  under names like z3-3.2 (how ? command-line option ? e.g. -p z3 /usr/local/bin/z3-3.2)
** Ensure that we kill a prover after some time (ressurect %T ? with a
   meaning like twice the value of %t ?), because we cannot be sure they always
   honor their own -timeout option.

----------------------- 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
374 375 376 377

1) Completely redesigned input syntax for logic declarations

* new syntax for terms and formulas
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
378 379 380
* enumerated and algebraic data types, pattern matching
* recursive definitions of logic functions and predicates,
  with termination checking
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
381
* inductive definitions of predicates
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
382 383
* declarations are structured in components called "theories",
  which can be reused and instantiated
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
384 385 386 387 388 389 390

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
391
3) Source code organized as a library with a documented API,
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
392
to allow access to Why3 features programmatically.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
393 394 395 396 397 398

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
399
* ability to edit proofs for interactive provers (Coq only for the moment)
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
400 401 402 403 404 405 406 407
  on any subtask

5) Extensible architecture via plugins

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

408
Beware that some Why features are not yet available in Why3:
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
409 410

* There is a VC generator distributed in Why3 in an experimental stage
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
411 412
  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
413 414 415 416

* 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
417 418 419 420 421 422 423 424
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

from Why. The detailed announcement is attached below.

434 435 436 437 438 439 440 441

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
442
and process the generated Why3 file "<file>.jessie/why/<file>_why3.why"
