     2 Subject: Announcing Isabelle2002
     3 To: isabelle-users@cl.cam.ac.uk
     4 
     5 Isabelle2002 is now available.
     6 
     7 This release provides major improvements.  The Isar language has reached a
     8 mature state; the treatment of numerals has been streamlined; several
     9 substantial case studies have been added.  This occasionally causes
    10 incompatibility with earlier versions.
    11 
    12 The most prominent highlights of Isabelle2002 are as follows (see the
    13 NEWS of the distribution for more details).
    14 
    15   * The Isabelle/HOL tutorial has been published as LNCS 2283;
    16     Isabelle2002 is the official version to go along with that book
    17     (by Tobias Nipkow, Larry Paulson, Markus Wenzel).
    18 
    19   * Pure: explicit proof terms for all internal inferences:
    20     object-logics, proof tools etc. will benefit automatically
    21     (by Stefan Berghofer).
    22 
    23   * Pure/Isar: proper integration of the locale package for modular
    24     theory development; additional support for rename/merge
    25     operations, and type-inference for structured specifications
    26     (by Markus Wenzel).
    27 
    28   * Pure/Isar: streamlined induction proof patterns
    29     (by Markus Wenzel).
    30 
    31   * Pure/HOL: infrastructure for generating functional and relational
    32     code, using the ML run-time environment (by Stefan Berghofer).
    33 
    34   * HOL/library: numerals on all number types; several
    35     improvements of tuple and record types; new definite description
    36     operator; keep Hilbert's epsilon (Axiom of Choice) out of basic theories.
    37 
    38   * HOL/Bali: large application concerning formal treatment of Java.
    39     (by David von Oheimb and Norbert Schirmer).
    40 
    41   * HOL/Hoare_Parallel: large application concerning verification of
    42     parallel imperative programs (Owicki-Gries method etc.)
    43     (by Leonor Prensa Nieto).
    44 
    45   * HOL/GroupTheory: group theory examples including Sylow's theorem
    46     (by Florian Kammüller).
    47 
    48   * HOL/IMP: new proofs in Isar format
    49     (by Gerwin Klein).
    50 
    51   * ZF/UNITY: typeless version of Chandy and Misra's formalism
    52     (by Sidi O Ehmety).
    53 
    54   * System: improvements and simplifications of document preparation
    55     (by Markus Wenzel).
    56 
    57   * System: support for Poly/ML 4.1.1 and PolyML/4.1.2, admitting
    58     larger heap size of applications.
    59 
    60   * System: support for MacOS X (for Poly/ML and SML/NJ).
