Summary     : Aspell is an Open Source spell checker.
Description :
Aspell is an Open Source spell checker designed to eventually replace
Ispell. Its main feature is that it does a much better job of coming
up with possible suggestions than Ispell does. In fact recent tests
shows that it even does better than Microsoft Word 97's spell checker
in some cases. In addition it has both compile time and run time
support for other non English languages. Aspell also doubles as a
powerful C++ library with C and Perl interfaces in the works.

* Mon Jun 19 2000 Ryan Weaver <address@hidden>

- Fixed a bug where Aspell would not create a complete dictionary file
  on some platforms when the data is 8-bit.
- Added a workaround so Aspell will work with ispell.el 3.3.
- Minor compile fixes so it would compile better with the very latest
  gcc (CVS Version).
- Removed note about compiling in Win32 as I was now able to get it to

* Mon Jun 12 2000 Ryan Weaver <address@hidden>

- Added support for spell checking run together words.
- Added an option to produce a list of misspelled words from standard input.
- More robust error reporting when reading in language data files.
- Fixed a bug when that will cause Aspell to crash if the ``special''
  line was not defined in the language data file.
- Update Pspell Module.
- Minor bug fixes.
- Added cross references in ``The Aspell utility Chapter'' for easier use.

* Mon May 01 2000 Ryan Weaver <address@hidden>

- Ported Aspell to Win32 platforms.
- Portability fixes which may help aspell compile on other platforms.
- Aspell will no longer fail if for some reason the mmap fails, instead it
  will just read the file in as normal and free the memory when done.
- Minor changes in the format of the main word list as a result of the
  changes, the old format should still work in most cases.
- Fixed a bug when aspell was ignoring the extension of file names such as
  .html or .tex when checking files.
- Fixed a bug when aspell will go into an infinite loop when creating the
  main word list from a word list which has duplicates in it.
- Minor changes to the manual for better clarity.

* Mon Apr 03 2000 Ryan Weaver <address@hidden>

- Fixed many of the capitalization bugs found in previous versions of Aspell.
- Changed the format of the main word list yet again.
- Fixed a bug so that ``aspell check'' will work on the PowerPC.
- Added ability to change configuration options in the middle of a session.
- Added words from /usr/dict/words found on most Linux systems as well as
  a bunch of commonly used abbreviation to the word list.
- Fixed a bug when aspell will dump core after reporting certain errors
  when compiled with gcc 2.95 or higher. This involved reworked the
  Exception heritage to get around a bug in gcc 2.95.
- Added a few more commands to the list of default commands the TEX
  filter knows about.
- Aspell will now check if a word only contains valid characters before
  adding it to any dictionaries. This might mean that you have to
  manually delete a few words from your personal word list.
- Added option to ignore case when checking a document.
- Adjusted the parameters of the ``normal'' suggest mode to so that
  significantly less far fetched results are returned in cases such as
  tomatoe, which went from 100 suggestions down to 32, at the expense of
  getting slightly lower results (less than 1%),
- Improved the edit distance algorithm for slightly faster results.
- Removed the $$m command in pipe mode, you should now use ``$$cs mode,
  mode '' to set the mode and ``$$cr mode'' to find out the current mode.
- Reworked parts of Aspell to use Pspell services to avoid duplicating code.
- Added a module for the newly released Pspell. It will get installed
  with the rest of aspell.
- Miscellaneous other bug fixes.

* Mon Feb 21 2000 Ryan Weaver <address@hidden>

- Improved the TEX filter so that it will accept '@' at the begging of a
  command name and ignore trailing '*'s. It also now has better defaults
  for which parameters to skip.
- Reworked the main dictionary so that it can be memory mapped in. This
  decreases startup time and allows multiple aspell processes to use the
  same memory for the main word list. This also also made Aspell 64 bit
  clean so that it should work on an alpha now.
- Fix so that aspell can compile on platforms that gnu as is not
  available for.
- Fixed issue with flock so it would compile on FreeBSD.
- Minor changes in the code to make it more C++ compliant although I am
  sure there will still be problems when using some other compiler other
  than gcc or egcs.
- Added some comments to the header files to better document a few of the


   RPMs are built on a Pentium II 450mhz w/192megs RAM with RedHat 6.1
   plus updates from installed.
