*** General ***
wenzelm@14655
     8
wenzelm@14655
     9
* Pure: considerably improved version of 'constdefs' command.  Now
wenzelm@14731
    10
  performs automatic type-inference of declared constants; additional
wenzelm@14731
    11
  support for local structure declarations (cf. locales and HOL
wenzelm@14731
    12
  records), see also isar-ref manual.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY: need
wenzelm@14731
    13
  to observe strictly sequential dependencies of definitions within a
wenzelm@14731
    14
  single 'constdefs' section; moreover, the declared name needs to be
wenzelm@14731
    15
  an identifier.  If all fails, consider to fall back on 'consts' and
wenzelm@14731
    16
  'defs' separately.
wenzelm@14655
    17
wenzelm@14698
    18
* Pure: improved indexed syntax and implicit structures.  First of
wenzelm@14731
    19
  all, indexed syntax provides a notational device for subscripted
wenzelm@14731
    20
  application, using the new syntax \<^bsub>term\<^esub> for arbitrary
wenzelm@14731
    21
  expressions.  Secondly, in a local context with structure
wenzelm@14731
    22
  declarations, number indexes \<^sub>n or the empty index (default
wenzelm@14731
    23
  number 1) refer to a certain fixed variable implicitly; option
wenzelm@14731
    24
  show_structs controls printing of implicit structures.  Typical
wenzelm@14731
    25
  applications of these concepts involve record types and locales.
wenzelm@14731
    26
wenzelm@14795
    27
* Pure: clear separation of logical types and nonterminals, where the
wenzelm@14795
    28
  latter may only occur in 'syntax' specifications or type
wenzelm@14795
    29
  abbreviations.  Before that distinction was only partially
wenzelm@14795
    30
  implemented via type class "logic" vs. "{}".  Potential
wenzelm@14795
    31
  INCOMPATIBILITY in rare cases of improper use of 'types'/'consts'
wenzelm@14795
    32
  instead of 'nonterminals'/'syntax'.  Some very exotic syntax
wenzelm@14816
    33
  specifications may require further adaption (e.g. Cube/Base.thy).
wenzelm@14816
    34
wenzelm@14854
    35
* Pure: removed obsolete type class "logic", use the top sort {}
wenzelm@14854
    36
  instead.  Note that non-logical types should be declared as
wenzelm@14854
    37
  'nonterminals' rather than 'types'.  INCOMPATIBILITY for new
wenzelm@14854
    38
  object-logic specifications.
wenzelm@14854
    39
wenzelm@14816
    40
* Pure/Syntax: inner syntax includes (*(*nested*) comments*).
wenzelm@14816
    41
wenzelm@14816
    42
* Pure/Syntax: pretty pinter now supports unbreakable blocks,
wenzelm@14816
    43
  specified in mixfix annotations as "(00...)".
wenzelm@14816
    44
wenzelm@14816
    45
* Pure/Syntax: 'advanced' translation functions (parse_translation
wenzelm@14816
    46
  etc.) may depend on the signature of the theory context being
wenzelm@14816
    47
  presently used for parsing/printing, see also isar-ref manual.
wenzelm@14816
    48
wenzelm@14816
    49
* Pure: tuned internal renaming of symbolic identifiers -- attach
wenzelm@14816
    50
  primes instead of base 26 numbers.
wenzelm@14816
    51
wenzelm@14816
    52
* ML: all output via channels of writeln/warning/error etc. is now
wenzelm@14816
    53
  passed through Output.output.  This gives interface builders a
wenzelm@14816
    54
  chance to adapt text encodings in arbitrary manners (say as XML
wenzelm@14816
    55
  entities); see the hook provided by Output.add_mode.  On the other
wenzelm@14816
    56
  hand, results of Pretty.string_of/str_of (including string_of_term,
wenzelm@14816
    57
  string_of_thm etc.) are still 'raw' (containing funny \<^raw...>
wenzelm@14816
    58
  symbols), which requires separate application of Output.output
wenzelm@14816
    59
  whenever strings are *not* passed on to writeln/warning/error etc.

*** HOL ***
schirmer@14700
    63
wenzelm@14731
    64
* HOL/record: reimplementation of records. Improved scalability for
wenzelm@14731
    65
  records with many fields, avoiding performance problems for type
wenzelm@14731
    66
  inference. Records are no longer composed of nested field types, but
wenzelm@14731
    67
  of nested extension types. Therefore the record type only grows
wenzelm@14731
    68
  linear in the number of extensions and not in the number of fields.
wenzelm@14731
    69
  The top-level (users) view on records is preserved.  Potential
wenzelm@14731
    70
  INCOMPATIBILITY only in strange cases, where the theory depends on
wenzelm@14731
    71
  the old record representation. The type generated for a record is
wenzelm@14731
    72
  called <record_name>_ext_type.
wenzelm@14731
    73
wenzelm@14878
    74
* HOL: symbolic syntax of Hilbert Choice Operator is now as follows:
wenzelm@14878
    75
wenzelm@14878
    76
  syntax (epsilon)
wenzelm@14878
    77
    "_Eps" :: "[pttrn, bool] => 'a"    ("(3\<some>_./ _)" [0, 10] 10)
wenzelm@14878
    78
wenzelm@14878
    79
  The symbol \<some> is displayed as the alternative epsilon of LaTeX
wenzelm@14878
    80
  and x-symbol; use option '-m epsilon' to get it actually printed.
wenzelm@14878
    81
  Moreover, the mathematically important symbolic identifier
wenzelm@14878
    82
  \<epsilon> becomes available as variable, constant etc.
wenzelm@14878
    83
wenzelm@14731
    84
* Simplifier: "record_upd_simproc" for simplification of multiple
wenzelm@14731
    85
  record updates enabled by default.  INCOMPATIBILITY: old proofs
wenzelm@14731
    86
  break occasionally, since simplification is more powerful by
wenzelm@14731
    87
  default.
wenzelm@14731
    88
wenzelm@14655
    89
wenzelm@14682
    90
*** HOLCF ***
wenzelm@14682
    91
wenzelm@14682
    92
* HOLCF: discontinued special version of 'constdefs' (which used to
wenzelm@14731
    93
  support continuous functions) in favor of the general Pure one with
wenzelm@14731
    94
  full type-inference.

wenzelm@14682

wenzelm@14606

New in Isabelle2004 (April 2004)
wenzelm@14606
    99
--------------------------------
wenzelm@13280
   100
skalberg@14171
   101
*** General ***
skalberg@14171
   102
ballarin@14398
   103
* Provers/order.ML:  new efficient reasoner for partial and linear orders.
ballarin@14398
   104
  Replaces linorder.ML.
ballarin@14398
   105
wenzelm@14606
   106
* Pure: Greek letters (except small lambda, \<lambda>), as well as Gothic
wenzelm@14606
   107
  (\<aa>...\<zz>\<AA>...\<ZZ>), calligraphic (\<A>...\<Z>), and Euler
skalberg@14173
   108
  (\<a>...\<z>), are now considered normal letters, and can therefore
skalberg@14173
   109
  be used anywhere where an ASCII letter (a...zA...Z) has until
skalberg@14173
   110
  now. COMPATIBILITY: This obviously changes the parsing of some
skalberg@14173
   111
  terms, especially where a symbol has been used as a binder, say
skalberg@14173
   112
  '\<Pi>x. ...', which is now a type error since \<Pi>x will be parsed
skalberg@14173
   113
  as an identifier.  Fix it by inserting a space around former
skalberg@14173
   114
  symbols.  Call 'isatool fixgreek' to try to fix parsing errors in
skalberg@14173
   115
  existing theory and ML files.
skalberg@14171
   116
paulson@14237
   117
* Pure: Macintosh and Windows line-breaks are now allowed in theory files.
paulson@14237
   118
wenzelm@14731
   119
* Pure: single letter sub/superscripts (\<^isub> and \<^isup>) are now
wenzelm@14731
   120
  allowed in identifiers. Similar to Greek letters \<^isub> is now considered
wenzelm@14731
   121
  a normal (but invisible) letter. For multiple letter subscripts repeat
wenzelm@14731
   122
  \<^isub> like this: x\<^isub>1\<^isub>2.
kleing@14233
   123
kleing@14333
   124
* Pure: There are now sub-/superscripts that can span more than one
kleing@14333
   125
  character. Text between \<^bsub> and \<^esub> is set in subscript in
wenzelm@14606
   126
  ProofGeneral and LaTeX, text between \<^bsup> and \<^esup> in
wenzelm@14606
   127
  superscript. The new control characters are not identifier parts.
kleing@14333
   128
schirmer@14561
   129
* Pure: Control-symbols of the form \<^raw:...> will literally print the
wenzelm@14606
   130
  content of "..." to the latex file instead of \isacntrl... . The "..."
wenzelm@14606
   131
  may consist of any printable characters excluding the end bracket >.
schirmer@14361
   132
paulson@14237
   133
* Pure: Using new Isar command "finalconsts" (or the ML functions
paulson@14237
   134
  Theory.add_finals or Theory.add_finals_i) it is now possible to
paulson@14237
   135
  declare constants "final", which prevents their being given a definition
paulson@14237
   136
  later.  It is useful for constants whose behaviour is fixed axiomatically
skalberg@14224
   137
  rather than definitionally, such as the meta-logic connectives.
skalberg@14224
   138
wenzelm@14606
   139
* Pure: 'instance' now handles general arities with general sorts
wenzelm@14606
   140
  (i.e. intersections of classes),
skalberg@14503
   141
kleing@14547
   142
* Presentation: generated HTML now uses a CSS style sheet to make layout
wenzelm@14731
   143
  (somewhat) independent of content. It is copied from lib/html/isabelle.css.
kleing@14547
   144
  It can be changed to alter the colors/layout of generated pages.
kleing@14547
   145
wenzelm@14556
   146
ballarin@14175
   147
*** Isar ***
ballarin@14175
   148
ballarin@14508
   149
* Tactic emulation methods rule_tac, erule_tac, drule_tac, frule_tac,
ballarin@14508
   150
  cut_tac, subgoal_tac and thin_tac:
ballarin@14175
   151
  - Now understand static (Isar) contexts.  As a consequence, users of Isar
ballarin@14175
   152
    locales are no longer forced to write Isar proof scripts.
ballarin@14175
   153
    For details see Isar Reference Manual, paragraph 4.3.2: Further tactic
ballarin@14175
   154
    emulations.
ballarin@14175
   155
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: names of variables to be instantiated may no
ballarin@14211
   156
    longer be enclosed in quotes.  Instead, precede variable name with `?'.
ballarin@14211
   157
    This is consistent with the instantiation attribute "where".
ballarin@14211
   158
ballarin@14257
   159
* Attributes "where" and "of":
ballarin@14285
   160
  - Now take type variables of instantiated theorem into account when reading
ballarin@14285
   161
    the instantiation string.  This fixes a bug that caused instantiated
ballarin@14285
   162
    theorems to have too special types in some circumstances.
ballarin@14285
   163
  - "where" permits explicit instantiations of type variables.
ballarin@14257
   164
wenzelm@14556
   165
* Calculation commands "moreover" and "also" no longer interfere with
wenzelm@14556
   166
  current facts ("this"), admitting arbitrary combinations with "then"
wenzelm@14556
   167
  and derived forms.
kleing@14283
   168
ballarin@14211
   169
* Locales:
ballarin@14211
   170
  - Goal statements involving the context element "includes" no longer
ballarin@14211
   171
    generate theorems with internal delta predicates (those ending on
ballarin@14211
   172
    "_axioms") in the premise.
ballarin@14211
   173
    Resolve particular premise with <locale>.intro to obtain old form.
ballarin@14211
   174
  - Fixed bug in type inference ("unify_frozen") that prevented mix of target
ballarin@14211
   175
    specification and "includes" elements in goal statement.
ballarin@14254
   176
  - Rule sets <locale>.intro and <locale>.axioms no longer declared as
ballarin@14254
   177
    [intro?] and [elim?] (respectively) by default.
ballarin@14508
   178
  - Experimental command for instantiation of locales in proof contexts:
ballarin@14551
   179
        instantiate <label>[<attrs>]: <loc>
ballarin@14508
   180
    Instantiates locale <loc> and adds all its theorems to the current context
ballarin@14551
   181
    taking into account their attributes.  Label and attrs are optional
ballarin@14551
   182
    modifiers, like in theorem declarations.  If present, names of
ballarin@14551
   183
    instantiated theorems are qualified with <label>, and the attributes
ballarin@14551
   184
    <attrs> are applied after any attributes these theorems might have already.
ballarin@14551
   185
      If the locale has assumptions, a chained fact of the form
ballarin@14508
   186
    "<loc> t1 ... tn" is expected from which instantiations of the parameters
ballarin@14551
   187
    are derived.  The command does not support old-style locales declared
ballarin@14551
   188
    with "locale (open)".
ballarin@14551
   189
      A few (very simple) examples can be found in FOL/ex/LocaleInst.thy.
ballarin@14175
   190
ballarin@14175
   191
* HOL: Tactic emulation methods induct_tac and case_tac understand static
ballarin@14175
   192
  (Isar) contexts.
ballarin@14175
   193
wenzelm@14556
   194
kleing@14136
   195
*** HOL ***
kleing@14136
   196
kleing@14624
   197
* Proof import: new image HOL4 contains the imported library from
kleing@14624
   198
  the HOL4 system with about 2500 theorems. It is imported by
kleing@14624
   199
  replaying proof terms produced by HOL4 in Isabelle. The HOL4 image
kleing@14624
   200
  can be used like any other Isabelle image.  See
kleing@14624
   201
  HOL/Import/HOL/README for more information.
kleing@14624
   202
ballarin@14398
   203
* Simplifier:
ballarin@14398
   204
  - Much improved handling of linear and partial orders.
ballarin@14398
   205
    Reasoners for linear and partial orders are set up for type classes
ballarin@14398
   206
    "linorder" and "order" respectively, and are added to the default simpset
ballarin@14398
   207
    as solvers.  This means that the simplifier can build transitivity chains
ballarin@14398
   208
    to solve goals from the assumptions.
ballarin@14398
   209
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: old proofs break occasionally.  Typically, applications
ballarin@14398
   210
    of blast or auto after simplification become unnecessary because the goal
ballarin@14398
   211
    is solved by simplification already.
ballarin@14398
   212
wenzelm@14731
   213
* Numerics: new theory Ring_and_Field contains over 250 basic numerical laws,
paulson@14389
   214
    all proved in axiomatic type classes for semirings, rings and fields.
paulson@14389
   215
paulson@14389
   216
* Numerics:
paulson@14389
   217
  - Numeric types (nat, int, and in HOL-Complex rat, real, complex, etc.) are
wenzelm@14731
   218
    now formalized using the Ring_and_Field theory mentioned above.
paulson@14389
   219
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: simplification and arithmetic behaves somewhat differently
paulson@14389
   220
    than before, because now they are set up once in a generic manner.
wenzelm@14731
   221
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: many type-specific arithmetic laws have gone.
paulson@14480
   222
    Look for the general versions in Ring_and_Field (and Power if they concern
paulson@14480
   223
    exponentiation).
paulson@14389
   224
paulson@14401
   225
* Type "rat" of the rational numbers is now available in HOL-Complex.
paulson@14389
   226
schirmer@14255
   227
* Records:
schirmer@14255
   228
  - Record types are now by default printed with their type abbreviation
schirmer@14255
   229
    instead of the list of all field types. This can be configured via
schirmer@14255
   230
    the reference "print_record_type_abbr".
wenzelm@14731
   231
  - Simproc "record_upd_simproc" for simplification of multiple updates added
schirmer@14255
   232
    (not enabled by default).
schirmer@14427
   233
  - Simproc "record_ex_sel_eq_simproc" to simplify EX x. sel r = x resp.
schirmer@14427
   234
    EX x. x = sel r to True (not enabled by default).
schirmer@14255
   235
  - Tactic "record_split_simp_tac" to split and simplify records added.
wenzelm@14731
   236
kleing@14136
   237
* 'specification' command added, allowing for definition by
skalberg@14224
   238
  specification.  There is also an 'ax_specification' command that
skalberg@14224
   239
  introduces the new constants axiomatically.
kleing@14136
   240
nipkow@14375
   241
* arith(_tac) is now able to generate counterexamples for reals as well.
nipkow@14375
   242
ballarin@14399
   243
* HOL-Algebra: new locale "ring" for non-commutative rings.
ballarin@14399
   244
paulson@14243
   245
* HOL-ex: InductiveInvariant_examples illustrates advanced recursive function
kleing@14610
   246
  definitions, thanks to Sava Krsti\'{c} and John Matthews.
kleing@14610
   247
wenzelm@14731
   248
* HOL-Matrix: a first theory for matrices in HOL with an application of
kleing@14610
   249
  matrix theory to linear programming.
kleing@14136
   250
nipkow@14380
   251
* Unions and Intersections:
nipkow@14380
   252
  The x-symbol output syntax of UN and INT has been changed
nipkow@14380
   253
  from "\<Union>x \<in> A. B" to "\<Union\<^bsub>x \<in> A\<^esub> B"
nipkow@14380
   254
  i.e. the index formulae has become a subscript, like in normal math.
nipkow@14380
   255
  Similarly for "\<Union>x. B", and for \<Inter> instead of \<Union>.
nipkow@14380
   256
  The subscript version is also accepted as input syntax.
nipkow@14380
   257
kleing@14418
   258
* Unions and Intersections over Intervals:
wenzelm@14731

* 'refute' command added to search for (finite) countermodels.  Only works
webertj@14464
   267
  for a fragment of HOL.  The installation of an external SAT solver is
webertj@14464

berghofe@14602

berghofe@14602
   272
  In contrast to 'refute', it can deal with inductive datatypes,
berghofe@14602
   273
  but cannot handle quantifiers. See "HOL/ex/Quickcheck_Examples.thy"

   288
* Provers/simplifier:
berghofe@13618
   289
nipkow@13781
   290
  - Completely reimplemented method simp (ML: Asm_full_simp_tac):
berghofe@13618
   291
    Assumptions are now subject to complete mutual simplification,
berghofe@13618
   292
    not just from left to right. The simplifier now preserves
berghofe@13618
   293
    the order of assumptions.
berghofe@13618
   294
berghofe@13618
   295
    Potential INCOMPATIBILITY:
berghofe@13618
   296
nipkow@13781
   297
    -- simp sometimes diverges where the old version did
nipkow@13781
   298
       not, e.g. invoking simp on the goal
berghofe@13618
   299
berghofe@13618
   300
        [| P (f x); y = x; f x = f y |] ==> Q
berghofe@13618
   301
nipkow@13781
   302
       now gives rise to the infinite reduction sequence
nipkow@13781
   303
nipkow@13781
   304
        P(f x) --(f x = f y)--> P(f y) --(y = x)--> P(f x) --(f x = f y)--> ...
nipkow@13781
   305
nipkow@13781
   306
       Using "simp (asm_lr)" (ML: Asm_lr_simp_tac) instead often solves this
nipkow@13781
   307
       kind of problem.
nipkow@13781
   308
nipkow@13781
   309
    -- Tactics combining classical reasoner and simplification (such as auto)
nipkow@13781
   310
       are also affected by this change, because many of them rely on
nipkow@13781
   311
       simp. They may sometimes diverge as well or yield a different numbers
nipkow@13781
   312
       of subgoals. Try to use e.g. force, fastsimp, or safe instead of auto
nipkow@13781
   313
       in case of problems. Sometimes subsequent calls to the classical
nipkow@13781
   314
       reasoner will fail because a preceeding call to the simplifier too
nipkow@13781
   315
       eagerly simplified the goal, e.g. deleted redundant premises.
berghofe@13618
   316
berghofe@13618
   317
  - The simplifier trace now shows the names of the applied rewrite rules
berghofe@13618
   318
nipkow@13829
   319
  - You can limit the number of recursive invocations of the simplifier
nipkow@13829
   320
    during conditional rewriting (where the simplifie tries to solve the
nipkow@13829
   321
    conditions before applying the rewrite rule):
nipkow@13829
   322
    ML "simp_depth_limit := n"
nipkow@13829
   323
    where n is an integer. Thus you can force termination where previously
nipkow@13829
   324
    the simplifier would diverge.
nipkow@13829
   325
ballarin@13835
   326
  - Accepts free variables as head terms in congruence rules.  Useful in Isar.
nipkow@13829
   327
ballarin@13938
   328
  - No longer aborts on failed congruence proof.  Instead, the
ballarin@13938
   329
    congruence is ignored.
ballarin@13938

berghofe@14008

* Pure: New generic framework for extracting programs from constructive
berghofe@14008
   332
  proofs. See HOL/Extraction.thy for an example instantiation, as well
berghofe@14008
   333
  as HOL/Extraction for some case studies.
berghofe@14008
   334
nipkow@13868
   335
* Pure: The main goal of the proof state is no longer shown by default, only
nipkow@13868
   336
the subgoals. This behaviour is controlled by a new flag.
ballarin@13835
   337
   PG menu: Isabelle/Isar -> Settings -> Show Main Goal
nipkow@13815
   338
(ML: Proof.show_main_goal).
nipkow@13815
   339
nipkow@13815
   340
* Pure: You can find all matching introduction rules for subgoal 1, i.e. all
nipkow@13815
   341
rules whose conclusion matches subgoal 1:
nipkow@13815
   342
      PG menu: Isabelle/Isar -> Show me -> matching rules
nipkow@13815
   343
The rules are ordered by how closely they match the subgoal.
nipkow@13815
   344
In particular, rules that solve a subgoal outright are displayed first
nipkow@13815
   345
(or rather last, the way they are printed).
nipkow@13815
   346
(ML: ProofGeneral.print_intros())
nipkow@13815
   347
nipkow@13815
   348
* Pure: New flag trace_unify_fail causes unification to print
nipkow@13781
   349
diagnostic information (PG: in trace buffer) when it fails. This is
nipkow@13781
   350
useful for figuring out why single step proofs like rule, erule or
nipkow@13781
   351
assumption failed.
nipkow@13781
   352
nipkow@13815
   353
* Pure: Locale specifications now produce predicate definitions
wenzelm@13410
   354
according to the body of text (covering assumptions modulo local
wenzelm@13410
   355
definitions); predicate "loc_axioms" covers newly introduced text,
wenzelm@13410
   356
while "loc" is cumulative wrt. all included locale expressions; the
wenzelm@13410
   357
latter view is presented only on export into the global theory
wenzelm@13410
   358
context; potential INCOMPATIBILITY, use "(open)" option to fall back
wenzelm@13410
   359
on the old view without predicates;
wenzelm@13410
   360
wenzelm@13459
   361
* Pure: predefined locales "var" and "struct" are useful for sharing
wenzelm@13459
   362
parameters (as in CASL, for example); just specify something like
wenzelm@13459
   363
``var x + var y + struct M'' as import;
wenzelm@13459
   364
wenzelm@13463
   365
* Pure: improved thms_containing: proper indexing of facts instead of
wenzelm@13463
   366
raw theorems; check validity of results wrt. current name space;
wenzelm@13463
   367
include local facts of proof configuration (also covers active
wenzelm@13541
   368
locales), cover fixed variables in index; may use "_" in term
wenzelm@13541
   369
specification; an optional limit for the number of printed facts may
wenzelm@13541
   370
be given (the default is 40);
wenzelm@13541
   371
wenzelm@13541
   372
* Pure: disallow duplicate fact bindings within new-style theory files
wenzelm@13541
   373
(batch-mode only);
wenzelm@13540
   374
wenzelm@13463
   375
* Provers: improved induct method: assumptions introduced by case
wenzelm@13463
   376
"foo" are split into "foo.hyps" (from the rule) and "foo.prems" (from
wenzelm@13463
   377
the goal statement); "foo" still refers to all facts collectively;
wenzelm@13463
   378
paulson@13550
   379
* Provers: the function blast.overloaded has been removed: all constants
paulson@13550
   380
are regarded as potentially overloaded, which improves robustness in exchange
paulson@13550
   381
for slight decrease in efficiency;

nipkow@13781

   542
    "case (Suc n)");
wenzelm@12280
   543
  - 'induct' method divinates rule instantiation from the inductive
wenzelm@12280
   544
    claim; no longer requires excessive ?P bindings for proper
wenzelm@12280
   545
    instantiation of cases;
wenzelm@12280
   546
  - 'induct' method properly enumerates all possibilities of set/type
wenzelm@12280
   547
    rules; as a consequence facts may be also passed through *type*
wenzelm@12280
   548
    rules without further ado;
wenzelm@12280
   549
  - 'induct' method now derives symbolic cases from the *rulified*
wenzelm@12280
   550
    rule (before it used to rulify cases stemming from the internal
wenzelm@12280
   551
    atomized version); this means that the context of a non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
   552
    statement becomes is included in the hypothesis, avoiding the
wenzelm@12280
   553
    slightly cumbersome show "PROP ?case" form;
wenzelm@12280
   554
  - 'induct' may now use elim-style induction rules without chaining
wenzelm@12280
   555
    facts, using ``missing'' premises from the goal state; this allows
wenzelm@12280
   556
    rules stemming from inductive sets to be applied in unstructured
wenzelm@12280
   557
    scripts, while still benefitting from proper handling of non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
   558
    statements; NB: major inductive premises need to be put first, all
wenzelm@12280
   559
    the rest of the goal is passed through the induction;
wenzelm@12280
   560
  - 'induct' proper support for mutual induction involving non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
   561
    rule statements (uses the new concept of simultaneous goals, see
wenzelm@12280
   562
    below);
wenzelm@12853
   563
  - append all possible rule selections, but only use the first
wenzelm@12853
   564
    success (no backtracking);
wenzelm@11995
   565
  - removed obsolete "(simplified)" and "(stripped)" options of methods;
wenzelm@12754
   566
  - undeclared rule case names default to numbers 1, 2, 3, ...;
wenzelm@12754
   567
  - added 'print_induct_rules' (covered by help item in recent Proof
wenzelm@12754
   568
    General versions);
wenzelm@11995
   569
  - moved induct/cases attributes to Pure, methods to Provers;
wenzelm@11995
   570
  - generic method setup instantiated for FOL and HOL;
wenzelm@11986
   571
wenzelm@12163
   572
* Pure: support multiple simultaneous goal statements, for example
wenzelm@12163
   573
"have a: A and b: B" (same for 'theorem' etc.); being a pure
wenzelm@12163
   574
meta-level mechanism, this acts as if several individual goals had
wenzelm@12163
   575
been stated separately; in particular common proof methods need to be
wenzelm@12163
   576
repeated in order to cover all claims; note that a single elimination
wenzelm@12163
   577
step is *not* sufficient to establish the two conjunctions, so this
wenzelm@12163
   578
fails:
wenzelm@12163
   579
wenzelm@12163
   580
  assume "A & B" then have A and B ..   (*".." fails*)
wenzelm@12163
   581
wenzelm@12163
   582
better use "obtain" in situations as above; alternative refer to
wenzelm@12163
   583
multi-step methods like 'auto', 'simp_all', 'blast+' etc.;
wenzelm@12163
   584
wenzelm@12078
   585
* Pure: proper integration with ``locales''; unlike the original
wenzelm@12210
   586
version by Florian Kammüller, Isar locales package high-level proof
wenzelm@12078
   587
contexts rather than raw logical ones (e.g. we admit to include
wenzelm@12280
   588
attributes everywhere); operations on locales include merge and
wenzelm@12964
   589
rename; support for implicit arguments (``structures''); simultaneous
wenzelm@12964
   590
type-inference over imports and text; see also HOL/ex/Locales.thy for
wenzelm@12964
   591
some examples;
wenzelm@12078
   592
wenzelm@12707
   593
* Pure: the following commands have been ``localized'', supporting a
wenzelm@12707
   594
target locale specification "(in name)": 'lemma', 'theorem',
wenzelm@12707
   595
'corollary', 'lemmas', 'theorems', 'declare'; the results will be
wenzelm@12707
   596
stored both within the locale and at the theory level (exported and
wenzelm@12707
   597
qualified by the locale name);
wenzelm@12707
   598
wenzelm@12964
   599
* Pure: theory goals may now be specified in ``long'' form, with
wenzelm@12964
   600
ad-hoc contexts consisting of arbitrary locale elements. for example
wenzelm@12964
   601
``lemma foo: fixes x assumes "A x" shows "B x"'' (local syntax and
wenzelm@12964
   602
definitions may be given, too); the result is a meta-level rule with
wenzelm@12964
   603
the context elements being discharged in the obvious way;
wenzelm@12964
   604
wenzelm@12964
   605
* Pure: new proof command 'using' allows to augment currently used
wenzelm@12964
   606
facts after a goal statement ('using' is syntactically analogous to
wenzelm@12964
   607
'apply', but acts on the goal's facts only); this allows chained facts
wenzelm@12964
   608
to be separated into parts given before and after a claim, as in
wenzelm@12964
   609
``from a and b have C using d and e <proof>'';
wenzelm@12078
   610
wenzelm@11722
   611
* Pure: renamed "antecedent" case to "rule_context";
wenzelm@11722
   612
wenzelm@12964
   613
* Pure: new 'judgment' command records explicit information about the
wenzelm@12964
   614
object-logic embedding (used by several tools internally); no longer
wenzelm@12964
   615
use hard-wired "Trueprop";
wenzelm@12964
   616
wenzelm@11738
   617
* Pure: added 'corollary' command;
wenzelm@11738
   618
wenzelm@11722
   619
* Pure: fixed 'token_translation' command;
wenzelm@11722
   620
wenzelm@11899
   621
* Pure: removed obsolete 'exported' attribute;
wenzelm@11899
   622
wenzelm@11933
   623
* Pure: dummy pattern "_" in is/let is now automatically lifted over
wenzelm@11933
   624
bound variables: "ALL x. P x --> Q x" (is "ALL x. _ --> ?C x")
wenzelm@11899
   625
supersedes more cumbersome ... (is "ALL x. _ x --> ?C x");
wenzelm@11899
   626
wenzelm@11952
   627
* Pure: method 'atomize' presents local goal premises as object-level
wenzelm@11952
   628
statements (atomic meta-level propositions); setup controlled via
wenzelm@11952
   629
rewrite rules declarations of 'atomize' attribute; example
wenzelm@11952
   630
application: 'induct' method with proper rule statements in improper
wenzelm@11952
   631
proof *scripts*;
wenzelm@11952
   632
wenzelm@12106
   633
* Pure: emulation of instantiation tactics (rule_tac, cut_tac, etc.)
wenzelm@12106
   634
now consider the syntactic context of assumptions, giving a better
wenzelm@12106
   635
chance to get type-inference of the arguments right (this is
wenzelm@12106
   636
especially important for locales);
wenzelm@12106
   637
wenzelm@12312
   638
* Pure: "sorry" no longer requires quick_and_dirty in interactive
wenzelm@12312
   639
mode;
wenzelm@12312
   640
wenzelm@12405
   641
* Pure/obtain: the formal conclusion "thesis", being marked as
wenzelm@12405
   642
``internal'', may no longer be reference directly in the text;
wenzelm@12405
   643
potential INCOMPATIBILITY, may need to use "?thesis" in rare
wenzelm@12405
   644
situations;
wenzelm@12405
   645
wenzelm@12405
   646
* Pure: generic 'sym' attribute which declares a rule both as pure
wenzelm@12405
   647
'elim?' and for the 'symmetric' operation;
wenzelm@12405
   648
wenzelm@12877
   649
* Pure: marginal comments ``--'' may now occur just anywhere in the
wenzelm@12877
   650
text; the fixed correlation with particular command syntax has been
wenzelm@12877
   651
discontinued;
wenzelm@12877
   652
berghofe@13023
   653
* Pure: new method 'rules' is particularly well-suited for proof
berghofe@13023
   654
search in intuitionistic logic; a bit slower than 'blast' or 'fast',
berghofe@13023
   655
but often produces more compact proof terms with less detours;
berghofe@13023
   656
wenzelm@12364
   657
* Pure/Provers/classical: simplified integration with pure rule
wenzelm@12364
   658
attributes and methods; the classical "intro?/elim?/dest?"
wenzelm@12364
   659
declarations coincide with the pure ones; the "rule" method no longer
wenzelm@12364
   660
includes classically swapped intros; "intro" and "elim" methods no
wenzelm@12364
   661
longer pick rules from the context; also got rid of ML declarations
wenzelm@12364
   662
AddXIs/AddXEs/AddXDs; all of this has some potential for
wenzelm@12364
   663
INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12364
   664
wenzelm@12405
   665
* Provers/classical: attribute 'swapped' produces classical inversions
wenzelm@12405
   666
of introduction rules;
wenzelm@12405
   667
wenzelm@12364
   668
* Provers/simplifier: 'simplified' attribute may refer to explicit
wenzelm@12364
   669
rules instead of full simplifier context; 'iff' attribute handles
wenzelm@12364
   670
conditional rules;
wenzelm@11936
   671
wenzelm@11745
   672
* HOL: 'typedef' now allows alternative names for Rep/Abs morphisms;
wenzelm@11745
   673
wenzelm@11690
   674
* HOL: 'recdef' now fails on unfinished automated proofs, use
wenzelm@11633
   675
"(permissive)" option to recover old behavior;
wenzelm@11633
   676
wenzelm@11933
   677
* HOL: 'inductive' no longer features separate (collective) attributes
wenzelm@11933
   678
for 'intros' (was found too confusing);
wenzelm@11933
   679
wenzelm@12405
   680
* HOL: properly declared induction rules less_induct and
wenzelm@12405
   681
wf_induct_rule;
wenzelm@12405
   682
kleing@11788
   683
wenzelm@11474
   684
*** HOL ***
wenzelm@11474
   685
wenzelm@11702
   686
* HOL: moved over to sane numeral syntax; the new policy is as
wenzelm@11702
   687
follows:
wenzelm@11702
   688
wenzelm@11702
   689
  - 0 and 1 are polymorphic constants, which are defined on any
wenzelm@11702
   690
  numeric type (nat, int, real etc.);
wenzelm@11702
   691
wenzelm@11702
   692
  - 2, 3, 4, ... and -1, -2, -3, ... are polymorphic numerals, based
wenzelm@11702
   693
  binary representation internally;
wenzelm@11702
   694
wenzelm@11702
   695
  - type nat has special constructor Suc, and generally prefers Suc 0
wenzelm@11702
   696
  over 1::nat and Suc (Suc 0) over 2::nat;
wenzelm@11702
   697
wenzelm@12364
   698
This change may cause significant problems of INCOMPATIBILITY; here
wenzelm@12364
   699
are some hints on converting existing sources:
wenzelm@11702
   700
wenzelm@11702
   701
  - due to the new "num" token, "-0" and "-1" etc. are now atomic
wenzelm@11702
   702
  entities, so expressions involving "-" (unary or binary minus) need
wenzelm@11702
   703
  to be spaced properly;
wenzelm@11702
   704
wenzelm@11702
   705
  - existing occurrences of "1" may need to be constraint "1::nat" or
wenzelm@11702
   706
  even replaced by Suc 0; similar for old "2";
wenzelm@11702
   707
wenzelm@11702
   708
  - replace "#nnn" by "nnn", and "#-nnn" by "-nnn";
wenzelm@11702
   709
wenzelm@11702
   710
  - remove all special provisions on numerals in proofs;
wenzelm@11702
   711
wenzelm@13042
   712
* HOL: simp rules nat_number expand numerals on nat to Suc/0
wenzelm@12837
   713
representation (depends on bin_arith_simps in the default context);
wenzelm@12837
   714
wenzelm@12736
   715
* HOL: symbolic syntax for x^2 (numeral 2);
wenzelm@12736
   716
wenzelm@12335
   717
* HOL: the class of all HOL types is now called "type" rather than
wenzelm@12335
   718
"term"; INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt references to this type class
wenzelm@12335
   719
in axclass/classes, instance/arities, and (usually rare) occurrences
wenzelm@12335
   720
in typings (of consts etc.); internally the class is called
wenzelm@12335
   721
"HOL.type", ML programs should refer to HOLogic.typeS;
wenzelm@12335
   722
wenzelm@12280
   723
* HOL/record package improvements:
wenzelm@12280
   724
  - new derived operations "fields" to build a partial record section,
wenzelm@12280
   725
    "extend" to promote a fixed record to a record scheme, and
wenzelm@12280
   726
    "truncate" for the reverse; cf. theorems "xxx.defs", which are *not*
wenzelm@12280
   727
    declared as simp by default;
wenzelm@12587
   728
  - shared operations ("more", "fields", etc.) now need to be always
wenzelm@12587
   729
    qualified) --- potential INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12280
   730
  - removed "make_scheme" operations (use "make" with "extend") --
wenzelm@12280
   731
    INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@11937
   732
  - removed "more" class (simply use "term") -- INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12253
   733
  - provides cases/induct rules for use with corresponding Isar
wenzelm@12253
   734
    methods (for concrete records, record schemes, concrete more
wenzelm@12280
   735
    parts, and schematic more parts -- in that order);
wenzelm@11930
   736
  - internal definitions directly based on a light-weight abstract
wenzelm@11930
   737
    theory of product types over typedef rather than datatype;
wenzelm@11930
   738
berghofe@13023
   739
* HOL: generic code generator for generating executable ML code from
berghofe@13023
   740
specifications; specific support for HOL constructs such as inductive
berghofe@13023
   741
datatypes and sets, as well as recursive functions; can be invoked
berghofe@13023
   742
via 'generate_code' theory section;
berghofe@13023
   743
wenzelm@11933
   744
* HOL: canonical cases/induct rules for n-tuples (n = 3..7);
wenzelm@11933
   745
paulson@13824
   746
* HOL: consolidated and renamed several theories.  In particular:
wenzelm@14731
   747
        Ord.thy has been absorbed into HOL.thy
wenzelm@14731
   748
        String.thy has been absorbed into List.thy
wenzelm@14731
   749
wenzelm@11802
   750
* HOL: concrete setsum syntax "\<Sum>i:A. b" == "setsum (%i. b) A"
wenzelm@11802
   751
(beware of argument permutation!);
wenzelm@11802
   752
wenzelm@11657
   753
* HOL: linorder_less_split superseded by linorder_cases;
wenzelm@11657
   754
wenzelm@12917
   755
* HOL/List: "nodups" renamed to "distinct";
nipkow@12889
   756
wenzelm@11633
   757
* HOL: added "The" definite description operator; move Hilbert's "Eps"
paulson@13824
   758
to peripheral theory "Hilbert_Choice"; some INCOMPATIBILITIES:
paulson@13824
   759
  - Ex_def has changed, now need to use some_eq_ex
wenzelm@11437
   760
wenzelm@11572
   761
* HOL: made split_all_tac safe; EXISTING PROOFS MAY FAIL OR LOOP, so
wenzelm@11572
   762
in this (rare) case use:
wenzelm@11572
   763
wenzelm@11572
   764
  delSWrapper "split_all_tac"
wenzelm@11572
   765
  addSbefore ("unsafe_split_all_tac", unsafe_split_all_tac)
wenzelm@11572
   766
wenzelm@11572
   767
* HOL: added safe wrapper "split_conv_tac" to claset; EXISTING PROOFS
wenzelm@11474
   768
MAY FAIL;
nipkow@11361
   769
wenzelm@11572
   770
* HOL: introduced f^n = f o ... o f; warning: due to the limits of
wenzelm@11572
   771
Isabelle's type classes, ^ on functions and relations has too general
wenzelm@11572
   772
a domain, namely ('a * 'b) set and 'a => 'b; this means that it may be
wenzelm@11572
   773
necessary to attach explicit type constraints;
nipkow@11307
   774
wenzelm@12917
   775
* HOL/Relation: the prefix name of the infix "O" has been changed from
wenzelm@12917
   776
"comp" to "rel_comp"; INCOMPATIBILITY: a few theorems have been
wenzelm@12917
   777
renamed accordingly (eg "compI" -> "rel_compI").
nipkow@12489
   778
wenzelm@11487
   779
* HOL: syntax translations now work properly with numerals and records
wenzelm@11487
   780
expressions;
wenzelm@11474
   781
wenzelm@12457
   782
* HOL: bounded abstraction now uses syntax "%" / "\<lambda>" instead
wenzelm@12457
   783
of "lam" -- INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@11474
   784
wenzelm@11933
   785
* HOL: got rid of some global declarations (potential INCOMPATIBILITY
wenzelm@11933
   786
for ML tools): const "()" renamed "Product_Type.Unity", type "unit"
wenzelm@11933
   787
renamed "Product_Type.unit";
wenzelm@11611
   788
nipkow@12564
   789
* HOL: renamed rtrancl_into_rtrancl2 to converse_rtrancl_into_rtrancl
nipkow@12564
   790
wenzelm@12924
   791
* HOL: removed obsolete theorem "optionE" (use "option.exhaust", or
wenzelm@12924
   792
the "cases" method);
wenzelm@12924
   793
wenzelm@12597
   794
* HOL/GroupTheory: group theory examples including Sylow's theorem (by
wenzelm@12597
   795
Florian Kammüller);
wenzelm@12597
   796
wenzelm@12608
   797
* HOL/IMP: updated and converted to new-style theory format; several
wenzelm@12608
   798
parts turned into readable document, with proper Isar proof texts and
wenzelm@12608
   799
some explanations (by Gerwin Klein);
wenzelm@12597
   800
wenzelm@12734
   801
* HOL-Real: added Complex_Numbers (by Gertrud Bauer);
wenzelm@12734
   802
wenzelm@12690
   803
* HOL-Hyperreal is now a logic image;
wenzelm@12690

wenzelm@12022
   806
*** HOLCF ***
wenzelm@12022
   807
wenzelm@12622

   809
operations;
wenzelm@12622
   810
wenzelm@12622
   811
* Isar: domain package adapted to new-style theory format, e.g. see

   812
HOLCF/ex/Dnat.thy;
wenzelm@12622

potential INCOMPATIBILITY; now use plain induct_tac instead of former
wenzelm@12280
   816
lift.induct_tac, always use UU instead of Undef;
wenzelm@12022
   817
wenzelm@12597

*** ZF ***
wenzelm@11474
   822
wenzelm@12622
   823
* Isar: proper integration of logic-specific tools and packages,
wenzelm@12622
   824
including theory commands '(co)inductive', '(co)datatype',
wenzelm@12622
   825
'rep_datatype', 'inductive_cases', as well as methods 'ind_cases',
wenzelm@12622
   826
'induct_tac', 'case_tac', and 'typecheck' (with attribute 'TC');
wenzelm@12622
   827
wenzelm@12622
   828
* theory Main no longer includes AC; for the Axiom of Choice, base
wenzelm@12622
   829
your theory on Main_ZFC;
wenzelm@12622
   830
wenzelm@12622
   831
* the integer library now covers quotients and remainders, with many
wenzelm@12622
   832
laws relating division to addition, multiplication, etc.;
paulson@12563
   833
wenzelm@12280
   834
* ZF/UNITY: Chandy and Misra's UNITY is now available in ZF, giving a
wenzelm@12280
   835
typeless version of the formalism;
wenzelm@12280
   836
wenzelm@13025
   837
* ZF/AC, Coind, IMP, Resid: updated and converted to new-style theory
wenzelm@13025
   838
format;
wenzelm@12608
   839
wenzelm@12280
   840
* ZF/Induct: new directory for examples of inductive definitions,
wenzelm@12608
   841
including theory Multiset for multiset orderings; converted to
wenzelm@12608
   842
new-style theory format;
wenzelm@12177
   843
wenzelm@13025
   844

* Pure/kernel: meta-level proof terms (by Stefan Berghofer); reference
wenzelm@12280
   850
variable proof controls level of detail: 0 = no proofs (only oracle
wenzelm@12280
   851
dependencies), 1 = lemma dependencies, 2 = compact proof terms; see
wenzelm@12280
   852
also ref manual for further ML interfaces;
wenzelm@12280
   853
wenzelm@12280
   854
* Pure/axclass: removed obsolete ML interface
wenzelm@12280
   855
goal_subclass/goal_arity;
wenzelm@12280
   856
wenzelm@12280
   857
* Pure/syntax: new token syntax "num" for plain numerals (without "#"
wenzelm@12280
   858
of "xnum"); potential INCOMPATIBILITY, since -0, -1 etc. are now
wenzelm@12280
   859
separate tokens, so expressions involving minus need to be spaced
wenzelm@12280
   860
properly;
wenzelm@12280
   861
wenzelm@12312
   862
* Pure/syntax: support non-oriented infixes, using keyword "infix"
wenzelm@12312
   863
rather than "infixl" or "infixr";
wenzelm@12312
   864
wenzelm@12312
   865
* Pure/syntax: concrete syntax for dummy type variables admits genuine
wenzelm@12312
   866
sort constraint specifications in type inference; e.g. "x::_::foo"
wenzelm@12312
   867
ensures that the type of "x" is of sort "foo" (but not necessarily a
wenzelm@12312
   868
type variable);
wenzelm@12280
   869
wenzelm@12280
   870
* Pure/syntax: print modes "type_brackets" and "no_type_brackets"
wenzelm@12280
   871
control output of nested => (types); the default behavior is
wenzelm@12280
   872
"type_brackets";
wenzelm@12280
   873
wenzelm@12280
   874
* Pure/syntax: builtin parse translation for "_constify" turns valued
wenzelm@11817
   875
tokens into AST constants;
wenzelm@11474
   876
wenzelm@12280
   877
* Pure/syntax: prefer later declarations of translations and print
wenzelm@12280
   878
translation functions; potential INCOMPATIBILITY: need to reverse
wenzelm@12280
   879
multiple declarations for same syntax element constant;
wenzelm@12280
   880
wenzelm@12832
   881
* Pure/show_hyps reset by default (in accordance to existing Isar
wenzelm@12832
   882
practice);
wenzelm@12832
   883
wenzelm@12280
   884
* Provers/classical: renamed addaltern to addafter, addSaltern to
wenzelm@12280
   885
addSafter;
wenzelm@12280
   886
wenzelm@12280
   887
* Provers/clasimp: ``iff'' declarations now handle conditional rules
wenzelm@12280
   888
as well;
wenzelm@12253
   889
wenzelm@12538
   890
* system: tested support for MacOS X; should be able to get Isabelle +
wenzelm@12538
   891
Proof General to work in a plain Terminal after installing Poly/ML
wenzelm@12538
   892
(e.g. from the Isabelle distribution area) and GNU bash alone
wenzelm@12538
   893
(e.g. from http://www.apple.com); full X11, XEmacs and X-Symbol
wenzelm@12538
   894
support requires further installations, e.g. from
wenzelm@12538
   895
http://fink.sourceforge.net/);
wenzelm@12538
   896
wenzelm@12280
   897
* system: support Poly/ML 4.1.1 (able to manage larger heaps);
wenzelm@11551
   898
wenzelm@12753
   899
* system: reduced base memory usage by Poly/ML (approx. 20 MB instead
wenzelm@12753
   900
of 40 MB), cf. ML_OPTIONS;
wenzelm@12753
   901
wenzelm@11633
   902
* system: Proof General keywords specification is now part of the
wenzelm@11633
   903
Isabelle distribution (see etc/isar-keywords.el);
wenzelm@11633
   904
wenzelm@12728
   905
* system: support for persistent Proof General sessions (refrain from
wenzelm@12728
   906
outdating all loaded theories on startup); user may create writable
wenzelm@12728
   907
logic images like this: ``isabelle -q HOL Test'';
wenzelm@12597
   908
wenzelm@11551
   909
* system: smart selection of Isabelle process versus Isabelle
wenzelm@11572
   910
interface, accommodates case-insensitive file systems (e.g. HFS+); may
wenzelm@11572
   911
run both "isabelle" and "Isabelle" even if file names are badly
wenzelm@11572
   912
damaged (executable inspects the case of the first letter of its own
wenzelm@11572
   913
name); added separate "isabelle-process" and "isabelle-interface";
wenzelm@11551
   914
wenzelm@12472
   915
* system: refrain from any attempt at filtering input streams; no
wenzelm@12472
   916
longer support ``8bit'' encoding of old isabelle font, instead proper
wenzelm@12472
   917
iso-latin characters may now be used; the related isatools
wenzelm@12472
   918
"symbolinput" and "nonascii" have disappeared as well;
wenzelm@12472
   919
wenzelm@12472
   920
* system: removed old "xterm" interface (the print modes "xterm" and
wenzelm@12472
   921
"xterm_color" are still available for direct use in a suitable
wenzelm@12472
   922
terminal);

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES ***
nipkow@10224
   930
paulson@11241
   931
* HOL: please note that theories in the Library and elsewhere often use the
paulson@11241
   932
new-style (Isar) format; to refer to their theorems in an ML script you must
wenzelm@12622
   933
bind them to ML identifers by e.g.      val thm_name = thm "thm_name";
paulson@11241
   934
wenzelm@11043
   935
* HOL: inductive package no longer splits induction rule aggressively,
wenzelm@11043
   936
but only as far as specified by the introductions given; the old
oheimb@11130
   937
format may be recovered via ML function complete_split_rule or attribute
wenzelm@11043
   938
'split_rule (complete)';
wenzelm@11043
   939
wenzelm@10998
   940
* HOL: induct renamed to lfp_induct, lfp_Tarski to lfp_unfold,
wenzelm@10998
   941
gfp_Tarski to gfp_unfold;
nipkow@10224
   942
paulson@10288
   943
* HOL: contrapos, contrapos2 renamed to contrapos_nn, contrapos_pp;
paulson@10288
   944
wenzelm@10858
   945
* HOL: infix "dvd" now has priority 50 rather than 70 (because it is a
wenzelm@10858
   946
relation); infix "^^" has been renamed "``"; infix "``" has been
wenzelm@10858
   947
renamed "`"; "univalent" has been renamed "single_valued";
nipkow@10793
   948
wenzelm@10998
   949
* HOL/Real: "rinv" and "hrinv" replaced by overloaded "inverse"
wenzelm@10998
   950
operation;
wenzelm@10998
   951
nipkow@10868
   952
* HOLCF: infix "`" has been renamed "$"; the symbol syntax is \<cdot>;
nipkow@10856
   953
wenzelm@10391
   954
* Isar: 'obtain' no longer declares "that" fact as simp/intro;
wenzelm@10391
   955
wenzelm@10401
   956
* Isar/HOL: method 'induct' now handles non-atomic goals; as a
wenzelm@10401
   957
consequence, it is no longer monotonic wrt. the local goal context
wenzelm@10401
   958
(which is now passed through the inductive cases);
wenzelm@10401
   959
wenzelm@10976
   960
* Document preparation: renamed standard symbols \<ll> to \<lless> and
wenzelm@10976
   961
\<gg> to \<ggreater>;
wenzelm@10976
   962
nipkow@10224

wenzelm@10245
   964
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@10245
   965
wenzelm@10858
   966
* \isabellestyle{NAME} selects version of Isabelle output (currently
wenzelm@10858
   967
available: are "it" for near math-mode best-style output, "sl" for
wenzelm@10858
   968
slanted text style, and "tt" for plain type-writer; if no
wenzelm@10858
   969
\isabellestyle command is given, output is according to slanted
wenzelm@10858
   970
type-writer);
wenzelm@10858
   971
wenzelm@10322
   972
* support sub/super scripts (for single symbols only), input syntax is
wenzelm@10322
   973
like this: "A\<^sup>*" or "A\<^sup>\<star>";
wenzelm@10322
   974
wenzelm@10858
   975
* some more standard symbols; see Appendix A of the system manual for
wenzelm@11062
   976
the complete list of symbols defined in isabellesym.sty;
wenzelm@10858
   977
wenzelm@10998
   978
* improved isabelle style files; more abstract symbol implementation
wenzelm@10998
   979
(should now use \isamath{...} and \isatext{...} in custom symbol
wenzelm@10998
   980
definitions);
wenzelm@10998
   981
wenzelm@10634
   982
* antiquotation @{goals} and @{subgoals} for output of *dynamic* goals
wenzelm@10634
   983
state; Note that presentation of goal states does not conform to
wenzelm@10634
   984
actual human-readable proof documents.  Please do not include goal
wenzelm@10634
   985
states into document output unless you really know what you are doing!
wenzelm@10322
   986
wenzelm@11062
   987
* proper indentation of antiquoted output with proportional LaTeX
wenzelm@11062
   988
fonts;
wenzelm@10862
   989
wenzelm@11050
   990
* no_document ML operator temporarily disables LaTeX document
wenzelm@11050
   991
generation;
wenzelm@11050
   992
wenzelm@11062
   993

wenzelm@10306
   996
*** Isar ***
wenzelm@10306
   997
wenzelm@10547
   998
* Pure: Isar now suffers initial goal statements to contain unbound
wenzelm@10547
   999
schematic variables (this does not conform to actual readable proof
wenzelm@10547
  1000
documents, due to unpredictable outcome and non-compositional proof
wenzelm@10547
  1001
checking); users who know what they are doing may use schematic goals
wenzelm@10547
  1002
for Prolog-style synthesis of proven results;
wenzelm@10547
  1003
wenzelm@10391
  1004
* Pure: assumption method (an implicit finishing) now handles actual
wenzelm@10391
  1005
rules as well;
wenzelm@10391
  1006
wenzelm@10391
  1007
* Pure: improved 'obtain' --- moved to Pure, insert "that" into
wenzelm@10391
  1008
initial goal, declare "that" only as Pure intro (only for single
wenzelm@10391
  1009
steps); the "that" rule assumption may now be involved in implicit
wenzelm@10391
  1010
finishing, thus ".." becomes a feasible for trivial obtains;
wenzelm@10391
  1011
wenzelm@10391
  1012
* Pure: default proof step now includes 'intro_classes'; thus trivial
wenzelm@10391
  1013
instance proofs may be performed by "..";
wenzelm@10391
  1014
wenzelm@10391
  1015
* Pure: ?thesis / ?this / "..." now work for pure meta-level
wenzelm@10391
  1016
statements as well;
wenzelm@10306
  1017
wenzelm@11097
  1018
* Pure: more robust selection of calculational rules;
wenzelm@11097
  1019
wenzelm@10858
  1020
* Pure: the builtin notion of 'finished' goal now includes the ==-refl
wenzelm@10858
  1021
rule (as well as the assumption rule);
wenzelm@10858
  1022
wenzelm@10858
  1023
* Pure: 'thm_deps' command visualizes dependencies of theorems and
wenzelm@10858
  1024
lemmas, using the graph browser tool;
wenzelm@10858
  1025
wenzelm@10944
  1026
* Pure: predict failure of "show" in interactive mode;
wenzelm@10944
  1027
wenzelm@11016
  1028
* Pure: 'thms_containing' now takes actual terms as arguments;
wenzelm@11016
  1029
wenzelm@10401
  1030
* HOL: improved method 'induct' --- now handles non-atomic goals
wenzelm@10401
  1031
(potential INCOMPATIBILITY); tuned error handling;
wenzelm@10401
  1032
wenzelm@10557
  1033
* HOL: cases and induct rules now provide explicit hints about the
wenzelm@10547
  1034
number of facts to be consumed (0 for "type" and 1 for "set" rules);
wenzelm@10547
  1035
any remaining facts are inserted into the goal verbatim;
wenzelm@10547
  1036
wenzelm@10858
  1037
* HOL: local contexts (aka cases) may now contain term bindings as
wenzelm@10858
  1038
well; the 'cases' and 'induct' methods new provide a ?case binding for
wenzelm@10858
  1039
the result to be shown in each case;
wenzelm@10858
  1040
wenzelm@10770
  1041
* HOL: added 'recdef_tc' command;
wenzelm@10770
  1042
wenzelm@11016
  1043
* isatool convert assists in eliminating legacy ML scripts;

*** HOL ***
wenzelm@10245
  1047
wenzelm@10245
  1048
* HOL/Library: a collection of generic theories to be used together
wenzelm@10245
  1049
with main HOL; the theory loader path already includes this directory
wenzelm@10245
  1050
by default; the following existing theories have been moved here:
wenzelm@10245
  1051
HOL/Induct/Multiset, HOL/Induct/Acc (as Accessible_Part), HOL/While
wenzelm@10337
  1052
(as While_Combinator), HOL/Lex/Prefix (as List_Prefix);
wenzelm@10245
  1053
wenzelm@10966
  1054
* HOL/Unix: "Some aspects of Unix file-system security", a typical
wenzelm@10966
  1055
modelling and verification task performed in Isabelle/HOL +
wenzelm@10966
  1056
Isabelle/Isar + Isabelle document preparation (by Markus Wenzel).
wenzelm@10966
  1057
wenzelm@11094
  1058
* HOL/Algebra: special summation operator SUM no longer exists, it has
wenzelm@11094
  1059
been replaced by setsum; infix 'assoc' now has priority 50 (like
wenzelm@11094
  1060
'dvd'); axiom 'one_not_zero' has been moved from axclass 'ring' to
wenzelm@11094
  1061
'domain', this makes the theory consistent with mathematical
wenzelm@11094
  1062
literature;
wenzelm@11094
  1063
wenzelm@10514
  1064
* HOL basics: added overloaded operations "inverse" and "divide"
wenzelm@10726
  1065
(infix "/"), syntax for generic "abs" operation, generic summation
wenzelm@11094
  1066
operator \<Sum>;
wenzelm@10452
  1067
wenzelm@10391
  1068
* HOL/typedef: simplified package, provide more useful rules (see also
wenzelm@10391
  1069
HOL/subset.thy);
wenzelm@10391
  1070
wenzelm@10915
  1071
* HOL/datatype: induction rule for arbitrarily branching datatypes is
wenzelm@10915
  1072
now expressed as a proper nested rule (old-style tactic scripts may
wenzelm@10915
  1073
require atomize_strip_tac to cope with non-atomic premises);
wenzelm@10915
  1074
wenzelm@10915
  1075
* HOL: renamed theory "Prod" to "Product_Type", renamed "split" rule
wenzelm@10915
  1076
to "split_conv" (old name still available for compatibility);
wenzelm@10915
  1077
wenzelm@10915
  1078
* HOL: improved concrete syntax for strings (e.g. allows translation
wenzelm@10915
  1079
rules with string literals);
wenzelm@10915
  1080
paulson@12245
  1081
* HOL-Real-Hyperreal: this extends HOL-Real with the hyperreals
paulson@12245
  1082
 and Fleuriot's mechanization of analysis, including the transcendental
paulson@12245
  1083
 functions for the reals;

wenzelm@10547
  1090
* CTT: x-symbol support for Pi, Sigma, -->, : (membership); note that
wenzelm@10547
  1091
"lam" is displayed as TWO lambda-symbols
paulson@10474
  1092
wenzelm@10547
  1093
* CTT: theory Main now available, containing everything (that is, Bool
wenzelm@10547
  1094
and Arith);

*** General ***
wenzelm@10391
  1098
wenzelm@10547
  1099
* Pure: the Simplifier has been implemented properly as a derived rule
wenzelm@10547
  1100
outside of the actual kernel (at last!); the overall performance
wenzelm@10547
  1101
penalty in practical applications is about 50%, while reliability of
wenzelm@10547
  1102
the Isabelle inference kernel has been greatly improved;
wenzelm@10547
  1103
wenzelm@11112
  1104
* print modes "brackets" and "no_brackets" control output of nested =>
wenzelm@11112
  1105
(types) and ==> (props); the default behaviour is "brackets";
wenzelm@11112
  1106
wenzelm@10391
  1107
* Provers: fast_tac (and friends) now handle actual object-logic rules
wenzelm@10391
  1108
as assumptions as well;
wenzelm@10391
  1109
wenzelm@11124
  1110
* system: support Poly/ML 4.0;
wenzelm@11124
  1111
wenzelm@11124
  1112
* system: isatool install handles KDE version 1 or 2;

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES ***
paulson@8014
  1120
wenzelm@8848
  1121
* HOL: simplification of natural numbers is much changed; to partly
wenzelm@8848
  1122
recover the old behaviour (e.g. to prevent n+n rewriting to #2*n)
wenzelm@8848
  1123
issue the following ML commands:
wenzelm@8848
  1124
wenzelm@8848
  1125
  Delsimprocs Nat_Numeral_Simprocs.cancel_numerals;
wenzelm@8848
  1126
  Delsimprocs [Nat_Numeral_Simprocs.combine_numerals];
paulson@8788
  1127
wenzelm@10129
  1128
* HOL: simplification no longer dives into case-expressions; this is
wenzelm@10129
  1129
controlled by "t.weak_case_cong" for each datatype t;
wenzelm@10003
  1130
wenzelm@10003
  1131
* HOL: nat_less_induct renamed to less_induct;
wenzelm@10003
  1132
wenzelm@10003
  1133
* HOL: systematic renaming of the SOME (Eps) rules, may use isatool
wenzelm@10003
  1134
fixsome to patch .thy and .ML sources automatically;
paulson@8967
  1135
wenzelm@10003
  1136
  select_equality  -> some_equality
wenzelm@10003
  1137
  select_eq_Ex     -> some_eq_ex
wenzelm@10003
  1138
  selectI2EX       -> someI2_ex
wenzelm@10003
  1139
  selectI2         -> someI2
wenzelm@10003
  1140
  selectI          -> someI
wenzelm@10003
  1141
  select1_equality -> some1_equality
wenzelm@10003
  1142
  Eps_sym_eq       -> some_sym_eq_trivial
wenzelm@10003
  1143
  Eps_eq           -> some_eq_trivial
wenzelm@10003
  1144
wenzelm@10003
  1145
* HOL: exhaust_tac on datatypes superceded by new generic case_tac;
wenzelm@10003
  1146
wenzelm@10003
  1147
* HOL: removed obsolete theorem binding expand_if (refer to split_if
wenzelm@10003
  1148
instead);
wenzelm@10003
  1149
wenzelm@10003
  1150
* HOL: the recursion equations generated by 'recdef' are now called
wenzelm@10003
  1151
f.simps instead of f.rules;
wenzelm@10003
  1152
wenzelm@10003
  1153
* HOL: qed_spec_mp now also handles bounded ALL as well;
wenzelm@10003
  1154
wenzelm@10003
  1155
* HOL: 0 is now overloaded, so the type constraint ":: nat" may
wenzelm@10003
  1156
sometimes be needed;
wenzelm@10003
  1157
wenzelm@10003
  1158
* HOL: the constant for "f``x" is now "image" rather than "op ``";
paulson@8014
  1159
paulson@10065
  1160
* HOL: the constant for "f-``x" is now "vimage" rather than "op -``";
paulson@10065
  1161
wenzelm@9330
  1162
* HOL: the disjoint sum is now "<+>" instead of "Plus"; the cartesian
wenzelm@9330
  1163
product is now "<*>" instead of "Times"; the lexicographic product is
wenzelm@9330
  1164
now "<*lex*>" instead of "**";
nipkow@8705
  1165
wenzelm@10003
  1166
* HOL: theory Sexp is now in HOL/Induct examples (it used to be part
wenzelm@10003
  1167
of main HOL, but was unused); better use HOL's datatype package;
paulson@9971
  1168
wenzelm@10137
  1169
* HOL: removed "symbols" syntax for constant "override" of theory Map;
wenzelm@10137
  1170
the old syntax may be recovered as follows:
wenzelm@10137
  1171
wenzelm@10137
  1172
  syntax (symbols)
wenzelm@10137
  1173
    override  :: "('a ~=> 'b) => ('a ~=> 'b) => ('a ~=> 'b)"
wenzelm@10137
  1174
      (infixl "\\<oplus>" 100)
wenzelm@10137
  1175
wenzelm@8848
  1176
* HOL/Real: "rabs" replaced by overloaded "abs" function;
wenzelm@8848
  1177
wenzelm@8887
  1178
* HOL/ML: even fewer consts are declared as global (see theories Ord,
wenzelm@8887
  1179
Lfp, Gfp, WF); this only affects ML packages that refer to const names
wenzelm@8887
  1180
internally;
wenzelm@8887
  1181
wenzelm@10003
  1182
* HOL and ZF: syntax for quotienting wrt an equivalence relation
wenzelm@10003
  1183
changed from A/r to A//r;
wenzelm@9908
  1184
wenzelm@10003
  1185
* ZF: new treatment of arithmetic (nat & int) may break some old
wenzelm@10003
  1186
proofs;
wenzelm@8921
  1187
wenzelm@10003
  1188
* Isar: renamed some attributes (RS -> THEN, simplify -> simplified,
wenzelm@10003
  1189
rulify -> rule_format, elimify -> elim_format, ...);
paulson@9542
  1190
wenzelm@9941
  1191
* Isar/Provers: intro/elim/dest attributes changed; renamed
wenzelm@9941
  1192
intro/intro!/intro!! flags to intro!/intro/intro? (in most cases, one
wenzelm@9937
  1193
should have to change intro!! to intro? only); replaced "delrule" by
wenzelm@9937
  1194
"rule del";
wenzelm@9437
  1195
wenzelm@9612
  1196
* Isar/HOL: renamed "intrs" to "intros" in inductive definitions;
wenzelm@9612
  1197
wenzelm@9437
  1198
* Provers: strengthened force_tac by using new first_best_tac;
oheimb@9402
  1199
wenzelm@10003
  1200
* LaTeX document preparation: several changes of isabelle.sty (see
wenzelm@10003
  1201
lib/texinputs);
wenzelm@8729
  1202
paulson@8014
  1203
wenzelm@8487
  1204
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@8358
  1205
wenzelm@9198
  1206
* formal comments (text blocks etc.) in new-style theories may now
wenzelm@9753
  1207
contain antiquotations of thm/prop/term/typ/text to be presented
wenzelm@9753
  1208
according to latex print mode; concrete syntax is like this:
wenzelm@9753
  1209
@{term[show_types] "f(x) = a + x"};
wenzelm@9198
  1210
wenzelm@8358
  1211
* isatool mkdir provides easy setup of Isabelle session directories,
wenzelm@8518
  1212
including proper document sources;
wenzelm@8358
  1213
wenzelm@8358
  1214
* generated LaTeX sources are now deleted after successful run
wenzelm@8358
  1215
(isatool document -c); may retain a copy somewhere else via -D option
wenzelm@8358
  1216
of isatool usedir;
wenzelm@8358
  1217
wenzelm@8566
  1218
* isatool usedir -D now lets isatool latex -o sty update the Isabelle
wenzelm@10003
  1219
style files, achieving self-contained LaTeX sources and simplifying
wenzelm@10003
  1220
LaTeX debugging;
wenzelm@8566
  1221
wenzelm@8518
  1222
* old-style theories now produce (crude) LaTeX output as well;
wenzelm@8358
  1223
wenzelm@9057
  1224
* browser info session directories are now self-contained (may be put
wenzelm@9437
  1225
on WWW server seperately); improved graphs of nested sessions; removed
wenzelm@9437
  1226
graph for 'all sessions';
wenzelm@9057
  1227
wenzelm@10003
  1228
* several improvements in isabelle style files; \isabellestyle{it}
wenzelm@10003
  1229
produces fake math mode output; \isamarkupheader is now \section by
wenzelm@10003
  1230
default; see lib/texinputs/isabelle.sty etc.;
wenzelm@9489
  1231
wenzelm@8358
  1232
wenzelm@8184
  1233
*** Isar ***
wenzelm@8184
  1234
wenzelm@10003
  1235
* Isar/Pure: local results and corresponding term bindings are now
wenzelm@10003
  1236
subject to Hindley-Milner polymorphism (similar to ML); this
wenzelm@10003
  1237
accommodates incremental type-inference very nicely;
wenzelm@8283
  1238
wenzelm@10003
  1239
* Isar/Pure: new derived language element 'obtain' supports
wenzelm@10003
  1240
generalized existence reasoning;
wenzelm@8621
  1241
wenzelm@10003
  1242
* Isar/Pure: new calculational elements 'moreover' and 'ultimately'
wenzelm@10003
  1243
support accumulation of results, without applying any rules yet;
wenzelm@10003
  1244
useful to collect intermediate results without explicit name
wenzelm@10003
  1245
references, and for use with transitivity rules with more than 2
wenzelm@10003
  1246
premises;
wenzelm@8184
  1247
wenzelm@10003
  1248
* Isar/Pure: scalable support for case-analysis type proofs: new
wenzelm@10003
  1249
'case' language element refers to local contexts symbolically, as
wenzelm@10003
  1250
produced by certain proof methods; internally, case names are attached
wenzelm@10003
  1251
to theorems as "tags";
wenzelm@8440
  1252
wenzelm@10003
  1253
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'hide' removes declarations from
wenzelm@9330
  1254
class/type/const name spaces;
wenzelm@9330
  1255
wenzelm@10003
  1256
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'defs' supports option "(overloaded)" to
wenzelm@9330
  1257
indicate potential overloading;
wenzelm@9330
  1258
wenzelm@10003
  1259
* Isar/Pure: changed syntax of local blocks from {{ }} to { };
wenzelm@8621
  1260
wenzelm@10003
  1261
* Isar/Pure: syntax of sorts made 'inner', i.e. have to write
wenzelm@10003
  1262
"{a,b,c}" instead of {a,b,c};
wenzelm@9011
  1263
wenzelm@10003
  1264
* Isar/Pure now provides its own version of intro/elim/dest
wenzelm@10003
  1265
attributes; useful for building new logics, but beware of confusion
wenzelm@10003
  1266
with the version in Provers/classical;
wenzelm@9612
  1267
wenzelm@10003
  1268
* Isar/Pure: the local context of (non-atomic) goals is provided via
wenzelm@10003
  1269
case name 'antecedent';
wenzelm@8440
  1270
wenzelm@10003
  1271
* Isar/Pure: removed obsolete 'transfer' attribute (transfer of thms
wenzelm@10003
  1272
to the current context is now done automatically);
wenzelm@9383
  1273
wenzelm@10003
  1274
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'method_setup' provides a simple interface
wenzelm@10003
  1275
for definining proof methods in ML;
wenzelm@9612
  1276
wenzelm@10003
  1277
* Isar/Provers: intro/elim/dest attributes changed; renamed
wenzelm@9941
  1278
intro/intro!/intro!! flags to intro!/intro/intro? (INCOMPATIBILITY, in
wenzelm@9941
  1279
most cases, one should have to change intro!! to intro? only);
wenzelm@9941
  1280
replaced "delrule" by "rule del";
wenzelm@8283
  1281
wenzelm@10003
  1282
* Isar/Provers: new 'hypsubst' method, plain 'subst' method and
wenzelm@10003
  1283
'symmetric' attribute (the latter supercedes [RS sym]);
wenzelm@10003
  1284
wenzelm@10003
  1285
* Isar/Provers: splitter support (via 'split' attribute and 'simp'
wenzelm@10003
  1286
method modifier); 'simp' method: 'only:' modifier removes loopers as
wenzelm@10003
  1287
well (including splits);
wenzelm@10003
  1288
wenzelm@10003
  1289
* Isar/Provers: Simplifier and Classical methods now support all kind
wenzelm@10003
  1290
of modifiers used in the past, including 'cong', 'iff', etc.
wenzelm@10003
  1291
wenzelm@10003
  1292
* Isar/Provers: added 'fastsimp' and 'clarsimp' methods (combination
wenzelm@10003
  1293
of Simplifier and Classical reasoner);
wenzelm@10003
  1294
wenzelm@10003
  1295
* Isar/HOL: new proof method 'cases' and improved version of 'induct'
wenzelm@10003
  1296
now support named cases; major packages (inductive, datatype, primrec,
wenzelm@10003
  1297
recdef) support case names and properly name parameters;
wenzelm@9612
  1298
wenzelm@10003
  1299
* Isar/HOL: new transitivity rules for substitution in inequalities --
wenzelm@10003
  1300
monotonicity conditions are extracted to be proven at end of
wenzelm@10003
  1301
calculations;
wenzelm@10003
  1302
wenzelm@10003
  1303
* Isar/HOL: removed 'case_split' thm binding, should use 'cases' proof
wenzelm@10003
  1304
method anyway;
wenzelm@10003
  1305
wenzelm@10003
  1306
* Isar/HOL: removed old expand_if = split_if; theorems if_splits =
wenzelm@10003
  1307
split_if split_if_asm; datatype package provides theorems foo.splits =
wenzelm@10003
  1308
foo.split foo.split_asm for each datatype;
wenzelm@10003
  1309
wenzelm@10003
  1310
* Isar/HOL: tuned inductive package, rename "intrs" to "intros"
wenzelm@10003
  1311
(potential INCOMPATIBILITY), emulation of mk_cases feature for proof
wenzelm@10003
  1312
scripts: new 'inductive_cases' command and 'ind_cases' method; (Note:
wenzelm@10003
  1313
use "(cases (simplified))" method in proper proof texts);
wenzelm@10003
  1314
wenzelm@10003
  1315
* Isar/HOL: added global 'arith_split' attribute for 'arith' method;
wenzelm@10003
  1316
wenzelm@10003
  1317
* Isar: names of theorems etc. may be natural numbers as well;
wenzelm@10003
  1318
wenzelm@10003
  1319
* Isar: 'pr' command: optional arguments for goals_limit and
wenzelm@9724
  1320
ProofContext.prems_limit; no longer prints theory contexts, but only
wenzelm@9724
  1321
proof states;
wenzelm@8487
  1322
wenzelm@10003
  1323
* Isar: diagnostic commands 'pr', 'thm', 'prop', 'term', 'typ' admit
wenzelm@8518
  1324
additional print modes to be specified; e.g. "pr(latex)" will print
wenzelm@8518
  1325
proof state according to the Isabelle LaTeX style;
wenzelm@8487
  1326
wenzelm@10003
  1327
* Isar: improved support for emulating tactic scripts, including proof
wenzelm@9612
  1328
methods 'rule_tac' etc., 'cut_tac', 'thin_tac', 'subgoal_tac',
wenzelm@9612
  1329
'rename_tac', 'rotate_tac', 'tactic', and 'case_tac' / 'induct_tac'
wenzelm@9612
  1330
(for HOL datatypes);
wenzelm@8534
  1331
wenzelm@10003
  1332
* Isar: simplified (more robust) goal selection of proof methods: 1st
wenzelm@10003
  1333
goal, all goals, or explicit goal specifier (tactic emulation); thus
wenzelm@10003
  1334
'proof method scripts' have to be in depth-first order;
wenzelm@8673
  1335
wenzelm@10003
  1336
* Isar: tuned 'let' syntax: replaced 'as' keyword by 'and';
wenzelm@8729
  1337
wenzelm@10003
  1338
* Isar: removed 'help' command, which hasn't been too helpful anyway;
wenzelm@10003
  1339
should instead use individual commands for printing items
wenzelm@10003
  1340
(print_commands, print_methods etc.);
wenzelm@9224
  1341
wenzelm@10003
  1342
* Isar: added 'nothing' --- the empty list of theorems;

* HOL/Prolog: a (bare-bones) implementation of Lambda-Prolog, by David
wenzelm@10003
  1369
von Oheimb;
paulson@9542
  1370
wenzelm@10164
  1371
* HOL/IMPP: extension of IMP with local variables and mutually
wenzelm@10164
  1372
recursive procedures, by David von Oheimb;
wenzelm@10164
  1373
wenzelm@10003
  1374
* HOL/Lambda: converted into new-style theory and document;
paulson@9542
  1375
wenzelm@10003
  1376
* HOL/ex/Multiquote: example of multiple nested quotations and
wenzelm@10003
  1377
anti-quotations -- basically a generalized version of de-Bruijn
wenzelm@10003
  1378
representation; very useful in avoiding lifting of operations;
wenzelm@8848
  1379
wenzelm@9612
  1380
* HOL/record: added general record equality rule to simpset; fixed
wenzelm@9612
  1381
select-update simplification procedure to handle extended records as
wenzelm@9612
  1382
well; admit "r" as field name;
paulson@9542
  1383
paulson@8967
  1384
* HOL: 0 is now overloaded over the new sort "zero", allowing its use with
paulson@8967
  1385
other numeric types and also as the identity of groups, rings, etc.;
paulson@8967
  1386
paulson@8967
  1387
* HOL: new axclass plus_ac0 for addition with the AC-laws and 0 as identity.
paulson@8967
  1388
Types nat and int belong to this axclass;
paulson@8967
  1389
wenzelm@10003
  1390
* HOL: greatly improved simplification involving numerals of type nat, int, real:
paulson@8788
  1391
   (i + #8 + j) = Suc k simplifies to  #7 + (i + j) = k
paulson@8832
  1392
   i*j + k + j*#3*i     simplifies to  #4*(i*j) + k
paulson@8832
  1393
  two terms #m*u and #n*u are replaced by #(m+n)*u
paulson@8832
  1394
    (where #m, #n and u can implicitly be 1; this is simproc combine_numerals)
paulson@8832
  1395
  and the term/formula #m*u+x ~~ #n*u+y simplifies simplifies to #(m-n)+x ~~ y
paulson@8832
  1396
    or x ~~ #(n-m)+y, where ~~ is one of = < <= or - (simproc cancel_numerals);
paulson@8736
  1397
wenzelm@10003
  1398
* HOL: meson_tac is available (previously in ex/meson.ML); it is a
wenzelm@10003
  1399
powerful prover for predicate logic but knows nothing of clasets; see
wenzelm@10003
  1400
ex/mesontest.ML and ex/mesontest2.ML for example applications;
paulson@9835
  1401
wenzelm@8848
  1402
* HOL: new version of "case_tac" subsumes both boolean case split and
wenzelm@8440
  1403
"exhaust_tac" on datatypes; INCOMPATIBILITY: exhaust_tac no longer
wenzelm@8518
  1404
exists, may define val exhaust_tac = case_tac for ad-hoc portability;
wenzelm@8440
  1405
wenzelm@8848
  1406
* HOL: simplification no longer dives into case-expressions: only the
wenzelm@10129
  1407
selector expression is simplified, but not the remaining arms; to
wenzelm@10129
  1408
enable full simplification of case-expressions for datatype t, you may
wenzelm@10129
  1409
remove t.weak_case_cong from the simpset, either globally (Delcongs
wenzelm@10129
  1410
[thm"t.weak_case_cong"];) or locally (delcongs [...]).
nipkow@8603
  1411
wenzelm@8848
  1412
* HOL/recdef: the recursion equations generated by 'recdef' for
wenzelm@8848
  1413
function 'f' are now called f.simps instead of f.rules; if all
wenzelm@8848
  1414
termination conditions are proved automatically, these simplification
wenzelm@8848
  1415
rules are added to the simpset, as in primrec; rules may be named
wenzelm@8848
  1416
individually as well, resulting in a separate list of theorems for
wenzelm@8848
  1417
each equation;
wenzelm@8848
  1418
wenzelm@9489
  1419
* HOL/While is a new theory that provides a while-combinator. It
wenzelm@9489
  1420
permits the definition of tail-recursive functions without the
wenzelm@9489
  1421
provision of a termination measure. The latter is necessary once the
wenzelm@9489
  1422
invariant proof rule for while is applied.
nipkow@9457
  1423
wenzelm@10003
  1424
* HOL: new (overloaded) notation for the set of elements below/above
wenzelm@10003
  1425
some element: {..u}, {..u(}, {l..}, {)l..}. See theory SetInterval.
nipkow@8925
  1426
wenzelm@8848
  1427
* HOL: theorems impI, allI, ballI bound as "strip";
wenzelm@8848
  1428
wenzelm@10003
  1429
* HOL: new tactic induct_thm_tac: thm -> string -> int -> tactic
nipkow@9746
  1430
induct_tac th "x1 ... xn" expects th to have a conclusion of the form
nipkow@9746
  1431
P v1 ... vn and abbreviates res_inst_tac [("v1","x1"),...,("vn","xn")] th;
nipkow@9746
  1432
wenzelm@10003
  1433
* HOL/Real: "rabs" replaced by overloaded "abs" function;
nipkow@9737
  1434
wenzelm@10003
  1435
* HOL: theory Sexp now in HOL/Induct examples (it used to be part of
wenzelm@10003
  1436
main HOL, but was unused);
nipkow@8626
  1437
wenzelm@10003
  1438
* HOL: fewer consts declared as global (e.g. have to refer to
wenzelm@10003
  1439
"Lfp.lfp" instead of "lfp" internally; affects ML packages only);
wenzelm@8887
  1440
wenzelm@10003
  1441
* HOL: tuned AST representation of nested pairs, avoiding bogus output
wenzelm@10003
  1442
in case of overlap with user translations (e.g. judgements over
wenzelm@10003
  1443
tuples); (note that the underlying logical represenation is still
wenzelm@10003
  1444
bogus);

*** ZF ***
paulson@9542
  1448
wenzelm@10003
  1449
* ZF: simplification automatically cancels common terms in arithmetic
wenzelm@10003
  1450
expressions over nat and int;
paulson@9542
  1451
wenzelm@10003
  1452
* ZF: new treatment of nat to minimize type-checking: all operators
wenzelm@10003
  1453
coerce their operands to a natural number using the function natify,
wenzelm@10003
  1454
making the algebraic laws unconditional;
paulson@9542
  1455
wenzelm@10003
  1456
* ZF: as above, for int: operators coerce their operands to an integer
wenzelm@10003
  1457
using the function intify;
paulson@9542
  1458
wenzelm@10003
  1459
* ZF: the integer library now contains many of the usual laws for the
wenzelm@10003
  1460
orderings, including $<=, and monotonicity laws for $+ and $*;
paulson@9542
  1461
wenzelm@10003
  1462
* ZF: new example ZF/ex/NatSum to demonstrate integer arithmetic
wenzelm@10003
  1463
simplification;
paulson@9388
  1464
wenzelm@10003
  1465
* FOL and ZF: AddIffs now available, giving theorems of the form P<->Q
wenzelm@10003
  1466
to the simplifier and classical reasoner simultaneously;

*** General ***
wenzelm@8358
  1470
wenzelm@10003
  1471
* Provers: blast_tac now handles actual object-logic rules as
wenzelm@10003
  1472
assumptions; note that auto_tac uses blast_tac internally as well;
wenzelm@10003
  1473
wenzelm@10003
  1474
* Provers: new functions rulify/rulify_no_asm: thm -> thm for turning
wenzelm@10003
  1475
outer -->/All/Ball into ==>/!!; qed_spec_mp now uses rulify_no_asm;
wenzelm@10003
  1476
wenzelm@9941
  1477
* Provers: delrules now handles destruct rules as well (no longer need
wenzelm@9941
  1478
explicit make_elim);
wenzelm@9941
  1479
wenzelm@10003
  1480
* Provers: Blast_tac now warns of and ignores "weak elimination rules" e.g.
wenzelm@10003
  1481
  [| inj ?f;          ?f ?x = ?f ?y; ?x = ?y ==> ?W |] ==> ?W
wenzelm@10003
  1482
use instead the strong form,
wenzelm@10003
  1483
  [| inj ?f; ~ ?W ==> ?f ?x = ?f ?y; ?x = ?y ==> ?W |] ==> ?W
wenzelm@10003
  1484
in HOL, FOL and ZF the function cla_make_elim will create such rules
wenzelm@10003
  1485
from destruct-rules;
wenzelm@9489
  1486
wenzelm@9709
  1487
* Provers: Simplifier.easy_setup provides a fast path to basic
wenzelm@9709
  1488
Simplifier setup for new object-logics;
wenzelm@9709
  1489
wenzelm@9709
  1490
* Pure: AST translation rules no longer require constant head on LHS;
wenzelm@9349
  1491
wenzelm@9709
  1492
* Pure: improved name spaces: ambiguous output is qualified; support
wenzelm@9709
  1493
for hiding of names;
wenzelm@8729
  1494
wenzelm@10003
  1495
* system: smart setup of canonical ML_HOME, ISABELLE_INTERFACE, and
wenzelm@10003
  1496
XSYMBOL_HOME; no longer need to do manual configuration in most
wenzelm@10003
  1497
situations;
wenzelm@10003
  1498
wenzelm@9709
  1499
* system: compression of ML heaps images may now be controlled via -c
wenzelm@9709
  1500
option of isabelle and isatool usedir (currently only observed by
wenzelm@9709
  1501
Poly/ML);
wenzelm@8358
  1502
wenzelm@9981
  1503
* system: isatool installfonts may handle X-Symbol fonts as well (very
wenzelm@9981
  1504
useful for remote X11);
wenzelm@9981
  1505
wenzelm@9709
  1506
* system: provide TAGS file for Isabelle sources;
wenzelm@9052
  1507
wenzelm@9288
  1508
* ML: infix 'OF' is a version of 'MRS' with more appropriate argument
wenzelm@9288
  1509
order;
wenzelm@9288
  1510
wenzelm@8994
  1511
* ML: renamed flags Syntax.trace_norm_ast to Syntax.trace_ast; global
wenzelm@8994
  1512
timing flag supersedes proof_timing and Toplevel.trace;
wenzelm@8994
  1513
wenzelm@10003
  1514
* ML: new combinators |>> and |>>> for incremental transformations
wenzelm@10003
  1515
with secondary results (e.g. certain theory extensions):
wenzelm@10003
  1516
wenzelm@9330
  1517
* ML: PureThy.add_defs gets additional argument to indicate potential
wenzelm@9330
  1518
overloading (usually false);
wenzelm@9330
  1519
wenzelm@10003
  1520
* ML: PureThy.add_thms/add_axioms/add_defs now return theorems as
wenzelm@10003
  1521

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES (see below for more details) ***
paulson@5931
  1529
paulson@6922
  1530
* HOL: The THEN and ELSE parts of conditional expressions (if P then x else y)
paulson@6922
  1531
are no longer simplified.  (This allows the simplifier to unfold recursive
paulson@6922
  1532
functional programs.)  To restore the old behaviour, declare
wenzelm@7215
  1533
wenzelm@7215
  1534
    Delcongs [if_weak_cong];
paulson@6922
  1535
wenzelm@6269
  1536
* HOL: Removed the obsolete syntax "Compl A"; use -A for set
wenzelm@6269
  1537
complement;
paulson@5931
  1538
wenzelm@6269
  1539
* HOL: the predicate "inj" is now defined by translation to "inj_on";
paulson@6174
  1540
berghofe@7847
  1541
* HOL/datatype: mutual_induct_tac no longer exists --
berghofe@7847
  1542
  use induct_tac "x_1 ... x_n" instead of mutual_induct_tac ["x_1", ..., "x_n"]
berghofe@7847
  1543
wenzelm@6386
  1544
* HOL/typedef: fixed type inference for representing set; type
wenzelm@6386
  1545
arguments now have to occur explicitly on the rhs as type constraints;
wenzelm@6386
  1546
wenzelm@6269
  1547
* ZF: The con_defs part of an inductive definition may no longer refer
wenzelm@6269
  1548
to constants declared in the same theory;
nipkow@6057
  1549
wenzelm@6269
  1550
* HOL, ZF: the function mk_cases, generated by the inductive
wenzelm@6269
  1551
definition package, has lost an argument.  To simplify its result, it
wenzelm@6269
  1552
uses the default simpset instead of a supplied list of theorems.
paulson@6141
  1553
wenzelm@7215
  1554
* HOL/List: the constructors of type list are now Nil and Cons;
wenzelm@7215
  1555
nipkow@7619
  1556
* Simplifier: the type of the infix ML functions
wenzelm@8729
  1557
        setSSolver addSSolver setSolver addSolver
nipkow@7619
  1558
is now  simpset * solver -> simpset  where `solver' is a new abstract type
nipkow@7619
  1559
for packaging solvers. A solver is created via
wenzelm@8729
  1560
        mk_solver: string -> (thm list -> int -> tactic) -> solver
nipkow@7619
  1561
where the string argument is only a comment.

*** Proof tools ***
paulson@6069
  1565
wenzelm@6343
  1566
* Provers/Arith/fast_lin_arith.ML contains a functor for creating a
wenzelm@6343
  1567
decision procedure for linear arithmetic. Currently it is used for
wenzelm@7593
  1568
types `nat', `int', and `real' in HOL (see below); it can, should and
wenzelm@7593
  1569
will be instantiated for other types and logics as well.
paulson@6069
  1570
nipkow@7324
  1571
* The simplifier now accepts rewrite rules with flexible heads, eg
nipkow@7324
  1572
     hom ?f ==> ?f(?x+?y) = ?f ?x + ?f ?y
nipkow@7324
  1573
  They are applied like any rule with a non-pattern lhs, i.e. by first-order
nipkow@7324
  1574
  matching.

* New Isabelle/Isar subsystem provides an alternative to traditional
wenzelm@7215
  1580
tactical theorem proving; together with the ProofGeneral/isar user
wenzelm@7215
  1581
interface it offers an interactive environment for developing human
wenzelm@7215
  1582
readable proof documents (Isar == Intelligible semi-automated
wenzelm@7886

src/HOL/Isar_examples and http://isabelle.in.tum.de/Isar/
wenzelm@7886
  1585
wenzelm@9612
  1586
* improved and simplified presentation of theories: better HTML markup
wenzelm@9612
  1587
(including colors), graph views in several sizes; isatool usedir now
wenzelm@9612
  1588
provides a proper interface for user theories (via -P option); actual
wenzelm@9612
  1589
document preparation based on (PDF)LaTeX is available as well (for
wenzelm@9612
  1590
new-style theories only); see isatool doc system for more information;
wenzelm@7215
  1591
wenzelm@7252
  1592
* native support for Proof General, both for classic Isabelle and
wenzelm@7986
  1593
Isabelle/Isar;
wenzelm@7215
  1594
wenzelm@7791
  1595
* ML function thm_deps visualizes dependencies of theorems and lemmas,
wenzelm@7791
  1596
using the graph browser tool;
wenzelm@7791
  1597
wenzelm@6751
  1598
* Isabelle manuals now also available as PDF;
wenzelm@6751
  1599
wenzelm@6449
  1600
* theory loader rewritten from scratch (may not be fully
wenzelm@6449
  1601
bug-compatible); old loadpath variable has been replaced by show_path,
wenzelm@6671
  1602
add_path, del_path, reset_path functions; new operations such as
wenzelm@7593
  1603
update_thy, touch_thy, remove_thy, use/update_thy_only (see also
wenzelm@7593
  1604
isatool doc ref);
wenzelm@6449
  1605
wenzelm@7215
  1606
* improved isatool install: option -k creates KDE application icon,
wenzelm@7215
  1607
option -p DIR installs standalone binaries;
wenzelm@7215
  1608
wenzelm@7215
  1609
* added ML_PLATFORM setting (useful for cross-platform installations);
wenzelm@7215
  1610
more robust handling of platform specific ML images for SML/NJ;
wenzelm@7215
  1611
wenzelm@7886
  1612
* the settings environment is now statically scoped, i.e. it is never
wenzelm@7986
  1613

wenzelm@7886
  1614
Isabelle;
wenzelm@7886
  1615

wenzelm@5973
  1620
wenzelm@6269

* new shorthand tactics ftac, eatac, datac, fatac;
wenzelm@7593
  1646
wenzelm@7593

* qed (and friends) now accept "" as result name; in that case the
wenzelm@7986

wenzelm@7986

** HOL arithmetic **
wenzelm@7215
  1658
wenzelm@6343
  1659
* There are now decision procedures for linear arithmetic over nat and
wenzelm@6343
  1660
int:
nipkow@6131
  1661
wenzelm@6343
  1662
1. arith_tac copes with arbitrary formulae involving `=', `<', `<=',
wenzelm@6343
  1663
`+', `-', `Suc', `min', `max' and numerical constants; other subterms
wenzelm@6343
  1664
are treated as atomic; subformulae not involving type `nat' or `int'
wenzelm@6343
  1665
are ignored; quantified subformulae are ignored unless they are
wenzelm@6343
  1666
positive universal or negative existential. The tactic has to be
wenzelm@6343
  1667
invoked by hand and can be a little bit slow. In particular, the
wenzelm@6343
  1668
running time is exponential in the number of occurrences of `min' and
wenzelm@6343
  1669
`max', and `-' on `nat'.
nipkow@6131
  1670
wenzelm@6343
  1671
2. fast_arith_tac is a cut-down version of arith_tac: it only takes
wenzelm@6343
  1672
(negated) (in)equalities among the premises and the conclusion into
wenzelm@6343
  1673
account (i.e. no compound formulae) and does not know about `min' and
wenzelm@6343
  1674
`max', and `-' on `nat'. It is fast and is used automatically by the
wenzelm@6343
  1675
simplifier.
nipkow@6131
  1676
wenzelm@6343
  1677
NB: At the moment, these decision procedures do not cope with mixed
wenzelm@6343
  1678
nat/int formulae where the two parts interact, such as `m < n ==>
wenzelm@6343
  1679
int(m) < int(n)'.
oheimb@6028
  1680
wenzelm@7215
  1681
* HOL/Numeral provides a generic theory of numerals (encoded
wenzelm@7313
  1682
efficiently as bit strings); setup for types nat/int/real is in place;
wenzelm@7215
  1683
INCOMPATIBILITY: since numeral syntax is now polymorphic, rather than
wenzelm@7215
  1684
int, existing theories and proof scripts may require a few additional
wenzelm@7215
  1685
type constraints;
wenzelm@7215
  1686
wenzelm@7215
  1687
* integer division and remainder can now be performed on constant
wenzelm@7215
  1688
arguments;
paulson@7157
  1689
wenzelm@7215
  1690
* many properties of integer multiplication, division and remainder
wenzelm@7215
  1691
are now available;
paulson@6922
  1692
paulson@7287
  1693
* An interface to the Stanford Validity Checker (SVC) is available through the
paulson@7287
  1694
tactic svc_tac.  Propositional tautologies and theorems of linear arithmetic
paulson@7287
  1695
are proved automatically.  SVC must be installed separately, and its results
paulson@7287
  1696
must be TAKEN ON TRUST (Isabelle does not check the proofs, but tags any
paulson@7287
  1697
invocation of the underlying oracle).  For SVC see

wenzelm@7691
  1709
analysis for assembly languages with subtypes;
wenzelm@7691
  1710
wenzelm@6278
  1711
* HOL/TLA (Lamport's Temporal Logic of Actions): major reorganization
wenzelm@6278
  1712
-- avoids syntactic ambiguities and treats state, transition, and
wenzelm@6278
  1713
temporal levels more uniformly; introduces INCOMPATIBILITIES due to
wenzelm@6278
  1714
changed syntax and (many) tactics;
wenzelm@6278
  1715
wenzelm@7791
  1716
* HOL/inductive: Now also handles more general introduction rules such
wenzelm@7791
  1717
  as "ALL y. (y, x) : r --> y : acc r ==> x : acc r"; monotonicity
wenzelm@7791
  1718
  theorems are now maintained within the theory (maintained via the
wenzelm@7791
  1719
  "mono" attribute);
berghofe@7780
  1720
wenzelm@7238
  1721
* HOL/datatype: Now also handles arbitrarily branching datatypes
wenzelm@7238
  1722
  (using function types) such as
wenzelm@7238
  1723
wenzelm@7238
  1724
  datatype 'a tree = Atom 'a | Branch "nat => 'a tree"
berghofe@7047

wenzelm@7326
  1726
* HOL/record: record_simproc (part of the default simpset) takes care
wenzelm@7326
  1727
of selectors applied to updated records; record_split_tac is no longer
wenzelm@7327
  1728
part of the default claset; update_defs may now be removed from the
wenzelm@7327
  1729
simpset in many cases; COMPATIBILITY: old behavior achieved by
wenzelm@7326
  1730
wenzelm@7326

wenzelm@6386

* HOL/typedef: fixed type inference for representing set; type
wenzelm@6386
  1735
arguments now have to occur explicitly on the rhs as type constraints;
wenzelm@6386
  1736
paulson@7287
  1737
* HOL/recdef (TFL): 'congs' syntax now expects comma separated list of theorem
paulson@7287
  1738
names rather than an ML expression;
paulson@7287
  1739
paulson@7287
  1740
* HOL/defer_recdef (TFL): like recdef but the well-founded relation can be
paulson@7287
  1741
supplied later.  Program schemes can be defined, such as
paulson@7287
  1742
    "While B C s = (if B s then While B C (C s) else s)"
paulson@7287
  1743
where the well-founded relation can be chosen after B and C have been given.
wenzelm@6563
  1744
wenzelm@7215
  1745
* HOL/List: the constructors of type list are now Nil and Cons;
wenzelm@7215
  1746
INCOMPATIBILITY: while [] and infix # syntax is still there, of
wenzelm@7215
  1747
course, ML tools referring to List.list.op # etc. have to be adapted;
wenzelm@7215
  1748
wenzelm@7238
  1749
* HOL_quantifiers flag superseded by "HOL" print mode, which is
wenzelm@7238
  1750
disabled by default; run isabelle with option -m HOL to get back to
wenzelm@7238
  1751
the original Gordon/HOL-style output;
wenzelm@7238
  1752
wenzelm@7238
  1753
* HOL/Ord.thy: new bounded quantifier syntax (input only): ALL x<y. P,
wenzelm@7238
  1754
ALL x<=y. P, EX x<y. P, EX x<=y. P;
wenzelm@7238
  1755
wenzelm@7238
  1756
* HOL basic syntax simplified (more orthogonal): all variants of
wenzelm@7238
  1757
All/Ex now support plain / symbolic / HOL notation; plain syntax for
wenzelm@7238
  1758
Eps operator is provided as well: "SOME x. P[x]";
wenzelm@7238
  1759
berghofe@7320
  1760
* HOL/Sum.thy: sum_case has been moved to HOL/Datatype;
wenzelm@7261
  1761
wenzelm@7280
  1762
* HOL/Univ.thy: infix syntax <*>, <+>, <**>, <+> eliminated and made
wenzelm@7280
  1763
thus available for user theories;
wenzelm@7280
  1764
wenzelm@7300
  1765
* HOLCF/IOA/Sequents: renamed 'Cons' to 'Consq' to avoid clash with
wenzelm@7300
  1766
HOL/List; hardly an INCOMPATIBILITY since '>>' syntax is used all the
wenzelm@7300
  1767

wenzelm@7300
  1768
wenzelm@7986

paulson@6064
  1789
wenzelm@6269

paulson@6064
  1792
paulson@6064
  1793
* the datatype declaration of type T now defines the recursor T_rec;

wenzelm@6269

  1800
wenzelm@6269

  1803
wenzelm@6269
  1804

wenzelm@7420
  1814
wenzelm@6386

* AxClass.axclass_tac lost the theory argument;
wenzelm@6386
  1816
wenzelm@6343
  1817
* tuned current_goals_markers semantics: begin / end goal avoids
wenzelm@6343
  1818
printing empty lines;
wenzelm@6343
  1819
wenzelm@6343
  1820
* removed prs and prs_fn hook, which was broken because it did not
wenzelm@6343
  1821
include \n in its semantics, forcing writeln to add one
wenzelm@6343
  1822
uncoditionally; replaced prs_fn by writeln_fn; consider std_output:
wenzelm@6343
  1823
string -> unit if you really want to output text without newline;
wenzelm@6343
  1824
wenzelm@6343
  1825
* Symbol.output subject to print mode; INCOMPATIBILITY: defaults to
wenzelm@6343
  1826
plain output, interface builders may have to enable 'isabelle_font'
wenzelm@6343
  1827
mode to get Isabelle font glyphs as before;
wenzelm@6343
  1828
wenzelm@6343
  1829
* refined token_translation interface; INCOMPATIBILITY: output length
wenzelm@6343
  1830

wenzelm@6343
  1831
wenzelm@7196
  1832
* theory loader actions may be traced via new ThyInfo.add_hook
wenzelm@7196

wenzelm@7196
  1834
your own database of information attached to *whole* theories -- as
wenzelm@7196
  1835
opposed to intra-theory data slots offered via TheoryDataFun;
wenzelm@7196
  1836
wenzelm@7647
  1837
* proper handling of dangling sort hypotheses (at last!);
wenzelm@7647
  1838
Thm.strip_shyps and Drule.strip_shyps_warning take care of removing
wenzelm@7647
  1839
extra sort hypotheses that can be witnessed from the type signature;
wenzelm@7986
  1840
the force_strip_shyps flag is gone, any remaining shyps are simply
wenzelm@7986

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES (see below for more details) ***
wenzelm@4842
  1849
wenzelm@5726
  1850
* several changes of automated proof tools;
wenzelm@5373
  1851
wenzelm@5726
  1852
* HOL: major changes to the inductive and datatype packages, including
wenzelm@5726
  1853
some minor incompatibilities of theory syntax;
berghofe@5214
  1854
wenzelm@5726
  1855
* HOL: renamed r^-1 to 'converse' from 'inverse'; 'inj_onto' is now
wenzelm@5217
  1856
called `inj_on';
paulson@5160
  1857
nipkow@5275
  1858
* HOL: removed duplicate thms in Arith:
nipkow@5275
  1859
  less_imp_add_less  should be replaced by  trans_less_add1
nipkow@5275
  1860
  le_imp_add_le      should be replaced by  trans_le_add1
paulson@5160
  1861
wenzelm@5726
  1862
* HOL: unary minus is now overloaded (new type constraints may be
wenzelm@5726
  1863
required);
paulson@5490
  1864
wenzelm@5726
  1865
* HOL and ZF: unary minus for integers is now #- instead of #~.  In
wenzelm@5726
  1866
ZF, expressions such as n#-1 must be changed to n#- 1, since #-1 is
wenzelm@5726
  1867
now taken as an integer constant.
paulson@5541
  1868
wenzelm@5726
  1869
* Pure: ML function 'theory_of' renamed to 'theory';
wenzelm@5397

wenzelm@5127
  1872
*** Proof tools ***
nipkow@4880
  1873
nipkow@5657
  1874
* Simplifier:
nipkow@5657
  1875
  1. Asm_full_simp_tac is now more aggressive.
nipkow@5657
  1876
     1. It will sometimes reorient premises if that increases their power to
nipkow@5657
  1877
        simplify.
nipkow@5657
  1878
     2. It does no longer proceed strictly from left to right but may also
nipkow@5657
  1879
        rotate premises to achieve further simplification.
nipkow@5657
  1880
     For compatibility reasons there is now Asm_lr_simp_tac which is like the
nipkow@5657
  1881
     old Asm_full_simp_tac in that it does not rotate premises.
nipkow@5657
  1882
  2. The simplifier now knows a little bit about nat-arithmetic.
nipkow@4880
  1883
wenzelm@5127
  1884
* Classical reasoner: wrapper mechanism for the classical reasoner now
wenzelm@5127
  1885
allows for selected deletion of wrappers, by introduction of names for
wenzelm@5127
  1886
wrapper functionals.  This implies that addbefore, addSbefore,
wenzelm@5127
  1887
addaltern, and addSaltern now take a pair (name, tactic) as argument,
wenzelm@5127
  1888
and that adding two tactics with the same name overwrites the first
wenzelm@5127
  1889
one (emitting a warning).
oheimb@4824
  1890
  type wrapper = (int -> tactic) -> (int -> tactic)
oheimb@4649
  1891
  setWrapper, setSWrapper, compWrapper and compSWrapper are replaced by
oheimb@4824
  1892
  addWrapper, addSWrapper: claset * (string * wrapper) -> claset
oheimb@4824
  1893
  delWrapper, delSWrapper: claset *  string            -> claset
oheimb@4649
  1894
  getWrapper is renamed to appWrappers, getSWrapper to appSWrappers;
oheimb@4649
  1895
wenzelm@5705
  1896
* Classical reasoner: addbefore/addSbefore now have APPEND/ORELSE
wenzelm@5726
  1897
semantics; addbefore now affects only the unsafe part of step_tac
wenzelm@5726
  1898
etc.; this affects addss/auto_tac/force_tac, so EXISTING PROOFS MAY
wenzelm@5726
  1899
FAIL, but proofs should be fixable easily, e.g. by replacing Auto_tac
wenzelm@5726
  1900
by Force_tac;
oheimb@5524
  1901
wenzelm@5726
  1902
* Classical reasoner: setwrapper to setWrapper and compwrapper to
wenzelm@5726
  1903
compWrapper; added safe wrapper (and access functions for it);
oheimb@5524
  1904
wenzelm@5127
  1905
* HOL/split_all_tac is now much faster and fails if there is nothing
wenzelm@5726
  1906
to split.  Some EXISTING PROOFS MAY REQUIRE ADAPTION because the order
wenzelm@5726
  1907
and the names of the automatically generated variables have changed.
wenzelm@5726
  1908
split_all_tac has moved within claset() from unsafe wrappers to safe
wenzelm@5726
  1909
wrappers, which means that !!-bound variables are split much more
wenzelm@5726
  1910
aggressively, and safe_tac and clarify_tac now split such variables.
wenzelm@5726
  1911
If this splitting is not appropriate, use delSWrapper "split_all_tac".
wenzelm@5726
  1912
Note: the same holds for record_split_tac, which does the job of
wenzelm@5726
  1913
split_all_tac for record fields.
wenzelm@5127
  1914
wenzelm@5726
  1915
* HOL/Simplifier: Rewrite rules for case distinctions can now be added
wenzelm@5726
  1916
permanently to the default simpset using Addsplits just like
wenzelm@5726
  1917
Addsimps. They can be removed via Delsplits just like
wenzelm@5726
  1918
Delsimps. Lower-case versions are also available.
wenzelm@5127
  1919
wenzelm@5726
  1920
* HOL/Simplifier: The rule split_if is now part of the default
wenzelm@5726
  1921
simpset. This means that the simplifier will eliminate all occurrences
wenzelm@5726
  1922
of if-then-else in the conclusion of a goal. To prevent this, you can
wenzelm@5726
  1923
either remove split_if completely from the default simpset by
wenzelm@5726
  1924
`Delsplits [split_if]' or remove it in a specific call of the
wenzelm@5726
  1925
simplifier using `... delsplits [split_if]'.  You can also add/delete
wenzelm@5726
  1926
other case splitting rules to/from the default simpset: every datatype
wenzelm@5726

* Classical reasoner / Simplifier combination: new force_tac (and
wenzelm@5127
  1931
derivatives Force_tac, force) combines rewriting and classical
wenzelm@5127

  1938
* new top-level commands `Goal' and `Goalw' that improve upon `goal'
wenzelm@5127
  1939
and `goalw': the theory is no longer needed as an explicit argument -
wenzelm@5127
  1940
the current theory context is used; assumptions are no longer returned
wenzelm@5127
  1941
at the ML-level unless one of them starts with ==> or !!; it is
wenzelm@5217
  1942
recommended to convert to these new commands using isatool fixgoal
wenzelm@5217
  1943
(backup your sources first!);
wenzelm@4842
  1944
wenzelm@5217
  1945
* new top-level commands 'thm' and 'thms' for retrieving theorems from
wenzelm@5207
  1946
the current theory context, and 'theory' to lookup stored theories;
paulson@4806
  1947
paulson@5722
  1948
* new theory section 'locale' for declaring constants, assumptions and
paulson@5722
  1949
definitions that have local scope;
paulson@5722
  1950
wenzelm@5127

  1952
wenzelm@5127
  1953
* new theory section 'setup' for generic ML setup functions

  1954
(e.g. package initialization);
wenzelm@4869
  1955
wenzelm@5131
  1956

  1960
ISABELLE_HOME/bin;
wenzelm@5363
  1961
wenzelm@5572
  1962

wenzelm@5217
  1975
* HOL/inductive package reorganized and improved: now supports mutual
paulson@5267
  1976
definitions such as

  1978
  inductive EVEN ODD

wenzelm@5217
  1984
new theorem list "elims" contains an elimination rule for each of the
wenzelm@5217

recursive sets; inductive definitions now handle disjunctive premises
wenzelm@5217
  1986
correctly (also ZF);
berghofe@5214
  1987
wenzelm@5217
  1988
INCOMPATIBILITIES: requires Inductive as an ancestor; component
wenzelm@5217
  1989
"mutual_induct" no longer exists - the induction rule is always
wenzelm@5217
  1990
contained in "induct";
wenzelm@5217
  1991
wenzelm@5217
  1992
wenzelm@5217
  1993
* HOL/datatype package re-implemented and greatly improved: now
paulson@5267
  1994
supports mutually recursive datatypes such as
wenzelm@5217
  1995
wenzelm@5217
  1996
  datatype
wenzelm@5217
  1997
    'a aexp = IF_THEN_ELSE ('a bexp) ('a aexp) ('a aexp)

            | OR ('a bexp) ('a bexp)
wenzelm@5217
  2005
paulson@5267

  2012
The new tactic  mutual_induct_tac [<var_1>, ..., <var_n>] i  performs
wenzelm@5217
  2013
induction on mutually / indirectly recursive datatypes.
wenzelm@5217
  2014
wenzelm@5217
  2015
Primrec equations are now stored in theory and can be accessed via
wenzelm@5217
  2016
<function_name>.simps.
wenzelm@5217
  2017
wenzelm@5217
  2018
INCOMPATIBILITIES:
berghofe@5214
  2019
wenzelm@5217
  2020
  - Theories using datatypes must now have theory Datatype as an
wenzelm@5217
  2021
    ancestor.
wenzelm@5217
  2022
  - The specific <typename>.induct_tac no longer exists - use the
wenzelm@5217
  2023
    generic induct_tac instead.
berghofe@5226
  2024
  - natE has been renamed to nat.exhaust - use exhaust_tac
wenzelm@5217
  2025
    instead of res_inst_tac ... natE. Note that the variable
berghofe@5226
  2026
    names in nat.exhaust differ from the names in natE, this
wenzelm@5217
  2027
    may cause some "fragile" proofs to fail.
wenzelm@5217
  2028
  - The theorems split_<typename>_case and split_<typename>_case_asm
wenzelm@5217
  2029
    have been renamed to <typename>.split and <typename>.split_asm.
wenzelm@5217
  2030
  - Since default sorts of type variables are now handled correctly,
wenzelm@5217
  2031
    some datatype definitions may have to be annotated with explicit
wenzelm@5217
  2032
    sort constraints.
wenzelm@5217
  2033
  - Primrec definitions no longer require function name and type
wenzelm@5217
  2034
    of recursive argument.
berghofe@5214
  2035
wenzelm@5217
  2036
Consider using isatool fixdatatype to adapt your theories and proof
wenzelm@5217
  2037
scripts to the new package (backup your sources first!).
wenzelm@5217
  2038
wenzelm@5217
  2039
wenzelm@5726
  2040
* HOL/record package: considerably improved implementation; now
wenzelm@5726
  2041
includes concrete syntax for record types, terms, updates; theorems
wenzelm@5726
  2042
for surjective pairing and splitting !!-bound record variables; proof
wenzelm@5726
  2043
support is as follows:
wenzelm@5726
  2044
wenzelm@5726
  2045
  1) standard conversions (selectors or updates applied to record
wenzelm@5726
  2046
constructor terms) are part of the standard simpset;
wenzelm@5726
  2047
wenzelm@5726
  2048
  2) inject equations of the form ((x, y) = (x', y')) == x=x' & y=y' are
wenzelm@5726
  2049
made part of standard simpset and claset via addIffs;
wenzelm@5726
  2050
wenzelm@5726
  2051
  3) a tactic for record field splitting (record_split_tac) is part of
wenzelm@5726
  2052
the standard claset (addSWrapper);
wenzelm@5726
  2053
wenzelm@5726
  2054
To get a better idea about these rules you may retrieve them via
wenzelm@5726
  2055
something like 'thms "foo.simps"' or 'thms "foo.iffs"', where "foo" is
wenzelm@5726
  2056
the name of your record type.
wenzelm@5726
  2057
wenzelm@5726
  2058
The split tactic 3) conceptually simplifies by the following rule:
wenzelm@5726
  2059
wenzelm@5726
  2060
  "(!!x. PROP ?P x) == (!!a b. PROP ?P (a, b))"
wenzelm@5726
  2061
wenzelm@5726
  2062
Thus any record variable that is bound by meta-all will automatically
wenzelm@5726
  2063
blow up into some record constructor term, consequently the
wenzelm@5726
  2064
simplifications of 1), 2) apply.  Thus force_tac, auto_tac etc. shall
wenzelm@5726
  2065
solve record problems automatically.
wenzelm@5726
  2066
berghofe@5214
  2067
wenzelm@5125
  2068
* reorganized the main HOL image: HOL/Integ and String loaded by
wenzelm@5125
  2069
default; theory Main includes everything;
wenzelm@5125
  2070
paulson@5650
  2071
* automatic simplification of integer sums and comparisons, using cancellation;
paulson@5650
  2072
oheimb@5526
  2073
* added option_map_eq_Some and not_Some_eq to the default simpset and claset;
wenzelm@5127
  2074
wenzelm@5127
  2075
* added disj_not1 = "(~P | Q) = (P --> Q)" to the default simpset;
wenzelm@5127
  2076
wenzelm@5127
  2077
* many new identities for unions, intersections, set difference, etc.;
wenzelm@5127
  2078
wenzelm@5127
  2079
* expand_if, expand_split, expand_sum_case and expand_nat_case are now
wenzelm@5127
  2080
called split_if, split_split, split_sum_case and split_nat_case (to go
wenzelm@5127
  2081
with add/delsplits);
wenzelm@5125
  2082
wenzelm@5127
  2083
* HOL/Prod introduces simplification procedure unit_eq_proc rewriting
wenzelm@5127
  2084
(?x::unit) = (); this is made part of the default simpset, which COULD
wenzelm@5127
  2085
MAKE EXISTING PROOFS FAIL under rare circumstances (consider
wenzelm@5207
  2086
'Delsimprocs [unit_eq_proc];' as last resort); also note that
wenzelm@5207
  2087
unit_abs_eta_conv is added in order to counter the effect of
wenzelm@5207
  2088
unit_eq_proc on (%u::unit. f u), replacing it by f rather than by
wenzelm@5207
  2089
%u.f();
wenzelm@5125
  2090
wenzelm@5217
  2091
* HOL/Fun INCOMPATIBILITY: `inj_onto' is now called `inj_on' (which
wenzelm@5217
  2092
makes more sense);
berghofe@5109
  2093
paulson@5475
  2094
* HOL/Set INCOMPATIBILITY: rule `equals0D' is now a well-formed destruct rule;
paulson@5475
  2095
  It and 'sym RS equals0D' are now in the default  claset, giving automatic
paulson@5475
  2096
  disjointness reasoning but breaking a few old proofs.
paulson@5267
  2097
wenzelm@5217
  2098
* HOL/Relation INCOMPATIBILITY: renamed the relational operator r^-1
wenzelm@5217
  2099
to 'converse' from 'inverse' (for compatibility with ZF and some
wenzelm@5217
  2100
literature);
wenzelm@5085
  2101
wenzelm@5127
  2102
* HOL/recdef can now declare non-recursive functions, with {} supplied as
wenzelm@5127
  2103
the well-founded relation;
oheimb@4838
  2104
paulson@5490
  2105
* HOL/Set INCOMPATIBILITY: the complement of set A is now written -A instead of
paulson@5490
  2106
    Compl A.  The "Compl" syntax remains available as input syntax for this
paulson@5490
  2107
    release ONLY.
paulson@5490
  2108
wenzelm@5127
  2109
* HOL/Update: new theory of function updates:
wenzelm@5127
  2110
    f(a:=b) == %x. if x=a then b else f x
wenzelm@5127
  2111
may also be iterated as in f(a:=b,c:=d,...);
nipkow@5077
  2112
wenzelm@5127

* HOL/Vimage: new theory for inverse image of a function, syntax f-``B;
paulson@4899
  2114
nipkow@5282
  2115
* HOL/List:
nipkow@5282
  2116
  - new function list_update written xs[i:=v] that updates the i-th
nipkow@5282
  2117
    list position. May also be iterated as in xs[i:=a,j:=b,...].
nipkow@5428
  2118
  - new function `upt' written [i..j(] which generates the list
nipkow@5428
  2119
    [i,i+1,...,j-1], i.e. the upper bound is excluded. To include the upper
nipkow@5428
  2120
    bound write [i..j], which is a shorthand for [i..j+1(].
nipkow@5282
  2121
  - new lexicographic orderings and corresponding wellfoundedness theorems.
paulson@4779
  2122
wenzelm@5127
  2123
* HOL/Arith:
wenzelm@5127
  2124
  - removed 'pred' (predecessor) function;
wenzelm@5127
  2125
  - generalized some theorems about n-1;
wenzelm@5127
  2126
  - many new laws about "div" and "mod";
wenzelm@5127
  2127
  - new laws about greatest common divisors (see theory ex/Primes);
oheimb@4766
  2128
wenzelm@5127
  2129
* HOL/Relation: renamed the relational operator r^-1 "converse"
wenzelm@4842
  2130
instead of "inverse";
wenzelm@4711
  2131
nipkow@5651
  2132
* HOL/Induct/Multiset: a theory of multisets, including the wellfoundedness
nipkow@5651

wenzelm@5127
  2135

nipkow@5651
  2140
* directory HOL/Hoare: a new version of Hoare logic which permits many-sorted

  programs, i.e. different program variables may have different types.
nipkow@5651
  2142
paulson@5142

paulson@5142
  2144
  [previously, this check worked only if the rewrite rule was unconditional]
paulson@5308

* simpset (and claset) reference variable replaced by functions
wenzelm@4410
  2213
simpset / simpset_ref;
wenzelm@4410
  2214
wenzelm@4410
  2215
* no longer supports theory aliases (via merge) and non-trivial
wenzelm@4410
  2216
implicit merge of thms' signatures;
wenzelm@4410
  2217
wenzelm@4410
  2218
* most internal names of constants changed due to qualified names;
wenzelm@4410
  2219
wenzelm@4410
  2220
* changed Pure/Sequence interface (see Pure/seq.ML);

*** General Changes ***
paulson@3715
  2224
wenzelm@4174
  2225
* hierachically structured name spaces (for consts, types, axms, thms
wenzelm@3943
  2226
etc.); new lexical class 'longid' (e.g. Foo.bar.x) may render much of
wenzelm@4108
  2227
old input syntactically incorrect (e.g. "%x.x"); COMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@4108
  2228
isatool fixdots ensures space after dots (e.g. "%x. x"); set
wenzelm@4174
  2229
long_names for fully qualified output names; NOTE: ML programs
wenzelm@4174
  2230
(special tactics, packages etc.) referring to internal names may have
wenzelm@4174
  2231
to be adapted to cope with fully qualified names; in case of severe
wenzelm@4174
  2232
backward campatibility problems try setting 'global_names' at compile
wenzelm@4174
  2233
time to have enrything declared within a flat name space; one may also
wenzelm@4174
  2234
fine tune name declarations in theories via the 'global' and 'local'
wenzelm@4174
  2235
section;
wenzelm@4108
  2236
wenzelm@4108
  2237
* reimplemented the implicit simpset and claset using the new anytype
wenzelm@4108
  2238
data filed in signatures; references simpset:simpset ref etc. are
wenzelm@4108
  2239
replaced by functions simpset:unit->simpset and
wenzelm@4108
  2240
simpset_ref:unit->simpset ref; COMPATIBILITY: use isatool fixclasimp
wenzelm@4108
  2241
to patch your ML files accordingly;
paulson@3856
  2242
wenzelm@3857
  2243
* HTML output now includes theory graph data for display with Java
wenzelm@3857
  2244
applet or isatool browser; data generated automatically via isatool
wenzelm@3901
  2245
usedir (see -i option, ISABELLE_USEDIR_OPTIONS);
wenzelm@3857
  2246
paulson@3856
  2247
* defs may now be conditional; improved rewrite_goals_tac to handle
paulson@3856
  2248
conditional equations;
paulson@3856
  2249
wenzelm@4174
  2250
* defs now admits additional type arguments, using TYPE('a) syntax;
wenzelm@4174
  2251
wenzelm@3901
  2252
* theory aliases via merge (e.g. M=A+B+C) no longer supported, always
wenzelm@3901
  2253
creates a new theory node; implicit merge of thms' signatures is
wenzelm@4112
  2254
restricted to 'trivial' ones; COMPATIBILITY: one may have to use
wenzelm@3901
  2255
transfer:theory->thm->thm in (rare) cases;
wenzelm@3901
  2256
wenzelm@3968
  2257
* improved handling of draft signatures / theories; draft thms (and
wenzelm@3968
  2258
ctyps, cterms) are automatically promoted to real ones;
wenzelm@3968
  2259
wenzelm@3901
  2260
* slightly changed interfaces for oracles: admit many per theory, named
wenzelm@3901
  2261
(e.g. oracle foo = mlfun), additional name argument for invoke_oracle;
wenzelm@3901
  2262
wenzelm@3901
  2263
* print_goals: optional output of const types (set show_consts and
wenzelm@3901
  2264
show_types);
wenzelm@3851
  2265
wenzelm@4388
  2266
* improved output of warnings (###) and errors (***);
wenzelm@3697
  2267
paulson@4178
  2268
* subgoal_tac displays a warning if the new subgoal has type variables;
paulson@4178
  2269
paulson@3715
  2270
* removed old README and Makefiles;
wenzelm@3697
  2271
paulson@3856
  2272
* replaced print_goals_ref hook by print_current_goals_fn and result_error_fn;
wenzelm@3670
  2273
paulson@3715
  2274
* removed obsolete init_pps and init_database;
paulson@3715
  2275
paulson@3715
  2276
* deleted the obsolete tactical STATE, which was declared by
paulson@3715
  2277
    fun STATE tacfun st = tacfun st st;
paulson@3715
  2278
wenzelm@4388
  2279
* cd and use now support path variables, e.g. $ISABELLE_HOME, or ~
wenzelm@4388
  2280
(which abbreviates $HOME);
wenzelm@4269
  2281
wenzelm@4269
  2282
* changed Pure/Sequence interface (see Pure/seq.ML); COMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@4269
  2283
use isatool fixseq to adapt your ML programs (this works for fully
wenzelm@4269
  2284
qualified references to the Sequence structure only!);
wenzelm@4269
  2285
wenzelm@4381
  2286
* use_thy no longer requires writable current directory; it always
wenzelm@4381
  2287
reloads .ML *and* .thy file, if either one is out of date;
wenzelm@4269
  2288
paulson@3715
  2289
paulson@3715
  2290
*** Classical Reasoner ***
paulson@3715
  2291
wenzelm@3744
  2292
* Clarify_tac, clarify_tac, clarify_step_tac, Clarify_step_tac: new
wenzelm@3744
  2293
tactics that use classical reasoning to simplify a subgoal without
wenzelm@3744
  2294
splitting it into several subgoals;
paulson@3715
  2295
paulson@3719
  2296
* Safe_tac: like safe_tac but uses the default claset;
paulson@3719
  2297
paulson@3715
  2298
paulson@3715
  2299
*** Simplifier ***
paulson@3715
  2300
paulson@3715
  2301
* added simplification meta rules:
paulson@3715
  2302
    (asm_)(full_)simplify: simpset -> thm -> thm;
paulson@3715
  2303
paulson@3715
  2304
* simplifier.ML no longer part of Pure -- has to be loaded by object
paulson@3715
  2305
logics (again);
paulson@3715
  2306
paulson@3715
  2307
* added prems argument to simplification procedures;
paulson@3715
  2308
paulson@4325
  2309
* HOL, FOL, ZF: added infix function `addsplits':
paulson@4325
  2310
  instead of `<simpset> setloop (split_tac <thms>)'
paulson@4325
  2311
  you can simply write `<simpset> addsplits <thms>'
paulson@4325
  2312
paulson@3715
  2313
paulson@3715
  2314
*** Syntax ***
paulson@3715
  2315
wenzelm@4174
  2316
* TYPE('a) syntax for type reflection terms;
wenzelm@4174
  2317
wenzelm@3985
  2318
* no longer handles consts with name "" -- declare as 'syntax' instead;
paulson@3856
  2319
paulson@3856
  2320
* pretty printer: changed order of mixfix annotation preference (again!);
wenzelm@3846
  2321
paulson@3715
  2322
* Pure: fixed idt/idts vs. pttrn/pttrns syntactic categories;
paulson@3715
  2323
paulson@3715
  2324
paulson@3715
  2325
*** HOL ***
paulson@3715
  2326
wenzelm@5726
  2327
* HOL: there is a new splitter `split_asm_tac' that can be used e.g.
oheimb@4189
  2328
  with `addloop' of the simplifier to faciliate case splitting in premises.
oheimb@4189
  2329
nipkow@4035
  2330
* HOL/TLA: Stephan Merz's formalization of Lamport's Temporal Logic of Actions;
wenzelm@3985
  2331
wenzelm@3985
  2332
* HOL/Auth: new protocol proofs including some for the Internet
nipkow@4035
  2333
  protocol TLS;
wenzelm@3985
  2334
wenzelm@4125
  2335
* HOL/Map: new theory of `maps' a la VDM;
nipkow@3982
  2336
wenzelm@4335
  2337
* HOL/simplifier: simplification procedures nat_cancel_sums for
wenzelm@4335
  2338
cancelling out common nat summands from =, <, <= (in)equalities, or
wenzelm@4335
  2339
differences; simplification procedures nat_cancel_factor for
wenzelm@4335
  2340
cancelling common factor from =, <, <= (in)equalities over natural
wenzelm@4373
  2341
sums; nat_cancel contains both kinds of procedures, it is installed by
wenzelm@4373
  2342
default in Arith.thy -- this COULD MAKE EXISTING PROOFS FAIL;
wenzelm@4335
  2343
nipkow@3580
  2344
* HOL/simplifier: terms of the form
paulson@4325
  2345
  `? x. P1(x) & ... & Pn(x) & x=t & Q1(x) & ... Qn(x)'  (or t=x)
nipkow@3580
  2346
  are rewritten to
nipkow@4035
  2347
  `P1(t) & ... & Pn(t) & Q1(t) & ... Qn(t)',
nipkow@4035
  2348
  and those of the form
paulson@4325
  2349
  `! x. P1(x) & ... & Pn(x) & x=t & Q1(x) & ... Qn(x) --> R(x)'  (or t=x)
nipkow@4035
  2350
  are rewritten to
nipkow@4035
  2351
  `P1(t) & ... & Pn(t) & Q1(t) & ... Qn(t) --> R(t)',
nipkow@4035
  2352
nipkow@4035
  2353
* HOL/datatype
nipkow@4035
  2354
  Each datatype `t' now comes with a theorem `split_t_case' of the form
nipkow@3580
  2355
nipkow@4035
  2356
  P(t_case f1 ... fn x) =
nipkow@4035
  2357
     ( (!y1 ... ym1. x = C1 y1 ... ym1 --> P(f1 y1 ... ym1)) &
nipkow@4035
  2358
        ...
oheimb@4189
  2359
       (!y1 ... ymn. x = Cn y1 ... ymn --> P(f1 y1 ... ymn))
nipkow@4035
  2360
     )
nipkow@4035
  2361
oheimb@4930
  2362
  and a theorem `split_t_case_asm' of the form
oheimb@4189
  2363
oheimb@4189
  2364
  P(t_case f1 ... fn x) =
oheimb@4189
  2365
    ~( (? y1 ... ym1. x = C1 y1 ... ym1 & ~P(f1 y1 ... ym1)) |
oheimb@4189
  2366
        ...
oheimb@4189
  2367
       (? y1 ... ymn. x = Cn y1 ... ymn & ~P(f1 y1 ... ymn))
oheimb@4189
  2368
     )
oheimb@4930
  2369
  which can be added to a simpset via `addsplits'. The existing theorems
oheimb@4930
  2370
  expand_list_case and expand_option_case have been renamed to
oheimb@4930
  2371
  split_list_case and split_option_case.
oheimb@4189
  2372
nipkow@4361
  2373
* HOL/Arithmetic:
nipkow@4361
  2374
  - `pred n' is automatically converted to `n-1'.
nipkow@4361
  2375
    Users are strongly encouraged not to use `pred' any longer,
nipkow@4361
  2376
    because it will disappear altogether at some point.
nipkow@4361
  2377
  - Users are strongly encouraged to write "0 < n" rather than
nipkow@4361
  2378
    "n ~= 0". Theorems and proof tools have been modified towards this
nipkow@4361
  2379
    `standard'.
nipkow@4357
  2380
nipkow@4502
  2381
* HOL/Lists:
nipkow@4502
  2382
  the function "set_of_list" has been renamed "set" (and its theorems too);
nipkow@4502
  2383
  the function "nth" now takes its arguments in the reverse order and
nipkow@4502
  2384
  has acquired the infix notation "!" as in "xs!n".
paulson@3570
  2385
paulson@4154
  2386
* HOL/Set: UNIV is now a constant and is no longer translated to Compl{};
paulson@4154
  2387
paulson@4154
  2388
* HOL/Set: The operator (UN x.B x) now abbreviates (UN x:UNIV. B x) and its
paulson@4154
  2389
  specialist theorems (like UN1_I) are gone.  Similarly for (INT x.B x);
paulson@4154
  2390
wenzelm@4575
  2391
* HOL/record: extensible records with schematic structural subtyping
wenzelm@4575
  2392
(single inheritance); EXPERIMENTAL version demonstrating the encoding,
wenzelm@4575
  2393
still lacks various theorems and concrete record syntax;
wenzelm@4575
  2394
wenzelm@4125
  2395
paulson@3715
  2396
*** HOLCF ***
wenzelm@3535
  2397
wenzelm@4125
  2398
* removed "axioms" and "generated by" sections;
wenzelm@4125
  2399
oheimb@4123
  2400
* replaced "ops" section by extended "consts" section, which is capable of
wenzelm@4125
  2401
  handling the continuous function space "->" directly;
wenzelm@4125
  2402
wenzelm@4125
  2403
* domain package:
wenzelm@4125
  2404
  . proves theorems immediately and stores them in the theory,
wenzelm@4125
  2405
  . creates hierachical name space,
wenzelm@4125
  2406
  . now uses normal mixfix annotations (instead of cinfix...),
wenzelm@4125
  2407
  . minor changes to some names and values (for consistency),
wenzelm@4125
  2408
  . e.g. cases -> casedist, dists_eq -> dist_eqs, [take_lemma] -> take_lemmas,
wenzelm@4125
  2409
  . separator between mutual domain defs: changed "," to "and",
wenzelm@4125
  2410
  . improved handling of sort constraints;  now they have to
wenzelm@4125
  2411
    appear on the left-hand side of the equations only;
oheimb@4123
  2412
oheimb@4123
  2413
* fixed LAM <x,y,zs>.b syntax;
wenzelm@3567
  2414
wenzelm@3744
  2415
* added extended adm_tac to simplifier in HOLCF -- can now discharge
wenzelm@3744
  2416
adm (%x. P (t x)), where P is chainfinite and t continuous;
wenzelm@3579
  2417
wenzelm@3579

paulson@3719
  2419
*** FOL and ZF ***
paulson@3719
  2420
wenzelm@5726
  2421
* FOL: there is a new splitter `split_asm_tac' that can be used e.g.
oheimb@4189
  2422
  with `addloop' of the simplifier to faciliate case splitting in premises.
oheimb@4189
  2423
wenzelm@3744
  2424
* qed_spec_mp, qed_goal_spec_mp, qed_goalw_spec_mp are available, as
wenzelm@3744
  2425
in HOL, they strip ALL and --> from proved theorems;

paulson@3002
  2432
*** General Changes ***
paulson@3002
  2433
paulson@3002
  2434
* new utilities to build / run / maintain Isabelle etc. (in parts
paulson@3002
  2435
still somewhat experimental); old Makefiles etc. still functional;
wenzelm@2971
  2436
wenzelm@3205
  2437
* new 'Isabelle System Manual';
wenzelm@3205
  2438
wenzelm@2825
  2439
* INSTALL text, together with ./configure and ./build scripts;
wenzelm@2773
  2440
wenzelm@3006
  2441
* reimplemented type inference for greater efficiency, better error
wenzelm@3006
  2442
messages and clean internal interface;
paulson@3002
  2443
paulson@3002
  2444
* prlim command for dealing with lots of subgoals (an easier way of
paulson@3002
  2445
setting goals_limit);
paulson@3002
  2446
wenzelm@3006
  2447
wenzelm@3006
  2448
*** Syntax ***
paulson@3002
  2449
wenzelm@3116
  2450
* supports alternative (named) syntax tables (parser and pretty
wenzelm@3116
  2451
printer); internal interface is provided by add_modesyntax(_i);
wenzelm@3116
  2452
paulson@3002
  2453
* Pure, FOL, ZF, HOL, HOLCF now support symbolic input and output; to
paulson@3002
  2454
be used in conjunction with the Isabelle symbol font; uses the
paulson@3002
  2455
"symbols" syntax table;
paulson@3002
  2456
wenzelm@2705
  2457
* added token_translation interface (may translate name tokens in
wenzelm@2756
  2458
arbitrary ways, dependent on their type (free, bound, tfree, ...) and
wenzelm@3116
  2459
the current print_mode); IMPORTANT: user print translation functions
wenzelm@3116
  2460
are responsible for marking newly introduced bounds
wenzelm@3116
  2461
(Syntax.mark_boundT);
wenzelm@2705
  2462
wenzelm@2730
  2463
* token translations for modes "xterm" and "xterm_color" that display
wenzelm@3006
  2464
names in bold, underline etc. or colors (which requires a color
wenzelm@3006
  2465
version of xterm);
wenzelm@2730
  2466
paulson@3002
  2467
* infixes may now be declared with names independent of their syntax;
paulson@3002
  2468
paulson@3002
  2469
* added typed_print_translation (like print_translation, but may
paulson@3002
  2470
access type of constant);

*** Classical Reasoner ***
paulson@3002

paulson@3002
  2475
Blast_tac: a new tactic!  It is often more powerful than fast_tac, but has
paulson@3002
  2476
some limitations.  Blast_tac...
paulson@3002
  2477
  + ignores addss, addbefore, addafter; this restriction is intrinsic
paulson@3002
  2478
  + ignores elimination rules that don't have the correct format
wenzelm@5726
  2479
        (the conclusion MUST be a formula variable)
paulson@3002
  2480
  + ignores types, which can make HOL proofs fail
paulson@3002
  2481
  + rules must not require higher-order unification, e.g. apply_type in ZF
paulson@3002
  2482
    [message "Function Var's argument not a bound variable" relates to this]
paulson@3002
  2483
  + its proof strategy is more general but can actually be slower
paulson@3002
  2484
wenzelm@3107
  2485
* substitution with equality assumptions no longer permutes other
wenzelm@3107
  2486
assumptions;
paulson@3002
  2487
paulson@3002
  2488
* minor changes in semantics of addafter (now called addaltern); renamed
paulson@3002
  2489
setwrapper to setWrapper and compwrapper to compWrapper; added safe wrapper
wenzelm@3107
  2490
(and access functions for it);
paulson@3002
  2491
wenzelm@5726
  2492
* improved combination of classical reasoner and simplifier:
oheimb@3317
  2493
  + functions for handling clasimpsets
oheimb@3317
  2494
  + improvement of addss: now the simplifier is called _after_ the
oheimb@3317
  2495
    safe steps.
oheimb@3317
  2496
  + safe variant of addss called addSss: uses safe simplifications
wenzelm@5726
  2497
    _during_ the safe steps. It is more complete as it allows multiple
oheimb@3317
  2498
    instantiations of unknowns (e.g. with slow_tac).

wenzelm@3006
  2502
* added interface for simplification procedures (functions that
wenzelm@3006
  2503
produce *proven* rewrite rules on the fly, depending on current
