I'm pleased to announce the release of PyEnchant version 1.1.3.  This
release includes several new pieces of functionality as well as the
usual bugfixes:

   * support for Python 2.2, if you have an updated distutils
   * use 'locale' module to look up current language if none specified
   * more and better regression tests
   * mark deprecated interfaces with warnings
   * removed <data> parameter to Dict constructor, with lots of
     reshuffling behind the scenes
   * added DictNotFoundError as a subclass of Error
   * tested and tuned unicode support
   * bug fixes:
        * memory leak in DictWithPWL._free()
        * incorrect cache handling for PWLs

Users of previous versions are encouraged to upgrade.  There is also an
updated and expanded tutorial available on the project website.

it wraps the native spellchecking engine to provide a uniform

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: 1.1.3
