I've just sent in v2.6 of redex.plt. In the last few releases there
have been bunch of improvements and this will probably be the last
minor version before some backwards-incompatible changes. These are the
highlights from the last few versions:

  - added a bunch of new patterns for things are commonly written as
    side-conditions: support for a kind of "namespace" (prefixed
    variables, technically), patterns that ensure named sub-expressions
    must be different from each other, and ways to make sure different
    sequences have the same (or different) length.

  - significantly improved the memory consumption (added
    programmer-support for the pattern matching caches and better
    defaults) and also found a 30% speedup (altho the 30% speedup was
    back in 2.1)

  - added metafunction support, using the same notation as the

  - added documentation that explains how to avoid performance bugs,
    and a note on a debugging technique.

  - added schemeunit support (two 'check's)
