[ANN] Spell Check Plugin version 0.3

New version of the spelling checker is available:
http://www.intellij.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/SpellCheck

We haven't had chance to modify the checking routines yet, major changes in
this version are the addition of the configuration dialog (with the ability
to set/change dictionaries) and it's powered by a more recent (improved)
version of the Jazzy Engine.

If I unpack the zip file into c:\\plugins then the .jar file is placed in c:\\plugins\lib\SpellCheckPlugin.jar and when I start idea it does not seem to pick it up. Then I moved the jar to ]]>\plugins and it picked it up, but now it says it can not find the dictionary. It looks like it is looking for the dictionaries in ..\dictionaries. Is this a problem with the install or did I do something wrong?

It would also be very useful if I could say spell check only in comments and string constants.

No, no, no, no - damn that Winzip ;) you should unzip to a SpellCheckPlugin
directory under plugins, so it should look like this;

plugins/
SpellCheckPlugin/
libs/
SpellCheckPlugin.jar
dictionaries/
en/
...

Maybe I should redo the build script in the next version to add the extra
folder explictly - I tend to rely on winzip's extract to xxx..

I know, it's just finding the time I'm overstretched at the moment and with
the fulltime day-job there's only some many times a week you can stay up
till 1am or 2am in the morning fighting with the OpenApi and ropey dual IDEA
deploy plugin ..wait attach debug.. wait attach debug (sigh)

Honestly, there's been major changes with the Jazzy engine which was a
necessary hurdle and I felt it was more important to get the dictionaries
(especially for non-English users) and the persistent configuration
installed and working first..

Sorry if it sounded like I was complaining. We really appreciate the plugin, I love it and use it daily. The config screen looks great too!
