Spellchecker can now use your native dictionary

Interested in making less typos when writing in their native language? v0.6.0 of GitHub - jupyterlab-contrib/spellchecker: Spellchecker for JupyterLab notebook markdown cells and file editor. extension can now use any Hunspell dictionary, auto-detecting dictionaries installed in known locations on Linux and Mac (contributions with other known locations, including for Windows welcome!) or using dictionaries from a dictionaries folder located in any of jupyter --paths for data.

This update also comes with an advantage of using less memory because only the dictionary that is actually used will be loaded.

Users who previously installed the extension via Extension Manager or jlpm labextension install will need to install this version using pip or conda instead for the dictionaries to work.
