> -- The first 1.3.5 beta release --
> Concurrently, the team is pleased to announce the long awaited first
> beta of the 1.3.5 development branch which will eventually lead towards the
> next stable 1.4.x release.
> 1.3.5 is a major release with many new features, a rewritten canvas
> and text layout engine and a complete port of Scribus to QT4. Almost 1000 bugs
> and feature requests were resolved during this release. Notably, performance
> and stability are dramatically improved on MacOSX.
> While we are not announcing a complete string freeze for the 1.3.5
> release, we would encourage translators to begin the process as the time to
> 1.3.5 release is close with all roadmap issues now resolved. We expect a total
> string freeze within a week.
> With 1.3.5, the minimum Qt version supported is Qt 4.4.0, so
> installing it on older linux distributions may be difficult. In
> addition users should be warned that 1.3.3.x cannot open 1.3.5 files.
> So users are recommended to only use backups or duplicate copies when
> opening older version files with 1.3.5.
> We now recommend all distributions package only Scribus 126.96.36.199. We
> would only recommend packaging 1.3.5svn releases if they are marked as
> experimental or development only.
Huge thanks ! This certainly feels nicer than the earlier windows svn I
Is the way to enable spell checking under windows documented anywhere
Many thanks again, J/.
