This is a (semi-)automated bug making you aware that there is an available upgrade for an embedded third-party library. You can leave this bug open, and it will be updated if a newer version of the library becomes available.

Hunspell is currently at version 1.6.0 in mozilla-central, and the latest version of the library released is 1.6.1.
