JOrtho is a spell checker for Java. The library works with any JTextComponent from the Swing framework and checks as you type. The dictionary is based on the free, and is applicable for multiple languages. You can select the spell checking language via a context menu. The Features of JOrtho are the highlighting of potentially wrongly spelled words, a context menu with suggestions for correct forms of the word, and a context menu with option to change the checking language. At the moment there are nine languages for spell checking available: English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Polish, Dutch, and Arabic.

The dictionary is reloaded after deleting a word from the custom dictionary. The temporary memory usage on loading a dictionary is reduced. A bug is fixed in the suggestion list when there are shorter words that start with the same characters. A translation for Danish is added. Words ending with a period are checked now. Handles a colon like a period: the next word can start in upper case. Adds a tool for converting a plain text file with words to a dictionary. Dictionaries are searched in the classpath if there is no base URL. Handles words with curly apostrophes for the French wiktionary.
