PLT Scheme v4.1.4
posted by Eli Barzilay
PLT Scheme version 4.1.4 is now available from http://plt-scheme.org/
New libraries include
scheme/package' (for nestable static modules) andffi/objc’ (support for Objective-C).
New teaching support includes a “universe.ss” teachpack for connecting “worlds” over a network.
Redex now supports automatic test-case generation. Specify a predicate that should hold of your reduction system, and Redex will attempt to falsify it. See ‘redex-check’ in the manual for more details.
Improvements to the run-time system include better and more reliable memory-limit tracking, function contracts that preserve tail recursion in many cases, native debugging backtraces on x86_64, and performance improvements.
Improved libraries include enhancements to
scheme/sandbox', better handling of zero-sized matches byregexp-split’ and friends, an
equal>' interface for specifying equality on class instances (and more general support for attaching properties to interfaces), equality (viaequal>’) for image objects, and refinements to `scheme/foreign’ to support atomic operations and function-pointer conversions.
