aspell - A spell checker designed to eventually replace Ispell

GNU Aspell is a spell-checker which can be used either as a standalone application or embedded in other programs. Its main feature is that it does a much better job of suggesting possible spellings than just about any other spell-checker available for the English language, including Ispell and Microsoft Word. It also has many other technical enhancements over Ispell such as using shared memory for dictionaries and intelligently handling personal dictionaries when more than one Aspell process is open at once.
Aspell is designed to be a drop-in replacement for Ispell.

  • version update to 0.60.8
    • 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. @xref{Upgrading from Aspell 0.60.7}.
    • 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 @option{wordlists} option, which is a list of UTF-8 files that
    contain additional words to accept.
    • Add new @option{camel-case} option, which enables support for checking
    camelCase words.
    • Sort personal and replacement dictionaries.
    • Change @code{ultra} suggestion mode to only find words that are within
    one-edit distance or have the same soundslike.
    • Implement the @code{aspell filter} command.
    • Fix a bug in @code{AspellDocumentChecker} that prevented it from
    working with UCS-2 and UCS-4 encoded strings.
    • Remove unused @option{sug-edit-dist} option.
    • @code{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 @option{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    • Removal of several outdated appendices that don't really belong in the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.
    • Add partial support for recognizing the Unicode apostrophe (') in
    words. In particular Aspell will accept the Unicode apostrophe when the language uses an ISO Latin charset that doesn't already have a Unicode apostrophe. For now, Aspell will still use the ASCII version in suggestions.
    • Detect when a dictionary compiled on a 32-bit machine is used on a
    64-bit one (and vise versa), as due to an oversight, compiled dictionaries depend on more than the endianness. Also added a compile time option to remove this dependency, but at the cost of breaking compatibility with already compiled dictionaries on 64-bit systems.
    • Fix a bug which caused Aspell to crash when passing in a null string
    to almost any of the C API functions. This should not happen if the size is also zero as the pointer should never be derefrenced.
    • Fix a bug that caused Aspell to crash with a SEGFAULT when built with
    • In addition to outputting a warning when building with NDEBUG defined,
    also include NDEBUG in the version string.
    • Various compile fixes for newer version of Gcc and Clang.
    • Fix VPATH builds.
    • Use utf-8 encoding for manual instead of iso-8859-1.
    • Other minor updates and bug fixes.
  • deleted patches
    • aspell-automake-1.13.patch (upstreamed)
