Hi, Today (i.e., 3/26/2012) DrRacket version 5.2.1 no longer starts. Instead, it signals an error on function read-bitmap. This bug was initially reported by a colleague of mine and then independently confirmed by me.
Given that the bug only showed today, and it doesn't occur when we change the current date of the computer, this looks like some kind of Easter egg that went wrong, probably, related to prince-kuhio-day. This is annoying, to say the least, but the most serious effect is on the credibility of the Racket ecosystem. I've put a lot of effort in doing research on top of Racket and I tried hard to convince my colleagues of the usefulness of Racket. However, it has been increasingly difficult to keep up with its instabilities. You can guess what my colleagues will say... Best, António Leitão. _________________________ Racket Developers list: http://lists.racket-lang.org/dev
