[racket] Learning Scheme and Racket

Dear list members,

I'm teaching myself Scheme (as an old imperative language programmer) by going through SCIP, the little Schemer, the Seasoned Schemer etc. and #lang Racket by going through the Racket guide and documentation.  What I would find useful is a list of the major differences between a standard form of Scheme (such as r5rs for example) and #lang Racket.  Can any of the members point me to such a list or table?

Also if there are any articles that discuss the design decisions about Racket where it has diverged from the usual or standard form of Scheme.  Not just where it differs but why it was made different.

Thanks in advance,

Harry Spier
