Subject: Announcing Isabelle99-1
To: isabelle-users@cl.cam.ac.uk
-Isabelle99-1 is now available.
+Isabelle99-1 is now available. This release continues the line of
+Isabelle99, introducing numerous improvements, both internal and user
+visible.
+
+In particular, great care has been taken to improve robustness and
+ease use and installation of the complete Isabelle working
+environment, including the Proof General user interface support, WWW
+presentation of theories and the Isabelle document preparation system.
+
+The most prominent highlights of Isabelle99-1 are as follows.
+ * Isabelle/Isar improvements (Markus Wenzel)
+ o Support of tactic-emulation scripts for easy porting of legacy ML
+ scripts (see also the HOL/Lambda example).
+ o Better support for scalable verification tasks (manage large
+ contexts in induction, generalized existence reasoning etc.)
+ o Hindley-Milner polymorphism for proof texts.
+ o More robust document preparation, better LaTeX output due to
+ fake math-mode.
+ o Extended "Isabelle/Isar Reference Manual"
+ http://isabelle.in.tum.de/doc/isar-ref.pdf
-The most prominent highlights are:
+ * HOL/MicroJava (Gerwin Klein, Tobias Nipkow, David von Oheimb, and
+ Cornelia Pusch)
+ Formalization of a fragment of Java, together with a corresponding
+ virtual machine and a specification of its bytecode verifier and a
+ lightweight bytecode verifier, including proofs of type-safety.
+
+ * HOL/Real (Jacques Fleuriot)
+ More on nonstandard real analysis.
+
+ * HOL/Algebra (Clemens Ballarin)
+ Rings and univariate polynomials.
- *
+ * HOL/NumberTheory (Thomas Rasmussen)
+ Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic, Chinese Remainder Theorem,
+ Fermat/Euler Theorem, Wilson's Theorem.
+
+ * HOL/Lambda (Stefan Berghofer and Tobias Nipkow)
+ More on termination of simply-typed lambda-terms; converted into
+ an Isabelle/Isar tactic emulation script.
+
+ * HOL/Lattice (Markus Wenzel)
+ Lattices and orders in Isabelle/Isar.
+
+ * HOL/Isar_examples (Markus Wenzel)
+ More examples, including a formulation of Hoare Logic in Isabelle/Isar.
+
+ * HOL/Prolog (David von Oheimb)
+ A (bare-bones) implementation of Lambda-Prolog.
See the NEWS file distributed with Isabelle for more details.
