 - 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

175 176

* upload the OPAM package
177
 - clone https://github.com/ocaml/opam-repository if not already done:
178 179 180
   git clone git@github.com:.../opam-repository.git
   cd opam-repository/
   git remote add opam https://github.com/ocaml/opam-repository.git
181
   opam2 repository add --all-switches --kind=git local .
182 183 184 185
 - reinitialize the repository if not fresh:
   git fetch opam
   git reset --hard opam/master
   git push
186
 - create version directories:
187 188 189 190 191 192 193
   mkdir packages/why3/why3.$VERSION packages/why3-coq/why3-coq.$VERSION packages/why3-ide/why3-ide.$VERSION

 - make a pull request on github

* inform Jerry James <loganjerry@gmail.com> so that he can produce the
  Fedora package

* produce the Why3 part of Toccata gallery
  - have GALLERYDIR set to the sub-directory gallery/ of the git sources
    of the Toccata web site, e.g.
    export GALLERYDIR=/users/vals/filliatr/toccata/web/gallery
  - in Why3 sources, do "make gallery"; it exports to GALLERYDIR all
    Why3 programs for which there is a session
  - now move to the Toccata web site sources, and
    - update web/gallery/examples.rc to include new examples
    - "git add" the files for these new examples (those currently untracked
      in git) or simply remove them if they should not go on-line
    - do "make" in web/gallery/
    - do "make install-gallery" in web/

* Once the OPAM package is pulled in the main OPAM repository:
  announce the distrib

Release Notes:

A major visible change in this release is the way Why3 commands are
invoked: instead of several executables why3, why3config, why3ide,
why3replay, why3session, etc., there is only one Why3 executable
called why3, and the former executables are available as commands given
as first argument, e.g. "why3 config", "why3 ide", etc.

Another quite visible change is that session files are split in two
parts, as detailed below in the detailed changes.

==================== Roadmap for release 0.81 ========================

released on March 25th, 2013

== New Features to announce ==

  o [logic] accept type expressions in clone substitutions
  o [whyml] support for relation chains (e.g., "e1 = e2 < e3")
  * [whyml] every exception raised in a function must be listed
    in as "raises { ... }" clause. A postcondition may be omitted
    and equals to "true" by default.
  * [whyml] if a function definition contains a "writes { ... }"
    clause, then every write effect must be listed. If a function
    definition contains a "reads { ... }" clause, then every read
    _and_ write effect must be listed.
  * [drivers] syntax rules, metas, and preludes are inherited
    through cloning. Keyword "cloned" becomes unnecessary and
    is not accepted anymore.
  o [why3ide] allow several files on the command-line
  o [ocaml API] incompatible changes in Set/Map/Hashtbl modules
  o [ocaml API] examples in the manual extended to API for Why3ml programs
  o [stdlib] fixed inconsistency in map.MapPermut theory
  o [prover] fixed Coq 8.4 support for theory real.Trigonometry
  o [prover] support for Gappa up to 0.16.6
  o [prover] support for Z3 4.2, 4.3.*
  o [prover] support for Alt-Ergo 0.95.1
  o [prover] support for CVC4
  o [prover] support for PVS 6
  o [prover] experimental support for mathematica
  o [prover] experimental support for MathSAT5
  o [examples] several new examples, including solutions to the
    VerifyThis@fm2012 challenges

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

    files in the old format.

  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

  ** generally speaking, we should rethink the design of that .why.conf: avoid
     absolute paths,

== 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
1038
from Why versions 2.xx.

The home web page of Why3 is http://why3.gforge.inria.fr, where you
1041
can find the source distribution and the manual. See the manual for
1042 1043
installation instructions and contact information.

The main new features with respect to Why 2.xx are the following.
1045 1046 1047 1048

1) Completely redesigned input syntax for logic declarations

* new syntax for terms and formulas
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
1049 1050 1051
* enumerated and algebraic data types, pattern matching
* recursive definitions of logic functions and predicates,
  with termination checking
1052
* inductive definitions of predicates
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
1053 1054
* declarations are structured in components called "theories",
  which can be reused and instantiated
1055 1056 1057 1058 1059 1060 1061

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
1062
3) Source code organized as a library with a documented API,
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
1063
to allow access to Why3 features programmatically.
1064 1065 1066 1067 1068 1069

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
1070
* ability to edit proofs for interactive provers (Coq only for the moment)
1071 1072 1073 1074 1075 1076 1077 1078
  on any subtask

5) Extensible architecture via plugins

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

Beware that some Why features are not yet available in Why3:
1080 1081

* There is a VC generator distributed in Why3 in an experimental stage
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
1082 1083
  and intentionally undocumented in the current documentation (the input
  syntax for programs may change a lot in the future).
1084 1085 1086 1087

* 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

1088 1089 1090 1091 1092 1093 1094 1095
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.


1096 1097 1098 1099 1100 1101 1102 1103



--------------------- 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
1104
from Why. The detailed announcement is attached below.
1105 1106 1107 1108 1109 1110 1111 1112

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
1113
and process the generated Why3 file "<file>.jessie/why/<file>_why3.why"
1114 1115 1116 1117 1118 1119 1120
with Why3 batch tools).

The main new features of interest in the GUI are

* new provers available
* calling provers in parallel
* splitting on demand
1121
* ability to call Coq on a given VC to provide a proof script. Incidentally,
1122
  this feature can be used to analyse the VC to understand why it is
1123
  not proved automatically.
1124 1125 1126 1127
* 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.
