
krauss@26877
   259
krauss@26877
   260
which accomodates nested datatypes that recurse through lists. Similar
krauss@26877
   261
rules are predeclared for products and option types.
krauss@26877

*** ZF ***
krauss@26197
   265
wenzelm@26874
   266
* Renamed some theories to allow to loading both ZF and HOL in the
wenzelm@26874
   267
same session:
wenzelm@26874
   268
wenzelm@26874
   269
  Datatype  -> Datatype_ZF
wenzelm@26874
   270
  Inductive -> Inductive_ZF
wenzelm@26874
   271
  Int       -> Int_ZF
wenzelm@26874

wenzelm@26188
   291
wenzelm@25737
   292
* The ``print mode'' is now a thread-local value derived from a global
wenzelm@25737
   293
template (the former print_mode reference), thus access becomes
wenzelm@25737
   294
non-critical.  The global print_mode reference is for session
wenzelm@25737
   295
management only; user-code should use print_mode_value,
wenzelm@25737

print_mode_active, PrintMode.setmp etc.  INCOMPATIBILITY.

wenzelm@17754
   346
*** General ***
wenzelm@17754
   347
wenzelm@22826
   348
* More uniform information about legacy features, notably a
wenzelm@22826
   349
warning/error of "Legacy feature: ...", depending on the state of the
wenzelm@23367
   350
tolerate_legacy_features flag (default true). FUTURE INCOMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@23367
   351
legacy features will disappear eventually.
wenzelm@22826
   352
wenzelm@17918
   353
* Theory syntax: the header format ``theory A = B + C:'' has been
wenzelm@17918
   354
discontinued in favour of ``theory A imports B C begin''.  Use isatool
wenzelm@17918
   355
fixheaders to convert existing theory files.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17918
   356
wenzelm@17918
   357
* Theory syntax: the old non-Isar theory file format has been
wenzelm@17918
   358
discontinued altogether.  Note that ML proof scripts may still be used
wenzelm@17918
   359
with Isar theories; migration is usually quite simple with the ML
wenzelm@17918
   360
function use_legacy_bindings.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17918
   361
wenzelm@22871
   362
* Theory syntax: some popular names (e.g. 'class', 'declaration',
wenzelm@22871
   363
'fun', 'help', 'if') are now keywords.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use double
wenzelm@22871
   364
quotes.
wenzelm@19814
   365
wenzelm@23888
   366
* Theory loader: be more serious about observing the static theory
wenzelm@23888
   367
header specifications (including optional directories), but not the
wenzelm@24172
   368
accidental file locations of previously successful loads.  The strict
wenzelm@24172
   369
update policy of former update_thy is now already performed by
wenzelm@24172
   370
use_thy, so the former has been removed; use_thys updates several
wenzelm@24172
   371
theories simultaneously, just as 'imports' within a theory header
wenzelm@24172
   372
specification, but without merging the results.  Potential
wenzelm@24172
   373
INCOMPATIBILITY: may need to refine theory headers and commands
wenzelm@24172
   374
ROOT.ML which depend on load order.
wenzelm@23888
   375
wenzelm@23888
   376
* Theory loader: optional support for content-based file
wenzelm@23888
   377
identification, instead of the traditional scheme of full physical
wenzelm@23889
   378
path plus date stamp; configured by the ISABELLE_FILE_IDENT setting
wenzelm@23888
   379
(cf. the system manual).  The new scheme allows to work with
wenzelm@23888
   380
non-finished theories in persistent session images, such that source
wenzelm@23888
   381
files may be moved later on without requiring reloads.
wenzelm@23888
   382
wenzelm@24187
   383
* Theory loader: old-style ML proof scripts being *attached* to a thy
wenzelm@24187
   384
file (with the same base name as the theory) are considered a legacy
wenzelm@24800
   385
feature, which will disappear eventually. Even now, the theory loader
wenzelm@24800
   386
no longer maintains dependencies on such files.
wenzelm@24800
   387
wenzelm@24800
   388
* Syntax: the scope for resolving ambiguities via type-inference is
wenzelm@24800
   389
now limited to individual terms, instead of whole simultaneous
wenzelm@24234
   390
specifications as before. This greatly reduces the complexity of the
wenzelm@24234
   391
syntax module and improves flexibility by separating parsing and
wenzelm@24234
   392
type-checking. INCOMPATIBILITY: additional type-constraints (explicit
wenzelm@24234
   393
'fixes' etc.) are required in rare situations.
wenzelm@24234
   394
wenzelm@25034
   395
* Syntax: constants introduced by new-style packages ('definition',
wenzelm@25034
   396
'abbreviation' etc.) are passed through the syntax module in
wenzelm@25034
   397
``authentic mode''. This means that associated mixfix annotations
wenzelm@25034
   398
really stick to such constants, independently of potential name space
wenzelm@25034
   399
ambiguities introduced later on. INCOMPATIBILITY: constants in parse
wenzelm@25034
   400
trees are represented slightly differently, may need to adapt syntax
wenzelm@25034
   401
translations accordingly. Use CONST marker in 'translations' and
wenzelm@25034
   402
@{const_syntax} antiquotation in 'parse_translation' etc.
wenzelm@25034
   403
wenzelm@17981
   404
* Legacy goal package: reduced interface to the bare minimum required
wenzelm@17981
   405
to keep existing proof scripts running.  Most other user-level
wenzelm@17981
   406
functions are now part of the OldGoals structure, which is *not* open
wenzelm@17981
   407
by default (consider isatool expandshort before open OldGoals).
wenzelm@17981
   408
Removed top_sg, prin, printyp, pprint_term/typ altogether, because
wenzelm@17981
   409
these tend to cause confusion about the actual goal (!) context being
wenzelm@17981
   410
used here, which is not necessarily the same as the_context().
wenzelm@17918
   411
wenzelm@23379
   412
* Command 'find_theorems': supports "*" wild-card in "name:"
wenzelm@23379
   413
criterion; "with_dups" option.  Certain ProofGeneral versions might
wenzelm@23379
   414
support a specific search form (see ProofGeneral/CHANGES).
webertj@22965
   415
wenzelm@20370
   416
* The ``prems limit'' option (cf. ProofContext.prems_limit) is now -1
wenzelm@20370
   417
by default, which means that "prems" (and also "fixed variables") are
wenzelm@20370
   418
suppressed from proof state output.  Note that the ProofGeneral
wenzelm@20370
   419
settings mechanism allows to change and save options persistently, but
wenzelm@20370
   420
older versions of Isabelle will fail to start up if a negative prems
wenzelm@20370
   421
limit is imposed.
wenzelm@20370
   422
wenzelm@21308
   423
* Local theory targets may be specified by non-nested blocks of
wenzelm@21308
   424
``context/locale/class ... begin'' followed by ``end''.  The body may
wenzelm@21308
   425
contain definitions, theorems etc., including any derived mechanism
wenzelm@21308
   426
that has been implemented on top of these primitives.  This concept
wenzelm@21308
   427
generalizes the existing ``theorem (in ...)'' towards more versatility
wenzelm@21308
   428
and scalability.
wenzelm@21308
   429
wenzelm@21960
   430
* Proof General interface: proper undo of final 'end' command;
wenzelm@21960
   431
discontinued Isabelle/classic mode (ML proof scripts).

*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@17865
   435
wenzelm@21717
   436
* Added antiquotation @{theory name} which prints the given name,
wenzelm@21717
   437
after checking that it refers to a valid ancestor theory in the
wenzelm@21717
   438
current context.
haftmann@21339
   439
wenzelm@17869
   440
* Added antiquotations @{ML_type text} and @{ML_struct text} which
wenzelm@17869
   441
check the given source text as ML type/structure, printing verbatim.
wenzelm@17865
   442
wenzelm@21717
   443
* Added antiquotation @{abbrev "c args"} which prints the abbreviation
wenzelm@21717
   444
"c args == rhs" given in the current context.  (Any number of
wenzelm@21735
   445
arguments may be given on the LHS.)

*** Pure ***
wenzelm@17779
   449
wenzelm@24800
   450
* The 'class' package offers a combination of axclass and locale to
wenzelm@25129
   451
achieve Haskell-like type classes in Isabelle.  Definitions and
wenzelm@25129
   452
theorems within a class context produce both relative results (with
wenzelm@25129
   453
implicit parameters according to the locale context), and polymorphic
wenzelm@25129
   454
constants with qualified polymorphism (according to the class
wenzelm@25129
   455
context).  Within the body context of a 'class' target, a separate
wenzelm@25129
   456
syntax layer ("user space type system") takes care of converting
wenzelm@25129
   457
between global polymorphic consts and internal locale representation.

    code_const <and-list of constants (term syntax)>
haftmann@20453

   491
    code_type <and-list of type constructors>
haftmann@20453
   492
      {(target) <and-list of type target syntax>}+

haftmann@20453
   501
haftmann@25199
   502
code_instance and code_class only are effective to target Haskell.

For example usage see src/HOL/ex/Codegenerator.thy and

haftmann@20188
   508
wenzelm@25129
   509
* Code generator: consts in 'consts_code' Isar commands are now
wenzelm@25129
   510
referred to by usual term syntax (including optional type
wenzelm@25129
   511
annotations).
wenzelm@25129
   512
wenzelm@19254
   513
* Command 'no_translations' removes translation rules from theory
wenzelm@19254
   514
syntax.
wenzelm@19254
   515
wenzelm@19625
   516
* Overloaded definitions are now actually checked for acyclic
wenzelm@19714
   517
dependencies.  The overloading scheme is slightly more general than
wenzelm@19714
   518
that of Haskell98, although Isabelle does not demand an exact
wenzelm@19714
   519
correspondence to type class and instance declarations.
wenzelm@19714
   520
INCOMPATIBILITY, use ``defs (unchecked overloaded)'' to admit more
wenzelm@19714
   521
exotic versions of overloading -- at the discretion of the user!
wenzelm@19711
   522
wenzelm@19711
   523
Polymorphic constants are represented via type arguments, i.e. the
wenzelm@19711
   524
instantiation that matches an instance against the most general
wenzelm@19711
   525
declaration given in the signature.  For example, with the declaration
wenzelm@19711
   526
c :: 'a => 'a => 'a, an instance c :: nat => nat => nat is represented
wenzelm@19711
   527
as c(nat).  Overloading is essentially simultaneous structural
wenzelm@19711
   528
recursion over such type arguments.  Incomplete specification patterns
wenzelm@19714
   529
impose global constraints on all occurrences, e.g. c('a * 'a) on the
wenzelm@19715
   530
LHS means that more general c('a * 'b) will be disallowed on any RHS.
wenzelm@19714
   531
Command 'print_theory' outputs the normalized system of recursive
wenzelm@19714
   532
equations, see section "definitions".
wenzelm@19625
   533
wenzelm@24086
   534
* Configuration options are maintained within the theory or proof
wenzelm@24086
   535
context (with name and type bool/int/string), providing a very simple
wenzelm@24086
   536
interface to a poor-man's version of general context data.  Tools may
wenzelm@24110
   537
declare options in ML (e.g. using Attrib.config_int) and then refer to
wenzelm@24110
   538
these values using Config.get etc.  Users may change options via an
wenzelm@24110
   539
associated attribute of the same name.  This form of context
wenzelm@24110
   540
declaration works particularly well with commands 'declare' or
wenzelm@24110
   541
'using', for example ``declare [[foo = 42]]''.  Thus it has become
wenzelm@24110
   542
very easy to avoid global references, which would not observe Isar
wenzelm@24110
   543
toplevel undo/redo and fail to work with multithreading.

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

wenzelm@24086
   558
* Named collections of theorems may be easily installed as context
wenzelm@24800
   559
data using the functor NamedThmsFun (see also
wenzelm@24086
   560
src/Pure/Tools/named_thms.ML).  The user may add or delete facts via
wenzelm@24110
   561
attributes; there is also a toplevel print command.  This facility is
wenzelm@24110
   562
just a common case of general context data, which is the preferred way
wenzelm@24110
   563
for anything more complex than just a list of facts in canonical
wenzelm@24110
   564
order.
wenzelm@24086
   565
wenzelm@24032
   566
* Isar: command 'declaration' augments a local theory by generic
wenzelm@24032
   567
declaration functions written in ML.  This enables arbitrary content
wenzelm@24032
   568
being added to the context, depending on a morphism that tells the
wenzelm@24032
   569
difference of the original declaration context wrt. the application
wenzelm@24032
   570
context encountered later on.
wenzelm@24032
   571
wenzelm@24032
   572
* Isar: proper interfaces for simplification procedures.  Command
wenzelm@24032
   573
'simproc_setup' declares named simprocs (with match patterns, and body
wenzelm@24032
   574
text in ML).  Attribute "simproc" adds/deletes simprocs in the current
wenzelm@24032
   575
context.  ML antiquotation @{simproc name} retrieves named simprocs.
wenzelm@24032
   576
wenzelm@24032
   577
* Isar: an extra pair of brackets around attribute declarations
wenzelm@24032
   578
abbreviates a theorem reference involving an internal dummy fact,
wenzelm@24032
   579
which will be ignored later --- only the effect of the attribute on
wenzelm@24032
   580
the background context will persist.  This form of in-place
wenzelm@24032
   581
declarations is particularly useful with commands like 'declare' and
wenzelm@24032
   582
'using', for example ``have A using [[simproc a]] by simp''.
wenzelm@24032
   583
wenzelm@23369
   584
* Isar: method "assumption" (and implicit closing of subproofs) now
wenzelm@23369
   585
takes simple non-atomic goal assumptions into account: after applying
wenzelm@23369
   586
an assumption as a rule the resulting subgoals are solved by atomic
wenzelm@23369
   587
assumption steps.  This is particularly useful to finish 'obtain'
wenzelm@23369
   588
goals, such as "!!x. (!!x. P x ==> thesis) ==> P x ==> thesis",
wenzelm@23369
   589
without referring to the original premise "!!x. P x ==> thesis" in the
wenzelm@23369
   590
Isar proof context.  POTENTIAL INCOMPATIBILITY: method "assumption" is
wenzelm@23369
   591
more permissive.
wenzelm@23369
   592
wenzelm@23369
   593
* Isar: implicit use of prems from the Isar proof context is
wenzelm@23369
   594
considered a legacy feature.  Common applications like ``have A .''
wenzelm@23369
   595
may be replaced by ``have A by fact'' or ``note `A`''.  In general,
wenzelm@23369
   596
referencing facts explicitly here improves readability and
wenzelm@23369
   597
maintainability of proof texts.
wenzelm@23369
   598
wenzelm@17865
   599
* Isar: improper proof element 'guess' is like 'obtain', but derives
wenzelm@17865
   600
the obtained context from the course of reasoning!  For example:
wenzelm@17865
   601
wenzelm@17865
   602
  assume "EX x y. A x & B y"   -- "any previous fact"
wenzelm@17865
   603
  then guess x and y by clarify
wenzelm@17865
   604
wenzelm@17865
   605
This technique is potentially adventurous, depending on the facts and
wenzelm@17865
   606
proof tools being involved here.
wenzelm@17865
   607
wenzelm@18020
   608
* Isar: known facts from the proof context may be specified as literal
wenzelm@18020
   609
propositions, using ASCII back-quote syntax.  This works wherever
wenzelm@18020
   610
named facts used to be allowed so far, in proof commands, proof
wenzelm@18020
   611
methods, attributes etc.  Literal facts are retrieved from the context
wenzelm@18020
   612
according to unification of type and term parameters.  For example,
wenzelm@18020
   613
provided that "A" and "A ==> B" and "!!x. P x ==> Q x" are known
wenzelm@18020
   614
theorems in the current context, then these are valid literal facts:
wenzelm@18020
   615
`A` and `A ==> B` and `!!x. P x ==> Q x" as well as `P a ==> Q a` etc.
wenzelm@18020
   616
wenzelm@18020
   617
There is also a proof method "fact" which does the same composition
wenzelm@18044
   618
for explicit goal states, e.g. the following proof texts coincide with
wenzelm@18044
   619
certain special cases of literal facts:
wenzelm@18020
   620
wenzelm@18020
   621
  have "A" by fact                 ==  note `A`
wenzelm@18020
   622
  have "A ==> B" by fact           ==  note `A ==> B`
wenzelm@18020
   623
  have "!!x. P x ==> Q x" by fact  ==  note `!!x. P x ==> Q x`
wenzelm@18020
   624
  have "P a ==> Q a" by fact       ==  note `P a ==> Q a`
wenzelm@18020
   625
wenzelm@20118
   626
* Isar: ":" (colon) is no longer a symbolic identifier character in
wenzelm@20118
   627
outer syntax.  Thus symbolic identifiers may be used without
wenzelm@20118
   628
additional white space in declarations like this: ``assume *: A''.
wenzelm@20118
   629
wenzelm@20013
   630
* Isar: 'print_facts' prints all local facts of the current context,
wenzelm@20013
   631
both named and unnamed ones.
wenzelm@20013
   632
wenzelm@18308
   633
* Isar: 'def' now admits simultaneous definitions, e.g.:
wenzelm@18308
   634
wenzelm@18308
   635
  def x == "t" and y == "u"
wenzelm@18308
   636
wenzelm@18540
   637
* Isar: added command 'unfolding', which is structurally similar to
wenzelm@18540
   638
'using', but affects both the goal state and facts by unfolding given
wenzelm@18815
   639
rewrite rules.  Thus many occurrences of the 'unfold' method or
wenzelm@18540
   640
'unfolded' attribute may be replaced by first-class proof text.
wenzelm@18540
   641
wenzelm@18815
   642
* Isar: methods 'unfold' / 'fold', attributes 'unfolded' / 'folded',
wenzelm@18815
   643
and command 'unfolding' now all support object-level equalities
wenzelm@18815
   644
(potentially conditional).  The underlying notion of rewrite rule is
wenzelm@18815
   645
analogous to the 'rule_format' attribute, but *not* that of the
wenzelm@18815
   646
Simplifier (which is usually more generous).
wenzelm@18815
   647
kleing@24238
   648
* Isar: the new attribute [rotated n] (default n = 1) rotates the
kleing@24238
   649
premises of a theorem by n. Useful in conjunction with drule.
kleing@24238
   650
wenzelm@19220
   651
* Isar: the goal restriction operator [N] (default N = 1) evaluates a
wenzelm@19220
   652
method expression within a sandbox consisting of the first N
wenzelm@19240
   653
sub-goals, which need to exist.  For example, ``simp_all [3]''
wenzelm@19240
   654
simplifies the first three sub-goals, while (rule foo, simp_all)[]
wenzelm@19240
   655
simplifies all new goals that emerge from applying rule foo to the
wenzelm@19240
   656
originally first one.
wenzelm@19220
   657
wenzelm@19814
   658
* Isar: schematic goals are no longer restricted to higher-order
wenzelm@19814
   659
patterns; e.g. ``lemma "?P(?x)" by (rule TrueI)'' now works as
wenzelm@19814
   660
expected.
wenzelm@19814
   661
wenzelm@18901
   662
* Isar: the conclusion of a long theorem statement is now either
wenzelm@18901
   663
'shows' (a simultaneous conjunction, as before), or 'obtains'
wenzelm@18901
   664
(essentially a disjunction of cases with local parameters and
wenzelm@18901
   665
assumptions).  The latter allows to express general elimination rules
wenzelm@18910
   666
adequately; in this notation common elimination rules look like this:
wenzelm@18901
   667
wenzelm@18901
   668
  lemma exE:    -- "EX x. P x ==> (!!x. P x ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
   669
    assumes "EX x. P x"
wenzelm@18901
   670
    obtains x where "P x"
wenzelm@18901
   671
wenzelm@18901
   672
  lemma conjE:  -- "A & B ==> (A ==> B ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
   673
    assumes "A & B"
wenzelm@18901
   674
    obtains A and B
wenzelm@18901
   675
wenzelm@18901
   676
  lemma disjE:  -- "A | B ==> (A ==> thesis) ==> (B ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
   677
    assumes "A | B"
wenzelm@18901
   678
    obtains
wenzelm@18901
   679
      A
wenzelm@18901
   680
    | B
wenzelm@18901
   681
wenzelm@18910
   682
The subsequent classical rules even refer to the formal "thesis"
wenzelm@18901
   683
explicitly:
wenzelm@18901
   684
wenzelm@18901
   685
  lemma classical:     -- "(~ thesis ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
   686
    obtains "~ thesis"
wenzelm@18901
   687
wenzelm@18910
   688
  lemma Peirce's_Law:  -- "((thesis ==> something) ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18910
   689
    obtains "thesis ==> something"
wenzelm@18901
   690
wenzelm@18901
   691
The actual proof of an 'obtains' statement is analogous to that of the
wenzelm@18910
   692
Isar proof element 'obtain', only that there may be several cases.
wenzelm@18910
   693
Optional case names may be specified in parentheses; these will be
wenzelm@18910
   694
available both in the present proof and as annotations in the
wenzelm@18910
   695
resulting rule, for later use with the 'cases' method (cf. attribute
wenzelm@18910
   696
case_names).
wenzelm@18901
   697
wenzelm@21447
   698
* Isar: the assumptions of a long theorem statement are available as
wenzelm@21447
   699
"assms" fact in the proof context.  This is more appropriate than the
wenzelm@21447
   700
(historical) "prems", which refers to all assumptions of the current
wenzelm@21447
   701
context, including those from the target locale, proof body etc.
wenzelm@21447
   702
wenzelm@19263
   703
* Isar: 'print_statement' prints theorems from the current theory or
wenzelm@19263
   704
proof context in long statement form, according to the syntax of a
wenzelm@19263
   705
top-level lemma.
wenzelm@19263
   706
wenzelm@18901
   707
* Isar: 'obtain' takes an optional case name for the local context
wenzelm@18901
   708
introduction rule (default "that").
wenzelm@18901
   709
wenzelm@19587
   710
* Isar: removed obsolete 'concl is' patterns.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use
wenzelm@19587
   711
explicit (is "_ ==> ?foo") in the rare cases where this still happens
wenzelm@19587
   712
to occur.
wenzelm@19587
   713
wenzelm@19682
   714
* Pure: syntax "CONST name" produces a fully internalized constant
wenzelm@19682
   715
according to the current context.  This is particularly useful for
wenzelm@19682
   716
syntax translations that should refer to internal constant
wenzelm@19682
   717
representations independently of name spaces.
wenzelm@19682
   718
wenzelm@21537
   719
* Pure: syntax constant for foo (binder "FOO ") is called "foo_binder"
wenzelm@21537
   720
instead of "FOO ". This allows multiple binder declarations to coexist
wenzelm@21537
   721
in the same context.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@21537
   722
wenzelm@21209
   723
* Isar/locales: 'notation' provides a robust interface to the 'syntax'
wenzelm@21209
   724
primitive that also works in a locale context (both for constants and
wenzelm@24950
   725
fixed variables). Type declaration and internal syntactic representation
wenzelm@24950
   726
of given constants retrieved from the context. Likewise, the
wenzelm@24950
   727
'no_notation' command allows to remove given syntax annotations from the
wenzelm@24950
   728
current context.
wenzelm@19682
   729
wenzelm@19665
   730
* Isar/locales: new derived specification elements 'axiomatization',
wenzelm@19665
   731
'definition', 'abbreviation', which support type-inference, admit
wenzelm@19083
   732
object-level specifications (equality, equivalence).  See also the
wenzelm@19083
   733
isar-ref manual.  Examples:
wenzelm@19081
   734
wenzelm@19665
   735
  axiomatization
wenzelm@21595
   736
    eq  (infix "===" 50) where
wenzelm@21595
   737
    eq_refl: "x === x" and eq_subst: "x === y ==> P x ==> P y"
wenzelm@21595
   738
wenzelm@21595
   739
  definition "f x y = x + y + 1"
wenzelm@21595
   740
  definition g where "g x = f x x"
wenzelm@19081
   741
wenzelm@19363
   742
  abbreviation
wenzelm@21595
   743
    neq  (infix "=!=" 50) where
wenzelm@19363
   744
    "x =!= y == ~ (x === y)"
wenzelm@19081
   745
wenzelm@19083
   746
These specifications may be also used in a locale context.  Then the
wenzelm@19083
   747
constants being introduced depend on certain fixed parameters, and the
wenzelm@19083
   748
constant name is qualified by the locale base name.  An internal
wenzelm@19083
   749
abbreviation takes care for convenient input and output, making the
wenzelm@19088
   750
parameters implicit and using the original short name.  See also
wenzelm@25177
   751
src/HOL/ex/Abstract_NAT.thy for an example of deriving polymorphic
wenzelm@19083
   752
entities from a monomorphic theory.
wenzelm@19083
   753
wenzelm@19083
   754
Presently, abbreviations are only available 'in' a target locale, but
wenzelm@19363
   755
not inherited by general import expressions.  Also note that
wenzelm@19363
   756
'abbreviation' may be used as a type-safe replacement for 'syntax' +
wenzelm@24735
   757
'translations' in common applications.  The "no_abbrevs" print mode
wenzelm@24735
   758
prevents folding of abbreviations in term output.
wenzelm@19084
   759
wenzelm@19682
   760
Concrete syntax is attached to specified constants in internal form,
wenzelm@19682
   761
independently of name spaces.  The parse tree representation is
wenzelm@21209
   762
slightly different -- use 'notation' instead of raw 'syntax', and
wenzelm@19682
   763
'translations' with explicit "CONST" markup to accommodate this.
wenzelm@19665
   764
wenzelm@24800
   765
* Pure/Isar: unified syntax for new-style specification mechanisms
wenzelm@24800
   766
(e.g.  'definition', 'abbreviation', or 'inductive' in HOL) admits
wenzelm@24800
   767
full type inference and dummy patterns ("_").  For example:
wenzelm@24735
   768
wenzelm@24735
   769
  definition "K x _ = x"
wenzelm@24735
   770
wenzelm@24738
   771
  inductive conj for A B
wenzelm@24738
   772
  where "A ==> B ==> conj A B"
wenzelm@24738
   773
wenzelm@21735
   774
* Pure: command 'print_abbrevs' prints all constant abbreviations of
wenzelm@21735
   775
the current context.  Print mode "no_abbrevs" prevents inversion of
wenzelm@21735
   776
abbreviations on output.
wenzelm@21735
   777
wenzelm@24800
   778
* Isar/locales: improved parameter handling: use of locales "var" and
wenzelm@24800
   779
"struct" no longer necessary; - parameter renamings are no longer
wenzelm@24800
   780
required to be injective.  For example, this allows to define
wenzelm@24800
   781
endomorphisms as locale endom = homom mult mult h.
ballarin@19783
   782
ballarin@19931
   783
* Isar/locales: changed the way locales with predicates are defined.
ballarin@19931
   784
Instead of accumulating the specification, the imported expression is
wenzelm@22126
   785
now an interpretation.  INCOMPATIBILITY: different normal form of
wenzelm@22126
   786
locale expressions.  In particular, in interpretations of locales with
wenzelm@22126
   787
predicates, goals repesenting already interpreted fragments are not
wenzelm@22126
   788
removed automatically.  Use methods `intro_locales' and
wenzelm@22126
   789
`unfold_locales'; see below.
wenzelm@22126
   790
wenzelm@22126
   791
* Isar/locales: new methods `intro_locales' and `unfold_locales'
wenzelm@22126
   792
provide backward reasoning on locales predicates.  The methods are
wenzelm@22126
   793
aware of interpretations and discharge corresponding goals.
wenzelm@22126
   794
`intro_locales' is less aggressive then `unfold_locales' and does not
wenzelm@22126
   795
unfold predicates to assumptions.
ballarin@19931
   796
ballarin@19931
   797
* Isar/locales: the order in which locale fragments are accumulated
wenzelm@22126
   798
has changed.  This enables to override declarations from fragments due
wenzelm@22126
   799
to interpretations -- for example, unwanted simp rules.
ballarin@19931
   800
ballarin@23920
   801
* Isar/locales: interpretation in theories and proof contexts has been
ballarin@23920
   802
extended.  One may now specify (and prove) equations, which are
ballarin@23920
   803
unfolded in interpreted theorems.  This is useful for replacing
ballarin@23920
   804
defined concepts (constants depending on locale parameters) by
ballarin@23920
   805
concepts already existing in the target context.  Example:
ballarin@23920
   806
ballarin@23920
   807
  interpretation partial_order ["op <= :: [int, int] => bool"]
ballarin@23920
   808
    where "partial_order.less (op <=) (x::int) y = (x < y)"
ballarin@23920
   809
wenzelm@24800
   810
Typically, the constant `partial_order.less' is created by a
wenzelm@24800
   811
definition specification element in the context of locale
wenzelm@24800
   812
partial_order.
wenzelm@24800

wenzelm@24859
   814
* Method "induct": improved internal context management to support
wenzelm@24800
   815
local fixes and defines on-the-fly. Thus explicit meta-level
wenzelm@24800
   816
connectives !!  and ==> are rarely required anymore in inductive goals
wenzelm@24800
   817
(using object-logic connectives for this purpose has been long
wenzelm@24800
   818
obsolete anyway). Common proof patterns are explained in
wenzelm@25177
   819
src/HOL/Induct/Common_Patterns.thy, see also
wenzelm@25177
   820
src/HOL/Isar_examples/Puzzle.thy and src/HOL/Lambda for realistic
wenzelm@25177
   821
examples.
wenzelm@24606
   822
wenzelm@24859
   823
* Method "induct": improved handling of simultaneous goals. Instead of
wenzelm@24606
   824
introducing object-level conjunction, the statement is now split into
wenzelm@24606
   825
several conclusions, while the corresponding symbolic cases are nested
wenzelm@24606
   826
accordingly. INCOMPATIBILITY, proofs need to be structured explicitly,
wenzelm@25177
   827
see src/HOL/Induct/Common_Patterns.thy, for example.
wenzelm@24606
   828
wenzelm@24859
   829
* Method "induct": mutual induction rules are now specified as a list
wenzelm@24800
   830
of rule sharing the same induction cases. HOL packages usually provide
wenzelm@24606
   831
foo_bar.inducts for mutually defined items foo and bar (e.g. inductive
wenzelm@24859
   832
predicates/sets or datatypes). INCOMPATIBILITY, users need to specify
wenzelm@24859
   833
mutual induction rules differently, i.e. like this:
wenzelm@18506
   834
wenzelm@18506
   835
  (induct rule: foo_bar.inducts)
wenzelm@18506
   836
  (induct set: foo bar)
wenzelm@24859
   837
  (induct pred: foo bar)
wenzelm@18506
   838
  (induct type: foo bar)
wenzelm@18506
   839
wenzelm@18506
   840
The ML function ProjectRule.projections turns old-style rules into the
wenzelm@18506
   841
new format.
wenzelm@18506
   842
wenzelm@24859
   843
* Method "coinduct": dual of induction, see
wenzelm@18399
   844
src/HOL/Library/Coinductive_List.thy for various examples.
wenzelm@18399
   845
wenzelm@24859
   846
* Method "cases", "induct", "coinduct": the ``(open)'' option is
wenzelm@24859
   847
considered a legacy feature.
wenzelm@24859
   848
wenzelm@20919
   849
* Attribute "symmetric" produces result with standardized schematic
wenzelm@20919
   850
variables (index 0).  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@20919
   851
wenzelm@22126
   852
* Simplifier: by default the simplifier trace only shows top level
wenzelm@22126
   853
rewrites now. That is, trace_simp_depth_limit is set to 1 by
wenzelm@22126
   854
default. Thus there is less danger of being flooded by the trace. The
wenzelm@22126
   855
trace indicates where parts have been suppressed.
nipkow@18674
   856
  
wenzelm@18536
   857
* Provers/classical: removed obsolete classical version of elim_format
wenzelm@18536
   858
attribute; classical elim/dest rules are now treated uniformly when
wenzelm@18536
   859
manipulating the claset.
wenzelm@18536
   860
wenzelm@18694
   861
* Provers/classical: stricter checks to ensure that supplied intro,
wenzelm@18694
   862
dest and elim rules are well-formed; dest and elim rules must have at
wenzelm@18694
   863
least one premise.
wenzelm@18694
   864
wenzelm@18694
   865
* Provers/classical: attributes dest/elim/intro take an optional
wenzelm@18695
   866
weight argument for the rule (just as the Pure versions).  Weights are
wenzelm@18696
   867
ignored by automated tools, but determine the search order of single
wenzelm@18694
   868
rule steps.
paulson@18557
   869
wenzelm@18536
   870
* Syntax: input syntax now supports dummy variable binding "%_. b",
wenzelm@18536
   871
where the body does not mention the bound variable.  Note that dummy
wenzelm@18536
   872
patterns implicitly depend on their context of bounds, which makes
wenzelm@18536
   873
"{_. _}" match any set comprehension as expected.  Potential
wenzelm@18536
   874
INCOMPATIBILITY -- parse translations need to cope with syntactic
wenzelm@18536
   875
constant "_idtdummy" in the binding position.
wenzelm@18536
   876
wenzelm@18536
   877
* Syntax: removed obsolete syntactic constant "_K" and its associated
wenzelm@18536
   878
parse translation.  INCOMPATIBILITY -- use dummy abstraction instead,
wenzelm@18536
   879
for example "A -> B" => "Pi A (%_. B)".
wenzelm@17779
   880
wenzelm@20582
   881
* Pure: 'class_deps' command visualizes the subclass relation, using
wenzelm@20582
   882
the graph browser tool.
wenzelm@20582
   883
wenzelm@24800
   884
* Pure: 'print_theory' now suppresses certain internal declarations by
wenzelm@24800
   885
default; use '!' option for full details.

* Method "metis" proves goals by applying the Metis general-purpose
wenzelm@25129
   891
resolution prover (see also http://gilith.com/software/metis/).
wenzelm@25129
   892
Examples are in the directory MetisExamples.  WARNING: the
wenzelm@25129

* Command 'sledgehammer' invokes external automatic theorem provers as
wenzelm@25129
   897
background processes.  It generates calls to the "metis" method if
wenzelm@25129
   898
successful. These can be pasted into the proof.  Users do not have to

haftmann@25184
   908
* New constant "undefined" with axiom "undefined x = undefined".
haftmann@25184
   909
haftmann@25184
   910
* Added class "HOL.eq", allowing for code generation with polymorphic
haftmann@25184

haftmann@25184
   912
haftmann@25184
   913
* Some renaming of class constants due to canonical name prefixing in
haftmann@25184

   937
INCOMPATIBILITY.  Adaptions may be required in the following cases:
haftmann@25184
   938
haftmann@25184
   939
a) User-defined constants using any of the names "plus", "minus",
haftmann@25184
   940
"times", "less" or "less_eq". The standard syntax translations for
haftmann@25184
   941
"+", "-" and "*" may go wrong.  INCOMPATIBILITY: use more specific
haftmann@25184
   942
names.
haftmann@25184
   943
haftmann@25184
   944
b) Variables named "plus", "minus", "times", "less", "less_eq"
haftmann@25184
   945
INCOMPATIBILITY: use more specific names.
haftmann@25184
   946
haftmann@25184
   947
c) Permutative equations (e.g. "a + b = b + a")
haftmann@25184
   948
Since the change of names also changes the order of terms, permutative
haftmann@25184
   949
rewrite rules may get applied in a different order. Experience shows
haftmann@25184
   950
that this is rarely the case (only two adaptions in the whole Isabelle
haftmann@25184
   951
distribution).  INCOMPATIBILITY: rewrite proofs
haftmann@25184
   952
haftmann@25184
   953
d) ML code directly refering to constant names
haftmann@25184
   954
This in general only affects hand-written proof tactics, simprocs and
haftmann@25184
   955
so on.  INCOMPATIBILITY: grep your sourcecode and replace names.
haftmann@25184
   956
Consider using @{const_name} antiquotation.
haftmann@25184
   957
haftmann@25184
   958
* New class "default" with associated constant "default".
haftmann@25184
   959
haftmann@25184
   960
* Function "sgn" is now overloaded and available on int, real, complex
haftmann@25184
   961
(and other numeric types), using class "sgn".  Two possible defs of
haftmann@25184
   962
sgn are given as equational assumptions in the classes sgn_if and
haftmann@25184
   963
sgn_div_norm; ordered_idom now also inherits from sgn_if.
haftmann@25184
   964
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
   965
haftmann@25184
   966
* Locale "partial_order" now unified with class "order" (cf. theory
haftmann@25184
   967
Orderings), added parameter "less".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
   968
haftmann@25184
   969
* Renamings in classes "order" and "linorder": facts "refl", "trans" and
haftmann@25184
   970
"cases" to "order_refl", "order_trans" and "linorder_cases", to avoid
haftmann@25184
   971
clashes with HOL "refl" and "trans".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
   972
haftmann@25184
   973
* Classes "order" and "linorder": potential INCOMPATIBILITY due to
haftmann@25184
   974
changed order of proof goals in instance proofs.
haftmann@25184
   975
haftmann@25184
   976
* The transitivity reasoner for partial and linear orders is set up
haftmann@25184
   977
for classes "order" and "linorder".  Instances of the reasoner are available
haftmann@25184
   978
in all contexts importing or interpreting the corresponding locales.
haftmann@25184
   979
Method "order" invokes the reasoner separately; the reasoner
haftmann@25184
   980
is also integrated with the Simplifier as a solver.  Diagnostic
haftmann@25184
   981
command 'print_orders' shows the available instances of the reasoner
haftmann@25184
   982
in the current context.
haftmann@25184

lemmas max_of_mono and min_of_mono with this predicate.
haftmann@25184
   986
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
   987
haftmann@25184
   988
* Formulation of theorem "dense" changed slightly due to integration
haftmann@25184
   989
with new class dense_linear_order.
haftmann@25184
   990
haftmann@25184
   991
* Uniform lattice theory development in HOL.
haftmann@25184
   992
haftmann@25184
   993
    constants "meet" and "join" now named "inf" and "sup"
haftmann@25184

    constant "Meet" now named "Inf"
haftmann@25184
   995
haftmann@25184
   996
    classes "meet_semilorder" and "join_semilorder" now named
haftmann@25184
   997
      "lower_semilattice" and "upper_semilattice"
haftmann@25184
   998
    class "lorder" now named "lattice"
haftmann@25184
   999
    class "comp_lat" now named "complete_lattice"
haftmann@25184
  1000
haftmann@25184
  1001
    Instantiation of lattice classes allows explicit definitions

type "'a::size ==> bool"
haftmann@25184
  1109
wenzelm@24800
  1110
* Internal reorganisation of `size' of datatypes: size theorems
wenzelm@24800
  1111
"foo.size" are no longer subsumed by "foo.simps" (but are still
wenzelm@24800
  1112
simplification rules by default!); theorems "prod.size" now named
haftmann@25184
  1113
"*.size".
haftmann@25184
  1114
haftmann@25184
  1115
* Class "div" now inherits from class "times" rather than "type".

  1125
machine words, with arithemtic, bit-wise, shifting and rotating
wenzelm@24800
  1126
operations, reflection into int, nat, and bool lists, automation for
wenzelm@24800
  1127
linear arithmetic (by automatic reflection into nat or int), including
wenzelm@24800
  1128
lemmas on overflow and monotonicity.  Instantiated to all appropriate

haftmann@23850
  1136
* Code generator library theories:
haftmann@24993
  1137
  - Code_Integer represents HOL integers by big integer literals in target
haftmann@23850
  1138
    languages.
haftmann@24993
  1139
  - Code_Char represents HOL characters by character literals in target
haftmann@23850
  1140
    languages.
haftmann@24993
  1141
  - Code_Char_chr like Code_Char, but also offers treatment of character
haftmann@24993
  1142
    codes; includes Code_Integer.
wenzelm@24800
  1143
  - Executable_Set allows to generate code for finite sets using lists.
wenzelm@24800
  1144
  - Executable_Rat implements rational numbers as triples (sign, enumerator,
haftmann@23850
  1145
    denominator).
wenzelm@24800
  1146
  - Executable_Real implements a subset of real numbers, namly those
haftmann@23850
  1147
    representable by rational numbers.
wenzelm@24800
  1148
  - Efficient_Nat implements natural numbers by integers, which in general will
haftmann@23850
  1149
    result in higher efficency; pattern matching with 0/Suc is eliminated;
haftmann@24993
  1150
    includes Code_Integer.
haftmann@24993
  1151
  - Code_Index provides an additional datatype index which is mapped to
haftmann@24993
  1152
    target-language built-in integers.
haftmann@26355
  1153
  - Code_Message provides an additional datatype message_string which is isomorphic to
haftmann@24993
  1154
    strings; messages are mapped to target-language strings.

* New package for inductive predicates
berghofe@23783
  1157
berghofe@23783
  1158
  An n-ary predicate p with m parameters z_1, ..., z_m can now be defined via
berghofe@23783
  1159
berghofe@23783
  1160
    inductive
berghofe@23783
  1161
      p :: "U_1 => ... => U_m => T_1 => ... => T_n => bool"

  1165
    | ...
berghofe@23783
  1166
wenzelm@24800
  1167

  1177
      ...
berghofe@23783
  1178
berghofe@23783
  1179
  For backward compatibility, there is a wrapper allowing inductive
berghofe@23783
  1180
  sets to be defined with the new package via
berghofe@23783
  1181
berghofe@23783

  1184
      for z_1 :: U_1 and ... and z_n :: U_m
berghofe@23783

berghofe@23783
  1204
berghofe@23783
  1205
  INCOMPATIBILITIES:
berghofe@23783
  1206
berghofe@23783
  1207
  - Since declaration and definition of inductive sets or predicates
wenzelm@24800
  1208
    is no longer separated, abbreviations involving the newly
wenzelm@24800
  1209
    introduced sets or predicates must be specified together with the
wenzelm@24800
  1210
    introduction rules after the 'where' keyword (see above), rather
wenzelm@24800
  1211
    than before the actual inductive definition.
wenzelm@24800
  1212
wenzelm@24800
  1213
  - The variables in induction and elimination rules are now
wenzelm@24800
  1214
    quantified in the order of their occurrence in the introduction
wenzelm@24800
  1215
    rules, rather than in alphabetical order. Since this may break
wenzelm@24800
  1216
    some proofs, these proofs either have to be repaired, e.g. by
wenzelm@24800
  1217
    reordering the variables a_i_1 ... a_i_{k_i} in Isar 'case'
wenzelm@24800
  1218
    statements of the form
berghofe@23783
  1219
berghofe@23783
  1220
      case (rule_i a_i_1 ... a_i_{k_i})
berghofe@23783
  1221
berghofe@23783
  1222
    or the old order of quantification has to be restored by explicitly adding
berghofe@23783
  1223
    meta-level quantifiers in the introduction rules, i.e.
berghofe@23783
  1224
berghofe@23783
  1225
      | rule_i: "!!a_i_1 ... a_i_{k_i}. ... ==> p z_1 ... z_m t_i_1 ... t_i_n"
berghofe@23783
  1226
berghofe@23783
  1227
  - The format of the elimination rules is now
berghofe@23783
  1228
berghofe@23783
  1229
      p z_1 ... z_m x_1 ... x_n ==>
berghofe@23783
  1230
        (!!a_1_1 ... a_1_{k_1}. x_1 = t_1_1 ==> ... ==> x_n = t_1_n ==> ... ==> P)
berghofe@23783
  1231
        ==> ... ==> P
berghofe@23783
  1232
berghofe@23783
  1233
    for predicates and
berghofe@23783
  1234
berghofe@23783
  1235
      (x_1, ..., x_n) : s z_1 ... z_m ==>
berghofe@23783
  1236
        (!!a_1_1 ... a_1_{k_1}. x_1 = t_1_1 ==> ... ==> x_n = t_1_n ==> ... ==> P)
berghofe@23783
  1237
        ==> ... ==> P
berghofe@23783
  1238
berghofe@23783
  1239
    for sets rather than
berghofe@23783
  1240
berghofe@23783
  1241
      x : s z_1 ... z_m ==>
berghofe@23783
  1242
        (!!a_1_1 ... a_1_{k_1}. x = (t_1_1, ..., t_1_n) ==> ... ==> P)
berghofe@23783
  1243
        ==> ... ==> P
berghofe@23783
  1244
wenzelm@24800
  1245
    This may require terms in goals to be expanded to n-tuples
wenzelm@24800
  1246
    (e.g. using case_tac or simplification with the split_paired_all
wenzelm@24800
  1247
    rule) before the above elimination rule is applicable.
wenzelm@24800
  1248
wenzelm@24800
  1249
  - The elimination or case analysis rules for (mutually) inductive
wenzelm@24800
  1250
    sets or predicates are now called "p_1.cases" ... "p_k.cases". The
wenzelm@24800
  1251
    list of rules "p_1_..._p_k.elims" is no longer available.
berghofe@23783
  1252
krauss@25198
  1253
* New package "function"/"fun" for general recursive functions,
krauss@25198
  1254
supporting mutual and nested recursion, definitions in local contexts,
krauss@25198
  1255
more general pattern matching and partiality. See HOL/ex/Fundefs.thy
krauss@25198
  1256
for small examples, and the separate tutorial on the function
krauss@25198
  1257
package. The old recdef "package" is still available as before, but
krauss@25198
  1258
users are encouraged to use the new package.
krauss@25198
  1259
krauss@25198
  1260
* Method "lexicographic_order" automatically synthesizes termination
krauss@25198
  1261
relations as lexicographic combinations of size measures. 
krauss@25198
  1262
wenzelm@24800
  1263
* Case-expressions allow arbitrary constructor-patterns (including
wenzelm@24800
  1264
"_") and take their order into account, like in functional
wenzelm@24800
  1265
programming.  Internally, this is translated into nested
wenzelm@24800
  1266
case-expressions; missing cases are added and mapped to the predefined
wenzelm@24800
  1267
constant "undefined". In complicated cases printing may no longer show
wenzelm@24800
  1268
the original input but the internal form. Lambda-abstractions allow
wenzelm@24800
  1269
the same form of pattern matching: "% pat1 => e1 | ..." is an
wenzelm@24800
  1270
abbreviation for "%x. case x of pat1 => e1 | ..." where x is a new
wenzelm@24800
  1271
variable.
nipkow@23564
  1272
huffman@23468
  1273
* IntDef: The constant "int :: nat => int" has been removed; now "int"
wenzelm@24800
  1274
is an abbreviation for "of_nat :: nat => int". The simplification
wenzelm@24800
  1275
rules for "of_nat" have been changed to work like "int" did
wenzelm@24800
  1276
previously.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY:
huffman@23468
  1277
  - "of_nat (Suc m)" simplifies to "1 + of_nat m" instead of "of_nat m + 1"
huffman@23468
  1278
  - of_nat_diff and of_nat_mult are no longer default simp rules
huffman@23377
  1279
chaieb@23295
  1280
* Method "algebra" solves polynomial equations over (semi)rings using
wenzelm@24800
  1281
Groebner bases. The (semi)ring structure is defined by locales and the

tool setup depends on that generic context. Installing the method for
wenzelm@24800
  1283
a specific type involves instantiating the locale and possibly adding
wenzelm@24800
  1284
declarations for computation on the coefficients.  The method is
wenzelm@24800
  1285
already instantiated for natural numbers and for the axiomatic class
wenzelm@24800
  1286
of idoms with numerals.  See also the paper by Chaieb and Wenzel at
wenzelm@24800

  1288
architecture of context-aware proof-tools.

* Method "ferrack" implements quantifier elimination over
wenzelm@25033
  1291
special-purpose dense linear orders using locales (analogous to
wenzelm@25033
  1292
"algebra"). The method is already installed for class
wenzelm@25033
  1293
{ordered_field,recpower,number_ring} which subsumes real, hyperreal,

* Former constant "List.op @" now named "List.append".  Use ML
wenzelm@24800
  1297
antiquotations @{const_name List.append} or @{term " ... @ ... "} to
wenzelm@24800

* primrec: missing cases mapped to "undefined" instead of "arbitrary".
haftmann@22845
  1301
wenzelm@24800
  1302
* New function listsum :: 'a list => 'a for arbitrary monoids.
wenzelm@24800
  1303
Special syntax: "SUM x <- xs. f x" (and latex variants)
wenzelm@24800
  1304
wenzelm@24800
  1305
* New syntax for Haskell-like list comprehension (input only), eg.
wenzelm@25177
  1306
[(x,y). x <- xs, y <- ys, x ~= y], see also src/HOL/List.thy.
wenzelm@24800
  1307
wenzelm@24800
  1308
* The special syntax for function "filter" has changed from [x :
wenzelm@24800
  1309
xs. P] to [x <- xs. P] to avoid an ambiguity caused by list
wenzelm@24800
  1310
comprehension syntax, and for uniformity.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  1311
wenzelm@24800
  1312
* [a..b] is now defined for arbitrary linear orders.  It used to be
wenzelm@24800
  1313
defined on nat only, as an abbreviation for [a..<Suc b]
wenzelm@24800
  1314
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800

* New functions "sorted" and "sort" in src/HOL/List.thy.
wenzelm@24800
  1319
wenzelm@24800
  1320
* New lemma collection field_simps (an extension of ring_simps) for
wenzelm@24800
  1321
manipulating (in)equations involving division. Multiplies with all
wenzelm@24800
  1322
denominators that can be proved to be non-zero (in equations) or
wenzelm@24800
  1323
positive/negative (in inequations).

  1325
* Lemma collections ring_eq_simps, group_eq_simps and ring_distrib
wenzelm@24800
  1326
have been improved and renamed to ring_simps, group_simps and
wenzelm@24800
  1327
ring_distribs.  Removed lemmas field_xyz in theory Ring_and_Field
wenzelm@24800

  1338
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@22218
  1339
wenzelm@22126
  1340
* HOL/records: generalised field-update to take a function on the
wenzelm@22126
  1341
field rather than the new value: r(|A := x|) is translated to A_update
wenzelm@22126
  1342
(K x) r The K-combinator that is internally used is called K_record.
schirmer@21226
  1343
INCOMPATIBILITY: Usage of the plain update functions has to be
schirmer@21226

  1346
* Class "semiring_0" now contains annihilation axioms x * 0 = 0 and 0
wenzelm@24800
  1347
* x = 0, which are required for a semiring.  Richer structures do not
wenzelm@24800
  1348
inherit from semiring_0 anymore, because this property is a theorem
wenzelm@24800
  1349
there, not an axiom.  INCOMPATIBILITY: In instances of semiring_0,
wenzelm@24800
  1350
there is more to prove, but this is mostly trivial.
wenzelm@24800
  1351
wenzelm@24800
  1352
* Class "recpower" is generalized to arbitrary monoids, not just
wenzelm@24800
  1353
commutative semirings.  INCOMPATIBILITY: may need to incorporate
haftmann@25163
  1354
commutativity or semiring properties additionally.
haftmann@21215
  1355
haftmann@21099
  1356
* Constant "List.list_all2" in List.thy now uses authentic syntax.
wenzelm@24800
  1357
INCOMPATIBILITY: translations containing list_all2 may go wrong,
wenzelm@24800
  1358
better use 'abbreviation'.
wenzelm@24800
  1359
wenzelm@24800
  1360
* Renamed constant "List.op mem" to "List.member".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  1361
wenzelm@22126
  1362
* Numeral syntax: type 'bin' which was a mere type copy of 'int' has
wenzelm@24800
  1363
been abandoned in favour of plain 'int'.  INCOMPATIBILITY --
wenzelm@22126
  1364
significant changes for setting up numeral syntax for types:
wenzelm@24800
  1365
  - New constants Numeral.pred and Numeral.succ instead
haftmann@20485
  1366
      of former Numeral.bin_pred and Numeral.bin_succ.
haftmann@20485
  1367
  - Use integer operations instead of bin_add, bin_mult and so on.
haftmann@20485
  1368
  - Numeral simplification theorems named Numeral.numeral_simps instead of Bin_simps.
haftmann@20485
  1369
  - ML structure Bin_Simprocs now named Int_Numeral_Base_Simprocs.
haftmann@20485
  1370
wenzelm@25177
  1371
See src/HOL/Integ/IntArith.thy for an example setup.
wenzelm@25177
  1372
wenzelm@25177
  1373
* Command 'normal_form' computes the normal form of a term that may
wenzelm@25177
  1374
contain free variables.  For example ``normal_form "rev [a, b, c]"''
wenzelm@25177
  1375
produces ``[b, c, a]'' (without proof).  This command is suitable for
wenzelm@25177
  1376
heavy-duty computations because the functions are compiled to ML
wenzelm@25177
  1377
first.  Correspondingly, a method "normalization" is provided.  See
wenzelm@25177
  1378
further src/HOL/ex/NormalForm.thy and src/Tools/nbe.ML.
nipkow@19895
  1379
wenzelm@17996
  1380
* Alternative iff syntax "A <-> B" for equality on bool (with priority
wenzelm@17996
  1381
25 like -->); output depends on the "iff" print_mode, the default is
wenzelm@17996
  1382
"A = B" (with priority 50).
wenzelm@17996
  1383
wenzelm@21265
  1384
* Relations less (<) and less_eq (<=) are also available on type bool.
wenzelm@21265
  1385
Modified syntax to disallow nesting without explicit parentheses,
wenzelm@24800
  1386
e.g. "(x < y) < z" or "x < (y < z)", but NOT "x < y < z".  Potential
wenzelm@24800
  1387
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@21265
  1388
nipkow@18674
  1389
* "LEAST x:A. P" expands to "LEAST x. x:A & P" (input only).
nipkow@18674
  1390
krauss@20716
  1391
* Relation composition operator "op O" now has precedence 75 and binds
krauss@20716
  1392
stronger than union and intersection. INCOMPATIBILITY.
krauss@20716
  1393
wenzelm@22126
  1394
* The old set interval syntax "{m..n(}" (and relatives) has been
wenzelm@22126
  1395
removed.  Use "{m..<n}" (and relatives) instead.
nipkow@19377
  1396
wenzelm@17865
  1397
* In the context of the assumption "~(s = t)" the Simplifier rewrites
wenzelm@24800
  1398
"t = s" to False (by simproc "neq").  INCOMPATIBILITY, consider using
wenzelm@24800
  1399
``declare [[simproc del: neq]]''.
wenzelm@24800
  1400
wenzelm@24800
  1401
* Simplifier: "m dvd n" where m and n are numbers is evaluated to
wenzelm@24800
  1402
True/False.
wenzelm@24800
  1403
wenzelm@24800
  1404
* Theorem Cons_eq_map_conv no longer declared as "simp".
nipkow@19211
  1405
ballarin@19279
  1406
* Theorem setsum_mult renamed to setsum_right_distrib.
ballarin@19279
  1407
nipkow@19211
  1408
* Prefer ex1I over ex_ex1I in single-step reasoning, e.g. by the
wenzelm@22126
  1409
``rule'' method.
wenzelm@22126
  1410
wenzelm@24800
  1411
* Reimplemented methods "sat" and "satx", with several improvements:
wenzelm@24800
  1412
goals no longer need to be stated as "<prems> ==> False", equivalences
wenzelm@24800
  1413
(i.e. "=" on type bool) are handled, variable names of the form
wenzelm@24800
  1414
"lit_<n>" are no longer reserved, significant speedup.
wenzelm@24800
  1415
wenzelm@24800
  1416
* Methods "sat" and "satx" can now replay MiniSat proof traces.
wenzelm@22126
  1417
zChaff is still supported as well.
wenzelm@22126
  1418
wenzelm@22126
  1419
* 'inductive' and 'datatype': provide projections of mutual rules,
wenzelm@22126
  1420
bundled as foo_bar.inducts;
wenzelm@22126
  1421
wenzelm@22126
  1422
* Library: moved theories Parity, GCD, Binomial, Infinite_Set to
wenzelm@22126
  1423
Library.
wenzelm@21256
  1424
wenzelm@21256
  1425
* Library: moved theory Accessible_Part to main HOL.
wenzelm@19572
  1426
wenzelm@18446
  1427
* Library: added theory Coinductive_List of potentially infinite lists
wenzelm@18446
  1428
as greatest fixed-point.
wenzelm@18399
  1429
wenzelm@19254
  1430
* Library: added theory AssocList which implements (finite) maps as
schirmer@19252
  1431
association lists.
webertj@17809
  1432
wenzelm@24800
  1433
* Method "evaluation" solves goals (i.e. a boolean expression)
wenzelm@24800
  1434
efficiently by compiling it to ML.  The goal is "proved" (via an
wenzelm@24800
  1435
oracle) if it evaluates to True.
wenzelm@20807
  1436
wenzelm@20807
  1437
* Linear arithmetic now splits certain operators (e.g. min, max, abs)
wenzelm@24800
  1438
also when invoked by the simplifier.  This results in the Simplifier
wenzelm@24800
  1439
being more powerful on arithmetic goals.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  1440
Configuration option fast_arith_split_limit=0 recovers the old
wenzelm@24800
  1441
behavior.
webertj@20217
  1442
wenzelm@22126
  1443
* Support for hex (0x20) and binary (0b1001) numerals.
wenzelm@19254
  1444
wenzelm@20807
  1445
* New method: reify eqs (t), where eqs are equations for an
wenzelm@20807
  1446
interpretation I :: 'a list => 'b => 'c and t::'c is an optional
wenzelm@20807
  1447
parameter, computes a term s::'b and a list xs::'a list and proves the
wenzelm@20807
  1448
theorem I xs s = t. This is also known as reification or quoting. The
wenzelm@20807
  1449
resulting theorem is applied to the subgoal to substitute t with I xs
wenzelm@20807
  1450
s.  If t is omitted, the subgoal itself is reified.
wenzelm@20807
  1451
wenzelm@20807
  1452
* New method: reflection corr_thm eqs (t). The parameters eqs and (t)
wenzelm@20807
  1453
are as explained above. corr_thm is a theorem for I vs (f t) = I vs t,
wenzelm@20807
  1454
where f is supposed to be a computable function (in the sense of code
wenzelm@20807
  1455
generattion). The method uses reify to compute s and xs as above then
wenzelm@20807
  1456
applies corr_thm and uses normalization by evaluation to "prove" f s =
wenzelm@20807
  1457
r and finally gets the theorem t = r, which is again applied to the
wenzelm@25177
  1458
subgoal. An Example is available in src/HOL/ex/ReflectionEx.thy.
wenzelm@25177
  1459
wenzelm@25177
  1460
* Reflection: Automatic reification now handels binding, an example is
wenzelm@25177
  1461
available in src/HOL/ex/ReflectionEx.thy
wenzelm@20807
  1462
wenzelm@25397
  1463
* HOL-Statespace: ``State Spaces: The Locale Way'' introduces a
schirmer@25409
  1464
command 'statespace' that is similar to 'record', but introduces an
wenzelm@25397
  1465
abstract specification based on the locale infrastructure instead of
wenzelm@25397
  1466
HOL types.  This leads to extra flexibility in composing state spaces,
wenzelm@25397
  1467
in particular multiple inheritance and renaming of components.

  1473
inputs so that root n (- x) = - root n x and sqrt (- x) = - sqrt x.
huffman@22971
  1474
Nonnegativity side conditions have been removed from many lemmas, so

*** ML ***
wenzelm@17878
  1552
wenzelm@24643
  1553
* ML basics: just one true type int, which coincides with IntInf.int
wenzelm@24643
  1554
(even on SML/NJ).
wenzelm@24643
  1555
wenzelm@22138
  1556
* ML within Isar: antiquotations allow to embed statically-checked
wenzelm@22138
  1557
formal entities in the source, referring to the context available at
wenzelm@22138
  1558
compile-time.  For example:
wenzelm@22138
  1559
wenzelm@25142
  1560
ML {* @{sort "{zero,one}"} *}
wenzelm@22138

The same works for sources being ``used'' within an Isar context.
wenzelm@22151
  1583
wenzelm@22152
  1584
* ML in Isar: improved error reporting; extra verbosity with
wenzelm@24706
  1585
ML_Context.trace enabled.
wenzelm@22152
  1586
wenzelm@19032
  1587
* Pure/General/table.ML: the join operations now works via exceptions
wenzelm@24706
  1588
DUP/SAME instead of type option. This is simpler in simple cases, and
wenzelm@19081
  1589
admits slightly more efficient complex applications.
wenzelm@18446
  1590
wenzelm@24800
  1591
* Pure: 'advanced' translation functions (parse_translation etc.) now
wenzelm@24800
  1592
use Context.generic instead of just theory.
wenzelm@24800
  1593
wenzelm@18642
  1594
* Pure: datatype Context.generic joins theory/Proof.context and
wenzelm@18644
  1595
provides some facilities for code that works in either kind of
wenzelm@18642
  1596
context, notably GenericDataFun for uniform theory and proof data.
wenzelm@18642
  1597
wenzelm@18737
  1598
* Pure: simplified internal attribute type, which is now always
wenzelm@24706
  1599
Context.generic * thm -> Context.generic * thm. Global (theory) vs.
wenzelm@24706
  1600
local (Proof.context) attributes have been discontinued, while
wenzelm@24706
  1601
minimizing code duplication. Thm.rule_attribute and
wenzelm@24706
  1602
Thm.declaration_attribute build canonical attributes; see also structure
wenzelm@24706
  1603
Context for further operations on Context.generic, notably
wenzelm@24706
  1604
GenericDataFun. INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt attribute type
wenzelm@19006
  1605
declarations and definitions.
wenzelm@19006
  1606
wenzelm@24800
  1607
* Context data interfaces (Theory/Proof/GenericDataFun): removed
wenzelm@24800
  1608
name/print, uninitialized data defaults to ad-hoc copy of empty value,
wenzelm@24800
  1609
init only required for impure data. INCOMPATIBILITY: empty really need
wenzelm@24800
  1610
to be empty (no dependencies on theory content!)
wenzelm@24800
  1611
wenzelm@19508
  1612
* Pure/kernel: consts certification ignores sort constraints given in
wenzelm@24800
  1613
signature declarations. (This information is not relevant to the
wenzelm@24800
  1614
logic, but only for type inference.) SIGNIFICANT INTERNAL CHANGE,
wenzelm@24800
  1615
potential INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@19508
  1616
wenzelm@19508
  1617
* Pure: axiomatic type classes are now purely definitional, with
wenzelm@19508
  1618
explicit proofs of class axioms and super class relations performed
wenzelm@24706
  1619
internally. See Pure/axclass.ML for the main internal interfaces --
wenzelm@19508
  1620
notably AxClass.define_class supercedes AxClass.add_axclass, and
wenzelm@24706
  1621
AxClass.axiomatize_class/classrel/arity supersede
wenzelm@19508
  1622
Sign.add_classes/classrel/arities.
wenzelm@19508
  1623
wenzelm@19006
  1624
* Pure/Isar: Args/Attrib parsers operate on Context.generic --
wenzelm@19006
  1625
global/local versions on theory vs. Proof.context have been
wenzelm@19006
  1626
discontinued; Attrib.syntax and Method.syntax have been adapted
wenzelm@19006
  1627
accordingly.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt parser expressions for
wenzelm@19006
  1628
attributes, methods, etc.
wenzelm@18642
  1629
wenzelm@18446
  1630
* Pure: several functions of signature "... -> theory -> theory * ..."
wenzelm@18446
  1631
have been reoriented to "... -> theory -> ... * theory" in order to
wenzelm@18446
  1632
allow natural usage in combination with the ||>, ||>>, |-> and
wenzelm@18446
  1633
fold_map combinators.
haftmann@18051
  1634
wenzelm@21647
  1635
* Pure: official theorem names (closed derivations) and additional
wenzelm@21647
  1636
comments (tags) are now strictly separate.  Name hints -- which are
wenzelm@21647
  1637
maintained as tags -- may be attached any time without affecting the
wenzelm@21647
  1638
derivation.
wenzelm@21647
  1639
wenzelm@18020
  1640
* Pure: primitive rule lift_rule now takes goal cterm instead of an
wenzelm@18145
  1641
actual goal state (thm).  Use Thm.lift_rule (Thm.cprem_of st i) to
wenzelm@18020
  1642
achieve the old behaviour.
wenzelm@18020
  1643
wenzelm@18020
  1644
* Pure: the "Goal" constant is now called "prop", supporting a
wenzelm@18020
  1645
slightly more general idea of ``protecting'' meta-level rule
wenzelm@18020
  1646
statements.
wenzelm@18020
  1647
wenzelm@20040
  1648
* Pure: Logic.(un)varify only works in a global context, which is now
wenzelm@20040
  1649
enforced instead of silently assumed.  INCOMPATIBILITY, may use
wenzelm@20040
  1650
Logic.legacy_(un)varify as temporary workaround.
wenzelm@20040
  1651
wenzelm@20090
  1652
* Pure: structure Name provides scalable operations for generating
wenzelm@20090
  1653
internal variable names, notably Name.variants etc.  This replaces
wenzelm@20090
  1654
some popular functions from term.ML:
wenzelm@20090
  1655
wenzelm@20090
  1656
  Term.variant		->  Name.variant
wenzelm@24800
  1657
  Term.variantlist	->  Name.variant_list
wenzelm@20090
  1658
  Term.invent_names	->  Name.invent_list
wenzelm@20090
  1659
wenzelm@20090
  1660
Note that low-level renaming rarely occurs in new code -- operations
wenzelm@20090
  1661
from structure Variable are used instead (see below).
wenzelm@20090
  1662
wenzelm@20040
  1663
* Pure: structure Variable provides fundamental operations for proper
wenzelm@20040
  1664
treatment of fixed/schematic variables in a context.  For example,
wenzelm@20040
  1665
Variable.import introduces fixes for schematics of given facts and
wenzelm@20040
  1666
Variable.export reverses the effect (up to renaming) -- this replaces
wenzelm@20040
  1667
various freeze_thaw operations.
wenzelm@20040
  1668
wenzelm@18567
  1669
* Pure: structure Goal provides simple interfaces for
wenzelm@17981
  1670
init/conclude/finish and tactical prove operations (replacing former
wenzelm@20040
  1671
Tactic.prove).  Goal.prove is the canonical way to prove results
wenzelm@20040
  1672
within a given context; Goal.prove_global is a degraded version for
wenzelm@20040
  1673
theory level goals, including a global Drule.standard.  Note that
wenzelm@20040
  1674
OldGoals.prove_goalw_cterm has long been obsolete, since it is
wenzelm@20040
  1675
ill-behaved in a local proof context (e.g. with local fixes/assumes or
wenzelm@20040
  1676
in a locale context).
wenzelm@17981
  1677
wenzelm@24706
  1678
* Pure/Syntax: generic interfaces for parsing (Syntax.parse_term etc.)
wenzelm@24706
  1679
and type checking (Syntax.check_term etc.), with common combinations
wenzelm@24706
  1680
(Syntax.read_term etc.). These supersede former Sign.read_term etc.
wenzelm@24706
  1681
which are considered legacy and await removal.
wenzelm@24706
  1682
wenzelm@24920
  1683
* Pure/Syntax: generic interfaces for type unchecking
wenzelm@24920
  1684
(Syntax.uncheck_terms etc.) and unparsing (Syntax.unparse_term etc.),
wenzelm@24920
  1685
with common combinations (Syntax.pretty_term, Syntax.string_of_term
wenzelm@24920
  1686
etc.).  Former Sign.pretty_term, Sign.string_of_term etc. are still
wenzelm@24924
  1687
available for convenience, but refer to the very same operations using
wenzelm@24924
  1688
a mere theory instead of a full context.
wenzelm@24920
  1689
wenzelm@18815
  1690
* Isar: simplified treatment of user-level errors, using exception
wenzelm@18687
  1691
ERROR of string uniformly.  Function error now merely raises ERROR,
wenzelm@18686
  1692
without any side effect on output channels.  The Isar toplevel takes
wenzelm@18686
  1693
care of proper display of ERROR exceptions.  ML code may use plain
wenzelm@18686
  1694
handle/can/try; cat_error may be used to concatenate errors like this:
wenzelm@18686
  1695
wenzelm@18686
  1696
  ... handle ERROR msg => cat_error msg "..."
wenzelm@18686
  1697
wenzelm@18686
  1698
Toplevel ML code (run directly or through the Isar toplevel) may be
wenzelm@18687
  1699
embedded into the Isar toplevel with exception display/debug like
wenzelm@18687
  1700
this:
wenzelm@18686
  1701
wenzelm@18686
  1702
  Isar.toplevel (fn () => ...)
wenzelm@18686
  1703
wenzelm@18686
  1704
INCOMPATIBILITY, removed special transform_error facilities, removed
wenzelm@18686
  1705
obsolete variants of user-level exceptions (ERROR_MESSAGE,
wenzelm@18686
  1706
Context.PROOF, ProofContext.CONTEXT, Proof.STATE, ProofHistory.FAIL)
wenzelm@18686
  1707
-- use plain ERROR instead.
wenzelm@18686
  1708
wenzelm@18815
  1709
* Isar: theory setup now has type (theory -> theory), instead of a
wenzelm@18722
  1710
list.  INCOMPATIBILITY, may use #> to compose setup functions.
wenzelm@18722
  1711
wenzelm@24706
  1712
* Isar: ML toplevel pretty printer for type Proof.context, subject to
wenzelm@24706
  1713
ProofContext.debug/verbose flags.
wenzelm@18815
  1714
wenzelm@18815
  1715
* Isar: Toplevel.theory_to_proof admits transactions that modify the
wenzelm@18815
  1716
theory before entering a proof state.  Transactions now always see a
wenzelm@18815
  1717
quasi-functional intermediate checkpoint, both in interactive and
wenzelm@18590
  1718
batch mode.
wenzelm@18567
  1719
wenzelm@24867
  1720
* Isar: simplified interfaces for outer syntax.  Renamed
wenzelm@24867
  1721
OuterSyntax.add_keywords to OuterSyntax.keywords.  Removed
wenzelm@24867
  1722
OuterSyntax.add_parsers -- this functionality is now included in
wenzelm@24867
  1723
OuterSyntax.command etc.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24867
  1724
wenzelm@17878
  1725
* Simplifier: the simpset of a running simplification process now
wenzelm@17878
  1726
contains a proof context (cf. Simplifier.the_context), which is the
wenzelm@17878
  1727
very context that the initial simpset has been retrieved from (by
wenzelm@17890
  1728
simpset_of/local_simpset_of).  Consequently, all plug-in components
wenzelm@17878
  1729
(solver, looper etc.) may depend on arbitrary proof data.
wenzelm@17878
  1730
wenzelm@17878
  1731
* Simplifier.inherit_context inherits the proof context (plus the
wenzelm@17878
  1732
local bounds) of the current simplification process; any simproc
wenzelm@17878
  1733
etc. that calls the Simplifier recursively should do this!  Removed
wenzelm@17878
  1734
former Simplifier.inherit_bounds, which is already included here --
wenzelm@17890
  1735
INCOMPATIBILITY.  Tools based on low-level rewriting may even have to
wenzelm@17890
  1736
specify an explicit context using Simplifier.context/theory_context.
wenzelm@17878
  1737
wenzelm@17878
  1738
* Simplifier/Classical Reasoner: more abstract interfaces
wenzelm@17878
  1739
change_simpset/claset for modifying the simpset/claset reference of a
wenzelm@17878
  1740
theory; raw versions simpset/claset_ref etc. have been discontinued --
wenzelm@17878
  1741
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17878
  1742
wenzelm@18540
  1743
* Provers: more generic wrt. syntax of object-logics, avoid hardwired
wenzelm@18540
  1744
"Trueprop" etc.

usedir option -M or the "max-threads" setting in Proof General. A
wenzelm@24800
  1764
speedup factor of 1.5--3.5 can be expected on a 4-core machine, and up
wenzelm@24800
  1765
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
  1777
nipkow@15130
  1778
  theory <name>
wenzelm@16234
  1779
  imports <theory1> ... <theoryN>

wenzelm@16234
  1784
wenzelm@16234
  1785
  theory <name> = <theory1> + ... + <theoryN>:
wenzelm@16234
  1786
wenzelm@16717
  1787
will disappear in the next release.  Use isatool fixheaders to convert
wenzelm@16717
  1788
existing theory files.  Note that there is no change in ancient

* Command 'find_theorems' searches for a list of criteria instead of a
wenzelm@17408
  1795
list of constants. Known criteria are: intro, elim, dest, name:string,
wenzelm@17408
  1796
simp:term, and any term. Criteria can be preceded by '-' to select
wenzelm@17408
  1797
theorems that do not match. Intro, elim, dest select theorems that
wenzelm@17408
  1798
match the current goal, name:s selects theorems whose fully qualified
wenzelm@17408
  1799
name contain s, and simp:term selects all simplification rules whose
wenzelm@17408
  1800
lhs match term.  Any other term is interpreted as pattern and selects
wenzelm@17408
  1801
all theorems matching the pattern. Available in ProofGeneral under

* Command 'thms_containing' has been discontinued in favour of
wenzelm@17408
  1811
'find_theorems'; INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17408
  1812
wenzelm@17385
  1813
* Communication with Proof General is now 8bit clean, which means that
wenzelm@17385
  1814
Unicode text in UTF-8 encoding may be used within theory texts (both
wenzelm@17408
  1815
formal and informal parts).  Cf. option -U of the Isabelle Proof
wenzelm@17538
  1816
General interface.  Here are some simple examples (cf. src/HOL/ex):

wenzelm@17385
  1820
wenzelm@17425
  1821
* Improved efficiency of the Simplifier and, to a lesser degree, the
wenzelm@17425
  1822
Classical Reasoner.  Typical big applications run around 2 times
wenzelm@17425
  1823
faster.

*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@15703
  1827
wenzelm@16234
  1828
* Commands 'display_drafts' and 'print_drafts' perform simple output
wenzelm@16234
  1829
of raw sources.  Only those symbols that do not require additional
wenzelm@16234
  1830
LaTeX packages (depending on comments in isabellesym.sty) are
wenzelm@16234
  1831
displayed properly, everything else is left verbatim.  isatool display
wenzelm@16234
  1832
and isatool print are used as front ends (these are subject to the
wenzelm@16234
  1833
DVI/PDF_VIEWER and PRINT_COMMAND settings, respectively).
wenzelm@16234
  1834
wenzelm@17047
  1835
* Command tags control specific markup of certain regions of text,
wenzelm@17047
  1836
notably folding and hiding.  Predefined tags include "theory" (for
wenzelm@17047
  1837
theory begin and end), "proof" for proof commands, and "ML" for
wenzelm@17047
  1838
commands involving ML code; the additional tags "visible" and
wenzelm@17047
  1839
"invisible" are unused by default.  Users may give explicit tag
wenzelm@17047
  1840
specifications in the text, e.g. ''by %invisible (auto)''.  The
wenzelm@17047
  1841
interpretation of tags is determined by the LaTeX job during document
wenzelm@17047
  1842
preparation: see option -V of isatool usedir, or options -n and -t of
wenzelm@17047
  1843
isatool document, or even the LaTeX macros \isakeeptag, \isafoldtag,
wenzelm@17047
  1844
\isadroptag.
wenzelm@17047
  1845
wenzelm@17047
  1846
Several document versions may be produced at the same time via isatool
wenzelm@17047
  1847
usedir (the generated index.html will link all of them).  Typical
wenzelm@17047
  1848
specifications include ''-V document=theory,proof,ML'' to present
wenzelm@17047
  1849
theory/proof/ML parts faithfully, ''-V outline=/proof,/ML'' to fold
wenzelm@17047
  1850
proof and ML commands, and ''-V mutilated=-theory,-proof,-ML'' to omit
wenzelm@17047
  1851
these parts without any formal replacement text.  The Isabelle site
wenzelm@17047
  1852
default settings produce ''document'' and ''outline'' versions as
wenzelm@17047
  1853
specified above.
wenzelm@16234
  1854
haftmann@17402
  1855
* Several new antiquotations:
wenzelm@15979
  1856
wenzelm@15979
  1857
  @{term_type term} prints a term with its type annotated;
wenzelm@15979
  1858
wenzelm@15979
  1859
  @{typeof term} prints the type of a term;
wenzelm@15979
  1860
wenzelm@16234
  1861
  @{const const} is the same as @{term const}, but checks that the
wenzelm@16234
  1862
  argument is a known logical constant;
wenzelm@15979
  1863
wenzelm@15979
  1864
  @{term_style style term} and @{thm_style style thm} print a term or
wenzelm@16234
  1865
  theorem applying a "style" to it
wenzelm@16234
  1866
wenzelm@17117
  1867
  @{ML text}
wenzelm@17117
  1868
wenzelm@16234
  1869
Predefined styles are 'lhs' and 'rhs' printing the lhs/rhs of
wenzelm@16234
  1870
definitions, equations, inequations etc., 'concl' printing only the
schirmer@17393
  1871
conclusion of a meta-logical statement theorem, and 'prem1' .. 'prem19'
wenzelm@16234
  1872
to print the specified premise.  TermStyle.add_style provides an ML
wenzelm@16234
  1873
interface for introducing further styles.  See also the "LaTeX Sugar"
wenzelm@17117
  1874
document practical applications.  The ML antiquotation prints
wenzelm@17117
  1875
type-checked ML expressions verbatim.
wenzelm@16234
  1876
wenzelm@17259
  1877
* Markup commands 'chapter', 'section', 'subsection', 'subsubsection',
wenzelm@17259
  1878
and 'text' support optional locale specification '(in loc)', which
wenzelm@17269
  1879
specifies the default context for interpreting antiquotations.  For
wenzelm@17269
  1880
example: 'text (in lattice) {* @{thm inf_assoc}*}'.
wenzelm@17259
  1881
wenzelm@17259
  1882
* Option 'locale=NAME' of antiquotations specifies an alternative
wenzelm@17259
  1883
context interpreting the subsequent argument.  For example: @{thm
wenzelm@17269
  1884
[locale=lattice] inf_assoc}.
wenzelm@17259
  1885
wenzelm@17097
  1886
* Proper output of proof terms (@{prf ...} and @{full_prf ...}) within
wenzelm@17097
  1887
a proof context.
wenzelm@17097
  1888
wenzelm@17097
  1889
* Proper output of antiquotations for theory commands involving a
wenzelm@17097
  1890
proof context (such as 'locale' or 'theorem (in loc) ...').
wenzelm@17097
  1891
wenzelm@17193
  1892
* Delimiters of outer tokens (string etc.) now produce separate LaTeX
wenzelm@17193
  1893
macros (\isachardoublequoteopen, isachardoublequoteclose etc.).
wenzelm@17193
  1894
wenzelm@17193
  1895
* isatool usedir: new option -C (default true) controls whether option
wenzelm@17193
  1896
-D should include a copy of the original document directory; -C false
wenzelm@17193
  1897
prevents unwanted effects such as copying of administrative CVS data.

*** Pure ***
wenzelm@16234
  1901
wenzelm@16234
  1902
* Considerably improved version of 'constdefs' command.  Now performs
wenzelm@16234
  1903
automatic type-inference of declared constants; additional support for
wenzelm@16234
  1904
local structure declarations (cf. locales and HOL records), see also
wenzelm@16234
  1905
isar-ref manual.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY: need to observe strictly
wenzelm@16234
  1906
sequential dependencies of definitions within a single 'constdefs'
wenzelm@16234
  1907
section; moreover, the declared name needs to be an identifier.  If
wenzelm@16234
  1908
all fails, consider to fall back on 'consts' and 'defs' separately.
wenzelm@16234
  1909
wenzelm@16234
  1910
* Improved indexed syntax and implicit structures.  First of all,
wenzelm@16234
  1911
indexed syntax provides a notational device for subscripted
wenzelm@16234
  1912
application, using the new syntax \<^bsub>term\<^esub> for arbitrary
wenzelm@16234
  1913
expressions.  Secondly, in a local context with structure
wenzelm@16234
  1914
declarations, number indexes \<^sub>n or the empty index (default
wenzelm@16234
  1915
number 1) refer to a certain fixed variable implicitly; option
wenzelm@16234
  1916
show_structs controls printing of implicit structures.  Typical
wenzelm@16234
  1917
applications of these concepts involve record types and locales.
wenzelm@16234
  1918
wenzelm@16234
  1919
* New command 'no_syntax' removes grammar declarations (and
wenzelm@16234
  1920
translations) resulting from the given syntax specification, which is
wenzelm@16234
  1921
interpreted in the same manner as for the 'syntax' command.
wenzelm@16234
  1922
wenzelm@16234
  1923
* 'Advanced' translation functions (parse_translation etc.) may depend
wenzelm@16234
  1924
on the signature of the theory context being presently used for
wenzelm@16234
  1925
parsing/printing, see also isar-ref manual.
wenzelm@16234
  1926
wenzelm@16856
  1927
* Improved 'oracle' command provides a type-safe interface to turn an
wenzelm@16856
  1928
ML expression of type theory -> T -> term into a primitive rule of
wenzelm@16856
  1929
type theory -> T -> thm (i.e. the functionality of Thm.invoke_oracle
wenzelm@16856
  1930
is already included here); see also FOL/ex/IffExample.thy;
wenzelm@16856
  1931
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@16856
  1932
wenzelm@17275
  1933
* axclass: name space prefix for class "c" is now "c_class" (was "c"
wenzelm@17275
  1934
before); "cI" is no longer bound, use "c.intro" instead.
wenzelm@17275
  1935
INCOMPATIBILITY.  This change avoids clashes of fact bindings for
wenzelm@17275
  1936
axclasses vs. locales.
wenzelm@17275
  1937
wenzelm@16234
  1938
* Improved internal renaming of symbolic identifiers -- attach primes
wenzelm@16234
  1939
instead of base 26 numbers.
wenzelm@16234
  1940
wenzelm@16234
  1941
* New flag show_question_marks controls printing of leading question
wenzelm@16234
  1942
marks in schematic variable names.
wenzelm@16234
  1943
wenzelm@16234
  1944
* In schematic variable names, *any* symbol following \<^isub> or
wenzelm@16234
  1945
\<^isup> is now treated as part of the base name.  For example, the
wenzelm@16234
  1946
following works without printing of awkward ".0" indexes:
wenzelm@16234
  1947
wenzelm@16234
  1948
  lemma "x\<^isub>1 = x\<^isub>2 ==> x\<^isub>2 = x\<^isub>1"
wenzelm@16234
  1949
    by simp
wenzelm@16234
  1950
wenzelm@16234
  1951
* Inner syntax includes (*(*nested*) comments*).
wenzelm@16234
  1952
wenzelm@17548
  1953
* Pretty printer now supports unbreakable blocks, specified in mixfix
wenzelm@16234
  1954
annotations as "(00...)".
wenzelm@16234
  1955
wenzelm@16234
  1956
* Clear separation of logical types and nonterminals, where the latter
wenzelm@16234
  1957
may only occur in 'syntax' specifications or type abbreviations.
wenzelm@16234
  1958
Before that distinction was only partially implemented via type class
wenzelm@16234
  1959
"logic" vs. "{}".  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY in rare cases of improper
wenzelm@16234
  1960
use of 'types'/'consts' instead of 'nonterminals'/'syntax'.  Some very
wenzelm@16234
  1961
exotic syntax specifications may require further adaption
wenzelm@17691
  1962
(e.g. Cube/Cube.thy).
wenzelm@16234
  1963
wenzelm@16234
  1964
* Removed obsolete type class "logic", use the top sort {} instead.
wenzelm@16234
  1965
Note that non-logical types should be declared as 'nonterminals'
wenzelm@16234
  1966
rather than 'types'.  INCOMPATIBILITY for new object-logic
wenzelm@16234
  1967
specifications.
wenzelm@16234
  1968
ballarin@17095
  1969
* Attributes 'induct' and 'cases': type or set names may now be
ballarin@17095
  1970
locally fixed variables as well.
ballarin@17095
  1971
wenzelm@16234
  1972
* Simplifier: can now control the depth to which conditional rewriting
wenzelm@16234
  1973
is traced via the PG menu Isabelle -> Settings -> Trace Simp Depth
wenzelm@16234
  1974
Limit.
wenzelm@16234
  1975
wenzelm@16234
  1976
* Simplifier: simplification procedures may now take the current
wenzelm@16234
  1977
simpset into account (cf. Simplifier.simproc(_i) / mk_simproc
wenzelm@16234
  1978
interface), which is very useful for calling the Simplifier
wenzelm@16234
  1979
recursively.  Minor INCOMPATIBILITY: the 'prems' argument of simprocs
wenzelm@16234
  1980
is gone -- use prems_of_ss on the simpset instead.  Moreover, the
wenzelm@16234
  1981
low-level mk_simproc no longer applies Logic.varify internally, to
wenzelm@16234
  1982
allow for use in a context of fixed variables.
wenzelm@16234
  1983
wenzelm@16234
  1984
* thin_tac now works even if the assumption being deleted contains !!
wenzelm@16234
  1985
or ==>.  More generally, erule now works even if the major premise of
wenzelm@16234
  1986
the elimination rule contains !! or ==>.
wenzelm@16234
  1987
wenzelm@17597
  1988
* Method 'rules' has been renamed to 'iprover'. INCOMPATIBILITY.
nipkow@17590
  1989
wenzelm@16234
  1990
* Reorganized bootstrapping of the Pure theories; CPure is now derived
wenzelm@16234
  1991
from Pure, which contains all common declarations already.  Both
wenzelm@16234
  1992
theories are defined via plain Isabelle/Isar .thy files.
wenzelm@16234
  1993
INCOMPATIBILITY: elements of CPure (such as the CPure.intro /
wenzelm@16234
  1994
CPure.elim / CPure.dest attributes) now appear in the Pure name space;
wenzelm@16234
  1995
use isatool fixcpure to adapt your theory and ML sources.
wenzelm@16234
  1996
wenzelm@16234
  1997
* New syntax 'name(i-j, i-, i, ...)' for referring to specific
wenzelm@16234
  1998
selections of theorems in named facts via index ranges.
wenzelm@16234
  1999
wenzelm@17097
  2000
* 'print_theorems': in theory mode, really print the difference
wenzelm@17097
  2001
wrt. the last state (works for interactive theory development only),
wenzelm@17097
  2002
in proof mode print all local facts (cf. 'print_facts');
wenzelm@17097
  2003
wenzelm@17397
  2004
* 'hide': option '(open)' hides only base names.
wenzelm@17397
  2005
wenzelm@17275
  2006
* More efficient treatment of intermediate checkpoints in interactive
wenzelm@17275
  2007
theory development.
wenzelm@17275
  2008
berghofe@17663
  2009
* Code generator is now invoked via code_module (incremental code
wenzelm@17664
  2010
generation) and code_library (modular code generation, ML structures
wenzelm@17664
  2011
for each theory).  INCOMPATIBILITY: new keywords 'file' and 'contains'
wenzelm@17664
  2012
must be quoted when used as identifiers.
wenzelm@17664
  2013
wenzelm@17664
  2014
* New 'value' command for reading, evaluating and printing terms using
wenzelm@17664
  2015
the code generator.  INCOMPATIBILITY: command keyword 'value' must be
wenzelm@17664
  2016
quoted when used as identifier.

*** Locales ***
ballarin@17095
  2020
wenzelm@17385
  2021
* New commands for the interpretation of locale expressions in
wenzelm@17385
  2022
theories (1), locales (2) and proof contexts (3).  These generate
wenzelm@17385
  2023
proof obligations from the expression specification.  After the
wenzelm@17385
  2024
obligations have been discharged, theorems of the expression are added
wenzelm@17385
  2025
to the theory, target locale or proof context.  The synopsis of the
wenzelm@17385
  2026
commands is a follows:
wenzelm@17385
  2027
ballarin@17095
  2028
  (1) interpretation expr inst
ballarin@17095
  2029
  (2) interpretation target < expr
ballarin@17095
  2030
  (3) interpret expr inst
wenzelm@17385
  2031
ballarin@17095
  2032
Interpretation in theories and proof contexts require a parameter
ballarin@17095
  2033
instantiation of terms from the current context.  This is applied to
wenzelm@17385
  2034
specifications and theorems of the interpreted expression.
wenzelm@17385
  2035
Interpretation in locales only permits parameter renaming through the
wenzelm@17385
  2036
locale expression.  Interpretation is smart in that interpretations
wenzelm@17385
  2037
that are active already do not occur in proof obligations, neither are
wenzelm@17385
  2038
instantiated theorems stored in duplicate.  Use 'print_interps' to
wenzelm@17385
  2039
inspect active interpretations of a particular locale.  For details,
ballarin@17436
  2040
see the Isar Reference manual.  Examples can be found in
ballarin@17436
  2041
HOL/Finite_Set.thy and HOL/Algebra/UnivPoly.thy.
wenzelm@16234
  2042
wenzelm@16234
  2043
INCOMPATIBILITY: former 'instantiate' has been withdrawn, use
wenzelm@16234
  2044
'interpret' instead.
wenzelm@16234
  2045
wenzelm@17385
  2046
* New context element 'constrains' for adding type constraints to
wenzelm@17385
  2047
parameters.
wenzelm@17385
  2048
wenzelm@17385
  2049
* Context expressions: renaming of parameters with syntax
wenzelm@17385
  2050
redeclaration.
ballarin@17095
  2051
ballarin@17095
  2052
* Locale declaration: 'includes' disallowed.
ballarin@17095
  2053
wenzelm@16234
  2054
* Proper static binding of attribute syntax -- i.e. types / terms /
wenzelm@16234
  2055
facts mentioned as arguments are always those of the locale definition
wenzelm@16234
  2056
context, independently of the context of later invocations.  Moreover,
wenzelm@16234
  2057
locale operations (renaming and type / term instantiation) are applied
wenzelm@16234
  2058
to attribute arguments as expected.
wenzelm@16234
  2059
wenzelm@16234
  2060
INCOMPATIBILITY of the ML interface: always pass Attrib.src instead of
wenzelm@16234
  2061
actual attributes; rare situations may require Attrib.attribute to
wenzelm@16234
  2062
embed those attributes into Attrib.src that lack concrete syntax.
wenzelm@16234
  2063
Attribute implementations need to cooperate properly with the static
wenzelm@16234
  2064
binding mechanism.  Basic parsers Args.XXX_typ/term/prop and
wenzelm@16234
  2065
Attrib.XXX_thm etc. already do the right thing without further
wenzelm@16234
  2066
intervention.  Only unusual applications -- such as "where" or "of"
wenzelm@16234
  2067
(cf. src/Pure/Isar/attrib.ML), which process arguments depending both
wenzelm@16234
  2068
on the context and the facts involved -- may have to assign parsed
wenzelm@16234
  2069
values to argument tokens explicitly.
wenzelm@16234
  2070
wenzelm@16234
  2071
* Changed parameter management in theorem generation for long goal
wenzelm@16234
  2072
statements with 'includes'.  INCOMPATIBILITY: produces a different
wenzelm@16234
  2073
theorem statement in rare situations.
wenzelm@16234
  2074
ballarin@17228
  2075
* Locale inspection command 'print_locale' omits notes elements.  Use
ballarin@17228
  2076
'print_locale!' to have them included in the output.

* Provers/hypsubst.ML: improved version of the subst method, for
wenzelm@16234
  2082
single-step rewriting: it now works in bound variable contexts. New is
wenzelm@16234
  2083
'subst (asm)', for rewriting an assumption.  INCOMPATIBILITY: may
wenzelm@16234
  2084
rewrite a different subterm than the original subst method, which is
wenzelm@16234
  2085
still available as 'simplesubst'.
wenzelm@16234
  2086
wenzelm@16234
  2087
* Provers/quasi.ML: new transitivity reasoners for transitivity only
wenzelm@16234
  2088
and quasi orders.
wenzelm@16234
  2089
wenzelm@16234

reflexive-transitive closure of relations.
wenzelm@16234
  2092
wenzelm@16234

limit (previously hard-coded with a value of 20) user-definable.
wenzelm@16234
  2095
wenzelm@16234

* Provers/simplifier.ML has been moved to Pure, where Simplifier.setup
wenzelm@16234

wenzelm@14878
  2105
  syntax (epsilon)
wenzelm@14878

The symbol \<some> is displayed as the alternative epsilon of LaTeX
wenzelm@16234
  2109
and x-symbol; use option '-m epsilon' to get it actually printed.
wenzelm@16234
  2110
Moreover, the mathematically important symbolic identifier \<epsilon>
wenzelm@16234
  2111
becomes available as variable, constant etc.  INCOMPATIBILITY,
wenzelm@16234
  2112
wenzelm@16234
  2113
* "x > y" abbreviates "y < x" and "x >= y" abbreviates "y <= x".
wenzelm@16234
  2114
Similarly for all quantifiers: "ALL x > y" etc.  The x-symbol for >=
wenzelm@17371
  2115
is \<ge>. New transitivity rules have been added to HOL/Orderings.thy to
avigad@17016
  2116
support corresponding Isar calculations.
wenzelm@16234
  2117
wenzelm@16234

wenzelm@16234
  2124
  {..n(}    {..<n}
wenzelm@16234
  2125
  {)n..}    {n<..}

  2128
  {)m..n(}  {m<..<n}
wenzelm@16234
  2129
wenzelm@16234
  2130
The old syntax is still supported but will disappear in the next
wenzelm@16234
  2131
release.  For conversion use the following Emacs search and replace
wenzelm@16234
  2132
patterns (these are not perfect but work quite well):
nipkow@15046
  2133
nipkow@15046
  2134
  {)\([^\.]*\)\.\.  ->  {\1<\.\.}

wenzelm@17533
  2137
* Theory Commutative_Ring (in Library): method comm_ring for proving
wenzelm@17533
  2138
equalities in commutative rings; method 'algebra' provides a generic
wenzelm@17533
  2139
interface.
wenzelm@17389
  2140
wenzelm@17389
  2141
* Theory Finite_Set: changed the syntax for 'setsum', summation over
wenzelm@16234
  2142
finite sets: "setsum (%x. e) A", which used to be "\<Sum>x:A. e", is
wenzelm@17371
  2143
now either "SUM x:A. e" or "\<Sum>x \<in> A. e". The bound variable can
paulson@17189
  2144
be a tuple pattern.
wenzelm@16234
  2145
wenzelm@16234
  2146
Some new syntax forms are available:
wenzelm@16234
  2147
wenzelm@16234
  2148
  "\<Sum>x | P. e"      for     "setsum (%x. e) {x. P}"
wenzelm@16234
  2149
  "\<Sum>x = a..b. e"   for     "setsum (%x. e) {a..b}"
wenzelm@16234
  2150
  "\<Sum>x = a..<b. e"  for     "setsum (%x. e) {a..<b}"
wenzelm@16234
  2151
  "\<Sum>x < k. e"      for     "setsum (%x. e) {..<k}"
wenzelm@16234
  2152
wenzelm@16234
  2153
The latter form "\<Sum>x < k. e" used to be based on a separate
wenzelm@16234
  2154
function "Summation", which has been discontinued.
wenzelm@16234
  2155
wenzelm@16234
  2156
* theory Finite_Set: in structured induction proofs, the insert case
wenzelm@16234
  2157
is now 'case (insert x F)' instead of the old counterintuitive 'case
wenzelm@16234
  2158
(insert F x)'.
wenzelm@16234
  2159
wenzelm@16234
  2160
* The 'refute' command has been extended to support a much larger
wenzelm@16234
  2161
fragment of HOL, including axiomatic type classes, constdefs and
wenzelm@16234
  2162
typedefs, inductive datatypes and recursion.
wenzelm@16234
  2163
webertj@17700
  2164
* New tactics 'sat' and 'satx' to prove propositional tautologies.
webertj@17700
  2165
Requires zChaff with proof generation to be installed.  See
webertj@17700
  2166
HOL/ex/SAT_Examples.thy for examples.
webertj@17619
  2167
wenzelm@16234
  2168
* Datatype induction via method 'induct' now preserves the name of the
wenzelm@16234
  2169
induction variable. For example, when proving P(xs::'a list) by
wenzelm@16234
  2170
induction on xs, the induction step is now P(xs) ==> P(a#xs) rather
wenzelm@16234
  2171
than P(list) ==> P(a#list) as previously.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY
wenzelm@16234
  2172
in unstructured proof scripts.
wenzelm@16234
  2173
wenzelm@16234
  2174
* Reworked implementation of records.  Improved scalability for
wenzelm@16234
  2175
records with many fields, avoiding performance problems for type
wenzelm@16234
  2176
inference. Records are no longer composed of nested field types, but
wenzelm@16234
  2177
of nested extension types. Therefore the record type only grows linear
wenzelm@16234
  2178
in the number of extensions and not in the number of fields.  The
wenzelm@16234
  2179
top-level (users) view on records is preserved.  Potential
wenzelm@16234
  2180
INCOMPATIBILITY only in strange cases, where the theory depends on the
wenzelm@16234
  2181
old record representation. The type generated for a record is called
wenzelm@16234
  2182
<record_name>_ext_type.
wenzelm@16234
  2183
wenzelm@16234
  2184
Flag record_quick_and_dirty_sensitive can be enabled to skip the
wenzelm@16234
  2185
proofs triggered by a record definition or a simproc (if
wenzelm@16234
  2186
quick_and_dirty is enabled).  Definitions of large records can take
wenzelm@16234
  2187
quite long.
wenzelm@16234
  2188
wenzelm@16234
  2189
New simproc record_upd_simproc for simplification of multiple record
wenzelm@16234
  2190
updates enabled by default.  Moreover, trivial updates are also
wenzelm@16234
  2191
removed: r(|x := x r|) = r.  INCOMPATIBILITY: old proofs break
wenzelm@16234
  2192
occasionally, since simplification is more powerful by default.
wenzelm@16234
  2193
wenzelm@17275
  2194
* typedef: proper support for polymorphic sets, which contain extra
wenzelm@17275
  2195
type-variables in the term.
wenzelm@17275
  2196
wenzelm@16234
  2197
* Simplifier: automatically reasons about transitivity chains
wenzelm@16234
  2198
involving "trancl" (r^+) and "rtrancl" (r^*) by setting up tactics
wenzelm@16234
  2199
provided by Provers/trancl.ML as additional solvers.  INCOMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@16234
  2200
old proofs break occasionally as simplification may now solve more
wenzelm@16234
  2201
goals than previously.
wenzelm@16234
  2202
wenzelm@16234
  2203
* Simplifier: converts x <= y into x = y if assumption y <= x is
wenzelm@16234
  2204
present.  Works for all partial orders (class "order"), in particular
wenzelm@16234
  2205
numbers and sets.  For linear orders (e.g. numbers) it treats ~ x < y
wenzelm@16234
  2206
just like y <= x.
wenzelm@16234
  2207
wenzelm@16234
  2208
* Simplifier: new simproc for "let x = a in f x".  If a is a free or
wenzelm@16234
  2209
bound variable or a constant then the let is unfolded.  Otherwise
wenzelm@16234
  2210
first a is simplified to b, and then f b is simplified to g. If
wenzelm@16234
  2211
possible we abstract b from g arriving at "let x = b in h x",
wenzelm@16234
  2212
otherwise we unfold the let and arrive at g.  The simproc can be
wenzelm@16234
  2213
enabled/disabled by the reference use_let_simproc.  Potential
wenzelm@16234
  2214
INCOMPATIBILITY since simplification is more powerful by default.

  2448
type-inference.

supported.  Patterns may include the constants cpair, spair, up, sinl,
wenzelm@17533

sinr, or any data constructor defined by the domain package. The given
wenzelm@17533

wenzelm@17533
  2468
but the proof obligation additionally includes an admissibility
wenzelm@17533

wenzelm@17408
  2574
  assoc = uncurry (AList.lookup (op =))
wenzelm@17408

* Pure/General: structure OrdList (cf. Pure/General/ord_list.ML)
wenzelm@17408

lists.

* Pure/General: generic tables (cf. Pure/General/table.ML) provide a
wenzelm@17408

few new operations; existing lookup and update are now curried to
wenzelm@17408
  2607
follow natural argument order (for use with fold etc.);

INCOMPATIBILITY, use (uncurry Symtab.lookup) etc. as last resort.

* Pure/General: output via the Isabelle channels of
wenzelm@17408
  2611
writeln/warning/error etc. is now passed through Output.output, with a
wenzelm@17408
  2612
hook for arbitrary transformations depending on the print_mode
wenzelm@17408
  2613
(cf. Output.add_mode -- the first active mode that provides a output
wenzelm@17408
  2614
function wins).  Already formatted output may be embedded into further
wenzelm@17408
  2615
text via Output.raw; the result of Pretty.string_of/str_of and derived
wenzelm@17408
  2616
functions (string_of_term/cterm/thm etc.) is already marked raw to
wenzelm@17408
  2617
accommodate easy composition of diagnostic messages etc.  Programmers
