wenzelm@14655

New in this Isabelle release
wenzelm@14655
     5
----------------------------
wenzelm@14655
     6
wenzelm@14655
     7
*** General ***
wenzelm@14655
     8
wenzelm@14655
     9
* Pure: considerably improved version of 'constdefs' command.  Now
wenzelm@14731
    10
  performs automatic type-inference of declared constants; additional
wenzelm@14731
    11
  support for local structure declarations (cf. locales and HOL
wenzelm@14731
    12
  records), see also isar-ref manual.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY: need
wenzelm@14731
    13
  to observe strictly sequential dependencies of definitions within a
wenzelm@14731
    14
  single 'constdefs' section; moreover, the declared name needs to be
wenzelm@14731
    15
  an identifier.  If all fails, consider to fall back on 'consts' and
wenzelm@14731
    16
  'defs' separately.
wenzelm@14655
    17
wenzelm@14698
    18
* Pure: improved indexed syntax and implicit structures.  First of
wenzelm@14731
    19
  all, indexed syntax provides a notational device for subscripted
wenzelm@14731
    20
  application, using the new syntax \<^bsub>term\<^esub> for arbitrary
wenzelm@14731
    21
  expressions.  Secondly, in a local context with structure
wenzelm@14731
    22
  declarations, number indexes \<^sub>n or the empty index (default
wenzelm@14731
    23
  number 1) refer to a certain fixed variable implicitly; option
wenzelm@14731
    24
  show_structs controls printing of implicit structures.  Typical
wenzelm@14731
    25
  applications of these concepts involve record types and locales.
wenzelm@14731
    26
wenzelm@14795
    27
* Pure: clear separation of logical types and nonterminals, where the
wenzelm@14795
    28
  latter may only occur in 'syntax' specifications or type
wenzelm@14795
    29
  abbreviations.  Before that distinction was only partially
wenzelm@14795
    30
  implemented via type class "logic" vs. "{}".  Potential
wenzelm@14795
    31
  INCOMPATIBILITY in rare cases of improper use of 'types'/'consts'
wenzelm@14795
    32
  instead of 'nonterminals'/'syntax'.  Some very exotic syntax
wenzelm@14816
    33
  specifications may require further adaption (e.g. Cube/Base.thy).
wenzelm@14816
    34
wenzelm@14854
    35
* Pure: removed obsolete type class "logic", use the top sort {}
wenzelm@14854
    36
  instead.  Note that non-logical types should be declared as
wenzelm@14854
    37
  'nonterminals' rather than 'types'.  INCOMPATIBILITY for new
wenzelm@14854
    38
  object-logic specifications.
wenzelm@14854
    39
wenzelm@15022
    40
* Pure: print_tac now outputs the goal through the trace channel.
wenzelm@15022
    41
wenzelm@15022
    42
* Pure: reference Namespace.unique_names included.  If true the
wenzelm@15022
    43
  (shortest) namespace-prefix is printed to disambiguate conflicts (as
wenzelm@15022
    44
  yet). If false the first entry wins (as during parsing). Default
wenzelm@15022
    45
  value is true.
schirmer@15018
    46
wenzelm@15033
    47
* Pure: tuned internal renaming of symbolic identifiers -- attach
wenzelm@15033
    48
  primes instead of base 26 numbers.
wenzelm@15033
    49
wenzelm@14816
    50
* Pure/Syntax: inner syntax includes (*(*nested*) comments*).
wenzelm@14816
    51
wenzelm@14816
    52
* Pure/Syntax: pretty pinter now supports unbreakable blocks,
wenzelm@14816
    53
  specified in mixfix annotations as "(00...)".
wenzelm@14816
    54
wenzelm@14816
    55
* Pure/Syntax: 'advanced' translation functions (parse_translation
wenzelm@14816
    56
  etc.) may depend on the signature of the theory context being
wenzelm@14816
    57
  presently used for parsing/printing, see also isar-ref manual.
wenzelm@14816
    58
wenzelm@15033
    59
* Pure/Simplifier: simplification procedures may now take the current
wenzelm@15033
    60
  simpset into account (cf. Simplifier.simproc(_i) / mk_simproc
wenzelm@15033
    61
  interface), which is very useful for calling the Simplifier
wenzelm@15033
    62
  recursively.  Minor INCOMPATIBILITY: the 'prems' argument of
wenzelm@15033
    63
  simprocs is gone -- use prems_of_ss on the simpset instead.
wenzelm@15033
    64
  Moreover, the low-level mk_simproc no longer applies Logic.varify
wenzelm@15033
    65
  internally, to allow for use in a context of fixed variables.
wenzelm@15033
    66
wenzelm@15033
    67
* Provers: Simplifier and Classical Reasoner now support proof context
wenzelm@15033
    68
  dependent plug-ins (simprocs, solvers, wrappers etc.).  These extra
wenzelm@15033
    69
  components are stored in the theory and patched into the
wenzelm@15033
    70
  simpset/claset when used in an Isar proof context.  Context
wenzelm@15033
    71
  dependent components are maintained by the following theory
wenzelm@15033
    72
  operations:
wenzelm@15033
    73
wenzelm@15033
    74
    Simplifier.add_context_simprocs
wenzelm@15033
    75
    Simplifier.del_context_simprocs
wenzelm@15033
    76
    Simplifier.set_context_subgoaler
wenzelm@15033
    77
    Simplifier.reset_context_subgoaler
wenzelm@15033
    78
    Simplifier.add_context_looper
wenzelm@15033
    79
    Simplifier.del_context_looper
wenzelm@15033
    80
    Simplifier.add_context_unsafe_solver
wenzelm@15033
    81
    Simplifier.add_context_safe_solver
wenzelm@15033
    82
wenzelm@15033
    83
    Classical.add_context_safe_wrapper
wenzelm@15033
    84
    Classical.del_context_safe_wrapper
wenzelm@15033
    85
    Classical.add_context_unsafe_wrapper
wenzelm@15033
    86
    Classical.del_context_unsafe_wrapper
wenzelm@15033
    87
wenzelm@15033
    88
  IMPORTANT NOTE: proof tools (methods etc.) need to use
wenzelm@15033
    89
  local_simpset_of and local_claset_of to instead of the primitive
wenzelm@15033
    90
  Simplifier.get_local_simpset and Classical.get_local_claset,
wenzelm@15033
    91
  respectively, in order to see the context dependent fields!
wenzelm@14816
    92
wenzelm@14897
    93
* Document preparation: antiquotations now provide the option
wenzelm@14897
    94
  'locale=NAME' to specify an alternative context used for evaluating
wenzelm@14897
    95
  and printing the subsequent argument, as in @{thm [locale=LC]
wenzelm@14919
    96
  fold_commute}, for example.
wenzelm@14897
    97
wenzelm@14934
    98
* Document preparation: commands 'display_drafts' and 'print_drafts'
wenzelm@14934
    99
  perform simple output of raw sources.  Only those symbols that do
wenzelm@14934
   100
  not require additional LaTeX packages (depending on comments in
wenzelm@14934
   101
  isabellesym.sty) are displayed properly, everything else is left
wenzelm@14934
   102
  verbatim.  We use isatool display and isatool print as front ends;
wenzelm@14934
   103
  these are subject to the DVI_VIEWER and PRINT_COMMAND settings,
wenzelm@14934
   104
  respectively.
wenzelm@14934
   105
wenzelm@14917
   106
* ML: output via the Isabelle channels of writeln/warning/error
wenzelm@14917
   107
  etc. is now passed through Output.output, with a hook for arbitrary
wenzelm@14917
   108
  transformations depending on the print_mode (cf. Output.add_mode --
wenzelm@14917
   109
  the first active mode that provides a output function wins).
wenzelm@14917
   110
  Already formatted output may be embedded into further text via
wenzelm@14917
   111
  Output.raw; the result of Pretty.string_of/str_of and derived
wenzelm@14917
   112
  functions (string_of_term/cterm/thm etc.) is already marked raw to
wenzelm@14917
   113
  accommodate easy composition of diagnostic messages etc.
wenzelm@14917
   114
  Programmers rarely need to care about Output.output or Output.raw at
wenzelm@14917
   115
  all, with some notable exceptions: Output.output is required when
wenzelm@14917
   116
  bypassing the standard channels (writeln etc.), or in token
wenzelm@14917
   117
  translations to produce properly formatted results; Output.raw is
wenzelm@14917
   118
  required when capturing already output material that will eventually
wenzelm@14972
   119
  be presented to the user a second time.  For the default print mode,
wenzelm@14972
   120
  both Output.output and Output.raw have no effect.
wenzelm@14795
   121
wenzelm@14707
   122
schirmer@14700
   123
*** HOL ***
schirmer@14700
   124
wenzelm@14731
   125
* HOL/record: reimplementation of records. Improved scalability for
wenzelm@14731
   126
  records with many fields, avoiding performance problems for type
wenzelm@14731
   127
  inference. Records are no longer composed of nested field types, but
wenzelm@14731
   128
  of nested extension types. Therefore the record type only grows
wenzelm@14731
   129
  linear in the number of extensions and not in the number of fields.
wenzelm@14731
   130
  The top-level (users) view on records is preserved.  Potential
wenzelm@14731
   131
  INCOMPATIBILITY only in strange cases, where the theory depends on
wenzelm@14731
   132
  the old record representation. The type generated for a record is
wenzelm@14731
   133
  called <record_name>_ext_type.
wenzelm@14731
   134
wenzelm@15022
   135
* HOL/record: Reference record_quick_and_dirty_sensitive can be
wenzelm@15022
   136
  enabled to skip the proofs triggered by a record definition or a
wenzelm@15022
   137
  simproc (if quick_and_dirty is enabled). Definitions of large
wenzelm@15022
   138
  records can take quite long.
wenzelm@15022
   139
wenzelm@15022
   140
* HOL/record: "record_upd_simproc" for simplification of multiple
wenzelm@15022
   141
  record updates enabled by default.  Moreover, trivial updates are
wenzelm@15022
   142
  also removed: r(|x := x r|) = r.  INCOMPATIBILITY: old proofs break
wenzelm@15022
   143
  occasionally, since simplification is more powerful by default.
schirmer@15012
   144
wenzelm@14878
   145
* HOL: symbolic syntax of Hilbert Choice Operator is now as follows:
wenzelm@14878
   146
wenzelm@14878
   147
  syntax (epsilon)
wenzelm@14878
   148
    "_Eps" :: "[pttrn, bool] => 'a"    ("(3\<some>_./ _)" [0, 10] 10)
wenzelm@14878
   149
wenzelm@14878
   150
  The symbol \<some> is displayed as the alternative epsilon of LaTeX
wenzelm@14878
   151
  and x-symbol; use option '-m epsilon' to get it actually printed.
wenzelm@14878
   152
  Moreover, the mathematically important symbolic identifier
wenzelm@14878
   153
  \<epsilon> becomes available as variable, constant etc.
wenzelm@14878
   154
nipkow@15046
   155
* HOL/SetInterval: The syntax for open intervals has changed:
nipkow@15046
   156
nipkow@15046
   157
  Old         New
nipkow@15046
   158
  {..n(}   -> {..<n}
nipkow@15046
   159
  {)n..}   -> {n<..}
nipkow@15046
   160
  {m..n(}  -> {m..<n}
nipkow@15046
   161
  {)m..n}  -> {m<..n}
nipkow@15046
   162
  {)m..n(} -> {m<..<n}
nipkow@15046
   163
nipkow@15046
   164
  The old syntax is still supported but will disappear in the future.
nipkow@15046
   165
  For conversion use the following emacs search and replace patterns:
nipkow@15046
   166
nipkow@15046
   167
  {)\([^\.]*\)\.\.  ->  {\1<\.\.}
nipkow@15046
   168
  \.\.\([^(}]*\)(}  ->  \.\.<\1}
nipkow@15046
   169
nipkow@15046
   170
  They are not perfect but work quite well.
nipkow@15046
   171
nipkow@15046
   172
* HOL: There is new syntax for summation over finite sets:
nipkow@15046
   173
nipkow@15046
   174
  '\<Sum>x | P. e' is the same as 'setsum (%x. e) {x. P}'
nipkow@15046
   175
  '\<Sum>x<k. e'   is the same as 'setsum (%x. e) {..<k}'
nipkow@15046
   176
nipkow@15046
   177
  Function 'Summation' over nat is gone, its syntax '\<Sum>i<k. e'
nipkow@15046
   178
  now translates into 'setsum' as above.
nipkow@15046
   179
wenzelm@14655
   180
wenzelm@14682
   181
*** HOLCF ***
wenzelm@14682
   182
wenzelm@14682
   183
* HOLCF: discontinued special version of 'constdefs' (which used to
wenzelm@14731
   184
  support continuous functions) in favor of the general Pure one with
wenzelm@14731
   185
  full type-inference.
wenzelm@14682

paulson@14885
   188
*** ZF ***
paulson@14885
   189
paulson@14885
   190
* ZF/ex/{Group,Ring}: examples in abstract algebra, including the First
paulson@14885
   191
  Isomorphism Theorem (on quotienting by the kernel of a homomorphism).
paulson@14885
   192
paulson@14885

wenzelm@14606

New in Isabelle2004 (April 2004)
wenzelm@14606
   196
--------------------------------
wenzelm@13280
   197
skalberg@14171
   198
*** General ***
skalberg@14171
   199
ballarin@14398
   200
* Provers/order.ML:  new efficient reasoner for partial and linear orders.
ballarin@14398
   201
  Replaces linorder.ML.
ballarin@14398
   202
wenzelm@14606
   203
* Pure: Greek letters (except small lambda, \<lambda>), as well as Gothic
wenzelm@14606
   204
  (\<aa>...\<zz>\<AA>...\<ZZ>), calligraphic (\<A>...\<Z>), and Euler
skalberg@14173
   205
  (\<a>...\<z>), are now considered normal letters, and can therefore
skalberg@14173
   206
  be used anywhere where an ASCII letter (a...zA...Z) has until
skalberg@14173
   207
  now. COMPATIBILITY: This obviously changes the parsing of some
skalberg@14173
   208
  terms, especially where a symbol has been used as a binder, say
skalberg@14173
   209
  '\<Pi>x. ...', which is now a type error since \<Pi>x will be parsed
skalberg@14173
   210
  as an identifier.  Fix it by inserting a space around former
skalberg@14173
   211
  symbols.  Call 'isatool fixgreek' to try to fix parsing errors in
skalberg@14173
   212
  existing theory and ML files.
skalberg@14171
   213
paulson@14237
   214
* Pure: Macintosh and Windows line-breaks are now allowed in theory files.
paulson@14237
   215
wenzelm@14731
   216
* Pure: single letter sub/superscripts (\<^isub> and \<^isup>) are now
wenzelm@14731
   217
  allowed in identifiers. Similar to Greek letters \<^isub> is now considered
wenzelm@14731
   218
  a normal (but invisible) letter. For multiple letter subscripts repeat
wenzelm@14731
   219
  \<^isub> like this: x\<^isub>1\<^isub>2.
kleing@14233
   220
kleing@14333
   221
* Pure: There are now sub-/superscripts that can span more than one
kleing@14333
   222
  character. Text between \<^bsub> and \<^esub> is set in subscript in
wenzelm@14606
   223
  ProofGeneral and LaTeX, text between \<^bsup> and \<^esup> in
wenzelm@14606
   224
  superscript. The new control characters are not identifier parts.
kleing@14333
   225
schirmer@14561
   226
* Pure: Control-symbols of the form \<^raw:...> will literally print the
wenzelm@14606
   227
  content of "..." to the latex file instead of \isacntrl... . The "..."
wenzelm@14606
   228
  may consist of any printable characters excluding the end bracket >.
schirmer@14361
   229
paulson@14237
   230
* Pure: Using new Isar command "finalconsts" (or the ML functions
paulson@14237
   231
  Theory.add_finals or Theory.add_finals_i) it is now possible to
paulson@14237
   232
  declare constants "final", which prevents their being given a definition
paulson@14237
   233
  later.  It is useful for constants whose behaviour is fixed axiomatically
skalberg@14224
   234
  rather than definitionally, such as the meta-logic connectives.
skalberg@14224
   235
wenzelm@14606
   236
* Pure: 'instance' now handles general arities with general sorts
wenzelm@14606
   237
  (i.e. intersections of classes),
skalberg@14503
   238
kleing@14547
   239
* Presentation: generated HTML now uses a CSS style sheet to make layout
wenzelm@14731
   240
  (somewhat) independent of content. It is copied from lib/html/isabelle.css.
kleing@14547
   241
  It can be changed to alter the colors/layout of generated pages.
kleing@14547
   242
wenzelm@14556
   243
ballarin@14175
   244
*** Isar ***
ballarin@14175
   245
ballarin@14508
   246
* Tactic emulation methods rule_tac, erule_tac, drule_tac, frule_tac,
ballarin@14508
   247
  cut_tac, subgoal_tac and thin_tac:
ballarin@14175
   248
  - Now understand static (Isar) contexts.  As a consequence, users of Isar
ballarin@14175
   249
    locales are no longer forced to write Isar proof scripts.
ballarin@14175
   250
    For details see Isar Reference Manual, paragraph 4.3.2: Further tactic
ballarin@14175
   251
    emulations.
ballarin@14175
   252
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: names of variables to be instantiated may no
ballarin@14211
   253
    longer be enclosed in quotes.  Instead, precede variable name with `?'.
ballarin@14211
   254
    This is consistent with the instantiation attribute "where".
ballarin@14211
   255
ballarin@14257
   256
* Attributes "where" and "of":
ballarin@14285
   257
  - Now take type variables of instantiated theorem into account when reading
ballarin@14285
   258
    the instantiation string.  This fixes a bug that caused instantiated
ballarin@14285
   259
    theorems to have too special types in some circumstances.
ballarin@14285

  - "where" permits explicit instantiations of type variables.
ballarin@14257

* Calculation commands "moreover" and "also" no longer interfere with
wenzelm@14556
   263
  current facts ("this"), admitting arbitrary combinations with "then"
wenzelm@14556
   264
  and derived forms.
kleing@14283

ballarin@14211
   266
* Locales:
ballarin@14211
   267
  - Goal statements involving the context element "includes" no longer
ballarin@14211
   268
    generate theorems with internal delta predicates (those ending on
ballarin@14211
   269
    "_axioms") in the premise.
ballarin@14211
   270
    Resolve particular premise with <locale>.intro to obtain old form.
ballarin@14211
   271
  - Fixed bug in type inference ("unify_frozen") that prevented mix of target
ballarin@14211
   272
    specification and "includes" elements in goal statement.
ballarin@14254
   273
  - Rule sets <locale>.intro and <locale>.axioms no longer declared as
ballarin@14254
   274
    [intro?] and [elim?] (respectively) by default.
ballarin@14508
   275
  - Experimental command for instantiation of locales in proof contexts:
ballarin@14551
   276
        instantiate <label>[<attrs>]: <loc>
ballarin@14508
   277
    Instantiates locale <loc> and adds all its theorems to the current context
ballarin@14551
   278
    taking into account their attributes.  Label and attrs are optional
ballarin@14551
   279
    modifiers, like in theorem declarations.  If present, names of
ballarin@14551
   280
    instantiated theorems are qualified with <label>, and the attributes
ballarin@14551
   281
    <attrs> are applied after any attributes these theorems might have already.
ballarin@14551
   282
      If the locale has assumptions, a chained fact of the form
ballarin@14508
   283
    "<loc> t1 ... tn" is expected from which instantiations of the parameters
ballarin@14551
   284
    are derived.  The command does not support old-style locales declared
ballarin@14551
   285
    with "locale (open)".
ballarin@14551
   286
      A few (very simple) examples can be found in FOL/ex/LocaleInst.thy.

kleing@14624
   295
  the HOL4 system with about 2500 theorems. It is imported by
kleing@14624
   296
  replaying proof terms produced by HOL4 in Isabelle. The HOL4 image

* Simplifier:
ballarin@14398
   301
  - Much improved handling of linear and partial orders.
ballarin@14398
   302
    Reasoners for linear and partial orders are set up for type classes
ballarin@14398
   303
    "linorder" and "order" respectively, and are added to the default simpset
ballarin@14398
   304
    as solvers.  This means that the simplifier can build transitivity chains
ballarin@14398
   305
    to solve goals from the assumptions.
ballarin@14398
   306
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: old proofs break occasionally.  Typically, applications
ballarin@14398
   307
    of blast or auto after simplification become unnecessary because the goal
ballarin@14398
   308
    is solved by simplification already.

  - Numeric types (nat, int, and in HOL-Complex rat, real, complex, etc.) are
wenzelm@14731
   315
    now formalized using the Ring_and_Field theory mentioned above.
paulson@14389
   316
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: simplification and arithmetic behaves somewhat differently
paulson@14389
   317
    than before, because now they are set up once in a generic manner.
wenzelm@14731
   318
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: many type-specific arithmetic laws have gone.
paulson@14480
   319
    Look for the general versions in Ring_and_Field (and Power if they concern
paulson@14480
   320
    exponentiation).
paulson@14389

* Type "rat" of the rational numbers is now available in HOL-Complex.
paulson@14389

schirmer@14255
   324
* Records:
schirmer@14255
   325
  - Record types are now by default printed with their type abbreviation
schirmer@14255
   326
    instead of the list of all field types. This can be configured via
schirmer@14255
   327
    the reference "print_record_type_abbr".
wenzelm@14731
   328
  - Simproc "record_upd_simproc" for simplification of multiple updates added
schirmer@14255
   329
    (not enabled by default).
schirmer@14427
   330
  - Simproc "record_ex_sel_eq_simproc" to simplify EX x. sel r = x resp.
schirmer@14427
   331
    EX x. x = sel r to True (not enabled by default).
schirmer@14255
   332
  - Tactic "record_split_simp_tac" to split and simplify records added.
wenzelm@14731
   333
kleing@14136
   334
* 'specification' command added, allowing for definition by
skalberg@14224

skalberg@14224
   336
  introduces the new constants axiomatically.

  matrix theory to linear programming.
kleing@14136
   347
nipkow@14380
   348
* Unions and Intersections:
nipkow@14380
   349
  The x-symbol output syntax of UN and INT has been changed
nipkow@14380
   350
  from "\<Union>x \<in> A. B" to "\<Union\<^bsub>x \<in> A\<^esub> B"
nipkow@14380
   351
  i.e. the index formulae has become a subscript, like in normal math.
nipkow@14380
   352
  Similarly for "\<Union>x. B", and for \<Inter> instead of \<Union>.
nipkow@14380
   353
  The subscript version is also accepted as input syntax.
nipkow@14380
   354
kleing@14418
   355
* Unions and Intersections over Intervals:
wenzelm@14731
   356
  There is new short syntax "UN i<=n. A" for "UN i:{0..n}. A". There is
wenzelm@14731
   357
  also an x-symbol version with subscripts "\<Union>\<^bsub>i <= n\<^esub>. A"
kleing@14418
   358
  like in normal math, and corresponding versions for < and for intersection.
kleing@14418
   359
paulson@14401
   360
* ML: the legacy theory structures Int and List have been removed. They had
paulson@14401
   361
  conflicted with ML Basis Library structures having the same names.
nipkow@14380
   362
webertj@14464
   363
* 'refute' command added to search for (finite) countermodels.  Only works
webertj@14464
   364
  for a fragment of HOL.  The installation of an external SAT solver is
webertj@14464
   365
  highly recommended.  See "HOL/Refute.thy" for details.
webertj@14464
   366
berghofe@14602
   367
* 'quickcheck' command: Allows to find counterexamples by evaluating
berghofe@14602
   368
  formulae under an assignment of free variables to random values.
berghofe@14602
   369
  In contrast to 'refute', it can deal with inductive datatypes,
berghofe@14602
   370
  but cannot handle quantifiers. See "HOL/ex/Quickcheck_Examples.thy"
berghofe@14602
   371
  for examples.

* Provers/simplifier:
berghofe@13618
   386
nipkow@13781
   387
  - Completely reimplemented method simp (ML: Asm_full_simp_tac):
berghofe@13618
   388
    Assumptions are now subject to complete mutual simplification,
berghofe@13618
   389
    not just from left to right. The simplifier now preserves
berghofe@13618
   390
    the order of assumptions.
berghofe@13618
   391
berghofe@13618
   392
    Potential INCOMPATIBILITY:
berghofe@13618
   393
nipkow@13781
   394
    -- simp sometimes diverges where the old version did
nipkow@13781
   395
       not, e.g. invoking simp on the goal
berghofe@13618
   396
berghofe@13618
   397
        [| P (f x); y = x; f x = f y |] ==> Q
berghofe@13618
   398
nipkow@13781
   399
       now gives rise to the infinite reduction sequence
nipkow@13781
   400
nipkow@13781
   401
        P(f x) --(f x = f y)--> P(f y) --(y = x)--> P(f x) --(f x = f y)--> ...
nipkow@13781
   402
nipkow@13781
   403
       Using "simp (asm_lr)" (ML: Asm_lr_simp_tac) instead often solves this
nipkow@13781
   404
       kind of problem.
nipkow@13781
   405
nipkow@13781
   406
    -- Tactics combining classical reasoner and simplification (such as auto)
nipkow@13781
   407
       are also affected by this change, because many of them rely on
nipkow@13781
   408
       simp. They may sometimes diverge as well or yield a different numbers
nipkow@13781
   409
       of subgoals. Try to use e.g. force, fastsimp, or safe instead of auto
nipkow@13781
   410
       in case of problems. Sometimes subsequent calls to the classical
nipkow@13781
   411
       reasoner will fail because a preceeding call to the simplifier too
nipkow@13781
   412
       eagerly simplified the goal, e.g. deleted redundant premises.
berghofe@13618
   413
berghofe@13618
   414
  - The simplifier trace now shows the names of the applied rewrite rules
berghofe@13618
   415
nipkow@13829
   416
  - You can limit the number of recursive invocations of the simplifier
nipkow@13829
   417
    during conditional rewriting (where the simplifie tries to solve the
nipkow@13829
   418
    conditions before applying the rewrite rule):
nipkow@13829
   419
    ML "simp_depth_limit := n"
nipkow@13829
   420
    where n is an integer. Thus you can force termination where previously
nipkow@13829
   421
    the simplifier would diverge.
nipkow@13829
   422
ballarin@13835
   423
  - Accepts free variables as head terms in congruence rules.  Useful in Isar.
nipkow@13829
   424
ballarin@13938
   425
  - No longer aborts on failed congruence proof.  Instead, the
ballarin@13938
   426
    congruence is ignored.
ballarin@13938
   427
berghofe@14008

* Pure: New generic framework for extracting programs from constructive
berghofe@14008
   429
  proofs. See HOL/Extraction.thy for an example instantiation, as well
berghofe@14008
   430
  as HOL/Extraction for some case studies.
berghofe@14008
   431
nipkow@13868
   432
* Pure: The main goal of the proof state is no longer shown by default, only
nipkow@13868
   433
the subgoals. This behaviour is controlled by a new flag.
ballarin@13835
   434
   PG menu: Isabelle/Isar -> Settings -> Show Main Goal
nipkow@13815
   435
(ML: Proof.show_main_goal).
nipkow@13815
   436
nipkow@13815
   437
* Pure: You can find all matching introduction rules for subgoal 1, i.e. all
nipkow@13815
   438
rules whose conclusion matches subgoal 1:
nipkow@13815
   439
      PG menu: Isabelle/Isar -> Show me -> matching rules
nipkow@13815
   440
The rules are ordered by how closely they match the subgoal.
nipkow@13815
   441
In particular, rules that solve a subgoal outright are displayed first
nipkow@13815
   442
(or rather last, the way they are printed).
nipkow@13815
   443
(ML: ProofGeneral.print_intros())
nipkow@13815
   444
nipkow@13815
   445
* Pure: New flag trace_unify_fail causes unification to print
nipkow@13781
   446
diagnostic information (PG: in trace buffer) when it fails. This is
nipkow@13781
   447
useful for figuring out why single step proofs like rule, erule or
nipkow@13781
   448
assumption failed.
nipkow@13781
   449
nipkow@13815
   450
* Pure: Locale specifications now produce predicate definitions
wenzelm@13410
   451
according to the body of text (covering assumptions modulo local
wenzelm@13410
   452
definitions); predicate "loc_axioms" covers newly introduced text,
wenzelm@13410
   453
while "loc" is cumulative wrt. all included locale expressions; the
wenzelm@13410
   454
latter view is presented only on export into the global theory
wenzelm@13410
   455
context; potential INCOMPATIBILITY, use "(open)" option to fall back
wenzelm@13410
   456
on the old view without predicates;
wenzelm@13410
   457
wenzelm@13459
   458
* Pure: predefined locales "var" and "struct" are useful for sharing
wenzelm@13459
   459
parameters (as in CASL, for example); just specify something like
wenzelm@13459
   460
``var x + var y + struct M'' as import;
wenzelm@13459
   461
wenzelm@13463
   462
* Pure: improved thms_containing: proper indexing of facts instead of
wenzelm@13463
   463
raw theorems; check validity of results wrt. current name space;
wenzelm@13463
   464
include local facts of proof configuration (also covers active
wenzelm@13541
   465
locales), cover fixed variables in index; may use "_" in term
wenzelm@13541
   466
specification; an optional limit for the number of printed facts may
wenzelm@13541
   467
be given (the default is 40);
wenzelm@13541
   468
wenzelm@13541
   469
* Pure: disallow duplicate fact bindings within new-style theory files
wenzelm@13541
   470
(batch-mode only);
wenzelm@13540
   471
wenzelm@13463
   472
* Provers: improved induct method: assumptions introduced by case
wenzelm@13463
   473
"foo" are split into "foo.hyps" (from the rule) and "foo.prems" (from
wenzelm@13463
   474
the goal statement); "foo" still refers to all facts collectively;
wenzelm@13463
   475
paulson@13550
   476
* Provers: the function blast.overloaded has been removed: all constants
paulson@13550
   477
are regarded as potentially overloaded, which improves robustness in exchange
paulson@13550
   478
for slight decrease in efficiency;
paulson@13550
   479
nipkow@13781
   480
* Provers/linorder: New generic prover for transitivity reasoning over
nipkow@13781
   481
linear orders.  Note: this prover is not efficient!
nipkow@13781
   482
wenzelm@13522
   483
* Isar: preview of problems to finish 'show' now produce an error

 - Produces a counter example if it cannot prove a goal.
nipkow@13899

   Note that the counter example may be spurious if the goal is not a formula
nipkow@13899
   493

omits the infamous "standard" operation, so this is more appropriate
wenzelm@13478
   576
than prove_goalw_cterm in many situations (e.g. in simprocs);
wenzelm@13478
   577

*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@11572
   605
wenzelm@11842
   606
* greatly simplified document preparation setup, including more
wenzelm@11842
   607
graceful interpretation of isatool usedir -i/-d/-D options, and more
wenzelm@11842
   608
instructive isatool mkdir; users should basically be able to get
wenzelm@12899
   609
started with "isatool mkdir HOL Test && isatool make"; alternatively,
wenzelm@12899
   610
users may run a separate document processing stage manually like this:
wenzelm@12899
   611
"isatool usedir -D output HOL Test && isatool document Test/output";
wenzelm@11842
   612
wenzelm@11842
   613
* theory dependency graph may now be incorporated into documents;
wenzelm@11842
   614
isatool usedir -g true will produce session_graph.eps/.pdf for use
wenzelm@11842
   615
with \includegraphics of LaTeX;
wenzelm@11842
   616
wenzelm@11864
   617
* proper spacing of consecutive markup elements, especially text
wenzelm@11864
   618
blocks after section headings;
wenzelm@11864
   619
wenzelm@11572
   620
* support bold style (for single symbols only), input syntax is like
wenzelm@11572
   621
this: "\<^bold>\<alpha>" or "\<^bold>A";
wenzelm@11572
   622
wenzelm@11814
   623
* \<bullet> is now output as bold \cdot by default, which looks much
wenzelm@11572
   624
better in printed text;
wenzelm@11572
   625
wenzelm@11712
   626
* added default LaTeX bindings for \<tturnstile> and \<TTurnstile>;
wenzelm@11712
   627
note that these symbols are currently unavailable in Proof General /
wenzelm@12769
   628
X-Symbol; new symbols \<zero>, \<one>, ..., \<nine>, and \<euro>;
wenzelm@12690
   629
wenzelm@12690
   630
* isatool latex no longer depends on changed TEXINPUTS, instead
wenzelm@12690

   636
wenzelm@12312
   637
* Pure/Provers: improved proof by cases and induction;
wenzelm@12280
   638
  - 'case' command admits impromptu naming of parameters (such as
wenzelm@12280
   639
    "case (Suc n)");
wenzelm@12280
   640
  - 'induct' method divinates rule instantiation from the inductive
wenzelm@12280
   641
    claim; no longer requires excessive ?P bindings for proper
wenzelm@12280
   642
    instantiation of cases;
wenzelm@12280
   643
  - 'induct' method properly enumerates all possibilities of set/type
wenzelm@12280
   644
    rules; as a consequence facts may be also passed through *type*
wenzelm@12280
   645
    rules without further ado;
wenzelm@12280
   646
  - 'induct' method now derives symbolic cases from the *rulified*
wenzelm@12280
   647
    rule (before it used to rulify cases stemming from the internal
wenzelm@12280
   648
    atomized version); this means that the context of a non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
   649
    statement becomes is included in the hypothesis, avoiding the
wenzelm@12280
   650
    slightly cumbersome show "PROP ?case" form;
wenzelm@12280
   651
  - 'induct' may now use elim-style induction rules without chaining
wenzelm@12280
   652
    facts, using ``missing'' premises from the goal state; this allows
wenzelm@12280
   653
    rules stemming from inductive sets to be applied in unstructured
wenzelm@12280
   654
    scripts, while still benefitting from proper handling of non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
   655
    statements; NB: major inductive premises need to be put first, all
wenzelm@12280
   656
    the rest of the goal is passed through the induction;
wenzelm@12280
   657
  - 'induct' proper support for mutual induction involving non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
   658
    rule statements (uses the new concept of simultaneous goals, see
wenzelm@12280
   659
    below);
wenzelm@12853
   660
  - append all possible rule selections, but only use the first
wenzelm@12853
   661
    success (no backtracking);
wenzelm@11995
   662
  - removed obsolete "(simplified)" and "(stripped)" options of methods;
wenzelm@12754
   663
  - undeclared rule case names default to numbers 1, 2, 3, ...;
wenzelm@12754
   664
  - added 'print_induct_rules' (covered by help item in recent Proof
wenzelm@12754
   665
    General versions);
wenzelm@11995
   666
  - moved induct/cases attributes to Pure, methods to Provers;
wenzelm@11995
   667
  - generic method setup instantiated for FOL and HOL;
wenzelm@11986
   668
wenzelm@12163
   669
* Pure: support multiple simultaneous goal statements, for example
wenzelm@12163
   670
"have a: A and b: B" (same for 'theorem' etc.); being a pure
wenzelm@12163
   671
meta-level mechanism, this acts as if several individual goals had
wenzelm@12163
   672
been stated separately; in particular common proof methods need to be
wenzelm@12163
   673
repeated in order to cover all claims; note that a single elimination
wenzelm@12163
   674
step is *not* sufficient to establish the two conjunctions, so this
wenzelm@12163
   675
fails:
wenzelm@12163
   676
wenzelm@12163
   677
  assume "A & B" then have A and B ..   (*".." fails*)
wenzelm@12163
   678
wenzelm@12163
   679
better use "obtain" in situations as above; alternative refer to
wenzelm@12163
   680
multi-step methods like 'auto', 'simp_all', 'blast+' etc.;
wenzelm@12163
   681
wenzelm@12078
   682
* Pure: proper integration with ``locales''; unlike the original
wenzelm@12210
   683
version by Florian Kammüller, Isar locales package high-level proof
wenzelm@12078
   684
contexts rather than raw logical ones (e.g. we admit to include
wenzelm@12280
   685
attributes everywhere); operations on locales include merge and
wenzelm@12964
   686
rename; support for implicit arguments (``structures''); simultaneous
wenzelm@12964
   687
type-inference over imports and text; see also HOL/ex/Locales.thy for
wenzelm@12964
   688
some examples;
wenzelm@12078
   689
wenzelm@12707
   690
* Pure: the following commands have been ``localized'', supporting a
wenzelm@12707
   691
target locale specification "(in name)": 'lemma', 'theorem',
wenzelm@12707
   692
'corollary', 'lemmas', 'theorems', 'declare'; the results will be
wenzelm@12707
   693
stored both within the locale and at the theory level (exported and
wenzelm@12707
   694
qualified by the locale name);
wenzelm@12707
   695
wenzelm@12964
   696
* Pure: theory goals may now be specified in ``long'' form, with
wenzelm@12964
   697
ad-hoc contexts consisting of arbitrary locale elements. for example
wenzelm@12964
   698
``lemma foo: fixes x assumes "A x" shows "B x"'' (local syntax and
wenzelm@12964
   699
definitions may be given, too); the result is a meta-level rule with
wenzelm@12964
   700
the context elements being discharged in the obvious way;
wenzelm@12964
   701
wenzelm@12964
   702
* Pure: new proof command 'using' allows to augment currently used
wenzelm@12964
   703
facts after a goal statement ('using' is syntactically analogous to
wenzelm@12964
   704
'apply', but acts on the goal's facts only); this allows chained facts
wenzelm@12964
   705
to be separated into parts given before and after a claim, as in
wenzelm@12964
   706
``from a and b have C using d and e <proof>'';
wenzelm@12078
   707
wenzelm@11722
   708
* Pure: renamed "antecedent" case to "rule_context";
wenzelm@11722
   709
wenzelm@12964
   710
* Pure: new 'judgment' command records explicit information about the
wenzelm@12964
   711
object-logic embedding (used by several tools internally); no longer
wenzelm@12964
   712
use hard-wired "Trueprop";
wenzelm@12964
   713
wenzelm@11738
   714
* Pure: added 'corollary' command;
wenzelm@11738
   715
wenzelm@11722
   716
* Pure: fixed 'token_translation' command;
wenzelm@11722
   717
wenzelm@11899
   718
* Pure: removed obsolete 'exported' attribute;
wenzelm@11899
   719
wenzelm@11933
   720
* Pure: dummy pattern "_" in is/let is now automatically lifted over
wenzelm@11933
   721
bound variables: "ALL x. P x --> Q x" (is "ALL x. _ --> ?C x")
wenzelm@11899
   722
supersedes more cumbersome ... (is "ALL x. _ x --> ?C x");
wenzelm@11899
   723
wenzelm@11952
   724
* Pure: method 'atomize' presents local goal premises as object-level
wenzelm@11952
   725
statements (atomic meta-level propositions); setup controlled via
wenzelm@11952
   726
rewrite rules declarations of 'atomize' attribute; example
wenzelm@11952
   727
application: 'induct' method with proper rule statements in improper
wenzelm@11952
   728
proof *scripts*;
wenzelm@11952
   729
wenzelm@12106
   730
* Pure: emulation of instantiation tactics (rule_tac, cut_tac, etc.)
wenzelm@12106
   731
now consider the syntactic context of assumptions, giving a better
wenzelm@12106
   732
chance to get type-inference of the arguments right (this is
wenzelm@12106
   733
especially important for locales);
wenzelm@12106
   734
wenzelm@12312
   735
* Pure: "sorry" no longer requires quick_and_dirty in interactive
wenzelm@12312
   736
mode;
wenzelm@12312
   737
wenzelm@12405
   738
* Pure/obtain: the formal conclusion "thesis", being marked as
wenzelm@12405
   739
``internal'', may no longer be reference directly in the text;
wenzelm@12405
   740
potential INCOMPATIBILITY, may need to use "?thesis" in rare
wenzelm@12405
   741
situations;
wenzelm@12405
   742
wenzelm@12405
   743
* Pure: generic 'sym' attribute which declares a rule both as pure
wenzelm@12405
   744
'elim?' and for the 'symmetric' operation;
wenzelm@12405
   745
wenzelm@12877
   746
* Pure: marginal comments ``--'' may now occur just anywhere in the
wenzelm@12877
   747
text; the fixed correlation with particular command syntax has been
wenzelm@12877
   748
discontinued;
wenzelm@12877
   749
berghofe@13023
   750
* Pure: new method 'rules' is particularly well-suited for proof
berghofe@13023
   751
search in intuitionistic logic; a bit slower than 'blast' or 'fast',
berghofe@13023
   752
but often produces more compact proof terms with less detours;
berghofe@13023
   753
wenzelm@12364
   754
* Pure/Provers/classical: simplified integration with pure rule
wenzelm@12364
   755
attributes and methods; the classical "intro?/elim?/dest?"
wenzelm@12364
   756
declarations coincide with the pure ones; the "rule" method no longer
wenzelm@12364
   757
includes classically swapped intros; "intro" and "elim" methods no
wenzelm@12364
   758
longer pick rules from the context; also got rid of ML declarations
wenzelm@12364
   759
AddXIs/AddXEs/AddXDs; all of this has some potential for
wenzelm@12364
   760
INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12364
   761
wenzelm@12405
   762
* Provers/classical: attribute 'swapped' produces classical inversions
wenzelm@12405
   763
of introduction rules;
wenzelm@12405
   764
wenzelm@12364
   765
* Provers/simplifier: 'simplified' attribute may refer to explicit
wenzelm@12364
   766
rules instead of full simplifier context; 'iff' attribute handles
wenzelm@12364
   767
conditional rules;
wenzelm@11936
   768
wenzelm@11745
   769
* HOL: 'typedef' now allows alternative names for Rep/Abs morphisms;
wenzelm@11745
   770
wenzelm@11690
   771
* HOL: 'recdef' now fails on unfinished automated proofs, use
wenzelm@11633
   772
"(permissive)" option to recover old behavior;
wenzelm@11633
   773
wenzelm@11933
   774
* HOL: 'inductive' no longer features separate (collective) attributes
wenzelm@11933
   775
for 'intros' (was found too confusing);
wenzelm@11933
   776
wenzelm@12405
   777
* HOL: properly declared induction rules less_induct and
wenzelm@12405
   778
wf_induct_rule;

   781
*** HOL ***
wenzelm@11474
   782
wenzelm@11702
   783
* HOL: moved over to sane numeral syntax; the new policy is as
wenzelm@11702
   784
follows:
wenzelm@11702
   785
wenzelm@11702
   786
  - 0 and 1 are polymorphic constants, which are defined on any
wenzelm@11702
   787
  numeric type (nat, int, real etc.);
wenzelm@11702
   788
wenzelm@11702
   789
  - 2, 3, 4, ... and -1, -2, -3, ... are polymorphic numerals, based
wenzelm@11702
   790
  binary representation internally;
wenzelm@11702
   791
wenzelm@11702
   792
  - type nat has special constructor Suc, and generally prefers Suc 0
wenzelm@11702
   793
  over 1::nat and Suc (Suc 0) over 2::nat;
wenzelm@11702
   794
wenzelm@12364
   795
This change may cause significant problems of INCOMPATIBILITY; here
wenzelm@12364
   796
are some hints on converting existing sources:
wenzelm@11702
   797
wenzelm@11702
   798
  - due to the new "num" token, "-0" and "-1" etc. are now atomic
wenzelm@11702
   799
  entities, so expressions involving "-" (unary or binary minus) need
wenzelm@11702
   800
  to be spaced properly;
wenzelm@11702
   801
wenzelm@11702
   802
  - existing occurrences of "1" may need to be constraint "1::nat" or
wenzelm@11702
   803
  even replaced by Suc 0; similar for old "2";
wenzelm@11702
   804
wenzelm@11702
   805
  - replace "#nnn" by "nnn", and "#-nnn" by "-nnn";
wenzelm@11702
   806
wenzelm@11702
   807
  - remove all special provisions on numerals in proofs;
wenzelm@11702
   808
wenzelm@13042
   809
* HOL: simp rules nat_number expand numerals on nat to Suc/0
wenzelm@12837
   810
representation (depends on bin_arith_simps in the default context);
wenzelm@12837
   811
wenzelm@12736
   812
* HOL: symbolic syntax for x^2 (numeral 2);
wenzelm@12736
   813
wenzelm@12335
   814
* HOL: the class of all HOL types is now called "type" rather than
wenzelm@12335
   815
"term"; INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt references to this type class
wenzelm@12335
   816
in axclass/classes, instance/arities, and (usually rare) occurrences
wenzelm@12335
   817
in typings (of consts etc.); internally the class is called
wenzelm@12335
   818
"HOL.type", ML programs should refer to HOLogic.typeS;
wenzelm@12335
   819
wenzelm@12280
   820
* HOL/record package improvements:
wenzelm@12280
   821
  - new derived operations "fields" to build a partial record section,
wenzelm@12280
   822
    "extend" to promote a fixed record to a record scheme, and
wenzelm@12280
   823
    "truncate" for the reverse; cf. theorems "xxx.defs", which are *not*
wenzelm@12280
   824
    declared as simp by default;
wenzelm@12587
   825
  - shared operations ("more", "fields", etc.) now need to be always
wenzelm@12587
   826
    qualified) --- potential INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12280
   827
  - removed "make_scheme" operations (use "make" with "extend") --
wenzelm@12280
   828
    INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@11937
   829
  - removed "more" class (simply use "term") -- INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12253
   830
  - provides cases/induct rules for use with corresponding Isar
wenzelm@12253
   831
    methods (for concrete records, record schemes, concrete more
wenzelm@12280
   832
    parts, and schematic more parts -- in that order);
wenzelm@11930
   833
  - internal definitions directly based on a light-weight abstract
wenzelm@11930
   834
    theory of product types over typedef rather than datatype;
wenzelm@11930
   835
berghofe@13023
   836
* HOL: generic code generator for generating executable ML code from
berghofe@13023
   837
specifications; specific support for HOL constructs such as inductive
berghofe@13023
   838
datatypes and sets, as well as recursive functions; can be invoked
berghofe@13023
   839
via 'generate_code' theory section;
berghofe@13023
   840
wenzelm@11933
   841
* HOL: canonical cases/induct rules for n-tuples (n = 3..7);
wenzelm@11933
   842
paulson@13824
   843
* HOL: consolidated and renamed several theories.  In particular:
wenzelm@14731
   844
        Ord.thy has been absorbed into HOL.thy
wenzelm@14731
   845
        String.thy has been absorbed into List.thy
wenzelm@14731
   846
wenzelm@11802
   847
* HOL: concrete setsum syntax "\<Sum>i:A. b" == "setsum (%i. b) A"
wenzelm@11802
   848
(beware of argument permutation!);
wenzelm@11802
   849
wenzelm@11657
   850
* HOL: linorder_less_split superseded by linorder_cases;
wenzelm@11657
   851
wenzelm@12917
   852
* HOL/List: "nodups" renamed to "distinct";
nipkow@12889
   853
wenzelm@11633
   854
* HOL: added "The" definite description operator; move Hilbert's "Eps"
paulson@13824
   855
to peripheral theory "Hilbert_Choice"; some INCOMPATIBILITIES:
paulson@13824
   856
  - Ex_def has changed, now need to use some_eq_ex
wenzelm@11437
   857
wenzelm@11572
   858
* HOL: made split_all_tac safe; EXISTING PROOFS MAY FAIL OR LOOP, so
wenzelm@11572
   859
in this (rare) case use:
wenzelm@11572
   860
wenzelm@11572
   861
  delSWrapper "split_all_tac"
wenzelm@11572
   862
  addSbefore ("unsafe_split_all_tac", unsafe_split_all_tac)
wenzelm@11572
   863
wenzelm@11572
   864
* HOL: added safe wrapper "split_conv_tac" to claset; EXISTING PROOFS
wenzelm@11474
   865
MAY FAIL;
nipkow@11361
   866
wenzelm@11572
   867
* HOL: introduced f^n = f o ... o f; warning: due to the limits of
wenzelm@11572
   868
Isabelle's type classes, ^ on functions and relations has too general
wenzelm@11572
   869
a domain, namely ('a * 'b) set and 'a => 'b; this means that it may be
wenzelm@11572
   870
necessary to attach explicit type constraints;
nipkow@11307
   871
wenzelm@12917
   872
* HOL/Relation: the prefix name of the infix "O" has been changed from
wenzelm@12917
   873
"comp" to "rel_comp"; INCOMPATIBILITY: a few theorems have been
wenzelm@12917
   874
renamed accordingly (eg "compI" -> "rel_compI").
nipkow@12489
   875
wenzelm@11487
   876
* HOL: syntax translations now work properly with numerals and records
wenzelm@11487
   877
expressions;
wenzelm@11474
   878
wenzelm@12457
   879
* HOL: bounded abstraction now uses syntax "%" / "\<lambda>" instead
wenzelm@12457
   880
of "lam" -- INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@11474
   881
wenzelm@11933
   882
* HOL: got rid of some global declarations (potential INCOMPATIBILITY
wenzelm@11933
   883
for ML tools): const "()" renamed "Product_Type.Unity", type "unit"
wenzelm@11933
   884
renamed "Product_Type.unit";
wenzelm@11611
   885
nipkow@12564
   886
* HOL: renamed rtrancl_into_rtrancl2 to converse_rtrancl_into_rtrancl
nipkow@12564
   887
wenzelm@12924
   888
* HOL: removed obsolete theorem "optionE" (use "option.exhaust", or
wenzelm@12924
   889
the "cases" method);
wenzelm@12924
   890
wenzelm@12597
   891
* HOL/GroupTheory: group theory examples including Sylow's theorem (by
wenzelm@12597
   892
Florian Kammüller);
wenzelm@12597
   893
wenzelm@12608
   894
* HOL/IMP: updated and converted to new-style theory format; several
wenzelm@12608
   895
parts turned into readable document, with proper Isar proof texts and
wenzelm@12608
   896
some explanations (by Gerwin Klein);
wenzelm@12597
   897
wenzelm@12734
   898
* HOL-Real: added Complex_Numbers (by Gertrud Bauer);
wenzelm@12734
   899
wenzelm@12690
   900
* HOL-Hyperreal is now a logic image;
wenzelm@12690
   901
wenzelm@11611
   902
wenzelm@12022
   903
*** HOLCF ***
wenzelm@12022
   904
wenzelm@12622
   905
* Isar: consts/constdefs supports mixfix syntax for continuous
wenzelm@12622
   906
operations;
wenzelm@12622
   907
wenzelm@12622
   908
* Isar: domain package adapted to new-style theory format, e.g. see
wenzelm@12622
   909
HOLCF/ex/Dnat.thy;
wenzelm@12622
   910
wenzelm@12622
   911
* theory Lift: proper use of rep_datatype lift instead of ML hacks --
wenzelm@12280
   912
potential INCOMPATIBILITY; now use plain induct_tac instead of former
wenzelm@12280
   913
lift.induct_tac, always use UU instead of Undef;
wenzelm@12022
   914
wenzelm@12597
   915
* HOLCF/IMP: updated and converted to new-style theory;
wenzelm@12597
   916
wenzelm@12022
   917
wenzelm@11474
   918
*** ZF ***
wenzelm@11474
   919
wenzelm@12622
   920
* Isar: proper integration of logic-specific tools and packages,
wenzelm@12622
   921
including theory commands '(co)inductive', '(co)datatype',
wenzelm@12622
   922
'rep_datatype', 'inductive_cases', as well as methods 'ind_cases',
wenzelm@12622
   923
'induct_tac', 'case_tac', and 'typecheck' (with attribute 'TC');
wenzelm@12622
   924
wenzelm@12622
   925
* theory Main no longer includes AC; for the Axiom of Choice, base
wenzelm@12622
   926
your theory on Main_ZFC;
wenzelm@12622
   927
wenzelm@12622
   928
* the integer library now covers quotients and remainders, with many
wenzelm@12622
   929
laws relating division to addition, multiplication, etc.;
paulson@12563
   930
wenzelm@12280
   931
* ZF/UNITY: Chandy and Misra's UNITY is now available in ZF, giving a
wenzelm@12280
   932
typeless version of the formalism;
wenzelm@12280
   933
wenzelm@13025
   934
* ZF/AC, Coind, IMP, Resid: updated and converted to new-style theory
wenzelm@13025
   935
format;
wenzelm@12608
   936
wenzelm@12280
   937
* ZF/Induct: new directory for examples of inductive definitions,
wenzelm@12608
   938
including theory Multiset for multiset orderings; converted to
wenzelm@12608
   939
new-style theory format;
wenzelm@12177
   940
wenzelm@13025
   941
* ZF: many new theorems about lists, ordinals, etc.;
paulson@12850

wenzelm@11474
   943
wenzelm@11474
   944
*** General ***
wenzelm@11474
   945
wenzelm@12280
   946
* Pure/kernel: meta-level proof terms (by Stefan Berghofer); reference
wenzelm@12280
   947
variable proof controls level of detail: 0 = no proofs (only oracle
wenzelm@12280
   948
dependencies), 1 = lemma dependencies, 2 = compact proof terms; see
wenzelm@12280
   949
also ref manual for further ML interfaces;
wenzelm@12280
   950
wenzelm@12280
   951
* Pure/axclass: removed obsolete ML interface
wenzelm@12280
   952
goal_subclass/goal_arity;
wenzelm@12280
   953
wenzelm@12280
   954
* Pure/syntax: new token syntax "num" for plain numerals (without "#"
wenzelm@12280
   955
of "xnum"); potential INCOMPATIBILITY, since -0, -1 etc. are now
wenzelm@12280
   956
separate tokens, so expressions involving minus need to be spaced
wenzelm@12280
   957
properly;
wenzelm@12280
   958
wenzelm@12312
   959
* Pure/syntax: support non-oriented infixes, using keyword "infix"
wenzelm@12312
   960
rather than "infixl" or "infixr";
wenzelm@12312
   961
wenzelm@12312
   962
* Pure/syntax: concrete syntax for dummy type variables admits genuine
wenzelm@12312
   963
sort constraint specifications in type inference; e.g. "x::_::foo"
wenzelm@12312
   964
ensures that the type of "x" is of sort "foo" (but not necessarily a
wenzelm@12312
   965
type variable);
wenzelm@12280
   966
wenzelm@12280
   967
* Pure/syntax: print modes "type_brackets" and "no_type_brackets"
wenzelm@12280
   968
control output of nested => (types); the default behavior is
wenzelm@12280
   969
"type_brackets";
wenzelm@12280
   970
wenzelm@12280
   971
* Pure/syntax: builtin parse translation for "_constify" turns valued
wenzelm@11817
   972
tokens into AST constants;
wenzelm@11474
   973
wenzelm@12280
   974
* Pure/syntax: prefer later declarations of translations and print
wenzelm@12280
   975
translation functions; potential INCOMPATIBILITY: need to reverse
wenzelm@12280
   976
multiple declarations for same syntax element constant;
wenzelm@12280
   977
wenzelm@12832
   978
* Pure/show_hyps reset by default (in accordance to existing Isar
wenzelm@12832
   979
practice);
wenzelm@12832
   980
wenzelm@12280
   981
* Provers/classical: renamed addaltern to addafter, addSaltern to
wenzelm@12280
   982
addSafter;
wenzelm@12280
   983
wenzelm@12280
   984
* Provers/clasimp: ``iff'' declarations now handle conditional rules
wenzelm@12280
   985
as well;
wenzelm@12253
   986
wenzelm@12538
   987
* system: tested support for MacOS X; should be able to get Isabelle +
wenzelm@12538
   988
Proof General to work in a plain Terminal after installing Poly/ML
wenzelm@12538
   989
(e.g. from the Isabelle distribution area) and GNU bash alone
wenzelm@12538
   990
(e.g. from http://www.apple.com); full X11, XEmacs and X-Symbol
wenzelm@12538
   991
support requires further installations, e.g. from
wenzelm@12538
   992
http://fink.sourceforge.net/);
wenzelm@12538
   993
wenzelm@12280
   994
* system: support Poly/ML 4.1.1 (able to manage larger heaps);
wenzelm@11551
   995
wenzelm@12753
   996
* system: reduced base memory usage by Poly/ML (approx. 20 MB instead
wenzelm@12753
   997
of 40 MB), cf. ML_OPTIONS;
wenzelm@12753
   998
wenzelm@11633
   999
* system: Proof General keywords specification is now part of the
wenzelm@11633
  1000
Isabelle distribution (see etc/isar-keywords.el);
wenzelm@11633
  1001
wenzelm@12728
  1002
* system: support for persistent Proof General sessions (refrain from
wenzelm@12728
  1003
outdating all loaded theories on startup); user may create writable
wenzelm@12728
  1004
logic images like this: ``isabelle -q HOL Test'';
wenzelm@12597
  1005
wenzelm@11551
  1006
* system: smart selection of Isabelle process versus Isabelle
wenzelm@11572
  1007
interface, accommodates case-insensitive file systems (e.g. HFS+); may
wenzelm@11572
  1008
run both "isabelle" and "Isabelle" even if file names are badly
wenzelm@11572
  1009
damaged (executable inspects the case of the first letter of its own
wenzelm@11572
  1010
name); added separate "isabelle-process" and "isabelle-interface";
wenzelm@11551
  1011
wenzelm@12472
  1012
* system: refrain from any attempt at filtering input streams; no
wenzelm@12472
  1013
longer support ``8bit'' encoding of old isabelle font, instead proper
wenzelm@12472
  1014
iso-latin characters may now be used; the related isatools
wenzelm@12472
  1015
"symbolinput" and "nonascii" have disappeared as well;
wenzelm@12472
  1016
wenzelm@12472
  1017
* system: removed old "xterm" interface (the print modes "xterm" and
wenzelm@12472
  1018
"xterm_color" are still available for direct use in a suitable
wenzelm@12472
  1019

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES ***
nipkow@10224
  1027
paulson@11241
  1028
* HOL: please note that theories in the Library and elsewhere often use the
paulson@11241
  1029
new-style (Isar) format; to refer to their theorems in an ML script you must
wenzelm@12622
  1030
bind them to ML identifers by e.g.      val thm_name = thm "thm_name";
paulson@11241
  1031
wenzelm@11043
  1032
* HOL: inductive package no longer splits induction rule aggressively,
wenzelm@11043
  1033
but only as far as specified by the introductions given; the old
oheimb@11130
  1034
format may be recovered via ML function complete_split_rule or attribute
wenzelm@11043
  1035
'split_rule (complete)';
wenzelm@11043
  1036
wenzelm@10998
  1037
* HOL: induct renamed to lfp_induct, lfp_Tarski to lfp_unfold,
wenzelm@10998
  1038
gfp_Tarski to gfp_unfold;
nipkow@10224
  1039
paulson@10288
  1040
* HOL: contrapos, contrapos2 renamed to contrapos_nn, contrapos_pp;
paulson@10288
  1041
wenzelm@10858
  1042
* HOL: infix "dvd" now has priority 50 rather than 70 (because it is a
wenzelm@10858
  1043
relation); infix "^^" has been renamed "``"; infix "``" has been
wenzelm@10858
  1044
renamed "`"; "univalent" has been renamed "single_valued";
nipkow@10793
  1045
wenzelm@10998
  1046
* HOL/Real: "rinv" and "hrinv" replaced by overloaded "inverse"
wenzelm@10998
  1047
operation;
wenzelm@10998
  1048
nipkow@10868
  1049
* HOLCF: infix "`" has been renamed "$"; the symbol syntax is \<cdot>;
nipkow@10856
  1050
wenzelm@10391
  1051
* Isar: 'obtain' no longer declares "that" fact as simp/intro;
wenzelm@10391
  1052
wenzelm@10401
  1053
* Isar/HOL: method 'induct' now handles non-atomic goals; as a
wenzelm@10401
  1054
consequence, it is no longer monotonic wrt. the local goal context
wenzelm@10401
  1055
(which is now passed through the inductive cases);
wenzelm@10401
  1056
wenzelm@10976
  1057
* Document preparation: renamed standard symbols \<ll> to \<lless> and
wenzelm@10976
  1058
\<gg> to \<ggreater>;
wenzelm@10976
  1059
nipkow@10224

wenzelm@10245
  1061
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@10245
  1062
wenzelm@10858
  1063
* \isabellestyle{NAME} selects version of Isabelle output (currently
wenzelm@10858
  1064
available: are "it" for near math-mode best-style output, "sl" for
wenzelm@10858
  1065
slanted text style, and "tt" for plain type-writer; if no
wenzelm@10858
  1066
\isabellestyle command is given, output is according to slanted
wenzelm@10858
  1067
type-writer);
wenzelm@10858
  1068
wenzelm@10322
  1069
* support sub/super scripts (for single symbols only), input syntax is
wenzelm@10322
  1070
like this: "A\<^sup>*" or "A\<^sup>\<star>";
wenzelm@10322
  1071
wenzelm@10858
  1072
* some more standard symbols; see Appendix A of the system manual for
wenzelm@11062
  1073
the complete list of symbols defined in isabellesym.sty;
wenzelm@10858
  1074
wenzelm@10998
  1075
* improved isabelle style files; more abstract symbol implementation
wenzelm@10998
  1076
(should now use \isamath{...} and \isatext{...} in custom symbol
wenzelm@10998
  1077
definitions);
wenzelm@10998
  1078
wenzelm@10634
  1079
* antiquotation @{goals} and @{subgoals} for output of *dynamic* goals

*** Isar ***
wenzelm@10306
  1094
wenzelm@10547
  1095
* Pure: Isar now suffers initial goal statements to contain unbound
wenzelm@10547
  1096
schematic variables (this does not conform to actual readable proof
wenzelm@10547
  1097
documents, due to unpredictable outcome and non-compositional proof
wenzelm@10547
  1098
checking); users who know what they are doing may use schematic goals
wenzelm@10547
  1099
for Prolog-style synthesis of proven results;
wenzelm@10547
  1100
wenzelm@10391
  1101
* Pure: assumption method (an implicit finishing) now handles actual
wenzelm@10391
  1102
rules as well;
wenzelm@10391
  1103
wenzelm@10391
  1104
* Pure: improved 'obtain' --- moved to Pure, insert "that" into
wenzelm@10391
  1105
initial goal, declare "that" only as Pure intro (only for single
wenzelm@10391
  1106
steps); the "that" rule assumption may now be involved in implicit
wenzelm@10391
  1107
finishing, thus ".." becomes a feasible for trivial obtains;
wenzelm@10391
  1108
wenzelm@10391
  1109
* Pure: default proof step now includes 'intro_classes'; thus trivial
wenzelm@10391
  1110
instance proofs may be performed by "..";
wenzelm@10391
  1111
wenzelm@10391
  1112
* Pure: ?thesis / ?this / "..." now work for pure meta-level
wenzelm@10391
  1113
statements as well;
wenzelm@10306
  1114
wenzelm@11097
  1115
* Pure: more robust selection of calculational rules;
wenzelm@11097
  1116
wenzelm@10858
  1117
* Pure: the builtin notion of 'finished' goal now includes the ==-refl
wenzelm@10858
  1118
rule (as well as the assumption rule);
wenzelm@10858
  1119
wenzelm@10858
  1120
* Pure: 'thm_deps' command visualizes dependencies of theorems and
wenzelm@10858
  1121
lemmas, using the graph browser tool;
wenzelm@10858
  1122
wenzelm@10944
  1123
* Pure: predict failure of "show" in interactive mode;
wenzelm@10944
  1124
wenzelm@11016
  1125
* Pure: 'thms_containing' now takes actual terms as arguments;
wenzelm@11016
  1126
wenzelm@10401
  1127
* HOL: improved method 'induct' --- now handles non-atomic goals
wenzelm@10401
  1128
(potential INCOMPATIBILITY); tuned error handling;
wenzelm@10401
  1129
wenzelm@10557
  1130
* HOL: cases and induct rules now provide explicit hints about the
wenzelm@10547
  1131
number of facts to be consumed (0 for "type" and 1 for "set" rules);
wenzelm@10547
  1132
any remaining facts are inserted into the goal verbatim;
wenzelm@10547
  1133
wenzelm@10858
  1134
* HOL: local contexts (aka cases) may now contain term bindings as
wenzelm@10858
  1135
well; the 'cases' and 'induct' methods new provide a ?case binding for
wenzelm@10858
  1136
the result to be shown in each case;
wenzelm@10858
  1137
wenzelm@10770
  1138
* HOL: added 'recdef_tc' command;
wenzelm@10770
  1139
wenzelm@11016
  1140
* isatool convert assists in eliminating legacy ML scripts;

*** HOL ***
wenzelm@10245
  1144
wenzelm@10245
  1145
* HOL/Library: a collection of generic theories to be used together
wenzelm@10245
  1146
with main HOL; the theory loader path already includes this directory
wenzelm@10245
  1147
by default; the following existing theories have been moved here:
wenzelm@10245
  1148
HOL/Induct/Multiset, HOL/Induct/Acc (as Accessible_Part), HOL/While
wenzelm@10337
  1149
(as While_Combinator), HOL/Lex/Prefix (as List_Prefix);
wenzelm@10245
  1150
wenzelm@10966
  1151
* HOL/Unix: "Some aspects of Unix file-system security", a typical
wenzelm@10966
  1152
modelling and verification task performed in Isabelle/HOL +
wenzelm@10966
  1153
Isabelle/Isar + Isabelle document preparation (by Markus Wenzel).
wenzelm@10966
  1154
wenzelm@11094
  1155
* HOL/Algebra: special summation operator SUM no longer exists, it has
wenzelm@11094
  1156
been replaced by setsum; infix 'assoc' now has priority 50 (like
wenzelm@11094
  1157
'dvd'); axiom 'one_not_zero' has been moved from axclass 'ring' to
wenzelm@11094
  1158
'domain', this makes the theory consistent with mathematical
wenzelm@11094
  1159
literature;
wenzelm@11094
  1160
wenzelm@10514
  1161
* HOL basics: added overloaded operations "inverse" and "divide"
wenzelm@10726
  1162
(infix "/"), syntax for generic "abs" operation, generic summation
wenzelm@11094
  1163
operator \<Sum>;
wenzelm@10452
  1164
wenzelm@10391
  1165
* HOL/typedef: simplified package, provide more useful rules (see also
wenzelm@10391
  1166
HOL/subset.thy);
wenzelm@10391
  1167
wenzelm@10915
  1168
* HOL/datatype: induction rule for arbitrarily branching datatypes is
wenzelm@10915
  1169
now expressed as a proper nested rule (old-style tactic scripts may
wenzelm@10915
  1170
require atomize_strip_tac to cope with non-atomic premises);
wenzelm@10915
  1171
wenzelm@10915
  1172
* HOL: renamed theory "Prod" to "Product_Type", renamed "split" rule
wenzelm@10915
  1173
to "split_conv" (old name still available for compatibility);
wenzelm@10915
  1174
wenzelm@10915
  1175
* HOL: improved concrete syntax for strings (e.g. allows translation
wenzelm@10915
  1176
rules with string literals);
wenzelm@10915
  1177
paulson@12245
  1178
* HOL-Real-Hyperreal: this extends HOL-Real with the hyperreals
paulson@12245
  1179
 and Fleuriot's mechanization of analysis, including the transcendental
paulson@12245
  1180
 functions for the reals;
paulson@10756
  1181
wenzelm@11094
  1182
* HOL/Real, HOL/Hyperreal: improved arithmetic simplification;
wenzelm@10391
  1183
wenzelm@10858
  1184
paulson@10474
  1185
*** CTT ***
paulson@10474
  1186
wenzelm@10547
  1187
* CTT: x-symbol support for Pi, Sigma, -->, : (membership); note that
wenzelm@10547
  1188
"lam" is displayed as TWO lambda-symbols
paulson@10474
  1189
wenzelm@10547
  1190
* CTT: theory Main now available, containing everything (that is, Bool
wenzelm@10547
  1191
and Arith);
wenzelm@10547

  1194
*** General ***
wenzelm@10391
  1195
wenzelm@10547
  1196
* Pure: the Simplifier has been implemented properly as a derived rule
wenzelm@10547
  1197
outside of the actual kernel (at last!); the overall performance
wenzelm@10547
  1198
penalty in practical applications is about 50%, while reliability of
wenzelm@10547
  1199
the Isabelle inference kernel has been greatly improved;
wenzelm@10547
  1200
wenzelm@11112
  1201
* print modes "brackets" and "no_brackets" control output of nested =>
wenzelm@11112
  1202
(types) and ==> (props); the default behaviour is "brackets";
wenzelm@11112
  1203
wenzelm@10391
  1204
* Provers: fast_tac (and friends) now handle actual object-logic rules
wenzelm@10391
  1205
as assumptions as well;
wenzelm@10391
  1206
wenzelm@11124
  1207
* system: support Poly/ML 4.0;
wenzelm@11124
  1208
wenzelm@11124
  1209
* system: isatool install handles KDE version 1 or 2;

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES ***
paulson@8014
  1217
wenzelm@8848
  1218
* HOL: simplification of natural numbers is much changed; to partly
wenzelm@8848
  1219
recover the old behaviour (e.g. to prevent n+n rewriting to #2*n)
wenzelm@8848
  1220
issue the following ML commands:
wenzelm@8848
  1221
wenzelm@8848
  1222
  Delsimprocs Nat_Numeral_Simprocs.cancel_numerals;
wenzelm@8848
  1223
  Delsimprocs [Nat_Numeral_Simprocs.combine_numerals];
paulson@8788
  1224
wenzelm@10129
  1225
* HOL: simplification no longer dives into case-expressions; this is
wenzelm@10129
  1226
controlled by "t.weak_case_cong" for each datatype t;
wenzelm@10003
  1227
wenzelm@10003
  1228
* HOL: nat_less_induct renamed to less_induct;
wenzelm@10003
  1229
wenzelm@10003
  1230
* HOL: systematic renaming of the SOME (Eps) rules, may use isatool
wenzelm@10003
  1231
fixsome to patch .thy and .ML sources automatically;
paulson@8967
  1232
wenzelm@10003
  1233
  select_equality  -> some_equality
wenzelm@10003
  1234
  select_eq_Ex     -> some_eq_ex
wenzelm@10003
  1235
  selectI2EX       -> someI2_ex
wenzelm@10003
  1236
  selectI2         -> someI2
wenzelm@10003
  1237
  selectI          -> someI
wenzelm@10003
  1238
  select1_equality -> some1_equality
wenzelm@10003
  1239
  Eps_sym_eq       -> some_sym_eq_trivial
wenzelm@10003
  1240
  Eps_eq           -> some_eq_trivial
wenzelm@10003
  1241
wenzelm@10003
  1242
* HOL: exhaust_tac on datatypes superceded by new generic case_tac;
wenzelm@10003
  1243
wenzelm@10003
  1244
* HOL: removed obsolete theorem binding expand_if (refer to split_if
wenzelm@10003
  1245
instead);
wenzelm@10003
  1246
wenzelm@10003
  1247
* HOL: the recursion equations generated by 'recdef' are now called
wenzelm@10003
  1248
f.simps instead of f.rules;
wenzelm@10003
  1249
wenzelm@10003
  1250
* HOL: qed_spec_mp now also handles bounded ALL as well;
wenzelm@10003
  1251
wenzelm@10003
  1252
* HOL: 0 is now overloaded, so the type constraint ":: nat" may
wenzelm@10003
  1253
sometimes be needed;
wenzelm@10003
  1254
wenzelm@10003
  1255
* HOL: the constant for "f``x" is now "image" rather than "op ``";
paulson@8014
  1256
paulson@10065
  1257
* HOL: the constant for "f-``x" is now "vimage" rather than "op -``";
paulson@10065
  1258
wenzelm@9330
  1259
* HOL: the disjoint sum is now "<+>" instead of "Plus"; the cartesian
wenzelm@9330
  1260
product is now "<*>" instead of "Times"; the lexicographic product is
wenzelm@9330
  1261
now "<*lex*>" instead of "**";
nipkow@8705
  1262
wenzelm@10003
  1263
* HOL: theory Sexp is now in HOL/Induct examples (it used to be part
wenzelm@10003
  1264
of main HOL, but was unused); better use HOL's datatype package;
paulson@9971
  1265
wenzelm@10137
  1266
* HOL: removed "symbols" syntax for constant "override" of theory Map;
wenzelm@10137
  1267
the old syntax may be recovered as follows:
wenzelm@10137
  1268
wenzelm@10137
  1269
  syntax (symbols)
wenzelm@10137
  1270
    override  :: "('a ~=> 'b) => ('a ~=> 'b) => ('a ~=> 'b)"
wenzelm@10137
  1271
      (infixl "\\<oplus>" 100)
wenzelm@10137
  1272
wenzelm@8848
  1273
* HOL/Real: "rabs" replaced by overloaded "abs" function;
wenzelm@8848
  1274
wenzelm@8887
  1275
* HOL/ML: even fewer consts are declared as global (see theories Ord,
wenzelm@8887
  1276
Lfp, Gfp, WF); this only affects ML packages that refer to const names
wenzelm@8887
  1277
internally;
wenzelm@8887
  1278
wenzelm@10003
  1279
* HOL and ZF: syntax for quotienting wrt an equivalence relation
wenzelm@10003
  1280
changed from A/r to A//r;
wenzelm@9908
  1281
wenzelm@10003
  1282
* ZF: new treatment of arithmetic (nat & int) may break some old
wenzelm@10003
  1283
proofs;
wenzelm@8921
  1284
wenzelm@10003
  1285
* Isar: renamed some attributes (RS -> THEN, simplify -> simplified,
wenzelm@10003
  1286
rulify -> rule_format, elimify -> elim_format, ...);
paulson@9542
  1287
wenzelm@9941
  1288
* Isar/Provers: intro/elim/dest attributes changed; renamed
wenzelm@9941
  1289
intro/intro!/intro!! flags to intro!/intro/intro? (in most cases, one
wenzelm@9937
  1290
should have to change intro!! to intro? only); replaced "delrule" by
wenzelm@9937
  1291
"rule del";
wenzelm@9437
  1292
wenzelm@9612
  1293
* Isar/HOL: renamed "intrs" to "intros" in inductive definitions;
wenzelm@9612
  1294
wenzelm@9437
  1295
* Provers: strengthened force_tac by using new first_best_tac;
oheimb@9402
  1296
wenzelm@10003
  1297
* LaTeX document preparation: several changes of isabelle.sty (see
wenzelm@10003
  1298
lib/texinputs);
wenzelm@8729
  1299
paulson@8014
  1300
wenzelm@8487
  1301
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@8358
  1302
wenzelm@9198
  1303
* formal comments (text blocks etc.) in new-style theories may now
wenzelm@9753
  1304
contain antiquotations of thm/prop/term/typ/text to be presented
wenzelm@9753
  1305
according to latex print mode; concrete syntax is like this:
wenzelm@9753
  1306
@{term[show_types] "f(x) = a + x"};
wenzelm@9198
  1307
wenzelm@8358
  1308
* isatool mkdir provides easy setup of Isabelle session directories,
wenzelm@8518
  1309
including proper document sources;
wenzelm@8358
  1310
wenzelm@8358
  1311
* generated LaTeX sources are now deleted after successful run
wenzelm@8358
  1312
(isatool document -c); may retain a copy somewhere else via -D option
wenzelm@8358
  1313
of isatool usedir;
wenzelm@8358
  1314
wenzelm@8566
  1315
* isatool usedir -D now lets isatool latex -o sty update the Isabelle
wenzelm@10003
  1316
style files, achieving self-contained LaTeX sources and simplifying
wenzelm@10003
  1317
LaTeX debugging;
wenzelm@8566
  1318
wenzelm@8518
  1319
* old-style theories now produce (crude) LaTeX output as well;
wenzelm@8358
  1320
wenzelm@9057
  1321
* browser info session directories are now self-contained (may be put
wenzelm@9437
  1322
on WWW server seperately); improved graphs of nested sessions; removed
wenzelm@9437
  1323
graph for 'all sessions';
wenzelm@9057
  1324
wenzelm@10003
  1325
* several improvements in isabelle style files; \isabellestyle{it}
wenzelm@10003
  1326
produces fake math mode output; \isamarkupheader is now \section by
wenzelm@10003
  1327
default; see lib/texinputs/isabelle.sty etc.;
wenzelm@9489
  1328
wenzelm@8358
  1329
wenzelm@8184
  1330
*** Isar ***
wenzelm@8184
  1331
wenzelm@10003
  1332
* Isar/Pure: local results and corresponding term bindings are now
wenzelm@10003
  1333
subject to Hindley-Milner polymorphism (similar to ML); this
wenzelm@10003
  1334
accommodates incremental type-inference very nicely;
wenzelm@8283
  1335
wenzelm@10003
  1336
* Isar/Pure: new derived language element 'obtain' supports
wenzelm@10003
  1337
generalized existence reasoning;
wenzelm@8621
  1338
wenzelm@10003
  1339
* Isar/Pure: new calculational elements 'moreover' and 'ultimately'
wenzelm@10003
  1340
support accumulation of results, without applying any rules yet;
wenzelm@10003
  1341
useful to collect intermediate results without explicit name
wenzelm@10003
  1342
references, and for use with transitivity rules with more than 2
wenzelm@10003
  1343
premises;
wenzelm@8184
  1344
wenzelm@10003
  1345
* Isar/Pure: scalable support for case-analysis type proofs: new
wenzelm@10003
  1346
'case' language element refers to local contexts symbolically, as
wenzelm@10003
  1347
produced by certain proof methods; internally, case names are attached
wenzelm@10003
  1348
to theorems as "tags";
wenzelm@8440
  1349
wenzelm@10003
  1350
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'hide' removes declarations from
wenzelm@9330
  1351
class/type/const name spaces;
wenzelm@9330
  1352
wenzelm@10003
  1353
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'defs' supports option "(overloaded)" to
wenzelm@9330
  1354
indicate potential overloading;
wenzelm@9330
  1355
wenzelm@10003
  1356
* Isar/Pure: changed syntax of local blocks from {{ }} to { };
wenzelm@8621
  1357
wenzelm@10003
  1358
* Isar/Pure: syntax of sorts made 'inner', i.e. have to write
wenzelm@10003
  1359
"{a,b,c}" instead of {a,b,c};
wenzelm@9011
  1360
wenzelm@10003
  1361
* Isar/Pure now provides its own version of intro/elim/dest
wenzelm@10003
  1362
attributes; useful for building new logics, but beware of confusion
wenzelm@10003
  1363
with the version in Provers/classical;
wenzelm@9612
  1364
wenzelm@10003
  1365
* Isar/Pure: the local context of (non-atomic) goals is provided via
wenzelm@10003
  1366
case name 'antecedent';
wenzelm@8440
  1367
wenzelm@10003
  1368
* Isar/Pure: removed obsolete 'transfer' attribute (transfer of thms
wenzelm@10003
  1369
to the current context is now done automatically);
wenzelm@9383
  1370
wenzelm@10003
  1371
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'method_setup' provides a simple interface
wenzelm@10003
  1372
for definining proof methods in ML;
wenzelm@9612
  1373
wenzelm@10003
  1374
* Isar/Provers: intro/elim/dest attributes changed; renamed
wenzelm@9941
  1375
intro/intro!/intro!! flags to intro!/intro/intro? (INCOMPATIBILITY, in
wenzelm@9941
  1376
most cases, one should have to change intro!! to intro? only);
wenzelm@9941
  1377
replaced "delrule" by "rule del";
wenzelm@8283
  1378
wenzelm@10003
  1379
* Isar/Provers: new 'hypsubst' method, plain 'subst' method and
wenzelm@10003
  1380
'symmetric' attribute (the latter supercedes [RS sym]);
wenzelm@10003
  1381
wenzelm@10003
  1382
* Isar/Provers: splitter support (via 'split' attribute and 'simp'
wenzelm@10003
  1383
method modifier); 'simp' method: 'only:' modifier removes loopers as
wenzelm@10003
  1384
well (including splits);
wenzelm@10003
  1385
wenzelm@10003
  1386
* Isar/Provers: Simplifier and Classical methods now support all kind
wenzelm@10003
  1387
of modifiers used in the past, including 'cong', 'iff', etc.
wenzelm@10003
  1388
wenzelm@10003
  1389
* Isar/Provers: added 'fastsimp' and 'clarsimp' methods (combination
wenzelm@10003
  1390
of Simplifier and Classical reasoner);
wenzelm@10003
  1391
wenzelm@10003
  1392
* Isar/HOL: new proof method 'cases' and improved version of 'induct'
wenzelm@10003
  1393
now support named cases; major packages (inductive, datatype, primrec,
wenzelm@10003
  1394
recdef) support case names and properly name parameters;
wenzelm@9612
  1395
wenzelm@10003
  1396
* Isar/HOL: new transitivity rules for substitution in inequalities --
wenzelm@10003
  1397
monotonicity conditions are extracted to be proven at end of
wenzelm@10003
  1398
calculations;
wenzelm@10003
  1399
wenzelm@10003
  1400
* Isar/HOL: removed 'case_split' thm binding, should use 'cases' proof
wenzelm@10003
  1401
method anyway;
wenzelm@10003
  1402
wenzelm@10003
  1403
* Isar/HOL: removed old expand_if = split_if; theorems if_splits =
wenzelm@10003
  1404
split_if split_if_asm; datatype package provides theorems foo.splits =
wenzelm@10003
  1405
foo.split foo.split_asm for each datatype;
wenzelm@10003
  1406
wenzelm@10003
  1407
* Isar/HOL: tuned inductive package, rename "intrs" to "intros"
wenzelm@10003
  1408
(potential INCOMPATIBILITY), emulation of mk_cases feature for proof
wenzelm@10003
  1409
scripts: new 'inductive_cases' command and 'ind_cases' method; (Note:
wenzelm@10003
  1410
use "(cases (simplified))" method in proper proof texts);
wenzelm@10003
  1411
wenzelm@10003
  1412
* Isar/HOL: added global 'arith_split' attribute for 'arith' method;
wenzelm@10003
  1413
wenzelm@10003
  1414
* Isar: names of theorems etc. may be natural numbers as well;
wenzelm@10003
  1415
wenzelm@10003
  1416
* Isar: 'pr' command: optional arguments for goals_limit and
wenzelm@9724
  1417
ProofContext.prems_limit; no longer prints theory contexts, but only
wenzelm@9724
  1418
proof states;
wenzelm@8487
  1419
wenzelm@10003
  1420
* Isar: diagnostic commands 'pr', 'thm', 'prop', 'term', 'typ' admit
wenzelm@8518
  1421
additional print modes to be specified; e.g. "pr(latex)" will print
wenzelm@8518
  1422
proof state according to the Isabelle LaTeX style;
wenzelm@8487
  1423
wenzelm@10003
  1424
* Isar: improved support for emulating tactic scripts, including proof
wenzelm@9612
  1425
methods 'rule_tac' etc., 'cut_tac', 'thin_tac', 'subgoal_tac',
wenzelm@9612
  1426
'rename_tac', 'rotate_tac', 'tactic', and 'case_tac' / 'induct_tac'
wenzelm@9612
  1427
(for HOL datatypes);
wenzelm@8534
  1428
wenzelm@10003
  1429
* Isar: simplified (more robust) goal selection of proof methods: 1st
wenzelm@10003
  1430
goal, all goals, or explicit goal specifier (tactic emulation); thus
wenzelm@10003
  1431
'proof method scripts' have to be in depth-first order;
wenzelm@8673
  1432
wenzelm@10003
  1433
* Isar: tuned 'let' syntax: replaced 'as' keyword by 'and';
wenzelm@8729
  1434
wenzelm@10003
  1435
* Isar: removed 'help' command, which hasn't been too helpful anyway;
wenzelm@10003
  1436
should instead use individual commands for printing items
wenzelm@10003
  1437
(print_commands, print_methods etc.);
wenzelm@9224
  1438
wenzelm@10003
  1439
* Isar: added 'nothing' --- the empty list of theorems;

  1469
recursive procedures, by David von Oheimb;
wenzelm@10164
  1470
wenzelm@10003
  1471
* HOL/Lambda: converted into new-style theory and document;
paulson@9542
  1472
wenzelm@10003
  1473
* HOL/ex/Multiquote: example of multiple nested quotations and
wenzelm@10003
  1474
anti-quotations -- basically a generalized version of de-Bruijn
wenzelm@10003
  1475
representation; very useful in avoiding lifting of operations;
wenzelm@8848
  1476
wenzelm@9612
  1477
* HOL/record: added general record equality rule to simpset; fixed
wenzelm@9612
  1478
select-update simplification procedure to handle extended records as
wenzelm@9612
  1479
well; admit "r" as field name;
paulson@9542
  1480
paulson@8967
  1481
* HOL: 0 is now overloaded over the new sort "zero", allowing its use with
paulson@8967
  1482
other numeric types and also as the identity of groups, rings, etc.;
paulson@8967
  1483
paulson@8967
  1484
* HOL: new axclass plus_ac0 for addition with the AC-laws and 0 as identity.
paulson@8967
  1485
Types nat and int belong to this axclass;
paulson@8967
  1486
wenzelm@10003
  1487
* HOL: greatly improved simplification involving numerals of type nat, int, real:
paulson@8788
  1488
   (i + #8 + j) = Suc k simplifies to  #7 + (i + j) = k
paulson@8832
  1489
   i*j + k + j*#3*i     simplifies to  #4*(i*j) + k
paulson@8832
  1490
  two terms #m*u and #n*u are replaced by #(m+n)*u
paulson@8832
  1491
    (where #m, #n and u can implicitly be 1; this is simproc combine_numerals)
paulson@8832
  1492
  and the term/formula #m*u+x ~~ #n*u+y simplifies simplifies to #(m-n)+x ~~ y
paulson@8832
  1493
    or x ~~ #(n-m)+y, where ~~ is one of = < <= or - (simproc cancel_numerals);
paulson@8736
  1494
wenzelm@10003
  1495
* HOL: meson_tac is available (previously in ex/meson.ML); it is a
wenzelm@10003
  1496
powerful prover for predicate logic but knows nothing of clasets; see
wenzelm@10003

ex/mesontest.ML and ex/mesontest2.ML for example applications;
paulson@9835
  1498
wenzelm@8848
  1499
* HOL: new version of "case_tac" subsumes both boolean case split and
wenzelm@8440
  1500
"exhaust_tac" on datatypes; INCOMPATIBILITY: exhaust_tac no longer
wenzelm@8518

exists, may define val exhaust_tac = case_tac for ad-hoc portability;
wenzelm@8440
  1502
wenzelm@8848
  1503
* HOL: simplification no longer dives into case-expressions: only the
wenzelm@10129
  1504
selector expression is simplified, but not the remaining arms; to
wenzelm@10129
  1505
enable full simplification of case-expressions for datatype t, you may
wenzelm@10129
  1506
remove t.weak_case_cong from the simpset, either globally (Delcongs
wenzelm@10129

[thm"t.weak_case_cong"];) or locally (delcongs [...]).

wenzelm@8848
  1509
* HOL/recdef: the recursion equations generated by 'recdef' for
wenzelm@8848
  1510
function 'f' are now called f.simps instead of f.rules; if all
wenzelm@8848
  1511
termination conditions are proved automatically, these simplification
wenzelm@8848
  1512
rules are added to the simpset, as in primrec; rules may be named
wenzelm@8848
  1513
individually as well, resulting in a separate list of theorems for
wenzelm@8848
  1514
each equation;
wenzelm@8848
  1515
wenzelm@9489
  1516
* HOL/While is a new theory that provides a while-combinator. It
wenzelm@9489
  1517
permits the definition of tail-recursive functions without the
wenzelm@9489
  1518
provision of a termination measure. The latter is necessary once the
wenzelm@9489
  1519
invariant proof rule for while is applied.
nipkow@9457
  1520
wenzelm@10003
  1521

* HOL: new tactic induct_thm_tac: thm -> string -> int -> tactic
nipkow@9746
  1527
induct_tac th "x1 ... xn" expects th to have a conclusion of the form
nipkow@9746

* HOL: theory Sexp now in HOL/Induct examples (it used to be part of
wenzelm@10003
  1533
main HOL, but was unused);
nipkow@8626
  1534
wenzelm@10003
  1535
* HOL: fewer consts declared as global (e.g. have to refer to
wenzelm@10003
  1536
"Lfp.lfp" instead of "lfp" internally; affects ML packages only);
wenzelm@8887
  1537
wenzelm@10003
  1538
* HOL: tuned AST representation of nested pairs, avoiding bogus output
wenzelm@10003
  1539
in case of overlap with user translations (e.g. judgements over
wenzelm@10003
  1540
tuples); (note that the underlying logical represenation is still
wenzelm@10003

  1545
wenzelm@10003

wenzelm@10003
  1547
expressions over nat and int;
paulson@9542
  1548
wenzelm@10003
  1549
* ZF: new treatment of nat to minimize type-checking: all operators
wenzelm@10003
  1550
coerce their operands to a natural number using the function natify,
wenzelm@10003
  1551
making the algebraic laws unconditional;
paulson@9542
  1552
wenzelm@10003
  1553
* ZF: as above, for int: operators coerce their operands to an integer
wenzelm@10003
  1554
using the function intify;
paulson@9542
  1555
wenzelm@10003
  1556
* ZF: the integer library now contains many of the usual laws for the
wenzelm@10003
  1557
orderings, including $<=, and monotonicity laws for $+ and $*;
paulson@9542
  1558
wenzelm@10003
  1559
* ZF: new example ZF/ex/NatSum to demonstrate integer arithmetic
wenzelm@10003
  1560
simplification;
paulson@9388
  1561
wenzelm@10003
  1562
* FOL and ZF: AddIffs now available, giving theorems of the form P<->Q
wenzelm@10003

assumptions; note that auto_tac uses blast_tac internally as well;
wenzelm@10003
  1570
wenzelm@10003
  1571
* Provers: new functions rulify/rulify_no_asm: thm -> thm for turning
wenzelm@10003

outer -->/All/Ball into ==>/!!; qed_spec_mp now uses rulify_no_asm;
wenzelm@10003
  1573
wenzelm@9941
  1574

explicit make_elim);
wenzelm@9941
  1576
wenzelm@10003
  1577
* Provers: Blast_tac now warns of and ignores "weak elimination rules" e.g.
wenzelm@10003
  1578
  [| inj ?f;          ?f ?x = ?f ?y; ?x = ?y ==> ?W |] ==> ?W
wenzelm@10003

use instead the strong form,
wenzelm@10003
  1580
  [| inj ?f; ~ ?W ==> ?f ?x = ?f ?y; ?x = ?y ==> ?W |] ==> ?W
wenzelm@10003
  1581
in HOL, FOL and ZF the function cla_make_elim will create such rules
wenzelm@10003
  1582
from destruct-rules;

wenzelm@10003
  1595
wenzelm@9709
  1596
* system: compression of ML heaps images may now be controlled via -c
wenzelm@9709
  1597
option of isabelle and isatool usedir (currently only observed by
wenzelm@9709
  1598
Poly/ML);
wenzelm@8358
  1599
wenzelm@9981
  1600
* system: isatool installfonts may handle X-Symbol fonts as well (very
wenzelm@9981
  1601
useful for remote X11);
wenzelm@9981
  1602
wenzelm@9709
  1603
* system: provide TAGS file for Isabelle sources;
wenzelm@9052

wenzelm@9288
  1607
wenzelm@8994
  1608
* ML: renamed flags Syntax.trace_norm_ast to Syntax.trace_ast; global

  1609
timing flag supersedes proof_timing and Toplevel.trace;
wenzelm@8994
  1610
wenzelm@10003
  1611
* ML: new combinators |>> and |>>> for incremental transformations
wenzelm@10003
  1612
with secondary results (e.g. certain theory extensions):
wenzelm@10003
  1613
wenzelm@9330
  1614
* ML: PureThy.add_defs gets additional argument to indicate potential

* HOL, ZF: the function mk_cases, generated by the inductive
wenzelm@6269

        setSSolver addSSolver setSolver addSolver
nipkow@7619
  1655
is now  simpset * solver -> simpset  where `solver' is a new abstract type
nipkow@7619

for packaging solvers. A solver is created via
wenzelm@8729
  1657

wenzelm@6671
  1699

option -p DIR installs standalone binaries;
wenzelm@7215
  1705
wenzelm@7215

  1707
more robust handling of platform specific ML images for SML/NJ;
wenzelm@7215
  1708
wenzelm@7886
  1709

  1755
wenzelm@6343
  1756
* There are now decision procedures for linear arithmetic over nat and
wenzelm@6343
  1757
int:
nipkow@6131
  1758
wenzelm@6343
  1759
1. arith_tac copes with arbitrary formulae involving `=', `<', `<=',
wenzelm@6343
  1760
`+', `-', `Suc', `min', `max' and numerical constants; other subterms
wenzelm@6343
  1761
are treated as atomic; subformulae not involving type `nat' or `int'
wenzelm@6343
  1762
are ignored; quantified subformulae are ignored unless they are
wenzelm@6343
  1763
positive universal or negative existential. The tactic has to be
wenzelm@6343
  1764
invoked by hand and can be a little bit slow. In particular, the
wenzelm@6343
  1765
running time is exponential in the number of occurrences of `min' and
wenzelm@6343
  1766
`max', and `-' on `nat'.
nipkow@6131
  1767
wenzelm@6343
  1768
2. fast_arith_tac is a cut-down version of arith_tac: it only takes
wenzelm@6343
  1769
(negated) (in)equalities among the premises and the conclusion into
wenzelm@6343
  1770
account (i.e. no compound formulae) and does not know about `min' and
wenzelm@6343
  1771
`max', and `-' on `nat'. It is fast and is used automatically by the
wenzelm@6343
  1772
simplifier.
nipkow@6131
  1773
wenzelm@6343
  1774
NB: At the moment, these decision procedures do not cope with mixed
wenzelm@6343
  1775
nat/int formulae where the two parts interact, such as `m < n ==>
wenzelm@6343
  1776
int(m) < int(n)'.
oheimb@6028
  1777
wenzelm@7215
  1778
* HOL/Numeral provides a generic theory of numerals (encoded
wenzelm@7313
  1779
efficiently as bit strings); setup for types nat/int/real is in place;
wenzelm@7215
  1780
INCOMPATIBILITY: since numeral syntax is now polymorphic, rather than
wenzelm@7215
  1781

wenzelm@7215
  1782

wenzelm@7215
  1783
wenzelm@7215

wenzelm@7215
  1787

paulson@6922
  1789
paulson@7287
  1790
* An interface to the Stanford Validity Checker (SVC) is available through the
paulson@7287
  1791
tactic svc_tac.  Propositional tautologies and theorems of linear arithmetic
paulson@7287
  1792
are proved automatically.  SVC must be installed separately, and its results
paulson@7287
  1793
must be TAKEN ON TRUST (Isabelle does not check the proofs, but tags any
paulson@7287
  1794
invocation of the underlying oracle).  For SVC see

  1839
    "While B C s = (if B s then While B C (C s) else s)"

* refined token_translation interface; INCOMPATIBILITY: output length
wenzelm@6343
  1927
now of type real instead of int;
wenzelm@6343
  1928
wenzelm@7196
  1929
* theory loader actions may be traced via new ThyInfo.add_hook
wenzelm@7196
  1930
interface (see src/Pure/Thy/thy_info.ML); example application: keep
wenzelm@7196
  1931
your own database of information attached to *whole* theories -- as
wenzelm@7196
  1932
opposed to intra-theory data slots offered via TheoryDataFun;
wenzelm@7196
  1933
wenzelm@7647
  1934
* proper handling of dangling sort hypotheses (at last!);
wenzelm@7647
  1935
Thm.strip_shyps and Drule.strip_shyps_warning take care of removing
wenzelm@7647
  1936
extra sort hypotheses that can be witnessed from the type signature;
wenzelm@7986
  1937
the force_strip_shyps flag is gone, any remaining shyps are simply
wenzelm@7986
  1938
left in the theorem (with a warning issued by strip_shyps_warning);

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES (see below for more details) ***
wenzelm@4842
  1946
wenzelm@5726
  1947
* several changes of automated proof tools;
wenzelm@5373
  1948
wenzelm@5726
  1949
* HOL: major changes to the inductive and datatype packages, including
wenzelm@5726
  1950
some minor incompatibilities of theory syntax;
berghofe@5214
  1951
wenzelm@5726
  1952
* HOL: renamed r^-1 to 'converse' from 'inverse'; 'inj_onto' is now
wenzelm@5217
  1953
called `inj_on';
paulson@5160
  1954
nipkow@5275
  1955
* HOL: removed duplicate thms in Arith:
nipkow@5275
  1956
  less_imp_add_less  should be replaced by  trans_less_add1
nipkow@5275
  1957
  le_imp_add_le      should be replaced by  trans_le_add1
paulson@5160
  1958
wenzelm@5726
  1959
* HOL: unary minus is now overloaded (new type constraints may be
wenzelm@5726
  1960
required);
paulson@5490
  1961
wenzelm@5726
  1962
* HOL and ZF: unary minus for integers is now #- instead of #~.  In
wenzelm@5726
  1963
ZF, expressions such as n#-1 must be changed to n#- 1, since #-1 is
wenzelm@5726
  1964
now taken as an integer constant.
paulson@5541
  1965
wenzelm@5726
  1966
* Pure: ML function 'theory_of' renamed to 'theory';
wenzelm@5397
  1967
wenzelm@5363
  1968
wenzelm@5127
  1969
*** Proof tools ***
nipkow@4880
  1970
nipkow@5657
  1971
* Simplifier:
nipkow@5657
  1972
  1. Asm_full_simp_tac is now more aggressive.
nipkow@5657
  1973
     1. It will sometimes reorient premises if that increases their power to
nipkow@5657
  1974
        simplify.
nipkow@5657
  1975
     2. It does no longer proceed strictly from left to right but may also
nipkow@5657
  1976
        rotate premises to achieve further simplification.
nipkow@5657
  1977
     For compatibility reasons there is now Asm_lr_simp_tac which is like the
nipkow@5657
  1978
     old Asm_full_simp_tac in that it does not rotate premises.
nipkow@5657
  1979
  2. The simplifier now knows a little bit about nat-arithmetic.
nipkow@4880
  1980
wenzelm@5127
  1981
* Classical reasoner: wrapper mechanism for the classical reasoner now
wenzelm@5127
  1982
allows for selected deletion of wrappers, by introduction of names for
wenzelm@5127
  1983
wrapper functionals.  This implies that addbefore, addSbefore,
wenzelm@5127
  1984
addaltern, and addSaltern now take a pair (name, tactic) as argument,
wenzelm@5127
  1985
and that adding two tactics with the same name overwrites the first
wenzelm@5127
  1986
one (emitting a warning).
oheimb@4824
  1987
  type wrapper = (int -> tactic) -> (int -> tactic)
oheimb@4649
  1988
  setWrapper, setSWrapper, compWrapper and compSWrapper are replaced by
oheimb@4824
  1989
  addWrapper, addSWrapper: claset * (string * wrapper) -> claset
oheimb@4824
  1990
  delWrapper, delSWrapper: claset *  string            -> claset
oheimb@4649
  1991
  getWrapper is renamed to appWrappers, getSWrapper to appSWrappers;
oheimb@4649
  1992
wenzelm@5705
  1993
* Classical reasoner: addbefore/addSbefore now have APPEND/ORELSE
wenzelm@5726
  1994
semantics; addbefore now affects only the unsafe part of step_tac
wenzelm@5726
  1995
etc.; this affects addss/auto_tac/force_tac, so EXISTING PROOFS MAY
wenzelm@5726
  1996
FAIL, but proofs should be fixable easily, e.g. by replacing Auto_tac
wenzelm@5726
  1997
by Force_tac;
oheimb@5524
  1998
wenzelm@5726
  1999
* Classical reasoner: setwrapper to setWrapper and compwrapper to
wenzelm@5726
  2000
compWrapper; added safe wrapper (and access functions for it);
oheimb@5524
  2001
wenzelm@5127
  2002
* HOL/split_all_tac is now much faster and fails if there is nothing
wenzelm@5726
  2003
to split.  Some EXISTING PROOFS MAY REQUIRE ADAPTION because the order
wenzelm@5726
  2004
and the names of the automatically generated variables have changed.
wenzelm@5726
  2005
split_all_tac has moved within claset() from unsafe wrappers to safe
wenzelm@5726
  2006
wrappers, which means that !!-bound variables are split much more
wenzelm@5726
  2007
aggressively, and safe_tac and clarify_tac now split such variables.
wenzelm@5726
  2008
If this splitting is not appropriate, use delSWrapper "split_all_tac".
wenzelm@5726
  2009
Note: the same holds for record_split_tac, which does the job of
wenzelm@5726
  2010
split_all_tac for record fields.
wenzelm@5127
  2011
wenzelm@5726
  2012
* HOL/Simplifier: Rewrite rules for case distinctions can now be added
wenzelm@5726
  2013
permanently to the default simpset using Addsplits just like
wenzelm@5726
  2014
Addsimps. They can be removed via Delsplits just like
wenzelm@5726
  2015
Delsimps. Lower-case versions are also available.
wenzelm@5127
  2016
wenzelm@5726
  2017
* HOL/Simplifier: The rule split_if is now part of the default
wenzelm@5726
  2018
simpset. This means that the simplifier will eliminate all occurrences
wenzelm@5726
  2019
of if-then-else in the conclusion of a goal. To prevent this, you can
wenzelm@5726
  2020
either remove split_if completely from the default simpset by
wenzelm@5726
  2021
`Delsplits [split_if]' or remove it in a specific call of the
wenzelm@5726
  2022
simplifier using `... delsplits [split_if]'.  You can also add/delete
wenzelm@5726
  2023
other case splitting rules to/from the default simpset: every datatype
wenzelm@5726
  2024
generates suitable rules `split_t_case' and `split_t_case_asm' (where
wenzelm@5726
  2025
t is the name of the datatype).
wenzelm@5127
  2026
wenzelm@5726
  2027
* Classical reasoner / Simplifier combination: new force_tac (and
wenzelm@5127
  2028
derivatives Force_tac, force) combines rewriting and classical
wenzelm@5127
  2029
reasoning (and whatever other tools) similarly to auto_tac, but is
wenzelm@5726
  2030
aimed to solve the given subgoal completely.
wenzelm@5127
  2031
wenzelm@5127
  2032
wenzelm@5127
  2033
*** General ***
wenzelm@5127
  2034
wenzelm@5217
  2035
* new top-level commands `Goal' and `Goalw' that improve upon `goal'
wenzelm@5127
  2036
and `goalw': the theory is no longer needed as an explicit argument -
wenzelm@5127
  2037
the current theory context is used; assumptions are no longer returned
wenzelm@5127
  2038
at the ML-level unless one of them starts with ==> or !!; it is
wenzelm@5217
  2039
recommended to convert to these new commands using isatool fixgoal
wenzelm@5217
  2040
(backup your sources first!);
wenzelm@4842
  2041
wenzelm@5217
  2042
* new top-level commands 'thm' and 'thms' for retrieving theorems from
wenzelm@5207
  2043
the current theory context, and 'theory' to lookup stored theories;
paulson@4806
  2044
paulson@5722
  2045
* new theory section 'locale' for declaring constants, assumptions and
paulson@5722
  2046
definitions that have local scope;
paulson@5722
  2047
wenzelm@5127
  2048
* new theory section 'nonterminals' for purely syntactic types;
wenzelm@4858
  2049
wenzelm@5127
  2050
* new theory section 'setup' for generic ML setup functions
wenzelm@5127
  2051
(e.g. package initialization);
wenzelm@4869
  2052
wenzelm@5131
  2053
* the distribution now includes Isabelle icons: see
wenzelm@5131
  2054
lib/logo/isabelle-{small,tiny}.xpm;
wenzelm@5131
  2055
wenzelm@5363
  2056
* isatool install - install binaries with absolute references to
wenzelm@5363
  2057
ISABELLE_HOME/bin;
wenzelm@5363
  2058
wenzelm@5572
  2059
* isatool logo -- create instances of the Isabelle logo (as EPS);
wenzelm@5572
  2060
wenzelm@5407
  2061
* print mode 'emacs' reserved for Isamode;
wenzelm@5407
  2062
wenzelm@5726
  2063
* support multiple print (ast) translations per constant name;
wenzelm@5726
  2064
wenzelm@6925
  2065
* theorems involving oracles are now printed with a suffixed [!];
wenzelm@6925
  2066
wenzelm@4711
  2067
paulson@4661
  2068
*** HOL ***
paulson@4661
  2069
wenzelm@5710
  2070
* there is now a tutorial on Isabelle/HOL (do 'isatool doc tutorial');
nipkow@5709
  2071
wenzelm@5217
  2072
* HOL/inductive package reorganized and improved: now supports mutual
paulson@5267
  2073
definitions such as
wenzelm@5217
  2074
wenzelm@5217
  2075
  inductive EVEN ODD
wenzelm@5217
  2076
    intrs
wenzelm@5217
  2077
      null "0 : EVEN"
wenzelm@5217
  2078
      oddI "n : EVEN ==> Suc n : ODD"
wenzelm@5217
  2079
      evenI "n : ODD ==> Suc n : EVEN"
wenzelm@5217
  2080
wenzelm@5217
  2081
new theorem list "elims" contains an elimination rule for each of the
wenzelm@5217
  2082
recursive sets; inductive definitions now handle disjunctive premises
wenzelm@5217
  2083
correctly (also ZF);
berghofe@5214
  2084
wenzelm@5217
  2085
INCOMPATIBILITIES: requires Inductive as an ancestor; component
wenzelm@5217
  2086
"mutual_induct" no longer exists - the induction rule is always
wenzelm@5217
  2087
contained in "induct";
wenzelm@5217
  2088
wenzelm@5217
  2089
wenzelm@5217
  2090
* HOL/datatype package re-implemented and greatly improved: now
paulson@5267
  2091
supports mutually recursive datatypes such as
wenzelm@5217
  2092
wenzelm@5217
  2093
  datatype
wenzelm@5217
  2094
    'a aexp = IF_THEN_ELSE ('a bexp) ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
  2095
            | SUM ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
  2096
            | DIFF ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
  2097
            | NUM 'a
wenzelm@5217
  2098
  and
wenzelm@5217
  2099
    'a bexp = LESS ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
  2100
            | AND ('a bexp) ('a bexp)
wenzelm@5217
  2101
            | OR ('a bexp) ('a bexp)
wenzelm@5217
  2102
paulson@5267
  2103
as well as indirectly recursive datatypes such as
berghofe@5214
  2104
wenzelm@5217
  2105
  datatype
wenzelm@5217
  2106
    ('a, 'b) term = Var 'a
wenzelm@5217
  2107
                  | App 'b ((('a, 'b) term) list)
berghofe@5214
  2108
wenzelm@5217
  2109
The new tactic  mutual_induct_tac [<var_1>, ..., <var_n>] i  performs
wenzelm@5217
  2110
induction on mutually / indirectly recursive datatypes.
wenzelm@5217
  2111
wenzelm@5217
  2112
Primrec equations are now stored in theory and can be accessed via
wenzelm@5217
  2113
<function_name>.simps.
wenzelm@5217
  2114
wenzelm@5217
  2115
INCOMPATIBILITIES:
berghofe@5214
  2116
wenzelm@5217
  2117
  - Theories using datatypes must now have theory Datatype as an
wenzelm@5217
  2118
    ancestor.
wenzelm@5217
  2119
  - The specific <typename>.induct_tac no longer exists - use the
wenzelm@5217
  2120
    generic induct_tac instead.
berghofe@5226
  2121
  - natE has been renamed to nat.exhaust - use exhaust_tac
wenzelm@5217
  2122
    instead of res_inst_tac ... natE. Note that the variable
berghofe@5226
  2123
    names in nat.exhaust differ from the names in natE, this
wenzelm@5217
  2124
    may cause some "fragile" proofs to fail.
wenzelm@5217
  2125
  - The theorems split_<typename>_case and split_<typename>_case_asm
wenzelm@5217
  2126
    have been renamed to <typename>.split and <typename>.split_asm.
wenzelm@5217
  2127
  - Since default sorts of type variables are now handled correctly,
wenzelm@5217
  2128
    some datatype definitions may have to be annotated with explicit
wenzelm@5217
  2129
    sort constraints.
wenzelm@5217
  2130
  - Primrec definitions no longer require function name and type
wenzelm@5217
  2131
    of recursive argument.
berghofe@5214
  2132
wenzelm@5217
  2133
Consider using isatool fixdatatype to adapt your theories and proof
wenzelm@5217
  2134
scripts to the new package (backup your sources first!).
wenzelm@5217
  2135
wenzelm@5217
  2136
wenzelm@5726
  2137
* HOL/record package: considerably improved implementation; now
wenzelm@5726
  2138
includes concrete syntax for record types, terms, updates; theorems
wenzelm@5726
  2139
for surjective pairing and splitting !!-bound record variables; proof
wenzelm@5726
  2140
support is as follows:
wenzelm@5726
  2141
wenzelm@5726
  2142
  1) standard conversions (selectors or updates applied to record
wenzelm@5726
  2143
constructor terms) are part of the standard simpset;
wenzelm@5726
  2144
wenzelm@5726
  2145
  2) inject equations of the form ((x, y) = (x', y')) == x=x' & y=y' are
wenzelm@5726
  2146
made part of standard simpset and claset via addIffs;
wenzelm@5726
  2147
wenzelm@5726
  2148
  3) a tactic for record field splitting (record_split_tac) is part of
wenzelm@5726
  2149
the standard claset (addSWrapper);
wenzelm@5726
  2150
wenzelm@5726
  2151
To get a better idea about these rules you may retrieve them via
wenzelm@5726
  2152
something like 'thms "foo.simps"' or 'thms "foo.iffs"', where "foo" is
wenzelm@5726
  2153
the name of your record type.
wenzelm@5726
  2154
wenzelm@5726
  2155
The split tactic 3) conceptually simplifies by the following rule:
wenzelm@5726
  2156
wenzelm@5726
  2157
  "(!!x. PROP ?P x) == (!!a b. PROP ?P (a, b))"
wenzelm@5726
  2158
wenzelm@5726
  2159
Thus any record variable that is bound by meta-all will automatically
wenzelm@5726
  2160
blow up into some record constructor term, consequently the
wenzelm@5726
  2161
simplifications of 1), 2) apply.  Thus force_tac, auto_tac etc. shall
wenzelm@5726
  2162
solve record problems automatically.
wenzelm@5726
  2163
berghofe@5214
  2164
wenzelm@5125
  2165
* reorganized the main HOL image: HOL/Integ and String loaded by
wenzelm@5125
  2166
default; theory Main includes everything;
wenzelm@5125
  2167
paulson@5650
  2168
* automatic simplification of integer sums and comparisons, using cancellation;
paulson@5650
  2169
oheimb@5526
  2170
* added option_map_eq_Some and not_Some_eq to the default simpset and claset;
wenzelm@5127
  2171
wenzelm@5127
  2172
* added disj_not1 = "(~P | Q) = (P --> Q)" to the default simpset;
wenzelm@5127
  2173
wenzelm@5127
  2174
* many new identities for unions, intersections, set difference, etc.;
wenzelm@5127
  2175
wenzelm@5127
  2176
* expand_if, expand_split, expand_sum_case and expand_nat_case are now
wenzelm@5127
  2177
called split_if, split_split, split_sum_case and split_nat_case (to go
wenzelm@5127
  2178
with add/delsplits);
wenzelm@5125
  2179
wenzelm@5127
  2180
* HOL/Prod introduces simplification procedure unit_eq_proc rewriting
wenzelm@5127
  2181
(?x::unit) = (); this is made part of the default simpset, which COULD
wenzelm@5127
  2182
MAKE EXISTING PROOFS FAIL under rare circumstances (consider
wenzelm@5207
  2183
'Delsimprocs [unit_eq_proc];' as last resort); also note that
wenzelm@5207
  2184
unit_abs_eta_conv is added in order to counter the effect of
wenzelm@5207
  2185
unit_eq_proc on (%u::unit. f u), replacing it by f rather than by
wenzelm@5207
  2186
%u.f();
wenzelm@5125
  2187
wenzelm@5217
  2188
* HOL/Fun INCOMPATIBILITY: `inj_onto' is now called `inj_on' (which
wenzelm@5217
  2189
makes more sense);
berghofe@5109
  2190
paulson@5475
  2191
* HOL/Set INCOMPATIBILITY: rule `equals0D' is now a well-formed destruct rule;
paulson@5475
  2192
  It and 'sym RS equals0D' are now in the default  claset, giving automatic
paulson@5475
  2193
  disjointness reasoning but breaking a few old proofs.
paulson@5267
  2194
wenzelm@5217
  2195
* HOL/Relation INCOMPATIBILITY: renamed the relational operator r^-1
wenzelm@5217
  2196
to 'converse' from 'inverse' (for compatibility with ZF and some
wenzelm@5217
  2197
literature);
wenzelm@5085
  2198
wenzelm@5127
  2199
* HOL/recdef can now declare non-recursive functions, with {} supplied as
wenzelm@5127
  2200
the well-founded relation;
oheimb@4838
  2201
paulson@5490
  2202
* HOL/Set INCOMPATIBILITY: the complement of set A is now written -A instead of

* HOL/Update: new theory of function updates:
wenzelm@5127
  2207
    f(a:=b) == %x. if x=a then b else f x
wenzelm@5127
  2208
may also be iterated as in f(a:=b,c:=d,...);
nipkow@5077

* HOL/Vimage: new theory for inverse image of a function, syntax f-``B;
paulson@4899
  2211
nipkow@5282
  2212
* HOL/List:
nipkow@5282
  2213
  - new function list_update written xs[i:=v] that updates the i-th
nipkow@5282
  2214
    list position. May also be iterated as in xs[i:=a,j:=b,...].
nipkow@5428
  2215
  - new function `upt' written [i..j(] which generates the list
nipkow@5428
  2216
    [i,i+1,...,j-1], i.e. the upper bound is excluded. To include the upper
nipkow@5428
  2217
    bound write [i..j], which is a shorthand for [i..j+1(].
nipkow@5282
  2218
  - new lexicographic orderings and corresponding wellfoundedness theorems.
paulson@4779
  2219
wenzelm@5127
  2220
* HOL/Arith:
wenzelm@5127
  2221
  - removed 'pred' (predecessor) function;
wenzelm@5127
  2222
  - generalized some theorems about n-1;
wenzelm@5127
  2223
  - many new laws about "div" and "mod";
wenzelm@5127
  2224
  - new laws about greatest common divisors (see theory ex/Primes);
oheimb@4766
  2225
wenzelm@5127
  2226
* HOL/Relation: renamed the relational operator r^-1 "converse"
wenzelm@4842
  2227
instead of "inverse";
wenzelm@4711
  2228
nipkow@5651
  2229
* HOL/Induct/Multiset: a theory of multisets, including the wellfoundedness
nipkow@5651
  2230
  of the multiset ordering;
nipkow@5651
  2231
wenzelm@5127
  2232
* directory HOL/Real: a construction of the reals using Dedekind cuts
nipkow@5651
  2233
  (not included by default);
nipkow@4835
  2234
wenzelm@5127
  2235
* directory HOL/UNITY: Chandy and Misra's UNITY formalism;
wenzelm@4711
  2236
nipkow@5651
  2237
* directory HOL/Hoare: a new version of Hoare logic which permits many-sorted
nipkow@5651
  2238
  programs, i.e. different program variables may have different types.
nipkow@5651

* calling (stac rew i) now fails if "rew" has no effect on the goal
paulson@5142
  2241
  [previously, this check worked only if the rewrite rule was unconditional]
paulson@5308
  2242
  Now rew can involve either definitions or equalities (either == or =).

*** ZF ***
paulson@4879
  2246
paulson@5332
  2247
* theory Main includes everything; INCOMPATIBILITY: theory ZF.thy contains
paulson@5332
  2248
  only the theorems proved on ZF.ML;
paulson@5160
  2249
paulson@5475
  2250
* ZF INCOMPATIBILITY: rule `equals0D' is now a well-formed destruct rule;
paulson@5475
  2251
  It and 'sym RS equals0D' are now in the default  claset, giving automatic
paulson@5475
  2252
  disjointness reasoning but breaking a few old proofs.
paulson@5267
  2253
paulson@5160
  2254
* ZF/Update: new theory of function updates
paulson@5160
  2255
    with default rewrite rule  f(x:=y) ` z = if(z=x, y, f`z)
paulson@5160

wenzelm@5251
  2271
also src/Pure/README;
wenzelm@5207
  2272
wenzelm@5008
  2273
* improved the theory data mechanism to support encapsulation (data
wenzelm@5008
  2274
kind name replaced by private Object.kind, acting as authorization
wenzelm@5373
  2275
key); new type-safe user interface via functor TheoryDataFun; generic
wenzelm@5373
  2276
print_data function becomes basically useless;
wenzelm@5002
  2277
wenzelm@5251
  2278
* removed global_names compatibility flag -- all theory declarations
wenzelm@5251
  2279
are qualified by default;
wenzelm@5251
  2280
wenzelm@5085
  2281
* module Pure/Syntax now offers quote / antiquote translation
wenzelm@5085
  2282
functions (useful for Hoare logic etc. with implicit dependencies);
wenzelm@5373
  2283
see HOL/ex/Antiquote for an example use;
wenzelm@5085
  2284
wenzelm@5127
  2285
* Simplifier now offers conversions (asm_)(full_)rewrite: simpset ->
wenzelm@5127
  2286
cterm -> thm;
wenzelm@5127
  2287
wenzelm@5207
  2288
* new tactical CHANGED_GOAL for checking that a tactic modifies a
wenzelm@5207
  2289
subgoal;
paulson@5142
  2290
wenzelm@5251
  2291
* Display.print_goals function moved to Locale.print_goals;
wenzelm@5251
  2292
wenzelm@5731
  2293
* standard print function for goals supports current_goals_markers
wenzelm@5731
  2294
variable for marking begin of proof, end of proof, start of goal; the
wenzelm@5731
  2295
default is ("", "", ""); setting current_goals_markers := ("<proof>",
wenzelm@5731
  2296
"</proof>", "<goal>") causes SGML like tagged proof state printing,

  2304
*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES (see below for more details) ***
wenzelm@4410
  2305
wenzelm@4410
  2306
* changed lexical syntax of terms / types: dots made part of long
wenzelm@4410
  2307
identifiers, e.g. "%x.x" no longer possible, should be "%x. x";
wenzelm@4410
  2308
wenzelm@4410
  2309
* simpset (and claset) reference variable replaced by functions
wenzelm@4410
  2310
simpset / simpset_ref;
wenzelm@4410
  2311
wenzelm@4410
  2312
* no longer supports theory aliases (via merge) and non-trivial
wenzelm@4410
  2313
implicit merge of thms' signatures;
wenzelm@4410
  2314
wenzelm@4410
  2315
* most internal names of constants changed due to qualified names;
wenzelm@4410
  2316
wenzelm@4410
  2317
* changed Pure/Sequence interface (see Pure/seq.ML);
wenzelm@4410
  2318
wenzelm@3454
  2319
paulson@3715
  2320
*** General Changes ***
paulson@3715
  2321
wenzelm@4174
  2322
* hierachically structured name spaces (for consts, types, axms, thms
wenzelm@3943
  2323
etc.); new lexical class 'longid' (e.g. Foo.bar.x) may render much of
wenzelm@4108
  2324
old input syntactically incorrect (e.g. "%x.x"); COMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@4108
  2325
isatool fixdots ensures space after dots (e.g. "%x. x"); set
wenzelm@4174
  2326
long_names for fully qualified output names; NOTE: ML programs
wenzelm@4174
  2327
(special tactics, packages etc.) referring to internal names may have
wenzelm@4174
  2328
to be adapted to cope with fully qualified names; in case of severe
wenzelm@4174
  2329
backward campatibility problems try setting 'global_names' at compile
wenzelm@4174
  2330
time to have enrything declared within a flat name space; one may also
wenzelm@4174
  2331
fine tune name declarations in theories via the 'global' and 'local'
wenzelm@4174
  2332
section;
wenzelm@4108
  2333
wenzelm@4108
  2334
* reimplemented the implicit simpset and claset using the new anytype
wenzelm@4108
  2335
data filed in signatures; references simpset:simpset ref etc. are
wenzelm@4108
  2336
replaced by functions simpset:unit->simpset and
wenzelm@4108
  2337
simpset_ref:unit->simpset ref; COMPATIBILITY: use isatool fixclasimp
wenzelm@4108
  2338
to patch your ML files accordingly;
paulson@3856
  2339
wenzelm@3857
  2340
* HTML output now includes theory graph data for display with Java
wenzelm@3857
  2341
applet or isatool browser; data generated automatically via isatool
wenzelm@3901
  2342
usedir (see -i option, ISABELLE_USEDIR_OPTIONS);
wenzelm@3857
  2343
paulson@3856
  2344
* defs may now be conditional; improved rewrite_goals_tac to handle
paulson@3856
  2345
conditional equations;
paulson@3856
  2346
wenzelm@4174
  2347
* defs now admits additional type arguments, using TYPE('a) syntax;
wenzelm@4174
  2348
wenzelm@3901
  2349
* theory aliases via merge (e.g. M=A+B+C) no longer supported, always
wenzelm@3901
  2350
creates a new theory node; implicit merge of thms' signatures is
wenzelm@4112
  2351
restricted to 'trivial' ones; COMPATIBILITY: one may have to use
wenzelm@3901
  2352
transfer:theory->thm->thm in (rare) cases;
wenzelm@3901
  2353
wenzelm@3968
  2354
* improved handling of draft signatures / theories; draft thms (and
wenzelm@3968
  2355
ctyps, cterms) are automatically promoted to real ones;
wenzelm@3968
  2356
wenzelm@3901
  2357
* slightly changed interfaces for oracles: admit many per theory, named
wenzelm@3901
  2358
(e.g. oracle foo = mlfun), additional name argument for invoke_oracle;
wenzelm@3901
  2359
wenzelm@3901
  2360
* print_goals: optional output of const types (set show_consts and
wenzelm@3901
  2361
show_types);
wenzelm@3851
  2362
wenzelm@4388
  2363
* improved output of warnings (###) and errors (***);
wenzelm@3697
  2364
paulson@4178
  2365
* subgoal_tac displays a warning if the new subgoal has type variables;
paulson@4178
  2366
paulson@3715
  2367
* removed old README and Makefiles;
wenzelm@3697
  2368
paulson@3856
  2369
* replaced print_goals_ref hook by print_current_goals_fn and result_error_fn;
wenzelm@3670
  2370
paulson@3715
  2371
* removed obsolete init_pps and init_database;
paulson@3715
  2372
paulson@3715
  2373
* deleted the obsolete tactical STATE, which was declared by
paulson@3715
  2374
    fun STATE tacfun st = tacfun st st;
paulson@3715
  2375
wenzelm@4388
  2376
* cd and use now support path variables, e.g. $ISABELLE_HOME, or ~
wenzelm@4388
  2377
(which abbreviates $HOME);
wenzelm@4269
  2378
wenzelm@4269
  2379
* changed Pure/Sequence interface (see Pure/seq.ML); COMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@4269
  2380
use isatool fixseq to adapt your ML programs (this works for fully
wenzelm@4269
  2381
qualified references to the Sequence structure only!);
wenzelm@4269
  2382
wenzelm@4381
  2383
* use_thy no longer requires writable current directory; it always
wenzelm@4381
  2384
reloads .ML *and* .thy file, if either one is out of date;
wenzelm@4269
  2385
paulson@3715
  2386
paulson@3715
  2387
*** Classical Reasoner ***
paulson@3715
  2388
wenzelm@3744
  2389
* Clarify_tac, clarify_tac, clarify_step_tac, Clarify_step_tac: new
wenzelm@3744
  2390
tactics that use classical reasoning to simplify a subgoal without
wenzelm@3744
  2391
splitting it into several subgoals;
paulson@3715
  2392
paulson@3719
  2393
* Safe_tac: like safe_tac but uses the default claset;
paulson@3719
  2394
paulson@3715
  2395
paulson@3715
  2396
*** Simplifier ***
paulson@3715
  2397
paulson@3715
  2398
* added simplification meta rules:
paulson@3715
  2399
    (asm_)(full_)simplify: simpset -> thm -> thm;
paulson@3715
  2400
paulson@3715
  2401
* simplifier.ML no longer part of Pure -- has to be loaded by object
paulson@3715
  2402
logics (again);
paulson@3715
  2403
paulson@3715
  2404
* added prems argument to simplification procedures;
paulson@3715
  2405
paulson@4325
  2406
* HOL, FOL, ZF: added infix function `addsplits':
paulson@4325
  2407
  instead of `<simpset> setloop (split_tac <thms>)'
paulson@4325
  2408
  you can simply write `<simpset> addsplits <thms>'
paulson@4325
  2409
paulson@3715
  2410
paulson@3715
  2411
*** Syntax ***
paulson@3715
  2412
wenzelm@4174
  2413
* TYPE('a) syntax for type reflection terms;
wenzelm@4174
  2414
wenzelm@3985
  2415
* no longer handles consts with name "" -- declare as 'syntax' instead;
paulson@3856
  2416
paulson@3856
  2417
* pretty printer: changed order of mixfix annotation preference (again!);
wenzelm@3846
  2418
paulson@3715
  2419
* Pure: fixed idt/idts vs. pttrn/pttrns syntactic categories;
paulson@3715
  2420
paulson@3715
  2421
paulson@3715
  2422
*** HOL ***
paulson@3715
  2423
wenzelm@5726
  2424
* HOL: there is a new splitter `split_asm_tac' that can be used e.g.
oheimb@4189
  2425
  with `addloop' of the simplifier to faciliate case splitting in premises.
oheimb@4189
  2426
nipkow@4035
  2427
* HOL/TLA: Stephan Merz's formalization of Lamport's Temporal Logic of Actions;
wenzelm@3985
  2428
wenzelm@3985
  2429
* HOL/Auth: new protocol proofs including some for the Internet
nipkow@4035
  2430
  protocol TLS;
wenzelm@3985
  2431
wenzelm@4125
  2432
* HOL/Map: new theory of `maps' a la VDM;
nipkow@3982
  2433
wenzelm@4335
  2434
* HOL/simplifier: simplification procedures nat_cancel_sums for
wenzelm@4335
  2435
cancelling out common nat summands from =, <, <= (in)equalities, or
wenzelm@4335
  2436
differences; simplification procedures nat_cancel_factor for
wenzelm@4335
  2437
cancelling common factor from =, <, <= (in)equalities over natural
wenzelm@4373
  2438
sums; nat_cancel contains both kinds of procedures, it is installed by
wenzelm@4373
  2439
default in Arith.thy -- this COULD MAKE EXISTING PROOFS FAIL;
wenzelm@4335
  2440
nipkow@3580
  2441
* HOL/simplifier: terms of the form
paulson@4325
  2442
  `? x. P1(x) & ... & Pn(x) & x=t & Q1(x) & ... Qn(x)'  (or t=x)
nipkow@3580
  2443
  are rewritten to
nipkow@4035
  2444
  `P1(t) & ... & Pn(t) & Q1(t) & ... Qn(t)',
nipkow@4035
  2445
  and those of the form
paulson@4325
  2446
  `! x. P1(x) & ... & Pn(x) & x=t & Q1(x) & ... Qn(x) --> R(x)'  (or t=x)
nipkow@4035
  2447
  are rewritten to
nipkow@4035
  2448
  `P1(t) & ... & Pn(t) & Q1(t) & ... Qn(t) --> R(t)',
nipkow@4035
  2449
nipkow@4035
  2450
* HOL/datatype
nipkow@4035
  2451
  Each datatype `t' now comes with a theorem `split_t_case' of the form
nipkow@3580
  2452
nipkow@4035
  2453
  P(t_case f1 ... fn x) =
nipkow@4035
  2454
     ( (!y1 ... ym1. x = C1 y1 ... ym1 --> P(f1 y1 ... ym1)) &
nipkow@4035
  2455
        ...
oheimb@4189
  2456
       (!y1 ... ymn. x = Cn y1 ... ymn --> P(f1 y1 ... ymn))
nipkow@4035
  2457
     )
nipkow@4035
  2458
oheimb@4930
  2459
  and a theorem `split_t_case_asm' of the form
oheimb@4189
  2460
oheimb@4189
  2461
  P(t_case f1 ... fn x) =
oheimb@4189
  2462
    ~( (? y1 ... ym1. x = C1 y1 ... ym1 & ~P(f1 y1 ... ym1)) |
oheimb@4189
  2463
        ...
oheimb@4189
  2464
       (? y1 ... ymn. x = Cn y1 ... ymn & ~P(f1 y1 ... ymn))
oheimb@4189
  2465
     )
oheimb@4930
  2466
  which can be added to a simpset via `addsplits'. The existing theorems
oheimb@4930
  2467
  expand_list_case and expand_option_case have been renamed to
oheimb@4930
  2468
  split_list_case and split_option_case.
oheimb@4189
  2469
nipkow@4361
  2470
* HOL/Arithmetic:
nipkow@4361
  2471
  - `pred n' is automatically converted to `n-1'.
nipkow@4361
  2472
    Users are strongly encouraged not to use `pred' any longer,
nipkow@4361
  2473
    because it will disappear altogether at some point.
nipkow@4361
  2474
  - Users are strongly encouraged to write "0 < n" rather than
nipkow@4361
  2475
    "n ~= 0". Theorems and proof tools have been modified towards this
nipkow@4361
  2476
    `standard'.
nipkow@4357
  2477
nipkow@4502
  2478
* HOL/Lists:
nipkow@4502
  2479
  the function "set_of_list" has been renamed "set" (and its theorems too);
nipkow@4502
  2480
  the function "nth" now takes its arguments in the reverse order and
nipkow@4502
  2481
  has acquired the infix notation "!" as in "xs!n".
paulson@3570
  2482
paulson@4154
  2483
* HOL/Set: UNIV is now a constant and is no longer translated to Compl{};
paulson@4154
  2484
paulson@4154
  2485
* HOL/Set: The operator (UN x.B x) now abbreviates (UN x:UNIV. B x) and its

  specialist theorems (like UN1_I) are gone.  Similarly for (INT x.B x);

  2488
* HOL/record: extensible records with schematic structural subtyping
wenzelm@4575
  2489
(single inheritance); EXPERIMENTAL version demonstrating the encoding,
wenzelm@4575
  2490
still lacks various theorems and concrete record syntax;

paulson@3715
  2493
*** HOLCF ***
wenzelm@3535
  2494
wenzelm@4125
  2495
* removed "axioms" and "generated by" sections;
wenzelm@4125
  2496
oheimb@4123
  2497
* replaced "ops" section by extended "consts" section, which is capable of
wenzelm@4125
  2498
  handling the continuous function space "->" directly;
wenzelm@4125
  2499
wenzelm@4125
  2500
* domain package:
wenzelm@4125
  2501
  . proves theorems immediately and stores them in the theory,
wenzelm@4125
  2502
  . creates hierachical name space,
wenzelm@4125
  2503
  . now uses normal mixfix annotations (instead of cinfix...),
wenzelm@4125
  2504
  . minor changes to some names and values (for consistency),
wenzelm@4125
  2505
  . e.g. cases -> casedist, dists_eq -> dist_eqs, [take_lemma] -> take_lemmas,
wenzelm@4125
  2506
  . separator between mutual domain defs: changed "," to "and",
wenzelm@4125
  2507
  . improved handling of sort constraints;  now they have to
wenzelm@4125
  2508
    appear on the left-hand side of the equations only;
oheimb@4123
  2509
oheimb@4123
  2510
* fixed LAM <x,y,zs>.b syntax;
wenzelm@3567
  2511
wenzelm@3744
  2512
* added extended adm_tac to simplifier in HOLCF -- can now discharge
wenzelm@3744
  2513
adm (%x. P (t x)), where P is chainfinite and t continuous;

paulson@3719
  2516
*** FOL and ZF ***
paulson@3719
  2517
wenzelm@5726
  2518
* FOL: there is a new splitter `split_asm_tac' that can be used e.g.
oheimb@4189
  2519
  with `addloop' of the simplifier to faciliate case splitting in premises.
oheimb@4189
  2520
wenzelm@3744
  2521
* qed_spec_mp, qed_goal_spec_mp, qed_goalw_spec_mp are available, as
wenzelm@3744
  2522
in HOL, they strip ALL and --> from proved theorems;

paulson@3002
  2529
*** General Changes ***
paulson@3002
  2530
paulson@3002
  2531
* new utilities to build / run / maintain Isabelle etc. (in parts
paulson@3002
  2532
still somewhat experimental); old Makefiles etc. still functional;
wenzelm@2971
  2533
wenzelm@3205
  2534
* new 'Isabelle System Manual';
wenzelm@3205
  2535
wenzelm@2825
  2536
* INSTALL text, together with ./configure and ./build scripts;
wenzelm@2773
  2537
wenzelm@3006
  2538
* reimplemented type inference for greater efficiency, better error
wenzelm@3006
  2539
messages and clean internal interface;
paulson@3002
  2540
paulson@3002
  2541
* prlim command for dealing with lots of subgoals (an easier way of
paulson@3002
  2542
setting goals_limit);
paulson@3002
  2543
wenzelm@3006
  2544
wenzelm@3006
  2545
*** Syntax ***
paulson@3002
  2546
wenzelm@3116
  2547
* supports alternative (named) syntax tables (parser and pretty
wenzelm@3116
  2548
printer); internal interface is provided by add_modesyntax(_i);
wenzelm@3116
  2549
paulson@3002
  2550
* Pure, FOL, ZF, HOL, HOLCF now support symbolic input and output; to
paulson@3002
  2551
be used in conjunction with the Isabelle symbol font; uses the
paulson@3002
  2552
"symbols" syntax table;
paulson@3002
  2553
wenzelm@2705
  2554
* added token_translation interface (may translate name tokens in
wenzelm@2756
  2555
arbitrary ways, dependent on their type (free, bound, tfree, ...) and
wenzelm@3116
  2556
the current print_mode); IMPORTANT: user print translation functions
wenzelm@3116
  2557
are responsible for marking newly introduced bounds
wenzelm@3116
  2558
(Syntax.mark_boundT);
wenzelm@2705
  2559
wenzelm@2730
  2560
* token translations for modes "xterm" and "xterm_color" that display
wenzelm@3006
  2561
names in bold, underline etc. or colors (which requires a color
wenzelm@3006
  2562
version of xterm);
wenzelm@2730
  2563
paulson@3002
  2564
* infixes may now be declared with names independent of their syntax;
paulson@3002
  2565
paulson@3002
  2566
* added typed_print_translation (like print_translation, but may
paulson@3002
  2567
access type of constant);
paulson@3002
  2568
wenzelm@3006

paulson@3002
  2570
*** Classical Reasoner ***
paulson@3002
  2571
paulson@3002
  2572
Blast_tac: a new tactic!  It is often more powerful than fast_tac, but has
paulson@3002
  2573
some limitations.  Blast_tac...
paulson@3002
  2574
  + ignores addss, addbefore, addafter; this restriction is intrinsic
paulson@3002
  2575
  + ignores elimination rules that don't have the correct format
wenzelm@5726
  2576
        (the conclusion MUST be a formula variable)
paulson@3002
  2577
  + ignores types, which can make HOL proofs fail
paulson@3002
  2578
  + rules must not require higher-order unification, e.g. apply_type in ZF
paulson@3002
  2579
    [message "Function Var's argument not a bound variable" relates to this]
paulson@3002
  2580
  + its proof strategy is more general but can actually be slower
paulson@3002
  2581
wenzelm@3107
  2582
* substitution with equality assumptions no longer permutes other
wenzelm@3107
  2583
assumptions;
paulson@3002
  2584
paulson@3002
  2585
* minor changes in semantics of addafter (now called addaltern); renamed
paulson@3002
  2586
setwrapper to setWrapper and compwrapper to compWrapper; added safe wrapper
wenzelm@3107
  2587
(and access functions for it);
paulson@3002
  2588
wenzelm@5726
  2589
* improved combination of classical reasoner and simplifier:
oheimb@3317
  2590
  + functions for handling clasimpsets
oheimb@3317
  2591
  + improvement of addss: now the simplifier is called _after_ the
oheimb@3317
  2592
    safe steps.
oheimb@3317
  2593
  + safe variant of addss called addSss: uses safe simplifications
wenzelm@5726
  2594
    _during_ the safe steps. It is more complete as it allows multiple
oheimb@3317
  2595
    instantiations of unknowns (e.g. with slow_tac).
wenzelm@3006
  2596
paulson@3002
  2597
*** Simplifier ***
paulson@3002
  2598
wenzelm@3006
  2599
* added interface for simplification procedures (functions that
wenzelm@3006
  2600
produce *proven* rewrite rules on the fly, depending on current
wenzelm@3006
  2601
redex);
wenzelm@3006
  2602
wenzelm@3006
  2603
* ordering on terms as parameter (used for ordered rewriting);
wenzelm@3006
  2604
wenzelm@3107
  2605
* new functions delcongs, deleqcongs, and Delcongs. richer rep_ss;
paulson@3002
  2606
paulson@3002
  2607
* the solver is now split into a safe and an unsafe part.
paulson@3002
  2608
This should be invisible for the normal user, except that the
paulson@3002
  2609
functions setsolver and addsolver have been renamed to setSolver and
wenzelm@3107
  2610
addSolver; added safe_asm_full_simp_tac;
paulson@3002
  2611
paulson@3002
  2612
paulson@3002
  2613
*** HOL ***
paulson@3002
  2614
nipkow@3042
  2615
* a generic induction tactic `induct_tac' which works for all datatypes and
wenzelm@3107
  2616
also for type `nat';
nipkow@3042
  2617
nipkow@3316
  2618
* a generic case distinction tactic `exhaust_tac' which works for all
nipkow@3316
  2619
datatypes and also for type `nat';
nipkow@3316
  2620
nipkow@3316
  2621
* each datatype comes with a function `size';
nipkow@3316
  2622
paulson@3002
  2623
* patterns in case expressions allow tuple patterns as arguments to
wenzelm@3107
  2624
constructors, for example `case x of [] => ... | (x,y,z)#ps => ...';
paulson@3002
  2625
paulson@3002
  2626
* primrec now also works with type nat;
paulson@3002
  2627
paulson@3338
  2628
* recdef: a new declaration form, allows general recursive functions to be
paulson@3338
  2629
defined in theory files.  See HOL/ex/Fib, HOL/ex/Primes, HOL/Subst/Unify.
paulson@3338
  2630
paulson@3002
  2631
* the constant for negation has been renamed from "not" to "Not" to
wenzelm@3107
  2632
harmonize with FOL, ZF, LK, etc.;
paulson@3002
  2633
wenzelm@3107
  2634
* HOL/ex/LFilter theory of a corecursive "filter" functional for
wenzelm@3107
  2635
infinite lists;
paulson@3002
  2636
wenzelm@3227
  2637
* HOL/Modelcheck demonstrates invocation of model checker oracle;
wenzelm@3227
  2638
paulson@3002
  2639
* HOL/ex/Ring.thy declares cring_simp, which solves equational
paulson@3002
  2640
problems in commutative rings, using axiomatic type classes for + and *;
paulson@3002
  2641
paulson@3002
  2642
* more examples in HOL/MiniML and HOL/Auth;
