Be careful with old versions!
These versions are displayed for reference and testing purposes. You should always use the latest version of an add-on.
Simple maintenance release - up-to-date with latest versions of Firefox, Thunderbird, and Seamonkey, and pulling in the latest SCOWL word lists.
Thanks to everyone who sent me suggestions - there are a bunch of new words in here, and the latest SCOWL updates as well.
The traditional update - I have merged the latest SCOWL wordlist with my collection of user suggestions, and updated the version compatibility for the latest versions of Firefox.
As always, please reach out to me with questions, comments, or suggestions.
Major update - the latest changes from the SCOWL wordlists were used as the basis for this update. Some of the recommended changes from my users were re-introduced; others were already present. As always, please let me know if you have problems or suggestions.
This version adds a handful of new words, and updates the compatibility information for the latest versions of Firefox.
The next version will be a major release, as I incorporate the latest upstream changes from SCOWL.
This version has a handful of minor additions to the word list, and is updated for compatibility with the newest versions of Firefox, Thunderbird, and Seamonkey.
As always, feel free to send suggestions my way!
This is a minor version update to ensure the manifest is compatible with upcoming versions of Firefox and Thunderbird, and to add a handful of requested Canadian city names.
Fairly substantial wordlist update, to bring the dictionary more in line with the en-US dictionary that ships with Firefox.
This update includes some additions to the word list based on user feedback, and the standard forward compatibility updates for Firefox and Thunderbird. As always, feedback is welcome!
This latest version adds a very few new words, but also updates the manifest to keep abreast of the ever-increasing version of Firefox.
Also, this version updates the Extension Type, which may impact compatibility with older versions of compatible applications. Please let me know if anyone has problems with installing the dictionary.
Minor update - keeping ahead of the Firefox version updates, and a handful of words that have been suggested since the last major revision.
This version adds a few variant spellings that have been brought to my attention, and updates the dictionary for the next several version iterations of Firefox and Thunderbird.
This update addresses multiple critical bugs that were introduced in the affix file in 2.0.2, including one that caused Firefox to crash. Please update to this version.
Version 2.0.2 release notes:
I've updated compatibility for the next few releases of Thunderbird and Firefox, and finally taken the install.js file out. Due to this, the dictionary is no longer compatible with versions of Seamonkey prior to Seamonkey 2.0. If this is a problem for any Seamonkey users, please let me know.
I've added some common words I noticed were lost in the upstream merge for version 2.0, and improved the guessing on a common misspelling. As always, let me know if you think the dictionary can be improved.
This latest update to the Canadian dictionary is mostly a compatibility update, to keep the dictionary working with Firefox and Thunderbird as their new versions come out.
Version 2.0.0Major Version Update
This major version update represents the integration of the latest SCOWL (http://wordlist.sourceforge.net/
) en-CA word list into my dictionary. I have incorporated most of the changes suggested to me through user feedback. Some changes had already been fixed in SCOWL, of course, and some words are deliberately excluded from SCOWL's spell-check library because they are uncommon. As such, there may appear to be regressions in this update - please feel free to continue to email me with your corrections, suggestions, and feedback.
This release is simply an installer update to support the latest versions of Firefox and Thunderbird.
There are no word changes in this release. The installer has been updated to support Seamonkey 2.0 and Thunderbird 3.0.
This is a substantial word list update, with some changes to the correction logic, too. Thanks to everyone who has contributed!
This version includes a few word updates, along with a few that were supposed to be included in previous versions that were somehow missed.
Also in this update is a minor compatibility update for Firefox 3.5.1
The latest version includes approximately 10 new words (plus variants) for the word list, as suggested by the many users of this add on. Thanks for all the help, everyone!
Minor compatibility updates for AMO, and a few minor wordlist updates. Keep the suggestions coming!
The first wordlist update! The dictionary I used to create this extension has become quite outdated, unfortunately, so I've taken some user feedback and added/corrected some common words.
Fixed in this version: Updated install script to be more useful for Seamonkey users.
Fixed in this version: The name of the language now appears correctly in the language selection menu.
