50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 61
* fix support for newer Z3, CVC3 and Alt-Ergo, allow several version
  of them at the same time. Allow why3config --detect to find e.g z3
  under names like z3-3.2 (how ? command-line option ? e.g. -p z3 /usr/local/bin/z3-3.2)

* move Session module and its dependencies into the Why3 library

* document new tools why3stats or others

* 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.

== 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
317
from Why versions 2.xx.
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
318 319

The home web page of Why3 is http://why3.gforge.inria.fr, where you
320
can find the source distribution and the manual. See the manual for
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
321 322
installation instructions and contact information.

MARCHE Claude's avatar

323
The main new features with respect to Why 2.xx are the following.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
324 325 326 327

1) Completely redesigned input syntax for logic declarations

* new syntax for terms and formulas
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
328 329 330
* enumerated and algebraic data types, pattern matching
* recursive definitions of logic functions and predicates,
  with termination checking
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
331
* inductive definitions of predicates
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
332 333
* declarations are structured in components called "theories",
  which can be reused and instantiated
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
334 335 336 337 338 339 340

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
341
3) Source code organized as a library with a documented API,
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
342
to allow access to Why3 features programmatically.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
343 344 345 346 347 348

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
349
* ability to edit proofs for interactive provers (Coq only for the moment)
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
350 351 352 353 354 355 356 357
  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
358
Beware that some Why features are not yet available in Why3:
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
359 360

* There is a VC generator distributed in Why3 in an experimental stage
Andrei Paskevich's avatar
Andrei Paskevich committed
361 362
  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
363 364 365 366

* 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
367 368 369 370 371 372 373 374
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
383
from Why. The detailed announcement is attached below.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
384 385 386 387 388 389 390 391

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
392
and process the generated Why3 file "<file>.jessie/why/<file>_why3.why"
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
393 394 395 396 397 398 399
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
400
* ability to call Coq on a given VC to provide a proof script. Incidentally,
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
401
  this feature can be used to analyse the VC to understand why it is
402
  not proved automatically.
MARCHE Claude's avatar
MARCHE Claude committed
403 404 405 406 407 408 409 410
* 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.
