General Discussion / Re: Scribus 1.6 - even a rough "guessimate" would be wonderful

some further nitpicking from side:

- according to the release notes, the team considers 1.5.3 to be stable enough for production work.
- personally, i think that people who have been using scribus for some time can switch to 1.5.3 for selected projects. i've been working with it for years now and i haven't had much more issues than with 1.4.x.
- if you don't need a feature that is only in 1.5.3 (like arabic / hindic support) you should first start with 1.4.x
- the team does indeed works towards a rock stable 1.6... in my eyes, the issue is that the bar for 1.6 is set way too high. simply releasing more often *and* switching to a git feature branch model (there is no development version anymore: simply a version that is being stabilized after the branches that are ready have been merged). but, right now, too much time has passed since the last version and it's not possible to speed up the current release.
- currently, i think that there are three main goals to be achieved for 1.6 to be released:
  - fix the properties palettes to be usable (despite the increased number of features that have been put into it!)
  - make sure that the features that have been taken from cezary's work cannot do any harm (there is a rather complex history behind those features: you don't want to know the details...).
  - check that the undo cannot harm.
  it's not that much, but also not trivial.
- no, there are very slim chances that 1.5.3  will destroy your work. but it's up to you, at what time you want to switch to a different version. make backups. often.
- just one final thing: you can install multiple versions of scribus on the same computer but, then, you will have to be careful when double clicking a file : - )

flomman, I had one more thought.  You could use Krita for the CMYK conversion and some edits, though this app is for more painting/drawing than editing.  You will at least be able to get an idea of what the color shift to CMYK will be before placing into Scribus and printing.

GarryP: Yes I keep my books under lock and key as well :-)

flomman: Yes, the color books give a pretty accurate color on both the gloss and uncoated paper stocks.  Now there are other variables that press operators have to account for such as humidity, temperature, paper texture, running the inks heavy or light, how much water/solution is mixed with the ink, how long the plates are exposed, etc... but a good operator will account for these and match them to the printed proof under daylight bulbs.

I have just installed Scribus-NG and I have question about the documents size. In the last version there were many sizes like A4, A5, A6, B4, B5, B6, C ... here I have only A4, Letter and Custom. How can I add the another sizes? Second question - can I copy / paste the templates from the v.1.43 to NG? And if Yes - HOW?

I'm just looking at these Pantone bridge books.  Am I correct in thinking that this shows you what the CMYK values will produce when printed?
