   Isabelle/jEdit is an advanced Prover IDE based on jEdit and
wenzelm@50572
    25
   Isabelle/Scala.  It provides a metaphor of continuous proof
wenzelm@50572
    26
   checking of a versioned collection of theory sources, with
wenzelm@44801
    27
   instantaneous feedback in real-time and rich semantic markup
wenzelm@44801
    28
   associated with the formal text.

   The classic Isabelle user interface is Proof General by David
wenzelm@41596
    31
   Aspinall and others.  It is a generic Emacs interface for proof
wenzelm@47805
    32
   assistants, including Isabelle.  Its main feature is script
wenzelm@50572
    33
   management, with stepwise proof scripting and partial locking of
wenzelm@50572
    34
   the editor buffer.
