Scribus 1.4.5 Released

The Scribus Team is pleased to announce the release of Scribus 1.4.5.

Scribus 1.4.5 is almost exclusively a bugfixing and update release, including many corrections backported from 1.5.0svn. Scribus 1.5.0, the preview of the next stable Scribus release (1.6.0), is supposed to be released for testing purposes early in 2015.

Most Important Changes

  • Scribus is now being shipped with the most recent version of Barcode Writer in Pure PostScript.
  • Updates to the Scripter that enable more control on PDF export. There is also a new command in Scripter, applyMasterPage(), which allows you to apply an existing Master Page.
  • Updates to the Resene color palettes, including, for the first time, The Resene Total Colour System (TCS) Master Palette.
  • Many translation updates and improvements.
  • Usability improvements.
  • Better application icons.
  • New templates.
  • The OS X application bundle is now code signed (version 1 code signing, due to the OS X 10.5 Leopard build), and now contains the path tools for mesh distortion again.
