Scribus 1.4.4 Released, Providing Minor Feature Updates and Several Bugfixes. New Industry Partnership Announced

The Scribus Team is pleased to announce the release of Scribus 1.4.4, as well as a new partnership with a leading vendor of newspaper systems.

Scribus 1.4.4 is mostly a bugfixing release, but also adds a feature update. It will likely be the last release in the 1.4.x branch, and the Scribus Team will from now on solely focus on the development of the next major version 1.6. We expect to make available a first beta release (version number 1.5.0) in the course of 2014.

Most Important Changes

  • The Barcode plug-in has been updated to reflect the latest changes in the underlying Barcode Writer in Pure PostScript (BWIPP).
  • Several issues related to the user interface and canvas display have been resolved.
  • An issue with the spellchecker, resulting in a crash, has been resolved.
  • The handling of transparencies in Photoshop-generated TIFF files has been improved.
  • The Autoquote script has been rewritten.
