wenzelm@31547
     7
*** General ***
wenzelm@31547
     8
wenzelm@31547
     9
* Discontinued old form of "escaped symbols" such as \\<forall>.  Only
wenzelm@31547
    10
one backslash should be used, even in ML sources.
wenzelm@31547
    11
wenzelm@31547
    12
haftmann@30951
    13
*** Pure ***
haftmann@30951
    14
wenzelm@31547
    15
* On instantiation of classes, remaining undefined class parameters
wenzelm@31547
    16
are formally declared.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@30951
    17
haftmann@30951

haftmann@30930
    19
*** HOL ***
haftmann@30930
    20
wenzelm@31547
    21
* Class semiring_div requires superclass no_zero_divisors and proof of
wenzelm@31547
    22
div_mult_mult1; theorems div_mult_mult1, div_mult_mult2,
wenzelm@31547
    23
div_mult_mult1_if, div_mult_mult1 and div_mult_mult2 have been
wenzelm@31547
    24
generalized to class semiring_div, subsuming former theorems
wenzelm@31547
    25
zdiv_zmult_zmult1, zdiv_zmult_zmult1_if, zdiv_zmult_zmult1 and
wenzelm@31547
    26
zdiv_zmult_zmult2.  div_mult_mult1 is now [simp] by default.
wenzelm@31547
    27
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@31547
    28
wenzelm@31547
    29
* Power operations on relations and functions are now one dedicate
wenzelm@31547
    30
constant compow with infix syntax "^^".  Power operations on
wenzelm@31547
    31
multiplicative monoids retains syntax "^" and is now defined generic
wenzelm@31547
    32
in class power.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@31547
    33
wenzelm@31547
    34
* ML antiquotation @{code_datatype} inserts definition of a datatype
wenzelm@31547
    35
generated by the code generator; see Predicate.thy for an example.
wenzelm@31547
    36
wenzelm@31547
    37
* New method "linarith" invokes existing linear arithmetic decision
wenzelm@31547
    38
procedure only.
haftmann@31481
    39
haftmann@31624
    40
* Implementation of quickcheck using generic code generator; default generators
haftmann@31624
    41
are provided for all suitable HOL types, records and datatypes.
haftmann@31624
    42
haftmann@31643
    43
* Constants Set.Pow and Set.image now with authentic syntax; object-logic definitions
haftmann@31643
    44
Set.Pow_def and Set.image_def.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@31643
    45
nipkow@31790
    46
* Renamed theorems:
nipkow@31790
    47
Suc_eq_add_numeral_1 -> Suc_eq_plus1
nipkow@31790
    48
Suc_eq_add_numeral_1_left -> Suc_eq_plus1_left
nipkow@31790
    49
Suc_plus1 -> Suc_eq_plus1
nipkow@31790
    50
nipkow@31814
    51
* New sledgehammer option "Full Types" in Proof General settings menu.
nipkow@31814
    52
Causes full type information to be output to the ATPs. This slows ATPs down
nipkow@31814
    53
considerably but eliminates a source of unsound "proofs" that fail later.
nipkow@31814
    54
haftmann@31723
    55
* Discontinued ancient tradition to suffix certain ML module names with "_package", e.g.:
haftmann@31723
    56
haftmann@31723
    57
    DatatypePackage ~> Datatype
haftmann@31723
    58
    InductivePackage ~> Inductive
haftmann@31723
    59
haftmann@31723
    60
    etc.
haftmann@31723
    61
haftmann@31723
    62
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@31723
    63
nipkow@31720
    64
* NewNumberTheory: Jeremy Avigad's new version of part of NumberTheory.
nipkow@31720
    65
If possible, use NewNumberTheory, not NumberTheory.
haftmann@30949
    66
haftmann@31784
    67
* Simplified interfaces of datatype module.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@31784
    68
haftmann@31804
    69
* Abbreviation "arbitrary" of "undefined" has disappeared; use "undefined" directly.
haftmann@31804
    70
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@31804
    71
hoelzl@31810
    72
* New evaluator "approximate" approximates an real valued term using the same method as the
hoelzl@31810
    73
approximation method. 
haftmann@31784
    74
hoelzl@31812
    75
* "approximate" supports now arithmetic expressions as boundaries of intervals and implements
hoelzl@31812
    76
interval splitting.
hoelzl@31812
    77
hoelzl@31812
    78
wenzelm@31304
    79
*** ML ***
wenzelm@31304
    80
wenzelm@31306
    81
* Eliminated old Attrib.add_attributes, Method.add_methods and related
wenzelm@31306
    82
cominators for "args".  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to use simplified
wenzelm@31306
    83
Attrib/Method.setup introduced in Isabelle2009.
wenzelm@31304
    84
wenzelm@31304
    85
wenzelm@31308
    86
*** System ***
wenzelm@31308
    87
wenzelm@31308
    88
* Discontinued support for Poly/ML 4.x versions.
wenzelm@31308
    89
wenzelm@31317
    90
* Removed "compress" option from isabelle-process and isabelle usedir;
wenzelm@31317
    91
this is always enabled.
wenzelm@31317
    92
wenzelm@31308
    93
wenzelm@31304

wenzelm@30845
    95
New in Isabelle2009 (April 2009)
wenzelm@30845
    96
--------------------------------
haftmann@27104
    97
wenzelm@27599
    98
*** General ***
wenzelm@27599
    99
wenzelm@28504
   100
* Simplified main Isabelle executables, with less surprises on
wenzelm@28504
   101
case-insensitive file-systems (such as Mac OS).
wenzelm@28504
   102
wenzelm@28504
   103
  - The main Isabelle tool wrapper is now called "isabelle" instead of
wenzelm@28504
   104
    "isatool."
wenzelm@28504
   105
wenzelm@28504
   106
  - The former "isabelle" alias for "isabelle-process" has been
wenzelm@28504
   107
    removed (should rarely occur to regular users).
wenzelm@28504
   108
wenzelm@28915
   109
  - The former "isabelle-interface" and its alias "Isabelle" have been
wenzelm@28915
   110
    removed (interfaces are now regular Isabelle tools).
wenzelm@28504
   111
wenzelm@28504
   112
Within scripts and make files, the Isabelle environment variables
wenzelm@28504
   113
ISABELLE_TOOL and ISABELLE_PROCESS replace old ISATOOL and ISABELLE,
wenzelm@28504
   114
respectively.  (The latter are still available as legacy feature.)
wenzelm@28504
   115
wenzelm@28915
   116
The old isabelle-interface wrapper could react in confusing ways if
wenzelm@28915
   117
the interface was uninstalled or changed otherwise.  Individual
wenzelm@28915
   118
interface tool configuration is now more explicit, see also the
wenzelm@28915
   119
Isabelle system manual.  In particular, Proof General is now available
wenzelm@28915
   120
via "isabelle emacs".
wenzelm@28504
   121
wenzelm@28504
   122
INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt derivative scripts.  Users may need to
wenzelm@28504
   123
purge installed copies of Isabelle executables and re-run "isabelle
wenzelm@28504
   124
install -p ...", or use symlinks.
wenzelm@28504
   125
wenzelm@28914
   126
* The default for ISABELLE_HOME_USER is now ~/.isabelle instead of the
wenzelm@30845
   127
old ~/isabelle, which was slightly non-standard and apt to cause
wenzelm@30845
   128
surprises on case-insensitive file-systems (such as Mac OS).
wenzelm@28914
   129
wenzelm@28914
   130
INCOMPATIBILITY, need to move existing ~/isabelle/etc,
wenzelm@28914
   131
~/isabelle/heaps, ~/isabelle/browser_info to the new place.  Special
wenzelm@28914
   132
care is required when using older releases of Isabelle.  Note that
wenzelm@28914
   133
ISABELLE_HOME_USER can be changed in Isabelle/etc/settings of any
wenzelm@30845
   134
Isabelle distribution, in order to use the new ~/.isabelle uniformly.
wenzelm@28914
   135
wenzelm@29161
   136
* Proofs of fully specified statements are run in parallel on
wenzelm@30845
   137
multi-core systems.  A speedup factor of 2.5 to 3.2 can be expected on
wenzelm@30845
   138
a regular 4-core machine, if the initial heap space is made reasonably
wenzelm@30845
   139
large (cf. Poly/ML option -H).  (Requires Poly/ML 5.2.1 or later.)
wenzelm@30845
   140
wenzelm@30845
   141
* The main reference manuals ("isar-ref", "implementation", and
wenzelm@30845
   142
"system") have been updated and extended.  Formally checked references
wenzelm@30845
   143
as hyperlinks are now available uniformly.
wenzelm@30845
   144
wenzelm@30163
   145
wenzelm@27599
   146
*** Pure ***
wenzelm@27599
   147
wenzelm@30845
   148
* Complete re-implementation of locales.  INCOMPATIBILITY in several
wenzelm@30845
   149
respects.  The most important changes are listed below.  See the
wenzelm@30845
   150
Tutorial on Locales ("locales" manual) for details.
ballarin@29253
   151
ballarin@29253
   152
- In locale expressions, instantiation replaces renaming.  Parameters
ballarin@29253
   153
must be declared in a for clause.  To aid compatibility with previous
ballarin@29253
   154
parameter inheritance, in locale declarations, parameters that are not
ballarin@29253
   155
'touched' (instantiation position "_" or omitted) are implicitly added
ballarin@29253
   156
with their syntax at the beginning of the for clause.
ballarin@29253
   157
ballarin@29253
   158
- Syntax from abbreviations and definitions in locales is available in
ballarin@29253
   159
locale expressions and context elements.  The latter is particularly
ballarin@29253
   160
useful in locale declarations.
ballarin@29253
   161
ballarin@29253
   162
- More flexible mechanisms to qualify names generated by locale
ballarin@29253
   163
expressions.  Qualifiers (prefixes) may be specified in locale
wenzelm@30728
   164
expressions, and can be marked as mandatory (syntax: "name!:") or
wenzelm@30728
   165
optional (syntax "name?:").  The default depends for plain "name:"
wenzelm@30728
   166
depends on the situation where a locale expression is used: in
wenzelm@30728
   167
commands 'locale' and 'sublocale' prefixes are optional, in
wenzelm@30845
   168
'interpretation' and 'interpret' prefixes are mandatory.  The old
wenzelm@30728
   169
implicit qualifiers derived from the parameter names of a locale are
wenzelm@30728
   170
no longer generated.
wenzelm@30106
   171
wenzelm@30845
   172
- Command "sublocale l < e" replaces "interpretation l < e".  The
wenzelm@30106
   173
instantiation clause in "interpretation" and "interpret" (square
wenzelm@30106
   174
brackets) is no longer available.  Use locale expressions.
ballarin@29253
   175
wenzelm@30845
   176
- When converting proof scripts, mandatory qualifiers in
wenzelm@30728
   177
'interpretation' and 'interpret' should be retained by default, even
wenzelm@30845
   178
if this is an INCOMPATIBILITY compared to former behavior.  In the
wenzelm@30845
   179
worst case, use the "name?:" form for non-mandatory ones.  Qualifiers
wenzelm@30845
   180
in locale expressions range over a single locale instance only.
wenzelm@30845
   181
wenzelm@30845
   182
- Dropped locale element "includes".  This is a major INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   183
In existing theorem specifications replace the includes element by the
wenzelm@30845
   184
respective context elements of the included locale, omitting those
wenzelm@30845
   185
that are already present in the theorem specification.  Multiple
wenzelm@30845
   186
assume elements of a locale should be replaced by a single one
wenzelm@30845
   187
involving the locale predicate.  In the proof body, declarations (most
wenzelm@30845
   188
notably theorems) may be regained by interpreting the respective
wenzelm@30845
   189
locales in the proof context as required (command "interpret").
wenzelm@30845
   190
wenzelm@30845
   191
If using "includes" in replacement of a target solely because the
wenzelm@30845
   192
parameter types in the theorem are not as general as in the target,
wenzelm@30845
   193
consider declaring a new locale with additional type constraints on
wenzelm@30845
   194
the parameters (context element "constrains").
wenzelm@30845
   195
wenzelm@30845
   196
- Discontinued "locale (open)".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   197
wenzelm@30845
   198
- Locale interpretation commands no longer attempt to simplify goal.
wenzelm@30845
   199
INCOMPATIBILITY: in rare situations the generated goal differs.  Use
wenzelm@30845
   200
methods intro_locales and unfold_locales to clarify.
wenzelm@30845
   201
wenzelm@30845
   202
- Locale interpretation commands no longer accept interpretation
wenzelm@30845
   203
attributes.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   204
wenzelm@30845
   205
* Class declaration: so-called "base sort" must not be given in import
wenzelm@30845
   206
list any longer, but is inferred from the specification.  Particularly
wenzelm@30845
   207
in HOL, write
wenzelm@30845
   208
wenzelm@30845
   209
    class foo = ...
wenzelm@30845
   210
wenzelm@30845
   211
instead of
wenzelm@30845
   212
wenzelm@30845
   213
    class foo = type + ...
wenzelm@30845
   214
wenzelm@30845
   215
* Class target: global versions of theorems stemming do not carry a
wenzelm@30845
   216
parameter prefix any longer.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   217
wenzelm@30845
   218
* Class 'instance' command no longer accepts attached definitions.
wenzelm@30845
   219
INCOMPATIBILITY, use proper 'instantiation' target instead.
wenzelm@30845
   220
wenzelm@30845
   221
* Recovered hiding of consts, which was accidentally broken in
wenzelm@30845
   222
Isabelle2007.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY, ``hide const c'' really
wenzelm@30845
   223
makes c inaccessible; consider using ``hide (open) const c'' instead.
wenzelm@30845
   224
wenzelm@30845
   225
* Slightly more coherent Pure syntax, with updated documentation in
wenzelm@30845
   226
isar-ref manual.  Removed locales meta_term_syntax and
wenzelm@30845
   227
meta_conjunction_syntax: TERM and &&& (formerly &&) are now permanent,
wenzelm@30845
   228
INCOMPATIBILITY in rare situations.  Note that &&& should not be used
wenzelm@30845
   229
directly in regular applications.
wenzelm@30845
   230
wenzelm@30845
   231
* There is a new syntactic category "float_const" for signed decimal
wenzelm@30845
   232
fractions (e.g. 123.45 or -123.45).
wenzelm@30845
   233
wenzelm@30845
   234
* Removed exotic 'token_translation' command.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use ML
wenzelm@30845
   235
interface with 'setup' command instead.
wenzelm@30845
   236
wenzelm@30845
   237
* Command 'local_setup' is similar to 'setup', but operates on a local
wenzelm@30845
   238
theory context.
haftmann@27104
   239
wenzelm@28114
   240
* The 'axiomatization' command now only works within a global theory
wenzelm@28114
   241
context.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@28114
   242
wenzelm@30845
   243
* Goal-directed proof now enforces strict proof irrelevance wrt. sort
wenzelm@30845
   244
hypotheses.  Sorts required in the course of reasoning need to be
wenzelm@30845
   245
covered by the constraints in the initial statement, completed by the
wenzelm@30845
   246
type instance information of the background theory.  Non-trivial sort
wenzelm@30845
   247
hypotheses, which rarely occur in practice, may be specified via
wenzelm@30845
   248
vacuous propositions of the form SORT_CONSTRAINT('a::c).  For example:
wenzelm@30845
   249
wenzelm@30845
   250
  lemma assumes "SORT_CONSTRAINT('a::empty)" shows False ...
wenzelm@30845
   251
wenzelm@30845
   252
The result contains an implicit sort hypotheses as before --
wenzelm@30845
   253
SORT_CONSTRAINT premises are eliminated as part of the canonical rule
wenzelm@30845
   254
normalization.
wenzelm@30845
   255
wenzelm@30845
   256
* Generalized Isar history, with support for linear undo, direct state
wenzelm@30845
   257
addressing etc.
wenzelm@30845
   258
wenzelm@30845
   259
* Changed defaults for unify configuration options:
wenzelm@30845
   260
wenzelm@30845
   261
  unify_trace_bound = 50 (formerly 25)
wenzelm@30845
   262
  unify_search_bound = 60 (formerly 30)
wenzelm@30845
   263
wenzelm@30845
   264
* Different bookkeeping for code equations (INCOMPATIBILITY):
wenzelm@30845
   265
wenzelm@30845
   266
  a) On theory merge, the last set of code equations for a particular
wenzelm@30845
   267
     constant is taken (in accordance with the policy applied by other
wenzelm@30845
   268
     parts of the code generator framework).
wenzelm@30845
   269
wenzelm@30845
   270
  b) Code equations stemming from explicit declarations (e.g. code
wenzelm@30845
   271
     attribute) gain priority over default code equations stemming
wenzelm@30845
   272
     from definition, primrec, fun etc.
wenzelm@30845
   273
wenzelm@30845
   274
* Keyword 'code_exception' now named 'code_abort'.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   275
haftmann@30965
   276
* Unified theorem tables for both code generators.  Thus [code
wenzelm@30845
   277
func] has disappeared and only [code] remains.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30577
   278
wenzelm@30577

* Command 'find_consts' searches for constants based on type and name
wenzelm@30577
   280
patterns, e.g.
kleing@29883
   281
kleing@29883
   282
    find_consts "_ => bool"
kleing@29883
   283
wenzelm@30106
   284
By default, matching is against subtypes, but it may be restricted to
wenzelm@30728
   285
the whole type.  Searching by name is possible.  Multiple queries are
wenzelm@30106
   286
conjunctive and queries may be negated by prefixing them with a
wenzelm@30106
   287
hyphen:
kleing@29883
   288
kleing@29883
   289
    find_consts strict: "_ => bool" name: "Int" -"int => int"
kleing@29861

wenzelm@30845
   291
* New 'find_theorems' criterion "solves" matches theorems that
wenzelm@30845
   292
directly solve the current goal (modulo higher-order unification).
wenzelm@30845
   293
wenzelm@30845
   294
* Auto solve feature for main theorem statements: whenever a new goal
wenzelm@30845
   295
is stated, "find_theorems solves" is called; any theorems that could
wenzelm@30845
   296
solve the lemma directly are listed as part of the goal state.

* Antiquotation @{lemma} now imitates a regular terminal proof,
wenzelm@27392
   305
demanding keyword 'by' and supporting the full method expression
wenzelm@27519
   306
syntax just like the Isar command 'by'.

*** HOL ***
haftmann@27104
   310
wenzelm@30845
   311
* Integrated main parts of former image HOL-Complex with HOL.  Entry
wenzelm@30845
   312
points Main and Complex_Main remain as before.
wenzelm@30845
   313
wenzelm@30845
   314
* Logic image HOL-Plain provides a minimal HOL with the most important
wenzelm@30845
   315
tools available (inductive, datatype, primrec, ...).  This facilitates
wenzelm@30845
   316
experimentation and tool development.  Note that user applications
wenzelm@30845
   317
(and library theories) should never refer to anything below theory
wenzelm@30845
   318
Main, as before.
wenzelm@30845
   319
wenzelm@30845
   320
* Logic image HOL-Main stops at theory Main, and thus facilitates
wenzelm@30845
   321
experimentation due to shorter build times.
wenzelm@30845
   322
wenzelm@30845
   323
* Logic image HOL-NSA contains theories of nonstandard analysis which
wenzelm@30845
   324
were previously part of former HOL-Complex.  Entry point Hyperreal
wenzelm@30845
   325
remains valid, but theories formerly using Complex_Main should now use
wenzelm@30845
   326
new entry point Hypercomplex.
wenzelm@30845
   327
wenzelm@30845
   328
* Generic ATP manager for Sledgehammer, based on ML threads instead of
wenzelm@30845
   329
Posix processes.  Avoids potentially expensive forking of the ML
wenzelm@30845
   330
process.  New thread-based implementation also works on non-Unix
wenzelm@30845
   331
platforms (Cygwin).  Provers are no longer hardwired, but defined
wenzelm@30845
   332
within the theory via plain ML wrapper functions.  Basic Sledgehammer
wenzelm@30845
   333
commands are covered in the isar-ref manual.
wenzelm@30845
   334
wenzelm@30845
   335
* Wrapper scripts for remote SystemOnTPTP service allows to use
wenzelm@30845
   336
sledgehammer without local ATP installation (Vampire etc.). Other
wenzelm@30845
   337
provers may be included via suitable ML wrappers, see also

src/HOL/ATP_Linkup.thy.
wenzelm@30845
   339
wenzelm@30845

wenzelm@30845
   342
wenzelm@30845
   343
* The metis method no longer fails because the theorem is too trivial
wenzelm@30845
   344
(contains the empty clause).
wenzelm@30845
   345
wenzelm@30845
   346
* The metis method now fails in the usual manner, rather than raising
wenzelm@30845
   347
an exception, if it determines that it cannot prove the theorem.
wenzelm@30845
   348
wenzelm@30845
   349
* Method "coherent" implements a prover for coherent logic (see also
wenzelm@30845
   350
src/Tools/coherent.ML).
wenzelm@30845
   351
wenzelm@30845
   352
* Constants "undefined" and "default" replace "arbitrary".  Usually
wenzelm@30845
   353
"undefined" is the right choice to replace "arbitrary", though
wenzelm@30845
   354
logically there is no difference.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   355
wenzelm@30845
   356
* Command "value" now integrates different evaluation mechanisms.  The
wenzelm@30845
   357
result of the first successful evaluation mechanism is printed.  In
wenzelm@30845
   358
square brackets a particular named evaluation mechanisms may be
wenzelm@30845
   359
specified (currently, [SML], [code] or [nbe]).  See further

   360
src/HOL/ex/Eval_Examples.thy.
wenzelm@30845
   361
wenzelm@30845

* Normalization by evaluation now allows non-leftlinear equations.
wenzelm@30845
   363
Declare with attribute [code nbe].
wenzelm@30845
   364
wenzelm@30845
   365
* Methods "case_tac" and "induct_tac" now refer to the very same rules
wenzelm@30845
   366
as the structured Isar versions "cases" and "induct", cf. the
wenzelm@30845
   367
corresponding "cases" and "induct" attributes.  Mutual induction rules
wenzelm@30845
   368
are now presented as a list of individual projections
wenzelm@30845
   369
(e.g. foo_bar.inducts for types foo and bar); the old format with
wenzelm@30845
   370
explicit HOL conjunction is no longer supported.  INCOMPATIBILITY, in
wenzelm@30845
   371
rare situations a different rule is selected --- notably nested tuple
wenzelm@30845
   372
elimination instead of former prod.exhaust: use explicit (case_tac t
wenzelm@30845
   373
rule: prod.exhaust) here.
wenzelm@30845
   374
wenzelm@30845
   375
* Attributes "cases", "induct", "coinduct" support "del" option.
wenzelm@30845
   376
wenzelm@30845
   377
* Removed fact "case_split_thm", which duplicates "case_split".
wenzelm@30845
   378
wenzelm@30845
   379
* The option datatype has been moved to a new theory Option.  Renamed
wenzelm@30845
   380
option_map to Option.map, and o2s to Option.set, INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   381
wenzelm@30845
   382
* New predicate "strict_mono" classifies strict functions on partial
wenzelm@30845
   383
orders.  With strict functions on linear orders, reasoning about
wenzelm@30845
   384
(in)equalities is facilitated by theorems "strict_mono_eq",
wenzelm@30845
   385
"strict_mono_less_eq" and "strict_mono_less".
wenzelm@30845
   386

   412
interval arithmetic.  In the formulas are also the transcendental

variable occurs at most once in let expression body.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   487
wenzelm@30845

fast_arith_neq_limit is exceeded, instead of giving up entirely.
wenzelm@30845
   490
wenzelm@30845

* New attribute "arith" for facts that should always be used
wenzelm@30845
   492
automatically by arithmetic. It is intended to be used locally in

requires instantiation of classes "top" and "bot".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   502
wenzelm@30845
   503
* Changed definition lemma "less_fun_def" in order to provide an

   505
INCOMPATIBILITY.

* Theory Orderings: class "wellorder" moved here, with explicit
wenzelm@30845
   508
induction rule "less_induct" as assumption.  For instantiation of
wenzelm@30845
   509
"wellorder" by means of predicate "wf", use rule wf_wellorderI.

   510
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   511
wenzelm@30845
   512
* Theory Orderings: added class "preorder" as superclass of "order".
wenzelm@27793
   513
INCOMPATIBILITY: Instantiation proofs for order, linorder
wenzelm@27793
   514
etc. slightly changed.  Some theorems named order_class.* now named
wenzelm@27793
   515
preorder_class.*.
wenzelm@27793
   516
wenzelm@30845

   518
"diag" to "Id_on".
wenzelm@30845
   519
wenzelm@30845

  ('a => 'b => 'b) => 'b => 'a set => 'b
wenzelm@30845
   523
wenzelm@30845
   524
Occasionally this is more convenient than the old fold combinator
wenzelm@30845

   526
fold_image.
wenzelm@30845
   527
wenzelm@30845
   528
* Theories Ring_and_Field and OrderedGroup: The lemmas "group_simps"
wenzelm@30845
   529
and "ring_simps" have been replaced by "algebra_simps" (which can be
wenzelm@30845
   530
extended with further lemmas!).  At the moment both still exist but
wenzelm@30845
   531
the former will disappear at some point.
wenzelm@30845
   532
wenzelm@30845
   533
* Theory Power: Lemma power_Suc is now declared as a simp rule in
wenzelm@30845
   534
class recpower.  Type-specific simp rules for various recpower types
wenzelm@30845
   535
have been removed.  INCOMPATIBILITY, rename old lemmas as follows:
huffman@30273
   536
huffman@30273
   537
rat_power_0    -> power_0
huffman@30273

* Simplified ML attribute and method setup, cf. functions Attrib.setup
wenzelm@30845
   791
and Method.setup, as well as Isar commands 'attribute_setup' and
wenzelm@30547
   792
'method_setup'.  INCOMPATIBILITY for 'method_setup', need to simplify
wenzelm@30547
   793
existing code accordingly, or use plain 'setup' together with old
wenzelm@30547
   794
Method.add_method.
wenzelm@30530
   795
wenzelm@28294
   796
* Simplified ML oracle interface Thm.add_oracle promotes 'a -> cterm
wenzelm@28294
   797
to 'a -> thm, while results are always tagged with an authentic oracle
wenzelm@28294
   798
name.  The Isar command 'oracle' is now polymorphic, no argument type
wenzelm@28294
   799
is specified.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to simplify existing oracle code
wenzelm@28294
   800
accordingly.  Note that extra performance may be gained by producing
wenzelm@28294
   801
the cterm carefully, avoiding slow Thm.cterm_of.
wenzelm@28294
   802
wenzelm@30845
   803
* Simplified interface for defining document antiquotations via
wenzelm@30845
   804
ThyOutput.antiquotation, ThyOutput.output, and optionally
wenzelm@30845
   805
ThyOutput.maybe_pretty_source.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to simplify user
wenzelm@30845
   806
antiquotations accordingly, see src/Pure/Thy/thy_output.ML for common
wenzelm@30845
   807
examples.
wenzelm@28099
   808
wenzelm@30395
   809
* More systematic treatment of long names, abstract name bindings, and
wenzelm@30395
   810
name space operations.  Basic operations on qualified names have been
wenzelm@30399
   811
move from structure NameSpace to Long_Name, e.g. Long_Name.base_name,
wenzelm@30395
   812
Long_Name.append.  Old type bstring has been mostly replaced by
wenzelm@30395
   813
abstract type binding (see structure Binding), which supports precise
wenzelm@30845
   814
qualification by packages and local theory targets, as well as proper
wenzelm@30845
   815
tracking of source positions.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to wrap old
wenzelm@30845
   816
bstring values into Binding.name, or better pass through abstract
wenzelm@30399
   817
bindings everywhere.  See further src/Pure/General/long_name.ML,
wenzelm@30395
   818
src/Pure/General/binding.ML and src/Pure/General/name_space.ML
wenzelm@30395
   819
wenzelm@28089
   820
* Result facts (from PureThy.note_thms, ProofContext.note_thms,
wenzelm@28089
   821
LocalTheory.note etc.) now refer to the *full* internal name, not the
wenzelm@28089
   822
bstring as before.  INCOMPATIBILITY, not detected by ML type-checking!
wenzelm@28089
   823
wenzelm@27287
   824
* Disposed old type and term read functions (Sign.read_def_typ,
wenzelm@27287
   825
Sign.read_typ, Sign.read_def_terms, Sign.read_term,
wenzelm@27287
   826
Thm.read_def_cterms, Thm.read_cterm etc.).  INCOMPATIBILITY, should
wenzelm@27287
   827
use regular Syntax.read_typ, Syntax.read_term, Syntax.read_typ_global,
wenzelm@27269
   828
Syntax.read_term_global etc.; see also OldGoals.read_term as last
wenzelm@27269
   829
resort for legacy applications.
wenzelm@27269
   830
wenzelm@30609
   831
* Disposed old declarations, tactics, tactic combinators that refer to
wenzelm@30609
   832
the simpset or claset of an implicit theory (such as Addsimps,
wenzelm@30609
   833
Simp_tac, SIMPSET).  INCOMPATIBILITY, should use @{simpset} etc. in
wenzelm@30609
   834
embedded ML text, or local_simpset_of with a proper context passed as
wenzelm@30609
   835
explicit runtime argument.
wenzelm@30609
   836
wenzelm@30845
   837
* Rules and tactics that read instantiations (read_instantiate,
wenzelm@30845
   838
res_inst_tac, thin_tac, subgoal_tac etc.) now demand a proper proof
wenzelm@30845
   839
context, which is required for parsing and type-checking.  Moreover,
wenzelm@30845
   840
the variables are specified as plain indexnames, not string encodings
wenzelm@30845
   841
thereof.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   842
wenzelm@30845
   843
* Generic Toplevel.add_hook interface allows to analyze the result of
wenzelm@30845
   844
transactions.  E.g. see src/Pure/ProofGeneral/proof_general_pgip.ML
wenzelm@30845
   845
for theorem dependency output of transactions resulting in a new
wenzelm@30845
   846
theory state.
wenzelm@30845
   847
wenzelm@30845
   848
* ML antiquotations: block-structured compilation context indicated by
wenzelm@27391
   849
\<lbrace> ... \<rbrace>; additional antiquotation forms:
wenzelm@27391
   850
wenzelm@30845
   851
  @{binding name}                         - basic name binding
wenzelm@27519
   852
  @{let ?pat = term}                      - term abbreviation (HO matching)
wenzelm@27519
   853
  @{note name = fact}                     - fact abbreviation
wenzelm@27519
   854
  @{thm fact}                             - singleton fact (with attributes)
wenzelm@27519
   855
  @{thms fact}                            - general fact (with attributes)
wenzelm@27519
   856
  @{lemma prop by method}                 - singleton goal
wenzelm@27519
   857
  @{lemma prop by meth1 meth2}            - singleton goal
wenzelm@27519
   858
  @{lemma prop1 ... propN by method}      - general goal
wenzelm@27519
   859
  @{lemma prop1 ... propN by meth1 meth2} - general goal
wenzelm@27519
   860
  @{lemma (open) ...}                     - open derivation

wenzelm@28248
   865
* The Isabelle "emacs" tool provides a specific interface to invoke
wenzelm@28248
   866
Proof General / Emacs, with more explicit failure if that is not
wenzelm@28248
   867
installed (the old isabelle-interface script silently falls back on
wenzelm@28248
   868
isabelle-process).  The PROOFGENERAL_HOME setting determines the
wenzelm@28248
   869
installation location of the Proof General distribution.
wenzelm@28248
   870
wenzelm@27979
   871
* Isabelle/lib/classes/Pure.jar provides basic support to integrate
wenzelm@27979
   872
the Isabelle process into a JVM/Scala application.  See
wenzelm@27979
   873
Isabelle/lib/jedit/plugin for a minimal example.  (The obsolete Java
wenzelm@27979
   874
process wrapper has been discontinued.)
wenzelm@27979
   875
wenzelm@30845
   876
* Added homegrown Isabelle font with unicode layout, see lib/fonts.
wenzelm@30845
   877
wenzelm@30845
   878
* Various status messages (with exact source position information) are
wenzelm@27979
   879
emitted, if proper markup print mode is enabled.  This allows
wenzelm@27979
   880
user-interface components to provide detailed feedback on internal
wenzelm@27979
   881
prover operations.

*** General ***
wenzelm@25522
   889
wenzelm@27061
   890
* The Isabelle/Isar Reference Manual (isar-ref) has been reorganized
wenzelm@27061
   891
and updated, with formally checked references as hyperlinks.
wenzelm@27061
   892
wenzelm@25994
   893
* Theory loader: use_thy (and similar operations) no longer set the
wenzelm@25994
   894
implicit ML context, which was occasionally hard to predict and in
wenzelm@25994
   895
conflict with concurrency.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use ML within Isar which
wenzelm@25994
   896
provides a proper context already.
wenzelm@25994
   897
wenzelm@26323
   898
* Theory loader: old-style ML proof scripts being *attached* to a thy
wenzelm@26323
   899
file are no longer supported.  INCOMPATIBILITY, regular 'uses' and
wenzelm@26323
   900
'use' within a theory file will do the job.
wenzelm@26323
   901
wenzelm@26650
   902
* Name space merge now observes canonical order, i.e. the second space
wenzelm@26650
   903
is inserted into the first one, while existing entries in the first
wenzelm@26659
   904
space take precedence.  INCOMPATIBILITY in rare situations, may try to
wenzelm@26650
   905
swap theory imports.
wenzelm@26650
   906
wenzelm@27067
   907
* Syntax: symbol \<chi> is now considered a letter.  Potential
wenzelm@27067
   908
INCOMPATIBILITY in identifier syntax etc.
wenzelm@27067
   909
wenzelm@27067
   910
* Outer syntax: string tokens no longer admit escaped white space,
wenzelm@27067
   911
which was an accidental (undocumented) feature.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use
wenzelm@27067
   912
white space without escapes.
wenzelm@27067
   913
wenzelm@27067
   914
* Outer syntax: string tokens may contain arbitrary character codes
wenzelm@27067
   915
specified via 3 decimal digits (as in SML).  E.g. "foo\095bar" for
wenzelm@27067
   916
"foo_bar".

* Context-dependent token translations.  Default setup reverts locally
wenzelm@26718
   922
fixed variables, and adds hilite markup for undeclared frees.
wenzelm@26718
   923
berghofe@26681
   924
* Unused theorems can be found using the new command 'unused_thms'.
berghofe@26681
   925
There are three ways of invoking it:
berghofe@26681
   926
berghofe@26681
   927
(1) unused_thms
berghofe@26681
   928
     Only finds unused theorems in the current theory.
berghofe@26681
   929
berghofe@26681
   930
(2) unused_thms thy_1 ... thy_n -
berghofe@26681
   931
     Finds unused theorems in the current theory and all of its ancestors,
berghofe@26681
   932
     excluding the theories thy_1 ... thy_n and all of their ancestors.
berghofe@26681
   933
berghofe@26681
   934
(3) unused_thms thy_1 ... thy_n - thy'_1 ... thy'_m
berghofe@26681
   935
     Finds unused theorems in the theories thy'_1 ... thy'_m and all of
berghofe@26681
   936
     their ancestors, excluding the theories thy_1 ... thy_n and all of
berghofe@26681
   937
     their ancestors.
berghofe@26681
   938
wenzelm@26718
   939
In order to increase the readability of the list produced by
wenzelm@26718
   940
unused_thms, theorems that have been created by a particular instance
wenzelm@26874
   941
of a theory command such as 'inductive' or 'function' are considered
wenzelm@26874
   942
to belong to the same "group", meaning that if at least one theorem in
wenzelm@26718
   943
this group is used, the other theorems in the same group are no longer
wenzelm@26718
   944
reported as unused.  Moreover, if all theorems in the group are
wenzelm@26718
   945
unused, only one theorem in the group is displayed.
wenzelm@26718
   946
wenzelm@26718
   947
Note that proof objects have to be switched on in order for
wenzelm@26718
   948
unused_thms to work properly (i.e. !proofs must be >= 1, which is
wenzelm@26874
   949
usually the case when using Proof General with the default settings).
berghofe@26681
   950
wenzelm@26650
   951
* Authentic naming of facts disallows ad-hoc overwriting of previous
wenzelm@26650
   952
theorems within the same name space.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to remove
wenzelm@26650
   953
duplicate fact bindings, or even accidental fact duplications.  Note
wenzelm@26650
   954
that tools may maintain dynamically scoped facts systematically, using
wenzelm@26650
   955
PureThy.add_thms_dynamic.
wenzelm@26650
   956
wenzelm@26660
   957
* Command 'hide' now allows to hide from "fact" name space as well.
wenzelm@26660
   958
wenzelm@26496
   959
* Eliminated destructive theorem database, simpset, claset, and
wenzelm@26496
   960
clasimpset.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY, really need to observe linear
wenzelm@26496
   961
update of theories within ML code.
wenzelm@26479
   962
wenzelm@26955
   963
* Eliminated theory ProtoPure and CPure, leaving just one Pure theory.
wenzelm@26955
   964
INCOMPATIBILITY, object-logics depending on former Pure require
wenzelm@26955
   965
additional setup PureThy.old_appl_syntax_setup; object-logics
wenzelm@26955
   966
depending on former CPure need to refer to Pure.
wenzelm@26650
   967
wenzelm@26495
   968
* Commands 'use' and 'ML' are now purely functional, operating on
wenzelm@26479
   969
theory/local_theory.  Removed former 'ML_setup' (on theory), use 'ML'
wenzelm@26479
   970
instead.  Added 'ML_val' as mere diagnostic replacement for 'ML'.
wenzelm@26479
   971
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@26479
   972
wenzelm@26874
   973
* Command 'setup': discontinued implicit version with ML reference.
wenzelm@26434
   974
wenzelm@25970
   975
* Instantiation target allows for simultaneous specification of class
wenzelm@25970
   976
instance operations together with an instantiation proof.
wenzelm@25970
   977
Type-checking phase allows to refer to class operations uniformly.

wenzelm@26201

* Indexing of literal facts: be more serious about including only
wenzelm@26201
   982
facts from the visible specification/proof context, but not the
wenzelm@26201
   983
background context (locale etc.).  Affects `prop` notation and method
wenzelm@26201
   984
"fact".  INCOMPATIBILITY: need to name facts explicitly in rare
wenzelm@26201
   985
situations.
wenzelm@26201
   986
wenzelm@26925
   987
* Method "cases", "induct", "coinduct": removed obsolete/undocumented
wenzelm@26925
   988
"(open)" option, which used to expose internal bound variables to the
wenzelm@26925
   989
proof text.
wenzelm@26925
   990
wenzelm@26925
   991
* Isar statements: removed obsolete case "rule_context".
wenzelm@26925
   992
INCOMPATIBILITY, better use explicit fixes/assumes.
wenzelm@26925
   993
wenzelm@26874
   994
* Locale proofs: default proof step now includes 'unfold_locales';
wenzelm@26874
   995
hence 'proof' without argument may be used to unfold locale
wenzelm@26874
   996
predicates.

  1001
* Simplified pdfsetup.sty: color/hyperref is used unconditionally for
wenzelm@26914
  1002
both pdf and dvi (hyperlinks usually work in xdvi as well); removed
wenzelm@26914
  1003
obsolete thumbpdf setup (contemporary PDF viewers do this on the
wenzelm@26914
  1004
spot); renamed link color from "darkblue" to "linkcolor" (default
wenzelm@26920
  1005
value unchanged, can be redefined via \definecolor); no longer sets

  1006
"a4paper" option (unnecessary or even intrusive).

wenzelm@27008
  1009
method (either a method name or a method name plus (optional) method
wenzelm@27008
  1010

* New primrec package.  Specification syntax conforms in style to
wenzelm@27067
  1016
definition/function/....  No separate induction rule is provided.  The
wenzelm@27067
  1017
"primrec" command distinguishes old-style and new-style specifications
wenzelm@27067
  1018
by syntax.  The former primrec package is now named OldPrimrecPackage.
wenzelm@27067
  1019
When adjusting theories, beware: constants stemming from new-style

primrec specifications have authentic syntax.

wenzelm@27067
  1023
with multithreading.
wenzelm@27067

wenzelm@27067
  1025
* Metis: the maximum number of clauses that can be produced from a
wenzelm@27067
  1026

wenzelm@27067
  1027
exceed this number are ignored, with a warning printed.

* Sledgehammer no longer produces structured proofs by default. To
wenzelm@27067
  1030

wenzelm@27067
  1031
reconstruction_modulus, reconstruction_sorts renamed

* Method "induct_scheme" derives user-specified induction rules
wenzelm@27067
  1035
from well-founded induction and completeness of patterns. This factors
wenzelm@27067
  1036
out some operations that are done internally by the function package
wenzelm@27067
  1037
and makes them available separately.  See
wenzelm@27067

* More flexible generation of measure functions for termination
wenzelm@27067
  1041
proofs: Measure functions can be declared by proving a rule of the
wenzelm@27067
  1042
form "is_measure f" and giving it the [measure_function] attribute.
wenzelm@27067
  1043
The "is_measure" predicate is logically meaningless (always true), and
wenzelm@27067
  1044
just guides the heuristic.  To find suitable measure functions, the
wenzelm@27067
  1045
termination prover sets up the goal "is_measure ?f" of the appropriate
wenzelm@27067
  1046
type and generates all solutions by prolog-style backwards proof using
wenzelm@27067
  1047
the declared rules.
wenzelm@27067
  1048
wenzelm@27067
  1049
This setup also deals with rules like 
wenzelm@27067
  1050
wenzelm@27067

  1063
  - Some definitions of overloaded operators on sets can now be proved
wenzelm@27008
  1064
    using the definitions of the operators on => and bool.  Therefore,
wenzelm@27008
  1065
    the following theorems have been renamed:

  - Due to the incompleteness of the HO unification algorithm, some
berghofe@26964

  1133
and "Cons".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@26874
  1134

  1136
Potential INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@26422

wenzelm@26180
  1165
operator BIT and the bit datatype with constructors B0 and B1 have
wenzelm@26180
  1166
disappeared.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use "Int.Bit0 x" and "Int.Bit1 y" in

  1257
* The ``print mode'' is now a thread-local value derived from a global
wenzelm@25737
  1258
template (the former print_mode reference), thus access becomes
wenzelm@25737
  1259
non-critical.  The global print_mode reference is for session

  1326
wenzelm@22871
  1327
* Theory syntax: some popular names (e.g. 'class', 'declaration',
wenzelm@22871
  1328
'fun', 'help', 'if') are now keywords.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use double
wenzelm@22871
  1329
quotes.
wenzelm@19814
  1330
wenzelm@23888
  1331
* Theory loader: be more serious about observing the static theory
wenzelm@23888
  1332
header specifications (including optional directories), but not the
wenzelm@24172
  1333
accidental file locations of previously successful loads.  The strict
wenzelm@24172
  1334
update policy of former update_thy is now already performed by
wenzelm@24172
  1335
use_thy, so the former has been removed; use_thys updates several
wenzelm@24172
  1336
theories simultaneously, just as 'imports' within a theory header
wenzelm@24172
  1337
specification, but without merging the results.  Potential
wenzelm@24172
  1338
INCOMPATIBILITY: may need to refine theory headers and commands
wenzelm@24172
  1339
ROOT.ML which depend on load order.
wenzelm@23888
  1340
wenzelm@23888
  1341
* Theory loader: optional support for content-based file
wenzelm@23888
  1342
identification, instead of the traditional scheme of full physical
wenzelm@23889
  1343
path plus date stamp; configured by the ISABELLE_FILE_IDENT setting
wenzelm@23888
  1344
(cf. the system manual).  The new scheme allows to work with
wenzelm@23888
  1345
non-finished theories in persistent session images, such that source
wenzelm@23888
  1346
files may be moved later on without requiring reloads.
wenzelm@23888
  1347
wenzelm@24187
  1348
* Theory loader: old-style ML proof scripts being *attached* to a thy
wenzelm@24187
  1349
file (with the same base name as the theory) are considered a legacy
wenzelm@24800
  1350
feature, which will disappear eventually. Even now, the theory loader
wenzelm@24800
  1351
no longer maintains dependencies on such files.
wenzelm@24800
  1352
wenzelm@24800
  1353
* Syntax: the scope for resolving ambiguities via type-inference is
wenzelm@24800
  1354
now limited to individual terms, instead of whole simultaneous
wenzelm@24234
  1355
specifications as before. This greatly reduces the complexity of the
wenzelm@24234
  1356
syntax module and improves flexibility by separating parsing and
wenzelm@24234
  1357
type-checking. INCOMPATIBILITY: additional type-constraints (explicit
wenzelm@24234
  1358
'fixes' etc.) are required in rare situations.
wenzelm@24234
  1359
wenzelm@25034
  1360
* Syntax: constants introduced by new-style packages ('definition',
wenzelm@25034
  1361
'abbreviation' etc.) are passed through the syntax module in
wenzelm@25034
  1362
``authentic mode''. This means that associated mixfix annotations
wenzelm@25034
  1363
really stick to such constants, independently of potential name space
wenzelm@25034
  1364
ambiguities introduced later on. INCOMPATIBILITY: constants in parse
wenzelm@25034
  1365
trees are represented slightly differently, may need to adapt syntax
wenzelm@25034
  1366
translations accordingly. Use CONST marker in 'translations' and
wenzelm@25034
  1367
@{const_syntax} antiquotation in 'parse_translation' etc.
wenzelm@25034
  1368
wenzelm@17981
  1369
* Legacy goal package: reduced interface to the bare minimum required
wenzelm@17981
  1370
to keep existing proof scripts running.  Most other user-level
wenzelm@17981
  1371
functions are now part of the OldGoals structure, which is *not* open
wenzelm@17981
  1372
by default (consider isatool expandshort before open OldGoals).
wenzelm@17981
  1373
Removed top_sg, prin, printyp, pprint_term/typ altogether, because
wenzelm@17981
  1374
these tend to cause confusion about the actual goal (!) context being
wenzelm@17981
  1375
used here, which is not necessarily the same as the_context().
wenzelm@17918
  1376
wenzelm@23379
  1377
* Command 'find_theorems': supports "*" wild-card in "name:"
wenzelm@23379
  1378
criterion; "with_dups" option.  Certain ProofGeneral versions might
wenzelm@23379
  1379
support a specific search form (see ProofGeneral/CHANGES).
webertj@22965
  1380
wenzelm@20370
  1381
* The ``prems limit'' option (cf. ProofContext.prems_limit) is now -1
wenzelm@20370
  1382
by default, which means that "prems" (and also "fixed variables") are
wenzelm@20370
  1383
suppressed from proof state output.  Note that the ProofGeneral
wenzelm@20370
  1384
settings mechanism allows to change and save options persistently, but
wenzelm@20370
  1385
older versions of Isabelle will fail to start up if a negative prems
wenzelm@20370
  1386
limit is imposed.
wenzelm@20370
  1387
wenzelm@21308
  1388
* Local theory targets may be specified by non-nested blocks of
wenzelm@21308
  1389
``context/locale/class ... begin'' followed by ``end''.  The body may
wenzelm@21308
  1390
contain definitions, theorems etc., including any derived mechanism
wenzelm@21308
  1391
that has been implemented on top of these primitives.  This concept
wenzelm@21308
  1392
generalizes the existing ``theorem (in ...)'' towards more versatility
wenzelm@21308
  1393
and scalability.
wenzelm@21308
  1394
wenzelm@21960
  1395
* Proof General interface: proper undo of final 'end' command;
wenzelm@21960
  1396
discontinued Isabelle/classic mode (ML proof scripts).

*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@17865
  1400
wenzelm@21717
  1401
* Added antiquotation @{theory name} which prints the given name,
wenzelm@21717
  1402
after checking that it refers to a valid ancestor theory in the
wenzelm@21717
  1403
current context.
haftmann@21339
  1404
wenzelm@17869
  1405
* Added antiquotations @{ML_type text} and @{ML_struct text} which
wenzelm@17869
  1406
check the given source text as ML type/structure, printing verbatim.
wenzelm@17865
  1407
wenzelm@21717
  1408
* Added antiquotation @{abbrev "c args"} which prints the abbreviation
wenzelm@21717
  1409
"c args == rhs" given in the current context.  (Any number of
wenzelm@21735
  1410
arguments may be given on the LHS.)

* The 'class' package offers a combination of axclass and locale to
wenzelm@25129
  1416
achieve Haskell-like type classes in Isabelle.  Definitions and
wenzelm@25129
  1417
theorems within a class context produce both relative results (with
wenzelm@25129
  1418
implicit parameters according to the locale context), and polymorphic
wenzelm@25129
  1419
constants with qualified polymorphism (according to the class
wenzelm@25129
  1420
context).  Within the body context of a 'class' target, a separate
wenzelm@25129
  1421
syntax layer ("user space type system") takes care of converting
wenzelm@25129
  1422
between global polymorphic consts and internal locale representation.

* Generic code generator framework allows to generate executable
wenzelm@24800
  1427
code for ML and Haskell (including Isabelle classes).  A short usage
wenzelm@24800
  1428
sketch:
haftmann@20188
  1429
haftmann@20188
  1430
    internal compilation:
haftmann@25199
  1431
        export_code <list of constants (term syntax)> in SML
haftmann@20453
  1432
    writing SML code to a file:
haftmann@25199
  1433
        export_code <list of constants (term syntax)> in SML <filename>
haftmann@22735
  1434
    writing OCaml code to a file:
haftmann@25199
  1435
        export_code <list of constants (term syntax)> in OCaml <filename>
haftmann@20188
  1436
    writing Haskell code to a bunch of files:

    evaluating closed propositions to True/False using code generation:
haftmann@25184
  1440
        method ``eval''
haftmann@25184
  1441
haftmann@25184
  1442
Reasonable default setup of framework in HOL.
haftmann@20453
  1443
haftmann@20453
  1444
Theorem attributs for selecting and transforming function equations theorems:
haftmann@20453
  1445
haftmann@22845
  1446
    [code fun]:        select a theorem as function equation for a specific constant
haftmann@22845
  1447
    [code fun del]:    deselect a theorem as function equation for a specific constant
haftmann@22845
  1448
    [code inline]:     select an equation theorem for unfolding (inlining) in place
haftmann@22845
  1449
    [code inline del]: deselect an equation theorem for unfolding (inlining) in place
haftmann@20453
  1450
haftmann@22735
  1451
User-defined serializations (target in {SML, OCaml, Haskell}):
haftmann@20453
  1452
haftmann@20453
  1453
    code_const <and-list of constants (term syntax)>
haftmann@20453
  1454
      {(target) <and-list of const target syntax>}+
haftmann@20453
  1455
haftmann@20453
  1456
    code_type <and-list of type constructors>
haftmann@20453
  1457
      {(target) <and-list of type target syntax>}+
haftmann@20453
  1458
haftmann@20453
  1459
    code_instance <and-list of instances>
haftmann@20453
  1460
      {(target)}+
haftmann@20453
  1461
        where instance ::= <type constructor> :: <class>
haftmann@20453
  1462
haftmann@20453
  1463
    code_class <and_list of classes>
haftmann@20453
  1464
      {(target) <and-list of class target syntax>}+
haftmann@20453
  1465
        where class target syntax ::= <class name> {where {<classop> == <target syntax>}+}?
haftmann@20453
  1466
haftmann@25199
  1467
code_instance and code_class only are effective to target Haskell.
haftmann@22735
  1468
wenzelm@25177
  1469
For example usage see src/HOL/ex/Codegenerator.thy and
wenzelm@25177
  1470
src/HOL/ex/Codegenerator_Pretty.thy.  A separate tutorial on code
wenzelm@24800
  1471
generation from Isabelle/HOL theories is available via "isatool doc
wenzelm@24800
  1472

haftmann@20188
  1473
wenzelm@25129
  1474
* Code generator: consts in 'consts_code' Isar commands are now
wenzelm@25129
  1475
referred to by usual term syntax (including optional type
wenzelm@25129
  1476
annotations).
wenzelm@25129
  1477
wenzelm@19254
  1478
* Command 'no_translations' removes translation rules from theory
wenzelm@19254
  1479
syntax.
wenzelm@19254
  1480
wenzelm@19625
  1481
* Overloaded definitions are now actually checked for acyclic
wenzelm@19714
  1482
dependencies.  The overloading scheme is slightly more general than
wenzelm@19714
  1483
that of Haskell98, although Isabelle does not demand an exact
wenzelm@19714
  1484
correspondence to type class and instance declarations.
wenzelm@19714
  1485
INCOMPATIBILITY, use ``defs (unchecked overloaded)'' to admit more
wenzelm@19714
  1486
exotic versions of overloading -- at the discretion of the user!
wenzelm@19711
  1487
wenzelm@19711
  1488
Polymorphic constants are represented via type arguments, i.e. the
wenzelm@19711
  1489
instantiation that matches an instance against the most general
wenzelm@19711
  1490
declaration given in the signature.  For example, with the declaration
wenzelm@19711
  1491
c :: 'a => 'a => 'a, an instance c :: nat => nat => nat is represented
wenzelm@19711
  1492
as c(nat).  Overloading is essentially simultaneous structural
wenzelm@19711
  1493
recursion over such type arguments.  Incomplete specification patterns
wenzelm@19714
  1494
impose global constraints on all occurrences, e.g. c('a * 'a) on the
wenzelm@19715
  1495
LHS means that more general c('a * 'b) will be disallowed on any RHS.
wenzelm@19714
  1496
Command 'print_theory' outputs the normalized system of recursive
wenzelm@19714
  1497
equations, see section "definitions".
wenzelm@19625
  1498
wenzelm@24086
  1499
* Configuration options are maintained within the theory or proof
wenzelm@24086
  1500
context (with name and type bool/int/string), providing a very simple
wenzelm@24086
  1501
interface to a poor-man's version of general context data.  Tools may
wenzelm@24110
  1502
declare options in ML (e.g. using Attrib.config_int) and then refer to
wenzelm@24110
  1503
these values using Config.get etc.  Users may change options via an
wenzelm@24110
  1504
associated attribute of the same name.  This form of context
wenzelm@24110
  1505
declaration works particularly well with commands 'declare' or
wenzelm@24110
  1506
'using', for example ``declare [[foo = 42]]''.  Thus it has become
wenzelm@24110
  1507
very easy to avoid global references, which would not observe Isar
wenzelm@24110
  1508
toplevel undo/redo and fail to work with multithreading.
wenzelm@24086
  1509
wenzelm@24172
  1510
Various global ML references of Pure and HOL have been turned into
wenzelm@24172
  1511
configuration options:
wenzelm@24172

  1522
wenzelm@24086
  1523
* Named collections of theorems may be easily installed as context
wenzelm@24800
  1524
data using the functor NamedThmsFun (see also
wenzelm@24086
  1525
src/Pure/Tools/named_thms.ML).  The user may add or delete facts via
wenzelm@24110
  1526
attributes; there is also a toplevel print command.  This facility is
wenzelm@24110
  1527
just a common case of general context data, which is the preferred way
wenzelm@24110
  1528
for anything more complex than just a list of facts in canonical
wenzelm@24110
  1529
order.
wenzelm@24086
  1530
wenzelm@24032
  1531
* Isar: command 'declaration' augments a local theory by generic
wenzelm@24032
  1532
declaration functions written in ML.  This enables arbitrary content
wenzelm@24032
  1533
being added to the context, depending on a morphism that tells the
wenzelm@24032
  1534
difference of the original declaration context wrt. the application
wenzelm@24032
  1535
context encountered later on.
wenzelm@24032
  1536
wenzelm@24032
  1537
* Isar: proper interfaces for simplification procedures.  Command
wenzelm@24032
  1538
'simproc_setup' declares named simprocs (with match patterns, and body
wenzelm@24032
  1539
text in ML).  Attribute "simproc" adds/deletes simprocs in the current
wenzelm@24032
  1540
context.  ML antiquotation @{simproc name} retrieves named simprocs.
wenzelm@24032
  1541
wenzelm@24032
  1542
* Isar: an extra pair of brackets around attribute declarations
wenzelm@24032
  1543
abbreviates a theorem reference involving an internal dummy fact,
wenzelm@24032
  1544
which will be ignored later --- only the effect of the attribute on
wenzelm@24032
  1545
the background context will persist.  This form of in-place
wenzelm@24032
  1546
declarations is particularly useful with commands like 'declare' and
wenzelm@24032
  1547
'using', for example ``have A using [[simproc a]] by simp''.
wenzelm@24032
  1548
wenzelm@23369
  1549
* Isar: method "assumption" (and implicit closing of subproofs) now
wenzelm@23369
  1550
takes simple non-atomic goal assumptions into account: after applying
wenzelm@23369
  1551
an assumption as a rule the resulting subgoals are solved by atomic
wenzelm@23369
  1552
assumption steps.  This is particularly useful to finish 'obtain'
wenzelm@23369
  1553
goals, such as "!!x. (!!x. P x ==> thesis) ==> P x ==> thesis",
wenzelm@23369
  1554
without referring to the original premise "!!x. P x ==> thesis" in the
wenzelm@23369
  1555
Isar proof context.  POTENTIAL INCOMPATIBILITY: method "assumption" is
wenzelm@23369
  1556
more permissive.
wenzelm@23369
  1557
wenzelm@23369
  1558
* Isar: implicit use of prems from the Isar proof context is
wenzelm@23369
  1559
considered a legacy feature.  Common applications like ``have A .''
wenzelm@23369
  1560
may be replaced by ``have A by fact'' or ``note `A`''.  In general,
wenzelm@23369
  1561
referencing facts explicitly here improves readability and
wenzelm@23369
  1562
maintainability of proof texts.
wenzelm@23369
  1563
wenzelm@17865
  1564
* Isar: improper proof element 'guess' is like 'obtain', but derives
wenzelm@17865
  1565
the obtained context from the course of reasoning!  For example:
wenzelm@17865
  1566
wenzelm@17865
  1567
  assume "EX x y. A x & B y"   -- "any previous fact"
wenzelm@17865
  1568
  then guess x and y by clarify
wenzelm@17865
  1569
wenzelm@17865
  1570
This technique is potentially adventurous, depending on the facts and
wenzelm@17865
  1571
proof tools being involved here.
wenzelm@17865
  1572
wenzelm@18020
  1573
* Isar: known facts from the proof context may be specified as literal
wenzelm@18020
  1574
propositions, using ASCII back-quote syntax.  This works wherever
wenzelm@18020
  1575
named facts used to be allowed so far, in proof commands, proof
wenzelm@18020
  1576
methods, attributes etc.  Literal facts are retrieved from the context
wenzelm@18020
  1577
according to unification of type and term parameters.  For example,
wenzelm@18020
  1578
provided that "A" and "A ==> B" and "!!x. P x ==> Q x" are known
wenzelm@18020
  1579
theorems in the current context, then these are valid literal facts:
wenzelm@18020
  1580
`A` and `A ==> B` and `!!x. P x ==> Q x" as well as `P a ==> Q a` etc.
wenzelm@18020
  1581
wenzelm@18020
  1582
There is also a proof method "fact" which does the same composition
wenzelm@18044
  1583
for explicit goal states, e.g. the following proof texts coincide with
wenzelm@18044
  1584
certain special cases of literal facts:
wenzelm@18020
  1585
wenzelm@18020
  1586
  have "A" by fact                 ==  note `A`

  have "A ==> B" by fact           ==  note `A ==> B`
wenzelm@18020
  1588
  have "!!x. P x ==> Q x" by fact  ==  note `!!x. P x ==> Q x`
wenzelm@18020

wenzelm@18020
  1590
wenzelm@20118
  1591
* Isar: ":" (colon) is no longer a symbolic identifier character in
wenzelm@20118
  1592
outer syntax.  Thus symbolic identifiers may be used without
wenzelm@20118
  1593
additional white space in declarations like this: ``assume *: A''.
wenzelm@20118
  1594
wenzelm@20013
  1595
* Isar: 'print_facts' prints all local facts of the current context,
wenzelm@20013
  1596
both named and unnamed ones.
wenzelm@20013
  1597
wenzelm@18308
  1598
* Isar: 'def' now admits simultaneous definitions, e.g.:
wenzelm@18308
  1599
wenzelm@18308
  1600
  def x == "t" and y == "u"
wenzelm@18308
  1601
wenzelm@18540
  1602
* Isar: added command 'unfolding', which is structurally similar to
wenzelm@18540
  1603
'using', but affects both the goal state and facts by unfolding given
wenzelm@18815
  1604
rewrite rules.  Thus many occurrences of the 'unfold' method or
wenzelm@18540
  1605
'unfolded' attribute may be replaced by first-class proof text.
wenzelm@18540
  1606
wenzelm@18815
  1607
* Isar: methods 'unfold' / 'fold', attributes 'unfolded' / 'folded',
wenzelm@18815
  1608
and command 'unfolding' now all support object-level equalities
wenzelm@18815
  1609
(potentially conditional).  The underlying notion of rewrite rule is
wenzelm@18815
  1610
analogous to the 'rule_format' attribute, but *not* that of the
wenzelm@18815
  1611
Simplifier (which is usually more generous).
wenzelm@18815
  1612
kleing@24238
  1613
* Isar: the new attribute [rotated n] (default n = 1) rotates the
kleing@24238
  1614
premises of a theorem by n. Useful in conjunction with drule.
kleing@24238
  1615
wenzelm@19220
  1616
* Isar: the goal restriction operator [N] (default N = 1) evaluates a
wenzelm@19220
  1617
method expression within a sandbox consisting of the first N
wenzelm@19240
  1618
sub-goals, which need to exist.  For example, ``simp_all [3]''
wenzelm@19240
  1619
simplifies the first three sub-goals, while (rule foo, simp_all)[]
wenzelm@19240
  1620
simplifies all new goals that emerge from applying rule foo to the
wenzelm@19240
  1621
originally first one.
wenzelm@19220
  1622
wenzelm@19814
  1623
* Isar: schematic goals are no longer restricted to higher-order
wenzelm@19814
  1624
patterns; e.g. ``lemma "?P(?x)" by (rule TrueI)'' now works as
wenzelm@19814
  1625
expected.
wenzelm@19814
  1626
wenzelm@18901
  1627
* Isar: the conclusion of a long theorem statement is now either
wenzelm@18901
  1628
'shows' (a simultaneous conjunction, as before), or 'obtains'
wenzelm@18901
  1629
(essentially a disjunction of cases with local parameters and
wenzelm@18901
  1630
assumptions).  The latter allows to express general elimination rules
wenzelm@18910
  1631
adequately; in this notation common elimination rules look like this:
wenzelm@18901
  1632
wenzelm@18901
  1633
  lemma exE:    -- "EX x. P x ==> (!!x. P x ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1634
    assumes "EX x. P x"
wenzelm@18901
  1635
    obtains x where "P x"
wenzelm@18901
  1636
wenzelm@18901
  1637
  lemma conjE:  -- "A & B ==> (A ==> B ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1638
    assumes "A & B"
wenzelm@18901
  1639
    obtains A and B
wenzelm@18901
  1640
wenzelm@18901
  1641
  lemma disjE:  -- "A | B ==> (A ==> thesis) ==> (B ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1642
    assumes "A | B"
wenzelm@18901
  1643
    obtains
wenzelm@18901
  1644
      A
wenzelm@18901
  1645
    | B
wenzelm@18901
  1646
wenzelm@18910
  1647
The subsequent classical rules even refer to the formal "thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1648
explicitly:
wenzelm@18901
  1649
wenzelm@18901
  1650
  lemma classical:     -- "(~ thesis ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1651
    obtains "~ thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1652
wenzelm@18910
  1653
  lemma Peirce's_Law:  -- "((thesis ==> something) ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18910
  1654
    obtains "thesis ==> something"
wenzelm@18901
  1655
wenzelm@18901
  1656
The actual proof of an 'obtains' statement is analogous to that of the
wenzelm@18910
  1657
Isar proof element 'obtain', only that there may be several cases.
wenzelm@18910
  1658
Optional case names may be specified in parentheses; these will be
wenzelm@18910
  1659
available both in the present proof and as annotations in the
wenzelm@18910
  1660
resulting rule, for later use with the 'cases' method (cf. attribute
wenzelm@18910
  1661
case_names).
wenzelm@18901
  1662
wenzelm@21447
  1663
* Isar: the assumptions of a long theorem statement are available as
wenzelm@21447
  1664
"assms" fact in the proof context.  This is more appropriate than the
wenzelm@21447
  1665
(historical) "prems", which refers to all assumptions of the current
wenzelm@21447
  1666
context, including those from the target locale, proof body etc.
wenzelm@21447
  1667
wenzelm@19263
  1668
* Isar: 'print_statement' prints theorems from the current theory or
wenzelm@19263
  1669
proof context in long statement form, according to the syntax of a
wenzelm@19263
  1670
top-level lemma.
wenzelm@19263
  1671
wenzelm@18901
  1672
* Isar: 'obtain' takes an optional case name for the local context
wenzelm@18901
  1673
introduction rule (default "that").
wenzelm@18901
  1674
wenzelm@19587
  1675
* Isar: removed obsolete 'concl is' patterns.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use
wenzelm@19587
  1676
explicit (is "_ ==> ?foo") in the rare cases where this still happens
wenzelm@19587
  1677
to occur.
wenzelm@19587
  1678
wenzelm@19682
  1679
* Pure: syntax "CONST name" produces a fully internalized constant
wenzelm@19682
  1680
according to the current context.  This is particularly useful for
wenzelm@19682
  1681
syntax translations that should refer to internal constant
wenzelm@19682
  1682
representations independently of name spaces.
wenzelm@19682
  1683
wenzelm@21537
  1684
* Pure: syntax constant for foo (binder "FOO ") is called "foo_binder"
wenzelm@21537
  1685
instead of "FOO ". This allows multiple binder declarations to coexist
wenzelm@21537
  1686
in the same context.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@21537
  1687
wenzelm@21209
  1688
* Isar/locales: 'notation' provides a robust interface to the 'syntax'
wenzelm@21209
  1689
primitive that also works in a locale context (both for constants and
wenzelm@24950
  1690
fixed variables). Type declaration and internal syntactic representation
wenzelm@24950
  1691
of given constants retrieved from the context. Likewise, the
wenzelm@24950
  1692
'no_notation' command allows to remove given syntax annotations from the
wenzelm@24950
  1693
current context.
wenzelm@19682
  1694
wenzelm@19665
  1695
* Isar/locales: new derived specification elements 'axiomatization',
wenzelm@19665
  1696
'definition', 'abbreviation', which support type-inference, admit
wenzelm@19083
  1697
object-level specifications (equality, equivalence).  See also the
wenzelm@19083
  1698
isar-ref manual.  Examples:
wenzelm@19081
  1699
wenzelm@19665
  1700
  axiomatization
wenzelm@21595
  1701
    eq  (infix "===" 50) where
wenzelm@21595
  1702
    eq_refl: "x === x" and eq_subst: "x === y ==> P x ==> P y"
wenzelm@21595
  1703
wenzelm@21595
  1704
  definition "f x y = x + y + 1"
wenzelm@21595
  1705
  definition g where "g x = f x x"
wenzelm@19081
  1706
wenzelm@19363
  1707
  abbreviation
wenzelm@21595
  1708
    neq  (infix "=!=" 50) where
wenzelm@19363
  1709
    "x =!= y == ~ (x === y)"
wenzelm@19081
  1710
wenzelm@19083
  1711
These specifications may be also used in a locale context.  Then the
wenzelm@19083
  1712
constants being introduced depend on certain fixed parameters, and the
wenzelm@19083
  1713
constant name is qualified by the locale base name.  An internal
wenzelm@19083
  1714
abbreviation takes care for convenient input and output, making the
wenzelm@19088
  1715
parameters implicit and using the original short name.  See also
wenzelm@25177
  1716
src/HOL/ex/Abstract_NAT.thy for an example of deriving polymorphic
wenzelm@19083
  1717
entities from a monomorphic theory.
wenzelm@19083
  1718
wenzelm@19083
  1719
Presently, abbreviations are only available 'in' a target locale, but
wenzelm@19363
  1720
not inherited by general import expressions.  Also note that
wenzelm@19363
  1721
'abbreviation' may be used as a type-safe replacement for 'syntax' +
wenzelm@24735
  1722
'translations' in common applications.  The "no_abbrevs" print mode
wenzelm@24735
  1723
prevents folding of abbreviations in term output.
wenzelm@19084
  1724
wenzelm@19682
  1725
Concrete syntax is attached to specified constants in internal form,
wenzelm@19682
  1726
independently of name spaces.  The parse tree representation is
wenzelm@21209
  1727
slightly different -- use 'notation' instead of raw 'syntax', and
wenzelm@19682
  1728
'translations' with explicit "CONST" markup to accommodate this.
wenzelm@19665
  1729
wenzelm@24800
  1730
* Pure/Isar: unified syntax for new-style specification mechanisms
wenzelm@24800
  1731
(e.g.  'definition', 'abbreviation', or 'inductive' in HOL) admits
wenzelm@24800
  1732
full type inference and dummy patterns ("_").  For example:
wenzelm@24735
  1733
wenzelm@24735
  1734
  definition "K x _ = x"
wenzelm@24735
  1735
wenzelm@24738
  1736
  inductive conj for A B
wenzelm@24738
  1737
  where "A ==> B ==> conj A B"
wenzelm@24738
  1738
wenzelm@21735
  1739
* Pure: command 'print_abbrevs' prints all constant abbreviations of
wenzelm@21735
  1740
the current context.  Print mode "no_abbrevs" prevents inversion of
wenzelm@21735
  1741
abbreviations on output.
wenzelm@21735
  1742
wenzelm@24800
  1743
* Isar/locales: improved parameter handling: use of locales "var" and
wenzelm@24800
  1744
"struct" no longer necessary; - parameter renamings are no longer
wenzelm@24800
  1745
required to be injective.  For example, this allows to define
wenzelm@24800
  1746
endomorphisms as locale endom = homom mult mult h.
ballarin@19783
  1747
ballarin@19931
  1748
* Isar/locales: changed the way locales with predicates are defined.
ballarin@19931
  1749
Instead of accumulating the specification, the imported expression is
wenzelm@22126
  1750
now an interpretation.  INCOMPATIBILITY: different normal form of
wenzelm@22126
  1751
locale expressions.  In particular, in interpretations of locales with
wenzelm@22126
  1752
predicates, goals repesenting already interpreted fragments are not
wenzelm@22126
  1753
removed automatically.  Use methods `intro_locales' and
wenzelm@22126
  1754
`unfold_locales'; see below.
wenzelm@22126
  1755
wenzelm@22126
  1756
* Isar/locales: new methods `intro_locales' and `unfold_locales'
wenzelm@22126
  1757
provide backward reasoning on locales predicates.  The methods are
wenzelm@22126
  1758
aware of interpretations and discharge corresponding goals.
wenzelm@22126
  1759
`intro_locales' is less aggressive then `unfold_locales' and does not
wenzelm@22126
  1760
unfold predicates to assumptions.
ballarin@19931
  1761
ballarin@19931
  1762
* Isar/locales: the order in which locale fragments are accumulated
wenzelm@22126
  1763
has changed.  This enables to override declarations from fragments due
wenzelm@22126
  1764
to interpretations -- for example, unwanted simp rules.
ballarin@19931
  1765
ballarin@23920
  1766
* Isar/locales: interpretation in theories and proof contexts has been
ballarin@23920
  1767
extended.  One may now specify (and prove) equations, which are
ballarin@23920
  1768
unfolded in interpreted theorems.  This is useful for replacing
ballarin@23920
  1769
defined concepts (constants depending on locale parameters) by
ballarin@23920
  1770
concepts already existing in the target context.  Example:
ballarin@23920
  1771
ballarin@23920
  1772
  interpretation partial_order ["op <= :: [int, int] => bool"]
ballarin@23920
  1773
    where "partial_order.less (op <=) (x::int) y = (x < y)"
ballarin@23920
  1774
wenzelm@24800
  1775
Typically, the constant `partial_order.less' is created by a
wenzelm@24800
  1776
definition specification element in the context of locale
wenzelm@24800
  1777
partial_order.
wenzelm@24800
  1778
wenzelm@24859
  1779
* Method "induct": improved internal context management to support
wenzelm@24800
  1780
local fixes and defines on-the-fly. Thus explicit meta-level
wenzelm@24800
  1781
connectives !!  and ==> are rarely required anymore in inductive goals
wenzelm@24800
  1782
(using object-logic connectives for this purpose has been long
wenzelm@24800
  1783
obsolete anyway). Common proof patterns are explained in
wenzelm@25177
  1784
src/HOL/Induct/Common_Patterns.thy, see also
wenzelm@25177
  1785
src/HOL/Isar_examples/Puzzle.thy and src/HOL/Lambda for realistic
wenzelm@25177
  1786
examples.
wenzelm@24606
  1787
wenzelm@24859
  1788
* Method "induct": improved handling of simultaneous goals. Instead of
wenzelm@24606
  1789
introducing object-level conjunction, the statement is now split into
wenzelm@24606
  1790
several conclusions, while the corresponding symbolic cases are nested
wenzelm@24606
  1791
accordingly. INCOMPATIBILITY, proofs need to be structured explicitly,
wenzelm@25177
  1792
see src/HOL/Induct/Common_Patterns.thy, for example.
wenzelm@24606
  1793
wenzelm@24859
  1794
* Method "induct": mutual induction rules are now specified as a list
wenzelm@24800
  1795
of rule sharing the same induction cases. HOL packages usually provide
wenzelm@24606
  1796
foo_bar.inducts for mutually defined items foo and bar (e.g. inductive
wenzelm@24859
  1797
predicates/sets or datatypes). INCOMPATIBILITY, users need to specify
wenzelm@24859
  1798
mutual induction rules differently, i.e. like this:
wenzelm@18506
  1799
wenzelm@18506
  1800
  (induct rule: foo_bar.inducts)
wenzelm@18506
  1801
  (induct set: foo bar)
wenzelm@24859
  1802
  (induct pred: foo bar)
wenzelm@18506
  1803
  (induct type: foo bar)
wenzelm@18506
  1804
wenzelm@18506
  1805
The ML function ProjectRule.projections turns old-style rules into the
wenzelm@18506
  1806
new format.
wenzelm@18506
  1807
wenzelm@24859
  1808
* Method "coinduct": dual of induction, see
wenzelm@18399
  1809
src/HOL/Library/Coinductive_List.thy for various examples.
wenzelm@18399
  1810
wenzelm@24859
  1811
* Method "cases", "induct", "coinduct": the ``(open)'' option is
wenzelm@24859
  1812
considered a legacy feature.
wenzelm@24859
  1813
wenzelm@20919
  1814
* Attribute "symmetric" produces result with standardized schematic
wenzelm@20919
  1815
variables (index 0).  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@20919
  1816
wenzelm@22126
  1817
* Simplifier: by default the simplifier trace only shows top level
wenzelm@22126
  1818
rewrites now. That is, trace_simp_depth_limit is set to 1 by
wenzelm@22126
  1819
default. Thus there is less danger of being flooded by the trace. The
wenzelm@22126
  1820
trace indicates where parts have been suppressed.
nipkow@18674
  1821
  
wenzelm@18536
  1822
* Provers/classical: removed obsolete classical version of elim_format
wenzelm@18536
  1823
attribute; classical elim/dest rules are now treated uniformly when
wenzelm@18536
  1824
manipulating the claset.
wenzelm@18536
  1825
wenzelm@18694
  1826
* Provers/classical: stricter checks to ensure that supplied intro,
wenzelm@18694
  1827
dest and elim rules are well-formed; dest and elim rules must have at
wenzelm@18694
  1828
least one premise.
wenzelm@18694
  1829
wenzelm@18694
  1830
* Provers/classical: attributes dest/elim/intro take an optional
wenzelm@18695
  1831
weight argument for the rule (just as the Pure versions).  Weights are
wenzelm@18696
  1832
ignored by automated tools, but determine the search order of single
wenzelm@18694
  1833
rule steps.
paulson@18557
  1834
wenzelm@18536
  1835
* Syntax: input syntax now supports dummy variable binding "%_. b",
wenzelm@18536
  1836
where the body does not mention the bound variable.  Note that dummy
wenzelm@18536
  1837
patterns implicitly depend on their context of bounds, which makes
wenzelm@18536
  1838
"{_. _}" match any set comprehension as expected.  Potential
wenzelm@18536
  1839
INCOMPATIBILITY -- parse translations need to cope with syntactic
wenzelm@18536
  1840
constant "_idtdummy" in the binding position.
wenzelm@18536
  1841
wenzelm@18536
  1842
* Syntax: removed obsolete syntactic constant "_K" and its associated
wenzelm@18536
  1843
parse translation.  INCOMPATIBILITY -- use dummy abstraction instead,
wenzelm@18536
  1844
for example "A -> B" => "Pi A (%_. B)".
wenzelm@17779
  1845
wenzelm@20582
  1846
* Pure: 'class_deps' command visualizes the subclass relation, using
wenzelm@20582
  1847
the graph browser tool.
wenzelm@20582
  1848
wenzelm@24800
  1849
* Pure: 'print_theory' now suppresses certain internal declarations by

default; use '!' option for full details.

* New constant "undefined" with axiom "undefined x = undefined".
haftmann@25184
  1874
haftmann@25184
  1875
* Added class "HOL.eq", allowing for code generation with polymorphic

haftmann@25184
  1877
haftmann@25184

  1902
INCOMPATIBILITY.  Adaptions may be required in the following cases:
haftmann@25184
  1903
haftmann@25184
  1904
a) User-defined constants using any of the names "plus", "minus",
haftmann@25184
  1905
"times", "less" or "less_eq". The standard syntax translations for
haftmann@25184
  1906
"+", "-" and "*" may go wrong.  INCOMPATIBILITY: use more specific
haftmann@25184
  1907
names.
haftmann@25184
  1908
haftmann@25184
  1909
b) Variables named "plus", "minus", "times", "less", "less_eq"
haftmann@25184
  1910
INCOMPATIBILITY: use more specific names.
haftmann@25184
  1911
haftmann@25184
  1912
c) Permutative equations (e.g. "a + b = b + a")
haftmann@25184
  1913
Since the change of names also changes the order of terms, permutative
haftmann@25184
  1914
rewrite rules may get applied in a different order. Experience shows
haftmann@25184
  1915
that this is rarely the case (only two adaptions in the whole Isabelle
haftmann@25184
  1916
distribution).  INCOMPATIBILITY: rewrite proofs
haftmann@25184
  1917
haftmann@25184
  1918
d) ML code directly refering to constant names
haftmann@25184
  1919
This in general only affects hand-written proof tactics, simprocs and
haftmann@25184
  1920
so on.  INCOMPATIBILITY: grep your sourcecode and replace names.
haftmann@25184
  1921
Consider using @{const_name} antiquotation.
haftmann@25184
  1922
haftmann@25184
  1923
* New class "default" with associated constant "default".
haftmann@25184
  1924
haftmann@25184
  1925
* Function "sgn" is now overloaded and available on int, real, complex
haftmann@25184
  1926
(and other numeric types), using class "sgn".  Two possible defs of
haftmann@25184
  1927
sgn are given as equational assumptions in the classes sgn_if and
haftmann@25184
  1928
sgn_div_norm; ordered_idom now also inherits from sgn_if.
haftmann@25184
  1929
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
  1930
haftmann@25184
  1931
* Locale "partial_order" now unified with class "order" (cf. theory
haftmann@25184
  1932
Orderings), added parameter "less".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
  1933
haftmann@25184
  1934
* Renamings in classes "order" and "linorder": facts "refl", "trans" and
haftmann@25184
  1935
"cases" to "order_refl", "order_trans" and "linorder_cases", to avoid
haftmann@25184
  1936
clashes with HOL "refl" and "trans".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
  1937
haftmann@25184
  1938
* Classes "order" and "linorder": potential INCOMPATIBILITY due to
haftmann@25184
  1939
changed order of proof goals in instance proofs.
haftmann@25184
  1940
haftmann@25184
  1941
* The transitivity reasoner for partial and linear orders is set up
haftmann@25184
  1942
for classes "order" and "linorder".  Instances of the reasoner are available
haftmann@25184
  1943
in all contexts importing or interpreting the corresponding locales.
haftmann@25184
  1944
Method "order" invokes the reasoner separately; the reasoner
haftmann@25184
  1945
is also integrated with the Simplifier as a solver.  Diagnostic
haftmann@25184
  1946
command 'print_orders' shows the available instances of the reasoner
haftmann@25184
  1947
in the current context.
haftmann@25184
  1948
haftmann@25184
  1949
* Localized monotonicity predicate in theory "Orderings"; integrated
haftmann@25184
  1950
lemmas max_of_mono and min_of_mono with this predicate.
haftmann@25184
  1951
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
  1952
haftmann@25184
  1953
* Formulation of theorem "dense" changed slightly due to integration
haftmann@25184
  1954
with new class dense_linear_order.
haftmann@25184
  1955
haftmann@25184
  1956
* Uniform lattice theory development in HOL.
haftmann@25184
  1957
haftmann@25184
  1958
    constants "meet" and "join" now named "inf" and "sup"
haftmann@25184
  1959
    constant "Meet" now named "Inf"
haftmann@25184
  1960
haftmann@25184
  1961
    classes "meet_semilorder" and "join_semilorder" now named
haftmann@25184
  1962
      "lower_semilattice" and "upper_semilattice"
haftmann@25184
  1963
    class "lorder" now named "lattice"
haftmann@25184
  1964
    class "comp_lat" now named "complete_lattice"
haftmann@25184
  1965
haftmann@25184
  1966
    Instantiation of lattice classes allows explicit definitions
haftmann@25184
  1967
    for "inf" and "sup" operations (or "Inf" and "Sup" for complete lattices).
haftmann@25184

  2078
"*.size".

haftmann@23850
  2101
* Code generator library theories:
haftmann@24993
  2102
  - Code_Integer represents HOL integers by big integer literals in target
haftmann@23850
  2103
    languages.
haftmann@24993
  2104
  - Code_Char represents HOL characters by character literals in target
haftmann@23850
  2105
    languages.
haftmann@24993
  2106
  - Code_Char_chr like Code_Char, but also offers treatment of character
haftmann@24993
  2107
    codes; includes Code_Integer.
wenzelm@24800
  2108
  - Executable_Set allows to generate code for finite sets using lists.
wenzelm@24800
  2109
  - Executable_Rat implements rational numbers as triples (sign, enumerator,
haftmann@23850
  2110
    denominator).
wenzelm@24800
  2111
  - Executable_Real implements a subset of real numbers, namly those
haftmann@23850
  2112
    representable by rational numbers.
wenzelm@24800
  2113
  - Efficient_Nat implements natural numbers by integers, which in general will
haftmann@23850
  2114
    result in higher efficency; pattern matching with 0/Suc is eliminated;
haftmann@24993
  2115
    includes Code_Integer.
haftmann@24993
  2116
  - Code_Index provides an additional datatype index which is mapped to
haftmann@24993
  2117
    target-language built-in integers.
haftmann@26355
  2118
  - Code_Message provides an additional datatype message_string which is isomorphic to
haftmann@24993
  2119
    strings; messages are mapped to target-language strings.

* New package for inductive predicates
berghofe@23783
  2122
berghofe@23783
  2123
  An n-ary predicate p with m parameters z_1, ..., z_m can now be defined via

  2124
berghofe@23783
  2125
    inductive

berghofe@23783
  2169
berghofe@23783
  2170
  INCOMPATIBILITIES:
berghofe@23783
  2171
berghofe@23783
  2172
  - Since declaration and definition of inductive sets or predicates
wenzelm@24800
  2173
    is no longer separated, abbreviations involving the newly
wenzelm@24800
  2174
    introduced sets or predicates must be specified together with the
wenzelm@24800
  2175
    introduction rules after the 'where' keyword (see above), rather
wenzelm@24800
  2176
    than before the actual inductive definition.
wenzelm@24800
  2177
wenzelm@24800
  2178
  - The variables in induction and elimination rules are now
wenzelm@24800
  2179
    quantified in the order of their occurrence in the introduction
wenzelm@24800
  2180
    rules, rather than in alphabetical order. Since this may break
wenzelm@24800
  2181
    some proofs, these proofs either have to be repaired, e.g. by
wenzelm@24800
  2182
    reordering the variables a_i_1 ... a_i_{k_i} in Isar 'case'
wenzelm@24800
  2183
    statements of the form
berghofe@23783
  2184
berghofe@23783
  2185
      case (rule_i a_i_1 ... a_i_{k_i})
berghofe@23783
  2186
berghofe@23783
  2187
    or the old order of quantification has to be restored by explicitly adding
berghofe@23783
  2188
    meta-level quantifiers in the introduction rules, i.e.
berghofe@23783
  2189
berghofe@23783
  2190
      | rule_i: "!!a_i_1 ... a_i_{k_i}. ... ==> p z_1 ... z_m t_i_1 ... t_i_n"
berghofe@23783
  2191
berghofe@23783
  2192
  - The format of the elimination rules is now
berghofe@23783
  2193
berghofe@23783
  2194
      p z_1 ... z_m x_1 ... x_n ==>
berghofe@23783

berghofe@23783
  2196
        ==> ... ==> P
berghofe@23783
  2197
berghofe@23783
  2198
    for predicates and
berghofe@23783
  2199
berghofe@23783
  2200
      (x_1, ..., x_n) : s z_1 ... z_m ==>
berghofe@23783
  2201
        (!!a_1_1 ... a_1_{k_1}. x_1 = t_1_1 ==> ... ==> x_n = t_1_n ==> ... ==> P)

berghofe@23783
  2206
      x : s z_1 ... z_m ==>
berghofe@23783

        ==> ... ==> P
berghofe@23783
  2209
wenzelm@24800
  2210
    This may require terms in goals to be expanded to n-tuples
wenzelm@24800
  2211
    (e.g. using case_tac or simplification with the split_paired_all
wenzelm@24800
  2212
    rule) before the above elimination rule is applicable.
wenzelm@24800
  2213
wenzelm@24800
  2214
  - The elimination or case analysis rules for (mutually) inductive
wenzelm@24800
  2215
    sets or predicates are now called "p_1.cases" ... "p_k.cases". The
wenzelm@24800
  2216
    list of rules "p_1_..._p_k.elims" is no longer available.
berghofe@23783
  2217
krauss@25198
  2218
* New package "function"/"fun" for general recursive functions,
krauss@25198
  2219
supporting mutual and nested recursion, definitions in local contexts,
krauss@25198
  2220
more general pattern matching and partiality. See HOL/ex/Fundefs.thy
krauss@25198
  2221
for small examples, and the separate tutorial on the function
krauss@25198
  2222
package. The old recdef "package" is still available as before, but
krauss@25198
  2223
users are encouraged to use the new package.
krauss@25198
  2224
krauss@25198
  2225
* Method "lexicographic_order" automatically synthesizes termination
krauss@25198
  2226
relations as lexicographic combinations of size measures. 
krauss@25198
  2227
wenzelm@24800
  2228
* Case-expressions allow arbitrary constructor-patterns (including
wenzelm@24800
  2229
"_") and take their order into account, like in functional
wenzelm@24800
  2230
programming.  Internally, this is translated into nested
wenzelm@24800
  2231
case-expressions; missing cases are added and mapped to the predefined
wenzelm@24800
  2232
constant "undefined". In complicated cases printing may no longer show
wenzelm@24800
  2233
the original input but the internal form. Lambda-abstractions allow
wenzelm@24800
  2234
the same form of pattern matching: "% pat1 => e1 | ..." is an
wenzelm@24800
  2235
abbreviation for "%x. case x of pat1 => e1 | ..." where x is a new
wenzelm@24800
  2236
variable.
nipkow@23564
  2237
huffman@23468
  2238
* IntDef: The constant "int :: nat => int" has been removed; now "int"
wenzelm@24800
  2239
is an abbreviation for "of_nat :: nat => int". The simplification
wenzelm@24800
  2240
rules for "of_nat" have been changed to work like "int" did
wenzelm@24800
  2241
previously.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY:
huffman@23468
  2242
  - "of_nat (Suc m)" simplifies to "1 + of_nat m" instead of "of_nat m + 1"
huffman@23468
  2243
  - of_nat_diff and of_nat_mult are no longer default simp rules
huffman@23377
  2244
chaieb@23295
  2245
* Method "algebra" solves polynomial equations over (semi)rings using
wenzelm@24800
  2246
Groebner bases. The (semi)ring structure is defined by locales and the
wenzelm@24800
  2247
tool setup depends on that generic context. Installing the method for
wenzelm@24800
  2248
a specific type involves instantiating the locale and possibly adding
wenzelm@24800
  2249
declarations for computation on the coefficients.  The method is
wenzelm@24800
  2250
already instantiated for natural numbers and for the axiomatic class
wenzelm@24800
  2251
of idoms with numerals.  See also the paper by Chaieb and Wenzel at
wenzelm@24800
  2252
CALCULEMUS 2007 for the general principles underlying this
wenzelm@24800
  2253
architecture of context-aware proof-tools.
wenzelm@24800
  2254
wenzelm@25033
  2255
* Method "ferrack" implements quantifier elimination over
wenzelm@25033
  2256
special-purpose dense linear orders using locales (analogous to
wenzelm@25033
  2257
"algebra"). The method is already installed for class
wenzelm@25033
  2258
{ordered_field,recpower,number_ring} which subsumes real, hyperreal,
wenzelm@25033
  2259
rat, etc.
wenzelm@25033
  2260
wenzelm@24800
  2261
* Former constant "List.op @" now named "List.append".  Use ML
wenzelm@24800
  2262
antiquotations @{const_name List.append} or @{term " ... @ ... "} to
wenzelm@24800
  2263
circumvent possible incompatibilities when working on ML level.
wenzelm@24800
  2264
haftmann@24996
  2265
* primrec: missing cases mapped to "undefined" instead of "arbitrary".
haftmann@22845
  2266
wenzelm@24800
  2267
* New function listsum :: 'a list => 'a for arbitrary monoids.
wenzelm@24800
  2268
Special syntax: "SUM x <- xs. f x" (and latex variants)
wenzelm@24800
  2269
wenzelm@24800
  2270
* New syntax for Haskell-like list comprehension (input only), eg.
wenzelm@25177
  2271
[(x,y). x <- xs, y <- ys, x ~= y], see also src/HOL/List.thy.
wenzelm@24800
  2272
wenzelm@24800
  2273
* The special syntax for function "filter" has changed from [x :
wenzelm@24800
  2274
xs. P] to [x <- xs. P] to avoid an ambiguity caused by list
wenzelm@24800
  2275
comprehension syntax, and for uniformity.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  2276
wenzelm@24800
  2277
* [a..b] is now defined for arbitrary linear orders.  It used to be
wenzelm@24800
  2278
defined on nat only, as an abbreviation for [a..<Suc b]
wenzelm@24800
  2279
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  2280
wenzelm@24800
  2281
* Renamed lemma "set_take_whileD"  to "set_takeWhileD".
wenzelm@24800
  2282
wenzelm@25177
  2283
* New functions "sorted" and "sort" in src/HOL/List.thy.
wenzelm@24800
  2284
wenzelm@24800
  2285
* New lemma collection field_simps (an extension of ring_simps) for
wenzelm@24800
  2286
manipulating (in)equations involving division. Multiplies with all
wenzelm@24800
  2287
denominators that can be proved to be non-zero (in equations) or
wenzelm@24800
  2288
positive/negative (in inequations).
nipkow@23480
  2289
nipkow@23480
  2290
* Lemma collections ring_eq_simps, group_eq_simps and ring_distrib
wenzelm@24800
  2291
have been improved and renamed to ring_simps, group_simps and
wenzelm@24800
  2292
ring_distribs.  Removed lemmas field_xyz in theory Ring_and_Field
wenzelm@24800
  2293
because they were subsumed by lemmas xyz.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  2294
wenzelm@25177
  2295
* Theory Library/Commutative_Ring: switched from recdef to function
wenzelm@24800
  2296
package; constants add, mul, pow now curried.  Infix syntax for
wenzelm@24800
  2297
algebraic operations.
haftmann@22735
  2298
wenzelm@24800
  2299
* Dropped redundant lemma def_imp_eq in favor of meta_eq_to_obj_eq.
haftmann@22218
  2300
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@22218
  2301
wenzelm@24800
  2302
* Dropped redundant lemma if_def2 in favor of if_bool_eq_conj.
haftmann@22218
  2303
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@22218
  2304
wenzelm@22126
  2305
* HOL/records: generalised field-update to take a function on the
wenzelm@22126
  2306
field rather than the new value: r(|A := x|) is translated to A_update
wenzelm@22126
  2307
(K x) r The K-combinator that is internally used is called K_record.
schirmer@21226
  2308
INCOMPATIBILITY: Usage of the plain update functions has to be
schirmer@21226
  2309
adapted.
schirmer@21226
  2310
 
wenzelm@24800
  2311
* Class "semiring_0" now contains annihilation axioms x * 0 = 0 and 0
wenzelm@24800
  2312
* x = 0, which are required for a semiring.  Richer structures do not
wenzelm@24800
  2313
inherit from semiring_0 anymore, because this property is a theorem
wenzelm@24800
  2314
there, not an axiom.  INCOMPATIBILITY: In instances of semiring_0,
wenzelm@24800
  2315
there is more to prove, but this is mostly trivial.
wenzelm@24800
  2316
wenzelm@24800
  2317
* Class "recpower" is generalized to arbitrary monoids, not just
wenzelm@24800
  2318
commutative semirings.  INCOMPATIBILITY: may need to incorporate
haftmann@25163
  2319
commutativity or semiring properties additionally.
haftmann@21215
  2320
haftmann@21099
  2321
* Constant "List.list_all2" in List.thy now uses authentic syntax.
wenzelm@24800
  2322
INCOMPATIBILITY: translations containing list_all2 may go wrong,
wenzelm@24800
  2323
better use 'abbreviation'.
wenzelm@24800
  2324
wenzelm@24800
  2325
* Renamed constant "List.op mem" to "List.member".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  2326
wenzelm@22126
  2327
* Numeral syntax: type 'bin' which was a mere type copy of 'int' has
wenzelm@24800
  2328
been abandoned in favour of plain 'int'.  INCOMPATIBILITY --
wenzelm@22126
  2329
significant changes for setting up numeral syntax for types:
wenzelm@24800
  2330
  - New constants Numeral.pred and Numeral.succ instead
haftmann@20485
  2331
      of former Numeral.bin_pred and Numeral.bin_succ.
haftmann@20485
  2332
  - Use integer operations instead of bin_add, bin_mult and so on.
haftmann@20485
  2333
  - Numeral simplification theorems named Numeral.numeral_simps instead of Bin_simps.
haftmann@20485
  2334
  - ML structure Bin_Simprocs now named Int_Numeral_Base_Simprocs.
haftmann@20485

wenzelm@25177
  2336
See src/HOL/Integ/IntArith.thy for an example setup.
wenzelm@25177
  2337
wenzelm@25177
  2338
* Command 'normal_form' computes the normal form of a term that may
wenzelm@25177
  2339
contain free variables.  For example ``normal_form "rev [a, b, c]"''
wenzelm@25177
  2340
produces ``[b, c, a]'' (without proof).  This command is suitable for
wenzelm@25177
  2341
heavy-duty computations because the functions are compiled to ML
wenzelm@25177
  2342
first.  Correspondingly, a method "normalization" is provided.  See
wenzelm@25177
  2343
further src/HOL/ex/NormalForm.thy and src/Tools/nbe.ML.
nipkow@19895
  2344
wenzelm@17996
  2345
* Alternative iff syntax "A <-> B" for equality on bool (with priority
wenzelm@17996
  2346
25 like -->); output depends on the "iff" print_mode, the default is
wenzelm@17996
  2347
"A = B" (with priority 50).
wenzelm@17996
  2348
wenzelm@21265
  2349
* Relations less (<) and less_eq (<=) are also available on type bool.
wenzelm@21265
  2350
Modified syntax to disallow nesting without explicit parentheses,
wenzelm@24800
  2351
e.g. "(x < y) < z" or "x < (y < z)", but NOT "x < y < z".  Potential
wenzelm@24800
  2352
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@21265
  2353
nipkow@18674
  2354
* "LEAST x:A. P" expands to "LEAST x. x:A & P" (input only).
nipkow@18674
  2355
krauss@20716
  2356
* Relation composition operator "op O" now has precedence 75 and binds
krauss@20716
  2357
stronger than union and intersection. INCOMPATIBILITY.
krauss@20716
  2358
wenzelm@22126
  2359
* The old set interval syntax "{m..n(}" (and relatives) has been
wenzelm@22126
  2360
removed.  Use "{m..<n}" (and relatives) instead.
nipkow@19377
  2361
wenzelm@17865
  2362
* In the context of the assumption "~(s = t)" the Simplifier rewrites
wenzelm@24800
  2363
"t = s" to False (by simproc "neq").  INCOMPATIBILITY, consider using
wenzelm@24800
  2364
``declare [[simproc del: neq]]''.
wenzelm@24800
  2365
wenzelm@24800
  2366
* Simplifier: "m dvd n" where m and n are numbers is evaluated to
wenzelm@24800
  2367
True/False.
wenzelm@24800
  2368
wenzelm@24800
  2369
* Theorem Cons_eq_map_conv no longer declared as "simp".
nipkow@19211
  2370
ballarin@19279
  2371
* Theorem setsum_mult renamed to setsum_right_distrib.
ballarin@19279
  2372
nipkow@19211
  2373
* Prefer ex1I over ex_ex1I in single-step reasoning, e.g. by the
wenzelm@22126
  2374
``rule'' method.
wenzelm@22126
  2375
wenzelm@24800
  2376
* Reimplemented methods "sat" and "satx", with several improvements:
wenzelm@24800
  2377
goals no longer need to be stated as "<prems> ==> False", equivalences
wenzelm@24800
  2378
(i.e. "=" on type bool) are handled, variable names of the form
wenzelm@24800
  2379
"lit_<n>" are no longer reserved, significant speedup.
wenzelm@24800
  2380
wenzelm@24800
  2381
* Methods "sat" and "satx" can now replay MiniSat proof traces.
wenzelm@22126
  2382
zChaff is still supported as well.
wenzelm@22126
  2383
wenzelm@22126
  2384
* 'inductive' and 'datatype': provide projections of mutual rules,
wenzelm@22126
  2385
bundled as foo_bar.inducts;
wenzelm@22126
  2386
wenzelm@22126
  2387
* Library: moved theories Parity, GCD, Binomial, Infinite_Set to
wenzelm@22126
  2388
Library.
wenzelm@21256
  2389
wenzelm@21256
  2390
* Library: moved theory Accessible_Part to main HOL.
wenzelm@19572
  2391
wenzelm@18446
  2392
* Library: added theory Coinductive_List of potentially infinite lists
wenzelm@18446
  2393
as greatest fixed-point.
wenzelm@18399
  2394
wenzelm@19254
  2395
* Library: added theory AssocList which implements (finite) maps as
schirmer@19252
  2396
association lists.
webertj@17809
  2397
wenzelm@24800
  2398
* Method "evaluation" solves goals (i.e. a boolean expression)
wenzelm@24800
  2399
efficiently by compiling it to ML.  The goal is "proved" (via an
wenzelm@24800
  2400
oracle) if it evaluates to True.
wenzelm@20807
  2401
wenzelm@20807
  2402
* Linear arithmetic now splits certain operators (e.g. min, max, abs)
wenzelm@24800
  2403
also when invoked by the simplifier.  This results in the Simplifier
wenzelm@24800
  2404
being more powerful on arithmetic goals.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  2405
Configuration option fast_arith_split_limit=0 recovers the old
wenzelm@24800
  2406
behavior.
webertj@20217
  2407
wenzelm@22126
  2408
* Support for hex (0x20) and binary (0b1001) numerals.
wenzelm@19254
  2409
wenzelm@20807
  2410
* New method: reify eqs (t), where eqs are equations for an
wenzelm@20807
  2411
interpretation I :: 'a list => 'b => 'c and t::'c is an optional
wenzelm@20807
  2412
parameter, computes a term s::'b and a list xs::'a list and proves the
wenzelm@20807
  2413
theorem I xs s = t. This is also known as reification or quoting. The
wenzelm@20807
  2414
resulting theorem is applied to the subgoal to substitute t with I xs
wenzelm@20807
  2415
s.  If t is omitted, the subgoal itself is reified.
wenzelm@20807
  2416
wenzelm@20807
  2417
* New method: reflection corr_thm eqs (t). The parameters eqs and (t)
wenzelm@20807
  2418
are as explained above. corr_thm is a theorem for I vs (f t) = I vs t,
wenzelm@20807
  2419
where f is supposed to be a computable function (in the sense of code
wenzelm@20807
  2420
generattion). The method uses reify to compute s and xs as above then
wenzelm@20807
  2421
applies corr_thm and uses normalization by evaluation to "prove" f s =
wenzelm@20807
  2422
r and finally gets the theorem t = r, which is again applied to the
wenzelm@25177
  2423
subgoal. An Example is available in src/HOL/ex/ReflectionEx.thy.
wenzelm@25177
  2424
wenzelm@25177
  2425
* Reflection: Automatic reification now handels binding, an example is
wenzelm@25177
  2426
available in src/HOL/ex/ReflectionEx.thy
wenzelm@20807
  2427
wenzelm@25397
  2428
* HOL-Statespace: ``State Spaces: The Locale Way'' introduces a
schirmer@25409
  2429
command 'statespace' that is similar to 'record', but introduces an
wenzelm@25397
  2430
abstract specification based on the locale infrastructure instead of
wenzelm@25397
  2431
HOL types.  This leads to extra flexibility in composing state spaces,
wenzelm@25397
  2432
in particular multiple inheritance and renaming of components.

*** HOL-Complex ***
wenzelm@19653

huffman@22971
  2437
* Hyperreal: Functions root and sqrt are now defined on negative real
huffman@22971
  2438
inputs so that root n (- x) = - root n x and sqrt (- x) = - sqrt x.
huffman@22971
  2439
Nonnegativity side conditions have been removed from many lemmas, so
huffman@22971
  2440
that more subgoals may now be solved by simplification; potential

  2441
INCOMPATIBILITY.
huffman@22971
  2442
wenzelm@24800

* Real: new type classes formalize real normed vector spaces and
huffman@21791
  2444
algebras, using new overloaded constants scaleR :: real => 'a => 'a
huffman@21791
  2445
and norm :: 'a => real.
huffman@21791
  2446
wenzelm@24800
  2447
* Real: constant of_real :: real => 'a::real_algebra_1 injects from
wenzelm@24800
  2448
reals into other types. The overloaded constant Reals :: 'a set is now
wenzelm@24800
  2449
defined as range of_real; potential INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  2450
wenzelm@24800
  2451
* Real: proper support for ML code generation, including 'quickcheck'.
nipkow@23013
  2452
Reals are implemented as arbitrary precision rationals.
nipkow@23013
  2453
wenzelm@22126
  2454
* Hyperreal: Several constants that previously worked only for the
wenzelm@22126
  2455
reals have been generalized, so they now work over arbitrary vector
wenzelm@22126

  2519
(even on SML/NJ).
wenzelm@24643
  2520

wenzelm@19032
  2552
* Pure/General/table.ML: the join operations now works via exceptions
wenzelm@24706
  2553
DUP/SAME instead of type option. This is simpler in simple cases, and
wenzelm@19081
  2554
admits slightly more efficient complex applications.

  2590
global/local versions on theory vs. Proof.context have been
wenzelm@19006
  2591
discontinued; Attrib.syntax and Method.syntax have been adapted
wenzelm@19006
  2592
accordingly.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt parser expressions for
wenzelm@19006
  2593
attributes, methods, etc.

  2595
* Pure: several functions of signature "... -> theory -> theory * ..."
wenzelm@18446
  2596
have been reoriented to "... -> theory -> ... * theory" in order to
wenzelm@18446
  2597
allow natural usage in combination with the ||>, ||>>, |-> and
wenzelm@18446
  2598
fold_map combinators.

* Pure: official theorem names (closed derivations) and additional
wenzelm@21647
  2601
comments (tags) are now strictly separate.  Name hints -- which are
wenzelm@21647
  2602
maintained as tags -- may be attached any time without affecting the
wenzelm@21647
  2603
derivation.

  2605
* Pure: primitive rule lift_rule now takes goal cterm instead of an
wenzelm@18145
  2606
actual goal state (thm).  Use Thm.lift_rule (Thm.cprem_of st i) to
wenzelm@18020
  2607
achieve the old behaviour.

  2609
* Pure: the "Goal" constant is now called "prop", supporting a
wenzelm@18020
  2610
slightly more general idea of ``protecting'' meta-level rule
wenzelm@18020
  2611
statements.

  2613
* Pure: Logic.(un)varify only works in a global context, which is now
wenzelm@20040
  2614
enforced instead of silently assumed.  INCOMPATIBILITY, may use
wenzelm@20040
  2615
Logic.legacy_(un)varify as temporary workaround.
wenzelm@20040
  2616
wenzelm@20090
  2617
* Pure: structure Name provides scalable operations for generating
wenzelm@20090
  2618
internal variable names, notably Name.variants etc.  This replaces
wenzelm@20090
  2619
some popular functions from term.ML:
wenzelm@20090
  2620
wenzelm@20090
  2621
  Term.variant		->  Name.variant
wenzelm@24800
  2622
  Term.variantlist	->  Name.variant_list
wenzelm@20090
  2623
  Term.invent_names	->  Name.invent_list
wenzelm@20090
  2624
wenzelm@20090
  2625
Note that low-level renaming rarely occurs in new code -- operations
wenzelm@20090
  2626
from structure Variable are used instead (see below).
wenzelm@20090
  2627
wenzelm@20040
  2628
* Pure: structure Variable provides fundamental operations for proper
wenzelm@20040
  2629
treatment of fixed/schematic variables in a context.  For example,
wenzelm@20040
  2630
Variable.import introduces fixes for schematics of given facts and
wenzelm@20040
  2631
Variable.export reverses the effect (up to renaming) -- this replaces
wenzelm@20040
  2632
various freeze_thaw operations.
wenzelm@20040
  2633
wenzelm@18567
  2634
* Pure: structure Goal provides simple interfaces for
wenzelm@17981
  2635
init/conclude/finish and tactical prove operations (replacing former
