From: Eli Barzilay <email@example.com> To: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com Subject: [PLT announcement] PLT Scheme v206 available Date: Tue, 27 Jan 2004 02:16:49 -0500 PLT Scheme v206 is now available from http://download.plt-scheme.org/ Highlights: * The Stepper now supports HtDP’s intermediate student language level (which includes higher-order functions and local bindings) * Program text in DrScheme is now colored "on the fly" as you edit. This coloring reflects read-level properties of the program. For context sensitive coloring (and arrows), continue to use Check Syntax. * The test suite support has been completely re-done. Rather than a separate test suite window, test cases are now integrated into the main DrScheme window. * The PLT Suite now includes a new tool for giving presentations: Slideshow. As LaTeX is to Word, so Slideshow is to Powerpoint (except using Scheme as the extension language, rather than TeX macros). * Search results in Help Desk are now language-sensitive. * ProfessorJ now includes the ProfessorJ Advanced language, as well as documentation outlining what constructs are allowed in the three teaching languages. Improved editor support makes editing Java programs easier than before. * DrScheme now includes the OpenSSL and OpenGL interface (sgl) libraries on all platforms, and the MysterX and MzCom libraries for Windows only. * Mac OS 9 is no longer supported. For more detailed changes, see the "notes" subdirectory of the installation. Feedback welcome. -- ((lambda (x) (x x)) (lambda (x) (x x))) Eli Barzilay: http://www.barzilay.org/ Maze is Life!
