Last changelog:

6 years ago

The Scribus Team is pleased to announce the release of Scribus 1.4.4, as well as new partnerships with respect to newspaper publishing.

Scribus 1.4.4 is mostly a bugfixing release, but it also adds a number of new features, some of which are relevant for newspaper production.

It will likely be the last release in the 1.4.x branch, and the Scribus Team will from now on solely focus on the development of the next major version 1.6. We expect to make available a first alpha release (version number 1.5.0) in the course of 2014.
Most Important Changes

PDF/X-1a export.

The Barcode plug-in has been updated to reflect the latest changes in the underlying Barcode Writer in Pure PostScript (BWIPP).

The Autoquote script has been rewritten and enhanced. It now provides more options and adds thin spaces to French texts where appropriate.

A script to align images in frames has been added.

Full support of the OpenICC Directory Proposal (http://www.oyranos.org/wiki/index.php?title=OpenIccDirectoryProposal).

The handling of transparencies in Photoshop-generated TIFF files has been improved.

Page borders can now act as guides (and thus be used for snapping of items).

The CMYK color palette created by the Newspaper Association of America (NAA) for newspaper advertisements has been integrated into Scribus.

A new color palette for professional geographers has been added.

Export to various bitmap formats has been re-enabled on Mac OS X.

Several issues related to the user interface and canvas display have been resolved.

Adjustments for Windows 8.x.

An issue with the spellchecker, resulting in a crash, has been resolved.

Documentation and translation updates and improvements.

New Industry Partnerships with SCS and the NAA

The Scribus Team is honored and proud to proclaim a new partnership with a leading provider of newspaper systems, namely Software Consulting Services, LLC (http://www.newspapersystems.com), the co-inventor of QuarkXTensions. SCS is already offering a plug-in called ScrImLay, which is written in Python and licensed under the GPL. ScrImLay enables import of Layout-8000 geometry files into Scribus and offers the same functionalities as the respective plug-ins for InDesign and QuarkXPress. A comparison between the results in InDesign, QuarkXPress and Scribus can be found here: http://bit.ly/1cBVcdC.

Scribus is also being supported for ad building from within SCS's CAS/CDS (Community Advertising Services/Community Display Services) application.

SCS will not only promote Scribus and support customers willing to migrate, but also contribute to the development of Scribus itself.

With almost 40 years of experience in building trusted newspaper systems, a credible history of open source contributions since 1991, and a proven track record with respect to new technologies, SCS is looking forward to create the next generation of newspaper software in cooperation with the Scribus Team.

Thanks to the efforts of SCS, Scribus 1.4.4 is being shipped with the latest version of the CMYK color set created and recommended by the Newspaper Association of America (NAA) for newspaper printing. This is another "first" for Scribus, comparable to being the first program to support PDF/X-3, as Scribus is, at this juncture, the only DTP software that provides the latest version of the official NAA color set.

Im not a big DTP user but until now everytime i DID have to use DTP i had to boot into windows, now thankfully i dont, however it would be better if you added the ability to start the program from the main menu instead of the command line, there's nothing wrong with the command line, but its nice to be able to load programs from the main menu. And im not sure about this whether this is already included or not, but compatibility with .pub files. I think with these two features the program will be near perfection and its fantastic already!

It is dependent on the distro packager to install menu icons. There is a well known method using freedesktop.org standards. In the Scribus source tarball there is a scribus.desktop file, which has the menu info and icon info. This was recently updated to adhere to the latest specs.

As for MS Pub compatibility, very unlikely. There is an FAQ on www.scribus.net which thoroughly explains why. In particular, MS Pub files are not even compatible between versions.

Hi!

I'm no DTP expert whatsoever, but maybe it would be nice to create a template to create CD covers. Or would this application be a bit overkill for such a thing?

As a professional in publishing , I really liked Scribus.
IMHO it is , in certain points ( like scripting( w/Python) and PDF production, superior to ALL other DTP programs.

Scribus, while strictly not a KDE app, integrates very well within KDE, including inheriting KDE style plug-ins. From a look and feel, it is very seamless. It can also use Kprinter, as well, but has its own specialized printer dialog with CUPS integration.
The decision to keep it as a strictly Qt app has also helped in cross-platform porting, by avoiding unecessary dependencies. It is already available on MacOSX via Fink and a native Windows port is underway - impossible if it had KDE depenencies.

You're right about the KDE dependencies. But that does not mean *optional* KDE integration wouldn't be very nice. If you could just detect during configure whether KDE is available and in that case enable some options to use some KDE dialogs that would be great, for example.
