Hi Jay,

Thanks for the quick reply!

yes, my 4.2.1 has (planet "plai-tool.ss" ("plai" "plai.plt" 1 4))
and my 4.2.4 has (planet "plai-tool.ss" ("plai" "plai.plt" 1 20))

I have installed using the procedure described on the website, ie. "(require (planet plai/plai:1:3))"

is there a newer incantation to install the latest PLAI?

Great, I'm looking forward to 4.2.5 then. An important practical question for me now (since the semester is starting in Chile and I have students striving to get PLAI running properly on 4.2.4) is: 
- how long since 4.2.5? 
- or, should I just try to install the newer PLAI in 4.2.4 (if there is another version than plai:1:3)?
- or back to an older versino of PLAI?

Thanks a lot,
