* Class semiring_div requires superclass no_zero_divisors and proof of div_mult_mult1;
haftmann@30930
    13
theorems div_mult_mult1, div_mult_mult2, div_mult_mult1_if, div_mult_mult1 and
haftmann@30930
    14
div_mult_mult2 have been generalized to class semiring_div, subsuming former
haftmann@30930
    15
theorems zdiv_zmult_zmult1, zdiv_zmult_zmult1_if, zdiv_zmult_zmult1 and zdiv_zmult_zmult2.
haftmann@30930
    16
div_mult_mult1 is now [simp] by default.  INCOMPATIBILITY.

*** General ***
wenzelm@27599
    29
wenzelm@28504
    30
* Simplified main Isabelle executables, with less surprises on
wenzelm@28504
    31
case-insensitive file-systems (such as Mac OS).
wenzelm@28504
    32
wenzelm@28504
    33
  - The main Isabelle tool wrapper is now called "isabelle" instead of
wenzelm@28504
    34
    "isatool."
wenzelm@28504
    35
wenzelm@28504
    36
  - The former "isabelle" alias for "isabelle-process" has been
wenzelm@28504
    37
    removed (should rarely occur to regular users).
wenzelm@28504
    38
wenzelm@28915
    39
  - The former "isabelle-interface" and its alias "Isabelle" have been
wenzelm@28915
    40
    removed (interfaces are now regular Isabelle tools).
wenzelm@28504
    41
wenzelm@28504
    42
Within scripts and make files, the Isabelle environment variables
wenzelm@28504
    43
ISABELLE_TOOL and ISABELLE_PROCESS replace old ISATOOL and ISABELLE,
wenzelm@28504
    44
respectively.  (The latter are still available as legacy feature.)
wenzelm@28504
    45
wenzelm@28915
    46
The old isabelle-interface wrapper could react in confusing ways if
wenzelm@28915
    47
the interface was uninstalled or changed otherwise.  Individual
wenzelm@28915
    48
interface tool configuration is now more explicit, see also the
wenzelm@28915
    49
Isabelle system manual.  In particular, Proof General is now available
wenzelm@28915
    50
via "isabelle emacs".
wenzelm@28504
    51
wenzelm@28504
    52
INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt derivative scripts.  Users may need to
wenzelm@28504
    53
purge installed copies of Isabelle executables and re-run "isabelle
wenzelm@28504
    54
install -p ...", or use symlinks.
wenzelm@28504
    55
wenzelm@28914
    56
* The default for ISABELLE_HOME_USER is now ~/.isabelle instead of the
wenzelm@30845
    57
old ~/isabelle, which was slightly non-standard and apt to cause
wenzelm@30845
    58
surprises on case-insensitive file-systems (such as Mac OS).
wenzelm@28914
    59
wenzelm@28914
    60
INCOMPATIBILITY, need to move existing ~/isabelle/etc,
wenzelm@28914
    61
~/isabelle/heaps, ~/isabelle/browser_info to the new place.  Special
wenzelm@28914
    62
care is required when using older releases of Isabelle.  Note that
wenzelm@28914
    63
ISABELLE_HOME_USER can be changed in Isabelle/etc/settings of any
wenzelm@30845
    64
Isabelle distribution, in order to use the new ~/.isabelle uniformly.
wenzelm@28914
    65
wenzelm@29161
    66
* Proofs of fully specified statements are run in parallel on
wenzelm@30845
    67
multi-core systems.  A speedup factor of 2.5 to 3.2 can be expected on
wenzelm@30845
    68
a regular 4-core machine, if the initial heap space is made reasonably
wenzelm@30845
    69
large (cf. Poly/ML option -H).  (Requires Poly/ML 5.2.1 or later.)
wenzelm@30845
    70
wenzelm@30845
    71
* The main reference manuals ("isar-ref", "implementation", and
wenzelm@30845
    72
"system") have been updated and extended.  Formally checked references
wenzelm@30845
    73
as hyperlinks are now available uniformly.

    76
*** Pure ***
wenzelm@27599
    77
wenzelm@30845
    78
* Complete re-implementation of locales.  INCOMPATIBILITY in several
wenzelm@30845
    79
respects.  The most important changes are listed below.  See the
wenzelm@30845
    80
Tutorial on Locales ("locales" manual) for details.
ballarin@29253
    81
ballarin@29253
    82
- In locale expressions, instantiation replaces renaming.  Parameters
ballarin@29253
    83
must be declared in a for clause.  To aid compatibility with previous
ballarin@29253
    84
parameter inheritance, in locale declarations, parameters that are not
ballarin@29253
    85
'touched' (instantiation position "_" or omitted) are implicitly added
ballarin@29253
    86
with their syntax at the beginning of the for clause.
ballarin@29253
    87
ballarin@29253
    88
- Syntax from abbreviations and definitions in locales is available in
ballarin@29253
    89
locale expressions and context elements.  The latter is particularly
ballarin@29253
    90
useful in locale declarations.
ballarin@29253
    91
ballarin@29253
    92
- More flexible mechanisms to qualify names generated by locale
ballarin@29253
    93
expressions.  Qualifiers (prefixes) may be specified in locale
wenzelm@30728
    94
expressions, and can be marked as mandatory (syntax: "name!:") or
wenzelm@30728
    95
optional (syntax "name?:").  The default depends for plain "name:"
wenzelm@30728
    96
depends on the situation where a locale expression is used: in
wenzelm@30728
    97
commands 'locale' and 'sublocale' prefixes are optional, in
wenzelm@30845
    98
'interpretation' and 'interpret' prefixes are mandatory.  The old
wenzelm@30728
    99
implicit qualifiers derived from the parameter names of a locale are
wenzelm@30728
   100
no longer generated.
wenzelm@30106
   101
wenzelm@30845
   102
- Command "sublocale l < e" replaces "interpretation l < e".  The
wenzelm@30106
   103
instantiation clause in "interpretation" and "interpret" (square
wenzelm@30106
   104
brackets) is no longer available.  Use locale expressions.
ballarin@29253
   105
wenzelm@30845
   106
- When converting proof scripts, mandatory qualifiers in
wenzelm@30728
   107
'interpretation' and 'interpret' should be retained by default, even
wenzelm@30845
   108
if this is an INCOMPATIBILITY compared to former behavior.  In the
wenzelm@30845
   109
worst case, use the "name?:" form for non-mandatory ones.  Qualifiers
wenzelm@30845
   110
in locale expressions range over a single locale instance only.
wenzelm@30845
   111
wenzelm@30845
   112
- Dropped locale element "includes".  This is a major INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   113
In existing theorem specifications replace the includes element by the
wenzelm@30845
   114
respective context elements of the included locale, omitting those
wenzelm@30845
   115
that are already present in the theorem specification.  Multiple
wenzelm@30845
   116
assume elements of a locale should be replaced by a single one
wenzelm@30845
   117
involving the locale predicate.  In the proof body, declarations (most
wenzelm@30845
   118
notably theorems) may be regained by interpreting the respective
wenzelm@30845
   119
locales in the proof context as required (command "interpret").
wenzelm@30845
   120
wenzelm@30845
   121
If using "includes" in replacement of a target solely because the
wenzelm@30845
   122
parameter types in the theorem are not as general as in the target,
wenzelm@30845
   123
consider declaring a new locale with additional type constraints on
wenzelm@30845
   124
the parameters (context element "constrains").
wenzelm@30845
   125
wenzelm@30845
   126
- Discontinued "locale (open)".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   127
wenzelm@30845
   128
- Locale interpretation commands no longer attempt to simplify goal.
wenzelm@30845
   129
INCOMPATIBILITY: in rare situations the generated goal differs.  Use
wenzelm@30845
   130
methods intro_locales and unfold_locales to clarify.
wenzelm@30845
   131
wenzelm@30845
   132
- Locale interpretation commands no longer accept interpretation
wenzelm@30845
   133
attributes.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   134
wenzelm@30845
   135
* Class declaration: so-called "base sort" must not be given in import
wenzelm@30845
   136
list any longer, but is inferred from the specification.  Particularly
wenzelm@30845
   137
in HOL, write
wenzelm@30845
   138
wenzelm@30845
   139
    class foo = ...
wenzelm@30845
   140
wenzelm@30845
   141
instead of
wenzelm@30845
   142
wenzelm@30845
   143
    class foo = type + ...
wenzelm@30845
   144
wenzelm@30845
   145
* Class target: global versions of theorems stemming do not carry a
wenzelm@30845
   146
parameter prefix any longer.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   147
wenzelm@30845
   148
* Class 'instance' command no longer accepts attached definitions.
wenzelm@30845
   149
INCOMPATIBILITY, use proper 'instantiation' target instead.
wenzelm@30845
   150
wenzelm@30845
   151
* Recovered hiding of consts, which was accidentally broken in
wenzelm@30845
   152
Isabelle2007.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY, ``hide const c'' really
wenzelm@30845
   153
makes c inaccessible; consider using ``hide (open) const c'' instead.
wenzelm@30845
   154
wenzelm@30845
   155
* Slightly more coherent Pure syntax, with updated documentation in
wenzelm@30845
   156
isar-ref manual.  Removed locales meta_term_syntax and
wenzelm@30845
   157
meta_conjunction_syntax: TERM and &&& (formerly &&) are now permanent,
wenzelm@30845
   158
INCOMPATIBILITY in rare situations.  Note that &&& should not be used
wenzelm@30845
   159
directly in regular applications.
wenzelm@30845
   160
wenzelm@30845
   161
* There is a new syntactic category "float_const" for signed decimal
wenzelm@30845
   162
fractions (e.g. 123.45 or -123.45).
wenzelm@30845
   163
wenzelm@30845
   164
* Removed exotic 'token_translation' command.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use ML
wenzelm@30845
   165
interface with 'setup' command instead.
wenzelm@30845
   166
wenzelm@30845
   167
* Command 'local_setup' is similar to 'setup', but operates on a local
wenzelm@30845
   168
theory context.
haftmann@27104
   169
wenzelm@28114
   170
* The 'axiomatization' command now only works within a global theory
wenzelm@28114
   171
context.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@28114
   172
wenzelm@30845
   173
* Goal-directed proof now enforces strict proof irrelevance wrt. sort
wenzelm@30845
   174
hypotheses.  Sorts required in the course of reasoning need to be
wenzelm@30845
   175
covered by the constraints in the initial statement, completed by the
wenzelm@30845
   176
type instance information of the background theory.  Non-trivial sort
wenzelm@30845
   177
hypotheses, which rarely occur in practice, may be specified via
wenzelm@30845
   178
vacuous propositions of the form SORT_CONSTRAINT('a::c).  For example:
wenzelm@30845
   179
wenzelm@30845
   180
  lemma assumes "SORT_CONSTRAINT('a::empty)" shows False ...
wenzelm@30845
   181
wenzelm@30845
   182
The result contains an implicit sort hypotheses as before --
wenzelm@30845
   183
SORT_CONSTRAINT premises are eliminated as part of the canonical rule
wenzelm@30845
   184
normalization.
wenzelm@30845
   185
wenzelm@30845
   186
* Generalized Isar history, with support for linear undo, direct state
wenzelm@30845
   187
addressing etc.
wenzelm@30845
   188
wenzelm@30845
   189
* Changed defaults for unify configuration options:
wenzelm@30845
   190
wenzelm@30845
   191
  unify_trace_bound = 50 (formerly 25)
wenzelm@30845
   192
  unify_search_bound = 60 (formerly 30)
wenzelm@30845
   193
wenzelm@30845
   194
* Different bookkeeping for code equations (INCOMPATIBILITY):
wenzelm@30845
   195
wenzelm@30845
   196
  a) On theory merge, the last set of code equations for a particular
wenzelm@30845
   197
     constant is taken (in accordance with the policy applied by other
wenzelm@30845
   198
     parts of the code generator framework).
wenzelm@30845
   199
wenzelm@30845
   200
  b) Code equations stemming from explicit declarations (e.g. code
wenzelm@30845
   201
     attribute) gain priority over default code equations stemming
wenzelm@30845
   202
     from definition, primrec, fun etc.
wenzelm@30845
   203
wenzelm@30845
   204
* Keyword 'code_exception' now named 'code_abort'.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   205
wenzelm@30845
   206
* Unified theorem tables for both code code generators.  Thus [code
wenzelm@30845
   207
func] has disappeared and only [code] remains.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30577
   208
wenzelm@30577
   209
* Command 'find_consts' searches for constants based on type and name
wenzelm@30577
   210
patterns, e.g.
kleing@29883
   211
kleing@29883
   212
    find_consts "_ => bool"
kleing@29883
   213
wenzelm@30106
   214
By default, matching is against subtypes, but it may be restricted to
wenzelm@30728
   215
the whole type.  Searching by name is possible.  Multiple queries are
wenzelm@30106
   216
conjunctive and queries may be negated by prefixing them with a
wenzelm@30106
   217
hyphen:
kleing@29883
   218
kleing@29883
   219
    find_consts strict: "_ => bool" name: "Int" -"int => int"
kleing@29861
   220
wenzelm@30845
   221
* New 'find_theorems' criterion "solves" matches theorems that
wenzelm@30845
   222
directly solve the current goal (modulo higher-order unification).
wenzelm@30845
   223
wenzelm@30845
   224
* Auto solve feature for main theorem statements: whenever a new goal
wenzelm@30845
   225
is stated, "find_theorems solves" is called; any theorems that could
wenzelm@30845
   226
solve the lemma directly are listed as part of the goal state.
wenzelm@30845
   227
Cf. associated options in Proof General Isabelle settings menu,
wenzelm@30845
   228
enabled by default, with reasonable timeout for pathological cases of
wenzelm@30845
   229
higher-order unification.

*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@27381
   233
wenzelm@27381
   234
* Antiquotation @{lemma} now imitates a regular terminal proof,
wenzelm@27392
   235
demanding keyword 'by' and supporting the full method expression
wenzelm@27519
   236
syntax just like the Isar command 'by'.

*** HOL ***
haftmann@27104
   240
wenzelm@30845
   241
* Integrated main parts of former image HOL-Complex with HOL.  Entry
wenzelm@30845
   242
points Main and Complex_Main remain as before.
wenzelm@30845
   243
wenzelm@30845
   244
* Logic image HOL-Plain provides a minimal HOL with the most important
wenzelm@30845
   245
tools available (inductive, datatype, primrec, ...).  This facilitates
wenzelm@30845
   246
experimentation and tool development.  Note that user applications
wenzelm@30845
   247
(and library theories) should never refer to anything below theory
wenzelm@30845
   248
Main, as before.
wenzelm@30845
   249
wenzelm@30845
   250
* Logic image HOL-Main stops at theory Main, and thus facilitates
wenzelm@30845
   251
experimentation due to shorter build times.
wenzelm@30845
   252
wenzelm@30845
   253
* Logic image HOL-NSA contains theories of nonstandard analysis which
wenzelm@30845
   254
were previously part of former HOL-Complex.  Entry point Hyperreal
wenzelm@30845
   255
remains valid, but theories formerly using Complex_Main should now use
wenzelm@30845
   256
new entry point Hypercomplex.
wenzelm@30845
   257
wenzelm@30845
   258
* Generic ATP manager for Sledgehammer, based on ML threads instead of
wenzelm@30845
   259
Posix processes.  Avoids potentially expensive forking of the ML
wenzelm@30845
   260
process.  New thread-based implementation also works on non-Unix
wenzelm@30845
   261
platforms (Cygwin).  Provers are no longer hardwired, but defined
wenzelm@30845
   262
within the theory via plain ML wrapper functions.  Basic Sledgehammer
wenzelm@30845
   263
commands are covered in the isar-ref manual.
wenzelm@30845
   264
wenzelm@30845
   265
* Wrapper scripts for remote SystemOnTPTP service allows to use
wenzelm@30845
   266
sledgehammer without local ATP installation (Vampire etc.). Other
wenzelm@30845
   267
provers may be included via suitable ML wrappers, see also
wenzelm@30845
   268
src/HOL/ATP_Linkup.thy.
wenzelm@30845
   269
wenzelm@30845
   270
* ATP selection (E/Vampire/Spass) is now via Proof General's settings
wenzelm@30845
   271
menu.
wenzelm@30845
   272
wenzelm@30845
   273
* The metis method no longer fails because the theorem is too trivial
wenzelm@30845
   274
(contains the empty clause).

* Constants "undefined" and "default" replace "arbitrary".  Usually
wenzelm@30845
   283
"undefined" is the right choice to replace "arbitrary", though
wenzelm@30845

logically there is no difference.  INCOMPATIBILITY.

wenzelm@30845
   288
square brackets a particular named evaluation mechanisms may be

* Methods "case_tac" and "induct_tac" now refer to the very same rules
wenzelm@30845
   296
as the structured Isar versions "cases" and "induct", cf. the
wenzelm@30845
   297
corresponding "cases" and "induct" attributes.  Mutual induction rules
wenzelm@30845
   298
are now presented as a list of individual projections
wenzelm@30845
   299
(e.g. foo_bar.inducts for types foo and bar); the old format with
wenzelm@30845
   300
explicit HOL conjunction is no longer supported.  INCOMPATIBILITY, in
wenzelm@30845
   301
rare situations a different rule is selected --- notably nested tuple
wenzelm@30845
   302
elimination instead of former prod.exhaust: use explicit (case_tac t

rule: prod.exhaust) here.
wenzelm@30845
   304

wenzelm@30845
   306
wenzelm@30845

* Removed fact "case_split_thm", which duplicates "case_split".
wenzelm@30845

* New predicate "strict_mono" classifies strict functions on partial
wenzelm@30845
   313
orders.  With strict functions on linear orders, reasoning about
wenzelm@30845
   314
(in)equalities is facilitated by theorems "strict_mono_eq",
wenzelm@30845

"strict_mono_less_eq" and "strict_mono_less".

variable occurs at most once in let expression body.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   417

fast_arith_neq_limit is exceeded, instead of giving up entirely.
wenzelm@30845
   420
wenzelm@30845

   440
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   441
wenzelm@30845

wenzelm@27793
   443
INCOMPATIBILITY: Instantiation proofs for order, linorder
wenzelm@27793
   444

   445
preorder_class.*.
wenzelm@27793

   448
"diag" to "Id_on".
wenzelm@30845
   449

wenzelm@30845
   459
and "ring_simps" have been replaced by "algebra_simps" (which can be
wenzelm@30845
   460
extended with further lemmas!).  At the moment both still exist but
wenzelm@30845
   461
the former will disappear at some point.
wenzelm@30845
   462
wenzelm@30845
   463
* Theory Power: Lemma power_Suc is now declared as a simp rule in
wenzelm@30845
   464
class recpower.  Type-specific simp rules for various recpower types
wenzelm@30845
   465
have been removed.  INCOMPATIBILITY, rename old lemmas as follows:

* Theories Ring_and_Field and Divides: Definition of "op dvd" has been
wenzelm@27793
   477
moved to separate class dvd in Ring_and_Field; a couple of lemmas on
wenzelm@27793
   478
dvd has been generalized to class comm_semiring_1.  Likewise a bunch
wenzelm@27793

wenzelm@29161
   700
particularly convenient to organize independent functional

   744
qualification by packages and local theory targets, as well as proper

* The Isabelle "emacs" tool provides a specific interface to invoke
wenzelm@28248
   796
Proof General / Emacs, with more explicit failure if that is not
wenzelm@28248
   797
installed (the old isabelle-interface script silently falls back on
wenzelm@28248
   798
isabelle-process).  The PROOFGENERAL_HOME setting determines the
wenzelm@28248
   799
installation location of the Proof General distribution.

* Isabelle/lib/classes/Pure.jar provides basic support to integrate
wenzelm@27979
   802
the Isabelle process into a JVM/Scala application.  See
wenzelm@27979
   803
Isabelle/lib/jedit/plugin for a minimal example.  (The obsolete Java
wenzelm@27979
   804
process wrapper has been discontinued.)
wenzelm@27979

* Various status messages (with exact source position information) are
wenzelm@27979

emitted, if proper markup print mode is enabled.  This allows
wenzelm@27979

*** General ***
wenzelm@25522
   819
wenzelm@27061
   820
* The Isabelle/Isar Reference Manual (isar-ref) has been reorganized
wenzelm@27061
   821
and updated, with formally checked references as hyperlinks.
wenzelm@27061
   822
wenzelm@25994
   823
* Theory loader: use_thy (and similar operations) no longer set the
wenzelm@25994
   824
implicit ML context, which was occasionally hard to predict and in
wenzelm@25994
   825
conflict with concurrency.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use ML within Isar which
wenzelm@25994
   826
provides a proper context already.
wenzelm@25994
   827
wenzelm@26323
   828
* Theory loader: old-style ML proof scripts being *attached* to a thy
wenzelm@26323
   829
file are no longer supported.  INCOMPATIBILITY, regular 'uses' and
wenzelm@26323
   830
'use' within a theory file will do the job.
wenzelm@26323
   831
wenzelm@26650
   832
* Name space merge now observes canonical order, i.e. the second space
wenzelm@26650
   833
is inserted into the first one, while existing entries in the first
wenzelm@26659
   834
space take precedence.  INCOMPATIBILITY in rare situations, may try to
wenzelm@26650
   835
swap theory imports.
wenzelm@26650
   836
wenzelm@27067
   837
* Syntax: symbol \<chi> is now considered a letter.  Potential
wenzelm@27067
   838
INCOMPATIBILITY in identifier syntax etc.
wenzelm@27067
   839
wenzelm@27067
   840
* Outer syntax: string tokens no longer admit escaped white space,
wenzelm@27067
   841
which was an accidental (undocumented) feature.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use
wenzelm@27067
   842
white space without escapes.
wenzelm@27067
   843
wenzelm@27067
   844
* Outer syntax: string tokens may contain arbitrary character codes
wenzelm@27067
   845
specified via 3 decimal digits (as in SML).  E.g. "foo\095bar" for
wenzelm@27067
   846
"foo_bar".

berghofe@26681
   854
* Unused theorems can be found using the new command 'unused_thms'.
berghofe@26681
   855
There are three ways of invoking it:
berghofe@26681
   856
berghofe@26681
   857
(1) unused_thms
berghofe@26681
   858
     Only finds unused theorems in the current theory.
berghofe@26681
   859
berghofe@26681
   860
(2) unused_thms thy_1 ... thy_n -
berghofe@26681
   861
     Finds unused theorems in the current theory and all of its ancestors,
berghofe@26681
   862
     excluding the theories thy_1 ... thy_n and all of their ancestors.
berghofe@26681
   863
berghofe@26681
   864
(3) unused_thms thy_1 ... thy_n - thy'_1 ... thy'_m
berghofe@26681
   865
     Finds unused theorems in the theories thy'_1 ... thy'_m and all of
berghofe@26681
   866
     their ancestors, excluding the theories thy_1 ... thy_n and all of
berghofe@26681
   867
     their ancestors.
berghofe@26681
   868
wenzelm@26718
   869
In order to increase the readability of the list produced by
wenzelm@26718
   870
unused_thms, theorems that have been created by a particular instance
wenzelm@26874
   871
of a theory command such as 'inductive' or 'function' are considered
wenzelm@26874
   872
to belong to the same "group", meaning that if at least one theorem in
wenzelm@26718
   873
this group is used, the other theorems in the same group are no longer
wenzelm@26718
   874
reported as unused.  Moreover, if all theorems in the group are
wenzelm@26718
   875
unused, only one theorem in the group is displayed.
wenzelm@26718
   876
wenzelm@26718
   877
Note that proof objects have to be switched on in order for
wenzelm@26718
   878
unused_thms to work properly (i.e. !proofs must be >= 1, which is
wenzelm@26874
   879
usually the case when using Proof General with the default settings).
berghofe@26681
   880
wenzelm@26650
   881
* Authentic naming of facts disallows ad-hoc overwriting of previous
wenzelm@26650
   882
theorems within the same name space.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to remove
wenzelm@26650
   883
duplicate fact bindings, or even accidental fact duplications.  Note
wenzelm@26650
   884
that tools may maintain dynamically scoped facts systematically, using
wenzelm@26650
   885
PureThy.add_thms_dynamic.
wenzelm@26650
   886
wenzelm@26660
   887
* Command 'hide' now allows to hide from "fact" name space as well.
wenzelm@26660
   888
wenzelm@26496
   889
* Eliminated destructive theorem database, simpset, claset, and
wenzelm@26496
   890
clasimpset.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY, really need to observe linear
wenzelm@26496
   891
update of theories within ML code.
wenzelm@26479
   892
wenzelm@26955
   893
* Eliminated theory ProtoPure and CPure, leaving just one Pure theory.
wenzelm@26955
   894
INCOMPATIBILITY, object-logics depending on former Pure require
wenzelm@26955
   895
additional setup PureThy.old_appl_syntax_setup; object-logics
wenzelm@26955
   896
depending on former CPure need to refer to Pure.
wenzelm@26650
   897
wenzelm@26495
   898
* Commands 'use' and 'ML' are now purely functional, operating on
wenzelm@26479
   899
theory/local_theory.  Removed former 'ML_setup' (on theory), use 'ML'
wenzelm@26479
   900
instead.  Added 'ML_val' as mere diagnostic replacement for 'ML'.
wenzelm@26479
   901
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@26479
   902
wenzelm@26874
   903
* Command 'setup': discontinued implicit version with ML reference.
wenzelm@26434
   904
wenzelm@25970
   905
* Instantiation target allows for simultaneous specification of class
wenzelm@25970
   906
instance operations together with an instantiation proof.
wenzelm@25970
   907
Type-checking phase allows to refer to class operations uniformly.

* Indexing of literal facts: be more serious about including only
wenzelm@26201
   912
facts from the visible specification/proof context, but not the
wenzelm@26201
   913
background context (locale etc.).  Affects `prop` notation and method
wenzelm@26201
   914
"fact".  INCOMPATIBILITY: need to name facts explicitly in rare
wenzelm@26201
   915
situations.
wenzelm@26201
   916
wenzelm@26925
   917
* Method "cases", "induct", "coinduct": removed obsolete/undocumented
wenzelm@26925
   918
"(open)" option, which used to expose internal bound variables to the
wenzelm@26925
   919
proof text.
wenzelm@26925
   920
wenzelm@26925
   921
* Isar statements: removed obsolete case "rule_context".
wenzelm@26925
   922
INCOMPATIBILITY, better use explicit fixes/assumes.
wenzelm@26925
   923
wenzelm@26874
   924
* Locale proofs: default proof step now includes 'unfold_locales';
wenzelm@26874
   925
hence 'proof' without argument may be used to unfold locale
wenzelm@26874
   926
predicates.

* Simplified pdfsetup.sty: color/hyperref is used unconditionally for
wenzelm@26914
   932
both pdf and dvi (hyperlinks usually work in xdvi as well); removed
wenzelm@26914
   933
obsolete thumbpdf setup (contemporary PDF viewers do this on the
wenzelm@26914
   934
spot); renamed link color from "darkblue" to "linkcolor" (default
wenzelm@26920
   935
value unchanged, can be redefined via \definecolor); no longer sets

   936
"a4paper" option (unnecessary or even intrusive).

wenzelm@27008
   939
method (either a method name or a method name plus (optional) method
wenzelm@27008
   940
arguments in parentheses) and prints A just like @{prop A}.

* New primrec package.  Specification syntax conforms in style to
wenzelm@27067
   946
definition/function/....  No separate induction rule is provided.  The
wenzelm@27067
   947
"primrec" command distinguishes old-style and new-style specifications
wenzelm@27067
   948
by syntax.  The former primrec package is now named OldPrimrecPackage.
wenzelm@27067
   949
When adjusting theories, beware: constants stemming from new-style

   953
with multithreading.

wenzelm@27067
   955
* Metis: the maximum number of clauses that can be produced from a
wenzelm@27067
   956

wenzelm@27067
   957
exceed this number are ignored, with a warning printed.

* Sledgehammer no longer produces structured proofs by default. To
wenzelm@27067
   960
enable, declare [[sledgehammer_full = true]].  Attributes
wenzelm@27067
   961

* Method "induct_scheme" derives user-specified induction rules
wenzelm@27067
   965
from well-founded induction and completeness of patterns. This factors
wenzelm@27067
   966
out some operations that are done internally by the function package
wenzelm@27067
   967
and makes them available separately.  See

   970
* More flexible generation of measure functions for termination
wenzelm@27067
   971
proofs: Measure functions can be declared by proving a rule of the
wenzelm@27067
   972
form "is_measure f" and giving it the [measure_function] attribute.
wenzelm@27067
   973
The "is_measure" predicate is logically meaningless (always true), and
wenzelm@27067
   974
just guides the heuristic.  To find suitable measure functions, the
wenzelm@27067
   975
termination prover sets up the goal "is_measure ?f" of the appropriate
wenzelm@27067
   976
type and generates all solutions by prolog-style backwards proof using
wenzelm@27067
   977
the declared rules.
wenzelm@27067
   978
wenzelm@27067
   979
This setup also deals with rules like 
wenzelm@27067
   980
wenzelm@27067
   981
  "is_measure f ==> is_measure (list_size f)"
wenzelm@27067
   982
wenzelm@27067
   983
which accommodates nested datatypes that recurse through lists.
wenzelm@27067
   984
Similar rules are predeclared for products and option types.

operator BIT and the bit datatype with constructors B0 and B1 have
wenzelm@26180
  1096
disappeared.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use "Int.Bit0 x" and "Int.Bit1 y" in
wenzelm@26180
  1097
place of "x BIT bit.B0" and "y BIT bit.B1", respectively.  Theorems
wenzelm@26180

wenzelm@27067
  1181
wenzelm@26401

* Functor NamedThmsFun: data is available to the user as dynamic fact

wenzelm@26401

* Removed obsolete "use_legacy_bindings" function.
wenzelm@26188
  1186
wenzelm@25737
  1187
* The ``print mode'' is now a thread-local value derived from a global
wenzelm@25737
  1188
template (the former print_mode reference), thus access becomes
wenzelm@25737
  1189
non-critical.  The global print_mode reference is for session

  1190
management only; user-code should use print_mode_value,

print_mode_active, PrintMode.setmp etc.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@25737

wenzelm@25652

* JVM class isabelle.IsabelleProcess (located in Isabelle/lib/classes)
wenzelm@25651
  1215
provides general wrapper for managing an Isabelle process in a robust
wenzelm@25651
  1216
fashion, with ``cooked'' output from stdin/stderr.

based on Isabelle/JVM process wrapper (see Isabelle/lib/classes).
wenzelm@25855
  1220
wenzelm@27067

wenzelm@27067
  1222
way of changing the user's settings is via
wenzelm@27067
  1223

wenzelm@17754
  1241
*** General ***
wenzelm@17754
  1242
wenzelm@22826
  1243
* More uniform information about legacy features, notably a
wenzelm@22826
  1244
warning/error of "Legacy feature: ...", depending on the state of the
wenzelm@23367
  1245
tolerate_legacy_features flag (default true). FUTURE INCOMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@23367
  1246
legacy features will disappear eventually.
wenzelm@22826
  1247
wenzelm@17918
  1248
* Theory syntax: the header format ``theory A = B + C:'' has been
wenzelm@17918
  1249
discontinued in favour of ``theory A imports B C begin''.  Use isatool
wenzelm@17918
  1250
fixheaders to convert existing theory files.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17918
  1251
wenzelm@17918
  1252
* Theory syntax: the old non-Isar theory file format has been
wenzelm@17918
  1253
discontinued altogether.  Note that ML proof scripts may still be used
wenzelm@17918
  1254
with Isar theories; migration is usually quite simple with the ML
wenzelm@17918
  1255
function use_legacy_bindings.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17918
  1256
wenzelm@22871
  1257
* Theory syntax: some popular names (e.g. 'class', 'declaration',
wenzelm@22871
  1258
'fun', 'help', 'if') are now keywords.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use double
wenzelm@22871
  1259
quotes.
wenzelm@19814
  1260
wenzelm@23888
  1261
* Theory loader: be more serious about observing the static theory
wenzelm@23888
  1262
header specifications (including optional directories), but not the
wenzelm@24172
  1263
accidental file locations of previously successful loads.  The strict
wenzelm@24172
  1264
update policy of former update_thy is now already performed by
wenzelm@24172
  1265
use_thy, so the former has been removed; use_thys updates several
wenzelm@24172
  1266
theories simultaneously, just as 'imports' within a theory header
wenzelm@24172
  1267
specification, but without merging the results.  Potential
wenzelm@24172
  1268
INCOMPATIBILITY: may need to refine theory headers and commands
wenzelm@24172
  1269
ROOT.ML which depend on load order.
wenzelm@23888
  1270
wenzelm@23888
  1271
* Theory loader: optional support for content-based file
wenzelm@23888
  1272
identification, instead of the traditional scheme of full physical
wenzelm@23889
  1273
path plus date stamp; configured by the ISABELLE_FILE_IDENT setting
wenzelm@23888
  1274
(cf. the system manual).  The new scheme allows to work with
wenzelm@23888
  1275
non-finished theories in persistent session images, such that source
wenzelm@23888
  1276
files may be moved later on without requiring reloads.
wenzelm@23888
  1277
wenzelm@24187
  1278
* Theory loader: old-style ML proof scripts being *attached* to a thy
wenzelm@24187
  1279
file (with the same base name as the theory) are considered a legacy
wenzelm@24800
  1280
feature, which will disappear eventually. Even now, the theory loader
wenzelm@24800
  1281
no longer maintains dependencies on such files.
wenzelm@24800
  1282
wenzelm@24800
  1283
* Syntax: the scope for resolving ambiguities via type-inference is
wenzelm@24800
  1284
now limited to individual terms, instead of whole simultaneous
wenzelm@24234
  1285
specifications as before. This greatly reduces the complexity of the
wenzelm@24234
  1286
syntax module and improves flexibility by separating parsing and
wenzelm@24234
  1287
type-checking. INCOMPATIBILITY: additional type-constraints (explicit
wenzelm@24234
  1288
'fixes' etc.) are required in rare situations.
wenzelm@24234
  1289
wenzelm@25034
  1290
* Syntax: constants introduced by new-style packages ('definition',
wenzelm@25034
  1291
'abbreviation' etc.) are passed through the syntax module in
wenzelm@25034
  1292
``authentic mode''. This means that associated mixfix annotations
wenzelm@25034
  1293
really stick to such constants, independently of potential name space
wenzelm@25034
  1294
ambiguities introduced later on. INCOMPATIBILITY: constants in parse
wenzelm@25034
  1295
trees are represented slightly differently, may need to adapt syntax
wenzelm@25034
  1296
translations accordingly. Use CONST marker in 'translations' and
wenzelm@25034
  1297
@{const_syntax} antiquotation in 'parse_translation' etc.
wenzelm@25034
  1298
wenzelm@17981
  1299
* Legacy goal package: reduced interface to the bare minimum required
wenzelm@17981
  1300
to keep existing proof scripts running.  Most other user-level
wenzelm@17981
  1301
functions are now part of the OldGoals structure, which is *not* open
wenzelm@17981
  1302
by default (consider isatool expandshort before open OldGoals).
wenzelm@17981
  1303
Removed top_sg, prin, printyp, pprint_term/typ altogether, because
wenzelm@17981
  1304
these tend to cause confusion about the actual goal (!) context being
wenzelm@17981
  1305
used here, which is not necessarily the same as the_context().
wenzelm@17918
  1306
wenzelm@23379
  1307
* Command 'find_theorems': supports "*" wild-card in "name:"
wenzelm@23379
  1308
criterion; "with_dups" option.  Certain ProofGeneral versions might
wenzelm@23379
  1309
support a specific search form (see ProofGeneral/CHANGES).
webertj@22965
  1310
wenzelm@20370
  1311
* The ``prems limit'' option (cf. ProofContext.prems_limit) is now -1
wenzelm@20370
  1312
by default, which means that "prems" (and also "fixed variables") are
wenzelm@20370
  1313
suppressed from proof state output.  Note that the ProofGeneral
wenzelm@20370
  1314
settings mechanism allows to change and save options persistently, but
wenzelm@20370
  1315
older versions of Isabelle will fail to start up if a negative prems

limit is imposed.
wenzelm@20370
  1317
wenzelm@21308
  1318
* Local theory targets may be specified by non-nested blocks of
wenzelm@21308
  1319
``context/locale/class ... begin'' followed by ``end''.  The body may
wenzelm@21308
  1320
contain definitions, theorems etc., including any derived mechanism
wenzelm@21308
  1321
that has been implemented on top of these primitives.  This concept
wenzelm@21308
  1322
generalizes the existing ``theorem (in ...)'' towards more versatility
wenzelm@21308
  1323
and scalability.
wenzelm@21308
  1324
wenzelm@21960

* Proof General interface: proper undo of final 'end' command;

*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@17865
  1330
wenzelm@21717
  1331
* Added antiquotation @{theory name} which prints the given name,
wenzelm@21717
  1332
after checking that it refers to a valid ancestor theory in the
wenzelm@21717
  1333
current context.
haftmann@21339
  1334
wenzelm@17869
  1335
* Added antiquotations @{ML_type text} and @{ML_struct text} which
wenzelm@17869
  1336
check the given source text as ML type/structure, printing verbatim.
wenzelm@17865
  1337
wenzelm@21717
  1338
* Added antiquotation @{abbrev "c args"} which prints the abbreviation
wenzelm@21717
  1339
"c args == rhs" given in the current context.  (Any number of
wenzelm@21735
  1340
arguments may be given on the LHS.)

* The 'class' package offers a combination of axclass and locale to
wenzelm@25129
  1346
achieve Haskell-like type classes in Isabelle.  Definitions and
wenzelm@25129
  1347
theorems within a class context produce both relative results (with
wenzelm@25129
  1348
implicit parameters according to the locale context), and polymorphic
wenzelm@25129
  1349
constants with qualified polymorphism (according to the class
wenzelm@25129
  1350
context).  Within the body context of a 'class' target, a separate
wenzelm@25129
  1351
syntax layer ("user space type system") takes care of converting
wenzelm@25129
  1352
between global polymorphic consts and internal locale representation.

* Generic code generator framework allows to generate executable
wenzelm@24800
  1357
code for ML and Haskell (including Isabelle classes).  A short usage
wenzelm@24800
  1358
sketch:
haftmann@20188
  1359
haftmann@20188
  1360
    internal compilation:
haftmann@25199
  1361
        export_code <list of constants (term syntax)> in SML
haftmann@20453
  1362
    writing SML code to a file:

Theorem attributs for selecting and transforming function equations theorems:
haftmann@20453
  1375
haftmann@22845
  1376
    [code fun]:        select a theorem as function equation for a specific constant
haftmann@22845
  1377
    [code fun del]:    deselect a theorem as function equation for a specific constant
haftmann@22845
  1378
    [code inline]:     select an equation theorem for unfolding (inlining) in place
haftmann@22845
  1379
    [code inline del]: deselect an equation theorem for unfolding (inlining) in place
haftmann@20453

  1381
User-defined serializations (target in {SML, OCaml, Haskell}):
haftmann@20453
  1382
haftmann@20453
  1383
    code_const <and-list of constants (term syntax)>
haftmann@20453
  1384
      {(target) <and-list of const target syntax>}+
haftmann@20453
  1385
haftmann@20453
  1386
    code_type <and-list of type constructors>
haftmann@20453
  1387
      {(target) <and-list of type target syntax>}+
haftmann@20453
  1388
haftmann@20453
  1389
    code_instance <and-list of instances>
haftmann@20453
  1390
      {(target)}+
haftmann@20453
  1391
        where instance ::= <type constructor> :: <class>
haftmann@20453

haftmann@20453
  1393
    code_class <and_list of classes>

haftmann@20453
  1395
        where class target syntax ::= <class name> {where {<classop> == <target syntax>}+}?
haftmann@20453
  1396
haftmann@25199
  1397
code_instance and code_class only are effective to target Haskell.
haftmann@22735

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

src/HOL/ex/Codegenerator_Pretty.thy.  A separate tutorial on code
wenzelm@24800

haftmann@20188

wenzelm@25129
  1404
* Code generator: consts in 'consts_code' Isar commands are now
wenzelm@25129
  1405
referred to by usual term syntax (including optional type
wenzelm@25129
  1406
annotations).
wenzelm@25129
  1407
wenzelm@19254
  1408
* Command 'no_translations' removes translation rules from theory
wenzelm@19254
  1409
syntax.
wenzelm@19254
  1410
wenzelm@19625
  1411
* Overloaded definitions are now actually checked for acyclic
wenzelm@19714
  1412
dependencies.  The overloading scheme is slightly more general than
wenzelm@19714
  1413
that of Haskell98, although Isabelle does not demand an exact
wenzelm@19714
  1414
correspondence to type class and instance declarations.
wenzelm@19714
  1415
INCOMPATIBILITY, use ``defs (unchecked overloaded)'' to admit more
wenzelm@19714
  1416
exotic versions of overloading -- at the discretion of the user!
wenzelm@19711
  1417
wenzelm@19711
  1418
Polymorphic constants are represented via type arguments, i.e. the
wenzelm@19711
  1419
instantiation that matches an instance against the most general
wenzelm@19711
  1420
declaration given in the signature.  For example, with the declaration
wenzelm@19711
  1421
c :: 'a => 'a => 'a, an instance c :: nat => nat => nat is represented
wenzelm@19711
  1422
as c(nat).  Overloading is essentially simultaneous structural
wenzelm@19711
  1423
recursion over such type arguments.  Incomplete specification patterns
wenzelm@19714
  1424
impose global constraints on all occurrences, e.g. c('a * 'a) on the
wenzelm@19715
  1425
LHS means that more general c('a * 'b) will be disallowed on any RHS.
wenzelm@19714
  1426
Command 'print_theory' outputs the normalized system of recursive
wenzelm@19714
  1427
equations, see section "definitions".
wenzelm@19625
  1428
wenzelm@24086
  1429
* Configuration options are maintained within the theory or proof
wenzelm@24086
  1430
context (with name and type bool/int/string), providing a very simple
wenzelm@24086
  1431
interface to a poor-man's version of general context data.  Tools may
wenzelm@24110
  1432
declare options in ML (e.g. using Attrib.config_int) and then refer to
wenzelm@24110
  1433
these values using Config.get etc.  Users may change options via an
wenzelm@24110
  1434
associated attribute of the same name.  This form of context
wenzelm@24110
  1435
declaration works particularly well with commands 'declare' or
wenzelm@24110
  1436
'using', for example ``declare [[foo = 42]]''.  Thus it has become
wenzelm@24110
  1437
very easy to avoid global references, which would not observe Isar
wenzelm@24110
  1438
toplevel undo/redo and fail to work with multithreading.
wenzelm@24086
  1439
wenzelm@24172
  1440
Various global ML references of Pure and HOL have been turned into
wenzelm@24172
  1441
configuration options:
wenzelm@24172
  1442
wenzelm@24172

  Unify.search_bound		unify_search_bound

  fast_arith_split_limit	fast_arith_split_limit
wenzelm@24172
  1452
wenzelm@24086
  1453
* Named collections of theorems may be easily installed as context
wenzelm@24800
  1454
data using the functor NamedThmsFun (see also
wenzelm@24086
  1455
src/Pure/Tools/named_thms.ML).  The user may add or delete facts via
wenzelm@24110
  1456
attributes; there is also a toplevel print command.  This facility is
wenzelm@24110
  1457
just a common case of general context data, which is the preferred way
wenzelm@24110
  1458
for anything more complex than just a list of facts in canonical
wenzelm@24110
  1459
order.
wenzelm@24086
  1460
wenzelm@24032
  1461
* Isar: command 'declaration' augments a local theory by generic
wenzelm@24032
  1462
declaration functions written in ML.  This enables arbitrary content
wenzelm@24032
  1463
being added to the context, depending on a morphism that tells the
wenzelm@24032
  1464
difference of the original declaration context wrt. the application
wenzelm@24032
  1465
context encountered later on.
wenzelm@24032
  1466
wenzelm@24032
  1467
* Isar: proper interfaces for simplification procedures.  Command
wenzelm@24032
  1468
'simproc_setup' declares named simprocs (with match patterns, and body
wenzelm@24032
  1469
text in ML).  Attribute "simproc" adds/deletes simprocs in the current
wenzelm@24032
  1470
context.  ML antiquotation @{simproc name} retrieves named simprocs.
wenzelm@24032
  1471
wenzelm@24032
  1472
* Isar: an extra pair of brackets around attribute declarations
wenzelm@24032
  1473
abbreviates a theorem reference involving an internal dummy fact,
wenzelm@24032
  1474
which will be ignored later --- only the effect of the attribute on
wenzelm@24032
  1475
the background context will persist.  This form of in-place
wenzelm@24032
  1476
declarations is particularly useful with commands like 'declare' and
wenzelm@24032
  1477
'using', for example ``have A using [[simproc a]] by simp''.
wenzelm@24032
  1478
wenzelm@23369
  1479
* Isar: method "assumption" (and implicit closing of subproofs) now
wenzelm@23369
  1480
takes simple non-atomic goal assumptions into account: after applying
wenzelm@23369
  1481
an assumption as a rule the resulting subgoals are solved by atomic
wenzelm@23369
  1482
assumption steps.  This is particularly useful to finish 'obtain'
wenzelm@23369
  1483
goals, such as "!!x. (!!x. P x ==> thesis) ==> P x ==> thesis",
wenzelm@23369
  1484
without referring to the original premise "!!x. P x ==> thesis" in the
wenzelm@23369
  1485
Isar proof context.  POTENTIAL INCOMPATIBILITY: method "assumption" is
wenzelm@23369
  1486
more permissive.
wenzelm@23369
  1487
wenzelm@23369
  1488
* Isar: implicit use of prems from the Isar proof context is
wenzelm@23369
  1489
considered a legacy feature.  Common applications like ``have A .''
wenzelm@23369
  1490
may be replaced by ``have A by fact'' or ``note `A`''.  In general,
wenzelm@23369
  1491
referencing facts explicitly here improves readability and
wenzelm@23369
  1492
maintainability of proof texts.
wenzelm@23369
  1493
wenzelm@17865
  1494
* Isar: improper proof element 'guess' is like 'obtain', but derives
wenzelm@17865
  1495
the obtained context from the course of reasoning!  For example:
wenzelm@17865
  1496
wenzelm@17865
  1497
  assume "EX x y. A x & B y"   -- "any previous fact"
wenzelm@17865
  1498
  then guess x and y by clarify
wenzelm@17865
  1499
wenzelm@17865
  1500
This technique is potentially adventurous, depending on the facts and
wenzelm@17865
  1501
proof tools being involved here.
wenzelm@17865
  1502
wenzelm@18020
  1503
* Isar: known facts from the proof context may be specified as literal
wenzelm@18020
  1504
propositions, using ASCII back-quote syntax.  This works wherever
wenzelm@18020
  1505
named facts used to be allowed so far, in proof commands, proof
wenzelm@18020
  1506
methods, attributes etc.  Literal facts are retrieved from the context
wenzelm@18020
  1507
according to unification of type and term parameters.  For example,
wenzelm@18020
  1508
provided that "A" and "A ==> B" and "!!x. P x ==> Q x" are known
wenzelm@18020
  1509
theorems in the current context, then these are valid literal facts:
wenzelm@18020
  1510
`A` and `A ==> B` and `!!x. P x ==> Q x" as well as `P a ==> Q a` etc.
wenzelm@18020
  1511
wenzelm@18020
  1512
There is also a proof method "fact" which does the same composition
wenzelm@18044
  1513
for explicit goal states, e.g. the following proof texts coincide with
wenzelm@18044
  1514
certain special cases of literal facts:
wenzelm@18020
  1515
wenzelm@18020
  1516
  have "A" by fact                 ==  note `A`
wenzelm@18020
  1517
  have "A ==> B" by fact           ==  note `A ==> B`
wenzelm@18020
  1518
  have "!!x. P x ==> Q x" by fact  ==  note `!!x. P x ==> Q x`
wenzelm@18020
  1519
  have "P a ==> Q a" by fact       ==  note `P a ==> Q a`
wenzelm@18020
  1520
wenzelm@20118
  1521
* Isar: ":" (colon) is no longer a symbolic identifier character in
wenzelm@20118
  1522
outer syntax.  Thus symbolic identifiers may be used without
wenzelm@20118
  1523
additional white space in declarations like this: ``assume *: A''.
wenzelm@20118
  1524
wenzelm@20013
  1525
* Isar: 'print_facts' prints all local facts of the current context,
wenzelm@20013
  1526
both named and unnamed ones.
wenzelm@20013
  1527
wenzelm@18308
  1528
* Isar: 'def' now admits simultaneous definitions, e.g.:
wenzelm@18308
  1529
wenzelm@18308
  1530
  def x == "t" and y == "u"
wenzelm@18308
  1531
wenzelm@18540
  1532
* Isar: added command 'unfolding', which is structurally similar to
wenzelm@18540
  1533
'using', but affects both the goal state and facts by unfolding given
wenzelm@18815
  1534
rewrite rules.  Thus many occurrences of the 'unfold' method or
wenzelm@18540
  1535
'unfolded' attribute may be replaced by first-class proof text.
wenzelm@18540
  1536
wenzelm@18815
  1537
* Isar: methods 'unfold' / 'fold', attributes 'unfolded' / 'folded',
wenzelm@18815
  1538
and command 'unfolding' now all support object-level equalities
wenzelm@18815
  1539
(potentially conditional).  The underlying notion of rewrite rule is
wenzelm@18815
  1540
analogous to the 'rule_format' attribute, but *not* that of the
wenzelm@18815
  1541
Simplifier (which is usually more generous).
wenzelm@18815
  1542
kleing@24238
  1543
* Isar: the new attribute [rotated n] (default n = 1) rotates the
kleing@24238
  1544
premises of a theorem by n. Useful in conjunction with drule.
kleing@24238
  1545
wenzelm@19220
  1546
* Isar: the goal restriction operator [N] (default N = 1) evaluates a
wenzelm@19220
  1547
method expression within a sandbox consisting of the first N
wenzelm@19240
  1548
sub-goals, which need to exist.  For example, ``simp_all [3]''
wenzelm@19240
  1549
simplifies the first three sub-goals, while (rule foo, simp_all)[]
wenzelm@19240
  1550
simplifies all new goals that emerge from applying rule foo to the
wenzelm@19240
  1551
originally first one.
wenzelm@19220
  1552
wenzelm@19814
  1553
* Isar: schematic goals are no longer restricted to higher-order
wenzelm@19814
  1554
patterns; e.g. ``lemma "?P(?x)" by (rule TrueI)'' now works as
wenzelm@19814
  1555
expected.
wenzelm@19814
  1556
wenzelm@18901
  1557
* Isar: the conclusion of a long theorem statement is now either
wenzelm@18901
  1558
'shows' (a simultaneous conjunction, as before), or 'obtains'
wenzelm@18901
  1559
(essentially a disjunction of cases with local parameters and
wenzelm@18901
  1560
assumptions).  The latter allows to express general elimination rules
wenzelm@18910
  1561
adequately; in this notation common elimination rules look like this:
wenzelm@18901
  1562
wenzelm@18901
  1563
  lemma exE:    -- "EX x. P x ==> (!!x. P x ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1564
    assumes "EX x. P x"
wenzelm@18901
  1565
    obtains x where "P x"
wenzelm@18901
  1566
wenzelm@18901
  1567
  lemma conjE:  -- "A & B ==> (A ==> B ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1568
    assumes "A & B"
wenzelm@18901
  1569
    obtains A and B
wenzelm@18901
  1570
wenzelm@18901
  1571
  lemma disjE:  -- "A | B ==> (A ==> thesis) ==> (B ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1572
    assumes "A | B"
wenzelm@18901
  1573
    obtains
wenzelm@18901
  1574
      A
wenzelm@18901
  1575
    | B
wenzelm@18901
  1576
wenzelm@18910
  1577
The subsequent classical rules even refer to the formal "thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1578
explicitly:
wenzelm@18901
  1579
wenzelm@18901
  1580
  lemma classical:     -- "(~ thesis ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1581
    obtains "~ thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1582
wenzelm@18910
  1583
  lemma Peirce's_Law:  -- "((thesis ==> something) ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18910
  1584
    obtains "thesis ==> something"
wenzelm@18901
  1585
wenzelm@18901
  1586
The actual proof of an 'obtains' statement is analogous to that of the
wenzelm@18910
  1587
Isar proof element 'obtain', only that there may be several cases.
wenzelm@18910
  1588
Optional case names may be specified in parentheses; these will be
wenzelm@18910
  1589
available both in the present proof and as annotations in the
wenzelm@18910
  1590
resulting rule, for later use with the 'cases' method (cf. attribute
wenzelm@18910
  1591
case_names).
wenzelm@18901
  1592
wenzelm@21447
  1593
* Isar: the assumptions of a long theorem statement are available as
wenzelm@21447
  1594
"assms" fact in the proof context.  This is more appropriate than the
wenzelm@21447
  1595
(historical) "prems", which refers to all assumptions of the current
wenzelm@21447
  1596
context, including those from the target locale, proof body etc.
wenzelm@21447
  1597
wenzelm@19263
  1598
* Isar: 'print_statement' prints theorems from the current theory or
wenzelm@19263
  1599
proof context in long statement form, according to the syntax of a
wenzelm@19263
  1600
top-level lemma.
wenzelm@19263
  1601
wenzelm@18901
  1602
* Isar: 'obtain' takes an optional case name for the local context
wenzelm@18901
  1603
introduction rule (default "that").
wenzelm@18901
  1604
wenzelm@19587
  1605
* Isar: removed obsolete 'concl is' patterns.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use
wenzelm@19587
  1606
explicit (is "_ ==> ?foo") in the rare cases where this still happens
wenzelm@19587
  1607
to occur.
wenzelm@19587
  1608
wenzelm@19682
  1609
* Pure: syntax "CONST name" produces a fully internalized constant
wenzelm@19682
  1610
according to the current context.  This is particularly useful for
wenzelm@19682
  1611
syntax translations that should refer to internal constant
wenzelm@19682
  1612
representations independently of name spaces.
wenzelm@19682
  1613
wenzelm@21537
  1614
* Pure: syntax constant for foo (binder "FOO ") is called "foo_binder"
wenzelm@21537
  1615
instead of "FOO ". This allows multiple binder declarations to coexist
wenzelm@21537
  1616
in the same context.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@21537
  1617
wenzelm@21209
  1618
* Isar/locales: 'notation' provides a robust interface to the 'syntax'
wenzelm@21209
  1619
primitive that also works in a locale context (both for constants and
wenzelm@24950
  1620
fixed variables). Type declaration and internal syntactic representation
wenzelm@24950
  1621
of given constants retrieved from the context. Likewise, the
wenzelm@24950
  1622
'no_notation' command allows to remove given syntax annotations from the
wenzelm@24950
  1623
current context.
wenzelm@19682
  1624
wenzelm@19665
  1625
* Isar/locales: new derived specification elements 'axiomatization',
wenzelm@19665
  1626
'definition', 'abbreviation', which support type-inference, admit
wenzelm@19083
  1627
object-level specifications (equality, equivalence).  See also the
wenzelm@19083
  1628
isar-ref manual.  Examples:
wenzelm@19081
  1629
wenzelm@19665
  1630
  axiomatization
wenzelm@21595
  1631
    eq  (infix "===" 50) where
wenzelm@21595
  1632
    eq_refl: "x === x" and eq_subst: "x === y ==> P x ==> P y"
wenzelm@21595
  1633
wenzelm@21595
  1634
  definition "f x y = x + y + 1"
wenzelm@21595
  1635
  definition g where "g x = f x x"
wenzelm@19081
  1636
wenzelm@19363
  1637
  abbreviation
wenzelm@21595
  1638
    neq  (infix "=!=" 50) where
wenzelm@19363
  1639
    "x =!= y == ~ (x === y)"
wenzelm@19081
  1640
wenzelm@19083
  1641
These specifications may be also used in a locale context.  Then the
wenzelm@19083
  1642
constants being introduced depend on certain fixed parameters, and the
wenzelm@19083
  1643
constant name is qualified by the locale base name.  An internal
wenzelm@19083
  1644
abbreviation takes care for convenient input and output, making the
wenzelm@19088
  1645
parameters implicit and using the original short name.  See also
wenzelm@25177
  1646
src/HOL/ex/Abstract_NAT.thy for an example of deriving polymorphic
wenzelm@19083
  1647
entities from a monomorphic theory.
wenzelm@19083
  1648
wenzelm@19083
  1649
Presently, abbreviations are only available 'in' a target locale, but
wenzelm@19363
  1650
not inherited by general import expressions.  Also note that
wenzelm@19363
  1651
'abbreviation' may be used as a type-safe replacement for 'syntax' +
wenzelm@24735
  1652
'translations' in common applications.  The "no_abbrevs" print mode
wenzelm@24735
  1653
prevents folding of abbreviations in term output.
wenzelm@19084
  1654
wenzelm@19682
  1655
Concrete syntax is attached to specified constants in internal form,
wenzelm@19682
  1656
independently of name spaces.  The parse tree representation is
wenzelm@21209
  1657
slightly different -- use 'notation' instead of raw 'syntax', and
wenzelm@19682
  1658
'translations' with explicit "CONST" markup to accommodate this.
wenzelm@19665
  1659
wenzelm@24800
  1660
* Pure/Isar: unified syntax for new-style specification mechanisms
wenzelm@24800
  1661
(e.g.  'definition', 'abbreviation', or 'inductive' in HOL) admits
wenzelm@24800
  1662
full type inference and dummy patterns ("_").  For example:
wenzelm@24735
  1663
wenzelm@24735
  1664
  definition "K x _ = x"
wenzelm@24735
  1665
wenzelm@24738
  1666
  inductive conj for A B
wenzelm@24738
  1667
  where "A ==> B ==> conj A B"
wenzelm@24738
  1668
wenzelm@21735
  1669
* Pure: command 'print_abbrevs' prints all constant abbreviations of
wenzelm@21735
  1670
the current context.  Print mode "no_abbrevs" prevents inversion of
wenzelm@21735
  1671
abbreviations on output.
wenzelm@21735
  1672
wenzelm@24800
  1673
* Isar/locales: improved parameter handling: use of locales "var" and
wenzelm@24800
  1674
"struct" no longer necessary; - parameter renamings are no longer
wenzelm@24800
  1675
required to be injective.  For example, this allows to define
wenzelm@24800
  1676
endomorphisms as locale endom = homom mult mult h.
ballarin@19783
  1677
ballarin@19931
  1678
* Isar/locales: changed the way locales with predicates are defined.
ballarin@19931
  1679
Instead of accumulating the specification, the imported expression is
wenzelm@22126
  1680
now an interpretation.  INCOMPATIBILITY: different normal form of
wenzelm@22126
  1681
locale expressions.  In particular, in interpretations of locales with
wenzelm@22126
  1682
predicates, goals repesenting already interpreted fragments are not
wenzelm@22126
  1683
removed automatically.  Use methods `intro_locales' and
wenzelm@22126
  1684
`unfold_locales'; see below.
wenzelm@22126
  1685
wenzelm@22126
  1686
* Isar/locales: new methods `intro_locales' and `unfold_locales'
wenzelm@22126
  1687
provide backward reasoning on locales predicates.  The methods are
wenzelm@22126
  1688
aware of interpretations and discharge corresponding goals.
wenzelm@22126
  1689
`intro_locales' is less aggressive then `unfold_locales' and does not
wenzelm@22126
  1690
unfold predicates to assumptions.
ballarin@19931
  1691
ballarin@19931
  1692
* Isar/locales: the order in which locale fragments are accumulated
wenzelm@22126
  1693
has changed.  This enables to override declarations from fragments due
wenzelm@22126
  1694
to interpretations -- for example, unwanted simp rules.
ballarin@19931
  1695
ballarin@23920
  1696
* Isar/locales: interpretation in theories and proof contexts has been
ballarin@23920
  1697
extended.  One may now specify (and prove) equations, which are
ballarin@23920
  1698
unfolded in interpreted theorems.  This is useful for replacing
ballarin@23920
  1699
defined concepts (constants depending on locale parameters) by
ballarin@23920
  1700
concepts already existing in the target context.  Example:
ballarin@23920
  1701
ballarin@23920
  1702
  interpretation partial_order ["op <= :: [int, int] => bool"]
ballarin@23920
  1703
    where "partial_order.less (op <=) (x::int) y = (x < y)"
ballarin@23920
  1704
wenzelm@24800
  1705
Typically, the constant `partial_order.less' is created by a
wenzelm@24800
  1706
definition specification element in the context of locale
wenzelm@24800
  1707
partial_order.
wenzelm@24800
  1708
wenzelm@24859
  1709
* Method "induct": improved internal context management to support
wenzelm@24800
  1710
local fixes and defines on-the-fly. Thus explicit meta-level
wenzelm@24800
  1711
connectives !!  and ==> are rarely required anymore in inductive goals
wenzelm@24800
  1712
(using object-logic connectives for this purpose has been long
wenzelm@24800
  1713
obsolete anyway). Common proof patterns are explained in
wenzelm@25177
  1714
src/HOL/Induct/Common_Patterns.thy, see also
wenzelm@25177
  1715
src/HOL/Isar_examples/Puzzle.thy and src/HOL/Lambda for realistic
wenzelm@25177
  1716
examples.
wenzelm@24606
  1717
wenzelm@24859
  1718
* Method "induct": improved handling of simultaneous goals. Instead of
wenzelm@24606
  1719
introducing object-level conjunction, the statement is now split into
wenzelm@24606
  1720
several conclusions, while the corresponding symbolic cases are nested
wenzelm@24606
  1721
accordingly. INCOMPATIBILITY, proofs need to be structured explicitly,
wenzelm@25177
  1722
see src/HOL/Induct/Common_Patterns.thy, for example.
wenzelm@24606
  1723
wenzelm@24859
  1724
* Method "induct": mutual induction rules are now specified as a list
wenzelm@24800
  1725
of rule sharing the same induction cases. HOL packages usually provide
wenzelm@24606
  1726
foo_bar.inducts for mutually defined items foo and bar (e.g. inductive
wenzelm@24859
  1727
predicates/sets or datatypes). INCOMPATIBILITY, users need to specify
wenzelm@24859
  1728
mutual induction rules differently, i.e. like this:
wenzelm@18506
  1729
wenzelm@18506
  1730
  (induct rule: foo_bar.inducts)
wenzelm@18506
  1731
  (induct set: foo bar)
wenzelm@24859
  1732
  (induct pred: foo bar)
wenzelm@18506
  1733
  (induct type: foo bar)
wenzelm@18506
  1734
wenzelm@18506
  1735
The ML function ProjectRule.projections turns old-style rules into the
wenzelm@18506
  1736
new format.
wenzelm@18506
  1737
wenzelm@24859
  1738
* Method "coinduct": dual of induction, see
wenzelm@18399
  1739
src/HOL/Library/Coinductive_List.thy for various examples.
wenzelm@18399
  1740
wenzelm@24859
  1741
* Method "cases", "induct", "coinduct": the ``(open)'' option is
wenzelm@24859
  1742
considered a legacy feature.
wenzelm@24859
  1743
wenzelm@20919
  1744
* Attribute "symmetric" produces result with standardized schematic
wenzelm@20919
  1745
variables (index 0).  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@20919
  1746
wenzelm@22126
  1747
* Simplifier: by default the simplifier trace only shows top level
wenzelm@22126
  1748
rewrites now. That is, trace_simp_depth_limit is set to 1 by
wenzelm@22126
  1749
default. Thus there is less danger of being flooded by the trace. The
wenzelm@22126
  1750
trace indicates where parts have been suppressed.
nipkow@18674
  1751
  
wenzelm@18536
  1752
* Provers/classical: removed obsolete classical version of elim_format
wenzelm@18536
  1753
attribute; classical elim/dest rules are now treated uniformly when
wenzelm@18536
  1754
manipulating the claset.
wenzelm@18536
  1755
wenzelm@18694
  1756
* Provers/classical: stricter checks to ensure that supplied intro,
wenzelm@18694
  1757
dest and elim rules are well-formed; dest and elim rules must have at
wenzelm@18694
  1758
least one premise.
wenzelm@18694
  1759
wenzelm@18694
  1760
* Provers/classical: attributes dest/elim/intro take an optional
wenzelm@18695
  1761
weight argument for the rule (just as the Pure versions).  Weights are
wenzelm@18696
  1762
ignored by automated tools, but determine the search order of single
wenzelm@18694
  1763
rule steps.
paulson@18557
  1764
wenzelm@18536
  1765
* Syntax: input syntax now supports dummy variable binding "%_. b",
wenzelm@18536
  1766
where the body does not mention the bound variable.  Note that dummy
wenzelm@18536
  1767
patterns implicitly depend on their context of bounds, which makes
wenzelm@18536
  1768
"{_. _}" match any set comprehension as expected.  Potential
wenzelm@18536
  1769
INCOMPATIBILITY -- parse translations need to cope with syntactic
wenzelm@18536
  1770
constant "_idtdummy" in the binding position.
wenzelm@18536
  1771
wenzelm@18536
  1772
* Syntax: removed obsolete syntactic constant "_K" and its associated
wenzelm@18536
  1773
parse translation.  INCOMPATIBILITY -- use dummy abstraction instead,
wenzelm@18536
  1774
for example "A -> B" => "Pi A (%_. B)".
wenzelm@17779
  1775
wenzelm@20582
  1776
* Pure: 'class_deps' command visualizes the subclass relation, using
wenzelm@20582
  1777
the graph browser tool.
wenzelm@20582
  1778
wenzelm@24800
  1779
* Pure: 'print_theory' now suppresses certain internal declarations by

  1780
default; use '!' option for full details.

INCOMPATIBILITY.  Adaptions may be required in the following cases:
haftmann@25184
  1833
haftmann@25184
  1834
a) User-defined constants using any of the names "plus", "minus",
haftmann@25184
  1835
"times", "less" or "less_eq". The standard syntax translations for
haftmann@25184
  1836
"+", "-" and "*" may go wrong.  INCOMPATIBILITY: use more specific
haftmann@25184
  1837
names.
haftmann@25184
  1838
haftmann@25184
  1839
b) Variables named "plus", "minus", "times", "less", "less_eq"
haftmann@25184
  1840
INCOMPATIBILITY: use more specific names.
haftmann@25184
  1841
haftmann@25184
  1842
c) Permutative equations (e.g. "a + b = b + a")
haftmann@25184
  1843
Since the change of names also changes the order of terms, permutative
haftmann@25184
  1844
rewrite rules may get applied in a different order. Experience shows
haftmann@25184
  1845
that this is rarely the case (only two adaptions in the whole Isabelle
haftmann@25184
  1846

  1847
haftmann@25184
  1848
d) ML code directly refering to constant names
haftmann@25184
  1849
This in general only affects hand-written proof tactics, simprocs and
haftmann@25184
  1850
so on.  INCOMPATIBILITY: grep your sourcecode and replace names.
haftmann@25184
  1851
Consider using @{const_name} antiquotation.
haftmann@25184
  1852
haftmann@25184
  1853
* New class "default" with associated constant "default".
haftmann@25184
  1854
haftmann@25184
  1855
* Function "sgn" is now overloaded and available on int, real, complex
haftmann@25184
  1856
(and other numeric types), using class "sgn".  Two possible defs of
haftmann@25184
  1857
sgn are given as equational assumptions in the classes sgn_if and
haftmann@25184
  1858
sgn_div_norm; ordered_idom now also inherits from sgn_if.
haftmann@25184
  1859
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
  1860
haftmann@25184
  1861
* Locale "partial_order" now unified with class "order" (cf. theory
haftmann@25184
  1862
Orderings), added parameter "less".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
  1863
haftmann@25184
  1864
* Renamings in classes "order" and "linorder": facts "refl", "trans" and
haftmann@25184
  1865
"cases" to "order_refl", "order_trans" and "linorder_cases", to avoid
haftmann@25184
  1866
clashes with HOL "refl" and "trans".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
  1867
haftmann@25184
  1868
* Classes "order" and "linorder": potential INCOMPATIBILITY due to
haftmann@25184
  1869
changed order of proof goals in instance proofs.
haftmann@25184
  1870
haftmann@25184
  1871
* The transitivity reasoner for partial and linear orders is set up
haftmann@25184
  1872
for classes "order" and "linorder".  Instances of the reasoner are available
haftmann@25184
  1873
in all contexts importing or interpreting the corresponding locales.
haftmann@25184
  1874
Method "order" invokes the reasoner separately; the reasoner
haftmann@25184
  1875
is also integrated with the Simplifier as a solver.  Diagnostic
haftmann@25184
  1876
command 'print_orders' shows the available instances of the reasoner
haftmann@25184
  1877
in the current context.
haftmann@25184
  1878
haftmann@25184
  1879
* Localized monotonicity predicate in theory "Orderings"; integrated
haftmann@25184
  1880
lemmas max_of_mono and min_of_mono with this predicate.
haftmann@25184
  1881
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
  1882
haftmann@25184
  1883
* Formulation of theorem "dense" changed slightly due to integration
haftmann@25184
  1884
with new class dense_linear_order.
haftmann@25184
  1885
haftmann@25184
  1886
* Uniform lattice theory development in HOL.
haftmann@25184
  1887
haftmann@25184
  1888
    constants "meet" and "join" now named "inf" and "sup"
haftmann@25184
  1889
    constant "Meet" now named "Inf"
haftmann@25184
  1890
haftmann@25184
  1891
    classes "meet_semilorder" and "join_semilorder" now named
haftmann@25184
  1892
      "lower_semilattice" and "upper_semilattice"
haftmann@25184
  1893
    class "lorder" now named "lattice"
haftmann@25184
  1894
    class "comp_lat" now named "complete_lattice"
haftmann@25184
  1895
haftmann@25184
  1896
    Instantiation of lattice classes allows explicit definitions
haftmann@25184
  1897
    for "inf" and "sup" operations (or "Inf" and "Sup" for complete lattices).

haftmann@24993
  2032
  - Code_Integer represents HOL integers by big integer literals in target
haftmann@23850
  2033
    languages.
haftmann@24993
  2034
  - Code_Char represents HOL characters by character literals in target
haftmann@23850
  2035
    languages.
haftmann@24993
  2036
  - Code_Char_chr like Code_Char, but also offers treatment of character
haftmann@24993
  2037
    codes; includes Code_Integer.
wenzelm@24800
  2038
  - Executable_Set allows to generate code for finite sets using lists.
wenzelm@24800
  2039
  - Executable_Rat implements rational numbers as triples (sign, enumerator,
haftmann@23850
  2040
    denominator).
wenzelm@24800
  2041
  - Executable_Real implements a subset of real numbers, namly those
haftmann@23850
  2042
    representable by rational numbers.
wenzelm@24800
  2043
  - Efficient_Nat implements natural numbers by integers, which in general will
haftmann@23850
  2044
    result in higher efficency; pattern matching with 0/Suc is eliminated;
haftmann@24993
  2045
    includes Code_Integer.
haftmann@24993
  2046
  - Code_Index provides an additional datatype index which is mapped to
haftmann@24993
  2047
    target-language built-in integers.
haftmann@26355
  2048
  - Code_Message provides an additional datatype message_string which is isomorphic to
haftmann@24993
  2049
    strings; messages are mapped to target-language strings.

  2100
  INCOMPATIBILITIES:
berghofe@23783
  2101
berghofe@23783
  2102
  - Since declaration and definition of inductive sets or predicates
wenzelm@24800
  2103
    is no longer separated, abbreviations involving the newly
wenzelm@24800
  2104
    introduced sets or predicates must be specified together with the
wenzelm@24800
  2105
    introduction rules after the 'where' keyword (see above), rather
wenzelm@24800
  2106
    than before the actual inductive definition.
wenzelm@24800
  2107
wenzelm@24800
  2108
  - The variables in induction and elimination rules are now
wenzelm@24800
  2109
    quantified in the order of their occurrence in the introduction
wenzelm@24800
  2110
    rules, rather than in alphabetical order. Since this may break
wenzelm@24800
  2111
    some proofs, these proofs either have to be repaired, e.g. by
wenzelm@24800
  2112
    reordering the variables a_i_1 ... a_i_{k_i} in Isar 'case'
wenzelm@24800
  2113
    statements of the form
berghofe@23783
  2114
berghofe@23783
  2115
      case (rule_i a_i_1 ... a_i_{k_i})
berghofe@23783
  2116
berghofe@23783
  2117
    or the old order of quantification has to be restored by explicitly adding
berghofe@23783
  2118
    meta-level quantifiers in the introduction rules, i.e.
berghofe@23783
  2119
berghofe@23783
  2120
      | rule_i: "!!a_i_1 ... a_i_{k_i}. ... ==> p z_1 ... z_m t_i_1 ... t_i_n"
berghofe@23783
  2121
berghofe@23783
  2122
  - The format of the elimination rules is now
berghofe@23783
  2123
berghofe@23783
  2124
      p z_1 ... z_m x_1 ... x_n ==>

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

        ==> ... ==> P
berghofe@23783
  2139
wenzelm@24800
  2140
    This may require terms in goals to be expanded to n-tuples
wenzelm@24800
  2141
    (e.g. using case_tac or simplification with the split_paired_all
wenzelm@24800
  2142
    rule) before the above elimination rule is applicable.
wenzelm@24800
  2143
wenzelm@24800
  2144
  - The elimination or case analysis rules for (mutually) inductive
wenzelm@24800
  2145
    sets or predicates are now called "p_1.cases" ... "p_k.cases". The
wenzelm@24800
  2146
    list of rules "p_1_..._p_k.elims" is no longer available.
berghofe@23783
  2147
krauss@25198
  2148
* New package "function"/"fun" for general recursive functions,
krauss@25198
  2149
supporting mutual and nested recursion, definitions in local contexts,
krauss@25198
  2150
more general pattern matching and partiality. See HOL/ex/Fundefs.thy
krauss@25198
  2151
for small examples, and the separate tutorial on the function
krauss@25198
  2152
package. The old recdef "package" is still available as before, but
krauss@25198
  2153
users are encouraged to use the new package.
krauss@25198
  2154
krauss@25198
  2155
* Method "lexicographic_order" automatically synthesizes termination
krauss@25198
  2156
relations as lexicographic combinations of size measures. 
krauss@25198
  2157
wenzelm@24800
  2158
* Case-expressions allow arbitrary constructor-patterns (including
wenzelm@24800
  2159
"_") and take their order into account, like in functional
wenzelm@24800
  2160
programming.  Internally, this is translated into nested
wenzelm@24800
  2161
case-expressions; missing cases are added and mapped to the predefined
wenzelm@24800
  2162
constant "undefined". In complicated cases printing may no longer show
wenzelm@24800
  2163
the original input but the internal form. Lambda-abstractions allow
wenzelm@24800
  2164
the same form of pattern matching: "% pat1 => e1 | ..." is an
wenzelm@24800
  2165
abbreviation for "%x. case x of pat1 => e1 | ..." where x is a new
wenzelm@24800
  2166
variable.
nipkow@23564
  2167
huffman@23468
  2168
* IntDef: The constant "int :: nat => int" has been removed; now "int"
wenzelm@24800
  2169
is an abbreviation for "of_nat :: nat => int". The simplification
wenzelm@24800
  2170
rules for "of_nat" have been changed to work like "int" did
wenzelm@24800
  2171
previously.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY:
huffman@23468
  2172
  - "of_nat (Suc m)" simplifies to "1 + of_nat m" instead of "of_nat m + 1"
huffman@23468
  2173
  - of_nat_diff and of_nat_mult are no longer default simp rules
huffman@23377
  2174
chaieb@23295
  2175
* Method "algebra" solves polynomial equations over (semi)rings using
wenzelm@24800
  2176
Groebner bases. The (semi)ring structure is defined by locales and the
wenzelm@24800
  2177
tool setup depends on that generic context. Installing the method for
wenzelm@24800
  2178
a specific type involves instantiating the locale and possibly adding
wenzelm@24800
  2179
declarations for computation on the coefficients.  The method is
wenzelm@24800
  2180
already instantiated for natural numbers and for the axiomatic class
wenzelm@24800
  2181
of idoms with numerals.  See also the paper by Chaieb and Wenzel at
wenzelm@24800
  2182

wenzelm@24800
  2183
architecture of context-aware proof-tools.
wenzelm@24800
  2184
wenzelm@25033
  2185
* Method "ferrack" implements quantifier elimination over
wenzelm@25033
  2186
special-purpose dense linear orders using locales (analogous to
wenzelm@25033
  2187
"algebra"). The method is already installed for class
wenzelm@25033
  2188
{ordered_field,recpower,number_ring} which subsumes real, hyperreal,
wenzelm@25033
  2189
rat, etc.
wenzelm@25033
  2190
wenzelm@24800
  2191
* Former constant "List.op @" now named "List.append".  Use ML
wenzelm@24800
  2192
antiquotations @{const_name List.append} or @{term " ... @ ... "} to
wenzelm@24800
  2193
circumvent possible incompatibilities when working on ML level.
wenzelm@24800
  2194
haftmann@24996
  2195
* primrec: missing cases mapped to "undefined" instead of "arbitrary".
haftmann@22845
  2196
wenzelm@24800
  2197
* New function listsum :: 'a list => 'a for arbitrary monoids.
wenzelm@24800
  2198
Special syntax: "SUM x <- xs. f x" (and latex variants)
wenzelm@24800
  2199
wenzelm@24800
  2200
* New syntax for Haskell-like list comprehension (input only), eg.
wenzelm@25177
  2201
[(x,y). x <- xs, y <- ys, x ~= y], see also src/HOL/List.thy.
wenzelm@24800
  2202
wenzelm@24800
  2203
* The special syntax for function "filter" has changed from [x :
wenzelm@24800
  2204
xs. P] to [x <- xs. P] to avoid an ambiguity caused by list
wenzelm@24800
  2205
comprehension syntax, and for uniformity.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  2206
wenzelm@24800
  2207
* [a..b] is now defined for arbitrary linear orders.  It used to be
wenzelm@24800
  2208
defined on nat only, as an abbreviation for [a..<Suc b]
wenzelm@24800
  2209
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  2210
wenzelm@24800
  2211
* Renamed lemma "set_take_whileD"  to "set_takeWhileD".
wenzelm@24800
  2212
wenzelm@25177
  2213
* New functions "sorted" and "sort" in src/HOL/List.thy.
wenzelm@24800
  2214
wenzelm@24800
  2215
* New lemma collection field_simps (an extension of ring_simps) for
wenzelm@24800
  2216
manipulating (in)equations involving division. Multiplies with all
wenzelm@24800
  2217
denominators that can be proved to be non-zero (in equations) or
wenzelm@24800
  2218
positive/negative (in inequations).
nipkow@23480
  2219
nipkow@23480
  2220
* Lemma collections ring_eq_simps, group_eq_simps and ring_distrib
wenzelm@24800
  2221
have been improved and renamed to ring_simps, group_simps and
wenzelm@24800
  2222
ring_distribs.  Removed lemmas field_xyz in theory Ring_and_Field
wenzelm@24800
  2223
because they were subsumed by lemmas xyz.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  2224
wenzelm@25177
  2225
* Theory Library/Commutative_Ring: switched from recdef to function
wenzelm@24800
  2226
package; constants add, mul, pow now curried.  Infix syntax for
wenzelm@24800
  2227
algebraic operations.
haftmann@22735
  2228
wenzelm@24800
  2229
* Dropped redundant lemma def_imp_eq in favor of meta_eq_to_obj_eq.
haftmann@22218
  2230
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@22218
  2231
wenzelm@24800
  2232
* Dropped redundant lemma if_def2 in favor of if_bool_eq_conj.
haftmann@22218
  2233
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@22218
  2234
wenzelm@22126
  2235
* HOL/records: generalised field-update to take a function on the
wenzelm@22126
  2236
field rather than the new value: r(|A := x|) is translated to A_update
wenzelm@22126
  2237
(K x) r The K-combinator that is internally used is called K_record.
schirmer@21226
  2238
INCOMPATIBILITY: Usage of the plain update functions has to be
schirmer@21226
  2239
adapted.
schirmer@21226
  2240
 
wenzelm@24800
  2241
* Class "semiring_0" now contains annihilation axioms x * 0 = 0 and 0
wenzelm@24800
  2242
* x = 0, which are required for a semiring.  Richer structures do not
wenzelm@24800
  2243
inherit from semiring_0 anymore, because this property is a theorem
wenzelm@24800
  2244
there, not an axiom.  INCOMPATIBILITY: In instances of semiring_0,
wenzelm@24800
  2245
there is more to prove, but this is mostly trivial.
wenzelm@24800
  2246
wenzelm@24800
  2247
* Class "recpower" is generalized to arbitrary monoids, not just
wenzelm@24800
  2248
commutative semirings.  INCOMPATIBILITY: may need to incorporate
haftmann@25163
  2249
commutativity or semiring properties additionally.
haftmann@21215
  2250
haftmann@21099
  2251
* Constant "List.list_all2" in List.thy now uses authentic syntax.
wenzelm@24800
  2252
INCOMPATIBILITY: translations containing list_all2 may go wrong,
wenzelm@24800
  2253
better use 'abbreviation'.
wenzelm@24800
  2254
wenzelm@24800
  2255
* Renamed constant "List.op mem" to "List.member".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  2256
wenzelm@22126
  2257
* Numeral syntax: type 'bin' which was a mere type copy of 'int' has
wenzelm@24800
  2258
been abandoned in favour of plain 'int'.  INCOMPATIBILITY --
wenzelm@22126
  2259
significant changes for setting up numeral syntax for types:
wenzelm@24800
  2260
  - New constants Numeral.pred and Numeral.succ instead
haftmann@20485
  2261
      of former Numeral.bin_pred and Numeral.bin_succ.
haftmann@20485
  2262
  - Use integer operations instead of bin_add, bin_mult and so on.
haftmann@20485
  2263
  - Numeral simplification theorems named Numeral.numeral_simps instead of Bin_simps.
haftmann@20485
  2264
  - ML structure Bin_Simprocs now named Int_Numeral_Base_Simprocs.
haftmann@20485
  2265
wenzelm@25177
  2266
See src/HOL/Integ/IntArith.thy for an example setup.
wenzelm@25177
  2267
wenzelm@25177
  2268
* Command 'normal_form' computes the normal form of a term that may
wenzelm@25177
  2269
contain free variables.  For example ``normal_form "rev [a, b, c]"''
wenzelm@25177
  2270
produces ``[b, c, a]'' (without proof).  This command is suitable for
wenzelm@25177
  2271
heavy-duty computations because the functions are compiled to ML
wenzelm@25177
  2272
first.  Correspondingly, a method "normalization" is provided.  See
wenzelm@25177
  2273
further src/HOL/ex/NormalForm.thy and src/Tools/nbe.ML.
nipkow@19895
  2274
wenzelm@17996
  2275
* Alternative iff syntax "A <-> B" for equality on bool (with priority
wenzelm@17996
  2276
25 like -->); output depends on the "iff" print_mode, the default is
wenzelm@17996
  2277
"A = B" (with priority 50).
wenzelm@17996
  2278
wenzelm@21265
  2279
* Relations less (<) and less_eq (<=) are also available on type bool.
wenzelm@21265
  2280
Modified syntax to disallow nesting without explicit parentheses,
wenzelm@24800
  2281
e.g. "(x < y) < z" or "x < (y < z)", but NOT "x < y < z".  Potential
wenzelm@24800
  2282
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@21265
  2283
nipkow@18674
  2284
* "LEAST x:A. P" expands to "LEAST x. x:A & P" (input only).
nipkow@18674
  2285
krauss@20716
  2286
* Relation composition operator "op O" now has precedence 75 and binds
krauss@20716
  2287
stronger than union and intersection. INCOMPATIBILITY.
krauss@20716
  2288
wenzelm@22126
  2289
* The old set interval syntax "{m..n(}" (and relatives) has been
wenzelm@22126
  2290
removed.  Use "{m..<n}" (and relatives) instead.
nipkow@19377
  2291
wenzelm@17865
  2292
* In the context of the assumption "~(s = t)" the Simplifier rewrites
wenzelm@24800
  2293
"t = s" to False (by simproc "neq").  INCOMPATIBILITY, consider using
wenzelm@24800
  2294
``declare [[simproc del: neq]]''.
wenzelm@24800
  2295
wenzelm@24800
  2296
* Simplifier: "m dvd n" where m and n are numbers is evaluated to
wenzelm@24800
  2297
True/False.
wenzelm@24800
  2298
wenzelm@24800
  2299
* Theorem Cons_eq_map_conv no longer declared as "simp".
nipkow@19211
  2300
ballarin@19279
  2301
* Theorem setsum_mult renamed to setsum_right_distrib.
ballarin@19279
  2302
nipkow@19211
  2303
* Prefer ex1I over ex_ex1I in single-step reasoning, e.g. by the
wenzelm@22126
  2304
``rule'' method.
wenzelm@22126
  2305
wenzelm@24800
  2306
* Reimplemented methods "sat" and "satx", with several improvements:
wenzelm@24800
  2307
goals no longer need to be stated as "<prems> ==> False", equivalences
wenzelm@24800
  2308
(i.e. "=" on type bool) are handled, variable names of the form
wenzelm@24800
  2309
"lit_<n>" are no longer reserved, significant speedup.
wenzelm@24800
  2310
wenzelm@24800
  2311
* Methods "sat" and "satx" can now replay MiniSat proof traces.
wenzelm@22126
  2312
zChaff is still supported as well.
wenzelm@22126
  2313
wenzelm@22126
  2314
* 'inductive' and 'datatype': provide projections of mutual rules,
wenzelm@22126
  2315
bundled as foo_bar.inducts;
wenzelm@22126
  2316
wenzelm@22126
  2317
* Library: moved theories Parity, GCD, Binomial, Infinite_Set to
wenzelm@22126
  2318
Library.
wenzelm@21256

  2320
* Library: moved theory Accessible_Part to main HOL.
wenzelm@19572
  2321
wenzelm@18446
  2322
* Library: added theory Coinductive_List of potentially infinite lists
wenzelm@18446
  2323
as greatest fixed-point.
wenzelm@18399
  2324
wenzelm@19254
  2325
* Library: added theory AssocList which implements (finite) maps as
schirmer@19252
  2326
association lists.
webertj@17809
  2327
wenzelm@24800
  2328
* Method "evaluation" solves goals (i.e. a boolean expression)
wenzelm@24800
  2329
efficiently by compiling it to ML.  The goal is "proved" (via an
wenzelm@24800
  2330
oracle) if it evaluates to True.
wenzelm@20807
  2331
wenzelm@20807
  2332
* Linear arithmetic now splits certain operators (e.g. min, max, abs)
wenzelm@24800
  2333
also when invoked by the simplifier.  This results in the Simplifier
wenzelm@24800
  2334
being more powerful on arithmetic goals.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  2335
Configuration option fast_arith_split_limit=0 recovers the old
wenzelm@24800
  2336
behavior.
webertj@20217
  2337
wenzelm@22126
  2338
* Support for hex (0x20) and binary (0b1001) numerals.
wenzelm@19254
  2339
wenzelm@20807
  2340
* New method: reify eqs (t), where eqs are equations for an
wenzelm@20807
  2341
interpretation I :: 'a list => 'b => 'c and t::'c is an optional
wenzelm@20807
  2342
parameter, computes a term s::'b and a list xs::'a list and proves the
wenzelm@20807
  2343
theorem I xs s = t. This is also known as reification or quoting. The
wenzelm@20807
  2344
resulting theorem is applied to the subgoal to substitute t with I xs
wenzelm@20807
  2345
s.  If t is omitted, the subgoal itself is reified.
wenzelm@20807
  2346
wenzelm@20807
  2347
* New method: reflection corr_thm eqs (t). The parameters eqs and (t)
wenzelm@20807
  2348
are as explained above. corr_thm is a theorem for I vs (f t) = I vs t,
wenzelm@20807
  2349
where f is supposed to be a computable function (in the sense of code
wenzelm@20807
  2350
generattion). The method uses reify to compute s and xs as above then
wenzelm@20807
  2351
applies corr_thm and uses normalization by evaluation to "prove" f s =
wenzelm@20807
  2352
r and finally gets the theorem t = r, which is again applied to the
wenzelm@25177
  2353
subgoal. An Example is available in src/HOL/ex/ReflectionEx.thy.
wenzelm@25177
  2354
wenzelm@25177
  2355
* Reflection: Automatic reification now handels binding, an example is

available in src/HOL/ex/ReflectionEx.thy
wenzelm@20807
  2357
wenzelm@25397
  2358
* HOL-Statespace: ``State Spaces: The Locale Way'' introduces a
schirmer@25409
  2359
command 'statespace' that is similar to 'record', but introduces an
wenzelm@25397
  2360
abstract specification based on the locale infrastructure instead of
wenzelm@25397
  2361
HOL types.  This leads to extra flexibility in composing state spaces,
wenzelm@25397
  2362
in particular multiple inheritance and renaming of components.

  2368
inputs so that root n (- x) = - root n x and sqrt (- x) = - sqrt x.
huffman@22971
  2369
Nonnegativity side conditions have been removed from many lemmas, so

  2449
(even on SML/NJ).
wenzelm@24643
  2450
wenzelm@22138

formal entities in the source, referring to the context available at

The same works for sources being ``used'' within an Isar context.
wenzelm@22151

wenzelm@22152
  2479
* ML in Isar: improved error reporting; extra verbosity with
wenzelm@24706
  2480
ML_Context.trace enabled.
wenzelm@22152
  2481
wenzelm@19032
  2482
* Pure/General/table.ML: the join operations now works via exceptions
wenzelm@24706
  2483
DUP/SAME instead of type option. This is simpler in simple cases, and
wenzelm@19081
  2484
admits slightly more efficient complex applications.
wenzelm@18446
  2485
wenzelm@24800
  2486
* Pure: 'advanced' translation functions (parse_translation etc.) now
wenzelm@24800
  2487
use Context.generic instead of just theory.
wenzelm@24800
  2488
wenzelm@18642
  2489
* Pure: datatype Context.generic joins theory/Proof.context and
wenzelm@18644
  2490
provides some facilities for code that works in either kind of
wenzelm@18642
  2491
context, notably GenericDataFun for uniform theory and proof data.
wenzelm@18642
  2492
wenzelm@18737
  2493
* Pure: simplified internal attribute type, which is now always
wenzelm@24706
  2494
Context.generic * thm -> Context.generic * thm. Global (theory) vs.
wenzelm@24706
  2495
local (Proof.context) attributes have been discontinued, while
wenzelm@24706
  2496
minimizing code duplication. Thm.rule_attribute and
wenzelm@24706

Thm.declaration_attribute build canonical attributes; see also structure

wenzelm@19006
  2500
declarations and definitions.
wenzelm@19006
  2501
wenzelm@24800
  2502
* Context data interfaces (Theory/Proof/GenericDataFun): removed
wenzelm@24800
  2503
name/print, uninitialized data defaults to ad-hoc copy of empty value,
wenzelm@24800
  2504
init only required for impure data. INCOMPATIBILITY: empty really need
wenzelm@24800
  2505
to be empty (no dependencies on theory content!)
wenzelm@24800
  2506
wenzelm@19508
  2507
* Pure/kernel: consts certification ignores sort constraints given in
wenzelm@24800
  2508
signature declarations. (This information is not relevant to the
wenzelm@24800
  2509
logic, but only for type inference.) SIGNIFICANT INTERNAL CHANGE,
wenzelm@24800
  2510
potential INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@19508
  2511
wenzelm@19508
  2512
* Pure: axiomatic type classes are now purely definitional, with
wenzelm@19508
  2513
explicit proofs of class axioms and super class relations performed
wenzelm@24706
  2514
internally. See Pure/axclass.ML for the main internal interfaces --
wenzelm@19508
  2515
notably AxClass.define_class supercedes AxClass.add_axclass, and
wenzelm@24706
  2516
AxClass.axiomatize_class/classrel/arity supersede
wenzelm@19508
  2517
Sign.add_classes/classrel/arities.
wenzelm@19508
  2518
wenzelm@19006
  2519
* Pure/Isar: Args/Attrib parsers operate on Context.generic --
wenzelm@19006
  2520
global/local versions on theory vs. Proof.context have been
wenzelm@19006
  2521
discontinued; Attrib.syntax and Method.syntax have been adapted
wenzelm@19006
  2522
accordingly.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt parser expressions for
wenzelm@19006
  2523
attributes, methods, etc.
wenzelm@18642
  2524
wenzelm@18446
  2525
* Pure: several functions of signature "... -> theory -> theory * ..."
wenzelm@18446
  2526
have been reoriented to "... -> theory -> ... * theory" in order to
wenzelm@18446
  2527
allow natural usage in combination with the ||>, ||>>, |-> and
wenzelm@18446
  2528
fold_map combinators.
haftmann@18051
  2529
wenzelm@21647
  2530
* Pure: official theorem names (closed derivations) and additional
wenzelm@21647
  2531
comments (tags) are now strictly separate.  Name hints -- which are
wenzelm@21647
  2532
maintained as tags -- may be attached any time without affecting the
wenzelm@21647
  2533
derivation.
wenzelm@21647
  2534
wenzelm@18020
  2535
* Pure: primitive rule lift_rule now takes goal cterm instead of an
wenzelm@18145
  2536
actual goal state (thm).  Use Thm.lift_rule (Thm.cprem_of st i) to
wenzelm@18020
  2537
achieve the old behaviour.
wenzelm@18020
  2538
wenzelm@18020
  2539
* Pure: the "Goal" constant is now called "prop", supporting a
wenzelm@18020
  2540
slightly more general idea of ``protecting'' meta-level rule
wenzelm@18020
  2541
statements.
wenzelm@18020
  2542
wenzelm@20040
  2543
* Pure: Logic.(un)varify only works in a global context, which is now
wenzelm@20040
  2544
enforced instead of silently assumed.  INCOMPATIBILITY, may use
wenzelm@20040
  2545
Logic.legacy_(un)varify as temporary workaround.
wenzelm@20040
  2546
wenzelm@20090
  2547
* Pure: structure Name provides scalable operations for generating
wenzelm@20090
  2548
internal variable names, notably Name.variants etc.  This replaces
wenzelm@20090
  2549
some popular functions from term.ML:
wenzelm@20090
  2550
wenzelm@20090
  2551
  Term.variant		->  Name.variant
wenzelm@24800
  2552
  Term.variantlist	->  Name.variant_list
wenzelm@20090
  2553
  Term.invent_names	->  Name.invent_list
wenzelm@20090
  2554
wenzelm@20090
  2555
Note that low-level renaming rarely occurs in new code -- operations
wenzelm@20090
  2556
from structure Variable are used instead (see below).
wenzelm@20090
  2557
wenzelm@20040
  2558
* Pure: structure Variable provides fundamental operations for proper
wenzelm@20040
  2559
treatment of fixed/schematic variables in a context.  For example,
wenzelm@20040
  2560
Variable.import introduces fixes for schematics of given facts and
wenzelm@20040
  2561
Variable.export reverses the effect (up to renaming) -- this replaces
wenzelm@20040
  2562
various freeze_thaw operations.
wenzelm@20040
  2563
wenzelm@18567
  2564
* Pure: structure Goal provides simple interfaces for
wenzelm@17981
  2565
init/conclude/finish and tactical prove operations (replacing former
wenzelm@20040
  2566
Tactic.prove).  Goal.prove is the canonical way to prove results
wenzelm@20040
  2567
within a given context; Goal.prove_global is a degraded version for
wenzelm@20040
  2568
theory level goals, including a global Drule.standard.  Note that
wenzelm@20040
  2569
OldGoals.prove_goalw_cterm has long been obsolete, since it is
wenzelm@20040
  2570
ill-behaved in a local proof context (e.g. with local fixes/assumes or
wenzelm@20040
  2571
in a locale context).
wenzelm@17981
  2572
wenzelm@24706
  2573
* Pure/Syntax: generic interfaces for parsing (Syntax.parse_term etc.)
wenzelm@24706
  2574
and type checking (Syntax.check_term etc.), with common combinations
wenzelm@24706
  2575
(Syntax.read_term etc.). These supersede former Sign.read_term etc.
wenzelm@24706
  2576
which are considered legacy and await removal.
wenzelm@24706
  2577
wenzelm@24920
  2578
* Pure/Syntax: generic interfaces for type unchecking
wenzelm@24920
  2579
(Syntax.uncheck_terms etc.) and unparsing (Syntax.unparse_term etc.),
wenzelm@24920
  2580
with common combinations (Syntax.pretty_term, Syntax.string_of_term
wenzelm@24920
  2581
etc.).  Former Sign.pretty_term, Sign.string_of_term etc. are still
wenzelm@24924
  2582
available for convenience, but refer to the very same operations using
wenzelm@24924
  2583
a mere theory instead of a full context.

* Isar: simplified treatment of user-level errors, using exception
wenzelm@18687
  2586
ERROR of string uniformly.  Function error now merely raises ERROR,
wenzelm@18686
  2587
without any side effect on output channels.  The Isar toplevel takes
wenzelm@18686
  2588
care of proper display of ERROR exceptions.  ML code may use plain
wenzelm@18686
  2589
handle/can/try; cat_error may be used to concatenate errors like this:
wenzelm@18686
  2590
wenzelm@18686
  2591
  ... handle ERROR msg => cat_error msg "..."
wenzelm@18686
  2592
wenzelm@18686
  2593
Toplevel ML code (run directly or through the Isar toplevel) may be
wenzelm@18687
  2594
embedded into the Isar toplevel with exception display/debug like
wenzelm@18687
  2595
this:
wenzelm@18686
  2596
wenzelm@18686
  2597
  Isar.toplevel (fn () => ...)
wenzelm@18686
  2598
wenzelm@18686
  2599
INCOMPATIBILITY, removed special transform_error facilities, removed
wenzelm@18686
  2600
obsolete variants of user-level exceptions (ERROR_MESSAGE,
wenzelm@18686
  2601
Context.PROOF, ProofContext.CONTEXT, Proof.STATE, ProofHistory.FAIL)
wenzelm@18686
  2602
-- use plain ERROR instead.
wenzelm@18686
  2603
wenzelm@18815
  2604
* Isar: theory setup now has type (theory -> theory), instead of a
wenzelm@18722
  2605
list.  INCOMPATIBILITY, may use #> to compose setup functions.
wenzelm@18722
  2606
wenzelm@24706
  2607
* Isar: ML toplevel pretty printer for type Proof.context, subject to
wenzelm@24706
  2608
ProofContext.debug/verbose flags.
wenzelm@18815
  2609
wenzelm@18815
  2610
* Isar: Toplevel.theory_to_proof admits transactions that modify the
wenzelm@18815
  2611
theory before entering a proof state.  Transactions now always see a
wenzelm@18815
  2612
quasi-functional intermediate checkpoint, both in interactive and
wenzelm@18590
  2613
batch mode.
wenzelm@18567
  2614
wenzelm@24867
  2615
* Isar: simplified interfaces for outer syntax.  Renamed
wenzelm@24867
  2616
OuterSyntax.add_keywords to OuterSyntax.keywords.  Removed
wenzelm@24867
  2617
OuterSyntax.add_parsers -- this functionality is now included in
wenzelm@24867
  2618
OuterSyntax.command etc.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24867
  2619
wenzelm@17878
  2620
* Simplifier: the simpset of a running simplification process now
wenzelm@17878
  2621
contains a proof context (cf. Simplifier.the_context), which is the
wenzelm@17878
  2622
very context that the initial simpset has been retrieved from (by
wenzelm@17890
  2623
simpset_of/local_simpset_of).  Consequently, all plug-in components
wenzelm@17878
  2624
(solver, looper etc.) may depend on arbitrary proof data.
wenzelm@17878
  2625
wenzelm@17878
  2626
* Simplifier.inherit_context inherits the proof context (plus the
wenzelm@17878
  2627
local bounds) of the current simplification process; any simproc
wenzelm@17878
  2628
etc. that calls the Simplifier recursively should do this!  Removed
wenzelm@17878
  2629
former Simplifier.inherit_bounds, which is already included here --
