Hi all,

The latest round of ODF filter updates for Scribus has been finished last night with a completely rewritten ODT importer (kudos to Franz!). It not only supports more ODT features, but is also more tolerant when it comes to files not created by LibreOffice or OpenOffice.

All the new cool stuff, which also includes RTF, DOCX and finally working XTG import, will be very soon available in the development candidate 1.5.1. 

Those who build Scribus trunk for testing purposes are encouraged to throw as many ODF files as possible at the new Scribus ODF importers, especially files *not* created by LO/AOO, e.g. MS Office, WordPerfect Office, TextMaker Office, iWorks, Calligra etc.

The currently supported file formats are: ODT, ODG, and ODP.

Happy testing!
