   un theorie et/ou un module réutilisable de lieurs
** (M2?) Stage Airbus, "TIP" avec Frama-C/Jessie ou WP/Why/Coq
   besoin du plugin Coq? 

* PRIORITAIRE, JCF et ANDREI, clone de module
** demarche: ecrire une API avec smart constructors garantissant
   le bon typage, et clone sera en premier lieu un de ces constructors
** cas d'utilisation: range d'entiers de Jessie, Flottants -> double ou single
   containeurs pour Adacore et Claire

* extraction vers Caml
** PRIORITAIRE, JCF, ANDREI, besoin pour cours aux JFLA en janvier 2012

* FRANCOIS new tools
** merge why3html and why3stats into a new executable why3report
** move -latex from why3replayer to why3report
** document why3report


* CLAUDE provers
** fix support for newer Z3, CVC3 and Alt-Ergo, allow several version
  of them at the same time. Allow why3config --detect to find e.g z3
  under names like z3-3.2 (how ? command-line option ? e.g. -p z3 /usr/local/bin/z3-3.2)
** Ensure that we kill a prover after some time (ressurect %T ? with a
   meaning like twice the value of %t ?), because we cannot be sure they always
   honor their own -timeout option.

----------------------- 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
348
from Why versions 2.xx.
Andrei Paskevich's avatar

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
MARCHE Claude's avatar

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
355 356 357 358

1) Completely redesigned input syntax for logic declarations

* new syntax for terms and formulas
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
359 360 361
* enumerated and algebraic data types, pattern matching
* recursive definitions of logic functions and predicates,
  with termination checking
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
362
* inductive definitions of predicates
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
363 364
* declarations are structured in components called "theories",
  which can be reused and instantiated
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
365 366 367 368 369 370 371

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
372
3) Source code organized as a library with a documented API,
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
373
to allow access to Why3 features programmatically.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
374 375 376 377 378 379

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
380
* ability to edit proofs for interactive provers (Coq only for the moment)
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
381 382 383 384 385 386 387 388
  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
389
Beware that some Why features are not yet available in Why3:
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
390 391

* There is a VC generator distributed in Why3 in an experimental stage
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
392 393
  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
394 395 396 397

* 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
398 399 400 401 402 403 404 405
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
414
from Why. The detailed announcement is attached below.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
415 416 417 418 419 420 421 422

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
423
and process the generated Why3 file "<file>.jessie/why/<file>_why3.why"
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
424 425 426 427 428 429 430
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
431
* ability to call Coq on a given VC to provide a proof script. Incidentally,
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
432
  this feature can be used to analyse the VC to understand why it is
433
  not proved automatically.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
434 435 436 437 438 439 440 441
* 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.
