Yes, they do. 

Having tested the latest portable version, I have come to the conclusion that the problem lies with the font size with in the tex file editor window.
Fonts of 12 pt or under correctly display red underlining when an incorrect word is spelled. Any font size over 12 pt does not display red underlining.
This is rather troublesome as I prefer to have a larger font size when editing. Both the 2015 distro and the portable texworks release in the zip file seem to display this behavior.
Additionally in the 2015 version, when using a larger font, text highlighting does not appear immediately, but takes a few seconds to register. In other words, the texts starts out black for a few seconds before turning colorful. This appears to have been fixed in the portable version, but that may also be because the portable version is smaller and takes less time to load, so I don't know if it's really fixed or not.

Any suggestions?
