New in this Isabelle version

*** General ***
wenzelm@37536
     8
wenzelm@37536
     9
* Explicit treatment of UTF8 sequences as Isabelle symbols, such that
wenzelm@37536
    10
a Unicode character is treated as a single symbol, not a sequence of
wenzelm@37536
    11
non-ASCII bytes as before.  Since Isabelle/ML string literals may
wenzelm@37536
    12
contain symbols without further backslash escapes, Unicode can now be
wenzelm@37536
    13
used here as well.  Recall that Symbol.explode in ML provides a
wenzelm@37536
    14
consistent view on symbols, while raw explode (or String.explode)
wenzelm@37536
    15
merely give a byte-oriented representation.
wenzelm@37536
    16
wenzelm@38135
    17
* Theory loading: only the master source file is looked-up in the
wenzelm@38135
    18
implicit load path, all other files are addressed relatively to its
wenzelm@38135
    19
directory.  Minor INCOMPATIBILITY, subtle change in semantics.
wenzelm@38135
    20
wenzelm@37939
    21
* Special treatment of ML file names has been discontinued.
wenzelm@37939
    22
Historically, optional extensions .ML or .sml were added on demand --
wenzelm@37939
    23
at the cost of clarity of file dependencies.  Recall that Isabelle/ML
wenzelm@37939
    24
files exclusively use the .ML extension.  Minor INCOMPATIBILTY.
wenzelm@37939
    25
wenzelm@38980
    26
* Various options that affect pretty printing etc. are now properly
wenzelm@38767
    27
handled within the context via configuration options, instead of
wenzelm@38767
    28
unsynchronized references.  There are both ML Config.T entities and
wenzelm@38767
    29
Isar declaration attributes to access these.

wenzelm@39125
    50
wenzelm@39125
    51
Note that corresponding "..._default" references in ML may be only
wenzelm@38767
    52
changed globally at the ROOT session setup, but *not* within a theory.

*** Pure ***
ballarin@38110
    56
ballarin@38110
    57
* Interpretation command 'interpret' accepts a list of equations like
ballarin@38110
    58
'interpretation' does.
ballarin@38110
    59
ballarin@38110
    60
* Diagnostic command 'print_interps' prints interpretations in proofs
ballarin@38110
    61
in addition to interpretations in theories.
ballarin@38110
    62
wenzelm@38708
    63
* Discontinued obsolete 'global' and 'local' commands to manipulate
wenzelm@38708
    64
the theory name space.  Rare INCOMPATIBILITY.  The ML functions
wenzelm@38708
    65
Sign.root_path and Sign.local_path may be applied directly where this
wenzelm@38708
    66
feature is still required for historical reasons.
wenzelm@38708
    67
haftmann@39215
    68
* Discontinued ancient 'constdefs' command.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use
haftmann@39215
    69
'definition' instead.

*** HOL ***
haftmann@37387
    73
nipkow@39199
    74
* Renamed lemmas: expand_fun_eq -> ext_iff, expand_set_eq -> set_ext_iff
nipkow@39199
    75
haftmann@38857
    76
* Renamed class eq and constant eq (for code generation) to class equal
haftmann@38857
    77
and constant equal, plus renaming of related facts and various tuning.
haftmann@38857
    78
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@38857
    79
haftmann@38814
    80
* Scala (2.8 or higher) has been added to the target languages of
haftmann@38814
    81
the code generator.
haftmann@38814
    82
haftmann@38642
    83
* Dropped type classes mult_mono and mult_mono1.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@38642
    84
haftmann@38622
    85
* Theory SetsAndFunctions has been split into Function_Algebras and Set_Algebras;
haftmann@38622
    86
canonical names for instance definitions for functions; various improvements.
haftmann@38622
    87
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@38622
    88
haftmann@38545
    89
* Records: logical foundation type for records do not carry a '_type' suffix
haftmann@38545
    90
any longer.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@38545
    91
haftmann@38535
    92
* Code generation for records: more idiomatic representation of record types.
haftmann@38535
    93
Warning: records are not covered by ancient SML code generation any longer.
haftmann@38537
    94
INCOMPATIBILITY.  In cases of need, a suitable rep_datatype declaration
haftmann@38537
    95
helps to succeed then:
haftmann@38537
    96
haftmann@38537
    97
  record 'a foo = ...
haftmann@38537
    98
  ...
haftmann@38537
    99
  rep_datatype foo_ext ...
haftmann@38535
   100
haftmann@38461
   101
* Session Imperative_HOL: revamped, corrected dozens of inadequacies.
haftmann@38461
   102
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@38461
   103
haftmann@38461
   104
* Quickcheck in locales considers interpretations of that locale for
haftmann@38461
   105
counter example search.
haftmann@38461
   106
haftmann@38347
   107
* Theory Library/Monad_Syntax provides do-syntax for monad types.  Syntax
haftmann@38347
   108
in Library/State_Monad has been changed to avoid ambiguities.
haftmann@38347
   109
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@38347
   110
haftmann@38461
   111
* Code generator: export_code without explicit file declaration prints
haftmann@37820
   112
to standard output.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@37820
   113
haftmann@37679
   114
* Abolished symbol type names:  "prod" and "sum" replace "*" and "+"
haftmann@37681
   115
respectively.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@37679
   116
haftmann@37591
   117
* Constant "split" has been merged with constant "prod_case";  names
haftmann@37591
   118
of ML functions, facts etc. involving split have been retained so far,
haftmann@37591
   119
though.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@37591
   120
haftmann@37595
   121
* Dropped old infix syntax "mem" for List.member;  use "in set"
haftmann@37595
   122
instead.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@37595
   123
haftmann@37595
   124

haftmann@37595

haftmann@37595
   133
INCOMPATIBILITY.  Note that these were not suppossed to be used
haftmann@37595
   134
regularly unless for striking reasons;  their main purpose was code
haftmann@37595
   135
generation.
haftmann@37595
   136
haftmann@37387

   168
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@37383
   169
haftmann@37411
   170
* Removed simplifier congruence rule of "prod_case", as has for long
haftmann@38524
   171
been the case with "split".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@37411
   172
haftmann@37423
   173
* Datatype package: theorems generated for executable equality
haftmann@37423
   174
(class eq) carry proper names and are treated as default code
haftmann@37423
   175
equations.
haftmann@37423
   176
krauss@39150
   177
* Removed lemma Option.is_none_none (Duplicate of is_none_def).
krauss@39150
   178
INCOMPATIBILITY.
krauss@39150
   179
haftmann@37423
   180
* List.thy: use various operations from the Haskell prelude when
haftmann@37423
   181
generating Haskell code.
haftmann@37423
   182
haftmann@38524
   183
* code_simp.ML and method code_simp: simplification with rules determined
haftmann@38524
   184
by code generator.
haftmann@37442
   185
haftmann@37442
   186
* code generator: do not print function definitions for case
haftmann@37442
   187
combinators any longer.
haftmann@37442
   188
hoelzl@37666
   189
* Multivariate Analysis: Introduced a type class for euclidean space. Most
hoelzl@37666
   190
theorems are now stated in terms of euclidean spaces instead of finite
hoelzl@37666
   191
cartesian products.

     CARD('n)     ~> DIM('a)
hoelzl@37666
   203
hoelzl@37666
   204
Also note that the indices are now natural numbers and not from some finite
hoelzl@37666
   205
type. Finite cartesian products of euclidean spaces, products of euclidean
hoelzl@37666
   206
spaces the real and complex numbers are instantiated to be euclidean_spaces.
hoelzl@37666
   207
hoelzl@37666
   208
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@37383
   209
hoelzl@38656
   210
* Probability: Introduced pinfreal as real numbers with infinity. Use pinfreal
hoelzl@38656
   211
as value for measures. Introduces Lebesgue Measure based on the integral in
hoelzl@38656
   212
Multivariate Analysis. Proved Radon Nikodym for arbitrary sigma finite measure
hoelzl@38656
   213
spaces.
hoelzl@38656
   214
hoelzl@38656
   215
 INCOMPATIBILITY.
hoelzl@38656
   216
bulwahn@37735
   217
* Inductive package: offers new command "inductive_simps" to automatically
haftmann@38461
   218
derive instantiated and simplified equations for inductive predicates,
haftmann@38461
   219
similar to inductive_cases.
bulwahn@37735
   220
hoelzl@39077
   221
* "bij f" is now an abbreviation of "bij_betw f UNIV UNIV". surj_on is a
hoelzl@39077
   222
generalization of surj, and "surj f" is now a abbreviation of "surj_on f UNIV".
hoelzl@39077
   223
The theorems bij_def and surj_def are unchanged.

*** FOL ***
haftmann@38522

wenzelm@37868
   235
*** ML ***
wenzelm@37868
   236
wenzelm@38980
   237
* Configuration option show_question_marks only affects regular pretty
wenzelm@38980
   238
printing of types and terms, not raw Term.string_of_vname.
wenzelm@38980
   239
wenzelm@39164
   240
* ML_Context.thm and ML_Context.thms are no longer pervasive.  Rare
wenzelm@39164
   241
INCOMPATIBILITY, superseded by static antiquotations @{thm} and
wenzelm@39164
   242
@{thms} for most purposes.
wenzelm@39164
   243
wenzelm@38980
   244
* ML structure Unsynchronized never opened, not even in Isar
wenzelm@38980
   245
interaction mode as before.  Old Unsynchronized.set etc. have been
wenzelm@38980
   246
discontinued -- use plain := instead.  This should be *rare* anyway,
wenzelm@38980
   247
since modern tools always work via official context data, notably
wenzelm@38980
   248
configuration options.
wenzelm@38980
   249
wenzelm@37868
   250
* ML antiquotations @{theory} and @{theory_ref} refer to named
wenzelm@37868
   251
theories from the ancestry of the current context, not any accidental
wenzelm@37868
   252
theory loader state as before.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY, subtle
wenzelm@37868
   253
change in semantics.
wenzelm@37868

wenzelm@38470
   256
*** System ***
wenzelm@38470
   257
wenzelm@38470
   258
* Discontinued support for Poly/ML 5.0 and 5.1 versions.

wenzelm@35260
   265
*** General ***
wenzelm@35260
   266
wenzelm@35436
   267
* Authentic syntax for *all* logical entities (type classes, type
wenzelm@35436
   268
constructors, term constants): provides simple and robust
wenzelm@35436
   269
correspondence between formal entities and concrete syntax.  Within
wenzelm@35436
   270
the parse tree / AST representations, "constants" are decorated by
wenzelm@35436
   271
their category (class, type, const) and spelled out explicitly with
wenzelm@35436
   272
their full internal name.
wenzelm@35436
   273
wenzelm@35436
   274
Substantial INCOMPATIBILITY concerning low-level syntax declarations
wenzelm@35436
   275
and translations (translation rules and translation functions in ML).
wenzelm@35436
   276
Some hints on upgrading:
wenzelm@35260
   277
wenzelm@35260
   278
  - Many existing uses of 'syntax' and 'translations' can be replaced
wenzelm@35436
   279
    by more modern 'type_notation', 'notation' and 'abbreviation',
wenzelm@35436
   280
    which are independent of this issue.
wenzelm@35260
   281
wenzelm@35260
   282
  - 'translations' require markup within the AST; the term syntax
wenzelm@35260
   283
    provides the following special forms:
wenzelm@35260
   284
wenzelm@35260
   285
      CONST c   -- produces syntax version of constant c from context
wenzelm@35261
   286
      XCONST c  -- literally c, checked as constant from context
wenzelm@35261
   287
      c         -- literally c, if declared by 'syntax'
wenzelm@35261
   288
wenzelm@35261
   289
    Plain identifiers are treated as AST variables -- occasionally the
wenzelm@35261
   290
    system indicates accidental variables via the error "rhs contains
wenzelm@35261
   291
    extra variables".
wenzelm@35260
   292
wenzelm@35436
   293
    Type classes and type constructors are marked according to their
wenzelm@35436
   294
    concrete syntax.  Some old translations rules need to be written
wenzelm@35436
   295
    for the "type" category, using type constructor application
wenzelm@35436
   296
    instead of pseudo-term application of the default category
wenzelm@35436
   297
    "logic".
wenzelm@35436
   298
wenzelm@35260
   299
  - 'parse_translation' etc. in ML may use the following
wenzelm@35260
   300
    antiquotations:
wenzelm@35260
   301
wenzelm@35436
   302
      @{class_syntax c}   -- type class c within parse tree / AST
wenzelm@35436
   303
      @{term_syntax c}    -- type constructor c within parse tree / AST
wenzelm@35260
   304
      @{const_syntax c}   -- ML version of "CONST c" above
wenzelm@35260
   305
      @{syntax_const c}   -- literally c (checked wrt. 'syntax' declarations)
wenzelm@35260
   306
wenzelm@35436
   307
  - Literal types within 'typed_print_translations', i.e. those *not*
wenzelm@35436
   308
    represented as pseudo-terms are represented verbatim.  Use @{class
wenzelm@35436
   309
    c} or @{type_name c} here instead of the above syntax
wenzelm@35436
   310
    antiquotations.
wenzelm@35436
   311
wenzelm@35260
   312
Note that old non-authentic syntax was based on unqualified base
wenzelm@35436
   313
names, so all of the above "constant" names would coincide.  Recall
wenzelm@35436
   314
that 'print_syntax' and ML_command "set Syntax.trace_ast" help to
wenzelm@35436
   315
diagnose syntax problems.
wenzelm@35260
   316
wenzelm@35351
   317
* Type constructors admit general mixfix syntax, not just infix.
wenzelm@35351
   318
wenzelm@36508
   319
* Concrete syntax may be attached to local entities without a proof
wenzelm@36508
   320
body, too.  This works via regular mixfix annotations for 'fix',
wenzelm@36508
   321
'def', 'obtain' etc. or via the explicit 'write' command, which is
wenzelm@36508
   322
similar to the 'notation' command in theory specifications.
wenzelm@36508
   323
wenzelm@37351
   324
* Discontinued unnamed infix syntax (legacy feature for many years) --
wenzelm@37351
   325
need to specify constant name and syntax separately.  Internal ML
wenzelm@37351
   326
datatype constructors have been renamed from InfixName to Infix etc.
wenzelm@37351
   327
Minor INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@37351
   328
wenzelm@37351
   329
* Schematic theorem statements need to be explicitly markup as such,
wenzelm@37351
   330
via commands 'schematic_lemma', 'schematic_theorem',
wenzelm@37351
   331
'schematic_corollary'.  Thus the relevance of the proof is made
wenzelm@37351
   332
syntactically clear, which impacts performance in a parallel or
wenzelm@37351
   333
asynchronous interactive environment.  Minor INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@37351
   334
wenzelm@35613
   335
* Use of cumulative prems via "!" in some proof methods has been
wenzelm@37351
   336
discontinued (old legacy feature).
wenzelm@35613
   337
boehmes@35979
   338
* References 'trace_simp' and 'debug_simp' have been replaced by
wenzelm@36857
   339
configuration options stored in the context. Enabling tracing (the
wenzelm@36857
   340
case of debugging is similar) in proofs works via
wenzelm@36857
   341
wenzelm@36857
   342
  using [[trace_simp = true]]
wenzelm@36857
   343
wenzelm@36857
   344
Tracing is then active for all invocations of the simplifier in
wenzelm@36857
   345
subsequent goal refinement steps. Tracing may also still be enabled or
wenzelm@36857
   346
disabled via the ProofGeneral settings menu.
boehmes@35979

wenzelm@36177
   348
* Separate commands 'hide_class', 'hide_type', 'hide_const',
wenzelm@36177
   349
'hide_fact' replace the former 'hide' KIND command.  Minor
wenzelm@36177
   350
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@36177
   351
wenzelm@37298
   352
* Improved parallelism of proof term normalization: usedir -p2 -q0 is
wenzelm@37298
   353
more efficient than combinations with -q1 or -q2.

   357
wenzelm@37351
   358
* Proofterms record type-class reasoning explicitly, using the
wenzelm@37351
   359
"unconstrain" operation internally.  This eliminates all sort
wenzelm@37351
   360
constraints from a theorem and proof, introducing explicit
wenzelm@37351
   361
OFCLASS-premises.  On the proof term level, this operation is
wenzelm@37351
   362
automatically applied at theorem boundaries, such that closed proofs
wenzelm@37351
   363
are always free of sort constraints.  INCOMPATIBILITY for tools that
wenzelm@37351
   364
inspect proof terms.
haftmann@36147
   365
wenzelm@35765
   366
* Local theory specifications may depend on extra type variables that
wenzelm@35765
   367
are not present in the result type -- arguments TYPE('a) :: 'a itself
wenzelm@35765
   368
are added internally.  For example:
wenzelm@35765
   369
wenzelm@35765
   370
  definition unitary :: bool where "unitary = (ALL (x::'a) y. x = y)"
wenzelm@35765
   371
wenzelm@37351
   372
* Predicates of locales introduced by classes carry a mandatory
wenzelm@37351
   373
"class" prefix.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@37351
   374
wenzelm@37351
   375
* Vacuous class specifications observe default sort.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@37351
   376
wenzelm@37351
   377
* Old 'axclass' command has been discontinued.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use
wenzelm@37351
   378
'class' instead.
wenzelm@37351
   379
wenzelm@37351
   380
* Command 'code_reflect' allows to incorporate generated ML code into
wenzelm@37351
   381
runtime environment; replaces immature code_datatype antiquotation.
wenzelm@37351
   382
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@37351
   383
wenzelm@37351

wenzelm@37351
   386
wenzelm@36857
   387
* Code generator: details of internal data cache have no impact on the
wenzelm@36857
   388
user space functionality any longer.
wenzelm@36857
   389
wenzelm@37351
   390
* Methods "unfold_locales" and "intro_locales" ignore non-locale
wenzelm@37351
   391
subgoals.  This is more appropriate for interpretations with 'where'.
wenzelm@36857
   392
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@34170
   393
wenzelm@36356
   394
* Command 'example_proof' opens an empty proof body.  This allows to
wenzelm@36356
   395
experiment with Isar, without producing any persistent result.
wenzelm@36356
   396
wenzelm@35413
   397
* Commands 'type_notation' and 'no_type_notation' declare type syntax
wenzelm@35413
   398
within a local theory context, with explicit checking of the
wenzelm@35413
   399
constructors involved (in contrast to the raw 'syntax' versions).
wenzelm@35413
   400
wenzelm@36178
   401
* Commands 'types' and 'typedecl' now work within a local theory
wenzelm@36178
   402
context -- without introducing dependencies on parameters or
wenzelm@36178
   403
assumptions, which is not possible in Isabelle/Pure.
wenzelm@35681
   404
wenzelm@36857

* Command 'typedef' now works within a local theory context -- without
wenzelm@37351
   412
introducing dependencies on parameters or assumptions, which is not
wenzelm@37351
   413
possible in Isabelle/Pure/HOL.  Note that the logical environment may
wenzelm@37351
   414
contain multiple interpretations of local typedefs (with different
wenzelm@37351
   415
non-emptiness proofs), even in a global theory context.
wenzelm@37351
   416
wenzelm@37351
   417
* New package for quotient types.  Commands 'quotient_type' and
wenzelm@37351
   418
'quotient_definition' may be used for defining types and constants by
wenzelm@37351
   419
quotient constructions.  An example is the type of integers created by
wenzelm@37351
   420
quotienting pairs of natural numbers:
wenzelm@37380
   421
wenzelm@37351
   422
  fun
wenzelm@37380
   423
    intrel :: "(nat * nat) => (nat * nat) => bool"

   425
    "intrel (x, y) (u, v) = (x + v = u + y)"
wenzelm@37351
   426
wenzelm@37380
   427
  quotient_type int = "nat * nat" / intrel
wenzelm@37351

   429
wenzelm@37351
   430
  quotient_definition
wenzelm@37351

    "0::int" is "(0::nat, 0::nat)"
wenzelm@37351
   432
wenzelm@37351
   433
The method "lifting" can be used to lift of theorems from the
wenzelm@37351
   434
underlying "raw" type to the quotient type.  The example
wenzelm@37351
   435
src/HOL/Quotient_Examples/FSet.thy includes such a quotient
wenzelm@37351
   436
construction and provides a reasoning infrastructure for finite sets.
wenzelm@37351
   437
wenzelm@37351
   438
* Renamed Library/Quotient.thy to Library/Quotient_Type.thy to avoid

wenzelm@37351
   440

* Refined field classes:
wenzelm@36857
   588
  - classes division_ring_inverse_zero, field_inverse_zero,
wenzelm@36857
   589
    linordered_field_inverse_zero include rule inverse 0 = 0 --

haftmann@36416
   593
haftmann@36416
   594
* Refined algebra theorem collections:
wenzelm@36857
   595
  - dropped theorem group group_simps, use algebra_simps instead;
wenzelm@36857
   596
  - dropped theorem group ring_simps, use field_simps instead;
wenzelm@36857
   597
  - proper theorem collection field_simps subsumes former theorem
wenzelm@36857
   598
    groups field_eq_simps and field_simps;
wenzelm@36857
   599
  - dropped lemma eq_minus_self_iff which is a duplicate for
wenzelm@36857
   600
    equal_neg_zero.
wenzelm@36857
   601
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@35009

haftmann@36416
   618
replaced by the more convenient lemmas Inf_empty and Sup_empty.
haftmann@36416
   619
Dropped lemmas Inf_insert_simp and Sup_insert_simp, which are subsumed
haftmann@36416
   620
by Inf_insert and Sup_insert.  Lemmas Inf_UNIV and Sup_UNIV replace
haftmann@36416
   621
former Inf_Univ and Sup_Univ.  Lemmas inf_top_right and sup_bot_right
haftmann@36416

wenzelm@36857
   624
* Reorganized theory Multiset: swapped notation of pointwise and
wenzelm@36857
   625
multiset order:
wenzelm@37351
   626
wenzelm@36857
   627
  - pointwise ordering is instance of class order with standard syntax
wenzelm@36857
   628
    <= and <;
wenzelm@36857
   629
  - multiset ordering has syntax <=# and <#; partial order properties
wenzelm@36857
   630
    are provided by means of interpretation with prefix
wenzelm@36857
   631
    multiset_order;
wenzelm@36857
   632
  - less duplication, less historical organization of sections,
wenzelm@36857
   633
    conversion from associations lists to multisets, rudimentary code
wenzelm@36857
   634
    generation;
wenzelm@36857
   635
  - use insert_DiffM2 [symmetric] instead of elem_imp_eq_diff_union,
wenzelm@36857
   636
    if needed.

* Theory Permutation: replaced local "remove" by List.remove1.
nipkow@36903

blanchet@36929
   693
    INCOMPATIBILITY.
blanchet@36929
   694
  - Added user's manual ("isabelle doc sledgehammer").
blanchet@36929
   695
  - Added option syntax and "sledgehammer_params" to customize
blanchet@36929
   696
    Sledgehammer's behavior.  See the manual for details.
blanchet@36929
   697
  - Modified the Isar proof reconstruction code so that it produces
blanchet@36929
   698
    direct proofs rather than proofs by contradiction.  (This feature
blanchet@36929
   699
    is still experimental.)
blanchet@36929
   700
  - Made Isar proof reconstruction work for SPASS, remote ATPs, and in
blanchet@36929
   701
    full-typed mode.
blanchet@36929
   702
  - Added support for TPTP syntax for SPASS via the "spass_tptp" ATP.
blanchet@36929
   703
blanchet@36928
   704
* Nitpick:
blanchet@36928
   705
  - Added and implemented "binary_ints" and "bits" options.
blanchet@36928
   706
  - Added "std" option and implemented support for nonstandard models.
blanchet@36928
   707
  - Added and implemented "finitize" option to improve the precision
blanchet@36928
   708
    of infinite datatypes based on a monotonicity analysis.
blanchet@36928
   709
  - Added support for quotient types.
blanchet@36928
   710
  - Added support for "specification" and "ax_specification"
blanchet@36928
   711
    constructs.
blanchet@36928
   712
  - Added support for local definitions (for "function" and
blanchet@36928
   713
    "termination" proofs).
blanchet@36928
   714
  - Added support for term postprocessors.
blanchet@36928
   715
  - Optimized "Multiset.multiset" and "FinFun.finfun".
blanchet@36928
   716
  - Improved efficiency of "destroy_constrs" optimization.
blanchet@36928
   717
  - Fixed soundness bugs related to "destroy_constrs" optimization and
blanchet@36928
   718
    record getters.
blanchet@37272
   719
  - Fixed soundness bug related to higher-order constructors.
blanchet@37272
   720
  - Fixed soundness bug when "full_descrs" is enabled.
blanchet@36928
   721
  - Improved precision of set constructs.
blanchet@37260
   722
  - Added "atoms" option.
blanchet@36928
   723
  - Added cache to speed up repeated Kodkod invocations on the same
blanchet@36928
   724
    problems.
blanchet@36928
   725
  - Renamed "MiniSatJNI", "zChaffJNI", "BerkMinAlloy", and
blanchet@36928
   726
    "SAT4JLight" to "MiniSat_JNI", "zChaff_JNI", "BerkMin_Alloy", and
blanchet@36928
   727
    "SAT4J_Light".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
blanchet@36928
   728
  - Removed "skolemize", "uncurry", "sym_break", "flatten_prop",
blanchet@36928
   729
    "sharing_depth", and "show_skolems" options.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
blanchet@37264

* Method "induct" now takes instantiations of the form t, where t is not
berghofe@37361
   733
  a variable, as a shorthand for "x == t", where x is a fresh variable.
berghofe@37361
   734
  If this is not intended, t has to be enclosed in parentheses.
berghofe@37361
   735
  By default, the equalities generated by definitional instantiations
berghofe@37361
   736
  are pre-simplified, which may cause parameters of inductive cases
berghofe@37361
   737
  to disappear, or may even delete some of the inductive cases.
berghofe@37361
   738
  Use "induct (no_simp)" instead of "induct" to restore the old
berghofe@37361
   739
  behaviour. The (no_simp) option is also understood by the "cases"
berghofe@37361
   740
  and "nominal_induct" methods, which now perform pre-simplification, too.
berghofe@37361

* Variable names in lemmas generated by the domain package have
huffman@36828

huffman@36828

huffman@36828
   750
* The domain package no longer defines the function "foo_copy" for
huffman@36828

recursive domain "foo".  The reach lemma is now stated directly in
huffman@36828
   752
terms of "foo_take".  Lemmas and proofs that mention "foo_copy" must
huffman@36828

be reformulated in terms of "foo_take", INCOMPATIBILITY.
huffman@36828

of the form "x ~= UU ==> foo$x ~= UU") now have an if-and-only-if form
huffman@36828

wenzelm@37351
   803
wenzelm@37351
   804
    @{class NAME}         -- type class
wenzelm@37351

wenzelm@37351
   815
wenzelm@37351
   816
* Antiquotation @{syntax_const NAME} ensures that NAME refers to a raw
wenzelm@37351
   817
syntax constant (cf. 'syntax' command).
wenzelm@37351
   818
wenzelm@37351
   819
* Antiquotation @{make_string} inlines a function to print arbitrary
wenzelm@37351
   820
values similar to the ML toplevel.  The result is compiler dependent
wenzelm@37351
   821
and may fall back on "?" in certain situations.
wenzelm@37351
   822
wenzelm@37351
   823
* Diagnostic commands 'ML_val' and 'ML_command' may refer to
wenzelm@37351
   824
antiquotations @{Isar.state} and @{Isar.goal}.  This replaces impure
wenzelm@37351
   825
Isar.state() and Isar.goal(), which belong to the old TTY loop and do
wenzelm@37351
   826
not work with the asynchronous Isar document model.
wenzelm@37351
   827
wenzelm@37351
   828
* Configuration options now admit dynamic default values, depending on
wenzelm@37351
   829
the context or even global references.
wenzelm@37351
   830
wenzelm@37351

* SHA1.digest digests strings according to SHA-1 (see RFC 3174).  It
wenzelm@37351
   832
uses an efficient external library if available (for Poly/ML).
wenzelm@37351
   833
wenzelm@37144
   834
* Renamed some important ML structures, while keeping the old names
wenzelm@37144
   835
for some time as aliases within the structure Legacy:

wenzelm@37144
   848
Note that "open Legacy" simplifies porting of sources, but forgetting
wenzelm@37144
   849
to remove it again will complicate porting again in the future.
wenzelm@37144
   850
wenzelm@37144
   851
* Most operations that refer to a global context are named
wenzelm@37144
   852
accordingly, e.g. Simplifier.global_context or
wenzelm@37144
   853
ProofContext.init_global.  There are some situations where a global
wenzelm@37144
   854
context actually works, but under normal circumstances one needs to
wenzelm@37144
   855
pass the proper local context through the code!
wenzelm@37144
   856
wenzelm@37144
   857
* Discontinued old TheoryDataFun with its copy/init operation -- data
wenzelm@37144
   858
needs to be pure.  Functor Theory_Data_PP retains the traditional
wenzelm@37144
   859
Pretty.pp argument to merge, which is absent in the standard
wenzelm@37144
   860
Theory_Data version.
wenzelm@36429
   861
wenzelm@37144
   862
* Sorts.certify_sort and derived "cert" operations for types and terms
wenzelm@37144
   863
no longer minimize sorts.  Thus certification at the boundary of the
wenzelm@37144
   864
inference kernel becomes invariant under addition of class relations,
wenzelm@37144
   865
which is an important monotonicity principle.  Sorts are now minimized
wenzelm@37144
   866
in the syntax layer only, at the boundary between the end-user and the
wenzelm@37144
   867
system.  Subtle INCOMPATIBILITY, may have to use Sign.minimize_sort
wenzelm@37144
   868
explicitly in rare situations.
wenzelm@37144
   869
wenzelm@35021
   870
* Renamed old-style Drule.standard to Drule.export_without_context, to
wenzelm@35021
   871
emphasize that this is in no way a standard operation.
wenzelm@35021
   872
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@35021
   873
wenzelm@34076
   874
* Subgoal.FOCUS (and variants): resulting goal state is normalized as
wenzelm@34076
   875
usual for resolution.  Rare INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@34076
   876
wenzelm@35845
   877
* Renamed varify/unvarify operations to varify_global/unvarify_global
wenzelm@35845
   878
to emphasize that these only work in a global situation (which is
wenzelm@35845
   879
quite rare).
wenzelm@35845
   880
wenzelm@37144
   881
* Curried take and drop in library.ML; negative length is interpreted
wenzelm@37144
   882
as infinity (as in chop).  Subtle INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@36961
   883
wenzelm@37351
   884
* Proof terms: type substitutions on proof constants now use canonical
wenzelm@37351
   885
order of type variables.  INCOMPATIBILITY for tools working with proof
wenzelm@37351
   886
terms.
wenzelm@37351
   887
wenzelm@37351
   888
* Raw axioms/defs may no longer carry sort constraints, and raw defs
wenzelm@37351
   889
may no longer carry premises.  User-level specifications are
wenzelm@37351

transformed accordingly by Thm.add_axiom/add_def.

ISABELLE_PLATFORM setting variable, which defaults to the 32 bit
wenzelm@36201
   905
variant, even on a 64 bit machine.  The following example setting
wenzelm@36201
   906
prefers 64 bit if available:
wenzelm@36201

* New proof method "smt" for a combination of first-order logic with
wenzelm@33842
   961
equality, linear and nonlinear (natural/integer/real) arithmetic, and
wenzelm@33842
   962
fixed-size bitvectors; there is also basic support for higher-order
wenzelm@33842
   963
features (esp. lambda abstractions).  It is an incomplete decision
wenzelm@33842
   964
procedure based on external SMT solvers using the oracle mechanism;
wenzelm@33842
   965
for the SMT solver Z3, this method is proof-producing.  Certificates
wenzelm@33842
   966
are provided to avoid calling the external solvers solely for
wenzelm@33842
   967
re-checking proofs.  Due to a remote SMT service there is no need for
wenzelm@33842
   968
installing SMT solvers locally.  See src/HOL/SMT.
wenzelm@33842
   969
wenzelm@33842

default generators are provided for all suitable HOL types, records

Library/SML_Quickcheck.
haftmann@33860
   987
wenzelm@33843
   988
* New testing tool Mirabelle for automated proof tools.  Applies
wenzelm@33843
   989
several tools and tactics like sledgehammer, metis, or quickcheck, to
wenzelm@33843
   990
every proof step in a theory.  To be used in batch mode via the

   991
"mirabelle" utility.
wenzelm@33843
   992
wenzelm@33843
   993
* New proof method "sos" (sum of squares) for nonlinear real
wenzelm@33843
   994
arithmetic (originally due to John Harison). It requires theory
wenzelm@33843
   995
Library/Sum_Of_Squares.  It is not a complete decision procedure but
wenzelm@33843
   996
works well in practice on quantifier-free real arithmetic with +, -,
wenzelm@33843
   997
*, ^, =, <= and <, i.e. boolean combinations of equalities and
wenzelm@33843
   998
inequalities between polynomials.  It makes use of external
wenzelm@33843
   999
semidefinite programming solvers.  Method "sos" generates a
wenzelm@33843
  1000
certificate that can be pasted into the proof thus avoiding the need
wenzelm@33843
  1001
to call an external tool every time the proof is checked.  See
wenzelm@33843
  1002
src/HOL/Library/Sum_Of_Squares.

* New command 'atp_minimal' reduces result produced by Sledgehammer.
wenzelm@33843
  1008
wenzelm@33843
  1009
* New Sledgehammer option "Full Types" in Proof General settings menu.
wenzelm@33843
  1010
Causes full type information to be output to the ATPs.  This slows
wenzelm@33843
  1011
ATPs down considerably but eliminates a source of unsound "proofs"
wenzelm@33843
  1012
that fail later.
wenzelm@33843
  1013
wenzelm@33843
  1014
* New method "metisFT": A version of metis that uses full type
wenzelm@33843
  1015
information in order to avoid failures of proof reconstruction.
wenzelm@33843
  1016
wenzelm@33843
  1017
* New evaluator "approximate" approximates an real valued term using
wenzelm@33843
  1018
the same method as the approximation method.
wenzelm@33843
  1019
wenzelm@33843
  1020
* Method "approximate" now supports arithmetic expressions as

* Theory GCD includes functions Gcd/GCD and Lcm/LCM for the gcd and
wenzelm@33873

div_mult_mult1; theorems div_mult_mult1, div_mult_mult2,
haftmann@32600
  1052
div_mult_mult1_if, div_mult_mult1 and div_mult_mult2 have been
haftmann@32600
  1053
generalized to class semiring_div, subsuming former theorems
haftmann@32600
  1054
zdiv_zmult_zmult1, zdiv_zmult_zmult1_if, zdiv_zmult_zmult1 and
haftmann@32600

* Refinements to lattice classes and sets:
haftmann@32064
  1059
  - less default intro/elim rules in locale variant, more default
haftmann@32064
  1060
    intro/elim rules in class variant: more uniformity
wenzelm@33842
  1061
  - lemma ge_sup_conv renamed to le_sup_iff, in accordance with
wenzelm@33842
  1062
    le_inf_iff
wenzelm@33842

    sup_aci)
haftmann@32064
  1065
  - renamed ACI to inf_sup_aci
haftmann@32600
  1066
  - new class "boolean_algebra"
wenzelm@33842
  1067
  - class "complete_lattice" moved to separate theory
haftmann@33860
  1068
    "Complete_Lattice"; corresponding constants (and abbreviations)

INCOMPATIBILITY.  Care is required when theorems Int_subset_iff or
wenzelm@33842
  1093
Un_subset_iff are explicitly deleted as default simp rules; then also
wenzelm@33842
  1094
their lattice counterparts le_inf_iff and le_sup_iff have to be
haftmann@32691
  1095
deleted to achieve the desired effect.
haftmann@32064
  1096
wenzelm@33842
  1097
* Rules inf_absorb1, inf_absorb2, sup_absorb1, sup_absorb2 are no simp
wenzelm@33842
  1098
rules by default any longer; the same applies to min_max.inf_absorb1
wenzelm@33842

etc.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@33842
  1100
wenzelm@33842

wenzelm@33842
  1104
* Power operations on relations and functions are now one dedicated
haftmann@32706
  1105
constant "compow" with infix syntax "^^".  Power operation on
wenzelm@31547
  1106
multiplicative monoids retains syntax "^" and is now defined generic

  1107
in class power.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@31547
  1108
wenzelm@33842

* Relation composition "R O S" now has a more standard argument order:
wenzelm@33842
  1110
"R O S = {(x, z). EX y. (x, y) : R & (y, z) : S}".  INCOMPATIBILITY,
wenzelm@33842

rewrite propositions with "S O R" --> "R O S". Proofs may occasionally
wenzelm@33842
  1112
break, since the O_assoc rule was not rewritten like this.  Fix using

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

* Function "Inv" is renamed to "inv_into" and function "inv" is now an
wenzelm@33842
  1116

  1122
* Changed "DERIV_intros" to a dynamic fact, which can be augmented by
wenzelm@33842
  1123
the attribute of the same name.  Each of the theorems in the list
wenzelm@33842
  1124
DERIV_intros assumes composition with an additional function and
wenzelm@33842
  1125
matches a variable to the derivative, which has to be solved by the
wenzelm@33842
  1126
Simplifier.  Hence (auto intro!: DERIV_intros) computes the derivative
wenzelm@33873
  1127
of most elementary terms.  Former Maclauren.DERIV_tac and
wenzelm@33873
  1128
Maclauren.deriv_tac should be replaced by (auto intro!: DERIV_intros).

    code_unfold     replaces    code unfold
haftmann@33860
  1133
    code_post       replaces    code post

  1143
INCOMPATIBILITY, use "undefined" directly.
wenzelm@33843
  1144
haftmann@33860

  1162
* Theory Representable defines a class "rep" of domains that are
wenzelm@33842
  1163
representable (via an ep-pair) in the universal domain type "udom".
huffman@33825
  1164
Instances are provided for all type constructors defined in HOLCF.
huffman@33825
  1165
huffman@33825
  1166
* The 'new_domain' command is a purely definitional version of the
huffman@33825
  1167
domain package, for representable domains.  Syntax is identical to the
huffman@33825
  1168
old domain package.  The 'new_domain' package also supports indirect
huffman@33825
  1169
recursion using previously-defined type constructors.  See
wenzelm@33842
  1170
src/HOLCF/ex/New_Domain.thy for examples.
wenzelm@33842
  1171
wenzelm@33842
  1172
* Method "fixrec_simp" unfolds one step of a fixrec-defined constant
huffman@33825
  1173
on the left-hand side of an equation, and then performs
huffman@33825
  1174
simplification.  Rewriting is done using rules declared with the
wenzelm@33842
  1175
"fixrec_simp" attribute.  The "fixrec_simp" method is intended as a
wenzelm@33842
  1176
replacement for "fixpat"; see src/HOLCF/ex/Fixrec_ex.thy for examples.
huffman@33825
  1177
huffman@33825
  1178
* The pattern-match compiler in 'fixrec' can now handle constructors
huffman@33825
  1179
with HOL function types.  Pattern-match combinators for the Pair
huffman@33825
  1180
constructor are pre-configured.
huffman@33825
  1181
huffman@33825
  1182
* The 'fixrec' package now produces better fixed-point induction rules
huffman@33825
  1183
for mutually-recursive definitions:  Induction rules have conclusions
huffman@33825
  1184
of the form "P foo bar" instead of "P <foo, bar>".
huffman@33825
  1185
huffman@33825
  1186
* The constant "sq_le" (with infix syntax "<<" or "\<sqsubseteq>") has
huffman@33825
  1187
been renamed to "below".  The name "below" now replaces "less" in many
wenzelm@33842
  1188
theorem names.  (Legacy theorem names using "less" are still supported
wenzelm@33842
  1189
as well.)
huffman@33825
  1190
huffman@33825
  1191
* The 'fixrec' package now supports "bottom patterns".  Bottom
huffman@33825
  1192
patterns can be used to generate strictness rules, or to make
huffman@33825
  1193
functions more strict (much like the bang-patterns supported by the
wenzelm@33873
  1194
Glasgow Haskell Compiler).  See src/HOLCF/ex/Fixrec_ex.thy for
wenzelm@33873
  1195

wenzelm@33843
  1201
errors and run-time exceptions, including detailed source positions.
wenzelm@33843
  1202
wenzelm@33843
  1203
* Structure Name_Space (formerly NameSpace) now manages uniquely
wenzelm@33843
  1204
identified entries, with some additional information such as source
wenzelm@33843
  1205
position, logical grouping etc.
wenzelm@33843
  1206
wenzelm@33524
  1207
* Theory and context data is now introduced by the simplified and
wenzelm@33524
  1208
modernized functors Theory_Data, Proof_Data, Generic_Data.  Data needs
wenzelm@33524
  1209
to be pure, but the old TheoryDataFun for mutable data (with explicit
wenzelm@33524
  1210
copy operation) is still available for some time.
wenzelm@33524
  1211
wenzelm@32742
  1212
* Structure Synchronized (cf. src/Pure/Concurrent/synchronized.ML)
wenzelm@32742
  1213
provides a high-level programming interface to synchronized state
wenzelm@32742
  1214
variables with atomic update.  This works via pure function
wenzelm@32742
  1215
application within a critical section -- its runtime should be as
wenzelm@32742
  1216
short as possible; beware of deadlocks if critical code is nested,
wenzelm@32742
  1217
either directly or indirectly via other synchronized variables!
wenzelm@32742
  1218
wenzelm@32742
  1219
* Structure Unsynchronized (cf. src/Pure/ML-Systems/unsynchronized.ML)
wenzelm@32742
  1220
wraps raw ML references, explicitly indicating their non-thread-safe
wenzelm@32742
  1221
behaviour.  The Isar toplevel keeps this structure open, to
wenzelm@32742
  1222
accommodate Proof General as well as quick and dirty interactive
wenzelm@32742
  1223
experiments with references.
wenzelm@32742
  1224
wenzelm@32365
  1225
* PARALLEL_CHOICE and PARALLEL_GOALS provide basic support for
wenzelm@32365
  1226
parallel tactical reasoning.
wenzelm@32365
  1227
wenzelm@32427
  1228
* Tacticals Subgoal.FOCUS, Subgoal.FOCUS_PREMS, Subgoal.FOCUS_PARAMS
wenzelm@32427
  1229
are similar to SUBPROOF, but are slightly more flexible: only the
wenzelm@32427
  1230
specified parts of the subgoal are imported into the context, and the
wenzelm@32427
  1231
body tactic may introduce new subgoals and schematic variables.
wenzelm@32427
  1232
wenzelm@32427
  1233
* Old tactical METAHYPS, which does not observe the proof context, has
wenzelm@32427
  1234
been renamed to Old_Goals.METAHYPS and awaits deletion.  Use SUBPROOF
wenzelm@32427
  1235
or Subgoal.FOCUS etc.
wenzelm@32216
  1236
wenzelm@31971
  1237
* Renamed functor TableFun to Table, and GraphFun to Graph.  (Since
wenzelm@31971
  1238
functors have their own ML name space there is no point to mark them
wenzelm@31971
  1239
separately.)  Minor INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@31971
  1240
wenzelm@31901

  1247
mode, which avoids critical setmp.
wenzelm@33843
  1248
wenzelm@31306
  1249
* Eliminated old Attrib.add_attributes, Method.add_methods and related
wenzelm@33842
  1250
combinators for "args".  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to use simplified
wenzelm@31306
  1251
Attrib/Method.setup introduced in Isabelle2009.
wenzelm@31304
  1252
wenzelm@32151
  1253
* Proper context for simpset_of, claset_of, clasimpset_of.  May fall

  1255
last resort.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@32151
  1256
wenzelm@32092
  1257
* Display.pretty_thm now requires a proper context (cf. former
wenzelm@32092
  1258
ProofContext.pretty_thm).  May fall back on Display.pretty_thm_global
wenzelm@32092
  1259

IsaMakefile, not just hardwired "logics".
wenzelm@32326
  1278
wenzelm@33842

interface tool configuration is now more explicit, see also the
wenzelm@28915
  1314
Isabelle system manual.  In particular, Proof General is now available
wenzelm@28915
  1315
via "isabelle emacs".
wenzelm@28504
  1316
wenzelm@28504
  1317
INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt derivative scripts.  Users may need to
wenzelm@28504
  1318
purge installed copies of Isabelle executables and re-run "isabelle
wenzelm@28504
  1319
install -p ...", or use symlinks.
wenzelm@28504
  1320
wenzelm@28914
  1321
* The default for ISABELLE_HOME_USER is now ~/.isabelle instead of the
wenzelm@30845
  1322
old ~/isabelle, which was slightly non-standard and apt to cause
wenzelm@30845
  1323
surprises on case-insensitive file-systems (such as Mac OS).
wenzelm@28914
  1324
wenzelm@28914
  1325
INCOMPATIBILITY, need to move existing ~/isabelle/etc,
wenzelm@28914
  1326
~/isabelle/heaps, ~/isabelle/browser_info to the new place.  Special
wenzelm@28914
  1327
care is required when using older releases of Isabelle.  Note that
wenzelm@28914
  1328
ISABELLE_HOME_USER can be changed in Isabelle/etc/settings of any
wenzelm@30845
  1329
Isabelle distribution, in order to use the new ~/.isabelle uniformly.
wenzelm@28914
  1330
wenzelm@29161
  1331
* Proofs of fully specified statements are run in parallel on
wenzelm@30845
  1332
multi-core systems.  A speedup factor of 2.5 to 3.2 can be expected on
wenzelm@30845
  1333
a regular 4-core machine, if the initial heap space is made reasonably
wenzelm@30845
  1334
large (cf. Poly/ML option -H).  (Requires Poly/ML 5.2.1 or later.)
wenzelm@30845
  1335
wenzelm@30845
  1336
* The main reference manuals ("isar-ref", "implementation", and
wenzelm@30845
  1337
"system") have been updated and extended.  Formally checked references
wenzelm@30845
  1338
as hyperlinks are now available uniformly.

*** Pure ***
wenzelm@27599
  1342
wenzelm@30845
  1343
* Complete re-implementation of locales.  INCOMPATIBILITY in several
wenzelm@30845
  1344
respects.  The most important changes are listed below.  See the
wenzelm@30845
  1345
Tutorial on Locales ("locales" manual) for details.
ballarin@29253
  1346
ballarin@29253
  1347
- In locale expressions, instantiation replaces renaming.  Parameters
ballarin@29253
  1348
must be declared in a for clause.  To aid compatibility with previous
ballarin@29253
  1349
parameter inheritance, in locale declarations, parameters that are not
ballarin@29253
  1350
'touched' (instantiation position "_" or omitted) are implicitly added
ballarin@29253
  1351
with their syntax at the beginning of the for clause.
ballarin@29253
  1352
ballarin@29253
  1353
- Syntax from abbreviations and definitions in locales is available in
ballarin@29253
  1354
locale expressions and context elements.  The latter is particularly
ballarin@29253
  1355
useful in locale declarations.
ballarin@29253
  1356
ballarin@29253
  1357
- More flexible mechanisms to qualify names generated by locale
ballarin@29253
  1358
expressions.  Qualifiers (prefixes) may be specified in locale
wenzelm@30728
  1359
expressions, and can be marked as mandatory (syntax: "name!:") or
wenzelm@30728
  1360
optional (syntax "name?:").  The default depends for plain "name:"
wenzelm@30728
  1361
depends on the situation where a locale expression is used: in
wenzelm@30728
  1362
commands 'locale' and 'sublocale' prefixes are optional, in
wenzelm@30845
  1363
'interpretation' and 'interpret' prefixes are mandatory.  The old
wenzelm@30728
  1364
implicit qualifiers derived from the parameter names of a locale are
wenzelm@30728
  1365
no longer generated.
wenzelm@30106
  1366
wenzelm@30845
  1367
- Command "sublocale l < e" replaces "interpretation l < e".  The
wenzelm@30106
  1368
instantiation clause in "interpretation" and "interpret" (square
wenzelm@30106
  1369
brackets) is no longer available.  Use locale expressions.
ballarin@29253
  1370
wenzelm@30845
  1371
- When converting proof scripts, mandatory qualifiers in
wenzelm@30728
  1372
'interpretation' and 'interpret' should be retained by default, even
wenzelm@30845
  1373
if this is an INCOMPATIBILITY compared to former behavior.  In the
wenzelm@30845
  1374
worst case, use the "name?:" form for non-mandatory ones.  Qualifiers
wenzelm@30845
  1375
in locale expressions range over a single locale instance only.
wenzelm@30845
  1376
wenzelm@30845
  1377
- Dropped locale element "includes".  This is a major INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
  1378
In existing theorem specifications replace the includes element by the
wenzelm@30845
  1379
respective context elements of the included locale, omitting those
wenzelm@30845
  1380
that are already present in the theorem specification.  Multiple
wenzelm@30845
  1381
assume elements of a locale should be replaced by a single one
wenzelm@30845
  1382
involving the locale predicate.  In the proof body, declarations (most
wenzelm@30845
  1383
notably theorems) may be regained by interpreting the respective
wenzelm@30845
  1384
locales in the proof context as required (command "interpret").
wenzelm@30845
  1385
wenzelm@30845
  1386
If using "includes" in replacement of a target solely because the
wenzelm@30845
  1387
parameter types in the theorem are not as general as in the target,
wenzelm@30845
  1388
consider declaring a new locale with additional type constraints on
wenzelm@30845
  1389
the parameters (context element "constrains").
wenzelm@30845
  1390
wenzelm@30845
  1391
- Discontinued "locale (open)".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
  1392
wenzelm@30845
  1393
- Locale interpretation commands no longer attempt to simplify goal.
wenzelm@30845
  1394
INCOMPATIBILITY: in rare situations the generated goal differs.  Use
wenzelm@30845
  1395
methods intro_locales and unfold_locales to clarify.
wenzelm@30845
  1396
wenzelm@30845
  1397
- Locale interpretation commands no longer accept interpretation
wenzelm@30845
  1398
attributes.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
  1399
wenzelm@30845
  1400
* Class declaration: so-called "base sort" must not be given in import
wenzelm@30845
  1401
list any longer, but is inferred from the specification.  Particularly
wenzelm@30845
  1402
in HOL, write
wenzelm@30845
  1403
wenzelm@30845
  1404
    class foo = ...
wenzelm@30845
  1405
wenzelm@30845
  1406
instead of
wenzelm@30845
  1407
wenzelm@30845
  1408
    class foo = type + ...
wenzelm@30845
  1409
wenzelm@30845
  1410
* Class target: global versions of theorems stemming do not carry a
wenzelm@30845
  1411
parameter prefix any longer.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
  1412
wenzelm@30845
  1413
* Class 'instance' command no longer accepts attached definitions.
wenzelm@30845
  1414
INCOMPATIBILITY, use proper 'instantiation' target instead.
wenzelm@30845
  1415
wenzelm@30845
  1416
* Recovered hiding of consts, which was accidentally broken in
wenzelm@30845
  1417
Isabelle2007.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY, ``hide const c'' really
wenzelm@30845
  1418
makes c inaccessible; consider using ``hide (open) const c'' instead.
wenzelm@30845
  1419
wenzelm@30845
  1420
* Slightly more coherent Pure syntax, with updated documentation in
wenzelm@30845
  1421
isar-ref manual.  Removed locales meta_term_syntax and
wenzelm@30845
  1422
meta_conjunction_syntax: TERM and &&& (formerly &&) are now permanent,
wenzelm@30845
  1423
INCOMPATIBILITY in rare situations.  Note that &&& should not be used
wenzelm@30845
  1424
directly in regular applications.
wenzelm@30845
  1425
wenzelm@30845
  1426
* There is a new syntactic category "float_const" for signed decimal
wenzelm@30845
  1427
fractions (e.g. 123.45 or -123.45).
wenzelm@30845
  1428
wenzelm@30845
  1429
* Removed exotic 'token_translation' command.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use ML
wenzelm@30845
  1430
interface with 'setup' command instead.
wenzelm@30845
  1431
wenzelm@30845
  1432
* Command 'local_setup' is similar to 'setup', but operates on a local
wenzelm@30845
  1433
theory context.
haftmann@27104
  1434
wenzelm@28114
  1435
* The 'axiomatization' command now only works within a global theory
wenzelm@28114
  1436
context.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@28114
  1437
wenzelm@30845
  1438
* Goal-directed proof now enforces strict proof irrelevance wrt. sort
wenzelm@30845
  1439
hypotheses.  Sorts required in the course of reasoning need to be
wenzelm@30845
  1440
covered by the constraints in the initial statement, completed by the
wenzelm@30845
  1441
type instance information of the background theory.  Non-trivial sort
wenzelm@30845
  1442
hypotheses, which rarely occur in practice, may be specified via
wenzelm@30845
  1443
vacuous propositions of the form SORT_CONSTRAINT('a::c).  For example:
wenzelm@30845
  1444
wenzelm@30845
  1445
  lemma assumes "SORT_CONSTRAINT('a::empty)" shows False ...
wenzelm@30845
  1446
wenzelm@30845
  1447
The result contains an implicit sort hypotheses as before --
wenzelm@30845
  1448
SORT_CONSTRAINT premises are eliminated as part of the canonical rule
wenzelm@30845
  1449
normalization.
wenzelm@30845
  1450
wenzelm@30845
  1451
* Generalized Isar history, with support for linear undo, direct state
wenzelm@30845
  1452
addressing etc.
wenzelm@30845
  1453
wenzelm@30845
  1454
* Changed defaults for unify configuration options:
wenzelm@30845
  1455
wenzelm@30845
  1456
  unify_trace_bound = 50 (formerly 25)
wenzelm@30845
  1457
  unify_search_bound = 60 (formerly 30)
wenzelm@30845
  1458
wenzelm@30845
  1459
* Different bookkeeping for code equations (INCOMPATIBILITY):
wenzelm@30845
  1460
wenzelm@30845
  1461
  a) On theory merge, the last set of code equations for a particular
wenzelm@30845
  1462
     constant is taken (in accordance with the policy applied by other
wenzelm@30845
  1463
     parts of the code generator framework).
wenzelm@30845
  1464
wenzelm@30845
  1465
  b) Code equations stemming from explicit declarations (e.g. code
wenzelm@30845
  1466
     attribute) gain priority over default code equations stemming
wenzelm@30845
  1467
     from definition, primrec, fun etc.
wenzelm@30845
  1468
wenzelm@30845
  1469
* Keyword 'code_exception' now named 'code_abort'.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
  1470
haftmann@30965
  1471
* Unified theorem tables for both code generators.  Thus [code
wenzelm@30845
  1472
func] has disappeared and only [code] remains.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30577
  1473
wenzelm@30577
  1474
* Command 'find_consts' searches for constants based on type and name
wenzelm@30577
  1475
patterns, e.g.
kleing@29883
  1476
kleing@29883
  1477
    find_consts "_ => bool"
kleing@29883
  1478
wenzelm@30106
  1479
By default, matching is against subtypes, but it may be restricted to
wenzelm@30728
  1480
the whole type.  Searching by name is possible.  Multiple queries are
wenzelm@30106
  1481
conjunctive and queries may be negated by prefixing them with a
wenzelm@30106
  1482
hyphen:
kleing@29883
  1483
kleing@29883
  1484
    find_consts strict: "_ => bool" name: "Int" -"int => int"
kleing@29861
  1485
wenzelm@30845
  1486
* New 'find_theorems' criterion "solves" matches theorems that
wenzelm@30845
  1487
directly solve the current goal (modulo higher-order unification).
wenzelm@30845
  1488
wenzelm@30845
  1489
* Auto solve feature for main theorem statements: whenever a new goal
wenzelm@30845
  1490
is stated, "find_theorems solves" is called; any theorems that could
wenzelm@30845
  1491
solve the lemma directly are listed as part of the goal state.
wenzelm@30845
  1492
Cf. associated options in Proof General Isabelle settings menu,
wenzelm@30845
  1493
enabled by default, with reasonable timeout for pathological cases of
wenzelm@30845
  1494
higher-order unification.

*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@27381
  1498
wenzelm@27381
  1499
* Antiquotation @{lemma} now imitates a regular terminal proof,
wenzelm@27392
  1500
demanding keyword 'by' and supporting the full method expression
wenzelm@27519
  1501
syntax just like the Isar command 'by'.

*** HOL ***
haftmann@27104
  1505
wenzelm@30845
  1506
* Integrated main parts of former image HOL-Complex with HOL.  Entry
wenzelm@30845
  1507
points Main and Complex_Main remain as before.
wenzelm@30845
  1508
wenzelm@30845
  1509
* Logic image HOL-Plain provides a minimal HOL with the most important
wenzelm@30845
  1510
tools available (inductive, datatype, primrec, ...).  This facilitates
wenzelm@30845
  1511
experimentation and tool development.  Note that user applications
wenzelm@30845
  1512
(and library theories) should never refer to anything below theory
wenzelm@30845
  1513
Main, as before.
wenzelm@30845
  1514
wenzelm@30845
  1515
* Logic image HOL-Main stops at theory Main, and thus facilitates
wenzelm@30845
  1516
experimentation due to shorter build times.
wenzelm@30845
  1517
wenzelm@30845
  1518
* Logic image HOL-NSA contains theories of nonstandard analysis which
wenzelm@30845
  1519
were previously part of former HOL-Complex.  Entry point Hyperreal
wenzelm@30845
  1520
remains valid, but theories formerly using Complex_Main should now use
wenzelm@30845
  1521
new entry point Hypercomplex.
wenzelm@30845
  1522
wenzelm@30845
  1523
* Generic ATP manager for Sledgehammer, based on ML threads instead of
wenzelm@30845
  1524
Posix processes.  Avoids potentially expensive forking of the ML
wenzelm@30845
  1525
process.  New thread-based implementation also works on non-Unix
wenzelm@30845
  1526
platforms (Cygwin).  Provers are no longer hardwired, but defined
wenzelm@30845
  1527
within the theory via plain ML wrapper functions.  Basic Sledgehammer
wenzelm@30845
  1528
commands are covered in the isar-ref manual.
wenzelm@30845
  1529
wenzelm@30845
  1530
* Wrapper scripts for remote SystemOnTPTP service allows to use
wenzelm@30845
  1531
sledgehammer without local ATP installation (Vampire etc.). Other
wenzelm@30845
  1532
provers may be included via suitable ML wrappers, see also
wenzelm@30845
  1533
src/HOL/ATP_Linkup.thy.
wenzelm@30845
  1534
wenzelm@30845
  1535
* ATP selection (E/Vampire/Spass) is now via Proof General's settings
wenzelm@30845
  1536
menu.
wenzelm@30845
  1537
wenzelm@30845
  1538
* The metis method no longer fails because the theorem is too trivial
wenzelm@30845
  1539
(contains the empty clause).
wenzelm@30845
  1540
wenzelm@30845
  1541
* The metis method now fails in the usual manner, rather than raising
wenzelm@30845
  1542
an exception, if it determines that it cannot prove the theorem.
wenzelm@30845
  1543
wenzelm@30845
  1544
* Method "coherent" implements a prover for coherent logic (see also
wenzelm@30845
  1545
src/Tools/coherent.ML).
wenzelm@30845
  1546
wenzelm@30845
  1547
* Constants "undefined" and "default" replace "arbitrary".  Usually
wenzelm@30845
  1548
"undefined" is the right choice to replace "arbitrary", though
wenzelm@30845
  1549
logically there is no difference.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
  1550
wenzelm@30845
  1551
* Command "value" now integrates different evaluation mechanisms.  The
wenzelm@30845
  1552
result of the first successful evaluation mechanism is printed.  In
wenzelm@30845
  1553
square brackets a particular named evaluation mechanisms may be
wenzelm@30845
  1554
specified (currently, [SML], [code] or [nbe]).  See further
wenzelm@30845
  1555
src/HOL/ex/Eval_Examples.thy.
wenzelm@30845
  1556
wenzelm@30845
  1557
* Normalization by evaluation now allows non-leftlinear equations.
wenzelm@30845
  1558
Declare with attribute [code nbe].
wenzelm@30845
  1559
wenzelm@30845
  1560
* Methods "case_tac" and "induct_tac" now refer to the very same rules
wenzelm@30845
  1561
as the structured Isar versions "cases" and "induct", cf. the
wenzelm@30845
  1562
corresponding "cases" and "induct" attributes.  Mutual induction rules
wenzelm@30845
  1563
are now presented as a list of individual projections
wenzelm@30845
  1564
(e.g. foo_bar.inducts for types foo and bar); the old format with
wenzelm@30845
  1565
explicit HOL conjunction is no longer supported.  INCOMPATIBILITY, in
wenzelm@30845
  1566
rare situations a different rule is selected --- notably nested tuple
wenzelm@30845
  1567
elimination instead of former prod.exhaust: use explicit (case_tac t
wenzelm@30845
  1568
rule: prod.exhaust) here.
wenzelm@30845
  1569
wenzelm@30845
  1570
* Attributes "cases", "induct", "coinduct" support "del" option.
wenzelm@30845
  1571
wenzelm@30845
  1572
* Removed fact "case_split_thm", which duplicates "case_split".
wenzelm@30845
  1573
wenzelm@30845
  1574
* The option datatype has been moved to a new theory Option.  Renamed
wenzelm@30845
  1575
option_map to Option.map, and o2s to Option.set, INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
  1576
wenzelm@30845
  1577
* New predicate "strict_mono" classifies strict functions on partial
wenzelm@30845
  1578
orders.  With strict functions on linear orders, reasoning about
wenzelm@30845
  1579
(in)equalities is facilitated by theorems "strict_mono_eq",
wenzelm@30845
  1580
"strict_mono_less_eq" and "strict_mono_less".
wenzelm@30845
  1581
wenzelm@30845
  1582
* Some set operations are now proper qualified constants with
wenzelm@30845
  1583
authentic syntax.  INCOMPATIBILITY:
haftmann@30304
  1584
haftmann@30304
  1585

  1705
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
  1706
wenzelm@30845
  1707

wenzelm@27793
  1708
INCOMPATIBILITY: Instantiation proofs for order, linorder
wenzelm@27793
  1709

  1710
preorder_class.*.
wenzelm@27793
  1711
wenzelm@30845

"diag" to "Id_on".
wenzelm@30845
  1714

wenzelm@30845
  1718
wenzelm@30845
  1719
Occasionally this is more convenient than the old fold combinator
wenzelm@30845

* Theories Ring_and_Field and OrderedGroup: The lemmas "group_simps"
wenzelm@30845
  1724
and "ring_simps" have been replaced by "algebra_simps" (which can be
wenzelm@30845
  1725
extended with further lemmas!).  At the moment both still exist but
wenzelm@30845
  1726
the former will disappear at some point.
wenzelm@30845
  1727
wenzelm@30845
  1728
* Theory Power: Lemma power_Suc is now declared as a simp rule in
wenzelm@30845
  1729
class recpower.  Type-specific simp rules for various recpower types
wenzelm@30845
  1730
have been removed.  INCOMPATIBILITY, rename old lemmas as follows:

* Theories Ring_and_Field and Divides: Definition of "op dvd" has been
wenzelm@27793
  1742
moved to separate class dvd in Ring_and_Field; a couple of lemmas on
wenzelm@27793
  1743
dvd has been generalized to class comm_semiring_1.  Likewise a bunch
wenzelm@27793
  1744
of lemmas from Divides has been generalized from nat to class

* High-level support for concurrent ML programming, see

  1964
src/Pure/Cuncurrent.  The data-oriented model of "future values" is
wenzelm@29161
  1965
particularly convenient to organize independent functional
wenzelm@29161
  1966
computations.  The concept of "synchronized variables" provides a
wenzelm@29161
  1967
higher-order interface for components with shared state, avoiding the
wenzelm@30845
  1968
delicate details of mutexes and condition variables.  (Requires

wenzelm@30845

* ML bindings produced via Isar commands are stored within the Isar
wenzelm@30845
  1972
context (theory or proof).  Consequently, commands like 'use' and 'ML'
wenzelm@30845
  1973
become thread-safe and work with undo as expected (concerning
wenzelm@30845
  1974
top-level bindings, not side-effects on global references).
wenzelm@30845
  1975
INCOMPATIBILITY, need to provide proper Isar context when invoking the

wenzelm@30547
  1987
'method_setup'.  INCOMPATIBILITY for 'method_setup', need to simplify

to 'a -> thm, while results are always tagged with an authentic oracle
wenzelm@28294
  1993

wenzelm@28294

  2006
move from structure NameSpace to Long_Name, e.g. Long_Name.base_name,

wenzelm@30395
  2008
abstract type binding (see structure Binding), which supports precise
wenzelm@30845
  2009
qualification by packages and local theory targets, as well as proper
wenzelm@30845
  2010
tracking of source positions.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to wrap old

wenzelm@25994
  2088
* Theory loader: use_thy (and similar operations) no longer set the
wenzelm@25994
  2089
implicit ML context, which was occasionally hard to predict and in
wenzelm@25994
  2090
conflict with concurrency.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use ML within Isar which
wenzelm@25994
  2091
provides a proper context already.

* Theory loader: old-style ML proof scripts being *attached* to a thy
wenzelm@26323

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

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

is inserted into the first one, while existing entries in the first
wenzelm@26659
  2099
space take precedence.  INCOMPATIBILITY in rare situations, may try to

wenzelm@27067
  2106
which was an accidental (undocumented) feature.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use

* Unused theorems can be found using the new command 'unused_thms'.
berghofe@26681
  2120
There are three ways of invoking it:
berghofe@26681
  2121
berghofe@26681
  2122
(1) unused_thms
berghofe@26681
  2123
     Only finds unused theorems in the current theory.
berghofe@26681
  2124
berghofe@26681
  2125
(2) unused_thms thy_1 ... thy_n -
berghofe@26681
  2126
     Finds unused theorems in the current theory and all of its ancestors,
berghofe@26681
  2127
     excluding the theories thy_1 ... thy_n and all of their ancestors.
berghofe@26681
  2128
berghofe@26681
  2129
(3) unused_thms thy_1 ... thy_n - thy'_1 ... thy'_m
berghofe@26681
  2130
     Finds unused theorems in the theories thy'_1 ... thy'_m and all of
berghofe@26681
  2131
     their ancestors, excluding the theories thy_1 ... thy_n and all of
berghofe@26681
  2132
     their ancestors.
berghofe@26681
  2133
wenzelm@26718
  2134
In order to increase the readability of the list produced by
wenzelm@26718
  2135
unused_thms, theorems that have been created by a particular instance
wenzelm@26874
  2136
of a theory command such as 'inductive' or 'function' are considered
wenzelm@26874
  2137
to belong to the same "group", meaning that if at least one theorem in
wenzelm@26718
  2138
this group is used, the other theorems in the same group are no longer
wenzelm@26718
  2139
reported as unused.  Moreover, if all theorems in the group are
wenzelm@26718
  2140
unused, only one theorem in the group is displayed.
wenzelm@26718
  2141
wenzelm@26718
  2142
Note that proof objects have to be switched on in order for
wenzelm@26718
  2143
unused_thms to work properly (i.e. !proofs must be >= 1, which is
wenzelm@26874
  2144
usually the case when using Proof General with the default settings).

wenzelm@26650
  2146
* Authentic naming of facts disallows ad-hoc overwriting of previous
wenzelm@26650
  2147
theorems within the same name space.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to remove
wenzelm@26650
  2148
duplicate fact bindings, or even accidental fact duplications.  Note
wenzelm@26650
  2149
that tools may maintain dynamically scoped facts systematically, using
wenzelm@26650
  2150
PureThy.add_thms_dynamic.
wenzelm@26650
  2151
wenzelm@26660
  2152
* Command 'hide' now allows to hide from "fact" name space as well.
wenzelm@26660
  2153
wenzelm@26496
  2154
* Eliminated destructive theorem database, simpset, claset, and
wenzelm@26496

wenzelm@26479
  2157
wenzelm@26955
  2158
* Eliminated theory ProtoPure and CPure, leaving just one Pure theory.
wenzelm@26955
  2159
INCOMPATIBILITY, object-logics depending on former Pure require
wenzelm@26955
  2160
additional setup PureThy.old_appl_syntax_setup; object-logics
wenzelm@26955
  2161
depending on former CPure need to refer to Pure.
wenzelm@26650
  2162
wenzelm@26495
  2163
* Commands 'use' and 'ML' are now purely functional, operating on
wenzelm@26479
  2164
theory/local_theory.  Removed former 'ML_setup' (on theory), use 'ML'
wenzelm@26479
  2165
instead.  Added 'ML_val' as mere diagnostic replacement for 'ML'.
wenzelm@26479
  2166
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@26479
  2167
wenzelm@26874

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

wenzelm@25970

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

instance operations together with an instantiation proof.
wenzelm@25970
  2172
Type-checking phase allows to refer to class operations uniformly.

wenzelm@26201
  2178
background context (locale etc.).  Affects `prop` notation and method

  2180
situations.
wenzelm@26201
  2181
wenzelm@26925
  2182
* Method "cases", "induct", "coinduct": removed obsolete/undocumented
wenzelm@26925
  2183
"(open)" option, which used to expose internal bound variables to the
wenzelm@26925
  2184
proof text.
wenzelm@26925
  2185
wenzelm@26925
  2186
* Isar statements: removed obsolete case "rule_context".
wenzelm@26925
  2187
INCOMPATIBILITY, better use explicit fixes/assumes.
wenzelm@26925
  2188
wenzelm@26874
  2189
* Locale proofs: default proof step now includes 'unfold_locales';
wenzelm@26874
  2190
hence 'proof' without argument may be used to unfold locale
wenzelm@26874
  2191

both pdf and dvi (hyperlinks usually work in xdvi as well); removed
wenzelm@26914
  2198
obsolete thumbpdf setup (contemporary PDF viewers do this on the

* Method "induct_scheme" derives user-specified induction rules

  2231
out some operations that are done internally by the function package
wenzelm@27067

* More flexible generation of measure functions for termination
wenzelm@27067
  2236
proofs: Measure functions can be declared by proving a rule of the
wenzelm@27067
  2237
form "is_measure f" and giving it the [measure_function] attribute.
wenzelm@27067
  2238
The "is_measure" predicate is logically meaningless (always true), and
wenzelm@27067
  2239
just guides the heuristic.  To find suitable measure functions, the
wenzelm@27067
  2240
termination prover sets up the goal "is_measure ?f" of the appropriate
wenzelm@27067
  2241
type and generates all solutions by prolog-style backwards proof using
wenzelm@27067
  2242
the declared rules.
wenzelm@27067
  2243
wenzelm@27067
  2244
This setup also deals with rules like 
wenzelm@27067
  2245
wenzelm@27067
  2246
  "is_measure f ==> is_measure (list_size f)"
wenzelm@27067
  2247
wenzelm@27067
  2248
which accommodates nested datatypes that recurse through lists.

  2364
accordingly.

* Theory Nat: definition of <= and < on natural numbers no longer
wenzelm@26180
  2367
depend on well-founded relations.  INCOMPATIBILITY.  Definitions
wenzelm@26180
  2368
le_def and less_def have disappeared.  Consider lemmas not_less

* Theory Finite_Set: locales ACf, ACe, ACIf, ACIfSL and ACIfSLlin
wenzelm@26180
  2372

wenzelm@26180

  2387
wenzelm@26180
  2388
* Class semiring_div provides basic abstract properties of semirings
haftmann@25942
  2389
with division and modulo operations.  Subsumes former class dvd_mod.
haftmann@25942
  2390
wenzelm@26180

  2395
numbers rather than integers.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@26180
  2396
wenzelm@26180
  2397
* New class "uminus" with operation "uminus" (split of from class
wenzelm@26180

equality.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@25464
  2410
schirmer@25705
  2411
* Records. Removed K_record, and replaced it by pure lambda term
wenzelm@25726
  2412
%x. c. The simplifier setup is now more robust against eta expansion.
schirmer@25705
  2413
INCOMPATIBILITY: in cases explicitly referring to K_record.
wenzelm@25464
  2414
wenzelm@27067

* Library/Multiset: {#a, b, c#} abbreviates {#a#} + {#b#} + {#c#}.
wenzelm@27067
  2416
wenzelm@27067
  2417
* Library/ListVector: new theory of arithmetic vector operations.
wenzelm@27067
  2418
wenzelm@27067
  2419
* Library/Order_Relation: new theory of various orderings as sets of

INCOMPATIBILITY: ZF theories that import individual theories below

*** ML ***
wenzelm@25737
  2443
wenzelm@27067
  2444
* ML within Isar: antiquotation @{const name} or @{const
wenzelm@27067
  2445
name(typargs)} produces statically-checked Const term.
wenzelm@27067
  2446
wenzelm@26401
  2447
* Functor NamedThmsFun: data is available to the user as dynamic fact
wenzelm@26724
  2448
(of the same name).  Removed obsolete print command.
wenzelm@26401
  2449
wenzelm@27067
  2450
* Removed obsolete "use_legacy_bindings" function.
wenzelm@26188
  2451
wenzelm@25737
  2452
* The ``print mode'' is now a thread-local value derived from a global
wenzelm@25737
  2453
template (the former print_mode reference), thus access becomes
wenzelm@25737
  2454
non-critical.  The global print_mode reference is for session
wenzelm@25737
  2455
management only; user-code should use print_mode_value,
wenzelm@25737
  2456
print_mode_active, PrintMode.setmp etc.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@25737
  2457
wenzelm@26874
  2458
* Functions system/system_out provide a robust way to invoke external
wenzelm@29161
  2459
shell commands, with propagation of interrupts (requires Poly/ML
wenzelm@29161
  2460
5.2.1).  Do not use OS.Process.system etc. from the basis library!

in accordance with Proof General 3.7, which prefers GNU emacs.
wenzelm@25970
  2467
wenzelm@25626

setting, the default settings attempt to locate "ledit" and "rlwrap".
wenzelm@25626
  2471
wenzelm@25651
  2472

  2473
"javapath" function defined in Isabelle process environment.
wenzelm@25651
  2474
wenzelm@27067
  2475
* YXML notation provides a simple and efficient alternative to
wenzelm@27067
  2476
standard XML transfer syntax.  See src/Pure/General/yxml.ML and
wenzelm@27067
  2477
isatool yxml as described in the Isabelle system manual.
wenzelm@25651
  2478
wenzelm@25652
  2479
* JVM class isabelle.IsabelleProcess (located in Isabelle/lib/classes)
wenzelm@25651
  2480
provides general wrapper for managing an Isabelle process in a robust
wenzelm@25651
  2481
fashion, with ``cooked'' output from stdin/stderr.
wenzelm@25651
  2482
wenzelm@25855
  2483
* Rudimentary Isabelle plugin for jEdit (see Isabelle/lib/jedit),
wenzelm@25855
  2484
based on Isabelle/JVM process wrapper (see Isabelle/lib/classes).
wenzelm@25855
  2485
wenzelm@27067
  2486
* Removed obsolete THIS_IS_ISABELLE_BUILD feature.  NB: the documented
wenzelm@27067
  2487
way of changing the user's settings is via
wenzelm@27067
  2488
ISABELLE_HOME_USER/etc/settings, which is a fully featured bash
wenzelm@27067
  2489
script.
wenzelm@27067
  2490
wenzelm@27067
  2491
* Multithreading.max_threads := 0 refers to the number of actual CPU
wenzelm@27067
  2492
cores of the underlying machine, which is a good starting point for
wenzelm@27067
  2493
optimal performance tuning.  The corresponding usedir option -M allows
wenzelm@27067
  2494
"max" as an alias for "0".  WARNING: does not work on certain versions
wenzelm@27067
  2495
of Mac OS (with Poly/ML 5.1).
wenzelm@27067
  2496
wenzelm@27067
  2497
* isabelle-process: non-ML sessions are run with "nice", to reduce the
wenzelm@27067
  2498
adverse effect of Isabelle flooding interactive front-ends (notably

wenzelm@17754
  2506
*** General ***
wenzelm@17754
  2507
wenzelm@22826
  2508
* More uniform information about legacy features, notably a
wenzelm@22826
  2509
warning/error of "Legacy feature: ...", depending on the state of the
wenzelm@23367
  2510
tolerate_legacy_features flag (default true). FUTURE INCOMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@23367
  2511
legacy features will disappear eventually.
wenzelm@22826
  2512
wenzelm@17918
  2513
* Theory syntax: the header format ``theory A = B + C:'' has been
wenzelm@17918
  2514
discontinued in favour of ``theory A imports B C begin''.  Use isatool
wenzelm@17918
  2515
fixheaders to convert existing theory files.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17918
  2516
wenzelm@17918
  2517
* Theory syntax: the old non-Isar theory file format has been
wenzelm@17918
  2518
discontinued altogether.  Note that ML proof scripts may still be used
wenzelm@17918
  2519
with Isar theories; migration is usually quite simple with the ML
wenzelm@17918
  2520
function use_legacy_bindings.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17918
  2521
wenzelm@22871
  2522
* Theory syntax: some popular names (e.g. 'class', 'declaration',
wenzelm@22871
  2523
'fun', 'help', 'if') are now keywords.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use double
wenzelm@22871
  2524
quotes.
wenzelm@19814
  2525
wenzelm@23888
  2526
* Theory loader: be more serious about observing the static theory
wenzelm@23888
  2527
header specifications (including optional directories), but not the
wenzelm@24172
  2528
accidental file locations of previously successful loads.  The strict
wenzelm@24172
  2529
update policy of former update_thy is now already performed by
wenzelm@24172
  2530
use_thy, so the former has been removed; use_thys updates several
wenzelm@24172
  2531
theories simultaneously, just as 'imports' within a theory header
wenzelm@24172
  2532
specification, but without merging the results.  Potential
wenzelm@24172
  2533
INCOMPATIBILITY: may need to refine theory headers and commands
wenzelm@24172
  2534
ROOT.ML which depend on load order.
wenzelm@23888
  2535
wenzelm@23888
  2536
* Theory loader: optional support for content-based file
wenzelm@23888
  2537
identification, instead of the traditional scheme of full physical
wenzelm@23889
  2538
path plus date stamp; configured by the ISABELLE_FILE_IDENT setting
wenzelm@23888
  2539
(cf. the system manual).  The new scheme allows to work with
wenzelm@23888
  2540
non-finished theories in persistent session images, such that source
wenzelm@23888
  2541
files may be moved later on without requiring reloads.
wenzelm@23888
  2542
wenzelm@24187
  2543
* Theory loader: old-style ML proof scripts being *attached* to a thy
wenzelm@24187
  2544
file (with the same base name as the theory) are considered a legacy
wenzelm@24800
  2545
feature, which will disappear eventually. Even now, the theory loader
wenzelm@24800
  2546
no longer maintains dependencies on such files.
wenzelm@24800
  2547
wenzelm@24800
  2548
* Syntax: the scope for resolving ambiguities via type-inference is
wenzelm@24800
  2549
now limited to individual terms, instead of whole simultaneous
wenzelm@24234
  2550
specifications as before. This greatly reduces the complexity of the
wenzelm@24234
  2551
syntax module and improves flexibility by separating parsing and
wenzelm@24234
  2552
type-checking. INCOMPATIBILITY: additional type-constraints (explicit
wenzelm@24234
  2553
'fixes' etc.) are required in rare situations.
wenzelm@24234
  2554
wenzelm@25034
  2555
* Syntax: constants introduced by new-style packages ('definition',
wenzelm@25034
  2556
'abbreviation' etc.) are passed through the syntax module in
wenzelm@25034
  2557
``authentic mode''. This means that associated mixfix annotations
wenzelm@25034
  2558
really stick to such constants, independently of potential name space
wenzelm@25034
  2559
ambiguities introduced later on. INCOMPATIBILITY: constants in parse
wenzelm@25034
  2560
trees are represented slightly differently, may need to adapt syntax
wenzelm@25034
  2561
translations accordingly. Use CONST marker in 'translations' and
wenzelm@25034
  2562
@{const_syntax} antiquotation in 'parse_translation' etc.
wenzelm@25034
  2563
wenzelm@17981
  2564
* Legacy goal package: reduced interface to the bare minimum required
wenzelm@17981
  2565
to keep existing proof scripts running.  Most other user-level
wenzelm@17981
  2566
functions are now part of the OldGoals structure, which is *not* open
wenzelm@17981
  2567
by default (consider isatool expandshort before open OldGoals).
wenzelm@17981
  2568
Removed top_sg, prin, printyp, pprint_term/typ altogether, because
wenzelm@17981
  2569
these tend to cause confusion about the actual goal (!) context being
wenzelm@17981
  2570
used here, which is not necessarily the same as the_context().
wenzelm@17918
  2571
wenzelm@23379
  2572
* Command 'find_theorems': supports "*" wild-card in "name:"
wenzelm@23379
  2573
criterion; "with_dups" option.  Certain ProofGeneral versions might
wenzelm@23379
  2574
support a specific search form (see ProofGeneral/CHANGES).
webertj@22965
  2575
wenzelm@20370
  2576
* The ``prems limit'' option (cf. ProofContext.prems_limit) is now -1
wenzelm@20370
  2577
by default, which means that "prems" (and also "fixed variables") are
wenzelm@20370
  2578
suppressed from proof state output.  Note that the ProofGeneral
wenzelm@20370
  2579
settings mechanism allows to change and save options persistently, but
wenzelm@20370
  2580
older versions of Isabelle will fail to start up if a negative prems
wenzelm@20370
  2581
limit is imposed.
wenzelm@20370
  2582
wenzelm@21308
  2583
* Local theory targets may be specified by non-nested blocks of
wenzelm@21308
  2584
``context/locale/class ... begin'' followed by ``end''.  The body may
wenzelm@21308
  2585
contain definitions, theorems etc., including any derived mechanism
wenzelm@21308
  2586
that has been implemented on top of these primitives.  This concept
wenzelm@21308
  2587
generalizes the existing ``theorem (in ...)'' towards more versatility
wenzelm@21308
  2588
and scalability.
wenzelm@21308
  2589
wenzelm@21960
  2590
* Proof General interface: proper undo of final 'end' command;
wenzelm@21960
  2591
discontinued Isabelle/classic mode (ML proof scripts).

*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@17865
  2595
wenzelm@21717
  2596
* Added antiquotation @{theory name} which prints the given name,
wenzelm@21717
  2597
after checking that it refers to a valid ancestor theory in the
wenzelm@21717
  2598
current context.
haftmann@21339
  2599
wenzelm@17869
  2600
* Added antiquotations @{ML_type text} and @{ML_struct text} which
wenzelm@17869
  2601
check the given source text as ML type/structure, printing verbatim.
wenzelm@17865
  2602
wenzelm@21717
  2603
* Added antiquotation @{abbrev "c args"} which prints the abbreviation
wenzelm@21717
  2604
"c args == rhs" given in the current context.  (Any number of
wenzelm@21735
  2605
arguments may be given on the LHS.)

  2610
* The 'class' package offers a combination of axclass and locale to
wenzelm@25129
  2611
achieve Haskell-like type classes in Isabelle.  Definitions and
wenzelm@25129
  2612
theorems within a class context produce both relative results (with
wenzelm@25129
  2613
implicit parameters according to the locale context), and polymorphic
wenzelm@25129
  2614
constants with qualified polymorphism (according to the class
wenzelm@25129
  2615
context).  Within the body context of a 'class' target, a separate
wenzelm@25129
  2616
syntax layer ("user space type system") takes care of converting
wenzelm@25129
  2617
between global polymorphic consts and internal locale representation.
