Changelog for idris-0.10.2

New in 0.11: ============ Updated export rules -------------------- * The export rules are: - 'private' means that the definition is not exported at all - 'export' means that the top level type is exported, but not the definition. In the case of 'data', this means the type constructor is exported but not the data constructors. - 'public export' means that the entire definition is exported. * By default, names are 'private'. This can be altered with an %access directive as before. * Exported types can only refer to other exported names * Publicly exported definitions can only refer to publicly exported names Improved C FFI -------------- * Idris functions can now be passed as callbacks to C functions or wrapped in a C function pointer. * C function pointers can be called. * Idris can access pointers to C globals. Minor language changes ---------------------- * The '[static]' annotation is changed to '%static' to be consistent with the other annotations. * Added '%auto_implicits' directive. The default is '%auto_implicits on'. Placing '%auto_implicits off' in a source file means that after that point, any implicit arguments must be bound, e.g.: append : {n,m,a:_} -> Vect n a -> Vect m a -> Vect (n + m) a Only names which are used explicitly in the type need to be bound, e.g.: Here : {x, xs : _} -> Elem x (x :: xs) In 'Here', there is no need to bind any of the variables in the type of 'xs' (it could be e.g. List a or Vect n a; 'a' and 'n' will still be implicitly bound). You can still implicitly bind with 'using': using (xs : Vect _ _) data Elem : {a, n : _} -> a -> Vect n a -> Type where Here : {x : _} -> Elem x (x :: xs) There : {x, y : _} -> Elem x xs -> Elem x (y :: xs) However, note that *only* names which appear in *both* the using block *and* the type being defined will be implicitly bound. The following will therefore fail because 'n' isn't implicitly bound: using (xs : Vect n a) bad : Elem x xs -> Elem x (y :: xs) * `Sigma` has been renamed to `DPair`. * Accessor functions for dependent pairs have been renamed to bring them into line with standard accessor functions for pairs. The function `getWitness` is now `fst`, and `getProof` is `snd`. * File Modes expanded: Append, ReadWriteTruncate, and ReadAppend added, Write is deprecated and renamed to WriteTruncate. * C11 Extended Mode variations added to File Modes. * More flexible holes. Holes can now depend on other holes in a term (such as implicit arguments which may be inferred from the definition of the hole). New in 0.10: ============ * 'class' and 'instance' are now deprecated keywords. They have been replaced by 'interface' and 'implementation' respectively. This is to properly reflect their purpose. * (/) operator moved into new Fractional interface. * Idris' logging infrastructure has been categorised. Command line and repl are available. For command line the option `--logging-categories CATS` is used to pass in the categories. Here `CATS` is a colon separated quoted string containing the categories to log. The REPL command is `logcats CATS`. Where `CATS` is a whitespace separated list of categoriese. Default is for all categories to be logged. * New flag `--listlogcats` to list logging categories.` New in 0.9.20: ============== Language updates ---------------- * Improved unification by implementing a pattern unification rule * The syntax `{{n}} quotes n without resolving it, allowing short syntax for defining new names. `{n} still quotes n to an existing name in scope. * A new primitive operator prim__strSubstr for more efficient extraction of substrings. External code generators should implement this. * The previous syntax for tactic proofs and the previous interactive prover are now deprecated in favour of reflected elaboration. They will be removed at some point in the future. * Changed scoping rules for unbound implicits: any name which would be a valid unbound implicit is now *always* an unbound implicit. This is much more resilient to changes in inputs, but does require that function names be explicitly qualified when in argument position. * Name binding in patterns follows the same rule as name binding for implicits in types: names which begin with lower case letters, not applied to any arguments, are treated as bound pattern variables. * Added %deprecate directive, which gives a warning and a message when a deprecated name is referenced. Library updates --------------- * The 'Neg' class now represents numeric types which can be negative. As such, the (-) operator and 'abs' have been moved there from 'Num'. * A special version of (-) on 'Nat' requires that the second argument is smaller than or equal to the first. 'minus' retains the old behaviour, returning Z if there is an underflow. * The (+), (-), and (*) operations on Fin have been removed. * New Logging Effects have been added to facilitate logging of effectful programmes. * Elaborator reflection is now a part of the prelude. It is no longer necessary to import Language.Reflection.Elab. * The `PERF` effect allows for simple performance metrics to be collected from Effectful programs. * Some constructors that never actually occurred have been removed from the TT and Raw reflection datatypes in Language.Reflection. * File IO operations (for example openFile/fread/fwrite) now return 'Either FileError ty' where the return type was previously 'ty' to indicate that they may fail. Tool updates ------------ * Records are now shown as records in :doc, rather than as the underlying datatype * iPKG files have a new option `pkgs` which takes a comma-separated list of package names that the idris project depends on. This reduces bloat in the `opts` option with multiple package declarations. * iPKG files now allow `executable = "your filename here"` in addition to the existing `executable = yourFilenameHere` style. While the unquoted version is limited to filenames that look like namespaced Idris identifiers (``), the quoted version accepts any valid filename. * Add definition command (\d in Vim, Ctrl-Alt-A in Atom, C-c C-s in Emacs) now adds missing clauses if there is already a definition. Miscellaneous updates --------------------- * Disable the deprecation warnings for %elim and old-style tactic scripts with the --no-elim-deprecation-warnings and --no-tactic-deprecation-warnings flags. New in 0.9.19: -------------- * The Idris Reference manual has been fleshed out with content originally found on the GitHub wiki. * The Show class has been moved into Prelude.Show and augmented with the method showPrec, which allows correct parenthesization of showed terms. This comes with the type Prec of precedences and a few helper functions. * New REPL command :printerdepth that sets the pretty-printer to only descend to some particular depth when printing. The default is set to a high number to make it less dangerous to experiment with infinite structures. Infinite depth can be set by calling :printerdepth with no argument. * Compiler output shows applications of >>= in do-notation * fromInteger i where i is an integer constant is now shown just as i in compiler output * An interactive shell, similar to the prover, for running reflected elaborator actions. Access it with :elab from the REPL. * New command-line option --highlight that causes Idris to save highlighting information when successfully type checking. The information is in the same format sent by the IDE mode, and is saved in a file with the extension ".idh". * Highlighting information is saved by the parser as well, allowing it to highlight keywords like "case", "of", "let", and "do" * Use predicates instead of boolean equality proofs as preconditions on List functions * More flexible 'case' construct, allowing each branch to target different types, provided that the case analysis does not affect the form of any variable used in the right hand side of the case. * Some improvements in interactive editing, particularly in lifting out definitions and proof search. * Moved System.Interactive, along with getArgs to the Prelude. * Major improvements to reflected elaboration scripts, including the ability to run them in a declaration context and many bug fixes. * "decl syntax" rules to allow syntax extensions at the declaration level * Experimental Windows support for console colours New in 0.9.18: -------------- * GHC 7.10 compatibility * Add support for bundled toolchains. * Strings are now UTF8 encoded in the default back end * Idris source files are now assumed to be in UTF8, regardless of locale settings. * Some reorganisation of primitives: + Buffer and BitVector primitives have been removed (they were not tested sufficiently, and lack a maintainer) + Float has been renamed 'Double' (Float is defined in the Prelude for compatibility) + Externally defined primitives and operations now supported with '%extern' directive, allowing back ends to define their own special purpose primitives + Ptr and ManagedPtr have been removed and replaced with external primitives * Add %hint function annotation, which allows functions to be used as hints in proof search for 'auto' arguments. Only functions which return an instance of a data or record type are allowed as hints. * Syntax rules no longer perform variable capture. Users of effects will need to explicitly name results in dependent effect signatures instead of using the default name "result". * Pattern-matching lambdas are allowed to be impossible. For example, Dec (2 = 3) can now be constructed with No $ \(Refl) impossible, instead of requiring a separate lemma. * Case alternatives are allowed to be impossible: case Vect.Nil {a=Nat} of { (x::xs) impossible ; [] => True } * The default Semigroup and Monoid instances for Maybe are now prioritised choice, keeping the first success as Alternative does. The version that collects successes is now a named instance. * :exec REPL command now takes an optional expression to compile and run/show * The return types of `Vect.findIndex`, `Vect.elemIndex` and `Vect.elemIndexBy` were changed from `Maybe Nat` to `Maybe (Fin n)` * A new :browse command shows the contents of a namespace * `{n} is syntax for a quotation of the reflected representation of the name "n". If "n" is lexically bound, then the resulting quotation will be for it, whereas if it is not, then it will succeed with a quotation of the unique global name that matches. * New syntax for records that closely matches our other record-like structures: type classes. See the updated tutorial for details. * Records can be coinductive. Define coinductive records with the "corecord" keyword. * Type class constructors can be assigned user-accessible names. This is done using the same syntax as record constructors. * if ... then ... else ... is now built-in syntax instead of being defined in a library. It is shown in REPL output and error messages, rather than its desugaring. * The desugaring of if ... then ... else ... has been renamed to ifThenElse from boolElim. This is for consistency with GHC Haskell and scala-virtualized, and to reflect that if-notation makes sense with non-Bool datatypes. * Agda-style semantic highlighting is supported over the IDE protocol. * Experimental support for elaborator reflection. Users can now script the elaborator, for use in code generation and proof automation. This feature is still under rapid development and is subject to change without notice. See Language.Reflection.Elab and the %runElab constructs New in 0.9.17: -------------- * The --ideslave command line option has been replaced with a --ide-mode command line option with the same semantics. * A new tactic "claim N TY" that introduces a new hole named N with type TY * A new tactic "unfocus" that moves the current hole to the bottom of the hole stack * Quasiquotation supports the generation of Language.Reflection.Raw terms in addition to Language.Reflection.TT. Types are used for disambiguation, defaulting to TT at the REPL. * Language.Reflection.Quotable now takes an extra type parameter which determines the type to be quoted to. Instances are provided to quote common types to both TT and Raw. * Library operators have been renamed for consistency with Haskell. In particular, Applicative.(<$>) is now Applicative.(<*>) and (<$>) is now an alias for Correspondingly, ($>) and (<$) have been renamed to (<*) and (*>). The cascading effects of this rename are that Algebra.(<*>) has been renamed to Algebra.(<.>) and Matrix.(<.>) is now Matrix.(<:>). * Binding forms in DSL notation are now given an extra argument: a reflected representation of the name that the user chose. Specifically, the rewritten lambda, pi, and let binders will now get an extra argument of type TTName. This allows more understandable dynamic errors in DSL code and more readable code generation results. * DSL notation can now be applied with $ * Added FFI_Export type which allows Idris functions to be exportoed and called from foreign code * Instances can now have documentation strings. * Type providers can have documentation strings. * Unification errors now (where possible) contain information about provenance of a type * New REPL command ":core TM" that shows the elaborated form of TM along with its elaborated type using the syntax of TT. IDE mode has a corresponding command :elaborate-term for serialized terms. * Effectful and IO function names for sending data to STDOUT have been aligned, semantically. + `print` is now for putting showable things to STDOUT. + `printLn` is for putting showable things to STDOUT with a new line + `putCharLn` for putting a single character to STDOUT, with a new line. * Classes can now be annotated with 'determining parameters' to say which must be available before resolving instances. Only determining parameters are checked when checking for overlapping instances. * New package 'contrib' containing things that are less mature or less used than the contents of 'base'. 'contrib' is not available by default, so you may need to add '-p contrib' to your .ipkg file or Idris command line. * Arguments to class instances are now checked for injectivity. Unification assumes this, so we need to check when instances are defined. New in 0.9.16: -------------- * Inductive-inductive definitions are now supported (i.e. simultaneously defined types where one is indexed by the other.) * Implicits and type class constraints can now appear in scopes other than the top level. * Importing a module no longer means it is automatically reexported. A new "public" modifier has been added to import statements, which will reexport the names exported from that module. * Implemented @-patterns. A pattern of the form x@p on the left hand side matches p, with x in scope on the right hand side with value p. * A new tactic sourceLocation that fills the current hole with the current source code span, if this information is available. If not, it raises an error. * Better Unicode support for the JavaScript/Node codegen * ':search' and ':apropos' commands can now be given optional package lists to search. * Vect, Fin and So moved out of prelude into base, in modules Data.Vect, Data.Fin and Data.So respectively. * Several long-standing issues resolved, particularly with pattern matching and coverage checking. * Modules can now have API documentation strings. New in 0.9.15: -------------- * Two new tactics: skip and fail. Skip does nothing, and fail takes a string as an argument and produces it as an error. * Corresponding reflected tactics Skip and Fail. Reflected Fail takes a list of ErrorReportParts as an argument, like error handlers produce, allowing access to the pretty-printer. * Stop showing irrelevant and inaccessible internal names in the interactive prover. * The proof arguments in the List library functions are now implicit and solved automatically. * More efficient representation of proof state, leading to faster elaboration of large expressions. * EXPERIMENTAL Implementation of uniqueness types * Unary negation now desugars to "negate", which is a method of the Neg type class. This allows instances of Num that can't be negative, like Nat, and it makes correct IEEE Float operations easier to encode. Additionally, unary negation is now available to DSL authors. * The Java and LLVM backends have been factored out for separate maintenance. Now, the compiler distribution only ships with the C and JavaScript backends. * New REPL command :printdef displays the internal definition of a name * New REPL command :pprint pretty-prints a definition or term with LaTeX or HTML highlighting * Naming of data and type constructors is made consistent across the standard library (see #1516) * Terms in `code blocks` inside of documentation strings are now parsed and type checked. If this succeeds, they are rendered in full color in documentation lookups, and with semantic highlighting for IDEs. * Fenced code blocks in docs defined with the "example" attribute are rendered as code examples. * Fenced code blocks declared to be Idris code that fail to parse or type check now provide error messages to IDE clients. * EXPERIMENTAL support for partial evaluation (Scrapping your Inefficient Engine style) New in 0.9.14: -------------- * Tactic for case analysis in proofs * Induction and case tactic now work on expressions * Support for running tests for a package with the tests section of .ipkg files and the --testpkg command-line option * Clearly distinguish between type providers and postulate providers at the use site * Allow dependent function syntax to be overridden in dsl blocks, similarly to functions and let. The keyword for this is "pi". * Updated 'effects' library, with simplified API * All new JavaScript backend (avoids callstack overflows) * Add support for %lib directive for NodeJS * Quasiquotes and quasiquote patterns allow easier work with reflected terms. `(EXPR) quasiquotes EXPR, causing the elaborator to be used to produce a reflected version of it. Subterms prefixed with ~ are unquoted - on the RHS, they are reflected terms to splice in, while on the LHS they are patterns. A quasiquote expression can be given a goal type for the elaborator, which helps with disambiguation. For instance, `(() : ()) quotes the unit constructor, while `(() : Type) quotes the unit type. Both goal types and quasiquote are typechecked in the global environment. * Better inference of unbound implicits New in 0.9.13: -------------- * IDE support for retrieving structured information about metavariables * Experimental Bits support for JavaScript * IdrisDoc: a Haddock- and JavaDoc-like HTML documentation generator * Command line option -e (or --eval) to evaluate expressions without loading the REPL. This is useful for writing more portable tests. * Many more of the basic functions and datatypes are documented. * Primitive types such as Int and String are documented * Removed javascript lib in favor of idris-hackers/iQuery * Specify codegen for :compile REPL command (e.g. :compile javascript program.js) * Remove :info REPL command, subsume and enhance its functionality in the :doc command * New (first class) nested record update/access syntax: record { a->b->c = val } x -- sets field accessed by c (b (a x)) to val record { a->b->c } x -- accesses field, equivalent to c (b (a x)) * The banner at startup can be suppressed by adding :set nobanner to the initialisation script. * :apropos now accepts space-delimited lists of query items, and searches for the conjunction of its inputs. It also accepts binder syntax as search strings - for instance, -> finds functions. * Totality errors are now treated as warnings until code generation time, when they become errors again. This allows users to use the interactive editing features to fix totality issues, but no programs that violate the stated assumptions will actually run. * Added :makelemma command, which adds a new top level definition to solve a metavariable. * Extend :addclause to add instance bodies as well as definitions * Reverse parameters to BoundedList -- now matches Vect, and is easier to instantiate classes. * Move foldl into Foldable so it can be overridden. * Experimental :search REPL command for finding functions by type Internal changes * New implementation of erasure New in 0.9.12: -------------- * Proof search now works for metavariables in types, giving some interactive type inference. * New 'Lazy' type, replacing laziness annotations. * JavaScript and Node codegen now understand the %include directive. * Concept of 'null' is now understood in the JavaScript and Node codegen. * Lots of performance patches for generated JavaScript. * New commands :eval (:e) and :type (:t) in the prover, which either normalise or show the type of expressions. * Allow type providers to return postulates in addition to terms. * Syntax for dealing with match failure in <- and pattern matching let. * New syntax for inline documentation. Documentation starts with |||, and arguments are documented by preceding their name with @. Example: ||| Add two natural numbers ||| @ n the first number (examined by the function) ||| @ m the second number (not examined) plus (n, m : Nat) -> Nat * Allow the auto-solve behaviour in the prover to be disabled, for easier debugging of proof automation. Use ":set autosolve" and ":unset autosolve". * Updated 'effects' library * New :apropos command at REPL to search documentation, names, and types * Unification errors are now slightly more informative * Support mixed induction/coinduction with 'Inf' type * Add 'covering' function option, which checks whether a function and all descendants cover all possible inputs New in 0.9.11: -------------- * Agda-style equational reasoning (in Syntax.PreorderReasoning) * 'case' construct now abstracts over the scrutinee in its type * Added label type 'name (equivalent to the empty type). This is intended for field/effect disambiguation. "name" can be any valid identifier. Two labels are definitionally equal if they have the same name. * General improvements in error messages, especially %error_reverse annotation, which allows a hint as to how to display a term in error messages * --ideslave mode now transmits semantic information about many of the strings that it emits, which can be used by clients to implement semantic highlighting like that of the REPL. This has been implemented in the Emacs mode and the IRC bot, which can serve as examples. * New expression form: with NAME EXPR privileges the namespace NAME when disambiguating overloaded names. For example, it is possible to write "with Vect [1,2,3]" at the REPL instead of "the (Vect _ _) [1,2,3]", because the Vect constructors are defined in a namespace called Vect. * assert_smaller internal function, which marks an expression as smaller than a pattern for use in totality checking. e.g. "assert_smaller (x :: xs) (f xs)" asserts that "f xs" will always be structurally smaller than "(x :: xs)" * assert_total internal function, which marks a subexpression as assumed to be total, e.g "assert_total (tail (x :: xs))". * Terminal width is automatically detected if Idris is compiled with curses support. If curses is not available, automatic mode assumes 80 columns. * Changed argument order for Prelude.Either.either. * Experimental 'neweffects' library, intended to replace 'effects' in the next release. Internal changes * Faster elaboration * Smaller .ibc files * Pretty-printer now used for all term output New in 0.9.10: -------------- * Type classes now implemented as dependent records, meaning that method types may now depend on earlier methods. * More flexible class instance resolution, so that function types and lambda expressions can be made instances of a type class. * Add !expr notation for implicit binding of intermediate results in monadic/do/etc expressions. * Extend Effects package to cope with possibly failing operations, using "if_valid", "if_error", etc. * At the REPL, "it" now refers to the previous expression. * Semantic colouring at the REPL. Turn this off with --nocolour. * Some prettifying of error messages. * The contents of ~/.idris/repl/init are run at REPL start-up. * The REPL stores a command history in ~/.idris/repl/history. * The [a..b], [a,b..c], [a..], and [a,b..] syntax now pass the totality checker and can thus be used in types. The [x..] syntax now returns an actually infinite stream. * Add '%reflection' option for functions, for compile-time operations on syntax. * Add expression form 'quoteGoal x by p in e' which applies p to the expected expression type and binds the result to x in the scope e. * Performance improvements in Strings library. * Library reorganisation, separated into prelude/ and base/. Internal changes * New module/dependency tree checking. * New parser implementation with more precise errors. * Improved type class resolution. * Compiling Nat via GMP integers. * Performance improvements in elaboration. * Improvements in termination checking. * Various REPL commands to support interactive editing, and a client/server mode to allow external invocation of REPL commands. New in 0.9.9: ------------- * Apply functions by return type, rather than with arguments: "t <== f" means "apply f with arguments such that it returns a value of type t" * Allow the result type of a rewrite to be specified * Allow names to be attached to provisional definitions lhs ?= {name} rhs -- generates a lemma called 'name' which makes the types of the lhs and rhs match. {name} is optional - a unique name is generated if it is absent. * Experimental LLVM backend * Added Data.HVect module * Fix fromInteger to take an Integer, rather than an Int * Integer literals for Fin * Renamed O to Z, and fO to fZ * Swapped Vect arguments, now Vect : Nat -> Type -> Type * Added DecEq instances * Add 'equiv' tactic, which rewrites a goal to an equivalent (convertible) goal Internal changes * Add annotation for unification traces * Add 'mrefine' tactic for refining by matching against a type * Type class resolution fixes * Much faster coverage checking New in 0.9.8: ------------- User visible changes: * Added "rewrite ... in ..." construct * Allow type class constraints in 'using' clauses * Renamed EFF to EFFECT in Effect package * Experimental Java backend * Tab completion in REPL * Dynamic loading of C libraries in the interpreter * Testing IO actions at the REPL with :x command * Improve rendering of :t * Fixed some INTERNAL ERROR messages Internal changes: * Fix non-linear pattern checking * Improved name disambiguation * More flexible unification and elaboration of lambdas * Various unification and totality checking bug fixes New in 0.9.7: ------------- User visible changes: * 'implicit' keyword, for implicit type conversion * Added Effects package * Primitives for 8,16,32 and 64 bit integers Internal changes: * Change unification so that it keeps track of failed constraints in case later information helps to resolve them * Distinguishing parameters and indices in data types * Faster termination/coverage checking * Split 'javascript' target into 'javascript' and 'node' New in 0.9.6: ------------- User visible changes: * The type of types is now 'Type' rather than 'Set' * Forward declarations of data allowed - supporting induction recursion and mutually recursive data * Type inference of definitions in 'where' clauses - Provided that the type can be completely determined from the first application of the function (in the top level definition) * 'mutual' blocks added - effect is to elaborate all types of declarations in the block before elaborating their definitions - allows inductive-recursive definitions * Expression inspected by 'with' clause now abstracted from the goal - i.e. "magic" with * Implicit arguments will be added automatically only if their initial letter is lower case, or they are in a using declaration * Added documentation comments (Haddock style) and ':doc' REPL command * Pattern matching on strings, big integers and characters * Added System.Concurrency modules * Added 'postulate' declarations * Allow type annotations on 'let' tactic * EXPERIMENTAL JavaScript generation, with '--target javascript' option Internal changes: * Separate inlining methods at compile-time and run-time * Fixed nested parameters blocks * Improve efficiency of elaborator by: - only normalising when necessary - reducing backtracking with resolving ambiguities * Better compilation of case trees New in 0.9.5: ------------- User visible changes: * Added codata - as data declarations, but constructor arguments are evaluated lazily - functions which return a codata type do not reduce at compile time * Added 'parameters' blocks * Allow local data definitions in where blocks * Added '%default' directive to declare total-by-default or partial-by-default for functions, and a corresponding "partial" reserved words to mark functions as allowed to be partial. Also "--total" and "--partial" added as command line options. * Command line option "--warnpartial" for flagging all undeclared partial functions, without error. * New termination checker supporting mutually recursive definitions. * Added ':load' command to REPL, for loading a new file * Added ':module' command to REPL, for adding modules * Renamed library modules (now have initial capital) Internal changes: * Several improvements and fixes to unification * Added collapsing optimisation and more aggressive erasure New in 0.9.4: ------------- User visible changes: * Simple packaging system * Added --dumpc flag for displaying generated code Internal changes: * Improve overloading resolution (especially where this is a type error) * Various important bug fixes with evaluation and compilation * More aggressive compile-time evaluation New in 0.9.3: ------------- User visible changes: * Added binding forms to syntax rules * Named class instances * Added ':set' command, with options 'errorcontext' for displaying local variables in scope when a unification error occurs, and 'showimplicits' for displaying elaborated terms in full * Added '--errorcontext' command line switch * Added ':proofs' and ':rmproofs' commands * Various minor REPL improvements and fixes Internal changes: * Completely new run time system (not based on Epic or relying on Boehm GC) * Normalise before forcing to catch more forceable arguments * Types no longer exported in normal form * Try to resolve overloading by inspecting types, rather than full type checking New in 0.9.2: ------------- User visible changes: * backtick notation added: x `foo` y ==> foo x y * case expressions allowed in type signatures * Library extensions in prelude.vect and prelude.algebra * malloc/trace_malloc added to builtins.idr Internal changes: * Some type class resolution fixes * Several minor bug fixes * Performance improvements in resolving overloading and type classes New in 0.9.1: ------------- User visible changes: * DSL notation, for overloading lambda and let bindings * Dependent records, with projection and update * Totality checking and 'total' keyword * Auto implicits and default argument values {auto n : T}, {default val n : T} * Overlapping type class instances disallowed * Many extensions to prelude.nat and prelude.list libraries (mostly thanks to Dominic Mulligan) * New libraries: control.monad.identity, control.monad.state * Small improvements in error reporting Internal changes: * Faster compilation (only compiling names which are used) * Better type class resolution * Lots of minor bug fixes 0.1.x to 0.9.0: Complete rewrite. User visible changes: * New proof/tactics syntax * New syntax for pairs/dependent pairs * Indentation-significant syntax * Added type classes * Added where clauses * Added case expressions, pattern matching let and lambda * Added monad comprehensions * Added cumulativity and universe checking * Ad-hoc name overloading - Resolved by type or explicit namespace * Modules (Haskell-style) * public, abstract and private access to functions and types * Separate type-checking * Improved interactive environment * Replaced 'do using' with Monad class * Extended syntax macros Internal changes: * Everything :-) * All definitions (functions, classes and instances) are elaborated to top level, fully explicit, data declarations and pattern matching definitions, which are verified by a minimal type checker. This is the first release of a complete reimplementation. There will be bugs. If you find any, please do not hesitate to contact Edwin Brady (
