This file lists "large-ish" changes to the std++ Coq library, but not every
API-breaking change is listed.
## std++ 1.2.0 (released TBA)
Coq 8.9 is supported by this release, but Coq 8.6 is no longer supported. Use
std++ 1.1 if you have to use Coq 8.6. The repository moved to a new location at
https://gitlab.mpi-sws.org/iris/stdpp and automatically generated Coq-doc of
master is available at https://plv.mpi-sws.org/coqdoc/stdpp/.
This release of std++ received contributions by Dan Frumin, Hai Dang, Jan-Oliver
Kaiser, Mackie Loeffel, Maxime Dénès, Ralf Jung, Robbert Krebbers, and Tej
Chajed.
New features:
- New notations `=@{A}`, `≡@{A}`, `∈@{A}`, `∉@{A}`, `##@{A}`, `⊆@{A}`, `⊂@{A}`,
`⊑@{A}`, `≡ₚ@{A}` for being explicit about the type.
- A definition of basic telescopes `tele` and some theory about them.
- A simple type class based canceler `NatCancel` for natural numbers.
- A type `binder` for anonymous and named binders to be used in program language
definitions with string-based binders.
- More results about `set_fold` on sets and multisets.
- Notions of infinite and finite predicates/sets and basic theory about them.
- New operation `map_seq`.
- The symmetric and reflexive/transitive/symmetric closure of a relation (`sc`
and `rtsc`, respectively).
- Different notions of confluence (diamond property, confluence, local
confluence) and the relations between these.
- A `size` function for finite maps and prove some properties.
- More results about `Qp` fractions.
- More miscellaneous results about sets, maps, lists, multisets.
- Various type class utilities, e.g. `TCEq`, `TCIf`, `TCDiag`, `NoBackTrack` and
`tc_to_bool`.
- Generalize `gset_to_propset` to `set_to_propset` for any `SemiSet`.
Changes:
- Consistently use `lia` instead of `omega` everywhere.
- Consistently block `simpl` on all `Z` operations.
- The `Infinite` class is now defined using a function `fresh : list A → A`
that given a list `xs`, gives an element `fresh xs ∉ xs`.
- Make `default` an abbreviation for `from_option id` (instead of just swapping
the argument order of `from_option`).
- More efficient `Countable` instance for `list` that is linear instead of
exponential.
- Improve performance of `set_solver` significantly by introducing specialized
type class `SetUnfoldElemOf` for propositions involving `∈`.
- Make `gset` a `Definition` instead of a `Notation` to improve performance.
- Use `disj_union` (notation `⊎`) for disjoint union on multisets (that adds the
multiplicities). Repurpose `∪` on multisets for the actual union (that takes
the max of the multiplicities).
Naming:
- Consistently use the `set` prefix instead of the `collection` prefix for
definitions and lemmas.
- Renaming of classes:
+ `Collection` into `Set_` (`_` since `Set` is a reserved keyword)
+ `SimpleCollection` into `SemiSet`
+ `FinCollection` into `FinSet`
+ `CollectionMonad` into `MonadSet`
- Types:
+ `set A := A → Prop` into `propset`
+ `bset := A → bool` into `boolset`.
- Files:
+ `collections.v` into `sets.v`
+ `fin_collections.v` into `fin_sets.v`
+ `bset` into `boolset`
+ `set` into `propset`
- Consistently use the naming scheme `X_to_Y` for conversion functions, e.g.
`list_to_map` instead of the former `map_of_list`.
The following `sed` script should perform most of the renaming:

## std++ 1.1.0 (released 2017-12-19)
Coq 8.5 is no longer supported by this release of std++. Use std++ 1.0 if you
have to use Coq 8.5.
New features:
- Many new lemmas about lists, vectors, sets, maps.
- Equivalence proofs between std++ functions and their alternative in the the
Coq standard library, e.g. `List.nth`, `List.NoDop`.
- Typeclass versions of the logical connectives and list predicates:
`TCOr`, `TCAnd`, `TCTrue`, `TCForall`, `TCForall2`.
- A function `tc_opaque` to make definitions type class opaque.
- A type class `Infinite` for infinite types.
- A generic implementation to obtain fresh elements of infinite types.
- More theory about curry and uncurry functions on `gmap`.
- A generic `filter` and `zip_with` operation on finite maps.
- A type of generic trees for showing that arbitrary types are countable.
Changes:
- Get rid of `Automatic Coercions Import`, it is deprecated.
Also get rid of `Set Asymmetric Patterns`.
- Various changes and improvements to `f_equiv` and `solve_proper`.
- `Hint Mode` is now set for all operational type classes to make instance
search less likely to diverge.
- New type class `RelDecision` for decidable relations, and `EqDecision` is
defined in terms of it. This class allows to set `Hint Mode` properly.
- Use the flag `assert` of `Arguments` to make it more robust.
- The functions `imap` and `imap2` on lists are defined so that they enjoy more
definitional equalities.
- Theory about `fin` is moved to its own file `fin.v`.
- Rename `preserving` → `mono`.
Changes to notations:
- Operational type classes for lattice notations: `⊑`,`⊓`, `⊔`, `⊤` `⊥`.
- Replace `⊥` for disjointness with `##`, so that `⊥` can be used for the
bottom lattice element.
- All notations are now in `stdpp_scope` with scope key `stdpp`
(formerly `C_scope` and `C`).
- Higher precedence for `.1` and `.2` that is compatible with ssreflect.
- Various changes to monadic notations to improve compatibility with Mtac2:
+ Pattern matching notation for monadic bind `'pat ← x; y` where `pat` can
be any Coq pattern.
+ Change the level of the do-notation.
+ `<$>` is left associative.
+ Notation `x ;; y` for `_ ← x; y`.
## History
Coq-std++ has originally been developed by Robbert Krebbers as part of his
formalization of the C programming language in his PhD thesis, called
[CH2O](http://robbertkrebbers.nl/thesis.html). After that, Coq-std++ has been
part of the [Iris project](http://iris-project.org), and has continued to be
developed by Robbert Krebbers, Ralf Jung, and Jacques Henri-Jourdan.
