Pspell .11 is and an Ispell module is now available. 

This version of Pspell significantly more complete than version
.10.  This version has support for non-English languages as well as
non-iso8859-1 encodings--including UTF-8.  This version will also work
with Ispell when used with with the Ispell module.  It will now search for
the best word list based on the requested language and other factors.

The main area where this release suffers is in the building of shared
libraries as it does not work nearly as well as it should.  I hope to
eventually use the multi-language branch of libtool so that building
of C++ libraries will work a lot better. Unfortunately the CVS
multi-language branch of libtools still has tones of problems and only
works well on Linux.  If you have any expertise in this area I would
greatly appreciate your help.

Future versions of the interface will provide better support for
multi-lingual documents as well as methods for spell checking whole
regions of text. Letting the spell checker check whole region of text
will allow the spell checker to skip over formating commands, URLs,
and the like.

I also plan on coming up with a Pspell utility that will, among other
things, function as a drop in replacement for ``ispell -a'' so that
Pspell can be used in place of Ispell.

As always you can get it at

Be sure at let me know what you think of it.
