*** General ***
wenzelm@14655

nipkow@15130
     9
* Theory headers: the new header syntax for Isar theories is
nipkow@15130
    10
nipkow@15130
    11
  theory <name>
nipkow@15148
    12
  imports <theory1> ... <theoryn>
nipkow@15130
    13
  begin
nipkow@15130
    14
nipkow@15148
    15
  optionally also with a "files" section. The syntax
nipkow@15130
    16
nipkow@15130
    17
  theory <name> = <theory1> + ... + <theoryn>:
nipkow@15130
    18
nipkow@15130
    19
  will still be supported for some time but will eventually disappear.
nipkow@15130
    20
  The syntax of old-style theories has not changed.
nipkow@15130
    21
berghofe@15475
    22
* Theory loader: parent theories can now also be referred to via
berghofe@15475
    23
  relative and absolute paths.
berghofe@15475
    24
wenzelm@16013
    25
* Provers/quasi.ML: new transitivity reasoners for transitivity only
ballarin@15103
    26
  and quasi orders.
ballarin@15103
    27
wenzelm@16013
    28
* Provers/trancl.ML: new transitivity reasoner for transitive and
ballarin@15076
    29
  reflexive-transitive closure of relations.
ballarin@15076
    30
wenzelm@16013
    31
* Provers/blast.ML: new reference depth_limit to make blast's depth
webertj@15163
    32
  limit (previously hard-coded with a value of 20) user-definable.
webertj@15163
    33
paulson@15481
    34
* Provers: new version of the subst method, for single-step rewriting: it now
paulson@15481
    35
  works in bound variable contexts. New is subst (asm), for rewriting an
paulson@15481
    36
  assumption. Thanks to Lucas Dixon! INCOMPATIBILITY: may rewrite a different
paulson@15481
    37
  subterm than the original subst method, which is still available under the
paulson@15481
    38
  name simplesubst.
paulson@15481
    39
paulson@15454
    40
* Pure: thin_tac now works even if the assumption being deleted contains !! or ==>. 
paulson@15454
    41
  More generally, erule now works even if the major premise of the elimination rule
paulson@15454
    42
  contains !! or ==>.
paulson@15454
    43
wenzelm@14655
    44
* Pure: considerably improved version of 'constdefs' command.  Now
wenzelm@14731
    45
  performs automatic type-inference of declared constants; additional
wenzelm@14731
    46
  support for local structure declarations (cf. locales and HOL
wenzelm@14731
    47
  records), see also isar-ref manual.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY: need
wenzelm@14731
    48
  to observe strictly sequential dependencies of definitions within a
wenzelm@14731
    49
  single 'constdefs' section; moreover, the declared name needs to be
wenzelm@14731
    50
  an identifier.  If all fails, consider to fall back on 'consts' and
wenzelm@14731
    51
  'defs' separately.
wenzelm@14655
    52
wenzelm@14698
    53
* Pure: improved indexed syntax and implicit structures.  First of
wenzelm@14731
    54
  all, indexed syntax provides a notational device for subscripted
wenzelm@14731
    55
  application, using the new syntax \<^bsub>term\<^esub> for arbitrary
wenzelm@14731
    56
  expressions.  Secondly, in a local context with structure
wenzelm@14731
    57
  declarations, number indexes \<^sub>n or the empty index (default
wenzelm@14731
    58
  number 1) refer to a certain fixed variable implicitly; option
wenzelm@14731
    59
  show_structs controls printing of implicit structures.  Typical
wenzelm@14731
    60
  applications of these concepts involve record types and locales.
wenzelm@14731
    61
wenzelm@14795
    62
* Pure: clear separation of logical types and nonterminals, where the
wenzelm@14795
    63
  latter may only occur in 'syntax' specifications or type
wenzelm@14795
    64
  abbreviations.  Before that distinction was only partially
wenzelm@14795
    65
  implemented via type class "logic" vs. "{}".  Potential
wenzelm@14795
    66
  INCOMPATIBILITY in rare cases of improper use of 'types'/'consts'
wenzelm@14795
    67
  instead of 'nonterminals'/'syntax'.  Some very exotic syntax
wenzelm@14816
    68
  specifications may require further adaption (e.g. Cube/Base.thy).
wenzelm@14816
    69
wenzelm@14854
    70
* Pure: removed obsolete type class "logic", use the top sort {}
wenzelm@14854
    71
  instead.  Note that non-logical types should be declared as
wenzelm@14854
    72
  'nonterminals' rather than 'types'.  INCOMPATIBILITY for new
wenzelm@14854
    73
  object-logic specifications.
wenzelm@14854
    74
wenzelm@15744
    75
* Pure: command 'no_syntax' removes grammar declarations (and
wenzelm@15744
    76
  translations) resulting from the given syntax specification, which
wenzelm@15744
    77
  is interpreted in the same manner as for the 'syntax' command.
wenzelm@15744
    78
wenzelm@15022
    79
* Pure: print_tac now outputs the goal through the trace channel.
wenzelm@15022
    80
ballarin@16104
    81
* Pure: reference NameSpace.unique_names included.  If true the
wenzelm@15022
    82
  (shortest) namespace-prefix is printed to disambiguate conflicts (as
wenzelm@15022
    83
  yet). If false the first entry wins (as during parsing). Default
wenzelm@15022
    84
  value is true.
schirmer@15018
    85
wenzelm@15033
    86
* Pure: tuned internal renaming of symbolic identifiers -- attach
wenzelm@15033
    87
  primes instead of base 26 numbers.
wenzelm@15033
    88
wenzelm@15979
    89
* Pure: new flag show_question_marks controls printing of leading
wenzelm@15979
    90
  question marks in schematic variable names.
berghofe@15475
    91
kleing@16000
    92
* Pure: new version of thms_containing that searches for a list of
kleing@16000
    93
  criteria instead of a list of constants. Known criteria are: intro,
kleing@16111
    94
  elim, dest, name:string, simp:term, and any term. Criteria can be 
kleing@16111
    95
  preceded by '-' to select theorems that do not match. Intro, elim, 
kleing@16111
    96
  dest select theorems that match the current goal, name:s selects
kleing@16111
    97
  theorems whose fully qualified name contain s, and simp:term selects
kleing@16111
    98
  all simplification rules whose lhs match term.  Any other term is 
kleing@16112
    99
  interpreted as pattern and selects all theorems matching the
kleing@16111
   100
  pattern. Available in ProofGeneral under 'ProofGeneral -> Find
kleing@16111
   101
  Theorems' or C-c C-f.
kleing@16000
   102
kleing@16000
   103
  Example: C-c C-f (100) "(_::nat) + _ + _" intro -name:"HOL."
kleing@16000
   104
kleing@16000
   105
  prints the last 100 theorems matching the pattern "(_::nat) + _ + _",
kleing@16000
   106
  matching the current goal as introduction rule and not having "HOL." 
kleing@16000
   107
  in their name (i.e. not being defined in theory HOL).
kleing@15883
   108
wenzelm@16051
   109
* Pure/Syntax: In schematic variable names, *any* symbol following
wenzelm@16051
   110
  \<^isub> or \<^isup> is now treated as part of the base name.  For
wenzelm@16051
   111
  example, the following works without printing of ugly ".0" indexes:
wenzelm@16051
   112
wenzelm@16051
   113
    lemma "x\<^isub>1 = x\<^isub>2 ==> x\<^isub>2 = x\<^isub>1"
wenzelm@16051
   114
      by simp
wenzelm@16051
   115
wenzelm@14816
   116
* Pure/Syntax: inner syntax includes (*(*nested*) comments*).
wenzelm@14816
   117
wenzelm@14816
   118
* Pure/Syntax: pretty pinter now supports unbreakable blocks,
wenzelm@14816
   119
  specified in mixfix annotations as "(00...)".
wenzelm@14816
   120
wenzelm@14816
   121
* Pure/Syntax: 'advanced' translation functions (parse_translation
wenzelm@14816
   122
  etc.) may depend on the signature of the theory context being
wenzelm@14816
   123
  presently used for parsing/printing, see also isar-ref manual.
wenzelm@14816
   124
nipkow@16042
   125
* Pure/Simplifier: you can control the depth to which conditional rewriting
nipkow@16042
   126
  is traced via the PG menu Isabelle -> Settings -> Trace Simp Depth Limit.
nipkow@16042
   127
wenzelm@15033
   128
* Pure/Simplifier: simplification procedures may now take the current
wenzelm@15033
   129
  simpset into account (cf. Simplifier.simproc(_i) / mk_simproc
wenzelm@15033
   130
  interface), which is very useful for calling the Simplifier
wenzelm@15033
   131
  recursively.  Minor INCOMPATIBILITY: the 'prems' argument of
wenzelm@15033
   132
  simprocs is gone -- use prems_of_ss on the simpset instead.
wenzelm@15033
   133
  Moreover, the low-level mk_simproc no longer applies Logic.varify
wenzelm@15033
   134
  internally, to allow for use in a context of fixed variables.
wenzelm@15033
   135
wenzelm@16013
   136
* Isar debugging: new reference Toplevel.debug; default false.  Set to
wenzelm@16013
   137
  make printing of exceptions THM, TERM, TYPE and THEORY more verbose.
ballarin@15528
   138
  
ballarin@16102
   139
* Locales: modifications regarding "includes"
ballarin@15127
   140
  - "includes" disallowed in declaration of named locales (command "locale").
ballarin@15206
   141
  - Fixed parameter management in theorem generation for goals with "includes".
ballarin@15206
   142
    INCOMPATIBILITY: rarely, the generated theorem statement is different.
berghofe@15475
   143
ballarin@16102
   144
* Locales: locale expressions permit optional mixfix redeclaration for
ballarin@16102
   145
  renamed parameters.
ballarin@16102
   146
ballarin@16102
   147
* Locales: new commands for the interpretation of locale expressions
ballarin@15696
   148
  in theories (interpretation) and proof contexts (interpret).  These take an
ballarin@15696
   149
  instantiation of the locale parameters and compute proof obligations from
ballarin@15696
   150
  the instantiated specification.  After the obligations have been discharged,
ballarin@15696
   151
  the instantiated theorems of the locale are added to the theory or proof
ballarin@15696
   152
  context.  Interpretation is smart in that already active interpretations
ballarin@15696
   153
  do not occur in proof obligations, neither are instantiated theorems stored
ballarin@15696
   154
  in duplicate.
ballarin@15696
   155
  Use print_interps to inspect active interpretations of a particular locale.
ballarin@15763
   156
  For details, see the Isar Reference manual.
ballarin@15696
   157
wenzelm@15727
   158
* Locales: proper static binding of attribute syntax -- i.e. types /
wenzelm@15727
   159
  terms / facts mentioned as arguments are always those of the locale
wenzelm@15727
   160
  definition context, independently of the context of later
wenzelm@15727
   161
  invocations.  Moreover, locale operations (renaming and type / term
wenzelm@15727
   162
  instantiation) are applied to attribute arguments as expected.
wenzelm@15727
   163
wenzelm@15727
   164
  INCOMPATIBILITY of the ML interface: always pass Attrib.src instead
wenzelm@15727
   165
  of actual attributes; rare situations may require Attrib.attribute
wenzelm@15727
   166
  to embed those attributes into Attrib.src that lack concrete syntax.
wenzelm@15727
   167
wenzelm@15727
   168
  Attribute implementations need to cooperate properly with the static
wenzelm@15727
   169
  binding mechanism.  Basic parsers Args.XXX_typ/term/prop and
wenzelm@15727
   170
  Attrib.XXX_thm etc. already do the right thing without further
wenzelm@15727
   171
  intervention.  Only unusual applications -- such as "where" or "of"
wenzelm@15727
   172
  (cf. src/Pure/Isar/attrib.ML), which process arguments depending
wenzelm@15727
   173
  both on the context and the facts involved -- may have to assign
wenzelm@15727
   174
  parsed values to argument tokens explicitly.
wenzelm@15727
   175
wenzelm@15727
   176
* Attributes 'induct' and 'cases': type or set names may now be
wenzelm@15727
   177
  locally fixed variables as well.
wenzelm@15727
   178
wenzelm@15703
   179
* Isar: new syntax 'name(i-j, i-, i, ...)' for referring to specific
wenzelm@15703
   180
  selections of theorems in named facts via indices.
wenzelm@15703
   181
wenzelm@15801
   182
* Pure: reorganized bootstrapping of the Pure theories; CPure is now
wenzelm@15801
   183
  derived from Pure, which contains all common declarations already.
wenzelm@15801
   184
  Both theories are defined via plain Isabelle/Isar .thy files.
wenzelm@15801
   185
  INCOMPATIBILITY: elements of CPure (such as the CPure.intro /
wenzelm@15801
   186
  CPure.elim / CPure.dest attributes) now appear in the Pure name
wenzelm@15801
   187
  space; use isatool fixcpure to adapt your theory and ML sources.
wenzelm@15801
   188
wenzelm@16013
   189
* Provers/simplifier.ML has been moved to Pure, where Simplifier.setup
wenzelm@16013
   190
  is peformed already.  Object-logics merely need to finish their
wenzelm@16013
   191
  initial simpset configuration as before.
wenzelm@16013
   192
wenzelm@15703
   193
wenzelm@15703
   194
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@15703
   195
wenzelm@15979
   196
* Several new antiquotation:
wenzelm@15979
   197
wenzelm@15979
   198
  @{term_type term} prints a term with its type annotated;
wenzelm@15979
   199
wenzelm@15979
   200
  @{typeof term} prints the type of a term;
wenzelm@15979
   201
wenzelm@15979
   202
  @{const const} is the same as @{term const}, but checks
wenzelm@15979
   203
    that the argument is a known logical constant;
wenzelm@15979
   204
wenzelm@15979
   205
  @{term_style style term} and @{thm_style style thm} print a term or
wenzelm@15979
   206
    theorem applying a "style" to it
wenzelm@15979
   207
wenzelm@15979
   208
  Predefined styles are "lhs" and "rhs" printing the lhs/rhs of
wenzelm@15979
   209
  definitions, equations, inequations etc. and "conclusion" printing
wenzelm@15979
   210
  only the conclusion of a meta-logical statement theorem.  Styles may
wenzelm@15979
   211
  be defined via TermStyle.add_style in ML.  See the "LaTeX Sugar"
wenzelm@15979
   212
  document for more information.
wenzelm@15703
   213
wenzelm@15703
   214
* Antiquotations now provide the option 'locale=NAME' to specify an
wenzelm@15703
   215
  alternative context used for evaluating and printing the subsequent
wenzelm@15703
   216
  argument, as in @{thm [locale=LC] fold_commute}, for example.
wenzelm@15703
   217
wenzelm@15703
   218
* Commands 'display_drafts' and 'print_drafts' perform simple output
wenzelm@15703
   219
  of raw sources.  Only those symbols that do not require additional
wenzelm@15703
   220
  LaTeX packages (depending on comments in isabellesym.sty) are
wenzelm@15703
   221
  displayed properly, everything else is left verbatim.  We use
wenzelm@15703
   222
  isatool display and isatool print as front ends; these are subject
wenzelm@15703
   223
  to the DVI/PDF_VIEWER and PRINT_COMMAND settings, respectively.
wenzelm@15703
   224
wenzelm@15703
   225
* Proof scripts as well as some other commands such as ML or
wenzelm@15703
   226
  parse/print_translation can now be hidden in the document.  Hiding
wenzelm@15703
   227
  is enabled by default, and can be disabled either via the option '-H
wenzelm@15703
   228
  false' of isatool usedir or by resetting the reference variable
wenzelm@15703
   229
  IsarOutput.hide_commands. Additional commands to be hidden may be
wenzelm@15703
   230
  declared using IsarOutput.add_hidden_commands.

schirmer@14700
   233
*** HOL ***
schirmer@14700
   234
nipkow@15242
   235
* Datatype induction via method `induct' now preserves the name of the
nipkow@15242
   236
  induction variable. For example, when proving P(xs::'a list) by induction
nipkow@15242
   237
  on xs, the induction step is now P(xs) ==> P(a#xs) rather than
nipkow@15242
   238
  P(list) ==> P(a#list) as previously.
nipkow@15242
   239
wenzelm@14731
   240
* HOL/record: reimplementation of records. Improved scalability for
wenzelm@14731
   241
  records with many fields, avoiding performance problems for type
wenzelm@14731
   242
  inference. Records are no longer composed of nested field types, but
wenzelm@14731
   243
  of nested extension types. Therefore the record type only grows
wenzelm@14731
   244
  linear in the number of extensions and not in the number of fields.
wenzelm@14731
   245
  The top-level (users) view on records is preserved.  Potential
wenzelm@14731
   246
  INCOMPATIBILITY only in strange cases, where the theory depends on
wenzelm@14731
   247
  the old record representation. The type generated for a record is
wenzelm@14731
   248
  called <record_name>_ext_type.
wenzelm@14731
   249
wenzelm@15022
   250
* HOL/record: Reference record_quick_and_dirty_sensitive can be
wenzelm@15022
   251
  enabled to skip the proofs triggered by a record definition or a
wenzelm@15022
   252
  simproc (if quick_and_dirty is enabled). Definitions of large
wenzelm@15022
   253
  records can take quite long.
wenzelm@15022
   254
wenzelm@15022
   255
* HOL/record: "record_upd_simproc" for simplification of multiple
wenzelm@15022
   256
  record updates enabled by default.  Moreover, trivial updates are
wenzelm@15022
   257
  also removed: r(|x := x r|) = r.  INCOMPATIBILITY: old proofs break
wenzelm@15022
   258
  occasionally, since simplification is more powerful by default.
schirmer@15012
   259
wenzelm@14878
   260
* HOL: symbolic syntax of Hilbert Choice Operator is now as follows:

  The symbol \<some> is displayed as the alternative epsilon of LaTeX

  and x-symbol; use option '-m epsilon' to get it actually printed.
wenzelm@14878

* HOL: "x > y" abbreviates "y < x" and "x >= y" abbreviates "y <= x".
wenzelm@15979
   271
  Similarly for all quantifiers: "ALL x > y" etc.  The x-symbol for >=
wenzelm@15979
   272
  is \<ge>.
wenzelm@15979
   273
wenzelm@15979
   274
* HOL/Set: "{x:A. P}" abbreviates "{x. x:A & P}" (and similarly for

   275
  "\<in>" instead of ":").
nipkow@15534
   276
nipkow@15046
   277
* HOL/SetInterval: The syntax for open intervals has changed:
nipkow@15046
   278
nipkow@15046
   279
  Old         New
nipkow@15046
   280
  {..n(}   -> {..<n}
nipkow@15046
   281
  {)n..}   -> {n<..}
nipkow@15046
   282
  {m..n(}  -> {m..<n}
nipkow@15046
   283
  {)m..n}  -> {m<..n}
nipkow@15046
   284
  {)m..n(} -> {m<..<n}
nipkow@15046
   285
nipkow@15046
   286
  The old syntax is still supported but will disappear in the future.
nipkow@15046
   287
  For conversion use the following emacs search and replace patterns:
nipkow@15046
   288
nipkow@15046
   289
  {)\([^\.]*\)\.\.  ->  {\1<\.\.}
nipkow@15046
   290
  \.\.\([^(}]*\)(}  ->  \.\.<\1}
nipkow@15046
   291
nipkow@15046
   292
  They are not perfect but work quite well.
nipkow@15046
   293
nipkow@15073
   294
* HOL: The syntax for 'setsum', summation over finite sets, has changed:
nipkow@15073
   295
nipkow@15073
   296
  The syntax for 'setsum (%x. e) A' used to be '\<Sum>x:A. e'
nipkow@15073
   297
  and is now either 'SUM x:A. e' or '\<Sum>x\<in>A. e'.
nipkow@15073
   298
nipkow@15073
   299
  There is new syntax for summation over finite sets:
nipkow@15046
   300
nipkow@15050
   301
  '\<Sum>x | P. e'    is the same as  'setsum (%x. e) {x. P}'
nipkow@15050
   302
  '\<Sum>x=a..b. e'   is the same as  'setsum (%x. e) {a..b}'
nipkow@15050
   303
  '\<Sum>x=a..<b. e'  is the same as  'setsum (%x. e) {a..<b}'
nipkow@15050
   304
  '\<Sum>x<k. e'      is the same as  'setsum (%x. e) {..<k}'
nipkow@15046
   305
nipkow@15046
   306
  Function 'Summation' over nat is gone, its syntax '\<Sum>i<k. e'
nipkow@15046
   307
  now translates into 'setsum' as above.
nipkow@15046

* HOL: Finite set induction: In Isar proofs, the insert case is now
nipkow@15319
   310
  "case (insert x F)" instead of the old counterintuitive "case (insert F x)".
nipkow@15319
   311

* HOL/Simplifier:
nipkow@15200

nipkow@15200
   314
  - Is now set up to reason about transitivity chains involving "trancl"
nipkow@15200
   315
  (r^+) and "rtrancl" (r^*) by setting up tactics provided by
nipkow@15200
   316
  Provers/trancl.ML as additional solvers.  INCOMPATIBILITY: old proofs break
nipkow@15200
   317
  occasionally as simplification may now solve more goals than previously.
nipkow@15200
   318
nipkow@15200
   319
  - Converts x <= y into x = y if assumption y <= x is present.  Works for
nipkow@15200
   320
  all partial orders (class "order"), in particular numbers and sets. For
nipkow@15200
   321
  linear orders (e.g. numbers) it treats ~ x < y just like y <= x.
wenzelm@15089

schirmer@15423
   323
  - Simproc for "let x = a in f x"
schirmer@15423
   324
  If a is a free or bound variable or a constant then the let is unfolded.
schirmer@15423
   325
  Otherwise first a is simplified to a', and then f a' is simplified to
schirmer@15423
   326
  g. If possible we abstract a' from g arriving at "let x = a' in g' x",
schirmer@15423
   327
  otherwise we unfold the let and arrive at g. The simproc can be 
schirmer@15423
   328
  enabled/disabled by the reference use_let_simproc. Potential
schirmer@15423
   329
  INCOMPATIBILITY since simplification is more powerful by default.

  isabelle, isatool etc.).
wenzelm@15852

wenzelm@15852
   362

*** ML ***
wenzelm@15703
   374
wenzelm@15973
   375
* Pure/library.ML no longer defines its own option datatype, but uses
wenzelm@15973
   376
  that of the SML basis, which has constructors NONE and SOME instead
wenzelm@15973
   377
  of None and Some, as well as exception Option.Option instead of
wenzelm@15973
   378
  OPTION.  The functions the, if_none, is_some, is_none have been
wenzelm@15973
   379
  adapted accordingly, while Option.map replaces apsome.
wenzelm@15973
   380
wenzelm@16151
   381
* The exception LIST has been given up in favour of the standard
wenzelm@16151
   382
  exceptions Empty and Subscript, as well as Library.UnequalLengths.
wenzelm@16151
   383
  Function like Library.hd and Library.tl are superceded by the
wenzelm@16151
   384
  standard hd and tl functions etc.
wenzelm@15973
   385
wenzelm@15973
   386
  A number of basic functions are now no longer exported to the ML
wenzelm@15973
   387
  toplevel, as they are variants of standard functions.  The following
wenzelm@15973
   388
  suggests how one can translate existing code:
wenzelm@15973
   389
wenzelm@15973
   390
    rev_append xs ys = List.revAppend (xs, ys)
wenzelm@15973
   391
    nth_elem (i, xs) = List.nth (xs, i)
wenzelm@15973
   392
    last_elem xs = List.last xs
wenzelm@15973
   393
    flat xss = List.concat xss
wenzelm@15973
   394
    seq fs = app fs
wenzelm@15973
   395
    partition P xs = List.partition P xs
wenzelm@15973
   396
    filter P xs = List.filter P xs
wenzelm@15973
   397
    mapfilter f xs = List.mapPartial f xs
wenzelm@15973
   398
wenzelm@15703
   399
* Pure: output via the Isabelle channels of writeln/warning/error
wenzelm@15703
   400
  etc. is now passed through Output.output, with a hook for arbitrary
wenzelm@15703
   401
  transformations depending on the print_mode (cf. Output.add_mode --
wenzelm@15703
   402
  the first active mode that provides a output function wins).
wenzelm@15703
   403
  Already formatted output may be embedded into further text via
wenzelm@15703
   404
  Output.raw; the result of Pretty.string_of/str_of and derived
wenzelm@15703
   405
  functions (string_of_term/cterm/thm etc.) is already marked raw to
wenzelm@15703
   406
  accommodate easy composition of diagnostic messages etc.
wenzelm@15703
   407
  Programmers rarely need to care about Output.output or Output.raw at
wenzelm@15703
   408
  all, with some notable exceptions: Output.output is required when
wenzelm@15703
   409
  bypassing the standard channels (writeln etc.), or in token
wenzelm@15703
   410
  translations to produce properly formatted results; Output.raw is
wenzelm@15703
   411
  required when capturing already output material that will eventually
wenzelm@15703
   412
  be presented to the user a second time.  For the default print mode,
wenzelm@15703
   413
  both Output.output and Output.raw have no effect.
wenzelm@15703
   414
wenzelm@16151
   415
* Pure: name spaces have been refined, with significant changes of the
wenzelm@16151
   416
  internal interfaces -- INCOMPATIBILITY.  Renamed cond_extern(_table)
wenzelm@16151
   417
  to extern(_table).  The plain name entry path is superceded by a
wenzelm@16151
   418
  general 'naming' context, which also includes the 'policy' to
wenzelm@16151
   419
  produce a fully qualified name and external accesses of a fully
wenzelm@16151
   420
  qualified name; NameSpace.extend is superceded by context dependent
wenzelm@16151
   421
  Sign.declare_name.  Several theory and proof context operations
wenzelm@16151
   422
  modify the naming context; especially note Theory.restore_naming and
wenzelm@16151
   423
  ProofContext.restore_naming.
wenzelm@16151
   424
wenzelm@16151
   425
* Pure: cases produced by proof methods specify options, where NONE
wenzelm@16151

  means to remove case bindings -- INCOMPATIBILITY in

* Provers: Simplifier and Classical Reasoner now support proof context
wenzelm@15703
   430
  dependent plug-ins (simprocs, solvers, wrappers etc.).  These extra
wenzelm@15703
   431
  components are stored in the theory and patched into the
wenzelm@15703
   432
  simpset/claset when used in an Isar proof context.  Context

wenzelm@14606
   465
* Pure: Greek letters (except small lambda, \<lambda>), as well as Gothic
wenzelm@14606
   466
  (\<aa>...\<zz>\<AA>...\<ZZ>), calligraphic (\<A>...\<Z>), and Euler
skalberg@14173
   467
  (\<a>...\<z>), are now considered normal letters, and can therefore
skalberg@14173
   468
  be used anywhere where an ASCII letter (a...zA...Z) has until
skalberg@14173
   469
  now. COMPATIBILITY: This obviously changes the parsing of some
skalberg@14173
   470
  terms, especially where a symbol has been used as a binder, say
skalberg@14173
   471
  '\<Pi>x. ...', which is now a type error since \<Pi>x will be parsed
skalberg@14173
   472
  as an identifier.  Fix it by inserting a space around former
skalberg@14173
   473
  symbols.  Call 'isatool fixgreek' to try to fix parsing errors in
skalberg@14173
   474
  existing theory and ML files.

paulson@14237
   477
wenzelm@14731
   478
* Pure: single letter sub/superscripts (\<^isub> and \<^isup>) are now
wenzelm@14731
   479
  allowed in identifiers. Similar to Greek letters \<^isub> is now considered
wenzelm@14731
   480
  a normal (but invisible) letter. For multiple letter subscripts repeat
wenzelm@14731
   481
  \<^isub> like this: x\<^isub>1\<^isub>2.
kleing@14233
   482
kleing@14333
   483
* Pure: There are now sub-/superscripts that can span more than one
kleing@14333
   484
  character. Text between \<^bsub> and \<^esub> is set in subscript in
wenzelm@14606
   485
  ProofGeneral and LaTeX, text between \<^bsup> and \<^esup> in
wenzelm@14606
   486
  superscript. The new control characters are not identifier parts.
kleing@14333
   487
schirmer@14561
   488
* Pure: Control-symbols of the form \<^raw:...> will literally print the
wenzelm@14606
   489
  content of "..." to the latex file instead of \isacntrl... . The "..."
wenzelm@14606
   490
  may consist of any printable characters excluding the end bracket >.
schirmer@14361
   491
paulson@14237
   492
* Pure: Using new Isar command "finalconsts" (or the ML functions
paulson@14237
   493
  Theory.add_finals or Theory.add_finals_i) it is now possible to
paulson@14237
   494
  declare constants "final", which prevents their being given a definition
paulson@14237
   495
  later.  It is useful for constants whose behaviour is fixed axiomatically
skalberg@14224
   496
  rather than definitionally, such as the meta-logic connectives.
skalberg@14224
   497
wenzelm@14606
   498

  (i.e. intersections of classes),
skalberg@14503

kleing@14547

wenzelm@14731
   502
  (somewhat) independent of content. It is copied from lib/html/isabelle.css.

  cut_tac, subgoal_tac and thin_tac:
ballarin@14175

  - INCOMPATIBILITY: names of variables to be instantiated may no
ballarin@14211

ballarin@14285
   519
  - Now take type variables of instantiated theorem into account when reading
ballarin@14285
   520
    the instantiation string.  This fixes a bug that caused instantiated
ballarin@14285
   521
    theorems to have too special types in some circumstances.
ballarin@14285

  - "where" permits explicit instantiations of type variables.
ballarin@14257

wenzelm@14556

* Calculation commands "moreover" and "also" no longer interfere with
wenzelm@14556
   525
  current facts ("this"), admitting arbitrary combinations with "then"
wenzelm@14556
   526
  and derived forms.
kleing@14283

ballarin@14211
   528
* Locales:
ballarin@14211
   529
  - Goal statements involving the context element "includes" no longer
ballarin@14211
   530
    generate theorems with internal delta predicates (those ending on
ballarin@14211
   531
    "_axioms") in the premise.
ballarin@14211
   532
    Resolve particular premise with <locale>.intro to obtain old form.
ballarin@14211
   533
  - Fixed bug in type inference ("unify_frozen") that prevented mix of target
ballarin@14211
   534
    specification and "includes" elements in goal statement.
ballarin@14254
   535
  - Rule sets <locale>.intro and <locale>.axioms no longer declared as
ballarin@14254
   536
    [intro?] and [elim?] (respectively) by default.
ballarin@14508
   537
  - Experimental command for instantiation of locales in proof contexts:
ballarin@14551
   538
        instantiate <label>[<attrs>]: <loc>
ballarin@14508
   539
    Instantiates locale <loc> and adds all its theorems to the current context
ballarin@14551
   540
    taking into account their attributes.  Label and attrs are optional
ballarin@14551
   541
    modifiers, like in theorem declarations.  If present, names of
ballarin@14551
   542
    instantiated theorems are qualified with <label>, and the attributes
ballarin@14551
   543
    <attrs> are applied after any attributes these theorems might have already.
ballarin@14551
   544
      If the locale has assumptions, a chained fact of the form
ballarin@14508
   545
    "<loc> t1 ... tn" is expected from which instantiations of the parameters
ballarin@14551
   546
    are derived.  The command does not support old-style locales declared
ballarin@14551
   547
    with "locale (open)".
ballarin@14551
   548
      A few (very simple) examples can be found in FOL/ex/LocaleInst.thy.

kleing@14624
   557
  the HOL4 system with about 2500 theorems. It is imported by
kleing@14624
   558
  replaying proof terms produced by HOL4 in Isabelle. The HOL4 image
kleing@14624

* Simplifier:
ballarin@14398
   563
  - Much improved handling of linear and partial orders.
ballarin@14398
   564
    Reasoners for linear and partial orders are set up for type classes
ballarin@14398
   565
    "linorder" and "order" respectively, and are added to the default simpset
ballarin@14398
   566
    as solvers.  This means that the simplifier can build transitivity chains
ballarin@14398
   567
    to solve goals from the assumptions.
ballarin@14398
   568
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: old proofs break occasionally.  Typically, applications
ballarin@14398
   569
    of blast or auto after simplification become unnecessary because the goal
ballarin@14398
   570
    is solved by simplification already.

  - Numeric types (nat, int, and in HOL-Complex rat, real, complex, etc.) are
wenzelm@14731
   577
    now formalized using the Ring_and_Field theory mentioned above.
paulson@14389
   578
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: simplification and arithmetic behaves somewhat differently
paulson@14389
   579
    than before, because now they are set up once in a generic manner.
wenzelm@14731
   580
  - INCOMPATIBILITY: many type-specific arithmetic laws have gone.
paulson@14480
   581
    Look for the general versions in Ring_and_Field (and Power if they concern
paulson@14480
   582
    exponentiation).

schirmer@14255
   586
* Records:
schirmer@14255
   587
  - Record types are now by default printed with their type abbreviation
schirmer@14255
   588
    instead of the list of all field types. This can be configured via
schirmer@14255
   589
    the reference "print_record_type_abbr".
wenzelm@14731
   590
  - Simproc "record_upd_simproc" for simplification of multiple updates added
schirmer@14255
   591
    (not enabled by default).
schirmer@14427
   592
  - Simproc "record_ex_sel_eq_simproc" to simplify EX x. sel r = x resp.
schirmer@14427
   593
    EX x. x = sel r to True (not enabled by default).
schirmer@14255
   594
  - Tactic "record_split_simp_tac" to split and simplify records added.
wenzelm@14731
   595
kleing@14136
   596
* 'specification' command added, allowing for definition by

* Unions and Intersections:
nipkow@15119
   611
  The latex output syntax of UN and INT has been changed
nipkow@15119
   612
  from "\Union x \in A. B" to "\Union_{x \in A} B"
nipkow@15119
   613
  i.e. the index formulae has become a subscript.
nipkow@15119
   614
  Similarly for "\Union x. B", and for \Inter instead of \Union.
nipkow@14380
   615
kleing@14418
   616
* Unions and Intersections over Intervals:
wenzelm@14731
   617
  There is new short syntax "UN i<=n. A" for "UN i:{0..n}. A". There is
wenzelm@14731
   618
  also an x-symbol version with subscripts "\<Union>\<^bsub>i <= n\<^esub>. A"
kleing@14418
   619
  like in normal math, and corresponding versions for < and for intersection.
kleing@14418
   620
nipkow@15677
   621
* HOL/List: Ordering "lexico" is renamed "lenlex" and the standard
nipkow@15677
   622
  lexicographic dictonary ordering has been added as "lexord".
nipkow@15677
   623
paulson@14401
   624
* ML: the legacy theory structures Int and List have been removed. They had
paulson@14401
   625
  conflicted with ML Basis Library structures having the same names.
nipkow@14380
   626
webertj@14464
   627
* 'refute' command added to search for (finite) countermodels.  Only works
webertj@14464
   628
  for a fragment of HOL.  The installation of an external SAT solver is
webertj@14464
   629
  highly recommended.  See "HOL/Refute.thy" for details.
webertj@14464
   630
berghofe@14602
   631
* 'quickcheck' command: Allows to find counterexamples by evaluating
berghofe@14602
   632
  formulae under an assignment of free variables to random values.
berghofe@14602
   633
  In contrast to 'refute', it can deal with inductive datatypes,
berghofe@14602
   634
  but cannot handle quantifiers. See "HOL/ex/Quickcheck_Examples.thy"
berghofe@14602

* Provers/simplifier:
berghofe@13618
   650
nipkow@13781
   651
  - Completely reimplemented method simp (ML: Asm_full_simp_tac):
berghofe@13618
   652
    Assumptions are now subject to complete mutual simplification,
berghofe@13618
   653
    not just from left to right. The simplifier now preserves
berghofe@13618
   654
    the order of assumptions.
berghofe@13618
   655
berghofe@13618
   656
    Potential INCOMPATIBILITY:
berghofe@13618
   657
nipkow@13781
   658
    -- simp sometimes diverges where the old version did
nipkow@13781
   659
       not, e.g. invoking simp on the goal
berghofe@13618
   660
berghofe@13618
   661
        [| P (f x); y = x; f x = f y |] ==> Q
berghofe@13618
   662
nipkow@13781
   663
       now gives rise to the infinite reduction sequence
nipkow@13781
   664
nipkow@13781
   665
        P(f x) --(f x = f y)--> P(f y) --(y = x)--> P(f x) --(f x = f y)--> ...
nipkow@13781
   666
nipkow@13781
   667
       Using "simp (asm_lr)" (ML: Asm_lr_simp_tac) instead often solves this
nipkow@13781
   668
       kind of problem.
nipkow@13781
   669
nipkow@13781
   670
    -- Tactics combining classical reasoner and simplification (such as auto)
nipkow@13781
   671
       are also affected by this change, because many of them rely on
nipkow@13781
   672
       simp. They may sometimes diverge as well or yield a different numbers
nipkow@13781
   673
       of subgoals. Try to use e.g. force, fastsimp, or safe instead of auto
nipkow@13781
   674
       in case of problems. Sometimes subsequent calls to the classical
nipkow@13781
   675
       reasoner will fail because a preceeding call to the simplifier too
nipkow@13781
   676
       eagerly simplified the goal, e.g. deleted redundant premises.
berghofe@13618
   677
berghofe@13618
   678
  - The simplifier trace now shows the names of the applied rewrite rules
berghofe@13618
   679
nipkow@13829
   680
  - You can limit the number of recursive invocations of the simplifier
nipkow@13829
   681
    during conditional rewriting (where the simplifie tries to solve the
nipkow@13829
   682
    conditions before applying the rewrite rule):
nipkow@13829
   683
    ML "simp_depth_limit := n"
nipkow@13829
   684
    where n is an integer. Thus you can force termination where previously
nipkow@13829
   685
    the simplifier would diverge.
nipkow@13829
   686
ballarin@13835
   687
  - Accepts free variables as head terms in congruence rules.  Useful in Isar.
nipkow@13829
   688
ballarin@13938
   689
  - No longer aborts on failed congruence proof.  Instead, the
ballarin@13938
   690
    congruence is ignored.

* Pure: New generic framework for extracting programs from constructive

  as HOL/Extraction for some case studies.
berghofe@14008
   695
nipkow@13868
   696
* Pure: The main goal of the proof state is no longer shown by default, only
nipkow@13868
   697
the subgoals. This behaviour is controlled by a new flag.
ballarin@13835
   698
   PG menu: Isabelle/Isar -> Settings -> Show Main Goal

   699
(ML: Proof.show_main_goal).
nipkow@13815

nipkow@13815
   701
* Pure: You can find all matching introduction rules for subgoal 1, i.e. all
nipkow@13815
   702
rules whose conclusion matches subgoal 1:
nipkow@13815
   703
      PG menu: Isabelle/Isar -> Show me -> matching rules
nipkow@13815
   704
The rules are ordered by how closely they match the subgoal.
nipkow@13815
   705
In particular, rules that solve a subgoal outright are displayed first
nipkow@13815
   706
(or rather last, the way they are printed).
nipkow@13815
   707
(ML: ProofGeneral.print_intros())
nipkow@13815
   708
nipkow@13815
   709
* Pure: New flag trace_unify_fail causes unification to print
nipkow@13781
   710
diagnostic information (PG: in trace buffer) when it fails. This is
nipkow@13781
   711
useful for figuring out why single step proofs like rule, erule or
nipkow@13781
   712
assumption failed.
nipkow@13781
   713
nipkow@13815
   714
* Pure: Locale specifications now produce predicate definitions
wenzelm@13410
   715
according to the body of text (covering assumptions modulo local
wenzelm@13410
   716
definitions); predicate "loc_axioms" covers newly introduced text,
wenzelm@13410
   717
while "loc" is cumulative wrt. all included locale expressions; the
wenzelm@13410
   718
latter view is presented only on export into the global theory
wenzelm@13410
   719
context; potential INCOMPATIBILITY, use "(open)" option to fall back
wenzelm@13410
   720
on the old view without predicates;
wenzelm@13410
   721
wenzelm@13459
   722
* Pure: predefined locales "var" and "struct" are useful for sharing
wenzelm@13459
   723
parameters (as in CASL, for example); just specify something like
wenzelm@13459
   724
``var x + var y + struct M'' as import;
wenzelm@13459
   725
wenzelm@13463
   726
* Pure: improved thms_containing: proper indexing of facts instead of
wenzelm@13463
   727
raw theorems; check validity of results wrt. current name space;
wenzelm@13463
   728
include local facts of proof configuration (also covers active
wenzelm@13541
   729
locales), cover fixed variables in index; may use "_" in term
wenzelm@13541
   730
specification; an optional limit for the number of printed facts may
wenzelm@13541
   731
be given (the default is 40);
wenzelm@13541
   732
wenzelm@13541
   733
* Pure: disallow duplicate fact bindings within new-style theory files
wenzelm@13541
   734
(batch-mode only);
wenzelm@13540
   735
wenzelm@13463
   736
* Provers: improved induct method: assumptions introduced by case
wenzelm@13463
   737
"foo" are split into "foo.hyps" (from the rule) and "foo.prems" (from
wenzelm@13463
   738
the goal statement); "foo" still refers to all facts collectively;
wenzelm@13463
   739
paulson@13550
   740
* Provers: the function blast.overloaded has been removed: all constants
paulson@13550
   741
are regarded as potentially overloaded, which improves robustness in exchange
paulson@13550
   742
for slight decrease in efficiency;
paulson@13550
   743
nipkow@13781
   744
* Provers/linorder: New generic prover for transitivity reasoning over
nipkow@13781
   745
linear orders.  Note: this prover is not efficient!
nipkow@13781
   746
wenzelm@13522

* Isar: preview of problems to finish 'show' now produce an error

nipkow@13899

*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@11572
   869
wenzelm@11842
   870
* greatly simplified document preparation setup, including more
wenzelm@11842
   871
graceful interpretation of isatool usedir -i/-d/-D options, and more
wenzelm@11842
   872
instructive isatool mkdir; users should basically be able to get
wenzelm@12899
   873
started with "isatool mkdir HOL Test && isatool make"; alternatively,
wenzelm@12899
   874
users may run a separate document processing stage manually like this:
wenzelm@12899
   875
"isatool usedir -D output HOL Test && isatool document Test/output";
wenzelm@11842
   876
wenzelm@11842
   877
* theory dependency graph may now be incorporated into documents;
wenzelm@11842
   878
isatool usedir -g true will produce session_graph.eps/.pdf for use
wenzelm@11842
   879
with \includegraphics of LaTeX;
wenzelm@11842
   880
wenzelm@11864
   881
* proper spacing of consecutive markup elements, especially text
wenzelm@11864
   882
blocks after section headings;
wenzelm@11864
   883
wenzelm@11572
   884
* support bold style (for single symbols only), input syntax is like
wenzelm@11572

this: "\<^bold>\<alpha>" or "\<^bold>A";
wenzelm@11572
   886
wenzelm@11814
   887
* \<bullet> is now output as bold \cdot by default, which looks much
wenzelm@11572
   888
better in printed text;
wenzelm@11572
   889
wenzelm@11712
   890
* added default LaTeX bindings for \<tturnstile> and \<TTurnstile>;
wenzelm@11712
   891
note that these symbols are currently unavailable in Proof General /
wenzelm@12769
   892

wenzelm@12690

wenzelm@12312
   901
* Pure/Provers: improved proof by cases and induction;
wenzelm@12280
   902
  - 'case' command admits impromptu naming of parameters (such as
wenzelm@12280
   903
    "case (Suc n)");
wenzelm@12280
   904
  - 'induct' method divinates rule instantiation from the inductive
wenzelm@12280
   905
    claim; no longer requires excessive ?P bindings for proper
wenzelm@12280
   906
    instantiation of cases;
wenzelm@12280
   907
  - 'induct' method properly enumerates all possibilities of set/type
wenzelm@12280
   908
    rules; as a consequence facts may be also passed through *type*
wenzelm@12280
   909
    rules without further ado;
wenzelm@12280
   910
  - 'induct' method now derives symbolic cases from the *rulified*
wenzelm@12280
   911
    rule (before it used to rulify cases stemming from the internal
wenzelm@12280
   912
    atomized version); this means that the context of a non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
   913
    statement becomes is included in the hypothesis, avoiding the
wenzelm@12280
   914
    slightly cumbersome show "PROP ?case" form;
wenzelm@12280
   915
  - 'induct' may now use elim-style induction rules without chaining
wenzelm@12280
   916
    facts, using ``missing'' premises from the goal state; this allows
wenzelm@12280
   917
    rules stemming from inductive sets to be applied in unstructured
wenzelm@12280
   918
    scripts, while still benefitting from proper handling of non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
   919
    statements; NB: major inductive premises need to be put first, all
wenzelm@12280
   920
    the rest of the goal is passed through the induction;
wenzelm@12280
   921
  - 'induct' proper support for mutual induction involving non-atomic
wenzelm@12280
   922
    rule statements (uses the new concept of simultaneous goals, see
wenzelm@12280
   923
    below);
wenzelm@12853
   924
  - append all possible rule selections, but only use the first
wenzelm@12853
   925
    success (no backtracking);
wenzelm@11995
   926
  - removed obsolete "(simplified)" and "(stripped)" options of methods;
wenzelm@12754
   927
  - undeclared rule case names default to numbers 1, 2, 3, ...;
wenzelm@12754
   928
  - added 'print_induct_rules' (covered by help item in recent Proof
wenzelm@12754
   929
    General versions);
wenzelm@11995
   930
  - moved induct/cases attributes to Pure, methods to Provers;
wenzelm@11995
   931
  - generic method setup instantiated for FOL and HOL;
wenzelm@11986
   932
wenzelm@12163
   933
* Pure: support multiple simultaneous goal statements, for example
wenzelm@12163
   934
"have a: A and b: B" (same for 'theorem' etc.); being a pure
wenzelm@12163
   935
meta-level mechanism, this acts as if several individual goals had
wenzelm@12163
   936
been stated separately; in particular common proof methods need to be
wenzelm@12163
   937
repeated in order to cover all claims; note that a single elimination
wenzelm@12163
   938
step is *not* sufficient to establish the two conjunctions, so this
wenzelm@12163
   939
fails:
wenzelm@12163
   940
wenzelm@12163
   941
  assume "A & B" then have A and B ..   (*".." fails*)
wenzelm@12163
   942
wenzelm@12163
   943
better use "obtain" in situations as above; alternative refer to
wenzelm@12163
   944
multi-step methods like 'auto', 'simp_all', 'blast+' etc.;
wenzelm@12163
   945
wenzelm@12078
   946
* Pure: proper integration with ``locales''; unlike the original
webertj@15154
   947
version by Florian Kammller, Isar locales package high-level proof
wenzelm@12078
   948
contexts rather than raw logical ones (e.g. we admit to include
wenzelm@12280
   949
attributes everywhere); operations on locales include merge and
wenzelm@12964
   950
rename; support for implicit arguments (``structures''); simultaneous
wenzelm@12964
   951
type-inference over imports and text; see also HOL/ex/Locales.thy for
wenzelm@12964
   952
some examples;
wenzelm@12078
   953
wenzelm@12707
   954
* Pure: the following commands have been ``localized'', supporting a
wenzelm@12707
   955
target locale specification "(in name)": 'lemma', 'theorem',
wenzelm@12707
   956
'corollary', 'lemmas', 'theorems', 'declare'; the results will be
wenzelm@12707
   957
stored both within the locale and at the theory level (exported and
wenzelm@12707
   958
qualified by the locale name);
wenzelm@12707
   959
wenzelm@12964
   960
* Pure: theory goals may now be specified in ``long'' form, with
wenzelm@12964
   961
ad-hoc contexts consisting of arbitrary locale elements. for example
wenzelm@12964
   962
``lemma foo: fixes x assumes "A x" shows "B x"'' (local syntax and
wenzelm@12964
   963
definitions may be given, too); the result is a meta-level rule with
wenzelm@12964
   964
the context elements being discharged in the obvious way;
wenzelm@12964
   965
wenzelm@12964
   966
* Pure: new proof command 'using' allows to augment currently used
wenzelm@12964
   967
facts after a goal statement ('using' is syntactically analogous to
wenzelm@12964
   968
'apply', but acts on the goal's facts only); this allows chained facts
wenzelm@12964
   969
to be separated into parts given before and after a claim, as in
wenzelm@12964
   970
``from a and b have C using d and e <proof>'';
wenzelm@12078
   971
wenzelm@11722
   972
* Pure: renamed "antecedent" case to "rule_context";
wenzelm@11722
   973
wenzelm@12964
   974
* Pure: new 'judgment' command records explicit information about the
wenzelm@12964
   975
object-logic embedding (used by several tools internally); no longer
wenzelm@12964
   976
use hard-wired "Trueprop";
wenzelm@12964
   977
wenzelm@11738
   978
* Pure: added 'corollary' command;
wenzelm@11738
   979
wenzelm@11722
   980
* Pure: fixed 'token_translation' command;
wenzelm@11722
   981
wenzelm@11899
   982
* Pure: removed obsolete 'exported' attribute;
wenzelm@11899
   983
wenzelm@11933
   984
* Pure: dummy pattern "_" in is/let is now automatically lifted over
wenzelm@11933
   985
bound variables: "ALL x. P x --> Q x" (is "ALL x. _ --> ?C x")
wenzelm@11899
   986
supersedes more cumbersome ... (is "ALL x. _ x --> ?C x");
wenzelm@11899
   987
wenzelm@11952
   988
* Pure: method 'atomize' presents local goal premises as object-level
wenzelm@11952
   989
statements (atomic meta-level propositions); setup controlled via
wenzelm@11952
   990
rewrite rules declarations of 'atomize' attribute; example
wenzelm@11952
   991
application: 'induct' method with proper rule statements in improper
wenzelm@11952
   992
proof *scripts*;
wenzelm@11952
   993
wenzelm@12106
   994
* Pure: emulation of instantiation tactics (rule_tac, cut_tac, etc.)
wenzelm@12106
   995
now consider the syntactic context of assumptions, giving a better
wenzelm@12106
   996
chance to get type-inference of the arguments right (this is
wenzelm@12106
   997
especially important for locales);
wenzelm@12106
   998
wenzelm@12312
   999
* Pure: "sorry" no longer requires quick_and_dirty in interactive
wenzelm@12312
  1000
mode;
wenzelm@12312
  1001
wenzelm@12405
  1002
* Pure/obtain: the formal conclusion "thesis", being marked as
wenzelm@12405
  1003
``internal'', may no longer be reference directly in the text;
wenzelm@12405
  1004
potential INCOMPATIBILITY, may need to use "?thesis" in rare
wenzelm@12405
  1005
situations;
wenzelm@12405
  1006
wenzelm@12405
  1007
* Pure: generic 'sym' attribute which declares a rule both as pure
wenzelm@12405
  1008
'elim?' and for the 'symmetric' operation;
wenzelm@12405
  1009
wenzelm@12877
  1010
* Pure: marginal comments ``--'' may now occur just anywhere in the
wenzelm@12877
  1011
text; the fixed correlation with particular command syntax has been
wenzelm@12877
  1012
discontinued;
wenzelm@12877
  1013
berghofe@13023
  1014
* Pure: new method 'rules' is particularly well-suited for proof
berghofe@13023
  1015
search in intuitionistic logic; a bit slower than 'blast' or 'fast',
berghofe@13023
  1016
but often produces more compact proof terms with less detours;
berghofe@13023
  1017
wenzelm@12364
  1018
* Pure/Provers/classical: simplified integration with pure rule
wenzelm@12364
  1019
attributes and methods; the classical "intro?/elim?/dest?"
wenzelm@12364
  1020
declarations coincide with the pure ones; the "rule" method no longer
wenzelm@12364
  1021
includes classically swapped intros; "intro" and "elim" methods no
wenzelm@12364
  1022
longer pick rules from the context; also got rid of ML declarations
wenzelm@12364
  1023
AddXIs/AddXEs/AddXDs; all of this has some potential for
wenzelm@12364
  1024
INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12364
  1025
wenzelm@12405
  1026
* Provers/classical: attribute 'swapped' produces classical inversions
wenzelm@12405
  1027
of introduction rules;
wenzelm@12405
  1028
wenzelm@12364
  1029
* Provers/simplifier: 'simplified' attribute may refer to explicit
wenzelm@12364
  1030
rules instead of full simplifier context; 'iff' attribute handles
wenzelm@12364
  1031
conditional rules;
wenzelm@11936
  1032
wenzelm@11745
  1033
* HOL: 'typedef' now allows alternative names for Rep/Abs morphisms;
wenzelm@11745
  1034
wenzelm@11690
  1035
* HOL: 'recdef' now fails on unfinished automated proofs, use
wenzelm@11633
  1036
"(permissive)" option to recover old behavior;
wenzelm@11633
  1037
wenzelm@11933
  1038
* HOL: 'inductive' no longer features separate (collective) attributes
wenzelm@11933
  1039
for 'intros' (was found too confusing);
wenzelm@11933
  1040
wenzelm@12405
  1041
* HOL: properly declared induction rules less_induct and
wenzelm@12405
  1042
wf_induct_rule;

*** HOL ***
wenzelm@11474
  1046
wenzelm@11702
  1047
* HOL: moved over to sane numeral syntax; the new policy is as
wenzelm@11702
  1048
follows:
wenzelm@11702
  1049
wenzelm@11702
  1050
  - 0 and 1 are polymorphic constants, which are defined on any
wenzelm@11702
  1051
  numeric type (nat, int, real etc.);
wenzelm@11702
  1052
wenzelm@11702
  1053
  - 2, 3, 4, ... and -1, -2, -3, ... are polymorphic numerals, based
wenzelm@11702
  1054
  binary representation internally;
wenzelm@11702
  1055
wenzelm@11702
  1056
  - type nat has special constructor Suc, and generally prefers Suc 0
wenzelm@11702
  1057
  over 1::nat and Suc (Suc 0) over 2::nat;
wenzelm@11702
  1058
wenzelm@12364
  1059
This change may cause significant problems of INCOMPATIBILITY; here
wenzelm@12364
  1060
are some hints on converting existing sources:
wenzelm@11702
  1061
wenzelm@11702
  1062
  - due to the new "num" token, "-0" and "-1" etc. are now atomic
wenzelm@11702
  1063
  entities, so expressions involving "-" (unary or binary minus) need
wenzelm@11702
  1064
  to be spaced properly;
wenzelm@11702
  1065
wenzelm@11702
  1066
  - existing occurrences of "1" may need to be constraint "1::nat" or
wenzelm@11702
  1067
  even replaced by Suc 0; similar for old "2";
wenzelm@11702
  1068
wenzelm@11702
  1069
  - replace "#nnn" by "nnn", and "#-nnn" by "-nnn";
wenzelm@11702
  1070
wenzelm@11702
  1071
  - remove all special provisions on numerals in proofs;
wenzelm@11702
  1072
wenzelm@13042
  1073
* HOL: simp rules nat_number expand numerals on nat to Suc/0
wenzelm@12837
  1074
representation (depends on bin_arith_simps in the default context);
wenzelm@12837
  1075
wenzelm@12736
  1076
* HOL: symbolic syntax for x^2 (numeral 2);
wenzelm@12736
  1077
wenzelm@12335
  1078
* HOL: the class of all HOL types is now called "type" rather than
wenzelm@12335
  1079
"term"; INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt references to this type class
wenzelm@12335
  1080
in axclass/classes, instance/arities, and (usually rare) occurrences
wenzelm@12335
  1081
in typings (of consts etc.); internally the class is called
wenzelm@12335
  1082
"HOL.type", ML programs should refer to HOLogic.typeS;
wenzelm@12335
  1083
wenzelm@12280
  1084
* HOL/record package improvements:
wenzelm@12280
  1085
  - new derived operations "fields" to build a partial record section,
wenzelm@12280
  1086
    "extend" to promote a fixed record to a record scheme, and
wenzelm@12280
  1087
    "truncate" for the reverse; cf. theorems "xxx.defs", which are *not*
wenzelm@12280
  1088
    declared as simp by default;
wenzelm@12587
  1089
  - shared operations ("more", "fields", etc.) now need to be always
wenzelm@12587
  1090
    qualified) --- potential INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12280
  1091
  - removed "make_scheme" operations (use "make" with "extend") --
wenzelm@12280
  1092
    INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@11937
  1093
  - removed "more" class (simply use "term") -- INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@12253
  1094
  - provides cases/induct rules for use with corresponding Isar
wenzelm@12253
  1095
    methods (for concrete records, record schemes, concrete more
wenzelm@12280
  1096
    parts, and schematic more parts -- in that order);
wenzelm@11930
  1097
  - internal definitions directly based on a light-weight abstract
wenzelm@11930
  1098
    theory of product types over typedef rather than datatype;
wenzelm@11930
  1099
berghofe@13023
  1100
* HOL: generic code generator for generating executable ML code from
berghofe@13023
  1101
specifications; specific support for HOL constructs such as inductive
berghofe@13023
  1102
datatypes and sets, as well as recursive functions; can be invoked
berghofe@13023
  1103
via 'generate_code' theory section;
berghofe@13023
  1104
wenzelm@11933
  1105
* HOL: canonical cases/induct rules for n-tuples (n = 3..7);
wenzelm@11933
  1106
paulson@13824
  1107
* HOL: consolidated and renamed several theories.  In particular:
wenzelm@14731
  1108
        Ord.thy has been absorbed into HOL.thy
wenzelm@14731
  1109
        String.thy has been absorbed into List.thy
wenzelm@14731
  1110
wenzelm@11802
  1111
* HOL: concrete setsum syntax "\<Sum>i:A. b" == "setsum (%i. b) A"
wenzelm@11802
  1112
(beware of argument permutation!);
wenzelm@11802
  1113
wenzelm@11657
  1114
* HOL: linorder_less_split superseded by linorder_cases;
wenzelm@11657
  1115
wenzelm@12917
  1116
* HOL/List: "nodups" renamed to "distinct";
nipkow@12889
  1117
wenzelm@11633
  1118
* HOL: added "The" definite description operator; move Hilbert's "Eps"
paulson@13824
  1119
to peripheral theory "Hilbert_Choice"; some INCOMPATIBILITIES:
paulson@13824
  1120
  - Ex_def has changed, now need to use some_eq_ex
wenzelm@11437
  1121
wenzelm@11572
  1122
* HOL: made split_all_tac safe; EXISTING PROOFS MAY FAIL OR LOOP, so
wenzelm@11572
  1123
in this (rare) case use:
wenzelm@11572
  1124
wenzelm@11572
  1125
  delSWrapper "split_all_tac"
wenzelm@11572
  1126
  addSbefore ("unsafe_split_all_tac", unsafe_split_all_tac)
wenzelm@11572
  1127
wenzelm@11572
  1128
* HOL: added safe wrapper "split_conv_tac" to claset; EXISTING PROOFS
wenzelm@11474
  1129
MAY FAIL;
nipkow@11361
  1130
wenzelm@11572
  1131
* HOL: introduced f^n = f o ... o f; warning: due to the limits of
wenzelm@11572
  1132
Isabelle's type classes, ^ on functions and relations has too general
wenzelm@11572
  1133
a domain, namely ('a * 'b) set and 'a => 'b; this means that it may be
wenzelm@11572
  1134
necessary to attach explicit type constraints;
nipkow@11307
  1135
wenzelm@12917
  1136
* HOL/Relation: the prefix name of the infix "O" has been changed from
wenzelm@12917
  1137
"comp" to "rel_comp"; INCOMPATIBILITY: a few theorems have been
wenzelm@12917
  1138
renamed accordingly (eg "compI" -> "rel_compI").
nipkow@12489
  1139
wenzelm@11487
  1140
* HOL: syntax translations now work properly with numerals and records
wenzelm@11487
  1141
expressions;
wenzelm@11474
  1142
wenzelm@12457
  1143
* HOL: bounded abstraction now uses syntax "%" / "\<lambda>" instead
wenzelm@12457
  1144
of "lam" -- INCOMPATIBILITY;
wenzelm@11474
  1145
wenzelm@11933
  1146
* HOL: got rid of some global declarations (potential INCOMPATIBILITY
wenzelm@11933
  1147
for ML tools): const "()" renamed "Product_Type.Unity", type "unit"
wenzelm@11933
  1148
renamed "Product_Type.unit";
wenzelm@11611
  1149
nipkow@12564
  1150
* HOL: renamed rtrancl_into_rtrancl2 to converse_rtrancl_into_rtrancl
nipkow@12564
  1151
wenzelm@12924
  1152
* HOL: removed obsolete theorem "optionE" (use "option.exhaust", or
wenzelm@12924
  1153
the "cases" method);
wenzelm@12924
  1154
wenzelm@12597
  1155
* HOL/GroupTheory: group theory examples including Sylow's theorem (by
webertj@15154
  1156
Florian Kammller);
wenzelm@12597
  1157
wenzelm@12608
  1158
* HOL/IMP: updated and converted to new-style theory format; several
wenzelm@12608
  1159
parts turned into readable document, with proper Isar proof texts and
wenzelm@12608
  1160
some explanations (by Gerwin Klein);
wenzelm@12597
  1161
wenzelm@12734
  1162
* HOL-Real: added Complex_Numbers (by Gertrud Bauer);
wenzelm@12734
  1163
wenzelm@12690
  1164
* HOL-Hyperreal is now a logic image;
wenzelm@12690
  1165
wenzelm@11611
  1166
wenzelm@12022
  1167
*** HOLCF ***
wenzelm@12022
  1168
wenzelm@12622
  1169
* Isar: consts/constdefs supports mixfix syntax for continuous
wenzelm@12622
  1170
operations;
wenzelm@12622
  1171
wenzelm@12622
  1172
* Isar: domain package adapted to new-style theory format, e.g. see
wenzelm@12622
  1173
HOLCF/ex/Dnat.thy;
wenzelm@12622
  1174
wenzelm@12622
  1175
* theory Lift: proper use of rep_datatype lift instead of ML hacks --
wenzelm@12280
  1176
potential INCOMPATIBILITY; now use plain induct_tac instead of former
wenzelm@12280
  1177
lift.induct_tac, always use UU instead of Undef;
wenzelm@12022
  1178
wenzelm@12597
  1179
* HOLCF/IMP: updated and converted to new-style theory;
wenzelm@12597
  1180
wenzelm@12022
  1181
wenzelm@11474
  1182
*** ZF ***
wenzelm@11474
  1183
wenzelm@12622
  1184
* Isar: proper integration of logic-specific tools and packages,
wenzelm@12622
  1185
including theory commands '(co)inductive', '(co)datatype',
wenzelm@12622
  1186
'rep_datatype', 'inductive_cases', as well as methods 'ind_cases',
wenzelm@12622
  1187
'induct_tac', 'case_tac', and 'typecheck' (with attribute 'TC');
wenzelm@12622
  1188
wenzelm@12622
  1189
* theory Main no longer includes AC; for the Axiom of Choice, base
wenzelm@12622
  1190
your theory on Main_ZFC;
wenzelm@12622
  1191
wenzelm@12622
  1192
* the integer library now covers quotients and remainders, with many
wenzelm@12622
  1193
laws relating division to addition, multiplication, etc.;
paulson@12563
  1194
wenzelm@12280
  1195
* ZF/UNITY: Chandy and Misra's UNITY is now available in ZF, giving a
wenzelm@12280
  1196
typeless version of the formalism;
wenzelm@12280
  1197
wenzelm@13025
  1198
* ZF/AC, Coind, IMP, Resid: updated and converted to new-style theory
wenzelm@13025
  1199
format;
wenzelm@12608
  1200
wenzelm@12280
  1201
* ZF/Induct: new directory for examples of inductive definitions,
wenzelm@12608
  1202
including theory Multiset for multiset orderings; converted to
wenzelm@12608
  1203
new-style theory format;
wenzelm@12177
  1204
wenzelm@13025
  1205
* ZF: many new theorems about lists, ordinals, etc.;
paulson@12850

wenzelm@11474
  1207
wenzelm@11474
  1208
*** General ***
wenzelm@11474
  1209
wenzelm@12280
  1210
* Pure/kernel: meta-level proof terms (by Stefan Berghofer); reference
wenzelm@12280
  1211
variable proof controls level of detail: 0 = no proofs (only oracle
wenzelm@12280
  1212
dependencies), 1 = lemma dependencies, 2 = compact proof terms; see
wenzelm@12280
  1213
also ref manual for further ML interfaces;
wenzelm@12280
  1214
wenzelm@12280
  1215
* Pure/axclass: removed obsolete ML interface
wenzelm@12280
  1216
goal_subclass/goal_arity;
wenzelm@12280
  1217
wenzelm@12280
  1218
* Pure/syntax: new token syntax "num" for plain numerals (without "#"
wenzelm@12280
  1219
of "xnum"); potential INCOMPATIBILITY, since -0, -1 etc. are now
wenzelm@12280
  1220
separate tokens, so expressions involving minus need to be spaced
wenzelm@12280
  1221
properly;
wenzelm@12280
  1222
wenzelm@12312
  1223
* Pure/syntax: support non-oriented infixes, using keyword "infix"
wenzelm@12312
  1224
rather than "infixl" or "infixr";
wenzelm@12312
  1225
wenzelm@12312
  1226
* Pure/syntax: concrete syntax for dummy type variables admits genuine
wenzelm@12312
  1227
sort constraint specifications in type inference; e.g. "x::_::foo"
wenzelm@12312
  1228
ensures that the type of "x" is of sort "foo" (but not necessarily a
wenzelm@12312
  1229
type variable);
wenzelm@12280
  1230
wenzelm@12280
  1231
* Pure/syntax: print modes "type_brackets" and "no_type_brackets"
wenzelm@12280
  1232
control output of nested => (types); the default behavior is
wenzelm@12280
  1233
"type_brackets";
wenzelm@12280
  1234
wenzelm@12280
  1235
* Pure/syntax: builtin parse translation for "_constify" turns valued
wenzelm@11817
  1236
tokens into AST constants;
wenzelm@11474
  1237
wenzelm@12280
  1238
* Pure/syntax: prefer later declarations of translations and print
wenzelm@12280
  1239
translation functions; potential INCOMPATIBILITY: need to reverse
wenzelm@12280
  1240
multiple declarations for same syntax element constant;
wenzelm@12280
  1241
wenzelm@12832
  1242
* Pure/show_hyps reset by default (in accordance to existing Isar
wenzelm@12832
  1243
practice);
wenzelm@12832
  1244
wenzelm@12280
  1245
* Provers/classical: renamed addaltern to addafter, addSaltern to
wenzelm@12280
  1246
addSafter;
wenzelm@12280
  1247
wenzelm@12280
  1248
* Provers/clasimp: ``iff'' declarations now handle conditional rules
wenzelm@12280
  1249
as well;
wenzelm@12253
  1250
wenzelm@12538
  1251
* system: tested support for MacOS X; should be able to get Isabelle +
wenzelm@12538
  1252
Proof General to work in a plain Terminal after installing Poly/ML
wenzelm@12538
  1253
(e.g. from the Isabelle distribution area) and GNU bash alone
wenzelm@12538
  1254
(e.g. from http://www.apple.com); full X11, XEmacs and X-Symbol
wenzelm@12538
  1255
support requires further installations, e.g. from
wenzelm@12538
  1256
http://fink.sourceforge.net/);
wenzelm@12538
  1257
wenzelm@12280
  1258
* system: support Poly/ML 4.1.1 (able to manage larger heaps);
wenzelm@11551
  1259
wenzelm@12753
  1260
* system: reduced base memory usage by Poly/ML (approx. 20 MB instead
wenzelm@12753
  1261
of 40 MB), cf. ML_OPTIONS;
wenzelm@12753
  1262
wenzelm@11633
  1263
* system: Proof General keywords specification is now part of the
wenzelm@11633
  1264
Isabelle distribution (see etc/isar-keywords.el);
wenzelm@11633
  1265
wenzelm@12728
  1266
* system: support for persistent Proof General sessions (refrain from
wenzelm@12728
  1267
outdating all loaded theories on startup); user may create writable
wenzelm@12728
  1268
logic images like this: ``isabelle -q HOL Test'';
wenzelm@12597
  1269
wenzelm@11551
  1270
* system: smart selection of Isabelle process versus Isabelle
wenzelm@11572
  1271
interface, accommodates case-insensitive file systems (e.g. HFS+); may
wenzelm@11572
  1272
run both "isabelle" and "Isabelle" even if file names are badly
wenzelm@11572
  1273
damaged (executable inspects the case of the first letter of its own
wenzelm@11572
  1274
name); added separate "isabelle-process" and "isabelle-interface";
wenzelm@11551
  1275
wenzelm@12472
  1276
* system: refrain from any attempt at filtering input streams; no
wenzelm@12472
  1277
longer support ``8bit'' encoding of old isabelle font, instead proper
wenzelm@12472
  1278
iso-latin characters may now be used; the related isatools
wenzelm@12472
  1279
"symbolinput" and "nonascii" have disappeared as well;
wenzelm@12472
  1280
wenzelm@12472
  1281
* system: removed old "xterm" interface (the print modes "xterm" and
wenzelm@12472
  1282
"xterm_color" are still available for direct use in a suitable
wenzelm@12472
  1283

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES ***
nipkow@10224
  1291
paulson@11241
  1292
* HOL: please note that theories in the Library and elsewhere often use the
paulson@11241
  1293
new-style (Isar) format; to refer to their theorems in an ML script you must
wenzelm@12622
  1294
bind them to ML identifers by e.g.      val thm_name = thm "thm_name";
paulson@11241
  1295
wenzelm@11043
  1296
* HOL: inductive package no longer splits induction rule aggressively,
wenzelm@11043
  1297
but only as far as specified by the introductions given; the old
oheimb@11130
  1298
format may be recovered via ML function complete_split_rule or attribute
wenzelm@11043
  1299
'split_rule (complete)';
wenzelm@11043
  1300
wenzelm@10998
  1301
* HOL: induct renamed to lfp_induct, lfp_Tarski to lfp_unfold,
wenzelm@10998
  1302
gfp_Tarski to gfp_unfold;
nipkow@10224
  1303
paulson@10288
  1304
* HOL: contrapos, contrapos2 renamed to contrapos_nn, contrapos_pp;
paulson@10288
  1305
wenzelm@10858
  1306
* HOL: infix "dvd" now has priority 50 rather than 70 (because it is a
wenzelm@10858
  1307
relation); infix "^^" has been renamed "``"; infix "``" has been
wenzelm@10858
  1308
renamed "`"; "univalent" has been renamed "single_valued";
nipkow@10793
  1309
wenzelm@10998
  1310
* HOL/Real: "rinv" and "hrinv" replaced by overloaded "inverse"
wenzelm@10998
  1311
operation;
wenzelm@10998
  1312
nipkow@10868
  1313
* HOLCF: infix "`" has been renamed "$"; the symbol syntax is \<cdot>;
nipkow@10856
  1314
wenzelm@10391
  1315
* Isar: 'obtain' no longer declares "that" fact as simp/intro;
wenzelm@10391
  1316
wenzelm@10401
  1317
* Isar/HOL: method 'induct' now handles non-atomic goals; as a
wenzelm@10401
  1318
consequence, it is no longer monotonic wrt. the local goal context
wenzelm@10401
  1319
(which is now passed through the inductive cases);
wenzelm@10401
  1320
wenzelm@10976
  1321
* Document preparation: renamed standard symbols \<ll> to \<lless> and
wenzelm@10976
  1322
\<gg> to \<ggreater>;
wenzelm@10976
  1323
nipkow@10224

wenzelm@10245
  1325
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@10245
  1326
wenzelm@10858
  1327
* \isabellestyle{NAME} selects version of Isabelle output (currently
wenzelm@10858
  1328
available: are "it" for near math-mode best-style output, "sl" for
wenzelm@10858
  1329
slanted text style, and "tt" for plain type-writer; if no
wenzelm@10858
  1330
\isabellestyle command is given, output is according to slanted
wenzelm@10858
  1331
type-writer);
wenzelm@10858
  1332
wenzelm@10322
  1333
* support sub/super scripts (for single symbols only), input syntax is
wenzelm@10322
  1334
like this: "A\<^sup>*" or "A\<^sup>\<star>";
wenzelm@10322
  1335
wenzelm@10858
  1336
* some more standard symbols; see Appendix A of the system manual for
wenzelm@11062
  1337
the complete list of symbols defined in isabellesym.sty;
wenzelm@10858
  1338
wenzelm@10998
  1339
* improved isabelle style files; more abstract symbol implementation
wenzelm@10998
  1340
(should now use \isamath{...} and \isatext{...} in custom symbol
wenzelm@10998
  1341
definitions);

wenzelm@10306
  1358

* Pure: Isar now suffers initial goal statements to contain unbound
wenzelm@10547
  1360
schematic variables (this does not conform to actual readable proof
wenzelm@10547
  1361
documents, due to unpredictable outcome and non-compositional proof
wenzelm@10547
  1362

wenzelm@10547
  1363
for Prolog-style synthesis of proven results;
wenzelm@10547
  1364
wenzelm@10391
  1365
* Pure: assumption method (an implicit finishing) now handles actual
wenzelm@10391
  1366
rules as well;
wenzelm@10391
  1367
wenzelm@10391
  1368
* Pure: improved 'obtain' --- moved to Pure, insert "that" into
wenzelm@10391
  1369
initial goal, declare "that" only as Pure intro (only for single
wenzelm@10391
  1370
steps); the "that" rule assumption may now be involved in implicit
wenzelm@10391
  1371
finishing, thus ".." becomes a feasible for trivial obtains;
wenzelm@10391
  1372
wenzelm@10391
  1373
* Pure: default proof step now includes 'intro_classes'; thus trivial
wenzelm@10391

instance proofs may be performed by "..";
wenzelm@10391
  1375
wenzelm@10391
  1376

  1377
statements as well;
wenzelm@10306
  1378
wenzelm@11097
  1379
* Pure: more robust selection of calculational rules;
wenzelm@11097
  1380
wenzelm@10858
  1381
* Pure: the builtin notion of 'finished' goal now includes the ==-refl
wenzelm@10858
  1382
rule (as well as the assumption rule);
wenzelm@10858
  1383
wenzelm@10858
  1384
* Pure: 'thm_deps' command visualizes dependencies of theorems and
wenzelm@10858
  1385
lemmas, using the graph browser tool;
wenzelm@10858
  1386
wenzelm@10944
  1387
* Pure: predict failure of "show" in interactive mode;
wenzelm@10944
  1388
wenzelm@11016
  1389
* Pure: 'thms_containing' now takes actual terms as arguments;
wenzelm@11016
  1390
wenzelm@10401
  1391
* HOL: improved method 'induct' --- now handles non-atomic goals
wenzelm@10401
  1392
(potential INCOMPATIBILITY); tuned error handling;
wenzelm@10401
  1393
wenzelm@10557
  1394
* HOL: cases and induct rules now provide explicit hints about the
wenzelm@10547
  1395
number of facts to be consumed (0 for "type" and 1 for "set" rules);
wenzelm@10547
  1396
any remaining facts are inserted into the goal verbatim;
wenzelm@10547
  1397
wenzelm@10858
  1398
* HOL: local contexts (aka cases) may now contain term bindings as
wenzelm@10858
  1399
well; the 'cases' and 'induct' methods new provide a ?case binding for
wenzelm@10858
  1400
the result to be shown in each case;
wenzelm@10858
  1401
wenzelm@10770
  1402
* HOL: added 'recdef_tc' command;

  1409
* HOL/Library: a collection of generic theories to be used together
wenzelm@10245
  1410
with main HOL; the theory loader path already includes this directory
wenzelm@10245
  1411
by default; the following existing theories have been moved here:
wenzelm@10245
  1412
HOL/Induct/Multiset, HOL/Induct/Acc (as Accessible_Part), HOL/While
wenzelm@10337
  1413
(as While_Combinator), HOL/Lex/Prefix (as List_Prefix);
wenzelm@10245
  1414
wenzelm@10966
  1415
* HOL/Unix: "Some aspects of Unix file-system security", a typical
wenzelm@10966
  1416
modelling and verification task performed in Isabelle/HOL +
wenzelm@10966
  1417
Isabelle/Isar + Isabelle document preparation (by Markus Wenzel).
wenzelm@10966
  1418
wenzelm@11094
  1419
* HOL/Algebra: special summation operator SUM no longer exists, it has
wenzelm@11094
  1420
been replaced by setsum; infix 'assoc' now has priority 50 (like
wenzelm@11094
  1421
'dvd'); axiom 'one_not_zero' has been moved from axclass 'ring' to
wenzelm@11094
  1422
'domain', this makes the theory consistent with mathematical
wenzelm@11094
  1423
literature;
wenzelm@11094
  1424
wenzelm@10514
  1425
* HOL basics: added overloaded operations "inverse" and "divide"
wenzelm@10726
  1426
(infix "/"), syntax for generic "abs" operation, generic summation
wenzelm@11094
  1427
operator \<Sum>;
wenzelm@10452
  1428
wenzelm@10391
  1429
* HOL/typedef: simplified package, provide more useful rules (see also
wenzelm@10391
  1430
HOL/subset.thy);
wenzelm@10391
  1431
wenzelm@10915
  1432
* HOL/datatype: induction rule for arbitrarily branching datatypes is
wenzelm@10915
  1433
now expressed as a proper nested rule (old-style tactic scripts may
wenzelm@10915
  1434
require atomize_strip_tac to cope with non-atomic premises);
wenzelm@10915
  1435
wenzelm@10915
  1436
* HOL: renamed theory "Prod" to "Product_Type", renamed "split" rule
wenzelm@10915
  1437
to "split_conv" (old name still available for compatibility);
wenzelm@10915
  1438
wenzelm@10915
  1439
* HOL: improved concrete syntax for strings (e.g. allows translation
wenzelm@10915
  1440
rules with string literals);
wenzelm@10915
  1441
paulson@12245
  1442
* HOL-Real-Hyperreal: this extends HOL-Real with the hyperreals
paulson@12245
  1443
 and Fleuriot's mechanization of analysis, including the transcendental
paulson@12245
  1444
 functions for the reals;
paulson@10756
  1445
wenzelm@11094
  1446
* HOL/Real, HOL/Hyperreal: improved arithmetic simplification;

paulson@10474
  1449
*** CTT ***
paulson@10474
  1450
wenzelm@10547
  1451
* CTT: x-symbol support for Pi, Sigma, -->, : (membership); note that
wenzelm@10547
  1452
"lam" is displayed as TWO lambda-symbols
paulson@10474
  1453
wenzelm@10547
  1454
* CTT: theory Main now available, containing everything (that is, Bool
wenzelm@10547

*** General ***
wenzelm@10391
  1459
wenzelm@10547
  1460
* Pure: the Simplifier has been implemented properly as a derived rule
wenzelm@10547
  1461
outside of the actual kernel (at last!); the overall performance
wenzelm@10547
  1462
penalty in practical applications is about 50%, while reliability of
wenzelm@10547
  1463
the Isabelle inference kernel has been greatly improved;
wenzelm@10547
  1464
wenzelm@11112
  1465
* print modes "brackets" and "no_brackets" control output of nested =>
wenzelm@11112
  1466
(types) and ==> (props); the default behaviour is "brackets";
wenzelm@11112
  1467
wenzelm@10391
  1468
* Provers: fast_tac (and friends) now handle actual object-logic rules
wenzelm@10391
  1469
as assumptions as well;
wenzelm@10391
  1470
wenzelm@11124
  1471
* system: support Poly/ML 4.0;
wenzelm@11124
  1472
wenzelm@11124
  1473
* system: isatool install handles KDE version 1 or 2;

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES ***
paulson@8014
  1481
wenzelm@8848
  1482
* HOL: simplification of natural numbers is much changed; to partly
wenzelm@8848
  1483
recover the old behaviour (e.g. to prevent n+n rewriting to #2*n)
wenzelm@8848
  1484
issue the following ML commands:
wenzelm@8848
  1485
wenzelm@8848
  1486
  Delsimprocs Nat_Numeral_Simprocs.cancel_numerals;
wenzelm@8848
  1487
  Delsimprocs [Nat_Numeral_Simprocs.combine_numerals];
paulson@8788
  1488
wenzelm@10129
  1489
* HOL: simplification no longer dives into case-expressions; this is
wenzelm@10129
  1490
controlled by "t.weak_case_cong" for each datatype t;
wenzelm@10003
  1491
wenzelm@10003
  1492
* HOL: nat_less_induct renamed to less_induct;
wenzelm@10003
  1493
wenzelm@10003
  1494
* HOL: systematic renaming of the SOME (Eps) rules, may use isatool
wenzelm@10003
  1495
fixsome to patch .thy and .ML sources automatically;
paulson@8967
  1496
wenzelm@10003
  1497
  select_equality  -> some_equality
wenzelm@10003
  1498

  selectI2EX       -> someI2_ex
wenzelm@10003
  1500
  selectI2         -> someI2
wenzelm@10003
  1501
  selectI          -> someI
wenzelm@10003
  1502
  select1_equality -> some1_equality
wenzelm@10003
  1503
  Eps_sym_eq       -> some_sym_eq_trivial
wenzelm@10003
  1504
  Eps_eq           -> some_eq_trivial
wenzelm@10003
  1505
wenzelm@10003
  1506
* HOL: exhaust_tac on datatypes superceded by new generic case_tac;
wenzelm@10003
  1507
wenzelm@10003
  1508
* HOL: removed obsolete theorem binding expand_if (refer to split_if
wenzelm@10003
  1509
instead);
wenzelm@10003
  1510
wenzelm@10003
  1511
* HOL: the recursion equations generated by 'recdef' are now called
wenzelm@10003
  1512
f.simps instead of f.rules;
wenzelm@10003
  1513
wenzelm@10003
  1514
* HOL: qed_spec_mp now also handles bounded ALL as well;
wenzelm@10003
  1515
wenzelm@10003
  1516
* HOL: 0 is now overloaded, so the type constraint ":: nat" may
wenzelm@10003
  1517
sometimes be needed;
wenzelm@10003
  1518
wenzelm@10003
  1519
* HOL: the constant for "f``x" is now "image" rather than "op ``";
paulson@8014
  1520
paulson@10065
  1521
* HOL: the constant for "f-``x" is now "vimage" rather than "op -``";
paulson@10065
  1522
wenzelm@9330
  1523
* HOL: the disjoint sum is now "<+>" instead of "Plus"; the cartesian
wenzelm@9330
  1524
product is now "<*>" instead of "Times"; the lexicographic product is
wenzelm@9330
  1525
now "<*lex*>" instead of "**";
nipkow@8705
  1526
wenzelm@10003
  1527
* HOL: theory Sexp is now in HOL/Induct examples (it used to be part
wenzelm@10003
  1528
of main HOL, but was unused); better use HOL's datatype package;
paulson@9971
  1529
wenzelm@10137
  1530
* HOL: removed "symbols" syntax for constant "override" of theory Map;
wenzelm@10137
  1531
the old syntax may be recovered as follows:
wenzelm@10137
  1532
wenzelm@10137
  1533
  syntax (symbols)
wenzelm@10137
  1534
    override  :: "('a ~=> 'b) => ('a ~=> 'b) => ('a ~=> 'b)"
wenzelm@10137
  1535
      (infixl "\\<oplus>" 100)
wenzelm@10137
  1536
wenzelm@8848
  1537
* HOL/Real: "rabs" replaced by overloaded "abs" function;
wenzelm@8848
  1538
wenzelm@8887
  1539
* HOL/ML: even fewer consts are declared as global (see theories Ord,
wenzelm@8887
  1540
Lfp, Gfp, WF); this only affects ML packages that refer to const names
wenzelm@8887
  1541
internally;
wenzelm@8887
  1542
wenzelm@10003
  1543
* HOL and ZF: syntax for quotienting wrt an equivalence relation
wenzelm@10003
  1544
changed from A/r to A//r;
wenzelm@9908
  1545
wenzelm@10003
  1546
* ZF: new treatment of arithmetic (nat & int) may break some old
wenzelm@10003
  1547
proofs;
wenzelm@8921
  1548
wenzelm@10003
  1549
* Isar: renamed some attributes (RS -> THEN, simplify -> simplified,
wenzelm@10003
  1550
rulify -> rule_format, elimify -> elim_format, ...);
paulson@9542
  1551
wenzelm@9941
  1552
* Isar/Provers: intro/elim/dest attributes changed; renamed
wenzelm@9941
  1553
intro/intro!/intro!! flags to intro!/intro/intro? (in most cases, one
wenzelm@9937
  1554
should have to change intro!! to intro? only); replaced "delrule" by
wenzelm@9937
  1555
"rule del";
wenzelm@9437
  1556
wenzelm@9612
  1557
* Isar/HOL: renamed "intrs" to "intros" in inductive definitions;
wenzelm@9612
  1558
wenzelm@9437
  1559
* Provers: strengthened force_tac by using new first_best_tac;
oheimb@9402
  1560
wenzelm@10003
  1561
* LaTeX document preparation: several changes of isabelle.sty (see
wenzelm@10003
  1562
lib/texinputs);
wenzelm@8729
  1563
paulson@8014
  1564
wenzelm@8487
  1565
*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@8358
  1566
wenzelm@9198
  1567
* formal comments (text blocks etc.) in new-style theories may now
wenzelm@9753
  1568
contain antiquotations of thm/prop/term/typ/text to be presented
wenzelm@9753
  1569
according to latex print mode; concrete syntax is like this:
wenzelm@9753
  1570
@{term[show_types] "f(x) = a + x"};
wenzelm@9198
  1571
wenzelm@8358
  1572
* isatool mkdir provides easy setup of Isabelle session directories,
wenzelm@8518
  1573
including proper document sources;
wenzelm@8358
  1574
wenzelm@8358
  1575
* generated LaTeX sources are now deleted after successful run
wenzelm@8358
  1576
(isatool document -c); may retain a copy somewhere else via -D option
wenzelm@8358
  1577
of isatool usedir;
wenzelm@8358
  1578
wenzelm@8566
  1579
* isatool usedir -D now lets isatool latex -o sty update the Isabelle
wenzelm@10003
  1580
style files, achieving self-contained LaTeX sources and simplifying
wenzelm@10003
  1581
LaTeX debugging;
wenzelm@8566
  1582
wenzelm@8518
  1583
* old-style theories now produce (crude) LaTeX output as well;
wenzelm@8358
  1584
wenzelm@9057
  1585
* browser info session directories are now self-contained (may be put
wenzelm@9437
  1586
on WWW server seperately); improved graphs of nested sessions; removed
wenzelm@9437
  1587
graph for 'all sessions';
wenzelm@9057
  1588
wenzelm@10003
  1589
* several improvements in isabelle style files; \isabellestyle{it}
wenzelm@10003
  1590
produces fake math mode output; \isamarkupheader is now \section by
wenzelm@10003
  1591
default; see lib/texinputs/isabelle.sty etc.;
wenzelm@9489
  1592
wenzelm@8358
  1593
wenzelm@8184
  1594
*** Isar ***
wenzelm@8184
  1595
wenzelm@10003
  1596
* Isar/Pure: local results and corresponding term bindings are now
wenzelm@10003
  1597
subject to Hindley-Milner polymorphism (similar to ML); this
wenzelm@10003
  1598
accommodates incremental type-inference very nicely;
wenzelm@8283
  1599
wenzelm@10003
  1600
* Isar/Pure: new derived language element 'obtain' supports
wenzelm@10003
  1601
generalized existence reasoning;
wenzelm@8621
  1602
wenzelm@10003
  1603
* Isar/Pure: new calculational elements 'moreover' and 'ultimately'
wenzelm@10003
  1604
support accumulation of results, without applying any rules yet;
wenzelm@10003
  1605
useful to collect intermediate results without explicit name
wenzelm@10003
  1606
references, and for use with transitivity rules with more than 2
wenzelm@10003
  1607
premises;
wenzelm@8184
  1608
wenzelm@10003
  1609
* Isar/Pure: scalable support for case-analysis type proofs: new
wenzelm@10003
  1610
'case' language element refers to local contexts symbolically, as
wenzelm@10003
  1611
produced by certain proof methods; internally, case names are attached
wenzelm@10003
  1612
to theorems as "tags";
wenzelm@8440
  1613
wenzelm@10003
  1614
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'hide' removes declarations from
wenzelm@9330
  1615
class/type/const name spaces;
wenzelm@9330
  1616
wenzelm@10003
  1617
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'defs' supports option "(overloaded)" to
wenzelm@9330
  1618
indicate potential overloading;
wenzelm@9330
  1619
wenzelm@10003
  1620
* Isar/Pure: changed syntax of local blocks from {{ }} to { };
wenzelm@8621
  1621
wenzelm@10003
  1622
* Isar/Pure: syntax of sorts made 'inner', i.e. have to write
wenzelm@10003
  1623
"{a,b,c}" instead of {a,b,c};
wenzelm@9011
  1624
wenzelm@10003
  1625
* Isar/Pure now provides its own version of intro/elim/dest
wenzelm@10003
  1626
attributes; useful for building new logics, but beware of confusion
wenzelm@10003
  1627
with the version in Provers/classical;
wenzelm@9612
  1628
wenzelm@10003
  1629
* Isar/Pure: the local context of (non-atomic) goals is provided via
wenzelm@10003
  1630
case name 'antecedent';
wenzelm@8440
  1631
wenzelm@10003
  1632
* Isar/Pure: removed obsolete 'transfer' attribute (transfer of thms
wenzelm@10003
  1633
to the current context is now done automatically);
wenzelm@9383
  1634
wenzelm@10003
  1635
* Isar/Pure: theory command 'method_setup' provides a simple interface
wenzelm@10003
  1636
for definining proof methods in ML;
wenzelm@9612
  1637
wenzelm@10003
  1638
* Isar/Provers: intro/elim/dest attributes changed; renamed
wenzelm@9941
  1639
intro/intro!/intro!! flags to intro!/intro/intro? (INCOMPATIBILITY, in
wenzelm@9941
  1640
most cases, one should have to change intro!! to intro? only);
wenzelm@9941
  1641
replaced "delrule" by "rule del";
wenzelm@8283
  1642
wenzelm@10003
  1643
* Isar/Provers: new 'hypsubst' method, plain 'subst' method and
wenzelm@10003
  1644
'symmetric' attribute (the latter supercedes [RS sym]);
wenzelm@10003
  1645
wenzelm@10003
  1646
* Isar/Provers: splitter support (via 'split' attribute and 'simp'
wenzelm@10003
  1647
method modifier); 'simp' method: 'only:' modifier removes loopers as
wenzelm@10003
  1648
well (including splits);
wenzelm@10003
  1649
wenzelm@10003
  1650
* Isar/Provers: Simplifier and Classical methods now support all kind
wenzelm@10003
  1651
of modifiers used in the past, including 'cong', 'iff', etc.
wenzelm@10003
  1652
wenzelm@10003
  1653
* Isar/Provers: added 'fastsimp' and 'clarsimp' methods (combination
wenzelm@10003
  1654
of Simplifier and Classical reasoner);
wenzelm@10003
  1655
wenzelm@10003
  1656
* Isar/HOL: new proof method 'cases' and improved version of 'induct'
wenzelm@10003
  1657
now support named cases; major packages (inductive, datatype, primrec,
wenzelm@10003
  1658
recdef) support case names and properly name parameters;
wenzelm@9612
  1659
wenzelm@10003
  1660
* Isar/HOL: new transitivity rules for substitution in inequalities --
wenzelm@10003
  1661
monotonicity conditions are extracted to be proven at end of
wenzelm@10003
  1662
calculations;
wenzelm@10003
  1663
wenzelm@10003
  1664
* Isar/HOL: removed 'case_split' thm binding, should use 'cases' proof
wenzelm@10003
  1665
method anyway;
wenzelm@10003
  1666
wenzelm@10003
  1667
* Isar/HOL: removed old expand_if = split_if; theorems if_splits =
wenzelm@10003
  1668
split_if split_if_asm; datatype package provides theorems foo.splits =
wenzelm@10003
  1669
foo.split foo.split_asm for each datatype;
wenzelm@10003
  1670
wenzelm@10003
  1671
* Isar/HOL: tuned inductive package, rename "intrs" to "intros"
wenzelm@10003
  1672
(potential INCOMPATIBILITY), emulation of mk_cases feature for proof
wenzelm@10003
  1673
scripts: new 'inductive_cases' command and 'ind_cases' method; (Note:
wenzelm@10003
  1674
use "(cases (simplified))" method in proper proof texts);
wenzelm@10003
  1675
wenzelm@10003
  1676
* Isar/HOL: added global 'arith_split' attribute for 'arith' method;
wenzelm@10003
  1677
wenzelm@10003
  1678
* Isar: names of theorems etc. may be natural numbers as well;
wenzelm@10003
  1679
wenzelm@10003
  1680
* Isar: 'pr' command: optional arguments for goals_limit and
wenzelm@9724
  1681
ProofContext.prems_limit; no longer prints theory contexts, but only
wenzelm@9724
  1682
proof states;
wenzelm@8487
  1683
wenzelm@10003
  1684
* Isar: diagnostic commands 'pr', 'thm', 'prop', 'term', 'typ' admit
wenzelm@8518
  1685
additional print modes to be specified; e.g. "pr(latex)" will print
wenzelm@8518
  1686
proof state according to the Isabelle LaTeX style;
wenzelm@8487
  1687
wenzelm@10003
  1688
* Isar: improved support for emulating tactic scripts, including proof
wenzelm@9612
  1689
methods 'rule_tac' etc., 'cut_tac', 'thin_tac', 'subgoal_tac',
wenzelm@9612
  1690
'rename_tac', 'rotate_tac', 'tactic', and 'case_tac' / 'induct_tac'
wenzelm@9612
  1691
(for HOL datatypes);
wenzelm@8534
  1692
wenzelm@10003
  1693
* Isar: simplified (more robust) goal selection of proof methods: 1st
wenzelm@10003
  1694
goal, all goals, or explicit goal specifier (tactic emulation); thus
wenzelm@10003
  1695
'proof method scripts' have to be in depth-first order;
wenzelm@8673
  1696
wenzelm@10003
  1697
* Isar: tuned 'let' syntax: replaced 'as' keyword by 'and';
wenzelm@8729
  1698
wenzelm@10003
  1699
* Isar: removed 'help' command, which hasn't been too helpful anyway;
wenzelm@10003
  1700
should instead use individual commands for printing items
wenzelm@10003
  1701
(print_commands, print_methods etc.);
wenzelm@9224
  1702
wenzelm@10003
  1703
* Isar: added 'nothing' --- the empty list of theorems;

  1733
recursive procedures, by David von Oheimb;
wenzelm@10164
  1734
wenzelm@10003
  1735
* HOL/Lambda: converted into new-style theory and document;
paulson@9542
  1736
wenzelm@10003
  1737
* HOL/ex/Multiquote: example of multiple nested quotations and
wenzelm@10003
  1738
anti-quotations -- basically a generalized version of de-Bruijn
wenzelm@10003
  1739
representation; very useful in avoiding lifting of operations;
wenzelm@8848
  1740
wenzelm@9612
  1741
* HOL/record: added general record equality rule to simpset; fixed
wenzelm@9612
  1742
select-update simplification procedure to handle extended records as
wenzelm@9612
  1743
well; admit "r" as field name;
paulson@9542
  1744
paulson@8967
  1745
* HOL: 0 is now overloaded over the new sort "zero", allowing its use with
paulson@8967
  1746
other numeric types and also as the identity of groups, rings, etc.;
paulson@8967
  1747
paulson@8967
  1748
* HOL: new axclass plus_ac0 for addition with the AC-laws and 0 as identity.
paulson@8967
  1749
Types nat and int belong to this axclass;
paulson@8967
  1750
wenzelm@10003
  1751
* HOL: greatly improved simplification involving numerals of type nat, int, real:
paulson@8788
  1752
   (i + #8 + j) = Suc k simplifies to  #7 + (i + j) = k
paulson@8832
  1753
   i*j + k + j*#3*i     simplifies to  #4*(i*j) + k
paulson@8832
  1754
  two terms #m*u and #n*u are replaced by #(m+n)*u
paulson@8832
  1755
    (where #m, #n and u can implicitly be 1; this is simproc combine_numerals)
paulson@8832
  1756
  and the term/formula #m*u+x ~~ #n*u+y simplifies simplifies to #(m-n)+x ~~ y
paulson@8832
  1757
    or x ~~ #(n-m)+y, where ~~ is one of = < <= or - (simproc cancel_numerals);
paulson@8736
  1758
wenzelm@10003
  1759
* HOL: meson_tac is available (previously in ex/meson.ML); it is a
wenzelm@10003
  1760
powerful prover for predicate logic but knows nothing of clasets; see
wenzelm@10003

ex/mesontest.ML and ex/mesontest2.ML for example applications;
paulson@9835
  1762
wenzelm@8848
  1763
* HOL: new version of "case_tac" subsumes both boolean case split and
wenzelm@8440
  1764
"exhaust_tac" on datatypes; INCOMPATIBILITY: exhaust_tac no longer
wenzelm@8518

exists, may define val exhaust_tac = case_tac for ad-hoc portability;
wenzelm@8440
  1766
wenzelm@8848
  1767
* HOL: simplification no longer dives into case-expressions: only the
wenzelm@10129
  1768
selector expression is simplified, but not the remaining arms; to
wenzelm@10129
  1769
enable full simplification of case-expressions for datatype t, you may
wenzelm@10129
  1770
remove t.weak_case_cong from the simpset, either globally (Delcongs
wenzelm@10129

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

wenzelm@8848
  1773
* HOL/recdef: the recursion equations generated by 'recdef' for
wenzelm@8848
  1774
function 'f' are now called f.simps instead of f.rules; if all
wenzelm@8848
  1775
termination conditions are proved automatically, these simplification
wenzelm@8848
  1776
rules are added to the simpset, as in primrec; rules may be named
wenzelm@8848
  1777
individually as well, resulting in a separate list of theorems for
wenzelm@8848
  1778
each equation;
wenzelm@8848
  1779
wenzelm@9489
  1780
* HOL/While is a new theory that provides a while-combinator. It
wenzelm@9489
  1781
permits the definition of tail-recursive functions without the
wenzelm@9489
  1782
provision of a termination measure. The latter is necessary once the
wenzelm@9489
  1783
invariant proof rule for while is applied.
nipkow@9457
  1784
wenzelm@10003
  1785
* HOL: new (overloaded) notation for the set of elements below/above

  1790
* HOL: new tactic induct_thm_tac: thm -> string -> int -> tactic
nipkow@9746
  1791
induct_tac th "x1 ... xn" expects th to have a conclusion of the form
nipkow@9746
  1792
P v1 ... vn and abbreviates res_inst_tac [("v1","x1"),...,("vn","xn")] th;
nipkow@9746

  1794
* HOL/Real: "rabs" replaced by overloaded "abs" function;
nipkow@9737
  1795
wenzelm@10003
  1796
* HOL: theory Sexp now in HOL/Induct examples (it used to be part of
wenzelm@10003
  1797
main HOL, but was unused);
nipkow@8626
  1798
wenzelm@10003
  1799
* HOL: fewer consts declared as global (e.g. have to refer to
wenzelm@10003
  1800
"Lfp.lfp" instead of "lfp" internally; affects ML packages only);
wenzelm@8887
  1801
wenzelm@10003
  1802
* HOL: tuned AST representation of nested pairs, avoiding bogus output
wenzelm@10003
  1803
in case of overlap with user translations (e.g. judgements over
wenzelm@10003
  1804
tuples); (note that the underlying logical represenation is still
wenzelm@10003
  1805
bogus);

paulson@9542
  1809
wenzelm@10003
  1810
* ZF: simplification automatically cancels common terms in arithmetic
wenzelm@10003
  1811
expressions over nat and int;
paulson@9542
  1812
wenzelm@10003
  1813
* ZF: new treatment of nat to minimize type-checking: all operators
wenzelm@10003
  1814
coerce their operands to a natural number using the function natify,
wenzelm@10003
  1815
making the algebraic laws unconditional;
paulson@9542
  1816
wenzelm@10003
  1817
* ZF: as above, for int: operators coerce their operands to an integer
wenzelm@10003
  1818
using the function intify;
paulson@9542
  1819
wenzelm@10003
  1820
* ZF: the integer library now contains many of the usual laws for the
wenzelm@10003
  1821
orderings, including $<=, and monotonicity laws for $+ and $*;
paulson@9542
  1822
wenzelm@10003
  1823
* ZF: new example ZF/ex/NatSum to demonstrate integer arithmetic
wenzelm@10003
  1824
simplification;
paulson@9388
  1825
wenzelm@10003
  1826
* FOL and ZF: AddIffs now available, giving theorems of the form P<->Q
wenzelm@10003
  1827

assumptions; note that auto_tac uses blast_tac internally as well;
wenzelm@10003
  1834
wenzelm@10003
  1835
* Provers: new functions rulify/rulify_no_asm: thm -> thm for turning
wenzelm@10003
  1836
outer -->/All/Ball into ==>/!!; qed_spec_mp now uses rulify_no_asm;
wenzelm@10003
  1837
wenzelm@9941
  1838
* Provers: delrules now handles destruct rules as well (no longer need
wenzelm@9941
  1839
explicit make_elim);
wenzelm@9941
  1840
wenzelm@10003
  1841
* Provers: Blast_tac now warns of and ignores "weak elimination rules" e.g.
wenzelm@10003
  1842
  [| inj ?f;          ?f ?x = ?f ?y; ?x = ?y ==> ?W |] ==> ?W
wenzelm@10003
  1843
use instead the strong form,
wenzelm@10003
  1844
  [| inj ?f; ~ ?W ==> ?f ?x = ?f ?y; ?x = ?y ==> ?W |] ==> ?W
wenzelm@10003
  1845
in HOL, FOL and ZF the function cla_make_elim will create such rules
wenzelm@10003
  1846
from destruct-rules;

  1847
wenzelm@9709

situations;
wenzelm@10003
  1859
wenzelm@9709
  1860
* system: compression of ML heaps images may now be controlled via -c
wenzelm@9709
  1861
option of isabelle and isatool usedir (currently only observed by
wenzelm@9709
  1862
Poly/ML);
wenzelm@8358
  1863
wenzelm@9981
  1864
* system: isatool installfonts may handle X-Symbol fonts as well (very
wenzelm@9981
  1865
useful for remote X11);
wenzelm@9981
  1866
wenzelm@9709
  1867
* system: provide TAGS file for Isabelle sources;
wenzelm@9052
  1868

wenzelm@9288
  1871
wenzelm@8994
  1872
* ML: renamed flags Syntax.trace_norm_ast to Syntax.trace_ast; global
wenzelm@8994
  1873
timing flag supersedes proof_timing and Toplevel.trace;
wenzelm@8994
  1874
wenzelm@10003
  1875
* ML: new combinators |>> and |>>> for incremental transformations
wenzelm@10003
  1876
with secondary results (e.g. certain theory extensions):
wenzelm@10003
  1877
wenzelm@9330
  1878
* ML: PureThy.add_defs gets additional argument to indicate potential

overloading (usually false);
wenzelm@9330
  1880
wenzelm@10003

paulson@6922
  1892

  1971
more robust handling of platform specific ML images for SML/NJ;
wenzelm@7215

wenzelm@5973
  1981
wenzelm@6269

* There are now decision procedures for linear arithmetic over nat and
wenzelm@6343
  2021
int:
nipkow@6131
  2022
wenzelm@6343
  2023
1. arith_tac copes with arbitrary formulae involving `=', `<', `<=',
wenzelm@6343
  2024
`+', `-', `Suc', `min', `max' and numerical constants; other subterms
wenzelm@6343
  2025
are treated as atomic; subformulae not involving type `nat' or `int'
wenzelm@6343
  2026
are ignored; quantified subformulae are ignored unless they are
wenzelm@6343
  2027
positive universal or negative existential. The tactic has to be
wenzelm@6343
  2028
invoked by hand and can be a little bit slow. In particular, the
wenzelm@6343
  2029
running time is exponential in the number of occurrences of `min' and
wenzelm@6343
  2030
`max', and `-' on `nat'.
nipkow@6131
  2031
wenzelm@6343
  2032
2. fast_arith_tac is a cut-down version of arith_tac: it only takes
wenzelm@6343
  2033
(negated) (in)equalities among the premises and the conclusion into
wenzelm@6343
  2034
account (i.e. no compound formulae) and does not know about `min' and
wenzelm@6343
  2035
`max', and `-' on `nat'. It is fast and is used automatically by the
wenzelm@6343
  2036
simplifier.
nipkow@6131
  2037
wenzelm@6343
  2038
NB: At the moment, these decision procedures do not cope with mixed
wenzelm@6343
  2039
nat/int formulae where the two parts interact, such as `m < n ==>
wenzelm@6343
  2040
int(m) < int(n)'.
oheimb@6028
  2041
wenzelm@7215

wenzelm@7313
  2043
efficiently as bit strings); setup for types nat/int/real is in place;
wenzelm@7215
  2044
INCOMPATIBILITY: since numeral syntax is now polymorphic, rather than
wenzelm@7215

  2053
paulson@7287
  2054
* An interface to the Stanford Validity Checker (SVC) is available through the
paulson@7287
  2055
tactic svc_tac.  Propositional tautologies and theorems of linear arithmetic
paulson@7287
  2056
are proved automatically.  SVC must be installed separately, and its results
paulson@7287
  2057
must be TAKEN ON TRUST (Isabelle does not check the proofs, but tags any
paulson@7287
  2058
invocation of the underlying oracle).  For SVC see

wenzelm@6343
  2189
wenzelm@6343
  2190
* refined token_translation interface; INCOMPATIBILITY: output length
wenzelm@6343
  2191
now of type real instead of int;
wenzelm@6343
  2192
wenzelm@7196
  2193
* theory loader actions may be traced via new ThyInfo.add_hook
wenzelm@7196
  2194
interface (see src/Pure/Thy/thy_info.ML); example application: keep
wenzelm@7196
  2195
your own database of information attached to *whole* theories -- as
wenzelm@7196
  2196
opposed to intra-theory data slots offered via TheoryDataFun;
wenzelm@7196
  2197
wenzelm@7647
  2198
* proper handling of dangling sort hypotheses (at last!);
wenzelm@7647
  2199
Thm.strip_shyps and Drule.strip_shyps_warning take care of removing
wenzelm@7647
  2200
extra sort hypotheses that can be witnessed from the type signature;
wenzelm@7986
  2201
the force_strip_shyps flag is gone, any remaining shyps are simply
wenzelm@7986
  2202
left in the theorem (with a warning issued by strip_shyps_warning);

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES (see below for more details) ***
wenzelm@4842
  2210
wenzelm@5726
  2211
* several changes of automated proof tools;
wenzelm@5373
  2212
wenzelm@5726
  2213
* HOL: major changes to the inductive and datatype packages, including
wenzelm@5726
  2214
some minor incompatibilities of theory syntax;
berghofe@5214
  2215
wenzelm@5726
  2216
* HOL: renamed r^-1 to 'converse' from 'inverse'; 'inj_onto' is now
wenzelm@5217
  2217
called `inj_on';
paulson@5160
  2218
nipkow@5275
  2219
* HOL: removed duplicate thms in Arith:
nipkow@5275
  2220
  less_imp_add_less  should be replaced by  trans_less_add1
nipkow@5275
  2221
  le_imp_add_le      should be replaced by  trans_le_add1
paulson@5160
  2222
wenzelm@5726
  2223
* HOL: unary minus is now overloaded (new type constraints may be
wenzelm@5726
  2224
required);
paulson@5490
  2225
wenzelm@5726
  2226
* HOL and ZF: unary minus for integers is now #- instead of #~.  In
wenzelm@5726
  2227
ZF, expressions such as n#-1 must be changed to n#- 1, since #-1 is
wenzelm@5726
  2228
now taken as an integer constant.
paulson@5541
  2229
wenzelm@5726
  2230
* Pure: ML function 'theory_of' renamed to 'theory';
wenzelm@5397
  2231
wenzelm@5363
  2232
wenzelm@5127
  2233
*** Proof tools ***
nipkow@4880
  2234
nipkow@5657
  2235
* Simplifier:
nipkow@5657
  2236
  1. Asm_full_simp_tac is now more aggressive.
nipkow@5657
  2237
     1. It will sometimes reorient premises if that increases their power to
nipkow@5657
  2238
        simplify.
nipkow@5657
  2239
     2. It does no longer proceed strictly from left to right but may also
nipkow@5657
  2240
        rotate premises to achieve further simplification.
nipkow@5657
  2241
     For compatibility reasons there is now Asm_lr_simp_tac which is like the
nipkow@5657
  2242
     old Asm_full_simp_tac in that it does not rotate premises.
nipkow@5657
  2243
  2. The simplifier now knows a little bit about nat-arithmetic.
nipkow@4880
  2244
wenzelm@5127
  2245
* Classical reasoner: wrapper mechanism for the classical reasoner now
wenzelm@5127
  2246
allows for selected deletion of wrappers, by introduction of names for
wenzelm@5127
  2247
wrapper functionals.  This implies that addbefore, addSbefore,
wenzelm@5127
  2248
addaltern, and addSaltern now take a pair (name, tactic) as argument,
wenzelm@5127
  2249
and that adding two tactics with the same name overwrites the first
wenzelm@5127
  2250
one (emitting a warning).
oheimb@4824
  2251
  type wrapper = (int -> tactic) -> (int -> tactic)
oheimb@4649
  2252
  setWrapper, setSWrapper, compWrapper and compSWrapper are replaced by
oheimb@4824
  2253
  addWrapper, addSWrapper: claset * (string * wrapper) -> claset
oheimb@4824
  2254
  delWrapper, delSWrapper: claset *  string            -> claset
oheimb@4649
  2255
  getWrapper is renamed to appWrappers, getSWrapper to appSWrappers;
oheimb@4649
  2256
wenzelm@5705
  2257
* Classical reasoner: addbefore/addSbefore now have APPEND/ORELSE
wenzelm@5726
  2258
semantics; addbefore now affects only the unsafe part of step_tac
wenzelm@5726
  2259
etc.; this affects addss/auto_tac/force_tac, so EXISTING PROOFS MAY
wenzelm@5726
  2260
FAIL, but proofs should be fixable easily, e.g. by replacing Auto_tac
wenzelm@5726
  2261
by Force_tac;
oheimb@5524
  2262
wenzelm@5726
  2263
* Classical reasoner: setwrapper to setWrapper and compwrapper to
wenzelm@5726
  2264
compWrapper; added safe wrapper (and access functions for it);
oheimb@5524
  2265
wenzelm@5127
  2266
* HOL/split_all_tac is now much faster and fails if there is nothing
wenzelm@5726
  2267
to split.  Some EXISTING PROOFS MAY REQUIRE ADAPTION because the order
wenzelm@5726
  2268
and the names of the automatically generated variables have changed.
wenzelm@5726
  2269
split_all_tac has moved within claset() from unsafe wrappers to safe
wenzelm@5726
  2270
wrappers, which means that !!-bound variables are split much more
wenzelm@5726
  2271
aggressively, and safe_tac and clarify_tac now split such variables.
wenzelm@5726
  2272
If this splitting is not appropriate, use delSWrapper "split_all_tac".
wenzelm@5726
  2273
Note: the same holds for record_split_tac, which does the job of
wenzelm@5726
  2274
split_all_tac for record fields.
wenzelm@5127
  2275
wenzelm@5726
  2276
* HOL/Simplifier: Rewrite rules for case distinctions can now be added
wenzelm@5726
  2277
permanently to the default simpset using Addsplits just like
wenzelm@5726
  2278
Addsimps. They can be removed via Delsplits just like
wenzelm@5726
  2279
Delsimps. Lower-case versions are also available.
wenzelm@5127
  2280
wenzelm@5726
  2281
* HOL/Simplifier: The rule split_if is now part of the default
wenzelm@5726
  2282
simpset. This means that the simplifier will eliminate all occurrences
wenzelm@5726
  2283
of if-then-else in the conclusion of a goal. To prevent this, you can
wenzelm@5726
  2284
either remove split_if completely from the default simpset by
wenzelm@5726
  2285
`Delsplits [split_if]' or remove it in a specific call of the
wenzelm@5726
  2286
simplifier using `... delsplits [split_if]'.  You can also add/delete
wenzelm@5726
  2287
other case splitting rules to/from the default simpset: every datatype
wenzelm@5726
  2288
generates suitable rules `split_t_case' and `split_t_case_asm' (where
wenzelm@5726
  2289
t is the name of the datatype).
wenzelm@5127
  2290
wenzelm@5726
  2291
* Classical reasoner / Simplifier combination: new force_tac (and
wenzelm@5127
  2292
derivatives Force_tac, force) combines rewriting and classical
wenzelm@5127
  2293
reasoning (and whatever other tools) similarly to auto_tac, but is
wenzelm@5726
  2294
aimed to solve the given subgoal completely.
wenzelm@5127
  2295
wenzelm@5127
  2296
wenzelm@5127
  2297
*** General ***
wenzelm@5127
  2298
wenzelm@5217
  2299
* new top-level commands `Goal' and `Goalw' that improve upon `goal'
wenzelm@5127
  2300
and `goalw': the theory is no longer needed as an explicit argument -
wenzelm@5127
  2301
the current theory context is used; assumptions are no longer returned
wenzelm@5127
  2302
at the ML-level unless one of them starts with ==> or !!; it is
wenzelm@5217
  2303
recommended to convert to these new commands using isatool fixgoal
wenzelm@5217
  2304
(backup your sources first!);
wenzelm@4842
  2305
wenzelm@5217
  2306
* new top-level commands 'thm' and 'thms' for retrieving theorems from
wenzelm@5207
  2307
the current theory context, and 'theory' to lookup stored theories;
paulson@4806
  2308
paulson@5722
  2309
* new theory section 'locale' for declaring constants, assumptions and
paulson@5722
  2310
definitions that have local scope;
paulson@5722
  2311
wenzelm@5127
  2312
* new theory section 'nonterminals' for purely syntactic types;
wenzelm@4858
  2313
wenzelm@5127
  2314
* new theory section 'setup' for generic ML setup functions
wenzelm@5127
  2315
(e.g. package initialization);
wenzelm@4869
  2316
wenzelm@5131
  2317
* the distribution now includes Isabelle icons: see
wenzelm@5131
  2318
lib/logo/isabelle-{small,tiny}.xpm;
wenzelm@5131
  2319
wenzelm@5363
  2320
* isatool install - install binaries with absolute references to
wenzelm@5363
  2321
ISABELLE_HOME/bin;
wenzelm@5363
  2322
wenzelm@5572
  2323
* isatool logo -- create instances of the Isabelle logo (as EPS);
wenzelm@5572
  2324
wenzelm@5407
  2325
* print mode 'emacs' reserved for Isamode;
wenzelm@5407
  2326
wenzelm@5726
  2327
* support multiple print (ast) translations per constant name;
wenzelm@5726
  2328
wenzelm@6925
  2329
* theorems involving oracles are now printed with a suffixed [!];
wenzelm@6925
  2330
wenzelm@4711
  2331
paulson@4661
  2332
*** HOL ***
paulson@4661
  2333
wenzelm@5710
  2334
* there is now a tutorial on Isabelle/HOL (do 'isatool doc tutorial');
nipkow@5709
  2335
wenzelm@5217
  2336
* HOL/inductive package reorganized and improved: now supports mutual
paulson@5267
  2337
definitions such as
wenzelm@5217
  2338
wenzelm@5217
  2339
  inductive EVEN ODD
wenzelm@5217
  2340
    intrs
wenzelm@5217
  2341
      null "0 : EVEN"
wenzelm@5217
  2342
      oddI "n : EVEN ==> Suc n : ODD"
wenzelm@5217
  2343
      evenI "n : ODD ==> Suc n : EVEN"
wenzelm@5217
  2344
wenzelm@5217
  2345
new theorem list "elims" contains an elimination rule for each of the
wenzelm@5217
  2346
recursive sets; inductive definitions now handle disjunctive premises
wenzelm@5217
  2347
correctly (also ZF);
berghofe@5214
  2348
wenzelm@5217
  2349
INCOMPATIBILITIES: requires Inductive as an ancestor; component
wenzelm@5217
  2350
"mutual_induct" no longer exists - the induction rule is always
wenzelm@5217
  2351
contained in "induct";
wenzelm@5217
  2352
wenzelm@5217
  2353
wenzelm@5217
  2354
* HOL/datatype package re-implemented and greatly improved: now
paulson@5267
  2355
supports mutually recursive datatypes such as
wenzelm@5217
  2356
wenzelm@5217
  2357
  datatype
wenzelm@5217
  2358
    'a aexp = IF_THEN_ELSE ('a bexp) ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
  2359
            | SUM ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
  2360
            | DIFF ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
  2361
            | NUM 'a
wenzelm@5217
  2362
  and
wenzelm@5217
  2363
    'a bexp = LESS ('a aexp) ('a aexp)
wenzelm@5217
  2364
            | AND ('a bexp) ('a bexp)
wenzelm@5217
  2365
            | OR ('a bexp) ('a bexp)
wenzelm@5217
  2366
paulson@5267
  2367
as well as indirectly recursive datatypes such as
berghofe@5214
  2368
wenzelm@5217
  2369
  datatype
wenzelm@5217
  2370
    ('a, 'b) term = Var 'a
wenzelm@5217
  2371
                  | App 'b ((('a, 'b) term) list)
berghofe@5214
  2372
wenzelm@5217
  2373
The new tactic  mutual_induct_tac [<var_1>, ..., <var_n>] i  performs
wenzelm@5217
  2374
induction on mutually / indirectly recursive datatypes.
wenzelm@5217
  2375
wenzelm@5217
  2376
Primrec equations are now stored in theory and can be accessed via
wenzelm@5217
  2377
<function_name>.simps.
wenzelm@5217
  2378
wenzelm@5217
  2379
INCOMPATIBILITIES:
berghofe@5214
  2380
wenzelm@5217
  2381
  - Theories using datatypes must now have theory Datatype as an
wenzelm@5217
  2382
    ancestor.
wenzelm@5217
  2383
  - The specific <typename>.induct_tac no longer exists - use the
wenzelm@5217
  2384
    generic induct_tac instead.
berghofe@5226
  2385
  - natE has been renamed to nat.exhaust - use exhaust_tac
wenzelm@5217
  2386
    instead of res_inst_tac ... natE. Note that the variable
berghofe@5226
  2387
    names in nat.exhaust differ from the names in natE, this
wenzelm@5217
  2388
    may cause some "fragile" proofs to fail.
wenzelm@5217
  2389
  - The theorems split_<typename>_case and split_<typename>_case_asm
wenzelm@5217
  2390
    have been renamed to <typename>.split and <typename>.split_asm.
wenzelm@5217
  2391
  - Since default sorts of type variables are now handled correctly,
wenzelm@5217
  2392
    some datatype definitions may have to be annotated with explicit
wenzelm@5217
  2393
    sort constraints.
wenzelm@5217
  2394
  - Primrec definitions no longer require function name and type
wenzelm@5217
  2395
    of recursive argument.
berghofe@5214
  2396
wenzelm@5217
  2397
Consider using isatool fixdatatype to adapt your theories and proof
wenzelm@5217
  2398
scripts to the new package (backup your sources first!).
wenzelm@5217
  2399
wenzelm@5217
  2400
wenzelm@5726
  2401
* HOL/record package: considerably improved implementation; now
wenzelm@5726
  2402
includes concrete syntax for record types, terms, updates; theorems
wenzelm@5726
  2403
for surjective pairing and splitting !!-bound record variables; proof
wenzelm@5726
  2404
support is as follows:
wenzelm@5726
  2405
wenzelm@5726
  2406
  1) standard conversions (selectors or updates applied to record
wenzelm@5726
  2407
constructor terms) are part of the standard simpset;
wenzelm@5726
  2408
wenzelm@5726
  2409
  2) inject equations of the form ((x, y) = (x', y')) == x=x' & y=y' are
wenzelm@5726
  2410
made part of standard simpset and claset via addIffs;
wenzelm@5726
  2411
wenzelm@5726
  2412
  3) a tactic for record field splitting (record_split_tac) is part of
wenzelm@5726
  2413
the standard claset (addSWrapper);
wenzelm@5726
  2414
wenzelm@5726
  2415
To get a better idea about these rules you may retrieve them via
wenzelm@5726
  2416
something like 'thms "foo.simps"' or 'thms "foo.iffs"', where "foo" is
wenzelm@5726
  2417
the name of your record type.
wenzelm@5726
  2418
wenzelm@5726
  2419
The split tactic 3) conceptually simplifies by the following rule:
wenzelm@5726
  2420
wenzelm@5726
  2421
  "(!!x. PROP ?P x) == (!!a b. PROP ?P (a, b))"
wenzelm@5726
  2422
wenzelm@5726
  2423
Thus any record variable that is bound by meta-all will automatically
wenzelm@5726
  2424
blow up into some record constructor term, consequently the
wenzelm@5726
  2425
simplifications of 1), 2) apply.  Thus force_tac, auto_tac etc. shall
wenzelm@5726
  2426
solve record problems automatically.
wenzelm@5726
  2427
berghofe@5214
  2428
wenzelm@5125
  2429
* reorganized the main HOL image: HOL/Integ and String loaded by
wenzelm@5125
  2430
default; theory Main includes everything;
wenzelm@5125
  2431
paulson@5650
  2432
* automatic simplification of integer sums and comparisons, using cancellation;
paulson@5650
  2433
oheimb@5526
  2434
* added option_map_eq_Some and not_Some_eq to the default simpset and claset;
wenzelm@5127
  2435
wenzelm@5127
  2436
* added disj_not1 = "(~P | Q) = (P --> Q)" to the default simpset;
wenzelm@5127
  2437
wenzelm@5127
  2438
* many new identities for unions, intersections, set difference, etc.;
wenzelm@5127
  2439
wenzelm@5127
  2440
* expand_if, expand_split, expand_sum_case and expand_nat_case are now
wenzelm@5127
  2441
called split_if, split_split, split_sum_case and split_nat_case (to go
wenzelm@5127
  2442
with add/delsplits);
wenzelm@5125
  2443
wenzelm@5127
  2444
* HOL/Prod introduces simplification procedure unit_eq_proc rewriting
wenzelm@5127
  2445
(?x::unit) = (); this is made part of the default simpset, which COULD
wenzelm@5127
  2446
MAKE EXISTING PROOFS FAIL under rare circumstances (consider
wenzelm@5207
  2447
'Delsimprocs [unit_eq_proc];' as last resort); also note that
wenzelm@5207
  2448
unit_abs_eta_conv is added in order to counter the effect of
wenzelm@5207
  2449
unit_eq_proc on (%u::unit. f u), replacing it by f rather than by
wenzelm@5207
  2450
%u.f();
wenzelm@5125
  2451
wenzelm@5217
  2452
* HOL/Fun INCOMPATIBILITY: `inj_onto' is now called `inj_on' (which
wenzelm@5217
  2453
makes more sense);
berghofe@5109
  2454
paulson@5475
  2455
* HOL/Set INCOMPATIBILITY: rule `equals0D' is now a well-formed destruct rule;
paulson@5475
  2456
  It and 'sym RS equals0D' are now in the default  claset, giving automatic
paulson@5475
  2457
  disjointness reasoning but breaking a few old proofs.
paulson@5267
  2458
wenzelm@5217
  2459
* HOL/Relation INCOMPATIBILITY: renamed the relational operator r^-1
wenzelm@5217
  2460
to 'converse' from 'inverse' (for compatibility with ZF and some
wenzelm@5217
  2461
literature);
wenzelm@5085
  2462
wenzelm@5127
  2463
* HOL/recdef can now declare non-recursive functions, with {} supplied as
wenzelm@5127
  2464
the well-founded relation;
oheimb@4838
  2465

* HOL/Set INCOMPATIBILITY: the complement of set A is now written -A instead of
paulson@5490
  2467
    Compl A.  The "Compl" syntax remains available as input syntax for this
paulson@5490
  2468
    release ONLY.

* HOL/Update: new theory of function updates:
wenzelm@5127
  2471
    f(a:=b) == %x. if x=a then b else f x
wenzelm@5127
  2472
may also be iterated as in f(a:=b,c:=d,...);

* HOL/Vimage: new theory for inverse image of a function, syntax f-``B;
paulson@4899
  2475
nipkow@5282
  2476
* HOL/List:
nipkow@5282
  2477
  - new function list_update written xs[i:=v] that updates the i-th
nipkow@5282
  2478
    list position. May also be iterated as in xs[i:=a,j:=b,...].
nipkow@5428
  2479
  - new function `upt' written [i..j(] which generates the list
nipkow@5428
  2480
    [i,i+1,...,j-1], i.e. the upper bound is excluded. To include the upper
nipkow@5428
  2481
    bound write [i..j], which is a shorthand for [i..j+1(].
nipkow@5282
  2482
  - new lexicographic orderings and corresponding wellfoundedness theorems.
paulson@4779
  2483
wenzelm@5127
  2484
* HOL/Arith:
wenzelm@5127
  2485
  - removed 'pred' (predecessor) function;
wenzelm@5127
  2486
  - generalized some theorems about n-1;
wenzelm@5127
  2487
  - many new laws about "div" and "mod";
wenzelm@5127
  2488
  - new laws about greatest common divisors (see theory ex/Primes);
oheimb@4766
  2489
wenzelm@5127
  2490
* HOL/Relation: renamed the relational operator r^-1 "converse"
wenzelm@4842
  2491
instead of "inverse";
wenzelm@4711
  2492
nipkow@5651
  2493
* HOL/Induct/Multiset: a theory of multisets, including the wellfoundedness
nipkow@5651
  2494
  of the multiset ordering;
nipkow@5651
  2495
wenzelm@5127
  2496
* directory HOL/Real: a construction of the reals using Dedekind cuts
nipkow@5651
  2497
  (not included by default);
nipkow@4835
  2498
wenzelm@5127
  2499
* directory HOL/UNITY: Chandy and Misra's UNITY formalism;
wenzelm@4711
  2500
nipkow@5651
  2501
* directory HOL/Hoare: a new version of Hoare logic which permits many-sorted
nipkow@5651
  2502
  programs, i.e. different program variables may have different types.
nipkow@5651

* calling (stac rew i) now fails if "rew" has no effect on the goal
paulson@5142
  2505
  [previously, this check worked only if the rewrite rule was unconditional]
paulson@5308
  2506
  Now rew can involve either definitions or equalities (either == or =).

  2510
paulson@5332
  2511
* theory Main includes everything; INCOMPATIBILITY: theory ZF.thy contains
paulson@5332
  2512
  only the theorems proved on ZF.ML;
paulson@5160
  2513
paulson@5475
  2514
* ZF INCOMPATIBILITY: rule `equals0D' is now a well-formed destruct rule;
paulson@5475
  2515
  It and 'sym RS equals0D' are now in the default  claset, giving automatic
paulson@5475
  2516
  disjointness reasoning but breaking a few old proofs.
paulson@5267
  2517
paulson@5160
  2518
* ZF/Update: new theory of function updates
paulson@5160
  2519
    with default rewrite rule  f(x:=y) ` z = if(z=x, y, f`z)
paulson@5160
  2520
  may also be iterated as in f(a:=b,c:=d,...);
paulson@5160
  2521

wenzelm@5251
  2534
* Pure: several new basic modules made available for general use, see
wenzelm@5251
  2535
also src/Pure/README;
wenzelm@5207
  2536
wenzelm@5008
  2537
* improved the theory data mechanism to support encapsulation (data
wenzelm@5008
  2538
kind name replaced by private Object.kind, acting as authorization
wenzelm@5373
  2539
key); new type-safe user interface via functor TheoryDataFun; generic
wenzelm@5373
  2540
print_data function becomes basically useless;
wenzelm@5002
  2541
wenzelm@5251
  2542
* removed global_names compatibility flag -- all theory declarations
wenzelm@5251
  2543
are qualified by default;
wenzelm@5251
  2544
wenzelm@5085
  2545
* module Pure/Syntax now offers quote / antiquote translation
wenzelm@5085
  2546
functions (useful for Hoare logic etc. with implicit dependencies);
wenzelm@5373
  2547
see HOL/ex/Antiquote for an example use;
wenzelm@5085
  2548
wenzelm@5127
  2549
* Simplifier now offers conversions (asm_)(full_)rewrite: simpset ->
wenzelm@5127
  2550
cterm -> thm;
wenzelm@5127
  2551
wenzelm@5207
  2552
* new tactical CHANGED_GOAL for checking that a tactic modifies a
wenzelm@5207
  2553
subgoal;
paulson@5142
  2554
wenzelm@5251
  2555
* Display.print_goals function moved to Locale.print_goals;
wenzelm@5251
  2556
wenzelm@5731
  2557
* standard print function for goals supports current_goals_markers
wenzelm@5731
  2558
variable for marking begin of proof, end of proof, start of goal; the
wenzelm@5731
  2559
default is ("", "", ""); setting current_goals_markers := ("<proof>",
wenzelm@5731
  2560
"</proof>", "<goal>") causes SGML like tagged proof state printing,

*** Overview of INCOMPATIBILITIES (see below for more details) ***
wenzelm@4410
  2569
wenzelm@4410
  2570
* changed lexical syntax of terms / types: dots made part of long
wenzelm@4410
  2571
identifiers, e.g. "%x.x" no longer possible, should be "%x. x";
wenzelm@4410
  2572
wenzelm@4410
  2573
* simpset (and claset) reference variable replaced by functions
wenzelm@4410
  2574
simpset / simpset_ref;
wenzelm@4410
  2575
wenzelm@4410
  2576
* no longer supports theory aliases (via merge) and non-trivial
wenzelm@4410
  2577
implicit merge of thms' signatures;
wenzelm@4410
  2578
wenzelm@4410
  2579
* most internal names of constants changed due to qualified names;
wenzelm@4410
  2580
wenzelm@4410
  2581
* changed Pure/Sequence interface (see Pure/seq.ML);
wenzelm@4410
  2582
wenzelm@3454
  2583
paulson@3715
  2584
*** General Changes ***
paulson@3715
  2585
wenzelm@4174
  2586
* hierachically structured name spaces (for consts, types, axms, thms
wenzelm@3943
  2587
etc.); new lexical class 'longid' (e.g. Foo.bar.x) may render much of
wenzelm@4108
  2588
old input syntactically incorrect (e.g. "%x.x"); COMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@4108
  2589
isatool fixdots ensures space after dots (e.g. "%x. x"); set
wenzelm@4174
  2590
long_names for fully qualified output names; NOTE: ML programs
wenzelm@4174
  2591
(special tactics, packages etc.) referring to internal names may have
wenzelm@4174
  2592
to be adapted to cope with fully qualified names; in case of severe
wenzelm@4174
  2593
backward campatibility problems try setting 'global_names' at compile
wenzelm@4174
  2594
time to have enrything declared within a flat name space; one may also
wenzelm@4174
  2595
fine tune name declarations in theories via the 'global' and 'local'
wenzelm@4174
  2596
section;
wenzelm@4108
  2597
wenzelm@4108
  2598
* reimplemented the implicit simpset and claset using the new anytype
wenzelm@4108
  2599
data filed in signatures; references simpset:simpset ref etc. are
wenzelm@4108
  2600
replaced by functions simpset:unit->simpset and
wenzelm@4108
  2601
simpset_ref:unit->simpset ref; COMPATIBILITY: use isatool fixclasimp
wenzelm@4108
  2602
to patch your ML files accordingly;
paulson@3856
  2603
wenzelm@3857
  2604
* HTML output now includes theory graph data for display with Java
wenzelm@3857
  2605
applet or isatool browser; data generated automatically via isatool
wenzelm@3901
  2606
usedir (see -i option, ISABELLE_USEDIR_OPTIONS);
wenzelm@3857
  2607
paulson@3856
  2608
* defs may now be conditional; improved rewrite_goals_tac to handle
paulson@3856
  2609
conditional equations;
paulson@3856
  2610
wenzelm@4174
  2611
* defs now admits additional type arguments, using TYPE('a) syntax;
wenzelm@4174
  2612
wenzelm@3901
  2613
* theory aliases via merge (e.g. M=A+B+C) no longer supported, always
wenzelm@3901
  2614
creates a new theory node; implicit merge of thms' signatures is
wenzelm@4112
  2615
restricted to 'trivial' ones; COMPATIBILITY: one may have to use
wenzelm@3901
  2616
transfer:theory->thm->thm in (rare) cases;
wenzelm@3901
  2617
wenzelm@3968
  2618
* improved handling of draft signatures / theories; draft thms (and
wenzelm@3968
  2619
ctyps, cterms) are automatically promoted to real ones;
wenzelm@3968
  2620
wenzelm@3901
  2621
* slightly changed interfaces for oracles: admit many per theory, named
wenzelm@3901
  2622
(e.g. oracle foo = mlfun), additional name argument for invoke_oracle;
