Hi All,

  I'm pleased to announce the release of PyEnchant version 1.4.0.  This
version brings compatibility with the latest release of the underlying
enchant library, including some new features.



ChangeLog for 1.4.0:

* upgrade to enchant v1.4.0, with new functionality and APIs:
  * unicode PWL filenames now handled correctly on Windows
  * All dictionary providers now use a shared default personal word file
    (largely obsoleting the DictWithPWL class)
  * Ability to exclude words using Dict.remove, remove_from_session
    (such words will always be marked as misspelled)
  * Dict.add_to_personal renamed to Dict.add
    (but the old name still works, for backwards-compatibility)
  * Dict.is_added/Dict.is_removed for checking membership of word lists
* upgrade bundled glib DLLs in Windows version


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 dialogs for wxPython and GTK.

Current Version: 1.4.0
Licence: LGPL with exemptions, as per Enchant itself
