             the user
  ** generally speaking, we should rethink the design of that .why.conf: avoid
     absolute paths,
     Partially done - libdir, datadir, loadpath, ... are not written in 
     why.conf if they correspond to the default value.

== Mails announcement ==

----------------------- 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
142
from Why versions 2.xx.
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
143 144

The home web page of Why3 is http://why3.gforge.inria.fr, where you
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
145 146 147
can find the source distribution and the manual. See the manual for 
installation instructions and contact information.

The main new features with respect to Why 2.xx are the following.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
149 150 151 152

1) Completely redesigned input syntax for logic declarations

* new syntax for terms and formulas
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
153 154 155
* enumerated and algebraic data types, pattern matching
* recursive definitions of logic functions and predicates,
  with termination checking
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
156
* inductive definitions of predicates
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
157 158
* declarations are structured in components called "theories",
  which can be reused and instantiated
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
159 160 161 162 163 164 165

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
166
3) Source code organized as a library with a documented API,
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
167
to allow access to Why3 features programmatically.

168 169 170 171 172 173 174 175 176 177 178 179 180 181 182

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
* ability to edit proofs for interactive provers (Coq only for the moment) 
  on any subtask

5) Extensible architecture via plugins

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

Beware that some Why features are not yet available in Why3:
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
184 185

* There is a VC generator distributed in Why3 in an experimental stage
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
186 187
  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
188 189 190 191

* 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
192 193 194 195 196 197 198 199
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
208
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
and process the generated Why3 file "<file>.jessie/why/<file>_why3.why" 
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
225
* ability to call Coq on a given VC to provide a proof script. Incidentally,
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
226 227 228 229 230 231 232 233 234 235
  this feature can be used to analyse the VC to understand why it is
  not proved automatically.  
* 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.
