  • Fixes to hyphenation
  • Update to tell Windows installer to not reboot on installation of the Visual C++ Redistributable package
  • Update DublinCore input fields for Document Information tagging

Scribus 1.7.x is the new unstable series. While we will maintain Scribus 1.6.x as a stable version, most development will focus on 1.7.x and features and Qt6-based enhancements. 1.7.0.svn is developing relatively quickly with the integration of a new palette and docking system, new SVG based icons and many more features.
