2 Subject: Announcing Isabelle2002

3 To: isabelle-users@cl.cam.ac.uk

5 Isabelle2002 is now available.

7 This release provides major improvements. The Isar language has

8 reached a mature state; the core engine is able to record full proof

9 terms; many aspects of the library have been reworked; several

10 substantial case studies have been added. Some changes may cause

11 incompatibility with earlier versions, but improve accessibility of

12 Isabelle for new users.

14 The most prominent highlights of Isabelle2002 are as follows (see the

15 NEWS of the distribution for more details).

17 * The Isabelle/HOL tutorial is to be published as LNCS 2283;

18 Isabelle2002 is the official version to go along with that book

19 (by Tobias Nipkow, Larry Paulson, Markus Wenzel).

21 * Pure: explicit proof terms for all internal inferences:

22 object-logics, proof tools etc. will benefit automatically

23 (by Stefan Berghofer).

25 * Pure/Isar: proper integration of the locale package for modular

26 theory development; additional support for rename/merge

27 operations, and type-inference for structured specifications

28 (by Markus Wenzel).

30 * Pure/Isar: streamlined induction proof patterns

31 (by Markus Wenzel).

33 * Pure/HOL: infrastructure for generating functional and relational

34 code, using the ML run-time environment (by Stefan Berghofer).

36 * HOL/library: numerals on all number types; several

37 improvements of tuple and record types; new definite description

38 operator; keep Hilbert's epsilon (Axiom of Choice) out of basic theories.

40 * HOL/Bali: large application concerning formal treatment of Java.

41 (by David von Oheimb and Norbert Schirmer).

43 * HOL/HoareParallel: large application concerning verification of

44 parallel imperative programs (Owicki-Gries method, Rely-Guarantee

45 method, including examples of garbage collection, mutual

46 exclusion, etc.)

47 (by Leonor Prensa Nieto).

49 * HOL/GroupTheory: group theory examples including Sylow's theorem

50 (by Florian Kammüller).

52 * HOL/IMP: new proofs in Isar format

53 (by Gerwin Klein).

55 * ZF/UNITY: typeless version of Chandy and Misra's formalism

56 (by Sidi O Ehmety).

58 * System: improvements and simplifications of document preparation

59 (by Markus Wenzel).

61 * System: support for Poly/ML 4.1.1 and PolyML/4.1.2, admitting

62 larger heap size of applications.

64 * System: support for MacOS X (for Poly/ML and SML/NJ).
