The web site, <http://cocoaspell.leuski.net/> says it's for 10.3.9 and later but the README says it's for 10.5 and later. I tested it on Snow Leopard on my MacBook Pro and the Leopard-PPC version on my PowerBook and both seem to work fine. You'll have to choose up your dictionary in the CocoAspell Preference Pane again and may have to set up the dictionary in the Spelling (& Grammar) settup in TeXShop or some other application (e.g., TextEdit) and finally, with Snow Leopard, make sure the Spelling choice is your preferred Aspell dictionary in System Preferences->Language & Text->Text Preference Pane.

Hmmm... didn't notice the statement on the web page and wonder if it is also a leftover from previous versions; e.g., the web site says it's for 10.3.9+ while the README says it's for 10.5+. The README and the Preference Pane say it's version 2.1 with no beta designation. It seems to be very stable for me but there are some reported problems (see the web site) with R->L scripts.

Good Luck,
