* Logic language
 - support for higher-order logic
 - rename andb, orb, xorb and notb into and, or, xor and not

* more libraries (theories and modules)

* A true Jessie3 front-end

* Why3ML
 - Fast WP a la Leino
 - assert qui ne donne pas une hypothese dans la suite -> "check"
   also: in a black box

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

* A literate programming tool for Why3 (JCF)


* IDE:
 - edition, navigation (partially done)
 - saving session: add shortcut "ctrl-S", but beware of confusion with saving the input file
 - 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

----------------------- 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

from Why versions 2.xx.

The home web page of Why3 is http://why3.gforge.inria.fr, where you
493
can find the source distribution and the manual. See the manual for

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
497 498 499 500

1) Completely redesigned input syntax for logic declarations

* new syntax for terms and formulas
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
501 502 503
* enumerated and algebraic data types, pattern matching
* recursive definitions of logic functions and predicates,
  with termination checking
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
504
* inductive definitions of predicates
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
505 506
* declarations are structured in components called "theories",
  which can be reused and instantiated
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
507 508 509 510 511 512 513

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

514
3) Source code organized as a library with a documented API,
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
515
to allow access to Why3 features programmatically.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
516 517 518 519 520 521

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
522
* ability to edit proofs for interactive provers (Coq only for the moment)
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
523 524 525 526 527 528 529 530
  on any subtask

5) Extensible architecture via plugins

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

Beware that some Why features are not yet available in Why3:
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
532 533

* There is a VC generator distributed in Why3 in an experimental stage
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
534 535
  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
536 537 538 539

* 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

540 541 542 543 544 545 546 547
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
556
from Why. The detailed announcement is attached below.
MARCHE Claude's avatar

557 558 559 560 561 562 563 564

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
565
and process the generated Why3 file "<file>.jessie/why/<file>_why3.why"
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
566 567 568 569 570 571 572
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
573
* ability to call Coq on a given VC to provide a proof script. Incidentally,
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
574
  this feature can be used to analyse the VC to understand why it is
575
  not proved automatically.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
576 577 578 579 580 581 582 583
* 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.
