Fedora 9 Update: why-2.17-1.fc9



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2008-11905
2008-12-30 22:33:43
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : why
Product     : Fedora 9
Version     : 2.17
Release     : 1.fc9
URL         : http://why.lri.fr/
Summary     : Why software verification platform
Description :
Why is a software verification platform that applies formal proving
tools to annotated programs. It is currently capable of analysis of C
(through the included tool "Caduceus"), Java (through the included
tool "Krakatoa"), and potentially ML programs with some modification
into Why's own ML-like language. Furthermore, Why is capable of
analysis of any program that is mapped onto its own internal
language. It uses a weakest precondition involving calculus to
generate potential theorems necessary for the proof of a program's
correctness. It translates these theorems into formats that can be
used by external proof assistants (without any extra work, Coq, PVS,
HOL Light, Mizar are supported - having one is recommended and Coq is
packaged for Fedora) and automated theorem provers (without any extra
work, Simplify, Alt-Ergo, Yices, Z3, CVC Lite, Zenon are supported and
Zenon is packaged for Fedora) so that these results can be externally
proven, resulting in a proof of program correctness.

ChangeLog:

* Wed Dec 24 2008 Alan Dunn <amdunn gmail com> 2.17-1
- Upgrade to version 2.17 (bz: 477790)
- Add ownership of two directories common with Coq, but neither program requires the other (bz: 474016)
- Minor filename change in 2.17 (GPL -> LICENSE)
- Added back Coq .v files to match policy for Coq
- Changed directory structure re: jessie and krakatoa to match new structure in 2.17
- Minor changes to patches to ensure they still work in 2.17
- Corrected package location gwhy-icon.png (should only be in gwhy)
