wenzelm@20807

New in this Isabelle version
wenzelm@17754
     5
----------------------------
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@21735
    18
* Theory syntax: some popular names (e.g. "class", "fun", "help",
wenzelm@21735
    19
"if") are now 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@20370
    31
* The ``prems limit'' option (cf. ProofContext.prems_limit) is now -1
wenzelm@20370
    32
by default, which means that "prems" (and also "fixed variables") are
wenzelm@20370
    33
suppressed from proof state output.  Note that the ProofGeneral
wenzelm@20370
    34
settings mechanism allows to change and save options persistently, but
wenzelm@20370
    35
older versions of Isabelle will fail to start up if a negative prems
wenzelm@20370
    36
limit is imposed.
wenzelm@20370
    37
wenzelm@21308
    38
* Local theory targets may be specified by non-nested blocks of
wenzelm@21308
    39
``context/locale/class ... begin'' followed by ``end''.  The body may
wenzelm@21308
    40
contain definitions, theorems etc., including any derived mechanism
wenzelm@21308
    41
that has been implemented on top of these primitives.  This concept
wenzelm@21308
    42
generalizes the existing ``theorem (in ...)'' towards more versatility
wenzelm@21308
    43
and scalability.
wenzelm@21308
    44
wenzelm@21960
    45
* Proof General interface: proper undo of final 'end' command;
wenzelm@21960
    46
discontinued Isabelle/classic mode (ML proof scripts).
wenzelm@21960
    47
wenzelm@17754

wenzelm@17865
    49
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@17865
    50
wenzelm@21717
    51
* Added antiquotation @{theory name} which prints the given name,
wenzelm@21717
    52
after checking that it refers to a valid ancestor theory in the
wenzelm@21717
    53
current context.
haftmann@21339
    54
wenzelm@17869
    55
* Added antiquotations @{ML_type text} and @{ML_struct text} which
wenzelm@17869
    56
check the given source text as ML type/structure, printing verbatim.
wenzelm@17865
    57
wenzelm@21717
    58
* Added antiquotation @{abbrev "c args"} which prints the abbreviation
wenzelm@21717
    59
"c args == rhs" given in the current context.  (Any number of
wenzelm@21735
    60
arguments may be given on the LHS.)
wenzelm@21717
    61
wenzelm@21717
    62
wenzelm@17865
    63
wenzelm@17779
    64
*** Pure ***
wenzelm@17779
    65
wenzelm@20807
    66
* class_package.ML offers a combination of axclasses and locales to
wenzelm@20807
    67
achieve Haskell-like type classes in Isabelle. See
wenzelm@20807
    68
HOL/ex/Classpackage.thy for examples.
wenzelm@20807
    69
wenzelm@20807
    70
* Yet another code generator framework allows to generate executable
wenzelm@20807
    71
code for ML and Haskell (including "class"es). A short usage sketch:
haftmann@20188
    72
haftmann@20188
    73
    internal compilation:
haftmann@21545
    74
        code_gen <list of constants (term syntax)> (SML #)
haftmann@20453
    75
    writing SML code to a file:
haftmann@20453
    76
        code_gen <list of constants (term syntax)> (SML <filename>)
haftmann@20188
    77
    writing Haskell code to a bunch of files:
haftmann@20453
    78
        code_gen <list of constants (term syntax)> (Haskell <filename>)
haftmann@20453
    79
haftmann@20453
    80
Reasonable default setup of framework in HOL/Main.
haftmann@20453
    81
haftmann@20453
    82
Theorem attributs for selecting and transforming function equations theorems:
haftmann@20453
    83
haftmann@20453
    84
    [code fun]:       select a theorem as function equation for a specific constant
haftmann@20453
    85
    [code nofun]:     deselect a theorem as function equation for a specific constant
haftmann@20453
    86
    [code inline]:    select an equation theorem for unfolding (inlining) in place
haftmann@20453
    87
    [code noinline]:  deselect an equation theorem for unfolding (inlining) in place
haftmann@20453
    88
haftmann@20453
    89
User-defined serializations (target in {SML, Haskell}):
haftmann@20453
    90
haftmann@20453
    91
    code_const <and-list of constants (term syntax)>
haftmann@20453
    92
      {(target) <and-list of const target syntax>}+
haftmann@20453
    93
haftmann@20453
    94
    code_type <and-list of type constructors>
haftmann@20453
    95
      {(target) <and-list of type target syntax>}+
haftmann@20453
    96
haftmann@20453
    97
    code_instance <and-list of instances>
haftmann@20453
    98
      {(target)}+
haftmann@20453
    99
        where instance ::= <type constructor> :: <class>
haftmann@20453
   100
haftmann@20453
   101
    code_class <and_list of classes>
haftmann@20453
   102
      {(target) <and-list of class target syntax>}+
haftmann@20453
   103
        where class target syntax ::= <class name> {where {<classop> == <target syntax>}+}?
haftmann@20453
   104
haftmann@20453
   105
For code_instance and code_class, target SML is silently ignored.
haftmann@20453
   106
haftmann@21215
   107
See HOL theories and HOL/ex/Code*.thy for usage examples.  Doc/Isar/Advanced/Codegen/
haftmann@21215
   108
provides a tutorial.
haftmann@20188
   109
wenzelm@19254
   110
* Command 'no_translations' removes translation rules from theory
wenzelm@19254
   111
syntax.
wenzelm@19254
   112
wenzelm@19625
   113
* Overloaded definitions are now actually checked for acyclic
wenzelm@19714
   114
dependencies.  The overloading scheme is slightly more general than
wenzelm@19714
   115
that of Haskell98, although Isabelle does not demand an exact
wenzelm@19714
   116
correspondence to type class and instance declarations.
wenzelm@19714
   117
INCOMPATIBILITY, use ``defs (unchecked overloaded)'' to admit more
wenzelm@19714
   118
exotic versions of overloading -- at the discretion of the user!
wenzelm@19711
   119
wenzelm@19711
   120
Polymorphic constants are represented via type arguments, i.e. the
wenzelm@19711
   121
instantiation that matches an instance against the most general
wenzelm@19711
   122
declaration given in the signature.  For example, with the declaration
wenzelm@19711
   123
c :: 'a => 'a => 'a, an instance c :: nat => nat => nat is represented
wenzelm@19711
   124
as c(nat).  Overloading is essentially simultaneous structural
wenzelm@19711
   125
recursion over such type arguments.  Incomplete specification patterns
wenzelm@19714
   126
impose global constraints on all occurrences, e.g. c('a * 'a) on the
wenzelm@19715
   127
LHS means that more general c('a * 'b) will be disallowed on any RHS.
wenzelm@19714
   128
Command 'print_theory' outputs the normalized system of recursive
wenzelm@19714
   129
equations, see section "definitions".
wenzelm@19625
   130
wenzelm@17865
   131
* Isar: improper proof element 'guess' is like 'obtain', but derives
wenzelm@17865
   132
the obtained context from the course of reasoning!  For example:
wenzelm@17865
   133
wenzelm@17865
   134
  assume "EX x y. A x & B y"   -- "any previous fact"
wenzelm@17865
   135
  then guess x and y by clarify
wenzelm@17865
   136
wenzelm@17865
   137
This technique is potentially adventurous, depending on the facts and
wenzelm@17865
   138
proof tools being involved here.
wenzelm@17865
   139
wenzelm@18020
   140
* Isar: known facts from the proof context may be specified as literal
wenzelm@18020
   141
propositions, using ASCII back-quote syntax.  This works wherever
wenzelm@18020
   142
named facts used to be allowed so far, in proof commands, proof
wenzelm@18020
   143
methods, attributes etc.  Literal facts are retrieved from the context
wenzelm@18020
   144
according to unification of type and term parameters.  For example,
wenzelm@18020
   145
provided that "A" and "A ==> B" and "!!x. P x ==> Q x" are known
wenzelm@18020
   146
theorems in the current context, then these are valid literal facts:
wenzelm@18020
   147
`A` and `A ==> B` and `!!x. P x ==> Q x" as well as `P a ==> Q a` etc.
wenzelm@18020
   148
wenzelm@18020
   149
There is also a proof method "fact" which does the same composition
wenzelm@18044
   150
for explicit goal states, e.g. the following proof texts coincide with
wenzelm@18044
   151
certain special cases of literal facts:
wenzelm@18020
   152
wenzelm@18020
   153
  have "A" by fact                 ==  note `A`
wenzelm@18020
   154
  have "A ==> B" by fact           ==  note `A ==> B`
wenzelm@18020
   155
  have "!!x. P x ==> Q x" by fact  ==  note `!!x. P x ==> Q x`
wenzelm@18020
   156
  have "P a ==> Q a" by fact       ==  note `P a ==> Q a`
wenzelm@18020
   157
wenzelm@20118
   158
* Isar: ":" (colon) is no longer a symbolic identifier character in
wenzelm@20118
   159
outer syntax.  Thus symbolic identifiers may be used without
wenzelm@20118
   160
additional white space in declarations like this: ``assume *: A''.
wenzelm@20118
   161
wenzelm@20013
   162
* Isar: 'print_facts' prints all local facts of the current context,
wenzelm@20013
   163
both named and unnamed ones.
wenzelm@20013
   164
wenzelm@18308
   165
* Isar: 'def' now admits simultaneous definitions, e.g.:
wenzelm@18308
   166
wenzelm@18308
   167
  def x == "t" and y == "u"
wenzelm@18308
   168
wenzelm@18540
   169
* Isar: added command 'unfolding', which is structurally similar to
wenzelm@18540
   170
'using', but affects both the goal state and facts by unfolding given
wenzelm@18815
   171
rewrite rules.  Thus many occurrences of the 'unfold' method or
wenzelm@18540
   172
'unfolded' attribute may be replaced by first-class proof text.
wenzelm@18540
   173
wenzelm@18815
   174
* Isar: methods 'unfold' / 'fold', attributes 'unfolded' / 'folded',
wenzelm@18815
   175
and command 'unfolding' now all support object-level equalities
wenzelm@18815
   176
(potentially conditional).  The underlying notion of rewrite rule is
wenzelm@18815
   177
analogous to the 'rule_format' attribute, but *not* that of the
wenzelm@18815
   178
Simplifier (which is usually more generous).
wenzelm@18815
   179
wenzelm@19220
   180
* Isar: the goal restriction operator [N] (default N = 1) evaluates a
wenzelm@19220
   181
method expression within a sandbox consisting of the first N
wenzelm@19240
   182
sub-goals, which need to exist.  For example, ``simp_all [3]''
wenzelm@19240
   183
simplifies the first three sub-goals, while (rule foo, simp_all)[]
wenzelm@19240
   184
simplifies all new goals that emerge from applying rule foo to the
wenzelm@19240
   185
originally first one.
wenzelm@19220
   186
wenzelm@19814
   187
* Isar: schematic goals are no longer restricted to higher-order
wenzelm@19814
   188
patterns; e.g. ``lemma "?P(?x)" by (rule TrueI)'' now works as
wenzelm@19814
   189
expected.
wenzelm@19814
   190
wenzelm@18901
   191
* Isar: the conclusion of a long theorem statement is now either
wenzelm@18901
   192
'shows' (a simultaneous conjunction, as before), or 'obtains'
wenzelm@18901
   193
(essentially a disjunction of cases with local parameters and
wenzelm@18901
   194
assumptions).  The latter allows to express general elimination rules
wenzelm@18910
   195
adequately; in this notation common elimination rules look like this:
wenzelm@18901
   196
wenzelm@18901
   197
  lemma exE:    -- "EX x. P x ==> (!!x. P x ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
   198
    assumes "EX x. P x"
wenzelm@18901
   199
    obtains x where "P x"
wenzelm@18901
   200
wenzelm@18901
   201
  lemma conjE:  -- "A & B ==> (A ==> B ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
   202
    assumes "A & B"
wenzelm@18901
   203
    obtains A and B
wenzelm@18901
   204
wenzelm@18901
   205
  lemma disjE:  -- "A | B ==> (A ==> thesis) ==> (B ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
   206
    assumes "A | B"
wenzelm@18901
   207
    obtains
wenzelm@18901
   208
      A
wenzelm@18901
   209
    | B
wenzelm@18901
   210
wenzelm@18910
   211
The subsequent classical rules even refer to the formal "thesis"
wenzelm@18901
   212
explicitly:
wenzelm@18901
   213
wenzelm@18901
   214
  lemma classical:     -- "(~ thesis ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
   215
    obtains "~ thesis"
wenzelm@18901
   216
wenzelm@18910
   217
  lemma Peirce's_Law:  -- "((thesis ==> something) ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18910
   218
    obtains "thesis ==> something"
wenzelm@18901
   219
wenzelm@18901
   220
The actual proof of an 'obtains' statement is analogous to that of the
wenzelm@18910
   221
Isar proof element 'obtain', only that there may be several cases.
wenzelm@18910
   222
Optional case names may be specified in parentheses; these will be
wenzelm@18910
   223
available both in the present proof and as annotations in the
wenzelm@18910
   224
resulting rule, for later use with the 'cases' method (cf. attribute
wenzelm@18910
   225
case_names).
wenzelm@18901
   226
wenzelm@21447
   227
* Isar: the assumptions of a long theorem statement are available as
wenzelm@21447
   228
"assms" fact in the proof context.  This is more appropriate than the
wenzelm@21447
   229
(historical) "prems", which refers to all assumptions of the current
wenzelm@21447
   230
context, including those from the target locale, proof body etc.
wenzelm@21447
   231
wenzelm@19263
   232
* Isar: 'print_statement' prints theorems from the current theory or
wenzelm@19263
   233
proof context in long statement form, according to the syntax of a
wenzelm@19263
   234
top-level lemma.
wenzelm@19263
   235
wenzelm@18901
   236
* Isar: 'obtain' takes an optional case name for the local context
wenzelm@18901
   237
introduction rule (default "that").
wenzelm@18901
   238
wenzelm@19587
   239
* Isar: removed obsolete 'concl is' patterns.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use
wenzelm@19587
   240
explicit (is "_ ==> ?foo") in the rare cases where this still happens
wenzelm@19587
   241
to occur.
wenzelm@19587
   242
wenzelm@19682
   243
* Pure: syntax "CONST name" produces a fully internalized constant
wenzelm@19682
   244
according to the current context.  This is particularly useful for
wenzelm@19682
   245
syntax translations that should refer to internal constant
wenzelm@19682
   246
representations independently of name spaces.
wenzelm@19682
   247
wenzelm@21537
   248
* Pure: syntax constant for foo (binder "FOO ") is called "foo_binder"
wenzelm@21537
   249
instead of "FOO ". This allows multiple binder declarations to coexist
wenzelm@21537
   250
in the same context.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@21537
   251
wenzelm@21209
   252
* Isar/locales: 'notation' provides a robust interface to the 'syntax'
wenzelm@21209
   253
primitive that also works in a locale context (both for constants and
wenzelm@21209
   254
fixed variables).  Type declaration and internal syntactic
wenzelm@21209
   255
representation of given constants retrieved from the context.
wenzelm@19682
   256
wenzelm@19665
   257
* Isar/locales: new derived specification elements 'axiomatization',
wenzelm@19665
   258
'definition', 'abbreviation', which support type-inference, admit
wenzelm@19083
   259
object-level specifications (equality, equivalence).  See also the
wenzelm@19083
   260
isar-ref manual.  Examples:
wenzelm@19081
   261
wenzelm@19665
   262
  axiomatization
wenzelm@21595
   263
    eq  (infix "===" 50) where

These specifications may be also used in a locale context.  Then the
wenzelm@19083
   274
constants being introduced depend on certain fixed parameters, and the
wenzelm@19083
   275
constant name is qualified by the locale base name.  An internal
wenzelm@19083
   276
abbreviation takes care for convenient input and output, making the
wenzelm@19088
   277
parameters implicit and using the original short name.  See also
wenzelm@19083
   278
HOL/ex/Abstract_NAT.thy for an example of deriving polymorphic
wenzelm@19083
   279
entities from a monomorphic theory.
wenzelm@19083
   280
wenzelm@19083
   281
Presently, abbreviations are only available 'in' a target locale, but
wenzelm@19363
   282
not inherited by general import expressions.  Also note that
wenzelm@19363
   283
'abbreviation' may be used as a type-safe replacement for 'syntax' +
wenzelm@19363
   284
'translations' in common applications.
wenzelm@19084
   285
wenzelm@19682
   286
Concrete syntax is attached to specified constants in internal form,
wenzelm@19682
   287
independently of name spaces.  The parse tree representation is
wenzelm@21209
   288
slightly different -- use 'notation' instead of raw 'syntax', and
wenzelm@19682
   289
'translations' with explicit "CONST" markup to accommodate this.
wenzelm@19665
   290
wenzelm@21735
   291
* Pure: command 'print_abbrevs' prints all constant abbreviations of
wenzelm@21735
   292
the current context.  Print mode "no_abbrevs" prevents inversion of
wenzelm@21735
   293
abbreviations on output.

ballarin@19783
   295
* Isar/locales: improved parameter handling:
ballarin@19783
   296
- use of locales "var" and "struct" no longer necessary;
ballarin@19783
   297
- parameter renamings are no longer required to be injective.
ballarin@19783
   298
  This enables, for example, to define a locale for endomorphisms thus:
ballarin@19783
   299
  locale endom = homom mult mult h.
ballarin@19783
   300
ballarin@19931
   301
* Isar/locales: changed the way locales with predicates are defined.
ballarin@19931
   302
Instead of accumulating the specification, the imported expression is
wenzelm@22126
   303
now an interpretation.  INCOMPATIBILITY: different normal form of
wenzelm@22126
   304
locale expressions.  In particular, in interpretations of locales with
wenzelm@22126
   305
predicates, goals repesenting already interpreted fragments are not
wenzelm@22126
   306
removed automatically.  Use methods `intro_locales' and
wenzelm@22126
   307
`unfold_locales'; see below.
wenzelm@22126
   308
wenzelm@22126
   309
* Isar/locales: new methods `intro_locales' and `unfold_locales'
wenzelm@22126
   310
provide backward reasoning on locales predicates.  The methods are
wenzelm@22126
   311
aware of interpretations and discharge corresponding goals.
wenzelm@22126
   312
`intro_locales' is less aggressive then `unfold_locales' and does not
wenzelm@22126
   313
unfold predicates to assumptions.
ballarin@19931
   314
ballarin@19931
   315
* Isar/locales: the order in which locale fragments are accumulated
wenzelm@22126
   316
has changed.  This enables to override declarations from fragments due
wenzelm@22126
   317
to interpretations -- for example, unwanted simp rules.
ballarin@19931
   318
wenzelm@18233
   319
* Provers/induct: improved internal context management to support
wenzelm@18233
   320
local fixes and defines on-the-fly.  Thus explicit meta-level
wenzelm@18233
   321
connectives !! and ==> are rarely required anymore in inductive goals
wenzelm@18233
   322
(using object-logic connectives for this purpose has been long
wenzelm@18233
   323
obsolete anyway).  The subsequent proof patterns illustrate advanced
wenzelm@18233
   324
techniques of natural induction; general datatypes and inductive sets
wenzelm@18267

work analogously (see also src/HOL/Lambda for realistic examples).

Here the 'arbitrary: thesis' specification essentially modifies the

scope of the formal thesis parameter, in order to the get the whole
wenzelm@18267
   381
existence statement through the induction as expected.
wenzelm@18233

wenzelm@18506
   383
* Provers/induct: mutual induction rules are now specified as a list
wenzelm@18506
   384
of rule sharing the same induction cases.  HOL packages usually
wenzelm@18506
   385
provide foo_bar.inducts for mutually defined items foo and bar
wenzelm@18506
   386
(e.g. inductive sets or datatypes).  INCOMPATIBILITY, users need to
wenzelm@18506
   387
specify mutual induction rules differently, i.e. like this:
wenzelm@18506
   388
wenzelm@18506
   389
  (induct rule: foo_bar.inducts)
wenzelm@18506

The ML function ProjectRule.projections turns old-style rules into the
wenzelm@18506
   394
new format.
wenzelm@18506
   395
wenzelm@18506
   396
* Provers/induct: improved handling of simultaneous goals.  Instead of
wenzelm@18506
   397
introducing object-level conjunction, the statement is now split into
wenzelm@18506
   398
several conclusions, while the corresponding symbolic cases are
wenzelm@18601
   399
nested accordingly.  INCOMPATIBILITY, proofs need to be structured
wenzelm@18601

If simultaneous goals are to be used with mutual rules, the statement

wenzelm@22126
   472
default. Thus there is less danger of being flooded by the trace. The

* axclass "semiring_0" now contains annihilation axioms x * 0 = 0 and
wenzelm@22126
   539
0 * x = 0, which are required for a semiring.  Richer structures do
wenzelm@22126
   540
not inherit from semiring_0 anymore, because this property is a
wenzelm@22126
   541
theorem there, not an axiom.  INCOMPATIBILITY: In instances of
wenzelm@22126
   542
semiring_0, there is more to prove, but this is mostly trivial.
wenzelm@22126
   543
wenzelm@22126
   544
* axclass "recpower" was generalized to arbitrary monoids, not just
wenzelm@22126
   545
commutative semirings.  INCOMPATIBILITY: If you use recpower and need
wenzelm@22126
   546
commutativity or a semiring property, add the corresponding classes.
wenzelm@22126
   547
wenzelm@22126
   548
* Unified locale partial_order with class definition (cf. theory
wenzelm@22126

   551
* Constant "List.list_all2" in List.thy now uses authentic syntax.
wenzelm@22126
   552
INCOMPATIBILITY: translations containing list_all2 may go wrong.  On

wenzelm@22126

* Numeral syntax: type 'bin' which was a mere type copy of 'int' has
wenzelm@22126
   566
been abandoned in favour of plain 'int'. INCOMPATIBILITY --
wenzelm@22126
   567
significant changes for setting up numeral syntax for types:
haftmann@20485
   568
haftmann@20485
   569
  - new constants Numeral.pred and Numeral.succ instead
haftmann@20485
   570
      of former Numeral.bin_pred and Numeral.bin_succ.
haftmann@20485
   571
  - Use integer operations instead of bin_add, bin_mult and so on.
haftmann@20485
   572
  - Numeral simplification theorems named Numeral.numeral_simps instead of Bin_simps.
haftmann@20485
   573
  - ML structure Bin_Simprocs now named Int_Numeral_Base_Simprocs.
haftmann@20485
   574
haftmann@20485
   575
See HOL/Integ/IntArith.thy for an example setup.
haftmann@20485
   576
wenzelm@22126
   577
* New top level command 'normal_form' computes the normal form of a
wenzelm@22126
   578
term that may contain free variables. For example ``normal_form
wenzelm@22126
   579
"rev[a,b,c]"'' produces ``[b,c,a]'' (without proof).  This command is
wenzelm@22126
   580
suitable for heavy-duty computations because the functions are
wenzelm@22126
   581
compiled to ML first.
nipkow@19895
   582
wenzelm@17996
   583
* Alternative iff syntax "A <-> B" for equality on bool (with priority
wenzelm@17996
   584
25 like -->); output depends on the "iff" print_mode, the default is
wenzelm@17996
   585
"A = B" (with priority 50).
wenzelm@17996
   586
ballarin@19279
   587
* Renamed constants in HOL.thy and Orderings.thy:
haftmann@19233
   588
    op +   ~> HOL.plus
haftmann@19233
   589
    op -   ~> HOL.minus
haftmann@19233
   590
    uminus ~> HOL.uminus
haftmann@19233

    op *   ~> HOL.times
haftmann@19277
   592
    op <   ~> Orderings.less
haftmann@19277
   593
    op <=  ~> Orderings.less_eq
haftmann@19233
   594
haftmann@19233
   595
Adaptions may be required in the following cases:
haftmann@19233
   596
nipkow@19377
   597
a) User-defined constants using any of the names "plus", "minus", "times",
nipkow@19377
   598
"less" or "less_eq". The standard syntax translations for "+", "-" and "*"
nipkow@19377
   599
may go wrong.
haftmann@19233
   600
INCOMPATIBILITY: use more specific names.
haftmann@19233
   601
haftmann@19277
   602
b) Variables named "plus", "minus", "times", "less", "less_eq"
haftmann@19233
   603
INCOMPATIBILITY: use more specific names.
haftmann@19233
   604
nipkow@19377
   605
c) Permutative equations (e.g. "a + b = b + a")
nipkow@19377
   606
Since the change of names also changes the order of terms, permutative
nipkow@19377
   607
rewrite rules may get applied in a different order. Experience shows that
nipkow@19377
   608
this is rarely the case (only two adaptions in the whole Isabelle
nipkow@19377
   609
distribution).
nipkow@19377
   610
INCOMPATIBILITY: rewrite proofs
haftmann@19233
   611
haftmann@19233
   612
d) ML code directly refering to constant names
haftmann@19233
   613
This in general only affects hand-written proof tactics, simprocs and so on.
haftmann@19233
   614
INCOMPATIBILITY: grep your sourcecode and replace names.
haftmann@19233
   615
wenzelm@21265
   616
* Relations less (<) and less_eq (<=) are also available on type bool.
wenzelm@21265
   617
Modified syntax to disallow nesting without explicit parentheses,
wenzelm@21265
   618
e.g. "(x < y) < z" or "x < (y < z)", but NOT "x < y < z".
wenzelm@21265
   619
nipkow@18674
   620
* "LEAST x:A. P" expands to "LEAST x. x:A & P" (input only).
nipkow@18674
   621
krauss@20716
   622
* Relation composition operator "op O" now has precedence 75 and binds
krauss@20716
   623
stronger than union and intersection. INCOMPATIBILITY.
krauss@20716
   624
wenzelm@22126
   625
* The old set interval syntax "{m..n(}" (and relatives) has been
wenzelm@22126
   626
removed.  Use "{m..<n}" (and relatives) instead.
nipkow@19377
   627
wenzelm@17865
   628
* In the context of the assumption "~(s = t)" the Simplifier rewrites
wenzelm@17865
   629
"t = s" to False (by simproc "neq_simproc").  For backward
wenzelm@17865
   630
compatibility this can be disabled by ML "reset use_neq_simproc".
wenzelm@17779
   631
wenzelm@22126
   632
* "m dvd n" where m and n are numbers is evaluated to True/False by
wenzelm@22126
   633
simp.
wenzelm@22126
   634
wenzelm@22126
   635
* Theorem Cons_eq_map_conv no longer declared as ``simp''.
nipkow@19211
   636
ballarin@19279
   637
* Theorem setsum_mult renamed to setsum_right_distrib.
ballarin@19279
   638
nipkow@19211
   639
* Prefer ex1I over ex_ex1I in single-step reasoning, e.g. by the
wenzelm@22126
   640
``rule'' method.
wenzelm@22126
   641
wenzelm@22126
   642
* Reimplemented methods ``sat'' and ``satx'', with several
wenzelm@22126
   643
improvements: goals no longer need to be stated as "<prems> ==>
wenzelm@22126
   644
False", equivalences (i.e. "=" on type bool) are handled, variable
wenzelm@22126
   645
names of the form "lit_<n>" are no longer reserved, significant
wenzelm@22126
   646
speedup.
wenzelm@22126
   647
wenzelm@22126
   648
* Methods ``sat'' and ``satx'' can now replay MiniSat proof traces.
wenzelm@22126
   649
zChaff is still supported as well.
wenzelm@22126
   650
wenzelm@22126
   651
* 'inductive' and 'datatype': provide projections of mutual rules,
wenzelm@22126
   652
bundled as foo_bar.inducts;
wenzelm@22126
   653
wenzelm@22126
   654
* Library: moved theories Parity, GCD, Binomial, Infinite_Set to
wenzelm@22126
   655
Library.
wenzelm@21256
   656
wenzelm@21256
   657
* Library: moved theory Accessible_Part to main HOL.
wenzelm@19572
   658
wenzelm@18446
   659
* Library: added theory Coinductive_List of potentially infinite lists
wenzelm@18446
   660
as greatest fixed-point.
wenzelm@18399
   661
wenzelm@19254
   662
* Library: added theory AssocList which implements (finite) maps as
schirmer@19252
   663
association lists.
webertj@17809
   664
wenzelm@22126
   665
* Added proof method ``evaluation'' for efficiently solving a goal
wenzelm@22126
   666
(i.e. a boolean expression) by compiling it to ML. The goal is
wenzelm@22126
   667
"proved" (via an oracle) if it evaluates to True.
wenzelm@20807
   668
wenzelm@20807
   669
* Linear arithmetic now splits certain operators (e.g. min, max, abs)
wenzelm@20807
   670
also when invoked by the simplifier.  This results in the simplifier
haftmann@21056
   671
being more powerful on arithmetic goals.  INCOMPATIBILITY.  Set
wenzelm@20807
   672
fast_arith_split_limit to 0 to obtain the old behavior.
webertj@20217
   673
wenzelm@22126
   674
* Support for hex (0x20) and binary (0b1001) numerals.
wenzelm@19254
   675
wenzelm@20807
   676
* New method: reify eqs (t), where eqs are equations for an
wenzelm@20807
   677
interpretation I :: 'a list => 'b => 'c and t::'c is an optional
wenzelm@20807
   678
parameter, computes a term s::'b and a list xs::'a list and proves the
wenzelm@20807
   679
theorem I xs s = t. This is also known as reification or quoting. The
wenzelm@20807
   680
resulting theorem is applied to the subgoal to substitute t with I xs
wenzelm@20807
   681
s.  If t is omitted, the subgoal itself is reified.
wenzelm@20807
   682
wenzelm@20807
   683
* New method: reflection corr_thm eqs (t). The parameters eqs and (t)
wenzelm@20807
   684
are as explained above. corr_thm is a theorem for I vs (f t) = I vs t,
wenzelm@20807
   685
where f is supposed to be a computable function (in the sense of code
wenzelm@20807
   686
generattion). The method uses reify to compute s and xs as above then
wenzelm@20807
   687
applies corr_thm and uses normalization by evaluation to "prove" f s =
wenzelm@20807
   688
r and finally gets the theorem t = r, which is again applied to the
wenzelm@20807
   689
subgoal. An Example is available in HOL/ex/ReflectionEx.thy.
wenzelm@20807

for linear arithmetic over the reals. The quantifier elimination
wenzelm@19653
   716
feature is used only for decision, for compatibility with arith. This

   797
list of values of the appropriate type". Compare this with "map" which
wenzelm@18540
   798
would *not* apply its argument function simulatanously but in
wenzelm@22126
   799
sequence; "fold_burrow" has an additional context.
haftmann@18450
   800
wenzelm@18446
   801
* Pure/library: functions map2 and fold2 with curried syntax for
wenzelm@18446
   802
simultanous mapping and folding:
wenzelm@18446
   803
haftmann@18422
   804
    val map2: ('a -> 'b -> 'c) -> 'a list -> 'b list -> 'c list
haftmann@18422
   805
    val fold2: ('a -> 'b -> 'c -> 'c) -> 'a list -> 'b list -> 'c -> 'c
haftmann@18422
   806
wenzelm@18446
   807
* Pure/library: indexed lists - some functions in the Isabelle library
wenzelm@18446
   808
treating lists over 'a as finite mappings from [0...n] to 'a have been
wenzelm@18446
   809
given more convenient names and signatures reminiscent of similar
wenzelm@18446
   810
functions for alists, tables, etc:
haftmann@18051
   811
haftmann@18051
   812
  val nth: 'a list -> int -> 'a 
haftmann@18051
   813
  val nth_map: int -> ('a -> 'a) -> 'a list -> 'a list
haftmann@18051
   814
  val fold_index: (int * 'a -> 'b -> 'b) -> 'a list -> 'b -> 'b
haftmann@18051
   815
wenzelm@18446
   816
Note that fold_index starts counting at index 0, not 1 like foldln
wenzelm@18446
   817
used to.
wenzelm@18446
   818
wenzelm@22126
   819
* Pure/library: added general ``divide_and_conquer'' combinator on
wenzelm@22126
   820
lists.
wenzelm@19032
   821
wenzelm@19032
   822
* Pure/General/table.ML: the join operations now works via exceptions
wenzelm@19081
   823
DUP/SAME instead of type option.  This is simpler in simple cases, and
wenzelm@19081
   824
admits slightly more efficient complex applications.
wenzelm@18446
   825
wenzelm@18642
   826
* Pure: datatype Context.generic joins theory/Proof.context and
wenzelm@18644
   827
provides some facilities for code that works in either kind of
wenzelm@18642
   828
context, notably GenericDataFun for uniform theory and proof data.
wenzelm@18642
   829
wenzelm@18862
   830
* Pure: 'advanced' translation functions (parse_translation etc.) now
wenzelm@18862
   831
use Context.generic instead of just theory.
wenzelm@18862
   832
wenzelm@18737
   833
* Pure: simplified internal attribute type, which is now always
wenzelm@18737
   834
Context.generic * thm -> Context.generic * thm.  Global (theory)
wenzelm@18737
   835
vs. local (Proof.context) attributes have been discontinued, while
wenzelm@18738
   836
minimizing code duplication.  Thm.rule_attribute and
wenzelm@18738
   837
Thm.declaration_attribute build canonical attributes; see also
wenzelm@19006
   838
structure Context for further operations on Context.generic, notably
wenzelm@19006
   839
GenericDataFun.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt attribute type
wenzelm@19006
   840
declarations and definitions.
wenzelm@19006
   841
wenzelm@19508
   842
* Pure/kernel: consts certification ignores sort constraints given in
wenzelm@19508
   843
signature declarations.  (This information is not relevant to the
wenzelm@22126
   844
logic, but only for type inference.)  IMPORTANT INTERNAL CHANGE,
wenzelm@22126
   845
potential INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@19508
   846
wenzelm@19508
   847
* Pure: axiomatic type classes are now purely definitional, with
wenzelm@19508
   848
explicit proofs of class axioms and super class relations performed
wenzelm@19508
   849
internally.  See Pure/axclass.ML for the main internal interfaces --
wenzelm@19508
   850
notably AxClass.define_class supercedes AxClass.add_axclass, and
wenzelm@19508
   851
AxClass.axiomatize_class/classrel/arity supercede
wenzelm@19508
   852
Sign.add_classes/classrel/arities.
wenzelm@19508
   853
wenzelm@19006
   854
* Pure/Isar: Args/Attrib parsers operate on Context.generic --
wenzelm@19006
   855
global/local versions on theory vs. Proof.context have been
wenzelm@19006
   856
discontinued; Attrib.syntax and Method.syntax have been adapted
wenzelm@19006
   857
accordingly.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt parser expressions for
wenzelm@19006
   858
attributes, methods, etc.
wenzelm@18642
   859
wenzelm@18446
   860
* Pure: several functions of signature "... -> theory -> theory * ..."
wenzelm@18446
   861
have been reoriented to "... -> theory -> ... * theory" in order to
wenzelm@18446
   862
allow natural usage in combination with the ||>, ||>>, |-> and
wenzelm@18446
   863
fold_map combinators.
haftmann@18051
   864
wenzelm@21647
   865
* Pure: official theorem names (closed derivations) and additional
wenzelm@21647
   866
comments (tags) are now strictly separate.  Name hints -- which are
wenzelm@21647
   867
maintained as tags -- may be attached any time without affecting the
wenzelm@21647
   868
derivation.
wenzelm@21647
   869
wenzelm@18020
   870
* Pure: primitive rule lift_rule now takes goal cterm instead of an
wenzelm@18145
   871
actual goal state (thm).  Use Thm.lift_rule (Thm.cprem_of st i) to
wenzelm@18020
   872
achieve the old behaviour.
wenzelm@18020
   873
wenzelm@18020
   874
* Pure: the "Goal" constant is now called "prop", supporting a
wenzelm@18020
   875
slightly more general idea of ``protecting'' meta-level rule
wenzelm@18020
   876
statements.
wenzelm@18020
   877
wenzelm@20040
   878
* Pure: Logic.(un)varify only works in a global context, which is now
wenzelm@20040
   879
enforced instead of silently assumed.  INCOMPATIBILITY, may use
wenzelm@20040
   880
Logic.legacy_(un)varify as temporary workaround.
wenzelm@20040
   881
wenzelm@20090
   882
* Pure: structure Name provides scalable operations for generating
wenzelm@20090
   883
internal variable names, notably Name.variants etc.  This replaces
wenzelm@20090
   884
some popular functions from term.ML:
wenzelm@20090
   885
wenzelm@20090
   886
  Term.variant		->  Name.variant
wenzelm@20090
   887
  Term.variantlist	->  Name.variant_list  (*canonical argument order*)
wenzelm@20090
   888
  Term.invent_names	->  Name.invent_list
wenzelm@20090
   889
wenzelm@20090
   890
Note that low-level renaming rarely occurs in new code -- operations
wenzelm@20090
   891
from structure Variable are used instead (see below).
wenzelm@20090
   892
wenzelm@20040
   893
* Pure: structure Variable provides fundamental operations for proper
wenzelm@20040
   894
treatment of fixed/schematic variables in a context.  For example,
wenzelm@20040
   895
Variable.import introduces fixes for schematics of given facts and
wenzelm@20040
   896
Variable.export reverses the effect (up to renaming) -- this replaces
wenzelm@20040
   897
various freeze_thaw operations.
wenzelm@20040
   898
wenzelm@18567
   899
* Pure: structure Goal provides simple interfaces for
wenzelm@17981
   900
init/conclude/finish and tactical prove operations (replacing former
wenzelm@20040
   901
Tactic.prove).  Goal.prove is the canonical way to prove results
wenzelm@20040
   902
within a given context; Goal.prove_global is a degraded version for
wenzelm@20040
   903
theory level goals, including a global Drule.standard.  Note that
wenzelm@20040
   904
OldGoals.prove_goalw_cterm has long been obsolete, since it is
wenzelm@20040
   905
ill-behaved in a local proof context (e.g. with local fixes/assumes or
wenzelm@20040
   906
in a locale context).
wenzelm@17981
   907
wenzelm@18815
   908
* Isar: simplified treatment of user-level errors, using exception
wenzelm@18687
   909
ERROR of string uniformly.  Function error now merely raises ERROR,
wenzelm@18686
   910
without any side effect on output channels.  The Isar toplevel takes
wenzelm@18686
   911
care of proper display of ERROR exceptions.  ML code may use plain
wenzelm@18686
   912
handle/can/try; cat_error may be used to concatenate errors like this:
wenzelm@18686
   913
wenzelm@18686
   914
  ... handle ERROR msg => cat_error msg "..."
wenzelm@18686
   915
wenzelm@18686
   916
Toplevel ML code (run directly or through the Isar toplevel) may be
wenzelm@18687
   917
embedded into the Isar toplevel with exception display/debug like
wenzelm@18687
   918
this:
wenzelm@18686
   919
wenzelm@18686
   920
  Isar.toplevel (fn () => ...)
wenzelm@18686
   921
wenzelm@18686
   922
INCOMPATIBILITY, removed special transform_error facilities, removed
wenzelm@18686
   923
obsolete variants of user-level exceptions (ERROR_MESSAGE,
wenzelm@18686
   924
Context.PROOF, ProofContext.CONTEXT, Proof.STATE, ProofHistory.FAIL)
wenzelm@18686
   925
-- use plain ERROR instead.
wenzelm@18686
   926
wenzelm@18815
   927
* Isar: theory setup now has type (theory -> theory), instead of a
wenzelm@18722
   928
list.  INCOMPATIBILITY, may use #> to compose setup functions.
wenzelm@18722
   929
wenzelm@18815
   930
* Isar: installed ML toplevel pretty printer for type Proof.context,
wenzelm@18815
   931
subject to ProofContext.debug/verbose flags.
wenzelm@18815
   932
wenzelm@18815
   933
* Isar: Toplevel.theory_to_proof admits transactions that modify the
wenzelm@18815
   934
theory before entering a proof state.  Transactions now always see a
wenzelm@18815
   935
quasi-functional intermediate checkpoint, both in interactive and
wenzelm@18590
   936
batch mode.
wenzelm@18567
   937
wenzelm@17878
   938
* Simplifier: the simpset of a running simplification process now
wenzelm@17878
   939
contains a proof context (cf. Simplifier.the_context), which is the
wenzelm@17878
   940
very context that the initial simpset has been retrieved from (by
wenzelm@17890
   941
simpset_of/local_simpset_of).  Consequently, all plug-in components
wenzelm@17878
   942
(solver, looper etc.) may depend on arbitrary proof data.
wenzelm@17878
   943
wenzelm@17878
   944
* Simplifier.inherit_context inherits the proof context (plus the
wenzelm@17878
   945
local bounds) of the current simplification process; any simproc
wenzelm@17878
   946
etc. that calls the Simplifier recursively should do this!  Removed
wenzelm@17878
   947
former Simplifier.inherit_bounds, which is already included here --
wenzelm@17890
   948
INCOMPATIBILITY.  Tools based on low-level rewriting may even have to
wenzelm@17890
   949
specify an explicit context using Simplifier.context/theory_context.
wenzelm@17878
   950
wenzelm@17878
   951
* Simplifier/Classical Reasoner: more abstract interfaces
wenzelm@17878
   952
change_simpset/claset for modifying the simpset/claset reference of a
wenzelm@17878
   953
theory; raw versions simpset/claset_ref etc. have been discontinued --
wenzelm@17878
   954
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17878
   955
wenzelm@18540
   956
* Provers: more generic wrt. syntax of object-logics, avoid hardwired
wenzelm@18540
   957
"Trueprop" etc.

This simplifies use of multiple Isabelle installations.

* Theory headers: the new header syntax for Isar theories is
nipkow@15130
   977
nipkow@15130
   978
  theory <name>
wenzelm@16234
   979
  imports <theory1> ... <theoryN>

nipkow@15130
   981
  begin
nipkow@15130
   982
wenzelm@16234
   983
where the 'uses' part is optional.  The previous syntax
wenzelm@16234
   984
wenzelm@16234
   985
  theory <name> = <theory1> + ... + <theoryN>:
wenzelm@16234
   986
wenzelm@16717
   987
will disappear in the next release.  Use isatool fixheaders to convert
wenzelm@16717
   988
existing theory files.  Note that there is no change in ancient
wenzelm@17371
   989
non-Isar theories now, but these will disappear soon.
nipkow@15130
   990
berghofe@15475
   991
* Theory loader: parent theories can now also be referred to via
wenzelm@16234
   992
relative and absolute paths.
wenzelm@16234
   993
wenzelm@17408
   994
* Command 'find_theorems' searches for a list of criteria instead of a
wenzelm@17408
   995
list of constants. Known criteria are: intro, elim, dest, name:string,
wenzelm@17408
   996
simp:term, and any term. Criteria can be preceded by '-' to select
wenzelm@17408
   997
theorems that do not match. Intro, elim, dest select theorems that
wenzelm@17408
   998
match the current goal, name:s selects theorems whose fully qualified
wenzelm@17408
   999
name contain s, and simp:term selects all simplification rules whose
wenzelm@17408
  1000
lhs match term.  Any other term is interpreted as pattern and selects
wenzelm@17408
  1001
all theorems matching the pattern. Available in ProofGeneral under
wenzelm@17408
  1002
'ProofGeneral -> Find Theorems' or C-c C-f.  Example:
wenzelm@16234
  1003
wenzelm@17275
  1004
  C-c C-f (100) "(_::nat) + _ + _" intro -name: "HOL."
wenzelm@16234
  1005
wenzelm@16234
  1006
prints the last 100 theorems matching the pattern "(_::nat) + _ + _",
wenzelm@16234
  1007
matching the current goal as introduction rule and not having "HOL."
wenzelm@16234
  1008
in their name (i.e. not being defined in theory HOL).
wenzelm@16013
  1009
wenzelm@17408

* Command 'thms_containing' has been discontinued in favour of
wenzelm@17408
  1011
'find_theorems'; INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17408
  1012
wenzelm@17385
  1013
* Communication with Proof General is now 8bit clean, which means that
wenzelm@17385
  1014
Unicode text in UTF-8 encoding may be used within theory texts (both
wenzelm@17408
  1015
formal and informal parts).  Cf. option -U of the Isabelle Proof
wenzelm@17538
  1016

*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@15703
  1027
wenzelm@16234
  1028
* Commands 'display_drafts' and 'print_drafts' perform simple output
wenzelm@16234
  1029
of raw sources.  Only those symbols that do not require additional
wenzelm@16234
  1030
LaTeX packages (depending on comments in isabellesym.sty) are
wenzelm@16234
  1031
displayed properly, everything else is left verbatim.  isatool display
wenzelm@16234
  1032
and isatool print are used as front ends (these are subject to the
wenzelm@16234
  1033
DVI/PDF_VIEWER and PRINT_COMMAND settings, respectively).
wenzelm@16234
  1034
wenzelm@17047
  1035
* Command tags control specific markup of certain regions of text,
wenzelm@17047
  1036
notably folding and hiding.  Predefined tags include "theory" (for
wenzelm@17047
  1037
theory begin and end), "proof" for proof commands, and "ML" for
wenzelm@17047
  1038
commands involving ML code; the additional tags "visible" and
wenzelm@17047
  1039
"invisible" are unused by default.  Users may give explicit tag
wenzelm@17047
  1040
specifications in the text, e.g. ''by %invisible (auto)''.  The
wenzelm@17047
  1041
interpretation of tags is determined by the LaTeX job during document
wenzelm@17047
  1042
preparation: see option -V of isatool usedir, or options -n and -t of
wenzelm@17047
  1043
isatool document, or even the LaTeX macros \isakeeptag, \isafoldtag,
wenzelm@17047
  1044
\isadroptag.
wenzelm@17047
  1045
wenzelm@17047
  1046
Several document versions may be produced at the same time via isatool
wenzelm@17047
  1047
usedir (the generated index.html will link all of them).  Typical
wenzelm@17047
  1048
specifications include ''-V document=theory,proof,ML'' to present
wenzelm@17047
  1049
theory/proof/ML parts faithfully, ''-V outline=/proof,/ML'' to fold
wenzelm@17047
  1050
proof and ML commands, and ''-V mutilated=-theory,-proof,-ML'' to omit
wenzelm@17047
  1051
these parts without any formal replacement text.  The Isabelle site
wenzelm@17047
  1052
default settings produce ''document'' and ''outline'' versions as
wenzelm@17047
  1053
specified above.

  @{term_type term} prints a term with its type annotated;
wenzelm@15979

  @{typeof term} prints the type of a term;
wenzelm@15979

wenzelm@16234
  1061
  @{const const} is the same as @{term const}, but checks that the
wenzelm@16234

  argument is a known logical constant;
wenzelm@15979
  1063
wenzelm@15979
  1064
  @{term_style style term} and @{thm_style style thm} print a term or

Predefined styles are 'lhs' and 'rhs' printing the lhs/rhs of
wenzelm@16234
  1070
definitions, equations, inequations etc., 'concl' printing only the
schirmer@17393
  1071
conclusion of a meta-logical statement theorem, and 'prem1' .. 'prem19'
wenzelm@16234
  1072
to print the specified premise.  TermStyle.add_style provides an ML
wenzelm@16234
  1073
interface for introducing further styles.  See also the "LaTeX Sugar"
wenzelm@17117
  1074
document practical applications.  The ML antiquotation prints
wenzelm@17117
  1075
type-checked ML expressions verbatim.
wenzelm@16234
  1076
wenzelm@17259
  1077
* Markup commands 'chapter', 'section', 'subsection', 'subsubsection',
wenzelm@17259
  1078
and 'text' support optional locale specification '(in loc)', which
wenzelm@17269
  1079
specifies the default context for interpreting antiquotations.  For
wenzelm@17269
  1080
example: 'text (in lattice) {* @{thm inf_assoc}*}'.
wenzelm@17259
  1081
wenzelm@17259
  1082
* Option 'locale=NAME' of antiquotations specifies an alternative
wenzelm@17259
  1083
context interpreting the subsequent argument.  For example: @{thm
wenzelm@17269
  1084
[locale=lattice] inf_assoc}.
wenzelm@17259
  1085
wenzelm@17097
  1086
* Proper output of proof terms (@{prf ...} and @{full_prf ...}) within
wenzelm@17097
  1087
a proof context.
wenzelm@17097
  1088
wenzelm@17097
  1089
* Proper output of antiquotations for theory commands involving a
wenzelm@17097
  1090
proof context (such as 'locale' or 'theorem (in loc) ...').
wenzelm@17097
  1091
wenzelm@17193
  1092
* Delimiters of outer tokens (string etc.) now produce separate LaTeX
wenzelm@17193
  1093
macros (\isachardoublequoteopen, isachardoublequoteclose etc.).
wenzelm@17193
  1094
wenzelm@17193
  1095
* isatool usedir: new option -C (default true) controls whether option
wenzelm@17193
  1096
-D should include a copy of the original document directory; -C false
wenzelm@17193
  1097
prevents unwanted effects such as copying of administrative CVS data.

wenzelm@16234
  1102
* Considerably improved version of 'constdefs' command.  Now performs
wenzelm@16234
  1103
automatic type-inference of declared constants; additional support for
wenzelm@16234
  1104
local structure declarations (cf. locales and HOL records), see also
wenzelm@16234
  1105
isar-ref manual.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY: need to observe strictly
wenzelm@16234
  1106
sequential dependencies of definitions within a single 'constdefs'
wenzelm@16234
  1107
section; moreover, the declared name needs to be an identifier.  If
wenzelm@16234
  1108
all fails, consider to fall back on 'consts' and 'defs' separately.
wenzelm@16234
  1109
wenzelm@16234
  1110
* Improved indexed syntax and implicit structures.  First of all,
wenzelm@16234
  1111
indexed syntax provides a notational device for subscripted
wenzelm@16234
  1112
application, using the new syntax \<^bsub>term\<^esub> for arbitrary
wenzelm@16234
  1113
expressions.  Secondly, in a local context with structure
wenzelm@16234
  1114
declarations, number indexes \<^sub>n or the empty index (default
wenzelm@16234
  1115
number 1) refer to a certain fixed variable implicitly; option
wenzelm@16234
  1116
show_structs controls printing of implicit structures.  Typical
wenzelm@16234
  1117
applications of these concepts involve record types and locales.
wenzelm@16234
  1118
wenzelm@16234
  1119
* New command 'no_syntax' removes grammar declarations (and
wenzelm@16234
  1120
translations) resulting from the given syntax specification, which is
wenzelm@16234
  1121
interpreted in the same manner as for the 'syntax' command.
wenzelm@16234
  1122
wenzelm@16234
  1123
* 'Advanced' translation functions (parse_translation etc.) may depend
wenzelm@16234
  1124
on the signature of the theory context being presently used for
wenzelm@16234
  1125
parsing/printing, see also isar-ref manual.
wenzelm@16234
  1126
wenzelm@16856
  1127
* Improved 'oracle' command provides a type-safe interface to turn an
wenzelm@16856
  1128
ML expression of type theory -> T -> term into a primitive rule of
wenzelm@16856
  1129
type theory -> T -> thm (i.e. the functionality of Thm.invoke_oracle
wenzelm@16856
  1130
is already included here); see also FOL/ex/IffExample.thy;
wenzelm@16856
  1131
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@16856
  1132
wenzelm@17275
  1133
* axclass: name space prefix for class "c" is now "c_class" (was "c"
wenzelm@17275
  1134
before); "cI" is no longer bound, use "c.intro" instead.
wenzelm@17275
  1135
INCOMPATIBILITY.  This change avoids clashes of fact bindings for
wenzelm@17275
  1136
axclasses vs. locales.
wenzelm@17275
  1137
wenzelm@16234
  1138
* Improved internal renaming of symbolic identifiers -- attach primes
wenzelm@16234
  1139
instead of base 26 numbers.
wenzelm@16234
  1140
wenzelm@16234
  1141
* New flag show_question_marks controls printing of leading question
wenzelm@16234
  1142
marks in schematic variable names.
wenzelm@16234
  1143
wenzelm@16234
  1144
* In schematic variable names, *any* symbol following \<^isub> or
wenzelm@16234
  1145
\<^isup> is now treated as part of the base name.  For example, the
wenzelm@16234
  1146
following works without printing of awkward ".0" indexes:
wenzelm@16234
  1147
wenzelm@16234
  1148
  lemma "x\<^isub>1 = x\<^isub>2 ==> x\<^isub>2 = x\<^isub>1"
wenzelm@16234
  1149
    by simp
wenzelm@16234
  1150
wenzelm@16234
  1151
* Inner syntax includes (*(*nested*) comments*).
wenzelm@16234
  1152
wenzelm@17548
  1153
* Pretty printer now supports unbreakable blocks, specified in mixfix
wenzelm@16234
  1154
annotations as "(00...)".
wenzelm@16234
  1155
wenzelm@16234
  1156
* Clear separation of logical types and nonterminals, where the latter
wenzelm@16234
  1157
may only occur in 'syntax' specifications or type abbreviations.
wenzelm@16234
  1158
Before that distinction was only partially implemented via type class
wenzelm@16234
  1159
"logic" vs. "{}".  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY in rare cases of improper
wenzelm@16234
  1160
use of 'types'/'consts' instead of 'nonterminals'/'syntax'.  Some very
wenzelm@16234
  1161
exotic syntax specifications may require further adaption
wenzelm@17691
  1162
(e.g. Cube/Cube.thy).
wenzelm@16234
  1163
wenzelm@16234
  1164
* Removed obsolete type class "logic", use the top sort {} instead.
wenzelm@16234
  1165
Note that non-logical types should be declared as 'nonterminals'
wenzelm@16234
  1166
rather than 'types'.  INCOMPATIBILITY for new object-logic
wenzelm@16234
  1167
specifications.
wenzelm@16234
  1168
ballarin@17095
  1169
* Attributes 'induct' and 'cases': type or set names may now be
ballarin@17095
  1170
locally fixed variables as well.
ballarin@17095
  1171
wenzelm@16234
  1172
* Simplifier: can now control the depth to which conditional rewriting
wenzelm@16234
  1173
is traced via the PG menu Isabelle -> Settings -> Trace Simp Depth
wenzelm@16234
  1174
Limit.
wenzelm@16234
  1175
wenzelm@16234
  1176
* Simplifier: simplification procedures may now take the current
wenzelm@16234
  1177
simpset into account (cf. Simplifier.simproc(_i) / mk_simproc
wenzelm@16234
  1178
interface), which is very useful for calling the Simplifier
wenzelm@16234
  1179
recursively.  Minor INCOMPATIBILITY: the 'prems' argument of simprocs
wenzelm@16234
  1180
is gone -- use prems_of_ss on the simpset instead.  Moreover, the
wenzelm@16234
  1181
low-level mk_simproc no longer applies Logic.varify internally, to
wenzelm@16234
  1182
allow for use in a context of fixed variables.
wenzelm@16234
  1183
wenzelm@16234
  1184
* thin_tac now works even if the assumption being deleted contains !!
wenzelm@16234
  1185
or ==>.  More generally, erule now works even if the major premise of
wenzelm@16234
  1186
the elimination rule contains !! or ==>.
wenzelm@16234
  1187
wenzelm@17597
  1188
* Method 'rules' has been renamed to 'iprover'. INCOMPATIBILITY.
nipkow@17590
  1189
wenzelm@16234
  1190
* Reorganized bootstrapping of the Pure theories; CPure is now derived
wenzelm@16234
  1191
from Pure, which contains all common declarations already.  Both
wenzelm@16234
  1192
theories are defined via plain Isabelle/Isar .thy files.
wenzelm@16234
  1193
INCOMPATIBILITY: elements of CPure (such as the CPure.intro /
wenzelm@16234
  1194
CPure.elim / CPure.dest attributes) now appear in the Pure name space;
wenzelm@16234
  1195
use isatool fixcpure to adapt your theory and ML sources.
wenzelm@16234
  1196
wenzelm@16234
  1197
* New syntax 'name(i-j, i-, i, ...)' for referring to specific
wenzelm@16234
  1198
selections of theorems in named facts via index ranges.
wenzelm@16234
  1199
wenzelm@17097
  1200
* 'print_theorems': in theory mode, really print the difference
wenzelm@17097
  1201
wrt. the last state (works for interactive theory development only),
wenzelm@17097
  1202
in proof mode print all local facts (cf. 'print_facts');
wenzelm@17097
  1203
wenzelm@17397
  1204
* 'hide': option '(open)' hides only base names.
wenzelm@17397
  1205
wenzelm@17275
  1206
* More efficient treatment of intermediate checkpoints in interactive
wenzelm@17275
  1207
theory development.
wenzelm@17275
  1208
berghofe@17663
  1209
* Code generator is now invoked via code_module (incremental code
wenzelm@17664
  1210
generation) and code_library (modular code generation, ML structures
wenzelm@17664
  1211
for each theory).  INCOMPATIBILITY: new keywords 'file' and 'contains'
wenzelm@17664
  1212
must be quoted when used as identifiers.
wenzelm@17664
  1213
wenzelm@17664
  1214
* New 'value' command for reading, evaluating and printing terms using
wenzelm@17664
  1215
the code generator.  INCOMPATIBILITY: command keyword 'value' must be
wenzelm@17664
  1216
quoted when used as identifier.

*** Locales ***
ballarin@17095
  1220
wenzelm@17385
  1221
* New commands for the interpretation of locale expressions in
wenzelm@17385
  1222
theories (1), locales (2) and proof contexts (3).  These generate
wenzelm@17385
  1223
proof obligations from the expression specification.  After the
wenzelm@17385
  1224
obligations have been discharged, theorems of the expression are added
wenzelm@17385
  1225
to the theory, target locale or proof context.  The synopsis of the
wenzelm@17385
  1226
commands is a follows:
wenzelm@17385
  1227
ballarin@17095
  1228
  (1) interpretation expr inst
ballarin@17095
  1229
  (2) interpretation target < expr
ballarin@17095
  1230
  (3) interpret expr inst
wenzelm@17385
  1231
ballarin@17095
  1232
Interpretation in theories and proof contexts require a parameter
ballarin@17095
  1233
instantiation of terms from the current context.  This is applied to
wenzelm@17385
  1234
specifications and theorems of the interpreted expression.
wenzelm@17385
  1235
Interpretation in locales only permits parameter renaming through the
wenzelm@17385
  1236
locale expression.  Interpretation is smart in that interpretations
wenzelm@17385
  1237
that are active already do not occur in proof obligations, neither are
wenzelm@17385
  1238
instantiated theorems stored in duplicate.  Use 'print_interps' to
wenzelm@17385
  1239
inspect active interpretations of a particular locale.  For details,
ballarin@17436
  1240
see the Isar Reference manual.  Examples can be found in
ballarin@17436
  1241
HOL/Finite_Set.thy and HOL/Algebra/UnivPoly.thy.
wenzelm@16234
  1242
wenzelm@16234
  1243
INCOMPATIBILITY: former 'instantiate' has been withdrawn, use
wenzelm@16234
  1244
'interpret' instead.
wenzelm@16234
  1245
wenzelm@17385
  1246
* New context element 'constrains' for adding type constraints to
wenzelm@17385
  1247
parameters.
wenzelm@17385
  1248
wenzelm@17385
  1249
* Context expressions: renaming of parameters with syntax
wenzelm@17385
  1250
redeclaration.
ballarin@17095
  1251
ballarin@17095
  1252
* Locale declaration: 'includes' disallowed.
ballarin@17095
  1253
wenzelm@16234
  1254
* Proper static binding of attribute syntax -- i.e. types / terms /
wenzelm@16234
  1255
facts mentioned as arguments are always those of the locale definition
wenzelm@16234
  1256
context, independently of the context of later invocations.  Moreover,
wenzelm@16234
  1257
locale operations (renaming and type / term instantiation) are applied
wenzelm@16234
  1258
to attribute arguments as expected.
wenzelm@16234
  1259
wenzelm@16234
  1260
INCOMPATIBILITY of the ML interface: always pass Attrib.src instead of
wenzelm@16234
  1261
actual attributes; rare situations may require Attrib.attribute to
wenzelm@16234
  1262
embed those attributes into Attrib.src that lack concrete syntax.
wenzelm@16234
  1263
Attribute implementations need to cooperate properly with the static
wenzelm@16234
  1264
binding mechanism.  Basic parsers Args.XXX_typ/term/prop and
wenzelm@16234
  1265
Attrib.XXX_thm etc. already do the right thing without further
wenzelm@16234
  1266
intervention.  Only unusual applications -- such as "where" or "of"
wenzelm@16234
  1267
(cf. src/Pure/Isar/attrib.ML), which process arguments depending both
wenzelm@16234
  1268
on the context and the facts involved -- may have to assign parsed
wenzelm@16234
  1269
values to argument tokens explicitly.
wenzelm@16234
  1270
wenzelm@16234
  1271
* Changed parameter management in theorem generation for long goal
wenzelm@16234
  1272
statements with 'includes'.  INCOMPATIBILITY: produces a different
wenzelm@16234
  1273
theorem statement in rare situations.
wenzelm@16234
  1274
ballarin@17228
  1275
* Locale inspection command 'print_locale' omits notes elements.  Use
ballarin@17228
  1276
'print_locale!' to have them included in the output.

wenzelm@16234

* Provers/hypsubst.ML: improved version of the subst method, for
wenzelm@16234
  1282
single-step rewriting: it now works in bound variable contexts. New is
wenzelm@16234
  1283
'subst (asm)', for rewriting an assumption.  INCOMPATIBILITY: may
wenzelm@16234
  1284
rewrite a different subterm than the original subst method, which is
wenzelm@16234
  1285
still available as 'simplesubst'.
wenzelm@16234

and quasi orders.

  1291
reflexive-transitive closure of relations.
wenzelm@16234
  1292
wenzelm@16234
  1293
* Provers/blast.ML: new reference depth_limit to make blast's depth
wenzelm@16234
  1294
limit (previously hard-coded with a value of 20) user-definable.
wenzelm@16234
  1295
wenzelm@16234
  1296
* Provers/simplifier.ML has been moved to Pure, where Simplifier.setup
wenzelm@16234

  syntax (epsilon)
wenzelm@14878

  1308
The symbol \<some> is displayed as the alternative epsilon of LaTeX
wenzelm@16234

wenzelm@16234
  1310
Moreover, the mathematically important symbolic identifier \<epsilon>
wenzelm@16234
  1311
becomes available as variable, constant etc.  INCOMPATIBILITY,
wenzelm@16234
  1312
wenzelm@16234
  1313
* "x > y" abbreviates "y < x" and "x >= y" abbreviates "y <= x".
wenzelm@16234
  1314
Similarly for all quantifiers: "ALL x > y" etc.  The x-symbol for >=
wenzelm@17371
  1315
is \<ge>. New transitivity rules have been added to HOL/Orderings.thy to
avigad@17016
  1316
support corresponding Isar calculations.
wenzelm@16234
  1317
wenzelm@16234

* Theory Commutative_Ring (in Library): method comm_ring for proving
wenzelm@17533
  1338
equalities in commutative rings; method 'algebra' provides a generic
wenzelm@17533
  1339
interface.
wenzelm@17389
  1340
wenzelm@17389
  1341
* Theory Finite_Set: changed the syntax for 'setsum', summation over
wenzelm@16234
  1342
finite sets: "setsum (%x. e) A", which used to be "\<Sum>x:A. e", is
wenzelm@17371
  1343
now either "SUM x:A. e" or "\<Sum>x \<in> A. e". The bound variable can
paulson@17189
  1344
be a tuple pattern.
wenzelm@16234
  1345
wenzelm@16234
  1346
Some new syntax forms are available:
wenzelm@16234
  1347
wenzelm@16234
  1348
  "\<Sum>x | P. e"      for     "setsum (%x. e) {x. P}"
wenzelm@16234
  1349
  "\<Sum>x = a..b. e"   for     "setsum (%x. e) {a..b}"
wenzelm@16234
  1350
  "\<Sum>x = a..<b. e"  for     "setsum (%x. e) {a..<b}"
wenzelm@16234
  1351
  "\<Sum>x < k. e"      for     "setsum (%x. e) {..<k}"
wenzelm@16234
  1352
wenzelm@16234
  1353
The latter form "\<Sum>x < k. e" used to be based on a separate
wenzelm@16234
  1354
function "Summation", which has been discontinued.
wenzelm@16234
  1355
wenzelm@16234
  1356
* theory Finite_Set: in structured induction proofs, the insert case
wenzelm@16234
  1357
is now 'case (insert x F)' instead of the old counterintuitive 'case
wenzelm@16234
  1358
(insert F x)'.
wenzelm@16234
  1359
wenzelm@16234
  1360
* The 'refute' command has been extended to support a much larger
wenzelm@16234
  1361
fragment of HOL, including axiomatic type classes, constdefs and
wenzelm@16234
  1362
typedefs, inductive datatypes and recursion.
wenzelm@16234
  1363
webertj@17700
  1364
* New tactics 'sat' and 'satx' to prove propositional tautologies.
webertj@17700
  1365
Requires zChaff with proof generation to be installed.  See
webertj@17700
  1366
HOL/ex/SAT_Examples.thy for examples.
webertj@17619
  1367
wenzelm@16234
  1368
* Datatype induction via method 'induct' now preserves the name of the
wenzelm@16234
  1369
induction variable. For example, when proving P(xs::'a list) by
wenzelm@16234
  1370
induction on xs, the induction step is now P(xs) ==> P(a#xs) rather
wenzelm@16234
  1371
than P(list) ==> P(a#list) as previously.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY
wenzelm@16234
  1372
in unstructured proof scripts.
wenzelm@16234
  1373
wenzelm@16234
  1374
* Reworked implementation of records.  Improved scalability for
wenzelm@16234
  1375
records with many fields, avoiding performance problems for type
wenzelm@16234
  1376
inference. Records are no longer composed of nested field types, but
wenzelm@16234
  1377
of nested extension types. Therefore the record type only grows linear
wenzelm@16234
  1378
in the number of extensions and not in the number of fields.  The
wenzelm@16234
  1379
top-level (users) view on records is preserved.  Potential
wenzelm@16234
  1380
INCOMPATIBILITY only in strange cases, where the theory depends on the
wenzelm@16234
  1381
old record representation. The type generated for a record is called
wenzelm@16234
  1382
<record_name>_ext_type.
wenzelm@16234
  1383
wenzelm@16234
  1384
Flag record_quick_and_dirty_sensitive can be enabled to skip the
wenzelm@16234
  1385
proofs triggered by a record definition or a simproc (if
wenzelm@16234
  1386
quick_and_dirty is enabled).  Definitions of large records can take
wenzelm@16234
  1387
quite long.
wenzelm@16234
  1388
wenzelm@16234
  1389
New simproc record_upd_simproc for simplification of multiple record
wenzelm@16234
  1390
updates enabled by default.  Moreover, trivial updates are also
wenzelm@16234
  1391
removed: r(|x := x r|) = r.  INCOMPATIBILITY: old proofs break
wenzelm@16234
  1392
occasionally, since simplification is more powerful by default.
wenzelm@16234
  1393
wenzelm@17275
  1394
* typedef: proper support for polymorphic sets, which contain extra
wenzelm@17275
  1395
type-variables in the term.
wenzelm@17275
  1396
wenzelm@16234
  1397
* Simplifier: automatically reasons about transitivity chains
wenzelm@16234
  1398
involving "trancl" (r^+) and "rtrancl" (r^*) by setting up tactics
wenzelm@16234
  1399
provided by Provers/trancl.ML as additional solvers.  INCOMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@16234
  1400
old proofs break occasionally as simplification may now solve more
wenzelm@16234
  1401
goals than previously.
wenzelm@16234
  1402
wenzelm@16234
  1403
* Simplifier: converts x <= y into x = y if assumption y <= x is
wenzelm@16234
  1404
present.  Works for all partial orders (class "order"), in particular
wenzelm@16234
  1405
numbers and sets.  For linear orders (e.g. numbers) it treats ~ x < y
wenzelm@16234
  1406
just like y <= x.
wenzelm@16234
  1407
wenzelm@16234
  1408
* Simplifier: new simproc for "let x = a in f x".  If a is a free or
wenzelm@16234
  1409
bound variable or a constant then the let is unfolded.  Otherwise
wenzelm@16234
  1410
first a is simplified to b, and then f b is simplified to g. If
wenzelm@16234
  1411
possible we abstract b from g arriving at "let x = b in h x",
wenzelm@16234
  1412
otherwise we unfold the let and arrive at g.  The simproc can be
wenzelm@16234
  1413
enabled/disabled by the reference use_let_simproc.  Potential
wenzelm@16234
  1414
INCOMPATIBILITY since simplification is more powerful by default.

* Hyperreal: new method "transfer" that implements the transfer

principle of nonstandard analysis. With a subgoal that mentions
huffman@17442
  1621
nonstandard types like "'a star", the command "apply transfer"
huffman@17442
  1622
replaces it with an equivalent one that mentions only standard types.

wenzelm@17533
  1631
* Discontinued special version of 'constdefs' (which used to support
wenzelm@17533
  1632
continuous functions) in favor of the general Pure one with full
wenzelm@17533
  1633
type-inference.
wenzelm@17533
  1634
wenzelm@17533
  1635
* New simplification procedure for solving continuity conditions; it
wenzelm@17533
  1636
is much faster on terms with many nested lambda abstractions (cubic
huffman@17442
  1637
instead of exponential time).
huffman@17442
  1638
wenzelm@17533
  1639
* New syntax for domain package: selector names are now optional.
huffman@17442
  1640
Parentheses should be omitted unless argument is lazy, for example:
huffman@17442
  1641

  domain 'a stream = cons "'a" (lazy "'a stream")
huffman@17442

* New command 'fixrec' for defining recursive functions with pattern
wenzelm@17533
  1645
matching; defining multiple functions with mutual recursion is also
wenzelm@17533
  1646
supported.  Patterns may include the constants cpair, spair, up, sinl,
wenzelm@17533
  1647
sinr, or any data constructor defined by the domain package. The given
wenzelm@17533
  1648

* New commands 'cpodef' and 'pcpodef' for defining predicate subtypes
wenzelm@17533
  1652
of cpo and pcpo types. Syntax is exactly like the 'typedef' command,
wenzelm@17533
  1653
but the proof obligation additionally includes an admissibility
wenzelm@17533
  1654
requirement. The packages generate instances of class cpo or pcpo,
wenzelm@17533
  1655
with continuity and strictness theorems for Rep and Abs.

that of the SML basis, which has constructors NONE and SOME instead of
wenzelm@16234
  1692
None and Some, as well as exception Option.Option instead of OPTION.
wenzelm@16234
  1693
The functions the, if_none, is_some, is_none have been adapted

accordingly, while Option.map replaces apsome.
wenzelm@15973
  1695
wenzelm@16860
  1696
* Pure/library.ML: the exception LIST has been given up in favour of
wenzelm@16860
  1697
the standard exceptions Empty and Subscript, as well as
wenzelm@16860
  1698
Library.UnequalLengths.  Function like Library.hd and Library.tl are
wenzelm@16860

superceded by the standard hd and tl functions etc.

wenzelm@16860
  1701
A number of basic list functions are no longer exported to the ML
wenzelm@16860
  1702
toplevel, as they are variants of predefined functions.  The following
wenzelm@16234
  1703
suggests how one can translate existing code:
wenzelm@15973
  1704
wenzelm@15973
  1705
    rev_append xs ys = List.revAppend (xs, ys)
wenzelm@15973
  1706
    nth_elem (i, xs) = List.nth (xs, i)
wenzelm@15973
  1707
    last_elem xs = List.last xs
wenzelm@15973
  1708
    flat xss = List.concat xss
wenzelm@16234
  1709
    seq fs = List.app fs
wenzelm@15973
  1710
    partition P xs = List.partition P xs
wenzelm@15973
  1711
    mapfilter f xs = List.mapPartial f xs
wenzelm@15973
  1712
wenzelm@16860
  1713
* Pure/library.ML: several combinators for linear functional
wenzelm@16860
  1714
transformations, notably reverse application and composition:
wenzelm@16860
  1715
wenzelm@17371
  1716
  x |> f                f #> g

  (x, y) |-> f          f #-> g
wenzelm@16860
  1718
haftmann@17495
  1719
* Pure/library.ML: introduced/changed precedence of infix operators:
haftmann@17495
  1720
haftmann@17495
  1721
  infix 1 |> |-> ||> ||>> |>> |>>> #> #->;
haftmann@17495
  1722
  infix 2 ?;
haftmann@17495
  1723
  infix 3 o oo ooo oooo;

  1724
  infix 4 ~~ upto downto;
haftmann@17495
  1725
haftmann@17495
  1726
Maybe INCOMPATIBILITY when any of those is used in conjunction with other
haftmann@17495
  1727
infix operators.
haftmann@17495

wenzelm@17408
  1729
* Pure/library.ML: natural list combinators fold, fold_rev, and
haftmann@16869
  1730
fold_map support linear functional transformations and nesting.  For
wenzelm@16860
  1731
example:
wenzelm@16860
  1732
wenzelm@16860
  1733
  fold f [x1, ..., xN] y =
wenzelm@16860
  1734
    y |> f x1 |> ... |> f xN
wenzelm@16860
  1735
wenzelm@16860
  1736
  (fold o fold) f [xs1, ..., xsN] y =
wenzelm@16860
  1737
    y |> fold f xs1 |> ... |> fold f xsN
wenzelm@16860
  1738
wenzelm@16860
  1739
  fold f [x1, ..., xN] =
wenzelm@16860
  1740
    f x1 #> ... #> f xN
wenzelm@16860
  1741
wenzelm@16860
  1742
  (fold o fold) f [xs1, ..., xsN] =
wenzelm@16860

    fold f xs1 #> ... #> fold f xsN
wenzelm@16860
  1744
wenzelm@17408
  1745
* Pure/library.ML: the following selectors on type 'a option are
wenzelm@17408
  1746
available:
wenzelm@17408
  1747
wenzelm@17408
  1748
  the:               'a option -> 'a  (*partial*)
wenzelm@17408
  1749
  these:             'a option -> 'a  where 'a = 'b list

  1750
  the_default: 'a -> 'a option -> 'a

haftmann@17402
  1752
wenzelm@17408
  1753
* Pure/General: structure AList (cf. Pure/General/alist.ML) provides
wenzelm@17408
  1754
basic operations for association lists, following natural argument
haftmann@17564
  1755
order; moreover the explicit equality predicate passed here avoids
haftmann@17495
  1756
potentially expensive polymorphic runtime equality checks.
haftmann@17495
  1757
The old functions may be expressed as follows:
wenzelm@17408
  1758
wenzelm@17408
  1759
  assoc = uncurry (AList.lookup (op =))
wenzelm@17408
  1760
  assocs = these oo AList.lookup (op =)
wenzelm@17408
  1761
  overwrite = uncurry (AList.update (op =)) o swap
wenzelm@17408
  1762
haftmann@17564
  1763
* Pure/General: structure AList (cf. Pure/General/alist.ML) provides
haftmann@17564
  1764
haftmann@17564
  1765
  val make: ('a -> 'b) -> 'a list -> ('a * 'b) list
haftmann@17564
  1766
  val find: ('a * 'b -> bool) -> ('c * 'b) list -> 'a -> 'c list
haftmann@17564

haftmann@17564
  1771
  make_keylist = AList.make
haftmann@17564
  1772
  keyfilter = AList.find (op =)
haftmann@17564
  1773
haftmann@17564
  1774
* eq_fst and eq_snd now take explicit equality parameter, thus
haftmann@17564
  1775
  avoiding eqtypes. Naive rewrites:
haftmann@17564
  1776
haftmann@17564
  1777
    eq_fst = eq_fst (op =)
haftmann@17564
  1778
    eq_snd = eq_snd (op =)
haftmann@17564
  1779
haftmann@17564
  1780
* Removed deprecated apl and apr (rarely used).
haftmann@17564
  1781
  Naive rewrites:
haftmann@17564
  1782

wenzelm@17408
  1786
* Pure/General: structure OrdList (cf. Pure/General/ord_list.ML)
wenzelm@17408
  1787
provides a reasonably efficient light-weight implementation of sets as
wenzelm@17408
  1788
lists.
wenzelm@17408
  1789
wenzelm@17408
  1790
* Pure/General: generic tables (cf. Pure/General/table.ML) provide a
wenzelm@17408
  1791
few new operations; existing lookup and update are now curried to
wenzelm@17408
  1792
follow natural argument order (for use with fold etc.);
wenzelm@17408
  1793
INCOMPATIBILITY, use (uncurry Symtab.lookup) etc. as last resort.
wenzelm@17408
  1794
wenzelm@17408
  1795
* Pure/General: output via the Isabelle channels of
wenzelm@17408
  1796
writeln/warning/error etc. is now passed through Output.output, with a
wenzelm@17408
  1797
hook for arbitrary transformations depending on the print_mode
wenzelm@17408
  1798
(cf. Output.add_mode -- the first active mode that provides a output
wenzelm@17408
  1799
function wins).  Already formatted output may be embedded into further
wenzelm@17408
  1800
text via Output.raw; the result of Pretty.string_of/str_of and derived
wenzelm@17408
  1801
functions (string_of_term/cterm/thm etc.) is already marked raw to
wenzelm@17408
  1802
accommodate easy composition of diagnostic messages etc.  Programmers
wenzelm@17408
  1803
rarely need to care about Output.output or Output.raw at all, with
wenzelm@17408
  1804
some notable exceptions: Output.output is required when bypassing the
wenzelm@17408
  1805
standard channels (writeln etc.), or in token translations to produce
wenzelm@17408
  1806
properly formatted results; Output.raw is required when capturing
wenzelm@17408
  1807
already output material that will eventually be presented to the user
wenzelm@17408
  1808
a second time.  For the default print mode, both Output.output and
wenzelm@17408
  1809
Output.raw have no effect.
wenzelm@17408
  1810
wenzelm@17408
  1811
* Pure/General: Output.time_accumulator NAME creates an operator ('a
wenzelm@17408
  1812
-> 'b) -> 'a -> 'b to measure runtime and count invocations; the
wenzelm@17408
  1813
cumulative results are displayed at the end of a batch session.
wenzelm@17408
  1814
wenzelm@17408
  1815
* Pure/General: File.sysify_path and File.quote_sysify path have been
wenzelm@17408
  1816
replaced by File.platform_path and File.shell_path (with appropriate
wenzelm@17408
  1817
hooks).  This provides a clean interface for unusual systems where the
wenzelm@17408
  1818
internal and external process view of file names are different.
wenzelm@17408
  1819
wenzelm@16689
  1820
* Pure: more efficient orders for basic syntactic entities: added
wenzelm@16689
  1821
fast_string_ord, fast_indexname_ord, fast_term_ord; changed sort_ord
wenzelm@16689
  1822
and typ_ord to use fast_string_ord and fast_indexname_ord (term_ord is
wenzelm@16689
  1823
NOT affected); structures Symtab, Vartab, Typtab, Termtab use the fast
wenzelm@16689
  1824
orders now -- potential INCOMPATIBILITY for code that depends on a
wenzelm@16689
  1825
particular order for Symtab.keys, Symtab.dest, etc. (consider using
wenzelm@16689
  1826
Library.sort_strings on result).
wenzelm@16689
  1827
wenzelm@17408
  1828
* Pure/term.ML: combinators fold_atyps, fold_aterms, fold_term_types,
wenzelm@17408
  1829
fold_types traverse types/terms from left to right, observing natural
wenzelm@17408
  1830
argument order.  Supercedes previous foldl_XXX versions, add_frees,
wenzelm@17408
  1831
add_vars etc. have been adapted as well: INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17408
  1832
wenzelm@16151
  1833
* Pure: name spaces have been refined, with significant changes of the
wenzelm@16234
  1834
internal interfaces -- INCOMPATIBILITY.  Renamed cond_extern(_table)
wenzelm@16234
  1835
to extern(_table).  The plain name entry path is superceded by a
wenzelm@16234
  1836
general 'naming' context, which also includes the 'policy' to produce
wenzelm@16234
  1837
a fully qualified name and external accesses of a fully qualified
wenzelm@16234
  1838
name; NameSpace.extend is superceded by context dependent
wenzelm@16234
  1839
Sign.declare_name.  Several theory and proof context operations modify
wenzelm@16234
  1840
the naming context.  Especially note Theory.restore_naming and
wenzelm@16234
  1841
ProofContext.restore_naming to get back to a sane state; note that
wenzelm@16234
  1842
Theory.add_path is no longer sufficient to recover from
wenzelm@16234
  1843
Theory.absolute_path in particular.
wenzelm@16234
  1844
wenzelm@16234
  1845
* Pure: new flags short_names (default false) and unique_names
wenzelm@16234
  1846
(default true) for controlling output of qualified names.  If
wenzelm@16234
  1847
short_names is set, names are printed unqualified.  If unique_names is
wenzelm@16234
  1848
reset, the name prefix is reduced to the minimum required to achieve
wenzelm@16234
  1849
the original result when interning again, even if there is an overlap
wenzelm@16234
  1850
with earlier declarations.
wenzelm@16151
  1851
wenzelm@16456
  1852
* Pure/TheoryDataFun: change of the argument structure; 'prep_ext' is
wenzelm@16456
  1853
now 'extend', and 'merge' gets an additional Pretty.pp argument
wenzelm@16456
  1854
(useful for printing error messages).  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@16456
  1855
wenzelm@16456
  1856
* Pure: major reorganization of the theory context.  Type Sign.sg and
wenzelm@16456
  1857
Theory.theory are now identified, referring to the universal
wenzelm@16456
  1858
Context.theory (see Pure/context.ML).  Actual signature and theory
wenzelm@16456
  1859
content is managed as theory data.  The old code and interfaces were
wenzelm@16456
  1860
spread over many files and structures; the new arrangement introduces
wenzelm@16456
  1861
considerable INCOMPATIBILITY to gain more clarity:
wenzelm@16456
  1862
wenzelm@16456
  1863
  Context -- theory management operations (name, identity, inclusion,
wenzelm@16456
  1864
    parents, ancestors, merge, etc.), plus generic theory data;
wenzelm@16456
  1865
wenzelm@16456
  1866
  Sign -- logical signature and syntax operations (declaring consts,
wenzelm@16456
  1867
    types, etc.), plus certify/read for common entities;
wenzelm@16456
  1868
wenzelm@16456
  1869
  Theory -- logical theory operations (stating axioms, definitions,
wenzelm@16456
  1870
    oracles), plus a copy of logical signature operations (consts,
wenzelm@16456
  1871
    types, etc.); also a few basic management operations (Theory.copy,
wenzelm@16456
  1872
    Theory.merge, etc.)
wenzelm@16456
  1873
wenzelm@16456
  1874
The most basic sign_of operations (Theory.sign_of, Thm.sign_of_thm
wenzelm@16456
  1875
etc.) as well as the sign field in Thm.rep_thm etc. have been retained
wenzelm@16456
  1876
for convenience -- they merely return the theory.
wenzelm@16456
  1877
wenzelm@17193
  1878
* Pure: type Type.tsig is superceded by theory in most interfaces.
wenzelm@17193
  1879
wenzelm@16547
  1880
* Pure: the Isar proof context type is already defined early in Pure
wenzelm@16547
  1881
as Context.proof (note that ProofContext.context and Proof.context are
wenzelm@16547
  1882
aliases, where the latter is the preferred name).  This enables other
wenzelm@16547
  1883
Isabelle components to refer to that type even before Isar is present.
wenzelm@16547
  1884
wenzelm@16373
  1885
* Pure/sign/theory: discontinued named name spaces (i.e. classK,
wenzelm@16373
  1886
typeK, constK, axiomK, oracleK), but provide explicit operations for
wenzelm@16373
  1887
any of these kinds.  For example, Sign.intern typeK is now
wenzelm@16373
  1888
Sign.intern_type, Theory.hide_space Sign.typeK is now
wenzelm@16373
  1889
Theory.hide_types.  Also note that former
wenzelm@16373
  1890
Theory.hide_classes/types/consts are now
wenzelm@16373
  1891
Theory.hide_classes_i/types_i/consts_i, while the non '_i' versions
wenzelm@16373
  1892
internalize their arguments!  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@16373
  1893
wenzelm@16506
  1894
* Pure: get_thm interface (of PureThy and ProofContext) expects
wenzelm@16506
  1895
datatype thmref (with constructors Name and NameSelection) instead of
wenzelm@16506
  1896
plain string -- INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@16506
  1897
wenzelm@16151
  1898
* Pure: cases produced by proof methods specify options, where NONE
wenzelm@16234
  1899
means to remove case bindings -- INCOMPATIBILITY in
wenzelm@16234
  1900
(RAW_)METHOD_CASES.
wenzelm@16151
  1901
wenzelm@16373
  1902
* Pure: the following operations retrieve axioms or theorems from a
wenzelm@16373
  1903
theory node or theory hierarchy, respectively:
wenzelm@16373
  1904
wenzelm@16373
  1905
  Theory.axioms_of: theory -> (string * term) list
wenzelm@16373
  1906
  Theory.all_axioms_of: theory -> (string * term) list
wenzelm@16373
  1907
  PureThy.thms_of: theory -> (string * thm) list
wenzelm@16373
  1908
  PureThy.all_thms_of: theory -> (string * thm) list
wenzelm@16373
  1909
wenzelm@16718
  1910
* Pure: print_tac now outputs the goal through the trace channel.
wenzelm@16718
  1911
wenzelm@17408
  1912
* Isar toplevel: improved diagnostics, mostly for Poly/ML only.
wenzelm@17408
  1913
Reference Toplevel.debug (default false) controls detailed printing
wenzelm@17408
  1914
and tracing of low-level exceptions; Toplevel.profiling (default 0)
wenzelm@17408
  1915
controls execution profiling -- set to 1 for time and 2 for space
wenzelm@17408
  1916
(both increase the runtime).
wenzelm@17408
  1917
wenzelm@17408
  1918
* Isar session: The initial use of ROOT.ML is now always timed,
wenzelm@17408
  1919
i.e. the log will show the actual process times, in contrast to the
wenzelm@17408
  1920
elapsed wall-clock time that the outer shell wrapper produces.
wenzelm@17408
  1921
wenzelm@17408
  1922
* Simplifier: improved handling of bound variables (nameless
wenzelm@16997
  1923
representation, avoid allocating new strings).  Simprocs that invoke
wenzelm@16997
  1924
the Simplifier recursively should use Simplifier.inherit_bounds to
wenzelm@17720
  1925
avoid local name clashes.  Failure to do so produces warnings
wenzelm@17720
  1926
"Simplifier: renamed bound variable ..."; set Simplifier.debug_bounds
wenzelm@17720
  1927
for further details.
wenzelm@16234
  1928
wenzelm@17166
  1929
* ML functions legacy_bindings and use_legacy_bindings produce ML fact
wenzelm@17166
  1930
bindings for all theorems stored within a given theory; this may help
wenzelm@17166
  1931
in porting non-Isar theories to Isar ones, while keeping ML proof
wenzelm@17166
  1932
scripts for the time being.
wenzelm@17166
  1933
wenzelm@17457
  1934
* ML operator HTML.with_charset specifies the charset begin used for
wenzelm@17457
  1935
generated HTML files.  For example:
wenzelm@17457
  1936
wenzelm@17457
  1937
  HTML.with_charset "utf-8" use_thy "Hebrew";
wenzelm@17538
  1938
  HTML.with_charset "utf-8" use_thy "Chinese";

  1941
*** System ***
wenzelm@16234
  1942
wenzelm@16234
  1943
* Allow symlinks to all proper Isabelle executables (Isabelle,
wenzelm@16234
  1944
isabelle, isatool etc.).
wenzelm@16234
  1945
wenzelm@16234
  1946
* ISABELLE_DOC_FORMAT setting specifies preferred document format (for
wenzelm@16234
  1947
isatool doc, isatool mkdir, display_drafts etc.).
wenzelm@16234
  1948
wenzelm@16234
  1949
* isatool usedir: option -f allows specification of the ML file to be
wenzelm@16234
  1950
used by Isabelle; default is ROOT.ML.
wenzelm@16234
  1951
wenzelm@16251
  1952
* New isatool version outputs the version identifier of the Isabelle
wenzelm@16251
  1953
distribution being used.
wenzelm@16251
  1954
wenzelm@16251
  1955
* HOL: new isatool dimacs2hol converts files in DIMACS CNF format
wenzelm@16234
  1956
(containing Boolean satisfiability problems) into Isabelle/HOL
wenzelm@16234
  1957
theories.

skalberg@14171
  1965
ballarin@14398
  1966
* Provers/order.ML:  new efficient reasoner for partial and linear orders.
ballarin@14398
  1967
  Replaces linorder.ML.
ballarin@14398
  1968
wenzelm@14606
  1969
* Pure: Greek letters (except small lambda, \<lambda>), as well as Gothic
wenzelm@14606
  1970
  (\<aa>...\<zz>\<AA>...\<ZZ>), calligraphic (\<A>...\<Z>), and Euler
skalberg@14173
  1971
  (\<a>...\<z>), are now considered normal letters, and can therefore
skalberg@14173
  1972
  be used anywhere where an ASCII letter (a...zA...Z) has until
skalberg@14173
  1973
  now. COMPATIBILITY: This obviously changes the parsing of some
skalberg@14173
  1974
  terms, especially where a symbol has been used as a binder, say
skalberg@14173
  1975
  '\<Pi>x. ...', which is now a type error since \<Pi>x will be parsed
skalberg@14173
  1976
  as an identifier.  Fix it by inserting a space around former
skalberg@14173
  1977
  symbols.  Call 'isatool fixgreek' to try to fix parsing errors in
skalberg@14173
  1978
  existing theory and ML files.
skalberg@14171
  1979
paulson@14237
  1980
* Pure: Macintosh and Windows line-breaks are now allowed in theory files.
paulson@14237
  1981
wenzelm@14731
  1982
* Pure: single letter sub/superscripts (\<^isub> and \<^isup>) are now
wenzelm@14731
  1983
  allowed in identifiers. Similar to Greek letters \<^isub> is now considered
wenzelm@14731
  1984
  a normal (but invisible) letter. For multiple letter subscripts repeat
wenzelm@14731
  1985
  \<^isub> like this: x\<^isub>1\<^isub>2.
kleing@14233
  1986
kleing@14333
  1987
* Pure: There are now sub-/superscripts that can span more than one
kleing@14333
  1988
  character. Text between \<^bsub> and \<^esub> is set in subscript in
wenzelm@14606
  1989
  ProofGeneral and LaTeX, text between \<^bsup> and \<^esup> in
wenzelm@14606
  1990
  superscript. The new control characters are not identifier parts.
kleing@14333
  1991
schirmer@14561
  1992
* Pure: Control-symbols of the form \<^raw:...> will literally print the
wenzelm@14606
  1993
  content of "..." to the latex file instead of \isacntrl... . The "..."
wenzelm@14606
  1994
  may consist of any printable characters excluding the end bracket >.
schirmer@14361
  1995
paulson@14237
  1996
* Pure: Using new Isar command "finalconsts" (or the ML functions
paulson@14237
  1997
  Theory.add_finals or Theory.add_finals_i) it is now possible to
paulson@14237
  1998
  declare constants "final", which prevents their being given a definition
paulson@14237
  1999
  later.  It is useful for constants whose behaviour is fixed axiomatically
skalberg@14224
  2000
  rather than definitionally, such as the meta-logic connectives.
skalberg@14224
  2001
wenzelm@14606
  2002
* Pure: 'instance' now handles general arities with general sorts
wenzelm@14606
  2003
  (i.e. intersections of classes),
skalberg@14503
  2004
kleing@14547
  2005
* Presentation: generated HTML now uses a CSS style sheet to make layout
wenzelm@14731
  2006
  (somewhat) independent of content. It is copied from lib/html/isabelle.css.
kleing@14547
  2007
  It can be changed to alter the colors/layout of generated pages.

*** Isar ***
ballarin@14175
  2011
ballarin@14508
  2012
* Tactic emulation methods rule_tac, erule_tac, drule_tac, frule_tac,
ballarin@14508
  2013
  cut_tac, subgoal_tac and thin_tac:
ballarin@14175
  2014
  - Now understand static (Isar) contexts.  As a consequence, users of Isar
ballarin@14175
  2015
    locales are no longer forced to write Isar proof scripts.
ballarin@14175
  2016
    For details see Isar Reference Manual, paragraph 4.3.2: Further tactic
ballarin@14175
  2017
    emulations.
ballarin@14175
  2018
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: names of variables to be instantiated may no
ballarin@14211
  2019
    longer be enclosed in quotes.  Instead, precede variable name with `?'.
ballarin@14211
  2020
    This is consistent with the instantiation attribute "where".
ballarin@14211
  2021
ballarin@14257
  2022
* Attributes "where" and "of":
ballarin@14285
  2023
  - Now take type variables of instantiated theorem into account when reading
ballarin@14285
  2024
    the instantiation string.  This fixes a bug that caused instantiated
ballarin@14285
  2025
    theorems to have too special types in some circumstances.
ballarin@14285
  2026
  - "where" permits explicit instantiations of type variables.
ballarin@14257
  2027
wenzelm@14556
  2028
* Calculation commands "moreover" and "also" no longer interfere with
wenzelm@14556
  2029
  current facts ("this"), admitting arbitrary combinations with "then"
wenzelm@14556
  2030
  and derived forms.
kleing@14283
  2031
ballarin@14211
  2032
* Locales:
ballarin@14211
  2033
  - Goal statements involving the context element "includes" no longer
ballarin@14211
  2034
    generate theorems with internal delta predicates (those ending on
ballarin@14211
  2035
    "_axioms") in the premise.
ballarin@14211
  2036
    Resolve particular premise with <locale>.intro to obtain old form.
ballarin@14211
  2037
  - Fixed bug in type inference ("unify_frozen") that prevented mix of target
ballarin@14211
  2038
    specification and "includes" elements in goal statement.
ballarin@14254
  2039
  - Rule sets <locale>.intro and <locale>.axioms no longer declared as
ballarin@14254
  2040
    [intro?] and [elim?] (respectively) by default.
ballarin@14508
  2041
  - Experimental command for instantiation of locales in proof contexts:
ballarin@14551
  2042
        instantiate <label>[<attrs>]: <loc>
ballarin@14508
  2043
    Instantiates locale <loc> and adds all its theorems to the current context
ballarin@14551
  2044
    taking into account their attributes.  Label and attrs are optional
ballarin@14551
  2045
    modifiers, like in theorem declarations.  If present, names of
ballarin@14551
  2046
    instantiated theorems are qualified with <label>, and the attributes
ballarin@14551
  2047
    <attrs> are applied after any attributes these theorems might have already.
ballarin@14551
  2048
      If the locale has assumptions, a chained fact of the form
ballarin@14508
  2049
    "<loc> t1 ... tn" is expected from which instantiations of the parameters
ballarin@14551
  2050
    are derived.  The command does not support old-style locales declared
ballarin@14551
  2051
    with "locale (open)".
ballarin@14551
  2052
      A few (very simple) examples can be found in FOL/ex/LocaleInst.thy.
ballarin@14175

  2060
* Proof import: new image HOL4 contains the imported library from
kleing@14624
  2061
  the HOL4 system with about 2500 theorems. It is imported by
kleing@14624
  2062
  replaying proof terms produced by HOL4 in Isabelle. The HOL4 image
kleing@14624
  2063
  can be used like any other Isabelle image.  See

  HOL/Import/HOL/README for more information.

  2065
ballarin@14398
  2066
* Simplifier:
ballarin@14398
  2067
  - Much improved handling of linear and partial orders.
ballarin@14398
  2068
    Reasoners for linear and partial orders are set up for type classes
ballarin@14398
  2069
    "linorder" and "order" respectively, and are added to the default simpset
ballarin@14398
  2070
    as solvers.  This means that the simplifier can build transitivity chains
ballarin@14398
  2071
    to solve goals from the assumptions.
ballarin@14398
  2072
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: old proofs break occasionally.  Typically, applications
ballarin@14398
  2073
    of blast or auto after simplification become unnecessary because the goal
ballarin@14398
  2074
    is solved by simplification already.
ballarin@14398

wenzelm@14731
  2076
* Numerics: new theory Ring_and_Field contains over 250 basic numerical laws,
paulson@14389
  2077
    all proved in axiomatic type classes for semirings, rings and fields.
paulson@14389
  2078
paulson@14389
  2079
* Numerics:
paulson@14389
  2080
  - Numeric types (nat, int, and in HOL-Complex rat, real, complex, etc.) are
wenzelm@14731
  2081
    now formalized using the Ring_and_Field theory mentioned above.
paulson@14389
  2082
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: simplification and arithmetic behaves somewhat differently
paulson@14389
  2083
    than before, because now they are set up once in a generic manner.
wenzelm@14731
  2084
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: many type-specific arithmetic laws have gone.
paulson@14480
  2085
    Look for the general versions in Ring_and_Field (and Power if they concern
paulson@14480
  2086
    exponentiation).
paulson@14389

* Unions and Intersections:
nipkow@15119
  2115
  The latex output syntax of UN and INT has been changed
nipkow@15119
  2116
  from "\Union x \in A. B" to "\Union_{x \in A} B"
nipkow@15119
  2117
  i.e. the index formulae has become a subscript.
nipkow@15119
  2118
  Similarly for "\Union x. B", and for \Inter instead of \Union.
nipkow@14380
  2119
kleing@14418
  2120
* Unions and Intersections over Intervals:
wenzelm@14731
  2121
  There is new short syntax "UN i<=n. A" for "UN i:{0..n}. A". There is
wenzelm@14731
  2122
  also an x-symbol version with subscripts "\<Union>\<^bsub>i <= n\<^esub>. A"
kleing@14418
  2123
  like in normal math, and corresponding versions for < and for intersection.
kleing@14418

nipkow@15677
  2125
* HOL/List: Ordering "lexico" is renamed "lenlex" and the standard

nipkow@14380

webertj@14464
  2131
* 'refute' command added to search for (finite) countermodels.  Only works
webertj@14464
  2132
  for a fragment of HOL.  The installation of an external SAT solver is
webertj@14464
  2133
  highly recommended.  See "HOL/Refute.thy" for details.
webertj@14464
  2134
berghofe@14602
  2135
* 'quickcheck' command: Allows to find counterexamples by evaluating
berghofe@14602
  2136
  formulae under an assignment of free variables to random values.
berghofe@14602
  2137
  In contrast to 'refute', it can deal with inductive datatypes,
berghofe@14602
  2138
  but cannot handle quantifiers. See "HOL/ex/Quickcheck_Examples.thy"
berghofe@14602
  2139
  for examples.

  2153
* Provers/simplifier:
berghofe@13618
  2154
nipkow@13781
  2155
  - Completely reimplemented method simp (ML: Asm_full_simp_tac):
berghofe@13618
  2156
    Assumptions are now subject to complete mutual simplification,
berghofe@13618
  2157
    not just from left to right. The simplifier now preserves
berghofe@13618
  2158
    the order of assumptions.
berghofe@13618
  2159
berghofe@13618
  2160
    Potential INCOMPATIBILITY:
berghofe@13618
  2161
nipkow@13781
  2162
    -- simp sometimes diverges where the old version did
nipkow@13781
  2163
       not, e.g. invoking simp on the goal
berghofe@13618
  2164
berghofe@13618
  2165
        [| P (f x); y = x; f x = f y |] ==> Q
berghofe@13618
  2166
nipkow@13781
  2167
       now gives rise to the infinite reduction sequence
nipkow@13781
  2168
nipkow@13781
  2169
        P(f x) --(f x = f y)--> P(f y) --(y = x)--> P(f x) --(f x = f y)--> ...
nipkow@13781
  2170
nipkow@13781
  2171
       Using "simp (asm_lr)" (ML: Asm_lr_simp_tac) instead often solves this
nipkow@13781
  2172
       kind of problem.
nipkow@13781
  2173
nipkow@13781
  2174
    -- Tactics combining classical reasoner and simplification (such as auto)
nipkow@13781
  2175
       are also affected by this change, because many of them rely on
nipkow@13781
  2176
       simp. They may sometimes diverge as well or yield a different numbers
nipkow@13781
  2177
       of subgoals. Try to use e.g. force, fastsimp, or safe instead of auto
nipkow@13781
  2178
       in case of problems. Sometimes subsequent calls to the classical
nipkow@13781
  2179
       reasoner will fail because a preceeding call to the simplifier too
nipkow@13781
  2180
       eagerly simplified the goal, e.g. deleted redundant premises.
berghofe@13618
  2181
berghofe@13618
  2182
  - The simplifier trace now shows the names of the applied rewrite rules
berghofe@13618
  2183
nipkow@13829
  2184
  - You can limit the number of recursive invocations of the simplifier
nipkow@13829
  2185
    during conditional rewriting (where the simplifie tries to solve the
nipkow@13829
  2186
    conditions before applying the rewrite rule):
nipkow@13829
  2187
    ML "simp_depth_limit := n"
nipkow@13829
  2188
    where n is an integer. Thus you can force termination where previously
nipkow@13829
  2189
    the simplifier would diverge.
nipkow@13829
  2190
ballarin@13835
  2191
  - Accepts free variables as head terms in congruence rules.  Useful in Isar.
nipkow@13829
  2192
ballarin@13938
  2193
  - No longer aborts on failed congruence proof.  Instead, the
ballarin@13938
  2194
    congruence is ignored.
ballarin@13938
  2195
berghofe@14008
  2196
* Pure: New generic framework for extracting programs from constructive
berghofe@14008
  2197
  proofs. See HOL/Extraction.thy for an example instantiation, as well
berghofe@14008
  2198
  as HOL/Extraction for some case studies.
berghofe@14008
  2199
nipkow@13868
  2200
* Pure: The main goal of the proof state is no longer shown by default, only
nipkow@13868
  2201
the subgoals. This behaviour is controlled by a new flag.
ballarin@13835
  2202
   PG menu: Isabelle/Isar -> Settings -> Show Main Goal
nipkow@13815
  2203
(ML: Proof.show_main_goal).
nipkow@13815
  2204
nipkow@13815
  2205
* Pure: You can find all matching introduction rules for subgoal 1, i.e. all
nipkow@13815
  2206
rules whose conclusion matches subgoal 1:
nipkow@13815
  2207
      PG menu: Isabelle/Isar -> Show me -> matching rules
nipkow@13815
  2208
The rules are ordered by how closely they match the subgoal.
nipkow@13815
  2209
In particular, rules that solve a subgoal outright are displayed first
nipkow@13815
  2210
(or rather last, the way they are printed).
nipkow@13815
  2211
(ML: ProofGeneral.print_intros())
nipkow@13815
  2212
nipkow@13815
  2213
* Pure: New flag trace_unify_fail causes unification to print
nipkow@13781
  2214
diagnostic information (PG: in trace buffer) when it fails. This is
nipkow@13781
  2215
useful for figuring out why single step proofs like rule, erule or
nipkow@13781
  2216
assumption failed.
nipkow@13781
  2217
nipkow@13815
  2218
* Pure: Locale specifications now produce predicate definitions
wenzelm@13410
  2219
according to the body of text (covering assumptions modulo local
wenzelm@13410
  2220
definitions); predicate "loc_axioms" covers newly introduced text,
wenzelm@13410
  2221
while "loc" is cumulative wrt. all included locale expressions; the
wenzelm@13410
  2222
latter view is presented only on export into the global theory
wenzelm@13410
  2223
context; potential INCOMPATIBILITY, use "(open)" option to fall back
wenzelm@13410
  2224
on the old view without predicates;
wenzelm@13410
  2225
wenzelm@13459
  2226
* Pure: predefined locales "var" and "struct" are useful for sharing
wenzelm@13459
  2227
parameters (as in CASL, for example); just specify something like
wenzelm@13459
  2228
``var x + var y + struct M'' as import;
wenzelm@13459
  2229
wenzelm@13463
  2230
* Pure: improved thms_containing: proper indexing of facts instead of
wenzelm@13463
  2231
raw theorems; check validity of results wrt. current name space;
wenzelm@13463
  2232
include local facts of proof configuration (also covers active
wenzelm@13541
  2233
locales), cover fixed variables in index; may use "_" in term
wenzelm@13541
  2234
specification; an optional limit for the number of printed facts may
wenzelm@13541
  2235
be given (the default is 40);
wenzelm@13541
  2236
wenzelm@13541
  2237
* Pure: disallow duplicate fact bindings within new-style theory files
wenzelm@13541
  2238
(batch-mode only);
wenzelm@13540
  2239
wenzelm@13463
  2240
* Provers: improved induct method: assumptions introduced by case
wenzelm@13463
  2241
"foo" are split into "foo.hyps" (from the rule) and "foo.prems" (from
wenzelm@13463
  2242
the goal statement); "foo" still refers to all facts collectively;
wenzelm@13463
  2243
paulson@13550
  2244
* Provers: the function blast.overloaded has been removed: all constants
paulson@13550
  2245
are regarded as potentially overloaded, which improves robustness in exchange
paulson@13550
  2246
for slight decrease in efficiency;
paulson@13550
  2247
nipkow@13781
  2248
* Provers/linorder: New generic prover for transitivity reasoning over
nipkow@13781
  2249
linear orders.  Note: this prover is not efficient!
nipkow@13781
  2250
wenzelm@13522
  2251
* Isar: preview of problems to finish 'show' now produce an error

*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@11572
  2373
wenzelm@11842
  2374
* greatly simplified document preparation setup, including more
wenzelm@11842
  2375
graceful interpretation of isatool usedir -i/-d/-D options, and more
wenzelm@11842
  2376
instructive isatool mkdir; users should basically be able to get
wenzelm@12899
  2377
started with "isatool mkdir HOL Test && isatool make"; alternatively,
wenzelm@12899
  2378
users may run a separate document processing stage manually like this:
wenzelm@12899
  2379
"isatool usedir -D output HOL Test && isatool document Test/output";
wenzelm@11842
  2380
wenzelm@11842
  2381
* theory dependency graph may now be incorporated into documents;
wenzelm@11842
  2382
isatool usedir -g true will produce session_graph.eps/.pdf for use
wenzelm@11842
  2383
with \includegraphics of LaTeX;
wenzelm@11842
  2384
wenzelm@11864
  2385
* proper spacing of consecutive markup elements, especially text
wenzelm@11864
  2386
blocks after section headings;
wenzelm@11864
  2387
wenzelm@11572
  2388
* support bold style (for single symbols only), input syntax is like
wenzelm@11572
  2389
this: "\<^bold>\<alpha>" or "\<^bold>A";
wenzelm@11572
  2390
wenzelm@11814
  2391
* \<bullet> is now output as bold \cdot by default, which looks much
wenzelm@11572
  2392
better in printed text;
wenzelm@11572
  2393
wenzelm@11712
  2394
* added default LaTeX bindings for \<tturnstile> and \<TTurnstile>;
wenzelm@11712
  2395
note that these symbols are currently unavailable in Proof General /
wenzelm@12769
  2396
X-Symbol; new symbols \<zero>, \<one>, ..., \<nine>, and \<euro>;
wenzelm@12690
  2397
wenzelm@12690
  2398
* isatool latex no longer depends on changed TEXINPUTS, instead
wenzelm@12690
  2399
isatool document copies the Isabelle style files to the target
wenzelm@12690
  2400
location;

*** Isar ***
wenzelm@11633
  2404
wenzelm@12312
  2405
* Pure/Provers: improved proof by cases and induction;
wenzelm@12280
  2406
  - 'case' command admits impromptu naming of parameters (such as
wenzelm@12280
  2407
    "case (Suc n)");
wenzelm@12280
  2408
  - 'induct' method divinates rule instantiation from the inductive
wenzelm@12280
  2409
    claim; no longer requires excessive ?P bindings for proper
wenzelm@12280
  2410
    instantiation of cases;
wenzelm@12280
  2411
  - 'induct' method properly enumerates all possibilities of set/type
wenzelm@12280
  2412
    rules; as a consequence facts may be also passed through *type*
wenzelm@12280
  2413
    rules without further ado;
wenzelm@12280
  2414
  - 'induct' method now derives symbolic cases from the *rulified*
wenzelm@12280
  2415
    rule (before it used to rulify cases stemming from the internal
wenzelm@12280
  2416
    atomized version); this means that the context of a non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
  2417
    statement becomes is included in the hypothesis, avoiding the
wenzelm@12280
  2418
    slightly cumbersome show "PROP ?case" form;
wenzelm@12280
  2419
  - 'induct' may now use elim-style induction rules without chaining
wenzelm@12280
  2420
    facts, using ``missing'' premises from the goal state; this allows
wenzelm@12280
  2421
    rules stemming from inductive sets to be applied in unstructured
wenzelm@12280
  2422
    scripts, while still benefitting from proper handling of non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
  2423
    statements; NB: major inductive premises need to be put first, all
wenzelm@12280
  2424
    the rest of the goal is passed through the induction;
wenzelm@12280
  2425
  - 'induct' proper support for mutual induction involving non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
  2426
    rule statements (uses the new concept of simultaneous goals, see
wenzelm@12280
  2427
    below);
wenzelm@12853
  2428
  - append all possible rule selections, but only use the first
wenzelm@12853
  2429
    success (no backtracking);
wenzelm@11995
  2430
  - removed obsolete "(simplified)" and "(stripped)" options of methods;
wenzelm@12754
  2431
  - undeclared rule case names default to numbers 1, 2, 3, ...;
wenzelm@12754
  2432
  - added 'print_induct_rules' (covered by help item in recent Proof
wenzelm@12754
  2433
    General versions);
wenzelm@11995
  2434
  - moved induct/cases attributes to Pure, methods to Provers;
wenzelm@11995
  2435
  - generic method setup instantiated for FOL and HOL;
wenzelm@11986
  2436
wenzelm@12163
  2437
* Pure: support multiple simultaneous goal statements, for example
wenzelm@12163
  2438
"have a: A and b: B" (same for 'theorem' etc.); being a pure
wenzelm@12163
  2439
meta-level mechanism, this acts as if several individual goals had
wenzelm@12163
  2440
been stated separately; in particular common proof methods need to be
wenzelm@12163
  2441
repeated in order to cover all claims; note that a single elimination
wenzelm@12163
  2442
step is *not* sufficient to establish the two conjunctions, so this
wenzelm@12163
  2443
fails:
wenzelm@12163
  2444
wenzelm@12163
  2445
  assume "A & B" then have A and B ..   (*".." fails*)
wenzelm@12163
  2446
wenzelm@12163
  2447
better use "obtain" in situations as above; alternative refer to
wenzelm@12163
  2448
multi-step methods like 'auto', 'simp_all', 'blast+' etc.;
wenzelm@12163
  2449
wenzelm@12078
  2450
* Pure: proper integration with ``locales''; unlike the original
webertj@15154
  2451
version by Florian Kammller, Isar locales package high-level proof
wenzelm@12078
  2452
contexts rather than raw logical ones (e.g. we admit to include
wenzelm@12280
  2453
attributes everywhere); operations on locales include merge and
wenzelm@12964
  2454
rename; support for implicit arguments (``structures''); simultaneous
wenzelm@12964
  2455
type-inference over imports and text; see also HOL/ex/Locales.thy for
wenzelm@12964
  2456
some examples;
wenzelm@12078
  2457
wenzelm@12707
  2458
* Pure: the following commands have been ``localized'', supporting a
wenzelm@12707
  2459
target locale specification "(in name)": 'lemma', 'theorem',
wenzelm@12707
  2460
'corollary', 'lemmas', 'theorems', 'declare'; the results will be
wenzelm@12707
  2461
stored both within the locale and at the theory level (exported and
wenzelm@12707
  2462
qualified by the locale name);
wenzelm@12707
  2463
wenzelm@12964
  2464
* Pure: theory goals may now be specified in ``long'' form, with
wenzelm@12964
  2465
ad-hoc contexts consisting of arbitrary locale elements. for example
wenzelm@12964
  2466
``lemma foo: fixes x assumes "A x" shows "B x"'' (local syntax and
wenzelm@12964
  2467
definitions may be given, too); the result is a meta-level rule with
wenzelm@12964
  2468
the context elements being discharged in the obvious way;
wenzelm@12964
  2469
wenzelm@12964
  2470
* Pure: new proof command 'using' allows to augment currently used
wenzelm@12964
  2471
facts after a goal statement ('using' is syntactically analogous to
wenzelm@12964
  2472
'apply', but acts on the goal's facts only); this allows chained facts
wenzelm@12964
  2473
to be separated into parts given before and after a claim, as in
wenzelm@12964
  2474
``from a and b have C using d and e <proof>'';
wenzelm@12078
  2475
wenzelm@11722
  2476
* Pure: renamed "antecedent" case to "rule_context";
wenzelm@11722
  2477
wenzelm@12964
  2478
* Pure: new 'judgment' command records explicit information about the
wenzelm@12964
  2479
object-logic embedding (used by several tools internally); no longer
wenzelm@12964
  2480
use hard-wired "Trueprop";
wenzelm@12964
  2481
wenzelm@11738
  2482
* Pure: added 'corollary' command;
wenzelm@11738
  2483
wenzelm@11722
  2484
* Pure: fixed 'token_translation' command;
wenzelm@11722
  2485
wenzelm@11899
  2486
* Pure: removed obsolete 'exported' attribute;
wenzelm@11899
  2487
wenzelm@11933
  2488
* Pure: dummy pattern "_" in is/let is now automatically lifted over
wenzelm@11933
  2489
bound variables: "ALL x. P x --> Q x" (is "ALL x. _ --> ?C x")
wenzelm@11899
  2490
supersedes more cumbersome ... (is "ALL x. _ x --> ?C x");
wenzelm@11899
  2491
wenzelm@11952
  2492
* Pure: method 'atomize' presents local goal premises as object-level
wenzelm@11952
  2493
statements (atomic meta-level propositions); setup controlled via
wenzelm@11952
  2494
rewrite rules declarations of 'atomize' attribute; example
wenzelm@11952
  2495
application: 'induct' method with proper rule statements in improper
wenzelm@11952
  2496
proof *scripts*;
wenzelm@11952
  2497
wenzelm@12106
  2498
* Pure: emulation of instantiation tactics (rule_tac, cut_tac, etc.)
wenzelm@12106
  2499
now consider the syntactic context of assumptions, giving a better
wenzelm@12106
  2500
chance to get type-inference of the arguments right (this is
wenzelm@12106
  2501
especially important for locales);
wenzelm@12106
  2502
wenzelm@12312
  2503
* Pure: "sorry" no longer requires quick_and_dirty in interactive
wenzelm@12312
  2504
mode;
wenzelm@12312
  2505
wenzelm@12405
  2506
* Pure/obtain: the formal conclusion "thesis", being marked as
wenzelm@12405
  2507
``internal'', may no longer be reference directly in the text;
wenzelm@12405
  2508
potential INCOMPATIBILITY, may need to use "?thesis" in rare
wenzelm@12405
  2509
situations;
wenzelm@12405
  2510
wenzelm@12405
  2511
* Pure: generic 'sym' attribute which declares a rule both as pure
wenzelm@12405
  2512
'elim?' and for the 'symmetric' operation;
wenzelm@12405
  2513
wenzelm@12877
  2514
* Pure: marginal comments ``--'' may now occur just anywhere in the
wenzelm@12877
  2515
text; the fixed correlation with particular command syntax has been
wenzelm@12877
  2516
discontinued;
wenzelm@12877
  2517
berghofe@13023
  2518
* Pure: new method 'rules' is particularly well-suited for proof
berghofe@13023
  2519
search in intuitionistic logic; a bit slower than 'blast' or 'fast',
berghofe@13023
  2520
but often produces more compact proof terms with less detours;
berghofe@13023
  2521
wenzelm@12364
  2522
* Pure/Provers/classical: simplified integration with pure rule
wenzelm@12364
  2523
attributes and methods; the classical "intro?/elim?/dest?"
wenzelm@12364
  2524
declarations coincide with the pure ones; the "rule" method no longer
wenzelm@12364
  2525
includes classically swapped intros; "intro" and "elim" methods no
wenzelm@12364
  2526
longer pick rules from the context; also got rid of ML declarations
wenzelm@12364
  2527
AddXIs/AddXEs/AddXDs; all of this has some potential for
wenzelm@12364
  2528
INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12364
  2529
wenzelm@12405
  2530
* Provers/classical: attribute 'swapped' produces classical inversions
wenzelm@12405
  2531
of introduction rules;
wenzelm@12405
  2532
wenzelm@12364
  2533
* Provers/simplifier: 'simplified' attribute may refer to explicit
wenzelm@12364
  2534
rules instead of full simplifier context; 'iff' attribute handles
wenzelm@12364
  2535
conditional rules;
wenzelm@11936
  2536
wenzelm@11745
  2537
* HOL: 'typedef' now allows alternative names for Rep/Abs morphisms;
wenzelm@11745
  2538
wenzelm@11690
  2539
* HOL: 'recdef' now fails on unfinished automated proofs, use
wenzelm@11633
  2540
"(permissive)" option to recover old behavior;
wenzelm@11633
  2541
wenzelm@11933
  2542
* HOL: 'inductive' no longer features separate (collective) attributes
wenzelm@11933
  2543
for 'intros' (was found too confusing);
wenzelm@11933
  2544
wenzelm@12405
  2545
* HOL: properly declared induction rules less_induct and
wenzelm@12405
  2546
wf_induct_rule;
wenzelm@12405
  2547
kleing@11788
  2548
wenzelm@11474
  2549
*** HOL ***
wenzelm@11474
  2550
wenzelm@11702
  2551
* HOL: moved over to sane numeral syntax; the new policy is as
wenzelm@11702
  2552
follows:
wenzelm@11702
  2553
wenzelm@11702
  2554
  - 0 and 1 are polymorphic constants, which are defined on any
wenzelm@11702
  2555
  numeric type (nat, int, real etc.);
wenzelm@11702
  2556
wenzelm@11702
  2557
  - 2, 3, 4, ... and -1, -2, -3, ... are polymorphic numerals, based
wenzelm@11702
  2558
  binary representation internally;
wenzelm@11702
  2559
wenzelm@11702
  2560
  - type nat has special constructor Suc, and generally prefers Suc 0
wenzelm@11702
  2561
  over 1::nat and Suc (Suc 0) over 2::nat;
wenzelm@11702
  2562
wenzelm@12364
  2563
This change may cause significant problems of INCOMPATIBILITY; here
wenzelm@12364
  2564
are some hints on converting existing sources:
wenzelm@11702
  2565
wenzelm@11702
  2566
  - due to the new "num" token, "-0" and "-1" etc. are now atomic
wenzelm@11702
  2567
  entities, so expressions involving "-" (unary or binary minus) need
wenzelm@11702
  2568
  to be spaced properly;
wenzelm@11702
  2569
wenzelm@11702
  2570
  - existing occurrences of "1" may need to be constraint "1::nat" or
wenzelm@11702
  2571
  even replaced by Suc 0; similar for old "2";
wenzelm@11702
  2572
wenzelm@11702
  2573
  - replace "#nnn" by "nnn", and "#-nnn" by "-nnn";
wenzelm@11702
  2574
wenzelm@11702
  2575
  - remove all special provisions on numerals in proofs;
wenzelm@11702
  2576
wenzelm@13042
  2577
* HOL: simp rules nat_number expand numerals on nat to Suc/0
wenzelm@12837
  2578
representation (depends on bin_arith_simps in the default context);
wenzelm@12837
  2579
wenzelm@12736
  2580
* HOL: symbolic syntax for x^2 (numeral 2);
wenzelm@12736
  2581
wenzelm@12335
  2582
* HOL: the class of all HOL types is now called "type" rather than
wenzelm@12335
  2583
"term"; INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt references to this type class
wenzelm@12335
  2584
in axclass/classes, instance/arities, and (usually rare) occurrences
wenzelm@12335
  2585
in typings (of consts etc.); internally the class is called
wenzelm@12335
  2586
"HOL.type", ML programs should refer to HOLogic.typeS;
wenzelm@12335
  2587
wenzelm@12280
  2588
* HOL/record package improvements:
wenzelm@12280
  2589
  - new derived operations "fields" to build a partial record section,
wenzelm@12280
  2590
    "extend" to promote a fixed record to a record scheme, and
wenzelm@12280
  2591
    "truncate" for the reverse; cf. theorems "xxx.defs", which are *not*
wenzelm@12280
  2592
    declared as simp by default;
wenzelm@12587
  2593
  - shared operations ("more", "fields", etc.) now need to be always
wenzelm@12587
  2594
    qualified) --- potential INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12280
  2595
  - removed "make_scheme" operations (use "make" with "extend") --
wenzelm@12280
  2596
    INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@11937
  2597
  - removed "more" class (simply use "term") -- INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12253
  2598
  - provides cases/induct rules for use with corresponding Isar
wenzelm@12253
  2599
    methods (for concrete records, record schemes, concrete more
wenzelm@12280
  2600
    parts, and schematic more parts -- in that order);
wenzelm@11930
  2601
  - internal definitions directly based on a light-weight abstract
wenzelm@11930
  2602
    theory of product types over typedef rather than datatype;
wenzelm@11930
  2603
berghofe@13023
  2604
* HOL: generic code generator for generating executable ML code from
berghofe@13023
  2605
specifications; specific support for HOL constructs such as inductive
berghofe@13023
  2606
datatypes and sets, as well as recursive functions; can be invoked
berghofe@13023
  2607
via 'generate_code' theory section;
berghofe@13023
  2608
wenzelm@11933
  2609
* HOL: canonical cases/induct rules for n-tuples (n = 3..7);
wenzelm@11933
  2610
paulson@13824
  2611
* HOL: consolidated and renamed several theories.  In particular:
wenzelm@14731
  2612
        Ord.thy has been absorbed into HOL.thy
wenzelm@14731
  2613
        String.thy has been absorbed into List.thy
wenzelm@14731
  2614
wenzelm@11802
  2615
* HOL: concrete setsum syntax "\<Sum>i:A. b" == "setsum (%i. b) A"
wenzelm@11802
  2616
(beware of argument permutation!);
wenzelm@11802
  2617
wenzelm@11657
  2618
* HOL: linorder_less_split superseded by linorder_cases;
wenzelm@11657
  2619
wenzelm@12917
  2620
* HOL/List: "nodups" renamed to "distinct";
nipkow@12889
  2621
wenzelm@11633
  2622
* HOL: added "The" definite description operator; move Hilbert's "Eps"
paulson@13824
  2623
to peripheral theory "Hilbert_Choice"; some INCOMPATIBILITIES:
paulson@13824
  2624
  - Ex_def has changed, now need to use some_eq_ex
wenzelm@11437
  2625
wenzelm@11572
  2626
* HOL: made split_all_tac safe; EXISTING PROOFS MAY FAIL OR LOOP, so
wenzelm@11572
  2627
in this (rare) case use:
wenzelm@11572
  2628
wenzelm@11572
  2629
  delSWrapper "split_all_tac"
wenzelm@11572
  2630
  addSbefore ("unsafe_split_all_tac", unsafe_split_all_tac)
wenzelm@11572
  2631
wenzelm@11572
  2632
* HOL: added safe wrapper "split_conv_tac" to claset; EXISTING PROOFS
wenzelm@11474
  2633
MAY FAIL;
nipkow@11361
  2634
wenzelm@11572
  2635
* HOL: introduced f^n = f o ... o f; warning: due to the limits of
wenzelm@11572
  2636
Isabelle's type classes, ^ on functions and relations has too general
wenzelm@11572
  2637
a domain, namely ('a * 'b) set and 'a => 'b; this means that it may be

* HOL/Relation: the prefix name of the infix "O" has been changed from
wenzelm@12917
  2641
"comp" to "rel_comp"; INCOMPATIBILITY: a few theorems have been
wenzelm@12917
  2642
renamed accordingly (eg "compI" -> "rel_compI").

wenzelm@11487
  2645
expressions;
wenzelm@11474
  2646
wenzelm@12457
  2647
* HOL: bounded abstraction now uses syntax "%" / "\<lambda>" instead
wenzelm@12457
  2648
of "lam" -- INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@11474
  2649
wenzelm@11933
  2650
* HOL: got rid of some global declarations (potential INCOMPATIBILITY
wenzelm@11933
  2651
for ML tools): const "()" renamed "Product_Type.Unity", type "unit"
wenzelm@11933
  2652
renamed "Product_Type.unit";
wenzelm@11611

wenzelm@12924
  2656
* HOL: removed obsolete theorem "optionE" (use "option.exhaust", or
wenzelm@12924
  2657
the "cases" method);

* HOL/IMP: updated and converted to new-style theory format; several
wenzelm@12608
  2663
parts turned into readable document, with proper Isar proof texts and
wenzelm@12608
  2664
some explanations (by Gerwin Klein);
wenzelm@12597
  2665
wenzelm@12734

* theory Lift: proper use of rep_datatype lift instead of ML hacks --
wenzelm@12280
  2680
potential INCOMPATIBILITY; now use plain induct_tac instead of former
wenzelm@12280
  2681
lift.induct_tac, always use UU instead of Undef;

* Isar: proper integration of logic-specific tools and packages,
wenzelm@12622
  2689
including theory commands '(co)inductive', '(co)datatype',
wenzelm@12622
  2690
'rep_datatype', 'inductive_cases', as well as methods 'ind_cases',
wenzelm@12622
  2691
'induct_tac', 'case_tac', and 'typecheck' (with attribute 'TC');
wenzelm@12622
  2692
