gets update with multiple language support and spell checking

Microsoft FUSE Labs just rolled out an update to their service, touted a “major backend update” with performance and stability improvements. In addition, this update also introduced support for 30 different languages (dialects) which allows users to create documents in their own languages – or even mix multiple languages in the same document. Together with this, also now supports spell checking in the 30 different languages supported. Here’s a screenshot of this in action:
