Getting the message out

Send out the release notes from the Wiki page minus the logos and in plain text form to the recipients (partners, potential multipliers, press) in the distribution list (currently handled by Christoph). Be careful to separate the three categories, in other words: send one email to all press contacts (using CC or BCC), one to partners etc.

Updating external resources

The most important external resource that needs to be updated is Wikipedia. Note that many of Wikipedia's Scribus pages haven't been updated for years, but some are up to date, especially the major ones (English, German, French, Italian etc.).
