It is not yet available through the LibreOffice/OpenOffice extension manager because I’d like to wait for feedback from people who install it manually.


With 6.0, will it - finally - be possible to specify a mandatory language for a text / web page? We work (in german) with scientific references, which are nearly always in English. It limits the usability unspeakably if LT doesn’t find its way back to the language of the main text after a citation. We really don’t need a spell checker for source citations.

We would be able to work much better if the characters between certain adjustable strings (in our case (( and )), which mark the beginning and end of the source citation) could be excluded from the spell check. But it doesn’t even have to go that far.

it seems like this release requires CXXABI_1.3.9. are such dependency changes documented anywhere?

Where do you see that dependency? I can’t recall adding such a dependency. We don’t document them, as Maven should take care of getting all dependencies.
