Version increment to 2.6.6

now it comes with the possibility to use spell checking through one of this 3 options:

  • a statically compiled sexy-spell-entry
  • libsexy
  • gtkspell (note this option replaces the input box to a GtkTextView widget)

the two first options uses Enchant as the spelling backend, while gtkspell uses aspell as the spelling backend

as a side note, the forum page where this information is extracted from suggest that, if in doubt, the first option is advised as it doesn't have any special requirement or dependency

to enable spell checking at compile time --enable-spell=[type] needs to be passed to the script configure, where [type] is one of the following: static, libsexy or gtkspell

Comments about the previous notes:

You don't have to pass any parameter for spell-checking. It will choose which option by examining the system.
