User-agent: Alpine 2.11 (DEB 23 2013-08-11)

A pre-release snapshot of the next stable version of Aspell is now available at:

This snapshot fixes an buffer over-read as already announced. Unfortunately it has the potential to break some applications. See the manual for more info.

Changes so far (from Aspell 0.60.7):

   * Add Markdown filter.
   * When typo analysis is used, ensure that possible typos are listed
     before other suggestions.  Also fix a bug so that suggestions that
     split a word using a space or hyphen are not always first.
   * Change ‘ultra’ suggestion mode to only find words that are within
     one-edit distance or have the same soundslike.
   * To prevent a potentially unbounded buffer over-read Aspell no
     longer supports null-terminated UCS-2 and UCS-4 encoded strings
     with the original C API.
   * Fix a bug in ‘AspellDocumentChecker’ that prevented it from working
     with UCS-2 and UCS-4 encoded strings.
   * Implement ‘aspell filter’ command.
   * Remove unused ‘sug-edit-dist’ option.
   * In order to work with the new Markdown filter
     ‘AspellDocumentChecker’ now expects the document a line at a time.
     If the document is split on white space characters instead, nothing
     will break, but new filters such as the Markdown filter may give
     incorrect results.
   * Fix various crashes and other problems found by Google’s OSS-Fuzz.

Major additional changes planned before Aspell 0.60.8

   * Expose suggestion scores:
   * Provide support for "wordlists" option:

This snapshot was created due to the buffer over-read found in Aspell. Additional snapshots may be made available at on an as needed bases and likely to only be announced on the aspell-devel list.

I plan to release Aspell 0.60.8 within a month.
