Software Update: Racket 7.3

Racket is a development language with which other development languages ​​can be developed. In addition, you can simply develop in Racket itself. It was previously known as the PLT Scheme and comes from the Lisp-Scheme family. For the background we refer to the manifesto, written under the direction of Matthias Felleisen. The developers have released version 7.3 of Racket, with the following announcement:
