== 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
256
from Why versions 2.xx.
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
roadmap  
Andrei Paskevich committed
257 258

The home web page of Why3 is http://why3.gforge.inria.fr, where you
259
can find the source distribution and the manual. See the manual for
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
260 261
installation instructions and contact information.

MARCHE Claude's avatar

262
The main new features with respect to Why 2.xx are the following.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
263 264 265 266

1) Completely redesigned input syntax for logic declarations

* new syntax for terms and formulas
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
roadmap  
Andrei Paskevich committed
267 268 269
* enumerated and algebraic data types, pattern matching
* recursive definitions of logic functions and predicates,
  with termination checking
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
270
* inductive definitions of predicates
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
roadmap  
Andrei Paskevich committed
271 272
* declarations are structured in components called "theories",
  which can be reused and instantiated
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
273 274 275 276 277 278 279

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
280
3) Source code organized as a library with a documented API,
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
281
to allow access to Why3 features programmatically.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
282 283 284 285 286 287

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
288
* ability to edit proofs for interactive provers (Coq only for the moment)
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
289 290 291 292 293 294 295 296
  on any subtask

5) Extensible architecture via plugins

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

Andrei Paskevich committed
297
Beware that some Why features are not yet available in Why3:
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
298 299

* 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
302 303 304 305

* 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
306 307 308 309 310 311 312 313
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
322
from Why. The detailed announcement is attached below.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
323 324 325 326 327 328 329 330

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
331
and process the generated Why3 file "<file>.jessie/why/<file>_why3.why"
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
332 333 334 335 336 337 338
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
339
* ability to call Coq on a given VC to provide a proof script. Incidentally,
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
340
  this feature can be used to analyse the VC to understand why it is
341
  not proved automatically.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
342 343 344 345 346 347 348 349
* 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.
