Dear Scribus users,

How time flies ... Yesterday evening Franz mentioned in passing that he 
started writing Scribus exactly ten years ago, and as we all know, his baby is 
no longer a baby and has grown considerably. Peter will publish some memories 
of the early days of Scribus development on our developer blog 
(rants.scribus.net) tomorrow.

While we all certainly wished that 1.4 would have been released on this 
occasion, this will have to wait a few weeks or months longer. In the meantime 
I have a smaller birthday present for the subscribers of this list. The 
British publisher Packt Publishing has just released an English version of 
Cedric Gemy's Scribus Beginner's Guide 
(https://www.packtpub.com/scribus-1-3-5-beginners-guide/book), which covers 
Scribus 1.3.5 and hence 1.3.6--1.4+ as well. The book is available in print 
and as an eBook. As some of you know, Cedric is a long-term contributor to 
Scribus and an experienced lecturer on graphics design at various French 

Subscribers to the Scribus mailing list are being offered a 20% discount off 
the book price. To buy the book at the reduced price, you need a Packt account 
and insert a password, which is SCRIBG20 (case sensitive), to the shopping 

As for the rest of you who don't need a Scribus book, open a bottle of 
champagne and celebrate with us.
