In addition, the Racket 7.3 release includes the following improvements:

  • There is a new set of teaching languages for the upcoming German-language textbook “Schreibe Dein Programm!” (https://www.deinprogramm.de/).

  • Racket’s IO system has been refactored to improve performance and simplify internal design.

  • Racket’s JSON reader is dramatically faster.

  • The plot library includes color map support for renderers.

  • The Racket web library has improved support for 307 redirects.

  • The Racket web server provides better response messages by default for common status codes.
