I'm pleased to announce the release of PyEnchant version 1.2.0. This version includes some important updates in the underlying enchant library, and implements basic "filters" to allow skipping of email addresses, WikiWords, URLs, etc during a spellchecking session.
Enchant (http://www.abisource.com/enchant/) is the spellchecking package behind the AbiWord word processor, is being considered for inclusion in the KDE office suite, and is proposed as a FreeDesktop.org standard. It's completely cross-platform because it wraps the native spellchecking engine to provide a uniform interface.
PyEnchant brings this simple, powerful and flexible spellchecking engine to Python:
It also provides extended functionality including classes for tokenizing text and iterating over the spelling errors in it, as well as a ready-to-use text interface and wxPython dialog.
Current Version: 1.2.0 Licence: LGPL with exemptions, as per Enchant itself
ChangeLog for 1.2.0: --------------------
* Implemented "filters" that allow tokenization to skip common word forms such as URLs, WikiWords, email addresses etc. * Now ships with enchant-1.3.0, meaning: * PWLs can return a useful list of suggestions rather than the empty list * Hunspell replaces MySpell as the default Windows backend * Tokenization doesnt split words at non-alpha characters by default * GtkSpellCheckerDialog contributed by Fredrik Corneliusson * Removed deprecated functionality: * Dict.add_to_personal * All registry handling functionality from enchant.utils * enchant.utils.SpellChecker (use enchant.checker.SpellChecker) * Removed PyPWL, as native enchant PWLs can now suggest corrections
