 * The Stepper now supports HtDP's intermediate student language level
   (which includes higher-order functions and local bindings)

   This coloring reflects read-level properties of the program.  For
   context sensitive coloring (and arrows), continue to use Check

   separate test suite window, test cases are now integrated into the
   main DrScheme window.

   Slideshow.  As LaTeX is to Word, so Slideshow is to Powerpoint

 * 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.
