New in this Isabelle release
wenzelm@17754

----------------------------
wenzelm@17754
     6
wenzelm@17754
     7
*** General ***
wenzelm@17754
     8
wenzelm@17918
     9
* Theory syntax: the header format ``theory A = B + C:'' has been
wenzelm@17918
    10
discontinued in favour of ``theory A imports B C begin''.  Use isatool
wenzelm@17918
    11
fixheaders to convert existing theory files.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17918
    12
wenzelm@17918
    13
* Theory syntax: the old non-Isar theory file format has been
wenzelm@17918
    14
discontinued altogether.  Note that ML proof scripts may still be used
wenzelm@17918
    15
with Isar theories; migration is usually quite simple with the ML
wenzelm@17918
    16
function use_legacy_bindings.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17918
    17
wenzelm@19814
    18
* Theory syntax: some popular names (e.g. "class", "if") are now
wenzelm@19814
    19
keywords.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use double quotes.
wenzelm@19814
    20
wenzelm@17981
    21
* Legacy goal package: reduced interface to the bare minimum required
wenzelm@17981
    22
to keep existing proof scripts running.  Most other user-level
wenzelm@17981
    23
functions are now part of the OldGoals structure, which is *not* open
wenzelm@17981
    24
by default (consider isatool expandshort before open OldGoals).
wenzelm@17981
    25
Removed top_sg, prin, printyp, pprint_term/typ altogether, because
wenzelm@17981
    26
these tend to cause confusion about the actual goal (!) context being
wenzelm@17981
    27
used here, which is not necessarily the same as the_context().
wenzelm@17918
    28
wenzelm@17754
    29
* Command 'find_theorems': support "*" wildcard in "name:" criterion.
wenzelm@17754
    30
wenzelm@17754
    31
wenzelm@17865
    32
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@17865
    33
wenzelm@17869
    34
* Added antiquotations @{ML_type text} and @{ML_struct text} which
wenzelm@17869
    35
check the given source text as ML type/structure, printing verbatim.
wenzelm@17865
    36
wenzelm@17865
    37
wenzelm@17779
    38
*** Pure ***
wenzelm@17779
    39
wenzelm@19254
    40
* Command 'no_translations' removes translation rules from theory
wenzelm@19254
    41
syntax.
wenzelm@19254
    42
wenzelm@19625
    43
* Overloaded definitions are now actually checked for acyclic
wenzelm@19714
    44
dependencies.  The overloading scheme is slightly more general than
wenzelm@19714
    45
that of Haskell98, although Isabelle does not demand an exact
wenzelm@19714
    46
correspondence to type class and instance declarations.
wenzelm@19714
    47
INCOMPATIBILITY, use ``defs (unchecked overloaded)'' to admit more
wenzelm@19714
    48
exotic versions of overloading -- at the discretion of the user!
wenzelm@19711
    49
wenzelm@19711
    50
Polymorphic constants are represented via type arguments, i.e. the
wenzelm@19711
    51
instantiation that matches an instance against the most general
wenzelm@19711
    52
declaration given in the signature.  For example, with the declaration
wenzelm@19711
    53
c :: 'a => 'a => 'a, an instance c :: nat => nat => nat is represented
wenzelm@19711
    54
as c(nat).  Overloading is essentially simultaneous structural
wenzelm@19711
    55
recursion over such type arguments.  Incomplete specification patterns
wenzelm@19714
    56
impose global constraints on all occurrences, e.g. c('a * 'a) on the
wenzelm@19715
    57
LHS means that more general c('a * 'b) will be disallowed on any RHS.
wenzelm@19714
    58
Command 'print_theory' outputs the normalized system of recursive
wenzelm@19714
    59
equations, see section "definitions".
wenzelm@19625
    60
wenzelm@17865
    61
* Isar: improper proof element 'guess' is like 'obtain', but derives
wenzelm@17865
    62
the obtained context from the course of reasoning!  For example:
wenzelm@17865
    63
wenzelm@17865
    64
  assume "EX x y. A x & B y"   -- "any previous fact"
wenzelm@17865
    65
  then guess x and y by clarify
wenzelm@17865
    66
wenzelm@17865
    67
This technique is potentially adventurous, depending on the facts and
wenzelm@17865
    68
proof tools being involved here.
wenzelm@17865
    69
wenzelm@18020
    70
* Isar: known facts from the proof context may be specified as literal
wenzelm@18020
    71
propositions, using ASCII back-quote syntax.  This works wherever
wenzelm@18020
    72
named facts used to be allowed so far, in proof commands, proof
wenzelm@18020
    73
methods, attributes etc.  Literal facts are retrieved from the context
wenzelm@18020
    74
according to unification of type and term parameters.  For example,
wenzelm@18020
    75
provided that "A" and "A ==> B" and "!!x. P x ==> Q x" are known
wenzelm@18020
    76
theorems in the current context, then these are valid literal facts:
wenzelm@18020
    77
`A` and `A ==> B` and `!!x. P x ==> Q x" as well as `P a ==> Q a` etc.
wenzelm@18020
    78
wenzelm@18020
    79
There is also a proof method "fact" which does the same composition
wenzelm@18044
    80
for explicit goal states, e.g. the following proof texts coincide with
wenzelm@18044
    81
certain special cases of literal facts:
wenzelm@18020
    82
wenzelm@18020
    83
  have "A" by fact                 ==  note `A`
wenzelm@18020
    84
  have "A ==> B" by fact           ==  note `A ==> B`
wenzelm@18020
    85
  have "!!x. P x ==> Q x" by fact  ==  note `!!x. P x ==> Q x`
wenzelm@18020
    86
  have "P a ==> Q a" by fact       ==  note `P a ==> Q a`
wenzelm@18020
    87
wenzelm@20118
    88
* Isar: ":" (colon) is no longer a symbolic identifier character in
wenzelm@20118
    89
outer syntax.  Thus symbolic identifiers may be used without
wenzelm@20118
    90
additional white space in declarations like this: ``assume *: A''.
wenzelm@20118
    91
wenzelm@20013
    92
* Isar: 'print_facts' prints all local facts of the current context,
wenzelm@20013
    93
both named and unnamed ones.
wenzelm@20013
    94
wenzelm@18308
    95
* Isar: 'def' now admits simultaneous definitions, e.g.:
wenzelm@18308
    96
wenzelm@18308
    97
  def x == "t" and y == "u"
wenzelm@18308
    98
wenzelm@18540
    99
* Isar: added command 'unfolding', which is structurally similar to
wenzelm@18540
   100
'using', but affects both the goal state and facts by unfolding given
wenzelm@18815
   101
rewrite rules.  Thus many occurrences of the 'unfold' method or
wenzelm@18540
   102
'unfolded' attribute may be replaced by first-class proof text.
wenzelm@18540
   103
wenzelm@18815
   104
* Isar: methods 'unfold' / 'fold', attributes 'unfolded' / 'folded',
wenzelm@18815
   105
and command 'unfolding' now all support object-level equalities
wenzelm@18815
   106
(potentially conditional).  The underlying notion of rewrite rule is
wenzelm@18815
   107
analogous to the 'rule_format' attribute, but *not* that of the
wenzelm@18815
   108
Simplifier (which is usually more generous).
wenzelm@18815
   109
wenzelm@19220
   110
* Isar: the goal restriction operator [N] (default N = 1) evaluates a
wenzelm@19220
   111
method expression within a sandbox consisting of the first N
wenzelm@19240
   112
sub-goals, which need to exist.  For example, ``simp_all [3]''
wenzelm@19240
   113
simplifies the first three sub-goals, while (rule foo, simp_all)[]
wenzelm@19240
   114
simplifies all new goals that emerge from applying rule foo to the
wenzelm@19240
   115
originally first one.
wenzelm@19220
   116
wenzelm@19814
   117
* Isar: schematic goals are no longer restricted to higher-order
wenzelm@19814
   118
patterns; e.g. ``lemma "?P(?x)" by (rule TrueI)'' now works as
wenzelm@19814
   119
expected.
wenzelm@19814
   120
wenzelm@18901
   121
* Isar: the conclusion of a long theorem statement is now either
wenzelm@18901
   122
'shows' (a simultaneous conjunction, as before), or 'obtains'
wenzelm@18901
   123
(essentially a disjunction of cases with local parameters and
wenzelm@18901
   124
assumptions).  The latter allows to express general elimination rules
wenzelm@18910
   125
adequately; in this notation common elimination rules look like this:
wenzelm@18901
   126
wenzelm@18901
   127
  lemma exE:    -- "EX x. P x ==> (!!x. P x ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
   128
    assumes "EX x. P x"
wenzelm@18901
   129
    obtains x where "P x"
wenzelm@18901
   130
wenzelm@18901
   131
  lemma conjE:  -- "A & B ==> (A ==> B ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
   132
    assumes "A & B"
wenzelm@18901
   133
    obtains A and B
wenzelm@18901
   134
wenzelm@18901
   135
  lemma disjE:  -- "A | B ==> (A ==> thesis) ==> (B ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
   136
    assumes "A | B"
wenzelm@18901
   137
    obtains
wenzelm@18901
   138
      A
wenzelm@18901
   139
    | B
wenzelm@18901
   140
wenzelm@18910
   141
The subsequent classical rules even refer to the formal "thesis"
wenzelm@18901
   142
explicitly:
wenzelm@18901
   143
wenzelm@18901
   144
  lemma classical:     -- "(~ thesis ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
   145
    obtains "~ thesis"
wenzelm@18901
   146
wenzelm@18910
   147
  lemma Peirce's_Law:  -- "((thesis ==> something) ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18910
   148
    obtains "thesis ==> something"
wenzelm@18901
   149
wenzelm@18901
   150
The actual proof of an 'obtains' statement is analogous to that of the
wenzelm@18910
   151
Isar proof element 'obtain', only that there may be several cases.
wenzelm@18910
   152
Optional case names may be specified in parentheses; these will be
wenzelm@18910
   153
available both in the present proof and as annotations in the
wenzelm@18910
   154
resulting rule, for later use with the 'cases' method (cf. attribute
wenzelm@18910
   155
case_names).
wenzelm@18901
   156
wenzelm@19263
   157
* Isar: 'print_statement' prints theorems from the current theory or
wenzelm@19263
   158
proof context in long statement form, according to the syntax of a
wenzelm@19263
   159
top-level lemma.
wenzelm@19263
   160
wenzelm@18901
   161
* Isar: 'obtain' takes an optional case name for the local context
wenzelm@18901
   162
introduction rule (default "that").
wenzelm@18901
   163
wenzelm@19587
   164
* Isar: removed obsolete 'concl is' patterns.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use
wenzelm@19587
   165
explicit (is "_ ==> ?foo") in the rare cases where this still happens
wenzelm@19587
   166
to occur.
wenzelm@19587
   167
wenzelm@19682
   168
* Pure: syntax "CONST name" produces a fully internalized constant
wenzelm@19682
   169
according to the current context.  This is particularly useful for
wenzelm@19682
   170
syntax translations that should refer to internal constant
wenzelm@19682
   171
representations independently of name spaces.
wenzelm@19682
   172
wenzelm@19682
   173
* Isar/locales: 'const_syntax' provides a robust interface to the
wenzelm@19682
   174
'syntax' primitive that also works in a locale context.  Type
wenzelm@19682
   175
declaration and internal syntactic representation of given constants
wenzelm@19682
   176
retrieved from the context.
wenzelm@19682
   177
wenzelm@19665
   178
* Isar/locales: new derived specification elements 'axiomatization',
wenzelm@19665
   179
'definition', 'abbreviation', which support type-inference, admit
wenzelm@19083
   180
object-level specifications (equality, equivalence).  See also the
wenzelm@19083
   181
isar-ref manual.  Examples:
wenzelm@19081
   182
wenzelm@19665
   183
  axiomatization
wenzelm@19665
   184
    eq  (infix "===" 50)
wenzelm@19665
   185
    where eq_refl: "x === x" and eq_subst: "x === y ==> P x ==> P y"
wenzelm@19665
   186
wenzelm@19081
   187
  definition
wenzelm@19081
   188
    "f x y = x + y + 1"
wenzelm@19081
   189
    "g x = f x x"
wenzelm@19081
   190
wenzelm@19363
   191
  abbreviation
wenzelm@19081
   192
    neq  (infix "=!=" 50)
wenzelm@19363
   193
    "x =!= y == ~ (x === y)"
wenzelm@19081
   194
wenzelm@19083
   195
These specifications may be also used in a locale context.  Then the
wenzelm@19083
   196
constants being introduced depend on certain fixed parameters, and the
wenzelm@19083
   197
constant name is qualified by the locale base name.  An internal
wenzelm@19083
   198
abbreviation takes care for convenient input and output, making the
wenzelm@19088
   199
parameters implicit and using the original short name.  See also
wenzelm@19083
   200
HOL/ex/Abstract_NAT.thy for an example of deriving polymorphic
wenzelm@19083
   201
entities from a monomorphic theory.
wenzelm@19083
   202
wenzelm@19083
   203
Presently, abbreviations are only available 'in' a target locale, but
wenzelm@19363
   204
not inherited by general import expressions.  Also note that
wenzelm@19363
   205
'abbreviation' may be used as a type-safe replacement for 'syntax' +
wenzelm@19363
   206
'translations' in common applications.
wenzelm@19084
   207
wenzelm@19682
   208
Concrete syntax is attached to specified constants in internal form,
wenzelm@19682
   209
independently of name spaces.  The parse tree representation is
wenzelm@19682
   210
slightly different -- use 'const_syntax' instead of raw 'syntax', and
wenzelm@19682
   211
'translations' with explicit "CONST" markup to accommodate this.
wenzelm@19665
   212
ballarin@19783
   213
* Isar/locales: improved parameter handling:
ballarin@19783
   214
- use of locales "var" and "struct" no longer necessary;
ballarin@19783
   215
- parameter renamings are no longer required to be injective.
ballarin@19783
   216
  This enables, for example, to define a locale for endomorphisms thus:
ballarin@19783
   217
  locale endom = homom mult mult h.
ballarin@19783
   218
ballarin@19931
   219
* Isar/locales: changed the way locales with predicates are defined.
ballarin@19931
   220
Instead of accumulating the specification, the imported expression is
ballarin@19931
   221
now an interpretation.
ballarin@19931
   222
INCOMPATIBILITY: different normal form of locale expressions.
ballarin@19931
   223
In particular, in interpretations of locales with predicates,
ballarin@19931
   224
goals repesenting already interpreted fragments are not removed
ballarin@19984
   225
automatically.  Use methods `intro_locales' and `unfold_locales'; see below.
ballarin@19984
   226
ballarin@19984
   227
* Isar/locales: new methods `intro_locales' and `unfold_locales' provide
ballarin@19984
   228
backward reasoning on locales predicates.  The methods are aware of
ballarin@19984
   229
interpretations and discharge corresponding goals.  `intro_locales' is
ballarin@19984
   230
less aggressive then `unfold_locales' and does not unfold predicates to
ballarin@19984
   231
assumptions.
ballarin@19931
   232
ballarin@19931
   233
* Isar/locales: the order in which locale fragments are accumulated
ballarin@19931
   234
has changed.  This enables to override declarations from fragments
ballarin@19931
   235
due to interpretations -- for example, unwanted simp rules.
ballarin@19931
   236
wenzelm@18233
   237
* Provers/induct: improved internal context management to support
wenzelm@18233
   238
local fixes and defines on-the-fly.  Thus explicit meta-level
wenzelm@18233
   239
connectives !! and ==> are rarely required anymore in inductive goals
wenzelm@18233
   240
(using object-logic connectives for this purpose has been long
wenzelm@18233
   241
obsolete anyway).  The subsequent proof patterns illustrate advanced
wenzelm@18233
   242
techniques of natural induction; general datatypes and inductive sets
wenzelm@18267
   243
work analogously (see also src/HOL/Lambda for realistic examples).
wenzelm@18267
   244
wenzelm@18267
   245
(1) This is how to ``strengthen'' an inductive goal wrt. certain
wenzelm@18239
   246
parameters:
wenzelm@18233
   247
wenzelm@18233
   248
  lemma
wenzelm@18233
   249
    fixes n :: nat and x :: 'a
wenzelm@18233
   250
    assumes a: "A n x"
wenzelm@18233
   251
    shows "P n x"
wenzelm@18233
   252
    using a                     -- {* make induct insert fact a *}
wenzelm@18233
   253
  proof (induct n fixing: x)    -- {* generalize goal to "!!x. A n x ==> P n x" *}
wenzelm@18248
   254
    case 0
wenzelm@18233
   255
    show ?case sorry
wenzelm@18233
   256
  next
wenzelm@18248
   257
    case (Suc n)
wenzelm@18239
   258
    note `!!x. A n x ==> P n x` -- {* induction hypothesis, according to induction rule *}
wenzelm@18239
   259
    note `A (Suc n) x`          -- {* induction premise, stemming from fact a *}
wenzelm@18233
   260
    show ?case sorry
wenzelm@18233
   261
  qed
wenzelm@18233
   262
wenzelm@18267

Here the 'fixing: thesis' specification essentially modifies the scope

of the formal thesis parameter, in order to the get the whole

   299
existence statement through the induction as expected.

* Provers/induct: mutual induction rules are now specified as a list
wenzelm@18506
   302
of rule sharing the same induction cases.  HOL packages usually
wenzelm@18506
   303
provide foo_bar.inducts for mutually defined items foo and bar
wenzelm@18506
   304
(e.g. inductive sets or datatypes).  INCOMPATIBILITY, users need to
wenzelm@18506
   305
specify mutual induction rules differently, i.e. like this:
wenzelm@18506
   306
wenzelm@18506
   307
  (induct rule: foo_bar.inducts)
wenzelm@18506

The ML function ProjectRule.projections turns old-style rules into the
wenzelm@18506
   312
new format.
wenzelm@18506
   313
wenzelm@18506
   314
* Provers/induct: improved handling of simultaneous goals.  Instead of
wenzelm@18506
   315
introducing object-level conjunction, the statement is now split into
wenzelm@18506
   316
several conclusions, while the corresponding symbolic cases are
wenzelm@18601
   317
nested accordingly.  INCOMPATIBILITY, proofs need to be structured
wenzelm@18601

If simultaneous goals are to be used with mutual rules, the statement
wenzelm@18506
   371
needs to be structured carefully as a two-level conjunction, using
wenzelm@18506
   372
lists of propositions separated by 'and':
wenzelm@18506
   373
wenzelm@18507

          "a : A ==> P2 a"
wenzelm@18507

      and "b : B ==> Q1 b"
wenzelm@18507
   378
          "b : B ==> Q2 b"
wenzelm@18507

          "b : B ==> Q3 b"

* Simplifier: by default the simplifier trace only shows top level rewrites
nipkow@18674
   386
now. That is, trace_simp_depth_limit is set to 1 by default. Thus there is
nipkow@18674
   387
less danger of being flooded by the trace. The trace indicates where parts
nipkow@18674
   388
have been suppressed.
nipkow@18674
   389
  
wenzelm@18536
   390
* Provers/classical: removed obsolete classical version of elim_format
wenzelm@18536
   391
attribute; classical elim/dest rules are now treated uniformly when
wenzelm@18536
   392
manipulating the claset.
wenzelm@18536
   393
wenzelm@18694
   394
* Provers/classical: stricter checks to ensure that supplied intro,
wenzelm@18694

dest and elim rules are well-formed; dest and elim rules must have at
wenzelm@18694
   396
least one premise.
wenzelm@18694
   397
wenzelm@18694
   398
* Provers/classical: attributes dest/elim/intro take an optional
wenzelm@18695
   399
weight argument for the rule (just as the Pure versions).  Weights are
wenzelm@18696
   400
ignored by automated tools, but determine the search order of single

   401
rule steps.

* Syntax: input syntax now supports dummy variable binding "%_. b",
wenzelm@18536
   404
where the body does not mention the bound variable.  Note that dummy
wenzelm@18536
   405
patterns implicitly depend on their context of bounds, which makes
wenzelm@18536
   406
"{_. _}" match any set comprehension as expected.  Potential
wenzelm@18536
   407
INCOMPATIBILITY -- parse translations need to cope with syntactic

constant "_idtdummy" in the binding position.

wenzelm@18536

   418
that may contain free variables. For example 'normal_form "rev[a,b,c]"'
nipkow@19895
   419
prints '[b,c,a]'. This command is suitable for heavy-duty computations
nipkow@19895

because the functions are compiled to ML first.

nipkow@19377
   438
a) User-defined constants using any of the names "plus", "minus", "times",
nipkow@19377
   439
"less" or "less_eq". The standard syntax translations for "+", "-" and "*"
nipkow@19377
   440
may go wrong.
haftmann@19233
   441
INCOMPATIBILITY: use more specific names.
haftmann@19233
   442
haftmann@19277
   443
b) Variables named "plus", "minus", "times", "less", "less_eq"
haftmann@19233
   444
INCOMPATIBILITY: use more specific names.
haftmann@19233

nipkow@19377
   446
c) Permutative equations (e.g. "a + b = b + a")
nipkow@19377
   447
Since the change of names also changes the order of terms, permutative
nipkow@19377
   448
rewrite rules may get applied in a different order. Experience shows that
nipkow@19377
   449
this is rarely the case (only two adaptions in the whole Isabelle
nipkow@19377
   450
distribution).
nipkow@19377
   451
INCOMPATIBILITY: rewrite proofs
haftmann@19233
   452
haftmann@19233
   453
d) ML code directly refering to constant names
haftmann@19233
   454
This in general only affects hand-written proof tactics, simprocs and so on.

wenzelm@18540
   515

sequence. "fold_burrow" has an additional context.
wenzelm@18540

   537
Note that fold_index starts counting at index 0, not 1 like foldln
wenzelm@18446
   538
used to.
wenzelm@18446
   539
wenzelm@19653
   540
* Pure/library: general ``divide_and_conquer'' combinator on lists.
wenzelm@19653
   541
wenzelm@19032
   542
* Pure/General/name_mangler.ML provides a functor for generic name
wenzelm@18446
   543
mangling (bijective mapping from any expression values to strings).
wenzelm@18446
   544
wenzelm@19032
   545
* Pure/General/rat.ML implements rational numbers.
wenzelm@19032
   546
wenzelm@19032
   547
* Pure/General/table.ML: the join operations now works via exceptions
wenzelm@19081
   548
DUP/SAME instead of type option.  This is simpler in simple cases, and
wenzelm@19081
   549
admits slightly more efficient complex applications.
wenzelm@18446
   550
wenzelm@18642
   551
* Pure: datatype Context.generic joins theory/Proof.context and
wenzelm@18644
   552
provides some facilities for code that works in either kind of
wenzelm@18642
   553
context, notably GenericDataFun for uniform theory and proof data.
wenzelm@18642
   554
wenzelm@18862
   555
* Pure: 'advanced' translation functions (parse_translation etc.) now
wenzelm@18862
   556
use Context.generic instead of just theory.
wenzelm@18862
   557
wenzelm@18737
   558
* Pure: simplified internal attribute type, which is now always
wenzelm@18737
   559
Context.generic * thm -> Context.generic * thm.  Global (theory)
wenzelm@18737
   560
vs. local (Proof.context) attributes have been discontinued, while
wenzelm@18738
   561
minimizing code duplication.  Thm.rule_attribute and
wenzelm@18738
   562
Thm.declaration_attribute build canonical attributes; see also
wenzelm@19006
   563
structure Context for further operations on Context.generic, notably
wenzelm@19006
   564
GenericDataFun.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt attribute type
wenzelm@19006
   565
declarations and definitions.
wenzelm@19006
   566
wenzelm@19508
   567
* Pure/kernel: consts certification ignores sort constraints given in
wenzelm@19508
   568
signature declarations.  (This information is not relevant to the
wenzelm@19508
   569
logic, but only for type inference.)  IMPORTANT INTERNAL CHANGE.
wenzelm@19508
   570
wenzelm@19508
   571
* Pure: axiomatic type classes are now purely definitional, with
wenzelm@19508
   572
explicit proofs of class axioms and super class relations performed
wenzelm@19508
   573
internally.  See Pure/axclass.ML for the main internal interfaces --
wenzelm@19508
   574
notably AxClass.define_class supercedes AxClass.add_axclass, and
wenzelm@19508
   575
AxClass.axiomatize_class/classrel/arity supercede
wenzelm@19508
   576
Sign.add_classes/classrel/arities.
wenzelm@19508
   577
wenzelm@19006
   578
* Pure/Isar: Args/Attrib parsers operate on Context.generic --
wenzelm@19006
   579
global/local versions on theory vs. Proof.context have been
wenzelm@19006
   580
discontinued; Attrib.syntax and Method.syntax have been adapted
wenzelm@19006
   581
accordingly.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt parser expressions for
wenzelm@19006
   582
attributes, methods, etc.
wenzelm@18642
   583
wenzelm@18446
   584
* Pure: several functions of signature "... -> theory -> theory * ..."
wenzelm@18446
   585
have been reoriented to "... -> theory -> ... * theory" in order to
wenzelm@18446
   586
allow natural usage in combination with the ||>, ||>>, |-> and
wenzelm@18446
   587
fold_map combinators.
haftmann@18051
   588
wenzelm@18020
   589
* Pure: primitive rule lift_rule now takes goal cterm instead of an
wenzelm@18145
   590
actual goal state (thm).  Use Thm.lift_rule (Thm.cprem_of st i) to
wenzelm@18020
   591
achieve the old behaviour.
wenzelm@18020
   592
wenzelm@18020
   593
* Pure: the "Goal" constant is now called "prop", supporting a
wenzelm@18020
   594
slightly more general idea of ``protecting'' meta-level rule
wenzelm@18020
   595
statements.
wenzelm@18020
   596
wenzelm@20040
   597
* Pure: Logic.(un)varify only works in a global context, which is now
wenzelm@20040
   598
enforced instead of silently assumed.  INCOMPATIBILITY, may use
wenzelm@20040
   599
Logic.legacy_(un)varify as temporary workaround.
wenzelm@20040
   600
wenzelm@20090
   601
* Pure: structure Name provides scalable operations for generating
wenzelm@20090
   602
internal variable names, notably Name.variants etc.  This replaces
wenzelm@20090
   603
some popular functions from term.ML:
wenzelm@20090
   604
wenzelm@20090
   605
  Term.variant		->  Name.variant
wenzelm@20090
   606
  Term.variantlist	->  Name.variant_list  (*canonical argument order*)
wenzelm@20090
   607
  Term.invent_names	->  Name.invent_list
wenzelm@20090
   608
wenzelm@20090
   609
Note that low-level renaming rarely occurs in new code -- operations
wenzelm@20090
   610
from structure Variable are used instead (see below).
wenzelm@20090
   611
wenzelm@20040
   612
* Pure: structure Variable provides fundamental operations for proper
wenzelm@20040
   613
treatment of fixed/schematic variables in a context.  For example,
wenzelm@20040
   614
Variable.import introduces fixes for schematics of given facts and
wenzelm@20040
   615
Variable.export reverses the effect (up to renaming) -- this replaces
wenzelm@20040
   616
various freeze_thaw operations.
wenzelm@20040
   617
wenzelm@18567
   618
* Pure: structure Goal provides simple interfaces for
wenzelm@17981
   619
init/conclude/finish and tactical prove operations (replacing former
wenzelm@20040
   620
Tactic.prove).  Goal.prove is the canonical way to prove results
wenzelm@20040
   621
within a given context; Goal.prove_global is a degraded version for
wenzelm@20040
   622
theory level goals, including a global Drule.standard.  Note that
wenzelm@20040
   623
OldGoals.prove_goalw_cterm has long been obsolete, since it is
wenzelm@20040
   624
ill-behaved in a local proof context (e.g. with local fixes/assumes or
wenzelm@20040
   625
in a locale context).
wenzelm@17981
   626
wenzelm@18815
   627
* Isar: simplified treatment of user-level errors, using exception
wenzelm@18687
   628
ERROR of string uniformly.  Function error now merely raises ERROR,
wenzelm@18686
   629
without any side effect on output channels.  The Isar toplevel takes
wenzelm@18686
   630
care of proper display of ERROR exceptions.  ML code may use plain
wenzelm@18686
   631
handle/can/try; cat_error may be used to concatenate errors like this:
wenzelm@18686
   632
wenzelm@18686
   633
  ... handle ERROR msg => cat_error msg "..."
wenzelm@18686
   634
wenzelm@18686
   635
Toplevel ML code (run directly or through the Isar toplevel) may be
wenzelm@18687
   636
embedded into the Isar toplevel with exception display/debug like
wenzelm@18687
   637
this:
wenzelm@18686
   638
wenzelm@18686
   639
  Isar.toplevel (fn () => ...)
wenzelm@18686
   640
wenzelm@18686
   641
INCOMPATIBILITY, removed special transform_error facilities, removed
wenzelm@18686
   642
obsolete variants of user-level exceptions (ERROR_MESSAGE,
wenzelm@18686
   643
Context.PROOF, ProofContext.CONTEXT, Proof.STATE, ProofHistory.FAIL)
wenzelm@18686
   644
-- use plain ERROR instead.
wenzelm@18686
   645
wenzelm@18815
   646
* Isar: theory setup now has type (theory -> theory), instead of a
wenzelm@18722
   647
list.  INCOMPATIBILITY, may use #> to compose setup functions.
wenzelm@18722
   648
wenzelm@18815
   649
* Isar: installed ML toplevel pretty printer for type Proof.context,
wenzelm@18815
   650
subject to ProofContext.debug/verbose flags.
wenzelm@18815
   651
wenzelm@18815
   652
* Isar: Toplevel.theory_to_proof admits transactions that modify the
wenzelm@18815
   653
theory before entering a proof state.  Transactions now always see a
wenzelm@18815
   654
quasi-functional intermediate checkpoint, both in interactive and
wenzelm@18590
   655
batch mode.
wenzelm@18567
   656
wenzelm@17878
   657
* Simplifier: the simpset of a running simplification process now
wenzelm@17878
   658
contains a proof context (cf. Simplifier.the_context), which is the
wenzelm@17878
   659
very context that the initial simpset has been retrieved from (by
wenzelm@17890
   660
simpset_of/local_simpset_of).  Consequently, all plug-in components
wenzelm@17878
   661
(solver, looper etc.) may depend on arbitrary proof data.
wenzelm@17878
   662
wenzelm@17878
   663
* Simplifier.inherit_context inherits the proof context (plus the
wenzelm@17878
   664
local bounds) of the current simplification process; any simproc
wenzelm@17878
   665
etc. that calls the Simplifier recursively should do this!  Removed
wenzelm@17878
   666
former Simplifier.inherit_bounds, which is already included here --
wenzelm@17890
   667
INCOMPATIBILITY.  Tools based on low-level rewriting may even have to
wenzelm@17890
   668
specify an explicit context using Simplifier.context/theory_context.
wenzelm@17878
   669
wenzelm@17878
   670
* Simplifier/Classical Reasoner: more abstract interfaces
wenzelm@17878
   671
change_simpset/claset for modifying the simpset/claset reference of a
wenzelm@17878
   672
theory; raw versions simpset/claset_ref etc. have been discontinued --
wenzelm@17878
   673
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17878
   674
wenzelm@18540
   675
* Provers: more generic wrt. syntax of object-logics, avoid hardwired
wenzelm@18540
   676
"Trueprop" etc.
wenzelm@18540
   677
wenzelm@17878

*** General ***
wenzelm@14655
   684
nipkow@15130
   685
* Theory headers: the new header syntax for Isar theories is
nipkow@15130
   686
nipkow@15130
   687
  theory <name>
wenzelm@16234
   688
  imports <theory1> ... <theoryN>
wenzelm@16234
   689
  uses <file1> ... <fileM>
nipkow@15130
   690
  begin
nipkow@15130
   691
wenzelm@16234
   692
where the 'uses' part is optional.  The previous syntax
wenzelm@16234
   693
wenzelm@16234
   694
  theory <name> = <theory1> + ... + <theoryN>:
wenzelm@16234
   695
wenzelm@16717
   696
will disappear in the next release.  Use isatool fixheaders to convert
wenzelm@16717
   697
existing theory files.  Note that there is no change in ancient
wenzelm@17371
   698
non-Isar theories now, but these will disappear soon.
nipkow@15130
   699
berghofe@15475
   700
* Theory loader: parent theories can now also be referred to via
wenzelm@16234
   701
relative and absolute paths.
wenzelm@16234
   702
wenzelm@17408
   703
* Command 'find_theorems' searches for a list of criteria instead of a
wenzelm@17408
   704
list of constants. Known criteria are: intro, elim, dest, name:string,
wenzelm@17408
   705
simp:term, and any term. Criteria can be preceded by '-' to select
wenzelm@17408
   706
theorems that do not match. Intro, elim, dest select theorems that
wenzelm@17408
   707
match the current goal, name:s selects theorems whose fully qualified
wenzelm@17408
   708
name contain s, and simp:term selects all simplification rules whose
wenzelm@17408
   709
lhs match term.  Any other term is interpreted as pattern and selects
wenzelm@17408
   710
all theorems matching the pattern. Available in ProofGeneral under
wenzelm@17408
   711
'ProofGeneral -> Find Theorems' or C-c C-f.  Example:
wenzelm@16234
   712
wenzelm@17275
   713
  C-c C-f (100) "(_::nat) + _ + _" intro -name: "HOL."
wenzelm@16234
   714
wenzelm@16234
   715
prints the last 100 theorems matching the pattern "(_::nat) + _ + _",
wenzelm@16234
   716
matching the current goal as introduction rule and not having "HOL."
wenzelm@16234
   717
in their name (i.e. not being defined in theory HOL).
wenzelm@16013
   718
wenzelm@17408
   719
* Command 'thms_containing' has been discontinued in favour of
wenzelm@17408
   720
'find_theorems'; INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17408
   721
wenzelm@17385
   722
* Communication with Proof General is now 8bit clean, which means that
wenzelm@17385
   723
Unicode text in UTF-8 encoding may be used within theory texts (both
wenzelm@17408
   724
formal and informal parts).  Cf. option -U of the Isabelle Proof
wenzelm@17538
   725
General interface.  Here are some simple examples (cf. src/HOL/ex):

wenzelm@17425
   730
* Improved efficiency of the Simplifier and, to a lesser degree, the
wenzelm@17425
   731
Classical Reasoner.  Typical big applications run around 2 times
wenzelm@17425
   732

*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@15703
   736
wenzelm@16234
   737
* Commands 'display_drafts' and 'print_drafts' perform simple output
wenzelm@16234
   738
of raw sources.  Only those symbols that do not require additional
wenzelm@16234
   739
LaTeX packages (depending on comments in isabellesym.sty) are
wenzelm@16234
   740
displayed properly, everything else is left verbatim.  isatool display
wenzelm@16234
   741
and isatool print are used as front ends (these are subject to the
wenzelm@16234
   742
DVI/PDF_VIEWER and PRINT_COMMAND settings, respectively).
wenzelm@16234
   743
wenzelm@17047
   744
* Command tags control specific markup of certain regions of text,
wenzelm@17047
   745
notably folding and hiding.  Predefined tags include "theory" (for
wenzelm@17047
   746
theory begin and end), "proof" for proof commands, and "ML" for
wenzelm@17047
   747
commands involving ML code; the additional tags "visible" and
wenzelm@17047
   748
"invisible" are unused by default.  Users may give explicit tag
wenzelm@17047
   749
specifications in the text, e.g. ''by %invisible (auto)''.  The
wenzelm@17047
   750
interpretation of tags is determined by the LaTeX job during document
wenzelm@17047
   751
preparation: see option -V of isatool usedir, or options -n and -t of
wenzelm@17047
   752
isatool document, or even the LaTeX macros \isakeeptag, \isafoldtag,
wenzelm@17047
   753
\isadroptag.
wenzelm@17047
   754
wenzelm@17047
   755
Several document versions may be produced at the same time via isatool
wenzelm@17047
   756
usedir (the generated index.html will link all of them).  Typical
wenzelm@17047
   757
specifications include ''-V document=theory,proof,ML'' to present
wenzelm@17047
   758
theory/proof/ML parts faithfully, ''-V outline=/proof,/ML'' to fold
wenzelm@17047
   759
proof and ML commands, and ''-V mutilated=-theory,-proof,-ML'' to omit
wenzelm@17047
   760
these parts without any formal replacement text.  The Isabelle site
wenzelm@17047
   761
default settings produce ''document'' and ''outline'' versions as
wenzelm@17047
   762
specified above.
wenzelm@16234
   763
haftmann@17402
   764
* Several new antiquotations:
wenzelm@15979
   765
wenzelm@15979
   766
  @{term_type term} prints a term with its type annotated;
wenzelm@15979
   767
wenzelm@15979
   768
  @{typeof term} prints the type of a term;
wenzelm@15979
   769
wenzelm@16234
   770
  @{const const} is the same as @{term const}, but checks that the
wenzelm@16234
   771
  argument is a known logical constant;
wenzelm@15979
   772
wenzelm@15979
   773
  @{term_style style term} and @{thm_style style thm} print a term or
wenzelm@16234
   774
  theorem applying a "style" to it
wenzelm@16234
   775
wenzelm@17117
   776
  @{ML text}
wenzelm@17117
   777
wenzelm@16234
   778
Predefined styles are 'lhs' and 'rhs' printing the lhs/rhs of
wenzelm@16234
   779
definitions, equations, inequations etc., 'concl' printing only the
schirmer@17393
   780
conclusion of a meta-logical statement theorem, and 'prem1' .. 'prem19'
wenzelm@16234
   781
to print the specified premise.  TermStyle.add_style provides an ML
wenzelm@16234
   782
interface for introducing further styles.  See also the "LaTeX Sugar"
wenzelm@17117
   783
document practical applications.  The ML antiquotation prints
wenzelm@17117
   784
type-checked ML expressions verbatim.
wenzelm@16234
   785
wenzelm@17259
   786
* Markup commands 'chapter', 'section', 'subsection', 'subsubsection',
wenzelm@17259
   787
and 'text' support optional locale specification '(in loc)', which
wenzelm@17269
   788
specifies the default context for interpreting antiquotations.  For
wenzelm@17269
   789
example: 'text (in lattice) {* @{thm inf_assoc}*}'.
wenzelm@17259
   790
wenzelm@17259
   791
* Option 'locale=NAME' of antiquotations specifies an alternative
wenzelm@17259
   792
context interpreting the subsequent argument.  For example: @{thm
wenzelm@17269
   793
[locale=lattice] inf_assoc}.
wenzelm@17259
   794
wenzelm@17097
   795
* Proper output of proof terms (@{prf ...} and @{full_prf ...}) within
wenzelm@17097
   796
a proof context.
wenzelm@17097
   797
wenzelm@17097
   798
* Proper output of antiquotations for theory commands involving a
wenzelm@17097
   799
proof context (such as 'locale' or 'theorem (in loc) ...').
wenzelm@17097
   800
wenzelm@17193
   801
* Delimiters of outer tokens (string etc.) now produce separate LaTeX
wenzelm@17193
   802
macros (\isachardoublequoteopen, isachardoublequoteclose etc.).
wenzelm@17193
   803
wenzelm@17193

wenzelm@17193

* Considerably improved version of 'constdefs' command.  Now performs
wenzelm@16234
   812
automatic type-inference of declared constants; additional support for
wenzelm@16234
   813
local structure declarations (cf. locales and HOL records), see also
wenzelm@16234
   814
isar-ref manual.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY: need to observe strictly
wenzelm@16234
   815
sequential dependencies of definitions within a single 'constdefs'
wenzelm@16234
   816
section; moreover, the declared name needs to be an identifier.  If
wenzelm@16234
   817
all fails, consider to fall back on 'consts' and 'defs' separately.
wenzelm@16234
   818
wenzelm@16234
   819
* Improved indexed syntax and implicit structures.  First of all,
wenzelm@16234
   820
indexed syntax provides a notational device for subscripted
wenzelm@16234
   821
application, using the new syntax \<^bsub>term\<^esub> for arbitrary
wenzelm@16234
   822
expressions.  Secondly, in a local context with structure
wenzelm@16234
   823
declarations, number indexes \<^sub>n or the empty index (default
wenzelm@16234
   824
number 1) refer to a certain fixed variable implicitly; option
wenzelm@16234
   825
show_structs controls printing of implicit structures.  Typical
wenzelm@16234
   826
applications of these concepts involve record types and locales.
wenzelm@16234
   827
wenzelm@16234
   828
* New command 'no_syntax' removes grammar declarations (and
wenzelm@16234
   829
translations) resulting from the given syntax specification, which is
wenzelm@16234
   830
interpreted in the same manner as for the 'syntax' command.
wenzelm@16234
   831
wenzelm@16234
   832
* 'Advanced' translation functions (parse_translation etc.) may depend
wenzelm@16234
   833
on the signature of the theory context being presently used for
wenzelm@16234
   834
parsing/printing, see also isar-ref manual.
wenzelm@16234
   835
wenzelm@16856
   836
* Improved 'oracle' command provides a type-safe interface to turn an
wenzelm@16856
   837
ML expression of type theory -> T -> term into a primitive rule of
wenzelm@16856
   838
type theory -> T -> thm (i.e. the functionality of Thm.invoke_oracle
wenzelm@16856
   839
is already included here); see also FOL/ex/IffExample.thy;
wenzelm@16856
   840
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@16856
   841
wenzelm@17275
   842
* axclass: name space prefix for class "c" is now "c_class" (was "c"
wenzelm@17275
   843
before); "cI" is no longer bound, use "c.intro" instead.
wenzelm@17275
   844
INCOMPATIBILITY.  This change avoids clashes of fact bindings for
wenzelm@17275
   845
axclasses vs. locales.
wenzelm@17275
   846
wenzelm@16234
   847
* Improved internal renaming of symbolic identifiers -- attach primes
wenzelm@16234
   848
instead of base 26 numbers.
wenzelm@16234
   849
wenzelm@16234
   850
* New flag show_question_marks controls printing of leading question
wenzelm@16234
   851
marks in schematic variable names.
wenzelm@16234
   852
wenzelm@16234
   853
* In schematic variable names, *any* symbol following \<^isub> or
wenzelm@16234
   854
\<^isup> is now treated as part of the base name.  For example, the
wenzelm@16234
   855
following works without printing of awkward ".0" indexes:
wenzelm@16234
   856
wenzelm@16234
   857
  lemma "x\<^isub>1 = x\<^isub>2 ==> x\<^isub>2 = x\<^isub>1"
wenzelm@16234
   858
    by simp
wenzelm@16234
   859
wenzelm@16234
   860
* Inner syntax includes (*(*nested*) comments*).
wenzelm@16234
   861
wenzelm@17548
   862
* Pretty printer now supports unbreakable blocks, specified in mixfix
wenzelm@16234
   863
annotations as "(00...)".
wenzelm@16234
   864
wenzelm@16234
   865
* Clear separation of logical types and nonterminals, where the latter
wenzelm@16234
   866
may only occur in 'syntax' specifications or type abbreviations.
wenzelm@16234
   867
Before that distinction was only partially implemented via type class
wenzelm@16234
   868
"logic" vs. "{}".  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY in rare cases of improper
wenzelm@16234
   869
use of 'types'/'consts' instead of 'nonterminals'/'syntax'.  Some very
wenzelm@16234
   870
exotic syntax specifications may require further adaption
wenzelm@17691
   871
(e.g. Cube/Cube.thy).
wenzelm@16234
   872
wenzelm@16234
   873
* Removed obsolete type class "logic", use the top sort {} instead.
wenzelm@16234
   874
Note that non-logical types should be declared as 'nonterminals'
wenzelm@16234
   875
rather than 'types'.  INCOMPATIBILITY for new object-logic
wenzelm@16234
   876
specifications.
wenzelm@16234
   877
ballarin@17095
   878
* Attributes 'induct' and 'cases': type or set names may now be
ballarin@17095
   879
locally fixed variables as well.
ballarin@17095
   880
wenzelm@16234
   881
* Simplifier: can now control the depth to which conditional rewriting
wenzelm@16234
   882
is traced via the PG menu Isabelle -> Settings -> Trace Simp Depth
wenzelm@16234
   883
Limit.
wenzelm@16234
   884
wenzelm@16234
   885
* Simplifier: simplification procedures may now take the current
wenzelm@16234
   886
simpset into account (cf. Simplifier.simproc(_i) / mk_simproc
wenzelm@16234
   887
interface), which is very useful for calling the Simplifier
wenzelm@16234
   888
recursively.  Minor INCOMPATIBILITY: the 'prems' argument of simprocs
wenzelm@16234
   889
is gone -- use prems_of_ss on the simpset instead.  Moreover, the
wenzelm@16234
   890
low-level mk_simproc no longer applies Logic.varify internally, to
wenzelm@16234
   891
allow for use in a context of fixed variables.
wenzelm@16234
   892
wenzelm@16234
   893
* thin_tac now works even if the assumption being deleted contains !!
wenzelm@16234
   894
or ==>.  More generally, erule now works even if the major premise of
wenzelm@16234
   895
the elimination rule contains !! or ==>.
wenzelm@16234
   896
wenzelm@17597

* Method 'rules' has been renamed to 'iprover'. INCOMPATIBILITY.
nipkow@17590
   898
wenzelm@16234
   899
* Reorganized bootstrapping of the Pure theories; CPure is now derived
wenzelm@16234
   900
from Pure, which contains all common declarations already.  Both
wenzelm@16234
   901
theories are defined via plain Isabelle/Isar .thy files.
wenzelm@16234
   902
INCOMPATIBILITY: elements of CPure (such as the CPure.intro /
wenzelm@16234
   903
CPure.elim / CPure.dest attributes) now appear in the Pure name space;
wenzelm@16234
   904
use isatool fixcpure to adapt your theory and ML sources.
wenzelm@16234
   905
wenzelm@16234
   906
* New syntax 'name(i-j, i-, i, ...)' for referring to specific
wenzelm@16234
   907
selections of theorems in named facts via index ranges.
wenzelm@16234
   908
wenzelm@17097
   909
* 'print_theorems': in theory mode, really print the difference
wenzelm@17097
   910
wrt. the last state (works for interactive theory development only),
wenzelm@17097
   911
in proof mode print all local facts (cf. 'print_facts');
wenzelm@17097
   912
wenzelm@17397
   913
* 'hide': option '(open)' hides only base names.
wenzelm@17397
   914
wenzelm@17275
   915
* More efficient treatment of intermediate checkpoints in interactive
wenzelm@17275
   916
theory development.
wenzelm@17275
   917
berghofe@17663
   918
* Code generator is now invoked via code_module (incremental code
wenzelm@17664
   919
generation) and code_library (modular code generation, ML structures
wenzelm@17664
   920
for each theory).  INCOMPATIBILITY: new keywords 'file' and 'contains'
wenzelm@17664
   921
must be quoted when used as identifiers.
wenzelm@17664
   922
wenzelm@17664
   923
* New 'value' command for reading, evaluating and printing terms using
wenzelm@17664
   924
the code generator.  INCOMPATIBILITY: command keyword 'value' must be
wenzelm@17664
   925
quoted when used as identifier.

*** Locales ***
ballarin@17095
   929
wenzelm@17385
   930
* New commands for the interpretation of locale expressions in
wenzelm@17385
   931
theories (1), locales (2) and proof contexts (3).  These generate
wenzelm@17385
   932
proof obligations from the expression specification.  After the
wenzelm@17385
   933
obligations have been discharged, theorems of the expression are added
wenzelm@17385
   934
to the theory, target locale or proof context.  The synopsis of the
wenzelm@17385
   935
commands is a follows:
wenzelm@17385
   936
ballarin@17095
   937
  (1) interpretation expr inst
ballarin@17095
   938
  (2) interpretation target < expr
ballarin@17095
   939
  (3) interpret expr inst
wenzelm@17385
   940
ballarin@17095
   941
Interpretation in theories and proof contexts require a parameter
ballarin@17095
   942
instantiation of terms from the current context.  This is applied to
wenzelm@17385
   943
specifications and theorems of the interpreted expression.
wenzelm@17385
   944
Interpretation in locales only permits parameter renaming through the
wenzelm@17385
   945
locale expression.  Interpretation is smart in that interpretations
wenzelm@17385
   946
that are active already do not occur in proof obligations, neither are
wenzelm@17385
   947
instantiated theorems stored in duplicate.  Use 'print_interps' to
wenzelm@17385
   948
inspect active interpretations of a particular locale.  For details,
ballarin@17436
   949
see the Isar Reference manual.  Examples can be found in
ballarin@17436
   950
HOL/Finite_Set.thy and HOL/Algebra/UnivPoly.thy.
wenzelm@16234
   951
wenzelm@16234
   952
INCOMPATIBILITY: former 'instantiate' has been withdrawn, use
wenzelm@16234
   953
'interpret' instead.
wenzelm@16234
   954
wenzelm@17385
   955
* New context element 'constrains' for adding type constraints to
wenzelm@17385
   956
parameters.
wenzelm@17385
   957
wenzelm@17385
   958
* Context expressions: renaming of parameters with syntax
wenzelm@17385
   959
redeclaration.
ballarin@17095
   960
ballarin@17095
   961
* Locale declaration: 'includes' disallowed.
ballarin@17095
   962
wenzelm@16234
   963
* Proper static binding of attribute syntax -- i.e. types / terms /
wenzelm@16234
   964
facts mentioned as arguments are always those of the locale definition
wenzelm@16234
   965
context, independently of the context of later invocations.  Moreover,
wenzelm@16234
   966
locale operations (renaming and type / term instantiation) are applied
wenzelm@16234
   967
to attribute arguments as expected.
wenzelm@16234
   968
wenzelm@16234
   969
INCOMPATIBILITY of the ML interface: always pass Attrib.src instead of
wenzelm@16234
   970
actual attributes; rare situations may require Attrib.attribute to
wenzelm@16234
   971
embed those attributes into Attrib.src that lack concrete syntax.
wenzelm@16234
   972
Attribute implementations need to cooperate properly with the static
wenzelm@16234
   973
binding mechanism.  Basic parsers Args.XXX_typ/term/prop and
wenzelm@16234
   974
Attrib.XXX_thm etc. already do the right thing without further
wenzelm@16234
   975
intervention.  Only unusual applications -- such as "where" or "of"
wenzelm@16234
   976
(cf. src/Pure/Isar/attrib.ML), which process arguments depending both
wenzelm@16234
   977
on the context and the facts involved -- may have to assign parsed
wenzelm@16234
   978
values to argument tokens explicitly.
wenzelm@16234
   979
wenzelm@16234
   980
* Changed parameter management in theorem generation for long goal
wenzelm@16234
   981
statements with 'includes'.  INCOMPATIBILITY: produces a different
wenzelm@16234
   982
theorem statement in rare situations.
wenzelm@16234
   983
ballarin@17228
   984
* Locale inspection command 'print_locale' omits notes elements.  Use
ballarin@17228
   985
'print_locale!' to have them included in the output.

* Provers/hypsubst.ML: improved version of the subst method, for
wenzelm@16234
   991
single-step rewriting: it now works in bound variable contexts. New is
wenzelm@16234
   992
'subst (asm)', for rewriting an assumption.  INCOMPATIBILITY: may
wenzelm@16234
   993
rewrite a different subterm than the original subst method, which is
wenzelm@16234
   994
still available as 'simplesubst'.
wenzelm@16234

   997
and quasi orders.

reflexive-transitive closure of relations.
wenzelm@16234
  1001
wenzelm@16234

wenzelm@16234
  1004
wenzelm@16234
  1005
* Provers/simplifier.ML has been moved to Pure, where Simplifier.setup

wenzelm@16234
  1019
Moreover, the mathematically important symbolic identifier \<epsilon>

  1023
Similarly for all quantifiers: "ALL x > y" etc.  The x-symbol for >=
wenzelm@17371
  1024
is \<ge>. New transitivity rules have been added to HOL/Orderings.thy to
avigad@17016
  1025
support corresponding Isar calculations.
wenzelm@16234

  1038
wenzelm@16234
  1039
The old syntax is still supported but will disappear in the next
wenzelm@16234
  1040
release.  For conversion use the following Emacs search and replace
wenzelm@16234
  1041
patterns (these are not perfect but work quite well):

* Theory Finite_Set: changed the syntax for 'setsum', summation over
wenzelm@16234
  1051
finite sets: "setsum (%x. e) A", which used to be "\<Sum>x:A. e", is
wenzelm@17371
  1052
now either "SUM x:A. e" or "\<Sum>x \<in> A. e". The bound variable can
paulson@17189

be a tuple pattern.
wenzelm@16234

wenzelm@16234
  1061
wenzelm@16234

* New tactics 'sat' and 'satx' to prove propositional tautologies.
webertj@17700
  1074

* Datatype induction via method 'induct' now preserves the name of the
wenzelm@16234
  1078
induction variable. For example, when proving P(xs::'a list) by
wenzelm@16234
  1079
induction on xs, the induction step is now P(xs) ==> P(a#xs) rather
wenzelm@16234
  1080
than P(list) ==> P(a#list) as previously.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY
wenzelm@16234
  1081
in unstructured proof scripts.
wenzelm@16234
  1082
wenzelm@16234
  1083
* Reworked implementation of records.  Improved scalability for
wenzelm@16234
  1084
records with many fields, avoiding performance problems for type
wenzelm@16234
  1085
inference. Records are no longer composed of nested field types, but
wenzelm@16234
  1086
of nested extension types. Therefore the record type only grows linear
wenzelm@16234
  1087
in the number of extensions and not in the number of fields.  The
wenzelm@16234
  1088
top-level (users) view on records is preserved.  Potential
wenzelm@16234
  1089
INCOMPATIBILITY only in strange cases, where the theory depends on the
wenzelm@16234
  1090
old record representation. The type generated for a record is called
wenzelm@16234
  1091
<record_name>_ext_type.
wenzelm@16234
  1092
wenzelm@16234
  1093
Flag record_quick_and_dirty_sensitive can be enabled to skip the
wenzelm@16234
  1094
proofs triggered by a record definition or a simproc (if
wenzelm@16234
  1095
quick_and_dirty is enabled).  Definitions of large records can take
wenzelm@16234
  1096
quite long.
wenzelm@16234
  1097
wenzelm@16234
  1098
New simproc record_upd_simproc for simplification of multiple record
wenzelm@16234
  1099
updates enabled by default.  Moreover, trivial updates are also
wenzelm@16234
  1100
removed: r(|x := x r|) = r.  INCOMPATIBILITY: old proofs break
wenzelm@16234
  1101
occasionally, since simplification is more powerful by default.
wenzelm@16234
  1102
wenzelm@17275

  1106
* Simplifier: automatically reasons about transitivity chains
wenzelm@16234
  1107
involving "trancl" (r^+) and "rtrancl" (r^*) by setting up tactics
wenzelm@16234
  1108
provided by Provers/trancl.ML as additional solvers.  INCOMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@16234
  1109
old proofs break occasionally as simplification may now solve more
wenzelm@16234
  1110
goals than previously.
wenzelm@16234
  1111
wenzelm@16234
  1112
* Simplifier: converts x <= y into x = y if assumption y <= x is
wenzelm@16234
  1113
present.  Works for all partial orders (class "order"), in particular
wenzelm@16234
  1114
numbers and sets.  For linear orders (e.g. numbers) it treats ~ x < y
wenzelm@16234
  1115
just like y <= x.
wenzelm@16234
  1116
wenzelm@16234
  1117
* Simplifier: new simproc for "let x = a in f x".  If a is a free or
wenzelm@16234
  1118
bound variable or a constant then the let is unfolded.  Otherwise
wenzelm@16234
  1119
first a is simplified to b, and then f b is simplified to g. If
wenzelm@16234
  1120
possible we abstract b from g arriving at "let x = b in h x",
wenzelm@16234
  1121
otherwise we unfold the let and arrive at g.  The simproc can be
wenzelm@16234
  1122
enabled/disabled by the reference use_let_simproc.  Potential
wenzelm@16234
  1123
INCOMPATIBILITY since simplification is more powerful by default.

* Hyperreal: new method "transfer" that implements the transfer
huffman@17442
  1329
principle of nonstandard analysis. With a subgoal that mentions
huffman@17442
  1330
nonstandard types like "'a star", the command "apply transfer"
huffman@17442
  1331
replaces it with an equivalent one that mentions only standard types.
huffman@17442
  1332
To be successful, all free variables must have standard types; non-

  1339
wenzelm@17533
  1340
* Discontinued special version of 'constdefs' (which used to support
wenzelm@17533
  1341
continuous functions) in favor of the general Pure one with full
wenzelm@17533
  1342
type-inference.
wenzelm@17533
  1343
wenzelm@17533
  1344
* New simplification procedure for solving continuity conditions; it
wenzelm@17533
  1345
is much faster on terms with many nested lambda abstractions (cubic
huffman@17442
  1346
instead of exponential time).
huffman@17442
  1347
wenzelm@17533
  1348
* New syntax for domain package: selector names are now optional.
huffman@17442
  1349
Parentheses should be omitted unless argument is lazy, for example:
huffman@17442
  1350
huffman@17442
  1351
  domain 'a stream = cons "'a" (lazy "'a stream")
huffman@17442
  1352
wenzelm@17533
  1353
* New command 'fixrec' for defining recursive functions with pattern
wenzelm@17533
  1354
matching; defining multiple functions with mutual recursion is also
wenzelm@17533
  1355
supported.  Patterns may include the constants cpair, spair, up, sinl,
wenzelm@17533
  1356
sinr, or any data constructor defined by the domain package. The given
wenzelm@17533
  1357
equations are proven as rewrite rules. See HOLCF/ex/Fixrec_ex.thy for
wenzelm@17533
  1358
syntax and examples.
wenzelm@17533

wenzelm@17533
  1360
* New commands 'cpodef' and 'pcpodef' for defining predicate subtypes
wenzelm@17533
  1361
of cpo and pcpo types. Syntax is exactly like the 'typedef' command,
wenzelm@17533
  1362
but the proof obligation additionally includes an admissibility
wenzelm@17533
  1363
requirement. The packages generate instances of class cpo or pcpo,
wenzelm@17533
  1364
with continuity and strictness theorems for Rep and Abs.

*** ML ***
wenzelm@15703
  1395
wenzelm@15973
  1396
* Pure/library.ML no longer defines its own option datatype, but uses
wenzelm@16234
  1397
that of the SML basis, which has constructors NONE and SOME instead of
wenzelm@16234
  1398
None and Some, as well as exception Option.Option instead of OPTION.
wenzelm@16234
  1399
The functions the, if_none, is_some, is_none have been adapted
wenzelm@16234
  1400
accordingly, while Option.map replaces apsome.
wenzelm@15973
  1401
wenzelm@16860
  1402
* Pure/library.ML: the exception LIST has been given up in favour of
wenzelm@16860
  1403
the standard exceptions Empty and Subscript, as well as
wenzelm@16860
  1404
Library.UnequalLengths.  Function like Library.hd and Library.tl are
wenzelm@16860
  1405
superceded by the standard hd and tl functions etc.
wenzelm@16860
  1406
wenzelm@16860
  1407
A number of basic list functions are no longer exported to the ML
wenzelm@16860
  1408
toplevel, as they are variants of predefined functions.  The following
wenzelm@16234
  1409
suggests how one can translate existing code:
wenzelm@15973
  1410
wenzelm@15973
  1411
    rev_append xs ys = List.revAppend (xs, ys)
wenzelm@15973
  1412
    nth_elem (i, xs) = List.nth (xs, i)
wenzelm@15973
  1413
    last_elem xs = List.last xs
wenzelm@15973
  1414
    flat xss = List.concat xss
wenzelm@16234
  1415
    seq fs = List.app fs
wenzelm@15973
  1416
    partition P xs = List.partition P xs
wenzelm@15973
  1417
    mapfilter f xs = List.mapPartial f xs
wenzelm@15973
  1418
wenzelm@16860
  1419
* Pure/library.ML: several combinators for linear functional
wenzelm@16860
  1420
transformations, notably reverse application and composition:
wenzelm@16860
  1421
wenzelm@17371
  1422
  x |> f                f #> g
wenzelm@17371
  1423
  (x, y) |-> f          f #-> g
wenzelm@16860
  1424
haftmann@17495
  1425
* Pure/library.ML: introduced/changed precedence of infix operators:
haftmann@17495
  1426
haftmann@17495
  1427
  infix 1 |> |-> ||> ||>> |>> |>>> #> #->;
haftmann@17495
  1428
  infix 2 ?;
haftmann@17495
  1429
  infix 3 o oo ooo oooo;
haftmann@17495
  1430
  infix 4 ~~ upto downto;
haftmann@17495
  1431
haftmann@17495
  1432
Maybe INCOMPATIBILITY when any of those is used in conjunction with other
haftmann@17495
  1433
infix operators.
haftmann@17495
  1434
wenzelm@17408
  1435
* Pure/library.ML: natural list combinators fold, fold_rev, and
haftmann@16869
  1436
fold_map support linear functional transformations and nesting.  For
wenzelm@16860
  1437
example:
wenzelm@16860
  1438
wenzelm@16860
  1439
  fold f [x1, ..., xN] y =
wenzelm@16860
  1440
    y |> f x1 |> ... |> f xN
wenzelm@16860
  1441
wenzelm@16860
  1442
  (fold o fold) f [xs1, ..., xsN] y =
wenzelm@16860
  1443
    y |> fold f xs1 |> ... |> fold f xsN
wenzelm@16860
  1444
wenzelm@16860
  1445
  fold f [x1, ..., xN] =
wenzelm@16860
  1446
    f x1 #> ... #> f xN
wenzelm@16860
  1447
wenzelm@16860
  1448
  (fold o fold) f [xs1, ..., xsN] =
wenzelm@16860
  1449
    fold f xs1 #> ... #> fold f xsN
wenzelm@16860
  1450
wenzelm@17408
  1451
* Pure/library.ML: the following selectors on type 'a option are
wenzelm@17408
  1452
available:
wenzelm@17408
  1453
wenzelm@17408
  1454
  the:               'a option -> 'a  (*partial*)
wenzelm@17408
  1455
  these:             'a option -> 'a  where 'a = 'b list
haftmann@17402
  1456
  the_default: 'a -> 'a option -> 'a
haftmann@17402
  1457
  the_list:          'a option -> 'a list
haftmann@17402
  1458
wenzelm@17408
  1459
* Pure/General: structure AList (cf. Pure/General/alist.ML) provides
wenzelm@17408
  1460
basic operations for association lists, following natural argument
haftmann@17564
  1461
order; moreover the explicit equality predicate passed here avoids
haftmann@17495
  1462
potentially expensive polymorphic runtime equality checks.
haftmann@17495
  1463
The old functions may be expressed as follows:
wenzelm@17408
  1464
wenzelm@17408
  1465
  assoc = uncurry (AList.lookup (op =))
wenzelm@17408
  1466
  assocs = these oo AList.lookup (op =)
wenzelm@17408
  1467
  overwrite = uncurry (AList.update (op =)) o swap
wenzelm@17408
  1468
haftmann@17564
  1469
* Pure/General: structure AList (cf. Pure/General/alist.ML) provides
haftmann@17564
  1470
haftmann@17564
  1471
  val make: ('a -> 'b) -> 'a list -> ('a * 'b) list
haftmann@17564
  1472
  val find: ('a * 'b -> bool) -> ('c * 'b) list -> 'a -> 'c list
haftmann@17564
  1473
haftmann@17564
  1474
replacing make_keylist and keyfilter (occassionally used)
haftmann@17564
  1475
Naive rewrites:
haftmann@17564
  1476
haftmann@17564
  1477
  make_keylist = AList.make
haftmann@17564
  1478
  keyfilter = AList.find (op =)
haftmann@17564
  1479
haftmann@17564
  1480
* eq_fst and eq_snd now take explicit equality parameter, thus
haftmann@17564
  1481
  avoiding eqtypes. Naive rewrites:
haftmann@17564
  1482
haftmann@17564
  1483
    eq_fst = eq_fst (op =)
haftmann@17564
  1484
    eq_snd = eq_snd (op =)
haftmann@17564
  1485
haftmann@17564
  1486
* Removed deprecated apl and apr (rarely used).
haftmann@17564
  1487
  Naive rewrites:
haftmann@17564
  1488
haftmann@17564
  1489
    apl (n, op) =>>= curry op n
haftmann@17564
  1490
    apr (op, m) =>>= fn n => op (n, m)
haftmann@17564
  1491
wenzelm@17408
  1492
* Pure/General: structure OrdList (cf. Pure/General/ord_list.ML)
wenzelm@17408
  1493
provides a reasonably efficient light-weight implementation of sets as
wenzelm@17408
  1494
lists.
wenzelm@17408
  1495
wenzelm@17408
  1496
* Pure/General: generic tables (cf. Pure/General/table.ML) provide a
wenzelm@17408
  1497
few new operations; existing lookup and update are now curried to
wenzelm@17408
  1498
follow natural argument order (for use with fold etc.);
wenzelm@17408
  1499
INCOMPATIBILITY, use (uncurry Symtab.lookup) etc. as last resort.
wenzelm@17408
  1500
wenzelm@17408
  1501
* Pure/General: output via the Isabelle channels of
wenzelm@17408
  1502
writeln/warning/error etc. is now passed through Output.output, with a
wenzelm@17408
  1503
hook for arbitrary transformations depending on the print_mode
wenzelm@17408
  1504
(cf. Output.add_mode -- the first active mode that provides a output
wenzelm@17408
  1505
function wins).  Already formatted output may be embedded into further
wenzelm@17408
  1506
text via Output.raw; the result of Pretty.string_of/str_of and derived
wenzelm@17408
  1507
functions (string_of_term/cterm/thm etc.) is already marked raw to
wenzelm@17408
  1508
accommodate easy composition of diagnostic messages etc.  Programmers
wenzelm@17408
  1509
rarely need to care about Output.output or Output.raw at all, with
wenzelm@17408
  1510
some notable exceptions: Output.output is required when bypassing the
wenzelm@17408
  1511
standard channels (writeln etc.), or in token translations to produce
wenzelm@17408
  1512
properly formatted results; Output.raw is required when capturing
wenzelm@17408
  1513
already output material that will eventually be presented to the user
wenzelm@17408
  1514
a second time.  For the default print mode, both Output.output and
wenzelm@17408
  1515
Output.raw have no effect.
wenzelm@17408
  1516
wenzelm@17408
  1517
* Pure/General: Output.time_accumulator NAME creates an operator ('a
wenzelm@17408
  1518
-> 'b) -> 'a -> 'b to measure runtime and count invocations; the
wenzelm@17408
  1519
cumulative results are displayed at the end of a batch session.
wenzelm@17408
  1520
wenzelm@17408
  1521
* Pure/General: File.sysify_path and File.quote_sysify path have been
wenzelm@17408
  1522
replaced by File.platform_path and File.shell_path (with appropriate
wenzelm@17408
  1523
hooks).  This provides a clean interface for unusual systems where the
wenzelm@17408
  1524
internal and external process view of file names are different.
wenzelm@17408
  1525
wenzelm@16689
  1526
* Pure: more efficient orders for basic syntactic entities: added
wenzelm@16689
  1527
fast_string_ord, fast_indexname_ord, fast_term_ord; changed sort_ord
wenzelm@16689
  1528
and typ_ord to use fast_string_ord and fast_indexname_ord (term_ord is
wenzelm@16689
  1529
NOT affected); structures Symtab, Vartab, Typtab, Termtab use the fast
wenzelm@16689
  1530
orders now -- potential INCOMPATIBILITY for code that depends on a
wenzelm@16689
  1531
particular order for Symtab.keys, Symtab.dest, etc. (consider using
wenzelm@16689
  1532
Library.sort_strings on result).
wenzelm@16689
  1533
wenzelm@17408
  1534
* Pure/term.ML: combinators fold_atyps, fold_aterms, fold_term_types,
wenzelm@17408
  1535
fold_types traverse types/terms from left to right, observing natural
wenzelm@17408
  1536
argument order.  Supercedes previous foldl_XXX versions, add_frees,
wenzelm@17408
  1537
add_vars etc. have been adapted as well: INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17408
  1538
wenzelm@16151
  1539
* Pure: name spaces have been refined, with significant changes of the
wenzelm@16234
  1540
internal interfaces -- INCOMPATIBILITY.  Renamed cond_extern(_table)
wenzelm@16234
  1541
to extern(_table).  The plain name entry path is superceded by a
wenzelm@16234
  1542
general 'naming' context, which also includes the 'policy' to produce
wenzelm@16234
  1543
a fully qualified name and external accesses of a fully qualified
wenzelm@16234
  1544
name; NameSpace.extend is superceded by context dependent
wenzelm@16234
  1545
Sign.declare_name.  Several theory and proof context operations modify
wenzelm@16234
  1546
the naming context.  Especially note Theory.restore_naming and
wenzelm@16234
  1547
ProofContext.restore_naming to get back to a sane state; note that
wenzelm@16234
  1548
Theory.add_path is no longer sufficient to recover from
wenzelm@16234
  1549
Theory.absolute_path in particular.
wenzelm@16234
  1550
wenzelm@16234
  1551
* Pure: new flags short_names (default false) and unique_names
wenzelm@16234
  1552
(default true) for controlling output of qualified names.  If
wenzelm@16234
  1553
short_names is set, names are printed unqualified.  If unique_names is
wenzelm@16234
  1554
reset, the name prefix is reduced to the minimum required to achieve
wenzelm@16234
  1555
the original result when interning again, even if there is an overlap
wenzelm@16234
  1556
with earlier declarations.
wenzelm@16151
  1557
wenzelm@16456
  1558
* Pure/TheoryDataFun: change of the argument structure; 'prep_ext' is
wenzelm@16456
  1559
now 'extend', and 'merge' gets an additional Pretty.pp argument
wenzelm@16456
  1560
(useful for printing error messages).  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@16456
  1561
wenzelm@16456
  1562
* Pure: major reorganization of the theory context.  Type Sign.sg and
wenzelm@16456
  1563
Theory.theory are now identified, referring to the universal
wenzelm@16456
  1564
Context.theory (see Pure/context.ML).  Actual signature and theory
wenzelm@16456
  1565
content is managed as theory data.  The old code and interfaces were
wenzelm@16456
  1566
spread over many files and structures; the new arrangement introduces
wenzelm@16456
  1567
considerable INCOMPATIBILITY to gain more clarity:
wenzelm@16456
  1568
wenzelm@16456
  1569
  Context -- theory management operations (name, identity, inclusion,
wenzelm@16456
  1570
    parents, ancestors, merge, etc.), plus generic theory data;
wenzelm@16456
  1571
wenzelm@16456
  1572
  Sign -- logical signature and syntax operations (declaring consts,
wenzelm@16456
  1573
    types, etc.), plus certify/read for common entities;
wenzelm@16456
  1574
wenzelm@16456
  1575
  Theory -- logical theory operations (stating axioms, definitions,
wenzelm@16456
  1576
    oracles), plus a copy of logical signature operations (consts,
wenzelm@16456
  1577
    types, etc.); also a few basic management operations (Theory.copy,
wenzelm@16456
  1578
    Theory.merge, etc.)
wenzelm@16456
  1579
wenzelm@16456
  1580
The most basic sign_of operations (Theory.sign_of, Thm.sign_of_thm
wenzelm@16456
  1581
etc.) as well as the sign field in Thm.rep_thm etc. have been retained
wenzelm@16456
  1582
for convenience -- they merely return the theory.
wenzelm@16456
  1583
wenzelm@17193
  1584
* Pure: type Type.tsig is superceded by theory in most interfaces.
wenzelm@17193
  1585
wenzelm@16547
  1586
* Pure: the Isar proof context type is already defined early in Pure
wenzelm@16547
  1587
as Context.proof (note that ProofContext.context and Proof.context are
wenzelm@16547
  1588
aliases, where the latter is the preferred name).  This enables other
wenzelm@16547
  1589
Isabelle components to refer to that type even before Isar is present.
wenzelm@16547
  1590
wenzelm@16373
  1591
* Pure/sign/theory: discontinued named name spaces (i.e. classK,
wenzelm@16373
  1592
typeK, constK, axiomK, oracleK), but provide explicit operations for
wenzelm@16373
  1593
any of these kinds.  For example, Sign.intern typeK is now
wenzelm@16373
  1594
Sign.intern_type, Theory.hide_space Sign.typeK is now
wenzelm@16373
  1595
Theory.hide_types.  Also note that former
wenzelm@16373
  1596
Theory.hide_classes/types/consts are now
wenzelm@16373
  1597
Theory.hide_classes_i/types_i/consts_i, while the non '_i' versions
wenzelm@16373
  1598
internalize their arguments!  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@16373
  1599
wenzelm@16506
  1600
* Pure: get_thm interface (of PureThy and ProofContext) expects
wenzelm@16506
  1601
datatype thmref (with constructors Name and NameSelection) instead of
wenzelm@16506
  1602
plain string -- INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@16506
  1603
wenzelm@16151
  1604
* Pure: cases produced by proof methods specify options, where NONE
wenzelm@16234
  1605
means to remove case bindings -- INCOMPATIBILITY in
wenzelm@16234
  1606
(RAW_)METHOD_CASES.
wenzelm@16151
  1607
wenzelm@16373
  1608
* Pure: the following operations retrieve axioms or theorems from a
wenzelm@16373
  1609
theory node or theory hierarchy, respectively:
wenzelm@16373
  1610
wenzelm@16373
  1611
  Theory.axioms_of: theory -> (string * term) list
wenzelm@16373
  1612
  Theory.all_axioms_of: theory -> (string * term) list
wenzelm@16373
  1613
  PureThy.thms_of: theory -> (string * thm) list
wenzelm@16373
  1614
  PureThy.all_thms_of: theory -> (string * thm) list
wenzelm@16373
  1615
wenzelm@16718
  1616
* Pure: print_tac now outputs the goal through the trace channel.
wenzelm@16718
  1617
wenzelm@17408
  1618
* Isar toplevel: improved diagnostics, mostly for Poly/ML only.
wenzelm@17408
  1619
Reference Toplevel.debug (default false) controls detailed printing
wenzelm@17408
  1620
and tracing of low-level exceptions; Toplevel.profiling (default 0)
wenzelm@17408
  1621
controls execution profiling -- set to 1 for time and 2 for space
wenzelm@17408
  1622
(both increase the runtime).
wenzelm@17408
  1623
wenzelm@17408
  1624
* Isar session: The initial use of ROOT.ML is now always timed,
wenzelm@17408
  1625
i.e. the log will show the actual process times, in contrast to the
wenzelm@17408
  1626
elapsed wall-clock time that the outer shell wrapper produces.
wenzelm@17408
  1627
wenzelm@17408
  1628
* Simplifier: improved handling of bound variables (nameless
wenzelm@16997
  1629
representation, avoid allocating new strings).  Simprocs that invoke
wenzelm@16997
  1630
the Simplifier recursively should use Simplifier.inherit_bounds to
wenzelm@17720
  1631
avoid local name clashes.  Failure to do so produces warnings
wenzelm@17720
  1632
"Simplifier: renamed bound variable ..."; set Simplifier.debug_bounds
wenzelm@17720
  1633
for further details.
wenzelm@16234
  1634
wenzelm@17166
  1635
* ML functions legacy_bindings and use_legacy_bindings produce ML fact
wenzelm@17166
  1636
bindings for all theorems stored within a given theory; this may help
wenzelm@17166
  1637
in porting non-Isar theories to Isar ones, while keeping ML proof
wenzelm@17166
  1638
scripts for the time being.
wenzelm@17166
  1639
wenzelm@17457
  1640
* ML operator HTML.with_charset specifies the charset begin used for
wenzelm@17457
  1641
generated HTML files.  For example:
wenzelm@17457
  1642
wenzelm@17457
  1643
  HTML.with_charset "utf-8" use_thy "Hebrew";
wenzelm@17538
  1644
  HTML.with_charset "utf-8" use_thy "Chinese";

*** System ***
wenzelm@16234
  1648
wenzelm@16234
  1649
* Allow symlinks to all proper Isabelle executables (Isabelle,
wenzelm@16234
  1650
isabelle, isatool etc.).
wenzelm@16234
  1651
wenzelm@16234
  1652
* ISABELLE_DOC_FORMAT setting specifies preferred document format (for
wenzelm@16234
  1653
isatool doc, isatool mkdir, display_drafts etc.).
wenzelm@16234
  1654
wenzelm@16234
  1655
* isatool usedir: option -f allows specification of the ML file to be
wenzelm@16234
  1656
used by Isabelle; default is ROOT.ML.
wenzelm@16234
  1657
wenzelm@16251
  1658
* New isatool version outputs the version identifier of the Isabelle
wenzelm@16251
  1659
distribution being used.
wenzelm@16251
  1660
wenzelm@16251
  1661
* HOL: new isatool dimacs2hol converts files in DIMACS CNF format
wenzelm@16234
  1662
(containing Boolean satisfiability problems) into Isabelle/HOL
wenzelm@16234
  1663
theories.

ballarin@14398
  1672
* Provers/order.ML:  new efficient reasoner for partial and linear orders.
ballarin@14398
  1673
  Replaces linorder.ML.
ballarin@14398
  1674
wenzelm@14606
  1675
* Pure: Greek letters (except small lambda, \<lambda>), as well as Gothic
wenzelm@14606
  1676
  (\<aa>...\<zz>\<AA>...\<ZZ>), calligraphic (\<A>...\<Z>), and Euler
skalberg@14173
  1677
  (\<a>...\<z>), are now considered normal letters, and can therefore
skalberg@14173
  1678
  be used anywhere where an ASCII letter (a...zA...Z) has until
skalberg@14173
  1679
  now. COMPATIBILITY: This obviously changes the parsing of some
skalberg@14173
  1680
  terms, especially where a symbol has been used as a binder, say
skalberg@14173
  1681
  '\<Pi>x. ...', which is now a type error since \<Pi>x will be parsed
skalberg@14173
  1682
  as an identifier.  Fix it by inserting a space around former
skalberg@14173
  1683
  symbols.  Call 'isatool fixgreek' to try to fix parsing errors in
skalberg@14173
  1684
  existing theory and ML files.
skalberg@14171
  1685
paulson@14237
  1686
* Pure: Macintosh and Windows line-breaks are now allowed in theory files.
paulson@14237
  1687
wenzelm@14731
  1688
* Pure: single letter sub/superscripts (\<^isub> and \<^isup>) are now
wenzelm@14731
  1689
  allowed in identifiers. Similar to Greek letters \<^isub> is now considered
wenzelm@14731
  1690
  a normal (but invisible) letter. For multiple letter subscripts repeat
wenzelm@14731
  1691
  \<^isub> like this: x\<^isub>1\<^isub>2.
kleing@14233
  1692
kleing@14333
  1693
* Pure: There are now sub-/superscripts that can span more than one
kleing@14333
  1694
  character. Text between \<^bsub> and \<^esub> is set in subscript in
wenzelm@14606
  1695
  ProofGeneral and LaTeX, text between \<^bsup> and \<^esup> in
wenzelm@14606
  1696
  superscript. The new control characters are not identifier parts.
kleing@14333
  1697
schirmer@14561
  1698
* Pure: Control-symbols of the form \<^raw:...> will literally print the
wenzelm@14606
  1699
  content of "..." to the latex file instead of \isacntrl... . The "..."
wenzelm@14606
  1700
  may consist of any printable characters excluding the end bracket >.
schirmer@14361
  1701
paulson@14237
  1702
* Pure: Using new Isar command "finalconsts" (or the ML functions
paulson@14237
  1703
  Theory.add_finals or Theory.add_finals_i) it is now possible to
paulson@14237
  1704
  declare constants "final", which prevents their being given a definition
paulson@14237
  1705
  later.  It is useful for constants whose behaviour is fixed axiomatically
skalberg@14224
  1706
  rather than definitionally, such as the meta-logic connectives.
skalberg@14224
  1707
wenzelm@14606
  1708
* Pure: 'instance' now handles general arities with general sorts
wenzelm@14606
  1709
  (i.e. intersections of classes),
skalberg@14503
  1710
kleing@14547
  1711
* Presentation: generated HTML now uses a CSS style sheet to make layout
wenzelm@14731
  1712
  (somewhat) independent of content. It is copied from lib/html/isabelle.css.
kleing@14547
  1713
  It can be changed to alter the colors/layout of generated pages.

*** Isar ***
ballarin@14175
  1717
ballarin@14508
  1718
* Tactic emulation methods rule_tac, erule_tac, drule_tac, frule_tac,
ballarin@14508
  1719
  cut_tac, subgoal_tac and thin_tac:
ballarin@14175
  1720
  - Now understand static (Isar) contexts.  As a consequence, users of Isar
ballarin@14175
  1721
    locales are no longer forced to write Isar proof scripts.
ballarin@14175
  1722
    For details see Isar Reference Manual, paragraph 4.3.2: Further tactic
ballarin@14175
  1723
    emulations.
ballarin@14175
  1724
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: names of variables to be instantiated may no
ballarin@14211
  1725
    longer be enclosed in quotes.  Instead, precede variable name with `?'.
ballarin@14211
  1726
    This is consistent with the instantiation attribute "where".
ballarin@14211
  1727
ballarin@14257
  1728
* Attributes "where" and "of":
ballarin@14285
  1729
  - Now take type variables of instantiated theorem into account when reading
ballarin@14285
  1730
    the instantiation string.  This fixes a bug that caused instantiated
ballarin@14285
  1731
    theorems to have too special types in some circumstances.
ballarin@14285
  1732
  - "where" permits explicit instantiations of type variables.
ballarin@14257
  1733
wenzelm@14556
  1734
* Calculation commands "moreover" and "also" no longer interfere with
wenzelm@14556
  1735
  current facts ("this"), admitting arbitrary combinations with "then"
wenzelm@14556
  1736
  and derived forms.
kleing@14283
  1737
ballarin@14211
  1738
* Locales:
ballarin@14211
  1739
  - Goal statements involving the context element "includes" no longer
ballarin@14211
  1740
    generate theorems with internal delta predicates (those ending on
ballarin@14211
  1741
    "_axioms") in the premise.
ballarin@14211
  1742
    Resolve particular premise with <locale>.intro to obtain old form.
ballarin@14211
  1743
  - Fixed bug in type inference ("unify_frozen") that prevented mix of target
ballarin@14211
  1744
    specification and "includes" elements in goal statement.
ballarin@14254
  1745
  - Rule sets <locale>.intro and <locale>.axioms no longer declared as
ballarin@14254
  1746
    [intro?] and [elim?] (respectively) by default.
ballarin@14508
  1747
  - Experimental command for instantiation of locales in proof contexts:
ballarin@14551
  1748
        instantiate <label>[<attrs>]: <loc>
ballarin@14508
  1749
    Instantiates locale <loc> and adds all its theorems to the current context
ballarin@14551
  1750
    taking into account their attributes.  Label and attrs are optional
ballarin@14551
  1751
    modifiers, like in theorem declarations.  If present, names of
ballarin@14551
  1752
    instantiated theorems are qualified with <label>, and the attributes
ballarin@14551
  1753
    <attrs> are applied after any attributes these theorems might have already.
ballarin@14551
  1754
      If the locale has assumptions, a chained fact of the form
ballarin@14508
  1755
    "<loc> t1 ... tn" is expected from which instantiations of the parameters
ballarin@14551
  1756
    are derived.  The command does not support old-style locales declared
ballarin@14551
  1757
    with "locale (open)".
ballarin@14551
  1758
      A few (very simple) examples can be found in FOL/ex/LocaleInst.thy.
ballarin@14175
  1759
ballarin@14175
  1760
* HOL: Tactic emulation methods induct_tac and case_tac understand static
ballarin@14175
  1761
  (Isar) contexts.

*** HOL ***
kleing@14136
  1765
kleing@14624
  1766
* Proof import: new image HOL4 contains the imported library from
kleing@14624
  1767
  the HOL4 system with about 2500 theorems. It is imported by
kleing@14624
  1768
  replaying proof terms produced by HOL4 in Isabelle. The HOL4 image
kleing@14624
  1769
  can be used like any other Isabelle image.  See
kleing@14624
  1770
  HOL/Import/HOL/README for more information.
kleing@14624
  1771
ballarin@14398
  1772
* Simplifier:
ballarin@14398
  1773
  - Much improved handling of linear and partial orders.
ballarin@14398
  1774
    Reasoners for linear and partial orders are set up for type classes
ballarin@14398
  1775
    "linorder" and "order" respectively, and are added to the default simpset
ballarin@14398
  1776
    as solvers.  This means that the simplifier can build transitivity chains
ballarin@14398
  1777
    to solve goals from the assumptions.
ballarin@14398
  1778
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: old proofs break occasionally.  Typically, applications
ballarin@14398
  1779
    of blast or auto after simplification become unnecessary because the goal
ballarin@14398
  1780
    is solved by simplification already.
ballarin@14398
  1781
wenzelm@14731
  1782
* Numerics: new theory Ring_and_Field contains over 250 basic numerical laws,
paulson@14389
  1783
    all proved in axiomatic type classes for semirings, rings and fields.
paulson@14389
  1784
paulson@14389
  1785
* Numerics:
paulson@14389
  1786
  - Numeric types (nat, int, and in HOL-Complex rat, real, complex, etc.) are
wenzelm@14731
  1787
    now formalized using the Ring_and_Field theory mentioned above.
paulson@14389
  1788
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: simplification and arithmetic behaves somewhat differently
paulson@14389
  1789
    than before, because now they are set up once in a generic manner.
wenzelm@14731
  1790
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: many type-specific arithmetic laws have gone.
paulson@14480
  1791
    Look for the general versions in Ring_and_Field (and Power if they concern
paulson@14480
  1792
    exponentiation).
paulson@14389
  1793
paulson@14401
  1794
* Type "rat" of the rational numbers is now available in HOL-Complex.
paulson@14389
  1795
schirmer@14255
  1796
* Records:
schirmer@14255
  1797
  - Record types are now by default printed with their type abbreviation
schirmer@14255
  1798
    instead of the list of all field types. This can be configured via
schirmer@14255
  1799
    the reference "print_record_type_abbr".
wenzelm@14731
  1800
  - Simproc "record_upd_simproc" for simplification of multiple updates added
schirmer@14255
  1801
    (not enabled by default).
schirmer@14427
  1802
  - Simproc "record_ex_sel_eq_simproc" to simplify EX x. sel r = x resp.
schirmer@14427
  1803
    EX x. x = sel r to True (not enabled by default).
schirmer@14255
  1804
  - Tactic "record_split_simp_tac" to split and simplify records added.
wenzelm@14731
  1805
kleing@14136
  1806
* 'specification' command added, allowing for definition by
skalberg@14224
  1807
  specification.  There is also an 'ax_specification' command that
skalberg@14224
  1808
  introduces the new constants axiomatically.

  1814
* HOL-ex: InductiveInvariant_examples illustrates advanced recursive function

  definitions, thanks to Sava Krsti\'{c} and John Matthews.
kleing@14610
  1816
wenzelm@14731
  1817
* HOL-Matrix: a first theory for matrices in HOL with an application of
kleing@14610
  1818
  matrix theory to linear programming.
kleing@14136
  1819
nipkow@14380
  1820
* Unions and Intersections:
nipkow@15119
  1821
  The latex output syntax of UN and INT has been changed
nipkow@15119
  1822
  from "\Union x \in A. B" to "\Union_{x \in A} B"
nipkow@15119
  1823
  i.e. the index formulae has become a subscript.
nipkow@15119
  1824
  Similarly for "\Union x. B", and for \Inter instead of \Union.
nipkow@14380
  1825
kleing@14418
  1826
* Unions and Intersections over Intervals:
wenzelm@14731
  1827
  There is new short syntax "UN i<=n. A" for "UN i:{0..n}. A". There is
wenzelm@14731
  1828
  also an x-symbol version with subscripts "\<Union>\<^bsub>i <= n\<^esub>. A"
kleing@14418

* 'refute' command added to search for (finite) countermodels.  Only works
webertj@14464
  1838
  for a fragment of HOL.  The installation of an external SAT solver is
webertj@14464

berghofe@14602
  1843
  In contrast to 'refute', it can deal with inductive datatypes,
berghofe@14602
  1844
  but cannot handle quantifiers. See "HOL/ex/Quickcheck_Examples.thy"

* Provers/simplifier:
berghofe@13618
  1860
nipkow@13781
  1861
  - Completely reimplemented method simp (ML: Asm_full_simp_tac):
berghofe@13618
  1862
    Assumptions are now subject to complete mutual simplification,
berghofe@13618
  1863
    not just from left to right. The simplifier now preserves
berghofe@13618
  1864
    the order of assumptions.
berghofe@13618
  1865
berghofe@13618
  1866
    Potential INCOMPATIBILITY:
berghofe@13618
  1867
nipkow@13781
  1868
    -- simp sometimes diverges where the old version did
nipkow@13781
  1869
       not, e.g. invoking simp on the goal
berghofe@13618
  1870
berghofe@13618
  1871
        [| P (f x); y = x; f x = f y |] ==> Q
berghofe@13618
  1872
nipkow@13781
  1873
       now gives rise to the infinite reduction sequence
nipkow@13781
  1874
nipkow@13781
  1875
        P(f x) --(f x = f y)--> P(f y) --(y = x)--> P(f x) --(f x = f y)--> ...
nipkow@13781
  1876
nipkow@13781
  1877
       Using "simp (asm_lr)" (ML: Asm_lr_simp_tac) instead often solves this
nipkow@13781
  1878
       kind of problem.
nipkow@13781
  1879
nipkow@13781
  1880
    -- Tactics combining classical reasoner and simplification (such as auto)
nipkow@13781
  1881
       are also affected by this change, because many of them rely on
nipkow@13781
  1882
       simp. They may sometimes diverge as well or yield a different numbers
nipkow@13781
  1883
       of subgoals. Try to use e.g. force, fastsimp, or safe instead of auto
nipkow@13781
  1884
       in case of problems. Sometimes subsequent calls to the classical
nipkow@13781
  1885
       reasoner will fail because a preceeding call to the simplifier too
nipkow@13781
  1886
       eagerly simplified the goal, e.g. deleted redundant premises.
berghofe@13618
  1887
berghofe@13618
  1888
  - The simplifier trace now shows the names of the applied rewrite rules
berghofe@13618
  1889
nipkow@13829
  1890
  - You can limit the number of recursive invocations of the simplifier
nipkow@13829
  1891
    during conditional rewriting (where the simplifie tries to solve the
nipkow@13829
  1892
    conditions before applying the rewrite rule):
nipkow@13829
  1893
    ML "simp_depth_limit := n"
nipkow@13829
  1894
    where n is an integer. Thus you can force termination where previously
nipkow@13829
  1895
    the simplifier would diverge.
nipkow@13829
  1896
ballarin@13835

  - Accepts free variables as head terms in congruence rules.  Useful in Isar.
nipkow@13829

ballarin@13938
  1899
  - No longer aborts on failed congruence proof.  Instead, the
ballarin@13938
  1900
    congruence is ignored.

* Pure: New generic framework for extracting programs from constructive
berghofe@14008
  1903
  proofs. See HOL/Extraction.thy for an example instantiation, as well
berghofe@14008
  1904
  as HOL/Extraction for some case studies.
berghofe@14008
  1905
nipkow@13868
  1906
* Pure: The main goal of the proof state is no longer shown by default, only
nipkow@13868
  1907
the subgoals. This behaviour is controlled by a new flag.
ballarin@13835
  1908
   PG menu: Isabelle/Isar -> Settings -> Show Main Goal

  1909
(ML: Proof.show_main_goal).
nipkow@13815
  1910
nipkow@13815
  1911
* Pure: You can find all matching introduction rules for subgoal 1, i.e. all
nipkow@13815
  1912
rules whose conclusion matches subgoal 1:
nipkow@13815
  1913
      PG menu: Isabelle/Isar -> Show me -> matching rules
nipkow@13815
  1914
The rules are ordered by how closely they match the subgoal.
nipkow@13815
  1915
In particular, rules that solve a subgoal outright are displayed first
nipkow@13815
  1916
(or rather last, the way they are printed).

  1917
(ML: ProofGeneral.print_intros())
nipkow@13815
  1918
nipkow@13815
  1919
* Pure: New flag trace_unify_fail causes unification to print
nipkow@13781
  1920
diagnostic information (PG: in trace buffer) when it fails. This is
nipkow@13781
  1921
useful for figuring out why single step proofs like rule, erule or
nipkow@13781
  1922
assumption failed.
nipkow@13781
  1923
nipkow@13815
  1924
* Pure: Locale specifications now produce predicate definitions
wenzelm@13410
  1925
according to the body of text (covering assumptions modulo local
wenzelm@13410
  1926
definitions); predicate "loc_axioms" covers newly introduced text,
wenzelm@13410
  1927
while "loc" is cumulative wrt. all included locale expressions; the
wenzelm@13410
  1928
latter view is presented only on export into the global theory
wenzelm@13410
  1929
context; potential INCOMPATIBILITY, use "(open)" option to fall back
wenzelm@13410
  1930
on the old view without predicates;
wenzelm@13410
  1931
wenzelm@13459
  1932
* Pure: predefined locales "var" and "struct" are useful for sharing
wenzelm@13459
  1933
parameters (as in CASL, for example); just specify something like
wenzelm@13459
  1934
``var x + var y + struct M'' as import;
wenzelm@13459
  1935
wenzelm@13463
  1936
* Pure: improved thms_containing: proper indexing of facts instead of
wenzelm@13463
  1937
raw theorems; check validity of results wrt. current name space;
wenzelm@13463
  1938
include local facts of proof configuration (also covers active
wenzelm@13541
  1939
locales), cover fixed variables in index; may use "_" in term
wenzelm@13541
  1940
specification; an optional limit for the number of printed facts may
wenzelm@13541
  1941
be given (the default is 40);
wenzelm@13541
  1942
wenzelm@13541
  1943
* Pure: disallow duplicate fact bindings within new-style theory files

  1944
(batch-mode only);
wenzelm@13540
  1945
wenzelm@13463
  1946
* Provers: improved induct method: assumptions introduced by case
wenzelm@13463
  1947
"foo" are split into "foo.hyps" (from the rule) and "foo.prems" (from
wenzelm@13463
  1948
the goal statement); "foo" still refers to all facts collectively;
wenzelm@13463
  1949
paulson@13550
  1950
* Provers: the function blast.overloaded has been removed: all constants
paulson@13550
  1951
are regarded as potentially overloaded, which improves robustness in exchange
paulson@13550
  1952
for slight decrease in efficiency;

  2113
    "case (Suc n)");
wenzelm@12280
  2114
  - 'induct' method divinates rule instantiation from the inductive
wenzelm@12280
  2115
    claim; no longer requires excessive ?P bindings for proper
wenzelm@12280
  2116
    instantiation of cases;
wenzelm@12280
  2117
  - 'induct' method properly enumerates all possibilities of set/type
wenzelm@12280
  2118
    rules; as a consequence facts may be also passed through *type*
wenzelm@12280
  2119
    rules without further ado;
wenzelm@12280
  2120
  - 'induct' method now derives symbolic cases from the *rulified*
wenzelm@12280
  2121
    rule (before it used to rulify cases stemming from the internal
wenzelm@12280
  2122
    atomized version); this means that the context of a non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
  2123
    statement becomes is included in the hypothesis, avoiding the
wenzelm@12280
  2124
    slightly cumbersome show "PROP ?case" form;
wenzelm@12280
  2125
  - 'induct' may now use elim-style induction rules without chaining
wenzelm@12280
  2126
    facts, using ``missing'' premises from the goal state; this allows
wenzelm@12280
  2127
    rules stemming from inductive sets to be applied in unstructured
wenzelm@12280
  2128
    scripts, while still benefitting from proper handling of non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
  2129
    statements; NB: major inductive premises need to be put first, all
wenzelm@12280
  2130
    the rest of the goal is passed through the induction;
wenzelm@12280
  2131
  - 'induct' proper support for mutual induction involving non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
  2132
    rule statements (uses the new concept of simultaneous goals, see
wenzelm@12280
  2133
    below);
wenzelm@12853
  2134
  - append all possible rule selections, but only use the first
wenzelm@12853
  2135
    success (no backtracking);
wenzelm@11995
  2136
  - removed obsolete "(simplified)" and "(stripped)" options of methods;
wenzelm@12754
  2137
  - undeclared rule case names default to numbers 1, 2, 3, ...;
wenzelm@12754
  2138
  - added 'print_induct_rules' (covered by help item in recent Proof
wenzelm@12754
  2139
    General versions);
wenzelm@11995
  2140
  - moved induct/cases attributes to Pure, methods to Provers;
wenzelm@11995
  2141
  - generic method setup instantiated for FOL and HOL;
wenzelm@11986
  2142
wenzelm@12163
  2143
* Pure: support multiple simultaneous goal statements, for example
wenzelm@12163
  2144
"have a: A and b: B" (same for 'theorem' etc.); being a pure
wenzelm@12163
  2145
meta-level mechanism, this acts as if several individual goals had
wenzelm@12163
  2146
been stated separately; in particular common proof methods need to be
wenzelm@12163
  2147
repeated in order to cover all claims; note that a single elimination
wenzelm@12163
  2148
step is *not* sufficient to establish the two conjunctions, so this
wenzelm@12163
  2149
fails:
wenzelm@12163
  2150
wenzelm@12163
  2151
  assume "A & B" then have A and B ..   (*".." fails*)
wenzelm@12163
  2152
wenzelm@12163
  2153
better use "obtain" in situations as above; alternative refer to
wenzelm@12163
  2154
multi-step methods like 'auto', 'simp_all', 'blast+' etc.;
wenzelm@12163
  2155
wenzelm@12078
  2156
* Pure: proper integration with ``locales''; unlike the original
webertj@15154
  2157
version by Florian Kammller, Isar locales package high-level proof
wenzelm@12078
  2158
contexts rather than raw logical ones (e.g. we admit to include
wenzelm@12280
  2159
attributes everywhere); operations on locales include merge and
wenzelm@12964
  2160
rename; support for implicit arguments (``structures''); simultaneous
wenzelm@12964
  2161
type-inference over imports and text; see also HOL/ex/Locales.thy for
wenzelm@12964
  2162
some examples;
wenzelm@12078
  2163
wenzelm@12707
  2164
* Pure: the following commands have been ``localized'', supporting a
wenzelm@12707
  2165
target locale specification "(in name)": 'lemma', 'theorem',
wenzelm@12707
  2166
'corollary', 'lemmas', 'theorems', 'declare'; the results will be
wenzelm@12707
  2167
stored both within the locale and at the theory level (exported and
wenzelm@12707
  2168
qualified by the locale name);
wenzelm@12707
  2169
wenzelm@12964
  2170
* Pure: theory goals may now be specified in ``long'' form, with
wenzelm@12964
  2171
ad-hoc contexts consisting of arbitrary locale elements. for example
wenzelm@12964
  2172
``lemma foo: fixes x assumes "A x" shows "B x"'' (local syntax and
wenzelm@12964
  2173
definitions may be given, too); the result is a meta-level rule with
wenzelm@12964
  2174
the context elements being discharged in the obvious way;
wenzelm@12964
  2175
wenzelm@12964
  2176
* Pure: new proof command 'using' allows to augment currently used
wenzelm@12964
  2177
facts after a goal statement ('using' is syntactically analogous to
wenzelm@12964
  2178
'apply', but acts on the goal's facts only); this allows chained facts
wenzelm@12964
  2179
to be separated into parts given before and after a claim, as in
wenzelm@12964
  2180
``from a and b have C using d and e <proof>'';
wenzelm@12078
  2181
wenzelm@11722
  2182
* Pure: renamed "antecedent" case to "rule_context";
wenzelm@11722
  2183
wenzelm@12964
  2184
* Pure: new 'judgment' command records explicit information about the
wenzelm@12964
  2185
object-logic embedding (used by several tools internally); no longer
wenzelm@12964
  2186
use hard-wired "Trueprop";
wenzelm@12964
  2187
wenzelm@11738
  2188
* Pure: added 'corollary' command;
wenzelm@11738
  2189
wenzelm@11722
  2190
* Pure: fixed 'token_translation' command;
wenzelm@11722
  2191
wenzelm@11899
  2192
* Pure: removed obsolete 'exported' attribute;
wenzelm@11899
  2193
wenzelm@11933
  2194
* Pure: dummy pattern "_" in is/let is now automatically lifted over
wenzelm@11933
  2195
bound variables: "ALL x. P x --> Q x" (is "ALL x. _ --> ?C x")
wenzelm@11899
  2196
supersedes more cumbersome ... (is "ALL x. _ x --> ?C x");
wenzelm@11899
  2197
wenzelm@11952
  2198
* Pure: method 'atomize' presents local goal premises as object-level
wenzelm@11952
  2199
statements (atomic meta-level propositions); setup controlled via
wenzelm@11952
  2200
rewrite rules declarations of 'atomize' attribute; example
wenzelm@11952
  2201
application: 'induct' method with proper rule statements in improper
wenzelm@11952
  2202
proof *scripts*;
wenzelm@11952
  2203
wenzelm@12106
  2204
* Pure: emulation of instantiation tactics (rule_tac, cut_tac, etc.)
wenzelm@12106
  2205
now consider the syntactic context of assumptions, giving a better
wenzelm@12106
  2206
chance to get type-inference of the arguments right (this is
wenzelm@12106
  2207
especially important for locales);
wenzelm@12106
  2208
wenzelm@12312
  2209
* Pure: "sorry" no longer requires quick_and_dirty in interactive
wenzelm@12312
  2210
mode;
wenzelm@12312
  2211
wenzelm@12405
  2212
* Pure/obtain: the formal conclusion "thesis", being marked as
wenzelm@12405
  2213
``internal'', may no longer be reference directly in the text;
wenzelm@12405
  2214
potential INCOMPATIBILITY, may need to use "?thesis" in rare
wenzelm@12405
  2215
situations;
wenzelm@12405
  2216
wenzelm@12405
  2217
* Pure: generic 'sym' attribute which declares a rule both as pure
wenzelm@12405
  2218
'elim?' and for the 'symmetric' operation;
wenzelm@12405
  2219
wenzelm@12877
  2220
* Pure: marginal comments ``--'' may now occur just anywhere in the
wenzelm@12877
  2221
text; the fixed correlation with particular command syntax has been
wenzelm@12877
  2222
discontinued;
wenzelm@12877
  2223
berghofe@13023
  2224
* Pure: new method 'rules' is particularly well-suited for proof
berghofe@13023
  2225
search in intuitionistic logic; a bit slower than 'blast' or 'fast',
berghofe@13023
  2226
but often produces more compact proof terms with less detours;
berghofe@13023
  2227
wenzelm@12364
  2228
* Pure/Provers/classical: simplified integration with pure rule
wenzelm@12364
  2229
attributes and methods; the classical "intro?/elim?/dest?"
wenzelm@12364
  2230
declarations coincide with the pure ones; the "rule" method no longer
wenzelm@12364
  2231
includes classically swapped intros; "intro" and "elim" methods no
wenzelm@12364
  2232
longer pick rules from the context; also got rid of ML declarations
wenzelm@12364
  2233
AddXIs/AddXEs/AddXDs; all of this has some potential for
wenzelm@12364
  2234
INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12364
  2235
wenzelm@12405
  2236
* Provers/classical: attribute 'swapped' produces classical inversions
wenzelm@12405
  2237
of introduction rules;
wenzelm@12405
  2238
wenzelm@12364
  2239
* Provers/simplifier: 'simplified' attribute may refer to explicit
wenzelm@12364
  2240
rules instead of full simplifier context; 'iff' attribute handles
wenzelm@12364
  2241
conditional rules;
wenzelm@11936
  2242
wenzelm@11745
  2243
* HOL: 'typedef' now allows alternative names for Rep/Abs morphisms;
wenzelm@11745
  2244
wenzelm@11690
  2245
* HOL: 'recdef' now fails on unfinished automated proofs, use
wenzelm@11633
  2246
"(permissive)" option to recover old behavior;
wenzelm@11633
  2247
wenzelm@11933
  2248
* HOL: 'inductive' no longer features separate (collective) attributes
wenzelm@11933
  2249
for 'intros' (was found too confusing);
wenzelm@11933
  2250
wenzelm@12405
  2251
* HOL: properly declared induction rules less_induct and
wenzelm@12405
  2252
wf_induct_rule;
wenzelm@12405
  2253
kleing@11788
  2254
wenzelm@11474
  2255
*** HOL ***
wenzelm@11474
  2256
wenzelm@11702
  2257
* HOL: moved over to sane numeral syntax; the new policy is as
wenzelm@11702
  2258
follows:
wenzelm@11702
  2259
wenzelm@11702
  2260
  - 0 and 1 are polymorphic constants, which are defined on any
wenzelm@11702
  2261
  numeric type (nat, int, real etc.);
wenzelm@11702
  2262
wenzelm@11702
  2263
  - 2, 3, 4, ... and -1, -2, -3, ... are polymorphic numerals, based
wenzelm@11702
  2264
  binary representation internally;
wenzelm@11702
  2265
wenzelm@11702
  2266
  - type nat has special constructor Suc, and generally prefers Suc 0
wenzelm@11702
  2267
  over 1::nat and Suc (Suc 0) over 2::nat;
wenzelm@11702
  2268
wenzelm@12364
  2269
This change may cause significant problems of INCOMPATIBILITY; here
wenzelm@12364
  2270
are some hints on converting existing sources:
wenzelm@11702
  2271
wenzelm@11702
  2272
  - due to the new "num" token, "-0" and "-1" etc. are now atomic
wenzelm@11702
  2273
  entities, so expressions involving "-" (unary or binary minus) need
wenzelm@11702
  2274
  to be spaced properly;
wenzelm@11702
  2275
wenzelm@11702
  2276
  - existing occurrences of "1" may need to be constraint "1::nat" or
wenzelm@11702
  2277
  even replaced by Suc 0; similar for old "2";
wenzelm@11702
  2278
wenzelm@11702
  2279
  - replace "#nnn" by "nnn", and "#-nnn" by "-nnn";
wenzelm@11702
  2280
wenzelm@11702
  2281
  - remove all special provisions on numerals in proofs;
wenzelm@11702
  2282
wenzelm@13042
  2283
* HOL: simp rules nat_number expand numerals on nat to Suc/0
wenzelm@12837
  2284
representation (depends on bin_arith_simps in the default context);
wenzelm@12837
  2285
wenzelm@12736
  2286
* HOL: symbolic syntax for x^2 (numeral 2);
wenzelm@12736
  2287
wenzelm@12335
  2288
* HOL: the class of all HOL types is now called "type" rather than
wenzelm@12335
  2289
"term"; INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt references to this type class
wenzelm@12335
  2290
in axclass/classes, instance/arities, and (usually rare) occurrences
wenzelm@12335
  2291
in typings (of consts etc.); internally the class is called
wenzelm@12335
  2292
"HOL.type", ML programs should refer to HOLogic.typeS;
wenzelm@12335
  2293
wenzelm@12280
  2294
* HOL/record package improvements:
wenzelm@12280
  2295
  - new derived operations "fields" to build a partial record section,
wenzelm@12280
  2296
    "extend" to promote a fixed record to a record scheme, and
wenzelm@12280
  2297
    "truncate" for the reverse; cf. theorems "xxx.defs", which are *not*
wenzelm@12280
  2298
    declared as simp by default;
wenzelm@12587
  2299
  - shared operations ("more", "fields", etc.) now need to be always
wenzelm@12587
  2300
    qualified) --- potential INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12280
  2301
  - removed "make_scheme" operations (use "make" with "extend") --
wenzelm@12280
  2302
    INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@11937
  2303
  - removed "more" class (simply use "term") -- INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12253
  2304
  - provides cases/induct rules for use with corresponding Isar
wenzelm@12253
  2305
    methods (for concrete records, record schemes, concrete more
wenzelm@12280
  2306
    parts, and schematic more parts -- in that order);
wenzelm@11930
  2307
  - internal definitions directly based on a light-weight abstract
wenzelm@11930
  2308
    theory of product types over typedef rather than datatype;
wenzelm@11930
  2309
berghofe@13023
  2310
* HOL: generic code generator for generating executable ML code from
berghofe@13023
  2311
specifications; specific support for HOL constructs such as inductive
berghofe@13023
  2312
datatypes and sets, as well as recursive functions; can be invoked
berghofe@13023
  2313
via 'generate_code' theory section;
berghofe@13023
  2314
wenzelm@11933
  2315
* HOL: canonical cases/induct rules for n-tuples (n = 3..7);
wenzelm@11933
  2316
paulson@13824
  2317
* HOL: consolidated and renamed several theories.  In particular:
wenzelm@14731
  2318
        Ord.thy has been absorbed into HOL.thy
wenzelm@14731
  2319
        String.thy has been absorbed into List.thy
wenzelm@14731
  2320
wenzelm@11802
  2321
* HOL: concrete setsum syntax "\<Sum>i:A. b" == "setsum (%i. b) A"
wenzelm@11802
  2322
(beware of argument permutation!);
wenzelm@11802
  2323
wenzelm@11657
  2324
* HOL: linorder_less_split superseded by linorder_cases;
wenzelm@11657
  2325
wenzelm@12917
  2326
* HOL/List: "nodups" renamed to "distinct";
nipkow@12889
  2327
wenzelm@11633
  2328
* HOL: added "The" definite description operator; move Hilbert's "Eps"
paulson@13824
  2329
to peripheral theory "Hilbert_Choice"; some INCOMPATIBILITIES:
paulson@13824
  2330
  - Ex_def has changed, now need to use some_eq_ex
wenzelm@11437
  2331
wenzelm@11572
  2332
* HOL: made split_all_tac safe; EXISTING PROOFS MAY FAIL OR LOOP, so
wenzelm@11572
  2333
in this (rare) case use:
wenzelm@11572
  2334
wenzelm@11572
  2335
  delSWrapper "split_all_tac"
wenzelm@11572
  2336
  addSbefore ("unsafe_split_all_tac", unsafe_split_all_tac)
wenzelm@11572
  2337
wenzelm@11572
  2338
* HOL: added safe wrapper "split_conv_tac" to claset; EXISTING PROOFS
wenzelm@11474
  2339
MAY FAIL;
nipkow@11361
  2340
wenzelm@11572
  2341
* HOL: introduced f^n = f o ... o f; warning: due to the limits of
wenzelm@11572
  2342
Isabelle's type classes, ^ on functions and relations has too general
wenzelm@11572
  2343
a domain, namely ('a * 'b) set and 'a => 'b; this means that it may be
wenzelm@11572
  2344
necessary to attach explicit type constraints;
nipkow@11307
  2345
wenzelm@12917
  2346
* HOL/Relation: the prefix name of the infix "O" has been changed from
wenzelm@12917
  2347
"comp" to "rel_comp"; INCOMPATIBILITY: a few theorems have been
wenzelm@12917
  2348
renamed accordingly (eg "compI" -> "rel_compI").
nipkow@12489
  2349
wenzelm@11487
  2350
* HOL: syntax translations now work properly with numerals and records
wenzelm@11487
  2351
expressions;
wenzelm@11474
  2352
wenzelm@12457
  2353
* HOL: bounded abstraction now uses syntax "%" / "\<lambda>" instead
wenzelm@12457
  2354
of "lam" -- INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@11474
  2355
wenzelm@11933
  2356
* HOL: got rid of some global declarations (potential INCOMPATIBILITY
wenzelm@11933
  2357
for ML tools): const "()" renamed "Product_Type.Unity", type "unit"
wenzelm@11933
  2358
renamed "Product_Type.unit";
wenzelm@11611
  2359
nipkow@12564
  2360
* HOL: renamed rtrancl_into_rtrancl2 to converse_rtrancl_into_rtrancl
nipkow@12564
  2361
wenzelm@12924
  2362
* HOL: removed obsolete theorem "optionE" (use "option.exhaust", or
wenzelm@12924
  2363
the "cases" method);
wenzelm@12924
  2364
wenzelm@12597
  2365
* HOL/GroupTheory: group theory examples including Sylow's theorem (by
webertj@15154
  2366
Florian Kammller);
wenzelm@12597
  2367
wenzelm@12608
  2368
* HOL/IMP: updated and converted to new-style theory format; several
wenzelm@12608
  2369
parts turned into readable document, with proper Isar proof texts and
wenzelm@12608
  2370
some explanations (by Gerwin Klein);
wenzelm@12597
  2371
wenzelm@12734
  2372
* HOL-Real: added Complex_Numbers (by Gertrud Bauer);
wenzelm@12734
  2373
wenzelm@12690
  2374
* HOL-Hyperreal is now a logic image;
wenzelm@12690

wenzelm@12022
  2377
*** HOLCF ***
wenzelm@12022
  2378
wenzelm@12622
  2379
* Isar: consts/constdefs supports mixfix syntax for continuous

  2380
operations;
wenzelm@12622
  2381
wenzelm@12622
  2382
* Isar: domain package adapted to new-style theory format, e.g. see

potential INCOMPATIBILITY; now use plain induct_tac instead of former
wenzelm@12280
  2387
lift.induct_tac, always use UU instead of Undef;
wenzelm@12022
  2388
wenzelm@12597

*** ZF ***
wenzelm@11474
  2393
wenzelm@12622
  2394
* Isar: proper integration of logic-specific tools and packages,
wenzelm@12622
  2395
including theory commands '(co)inductive', '(co)datatype',
wenzelm@12622
  2396
'rep_datatype', 'inductive_cases', as well as methods 'ind_cases',
wenzelm@12622
  2397
'induct_tac', 'case_tac', and 'typecheck' (with attribute 'TC');
wenzelm@12622
  2398
wenzelm@12622
  2399
* theory Main no longer includes AC; for the Axiom of Choice, base
wenzelm@12622
  2400
your theory on Main_ZFC;
wenzelm@12622
  2401
wenzelm@12622
  2402
* the integer library now covers quotients and remainders, with many
wenzelm@12622
  2403
laws relating division to addition, multiplication, etc.;
paulson@12563
  2404
wenzelm@12280
  2405
* ZF/UNITY: Chandy and Misra's UNITY is now available in ZF, giving a
wenzelm@12280
  2406
typeless version of the formalism;
wenzelm@12280
  2407
wenzelm@13025
  2408
* ZF/AC, Coind, IMP, Resid: updated and converted to new-style theory
wenzelm@13025
  2409
format;
wenzelm@12608
  2410
wenzelm@12280
  2411
* ZF/Induct: new directory for examples of inductive definitions,
wenzelm@12608
  2412
including theory Multiset for multiset orderings; converted to
wenzelm@12608
  2413
new-style theory format;
wenzelm@12177
  2414
wenzelm@13025
  2415

* Pure/kernel: meta-level proof terms (by Stefan Berghofer); reference
wenzelm@12280
  2421
variable proof controls level of detail: 0 = no proofs (only oracle
wenzelm@12280
  2422
dependencies), 1 = lemma dependencies, 2 = compact proof terms; see
wenzelm@12280
  2423
also ref manual for further ML interfaces;
wenzelm@12280
  2424
wenzelm@12280
  2425
* Pure/axclass: removed obsolete ML interface
wenzelm@12280
  2426
goal_subclass/goal_arity;
wenzelm@12280
  2427
wenzelm@12280
  2428
* Pure/syntax: new token syntax "num" for plain numerals (without "#"
wenzelm@12280
  2429
of "xnum"); potential INCOMPATIBILITY, since -0, -1 etc. are now
wenzelm@12280
  2430
separate tokens, so expressions involving minus need to be spaced
wenzelm@12280
  2431
properly;
wenzelm@12280
  2432
wenzelm@12312
  2433
* Pure/syntax: support non-oriented infixes, using keyword "infix"
wenzelm@12312
  2434
rather than "infixl" or "infixr";
wenzelm@12312
  2435
wenzelm@12312
  2436
* Pure/syntax: concrete syntax for dummy type variables admits genuine
wenzelm@12312
  2437
sort constraint specifications in type inference; e.g. "x::_::foo"
wenzelm@12312
  2438
ensures that the type of "x" is of sort "foo" (but not necessarily a
wenzelm@12312
  2439
type variable);
wenzelm@12280
  2440
wenzelm@12280
  2441
* Pure/syntax: print modes "type_brackets" and "no_type_brackets"
wenzelm@12280
  2442
control output of nested => (types); the default behavior is
wenzelm@12280
  2443
"type_brackets";
wenzelm@12280
  2444
wenzelm@12280
  2445
* Pure/syntax: builtin parse translation for "_constify" turns valued
wenzelm@11817
  2446
tokens into AST constants;
wenzelm@11474
  2447
wenzelm@12280
  2448
* Pure/syntax: prefer later declarations of translations and print
wenzelm@12280
  2449
translation functions; potential INCOMPATIBILITY: need to reverse
wenzelm@12280
  2450
multiple declarations for same syntax element constant;
wenzelm@12280
  2451
wenzelm@12832
  2452
* Pure/show_hyps reset by default (in accordance to existing Isar
wenzelm@12832
  2453
practice);
wenzelm@12832
  2454
wenzelm@12280
  2455
* Provers/classical: renamed addaltern to addafter, addSaltern to
wenzelm@12280
  2456
addSafter;
wenzelm@12280
  2457
wenzelm@12280
  2458
* Provers/clasimp: ``iff'' declarations now handle conditional rules
wenzelm@12280
  2459
as well;
wenzelm@12253
  2460
wenzelm@12538
  2461
* system: tested support for MacOS X; should be able to get Isabelle +
wenzelm@12538
  2462
Proof General to work in a plain Terminal after installing Poly/ML
wenzelm@12538
  2463
(e.g. from the Isabelle distribution area) and GNU bash alone
wenzelm@12538
  2464
(e.g. from http://www.apple.com); full X11, XEmacs and X-Symbol
wenzelm@12538
  2465
support requires further installations, e.g. from
wenzelm@12538
  2466
http://fink.sourceforge.net/);
wenzelm@12538
  2467
wenzelm@12280
  2468
* system: support Poly/ML 4.1.1 (able to manage larger heaps);
wenzelm@11551
  2469
wenzelm@12753
  2470
* system: reduced base memory usage by Poly/ML (approx. 20 MB instead
wenzelm@12753
  2471
of 40 MB), cf. ML_OPTIONS;
wenzelm@12753
  2472
wenzelm@11633
  2473
* system: Proof General keywords specification is now part of the
wenzelm@11633
  2474
Isabelle distribution (see etc/isar-keywords.el);
wenzelm@11633
  2475
wenzelm@12728
  2476
* system: support for persistent Proof General sessions (refrain from
wenzelm@12728
  2477
outdating all loaded theories on startup); user may create writable
wenzelm@12728
  2478
logic images like this: ``isabelle -q HOL Test'';
wenzelm@12597
  2479
wenzelm@11551
  2480
* system: smart selection of Isabelle process versus Isabelle
wenzelm@11572
  2481
interface, accommodates case-insensitive file systems (e.g. HFS+); may
wenzelm@11572
  2482
run both "isabelle" and "Isabelle" even if file names are badly
wenzelm@11572
  2483
damaged (executable inspects the case of the first letter of its own
wenzelm@11572
  2484
name); added separate "isabelle-process" and "isabelle-interface";
wenzelm@11551
  2485
wenzelm@12472
  2486
* system: refrain from any attempt at filtering input streams; no
wenzelm@12472
  2487
longer support ``8bit'' encoding of old isabelle font, instead proper
wenzelm@12472
  2488
iso-latin characters may now be used; the related isatools
wenzelm@12472
  2489
"symbolinput" and "nonascii" have disappeared as well;
wenzelm@12472
  2490
wenzelm@12472
  2491
* system: removed old "xterm" interface (the print modes "xterm" and
wenzelm@12472
  2492
"xterm_color" are still available for direct use in a suitable
wenzelm@12472
  2493

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES ***
nipkow@10224
  2501
paulson@11241
  2502
* HOL: please note that theories in the Library and elsewhere often use the
paulson@11241
  2503
new-style (Isar) format; to refer to their theorems in an ML script you must
wenzelm@12622
  2504
bind them to ML identifers by e.g.      val thm_name = thm "thm_name";
paulson@11241
  2505
wenzelm@11043
  2506
* HOL: inductive package no longer splits induction rule aggressively,
wenzelm@11043
  2507
but only as far as specified by the introductions given; the old
oheimb@11130
  2508
format may be recovered via ML function complete_split_rule or attribute
wenzelm@11043
  2509
'split_rule (complete)';
wenzelm@11043
  2510
wenzelm@10998
  2511
* HOL: induct renamed to lfp_induct, lfp_Tarski to lfp_unfold,
wenzelm@10998
  2512
gfp_Tarski to gfp_unfold;
nipkow@10224
  2513
paulson@10288
  2514
* HOL: contrapos, contrapos2 renamed to contrapos_nn, contrapos_pp;
paulson@10288
  2515
wenzelm@10858
  2516
* HOL: infix "dvd" now has priority 50 rather than 70 (because it is a
wenzelm@10858
  2517
relation); infix "^^" has been renamed "``"; infix "``" has been
wenzelm@10858
  2518
renamed "`"; "univalent" has been renamed "single_valued";
nipkow@10793
  2519
wenzelm@10998
  2520
* HOL/Real: "rinv" and "hrinv" replaced by overloaded "inverse"
wenzelm@10998
  2521
operation;
wenzelm@10998
  2522
nipkow@10868
  2523
* HOLCF: infix "`" has been renamed "$"; the symbol syntax is \<cdot>;
nipkow@10856
  2524
wenzelm@10391
  2525
* Isar: 'obtain' no longer declares "that" fact as simp/intro;
wenzelm@10391
  2526
wenzelm@10401
  2527
* Isar/HOL: method 'induct' now handles non-atomic goals; as a
wenzelm@10401
  2528
consequence, it is no longer monotonic wrt. the local goal context
wenzelm@10401
  2529
(which is now passed through the inductive cases);
wenzelm@10401
  2530
wenzelm@10976
  2531
* Document preparation: renamed standard symbols \<ll> to \<lless> and
wenzelm@10976
  2532
\<gg> to \<ggreater>;
wenzelm@10976
  2533
nipkow@10224

wenzelm@10245
  2535
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@10245
  2536
wenzelm@10858
  2537
* \isabellestyle{NAME} selects version of Isabelle output (currently
wenzelm@10858
  2538
available: are "it" for near math-mode best-style output, "sl" for
wenzelm@10858
  2539
slanted text style, and "tt" for plain type-writer; if no
wenzelm@10858
  2540
\isabellestyle command is given, output is according to slanted
wenzelm@10858
  2541
type-writer);
wenzelm@10858
  2542
wenzelm@10322
  2543
* support sub/super scripts (for single symbols only), input syntax is
wenzelm@10322
  2544
like this: "A\<^sup>*" or "A\<^sup>\<star>";
wenzelm@10322
  2545
wenzelm@10858
  2546
* some more standard symbols; see Appendix A of the system manual for
wenzelm@11062
  2547
the complete list of symbols defined in isabellesym.sty;
wenzelm@10858
  2548
wenzelm@10998
  2549
* improved isabelle style files; more abstract symbol implementation
wenzelm@10998
  2550
(should now use \isamath{...} and \isatext{...} in custom symbol
wenzelm@10998
  2551
definitions);
wenzelm@10998
  2552
wenzelm@10634
  2553
* antiquotation @{goals} and @{subgoals} for output of *dynamic* goals
wenzelm@10634
  2554
state; Note that presentation of goal states does not conform to
wenzelm@10634
  2555
actual human-readable proof documents.  Please do not include goal
wenzelm@10634
  2556
states into document output unless you really know what you are doing!
wenzelm@10322
  2557
wenzelm@11062
  2558
* proper indentation of antiquoted output with proportional LaTeX
wenzelm@11062
  2559
fonts;
wenzelm@10862
  2560
wenzelm@11050
  2561
* no_document ML operator temporarily disables LaTeX document
wenzelm@11050
  2562
generation;
wenzelm@11050
  2563
wenzelm@11062
  2564

  2567
*** Isar ***
wenzelm@10306
  2568
wenzelm@10547
  2569
* Pure: Isar now suffers initial goal statements to contain unbound
wenzelm@10547
  2570
schematic variables (this does not conform to actual readable proof
wenzelm@10547
  2571
documents, due to unpredictable outcome and non-compositional proof
wenzelm@10547
  2572
checking); users who know what they are doing may use schematic goals
wenzelm@10547
  2573
for Prolog-style synthesis of proven results;
wenzelm@10547
  2574
wenzelm@10391
  2575
* Pure: assumption method (an implicit finishing) now handles actual
wenzelm@10391
  2576
rules as well;
wenzelm@10391
  2577
wenzelm@10391
  2578
* Pure: improved 'obtain' --- moved to Pure, insert "that" into
wenzelm@10391
  2579
initial goal, declare "that" only as Pure intro (only for single
wenzelm@10391
  2580
steps); the "that" rule assumption may now be involved in implicit
wenzelm@10391
  2581
finishing, thus ".." becomes a feasible for trivial obtains;
wenzelm@10391
  2582
wenzelm@10391
  2583
* Pure: default proof step now includes 'intro_classes'; thus trivial
wenzelm@10391
  2584
instance proofs may be performed by "..";
wenzelm@10391
  2585
wenzelm@10391
  2586
* Pure: ?thesis / ?this / "..." now work for pure meta-level
wenzelm@10391
  2587
statements as well;
wenzelm@10306
  2588
wenzelm@11097
  2589
* Pure: more robust selection of calculational rules;
wenzelm@11097
  2590
wenzelm@10858
  2591
* Pure: the builtin notion of 'finished' goal now includes the ==-refl
wenzelm@10858
  2592
rule (as well as the assumption rule);
wenzelm@10858
  2593
wenzelm@10858
  2594
* Pure: 'thm_deps' command visualizes dependencies of theorems and
wenzelm@10858
  2595
lemmas, using the graph browser tool;
wenzelm@10858
  2596
wenzelm@10944
  2597
* Pure: predict failure of "show" in interactive mode;
wenzelm@10944
  2598
wenzelm@11016
  2599
* Pure: 'thms_containing' now takes actual terms as arguments;
wenzelm@11016
  2600
wenzelm@10401
  2601
* HOL: improved method 'induct' --- now handles non-atomic goals
wenzelm@10401
  2602
(potential INCOMPATIBILITY); tuned error handling;
wenzelm@10401
  2603
wenzelm@10557
  2604
* HOL: cases and induct rules now provide explicit hints about the
wenzelm@10547
  2605
number of facts to be consumed (0 for "type" and 1 for "set" rules);
wenzelm@10547
  2606
any remaining facts are inserted into the goal verbatim;
wenzelm@10547
  2607
wenzelm@10858
  2608
* HOL: local contexts (aka cases) may now contain term bindings as
wenzelm@10858
  2609
well; the 'cases' and 'induct' methods new provide a ?case binding for
wenzelm@10858
  2610
the result to be shown in each case;
wenzelm@10858
  2611
wenzelm@10770
  2612
* HOL: added 'recdef_tc' command;
wenzelm@10770
  2613
wenzelm@11016
  2614
* isatool convert assists in eliminating legacy ML scripts;

*** HOL ***
wenzelm@10245
  2618
wenzelm@10245
  2619
* HOL/Library: a collection of generic theories to be used together
wenzelm@10245
  2620
with main HOL; the theory loader path already includes this directory
wenzelm@10245
  2621
by default; the following existing theories have been moved here:
wenzelm@10245
  2622
HOL/Induct/Multiset, HOL/Induct/Acc (as Accessible_Part), HOL/While
wenzelm@10337
  2623
(as While_Combinator), HOL/Lex/Prefix (as List_Prefix);
wenzelm@10245
  2624
wenzelm@10966
  2625
* HOL/Unix: "Some aspects of Unix file-system security", a typical
wenzelm@10966
  2626
modelling and verification task performed in Isabelle/HOL +
wenzelm@10966
  2627
Isabelle/Isar + Isabelle document preparation (by Markus Wenzel).
wenzelm@10966
  2628
wenzelm@11094
  2629
* HOL/Algebra: special summation operator SUM no longer exists, it has
wenzelm@11094
  2630
been replaced by setsum; infix 'assoc' now has priority 50 (like
wenzelm@11094
  2631
'dvd'); axiom 'one_not_zero' has been moved from axclass 'ring' to
wenzelm@11094
  2632
'domain', this makes the theory consistent with mathematical
wenzelm@11094
  2633
literature;
wenzelm@11094
  2634
wenzelm@10514
  2635
* HOL basics: added overloaded operations "inverse" and "divide"
wenzelm@10726
  2636
(infix "/"), syntax for generic "abs" operation, generic summation
wenzelm@11094
  2637
operator \<Sum>;
wenzelm@10452
  2638
wenzelm@10391
  2639
* HOL/typedef: simplified package, provide more useful rules (see also
wenzelm@10391
  2640
HOL/subset.thy);
wenzelm@10391
  2641
wenzelm@10915
  2642
* HOL/datatype: induction rule for arbitrarily branching datatypes is
wenzelm@10915
  2643
now expressed as a proper nested rule (old-style tactic scripts may
wenzelm@10915
  2644
require atomize_strip_tac to cope with non-atomic premises);
wenzelm@10915
  2645
wenzelm@10915
  2646
* HOL: renamed theory "Prod" to "Product_Type", renamed "split" rule
wenzelm@10915
  2647
to "split_conv" (old name still available for compatibility);
wenzelm@10915
  2648
wenzelm@10915
  2649
* HOL: improved concrete syntax for strings (e.g. allows translation
wenzelm@10915
  2650
rules with string literals);
wenzelm@10915
  2651
paulson@12245
  2652
* HOL-Real-Hyperreal: this extends HOL-Real with the hyperreals
paulson@12245
  2653
 and Fleuriot's mechanization of analysis, including the transcendental
paulson@12245
  2654
 functions for the reals;

  2661
* CTT: x-symbol support for Pi, Sigma, -->, : (membership); note that
wenzelm@10547
  2662
"lam" is displayed as TWO lambda-symbols
paulson@10474
  2663
wenzelm@10547
  2664
* CTT: theory Main now available, containing everything (that is, Bool
wenzelm@10547
  2665
and Arith);

*** General ***

  2670
* Pure: the Simplifier has been implemented properly as a derived rule
wenzelm@10547
  2671
outside of the actual kernel (at last!); the overall performance
wenzelm@10547
  2672
penalty in practical applications is about 50%, while reliability of
wenzelm@10547
  2673
the Isabelle inference kernel has been greatly improved;
wenzelm@10547
  2674
wenzelm@11112
  2675
* print modes "brackets" and "no_brackets" control output of nested =>
wenzelm@11112
  2676
(types) and ==> (props); the default behaviour is "brackets";
wenzelm@11112
  2677
wenzelm@10391
  2678
* Provers: fast_tac (and friends) now handle actual object-logic rules
wenzelm@10391
  2679
as assumptions as well;
wenzelm@10391
  2680
wenzelm@11124
  2681
* system: support Poly/ML 4.0;
wenzelm@11124
  2682
wenzelm@11124
  2683
* system: isatool install handles KDE version 1 or 2;

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES ***
paulson@8014
  2691
wenzelm@8848
  2692
* HOL: simplification of natural numbers is much changed; to partly
wenzelm@8848
  2693
recover the old behaviour (e.g. to prevent n+n rewriting to #2*n)
wenzelm@8848
  2694
issue the following ML commands:
wenzelm@8848
  2695
wenzelm@8848
  2696
  Delsimprocs Nat_Numeral_Simprocs.cancel_numerals;
wenzelm@8848
  2697
  Delsimprocs [Nat_Numeral_Simprocs.combine_numerals];
paulson@8788
  2698
wenzelm@10129
  2699
* HOL: simplification no longer dives into case-expressions; this is
wenzelm@10129
  2700
controlled by "t.weak_case_cong" for each datatype t;
wenzelm@10003
  2701
wenzelm@10003
  2702
* HOL: nat_less_induct renamed to less_induct;
wenzelm@10003
  2703
wenzelm@10003
  2704
* HOL: systematic renaming of the SOME (Eps) rules, may use isatool
wenzelm@10003
  2705
fixsome to patch .thy and .ML sources automatically;
