== 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
222
from Why versions 2.xx.
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
223 224

The home web page of Why3 is http://why3.gforge.inria.fr, where you
225
can find the source distribution and the manual. See the manual for
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
226 227
installation instructions and contact information.

MARCHE Claude's avatar

228
The main new features with respect to Why 2.xx are the following.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
229 230 231 232

1) Completely redesigned input syntax for logic declarations

* new syntax for terms and formulas
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
233 234 235
* enumerated and algebraic data types, pattern matching
* recursive definitions of logic functions and predicates,
  with termination checking
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
236
* inductive definitions of predicates
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
237 238
* declarations are structured in components called "theories",
  which can be reused and instantiated
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
239 240 241 242 243 244 245

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
246
3) Source code organized as a library with a documented API,
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
247
to allow access to Why3 features programmatically.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
248 249 250 251 252 253

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
254
* ability to edit proofs for interactive provers (Coq only for the moment)
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
255 256 257 258 259 260 261 262
  on any subtask

5) Extensible architecture via plugins

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


Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
263
Beware that some Why features are not yet available in Why3:
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
264 265

* There is a VC generator distributed in Why3 in an experimental stage
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
266 267
  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
268 269 270 271

* 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
272 273 274 275 276 277 278 279
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
288
from Why. The detailed announcement is attached below.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
289 290 291 292 293 294 295 296

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
297
and process the generated Why3 file "<file>.jessie/why/<file>_why3.why"
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
298 299 300 301 302 303 304
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
305
* ability to call Coq on a given VC to provide a proof script. Incidentally,
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
306
  this feature can be used to analyse the VC to understand why it is
307
  not proved automatically.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
308 309 310 311 312 313 314 315
* 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.
