The Scribus Team is pleased to announce the release of Scribus 18.104.22.168 and the first beta release of 1.3.5 from the development series.
-- 22.214.171.124 / stable release -- This release add the following: * Several fixes and improvements to gradients and PDF export. * More translation and documentation updates. * Improvements to the Scripter to enable more features. In addition to the release of a new stable version, the Scribus Documentation Team has recently completed its task and published a 450-page printed Official Scribus Manual for Scribus 1.3.3.x. The book is the most complete documentation of Scribus's many features so far. It's available for orders directly from the publisher (http://www.flesbooks.com/scribus1.3manual) or via online bookstores. -- The first 1.3.5 beta release -- Concurrently, the team is pleased to announce the long awaited first beta of the 1.3.5 development branch which will eventually lead towards the next stable 1.4.x release. 1.3.5 is a major release with many new features, a rewritten canvas and text layout engine and a complete port of Scribus to QT4. Almost 1000 bugs and feature requests were resolved during this release. Notably, performance and stability are dramatically improved on MacOSX. While we are not announcing a complete string freeze for the 1.3.5 release, we would encourage translators to begin the process as the time to 1.3.5 release is close with all roadmap issues now resolved. We expect a total string freeze within a week. With 1.3.5, the minimum Qt version supported is Qt 4.4.0, so installing it on older linux distributions may be difficult. In addition users should be warned that 1.3.3.x cannot open 1.3.5 files. So users are recommended to only use backups or duplicate copies when opening older version files with 1.3.5. We now recommend all distributions package only Scribus 126.96.36.199. We would only recommend packaging 1.3.5svn releases if they are marked as experimental or development only. -- Primary Download Location -- Binaries, Source and some rpms (updated today): http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=125235 * OS/2 packages are expected soon there too. -- Further Download Options -- 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 9,10 RPMS: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/mrdocs/Fedora_9/ http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/mrdocs/Fedora_10/ openSUSE RPMS SLE 10& SLE 11,11.0,11.1: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/mrdocs Mandriva 2009 http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/mrdocs/Mandriva_2009/ MacOSX: http://aqua.acribus.net Windows 2000/XP: http://www.scribus.net -- Source Verification -- sha1sums: fc6c59f58253bf75c79e3ad6001951190f248c74 scribus-188.8.131.52.7z 75ab40fdf9c93de1243f1dc018a5e245f99ec85a scribus-184.108.40.206.tar.bz2 5700b3b1ec380a130f3fa7c708bb8606bda8afbd scribus-1.3.5.beta.7z c352eebb61cffd7e3071c369d1dcddc2a7be9d5b scribus-1.3.5.beta.tar.bz2 The Scribus Team would also like to thank - Anduin.net/Øverby Consulting for their continued hosting of all of the Scribus websites.

About Scribus Scribus is a cross-platform open source page layout application with a focus on high quality commercial grade PDF and postscript export. Originally developed on Linux, Scribus runs natively on MacOSX, OS/2, most forms of Unix and Windows 2000/XP. Underneath the modern and user friendly interface, Scribus supports professional publishing features, such as CMYK color, spot colors, separations, ICC color management and versatile PDF creation. Scribus was the first page layout application on the planet to directly support PDF/X-3 output, a rigorous ISO standard. Scribus did so by almost a year.
