----------------------- 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
237
from Why versions 2.xx.

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

can find the source distribution and the manual. See the manual for

installation instructions and contact information.

MARCHE Claude's avatar

243
The main new features with respect to Why 2.xx are the following.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
244
245
246
247

1) Completely redesigned input syntax for logic declarations

* new syntax for terms and formulas
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
roadmap    
Andrei Paskevich committed
248
249
250
* enumerated and algebraic data types, pattern matching
* recursive definitions of logic functions and predicates,
  with termination checking
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
251
* inductive definitions of predicates
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
roadmap    
Andrei Paskevich committed
252
253
* declarations are structured in components called "theories",
  which can be reused and instantiated

255
256
257
258
259
260

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
roadmap    
Andrei Paskevich committed
261
3) Source code organized as a library with a documented API,
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
262
to allow access to Why3 features programmatically.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
263
264
265
266
267
268

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
269
* ability to edit proofs for interactive provers (Coq only for the moment)

272

  on any subtask

5) Extensible architecture via plugins

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

278
Beware that some Why features are not yet available in Why3:
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
279
280

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

  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
283
284
285
286

* 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

292
293
294
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
303
from Why. The detailed announcement is attached below.

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
312
and process the generated Why3 file "<file>.jessie/why/<file>_why3.why"
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
313

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
320
* ability to call Coq on a given VC to provide a proof script. Incidentally,
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
321
  this feature can be used to analyse the VC to understand why it is
322
  not proved automatically.

325

* proof session saved and restored at startup

Any question, remark or bug report concerning only Why3 should be done
using the Why3 public discussion list and bug tracker.
