* 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

==================== 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
264
  o co-inductive predicates
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
265 266
  o new option -e for "why3session latex" allows to specify when to
    split tables in parts
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
267 268 269 270
  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.
271
  o [Provers] support for Z3 4.0
MARCHE Claude's avatar

272 273 274 275 276 277 278 279 280 281 282 283 284 285 286 287 288 289 290

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

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

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
711 712 713 714

1) Completely redesigned input syntax for logic declarations

* new syntax for terms and formulas
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
715 716 717
* enumerated and algebraic data types, pattern matching
* recursive definitions of logic functions and predicates,
  with termination checking
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
718
* inductive definitions of predicates
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
719 720
* declarations are structured in components called "theories",
  which can be reused and instantiated
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
721 722 723 724 725 726 727

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
728
3) Source code organized as a library with a documented API,
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
729
to allow access to Why3 features programmatically.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
730 731 732 733 734 735

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
736
* ability to edit proofs for interactive provers (Coq only for the moment)
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
737 738 739 740 741 742 743 744
  on any subtask

5) Extensible architecture via plugins

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

745
Beware that some Why features are not yet available in Why3:
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
746 747

* There is a VC generator distributed in Why3 in an experimental stage
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
748 749
  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
750 751 752 753

* 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
754 755 756 757 758 759 760 761
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
770
from Why. The detailed announcement is attached below.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
771 772 773 774 775 776 777 778

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
779
and process the generated Why3 file "<file>.jessie/why/<file>_why3.why"
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
780 781 782 783 784 785 786
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
787
* ability to call Coq on a given VC to provide a proof script. Incidentally,
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
788
  this feature can be used to analyse the VC to understand why it is
789
  not proved automatically.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
790 791 792 793 794 795 796 797
* 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.
