Log Message:
Update to 0.60.2.

New in 0.60.2:

   * Added the `munch-list' command to the aspell utility.  The `munch'
     program in the `myspell/' directory will disappear in Aspell 0.61.
     The `munchlist' script will also likely disappear or be replaced
     when Aspell 0.61 is released since it doesn't work correctly

   * Several important bug fixes some of which rendered some non-English
     languages unusable.

   * Other minor changes.

New in

   * Fix bug involving checking of capitalized word when affix
     compression is used.

   * Compile fixes.

   * Added an option to disable using the "wide" curses version in case
     it causes compile problems.

   * Minor manual updates

   * Avoided including some unnecessary files in the distribution.

New in 0.60.1:

   * Lots of compile fixes for various platforms.

   * Miscellaneous bug fixes.

   * Added Nroff filter thanks to Sergey Poznyakoff.

   * The default filter mode when in pipe mode is now nroff for
     compatibility with Ispell.

   * Added Texinfo filter.

   * Added a section detailing the differences between Ispell and

   * Updated the section on thread safety.

   * Other miscellaneous manual changes such as updating the To Do and
     Authors section.

Changes since 0.50.5:

    * Added support for Affix Compression. Affix compression stores
    the root word and then a list of prefixes and suffixes that
    the word can take, and thus saves a lot of space. The codebase
    comes from MySpell found in OpenOffice. It uses the same affix
    file that OpenOffice (and Mozilla) use. Affix compression will
    even work with soundslike lookup to a limited extent.
    * Added support for accepting all input and printing all output
    in UTF-8 or some other encoding different from the one Aspell
    uses. This includes support for Unicode normalization. Aspell
    can now support any language with no more than 210 distinct
    characters, including different capitalizations and accents,
    _even if_ there is not an existing 8-bit encoding that supports
    the language.
    * Added support for loadable filters and customizable filter
    modes thanks to Christoph Hintermüller.
    * Enhanced SGML filter to also support skipping sgml tags such
    as "script" blocks thanks to Tom Snyder.
    * Added gettext support thanks to Sergey Poznyakoff
    * Reworked the compiled dictionary format. Compiled dictionaries
    now take up less space (less than 80% for the English language)
    and creating them is significantly faster (over 4 times for
    the English language).
    * Reworked suggestion code. It is significantly faster when
    dealing with short words (up to 10 times). Also added support
    for MySpell Replacement Tables and n-gram lookup. In addition,
    added basic support for compound words.
    * Manual has has been converted to texinfo format thanks to
    the work of Chris Martin.
    * Reworked the build system so that a single Makefile is used
    for most of the code.
    * All data, by default, is now included in `LIBDIR/aspell-0.60'.
    Also added a built time option to increment the major version
    number of the shared library. This should allow both Aspell
    version 0.50 and 0.60 to coexist. The major version number is
    _not_ incremented by default as Aspell 0.60 is binary compatible
    with Aspell 0.50.
	NOTE: this is not true for pkgsrc.
    * The code to handle dictionaries has been rewritten. Because
    of this support for the dictionary option `strip-accents' has
    been removed. In addition the `ignore-accents' option is
    currently unimplemented.
    * Lots of other minor changes due to massive overhaul of the
    source code.
