Reviewing 1.4.0 (Jan 5, 2012)
A wonderful package. Been using it since v1.2 (2008).
Sometimes gems just turn up, this is one of them.
Reviewing 1.4.0 RC3 (Mar 29, 2011)
Combine it with Ghostscript, GSView, GIMP, InkScape and maybe Open Office if you need it and you've got a whole suite of office programs, but Open Sourced. I love this combo... :) Scribus has come far since v1.3.3 and I wholeheartedly recommend those who didn't like v1.3.3 to try this one. Love it! If you work with PDF documents you'll like it.
Reviewing 1.3.8 svn-100627 (Jun 29, 2010)
Why anyone uses MS Publisher is a complete mystery when this is available, plus everyone can use the resulting files instead of just other people saddled with the misery that is publisher.
Reviewing 1.3.5 RC3 (Jul 3, 2009)
Yep, that's got it!
Absolutely marvelous, I'll use this version in XP until the stable version for Linux is available. Thanks and congratulations to all the developers, this is out of the top drawer.
Reviewing 1.3.5 RC2 (Jun 8, 2009)
It's getting there - especially now it can embed EPS/PDFs into the PDF output without rasterising. Still has some fairly basic bugs which is a pity, but it's improving. What's the problem with Vista fonts? The resulting PDFs aren't searchable and seem to render a bit slowly - otherwise this is starting to look horribly good!
