*** General ***
wenzelm@35260

wenzelm@36317
     9
* Schematic theorem statements need to be explicitly markup as such,
wenzelm@36317
    10
via commands 'schematic_lemma', 'schematic_theorem',
wenzelm@36317
    11
'schematic_corollary'.  Thus the relevance of the proof is made
wenzelm@36317
    12
syntactically clear, which impacts performance in a parallel or
wenzelm@36317
    13
asynchronous interactive environment.  Minor INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@36317
    14
wenzelm@35436
    15
* Authentic syntax for *all* logical entities (type classes, type
wenzelm@35436
    16
constructors, term constants): provides simple and robust
wenzelm@35436
    17
correspondence between formal entities and concrete syntax.  Within
wenzelm@35436
    18
the parse tree / AST representations, "constants" are decorated by
wenzelm@35436
    19
their category (class, type, const) and spelled out explicitly with
wenzelm@35436
    20
their full internal name.
wenzelm@35436
    21
wenzelm@35436
    22
Substantial INCOMPATIBILITY concerning low-level syntax declarations
wenzelm@35436
    23
and translations (translation rules and translation functions in ML).
wenzelm@35436
    24
Some hints on upgrading:
wenzelm@35260
    25
wenzelm@35260
    26
  - Many existing uses of 'syntax' and 'translations' can be replaced
wenzelm@35436
    27
    by more modern 'type_notation', 'notation' and 'abbreviation',
wenzelm@35436
    28
    which are independent of this issue.
wenzelm@35260
    29
wenzelm@35260
    30
  - 'translations' require markup within the AST; the term syntax
wenzelm@35260
    31
    provides the following special forms:
wenzelm@35260
    32
wenzelm@35260
    33
      CONST c   -- produces syntax version of constant c from context
wenzelm@35261
    34
      XCONST c  -- literally c, checked as constant from context
wenzelm@35261
    35
      c         -- literally c, if declared by 'syntax'
wenzelm@35261
    36
wenzelm@35261
    37
    Plain identifiers are treated as AST variables -- occasionally the
wenzelm@35261
    38
    system indicates accidental variables via the error "rhs contains
wenzelm@35261
    39
    extra variables".
wenzelm@35260
    40
wenzelm@35436
    41
    Type classes and type constructors are marked according to their
wenzelm@35436
    42
    concrete syntax.  Some old translations rules need to be written
wenzelm@35436
    43
    for the "type" category, using type constructor application
wenzelm@35436
    44
    instead of pseudo-term application of the default category
wenzelm@35436
    45
    "logic".
wenzelm@35436
    46
wenzelm@35260
    47
  - 'parse_translation' etc. in ML may use the following
wenzelm@35260
    48
    antiquotations:
wenzelm@35260
    49
wenzelm@35436
    50
      @{class_syntax c}   -- type class c within parse tree / AST
wenzelm@35436
    51
      @{term_syntax c}    -- type constructor c within parse tree / AST
wenzelm@35260
    52
      @{const_syntax c}   -- ML version of "CONST c" above
wenzelm@35260
    53
      @{syntax_const c}   -- literally c (checked wrt. 'syntax' declarations)
wenzelm@35260
    54
wenzelm@35436
    55
  - Literal types within 'typed_print_translations', i.e. those *not*
wenzelm@35436
    56
    represented as pseudo-terms are represented verbatim.  Use @{class
wenzelm@35436
    57
    c} or @{type_name c} here instead of the above syntax
wenzelm@35436
    58
    antiquotations.
wenzelm@35436
    59
wenzelm@35260
    60
Note that old non-authentic syntax was based on unqualified base
wenzelm@35436
    61
names, so all of the above "constant" names would coincide.  Recall
wenzelm@35436
    62
that 'print_syntax' and ML_command "set Syntax.trace_ast" help to
wenzelm@35436
    63
diagnose syntax problems.
wenzelm@35260
    64
wenzelm@35351
    65
* Type constructors admit general mixfix syntax, not just infix.
wenzelm@35351
    66
wenzelm@36508
    67
* Concrete syntax may be attached to local entities without a proof
wenzelm@36508
    68
body, too.  This works via regular mixfix annotations for 'fix',
wenzelm@36508
    69
'def', 'obtain' etc. or via the explicit 'write' command, which is
wenzelm@36508
    70
similar to the 'notation' command in theory specifications.
wenzelm@36508
    71
wenzelm@35613
    72
* Use of cumulative prems via "!" in some proof methods has been
wenzelm@35613
    73
discontinued (legacy feature).
wenzelm@35613
    74
boehmes@35979
    75
* References 'trace_simp' and 'debug_simp' have been replaced by
boehmes@35979
    76
configuration options stored in the context. Enabling tracing
boehmes@35979
    77
(the case of debugging is similar) in proofs works via
boehmes@35979
    78
boehmes@35979
    79
  using [[trace_simp=true]]
boehmes@35979
    80
boehmes@35979
    81
Tracing is then active for all invocations of the simplifier
boehmes@35995
    82
in subsequent goal refinement steps. Tracing may also still be
boehmes@35995
    83
enabled or disabled via the ProofGeneral settings menu.
boehmes@35979
    84
wenzelm@36177
    85
* Separate commands 'hide_class', 'hide_type', 'hide_const',
wenzelm@36177
    86
'hide_fact' replace the former 'hide' KIND command.  Minor
wenzelm@36177
    87
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@36177
    88
wenzelm@35260
    89
haftmann@34170
    90
*** Pure ***
haftmann@34170
    91
haftmann@36460
    92
* Empty class specifications observe default sort.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@36460
    93
haftmann@36446
    94
* Old 'axclass' has been discontinued.  Use 'class' instead.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@36446
    95
haftmann@36147
    96
* Code generator: simple concept for abstract datatypes obeying invariants.
haftmann@36147
    97
wenzelm@35765
    98
* Local theory specifications may depend on extra type variables that
wenzelm@35765
    99
are not present in the result type -- arguments TYPE('a) :: 'a itself
wenzelm@35765
   100
are added internally.  For example:
wenzelm@35765
   101
wenzelm@35765
   102
  definition unitary :: bool where "unitary = (ALL (x::'a) y. x = y)"
wenzelm@35765
   103
haftmann@34170
   104
* Code generator: details of internal data cache have no impact on
haftmann@34170
   105
the user space functionality any longer.
haftmann@34170
   106
ballarin@36093
   107
* Methods unfold_locales and intro_locales ignore non-locale subgoals.  This
ballarin@36093
   108
is more appropriate for interpretations with 'where'.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@34170
   109
wenzelm@35129
   110
* Discontinued unnamed infix syntax (legacy feature for many years) --
wenzelm@35130
   111
need to specify constant name and syntax separately.  Internal ML
wenzelm@35130
   112
datatype constructors have been renamed from InfixName to Infix etc.
wenzelm@35130
   113
Minor INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@35129
   114
wenzelm@36356
   115
* Command 'example_proof' opens an empty proof body.  This allows to
wenzelm@36356
   116
experiment with Isar, without producing any persistent result.
wenzelm@36356
   117
wenzelm@35413
   118
* Commands 'type_notation' and 'no_type_notation' declare type syntax
wenzelm@35413
   119
within a local theory context, with explicit checking of the
wenzelm@35413
   120
constructors involved (in contrast to the raw 'syntax' versions).
wenzelm@35413
   121
wenzelm@36178
   122
* Commands 'types' and 'typedecl' now work within a local theory
wenzelm@36178
   123
context -- without introducing dependencies on parameters or
wenzelm@36178
   124
assumptions, which is not possible in Isabelle/Pure.
wenzelm@35681
   125
wenzelm@36454
   126
* Command 'defaultsort' is renamed to 'default_sort', it works within
wenzelm@36454
   127
a local theory context.  Minor INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@36454
   128
krauss@36044
   129
* Proof terms: Type substitutions on proof constants now use canonical
krauss@36044
   130
order of type variables. INCOMPATIBILITY: Tools working with proof
krauss@36044
   131
terms may need to be adapted.
krauss@36044

haftmann@33993
   134
*** HOL ***
haftmann@33993
   135
haftmann@36147
   136
* Library theory 'RBT' renamed to 'RBT_Impl'; new library theory 'RBT'
haftmann@36147
   137
provides abstract red-black tree type which is backed by RBT_Impl
haftmann@36147
   138
as implementation.  INCOMPATIBILTY.
haftmann@36147
   139
wenzelm@35745
   140
* Command 'typedef' now works within a local theory context -- without
wenzelm@35745
   141
introducing dependencies on parameters or assumptions, which is not
wenzelm@35745
   142
possible in Isabelle/Pure/HOL.  Note that the logical environment may
wenzelm@35745
   143
contain multiple interpretations of local typedefs (with different
wenzelm@35745
   144
non-emptiness proofs), even in a global theory context.
wenzelm@35745
   145
wenzelm@35763
   146
* Theory Library/Coinductive_List has been removed -- superceded by
wenzelm@35763
   147
AFP/thys/Coinductive.
wenzelm@35763
   148
haftmann@35728
   149
* Split off theory Big_Operators containing setsum, setprod, Inf_fin, Sup_fin,
haftmann@35728
   150
Min, Max from theory Finite_Set.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@35728
   151
haftmann@35372
   152
* Theory "Rational" renamed to "Rat", for consistency with "Nat", "Int" etc.
haftmann@35372
   153
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@35372
   154
haftmann@35042
   155
* New set of rules "ac_simps" provides combined assoc / commute rewrites
haftmann@35042
   156
for all interpretations of the appropriate generic locales.
haftmann@35042
   157
haftmann@35050
   158
* Renamed theory "OrderedGroup" to "Groups" and split theory "Ring_and_Field"
haftmann@35050
   159
into theories "Rings" and "Fields";  for more appropriate and more
haftmann@35050
   160
consistent names suitable for name prefixes within the HOL theories.
haftmann@35050
   161
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@35050
   162
haftmann@35084
   163
* Some generic constants have been put to appropriate theories:
haftmann@36416
   164
  * less_eq, less: Orderings
haftmann@36416
   165
  * zero, one, plus, minus, uminus, times, abs, sgn: Groups
haftmann@36416
   166
  * inverse, divide: Rings
haftmann@35084
   167
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@35084
   168
haftmann@35032
   169
* More consistent naming of type classes involving orderings (and lattices):

   210
  a separate theory Library/Lattice_Algebras.thy:

haftmann@35027
   218
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@35027
   219
haftmann@36416
   220
* Refined field classes:
haftmann@36416
   221
  * classes division_ring_inverse_zero, field_inverse_zero, linordered_field_inverse_zero
haftmann@36416
   222
    include rule inverse 0 = 0 -- subsumes former division_by_zero class.
haftmann@36416
   223
  * numerous lemmas have been ported from field to division_ring;
haftmann@36416
   224
  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@36416
   225
haftmann@36416
   226
* Refined algebra theorem collections:
haftmann@36416
   227
  * dropped theorem group group_simps, use algebra_simps instead;
haftmann@36416
   228
  * dropped theorem group ring_simps, use field_simps instead;
haftmann@36416
   229
  * proper theorem collection field_simps subsumes former theorem groups field_eq_simps and field_simps;
haftmann@36416
   230
  * dropped lemma eq_minus_self_iff which is a duplicate for equal_neg_zero.

* Sorts.certify_sort and derived "cert" operations for types and terms
wenzelm@36429
   311
no longer minimize sorts.  Thus certification at the boundary of the
wenzelm@36429
   312
inference kernel becomes invariant under addition of class relations,
wenzelm@36429
   313
which is an important monotonicity principle.  Sorts are now minimized
wenzelm@36429
   314
in the syntax layer only, at the boundary between the end-user and the

wenzelm@35361
   325
    @{nonterminal NAME}   -- type of concrete syntactic category
wenzelm@35361
   326
    @{type_syntax NAME}   -- syntax representation of any of the above
wenzelm@35361
   327
wenzelm@35401

wenzelm@35401
   331
wenzelm@35111
   332
* Antiquotation @{syntax_const NAME} ensures that NAME refers to a raw
wenzelm@35111
   333
syntax constant (cf. 'syntax' command).
wenzelm@35111
   334
wenzelm@36162
   335
* Antiquotation @{make_string} inlines a function to print arbitrary
wenzelm@36162
   336

wenzelm@36162
   337
and may fall back on "?" in certain situations.
wenzelm@36162
   338
wenzelm@35021

wenzelm@35021
   340
emphasize that this is in no way a standard operation.

   341
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@35021

wenzelm@34076

wenzelm@34076
   348
wenzelm@34259
   349
* Discontinued old TheoryDataFun with its copy/init operation -- data
wenzelm@34259
   350
needs to be pure.  Functor Theory_Data_PP retains the traditional
wenzelm@34259
   351
Pretty.pp argument to merge, which is absent in the standard
wenzelm@34259
   352
Theory_Data version.
wenzelm@34259
   353
wenzelm@35845
   354
* Renamed varify/unvarify operations to varify_global/unvarify_global
wenzelm@35845
   355
to emphasize that these only work in a global situation (which is
wenzelm@35845
   356
quite rare).
wenzelm@35845
   357
wenzelm@36000

* New proof method "smt" for a combination of first-order logic with
wenzelm@33842
   418
equality, linear and nonlinear (natural/integer/real) arithmetic, and
wenzelm@33842
   419
fixed-size bitvectors; there is also basic support for higher-order
wenzelm@33842
   420
features (esp. lambda abstractions).  It is an incomplete decision
wenzelm@33842
   421
procedure based on external SMT solvers using the oracle mechanism;
wenzelm@33842
   422
for the SMT solver Z3, this method is proof-producing.  Certificates
wenzelm@33842
   423
are provided to avoid calling the external solvers solely for
wenzelm@33842
   424
re-checking proofs.  Due to a remote SMT service there is no need for
wenzelm@33842
   425
installing SMT solvers locally.  See src/HOL/SMT.
wenzelm@33842
   426
wenzelm@33842
   427
* New commands to load and prove verification conditions generated by
wenzelm@33842
   428
the Boogie program verifier or derived systems (e.g. the Verifying C
wenzelm@33842
   429
Compiler (VCC) or Spec#).  See src/HOL/Boogie.
wenzelm@33842
   430
wenzelm@33842

haftmann@33860
   437
haftmann@33860

haftmann@33860
   441
default generators are provided for all suitable HOL types, records
haftmann@33860

   443
Library/SML_Quickcheck.
haftmann@33860

wenzelm@33843
   445
* New testing tool Mirabelle for automated proof tools.  Applies
wenzelm@33843
   446
several tools and tactics like sledgehammer, metis, or quickcheck, to
wenzelm@33843
   447
every proof step in a theory.  To be used in batch mode via the

wenzelm@33843
   450
* New proof method "sos" (sum of squares) for nonlinear real
wenzelm@33843
   451
arithmetic (originally due to John Harison). It requires theory
wenzelm@33843
   452
Library/Sum_Of_Squares.  It is not a complete decision procedure but
wenzelm@33843
   453
works well in practice on quantifier-free real arithmetic with +, -,
wenzelm@33843
   454
*, ^, =, <= and <, i.e. boolean combinations of equalities and
wenzelm@33843
   455
inequalities between polynomials.  It makes use of external
wenzelm@33843
   456
semidefinite programming solvers.  Method "sos" generates a
wenzelm@33843
   457
certificate that can be pasted into the proof thus avoiding the need
wenzelm@33843
   458
to call an external tool every time the proof is checked.  See

wenzelm@33843
   466
* New Sledgehammer option "Full Types" in Proof General settings menu.
wenzelm@33843
   467
Causes full type information to be output to the ATPs.  This slows
wenzelm@33843
   468
ATPs down considerably but eliminates a source of unsound "proofs"
wenzelm@33843
   469
that fail later.
wenzelm@33843
   470
wenzelm@33843
   471
* New method "metisFT": A version of metis that uses full type
wenzelm@33843
   472
information in order to avoid failures of proof reconstruction.
wenzelm@33843
   473
wenzelm@33843
   474
* New evaluator "approximate" approximates an real valued term using
wenzelm@33843
   475
the same method as the approximation method.
wenzelm@33843
   476
wenzelm@33843
   477
* Method "approximate" now supports arithmetic expressions as
wenzelm@33843

* Theory GCD includes functions Gcd/GCD and Lcm/LCM for the gcd and
wenzelm@33873
   504
lcm of finite and infinite sets. It is shown that they form a complete

div_mult_mult1; theorems div_mult_mult1, div_mult_mult2,
haftmann@32600
   509
div_mult_mult1_if, div_mult_mult1 and div_mult_mult2 have been
haftmann@32600
   510
generalized to class semiring_div, subsuming former theorems
haftmann@32600
   511
zdiv_zmult_zmult1, zdiv_zmult_zmult1_if, zdiv_zmult_zmult1 and
haftmann@32600

* Refinements to lattice classes and sets:
haftmann@32064
   516
  - less default intro/elim rules in locale variant, more default
haftmann@32064
   517
    intro/elim rules in class variant: more uniformity
wenzelm@33842
   518
  - lemma ge_sup_conv renamed to le_sup_iff, in accordance with
wenzelm@33842
   519
    le_inf_iff
wenzelm@33842
   520
  - dropped lemma alias inf_ACI for inf_aci (same for sup_ACI and
wenzelm@33842

    sup_aci)
haftmann@32064
   522
  - renamed ACI to inf_sup_aci
haftmann@32600
   523
  - new class "boolean_algebra"
wenzelm@33842
   524
  - class "complete_lattice" moved to separate theory
haftmann@33860
   525
    "Complete_Lattice"; corresponding constants (and abbreviations)

INCOMPATIBILITY.  Care is required when theorems Int_subset_iff or
wenzelm@33842
   550
Un_subset_iff are explicitly deleted as default simp rules; then also
wenzelm@33842
   551
their lattice counterparts le_inf_iff and le_sup_iff have to be
haftmann@32691
   552
deleted to achieve the desired effect.
haftmann@32064
   553
wenzelm@33842
   554
* Rules inf_absorb1, inf_absorb2, sup_absorb1, sup_absorb2 are no simp
wenzelm@33842
   555
rules by default any longer; the same applies to min_max.inf_absorb1
wenzelm@33842
   556
etc.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@33842
   557
wenzelm@33842

   559
pred_set_conv by default.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@33842

wenzelm@33842
   561
* Power operations on relations and functions are now one dedicated
haftmann@32706
   562
constant "compow" with infix syntax "^^".  Power operation on
wenzelm@31547
   563
multiplicative monoids retains syntax "^" and is now defined generic
wenzelm@31547
   564
in class power.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@31547
   565
wenzelm@33842
   566
* Relation composition "R O S" now has a more standard argument order:
wenzelm@33842
   567
"R O S = {(x, z). EX y. (x, y) : R & (y, z) : S}".  INCOMPATIBILITY,
wenzelm@33842

rewrite propositions with "S O R" --> "R O S". Proofs may occasionally
wenzelm@33842
   569
break, since the O_assoc rule was not rewritten like this.  Fix using
wenzelm@33842

O_assoc[symmetric].  The same applies to the curried version "R OO S".
wenzelm@32427

nipkow@33057
   572
* Function "Inv" is renamed to "inv_into" and function "inv" is now an
wenzelm@33842
   573
abbreviation for "inv_into UNIV".  Lemmas are renamed accordingly.
nipkow@32988

   579
* Changed "DERIV_intros" to a dynamic fact, which can be augmented by
wenzelm@33842
   580
the attribute of the same name.  Each of the theorems in the list
wenzelm@33842
   581
DERIV_intros assumes composition with an additional function and
wenzelm@33842
   582
matches a variable to the derivative, which has to be solved by the
wenzelm@33842
   583
Simplifier.  Hence (auto intro!: DERIV_intros) computes the derivative
wenzelm@33873
   584
of most elementary terms.  Former Maclauren.DERIV_tac and
wenzelm@33873
   585
Maclauren.deriv_tac should be replaced by (auto intro!: DERIV_intros).

   586
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@33860
   587
haftmann@33860

    code_unfold     replaces    code unfold
haftmann@33860
   590
    code_post       replaces    code post

  INCOMPATIBILITY.
nipkow@33673

   600
INCOMPATIBILITY, use "undefined" directly.
wenzelm@33843
   601
haftmann@33860

    Suc_eq_add_numeral_1 -> Suc_eq_plus1
haftmann@33860
   604
    Suc_eq_add_numeral_1_left -> Suc_eq_plus1_left

INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@33860
   612
haftmann@33860

   619
* Theory Representable defines a class "rep" of domains that are
wenzelm@33842
   620
representable (via an ep-pair) in the universal domain type "udom".
huffman@33825
   621
Instances are provided for all type constructors defined in HOLCF.
huffman@33825
   622
huffman@33825
   623
* The 'new_domain' command is a purely definitional version of the
huffman@33825
   624
domain package, for representable domains.  Syntax is identical to the
huffman@33825
   625
old domain package.  The 'new_domain' package also supports indirect
huffman@33825
   626
recursion using previously-defined type constructors.  See
wenzelm@33842
   627
src/HOLCF/ex/New_Domain.thy for examples.
wenzelm@33842
   628
wenzelm@33842
   629
* Method "fixrec_simp" unfolds one step of a fixrec-defined constant
huffman@33825
   630
on the left-hand side of an equation, and then performs
huffman@33825
   631
simplification.  Rewriting is done using rules declared with the
wenzelm@33842
   632
"fixrec_simp" attribute.  The "fixrec_simp" method is intended as a
wenzelm@33842
   633
replacement for "fixpat"; see src/HOLCF/ex/Fixrec_ex.thy for examples.
huffman@33825
   634
huffman@33825
   635
* The pattern-match compiler in 'fixrec' can now handle constructors
huffman@33825
   636
with HOL function types.  Pattern-match combinators for the Pair
huffman@33825
   637
constructor are pre-configured.
huffman@33825
   638
huffman@33825
   639
* The 'fixrec' package now produces better fixed-point induction rules
huffman@33825
   640
for mutually-recursive definitions:  Induction rules have conclusions
huffman@33825
   641
of the form "P foo bar" instead of "P <foo, bar>".
huffman@33825
   642
huffman@33825
   643
* The constant "sq_le" (with infix syntax "<<" or "\<sqsubseteq>") has
huffman@33825
   644
been renamed to "below".  The name "below" now replaces "less" in many
wenzelm@33842
   645
theorem names.  (Legacy theorem names using "less" are still supported
wenzelm@33842
   646
as well.)
huffman@33825
   647
huffman@33825
   648
* The 'fixrec' package now supports "bottom patterns".  Bottom
huffman@33825
   649
patterns can be used to generate strictness rules, or to make
huffman@33825
   650
functions more strict (much like the bang-patterns supported by the
wenzelm@33873
   651
Glasgow Haskell Compiler).  See src/HOLCF/ex/Fixrec_ex.thy for
wenzelm@33873
   652

* Support for Poly/ML 5.3.0, with improved reporting of compiler
wenzelm@33843
   658
errors and run-time exceptions, including detailed source positions.
wenzelm@33843
   659
wenzelm@33843
   660
* Structure Name_Space (formerly NameSpace) now manages uniquely
wenzelm@33843
   661
identified entries, with some additional information such as source
wenzelm@33843
   662
position, logical grouping etc.
wenzelm@33843
   663
wenzelm@33524
   664
* Theory and context data is now introduced by the simplified and
wenzelm@33524
   665
modernized functors Theory_Data, Proof_Data, Generic_Data.  Data needs
wenzelm@33524
   666
to be pure, but the old TheoryDataFun for mutable data (with explicit
wenzelm@33524
   667
copy operation) is still available for some time.
wenzelm@33524
   668
wenzelm@32742
   669
* Structure Synchronized (cf. src/Pure/Concurrent/synchronized.ML)
wenzelm@32742
   670
provides a high-level programming interface to synchronized state
wenzelm@32742
   671
variables with atomic update.  This works via pure function
wenzelm@32742
   672
application within a critical section -- its runtime should be as
wenzelm@32742
   673
short as possible; beware of deadlocks if critical code is nested,
wenzelm@32742
   674
either directly or indirectly via other synchronized variables!
wenzelm@32742
   675
wenzelm@32742
   676
* Structure Unsynchronized (cf. src/Pure/ML-Systems/unsynchronized.ML)
wenzelm@32742
   677
wraps raw ML references, explicitly indicating their non-thread-safe
wenzelm@32742
   678
behaviour.  The Isar toplevel keeps this structure open, to
wenzelm@32742
   679
accommodate Proof General as well as quick and dirty interactive
wenzelm@32742
   680
experiments with references.
wenzelm@32742
   681
wenzelm@32365
   682
* PARALLEL_CHOICE and PARALLEL_GOALS provide basic support for
wenzelm@32365
   683
parallel tactical reasoning.
wenzelm@32365
   684
wenzelm@32427
   685
* Tacticals Subgoal.FOCUS, Subgoal.FOCUS_PREMS, Subgoal.FOCUS_PARAMS
wenzelm@32427
   686
are similar to SUBPROOF, but are slightly more flexible: only the
wenzelm@32427
   687
specified parts of the subgoal are imported into the context, and the
wenzelm@32427
   688
body tactic may introduce new subgoals and schematic variables.
wenzelm@32427
   689
wenzelm@32427
   690
* Old tactical METAHYPS, which does not observe the proof context, has
wenzelm@32427
   691
been renamed to Old_Goals.METAHYPS and awaits deletion.  Use SUBPROOF
wenzelm@32427
   692
or Subgoal.FOCUS etc.
wenzelm@32216
   693
wenzelm@31971
   694
* Renamed functor TableFun to Table, and GraphFun to Graph.  (Since
wenzelm@31971
   695
functors have their own ML name space there is no point to mark them
wenzelm@31971
   696
separately.)  Minor INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@31971
   697
wenzelm@31901

   704
mode, which avoids critical setmp.
wenzelm@33843
   705
wenzelm@31306
   706
* Eliminated old Attrib.add_attributes, Method.add_methods and related
wenzelm@33842
   707
combinators for "args".  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to use simplified
wenzelm@31306
   708
Attrib/Method.setup introduced in Isabelle2009.
wenzelm@31304
   709
wenzelm@32151
   710
* Proper context for simpset_of, claset_of, clasimpset_of.  May fall
wenzelm@32151

   712
last resort.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@32151
   713
wenzelm@32092
   714
* Display.pretty_thm now requires a proper context (cf. former
wenzelm@32092
   715
ProofContext.pretty_thm).  May fall back on Display.pretty_thm_global
wenzelm@32092
   716

IsaMakefile, not just hardwired "logics".
wenzelm@32326
   735
wenzelm@33842

interface tool configuration is now more explicit, see also the
wenzelm@28915
   771
Isabelle system manual.  In particular, Proof General is now available
wenzelm@28915
   772
via "isabelle emacs".
wenzelm@28504
   773
wenzelm@28504
   774
INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt derivative scripts.  Users may need to
wenzelm@28504
   775
purge installed copies of Isabelle executables and re-run "isabelle
wenzelm@28504
   776
install -p ...", or use symlinks.
wenzelm@28504
   777
wenzelm@28914
   778
* The default for ISABELLE_HOME_USER is now ~/.isabelle instead of the
wenzelm@30845
   779
old ~/isabelle, which was slightly non-standard and apt to cause
wenzelm@30845
   780
surprises on case-insensitive file-systems (such as Mac OS).
wenzelm@28914
   781
wenzelm@28914
   782
INCOMPATIBILITY, need to move existing ~/isabelle/etc,
wenzelm@28914
   783
~/isabelle/heaps, ~/isabelle/browser_info to the new place.  Special
wenzelm@28914
   784
care is required when using older releases of Isabelle.  Note that
wenzelm@28914
   785
ISABELLE_HOME_USER can be changed in Isabelle/etc/settings of any
wenzelm@30845
   786
Isabelle distribution, in order to use the new ~/.isabelle uniformly.
wenzelm@28914
   787
wenzelm@29161
   788
* Proofs of fully specified statements are run in parallel on
wenzelm@30845
   789
multi-core systems.  A speedup factor of 2.5 to 3.2 can be expected on
wenzelm@30845
   790
a regular 4-core machine, if the initial heap space is made reasonably
wenzelm@30845
   791
large (cf. Poly/ML option -H).  (Requires Poly/ML 5.2.1 or later.)
wenzelm@30845
   792
wenzelm@30845
   793
* The main reference manuals ("isar-ref", "implementation", and
wenzelm@30845
   794
"system") have been updated and extended.  Formally checked references
wenzelm@30845
   795
as hyperlinks are now available uniformly.

   798
*** Pure ***
wenzelm@27599
   799
wenzelm@30845
   800
* Complete re-implementation of locales.  INCOMPATIBILITY in several
wenzelm@30845
   801
respects.  The most important changes are listed below.  See the
wenzelm@30845
   802
Tutorial on Locales ("locales" manual) for details.
ballarin@29253
   803
ballarin@29253
   804
- In locale expressions, instantiation replaces renaming.  Parameters
ballarin@29253
   805
must be declared in a for clause.  To aid compatibility with previous
ballarin@29253
   806
parameter inheritance, in locale declarations, parameters that are not
ballarin@29253
   807
'touched' (instantiation position "_" or omitted) are implicitly added
ballarin@29253
   808
with their syntax at the beginning of the for clause.
ballarin@29253
   809
ballarin@29253
   810
- Syntax from abbreviations and definitions in locales is available in
ballarin@29253
   811
locale expressions and context elements.  The latter is particularly
ballarin@29253
   812
useful in locale declarations.
ballarin@29253
   813
ballarin@29253
   814
- More flexible mechanisms to qualify names generated by locale
ballarin@29253
   815
expressions.  Qualifiers (prefixes) may be specified in locale
wenzelm@30728
   816
expressions, and can be marked as mandatory (syntax: "name!:") or
wenzelm@30728
   817
optional (syntax "name?:").  The default depends for plain "name:"
wenzelm@30728
   818
depends on the situation where a locale expression is used: in
wenzelm@30728
   819
commands 'locale' and 'sublocale' prefixes are optional, in
wenzelm@30845
   820
'interpretation' and 'interpret' prefixes are mandatory.  The old
wenzelm@30728
   821
implicit qualifiers derived from the parameter names of a locale are
wenzelm@30728
   822
no longer generated.
wenzelm@30106
   823
wenzelm@30845
   824
- Command "sublocale l < e" replaces "interpretation l < e".  The
wenzelm@30106
   825
instantiation clause in "interpretation" and "interpret" (square
wenzelm@30106
   826
brackets) is no longer available.  Use locale expressions.
ballarin@29253
   827
wenzelm@30845
   828
- When converting proof scripts, mandatory qualifiers in
wenzelm@30728
   829
'interpretation' and 'interpret' should be retained by default, even
wenzelm@30845
   830
if this is an INCOMPATIBILITY compared to former behavior.  In the
wenzelm@30845
   831
worst case, use the "name?:" form for non-mandatory ones.  Qualifiers
wenzelm@30845
   832
in locale expressions range over a single locale instance only.
wenzelm@30845
   833
wenzelm@30845
   834
- Dropped locale element "includes".  This is a major INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   835
In existing theorem specifications replace the includes element by the
wenzelm@30845
   836
respective context elements of the included locale, omitting those
wenzelm@30845
   837
that are already present in the theorem specification.  Multiple
wenzelm@30845
   838
assume elements of a locale should be replaced by a single one
wenzelm@30845
   839
involving the locale predicate.  In the proof body, declarations (most
wenzelm@30845
   840
notably theorems) may be regained by interpreting the respective
wenzelm@30845
   841
locales in the proof context as required (command "interpret").
wenzelm@30845
   842
wenzelm@30845
   843
If using "includes" in replacement of a target solely because the
wenzelm@30845
   844
parameter types in the theorem are not as general as in the target,
wenzelm@30845
   845
consider declaring a new locale with additional type constraints on
wenzelm@30845
   846
the parameters (context element "constrains").
wenzelm@30845
   847
wenzelm@30845
   848
- Discontinued "locale (open)".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   849
wenzelm@30845
   850
- Locale interpretation commands no longer attempt to simplify goal.
wenzelm@30845
   851
INCOMPATIBILITY: in rare situations the generated goal differs.  Use
wenzelm@30845
   852
methods intro_locales and unfold_locales to clarify.
wenzelm@30845
   853
wenzelm@30845
   854
- Locale interpretation commands no longer accept interpretation
wenzelm@30845
   855
attributes.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   856
wenzelm@30845
   857
* Class declaration: so-called "base sort" must not be given in import
wenzelm@30845
   858
list any longer, but is inferred from the specification.  Particularly
wenzelm@30845
   859
in HOL, write
wenzelm@30845
   860
wenzelm@30845
   861
    class foo = ...
wenzelm@30845
   862
wenzelm@30845
   863
instead of
wenzelm@30845
   864
wenzelm@30845
   865
    class foo = type + ...
wenzelm@30845
   866
wenzelm@30845
   867
* Class target: global versions of theorems stemming do not carry a
wenzelm@30845
   868
parameter prefix any longer.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   869
wenzelm@30845
   870
* Class 'instance' command no longer accepts attached definitions.
wenzelm@30845
   871
INCOMPATIBILITY, use proper 'instantiation' target instead.
wenzelm@30845
   872
wenzelm@30845
   873
* Recovered hiding of consts, which was accidentally broken in
wenzelm@30845
   874
Isabelle2007.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY, ``hide const c'' really
wenzelm@30845
   875
makes c inaccessible; consider using ``hide (open) const c'' instead.
wenzelm@30845
   876
wenzelm@30845
   877
* Slightly more coherent Pure syntax, with updated documentation in
wenzelm@30845
   878
isar-ref manual.  Removed locales meta_term_syntax and
wenzelm@30845
   879
meta_conjunction_syntax: TERM and &&& (formerly &&) are now permanent,
wenzelm@30845
   880
INCOMPATIBILITY in rare situations.  Note that &&& should not be used
wenzelm@30845
   881
directly in regular applications.
wenzelm@30845
   882
wenzelm@30845
   883
* There is a new syntactic category "float_const" for signed decimal
wenzelm@30845
   884
fractions (e.g. 123.45 or -123.45).
wenzelm@30845
   885
wenzelm@30845
   886
* Removed exotic 'token_translation' command.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use ML
wenzelm@30845
   887
interface with 'setup' command instead.
wenzelm@30845
   888
wenzelm@30845
   889
* Command 'local_setup' is similar to 'setup', but operates on a local
wenzelm@30845
   890
theory context.
haftmann@27104
   891
wenzelm@28114
   892
* The 'axiomatization' command now only works within a global theory
wenzelm@28114
   893
context.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@28114
   894
wenzelm@30845
   895
* Goal-directed proof now enforces strict proof irrelevance wrt. sort
wenzelm@30845
   896
hypotheses.  Sorts required in the course of reasoning need to be
wenzelm@30845
   897
covered by the constraints in the initial statement, completed by the
wenzelm@30845
   898
type instance information of the background theory.  Non-trivial sort
wenzelm@30845
   899
hypotheses, which rarely occur in practice, may be specified via
wenzelm@30845
   900
vacuous propositions of the form SORT_CONSTRAINT('a::c).  For example:
wenzelm@30845
   901
wenzelm@30845
   902
  lemma assumes "SORT_CONSTRAINT('a::empty)" shows False ...
wenzelm@30845
   903
wenzelm@30845
   904
The result contains an implicit sort hypotheses as before --
wenzelm@30845
   905
SORT_CONSTRAINT premises are eliminated as part of the canonical rule
wenzelm@30845
   906
normalization.
wenzelm@30845
   907
wenzelm@30845
   908
* Generalized Isar history, with support for linear undo, direct state
wenzelm@30845
   909
addressing etc.
wenzelm@30845
   910
wenzelm@30845
   911
* Changed defaults for unify configuration options:
wenzelm@30845
   912
wenzelm@30845
   913
  unify_trace_bound = 50 (formerly 25)
wenzelm@30845
   914
  unify_search_bound = 60 (formerly 30)
wenzelm@30845
   915
wenzelm@30845
   916
* Different bookkeeping for code equations (INCOMPATIBILITY):
wenzelm@30845
   917
wenzelm@30845
   918
  a) On theory merge, the last set of code equations for a particular
wenzelm@30845
   919
     constant is taken (in accordance with the policy applied by other
wenzelm@30845
   920
     parts of the code generator framework).
wenzelm@30845
   921
wenzelm@30845
   922
  b) Code equations stemming from explicit declarations (e.g. code
wenzelm@30845
   923
     attribute) gain priority over default code equations stemming
wenzelm@30845
   924
     from definition, primrec, fun etc.
wenzelm@30845
   925
wenzelm@30845
   926
* Keyword 'code_exception' now named 'code_abort'.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   927
haftmann@30965
   928
* Unified theorem tables for both code generators.  Thus [code
wenzelm@30845
   929
func] has disappeared and only [code] remains.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30577
   930
wenzelm@30577
   931
* Command 'find_consts' searches for constants based on type and name
wenzelm@30577
   932
patterns, e.g.
kleing@29883
   933
kleing@29883
   934
    find_consts "_ => bool"
kleing@29883
   935
wenzelm@30106
   936
By default, matching is against subtypes, but it may be restricted to
wenzelm@30728
   937
the whole type.  Searching by name is possible.  Multiple queries are
wenzelm@30106
   938
conjunctive and queries may be negated by prefixing them with a
wenzelm@30106
   939
hyphen:
kleing@29883
   940
kleing@29883
   941
    find_consts strict: "_ => bool" name: "Int" -"int => int"
kleing@29861
   942
wenzelm@30845
   943
* New 'find_theorems' criterion "solves" matches theorems that
wenzelm@30845
   944
directly solve the current goal (modulo higher-order unification).
wenzelm@30845
   945
wenzelm@30845
   946
* Auto solve feature for main theorem statements: whenever a new goal
wenzelm@30845
   947
is stated, "find_theorems solves" is called; any theorems that could
wenzelm@30845
   948
solve the lemma directly are listed as part of the goal state.
wenzelm@30845
   949
Cf. associated options in Proof General Isabelle settings menu,
wenzelm@30845
   950
enabled by default, with reasonable timeout for pathological cases of
wenzelm@30845
   951
higher-order unification.

*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@27381
   955
wenzelm@27381
   956
* Antiquotation @{lemma} now imitates a regular terminal proof,
wenzelm@27392
   957
demanding keyword 'by' and supporting the full method expression
wenzelm@27519
   958
syntax just like the Isar command 'by'.

*** HOL ***
haftmann@27104
   962
wenzelm@30845
   963
* Integrated main parts of former image HOL-Complex with HOL.  Entry
wenzelm@30845
   964
points Main and Complex_Main remain as before.
wenzelm@30845
   965
wenzelm@30845
   966
* Logic image HOL-Plain provides a minimal HOL with the most important
wenzelm@30845
   967
tools available (inductive, datatype, primrec, ...).  This facilitates
wenzelm@30845
   968
experimentation and tool development.  Note that user applications
wenzelm@30845
   969
(and library theories) should never refer to anything below theory
wenzelm@30845
   970
Main, as before.
wenzelm@30845
   971
wenzelm@30845
   972
* Logic image HOL-Main stops at theory Main, and thus facilitates
wenzelm@30845
   973
experimentation due to shorter build times.
wenzelm@30845
   974
wenzelm@30845
   975
* Logic image HOL-NSA contains theories of nonstandard analysis which
wenzelm@30845
   976
were previously part of former HOL-Complex.  Entry point Hyperreal
wenzelm@30845
   977
remains valid, but theories formerly using Complex_Main should now use
wenzelm@30845
   978
new entry point Hypercomplex.
wenzelm@30845
   979
wenzelm@30845
   980
* Generic ATP manager for Sledgehammer, based on ML threads instead of
wenzelm@30845
   981
Posix processes.  Avoids potentially expensive forking of the ML
wenzelm@30845
   982
process.  New thread-based implementation also works on non-Unix
wenzelm@30845
   983
platforms (Cygwin).  Provers are no longer hardwired, but defined
wenzelm@30845
   984
within the theory via plain ML wrapper functions.  Basic Sledgehammer
wenzelm@30845
   985
commands are covered in the isar-ref manual.
wenzelm@30845
   986
wenzelm@30845
   987
* Wrapper scripts for remote SystemOnTPTP service allows to use
wenzelm@30845
   988
sledgehammer without local ATP installation (Vampire etc.). Other
wenzelm@30845
   989
provers may be included via suitable ML wrappers, see also
wenzelm@30845
   990
src/HOL/ATP_Linkup.thy.
wenzelm@30845
   991
wenzelm@30845
   992
* ATP selection (E/Vampire/Spass) is now via Proof General's settings
wenzelm@30845
   993
menu.
wenzelm@30845
   994
wenzelm@30845
   995
* The metis method no longer fails because the theorem is too trivial
wenzelm@30845
   996
(contains the empty clause).
wenzelm@30845
   997
wenzelm@30845
   998
* The metis method now fails in the usual manner, rather than raising
wenzelm@30845
   999
an exception, if it determines that it cannot prove the theorem.
wenzelm@30845
  1000
wenzelm@30845
  1001
* Method "coherent" implements a prover for coherent logic (see also
wenzelm@30845
  1002
src/Tools/coherent.ML).
wenzelm@30845
  1003
wenzelm@30845
  1004
* Constants "undefined" and "default" replace "arbitrary".  Usually
wenzelm@30845
  1005
"undefined" is the right choice to replace "arbitrary", though
wenzelm@30845
  1006
logically there is no difference.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
  1007
wenzelm@30845
  1008
* Command "value" now integrates different evaluation mechanisms.  The
wenzelm@30845
  1009
result of the first successful evaluation mechanism is printed.  In
wenzelm@30845
  1010
square brackets a particular named evaluation mechanisms may be
wenzelm@30845
  1011
specified (currently, [SML], [code] or [nbe]).  See further
wenzelm@30845
  1012
src/HOL/ex/Eval_Examples.thy.
wenzelm@30845
  1013
wenzelm@30845
  1014
* Normalization by evaluation now allows non-leftlinear equations.
wenzelm@30845
  1015
Declare with attribute [code nbe].
wenzelm@30845
  1016
wenzelm@30845
  1017
* Methods "case_tac" and "induct_tac" now refer to the very same rules
wenzelm@30845
  1018
as the structured Isar versions "cases" and "induct", cf. the
wenzelm@30845
  1019
corresponding "cases" and "induct" attributes.  Mutual induction rules
wenzelm@30845
  1020
are now presented as a list of individual projections
wenzelm@30845
  1021
(e.g. foo_bar.inducts for types foo and bar); the old format with
wenzelm@30845
  1022
explicit HOL conjunction is no longer supported.  INCOMPATIBILITY, in
wenzelm@30845
  1023
rare situations a different rule is selected --- notably nested tuple
wenzelm@30845
  1024
elimination instead of former prod.exhaust: use explicit (case_tac t
wenzelm@30845
  1025
rule: prod.exhaust) here.
wenzelm@30845
  1026
wenzelm@30845
  1027
* Attributes "cases", "induct", "coinduct" support "del" option.
wenzelm@30845
  1028
wenzelm@30845
  1029
* Removed fact "case_split_thm", which duplicates "case_split".
wenzelm@30845
  1030
wenzelm@30845
  1031
* The option datatype has been moved to a new theory Option.  Renamed
wenzelm@30845
  1032
option_map to Option.map, and o2s to Option.set, INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
  1033
wenzelm@30845
  1034
* New predicate "strict_mono" classifies strict functions on partial
wenzelm@30845
  1035
orders.  With strict functions on linear orders, reasoning about
wenzelm@30845
  1036
(in)equalities is facilitated by theorems "strict_mono_eq",
wenzelm@30845
  1037
"strict_mono_less_eq" and "strict_mono_less".
wenzelm@30845
  1038
wenzelm@30845
  1039
* Some set operations are now proper qualified constants with
wenzelm@30845
  1040
authentic syntax.  INCOMPATIBILITY:
haftmann@30304
  1041
haftmann@30304

variable occurs at most once in let expression body.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
  1139
wenzelm@30845

fast_arith_neq_limit is exceeded, instead of giving up entirely.
wenzelm@30845
  1142
wenzelm@30845

induction rule "less_induct" as assumption.  For instantiation of
wenzelm@30845
  1161
"wellorder" by means of predicate "wf", use rule wf_wellorderI.
wenzelm@30845
  1162
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
  1163
wenzelm@30845
  1164
* Theory Orderings: added class "preorder" as superclass of "order".
wenzelm@27793
  1165
INCOMPATIBILITY: Instantiation proofs for order, linorder
wenzelm@27793
  1166
etc. slightly changed.  Some theorems named order_class.* now named
wenzelm@27793
  1167
preorder_class.*.
wenzelm@27793
  1168
wenzelm@30845
  1169
* Theory Relation: renamed "refl" to "refl_on", "reflexive" to "refl,
wenzelm@30845
  1170
"diag" to "Id_on".
wenzelm@30845
  1171
wenzelm@30845

  ('a => 'b => 'b) => 'b => 'a set => 'b
wenzelm@30845
  1175
wenzelm@30845
  1176
Occasionally this is more convenient than the old fold combinator
wenzelm@30845
  1177
which is now defined in terms of the new one and renamed to
wenzelm@30845
  1178
fold_image.
wenzelm@30845

wenzelm@30845
  1180
* Theories Ring_and_Field and OrderedGroup: The lemmas "group_simps"
wenzelm@30845
  1181
and "ring_simps" have been replaced by "algebra_simps" (which can be
wenzelm@30845
  1182
extended with further lemmas!).  At the moment both still exist but
wenzelm@30845
  1183
the former will disappear at some point.
wenzelm@30845
  1184
wenzelm@30845
  1185
* Theory Power: Lemma power_Suc is now declared as a simp rule in
wenzelm@30845
  1186
class recpower.  Type-specific simp rules for various recpower types
wenzelm@30845
  1187
have been removed.  INCOMPATIBILITY, rename old lemmas as follows:

* Theories Ring_and_Field and Divides: Definition of "op dvd" has been
wenzelm@27793
  1199
moved to separate class dvd in Ring_and_Field; a couple of lemmas on
wenzelm@27793
  1200
dvd has been generalized to class comm_semiring_1.  Likewise a bunch
wenzelm@27793
  1201
of lemmas from Divides has been generalized from nat to class
wenzelm@27793
  1202
semiring_div.  INCOMPATIBILITY.  This involves the following theorem

* High-level support for concurrent ML programming, see

  1421
src/Pure/Cuncurrent.  The data-oriented model of "future values" is
wenzelm@29161
  1422
particularly convenient to organize independent functional
wenzelm@29161
  1423
computations.  The concept of "synchronized variables" provides a
wenzelm@29161
  1424
higher-order interface for components with shared state, avoiding the
wenzelm@30845
  1425
delicate details of mutexes and condition variables.  (Requires

wenzelm@30845

* ML bindings produced via Isar commands are stored within the Isar
wenzelm@30845
  1429
context (theory or proof).  Consequently, commands like 'use' and 'ML'
wenzelm@30845
  1430
become thread-safe and work with undo as expected (concerning
wenzelm@30845
  1431
top-level bindings, not side-effects on global references).
wenzelm@30845
  1432
INCOMPATIBILITY, need to provide proper Isar context when invoking the

wenzelm@30845
  1436
* Command 'ML_prf' is analogous to 'ML' but works within a proof
wenzelm@30845

context.  Top-level ML bindings are stored within the proof context in
wenzelm@30845
  1438
a purely sequential fashion, disregarding the nested proof structure.
wenzelm@30845
  1439
ML bindings introduced by 'ML_prf' are discarded at the end of the

wenzelm@29161
  1441
wenzelm@30530

wenzelm@30845
  1443
and Method.setup, as well as Isar commands 'attribute_setup' and
wenzelm@30547
  1444
'method_setup'.  INCOMPATIBILITY for 'method_setup', need to simplify
wenzelm@30547

* Simplified ML oracle interface Thm.add_oracle promotes 'a -> cterm
wenzelm@28294
  1449
to 'a -> thm, while results are always tagged with an authentic oracle
wenzelm@28294
  1450
name.  The Isar command 'oracle' is now polymorphic, no argument type
wenzelm@28294
  1451
is specified.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to simplify existing oracle code
wenzelm@28294

wenzelm@30395
  1461
* More systematic treatment of long names, abstract name bindings, and

  1463
move from structure NameSpace to Long_Name, e.g. Long_Name.base_name,
wenzelm@30395
  1464
Long_Name.append.  Old type bstring has been mostly replaced by
wenzelm@30395
  1465
abstract type binding (see structure Binding), which supports precise
wenzelm@30845
  1466
qualification by packages and local theory targets, as well as proper
wenzelm@30845
  1467
tracking of source positions.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to wrap old
wenzelm@30845

wenzelm@30845
  1490

* Theory loader: use_thy (and similar operations) no longer set the
wenzelm@25994
  1546
implicit ML context, which was occasionally hard to predict and in
wenzelm@25994
  1547
conflict with concurrency.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use ML within Isar which
wenzelm@25994
  1548
provides a proper context already.

'use' within a theory file will do the job.
wenzelm@26323

* Name space merge now observes canonical order, i.e. the second space
wenzelm@26650

is inserted into the first one, while existing entries in the first
wenzelm@26659
  1556
space take precedence.  INCOMPATIBILITY in rare situations, may try to

  1563
which was an accidental (undocumented) feature.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use

* Unused theorems can be found using the new command 'unused_thms'.
berghofe@26681
  1577
There are three ways of invoking it:
berghofe@26681
  1578
berghofe@26681
  1579
(1) unused_thms
berghofe@26681
  1580
     Only finds unused theorems in the current theory.
berghofe@26681
  1581
berghofe@26681
  1582
(2) unused_thms thy_1 ... thy_n -
berghofe@26681
  1583
     Finds unused theorems in the current theory and all of its ancestors,
berghofe@26681
  1584
     excluding the theories thy_1 ... thy_n and all of their ancestors.
berghofe@26681
  1585
berghofe@26681
  1586
(3) unused_thms thy_1 ... thy_n - thy'_1 ... thy'_m
berghofe@26681
  1587
     Finds unused theorems in the theories thy'_1 ... thy'_m and all of
berghofe@26681
  1588
     their ancestors, excluding the theories thy_1 ... thy_n and all of
berghofe@26681
  1589
     their ancestors.
berghofe@26681
  1590
wenzelm@26718
  1591
In order to increase the readability of the list produced by
wenzelm@26718
  1592
unused_thms, theorems that have been created by a particular instance
wenzelm@26874
  1593
of a theory command such as 'inductive' or 'function' are considered
wenzelm@26874
  1594
to belong to the same "group", meaning that if at least one theorem in
wenzelm@26718
  1595
this group is used, the other theorems in the same group are no longer
wenzelm@26718
  1596
reported as unused.  Moreover, if all theorems in the group are
wenzelm@26718
  1597
unused, only one theorem in the group is displayed.
wenzelm@26718
  1598
wenzelm@26718
  1599
Note that proof objects have to be switched on in order for
wenzelm@26718
  1600
unused_thms to work properly (i.e. !proofs must be >= 1, which is
wenzelm@26874
  1601
usually the case when using Proof General with the default settings).

  1603
* Authentic naming of facts disallows ad-hoc overwriting of previous
wenzelm@26650
  1604
theorems within the same name space.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to remove
wenzelm@26650
  1605
duplicate fact bindings, or even accidental fact duplications.  Note
wenzelm@26650
  1606
that tools may maintain dynamically scoped facts systematically, using
wenzelm@26650
  1607
PureThy.add_thms_dynamic.
wenzelm@26650
  1608
wenzelm@26660

* Command 'hide' now allows to hide from "fact" name space as well.
wenzelm@26660
  1610
wenzelm@26496

wenzelm@26955
  1615
* Eliminated theory ProtoPure and CPure, leaving just one Pure theory.
wenzelm@26955
  1616
INCOMPATIBILITY, object-logics depending on former Pure require
wenzelm@26955
  1617
additional setup PureThy.old_appl_syntax_setup; object-logics
wenzelm@26955
  1618
depending on former CPure need to refer to Pure.
wenzelm@26650
  1619
wenzelm@26495
  1620
* Commands 'use' and 'ML' are now purely functional, operating on
wenzelm@26479
  1621
theory/local_theory.  Removed former 'ML_setup' (on theory), use 'ML'
wenzelm@26479
  1622
instead.  Added 'ML_val' as mere diagnostic replacement for 'ML'.
wenzelm@26479
  1623
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@26479
  1624
wenzelm@26874

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

* Instantiation target allows for simultaneous specification of class
wenzelm@25970

Type-checking phase allows to refer to class operations uniformly.

  1637
situations.
wenzelm@26201
  1638
wenzelm@26925
  1639
* Method "cases", "induct", "coinduct": removed obsolete/undocumented
wenzelm@26925
  1640
"(open)" option, which used to expose internal bound variables to the
wenzelm@26925

proof text.
wenzelm@26925
  1642
wenzelm@26925
  1643
* Isar statements: removed obsolete case "rule_context".
wenzelm@26925
  1644
INCOMPATIBILITY, better use explicit fixes/assumes.
wenzelm@26925
  1645
wenzelm@26874
  1646
* Locale proofs: default proof step now includes 'unfold_locales';
wenzelm@26874
  1647
hence 'proof' without argument may be used to unfold locale
wenzelm@26874
  1648

both pdf and dvi (hyperlinks usually work in xdvi as well); removed
wenzelm@26914
  1655
obsolete thumbpdf setup (contemporary PDF viewers do this on the

out some operations that are done internally by the function package

* More flexible generation of measure functions for termination
wenzelm@27067
  1693
proofs: Measure functions can be declared by proving a rule of the
wenzelm@27067
  1694
form "is_measure f" and giving it the [measure_function] attribute.
wenzelm@27067
  1695
The "is_measure" predicate is logically meaningless (always true), and
wenzelm@27067
  1696
just guides the heuristic.  To find suitable measure functions, the
wenzelm@27067
  1697
termination prover sets up the goal "is_measure ?f" of the appropriate
wenzelm@27067
  1698
type and generates all solutions by prolog-style backwards proof using
wenzelm@27067
  1699
the declared rules.
wenzelm@27067
  1700
wenzelm@27067
  1701
This setup also deals with rules like 
wenzelm@27067
  1702
wenzelm@27067
  1703
  "is_measure f ==> is_measure (list_size f)"
wenzelm@27067
  1704
wenzelm@27067
  1705
which accommodates nested datatypes that recurse through lists.

* Theory Nat: definition of <= and < on natural numbers no longer
wenzelm@26180
  1824
depend on well-founded relations.  INCOMPATIBILITY.  Definitions
wenzelm@26180

* Theory Finite_Set: locales ACf, ACe, ACIf, ACIfSL and ACIfSLlin
wenzelm@26180
  1829

wenzelm@26180
  1837
wenzelm@26180

  1844
wenzelm@26180
  1845
* Class semiring_div provides basic abstract properties of semirings

  1846
with division and modulo operations.  Subsumes former class dvd_mod.
haftmann@25942
  1847
wenzelm@26180

  1852
numbers rather than integers.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@26180
  1853
wenzelm@26180
  1854
* New class "uminus" with operation "uminus" (split of from class
wenzelm@26180

wenzelm@25464
  1867
schirmer@25705
  1868
* Records. Removed K_record, and replaced it by pure lambda term
wenzelm@25726
  1869
%x. c. The simplifier setup is now more robust against eta expansion.
schirmer@25705
  1870
INCOMPATIBILITY: in cases explicitly referring to K_record.
wenzelm@25464
  1871
wenzelm@27067

* Library/Multiset: {#a, b, c#} abbreviates {#a#} + {#b#} + {#c#}.
wenzelm@27067
  1873
wenzelm@27067
  1874
* Library/ListVector: new theory of arithmetic vector operations.
wenzelm@27067
  1875
wenzelm@27067
  1876
* Library/Order_Relation: new theory of various orderings as sets of

*** ML ***
wenzelm@25737
  1900
wenzelm@27067
  1901
* ML within Isar: antiquotation @{const name} or @{const
wenzelm@27067
  1902
name(typargs)} produces statically-checked Const term.
wenzelm@27067
  1903
wenzelm@26401
  1904
* Functor NamedThmsFun: data is available to the user as dynamic fact
wenzelm@26724
  1905
(of the same name).  Removed obsolete print command.
wenzelm@26401
  1906
wenzelm@27067
  1907
* Removed obsolete "use_legacy_bindings" function.
wenzelm@26188
  1908
wenzelm@25737
  1909
* The ``print mode'' is now a thread-local value derived from a global
wenzelm@25737
  1910
template (the former print_mode reference), thus access becomes
wenzelm@25737
  1911
non-critical.  The global print_mode reference is for session
wenzelm@25737
  1912
management only; user-code should use print_mode_value,
wenzelm@25737
  1913
print_mode_active, PrintMode.setmp etc.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@25737
  1914
wenzelm@26874
  1915
* Functions system/system_out provide a robust way to invoke external
wenzelm@29161
  1916
shell commands, with propagation of interrupts (requires Poly/ML
wenzelm@29161
  1917
5.2.1).  Do not use OS.Process.system etc. from the basis library!

in accordance with Proof General 3.7, which prefers GNU emacs.
wenzelm@25970
  1924
wenzelm@25626

setting, the default settings attempt to locate "ledit" and "rlwrap".
wenzelm@25626
  1928
wenzelm@25651
  1929

  1930
"javapath" function defined in Isabelle process environment.
wenzelm@25651
  1931
wenzelm@27067
  1932
* YXML notation provides a simple and efficient alternative to
wenzelm@27067
  1933
standard XML transfer syntax.  See src/Pure/General/yxml.ML and
wenzelm@27067
  1934
isatool yxml as described in the Isabelle system manual.
wenzelm@25651
  1935
wenzelm@25652
  1936
* JVM class isabelle.IsabelleProcess (located in Isabelle/lib/classes)
wenzelm@25651
  1937
provides general wrapper for managing an Isabelle process in a robust
wenzelm@25651
  1938
fashion, with ``cooked'' output from stdin/stderr.
wenzelm@25651
  1939
wenzelm@25855
  1940
* Rudimentary Isabelle plugin for jEdit (see Isabelle/lib/jedit),
wenzelm@25855
  1941
based on Isabelle/JVM process wrapper (see Isabelle/lib/classes).
wenzelm@25855
  1942
wenzelm@27067
  1943
* Removed obsolete THIS_IS_ISABELLE_BUILD feature.  NB: the documented
wenzelm@27067
  1944
way of changing the user's settings is via
wenzelm@27067
  1945
ISABELLE_HOME_USER/etc/settings, which is a fully featured bash
wenzelm@27067
  1946
script.
wenzelm@27067
  1947
wenzelm@27067
  1948
* Multithreading.max_threads := 0 refers to the number of actual CPU
wenzelm@27067
  1949
cores of the underlying machine, which is a good starting point for
wenzelm@27067
  1950
optimal performance tuning.  The corresponding usedir option -M allows
wenzelm@27067
  1951
"max" as an alias for "0".  WARNING: does not work on certain versions
wenzelm@27067
  1952
of Mac OS (with Poly/ML 5.1).
wenzelm@27067
  1953
wenzelm@27067
  1954
* isabelle-process: non-ML sessions are run with "nice", to reduce the
wenzelm@27067
  1955
adverse effect of Isabelle flooding interactive front-ends (notably

wenzelm@17754
  1963
*** General ***
wenzelm@17754
  1964
wenzelm@22826
  1965
* More uniform information about legacy features, notably a
wenzelm@22826
  1966
warning/error of "Legacy feature: ...", depending on the state of the
wenzelm@23367
  1967
tolerate_legacy_features flag (default true). FUTURE INCOMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@23367
  1968
legacy features will disappear eventually.
wenzelm@22826
  1969
wenzelm@17918
  1970
* Theory syntax: the header format ``theory A = B + C:'' has been
wenzelm@17918
  1971
discontinued in favour of ``theory A imports B C begin''.  Use isatool
wenzelm@17918
  1972
fixheaders to convert existing theory files.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17918
  1973
wenzelm@17918
  1974
* Theory syntax: the old non-Isar theory file format has been
wenzelm@17918
  1975
discontinued altogether.  Note that ML proof scripts may still be used
wenzelm@17918
  1976
with Isar theories; migration is usually quite simple with the ML
wenzelm@17918
  1977
function use_legacy_bindings.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17918
  1978
wenzelm@22871
  1979
* Theory syntax: some popular names (e.g. 'class', 'declaration',
wenzelm@22871
  1980
'fun', 'help', 'if') are now keywords.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use double
wenzelm@22871
  1981
quotes.
wenzelm@19814
  1982
wenzelm@23888
  1983
* Theory loader: be more serious about observing the static theory
wenzelm@23888
  1984
header specifications (including optional directories), but not the
wenzelm@24172
  1985
accidental file locations of previously successful loads.  The strict
wenzelm@24172
  1986
update policy of former update_thy is now already performed by
wenzelm@24172
  1987
use_thy, so the former has been removed; use_thys updates several
wenzelm@24172
  1988
theories simultaneously, just as 'imports' within a theory header
wenzelm@24172
  1989
specification, but without merging the results.  Potential
wenzelm@24172
  1990
INCOMPATIBILITY: may need to refine theory headers and commands
wenzelm@24172
  1991
ROOT.ML which depend on load order.
wenzelm@23888
  1992
wenzelm@23888
  1993
* Theory loader: optional support for content-based file
wenzelm@23888
  1994
identification, instead of the traditional scheme of full physical
wenzelm@23889
  1995
path plus date stamp; configured by the ISABELLE_FILE_IDENT setting
wenzelm@23888
  1996
(cf. the system manual).  The new scheme allows to work with
wenzelm@23888
  1997
non-finished theories in persistent session images, such that source
wenzelm@23888
  1998
files may be moved later on without requiring reloads.
wenzelm@23888
  1999
wenzelm@24187
  2000
* Theory loader: old-style ML proof scripts being *attached* to a thy
wenzelm@24187
  2001
file (with the same base name as the theory) are considered a legacy
wenzelm@24800
  2002
feature, which will disappear eventually. Even now, the theory loader
wenzelm@24800
  2003
no longer maintains dependencies on such files.
wenzelm@24800
  2004
wenzelm@24800
  2005
* Syntax: the scope for resolving ambiguities via type-inference is
wenzelm@24800
  2006
now limited to individual terms, instead of whole simultaneous
wenzelm@24234
  2007
specifications as before. This greatly reduces the complexity of the
wenzelm@24234
  2008
syntax module and improves flexibility by separating parsing and
wenzelm@24234
  2009
type-checking. INCOMPATIBILITY: additional type-constraints (explicit
wenzelm@24234
  2010
'fixes' etc.) are required in rare situations.
wenzelm@24234
  2011
wenzelm@25034
  2012
* Syntax: constants introduced by new-style packages ('definition',
wenzelm@25034
  2013
'abbreviation' etc.) are passed through the syntax module in
wenzelm@25034
  2014
``authentic mode''. This means that associated mixfix annotations
wenzelm@25034
  2015
really stick to such constants, independently of potential name space
wenzelm@25034
  2016
ambiguities introduced later on. INCOMPATIBILITY: constants in parse
wenzelm@25034
  2017
trees are represented slightly differently, may need to adapt syntax
wenzelm@25034
  2018
translations accordingly. Use CONST marker in 'translations' and
wenzelm@25034
  2019
@{const_syntax} antiquotation in 'parse_translation' etc.
wenzelm@25034
  2020
wenzelm@17981
  2021
* Legacy goal package: reduced interface to the bare minimum required
wenzelm@17981
  2022
to keep existing proof scripts running.  Most other user-level
wenzelm@17981
  2023
functions are now part of the OldGoals structure, which is *not* open
wenzelm@17981
  2024
by default (consider isatool expandshort before open OldGoals).
wenzelm@17981
  2025
Removed top_sg, prin, printyp, pprint_term/typ altogether, because
wenzelm@17981
  2026
these tend to cause confusion about the actual goal (!) context being
wenzelm@17981
  2027
used here, which is not necessarily the same as the_context().
wenzelm@17918
  2028
wenzelm@23379
  2029
* Command 'find_theorems': supports "*" wild-card in "name:"
wenzelm@23379
  2030
criterion; "with_dups" option.  Certain ProofGeneral versions might
wenzelm@23379
  2031
support a specific search form (see ProofGeneral/CHANGES).
webertj@22965
  2032
wenzelm@20370
  2033
* The ``prems limit'' option (cf. ProofContext.prems_limit) is now -1
wenzelm@20370
  2034
by default, which means that "prems" (and also "fixed variables") are
wenzelm@20370
  2035
suppressed from proof state output.  Note that the ProofGeneral
wenzelm@20370
  2036
settings mechanism allows to change and save options persistently, but
wenzelm@20370
  2037
older versions of Isabelle will fail to start up if a negative prems
wenzelm@20370
  2038
limit is imposed.
wenzelm@20370
  2039
wenzelm@21308
  2040
* Local theory targets may be specified by non-nested blocks of
wenzelm@21308
  2041
``context/locale/class ... begin'' followed by ``end''.  The body may
wenzelm@21308
  2042
contain definitions, theorems etc., including any derived mechanism
wenzelm@21308
  2043
that has been implemented on top of these primitives.  This concept
wenzelm@21308
  2044
generalizes the existing ``theorem (in ...)'' towards more versatility
wenzelm@21308
  2045
and scalability.
wenzelm@21308
  2046
wenzelm@21960
  2047
* Proof General interface: proper undo of final 'end' command;
wenzelm@21960
  2048
discontinued Isabelle/classic mode (ML proof scripts).

*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@17865
  2052
wenzelm@21717
  2053
* Added antiquotation @{theory name} which prints the given name,
wenzelm@21717
  2054
after checking that it refers to a valid ancestor theory in the
wenzelm@21717
  2055
current context.
haftmann@21339
  2056
wenzelm@17869
  2057
* Added antiquotations @{ML_type text} and @{ML_struct text} which
wenzelm@17869
  2058
check the given source text as ML type/structure, printing verbatim.
wenzelm@17865
  2059
wenzelm@21717
  2060
* Added antiquotation @{abbrev "c args"} which prints the abbreviation
wenzelm@21717
  2061
"c args == rhs" given in the current context.  (Any number of
wenzelm@21735
  2062
arguments may be given on the LHS.)

  2067
* The 'class' package offers a combination of axclass and locale to
wenzelm@25129
  2068
achieve Haskell-like type classes in Isabelle.  Definitions and
wenzelm@25129
  2069
theorems within a class context produce both relative results (with
wenzelm@25129
  2070
implicit parameters according to the locale context), and polymorphic
wenzelm@25129
  2071
constants with qualified polymorphism (according to the class
wenzelm@25129
  2072
context).  Within the body context of a 'class' target, a separate
wenzelm@25129
  2073
syntax layer ("user space type system") takes care of converting
wenzelm@25129
  2074
between global polymorphic consts and internal locale representation.

* Code generator: consts in 'consts_code' Isar commands are now
wenzelm@25129
  2127
referred to by usual term syntax (including optional type
wenzelm@25129
  2128
annotations).
wenzelm@25129
  2129
wenzelm@19254
  2130
* Command 'no_translations' removes translation rules from theory
wenzelm@19254
  2131
syntax.
wenzelm@19254
  2132
wenzelm@19625
  2133
* Overloaded definitions are now actually checked for acyclic
wenzelm@19714
  2134
dependencies.  The overloading scheme is slightly more general than
wenzelm@19714
  2135
that of Haskell98, although Isabelle does not demand an exact
wenzelm@19714
  2136
correspondence to type class and instance declarations.
wenzelm@19714
  2137
INCOMPATIBILITY, use ``defs (unchecked overloaded)'' to admit more
wenzelm@19714
  2138
exotic versions of overloading -- at the discretion of the user!
wenzelm@19711
  2139
wenzelm@19711
  2140
Polymorphic constants are represented via type arguments, i.e. the
wenzelm@19711
  2141
instantiation that matches an instance against the most general
wenzelm@19711
  2142
declaration given in the signature.  For example, with the declaration
wenzelm@19711
  2143
c :: 'a => 'a => 'a, an instance c :: nat => nat => nat is represented
wenzelm@19711
  2144
as c(nat).  Overloading is essentially simultaneous structural
wenzelm@19711
  2145
recursion over such type arguments.  Incomplete specification patterns
wenzelm@19714
  2146
impose global constraints on all occurrences, e.g. c('a * 'a) on the
wenzelm@19715
  2147
LHS means that more general c('a * 'b) will be disallowed on any RHS.
wenzelm@19714
  2148
Command 'print_theory' outputs the normalized system of recursive
wenzelm@19714
  2149
equations, see section "definitions".

wenzelm@24086
  2151
* Configuration options are maintained within the theory or proof
wenzelm@24086
  2152
context (with name and type bool/int/string), providing a very simple
wenzelm@24086
  2153
interface to a poor-man's version of general context data.  Tools may
wenzelm@24110
  2154
declare options in ML (e.g. using Attrib.config_int) and then refer to
wenzelm@24110
  2155
these values using Config.get etc.  Users may change options via an
wenzelm@24110
  2156
associated attribute of the same name.  This form of context
wenzelm@24110
  2157
declaration works particularly well with commands 'declare' or
wenzelm@24110
  2158
'using', for example ``declare [[foo = 42]]''.  Thus it has become
wenzelm@24110
  2159
very easy to avoid global references, which would not observe Isar
wenzelm@24110
  2160
toplevel undo/redo and fail to work with multithreading.
wenzelm@24086
  2161
wenzelm@24172
  2162
Various global ML references of Pure and HOL have been turned into
wenzelm@24172
  2163
configuration options:

wenzelm@24086
  2175
* Named collections of theorems may be easily installed as context
wenzelm@24800
  2176
data using the functor NamedThmsFun (see also
wenzelm@24086
  2177
src/Pure/Tools/named_thms.ML).  The user may add or delete facts via
wenzelm@24110
  2178
attributes; there is also a toplevel print command.  This facility is
wenzelm@24110
  2179
just a common case of general context data, which is the preferred way
wenzelm@24110
  2180
for anything more complex than just a list of facts in canonical
wenzelm@24110
  2181
order.
wenzelm@24086
  2182
wenzelm@24032
  2183
* Isar: command 'declaration' augments a local theory by generic
wenzelm@24032
  2184
declaration functions written in ML.  This enables arbitrary content
wenzelm@24032
  2185
being added to the context, depending on a morphism that tells the
wenzelm@24032
  2186
difference of the original declaration context wrt. the application
wenzelm@24032
  2187
context encountered later on.
wenzelm@24032
  2188
wenzelm@24032
  2189
* Isar: proper interfaces for simplification procedures.  Command
wenzelm@24032
  2190
'simproc_setup' declares named simprocs (with match patterns, and body
wenzelm@24032
  2191
text in ML).  Attribute "simproc" adds/deletes simprocs in the current
wenzelm@24032
  2192
context.  ML antiquotation @{simproc name} retrieves named simprocs.
wenzelm@24032
  2193
wenzelm@24032
  2194
* Isar: an extra pair of brackets around attribute declarations
wenzelm@24032
  2195
abbreviates a theorem reference involving an internal dummy fact,
wenzelm@24032
  2196
which will be ignored later --- only the effect of the attribute on
wenzelm@24032
  2197
the background context will persist.  This form of in-place
wenzelm@24032
  2198
declarations is particularly useful with commands like 'declare' and
wenzelm@24032
  2199
'using', for example ``have A using [[simproc a]] by simp''.
wenzelm@24032
  2200
wenzelm@23369
  2201
* Isar: method "assumption" (and implicit closing of subproofs) now
wenzelm@23369
  2202
takes simple non-atomic goal assumptions into account: after applying
wenzelm@23369
  2203
an assumption as a rule the resulting subgoals are solved by atomic
wenzelm@23369
  2204
assumption steps.  This is particularly useful to finish 'obtain'
wenzelm@23369
  2205
goals, such as "!!x. (!!x. P x ==> thesis) ==> P x ==> thesis",
wenzelm@23369
  2206
without referring to the original premise "!!x. P x ==> thesis" in the
wenzelm@23369
  2207
Isar proof context.  POTENTIAL INCOMPATIBILITY: method "assumption" is
wenzelm@23369
  2208
more permissive.
wenzelm@23369
  2209
wenzelm@23369
  2210
* Isar: implicit use of prems from the Isar proof context is
wenzelm@23369
  2211
considered a legacy feature.  Common applications like ``have A .''
wenzelm@23369
  2212
may be replaced by ``have A by fact'' or ``note `A`''.  In general,
wenzelm@23369
  2213
referencing facts explicitly here improves readability and
wenzelm@23369
  2214
maintainability of proof texts.
wenzelm@23369
  2215
wenzelm@17865
  2216
* Isar: improper proof element 'guess' is like 'obtain', but derives
wenzelm@17865
  2217
the obtained context from the course of reasoning!  For example:
wenzelm@17865
  2218
wenzelm@17865
  2219
  assume "EX x y. A x & B y"   -- "any previous fact"
wenzelm@17865
  2220
  then guess x and y by clarify
wenzelm@17865
  2221
wenzelm@17865
  2222
This technique is potentially adventurous, depending on the facts and
wenzelm@17865
  2223
proof tools being involved here.
wenzelm@17865
  2224
wenzelm@18020
  2225
* Isar: known facts from the proof context may be specified as literal
wenzelm@18020
  2226
propositions, using ASCII back-quote syntax.  This works wherever
wenzelm@18020
  2227
named facts used to be allowed so far, in proof commands, proof
wenzelm@18020
  2228
methods, attributes etc.  Literal facts are retrieved from the context
wenzelm@18020
  2229
according to unification of type and term parameters.  For example,
wenzelm@18020
  2230
provided that "A" and "A ==> B" and "!!x. P x ==> Q x" are known
wenzelm@18020
  2231
theorems in the current context, then these are valid literal facts:
wenzelm@18020
  2232
`A` and `A ==> B` and `!!x. P x ==> Q x" as well as `P a ==> Q a` etc.
wenzelm@18020
  2233
wenzelm@18020
  2234
There is also a proof method "fact" which does the same composition
wenzelm@18044
  2235
for explicit goal states, e.g. the following proof texts coincide with
wenzelm@18044
  2236
certain special cases of literal facts:
wenzelm@18020
  2237
wenzelm@18020
  2238
  have "A" by fact                 ==  note `A`
wenzelm@18020
  2239
  have "A ==> B" by fact           ==  note `A ==> B`
wenzelm@18020
  2240
  have "!!x. P x ==> Q x" by fact  ==  note `!!x. P x ==> Q x`
wenzelm@18020
  2241
  have "P a ==> Q a" by fact       ==  note `P a ==> Q a`
wenzelm@18020
  2242
wenzelm@20118
  2243
* Isar: ":" (colon) is no longer a symbolic identifier character in
wenzelm@20118
  2244
outer syntax.  Thus symbolic identifiers may be used without
wenzelm@20118
  2245
additional white space in declarations like this: ``assume *: A''.
wenzelm@20118
  2246
wenzelm@20013
  2247
* Isar: 'print_facts' prints all local facts of the current context,
wenzelm@20013
  2248
both named and unnamed ones.
wenzelm@20013
  2249
wenzelm@18308
  2250
* Isar: 'def' now admits simultaneous definitions, e.g.:
wenzelm@18308
  2251
wenzelm@18308
  2252
  def x == "t" and y == "u"
wenzelm@18308
  2253
wenzelm@18540
  2254
* Isar: added command 'unfolding', which is structurally similar to
wenzelm@18540
  2255
'using', but affects both the goal state and facts by unfolding given
wenzelm@18815
  2256
rewrite rules.  Thus many occurrences of the 'unfold' method or
wenzelm@18540
  2257
'unfolded' attribute may be replaced by first-class proof text.
wenzelm@18540
  2258
wenzelm@18815
  2259
* Isar: methods 'unfold' / 'fold', attributes 'unfolded' / 'folded',
wenzelm@18815
  2260
and command 'unfolding' now all support object-level equalities
wenzelm@18815
  2261
(potentially conditional).  The underlying notion of rewrite rule is
wenzelm@18815
  2262
analogous to the 'rule_format' attribute, but *not* that of the
wenzelm@18815
  2263
Simplifier (which is usually more generous).
wenzelm@18815
  2264
kleing@24238
  2265
* Isar: the new attribute [rotated n] (default n = 1) rotates the
kleing@24238
  2266
premises of a theorem by n. Useful in conjunction with drule.
kleing@24238
  2267
wenzelm@19220
  2268
* Isar: the goal restriction operator [N] (default N = 1) evaluates a
wenzelm@19220
  2269
method expression within a sandbox consisting of the first N
wenzelm@19240
  2270
sub-goals, which need to exist.  For example, ``simp_all [3]''
wenzelm@19240
  2271
simplifies the first three sub-goals, while (rule foo, simp_all)[]
wenzelm@19240
  2272
simplifies all new goals that emerge from applying rule foo to the
wenzelm@19240
  2273
originally first one.
wenzelm@19220
  2274
wenzelm@19814
  2275
* Isar: schematic goals are no longer restricted to higher-order
wenzelm@19814
  2276
patterns; e.g. ``lemma "?P(?x)" by (rule TrueI)'' now works as
wenzelm@19814
  2277
expected.
wenzelm@19814
  2278
wenzelm@18901
  2279
* Isar: the conclusion of a long theorem statement is now either
wenzelm@18901
  2280
'shows' (a simultaneous conjunction, as before), or 'obtains'
wenzelm@18901
  2281
(essentially a disjunction of cases with local parameters and
wenzelm@18901
  2282
assumptions).  The latter allows to express general elimination rules
wenzelm@18910
  2283
adequately; in this notation common elimination rules look like this:
wenzelm@18901
  2284
wenzelm@18901
  2285
  lemma exE:    -- "EX x. P x ==> (!!x. P x ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  2286
    assumes "EX x. P x"
wenzelm@18901
  2287
    obtains x where "P x"
wenzelm@18901
  2288
wenzelm@18901
  2289
  lemma conjE:  -- "A & B ==> (A ==> B ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  2290
    assumes "A & B"
wenzelm@18901
  2291
    obtains A and B
wenzelm@18901
  2292
wenzelm@18901
  2293
  lemma disjE:  -- "A | B ==> (A ==> thesis) ==> (B ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  2294
    assumes "A | B"
wenzelm@18901
  2295
    obtains
wenzelm@18901
  2296
      A
wenzelm@18901
  2297
    | B
wenzelm@18901
  2298
wenzelm@18910
  2299
The subsequent classical rules even refer to the formal "thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  2300
explicitly:
wenzelm@18901
  2301
wenzelm@18901
  2302
  lemma classical:     -- "(~ thesis ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  2303
    obtains "~ thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  2304
wenzelm@18910
  2305
  lemma Peirce's_Law:  -- "((thesis ==> something) ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18910
  2306
    obtains "thesis ==> something"
wenzelm@18901
  2307
wenzelm@18901
  2308
The actual proof of an 'obtains' statement is analogous to that of the
wenzelm@18910
  2309
Isar proof element 'obtain', only that there may be several cases.
wenzelm@18910
  2310
Optional case names may be specified in parentheses; these will be
wenzelm@18910
  2311
available both in the present proof and as annotations in the
wenzelm@18910
  2312
resulting rule, for later use with the 'cases' method (cf. attribute
wenzelm@18910
  2313
case_names).
wenzelm@18901
  2314
wenzelm@21447
  2315
* Isar: the assumptions of a long theorem statement are available as
wenzelm@21447
  2316
"assms" fact in the proof context.  This is more appropriate than the
wenzelm@21447
  2317
(historical) "prems", which refers to all assumptions of the current
wenzelm@21447
  2318
context, including those from the target locale, proof body etc.
wenzelm@21447
  2319
wenzelm@19263
  2320
* Isar: 'print_statement' prints theorems from the current theory or
wenzelm@19263
  2321
proof context in long statement form, according to the syntax of a
wenzelm@19263
  2322
top-level lemma.
wenzelm@19263
  2323
wenzelm@18901
  2324
* Isar: 'obtain' takes an optional case name for the local context
wenzelm@18901
  2325
introduction rule (default "that").
wenzelm@18901
  2326
wenzelm@19587
  2327
* Isar: removed obsolete 'concl is' patterns.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use
wenzelm@19587
  2328
explicit (is "_ ==> ?foo") in the rare cases where this still happens
wenzelm@19587
  2329
to occur.
wenzelm@19587
  2330
wenzelm@19682
  2331
* Pure: syntax "CONST name" produces a fully internalized constant
wenzelm@19682
  2332
according to the current context.  This is particularly useful for
wenzelm@19682
  2333
syntax translations that should refer to internal constant
wenzelm@19682
  2334
representations independently of name spaces.
wenzelm@19682
  2335
wenzelm@21537
  2336
* Pure: syntax constant for foo (binder "FOO ") is called "foo_binder"
wenzelm@21537
  2337
instead of "FOO ". This allows multiple binder declarations to coexist
wenzelm@21537
  2338
in the same context.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@21537
  2339
wenzelm@21209
  2340
* Isar/locales: 'notation' provides a robust interface to the 'syntax'
wenzelm@21209
  2341
primitive that also works in a locale context (both for constants and
wenzelm@24950
  2342
fixed variables). Type declaration and internal syntactic representation
wenzelm@24950
  2343
of given constants retrieved from the context. Likewise, the
wenzelm@24950
  2344
'no_notation' command allows to remove given syntax annotations from the
wenzelm@24950
  2345
current context.
wenzelm@19682
  2346
wenzelm@19665
  2347
* Isar/locales: new derived specification elements 'axiomatization',
wenzelm@19665
  2348
'definition', 'abbreviation', which support type-inference, admit
wenzelm@19083
  2349
object-level specifications (equality, equivalence).  See also the
wenzelm@19083
  2350
isar-ref manual.  Examples:
wenzelm@19081
  2351
wenzelm@19665
  2352
  axiomatization
wenzelm@21595
  2353
    eq  (infix "===" 50) where
wenzelm@21595
  2354
    eq_refl: "x === x" and eq_subst: "x === y ==> P x ==> P y"
wenzelm@21595
  2355
wenzelm@21595
  2356
  definition "f x y = x + y + 1"
wenzelm@21595
  2357
  definition g where "g x = f x x"
wenzelm@19081
  2358
wenzelm@19363
  2359
  abbreviation
wenzelm@21595
  2360
    neq  (infix "=!=" 50) where
wenzelm@19363
  2361
    "x =!= y == ~ (x === y)"
wenzelm@19081
  2362
wenzelm@19083
  2363
These specifications may be also used in a locale context.  Then the
wenzelm@19083
  2364
constants being introduced depend on certain fixed parameters, and the
wenzelm@19083
  2365
constant name is qualified by the locale base name.  An internal
wenzelm@19083
  2366
abbreviation takes care for convenient input and output, making the
wenzelm@19088
  2367
parameters implicit and using the original short name.  See also
wenzelm@25177
  2368
src/HOL/ex/Abstract_NAT.thy for an example of deriving polymorphic
wenzelm@19083
  2369
entities from a monomorphic theory.
wenzelm@19083
  2370
wenzelm@19083
  2371
Presently, abbreviations are only available 'in' a target locale, but
wenzelm@19363
  2372
not inherited by general import expressions.  Also note that
wenzelm@19363
  2373
'abbreviation' may be used as a type-safe replacement for 'syntax' +
wenzelm@24735
  2374
'translations' in common applications.  The "no_abbrevs" print mode
wenzelm@24735
  2375
prevents folding of abbreviations in term output.
wenzelm@19084
  2376
wenzelm@19682
  2377
Concrete syntax is attached to specified constants in internal form,
wenzelm@19682
  2378
independently of name spaces.  The parse tree representation is
wenzelm@21209
  2379
slightly different -- use 'notation' instead of raw 'syntax', and
wenzelm@19682
  2380
'translations' with explicit "CONST" markup to accommodate this.
wenzelm@19665
  2381
wenzelm@24800
  2382
* Pure/Isar: unified syntax for new-style specification mechanisms
wenzelm@24800
  2383
(e.g.  'definition', 'abbreviation', or 'inductive' in HOL) admits
wenzelm@24800
  2384
full type inference and dummy patterns ("_").  For example:
wenzelm@24735
  2385
wenzelm@24735
  2386
  definition "K x _ = x"
wenzelm@24735
  2387
wenzelm@24738
  2388
  inductive conj for A B
wenzelm@24738
  2389
  where "A ==> B ==> conj A B"
wenzelm@24738
  2390
wenzelm@21735
  2391
* Pure: command 'print_abbrevs' prints all constant abbreviations of
wenzelm@21735
  2392
the current context.  Print mode "no_abbrevs" prevents inversion of
wenzelm@21735
  2393
abbreviations on output.
wenzelm@21735
  2394
wenzelm@24800
  2395
* Isar/locales: improved parameter handling: use of locales "var" and
wenzelm@24800
  2396
"struct" no longer necessary; - parameter renamings are no longer
wenzelm@24800
  2397
required to be injective.  For example, this allows to define
wenzelm@24800
  2398
endomorphisms as locale endom = homom mult mult h.
ballarin@19783
  2399
ballarin@19931
  2400
* Isar/locales: changed the way locales with predicates are defined.
ballarin@19931
  2401
Instead of accumulating the specification, the imported expression is
wenzelm@22126
  2402
now an interpretation.  INCOMPATIBILITY: different normal form of
wenzelm@22126
  2403
locale expressions.  In particular, in interpretations of locales with
wenzelm@22126
  2404
predicates, goals repesenting already interpreted fragments are not
wenzelm@22126
  2405
removed automatically.  Use methods `intro_locales' and
wenzelm@22126
  2406
`unfold_locales'; see below.
wenzelm@22126
  2407
wenzelm@22126
  2408
* Isar/locales: new methods `intro_locales' and `unfold_locales'
wenzelm@22126
  2409
provide backward reasoning on locales predicates.  The methods are
wenzelm@22126
  2410
aware of interpretations and discharge corresponding goals.
wenzelm@22126
  2411
`intro_locales' is less aggressive then `unfold_locales' and does not
wenzelm@22126
  2412
unfold predicates to assumptions.
ballarin@19931
  2413
ballarin@19931
  2414
* Isar/locales: the order in which locale fragments are accumulated
wenzelm@22126
  2415
has changed.  This enables to override declarations from fragments due
wenzelm@22126
  2416
to interpretations -- for example, unwanted simp rules.
ballarin@19931
  2417
ballarin@23920
  2418
* Isar/locales: interpretation in theories and proof contexts has been
ballarin@23920
  2419
extended.  One may now specify (and prove) equations, which are
ballarin@23920
  2420
unfolded in interpreted theorems.  This is useful for replacing
ballarin@23920
  2421
defined concepts (constants depending on locale parameters) by
ballarin@23920
  2422
concepts already existing in the target context.  Example:
ballarin@23920
  2423
ballarin@23920
  2424
  interpretation partial_order ["op <= :: [int, int] => bool"]
ballarin@23920
  2425
    where "partial_order.less (op <=) (x::int) y = (x < y)"
ballarin@23920
  2426
wenzelm@24800
  2427
Typically, the constant `partial_order.less' is created by a
wenzelm@24800
  2428
definition specification element in the context of locale
wenzelm@24800
  2429
partial_order.
wenzelm@24800
  2430
wenzelm@24859
  2431
* Method "induct": improved internal context management to support
wenzelm@24800
  2432
local fixes and defines on-the-fly. Thus explicit meta-level
wenzelm@24800
  2433
connectives !!  and ==> are rarely required anymore in inductive goals
wenzelm@24800
  2434
(using object-logic connectives for this purpose has been long
wenzelm@24800
  2435
obsolete anyway). Common proof patterns are explained in
wenzelm@25177
  2436
src/HOL/Induct/Common_Patterns.thy, see also
wenzelm@25177
  2437
src/HOL/Isar_examples/Puzzle.thy and src/HOL/Lambda for realistic
wenzelm@25177
  2438
examples.
wenzelm@24606
  2439
wenzelm@24859
  2440
* Method "induct": improved handling of simultaneous goals. Instead of
wenzelm@24606
  2441
introducing object-level conjunction, the statement is now split into
wenzelm@24606
  2442
several conclusions, while the corresponding symbolic cases are nested
wenzelm@24606
  2443
accordingly. INCOMPATIBILITY, proofs need to be structured explicitly,
wenzelm@25177
  2444
see src/HOL/Induct/Common_Patterns.thy, for example.
wenzelm@24606
  2445
wenzelm@24859
  2446
* Method "induct": mutual induction rules are now specified as a list
wenzelm@24800
  2447
of rule sharing the same induction cases. HOL packages usually provide
wenzelm@24606
  2448
foo_bar.inducts for mutually defined items foo and bar (e.g. inductive
wenzelm@24859
  2449
predicates/sets or datatypes). INCOMPATIBILITY, users need to specify
wenzelm@24859
  2450
mutual induction rules differently, i.e. like this:
wenzelm@18506
  2451
wenzelm@18506
  2452
  (induct rule: foo_bar.inducts)
wenzelm@18506
  2453
  (induct set: foo bar)
wenzelm@24859
  2454
  (induct pred: foo bar)
wenzelm@18506
  2455
  (induct type: foo bar)
wenzelm@18506
  2456
wenzelm@18506
  2457
The ML function ProjectRule.projections turns old-style rules into the
wenzelm@18506
  2458
new format.
wenzelm@18506
  2459
wenzelm@24859
  2460
* Method "coinduct": dual of induction, see
wenzelm@18399
  2461
src/HOL/Library/Coinductive_List.thy for various examples.
wenzelm@18399
  2462
wenzelm@24859
  2463
* Method "cases", "induct", "coinduct": the ``(open)'' option is
wenzelm@24859
  2464
considered a legacy feature.
wenzelm@24859
  2465
wenzelm@20919
  2466
* Attribute "symmetric" produces result with standardized schematic
wenzelm@20919
  2467
variables (index 0).  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@20919
  2468
wenzelm@22126
  2469
* Simplifier: by default the simplifier trace only shows top level
wenzelm@22126
  2470
rewrites now. That is, trace_simp_depth_limit is set to 1 by
wenzelm@22126
  2471
default. Thus there is less danger of being flooded by the trace. The
wenzelm@22126
  2472
trace indicates where parts have been suppressed.
nipkow@18674
  2473
  
wenzelm@18536
  2474
* Provers/classical: removed obsolete classical version of elim_format
wenzelm@18536
  2475
attribute; classical elim/dest rules are now treated uniformly when
wenzelm@18536
  2476
manipulating the claset.
wenzelm@18536
  2477
wenzelm@18694
  2478
* Provers/classical: stricter checks to ensure that supplied intro,
wenzelm@18694
  2479
dest and elim rules are well-formed; dest and elim rules must have at
wenzelm@18694
  2480
least one premise.
wenzelm@18694
  2481
wenzelm@18694
  2482
* Provers/classical: attributes dest/elim/intro take an optional
wenzelm@18695
  2483
weight argument for the rule (just as the Pure versions).  Weights are
wenzelm@18696
  2484
ignored by automated tools, but determine the search order of single
wenzelm@18694
  2485
rule steps.
paulson@18557
  2486
wenzelm@18536
  2487
* Syntax: input syntax now supports dummy variable binding "%_. b",
wenzelm@18536
  2488
where the body does not mention the bound variable.  Note that dummy
wenzelm@18536
  2489
patterns implicitly depend on their context of bounds, which makes
wenzelm@18536
  2490
"{_. _}" match any set comprehension as expected.  Potential
wenzelm@18536
  2491
INCOMPATIBILITY -- parse translations need to cope with syntactic
wenzelm@18536
  2492
constant "_idtdummy" in the binding position.
wenzelm@18536
  2493
wenzelm@18536
  2494
* Syntax: removed obsolete syntactic constant "_K" and its associated
wenzelm@18536
  2495
parse translation.  INCOMPATIBILITY -- use dummy abstraction instead,
wenzelm@18536
  2496
for example "A -> B" => "Pi A (%_. B)".
wenzelm@17779
  2497
wenzelm@20582
  2498
* Pure: 'class_deps' command visualizes the subclass relation, using
wenzelm@20582
  2499
the graph browser tool.
wenzelm@20582
  2500
wenzelm@24800
  2501
* Pure: 'print_theory' now suppresses certain internal declarations by
wenzelm@24800
  2502
default; use '!' option for full details.

* New constant "undefined" with axiom "undefined x = undefined".
haftmann@25184

  2554
INCOMPATIBILITY.  Adaptions may be required in the following cases:
haftmann@25184
  2555
haftmann@25184
  2556
a) User-defined constants using any of the names "plus", "minus",
haftmann@25184
  2557
"times", "less" or "less_eq". The standard syntax translations for
haftmann@25184
  2558
"+", "-" and "*" may go wrong.  INCOMPATIBILITY: use more specific
haftmann@25184
  2559
names.
haftmann@25184
  2560
haftmann@25184
  2561
b) Variables named "plus", "minus", "times", "less", "less_eq"
haftmann@25184
  2562
INCOMPATIBILITY: use more specific names.
haftmann@25184
  2563
haftmann@25184
  2564
c) Permutative equations (e.g. "a + b = b + a")
haftmann@25184
  2565
Since the change of names also changes the order of terms, permutative
haftmann@25184
  2566
rewrite rules may get applied in a different order. Experience shows
haftmann@25184
  2567
that this is rarely the case (only two adaptions in the whole Isabelle
haftmann@25184
  2568
distribution).  INCOMPATIBILITY: rewrite proofs
haftmann@25184
  2569
haftmann@25184
  2570
d) ML code directly refering to constant names
haftmann@25184
  2571
This in general only affects hand-written proof tactics, simprocs and
haftmann@25184
  2572
so on.  INCOMPATIBILITY: grep your sourcecode and replace names.
haftmann@25184
  2573
Consider using @{const_name} antiquotation.
haftmann@25184
  2574
haftmann@25184
  2575
* New class "default" with associated constant "default".
haftmann@25184

  2579
sgn are given as equational assumptions in the classes sgn_if and
haftmann@25184
  2580
sgn_div_norm; ordered_idom now also inherits from sgn_if.
haftmann@25184
  2581
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
  2582
haftmann@25184
  2583
* Locale "partial_order" now unified with class "order" (cf. theory
haftmann@25184
  2584
Orderings), added parameter "less".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
  2585
haftmann@25184
  2586
* Renamings in classes "order" and "linorder": facts "refl", "trans" and
haftmann@25184
  2587
"cases" to "order_refl", "order_trans" and "linorder_cases", to avoid
haftmann@25184
  2588
clashes with HOL "refl" and "trans".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
  2589
haftmann@25184
  2590
* Classes "order" and "linorder": potential INCOMPATIBILITY due to
haftmann@25184
  2591
changed order of proof goals in instance proofs.
haftmann@25184
  2592
haftmann@25184
  2593
* The transitivity reasoner for partial and linear orders is set up

in all contexts importing or interpreting the corresponding locales.
haftmann@25184
  2596
Method "order" invokes the reasoner separately; the reasoner
haftmann@25184
  2597
is also integrated with the Simplifier as a solver.  Diagnostic
haftmann@25184
  2598
command 'print_orders' shows the available instances of the reasoner

  2604
haftmann@25184
