Hi Everyone,

I'm pleased to announce the release of PyEnchant version 1.1.5.  This is
a bugfix release to address some hangs when running on MS Windows.

   * Fix hang in included MySpell (Windows distribution)
   * Workaround for some MySpell/unicode problems
   * Update to latest setuptools

Users of previous versions are encouraged to upgrade.  Also, my attempts
to announce version 1.1.4 on python-announce seem to have bounced, so
I'm including the 1.1.4 ChangeLog below.




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 standard. It's completely cross-platform because
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: 1.1.4
Licence: LGPL with exemptions, as per Enchant itself

ChangeLog for 1.1.4:

   * No longer need to use the registry under Windows
   * Moved to setuptools for managing distribution
   * Registered at the Cheese Shop, with Eggs available for Windows
   * Implemented unittest TestCases, works with `python test`
   * Plugins on Windows moved to "enchant" subdirectory
   * SpellChecker now coerces to/from unicode automatically
   * Use python default encoding rather than UTF-8 where appropriate
   * Various documentation cleanups
   * bug fixes:
        * (1230151): count of live instances done by normalized key
        * Accept unicode strings as broker orderings
