Confirmed with voikkospell on OSX 10.7 (both mhr and the voikko/3/ loading). I need some more time to build the newest LibreOffice plugin, and test it. I will probably not manage within the firs couple of days.

I will update our build scripts and documentation accordingly.

Thanks for the good work :)
