I'm pleased to announce the release of PyEnchant version 1.3.0. This version reverts the tokenization routines to their pre-1.2.0 behaviour, after several functionality regressions were reported. In the process it introduces some very minor API changes (hence the big version jump) which will affect users who directly create their own tokenization objects.
The high-level interfaces - Dict, Broker, SpellChecker - have not changed since the 1.2.0 release.
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.
