New in this Isabelle release

wenzelm@14655

*** General ***
wenzelm@14655
     8
kleing@15350
     9
* Document preparation: new antiquotations @{lhs thm} and @{rhs thm}
kleing@15350
    10
  printing the lhs/rhs of definitions, equations, inequations etc. 
kleing@15350
    11
webertj@15287
    12
* isatool usedir: new option -f that allows specification of the ML
webertj@15287
    13
  file to be used by Isabelle; default is ROOT.ML.
webertj@15277
    14
nipkow@15130
    15
* Theory headers: the new header syntax for Isar theories is
nipkow@15130
    16
nipkow@15130
    17
  theory <name>
nipkow@15148
    18
  imports <theory1> ... <theoryn>
nipkow@15130
    19
  begin
nipkow@15130
    20
nipkow@15148
    21
  optionally also with a "files" section. The syntax
nipkow@15130
    22
nipkow@15130
    23
  theory <name> = <theory1> + ... + <theoryn>:
nipkow@15130
    24
nipkow@15130
    25
  will still be supported for some time but will eventually disappear.
nipkow@15130
    26
  The syntax of old-style theories has not changed.
nipkow@15130
    27
ballarin@15103
    28
* Provers/quasi.ML:  new transitivity reasoners for transitivity only
ballarin@15103
    29
  and quasi orders.
ballarin@15103
    30
ballarin@15076
    31
* Provers/trancl.ML:  new transitivity reasoner for transitive and
ballarin@15076
    32
  reflexive-transitive closure of relations.
ballarin@15076
    33
webertj@15163
    34
* Provers/blast.ML:  new reference depth_limit to make blast's depth
webertj@15163
    35
  limit (previously hard-coded with a value of 20) user-definable.
webertj@15163
    36
wenzelm@14655
    37
* Pure: considerably improved version of 'constdefs' command.  Now
wenzelm@14731
    38
  performs automatic type-inference of declared constants; additional
wenzelm@14731
    39
  support for local structure declarations (cf. locales and HOL
wenzelm@14731
    40
  records), see also isar-ref manual.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY: need
wenzelm@14731
    41
  to observe strictly sequential dependencies of definitions within a
wenzelm@14731
    42
  single 'constdefs' section; moreover, the declared name needs to be
wenzelm@14731
    43
  an identifier.  If all fails, consider to fall back on 'consts' and
wenzelm@14731
    44
  'defs' separately.
wenzelm@14655
    45
wenzelm@14698
    46
* Pure: improved indexed syntax and implicit structures.  First of
wenzelm@14731
    47
  all, indexed syntax provides a notational device for subscripted
wenzelm@14731
    48
  application, using the new syntax \<^bsub>term\<^esub> for arbitrary
wenzelm@14731
    49
  expressions.  Secondly, in a local context with structure
wenzelm@14731
    50
  declarations, number indexes \<^sub>n or the empty index (default
wenzelm@14731
    51
  number 1) refer to a certain fixed variable implicitly; option
wenzelm@14731
    52
  show_structs controls printing of implicit structures.  Typical
wenzelm@14731
    53
  applications of these concepts involve record types and locales.
wenzelm@14731
    54
wenzelm@14795
    55
* Pure: clear separation of logical types and nonterminals, where the
wenzelm@14795
    56
  latter may only occur in 'syntax' specifications or type
wenzelm@14795
    57
  abbreviations.  Before that distinction was only partially
wenzelm@14795
    58
  implemented via type class "logic" vs. "{}".  Potential
wenzelm@14795
    59
  INCOMPATIBILITY in rare cases of improper use of 'types'/'consts'
wenzelm@14795
    60
  instead of 'nonterminals'/'syntax'.  Some very exotic syntax
wenzelm@14816
    61
  specifications may require further adaption (e.g. Cube/Base.thy).
wenzelm@14816
    62
wenzelm@14854
    63
* Pure: removed obsolete type class "logic", use the top sort {}
wenzelm@14854
    64
  instead.  Note that non-logical types should be declared as
wenzelm@14854
    65
  'nonterminals' rather than 'types'.  INCOMPATIBILITY for new
wenzelm@14854
    66
  object-logic specifications.
wenzelm@14854
    67
wenzelm@15022
    68
* Pure: print_tac now outputs the goal through the trace channel.
wenzelm@15022
    69
wenzelm@15022
    70
* Pure: reference Namespace.unique_names included.  If true the
wenzelm@15022
    71
  (shortest) namespace-prefix is printed to disambiguate conflicts (as
wenzelm@15022
    72
  yet). If false the first entry wins (as during parsing). Default
wenzelm@15022
    73
  value is true.
schirmer@15018
    74
wenzelm@15033
    75
* Pure: tuned internal renaming of symbolic identifiers -- attach
wenzelm@15033
    76
  primes instead of base 26 numbers.
wenzelm@15033
    77
wenzelm@14816
    78
* Pure/Syntax: inner syntax includes (*(*nested*) comments*).
wenzelm@14816
    79
wenzelm@14816
    80
* Pure/Syntax: pretty pinter now supports unbreakable blocks,
wenzelm@14816
    81
  specified in mixfix annotations as "(00...)".
wenzelm@14816
    82
wenzelm@14816
    83
* Pure/Syntax: 'advanced' translation functions (parse_translation
wenzelm@14816
    84
  etc.) may depend on the signature of the theory context being
wenzelm@14816
    85
  presently used for parsing/printing, see also isar-ref manual.
wenzelm@14816
    86
wenzelm@15033
    87
* Pure/Simplifier: simplification procedures may now take the current
wenzelm@15033
    88
  simpset into account (cf. Simplifier.simproc(_i) / mk_simproc
wenzelm@15033
    89
  interface), which is very useful for calling the Simplifier
wenzelm@15033
    90
  recursively.  Minor INCOMPATIBILITY: the 'prems' argument of
wenzelm@15033
    91
  simprocs is gone -- use prems_of_ss on the simpset instead.
wenzelm@15033
    92
  Moreover, the low-level mk_simproc no longer applies Logic.varify
wenzelm@15033
    93
  internally, to allow for use in a context of fixed variables.
wenzelm@15033
    94
nipkow@15406
    95
* Pure/Simplifier: Command "find_rewrites" takes a string and lists all
nipkow@15406
    96
  equality theorems (not just those with attribute simp!) whose left-hand
nipkow@15406
    97
  side matches the term given via the string. In PG the command can be
nipkow@15406
    98
  activated via Isabelle -> Show me -> matching rewrites.
nipkow@15406
    99
wenzelm@15033
   100
* Provers: Simplifier and Classical Reasoner now support proof context
wenzelm@15033
   101
  dependent plug-ins (simprocs, solvers, wrappers etc.).  These extra
wenzelm@15033
   102
  components are stored in the theory and patched into the
wenzelm@15033
   103
  simpset/claset when used in an Isar proof context.  Context
wenzelm@15033
   104
  dependent components are maintained by the following theory
wenzelm@15033
   105
  operations:
wenzelm@15033
   106
wenzelm@15033
   107
    Simplifier.add_context_simprocs
wenzelm@15033
   108
    Simplifier.del_context_simprocs
wenzelm@15033
   109
    Simplifier.set_context_subgoaler
wenzelm@15033
   110
    Simplifier.reset_context_subgoaler
wenzelm@15033
   111
    Simplifier.add_context_looper
wenzelm@15033
   112
    Simplifier.del_context_looper
wenzelm@15033
   113
    Simplifier.add_context_unsafe_solver
wenzelm@15033
   114
    Simplifier.add_context_safe_solver
wenzelm@15033
   115
wenzelm@15033
   116
    Classical.add_context_safe_wrapper
wenzelm@15033
   117
    Classical.del_context_safe_wrapper
wenzelm@15033
   118
    Classical.add_context_unsafe_wrapper
wenzelm@15033
   119
    Classical.del_context_unsafe_wrapper
wenzelm@15033
   120
wenzelm@15033
   121
  IMPORTANT NOTE: proof tools (methods etc.) need to use
wenzelm@15033
   122
  local_simpset_of and local_claset_of to instead of the primitive
wenzelm@15033
   123
  Simplifier.get_local_simpset and Classical.get_local_claset,
wenzelm@15033
   124
  respectively, in order to see the context dependent fields!
wenzelm@14816
   125
wenzelm@14897
   126
* Document preparation: antiquotations now provide the option
wenzelm@14897
   127
  'locale=NAME' to specify an alternative context used for evaluating
wenzelm@14897
   128
  and printing the subsequent argument, as in @{thm [locale=LC]
wenzelm@14919
   129
  fold_commute}, for example.
wenzelm@14897
   130
wenzelm@14934
   131
* Document preparation: commands 'display_drafts' and 'print_drafts'
wenzelm@14934
   132
  perform simple output of raw sources.  Only those symbols that do
wenzelm@14934
   133
  not require additional LaTeX packages (depending on comments in
wenzelm@14934
   134
  isabellesym.sty) are displayed properly, everything else is left
wenzelm@14934
   135
  verbatim.  We use isatool display and isatool print as front ends;
wenzelm@14934
   136
  these are subject to the DVI_VIEWER and PRINT_COMMAND settings,
wenzelm@14934
   137
  respectively.
wenzelm@14934
   138
wenzelm@14917
   139
* ML: output via the Isabelle channels of writeln/warning/error
wenzelm@14917
   140
  etc. is now passed through Output.output, with a hook for arbitrary
wenzelm@14917
   141
  transformations depending on the print_mode (cf. Output.add_mode --
wenzelm@14917
   142
  the first active mode that provides a output function wins).
wenzelm@14917
   143
  Already formatted output may be embedded into further text via
wenzelm@14917
   144
  Output.raw; the result of Pretty.string_of/str_of and derived
wenzelm@14917
   145
  functions (string_of_term/cterm/thm etc.) is already marked raw to
wenzelm@14917
   146
  accommodate easy composition of diagnostic messages etc.
wenzelm@14917
   147
  Programmers rarely need to care about Output.output or Output.raw at
wenzelm@14917
   148
  all, with some notable exceptions: Output.output is required when
wenzelm@14917
   149
  bypassing the standard channels (writeln etc.), or in token
wenzelm@14917
   150
  translations to produce properly formatted results; Output.raw is
wenzelm@14917
   151
  required when capturing already output material that will eventually
wenzelm@14972
   152
  be presented to the user a second time.  For the default print mode,
wenzelm@14972
   153
  both Output.output and Output.raw have no effect.
wenzelm@14795
   154
wenzelm@14707
   155
ballarin@15127
   156
*** Isar ***
ballarin@15127
   157
ballarin@15127
   158
* Locales:
ballarin@15127
   159
  - "includes" disallowed in declaration of named locales (command "locale").
ballarin@15206
   160
  - Fixed parameter management in theorem generation for goals with "includes".
ballarin@15206
   161
    INCOMPATIBILITY: rarely, the generated theorem statement is different.
ballarin@15127
   162
 
schirmer@14700
   163
*** HOL ***
schirmer@14700
   164
nipkow@15242
   165
* Datatype induction via method `induct' now preserves the name of the
nipkow@15242
   166
  induction variable. For example, when proving P(xs::'a list) by induction
nipkow@15242
   167
  on xs, the induction step is now P(xs) ==> P(a#xs) rather than
nipkow@15242
   168
  P(list) ==> P(a#list) as previously.
nipkow@15242
   169
wenzelm@14731
   170
* HOL/record: reimplementation of records. Improved scalability for
wenzelm@14731
   171
  records with many fields, avoiding performance problems for type
wenzelm@14731
   172
  inference. Records are no longer composed of nested field types, but
wenzelm@14731
   173
  of nested extension types. Therefore the record type only grows
wenzelm@14731
   174
  linear in the number of extensions and not in the number of fields.
wenzelm@14731
   175
  The top-level (users) view on records is preserved.  Potential
wenzelm@14731
   176
  INCOMPATIBILITY only in strange cases, where the theory depends on
wenzelm@14731
   177
  the old record representation. The type generated for a record is
wenzelm@14731
   178
  called <record_name>_ext_type.
wenzelm@14731
   179
wenzelm@15022
   180
* HOL/record: Reference record_quick_and_dirty_sensitive can be
wenzelm@15022
   181
  enabled to skip the proofs triggered by a record definition or a
wenzelm@15022
   182
  simproc (if quick_and_dirty is enabled). Definitions of large
wenzelm@15022
   183
  records can take quite long.
wenzelm@15022
   184
wenzelm@15022
   185
* HOL/record: "record_upd_simproc" for simplification of multiple
wenzelm@15022
   186
  record updates enabled by default.  Moreover, trivial updates are
wenzelm@15022
   187
  also removed: r(|x := x r|) = r.  INCOMPATIBILITY: old proofs break
wenzelm@15022
   188
  occasionally, since simplification is more powerful by default.
schirmer@15012
   189
wenzelm@14878
   190
* HOL: symbolic syntax of Hilbert Choice Operator is now as follows:
wenzelm@14878
   191
wenzelm@14878
   192
  syntax (epsilon)
wenzelm@14878
   193
    "_Eps" :: "[pttrn, bool] => 'a"    ("(3\<some>_./ _)" [0, 10] 10)
wenzelm@14878
   194
wenzelm@14878
   195
  The symbol \<some> is displayed as the alternative epsilon of LaTeX
wenzelm@14878
   196
  and x-symbol; use option '-m epsilon' to get it actually printed.
wenzelm@14878
   197
  Moreover, the mathematically important symbolic identifier
wenzelm@14878
   198
  \<epsilon> becomes available as variable, constant etc.
wenzelm@14878
   199
nipkow@15361
   200
* HOL: "x > y" abbreviates "y < x" and "x >= y" abbreviates "y <= x".
nipkow@15361
   201
  Similarly for all quantifiers: "ALL x > y" etc.
nipkow@15361
   202
  The x-symbol for >= is \<ge>.
nipkow@15356
   203
nipkow@15046
   204
* HOL/SetInterval: The syntax for open intervals has changed:
nipkow@15046
   205
nipkow@15046
   206
  Old         New
nipkow@15046
   207
  {..n(}   -> {..<n}
nipkow@15046
   208
  {)n..}   -> {n<..}
nipkow@15046
   209
  {m..n(}  -> {m..<n}
nipkow@15046
   210
  {)m..n}  -> {m<..n}
nipkow@15046
   211
  {)m..n(} -> {m<..<n}
nipkow@15046
   212
nipkow@15046
   213
  The old syntax is still supported but will disappear in the future.
nipkow@15046
   214
  For conversion use the following emacs search and replace patterns:
nipkow@15046
   215
nipkow@15046
   216
  {)\([^\.]*\)\.\.  ->  {\1<\.\.}
nipkow@15046
   217
  \.\.\([^(}]*\)(}  ->  \.\.<\1}
nipkow@15046
   218
nipkow@15046
   219
  They are not perfect but work quite well.
nipkow@15046
   220
nipkow@15073
   221
* HOL: The syntax for 'setsum', summation over finite sets, has changed:
nipkow@15073
   222
nipkow@15073
   223
  The syntax for 'setsum (%x. e) A' used to be '\<Sum>x:A. e'
nipkow@15073
   224
  and is now either 'SUM x:A. e' or '\<Sum>x\<in>A. e'.
nipkow@15073
   225
nipkow@15073
   226
  There is new syntax for summation over finite sets:
nipkow@15046
   227
nipkow@15050
   228
  '\<Sum>x | P. e'    is the same as  'setsum (%x. e) {x. P}'
nipkow@15050
   229
  '\<Sum>x=a..b. e'   is the same as  'setsum (%x. e) {a..b}'
nipkow@15050
   230
  '\<Sum>x=a..<b. e'  is the same as  'setsum (%x. e) {a..<b}'
nipkow@15050
   231
  '\<Sum>x<k. e'      is the same as  'setsum (%x. e) {..<k}'
nipkow@15046
   232
nipkow@15046
   233
  Function 'Summation' over nat is gone, its syntax '\<Sum>i<k. e'
nipkow@15046
   234
  now translates into 'setsum' as above.
nipkow@15046
   235
nipkow@15319
   236
* HOL: Finite set induction: In Isar proofs, the insert case is now
nipkow@15319
   237
  "case (insert x F)" instead of the old counterintuitive "case (insert F x)".
nipkow@15319
   238
nipkow@15200
   239
* HOL/Simplifier:
nipkow@15200
   240
nipkow@15200
   241
  - Is now set up to reason about transitivity chains involving "trancl"
nipkow@15200
   242
  (r^+) and "rtrancl" (r^*) by setting up tactics provided by
nipkow@15200
   243
  Provers/trancl.ML as additional solvers.  INCOMPATIBILITY: old proofs break
nipkow@15200
   244
  occasionally as simplification may now solve more goals than previously.
nipkow@15200
   245
nipkow@15200
   246
  - Converts x <= y into x = y if assumption y <= x is present.  Works for
nipkow@15200
   247
  all partial orders (class "order"), in particular numbers and sets. For
nipkow@15200
   248
  linear orders (e.g. numbers) it treats ~ x < y just like y <= x.
wenzelm@15089
   249
schirmer@15423
   250
  - Simproc for "let x = a in f x"
schirmer@15423
   251
  If a is a free or bound variable or a constant then the let is unfolded.
schirmer@15423
   252
  Otherwise first a is simplified to a', and then f a' is simplified to
schirmer@15423
   253
  g. If possible we abstract a' from g arriving at "let x = a' in g' x",
schirmer@15423
   254
  otherwise we unfold the let and arrive at g. The simproc can be 
schirmer@15423
   255
  enabled/disabled by the reference use_let_simproc. Potential
schirmer@15423
   256
  INCOMPATIBILITY since simplification is more powerful by default.
schirmer@15423
   257

   286
* Provers/order.ML:  new efficient reasoner for partial and linear orders.
ballarin@14398
   287
  Replaces linorder.ML.
ballarin@14398
   288
wenzelm@14606
   289
* Pure: Greek letters (except small lambda, \<lambda>), as well as Gothic
wenzelm@14606
   290
  (\<aa>...\<zz>\<AA>...\<ZZ>), calligraphic (\<A>...\<Z>), and Euler
skalberg@14173
   291
  (\<a>...\<z>), are now considered normal letters, and can therefore
skalberg@14173
   292
  be used anywhere where an ASCII letter (a...zA...Z) has until
skalberg@14173
   293
  now. COMPATIBILITY: This obviously changes the parsing of some
skalberg@14173
   294
  terms, especially where a symbol has been used as a binder, say
skalberg@14173
   295
  '\<Pi>x. ...', which is now a type error since \<Pi>x will be parsed
skalberg@14173
   296
  as an identifier.  Fix it by inserting a space around former
skalberg@14173
   297
  symbols.  Call 'isatool fixgreek' to try to fix parsing errors in
skalberg@14173
   298
  existing theory and ML files.
skalberg@14171
   299
paulson@14237
   300
* Pure: Macintosh and Windows line-breaks are now allowed in theory files.
paulson@14237
   301
wenzelm@14731
   302
* Pure: single letter sub/superscripts (\<^isub> and \<^isup>) are now
wenzelm@14731
   303
  allowed in identifiers. Similar to Greek letters \<^isub> is now considered
wenzelm@14731
   304
  a normal (but invisible) letter. For multiple letter subscripts repeat
wenzelm@14731
   305
  \<^isub> like this: x\<^isub>1\<^isub>2.
kleing@14233
   306
kleing@14333
   307
* Pure: There are now sub-/superscripts that can span more than one
kleing@14333
   308
  character. Text between \<^bsub> and \<^esub> is set in subscript in
wenzelm@14606
   309
  ProofGeneral and LaTeX, text between \<^bsup> and \<^esup> in
wenzelm@14606
   310
  superscript. The new control characters are not identifier parts.
kleing@14333
   311
schirmer@14561
   312
* Pure: Control-symbols of the form \<^raw:...> will literally print the
wenzelm@14606
   313
  content of "..." to the latex file instead of \isacntrl... . The "..."
wenzelm@14606
   314
  may consist of any printable characters excluding the end bracket >.
schirmer@14361
   315
paulson@14237
   316
* Pure: Using new Isar command "finalconsts" (or the ML functions
paulson@14237
   317
  Theory.add_finals or Theory.add_finals_i) it is now possible to
paulson@14237
   318
  declare constants "final", which prevents their being given a definition
paulson@14237
   319
  later.  It is useful for constants whose behaviour is fixed axiomatically
skalberg@14224
   320
  rather than definitionally, such as the meta-logic connectives.
skalberg@14224
   321
wenzelm@14606
   322
* Pure: 'instance' now handles general arities with general sorts

   323
  (i.e. intersections of classes),
skalberg@14503
   324
kleing@14547
   325
* Presentation: generated HTML now uses a CSS style sheet to make layout
wenzelm@14731
   326
  (somewhat) independent of content. It is copied from lib/html/isabelle.css.
kleing@14547
   327
  It can be changed to alter the colors/layout of generated pages.

*** Isar ***
ballarin@14175
   331
ballarin@14508
   332
* Tactic emulation methods rule_tac, erule_tac, drule_tac, frule_tac,
ballarin@14508
   333
  cut_tac, subgoal_tac and thin_tac:
ballarin@14175
   334
  - Now understand static (Isar) contexts.  As a consequence, users of Isar
ballarin@14175
   335
    locales are no longer forced to write Isar proof scripts.
ballarin@14175
   336
    For details see Isar Reference Manual, paragraph 4.3.2: Further tactic
ballarin@14175
   337
    emulations.
ballarin@14175
   338
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: names of variables to be instantiated may no
ballarin@14211
   339
    longer be enclosed in quotes.  Instead, precede variable name with `?'.
ballarin@14211
   340
    This is consistent with the instantiation attribute "where".
ballarin@14211
   341
ballarin@14257
   342
* Attributes "where" and "of":
ballarin@14285
   343
  - Now take type variables of instantiated theorem into account when reading
ballarin@14285
   344
    the instantiation string.  This fixes a bug that caused instantiated
ballarin@14285
   345
    theorems to have too special types in some circumstances.
ballarin@14285
   346
  - "where" permits explicit instantiations of type variables.
ballarin@14257
   347
wenzelm@14556
   348
* Calculation commands "moreover" and "also" no longer interfere with
wenzelm@14556
   349
  current facts ("this"), admitting arbitrary combinations with "then"
wenzelm@14556
   350
  and derived forms.
kleing@14283
   351
ballarin@14211
   352
* Locales:
ballarin@14211
   353
  - Goal statements involving the context element "includes" no longer
ballarin@14211
   354
    generate theorems with internal delta predicates (those ending on
ballarin@14211
   355
    "_axioms") in the premise.
ballarin@14211
   356
    Resolve particular premise with <locale>.intro to obtain old form.
ballarin@14211
   357
  - Fixed bug in type inference ("unify_frozen") that prevented mix of target
ballarin@14211
   358
    specification and "includes" elements in goal statement.
ballarin@14254
   359
  - Rule sets <locale>.intro and <locale>.axioms no longer declared as
ballarin@14254
   360
    [intro?] and [elim?] (respectively) by default.
ballarin@14508
   361
  - Experimental command for instantiation of locales in proof contexts:
ballarin@14551
   362
        instantiate <label>[<attrs>]: <loc>
ballarin@14508
   363
    Instantiates locale <loc> and adds all its theorems to the current context
ballarin@14551
   364
    taking into account their attributes.  Label and attrs are optional
ballarin@14551
   365
    modifiers, like in theorem declarations.  If present, names of
ballarin@14551
   366
    instantiated theorems are qualified with <label>, and the attributes
ballarin@14551
   367
    <attrs> are applied after any attributes these theorems might have already.
ballarin@14551
   368
      If the locale has assumptions, a chained fact of the form
ballarin@14508
   369
    "<loc> t1 ... tn" is expected from which instantiations of the parameters
ballarin@14551
   370
    are derived.  The command does not support old-style locales declared
ballarin@14551
   371
    with "locale (open)".
ballarin@14551
   372
      A few (very simple) examples can be found in FOL/ex/LocaleInst.thy.
ballarin@14175
   373

   380
* Proof import: new image HOL4 contains the imported library from
kleing@14624
   381
  the HOL4 system with about 2500 theorems. It is imported by
kleing@14624
   382
  replaying proof terms produced by HOL4 in Isabelle. The HOL4 image
kleing@14624
   383
  can be used like any other Isabelle image.  See

   384
  HOL/Import/HOL/README for more information.
kleing@14624
   385
ballarin@14398
   386
* Simplifier:
ballarin@14398
   387
  - Much improved handling of linear and partial orders.
ballarin@14398
   388
    Reasoners for linear and partial orders are set up for type classes
ballarin@14398
   389
    "linorder" and "order" respectively, and are added to the default simpset
ballarin@14398
   390
    as solvers.  This means that the simplifier can build transitivity chains
ballarin@14398
   391
    to solve goals from the assumptions.
ballarin@14398
   392
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: old proofs break occasionally.  Typically, applications
ballarin@14398
   393
    of blast or auto after simplification become unnecessary because the goal
ballarin@14398
   394
    is solved by simplification already.
ballarin@14398
   395
wenzelm@14731
   396
* Numerics: new theory Ring_and_Field contains over 250 basic numerical laws,
paulson@14389
   397
    all proved in axiomatic type classes for semirings, rings and fields.
paulson@14389
   398
paulson@14389
   399
* Numerics:
paulson@14389
   400
  - Numeric types (nat, int, and in HOL-Complex rat, real, complex, etc.) are
wenzelm@14731
   401
    now formalized using the Ring_and_Field theory mentioned above.
paulson@14389
   402
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: simplification and arithmetic behaves somewhat differently
paulson@14389
   403
    than before, because now they are set up once in a generic manner.
wenzelm@14731
   404
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: many type-specific arithmetic laws have gone.
paulson@14480
   405
    Look for the general versions in Ring_and_Field (and Power if they concern
paulson@14480
   406
    exponentiation).
paulson@14389
   407
paulson@14401
   408
* Type "rat" of the rational numbers is now available in HOL-Complex.
paulson@14389
   409
schirmer@14255
   410
* Records:
schirmer@14255
   411
  - Record types are now by default printed with their type abbreviation
schirmer@14255
   412
    instead of the list of all field types. This can be configured via
schirmer@14255
   413
    the reference "print_record_type_abbr".
wenzelm@14731
   414
  - Simproc "record_upd_simproc" for simplification of multiple updates added
schirmer@14255
   415
    (not enabled by default).
schirmer@14427
   416
  - Simproc "record_ex_sel_eq_simproc" to simplify EX x. sel r = x resp.
schirmer@14427
   417
    EX x. x = sel r to True (not enabled by default).
schirmer@14255
   418
  - Tactic "record_split_simp_tac" to split and simplify records added.
wenzelm@14731
   419
kleing@14136
   420
* 'specification' command added, allowing for definition by
skalberg@14224
   421
  specification.  There is also an 'ax_specification' command that
skalberg@14224
   422
  introduces the new constants axiomatically.

* HOL-Matrix: a first theory for matrices in HOL with an application of
kleing@14610
   432
  matrix theory to linear programming.
kleing@14136
   433
nipkow@14380
   434
* Unions and Intersections:
nipkow@15119
   435
  The latex output syntax of UN and INT has been changed
nipkow@15119
   436
  from "\Union x \in A. B" to "\Union_{x \in A} B"
nipkow@15119
   437
  i.e. the index formulae has become a subscript.
nipkow@15119
   438
  Similarly for "\Union x. B", and for \Inter instead of \Union.
nipkow@14380
   439
kleing@14418
   440
* Unions and Intersections over Intervals:
wenzelm@14731
   441
  There is new short syntax "UN i<=n. A" for "UN i:{0..n}. A". There is
wenzelm@14731
   442
  also an x-symbol version with subscripts "\<Union>\<^bsub>i <= n\<^esub>. A"
kleing@14418
   443
  like in normal math, and corresponding versions for < and for intersection.
kleing@14418
   444
paulson@14401
   445
* ML: the legacy theory structures Int and List have been removed. They had
paulson@14401
   446
  conflicted with ML Basis Library structures having the same names.
nipkow@14380
   447
webertj@14464
   448
* 'refute' command added to search for (finite) countermodels.  Only works
webertj@14464
   449
  for a fragment of HOL.  The installation of an external SAT solver is
webertj@14464
   450
  highly recommended.  See "HOL/Refute.thy" for details.
webertj@14464
   451
berghofe@14602
   452
* 'quickcheck' command: Allows to find counterexamples by evaluating
berghofe@14602
   453
  formulae under an assignment of free variables to random values.
berghofe@14602
   454
  In contrast to 'refute', it can deal with inductive datatypes,
berghofe@14602
   455
  but cannot handle quantifiers. See "HOL/ex/Quickcheck_Examples.thy"
berghofe@14602
   456
  for examples.

* Provers/simplifier:
berghofe@13618
   471
nipkow@13781
   472
  - Completely reimplemented method simp (ML: Asm_full_simp_tac):
berghofe@13618
   473
    Assumptions are now subject to complete mutual simplification,
berghofe@13618
   474
    not just from left to right. The simplifier now preserves
berghofe@13618
   475
    the order of assumptions.
berghofe@13618
   476
berghofe@13618
   477
    Potential INCOMPATIBILITY:
berghofe@13618
   478
nipkow@13781
   479
    -- simp sometimes diverges where the old version did
nipkow@13781
   480
       not, e.g. invoking simp on the goal
berghofe@13618
   481
berghofe@13618
   482
        [| P (f x); y = x; f x = f y |] ==> Q
berghofe@13618
   483
nipkow@13781
   484
       now gives rise to the infinite reduction sequence
nipkow@13781
   485
nipkow@13781
   486
        P(f x) --(f x = f y)--> P(f y) --(y = x)--> P(f x) --(f x = f y)--> ...
nipkow@13781
   487
nipkow@13781
   488
       Using "simp (asm_lr)" (ML: Asm_lr_simp_tac) instead often solves this
nipkow@13781
   489
       kind of problem.
nipkow@13781
   490
nipkow@13781
   491
    -- Tactics combining classical reasoner and simplification (such as auto)
nipkow@13781
   492
       are also affected by this change, because many of them rely on
nipkow@13781
   493
       simp. They may sometimes diverge as well or yield a different numbers
nipkow@13781
   494
       of subgoals. Try to use e.g. force, fastsimp, or safe instead of auto
nipkow@13781
   495
       in case of problems. Sometimes subsequent calls to the classical
nipkow@13781
   496
       reasoner will fail because a preceeding call to the simplifier too
nipkow@13781
   497
       eagerly simplified the goal, e.g. deleted redundant premises.
berghofe@13618
   498
berghofe@13618
   499
  - The simplifier trace now shows the names of the applied rewrite rules
berghofe@13618
   500
nipkow@13829
   501
  - You can limit the number of recursive invocations of the simplifier
nipkow@13829
   502
    during conditional rewriting (where the simplifie tries to solve the
nipkow@13829
   503
    conditions before applying the rewrite rule):
nipkow@13829
   504
    ML "simp_depth_limit := n"
nipkow@13829
   505
    where n is an integer. Thus you can force termination where previously
nipkow@13829
   506
    the simplifier would diverge.
nipkow@13829
   507
ballarin@13835
   508
  - Accepts free variables as head terms in congruence rules.  Useful in Isar.
nipkow@13829
   509
ballarin@13938
   510
  - No longer aborts on failed congruence proof.  Instead, the

The rules are ordered by how closely they match the subgoal.
nipkow@13815
   526
In particular, rules that solve a subgoal outright are displayed first
nipkow@13815
   527
(or rather last, the way they are printed).

* Pure: New flag trace_unify_fail causes unification to print
nipkow@13781
   531
diagnostic information (PG: in trace buffer) when it fails. This is
nipkow@13781
   532
useful for figuring out why single step proofs like rule, erule or
nipkow@13781
   533
assumption failed.
nipkow@13781
   534
nipkow@13815
   535
* Pure: Locale specifications now produce predicate definitions
wenzelm@13410
   536
according to the body of text (covering assumptions modulo local
wenzelm@13410
   537
definitions); predicate "loc_axioms" covers newly introduced text,
wenzelm@13410
   538
while "loc" is cumulative wrt. all included locale expressions; the
wenzelm@13410
   539
latter view is presented only on export into the global theory
wenzelm@13410
   540
context; potential INCOMPATIBILITY, use "(open)" option to fall back
wenzelm@13410
   541
on the old view without predicates;
wenzelm@13410
   542
wenzelm@13459
   543
* Pure: predefined locales "var" and "struct" are useful for sharing
wenzelm@13459
   544
parameters (as in CASL, for example); just specify something like
wenzelm@13459
   545
``var x + var y + struct M'' as import;
wenzelm@13459
   546
wenzelm@13463
   547
* Pure: improved thms_containing: proper indexing of facts instead of
wenzelm@13463
   548
raw theorems; check validity of results wrt. current name space;
wenzelm@13463
   549
include local facts of proof configuration (also covers active
wenzelm@13541
   550
locales), cover fixed variables in index; may use "_" in term
wenzelm@13541
   551
specification; an optional limit for the number of printed facts may
wenzelm@13541
   552
be given (the default is 40);
wenzelm@13541
   553
wenzelm@13541
   554

   555
(batch-mode only);
wenzelm@13540
   556
wenzelm@13463
   557
* Provers: improved induct method: assumptions introduced by case
wenzelm@13463
   558
"foo" are split into "foo.hyps" (from the rule) and "foo.prems" (from
wenzelm@13463
   559
the goal statement); "foo" still refers to all facts collectively;
wenzelm@13463
   560
paulson@13550
   561
* Provers: the function blast.overloaded has been removed: all constants
paulson@13550
   562
are regarded as potentially overloaded, which improves robustness in exchange
paulson@13550
   563
for slight decrease in efficiency;

*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@11572
   690
wenzelm@11842
   691
* greatly simplified document preparation setup, including more
wenzelm@11842
   692
graceful interpretation of isatool usedir -i/-d/-D options, and more
wenzelm@11842
   693
instructive isatool mkdir; users should basically be able to get
wenzelm@12899
   694
started with "isatool mkdir HOL Test && isatool make"; alternatively,
wenzelm@12899
   695
users may run a separate document processing stage manually like this:
wenzelm@12899
   696
"isatool usedir -D output HOL Test && isatool document Test/output";
wenzelm@11842
   697
wenzelm@11842
   698
* theory dependency graph may now be incorporated into documents;
wenzelm@11842
   699
isatool usedir -g true will produce session_graph.eps/.pdf for use

wenzelm@11864

   722
* Pure/Provers: improved proof by cases and induction;
wenzelm@12280
   723
  - 'case' command admits impromptu naming of parameters (such as
wenzelm@12280
   724
    "case (Suc n)");
wenzelm@12280
   725
  - 'induct' method divinates rule instantiation from the inductive
wenzelm@12280
   726
    claim; no longer requires excessive ?P bindings for proper
wenzelm@12280
   727
    instantiation of cases;
wenzelm@12280
   728
  - 'induct' method properly enumerates all possibilities of set/type
wenzelm@12280
   729
    rules; as a consequence facts may be also passed through *type*
wenzelm@12280
   730
    rules without further ado;
wenzelm@12280
   731
  - 'induct' method now derives symbolic cases from the *rulified*
wenzelm@12280
   732
    rule (before it used to rulify cases stemming from the internal
wenzelm@12280
   733
    atomized version); this means that the context of a non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
   734
    statement becomes is included in the hypothesis, avoiding the
wenzelm@12280
   735
    slightly cumbersome show "PROP ?case" form;
wenzelm@12280
   736
  - 'induct' may now use elim-style induction rules without chaining
wenzelm@12280
   737
    facts, using ``missing'' premises from the goal state; this allows
wenzelm@12280
   738
    rules stemming from inductive sets to be applied in unstructured
wenzelm@12280
   739
    scripts, while still benefitting from proper handling of non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
   740
    statements; NB: major inductive premises need to be put first, all
wenzelm@12280
   741
    the rest of the goal is passed through the induction;
wenzelm@12280
   742
  - 'induct' proper support for mutual induction involving non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
   743
    rule statements (uses the new concept of simultaneous goals, see
wenzelm@12280
   744
    below);
wenzelm@12853
   745
  - append all possible rule selections, but only use the first
wenzelm@12853
   746
    success (no backtracking);
wenzelm@11995
   747
  - removed obsolete "(simplified)" and "(stripped)" options of methods;
wenzelm@12754
   748
  - undeclared rule case names default to numbers 1, 2, 3, ...;
wenzelm@12754
   749
  - added 'print_induct_rules' (covered by help item in recent Proof
wenzelm@12754
   750
    General versions);
wenzelm@11995
   751
  - moved induct/cases attributes to Pure, methods to Provers;
wenzelm@11995
   752
  - generic method setup instantiated for FOL and HOL;
wenzelm@11986
   753
wenzelm@12163
   754
* Pure: support multiple simultaneous goal statements, for example
wenzelm@12163
   755
"have a: A and b: B" (same for 'theorem' etc.); being a pure
wenzelm@12163
   756
meta-level mechanism, this acts as if several individual goals had
wenzelm@12163
   757
been stated separately; in particular common proof methods need to be
wenzelm@12163
   758
repeated in order to cover all claims; note that a single elimination
wenzelm@12163
   759
step is *not* sufficient to establish the two conjunctions, so this
wenzelm@12163
   760
fails:
wenzelm@12163
   761
wenzelm@12163
   762
  assume "A & B" then have A and B ..   (*".." fails*)
wenzelm@12163
   763
wenzelm@12163
   764
better use "obtain" in situations as above; alternative refer to
wenzelm@12163
   765
multi-step methods like 'auto', 'simp_all', 'blast+' etc.;
wenzelm@12163
   766
wenzelm@12078
   767
* Pure: proper integration with ``locales''; unlike the original
webertj@15154
   768
version by Florian Kammller, Isar locales package high-level proof
wenzelm@12078
   769
contexts rather than raw logical ones (e.g. we admit to include
wenzelm@12280
   770
attributes everywhere); operations on locales include merge and
wenzelm@12964
   771
rename; support for implicit arguments (``structures''); simultaneous
wenzelm@12964
   772
type-inference over imports and text; see also HOL/ex/Locales.thy for
wenzelm@12964
   773
some examples;
wenzelm@12078
   774
wenzelm@12707
   775
* Pure: the following commands have been ``localized'', supporting a
wenzelm@12707
   776
target locale specification "(in name)": 'lemma', 'theorem',
wenzelm@12707
   777
'corollary', 'lemmas', 'theorems', 'declare'; the results will be
wenzelm@12707
   778
stored both within the locale and at the theory level (exported and
wenzelm@12707
   779
qualified by the locale name);
wenzelm@12707
   780
wenzelm@12964
   781
* Pure: theory goals may now be specified in ``long'' form, with
wenzelm@12964
   782
ad-hoc contexts consisting of arbitrary locale elements. for example
wenzelm@12964
   783
``lemma foo: fixes x assumes "A x" shows "B x"'' (local syntax and
wenzelm@12964
   784
definitions may be given, too); the result is a meta-level rule with
wenzelm@12964
   785
the context elements being discharged in the obvious way;
wenzelm@12964
   786
wenzelm@12964
   787
* Pure: new proof command 'using' allows to augment currently used
wenzelm@12964
   788
facts after a goal statement ('using' is syntactically analogous to
wenzelm@12964
   789
'apply', but acts on the goal's facts only); this allows chained facts
wenzelm@12964
   790
to be separated into parts given before and after a claim, as in
wenzelm@12964
   791
``from a and b have C using d and e <proof>'';
wenzelm@12078
   792
wenzelm@11722
   793
* Pure: renamed "antecedent" case to "rule_context";
wenzelm@11722
   794
wenzelm@12964
   795
* Pure: new 'judgment' command records explicit information about the
wenzelm@12964
   796
object-logic embedding (used by several tools internally); no longer
wenzelm@12964
   797
use hard-wired "Trueprop";
wenzelm@12964
   798
wenzelm@11738
   799
* Pure: added 'corollary' command;
wenzelm@11738
   800
wenzelm@11722
   801
* Pure: fixed 'token_translation' command;
wenzelm@11722
   802
wenzelm@11899
   803
* Pure: removed obsolete 'exported' attribute;
wenzelm@11899
   804
wenzelm@11933
   805
* Pure: dummy pattern "_" in is/let is now automatically lifted over
wenzelm@11933
   806
bound variables: "ALL x. P x --> Q x" (is "ALL x. _ --> ?C x")
wenzelm@11899
   807
supersedes more cumbersome ... (is "ALL x. _ x --> ?C x");
wenzelm@11899
   808
wenzelm@11952
   809
* Pure: method 'atomize' presents local goal premises as object-level
wenzelm@11952
   810
statements (atomic meta-level propositions); setup controlled via
wenzelm@11952
   811
rewrite rules declarations of 'atomize' attribute; example
wenzelm@11952
   812
application: 'induct' method with proper rule statements in improper
wenzelm@11952
   813
proof *scripts*;
wenzelm@11952
   814
wenzelm@12106
   815
* Pure: emulation of instantiation tactics (rule_tac, cut_tac, etc.)
wenzelm@12106
   816
now consider the syntactic context of assumptions, giving a better
wenzelm@12106
   817
chance to get type-inference of the arguments right (this is
wenzelm@12106
   818
especially important for locales);
wenzelm@12106
   819
wenzelm@12312
   820
* Pure: "sorry" no longer requires quick_and_dirty in interactive
wenzelm@12312
   821
mode;
wenzelm@12312
   822
wenzelm@12405
   823
* Pure/obtain: the formal conclusion "thesis", being marked as
wenzelm@12405
   824
``internal'', may no longer be reference directly in the text;
wenzelm@12405
   825
potential INCOMPATIBILITY, may need to use "?thesis" in rare
wenzelm@12405
   826
situations;
wenzelm@12405
   827
wenzelm@12405
   828
* Pure: generic 'sym' attribute which declares a rule both as pure
wenzelm@12405
   829
'elim?' and for the 'symmetric' operation;
wenzelm@12405
   830
wenzelm@12877
   831
* Pure: marginal comments ``--'' may now occur just anywhere in the
wenzelm@12877
   832
text; the fixed correlation with particular command syntax has been
wenzelm@12877
   833
discontinued;
wenzelm@12877
   834
berghofe@13023
   835
* Pure: new method 'rules' is particularly well-suited for proof
berghofe@13023
   836
search in intuitionistic logic; a bit slower than 'blast' or 'fast',
berghofe@13023
   837
but often produces more compact proof terms with less detours;
berghofe@13023
   838
wenzelm@12364
   839
* Pure/Provers/classical: simplified integration with pure rule
wenzelm@12364
   840
attributes and methods; the classical "intro?/elim?/dest?"
wenzelm@12364
   841
declarations coincide with the pure ones; the "rule" method no longer
wenzelm@12364
   842
includes classically swapped intros; "intro" and "elim" methods no
wenzelm@12364
   843
longer pick rules from the context; also got rid of ML declarations
wenzelm@12364
   844
AddXIs/AddXEs/AddXDs; all of this has some potential for
wenzelm@12364
   845
INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12364
   846
wenzelm@12405
   847
* Provers/classical: attribute 'swapped' produces classical inversions
wenzelm@12405
   848
of introduction rules;
wenzelm@12405
   849
wenzelm@12364
   850
* Provers/simplifier: 'simplified' attribute may refer to explicit
wenzelm@12364
   851
rules instead of full simplifier context; 'iff' attribute handles
wenzelm@12364
   852
conditional rules;
wenzelm@11936
   853
wenzelm@11745
   854
* HOL: 'typedef' now allows alternative names for Rep/Abs morphisms;
wenzelm@11745
   855
wenzelm@11690
   856
* HOL: 'recdef' now fails on unfinished automated proofs, use
wenzelm@11633
   857
"(permissive)" option to recover old behavior;
wenzelm@11633
   858
wenzelm@11933
   859
* HOL: 'inductive' no longer features separate (collective) attributes
wenzelm@11933
   860
for 'intros' (was found too confusing);
wenzelm@11933
   861
wenzelm@12405
   862
* HOL: properly declared induction rules less_induct and
wenzelm@12405
   863
wf_induct_rule;
wenzelm@12405
   864
kleing@11788

wenzelm@11474
   866
*** HOL ***
wenzelm@11474
   867
wenzelm@11702
   868
* HOL: moved over to sane numeral syntax; the new policy is as
wenzelm@11702
   869
follows:
wenzelm@11702
   870
wenzelm@11702
   871
  - 0 and 1 are polymorphic constants, which are defined on any
wenzelm@11702
   872
  numeric type (nat, int, real etc.);
wenzelm@11702
   873
wenzelm@11702
   874
  - 2, 3, 4, ... and -1, -2, -3, ... are polymorphic numerals, based
wenzelm@11702
   875
  binary representation internally;
wenzelm@11702
   876
wenzelm@11702
   877
  - type nat has special constructor Suc, and generally prefers Suc 0
wenzelm@11702
   878
  over 1::nat and Suc (Suc 0) over 2::nat;
wenzelm@11702
   879
wenzelm@12364
   880
This change may cause significant problems of INCOMPATIBILITY; here
wenzelm@12364
   881
are some hints on converting existing sources:
wenzelm@11702
   882
wenzelm@11702
   883
  - due to the new "num" token, "-0" and "-1" etc. are now atomic
wenzelm@11702
   884
  entities, so expressions involving "-" (unary or binary minus) need
wenzelm@11702
   885
  to be spaced properly;
wenzelm@11702
   886
wenzelm@11702
   887
  - existing occurrences of "1" may need to be constraint "1::nat" or
wenzelm@11702
   888
  even replaced by Suc 0; similar for old "2";
wenzelm@11702
   889
wenzelm@11702
   890
  - replace "#nnn" by "nnn", and "#-nnn" by "-nnn";
wenzelm@11702
   891
wenzelm@11702
   892
  - remove all special provisions on numerals in proofs;
wenzelm@11702
   893
wenzelm@13042
   894
* HOL: simp rules nat_number expand numerals on nat to Suc/0
wenzelm@12837
   895
representation (depends on bin_arith_simps in the default context);
wenzelm@12837
   896
wenzelm@12736
   897
* HOL: symbolic syntax for x^2 (numeral 2);
wenzelm@12736
   898
wenzelm@12335
   899
* HOL: the class of all HOL types is now called "type" rather than
wenzelm@12335
   900
"term"; INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt references to this type class
wenzelm@12335
   901
in axclass/classes, instance/arities, and (usually rare) occurrences
wenzelm@12335
   902
in typings (of consts etc.); internally the class is called
wenzelm@12335
   903
"HOL.type", ML programs should refer to HOLogic.typeS;
wenzelm@12335
   904
wenzelm@12280
   905
* HOL/record package improvements:
wenzelm@12280
   906
  - new derived operations "fields" to build a partial record section,
wenzelm@12280
   907
    "extend" to promote a fixed record to a record scheme, and
wenzelm@12280
   908
    "truncate" for the reverse; cf. theorems "xxx.defs", which are *not*
wenzelm@12280
   909
    declared as simp by default;
wenzelm@12587
   910
  - shared operations ("more", "fields", etc.) now need to be always
wenzelm@12587
   911
    qualified) --- potential INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12280
   912
  - removed "make_scheme" operations (use "make" with "extend") --
wenzelm@12280
   913
    INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@11937
   914
  - removed "more" class (simply use "term") -- INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12253
   915
  - provides cases/induct rules for use with corresponding Isar
wenzelm@12253
   916
    methods (for concrete records, record schemes, concrete more
wenzelm@12280
   917
    parts, and schematic more parts -- in that order);
wenzelm@11930
   918
  - internal definitions directly based on a light-weight abstract
wenzelm@11930
   919
    theory of product types over typedef rather than datatype;
wenzelm@11930
   920
berghofe@13023
   921
* HOL: generic code generator for generating executable ML code from
berghofe@13023
   922
specifications; specific support for HOL constructs such as inductive
berghofe@13023
   923
datatypes and sets, as well as recursive functions; can be invoked
berghofe@13023
   924
via 'generate_code' theory section;
berghofe@13023
   925
wenzelm@11933
   926
* HOL: canonical cases/induct rules for n-tuples (n = 3..7);
wenzelm@11933
   927
paulson@13824
   928
* HOL: consolidated and renamed several theories.  In particular:
wenzelm@14731
   929
        Ord.thy has been absorbed into HOL.thy
wenzelm@14731
   930
        String.thy has been absorbed into List.thy
wenzelm@14731
   931
wenzelm@11802
   932
* HOL: concrete setsum syntax "\<Sum>i:A. b" == "setsum (%i. b) A"
wenzelm@11802
   933
(beware of argument permutation!);
wenzelm@11802
   934
wenzelm@11657
   935
* HOL: linorder_less_split superseded by linorder_cases;
wenzelm@11657
   936
wenzelm@12917
   937
* HOL/List: "nodups" renamed to "distinct";
nipkow@12889
   938
wenzelm@11633
   939
* HOL: added "The" definite description operator; move Hilbert's "Eps"
paulson@13824
   940
to peripheral theory "Hilbert_Choice"; some INCOMPATIBILITIES:
paulson@13824
   941
  - Ex_def has changed, now need to use some_eq_ex
wenzelm@11437
   942
wenzelm@11572
   943
* HOL: made split_all_tac safe; EXISTING PROOFS MAY FAIL OR LOOP, so
wenzelm@11572
   944
in this (rare) case use:
wenzelm@11572
   945
wenzelm@11572
   946
  delSWrapper "split_all_tac"
wenzelm@11572
   947
  addSbefore ("unsafe_split_all_tac", unsafe_split_all_tac)
wenzelm@11572
   948
wenzelm@11572
   949
* HOL: added safe wrapper "split_conv_tac" to claset; EXISTING PROOFS
wenzelm@11474
   950
MAY FAIL;
nipkow@11361
   951
wenzelm@11572
   952
* HOL: introduced f^n = f o ... o f; warning: due to the limits of
wenzelm@11572
   953
Isabelle's type classes, ^ on functions and relations has too general
wenzelm@11572
   954
a domain, namely ('a * 'b) set and 'a => 'b; this means that it may be
wenzelm@11572
   955
necessary to attach explicit type constraints;
nipkow@11307
   956
wenzelm@12917
   957
* HOL/Relation: the prefix name of the infix "O" has been changed from
wenzelm@12917
   958
"comp" to "rel_comp"; INCOMPATIBILITY: a few theorems have been
wenzelm@12917
   959
renamed accordingly (eg "compI" -> "rel_compI").
nipkow@12489
   960
wenzelm@11487
   961
* HOL: syntax translations now work properly with numerals and records
wenzelm@11487
   962
expressions;
wenzelm@11474
   963
wenzelm@12457
   964
* HOL: bounded abstraction now uses syntax "%" / "\<lambda>" instead
wenzelm@12457
   965
of "lam" -- INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@11474
   966
wenzelm@11933
   967
* HOL: got rid of some global declarations (potential INCOMPATIBILITY
wenzelm@11933
   968
for ML tools): const "()" renamed "Product_Type.Unity", type "unit"
wenzelm@11933
   969
renamed "Product_Type.unit";
wenzelm@11611
   970
nipkow@12564
   971
* HOL: renamed rtrancl_into_rtrancl2 to converse_rtrancl_into_rtrancl
nipkow@12564
   972
wenzelm@12924
   973
* HOL: removed obsolete theorem "optionE" (use "option.exhaust", or
wenzelm@12924
   974
the "cases" method);
wenzelm@12924
   975
wenzelm@12597
   976
* HOL/GroupTheory: group theory examples including Sylow's theorem (by
webertj@15154
   977
Florian Kammller);
wenzelm@12597
   978
wenzelm@12608
   979
* HOL/IMP: updated and converted to new-style theory format; several
wenzelm@12608
   980
parts turned into readable document, with proper Isar proof texts and
wenzelm@12608
   981
some explanations (by Gerwin Klein);
wenzelm@12597
   982
wenzelm@12734
   983
* HOL-Real: added Complex_Numbers (by Gertrud Bauer);
wenzelm@12734
   984
wenzelm@12690
   985
* HOL-Hyperreal is now a logic image;

*** HOLCF ***
wenzelm@12022
   989
wenzelm@12622
   990
* Isar: consts/constdefs supports mixfix syntax for continuous
wenzelm@12622
   991
operations;
wenzelm@12622
   992
wenzelm@12622
   993
* Isar: domain package adapted to new-style theory format, e.g. see
wenzelm@12622
   994
HOLCF/ex/Dnat.thy;
wenzelm@12622
   995
wenzelm@12622
   996
* theory Lift: proper use of rep_datatype lift instead of ML hacks --
wenzelm@12280
   997
potential INCOMPATIBILITY; now use plain induct_tac instead of former
wenzelm@12280
   998
lift.induct_tac, always use UU instead of Undef;
wenzelm@12022
   999
wenzelm@12597

*** ZF ***
wenzelm@11474
  1004
wenzelm@12622
  1005
* Isar: proper integration of logic-specific tools and packages,
wenzelm@12622
  1006
including theory commands '(co)inductive', '(co)datatype',
wenzelm@12622
  1007
'rep_datatype', 'inductive_cases', as well as methods 'ind_cases',
wenzelm@12622
  1008
'induct_tac', 'case_tac', and 'typecheck' (with attribute 'TC');
wenzelm@12622
  1009
wenzelm@12622
  1010
* theory Main no longer includes AC; for the Axiom of Choice, base
wenzelm@12622

wenzelm@12622
  1013
* the integer library now covers quotients and remainders, with many
wenzelm@12622
  1014
laws relating division to addition, multiplication, etc.;
paulson@12563
  1015
wenzelm@12280
  1016
* ZF/UNITY: Chandy and Misra's UNITY is now available in ZF, giving a
wenzelm@12280
  1017
typeless version of the formalism;
wenzelm@12280
  1018
wenzelm@13025
  1019
* ZF/AC, Coind, IMP, Resid: updated and converted to new-style theory
wenzelm@13025
  1020

wenzelm@12608
  1021
wenzelm@12280
  1022
* ZF/Induct: new directory for examples of inductive definitions,
wenzelm@12608
  1023
including theory Multiset for multiset orderings; converted to

  1024
new-style theory format;
wenzelm@12177

* Pure/kernel: meta-level proof terms (by Stefan Berghofer); reference
wenzelm@12280
  1032
variable proof controls level of detail: 0 = no proofs (only oracle
wenzelm@12280
  1033

wenzelm@12280
  1034
also ref manual for further ML interfaces;
wenzelm@12280

  1037
goal_subclass/goal_arity;
wenzelm@12280
  1038
wenzelm@12280
  1039
* Pure/syntax: new token syntax "num" for plain numerals (without "#"
wenzelm@12280
  1040
of "xnum"); potential INCOMPATIBILITY, since -0, -1 etc. are now
wenzelm@12280
  1041
separate tokens, so expressions involving minus need to be spaced
wenzelm@12280
  1042
properly;
wenzelm@12280
  1043
wenzelm@12312
  1044
* Pure/syntax: support non-oriented infixes, using keyword "infix"
wenzelm@12312
  1045
rather than "infixl" or "infixr";
wenzelm@12312
  1046
wenzelm@12312
  1047
* Pure/syntax: concrete syntax for dummy type variables admits genuine
wenzelm@12312
  1048
sort constraint specifications in type inference; e.g. "x::_::foo"
wenzelm@12312
  1049
ensures that the type of "x" is of sort "foo" (but not necessarily a
wenzelm@12312
  1050
type variable);
wenzelm@12280
  1051
wenzelm@12280
  1052
* Pure/syntax: print modes "type_brackets" and "no_type_brackets"
wenzelm@12280
  1053
control output of nested => (types); the default behavior is
wenzelm@12280
  1054
"type_brackets";
wenzelm@12280
  1055
wenzelm@12280
  1056
* Pure/syntax: builtin parse translation for "_constify" turns valued
wenzelm@11817
  1057
tokens into AST constants;
wenzelm@11474
  1058
wenzelm@12280
  1059
* Pure/syntax: prefer later declarations of translations and print
wenzelm@12280
  1060

  1061
multiple declarations for same syntax element constant;

* system: support Poly/ML 4.1.1 (able to manage larger heaps);
wenzelm@11551
  1080
wenzelm@12753
  1081
* system: reduced base memory usage by Poly/ML (approx. 20 MB instead
wenzelm@12753
  1082
of 40 MB), cf. ML_OPTIONS;
wenzelm@12753
  1083
wenzelm@11633
  1084
* system: Proof General keywords specification is now part of the
wenzelm@11633
  1085
Isabelle distribution (see etc/isar-keywords.el);
wenzelm@11633
  1086
wenzelm@12728
  1087
* system: support for persistent Proof General sessions (refrain from
wenzelm@12728
  1088
outdating all loaded theories on startup); user may create writable
wenzelm@12728
  1089
logic images like this: ``isabelle -q HOL Test'';
wenzelm@12597
  1090
wenzelm@11551
  1091
* system: smart selection of Isabelle process versus Isabelle
wenzelm@11572
  1092
interface, accommodates case-insensitive file systems (e.g. HFS+); may
wenzelm@11572
  1093
run both "isabelle" and "Isabelle" even if file names are badly
wenzelm@11572
  1094
damaged (executable inspects the case of the first letter of its own
wenzelm@11572
  1095
name); added separate "isabelle-process" and "isabelle-interface";
wenzelm@11551
  1096
wenzelm@12472
  1097
* system: refrain from any attempt at filtering input streams; no
wenzelm@12472
  1098
longer support ``8bit'' encoding of old isabelle font, instead proper
wenzelm@12472
  1099
iso-latin characters may now be used; the related isatools
wenzelm@12472
  1100
"symbolinput" and "nonascii" have disappeared as well;
wenzelm@12472
  1101
wenzelm@12472
  1102
* system: removed old "xterm" interface (the print modes "xterm" and
wenzelm@12472
  1103
"xterm_color" are still available for direct use in a suitable
wenzelm@12472
  1104

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES ***
nipkow@10224
  1112
paulson@11241
  1113
* HOL: please note that theories in the Library and elsewhere often use the
paulson@11241
  1114
new-style (Isar) format; to refer to their theorems in an ML script you must
wenzelm@12622
  1115
bind them to ML identifers by e.g.      val thm_name = thm "thm_name";
paulson@11241
  1116
wenzelm@11043
  1117
* HOL: inductive package no longer splits induction rule aggressively,
wenzelm@11043
  1118
but only as far as specified by the introductions given; the old
oheimb@11130
  1119
format may be recovered via ML function complete_split_rule or attribute
wenzelm@11043
  1120
'split_rule (complete)';
wenzelm@11043
  1121
wenzelm@10998
  1122
* HOL: induct renamed to lfp_induct, lfp_Tarski to lfp_unfold,
wenzelm@10998
  1123
gfp_Tarski to gfp_unfold;
nipkow@10224
  1124
paulson@10288
  1125
* HOL: contrapos, contrapos2 renamed to contrapos_nn, contrapos_pp;
paulson@10288
  1126
wenzelm@10858
  1127
* HOL: infix "dvd" now has priority 50 rather than 70 (because it is a
wenzelm@10858
  1128
relation); infix "^^" has been renamed "``"; infix "``" has been
wenzelm@10858
  1129
renamed "`"; "univalent" has been renamed "single_valued";
nipkow@10793
  1130
wenzelm@10998
  1131
* HOL/Real: "rinv" and "hrinv" replaced by overloaded "inverse"
wenzelm@10998
  1132
operation;
wenzelm@10998
  1133
nipkow@10868
  1134
* HOLCF: infix "`" has been renamed "$"; the symbol syntax is \<cdot>;
nipkow@10856
  1135
wenzelm@10391
  1136
* Isar: 'obtain' no longer declares "that" fact as simp/intro;
wenzelm@10391
  1137
wenzelm@10401
  1138
* Isar/HOL: method 'induct' now handles non-atomic goals; as a
wenzelm@10401
  1139
consequence, it is no longer monotonic wrt. the local goal context
wenzelm@10401
  1140
(which is now passed through the inductive cases);
wenzelm@10401
  1141
wenzelm@10976
  1142
* Document preparation: renamed standard symbols \<ll> to \<lless> and
wenzelm@10976
  1143
\<gg> to \<ggreater>;
wenzelm@10976
  1144

wenzelm@10858
  1148
* \isabellestyle{NAME} selects version of Isabelle output (currently
wenzelm@10858
  1149
available: are "it" for near math-mode best-style output, "sl" for
wenzelm@10858
  1150
slanted text style, and "tt" for plain type-writer; if no
wenzelm@10858
  1151
\isabellestyle command is given, output is according to slanted
wenzelm@10858
  1152
type-writer);
wenzelm@10858
  1153
wenzelm@10322
  1154
* support sub/super scripts (for single symbols only), input syntax is
wenzelm@10322
  1155
like this: "A\<^sup>*" or "A\<^sup>\<star>";
wenzelm@10322
  1156
wenzelm@10858
  1157
* some more standard symbols; see Appendix A of the system manual for
wenzelm@11062
  1158
the complete list of symbols defined in isabellesym.sty;
wenzelm@10858
  1159
wenzelm@10998
  1160
* improved isabelle style files; more abstract symbol implementation
wenzelm@10998
  1161
(should now use \isamath{...} and \isatext{...} in custom symbol
wenzelm@10998
  1162
definitions);
wenzelm@10998
  1163
wenzelm@10634
  1164
* antiquotation @{goals} and @{subgoals} for output of *dynamic* goals
wenzelm@10634
  1165
state; Note that presentation of goal states does not conform to
wenzelm@10634
  1166
actual human-readable proof documents.  Please do not include goal
wenzelm@10634
  1167
states into document output unless you really know what you are doing!
wenzelm@10322
  1168
wenzelm@11062
  1169
* proper indentation of antiquoted output with proportional LaTeX
wenzelm@11062
  1170
fonts;
wenzelm@10862
  1171
wenzelm@11050
  1172
* no_document ML operator temporarily disables LaTeX document
wenzelm@11050
  1173
generation;
wenzelm@11050
  1174
wenzelm@11062
  1175

  1177
wenzelm@10306
  1178
*** Isar ***
wenzelm@10306
  1179
wenzelm@10547
  1180
* Pure: Isar now suffers initial goal statements to contain unbound
wenzelm@10547
  1181
schematic variables (this does not conform to actual readable proof
wenzelm@10547
  1182
documents, due to unpredictable outcome and non-compositional proof
wenzelm@10547
  1183
checking); users who know what they are doing may use schematic goals
wenzelm@10547
  1184
for Prolog-style synthesis of proven results;
wenzelm@10547
  1185
wenzelm@10391
  1186
* Pure: assumption method (an implicit finishing) now handles actual
wenzelm@10391
  1187
rules as well;
wenzelm@10391
  1188
wenzelm@10391
  1189
* Pure: improved 'obtain' --- moved to Pure, insert "that" into
wenzelm@10391
  1190
initial goal, declare "that" only as Pure intro (only for single
wenzelm@10391
  1191
steps); the "that" rule assumption may now be involved in implicit
wenzelm@10391
  1192
finishing, thus ".." becomes a feasible for trivial obtains;
wenzelm@10391
  1193
wenzelm@10391
  1194
* Pure: default proof step now includes 'intro_classes'; thus trivial
wenzelm@10391
  1195
instance proofs may be performed by "..";
wenzelm@10391
  1196
wenzelm@10391
  1197
* Pure: ?thesis / ?this / "..." now work for pure meta-level
wenzelm@10391
  1198
statements as well;
wenzelm@10306
  1199
wenzelm@11097
  1200
* Pure: more robust selection of calculational rules;
wenzelm@11097
  1201
wenzelm@10858
  1202
* Pure: the builtin notion of 'finished' goal now includes the ==-refl
wenzelm@10858
  1203
rule (as well as the assumption rule);
wenzelm@10858
  1204
wenzelm@10858
  1205
* Pure: 'thm_deps' command visualizes dependencies of theorems and
wenzelm@10858
  1206
lemmas, using the graph browser tool;
wenzelm@10858
  1207
wenzelm@10944
  1208
* Pure: predict failure of "show" in interactive mode;
wenzelm@10944
  1209
wenzelm@11016
  1210
* Pure: 'thms_containing' now takes actual terms as arguments;
wenzelm@11016
  1211
wenzelm@10401
  1212
* HOL: improved method 'induct' --- now handles non-atomic goals
wenzelm@10401
  1213
(potential INCOMPATIBILITY); tuned error handling;
wenzelm@10401
  1214
wenzelm@10557
  1215
* HOL: cases and induct rules now provide explicit hints about the
wenzelm@10547
  1216
number of facts to be consumed (0 for "type" and 1 for "set" rules);
wenzelm@10547
  1217
any remaining facts are inserted into the goal verbatim;
wenzelm@10547
  1218
wenzelm@10858
  1219
* HOL: local contexts (aka cases) may now contain term bindings as
wenzelm@10858
  1220
well; the 'cases' and 'induct' methods new provide a ?case binding for
wenzelm@10858
  1221
the result to be shown in each case;
wenzelm@10858
  1222
wenzelm@10770
  1223
* HOL: added 'recdef_tc' command;
wenzelm@10770
  1224
wenzelm@11016
  1225
* isatool convert assists in eliminating legacy ML scripts;
wenzelm@11016
  1226
wenzelm@10306
  1227
wenzelm@10245
  1228
*** HOL ***
wenzelm@10245
  1229
wenzelm@10245
  1230
* HOL/Library: a collection of generic theories to be used together
wenzelm@10245
  1231
with main HOL; the theory loader path already includes this directory
wenzelm@10245
  1232
by default; the following existing theories have been moved here:
wenzelm@10245
  1233
HOL/Induct/Multiset, HOL/Induct/Acc (as Accessible_Part), HOL/While
wenzelm@10337
  1234
(as While_Combinator), HOL/Lex/Prefix (as List_Prefix);
wenzelm@10245
  1235
wenzelm@10966
  1236
* HOL/Unix: "Some aspects of Unix file-system security", a typical
wenzelm@10966
  1237
modelling and verification task performed in Isabelle/HOL +
wenzelm@10966
  1238
Isabelle/Isar + Isabelle document preparation (by Markus Wenzel).
wenzelm@10966
  1239
wenzelm@11094
  1240
* HOL/Algebra: special summation operator SUM no longer exists, it has
wenzelm@11094
  1241
been replaced by setsum; infix 'assoc' now has priority 50 (like
wenzelm@11094
  1242
'dvd'); axiom 'one_not_zero' has been moved from axclass 'ring' to
wenzelm@11094
  1243
'domain', this makes the theory consistent with mathematical
wenzelm@11094
  1244
literature;
wenzelm@11094
  1245
wenzelm@10514
  1246
* HOL basics: added overloaded operations "inverse" and "divide"
wenzelm@10726
  1247
(infix "/"), syntax for generic "abs" operation, generic summation
wenzelm@11094
  1248
operator \<Sum>;
wenzelm@10452
  1249
wenzelm@10391
  1250
* HOL/typedef: simplified package, provide more useful rules (see also
wenzelm@10391
  1251
HOL/subset.thy);
wenzelm@10391
  1252
wenzelm@10915
  1253
* HOL/datatype: induction rule for arbitrarily branching datatypes is
wenzelm@10915
  1254
now expressed as a proper nested rule (old-style tactic scripts may
wenzelm@10915
  1255
require atomize_strip_tac to cope with non-atomic premises);
wenzelm@10915
  1256
wenzelm@10915
  1257
* HOL: renamed theory "Prod" to "Product_Type", renamed "split" rule
wenzelm@10915
  1258
to "split_conv" (old name still available for compatibility);
wenzelm@10915
  1259
wenzelm@10915
  1260
* HOL: improved concrete syntax for strings (e.g. allows translation
wenzelm@10915
  1261
rules with string literals);
wenzelm@10915
  1262
paulson@12245
  1263
* HOL-Real-Hyperreal: this extends HOL-Real with the hyperreals
paulson@12245
  1264
 and Fleuriot's mechanization of analysis, including the transcendental
paulson@12245
  1265
 functions for the reals;
paulson@10756
  1266
wenzelm@11094
  1267
* HOL/Real, HOL/Hyperreal: improved arithmetic simplification;
wenzelm@10391
  1268
wenzelm@10858
  1269
paulson@10474
  1270
*** CTT ***
paulson@10474
  1271
wenzelm@10547
  1272
* CTT: x-symbol support for Pi, Sigma, -->, : (membership); note that
wenzelm@10547
  1273
"lam" is displayed as TWO lambda-symbols
paulson@10474
  1274
wenzelm@10547
  1275
* CTT: theory Main now available, containing everything (that is, Bool
wenzelm@10547
  1276
and Arith);
wenzelm@10547
  1277
paulson@10474

wenzelm@10391
  1279
*** General ***
wenzelm@10391
  1280
wenzelm@10547
  1281
* Pure: the Simplifier has been implemented properly as a derived rule
wenzelm@10547
  1282
outside of the actual kernel (at last!); the overall performance
wenzelm@10547
  1283
penalty in practical applications is about 50%, while reliability of
wenzelm@10547
  1284
the Isabelle inference kernel has been greatly improved;
wenzelm@10547
  1285
wenzelm@11112
  1286
* print modes "brackets" and "no_brackets" control output of nested =>
wenzelm@11112
  1287
(types) and ==> (props); the default behaviour is "brackets";
wenzelm@11112
  1288
wenzelm@10391
  1289
* Provers: fast_tac (and friends) now handle actual object-logic rules
wenzelm@10391
  1290
as assumptions as well;
wenzelm@10391
  1291
wenzelm@11124
  1292
* system: support Poly/ML 4.0;
wenzelm@11124
  1293
wenzelm@11124
  1294
* system: isatool install handles KDE version 1 or 2;
wenzelm@11124

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES ***
paulson@8014
  1302
wenzelm@8848
  1303
* HOL: simplification of natural numbers is much changed; to partly
wenzelm@8848
  1304
recover the old behaviour (e.g. to prevent n+n rewriting to #2*n)
wenzelm@8848
  1305
issue the following ML commands:
wenzelm@8848
  1306
wenzelm@8848
  1307
  Delsimprocs Nat_Numeral_Simprocs.cancel_numerals;
wenzelm@8848
  1308
  Delsimprocs [Nat_Numeral_Simprocs.combine_numerals];
paulson@8788
  1309
wenzelm@10129
  1310
* HOL: simplification no longer dives into case-expressions; this is
wenzelm@10129
  1311
controlled by "t.weak_case_cong" for each datatype t;
wenzelm@10003
  1312
wenzelm@10003
  1313
* HOL: nat_less_induct renamed to less_induct;
wenzelm@10003
  1314
wenzelm@10003
  1315
* HOL: systematic renaming of the SOME (Eps) rules, may use isatool
wenzelm@10003
  1316
fixsome to patch .thy and .ML sources automatically;
paulson@8967
  1317
wenzelm@10003
  1318
  select_equality  -> some_equality
wenzelm@10003
  1319

  selectI2EX       -> someI2_ex
wenzelm@10003
  1321
  selectI2         -> someI2
wenzelm@10003
  1322
  selectI          -> someI
wenzelm@10003
  1323
  select1_equality -> some1_equality
wenzelm@10003
  1324
  Eps_sym_eq       -> some_sym_eq_trivial
wenzelm@10003
  1325
  Eps_eq           -> some_eq_trivial
wenzelm@10003
  1326
wenzelm@10003
  1327
* HOL: exhaust_tac on datatypes superceded by new generic case_tac;
wenzelm@10003
  1328
wenzelm@10003
  1329
* HOL: removed obsolete theorem binding expand_if (refer to split_if
wenzelm@10003
  1330
instead);
wenzelm@10003
  1331
wenzelm@10003
  1332
* HOL: the recursion equations generated by 'recdef' are now called
wenzelm@10003
  1333
f.simps instead of f.rules;
wenzelm@10003
  1334
wenzelm@10003
  1335
* HOL: qed_spec_mp now also handles bounded ALL as well;
wenzelm@10003
  1336
wenzelm@10003
  1337
* HOL: 0 is now overloaded, so the type constraint ":: nat" may
wenzelm@10003
  1338
sometimes be needed;
wenzelm@10003
  1339
wenzelm@10003
  1340
* HOL: the constant for "f``x" is now "image" rather than "op ``";
paulson@8014
  1341
paulson@10065
  1342
* HOL: the constant for "f-``x" is now "vimage" rather than "op -``";
paulson@10065
  1343
wenzelm@9330
  1344
* HOL: the disjoint sum is now "<+>" instead of "Plus"; the cartesian
wenzelm@9330
  1345
product is now "<*>" instead of "Times"; the lexicographic product is
wenzelm@9330
  1346
now "<*lex*>" instead of "**";
nipkow@8705
  1347
wenzelm@10003
  1348
* HOL: theory Sexp is now in HOL/Induct examples (it used to be part
wenzelm@10003
  1349
of main HOL, but was unused); better use HOL's datatype package;
paulson@9971
  1350
wenzelm@10137
  1351
* HOL: removed "symbols" syntax for constant "override" of theory Map;
wenzelm@10137
  1352
the old syntax may be recovered as follows:
wenzelm@10137
  1353
wenzelm@10137
  1354
  syntax (symbols)
wenzelm@10137
  1355
    override  :: "('a ~=> 'b) => ('a ~=> 'b) => ('a ~=> 'b)"

wenzelm@8848
  1358
* HOL/Real: "rabs" replaced by overloaded "abs" function;
wenzelm@8848
  1359
wenzelm@8887
  1360
* HOL/ML: even fewer consts are declared as global (see theories Ord,
wenzelm@8887
  1361
Lfp, Gfp, WF); this only affects ML packages that refer to const names
wenzelm@8887
  1362
internally;
wenzelm@8887
  1363
wenzelm@10003
  1364
* HOL and ZF: syntax for quotienting wrt an equivalence relation
wenzelm@10003
  1365
changed from A/r to A//r;
wenzelm@9908
  1366
wenzelm@10003
  1367
* ZF: new treatment of arithmetic (nat & int) may break some old
wenzelm@10003
  1368
proofs;
wenzelm@8921
  1369
wenzelm@10003
  1370
* Isar: renamed some attributes (RS -> THEN, simplify -> simplified,
wenzelm@10003
  1371
rulify -> rule_format, elimify -> elim_format, ...);
paulson@9542
  1372
wenzelm@9941
  1373
* Isar/Provers: intro/elim/dest attributes changed; renamed
wenzelm@9941
  1374
intro/intro!/intro!! flags to intro!/intro/intro? (in most cases, one
wenzelm@9937
  1375
should have to change intro!! to intro? only); replaced "delrule" by
wenzelm@9937
  1376
"rule del";
wenzelm@9437
  1377
wenzelm@9612
  1378
* Isar/HOL: renamed "intrs" to "intros" in inductive definitions;
wenzelm@9612
  1379
wenzelm@9437
  1380
* Provers: strengthened force_tac by using new first_best_tac;
oheimb@9402
  1381
wenzelm@10003
  1382
* LaTeX document preparation: several changes of isabelle.sty (see
wenzelm@10003

  1386
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@8358
  1387
wenzelm@9198
  1388
* formal comments (text blocks etc.) in new-style theories may now
wenzelm@9753
  1389
contain antiquotations of thm/prop/term/typ/text to be presented
wenzelm@9753
  1390
according to latex print mode; concrete syntax is like this:
wenzelm@9753
  1391
@{term[show_types] "f(x) = a + x"};
wenzelm@9198
  1392
wenzelm@8358
  1393
* isatool mkdir provides easy setup of Isabelle session directories,
wenzelm@8518
  1394
including proper document sources;
wenzelm@8358
  1395
wenzelm@8358
  1396
* generated LaTeX sources are now deleted after successful run
wenzelm@8358
  1397
(isatool document -c); may retain a copy somewhere else via -D option
wenzelm@8358
  1398
of isatool usedir;
wenzelm@8358
  1399
wenzelm@8566
  1400
* isatool usedir -D now lets isatool latex -o sty update the Isabelle
wenzelm@10003
  1401
style files, achieving self-contained LaTeX sources and simplifying
wenzelm@10003
  1402
LaTeX debugging;
wenzelm@8566
  1403
wenzelm@8518
  1404
* old-style theories now produce (crude) LaTeX output as well;
wenzelm@8358
  1405
wenzelm@9057
  1406
* browser info session directories are now self-contained (may be put
wenzelm@9437
  1407
on WWW server seperately); improved graphs of nested sessions; removed
wenzelm@9437
  1408
graph for 'all sessions';
wenzelm@9057
  1409
wenzelm@10003
  1410
* several improvements in isabelle style files; \isabellestyle{it}
wenzelm@10003
  1411
produces fake math mode output; \isamarkupheader is now \section by
wenzelm@10003
  1412
default; see lib/texinputs/isabelle.sty etc.;

*** Isar ***
wenzelm@8184
  1416
wenzelm@10003
  1417
* Isar/Pure: local results and corresponding term bindings are now
wenzelm@10003
  1418
subject to Hindley-Milner polymorphism (similar to ML); this
wenzelm@10003
  1419
accommodates incremental type-inference very nicely;
wenzelm@8283
  1420
wenzelm@10003
  1421
* Isar/Pure: new derived language element 'obtain' supports
wenzelm@10003
  1422
generalized existence reasoning;
wenzelm@8621
  1423
wenzelm@10003
  1424
* Isar/Pure: new calculational elements 'moreover' and 'ultimately'
wenzelm@10003
  1425
support accumulation of results, without applying any rules yet;
wenzelm@10003
  1426
useful to collect intermediate results without explicit name
wenzelm@10003
  1427
references, and for use with transitivity rules with more than 2
wenzelm@10003
  1428
premises;
wenzelm@8184
  1429
wenzelm@10003
  1430
* Isar/Pure: scalable support for case-analysis type proofs: new
wenzelm@10003
  1431
'case' language element refers to local contexts symbolically, as
wenzelm@10003
  1432
produced by certain proof methods; internally, case names are attached
wenzelm@10003
  1433
to theorems as "tags";
wenzelm@8440
  1434
wenzelm@10003
  1435
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'hide' removes declarations from
wenzelm@9330
  1436
class/type/const name spaces;
wenzelm@9330
  1437
wenzelm@10003
  1438
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'defs' supports option "(overloaded)" to
wenzelm@9330
  1439
indicate potential overloading;
wenzelm@9330
  1440
wenzelm@10003
  1441
* Isar/Pure: changed syntax of local blocks from {{ }} to { };
wenzelm@8621
  1442
wenzelm@10003
  1443
* Isar/Pure: syntax of sorts made 'inner', i.e. have to write
wenzelm@10003
  1444
"{a,b,c}" instead of {a,b,c};
wenzelm@9011
  1445
wenzelm@10003
  1446
* Isar/Pure now provides its own version of intro/elim/dest
wenzelm@10003
  1447
attributes; useful for building new logics, but beware of confusion
wenzelm@10003
  1448
with the version in Provers/classical;
wenzelm@9612
  1449
wenzelm@10003
  1450
* Isar/Pure: the local context of (non-atomic) goals is provided via
wenzelm@10003
  1451
case name 'antecedent';
wenzelm@8440
  1452
wenzelm@10003
  1453
* Isar/Pure: removed obsolete 'transfer' attribute (transfer of thms
wenzelm@10003
  1454
to the current context is now done automatically);
wenzelm@9383
  1455
wenzelm@10003
  1456
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'method_setup' provides a simple interface
wenzelm@10003
  1457
for definining proof methods in ML;
wenzelm@9612
  1458
wenzelm@10003
  1459
* Isar/Provers: intro/elim/dest attributes changed; renamed
wenzelm@9941
  1460
intro/intro!/intro!! flags to intro!/intro/intro? (INCOMPATIBILITY, in
wenzelm@9941
  1461
most cases, one should have to change intro!! to intro? only);
wenzelm@9941
  1462
replaced "delrule" by "rule del";
wenzelm@8283
  1463
wenzelm@10003
  1464
* Isar/Provers: new 'hypsubst' method, plain 'subst' method and
wenzelm@10003
  1465
'symmetric' attribute (the latter supercedes [RS sym]);
wenzelm@10003
  1466
wenzelm@10003
  1467
* Isar/Provers: splitter support (via 'split' attribute and 'simp'
wenzelm@10003
  1468
method modifier); 'simp' method: 'only:' modifier removes loopers as
wenzelm@10003
  1469
well (including splits);
wenzelm@10003
  1470
wenzelm@10003
  1471
* Isar/Provers: Simplifier and Classical methods now support all kind
wenzelm@10003
  1472
of modifiers used in the past, including 'cong', 'iff', etc.
wenzelm@10003
  1473
wenzelm@10003
  1474
* Isar/Provers: added 'fastsimp' and 'clarsimp' methods (combination
wenzelm@10003
  1475
of Simplifier and Classical reasoner);
wenzelm@10003
  1476
wenzelm@10003
  1477
* Isar/HOL: new proof method 'cases' and improved version of 'induct'
wenzelm@10003
  1478
now support named cases; major packages (inductive, datatype, primrec,
wenzelm@10003
  1479
recdef) support case names and properly name parameters;
wenzelm@9612
  1480
wenzelm@10003
  1481
* Isar/HOL: new transitivity rules for substitution in inequalities --
wenzelm@10003
  1482
monotonicity conditions are extracted to be proven at end of
wenzelm@10003
  1483
calculations;
wenzelm@10003
  1484
wenzelm@10003
  1485
* Isar/HOL: removed 'case_split' thm binding, should use 'cases' proof
wenzelm@10003
  1486
method anyway;
wenzelm@10003
  1487
wenzelm@10003
  1488
* Isar/HOL: removed old expand_if = split_if; theorems if_splits =
wenzelm@10003
  1489
split_if split_if_asm; datatype package provides theorems foo.splits =
wenzelm@10003
  1490
foo.split foo.split_asm for each datatype;
wenzelm@10003
  1491
wenzelm@10003
  1492
* Isar/HOL: tuned inductive package, rename "intrs" to "intros"
wenzelm@10003
  1493
(potential INCOMPATIBILITY), emulation of mk_cases feature for proof
wenzelm@10003
  1494
scripts: new 'inductive_cases' command and 'ind_cases' method; (Note:
wenzelm@10003
  1495
use "(cases (simplified))" method in proper proof texts);
wenzelm@10003
  1496
wenzelm@10003
  1497
* Isar/HOL: added global 'arith_split' attribute for 'arith' method;
wenzelm@10003
  1498
wenzelm@10003
  1499
* Isar: names of theorems etc. may be natural numbers as well;
wenzelm@10003
  1500
wenzelm@10003
  1501
* Isar: 'pr' command: optional arguments for goals_limit and
wenzelm@9724
  1502
ProofContext.prems_limit; no longer prints theory contexts, but only
wenzelm@9724
  1503
proof states;
wenzelm@8487
  1504
wenzelm@10003
  1505
* Isar: diagnostic commands 'pr', 'thm', 'prop', 'term', 'typ' admit
wenzelm@8518
  1506
additional print modes to be specified; e.g. "pr(latex)" will print
wenzelm@8518
  1507
proof state according to the Isabelle LaTeX style;
wenzelm@8487
  1508
wenzelm@10003
  1509
* Isar: improved support for emulating tactic scripts, including proof
wenzelm@9612
  1510
methods 'rule_tac' etc., 'cut_tac', 'thin_tac', 'subgoal_tac',
wenzelm@9612
  1511
'rename_tac', 'rotate_tac', 'tactic', and 'case_tac' / 'induct_tac'
wenzelm@9612
  1512
(for HOL datatypes);
wenzelm@8534
  1513
wenzelm@10003
  1514
* Isar: simplified (more robust) goal selection of proof methods: 1st
wenzelm@10003
  1515
goal, all goals, or explicit goal specifier (tactic emulation); thus
wenzelm@10003
  1516
'proof method scripts' have to be in depth-first order;
wenzelm@8673
  1517
wenzelm@10003
  1518
* Isar: tuned 'let' syntax: replaced 'as' keyword by 'and';
wenzelm@8729
  1519
wenzelm@10003
  1520
* Isar: removed 'help' command, which hasn't been too helpful anyway;
wenzelm@10003
  1521
should instead use individual commands for printing items
wenzelm@10003
  1522
(print_commands, print_methods etc.);
wenzelm@9224
  1523
wenzelm@10003
  1524
* Isar: added 'nothing' --- the empty list of theorems;

wenzelm@10164
  1555
wenzelm@10003
  1556
* HOL/Lambda: converted into new-style theory and document;
paulson@9542
  1557
wenzelm@10003
  1558
* HOL/ex/Multiquote: example of multiple nested quotations and
wenzelm@10003
  1559
anti-quotations -- basically a generalized version of de-Bruijn
wenzelm@10003
  1560
representation; very useful in avoiding lifting of operations;
wenzelm@8848
  1561
wenzelm@9612
  1562
* HOL/record: added general record equality rule to simpset; fixed

  1566
* HOL: 0 is now overloaded over the new sort "zero", allowing its use with

  1567
other numeric types and also as the identity of groups, rings, etc.;
paulson@8967
  1568
paulson@8967
  1569
* HOL: new axclass plus_ac0 for addition with the AC-laws and 0 as identity.
paulson@8967
  1570
Types nat and int belong to this axclass;
paulson@8967
  1571
wenzelm@10003
  1572
* HOL: greatly improved simplification involving numerals of type nat, int, real:
paulson@8788
  1573
   (i + #8 + j) = Suc k simplifies to  #7 + (i + j) = k
paulson@8832
  1574
   i*j + k + j*#3*i     simplifies to  #4*(i*j) + k
paulson@8832
  1575
  two terms #m*u and #n*u are replaced by #(m+n)*u
paulson@8832
  1576
    (where #m, #n and u can implicitly be 1; this is simproc combine_numerals)
paulson@8832
  1577
  and the term/formula #m*u+x ~~ #n*u+y simplifies simplifies to #(m-n)+x ~~ y
paulson@8832
  1578
    or x ~~ #(n-m)+y, where ~~ is one of = < <= or - (simproc cancel_numerals);
paulson@8736
  1579
wenzelm@10003
  1580
* HOL: meson_tac is available (previously in ex/meson.ML); it is a
wenzelm@10003
  1581
powerful prover for predicate logic but knows nothing of clasets; see
wenzelm@10003
  1582
ex/mesontest.ML and ex/mesontest2.ML for example applications;
paulson@9835
  1583
wenzelm@8848
  1584
* HOL: new version of "case_tac" subsumes both boolean case split and
wenzelm@8440
  1585
"exhaust_tac" on datatypes; INCOMPATIBILITY: exhaust_tac no longer
wenzelm@8518
  1586
exists, may define val exhaust_tac = case_tac for ad-hoc portability;
wenzelm@8440
  1587
wenzelm@8848
  1588
* HOL: simplification no longer dives into case-expressions: only the
wenzelm@10129
  1589
selector expression is simplified, but not the remaining arms; to
wenzelm@10129
  1590
enable full simplification of case-expressions for datatype t, you may
wenzelm@10129
  1591
remove t.weak_case_cong from the simpset, either globally (Delcongs
wenzelm@10129

[thm"t.weak_case_cong"];) or locally (delcongs [...]).

wenzelm@8848
  1594
* HOL/recdef: the recursion equations generated by 'recdef' for
wenzelm@8848
  1595
function 'f' are now called f.simps instead of f.rules; if all
wenzelm@8848
  1596
termination conditions are proved automatically, these simplification
wenzelm@8848
  1597
rules are added to the simpset, as in primrec; rules may be named
wenzelm@8848
  1598
individually as well, resulting in a separate list of theorems for
wenzelm@8848
  1599
each equation;
wenzelm@8848
  1600
wenzelm@9489
  1601
* HOL/While is a new theory that provides a while-combinator. It
wenzelm@9489
  1602
permits the definition of tail-recursive functions without the
wenzelm@9489
  1603
provision of a termination measure. The latter is necessary once the
wenzelm@9489
  1604
invariant proof rule for while is applied.
nipkow@9457
  1605
wenzelm@10003
  1606
* HOL: new (overloaded) notation for the set of elements below/above
wenzelm@10003

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

  1611
* HOL: new tactic induct_thm_tac: thm -> string -> int -> tactic
nipkow@9746
  1612
induct_tac th "x1 ... xn" expects th to have a conclusion of the form
nipkow@9746
  1613

nipkow@9746

wenzelm@10003
  1615
* HOL/Real: "rabs" replaced by overloaded "abs" function;
nipkow@9737
  1616
wenzelm@10003
  1617
* HOL: theory Sexp now in HOL/Induct examples (it used to be part of
wenzelm@10003
  1618
main HOL, but was unused);
nipkow@8626
  1619
wenzelm@10003
  1620
* HOL: fewer consts declared as global (e.g. have to refer to
wenzelm@10003
  1621
"Lfp.lfp" instead of "lfp" internally; affects ML packages only);
wenzelm@8887
  1622
wenzelm@10003
  1623
* HOL: tuned AST representation of nested pairs, avoiding bogus output
wenzelm@10003
  1624
in case of overlap with user translations (e.g. judgements over
wenzelm@10003
  1625
tuples); (note that the underlying logical represenation is still
wenzelm@10003
  1626
bogus);

  1631
* ZF: simplification automatically cancels common terms in arithmetic
wenzelm@10003
  1632
expressions over nat and int;
paulson@9542
  1633
wenzelm@10003
  1634
* ZF: new treatment of nat to minimize type-checking: all operators
wenzelm@10003
  1635
coerce their operands to a natural number using the function natify,
wenzelm@10003
  1636
making the algebraic laws unconditional;
paulson@9542
  1637
wenzelm@10003
  1638
* ZF: as above, for int: operators coerce their operands to an integer
wenzelm@10003
  1639
using the function intify;
paulson@9542
  1640
wenzelm@10003
  1641
* ZF: the integer library now contains many of the usual laws for the
wenzelm@10003
  1642
orderings, including $<=, and monotonicity laws for $+ and $*;
paulson@9542
  1643
wenzelm@10003
  1644
* ZF: new example ZF/ex/NatSum to demonstrate integer arithmetic
wenzelm@10003
  1645
simplification;
paulson@9388
  1646
wenzelm@10003
  1647
* FOL and ZF: AddIffs now available, giving theorems of the form P<->Q
wenzelm@10003
  1648
to the simplifier and classical reasoner simultaneously;

  1653
* Provers: blast_tac now handles actual object-logic rules as
wenzelm@10003
  1654
assumptions; note that auto_tac uses blast_tac internally as well;
wenzelm@10003
  1655
wenzelm@10003
  1656
* Provers: new functions rulify/rulify_no_asm: thm -> thm for turning
wenzelm@10003
  1657
outer -->/All/Ball into ==>/!!; qed_spec_mp now uses rulify_no_asm;
wenzelm@10003
  1658
wenzelm@9941
  1659
* Provers: delrules now handles destruct rules as well (no longer need
wenzelm@9941
  1660
explicit make_elim);
wenzelm@9941
  1661
wenzelm@10003
  1662
* Provers: Blast_tac now warns of and ignores "weak elimination rules" e.g.
wenzelm@10003
  1663
  [| inj ?f;          ?f ?x = ?f ?y; ?x = ?y ==> ?W |] ==> ?W
wenzelm@10003
  1664
use instead the strong form,
wenzelm@10003
  1665
  [| inj ?f; ~ ?W ==> ?f ?x = ?f ?y; ?x = ?y ==> ?W |] ==> ?W
wenzelm@10003
  1666
in HOL, FOL and ZF the function cla_make_elim will create such rules
wenzelm@10003
  1667
from destruct-rules;
wenzelm@9489
  1668
wenzelm@9709
  1669
* Provers: Simplifier.easy_setup provides a fast path to basic
wenzelm@9709
  1670
Simplifier setup for new object-logics;
wenzelm@9709
  1671
wenzelm@9709
  1672
* Pure: AST translation rules no longer require constant head on LHS;
wenzelm@9349
  1673
wenzelm@9709
  1674
* Pure: improved name spaces: ambiguous output is qualified; support
wenzelm@9709
  1675
for hiding of names;
wenzelm@8729
  1676
wenzelm@10003
  1677
* system: smart setup of canonical ML_HOME, ISABELLE_INTERFACE, and
wenzelm@10003
  1678
XSYMBOL_HOME; no longer need to do manual configuration in most
wenzelm@10003
  1679
situations;
wenzelm@10003
  1680
wenzelm@9709
  1681
* system: compression of ML heaps images may now be controlled via -c
wenzelm@9709
  1682
option of isabelle and isatool usedir (currently only observed by
wenzelm@9709
  1683
Poly/ML);
wenzelm@8358
  1684
wenzelm@9981
  1685
* system: isatool installfonts may handle X-Symbol fonts as well (very
wenzelm@9981
  1686
useful for remote X11);
wenzelm@9981
  1687
wenzelm@9709
  1688
* system: provide TAGS file for Isabelle sources;
wenzelm@9052
  1689
wenzelm@9288
  1690
* ML: infix 'OF' is a version of 'MRS' with more appropriate argument
wenzelm@9288
  1691

wenzelm@9288
  1692
wenzelm@8994
  1693
* ML: renamed flags Syntax.trace_norm_ast to Syntax.trace_ast; global
wenzelm@8994
  1694
timing flag supersedes proof_timing and Toplevel.trace;
wenzelm@8994
  1695
wenzelm@10003
  1696
* ML: new combinators |>> and |>>> for incremental transformations
wenzelm@10003
  1697
with secondary results (e.g. certain theory extensions):
wenzelm@10003
  1698
wenzelm@9330
  1699
* ML: PureThy.add_defs gets additional argument to indicate potential
wenzelm@9330
  1700
overloading (usually false);
wenzelm@9330
  1701
wenzelm@10003
  1702
* ML: PureThy.add_thms/add_axioms/add_defs now return theorems as
wenzelm@10003
  1703
results;

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES (see below for more details) ***
paulson@5931
  1711
paulson@6922
  1712
* HOL: The THEN and ELSE parts of conditional expressions (if P then x else y)
paulson@6922
  1713
are no longer simplified.  (This allows the simplifier to unfold recursive
paulson@6922
  1714
functional programs.)  To restore the old behaviour, declare
wenzelm@7215
  1715
wenzelm@7215
  1716
    Delcongs [if_weak_cong];
paulson@6922
  1717
wenzelm@6269
  1718
* HOL: Removed the obsolete syntax "Compl A"; use -A for set
wenzelm@6269
  1719
complement;
paulson@5931
  1720
wenzelm@6269
  1721
* HOL: the predicate "inj" is now defined by translation to "inj_on";
paulson@6174
  1722
berghofe@7847
  1723
* HOL/datatype: mutual_induct_tac no longer exists --
berghofe@7847
  1724
  use induct_tac "x_1 ... x_n" instead of mutual_induct_tac ["x_1", ..., "x_n"]
berghofe@7847
  1725
wenzelm@6386
  1726
* HOL/typedef: fixed type inference for representing set; type
wenzelm@6386
  1727
arguments now have to occur explicitly on the rhs as type constraints;
wenzelm@6386
  1728
wenzelm@6269
  1729
* ZF: The con_defs part of an inductive definition may no longer refer
wenzelm@6269
  1730
to constants declared in the same theory;
nipkow@6057
  1731
wenzelm@6269
  1732
* HOL, ZF: the function mk_cases, generated by the inductive
wenzelm@6269
  1733
definition package, has lost an argument.  To simplify its result, it
wenzelm@6269
  1734
uses the default simpset instead of a supplied list of theorems.
paulson@6141
  1735
wenzelm@7215
  1736
* HOL/List: the constructors of type list are now Nil and Cons;
wenzelm@7215
  1737
nipkow@7619
  1738
* Simplifier: the type of the infix ML functions
wenzelm@8729
  1739
        setSSolver addSSolver setSolver addSolver
nipkow@7619
  1740
is now  simpset * solver -> simpset  where `solver' is a new abstract type
nipkow@7619
  1741
for packaging solvers. A solver is created via
wenzelm@8729
  1742
        mk_solver: string -> (thm list -> int -> tactic) -> solver
nipkow@7619
  1743
where the string argument is only a comment.

paulson@6069
  1747
wenzelm@6343
  1748
* Provers/Arith/fast_lin_arith.ML contains a functor for creating a
wenzelm@6343
  1749
decision procedure for linear arithmetic. Currently it is used for
wenzelm@7593
  1750
types `nat', `int', and `real' in HOL (see below); it can, should and
wenzelm@7593
  1751
will be instantiated for other types and logics as well.
paulson@6069
  1752
nipkow@7324
  1753
* The simplifier now accepts rewrite rules with flexible heads, eg
nipkow@7324
  1754
     hom ?f ==> ?f(?x+?y) = ?f ?x + ?f ?y
nipkow@7324
  1755
  They are applied like any rule with a non-pattern lhs, i.e. by first-order
nipkow@7324
  1756
  matching.

* New Isabelle/Isar subsystem provides an alternative to traditional
wenzelm@7215
  1762
tactical theorem proving; together with the ProofGeneral/isar user
wenzelm@7215
  1763
interface it offers an interactive environment for developing human
wenzelm@7215
  1764
readable proof documents (Isar == Intelligible semi-automated
wenzelm@7886
  1765
reasoning); for further information see isatool doc isar-ref,

src/HOL/Isar_examples and http://isabelle.in.tum.de/Isar/
wenzelm@7886
  1767
wenzelm@9612
  1768
* improved and simplified presentation of theories: better HTML markup
wenzelm@9612
  1769
(including colors), graph views in several sizes; isatool usedir now
wenzelm@9612
  1770
provides a proper interface for user theories (via -P option); actual
wenzelm@9612
  1771
document preparation based on (PDF)LaTeX is available as well (for
wenzelm@9612
  1772
new-style theories only); see isatool doc system for more information;
wenzelm@7215
  1773
wenzelm@7252
  1774
* native support for Proof General, both for classic Isabelle and
wenzelm@7986
  1775
Isabelle/Isar;
wenzelm@7215
  1776
wenzelm@7791
  1777
* ML function thm_deps visualizes dependencies of theorems and lemmas,
wenzelm@7791
  1778
using the graph browser tool;
wenzelm@7791
  1779
wenzelm@6751
  1780
* Isabelle manuals now also available as PDF;
wenzelm@6751
  1781
wenzelm@6449
  1782
* theory loader rewritten from scratch (may not be fully
wenzelm@6449
  1783
bug-compatible); old loadpath variable has been replaced by show_path,
wenzelm@6671
  1784
add_path, del_path, reset_path functions; new operations such as
wenzelm@7593
  1785
update_thy, touch_thy, remove_thy, use/update_thy_only (see also
wenzelm@7593
  1786
isatool doc ref);
wenzelm@6449
  1787
wenzelm@7215
  1788
* improved isatool install: option -k creates KDE application icon,
wenzelm@7215
  1789
option -p DIR installs standalone binaries;
wenzelm@7215
  1790
wenzelm@7215
  1791
* added ML_PLATFORM setting (useful for cross-platform installations);
wenzelm@7215
  1792
more robust handling of platform specific ML images for SML/NJ;
wenzelm@7215
  1793
wenzelm@7886
  1794
* the settings environment is now statically scoped, i.e. it is never
wenzelm@7986
  1795
created again in sub-processes invoked from isabelle, isatool, or
wenzelm@7886
  1796
Isabelle;
wenzelm@7886
  1797
wenzelm@7215
  1798
* path element specification '~~' refers to '$ISABELLE_HOME';
wenzelm@7215
  1799
wenzelm@6343
  1800
* in locales, the "assumes" and "defines" parts may be omitted if
wenzelm@6343
  1801
empty;
wenzelm@5973
  1802
wenzelm@6269
  1803
* new print_mode "xsymbols" for extended symbol support (e.g. genuine
wenzelm@6269
  1804
long arrows);
wenzelm@6259
  1805
wenzelm@6343
  1806
* new print_mode "HTML";
wenzelm@6343
  1807
wenzelm@6343
  1808
* new flag show_tags controls display of tags of theorems (which are
wenzelm@6343
  1809
basically just comments that may be attached by some tools);
wenzelm@6343
  1810
wenzelm@6461

wenzelm@7450
  1826
wenzelm@7593
  1827
* new shorthand tactics ftac, eatac, datac, fatac;
wenzelm@7593
  1828
wenzelm@7593
  1829
* qed (and friends) now accept "" as result name; in that case the
wenzelm@7986

wenzelm@7593
  1832
wenzelm@7805
  1833

** HOL arithmetic **
wenzelm@7215
  1840
wenzelm@6343
  1841
* There are now decision procedures for linear arithmetic over nat and
wenzelm@6343
  1842
int:
nipkow@6131
  1843
wenzelm@6343
  1844
1. arith_tac copes with arbitrary formulae involving `=', `<', `<=',
wenzelm@6343
  1845
`+', `-', `Suc', `min', `max' and numerical constants; other subterms
wenzelm@6343
  1846
are treated as atomic; subformulae not involving type `nat' or `int'
wenzelm@6343
  1847
are ignored; quantified subformulae are ignored unless they are
wenzelm@6343
  1848
positive universal or negative existential. The tactic has to be
wenzelm@6343
  1849
invoked by hand and can be a little bit slow. In particular, the
wenzelm@6343
  1850
running time is exponential in the number of occurrences of `min' and
wenzelm@6343
  1851
`max', and `-' on `nat'.
nipkow@6131
  1852
wenzelm@6343
  1853
2. fast_arith_tac is a cut-down version of arith_tac: it only takes
wenzelm@6343
  1854
(negated) (in)equalities among the premises and the conclusion into
wenzelm@6343
  1855
account (i.e. no compound formulae) and does not know about `min' and
wenzelm@6343
  1856
`max', and `-' on `nat'. It is fast and is used automatically by the
wenzelm@6343
  1857
simplifier.
nipkow@6131
  1858
wenzelm@6343
  1859
NB: At the moment, these decision procedures do not cope with mixed
wenzelm@6343
  1860
nat/int formulae where the two parts interact, such as `m < n ==>
wenzelm@6343
  1861
int(m) < int(n)'.
oheimb@6028
  1862
wenzelm@7215
  1863
* HOL/Numeral provides a generic theory of numerals (encoded
wenzelm@7313
  1864
efficiently as bit strings); setup for types nat/int/real is in place;
wenzelm@7215
  1865
INCOMPATIBILITY: since numeral syntax is now polymorphic, rather than
wenzelm@7215
  1866
int, existing theories and proof scripts may require a few additional
wenzelm@7215
  1867
type constraints;
wenzelm@7215
  1868
wenzelm@7215
  1869

paulson@7157
  1871
wenzelm@7215
  1872

paulson@6922
  1874
paulson@7287
  1875
* An interface to the Stanford Validity Checker (SVC) is available through the
paulson@7287
  1876
tactic svc_tac.  Propositional tautologies and theorems of linear arithmetic
paulson@7287
  1877
are proved automatically.  SVC must be installed separately, and its results
paulson@7287
  1878
must be TAKEN ON TRUST (Isabelle does not check the proofs, but tags any
paulson@7287
  1879
invocation of the underlying oracle).  For SVC see

wenzelm@6278
  1894
-- avoids syntactic ambiguities and treats state, transition, and
wenzelm@6278
  1895

changed syntax and (many) tactics;

wenzelm@6386
  1916
* HOL/typedef: fixed type inference for representing set; type
wenzelm@6386
  1917
arguments now have to occur explicitly on the rhs as type constraints;
wenzelm@6386
  1918
paulson@7287
  1919
* HOL/recdef (TFL): 'congs' syntax now expects comma separated list of theorem
paulson@7287
  1920
names rather than an ML expression;
paulson@7287
  1921
paulson@7287
  1922
* HOL/defer_recdef (TFL): like recdef but the well-founded relation can be
paulson@7287
  1923
supplied later.  Program schemes can be defined, such as
paulson@7287
  1924
    "While B C s = (if B s then While B C (C s) else s)"
paulson@7287
  1925
where the well-founded relation can be chosen after B and C have been given.
wenzelm@6563
  1926
wenzelm@7215
  1927
* HOL/List: the constructors of type list are now Nil and Cons;
wenzelm@7215
  1928
INCOMPATIBILITY: while [] and infix # syntax is still there, of
wenzelm@7215
  1929
course, ML tools referring to List.list.op # etc. have to be adapted;
wenzelm@7215
  1930
wenzelm@7238
  1931
* HOL_quantifiers flag superseded by "HOL" print mode, which is
wenzelm@7238
  1932
disabled by default; run isabelle with option -m HOL to get back to
wenzelm@7238
  1933
the original Gordon/HOL-style output;
wenzelm@7238
  1934
wenzelm@7238
  1935
* HOL/Ord.thy: new bounded quantifier syntax (input only): ALL x<y. P,
wenzelm@7238
  1936
ALL x<=y. P, EX x<y. P, EX x<=y. P;
wenzelm@7238
  1937
wenzelm@7238
  1938
* HOL basic syntax simplified (more orthogonal): all variants of
wenzelm@7238
  1939
All/Ex now support plain / symbolic / HOL notation; plain syntax for
wenzelm@7238
  1940
Eps operator is provided as well: "SOME x. P[x]";
wenzelm@7238
  1941
berghofe@7320
  1942
* HOL/Sum.thy: sum_case has been moved to HOL/Datatype;
wenzelm@7261
  1943
wenzelm@7280
  1944
* HOL/Univ.thy: infix syntax <*>, <+>, <**>, <+> eliminated and made
wenzelm@7280
  1945
thus available for user theories;
wenzelm@7280
  1946
wenzelm@7300
  1947
* HOLCF/IOA/Sequents: renamed 'Cons' to 'Consq' to avoid clash with
wenzelm@7300
  1948
HOL/List; hardly an INCOMPATIBILITY since '>>' syntax is used all the
wenzelm@7300
  1949
time;
wenzelm@7300
  1950
wenzelm@7986
  1951
* HOL: new tactic smp_tac: int -> int -> tactic, which applies spec
wenzelm@7986
  1952
several times and then mp;

wenzelm@7215
  1958
formulas;
paulson@7113
  1959
paulson@7113
  1960
* the simplifier is now installed
paulson@7113
  1961
wenzelm@8729
  1962
* the axiom system has been generalized (thanks to Soren Heilmann)
paulson@7113
  1963
paulson@7113
  1964
* the classical reasoner now has a default rule database

*** ZF ***
paulson@6064
  1968
paulson@6064
  1969
* new primrec section allows primitive recursive functions to be given
wenzelm@6269
  1970
directly (as in HOL) over datatypes and the natural numbers;
paulson@6064
  1971
wenzelm@6269
  1972
* new tactics induct_tac and exhaust_tac for induction (or case
wenzelm@6269
  1973
analysis) over datatypes and the natural numbers;
paulson@6064
  1974
paulson@6064
  1975
* the datatype declaration of type T now defines the recursor T_rec;
paulson@6064
  1976
paulson@6141
  1977
* simplification automatically does freeness reasoning for datatype
wenzelm@6269
  1978
constructors;
paulson@6141
  1979
wenzelm@6269
  1980
* automatic type-inference, with AddTCs command to insert new
wenzelm@6269
  1981
type-checking rules;
paulson@6155
  1982
wenzelm@6269
  1983
* datatype introduction rules are now added as Safe Introduction rules
wenzelm@6269
  1984
to the claset;
paulson@6155
  1985
wenzelm@6269
  1986
* the syntax "if P then x else y" is now available in addition to
wenzelm@6269
  1987
if(P,x,y);

*** Internal programming interfaces ***
wenzelm@6343
  1991
wenzelm@7919
  1992
* tuned simplifier trace output; new flag debug_simp;
wenzelm@7919
  1993
wenzelm@7420
  1994
* structures Vartab / Termtab (instances of TableFun) offer efficient
wenzelm@7420
  1995
tables indexed by indexname_ord / term_ord (compatible with aconv);
wenzelm@7420
  1996
wenzelm@6386
  1997
* AxClass.axclass_tac lost the theory argument;
wenzelm@6386
  1998
wenzelm@6343
  1999
* tuned current_goals_markers semantics: begin / end goal avoids
wenzelm@6343
  2000
printing empty lines;
wenzelm@6343
  2001
wenzelm@6343
  2002
* removed prs and prs_fn hook, which was broken because it did not
wenzelm@6343
  2003
include \n in its semantics, forcing writeln to add one
wenzelm@6343
  2004
uncoditionally; replaced prs_fn by writeln_fn; consider std_output:
wenzelm@6343
  2005
string -> unit if you really want to output text without newline;
wenzelm@6343
  2006
wenzelm@6343
  2007
* Symbol.output subject to print mode; INCOMPATIBILITY: defaults to
wenzelm@6343
  2008
plain output, interface builders may have to enable 'isabelle_font'
wenzelm@6343
  2009
mode to get Isabelle font glyphs as before;
wenzelm@6343
  2010
wenzelm@6343
  2011
* refined token_translation interface; INCOMPATIBILITY: output length
wenzelm@6343
  2012
now of type real instead of int;
wenzelm@6343
  2013
wenzelm@7196
  2014
* theory loader actions may be traced via new ThyInfo.add_hook
wenzelm@7196
  2015
interface (see src/Pure/Thy/thy_info.ML); example application: keep
wenzelm@7196
  2016
your own database of information attached to *whole* theories -- as
wenzelm@7196
  2017
opposed to intra-theory data slots offered via TheoryDataFun;
wenzelm@7196
  2018
wenzelm@7647
  2019
* proper handling of dangling sort hypotheses (at last!);
wenzelm@7647
  2020
Thm.strip_shyps and Drule.strip_shyps_warning take care of removing
wenzelm@7647
  2021
extra sort hypotheses that can be witnessed from the type signature;
wenzelm@7986
  2022
the force_strip_shyps flag is gone, any remaining shyps are simply
wenzelm@7986
  2023
left in the theorem (with a warning issued by strip_shyps_warning);

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES (see below for more details) ***
wenzelm@4842
  2031
wenzelm@5726
  2032
* several changes of automated proof tools;
wenzelm@5373
  2033
wenzelm@5726
  2034
* HOL: major changes to the inductive and datatype packages, including
wenzelm@5726
  2035
some minor incompatibilities of theory syntax;
berghofe@5214
  2036
wenzelm@5726
  2037
* HOL: renamed r^-1 to 'converse' from 'inverse'; 'inj_onto' is now
wenzelm@5217
  2038
called `inj_on';
paulson@5160
  2039
nipkow@5275
  2040
* HOL: removed duplicate thms in Arith:
nipkow@5275
  2041
  less_imp_add_less  should be replaced by  trans_less_add1
nipkow@5275
  2042
  le_imp_add_le      should be replaced by  trans_le_add1
paulson@5160
  2043
wenzelm@5726
  2044
* HOL: unary minus is now overloaded (new type constraints may be
wenzelm@5726
  2045
required);
paulson@5490
  2046
wenzelm@5726
  2047
* HOL and ZF: unary minus for integers is now #- instead of #~.  In
wenzelm@5726
  2048
ZF, expressions such as n#-1 must be changed to n#- 1, since #-1 is
wenzelm@5726
  2049
now taken as an integer constant.
paulson@5541
  2050
wenzelm@5726
  2051
* Pure: ML function 'theory_of' renamed to 'theory';
wenzelm@5397
  2052
wenzelm@5363
  2053
wenzelm@5127
  2054
*** Proof tools ***
nipkow@4880
  2055
nipkow@5657
  2056
* Simplifier:
nipkow@5657
  2057
  1. Asm_full_simp_tac is now more aggressive.
nipkow@5657
  2058
     1. It will sometimes reorient premises if that increases their power to
nipkow@5657
  2059
        simplify.
nipkow@5657
  2060
     2. It does no longer proceed strictly from left to right but may also
nipkow@5657
  2061
        rotate premises to achieve further simplification.
nipkow@5657
  2062
     For compatibility reasons there is now Asm_lr_simp_tac which is like the
nipkow@5657
  2063
     old Asm_full_simp_tac in that it does not rotate premises.
nipkow@5657
  2064
  2. The simplifier now knows a little bit about nat-arithmetic.
nipkow@4880
  2065
wenzelm@5127
  2066
* Classical reasoner: wrapper mechanism for the classical reasoner now
wenzelm@5127
  2067
allows for selected deletion of wrappers, by introduction of names for
wenzelm@5127
  2068
wrapper functionals.  This implies that addbefore, addSbefore,
wenzelm@5127
  2069
addaltern, and addSaltern now take a pair (name, tactic) as argument,
wenzelm@5127
  2070
and that adding two tactics with the same name overwrites the first
wenzelm@5127
  2071
one (emitting a warning).
oheimb@4824
  2072
  type wrapper = (int -> tactic) -> (int -> tactic)
oheimb@4649
  2073
  setWrapper, setSWrapper, compWrapper and compSWrapper are replaced by
oheimb@4824
  2074
  addWrapper, addSWrapper: claset * (string * wrapper) -> claset
oheimb@4824
  2075
  delWrapper, delSWrapper: claset *  string            -> claset
oheimb@4649
  2076
  getWrapper is renamed to appWrappers, getSWrapper to appSWrappers;
oheimb@4649
  2077
wenzelm@5705
  2078
* Classical reasoner: addbefore/addSbefore now have APPEND/ORELSE
wenzelm@5726
  2079
semantics; addbefore now affects only the unsafe part of step_tac
wenzelm@5726
  2080
etc.; this affects addss/auto_tac/force_tac, so EXISTING PROOFS MAY
wenzelm@5726
  2081
FAIL, but proofs should be fixable easily, e.g. by replacing Auto_tac
wenzelm@5726
  2082
by Force_tac;
oheimb@5524
  2083
wenzelm@5726
  2084
* Classical reasoner: setwrapper to setWrapper and compwrapper to
wenzelm@5726
  2085
compWrapper; added safe wrapper (and access functions for it);
oheimb@5524
  2086
wenzelm@5127
  2087
* HOL/split_all_tac is now much faster and fails if there is nothing
wenzelm@5726
  2088
to split.  Some EXISTING PROOFS MAY REQUIRE ADAPTION because the order
wenzelm@5726
  2089
and the names of the automatically generated variables have changed.
wenzelm@5726
  2090
split_all_tac has moved within claset() from unsafe wrappers to safe
wenzelm@5726
  2091
wrappers, which means that !!-bound variables are split much more
wenzelm@5726
  2092
aggressively, and safe_tac and clarify_tac now split such variables.
wenzelm@5726
  2093
If this splitting is not appropriate, use delSWrapper "split_all_tac".
wenzelm@5726
  2094
Note: the same holds for record_split_tac, which does the job of
wenzelm@5726
  2095
split_all_tac for record fields.
wenzelm@5127
  2096
wenzelm@5726
  2097
* HOL/Simplifier: Rewrite rules for case distinctions can now be added
wenzelm@5726
  2098
permanently to the default simpset using Addsplits just like
wenzelm@5726
  2099
Addsimps. They can be removed via Delsplits just like
wenzelm@5726
  2100
Delsimps. Lower-case versions are also available.
wenzelm@5127
  2101
wenzelm@5726
  2102
* HOL/Simplifier: The rule split_if is now part of the default
wenzelm@5726
  2103
simpset. This means that the simplifier will eliminate all occurrences
wenzelm@5726
  2104
of if-then-else in the conclusion of a goal. To prevent this, you can
wenzelm@5726
  2105
either remove split_if completely from the default simpset by
wenzelm@5726
  2106
`Delsplits [split_if]' or remove it in a specific call of the
wenzelm@5726
  2107
simplifier using `... delsplits [split_if]'.  You can also add/delete
wenzelm@5726
  2108
other case splitting rules to/from the default simpset: every datatype
wenzelm@5726
  2109
generates suitable rules `split_t_case' and `split_t_case_asm' (where
wenzelm@5726
  2110
t is the name of the datatype).
wenzelm@5127
  2111
wenzelm@5726
  2112
* Classical reasoner / Simplifier combination: new force_tac (and
wenzelm@5127
  2113
derivatives Force_tac, force) combines rewriting and classical
wenzelm@5127
  2114
reasoning (and whatever other tools) similarly to auto_tac, but is
wenzelm@5726
  2115
aimed to solve the given subgoal completely.

wenzelm@5127
  2118
*** General ***
wenzelm@5127
  2119
wenzelm@5217
  2120
* new top-level commands `Goal' and `Goalw' that improve upon `goal'
wenzelm@5127
  2121
and `goalw': the theory is no longer needed as an explicit argument -
wenzelm@5127
  2122
the current theory context is used; assumptions are no longer returned
wenzelm@5127
  2123
at the ML-level unless one of them starts with ==> or !!; it is
wenzelm@5217
  2124
recommended to convert to these new commands using isatool fixgoal
wenzelm@5217
  2125
(backup your sources first!);
wenzelm@4842
  2126
wenzelm@5217
  2127
* new top-level commands 'thm' and 'thms' for retrieving theorems from
wenzelm@5207
  2128
the current theory context, and 'theory' to lookup stored theories;
paulson@4806
  2129
paulson@5722
  2130
* new theory section 'locale' for declaring constants, assumptions and
paulson@5722
  2131
definitions that have local scope;
paulson@5722
  2132
wenzelm@5127
  2133
* new theory section 'nonterminals' for purely syntactic types;
wenzelm@4858
  2134
wenzelm@5127
  2135
* new theory section 'setup' for generic ML setup functions
wenzelm@5127
  2136
(e.g. package initialization);
wenzelm@4869
  2137
wenzelm@5131
  2138
* the distribution now includes Isabelle icons: see
wenzelm@5131
  2139
lib/logo/isabelle-{small,tiny}.xpm;
wenzelm@5131
  2140
wenzelm@5363
  2141
* isatool install - install binaries with absolute references to
wenzelm@5363
  2142
ISABELLE_HOME/bin;
wenzelm@5363
  2143
wenzelm@5572
  2144
* isatool logo -- create instances of the Isabelle logo (as EPS);
wenzelm@5572
  2145
wenzelm@5407
  2146
* print mode 'emacs' reserved for Isamode;
wenzelm@5407
  2147
wenzelm@5726
  2148
* support multiple print (ast) translations per constant name;
wenzelm@5726
  2149
wenzelm@6925
  2150
* theorems involving oracles are now printed with a suffixed [!];
wenzelm@6925

paulson@4661
  2153
*** HOL ***
paulson@4661
  2154
wenzelm@5710
  2155
* there is now a tutorial on Isabelle/HOL (do 'isatool doc tutorial');
nipkow@5709
  2156
wenzelm@5217
  2157
* HOL/inductive package reorganized and improved: now supports mutual
paulson@5267
  2158
definitions such as
wenzelm@5217
  2159
wenzelm@5217
  2160
  inductive EVEN ODD
wenzelm@5217
  2161
    intrs

      oddI "n : EVEN ==> Suc n : ODD"
wenzelm@5217
  2164
      evenI "n : ODD ==> Suc n : EVEN"
wenzelm@5217
  2165
wenzelm@5217
  2166
new theorem list "elims" contains an elimination rule for each of the
wenzelm@5217
  2167
recursive sets; inductive definitions now handle disjunctive premises
wenzelm@5217
  2168
correctly (also ZF);
berghofe@5214
  2169
wenzelm@5217
  2170
INCOMPATIBILITIES: requires Inductive as an ancestor; component
wenzelm@5217
  2171
"mutual_induct" no longer exists - the induction rule is always
wenzelm@5217
  2172
contained in "induct";
wenzelm@5217
  2173
wenzelm@5217
  2174
wenzelm@5217
  2175
* HOL/datatype package re-implemented and greatly improved: now
paulson@5267
  2176
supports mutually recursive datatypes such as
wenzelm@5217
  2177
wenzelm@5217
  2178
  datatype
wenzelm@5217
  2179
    'a aexp = IF_THEN_ELSE ('a bexp) ('a aexp) ('a aexp)

berghofe@5214
  2193
wenzelm@5217
  2194
The new tactic  mutual_induct_tac [<var_1>, ..., <var_n>] i  performs
wenzelm@5217
  2195
induction on mutually / indirectly recursive datatypes.
wenzelm@5217
  2196
wenzelm@5217
  2197
Primrec equations are now stored in theory and can be accessed via

INCOMPATIBILITIES:
berghofe@5214
  2201
wenzelm@5217
  2202
  - Theories using datatypes must now have theory Datatype as an
wenzelm@5217
  2203
    ancestor.
wenzelm@5217
  2204
  - The specific <typename>.induct_tac no longer exists - use the
wenzelm@5217
  2205
    generic induct_tac instead.
berghofe@5226
  2206
  - natE has been renamed to nat.exhaust - use exhaust_tac
wenzelm@5217
  2207
    instead of res_inst_tac ... natE. Note that the variable
berghofe@5226
  2208
    names in nat.exhaust differ from the names in natE, this
wenzelm@5217
  2209
    may cause some "fragile" proofs to fail.
wenzelm@5217
  2210
  - The theorems split_<typename>_case and split_<typename>_case_asm
wenzelm@5217
  2211
    have been renamed to <typename>.split and <typename>.split_asm.
wenzelm@5217
  2212
  - Since default sorts of type variables are now handled correctly,
wenzelm@5217
  2213
    some datatype definitions may have to be annotated with explicit
wenzelm@5217
  2214
    sort constraints.
wenzelm@5217
  2215
  - Primrec definitions no longer require function name and type
wenzelm@5217
  2216
    of recursive argument.
berghofe@5214
  2217
wenzelm@5217
  2218
Consider using isatool fixdatatype to adapt your theories and proof
wenzelm@5217
  2219
scripts to the new package (backup your sources first!).
wenzelm@5217
  2220
wenzelm@5217
  2221
wenzelm@5726
  2222
* HOL/record package: considerably improved implementation; now
wenzelm@5726
  2223
includes concrete syntax for record types, terms, updates; theorems
wenzelm@5726
  2224
for surjective pairing and splitting !!-bound record variables; proof
wenzelm@5726
  2225
support is as follows:
wenzelm@5726
  2226
wenzelm@5726
  2227
  1) standard conversions (selectors or updates applied to record
wenzelm@5726
  2228
constructor terms) are part of the standard simpset;
wenzelm@5726
  2229
wenzelm@5726
  2230
  2) inject equations of the form ((x, y) = (x', y')) == x=x' & y=y' are
wenzelm@5726
  2231
made part of standard simpset and claset via addIffs;
wenzelm@5726
  2232
wenzelm@5726
  2233
  3) a tactic for record field splitting (record_split_tac) is part of
wenzelm@5726
  2234
the standard claset (addSWrapper);
wenzelm@5726
  2235
wenzelm@5726
  2236
To get a better idea about these rules you may retrieve them via
wenzelm@5726
  2237
something like 'thms "foo.simps"' or 'thms "foo.iffs"', where "foo" is
wenzelm@5726
  2238
the name of your record type.
wenzelm@5726
  2239
wenzelm@5726
  2240
The split tactic 3) conceptually simplifies by the following rule:
wenzelm@5726
  2241
wenzelm@5726
  2242
  "(!!x. PROP ?P x) == (!!a b. PROP ?P (a, b))"
wenzelm@5726
  2243
wenzelm@5726
  2244
Thus any record variable that is bound by meta-all will automatically
wenzelm@5726
  2245
blow up into some record constructor term, consequently the
wenzelm@5726
  2246
simplifications of 1), 2) apply.  Thus force_tac, auto_tac etc. shall
wenzelm@5726
  2247
solve record problems automatically.
wenzelm@5726
  2248
berghofe@5214
  2249
wenzelm@5125
  2250
* reorganized the main HOL image: HOL/Integ and String loaded by
wenzelm@5125
  2251
default; theory Main includes everything;
wenzelm@5125
  2252
paulson@5650
  2253
* automatic simplification of integer sums and comparisons, using cancellation;
paulson@5650
  2254
oheimb@5526
  2255
* added option_map_eq_Some and not_Some_eq to the default simpset and claset;
wenzelm@5127
  2256
wenzelm@5127
  2257
* added disj_not1 = "(~P | Q) = (P --> Q)" to the default simpset;
wenzelm@5127
  2258
wenzelm@5127
  2259
* many new identities for unions, intersections, set difference, etc.;
wenzelm@5127
  2260
wenzelm@5127
  2261
* expand_if, expand_split, expand_sum_case and expand_nat_case are now
wenzelm@5127
  2262
called split_if, split_split, split_sum_case and split_nat_case (to go
wenzelm@5127
  2263
with add/delsplits);
wenzelm@5125
  2264
wenzelm@5127
  2265
* HOL/Prod introduces simplification procedure unit_eq_proc rewriting
wenzelm@5127
  2266
(?x::unit) = (); this is made part of the default simpset, which COULD
wenzelm@5127
  2267
MAKE EXISTING PROOFS FAIL under rare circumstances (consider
wenzelm@5207
  2268
'Delsimprocs [unit_eq_proc];' as last resort); also note that
wenzelm@5207
  2269
unit_abs_eta_conv is added in order to counter the effect of
wenzelm@5207
  2270
unit_eq_proc on (%u::unit. f u), replacing it by f rather than by
wenzelm@5207
  2271
%u.f();
wenzelm@5125
  2272
wenzelm@5217
  2273
* HOL/Fun INCOMPATIBILITY: `inj_onto' is now called `inj_on' (which
wenzelm@5217
  2274
makes more sense);
berghofe@5109
  2275
paulson@5475
  2276
* HOL/Set INCOMPATIBILITY: rule `equals0D' is now a well-formed destruct rule;
paulson@5475
  2277
  It and 'sym RS equals0D' are now in the default  claset, giving automatic
paulson@5475
  2278
  disjointness reasoning but breaking a few old proofs.
paulson@5267
  2279
wenzelm@5217
  2280
* HOL/Relation INCOMPATIBILITY: renamed the relational operator r^-1
wenzelm@5217
  2281
to 'converse' from 'inverse' (for compatibility with ZF and some
wenzelm@5217
  2282
literature);
wenzelm@5085
  2283
wenzelm@5127
  2284
* HOL/recdef can now declare non-recursive functions, with {} supplied as
wenzelm@5127
  2285
the well-founded relation;
oheimb@4838
  2286
paulson@5490
  2287
* HOL/Set INCOMPATIBILITY: the complement of set A is now written -A instead of
paulson@5490
  2288
    Compl A.  The "Compl" syntax remains available as input syntax for this
paulson@5490
  2289
    release ONLY.
paulson@5490
  2290
wenzelm@5127
  2291
* HOL/Update: new theory of function updates:
wenzelm@5127
  2292
    f(a:=b) == %x. if x=a then b else f x
wenzelm@5127
  2293
may also be iterated as in f(a:=b,c:=d,...);
nipkow@5077
  2294
wenzelm@5127
  2295
* HOL/Vimage: new theory for inverse image of a function, syntax f-``B;
paulson@4899
  2296
nipkow@5282
  2297
* HOL/List:
nipkow@5282
  2298
  - new function list_update written xs[i:=v] that updates the i-th
nipkow@5282
  2299
    list position. May also be iterated as in xs[i:=a,j:=b,...].
nipkow@5428
  2300
  - new function `upt' written [i..j(] which generates the list
nipkow@5428
  2301
    [i,i+1,...,j-1], i.e. the upper bound is excluded. To include the upper
nipkow@5428
  2302
    bound write [i..j], which is a shorthand for [i..j+1(].
nipkow@5282
  2303
  - new lexicographic orderings and corresponding wellfoundedness theorems.
paulson@4779
  2304
wenzelm@5127
  2305
* HOL/Arith:
wenzelm@5127
  2306
  - removed 'pred' (predecessor) function;
wenzelm@5127
  2307
  - generalized some theorems about n-1;
wenzelm@5127
  2308
  - many new laws about "div" and "mod";
wenzelm@5127
  2309
  - new laws about greatest common divisors (see theory ex/Primes);
oheimb@4766
  2310
wenzelm@5127
  2311
* HOL/Relation: renamed the relational operator r^-1 "converse"
wenzelm@4842
  2312
instead of "inverse";
wenzelm@4711
  2313
nipkow@5651
  2314
* HOL/Induct/Multiset: a theory of multisets, including the wellfoundedness
nipkow@5651
  2315
  of the multiset ordering;
nipkow@5651
  2316
wenzelm@5127
  2317
* directory HOL/Real: a construction of the reals using Dedekind cuts
nipkow@5651
  2318
  (not included by default);
nipkow@4835
  2319
wenzelm@5127
  2320
* directory HOL/UNITY: Chandy and Misra's UNITY formalism;
wenzelm@4711
  2321
nipkow@5651
  2322
* directory HOL/Hoare: a new version of Hoare logic which permits many-sorted
nipkow@5651
  2323
  programs, i.e. different program variables may have different types.
nipkow@5651
  2324
paulson@5142
  2325
* calling (stac rew i) now fails if "rew" has no effect on the goal
paulson@5142
  2326
  [previously, this check worked only if the rewrite rule was unconditional]
paulson@5308
  2327
  Now rew can involve either definitions or equalities (either == or =).
wenzelm@5002
  2328
wenzelm@5363
  2329
paulson@4879
  2330
*** ZF ***
paulson@4879
  2331
paulson@5332
  2332
* theory Main includes everything; INCOMPATIBILITY: theory ZF.thy contains
paulson@5332
  2333
  only the theorems proved on ZF.ML;
paulson@5160
  2334
paulson@5475
  2335
* ZF INCOMPATIBILITY: rule `equals0D' is now a well-formed destruct rule;
paulson@5475
  2336
  It and 'sym RS equals0D' are now in the default  claset, giving automatic
paulson@5475
  2337
  disjointness reasoning but breaking a few old proofs.
paulson@5267
  2338
paulson@5160
  2339
* ZF/Update: new theory of function updates
paulson@5160
  2340
    with default rewrite rule  f(x:=y) ` z = if(z=x, y, f`z)
paulson@5160
  2341
  may also be iterated as in f(a:=b,c:=d,...);
paulson@5160
  2342
paulson@4879
  2343
* in  let x=t in u(x), neither t nor u(x) has to be an FOL term.
oheimb@4649
  2344
paulson@5142
  2345
* calling (stac rew i) now fails if "rew" has no effect on the goal
paulson@5142
  2346
  [previously, this check worked only if the rewrite rule was unconditional]
paulson@5308
  2347
  Now rew can involve either definitions or equalities (either == or =).
paulson@5142
  2348
paulson@5160
  2349
* case_tac provided for compatibility with HOL
paulson@5160
  2350
    (like the old excluded_middle_tac, but with subgoals swapped)
paulson@5160
  2351
wenzelm@4842

wenzelm@5127
  2353
*** Internal programming interfaces ***
wenzelm@5002
  2354
wenzelm@5251
  2355
* Pure: several new basic modules made available for general use, see
wenzelm@5251
  2356
also src/Pure/README;
wenzelm@5207
  2357
wenzelm@5008
  2358
* improved the theory data mechanism to support encapsulation (data
wenzelm@5008
  2359
kind name replaced by private Object.kind, acting as authorization
wenzelm@5373
  2360
key); new type-safe user interface via functor TheoryDataFun; generic
wenzelm@5373
  2361
print_data function becomes basically useless;
wenzelm@5002
  2362
wenzelm@5251
  2363
* removed global_names compatibility flag -- all theory declarations
wenzelm@5251
  2364
are qualified by default;
wenzelm@5251
  2365
wenzelm@5085
  2366
* module Pure/Syntax now offers quote / antiquote translation
wenzelm@5085
  2367
functions (useful for Hoare logic etc. with implicit dependencies);
wenzelm@5373
  2368
see HOL/ex/Antiquote for an example use;
wenzelm@5085
  2369
wenzelm@5127
  2370
* Simplifier now offers conversions (asm_)(full_)rewrite: simpset ->
wenzelm@5127
  2371
cterm -> thm;
wenzelm@5127
  2372
wenzelm@5207
  2373
* new tactical CHANGED_GOAL for checking that a tactic modifies a
wenzelm@5207
  2374
subgoal;
paulson@5142
  2375
wenzelm@5251
  2376
* Display.print_goals function moved to Locale.print_goals;
wenzelm@5251
  2377
wenzelm@5731
  2378
* standard print function for goals supports current_goals_markers
wenzelm@5731
  2379
variable for marking begin of proof, end of proof, start of goal; the
wenzelm@5731
  2380
default is ("", "", ""); setting current_goals_markers := ("<proof>",
wenzelm@5731
  2381
"</proof>", "<goal>") causes SGML like tagged proof state printing,
wenzelm@5731
  2382
for example;

  2389
*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES (see below for more details) ***
wenzelm@4410
  2390
wenzelm@4410
  2391
* changed lexical syntax of terms / types: dots made part of long
wenzelm@4410
  2392
identifiers, e.g. "%x.x" no longer possible, should be "%x. x";
wenzelm@4410
  2393
wenzelm@4410
  2394
* simpset (and claset) reference variable replaced by functions
wenzelm@4410
  2395
simpset / simpset_ref;
wenzelm@4410
  2396
wenzelm@4410
  2397
* no longer supports theory aliases (via merge) and non-trivial
wenzelm@4410
  2398
implicit merge of thms' signatures;
wenzelm@4410
  2399
wenzelm@4410
  2400
* most internal names of constants changed due to qualified names;
wenzelm@4410
  2401
wenzelm@4410
  2402
* changed Pure/Sequence interface (see Pure/seq.ML);
wenzelm@4410
  2403
wenzelm@3454
  2404
paulson@3715
  2405
*** General Changes ***
paulson@3715
  2406
wenzelm@4174
  2407
* hierachically structured name spaces (for consts, types, axms, thms
wenzelm@3943
  2408
etc.); new lexical class 'longid' (e.g. Foo.bar.x) may render much of
wenzelm@4108
  2409
old input syntactically incorrect (e.g. "%x.x"); COMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@4108
  2410
isatool fixdots ensures space after dots (e.g. "%x. x"); set
wenzelm@4174
  2411
long_names for fully qualified output names; NOTE: ML programs
wenzelm@4174
  2412
(special tactics, packages etc.) referring to internal names may have
wenzelm@4174
  2413
to be adapted to cope with fully qualified names; in case of severe
wenzelm@4174
  2414
backward campatibility problems try setting 'global_names' at compile
wenzelm@4174
  2415
time to have enrything declared within a flat name space; one may also
wenzelm@4174
  2416
fine tune name declarations in theories via the 'global' and 'local'
wenzelm@4174
  2417
section;
wenzelm@4108
  2418
wenzelm@4108
  2419
* reimplemented the implicit simpset and claset using the new anytype
wenzelm@4108
  2420
data filed in signatures; references simpset:simpset ref etc. are
wenzelm@4108
  2421
replaced by functions simpset:unit->simpset and
wenzelm@4108
  2422
simpset_ref:unit->simpset ref; COMPATIBILITY: use isatool fixclasimp
wenzelm@4108
  2423
to patch your ML files accordingly;
paulson@3856
  2424
wenzelm@3857
  2425
* HTML output now includes theory graph data for display with Java
wenzelm@3857
  2426
applet or isatool browser; data generated automatically via isatool
wenzelm@3901
  2427
usedir (see -i option, ISABELLE_USEDIR_OPTIONS);
wenzelm@3857
  2428
paulson@3856
  2429
* defs may now be conditional; improved rewrite_goals_tac to handle
paulson@3856
  2430
conditional equations;
paulson@3856
  2431
wenzelm@4174
  2432
* defs now admits additional type arguments, using TYPE('a) syntax;
wenzelm@4174
  2433
wenzelm@3901
  2434
* theory aliases via merge (e.g. M=A+B+C) no longer supported, always
wenzelm@3901
  2435
creates a new theory node; implicit merge of thms' signatures is
wenzelm@4112
  2436
restricted to 'trivial' ones; COMPATIBILITY: one may have to use
wenzelm@3901
  2437
transfer:theory->thm->thm in (rare) cases;
wenzelm@3901
  2438
wenzelm@3968
  2439
* improved handling of draft signatures / theories; draft thms (and
wenzelm@3968
  2440
ctyps, cterms) are automatically promoted to real ones;
wenzelm@3968
  2441
wenzelm@3901
  2442
* slightly changed interfaces for oracles: admit many per theory, named
wenzelm@3901
  2443
(e.g. oracle foo = mlfun), additional name argument for invoke_oracle;
wenzelm@3901
  2444
wenzelm@3901
  2445
* print_goals: optional output of const types (set show_consts and
wenzelm@3901
  2446
show_types);
wenzelm@3851
  2447
wenzelm@4388
  2448
* improved output of warnings (###) and errors (***);
wenzelm@3697
  2449
paulson@4178
  2450
* subgoal_tac displays a warning if the new subgoal has type variables;
paulson@4178
  2451
paulson@3715
  2452
* removed old README and Makefiles;
wenzelm@3697
  2453
paulson@3856
  2454
* replaced print_goals_ref hook by print_current_goals_fn and result_error_fn;
wenzelm@3670
  2455
paulson@3715
  2456
* removed obsolete init_pps and init_database;
paulson@3715
  2457
paulson@3715
  2458
* deleted the obsolete tactical STATE, which was declared by
paulson@3715
  2459
    fun STATE tacfun st = tacfun st st;
paulson@3715
  2460
wenzelm@4388
  2461
* cd and use now support path variables, e.g. $ISABELLE_HOME, or ~
wenzelm@4388
  2462
(which abbreviates $HOME);
wenzelm@4269
  2463
wenzelm@4269
  2464
* changed Pure/Sequence interface (see Pure/seq.ML); COMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@4269
  2465
use isatool fixseq to adapt your ML programs (this works for fully
wenzelm@4269
  2466
qualified references to the Sequence structure only!);
wenzelm@4269
  2467
wenzelm@4381
  2468
* use_thy no longer requires writable current directory; it always
wenzelm@4381
  2469
reloads .ML *and* .thy file, if either one is out of date;
wenzelm@4269
  2470
paulson@3715
  2471
paulson@3715
  2472
*** Classical Reasoner ***
paulson@3715
  2473
wenzelm@3744
  2474
* Clarify_tac, clarify_tac, clarify_step_tac, Clarify_step_tac: new
wenzelm@3744
  2475
tactics that use classical reasoning to simplify a subgoal without
wenzelm@3744
  2476
splitting it into several subgoals;
paulson@3715
  2477
paulson@3719
  2478
* Safe_tac: like safe_tac but uses the default claset;
paulson@3719
  2479
paulson@3715
  2480
paulson@3715
  2481
*** Simplifier ***
paulson@3715
  2482
paulson@3715
  2483
* added simplification meta rules:
paulson@3715

paulson@3715
  2489
* added prems argument to simplification procedures;
paulson@3715
  2490
paulson@4325
  2491
* HOL, FOL, ZF: added infix function `addsplits':
paulson@4325
  2492
  instead of `<simpset> setloop (split_tac <thms>)'
paulson@4325
  2493
  you can simply write `<simpset> addsplits <thms>'

wenzelm@3985
  2500
* no longer handles consts with name "" -- declare as 'syntax' instead;
paulson@3856

  2502
* pretty printer: changed order of mixfix annotation preference (again!);
wenzelm@3846
  2503
paulson@3715
  2504
* Pure: fixed idt/idts vs. pttrn/pttrns syntactic categories;

*** HOL ***
paulson@3715
  2508
wenzelm@5726
  2509
* HOL: there is a new splitter `split_asm_tac' that can be used e.g.
oheimb@4189
  2510
  with `addloop' of the simplifier to faciliate case splitting in premises.
oheimb@4189

wenzelm@3985
  2513
wenzelm@3985
  2514
* HOL/Auth: new protocol proofs including some for the Internet
nipkow@4035
  2515
  protocol TLS;
wenzelm@3985
  2516
wenzelm@4125
  2517
* HOL/Map: new theory of `maps' a la VDM;
nipkow@3982
  2518
wenzelm@4335
  2519
* HOL/simplifier: simplification procedures nat_cancel_sums for
wenzelm@4335
  2520
cancelling out common nat summands from =, <, <= (in)equalities, or
wenzelm@4335
  2521

wenzelm@4335
  2522
cancelling common factor from =, <, <= (in)equalities over natural
wenzelm@4373
  2523
sums; nat_cancel contains both kinds of procedures, it is installed by
wenzelm@4373
  2524
default in Arith.thy -- this COULD MAKE EXISTING PROOFS FAIL;
wenzelm@4335
  2525

* HOL/datatype
nipkow@4035

oheimb@4930
  2551
  which can be added to a simpset via `addsplits'. The existing theorems
oheimb@4930
  2552
  expand_list_case and expand_option_case have been renamed to
oheimb@4930
  2553
  split_list_case and split_option_case.
oheimb@4189
  2554
nipkow@4361
  2555
* HOL/Arithmetic:
nipkow@4361
  2556
  - `pred n' is automatically converted to `n-1'.
nipkow@4361
  2557
    Users are strongly encouraged not to use `pred' any longer,
nipkow@4361
  2558
    because it will disappear altogether at some point.
nipkow@4361
  2559
  - Users are strongly encouraged to write "0 < n" rather than
nipkow@4361
  2560
    "n ~= 0". Theorems and proof tools have been modified towards this
nipkow@4361
  2561
    `standard'.
nipkow@4357
  2562
nipkow@4502
  2563
* HOL/Lists:
nipkow@4502
  2564
  the function "set_of_list" has been renamed "set" (and its theorems too);
nipkow@4502
  2565
  the function "nth" now takes its arguments in the reverse order and
nipkow@4502
  2566
  has acquired the infix notation "!" as in "xs!n".
paulson@3570

* HOL/Set: UNIV is now a constant and is no longer translated to Compl{};
paulson@4154
  2569
paulson@4154
  2570
* HOL/Set: The operator (UN x.B x) now abbreviates (UN x:UNIV. B x) and its
paulson@4154
  2571
  specialist theorems (like UN1_I) are gone.  Similarly for (INT x.B x);
paulson@4154
  2572
wenzelm@4575
  2573
* HOL/record: extensible records with schematic structural subtyping
wenzelm@4575
  2574
(single inheritance); EXPERIMENTAL version demonstrating the encoding,
wenzelm@4575
  2575
still lacks various theorems and concrete record syntax;

*** HOLCF ***
wenzelm@3535
  2579
wenzelm@4125
  2580
* removed "axioms" and "generated by" sections;
wenzelm@4125
  2581
oheimb@4123
  2582
* replaced "ops" section by extended "consts" section, which is capable of
wenzelm@4125
  2583
  handling the continuous function space "->" directly;
wenzelm@4125
  2584
wenzelm@4125
  2585
* domain package:
wenzelm@4125
  2586
  . proves theorems immediately and stores them in the theory,
wenzelm@4125
  2587
  . creates hierachical name space,
wenzelm@4125
  2588
  . now uses normal mixfix annotations (instead of cinfix...),
wenzelm@4125
  2589
  . minor changes to some names and values (for consistency),
wenzelm@4125
  2590
  . e.g. cases -> casedist, dists_eq -> dist_eqs, [take_lemma] -> take_lemmas,
wenzelm@4125
  2591
  . separator between mutual domain defs: changed "," to "and",
wenzelm@4125
  2592
  . improved handling of sort constraints;  now they have to
wenzelm@4125
  2593
    appear on the left-hand side of the equations only;
oheimb@4123
  2594
oheimb@4123
  2595
* fixed LAM <x,y,zs>.b syntax;
wenzelm@3567
  2596
wenzelm@3744
  2597
* added extended adm_tac to simplifier in HOLCF -- can now discharge
wenzelm@3744
  2598
adm (%x. P (t x)), where P is chainfinite and t continuous;

* FOL: there is a new splitter `split_asm_tac' that can be used e.g.
oheimb@4189
  2604
  with `addloop' of the simplifier to faciliate case splitting in premises.
oheimb@4189
  2605
wenzelm@3744
  2606
* qed_spec_mp, qed_goal_spec_mp, qed_goalw_spec_mp are available, as
wenzelm@3744
  2607
in HOL, they strip ALL and --> from proved theorems;

paulson@3002
  2614
*** General Changes ***
paulson@3002
  2615
paulson@3002
  2616
* new utilities to build / run / maintain Isabelle etc. (in parts
paulson@3002
  2617
still somewhat experimental); old Makefiles etc. still functional;
wenzelm@2971
  2618
wenzelm@3205
  2619
* new 'Isabelle System Manual';
wenzelm@3205
  2620
wenzelm@2825
  2621
* INSTALL text, together with ./configure and ./build scripts;
wenzelm@2773
  2622
wenzelm@3006
  2623
* reimplemented type inference for greater efficiency, better error
wenzelm@3006
  2624
messages and clean internal interface;
paulson@3002
  2625
paulson@3002
  2626
* prlim command for dealing with lots of subgoals (an easier way of
paulson@3002
  2627
setting goals_limit);
paulson@3002
  2628
wenzelm@3006
  2629
wenzelm@3006
  2630
*** Syntax ***
paulson@3002
  2631
wenzelm@3116
  2632
* supports alternative (named) syntax tables (parser and pretty
wenzelm@3116
  2633
printer); internal interface is provided by add_modesyntax(_i);
wenzelm@3116
  2634
paulson@3002
  2635
* Pure, FOL, ZF, HOL, HOLCF now support symbolic input and output; to
paulson@3002
  2636
be used in conjunction with the Isabelle symbol font; uses the
paulson@3002
  2637
"symbols" syntax table;
paulson@3002
  2638
wenzelm@2705
  2639
* added token_translation interface (may translate name tokens in
wenzelm@2756
  2640
arbitrary ways, dependent on their type (free, bound, tfree, ...) and
wenzelm@3116
  2641
the current print_mode); IMPORTANT: user print translation functions
