* 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

============ Making a release ============

* check the BTS
* do "make update-coq" and "make", fix Coq realizations if needed
* check that nightly bench is OK
* check that "make xml-validate-local" is OK
  (see below : copy the dtd on the web)

* put 0.86 in file Version, and then run ./config.status
* check/update the content of the About dialog in src/ide/gconfig.ml
  around lines 550-600
* check headers
* check the file CHANGES, add the release date

* generate documentation
 - update the date in doc/manual.tex (near \whyversion{})
 - check that macro \todo is commented out in doc/macros.tex
 - do "make doc"
   (check that manual in HTML is also generated, doc/html/index.html)
 - do "make stdlibdoc"
 - do "make apidoc"

* make a last commit:

   update the url for download
 - make (to check validity)
 - make export

* add a new version to the bugtracker:
  https://gforge.inria.fr/tracker/admin/?group_id=2990&atid=10293&add_extrafield=1

* The next commit : add +git to the version in file Version

  - have GALLERYDIR set to the sub-directory gallery/ of the git sources
    of the Toccata web site, e.g.
    export GALLERYDIR=/users/vals/filliatr/toccata/web/gallery
  - in Why3 sources, do "make gallery"; it exports to GALLERYDIR all
    Why3 programs for which there is a session
  - now move to the Toccata web site sources, and
    - update web/gallery/examples.rc to include new examples
    - "git add" the files for these new examples (those currently untracked
      in git) or simply remove them if they should not go on-line
    - do "make" in web/gallery/
    - do "make install-gallery" in web/

* Once the OPAM package is pulled in the main OPAM repository:
  announce the distrib
  What to put in the announcement: see New Features above

Release Notes:

A major visible change in this release is the way Why3 commands are
invoked: instead of several executables why3, why3config, why3ide,
why3replay, why3session, etc., there is only one Why3 executable
called why3, and the former executables are available as commands given
as first argument, e.g. "why3 config", "why3 ide", etc.

Another quite visible change is that session files are split in two
parts, as detailed below in the detailed changes.

==================== 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 PVS 6
  o [prover] experimental support for mathematica
  o [prover] experimental support for MathSAT5

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

== New Features to announce ==

New features:

    that matches the structure of the goal
  o [why3replayer] option -obsolete-only

935 936 937 938 939 940 941
* fix problems with .why.conf (DONE)
  ** if we distribute the current state, users who already have a ~/.why.conf
     will get a error message because of missing loadpath to modules
     Done? - the magic number will force to not use the old ~/.why.conf of
             the user
  ** generally speaking, we should rethink the design of that .why.conf: avoid
     absolute paths,
942
     Partially done - libdir, datadir, loadpath, ... are not written in
943
     why.conf if they correspond to the default value.

== 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
1022
from Why versions 2.xx.

The home web page of Why3 is http://why3.gforge.inria.fr, where you
1025
can find the source distribution and the manual. See the manual for
1026 1027
installation instructions and contact information.

The main new features with respect to Why 2.xx are the following.
1029 1030 1031 1032

1) Completely redesigned input syntax for logic declarations

* new syntax for terms and formulas
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
1033 1034 1035
* enumerated and algebraic data types, pattern matching
* recursive definitions of logic functions and predicates,
  with termination checking
1036
* inductive definitions of predicates
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
1037 1038
* declarations are structured in components called "theories",
  which can be reused and instantiated
1039 1040 1041 1042 1043 1044 1045

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
1046
3) Source code organized as a library with a documented API,
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
1047
to allow access to Why3 features programmatically.
1048 1049 1050 1051 1052 1053

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
1054
* ability to edit proofs for interactive provers (Coq only for the moment)
1055 1056 1057 1058 1059 1060 1061 1062
  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:
1064 1065

* There is a VC generator distributed in Why3 in an experimental stage
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
1066 1067
  and intentionally undocumented in the current documentation (the input
  syntax for programs may change a lot in the future).
1068 1069 1070 1071

* 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

1072 1073 1074 1075 1076 1077 1078 1079
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.


1080 1081 1082 1083 1084 1085 1086 1087



--------------------- 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
1088
from Why. The detailed announcement is attached below.
1089 1090 1091 1092 1093 1094 1095 1096

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
1097
and process the generated Why3 file "<file>.jessie/why/<file>_why3.why"
1098 1099 1100 1101 1102 1103 1104
with Why3 batch tools).

The main new features of interest in the GUI are

* new provers available
* calling provers in parallel
* splitting on demand
1105
* ability to call Coq on a given VC to provide a proof script. Incidentally,
1106
  this feature can be used to analyse the VC to understand why it is
1107
  not proved automatically.
1108 1109 1110 1111
* 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.
