I have a full colour book going to press at the moment, and it's so good to see
PDF/X-1a export backported at last to the 1.4.x branch. SO GOOD. The first time
I did this, I had so much trouble finding a program which would take the
original scribus file and export to PDF/X-1a without modifying the content
unexpectedly, and to produce an LSI compatible PDF.

This time round the cleanly exported PDF/X-1a full colour cover has been
accepted by the LightningSource pre-media team "out of the box".

I am still doing final editing to the full colour interior, but I should have
feedback for that item in the next week or so.
