Description László Németh 2011-02-08 04:23:12 UTC
Please, update Hunspell library to version 1.3.1. This version contains several 
improvements especially for Dutch, German and other Germanic languages with 
extended compound word usage. The development was supported by OpenTaal 
Foundation and Dutch Language Union, see also http://sf.own-
Firefox integration is in progress, see my comment about verification on English 
and German word lists: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=620626#c43.
(spell checking and morphological analysis also tested on a 1 million-word Hungarian database).

Source: http://sourceforge.net/projects/hunspell/files/Hunspell/1.3.1/hunspell-

A patch for the hunspell module is also attached.

Caolan, could you help in Hunspell update? Thanks in advance.
Comment 3 Caolán McNamara 2011-02-08 05:12:56 UTC
Which reminds me, do you have commit access to LibreOffice ?, 


It'd be good to have you able to commit these updates in directly without messing around with middle-men :-)

I have fixed the Visual C++ warnings reported from Mozilla volunteer Ryan VanderMeulen, so I hope, too. Many thanks for your help.

Hunspell 1.3.3 came out June 2, 2014:

Comment 9 Adolfo Jayme 2014-06-08 14:37:32 UTC
Do not just reopen old bugs when new versions come out. Please file new ones instead.

Library related parts of Hunspell 1.3.3 (including the improved long Windows path name support), have already been parts of LibreOffice, as patches, so it is not need to update the library. Thanks for your report! László
Comment 11 penttila 2014-07-15 13:16:12 UTC
Even in that case when all modifications of Hunspell 1.3.3 are included as patches in the used/current version it would be nicer to update the whole library. This would create a clear situation for everybody without any further explanation! Is it such a big work? 

I think the same applies for Hyphen. The last version is 2.8.7!
Comment 12 Thomas Arnhold 2014-07-19 13:17:07 UTC
penttilla: We use Hypen 2.8.7 on master, see http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/external/hyphen?id=77af6cd18c2df43b75cd2c973a5267647de2f6e5
