The Scribus Team is pleased to announce the release of Scribus 1.3.4 Антон
Almost one year in the making, this release brings Scribus to a new plateau in professional print capabilities, innovative features and a completely re-written text layout engine. Among the major new features in 1.3.4: * A rewritten preview mode which allows designers and artists to view layouts on screen as readers with color viewing deficiencies would view a document. Thus, this enables a designer to avoid color combinations which affect legibility. * Major additions to TIFF/PSD support. This includes the ability to use clipping paths in TIFF and PSD files to allow text wrapping.In addition, Scribus now can import special flavors of EPS exported from Photoshop known as Desktop Color Separations (version 1.0 and 2.0). Layers, blend modes, Duo,Tri and Quadtone PSD files are now also supported. * The new styles and text capabilities include style inheritance for paragraphs, character styles and line styles. This is now managed by a new style manager palette. * The new text layout engine has a multitude of enhancements for vastly better more appealing justification, including the use of optical margins and more sophisticated word spacing algorithms. *New pre-press capabilities including, registration marks, crop marks, calibration bars and document meta info. These are all easily managed within the print and PDF export dialogs. * Color management enhancements including better CMYK > CMYK conversions. * A rewritten and more capable Scrapbook * Support for patterns; both bitmap and vector * A more capable Align and Distribute Palette * Extended Multiple Copying *New transparency features including blend modes for layers and individual objects * A new cross-platform Icon set from the Tango Project Detailed release notes: (EN) http://www.scribus.net/releases/1.3.4/Scribus-1.3.4.EN_releasenotes.pdf (DE) http://www.scribus.net/releases/1.3.4/Scribus-1.3.4.DE_releasenotes.pdf Downloads: Source and some rpms: http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=125235 Upstream Debian/Ubuntu repo: http://debian.scribus.net Ubuntu users are advised to see: http://wiki.scribus.net/index.php/Getting_Scribus_on_Ubuntu/Kubuntu_up_and_running Fedora 5/6 RPMS: http://software.opensuse.org/download/home:/mrdocs/Fedora_Extras_6/repodata/ http://software.opensuse.org/download/home:/mrdocs/Fedora_Extras_5/repodata/ Opensuse RPMS 10.0, SLE 10,10.1,10.2: http://software.opensuse.org/download/home:/mrdocs/ MacOSX: http://aqua.acribus.net Windows 2000/XP: http://windows.scribus.net The Scribus Team would also like to thank - Anduin.net/Øverby Consulting and Cardia AS for their continued hosting of all of the Scribus websites.
