Sort of...

You still can get the lprof package ( I think) from debian. That is the 
package with the visual profiling tools. They are unmaintained and Marti 
Maria, the developer no longer wishes to support them. Longer term, there is 
work on-going to provide a system wide monitor for x.org

A "canned" profile from the manufacturer in the absence of anything else is 
better than nothing. They are based on sampling and can't be relied on for 
exact, pro level DTP work. I have a client with 6 pro DTP grade monitors - 
all the same model and age. There are subtle differences and it takes 
hardware to really profile them properly.

The CMS docs are being (heavily) re-written, to reflect the current situation 
and note the new capabilities in Scribus CMS.
