wenzelm@35009
     9
* Code generator: details of internal data cache have no impact on the
wenzelm@35009
    10
user space functionality any longer.

*** HOL ***
haftmann@33993
    14
wenzelm@35009
    15
* New theory Algebras contains generic algebraic structures and
haftmann@34974
    16
generic algebraic operations.  INCOMPATIBILTY: constants zero, one,
wenzelm@35009
    17
plus, minus, uminus, times, inverse, divide, abs, sgn, less_eq and
wenzelm@35009
    18
less have been moved from HOL.thy to Algebras.thy.
haftmann@34974
    19
haftmann@34962
    20
* HOLogic.strip_psplit: types are returned in syntactic order, similar
haftmann@34962
    21
to other strip and tuple operations.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@34962
    22
haftmann@34946
    23
* Various old-style primrec specifications in the HOL theories have been
haftmann@34946
    24
replaced by new-style primrec, especially in theory List.  The corresponding
haftmann@34946
    25
constants now have authentic syntax.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@34946
    26
wenzelm@35009
    27
* Reorganized theory Multiset: less duplication, less historical
haftmann@34946
    28
organization of sections, conversion from associations lists to
haftmann@34946
    29
multisets, rudimentary code generation.  Use insert_DiffM2 [symmetric]
haftmann@34946
    30
instead of elem_imp_eq_diff_union, if needed.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@34946
    31
wenzelm@35009
    32
* Reorganized theory Sum_Type; Inl and Inr now have authentic syntax.
wenzelm@35009
    33
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@33993
    34
haftmann@33993
    35
* Code generation: ML and OCaml code is decorated with signatures.
haftmann@33993
    36
wenzelm@35009
    37
* Theory Complete_Lattice: lemmas top_def and bot_def have been
wenzelm@35009
    38
replaced by the more convenient lemmas Inf_empty and Sup_empty.
wenzelm@35009
    39
Dropped lemmas Inf_insert_simp and Sup_insert_simp, which are subsumed
wenzelm@35009
    40
by Inf_insert and Sup_insert.  Lemmas Inf_UNIV and Sup_UNIV replace
wenzelm@35009
    41
former Inf_Univ and Sup_Univ.  Lemmas inf_top_right and sup_bot_right
wenzelm@35009
    42
subsume inf_top and sup_bot respectively.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@35009
    43
wenzelm@35009
    44
* Theory Finite_Set and List: some lemmas have been generalized from
wenzelm@34076
    45
sets to lattices:
wenzelm@34076
    46
haftmann@34007
    47
  fun_left_comm_idem_inter      ~> fun_left_comm_idem_inf

haftmann@34007
    51
  Inter_fold_inter              ~> Inf_fold_inf
haftmann@34007
    52
  Union_fold_union              ~> Sup_fold_sup
haftmann@34007
    53
  inter_INTER_fold_inter        ~> inf_INFI_fold_inf
haftmann@34007
    54
  union_UNION_fold_union        ~> sup_SUPR_fold_sup
haftmann@34007
    55

haftmann@34007
    56
  UNION_fold_union              ~> SUPR_fold_sup
haftmann@34007
    57
wenzelm@35009
    58
* Theory List: added transpose.
wenzelm@35009

haftmann@33993
    61
*** ML ***
haftmann@33993
    62
wenzelm@35021
    63
* Renamed old-style Drule.standard to Drule.export_without_context, to
wenzelm@35021
    64
emphasize that this is in no way a standard operation.
wenzelm@35021
    65
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@35021
    66
wenzelm@34076
    67
* Curried take and drop in library.ML; negative length is interpreted
wenzelm@34076
    68
as infinity (as in chop).  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@34076
    69
wenzelm@34076
    70
* Subgoal.FOCUS (and variants): resulting goal state is normalized as
wenzelm@34076
    71
usual for resolution.  Rare INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@34076
    72
wenzelm@34259
    73
* Discontinued old TheoryDataFun with its copy/init operation -- data
wenzelm@34259
    74
needs to be pure.  Functor Theory_Data_PP retains the traditional
wenzelm@34259
    75
Pretty.pp argument to merge, which is absent in the standard
wenzelm@34259
    76
Theory_Data version.
wenzelm@34259

    79
*** System ***
wenzelm@34238
    80
wenzelm@34238
    81
* Discontinued special HOL_USEDIR_OPTIONS for the main HOL image;
wenzelm@34238
    82
ISABELLE_USEDIR_OPTIONS applies uniformly to all sessions.  Note that
wenzelm@34238
    83
proof terms are enabled unconditionally in the new HOL-Proofs image.
wenzelm@34238
    84
wenzelm@34255
    85
* Discontinued old ISABELLE and ISATOOL environment settings (legacy
wenzelm@34255
    86
feature since Isabelle2009).  Use ISABELLE_PROCESS and ISABELLE_TOOL,
wenzelm@34255
    87
respectively.

wenzelm@31547
    94
*** General ***
wenzelm@31547
    95
wenzelm@31547
    96
* Discontinued old form of "escaped symbols" such as \\<forall>.  Only
wenzelm@31547
    97
one backslash should be used, even in ML sources.
wenzelm@31547

*** Pure ***
haftmann@30951
   101
ballarin@32846
   102
* Locale interpretation propagates mixins along the locale hierarchy.
ballarin@32846
   103
The currently only available mixins are the equations used to map
ballarin@32846
   104
local definitions to terms of the target domain of an interpretation.
ballarin@32846
   105
wenzelm@33842
   106
* Reactivated diagnostic command 'print_interps'.  Use "print_interps
wenzelm@33842
   107
loc" to print all interpretations of locale "loc" in the theory.
wenzelm@33842
   108
Interpretations in proofs are not shown.
ballarin@32846
   109
ballarin@32983
   110
* Thoroughly revised locales tutorial.  New section on conditional
ballarin@32983
   111
interpretation.
ballarin@32983
   112
wenzelm@33843
   113
* On instantiation of classes, remaining undefined class parameters
wenzelm@33843
   114
are formally declared.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@33843
   115
haftmann@30951
   116
wenzelm@33842
   117
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@33842
   118
wenzelm@33842
   119
* New generalized style concept for printing terms: @{foo (style) ...}
wenzelm@33842
   120
instead of @{foo_style style ...}  (old form is still retained for
wenzelm@33842
   121
backward compatibility).  Styles can be also applied for
wenzelm@33842
   122
antiquotations prop, term_type and typeof.
haftmann@32891
   123
haftmann@32891
   124
haftmann@30930
   125
*** HOL ***
haftmann@30930
   126
wenzelm@33842
   127
* New proof method "smt" for a combination of first-order logic with
wenzelm@33842
   128
equality, linear and nonlinear (natural/integer/real) arithmetic, and
wenzelm@33842
   129
fixed-size bitvectors; there is also basic support for higher-order
wenzelm@33842
   130
features (esp. lambda abstractions).  It is an incomplete decision
wenzelm@33842
   131
procedure based on external SMT solvers using the oracle mechanism;
wenzelm@33842
   132
for the SMT solver Z3, this method is proof-producing.  Certificates
wenzelm@33842
   133
are provided to avoid calling the external solvers solely for
wenzelm@33842
   134
re-checking proofs.  Due to a remote SMT service there is no need for
wenzelm@33842
   135
installing SMT solvers locally.  See src/HOL/SMT.
wenzelm@33842
   136
wenzelm@33842
   137
* New commands to load and prove verification conditions generated by
wenzelm@33842
   138
the Boogie program verifier or derived systems (e.g. the Verifying C
wenzelm@33842
   139
Compiler (VCC) or Spec#).  See src/HOL/Boogie.
wenzelm@33842
   140
wenzelm@33842
   141
* New counterexample generator tool 'nitpick' based on the Kodkod
wenzelm@33842
   142
relational model finder.  See src/HOL/Tools/Nitpick and
wenzelm@33842
   143
src/HOL/Nitpick_Examples.
wenzelm@33842
   144
haftmann@33860
   145
* New commands 'code_pred' and 'values' to invoke the predicate
haftmann@33860
   146
compiler and to enumerate values of inductive predicates.
haftmann@33860
   147
haftmann@33860
   148
* A tabled implementation of the reflexive transitive closure.
haftmann@33860
   149
haftmann@33860
   150
* New implementation of quickcheck uses generic code generator;
haftmann@33860
   151
default generators are provided for all suitable HOL types, records
haftmann@33860
   152
and datatypes.  Old quickcheck can be re-activated importing theory
haftmann@33860
   153
Library/SML_Quickcheck.
haftmann@33860
   154
wenzelm@33843
   155
* New testing tool Mirabelle for automated proof tools.  Applies
wenzelm@33843
   156
several tools and tactics like sledgehammer, metis, or quickcheck, to
wenzelm@33843
   157
every proof step in a theory.  To be used in batch mode via the
wenzelm@33843
   158
"mirabelle" utility.
wenzelm@33843
   159
wenzelm@33843
   160
* New proof method "sos" (sum of squares) for nonlinear real
wenzelm@33843
   161
arithmetic (originally due to John Harison). It requires theory
wenzelm@33843
   162
Library/Sum_Of_Squares.  It is not a complete decision procedure but
wenzelm@33843
   163
works well in practice on quantifier-free real arithmetic with +, -,
wenzelm@33843
   164
*, ^, =, <= and <, i.e. boolean combinations of equalities and
wenzelm@33843
   165
inequalities between polynomials.  It makes use of external
wenzelm@33843
   166
semidefinite programming solvers.  Method "sos" generates a
wenzelm@33843
   167
certificate that can be pasted into the proof thus avoiding the need
wenzelm@33843
   168
to call an external tool every time the proof is checked.  See
wenzelm@33843
   169
src/HOL/Library/Sum_Of_Squares.
wenzelm@33843
   170
wenzelm@33843
   171
* New method "linarith" invokes existing linear arithmetic decision
wenzelm@33843
   172
procedure only.
wenzelm@33843
   173
wenzelm@33843
   174
* New command 'atp_minimal' reduces result produced by Sledgehammer.
wenzelm@33843
   175
wenzelm@33843
   176
* New Sledgehammer option "Full Types" in Proof General settings menu.
wenzelm@33843
   177
Causes full type information to be output to the ATPs.  This slows
wenzelm@33843
   178
ATPs down considerably but eliminates a source of unsound "proofs"
wenzelm@33843
   179
that fail later.
wenzelm@33843
   180
wenzelm@33843
   181
* New method "metisFT": A version of metis that uses full type
wenzelm@33843
   182
information in order to avoid failures of proof reconstruction.
wenzelm@33843
   183
wenzelm@33843
   184
* New evaluator "approximate" approximates an real valued term using
wenzelm@33843
   185
the same method as the approximation method.
wenzelm@33843
   186
wenzelm@33843
   187
* Method "approximate" now supports arithmetic expressions as
wenzelm@33843
   188
boundaries of intervals and implements interval splitting and Taylor
wenzelm@33843
   189
series expansion.
wenzelm@33843
   190
wenzelm@33843
   191
* ML antiquotation @{code_datatype} inserts definition of a datatype
wenzelm@33843
   192
generated by the code generator; e.g. see src/HOL/Predicate.thy.
wenzelm@33843
   193
haftmann@33860
   194
* New theory SupInf of the supremum and infimum operators for sets of
haftmann@33860
   195
reals.
haftmann@33860
   196
haftmann@33860
   197
* New theory Probability, which contains a development of measure
haftmann@33860
   198
theory, eventually leading to Lebesgue integration and probability.
haftmann@33860
   199
haftmann@33860
   200
* Extended Multivariate Analysis to include derivation and Brouwer's
haftmann@33860
   201
fixpoint theorem.
wenzelm@33843
   202
wenzelm@33842
   203
* Reorganization of number theory, INCOMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@33873
   204
  - new number theory development for nat and int, in theories Divides
wenzelm@33873
   205
    and GCD as well as in new session Number_Theory
wenzelm@33873
   206
  - some constants and facts now suffixed with _nat and _int
wenzelm@33873
   207
    accordingly
wenzelm@33873
   208
  - former session NumberTheory now named Old_Number_Theory, including
wenzelm@33873
   209
    theories Legacy_GCD and Primes (prefer Number_Theory if possible)
wenzelm@33842
   210
  - moved theory Pocklington from src/HOL/Library to
wenzelm@33842
   211
    src/HOL/Old_Number_Theory
haftmann@32479
   212
wenzelm@33873
   213
* Theory GCD includes functions Gcd/GCD and Lcm/LCM for the gcd and
wenzelm@33873
   214
lcm of finite and infinite sets. It is shown that they form a complete
haftmann@32600
   215
lattice.
haftmann@32600
   216
haftmann@32600
   217
* Class semiring_div requires superclass no_zero_divisors and proof of
haftmann@32600
   218
div_mult_mult1; theorems div_mult_mult1, div_mult_mult2,
haftmann@32600
   219
div_mult_mult1_if, div_mult_mult1 and div_mult_mult2 have been
haftmann@32600
   220
generalized to class semiring_div, subsuming former theorems
haftmann@32600
   221
zdiv_zmult_zmult1, zdiv_zmult_zmult1_if, zdiv_zmult_zmult1 and
haftmann@32600
   222
zdiv_zmult_zmult2.  div_mult_mult1 is now [simp] by default.
haftmann@32600
   223
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@32600
   224
haftmann@32588
   225
* Refinements to lattice classes and sets:
haftmann@32064
   226
  - less default intro/elim rules in locale variant, more default
haftmann@32064
   227
    intro/elim rules in class variant: more uniformity
wenzelm@33842
   228
  - lemma ge_sup_conv renamed to le_sup_iff, in accordance with
wenzelm@33842
   229
    le_inf_iff
wenzelm@33842
   230
  - dropped lemma alias inf_ACI for inf_aci (same for sup_ACI and
wenzelm@33842
   231
    sup_aci)
haftmann@32064
   232
  - renamed ACI to inf_sup_aci
haftmann@32600
   233
  - new class "boolean_algebra"
wenzelm@33842
   234
  - class "complete_lattice" moved to separate theory
haftmann@33860
   235
    "Complete_Lattice"; corresponding constants (and abbreviations)
wenzelm@33842
   236
    renamed and with authentic syntax:
haftmann@33860
   237
    Set.Inf ~>    Complete_Lattice.Inf
haftmann@33860
   238
    Set.Sup ~>    Complete_Lattice.Sup
haftmann@33860
   239
    Set.INFI ~>   Complete_Lattice.INFI
haftmann@33860
   240
    Set.SUPR ~>   Complete_Lattice.SUPR
haftmann@33860
   241
    Set.Inter ~>  Complete_Lattice.Inter
haftmann@33860
   242
    Set.Union ~>  Complete_Lattice.Union
haftmann@33860
   243
    Set.INTER ~>  Complete_Lattice.INTER
haftmann@33860
   244
    Set.UNION ~>  Complete_Lattice.UNION
haftmann@32600
   245
  - authentic syntax for
haftmann@32600
   246
    Set.Pow
haftmann@32600
   247
    Set.image
haftmann@32588
   248
  - mere abbreviations:
haftmann@32588
   249
    Set.empty               (for bot)
haftmann@32588
   250
    Set.UNIV                (for top)
haftmann@33860
   251
    Set.inter               (for inf, formerly Set.Int)
haftmann@33860
   252
    Set.union               (for sup, formerly Set.Un)
haftmann@32588
   253
    Complete_Lattice.Inter  (for Inf)
haftmann@32588
   254
    Complete_Lattice.Union  (for Sup)
haftmann@32606
   255
    Complete_Lattice.INTER  (for INFI)
haftmann@32606
   256
    Complete_Lattice.UNION  (for SUPR)
haftmann@32600
   257
  - object-logic definitions as far as appropriate
haftmann@32217
   258
haftmann@32691
   259
INCOMPATIBILITY.  Care is required when theorems Int_subset_iff or
wenzelm@33842
   260
Un_subset_iff are explicitly deleted as default simp rules; then also
wenzelm@33842
   261
their lattice counterparts le_inf_iff and le_sup_iff have to be
haftmann@32691
   262
deleted to achieve the desired effect.
haftmann@32064
   263
wenzelm@33842
   264
* Rules inf_absorb1, inf_absorb2, sup_absorb1, sup_absorb2 are no simp
wenzelm@33842
   265
rules by default any longer; the same applies to min_max.inf_absorb1
wenzelm@33842
   266
etc.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@33842
   267
wenzelm@33842
   268
* Rules sup_Int_eq and sup_Un_eq are no longer declared as
wenzelm@33842
   269
pred_set_conv by default.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@33842
   270
wenzelm@33842
   271
* Power operations on relations and functions are now one dedicated
haftmann@32706
   272
constant "compow" with infix syntax "^^".  Power operation on
wenzelm@31547
   273
multiplicative monoids retains syntax "^" and is now defined generic
wenzelm@31547
   274
in class power.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@31547
   275
wenzelm@33842
   276
* Relation composition "R O S" now has a more standard argument order:
wenzelm@33842
   277
"R O S = {(x, z). EX y. (x, y) : R & (y, z) : S}".  INCOMPATIBILITY,
wenzelm@33842
   278
rewrite propositions with "S O R" --> "R O S". Proofs may occasionally
wenzelm@33842
   279
break, since the O_assoc rule was not rewritten like this.  Fix using
wenzelm@33842
   280
O_assoc[symmetric].  The same applies to the curried version "R OO S".
wenzelm@32427
   281
nipkow@33057
   282
* Function "Inv" is renamed to "inv_into" and function "inv" is now an
wenzelm@33842
   283
abbreviation for "inv_into UNIV".  Lemmas are renamed accordingly.
nipkow@32988
   284
INCOMPATIBILITY.
nipkow@32988
   285
haftmann@33860
   286
* Most rules produced by inductive and datatype package have mandatory
haftmann@33860
   287
prefixes.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
nipkow@31790
   288
wenzelm@33842
   289
* Changed "DERIV_intros" to a dynamic fact, which can be augmented by
wenzelm@33842
   290
the attribute of the same name.  Each of the theorems in the list
wenzelm@33842
   291
DERIV_intros assumes composition with an additional function and
wenzelm@33842
   292
matches a variable to the derivative, which has to be solved by the
wenzelm@33842
   293
Simplifier.  Hence (auto intro!: DERIV_intros) computes the derivative
wenzelm@33873
   294
of most elementary terms.  Former Maclauren.DERIV_tac and
wenzelm@33873
   295
Maclauren.deriv_tac should be replaced by (auto intro!: DERIV_intros).
wenzelm@33873
   296
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@33860
   297
haftmann@33860
   298
* Code generator attributes follow the usual underscore convention:
haftmann@33860
   299
    code_unfold     replaces    code unfold
haftmann@33860
   300
    code_post       replaces    code post
haftmann@33860
   301
    etc.
haftmann@33860
   302
  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@31900
   303
krauss@33471
   304
* Renamed methods:
krauss@33471
   305
    sizechange -> size_change
krauss@33471
   306
    induct_scheme -> induction_schema
haftmann@33860
   307
  INCOMPATIBILITY.
nipkow@33673
   308
wenzelm@33843
   309
* Discontinued abbreviation "arbitrary" of constant "undefined".
wenzelm@33843
   310
INCOMPATIBILITY, use "undefined" directly.
wenzelm@33843
   311
haftmann@33860
   312
* Renamed theorems:
haftmann@33860
   313
    Suc_eq_add_numeral_1 -> Suc_eq_plus1
haftmann@33860
   314
    Suc_eq_add_numeral_1_left -> Suc_eq_plus1_left
haftmann@33860
   315
    Suc_plus1 -> Suc_eq_plus1
haftmann@33860
   316
    *anti_sym -> *antisym*
haftmann@33860
   317
    vector_less_eq_def -> vector_le_def
haftmann@33860
   318
  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@33860
   319
haftmann@33860
   320
* Added theorem List.map_map as [simp].  Removed List.map_compose.
haftmann@33860
   321
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@33860
   322
haftmann@33860
   323
* Removed predicate "M hassize n" (<--> card M = n & finite M).

wenzelm@33842
   329
* Theory Representable defines a class "rep" of domains that are
wenzelm@33842
   330
representable (via an ep-pair) in the universal domain type "udom".
huffman@33825
   331
Instances are provided for all type constructors defined in HOLCF.
huffman@33825
   332
huffman@33825
   333
* The 'new_domain' command is a purely definitional version of the
huffman@33825
   334
domain package, for representable domains.  Syntax is identical to the
huffman@33825
   335
old domain package.  The 'new_domain' package also supports indirect
huffman@33825
   336
recursion using previously-defined type constructors.  See
wenzelm@33842
   337
src/HOLCF/ex/New_Domain.thy for examples.
wenzelm@33842
   338
wenzelm@33842
   339
* Method "fixrec_simp" unfolds one step of a fixrec-defined constant
huffman@33825
   340
on the left-hand side of an equation, and then performs
huffman@33825
   341
simplification.  Rewriting is done using rules declared with the
wenzelm@33842
   342
"fixrec_simp" attribute.  The "fixrec_simp" method is intended as a
wenzelm@33842
   343
replacement for "fixpat"; see src/HOLCF/ex/Fixrec_ex.thy for examples.
huffman@33825
   344
huffman@33825
   345
* The pattern-match compiler in 'fixrec' can now handle constructors
huffman@33825
   346
with HOL function types.  Pattern-match combinators for the Pair
huffman@33825
   347
constructor are pre-configured.
huffman@33825
   348
huffman@33825
   349
* The 'fixrec' package now produces better fixed-point induction rules
huffman@33825
   350
for mutually-recursive definitions:  Induction rules have conclusions
huffman@33825
   351
of the form "P foo bar" instead of "P <foo, bar>".
huffman@33825
   352
huffman@33825
   353
* The constant "sq_le" (with infix syntax "<<" or "\<sqsubseteq>") has
huffman@33825
   354
been renamed to "below".  The name "below" now replaces "less" in many
wenzelm@33842
   355
theorem names.  (Legacy theorem names using "less" are still supported
wenzelm@33842
   356
as well.)
huffman@33825
   357
huffman@33825
   358
* The 'fixrec' package now supports "bottom patterns".  Bottom
huffman@33825
   359
patterns can be used to generate strictness rules, or to make
huffman@33825
   360
functions more strict (much like the bang-patterns supported by the
wenzelm@33873
   361
Glasgow Haskell Compiler).  See src/HOLCF/ex/Fixrec_ex.thy for
wenzelm@33873
   362

   366
wenzelm@33843
   367
* Support for Poly/ML 5.3.0, with improved reporting of compiler
wenzelm@33843
   368
errors and run-time exceptions, including detailed source positions.
wenzelm@33843
   369
wenzelm@33843
   370
* Structure Name_Space (formerly NameSpace) now manages uniquely
wenzelm@33843
   371
identified entries, with some additional information such as source
wenzelm@33843
   372
position, logical grouping etc.
wenzelm@33843
   373
wenzelm@33524
   374
* Theory and context data is now introduced by the simplified and
wenzelm@33524
   375
modernized functors Theory_Data, Proof_Data, Generic_Data.  Data needs
wenzelm@33524
   376
to be pure, but the old TheoryDataFun for mutable data (with explicit
wenzelm@33524
   377
copy operation) is still available for some time.
wenzelm@33524
   378
wenzelm@32742
   379
* Structure Synchronized (cf. src/Pure/Concurrent/synchronized.ML)
wenzelm@32742
   380
provides a high-level programming interface to synchronized state
wenzelm@32742
   381
variables with atomic update.  This works via pure function
wenzelm@32742
   382
application within a critical section -- its runtime should be as
wenzelm@32742
   383
short as possible; beware of deadlocks if critical code is nested,
wenzelm@32742
   384
either directly or indirectly via other synchronized variables!
wenzelm@32742
   385
wenzelm@32742
   386
* Structure Unsynchronized (cf. src/Pure/ML-Systems/unsynchronized.ML)
wenzelm@32742
   387
wraps raw ML references, explicitly indicating their non-thread-safe
wenzelm@32742
   388
behaviour.  The Isar toplevel keeps this structure open, to
wenzelm@32742
   389
accommodate Proof General as well as quick and dirty interactive
wenzelm@32742
   390
experiments with references.
wenzelm@32742
   391
wenzelm@32365
   392
* PARALLEL_CHOICE and PARALLEL_GOALS provide basic support for
wenzelm@32365
   393
parallel tactical reasoning.
wenzelm@32365
   394
wenzelm@32427
   395
* Tacticals Subgoal.FOCUS, Subgoal.FOCUS_PREMS, Subgoal.FOCUS_PARAMS
wenzelm@32427
   396
are similar to SUBPROOF, but are slightly more flexible: only the
wenzelm@32427
   397
specified parts of the subgoal are imported into the context, and the
wenzelm@32427
   398
body tactic may introduce new subgoals and schematic variables.
wenzelm@32427
   399
wenzelm@32427
   400
* Old tactical METAHYPS, which does not observe the proof context, has
wenzelm@32427
   401
been renamed to Old_Goals.METAHYPS and awaits deletion.  Use SUBPROOF
wenzelm@32427
   402
or Subgoal.FOCUS etc.
wenzelm@32216
   403
wenzelm@31971
   404
* Renamed functor TableFun to Table, and GraphFun to Graph.  (Since
wenzelm@31971
   405
functors have their own ML name space there is no point to mark them
wenzelm@31971
   406
separately.)  Minor INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@31971
   407
wenzelm@31901
   408
* Renamed NamedThmsFun to Named_Thms.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@31901
   409
wenzelm@33842
   410
* Renamed several structures FooBar to Foo_Bar.  Occasional,
wenzelm@33842
   411
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@33842
   412
wenzelm@33843
   413
* Operations of structure Skip_Proof no longer require quick_and_dirty
wenzelm@33843
   414
mode, which avoids critical setmp.
wenzelm@33843
   415
wenzelm@31306
   416
* Eliminated old Attrib.add_attributes, Method.add_methods and related
wenzelm@33842
   417
combinators for "args".  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to use simplified
wenzelm@31306
   418
Attrib/Method.setup introduced in Isabelle2009.
wenzelm@31304
   419
wenzelm@32151
   420
* Proper context for simpset_of, claset_of, clasimpset_of.  May fall
wenzelm@32151
   421
back on global_simpset_of, global_claset_of, global_clasimpset_of as
wenzelm@32151
   422
last resort.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@32151
   423
wenzelm@32092
   424
* Display.pretty_thm now requires a proper context (cf. former
wenzelm@32092
   425
ProofContext.pretty_thm).  May fall back on Display.pretty_thm_global
wenzelm@32092
   426
or even Display.pretty_thm_without_context as last resort.
wenzelm@32092
   427
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@32092
   428
wenzelm@32433
   429
* Discontinued Display.pretty_ctyp/cterm etc.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use
wenzelm@32433

   437
(max. speedup factor 5.0).  See also Goal.parallel_proofs in ML and

   442
wenzelm@32326

   444
IsaMakefile, not just hardwired "logics".
wenzelm@32326
   445
wenzelm@33842
   446
* Removed "compress" option from isabelle-process and isabelle usedir;
wenzelm@33842

this is always enabled.

*** General ***
wenzelm@27599
   461
wenzelm@28504
   462
* Simplified main Isabelle executables, with less surprises on
wenzelm@28504
   463
case-insensitive file-systems (such as Mac OS).
wenzelm@28504
   464
wenzelm@28504
   465
  - The main Isabelle tool wrapper is now called "isabelle" instead of
wenzelm@28504
   466
    "isatool."
wenzelm@28504
   467
wenzelm@28504
   468
  - The former "isabelle" alias for "isabelle-process" has been
wenzelm@28504
   469
    removed (should rarely occur to regular users).
wenzelm@28504
   470
wenzelm@28915
   471
  - The former "isabelle-interface" and its alias "Isabelle" have been
wenzelm@28915
   472
    removed (interfaces are now regular Isabelle tools).
wenzelm@28504
   473
wenzelm@28504
   474
Within scripts and make files, the Isabelle environment variables
wenzelm@28504
   475
ISABELLE_TOOL and ISABELLE_PROCESS replace old ISATOOL and ISABELLE,
wenzelm@28504
   476
respectively.  (The latter are still available as legacy feature.)
wenzelm@28504
   477
wenzelm@28915
   478
The old isabelle-interface wrapper could react in confusing ways if
wenzelm@28915
   479
the interface was uninstalled or changed otherwise.  Individual
wenzelm@28915
   480
interface tool configuration is now more explicit, see also the
wenzelm@28915
   481
Isabelle system manual.  In particular, Proof General is now available
wenzelm@28915
   482
via "isabelle emacs".
wenzelm@28504
   483
wenzelm@28504
   484
INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt derivative scripts.  Users may need to
wenzelm@28504
   485
purge installed copies of Isabelle executables and re-run "isabelle
wenzelm@28504
   486
install -p ...", or use symlinks.
wenzelm@28504
   487
wenzelm@28914
   488
* The default for ISABELLE_HOME_USER is now ~/.isabelle instead of the
wenzelm@30845
   489
old ~/isabelle, which was slightly non-standard and apt to cause
wenzelm@30845
   490
surprises on case-insensitive file-systems (such as Mac OS).
wenzelm@28914
   491
wenzelm@28914
   492
INCOMPATIBILITY, need to move existing ~/isabelle/etc,
wenzelm@28914
   493
~/isabelle/heaps, ~/isabelle/browser_info to the new place.  Special
wenzelm@28914
   494
care is required when using older releases of Isabelle.  Note that
wenzelm@28914
   495
ISABELLE_HOME_USER can be changed in Isabelle/etc/settings of any
wenzelm@30845
   496
Isabelle distribution, in order to use the new ~/.isabelle uniformly.
wenzelm@28914
   497
wenzelm@29161
   498
* Proofs of fully specified statements are run in parallel on
wenzelm@30845
   499
multi-core systems.  A speedup factor of 2.5 to 3.2 can be expected on
wenzelm@30845
   500
a regular 4-core machine, if the initial heap space is made reasonably
wenzelm@30845
   501
large (cf. Poly/ML option -H).  (Requires Poly/ML 5.2.1 or later.)
wenzelm@30845
   502
wenzelm@30845
   503
* The main reference manuals ("isar-ref", "implementation", and
wenzelm@30845
   504
"system") have been updated and extended.  Formally checked references
wenzelm@30845
   505

   509
wenzelm@30845
   510
* Complete re-implementation of locales.  INCOMPATIBILITY in several
wenzelm@30845
   511
respects.  The most important changes are listed below.  See the
wenzelm@30845
   512
Tutorial on Locales ("locales" manual) for details.
ballarin@29253
   513
ballarin@29253
   514
- In locale expressions, instantiation replaces renaming.  Parameters
ballarin@29253
   515
must be declared in a for clause.  To aid compatibility with previous
ballarin@29253
   516
parameter inheritance, in locale declarations, parameters that are not
ballarin@29253
   517
'touched' (instantiation position "_" or omitted) are implicitly added
ballarin@29253
   518
with their syntax at the beginning of the for clause.
ballarin@29253
   519
ballarin@29253
   520
- Syntax from abbreviations and definitions in locales is available in
ballarin@29253
   521
locale expressions and context elements.  The latter is particularly
ballarin@29253
   522
useful in locale declarations.
ballarin@29253
   523
ballarin@29253
   524
- More flexible mechanisms to qualify names generated by locale
ballarin@29253
   525
expressions.  Qualifiers (prefixes) may be specified in locale
wenzelm@30728
   526
expressions, and can be marked as mandatory (syntax: "name!:") or
wenzelm@30728
   527
optional (syntax "name?:").  The default depends for plain "name:"
wenzelm@30728
   528
depends on the situation where a locale expression is used: in
wenzelm@30728
   529
commands 'locale' and 'sublocale' prefixes are optional, in
wenzelm@30845
   530
'interpretation' and 'interpret' prefixes are mandatory.  The old
wenzelm@30728
   531
implicit qualifiers derived from the parameter names of a locale are
wenzelm@30728
   532
no longer generated.
wenzelm@30106
   533
wenzelm@30845
   534
- Command "sublocale l < e" replaces "interpretation l < e".  The
wenzelm@30106
   535
instantiation clause in "interpretation" and "interpret" (square
wenzelm@30106
   536
brackets) is no longer available.  Use locale expressions.
ballarin@29253
   537
wenzelm@30845
   538
- When converting proof scripts, mandatory qualifiers in
wenzelm@30728
   539
'interpretation' and 'interpret' should be retained by default, even
wenzelm@30845
   540
if this is an INCOMPATIBILITY compared to former behavior.  In the
wenzelm@30845
   541
worst case, use the "name?:" form for non-mandatory ones.  Qualifiers
wenzelm@30845
   542
in locale expressions range over a single locale instance only.
wenzelm@30845
   543
wenzelm@30845
   544
- Dropped locale element "includes".  This is a major INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   545
In existing theorem specifications replace the includes element by the
wenzelm@30845
   546
respective context elements of the included locale, omitting those
wenzelm@30845
   547
that are already present in the theorem specification.  Multiple
wenzelm@30845
   548
assume elements of a locale should be replaced by a single one
wenzelm@30845
   549
involving the locale predicate.  In the proof body, declarations (most
wenzelm@30845
   550
notably theorems) may be regained by interpreting the respective
wenzelm@30845
   551
locales in the proof context as required (command "interpret").
wenzelm@30845
   552
wenzelm@30845
   553
If using "includes" in replacement of a target solely because the
wenzelm@30845
   554
parameter types in the theorem are not as general as in the target,
wenzelm@30845
   555
consider declaring a new locale with additional type constraints on
wenzelm@30845
   556
the parameters (context element "constrains").
wenzelm@30845
   557
wenzelm@30845
   558
- Discontinued "locale (open)".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   559
wenzelm@30845
   560
- Locale interpretation commands no longer attempt to simplify goal.
wenzelm@30845
   561
INCOMPATIBILITY: in rare situations the generated goal differs.  Use
wenzelm@30845
   562
methods intro_locales and unfold_locales to clarify.
wenzelm@30845
   563
wenzelm@30845
   564
- Locale interpretation commands no longer accept interpretation
wenzelm@30845
   565
attributes.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   566
wenzelm@30845
   567
* Class declaration: so-called "base sort" must not be given in import
wenzelm@30845
   568
list any longer, but is inferred from the specification.  Particularly
wenzelm@30845
   569
in HOL, write
wenzelm@30845
   570
wenzelm@30845
   571
    class foo = ...
wenzelm@30845
   572
wenzelm@30845
   573
instead of
wenzelm@30845
   574
wenzelm@30845
   575
    class foo = type + ...
wenzelm@30845
   576
wenzelm@30845
   577
* Class target: global versions of theorems stemming do not carry a
wenzelm@30845
   578
parameter prefix any longer.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   579
wenzelm@30845
   580
* Class 'instance' command no longer accepts attached definitions.
wenzelm@30845
   581
INCOMPATIBILITY, use proper 'instantiation' target instead.
wenzelm@30845
   582
wenzelm@30845
   583
* Recovered hiding of consts, which was accidentally broken in
wenzelm@30845
   584
Isabelle2007.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY, ``hide const c'' really
wenzelm@30845
   585
makes c inaccessible; consider using ``hide (open) const c'' instead.
wenzelm@30845
   586
wenzelm@30845
   587
* Slightly more coherent Pure syntax, with updated documentation in
wenzelm@30845
   588
isar-ref manual.  Removed locales meta_term_syntax and
wenzelm@30845
   589
meta_conjunction_syntax: TERM and &&& (formerly &&) are now permanent,
wenzelm@30845
   590
INCOMPATIBILITY in rare situations.  Note that &&& should not be used
wenzelm@30845
   591
directly in regular applications.
wenzelm@30845
   592
wenzelm@30845
   593
* There is a new syntactic category "float_const" for signed decimal
wenzelm@30845
   594
fractions (e.g. 123.45 or -123.45).
wenzelm@30845
   595
wenzelm@30845
   596
* Removed exotic 'token_translation' command.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use ML
wenzelm@30845
   597
interface with 'setup' command instead.
wenzelm@30845
   598
wenzelm@30845
   599
* Command 'local_setup' is similar to 'setup', but operates on a local
wenzelm@30845
   600
theory context.
haftmann@27104
   601
wenzelm@28114
   602
* The 'axiomatization' command now only works within a global theory
wenzelm@28114
   603
context.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@28114
   604
wenzelm@30845
   605
* Goal-directed proof now enforces strict proof irrelevance wrt. sort
wenzelm@30845
   606
hypotheses.  Sorts required in the course of reasoning need to be
wenzelm@30845
   607
covered by the constraints in the initial statement, completed by the
wenzelm@30845
   608
type instance information of the background theory.  Non-trivial sort
wenzelm@30845
   609
hypotheses, which rarely occur in practice, may be specified via
wenzelm@30845
   610
vacuous propositions of the form SORT_CONSTRAINT('a::c).  For example:
wenzelm@30845
   611
wenzelm@30845
   612
  lemma assumes "SORT_CONSTRAINT('a::empty)" shows False ...
wenzelm@30845
   613
wenzelm@30845
   614
The result contains an implicit sort hypotheses as before --
wenzelm@30845
   615
SORT_CONSTRAINT premises are eliminated as part of the canonical rule
wenzelm@30845
   616
normalization.
wenzelm@30845
   617
wenzelm@30845
   618
* Generalized Isar history, with support for linear undo, direct state
wenzelm@30845
   619
addressing etc.
wenzelm@30845
   620
wenzelm@30845
   621
* Changed defaults for unify configuration options:
wenzelm@30845
   622
wenzelm@30845
   623
  unify_trace_bound = 50 (formerly 25)
wenzelm@30845
   624
  unify_search_bound = 60 (formerly 30)
wenzelm@30845
   625
wenzelm@30845
   626
* Different bookkeeping for code equations (INCOMPATIBILITY):
wenzelm@30845
   627
wenzelm@30845
   628
  a) On theory merge, the last set of code equations for a particular
wenzelm@30845
   629
     constant is taken (in accordance with the policy applied by other
wenzelm@30845
   630
     parts of the code generator framework).
wenzelm@30845
   631
wenzelm@30845
   632
  b) Code equations stemming from explicit declarations (e.g. code
wenzelm@30845
   633
     attribute) gain priority over default code equations stemming
wenzelm@30845
   634
     from definition, primrec, fun etc.
wenzelm@30845
   635
wenzelm@30845
   636
* Keyword 'code_exception' now named 'code_abort'.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   637
haftmann@30965
   638
* Unified theorem tables for both code generators.  Thus [code
wenzelm@30845
   639
func] has disappeared and only [code] remains.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30577
   640
wenzelm@30577
   641
* Command 'find_consts' searches for constants based on type and name
wenzelm@30577
   642
patterns, e.g.
kleing@29883
   643
kleing@29883
   644
    find_consts "_ => bool"
kleing@29883
   645
wenzelm@30106
   646
By default, matching is against subtypes, but it may be restricted to
wenzelm@30728
   647
the whole type.  Searching by name is possible.  Multiple queries are
wenzelm@30106
   648
conjunctive and queries may be negated by prefixing them with a
wenzelm@30106
   649
hyphen:
kleing@29883
   650
kleing@29883
   651
    find_consts strict: "_ => bool" name: "Int" -"int => int"
kleing@29861
   652
wenzelm@30845
   653
* New 'find_theorems' criterion "solves" matches theorems that
wenzelm@30845
   654
directly solve the current goal (modulo higher-order unification).
wenzelm@30845
   655
wenzelm@30845
   656
* Auto solve feature for main theorem statements: whenever a new goal
wenzelm@30845
   657
is stated, "find_theorems solves" is called; any theorems that could
wenzelm@30845
   658
solve the lemma directly are listed as part of the goal state.
wenzelm@30845
   659
Cf. associated options in Proof General Isabelle settings menu,
wenzelm@30845
   660
enabled by default, with reasonable timeout for pathological cases of
wenzelm@30845
   661
higher-order unification.

* Antiquotation @{lemma} now imitates a regular terminal proof,
wenzelm@27392
   667
demanding keyword 'by' and supporting the full method expression
wenzelm@27519
   668
syntax just like the Isar command 'by'.

*** HOL ***
haftmann@27104
   672
wenzelm@30845
   673
* Integrated main parts of former image HOL-Complex with HOL.  Entry
wenzelm@30845
   674
points Main and Complex_Main remain as before.
wenzelm@30845
   675
wenzelm@30845
   676
* Logic image HOL-Plain provides a minimal HOL with the most important
wenzelm@30845
   677
tools available (inductive, datatype, primrec, ...).  This facilitates
wenzelm@30845
   678
experimentation and tool development.  Note that user applications
wenzelm@30845
   679
(and library theories) should never refer to anything below theory
wenzelm@30845
   680
Main, as before.
wenzelm@30845
   681
wenzelm@30845
   682
* Logic image HOL-Main stops at theory Main, and thus facilitates
wenzelm@30845
   683
experimentation due to shorter build times.
wenzelm@30845
   684
wenzelm@30845
   685
* Logic image HOL-NSA contains theories of nonstandard analysis which
wenzelm@30845
   686
were previously part of former HOL-Complex.  Entry point Hyperreal
wenzelm@30845
   687
remains valid, but theories formerly using Complex_Main should now use
wenzelm@30845
   688
new entry point Hypercomplex.
wenzelm@30845
   689
wenzelm@30845
   690
* Generic ATP manager for Sledgehammer, based on ML threads instead of
wenzelm@30845
   691
Posix processes.  Avoids potentially expensive forking of the ML
wenzelm@30845
   692
process.  New thread-based implementation also works on non-Unix
wenzelm@30845
   693
platforms (Cygwin).  Provers are no longer hardwired, but defined
wenzelm@30845
   694
within the theory via plain ML wrapper functions.  Basic Sledgehammer
wenzelm@30845
   695
commands are covered in the isar-ref manual.
wenzelm@30845
   696
wenzelm@30845
   697
* Wrapper scripts for remote SystemOnTPTP service allows to use
wenzelm@30845
   698
sledgehammer without local ATP installation (Vampire etc.). Other
wenzelm@30845
   699
provers may be included via suitable ML wrappers, see also

wenzelm@30845
   704
wenzelm@30845
   705
* The metis method no longer fails because the theorem is too trivial
wenzelm@30845
   706
(contains the empty clause).
wenzelm@30845
   707
wenzelm@30845
   708
* The metis method now fails in the usual manner, rather than raising
wenzelm@30845
   709
an exception, if it determines that it cannot prove the theorem.
wenzelm@30845
   710
wenzelm@30845
   711
* Method "coherent" implements a prover for coherent logic (see also

   712
src/Tools/coherent.ML).
wenzelm@30845
   713
wenzelm@30845
   714
* Constants "undefined" and "default" replace "arbitrary".  Usually
wenzelm@30845
   715
"undefined" is the right choice to replace "arbitrary", though
wenzelm@30845
   716
logically there is no difference.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   717
wenzelm@30845
   718
* Command "value" now integrates different evaluation mechanisms.  The
wenzelm@30845
   719
result of the first successful evaluation mechanism is printed.  In
wenzelm@30845
   720
square brackets a particular named evaluation mechanisms may be
wenzelm@30845
   721
specified (currently, [SML], [code] or [nbe]).  See further

   722
src/HOL/ex/Eval_Examples.thy.
wenzelm@30845
   723
wenzelm@30845
   724
* Normalization by evaluation now allows non-leftlinear equations.
wenzelm@30845
   725
Declare with attribute [code nbe].
wenzelm@30845
   726
wenzelm@30845
   727
* Methods "case_tac" and "induct_tac" now refer to the very same rules
wenzelm@30845
   728
as the structured Isar versions "cases" and "induct", cf. the
wenzelm@30845
   729
corresponding "cases" and "induct" attributes.  Mutual induction rules
wenzelm@30845
   730
are now presented as a list of individual projections
wenzelm@30845
   731
(e.g. foo_bar.inducts for types foo and bar); the old format with
wenzelm@30845
   732
explicit HOL conjunction is no longer supported.  INCOMPATIBILITY, in
wenzelm@30845
   733
rare situations a different rule is selected --- notably nested tuple
wenzelm@30845
   734
elimination instead of former prod.exhaust: use explicit (case_tac t
wenzelm@30845
   735
rule: prod.exhaust) here.
wenzelm@30845
   736
wenzelm@30845
   737
* Attributes "cases", "induct", "coinduct" support "del" option.
wenzelm@30845
   738
wenzelm@30845
   739
* Removed fact "case_split_thm", which duplicates "case_split".
wenzelm@30845
   740
wenzelm@30845
   741
* The option datatype has been moved to a new theory Option.  Renamed
wenzelm@30845
   742
option_map to Option.map, and o2s to Option.set, INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   743
wenzelm@30845
   744
* New predicate "strict_mono" classifies strict functions on partial
wenzelm@30845
   745
orders.  With strict functions on linear orders, reasoning about
wenzelm@30845
   746
(in)equalities is facilitated by theorems "strict_mono_eq",
wenzelm@30845
   747
"strict_mono_less_eq" and "strict_mono_less".
wenzelm@30845
   748

   774
interval arithmetic.  In the formulas are also the transcendental

* If methods "eval" and "evaluation" encounter a structured proof
wenzelm@30845
   840
state with !!/==>, only the conclusion is evaluated to True (if
wenzelm@30845
   841
possible), avoiding strange error messages.
wenzelm@30845
   842
wenzelm@30845
   843
* Method "sizechange" automates termination proofs using (a
wenzelm@30845
   844
modification of) the size-change principle.  Requires SAT solver.  See
wenzelm@30845
   845
src/HOL/ex/Termination.thy for examples.
wenzelm@30845

* Simplifier: simproc for let expressions now unfolds if bound
wenzelm@30845
   848
variable occurs at most once in let expression body.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   849
wenzelm@30845
   850
* Method "arith": Linear arithmetic now ignores all inequalities when
wenzelm@30845
   851
fast_arith_neq_limit is exceeded, instead of giving up entirely.
wenzelm@30845
   852
wenzelm@30845
   853
* New attribute "arith" for facts that should always be used
wenzelm@30845
   854
automatically by arithmetic. It is intended to be used locally in
wenzelm@30845
   855
proofs, e.g.
wenzelm@30845

* New classes "top" and "bot" with corresponding operations "top" and
wenzelm@30845
   862
"bot" in theory Orderings; instantiation of class "complete_lattice"
wenzelm@30845
   863
requires instantiation of classes "top" and "bot".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   864
wenzelm@30845
   865
* Changed definition lemma "less_fun_def" in order to provide an
wenzelm@30845
   866
instance for preorders on functions; use lemma "less_le" instead.
wenzelm@30845
   867
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   868
wenzelm@30845
   869
* Theory Orderings: class "wellorder" moved here, with explicit
wenzelm@30845
   870
induction rule "less_induct" as assumption.  For instantiation of
wenzelm@30845
   871
"wellorder" by means of predicate "wf", use rule wf_wellorderI.
wenzelm@30845
   872
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   873
wenzelm@30845
   874
* Theory Orderings: added class "preorder" as superclass of "order".
wenzelm@27793
   875
INCOMPATIBILITY: Instantiation proofs for order, linorder
wenzelm@27793
   876
etc. slightly changed.  Some theorems named order_class.* now named
wenzelm@27793
   877
preorder_class.*.
wenzelm@27793
   878
wenzelm@30845
   879
* Theory Relation: renamed "refl" to "refl_on", "reflexive" to "refl,
wenzelm@30845
   880
"diag" to "Id_on".
wenzelm@30845
   881
wenzelm@30845
   882
* Theory Finite_Set: added a new fold combinator of type
wenzelm@30845
   883
nipkow@28855
   884
  ('a => 'b => 'b) => 'b => 'a set => 'b
wenzelm@30845
   885
wenzelm@30845
   886
Occasionally this is more convenient than the old fold combinator
wenzelm@30845
   887
which is now defined in terms of the new one and renamed to
wenzelm@30845
   888
fold_image.
wenzelm@30845
   889
wenzelm@30845
   890
* Theories Ring_and_Field and OrderedGroup: The lemmas "group_simps"
wenzelm@30845
   891
and "ring_simps" have been replaced by "algebra_simps" (which can be
wenzelm@30845
   892
extended with further lemmas!).  At the moment both still exist but
wenzelm@30845
   893
the former will disappear at some point.
wenzelm@30845
   894
wenzelm@30845
   895
* Theory Power: Lemma power_Suc is now declared as a simp rule in
wenzelm@30845
   896
class recpower.  Type-specific simp rules for various recpower types
wenzelm@30845
   897
have been removed.  INCOMPATIBILITY, rename old lemmas as follows:

   908
* Theories Ring_and_Field and Divides: Definition of "op dvd" has been
wenzelm@27793
   909
moved to separate class dvd in Ring_and_Field; a couple of lemmas on
wenzelm@27793
   910
dvd has been generalized to class comm_semiring_1.  Likewise a bunch
wenzelm@27793
   911
of lemmas from Divides has been generalized from nat to class
wenzelm@27793
   912
semiring_div.  INCOMPATIBILITY.  This involves the following theorem
wenzelm@27793
   913
renames resulting from duplicate elimination:

wenzelm@30845
   979
univariate polynomials with coefficients of type 'a.  In addition to
wenzelm@30845
   980
the standard ring operations, it also supports div and mod.  Code

generation is also supported, using list-style constructors.

* Theory Library/Inner_Product defines a class of real_inner for real
wenzelm@30845
   984
inner product spaces, with an overloaded operation inner :: 'a => 'a
wenzelm@30845
   985
=> real.  Class real_inner is a subclass of real_normed_vector from
wenzelm@30845
   986
theory RealVector.
wenzelm@30845
   987
wenzelm@30845
   988
* Theory Library/Product_Vector provides instances for the product

type 'a * 'b of several classes from RealVector and Inner_Product.
wenzelm@30845
   990

wenzelm@30845
   994
addition to the field operations, numerals and case syntax are also
wenzelm@30845
   995
supported.
wenzelm@30845

wenzelm@30845
   997

   998
first diagonalization argument.
wenzelm@30845
   999
wenzelm@30845
  1000
* Theory Library/GCD: Curried operations gcd, lcm (for nat) and zgcd,
wenzelm@27599
  1001
zlcm (for int); carried together from various gcd/lcm developements in
wenzelm@30845
  1002
the HOL Distribution.  Constants zgcd and zlcm replace former igcd and
wenzelm@30845
  1003
ilcm; corresponding theorems renamed accordingly.  INCOMPATIBILITY,
wenzelm@30845
  1004
may recover tupled syntax as follows:
haftmann@27556
  1005
haftmann@27556
  1006
    hide (open) const gcd
haftmann@27556
  1007

      "gcd == (%(a, b). GCD.gcd a b)"
haftmann@27556
  1009
    notation (output)

  1010
      GCD.gcd ("gcd '(_, _')")
haftmann@27556
  1011
wenzelm@30845
  1012
The same works for lcm, zgcd, zlcm.
wenzelm@30845
  1013
wenzelm@30845
  1014
* Theory Library/Nat_Infinity: added addition, numeral syntax and more
wenzelm@30845
  1015
instantiations for algebraic structures.  Removed some duplicate
wenzelm@30845
  1016
theorems.  Changes in simp rules.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
  1017
wenzelm@30845
  1018
* ML antiquotation @{code} takes a constant as argument and generates
haftmann@27651
  1019
corresponding code in background and inserts name of the corresponding
haftmann@27651
  1020
resulting ML value/function/datatype constructor binding in place.
haftmann@27651
  1021
All occurrences of @{code} with a single ML block are generated
haftmann@27651
  1022
simultaneously.  Provides a generic and safe interface for
wenzelm@30845
  1023
instrumentalizing code generation.  See
wenzelm@30845
  1024
src/HOL/Decision_Procs/Ferrack.thy for a more ambitious application.
wenzelm@30845
  1025
In future you ought to refrain from ad-hoc compiling generated SML
wenzelm@30845
  1026
code on the ML toplevel.  Note that (for technical reasons) @{code}
wenzelm@30845
  1027
cannot refer to constants for which user-defined serializations are
wenzelm@30845
  1028
set.  Refer to the corresponding ML counterpart directly in that
wenzelm@30845
  1029
cases.

represented as datatype.  The characteristic theorems have to be
wenzelm@27122
  1034
proven.  INCOMPATIBILITY.  Also observe that the following theorems

* High-level support for concurrent ML programming, see
wenzelm@29161
  1131
src/Pure/Cuncurrent.  The data-oriented model of "future values" is
wenzelm@29161
  1132
particularly convenient to organize independent functional
wenzelm@29161
  1133
computations.  The concept of "synchronized variables" provides a
wenzelm@29161
  1134
higher-order interface for components with shared state, avoiding the
wenzelm@30845
  1135
delicate details of mutexes and condition variables.  (Requires

* ML bindings produced via Isar commands are stored within the Isar
wenzelm@30845

wenzelm@30845
  1140
become thread-safe and work with undo as expected (concerning
wenzelm@30845
  1141
top-level bindings, not side-effects on global references).
wenzelm@30845

wenzelm@30845
  1146
* Command 'ML_prf' is analogous to 'ML' but works within a proof
wenzelm@30845
  1147
context.  Top-level ML bindings are stored within the proof context in
wenzelm@30845
  1148
a purely sequential fashion, disregarding the nested proof structure.
wenzelm@30845
  1149
ML bindings introduced by 'ML_prf' are discarded at the end of the

wenzelm@29161
  1151
wenzelm@30530

wenzelm@30845
  1153

wenzelm@30547
  1154
'method_setup'.  INCOMPATIBILITY for 'method_setup', need to simplify

  1157
wenzelm@28294
  1158
* Simplified ML oracle interface Thm.add_oracle promotes 'a -> cterm
wenzelm@28294
  1159
to 'a -> thm, while results are always tagged with an authentic oracle
wenzelm@28294
  1160
name.  The Isar command 'oracle' is now polymorphic, no argument type
wenzelm@28294
  1161
is specified.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to simplify existing oracle code
wenzelm@28294
  1162
accordingly.  Note that extra performance may be gained by producing
wenzelm@28294
  1163
the cterm carefully, avoiding slow Thm.cterm_of.

wenzelm@30845
  1166
ThyOutput.antiquotation, ThyOutput.output, and optionally
wenzelm@30845
  1167
ThyOutput.maybe_pretty_source.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to simplify user

wenzelm@28099
  1170
wenzelm@30395
  1171
* More systematic treatment of long names, abstract name bindings, and
wenzelm@30395
  1172
name space operations.  Basic operations on qualified names have been
wenzelm@30399
  1173
move from structure NameSpace to Long_Name, e.g. Long_Name.base_name,
wenzelm@30395
  1174
Long_Name.append.  Old type bstring has been mostly replaced by
wenzelm@30395
  1175
abstract type binding (see structure Binding), which supports precise
wenzelm@30845
  1176
qualification by packages and local theory targets, as well as proper
wenzelm@30845
  1177
tracking of source positions.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to wrap old
wenzelm@30845
  1178
bstring values into Binding.name, or better pass through abstract

  1193
* Disposed old declarations, tactics, tactic combinators that refer to
wenzelm@30609
  1194
the simpset or claset of an implicit theory (such as Addsimps,
wenzelm@30609
  1195
Simp_tac, SIMPSET).  INCOMPATIBILITY, should use @{simpset} etc. in

  1199
* Rules and tactics that read instantiations (read_instantiate,
wenzelm@30845
  1200
res_inst_tac, thin_tac, subgoal_tac etc.) now demand a proper proof
wenzelm@30845

wenzelm@30845
  1202
the variables are specified as plain indexnames, not string encodings

berghofe@26681
  1289
(1) unused_thms

wenzelm@26874
  1304
to belong to the same "group", meaning that if at least one theorem in
wenzelm@26718
  1305
this group is used, the other theorems in the same group are no longer
wenzelm@26718
  1306
reported as unused.  Moreover, if all theorems in the group are

* More flexible generation of measure functions for termination
wenzelm@27067
  1403
proofs: Measure functions can be declared by proving a rule of the
wenzelm@27067
  1404
form "is_measure f" and giving it the [measure_function] attribute.
wenzelm@27067
  1405
The "is_measure" predicate is logically meaningless (always true), and
wenzelm@27067
  1406
just guides the heuristic.  To find suitable measure functions, the
wenzelm@27067
  1407
termination prover sets up the goal "is_measure ?f" of the appropriate
wenzelm@27067
  1408
type and generates all solutions by prolog-style backwards proof using
wenzelm@27067
  1409
the declared rules.
wenzelm@27067
  1410
wenzelm@27067
  1411
This setup also deals with rules like 
wenzelm@27067
  1412
wenzelm@27067
  1413
  "is_measure f ==> is_measure (list_size f)"
wenzelm@27067
  1414
wenzelm@27067
  1415
which accommodates nested datatypes that recurse through lists.

*** ZF ***
krauss@26197
  1592
wenzelm@26874
  1593
* Renamed some theories to allow to loading both ZF and HOL in the
wenzelm@26874
  1594
same session:
wenzelm@26874
  1595
wenzelm@26874
  1596
  Datatype  -> Datatype_ZF
wenzelm@26874
  1597
  Inductive -> Inductive_ZF

  1602
  Main      -> Main_ZF
wenzelm@26874
  1603
wenzelm@26874
  1604
INCOMPATIBILITY: ZF theories that import individual theories below
wenzelm@26874
  1605
Main might need to be adapted.  Regular theory Main is still
wenzelm@26874
  1606
available, as trivial extension of Main_ZF.

*** ML ***
wenzelm@25737
  1610
wenzelm@27067
  1611
* ML within Isar: antiquotation @{const name} or @{const
wenzelm@27067
  1612
name(typargs)} produces statically-checked Const term.
wenzelm@27067
  1613
wenzelm@26401
  1614
* Functor NamedThmsFun: data is available to the user as dynamic fact
wenzelm@26724
  1615
(of the same name).  Removed obsolete print command.
wenzelm@26401
  1616
wenzelm@27067
  1617
* Removed obsolete "use_legacy_bindings" function.
wenzelm@26188
  1618
wenzelm@25737
  1619
* The ``print mode'' is now a thread-local value derived from a global
wenzelm@25737
  1620
template (the former print_mode reference), thus access becomes
wenzelm@25737
  1621
non-critical.  The global print_mode reference is for session
wenzelm@25737
  1622
management only; user-code should use print_mode_value,
wenzelm@25737
  1623
print_mode_active, PrintMode.setmp etc.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@25737
  1624
wenzelm@26874
  1625
* Functions system/system_out provide a robust way to invoke external
wenzelm@29161
  1626
shell commands, with propagation of interrupts (requires Poly/ML
wenzelm@29161
  1627
5.2.1).  Do not use OS.Process.system etc. from the basis library!

in accordance with Proof General 3.7, which prefers GNU emacs.
wenzelm@25970

setting, the default settings attempt to locate "ledit" and "rlwrap".
wenzelm@25626
  1638
wenzelm@25651
  1639

wenzelm@25651
  1640
"javapath" function defined in Isabelle process environment.
wenzelm@25651
  1641
wenzelm@27067
  1642
* YXML notation provides a simple and efficient alternative to
wenzelm@27067
  1643
standard XML transfer syntax.  See src/Pure/General/yxml.ML and
wenzelm@27067
  1644
isatool yxml as described in the Isabelle system manual.
wenzelm@25651
  1645
wenzelm@25652
  1646
* JVM class isabelle.IsabelleProcess (located in Isabelle/lib/classes)
wenzelm@25651
  1647
provides general wrapper for managing an Isabelle process in a robust
wenzelm@25651
  1648
fashion, with ``cooked'' output from stdin/stderr.

based on Isabelle/JVM process wrapper (see Isabelle/lib/classes).
wenzelm@25855
  1652
wenzelm@27067
  1653
* Removed obsolete THIS_IS_ISABELLE_BUILD feature.  NB: the documented
wenzelm@27067
  1654
way of changing the user's settings is via
wenzelm@27067
  1655
ISABELLE_HOME_USER/etc/settings, which is a fully featured bash
wenzelm@27067
  1656
script.
wenzelm@27067

wenzelm@27067
  1658
* Multithreading.max_threads := 0 refers to the number of actual CPU
wenzelm@27067
  1659
cores of the underlying machine, which is a good starting point for
wenzelm@27067
  1660
optimal performance tuning.  The corresponding usedir option -M allows
wenzelm@27067
  1661
"max" as an alias for "0".  WARNING: does not work on certain versions
wenzelm@27067
  1662
of Mac OS (with Poly/ML 5.1).
wenzelm@27067
  1663
wenzelm@27067
  1664
* isabelle-process: non-ML sessions are run with "nice", to reduce the
wenzelm@27067
  1665

wenzelm@17754
  1673
*** General ***
wenzelm@17754
  1674
wenzelm@22826
  1675
* More uniform information about legacy features, notably a
wenzelm@22826
  1676
warning/error of "Legacy feature: ...", depending on the state of the
wenzelm@23367
  1677
tolerate_legacy_features flag (default true). FUTURE INCOMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@23367
  1678
legacy features will disappear eventually.
wenzelm@22826
  1679
wenzelm@17918
  1680
* Theory syntax: the header format ``theory A = B + C:'' has been
wenzelm@17918
  1681
discontinued in favour of ``theory A imports B C begin''.  Use isatool
wenzelm@17918
  1682
fixheaders to convert existing theory files.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17918
  1683
wenzelm@17918
  1684
* Theory syntax: the old non-Isar theory file format has been
wenzelm@17918
  1685
discontinued altogether.  Note that ML proof scripts may still be used
wenzelm@17918
  1686
with Isar theories; migration is usually quite simple with the ML
wenzelm@17918
  1687
function use_legacy_bindings.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17918
  1688
wenzelm@22871
  1689
* Theory syntax: some popular names (e.g. 'class', 'declaration',
wenzelm@22871
  1690
'fun', 'help', 'if') are now keywords.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use double
wenzelm@22871
  1691
quotes.
wenzelm@19814
  1692
wenzelm@23888
  1693
* Theory loader: be more serious about observing the static theory
wenzelm@23888
  1694
header specifications (including optional directories), but not the
wenzelm@24172
  1695
accidental file locations of previously successful loads.  The strict
wenzelm@24172
  1696
update policy of former update_thy is now already performed by
wenzelm@24172
  1697
use_thy, so the former has been removed; use_thys updates several
wenzelm@24172
  1698
theories simultaneously, just as 'imports' within a theory header
wenzelm@24172
  1699
specification, but without merging the results.  Potential
wenzelm@24172
  1700
INCOMPATIBILITY: may need to refine theory headers and commands
wenzelm@24172
  1701
ROOT.ML which depend on load order.
wenzelm@23888
  1702
wenzelm@23888
  1703
* Theory loader: optional support for content-based file
wenzelm@23888
  1704
identification, instead of the traditional scheme of full physical
wenzelm@23889
  1705
path plus date stamp; configured by the ISABELLE_FILE_IDENT setting
wenzelm@23888
  1706
(cf. the system manual).  The new scheme allows to work with
wenzelm@23888
  1707
non-finished theories in persistent session images, such that source
wenzelm@23888
  1708
files may be moved later on without requiring reloads.
wenzelm@23888
  1709
wenzelm@24187
  1710
* Theory loader: old-style ML proof scripts being *attached* to a thy
wenzelm@24187
  1711
file (with the same base name as the theory) are considered a legacy
wenzelm@24800
  1712
feature, which will disappear eventually. Even now, the theory loader
wenzelm@24800
  1713
no longer maintains dependencies on such files.
wenzelm@24800
  1714
wenzelm@24800
  1715
* Syntax: the scope for resolving ambiguities via type-inference is
wenzelm@24800
  1716
now limited to individual terms, instead of whole simultaneous
wenzelm@24234
  1717
specifications as before. This greatly reduces the complexity of the
wenzelm@24234
  1718
syntax module and improves flexibility by separating parsing and
wenzelm@24234
  1719
type-checking. INCOMPATIBILITY: additional type-constraints (explicit
wenzelm@24234
  1720
'fixes' etc.) are required in rare situations.
wenzelm@24234
  1721
wenzelm@25034
  1722
* Syntax: constants introduced by new-style packages ('definition',
wenzelm@25034
  1723
'abbreviation' etc.) are passed through the syntax module in
wenzelm@25034
  1724
``authentic mode''. This means that associated mixfix annotations
wenzelm@25034
  1725
really stick to such constants, independently of potential name space
wenzelm@25034
  1726
ambiguities introduced later on. INCOMPATIBILITY: constants in parse
wenzelm@25034
  1727
trees are represented slightly differently, may need to adapt syntax
wenzelm@25034
  1728
translations accordingly. Use CONST marker in 'translations' and
wenzelm@25034
  1729
@{const_syntax} antiquotation in 'parse_translation' etc.
wenzelm@25034
  1730
wenzelm@17981
  1731
* Legacy goal package: reduced interface to the bare minimum required
wenzelm@17981
  1732
to keep existing proof scripts running.  Most other user-level
wenzelm@17981
  1733
functions are now part of the OldGoals structure, which is *not* open
wenzelm@17981
  1734
by default (consider isatool expandshort before open OldGoals).
wenzelm@17981
  1735
Removed top_sg, prin, printyp, pprint_term/typ altogether, because
wenzelm@17981
  1736
these tend to cause confusion about the actual goal (!) context being
wenzelm@17981
  1737
used here, which is not necessarily the same as the_context().
wenzelm@17918
  1738
wenzelm@23379
  1739
* Command 'find_theorems': supports "*" wild-card in "name:"
wenzelm@23379
  1740
criterion; "with_dups" option.  Certain ProofGeneral versions might
wenzelm@23379
  1741
support a specific search form (see ProofGeneral/CHANGES).
webertj@22965
  1742
wenzelm@20370
  1743
* The ``prems limit'' option (cf. ProofContext.prems_limit) is now -1
wenzelm@20370
  1744
by default, which means that "prems" (and also "fixed variables") are
wenzelm@20370
  1745
suppressed from proof state output.  Note that the ProofGeneral
wenzelm@20370
  1746
settings mechanism allows to change and save options persistently, but
wenzelm@20370
  1747
older versions of Isabelle will fail to start up if a negative prems
wenzelm@20370
  1748
limit is imposed.
wenzelm@20370
  1749
wenzelm@21308
  1750
* Local theory targets may be specified by non-nested blocks of
wenzelm@21308
  1751
``context/locale/class ... begin'' followed by ``end''.  The body may
wenzelm@21308
  1752
contain definitions, theorems etc., including any derived mechanism
wenzelm@21308
  1753
that has been implemented on top of these primitives.  This concept
wenzelm@21308
  1754
generalizes the existing ``theorem (in ...)'' towards more versatility
wenzelm@21308
  1755
and scalability.
wenzelm@21308
  1756
wenzelm@21960
  1757
* Proof General interface: proper undo of final 'end' command;
wenzelm@21960
  1758
discontinued Isabelle/classic mode (ML proof scripts).

*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@17865
  1762
wenzelm@21717
  1763
* Added antiquotation @{theory name} which prints the given name,
wenzelm@21717
  1764
after checking that it refers to a valid ancestor theory in the
wenzelm@21717
  1765
current context.
haftmann@21339
  1766
wenzelm@17869
  1767
* Added antiquotations @{ML_type text} and @{ML_struct text} which
wenzelm@17869
  1768
check the given source text as ML type/structure, printing verbatim.
wenzelm@17865
  1769
wenzelm@21717
  1770
* Added antiquotation @{abbrev "c args"} which prints the abbreviation
wenzelm@21717
  1771
"c args == rhs" given in the current context.  (Any number of
wenzelm@21735
  1772
arguments may be given on the LHS.)

wenzelm@24800
  1777
* The 'class' package offers a combination of axclass and locale to
wenzelm@25129
  1778
achieve Haskell-like type classes in Isabelle.  Definitions and
wenzelm@25129
  1779
theorems within a class context produce both relative results (with
wenzelm@25129
  1780
implicit parameters according to the locale context), and polymorphic
wenzelm@25129
  1781
constants with qualified polymorphism (according to the class
wenzelm@25129
  1782
context).  Within the body context of a 'class' target, a separate
wenzelm@25129
  1783
syntax layer ("user space type system") takes care of converting
wenzelm@25129
  1784
between global polymorphic consts and internal locale representation.

  1790
sketch:
haftmann@20188
  1791
haftmann@20188
  1792
    internal compilation:
haftmann@25199
  1793
        export_code <list of constants (term syntax)> in SML
haftmann@20453
  1794
    writing SML code to a file:

Theorem attributs for selecting and transforming function equations theorems:
haftmann@20453
  1807
haftmann@22845
  1808
    [code fun]:        select a theorem as function equation for a specific constant
haftmann@22845
  1809
    [code fun del]:    deselect a theorem as function equation for a specific constant
haftmann@22845
  1810
    [code inline]:     select an equation theorem for unfolding (inlining) in place
haftmann@22845
  1811
    [code inline del]: deselect an equation theorem for unfolding (inlining) in place
haftmann@20453
  1812
haftmann@22735
  1813
User-defined serializations (target in {SML, OCaml, Haskell}):
haftmann@20453
  1814
haftmann@20453
  1815
    code_const <and-list of constants (term syntax)>
haftmann@20453
  1816
      {(target) <and-list of const target syntax>}+
haftmann@20453
  1817
haftmann@20453
  1818
    code_type <and-list of type constructors>
haftmann@20453
  1819
      {(target) <and-list of type target syntax>}+
haftmann@20453
  1820
haftmann@20453
  1821
    code_instance <and-list of instances>
haftmann@20453
  1822
      {(target)}+
haftmann@20453
  1823
        where instance ::= <type constructor> :: <class>

haftmann@20453
  1827
        where class target syntax ::= <class name> {where {<classop> == <target syntax>}+}?
haftmann@20453
  1828
haftmann@25199
  1829
code_instance and code_class only are effective to target Haskell.

For example usage see src/HOL/ex/Codegenerator.thy and
wenzelm@25177

wenzelm@24800

generation from Isabelle/HOL theories is available via "isatool doc

haftmann@20188
  1835
wenzelm@25129
  1836
* Code generator: consts in 'consts_code' Isar commands are now
wenzelm@25129
  1837
referred to by usual term syntax (including optional type
wenzelm@25129
  1838
annotations).
wenzelm@25129
  1839
wenzelm@19254
  1840
* Command 'no_translations' removes translation rules from theory
wenzelm@19254
  1841
syntax.
wenzelm@19254
  1842
wenzelm@19625
  1843
* Overloaded definitions are now actually checked for acyclic
wenzelm@19714
  1844
dependencies.  The overloading scheme is slightly more general than
wenzelm@19714
  1845
that of Haskell98, although Isabelle does not demand an exact
wenzelm@19714
  1846
correspondence to type class and instance declarations.
wenzelm@19714
  1847
INCOMPATIBILITY, use ``defs (unchecked overloaded)'' to admit more
wenzelm@19714
  1848
exotic versions of overloading -- at the discretion of the user!
wenzelm@19711
  1849
wenzelm@19711
  1850
Polymorphic constants are represented via type arguments, i.e. the
wenzelm@19711
  1851
instantiation that matches an instance against the most general
wenzelm@19711
  1852
declaration given in the signature.  For example, with the declaration
wenzelm@19711
  1853
c :: 'a => 'a => 'a, an instance c :: nat => nat => nat is represented
wenzelm@19711
  1854
as c(nat).  Overloading is essentially simultaneous structural
wenzelm@19711
  1855
recursion over such type arguments.  Incomplete specification patterns
wenzelm@19714
  1856
impose global constraints on all occurrences, e.g. c('a * 'a) on the
wenzelm@19715
  1857
LHS means that more general c('a * 'b) will be disallowed on any RHS.
wenzelm@19714
  1858
Command 'print_theory' outputs the normalized system of recursive
wenzelm@19714
  1859
equations, see section "definitions".
wenzelm@19625
  1860
wenzelm@24086
  1861
* Configuration options are maintained within the theory or proof
wenzelm@24086
  1862
context (with name and type bool/int/string), providing a very simple
wenzelm@24086
  1863
interface to a poor-man's version of general context data.  Tools may
wenzelm@24110
  1864
declare options in ML (e.g. using Attrib.config_int) and then refer to
wenzelm@24110
  1865
these values using Config.get etc.  Users may change options via an
wenzelm@24110
  1866
associated attribute of the same name.  This form of context
wenzelm@24110
  1867
declaration works particularly well with commands 'declare' or
wenzelm@24110
  1868
'using', for example ``declare [[foo = 42]]''.  Thus it has become
wenzelm@24110
  1869
very easy to avoid global references, which would not observe Isar
wenzelm@24110
  1870
toplevel undo/redo and fail to work with multithreading.
wenzelm@24086
  1871
wenzelm@24172
  1872
Various global ML references of Pure and HOL have been turned into
wenzelm@24172

wenzelm@24086
  1885
* Named collections of theorems may be easily installed as context
wenzelm@24800
  1886
data using the functor NamedThmsFun (see also
wenzelm@24086
  1887
src/Pure/Tools/named_thms.ML).  The user may add or delete facts via
wenzelm@24110
  1888
attributes; there is also a toplevel print command.  This facility is
wenzelm@24110
  1889
just a common case of general context data, which is the preferred way
wenzelm@24110
  1890
for anything more complex than just a list of facts in canonical
wenzelm@24110
  1891
order.
wenzelm@24086
  1892
wenzelm@24032
  1893
* Isar: command 'declaration' augments a local theory by generic
wenzelm@24032
  1894
declaration functions written in ML.  This enables arbitrary content
wenzelm@24032
  1895
being added to the context, depending on a morphism that tells the
wenzelm@24032
  1896
difference of the original declaration context wrt. the application
wenzelm@24032
  1897
context encountered later on.
wenzelm@24032
  1898
wenzelm@24032
  1899
* Isar: proper interfaces for simplification procedures.  Command
wenzelm@24032
  1900
'simproc_setup' declares named simprocs (with match patterns, and body
wenzelm@24032
  1901
text in ML).  Attribute "simproc" adds/deletes simprocs in the current
wenzelm@24032
  1902
context.  ML antiquotation @{simproc name} retrieves named simprocs.
wenzelm@24032
  1903
wenzelm@24032
  1904
* Isar: an extra pair of brackets around attribute declarations
wenzelm@24032
  1905
abbreviates a theorem reference involving an internal dummy fact,
wenzelm@24032
  1906
which will be ignored later --- only the effect of the attribute on
wenzelm@24032
  1907
the background context will persist.  This form of in-place
wenzelm@24032
  1908
declarations is particularly useful with commands like 'declare' and
wenzelm@24032
  1909
'using', for example ``have A using [[simproc a]] by simp''.
wenzelm@24032
  1910
wenzelm@23369
  1911
* Isar: method "assumption" (and implicit closing of subproofs) now
wenzelm@23369
  1912
takes simple non-atomic goal assumptions into account: after applying
wenzelm@23369
  1913
an assumption as a rule the resulting subgoals are solved by atomic
wenzelm@23369
  1914
assumption steps.  This is particularly useful to finish 'obtain'
wenzelm@23369
  1915
goals, such as "!!x. (!!x. P x ==> thesis) ==> P x ==> thesis",
wenzelm@23369
  1916
without referring to the original premise "!!x. P x ==> thesis" in the
wenzelm@23369
  1917
Isar proof context.  POTENTIAL INCOMPATIBILITY: method "assumption" is
wenzelm@23369
  1918
more permissive.
wenzelm@23369
  1919
wenzelm@23369
  1920
* Isar: implicit use of prems from the Isar proof context is
wenzelm@23369
  1921
considered a legacy feature.  Common applications like ``have A .''
wenzelm@23369
  1922
may be replaced by ``have A by fact'' or ``note `A`''.  In general,
wenzelm@23369
  1923
referencing facts explicitly here improves readability and
wenzelm@23369
  1924
maintainability of proof texts.
wenzelm@23369
  1925
wenzelm@17865
  1926
* Isar: improper proof element 'guess' is like 'obtain', but derives
wenzelm@17865
  1927
the obtained context from the course of reasoning!  For example:
wenzelm@17865
  1928
wenzelm@17865
  1929
  assume "EX x y. A x & B y"   -- "any previous fact"
wenzelm@17865
  1930
  then guess x and y by clarify
wenzelm@17865
  1931
wenzelm@17865
  1932
This technique is potentially adventurous, depending on the facts and
wenzelm@17865
  1933
proof tools being involved here.
wenzelm@17865
  1934
wenzelm@18020
  1935
* Isar: known facts from the proof context may be specified as literal
wenzelm@18020
  1936
propositions, using ASCII back-quote syntax.  This works wherever
wenzelm@18020
  1937
named facts used to be allowed so far, in proof commands, proof
wenzelm@18020
  1938
methods, attributes etc.  Literal facts are retrieved from the context
wenzelm@18020
  1939
according to unification of type and term parameters.  For example,
wenzelm@18020
  1940
provided that "A" and "A ==> B" and "!!x. P x ==> Q x" are known
wenzelm@18020
  1941
theorems in the current context, then these are valid literal facts:
wenzelm@18020
  1942
`A` and `A ==> B` and `!!x. P x ==> Q x" as well as `P a ==> Q a` etc.
wenzelm@18020
  1943
wenzelm@18020
  1944
There is also a proof method "fact" which does the same composition
wenzelm@18044
  1945
for explicit goal states, e.g. the following proof texts coincide with
wenzelm@18044
  1946
certain special cases of literal facts:
wenzelm@18020
  1947
wenzelm@18020
  1948
  have "A" by fact                 ==  note `A`
wenzelm@18020
  1949
  have "A ==> B" by fact           ==  note `A ==> B`
wenzelm@18020
  1950
  have "!!x. P x ==> Q x" by fact  ==  note `!!x. P x ==> Q x`
wenzelm@18020
  1951
  have "P a ==> Q a" by fact       ==  note `P a ==> Q a`
wenzelm@18020
  1952
wenzelm@20118
  1953
* Isar: ":" (colon) is no longer a symbolic identifier character in
wenzelm@20118
  1954
outer syntax.  Thus symbolic identifiers may be used without
wenzelm@20118
  1955
additional white space in declarations like this: ``assume *: A''.
wenzelm@20118
  1956
wenzelm@20013
  1957
* Isar: 'print_facts' prints all local facts of the current context,
wenzelm@20013
  1958
both named and unnamed ones.
wenzelm@20013
  1959
wenzelm@18308
  1960
* Isar: 'def' now admits simultaneous definitions, e.g.:
wenzelm@18308
  1961
wenzelm@18308
  1962
  def x == "t" and y == "u"
wenzelm@18308
  1963
wenzelm@18540
  1964
* Isar: added command 'unfolding', which is structurally similar to
wenzelm@18540
  1965
'using', but affects both the goal state and facts by unfolding given
wenzelm@18815
  1966
rewrite rules.  Thus many occurrences of the 'unfold' method or
wenzelm@18540
  1967
'unfolded' attribute may be replaced by first-class proof text.
wenzelm@18540
  1968
wenzelm@18815
  1969
* Isar: methods 'unfold' / 'fold', attributes 'unfolded' / 'folded',
wenzelm@18815
  1970
and command 'unfolding' now all support object-level equalities
wenzelm@18815
  1971
(potentially conditional).  The underlying notion of rewrite rule is
wenzelm@18815
  1972
analogous to the 'rule_format' attribute, but *not* that of the
wenzelm@18815
  1973
Simplifier (which is usually more generous).
wenzelm@18815
  1974
kleing@24238
  1975
* Isar: the new attribute [rotated n] (default n = 1) rotates the
kleing@24238
  1976
premises of a theorem by n. Useful in conjunction with drule.
kleing@24238
  1977
wenzelm@19220
  1978
* Isar: the goal restriction operator [N] (default N = 1) evaluates a
wenzelm@19220
  1979
method expression within a sandbox consisting of the first N
wenzelm@19240
  1980
sub-goals, which need to exist.  For example, ``simp_all [3]''
wenzelm@19240
  1981
simplifies the first three sub-goals, while (rule foo, simp_all)[]
wenzelm@19240
  1982
simplifies all new goals that emerge from applying rule foo to the
wenzelm@19240
  1983
originally first one.
wenzelm@19220
  1984
wenzelm@19814
  1985
* Isar: schematic goals are no longer restricted to higher-order
wenzelm@19814
  1986
patterns; e.g. ``lemma "?P(?x)" by (rule TrueI)'' now works as
wenzelm@19814
  1987
expected.
wenzelm@19814
  1988
wenzelm@18901
  1989
* Isar: the conclusion of a long theorem statement is now either
wenzelm@18901
  1990
'shows' (a simultaneous conjunction, as before), or 'obtains'
wenzelm@18901
  1991
(essentially a disjunction of cases with local parameters and
wenzelm@18901
  1992
assumptions).  The latter allows to express general elimination rules
wenzelm@18910
  1993
adequately; in this notation common elimination rules look like this:
wenzelm@18901
  1994
wenzelm@18901
  1995
  lemma exE:    -- "EX x. P x ==> (!!x. P x ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1996
    assumes "EX x. P x"
wenzelm@18901
  1997
    obtains x where "P x"
wenzelm@18901
  1998
wenzelm@18901
  1999
  lemma conjE:  -- "A & B ==> (A ==> B ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  2000
    assumes "A & B"
wenzelm@18901
  2001
    obtains A and B
wenzelm@18901
  2002
wenzelm@18901
  2003
  lemma disjE:  -- "A | B ==> (A ==> thesis) ==> (B ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  2004
    assumes "A | B"
wenzelm@18901
  2005
    obtains
wenzelm@18901
  2006
      A
wenzelm@18901
  2007
    | B
wenzelm@18901
  2008
wenzelm@18910
  2009
The subsequent classical rules even refer to the formal "thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  2010
explicitly:
wenzelm@18901
  2011
wenzelm@18901
  2012
  lemma classical:     -- "(~ thesis ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  2013
    obtains "~ thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  2014
wenzelm@18910
  2015
  lemma Peirce's_Law:  -- "((thesis ==> something) ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18910
  2016
    obtains "thesis ==> something"
wenzelm@18901
  2017
wenzelm@18901
  2018
The actual proof of an 'obtains' statement is analogous to that of the
wenzelm@18910
  2019
Isar proof element 'obtain', only that there may be several cases.
wenzelm@18910
  2020
Optional case names may be specified in parentheses; these will be
wenzelm@18910
  2021
available both in the present proof and as annotations in the
wenzelm@18910
  2022
resulting rule, for later use with the 'cases' method (cf. attribute
wenzelm@18910
  2023
case_names).
wenzelm@18901
  2024
wenzelm@21447
  2025
* Isar: the assumptions of a long theorem statement are available as
wenzelm@21447
  2026
"assms" fact in the proof context.  This is more appropriate than the
wenzelm@21447
  2027
(historical) "prems", which refers to all assumptions of the current
wenzelm@21447
  2028
context, including those from the target locale, proof body etc.
wenzelm@21447
  2029
wenzelm@19263
  2030
* Isar: 'print_statement' prints theorems from the current theory or
wenzelm@19263
  2031
proof context in long statement form, according to the syntax of a
wenzelm@19263
  2032
top-level lemma.
wenzelm@19263
  2033
wenzelm@18901
  2034
* Isar: 'obtain' takes an optional case name for the local context
wenzelm@18901
  2035
introduction rule (default "that").
wenzelm@18901
  2036
wenzelm@19587
  2037
* Isar: removed obsolete 'concl is' patterns.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use
wenzelm@19587
  2038
explicit (is "_ ==> ?foo") in the rare cases where this still happens
wenzelm@19587
  2039
to occur.
wenzelm@19587
  2040
wenzelm@19682
  2041
* Pure: syntax "CONST name" produces a fully internalized constant
wenzelm@19682
  2042
according to the current context.  This is particularly useful for
wenzelm@19682
  2043
syntax translations that should refer to internal constant
wenzelm@19682
  2044
representations independently of name spaces.
wenzelm@19682
  2045
wenzelm@21537
  2046
* Pure: syntax constant for foo (binder "FOO ") is called "foo_binder"
wenzelm@21537
  2047
instead of "FOO ". This allows multiple binder declarations to coexist
wenzelm@21537
  2048
in the same context.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@21537
  2049
wenzelm@21209
  2050
* Isar/locales: 'notation' provides a robust interface to the 'syntax'
wenzelm@21209
  2051
primitive that also works in a locale context (both for constants and
wenzelm@24950
  2052
fixed variables). Type declaration and internal syntactic representation
wenzelm@24950
  2053
of given constants retrieved from the context. Likewise, the
wenzelm@24950
  2054
'no_notation' command allows to remove given syntax annotations from the
wenzelm@24950
  2055
current context.
wenzelm@19682
  2056
wenzelm@19665
  2057
* Isar/locales: new derived specification elements 'axiomatization',
wenzelm@19665
  2058
'definition', 'abbreviation', which support type-inference, admit
wenzelm@19083
  2059
object-level specifications (equality, equivalence).  See also the
wenzelm@19083
  2060
isar-ref manual.  Examples:
wenzelm@19081
  2061
wenzelm@19665
  2062
  axiomatization
wenzelm@21595
  2063
    eq  (infix "===" 50) where
wenzelm@21595
  2064
    eq_refl: "x === x" and eq_subst: "x === y ==> P x ==> P y"
wenzelm@21595
  2065
wenzelm@21595
  2066
  definition "f x y = x + y + 1"
wenzelm@21595
  2067
  definition g where "g x = f x x"
wenzelm@19081
  2068
wenzelm@19363
  2069
  abbreviation
wenzelm@21595
  2070
    neq  (infix "=!=" 50) where
wenzelm@19363
  2071
    "x =!= y == ~ (x === y)"
wenzelm@19081
  2072
wenzelm@19083
  2073
These specifications may be also used in a locale context.  Then the
wenzelm@19083
  2074
constants being introduced depend on certain fixed parameters, and the
wenzelm@19083
  2075
constant name is qualified by the locale base name.  An internal
wenzelm@19083
  2076
abbreviation takes care for convenient input and output, making the
wenzelm@19088
  2077
parameters implicit and using the original short name.  See also
wenzelm@25177
  2078
src/HOL/ex/Abstract_NAT.thy for an example of deriving polymorphic
wenzelm@19083
  2079
entities from a monomorphic theory.
wenzelm@19083
  2080
wenzelm@19083
  2081
Presently, abbreviations are only available 'in' a target locale, but
wenzelm@19363
  2082
not inherited by general import expressions.  Also note that
wenzelm@19363
  2083
'abbreviation' may be used as a type-safe replacement for 'syntax' +
wenzelm@24735
  2084
'translations' in common applications.  The "no_abbrevs" print mode
wenzelm@24735
  2085
prevents folding of abbreviations in term output.
wenzelm@19084
  2086
wenzelm@19682
  2087
Concrete syntax is attached to specified constants in internal form,
wenzelm@19682
  2088
independently of name spaces.  The parse tree representation is
wenzelm@21209
  2089
slightly different -- use 'notation' instead of raw 'syntax', and
wenzelm@19682
  2090
'translations' with explicit "CONST" markup to accommodate this.
wenzelm@19665
  2091
wenzelm@24800
  2092
* Pure/Isar: unified syntax for new-style specification mechanisms
wenzelm@24800
  2093
(e.g.  'definition', 'abbreviation', or 'inductive' in HOL) admits
wenzelm@24800
  2094
full type inference and dummy patterns ("_").  For example:
wenzelm@24735
  2095
wenzelm@24735
  2096
  definition "K x _ = x"
wenzelm@24735
  2097
wenzelm@24738
  2098
  inductive conj for A B
wenzelm@24738
  2099
  where "A ==> B ==> conj A B"
wenzelm@24738
  2100
wenzelm@21735
  2101
* Pure: command 'print_abbrevs' prints all constant abbreviations of
wenzelm@21735
  2102
the current context.  Print mode "no_abbrevs" prevents inversion of
wenzelm@21735
  2103
abbreviations on output.
wenzelm@21735
  2104
wenzelm@24800
  2105
* Isar/locales: improved parameter handling: use of locales "var" and
wenzelm@24800
  2106
"struct" no longer necessary; - parameter renamings are no longer
wenzelm@24800
  2107
required to be injective.  For example, this allows to define
wenzelm@24800
  2108
endomorphisms as locale endom = homom mult mult h.
ballarin@19783
  2109
ballarin@19931
  2110
* Isar/locales: changed the way locales with predicates are defined.
ballarin@19931
  2111
Instead of accumulating the specification, the imported expression is
wenzelm@22126
  2112
now an interpretation.  INCOMPATIBILITY: different normal form of
wenzelm@22126
  2113
locale expressions.  In particular, in interpretations of locales with
wenzelm@22126
  2114
predicates, goals repesenting already interpreted fragments are not
wenzelm@22126
  2115
removed automatically.  Use methods `intro_locales' and
wenzelm@22126
  2116
`unfold_locales'; see below.

* Isar/locales: new methods `intro_locales' and `unfold_locales'
wenzelm@22126
  2119
provide backward reasoning on locales predicates.  The methods are
wenzelm@22126
  2120
aware of interpretations and discharge corresponding goals.
wenzelm@22126
  2121
`intro_locales' is less aggressive then `unfold_locales' and does not
wenzelm@22126
  2122
unfold predicates to assumptions.
ballarin@19931
  2123
ballarin@19931
  2124
* Isar/locales: the order in which locale fragments are accumulated
wenzelm@22126
  2125
has changed.  This enables to override declarations from fragments due
wenzelm@22126
  2126
to interpretations -- for example, unwanted simp rules.
ballarin@19931
  2127
ballarin@23920
  2128
* Isar/locales: interpretation in theories and proof contexts has been
ballarin@23920
  2129
extended.  One may now specify (and prove) equations, which are
ballarin@23920
  2130
unfolded in interpreted theorems.  This is useful for replacing
ballarin@23920
  2131
defined concepts (constants depending on locale parameters) by
ballarin@23920
  2132
concepts already existing in the target context.  Example:
ballarin@23920
  2133
ballarin@23920
  2134
  interpretation partial_order ["op <= :: [int, int] => bool"]
ballarin@23920
  2135
    where "partial_order.less (op <=) (x::int) y = (x < y)"
ballarin@23920
  2136
wenzelm@24800
  2137
Typically, the constant `partial_order.less' is created by a
wenzelm@24800
  2138
definition specification element in the context of locale
wenzelm@24800
  2139
partial_order.
wenzelm@24800
  2140
wenzelm@24859
  2141
* Method "induct": improved internal context management to support
wenzelm@24800
  2142
local fixes and defines on-the-fly. Thus explicit meta-level
wenzelm@24800
  2143
connectives !!  and ==> are rarely required anymore in inductive goals
wenzelm@24800
  2144
(using object-logic connectives for this purpose has been long
wenzelm@24800
  2145
obsolete anyway). Common proof patterns are explained in
wenzelm@25177
  2146
src/HOL/Induct/Common_Patterns.thy, see also
wenzelm@25177
  2147
src/HOL/Isar_examples/Puzzle.thy and src/HOL/Lambda for realistic
wenzelm@25177
  2148
examples.
wenzelm@24606
  2149
wenzelm@24859
  2150
* Method "induct": improved handling of simultaneous goals. Instead of
wenzelm@24606
  2151
introducing object-level conjunction, the statement is now split into
wenzelm@24606
  2152
several conclusions, while the corresponding symbolic cases are nested
wenzelm@24606
  2153
accordingly. INCOMPATIBILITY, proofs need to be structured explicitly,
wenzelm@25177
  2154
see src/HOL/Induct/Common_Patterns.thy, for example.
wenzelm@24606
  2155
wenzelm@24859
  2156
* Method "induct": mutual induction rules are now specified as a list
wenzelm@24800
  2157
of rule sharing the same induction cases. HOL packages usually provide
wenzelm@24606
  2158
foo_bar.inducts for mutually defined items foo and bar (e.g. inductive
wenzelm@24859
  2159
predicates/sets or datatypes). INCOMPATIBILITY, users need to specify
wenzelm@24859
  2160
mutual induction rules differently, i.e. like this:
wenzelm@18506
  2161
wenzelm@18506
  2162
  (induct rule: foo_bar.inducts)
wenzelm@18506
  2163
  (induct set: foo bar)
wenzelm@24859
  2164
  (induct pred: foo bar)
wenzelm@18506
  2165
  (induct type: foo bar)
wenzelm@18506
  2166
wenzelm@18506
  2167
The ML function ProjectRule.projections turns old-style rules into the
wenzelm@18506
  2168
new format.
wenzelm@18506
  2169
wenzelm@24859
  2170
* Method "coinduct": dual of induction, see
wenzelm@18399
  2171
src/HOL/Library/Coinductive_List.thy for various examples.
wenzelm@18399
  2172
wenzelm@24859
  2173
* Method "cases", "induct", "coinduct": the ``(open)'' option is
wenzelm@24859
  2174
considered a legacy feature.
wenzelm@24859
  2175
wenzelm@20919
  2176
* Attribute "symmetric" produces result with standardized schematic
wenzelm@20919
  2177
variables (index 0).  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@20919
  2178
wenzelm@22126
  2179
* Simplifier: by default the simplifier trace only shows top level
wenzelm@22126
  2180
rewrites now. That is, trace_simp_depth_limit is set to 1 by
wenzelm@22126
  2181
default. Thus there is less danger of being flooded by the trace. The
wenzelm@22126
  2182
trace indicates where parts have been suppressed.
nipkow@18674

wenzelm@18536
  2184
* Provers/classical: removed obsolete classical version of elim_format
wenzelm@18536
  2185
attribute; classical elim/dest rules are now treated uniformly when
wenzelm@18536
  2186
manipulating the claset.
wenzelm@18536
  2187
wenzelm@18694
  2188
* Provers/classical: stricter checks to ensure that supplied intro,
wenzelm@18694
  2189
dest and elim rules are well-formed; dest and elim rules must have at
wenzelm@18694
  2190
least one premise.
wenzelm@18694
  2191
wenzelm@18694
  2192
* Provers/classical: attributes dest/elim/intro take an optional
wenzelm@18695
  2193
weight argument for the rule (just as the Pure versions).  Weights are
wenzelm@18696
  2194
ignored by automated tools, but determine the search order of single
wenzelm@18694
  2195
rule steps.
paulson@18557
  2196
wenzelm@18536
  2197
* Syntax: input syntax now supports dummy variable binding "%_. b",
wenzelm@18536
  2198
where the body does not mention the bound variable.  Note that dummy
wenzelm@18536
  2199
patterns implicitly depend on their context of bounds, which makes
wenzelm@18536
  2200
"{_. _}" match any set comprehension as expected.  Potential
wenzelm@18536
  2201
INCOMPATIBILITY -- parse translations need to cope with syntactic
wenzelm@18536
  2202
constant "_idtdummy" in the binding position.
wenzelm@18536
  2203
wenzelm@18536
  2204
* Syntax: removed obsolete syntactic constant "_K" and its associated
wenzelm@18536
  2205
parse translation.  INCOMPATIBILITY -- use dummy abstraction instead,
wenzelm@18536
  2206
for example "A -> B" => "Pi A (%_. B)".
wenzelm@17779
  2207
wenzelm@20582
  2208
* Pure: 'class_deps' command visualizes the subclass relation, using
wenzelm@20582
  2209
the graph browser tool.
wenzelm@20582
  2210
wenzelm@24800
  2211
* Pure: 'print_theory' now suppresses certain internal declarations by
wenzelm@24800
  2212
default; use '!' option for full details.

wenzelm@25129
  2219

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

INCOMPATIBILITY.  Adaptions may be required in the following cases:
haftmann@25184
  2265
haftmann@25184
  2266
a) User-defined constants using any of the names "plus", "minus",
haftmann@25184
  2267
"times", "less" or "less_eq". The standard syntax translations for
haftmann@25184
  2268
"+", "-" and "*" may go wrong.  INCOMPATIBILITY: use more specific
haftmann@25184
  2269
names.
haftmann@25184
  2270
haftmann@25184
  2271
b) Variables named "plus", "minus", "times", "less", "less_eq"
haftmann@25184
  2272
INCOMPATIBILITY: use more specific names.
haftmann@25184
  2273
haftmann@25184
  2274
c) Permutative equations (e.g. "a + b = b + a")
haftmann@25184
  2275
Since the change of names also changes the order of terms, permutative
haftmann@25184
  2276
rewrite rules may get applied in a different order. Experience shows
haftmann@25184
  2277
that this is rarely the case (only two adaptions in the whole Isabelle
haftmann@25184
  2278
distribution).  INCOMPATIBILITY: rewrite proofs
haftmann@25184
  2279
haftmann@25184
  2280
d) ML code directly refering to constant names
haftmann@25184
  2281
This in general only affects hand-written proof tactics, simprocs and
haftmann@25184
  2282
so on.  INCOMPATIBILITY: grep your sourcecode and replace names.
haftmann@25184
  2283
Consider using @{const_name} antiquotation.
haftmann@25184
  2284
haftmann@25184
  2285
* New class "default" with associated constant "default".

* Function "sgn" is now overloaded and available on int, real, complex
haftmann@25184

(and other numeric types), using class "sgn".  Two possible defs of
haftmann@25184
  2289
sgn are given as equational assumptions in the classes sgn_if and
haftmann@25184

sgn_div_norm; ordered_idom now also inherits from sgn_if.

  2291
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
  2292
haftmann@25184
  2293
* Locale "partial_order" now unified with class "order" (cf. theory
haftmann@25184
  2294
Orderings), added parameter "less".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
  2295
haftmann@25184
  2296
* Renamings in classes "order" and "linorder": facts "refl", "trans" and
haftmann@25184
  2297
"cases" to "order_refl", "order_trans" and "linorder_cases", to avoid
haftmann@25184
  2298
clashes with HOL "refl" and "trans".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
  2299
haftmann@25184
  2300
* Classes "order" and "linorder": potential INCOMPATIBILITY due to

in all contexts importing or interpreting the corresponding locales.
haftmann@25184
  2306
Method "order" invokes the reasoner separately; the reasoner
haftmann@25184
  2307
is also integrated with the Simplifier as a solver.  Diagnostic
haftmann@25184

type "'a::size ==> bool"
haftmann@25184
  2436
wenzelm@24800
  2437
* Internal reorganisation of `size' of datatypes: size theorems

  2438
"foo.size" are no longer subsumed by "foo.simps" (but are still
wenzelm@24800
  2439
simplification rules by default!); theorems "prod.size" now named
haftmann@25184
  2440
"*.size".
haftmann@25184
  2441
haftmann@25184
  2442
* Class "div" now inherits from class "times" rather than "type".

  2453
operations, reflection into int, nat, and bool lists, automation for

  2454
linear arithmetic (by automatic reflection into nat or int), including

  2455
lemmas on overflow and monotonicity.  Instantiated to all appropriate

  2462
haftmann@23850
  2463
* Code generator library theories:
haftmann@24993
  2464
  - Code_Integer represents HOL integers by big integer literals in target
haftmann@23850
  2465
    languages.
haftmann@24993
  2466
  - Code_Char represents HOL characters by character literals in target
haftmann@23850
  2467
    languages.
haftmann@24993
  2468
  - Code_Char_chr like Code_Char, but also offers treatment of character
haftmann@24993
  2469
    codes; includes Code_Integer.
wenzelm@24800
  2470
  - Executable_Set allows to generate code for finite sets using lists.
wenzelm@24800
  2471
  - Executable_Rat implements rational numbers as triples (sign, enumerator,
haftmann@23850
  2472
    denominator).
wenzelm@24800
  2473
  - Executable_Real implements a subset of real numbers, namly those
haftmann@23850
  2474
    representable by rational numbers.
wenzelm@24800
  2475
  - Efficient_Nat implements natural numbers by integers, which in general will
haftmann@23850
  2476
    result in higher efficency; pattern matching with 0/Suc is eliminated;
haftmann@24993
  2477
    includes Code_Integer.
haftmann@24993
  2478
  - Code_Index provides an additional datatype index which is mapped to
haftmann@24993
  2479
    target-language built-in integers.
haftmann@26355
  2480
  - Code_Message provides an additional datatype message_string which is isomorphic to
haftmann@24993
  2481
    strings; messages are mapped to target-language strings.

* New package for inductive predicates
berghofe@23783
  2484
berghofe@23783
  2485
  An n-ary predicate p with m parameters z_1, ..., z_m can now be defined via
berghofe@23783
  2486
berghofe@23783
  2487
    inductive
berghofe@23783
  2488
      p :: "U_1 => ... => U_m => T_1 => ... => T_n => bool"

  2492
    | ...
berghofe@23783
  2493
wenzelm@24800
  2494

berghofe@23783
  2496
    consts s :: "U_1 => ... => U_m => (T_1 * ... * T_n) set"

  2504
      ...
berghofe@23783
  2505
berghofe@23783
  2506
  For backward compatibility, there is a wrapper allowing inductive
berghofe@23783
  2507
  sets to be defined with the new package via
berghofe@23783
  2508
berghofe@23783

berghofe@23783
  2531
berghofe@23783
  2532
  INCOMPATIBILITIES:
berghofe@23783
  2533
berghofe@23783
  2534
  - Since declaration and definition of inductive sets or predicates
wenzelm@24800
  2535
    is no longer separated, abbreviations involving the newly
wenzelm@24800
  2536
    introduced sets or predicates must be specified together with the
wenzelm@24800
  2537
    introduction rules after the 'where' keyword (see above), rather
wenzelm@24800
  2538
    than before the actual inductive definition.
wenzelm@24800
  2539
wenzelm@24800
  2540
  - The variables in induction and elimination rules are now
wenzelm@24800
  2541
    quantified in the order of their occurrence in the introduction
wenzelm@24800
  2542
    rules, rather than in alphabetical order. Since this may break
wenzelm@24800
  2543
    some proofs, these proofs either have to be repaired, e.g. by
wenzelm@24800
  2544
    reordering the variables a_i_1 ... a_i_{k_i} in Isar 'case'
wenzelm@24800
  2545
    statements of the form
berghofe@23783
  2546
berghofe@23783
  2547
      case (rule_i a_i_1 ... a_i_{k_i})
berghofe@23783
  2548
berghofe@23783
  2549
    or the old order of quantification has to be restored by explicitly adding
berghofe@23783
  2550
    meta-level quantifiers in the introduction rules, i.e.
berghofe@23783
  2551
berghofe@23783
  2552
      | rule_i: "!!a_i_1 ... a_i_{k_i}. ... ==> p z_1 ... z_m t_i_1 ... t_i_n"
berghofe@23783
  2553
berghofe@23783
  2554
  - The format of the elimination rules is now
berghofe@23783
  2555
berghofe@23783
  2556
      p z_1 ... z_m x_1 ... x_n ==>
berghofe@23783
  2557
        (!!a_1_1 ... a_1_{k_1}. x_1 = t_1_1 ==> ... ==> x_n = t_1_n ==> ... ==> P)
berghofe@23783
  2558
        ==> ... ==> P
berghofe@23783
  2559
berghofe@23783
  2560
    for predicates and
berghofe@23783
  2561
berghofe@23783
  2562
      (x_1, ..., x_n) : s z_1 ... z_m ==>
berghofe@23783
  2563
        (!!a_1_1 ... a_1_{k_1}. x_1 = t_1_1 ==> ... ==> x_n = t_1_n ==> ... ==> P)
berghofe@23783
  2564
        ==> ... ==> P
berghofe@23783
  2565
berghofe@23783
  2566
    for sets rather than
berghofe@23783
  2567
berghofe@23783
  2568
      x : s z_1 ... z_m ==>
berghofe@23783
  2569
        (!!a_1_1 ... a_1_{k_1}. x = (t_1_1, ..., t_1_n) ==> ... ==> P)
berghofe@23783
  2570
        ==> ... ==> P
berghofe@23783
  2571
wenzelm@24800
  2572
    This may require terms in goals to be expanded to n-tuples
wenzelm@24800
  2573
    (e.g. using case_tac or simplification with the split_paired_all
wenzelm@24800
  2574
    rule) before the above elimination rule is applicable.
wenzelm@24800
  2575
wenzelm@24800
  2576
  - The elimination or case analysis rules for (mutually) inductive
wenzelm@24800
  2577
    sets or predicates are now called "p_1.cases" ... "p_k.cases". The
wenzelm@24800
  2578
    list of rules "p_1_..._p_k.elims" is no longer available.
berghofe@23783
  2579
krauss@25198
  2580
* New package "function"/"fun" for general recursive functions,
krauss@25198
  2581
supporting mutual and nested recursion, definitions in local contexts,
krauss@25198
  2582
more general pattern matching and partiality. See HOL/ex/Fundefs.thy
krauss@25198
  2583
for small examples, and the separate tutorial on the function
krauss@25198
  2584
package. The old recdef "package" is still available as before, but
krauss@25198
  2585
users are encouraged to use the new package.
krauss@25198
  2586
krauss@25198
  2587
* Method "lexicographic_order" automatically synthesizes termination
krauss@25198
  2588
relations as lexicographic combinations of size measures. 
krauss@25198
  2589
wenzelm@24800
  2590
* Case-expressions allow arbitrary constructor-patterns (including
wenzelm@24800
  2591
"_") and take their order into account, like in functional
wenzelm@24800
  2592
programming.  Internally, this is translated into nested
wenzelm@24800
  2593
case-expressions; missing cases are added and mapped to the predefined
wenzelm@24800
  2594
constant "undefined". In complicated cases printing may no longer show
wenzelm@24800
  2595
the original input but the internal form. Lambda-abstractions allow
wenzelm@24800
  2596
the same form of pattern matching: "% pat1 => e1 | ..." is an

* IntDef: The constant "int :: nat => int" has been removed; now "int"
wenzelm@24800
  2601
is an abbreviation for "of_nat :: nat => int". The simplification
wenzelm@24800
  2602
rules for "of_nat" have been changed to work like "int" did
wenzelm@24800
  2603
previously.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY:
huffman@23468
  2604
  - "of_nat (Suc m)" simplifies to "1 + of_nat m" instead of "of_nat m + 1"
huffman@23468
  2605
  - of_nat_diff and of_nat_mult are no longer default simp rules

* Method "algebra" solves polynomial equations over (semi)rings using
wenzelm@24800
  2608
Groebner bases. The (semi)ring structure is defined by locales and the
wenzelm@24800
  2609
tool setup depends on that generic context. Installing the method for
wenzelm@24800
  2610
a specific type involves instantiating the locale and possibly adding
wenzelm@24800
  2611
declarations for computation on the coefficients.  The method is
wenzelm@24800
  2612
already instantiated for natural numbers and for the axiomatic class
wenzelm@24800
  2613
of idoms with numerals.  See also the paper by Chaieb and Wenzel at

CALCULEMUS 2007 for the general principles underlying this
wenzelm@24800
  2615
architecture of context-aware proof-tools.

* Method "ferrack" implements quantifier elimination over
wenzelm@25033
  2618
special-purpose dense linear orders using locales (analogous to
wenzelm@25033
  2619
"algebra"). The method is already installed for class
wenzelm@25033
  2620
{ordered_field,recpower,number_ring} which subsumes real, hyperreal,
wenzelm@25033
  2621
rat, etc.
