* The `#lang scheme' language is deprecated. `#lang racket' should be
  used instead.

* The `compatibility' collection provides features from Racket relatives,
  such as `defmacro' and mutable lists. These features are provided to
  ease porting code to Racket. We do not recommend using them in modern
  Racket code.

* NaN is included in all of Typed Racket's floating-point types, which
  makes precise floating-point types easier to use.

* Typed Racket provides the `:query-type/args' and `:query-type/result'
  utilities to explore types at the REPL.

* Screenshots of the widgets provided by the Racket GUI library are
  included in the documentation. (Thanks to Diogo F. S. Ramos.)
