----------------------- 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

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

The main new features with respect to Why 2.xx are the following.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
251 252 253 254

1) Completely redesigned input syntax for logic declarations

* new syntax for terms and formulas
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
roadmap  
Andrei Paskevich committed
255 256 257
* enumerated and algebraic data types, pattern matching
* recursive definitions of logic functions and predicates,
  with termination checking
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
258
* inductive definitions of predicates
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
roadmap  
Andrei Paskevich committed
259 260
* declarations are structured in components called "theories",
  which can be reused and instantiated
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
261 262 263 264 265 266 267

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
268
3) Source code organized as a library with a documented API,
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
269
to allow access to Why3 features programmatically.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
270 271 272 273 274 275

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
276
* ability to edit proofs for interactive provers (Coq only for the moment)
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
277 278 279 280 281 282 283 284
  on any subtask

5) Extensible architecture via plugins

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

285
Beware that some Why features are not yet available in Why3:
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
286 287

* There is a VC generator distributed in Why3 in an experimental stage
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
roadmap  
Andrei Paskevich committed
288 289
  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
290 291 292 293

* 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 committed
294 295 296 297 298 299 300 301
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
310
from Why. The detailed announcement is attached below.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
311 312 313 314 315 316 317 318

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
319
and process the generated Why3 file "<file>.jessie/why/<file>_why3.why"
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
320 321 322 323 324 325 326
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
327
* ability to call Coq on a given VC to provide a proof script. Incidentally,
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
328
  this feature can be used to analyse the VC to understand why it is
329
  not proved automatically.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
330 331 332 333 334 335 336 337
* 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.
