* Add more examples in the regression tests and in the proval gallery

* A literate programming tool for Why3 (JCF)


* IDE:
 - edition, navigation (partially done)

 - reimplement "hide proved goals" feature
  + suggested solution: replace model + filter_model by a custom model
  (JC + ?)
 - restore provers detection in the middle of a session.
 - commentaires dans les sessions, attachés a chaque ligne

==================== Roadmap for release 0.91 ========================

HighOrd: Coq output and OCaml extraction should produce lambda's from lambda's
and no epsilon

* terminaison
** generer une obligation de preuve de well-foundedness quand on utilise
   un variant avec "with R" (une seule fois pour chaque R !)
** quand une definition logique recursive ne peut pas etre verifiee
   bien-fondee statiquement, generer une obligation de preuve
   (feature wish de F Besson)

* Coq tactic
** ajout de bases de hint

* replayer
** deplacer option -bench dans une commande de why3session

* IDE
** todo: run detection immediately at start up if conf file absent or
    outdated. should become doable with the new Session module
** "detect provers" menu

* Contre-exemples de Alt-Ergo

* detect editors
*** check if coqide and also emacs/proof-general is installed

==================== Roadmap for release 0.81 ========================

released on March 25th, 2013

== New Features to announce ==

  o [logic] accept type expressions in clone substitutions
  o [whyml] support for relation chains (e.g., "e1 = e2 < e3")
  * [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 [why3ide] allow several files on the command-line
  o [ocaml API] incompatible changes in Set/Map/Hashtbl modules
  o [ocaml API] examples in the manual extended to API for Why3ml programs
  o [stdlib] fixed inconsistency in map.MapPermut theory
  o [prover] fixed Coq 8.4 support for theory real.Trigonometry
  o [prover] support for Gappa up to 0.16.6
  o [prover] support for Z3 4.2, 4.3.*
  o [prover] support for Alt-Ergo 0.95.1
  o [prover] support for CVC4
  o [prover] support for PVS 6
  o [prover] experimental support for mathematica
  o [prover] experimental support for MathSAT5
  o [examples] several new examples, including solutions to the
    VerifyThis@fm2012 challenges

==================== Roadmap for release 0.73 ========================

== New Features to announce ==

New features:
  o [Why3ml] new construct "abstract e { q }"
  o [Coq output] default tactic is now "intros ..." with a pattern
    that matches the structure of the goal
  o [why3replayer] option -obsolete-only

  o co-inductive predicates

    split tables in parts
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
695 696 697 698
  o [Sessions] a small change in the format. This hopefully improves
    the association of old goals and new goals when the input is
    modified.  For compatibility, Why3 is still able to read session
    files in the old format.
699
  o [Provers] support for Z3 4.0

Bug fix:
  o completed support for the "Out Of Memory" prover result
  o [Coq output] quotes in identifiers remain quotes in Coq
  o workaround for a bug about modulo operator in Alt-Ergo 0.94
  o fixed a consistency issue with set.Fset theory

----------------------- 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
1128
from Why versions 2.xx.

Andrei Paskevich committed

The home web page of Why3 is http://why3.gforge.inria.fr, where you
1131
can find the source distribution and the manual. See the manual for
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
1132 1133
installation instructions and contact information.

MARCHE Claude's avatar

The main new features with respect to Why 2.xx are the following.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
1135 1136 1137 1138

1) Completely redesigned input syntax for logic declarations

* new syntax for terms and formulas
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
1139 1140 1141
* enumerated and algebraic data types, pattern matching
* recursive definitions of logic functions and predicates,
  with termination checking
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
1142
* inductive definitions of predicates
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
1143 1144
* declarations are structured in components called "theories",
  which can be reused and instantiated
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
1145 1146 1147 1148 1149 1150 1151

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
1152
3) Source code organized as a library with a documented API,
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
1153
to allow access to Why3 features programmatically.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
1154 1155 1156 1157 1158 1159

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
1160
* ability to edit proofs for interactive provers (Coq only for the moment)
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
1161 1162 1163 1164 1165 1166 1167 1168
  on any subtask

5) Extensible architecture via plugins

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

Andrei Paskevich committed
1169
Beware that some Why features are not yet available in Why3:
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
1170 1171

* There is a VC generator distributed in Why3 in an experimental stage
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
1172 1173
  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
1174 1175 1176 1177

* 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
1178 1179 1180 1181 1182 1183 1184 1185
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
1194
from Why. The detailed announcement is attached below.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
1195 1196 1197 1198 1199 1200 1201 1202

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
1203
and process the generated Why3 file "<file>.jessie/why/<file>_why3.why"
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
1204 1205 1206 1207 1208 1209 1210
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
1211
* ability to call Coq on a given VC to provide a proof script. Incidentally,
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
1212
  this feature can be used to analyse the VC to understand why it is
1213
  not proved automatically.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
1214 1215 1216 1217 1218 1219 1220 1221
* 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.
