way the logic is used on paper.  We also mention some significant changes in the
Coq development, but not every API-breaking change is listed.  Changes marked

**Changes in the theory of Iris itself:**

* [#] Redefine invariants as "semantic invariants" so that they support
  splitting and other forms of weakening.

* Updated the strong variant of the opening lemma for cancellable invariants
  to match that of regular invariants, where you can pick the mask at a later time.

**Changes in program logic:**

* In the axiomatization of ectx languages we replace the axiom of positivity of
  context composition with an axiom that says if `fill K e` takes a head step,
  then either `K` is the empty evaluation context or `e` is a value.

* A new tactic `iStopProof` to turn the proof mode entailment into an ordinary
  Coq goal `big star of context ⊢ proof mode goal`.

* Rename `iProp`/`iPreProp` to `iPropO`/`iPrePropO` since they are `ofeT`s.
  Introduce `iProp` for the `Type` carrier of `iPropO`.

* Move derived camera constructions (`frac_auth` and `ufrac_auth`) to the folder
  `algebra/lib`.
* Add derived camera construction `excl_auth A` for `auth (option (excl A))`.
31 32 33
* Make use of `notypeclasses refine` in the implementation of `iPoseProof` and
  `iAssumption`, see https://gitlab.mpi-sws.org/iris/iris/merge_requests/329
  This has two consequences:
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
34 35
  1. Coq's "new" unification algorithm (the one in `refine`, not the "old" one
     in `apply`) is used more often by the proof mode tactics.
Robbert Krebbers's avatar
Robbert Krebbers committed
36 37
  2. Due to the use of `notypeclasses refine`, TC constraints are solved less
     eagerly, see https://github.com/coq/coq/issues/6583.
38 39 40 41
  In order to port your development, it is often needed to instantiate evars
  explicitly (since TC search is performed less eagerly), and in few cases it is
  needed to unfold definitions explicitly (due to new unification algorithm
  behaving differently).
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
42 43 44
* Removed `Core` type class for defining the total core; it is now always
  defined in terms of the partial core. The only user of this type class was the
  STS RA.
Robbert Krebbers's avatar
Robbert Krebbers committed
45 46
* Added the type `siProp` of "plain" step-indexed propositions, together with
  basic proofmode support.
47 48
* Sealed the definitions of `big_opS`, `big_opMS`, `big_opM` and `big_sepM2`
  to prevent undesired simplification.

49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56
* The tactics `iDestruct`, `iPoseProof`, and `iAssert` have become stronger:
  - They succeed in certain cases where they used to fail.
  - They keep certain hypotheses in the intuitionistic context, where they were
    moved to the spatial context before.
  The latter can lead to stronger proof mode contexts, and therefore to
  backwards incompatibility. This can usually be fixed by manually clearing some
  hypotheses. A more detailed description of the changes can be found in
  https://gitlab.mpi-sws.org/iris/iris/merge_requests/341.

57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64 65
* Renamed some accessor-style lemmas to consistently use the suffix `_acc`
  instead of `_open`:
  `inv_open` -> `inv_acc`, `inv_open_strong` -> `inv_acc_strong`,
  `inv_open_timeless` -> `inv_acc_timeless`, `na_inv_open` -> `na_inv_acc`,
  `cinv_open` -> `cinv_acc`, `cinv_open_strong` -> `cinv_acc_strong`,
  `auth_open` -> `auth_acc`, `sts_open` -> `sts_acc`.
  To make this work we also had to rename `inv_acc` -> `inv_alter`.
  (Most developments should be unaffected as the typical way to invoke these
  lemmas is through `iInv`, and that does not change.)
66 67
* Added a construction `bi_rtc` to create reflexive transitive closures of
  PROP-level binary relations.
68 69
* Add new introduction pattern `-# pat` that moves a hypothesis from the
  intuitionistic context to the spatial context.

The highlight of this release is the completely re-engineered interactive proof
mode.  Not only did many tactics become more powerful; the entire proof mode can
now be used not just for Iris but also for other separation logics satisfying

Beyond that, the Iris program logic gained the ability to reason about
potentially stuck programs, and a significantly strengthened adequacy theorem
that unifies the three previously separately presented theorems.  There are now
also Hoare triples for total program correctness (but with very limited support
for invariants) and logical atomicity.

And finally, our example language HeapLang was made more realistic
(Compare-and-set got replaced by compare-exchange and limited to only compare
values that can actually be compared atomically) and more powerful, with added
support for arrays and prophecy variables.

Further details are given in the changelog below.

* Change in the definition of WP, so that there is a fancy update between

  the quantification over the next states and the later modality. This makes it
  possible to prove more powerful lifting lemmas: The new versions feature an

109 110 111
* Add weakest preconditions for total program correctness.
* "(Potentially) stuck" weakest preconditions and the "plainly modality" are no
  longer considered experimental.
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
112
* Add the notion of an "observation" to the language interface, so that
Ralf Jung's avatar

  every reduction step can optionally be marked with an event, and an execution
  trace has a matching list of events.  Change WP so that it is told the entire

  future trace of observations from the beginning.

  functions.

119
* Add atomic updates and logically atomic triples, including tactic support.

120
  See `heap_lang/lib/increment.v` for an example.
121 122 123
* Extend the state interpretation with a natural number that keeps track of
  the number of forked-off threads, and have a global fixed proposition that
  describes the postcondition of each forked-off thread (instead of it being
Robbert Krebbers's avatar
Robbert Krebbers committed
124
  `True`).
125 126 127
* A stronger adequacy statement for weakest preconditions that involves
  the final state, the post-condition of forked-off threads, and also applies if
  the main-thread has not terminated.
128 129 130
* The user-chosen functor used to instantiate the Iris logic now goes from
  COFEs to Cameras (it was OFEs to Cameras).

**Changes in heap_lang:**
132

133 134 135 136 137 138 139 140
* CAS (compare-and-set) got replaced by CmpXchg (compare-exchange).  The
  difference is that CmpXchg returns a pair consisting of the old value and a
  boolean indicating whether the comparison was successful and hence the
  exchange happened.  CAS can be obtained by simply projecting to the second
  component, but also providing the old value more closely models the primitive
  typically provided in systems languages (C, C++, Rust).
  The comparison by this operation also got weakened to be efficiently
  implementable: CmpXchg may only be used to compare "unboxed" values that can
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
141 142 143 144 145
  be represented in a single machine word. It is sufficient if one of the two
  compared values is unboxed.
* For consistency, the restrictions CmpXchg imposes on comparison also apply to
  the `=` binary operator. This also fixes the long-standing problem that that
  operator allowed compared closures with each other.
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
146 147
* Implement prophecy variables using the new support for "observations". The
  erasure theorem (showing that prophecy variables do not alter program
Ralf Jung's avatar

148
  behavior) can be found [in the iris/examples repository][prophecy-erasure].
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
149
* heap_lang now uses right-to-left evaluation order. This makes it
Ralf Jung's avatar

150
  significantly easier to write specifications of curried functions.
Ralf Jung's avatar

151
* heap_lang values are now injected in heap_lang expressions via a specific

  constructor of the expr inductive type. This simplifies much the tactical
  infrastructure around the language. In particular, this allow us to get rid

  "administrative" reductions in the operational semantics of the language.
157 158

  (continuously allocated regions of memory).

  features:
  - The proof mode can now be used with logics derived from Iris (like iGPS),
    with non-step-indexed logics and even with non-affine (i.e., linear) logics.
  - `iModIntro` is more flexible and more powerful, it now also subsumes
    `iNext` and `iAlways`.
  - General infrastructure for deriving a logic for monotone predicates over

    Developments instantiating the proof mode typeclasses may need significant
Robbert Krebbers's avatar
Robbert Krebbers committed
174 175
    changes.  For developments just using the proof mode tactics, porting should
    not be too much effort.  Notable things to port are:
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
176 177 178 179 180
  - All the BI laws moved from the `uPred` module to the `bi` module.  For
    example, `uPred.later_equivI` became `bi.later_equivI`.
  - Big-ops are automatically imported, imports of `iris.base_logic.big_op` have
    to be removed.
  - The ⊢ notation can sometimes infer different (but convertible) terms when
Robbert Krebbers's avatar
Robbert Krebbers committed
181
    searching for the BI to use, which (due to Coq limitations) can lead to
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
182 183 184 185
    failing rewrites, in particular when rewriting at function types.
* The `iInv` tactic can now be used without the second argument (the name for
  the closing update).  It will then instead add the obligation to close the
  invariant to the goal.
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
186 187
* The new `iEval` tactic can be used to execute a simplification or rewriting
  tactic on some specific part(s) of the proofmode goal.
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
188 189
* Added support for defining derived connectives involving n-ary binders using
  telescopes.
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
190 191 192
* The proof mode now more consistently "prettifies" the goal after each tactic.
  Prettification also simplifies some BI connectives, like conditional
  modalities and telescope quantifiers.
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
193
* Improved pretty-printing of Iris connectives (in particular WP and fancy
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
194 195 196
  updates) when Coq has to line-wrap the output.  This goes hand-in-hand with an
  improved test suite that also tests pretty-printing.
* Added a `gmultiset` RA.
197
* Rename `timelessP` -> `timeless` (projection of the `Timeless` class)
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
198 199
* The CMRA axiom `cmra_extend` is now stated in `Type`, using `sigT` instead of
  in `Prop` using `exists`. This makes it possible to define the function space

  CMRA even for an infinite domain.
Robbert Krebbers's avatar
Robbert Krebbers committed
201 202 203 204 205
* Rename proof mode type classes for laters:
  - `IntoLaterN``MaybeIntoLaterN` (this one _may_ strip a later)
  - `IntoLaterN'``IntoLaterN` (this one _should_ strip a later)
  - `IntoLaterNEnv``MaybeIntoLaterNEnv`
  - `IntoLaterNEnvs``MaybeIntoLaterNEnvs`
206 207
* Rename:
  - `frag_auth_op``frac_auth_frag_op`
208 209 210
  - `cmra_opM_assoc``cmra_op_opM_assoc`
  - `cmra_opM_assoc_L``cmra_op_opM_assoc_L`
  - `cmra_opM_assoc'``cmra_opM_opM_assoc`
Robbert Krebbers's avatar
Robbert Krebbers committed
211
* `namespaces` has been moved to std++.
212 213
* Changed `IntoVal` to be directly usable for rewriting `e` into `of_val v`, and
  changed `AsVal` to be usable for rewriting via the `[v <-]` destruct pattern.
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
214
* `wp_fork` is now written in curried form.
215
* `PureExec`/`wp_pure` now supports taking multiple steps at once.
Jacques-Henri Jourdan's avatar
Jacques-Henri Jourdan committed
216 217 218
* A new tactic, `wp_pures`, executes as many pure steps as possible, excluding
  steps that would require unlocking subterms. Every impure wp_ tactic executes
  this tactic before doing anything else.
Dan Frumin's avatar
Dan Frumin committed
219
* Add `big_sepM_insert_acc`.
220 221 222 223
* Add big separating conjunctions that operate on pairs of lists (`big_sepL2`)
  and on pairs of maps (`big_sepM2`). In the former case the lists are required
  to have the same length, and in the latter case the maps are required to
  have the same domains.
Dan Frumin's avatar
Dan Frumin committed
224 225 226
* The `_strong` lemmas (e.g. `own_alloc_strong`) work for all infinite
  sets, instead of just for cofinite sets. The versions with cofinite
  sets have been renamed to use the `_cofinite` suffix.
Robbert Krebbers's avatar
Robbert Krebbers committed
227 228 229
* Remove locked value lambdas. The value scope notations `rec: f x := e` and
  `(λ: x, e)` no longer add a `locked`. Instead, we made the `wp_` tactics
  smarter to no longer unfold lambdas/recs that occur behind definitions.
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
230
* Export the fact that `iPreProp` is a COFE.
231 232 233 234 235 236 237
* The CMRA `auth` now can have fractional authoritative parts. So now `auth` has
  3 types of elements: the fractional authoritative `●{q} a`, the full
  authoritative `● a ≡ ●{1} a`, and the non-authoritative `◯ a`. Updates are
  only possible with the full authoritative element `● a`, while fractional
  authoritative elements have agreement: `✓ (●{p} a ⋅ ●{q} b) ⇒ a ≡ b`. As a
  consequence, `auth` is no longer a COFE and does not preserve Leibniz
  equality.
238 239
* Add a COFE construction (and functor) on dependent pairs `sigTO`, dual to
  `discrete_funO`.
Hai Dang's avatar
Hai Dang committed
240 241 242 243 244 245
* Rename in `auth`:
  - Use `auth_auth_proj`/`auth_frag_proj` for the projections of `auth`:
    `authoritative``auth_auth_proj` and `auth_own``auth_frag_proj`.
  - Use `auth_auth` and `auth_frag` for the injections into authoritative
    elements and non-authoritative elements respectively.
  - Lemmas for the projections and injections are renamed accordingly.

    + `authoritative_validN``auth_auth_proj_validN`
    + `auth_own_validN``auth_frag_proj_validN`
    + `auth_auth_valid` was not renamed because it was already used for the
      authoritative injection.

* Add the camera `ufrac` for unbounded fractions (i.e. without fractions that
  can be `> 1`) and the camera `ufrac_auth` for a variant of the authoritative
  fractional camera (`frac_auth`) with unbounded fractions.
256 257
* Changed `frac_auth` notation from `●!`/`◯!` to `●F`/`◯F`. sed script:
  `s/◯!/◯F/g; s/●!/●F/g;`.
258 259
* Lemma `prop_ext` works in both directions; its default direction is the
  opposite of what it used to be.

* Make direction of `f_op` rewrite lemmas more consistent: Flip `pair_op`,

* Rename lemmas `fupd_big_sep{L,M,S,MS}` into `big_sep{L,M,S,MS}_fupd` to be
  consistent with other such big op lemmas. Also add such lemmas for `bupd`.
265
* Rename `C` suffixes into `O` since we no longer use COFEs but OFEs. Also

  preconditions. (See [Swasey et al., OOPSLA '17] for examples.) The non-stuck
  `WP e @ E {{ Φ }}` ensures that, as `e` runs, it does not get stuck. The stuck
  `WP e @ E ?{{ Φ }}` ensures that, as usual, all invariants are preserved while
  `e` runs, but it permits execution to get stuck. The former implies the
  latter. The full judgment is `WP e @ s; E {{ Φ }}`, where non-stuck WP uses
  *stuckness bit* `s = NotStuck` while stuck WP uses `s = MaybeStuck`.

351 352 353 354 355 356 357 358 359 360 361
* Some extensions/improvements of heap_lang:
  - Improve handling of pure (non-state-dependent) reductions.
  - Add fetch-and-add (`FAA`) operation.
  - Add syntax for all Coq's binary operations on `Z`.
* Generalize `saved_prop` to let the user choose the location of the type-level
  later.  Rename the general form to `saved_anything`.  Provide `saved_prop` and
  `saved_pred` as special cases.
* Improved big operators:
  + They are no longer tied to cameras, but work on any monoid
  + The version of big operations over lists was redefined so that it enjoys
    more definitional equalities.

* Rename some things and change notation:
363
  - The unit of a camera: `empty` -> `unit`, `∅` -> `ε`
364
  - Disjointness: `⊥` -> `##`
Ralf Jung's avatar

365
  - A proof mode type class `IntoOp` -> `IsOp`
366 367 368 369 370 371
  - OFEs with all elements being discrete: `Discrete` -> `OfeDiscrete`
  - OFE elements whose equality is discrete: `Timeless` -> `Discrete`
  - Timeless propositions: `TimelessP` -> `Timeless`
  - Camera elements such that `core x = x`: `Persistent` -> `CoreId`
  - Persistent propositions: `PersistentP` -> `Persistent`
  - The persistent modality: `always` -> `persistently`
372
  - Adequacy for non-stuck weakestpre: `adequate_safe` -> `adequate_not_stuck`

  - Consistently SnakeCase identifiers:
374 375 376 377 378 379 380 381 382 383
    + `CMRAMixin` -> `CmraMixin`
    + `CMRAT` -> `CmraT`
    + `CMRATotal` -> `CmraTotal`
    + `CMRAMorphism` -> `CmraMorphism`
    + `CMRADiscrete` -> `CmraDiscrete`

    + `DRAT` -> `DraT`
    + `STS` -> `Sts`

  - Many lemmas also changed their name.  `always_*` became `persistently_*`,
    and furthermore: (the following list is not complete)
386 387 388 389 390 391 392 393 394 395
    + `impl_wand` -> `impl_wand_1` (it only involves one direction of the
      equivalent)
    + `always_impl_wand` -> `impl_wand`
    + `always_and_sep_l` -> `and_sep_l`
    + `always_and_sep_r` -> `and_sep_r`
    + `always_sep_dup` -> `sep_dup`
    + `wand_impl_always` -> `impl_wand_persistently` (additionally,
      the direction of this equivalence got swapped for consistency's sake)
    + `always_wand_impl` -> `persistently_impl_wand` (additionally, the
      direction of this equivalence got swapped for consistency's sake)

* Fix a bunch of consistency issues in the proof mode, and make it overall more
  usable.  In particular:
405 406 407 408 409 410 411 412 413 414
  - All proof mode tactics start the proof mode if necessary; `iStartProof` is
    no longer needed and should only be used for building custom proof mode
    tactics.
  - Change in the grammar of specialization patterns: `>[...]` -> `[> ...]`
  - Various new specification patterns for `done` and framing.
  - There is common machinery for symbolic execution of pure reductions. This
    is provided by the type classes `PureExec` and `IntoVal`.
  - There is a new connective `tc_opaque`, which can be used to make definitions
    opaque for type classes, and thus opaque for most tactics of the proof
    mode.

415 416 417 418 419 420 421 422
  - Define Many missing type class instances for distributing connectives.
  - Implement the tactics `iIntros (?)` and `iIntros "!#"` (i.e. `iAlways`)
    using type classes. This makes them more generic, e.g., `iIntros (?)` also
    works when the universal quantifier is below a modality, and `iAlways` also
    works for the plainness modality.  A breaking change, however, is that these
    tactics now no longer work when the universal quantifier or modality is
    behind a type class opaque definition.  Furthermore, this can change the
    name of anonymous identifiers introduced with the "%" pattern.

* Define the generic `fill` operation of the `ectxi_language` construct in terms
  of a left fold instead of a right fold. This gives rise to more definitional
  equalities.

* The language hierarchy (`language`, `ectx_language`, `ectxi_language`) is now
  fully formalized using canonical structures instead of using a mixture of
  type classes and canonical structures. Also, it now uses explicit mixins. The
  file `program_logic/ectxi_language` contains some documentation on how to
  setup Iris for your language.

* Restore the original, stronger notion of atomicity alongside the weaker
  notion. These are `Atomic a e` where the stuckness bit `s` indicates whether
434 435
  expression `e` is weakly (`a = WeaklyAtomic`) or strongly
  (`a = StronglyAtomic`) atomic.
436 437 438 439
* Various improvements to `solve_ndisj`.
* Use `Hint Mode` to prevent Coq from making arbitrary guesses in the presence
  of evars, which often led to divergence. There are a few places where type
  annotations are now needed.
440
* The rules `internal_eq_rewrite` and `internal_eq_rewrite_contractive` are now

  deprecated notations and definitions that are provided for backwards
  compatibility and will be removed in a future version of Iris.

* View shifts are radically simplified to just internalize frame-preserving
449
  updates.  Weakestpre is defined inside the logic, and invariants and view

450
  shifts with masks are also coded up inside Iris.  Adequacy of weakestpre is
451
  proven in the logic. The old ownership of the entire physical state is
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
452 453
  replaced by a user-selected predicate over physical state that is maintained
  by weakestpre.
454
* Use OFEs instead of COFEs everywhere.  COFEs are only used for solving the
455 456
  recursive domain equation.  As a consequence, CMRAs no longer need a proof of
  completeness.  (The old `cofeT` is provided by `algebra.deprecated`.)
457
* Implement a new agreement construction.  Unlike the old one, this one
458 459
  preserves discreteness.  dec_agree is thus no longer needed and has been moved
  to algebra.deprecated.
460 461 462
* Renaming and moving things around: uPred and the rest of the base logic are in
  `base_logic`, while `program_logic` is for everything involving the general
  Iris notion of a language.
463 464 465 466
* Renaming in prelude.list: Rename `prefix_of` -> `prefix` and `suffix_of` ->
  `suffix` in lemma names, but keep notation ``l1 `prefix_of` l2`` and ``l1
  `suffix_of` l2``.  `` l1 `sublist` l2`` becomes ``l1 `sublist_of` l2``. Rename
  `contains` -> `submseteq` and change `` l1 `contains` l2`` to ``l1 ⊆+ l2``.

467 468 469
* Slightly weaker notion of atomicity: an expression is atomic if it reduces in
  one step to something that does not reduce further.
* Changed notation for embedding Coq assertions into Iris.  The new notation is
470
  ⌜φ⌝.  Also removed `=` and `⊥` from the Iris scope.  (The old notations are
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
471
  provided in `base_logic.deprecated`.)
472
* Up-closure of namespaces is now a notation (↑) instead of a coercion.
473 474
* With invariants and the physical state being handled in the logic, there is no
  longer any reason to demand the CMRA unit to be discrete.
Ralf Jung's avatar

475
* The language can now fork off multiple threads at once.
476 477
* Local Updates (for the authoritative monoid) are now a 4-way relation with
  syntax-directed lemmas proving them.

* [heap_lang] No longer use dependent types for expressions.  Instead, values
  carry a proof of closedness.  Substitution, closedness and value-ness proofs
  are performed by computation after reflecting into a term langauge that knows
  about values and closed expressions.
485 486
* [program_logic/language] The language does not define its own "atomic"
  predicate.  Instead, atomicity is defined as reducing in one step to a value.
487 488 489 490 491
* [program_logic] Due to a lack of maintenance and usefulness, lifting lemmas
  for Hoare triples are removed.
