MEPIS 12 Community Repository: The Scribus Thread

#1 Post by Stevo » Wed Jun 04, 2014 11:30 pm

The new stable release of Scribus, www.scribus.net, 1.4.4, is available in the testing repo.

Image
Scribus is an Open Source program that brings professional page layout to Linux, BSD UNIX, Solaris, OpenIndiana, GNU/Hurd, Mac OS X, OS/2 Warp 4, eComStation, and Windows desktops with a combination of press-ready output and new approaches to page design.

Underneath a modern and user-friendly interface, Scribus supports professional publishing features, such as color separations, CMYK and spot colors, ICC color management, and versatile PDF creation.
Please let us know how this installs and performs if you give it a try. Thanks!

I have been using Scribus for years. The new version looks good but will not
be upgrading until a version for Ubuntu/Kubuntu 14.04 appears.

There is a bit of a learning curve for Scribus. Once this has been mastered
Scribus is an excellent application.

We now have the latest stable Scribus 1.4.6 desktop publishing application in the test repository.
Most Important Changes

Scribus 1.4.6 finally supports SVG blend modes.
Improvements to Scribus’s PDF export.
Improvements to hyphenation.
Translation and documentation updates.
As of version 1.4.6, Scribus includes four new color palettes, namely CIE LAB and CIE HLC, both of which are available in a CMYK and an sRGB version. They refer to affordable color fans that use an open and non-proprietary color model.
As with all programs in the test repository, we appreciate any feedback about how the program installs and performs. Thanks!
