Language
  o two new forms of type declarations: integer range types and
    floating-point types. To denote constants in such types, integer
    constants and real constants can be cast to such types. This
    support is exploited in drivers for provers that support bitvector
    theories (CVC4, Z3) and floating-point theory (Z3).

  * a quote character (') inside an identifier must either be at the
    end, or be followed by either a digit, the underscore character
    (_) or another quote. Identifiers with a quote followed by a
    letter are reserved.

    More details in the manual, section 10.6 "Proof Strategies".
  o counterexamples: better support for array values, support for
    floating-point values, support for Z3 in addition to CVC4.
    More details in the manual, section 6.3.5 "Displaying Counterexamples".

transformations
  * fix a soundness bug in "compute_in_goal" regarding the handling of
    logical implication.
  o several improvements to "compute_in_goal":
    . left-hand side of rewrite rules can be any symbols, not only
      non-interpreted ones.
219 220
    . perform beta-reduction when possible

proof sessions
  o session files are split in two parts: "why3session.xml" and
    "why3shapes". The latter file contains the checksums and the shapes
    for the goals. That second file is not strictly needed for
    replaying a proof session, it is only useful when input programs
    are modified, to track obsolete goals. If Why3 is compiled with
    compression support (provided by ocamlzip library) then files for
    shapes are compressed into why3shapes.gz.

    array.ArraySorted is now generic, with type and order relation parameters

  * reduced amount of "use export" in the standard library: theories
    now only export the symbols they define. Users may need to insert more
    "use import" in their theories (typically int.Int, option.Option,
    list.List, etc.).

  * [whyml] every exception raised in a function must be listed
    in as "raises { ... }" clause. A postcondition may be omitted
    and equals to "true" by default.
  * [whyml] if a function definition contains a "writes { ... }"
    clause, then every write effect must be listed. If a function
    definition contains a "reads { ... }" clause, then every read
    _and_ write effect must be listed.
  * [drivers] syntax rules, metas, and preludes are inherited
    through cloning. Keyword "cloned" becomes unnecessary and
    is not accepted anymore.

  o [TPTP] new parser for TPTP files with support for the newest
    TFA1 format (TPTP with polymorphic types and arithmetic)
  o [API] Dtype declaration kind is split into two: Dtype for
    declarations of a single abstract type or type alias, and
    Ddata for a list of (mutually recursive) algebraic types.
    Similarly, Dlogic declaration kind is split into Dparam for
    a single abstract function/predicate symbol and Dlogic for
    a list of (mutually recursive) defined symbols.

==========================

  New features

  o [WhyML] language and VC generator
  o [syntax] record types
    - introduced with syntax "type t = {| a:int; b:bool |}"
      actually syntactic sugar for "type t = `mk t' (a:int) (b:bool)"
      i.e. an algebraic with one constructor and projection functions
    - a record expression is written {| a = 1; b = True |}

475 476 477
    - access to field a with syntax x.a
    - update with syntax {| x with b = False |}
    - record patterns

  o new tool why3replayer: batch replay of a Why3 session created in IDE

480 481 482 483 484 485

  Fixes and other changes

  * [syntax] new syntax for conjunction (/\) and disjunction (\/)
    ("and" and "or" do not exist anymore)
  * [syntax] "logic" is not a keyword anymore, use "function" and "predicate"
486 487
  o [IDE] interactive detection of provers disabled because incompatible
    with session. Detection must be done with why3config --detect-provers

  o [IDE] dropped dependence on Sqlite3
494 495 496 497 498 499 500
  o [Alt-Ergo output] bugfix: no triggers for "exists" quantifier
  o [Coq output] bugfix: polymorphic inductive predicates
  o [Coq output] fixed bug 12934: type def with several type params
  * [API] functions to create an environment are now exported from Env
  * [API] calls to prover can now be asynchronous
    Driver.prove_task now returns some intermediate value
    (of type prover_call), which can be queried in two ways:
501 502 503 504
    - blocking way with Call_provers.wait_on_call
    - non-blocking way with Call_provers.query_call
    So old code performing "prove_task t () ()" should be translated to
    "wait_on_call (prove_task t ()) ()".
