=== Roadmap for third release ==========================================

* Check if doc is up-to-date

52 53 54 55 56
* Add as many examples as possible in the regression tests

* Distribution of examples: we should distribute those who have an xml file
  under git, and distribute the XML and Coq proofs

  (?)

* DONE IDE: reload
  (claude)

* DONE BD : se passer de sqlite3
  (Claude)
  Solution: un unique fichier XML, qui est ecrit mais pas
  tres souvent (pas plus d'une fois par seconde)
  ne pas oublier neanmoins de mettre une action dans Timeout
  qui enregistre au bout d'un moment
  pb: n'est pas independant de l'IDE, peut-on faire un module
  independant de l'IDE ? qui serait utilisé par why3bench ?

* DONE IDE: avoir des transformations non codees en dur
  (Claude d'abord)

* DONE Bug des md5
  (Claude. pas reproductible ? Pb de duplication des buts ?)

     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,

     Partially done - libdir, datadir, loadpath, ... are not written in

== 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
190
from Why versions 2.xx.
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
191 192

The home web page of Why3 is http://why3.gforge.inria.fr, where you
193
can find the source distribution and the manual. See the manual for
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
194 195
installation instructions and contact information.

MARCHE Claude's avatar

The main new features with respect to Why 2.xx are the following.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
197 198 199 200

1) Completely redesigned input syntax for logic declarations

* new syntax for terms and formulas
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
201 202 203
* enumerated and algebraic data types, pattern matching
* recursive definitions of logic functions and predicates,
  with termination checking
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
204
* inductive definitions of predicates
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
205 206
* declarations are structured in components called "theories",
  which can be reused and instantiated
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
207 208 209 210 211 212 213

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
214
3) Source code organized as a library with a documented API,
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
215
to allow access to Why3 features programmatically.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
216 217 218 219 220 221

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
222
* ability to edit proofs for interactive provers (Coq only for the moment)
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
223 224 225 226 227 228 229 230
  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
231
Beware that some Why features are not yet available in Why3:
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
232 233

* There is a VC generator distributed in Why3 in an experimental stage
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
234 235
  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
236 237 238 239

* 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
240 241 242 243 244 245 246 247
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
256
from Why. The detailed announcement is attached below.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
257 258 259 260 261 262 263 264

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
265
and process the generated Why3 file "<file>.jessie/why/<file>_why3.why"
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
266 267 268 269 270 271 272
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
273
* ability to call Coq on a given VC to provide a proof script. Incidentally,
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
274
  this feature can be used to analyse the VC to understand why it is
275
  not proved automatically.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
276 277 278 279 280 281 282 283
* 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.
