* Explicit treatment of UTF8 sequences as Isabelle symbols, such that
wenzelm@37536
    10
a Unicode character is treated as a single symbol, not a sequence of
wenzelm@37536
    11
non-ASCII bytes as before.  Since Isabelle/ML string literals may
wenzelm@37536
    12
contain symbols without further backslash escapes, Unicode can now be
wenzelm@37536
    13
used here as well.  Recall that Symbol.explode in ML provides a
wenzelm@37536
    14
consistent view on symbols, while raw explode (or String.explode)
wenzelm@37536
    15
merely give a byte-oriented representation.

* code generator: export_code without explicit file declaration prints
haftmann@37820
    21
to standard output.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@37820
    22
haftmann@37679
    23
* Abolished symbol type names:  "prod" and "sum" replace "*" and "+"
haftmann@37681
    24
respectively.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@37679
    25
haftmann@37591
    26
* Constant "split" has been merged with constant "prod_case";  names
haftmann@37591
    27
of ML functions, facts etc. involving split have been retained so far,
haftmann@37591
    28
though.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@37591
    29
haftmann@37595
    30
* Dropped old infix syntax "mem" for List.member;  use "in set"
haftmann@37595
    31
instead.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@37595
    32
haftmann@37595

INCOMPATIBILITY.  Note that these were not suppossed to be used
haftmann@37595

wenzelm@37383
    63
haftmann@37411
    64
* Removed simplifier congruence rule of "prod_case", as has for long
haftmann@37411
    65
been the case with "split".
haftmann@37411
    66
haftmann@37423
    67
* Datatype package: theorems generated for executable equality
haftmann@37423
    68
(class eq) carry proper names and are treated as default code
haftmann@37423
    69
equations.
haftmann@37423
    70
haftmann@37423
    71
* List.thy: use various operations from the Haskell prelude when
haftmann@37423
    72
generating Haskell code.
haftmann@37423
    73
haftmann@37442
    74
* code_simp.ML: simplification with rules determined by
haftmann@37442
    75
code generator.
haftmann@37442
    76
haftmann@37442
    77
* code generator: do not print function definitions for case
haftmann@37442
    78
combinators any longer.
haftmann@37442
    79
hoelzl@37666
    80
* Multivariate Analysis: Introduced a type class for euclidean space. Most
hoelzl@37666
    81
theorems are now stated in terms of euclidean spaces instead of finite
hoelzl@37666
    82
cartesian products.

Also note that the indices are now natural numbers and not from some finite
hoelzl@37666
    96
type. Finite cartesian products of euclidean spaces, products of euclidean
hoelzl@37666
    97
spaces the real and complex numbers are instantiated to be euclidean_spaces.

bulwahn@37735
   101
* Inductive package: offers new command "inductive_simps" to automatically
bulwahn@37735
   102
  derive instantiated and simplified equations for inductive predicates,
bulwahn@37735
   103
  similar to inductive_cases.

wenzelm@37868
   108
* ML antiquotations @{theory} and @{theory_ref} refer to named
wenzelm@37868
   109
theories from the ancestry of the current context, not any accidental
wenzelm@37868
   110
theory loader state as before.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY, subtle
wenzelm@37868
   111
change in semantics.

   118
*** General ***
wenzelm@35260
   119
wenzelm@35436
   120
* Authentic syntax for *all* logical entities (type classes, type
wenzelm@35436
   121
constructors, term constants): provides simple and robust
wenzelm@35436
   122
correspondence between formal entities and concrete syntax.  Within
wenzelm@35436
   123
the parse tree / AST representations, "constants" are decorated by
wenzelm@35436
   124
their category (class, type, const) and spelled out explicitly with
wenzelm@35436
   125
their full internal name.
wenzelm@35436
   126
wenzelm@35436
   127
Substantial INCOMPATIBILITY concerning low-level syntax declarations
wenzelm@35436
   128
and translations (translation rules and translation functions in ML).
wenzelm@35436
   129
Some hints on upgrading:
wenzelm@35260
   130
wenzelm@35260
   131
  - Many existing uses of 'syntax' and 'translations' can be replaced
wenzelm@35436
   132
    by more modern 'type_notation', 'notation' and 'abbreviation',
wenzelm@35436
   133
    which are independent of this issue.
wenzelm@35260
   134
wenzelm@35260
   135
  - 'translations' require markup within the AST; the term syntax
wenzelm@35260
   136
    provides the following special forms:
wenzelm@35260
   137
wenzelm@35260
   138
      CONST c   -- produces syntax version of constant c from context
wenzelm@35261
   139
      XCONST c  -- literally c, checked as constant from context
wenzelm@35261
   140
      c         -- literally c, if declared by 'syntax'
wenzelm@35261
   141
wenzelm@35261
   142
    Plain identifiers are treated as AST variables -- occasionally the
wenzelm@35261
   143
    system indicates accidental variables via the error "rhs contains
wenzelm@35261
   144
    extra variables".
wenzelm@35260
   145
wenzelm@35436
   146
    Type classes and type constructors are marked according to their
wenzelm@35436
   147
    concrete syntax.  Some old translations rules need to be written
wenzelm@35436
   148
    for the "type" category, using type constructor application
wenzelm@35436
   149
    instead of pseudo-term application of the default category
wenzelm@35436
   150
    "logic".
wenzelm@35436
   151
wenzelm@35260
   152
  - 'parse_translation' etc. in ML may use the following
wenzelm@35260
   153
    antiquotations:
wenzelm@35260
   154
wenzelm@35436
   155
      @{class_syntax c}   -- type class c within parse tree / AST
wenzelm@35436
   156
      @{term_syntax c}    -- type constructor c within parse tree / AST
wenzelm@35260
   157
      @{const_syntax c}   -- ML version of "CONST c" above
wenzelm@35260
   158
      @{syntax_const c}   -- literally c (checked wrt. 'syntax' declarations)
wenzelm@35260
   159
wenzelm@35436
   160
  - Literal types within 'typed_print_translations', i.e. those *not*
wenzelm@35436
   161
    represented as pseudo-terms are represented verbatim.  Use @{class
wenzelm@35436
   162
    c} or @{type_name c} here instead of the above syntax
wenzelm@35436
   163
    antiquotations.
wenzelm@35436
   164
wenzelm@35260
   165
Note that old non-authentic syntax was based on unqualified base
wenzelm@35436
   166
names, so all of the above "constant" names would coincide.  Recall
wenzelm@35436
   167
that 'print_syntax' and ML_command "set Syntax.trace_ast" help to
wenzelm@35436
   168
diagnose syntax problems.
wenzelm@35260
   169
wenzelm@35351
   170
* Type constructors admit general mixfix syntax, not just infix.
wenzelm@35351
   171
wenzelm@36508
   172
* Concrete syntax may be attached to local entities without a proof
wenzelm@36508
   173
body, too.  This works via regular mixfix annotations for 'fix',
wenzelm@36508
   174
'def', 'obtain' etc. or via the explicit 'write' command, which is
wenzelm@36508
   175
similar to the 'notation' command in theory specifications.
wenzelm@36508
   176
wenzelm@37351
   177
* Discontinued unnamed infix syntax (legacy feature for many years) --
wenzelm@37351
   178
need to specify constant name and syntax separately.  Internal ML
wenzelm@37351
   179
datatype constructors have been renamed from InfixName to Infix etc.
wenzelm@37351
   180
Minor INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@37351
   181
wenzelm@37351
   182
* Schematic theorem statements need to be explicitly markup as such,
wenzelm@37351
   183
via commands 'schematic_lemma', 'schematic_theorem',
wenzelm@37351
   184
'schematic_corollary'.  Thus the relevance of the proof is made
wenzelm@37351
   185
syntactically clear, which impacts performance in a parallel or
wenzelm@37351
   186
asynchronous interactive environment.  Minor INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@37351
   187
wenzelm@35613
   188
* Use of cumulative prems via "!" in some proof methods has been
wenzelm@37351
   189
discontinued (old legacy feature).
wenzelm@35613
   190
boehmes@35979
   191
* References 'trace_simp' and 'debug_simp' have been replaced by
wenzelm@36857
   192
configuration options stored in the context. Enabling tracing (the
wenzelm@36857
   193
case of debugging is similar) in proofs works via
wenzelm@36857
   194
wenzelm@36857
   195
  using [[trace_simp = true]]
wenzelm@36857
   196
wenzelm@36857
   197
Tracing is then active for all invocations of the simplifier in
wenzelm@36857
   198
subsequent goal refinement steps. Tracing may also still be enabled or
wenzelm@36857
   199
disabled via the ProofGeneral settings menu.
boehmes@35979
   200
wenzelm@36177
   201
* Separate commands 'hide_class', 'hide_type', 'hide_const',
wenzelm@36177
   202
'hide_fact' replace the former 'hide' KIND command.  Minor
wenzelm@36177
   203
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@36177
   204
wenzelm@37298
   205
* Improved parallelism of proof term normalization: usedir -p2 -q0 is
wenzelm@37298
   206
more efficient than combinations with -q1 or -q2.
wenzelm@37298
   207

   209
*** Pure ***
haftmann@34170
   210
wenzelm@37351
   211
* Proofterms record type-class reasoning explicitly, using the
wenzelm@37351
   212
"unconstrain" operation internally.  This eliminates all sort
wenzelm@37351
   213
constraints from a theorem and proof, introducing explicit
wenzelm@37351
   214
OFCLASS-premises.  On the proof term level, this operation is
wenzelm@37351
   215
automatically applied at theorem boundaries, such that closed proofs
wenzelm@37351
   216
are always free of sort constraints.  INCOMPATIBILITY for tools that
wenzelm@37351
   217
inspect proof terms.
haftmann@36147
   218
wenzelm@35765
   219
* Local theory specifications may depend on extra type variables that
wenzelm@35765
   220
are not present in the result type -- arguments TYPE('a) :: 'a itself
wenzelm@35765
   221
are added internally.  For example:
wenzelm@35765
   222
wenzelm@35765
   223
  definition unitary :: bool where "unitary = (ALL (x::'a) y. x = y)"
wenzelm@35765
   224
wenzelm@37351
   225
* Predicates of locales introduced by classes carry a mandatory
wenzelm@37351
   226
"class" prefix.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@37351
   227
wenzelm@37351
   228
* Vacuous class specifications observe default sort.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@37351
   229
wenzelm@37351
   230
* Old 'axclass' command has been discontinued.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use
wenzelm@37351
   231
'class' instead.
wenzelm@37351
   232
wenzelm@37351
   233
* Command 'code_reflect' allows to incorporate generated ML code into
wenzelm@37351
   234
runtime environment; replaces immature code_datatype antiquotation.
wenzelm@37351
   235
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@37351
   236
wenzelm@37351
   237
* Code generator: simple concept for abstract datatypes obeying
wenzelm@37351
   238
invariants.
wenzelm@37351
   239
wenzelm@36857
   240
* Code generator: details of internal data cache have no impact on the
wenzelm@36857
   241
user space functionality any longer.
wenzelm@36857
   242
wenzelm@37351
   243
* Methods "unfold_locales" and "intro_locales" ignore non-locale
wenzelm@37351
   244
subgoals.  This is more appropriate for interpretations with 'where'.
wenzelm@36857
   245
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@34170
   246
wenzelm@36356
   247
* Command 'example_proof' opens an empty proof body.  This allows to
wenzelm@36356
   248
experiment with Isar, without producing any persistent result.
wenzelm@36356
   249
wenzelm@35413
   250
* Commands 'type_notation' and 'no_type_notation' declare type syntax
wenzelm@35413
   251
within a local theory context, with explicit checking of the
wenzelm@35413
   252
constructors involved (in contrast to the raw 'syntax' versions).
wenzelm@35413
   253
wenzelm@36178
   254
* Commands 'types' and 'typedecl' now work within a local theory
wenzelm@36178
   255
context -- without introducing dependencies on parameters or
wenzelm@36178
   256
assumptions, which is not possible in Isabelle/Pure.
wenzelm@35681
   257
wenzelm@36857
   258
* Command 'defaultsort' has been renamed to 'default_sort', it works
wenzelm@36857
   259
within a local theory context.  Minor INCOMPATIBILITY.

haftmann@33993
   263
wenzelm@37351
   264
* Command 'typedef' now works within a local theory context -- without
wenzelm@37351
   265
introducing dependencies on parameters or assumptions, which is not
wenzelm@37351
   266
possible in Isabelle/Pure/HOL.  Note that the logical environment may
wenzelm@37351
   267
contain multiple interpretations of local typedefs (with different
wenzelm@37351
   268
non-emptiness proofs), even in a global theory context.
wenzelm@37351
   269
wenzelm@37351
   270
* New package for quotient types.  Commands 'quotient_type' and
wenzelm@37351
   271
'quotient_definition' may be used for defining types and constants by
wenzelm@37351
   272
quotient constructions.  An example is the type of integers created by
wenzelm@37351
   273
quotienting pairs of natural numbers:
wenzelm@37380
   274
wenzelm@37351
   275
  fun
wenzelm@37380
   276
    intrel :: "(nat * nat) => (nat * nat) => bool"
wenzelm@37351
   277
  where
wenzelm@37351
   278
    "intrel (x, y) (u, v) = (x + v = u + y)"
wenzelm@37351
   279
wenzelm@37380
   280
  quotient_type int = "nat * nat" / intrel

The method "lifting" can be used to lift of theorems from the
wenzelm@37351
   287
underlying "raw" type to the quotient type.  The example
wenzelm@37351
   288
src/HOL/Quotient_Examples/FSet.thy includes such a quotient
wenzelm@37351
   289
construction and provides a reasoning infrastructure for finite sets.

wenzelm@36857
   449
  - dropped theorem group ring_simps, use field_simps instead;
wenzelm@36857

   471
replaced by the more convenient lemmas Inf_empty and Sup_empty.
haftmann@36416
   472
Dropped lemmas Inf_insert_simp and Sup_insert_simp, which are subsumed

   478
multiset order:
wenzelm@37351
   479
wenzelm@36857
   480
  - pointwise ordering is instance of class order with standard syntax
wenzelm@36857
   481
    <= and <;
wenzelm@36857
   482
  - multiset ordering has syntax <=# and <#; partial order properties
wenzelm@36857
   483
    are provided by means of interpretation with prefix
wenzelm@36857
   484
    multiset_order;
wenzelm@36857
   485
  - less duplication, less historical organization of sections,
wenzelm@36857
   486
    conversion from associations lists to multisets, rudimentary code
wenzelm@36857
   487
    generation;
wenzelm@36857
   488
  - use insert_DiffM2 [symmetric] instead of elem_imp_eq_diff_union,

blanchet@36929
   547
  - Added user's manual ("isabelle doc sledgehammer").
blanchet@36929
   548
  - Added option syntax and "sledgehammer_params" to customize
blanchet@36929
   549
    Sledgehammer's behavior.  See the manual for details.
blanchet@36929
   550
  - Modified the Isar proof reconstruction code so that it produces
blanchet@36929
   551
    direct proofs rather than proofs by contradiction.  (This feature
blanchet@36929
   552

blanchet@36929
   555
  - Added support for TPTP syntax for SPASS via the "spass_tptp" ATP.

* Nitpick:
blanchet@36928
   558
  - Added and implemented "binary_ints" and "bits" options.
blanchet@36928
   559
  - Added "std" option and implemented support for nonstandard models.
blanchet@36928
   560
  - Added and implemented "finitize" option to improve the precision
blanchet@36928
   561
    of infinite datatypes based on a monotonicity analysis.
blanchet@36928
   562
  - Added support for quotient types.
blanchet@36928
   563
  - Added support for "specification" and "ax_specification"
blanchet@36928

    constructs.
blanchet@36928
   565
  - Added support for local definitions (for "function" and
blanchet@36928
   566
    "termination" proofs).
blanchet@36928
   567
  - Added support for term postprocessors.
blanchet@36928
   568
  - Optimized "Multiset.multiset" and "FinFun.finfun".
blanchet@36928
   569
  - Improved efficiency of "destroy_constrs" optimization.
blanchet@36928
   570
  - Fixed soundness bugs related to "destroy_constrs" optimization and
blanchet@36928
   571
    record getters.
blanchet@37272
   572
  - Fixed soundness bug related to higher-order constructors.
blanchet@37272
   573
  - Fixed soundness bug when "full_descrs" is enabled.
blanchet@36928
   574
  - Improved precision of set constructs.
blanchet@37260
   575
  - Added "atoms" option.
blanchet@36928
   576
  - Added cache to speed up repeated Kodkod invocations on the same
blanchet@36928
   577
    problems.
blanchet@36928
   578
  - Renamed "MiniSatJNI", "zChaffJNI", "BerkMinAlloy", and
blanchet@36928
   579
    "SAT4JLight" to "MiniSat_JNI", "zChaff_JNI", "BerkMin_Alloy", and
blanchet@36928
   580
    "SAT4J_Light".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
blanchet@36928
   581
  - Removed "skolemize", "uncurry", "sym_break", "flatten_prop",
blanchet@36928
   582
    "sharing_depth", and "show_skolems" options.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
blanchet@37264

* Method "induct" now takes instantiations of the form t, where t is not
berghofe@37361

  a variable, as a shorthand for "x == t", where x is a fresh variable.
berghofe@37361
   587
  If this is not intended, t has to be enclosed in parentheses.
berghofe@37361
   588
  By default, the equalities generated by definitional instantiations
berghofe@37361
   589
  are pre-simplified, which may cause parameters of inductive cases
berghofe@37361
   590
  to disappear, or may even delete some of the inductive cases.
berghofe@37361
   591
  Use "induct (no_simp)" instead of "induct" to restore the old
berghofe@37361
   592
  behaviour. The (no_simp) option is also understood by the "cases"
berghofe@37361
   593
  and "nominal_induct" methods, which now perform pre-simplification, too.

   668
wenzelm@37351
   669
* Antiquotation @{syntax_const NAME} ensures that NAME refers to a raw
wenzelm@37351
   670
syntax constant (cf. 'syntax' command).
wenzelm@37351
   671
wenzelm@37351
   672
* Antiquotation @{make_string} inlines a function to print arbitrary
wenzelm@37351
   673
values similar to the ML toplevel.  The result is compiler dependent
wenzelm@37351
   674
and may fall back on "?" in certain situations.
wenzelm@37351
   675
wenzelm@37351
   676
* Diagnostic commands 'ML_val' and 'ML_command' may refer to
wenzelm@37351
   677
antiquotations @{Isar.state} and @{Isar.goal}.  This replaces impure
wenzelm@37351
   678
Isar.state() and Isar.goal(), which belong to the old TTY loop and do

   679
not work with the asynchronous Isar document model.

* Most operations that refer to a global context are named
wenzelm@37144

accordingly, e.g. Simplifier.global_context or
wenzelm@37144
   706
ProofContext.init_global.  There are some situations where a global
wenzelm@37144
   707
context actually works, but under normal circumstances one needs to
wenzelm@37144
   708
pass the proper local context through the code!
wenzelm@37144
   709
wenzelm@37144
   710
* Discontinued old TheoryDataFun with its copy/init operation -- data
wenzelm@37144
   711
needs to be pure.  Functor Theory_Data_PP retains the traditional
wenzelm@37144

* Sorts.certify_sort and derived "cert" operations for types and terms
wenzelm@37144
   716
no longer minimize sorts.  Thus certification at the boundary of the
wenzelm@37144
   717
inference kernel becomes invariant under addition of class relations,
wenzelm@37144
   718
which is an important monotonicity principle.  Sorts are now minimized
wenzelm@37144
   719
in the syntax layer only, at the boundary between the end-user and the
wenzelm@37144

wenzelm@35021
   724
emphasize that this is in no way a standard operation.

   732
quite rare).
wenzelm@35845

wenzelm@36961
   736
wenzelm@37351

* "IsabelleText" is a Unicode font derived from Bitstream Vera Mono
wenzelm@37375
   769
and Bluesky TeX fonts.  It provides the usual Isabelle symbols,
wenzelm@37375
   770
similar to the default assignment of the document preparation system
wenzelm@37375
   771
(cf. isabellesym.sty).  The Isabelle/Scala class Isabelle_System
wenzelm@37375
   772
provides some operations for direct access to the font without asking
wenzelm@37375
   773
the user for manual installation.

* Locale interpretation propagates mixins along the locale hierarchy.
ballarin@32846
   789
The currently only available mixins are the equations used to map
ballarin@32846
   790
local definitions to terms of the target domain of an interpretation.
ballarin@32846
   791
wenzelm@33842
   792
* Reactivated diagnostic command 'print_interps'.  Use "print_interps
wenzelm@33842

loc" to print all interpretations of locale "loc" in the theory.
wenzelm@33842
   794
Interpretations in proofs are not shown.

wenzelm@33842
   806
instead of @{foo_style style ...}  (old form is still retained for
wenzelm@33842

* New proof method "smt" for a combination of first-order logic with
wenzelm@33842
   814
equality, linear and nonlinear (natural/integer/real) arithmetic, and
wenzelm@33842
   815
fixed-size bitvectors; there is also basic support for higher-order
wenzelm@33842
   816
features (esp. lambda abstractions).  It is an incomplete decision
wenzelm@33842
   817
procedure based on external SMT solvers using the oracle mechanism;
wenzelm@33842
   818
for the SMT solver Z3, this method is proof-producing.  Certificates
wenzelm@33842
   819
are provided to avoid calling the external solvers solely for
wenzelm@33842
   820
re-checking proofs.  Due to a remote SMT service there is no need for
wenzelm@33842
   821
installing SMT solvers locally.  See src/HOL/SMT.
wenzelm@33842
   822
wenzelm@33842
   823
* New commands to load and prove verification conditions generated by
wenzelm@33842
   824
the Boogie program verifier or derived systems (e.g. the Verifying C
wenzelm@33842
   825
Compiler (VCC) or Spec#).  See src/HOL/Boogie.
wenzelm@33842
   826
wenzelm@33842
   827
* New counterexample generator tool 'nitpick' based on the Kodkod
wenzelm@33842
   828
relational model finder.  See src/HOL/Tools/Nitpick and
wenzelm@33842
   829
src/HOL/Nitpick_Examples.
wenzelm@33842
   830
haftmann@33860
   831
* New commands 'code_pred' and 'values' to invoke the predicate
haftmann@33860
   832
compiler and to enumerate values of inductive predicates.
haftmann@33860
   833
haftmann@33860
   834
* A tabled implementation of the reflexive transitive closure.
haftmann@33860
   835
haftmann@33860
   836
* New implementation of quickcheck uses generic code generator;
haftmann@33860
   837
default generators are provided for all suitable HOL types, records
haftmann@33860
   838
and datatypes.  Old quickcheck can be re-activated importing theory
haftmann@33860
   839
Library/SML_Quickcheck.
haftmann@33860
   840
wenzelm@33843
   841
* New testing tool Mirabelle for automated proof tools.  Applies
wenzelm@33843
   842
several tools and tactics like sledgehammer, metis, or quickcheck, to
wenzelm@33843
   843
every proof step in a theory.  To be used in batch mode via the
wenzelm@33843
   844
"mirabelle" utility.
wenzelm@33843
   845
wenzelm@33843
   846
* New proof method "sos" (sum of squares) for nonlinear real
wenzelm@33843
   847
arithmetic (originally due to John Harison). It requires theory
wenzelm@33843
   848
Library/Sum_Of_Squares.  It is not a complete decision procedure but
wenzelm@33843
   849
works well in practice on quantifier-free real arithmetic with +, -,
wenzelm@33843
   850
*, ^, =, <= and <, i.e. boolean combinations of equalities and
wenzelm@33843
   851
inequalities between polynomials.  It makes use of external
wenzelm@33843
   852
semidefinite programming solvers.  Method "sos" generates a
wenzelm@33843
   853
certificate that can be pasted into the proof thus avoiding the need
wenzelm@33843
   854
to call an external tool every time the proof is checked.  See
wenzelm@33843
   855
src/HOL/Library/Sum_Of_Squares.
wenzelm@33843

wenzelm@33843
   858
procedure only.
wenzelm@33843
   859
wenzelm@33843
   860
* New command 'atp_minimal' reduces result produced by Sledgehammer.
wenzelm@33843
   861
wenzelm@33843
   862
* New Sledgehammer option "Full Types" in Proof General settings menu.
wenzelm@33843
   863
Causes full type information to be output to the ATPs.  This slows
wenzelm@33843
   864
ATPs down considerably but eliminates a source of unsound "proofs"
wenzelm@33843
   865
that fail later.
wenzelm@33843
   866
wenzelm@33843
   867
* New method "metisFT": A version of metis that uses full type
wenzelm@33843
   868
information in order to avoid failures of proof reconstruction.
wenzelm@33843
   869
wenzelm@33843
   870
* New evaluator "approximate" approximates an real valued term using
wenzelm@33843
   871
the same method as the approximation method.
wenzelm@33843
   872
wenzelm@33843
   873
* Method "approximate" now supports arithmetic expressions as
wenzelm@33843
   874
boundaries of intervals and implements interval splitting and Taylor
wenzelm@33843
   875
series expansion.
wenzelm@33843
   876
wenzelm@33843
   877
* ML antiquotation @{code_datatype} inserts definition of a datatype
wenzelm@33843
   878
generated by the code generator; e.g. see src/HOL/Predicate.thy.
wenzelm@33843
   879
haftmann@33860
   880
* New theory SupInf of the supremum and infimum operators for sets of
haftmann@33860
   881
reals.
haftmann@33860
   882
haftmann@33860
   883
* New theory Probability, which contains a development of measure
haftmann@33860
   884
theory, eventually leading to Lebesgue integration and probability.
haftmann@33860
   885
haftmann@33860
   886
* Extended Multivariate Analysis to include derivation and Brouwer's
haftmann@33860
   887
fixpoint theorem.

   888
wenzelm@33842

* Reorganization of number theory, INCOMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@33873
   890
  - new number theory development for nat and int, in theories Divides
wenzelm@33873
   891
    and GCD as well as in new session Number_Theory
wenzelm@33873
   892
  - some constants and facts now suffixed with _nat and _int
wenzelm@33873
   893
    accordingly
wenzelm@33873
   894
  - former session NumberTheory now named Old_Number_Theory, including
wenzelm@33873
   895
    theories Legacy_GCD and Primes (prefer Number_Theory if possible)
wenzelm@33842
   896
  - moved theory Pocklington from src/HOL/Library to
wenzelm@33842
   897
    src/HOL/Old_Number_Theory
haftmann@32479
   898
wenzelm@33873
   899
* Theory GCD includes functions Gcd/GCD and Lcm/LCM for the gcd and
wenzelm@33873
   900
lcm of finite and infinite sets. It is shown that they form a complete
haftmann@32600
   901
lattice.
haftmann@32600
   902
haftmann@32600
   903
* Class semiring_div requires superclass no_zero_divisors and proof of
haftmann@32600
   904
div_mult_mult1; theorems div_mult_mult1, div_mult_mult2,
haftmann@32600
   905
div_mult_mult1_if, div_mult_mult1 and div_mult_mult2 have been
haftmann@32600
   906
generalized to class semiring_div, subsuming former theorems
haftmann@32600
   907
zdiv_zmult_zmult1, zdiv_zmult_zmult1_if, zdiv_zmult_zmult1 and
haftmann@32600
   908
zdiv_zmult_zmult2.  div_mult_mult1 is now [simp] by default.
haftmann@32600
   909
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@32600
   910
haftmann@32588
   911
* Refinements to lattice classes and sets:
haftmann@32064
   912
  - less default intro/elim rules in locale variant, more default
haftmann@32064
   913
    intro/elim rules in class variant: more uniformity
wenzelm@33842
   914
  - lemma ge_sup_conv renamed to le_sup_iff, in accordance with
wenzelm@33842
   915
    le_inf_iff
wenzelm@33842
   916
  - dropped lemma alias inf_ACI for inf_aci (same for sup_ACI and
wenzelm@33842
   917
    sup_aci)
haftmann@32064
   918
  - renamed ACI to inf_sup_aci
haftmann@32600
   919
  - new class "boolean_algebra"
wenzelm@33842
   920
  - class "complete_lattice" moved to separate theory
haftmann@33860
   921
    "Complete_Lattice"; corresponding constants (and abbreviations)

INCOMPATIBILITY.  Care is required when theorems Int_subset_iff or
wenzelm@33842
   946
Un_subset_iff are explicitly deleted as default simp rules; then also
wenzelm@33842
   947
their lattice counterparts le_inf_iff and le_sup_iff have to be
haftmann@32691
   948
deleted to achieve the desired effect.
haftmann@32064
   949
wenzelm@33842
   950
* Rules inf_absorb1, inf_absorb2, sup_absorb1, sup_absorb2 are no simp
wenzelm@33842
   951
rules by default any longer; the same applies to min_max.inf_absorb1
wenzelm@33842
   952
etc.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@33842
   953
wenzelm@33842
   954
* Rules sup_Int_eq and sup_Un_eq are no longer declared as
wenzelm@33842
   955
pred_set_conv by default.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@33842
   956
wenzelm@33842
   957
* Power operations on relations and functions are now one dedicated
haftmann@32706
   958
constant "compow" with infix syntax "^^".  Power operation on
wenzelm@31547
   959
multiplicative monoids retains syntax "^" and is now defined generic

   960
in class power.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@31547
   961
wenzelm@33842
   962
* Relation composition "R O S" now has a more standard argument order:
wenzelm@33842
   963
"R O S = {(x, z). EX y. (x, y) : R & (y, z) : S}".  INCOMPATIBILITY,
wenzelm@33842
   964
rewrite propositions with "S O R" --> "R O S". Proofs may occasionally
wenzelm@33842
   965
break, since the O_assoc rule was not rewritten like this.  Fix using

wenzelm@33842
   975
* Changed "DERIV_intros" to a dynamic fact, which can be augmented by
wenzelm@33842
   976
the attribute of the same name.  Each of the theorems in the list
wenzelm@33842
   977
DERIV_intros assumes composition with an additional function and
wenzelm@33842
   978
matches a variable to the derivative, which has to be solved by the
wenzelm@33842
   979
Simplifier.  Hence (auto intro!: DERIV_intros) computes the derivative
wenzelm@33873
   980
of most elementary terms.  Former Maclauren.DERIV_tac and
wenzelm@33873
   981
Maclauren.deriv_tac should be replaced by (auto intro!: DERIV_intros).

* Theory Representable defines a class "rep" of domains that are
wenzelm@33842
  1016
representable (via an ep-pair) in the universal domain type "udom".

huffman@33825
  1019
* The 'new_domain' command is a purely definitional version of the
huffman@33825
  1020
domain package, for representable domains.  Syntax is identical to the
huffman@33825
  1021
old domain package.  The 'new_domain' package also supports indirect

  1035
* The 'fixrec' package now produces better fixed-point induction rules
huffman@33825
  1036
for mutually-recursive definitions:  Induction rules have conclusions
huffman@33825
  1037
of the form "P foo bar" instead of "P <foo, bar>".
huffman@33825
  1038
huffman@33825
  1039
* The constant "sq_le" (with infix syntax "<<" or "\<sqsubseteq>") has
huffman@33825
  1040
been renamed to "below".  The name "below" now replaces "less" in many
wenzelm@33842
  1041
theorem names.  (Legacy theorem names using "less" are still supported
wenzelm@33842
  1042
as well.)
huffman@33825
  1043
huffman@33825
  1044
* The 'fixrec' package now supports "bottom patterns".  Bottom
huffman@33825
  1045
patterns can be used to generate strictness rules, or to make
huffman@33825
  1046
functions more strict (much like the bang-patterns supported by the
wenzelm@33873
  1047
Glasgow Haskell Compiler).  See src/HOLCF/ex/Fixrec_ex.thy for
wenzelm@33873
  1048
examples.

*** ML ***
wenzelm@31304
  1052
wenzelm@33843
  1053
* Support for Poly/ML 5.3.0, with improved reporting of compiler
wenzelm@33843
  1054
errors and run-time exceptions, including detailed source positions.
wenzelm@33843
  1055
wenzelm@33843
  1056
* Structure Name_Space (formerly NameSpace) now manages uniquely
wenzelm@33843
  1057
identified entries, with some additional information such as source
wenzelm@33843
  1058
position, logical grouping etc.
wenzelm@33843
  1059
wenzelm@33524
  1060
* Theory and context data is now introduced by the simplified and
wenzelm@33524
  1061
modernized functors Theory_Data, Proof_Data, Generic_Data.  Data needs
wenzelm@33524
  1062
to be pure, but the old TheoryDataFun for mutable data (with explicit
wenzelm@33524
  1063
copy operation) is still available for some time.
wenzelm@33524
  1064
wenzelm@32742
  1065
* Structure Synchronized (cf. src/Pure/Concurrent/synchronized.ML)
wenzelm@32742
  1066
provides a high-level programming interface to synchronized state
wenzelm@32742
  1067
variables with atomic update.  This works via pure function
wenzelm@32742
  1068
application within a critical section -- its runtime should be as
wenzelm@32742
  1069
short as possible; beware of deadlocks if critical code is nested,
wenzelm@32742
  1070
either directly or indirectly via other synchronized variables!
wenzelm@32742
  1071
wenzelm@32742
  1072
* Structure Unsynchronized (cf. src/Pure/ML-Systems/unsynchronized.ML)
wenzelm@32742
  1073
wraps raw ML references, explicitly indicating their non-thread-safe
wenzelm@32742
  1074
behaviour.  The Isar toplevel keeps this structure open, to
wenzelm@32742
  1075
accommodate Proof General as well as quick and dirty interactive
wenzelm@32742
  1076
experiments with references.
wenzelm@32742
  1077
wenzelm@32365
  1078
* PARALLEL_CHOICE and PARALLEL_GOALS provide basic support for
wenzelm@32365
  1079
parallel tactical reasoning.
wenzelm@32365
  1080
wenzelm@32427
  1081
* Tacticals Subgoal.FOCUS, Subgoal.FOCUS_PREMS, Subgoal.FOCUS_PARAMS
wenzelm@32427
  1082
are similar to SUBPROOF, but are slightly more flexible: only the
wenzelm@32427
  1083
specified parts of the subgoal are imported into the context, and the
wenzelm@32427
  1084
body tactic may introduce new subgoals and schematic variables.
wenzelm@32427
  1085
wenzelm@32427
  1086
* Old tactical METAHYPS, which does not observe the proof context, has
wenzelm@32427
  1087
been renamed to Old_Goals.METAHYPS and awaits deletion.  Use SUBPROOF
wenzelm@32427
  1088
or Subgoal.FOCUS etc.
wenzelm@32216
  1089
wenzelm@31971
  1090
* Renamed functor TableFun to Table, and GraphFun to Graph.  (Since
wenzelm@31971
  1091
functors have their own ML name space there is no point to mark them
wenzelm@31971
  1092
separately.)  Minor INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@31971
  1093
wenzelm@31901
  1094
* Renamed NamedThmsFun to Named_Thms.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@31901
  1095
wenzelm@33842
  1096
* Renamed several structures FooBar to Foo_Bar.  Occasional,
wenzelm@33842
  1097
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@33842
  1098
wenzelm@33843
  1099
* Operations of structure Skip_Proof no longer require quick_and_dirty
wenzelm@33843
  1100
mode, which avoids critical setmp.
wenzelm@33843
  1101
wenzelm@31306
  1102
* Eliminated old Attrib.add_attributes, Method.add_methods and related
wenzelm@33842
  1103
combinators for "args".  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to use simplified
wenzelm@31306
  1104
Attrib/Method.setup introduced in Isabelle2009.
wenzelm@31304
  1105
wenzelm@32151
  1106
* Proper context for simpset_of, claset_of, clasimpset_of.  May fall
wenzelm@32151
  1107
back on global_simpset_of, global_claset_of, global_clasimpset_of as
wenzelm@32151
  1108
last resort.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@32151
  1109
wenzelm@32092
  1110
* Display.pretty_thm now requires a proper context (cf. former
wenzelm@32092
  1111
ProofContext.pretty_thm).  May fall back on Display.pretty_thm_global
wenzelm@32092
  1112
or even Display.pretty_thm_without_context as last resort.
wenzelm@32092
  1113
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@32092
  1114
wenzelm@32433
  1115
* Discontinued Display.pretty_ctyp/cterm etc.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use
wenzelm@32433
  1116
Syntax.pretty_typ/term directly, preferably with proper context
wenzelm@32433
  1117
instead of global theory.

*** System ***
wenzelm@31308
  1121
wenzelm@33842
  1122
* Further fine tuning of parallel proof checking, scales up to 8 cores
wenzelm@33842
  1123
(max. speedup factor 5.0).  See also Goal.parallel_proofs in ML and
wenzelm@33842
  1124
usedir option -q.
wenzelm@33842
  1125
wenzelm@32326
  1126
* Support for additional "Isabelle components" via etc/components, see
wenzelm@32326
  1127
also the system manual.
wenzelm@32326
  1128
wenzelm@32326
  1129
* The isabelle makeall tool now operates on all components with
wenzelm@32326
  1130
IsaMakefile, not just hardwired "logics".
wenzelm@32326
  1131
wenzelm@33842
  1132
* Removed "compress" option from isabelle-process and isabelle usedir;
wenzelm@33842
  1133
this is always enabled.
kleing@33818
  1134
wenzelm@31308
  1135
* Discontinued support for Poly/ML 4.x versions.
wenzelm@31308
  1136
wenzelm@33842
  1137
* Isabelle tool "wwwfind" provides web interface for 'find_theorems'
wenzelm@33842
  1138
on a given logic image.  This requires the lighttpd webserver and is
wenzelm@33842
  1139
currently supported on Linux only.

wenzelm@27599
  1146
*** General ***
wenzelm@27599
  1147
wenzelm@28504
  1148
* Simplified main Isabelle executables, with less surprises on
wenzelm@28504
  1149
case-insensitive file-systems (such as Mac OS).
wenzelm@28504
  1150
wenzelm@28504
  1151
  - The main Isabelle tool wrapper is now called "isabelle" instead of
wenzelm@28504
  1152
    "isatool."
wenzelm@28504
  1153
wenzelm@28504
  1154
  - The former "isabelle" alias for "isabelle-process" has been
wenzelm@28504
  1155
    removed (should rarely occur to regular users).
wenzelm@28504
  1156
wenzelm@28915
  1157
  - The former "isabelle-interface" and its alias "Isabelle" have been
wenzelm@28915
  1158
    removed (interfaces are now regular Isabelle tools).
wenzelm@28504
  1159
wenzelm@28504
  1160
Within scripts and make files, the Isabelle environment variables
wenzelm@28504
  1161
ISABELLE_TOOL and ISABELLE_PROCESS replace old ISATOOL and ISABELLE,
wenzelm@28504
  1162
respectively.  (The latter are still available as legacy feature.)
wenzelm@28504
  1163
wenzelm@28915
  1164
The old isabelle-interface wrapper could react in confusing ways if
wenzelm@28915
  1165
the interface was uninstalled or changed otherwise.  Individual
wenzelm@28915
  1166
interface tool configuration is now more explicit, see also the
wenzelm@28915
  1167
Isabelle system manual.  In particular, Proof General is now available
wenzelm@28915
  1168
via "isabelle emacs".
wenzelm@28504
  1169
wenzelm@28504
  1170
INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt derivative scripts.  Users may need to
wenzelm@28504
  1171
purge installed copies of Isabelle executables and re-run "isabelle
wenzelm@28504
  1172
install -p ...", or use symlinks.
wenzelm@28504
  1173
wenzelm@28914
  1174
* The default for ISABELLE_HOME_USER is now ~/.isabelle instead of the
wenzelm@30845
  1175
old ~/isabelle, which was slightly non-standard and apt to cause
wenzelm@30845
  1176
surprises on case-insensitive file-systems (such as Mac OS).
wenzelm@28914
  1177
wenzelm@28914
  1178
INCOMPATIBILITY, need to move existing ~/isabelle/etc,
wenzelm@28914
  1179
~/isabelle/heaps, ~/isabelle/browser_info to the new place.  Special
wenzelm@28914
  1180
care is required when using older releases of Isabelle.  Note that
wenzelm@28914
  1181
ISABELLE_HOME_USER can be changed in Isabelle/etc/settings of any
wenzelm@30845
  1182
Isabelle distribution, in order to use the new ~/.isabelle uniformly.
wenzelm@28914
  1183
wenzelm@29161
  1184
* Proofs of fully specified statements are run in parallel on
wenzelm@30845
  1185
multi-core systems.  A speedup factor of 2.5 to 3.2 can be expected on
wenzelm@30845
  1186
a regular 4-core machine, if the initial heap space is made reasonably
wenzelm@30845
  1187
large (cf. Poly/ML option -H).  (Requires Poly/ML 5.2.1 or later.)
wenzelm@30845
  1188
wenzelm@30845
  1189
* The main reference manuals ("isar-ref", "implementation", and
wenzelm@30845
  1190
"system") have been updated and extended.  Formally checked references
wenzelm@30845
  1191
as hyperlinks are now available uniformly.

wenzelm@27599
  1194
*** Pure ***
wenzelm@27599
  1195
wenzelm@30845
  1196
* Complete re-implementation of locales.  INCOMPATIBILITY in several
wenzelm@30845
  1197
respects.  The most important changes are listed below.  See the
wenzelm@30845
  1198
Tutorial on Locales ("locales" manual) for details.
ballarin@29253
  1199
ballarin@29253
  1200
- In locale expressions, instantiation replaces renaming.  Parameters
ballarin@29253
  1201
must be declared in a for clause.  To aid compatibility with previous
ballarin@29253
  1202
parameter inheritance, in locale declarations, parameters that are not
ballarin@29253
  1203
'touched' (instantiation position "_" or omitted) are implicitly added
ballarin@29253
  1204
with their syntax at the beginning of the for clause.
ballarin@29253
  1205
ballarin@29253
  1206
- Syntax from abbreviations and definitions in locales is available in
ballarin@29253
  1207
locale expressions and context elements.  The latter is particularly
ballarin@29253
  1208
useful in locale declarations.
ballarin@29253
  1209
ballarin@29253
  1210
- More flexible mechanisms to qualify names generated by locale
ballarin@29253
  1211
expressions.  Qualifiers (prefixes) may be specified in locale
wenzelm@30728
  1212
expressions, and can be marked as mandatory (syntax: "name!:") or
wenzelm@30728
  1213
optional (syntax "name?:").  The default depends for plain "name:"
wenzelm@30728
  1214
depends on the situation where a locale expression is used: in
wenzelm@30728
  1215
commands 'locale' and 'sublocale' prefixes are optional, in
wenzelm@30845
  1216
'interpretation' and 'interpret' prefixes are mandatory.  The old
wenzelm@30728
  1217
implicit qualifiers derived from the parameter names of a locale are
wenzelm@30728
  1218
no longer generated.
wenzelm@30106
  1219
wenzelm@30845
  1220
- Command "sublocale l < e" replaces "interpretation l < e".  The
wenzelm@30106
  1221
instantiation clause in "interpretation" and "interpret" (square
wenzelm@30106
  1222
brackets) is no longer available.  Use locale expressions.
ballarin@29253
  1223
wenzelm@30845
  1224
- When converting proof scripts, mandatory qualifiers in
wenzelm@30728
  1225
'interpretation' and 'interpret' should be retained by default, even
wenzelm@30845
  1226
if this is an INCOMPATIBILITY compared to former behavior.  In the
wenzelm@30845
  1227
worst case, use the "name?:" form for non-mandatory ones.  Qualifiers
wenzelm@30845
  1228
in locale expressions range over a single locale instance only.
wenzelm@30845
  1229
wenzelm@30845
  1230
- Dropped locale element "includes".  This is a major INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
  1231
In existing theorem specifications replace the includes element by the
wenzelm@30845
  1232
respective context elements of the included locale, omitting those
wenzelm@30845
  1233
that are already present in the theorem specification.  Multiple
wenzelm@30845
  1234
assume elements of a locale should be replaced by a single one
wenzelm@30845
  1235
involving the locale predicate.  In the proof body, declarations (most
wenzelm@30845
  1236
notably theorems) may be regained by interpreting the respective
wenzelm@30845
  1237
locales in the proof context as required (command "interpret").
wenzelm@30845
  1238
wenzelm@30845
  1239
If using "includes" in replacement of a target solely because the
wenzelm@30845
  1240
parameter types in the theorem are not as general as in the target,
wenzelm@30845
  1241
consider declaring a new locale with additional type constraints on
wenzelm@30845
  1242
the parameters (context element "constrains").
wenzelm@30845
  1243
wenzelm@30845
  1244
- Discontinued "locale (open)".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
  1245
wenzelm@30845
  1246
- Locale interpretation commands no longer attempt to simplify goal.
wenzelm@30845
  1247
INCOMPATIBILITY: in rare situations the generated goal differs.  Use
wenzelm@30845
  1248
methods intro_locales and unfold_locales to clarify.
wenzelm@30845
  1249
wenzelm@30845
  1250
- Locale interpretation commands no longer accept interpretation
wenzelm@30845
  1251
attributes.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
  1252
wenzelm@30845
  1253
* Class declaration: so-called "base sort" must not be given in import
wenzelm@30845
  1254
list any longer, but is inferred from the specification.  Particularly
wenzelm@30845
  1255
in HOL, write
wenzelm@30845
  1256
wenzelm@30845
  1257
    class foo = ...
wenzelm@30845
  1258
wenzelm@30845
  1259
instead of
wenzelm@30845
  1260
wenzelm@30845
  1261
    class foo = type + ...
wenzelm@30845
  1262
wenzelm@30845
  1263
* Class target: global versions of theorems stemming do not carry a
wenzelm@30845
  1264
parameter prefix any longer.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
  1265
wenzelm@30845
  1266
* Class 'instance' command no longer accepts attached definitions.
wenzelm@30845
  1267
INCOMPATIBILITY, use proper 'instantiation' target instead.
wenzelm@30845
  1268
wenzelm@30845
  1269
* Recovered hiding of consts, which was accidentally broken in
wenzelm@30845
  1270
Isabelle2007.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY, ``hide const c'' really
wenzelm@30845
  1271
makes c inaccessible; consider using ``hide (open) const c'' instead.
wenzelm@30845
  1272
wenzelm@30845
  1273
* Slightly more coherent Pure syntax, with updated documentation in
wenzelm@30845
  1274
isar-ref manual.  Removed locales meta_term_syntax and
wenzelm@30845
  1275
meta_conjunction_syntax: TERM and &&& (formerly &&) are now permanent,
wenzelm@30845
  1276
INCOMPATIBILITY in rare situations.  Note that &&& should not be used
wenzelm@30845
  1277
directly in regular applications.
wenzelm@30845
  1278
wenzelm@30845
  1279
* There is a new syntactic category "float_const" for signed decimal
wenzelm@30845
  1280
fractions (e.g. 123.45 or -123.45).
wenzelm@30845
  1281
wenzelm@30845
  1282
* Removed exotic 'token_translation' command.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use ML
wenzelm@30845
  1283
interface with 'setup' command instead.
wenzelm@30845
  1284
wenzelm@30845
  1285
* Command 'local_setup' is similar to 'setup', but operates on a local
wenzelm@30845
  1286
theory context.
haftmann@27104
  1287
wenzelm@28114
  1288
* The 'axiomatization' command now only works within a global theory
wenzelm@28114
  1289
context.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@28114
  1290
wenzelm@30845
  1291
* Goal-directed proof now enforces strict proof irrelevance wrt. sort
wenzelm@30845
  1292
hypotheses.  Sorts required in the course of reasoning need to be
wenzelm@30845
  1293
covered by the constraints in the initial statement, completed by the
wenzelm@30845
  1294
type instance information of the background theory.  Non-trivial sort
wenzelm@30845
  1295
hypotheses, which rarely occur in practice, may be specified via
wenzelm@30845
  1296
vacuous propositions of the form SORT_CONSTRAINT('a::c).  For example:
wenzelm@30845
  1297
wenzelm@30845
  1298
  lemma assumes "SORT_CONSTRAINT('a::empty)" shows False ...
wenzelm@30845
  1299
wenzelm@30845
  1300
The result contains an implicit sort hypotheses as before --
wenzelm@30845
  1301
SORT_CONSTRAINT premises are eliminated as part of the canonical rule
wenzelm@30845
  1302
normalization.
wenzelm@30845
  1303
wenzelm@30845
  1304
* Generalized Isar history, with support for linear undo, direct state
wenzelm@30845
  1305
addressing etc.
wenzelm@30845
  1306
wenzelm@30845
  1307
* Changed defaults for unify configuration options:
wenzelm@30845
  1308
wenzelm@30845
  1309
  unify_trace_bound = 50 (formerly 25)

  1312
* Different bookkeeping for code equations (INCOMPATIBILITY):
wenzelm@30845
  1313
wenzelm@30845
  1314
  a) On theory merge, the last set of code equations for a particular
wenzelm@30845
  1315
     constant is taken (in accordance with the policy applied by other
wenzelm@30845
  1316
     parts of the code generator framework).
wenzelm@30845
  1317
wenzelm@30845
  1318
  b) Code equations stemming from explicit declarations (e.g. code
wenzelm@30845
  1319
     attribute) gain priority over default code equations stemming
wenzelm@30845
  1320
     from definition, primrec, fun etc.
wenzelm@30845
  1321
wenzelm@30845
  1322
* Keyword 'code_exception' now named 'code_abort'.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
  1323
haftmann@30965
  1324
* Unified theorem tables for both code generators.  Thus [code
wenzelm@30845
  1325
func] has disappeared and only [code] remains.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30577
  1326
wenzelm@30577
  1327
* Command 'find_consts' searches for constants based on type and name
wenzelm@30577
  1328
patterns, e.g.
kleing@29883
  1329
kleing@29883
  1330
    find_consts "_ => bool"
kleing@29883
  1331
wenzelm@30106
  1332
By default, matching is against subtypes, but it may be restricted to
wenzelm@30728
  1333
the whole type.  Searching by name is possible.  Multiple queries are
wenzelm@30106
  1334
conjunctive and queries may be negated by prefixing them with a
wenzelm@30106
  1335
hyphen:
kleing@29883
  1336
kleing@29883
  1337
    find_consts strict: "_ => bool" name: "Int" -"int => int"
kleing@29861
  1338
wenzelm@30845
  1339
* New 'find_theorems' criterion "solves" matches theorems that
wenzelm@30845
  1340
directly solve the current goal (modulo higher-order unification).
wenzelm@30845
  1341
wenzelm@30845
  1342
* Auto solve feature for main theorem statements: whenever a new goal
wenzelm@30845
  1343
is stated, "find_theorems solves" is called; any theorems that could
wenzelm@30845
  1344
solve the lemma directly are listed as part of the goal state.
wenzelm@30845
  1345
Cf. associated options in Proof General Isabelle settings menu,
wenzelm@30845
  1346
enabled by default, with reasonable timeout for pathological cases of
wenzelm@30845
  1347
higher-order unification.

* Antiquotation @{lemma} now imitates a regular terminal proof,
wenzelm@27392
  1353
demanding keyword 'by' and supporting the full method expression
wenzelm@27519
  1354
syntax just like the Isar command 'by'.

*** HOL ***
haftmann@27104
  1358
wenzelm@30845
  1359
* Integrated main parts of former image HOL-Complex with HOL.  Entry
wenzelm@30845
  1360
points Main and Complex_Main remain as before.
wenzelm@30845
  1361
wenzelm@30845
  1362
* Logic image HOL-Plain provides a minimal HOL with the most important
wenzelm@30845
  1363
tools available (inductive, datatype, primrec, ...).  This facilitates
wenzelm@30845
  1364
experimentation and tool development.  Note that user applications
wenzelm@30845
  1365
(and library theories) should never refer to anything below theory
wenzelm@30845
  1366
Main, as before.
wenzelm@30845
  1367
wenzelm@30845
  1368
* Logic image HOL-Main stops at theory Main, and thus facilitates
wenzelm@30845
  1369
experimentation due to shorter build times.
wenzelm@30845
  1370
wenzelm@30845
  1371
* Logic image HOL-NSA contains theories of nonstandard analysis which
wenzelm@30845
  1372
were previously part of former HOL-Complex.  Entry point Hyperreal
wenzelm@30845
  1373
remains valid, but theories formerly using Complex_Main should now use
wenzelm@30845
  1374
new entry point Hypercomplex.
wenzelm@30845
  1375
wenzelm@30845
  1376
* Generic ATP manager for Sledgehammer, based on ML threads instead of
wenzelm@30845
  1377
Posix processes.  Avoids potentially expensive forking of the ML
wenzelm@30845
  1378
process.  New thread-based implementation also works on non-Unix
wenzelm@30845
  1379
platforms (Cygwin).  Provers are no longer hardwired, but defined
wenzelm@30845
  1380
within the theory via plain ML wrapper functions.  Basic Sledgehammer
wenzelm@30845
  1381
commands are covered in the isar-ref manual.
wenzelm@30845
  1382
wenzelm@30845
  1383
* Wrapper scripts for remote SystemOnTPTP service allows to use
wenzelm@30845
  1384
sledgehammer without local ATP installation (Vampire etc.). Other
wenzelm@30845
  1385
provers may be included via suitable ML wrappers, see also

  1386
src/HOL/ATP_Linkup.thy.
wenzelm@30845
  1387
wenzelm@30845
  1388
* ATP selection (E/Vampire/Spass) is now via Proof General's settings
wenzelm@30845
  1389
menu.
wenzelm@30845
  1390
wenzelm@30845
  1391
* The metis method no longer fails because the theorem is too trivial
wenzelm@30845
  1392
(contains the empty clause).
wenzelm@30845
  1393
wenzelm@30845
  1394
* The metis method now fails in the usual manner, rather than raising
wenzelm@30845
  1395
an exception, if it determines that it cannot prove the theorem.
wenzelm@30845
  1396
wenzelm@30845
  1397
* Method "coherent" implements a prover for coherent logic (see also
wenzelm@30845
  1398
src/Tools/coherent.ML).
wenzelm@30845
  1399
wenzelm@30845
  1400
* Constants "undefined" and "default" replace "arbitrary".  Usually
wenzelm@30845
  1401
"undefined" is the right choice to replace "arbitrary", though
wenzelm@30845
  1402
logically there is no difference.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
  1403
wenzelm@30845
  1404
* Command "value" now integrates different evaluation mechanisms.  The
wenzelm@30845
  1405
result of the first successful evaluation mechanism is printed.  In
wenzelm@30845
  1406
square brackets a particular named evaluation mechanisms may be
wenzelm@30845
  1407
specified (currently, [SML], [code] or [nbe]).  See further
wenzelm@30845
  1408
src/HOL/ex/Eval_Examples.thy.
wenzelm@30845
  1409
wenzelm@30845
  1410
* Normalization by evaluation now allows non-leftlinear equations.
wenzelm@30845
  1411
Declare with attribute [code nbe].
wenzelm@30845
  1412
wenzelm@30845
  1413
* Methods "case_tac" and "induct_tac" now refer to the very same rules
wenzelm@30845
  1414
as the structured Isar versions "cases" and "induct", cf. the
wenzelm@30845
  1415
corresponding "cases" and "induct" attributes.  Mutual induction rules
wenzelm@30845
  1416
are now presented as a list of individual projections
wenzelm@30845
  1417
(e.g. foo_bar.inducts for types foo and bar); the old format with
wenzelm@30845
  1418
explicit HOL conjunction is no longer supported.  INCOMPATIBILITY, in
wenzelm@30845
  1419
rare situations a different rule is selected --- notably nested tuple
wenzelm@30845
  1420
elimination instead of former prod.exhaust: use explicit (case_tac t
wenzelm@30845
  1421
rule: prod.exhaust) here.
wenzelm@30845
  1422
wenzelm@30845
  1423
* Attributes "cases", "induct", "coinduct" support "del" option.
wenzelm@30845
  1424
wenzelm@30845
  1425
* Removed fact "case_split_thm", which duplicates "case_split".
wenzelm@30845
  1426
wenzelm@30845
  1427
* The option datatype has been moved to a new theory Option.  Renamed
wenzelm@30845
  1428
option_map to Option.map, and o2s to Option.set, INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
  1429
wenzelm@30845
  1430
* New predicate "strict_mono" classifies strict functions on partial
wenzelm@30845
  1431
orders.  With strict functions on linear orders, reasoning about
wenzelm@30845
  1432
(in)equalities is facilitated by theorems "strict_mono_eq",
wenzelm@30845
  1433
"strict_mono_less_eq" and "strict_mono_less".
wenzelm@30845
  1434
wenzelm@30845
  1435

  1460
interval arithmetic.  In the formulas are also the transcendental
wenzelm@30845
  1461
functions sin, cos, tan, atan, ln, exp and the constant pi are

possible), avoiding strange error messages.
wenzelm@30845
  1528
wenzelm@30845

  1531
src/HOL/ex/Termination.thy for examples.
wenzelm@30845
  1532
wenzelm@30845
  1533
* Simplifier: simproc for let expressions now unfolds if bound

variable occurs at most once in let expression body.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
  1535
wenzelm@30845
  1536
* Method "arith": Linear arithmetic now ignores all inequalities when

fast_arith_neq_limit is exceeded, instead of giving up entirely.
wenzelm@30845
  1538
wenzelm@30845

* New attribute "arith" for facts that should always be used
wenzelm@30845
  1540
automatically by arithmetic. It is intended to be used locally in

"bot" in theory Orderings; instantiation of class "complete_lattice"
wenzelm@30845

requires instantiation of classes "top" and "bot".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
  1550
wenzelm@30845
  1551
* Changed definition lemma "less_fun_def" in order to provide an

wenzelm@30845
  1553
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
  1554
wenzelm@30845
  1555
* Theory Orderings: class "wellorder" moved here, with explicit
wenzelm@30845
  1556
induction rule "less_induct" as assumption.  For instantiation of
wenzelm@30845
  1557
"wellorder" by means of predicate "wf", use rule wf_wellorderI.
wenzelm@30845
  1558
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
  1559
wenzelm@30845
  1560
* Theory Orderings: added class "preorder" as superclass of "order".
wenzelm@27793
  1561
INCOMPATIBILITY: Instantiation proofs for order, linorder
wenzelm@27793
  1562
etc. slightly changed.  Some theorems named order_class.* now named

  1563
preorder_class.*.
wenzelm@27793
  1564
wenzelm@30845

"diag" to "Id_on".
wenzelm@30845
  1567

Poly/ML 5.2.1 or later.)
wenzelm@30845
  1823
wenzelm@30845
  1824
* ML bindings produced via Isar commands are stored within the Isar
wenzelm@30845
  1825
context (theory or proof).  Consequently, commands like 'use' and 'ML'
wenzelm@30845
  1826
become thread-safe and work with undo as expected (concerning
wenzelm@30845
  1827
top-level bindings, not side-effects on global references).
wenzelm@30845
  1828
INCOMPATIBILITY, need to provide proper Isar context when invoking the
wenzelm@30845
  1829
compiler at runtime; really global bindings need to be given outside a
wenzelm@30845
  1830
theory.  (Requires Poly/ML 5.2 or later.)
wenzelm@30845
  1831
wenzelm@30845
  1832
* Command 'ML_prf' is analogous to 'ML' but works within a proof
wenzelm@30845
  1833
context.  Top-level ML bindings are stored within the proof context in
wenzelm@30845
  1834
a purely sequential fashion, disregarding the nested proof structure.
wenzelm@30845
  1835
ML bindings introduced by 'ML_prf' are discarded at the end of the
wenzelm@30845
  1836
proof.  (Requires Poly/ML 5.2 or later.)
wenzelm@29161
  1837
wenzelm@30530
  1838
* Simplified ML attribute and method setup, cf. functions Attrib.setup
wenzelm@30845
  1839
and Method.setup, as well as Isar commands 'attribute_setup' and
wenzelm@30547
  1840
'method_setup'.  INCOMPATIBILITY for 'method_setup', need to simplify
wenzelm@30547
  1841
existing code accordingly, or use plain 'setup' together with old
wenzelm@30547
  1842
Method.add_method.
wenzelm@30530
  1843
wenzelm@28294
  1844
* Simplified ML oracle interface Thm.add_oracle promotes 'a -> cterm
wenzelm@28294
  1845
to 'a -> thm, while results are always tagged with an authentic oracle
wenzelm@28294
  1846
name.  The Isar command 'oracle' is now polymorphic, no argument type
wenzelm@28294
  1847
is specified.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to simplify existing oracle code
wenzelm@28294
  1848
accordingly.  Note that extra performance may be gained by producing
wenzelm@28294
  1849
the cterm carefully, avoiding slow Thm.cterm_of.
wenzelm@28294
  1850
wenzelm@30845
  1851
* Simplified interface for defining document antiquotations via
wenzelm@30845
  1852
ThyOutput.antiquotation, ThyOutput.output, and optionally
wenzelm@30845
  1853
ThyOutput.maybe_pretty_source.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to simplify user
wenzelm@30845
  1854
antiquotations accordingly, see src/Pure/Thy/thy_output.ML for common
wenzelm@30845
  1855
examples.
wenzelm@28099
  1856
wenzelm@30395
  1857
* More systematic treatment of long names, abstract name bindings, and
wenzelm@30395
  1858
name space operations.  Basic operations on qualified names have been
wenzelm@30399
  1859
move from structure NameSpace to Long_Name, e.g. Long_Name.base_name,
wenzelm@30395
  1860
Long_Name.append.  Old type bstring has been mostly replaced by
wenzelm@30395
  1861
abstract type binding (see structure Binding), which supports precise
wenzelm@30845
  1862
qualification by packages and local theory targets, as well as proper
wenzelm@30845
  1863
tracking of source positions.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to wrap old
wenzelm@30845
  1864
bstring values into Binding.name, or better pass through abstract
wenzelm@30399
  1865
bindings everywhere.  See further src/Pure/General/long_name.ML,
wenzelm@30395
  1866
src/Pure/General/binding.ML and src/Pure/General/name_space.ML
wenzelm@30395
  1867
wenzelm@28089
  1868
* Result facts (from PureThy.note_thms, ProofContext.note_thms,
wenzelm@28089
  1869
LocalTheory.note etc.) now refer to the *full* internal name, not the
wenzelm@28089
  1870
bstring as before.  INCOMPATIBILITY, not detected by ML type-checking!
wenzelm@28089
  1871
wenzelm@27287
  1872
* Disposed old type and term read functions (Sign.read_def_typ,
wenzelm@27287
  1873
Sign.read_typ, Sign.read_def_terms, Sign.read_term,
wenzelm@27287
  1874
Thm.read_def_cterms, Thm.read_cterm etc.).  INCOMPATIBILITY, should
wenzelm@27287
  1875
use regular Syntax.read_typ, Syntax.read_term, Syntax.read_typ_global,
wenzelm@27269
  1876
Syntax.read_term_global etc.; see also OldGoals.read_term as last
wenzelm@27269
  1877
resort for legacy applications.
wenzelm@27269
  1878
wenzelm@30609
  1879
* Disposed old declarations, tactics, tactic combinators that refer to
wenzelm@30609
  1880
the simpset or claset of an implicit theory (such as Addsimps,
wenzelm@30609
  1881
Simp_tac, SIMPSET).  INCOMPATIBILITY, should use @{simpset} etc. in
wenzelm@30609
  1882
embedded ML text, or local_simpset_of with a proper context passed as
wenzelm@30609
  1883
explicit runtime argument.
wenzelm@30609
  1884
wenzelm@30845
  1885
* Rules and tactics that read instantiations (read_instantiate,
wenzelm@30845
  1886
res_inst_tac, thin_tac, subgoal_tac etc.) now demand a proper proof
wenzelm@30845
  1887
context, which is required for parsing and type-checking.  Moreover,
wenzelm@30845
  1888
the variables are specified as plain indexnames, not string encodings
wenzelm@30845
  1889
thereof.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
  1890
wenzelm@30845
  1891
* Generic Toplevel.add_hook interface allows to analyze the result of
wenzelm@30845
  1892
transactions.  E.g. see src/Pure/ProofGeneral/proof_general_pgip.ML
wenzelm@30845
  1893
for theorem dependency output of transactions resulting in a new
wenzelm@30845
  1894
theory state.
wenzelm@30845
  1895
wenzelm@30845
  1896
* ML antiquotations: block-structured compilation context indicated by
wenzelm@27391
  1897
\<lbrace> ... \<rbrace>; additional antiquotation forms:
wenzelm@27391
  1898
wenzelm@30845
  1899
  @{binding name}                         - basic name binding
wenzelm@27519
  1900
  @{let ?pat = term}                      - term abbreviation (HO matching)
wenzelm@27519
  1901
  @{note name = fact}                     - fact abbreviation
wenzelm@27519
  1902
  @{thm fact}                             - singleton fact (with attributes)
wenzelm@27519
  1903
  @{thms fact}                            - general fact (with attributes)
wenzelm@27519
  1904
  @{lemma prop by method}                 - singleton goal
wenzelm@27519
  1905
  @{lemma prop by meth1 meth2}            - singleton goal
wenzelm@27519
  1906
  @{lemma prop1 ... propN by method}      - general goal
wenzelm@27519
  1907
  @{lemma prop1 ... propN by meth1 meth2} - general goal
wenzelm@27519
  1908
  @{lemma (open) ...}                     - open derivation

wenzelm@28248
  1913
* The Isabelle "emacs" tool provides a specific interface to invoke
wenzelm@28248
  1914
Proof General / Emacs, with more explicit failure if that is not
wenzelm@28248
  1915
installed (the old isabelle-interface script silently falls back on
wenzelm@28248
  1916
isabelle-process).  The PROOFGENERAL_HOME setting determines the
wenzelm@28248
  1917
installation location of the Proof General distribution.
wenzelm@28248
  1918
wenzelm@27979
  1919
* Isabelle/lib/classes/Pure.jar provides basic support to integrate
wenzelm@27979
  1920
the Isabelle process into a JVM/Scala application.  See
wenzelm@27979
  1921
Isabelle/lib/jedit/plugin for a minimal example.  (The obsolete Java
wenzelm@27979
  1922
process wrapper has been discontinued.)
wenzelm@27979
  1923
wenzelm@30845
  1924
* Added homegrown Isabelle font with unicode layout, see lib/fonts.
wenzelm@30845
  1925
wenzelm@30845
  1926
* Various status messages (with exact source position information) are
wenzelm@27979
  1927
emitted, if proper markup print mode is enabled.  This allows
wenzelm@27979
  1928
user-interface components to provide detailed feedback on internal
wenzelm@27979
  1929
prover operations.

*** General ***
wenzelm@25522
  1937
wenzelm@27061
  1938
* The Isabelle/Isar Reference Manual (isar-ref) has been reorganized
wenzelm@27061
  1939
and updated, with formally checked references as hyperlinks.
wenzelm@27061
  1940
wenzelm@25994
  1941
* Theory loader: use_thy (and similar operations) no longer set the
wenzelm@25994
  1942
implicit ML context, which was occasionally hard to predict and in
wenzelm@25994
  1943
conflict with concurrency.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use ML within Isar which
wenzelm@25994
  1944
provides a proper context already.
wenzelm@25994
  1945
wenzelm@26323
  1946
* Theory loader: old-style ML proof scripts being *attached* to a thy
wenzelm@26323
  1947
file are no longer supported.  INCOMPATIBILITY, regular 'uses' and
wenzelm@26323
  1948
'use' within a theory file will do the job.
wenzelm@26323
  1949
wenzelm@26650
  1950
* Name space merge now observes canonical order, i.e. the second space
wenzelm@26650
  1951
is inserted into the first one, while existing entries in the first
wenzelm@26659
  1952
space take precedence.  INCOMPATIBILITY in rare situations, may try to
wenzelm@26650
  1953
swap theory imports.
wenzelm@26650
  1954
wenzelm@27067
  1955
* Syntax: symbol \<chi> is now considered a letter.  Potential
wenzelm@27067
  1956
INCOMPATIBILITY in identifier syntax etc.
wenzelm@27067
  1957
wenzelm@27067
  1958
* Outer syntax: string tokens no longer admit escaped white space,
wenzelm@27067
  1959
which was an accidental (undocumented) feature.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use
wenzelm@27067
  1960
white space without escapes.
wenzelm@27067
  1961
wenzelm@27067
  1962
* Outer syntax: string tokens may contain arbitrary character codes
wenzelm@27067
  1963
specified via 3 decimal digits (as in SML).  E.g. "foo\095bar" for
wenzelm@27067
  1964
"foo_bar".

* Context-dependent token translations.  Default setup reverts locally
wenzelm@26718
  1970
fixed variables, and adds hilite markup for undeclared frees.
wenzelm@26718
  1971
berghofe@26681
  1972
* Unused theorems can be found using the new command 'unused_thms'.
berghofe@26681
  1973
There are three ways of invoking it:
berghofe@26681
  1974
berghofe@26681
  1975
(1) unused_thms
berghofe@26681
  1976
     Only finds unused theorems in the current theory.
berghofe@26681
  1977
berghofe@26681
  1978
(2) unused_thms thy_1 ... thy_n -
berghofe@26681
  1979
     Finds unused theorems in the current theory and all of its ancestors,
berghofe@26681
  1980
     excluding the theories thy_1 ... thy_n and all of their ancestors.
berghofe@26681
  1981
berghofe@26681
  1982
(3) unused_thms thy_1 ... thy_n - thy'_1 ... thy'_m
berghofe@26681
  1983
     Finds unused theorems in the theories thy'_1 ... thy'_m and all of
berghofe@26681
  1984
     their ancestors, excluding the theories thy_1 ... thy_n and all of
berghofe@26681
  1985
     their ancestors.
berghofe@26681
  1986
wenzelm@26718
  1987
In order to increase the readability of the list produced by
wenzelm@26718
  1988
unused_thms, theorems that have been created by a particular instance
wenzelm@26874
  1989
of a theory command such as 'inductive' or 'function' are considered
wenzelm@26874
  1990
to belong to the same "group", meaning that if at least one theorem in
wenzelm@26718
  1991
this group is used, the other theorems in the same group are no longer
wenzelm@26718
  1992
reported as unused.  Moreover, if all theorems in the group are
wenzelm@26718
  1993
unused, only one theorem in the group is displayed.
wenzelm@26718
  1994
wenzelm@26718
  1995
Note that proof objects have to be switched on in order for
wenzelm@26718
  1996
unused_thms to work properly (i.e. !proofs must be >= 1, which is
wenzelm@26874
  1997
usually the case when using Proof General with the default settings).
berghofe@26681
  1998
wenzelm@26650
  1999
* Authentic naming of facts disallows ad-hoc overwriting of previous
wenzelm@26650
  2000
theorems within the same name space.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to remove
wenzelm@26650
  2001
duplicate fact bindings, or even accidental fact duplications.  Note
wenzelm@26650
  2002
that tools may maintain dynamically scoped facts systematically, using
wenzelm@26650
  2003
PureThy.add_thms_dynamic.
wenzelm@26650
  2004
wenzelm@26660
  2005
* Command 'hide' now allows to hide from "fact" name space as well.
wenzelm@26660
  2006
wenzelm@26496
  2007
* Eliminated destructive theorem database, simpset, claset, and
wenzelm@26496
  2008
clasimpset.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY, really need to observe linear
wenzelm@26496
  2009
update of theories within ML code.
wenzelm@26479
  2010
wenzelm@26955
  2011
* Eliminated theory ProtoPure and CPure, leaving just one Pure theory.
wenzelm@26955
  2012
INCOMPATIBILITY, object-logics depending on former Pure require
wenzelm@26955
  2013
additional setup PureThy.old_appl_syntax_setup; object-logics
wenzelm@26955
  2014
depending on former CPure need to refer to Pure.
wenzelm@26650
  2015
wenzelm@26495
  2016
* Commands 'use' and 'ML' are now purely functional, operating on
wenzelm@26479
  2017
theory/local_theory.  Removed former 'ML_setup' (on theory), use 'ML'
wenzelm@26479
  2018
instead.  Added 'ML_val' as mere diagnostic replacement for 'ML'.
wenzelm@26479
  2019
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@26479
  2020
wenzelm@26874
  2021
* Command 'setup': discontinued implicit version with ML reference.
wenzelm@26434
  2022
wenzelm@25970
  2023
* Instantiation target allows for simultaneous specification of class
wenzelm@25970
  2024
instance operations together with an instantiation proof.
wenzelm@25970
  2025
Type-checking phase allows to refer to class operations uniformly.

wenzelm@26201
  2031
background context (locale etc.).  Affects `prop` notation and method
wenzelm@26201
  2032
"fact".  INCOMPATIBILITY: need to name facts explicitly in rare
wenzelm@26201
  2033
situations.
wenzelm@26201
  2034
wenzelm@26925

* Method "cases", "induct", "coinduct": removed obsolete/undocumented
wenzelm@26925
  2036
"(open)" option, which used to expose internal bound variables to the
wenzelm@26925
  2037
proof text.
wenzelm@26925
  2038
wenzelm@26925
  2039
* Isar statements: removed obsolete case "rule_context".
wenzelm@26925
  2040
INCOMPATIBILITY, better use explicit fixes/assumes.
wenzelm@26925
  2041
wenzelm@26874
  2042
* Locale proofs: default proof step now includes 'unfold_locales';
wenzelm@26874
  2043
hence 'proof' without argument may be used to unfold locale
wenzelm@26874
  2044
predicates.

* Simplified pdfsetup.sty: color/hyperref is used unconditionally for
wenzelm@26914
  2050
both pdf and dvi (hyperlinks usually work in xdvi as well); removed
wenzelm@26914
  2051
obsolete thumbpdf setup (contemporary PDF viewers do this on the

  2083
from well-founded induction and completeness of patterns. This factors
wenzelm@27067
  2084
out some operations that are done internally by the function package
wenzelm@27067
  2085
and makes them available separately.  See
wenzelm@27067

src/HOL/ex/Induction_Scheme.thy for examples.

* More flexible generation of measure functions for termination
wenzelm@27067
  2089
proofs: Measure functions can be declared by proving a rule of the
wenzelm@27067
  2090
form "is_measure f" and giving it the [measure_function] attribute.
wenzelm@27067
  2091
The "is_measure" predicate is logically meaningless (always true), and
wenzelm@27067
  2092
just guides the heuristic.  To find suitable measure functions, the
wenzelm@27067
  2093
termination prover sets up the goal "is_measure ?f" of the appropriate
wenzelm@27067
  2094
type and generates all solutions by prolog-style backwards proof using
wenzelm@27067
  2095
the declared rules.
wenzelm@27067
  2096
wenzelm@27067
  2097
This setup also deals with rules like 
wenzelm@27067
  2098
wenzelm@27067
  2099
  "is_measure f ==> is_measure (list_size f)"
wenzelm@27067
  2100
wenzelm@27067
  2101
which accommodates nested datatypes that recurse through lists.
wenzelm@27067
  2102
Similar rules are predeclared for products and option types.

berghofe@26964
  2111
  - Some definitions of overloaded operators on sets can now be proved
wenzelm@27008
  2112
    using the definitions of the operators on => and bool.  Therefore,
wenzelm@27008
  2113
    the following theorems have been renamed:

  2124
  - Due to the incompleteness of the HO unification algorithm, some
berghofe@26964
  2125
    rules such as subst may require manual instantiation, if some of

  2134
    no longer works (due to the incompleteness of the HO unification

berghofe@26964
  2148
wenzelm@27008
  2149
    no longer works (for similar reasons as the previous example) and
wenzelm@27008

*** General ***
wenzelm@17754
  2360
wenzelm@22826
  2361
* More uniform information about legacy features, notably a
wenzelm@22826
  2362
warning/error of "Legacy feature: ...", depending on the state of the
wenzelm@23367
  2363
tolerate_legacy_features flag (default true). FUTURE INCOMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@23367
  2364
legacy features will disappear eventually.
wenzelm@22826
  2365
wenzelm@17918
  2366
* Theory syntax: the header format ``theory A = B + C:'' has been
wenzelm@17918
  2367
discontinued in favour of ``theory A imports B C begin''.  Use isatool
wenzelm@17918
  2368
fixheaders to convert existing theory files.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17918
  2369
wenzelm@17918
  2370
* Theory syntax: the old non-Isar theory file format has been
wenzelm@17918
  2371
discontinued altogether.  Note that ML proof scripts may still be used
wenzelm@17918
  2372
with Isar theories; migration is usually quite simple with the ML
wenzelm@17918
  2373
function use_legacy_bindings.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17918
  2374
wenzelm@22871
  2375
* Theory syntax: some popular names (e.g. 'class', 'declaration',
wenzelm@22871
  2376
'fun', 'help', 'if') are now keywords.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use double
wenzelm@22871
  2377
quotes.
wenzelm@19814
  2378
wenzelm@23888
  2379
* Theory loader: be more serious about observing the static theory
wenzelm@23888
  2380
header specifications (including optional directories), but not the
wenzelm@24172
  2381
accidental file locations of previously successful loads.  The strict
wenzelm@24172
  2382
update policy of former update_thy is now already performed by
wenzelm@24172
  2383
use_thy, so the former has been removed; use_thys updates several
wenzelm@24172
  2384
theories simultaneously, just as 'imports' within a theory header
wenzelm@24172
  2385
specification, but without merging the results.  Potential
wenzelm@24172
  2386
INCOMPATIBILITY: may need to refine theory headers and commands
wenzelm@24172
  2387
ROOT.ML which depend on load order.
wenzelm@23888
  2388
wenzelm@23888
  2389
* Theory loader: optional support for content-based file
wenzelm@23888
  2390
identification, instead of the traditional scheme of full physical
wenzelm@23889
  2391
path plus date stamp; configured by the ISABELLE_FILE_IDENT setting
wenzelm@23888
  2392
(cf. the system manual).  The new scheme allows to work with
wenzelm@23888
  2393
non-finished theories in persistent session images, such that source
wenzelm@23888
  2394
files may be moved later on without requiring reloads.
wenzelm@23888
  2395
wenzelm@24187
  2396
* Theory loader: old-style ML proof scripts being *attached* to a thy
wenzelm@24187
  2397
file (with the same base name as the theory) are considered a legacy
wenzelm@24800
  2398
feature, which will disappear eventually. Even now, the theory loader
wenzelm@24800
  2399
no longer maintains dependencies on such files.
wenzelm@24800
  2400
wenzelm@24800
  2401
* Syntax: the scope for resolving ambiguities via type-inference is
wenzelm@24800
  2402
now limited to individual terms, instead of whole simultaneous
wenzelm@24234
  2403
specifications as before. This greatly reduces the complexity of the
wenzelm@24234
  2404
syntax module and improves flexibility by separating parsing and
wenzelm@24234
  2405
type-checking. INCOMPATIBILITY: additional type-constraints (explicit
wenzelm@24234
  2406
'fixes' etc.) are required in rare situations.
wenzelm@24234
  2407
wenzelm@25034
  2408
* Syntax: constants introduced by new-style packages ('definition',
wenzelm@25034
  2409
'abbreviation' etc.) are passed through the syntax module in
wenzelm@25034
  2410
``authentic mode''. This means that associated mixfix annotations
wenzelm@25034
  2411
really stick to such constants, independently of potential name space
wenzelm@25034
  2412
ambiguities introduced later on. INCOMPATIBILITY: constants in parse
wenzelm@25034
  2413
trees are represented slightly differently, may need to adapt syntax
wenzelm@25034
  2414
translations accordingly. Use CONST marker in 'translations' and
wenzelm@25034
  2415
@{const_syntax} antiquotation in 'parse_translation' etc.
wenzelm@25034
  2416
wenzelm@17981
  2417
* Legacy goal package: reduced interface to the bare minimum required
wenzelm@17981
  2418
to keep existing proof scripts running.  Most other user-level
wenzelm@17981
  2419
functions are now part of the OldGoals structure, which is *not* open
wenzelm@17981
  2420
by default (consider isatool expandshort before open OldGoals).
wenzelm@17981
  2421
Removed top_sg, prin, printyp, pprint_term/typ altogether, because
wenzelm@17981
  2422
these tend to cause confusion about the actual goal (!) context being
wenzelm@17981
  2423
used here, which is not necessarily the same as the_context().
wenzelm@17918
  2424
wenzelm@23379
  2425
* Command 'find_theorems': supports "*" wild-card in "name:"
wenzelm@23379
  2426
criterion; "with_dups" option.  Certain ProofGeneral versions might
wenzelm@23379
  2427
support a specific search form (see ProofGeneral/CHANGES).
webertj@22965
  2428
wenzelm@20370
  2429
* The ``prems limit'' option (cf. ProofContext.prems_limit) is now -1
wenzelm@20370
  2430
by default, which means that "prems" (and also "fixed variables") are
wenzelm@20370
  2431
suppressed from proof state output.  Note that the ProofGeneral
wenzelm@20370
  2432
settings mechanism allows to change and save options persistently, but
wenzelm@20370
  2433
older versions of Isabelle will fail to start up if a negative prems
wenzelm@20370
  2434
limit is imposed.
wenzelm@20370
  2435
wenzelm@21308
  2436
* Local theory targets may be specified by non-nested blocks of
wenzelm@21308
  2437
``context/locale/class ... begin'' followed by ``end''.  The body may
wenzelm@21308
  2438
contain definitions, theorems etc., including any derived mechanism
wenzelm@21308
  2439
that has been implemented on top of these primitives.  This concept
wenzelm@21308
  2440
generalizes the existing ``theorem (in ...)'' towards more versatility
wenzelm@21308
  2441
and scalability.
wenzelm@21308
  2442
wenzelm@21960
  2443
* Proof General interface: proper undo of final 'end' command;
wenzelm@21960
  2444
discontinued Isabelle/classic mode (ML proof scripts).
wenzelm@21960
  2445

wenzelm@17865
  2447
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@17865
  2448
wenzelm@21717
  2449
* Added antiquotation @{theory name} which prints the given name,
wenzelm@21717
  2450
after checking that it refers to a valid ancestor theory in the
wenzelm@21717
  2451
current context.
haftmann@21339
  2452
wenzelm@17869
  2453
* Added antiquotations @{ML_type text} and @{ML_struct text} which
wenzelm@17869
  2454
check the given source text as ML type/structure, printing verbatim.
wenzelm@17865
  2455
wenzelm@21717
  2456
* Added antiquotation @{abbrev "c args"} which prints the abbreviation
wenzelm@21717
  2457
"c args == rhs" given in the current context.  (Any number of
wenzelm@21735
  2458
arguments may be given on the LHS.)

*** Pure ***
wenzelm@17779
  2462
wenzelm@24800
  2463
* The 'class' package offers a combination of axclass and locale to
wenzelm@25129
  2464
achieve Haskell-like type classes in Isabelle.  Definitions and
wenzelm@25129
  2465
theorems within a class context produce both relative results (with
wenzelm@25129
  2466
implicit parameters according to the locale context), and polymorphic
wenzelm@25129
  2467
constants with qualified polymorphism (according to the class
wenzelm@25129
  2468
context).  Within the body context of a 'class' target, a separate
wenzelm@25129
  2469
syntax layer ("user space type system") takes care of converting
wenzelm@25129
  2470
between global polymorphic consts and internal locale representation.
wenzelm@25177
  2471
See src/HOL/ex/Classpackage.thy for examples (as well as main HOL).

"isatool doc classes" provides a tutorial.

  2474
* Generic code generator framework allows to generate executable
wenzelm@24800
  2475
code for ML and Haskell (including Isabelle classes).  A short usage
wenzelm@24800
  2476
sketch:
haftmann@20188
  2477
haftmann@20188
  2478
    internal compilation:
haftmann@25199
  2479
        export_code <list of constants (term syntax)> in SML
haftmann@20453
  2480
    writing SML code to a file:
haftmann@25199
  2481
        export_code <list of constants (term syntax)> in SML <filename>
haftmann@22735
  2482
    writing OCaml code to a file:
haftmann@25199
  2483
        export_code <list of constants (term syntax)> in OCaml <filename>
haftmann@20188
  2484
    writing Haskell code to a bunch of files:
haftmann@25199
  2485
        export_code <list of constants (term syntax)> in Haskell <filename>
haftmann@25199
  2486
haftmann@25199
  2487
    evaluating closed propositions to True/False using code generation:
haftmann@25184
  2488
        method ``eval''
haftmann@25184
  2489
haftmann@25184
  2490
Reasonable default setup of framework in HOL.
haftmann@20453
  2491
haftmann@20453
  2492
Theorem attributs for selecting and transforming function equations theorems:
haftmann@20453
  2493
haftmann@22845
  2494
    [code fun]:        select a theorem as function equation for a specific constant
haftmann@22845
  2495
    [code fun del]:    deselect a theorem as function equation for a specific constant
haftmann@22845
  2496
    [code inline]:     select an equation theorem for unfolding (inlining) in place
haftmann@22845
  2497
    [code inline del]: deselect an equation theorem for unfolding (inlining) in place
haftmann@20453
  2498
haftmann@22735
  2499
User-defined serializations (target in {SML, OCaml, Haskell}):
haftmann@20453
  2500
haftmann@20453
  2501
    code_const <and-list of constants (term syntax)>
haftmann@20453
  2502
      {(target) <and-list of const target syntax>}+
haftmann@20453
  2503
haftmann@20453
  2504
    code_type <and-list of type constructors>
haftmann@20453
  2505
      {(target) <and-list of type target syntax>}+
haftmann@20453
  2506
haftmann@20453
  2507
    code_instance <and-list of instances>
haftmann@20453
  2508
      {(target)}+
haftmann@20453
  2509
        where instance ::= <type constructor> :: <class>
haftmann@20453
  2510
haftmann@20453
  2511
    code_class <and_list of classes>
haftmann@20453
  2512
      {(target) <and-list of class target syntax>}+
haftmann@20453
  2513
        where class target syntax ::= <class name> {where {<classop> == <target syntax>}+}?
haftmann@20453
  2514
haftmann@25199
  2515
code_instance and code_class only are effective to target Haskell.
haftmann@22735
  2516
wenzelm@25177
  2517
For example usage see src/HOL/ex/Codegenerator.thy and
wenzelm@25177
  2518
src/HOL/ex/Codegenerator_Pretty.thy.  A separate tutorial on code
wenzelm@24800
  2519
generation from Isabelle/HOL theories is available via "isatool doc
wenzelm@24800
  2520
codegen".
haftmann@20188
  2521
wenzelm@25129
  2522
* Code generator: consts in 'consts_code' Isar commands are now
wenzelm@25129
  2523
referred to by usual term syntax (including optional type
wenzelm@25129
  2524
annotations).
wenzelm@25129
  2525
wenzelm@19254
  2526
* Command 'no_translations' removes translation rules from theory
wenzelm@19254
  2527
syntax.
wenzelm@19254
  2528
wenzelm@19625
  2529
* Overloaded definitions are now actually checked for acyclic
wenzelm@19714
  2530
dependencies.  The overloading scheme is slightly more general than
wenzelm@19714
  2531
that of Haskell98, although Isabelle does not demand an exact
wenzelm@19714
  2532
correspondence to type class and instance declarations.
wenzelm@19714
  2533
INCOMPATIBILITY, use ``defs (unchecked overloaded)'' to admit more
wenzelm@19714
  2534
exotic versions of overloading -- at the discretion of the user!
wenzelm@19711
  2535
wenzelm@19711
  2536
Polymorphic constants are represented via type arguments, i.e. the
wenzelm@19711
  2537
instantiation that matches an instance against the most general
wenzelm@19711
  2538
declaration given in the signature.  For example, with the declaration
wenzelm@19711
  2539
c :: 'a => 'a => 'a, an instance c :: nat => nat => nat is represented
wenzelm@19711
  2540
as c(nat).  Overloading is essentially simultaneous structural
wenzelm@19711
  2541
recursion over such type arguments.  Incomplete specification patterns
wenzelm@19714
  2542
impose global constraints on all occurrences, e.g. c('a * 'a) on the
wenzelm@19715
  2543
LHS means that more general c('a * 'b) will be disallowed on any RHS.
wenzelm@19714
  2544
Command 'print_theory' outputs the normalized system of recursive
wenzelm@19714
  2545
equations, see section "definitions".
wenzelm@19625
  2546
wenzelm@24086
  2547
* Configuration options are maintained within the theory or proof
wenzelm@24086
  2548
context (with name and type bool/int/string), providing a very simple
wenzelm@24086
  2549
interface to a poor-man's version of general context data.  Tools may
wenzelm@24110
  2550
declare options in ML (e.g. using Attrib.config_int) and then refer to
wenzelm@24110
  2551
these values using Config.get etc.  Users may change options via an
wenzelm@24110
  2552
associated attribute of the same name.  This form of context
wenzelm@24110
  2553
declaration works particularly well with commands 'declare' or
wenzelm@24110
  2554
'using', for example ``declare [[foo = 42]]''.  Thus it has become
wenzelm@24110
  2555
very easy to avoid global references, which would not observe Isar
wenzelm@24110
  2556
toplevel undo/redo and fail to work with multithreading.
wenzelm@24086
  2557
wenzelm@24172
  2558
Various global ML references of Pure and HOL have been turned into
wenzelm@24172
  2559
configuration options:
wenzelm@24172
  2560
wenzelm@24172

  Unify.search_bound		unify_search_bound
wenzelm@24172

  Blast.depth_limit		blast_depth_limit
wenzelm@24172
  2567
  DatatypeProp.dtK		datatype_distinctness_limit
wenzelm@24172
  2568
  fast_arith_neq_limit  	fast_arith_neq_limit
wenzelm@24172

  fast_arith_split_limit	fast_arith_split_limit
wenzelm@24172
  2570
wenzelm@24086
  2571
* Named collections of theorems may be easily installed as context
wenzelm@24800
  2572
data using the functor NamedThmsFun (see also
wenzelm@24086
  2573
src/Pure/Tools/named_thms.ML).  The user may add or delete facts via
wenzelm@24110
  2574
attributes; there is also a toplevel print command.  This facility is
wenzelm@24110
  2575
just a common case of general context data, which is the preferred way
wenzelm@24110
  2576
for anything more complex than just a list of facts in canonical
wenzelm@24110
  2577
order.
wenzelm@24086
  2578
wenzelm@24032
  2579
* Isar: command 'declaration' augments a local theory by generic
wenzelm@24032
  2580
declaration functions written in ML.  This enables arbitrary content
wenzelm@24032
  2581
being added to the context, depending on a morphism that tells the
wenzelm@24032
  2582
difference of the original declaration context wrt. the application
wenzelm@24032
  2583
context encountered later on.
wenzelm@24032
  2584
wenzelm@24032
  2585
* Isar: proper interfaces for simplification procedures.  Command
wenzelm@24032
  2586
'simproc_setup' declares named simprocs (with match patterns, and body
wenzelm@24032
  2587
text in ML).  Attribute "simproc" adds/deletes simprocs in the current
wenzelm@24032
  2588
context.  ML antiquotation @{simproc name} retrieves named simprocs.
wenzelm@24032
  2589
wenzelm@24032
  2590
* Isar: an extra pair of brackets around attribute declarations
wenzelm@24032
  2591
abbreviates a theorem reference involving an internal dummy fact,
wenzelm@24032
  2592
which will be ignored later --- only the effect of the attribute on
wenzelm@24032
  2593
the background context will persist.  This form of in-place
wenzelm@24032
  2594
declarations is particularly useful with commands like 'declare' and
wenzelm@24032
  2595
'using', for example ``have A using [[simproc a]] by simp''.
wenzelm@24032
  2596
wenzelm@23369
  2597
* Isar: method "assumption" (and implicit closing of subproofs) now
wenzelm@23369
  2598
takes simple non-atomic goal assumptions into account: after applying
wenzelm@23369
  2599
an assumption as a rule the resulting subgoals are solved by atomic
wenzelm@23369
  2600
assumption steps.  This is particularly useful to finish 'obtain'
wenzelm@23369
  2601
goals, such as "!!x. (!!x. P x ==> thesis) ==> P x ==> thesis",
wenzelm@23369
  2602
without referring to the original premise "!!x. P x ==> thesis" in the
wenzelm@23369
  2603
Isar proof context.  POTENTIAL INCOMPATIBILITY: method "assumption" is
wenzelm@23369
  2604
more permissive.
wenzelm@23369
  2605
wenzelm@23369
  2606
* Isar: implicit use of prems from the Isar proof context is
wenzelm@23369
  2607
considered a legacy feature.  Common applications like ``have A .''
wenzelm@23369
  2608
may be replaced by ``have A by fact'' or ``note `A`''.  In general,
wenzelm@23369
  2609
referencing facts explicitly here improves readability and
wenzelm@23369
  2610
maintainability of proof texts.
wenzelm@23369
  2611
wenzelm@17865
  2612
* Isar: improper proof element 'guess' is like 'obtain', but derives
wenzelm@17865
  2613
the obtained context from the course of reasoning!  For example:
wenzelm@17865
  2614
wenzelm@17865
  2615
  assume "EX x y. A x & B y"   -- "any previous fact"
wenzelm@17865
  2616
  then guess x and y by clarify
wenzelm@17865
  2617
wenzelm@17865
  2618
This technique is potentially adventurous, depending on the facts and
wenzelm@17865
  2619
proof tools being involved here.
