Just added a 600 year old word?
Unless I'm a time traveller or something I seem to recall "redact" meaning the same thing about ten or so years ago (I'm embarrassed it was so recently) when I first came across the term.
It seems that some dictionaries have been aware of it for a while.
From Merriem-Webster online:
Main Entry: re·dact
Function: transitive verb
Etymology: Middle English, from Latin redactus, past participle of redigere
Date: 15th century
1 : to put in writing : frame
2 : to select or adapt (as by obscuring or removing sensitive information) for publication or release; broadly : edit
3 : to obscure or remove (text) from a document prior to publication or release
