** fix support for newer Z3, CVC3 and Alt-Ergo, allow several version
  of them at the same time. Allow why3config --detect to find e.g z3
  under names like z3-3.2 (how ? command-line option ? e.g. -p z3 /usr/local/bin/z3-3.2)
** Ensure that we kill a prover after some time (ressurect %T ? with a
   meaning like twice the value of %t ?), because we cannot be sure they always
   honor their own -timeout option.

** fix CVC3 printer: prints predicate def using LAMBDA

----------------------- Why-discuss list ---------------------------

We are happy to announce the first public release of Why3, also known
as the Why platform next generation. It is a new project, independent
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
356
from Why versions 2.xx.
Andrei Paskevich's avatar

The home web page of Why3 is http://why3.gforge.inria.fr, where you

The main new features with respect to Why 2.xx are the following.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
363 364 365 366

1) Completely redesigned input syntax for logic declarations

* new syntax for terms and formulas
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
367 368 369
* enumerated and algebraic data types, pattern matching
* recursive definitions of logic functions and predicates,
  with termination checking
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
370
* inductive definitions of predicates
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
371 372
* declarations are structured in components called "theories",
  which can be reused and instantiated
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
373 374 375 376 377 378 379

2) More generic handling of goals and lemmas to prove

* concept of proof task
* generic concept of task transformation
* generic approach for communicating with external provers

Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
380
3) Source code organized as a library with a documented API,
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
381
to allow access to Why3 features programmatically.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
382 383 384 385 386 387

4) GUI with new features w.r.t. the former GWhy

* session save and restore
* prover calls in parallel
* splitting, and more generally applying task transformations, on demand
388
* ability to edit proofs for interactive provers (Coq only for the moment)
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
389 390 391 392 393 394 395 396
  on any subtask

5) Extensible architecture via plugins

* users can define new transformations
* users can add connections to additional provers


Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
397
Beware that some Why features are not yet available in Why3:
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
398 399

* There is a VC generator distributed in Why3 in an experimental stage
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed

  and intentionally undocumented in the current documentation (the input
  syntax for programs may change a lot in the future).
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
402 403 404 405

* There is no front-end for other languages like C or Java. However,
  the last release Why 2.28 is able to use Why3 as a back-end

MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
406 407 408 409 410 411 412 413
Notice that Why3 is expected to replace Why2 in the future. As such,
it is the project where improvements and new features will be
implemented. As this is the first public release of Why3, it is likely
that missing features, and possibly bugs, will raise soon. Please
report those in the bug tracker, we will do our best to fix them and
provide new releases in a short time.

--------------------- Frama-C list ----------------------------


The first release of Why3, also known as the Why platform next
generation, is publicly available. Why3 is a new project, independent
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
422
from Why. The detailed announcement is attached below.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
423 424 425 426 427 428 429 430

The Jessie plugin of the Why release 2.28 has the ability to use Why3
as back-end. You must install both Why 2.28 and Why3 for this to work.

Using the Why3 GUI on a C file is done as follows
  frama-c -jessie -jessie-atp why3ide <file>.c
(You can also run it in batch mode using
  frama-c -jessie -jessie-atp why3 <file>.c
431
and process the generated Why3 file "<file>.jessie/why/<file>_why3.why"
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
432 433 434 435 436 437 438
with Why3 batch tools).

The main new features of interest in the GUI are

* new provers available
* calling provers in parallel
* splitting on demand
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
439
* ability to call Coq on a given VC to provide a proof script. Incidentally,
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
440
  this feature can be used to analyse the VC to understand why it is
441
  not proved automatically.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
442 443 444 445 446 447 448 449
* proof session saved and restored at startup

Any question, remark or bug report concerning only Why3 should be done
