Apache-2.0 OR MIT


* Sat Apr 16 2022 Fred Fu <>
  - Fix bug for boo#1198475
    * Added a new build dependency, `ncurses-devel`, to enable `expeditor`
* Sun Mar 06 2022 Fred Fu <>
  - Update to 8.4:
    * Command-line Racket provides a new expression editor by default for
      its read-eval-print loop (REPL). The new REPL is based on the Chez
      Scheme expression editor, but extended to use the same
      language-sensitive syntax coloring and indentation tools as DrRacket.
    * Typed Racket adds a kind system, preventing programmers from
      writing nonsensical type expressions. It checks whether type
      constructors are correctly applied to arguments, and separates
      type constructors from polymorphic types. The `:kind` form enables
      checking the kind of a type expression at the REPL. The new system
      also correctly rejects some ill-formed recursive types.
    * Racket has a `file-or-directory-stat` for unified information about
      file-system objects.
    * DrRacket shows the region affected by an `#;` S-expression comment
      by fading the commented-out region.
    * Racket on Chez has faster multiplication and division for some
    * Web server: The files dispatcher supports all standard caching-related
      HTTP response headers (e.g., Cache-Control).
    * Web server: A new dispatcher captures the common pattern of processing
      HTTP requests and responses in a layered fashion.
    * The Web Server supports use of the Cache-Control header, and includes
      a new wrapping dispatcher.
    * Expander: add "portal" syntax to support new forms of syntax object
    * Documentation search is improved.
    * Some hash operations support an optional `try-order?` argument.
    * The plot-metrics interface has documentation.
    * Fonts support OpenType feature settings.
    * The Gui library has improved support for Wayland.
    * The computation of quadratic roots is further improved.
    * The `set/c` contract adds support for random generation.
    * DrRacket's interactions window supports #lang-specific coloring
      and indentation.
    * DrRacket's parenthesis-based keyboard shortcuts change based on
      the parentheses that each different #lang uses.
    * The release includes many other bug repairs and other improvements!
    Transition/Update notes:
    * To turn off expeditor and make Racket's REPL go back to the old
      editline/readline-based editor, use the command
      ,input readline
      and then restart Racket. Get back to the new expression editor with
      ,input expeditor
      To toggle color mode for the new expression editor, use one of the
      following, which does not require restarting Racket:
      ,color #false
      ,color #true
    * Support for comment fading in DrRacket requires an increment to
      the "WXME" format version so files with non-text content written
      by DrRacket v8.4 will open only in v8.4 and later. This does not
      affect files that consist only of unicode text.
    * The addition of the kind system to Typed Racket means that certain
      mild abuses of the type system no longer type check, most notably
      the 'application' of a polymorphic type.
  - Spec changes:
    * fix the path to locate a list of html files where references of
      %{build-root} need to removed
    * add more html files to the list above
    * remove the command that deletes `.LOCKpkgs.rktd`, so users will not
      have to manually create this file as a root user in order to successfully
      run `raco` or `drracket`.
  - RPMlintrc changes:
    * remove unused filters.
    * add a filter to ignore warnings on `.LOCKpkgs.rktd`
* Wed Dec 01 2021 Fred Fu <>
  - Update to 8.3:
    * Racket removes syntax arming and disarming in favor of a simpler system of
      protected syntax operations, along with other updates to the syntax system.
    * DrRacket has improved support for custom #lang languages.
    * Typed Racket improves precision for type-checking of non-polymorphic
      structures, existential types, and certain binding forms.
    * Scribble HTML output gains a button to show / hide the table of contents on
      mobile platforms.
    * Redex’s stepper’s GUI shows IO-judgment form rule names.
    * Many bug fixes!
  - Remove dont-strip.patch, since --disable-strip has been repaired or improved
    in 8.3.
* Sun Oct 10 2021 Fred Fu <>
  - Update to 8.2:
    * Racket CS improved the performance of large-integer arithmetic.
    * Racket has improved support for layered and tethered installation.
    * Racket CS supports nonatomic allocation via ffi/unsafe.
    * Cross-compilation works fully with the raco cross tool, which
      is distributed separately as the “raco-cross” package.
    * DrRacket has performance improvements when editing files with
      picts containing large bitmaps.
    * Typed Racket more consistently refines field types of
      non-polymorphic structs.
    * Printing of values is unified across the teaching language
      implementations and the stepper.
  - Rebase racket-doc.patch
* Wed Jun 16 2021 Dr. Werner Fink <>
  - Fix for bug boo#1187288

    * Racket CS performance has improved for structure predicates
      and accessors
    * Racket CS is faster at multiplying extremely large numbers
      and dividing large integers.
    * Racket CS allows callbacks to raise exceptions if they are
      annotated with #:callback-exns?.
    * New ephemeron hash tables simplify the implementation of
      tables where keys can refer to values.
    * Typed Racket supports for/foldr.
    * The stepper works for #lang htdp/*sl.
    * Struct signatures work for the ASL teaching language.
* Tue Apr 27 2021 Paolo Stivanin <>
  - Update to 8.0:
    * Racket CS is the default implementation
      (except for ppc64le and s390x)
    * Racket CS has better parallel garbage collection, a 10%–30% reduction
      in the size of generated code, and various targeted optimizations.
    * A rewrite of the test-engine package allows the #lang versions of
      teaching languages to produce linked test-failure messages.
    * The release comes with a new mark-up DSL for composing text to appear
      in the REPL (simple-tree-text-markup).
    * Redex has an added define-overriding-judgment form and improved
      error source location reporting.
    * Windows scrolling speed reflects the system preference.
    * The db package uses the utf8mb4 charset for MySQL connections.

  - Update to 7.8:
    * Racket CS supports AArch32 and AArch64, including places and

    Also, Garbage collection is 10-20% faster.
    * DrRacket can recover much more quickly from errors involving large

    latency for long-running request handlers is reduced.

  - Downgrade to Racket 7.1
    * was only a snapshot release and is already gone from
      Racket mirrors

  - Racket version bumped to 6.10.1.
  - Spec changes
    * Drop --collectsdir in %configure in favour of --prefix (%configure
      would fail otherwise)
    * Drop 0-size file guard. This used to delete lock files (LOCKpkgs.rktd)
      lack of which would result in errors in many contexts, including
      basic usage of both DrRacket and raco (package manager)
    * Drop %_datadir/%name/collects from %dir, because parent folder is already
      included in another %dir entry. This fixes a warning about collects folder
      being listed twice.
    * Added reference to starter-sh.
    * Drop DrRacket's -singleInstance option from %suse_update_desktop_file. This
      option caused error messages coming from %suse_update_desktop_file itself.

    unpackaged files builderror in openSUSE:Factory

* Tue Jun 18 2013
  - Update to Racket v5.3.5
    * This is a special-purpose release to match the arrival of "Realm of
      Racket" in bookstores.  Racket v.5.3.5 adds a single `realm'
