 - 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

   (feature wish de F Besson)

==================== 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
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
585
  o co-inductive predicates
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed

  o new option -e for "why3session latex" allows to specify when to
    split tables in parts
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
588 589 590 591
  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.
592
  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

== 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

from Why versions 2.xx.

The home web page of Why3 is http://why3.gforge.inria.fr, where you
1024
can find the source distribution and the manual. See the manual for

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
1028 1029 1030 1031

1) Completely redesigned input syntax for logic declarations

* new syntax for terms and formulas
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
1032 1033 1034
* enumerated and algebraic data types, pattern matching
* recursive definitions of logic functions and predicates,
  with termination checking
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
1035
* inductive definitions of predicates
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
1036 1037
* declarations are structured in components called "theories",
  which can be reused and instantiated
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
1038 1039 1040 1041 1042 1043 1044

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
1045
3) Source code organized as a library with a documented API,
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
1046
to allow access to Why3 features programmatically.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
1047 1048 1049 1050 1051 1052

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
1053
* ability to edit proofs for interactive provers (Coq only for the moment)
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
1054 1055 1056 1057 1058 1059 1060 1061
  on any subtask

5) Extensible architecture via plugins

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

Andrei Paskevich committed
1062
Beware that some Why features are not yet available in Why3:
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
1063 1064

* There is a VC generator distributed in Why3 in an experimental stage
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
1065 1066
  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
1067 1068 1069 1070

* 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
1071 1072 1073 1074 1075 1076 1077 1078
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
1087
from Why. The detailed announcement is attached below.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
1088 1089 1090 1091 1092 1093 1094 1095

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
1096
and process the generated Why3 file "<file>.jessie/why/<file>_why3.why"
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
1097 1098 1099 1100 1101 1102 1103
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
1104
* ability to call Coq on a given VC to provide a proof script. Incidentally,
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
1105
  this feature can be used to analyse the VC to understand why it is
1106
  not proved automatically.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
1107 1108 1109 1110 1111 1112 1113 1114
* 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.
