A Pre Aspell 0.51 snapshot, version 0.51-20040105, is now available.  
Major changes in Aspell since 0.50:

  * Added support for loadable filters thanks to Christoph Hinterm├╝ller
  * Enhanced TEX filter to support recognize accent commands, such as the
    German umlaute, and to treat words with hyphenation characters in them
    as one word, also thanks to Christoph Hinterm├╝ller
  * Added gettext support thanks to Sergey Poznyakoff
  * Reworked how the dictionary is stored to take up less space (around
    80% for the English language) and be faster in some cases.
  * Reworked the build system so that a single Makefile is used for most
    of the code.

I would really appreciate it if people could test it out and report back
any bugs to the appropriate tracker at .

Due to the changes in the build system I would really appreciate it if
package maintains could attempt to package it and report back any
problems.  Since this is a pre-release version please DO NOT replace
Aspell 0.50 with the snapshot as I do not consider it sufficiently stable
yet.  In particular, the way loadable filters are handles and the
dictionary format may change before Aspell 0.51.

The gettext support is untested so I would really appreciate it if
some people with knowledge of how gettext is suppose to work could test
it out and report any problems.

I would also appreciate it if some people could work on translations.
Currently there are outdated translates for "es" and "fr".

You can find the snapshot at

Future snapshots will be uploaded to  It is
unlikely that I will announce every snapshot release to
aspell-announce.  So, if you are interested in following Aspell
development I suggest you subscribe to aspell-devel.
