I do not know the answer to this question, since the author stopped updating it
long ago. I recommend cocoAspell instead.

Excalibur is written with Carbon, a 32 bit library, and Apple is discouraging 32 bit apps
in the latest High Sierra update (not yet released). This will continue for one or two years
and then they will drop support for 32 bit apps.

We are discussing when to stop providing Excalibur. No conclusions yet.
