For daily use I'd much prefer KM1.6beta, since KM1.7 is a very early and rather buggy alpha version yet, just meant for testing.
Another additional bugfix for KM1.6b2, that "embed.jar" thing recently:
If you use 1.6beta 2 without having changed anything in
k-meleon/chrome/ folder of your installation, the browser will crash if you drag content in the window that pops up from Error Console. Scrolling/resizing will crash too.
If you want to use it like in KM 1.54 you can download a
replacement for K-Meleon/chrome/embed.jar from dhost.
Overwrite embed.jar in K-Meleon/chrome/ with it.
K-Meleon must be configured for the changes on next start.
So shut down K-Meleon and delete these files:
%Path To Your Profile%\xul.mfl (search disk for it)
It will create new ones.
A note regarding the spellchecker, the two files that guenter listed specifically are the important ones for the function. The other files are just for info and can be kept in a separate folder or outside.
The help text is for the older version with the much more complicated installation, find it rather confusing for the new one. Better ignore it for KM1.6+, just extract the dll and kmm file into the right folder, that's all
Well, and due to another tiny little bug in that beta version, the new word suggestions only appear if the cursor is also placed inside a word, not just the mouse hovering over it ;-) So first left-click on a word, then right-click and choose "spell" in the menu, to see the other words and languages.
