----------------------- 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
169
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.

The main new features with respect to Why 2.xx are the following.

1) Completely redesigned input syntax for logic declarations

* new syntax for terms and formulas

181
182
* enumerated and algebraic data types, pattern matching
* recursive definitions of logic functions and predicates,
  with termination checking

183
* inductive definitions of predicates

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

3) Source code organized as a library with a documented API,
MARCHE Claude's avatar

194
to allow access to Why3 features programmatically.

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:

* There is a VC generator distributed in Why3 in an experimental stage

  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
215
216
217
218

* 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

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
235
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
252
* ability to call Coq on a given VC to provide a proof script. Incidentally,

  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.
