Just fixing the Aqua link and the LGM location.



The Scribus Team is pleased to announce the release of Scribus

This stable release adds the following:

Several fixes and improvements to text frames and the Story Editor.
New Arabic Translation.
More translation and documentation updates.
Many improvements to PDF Forms exporting and non-Latin script handling in 
Several fixes to protect against possible crashes.
Improved Color Managed Display in some cases. 
Some fixes to the Scripting plugin.

One of the major additions to this release is the final complete German 
translation of the Scribus documentation by Christoph Sch?fer and Volker 
Ribbert. This is a very well done translation and the Scribus Team wishes to 
thank them for their efforts. 

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, nor do we recommend packaging 1.3.4 o4 1.3.5svn
releases unless they are marked as experimental or development only.

The Scribus Team is working steadily on finishing the Qt4 port of Scribus with 
1.3.5svn and expects to release this in the coming months. 

The Scribus Team will also participate again at the Third Libre Graphics 
Meeting in Wroc?aw, Poland in May. LGM is open to all and the team welcomes 
seeing users, contributors and potential developers. For more info see:

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.
