- updated to 0.19
  - for more consistent results avoid using the user's local aspell
    dictionary [ #56483] (Karen Etheridge)
  - Work around Pod::Spell limitations (David Golden)
  - Improve case handling (David Golden)
  - Improve test failure reporting (Karen Etheridge)
  - Include more useful info in Test-Spelling's own test
    suite (Shawn Moore)
  - Use IPC::Run3 instead of IPC::Open3
    Quoth IPC::Open3:
    If you try to read from the child's stdout writer
    and their stderr writer, you'll have problems with
    blocking ... This is very dangerous, as you may
    block forever.
    Also the code is nicely shorter. (Randy Stauner)
  - Allow use of a custom POD parser rather than Pod::Spell
    using set_pod_parser (Thomas Sibley)
* Mon Dec 19 2011
- update to 0.15
  - Begin adding actual tests
    (Hilariously, adding the suggested t/pod-spell.t to this
    dist to test itself found a typo: "stopwards")
  - Fix an error when using add_stopwords("constant", "strings")
    [ #68471] (reported by Nicholas Bamber)
  - Make alternatives checking more robust by reading the spellchecker's
  - Best Practical has taken over maintainership of this module
  - Try various spellcheck programs instead of hardcoding the ancient
    `spell` [ #56483] (reported by Lars D??????, et al)
  - Remove temporary files more aggressively [ #41586]
    (reported by Tokuhiro Matsuno)
  - fixed by not creating them at all :) instead we now use IPC::Open3
  - Remove suggestion to use broken `aspell -l` [ #28967]
    (reported by David Hand)
  - Add set_pod_file_filter for skipping translations, etc.
  - Skip tests in all_pod_files_spelling_ok if there is no working
  - Provide a has_working_spellchecker so you can skip your own tests if
    there's no working spellchecker
  - Switch to Module::Install
  - Rewrite and modernize a lot of the documentation
