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.
Some additional scripts have been added to enhance functionality.
More translation and documentation updates.
Several fixes to protect against possible crashes.
Improvements to the Scripter to enable more features.

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 or 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. 

Source and some rpms (updated today):
* OS/2 packages are expected soon there too.

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.
