     4 Isabelle2009-1 is now available.

     6 This release improves upon Isabelle2009 in many ways, see the NEWS
     7 file in the distribution for more details.  Some important changes
     8 are:
     9 
    10 * Isabelle tool "wwwfind" provides web interface for 'find_theorems'
    11 on a given logic image.
    12 
    13 * HOL-SMT: proof method "smt" for a combination of first-order logic
    14 with equality, linear and nonlinear (natural/integer/real) arithmetic,
    15 and fixed-size bitvectors.
    16 
    17 * HOL-Boogie: an interactive prover back-end for Boogie and VCC.
    18 
    19 * HOL: counterexample generator tool Nitpick based on the Kodkod
    20 relational model finder.
    21 
    22 * HOL: predicate compiler turning inductive into (executable)
    23 equational specifications.
    24 
    25 * HOL: refined number theory.
    26 
    27 * HOL: various parts of multivariate analysis.
    28 
    29 * HOL-Library: proof method "sos" (sum of squares) for nonlinear real
    30 arithmetic, based on external semidefinite programming solvers.
    31 
    32 * HOLCF: new definitional domain package.
    33 
    34 * Revised tutorial on locales.
    35 
    36 * ML: tacticals for subgoal focus.
    37 
    38 * ML: support for Poly/ML 5.3.0, with improved reporting of compiler
    39 errors and run-time exceptions, including detailed source positions.
    40 
    41 * Parallel checking of nested Isar proofs, with improved scalability
    42 up to 8 cores.
