- fix Source patch, spec-cleaned
2017-02-27 - sfalken@opensuse.org
- Update to version 1.8.1:
* New version of German-English translation file, now over 345,000 entries
* Minor bug fixes
2014-12-11 - jengelh@inai.de
- Update to new upstream release 1.8
* New version of German-English translation file,
now over 326,000 entries (up from 270,000).
* Minor bug fixes.
- Split the dictionary file so as to not mandate installation of
the Tk frontend.
- Downgrade ispell dictionary requirements into recommendations;
ding works without them, too.
- Add missing ispell Recommends (just having the dictionaries does
not help, the program is needed).
- Also recommend agrep, which the Tk frontend prefers for full
functionality (approximate matching).
- Suggest fortune, because ding even supports searching that.
- Minor cleanups: use rpm macros in place of rpm shell vars.
