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
[#] still need to be ported to the Iris Documentation LaTeX file(s).
## Iris 3.0
# Lifting lemmas do no longer take as hypothesis the fact the the
considered expression is not a value. This is deduced from the fact that
it is reducible.
* View shifts are radically simplified to just internalize frame-preserving
updates. Weakestpre is defined inside the logic, and invariants and view
shifts with masks are also coded up inside Iris. Adequacy of weakestpre
is proven in the logic.
* 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.
* The language can now fork off multiple threads at once.
* Local Updates (for the authoritative monoid) are now a 4-way relation
with syntax-directed lemmas proving them.
## Iris 2.0
* [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.
* [program_logic/language] The language does not define its own "atomic"
predicate. Instead, atomicity is defined as reducing in one step to a value.
* [program_logic] Due to a lack of maintenance and usefulness, lifting lemmas
for Hoare triples are removed.
## Iris 2.0-rc2
This version matches the final ICFP paper.
* [algebra] Make the core of an RA or CMRA a partial function.
* [program_logic/lifting] Lifting lemmas no longer round-trip through a
user-chosen predicate to define the configurations we can reduce to; they
directly relate to the operational semantics. This is equivalent and
much simpler to read.
## Iris 2.0-rc1
This is the Coq development and Iris Documentation as submitted to ICFP.
