=== Roadmap for fourth release ========================

* Coq plugin

* Coq realization of theories
  (Andrei)

* prover support
** avoid bug of CVC3, e.g in examples/my_cosine.why
** test/debug TPTP output, make Vampire work
** understand bug reports 12792-12794 and 12907

* IDE:
** edition, navigation (partially done)
** restore provers detection in the middle of a session.
  + todo: run detection immediately at start up if conf file absent or
    outdated
** reimplement "hide proved goals" feature
  + suggested solution: replace model + filter_model by a custom model
  (JC + ?)
** saving session
   * add a "cancel" choice in the "ask" window
   * add "ctrl-S" to save the session explicitly
     (partially done, but no shortcut)

* replayer: don't replay a goal that has changed, just display as an
  unsuccessful replay

* DONE reload: improve matching of new and old goals by use a kind a distance
  between some notion of shape of a goal

----------------------- 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 main new features with respect to Why 2.xx are the following.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
278
279
280
281

1) Completely redesigned input syntax for logic declarations

* new syntax for terms and formulas
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
roadmap    
Andrei Paskevich committed
282
283
284
* enumerated and algebraic data types, pattern matching
* recursive definitions of logic functions and predicates,
  with termination checking
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
285
* inductive definitions of predicates
Andrei Paskevich's avatar

* declarations are structured in components called "theories",
  which can be reused and instantiated

289
290
291
292
293
294

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
295
3) Source code organized as a library with a documented API,
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
296
to allow access to Why3 features programmatically.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
297
298
299
300
301
302

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
303
* ability to edit proofs for interactive provers (Coq only for the moment)

304
305
306

  on any subtask

5) Extensible architecture via plugins

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

Andrei Paskevich committed
312
Beware that some Why features are not yet available in Why3:
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
313
314

* There is a VC generator distributed in Why3 in an experimental stage
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
roadmap    
Andrei Paskevich committed
315
316
  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
317
318
319
320

* 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

323
324
325
326
327
328
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
337
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
346
and process the generated Why3 file "<file>.jessie/why/<file>_why3.why"
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
347
348
349
350
351
352
353
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
354
* ability to call Coq on a given VC to provide a proof script. Incidentally,
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
355
  this feature can be used to analyse the VC to understand why it is
356
  not proved automatically.

358
359

* 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.
