Scribus is an open source page layout applications with many professional features including very high quality PDF, EPS, SVG import and export and CMYK color support. Scribus supports ICC color management, creates CMYK separations and interactive PDF's with form fields, scripting and presentation effects. Scribus has a powerful Python plug-in extending its abilities. Scribus is translated into 30 languages and has excellent end user support via mailing list and irc.


The Scribus Team is pleased to announce the release of Scribus 1.3.9.
This new release brings us closer to version the next stable release 1.4.

During this development period the team focused on stabilty and correctness.

Almost 60 bugs have been resolved since the release of 1.3.8. In addition,


FreeBSD and NetBSD are now fully supported by the build system.
Translation files are now generated at build time, reducing SVN download time. Thus, it is now also possible to limit the number of UI translations during build time to save time and disk space.


Items can now be copied, cut, pasted and deleted in the Scrapbook
Users can now select the Scrapbook folder when they are copying an item to the Scrapbook.


We have started adding new resources to the Scribus package, especially templates and colour palettes (among others Australian, British, French, Japanese and US national/government standard colour sets and Resene(R) colour palettes).
Template categories and names are now also available in German and Hungarian.
Standardised palettes are now protected from being inadvertently modified by a user.


Scribus is now protected against crashes caused by images with an embedded and faulty ICC profile.
The restriction of not offering import of Windows and OS/2 bitmap files (BMP) has been removed.
Some import issues with EPS files that don't conform to the specification have been resolved.


A script ("Autoquote") has been added to the Script menu that converts straight quotes in a text frame to correct quotation marks for many languages.
As of Scribus 1.3.9, hyphenation patterns for traditional German and Swiss German spelling are available.


Important parts of the Online Help have been rewritten or updated, and many new pages have been added. This is part of a major effort to align the information available via the Online Help with both Scribus's current feature set and the capabilities of the supported operating system platforms.
Translations of the Online Help have been temporarily disabled, since they need to be synchronised with the English version once the update is complete.

The Scribus Team considers this version to be quite stable and ready for
many real-world use cases. However, since there are still some
annoyances that prevent us from releasing version 1.4, more cautious
users may want to prefer to stick with the officially stable version

The Scribus Team will continue to implement new features and
improvements in our 1.5.0 development branch. Features that can be backported
may become part of the 1.4 milestone.

==Important Information==

Please note that we have branched our code repository:

* 1.3.8svn code (the next iteration of the development version and
prossibly the last before the release of 1.4) is available from the
"Version135"branch: (svn://scribus.info/Scribus/branches/Version135/)

* trunk (=experimental) is now versioned 1.5.0svn
(svn://scribus.info/Scribus/trunk) and continues to undergo heavy changes.
Please use this branch for testing only!

The Scribus Team recommends that all distributions package Scribus
as "Scribus" or "scribus". We recommend the additional packaging of 1.3.7
only if it is marked as a development version and can be installed
alongside an existing Scribus (for example as "scribus-ng").

An important reminder:
If you are working with 1.3.3.x and decide to implement some design
features available in 1.3.7, you should only work with a copy of your file,
since once it is saved in 1.3.7 format, you will not be able to open it again
with 1.3.3.x.

Similarly, if you are working with a team, try to make sure that all team
members use the same Scribus version -- this will avoid many headaches and
extra work.

 64-bit problems

 by DrMartinus on: Apr 24 2008
Score 50%

I was using the 64-bit version that was shipped with Mandriva PowerPack 2008.0. It worked perfectly, was very stable. Now I updated to Mnadriva PP 2008.1, and Scribus crashes every now and then without any reproducable reason. Always Signal #11. Also, I often do the following:
copy a text frame, then edit the text therein. However, when I save it, the text gets lost. So I have to enter the whole thing again. Now I just delete the text in the box (there's no way around), then save it, then write fresh.
I'm sure this is not meant, but it seems it doesn't work in any other way.

 One feature I'd like to see

 by thesupermadman on: May 2 2009

This is the most niggly thing I find about Microsoft Office and OpenOffice, that I would like to see here: could you make it so that, when you click-drag an object, could you set it to actually show the object being moved, rather then a dotted outline?

It's already much better then MS Office and OpenOffice, in that when you stop dragging, the object actually lands where you dragged it.

Good work so far - keep it up! My mother's still using Windows for Serif's PagePlus - it would be nice to be able to replace it. Thanks a bunch.

i think that one of the most needed features is a nice support for creating tables (including multipage ones)

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
