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.

 No text undo?!

 by bugmenot on: Feb 27 2007
Score 50%

I worked several years with desktop publishing and prepress, using almost all softwares (Quark, Pagemaker, Indesign, etc.) and even the simple one (maybe Pagemaker) had a text undo option.

Is sad that version after version of Scribus is released without this very simple feature.

I hope that one day we have really professional applications in this area. (Gimp is a joke and Scribus cannot compare to Indesign of Quark).

No, Pagemaker does not have an undo - except for one step - for all functions. Moreover, real layout pros do not edit text in a layout app. They compose in a text editor or word processor then import.

You obviously missed Windows > Action History.
A quick at your comments shows a :troll

"Pros don't edit text in the layout application..." Please, you know that is not true.

Windows > Action History, undo the text box not the text itself. What's wrong with Ctrl-Z to undo misspelled text, like any other application?

Instead of calling people trolls you need to learn to live with critics.

The open-source philosophy: lots of small, specialized applications. This is specialized for getting the layout right. Other programs are specialized for getting your words right. Using lots of individual, specialized tools is how Linux has become far better then Windows.

Besides, if I remember correctly, there's a universal undo button on all keyboards. Let me check... Oh yes, it's still there. It's called, "Backspace".

Thirdly, if you're going to mock a developer's work, don't expect them to do what you want. You're talking to people - volunteers, mostly - not some big company that you can yell and scream at until you get what you want. Maybe if you ask nicely, he'll give you a refund.

- "I'm the normal one, it's everyone else that's odd."
"That's self-contradictory; that would make it normal to be odd, and your being normal makes you odd compared to everyone else."

Well for those of you lucky enough to afford licenses for Quark and Photoshop I guess it must be difficult to get used to open source tools designed for some serious work.

I have a work around - use abiword to get your text right then paste it into your text box in Scribus. That's what I do. Scribus is a great tool and in combination with other applications very effective.

As for GIMP - I know it has limitations but then you can use Blender, Inkscape and Krita in combination with GIMP to do everything you can imagine. It is not a joke at all it is a brilliant application.

So by using my brain I am able to be very productive with open source software. I have no desire to spend £400 on a license so the I can make a glass orb with reflections in CMYK when I can just combine different tools to achieve this.

 Debian Packages

 by dovidhalevi on: May 9 2007
Score 50% package has broken dependencies, requires newer stdlibc, etc., than what is available on Sid!

I installed the 1.3.4 (scribus-ng) which does not have this problem.

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
