The Scribus Team is pleased to announce the release of Scribus 1.2.2 - Open 
Source Desktop Publishing. The Scribus team urges all users and distros to 
use this latest release.

Building on the 1.2.1 version released in January 2005, 1.2.2 consolidates the 
1.2 series with many fixes and some enhancements :

    * Numerous improvements to SVG import/exporter.
    * Over 130 bug reports and user feature requests have been squashed.
    * The 1.2.2 release also adds updated English documentation, along with 
many new GUI translation updates.
    * Support for OASIS (OpenOffice.org 2.0) writer and draw import.
    * Many locale and Unicode fixes and enhancements
    * More rendering speed

      After this release, the Scribus team will concentrate work on the 1.3.x 
development series, with a release of 1.3.0 imminent. We will continue to 
maintain the 1.2.x series, and already are working on version 1.2.3, with 
further enhancements to come.

      The Scribus Team would also like to thank Anduin.net/?verby Consulting
