Isabelle991 is now available. This release continues the line of


6 
Isabelle99, introducing numerous improvements, both internal and user


7 
visible.


8 


9 
In particular, great care has been taken to improve robustness and


10 
ease use and installation of the complete Isabelle working


11 
environment, including the Proof General user interface support, WWW


12 
presentation of theories and the Isabelle document preparation system.


13 


14 
The most prominent highlights of Isabelle991 are as follows.

16 
* Isabelle/Isar improvements (Markus Wenzel)


17 
o Support of tacticemulation scripts for easy porting of legacy ML


18 
scripts (see also the HOL/Lambda example).


19 
o Better support for scalable verification tasks (manage large


20 
contexts in induction, generalized existence reasoning etc.)


21 
o HindleyMilner polymorphism for proof texts.


22 
o More robust document preparation, better LaTeX output due to


23 
fake mathmode.


24 
o Extended "Isabelle/Isar Reference Manual"

* HOL/MicroJava (Gerwin Klein, Tobias Nipkow, David von Oheimb, and


28 
Cornelia Pusch)


29 
Formalization of a fragment of Java, together with a corresponding


30 
virtual machine and a specification of its bytecode verifier and a


31 
lightweight bytecode verifier, including proofs of typesafety.


32 


33 
* HOL/Real (Jacques Fleuriot)


34 
More on nonstandard real analysis.


35 


36 
* HOL/Algebra (Clemens Ballarin)


37 
Rings and univariate polynomials.

* HOL/NumberTheory (Thomas Rasmussen)


40 
Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic, Chinese Remainder Theorem,


41 
Fermat/Euler Theorem, Wilson's Theorem.


42 


43 
* HOL/Lambda (Stefan Berghofer and Tobias Nipkow)


44 
More on termination of simplytyped lambdaterms; converted into


45 
an Isabelle/Isar tactic emulation script.


46 


47 
* HOL/Lattice (Markus Wenzel)


48 
Lattices and orders in Isabelle/Isar.


49 


50 
* HOL/Isar_examples (Markus Wenzel)


51 
More examples, including a formulation of Hoare Logic in Isabelle/Isar.


52 


53 
* HOL/Prolog (David von Oheimb)


54 
A (barebones) implementation of LambdaProlog.
