On-the-fly spellchecking in Kate

Christoph just added an awesome and long awaited feature: on-the-fly spellchecking. 'Kate's xml highlighting files now have an additional attribute in the itemData section: spellChecking="true/false". C++ comments and strings can be spellchecked now :) Same for all other languages such as Latex. Really big thanks to Michel Ludwig for the patch, good work! Screenshot for latex highlighting:

Where can I get this patch? Will it be available in 4.3, or only in 4.4?

And also icw Kile?

Please, please tell me that it's powered by Sonnet, one of the most awaited KDE4 pillar by me...

I discovered this by accident the other day while using eclipse. I prefer Kate to I was thinking to myself: "I wonder if this is possible in Kate too".

Great work!

Wow! Thanks for the work! Now, I can just shut the mouths up of people at work telling LaTeX is not so good because spellchecking is pooooor...just switch to a good/prof. text editor!! Even for your C/Python/{...} code...don't make mistakes in the documentation.

Ps: for the future....will it be hard to enhance this spellchecking with grammar check (as in word processing app)?

Big hurra for this patch!!!!
