CTAN Update: spelling
This package supports spell-checking of TeX documents compiled with the LuaTeX engine. It can give visual feedback in PDF output similar to WYSIWYG word processors. The package relies on an external spell-checker application that can check a plain text file and output a list of bad spellings. The package should work with most spell-checkers, even dumb, TeX-unaware ones. v0.4 (2013-05-23) New features: - In addition to lists of bad and good spellings, words can be checked against user-defined match rules to determine highlighting status. Changes: - Removed means to configure EOL character of text output file. Standard Lua EOL character is always used, which is platform dependent. - Improved compatibility with recent LuaTeX versions (v0.74 and newer). - File <jobname>.spell.xml is loaded before file <jobname>.spell.bad (if both files exist). Fixes: - Bad words with surrounding punctuation haven't been highlighted. Determining whether a word needs to be highlighted is now done by checking against the lists of bad and good spellings words as they appear in the document with possible punctuation as well as with all surrounding punctuation stripped (GitHub issue 8). - Macro \spellingoutputlinelength was broken. - Raising an error when a file cannot be opened for reading causes problems when compiling a document for the first time. Now, only a warning is written to the console and log file in that case.
