==============================================
wenzelm@2553

wenzelm@27122
     4
New in this Isabelle version
wenzelm@27122
     5
----------------------------
haftmann@27104

wenzelm@27599
     7
*** General ***
wenzelm@27599
     8
wenzelm@28504
     9
* Simplified main Isabelle executables, with less surprises on
wenzelm@28504
    10
case-insensitive file-systems (such as Mac OS).
wenzelm@28504
    11
wenzelm@28504
    12
  - The main Isabelle tool wrapper is now called "isabelle" instead of
wenzelm@28504
    13
    "isatool."
wenzelm@28504
    14
wenzelm@28504
    15
  - The former "isabelle" alias for "isabelle-process" has been
wenzelm@28504
    16
    removed (should rarely occur to regular users).
wenzelm@28504
    17
wenzelm@28504
    18
  - The "Isabelle" alias for "isabelle-interface" has been removed.
wenzelm@28504
    19
wenzelm@28504
    20
Within scripts and make files, the Isabelle environment variables
wenzelm@28504
    21
ISABELLE_TOOL and ISABELLE_PROCESS replace old ISATOOL and ISABELLE,
wenzelm@28504
    22
respectively.  (The latter are still available as legacy feature.)
wenzelm@28504
    23
wenzelm@28504
    24
Also note that user interfaces are now better wrapped as regular
wenzelm@28504
    25
Isabelle tools instead of using the special isabelle-interface wrapper
wenzelm@28504
    26
(which can be confusing if the interface is uninstalled or changed
wenzelm@28504
    27
otherwise).  See "isabelle tty" and "isabelle emacs" for contemporary
wenzelm@28504
    28
examples.
wenzelm@28504
    29
wenzelm@28504
    30
INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt derivative scripts.  Users may need to
wenzelm@28504
    31
purge installed copies of Isabelle executables and re-run "isabelle
wenzelm@28504
    32
install -p ...", or use symlinks.
wenzelm@28504
    33
wenzelm@28252
    34
* The Isabelle System Manual (system) has been updated, with formally
wenzelm@28252
    35
checked references as hyperlinks.
wenzelm@28252
    36
wenzelm@27599
    37
* Generalized Isar history, with support for linear undo, direct state
wenzelm@27599
    38
addressing etc.
haftmann@27104
    39
wenzelm@27191
    40
* Recovered hiding of consts, which was accidentally broken in
wenzelm@27191
    41
Isabelle2007.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY, ``hide const c'' really
wenzelm@27191
    42
makes c inaccessible; consider using ``hide (open) const c'' instead.
wenzelm@27191
    43
wenzelm@27599
    44
* Removed exotic 'token_translation' command.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use ML
wenzelm@27599
    45
interface instead.
wenzelm@27599
    46
wenzelm@27599
    47
wenzelm@27599
    48
*** Pure ***
wenzelm@27599
    49
wenzelm@28629
    50
* Goal-directed proof now enforces strict proof irrelevance wrt. sort
wenzelm@28629
    51
hypotheses.  Sorts required in the course of reasoning need to be
wenzelm@28629
    52
covered by the constraints in the initial statement, completed by the
wenzelm@28629
    53
type instance information of the background theory.  Non-trivial sort
wenzelm@28629
    54
hypotheses, which rarely occur in practice, may be specified via
wenzelm@28633
    55
vacuous propositions of the form SORT_CONSTRAINT('a::c).  For example:
wenzelm@28629
    56
wenzelm@28629
    57
  lemma assumes "SORT_CONSTRAINT('a::empty)" shows False ...
wenzelm@28629
    58
wenzelm@28629
    59
The result contains an implicit sort hypotheses as before --
wenzelm@28631
    60
SORT_CONSTRAINT premises are eliminated as part of the canonical rule
wenzelm@28631
    61
normalization.
wenzelm@28629
    62
wenzelm@28178
    63
* Changed defaults for unify configuration options:
wenzelm@28178
    64
wenzelm@28178
    65
  unify_trace_bound = 50 (formerly 25)
wenzelm@28178
    66
  unify_search_bound = 60 (formerly 30)
wenzelm@28178
    67
haftmann@28143
    68
* Different bookkeeping for code equations:
haftmann@28143
    69
  a) On theory merge, the last set of code equations for a particular constant
haftmann@28143
    70
     is taken (in accordance with the policy applied by other parts of the
haftmann@28143
    71
     code generator framework).
haftmann@28143
    72
  b) Code equations stemming from explicit declarations (e.g. code attribute)
haftmann@28143
    73
     gain priority over default code equations stemming from definition, primrec,
haftmann@28143
    74
     fun etc.
haftmann@28143
    75
  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@28143
    76
haftmann@28058
    77
* Global versions of theorems stemming from classes do not carry
haftmann@28058
    78
a parameter prefix any longer.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@28058
    79
ballarin@27761
    80
* Dropped "locale (open)".  INCOMPATBILITY.
ballarin@27761
    81
ballarin@28085
    82
* Interpretation commands no longer attempt to simplify goal.
ballarin@27761
    83
INCOMPATIBILITY: in rare situations the generated goal differs.  Use
ballarin@27761
    84
methods intro_locales and unfold_locales to clarify.
haftmann@27681
    85
ballarin@28085
    86
* Interpretation commands no longer accept interpretation attributes.
ballarin@28085
    87
INCOMPATBILITY.
ballarin@28085
    88
haftmann@27651
    89
* Command 'instance': attached definitions no longer accepted.
wenzelm@27141
    90
INCOMPATIBILITY, use proper 'instantiation' target.
haftmann@27104
    91
haftmann@27104
    92
* Keyword 'code_exception' now named 'code_abort'.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@27104
    93
wenzelm@28114
    94
* The 'axiomatization' command now only works within a global theory
wenzelm@28114
    95
context.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@28114
    96
haftmann@27104
    97
wenzelm@27381
    98
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@27381
    99
wenzelm@27381
   100
* Antiquotation @{lemma} now imitates a regular terminal proof,
wenzelm@27392
   101
demanding keyword 'by' and supporting the full method expression
wenzelm@27519
   102
syntax just like the Isar command 'by'.
wenzelm@27381
   103
wenzelm@27381
   104
haftmann@27104
   105
*** HOL ***
haftmann@27104
   106
haftmann@28685
   107
* New classes "top" and "bot" with corresponding operations "top" and "bot"
haftmann@28685
   108
in theory Orderings;  instantiation of class "complete_lattice" requires
haftmann@28685
   109
instantiation of classes "top" and "bot".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@28685
   110
haftmann@28685
   111
* Changed definition lemma "less_fun_def" in order to provide an instance
haftmann@28685
   112
for preorders on functions;  use lemma "less_le" instead.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@28685
   113
wenzelm@28604
   114
* Unified theorem tables for both code code generators.  Thus
wenzelm@28604
   115
[code func] has disappeared and only [code] remains.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@28604
   116
haftmann@28685
   117
* Constants "undefined" and "default" replace "arbitrary".  Usually
haftmann@28685
   118
"undefined" is the right choice to replace "arbitrary", though logically
haftmann@28685
   119
there is no difference.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@28604
   120
wenzelm@28604
   121
* Generic ATP manager for Sledgehammer, based on ML threads instead of
wenzelm@28605
   122
Posix processes.  Avoids potentially expensive forking of the ML
wenzelm@28605
   123
process.  New thread-based implementation also works on non-Unix
wenzelm@28605
   124
platforms (Cygwin).  Provers are no longer hardwired, but defined
wenzelm@28606
   125
within the theory via plain ML wrapper functions.  Basic Sledgehammer
wenzelm@28606
   126
commands are covered in the isar-ref manual
wenzelm@28604
   127
wenzelm@28604
   128
* Wrapper scripts for remote SystemOnTPTP service allows to use
wenzelm@28475
   129
sledgehammer without local ATP installation (Vampire etc.).  See also
wenzelm@28475
   130
ISABELLE_HOME/contrib/SystemOnTPTP and the VAMPIRE_HOME setting
wenzelm@28604
   131
variable.  Other provers may be included via suitable ML wrappers, see
wenzelm@28604
   132
also src/HOL/ATP_Linkup.thy.
wenzelm@28474
   133
haftmann@28350
   134
* Normalization by evaluation now allows non-leftlinear equations.
haftmann@28350
   135
Declare with attribute [code nbe].
haftmann@28350
   136
haftmann@28350
   137
* Command "value" now integrates different evaluation
wenzelm@28248
   138
mechanisms.  The result of the first successful evaluation mechanism
wenzelm@28248
   139
is printed.  In square brackets a particular named evaluation
wenzelm@28248
   140
mechanisms may be specified (currently, [SML], [code] or [nbe]).  See
wenzelm@28248
   141
further src/HOL/ex/Eval_Examples.thy.
haftmann@28227
   142
wenzelm@28088
   143
* HOL/Orderings: class "wellorder" moved here, with explicit induction
wenzelm@28088
   144
rule "less_induct" as assumption.  For instantiation of "wellorder" by
wenzelm@28088
   145
means of predicate "wf", use rule wf_wellorderI.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@27823
   146
wenzelm@27793
   147
* HOL/Orderings: added class "preorder" as superclass of "order".
wenzelm@27793
   148
INCOMPATIBILITY: Instantiation proofs for order, linorder
wenzelm@27793
   149
etc. slightly changed.  Some theorems named order_class.* now named
wenzelm@27793
   150
preorder_class.*.
wenzelm@27793
   151
wenzelm@27793
   152
* HOL/Ring_and_Field and HOL/Divides: Definition of "op dvd" has been
wenzelm@27793
   153
moved to separate class dvd in Ring_and_Field; a couple of lemmas on
wenzelm@27793
   154
dvd has been generalized to class comm_semiring_1.  Likewise a bunch
wenzelm@27793
   155
of lemmas from Divides has been generalized from nat to class
wenzelm@27793
   156
semiring_div.  INCOMPATIBILITY.  This involves the following theorem
wenzelm@27793
   157
renames resulting from duplicate elimination:
haftmann@27651
   158
haftmann@27651
   159
    dvd_def_mod ~>          dvd_eq_mod_eq_0
haftmann@27651
   160
    zero_dvd_iff ~>         dvd_0_left_iff
haftmann@28559
   161
    dvd_0 ~>                dvd_0_right
haftmann@27651
   162
    DIVISION_BY_ZERO_DIV ~> div_by_0
haftmann@27651
   163
    DIVISION_BY_ZERO_MOD ~> mod_by_0
haftmann@27651
   164
    mult_div ~>             div_mult_self2_is_id
haftmann@27651
   165
    mult_mod ~>             mod_mult_self2_is_0
haftmann@27651
   166
wenzelm@27599
   167
* HOL/Library/GCD: Curried operations gcd, lcm (for nat) and zgcd,
wenzelm@27599
   168
zlcm (for int); carried together from various gcd/lcm developements in
wenzelm@27599
   169
the HOL Distribution.  zgcd and zlcm replace former igcd and ilcm;
wenzelm@27599
   170
corresponding theorems renamed accordingly.  INCOMPATIBILY.  To
wenzelm@27599
   171
recover tupled syntax, use syntax declarations like:
haftmann@27556
   172
haftmann@27556
   173
    hide (open) const gcd
haftmann@27556
   174
    abbreviation gcd where
haftmann@27556
   175
      "gcd == (%(a, b). GCD.gcd a b)"
haftmann@27556
   176
    notation (output)
haftmann@27556
   177
      GCD.gcd ("gcd '(_, _')")
haftmann@27556
   178
haftmann@27556
   179
(analogously for lcm, zgcd, zlcm).
haftmann@27556
   180
haftmann@27556
   181
* HOL/Real/Rational: 'Fract k 0' now equals '0'.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@27551
   182
haftmann@27651
   183
* New ML antiquotation @{code}: takes constant as argument, generates
haftmann@27651
   184
corresponding code in background and inserts name of the corresponding
haftmann@27651
   185
resulting ML value/function/datatype constructor binding in place.
haftmann@27651
   186
All occurrences of @{code} with a single ML block are generated
haftmann@27651
   187
simultaneously.  Provides a generic and safe interface for
haftmann@27651
   188
instrumentalizing code generation.  See HOL/ex/Code_Antiq for a toy
haftmann@27651
   189
example, or HOL/Complex/ex/ReflectedFerrack for a more ambitious
haftmann@27651
   190
application.  In future you ought refrain from ad-hoc compiling
haftmann@27651
   191
generated SML code on the ML toplevel.  Note that (for technical
haftmann@27651
   192
reasons) @{code} cannot refer to constants for which user-defined
haftmann@27651
   193
serializations are set.  Refer to the corresponding ML counterpart
haftmann@27651
   194
directly in that cases.
haftmann@27651
   195
haftmann@27424
   196
* Integrated image HOL-Complex with HOL.  Entry points Main.thy and
haftmann@27424
   197
Complex_Main.thy remain as they are.
haftmann@27424
   198
wenzelm@27599
   199
* New image HOL-Plain provides a minimal HOL with the most important
wenzelm@27599
   200
tools available (inductive, datatype, primrec, ...).  By convention
wenzelm@27599
   201
the corresponding theory Plain should be ancestor of every further
wenzelm@27599
   202
(library) theory.  Some library theories now have ancestor Plain
wenzelm@27599
   203
(instead of Main), thus theory Main occasionally has to be imported
wenzelm@27599
   204
explicitly.
haftmann@27421
   205
wenzelm@28248
   206
* The metis method now fails in the usual manner, rather than raising
wenzelm@28248
   207
an exception, if it determines that it cannot prove the theorem.
paulson@28233
   208
paulson@28700
   209
* The metis method no longer fails because the theorem is too trivial
paulson@28700
   210
(contains the empty clause).
paulson@28700
   211
wenzelm@27324
   212
* Methods "case_tac" and "induct_tac" now refer to the very same rules
wenzelm@27324
   213
as the structured Isar versions "cases" and "induct", cf. the
wenzelm@27324
   214
corresponding "cases" and "induct" attributes.  Mutual induction rules
wenzelm@27324
   215
are now presented as a list of individual projections
wenzelm@27324
   216
(e.g. foo_bar.inducts for types foo and bar); the old format with
wenzelm@27324
   217
explicit HOL conjunction is no longer supported.  INCOMPATIBILITY, in
wenzelm@27324
   218
rare situations a different rule is selected --- notably nested tuple
wenzelm@27324
   219
elimination instead of former prod.exhaust: use explicit (case_tac t
wenzelm@27324
   220
rule: prod.exhaust) here.
wenzelm@27122
   221
wenzelm@27141
   222
* Attributes "cases", "induct", "coinduct" support "del" option.
wenzelm@27141
   223
wenzelm@27122
   224
* Removed fact "case_split_thm", which duplicates "case_split".
wenzelm@27122
   225
wenzelm@27122
   226
* Command 'rep_datatype': instead of theorem names the command now
wenzelm@27122
   227
takes a list of terms denoting the constructors of the type to be
wenzelm@27122
   228
represented as datatype.  The characteristic theorems have to be
wenzelm@27122
   229
proven.  INCOMPATIBILITY.  Also observe that the following theorems
wenzelm@27122
   230
have disappeared in favour of existing ones:
wenzelm@27122
   231
haftmann@27104
   232
    unit_induct                 ~> unit.induct
haftmann@27104
   233
    prod_induct                 ~> prod.induct
haftmann@27104
   234
    sum_induct                  ~> sum.induct
haftmann@27104
   235
    Suc_Suc_eq                  ~> nat.inject
haftmann@27104
   236
    Suc_not_Zero Zero_not_Suc   ~> nat.distinct
haftmann@27104
   237
wenzelm@27122
   238
* Library/Nat_Infinity: added addition, numeral syntax and more
wenzelm@27122
   239
instantiations for algebraic structures.  Removed some duplicate
wenzelm@27122
   240
theorems.  Changes in simp rules.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@27104
   241
wenzelm@28088
   242
* ATP selection (E/Vampire/Spass) is now via Proof General's settings
wenzelm@28088
   243
menu.

ballarin@27696
   246
*** HOL-Algebra ***
ballarin@27696
   247
ballarin@27713
   248
* New locales for orders and lattices where the equivalence relation
ballarin@27713
   249
  is not restricted to equality.  INCOMPATIBILITY: all order and
ballarin@27713
   250
  lattice locales use a record structure with field eq for the
ballarin@27713
   251
  equivalence.
ballarin@27713
   252
ballarin@27713
   253
* New theory of factorial domains.
ballarin@27713
   254
ballarin@27696
   255
* Units_l_inv and Units_r_inv are now simprules by default.
ballarin@27696
   256
INCOMPATIBILITY.  Simplifier proof that require deletion of l_inv
ballarin@27696
   257
and/or r_inv will now also require deletion of these lemmas.
ballarin@27696
   258
ballarin@27696
   259
* Renamed the following theorems.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
ballarin@27696
   260
UpperD ~> Upper_memD
ballarin@27696
   261
LowerD ~> Lower_memD
ballarin@27696
   262
least_carrier ~> least_closed
ballarin@27696
   263
greatest_carrier ~> greatest_closed
ballarin@27696
   264
greatest_Lower_above ~> greatest_Lower_below
ballarin@27717
   265
one_zero ~> carrier_one_zero
ballarin@27717
   266
one_not_zero ~> carrier_one_not_zero  (collision with assumption)

wenzelm@28088
   283
wenzelm@28294
   284
* Simplified ML oracle interface Thm.add_oracle promotes 'a -> cterm
wenzelm@28294
   285
to 'a -> thm, while results are always tagged with an authentic oracle
wenzelm@28294
   286
name.  The Isar command 'oracle' is now polymorphic, no argument type
wenzelm@28294
   287
is specified.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to simplify existing oracle code
wenzelm@28294
   288
accordingly.  Note that extra performance may be gained by producing
wenzelm@28294
   289
the cterm carefully, avoiding slow Thm.cterm_of.
wenzelm@28294
   290
wenzelm@28282
   291
* ML bindings produced via Isar commands are stored within the Isar
wenzelm@28282
   292
context (theory or proof).  Consequently, commands like 'use' and 'ML'
wenzelm@28282
   293
become thread-safe and work with undo as expected (concerning
wenzelm@28282
   294
top-level bindings, not side-effects on global references).
wenzelm@28282
   295
INCOMPATIBILITY, need to provide proper Isar context when invoking the
wenzelm@28282
   296
compiler at runtime; really global bindings need to be given outside a
wenzelm@28282
   297
theory. [Poly/ML 5.2 or later]
wenzelm@28282
   298
wenzelm@28282
   299
* Command 'ML_prf' is analogous to 'ML' but works within a proof
wenzelm@28282
   300
context. Top-level ML bindings are stored within the proof context in
wenzelm@28282
   301
a purely sequential fashion, disregarding the nested proof structure.
wenzelm@28282
   302
ML bindings introduced by 'ML_prf' are discarded at the end of the
wenzelm@28282
   303
proof.  [Poly/ML 5.2 or later]
wenzelm@28282
   304
wenzelm@28099
   305
* Generic Toplevel.add_hook interface allows to analyze the result of
wenzelm@28103
   306
transactions.  E.g. see src/Pure/ProofGeneral/proof_general_pgip.ML
wenzelm@28103
   307
for theorem dependency output of transactions resulting in a new
wenzelm@28103
   308
theory state.
wenzelm@28099
   309
wenzelm@28088
   310
* Name bindings in higher specification mechanisms (notably
wenzelm@28088
   311
LocalTheory.define, LocalTheory.note, and derived packages) are now
wenzelm@28088
   312
formalized as type Name.binding, replacing old bstring.
wenzelm@28088
   313
INCOMPATIBILITY, need to wrap strings via Name.binding function, see
wenzelm@28088
   314
also Name.name_of.  Packages should pass name bindings given by the
wenzelm@28088
   315
user to underlying specification mechanisms; this enables precise
wenzelm@28088
   316
tracking of source positions, for example.
wenzelm@28088
   317
wenzelm@28089
   318
* Result facts (from PureThy.note_thms, ProofContext.note_thms,
wenzelm@28089
   319
LocalTheory.note etc.) now refer to the *full* internal name, not the
wenzelm@28089
   320
bstring as before.  INCOMPATIBILITY, not detected by ML type-checking!
wenzelm@28089
   321
wenzelm@27246
   322
* Rules and tactics that read instantiations (read_instantiate,
wenzelm@27246
   323
res_inst_tac, thin_tac, subgoal_tac etc.) now demand a proper proof
wenzelm@27246
   324
context, which is required for parsing and type-checking.  Moreover,
wenzelm@27246
   325
the variables are specified as plain indexnames, not string encodings
wenzelm@27246
   326
thereof.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@27246
   327
wenzelm@27287
   328
* Disposed old type and term read functions (Sign.read_def_typ,
wenzelm@27287
   329
Sign.read_typ, Sign.read_def_terms, Sign.read_term,
wenzelm@27287
   330
Thm.read_def_cterms, Thm.read_cterm etc.).  INCOMPATIBILITY, should
wenzelm@27287
   331
use regular Syntax.read_typ, Syntax.read_term, Syntax.read_typ_global,
wenzelm@27269
   332

   356
installed (the old isabelle-interface script silently falls back on

wenzelm@27061
   379
* The Isabelle/Isar Reference Manual (isar-ref) has been reorganized
wenzelm@27061
   380
and updated, with formally checked references as hyperlinks.
wenzelm@27061
   381
wenzelm@25994
   382
* Theory loader: use_thy (and similar operations) no longer set the
wenzelm@25994
   383
implicit ML context, which was occasionally hard to predict and in
wenzelm@25994
   384
conflict with concurrency.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use ML within Isar which
wenzelm@25994
   385
provides a proper context already.
wenzelm@25994
   386
wenzelm@26323
   387
* Theory loader: old-style ML proof scripts being *attached* to a thy
wenzelm@26323
   388
file are no longer supported.  INCOMPATIBILITY, regular 'uses' and
wenzelm@26323
   389
'use' within a theory file will do the job.
wenzelm@26323
   390
wenzelm@26650
   391
* Name space merge now observes canonical order, i.e. the second space
wenzelm@26650
   392
is inserted into the first one, while existing entries in the first
wenzelm@26659
   393
space take precedence.  INCOMPATIBILITY in rare situations, may try to
wenzelm@26650
   394
swap theory imports.
wenzelm@26650

INCOMPATIBILITY in identifier syntax etc.
wenzelm@27067
   398
wenzelm@27067

wenzelm@27067
   400
which was an accidental (undocumented) feature.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use
wenzelm@27067
   401
white space without escapes.
wenzelm@27067
   402
wenzelm@27067
   403
* Outer syntax: string tokens may contain arbitrary character codes
wenzelm@27067

berghofe@26681
   413
* Unused theorems can be found using the new command 'unused_thms'.
berghofe@26681
   414
There are three ways of invoking it:
berghofe@26681
   415
berghofe@26681
   416
(1) unused_thms
berghofe@26681
   417
     Only finds unused theorems in the current theory.
berghofe@26681
   418
berghofe@26681
   419
(2) unused_thms thy_1 ... thy_n -
berghofe@26681
   420
     Finds unused theorems in the current theory and all of its ancestors,
berghofe@26681
   421
     excluding the theories thy_1 ... thy_n and all of their ancestors.
berghofe@26681
   422
berghofe@26681
   423
(3) unused_thms thy_1 ... thy_n - thy'_1 ... thy'_m
berghofe@26681
   424
     Finds unused theorems in the theories thy'_1 ... thy'_m and all of
berghofe@26681
   425
     their ancestors, excluding the theories thy_1 ... thy_n and all of
berghofe@26681
   426
     their ancestors.
berghofe@26681
   427
wenzelm@26718
   428
In order to increase the readability of the list produced by
wenzelm@26718
   429
unused_thms, theorems that have been created by a particular instance
wenzelm@26874
   430
of a theory command such as 'inductive' or 'function' are considered
wenzelm@26874
   431
to belong to the same "group", meaning that if at least one theorem in
wenzelm@26718
   432
this group is used, the other theorems in the same group are no longer
wenzelm@26718
   433
reported as unused.  Moreover, if all theorems in the group are
wenzelm@26718
   434
unused, only one theorem in the group is displayed.
wenzelm@26718
   435
wenzelm@26718
   436
Note that proof objects have to be switched on in order for
wenzelm@26718
   437
unused_thms to work properly (i.e. !proofs must be >= 1, which is
wenzelm@26874
   438
usually the case when using Proof General with the default settings).
berghofe@26681
   439
wenzelm@26650
   440
* Authentic naming of facts disallows ad-hoc overwriting of previous
wenzelm@26650
   441
theorems within the same name space.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to remove
wenzelm@26650
   442
duplicate fact bindings, or even accidental fact duplications.  Note
wenzelm@26650
   443
that tools may maintain dynamically scoped facts systematically, using
wenzelm@26650
   444
PureThy.add_thms_dynamic.
wenzelm@26650
   445
wenzelm@26660
   446
* Command 'hide' now allows to hide from "fact" name space as well.
wenzelm@26660
   447
wenzelm@26496
   448
* Eliminated destructive theorem database, simpset, claset, and
wenzelm@26496
   449
clasimpset.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY, really need to observe linear
wenzelm@26496
   450
update of theories within ML code.
wenzelm@26479
   451
wenzelm@26955
   452
* Eliminated theory ProtoPure and CPure, leaving just one Pure theory.
wenzelm@26955
   453
INCOMPATIBILITY, object-logics depending on former Pure require
wenzelm@26955
   454
additional setup PureThy.old_appl_syntax_setup; object-logics
wenzelm@26955
   455
depending on former CPure need to refer to Pure.
wenzelm@26650
   456
wenzelm@26495
   457
* Commands 'use' and 'ML' are now purely functional, operating on
wenzelm@26479
   458
theory/local_theory.  Removed former 'ML_setup' (on theory), use 'ML'
wenzelm@26479
   459
instead.  Added 'ML_val' as mere diagnostic replacement for 'ML'.
wenzelm@26479
   460
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@26479
   461
wenzelm@26874

* Command 'setup': discontinued implicit version with ML reference.
wenzelm@26434
   463
wenzelm@25970

wenzelm@26201
   473
"fact".  INCOMPATIBILITY: need to name facts explicitly in rare

   474
situations.

   475
wenzelm@26925

* Method "cases", "induct", "coinduct": removed obsolete/undocumented
wenzelm@26925
   477
"(open)" option, which used to expose internal bound variables to the
wenzelm@26925
   478

wenzelm@26925
   479
wenzelm@26925
   480
* Isar statements: removed obsolete case "rule_context".
wenzelm@26925
   481
INCOMPATIBILITY, better use explicit fixes/assumes.
wenzelm@26925
   482
wenzelm@26874
   483
* Locale proofs: default proof step now includes 'unfold_locales';
wenzelm@26874
   484
hence 'proof' without argument may be used to unfold locale
wenzelm@26874
   485

   491
both pdf and dvi (hyperlinks usually work in xdvi as well); removed
wenzelm@26914
   492
obsolete thumbpdf setup (contemporary PDF viewers do this on the

* Method "induct_scheme" derives user-specified induction rules
wenzelm@27067

from well-founded induction and completeness of patterns. This factors
wenzelm@27067
   525
out some operations that are done internally by the function package
wenzelm@27067
   526
and makes them available separately.  See

* More flexible generation of measure functions for termination
wenzelm@27067
   530
proofs: Measure functions can be declared by proving a rule of the
wenzelm@27067
   531
form "is_measure f" and giving it the [measure_function] attribute.
wenzelm@27067
   532
The "is_measure" predicate is logically meaningless (always true), and
wenzelm@27067
   533
just guides the heuristic.  To find suitable measure functions, the
wenzelm@27067

wenzelm@25737
   748
non-critical.  The global print_mode reference is for session

   810
wenzelm@17918
   811
* Theory syntax: the old non-Isar theory file format has been
wenzelm@17918
   812
discontinued altogether.  Note that ML proof scripts may still be used
wenzelm@17918
   813
with Isar theories; migration is usually quite simple with the ML
wenzelm@17918
   814
function use_legacy_bindings.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17918
   815
wenzelm@22871
   816
* Theory syntax: some popular names (e.g. 'class', 'declaration',
wenzelm@22871
   817
'fun', 'help', 'if') are now keywords.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use double
wenzelm@22871
   818
quotes.
wenzelm@19814
   819
wenzelm@23888
   820
* Theory loader: be more serious about observing the static theory
wenzelm@23888
   821
header specifications (including optional directories), but not the
wenzelm@24172
   822
accidental file locations of previously successful loads.  The strict
wenzelm@24172
   823
update policy of former update_thy is now already performed by
wenzelm@24172
   824
use_thy, so the former has been removed; use_thys updates several
wenzelm@24172
   825
theories simultaneously, just as 'imports' within a theory header
wenzelm@24172
   826
specification, but without merging the results.  Potential
wenzelm@24172
   827
INCOMPATIBILITY: may need to refine theory headers and commands
wenzelm@24172
   828
ROOT.ML which depend on load order.
wenzelm@23888
   829
wenzelm@23888
   830
* Theory loader: optional support for content-based file
wenzelm@23888
   831
identification, instead of the traditional scheme of full physical
wenzelm@23889
   832
path plus date stamp; configured by the ISABELLE_FILE_IDENT setting
wenzelm@23888
   833
(cf. the system manual).  The new scheme allows to work with
wenzelm@23888
   834
non-finished theories in persistent session images, such that source
wenzelm@23888
   835
files may be moved later on without requiring reloads.
wenzelm@23888
   836
wenzelm@24187
   837
* Theory loader: old-style ML proof scripts being *attached* to a thy
wenzelm@24187
   838
file (with the same base name as the theory) are considered a legacy
wenzelm@24800
   839
feature, which will disappear eventually. Even now, the theory loader
wenzelm@24800
   840
no longer maintains dependencies on such files.
wenzelm@24800
   841
wenzelm@24800
   842
* Syntax: the scope for resolving ambiguities via type-inference is
wenzelm@24800
   843
now limited to individual terms, instead of whole simultaneous
wenzelm@24234
   844
specifications as before. This greatly reduces the complexity of the
wenzelm@24234
   845
syntax module and improves flexibility by separating parsing and
wenzelm@24234
   846
type-checking. INCOMPATIBILITY: additional type-constraints (explicit
wenzelm@24234
   847
'fixes' etc.) are required in rare situations.
wenzelm@24234
   848
wenzelm@25034
   849
* Syntax: constants introduced by new-style packages ('definition',
wenzelm@25034
   850
'abbreviation' etc.) are passed through the syntax module in
wenzelm@25034
   851
``authentic mode''. This means that associated mixfix annotations
wenzelm@25034
   852
really stick to such constants, independently of potential name space
wenzelm@25034
   853
ambiguities introduced later on. INCOMPATIBILITY: constants in parse
wenzelm@25034
   854
trees are represented slightly differently, may need to adapt syntax
wenzelm@25034
   855
translations accordingly. Use CONST marker in 'translations' and
wenzelm@25034
   856
@{const_syntax} antiquotation in 'parse_translation' etc.
wenzelm@25034
   857
wenzelm@17981
   858
* Legacy goal package: reduced interface to the bare minimum required
wenzelm@17981
   859
to keep existing proof scripts running.  Most other user-level
wenzelm@17981
   860
functions are now part of the OldGoals structure, which is *not* open
wenzelm@17981
   861
by default (consider isatool expandshort before open OldGoals).
wenzelm@17981
   862
Removed top_sg, prin, printyp, pprint_term/typ altogether, because
wenzelm@17981
   863
these tend to cause confusion about the actual goal (!) context being
wenzelm@17981
   864
used here, which is not necessarily the same as the_context().
wenzelm@17918
   865
wenzelm@23379
   866
* Command 'find_theorems': supports "*" wild-card in "name:"
wenzelm@23379
   867
criterion; "with_dups" option.  Certain ProofGeneral versions might
wenzelm@23379
   868
support a specific search form (see ProofGeneral/CHANGES).
webertj@22965
   869
wenzelm@20370
   870
* The ``prems limit'' option (cf. ProofContext.prems_limit) is now -1
wenzelm@20370
   871
by default, which means that "prems" (and also "fixed variables") are
wenzelm@20370
   872
suppressed from proof state output.  Note that the ProofGeneral
wenzelm@20370
   873
settings mechanism allows to change and save options persistently, but
wenzelm@20370
   874
older versions of Isabelle will fail to start up if a negative prems
wenzelm@20370
   875
limit is imposed.
wenzelm@20370
   876
wenzelm@21308
   877
* Local theory targets may be specified by non-nested blocks of
wenzelm@21308
   878
``context/locale/class ... begin'' followed by ``end''.  The body may
wenzelm@21308
   879
contain definitions, theorems etc., including any derived mechanism
wenzelm@21308
   880
that has been implemented on top of these primitives.  This concept
wenzelm@21308
   881
generalizes the existing ``theorem (in ...)'' towards more versatility
wenzelm@21308
   882
and scalability.
wenzelm@21308
   883
wenzelm@21960
   884
* Proof General interface: proper undo of final 'end' command;
wenzelm@21960
   885
discontinued Isabelle/classic mode (ML proof scripts).

*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@17865
   889
wenzelm@21717
   890
* Added antiquotation @{theory name} which prints the given name,
wenzelm@21717
   891
after checking that it refers to a valid ancestor theory in the
wenzelm@21717
   892
current context.
haftmann@21339
   893
wenzelm@17869
   894
* Added antiquotations @{ML_type text} and @{ML_struct text} which
wenzelm@17869
   895
check the given source text as ML type/structure, printing verbatim.
wenzelm@17865
   896
wenzelm@21717
   897
* Added antiquotation @{abbrev "c args"} which prints the abbreviation
wenzelm@21717
   898
"c args == rhs" given in the current context.  (Any number of
wenzelm@21735
   899
arguments may be given on the LHS.)

* The 'class' package offers a combination of axclass and locale to
wenzelm@25129
   905
achieve Haskell-like type classes in Isabelle.  Definitions and
wenzelm@25129
   906
theorems within a class context produce both relative results (with
wenzelm@25129
   907
implicit parameters according to the locale context), and polymorphic
wenzelm@25129
   908
constants with qualified polymorphism (according to the class
wenzelm@25129
   909
context).  Within the body context of a 'class' target, a separate
wenzelm@25129
   910
syntax layer ("user space type system") takes care of converting
wenzelm@25129
   911
between global polymorphic consts and internal locale representation.

* Generic code generator framework allows to generate executable
wenzelm@24800
   916
code for ML and Haskell (including Isabelle classes).  A short usage
wenzelm@24800
   917
sketch:
haftmann@20188
   918
haftmann@20188
   919
    internal compilation:
haftmann@25199
   920
        export_code <list of constants (term syntax)> in SML
haftmann@20453
   921
    writing SML code to a file:
haftmann@25199
   922
        export_code <list of constants (term syntax)> in SML <filename>
haftmann@22735
   923
    writing OCaml code to a file:
haftmann@25199
   924
        export_code <list of constants (term syntax)> in OCaml <filename>
haftmann@20188
   925
    writing Haskell code to a bunch of files:
haftmann@25199

        export_code <list of constants (term syntax)> in Haskell <filename>
haftmann@25199
   927
haftmann@25199

    evaluating closed propositions to True/False using code generation:
haftmann@25184
   929
        method ``eval''
haftmann@25184
   930
haftmann@25184
   931
Reasonable default setup of framework in HOL.
haftmann@20453
   932
haftmann@20453
   933
Theorem attributs for selecting and transforming function equations theorems:
haftmann@20453
   934
haftmann@22845
   935
    [code fun]:        select a theorem as function equation for a specific constant
haftmann@22845
   936
    [code fun del]:    deselect a theorem as function equation for a specific constant
haftmann@22845
   937
    [code inline]:     select an equation theorem for unfolding (inlining) in place
haftmann@22845
   938
    [code inline del]: deselect an equation theorem for unfolding (inlining) in place
haftmann@20453
   939
haftmann@22735
   940
User-defined serializations (target in {SML, OCaml, Haskell}):
haftmann@20453
   941
haftmann@20453
   942
    code_const <and-list of constants (term syntax)>
haftmann@20453
   943
      {(target) <and-list of const target syntax>}+
haftmann@20453
   944
haftmann@20453
   945
    code_type <and-list of type constructors>
haftmann@20453
   946
      {(target) <and-list of type target syntax>}+
haftmann@20453
   947
haftmann@20453
   948
    code_instance <and-list of instances>
haftmann@20453
   949
      {(target)}+
haftmann@20453
   950
        where instance ::= <type constructor> :: <class>
haftmann@20453
   951
haftmann@20453
   952
    code_class <and_list of classes>
haftmann@20453
   953
      {(target) <and-list of class target syntax>}+
haftmann@20453
   954
        where class target syntax ::= <class name> {where {<classop> == <target syntax>}+}?
haftmann@20453
   955
haftmann@25199
   956
code_instance and code_class only are effective to target Haskell.
haftmann@22735
   957
wenzelm@25177
   958
For example usage see src/HOL/ex/Codegenerator.thy and
wenzelm@25177
   959
src/HOL/ex/Codegenerator_Pretty.thy.  A separate tutorial on code
wenzelm@24800
   960
generation from Isabelle/HOL theories is available via "isatool doc
wenzelm@24800
   961
codegen".
haftmann@20188
   962
wenzelm@25129
   963
* Code generator: consts in 'consts_code' Isar commands are now
wenzelm@25129
   964
referred to by usual term syntax (including optional type
wenzelm@25129
   965
annotations).
wenzelm@25129
   966
wenzelm@19254
   967
* Command 'no_translations' removes translation rules from theory
wenzelm@19254
   968
syntax.
wenzelm@19254
   969
wenzelm@19625
   970
* Overloaded definitions are now actually checked for acyclic
wenzelm@19714
   971
dependencies.  The overloading scheme is slightly more general than
wenzelm@19714
   972
that of Haskell98, although Isabelle does not demand an exact
wenzelm@19714
   973
correspondence to type class and instance declarations.
wenzelm@19714
   974
INCOMPATIBILITY, use ``defs (unchecked overloaded)'' to admit more
wenzelm@19714
   975
exotic versions of overloading -- at the discretion of the user!
wenzelm@19711
   976
wenzelm@19711
   977
Polymorphic constants are represented via type arguments, i.e. the
wenzelm@19711
   978
instantiation that matches an instance against the most general
wenzelm@19711
   979
declaration given in the signature.  For example, with the declaration
wenzelm@19711
   980
c :: 'a => 'a => 'a, an instance c :: nat => nat => nat is represented
wenzelm@19711
   981
as c(nat).  Overloading is essentially simultaneous structural
wenzelm@19711
   982
recursion over such type arguments.  Incomplete specification patterns
wenzelm@19714
   983
impose global constraints on all occurrences, e.g. c('a * 'a) on the
wenzelm@19715
   984
LHS means that more general c('a * 'b) will be disallowed on any RHS.
wenzelm@19714
   985
Command 'print_theory' outputs the normalized system of recursive
wenzelm@19714
   986
equations, see section "definitions".
wenzelm@19625
   987
wenzelm@24086
   988
* Configuration options are maintained within the theory or proof
wenzelm@24086
   989
context (with name and type bool/int/string), providing a very simple
wenzelm@24086
   990
interface to a poor-man's version of general context data.  Tools may
wenzelm@24110
   991
declare options in ML (e.g. using Attrib.config_int) and then refer to
wenzelm@24110
   992
these values using Config.get etc.  Users may change options via an
wenzelm@24110
   993
associated attribute of the same name.  This form of context
wenzelm@24110
   994
declaration works particularly well with commands 'declare' or
wenzelm@24110
   995
'using', for example ``declare [[foo = 42]]''.  Thus it has become
wenzelm@24110
   996
very easy to avoid global references, which would not observe Isar
wenzelm@24110
   997
toplevel undo/redo and fail to work with multithreading.
wenzelm@24086
   998
wenzelm@24172
   999
Various global ML references of Pure and HOL have been turned into
wenzelm@24172

configuration options:

wenzelm@24086
  1012
* Named collections of theorems may be easily installed as context
wenzelm@24800
  1013
data using the functor NamedThmsFun (see also
wenzelm@24086
  1014
src/Pure/Tools/named_thms.ML).  The user may add or delete facts via
wenzelm@24110
  1015
attributes; there is also a toplevel print command.  This facility is
wenzelm@24110
  1016
just a common case of general context data, which is the preferred way
wenzelm@24110
  1017
for anything more complex than just a list of facts in canonical
wenzelm@24110
  1018
order.
wenzelm@24086
  1019
wenzelm@24032
  1020
* Isar: command 'declaration' augments a local theory by generic
wenzelm@24032
  1021
declaration functions written in ML.  This enables arbitrary content
wenzelm@24032
  1022
being added to the context, depending on a morphism that tells the
wenzelm@24032
  1023
difference of the original declaration context wrt. the application
wenzelm@24032
  1024
context encountered later on.
wenzelm@24032
  1025
wenzelm@24032
  1026
* Isar: proper interfaces for simplification procedures.  Command
wenzelm@24032
  1027
'simproc_setup' declares named simprocs (with match patterns, and body
wenzelm@24032
  1028
text in ML).  Attribute "simproc" adds/deletes simprocs in the current
wenzelm@24032
  1029
context.  ML antiquotation @{simproc name} retrieves named simprocs.
wenzelm@24032
  1030
wenzelm@24032
  1031
* Isar: an extra pair of brackets around attribute declarations
wenzelm@24032
  1032
abbreviates a theorem reference involving an internal dummy fact,
wenzelm@24032
  1033
which will be ignored later --- only the effect of the attribute on
wenzelm@24032
  1034
the background context will persist.  This form of in-place
wenzelm@24032
  1035
declarations is particularly useful with commands like 'declare' and
wenzelm@24032
  1036
'using', for example ``have A using [[simproc a]] by simp''.
wenzelm@24032
  1037
wenzelm@23369
  1038
* Isar: method "assumption" (and implicit closing of subproofs) now
wenzelm@23369
  1039
takes simple non-atomic goal assumptions into account: after applying
wenzelm@23369
  1040
an assumption as a rule the resulting subgoals are solved by atomic
wenzelm@23369
  1041
assumption steps.  This is particularly useful to finish 'obtain'
wenzelm@23369
  1042
goals, such as "!!x. (!!x. P x ==> thesis) ==> P x ==> thesis",
wenzelm@23369
  1043
without referring to the original premise "!!x. P x ==> thesis" in the
wenzelm@23369
  1044
Isar proof context.  POTENTIAL INCOMPATIBILITY: method "assumption" is
wenzelm@23369
  1045
more permissive.
wenzelm@23369
  1046
wenzelm@23369
  1047
* Isar: implicit use of prems from the Isar proof context is
wenzelm@23369
  1048
considered a legacy feature.  Common applications like ``have A .''
wenzelm@23369
  1049
may be replaced by ``have A by fact'' or ``note `A`''.  In general,
wenzelm@23369
  1050
referencing facts explicitly here improves readability and
wenzelm@23369
  1051
maintainability of proof texts.
wenzelm@23369
  1052
wenzelm@17865
  1053
* Isar: improper proof element 'guess' is like 'obtain', but derives
wenzelm@17865
  1054
the obtained context from the course of reasoning!  For example:
wenzelm@17865
  1055
wenzelm@17865
  1056
  assume "EX x y. A x & B y"   -- "any previous fact"
wenzelm@17865
  1057
  then guess x and y by clarify
wenzelm@17865
  1058
wenzelm@17865
  1059
This technique is potentially adventurous, depending on the facts and
wenzelm@17865
  1060
proof tools being involved here.
wenzelm@17865
  1061
wenzelm@18020
  1062
* Isar: known facts from the proof context may be specified as literal
wenzelm@18020
  1063
propositions, using ASCII back-quote syntax.  This works wherever
wenzelm@18020
  1064
named facts used to be allowed so far, in proof commands, proof
wenzelm@18020
  1065
methods, attributes etc.  Literal facts are retrieved from the context
wenzelm@18020
  1066
according to unification of type and term parameters.  For example,
wenzelm@18020
  1067
provided that "A" and "A ==> B" and "!!x. P x ==> Q x" are known
wenzelm@18020
  1068
theorems in the current context, then these are valid literal facts:
wenzelm@18020
  1069
`A` and `A ==> B` and `!!x. P x ==> Q x" as well as `P a ==> Q a` etc.
wenzelm@18020
  1070
wenzelm@18020
  1071
There is also a proof method "fact" which does the same composition
wenzelm@18044
  1072
for explicit goal states, e.g. the following proof texts coincide with
wenzelm@18044
  1073
certain special cases of literal facts:
wenzelm@18020
  1074
wenzelm@18020
  1075
  have "A" by fact                 ==  note `A`
wenzelm@18020
  1076
  have "A ==> B" by fact           ==  note `A ==> B`
wenzelm@18020
  1077
  have "!!x. P x ==> Q x" by fact  ==  note `!!x. P x ==> Q x`
wenzelm@18020
  1078
  have "P a ==> Q a" by fact       ==  note `P a ==> Q a`
wenzelm@18020
  1079
wenzelm@20118
  1080
* Isar: ":" (colon) is no longer a symbolic identifier character in
wenzelm@20118
  1081
outer syntax.  Thus symbolic identifiers may be used without
wenzelm@20118
  1082
additional white space in declarations like this: ``assume *: A''.
wenzelm@20118
  1083
wenzelm@20013
  1084
* Isar: 'print_facts' prints all local facts of the current context,
wenzelm@20013
  1085
both named and unnamed ones.
wenzelm@20013
  1086
wenzelm@18308
  1087
* Isar: 'def' now admits simultaneous definitions, e.g.:
wenzelm@18308
  1088
wenzelm@18308
  1089
  def x == "t" and y == "u"
wenzelm@18308
  1090
wenzelm@18540
  1091
* Isar: added command 'unfolding', which is structurally similar to
wenzelm@18540
  1092
'using', but affects both the goal state and facts by unfolding given
wenzelm@18815
  1093
rewrite rules.  Thus many occurrences of the 'unfold' method or
wenzelm@18540
  1094
'unfolded' attribute may be replaced by first-class proof text.
wenzelm@18540
  1095
wenzelm@18815
  1096
* Isar: methods 'unfold' / 'fold', attributes 'unfolded' / 'folded',
wenzelm@18815
  1097
and command 'unfolding' now all support object-level equalities
wenzelm@18815
  1098
(potentially conditional).  The underlying notion of rewrite rule is
wenzelm@18815
  1099
analogous to the 'rule_format' attribute, but *not* that of the
wenzelm@18815
  1100
Simplifier (which is usually more generous).
wenzelm@18815
  1101
kleing@24238
  1102
* Isar: the new attribute [rotated n] (default n = 1) rotates the
kleing@24238
  1103
premises of a theorem by n. Useful in conjunction with drule.
kleing@24238
  1104
wenzelm@19220
  1105
* Isar: the goal restriction operator [N] (default N = 1) evaluates a
wenzelm@19220
  1106
method expression within a sandbox consisting of the first N
wenzelm@19240
  1107
sub-goals, which need to exist.  For example, ``simp_all [3]''
wenzelm@19240
  1108
simplifies the first three sub-goals, while (rule foo, simp_all)[]
wenzelm@19240
  1109
simplifies all new goals that emerge from applying rule foo to the
wenzelm@19240
  1110
originally first one.
wenzelm@19220
  1111
wenzelm@19814
  1112
* Isar: schematic goals are no longer restricted to higher-order
wenzelm@19814
  1113
patterns; e.g. ``lemma "?P(?x)" by (rule TrueI)'' now works as
wenzelm@19814
  1114
expected.
wenzelm@19814
  1115
wenzelm@18901
  1116
* Isar: the conclusion of a long theorem statement is now either
wenzelm@18901
  1117
'shows' (a simultaneous conjunction, as before), or 'obtains'
wenzelm@18901
  1118
(essentially a disjunction of cases with local parameters and
wenzelm@18901
  1119
assumptions).  The latter allows to express general elimination rules
wenzelm@18910
  1120
adequately; in this notation common elimination rules look like this:
wenzelm@18901
  1121
wenzelm@18901
  1122
  lemma exE:    -- "EX x. P x ==> (!!x. P x ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1123
    assumes "EX x. P x"
wenzelm@18901
  1124
    obtains x where "P x"
wenzelm@18901
  1125
wenzelm@18901
  1126
  lemma conjE:  -- "A & B ==> (A ==> B ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1127
    assumes "A & B"
wenzelm@18901
  1128
    obtains A and B
wenzelm@18901
  1129
wenzelm@18901
  1130
  lemma disjE:  -- "A | B ==> (A ==> thesis) ==> (B ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1131
    assumes "A | B"
wenzelm@18901
  1132
    obtains
wenzelm@18901
  1133
      A
wenzelm@18901
  1134
    | B
wenzelm@18901
  1135
wenzelm@18910
  1136
The subsequent classical rules even refer to the formal "thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1137
explicitly:
wenzelm@18901
  1138
wenzelm@18901
  1139
  lemma classical:     -- "(~ thesis ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1140
    obtains "~ thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1141
wenzelm@18910
  1142
  lemma Peirce's_Law:  -- "((thesis ==> something) ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18910
  1143
    obtains "thesis ==> something"
wenzelm@18901
  1144
wenzelm@18901
  1145
The actual proof of an 'obtains' statement is analogous to that of the
wenzelm@18910
  1146
Isar proof element 'obtain', only that there may be several cases.
wenzelm@18910
  1147
Optional case names may be specified in parentheses; these will be
wenzelm@18910
  1148
available both in the present proof and as annotations in the
wenzelm@18910
  1149
resulting rule, for later use with the 'cases' method (cf. attribute
wenzelm@18910
  1150
case_names).
wenzelm@18901
  1151
wenzelm@21447
  1152
* Isar: the assumptions of a long theorem statement are available as
wenzelm@21447
  1153
"assms" fact in the proof context.  This is more appropriate than the
wenzelm@21447
  1154
(historical) "prems", which refers to all assumptions of the current
wenzelm@21447
  1155
context, including those from the target locale, proof body etc.
wenzelm@21447
  1156
wenzelm@19263
  1157
* Isar: 'print_statement' prints theorems from the current theory or
wenzelm@19263
  1158
proof context in long statement form, according to the syntax of a
wenzelm@19263
  1159
top-level lemma.
wenzelm@19263
  1160
wenzelm@18901
  1161
* Isar: 'obtain' takes an optional case name for the local context
wenzelm@18901
  1162
introduction rule (default "that").
wenzelm@18901
  1163
wenzelm@19587
  1164
* Isar: removed obsolete 'concl is' patterns.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use
wenzelm@19587
  1165
explicit (is "_ ==> ?foo") in the rare cases where this still happens
wenzelm@19587
  1166
to occur.
wenzelm@19587
  1167
wenzelm@19682
  1168
* Pure: syntax "CONST name" produces a fully internalized constant
wenzelm@19682
  1169
according to the current context.  This is particularly useful for
wenzelm@19682
  1170
syntax translations that should refer to internal constant
wenzelm@19682
  1171
representations independently of name spaces.
wenzelm@19682
  1172
wenzelm@21537
  1173
* Pure: syntax constant for foo (binder "FOO ") is called "foo_binder"
wenzelm@21537
  1174
instead of "FOO ". This allows multiple binder declarations to coexist
wenzelm@21537
  1175
in the same context.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@21537
  1176
wenzelm@21209
  1177
* Isar/locales: 'notation' provides a robust interface to the 'syntax'
wenzelm@21209
  1178
primitive that also works in a locale context (both for constants and
wenzelm@24950
  1179
fixed variables). Type declaration and internal syntactic representation
wenzelm@24950
  1180
of given constants retrieved from the context. Likewise, the
wenzelm@24950
  1181
'no_notation' command allows to remove given syntax annotations from the
wenzelm@24950
  1182
current context.
wenzelm@19682
  1183
wenzelm@19665
  1184
* Isar/locales: new derived specification elements 'axiomatization',
wenzelm@19665
  1185
'definition', 'abbreviation', which support type-inference, admit
wenzelm@19083
  1186
object-level specifications (equality, equivalence).  See also the
wenzelm@19083
  1187
isar-ref manual.  Examples:
wenzelm@19081
  1188
wenzelm@19665
  1189
  axiomatization
wenzelm@21595
  1190
    eq  (infix "===" 50) where
wenzelm@21595
  1191
    eq_refl: "x === x" and eq_subst: "x === y ==> P x ==> P y"
wenzelm@21595
  1192
wenzelm@21595
  1193
  definition "f x y = x + y + 1"
wenzelm@21595
  1194
  definition g where "g x = f x x"
wenzelm@19081
  1195
wenzelm@19363
  1196
  abbreviation
wenzelm@21595
  1197
    neq  (infix "=!=" 50) where
wenzelm@19363
  1198
    "x =!= y == ~ (x === y)"
wenzelm@19081
  1199
wenzelm@19083
  1200
These specifications may be also used in a locale context.  Then the
wenzelm@19083
  1201
constants being introduced depend on certain fixed parameters, and the
wenzelm@19083
  1202
constant name is qualified by the locale base name.  An internal
wenzelm@19083
  1203
abbreviation takes care for convenient input and output, making the
wenzelm@19088
  1204
parameters implicit and using the original short name.  See also
wenzelm@25177
  1205
src/HOL/ex/Abstract_NAT.thy for an example of deriving polymorphic
wenzelm@19083
  1206
entities from a monomorphic theory.
wenzelm@19083
  1207
wenzelm@19083
  1208
Presently, abbreviations are only available 'in' a target locale, but
wenzelm@19363
  1209
not inherited by general import expressions.  Also note that
wenzelm@19363
  1210
'abbreviation' may be used as a type-safe replacement for 'syntax' +
wenzelm@24735
  1211
'translations' in common applications.  The "no_abbrevs" print mode
wenzelm@24735
  1212
prevents folding of abbreviations in term output.
wenzelm@19084
  1213
wenzelm@19682
  1214
Concrete syntax is attached to specified constants in internal form,
wenzelm@19682
  1215
independently of name spaces.  The parse tree representation is
wenzelm@21209
  1216
slightly different -- use 'notation' instead of raw 'syntax', and
wenzelm@19682
  1217
'translations' with explicit "CONST" markup to accommodate this.
wenzelm@19665
  1218
wenzelm@24800
  1219
* Pure/Isar: unified syntax for new-style specification mechanisms
wenzelm@24800
  1220
(e.g.  'definition', 'abbreviation', or 'inductive' in HOL) admits
wenzelm@24800
  1221
full type inference and dummy patterns ("_").  For example:
wenzelm@24735
  1222
wenzelm@24735
  1223
  definition "K x _ = x"
wenzelm@24735
  1224
wenzelm@24738
  1225
  inductive conj for A B
wenzelm@24738
  1226
  where "A ==> B ==> conj A B"
wenzelm@24738
  1227
wenzelm@21735
  1228
* Pure: command 'print_abbrevs' prints all constant abbreviations of
wenzelm@21735
  1229
the current context.  Print mode "no_abbrevs" prevents inversion of
wenzelm@21735
  1230
abbreviations on output.
wenzelm@21735
  1231
wenzelm@24800
  1232
* Isar/locales: improved parameter handling: use of locales "var" and
wenzelm@24800
  1233
"struct" no longer necessary; - parameter renamings are no longer
wenzelm@24800
  1234
required to be injective.  For example, this allows to define
wenzelm@24800
  1235
endomorphisms as locale endom = homom mult mult h.
ballarin@19783
  1236
ballarin@19931
  1237
* Isar/locales: changed the way locales with predicates are defined.
ballarin@19931
  1238
Instead of accumulating the specification, the imported expression is
wenzelm@22126
  1239
now an interpretation.  INCOMPATIBILITY: different normal form of
wenzelm@22126
  1240
locale expressions.  In particular, in interpretations of locales with
wenzelm@22126
  1241
predicates, goals repesenting already interpreted fragments are not
wenzelm@22126
  1242
removed automatically.  Use methods `intro_locales' and
wenzelm@22126
  1243
`unfold_locales'; see below.
wenzelm@22126
  1244
wenzelm@22126
  1245
* Isar/locales: new methods `intro_locales' and `unfold_locales'
wenzelm@22126
  1246
provide backward reasoning on locales predicates.  The methods are
wenzelm@22126
  1247
aware of interpretations and discharge corresponding goals.
wenzelm@22126
  1248
`intro_locales' is less aggressive then `unfold_locales' and does not
wenzelm@22126
  1249
unfold predicates to assumptions.
ballarin@19931
  1250
ballarin@19931
  1251
* Isar/locales: the order in which locale fragments are accumulated
wenzelm@22126
  1252
has changed.  This enables to override declarations from fragments due
wenzelm@22126
  1253
to interpretations -- for example, unwanted simp rules.
ballarin@19931
  1254
ballarin@23920
  1255
* Isar/locales: interpretation in theories and proof contexts has been
ballarin@23920
  1256
extended.  One may now specify (and prove) equations, which are
ballarin@23920
  1257
unfolded in interpreted theorems.  This is useful for replacing
ballarin@23920
  1258
defined concepts (constants depending on locale parameters) by
ballarin@23920
  1259
concepts already existing in the target context.  Example:
ballarin@23920
  1260
ballarin@23920
  1261
  interpretation partial_order ["op <= :: [int, int] => bool"]
ballarin@23920
  1262
    where "partial_order.less (op <=) (x::int) y = (x < y)"
ballarin@23920
  1263
wenzelm@24800
  1264
Typically, the constant `partial_order.less' is created by a
wenzelm@24800
  1265
definition specification element in the context of locale
wenzelm@24800
  1266
partial_order.
wenzelm@24800
  1267
wenzelm@24859
  1268
* Method "induct": improved internal context management to support
wenzelm@24800
  1269
local fixes and defines on-the-fly. Thus explicit meta-level
wenzelm@24800
  1270
connectives !!  and ==> are rarely required anymore in inductive goals
wenzelm@24800
  1271
(using object-logic connectives for this purpose has been long
wenzelm@24800
  1272
obsolete anyway). Common proof patterns are explained in
wenzelm@25177
  1273
src/HOL/Induct/Common_Patterns.thy, see also
wenzelm@25177
  1274
src/HOL/Isar_examples/Puzzle.thy and src/HOL/Lambda for realistic
wenzelm@25177
  1275
examples.
wenzelm@24606
  1276
wenzelm@24859
  1277
* Method "induct": improved handling of simultaneous goals. Instead of
wenzelm@24606
  1278
introducing object-level conjunction, the statement is now split into
wenzelm@24606
  1279
several conclusions, while the corresponding symbolic cases are nested
wenzelm@24606
  1280
accordingly. INCOMPATIBILITY, proofs need to be structured explicitly,
wenzelm@25177
  1281
see src/HOL/Induct/Common_Patterns.thy, for example.
wenzelm@24606
  1282
wenzelm@24859
  1283
* Method "induct": mutual induction rules are now specified as a list
wenzelm@24800
  1284
of rule sharing the same induction cases. HOL packages usually provide
wenzelm@24606
  1285
foo_bar.inducts for mutually defined items foo and bar (e.g. inductive
wenzelm@24859
  1286
predicates/sets or datatypes). INCOMPATIBILITY, users need to specify
wenzelm@24859
  1287
mutual induction rules differently, i.e. like this:
wenzelm@18506
  1288
wenzelm@18506
  1289
  (induct rule: foo_bar.inducts)
wenzelm@18506
  1290
  (induct set: foo bar)
wenzelm@24859
  1291
  (induct pred: foo bar)
wenzelm@18506
  1292
  (induct type: foo bar)
wenzelm@18506
  1293
wenzelm@18506
  1294
The ML function ProjectRule.projections turns old-style rules into the
wenzelm@18506
  1295
new format.
wenzelm@18506
  1296
wenzelm@24859
  1297
* Method "coinduct": dual of induction, see
wenzelm@18399
  1298
src/HOL/Library/Coinductive_List.thy for various examples.
wenzelm@18399
  1299
wenzelm@24859
  1300
* Method "cases", "induct", "coinduct": the ``(open)'' option is
wenzelm@24859
  1301
considered a legacy feature.
wenzelm@24859
  1302
wenzelm@20919
  1303
* Attribute "symmetric" produces result with standardized schematic
wenzelm@20919
  1304
variables (index 0).  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@20919
  1305
wenzelm@22126
  1306
* Simplifier: by default the simplifier trace only shows top level
wenzelm@22126
  1307
rewrites now. That is, trace_simp_depth_limit is set to 1 by
wenzelm@22126
  1308
default. Thus there is less danger of being flooded by the trace. The
wenzelm@22126
  1309
trace indicates where parts have been suppressed.
nipkow@18674
  1310
  
wenzelm@18536
  1311
* Provers/classical: removed obsolete classical version of elim_format
wenzelm@18536
  1312
attribute; classical elim/dest rules are now treated uniformly when
wenzelm@18536
  1313
manipulating the claset.
wenzelm@18536
  1314
wenzelm@18694
  1315
* Provers/classical: stricter checks to ensure that supplied intro,
wenzelm@18694
  1316
dest and elim rules are well-formed; dest and elim rules must have at
wenzelm@18694
  1317
least one premise.
wenzelm@18694
  1318
wenzelm@18694
  1319
* Provers/classical: attributes dest/elim/intro take an optional
wenzelm@18695
  1320
weight argument for the rule (just as the Pure versions).  Weights are
wenzelm@18696
  1321
ignored by automated tools, but determine the search order of single
wenzelm@18694
  1322
rule steps.
paulson@18557
  1323
wenzelm@18536
  1324
* Syntax: input syntax now supports dummy variable binding "%_. b",
wenzelm@18536
  1325
where the body does not mention the bound variable.  Note that dummy
wenzelm@18536
  1326
patterns implicitly depend on their context of bounds, which makes
wenzelm@18536
  1327
"{_. _}" match any set comprehension as expected.  Potential
wenzelm@18536
  1328
INCOMPATIBILITY -- parse translations need to cope with syntactic
wenzelm@18536
  1329
constant "_idtdummy" in the binding position.
wenzelm@18536
  1330
wenzelm@18536
  1331
* Syntax: removed obsolete syntactic constant "_K" and its associated
wenzelm@18536
  1332
parse translation.  INCOMPATIBILITY -- use dummy abstraction instead,
wenzelm@18536
  1333
for example "A -> B" => "Pi A (%_. B)".
wenzelm@17779
  1334
wenzelm@20582
  1335
* Pure: 'class_deps' command visualizes the subclass relation, using
wenzelm@20582
  1336
the graph browser tool.
wenzelm@20582
  1337
wenzelm@24800

* Command 'sledgehammer' invokes external automatic theorem provers as
wenzelm@25129
  1351
background processes.  It generates calls to the "metis" method if

haftmann@25184
  1363
haftmann@25184

  1391
INCOMPATIBILITY.  Adaptions may be required in the following cases:
haftmann@25184
  1392
haftmann@25184
  1393
a) User-defined constants using any of the names "plus", "minus",
haftmann@25184
  1394
"times", "less" or "less_eq". The standard syntax translations for
haftmann@25184
  1395
"+", "-" and "*" may go wrong.  INCOMPATIBILITY: use more specific
haftmann@25184
  1396
names.
haftmann@25184
  1397
haftmann@25184
  1398
b) Variables named "plus", "minus", "times", "less", "less_eq"
haftmann@25184
  1399
INCOMPATIBILITY: use more specific names.
haftmann@25184
  1400
haftmann@25184
  1401
c) Permutative equations (e.g. "a + b = b + a")
haftmann@25184
  1402
Since the change of names also changes the order of terms, permutative
haftmann@25184
  1403
rewrite rules may get applied in a different order. Experience shows
haftmann@25184
  1404
that this is rarely the case (only two adaptions in the whole Isabelle
haftmann@25184
  1405
distribution).  INCOMPATIBILITY: rewrite proofs
haftmann@25184
  1406
haftmann@25184
  1407
d) ML code directly refering to constant names
haftmann@25184
  1408
This in general only affects hand-written proof tactics, simprocs and
haftmann@25184
  1409
so on.  INCOMPATIBILITY: grep your sourcecode and replace names.
haftmann@25184
  1410
Consider using @{const_name} antiquotation.
haftmann@25184
  1411
haftmann@25184
  1412
* New class "default" with associated constant "default".
haftmann@25184
  1413
haftmann@25184
  1414
* Function "sgn" is now overloaded and available on int, real, complex
haftmann@25184
  1415
(and other numeric types), using class "sgn".  Two possible defs of
haftmann@25184
  1416
sgn are given as equational assumptions in the classes sgn_if and
haftmann@25184
  1417
sgn_div_norm; ordered_idom now also inherits from sgn_if.
haftmann@25184
  1418
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
  1419
haftmann@25184
  1420
* Locale "partial_order" now unified with class "order" (cf. theory
haftmann@25184
  1421
Orderings), added parameter "less".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
  1422
haftmann@25184
  1423
* Renamings in classes "order" and "linorder": facts "refl", "trans" and
haftmann@25184
  1424
"cases" to "order_refl", "order_trans" and "linorder_cases", to avoid
haftmann@25184
  1425
clashes with HOL "refl" and "trans".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
  1426
haftmann@25184
  1427
* Classes "order" and "linorder": potential INCOMPATIBILITY due to
haftmann@25184
  1428
changed order of proof goals in instance proofs.
haftmann@25184
  1429
haftmann@25184
  1430
* The transitivity reasoner for partial and linear orders is set up
haftmann@25184
  1431
for classes "order" and "linorder".  Instances of the reasoner are available
haftmann@25184
  1432
in all contexts importing or interpreting the corresponding locales.
haftmann@25184
  1433
Method "order" invokes the reasoner separately; the reasoner
haftmann@25184
  1434
is also integrated with the Simplifier as a solver.  Diagnostic
haftmann@25184
  1435
command 'print_orders' shows the available instances of the reasoner
haftmann@25184
  1436
in the current context.
haftmann@25184
  1437
haftmann@25184
  1438
* Localized monotonicity predicate in theory "Orderings"; integrated
haftmann@25184
  1439
lemmas max_of_mono and min_of_mono with this predicate.
haftmann@25184
  1440
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
  1441
haftmann@25184
  1442
* Formulation of theorem "dense" changed slightly due to integration
haftmann@25184
  1443
with new class dense_linear_order.
haftmann@25184
  1444
haftmann@25184
  1445
* Uniform lattice theory development in HOL.
haftmann@25184
  1446
haftmann@25184
  1447
    constants "meet" and "join" now named "inf" and "sup"
haftmann@25184
  1448
    constant "Meet" now named "Inf"
haftmann@25184
  1449
haftmann@25184
  1450
    classes "meet_semilorder" and "join_semilorder" now named
haftmann@25184
  1451
      "lower_semilattice" and "upper_semilattice"
haftmann@25184
  1452
    class "lorder" now named "lattice"
haftmann@25184
  1453
    class "comp_lat" now named "complete_lattice"
haftmann@25184
  1454
haftmann@25184
  1455
    Instantiation of lattice classes allows explicit definitions
haftmann@25184
  1456
    for "inf" and "sup" operations (or "Inf" and "Sup" for complete lattices).
haftmann@25184

  1561
* Added syntactic class "size"; overloaded constant "size" now has
haftmann@25184
  1562
type "'a::size ==> bool"
haftmann@25184
  1563
wenzelm@24800
  1564
* Internal reorganisation of `size' of datatypes: size theorems
wenzelm@24800
  1565
"foo.size" are no longer subsumed by "foo.simps" (but are still
wenzelm@24800
  1566
simplification rules by default!); theorems "prod.size" now named
haftmann@25184
  1567
"*.size".
haftmann@25184
  1568
haftmann@25184
  1569
* Class "div" now inherits from class "times" rather than "type".

  1570
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  1571
wenzelm@24800
  1572
* HOL/Finite_Set: "name-space" locales Lattice, Distrib_lattice,
wenzelm@24800
  1573
Linorder etc.  have disappeared; operations defined in terms of
wenzelm@24800
  1574
fold_set now are named Inf_fin, Sup_fin.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  1575
wenzelm@25129

wenzelm@24800
  1578
* HOL-Word: New extensive library and type for generic, fixed size
wenzelm@24800
  1579
machine words, with arithemtic, bit-wise, shifting and rotating
wenzelm@24800
  1580
operations, reflection into int, nat, and bool lists, automation for
wenzelm@24800
  1581
linear arithmetic (by automatic reflection into nat or int), including
wenzelm@24800
  1582
lemmas on overflow and monotonicity.  Instantiated to all appropriate
wenzelm@24800
  1583
arithmetic type classes, supporting automatic simplification of
wenzelm@24800
  1584
numerals on all operations.

* Library/Numeral_Type: numbers as types, e.g. TYPE(32).
kleing@24333
  1589
haftmann@23850
  1590
* Code generator library theories:
haftmann@24993
  1591
  - Code_Integer represents HOL integers by big integer literals in target
haftmann@23850
  1592
    languages.
haftmann@24993
  1593
  - Code_Char represents HOL characters by character literals in target
haftmann@23850
  1594
    languages.
haftmann@24993
  1595
  - Code_Char_chr like Code_Char, but also offers treatment of character
haftmann@24993
  1596
    codes; includes Code_Integer.
wenzelm@24800
  1597
  - Executable_Set allows to generate code for finite sets using lists.
wenzelm@24800
  1598
  - Executable_Rat implements rational numbers as triples (sign, enumerator,
haftmann@23850
  1599
    denominator).
wenzelm@24800
  1600
  - Executable_Real implements a subset of real numbers, namly those
haftmann@23850
  1601
    representable by rational numbers.
wenzelm@24800
  1602
  - Efficient_Nat implements natural numbers by integers, which in general will
haftmann@23850
  1603
    result in higher efficency; pattern matching with 0/Suc is eliminated;
haftmann@24993
  1604
    includes Code_Integer.
haftmann@24993
  1605
  - Code_Index provides an additional datatype index which is mapped to
haftmann@24993
  1606
    target-language built-in integers.
haftmann@26355
  1607
  - Code_Message provides an additional datatype message_string which is isomorphic to
haftmann@24993
  1608
    strings; messages are mapped to target-language strings.

* New package for inductive predicates
berghofe@23783
  1611
berghofe@23783
  1612
  An n-ary predicate p with m parameters z_1, ..., z_m can now be defined via
berghofe@23783
  1613
berghofe@23783
  1614
    inductive

berghofe@23783
  1632

  For backward compatibility, there is a wrapper allowing inductive

berghofe@23783
  1658
berghofe@23783
  1659
  INCOMPATIBILITIES:
berghofe@23783
  1660
berghofe@23783
  1661
  - Since declaration and definition of inductive sets or predicates
wenzelm@24800
  1662
    is no longer separated, abbreviations involving the newly
wenzelm@24800
  1663
    introduced sets or predicates must be specified together with the
wenzelm@24800
  1664
    introduction rules after the 'where' keyword (see above), rather
wenzelm@24800
  1665
    than before the actual inductive definition.
wenzelm@24800
  1666
wenzelm@24800
  1667
  - The variables in induction and elimination rules are now
wenzelm@24800
  1668
    quantified in the order of their occurrence in the introduction
wenzelm@24800
  1669
    rules, rather than in alphabetical order. Since this may break
wenzelm@24800
  1670
    some proofs, these proofs either have to be repaired, e.g. by
wenzelm@24800
  1671
    reordering the variables a_i_1 ... a_i_{k_i} in Isar 'case'
wenzelm@24800
  1672
    statements of the form
berghofe@23783
  1673
berghofe@23783
  1674
      case (rule_i a_i_1 ... a_i_{k_i})
berghofe@23783
  1675
berghofe@23783
  1676
    or the old order of quantification has to be restored by explicitly adding
berghofe@23783
  1677
    meta-level quantifiers in the introduction rules, i.e.
berghofe@23783
  1678
berghofe@23783
  1679
      | rule_i: "!!a_i_1 ... a_i_{k_i}. ... ==> p z_1 ... z_m t_i_1 ... t_i_n"
berghofe@23783
  1680
berghofe@23783
  1681
  - The format of the elimination rules is now
berghofe@23783
  1682
berghofe@23783
  1683
      p z_1 ... z_m x_1 ... x_n ==>
berghofe@23783

        (!!a_1_1 ... a_1_{k_1}. x_1 = t_1_1 ==> ... ==> x_n = t_1_n ==> ... ==> P)
berghofe@23783
  1685
        ==> ... ==> P
berghofe@23783
  1686
berghofe@23783
  1687
    for predicates and
berghofe@23783
  1688
berghofe@23783
  1689
      (x_1, ..., x_n) : s z_1 ... z_m ==>
berghofe@23783
  1690
        (!!a_1_1 ... a_1_{k_1}. x_1 = t_1_1 ==> ... ==> x_n = t_1_n ==> ... ==> P)

        ==> ... ==> P
berghofe@23783

berghofe@23783
  1694
berghofe@23783
  1695
      x : s z_1 ... z_m ==>
berghofe@23783
  1696
        (!!a_1_1 ... a_1_{k_1}. x = (t_1_1, ..., t_1_n) ==> ... ==> P)

        ==> ... ==> P
berghofe@23783
  1698
wenzelm@24800
  1699
    This may require terms in goals to be expanded to n-tuples
wenzelm@24800
  1700
    (e.g. using case_tac or simplification with the split_paired_all
wenzelm@24800
  1701
    rule) before the above elimination rule is applicable.
wenzelm@24800
  1702
wenzelm@24800
  1703
  - The elimination or case analysis rules for (mutually) inductive
wenzelm@24800
  1704
    sets or predicates are now called "p_1.cases" ... "p_k.cases". The
wenzelm@24800
  1705
    list of rules "p_1_..._p_k.elims" is no longer available.
berghofe@23783
  1706
krauss@25198
  1707
* New package "function"/"fun" for general recursive functions,
krauss@25198
  1708
supporting mutual and nested recursion, definitions in local contexts,
krauss@25198
  1709
more general pattern matching and partiality. See HOL/ex/Fundefs.thy
krauss@25198
  1710
for small examples, and the separate tutorial on the function
krauss@25198
  1711
package. The old recdef "package" is still available as before, but
krauss@25198
  1712
users are encouraged to use the new package.
krauss@25198
  1713
krauss@25198
  1714
* Method "lexicographic_order" automatically synthesizes termination
krauss@25198
  1715
relations as lexicographic combinations of size measures. 
krauss@25198
  1716
wenzelm@24800
  1717
* Case-expressions allow arbitrary constructor-patterns (including
wenzelm@24800
  1718
"_") and take their order into account, like in functional
wenzelm@24800
  1719
programming.  Internally, this is translated into nested
wenzelm@24800
  1720
case-expressions; missing cases are added and mapped to the predefined
wenzelm@24800
  1721
constant "undefined". In complicated cases printing may no longer show
wenzelm@24800
  1722
the original input but the internal form. Lambda-abstractions allow
wenzelm@24800
  1723
the same form of pattern matching: "% pat1 => e1 | ..." is an
wenzelm@24800
  1724
abbreviation for "%x. case x of pat1 => e1 | ..." where x is a new
wenzelm@24800
  1725
variable.
nipkow@23564
  1726
huffman@23468
  1727
* IntDef: The constant "int :: nat => int" has been removed; now "int"
wenzelm@24800
  1728
is an abbreviation for "of_nat :: nat => int". The simplification
wenzelm@24800
  1729
rules for "of_nat" have been changed to work like "int" did
wenzelm@24800
  1730
previously.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY:
huffman@23468
  1731
  - "of_nat (Suc m)" simplifies to "1 + of_nat m" instead of "of_nat m + 1"
huffman@23468
  1732
  - of_nat_diff and of_nat_mult are no longer default simp rules
huffman@23377
  1733
chaieb@23295
  1734
* Method "algebra" solves polynomial equations over (semi)rings using
wenzelm@24800
  1735
Groebner bases. The (semi)ring structure is defined by locales and the
wenzelm@24800
  1736
tool setup depends on that generic context. Installing the method for
wenzelm@24800
  1737
a specific type involves instantiating the locale and possibly adding
wenzelm@24800
  1738
declarations for computation on the coefficients.  The method is
wenzelm@24800
  1739
already instantiated for natural numbers and for the axiomatic class
wenzelm@24800
  1740
of idoms with numerals.  See also the paper by Chaieb and Wenzel at
wenzelm@24800
  1741
CALCULEMUS 2007 for the general principles underlying this
wenzelm@24800
  1742
architecture of context-aware proof-tools.
wenzelm@24800
  1743
wenzelm@25033
  1744
* Method "ferrack" implements quantifier elimination over
wenzelm@25033
  1745
special-purpose dense linear orders using locales (analogous to
wenzelm@25033
  1746
"algebra"). The method is already installed for class
wenzelm@25033
  1747
{ordered_field,recpower,number_ring} which subsumes real, hyperreal,
wenzelm@25033
  1748
rat, etc.
wenzelm@25033
  1749
wenzelm@24800
  1750
* Former constant "List.op @" now named "List.append".  Use ML
wenzelm@24800
  1751
antiquotations @{const_name List.append} or @{term " ... @ ... "} to
wenzelm@24800
  1752
circumvent possible incompatibilities when working on ML level.
wenzelm@24800
  1753
haftmann@24996
  1754
* primrec: missing cases mapped to "undefined" instead of "arbitrary".
haftmann@22845
  1755
wenzelm@24800
  1756
* New function listsum :: 'a list => 'a for arbitrary monoids.
wenzelm@24800
  1757
Special syntax: "SUM x <- xs. f x" (and latex variants)
wenzelm@24800
  1758
wenzelm@24800
  1759
* New syntax for Haskell-like list comprehension (input only), eg.
wenzelm@25177
  1760
[(x,y). x <- xs, y <- ys, x ~= y], see also src/HOL/List.thy.
wenzelm@24800
  1761
wenzelm@24800
  1762
* The special syntax for function "filter" has changed from [x :
wenzelm@24800
  1763
xs. P] to [x <- xs. P] to avoid an ambiguity caused by list
wenzelm@24800
  1764
comprehension syntax, and for uniformity.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  1765
wenzelm@24800
  1766
* [a..b] is now defined for arbitrary linear orders.  It used to be
wenzelm@24800
  1767
defined on nat only, as an abbreviation for [a..<Suc b]
wenzelm@24800
  1768
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  1769
wenzelm@24800
  1770
* Renamed lemma "set_take_whileD"  to "set_takeWhileD".
wenzelm@24800
  1771
wenzelm@25177
  1772
* New functions "sorted" and "sort" in src/HOL/List.thy.
wenzelm@24800
  1773
wenzelm@24800
  1774
* New lemma collection field_simps (an extension of ring_simps) for
wenzelm@24800
  1775
manipulating (in)equations involving division. Multiplies with all
wenzelm@24800
  1776
denominators that can be proved to be non-zero (in equations) or
wenzelm@24800
  1777
positive/negative (in inequations).
nipkow@23480
  1778
nipkow@23480
  1779
* Lemma collections ring_eq_simps, group_eq_simps and ring_distrib
wenzelm@24800
  1780
have been improved and renamed to ring_simps, group_simps and
wenzelm@24800
  1781
ring_distribs.  Removed lemmas field_xyz in theory Ring_and_Field
wenzelm@24800
  1782
because they were subsumed by lemmas xyz.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  1783
wenzelm@25177
  1784
* Theory Library/Commutative_Ring: switched from recdef to function
wenzelm@24800
  1785
package; constants add, mul, pow now curried.  Infix syntax for
wenzelm@24800
  1786
algebraic operations.
haftmann@22735
  1787
wenzelm@24800
  1788
* Dropped redundant lemma def_imp_eq in favor of meta_eq_to_obj_eq.
haftmann@22218
  1789
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@22218
  1790
wenzelm@24800
  1791
* Dropped redundant lemma if_def2 in favor of if_bool_eq_conj.
haftmann@22218
  1792
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@22218
  1793
wenzelm@22126
  1794
* HOL/records: generalised field-update to take a function on the
wenzelm@22126
  1795
field rather than the new value: r(|A := x|) is translated to A_update
wenzelm@22126
  1796
(K x) r The K-combinator that is internally used is called K_record.
schirmer@21226
  1797
INCOMPATIBILITY: Usage of the plain update functions has to be
schirmer@21226
  1798
adapted.
schirmer@21226
  1799
 
wenzelm@24800
  1800
* Class "semiring_0" now contains annihilation axioms x * 0 = 0 and 0
wenzelm@24800
  1801
* x = 0, which are required for a semiring.  Richer structures do not
wenzelm@24800
  1802
inherit from semiring_0 anymore, because this property is a theorem
wenzelm@24800
  1803
there, not an axiom.  INCOMPATIBILITY: In instances of semiring_0,
wenzelm@24800
  1804
there is more to prove, but this is mostly trivial.
wenzelm@24800
  1805
wenzelm@24800
  1806
* Class "recpower" is generalized to arbitrary monoids, not just
wenzelm@24800
  1807
commutative semirings.  INCOMPATIBILITY: may need to incorporate
haftmann@25163
  1808
commutativity or semiring properties additionally.
haftmann@21215
  1809
haftmann@21099
  1810
* Constant "List.list_all2" in List.thy now uses authentic syntax.
wenzelm@24800
  1811
INCOMPATIBILITY: translations containing list_all2 may go wrong,
wenzelm@24800
  1812
better use 'abbreviation'.
wenzelm@24800
  1813
wenzelm@24800

wenzelm@22126
  1816
* Numeral syntax: type 'bin' which was a mere type copy of 'int' has
wenzelm@24800
  1817
been abandoned in favour of plain 'int'.  INCOMPATIBILITY --
wenzelm@22126
  1818
significant changes for setting up numeral syntax for types:
wenzelm@24800
  1819
  - New constants Numeral.pred and Numeral.succ instead
haftmann@20485
  1820
      of former Numeral.bin_pred and Numeral.bin_succ.
haftmann@20485
  1821
  - Use integer operations instead of bin_add, bin_mult and so on.
haftmann@20485
  1822
  - Numeral simplification theorems named Numeral.numeral_simps instead of Bin_simps.
haftmann@20485
  1823
  - ML structure Bin_Simprocs now named Int_Numeral_Base_Simprocs.

See src/HOL/Integ/IntArith.thy for an example setup.
wenzelm@25177
  1826
wenzelm@25177
  1827
* Command 'normal_form' computes the normal form of a term that may
wenzelm@25177
  1828
contain free variables.  For example ``normal_form "rev [a, b, c]"''
wenzelm@25177
  1829
produces ``[b, c, a]'' (without proof).  This command is suitable for
wenzelm@25177
  1830
heavy-duty computations because the functions are compiled to ML
wenzelm@25177
  1831
first.  Correspondingly, a method "normalization" is provided.  See
wenzelm@25177
  1832
further src/HOL/ex/NormalForm.thy and src/Tools/nbe.ML.
nipkow@19895
  1833
wenzelm@17996
  1834
* Alternative iff syntax "A <-> B" for equality on bool (with priority
wenzelm@17996
  1835
25 like -->); output depends on the "iff" print_mode, the default is
wenzelm@17996
  1836
"A = B" (with priority 50).
wenzelm@17996
  1837
wenzelm@21265
  1838
* Relations less (<) and less_eq (<=) are also available on type bool.
wenzelm@21265
  1839
Modified syntax to disallow nesting without explicit parentheses,
wenzelm@24800
  1840
e.g. "(x < y) < z" or "x < (y < z)", but NOT "x < y < z".  Potential
wenzelm@24800
  1841
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@21265
  1842
nipkow@18674
  1843
* "LEAST x:A. P" expands to "LEAST x. x:A & P" (input only).
nipkow@18674
  1844
krauss@20716
  1845
* Relation composition operator "op O" now has precedence 75 and binds
krauss@20716
  1846
stronger than union and intersection. INCOMPATIBILITY.
krauss@20716
  1847
wenzelm@22126
  1848
* The old set interval syntax "{m..n(}" (and relatives) has been
wenzelm@22126
  1849
removed.  Use "{m..<n}" (and relatives) instead.
nipkow@19377
  1850
wenzelm@17865
  1851
* In the context of the assumption "~(s = t)" the Simplifier rewrites
wenzelm@24800
  1852
"t = s" to False (by simproc "neq").  INCOMPATIBILITY, consider using
wenzelm@24800
  1853
``declare [[simproc del: neq]]''.
wenzelm@24800
  1854
wenzelm@24800
  1855
* Simplifier: "m dvd n" where m and n are numbers is evaluated to
wenzelm@24800
  1856
True/False.
wenzelm@24800
  1857
wenzelm@24800
  1858
* Theorem Cons_eq_map_conv no longer declared as "simp".
nipkow@19211
  1859
ballarin@19279
  1860
* Theorem setsum_mult renamed to setsum_right_distrib.
ballarin@19279
  1861
nipkow@19211
  1862
* Prefer ex1I over ex_ex1I in single-step reasoning, e.g. by the
wenzelm@22126
  1863
``rule'' method.
wenzelm@22126
  1864
wenzelm@24800
  1865
* Reimplemented methods "sat" and "satx", with several improvements:
wenzelm@24800
  1866
goals no longer need to be stated as "<prems> ==> False", equivalences
wenzelm@24800
  1867
(i.e. "=" on type bool) are handled, variable names of the form
wenzelm@24800
  1868
"lit_<n>" are no longer reserved, significant speedup.
wenzelm@24800
  1869
wenzelm@24800
  1870
* Methods "sat" and "satx" can now replay MiniSat proof traces.
wenzelm@22126
  1871
zChaff is still supported as well.
wenzelm@22126
  1872
wenzelm@22126
  1873
* 'inductive' and 'datatype': provide projections of mutual rules,
wenzelm@22126
  1874
bundled as foo_bar.inducts;
wenzelm@22126
  1875
wenzelm@22126
  1876
* Library: moved theories Parity, GCD, Binomial, Infinite_Set to
wenzelm@22126
  1877
Library.
wenzelm@21256
  1878
wenzelm@21256
  1879
* Library: moved theory Accessible_Part to main HOL.
wenzelm@19572
  1880
wenzelm@18446
  1881
* Library: added theory Coinductive_List of potentially infinite lists
wenzelm@18446
  1882
as greatest fixed-point.
wenzelm@18399
  1883
wenzelm@19254
  1884
* Library: added theory AssocList which implements (finite) maps as
schirmer@19252
  1885
association lists.
webertj@17809
  1886
wenzelm@24800
  1887
* Method "evaluation" solves goals (i.e. a boolean expression)
wenzelm@24800
  1888
efficiently by compiling it to ML.  The goal is "proved" (via an
wenzelm@24800
  1889
oracle) if it evaluates to True.
wenzelm@20807
  1890
wenzelm@20807
  1891
* Linear arithmetic now splits certain operators (e.g. min, max, abs)
wenzelm@24800
  1892
also when invoked by the simplifier.  This results in the Simplifier
wenzelm@24800
  1893
being more powerful on arithmetic goals.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  1894
Configuration option fast_arith_split_limit=0 recovers the old
wenzelm@24800
  1895
behavior.
webertj@20217
  1896
wenzelm@22126
  1897
* Support for hex (0x20) and binary (0b1001) numerals.
wenzelm@19254
  1898
wenzelm@20807
  1899
* New method: reify eqs (t), where eqs are equations for an
wenzelm@20807
  1900
interpretation I :: 'a list => 'b => 'c and t::'c is an optional
wenzelm@20807
  1901
parameter, computes a term s::'b and a list xs::'a list and proves the
wenzelm@20807
  1902
theorem I xs s = t. This is also known as reification or quoting. The
wenzelm@20807
  1903
resulting theorem is applied to the subgoal to substitute t with I xs
wenzelm@20807
  1904
s.  If t is omitted, the subgoal itself is reified.
wenzelm@20807
  1905
wenzelm@20807
  1906
* New method: reflection corr_thm eqs (t). The parameters eqs and (t)
wenzelm@20807
  1907
are as explained above. corr_thm is a theorem for I vs (f t) = I vs t,
wenzelm@20807
  1908
where f is supposed to be a computable function (in the sense of code
wenzelm@20807
  1909
generattion). The method uses reify to compute s and xs as above then
wenzelm@20807
  1910
applies corr_thm and uses normalization by evaluation to "prove" f s =
wenzelm@20807
  1911
r and finally gets the theorem t = r, which is again applied to the
wenzelm@25177
  1912
subgoal. An Example is available in src/HOL/ex/ReflectionEx.thy.
wenzelm@25177
  1913
wenzelm@25177
  1914
* Reflection: Automatic reification now handels binding, an example is
wenzelm@25177
  1915
available in src/HOL/ex/ReflectionEx.thy
wenzelm@20807
  1916
wenzelm@25397
  1917
* HOL-Statespace: ``State Spaces: The Locale Way'' introduces a
schirmer@25409
  1918
command 'statespace' that is similar to 'record', but introduces an
wenzelm@25397
  1919
abstract specification based on the locale infrastructure instead of
wenzelm@25397
  1920
HOL types.  This leads to extra flexibility in composing state spaces,
wenzelm@25397
  1921
in particular multiple inheritance and renaming of components.

huffman@22971
  1927
inputs so that root n (- x) = - root n x and sqrt (- x) = - sqrt x.
huffman@22971
  1928
Nonnegativity side conditions have been removed from many lemmas, so

notably AxClass.define_class supercedes AxClass.add_axclass, and
wenzelm@24706
  2075
AxClass.axiomatize_class/classrel/arity supersede
wenzelm@19508
  2076
Sign.add_classes/classrel/arities.
wenzelm@19508
  2077
wenzelm@19006
  2078
* Pure/Isar: Args/Attrib parsers operate on Context.generic --
wenzelm@19006
  2079
global/local versions on theory vs. Proof.context have been
wenzelm@19006
  2080
discontinued; Attrib.syntax and Method.syntax have been adapted
wenzelm@19006
  2081
accordingly.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt parser expressions for
wenzelm@19006
  2082
attributes, methods, etc.
wenzelm@18642
  2083
wenzelm@18446
  2084
* Pure: several functions of signature "... -> theory -> theory * ..."
wenzelm@18446
  2085
have been reoriented to "... -> theory -> ... * theory" in order to
wenzelm@18446
  2086
allow natural usage in combination with the ||>, ||>>, |-> and
wenzelm@18446
  2087
fold_map combinators.
haftmann@18051
  2088
wenzelm@21647
  2089
* Pure: official theorem names (closed derivations) and additional
wenzelm@21647
  2090
comments (tags) are now strictly separate.  Name hints -- which are
wenzelm@21647
  2091
maintained as tags -- may be attached any time without affecting the
wenzelm@21647
  2092
derivation.
wenzelm@21647
  2093
wenzelm@18020
  2094
* Pure: primitive rule lift_rule now takes goal cterm instead of an
wenzelm@18145
  2095
actual goal state (thm).  Use Thm.lift_rule (Thm.cprem_of st i) to
wenzelm@18020
  2096
achieve the old behaviour.
wenzelm@18020
  2097
wenzelm@18020
  2098
* Pure: the "Goal" constant is now called "prop", supporting a
wenzelm@18020
  2099
slightly more general idea of ``protecting'' meta-level rule
wenzelm@18020
  2100
statements.
wenzelm@18020
  2101
wenzelm@20040
  2102
* Pure: Logic.(un)varify only works in a global context, which is now
wenzelm@20040
  2103
enforced instead of silently assumed.  INCOMPATIBILITY, may use
wenzelm@20040
  2104
Logic.legacy_(un)varify as temporary workaround.
wenzelm@20040
  2105
wenzelm@20090
  2106
* Pure: structure Name provides scalable operations for generating
wenzelm@20090
  2107
internal variable names, notably Name.variants etc.  This replaces
wenzelm@20090
  2108
some popular functions from term.ML:
wenzelm@20090
  2109
wenzelm@20090
  2110
  Term.variant		->  Name.variant
wenzelm@24800
  2111
  Term.variantlist	->  Name.variant_list
wenzelm@20090
  2112
  Term.invent_names	->  Name.invent_list
wenzelm@20090
  2113
wenzelm@20090
  2114
Note that low-level renaming rarely occurs in new code -- operations
wenzelm@20090
  2115
from structure Variable are used instead (see below).
wenzelm@20090
  2116
wenzelm@20040
  2117
* Pure: structure Variable provides fundamental operations for proper
wenzelm@20040
  2118
treatment of fixed/schematic variables in a context.  For example,
wenzelm@20040
  2119
Variable.import introduces fixes for schematics of given facts and
wenzelm@20040
  2120
Variable.export reverses the effect (up to renaming) -- this replaces
wenzelm@20040
  2121
various freeze_thaw operations.
wenzelm@20040
  2122
wenzelm@18567
  2123
* Pure: structure Goal provides simple interfaces for
wenzelm@17981
  2124
init/conclude/finish and tactical prove operations (replacing former
wenzelm@20040
  2125
Tactic.prove).  Goal.prove is the canonical way to prove results
wenzelm@20040
  2126
within a given context; Goal.prove_global is a degraded version for
wenzelm@20040
  2127
theory level goals, including a global Drule.standard.  Note that
wenzelm@20040
  2128
OldGoals.prove_goalw_cterm has long been obsolete, since it is
wenzelm@20040
  2129
ill-behaved in a local proof context (e.g. with local fixes/assumes or
wenzelm@20040
  2130
in a locale context).
wenzelm@17981
  2131
wenzelm@24706
  2132
* Pure/Syntax: generic interfaces for parsing (Syntax.parse_term etc.)
wenzelm@24706
  2133
and type checking (Syntax.check_term etc.), with common combinations
wenzelm@24706
  2134
(Syntax.read_term etc.). These supersede former Sign.read_term etc.
wenzelm@24706
  2135
which are considered legacy and await removal.
wenzelm@24706
  2136
wenzelm@24920
  2137
* Pure/Syntax: generic interfaces for type unchecking
wenzelm@24920
  2138
(Syntax.uncheck_terms etc.) and unparsing (Syntax.unparse_term etc.),
wenzelm@24920
  2139
with common combinations (Syntax.pretty_term, Syntax.string_of_term
wenzelm@24920
  2140
etc.).  Former Sign.pretty_term, Sign.string_of_term etc. are still
wenzelm@24924
  2141
available for convenience, but refer to the very same operations using
wenzelm@24924
  2142
a mere theory instead of a full context.
wenzelm@24920
  2143
wenzelm@18815
  2144
* Isar: simplified treatment of user-level errors, using exception
wenzelm@18687
  2145
ERROR of string uniformly.  Function error now merely raises ERROR,
wenzelm@18686
  2146
without any side effect on output channels.  The Isar toplevel takes
wenzelm@18686
  2147
care of proper display of ERROR exceptions.  ML code may use plain
wenzelm@18686
  2148
handle/can/try; cat_error may be used to concatenate errors like this:
wenzelm@18686
  2149
wenzelm@18686
  2150
  ... handle ERROR msg => cat_error msg "..."
wenzelm@18686
  2151
wenzelm@18686
  2152
Toplevel ML code (run directly or through the Isar toplevel) may be
wenzelm@18687
  2153
embedded into the Isar toplevel with exception display/debug like
wenzelm@18687
  2154
this:
wenzelm@18686
  2155
wenzelm@18686
  2156
  Isar.toplevel (fn () => ...)
wenzelm@18686
  2157
wenzelm@18686
  2158
INCOMPATIBILITY, removed special transform_error facilities, removed
wenzelm@18686
  2159
obsolete variants of user-level exceptions (ERROR_MESSAGE,
wenzelm@18686
  2160
Context.PROOF, ProofContext.CONTEXT, Proof.STATE, ProofHistory.FAIL)
wenzelm@18686
  2161
-- use plain ERROR instead.
wenzelm@18686
  2162
wenzelm@18815
  2163
* Isar: theory setup now has type (theory -> theory), instead of a
wenzelm@18722
  2164
list.  INCOMPATIBILITY, may use #> to compose setup functions.
wenzelm@18722
  2165
wenzelm@24706
  2166
* Isar: ML toplevel pretty printer for type Proof.context, subject to
wenzelm@24706
  2167
ProofContext.debug/verbose flags.
wenzelm@18815
  2168
wenzelm@18815
  2169
* Isar: Toplevel.theory_to_proof admits transactions that modify the
wenzelm@18815
  2170
theory before entering a proof state.  Transactions now always see a
wenzelm@18815
  2171
quasi-functional intermediate checkpoint, both in interactive and
wenzelm@18590
  2172
batch mode.
wenzelm@18567
  2173
wenzelm@24867
  2174
* Isar: simplified interfaces for outer syntax.  Renamed
wenzelm@24867
  2175
OuterSyntax.add_keywords to OuterSyntax.keywords.  Removed
wenzelm@24867
  2176
OuterSyntax.add_parsers -- this functionality is now included in
wenzelm@24867
  2177
OuterSyntax.command etc.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24867
  2178
wenzelm@17878
  2179
* Simplifier: the simpset of a running simplification process now
wenzelm@17878
  2180
contains a proof context (cf. Simplifier.the_context), which is the
wenzelm@17878
  2181
very context that the initial simpset has been retrieved from (by
wenzelm@17890
  2182
simpset_of/local_simpset_of).  Consequently, all plug-in components
wenzelm@17878
  2183
(solver, looper etc.) may depend on arbitrary proof data.
wenzelm@17878
  2184
wenzelm@17878
  2185
* Simplifier.inherit_context inherits the proof context (plus the
wenzelm@17878
  2186
local bounds) of the current simplification process; any simproc
wenzelm@17878
  2187
etc. that calls the Simplifier recursively should do this!  Removed
wenzelm@17878
  2188
former Simplifier.inherit_bounds, which is already included here --
wenzelm@17890
  2189
INCOMPATIBILITY.  Tools based on low-level rewriting may even have to
wenzelm@17890
  2190
specify an explicit context using Simplifier.context/theory_context.
wenzelm@17878
  2191
wenzelm@17878
  2192
* Simplifier/Classical Reasoner: more abstract interfaces
wenzelm@17878
  2193
change_simpset/claset for modifying the simpset/claset reference of a
wenzelm@17878
  2194
theory; raw versions simpset/claset_ref etc. have been discontinued --
wenzelm@17878
  2195
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17878
  2196
wenzelm@18540
  2197
* Provers: more generic wrt. syntax of object-logics, avoid hardwired
wenzelm@18540
  2198
"Trueprop" etc.
wenzelm@18540
  2199

* settings: the default heap location within ISABELLE_HOME_USER now
wenzelm@25433
  2204
includes ISABELLE_IDENTIFIER.  This simplifies use of multiple

  2205
Isabelle installations.
wenzelm@21471
  2206
wenzelm@20988
  2207
* isabelle-process: option -S (secure mode) disables some critical
wenzelm@20988

operations, notably runtime compilation and evaluation of ML source
wenzelm@20988
  2209
code.
wenzelm@20988

* Basic Isabelle mode for jEdit, see Isabelle/lib/jedit/.
wenzelm@24891
  2212
wenzelm@24801
  2213
* Support for parallel execution, using native multicore support of
wenzelm@24800
  2214
Poly/ML 5.1.  The theory loader exploits parallelism when processing
wenzelm@24800
  2215
independent theories, according to the given theory header
wenzelm@24800
  2216
specifications. The maximum number of worker threads is specified via
wenzelm@24800
  2217
usedir option -M or the "max-threads" setting in Proof General. A
wenzelm@24800
  2218
speedup factor of 1.5--3.5 can be expected on a 4-core machine, and up
wenzelm@24800
  2219
to 6 on a 8-core machine.  User-code needs to observe certain
wenzelm@24800
  2220
guidelines for thread-safe programming, see appendix A in the Isar
wenzelm@24800
  2221

  2228
*** General ***
wenzelm@14655
  2229
nipkow@15130
  2230
* Theory headers: the new header syntax for Isar theories is
nipkow@15130
  2231
nipkow@15130
  2232
  theory <name>
wenzelm@16234
  2233
  imports <theory1> ... <theoryN>
wenzelm@16234
  2234
  uses <file1> ... <fileM>
nipkow@15130
  2235
  begin
nipkow@15130
  2236
wenzelm@16234
  2237
where the 'uses' part is optional.  The previous syntax
wenzelm@16234
  2238
wenzelm@16234
  2239
  theory <name> = <theory1> + ... + <theoryN>:
wenzelm@16234
  2240
wenzelm@16717
  2241
will disappear in the next release.  Use isatool fixheaders to convert
wenzelm@16717
  2242
existing theory files.  Note that there is no change in ancient
wenzelm@17371
  2243
non-Isar theories now, but these will disappear soon.
nipkow@15130
  2244
berghofe@15475
  2245
* Theory loader: parent theories can now also be referred to via
wenzelm@16234
  2246
relative and absolute paths.
wenzelm@16234
  2247
wenzelm@17408
  2248
* Command 'find_theorems' searches for a list of criteria instead of a
wenzelm@17408
  2249
list of constants. Known criteria are: intro, elim, dest, name:string,
wenzelm@17408
  2250
simp:term, and any term. Criteria can be preceded by '-' to select
wenzelm@17408
  2251
theorems that do not match. Intro, elim, dest select theorems that
wenzelm@17408
  2252
match the current goal, name:s selects theorems whose fully qualified
wenzelm@17408
  2253
name contain s, and simp:term selects all simplification rules whose
wenzelm@17408
  2254
lhs match term.  Any other term is interpreted as pattern and selects
wenzelm@17408
  2255
all theorems matching the pattern. Available in ProofGeneral under
wenzelm@17408
  2256
'ProofGeneral -> Find Theorems' or C-c C-f.  Example:
wenzelm@16234
  2257
wenzelm@17275
  2258
  C-c C-f (100) "(_::nat) + _ + _" intro -name: "HOL."
wenzelm@16234
  2259
wenzelm@16234
  2260
prints the last 100 theorems matching the pattern "(_::nat) + _ + _",
wenzelm@16234
  2261
matching the current goal as introduction rule and not having "HOL."
wenzelm@16234
  2262
in their name (i.e. not being defined in theory HOL).
wenzelm@16013
  2263
wenzelm@17408
  2264
* Command 'thms_containing' has been discontinued in favour of
wenzelm@17408
  2265
'find_theorems'; INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17408
  2266
wenzelm@17385
  2267
* Communication with Proof General is now 8bit clean, which means that
wenzelm@17385
  2268
Unicode text in UTF-8 encoding may be used within theory texts (both
wenzelm@17408
  2269
formal and informal parts).  Cf. option -U of the Isabelle Proof
wenzelm@17538
  2270
General interface.  Here are some simple examples (cf. src/HOL/ex):

* Improved efficiency of the Simplifier and, to a lesser degree, the
wenzelm@17425
  2276
Classical Reasoner.  Typical big applications run around 2 times
wenzelm@17425
  2277

*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@15703
  2281
wenzelm@16234
  2282
* Commands 'display_drafts' and 'print_drafts' perform simple output
wenzelm@16234
  2283
of raw sources.  Only those symbols that do not require additional
wenzelm@16234
  2284
LaTeX packages (depending on comments in isabellesym.sty) are
wenzelm@16234
  2285
displayed properly, everything else is left verbatim.  isatool display
wenzelm@16234
  2286
and isatool print are used as front ends (these are subject to the
wenzelm@16234
  2287
DVI/PDF_VIEWER and PRINT_COMMAND settings, respectively).
wenzelm@16234
  2288
wenzelm@17047
  2289
* Command tags control specific markup of certain regions of text,
wenzelm@17047
  2290
notably folding and hiding.  Predefined tags include "theory" (for
wenzelm@17047
  2291
theory begin and end), "proof" for proof commands, and "ML" for
wenzelm@17047
  2292
commands involving ML code; the additional tags "visible" and
wenzelm@17047
  2293
"invisible" are unused by default.  Users may give explicit tag
wenzelm@17047
  2294
specifications in the text, e.g. ''by %invisible (auto)''.  The
wenzelm@17047
  2295
interpretation of tags is determined by the LaTeX job during document
wenzelm@17047
  2296
preparation: see option -V of isatool usedir, or options -n and -t of
wenzelm@17047
  2297
isatool document, or even the LaTeX macros \isakeeptag, \isafoldtag,
wenzelm@17047
  2298
\isadroptag.
wenzelm@17047
  2299
wenzelm@17047
  2300
Several document versions may be produced at the same time via isatool
wenzelm@17047
  2301
usedir (the generated index.html will link all of them).  Typical
wenzelm@17047
  2302
specifications include ''-V document=theory,proof,ML'' to present
wenzelm@17047
  2303
theory/proof/ML parts faithfully, ''-V outline=/proof,/ML'' to fold
wenzelm@17047
  2304
proof and ML commands, and ''-V mutilated=-theory,-proof,-ML'' to omit
wenzelm@17047
  2305
these parts without any formal replacement text.  The Isabelle site
wenzelm@17047
  2306
default settings produce ''document'' and ''outline'' versions as
wenzelm@17047
  2307
specified above.
wenzelm@16234
  2308
haftmann@17402
  2309
* Several new antiquotations:
wenzelm@15979
  2310
wenzelm@15979
  2311
  @{term_type term} prints a term with its type annotated;
wenzelm@15979
  2312
wenzelm@15979
  2313
  @{typeof term} prints the type of a term;
wenzelm@15979
  2314
wenzelm@16234
  2315
  @{const const} is the same as @{term const}, but checks that the
wenzelm@16234
  2316
  argument is a known logical constant;
wenzelm@15979
  2317
wenzelm@15979
  2318
  @{term_style style term} and @{thm_style style thm} print a term or
wenzelm@16234
  2319
  theorem applying a "style" to it
wenzelm@16234
  2320
wenzelm@17117
  2321
  @{ML text}
wenzelm@17117
  2322
wenzelm@16234
  2323
Predefined styles are 'lhs' and 'rhs' printing the lhs/rhs of
wenzelm@16234
  2324
definitions, equations, inequations etc., 'concl' printing only the
schirmer@17393
  2325
conclusion of a meta-logical statement theorem, and 'prem1' .. 'prem19'
wenzelm@16234
  2326
to print the specified premise.  TermStyle.add_style provides an ML
wenzelm@16234
  2327
interface for introducing further styles.  See also the "LaTeX Sugar"
wenzelm@17117
  2328
document practical applications.  The ML antiquotation prints
wenzelm@17117
  2329
type-checked ML expressions verbatim.
wenzelm@16234
  2330
wenzelm@17259
  2331
* Markup commands 'chapter', 'section', 'subsection', 'subsubsection',
wenzelm@17259
  2332
and 'text' support optional locale specification '(in loc)', which
wenzelm@17269
  2333
specifies the default context for interpreting antiquotations.  For
wenzelm@17269
  2334
example: 'text (in lattice) {* @{thm inf_assoc}*}'.
wenzelm@17259
  2335
wenzelm@17259
  2336
* Option 'locale=NAME' of antiquotations specifies an alternative
wenzelm@17259
  2337
context interpreting the subsequent argument.  For example: @{thm
wenzelm@17269
  2338
[locale=lattice] inf_assoc}.
wenzelm@17259
  2339
wenzelm@17097
  2340
* Proper output of proof terms (@{prf ...} and @{full_prf ...}) within
wenzelm@17097
  2341
a proof context.

* Proper output of antiquotations for theory commands involving a
wenzelm@17097
  2344
proof context (such as 'locale' or 'theorem (in loc) ...').
wenzelm@17097
  2345
wenzelm@17193
  2346
* Delimiters of outer tokens (string etc.) now produce separate LaTeX
wenzelm@17193

macros (\isachardoublequoteopen, isachardoublequoteclose etc.).
wenzelm@17193
  2348
wenzelm@17193
  2349
* isatool usedir: new option -C (default true) controls whether option
wenzelm@17193
  2350
-D should include a copy of the original document directory; -C false
wenzelm@17193
  2351
prevents unwanted effects such as copying of administrative CVS data.

* Considerably improved version of 'constdefs' command.  Now performs
wenzelm@16234
  2357
automatic type-inference of declared constants; additional support for
wenzelm@16234
  2358
local structure declarations (cf. locales and HOL records), see also
wenzelm@16234
  2359
isar-ref manual.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY: need to observe strictly
wenzelm@16234
  2360
sequential dependencies of definitions within a single 'constdefs'
wenzelm@16234
  2361
section; moreover, the declared name needs to be an identifier.  If
wenzelm@16234
  2362
all fails, consider to fall back on 'consts' and 'defs' separately.
wenzelm@16234
  2363
wenzelm@16234
  2364
* Improved indexed syntax and implicit structures.  First of all,
wenzelm@16234
  2365
indexed syntax provides a notational device for subscripted
wenzelm@16234
  2366
application, using the new syntax \<^bsub>term\<^esub> for arbitrary
wenzelm@16234
  2367
expressions.  Secondly, in a local context with structure
wenzelm@16234
  2368
declarations, number indexes \<^sub>n or the empty index (default
wenzelm@16234
  2369
number 1) refer to a certain fixed variable implicitly; option
wenzelm@16234
  2370
show_structs controls printing of implicit structures.  Typical
wenzelm@16234
  2371
applications of these concepts involve record types and locales.
wenzelm@16234
  2372
wenzelm@16234
  2373
* New command 'no_syntax' removes grammar declarations (and
wenzelm@16234
  2374
translations) resulting from the given syntax specification, which is
wenzelm@16234
  2375
interpreted in the same manner as for the 'syntax' command.
wenzelm@16234
  2376
wenzelm@16234
  2377
* 'Advanced' translation functions (parse_translation etc.) may depend
wenzelm@16234
  2378
on the signature of the theory context being presently used for
wenzelm@16234
  2379
parsing/printing, see also isar-ref manual.
wenzelm@16234
  2380
wenzelm@16856
  2381
* Improved 'oracle' command provides a type-safe interface to turn an
wenzelm@16856
  2382
ML expression of type theory -> T -> term into a primitive rule of
wenzelm@16856
  2383
type theory -> T -> thm (i.e. the functionality of Thm.invoke_oracle
wenzelm@16856
  2384
is already included here); see also FOL/ex/IffExample.thy;
wenzelm@16856
  2385
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@16856
  2386
wenzelm@17275
  2387
* axclass: name space prefix for class "c" is now "c_class" (was "c"
wenzelm@17275
  2388
before); "cI" is no longer bound, use "c.intro" instead.
wenzelm@17275
  2389
INCOMPATIBILITY.  This change avoids clashes of fact bindings for
wenzelm@17275
  2390
axclasses vs. locales.
wenzelm@17275
  2391
wenzelm@16234
  2392
* Improved internal renaming of symbolic identifiers -- attach primes
wenzelm@16234
  2393
instead of base 26 numbers.
wenzelm@16234
  2394
wenzelm@16234
  2395
* New flag show_question_marks controls printing of leading question
wenzelm@16234
  2396
marks in schematic variable names.
wenzelm@16234
  2397
wenzelm@16234
  2398
* In schematic variable names, *any* symbol following \<^isub> or
wenzelm@16234
  2399
\<^isup> is now treated as part of the base name.  For example, the
wenzelm@16234
  2400
following works without printing of awkward ".0" indexes:
wenzelm@16234
  2401
wenzelm@16234
  2402
  lemma "x\<^isub>1 = x\<^isub>2 ==> x\<^isub>2 = x\<^isub>1"
wenzelm@16234
  2403
    by simp
wenzelm@16234
  2404
wenzelm@16234
  2405
* Inner syntax includes (*(*nested*) comments*).
wenzelm@16234
  2406
wenzelm@17548
  2407
* Pretty printer now supports unbreakable blocks, specified in mixfix
wenzelm@16234
  2408
annotations as "(00...)".
wenzelm@16234
  2409
wenzelm@16234
  2410
* Clear separation of logical types and nonterminals, where the latter
wenzelm@16234
  2411
may only occur in 'syntax' specifications or type abbreviations.
wenzelm@16234
  2412
Before that distinction was only partially implemented via type class
wenzelm@16234
  2413
"logic" vs. "{}".  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY in rare cases of improper
wenzelm@16234
  2414
use of 'types'/'consts' instead of 'nonterminals'/'syntax'.  Some very
wenzelm@16234
  2415
exotic syntax specifications may require further adaption
wenzelm@17691
  2416
(e.g. Cube/Cube.thy).
wenzelm@16234
  2417
wenzelm@16234
  2418
* Removed obsolete type class "logic", use the top sort {} instead.
wenzelm@16234
  2419
Note that non-logical types should be declared as 'nonterminals'
wenzelm@16234
  2420
rather than 'types'.  INCOMPATIBILITY for new object-logic
wenzelm@16234
  2421
specifications.
wenzelm@16234
  2422
ballarin@17095
  2423
* Attributes 'induct' and 'cases': type or set names may now be
ballarin@17095
  2424
locally fixed variables as well.
ballarin@17095
  2425
wenzelm@16234
  2426
* Simplifier: can now control the depth to which conditional rewriting
wenzelm@16234
  2427
is traced via the PG menu Isabelle -> Settings -> Trace Simp Depth
wenzelm@16234
  2428
Limit.
wenzelm@16234
  2429
wenzelm@16234
  2430
* Simplifier: simplification procedures may now take the current
wenzelm@16234
  2431
simpset into account (cf. Simplifier.simproc(_i) / mk_simproc
wenzelm@16234
  2432
interface), which is very useful for calling the Simplifier
wenzelm@16234
  2433
recursively.  Minor INCOMPATIBILITY: the 'prems' argument of simprocs
wenzelm@16234
  2434
is gone -- use prems_of_ss on the simpset instead.  Moreover, the
wenzelm@16234
  2435
low-level mk_simproc no longer applies Logic.varify internally, to
wenzelm@16234
  2436
allow for use in a context of fixed variables.
wenzelm@16234
  2437
wenzelm@16234
  2438
* thin_tac now works even if the assumption being deleted contains !!
wenzelm@16234
  2439
or ==>.  More generally, erule now works even if the major premise of
wenzelm@16234
  2440
the elimination rule contains !! or ==>.
wenzelm@16234
  2441
wenzelm@17597

* Method 'rules' has been renamed to 'iprover'. INCOMPATIBILITY.
nipkow@17590
  2443
wenzelm@16234
  2444
* Reorganized bootstrapping of the Pure theories; CPure is now derived
wenzelm@16234
  2445
from Pure, which contains all common declarations already.  Both
wenzelm@16234
  2446
theories are defined via plain Isabelle/Isar .thy files.
wenzelm@16234
  2447
INCOMPATIBILITY: elements of CPure (such as the CPure.intro /
wenzelm@16234
  2448
CPure.elim / CPure.dest attributes) now appear in the Pure name space;
wenzelm@16234
  2449
use isatool fixcpure to adapt your theory and ML sources.
wenzelm@16234
  2450
wenzelm@16234
  2451
* New syntax 'name(i-j, i-, i, ...)' for referring to specific
wenzelm@16234
  2452
selections of theorems in named facts via index ranges.
wenzelm@16234
  2453
wenzelm@17097
  2454
* 'print_theorems': in theory mode, really print the difference
wenzelm@17097
  2455
wrt. the last state (works for interactive theory development only),
wenzelm@17097
  2456
in proof mode print all local facts (cf. 'print_facts');
wenzelm@17097
  2457
wenzelm@17397
  2458
* 'hide': option '(open)' hides only base names.
wenzelm@17397
  2459
wenzelm@17275
  2460
* More efficient treatment of intermediate checkpoints in interactive
wenzelm@17275
  2461
theory development.
wenzelm@17275
  2462
berghofe@17663
  2463
* Code generator is now invoked via code_module (incremental code
wenzelm@17664
  2464
generation) and code_library (modular code generation, ML structures
wenzelm@17664
  2465
for each theory).  INCOMPATIBILITY: new keywords 'file' and 'contains'
wenzelm@17664
  2466
must be quoted when used as identifiers.
wenzelm@17664
  2467
wenzelm@17664
  2468
* New 'value' command for reading, evaluating and printing terms using
wenzelm@17664
  2469
the code generator.  INCOMPATIBILITY: command keyword 'value' must be
wenzelm@17664
  2470
quoted when used as identifier.

*** Locales ***
ballarin@17095
  2474
wenzelm@17385
  2475
* New commands for the interpretation of locale expressions in
wenzelm@17385
  2476
theories (1), locales (2) and proof contexts (3).  These generate
wenzelm@17385
  2477
proof obligations from the expression specification.  After the
wenzelm@17385
  2478
obligations have been discharged, theorems of the expression are added
wenzelm@17385
  2479
to the theory, target locale or proof context.  The synopsis of the
wenzelm@17385
  2480
commands is a follows:
wenzelm@17385
  2481
ballarin@17095
  2482
  (1) interpretation expr inst
ballarin@17095
  2483
  (2) interpretation target < expr
ballarin@17095
  2484
  (3) interpret expr inst
wenzelm@17385
  2485
ballarin@17095
  2486
Interpretation in theories and proof contexts require a parameter
ballarin@17095
  2487
instantiation of terms from the current context.  This is applied to
wenzelm@17385
  2488
specifications and theorems of the interpreted expression.
wenzelm@17385
  2489
Interpretation in locales only permits parameter renaming through the
wenzelm@17385
  2490
locale expression.  Interpretation is smart in that interpretations
wenzelm@17385
  2491
that are active already do not occur in proof obligations, neither are
wenzelm@17385
  2492
instantiated theorems stored in duplicate.  Use 'print_interps' to
wenzelm@17385
  2493
inspect active interpretations of a particular locale.  For details,
ballarin@17436
  2494
see the Isar Reference manual.  Examples can be found in
ballarin@17436
  2495
HOL/Finite_Set.thy and HOL/Algebra/UnivPoly.thy.
wenzelm@16234
  2496
wenzelm@16234
  2497
INCOMPATIBILITY: former 'instantiate' has been withdrawn, use
wenzelm@16234
  2498
'interpret' instead.
wenzelm@16234
  2499
wenzelm@17385
  2500
* New context element 'constrains' for adding type constraints to
wenzelm@17385
  2501
parameters.
wenzelm@17385
  2502
wenzelm@17385
  2503
* Context expressions: renaming of parameters with syntax
wenzelm@17385
  2504
redeclaration.
ballarin@17095
  2505
ballarin@17095
  2506
* Locale declaration: 'includes' disallowed.
ballarin@17095
  2507
wenzelm@16234
  2508
* Proper static binding of attribute syntax -- i.e. types / terms /
wenzelm@16234
  2509
facts mentioned as arguments are always those of the locale definition
wenzelm@16234
  2510
context, independently of the context of later invocations.  Moreover,
wenzelm@16234
  2511
locale operations (renaming and type / term instantiation) are applied
wenzelm@16234
  2512
to attribute arguments as expected.
wenzelm@16234
  2513
wenzelm@16234
  2514
INCOMPATIBILITY of the ML interface: always pass Attrib.src instead of
wenzelm@16234
  2515
actual attributes; rare situations may require Attrib.attribute to
wenzelm@16234
  2516
embed those attributes into Attrib.src that lack concrete syntax.
wenzelm@16234
  2517
Attribute implementations need to cooperate properly with the static
wenzelm@16234
  2518
binding mechanism.  Basic parsers Args.XXX_typ/term/prop and
wenzelm@16234
  2519
Attrib.XXX_thm etc. already do the right thing without further
wenzelm@16234
  2520
intervention.  Only unusual applications -- such as "where" or "of"
wenzelm@16234
  2521
(cf. src/Pure/Isar/attrib.ML), which process arguments depending both
wenzelm@16234
  2522
on the context and the facts involved -- may have to assign parsed
wenzelm@16234
  2523
values to argument tokens explicitly.
wenzelm@16234
  2524
wenzelm@16234
  2525
* Changed parameter management in theorem generation for long goal
wenzelm@16234
  2526
statements with 'includes'.  INCOMPATIBILITY: produces a different
wenzelm@16234
  2527
theorem statement in rare situations.
wenzelm@16234
  2528
ballarin@17228
  2529
* Locale inspection command 'print_locale' omits notes elements.  Use
ballarin@17228

'print_locale!' to have them included in the output.

  2536
single-step rewriting: it now works in bound variable contexts. New is
wenzelm@16234
  2537
'subst (asm)', for rewriting an assumption.  INCOMPATIBILITY: may
wenzelm@16234
  2538
rewrite a different subterm than the original subst method, which is

still available as 'simplesubst'.
wenzelm@16234

wenzelm@16234
  2564
Moreover, the mathematically important symbolic identifier \<epsilon>
wenzelm@16234

Similarly for all quantifiers: "ALL x > y" etc.  The x-symbol for >=
wenzelm@17371
  2569
is \<ge>. New transitivity rules have been added to HOL/Orderings.thy to

  2584
The old syntax is still supported but will disappear in the next

wenzelm@16234
  2586
patterns (these are not perfect but work quite well):

  2596
finite sets: "setsum (%x. e) A", which used to be "\<Sum>x:A. e", is
wenzelm@17371

  2611
is now 'case (insert x F)' instead of the old counterintuitive 'case
wenzelm@16234
  2612
(insert F x)'.
wenzelm@16234
  2613
wenzelm@16234
  2614
* The 'refute' command has been extended to support a much larger
wenzelm@16234
  2615
fragment of HOL, including axiomatic type classes, constdefs and
wenzelm@16234
  2616
typedefs, inductive datatypes and recursion.

* New tactics 'sat' and 'satx' to prove propositional tautologies.
webertj@17700
  2619
Requires zChaff with proof generation to be installed.  See

wenzelm@16234
  2622
* Datatype induction via method 'induct' now preserves the name of the
wenzelm@16234
  2623
induction variable. For example, when proving P(xs::'a list) by
wenzelm@16234
  2624
induction on xs, the induction step is now P(xs) ==> P(a#xs) rather
wenzelm@16234
  2625
than P(list) ==> P(a#list) as previously.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY
wenzelm@16234
  2626
in unstructured proof scripts.
wenzelm@16234
  2627
wenzelm@16234
  2628
* Reworked implementation of records.  Improved scalability for
wenzelm@16234
  2629
records with many fields, avoiding performance problems for type
wenzelm@16234
  2630
inference. Records are no longer composed of nested field types, but
wenzelm@16234
  2631
of nested extension types. Therefore the record type only grows linear
wenzelm@16234
  2632
in the number of extensions and not in the number of fields.  The
wenzelm@16234
  2633
top-level (users) view on records is preserved.  Potential
wenzelm@16234
  2634
INCOMPATIBILITY only in strange cases, where the theory depends on the
wenzelm@16234
  2635
old record representation. The type generated for a record is called
wenzelm@16234
  2636
<record_name>_ext_type.
wenzelm@16234
  2637
wenzelm@16234
  2638
Flag record_quick_and_dirty_sensitive can be enabled to skip the
wenzelm@16234
  2639
proofs triggered by a record definition or a simproc (if
wenzelm@16234
  2640
quick_and_dirty is enabled).  Definitions of large records can take
wenzelm@16234
  2641
quite long.
wenzelm@16234
  2642
wenzelm@16234
  2643
New simproc record_upd_simproc for simplification of multiple record
wenzelm@16234
  2644
updates enabled by default.  Moreover, trivial updates are also
wenzelm@16234
  2645
removed: r(|x := x r|) = r.  INCOMPATIBILITY: old proofs break
wenzelm@16234
  2646
occasionally, since simplification is more powerful by default.

  2651
* Simplifier: automatically reasons about transitivity chains
wenzelm@16234
  2652
involving "trancl" (r^+) and "rtrancl" (r^*) by setting up tactics
wenzelm@16234
  2653
provided by Provers/trancl.ML as additional solvers.  INCOMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@16234
  2654
old proofs break occasionally as simplification may now solve more
wenzelm@16234
  2655
goals than previously.
wenzelm@16234

wenzelm@16234
  2657
* Simplifier: converts x <= y into x = y if assumption y <= x is
wenzelm@16234
  2658
present.  Works for all partial orders (class "order"), in particular
wenzelm@16234
  2659
numbers and sets.  For linear orders (e.g. numbers) it treats ~ x < y
wenzelm@16234
  2660
just like y <= x.
wenzelm@16234
  2661
wenzelm@16234
  2662
* Simplifier: new simproc for "let x = a in f x".  If a is a free or
wenzelm@16234
  2663
bound variable or a constant then the let is unfolded.  Otherwise
wenzelm@16234
  2664
first a is simplified to b, and then f b is simplified to g. If
wenzelm@16234
  2665
possible we abstract b from g arriving at "let x = b in h x",
wenzelm@16234
  2666
otherwise we unfold the let and arrive at g.  The simproc can be
wenzelm@16234
  2667
enabled/disabled by the reference use_let_simproc.  Potential
wenzelm@16234
  2668
INCOMPATIBILITY since simplification is more powerful by default.
