Subtitle Edit 3.5.16

A new release is out again!

Important fixes: Spell check dictionary download should work again (LibreOffice changed download links), the WinKey should no longer freeze SE, and auto-break should work with dialogs again.

New stuff: OCR method "nOCR" which hopefully works well for e.g. Blu-ray .sup files. Can also be trained with your own font/letters.

Read the full change log here.

Thx to all contributors and happy summer <3
