* 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

** "detect provers" menu
** syntax highlighting bugs ?
   some keywords are not colored in the bottom-right window
   (but they are in the top-right window)
   NEED FEEDBACK which ones ???

* (JCF) reject global "val"s in typing environment for logic decls.

* Documentation
 - (ANDREI) make the glossary available 
 - (CLAUDE) complete api.tex: explain how to build theories, apply
   transformations, write new functions on terms (A)

* PRIORITAIRE Coq output
 - corriger l'incoherence, comprendre si on veut vraiment accepter

  function x : 'a
  (cf: en caml cela ne marche pas)
 Solution proposee: utiliser des types classes, en particulier Inhabited

* PRIORITAIRE, JCF et ANDREI, clone de module
 - demarche: ecrire une API avec smart constructors garantissant
   le bon typage, et clone sera en premier lieu un de ces constructors
 - cas d'utilisation: range d'entiers de Jessie, Flottants -> double ou single
   containeurs pour Adacore et Claire

==================== 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
167
  o co-inductive predicates
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
168 169
  o new option -e for "why3session latex" allows to specify when to
    split tables in parts
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
170 171 172 173
  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.

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
597
from Why versions 2.xx.

The home web page of Why3 is http://why3.gforge.inria.fr, where you

can find the source distribution and the manual. See the manual for

The main new features with respect to Why 2.xx are the following.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
604 605 606 607

1) Completely redesigned input syntax for logic declarations

* new syntax for terms and formulas
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
608 609 610
* enumerated and algebraic data types, pattern matching
* recursive definitions of logic functions and predicates,
  with termination checking
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
611
* inductive definitions of predicates
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
612 613
* declarations are structured in components called "theories",
  which can be reused and instantiated
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
614 615 616 617 618 619 620

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
621
3) Source code organized as a library with a documented API,
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
622
to allow access to Why3 features programmatically.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
623 624 625 626 627 628

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
629
* ability to edit proofs for interactive provers (Coq only for the moment)
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
630 631 632 633 634 635 636 637
  on any subtask

5) Extensible architecture via plugins

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

638
Beware that some Why features are not yet available in Why3:
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
639 640

* There is a VC generator distributed in Why3 in an experimental stage
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
641 642
  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
643 644 645 646

* 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
647 648 649 650 651 652 653 654
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
663
from Why. The detailed announcement is attached below.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
664 665 666 667 668 669 670 671

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
672
and process the generated Why3 file "<file>.jessie/why/<file>_why3.why"
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
673 674 675 676 677 678 679
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
680
* ability to call Coq on a given VC to provide a proof script. Incidentally,
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
681
  this feature can be used to analyse the VC to understand why it is
682
  not proved automatically.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
683 684 685 686 687 688 689 690
* 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.
