What's New in Rodin 3.4?

Rodin 3.4 is mostly contains bug fixes, and upgrades the underlying Eclipse to Oxygen 4.7.2.

Eclipse 4.7.2 fixes a bug that affected the proving interface for MacOS users (bug #771) and was requiring a feature patch.

Please note that we no longer provide 32-bit binary versions of the Rodin platform. If needed, it is still possible to build from the source (see Building Rodin Headless).

Changes for plug-in developers

Rodin 3.4 is built on top of Eclipse 4.7.2 (Oxygen), which requires Java 8, just as the previous version (Rodin 3.3 with Eclipse Neon).

There are no API changes within Rodin Core.

Installing

Downloading

Upgrading from a previous version of Rodin 3.x

The recommended way to upgrade is to download the platform afresh. It might be possible to upgrade using the Eclipse mechanism, but we did not test it.

Requirements - Compatibility

  • Configurations supported (and for which binaries are provided)
    • Linux 64-bit
    • Windows 64-bit
    • Mac OS X 64-bit
  • You need to have a 64-bit Java JRE (8 or later) installed on your computer. The Rodin application will not work with a previous version or with a 32-bit JRE.
  • To enhance your proving experience, the eclipse font settings (size, aspect...) are available from the preferences (General > Appearance > Colors and Fonts > Rodin). These settings allow you to modify the properties set on the Event-B Keyboard Text Font which is used in many views of the Proving UI. However, to enjoy these functionalities, you need to install the Brave Sans Mono font on your system. You can download this font from the link here.
  • Linux 64-bit:
package 'libc6-amd64:i386' must be installed, in particular in order to run external prover binaries
depending on the distribution, you could instead need these packages: lib32z1 lib32ncurses5 lib32bz2-1.0
  • Windows 64-bit:
Atelier B provers work more slowly; it can cause ML to not automatically discharge some sequents that it discharges on windows 32-bit, due to its timeout. A workaround is to download a custom profile: DefaultAuto_ML800, then Window > Preferences > Event-B > Sequent Prover > Auto/Post Tactic > Profiles (tab) > Import..., point to the downloaded file, 'Select All' profiles (there are 2), OK. Then in 'Auto/Post Tactic' tab, select 'Default Auto Tactic Profile (ML 800)' profile for auto-tactics. It is the same as the 'Default Auto Tactic Profile', except ML has a longer timeout (800 ms). You can of course change this timeout by editing the 'ML (800)' profile.
We have not noticed this problem for Linux 64-bit, nor for other platforms; however if you do, the same workaround applies.

Disclaimer

Since Rodin is continuously maintained, several unsoundness bugs which have been encountered were investigated and fixed. However, despite the total commitment of our teams to ensure the soundness of the platform, some unexpected and unknown soundness issues could remain. We would be grateful if you would report these issues to the development mailing list.
