Recent changes to DrScheme & Co.

Posted in Scheme at 1:03 am by pmatos

R. Findler posts recent changes to DrScheme and Co. on PLT Mailing List. It’s always nice to review them.

For details on using the intermediate releases, see

http://svn.plt-scheme.org/

This is a summary of the recent changes to DrScheme in the
SVN archive. You may have some of these changes already;
typically each change is committed as it happens and these
emails are only sent when the list gets long enough.

. Added two new keybindings to DrScheme (in Scheme mode):

c-c; c-o move-sexp-out: the sexpression following the insertion
point is put in place of its containing sexpression.

c-c; c-l insert-let-binding: wraps a let around the sexpression
following the insertion point and puts a printf in at that point
(useful for debugging)

. Case-insensitivity is now available in DrScheme’s search box,
courtesy of Jens Axel Sogaard. Thanks!

. The image.ss teachpack now uses smoothed images.

. drscheme-language-positions and
drscheme-language-readers now allows relative paths for
language module specifications.

. Added `this’, implicitly bound in ->r and ->pp contracts
when used inside `object-contract’

. union is now deprecated in favor of or/c. It’s the same
combinator, but it matches other names in the contract library.
