  • More Open Source color palettes have been included.
  • Scribus now supports Pillow as an alternative to the Python Imaging Library.
  • Improvements to the build system.
  • Improvements to the Preflight Verifier.
  • Memory management in connection with the new Hyphenator has been optimized.
  • The Short Words plug-in now supports Danish.
  • Many Documentation updates.

Most important bugfixes:
