== 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
298
from Why versions 2.xx.
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed

The home web page of Why3 is http://why3.gforge.inria.fr, where you
301
can find the source distribution and the manual. See the manual for
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
302 303
installation instructions and contact information.

The main new features with respect to Why 2.xx are the following.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
305 306 307 308

1) Completely redesigned input syntax for logic declarations

* new syntax for terms and formulas
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
309 310 311
* enumerated and algebraic data types, pattern matching
* recursive definitions of logic functions and predicates,
  with termination checking
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
312
* inductive definitions of predicates
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
313 314
* declarations are structured in components called "theories",
  which can be reused and instantiated
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
315 316 317 318 319 320 321

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
322
3) Source code organized as a library with a documented API,
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
323
to allow access to Why3 features programmatically.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
324 325 326 327 328 329

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
330
* ability to edit proofs for interactive provers (Coq only for the moment)
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
331 332 333 334 335 336 337 338
  on any subtask

5) Extensible architecture via plugins

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


Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
339
Beware that some Why features are not yet available in Why3:
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
340 341

* There is a VC generator distributed in Why3 in an experimental stage
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
342 343
  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
344 345 346 347

* 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
348 349 350 351 352 353 354 355
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
364
from Why. The detailed announcement is attached below.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
365 366 367 368 369 370 371 372

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
373
and process the generated Why3 file "<file>.jessie/why/<file>_why3.why"
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
374 375 376 377 378 379 380
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
381
* ability to call Coq on a given VC to provide a proof script. Incidentally,
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
382
  this feature can be used to analyse the VC to understand why it is
383
  not proved automatically.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
384 385 386 387 388 389 390 391
* 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.
