The Scribus Team is pleased to announce the release of Scribus 
This release is purely a further bug fix release to the recently

This release adds more translation updates, some corner case crash 
bugs were found and fixed, some fixes for PDF settings and 
correctness were made as well. 

The two major additions to this release is the backporting of cmake 
build support and an upgrade checker for new Scribus releases. 

The Scribus Team has been very pleased from our experience testing 
cmake with the 1.3.4cvs development and wishes to have as widespread 
testing as possible on as many platforms. We anticipate using cmake 
exclusively for 1.3.5. 

As we announced previously, there will be no more development or bug 
fixes to 1.2.x series. We now recommend all distributions package 
only Scribus 1.3.3.x

The Scribus Team would also like to thank - Anduin.net/?verby
Consulting and Cardia AS for their continued hosting of all of the
Scribus websites.

The Scribus Team would also like to thank the many end users,
translators, testers and contributors who helped us with this

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 Windows 
2000/XP and MacOSX.

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.

The Scribus Team is made up of a diverse group of developers with 
significant experience in pre-press and newspaper publishing. 
Commercial support for Scribus is available for companies and 
institutions for implementation, training and migration.
