==============================

  o [examples] a lot of new program examples in directory examples/programs
  o [Why3replayer] new option -latex to output a proof session in LaTeX format
  o [WhyML] significant improvement of the efficiency of the WP calculus
  o [WhyIDE] better coloring and source positioning including from front-ends 
    such as Krakatoa and Jessie plugin of Frama-C

  o [Session] prover versions are stored in database. A proof is
    marked obsolete if it was made by a prover with another version
    than the current.

version 0.70, July 6, 2011
==========================

  New features

  o [WhyML] language and VC generator
  o [syntax] record types
    - introduced with syntax "type t = {| a:int; b:bool |}"
      actually syntactic sugar for "type t = `mk t' (a:int) (b:bool)"
      i.e. an algebraic with one constructor and projection functions
    - a record expression is written {| a = 1; b = True |}
29 30 31
    - access to field a with syntax x.a
    - update with syntax {| x with b = False |}
    - record patterns
32
  o new tool why3replayer: batch replay of a Why3 session created in IDE
33
  o [Alt-Ergo/Z3/CVC3/Yices output] support for built-in theory of arrays
34 35 36 37 38 39

  Fixes and other changes

  * [syntax] new syntax for conjunction (/\) and disjunction (\/)
    ("and" and "or" do not exist anymore)
  * [syntax] "logic" is not a keyword anymore, use "function" and "predicate"
40 41
  o [IDE] interactive detection of provers disabled because incompatible
    with session. Detection must be done with why3config --detect-provers

  o [IDE] does not use Threads anymore, thanks to Call_provers.query_call
  o [IDE] displays explanations using labels of the form "expl:..."

  o [IDE] dropped dependence on Sqlite3
48 49 50 51 52 53 54
  o [Alt-Ergo output] bugfix: no triggers for "exists" quantifier
  o [Coq output] bugfix: polymorphic inductive predicates
  o [Coq output] fixed bug 12934: type def with several type params
  * [API] functions to create an environment are now exported from Env
  * [API] calls to prover can now be asynchronous
    Driver.prove_task now returns some intermediate value
    (of type prover_call), which can be queried in two ways:
55 56 57 58
    - blocking way with Call_provers.wait_on_call
    - non-blocking way with Call_provers.query_call
    So old code performing "prove_task t () ()" should be translated to
    "wait_on_call (prove_task t ()) ()".

version 0.64, Feb 16, 2011
==========================

63
  o configure: if possible, use ocamlfind to find lablgtk2 and sqlite3
64
  o algebraic types: must be well-founded, non-positive constructors

65
    are forbidden, recursive functions and predicates must
66
    structurally terminate
67
  * syntax: /\ renamed into && and \/ into ||

68 69
  o accept lowercase names for axioms, lemmas, goals, and cases in
    inductive predicates
70
  o labels in terms and formulas are not printed by default.
71 72 73 74 75 76 77 78 79 80 81
  o transformation split-goal does not split under disjunction anymore
  o fixed --enable-local
  o why.conf is no more looked for in the current directory; use -C or
    WHY3CONFIG instead
  o why.conf: when changed, a backup up copy is made in why.conf.bak
  o why.conf now contains a magic number; configuration must be
    rebuilt with why3config if the magic number has changed
  o why3config: --autodetect-provers renamed to --detect-provers
                --autodetect-plugins renamed to --detect-plugins
     new option --detect to perform both detections
  o why3config: --conf_file is replaced by -C and --config

  o TPTP: encoding by explicit polymorphism is not anymore the
83
    default encoding for TPTP provers. It is now forbidden to use this

MARCHE Claude committed
84
    encoding in presence of finite types.
85
  o IDE: source file names are stored in database with paths relative
86 87 88
    to the database, so that databases are now easier to move from a
    machine to another (e.g when they are stored in source control
    repositories)
89
  o better Gappa output: support for sqrt, for negative constants
90 91 92 93 94

version 0.63, Dec 21, 2010
==========================

  o first public release. See release notes in manual
