2015-11-02 wenzelm 2015-11-02 clarified completion of Isabelle symbols within document source;
2015-09-21 wenzelm 2015-09-21 option editor_output_state;
2015-09-11 wenzelm 2015-09-11 convenient change of ML system architecture via system option ML_preference_64, which is grepped off-line from stored preferences during bootstrap;
2015-08-11 wenzelm 2015-08-11 init/exit depending on active debugger panels;
2015-08-10 wenzelm 2015-08-10 eliminated global option: breakpoints control this individually;

2015-01-29 wenzelm 2015-01-29 explicit threads_stack_limit (for recent Poly/ML SVN versions), which leads to soft interrupt instead of exhaustion of virtual memory, which is particularly relevant for the bigger address space of x86_64;
2015-01-25 wenzelm 2015-01-25 discontinued obsolete option "document_graph";
2014-12-22 wenzelm 2014-12-22 system option "pretty_margin" is superseded by "thy_output_margin";
2014-10-31 wenzelm 2014-10-31 discontinued pointless option: timing is always on (overall theory only);

2014-08-05 wenzelm 2014-08-05 added system option editor_output_delay: lower value might help big sessions under low-memory situations;
2014-05-06 wenzelm 2014-05-06 explicit option parallel_print to downgrade parallel scheduling, which might occasionally help for big and heavy "scripts";
2014-04-25 wenzelm 2014-04-25 suppress potential dangerous option (see 1baa5d19ac44);

2014-03-25 wenzelm 2014-03-25 clarified options ML_source_trace and ML_exception_trace (NB: the latter needs to be a system option, since the context is sometimes not available, e.g. for 'theory' command);

2013-08-25 wenzelm 2013-08-25 discontinued parallel_subproofs_saturation and related internal counters (superseded by parallel_subproofs_threshold and timing information); simplified Goal.future_enabled;
2013-07-31 wenzelm 2013-07-31 simplified / clarified execution priority: auto prints << 0, proofs < 0, eval = 0, print_state = 1;
2013-07-31 wenzelm 2013-07-31 simplified flag for continuous checking: avoid GUI complexity and slow checking of all theories (including prints);
2013-07-30 wenzelm 2013-07-30 recovered delay for Document.start_execution (see also 627fb639a2d9), which potentially improves throughput when many consecutive edits arrive;
2013-07-29 wenzelm 2013-07-29 NEWS; tuned description;
2013-07-29 wenzelm 2013-07-29 afford higher execution priority by default: defer proofs and thus stretch parallelism over whole document;

2013-07-27 wenzelm 2013-07-27 discontinued historic document formats;
