Yeah, sorry I didn't make that clear :) PLT Scheme has become Racket... even though its still Scheme.

It looks to me like a lot of the core PLT guys were involved in the R6RS debacle, and didn't like what came out of the process so decided maybe they aren't quite an official "Scheme" anymore per R6RS. Oh the drama...

I don't think so. PLT Scheme was already moving away from R5RS. I think the renaming was to acknowledge that Racket isn't scheme.

That said, I believe the have implemented scheme in Racket. I think PG implemented Arc in it too. It also comes with Algol-68 I think.
