[isabelle] Isabelle2016-RC3 available for testing

Dear Isabelle users,

Isabelle2016-RC3 is now available for further testing, and regular use in anticipation of official Isabelle2016:


This corresponds to the repository versions https://bitbucket.org/isabelle_project/isabelle-release/commits/Isabelle2016-RC3
and https://bitbucket.org/isa-afp/afp-devel/commits/138306721319

Summary of notable points:

 - update to Poly/ML 5.6 release (see https://github.com/polyml/polyml/releases/tag/v5.6)
 - update of Isabelle/jEdit manual (notably Isabelle/ML debugging)
 - avoid waste of parallel CPU time in Par_List.map (Isabelle/Scala)
 - support @{url} with single quotes

After 1 month of testing, very few problems have been exposed. This means there are no real problems left, or that users have not switched to Isabelle2016-RC yet.

People who have used earlier release candidates should upgrade now. Local settings can be preserved by copying $ISABELLE_HOME_USER in a suitable manner: renaming the last component of the directory name to Isabelle2016-RC3 before starting the new version.

When discussing problems, observations, suggestions, etc. the mail subject line should be changed to something informative (but the release candidate number still given in the message body).
