Scribus 1.4.5 Released

The Scribus Team is pleased to announce the release of Scribus 1.4.5. (wiki version of announcement: http://wiki.scribus.net/canvas/1.4.5_Release)

Scribus 1.4.5 is almost exclusively a bugfixing and update release, including many corrections backported from 1.5.0svn.
Note: Scribus 1.5.0, the preview of the next stable Scribus release (1.6.0), is supposed to be released for testing purposes early in 2015.

Most Important Changes

	* Scribus is now being shipped with the most recent version of the PostScript Barcode Generator.
	* Updates to the Scripter that enable more control on PDF export. There is also a new command in Scripter, applyMasterPage(), which allows you to apply an existing Master Page via scripter.
	* Updates to the Resene color palettes, including, for the first time, The Resene Total Colour System (TCS) Master Palette.
	* Many translation updates and improvements.
	* Usability improvements.
	* Better application icons.
	* New templates.
	* The OS X application bundle now contains the path tools for mesh distortion again, and is now code signed (v1 code signing, due to the OS X 10.5 Leopard build).
