Scribus Version: v1.4.4
After producing a book on 'how to produce and publish your own book using Scribus' , I had taken up the task of writing a book on OpenOffice 4.x. Due to some complaining German speaking guys at a Linux ralley somewhere in the Netherlands, this title was quickly edited to serve LibreOffice 4.x users as well.
So now we have two titles on sale in the Dutch language:
Soon there will be a next new title dealing with the advanced use of formulas & functions in Calc,
which is used both in OpenOffice and LibreOffice. And there's more to come!
Of course the layout will be done in Scribus version 1.4.4.
Here  you can find the cover, originally designed in InDesign :-) by Hans Hollestelle  from Kampen
in The Netherlands. The design was then rebuilt using Scribus.
(Some people still have to be persuaded into using OpenSource...)
I find Scribus 1.4.4 a fine program to use in OpenSource publishing in combination with one of the major
Dutch Printing On Demand firms, Scanlaser , beit that the interface could do with some improvements.
Eagerly awaiting version 1.5 because a little bird has whistled some promises regarding the interface...
