it seems not to work with 3.1 NL on my system. Is it compatible?

It is compatible with 3.1

There didn't change anything for extensions

How does this compare against the other hunspell Frisian dictionary, i.e available packaged as a firefox extension (firefox uses hunspell as well) at (

that README has...

This dictionary is based on the ispell version of the Frisian wordlist created
and original copyright by the "Fryske Akademy".

and seems to have a lot more words in it ?

The wordlist of the firefox extension is as you noticed from the Fryske akademy and is therefore a complete list.
It's the same as used in the spellchecker for MS Word.

The list used for OpenOffice is a free and open list and therefore small in compared to the other but it's still groing.
Using the Fryske Akademy list isn't an option at the moment(signing a lisence for use, causes not really an Open situation)

FWIW the firefox .dic has a top-comment with a claim of...

'* Fryske staveringwurdlist v.xx-xx-xx'
'* Copyright (c) 2008, Fryske Akademy, en oaren.'
'* Lisinsje: LGPL, sjoch op'

Yes I now that's there,
I also tried to get some info on what is claimed, and no-one could/would confirm that's it is really LGPL .
