GNU Aspell is a spell checker designed to eventually replace Ispell. It can either be used as a library or as an independent spell checker. Its main feature is that it does a superior job of suggesting possible replacements for a misspelled word than just about any other spell checker out there for the English language. Unlike Ispell, Aspell can also easily check documents in UTF-8 without having to use a special dictionary. Aspell will also do its best to respect the current locale setting. Other advantages over Ispell include support for using multiple dictionaries at once and intelligently handling personal dictionaries when more than one Aspell process is open at once.
asNews is a simple news retrieving and parsing program which gets the news from the net and shows it in your desktop. It's currently able to fetch the news from Freshmeat, LinuxToday, Slashdot, Segfault, KDE, LinuxApps, BBC, CentralEurope, 7AM, LinuxDev, GeekNews, IceWalkers, AppWatch, Hotwired and Mozilla. It also has two GTK-based X11 interfaces: a very simple one used for easy integration with your Window Manager and a complete, comfortable GUI.
asmutils is a set of miscellaneous utilities written in assembly language, targeted on embedded systems and small distributions (e.g. installation or rescue disks). It also contains a small libc and a crypto library. It is optimized for size, memory usage, and speed, and offers fairly good functionality. The project supports Linux and the BSD family. Unixware, Solaris, and AtheOS support is in beta stage. This package also aims to provide a portable development framework, and to encourage assembly programmers to write for Linux/Unix.
