THINGS STILL MISSING (and promised to be broken :)

- teachpacks
- launchers


- changed the way menu strings are constructed (used
  to concatenate things in a very English specific
  way). So, the menus section of string constants
  should be double checked. I fixed it as best I
  could, based on what was already there.

- added r5rs-like string constant, removed full-languages
  constant. This shows up in the language dialog. The second
  turn down tab used to be "Full" (in English). It is now

- added bring-frame-to-front and bring-frame-to-front...
  for the title of a new menu item in the windows menu
  and the title of the dialog that it brings up.


- the framework no longer implicit string-appends various strings
  to construct menu labels. This means that the methods
  of the form file-menu:new-string now specify the entire
  label of the menu, not just the bit after `New’.

- all languages created by the simple-module-based-language
  mixin have ’mzscheme set as the initial contents
  of the transformer portion of their namespace.

- drscheme:language:make-simple-settings/parse has been
  eliminated; use drscheme:language:make-simple-settings

- added gui-utils:alphabetic-list-box% to framework


- improved print-convert (and thus, drscheme’s
  non-write printers) for syntax and regexps.

- added an emacs-like c-x c-b feature to drscheme.
  type <menukey>-b to popup a window of the open frames
  and choose one without using the mouse by typing.

- changed "Full" to "R5RS-like" for language category.

- added r5rs and r5rs debugging languages to "R5RS-like".

- fixed misc Check Syntax problems -- it should now
  be in good shape (please report any bugs or bug-like
  behavior now)

- search dialog only shows replacing bit if the
  buffer is unlocked.

- The enter key now submits the interaction in the REPL,
  even if the cursor isn’t at the end of a sexpression.

- fixed a long standing bug where the paren highlighter
  would highlight parens inside single semi-colon comments
  in a funny way.

new tools and framework manuals released.
