Release Candidate 2 for Aspell 0.60.7 is now available at:

I have been very busy with other things and I failed to ship 0.60.7 after the last release candidate, however things have settled down for me now. I plan to release 0.60.7 by the end of July.

Changes from Release Candidate 1:

   • Fix a bug that caused Aspell to crash with a SEGFAULT when built
     with mingw-w64.
   • Compile and bug fixes.

Changes from

   • Add partial support for recognizing the Unicode apostrophe (’) in
     words.  In particular Aspell will accept the Unicode apostrophe
     when the language uses an ISO Latin charset that doesn’t already
     have a Unicode apostrophe.  For now, Aspell will still use the
     ASCII version in suggestions.
   • Detect when a dictionary compiled on a 32-bit machine is used on a
     64-bit one (and vise versa), as due to an oversight, compiled
     dictionaries depend on more than the endianness.  Also added a
     compile time option to remove this dependency, but at the cost of
     breaking compatibility with already compiled dictionaries on 64-bit
   • Fix a bug which caused Aspell to crash when passing in a null
     string to almost any of the C API functions.  This should not
     happen if the size is also zero as the pointer should never be
   • In addition to outputting a warning when building with NDEBUG
     defined, also include NDEBUG in the version string.
   • Various compile fixes for newer version of Gcc and Clang.
   • Fix VPATH builds.
   • Use utf-8 encoding for manual instead of iso-8859-1.
   • Other minor updates and bug fixes.
