Yeeeee Haaaa !

After all these years !!   (User since

One of the bleats I've had from people who are probably just too idle to 
learn Scribus is that 'it doesn't even have a spelling checker' !

I think this was pretty much the last key feature that was missing. 
Plenty of bugs to fix and many wonderful things can still be added of 
course, but thank you so much for sorting this !

Is there a windows installer for 1.4.2 yet ?

Is Hunspell the same spell checker as Open Office uses ?  If so, will it 
share the same dictionaries ?

Many thanks, J/.
