@mtf90 mtf90 released this Oct 11, 2020

Full changelog

Added

  • All de-serializers now can also parse GZIP'ed contents from either InputStreams, Files, URLs or byte[]s.

Changed

  • We overhauled the handling of input and output streams for all (de-)serializers. Input and output streams are no longer closed automatically. This is to prevent asymmetric code where we would close a stream that we haven't opened. This is problematic in cases where e.g. System.out is passed as an output stream to simply print a serialized automaton and the System.out stream would be closed afterwards. Since input and output streams are usually opened in client-code, they should be closed in client-code as well. We suggest to simply wrap calls to the serializers in a try-with-resource block.
  • Due to the DOT parsers rewrite (see Fixed), the attribute parsers now receive a Map<String, String> instead of a Map<String, Object>.
  • The State class (used by the OneSEVPA automaton) not longer supports the notion of a sink state. The AbstractOneSEVPA class now conforms with the default semantics of a DeterministicTransitionSystem that undefined transitions simply return null.

Removed

  • Removed IOUtil#copy, IOUtil#skip, NullOutputStream. Use the Guava equivalents from ByteStreams and CharStreams.

Fixed

  • Correctly enquote outputs containing whitespaces in TAFWriter (#37, thanks to @aschieweck)
  • Fixed a bug in the Graph representation of AbstractOneSEVPAs (#39, thanks to @DonatoClun)
  • Fixed wrong default values in the overloaded methods of the Minimizer class (#41).
  • Replaced the 3rd-party DOT parser with our own implementation to fix the issue that multi-edges between nodes were not properly handled.

Full changelog

Added

  • A new alphabet implementation MapAlphabet that is based on the old SimpleAlphabet but without implementing the GrowingAlphabet interface.
  • IntRangeIterator now implements PrimitiveIterator.OfInt.
  • A parser for dot files has been added and is available in the automata-serialization-dot module via the DOTParsers factory.
  • A new PaigeTarjanMinimization factory that offers convenience methods for PaigeTarjan-based automata minimization (with support for e.g. partial automata) has been added.
  • Performance improvements for some alphabet implementations (DefaultVPDAlphabet, ListAlphabet, {Int,Char}Range, ...).
  • An LTSminLTLParser to verify if LTL properties match the expected syntax of LTSmin.
  • A WordCollector for collecting words from symbol Streams.

Changed

  • Refactored the following packages/classes:
    • net.automatalib.words.impl.SimpleAlphabet -> net.automatalib.words.impl.GrowingMapAlphabet
    • net.automatalib.serialization.AutomatonSerializationException -> net.automatalib.serialization.FormatException
    • net.automatalib.serialization.fsm.parser.FSMParseException -> net.automatalib.serialization.fsm.parser.FSMFormatException
    • net.automatalib.serialization.taf.parser.TAFParseException -> net.automatalib.serialization.taf.parser.TAFFormatException
    • net.automatalib.automata.transducers.impl.map.SimpleMapGraph -> net.automatalib.graphs.map.SimpleMapGraph
  • The BackedGeneralPriorityQueue(Class<T> c) constructor was replaced with a more idiomatic BackedGeneralPriorityQueue(Supplier<T> s) constructor.
  • The TAF serialization code now forwards (i.e. throws) IOExceptions that occur when reading from the various data sources.
  • JSR305 annotations have been replaced with checker-framework annotations.
    • AutomataLib now follows checker-framework's convention that (non-annotated) types are usually considered non-null unless explicitly annotated with @Nullable.
    • AutomataLib no longer has a (runtime-) dependency on JSR305 (and other javax.*) annotations or includes them in the distribution artifact. This now makes AutomataLib compliant with Oracle's binary code license and allows AutomataLib artifacts as-is to be bundled in binary distributions with Oracle's JDKs/JREs.

Removed

  • StringIndexGenerator has been removed. Its (streamlined) functionality is now available as Mapping via Mappings#stringToIndex and Mappings#indexToString.
  • DelegatingIterator: If you used this class, switch to Guavas equivalent ForwardingIterator.
  • ParameterMismatchException: Was unused and never thrown.
  • StateIDDynamicMapping: Equivalent functionality is provided by ArrayMapping.
  • ResizingIntArray: Internal data structure was unused.
  • The VPDAlphabet interface no longer specifies the get{Internal,Call,Return}Symbols() methods, as the get{Internal,Call,Return}Alphabet() methods supersede their functionality.
  • PaigeTarjan{Initializers,Extractors} methods for non IntAbstractions have been removed. You may use the new convenience methods provided by PaigeTarjanMinimization.
  • Further @Deprecated methods have been removed.
  • Removed ProbMealyTransition and replaced it with the generic MealyTransition directly carrying the ProbabilisticOutput. It is no longer allowed to pass null as transition property.
  • Removed OutputAndLocalInputs, StateLocalInputIncrementalMealyTreeBuilder and StateLocalInputMealyUtil. The (LearnLib) code related to inferring partial Mealy machines no longer requires these transformed automata. Whoever used this code for transforming a partial Mealy machine to a complete one, may use MealyMachines#complete instead.

Fixed

  • Fixed a bug, where the PaigeTarjan-based minimization would return a wrong automaton when pruning was enabled and the initial automaton was partial.
  • Fixed a bug in our Tarjan SCC implementation (#35, thanks to Malte Mues)
  • Fixed a bug in the computation of characterizing sets (#36).
  • Several (null-related) bugs detected by our ongoing efforts to write tests.

@mtf90 mtf90 released this Feb 18, 2019

Full changelog

Added

  • Added support for model checking automata using the LTSmin model checker (thanks to Jeroen Meijer).
  • Added a CompactMoore implementation.
  • Added an AutomatonBuilder for Moore Machines.
  • Added support for adding input symbols to incremental constructions (tree caches, DAG caches).
  • Support for Java 11. Note: AutomataLib still targets Java 8, and thus needs classes provided by this environment (specifically: annotations from javax.annotation). If you plan to use AutomataLib in a Java 11+ environment, make sure to provide these classes. They are not shipped with AutomataLib.

Changed

  • Refactored the following packages/classes:
    • net.automatalib.automata.transout -> net.automatalib.automata.transducers
    • net.automatalib.ts.transout -> net.automatalib.ts.output
    • net.automatalib.util.automata.transout -> net.automatalib.util.automata.transducers
    • net.automatalib.automata.GrowableAlphabetAutomaton -> net.automatalib.SupportsGrowingAlphabet
  • Some runtime properties for dynamically configuring AutomataLib have been renamed. There now exists the AutomataLibProperty enum as a single reference point for all available properties.
  • Several of the AbstractCompact* automata classes have been refactored to share common functionality. While this shouldn't affect its implementations (such as CompactDFA or CompactMealy) user-land code using the abstract classes may break.
  • The BricsDFA wrapper previously allowed (via a boolean flag) to trigger determinization of the BRICS automaton. This determinization is now performed automatically if necessary. Instead the boolean flag now triggers a totalization of the transition function, which allows to properly use BricsDFAs in structural equivalence tests (as BRICS automata do not allow to limit their input alphabet to certain characters).
  • Adding new symbols to automata (via the SupportsGrowingAlphabet interface) now requires the automaton to be initialized with a GrowingAlphabet instance. This is to make sure that the user has full control over which alphabet instance should be used instead of AutomataLib making decisions on behalf of the user.

Removed

  • The mutable Pair class has been removed. The previously immutable pair class IPair has been renamed to Pair.
  • Some utility classes and functions (especially from the automata-common-util package) have been removed without replacement, since equivalent functionality is provided by the Google Guava library we depend on. If you used any of this code, switch to the Guava equivalent.
  • RichArray has been removed. At least regarding storage, ArrayStorage can be used as a replacement.
  • SymbolHidingAlphabet has been removed without replacement. Changes to the logic of adding new input symbols should no longer make this class necessary.

Fixed

  • Serializers now use platform dependent newlines. This shouldn't affect deserialization code.
  • Several bugs detected by our ongoing efforts to write tests.

@mtf90 mtf90 released this Feb 27, 2018

Full changelog

Added

  • Added algorithms for computing adaptive distinguishing sequences for Mealy machines.
  • Added support for adding alphabet symbols after initial automaton construction.
  • Added support for Visibly Push-Down Automata (VPDA) in form of 1-SEVPAs.
  • Added (de-)serializers for the AUT format (see #14).
  • Added lazy (iterator based) methods for computing state- and transition covers, W-Method and Wp-Method tests.
  • Added a serializer for the SAF format.

Changed

  • Refactored the Maven artifact and Java package structure. Have a look at the List of AutomataLib Artifacts for an updated overview of available artifacts. In general, no functionality should have been removed (except of code marked with @Deprecated). The easiest way to migrate your code to the new version is probably by using the Auto-Import feature of your IDE of choice.

    The non-trivial refactorings include:

    • API methods no longer use wildcards in generic return parameters. This allows your code to not having to deal with them.
    • The visualization facade has been generified. Any getGraphDOTHelper() related code has been renamed to the more general getVisualizationHelper() terminology. The Visualization class now works by providing either the automata-dot-visualizer or automata-jung-visualizer JAR at runtime. This allows for potentially more visualizers in the future.
  • Replaced System.out logging, with calls to an SLF4j facade.

  • Code improvements due to employment of several static code-analysis plugins (findbugs, checkstyle, PMD, etc.) as well as setting up continuous integration at Travis CI.

Removed

  • Several classes and methods annotated with @Deprecated.

Fixed

  • Several bugs detected either by our newly employed static code-analysis toolchain or by our ongoing efforts to write tests.
