Scribus is een opensourceprogramma voor desktoppublishing. Het programma kan gebruikt worden voor het bewerken en opmaken van documenten voor onder meer drukwerk, die vervolgens als pdf of postscript-document opgeslagen kunnen worden. Voor een overzicht van de verschillende mogelijkheden verwijzen we jullie door naar deze pagina. De ontwikkelaars hebben versie 1.3.9 de deur uitgedaan, die binnen te halen is als broncode of gecompileerd voor onder andere verschillende Linux-smaken, Mac OS X en Windows. De aankondiging van deze nieuwe uitgave ziet er als volgt uit:

Scribus 1.3.9 Released

The Scribus Team is pleased to announce the release of Scribus 1.3.9. This new release brings us very close to the next stable version 1.4. During this development period the team focused again on stability and correctness -- more than 70 bugs have been resolved since the release of 1.3.8.

Scribus 1.3.9 also adds some new features, for example:

ENHANCEMENTS TO THE BUILD SYSTEM
  • 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.
ENHANCEMENTS TO THE SCRAPBOOK:
  • 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.
RESOURCES AND RESOURCE MANAGEMENT:
  • 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.
FILE IMPORT:
  • 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.
TYPOGRAPHY:
  • 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.
DOCUMENTATION:
  • 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 changelog for version 1.3.9 is available here. Please note that the changelog lists only changes that pertain to bugs or feature requests in the bugtracker.

The Scribus Team considers this version to be quite stable and ready for most real-world use cases. However, since there are still some issues that we wish to resolve before releasing version 1.4, more cautious users may want to prefer to stick with the officially stable version 1.3.3.14.

The Scribus Team will continue to implement new features and improvements in the 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:
  • 1.4.0.beta1 code (the next iteration of the development version) 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!
Please also note that since 1.3.8 the minimum Qt version required to compile and use Scribus is 4.6. If your distribution doesn't offer updated Qt packages, you may have to compile Qt yourself.

Primary Download Location

Windows and Mac OS X installers, as well as the source code are available from Sourceforge. An OS/2 package will be added soon.

Further Download Options
  • Upstream Debian/Ubuntu repo: http://debian.scribus.net
  • RPMs for various Linux distributions are available from: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/mrdocs.

Kan iemand die ervaring heeft met MS Publisher en Scribus eens ingaan op de verschillen? Ja, Publisher is een flutprogramma vergeleken met "echte" DTP-paketten, maar het is goed genoeg om 'even snel' iets in elkaar te zetten. Thanks!
Het grootste verschil lijkt mij de licentie.... Het lijkt me geen probleem om Scribus eens te proberen en als het bevalt, hoef je niet verder te kijken...
