Scribus 1.5.3 Open-Source Desktop Publishing App Released with New Features
The road towards the major Scribus 1.6.0 stable series of the open-source and cross-platform desktop publishing software continues today with the release of the third milestone, versioned Scribus 1.5.3.
Scribus 1.5.3 comes about a year after the previous release, namely Scribus 1.5.2, and it adds quite a number of new features and improvements. Because it’s been in testing for so long, the Scribus team considers this build ready for some production work, but warns users to be careful that it’s still considered a development release.
“In addition to being a milestone in terms of typographic features, the Scribus Team is convinced that 1.5.3 has become stable enough to be used in new workflows and documents in a similar way to the transition from 1.3.3.x to 1.4.0 after the release of version 1.3.6. However, care must be taken, because this is still a development release,” reads the announcement.
