The Scribus Team is pleased to announce the release of version 1.5.7.

Please note that while some bugfixes still may be backported to the 1.4.x branch, we do not plan an official release of this version anymore. If you think you need the changes, you have to check out the SVN repository and build 1.4.9svn from source.

Most important changes

  • Unification and standardisation of the user interface regarding margins, button and widget sizing.
  • Addition of XeLaTeX support to Render Frames
  • Improved font embedding for OpenType fonts in PDF/X-4
  • Improvements for undo and redo of grouped items
  • Support for later versions of dependencies such as poppler and podofo
  • Fixed: Issue with Qt menu heuristics causing translations not to work.


Technical/OS-related Updates

  • macOS: Scribus 1.5.7 notarisation has been fixed. It will run correctly without security warnings from Apple on Mojave through Big Sur. For those that use the Scripter functionality, our default DMG download of Scribus on macOS uses Python 2.x installed with the operating system. We have an experimental release that allows the use of Python3 if the user has XCode installed.
