              default), to warn when a conversion between pointer and integer
              might provoke a loss of precision.

              several domains at once. The list of available domains is given
              in the help message of the option.

o!  Kernel    [2020-02-04] Removed FCBuffer, FCMap and FCSet. Use directly
139
              OCaml stdlib modules Buffer, Map and Set instead.

              unsound computations and crashes. It may be revealed to the

-*  RTE       [2019-05-24] fixes a crash when visiting variable declarations
-   Eva       [2019-04-19] The new annotation /*@ split exp; */ enumerates the
215
216
217
218
              possible values of an expression and continues the analysis
              for each of these value separately, until a /*@ merge exp; */
              is encountered. It is also possible to maintain this partitioning
              at all times with the option -eva-partition-value exp.
219
-   Eva       [2019-04-19] New option -eva-partition-history N to delay the join
220
221
222
223
              of abstract states for up to N merging points, thus keeping these
              states separate longer. Useful when a reasoning depends on the
              path taken to reach a control point, but can increase the analysis
              time exponentially in N.
224
-   Eva       [2019-04-19] Loop unroll annotations now accept non-constant but
225
              bounded expressions as the maximum number of unrollings to perform.

-*  Kernel    [2019-04-09] Avoid crashing on one-letter attributes. Fixes #2432

228
              Fixes #2433.

              A precision of 5 is often a reasonable trade-off. This meta-option
              automatically sets up other options that can also be overriden.

372
              as open-source.
373
-  Eva        [2018-06-15] When a cvalue builtin is used, other domains use the
374
375
              frama-c libc specification to interpret the call without losing
              too much information.
376
-  Eva        [2018-06-14] The variables from the frama-c libc are no longer

              between two widenings.
383
-  Eva        [2018-04-25] New propagation strategy that allows unrolling loops
384
385
386
387
388
              even when the slevel has been exceeded. Unroll the N first loop
              iterations via the global option -eva-min-loop-unrolling N or via
              specific code annotations /*@ loop unroll N; */. The new strategy
              may affect analyses even without loop unrolling.

566
567
568
              replaced by logic_assign, that interprets one \assigns clause.

588
589
              Allows to re-use logic parser for parsing annotations in external

628

              applies to the new evaluations requested by the equality domain.
630
-* Eva        [2017-06-14] Fix a crash when downcasting pointer values with

643
644
              internal properties about the arguments inferred by each available
              domain whose log category is enabled.
645
o! Eva        [2017-05-22] Abstract domains have to provide a log category and

              -val-ignore-recursive-calls. The support of recursion through
              the use of 'assigns' clauses, previously available in Value,
              was unsound and has been removed

-  Eva        [2017-02-06] New (internal) mechanism to handle C functions'
717

719
-  Variadic   [2017-02-08] The plugin is now enabled by default. Use the
720
721
722
              option -variadic-no-translation to keep the original behaviour.
              The specification generated for the fprintf function family is
              now more accurate.
723
-  Kernel     [2017-01-26] New option -print-libc, to expand include directives
724
              for files in the Frama-C stdlib (no longer expanded by default).
725
726
727
-* Obfuscator [2017-01-19] Fix typo in help message (bts #2269).
-  Kernel     [2017-01-09] Bash completion for Frama-C options. See #@154.

-* Cil        [2016-11-20] Pointer subtractions with arguments of incompatible
732
733
              types are now refused. The resulting expression is typed as
              ptrdiff_t instead of int.
734
-  Value      [2016-11-18] Widen hints directives @widen_hints now accept
735
736
              arbitrary l-values (evaluated at analysis time) in place of
              variables.
737
-* Kernel     [2016-11-17] Fixed some issues with #pragma pack() behavior,
738
739
              in both GCC and MSVC machdeps. Also fixed some related issues
              with __aligned__ and __packed__ attributes (including bts #2249).

741
742
-o Kernel     [2016-11-17] Utility API for checking volatile attribute in Cil.

-  Kernel     [2016-11-07] New option -no-autoload-plugins (equivalent to old
743
              -no-dynlink); mostly for internal use.

-! Kernel     [2016-10-19] Stricter verification for extern, static and inline
745
              specifiers (support for CERT DCL-36-C coding rule)
746
o* Eva        [2016-10-22] Functions Db.Value.fun_set_args and
747
748
              Db.Value.globals_set_initial_state are now compatible with Eva.

-*! Eva       [2016-10-29] Fix soundness bug on statements with RTE or
754
755
756
757
758
              programmatically-added user assertions (bts #2258). This
              leads to minor changes in the way states are propagated when
              all slevel has been consumed. Also, consolidated states now
              return the abstraction before any reduction by assertions or
              alarms.
759
-* Eva        [2016-10-20] Fix bug in the bitwise domain, on some applications
760
              of the & and | operators
761
-  Value      [2016-10-20] New (experimental) option -val-builtins-auto, to
762
763
              automatically replace known C functions by builtins. Will
              be set by default in Phosphorus.
764
-* Value      [2016-10-19] Frama_C_cos and Frama_C_sin builtins are now
765
766
              precise by default. The former Frama_C_cos / Frama_Csin_precise
              have been removed
767
-* Kernel     [2016-10-18] Fix bug when pretty printing an ACSL term

770
              integer variable to loop counters.
771
-! Kernel     [2016-10-15] Fix major bug in the backward dataflow of module

773
-! Scope      [2016-10-15] Fix bug that might lead to unsoundness and / or
774
              looping in 'Datascope' functionality (#!235)

776
              with volatile qualifier
777
-! Value      [2016-10-11] Option -val-warn-copy-indeterminate is now set by
778
              default. See command-line help if you want to deactivate it.
779
-  Kernel     [2016-10-07] Fix bug that may occur when modifying several times
780
              command line-options taking functions as argument (issue #@109)
781
-! Libc       [2016-10-07] Functions in share/libc.c have been inlined into
782
              the proper .c files under share/libc
783
-  Eva        [2016-10-07] More systematic backward-propagation between
784
              actual parameters and formals
785
-  Nonterm    [2016-10-05] overall increase in precision, especially on
