*** General ***
wenzelm@14655
     8
nipkow@15130
     9
* Theory headers: the new header syntax for Isar theories is
nipkow@15130
    10
nipkow@15130
    11
  theory <name>
wenzelm@16234
    12
  imports <theory1> ... <theoryN>
wenzelm@16234
    13
  uses <file1> ... <fileM>
nipkow@15130
    14
  begin
nipkow@15130
    15
wenzelm@16234
    16
where the 'uses' part is optional.  The previous syntax
wenzelm@16234
    17
wenzelm@16234
    18
  theory <name> = <theory1> + ... + <theoryN>:
wenzelm@16234
    19
wenzelm@16717
    20
will disappear in the next release.  Use isatool fixheaders to convert
wenzelm@16717
    21
existing theory files.  Note that there is no change in ancient
wenzelm@17371
    22
non-Isar theories now, but these will disappear soon.
nipkow@15130
    23
berghofe@15475
    24
* Theory loader: parent theories can now also be referred to via
wenzelm@16234
    25
relative and absolute paths.
wenzelm@16234
    26
wenzelm@17408
    27
* Command 'find_theorems' searches for a list of criteria instead of a
wenzelm@17408
    28
list of constants. Known criteria are: intro, elim, dest, name:string,
wenzelm@17408
    29
simp:term, and any term. Criteria can be preceded by '-' to select
wenzelm@17408
    30
theorems that do not match. Intro, elim, dest select theorems that
wenzelm@17408
    31
match the current goal, name:s selects theorems whose fully qualified
wenzelm@17408
    32
name contain s, and simp:term selects all simplification rules whose
wenzelm@17408
    33
lhs match term.  Any other term is interpreted as pattern and selects
wenzelm@17408
    34
all theorems matching the pattern. Available in ProofGeneral under
wenzelm@17408
    35
'ProofGeneral -> Find Theorems' or C-c C-f.  Example:
wenzelm@16234
    36
wenzelm@17275
    37
  C-c C-f (100) "(_::nat) + _ + _" intro -name: "HOL."
wenzelm@16234
    38
wenzelm@16234
    39
prints the last 100 theorems matching the pattern "(_::nat) + _ + _",
wenzelm@16234
    40
matching the current goal as introduction rule and not having "HOL."
wenzelm@16234
    41
in their name (i.e. not being defined in theory HOL).
wenzelm@16013
    42
wenzelm@17408
    43
* Command 'thms_containing' has been discontinued in favour of
wenzelm@17408
    44
'find_theorems'; INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17408
    45
wenzelm@17385
    46
* Communication with Proof General is now 8bit clean, which means that
wenzelm@17385
    47
Unicode text in UTF-8 encoding may be used within theory texts (both
wenzelm@17408
    48
formal and informal parts).  Cf. option -U of the Isabelle Proof
wenzelm@17408
    49
General interface; HOL/ex/Hebrew.thy provides a simple example.
wenzelm@17385
    50
wenzelm@17425
    51
* Improved efficiency of the Simplifier and, to a lesser degree, the
wenzelm@17425
    52
Classical Reasoner.  Typical big applications run around 2 times
wenzelm@17425
    53
faster.

wenzelm@15703
    56
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@15703
    57
wenzelm@16234
    58
* Commands 'display_drafts' and 'print_drafts' perform simple output
wenzelm@16234
    59
of raw sources.  Only those symbols that do not require additional
wenzelm@16234
    60
LaTeX packages (depending on comments in isabellesym.sty) are
wenzelm@16234
    61
displayed properly, everything else is left verbatim.  isatool display
wenzelm@16234
    62
and isatool print are used as front ends (these are subject to the
wenzelm@16234
    63
DVI/PDF_VIEWER and PRINT_COMMAND settings, respectively).
wenzelm@16234
    64
wenzelm@17047
    65
* Command tags control specific markup of certain regions of text,
wenzelm@17047
    66
notably folding and hiding.  Predefined tags include "theory" (for
wenzelm@17047
    67
theory begin and end), "proof" for proof commands, and "ML" for
wenzelm@17047
    68
commands involving ML code; the additional tags "visible" and
wenzelm@17047
    69
"invisible" are unused by default.  Users may give explicit tag
wenzelm@17047
    70
specifications in the text, e.g. ''by %invisible (auto)''.  The
wenzelm@17047
    71
interpretation of tags is determined by the LaTeX job during document
wenzelm@17047
    72
preparation: see option -V of isatool usedir, or options -n and -t of
wenzelm@17047
    73
isatool document, or even the LaTeX macros \isakeeptag, \isafoldtag,
wenzelm@17047
    74
\isadroptag.
wenzelm@17047
    75
wenzelm@17047
    76
Several document versions may be produced at the same time via isatool
wenzelm@17047
    77
usedir (the generated index.html will link all of them).  Typical
wenzelm@17047
    78
specifications include ''-V document=theory,proof,ML'' to present
wenzelm@17047
    79
theory/proof/ML parts faithfully, ''-V outline=/proof,/ML'' to fold
wenzelm@17047
    80
proof and ML commands, and ''-V mutilated=-theory,-proof,-ML'' to omit
wenzelm@17047
    81
these parts without any formal replacement text.  The Isabelle site
wenzelm@17047
    82
default settings produce ''document'' and ''outline'' versions as
wenzelm@17047
    83
specified above.
wenzelm@16234
    84
haftmann@17402
    85
* Several new antiquotations:
wenzelm@15979
    86
wenzelm@15979
    87
  @{term_type term} prints a term with its type annotated;
wenzelm@15979
    88
wenzelm@15979
    89
  @{typeof term} prints the type of a term;
wenzelm@15979
    90
wenzelm@16234
    91
  @{const const} is the same as @{term const}, but checks that the
wenzelm@16234
    92
  argument is a known logical constant;
wenzelm@15979
    93
wenzelm@15979
    94
  @{term_style style term} and @{thm_style style thm} print a term or
wenzelm@16234
    95
  theorem applying a "style" to it
wenzelm@16234
    96
wenzelm@17117
    97
  @{ML text}
wenzelm@17117
    98
wenzelm@16234
    99
Predefined styles are 'lhs' and 'rhs' printing the lhs/rhs of
wenzelm@16234
   100
definitions, equations, inequations etc., 'concl' printing only the
schirmer@17393
   101
conclusion of a meta-logical statement theorem, and 'prem1' .. 'prem19'
wenzelm@16234
   102
to print the specified premise.  TermStyle.add_style provides an ML
wenzelm@16234
   103
interface for introducing further styles.  See also the "LaTeX Sugar"
wenzelm@17117
   104
document practical applications.  The ML antiquotation prints
wenzelm@17117
   105
type-checked ML expressions verbatim.
wenzelm@16234
   106
wenzelm@17259
   107
* Markup commands 'chapter', 'section', 'subsection', 'subsubsection',
wenzelm@17259
   108
and 'text' support optional locale specification '(in loc)', which
wenzelm@17269
   109
specifies the default context for interpreting antiquotations.  For
wenzelm@17269
   110
example: 'text (in lattice) {* @{thm inf_assoc}*}'.
wenzelm@17259
   111
wenzelm@17259
   112
* Option 'locale=NAME' of antiquotations specifies an alternative
wenzelm@17259
   113
context interpreting the subsequent argument.  For example: @{thm
wenzelm@17269
   114
[locale=lattice] inf_assoc}.
wenzelm@17259
   115
wenzelm@17097
   116
* Proper output of proof terms (@{prf ...} and @{full_prf ...}) within
wenzelm@17097
   117
a proof context.
wenzelm@17097
   118
wenzelm@17097
   119
* Proper output of antiquotations for theory commands involving a
wenzelm@17097
   120
proof context (such as 'locale' or 'theorem (in loc) ...').
wenzelm@17097
   121
wenzelm@17193
   122
* Delimiters of outer tokens (string etc.) now produce separate LaTeX
wenzelm@17193
   123
macros (\isachardoublequoteopen, isachardoublequoteclose etc.).
wenzelm@17193
   124
wenzelm@17193
   125
* isatool usedir: new option -C (default true) controls whether option
wenzelm@17193
   126
-D should include a copy of the original document directory; -C false
wenzelm@17193
   127
prevents unwanted effects such as copying of administrative CVS data.
wenzelm@17193
   128
wenzelm@16234
   129
wenzelm@16234
   130
*** Pure ***
wenzelm@16234
   131
wenzelm@16234
   132
* Considerably improved version of 'constdefs' command.  Now performs
wenzelm@16234
   133
automatic type-inference of declared constants; additional support for
wenzelm@16234
   134
local structure declarations (cf. locales and HOL records), see also
wenzelm@16234
   135
isar-ref manual.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY: need to observe strictly
wenzelm@16234
   136
sequential dependencies of definitions within a single 'constdefs'
wenzelm@16234
   137
section; moreover, the declared name needs to be an identifier.  If
wenzelm@16234
   138
all fails, consider to fall back on 'consts' and 'defs' separately.
wenzelm@16234
   139
wenzelm@16234
   140
* Improved indexed syntax and implicit structures.  First of all,
wenzelm@16234
   141
indexed syntax provides a notational device for subscripted
wenzelm@16234
   142
application, using the new syntax \<^bsub>term\<^esub> for arbitrary
wenzelm@16234
   143
expressions.  Secondly, in a local context with structure
wenzelm@16234
   144
declarations, number indexes \<^sub>n or the empty index (default
wenzelm@16234
   145
number 1) refer to a certain fixed variable implicitly; option
wenzelm@16234
   146
show_structs controls printing of implicit structures.  Typical
wenzelm@16234
   147
applications of these concepts involve record types and locales.
wenzelm@16234
   148
wenzelm@16234
   149
* New command 'no_syntax' removes grammar declarations (and
wenzelm@16234
   150
translations) resulting from the given syntax specification, which is
wenzelm@16234
   151
interpreted in the same manner as for the 'syntax' command.
wenzelm@16234
   152
wenzelm@16234
   153
* 'Advanced' translation functions (parse_translation etc.) may depend
wenzelm@16234
   154
on the signature of the theory context being presently used for
wenzelm@16234
   155
parsing/printing, see also isar-ref manual.
wenzelm@16234
   156
wenzelm@16856
   157
* Improved 'oracle' command provides a type-safe interface to turn an
wenzelm@16856
   158
ML expression of type theory -> T -> term into a primitive rule of
wenzelm@16856
   159
type theory -> T -> thm (i.e. the functionality of Thm.invoke_oracle
wenzelm@16856
   160
is already included here); see also FOL/ex/IffExample.thy;
wenzelm@16856
   161
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@16856
   162
wenzelm@17275
   163
* axclass: name space prefix for class "c" is now "c_class" (was "c"
wenzelm@17275
   164
before); "cI" is no longer bound, use "c.intro" instead.
wenzelm@17275
   165
INCOMPATIBILITY.  This change avoids clashes of fact bindings for
wenzelm@17275
   166
axclasses vs. locales.
wenzelm@17275
   167
wenzelm@16234
   168
* Improved internal renaming of symbolic identifiers -- attach primes
wenzelm@16234
   169
instead of base 26 numbers.
wenzelm@16234
   170
wenzelm@16234
   171
* New flag show_question_marks controls printing of leading question
wenzelm@16234
   172
marks in schematic variable names.
wenzelm@16234
   173
wenzelm@16234
   174
* In schematic variable names, *any* symbol following \<^isub> or
wenzelm@16234
   175
\<^isup> is now treated as part of the base name.  For example, the
wenzelm@16234
   176
following works without printing of awkward ".0" indexes:
wenzelm@16234
   177
wenzelm@16234
   178
  lemma "x\<^isub>1 = x\<^isub>2 ==> x\<^isub>2 = x\<^isub>1"
wenzelm@16234
   179
    by simp
wenzelm@16234
   180
wenzelm@16234
   181
* Inner syntax includes (*(*nested*) comments*).
wenzelm@16234
   182
wenzelm@16234
   183
* Pretty pinter now supports unbreakable blocks, specified in mixfix
wenzelm@16234
   184
annotations as "(00...)".
wenzelm@16234
   185
wenzelm@16234
   186
* Clear separation of logical types and nonterminals, where the latter
wenzelm@16234
   187
may only occur in 'syntax' specifications or type abbreviations.
wenzelm@16234
   188
Before that distinction was only partially implemented via type class
wenzelm@16234
   189
"logic" vs. "{}".  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY in rare cases of improper
wenzelm@16234
   190
use of 'types'/'consts' instead of 'nonterminals'/'syntax'.  Some very
wenzelm@16234
   191
exotic syntax specifications may require further adaption
wenzelm@16234
   192
(e.g. Cube/Base.thy).
wenzelm@16234
   193
wenzelm@16234
   194
* Removed obsolete type class "logic", use the top sort {} instead.
wenzelm@16234
   195
Note that non-logical types should be declared as 'nonterminals'
wenzelm@16234
   196
rather than 'types'.  INCOMPATIBILITY for new object-logic
wenzelm@16234
   197
specifications.
wenzelm@16234
   198
ballarin@17095
   199
* Attributes 'induct' and 'cases': type or set names may now be
ballarin@17095
   200
locally fixed variables as well.
ballarin@17095
   201
wenzelm@16234
   202
* Simplifier: can now control the depth to which conditional rewriting
wenzelm@16234
   203
is traced via the PG menu Isabelle -> Settings -> Trace Simp Depth
wenzelm@16234
   204
Limit.
wenzelm@16234
   205
wenzelm@16234
   206
* Simplifier: simplification procedures may now take the current
wenzelm@16234
   207
simpset into account (cf. Simplifier.simproc(_i) / mk_simproc
wenzelm@16234
   208
interface), which is very useful for calling the Simplifier
wenzelm@16234
   209
recursively.  Minor INCOMPATIBILITY: the 'prems' argument of simprocs
wenzelm@16234
   210
is gone -- use prems_of_ss on the simpset instead.  Moreover, the
wenzelm@16234
   211
low-level mk_simproc no longer applies Logic.varify internally, to
wenzelm@16234
   212
allow for use in a context of fixed variables.
wenzelm@16234
   213
wenzelm@16234
   214
* thin_tac now works even if the assumption being deleted contains !!
wenzelm@16234
   215
or ==>.  More generally, erule now works even if the major premise of
wenzelm@16234
   216
the elimination rule contains !! or ==>.
wenzelm@16234
   217
wenzelm@16234
   218
* Reorganized bootstrapping of the Pure theories; CPure is now derived
wenzelm@16234
   219
from Pure, which contains all common declarations already.  Both
wenzelm@16234
   220
theories are defined via plain Isabelle/Isar .thy files.
wenzelm@16234
   221
INCOMPATIBILITY: elements of CPure (such as the CPure.intro /
wenzelm@16234
   222
CPure.elim / CPure.dest attributes) now appear in the Pure name space;
wenzelm@16234
   223
use isatool fixcpure to adapt your theory and ML sources.
wenzelm@16234
   224
wenzelm@16234
   225
* New syntax 'name(i-j, i-, i, ...)' for referring to specific
wenzelm@16234
   226
selections of theorems in named facts via index ranges.
wenzelm@16234
   227
wenzelm@17097
   228
* 'print_theorems': in theory mode, really print the difference
wenzelm@17097
   229
wrt. the last state (works for interactive theory development only),
wenzelm@17097
   230
in proof mode print all local facts (cf. 'print_facts');
wenzelm@17097
   231
wenzelm@17397
   232
* 'hide': option '(open)' hides only base names.
wenzelm@17397
   233
wenzelm@17275
   234
* More efficient treatment of intermediate checkpoints in interactive
wenzelm@17275
   235
theory development.
wenzelm@17275
   236
wenzelm@16234
   237
wenzelm@16234
   238
*** Locales ***
ballarin@17095
   239
wenzelm@17385
   240
* New commands for the interpretation of locale expressions in
wenzelm@17385
   241
theories (1), locales (2) and proof contexts (3).  These generate
wenzelm@17385
   242
proof obligations from the expression specification.  After the
wenzelm@17385
   243
obligations have been discharged, theorems of the expression are added
wenzelm@17385
   244
to the theory, target locale or proof context.  The synopsis of the
wenzelm@17385
   245
commands is a follows:
wenzelm@17385
   246
ballarin@17095
   247
  (1) interpretation expr inst
ballarin@17095
   248
  (2) interpretation target < expr
ballarin@17095
   249
  (3) interpret expr inst
wenzelm@17385
   250
ballarin@17095
   251
Interpretation in theories and proof contexts require a parameter
ballarin@17095
   252
instantiation of terms from the current context.  This is applied to
wenzelm@17385
   253
specifications and theorems of the interpreted expression.
wenzelm@17385
   254
Interpretation in locales only permits parameter renaming through the
wenzelm@17385
   255
locale expression.  Interpretation is smart in that interpretations
wenzelm@17385
   256
that are active already do not occur in proof obligations, neither are
wenzelm@17385
   257
instantiated theorems stored in duplicate.  Use 'print_interps' to
wenzelm@17385
   258
inspect active interpretations of a particular locale.  For details,
ballarin@17436
   259
see the Isar Reference manual.  Examples can be found in
ballarin@17436
   260
HOL/Finite_Set.thy and HOL/Algebra/UnivPoly.thy.
wenzelm@16234
   261
wenzelm@16234
   262
INCOMPATIBILITY: former 'instantiate' has been withdrawn, use
wenzelm@16234
   263
'interpret' instead.
wenzelm@16234
   264
wenzelm@17385
   265
* New context element 'constrains' for adding type constraints to
wenzelm@17385
   266
parameters.
wenzelm@17385

* Proper static binding of attribute syntax -- i.e. types / terms /
wenzelm@16234
   274
facts mentioned as arguments are always those of the locale definition
wenzelm@16234
   275
context, independently of the context of later invocations.  Moreover,
wenzelm@16234
   276
locale operations (renaming and type / term instantiation) are applied
wenzelm@16234
   277
to attribute arguments as expected.
wenzelm@16234
   278
wenzelm@16234
   279
INCOMPATIBILITY of the ML interface: always pass Attrib.src instead of
wenzelm@16234
   280
actual attributes; rare situations may require Attrib.attribute to
wenzelm@16234
   281
embed those attributes into Attrib.src that lack concrete syntax.
wenzelm@16234
   282
Attribute implementations need to cooperate properly with the static
wenzelm@16234
   283
binding mechanism.  Basic parsers Args.XXX_typ/term/prop and
wenzelm@16234
   284
Attrib.XXX_thm etc. already do the right thing without further
wenzelm@16234
   285
intervention.  Only unusual applications -- such as "where" or "of"
wenzelm@16234
   286
(cf. src/Pure/Isar/attrib.ML), which process arguments depending both
wenzelm@16234
   287
on the context and the facts involved -- may have to assign parsed
wenzelm@16234
   288
values to argument tokens explicitly.
wenzelm@16234
   289
wenzelm@16234
   290
* Changed parameter management in theorem generation for long goal

* Method comm_ring for proving equalities in commutative rings.
wenzelm@17389

wenzelm@17389
   358
* Theory Finite_Set: changed the syntax for 'setsum', summation over
wenzelm@16234
   359
finite sets: "setsum (%x. e) A", which used to be "\<Sum>x:A. e", is
wenzelm@17371
   360
now either "SUM x:A. e" or "\<Sum>x \<in> A. e". The bound variable can
paulson@17189
   361
be a tuple pattern.
wenzelm@16234
   362
wenzelm@16234

wenzelm@16234

wenzelm@16234
   365
  "\<Sum>x | P. e"      for     "setsum (%x. e) {x. P}"
wenzelm@16234
   366
  "\<Sum>x = a..b. e"   for     "setsum (%x. e) {a..b}"
wenzelm@16234
   367
  "\<Sum>x = a..<b. e"  for     "setsum (%x. e) {a..<b}"
wenzelm@16234
   368
  "\<Sum>x < k. e"      for     "setsum (%x. e) {..<k}"
wenzelm@16234
   369
wenzelm@16234
   370
The latter form "\<Sum>x < k. e" used to be based on a separate
wenzelm@16234
   371
function "Summation", which has been discontinued.
wenzelm@16234
   372
wenzelm@16234
   373
* theory Finite_Set: in structured induction proofs, the insert case
wenzelm@16234
   374
is now 'case (insert x F)' instead of the old counterintuitive 'case
wenzelm@16234
   375
(insert F x)'.
wenzelm@16234
   376
wenzelm@16234
   377
* The 'refute' command has been extended to support a much larger
wenzelm@16234
   378
fragment of HOL, including axiomatic type classes, constdefs and
wenzelm@16234
   379
typedefs, inductive datatypes and recursion.
wenzelm@16234
   380
wenzelm@16234
   381
* Datatype induction via method 'induct' now preserves the name of the
wenzelm@16234
   382
induction variable. For example, when proving P(xs::'a list) by
wenzelm@16234
   383
induction on xs, the induction step is now P(xs) ==> P(a#xs) rather
wenzelm@16234
   384
than P(list) ==> P(a#list) as previously.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY
wenzelm@16234
   385
in unstructured proof scripts.
wenzelm@16234
   386
wenzelm@16234
   387
* Reworked implementation of records.  Improved scalability for
wenzelm@16234
   388
records with many fields, avoiding performance problems for type
wenzelm@16234
   389
inference. Records are no longer composed of nested field types, but
wenzelm@16234
   390
of nested extension types. Therefore the record type only grows linear
wenzelm@16234
   391
in the number of extensions and not in the number of fields.  The
wenzelm@16234
   392
top-level (users) view on records is preserved.  Potential
wenzelm@16234
   393
INCOMPATIBILITY only in strange cases, where the theory depends on the
wenzelm@16234
   394
old record representation. The type generated for a record is called
wenzelm@16234
   395
<record_name>_ext_type.
wenzelm@16234
   396
wenzelm@16234
   397
Flag record_quick_and_dirty_sensitive can be enabled to skip the
wenzelm@16234
   398
proofs triggered by a record definition or a simproc (if
wenzelm@16234
   399
quick_and_dirty is enabled).  Definitions of large records can take
wenzelm@16234
   400
quite long.
wenzelm@16234
   401
wenzelm@16234
   402
New simproc record_upd_simproc for simplification of multiple record
wenzelm@16234
   403
updates enabled by default.  Moreover, trivial updates are also
wenzelm@16234
   404
removed: r(|x := x r|) = r.  INCOMPATIBILITY: old proofs break
wenzelm@16234
   405
occasionally, since simplification is more powerful by default.
wenzelm@16234
   406
wenzelm@17275
   407
* typedef: proper support for polymorphic sets, which contain extra
wenzelm@17275
   408
type-variables in the term.
wenzelm@17275
   409
wenzelm@16234
   410
* Simplifier: automatically reasons about transitivity chains
wenzelm@16234
   411
involving "trancl" (r^+) and "rtrancl" (r^*) by setting up tactics
wenzelm@16234
   412
provided by Provers/trancl.ML as additional solvers.  INCOMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@16234
   413
old proofs break occasionally as simplification may now solve more
wenzelm@16234
   414
goals than previously.
wenzelm@16234
   415
wenzelm@16234
   416
* Simplifier: converts x <= y into x = y if assumption y <= x is
wenzelm@16234
   417
present.  Works for all partial orders (class "order"), in particular
wenzelm@16234
   418
numbers and sets.  For linear orders (e.g. numbers) it treats ~ x < y
wenzelm@16234
   419
just like y <= x.
wenzelm@16234
   420
wenzelm@16234
   421
* Simplifier: new simproc for "let x = a in f x".  If a is a free or
wenzelm@16234
   422
bound variable or a constant then the let is unfolded.  Otherwise
wenzelm@16234
   423
first a is simplified to b, and then f b is simplified to g. If
wenzelm@16234
   424
possible we abstract b from g arriving at "let x = b in h x",
wenzelm@16234
   425
otherwise we unfold the let and arrive at g.  The simproc can be
wenzelm@16234
   426
enabled/disabled by the reference use_let_simproc.  Potential
wenzelm@16234
   427
INCOMPATIBILITY since simplification is more powerful by default.

principle of nonstandard analysis. With a subgoal that mentions

nonstandard types like "'a star", the command "apply transfer"

replaces it with an equivalent one that mentions only standard types.

   641
full type-inference.
wenzelm@14682

huffman@17442
   644
it is much faster on terms with many nested lambda abstractions (cubic
huffman@17442
   645
instead of exponential time).
huffman@17442
   646
huffman@17442
   647
* HOLCF: new syntax for domain package: selector names are now optional.
huffman@17442
   648
Parentheses should be omitted unless argument is lazy, for example:
huffman@17442
   649
huffman@17442

  domain 'a stream = cons "'a" (lazy "'a stream")
huffman@17442

   652
* HOLCF: new command "fixrec" for defining recursive functions with pattern
huffman@17442
   653
matching; defining multiple functions with mutual recursion is also supported.
huffman@17442
   654
Patterns may include the constants cpair, spair, up, sinl, sinr, or any data
huffman@17442
   655
constructor defined by the domain package. The given equations are proven as
huffman@17442

huffman@17442
   659
of cpo and pcpo types. Syntax is exactly like the "typedef" command, but the
huffman@17442
   660
proof obligation additionally includes an admissibility requirement. The
huffman@17442
   661
packages generate instances of class cpo or pcpo, with continuity and
huffman@17442
   662
strictness theorems for Rep and Abs.

wenzelm@16234
   685
that of the SML basis, which has constructors NONE and SOME instead of
wenzelm@16234
   686
None and Some, as well as exception Option.Option instead of OPTION.
wenzelm@16234
   687
The functions the, if_none, is_some, is_none have been adapted

the standard exceptions Empty and Subscript, as well as
wenzelm@16860
   692
Library.UnequalLengths.  Function like Library.hd and Library.tl are

superceded by the standard hd and tl functions etc.
wenzelm@16860
   694
wenzelm@16860
   695
A number of basic list functions are no longer exported to the ML
wenzelm@16860
   696
toplevel, as they are variants of predefined functions.  The following
wenzelm@16234
   697
suggests how one can translate existing code:
wenzelm@15973
   698
wenzelm@15973
   699
    rev_append xs ys = List.revAppend (xs, ys)
wenzelm@15973
   700
    nth_elem (i, xs) = List.nth (xs, i)
wenzelm@15973

wenzelm@16860
   709
wenzelm@17371

wenzelm@17408
   713
* Pure/library.ML: natural list combinators fold, fold_rev, and
haftmann@16869
   714
fold_map support linear functional transformations and nesting.  For
wenzelm@16860
   715
example:
wenzelm@16860

wenzelm@16860
   717

   730
available:
wenzelm@17408

* Pure/General: structure AList (cf. Pure/General/alist.ML) provides
wenzelm@17408
   738
basic operations for association lists, following natural argument
wenzelm@17408
   739
order.  The old functions may be expressed as follows:
wenzelm@17408
   740
wenzelm@17408
   741
  assoc = uncurry (AList.lookup (op =))
wenzelm@17408
   742
  assocs = these oo AList.lookup (op =)
wenzelm@17408
   743

wenzelm@17408
   744
wenzelm@17408
   745
* Pure/General: structure AList (cf. Pure/General/alist.ML) provides
wenzelm@17408
   746
basic operations for association lists, following natural argument
wenzelm@17408

order; moreover the explicit equality predicate passed here avoids
wenzelm@17408
   748
potentially expensive polymorphic runtime equality checks.
wenzelm@17408
   749
wenzelm@17408
   750
* Pure/General: structure OrdList (cf. Pure/General/ord_list.ML)
wenzelm@17408
   751
provides a reasonably efficient light-weight implementation of sets as
wenzelm@17408
   752
lists.
wenzelm@17408
   753
wenzelm@17408
   754
* Pure/General: generic tables (cf. Pure/General/table.ML) provide a
wenzelm@17408
   755
few new operations; existing lookup and update are now curried to
wenzelm@17408
   756
follow natural argument order (for use with fold etc.);
wenzelm@17408
   757
INCOMPATIBILITY, use (uncurry Symtab.lookup) etc. as last resort.
wenzelm@17408
   758
wenzelm@17408
   759
* Pure/General: output via the Isabelle channels of
wenzelm@17408
   760
writeln/warning/error etc. is now passed through Output.output, with a
wenzelm@17408
   761
hook for arbitrary transformations depending on the print_mode
wenzelm@17408
   762
(cf. Output.add_mode -- the first active mode that provides a output
wenzelm@17408
   763
function wins).  Already formatted output may be embedded into further
wenzelm@17408
   764
text via Output.raw; the result of Pretty.string_of/str_of and derived
wenzelm@17408
   765
functions (string_of_term/cterm/thm etc.) is already marked raw to
wenzelm@17408
   766
accommodate easy composition of diagnostic messages etc.  Programmers
wenzelm@17408
   767
rarely need to care about Output.output or Output.raw at all, with
wenzelm@17408
   768
some notable exceptions: Output.output is required when bypassing the
wenzelm@17408
   769
standard channels (writeln etc.), or in token translations to produce
wenzelm@17408
   770
properly formatted results; Output.raw is required when capturing
wenzelm@17408
   771
already output material that will eventually be presented to the user
wenzelm@17408
   772
a second time.  For the default print mode, both Output.output and
wenzelm@17408
   773
Output.raw have no effect.
wenzelm@17408
   774
wenzelm@17408
   775
* Pure/General: Output.time_accumulator NAME creates an operator ('a
wenzelm@17408
   776
-> 'b) -> 'a -> 'b to measure runtime and count invocations; the
wenzelm@17408
   777
cumulative results are displayed at the end of a batch session.
wenzelm@17408
   778
wenzelm@17408
   779
* Pure/General: File.sysify_path and File.quote_sysify path have been
wenzelm@17408
   780
replaced by File.platform_path and File.shell_path (with appropriate
wenzelm@17408
   781
hooks).  This provides a clean interface for unusual systems where the
wenzelm@17408
   782
internal and external process view of file names are different.
wenzelm@17408
   783
wenzelm@16689
   784
* Pure: more efficient orders for basic syntactic entities: added
wenzelm@16689
   785
fast_string_ord, fast_indexname_ord, fast_term_ord; changed sort_ord
wenzelm@16689
   786
and typ_ord to use fast_string_ord and fast_indexname_ord (term_ord is
wenzelm@16689
   787
NOT affected); structures Symtab, Vartab, Typtab, Termtab use the fast
wenzelm@16689
   788
orders now -- potential INCOMPATIBILITY for code that depends on a
wenzelm@16689
   789
particular order for Symtab.keys, Symtab.dest, etc. (consider using
wenzelm@16689
   790
Library.sort_strings on result).
wenzelm@16689
   791
wenzelm@17408
   792
* Pure/term.ML: combinators fold_atyps, fold_aterms, fold_term_types,
wenzelm@17408
   793
fold_types traverse types/terms from left to right, observing natural
wenzelm@17408
   794
argument order.  Supercedes previous foldl_XXX versions, add_frees,
wenzelm@17408
   795
add_vars etc. have been adapted as well: INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17408
   796
wenzelm@16151
   797
* Pure: name spaces have been refined, with significant changes of the
wenzelm@16234
   798
internal interfaces -- INCOMPATIBILITY.  Renamed cond_extern(_table)
wenzelm@16234
   799
to extern(_table).  The plain name entry path is superceded by a
wenzelm@16234
   800
general 'naming' context, which also includes the 'policy' to produce
wenzelm@16234
   801
a fully qualified name and external accesses of a fully qualified
wenzelm@16234
   802
name; NameSpace.extend is superceded by context dependent
wenzelm@16234
   803
Sign.declare_name.  Several theory and proof context operations modify
wenzelm@16234
   804
the naming context.  Especially note Theory.restore_naming and
wenzelm@16234
   805
ProofContext.restore_naming to get back to a sane state; note that
wenzelm@16234
   806
Theory.add_path is no longer sufficient to recover from
wenzelm@16234
   807
Theory.absolute_path in particular.
wenzelm@16234
   808
wenzelm@16234
   809
* Pure: new flags short_names (default false) and unique_names
wenzelm@16234
   810
(default true) for controlling output of qualified names.  If
wenzelm@16234
   811
short_names is set, names are printed unqualified.  If unique_names is
wenzelm@16234
   812
reset, the name prefix is reduced to the minimum required to achieve
wenzelm@16234
   813
the original result when interning again, even if there is an overlap
wenzelm@16234
   814
with earlier declarations.
wenzelm@16151
   815
wenzelm@16456
   816
* Pure/TheoryDataFun: change of the argument structure; 'prep_ext' is
wenzelm@16456
   817
now 'extend', and 'merge' gets an additional Pretty.pp argument
wenzelm@16456
   818
(useful for printing error messages).  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@16456
   819
wenzelm@16456
   820
* Pure: major reorganization of the theory context.  Type Sign.sg and
wenzelm@16456
   821
Theory.theory are now identified, referring to the universal
wenzelm@16456
   822
Context.theory (see Pure/context.ML).  Actual signature and theory
wenzelm@16456
   823
content is managed as theory data.  The old code and interfaces were
wenzelm@16456
   824
spread over many files and structures; the new arrangement introduces
wenzelm@16456
   825
considerable INCOMPATIBILITY to gain more clarity:
wenzelm@16456
   826
wenzelm@16456
   827
  Context -- theory management operations (name, identity, inclusion,
wenzelm@16456
   828
    parents, ancestors, merge, etc.), plus generic theory data;
wenzelm@16456
   829
wenzelm@16456
   830
  Sign -- logical signature and syntax operations (declaring consts,
wenzelm@16456
   831
    types, etc.), plus certify/read for common entities;
wenzelm@16456
   832
wenzelm@16456
   833
  Theory -- logical theory operations (stating axioms, definitions,
wenzelm@16456
   834
    oracles), plus a copy of logical signature operations (consts,
wenzelm@16456
   835
    types, etc.); also a few basic management operations (Theory.copy,
wenzelm@16456
   836
    Theory.merge, etc.)
wenzelm@16456
   837
wenzelm@16456
   838
The most basic sign_of operations (Theory.sign_of, Thm.sign_of_thm
wenzelm@16456
   839
etc.) as well as the sign field in Thm.rep_thm etc. have been retained
wenzelm@16456
   840
for convenience -- they merely return the theory.
wenzelm@16456
   841
wenzelm@17193
   842
* Pure: type Type.tsig is superceded by theory in most interfaces.
wenzelm@17193
   843
wenzelm@16547
   844
* Pure: the Isar proof context type is already defined early in Pure
wenzelm@16547
   845
as Context.proof (note that ProofContext.context and Proof.context are
wenzelm@16547
   846
aliases, where the latter is the preferred name).  This enables other
wenzelm@16547
   847
Isabelle components to refer to that type even before Isar is present.
wenzelm@16547
   848
wenzelm@16373
   849
* Pure/sign/theory: discontinued named name spaces (i.e. classK,
wenzelm@16373
   850
typeK, constK, axiomK, oracleK), but provide explicit operations for
wenzelm@16373
   851
any of these kinds.  For example, Sign.intern typeK is now
wenzelm@16373
   852
Sign.intern_type, Theory.hide_space Sign.typeK is now
wenzelm@16373
   853
Theory.hide_types.  Also note that former
wenzelm@16373
   854
Theory.hide_classes/types/consts are now
wenzelm@16373
   855
Theory.hide_classes_i/types_i/consts_i, while the non '_i' versions
wenzelm@16373
   856
internalize their arguments!  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@16373
   857
wenzelm@16506
   858
* Pure: get_thm interface (of PureThy and ProofContext) expects
wenzelm@16506
   859
datatype thmref (with constructors Name and NameSelection) instead of
wenzelm@16506
   860
plain string -- INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@16506
   861
wenzelm@16151
   862
* Pure: cases produced by proof methods specify options, where NONE
wenzelm@16234
   863
means to remove case bindings -- INCOMPATIBILITY in
wenzelm@16234
   864
(RAW_)METHOD_CASES.
wenzelm@16151
   865
wenzelm@16373
   866
* Pure: the following operations retrieve axioms or theorems from a
wenzelm@16373
   867
theory node or theory hierarchy, respectively:
wenzelm@16373
   868
wenzelm@16373
   869
  Theory.axioms_of: theory -> (string * term) list
wenzelm@16373
   870
  Theory.all_axioms_of: theory -> (string * term) list
wenzelm@16373
   871
  PureThy.thms_of: theory -> (string * thm) list
wenzelm@16373
   872
  PureThy.all_thms_of: theory -> (string * thm) list
wenzelm@16373
   873
wenzelm@16718
   874
* Pure: print_tac now outputs the goal through the trace channel.
wenzelm@16718
   875
wenzelm@17408
   876
* Isar toplevel: improved diagnostics, mostly for Poly/ML only.
wenzelm@17408
   877
Reference Toplevel.debug (default false) controls detailed printing
wenzelm@17408
   878
and tracing of low-level exceptions; Toplevel.profiling (default 0)
wenzelm@17408
   879
controls execution profiling -- set to 1 for time and 2 for space
wenzelm@17408
   880
(both increase the runtime).
wenzelm@17408
   881
wenzelm@17408
   882
* Isar session: The initial use of ROOT.ML is now always timed,
wenzelm@17408
   883
i.e. the log will show the actual process times, in contrast to the
wenzelm@17408
   884
elapsed wall-clock time that the outer shell wrapper produces.
wenzelm@17408
   885
wenzelm@17408
   886
* Simplifier: improved handling of bound variables (nameless
wenzelm@16997
   887
representation, avoid allocating new strings).  Simprocs that invoke
wenzelm@16997
   888
the Simplifier recursively should use Simplifier.inherit_bounds to
wenzelm@16997
   889
avoid local name clashes.
wenzelm@16997
   890
wenzelm@17408
   891
* Provers: Simplifier and Classical Reasoner now support proof context
wenzelm@17408
   892
dependent plug-ins (simprocs, solvers, wrappers etc.).  These extra
wenzelm@17408
   893
components are stored in the theory and patched into the
wenzelm@16234
   894
simpset/claset when used in an Isar proof context.  Context dependent
wenzelm@16234
   895
components are maintained by the following theory operations:
wenzelm@16234
   896
wenzelm@16234
   897
  Simplifier.add_context_simprocs
wenzelm@16234
   898
  Simplifier.del_context_simprocs
wenzelm@16234
   899
  Simplifier.set_context_subgoaler
wenzelm@16234
   900
  Simplifier.reset_context_subgoaler
wenzelm@16234
   901
  Simplifier.add_context_looper
wenzelm@16234
   902
  Simplifier.del_context_looper
wenzelm@16234
   903
  Simplifier.add_context_unsafe_solver
wenzelm@16234
   904
  Simplifier.add_context_safe_solver
wenzelm@16234
   905
wenzelm@16234
   906
  Classical.add_context_safe_wrapper
wenzelm@16234
   907
  Classical.del_context_safe_wrapper
wenzelm@16234
   908
  Classical.add_context_unsafe_wrapper
wenzelm@16234
   909
  Classical.del_context_unsafe_wrapper
wenzelm@16234
   910
wenzelm@16234
   911
IMPORTANT NOTE: proof tools (methods etc.) need to use
wenzelm@16234
   912
local_simpset_of and local_claset_of to instead of the primitive
wenzelm@16234
   913
Simplifier.get_local_simpset and Classical.get_local_claset,
wenzelm@16234
   914
respectively, in order to see the context dependent fields!
wenzelm@16234
   915
wenzelm@17166
   916
* ML functions legacy_bindings and use_legacy_bindings produce ML fact
wenzelm@17166
   917
bindings for all theorems stored within a given theory; this may help
wenzelm@17166
   918
in porting non-Isar theories to Isar ones, while keeping ML proof
wenzelm@17166
   919
scripts for the time being.
wenzelm@17166
   920
wenzelm@17457
   921
* ML operator HTML.with_charset specifies the charset begin used for
wenzelm@17457
   922
generated HTML files.  For example:
wenzelm@17457
   923
wenzelm@17457
   924
  HTML.with_charset "utf-8" use_thy "Hebrew";
wenzelm@17457

*** System ***
wenzelm@16234
   928
wenzelm@16234
   929
* Allow symlinks to all proper Isabelle executables (Isabelle,
wenzelm@16234
   930
isabelle, isatool etc.).
wenzelm@16234
   931
wenzelm@16234
   932
* ISABELLE_DOC_FORMAT setting specifies preferred document format (for
wenzelm@16234
   933
isatool doc, isatool mkdir, display_drafts etc.).
wenzelm@16234
   934
wenzelm@16234
   935
* isatool usedir: option -f allows specification of the ML file to be
wenzelm@16234
   936
used by Isabelle; default is ROOT.ML.
wenzelm@16234
   937
wenzelm@16251
   938
* New isatool version outputs the version identifier of the Isabelle
wenzelm@16251
   939
distribution being used.
wenzelm@16251
   940
wenzelm@16251
   941
* HOL: new isatool dimacs2hol converts files in DIMACS CNF format
wenzelm@16234
   942
(containing Boolean satisfiability problems) into Isabelle/HOL
wenzelm@16234
   943
theories.

ballarin@14398
   952
* Provers/order.ML:  new efficient reasoner for partial and linear orders.
ballarin@14398
   953
  Replaces linorder.ML.
ballarin@14398
   954
wenzelm@14606
   955
* Pure: Greek letters (except small lambda, \<lambda>), as well as Gothic
wenzelm@14606
   956
  (\<aa>...\<zz>\<AA>...\<ZZ>), calligraphic (\<A>...\<Z>), and Euler
skalberg@14173
   957
  (\<a>...\<z>), are now considered normal letters, and can therefore
skalberg@14173
   958
  be used anywhere where an ASCII letter (a...zA...Z) has until
skalberg@14173
   959
  now. COMPATIBILITY: This obviously changes the parsing of some
skalberg@14173
   960
  terms, especially where a symbol has been used as a binder, say
skalberg@14173
   961
  '\<Pi>x. ...', which is now a type error since \<Pi>x will be parsed
skalberg@14173
   962
  as an identifier.  Fix it by inserting a space around former
skalberg@14173
   963
  symbols.  Call 'isatool fixgreek' to try to fix parsing errors in
skalberg@14173
   964
  existing theory and ML files.
skalberg@14171
   965
paulson@14237
   966
* Pure: Macintosh and Windows line-breaks are now allowed in theory files.
paulson@14237
   967
wenzelm@14731
   968
* Pure: single letter sub/superscripts (\<^isub> and \<^isup>) are now
wenzelm@14731
   969
  allowed in identifiers. Similar to Greek letters \<^isub> is now considered
wenzelm@14731
   970
  a normal (but invisible) letter. For multiple letter subscripts repeat
wenzelm@14731
   971
  \<^isub> like this: x\<^isub>1\<^isub>2.
kleing@14233
   972
kleing@14333
   973
* Pure: There are now sub-/superscripts that can span more than one
kleing@14333
   974
  character. Text between \<^bsub> and \<^esub> is set in subscript in
wenzelm@14606
   975
  ProofGeneral and LaTeX, text between \<^bsup> and \<^esup> in
wenzelm@14606
   976
  superscript. The new control characters are not identifier parts.
kleing@14333
   977
schirmer@14561
   978
* Pure: Control-symbols of the form \<^raw:...> will literally print the
wenzelm@14606
   979
  content of "..." to the latex file instead of \isacntrl... . The "..."
wenzelm@14606
   980
  may consist of any printable characters excluding the end bracket >.
schirmer@14361
   981
paulson@14237
   982
* Pure: Using new Isar command "finalconsts" (or the ML functions
paulson@14237
   983
  Theory.add_finals or Theory.add_finals_i) it is now possible to
paulson@14237
   984
  declare constants "final", which prevents their being given a definition
paulson@14237
   985
  later.  It is useful for constants whose behaviour is fixed axiomatically
skalberg@14224
   986
  rather than definitionally, such as the meta-logic connectives.
skalberg@14224
   987
wenzelm@14606
   988
* Pure: 'instance' now handles general arities with general sorts
wenzelm@14606
   989
  (i.e. intersections of classes),
skalberg@14503
   990
kleing@14547
   991
* Presentation: generated HTML now uses a CSS style sheet to make layout
wenzelm@14731
   992
  (somewhat) independent of content. It is copied from lib/html/isabelle.css.
kleing@14547
   993
  It can be changed to alter the colors/layout of generated pages.

* Tactic emulation methods rule_tac, erule_tac, drule_tac, frule_tac,
ballarin@14508
   999
  cut_tac, subgoal_tac and thin_tac:
ballarin@14175
  1000
  - Now understand static (Isar) contexts.  As a consequence, users of Isar
ballarin@14175
  1001
    locales are no longer forced to write Isar proof scripts.
ballarin@14175
  1002
    For details see Isar Reference Manual, paragraph 4.3.2: Further tactic
ballarin@14175
  1003
    emulations.
ballarin@14175
  1004
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: names of variables to be instantiated may no
ballarin@14211
  1005
    longer be enclosed in quotes.  Instead, precede variable name with `?'.
ballarin@14211
  1006
    This is consistent with the instantiation attribute "where".
ballarin@14211
  1007
ballarin@14257
  1008
* Attributes "where" and "of":
ballarin@14285
  1009
  - Now take type variables of instantiated theorem into account when reading
ballarin@14285
  1010
    the instantiation string.  This fixes a bug that caused instantiated
ballarin@14285
  1011
    theorems to have too special types in some circumstances.
ballarin@14285
  1012
  - "where" permits explicit instantiations of type variables.
ballarin@14257
  1013
wenzelm@14556
  1014
* Calculation commands "moreover" and "also" no longer interfere with
wenzelm@14556
  1015
  current facts ("this"), admitting arbitrary combinations with "then"
wenzelm@14556
  1016
  and derived forms.
kleing@14283
  1017
ballarin@14211
  1018
* Locales:
ballarin@14211
  1019
  - Goal statements involving the context element "includes" no longer
ballarin@14211
  1020
    generate theorems with internal delta predicates (those ending on
ballarin@14211
  1021
    "_axioms") in the premise.
ballarin@14211
  1022
    Resolve particular premise with <locale>.intro to obtain old form.
ballarin@14211
  1023
  - Fixed bug in type inference ("unify_frozen") that prevented mix of target
ballarin@14211
  1024
    specification and "includes" elements in goal statement.

    [intro?] and [elim?] (respectively) by default.

  1027
  - Experimental command for instantiation of locales in proof contexts:
ballarin@14551
  1028
        instantiate <label>[<attrs>]: <loc>
ballarin@14508
  1029
    Instantiates locale <loc> and adds all its theorems to the current context
ballarin@14551
  1030
    taking into account their attributes.  Label and attrs are optional
ballarin@14551
  1031
    modifiers, like in theorem declarations.  If present, names of
ballarin@14551
  1032
    instantiated theorems are qualified with <label>, and the attributes
ballarin@14551
  1033
    <attrs> are applied after any attributes these theorems might have already.
ballarin@14551
  1034
      If the locale has assumptions, a chained fact of the form
ballarin@14508
  1035
    "<loc> t1 ... tn" is expected from which instantiations of the parameters
ballarin@14551
  1036
    are derived.  The command does not support old-style locales declared
ballarin@14551
  1037
    with "locale (open)".

* Simplifier:
ballarin@14398
  1053
  - Much improved handling of linear and partial orders.
ballarin@14398
  1054
    Reasoners for linear and partial orders are set up for type classes
ballarin@14398
  1055
    "linorder" and "order" respectively, and are added to the default simpset
ballarin@14398
  1056
    as solvers.  This means that the simplifier can build transitivity chains
ballarin@14398
  1057
    to solve goals from the assumptions.
ballarin@14398
  1058
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: old proofs break occasionally.  Typically, applications
ballarin@14398
  1059
    of blast or auto after simplification become unnecessary because the goal
ballarin@14398
  1060
    is solved by simplification already.

paulson@14389
  1068
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: simplification and arithmetic behaves somewhat differently
paulson@14389

    than before, because now they are set up once in a generic manner.
wenzelm@14731
  1070
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: many type-specific arithmetic laws have gone.
paulson@14480
  1071
    Look for the general versions in Ring_and_Field (and Power if they concern
paulson@14480

  1102
  from "\Union x \in A. B" to "\Union_{x \in A} B"
nipkow@15119

  i.e. the index formulae has become a subscript.

berghofe@14602
  1122
  formulae under an assignment of free variables to random values.
berghofe@14602
  1123
  In contrast to 'refute', it can deal with inductive datatypes,
berghofe@14602
  1124
  but cannot handle quantifiers. See "HOL/ex/Quickcheck_Examples.thy"

* Provers/simplifier:
berghofe@13618
  1140
nipkow@13781
  1141
  - Completely reimplemented method simp (ML: Asm_full_simp_tac):
berghofe@13618
  1142
    Assumptions are now subject to complete mutual simplification,
berghofe@13618
  1143
    not just from left to right. The simplifier now preserves
berghofe@13618
  1144
    the order of assumptions.
berghofe@13618
  1145
berghofe@13618
  1146
    Potential INCOMPATIBILITY:
berghofe@13618
  1147
nipkow@13781
  1148
    -- simp sometimes diverges where the old version did
nipkow@13781
  1149
       not, e.g. invoking simp on the goal
berghofe@13618
  1150
berghofe@13618
  1151
        [| P (f x); y = x; f x = f y |] ==> Q
berghofe@13618
  1152
nipkow@13781
  1153
       now gives rise to the infinite reduction sequence
nipkow@13781
  1154
nipkow@13781
  1155
        P(f x) --(f x = f y)--> P(f y) --(y = x)--> P(f x) --(f x = f y)--> ...
nipkow@13781
  1156
nipkow@13781
  1157
       Using "simp (asm_lr)" (ML: Asm_lr_simp_tac) instead often solves this
nipkow@13781
  1158
       kind of problem.
nipkow@13781
  1159
nipkow@13781
  1160
    -- Tactics combining classical reasoner and simplification (such as auto)
nipkow@13781
  1161
       are also affected by this change, because many of them rely on
nipkow@13781
  1162
       simp. They may sometimes diverge as well or yield a different numbers
nipkow@13781
  1163
       of subgoals. Try to use e.g. force, fastsimp, or safe instead of auto
nipkow@13781
  1164
       in case of problems. Sometimes subsequent calls to the classical
nipkow@13781
  1165
       reasoner will fail because a preceeding call to the simplifier too
nipkow@13781
  1166
       eagerly simplified the goal, e.g. deleted redundant premises.
berghofe@13618
  1167
berghofe@13618
  1168
  - The simplifier trace now shows the names of the applied rewrite rules
berghofe@13618
  1169
nipkow@13829
  1170
  - You can limit the number of recursive invocations of the simplifier
nipkow@13829
  1171
    during conditional rewriting (where the simplifie tries to solve the
nipkow@13829
  1172
    conditions before applying the rewrite rule):
nipkow@13829
  1173
    ML "simp_depth_limit := n"
nipkow@13829
  1174
    where n is an integer. Thus you can force termination where previously
nipkow@13829
  1175
    the simplifier would diverge.
nipkow@13829
  1176
ballarin@13835
  1177
  - Accepts free variables as head terms in congruence rules.  Useful in Isar.
nipkow@13829
  1178
ballarin@13938
  1179
  - No longer aborts on failed congruence proof.  Instead, the
ballarin@13938
  1180
    congruence is ignored.

berghofe@14008
  1185
nipkow@13868

* Pure: The main goal of the proof state is no longer shown by default, only
nipkow@13868
  1187
the subgoals. This behaviour is controlled by a new flag.
ballarin@13835
  1188
   PG menu: Isabelle/Isar -> Settings -> Show Main Goal

  1189
(ML: Proof.show_main_goal).
nipkow@13815
  1190
nipkow@13815
  1191
* Pure: You can find all matching introduction rules for subgoal 1, i.e. all
nipkow@13815
  1192
rules whose conclusion matches subgoal 1:
nipkow@13815
  1193
      PG menu: Isabelle/Isar -> Show me -> matching rules
nipkow@13815
  1194
The rules are ordered by how closely they match the subgoal.
nipkow@13815
  1195
In particular, rules that solve a subgoal outright are displayed first
nipkow@13815
  1196
(or rather last, the way they are printed).

  1197
(ML: ProofGeneral.print_intros())
nipkow@13815
  1198
nipkow@13815
  1199
* Pure: New flag trace_unify_fail causes unification to print
nipkow@13781
  1200
diagnostic information (PG: in trace buffer) when it fails. This is
nipkow@13781
  1201
useful for figuring out why single step proofs like rule, erule or
nipkow@13781
  1202
assumption failed.
nipkow@13781
  1203
nipkow@13815
  1204
* Pure: Locale specifications now produce predicate definitions
wenzelm@13410
  1205
according to the body of text (covering assumptions modulo local
wenzelm@13410
  1206
definitions); predicate "loc_axioms" covers newly introduced text,
wenzelm@13410
  1207
while "loc" is cumulative wrt. all included locale expressions; the
wenzelm@13410
  1208
latter view is presented only on export into the global theory
wenzelm@13410
  1209
context; potential INCOMPATIBILITY, use "(open)" option to fall back
wenzelm@13410
  1210
on the old view without predicates;
wenzelm@13410
  1211
wenzelm@13459
  1212
* Pure: predefined locales "var" and "struct" are useful for sharing
wenzelm@13459
  1213
parameters (as in CASL, for example); just specify something like
wenzelm@13459
  1214
``var x + var y + struct M'' as import;
wenzelm@13459
  1215
wenzelm@13463
  1216
* Pure: improved thms_containing: proper indexing of facts instead of
wenzelm@13463
  1217
raw theorems; check validity of results wrt. current name space;
wenzelm@13463
  1218
include local facts of proof configuration (also covers active
wenzelm@13541
  1219
locales), cover fixed variables in index; may use "_" in term
wenzelm@13541
  1220
specification; an optional limit for the number of printed facts may
wenzelm@13541
  1221
be given (the default is 40);
wenzelm@13541
  1222
wenzelm@13541
  1223
* Pure: disallow duplicate fact bindings within new-style theory files
wenzelm@13541
  1224
(batch-mode only);
wenzelm@13540
  1225
wenzelm@13463
  1226
* Provers: improved induct method: assumptions introduced by case
wenzelm@13463
  1227
"foo" are split into "foo.hyps" (from the rule) and "foo.prems" (from
wenzelm@13463
  1228
the goal statement); "foo" still refers to all facts collectively;
wenzelm@13463
  1229
paulson@13550
  1230
* Provers: the function blast.overloaded has been removed: all constants
paulson@13550
  1231
are regarded as potentially overloaded, which improves robustness in exchange
paulson@13550
  1232
for slight decrease in efficiency;
paulson@13550
  1233
nipkow@13781
  1234
* Provers/linorder: New generic prover for transitivity reasoning over

nipkow@13781
  1236

*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@11572
  1359
wenzelm@11842
  1360
* greatly simplified document preparation setup, including more
wenzelm@11842
  1361
graceful interpretation of isatool usedir -i/-d/-D options, and more
wenzelm@11842
  1362
instructive isatool mkdir; users should basically be able to get
wenzelm@12899
  1363
started with "isatool mkdir HOL Test && isatool make"; alternatively,
wenzelm@12899
  1364
users may run a separate document processing stage manually like this:
wenzelm@12899
  1365
"isatool usedir -D output HOL Test && isatool document Test/output";
wenzelm@11842
  1366
wenzelm@11842
  1367
* theory dependency graph may now be incorporated into documents;
wenzelm@11842
  1368
isatool usedir -g true will produce session_graph.eps/.pdf for use
wenzelm@11842
  1369
with \includegraphics of LaTeX;
wenzelm@11842
  1370
wenzelm@11864
  1371
* proper spacing of consecutive markup elements, especially text
wenzelm@11864
  1372
blocks after section headings;
wenzelm@11864
  1373
wenzelm@11572
  1374
* support bold style (for single symbols only), input syntax is like
wenzelm@11572
  1375
this: "\<^bold>\<alpha>" or "\<^bold>A";
wenzelm@11572
  1376
wenzelm@11814
  1377
* \<bullet> is now output as bold \cdot by default, which looks much
wenzelm@11572
  1378
better in printed text;
wenzelm@11572
  1379
wenzelm@11712
  1380
* added default LaTeX bindings for \<tturnstile> and \<TTurnstile>;
wenzelm@11712
  1381
note that these symbols are currently unavailable in Proof General /
wenzelm@12769
  1382

wenzelm@12690
  1383
wenzelm@12690

  1390
wenzelm@12312
  1391
* Pure/Provers: improved proof by cases and induction;
wenzelm@12280
  1392
  - 'case' command admits impromptu naming of parameters (such as
wenzelm@12280
  1393
    "case (Suc n)");
wenzelm@12280
  1394
  - 'induct' method divinates rule instantiation from the inductive
wenzelm@12280
  1395
    claim; no longer requires excessive ?P bindings for proper
wenzelm@12280
  1396
    instantiation of cases;
wenzelm@12280
  1397
  - 'induct' method properly enumerates all possibilities of set/type
wenzelm@12280
  1398
    rules; as a consequence facts may be also passed through *type*
wenzelm@12280
  1399
    rules without further ado;
wenzelm@12280
  1400
  - 'induct' method now derives symbolic cases from the *rulified*
wenzelm@12280
  1401
    rule (before it used to rulify cases stemming from the internal
wenzelm@12280
  1402
    atomized version); this means that the context of a non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
  1403
    statement becomes is included in the hypothesis, avoiding the
wenzelm@12280
  1404
    slightly cumbersome show "PROP ?case" form;
wenzelm@12280
  1405
  - 'induct' may now use elim-style induction rules without chaining
wenzelm@12280
  1406
    facts, using ``missing'' premises from the goal state; this allows
wenzelm@12280
  1407
    rules stemming from inductive sets to be applied in unstructured
wenzelm@12280
  1408
    scripts, while still benefitting from proper handling of non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
  1409
    statements; NB: major inductive premises need to be put first, all
wenzelm@12280
  1410
    the rest of the goal is passed through the induction;
wenzelm@12280
  1411
  - 'induct' proper support for mutual induction involving non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
  1412
    rule statements (uses the new concept of simultaneous goals, see
wenzelm@12280
  1413
    below);
wenzelm@12853
  1414
  - append all possible rule selections, but only use the first
wenzelm@12853
  1415
    success (no backtracking);
wenzelm@11995
  1416
  - removed obsolete "(simplified)" and "(stripped)" options of methods;
wenzelm@12754
  1417
  - undeclared rule case names default to numbers 1, 2, 3, ...;
wenzelm@12754
  1418
  - added 'print_induct_rules' (covered by help item in recent Proof
wenzelm@12754
  1419
    General versions);
wenzelm@11995
  1420
  - moved induct/cases attributes to Pure, methods to Provers;
wenzelm@11995
  1421
  - generic method setup instantiated for FOL and HOL;
wenzelm@11986
  1422
wenzelm@12163
  1423
* Pure: support multiple simultaneous goal statements, for example
wenzelm@12163
  1424
"have a: A and b: B" (same for 'theorem' etc.); being a pure
wenzelm@12163
  1425
meta-level mechanism, this acts as if several individual goals had
wenzelm@12163
  1426
been stated separately; in particular common proof methods need to be
wenzelm@12163
  1427
repeated in order to cover all claims; note that a single elimination
wenzelm@12163
  1428
step is *not* sufficient to establish the two conjunctions, so this
wenzelm@12163
  1429
fails:
wenzelm@12163
  1430
wenzelm@12163
  1431
  assume "A & B" then have A and B ..   (*".." fails*)
wenzelm@12163
  1432
wenzelm@12163
  1433
better use "obtain" in situations as above; alternative refer to
wenzelm@12163
  1434
multi-step methods like 'auto', 'simp_all', 'blast+' etc.;
wenzelm@12163
  1435
wenzelm@12078
  1436
* Pure: proper integration with ``locales''; unlike the original
webertj@15154
  1437
version by Florian Kammller, Isar locales package high-level proof
wenzelm@12078
  1438
contexts rather than raw logical ones (e.g. we admit to include
wenzelm@12280
  1439
attributes everywhere); operations on locales include merge and
wenzelm@12964
  1440
rename; support for implicit arguments (``structures''); simultaneous
wenzelm@12964
  1441
type-inference over imports and text; see also HOL/ex/Locales.thy for
wenzelm@12964
  1442
some examples;
wenzelm@12078
  1443
wenzelm@12707
  1444
* Pure: the following commands have been ``localized'', supporting a
wenzelm@12707
  1445
target locale specification "(in name)": 'lemma', 'theorem',
wenzelm@12707
  1446
'corollary', 'lemmas', 'theorems', 'declare'; the results will be
wenzelm@12707
  1447
stored both within the locale and at the theory level (exported and
wenzelm@12707
  1448
qualified by the locale name);
wenzelm@12707
  1449
wenzelm@12964
  1450
* Pure: theory goals may now be specified in ``long'' form, with
wenzelm@12964
  1451
ad-hoc contexts consisting of arbitrary locale elements. for example
wenzelm@12964
  1452
``lemma foo: fixes x assumes "A x" shows "B x"'' (local syntax and
wenzelm@12964
  1453
definitions may be given, too); the result is a meta-level rule with
wenzelm@12964
  1454
the context elements being discharged in the obvious way;
wenzelm@12964
  1455
wenzelm@12964
  1456
* Pure: new proof command 'using' allows to augment currently used
wenzelm@12964
  1457
facts after a goal statement ('using' is syntactically analogous to
wenzelm@12964
  1458
'apply', but acts on the goal's facts only); this allows chained facts
wenzelm@12964
  1459
to be separated into parts given before and after a claim, as in
wenzelm@12964
  1460
``from a and b have C using d and e <proof>'';
wenzelm@12078
  1461
wenzelm@11722
  1462
* Pure: renamed "antecedent" case to "rule_context";
wenzelm@11722
  1463
wenzelm@12964
  1464
* Pure: new 'judgment' command records explicit information about the
wenzelm@12964
  1465
object-logic embedding (used by several tools internally); no longer
wenzelm@12964
  1466
use hard-wired "Trueprop";
wenzelm@12964
  1467
wenzelm@11738
  1468
* Pure: added 'corollary' command;
wenzelm@11738
  1469
wenzelm@11722
  1470
* Pure: fixed 'token_translation' command;
wenzelm@11722
  1471
wenzelm@11899
  1472
* Pure: removed obsolete 'exported' attribute;
wenzelm@11899
  1473
wenzelm@11933
  1474
* Pure: dummy pattern "_" in is/let is now automatically lifted over
wenzelm@11933
  1475
bound variables: "ALL x. P x --> Q x" (is "ALL x. _ --> ?C x")
wenzelm@11899
  1476
supersedes more cumbersome ... (is "ALL x. _ x --> ?C x");
wenzelm@11899
  1477
wenzelm@11952
  1478
* Pure: method 'atomize' presents local goal premises as object-level
wenzelm@11952
  1479
statements (atomic meta-level propositions); setup controlled via
wenzelm@11952
  1480
rewrite rules declarations of 'atomize' attribute; example
wenzelm@11952
  1481
application: 'induct' method with proper rule statements in improper
wenzelm@11952
  1482
proof *scripts*;
wenzelm@11952
  1483
wenzelm@12106
  1484
* Pure: emulation of instantiation tactics (rule_tac, cut_tac, etc.)
wenzelm@12106
  1485
now consider the syntactic context of assumptions, giving a better
wenzelm@12106
  1486
chance to get type-inference of the arguments right (this is
wenzelm@12106
  1487
especially important for locales);
wenzelm@12106
  1488
wenzelm@12312
  1489
* Pure: "sorry" no longer requires quick_and_dirty in interactive
wenzelm@12312
  1490
mode;
wenzelm@12312
  1491
wenzelm@12405
  1492
* Pure/obtain: the formal conclusion "thesis", being marked as
wenzelm@12405
  1493
``internal'', may no longer be reference directly in the text;
wenzelm@12405
  1494
potential INCOMPATIBILITY, may need to use "?thesis" in rare
wenzelm@12405
  1495
situations;
wenzelm@12405
  1496
wenzelm@12405
  1497
* Pure: generic 'sym' attribute which declares a rule both as pure
wenzelm@12405
  1498
'elim?' and for the 'symmetric' operation;
wenzelm@12405
  1499
wenzelm@12877
  1500
* Pure: marginal comments ``--'' may now occur just anywhere in the
wenzelm@12877
  1501
text; the fixed correlation with particular command syntax has been
wenzelm@12877
  1502
discontinued;
wenzelm@12877
  1503
berghofe@13023
  1504
* Pure: new method 'rules' is particularly well-suited for proof
berghofe@13023
  1505
search in intuitionistic logic; a bit slower than 'blast' or 'fast',
berghofe@13023
  1506
but often produces more compact proof terms with less detours;
berghofe@13023
  1507
wenzelm@12364
  1508
* Pure/Provers/classical: simplified integration with pure rule
wenzelm@12364
  1509
attributes and methods; the classical "intro?/elim?/dest?"
wenzelm@12364
  1510
declarations coincide with the pure ones; the "rule" method no longer
wenzelm@12364
  1511
includes classically swapped intros; "intro" and "elim" methods no
wenzelm@12364
  1512
longer pick rules from the context; also got rid of ML declarations
wenzelm@12364
  1513
AddXIs/AddXEs/AddXDs; all of this has some potential for
wenzelm@12364
  1514
INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12364
  1515
wenzelm@12405
  1516
* Provers/classical: attribute 'swapped' produces classical inversions
wenzelm@12405
  1517
of introduction rules;
wenzelm@12405
  1518
wenzelm@12364
  1519
* Provers/simplifier: 'simplified' attribute may refer to explicit
wenzelm@12364
  1520
rules instead of full simplifier context; 'iff' attribute handles
wenzelm@12364
  1521
conditional rules;
wenzelm@11936
  1522
wenzelm@11745
  1523
* HOL: 'typedef' now allows alternative names for Rep/Abs morphisms;
wenzelm@11745
  1524
wenzelm@11690
  1525
* HOL: 'recdef' now fails on unfinished automated proofs, use
wenzelm@11633
  1526
"(permissive)" option to recover old behavior;
wenzelm@11633
  1527
wenzelm@11933
  1528
* HOL: 'inductive' no longer features separate (collective) attributes
wenzelm@11933
  1529
for 'intros' (was found too confusing);
wenzelm@11933
  1530
wenzelm@12405
  1531
* HOL: properly declared induction rules less_induct and
wenzelm@12405
  1532
wf_induct_rule;
wenzelm@12405

  1535
*** HOL ***
wenzelm@11474
  1536
wenzelm@11702
  1537
* HOL: moved over to sane numeral syntax; the new policy is as
wenzelm@11702
  1538
follows:
wenzelm@11702
  1539
wenzelm@11702
  1540
  - 0 and 1 are polymorphic constants, which are defined on any
wenzelm@11702
  1541
  numeric type (nat, int, real etc.);
wenzelm@11702
  1542
wenzelm@11702
  1543
  - 2, 3, 4, ... and -1, -2, -3, ... are polymorphic numerals, based
wenzelm@11702
  1544
  binary representation internally;
wenzelm@11702
  1545
wenzelm@11702
  1546
  - type nat has special constructor Suc, and generally prefers Suc 0
wenzelm@11702
  1547
  over 1::nat and Suc (Suc 0) over 2::nat;
wenzelm@11702
  1548
wenzelm@12364
  1549
This change may cause significant problems of INCOMPATIBILITY; here
wenzelm@12364
  1550
are some hints on converting existing sources:
wenzelm@11702
  1551
wenzelm@11702
  1552
  - due to the new "num" token, "-0" and "-1" etc. are now atomic
wenzelm@11702
  1553
  entities, so expressions involving "-" (unary or binary minus) need
wenzelm@11702
  1554
  to be spaced properly;
wenzelm@11702
  1555
wenzelm@11702
  1556
  - existing occurrences of "1" may need to be constraint "1::nat" or
wenzelm@11702
  1557
  even replaced by Suc 0; similar for old "2";
wenzelm@11702
  1558
wenzelm@11702
  1559
  - replace "#nnn" by "nnn", and "#-nnn" by "-nnn";
wenzelm@11702
  1560
wenzelm@11702
  1561
  - remove all special provisions on numerals in proofs;
wenzelm@11702
  1562
wenzelm@13042
  1563
* HOL: simp rules nat_number expand numerals on nat to Suc/0
wenzelm@12837
  1564
representation (depends on bin_arith_simps in the default context);
wenzelm@12837
  1565
wenzelm@12736
  1566
* HOL: symbolic syntax for x^2 (numeral 2);
wenzelm@12736
  1567
wenzelm@12335
  1568
* HOL: the class of all HOL types is now called "type" rather than
wenzelm@12335
  1569
"term"; INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt references to this type class
wenzelm@12335
  1570
in axclass/classes, instance/arities, and (usually rare) occurrences
wenzelm@12335
  1571
in typings (of consts etc.); internally the class is called
wenzelm@12335
  1572
"HOL.type", ML programs should refer to HOLogic.typeS;
wenzelm@12335
  1573
wenzelm@12280
  1574
* HOL/record package improvements:
wenzelm@12280
  1575
  - new derived operations "fields" to build a partial record section,
wenzelm@12280
  1576
    "extend" to promote a fixed record to a record scheme, and
wenzelm@12280
  1577
    "truncate" for the reverse; cf. theorems "xxx.defs", which are *not*
wenzelm@12280
  1578
    declared as simp by default;
wenzelm@12587
  1579
  - shared operations ("more", "fields", etc.) now need to be always
wenzelm@12587
  1580
    qualified) --- potential INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12280
  1581
  - removed "make_scheme" operations (use "make" with "extend") --
wenzelm@12280
  1582
    INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@11937
  1583
  - removed "more" class (simply use "term") -- INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12253
  1584
  - provides cases/induct rules for use with corresponding Isar
wenzelm@12253
  1585
    methods (for concrete records, record schemes, concrete more
wenzelm@12280
  1586
    parts, and schematic more parts -- in that order);
wenzelm@11930
  1587
  - internal definitions directly based on a light-weight abstract
wenzelm@11930
  1588
    theory of product types over typedef rather than datatype;
wenzelm@11930
  1589
berghofe@13023
  1590
* HOL: generic code generator for generating executable ML code from
berghofe@13023
  1591
specifications; specific support for HOL constructs such as inductive
berghofe@13023
  1592
datatypes and sets, as well as recursive functions; can be invoked
berghofe@13023
  1593
via 'generate_code' theory section;
berghofe@13023
  1594
wenzelm@11933
  1595
* HOL: canonical cases/induct rules for n-tuples (n = 3..7);
wenzelm@11933
  1596
paulson@13824
  1597
* HOL: consolidated and renamed several theories.  In particular:
wenzelm@14731
  1598
        Ord.thy has been absorbed into HOL.thy
wenzelm@14731
  1599
        String.thy has been absorbed into List.thy
wenzelm@14731
  1600
wenzelm@11802
  1601
* HOL: concrete setsum syntax "\<Sum>i:A. b" == "setsum (%i. b) A"
wenzelm@11802
  1602
(beware of argument permutation!);
wenzelm@11802
  1603
wenzelm@11657
  1604
* HOL: linorder_less_split superseded by linorder_cases;
wenzelm@11657
  1605
wenzelm@12917
  1606
* HOL/List: "nodups" renamed to "distinct";
nipkow@12889
  1607
wenzelm@11633
  1608
* HOL: added "The" definite description operator; move Hilbert's "Eps"
paulson@13824
  1609
to peripheral theory "Hilbert_Choice"; some INCOMPATIBILITIES:
paulson@13824
  1610
  - Ex_def has changed, now need to use some_eq_ex
wenzelm@11437
  1611
wenzelm@11572
  1612
* HOL: made split_all_tac safe; EXISTING PROOFS MAY FAIL OR LOOP, so
wenzelm@11572
  1613
in this (rare) case use:
wenzelm@11572
  1614
wenzelm@11572
  1615
  delSWrapper "split_all_tac"
wenzelm@11572
  1616
  addSbefore ("unsafe_split_all_tac", unsafe_split_all_tac)
wenzelm@11572
  1617
wenzelm@11572
  1618
* HOL: added safe wrapper "split_conv_tac" to claset; EXISTING PROOFS
wenzelm@11474
  1619
MAY FAIL;
nipkow@11361
  1620
wenzelm@11572
  1621
* HOL: introduced f^n = f o ... o f; warning: due to the limits of
wenzelm@11572
  1622
Isabelle's type classes, ^ on functions and relations has too general
wenzelm@11572
  1623
a domain, namely ('a * 'b) set and 'a => 'b; this means that it may be
wenzelm@11572
  1624
necessary to attach explicit type constraints;
nipkow@11307
  1625
wenzelm@12917
  1626
* HOL/Relation: the prefix name of the infix "O" has been changed from
wenzelm@12917
  1627
"comp" to "rel_comp"; INCOMPATIBILITY: a few theorems have been
wenzelm@12917
  1628
renamed accordingly (eg "compI" -> "rel_compI").
nipkow@12489
  1629
wenzelm@11487
  1630
* HOL: syntax translations now work properly with numerals and records
wenzelm@11487
  1631
expressions;
wenzelm@11474
  1632
wenzelm@12457
  1633
* HOL: bounded abstraction now uses syntax "%" / "\<lambda>" instead
wenzelm@12457
  1634
of "lam" -- INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@11474
  1635
wenzelm@11933
  1636
* HOL: got rid of some global declarations (potential INCOMPATIBILITY
wenzelm@11933
  1637
for ML tools): const "()" renamed "Product_Type.Unity", type "unit"
wenzelm@11933
  1638
renamed "Product_Type.unit";
wenzelm@11611
  1639
nipkow@12564
  1640
* HOL: renamed rtrancl_into_rtrancl2 to converse_rtrancl_into_rtrancl
nipkow@12564
  1641
wenzelm@12924
  1642
* HOL: removed obsolete theorem "optionE" (use "option.exhaust", or
wenzelm@12924
  1643
the "cases" method);
wenzelm@12924
  1644
wenzelm@12597
  1645
* HOL/GroupTheory: group theory examples including Sylow's theorem (by
webertj@15154
  1646
Florian Kammller);
wenzelm@12597
  1647
wenzelm@12608
  1648
* HOL/IMP: updated and converted to new-style theory format; several
wenzelm@12608
  1649
parts turned into readable document, with proper Isar proof texts and
wenzelm@12608
  1650
some explanations (by Gerwin Klein);
wenzelm@12597
  1651
wenzelm@12734
  1652
* HOL-Real: added Complex_Numbers (by Gertrud Bauer);
wenzelm@12734
  1653
wenzelm@12690
  1654
* HOL-Hyperreal is now a logic image;
wenzelm@12690
  1655
wenzelm@11611
  1656
wenzelm@12022
  1657
*** HOLCF ***
wenzelm@12022
  1658
wenzelm@12622
  1659
* Isar: consts/constdefs supports mixfix syntax for continuous
wenzelm@12622
  1660
operations;
wenzelm@12622
  1661
wenzelm@12622
  1662
* Isar: domain package adapted to new-style theory format, e.g. see
wenzelm@12622
  1663
HOLCF/ex/Dnat.thy;
wenzelm@12622
  1664
wenzelm@12622
  1665
* theory Lift: proper use of rep_datatype lift instead of ML hacks --
wenzelm@12280
  1666
potential INCOMPATIBILITY; now use plain induct_tac instead of former
wenzelm@12280
  1667
lift.induct_tac, always use UU instead of Undef;
wenzelm@12022
  1668
wenzelm@12597
  1669
* HOLCF/IMP: updated and converted to new-style theory;
wenzelm@12597
  1670
wenzelm@12022
  1671
wenzelm@11474
  1672
*** ZF ***
wenzelm@11474
  1673
wenzelm@12622
  1674
* Isar: proper integration of logic-specific tools and packages,
wenzelm@12622
  1675
including theory commands '(co)inductive', '(co)datatype',
wenzelm@12622
  1676
'rep_datatype', 'inductive_cases', as well as methods 'ind_cases',
wenzelm@12622
  1677
'induct_tac', 'case_tac', and 'typecheck' (with attribute 'TC');
wenzelm@12622
  1678
wenzelm@12622
  1679
* theory Main no longer includes AC; for the Axiom of Choice, base
wenzelm@12622
  1680
your theory on Main_ZFC;
wenzelm@12622
  1681
wenzelm@12622
  1682
* the integer library now covers quotients and remainders, with many
wenzelm@12622
  1683
laws relating division to addition, multiplication, etc.;
paulson@12563
  1684
wenzelm@12280
  1685
* ZF/UNITY: Chandy and Misra's UNITY is now available in ZF, giving a
wenzelm@12280
  1686
typeless version of the formalism;
wenzelm@12280
  1687
wenzelm@13025
  1688
* ZF/AC, Coind, IMP, Resid: updated and converted to new-style theory
wenzelm@13025
  1689
format;
wenzelm@12608
  1690
wenzelm@12280
  1691
* ZF/Induct: new directory for examples of inductive definitions,
wenzelm@12608
  1692
including theory Multiset for multiset orderings; converted to
wenzelm@12608
  1693
new-style theory format;
wenzelm@12177
  1694
wenzelm@13025
  1695
* ZF: many new theorems about lists, ordinals, etc.;

*** General ***
wenzelm@11474
  1699
wenzelm@12280
  1700
* Pure/kernel: meta-level proof terms (by Stefan Berghofer); reference
wenzelm@12280
  1701
variable proof controls level of detail: 0 = no proofs (only oracle
wenzelm@12280
  1702
dependencies), 1 = lemma dependencies, 2 = compact proof terms; see
wenzelm@12280
  1703
also ref manual for further ML interfaces;
wenzelm@12280
  1704
wenzelm@12280
  1705
* Pure/axclass: removed obsolete ML interface
wenzelm@12280
  1706
goal_subclass/goal_arity;
wenzelm@12280
  1707
wenzelm@12280
  1708
* Pure/syntax: new token syntax "num" for plain numerals (without "#"
wenzelm@12280
  1709
of "xnum"); potential INCOMPATIBILITY, since -0, -1 etc. are now
wenzelm@12280
  1710
separate tokens, so expressions involving minus need to be spaced
wenzelm@12280
  1711
properly;
wenzelm@12280
  1712
wenzelm@12312
  1713
* Pure/syntax: support non-oriented infixes, using keyword "infix"
wenzelm@12312
  1714
rather than "infixl" or "infixr";
wenzelm@12312
  1715
wenzelm@12312
  1716
* Pure/syntax: concrete syntax for dummy type variables admits genuine
wenzelm@12312
  1717
sort constraint specifications in type inference; e.g. "x::_::foo"
wenzelm@12312
  1718
ensures that the type of "x" is of sort "foo" (but not necessarily a
wenzelm@12312
  1719
type variable);
wenzelm@12280
  1720
wenzelm@12280
  1721
* Pure/syntax: print modes "type_brackets" and "no_type_brackets"
wenzelm@12280
  1722
control output of nested => (types); the default behavior is
wenzelm@12280
  1723
"type_brackets";
wenzelm@12280
  1724
wenzelm@12280
  1725
* Pure/syntax: builtin parse translation for "_constify" turns valued
wenzelm@11817
  1726
tokens into AST constants;
wenzelm@11474
  1727
wenzelm@12280
  1728
* Pure/syntax: prefer later declarations of translations and print
wenzelm@12280
  1729
translation functions; potential INCOMPATIBILITY: need to reverse
wenzelm@12280
  1730
multiple declarations for same syntax element constant;
wenzelm@12280
  1731
wenzelm@12832
  1732
* Pure/show_hyps reset by default (in accordance to existing Isar
wenzelm@12832
  1733
practice);
wenzelm@12832
  1734
wenzelm@12280
  1735
* Provers/classical: renamed addaltern to addafter, addSaltern to
wenzelm@12280
  1736
addSafter;
wenzelm@12280
  1737
wenzelm@12280
  1738
* Provers/clasimp: ``iff'' declarations now handle conditional rules
wenzelm@12280
  1739
as well;
wenzelm@12253
  1740
wenzelm@12538
  1741
* system: tested support for MacOS X; should be able to get Isabelle +
wenzelm@12538
  1742
Proof General to work in a plain Terminal after installing Poly/ML
wenzelm@12538
  1743
(e.g. from the Isabelle distribution area) and GNU bash alone
wenzelm@12538
  1744
(e.g. from http://www.apple.com); full X11, XEmacs and X-Symbol
wenzelm@12538
  1745
support requires further installations, e.g. from
wenzelm@12538
  1746
http://fink.sourceforge.net/);
wenzelm@12538
  1747
wenzelm@12280
  1748
* system: support Poly/ML 4.1.1 (able to manage larger heaps);
wenzelm@11551
  1749
wenzelm@12753
  1750
* system: reduced base memory usage by Poly/ML (approx. 20 MB instead
wenzelm@12753
  1751
of 40 MB), cf. ML_OPTIONS;
wenzelm@12753
  1752
wenzelm@11633
  1753
* system: Proof General keywords specification is now part of the
wenzelm@11633
  1754
Isabelle distribution (see etc/isar-keywords.el);
wenzelm@11633
  1755
wenzelm@12728
  1756
* system: support for persistent Proof General sessions (refrain from
wenzelm@12728
  1757
outdating all loaded theories on startup); user may create writable
wenzelm@12728
  1758
logic images like this: ``isabelle -q HOL Test'';
wenzelm@12597
  1759
wenzelm@11551
  1760
* system: smart selection of Isabelle process versus Isabelle
wenzelm@11572
  1761
interface, accommodates case-insensitive file systems (e.g. HFS+); may
wenzelm@11572
  1762
run both "isabelle" and "Isabelle" even if file names are badly
wenzelm@11572
  1763
damaged (executable inspects the case of the first letter of its own
wenzelm@11572
  1764
name); added separate "isabelle-process" and "isabelle-interface";
wenzelm@11551
  1765
wenzelm@12472
  1766
* system: refrain from any attempt at filtering input streams; no
wenzelm@12472
  1767
longer support ``8bit'' encoding of old isabelle font, instead proper
wenzelm@12472
  1768
iso-latin characters may now be used; the related isatools
wenzelm@12472
  1769
"symbolinput" and "nonascii" have disappeared as well;
wenzelm@12472
  1770
wenzelm@12472
  1771
* system: removed old "xterm" interface (the print modes "xterm" and
wenzelm@12472
  1772
"xterm_color" are still available for direct use in a suitable
wenzelm@12472
  1773

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES ***
nipkow@10224
  1781
paulson@11241
  1782
* HOL: please note that theories in the Library and elsewhere often use the
paulson@11241
  1783
new-style (Isar) format; to refer to their theorems in an ML script you must
wenzelm@12622
  1784
bind them to ML identifers by e.g.      val thm_name = thm "thm_name";
paulson@11241
  1785
wenzelm@11043
  1786
* HOL: inductive package no longer splits induction rule aggressively,
wenzelm@11043
  1787
but only as far as specified by the introductions given; the old
oheimb@11130
  1788
format may be recovered via ML function complete_split_rule or attribute
wenzelm@11043
  1789
'split_rule (complete)';
wenzelm@11043
  1790
wenzelm@10998
  1791
* HOL: induct renamed to lfp_induct, lfp_Tarski to lfp_unfold,
wenzelm@10998
  1792
gfp_Tarski to gfp_unfold;
nipkow@10224
  1793
paulson@10288
  1794
* HOL: contrapos, contrapos2 renamed to contrapos_nn, contrapos_pp;
paulson@10288
  1795
wenzelm@10858
  1796
* HOL: infix "dvd" now has priority 50 rather than 70 (because it is a
wenzelm@10858
  1797
relation); infix "^^" has been renamed "``"; infix "``" has been
wenzelm@10858
  1798
renamed "`"; "univalent" has been renamed "single_valued";
nipkow@10793
  1799
wenzelm@10998
  1800
* HOL/Real: "rinv" and "hrinv" replaced by overloaded "inverse"
wenzelm@10998
  1801
operation;
wenzelm@10998
  1802
nipkow@10868
  1803
* HOLCF: infix "`" has been renamed "$"; the symbol syntax is \<cdot>;
nipkow@10856
  1804
wenzelm@10391
  1805
* Isar: 'obtain' no longer declares "that" fact as simp/intro;
wenzelm@10391
  1806
wenzelm@10401
  1807
* Isar/HOL: method 'induct' now handles non-atomic goals; as a
wenzelm@10401
  1808
consequence, it is no longer monotonic wrt. the local goal context
wenzelm@10401
  1809
(which is now passed through the inductive cases);
wenzelm@10401
  1810
wenzelm@10976
  1811
* Document preparation: renamed standard symbols \<ll> to \<lless> and
wenzelm@10976
  1812
\<gg> to \<ggreater>;

wenzelm@10858
  1817
* \isabellestyle{NAME} selects version of Isabelle output (currently
wenzelm@10858
  1818
available: are "it" for near math-mode best-style output, "sl" for
wenzelm@10858
  1819
slanted text style, and "tt" for plain type-writer; if no
wenzelm@10858
  1820
\isabellestyle command is given, output is according to slanted
wenzelm@10858
  1821
type-writer);
wenzelm@10858
  1822
wenzelm@10322
  1823
* support sub/super scripts (for single symbols only), input syntax is
wenzelm@10322
  1824
like this: "A\<^sup>*" or "A\<^sup>\<star>";
wenzelm@10322
  1825
wenzelm@10858
  1826
* some more standard symbols; see Appendix A of the system manual for
wenzelm@11062
  1827
the complete list of symbols defined in isabellesym.sty;
wenzelm@10858
  1828
wenzelm@10998
  1829
* improved isabelle style files; more abstract symbol implementation
wenzelm@10998
  1830
(should now use \isamath{...} and \isatext{...} in custom symbol
wenzelm@10998
  1831

wenzelm@10634
  1834
state; Note that presentation of goal states does not conform to
wenzelm@10634
  1835
actual human-readable proof documents.  Please do not include goal

fonts;
wenzelm@10862
  1840
wenzelm@11050
  1841

wenzelm@10306
  1848
wenzelm@10547
  1849
* Pure: Isar now suffers initial goal statements to contain unbound
wenzelm@10547
  1850
schematic variables (this does not conform to actual readable proof
wenzelm@10547
  1851
documents, due to unpredictable outcome and non-compositional proof
wenzelm@10547
  1852
checking); users who know what they are doing may use schematic goals
wenzelm@10547
  1853
for Prolog-style synthesis of proven results;
wenzelm@10547
  1854
wenzelm@10391
  1855
* Pure: assumption method (an implicit finishing) now handles actual
wenzelm@10391
  1856
rules as well;
wenzelm@10391
  1857
wenzelm@10391
  1858
* Pure: improved 'obtain' --- moved to Pure, insert "that" into
wenzelm@10391
  1859
initial goal, declare "that" only as Pure intro (only for single
wenzelm@10391
  1860
steps); the "that" rule assumption may now be involved in implicit
wenzelm@10391
  1861
finishing, thus ".." becomes a feasible for trivial obtains;
wenzelm@10391
  1862
wenzelm@10391
  1863
* Pure: default proof step now includes 'intro_classes'; thus trivial
wenzelm@10391
  1864
instance proofs may be performed by "..";
wenzelm@10391
  1865
wenzelm@10391
  1866
* Pure: ?thesis / ?this / "..." now work for pure meta-level
wenzelm@10391
  1867
statements as well;
wenzelm@10306
  1868
wenzelm@11097
  1869
* Pure: more robust selection of calculational rules;
wenzelm@11097
  1870
wenzelm@10858
  1871
* Pure: the builtin notion of 'finished' goal now includes the ==-refl
wenzelm@10858
  1872
rule (as well as the assumption rule);
wenzelm@10858
  1873
wenzelm@10858
  1874
* Pure: 'thm_deps' command visualizes dependencies of theorems and
wenzelm@10858
  1875
lemmas, using the graph browser tool;
wenzelm@10858
  1876
wenzelm@10944
  1877
* Pure: predict failure of "show" in interactive mode;
wenzelm@10944
  1878
wenzelm@11016
  1879
* Pure: 'thms_containing' now takes actual terms as arguments;
wenzelm@11016
  1880
wenzelm@10401
  1881
* HOL: improved method 'induct' --- now handles non-atomic goals
wenzelm@10401
  1882
(potential INCOMPATIBILITY); tuned error handling;
wenzelm@10401
  1883
wenzelm@10557
  1884
* HOL: cases and induct rules now provide explicit hints about the
wenzelm@10547
  1885
number of facts to be consumed (0 for "type" and 1 for "set" rules);
wenzelm@10547
  1886
any remaining facts are inserted into the goal verbatim;
wenzelm@10547
  1887
wenzelm@10858
  1888
* HOL: local contexts (aka cases) may now contain term bindings as
wenzelm@10858
  1889
well; the 'cases' and 'induct' methods new provide a ?case binding for
wenzelm@10858
  1890
the result to be shown in each case;
wenzelm@10858
  1891
wenzelm@10770
  1892
* HOL: added 'recdef_tc' command;
wenzelm@10770
  1893
wenzelm@11016
  1894
* isatool convert assists in eliminating legacy ML scripts;

*** HOL ***
wenzelm@10245
  1898
wenzelm@10245
  1899
* HOL/Library: a collection of generic theories to be used together
wenzelm@10245
  1900
with main HOL; the theory loader path already includes this directory
wenzelm@10245
  1901
by default; the following existing theories have been moved here:
wenzelm@10245
  1902
HOL/Induct/Multiset, HOL/Induct/Acc (as Accessible_Part), HOL/While
wenzelm@10337
  1903
(as While_Combinator), HOL/Lex/Prefix (as List_Prefix);
wenzelm@10245
  1904
wenzelm@10966
  1905
* HOL/Unix: "Some aspects of Unix file-system security", a typical
wenzelm@10966
  1906
modelling and verification task performed in Isabelle/HOL +
wenzelm@10966
  1907
Isabelle/Isar + Isabelle document preparation (by Markus Wenzel).
wenzelm@10966
  1908
wenzelm@11094
  1909
* HOL/Algebra: special summation operator SUM no longer exists, it has
wenzelm@11094
  1910
been replaced by setsum; infix 'assoc' now has priority 50 (like
wenzelm@11094
  1911
'dvd'); axiom 'one_not_zero' has been moved from axclass 'ring' to
wenzelm@11094
  1912
'domain', this makes the theory consistent with mathematical
wenzelm@11094
  1913
literature;
wenzelm@11094
  1914
wenzelm@10514
  1915
* HOL basics: added overloaded operations "inverse" and "divide"
wenzelm@10726
  1916
(infix "/"), syntax for generic "abs" operation, generic summation
wenzelm@11094
  1917
operator \<Sum>;
wenzelm@10452
  1918
wenzelm@10391
  1919
* HOL/typedef: simplified package, provide more useful rules (see also
wenzelm@10391
  1920
HOL/subset.thy);
wenzelm@10391
  1921
wenzelm@10915
  1922
* HOL/datatype: induction rule for arbitrarily branching datatypes is
wenzelm@10915
  1923
now expressed as a proper nested rule (old-style tactic scripts may
wenzelm@10915
  1924
require atomize_strip_tac to cope with non-atomic premises);
wenzelm@10915
  1925
wenzelm@10915
  1926
* HOL: renamed theory "Prod" to "Product_Type", renamed "split" rule
wenzelm@10915
  1927
to "split_conv" (old name still available for compatibility);
wenzelm@10915
  1928
wenzelm@10915
  1929
* HOL: improved concrete syntax for strings (e.g. allows translation
wenzelm@10915
  1930
rules with string literals);
wenzelm@10915
  1931
paulson@12245
  1932
* HOL-Real-Hyperreal: this extends HOL-Real with the hyperreals
paulson@12245
  1933
 and Fleuriot's mechanization of analysis, including the transcendental
paulson@12245
  1934
 functions for the reals;
paulson@10756
  1935
wenzelm@11094
  1936
* HOL/Real, HOL/Hyperreal: improved arithmetic simplification;

paulson@10474
  1939
*** CTT ***
paulson@10474
  1940
wenzelm@10547
  1941
* CTT: x-symbol support for Pi, Sigma, -->, : (membership); note that
wenzelm@10547
  1942
"lam" is displayed as TWO lambda-symbols
paulson@10474
  1943
wenzelm@10547
  1944
* CTT: theory Main now available, containing everything (that is, Bool
wenzelm@10547
  1945
and Arith);

*** General ***
wenzelm@10391
  1949
wenzelm@10547
  1950
* Pure: the Simplifier has been implemented properly as a derived rule
wenzelm@10547
  1951
outside of the actual kernel (at last!); the overall performance
wenzelm@10547
  1952
penalty in practical applications is about 50%, while reliability of
wenzelm@10547
  1953
the Isabelle inference kernel has been greatly improved;
wenzelm@10547
  1954
wenzelm@11112
  1955
* print modes "brackets" and "no_brackets" control output of nested =>
wenzelm@11112
  1956
(types) and ==> (props); the default behaviour is "brackets";
wenzelm@11112
  1957
wenzelm@10391
  1958
* Provers: fast_tac (and friends) now handle actual object-logic rules
wenzelm@10391
  1959
as assumptions as well;
wenzelm@10391
  1960
wenzelm@11124
  1961
* system: support Poly/ML 4.0;
wenzelm@11124
  1962
wenzelm@11124
  1963
* system: isatool install handles KDE version 1 or 2;
wenzelm@11124

  1965
wenzelm@10245

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES ***
paulson@8014
  1971
wenzelm@8848
  1972
* HOL: simplification of natural numbers is much changed; to partly
wenzelm@8848
  1973
recover the old behaviour (e.g. to prevent n+n rewriting to #2*n)
wenzelm@8848
  1974
issue the following ML commands:
wenzelm@8848
  1975
wenzelm@8848
  1976
  Delsimprocs Nat_Numeral_Simprocs.cancel_numerals;
wenzelm@8848
  1977
  Delsimprocs [Nat_Numeral_Simprocs.combine_numerals];
paulson@8788
  1978
wenzelm@10129
  1979
* HOL: simplification no longer dives into case-expressions; this is
wenzelm@10129
  1980
controlled by "t.weak_case_cong" for each datatype t;
wenzelm@10003
  1981
wenzelm@10003
  1982
* HOL: nat_less_induct renamed to less_induct;
wenzelm@10003
  1983
wenzelm@10003
  1984
* HOL: systematic renaming of the SOME (Eps) rules, may use isatool
wenzelm@10003
  1985
fixsome to patch .thy and .ML sources automatically;
paulson@8967
  1986
wenzelm@10003
  1987
  select_equality  -> some_equality
wenzelm@10003
  1988
  select_eq_Ex     -> some_eq_ex
wenzelm@10003
  1989
  selectI2EX       -> someI2_ex
wenzelm@10003
  1990
  selectI2         -> someI2
wenzelm@10003
  1991
  selectI          -> someI
wenzelm@10003
  1992
  select1_equality -> some1_equality
wenzelm@10003
  1993
  Eps_sym_eq       -> some_sym_eq_trivial
wenzelm@10003
  1994
  Eps_eq           -> some_eq_trivial
wenzelm@10003
  1995
wenzelm@10003
  1996
* HOL: exhaust_tac on datatypes superceded by new generic case_tac;
wenzelm@10003
  1997
wenzelm@10003
  1998
* HOL: removed obsolete theorem binding expand_if (refer to split_if
wenzelm@10003
  1999
instead);
wenzelm@10003
  2000
wenzelm@10003
  2001
* HOL: the recursion equations generated by 'recdef' are now called
wenzelm@10003
  2002
f.simps instead of f.rules;
wenzelm@10003
  2003
wenzelm@10003
  2004
* HOL: qed_spec_mp now also handles bounded ALL as well;
wenzelm@10003
  2005
wenzelm@10003
  2006
* HOL: 0 is now overloaded, so the type constraint ":: nat" may
wenzelm@10003
  2007
sometimes be needed;
wenzelm@10003
  2008
wenzelm@10003
  2009
* HOL: the constant for "f``x" is now "image" rather than "op ``";
paulson@8014
  2010
paulson@10065
  2011
* HOL: the constant for "f-``x" is now "vimage" rather than "op -``";
paulson@10065
  2012
wenzelm@9330
  2013
* HOL: the disjoint sum is now "<+>" instead of "Plus"; the cartesian
wenzelm@9330
  2014
product is now "<*>" instead of "Times"; the lexicographic product is
wenzelm@9330
  2015
now "<*lex*>" instead of "**";
nipkow@8705
  2016
wenzelm@10003
  2017
* HOL: theory Sexp is now in HOL/Induct examples (it used to be part
wenzelm@10003
  2018
of main HOL, but was unused); better use HOL's datatype package;
paulson@9971
  2019
wenzelm@10137
  2020
* HOL: removed "symbols" syntax for constant "override" of theory Map;
wenzelm@10137
  2021
the old syntax may be recovered as follows:
wenzelm@10137
  2022
wenzelm@10137
  2023
  syntax (symbols)
wenzelm@10137
  2024
    override  :: "('a ~=> 'b) => ('a ~=> 'b) => ('a ~=> 'b)"
wenzelm@10137
  2025
      (infixl "\\<oplus>" 100)
wenzelm@10137
  2026
wenzelm@8848
  2027
* HOL/Real: "rabs" replaced by overloaded "abs" function;
wenzelm@8848
  2028
wenzelm@8887
  2029
* HOL/ML: even fewer consts are declared as global (see theories Ord,
wenzelm@8887
  2030
Lfp, Gfp, WF); this only affects ML packages that refer to const names
wenzelm@8887
  2031
internally;
wenzelm@8887
  2032
wenzelm@10003
  2033
* HOL and ZF: syntax for quotienting wrt an equivalence relation
wenzelm@10003
  2034
changed from A/r to A//r;
wenzelm@9908
  2035
wenzelm@10003
  2036
* ZF: new treatment of arithmetic (nat & int) may break some old
wenzelm@10003
  2037
proofs;
wenzelm@8921
  2038
wenzelm@10003
  2039
* Isar: renamed some attributes (RS -> THEN, simplify -> simplified,
wenzelm@10003
  2040
rulify -> rule_format, elimify -> elim_format, ...);
paulson@9542
  2041
wenzelm@9941
  2042
* Isar/Provers: intro/elim/dest attributes changed; renamed
wenzelm@9941
  2043
intro/intro!/intro!! flags to intro!/intro/intro? (in most cases, one
wenzelm@9937
  2044
should have to change intro!! to intro? only); replaced "delrule" by
wenzelm@9937
  2045
"rule del";
wenzelm@9437
  2046
wenzelm@9612
  2047
* Isar/HOL: renamed "intrs" to "intros" in inductive definitions;
wenzelm@9612
  2048
wenzelm@9437
  2049
* Provers: strengthened force_tac by using new first_best_tac;
oheimb@9402
  2050
wenzelm@10003
  2051
* LaTeX document preparation: several changes of isabelle.sty (see
wenzelm@10003
  2052
lib/texinputs);
wenzelm@8729
  2053
paulson@8014
  2054
wenzelm@8487
  2055
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@8358
  2056
wenzelm@9198
  2057
* formal comments (text blocks etc.) in new-style theories may now
wenzelm@9753
  2058
contain antiquotations of thm/prop/term/typ/text to be presented
wenzelm@9753
  2059
according to latex print mode; concrete syntax is like this:
wenzelm@9753
  2060
@{term[show_types] "f(x) = a + x"};
wenzelm@9198
  2061
wenzelm@8358
  2062
* isatool mkdir provides easy setup of Isabelle session directories,
wenzelm@8518
  2063
including proper document sources;
wenzelm@8358
  2064
wenzelm@8358
  2065
* generated LaTeX sources are now deleted after successful run
wenzelm@8358
  2066
(isatool document -c); may retain a copy somewhere else via -D option
wenzelm@8358
  2067
of isatool usedir;
wenzelm@8358
  2068
wenzelm@8566
  2069
* isatool usedir -D now lets isatool latex -o sty update the Isabelle
wenzelm@10003
  2070
style files, achieving self-contained LaTeX sources and simplifying
wenzelm@10003
  2071
LaTeX debugging;
wenzelm@8566
  2072
wenzelm@8518
  2073
* old-style theories now produce (crude) LaTeX output as well;
wenzelm@8358
  2074
wenzelm@9057
  2075
* browser info session directories are now self-contained (may be put
wenzelm@9437
  2076
on WWW server seperately); improved graphs of nested sessions; removed
wenzelm@9437
  2077
graph for 'all sessions';
wenzelm@9057
  2078
wenzelm@10003
  2079
* several improvements in isabelle style files; \isabellestyle{it}
wenzelm@10003
  2080
produces fake math mode output; \isamarkupheader is now \section by
wenzelm@10003
  2081
default; see lib/texinputs/isabelle.sty etc.;
wenzelm@9489
  2082
wenzelm@8358
  2083
wenzelm@8184
  2084
*** Isar ***
wenzelm@8184
  2085
wenzelm@10003
  2086
* Isar/Pure: local results and corresponding term bindings are now
wenzelm@10003
  2087
subject to Hindley-Milner polymorphism (similar to ML); this
wenzelm@10003
  2088
accommodates incremental type-inference very nicely;
wenzelm@8283
  2089
wenzelm@10003
  2090
* Isar/Pure: new derived language element 'obtain' supports
wenzelm@10003
  2091
generalized existence reasoning;
wenzelm@8621
  2092
wenzelm@10003
  2093
* Isar/Pure: new calculational elements 'moreover' and 'ultimately'
wenzelm@10003
  2094
support accumulation of results, without applying any rules yet;
wenzelm@10003
  2095
useful to collect intermediate results without explicit name
wenzelm@10003
  2096
references, and for use with transitivity rules with more than 2
wenzelm@10003
  2097
premises;
wenzelm@8184
  2098
wenzelm@10003
  2099
* Isar/Pure: scalable support for case-analysis type proofs: new
wenzelm@10003
  2100
'case' language element refers to local contexts symbolically, as
wenzelm@10003
  2101
produced by certain proof methods; internally, case names are attached
wenzelm@10003
  2102
to theorems as "tags";
wenzelm@8440
  2103
wenzelm@10003
  2104
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'hide' removes declarations from
wenzelm@9330
  2105
class/type/const name spaces;
wenzelm@9330
  2106
wenzelm@10003
  2107
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'defs' supports option "(overloaded)" to
wenzelm@9330
  2108
indicate potential overloading;
wenzelm@9330
  2109
wenzelm@10003
  2110
* Isar/Pure: changed syntax of local blocks from {{ }} to { };
wenzelm@8621
  2111
wenzelm@10003
  2112
* Isar/Pure: syntax of sorts made 'inner', i.e. have to write
wenzelm@10003
  2113
"{a,b,c}" instead of {a,b,c};
wenzelm@9011
  2114
wenzelm@10003
  2115
* Isar/Pure now provides its own version of intro/elim/dest
wenzelm@10003
  2116
attributes; useful for building new logics, but beware of confusion
wenzelm@10003
  2117
with the version in Provers/classical;
wenzelm@9612
  2118
wenzelm@10003
  2119
* Isar/Pure: the local context of (non-atomic) goals is provided via
wenzelm@10003
  2120
case name 'antecedent';
wenzelm@8440
  2121
wenzelm@10003
  2122
* Isar/Pure: removed obsolete 'transfer' attribute (transfer of thms
wenzelm@10003
  2123
to the current context is now done automatically);
wenzelm@9383
  2124
wenzelm@10003
  2125
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'method_setup' provides a simple interface
wenzelm@10003
  2126
for definining proof methods in ML;
wenzelm@9612
  2127
wenzelm@10003
  2128
* Isar/Provers: intro/elim/dest attributes changed; renamed
wenzelm@9941
  2129
intro/intro!/intro!! flags to intro!/intro/intro? (INCOMPATIBILITY, in
wenzelm@9941

most cases, one should have to change intro!! to intro? only);
wenzelm@9941
  2131
replaced "delrule" by "rule del";
wenzelm@8283
  2132
wenzelm@10003
  2133
* Isar/Provers: new 'hypsubst' method, plain 'subst' method and
wenzelm@10003
  2134
'symmetric' attribute (the latter supercedes [RS sym]);
wenzelm@10003
  2135
wenzelm@10003
  2136
* Isar/Provers: splitter support (via 'split' attribute and 'simp'
wenzelm@10003
  2137
method modifier); 'simp' method: 'only:' modifier removes loopers as
wenzelm@10003
  2138
well (including splits);
wenzelm@10003
  2139
wenzelm@10003
  2140
* Isar/Provers: Simplifier and Classical methods now support all kind
wenzelm@10003
  2141
of modifiers used in the past, including 'cong', 'iff', etc.
wenzelm@10003
  2142
wenzelm@10003
  2143
* Isar/Provers: added 'fastsimp' and 'clarsimp' methods (combination
wenzelm@10003
  2144
of Simplifier and Classical reasoner);
wenzelm@10003
  2145
wenzelm@10003
  2146
* Isar/HOL: new proof method 'cases' and improved version of 'induct'
wenzelm@10003
  2147
now support named cases; major packages (inductive, datatype, primrec,
wenzelm@10003
  2148
recdef) support case names and properly name parameters;
wenzelm@9612
  2149
wenzelm@10003
  2150
* Isar/HOL: new transitivity rules for substitution in inequalities --
wenzelm@10003
  2151
monotonicity conditions are extracted to be proven at end of
wenzelm@10003
  2152
calculations;
wenzelm@10003
  2153
wenzelm@10003
  2154
* Isar/HOL: removed 'case_split' thm binding, should use 'cases' proof
wenzelm@10003
  2155
method anyway;
wenzelm@10003
  2156
wenzelm@10003
  2157
* Isar/HOL: removed old expand_if = split_if; theorems if_splits =
wenzelm@10003
  2158
split_if split_if_asm; datatype package provides theorems foo.splits =
wenzelm@10003
  2159
foo.split foo.split_asm for each datatype;
wenzelm@10003
  2160
wenzelm@10003
  2161
* Isar/HOL: tuned inductive package, rename "intrs" to "intros"
wenzelm@10003
  2162
(potential INCOMPATIBILITY), emulation of mk_cases feature for proof
wenzelm@10003
  2163
scripts: new 'inductive_cases' command and 'ind_cases' method; (Note:
wenzelm@10003
  2164
use "(cases (simplified))" method in proper proof texts);
wenzelm@10003
  2165
wenzelm@10003
  2166
* Isar/HOL: added global 'arith_split' attribute for 'arith' method;
wenzelm@10003
  2167
wenzelm@10003
  2168
* Isar: names of theorems etc. may be natural numbers as well;
wenzelm@10003
  2169
wenzelm@10003
  2170
* Isar: 'pr' command: optional arguments for goals_limit and
wenzelm@9724
  2171
ProofContext.prems_limit; no longer prints theory contexts, but only
wenzelm@9724
  2172
proof states;
wenzelm@8487
  2173
wenzelm@10003
  2174
* Isar: diagnostic commands 'pr', 'thm', 'prop', 'term', 'typ' admit
wenzelm@8518
  2175
additional print modes to be specified; e.g. "pr(latex)" will print
wenzelm@8518
  2176
proof state according to the Isabelle LaTeX style;
wenzelm@8487
  2177
wenzelm@10003
  2178
* Isar: improved support for emulating tactic scripts, including proof
wenzelm@9612
  2179
methods 'rule_tac' etc., 'cut_tac', 'thin_tac', 'subgoal_tac',
wenzelm@9612
  2180
'rename_tac', 'rotate_tac', 'tactic', and 'case_tac' / 'induct_tac'
wenzelm@9612
  2181
(for HOL datatypes);
wenzelm@8534
  2182
wenzelm@10003
  2183
* Isar: simplified (more robust) goal selection of proof methods: 1st
wenzelm@10003
  2184
goal, all goals, or explicit goal specifier (tactic emulation); thus
wenzelm@10003
  2185
'proof method scripts' have to be in depth-first order;
wenzelm@8673
  2186
wenzelm@10003
  2187
* Isar: tuned 'let' syntax: replaced 'as' keyword by 'and';
wenzelm@8729
  2188
wenzelm@10003
  2189
* Isar: removed 'help' command, which hasn't been too helpful anyway;
wenzelm@10003
  2190
should instead use individual commands for printing items
wenzelm@10003
  2191
(print_commands, print_methods etc.);
wenzelm@9224
  2192
wenzelm@10003
  2193
* Isar: added 'nothing' --- the empty list of theorems;

* HOL/IMPP: extension of IMP with local variables and mutually

  2223
recursive procedures, by David von Oheimb;
wenzelm@10164
  2224
wenzelm@10003
  2225
* HOL/Lambda: converted into new-style theory and document;
paulson@9542
  2226
wenzelm@10003
  2227
* HOL/ex/Multiquote: example of multiple nested quotations and
wenzelm@10003
  2228
anti-quotations -- basically a generalized version of de-Bruijn
wenzelm@10003
  2229
representation; very useful in avoiding lifting of operations;
wenzelm@8848
  2230
wenzelm@9612
  2231
* HOL/record: added general record equality rule to simpset; fixed
wenzelm@9612
  2232
select-update simplification procedure to handle extended records as
wenzelm@9612
  2233
well; admit "r" as field name;
paulson@9542
  2234
paulson@8967
  2235
* HOL: 0 is now overloaded over the new sort "zero", allowing its use with
paulson@8967
  2236
other numeric types and also as the identity of groups, rings, etc.;
paulson@8967
  2237
paulson@8967
  2238
* HOL: new axclass plus_ac0 for addition with the AC-laws and 0 as identity.
paulson@8967
  2239
Types nat and int belong to this axclass;
paulson@8967
  2240
wenzelm@10003
  2241
* HOL: greatly improved simplification involving numerals of type nat, int, real:
paulson@8788
  2242
   (i + #8 + j) = Suc k simplifies to  #7 + (i + j) = k
paulson@8832
  2243
   i*j + k + j*#3*i     simplifies to  #4*(i*j) + k
paulson@8832
  2244
  two terms #m*u and #n*u are replaced by #(m+n)*u
paulson@8832
  2245
    (where #m, #n and u can implicitly be 1; this is simproc combine_numerals)
paulson@8832
  2246
  and the term/formula #m*u+x ~~ #n*u+y simplifies simplifies to #(m-n)+x ~~ y
paulson@8832
  2247
    or x ~~ #(n-m)+y, where ~~ is one of = < <= or - (simproc cancel_numerals);
paulson@8736
  2248
wenzelm@10003
  2249
* HOL: meson_tac is available (previously in ex/meson.ML); it is a
wenzelm@10003
  2250
powerful prover for predicate logic but knows nothing of clasets; see
wenzelm@10003

ex/mesontest.ML and ex/mesontest2.ML for example applications;
paulson@9835
  2252
wenzelm@8848
  2253
* HOL: new version of "case_tac" subsumes both boolean case split and
wenzelm@8440
  2254
"exhaust_tac" on datatypes; INCOMPATIBILITY: exhaust_tac no longer
wenzelm@8518
  2255
exists, may define val exhaust_tac = case_tac for ad-hoc portability;
wenzelm@8440
  2256
wenzelm@8848
  2257
* HOL: simplification no longer dives into case-expressions: only the
wenzelm@10129
  2258
selector expression is simplified, but not the remaining arms; to
wenzelm@10129
  2259
enable full simplification of case-expressions for datatype t, you may
wenzelm@10129
  2260
remove t.weak_case_cong from the simpset, either globally (Delcongs
wenzelm@10129
  2261
[thm"t.weak_case_cong"];) or locally (delcongs [...]).
nipkow@8603

wenzelm@8848
  2263
* HOL/recdef: the recursion equations generated by 'recdef' for
wenzelm@8848
  2264
function 'f' are now called f.simps instead of f.rules; if all
wenzelm@8848
  2265
termination conditions are proved automatically, these simplification
wenzelm@8848
  2266
rules are added to the simpset, as in primrec; rules may be named
wenzelm@8848
  2267
individually as well, resulting in a separate list of theorems for
wenzelm@8848
  2268
each equation;
wenzelm@8848
  2269
wenzelm@9489
  2270
* HOL/While is a new theory that provides a while-combinator. It
wenzelm@9489
  2271
permits the definition of tail-recursive functions without the
wenzelm@9489
  2272
provision of a termination measure. The latter is necessary once the
wenzelm@9489
  2273
invariant proof rule for while is applied.
nipkow@9457
  2274
wenzelm@10003
  2275
* HOL: new (overloaded) notation for the set of elements below/above

some element: {..u}, {..u(}, {l..}, {)l..}. See theory SetInterval.
nipkow@8925

  2280
* HOL: new tactic induct_thm_tac: thm -> string -> int -> tactic
nipkow@9746
  2281
induct_tac th "x1 ... xn" expects th to have a conclusion of the form
nipkow@9746
  2282
P v1 ... vn and abbreviates res_inst_tac [("v1","x1"),...,("vn","xn")] th;
nipkow@9746
  2283

  2284
* HOL/Real: "rabs" replaced by overloaded "abs" function;
nipkow@9737
  2285
wenzelm@10003
  2286
* HOL: theory Sexp now in HOL/Induct examples (it used to be part of
wenzelm@10003
  2287
main HOL, but was unused);
nipkow@8626
  2288
wenzelm@10003
  2289
* HOL: fewer consts declared as global (e.g. have to refer to
wenzelm@10003
  2290
"Lfp.lfp" instead of "lfp" internally; affects ML packages only);
wenzelm@8887
  2291
wenzelm@10003
  2292
* HOL: tuned AST representation of nested pairs, avoiding bogus output
wenzelm@10003
  2293
in case of overlap with user translations (e.g. judgements over
wenzelm@10003
  2294
tuples); (note that the underlying logical represenation is still
wenzelm@10003
  2295
bogus);

paulson@9542
  2299
wenzelm@10003
  2300

wenzelm@10003
  2301
expressions over nat and int;
paulson@9542
  2302
wenzelm@10003
  2303
* ZF: new treatment of nat to minimize type-checking: all operators
wenzelm@10003
  2304
coerce their operands to a natural number using the function natify,
wenzelm@10003
  2305
making the algebraic laws unconditional;
paulson@9542
  2306
wenzelm@10003
  2307
* ZF: as above, for int: operators coerce their operands to an integer
wenzelm@10003
  2308
using the function intify;
paulson@9542
  2309
wenzelm@10003
  2310
* ZF: the integer library now contains many of the usual laws for the
wenzelm@10003
  2311
orderings, including $<=, and monotonicity laws for $+ and $*;
paulson@9542
  2312
wenzelm@10003
  2313
* ZF: new example ZF/ex/NatSum to demonstrate integer arithmetic
wenzelm@10003
  2314
simplification;
paulson@9388
  2315
wenzelm@10003
  2316
* FOL and ZF: AddIffs now available, giving theorems of the form P<->Q
wenzelm@10003
  2317
to the simplifier and classical reasoner simultaneously;

assumptions; note that auto_tac uses blast_tac internally as well;
wenzelm@10003
  2324
wenzelm@10003
  2325
* Provers: new functions rulify/rulify_no_asm: thm -> thm for turning
wenzelm@10003

outer -->/All/Ball into ==>/!!; qed_spec_mp now uses rulify_no_asm;
wenzelm@10003
  2327
wenzelm@9941
  2328
* Provers: delrules now handles destruct rules as well (no longer need
wenzelm@9941
  2329
explicit make_elim);
wenzelm@9941
  2330
wenzelm@10003
  2331
* Provers: Blast_tac now warns of and ignores "weak elimination rules" e.g.
wenzelm@10003
  2332
  [| inj ?f;          ?f ?x = ?f ?y; ?x = ?y ==> ?W |] ==> ?W
wenzelm@10003
  2333
use instead the strong form,
wenzelm@10003
  2334
  [| inj ?f; ~ ?W ==> ?f ?x = ?f ?y; ?x = ?y ==> ?W |] ==> ?W
wenzelm@10003
  2335
in HOL, FOL and ZF the function cla_make_elim will create such rules
wenzelm@10003
  2336
from destruct-rules;
wenzelm@9489
  2337
wenzelm@9709
  2338
* Provers: Simplifier.easy_setup provides a fast path to basic

situations;
wenzelm@10003
  2349
wenzelm@9709
  2350
* system: compression of ML heaps images may now be controlled via -c
wenzelm@9709
  2351
option of isabelle and isatool usedir (currently only observed by
wenzelm@9709
  2352
Poly/ML);
wenzelm@8358
  2353
wenzelm@9981
  2354
* system: isatool installfonts may handle X-Symbol fonts as well (very
wenzelm@9981
  2355
useful for remote X11);
wenzelm@9981
  2356
wenzelm@9709
  2357
* system: provide TAGS file for Isabelle sources;
wenzelm@9052
  2358

wenzelm@9288
  2361
wenzelm@8994
  2362
* ML: renamed flags Syntax.trace_norm_ast to Syntax.trace_ast; global
wenzelm@8994
  2363
timing flag supersedes proof_timing and Toplevel.trace;
wenzelm@8994
  2364
wenzelm@10003
  2365
* ML: new combinators |>> and |>>> for incremental transformations
wenzelm@10003
  2366
with secondary results (e.g. certain theory extensions):
wenzelm@10003
  2367
wenzelm@9330
  2368
* ML: PureThy.add_defs gets additional argument to indicate potential

paulson@6922
  2381
* HOL: The THEN and ELSE parts of conditional expressions (if P then x else y)
paulson@6922
  2382
are no longer simplified.  (This allows the simplifier to unfold recursive
paulson@6922
  2383
functional programs.)  To restore the old behaviour, declare
wenzelm@7215

paulson@6922
  2386

complement;
paulson@5931

* HOL: the predicate "inj" is now defined by translation to "inj_on";
paulson@6174
  2391
berghofe@7847
  2392
* HOL/datatype: mutual_induct_tac no longer exists --
berghofe@7847

  use induct_tac "x_1 ... x_n" instead of mutual_induct_tac ["x_1", ..., "x_n"]
berghofe@7847
  2394
wenzelm@6386
  2395
* HOL/typedef: fixed type inference for representing set; type
wenzelm@6386
  2396
arguments now have to occur explicitly on the rhs as type constraints;
wenzelm@6386
  2397
wenzelm@6269
  2398
* ZF: The con_defs part of an inductive definition may no longer refer
wenzelm@6269
  2399
to constants declared in the same theory;
nipkow@6057
  2400
wenzelm@6269
  2401
* HOL, ZF: the function mk_cases, generated by the inductive
wenzelm@6269
  2402
definition package, has lost an argument.  To simplify its result, it
wenzelm@6269
  2403
uses the default simpset instead of a supplied list of theorems.

wenzelm@8729
  2408
        setSSolver addSSolver setSolver addSolver
nipkow@7619
  2409
is now  simpset * solver -> simpset  where `solver' is a new abstract type
nipkow@7619
  2410
for packaging solvers. A solver is created via
wenzelm@8729
  2411
        mk_solver: string -> (thm list -> int -> tactic) -> solver
nipkow@7619
  2412
where the string argument is only a comment.

* Provers/Arith/fast_lin_arith.ML contains a functor for creating a
wenzelm@6343
  2418
decision procedure for linear arithmetic. Currently it is used for
wenzelm@7593
  2419
types `nat', `int', and `real' in HOL (see below); it can, should and
wenzelm@7593
  2420
will be instantiated for other types and logics as well.
paulson@6069

nipkow@7324
  2422
* The simplifier now accepts rewrite rules with flexible heads, eg
nipkow@7324
  2423
     hom ?f ==> ?f(?x+?y) = ?f ?x + ?f ?y
nipkow@7324
  2424
  They are applied like any rule with a non-pattern lhs, i.e. by first-order
nipkow@7324
  2425
  matching.

* New Isabelle/Isar subsystem provides an alternative to traditional
wenzelm@7215
  2431
tactical theorem proving; together with the ProofGeneral/isar user
wenzelm@7215
  2432
interface it offers an interactive environment for developing human
wenzelm@7215
  2433
readable proof documents (Isar == Intelligible semi-automated
wenzelm@7886
  2434

wenzelm@7886
  2436
wenzelm@9612
  2437
* improved and simplified presentation of theories: better HTML markup
wenzelm@9612
  2438
(including colors), graph views in several sizes; isatool usedir now
wenzelm@9612
  2439
provides a proper interface for user theories (via -P option); actual
wenzelm@9612
  2440
document preparation based on (PDF)LaTeX is available as well (for
wenzelm@9612
  2441
new-style theories only); see isatool doc system for more information;
wenzelm@7215
  2442
wenzelm@7252
  2443
* native support for Proof General, both for classic Isabelle and
wenzelm@7986
  2444
Isabelle/Isar;
wenzelm@7215
  2445
wenzelm@7791
  2446
* ML function thm_deps visualizes dependencies of theorems and lemmas,
wenzelm@7791
  2447
using the graph browser tool;
wenzelm@7791
  2448
wenzelm@6751
  2449
* Isabelle manuals now also available as PDF;
wenzelm@6751
  2450
wenzelm@6449
  2451
* theory loader rewritten from scratch (may not be fully
wenzelm@6449
  2452
bug-compatible); old loadpath variable has been replaced by show_path,
wenzelm@6671
  2453
add_path, del_path, reset_path functions; new operations such as
wenzelm@7593
  2454
update_thy, touch_thy, remove_thy, use/update_thy_only (see also
wenzelm@7593
  2455
isatool doc ref);
wenzelm@6449
  2456
wenzelm@7215
  2457
* improved isatool install: option -k creates KDE application icon,
wenzelm@7215
  2458
option -p DIR installs standalone binaries;
wenzelm@7215
  2459
wenzelm@7215
  2460
* added ML_PLATFORM setting (useful for cross-platform installations);
wenzelm@7215
  2461
more robust handling of platform specific ML images for SML/NJ;
wenzelm@7215
  2462
wenzelm@7886
  2463
* the settings environment is now statically scoped, i.e. it is never
wenzelm@7986
  2464
created again in sub-processes invoked from isabelle, isatool, or
wenzelm@7886
  2465
Isabelle;
wenzelm@7886
  2466
wenzelm@7215
  2467
* path element specification '~~' refers to '$ISABELLE_HOME';
wenzelm@7215
  2468
wenzelm@6343
  2469
* in locales, the "assumes" and "defines" parts may be omitted if
wenzelm@6343
  2470
empty;
wenzelm@5973
  2471
wenzelm@6269
  2472
* new print_mode "xsymbols" for extended symbol support (e.g. genuine
wenzelm@6269
  2473
long arrows);
wenzelm@6259
  2474
wenzelm@6343
  2475
