Submission + - MuseScore 2.0 Released (

rDouglass writes: MuseScore, the open source desktop application for music notation, has released MuseScore 2.0 for Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows. This release represents the culmination of four years of development, including technical contributions from over 400 people. In addition to a completely new UI, top features include linked parts (good for pieces with many instruments), guitar tablature, flexible chord symbols, and fret diagrams. The program integrates directly with the online library of scores, and music written with the application can be displayed and played using the MuseScore mobile app.

I used FxCop too. It checks your code on many things, including spelling of function/variable/class names. You can turn most of the default rules in FxCop off, if you only need spellchecking, but the other rules are also very useful.
I'm not sure if FxCop checks the spelling of strings, used for messages and captions on the GUI, but it probably does.
