The Scribus Team is pleased to announce the second release candidate of
Scribus 1.3.5 (1.3.5.RC3)

This release adds the following over the previous release candidate:
* Fixes to the story editor
* Some PDF/CJK export 	 fixes
* Scripter and Image Frame fixes
* Import/export plugins for text and image frames updated

As noted with the prior RC announcements, please note we have branched our
code repository:
* 1.3.5 will be released from the new branches/Version135 branch
* trunk is now versioned 1.5.0svn and remains the development area
  (svn://scribus.info/Scribus/trunk) and has already undergone many
  changes in the last month
Please update your notes/scripts to reflect this change.

1.3.5 will be a major release with many new features, a rewritten canvas
and text layout engine and a complete port of Scribus to Qt4. Almost
1100 bugs and feature requests were resolved during this release period.

Scribus 1.4.0 will  be released based on 1.3.5 code.

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 We
would only recommend additional packaging of 1.3.5svn/1.5.0svn releases
if they are marked as experimental or development only.
