Aspell 0.60.8 Now Available

GNU Aspell 0.60.8 is now available at:

Please note that this version has the potential to break some applications
that use null-terminated UCS-2 and UCS-4 encoded strings in order to fix a
potentially unbounded buffer over-read.  Very few applications do this
however.  For additional information please see "Upgrading from Aspell 0.60.7"
in the manual.

Major changes from 0.60.7 to 0.68.8:

   * Prevent a potentially unbounded buffer over-read by no longer
     supporting null-terminated UCS-2 and UCS-4 encoded strings with the
     original C API.

   * Ensure that possible typos are listed before other suggestions when
     typo analysis is used.  Also fix a bug so that suggestions that
     split a word using a space or hyphen are not always first.

   * Add Markdown filter.

   * Add new ‘wordlists’ option, which is a list of UTF-8 files that
     contain additional words to accept.

   * Add new ‘camel-case’ option, which enables support for checking
     camelCase words.

   * Sort personal and replacement dictionaries.

   * Change ‘ultra’ suggestion mode to only find words that are within
     one-edit distance or have the same soundslike.

Other changes from 0.60.7:

   * Implement the ‘aspell filter’ command.
   * Fix a bug in ‘AspellDocumentChecker’ that prevented it from working
     with UCS-2 and UCS-4 encoded strings.
   * Remove unused ‘sug-edit-dist’ option.
   * ‘AspellDocumentChecker’ now expects the document a line at a time
     in order to work with the new Markdown filter.  If the document is
     split on white space characters instead, nothing will break, but
     new filters such as the Markdown filter may give incorrect results.
   * The ‘clean’ option and command will no longer split a word.
   * Various documentation improvements.
   * Removal of several outdated appendices that don’t really belong in
     the main manual.  Parts that are still relevent may eventually be
     moved elsewhere, but for now they are available online at
   * Fix various crashes and other problems found by Google’s OSS-Fuzz.
