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 bugs were found and 
fixed, many improvements to the SVG importer. A new splash screen and 
other artwork were contributed by Kevin Young.

One of two major additions to this release is the porting of Scribus 
to OS/2 by Paul Smedley. This port is lightly tested and there are 
some known issues noted in the readme for OS/2, along with notes on 
installation. No major code changes were required and in testing it 
has been fairly stable.

The other is the availability of a new OpenSuse rpm download 
repository for all Suse versions 9.3+, including SLED 10. To download 
add: http://software.opensuse.org/download/home:/mrdocs/ to your 
yast/apt/smart source list for the corresponding Suse version. We 
hope have this for Mandriva and Fedora 5+ shortly. 

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 now runs natively on MacOSX, 
OS/2, many 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.

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.
