Hi all,

As of tonight, Scribus 1.5.4svn provides an important new feature, which is another "first" (like PDF/X-3 export or the HLC colour picker), namely support for the open and versatile standard for colour palettes CxF3 (https://www.xrite.com/de/page/cxf-color-exchange-format).

CxF not only enables the use of spectral colours in graphics applications, but also allows for the use of different versions of a colour palette within a single file (e.g. sRGB, AdobeRGB, CMYK [FOGRA39], CMYK [FOGRA52] etc.). You can now choose the version required for a particular project upon import.

Updated versions for Windows are already available, DMGs for Mac will be available soon under https://sourceforge.net/projects/scribus/files/scribus-svn/1.5.4.svn/

Linux testers can build the update as usual, because there are no new dependencies involved.

Happy testing and many thanks to Jean Ghali for the implementation!
