In this changelog, we document "large-ish" changes to Iris that affect even the
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

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.

Changes in the theory of Iris itself:

40
* Change in the definition of WP, so that there is a fancy update between

42
  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
Ralf Jung's avatar

43
  "update that takes a step".
44
45
46
* 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
47
* Add the notion of an "observation" to the language interface, so that
Ralf Jung's avatar

48
49
  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
50
  future trace of observations from the beginning.

* The Löb rule is now a derived rule; it follows from later-intro, later

  being contractive and the fact that we can take fixpoints of contractive
  functions.
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
54
* Add atomic updates and logically atomic triples, including tactic support.
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
55
  See `heap_lang/lib/increment.v` for an example.
56
57
58
* 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
59
  `True`).
60
61
62
* 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.
63
64
65
66
67
* 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:

68
69
70
71
72
73
74
75
* 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
76
77
78
79
80
  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
81
82
* Implement prophecy variables using the new support for "observations". The
  erasure theorem (showing that prophecy variables do not alter program
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
83
  behavior) can be found [in the iris/examples repository][prophecy-erasure].
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
84
* heap_lang now uses right-to-left evaluation order. This makes it
Ralf Jung's avatar

85
  significantly easier to write specifications of curried functions.

Ralf Jung committed
86
* 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.
92
93

  (continuously allocated regions of memory).

  - 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

    not be too much effort.  Notable things to port are:

114
115
  - 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
116
    searching for the BI to use, which (due to Coq limitations) can lead to
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
117
118
119
120
    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
121
122
* 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
123
124
* Added support for defining derived connectives involving n-ary binders using
  telescopes.
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
125
126
127
* 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
128
* Improved pretty-printing of Iris connectives (in particular WP and fancy

Ralf Jung committed
129
130
131
  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.
132
* Rename `timelessP` -> `timeless` (projection of the `Timeless` class)
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
133
134
* 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.

  - `IntoLaterN``MaybeIntoLaterN` (this one _may_ strip a later)
  - `IntoLaterN'``IntoLaterN` (this one _should_ strip a later)
  - `IntoLaterNEnv``MaybeIntoLaterNEnv`
  - `IntoLaterNEnvs``MaybeIntoLaterNEnvs`
141
142

  - `frag_auth_op``frac_auth_frag_op`
143
144
145
  - `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 committed
146
* `namespaces` has been moved to std++.
147
148
* 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

149
* `wp_fork` is now written in curried form.
150
* `PureExec`/`wp_pure` now supports taking multiple steps at once.
Jacques-Henri Jourdan's avatar
Jacques-Henri Jourdan committed
151
152
153
* 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.

154
* Add `big_sepM_insert_acc`.
155
156
157
158
* 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
159
160
161
* 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
162
163
164
* 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.

165
* Export the fact that `iPreProp` is a COFE.
166
167
168
169
170
171
172
* 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.
173
174
* Add a COFE construction (and functor) on dependent pairs `sigTO`, dual to
  `discrete_funO`.

* 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.
191
192
* Changed `frac_auth` notation from `●!`/`◯!` to `●F`/`◯F`. sed script:
  `s/◯!/◯F/g; s/●!/●F/g;`.
193
194
* Lemma `prop_ext` works in both directions; its default direction is the
  opposite of what it used to be.
195
* 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`.
200
* Rename `C` suffixes into `O` since we no longer use COFEs but OFEs. Also

* Define `uPred` as a quotient on monotone predicates `M -> SProp`.

265
266
* Get rid of some primitive laws; they can be derived:
  `True ⊢ □ True` and `□ (P ∧ Q) ⊢ □ (P ∗ Q)`
267
* Camera morphisms have to be homomorphisms, not just monotone functions.

* Add a proof that `f` has a fixed point if `f^k` is contractive.
269

* [Experimental feature] Support verifying code that might get stuck by
  distinguishing "non-stuck" vs. "(potentially) stuck" weakest
  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`.

* 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.

* Fix a bunch of consistency issues in the proof mode, and make it overall more
  usable.  In particular:
340
341
342
343
344
345
346
347
348
349
  - 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.

356
357
  - 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.

* Make `ofe_fun` dependently typed, subsuming `iprod`.  The latter got removed.

* 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.

368
* Restore the original, stronger notion of atomicity alongside the weaker
  notion. These are `Atomic a e` where the stuckness bit `s` indicates whether
369
370
  expression `e` is weakly (`a = WeaklyAtomic`) or strongly
  (`a = StronglyAtomic`) atomic.
371
372
373
374
* 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.
375
* The rules `internal_eq_rewrite` and `internal_eq_rewrite_contractive` are now
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
376
  stated in the logic, i.e., they are `iApply`-friendly.

* There now is a deprecation process.  The modules `*.deprecated` contain
  deprecated notations and definitions that are provided for backwards
  compatibility and will be removed in a future version of Iris.

383
* View shifts are radically simplified to just internalize frame-preserving
384
  updates.  Weakestpre is defined inside the logic, and invariants and view
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
385
  shifts with masks are also coded up inside Iris.  Adequacy of weakestpre is
386
  proven in the logic. The old ownership of the entire physical state is
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
387
388
  replaced by a user-selected predicate over physical state that is maintained
  by weakestpre.
389
* Use OFEs instead of COFEs everywhere.  COFEs are only used for solving the
390
391
  recursive domain equation.  As a consequence, CMRAs no longer need a proof of
  completeness.  (The old `cofeT` is provided by `algebra.deprecated`.)
392
* Implement a new agreement construction.  Unlike the old one, this one
393
394
  preserves discreteness.  dec_agree is thus no longer needed and has been moved
  to algebra.deprecated.
395
396
397
* 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.
398
399
400
401
* 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``.

402
403
404
* 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
405
  ⌜φ⌝.  Also removed `=` and `⊥` from the Iris scope.  (The old notations are
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
406
  provided in `base_logic.deprecated`.)
407
* Up-closure of namespaces is now a notation (↑) instead of a coercion.
408
409
* 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.

410
* The language can now fork off multiple threads at once.
411
412
* 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.
420
421
* [program_logic/language] The language does not define its own "atomic"
  predicate.  Instead, atomicity is defined as reducing in one step to a value.
422
423
424
425
426
* [program_logic] Due to a lack of maintenance and usefulness, lifting lemmas
  for Hoare triples are removed.
