Release Announcement

Tonight we have released Scribus 1.4.0.rc3. It is more stable, faster and nicer having had lots of TLC applied.

This release candidate is the last one where we will possibly make string changes, so this is also a call for translators to update their translations before 1.4.0 final.

This release features:

  • Crash bug fixes
  • A lot of undo updates (including updates to text undo)
  • Usability fixes
  • A move to 140 versioned preference files
  • A number of older bugs triaged and fixed

The complete change log since 1.4.0.rc1 is at

Users and testers are encouraged to check bugs fixes since rc2 was released.
