*** General ***
wenzelm@25522
     8
wenzelm@25579
     9
* Syntax: symbol \<chi> is now considered a letter.  Potential
wenzelm@25579
    10
INCOMPATIBILITY in identifier syntax etc.
wenzelm@25579
    11
wenzelm@25579
    12
* Outer syntax: string tokens may contain arbitrary character codes
wenzelm@25579
    13
specified via 3 decimal digits (as in SML).  E.g. "foo\095bar" for
wenzelm@25579
    14
"foo_bar".
wenzelm@25522
    15
wenzelm@26006
    16
* Outer syntax: string tokens no longer admit escaped white space,
wenzelm@26006
    17
which was an accidental (undocumented) feature.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use
wenzelm@26006
    18
white space directly.
wenzelm@26006
    19
wenzelm@25994
    20
* Theory loader: use_thy (and similar operations) no longer set the
wenzelm@25994
    21
implicit ML context, which was occasionally hard to predict and in
wenzelm@25994
    22
conflict with concurrency.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use ML within Isar which
wenzelm@25994
    23
provides a proper context already.

*** Pure ***
haftmann@25502
    27
wenzelm@25970
    28
* Instantiation target allows for simultaneous specification of class
wenzelm@25970
    29
instance operations together with an instantiation proof.
wenzelm@25970
    30
Type-checking phase allows to refer to class operations uniformly.
wenzelm@25970
    31
See HOL/Complex/Complex.thy for an Isar example and
wenzelm@26180
    32
HOL/Library/Eval.thy for an ML example.
haftmann@25502
    33
wenzelm@26201
    34
* Indexing of literal facts: be more serious about including only
wenzelm@26201
    35
facts from the visible specification/proof context, but not the
wenzelm@26201
    36
background context (locale etc.).  Affects `prop` notation and method
wenzelm@26201
    37
"fact".  INCOMPATIBILITY: need to name facts explicitly in rare
wenzelm@26201
    38
situations.
wenzelm@26201

*** HOL ***
wenzelm@25464
    42
krauss@26197
    43
* Library/RBT.thy: New theory of red-black trees, an efficient
krauss@26197
    44
implementation of finite maps.
krauss@26197
    45
wenzelm@26180
    46
* Theory Int: The representation of numerals has changed.  The infix
wenzelm@26180
    47
operator BIT and the bit datatype with constructors B0 and B1 have
wenzelm@26180
    48
disappeared.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use "Int.Bit0 x" and "Int.Bit1 y" in
wenzelm@26180
    49
place of "x BIT bit.B0" and "y BIT bit.B1", respectively.  Theorems
wenzelm@26180
    50
involving BIT, B0, or B1 have been renamed with "Bit0" or "Bit1"
wenzelm@26180
    51
accordingly.
wenzelm@26180
    52
wenzelm@26180
    53
* Theory Nat: definition of <= and < on natural numbers no longer
wenzelm@26180
    54
depend on well-founded relations.  INCOMPATIBILITY.  Definitions
wenzelm@26180
    55
le_def and less_def have disappeared.  Consider lemmas not_less
wenzelm@26180
    56
[symmetric, where ?'a = nat] and less_eq [symmetric] instead.
wenzelm@26180
    57
wenzelm@26180
    58
* Theory Finite_Set: locales ACf, ACe, ACIf, ACIfSL and ACIfSLlin
wenzelm@26180
    59
(whose purpose mainly is for various fold_set functionals) have been
wenzelm@26180
    60
abandoned in favour of the existing algebraic classes
wenzelm@26180
    61
ab_semigroup_mult, comm_monoid_mult, ab_semigroup_idem_mult,
wenzelm@26180
    62
lower_semilattice (resp. upper_semilattice) and linorder.
haftmann@26139
    63
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@26041
    64
wenzelm@26180
    65
* Theory Transitive_Closure: induct and cases rules now declare proper
wenzelm@26180
    66
case_names ("base" and "step").  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@26180
    67
wenzelm@26180
    68
* Theorem Inductive.lfp_ordinal_induct generalized to complete
wenzelm@26180
    69
lattices.  The form set-specific version is available as
wenzelm@26180
    70
Inductive.lfp_ordinal_induct_set.
haftmann@26013
    71
haftmann@25961
    72
* Theorems "power.simps" renamed to "power_int.simps".
haftmann@25961
    73
wenzelm@26180
    74
* Class semiring_div provides basic abstract properties of semirings
haftmann@25942
    75
with division and modulo operations.  Subsumes former class dvd_mod.
haftmann@25942
    76
wenzelm@26180
    77
* Merged theories IntDef, Numeral and IntArith into unified theory
wenzelm@26180
    78
Int.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@26180
    79
wenzelm@26180
    80
* Theory Library/Code_Index: type "index" now represents natural
wenzelm@26180
    81
numbers rather than integers.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@26180
    82
wenzelm@26180
    83
* New class "uminus" with operation "uminus" (split of from class
wenzelm@26180
    84
"minus" which now only has operation "minus", binary).
haftmann@25919
    85
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25919
    86
haftmann@25557
    87
* New primrec package.  Specification syntax conforms in style to
wenzelm@26180
    88
definition/function/....  No separate induction rule is provided.  The
wenzelm@26180
    89
"primrec" command distinguishes old-style and new-style specifications
haftmann@25599
    90
by syntax.  The former primrec package is now named OldPrimrecPackage.
haftmann@25609
    91
When adjusting theories, beware: constants stemming for new-style
haftmann@25609
    92
primrec specifications have authentic syntax.
haftmann@25557
    93
wenzelm@25522
    94
* Library/Multiset: {#a, b, c#} abbreviates {#a#} + {#b#} + {#c#}.
wenzelm@25522
    95
wenzelm@26180
    96
* Library/ListVector: new theory of arithmetic vector operations.
nipkow@25900
    97
wenzelm@25522
    98
* Constants "card", "internal_split", "option_map" now with authentic
haftmann@25919
    99
syntax.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@25522
   100
wenzelm@25522
   101
* Definitions subset_def, psubset_def, set_diff_def, Compl_def,
wenzelm@25522
   102
le_bool_def, less_bool_def, le_fun_def, less_fun_def, inf_bool_def,
wenzelm@25522
   103
sup_bool_def, Inf_bool_def, Sup_bool_def, inf_fun_def, sup_fun_def,
wenzelm@25522
   104
Inf_fun_def, Sup_fun_def, inf_set_def, sup_set_def, Inf_set_def,
wenzelm@25522
   105
Sup_set_def, le_def, less_def, option_map_def now with object
haftmann@25919
   106
equality.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@25464
   107
wenzelm@26180
   108
* Method "induction_scheme" derives user-specified induction rules
krauss@25664
   109
from wellfounded induction and completeness of patterns. This factors
krauss@25664
   110
out some operations that are done internally by the function package
krauss@25664
   111
and makes them available separately. See "HOL/ex/Induction_Scheme.thy"
krauss@25664
   112
for examples,
krauss@25664
   113
schirmer@25705
   114
* Records. Removed K_record, and replaced it by pure lambda term
wenzelm@25726
   115
%x. c. The simplifier setup is now more robust against eta expansion.
schirmer@25705
   116
INCOMPATIBILITY: in cases explicitly referring to K_record.
wenzelm@25464
   117
wenzelm@25726
   118
* Metis prover is now an order of magnitude faster, and also works
wenzelm@25726
   119
with multithreading.
wenzelm@25726
   120
wenzelm@25726
   121
krauss@26197
   122
*** ZF ***
krauss@26197
   123
krauss@26197
   124
* Renamed theories:
krauss@26197
   125
krauss@26197
   126
  Datatype.thy  -> Datatype_ZF.thy
krauss@26197
   127
  Inductive.thy -> Inductive_ZF.thy
krauss@26197
   128
  Int.thy       -> Int_ZF.thy
krauss@26197
   129
  IntDiv.thy    -> IntDiv_ZF.thy
krauss@26197
   130
  Nat.thy       -> Nat_ZF.thy
krauss@26197
   131
  List.thy      -> List_ZF.thy
krauss@26197
   132
  Main.thy      -> Main_ZF.thy
krauss@26197
   133
krauss@26197
   134
 This is to allow to load both ZF and HOL in the same session.
krauss@26197
   135
krauss@26197
   136
 INCOMPATIBILITY: ZF theories that import individual theories below
krauss@26197
   137
 Main might need to be adapted. For compatibility, a new 
krauss@26197
   138
 "theory Main imports Main_ZF begin end" is provided, so if you just
krauss@26197
   139
 imported "Main", no changes are needed.
krauss@26197
   140
krauss@26197
   141
wenzelm@25737
   142
*** ML ***
wenzelm@25737
   143
wenzelm@26188
   144
* ML within Isar: antiquotation @{const name} or @{const
wenzelm@26188
   145
name(typargs)} produces statically-checked Const term.
wenzelm@26188
   146
wenzelm@25737
   147
* The ``print mode'' is now a thread-local value derived from a global
wenzelm@25737
   148
template (the former print_mode reference), thus access becomes
wenzelm@25737
   149
non-critical.  The global print_mode reference is for session
wenzelm@25737
   150
management only; user-code should use print_mode_value,
wenzelm@25737
   151
print_mode_active, PrintMode.setmp etc.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@25737
   152
wenzelm@25737
   153
wenzelm@25626
   154
*** System ***
wenzelm@25626
   155
wenzelm@25971
   156
* Default settings: PROOFGENERAL_OPTIONS no longer impose xemacs ---
wenzelm@25971
   157
in accordance with Proof General 3.7, which prefers GNU emacs.
wenzelm@25970
   158
wenzelm@25776
   159
* Multithreading.max_threads := 0 refers to the number of actual CPU
wenzelm@25776
   160
cores of the underlying machine, which is a good starting point for
wenzelm@25776
   161
optimal performance tuning.  The corresponding usedir option -M allows
wenzelm@25778
   162
"max" as an alias for "0".  WARNING: does not work on certain versions
wenzelm@25778
   163
of Mac OS (with Poly/ML 5.1).
wenzelm@25776
   164
wenzelm@25626
   165
* isatool tty runs Isabelle process with plain tty interaction;
wenzelm@25626
   166
optional line editor may be specified via ISABELLE_LINE_EDITOR
wenzelm@25626
   167
setting, the default settings attempt to locate "ledit" and "rlwrap".
wenzelm@25626
   168
wenzelm@25651
   169
* isatool browser now works with Cygwin as well, using general
wenzelm@25651
   170
"javapath" function defined in Isabelle process environment.
wenzelm@25651
   171
wenzelm@25651
   172
* isabelle-process: non-ML sessions are run with "nice", to prevent
wenzelm@25651
   173
Isabelle from flooding interactive front-ends (notably ProofGeneral /
wenzelm@25651
   174
XEmacs).
wenzelm@25651
   175
wenzelm@25652
   176
* JVM class isabelle.IsabelleProcess (located in Isabelle/lib/classes)
wenzelm@25651
   177
provides general wrapper for managing an Isabelle process in a robust
wenzelm@25651
   178
fashion, with ``cooked'' output from stdin/stderr.
wenzelm@25651
   179
wenzelm@25855
   180
* Rudimentary Isabelle plugin for jEdit (see Isabelle/lib/jedit),
wenzelm@25855
   181
based on Isabelle/JVM process wrapper (see Isabelle/lib/classes).
wenzelm@25855

New in Isabelle2007 (November 2007)

-----------------------------------
wenzelm@17754
   187
wenzelm@17754
   188
*** General ***
wenzelm@17754
   189
wenzelm@22826
   190
* More uniform information about legacy features, notably a
wenzelm@22826
   191
warning/error of "Legacy feature: ...", depending on the state of the
wenzelm@23367
   192
tolerate_legacy_features flag (default true). FUTURE INCOMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@23367
   193
legacy features will disappear eventually.
wenzelm@22826
   194
wenzelm@17918
   195
* Theory syntax: the header format ``theory A = B + C:'' has been
wenzelm@17918
   196
discontinued in favour of ``theory A imports B C begin''.  Use isatool
wenzelm@17918
   197
fixheaders to convert existing theory files.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17918
   198
wenzelm@17918
   199
* Theory syntax: the old non-Isar theory file format has been
wenzelm@17918
   200
discontinued altogether.  Note that ML proof scripts may still be used
wenzelm@17918
   201
with Isar theories; migration is usually quite simple with the ML
wenzelm@17918
   202
function use_legacy_bindings.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17918
   203
wenzelm@22871
   204
* Theory syntax: some popular names (e.g. 'class', 'declaration',
wenzelm@22871
   205
'fun', 'help', 'if') are now keywords.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use double
wenzelm@22871
   206
quotes.
wenzelm@19814
   207
wenzelm@23888
   208
* Theory loader: be more serious about observing the static theory
wenzelm@23888
   209
header specifications (including optional directories), but not the
wenzelm@24172
   210
accidental file locations of previously successful loads.  The strict
wenzelm@24172
   211
update policy of former update_thy is now already performed by
wenzelm@24172
   212
use_thy, so the former has been removed; use_thys updates several
wenzelm@24172
   213
theories simultaneously, just as 'imports' within a theory header
wenzelm@24172
   214
specification, but without merging the results.  Potential
wenzelm@24172
   215
INCOMPATIBILITY: may need to refine theory headers and commands
wenzelm@24172
   216
ROOT.ML which depend on load order.
wenzelm@23888
   217
wenzelm@23888
   218
* Theory loader: optional support for content-based file
wenzelm@23888
   219
identification, instead of the traditional scheme of full physical
wenzelm@23889
   220
path plus date stamp; configured by the ISABELLE_FILE_IDENT setting
wenzelm@23888
   221
(cf. the system manual).  The new scheme allows to work with
wenzelm@23888
   222
non-finished theories in persistent session images, such that source
wenzelm@23888
   223
files may be moved later on without requiring reloads.
wenzelm@23888
   224
wenzelm@24187
   225
* Theory loader: old-style ML proof scripts being *attached* to a thy
wenzelm@24187
   226
file (with the same base name as the theory) are considered a legacy
wenzelm@24800
   227
feature, which will disappear eventually. Even now, the theory loader
wenzelm@24800
   228
no longer maintains dependencies on such files.
wenzelm@24800
   229
wenzelm@24800
   230
* Syntax: the scope for resolving ambiguities via type-inference is
wenzelm@24800
   231
now limited to individual terms, instead of whole simultaneous
wenzelm@24234
   232
specifications as before. This greatly reduces the complexity of the
wenzelm@24234
   233
syntax module and improves flexibility by separating parsing and
wenzelm@24234
   234
type-checking. INCOMPATIBILITY: additional type-constraints (explicit
wenzelm@24234
   235
'fixes' etc.) are required in rare situations.
wenzelm@24234
   236
wenzelm@25034
   237
* Syntax: constants introduced by new-style packages ('definition',
wenzelm@25034
   238
'abbreviation' etc.) are passed through the syntax module in
wenzelm@25034
   239
``authentic mode''. This means that associated mixfix annotations
wenzelm@25034
   240
really stick to such constants, independently of potential name space
wenzelm@25034
   241
ambiguities introduced later on. INCOMPATIBILITY: constants in parse
wenzelm@25034
   242
trees are represented slightly differently, may need to adapt syntax
wenzelm@25034
   243
translations accordingly. Use CONST marker in 'translations' and
wenzelm@25034
   244
@{const_syntax} antiquotation in 'parse_translation' etc.
wenzelm@25034
   245
wenzelm@17981
   246
* Legacy goal package: reduced interface to the bare minimum required
wenzelm@17981
   247
to keep existing proof scripts running.  Most other user-level
wenzelm@17981
   248
functions are now part of the OldGoals structure, which is *not* open
wenzelm@17981
   249
by default (consider isatool expandshort before open OldGoals).
wenzelm@17981
   250
Removed top_sg, prin, printyp, pprint_term/typ altogether, because
wenzelm@17981
   251
these tend to cause confusion about the actual goal (!) context being
wenzelm@17981
   252
used here, which is not necessarily the same as the_context().
wenzelm@17918
   253
wenzelm@23379
   254
* Command 'find_theorems': supports "*" wild-card in "name:"
wenzelm@23379
   255
criterion; "with_dups" option.  Certain ProofGeneral versions might
wenzelm@23379
   256
support a specific search form (see ProofGeneral/CHANGES).
webertj@22965
   257
wenzelm@20370
   258
* The ``prems limit'' option (cf. ProofContext.prems_limit) is now -1
wenzelm@20370
   259
by default, which means that "prems" (and also "fixed variables") are
wenzelm@20370
   260
suppressed from proof state output.  Note that the ProofGeneral
wenzelm@20370
   261
settings mechanism allows to change and save options persistently, but
wenzelm@20370
   262
older versions of Isabelle will fail to start up if a negative prems
wenzelm@20370
   263
limit is imposed.
wenzelm@20370
   264
wenzelm@21308
   265
* Local theory targets may be specified by non-nested blocks of
wenzelm@21308
   266
``context/locale/class ... begin'' followed by ``end''.  The body may
wenzelm@21308
   267
contain definitions, theorems etc., including any derived mechanism

   268
that has been implemented on top of these primitives.  This concept
wenzelm@21308
   269
generalizes the existing ``theorem (in ...)'' towards more versatility
wenzelm@21308
   270
and scalability.

* Added antiquotation @{theory name} which prints the given name,
wenzelm@21717
   279
after checking that it refers to a valid ancestor theory in the
wenzelm@21717
   280
current context.
haftmann@21339
   281
wenzelm@17869
   282
* Added antiquotations @{ML_type text} and @{ML_struct text} which
wenzelm@17869
   283
check the given source text as ML type/structure, printing verbatim.
wenzelm@17865
   284
wenzelm@21717
   285
* Added antiquotation @{abbrev "c args"} which prints the abbreviation
wenzelm@21717
   286
"c args == rhs" given in the current context.  (Any number of
wenzelm@21735
   287
arguments may be given on the LHS.)

* The 'class' package offers a combination of axclass and locale to
wenzelm@25129
   293
achieve Haskell-like type classes in Isabelle.  Definitions and
wenzelm@25129
   294
theorems within a class context produce both relative results (with
wenzelm@25129
   295
implicit parameters according to the locale context), and polymorphic
wenzelm@25129
   296
constants with qualified polymorphism (according to the class
wenzelm@25129
   297
context).  Within the body context of a 'class' target, a separate
wenzelm@25129
   298
syntax layer ("user space type system") takes care of converting
wenzelm@25129
   299
between global polymorphic consts and internal locale representation.

* Generic code generator framework allows to generate executable
wenzelm@24800
   304
code for ML and Haskell (including Isabelle classes).  A short usage

   305
sketch:
haftmann@20188
   306
haftmann@20188
   307
    internal compilation:
haftmann@25199
   308
        export_code <list of constants (term syntax)> in SML
haftmann@20453
   309
    writing SML code to a file:

Theorem attributs for selecting and transforming function equations theorems:
haftmann@20453
   322
haftmann@22845
   323
    [code fun]:        select a theorem as function equation for a specific constant
haftmann@22845
   324
    [code fun del]:    deselect a theorem as function equation for a specific constant
haftmann@22845
   325
    [code inline]:     select an equation theorem for unfolding (inlining) in place
haftmann@22845
   326
    [code inline del]: deselect an equation theorem for unfolding (inlining) in place

User-defined serializations (target in {SML, OCaml, Haskell}):
haftmann@20453

haftmann@20453
   330
    code_const <and-list of constants (term syntax)>
haftmann@20453

      {(target) <and-list of const target syntax>}+
haftmann@20453
   332

   333
    code_type <and-list of type constructors>
haftmann@20453

      {(target) <and-list of type target syntax>}+
haftmann@20453
   335
haftmann@20453
   336
    code_instance <and-list of instances>
haftmann@20453
   337
      {(target)}+
haftmann@20453
   338
        where instance ::= <type constructor> :: <class>

    code_class <and_list of classes>

haftmann@20453
   342
        where class target syntax ::= <class name> {where {<classop> == <target syntax>}+}?
haftmann@20453
   343
haftmann@25199
   344
code_instance and code_class only are effective to target Haskell.

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

wenzelm@25129
   351
* Code generator: consts in 'consts_code' Isar commands are now
wenzelm@25129
   352
referred to by usual term syntax (including optional type
wenzelm@25129
   353
annotations).
wenzelm@25129
   354
wenzelm@19254
   355
* Command 'no_translations' removes translation rules from theory
wenzelm@19254
   356
syntax.
wenzelm@19254
   357
wenzelm@19625
   358
* Overloaded definitions are now actually checked for acyclic
wenzelm@19714
   359
dependencies.  The overloading scheme is slightly more general than
wenzelm@19714
   360
that of Haskell98, although Isabelle does not demand an exact
wenzelm@19714
   361
correspondence to type class and instance declarations.
wenzelm@19714
   362
INCOMPATIBILITY, use ``defs (unchecked overloaded)'' to admit more
wenzelm@19714
   363
exotic versions of overloading -- at the discretion of the user!
wenzelm@19711
   364
wenzelm@19711
   365
Polymorphic constants are represented via type arguments, i.e. the
wenzelm@19711
   366
instantiation that matches an instance against the most general
wenzelm@19711
   367
declaration given in the signature.  For example, with the declaration
wenzelm@19711
   368
c :: 'a => 'a => 'a, an instance c :: nat => nat => nat is represented
wenzelm@19711
   369
as c(nat).  Overloading is essentially simultaneous structural
wenzelm@19711
   370
recursion over such type arguments.  Incomplete specification patterns
wenzelm@19714
   371
impose global constraints on all occurrences, e.g. c('a * 'a) on the
wenzelm@19715
   372
LHS means that more general c('a * 'b) will be disallowed on any RHS.
wenzelm@19714
   373
Command 'print_theory' outputs the normalized system of recursive
wenzelm@19714
   374
equations, see section "definitions".
wenzelm@19625
   375
wenzelm@24086
   376
* Configuration options are maintained within the theory or proof
wenzelm@24086
   377
context (with name and type bool/int/string), providing a very simple
wenzelm@24086
   378
interface to a poor-man's version of general context data.  Tools may
wenzelm@24110
   379
declare options in ML (e.g. using Attrib.config_int) and then refer to
wenzelm@24110
   380
these values using Config.get etc.  Users may change options via an
wenzelm@24110
   381
associated attribute of the same name.  This form of context
wenzelm@24110
   382
declaration works particularly well with commands 'declare' or
wenzelm@24110
   383
'using', for example ``declare [[foo = 42]]''.  Thus it has become
wenzelm@24110
   384
very easy to avoid global references, which would not observe Isar
wenzelm@24110
   385
toplevel undo/redo and fail to work with multithreading.
wenzelm@24086
   386
wenzelm@24172
   387
Various global ML references of Pure and HOL have been turned into
wenzelm@24172
   388
configuration options:
wenzelm@24172

wenzelm@24086
   400
* Named collections of theorems may be easily installed as context
wenzelm@24800
   401
data using the functor NamedThmsFun (see also
wenzelm@24086
   402
src/Pure/Tools/named_thms.ML).  The user may add or delete facts via
wenzelm@24110
   403
attributes; there is also a toplevel print command.  This facility is
wenzelm@24110
   404
just a common case of general context data, which is the preferred way
wenzelm@24110
   405
for anything more complex than just a list of facts in canonical
wenzelm@24110
   406
order.
wenzelm@24086
   407
wenzelm@24032
   408
* Isar: command 'declaration' augments a local theory by generic
wenzelm@24032
   409
declaration functions written in ML.  This enables arbitrary content
wenzelm@24032
   410
being added to the context, depending on a morphism that tells the
wenzelm@24032
   411
difference of the original declaration context wrt. the application
wenzelm@24032
   412
context encountered later on.
wenzelm@24032
   413
wenzelm@24032
   414
* Isar: proper interfaces for simplification procedures.  Command
wenzelm@24032
   415
'simproc_setup' declares named simprocs (with match patterns, and body
wenzelm@24032
   416
text in ML).  Attribute "simproc" adds/deletes simprocs in the current
wenzelm@24032
   417
context.  ML antiquotation @{simproc name} retrieves named simprocs.
wenzelm@24032
   418
wenzelm@24032
   419
* Isar: an extra pair of brackets around attribute declarations
wenzelm@24032
   420
abbreviates a theorem reference involving an internal dummy fact,
wenzelm@24032
   421
which will be ignored later --- only the effect of the attribute on
wenzelm@24032
   422
the background context will persist.  This form of in-place
wenzelm@24032
   423
declarations is particularly useful with commands like 'declare' and
wenzelm@24032
   424
'using', for example ``have A using [[simproc a]] by simp''.
wenzelm@24032
   425
wenzelm@23369
   426
* Isar: method "assumption" (and implicit closing of subproofs) now
wenzelm@23369
   427
takes simple non-atomic goal assumptions into account: after applying
wenzelm@23369
   428
an assumption as a rule the resulting subgoals are solved by atomic
wenzelm@23369
   429
assumption steps.  This is particularly useful to finish 'obtain'
wenzelm@23369
   430
goals, such as "!!x. (!!x. P x ==> thesis) ==> P x ==> thesis",
wenzelm@23369
   431
without referring to the original premise "!!x. P x ==> thesis" in the
wenzelm@23369
   432
Isar proof context.  POTENTIAL INCOMPATIBILITY: method "assumption" is
wenzelm@23369
   433
more permissive.
wenzelm@23369
   434
wenzelm@23369
   435
* Isar: implicit use of prems from the Isar proof context is
wenzelm@23369
   436
considered a legacy feature.  Common applications like ``have A .''
wenzelm@23369
   437
may be replaced by ``have A by fact'' or ``note `A`''.  In general,
wenzelm@23369
   438
referencing facts explicitly here improves readability and
wenzelm@23369
   439
maintainability of proof texts.
wenzelm@23369
   440
wenzelm@17865
   441
* Isar: improper proof element 'guess' is like 'obtain', but derives
wenzelm@17865
   442
the obtained context from the course of reasoning!  For example:
wenzelm@17865
   443
wenzelm@17865
   444
  assume "EX x y. A x & B y"   -- "any previous fact"
wenzelm@17865
   445
  then guess x and y by clarify
wenzelm@17865
   446
wenzelm@17865
   447
This technique is potentially adventurous, depending on the facts and
wenzelm@17865
   448
proof tools being involved here.
wenzelm@17865
   449
wenzelm@18020
   450
* Isar: known facts from the proof context may be specified as literal
wenzelm@18020
   451
propositions, using ASCII back-quote syntax.  This works wherever
wenzelm@18020
   452
named facts used to be allowed so far, in proof commands, proof
wenzelm@18020
   453
methods, attributes etc.  Literal facts are retrieved from the context
wenzelm@18020
   454
according to unification of type and term parameters.  For example,
wenzelm@18020
   455
provided that "A" and "A ==> B" and "!!x. P x ==> Q x" are known
wenzelm@18020
   456
theorems in the current context, then these are valid literal facts:
wenzelm@18020
   457
`A` and `A ==> B` and `!!x. P x ==> Q x" as well as `P a ==> Q a` etc.
wenzelm@18020
   458
wenzelm@18020
   459
There is also a proof method "fact" which does the same composition
wenzelm@18044
   460
for explicit goal states, e.g. the following proof texts coincide with
wenzelm@18044
   461
certain special cases of literal facts:
wenzelm@18020
   462
wenzelm@18020
   463
  have "A" by fact                 ==  note `A`
wenzelm@18020
   464
  have "A ==> B" by fact           ==  note `A ==> B`
wenzelm@18020
   465
  have "!!x. P x ==> Q x" by fact  ==  note `!!x. P x ==> Q x`
wenzelm@18020
   466
  have "P a ==> Q a" by fact       ==  note `P a ==> Q a`
wenzelm@18020
   467
wenzelm@20118
   468
* Isar: ":" (colon) is no longer a symbolic identifier character in
wenzelm@20118
   469
outer syntax.  Thus symbolic identifiers may be used without
wenzelm@20118
   470
additional white space in declarations like this: ``assume *: A''.
wenzelm@20118
   471
wenzelm@20013
   472
* Isar: 'print_facts' prints all local facts of the current context,
wenzelm@20013
   473
both named and unnamed ones.
wenzelm@20013
   474
wenzelm@18308
   475
* Isar: 'def' now admits simultaneous definitions, e.g.:
wenzelm@18308
   476
wenzelm@18308
   477
  def x == "t" and y == "u"
wenzelm@18308
   478
wenzelm@18540
   479
* Isar: added command 'unfolding', which is structurally similar to
wenzelm@18540
   480
'using', but affects both the goal state and facts by unfolding given
wenzelm@18815
   481
rewrite rules.  Thus many occurrences of the 'unfold' method or
wenzelm@18540
   482
'unfolded' attribute may be replaced by first-class proof text.
wenzelm@18540
   483
wenzelm@18815
   484
* Isar: methods 'unfold' / 'fold', attributes 'unfolded' / 'folded',
wenzelm@18815
   485
and command 'unfolding' now all support object-level equalities
wenzelm@18815
   486
(potentially conditional).  The underlying notion of rewrite rule is
wenzelm@18815
   487
analogous to the 'rule_format' attribute, but *not* that of the
wenzelm@18815
   488
Simplifier (which is usually more generous).
wenzelm@18815
   489
kleing@24238
   490
* Isar: the new attribute [rotated n] (default n = 1) rotates the
kleing@24238
   491
premises of a theorem by n. Useful in conjunction with drule.
kleing@24238
   492
wenzelm@19220
   493
* Isar: the goal restriction operator [N] (default N = 1) evaluates a
wenzelm@19220
   494
method expression within a sandbox consisting of the first N
wenzelm@19240
   495
sub-goals, which need to exist.  For example, ``simp_all [3]''
wenzelm@19240
   496
simplifies the first three sub-goals, while (rule foo, simp_all)[]
wenzelm@19240
   497
simplifies all new goals that emerge from applying rule foo to the
wenzelm@19240
   498
originally first one.
wenzelm@19220
   499
wenzelm@19814
   500
* Isar: schematic goals are no longer restricted to higher-order
wenzelm@19814
   501
patterns; e.g. ``lemma "?P(?x)" by (rule TrueI)'' now works as
wenzelm@19814
   502
expected.
wenzelm@19814
   503
wenzelm@18901
   504
* Isar: the conclusion of a long theorem statement is now either
wenzelm@18901
   505
'shows' (a simultaneous conjunction, as before), or 'obtains'
wenzelm@18901
   506
(essentially a disjunction of cases with local parameters and
wenzelm@18901
   507
assumptions).  The latter allows to express general elimination rules
wenzelm@18910
   508
adequately; in this notation common elimination rules look like this:
wenzelm@18901
   509
wenzelm@18901
   510
  lemma exE:    -- "EX x. P x ==> (!!x. P x ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
   511
    assumes "EX x. P x"
wenzelm@18901
   512
    obtains x where "P x"
wenzelm@18901
   513
wenzelm@18901
   514
  lemma conjE:  -- "A & B ==> (A ==> B ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
   515
    assumes "A & B"
wenzelm@18901
   516
    obtains A and B
wenzelm@18901
   517
wenzelm@18901
   518
  lemma disjE:  -- "A | B ==> (A ==> thesis) ==> (B ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
   519
    assumes "A | B"
wenzelm@18901
   520
    obtains
wenzelm@18901
   521
      A
wenzelm@18901
   522
    | B
wenzelm@18901
   523
wenzelm@18910
   524
The subsequent classical rules even refer to the formal "thesis"
wenzelm@18901
   525
explicitly:
wenzelm@18901
   526
wenzelm@18901
   527
  lemma classical:     -- "(~ thesis ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
   528
    obtains "~ thesis"
wenzelm@18901
   529

  lemma Peirce's_Law:  -- "((thesis ==> something) ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18910
   531
    obtains "thesis ==> something"
wenzelm@18901
   532
wenzelm@18901
   533
The actual proof of an 'obtains' statement is analogous to that of the
wenzelm@18910
   534
Isar proof element 'obtain', only that there may be several cases.
wenzelm@18910
   535
Optional case names may be specified in parentheses; these will be
wenzelm@18910
   536
available both in the present proof and as annotations in the
wenzelm@18910
   537
resulting rule, for later use with the 'cases' method (cf. attribute
wenzelm@18910
   538
case_names).
wenzelm@18901
   539
wenzelm@21447
   540
* Isar: the assumptions of a long theorem statement are available as
wenzelm@21447
   541
"assms" fact in the proof context.  This is more appropriate than the
wenzelm@21447
   542
(historical) "prems", which refers to all assumptions of the current
wenzelm@21447
   543
context, including those from the target locale, proof body etc.
wenzelm@21447
   544
wenzelm@19263
   545
* Isar: 'print_statement' prints theorems from the current theory or
wenzelm@19263
   546
proof context in long statement form, according to the syntax of a
wenzelm@19263
   547
top-level lemma.
wenzelm@19263
   548
wenzelm@18901
   549
* Isar: 'obtain' takes an optional case name for the local context
wenzelm@18901
   550
introduction rule (default "that").
wenzelm@18901
   551
wenzelm@19587
   552
* Isar: removed obsolete 'concl is' patterns.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use
wenzelm@19587
   553
explicit (is "_ ==> ?foo") in the rare cases where this still happens
wenzelm@19587
   554
to occur.
wenzelm@19587
   555
wenzelm@19682
   556
* Pure: syntax "CONST name" produces a fully internalized constant
wenzelm@19682
   557
according to the current context.  This is particularly useful for
wenzelm@19682
   558
syntax translations that should refer to internal constant
wenzelm@19682
   559
representations independently of name spaces.
wenzelm@19682
   560
wenzelm@21537
   561
* Pure: syntax constant for foo (binder "FOO ") is called "foo_binder"
wenzelm@21537
   562
instead of "FOO ". This allows multiple binder declarations to coexist
wenzelm@21537
   563
in the same context.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@21537
   564
wenzelm@21209
   565
* Isar/locales: 'notation' provides a robust interface to the 'syntax'
wenzelm@21209
   566
primitive that also works in a locale context (both for constants and
wenzelm@24950
   567
fixed variables). Type declaration and internal syntactic representation
wenzelm@24950
   568
of given constants retrieved from the context. Likewise, the
wenzelm@24950
   569
'no_notation' command allows to remove given syntax annotations from the
wenzelm@24950
   570
current context.
wenzelm@19682
   571
wenzelm@19665
   572
* Isar/locales: new derived specification elements 'axiomatization',
wenzelm@19665
   573
'definition', 'abbreviation', which support type-inference, admit
wenzelm@19083
   574
object-level specifications (equality, equivalence).  See also the
wenzelm@19083
   575
isar-ref manual.  Examples:
wenzelm@19081
   576
wenzelm@19665
   577
  axiomatization
wenzelm@21595
   578
    eq  (infix "===" 50) where
wenzelm@21595
   579
    eq_refl: "x === x" and eq_subst: "x === y ==> P x ==> P y"
wenzelm@21595
   580
wenzelm@21595
   581
  definition "f x y = x + y + 1"
wenzelm@21595
   582
  definition g where "g x = f x x"
wenzelm@19081
   583
wenzelm@19363
   584
  abbreviation
wenzelm@21595
   585
    neq  (infix "=!=" 50) where
wenzelm@19363
   586
    "x =!= y == ~ (x === y)"
wenzelm@19081
   587
wenzelm@19083
   588
These specifications may be also used in a locale context.  Then the
wenzelm@19083
   589
constants being introduced depend on certain fixed parameters, and the
wenzelm@19083
   590
constant name is qualified by the locale base name.  An internal
wenzelm@19083
   591
abbreviation takes care for convenient input and output, making the
wenzelm@19088
   592
parameters implicit and using the original short name.  See also
wenzelm@25177
   593
src/HOL/ex/Abstract_NAT.thy for an example of deriving polymorphic
wenzelm@19083
   594
entities from a monomorphic theory.
wenzelm@19083
   595
wenzelm@19083
   596
Presently, abbreviations are only available 'in' a target locale, but
wenzelm@19363
   597
not inherited by general import expressions.  Also note that
wenzelm@19363
   598
'abbreviation' may be used as a type-safe replacement for 'syntax' +
wenzelm@24735
   599
'translations' in common applications.  The "no_abbrevs" print mode
wenzelm@24735
   600
prevents folding of abbreviations in term output.
wenzelm@19084
   601
wenzelm@19682
   602
Concrete syntax is attached to specified constants in internal form,
wenzelm@19682
   603
independently of name spaces.  The parse tree representation is
wenzelm@21209
   604
slightly different -- use 'notation' instead of raw 'syntax', and
wenzelm@19682
   605
'translations' with explicit "CONST" markup to accommodate this.
wenzelm@19665
   606
wenzelm@24800
   607
* Pure/Isar: unified syntax for new-style specification mechanisms
wenzelm@24800
   608
(e.g.  'definition', 'abbreviation', or 'inductive' in HOL) admits
wenzelm@24800
   609
full type inference and dummy patterns ("_").  For example:
wenzelm@24735
   610
wenzelm@24735
   611
  definition "K x _ = x"
wenzelm@24735
   612
wenzelm@24738
   613
  inductive conj for A B
wenzelm@24738
   614
  where "A ==> B ==> conj A B"
wenzelm@24738
   615
wenzelm@21735
   616
* Pure: command 'print_abbrevs' prints all constant abbreviations of
wenzelm@21735
   617
the current context.  Print mode "no_abbrevs" prevents inversion of
wenzelm@21735
   618
abbreviations on output.
wenzelm@21735
   619
wenzelm@24800
   620
* Isar/locales: improved parameter handling: use of locales "var" and
wenzelm@24800
   621
"struct" no longer necessary; - parameter renamings are no longer
wenzelm@24800
   622
required to be injective.  For example, this allows to define
wenzelm@24800
   623
endomorphisms as locale endom = homom mult mult h.
ballarin@19783
   624
ballarin@19931
   625
* Isar/locales: changed the way locales with predicates are defined.
ballarin@19931
   626
Instead of accumulating the specification, the imported expression is
wenzelm@22126
   627
now an interpretation.  INCOMPATIBILITY: different normal form of
wenzelm@22126
   628
locale expressions.  In particular, in interpretations of locales with
wenzelm@22126
   629
predicates, goals repesenting already interpreted fragments are not
wenzelm@22126
   630
removed automatically.  Use methods `intro_locales' and
wenzelm@22126
   631
`unfold_locales'; see below.
wenzelm@22126
   632
wenzelm@22126
   633
* Isar/locales: new methods `intro_locales' and `unfold_locales'
wenzelm@22126
   634
provide backward reasoning on locales predicates.  The methods are
wenzelm@22126
   635
aware of interpretations and discharge corresponding goals.
wenzelm@22126
   636
`intro_locales' is less aggressive then `unfold_locales' and does not
wenzelm@22126
   637
unfold predicates to assumptions.
ballarin@19931
   638
ballarin@19931
   639
* Isar/locales: the order in which locale fragments are accumulated
wenzelm@22126
   640
has changed.  This enables to override declarations from fragments due
wenzelm@22126
   641
to interpretations -- for example, unwanted simp rules.
ballarin@19931
   642
ballarin@23920
   643
* Isar/locales: interpretation in theories and proof contexts has been
ballarin@23920
   644
extended.  One may now specify (and prove) equations, which are
ballarin@23920
   645
unfolded in interpreted theorems.  This is useful for replacing
ballarin@23920
   646
defined concepts (constants depending on locale parameters) by
ballarin@23920
   647
concepts already existing in the target context.  Example:
ballarin@23920
   648
ballarin@23920
   649
  interpretation partial_order ["op <= :: [int, int] => bool"]
ballarin@23920
   650
    where "partial_order.less (op <=) (x::int) y = (x < y)"
ballarin@23920
   651
wenzelm@24800
   652
Typically, the constant `partial_order.less' is created by a
wenzelm@24800
   653
definition specification element in the context of locale
wenzelm@24800
   654
partial_order.
wenzelm@24800
   655
wenzelm@24859
   656
* Method "induct": improved internal context management to support
wenzelm@24800
   657
local fixes and defines on-the-fly. Thus explicit meta-level
wenzelm@24800
   658
connectives !!  and ==> are rarely required anymore in inductive goals
wenzelm@24800
   659
(using object-logic connectives for this purpose has been long
wenzelm@24800
   660
obsolete anyway). Common proof patterns are explained in
wenzelm@25177
   661
src/HOL/Induct/Common_Patterns.thy, see also
wenzelm@25177
   662
src/HOL/Isar_examples/Puzzle.thy and src/HOL/Lambda for realistic
wenzelm@25177
   663
examples.
wenzelm@24606
   664
wenzelm@24859
   665
* Method "induct": improved handling of simultaneous goals. Instead of
wenzelm@24606
   666
introducing object-level conjunction, the statement is now split into
wenzelm@24606
   667
several conclusions, while the corresponding symbolic cases are nested
wenzelm@24606
   668
accordingly. INCOMPATIBILITY, proofs need to be structured explicitly,
wenzelm@25177
   669
see src/HOL/Induct/Common_Patterns.thy, for example.
wenzelm@24606
   670
wenzelm@24859
   671
* Method "induct": mutual induction rules are now specified as a list
wenzelm@24800
   672
of rule sharing the same induction cases. HOL packages usually provide
wenzelm@24606
   673
foo_bar.inducts for mutually defined items foo and bar (e.g. inductive
wenzelm@24859
   674
predicates/sets or datatypes). INCOMPATIBILITY, users need to specify
wenzelm@24859
   675
mutual induction rules differently, i.e. like this:
wenzelm@18506
   676
wenzelm@18506
   677
  (induct rule: foo_bar.inducts)
wenzelm@18506
   678
  (induct set: foo bar)
wenzelm@24859
   679
  (induct pred: foo bar)
wenzelm@18506
   680
  (induct type: foo bar)
wenzelm@18506
   681
wenzelm@18506
   682
The ML function ProjectRule.projections turns old-style rules into the
wenzelm@18506
   683
new format.
wenzelm@18506
   684
wenzelm@24859
   685
* Method "coinduct": dual of induction, see
wenzelm@18399
   686
src/HOL/Library/Coinductive_List.thy for various examples.
wenzelm@18399
   687
wenzelm@24859
   688
* Method "cases", "induct", "coinduct": the ``(open)'' option is
wenzelm@24859
   689
considered a legacy feature.
wenzelm@24859
   690
wenzelm@20919
   691
* Attribute "symmetric" produces result with standardized schematic
wenzelm@20919
   692
variables (index 0).  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@20919
   693
wenzelm@22126
   694
* Simplifier: by default the simplifier trace only shows top level
wenzelm@22126
   695
rewrites now. That is, trace_simp_depth_limit is set to 1 by
wenzelm@22126
   696
default. Thus there is less danger of being flooded by the trace. The
wenzelm@22126
   697
trace indicates where parts have been suppressed.
nipkow@18674

wenzelm@18536
   699
* Provers/classical: removed obsolete classical version of elim_format
wenzelm@18536
   700
attribute; classical elim/dest rules are now treated uniformly when
wenzelm@18536
   701
manipulating the claset.
wenzelm@18536
   702
wenzelm@18694
   703
* Provers/classical: stricter checks to ensure that supplied intro,
wenzelm@18694
   704
dest and elim rules are well-formed; dest and elim rules must have at
wenzelm@18694
   705
least one premise.
wenzelm@18694
   706
wenzelm@18694
   707
* Provers/classical: attributes dest/elim/intro take an optional
wenzelm@18695
   708
weight argument for the rule (just as the Pure versions).  Weights are
wenzelm@18696
   709
ignored by automated tools, but determine the search order of single
wenzelm@18694
   710
rule steps.
paulson@18557
   711
wenzelm@18536
   712
* Syntax: input syntax now supports dummy variable binding "%_. b",
wenzelm@18536
   713
where the body does not mention the bound variable.  Note that dummy
wenzelm@18536
   714
patterns implicitly depend on their context of bounds, which makes
wenzelm@18536
   715
"{_. _}" match any set comprehension as expected.  Potential
wenzelm@18536
   716
INCOMPATIBILITY -- parse translations need to cope with syntactic
wenzelm@18536
   717
constant "_idtdummy" in the binding position.
wenzelm@18536
   718
wenzelm@18536
   719
* Syntax: removed obsolete syntactic constant "_K" and its associated
wenzelm@18536
   720
parse translation.  INCOMPATIBILITY -- use dummy abstraction instead,
wenzelm@18536
   721
for example "A -> B" => "Pi A (%_. B)".
wenzelm@17779
   722
wenzelm@20582
   723
* Pure: 'class_deps' command visualizes the subclass relation, using
wenzelm@20582
   724
the graph browser tool.
wenzelm@20582
   725
wenzelm@24800
   726
* Pure: 'print_theory' now suppresses certain internal declarations by

INCOMPATIBILITY.  Adaptions may be required in the following cases:
haftmann@25184
   780
haftmann@25184
   781
a) User-defined constants using any of the names "plus", "minus",
haftmann@25184
   782
"times", "less" or "less_eq". The standard syntax translations for
haftmann@25184
   783
"+", "-" and "*" may go wrong.  INCOMPATIBILITY: use more specific
haftmann@25184
   784
names.
haftmann@25184
   785
haftmann@25184
   786
b) Variables named "plus", "minus", "times", "less", "less_eq"
haftmann@25184
   787
INCOMPATIBILITY: use more specific names.
haftmann@25184
   788
haftmann@25184
   789
c) Permutative equations (e.g. "a + b = b + a")
haftmann@25184
   790
Since the change of names also changes the order of terms, permutative
haftmann@25184
   791
rewrite rules may get applied in a different order. Experience shows
haftmann@25184
   792
that this is rarely the case (only two adaptions in the whole Isabelle
haftmann@25184
   793
distribution).  INCOMPATIBILITY: rewrite proofs
haftmann@25184
   794
haftmann@25184
   795
d) ML code directly refering to constant names
haftmann@25184
   796
This in general only affects hand-written proof tactics, simprocs and
haftmann@25184
   797

* New class "default" with associated constant "default".
haftmann@25184
   801
haftmann@25184
   802
* Function "sgn" is now overloaded and available on int, real, complex
haftmann@25184
   803
(and other numeric types), using class "sgn".  Two possible defs of
haftmann@25184
   804
sgn are given as equational assumptions in the classes sgn_if and
haftmann@25184
   805
sgn_div_norm; ordered_idom now also inherits from sgn_if.
haftmann@25184
   806
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
   807
haftmann@25184
   808
* Locale "partial_order" now unified with class "order" (cf. theory
haftmann@25184
   809
Orderings), added parameter "less".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
   810
haftmann@25184
   811
* Renamings in classes "order" and "linorder": facts "refl", "trans" and
haftmann@25184
   812
"cases" to "order_refl", "order_trans" and "linorder_cases", to avoid
haftmann@25184
   813
clashes with HOL "refl" and "trans".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
   814
haftmann@25184
   815
* Classes "order" and "linorder": potential INCOMPATIBILITY due to
haftmann@25184
   816
changed order of proof goals in instance proofs.
haftmann@25184
   817
haftmann@25184
   818
* The transitivity reasoner for partial and linear orders is set up
haftmann@25184
   819
for classes "order" and "linorder".  Instances of the reasoner are available
haftmann@25184
   820
in all contexts importing or interpreting the corresponding locales.
haftmann@25184
   821
Method "order" invokes the reasoner separately; the reasoner
haftmann@25184
   822
is also integrated with the Simplifier as a solver.  Diagnostic
haftmann@25184
   823
command 'print_orders' shows the available instances of the reasoner
haftmann@25184
   824
in the current context.
haftmann@25184

haftmann@25184
   826
* Localized monotonicity predicate in theory "Orderings"; integrated
haftmann@25184
   827
lemmas max_of_mono and min_of_mono with this predicate.
haftmann@25184
   828
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
   829
haftmann@25184
   830
* Formulation of theorem "dense" changed slightly due to integration
haftmann@25184
   831
with new class dense_linear_order.
haftmann@25184
   832
haftmann@25184
   833
* Uniform lattice theory development in HOL.
haftmann@25184
   834
haftmann@25184
   835
    constants "meet" and "join" now named "inf" and "sup"
haftmann@25184

    constant "Meet" now named "Inf"
haftmann@25184
   837
haftmann@25184
   838
    classes "meet_semilorder" and "join_semilorder" now named

   839
      "lower_semilattice" and "upper_semilattice"
haftmann@25184
   840
    class "lorder" now named "lattice"
haftmann@25184
   841
    class "comp_lat" now named "complete_lattice"
haftmann@25184
   842
haftmann@25184
   843
    Instantiation of lattice classes allows explicit definitions
haftmann@25184
   844
    for "inf" and "sup" operations (or "Inf" and "Sup" for complete lattices).

haftmann@24993
   979
  - Code_Integer represents HOL integers by big integer literals in target
haftmann@23850
   980
    languages.
haftmann@24993
   981
  - Code_Char represents HOL characters by character literals in target
haftmann@23850
   982
    languages.
haftmann@24993
   983
  - Code_Char_chr like Code_Char, but also offers treatment of character
haftmann@24993
   984
    codes; includes Code_Integer.
wenzelm@24800
   985
  - Executable_Set allows to generate code for finite sets using lists.
wenzelm@24800
   986
  - Executable_Rat implements rational numbers as triples (sign, enumerator,
haftmann@23850
   987
    denominator).
wenzelm@24800
   988
  - Executable_Real implements a subset of real numbers, namly those
haftmann@23850
   989
    representable by rational numbers.
wenzelm@24800
   990
  - Efficient_Nat implements natural numbers by integers, which in general will
haftmann@23850
   991
    result in higher efficency; pattern matching with 0/Suc is eliminated;
haftmann@24993
   992
    includes Code_Integer.
haftmann@24993
   993
  - Code_Index provides an additional datatype index which is mapped to
haftmann@24993
   994
    target-language built-in integers.
haftmann@24993
   995
  - Code_Message provides an additional datatype message_string} which is isomorphic to
haftmann@24993
   996
    strings; messages are mapped to target-language strings.

  1047
  INCOMPATIBILITIES:
berghofe@23783
  1048
berghofe@23783
  1049
  - Since declaration and definition of inductive sets or predicates
wenzelm@24800
  1050
    is no longer separated, abbreviations involving the newly
wenzelm@24800
  1051
    introduced sets or predicates must be specified together with the
wenzelm@24800
  1052
    introduction rules after the 'where' keyword (see above), rather
wenzelm@24800
  1053
    than before the actual inductive definition.
wenzelm@24800
  1054
wenzelm@24800
  1055
  - The variables in induction and elimination rules are now
wenzelm@24800
  1056
    quantified in the order of their occurrence in the introduction
wenzelm@24800
  1057
    rules, rather than in alphabetical order. Since this may break
wenzelm@24800
  1058
    some proofs, these proofs either have to be repaired, e.g. by
wenzelm@24800
  1059
    reordering the variables a_i_1 ... a_i_{k_i} in Isar 'case'
wenzelm@24800
  1060
    statements of the form
berghofe@23783
  1061
berghofe@23783
  1062
      case (rule_i a_i_1 ... a_i_{k_i})
berghofe@23783
  1063
berghofe@23783
  1064
    or the old order of quantification has to be restored by explicitly adding
berghofe@23783
  1065
    meta-level quantifiers in the introduction rules, i.e.
berghofe@23783
  1066
berghofe@23783
  1067
      | rule_i: "!!a_i_1 ... a_i_{k_i}. ... ==> p z_1 ... z_m t_i_1 ... t_i_n"
berghofe@23783
  1068
berghofe@23783
  1069
  - The format of the elimination rules is now
berghofe@23783
  1070
berghofe@23783
  1071
      p z_1 ... z_m x_1 ... x_n ==>

berghofe@23783
  1076
berghofe@23783
  1077
      (x_1, ..., x_n) : s z_1 ... z_m ==>

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

        ==> ... ==> P
berghofe@23783
  1086
wenzelm@24800
  1087
    This may require terms in goals to be expanded to n-tuples
wenzelm@24800
  1088
    (e.g. using case_tac or simplification with the split_paired_all
wenzelm@24800
  1089
    rule) before the above elimination rule is applicable.
wenzelm@24800
  1090
wenzelm@24800
  1091
  - The elimination or case analysis rules for (mutually) inductive
wenzelm@24800
  1092
    sets or predicates are now called "p_1.cases" ... "p_k.cases". The
wenzelm@24800
  1093
    list of rules "p_1_..._p_k.elims" is no longer available.
berghofe@23783
  1094
krauss@25198
  1095
* New package "function"/"fun" for general recursive functions,
krauss@25198
  1096
supporting mutual and nested recursion, definitions in local contexts,
krauss@25198
  1097
more general pattern matching and partiality. See HOL/ex/Fundefs.thy
krauss@25198
  1098
for small examples, and the separate tutorial on the function
krauss@25198
  1099
package. The old recdef "package" is still available as before, but
krauss@25198
  1100
users are encouraged to use the new package.
krauss@25198
  1101
krauss@25198
  1102
* Method "lexicographic_order" automatically synthesizes termination
krauss@25198
  1103
relations as lexicographic combinations of size measures. 
krauss@25198
  1104
wenzelm@24800
  1105
* Case-expressions allow arbitrary constructor-patterns (including
wenzelm@24800
  1106
"_") and take their order into account, like in functional
wenzelm@24800
  1107
programming.  Internally, this is translated into nested
wenzelm@24800
  1108
case-expressions; missing cases are added and mapped to the predefined
wenzelm@24800
  1109
constant "undefined". In complicated cases printing may no longer show
wenzelm@24800
  1110
the original input but the internal form. Lambda-abstractions allow
wenzelm@24800
  1111
the same form of pattern matching: "% pat1 => e1 | ..." is an
wenzelm@24800
  1112
abbreviation for "%x. case x of pat1 => e1 | ..." where x is a new
wenzelm@24800
  1113
variable.
nipkow@23564
  1114
huffman@23468
  1115
* IntDef: The constant "int :: nat => int" has been removed; now "int"
wenzelm@24800
  1116
is an abbreviation for "of_nat :: nat => int". The simplification
wenzelm@24800
  1117
rules for "of_nat" have been changed to work like "int" did
wenzelm@24800
  1118
previously.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY:
huffman@23468
  1119
  - "of_nat (Suc m)" simplifies to "1 + of_nat m" instead of "of_nat m + 1"
huffman@23468
  1120
  - of_nat_diff and of_nat_mult are no longer default simp rules
huffman@23377

  1122
* Method "algebra" solves polynomial equations over (semi)rings using
wenzelm@24800
  1123
Groebner bases. The (semi)ring structure is defined by locales and the
wenzelm@24800
  1124
tool setup depends on that generic context. Installing the method for
wenzelm@24800
  1125
a specific type involves instantiating the locale and possibly adding
wenzelm@24800
  1126
declarations for computation on the coefficients.  The method is
wenzelm@24800
  1127
already instantiated for natural numbers and for the axiomatic class
wenzelm@24800
  1128
of idoms with numerals.  See also the paper by Chaieb and Wenzel at
wenzelm@24800
  1129

wenzelm@24800
  1130
architecture of context-aware proof-tools.
wenzelm@24800
  1131
wenzelm@25033
  1132
* Method "ferrack" implements quantifier elimination over
wenzelm@25033
  1133
special-purpose dense linear orders using locales (analogous to
wenzelm@25033
  1134
"algebra"). The method is already installed for class
wenzelm@25033
  1135
{ordered_field,recpower,number_ring} which subsumes real, hyperreal,
wenzelm@25033
  1136
rat, etc.
wenzelm@25033
  1137
wenzelm@24800
  1138
* Former constant "List.op @" now named "List.append".  Use ML
wenzelm@24800
  1139
antiquotations @{const_name List.append} or @{term " ... @ ... "} to
wenzelm@24800
  1140
circumvent possible incompatibilities when working on ML level.
wenzelm@24800
  1141
haftmann@24996
  1142
* primrec: missing cases mapped to "undefined" instead of "arbitrary".
haftmann@22845
  1143
wenzelm@24800
  1144
* New function listsum :: 'a list => 'a for arbitrary monoids.
wenzelm@24800
  1145
Special syntax: "SUM x <- xs. f x" (and latex variants)
wenzelm@24800
  1146
wenzelm@24800
  1147
* New syntax for Haskell-like list comprehension (input only), eg.
wenzelm@25177
  1148
[(x,y). x <- xs, y <- ys, x ~= y], see also src/HOL/List.thy.
wenzelm@24800
  1149
wenzelm@24800
  1150
* The special syntax for function "filter" has changed from [x :
wenzelm@24800
  1151
xs. P] to [x <- xs. P] to avoid an ambiguity caused by list
wenzelm@24800
  1152
comprehension syntax, and for uniformity.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  1153
wenzelm@24800
  1154
* [a..b] is now defined for arbitrary linear orders.  It used to be
wenzelm@24800
  1155
defined on nat only, as an abbreviation for [a..<Suc b]
wenzelm@24800
  1156
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  1157
wenzelm@24800
  1158
* Renamed lemma "set_take_whileD"  to "set_takeWhileD".
wenzelm@24800
  1159
wenzelm@25177
  1160
* New functions "sorted" and "sort" in src/HOL/List.thy.
wenzelm@24800
  1161
wenzelm@24800
  1162
* New lemma collection field_simps (an extension of ring_simps) for
wenzelm@24800
  1163
manipulating (in)equations involving division. Multiplies with all
wenzelm@24800
  1164
denominators that can be proved to be non-zero (in equations) or
wenzelm@24800
  1165
positive/negative (in inequations).
nipkow@23480

nipkow@23480
  1167
* Lemma collections ring_eq_simps, group_eq_simps and ring_distrib
wenzelm@24800
  1168
have been improved and renamed to ring_simps, group_simps and
wenzelm@24800
  1169
ring_distribs.  Removed lemmas field_xyz in theory Ring_and_Field
wenzelm@24800
  1170
because they were subsumed by lemmas xyz.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  1171
wenzelm@25177
  1172
* Theory Library/Commutative_Ring: switched from recdef to function
wenzelm@24800
  1173
package; constants add, mul, pow now curried.  Infix syntax for
wenzelm@24800
  1174
algebraic operations.
haftmann@22735
  1175
wenzelm@24800
  1176
* Dropped redundant lemma def_imp_eq in favor of meta_eq_to_obj_eq.
haftmann@22218
  1177
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@22218
  1178
wenzelm@24800
  1179
* Dropped redundant lemma if_def2 in favor of if_bool_eq_conj.
haftmann@22218
  1180
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@22218
  1181
wenzelm@22126
  1182
* HOL/records: generalised field-update to take a function on the
wenzelm@22126
  1183
field rather than the new value: r(|A := x|) is translated to A_update
wenzelm@22126
  1184
(K x) r The K-combinator that is internally used is called K_record.
schirmer@21226
  1185
INCOMPATIBILITY: Usage of the plain update functions has to be
schirmer@21226
  1186
adapted.
schirmer@21226
  1187
 
wenzelm@24800
  1188
* Class "semiring_0" now contains annihilation axioms x * 0 = 0 and 0
wenzelm@24800
  1189
* x = 0, which are required for a semiring.  Richer structures do not
wenzelm@24800
  1190
inherit from semiring_0 anymore, because this property is a theorem
wenzelm@24800
  1191
there, not an axiom.  INCOMPATIBILITY: In instances of semiring_0,
wenzelm@24800
  1192
there is more to prove, but this is mostly trivial.
wenzelm@24800
  1193
wenzelm@24800
  1194
* Class "recpower" is generalized to arbitrary monoids, not just
wenzelm@24800
  1195
commutative semirings.  INCOMPATIBILITY: may need to incorporate
haftmann@25163
  1196
commutativity or semiring properties additionally.
haftmann@21215
  1197
haftmann@21099
  1198
* Constant "List.list_all2" in List.thy now uses authentic syntax.
wenzelm@24800
  1199
INCOMPATIBILITY: translations containing list_all2 may go wrong,
wenzelm@24800
  1200
better use 'abbreviation'.
wenzelm@24800
  1201
wenzelm@24800
  1202
* Renamed constant "List.op mem" to "List.member".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  1203
wenzelm@22126
  1204
* Numeral syntax: type 'bin' which was a mere type copy of 'int' has
wenzelm@24800
  1205
been abandoned in favour of plain 'int'.  INCOMPATIBILITY --
wenzelm@22126
  1206
significant changes for setting up numeral syntax for types:
wenzelm@24800
  1207
  - New constants Numeral.pred and Numeral.succ instead
haftmann@20485
  1208
      of former Numeral.bin_pred and Numeral.bin_succ.
haftmann@20485
  1209
  - Use integer operations instead of bin_add, bin_mult and so on.
haftmann@20485
  1210
  - Numeral simplification theorems named Numeral.numeral_simps instead of Bin_simps.
haftmann@20485
  1211
  - ML structure Bin_Simprocs now named Int_Numeral_Base_Simprocs.
haftmann@20485
  1212
wenzelm@25177
  1213
See src/HOL/Integ/IntArith.thy for an example setup.
wenzelm@25177
  1214
wenzelm@25177
  1215
* Command 'normal_form' computes the normal form of a term that may
wenzelm@25177
  1216
contain free variables.  For example ``normal_form "rev [a, b, c]"''
wenzelm@25177
  1217
produces ``[b, c, a]'' (without proof).  This command is suitable for
wenzelm@25177
  1218
heavy-duty computations because the functions are compiled to ML
wenzelm@25177
  1219
first.  Correspondingly, a method "normalization" is provided.  See
wenzelm@25177
  1220
further src/HOL/ex/NormalForm.thy and src/Tools/nbe.ML.
nipkow@19895
  1221
wenzelm@17996
  1222
* Alternative iff syntax "A <-> B" for equality on bool (with priority
wenzelm@17996
  1223
25 like -->); output depends on the "iff" print_mode, the default is
wenzelm@17996
  1224
"A = B" (with priority 50).
wenzelm@17996
  1225
wenzelm@21265
  1226
* Relations less (<) and less_eq (<=) are also available on type bool.
wenzelm@21265
  1227
Modified syntax to disallow nesting without explicit parentheses,
wenzelm@24800
  1228
e.g. "(x < y) < z" or "x < (y < z)", but NOT "x < y < z".  Potential
wenzelm@24800
  1229
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@21265
  1230
nipkow@18674
  1231
* "LEAST x:A. P" expands to "LEAST x. x:A & P" (input only).
nipkow@18674
  1232
krauss@20716
  1233
* Relation composition operator "op O" now has precedence 75 and binds
krauss@20716
  1234
stronger than union and intersection. INCOMPATIBILITY.
krauss@20716
  1235
wenzelm@22126
  1236
* The old set interval syntax "{m..n(}" (and relatives) has been
wenzelm@22126
  1237
removed.  Use "{m..<n}" (and relatives) instead.
nipkow@19377
  1238
wenzelm@17865
  1239
* In the context of the assumption "~(s = t)" the Simplifier rewrites
wenzelm@24800
  1240
"t = s" to False (by simproc "neq").  INCOMPATIBILITY, consider using
wenzelm@24800
  1241
``declare [[simproc del: neq]]''.
wenzelm@24800
  1242
wenzelm@24800
  1243
* Simplifier: "m dvd n" where m and n are numbers is evaluated to
wenzelm@24800
  1244
True/False.
wenzelm@24800
  1245
wenzelm@24800
  1246
* Theorem Cons_eq_map_conv no longer declared as "simp".
nipkow@19211
  1247
ballarin@19279
  1248
* Theorem setsum_mult renamed to setsum_right_distrib.
ballarin@19279
  1249
nipkow@19211
  1250
* Prefer ex1I over ex_ex1I in single-step reasoning, e.g. by the
wenzelm@22126
  1251
``rule'' method.
wenzelm@22126
  1252
wenzelm@24800
  1253
* Reimplemented methods "sat" and "satx", with several improvements:
wenzelm@24800
  1254
goals no longer need to be stated as "<prems> ==> False", equivalences
wenzelm@24800
  1255
(i.e. "=" on type bool) are handled, variable names of the form
wenzelm@24800
  1256
"lit_<n>" are no longer reserved, significant speedup.
wenzelm@24800
  1257
wenzelm@24800
  1258
* Methods "sat" and "satx" can now replay MiniSat proof traces.
wenzelm@22126
  1259
zChaff is still supported as well.
wenzelm@22126
  1260
wenzelm@22126
  1261
* 'inductive' and 'datatype': provide projections of mutual rules,
wenzelm@22126
  1262
bundled as foo_bar.inducts;
wenzelm@22126
  1263
wenzelm@22126
  1264
* Library: moved theories Parity, GCD, Binomial, Infinite_Set to
wenzelm@22126
  1265
Library.
wenzelm@21256
  1266
wenzelm@21256
  1267
* Library: moved theory Accessible_Part to main HOL.
wenzelm@19572
  1268
wenzelm@18446
  1269
* Library: added theory Coinductive_List of potentially infinite lists
wenzelm@18446
  1270
as greatest fixed-point.
wenzelm@18399
  1271
wenzelm@19254

* Library: added theory AssocList which implements (finite) maps as
schirmer@19252
  1273
association lists.
webertj@17809
  1274
wenzelm@24800
  1275
* Method "evaluation" solves goals (i.e. a boolean expression)
wenzelm@24800
  1276
efficiently by compiling it to ML.  The goal is "proved" (via an
wenzelm@24800
  1277
oracle) if it evaluates to True.
wenzelm@20807
  1278
wenzelm@20807
  1279
* Linear arithmetic now splits certain operators (e.g. min, max, abs)
wenzelm@24800
  1280
also when invoked by the simplifier.  This results in the Simplifier
wenzelm@24800
  1281
being more powerful on arithmetic goals.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  1282
Configuration option fast_arith_split_limit=0 recovers the old

  1283
behavior.

* Support for hex (0x20) and binary (0b1001) numerals.
wenzelm@19254
  1286
wenzelm@20807
  1287
* New method: reify eqs (t), where eqs are equations for an
wenzelm@20807
  1288
interpretation I :: 'a list => 'b => 'c and t::'c is an optional
wenzelm@20807
  1289
parameter, computes a term s::'b and a list xs::'a list and proves the
wenzelm@20807
  1290
theorem I xs s = t. This is also known as reification or quoting. The
wenzelm@20807
  1291
resulting theorem is applied to the subgoal to substitute t with I xs
wenzelm@20807
  1292
s.  If t is omitted, the subgoal itself is reified.
wenzelm@20807
  1293
wenzelm@20807
  1294
* New method: reflection corr_thm eqs (t). The parameters eqs and (t)
wenzelm@20807
  1295
are as explained above. corr_thm is a theorem for I vs (f t) = I vs t,
wenzelm@20807
  1296
where f is supposed to be a computable function (in the sense of code
wenzelm@20807
  1297
generattion). The method uses reify to compute s and xs as above then
wenzelm@20807
  1298
applies corr_thm and uses normalization by evaluation to "prove" f s =
wenzelm@20807
  1299
r and finally gets the theorem t = r, which is again applied to the
wenzelm@25177
  1300
subgoal. An Example is available in src/HOL/ex/ReflectionEx.thy.
wenzelm@25177
  1301
wenzelm@25177

available in src/HOL/ex/ReflectionEx.thy
wenzelm@20807
  1304
wenzelm@25397
  1305
* HOL-Statespace: ``State Spaces: The Locale Way'' introduces a
schirmer@25409
  1306
command 'statespace' that is similar to 'record', but introduces an
wenzelm@25397
  1307
abstract specification based on the locale infrastructure instead of
wenzelm@25397
  1308
HOL types.  This leads to extra flexibility in composing state spaces,
wenzelm@25397
  1309
in particular multiple inheritance and renaming of components.

Nonnegativity side conditions have been removed from many lemmas, so

  1427
ML_Context.trace enabled.
wenzelm@22152
  1428
wenzelm@19032
  1429
* Pure/General/table.ML: the join operations now works via exceptions
wenzelm@24706
  1430
DUP/SAME instead of type option. This is simpler in simple cases, and
wenzelm@19081
  1431
admits slightly more efficient complex applications.
wenzelm@18446

wenzelm@24800
  1433
* Pure: 'advanced' translation functions (parse_translation etc.) now
wenzelm@24800
  1434
use Context.generic instead of just theory.
wenzelm@24800
  1435
wenzelm@18642
  1436
* Pure: datatype Context.generic joins theory/Proof.context and
wenzelm@18644
  1437
provides some facilities for code that works in either kind of
wenzelm@18642
  1438
context, notably GenericDataFun for uniform theory and proof data.
wenzelm@18642
  1439
wenzelm@18737
  1440
* Pure: simplified internal attribute type, which is now always
wenzelm@24706
  1441
Context.generic * thm -> Context.generic * thm. Global (theory) vs.
wenzelm@24706
  1442
local (Proof.context) attributes have been discontinued, while
wenzelm@24706
  1443
minimizing code duplication. Thm.rule_attribute and

declarations and definitions.
wenzelm@19006
  1448
wenzelm@24800
  1449
* Context data interfaces (Theory/Proof/GenericDataFun): removed
wenzelm@24800
  1450
name/print, uninitialized data defaults to ad-hoc copy of empty value,
wenzelm@24800
  1451
init only required for impure data. INCOMPATIBILITY: empty really need
wenzelm@24800
  1452
to be empty (no dependencies on theory content!)
wenzelm@24800
  1453
wenzelm@19508
  1454
* Pure/kernel: consts certification ignores sort constraints given in
wenzelm@24800
  1455
signature declarations. (This information is not relevant to the
wenzelm@24800
  1456
logic, but only for type inference.) SIGNIFICANT INTERNAL CHANGE,

  1457
potential INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@19508
  1458
wenzelm@19508
  1459
* Pure: axiomatic type classes are now purely definitional, with
wenzelm@19508
  1460
explicit proofs of class axioms and super class relations performed
wenzelm@24706
  1461
internally. See Pure/axclass.ML for the main internal interfaces --
wenzelm@19508
  1462
notably AxClass.define_class supercedes AxClass.add_axclass, and
wenzelm@24706
  1463
AxClass.axiomatize_class/classrel/arity supersede
wenzelm@19508
  1464
Sign.add_classes/classrel/arities.
wenzelm@19508
  1465
wenzelm@19006
  1466
* Pure/Isar: Args/Attrib parsers operate on Context.generic --
wenzelm@19006
  1467
global/local versions on theory vs. Proof.context have been
wenzelm@19006
  1468
discontinued; Attrib.syntax and Method.syntax have been adapted
wenzelm@19006
  1469
accordingly.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt parser expressions for
wenzelm@19006
  1470
attributes, methods, etc.
wenzelm@18642
  1471
wenzelm@18446
  1472
* Pure: several functions of signature "... -> theory -> theory * ..."
wenzelm@18446
  1473
have been reoriented to "... -> theory -> ... * theory" in order to
wenzelm@18446
  1474
allow natural usage in combination with the ||>, ||>>, |-> and
wenzelm@18446
  1475
fold_map combinators.
haftmann@18051
  1476
wenzelm@21647
  1477
* Pure: official theorem names (closed derivations) and additional
wenzelm@21647
  1478
comments (tags) are now strictly separate.  Name hints -- which are
wenzelm@21647
  1479
maintained as tags -- may be attached any time without affecting the
wenzelm@21647
  1480
derivation.
wenzelm@21647
  1481
wenzelm@18020
  1482
* Pure: primitive rule lift_rule now takes goal cterm instead of an
wenzelm@18145
  1483
actual goal state (thm).  Use Thm.lift_rule (Thm.cprem_of st i) to
wenzelm@18020
  1484
achieve the old behaviour.
wenzelm@18020
  1485
wenzelm@18020
  1486
* Pure: the "Goal" constant is now called "prop", supporting a
wenzelm@18020
  1487
slightly more general idea of ``protecting'' meta-level rule
wenzelm@18020
  1488
statements.
wenzelm@18020
  1489
wenzelm@20040
  1490
* Pure: Logic.(un)varify only works in a global context, which is now
wenzelm@20040
  1491
enforced instead of silently assumed.  INCOMPATIBILITY, may use
wenzelm@20040
  1492
Logic.legacy_(un)varify as temporary workaround.
wenzelm@20040
  1493
wenzelm@20090
  1494
* Pure: structure Name provides scalable operations for generating
wenzelm@20090
  1495
internal variable names, notably Name.variants etc.  This replaces
wenzelm@20090
  1496
some popular functions from term.ML:
wenzelm@20090
  1497
wenzelm@20090
  1498
  Term.variant		->  Name.variant
wenzelm@24800
  1499
  Term.variantlist	->  Name.variant_list
wenzelm@20090
  1500
  Term.invent_names	->  Name.invent_list
wenzelm@20090
  1501
wenzelm@20090
  1502
Note that low-level renaming rarely occurs in new code -- operations
wenzelm@20090
  1503
from structure Variable are used instead (see below).
wenzelm@20090
  1504
wenzelm@20040
  1505
* Pure: structure Variable provides fundamental operations for proper
wenzelm@20040
  1506
treatment of fixed/schematic variables in a context.  For example,
wenzelm@20040
  1507
Variable.import introduces fixes for schematics of given facts and
wenzelm@20040
  1508
Variable.export reverses the effect (up to renaming) -- this replaces
wenzelm@20040
  1509
various freeze_thaw operations.
wenzelm@20040
  1510
wenzelm@18567
  1511
* Pure: structure Goal provides simple interfaces for
wenzelm@17981
  1512
init/conclude/finish and tactical prove operations (replacing former
wenzelm@20040
  1513
Tactic.prove).  Goal.prove is the canonical way to prove results
wenzelm@20040
  1514
within a given context; Goal.prove_global is a degraded version for
wenzelm@20040
  1515
theory level goals, including a global Drule.standard.  Note that
wenzelm@20040
  1516
OldGoals.prove_goalw_cterm has long been obsolete, since it is
wenzelm@20040
  1517
ill-behaved in a local proof context (e.g. with local fixes/assumes or
wenzelm@20040
  1518
in a locale context).
wenzelm@17981
  1519
wenzelm@24706
  1520
* Pure/Syntax: generic interfaces for parsing (Syntax.parse_term etc.)
wenzelm@24706
  1521
and type checking (Syntax.check_term etc.), with common combinations
wenzelm@24706
  1522
(Syntax.read_term etc.). These supersede former Sign.read_term etc.
wenzelm@24706
  1523
which are considered legacy and await removal.
wenzelm@24706
  1524
wenzelm@24920
  1525
* Pure/Syntax: generic interfaces for type unchecking
wenzelm@24920
  1526
(Syntax.uncheck_terms etc.) and unparsing (Syntax.unparse_term etc.),
wenzelm@24920
  1527
with common combinations (Syntax.pretty_term, Syntax.string_of_term
wenzelm@24920
  1528
etc.).  Former Sign.pretty_term, Sign.string_of_term etc. are still
wenzelm@24924
  1529
available for convenience, but refer to the very same operations using
wenzelm@24924
  1530
a mere theory instead of a full context.
wenzelm@24920
  1531
wenzelm@18815
  1532
* Isar: simplified treatment of user-level errors, using exception

  1533
ERROR of string uniformly.  Function error now merely raises ERROR,
wenzelm@18686
  1534
without any side effect on output channels.  The Isar toplevel takes
wenzelm@18686
  1535
care of proper display of ERROR exceptions.  ML code may use plain
wenzelm@18686
  1536
handle/can/try; cat_error may be used to concatenate errors like this:
wenzelm@18686
  1537
wenzelm@18686
  1538
  ... handle ERROR msg => cat_error msg "..."
wenzelm@18686
  1539
wenzelm@18686
  1540
Toplevel ML code (run directly or through the Isar toplevel) may be
wenzelm@18687
  1541
embedded into the Isar toplevel with exception display/debug like
wenzelm@18687
  1542
this:

* Isar: theory setup now has type (theory -> theory), instead of a
wenzelm@18722

wenzelm@18722

ProofContext.debug/verbose flags.
wenzelm@18815
  1556
wenzelm@18815
  1557
* Isar: Toplevel.theory_to_proof admits transactions that modify the
wenzelm@18815
  1558
theory before entering a proof state.  Transactions now always see a
wenzelm@18815
  1559
quasi-functional intermediate checkpoint, both in interactive and
wenzelm@18590
  1560
batch mode.
wenzelm@18567
  1561
wenzelm@24867
  1562
* Isar: simplified interfaces for outer syntax.  Renamed
wenzelm@24867
  1563
OuterSyntax.add_keywords to OuterSyntax.keywords.  Removed
wenzelm@24867
  1564
OuterSyntax.add_parsers -- this functionality is now included in
wenzelm@24867
  1565
OuterSyntax.command etc.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24867
  1566
wenzelm@17878
  1567
* Simplifier: the simpset of a running simplification process now
wenzelm@17878
  1568
contains a proof context (cf. Simplifier.the_context), which is the
wenzelm@17878
  1569
very context that the initial simpset has been retrieved from (by
wenzelm@17890
  1570
simpset_of/local_simpset_of).  Consequently, all plug-in components
wenzelm@17878
  1571
(solver, looper etc.) may depend on arbitrary proof data.
wenzelm@17878
  1572
wenzelm@17878
  1573
* Simplifier.inherit_context inherits the proof context (plus the
wenzelm@17878
  1574
local bounds) of the current simplification process; any simproc
wenzelm@17878
  1575
etc. that calls the Simplifier recursively should do this!  Removed
wenzelm@17878
  1576
former Simplifier.inherit_bounds, which is already included here --
wenzelm@17890
  1577
INCOMPATIBILITY.  Tools based on low-level rewriting may even have to
wenzelm@17890
  1578
specify an explicit context using Simplifier.context/theory_context.
wenzelm@17878
  1579
wenzelm@17878
  1580
* Simplifier/Classical Reasoner: more abstract interfaces
wenzelm@17878
  1581
change_simpset/claset for modifying the simpset/claset reference of a
wenzelm@17878
  1582
theory; raw versions simpset/claset_ref etc. have been discontinued --
wenzelm@17878
  1583
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17878
  1584
wenzelm@18540
  1585
* Provers: more generic wrt. syntax of object-logics, avoid hardwired
wenzelm@18540
  1586
"Trueprop" etc.

* Support for parallel execution, using native multicore support of
wenzelm@24800
  1602
Poly/ML 5.1.  The theory loader exploits parallelism when processing
wenzelm@24800
  1603
independent theories, according to the given theory header
wenzelm@24800
  1604
specifications. The maximum number of worker threads is specified via
wenzelm@24800
  1605
usedir option -M or the "max-threads" setting in Proof General. A
wenzelm@24800
  1606
speedup factor of 1.5--3.5 can be expected on a 4-core machine, and up
wenzelm@24800
  1607
to 6 on a 8-core machine.  User-code needs to observe certain
wenzelm@24800
  1608
guidelines for thread-safe programming, see appendix A in the Isar

*** General ***
wenzelm@14655
  1617
nipkow@15130
  1618
* Theory headers: the new header syntax for Isar theories is
nipkow@15130
  1619
nipkow@15130
  1620
  theory <name>
wenzelm@16234
  1621
  imports <theory1> ... <theoryN>
wenzelm@16234
  1622
  uses <file1> ... <fileM>
nipkow@15130
  1623
  begin
nipkow@15130
  1624
wenzelm@16234
  1625
where the 'uses' part is optional.  The previous syntax
wenzelm@16234
  1626
wenzelm@16234
  1627
  theory <name> = <theory1> + ... + <theoryN>:
wenzelm@16234
  1628
wenzelm@16717
  1629
will disappear in the next release.  Use isatool fixheaders to convert
wenzelm@16717
  1630
existing theory files.  Note that there is no change in ancient
wenzelm@17371
  1631
non-Isar theories now, but these will disappear soon.
nipkow@15130
  1632
berghofe@15475
  1633
* Theory loader: parent theories can now also be referred to via
wenzelm@16234
  1634
relative and absolute paths.
wenzelm@16234
  1635
wenzelm@17408
  1636
* Command 'find_theorems' searches for a list of criteria instead of a
wenzelm@17408
  1637
list of constants. Known criteria are: intro, elim, dest, name:string,
wenzelm@17408
  1638
simp:term, and any term. Criteria can be preceded by '-' to select
wenzelm@17408
  1639
theorems that do not match. Intro, elim, dest select theorems that
wenzelm@17408
  1640
match the current goal, name:s selects theorems whose fully qualified
wenzelm@17408
  1641
name contain s, and simp:term selects all simplification rules whose
wenzelm@17408
  1642
lhs match term.  Any other term is interpreted as pattern and selects
wenzelm@17408
  1643
all theorems matching the pattern. Available in ProofGeneral under
wenzelm@17408
  1644
'ProofGeneral -> Find Theorems' or C-c C-f.  Example:
wenzelm@16234
  1645
wenzelm@17275
  1646
  C-c C-f (100) "(_::nat) + _ + _" intro -name: "HOL."
wenzelm@16234
  1647
wenzelm@16234
  1648
prints the last 100 theorems matching the pattern "(_::nat) + _ + _",
wenzelm@16234
  1649
matching the current goal as introduction rule and not having "HOL."
wenzelm@16234
  1650
in their name (i.e. not being defined in theory HOL).
wenzelm@16013
  1651
wenzelm@17408
  1652
* Command 'thms_containing' has been discontinued in favour of
wenzelm@17408
  1653
'find_theorems'; INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17408
  1654
wenzelm@17385
  1655
* Communication with Proof General is now 8bit clean, which means that
wenzelm@17385
  1656
Unicode text in UTF-8 encoding may be used within theory texts (both
wenzelm@17408
  1657
formal and informal parts).  Cf. option -U of the Isabelle Proof
wenzelm@17538
  1658
General interface.  Here are some simple examples (cf. src/HOL/ex):

wenzelm@17425
  1663
* Improved efficiency of the Simplifier and, to a lesser degree, the
wenzelm@17425
  1664
Classical Reasoner.  Typical big applications run around 2 times
wenzelm@17425
  1665

*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@15703
  1669
wenzelm@16234
  1670
* Commands 'display_drafts' and 'print_drafts' perform simple output
wenzelm@16234
  1671
of raw sources.  Only those symbols that do not require additional
wenzelm@16234
  1672
LaTeX packages (depending on comments in isabellesym.sty) are
wenzelm@16234
  1673
displayed properly, everything else is left verbatim.  isatool display
wenzelm@16234
  1674
and isatool print are used as front ends (these are subject to the
wenzelm@16234
  1675
DVI/PDF_VIEWER and PRINT_COMMAND settings, respectively).
wenzelm@16234
  1676
wenzelm@17047
  1677
* Command tags control specific markup of certain regions of text,
wenzelm@17047
  1678
notably folding and hiding.  Predefined tags include "theory" (for
wenzelm@17047
  1679
theory begin and end), "proof" for proof commands, and "ML" for
wenzelm@17047
  1680
commands involving ML code; the additional tags "visible" and
wenzelm@17047
  1681
"invisible" are unused by default.  Users may give explicit tag
wenzelm@17047
  1682
specifications in the text, e.g. ''by %invisible (auto)''.  The
wenzelm@17047
  1683
interpretation of tags is determined by the LaTeX job during document
wenzelm@17047
  1684
preparation: see option -V of isatool usedir, or options -n and -t of
wenzelm@17047
  1685
isatool document, or even the LaTeX macros \isakeeptag, \isafoldtag,
wenzelm@17047
  1686
\isadroptag.
wenzelm@17047
  1687
wenzelm@17047
  1688
Several document versions may be produced at the same time via isatool
wenzelm@17047
  1689
usedir (the generated index.html will link all of them).  Typical
wenzelm@17047
  1690
specifications include ''-V document=theory,proof,ML'' to present
wenzelm@17047
  1691
theory/proof/ML parts faithfully, ''-V outline=/proof,/ML'' to fold
wenzelm@17047
  1692
proof and ML commands, and ''-V mutilated=-theory,-proof,-ML'' to omit
wenzelm@17047
  1693
these parts without any formal replacement text.  The Isabelle site
wenzelm@17047
  1694
default settings produce ''document'' and ''outline'' versions as
wenzelm@17047
  1695
specified above.
wenzelm@16234
  1696
haftmann@17402
  1697
* Several new antiquotations:
wenzelm@15979
  1698
wenzelm@15979
  1699
  @{term_type term} prints a term with its type annotated;
wenzelm@15979
  1700
wenzelm@15979
  1701
  @{typeof term} prints the type of a term;
wenzelm@15979
  1702
wenzelm@16234
  1703
  @{const const} is the same as @{term const}, but checks that the
wenzelm@16234
  1704
  argument is a known logical constant;
wenzelm@15979
  1705
wenzelm@15979
  1706
  @{term_style style term} and @{thm_style style thm} print a term or
wenzelm@16234
  1707
  theorem applying a "style" to it
wenzelm@16234
  1708
wenzelm@17117
  1709
  @{ML text}
wenzelm@17117
  1710
wenzelm@16234
  1711
Predefined styles are 'lhs' and 'rhs' printing the lhs/rhs of
wenzelm@16234
  1712
definitions, equations, inequations etc., 'concl' printing only the
schirmer@17393
  1713
conclusion of a meta-logical statement theorem, and 'prem1' .. 'prem19'
wenzelm@16234
  1714
to print the specified premise.  TermStyle.add_style provides an ML
wenzelm@16234
  1715
interface for introducing further styles.  See also the "LaTeX Sugar"
wenzelm@17117
  1716
document practical applications.  The ML antiquotation prints
wenzelm@17117
  1717
type-checked ML expressions verbatim.
wenzelm@16234
  1718
wenzelm@17259
  1719
* Markup commands 'chapter', 'section', 'subsection', 'subsubsection',
wenzelm@17259
  1720
and 'text' support optional locale specification '(in loc)', which
wenzelm@17269
  1721
specifies the default context for interpreting antiquotations.  For
wenzelm@17269
  1722
example: 'text (in lattice) {* @{thm inf_assoc}*}'.
wenzelm@17259
  1723
wenzelm@17259
  1724
* Option 'locale=NAME' of antiquotations specifies an alternative
wenzelm@17259
  1725
context interpreting the subsequent argument.  For example: @{thm
wenzelm@17269
  1726
[locale=lattice] inf_assoc}.
wenzelm@17259
  1727
wenzelm@17097
  1728
* Proper output of proof terms (@{prf ...} and @{full_prf ...}) within
wenzelm@17097
  1729
a proof context.
wenzelm@17097
  1730
wenzelm@17097
  1731
* Proper output of antiquotations for theory commands involving a
wenzelm@17097
  1732
proof context (such as 'locale' or 'theorem (in loc) ...').
wenzelm@17097
  1733
wenzelm@17193
  1734
* Delimiters of outer tokens (string etc.) now produce separate LaTeX
wenzelm@17193
  1735
macros (\isachardoublequoteopen, isachardoublequoteclose etc.).
wenzelm@17193
  1736
wenzelm@17193
  1737
* isatool usedir: new option -C (default true) controls whether option
wenzelm@17193
  1738
-D should include a copy of the original document directory; -C false
wenzelm@17193
  1739
prevents unwanted effects such as copying of administrative CVS data.

wenzelm@16234
  1742
*** Pure ***
wenzelm@16234
  1743
wenzelm@16234
  1744
* Considerably improved version of 'constdefs' command.  Now performs
wenzelm@16234
  1745
automatic type-inference of declared constants; additional support for
wenzelm@16234
  1746
local structure declarations (cf. locales and HOL records), see also
wenzelm@16234
  1747
isar-ref manual.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY: need to observe strictly
wenzelm@16234
  1748
sequential dependencies of definitions within a single 'constdefs'
wenzelm@16234
  1749
section; moreover, the declared name needs to be an identifier.  If
wenzelm@16234
  1750
all fails, consider to fall back on 'consts' and 'defs' separately.
wenzelm@16234
  1751
wenzelm@16234
  1752
* Improved indexed syntax and implicit structures.  First of all,
wenzelm@16234
  1753
indexed syntax provides a notational device for subscripted
wenzelm@16234
  1754
application, using the new syntax \<^bsub>term\<^esub> for arbitrary
wenzelm@16234
  1755
expressions.  Secondly, in a local context with structure
wenzelm@16234
  1756
declarations, number indexes \<^sub>n or the empty index (default
wenzelm@16234
  1757
number 1) refer to a certain fixed variable implicitly; option
wenzelm@16234
  1758
show_structs controls printing of implicit structures.  Typical
wenzelm@16234
  1759
applications of these concepts involve record types and locales.
wenzelm@16234
  1760
wenzelm@16234
  1761
* New command 'no_syntax' removes grammar declarations (and
wenzelm@16234
  1762
translations) resulting from the given syntax specification, which is
wenzelm@16234
  1763
interpreted in the same manner as for the 'syntax' command.
wenzelm@16234
  1764
wenzelm@16234
  1765
* 'Advanced' translation functions (parse_translation etc.) may depend
wenzelm@16234
  1766
on the signature of the theory context being presently used for
wenzelm@16234
  1767
parsing/printing, see also isar-ref manual.
wenzelm@16234
  1768
wenzelm@16856
  1769
* Improved 'oracle' command provides a type-safe interface to turn an
wenzelm@16856
  1770
ML expression of type theory -> T -> term into a primitive rule of
wenzelm@16856
  1771
type theory -> T -> thm (i.e. the functionality of Thm.invoke_oracle
wenzelm@16856
  1772
is already included here); see also FOL/ex/IffExample.thy;
wenzelm@16856
  1773
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@16856
  1774
wenzelm@17275
  1775
* axclass: name space prefix for class "c" is now "c_class" (was "c"
wenzelm@17275
  1776
before); "cI" is no longer bound, use "c.intro" instead.
wenzelm@17275
  1777
INCOMPATIBILITY.  This change avoids clashes of fact bindings for
wenzelm@17275
  1778
axclasses vs. locales.
wenzelm@17275
  1779
wenzelm@16234
  1780
* Improved internal renaming of symbolic identifiers -- attach primes
wenzelm@16234
  1781
instead of base 26 numbers.
wenzelm@16234
  1782
wenzelm@16234
  1783
* New flag show_question_marks controls printing of leading question
wenzelm@16234
  1784
marks in schematic variable names.
wenzelm@16234
  1785
wenzelm@16234
  1786
* In schematic variable names, *any* symbol following \<^isub> or
wenzelm@16234
  1787
\<^isup> is now treated as part of the base name.  For example, the
wenzelm@16234
  1788
following works without printing of awkward ".0" indexes:
wenzelm@16234
  1789
wenzelm@16234
  1790
  lemma "x\<^isub>1 = x\<^isub>2 ==> x\<^isub>2 = x\<^isub>1"
wenzelm@16234
  1791
    by simp
wenzelm@16234
  1792
wenzelm@16234
  1793
* Inner syntax includes (*(*nested*) comments*).
wenzelm@16234
  1794
wenzelm@17548
  1795
* Pretty printer now supports unbreakable blocks, specified in mixfix
wenzelm@16234
  1796
annotations as "(00...)".
wenzelm@16234
  1797
wenzelm@16234
  1798
* Clear separation of logical types and nonterminals, where the latter
wenzelm@16234
  1799
may only occur in 'syntax' specifications or type abbreviations.
wenzelm@16234
  1800
Before that distinction was only partially implemented via type class
wenzelm@16234
  1801
"logic" vs. "{}".  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY in rare cases of improper

  1802
use of 'types'/'consts' instead of 'nonterminals'/'syntax'.  Some very
wenzelm@16234
  1803
exotic syntax specifications may require further adaption
wenzelm@17691
  1804
(e.g. Cube/Cube.thy).
wenzelm@16234
  1805
wenzelm@16234
  1806
* Removed obsolete type class "logic", use the top sort {} instead.
wenzelm@16234
  1807
Note that non-logical types should be declared as 'nonterminals'
wenzelm@16234
  1808
rather than 'types'.  INCOMPATIBILITY for new object-logic
wenzelm@16234
  1809
specifications.
wenzelm@16234
  1810
ballarin@17095
  1811
* Attributes 'induct' and 'cases': type or set names may now be
ballarin@17095
  1812
locally fixed variables as well.
ballarin@17095
  1813
wenzelm@16234
  1814
* Simplifier: can now control the depth to which conditional rewriting
wenzelm@16234
  1815
is traced via the PG menu Isabelle -> Settings -> Trace Simp Depth
wenzelm@16234
  1816
Limit.
wenzelm@16234
  1817
wenzelm@16234
  1818
* Simplifier: simplification procedures may now take the current
wenzelm@16234
  1819
simpset into account (cf. Simplifier.simproc(_i) / mk_simproc
wenzelm@16234
  1820
interface), which is very useful for calling the Simplifier
wenzelm@16234
  1821
recursively.  Minor INCOMPATIBILITY: the 'prems' argument of simprocs
wenzelm@16234
  1822
is gone -- use prems_of_ss on the simpset instead.  Moreover, the
wenzelm@16234
  1823
low-level mk_simproc no longer applies Logic.varify internally, to
wenzelm@16234
  1824
allow for use in a context of fixed variables.
wenzelm@16234
  1825
wenzelm@16234
  1826
* thin_tac now works even if the assumption being deleted contains !!
wenzelm@16234

* Method 'rules' has been renamed to 'iprover'. INCOMPATIBILITY.
nipkow@17590
  1831
wenzelm@16234
  1832
* Reorganized bootstrapping of the Pure theories; CPure is now derived
wenzelm@16234
  1833
from Pure, which contains all common declarations already.  Both
wenzelm@16234
  1834
theories are defined via plain Isabelle/Isar .thy files.
wenzelm@16234
  1835
INCOMPATIBILITY: elements of CPure (such as the CPure.intro /
wenzelm@16234
  1836
CPure.elim / CPure.dest attributes) now appear in the Pure name space;
wenzelm@16234
  1837
use isatool fixcpure to adapt your theory and ML sources.
wenzelm@16234
  1838
wenzelm@16234
  1839
* New syntax 'name(i-j, i-, i, ...)' for referring to specific
wenzelm@16234
  1840
selections of theorems in named facts via index ranges.
wenzelm@16234
  1841
wenzelm@17097

* 'print_theorems': in theory mode, really print the difference
wenzelm@17097
  1843
wrt. the last state (works for interactive theory development only),
wenzelm@17097
  1844
in proof mode print all local facts (cf. 'print_facts');
wenzelm@17097
  1845
wenzelm@17397
  1846
* 'hide': option '(open)' hides only base names.
wenzelm@17397
  1847
wenzelm@17275
  1848
* More efficient treatment of intermediate checkpoints in interactive
wenzelm@17275
  1849
theory development.
wenzelm@17275

wenzelm@17664
  1852
generation) and code_library (modular code generation, ML structures
wenzelm@17664
  1853
for each theory).  INCOMPATIBILITY: new keywords 'file' and 'contains'
wenzelm@17664
  1854
must be quoted when used as identifiers.
wenzelm@17664
  1855
wenzelm@17664
  1856
* New 'value' command for reading, evaluating and printing terms using
wenzelm@17664
  1857
the code generator.  INCOMPATIBILITY: command keyword 'value' must be
wenzelm@17664
  1858
quoted when used as identifier.

*** Locales ***
ballarin@17095
  1862
wenzelm@17385
  1863
* New commands for the interpretation of locale expressions in
wenzelm@17385
  1864
theories (1), locales (2) and proof contexts (3).  These generate
wenzelm@17385
  1865
proof obligations from the expression specification.  After the
wenzelm@17385
  1866
obligations have been discharged, theorems of the expression are added
wenzelm@17385
  1867
to the theory, target locale or proof context.  The synopsis of the
wenzelm@17385
  1868
commands is a follows:
wenzelm@17385
  1869
ballarin@17095
  1870
  (1) interpretation expr inst
ballarin@17095
  1871
  (2) interpretation target < expr
ballarin@17095
  1872
  (3) interpret expr inst
wenzelm@17385
  1873
ballarin@17095
  1874
Interpretation in theories and proof contexts require a parameter
ballarin@17095
  1875
instantiation of terms from the current context.  This is applied to
wenzelm@17385
  1876
specifications and theorems of the interpreted expression.
wenzelm@17385
  1877
Interpretation in locales only permits parameter renaming through the
wenzelm@17385
  1878
locale expression.  Interpretation is smart in that interpretations
wenzelm@17385
  1879
that are active already do not occur in proof obligations, neither are
wenzelm@17385
  1880
instantiated theorems stored in duplicate.  Use 'print_interps' to
wenzelm@17385
  1881
inspect active interpretations of a particular locale.  For details,
ballarin@17436
  1882
see the Isar Reference manual.  Examples can be found in
ballarin@17436
  1883
HOL/Finite_Set.thy and HOL/Algebra/UnivPoly.thy.
wenzelm@16234
  1884
wenzelm@16234
  1885
INCOMPATIBILITY: former 'instantiate' has been withdrawn, use
wenzelm@16234
  1886
'interpret' instead.
wenzelm@16234
  1887
wenzelm@17385
  1888
* New context element 'constrains' for adding type constraints to
wenzelm@17385
  1889
parameters.
wenzelm@17385
  1890
wenzelm@17385
  1891
* Context expressions: renaming of parameters with syntax
wenzelm@17385
  1892
redeclaration.
ballarin@17095
  1893
ballarin@17095
  1894
* Locale declaration: 'includes' disallowed.
ballarin@17095
  1895
wenzelm@16234
  1896
* Proper static binding of attribute syntax -- i.e. types / terms /
wenzelm@16234
  1897
facts mentioned as arguments are always those of the locale definition
wenzelm@16234
  1898
context, independently of the context of later invocations.  Moreover,
wenzelm@16234
  1899
locale operations (renaming and type / term instantiation) are applied
wenzelm@16234
  1900
to attribute arguments as expected.
wenzelm@16234
  1901
wenzelm@16234
  1902
INCOMPATIBILITY of the ML interface: always pass Attrib.src instead of
wenzelm@16234
  1903
actual attributes; rare situations may require Attrib.attribute to
wenzelm@16234
  1904
embed those attributes into Attrib.src that lack concrete syntax.
wenzelm@16234
  1905
Attribute implementations need to cooperate properly with the static
wenzelm@16234
  1906
binding mechanism.  Basic parsers Args.XXX_typ/term/prop and
wenzelm@16234
  1907
Attrib.XXX_thm etc. already do the right thing without further
wenzelm@16234
  1908
intervention.  Only unusual applications -- such as "where" or "of"
wenzelm@16234
  1909
(cf. src/Pure/Isar/attrib.ML), which process arguments depending both
wenzelm@16234
  1910
on the context and the facts involved -- may have to assign parsed
wenzelm@16234
  1911
values to argument tokens explicitly.
wenzelm@16234
  1912
wenzelm@16234
  1913
* Changed parameter management in theorem generation for long goal
wenzelm@16234
  1914
statements with 'includes'.  INCOMPATIBILITY: produces a different
wenzelm@16234
  1915
theorem statement in rare situations.
wenzelm@16234
  1916
ballarin@17228
  1917
* Locale inspection command 'print_locale' omits notes elements.  Use
ballarin@17228

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

wenzelm@16234
  1924
single-step rewriting: it now works in bound variable contexts. New is
wenzelm@16234
  1925
'subst (asm)', for rewriting an assumption.  INCOMPATIBILITY: may
wenzelm@16234
  1926
rewrite a different subterm than the original subst method, which is

still available as 'simplesubst'.
wenzelm@16234

reflexive-transitive closure of relations.

wenzelm@16234
  1937
wenzelm@16234
  1938
* Provers/simplifier.ML has been moved to Pure, where Simplifier.setup

The symbol \<some> is displayed as the alternative epsilon of LaTeX
wenzelm@16234

and x-symbol; use option '-m epsilon' to get it actually printed.
wenzelm@16234
  1952
Moreover, the mathematically important symbolic identifier \<epsilon>
wenzelm@16234
  1953
becomes available as variable, constant etc.  INCOMPATIBILITY,
wenzelm@16234
  1954
wenzelm@16234
  1955
* "x > y" abbreviates "y < x" and "x >= y" abbreviates "y <= x".
wenzelm@16234
  1956
Similarly for all quantifiers: "ALL x > y" etc.  The x-symbol for >=
wenzelm@17371
  1957
is \<ge>. New transitivity rules have been added to HOL/Orderings.thy to
avigad@17016
  1958
support corresponding Isar calculations.
wenzelm@16234
  1959
wenzelm@16234

  1971
wenzelm@16234
  1972
The old syntax is still supported but will disappear in the next
wenzelm@16234
  1973
release.  For conversion use the following Emacs search and replace
wenzelm@16234
  1974
patterns (these are not perfect but work quite well):

wenzelm@17389
  1983
* Theory Finite_Set: changed the syntax for 'setsum', summation over
wenzelm@16234
  1984
finite sets: "setsum (%x. e) A", which used to be "\<Sum>x:A. e", is
wenzelm@17371
  1985
now either "SUM x:A. e" or "\<Sum>x \<in> A. e". The bound variable can
paulson@17189
  1986
be a tuple pattern.
wenzelm@16234
  1987

wenzelm@16234
  1994
wenzelm@16234
  1995
The latter form "\<Sum>x < k. e" used to be based on a separate

(insert F x)'.
wenzelm@16234
  2001
wenzelm@16234

wenzelm@16234
  2010
* Datatype induction via method 'induct' now preserves the name of the
wenzelm@16234
  2011
induction variable. For example, when proving P(xs::'a list) by
wenzelm@16234
  2012
induction on xs, the induction step is now P(xs) ==> P(a#xs) rather
wenzelm@16234

wenzelm@16234
  2016
* Reworked implementation of records.  Improved scalability for
wenzelm@16234
  2017
records with many fields, avoiding performance problems for type
wenzelm@16234
  2018
inference. Records are no longer composed of nested field types, but
wenzelm@16234
  2019
of nested extension types. Therefore the record type only grows linear
wenzelm@16234
  2020
in the number of extensions and not in the number of fields.  The
wenzelm@16234
  2021
top-level (users) view on records is preserved.  Potential
wenzelm@16234
  2022
INCOMPATIBILITY only in strange cases, where the theory depends on the
wenzelm@16234
  2023
old record representation. The type generated for a record is called
wenzelm@16234

quite long.
wenzelm@16234

wenzelm@16234
  2031
New simproc record_upd_simproc for simplification of multiple record

  2032
updates enabled by default.  Moreover, trivial updates are also
wenzelm@16234
  2033
removed: r(|x := x r|) = r.  INCOMPATIBILITY: old proofs break

  2034
occasionally, since simplification is more powerful by default.

type-variables in the term.
wenzelm@17275
  2038
wenzelm@16234
  2039
* Simplifier: automatically reasons about transitivity chains
wenzelm@16234
  2040
involving "trancl" (r^+) and "rtrancl" (r^*) by setting up tactics
wenzelm@16234
  2041
provided by Provers/trancl.ML as additional solvers.  INCOMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@16234
  2042
old proofs break occasionally as simplification may now solve more
wenzelm@16234
  2043
goals than previously.
wenzelm@16234
  2044
wenzelm@16234
  2045
* Simplifier: converts x <= y into x = y if assumption y <= x is
wenzelm@16234
  2046
present.  Works for all partial orders (class "order"), in particular
wenzelm@16234
  2047
numbers and sets.  For linear orders (e.g. numbers) it treats ~ x < y
wenzelm@16234
  2048
just like y <= x.
wenzelm@16234
  2049
wenzelm@16234
  2050
* Simplifier: new simproc for "let x = a in f x".  If a is a free or
wenzelm@16234
  2051
bound variable or a constant then the let is unfolded.  Otherwise
wenzelm@16234
  2052
first a is simplified to b, and then f b is simplified to g. If
wenzelm@16234
  2053
possible we abstract b from g arriving at "let x = b in h x",
wenzelm@16234
  2054
otherwise we unfold the let and arrive at g.  The simproc can be
wenzelm@16234
  2055
enabled/disabled by the reference use_let_simproc.  Potential

supported.  Patterns may include the constants cpair, spair, up, sinl,
wenzelm@17533
  2304
sinr, or any data constructor defined by the domain package. The given
wenzelm@17533
  2305
equations are proven as rewrite rules. See HOLCF/ex/Fixrec_ex.thy for
wenzelm@17533
  2306
syntax and examples.
wenzelm@17533
  2307
wenzelm@17533
  2308
* New commands 'cpodef' and 'pcpodef' for defining predicate subtypes
wenzelm@17533
  2309
of cpo and pcpo types. Syntax is exactly like the 'typedef' command,
wenzelm@17533
  2310
but the proof obligation additionally includes an admissibility
wenzelm@17533
  2311
requirement. The packages generate instances of class cpo or pcpo,
wenzelm@17533
  2312
with continuity and strictness theorems for Rep and Abs.

wenzelm@16234
  2327
* ZF/ex: theories Group and Ring provide examples in abstract algebra,
wenzelm@16234
  2328
including the First Isomorphism Theorem (on quotienting by the kernel
wenzelm@16234
  2329
of a homomorphism).
wenzelm@15089
  2330
wenzelm@15089
  2331
* ZF/Simplifier: install second copy of type solver that actually
wenzelm@16234
  2332
makes use of TC rules declared to Isar proof contexts (or locales);
wenzelm@16234
  2333
the old version is still required for ML proof scripts.

*** ML ***
wenzelm@15703
  2343
haftmann@21339
  2344
* Pure/library.ML: added ##>, ##>>, #>> -- higher-order counterparts
haftmann@21339
  2345
for ||>, ||>>, |>>,
haftmann@21339
  2346
wenzelm@15973
  2347
* Pure/library.ML no longer defines its own option datatype, but uses
wenzelm@16234
  2348
that of the SML basis, which has constructors NONE and SOME instead of
wenzelm@16234
  2349
None and Some, as well as exception Option.Option instead of OPTION.
wenzelm@16234
  2350
The functions the, if_none, is_some, is_none have been adapted
wenzelm@16234
  2351
accordingly, while Option.map replaces apsome.
wenzelm@15973
  2352
wenzelm@16860
  2353
* Pure/library.ML: the exception LIST has been given up in favour of
wenzelm@16860
  2354
the standard exceptions Empty and Subscript, as well as
wenzelm@16860
  2355
Library.UnequalLengths.  Function like Library.hd and Library.tl are
wenzelm@16860
  2356
superceded by the standard hd and tl functions etc.
wenzelm@16860
  2357
wenzelm@16860
  2358
A number of basic list functions are no longer exported to the ML
wenzelm@16860
  2359
toplevel, as they are variants of predefined functions.  The following
wenzelm@16234
  2360
suggests how one can translate existing code:
wenzelm@15973
  2361
wenzelm@15973
  2362
    rev_append xs ys = List.revAppend (xs, ys)
wenzelm@15973
  2363
    nth_elem (i, xs) = List.nth (xs, i)
wenzelm@15973
  2364
    last_elem xs = List.last xs
wenzelm@15973
  2365
    flat xss = List.concat xss
wenzelm@16234
  2366
    seq fs = List.app fs
wenzelm@15973
  2367
    partition P xs = List.partition P xs
wenzelm@15973
  2368
    mapfilter f xs = List.mapPartial f xs
wenzelm@15973
  2369
wenzelm@16860
  2370
* Pure/library.ML: several combinators for linear functional
wenzelm@16860
  2371
transformations, notably reverse application and composition:
wenzelm@16860
  2372
wenzelm@17371
  2373
  x |> f                f #> g
wenzelm@17371
  2374
  (x, y) |-> f          f #-> g
wenzelm@16860
  2375
haftmann@17495
  2376
* Pure/library.ML: introduced/changed precedence of infix operators:
haftmann@17495
  2377
haftmann@17495
  2378
  infix 1 |> |-> ||> ||>> |>> |>>> #> #->;
haftmann@17495
  2379
  infix 2 ?;
haftmann@17495
  2380
  infix 3 o oo ooo oooo;
haftmann@17495
  2381
  infix 4 ~~ upto downto;
haftmann@17495
  2382
haftmann@17495
  2383
Maybe INCOMPATIBILITY when any of those is used in conjunction with other
haftmann@17495
  2384
infix operators.
haftmann@17495
  2385
wenzelm@17408
  2386
* Pure/library.ML: natural list combinators fold, fold_rev, and
haftmann@16869
  2387
fold_map support linear functional transformations and nesting.  For
wenzelm@16860
  2388
example:
wenzelm@16860
  2389
wenzelm@16860
  2390
  fold f [x1, ..., xN] y =
wenzelm@16860
  2391
    y |> f x1 |> ... |> f xN
wenzelm@16860
  2392
wenzelm@16860
  2393
  (fold o fold) f [xs1, ..., xsN] y =
wenzelm@16860
  2394
    y |> fold f xs1 |> ... |> fold f xsN
wenzelm@16860
  2395
wenzelm@16860
  2396
  fold f [x1, ..., xN] =
wenzelm@16860
  2397
    f x1 #> ... #> f xN
wenzelm@16860
  2398
wenzelm@16860
  2399
  (fold o fold) f [xs1, ..., xsN] =
wenzelm@16860
  2400
    fold f xs1 #> ... #> fold f xsN
wenzelm@16860
  2401
wenzelm@17408
  2402
* Pure/library.ML: the following selectors on type 'a option are
wenzelm@17408
  2403
available:
wenzelm@17408
  2404
wenzelm@17408
  2405
  the:               'a option -> 'a  (*partial*)
wenzelm@17408
  2406
  these:             'a option -> 'a  where 'a = 'b list
haftmann@17402
  2407
  the_default: 'a -> 'a option -> 'a
haftmann@17402
  2408
  the_list:          'a option -> 'a list
haftmann@17402
  2409
wenzelm@17408
  2410
* Pure/General: structure AList (cf. Pure/General/alist.ML) provides
wenzelm@17408
  2411
basic operations for association lists, following natural argument
haftmann@17564
  2412
order; moreover the explicit equality predicate passed here avoids
haftmann@17495
  2413
potentially expensive polymorphic runtime equality checks.
haftmann@17495
  2414
The old functions may be expressed as follows:
wenzelm@17408
  2415
wenzelm@17408
  2416
  assoc = uncurry (AList.lookup (op =))
wenzelm@17408
  2417
  assocs = these oo AList.lookup (op =)
wenzelm@17408
  2418
  overwrite = uncurry (AList.update (op =)) o swap
wenzelm@17408
  2419
haftmann@17564
  2420
* Pure/General: structure AList (cf. Pure/General/alist.ML) provides
haftmann@17564
  2421
haftmann@17564
  2422
  val make: ('a -> 'b) -> 'a list -> ('a * 'b) list
haftmann@17564
  2423
  val find: ('a * 'b -> bool) -> ('c * 'b) list -> 'a -> 'c list
haftmann@17564
  2424
haftmann@17564
  2425
replacing make_keylist and keyfilter (occassionally used)
haftmann@17564
  2426
Naive rewrites:
haftmann@17564
  2427
haftmann@17564
  2428
  make_keylist = AList.make
haftmann@17564
  2429
  keyfilter = AList.find (op =)
haftmann@17564
  2430
haftmann@17564
  2431
* eq_fst and eq_snd now take explicit equality parameter, thus
haftmann@17564
  2432
  avoiding eqtypes. Naive rewrites:
haftmann@17564
  2433
haftmann@17564
  2434
    eq_fst = eq_fst (op =)
haftmann@17564
  2435
    eq_snd = eq_snd (op =)
haftmann@17564
  2436
haftmann@17564
  2437
* Removed deprecated apl and apr (rarely used).
haftmann@17564
  2438
  Naive rewrites:
haftmann@17564
  2439
haftmann@17564
  2440
    apl (n, op) =>>= curry op n
haftmann@17564
  2441
    apr (op, m) =>>= fn n => op (n, m)
haftmann@17564
  2442
wenzelm@17408
  2443
* Pure/General: structure OrdList (cf. Pure/General/ord_list.ML)
wenzelm@17408
  2444
provides a reasonably efficient light-weight implementation of sets as
wenzelm@17408
  2445
lists.
wenzelm@17408
  2446
wenzelm@17408
  2447
* Pure/General: generic tables (cf. Pure/General/table.ML) provide a
wenzelm@17408
  2448
few new operations; existing lookup and update are now curried to
wenzelm@17408
  2449
follow natural argument order (for use with fold etc.);
wenzelm@17408
  2450
INCOMPATIBILITY, use (uncurry Symtab.lookup) etc. as last resort.
wenzelm@17408
  2451
wenzelm@17408
  2452
* Pure/General: output via the Isabelle channels of
wenzelm@17408
  2453
writeln/warning/error etc. is now passed through Output.output, with a
wenzelm@17408
  2454
hook for arbitrary transformations depending on the print_mode
wenzelm@17408
  2455
(cf. Output.add_mode -- the first active mode that provides a output
wenzelm@17408
  2456
function wins).  Already formatted output may be embedded into further
wenzelm@17408
  2457
text via Output.raw; the result of Pretty.string_of/str_of and derived
wenzelm@17408
  2458
functions (string_of_term/cterm/thm etc.) is already marked raw to
wenzelm@17408
  2459
accommodate easy composition of diagnostic messages etc.  Programmers
wenzelm@17408
  2460
rarely need to care about Output.output or Output.raw at all, with
wenzelm@17408
  2461
some notable exceptions: Output.output is required when bypassing the
wenzelm@17408
  2462
standard channels (writeln etc.), or in token translations to produce
wenzelm@17408
  2463
properly formatted results; Output.raw is required when capturing
wenzelm@17408
  2464
already output material that will eventually be presented to the user
wenzelm@17408
  2465
a second time.  For the default print mode, both Output.output and
wenzelm@17408
  2466
Output.raw have no effect.
wenzelm@17408
  2467
wenzelm@17408
  2468
* Pure/General: Output.time_accumulator NAME creates an operator ('a
wenzelm@17408
  2469
-> 'b) -> 'a -> 'b to measure runtime and count invocations; the
wenzelm@17408
  2470
cumulative results are displayed at the end of a batch session.
wenzelm@17408
  2471
wenzelm@17408
  2472
* Pure/General: File.sysify_path and File.quote_sysify path have been
wenzelm@17408
  2473
replaced by File.platform_path and File.shell_path (with appropriate
wenzelm@17408
  2474
hooks).  This provides a clean interface for unusual systems where the
wenzelm@17408
  2475
internal and external process view of file names are different.
wenzelm@17408
  2476
wenzelm@16689
  2477
* Pure: more efficient orders for basic syntactic entities: added
wenzelm@16689
  2478
fast_string_ord, fast_indexname_ord, fast_term_ord; changed sort_ord
wenzelm@16689
  2479
and typ_ord to use fast_string_ord and fast_indexname_ord (term_ord is
wenzelm@16689
  2480
NOT affected); structures Symtab, Vartab, Typtab, Termtab use the fast
wenzelm@16689
  2481
orders now -- potential INCOMPATIBILITY for code that depends on a
wenzelm@16689
  2482
particular order for Symtab.keys, Symtab.dest, etc. (consider using
wenzelm@16689
  2483
Library.sort_strings on result).
wenzelm@16689
  2484
wenzelm@17408
  2485
* Pure/term.ML: combinators fold_atyps, fold_aterms, fold_term_types,
wenzelm@17408
  2486
fold_types traverse types/terms from left to right, observing natural
wenzelm@17408
  2487
argument order.  Supercedes previous foldl_XXX versions, add_frees,
wenzelm@17408
  2488
add_vars etc. have been adapted as well: INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17408
  2489
wenzelm@16151
  2490
* Pure: name spaces have been refined, with significant changes of the
wenzelm@16234
  2491
internal interfaces -- INCOMPATIBILITY.  Renamed cond_extern(_table)
wenzelm@16234
  2492
to extern(_table).  The plain name entry path is superceded by a
wenzelm@16234
  2493
general 'naming' context, which also includes the 'policy' to produce
wenzelm@16234
  2494
a fully qualified name and external accesses of a fully qualified
wenzelm@16234
  2495
name; NameSpace.extend is superceded by context dependent
wenzelm@16234
  2496
Sign.declare_name.  Several theory and proof context operations modify
wenzelm@16234
  2497
the naming context.  Especially note Theory.restore_naming and
wenzelm@16234
  2498
ProofContext.restore_naming to get back to a sane state; note that
wenzelm@16234
  2499
Theory.add_path is no longer sufficient to recover from
wenzelm@16234
  2500
Theory.absolute_path in particular.
wenzelm@16234
  2501
wenzelm@16234
  2502
* Pure: new flags short_names (default false) and unique_names
wenzelm@16234
  2503
(default true) for controlling output of qualified names.  If
wenzelm@16234
  2504
short_names is set, names are printed unqualified.  If unique_names is
wenzelm@16234
  2505
reset, the name prefix is reduced to the minimum required to achieve
wenzelm@16234
  2506
the original result when interning again, even if there is an overlap
wenzelm@16234
  2507
with earlier declarations.
wenzelm@16151
  2508
wenzelm@16456
  2509
* Pure/TheoryDataFun: change of the argument structure; 'prep_ext' is
wenzelm@16456
  2510
now 'extend', and 'merge' gets an additional Pretty.pp argument
wenzelm@16456
  2511
(useful for printing error messages).  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@16456
  2512
wenzelm@16456
  2513
* Pure: major reorganization of the theory context.  Type Sign.sg and
wenzelm@16456
  2514
Theory.theory are now identified, referring to the universal
wenzelm@16456
  2515
Context.theory (see Pure/context.ML).  Actual signature and theory
wenzelm@16456
  2516
content is managed as theory data.  The old code and interfaces were
wenzelm@16456
  2517
spread over many files and structures; the new arrangement introduces
wenzelm@16456
  2518
considerable INCOMPATIBILITY to gain more clarity:
wenzelm@16456
  2519
wenzelm@16456
  2520
  Context -- theory management operations (name, identity, inclusion,
wenzelm@16456
  2521
    parents, ancestors, merge, etc.), plus generic theory data;
wenzelm@16456
  2522
wenzelm@16456
  2523
  Sign -- logical signature and syntax operations (declaring consts,
wenzelm@16456
  2524
    types, etc.), plus certify/read for common entities;
wenzelm@16456
  2525
wenzelm@16456
  2526
  Theory -- logical theory operations (stating axioms, definitions,
wenzelm@16456
  2527
    oracles), plus a copy of logical signature operations (consts,
wenzelm@16456
  2528
    types, etc.); also a few basic management operations (Theory.copy,
wenzelm@16456
  2529
    Theory.merge, etc.)
wenzelm@16456
  2530
wenzelm@16456
  2531
The most basic sign_of operations (Theory.sign_of, Thm.sign_of_thm
wenzelm@16456
  2532
etc.) as well as the sign field in Thm.rep_thm etc. have been retained
wenzelm@16456
  2533
for convenience -- they merely return the theory.
wenzelm@16456
  2534
wenzelm@17193
  2535
* Pure: type Type.tsig is superceded by theory in most interfaces.
wenzelm@17193
  2536
wenzelm@16547
  2537
* Pure: the Isar proof context type is already defined early in Pure
wenzelm@16547
  2538
as Context.proof (note that ProofContext.context and Proof.context are
wenzelm@16547
  2539
aliases, where the latter is the preferred name).  This enables other
wenzelm@16547
  2540
Isabelle components to refer to that type even before Isar is present.
wenzelm@16547
  2541
wenzelm@16373
  2542
* Pure/sign/theory: discontinued named name spaces (i.e. classK,
wenzelm@16373
  2543
typeK, constK, axiomK, oracleK), but provide explicit operations for
wenzelm@16373
  2544
any of these kinds.  For example, Sign.intern typeK is now
wenzelm@16373
  2545
Sign.intern_type, Theory.hide_space Sign.typeK is now
wenzelm@16373
  2546
Theory.hide_types.  Also note that former
wenzelm@16373
  2547
Theory.hide_classes/types/consts are now
wenzelm@16373
  2548
Theory.hide_classes_i/types_i/consts_i, while the non '_i' versions
wenzelm@16373
  2549
internalize their arguments!  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@16373
  2550
wenzelm@16506
  2551
* Pure: get_thm interface (of PureThy and ProofContext) expects
wenzelm@16506
  2552
datatype thmref (with constructors Name and NameSelection) instead of
wenzelm@16506
  2553
plain string -- INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@16506
  2554
wenzelm@16151
  2555
* Pure: cases produced by proof methods specify options, where NONE
wenzelm@16234
  2556
means to remove case bindings -- INCOMPATIBILITY in
wenzelm@16234
  2557
(RAW_)METHOD_CASES.
wenzelm@16151
  2558
wenzelm@16373
  2559
* Pure: the following operations retrieve axioms or theorems from a
wenzelm@16373
  2560
theory node or theory hierarchy, respectively:
wenzelm@16373
  2561
wenzelm@16373
  2562
  Theory.axioms_of: theory -> (string * term) list
wenzelm@16373
  2563
  Theory.all_axioms_of: theory -> (string * term) list
wenzelm@16373
  2564
  PureThy.thms_of: theory -> (string * thm) list
wenzelm@16373

* Isar toplevel: improved diagnostics, mostly for Poly/ML only.

Reference Toplevel.debug (default false) controls detailed printing
wenzelm@17408
  2571
and tracing of low-level exceptions; Toplevel.profiling (default 0)
wenzelm@17408
  2572
controls execution profiling -- set to 1 for time and 2 for space
wenzelm@17408
  2573
(both increase the runtime).

* Isar session: The initial use of ROOT.ML is now always timed,
wenzelm@17408
  2576
i.e. the log will show the actual process times, in contrast to the
wenzelm@17408
  2577
elapsed wall-clock time that the outer shell wrapper produces.

* Simplifier: improved handling of bound variables (nameless
wenzelm@16997
  2580
representation, avoid allocating new strings).  Simprocs that invoke
wenzelm@16997
  2581
the Simplifier recursively should use Simplifier.inherit_bounds to
wenzelm@17720
  2582
avoid local name clashes.  Failure to do so produces warnings
wenzelm@17720
  2583
"Simplifier: renamed bound variable ..."; set Simplifier.debug_bounds
wenzelm@17720
  2584
for further details.

* ML functions legacy_bindings and use_legacy_bindings produce ML fact
wenzelm@17166
  2587
bindings for all theorems stored within a given theory; this may help
wenzelm@17166
  2588
in porting non-Isar theories to Isar ones, while keeping ML proof
wenzelm@17166
  2589
scripts for the time being.

* ML operator HTML.with_charset specifies the charset begin used for
wenzelm@17457
  2592
generated HTML files.  For example:
wenzelm@17457
  2593
wenzelm@17457
  2594
  HTML.with_charset "utf-8" use_thy "Hebrew";
wenzelm@17538
  2595
  HTML.with_charset "utf-8" use_thy "Chinese";
