Version 1.7.0 for macOS

(1/1)

toyotadesigner:
OK, the 1.7.0 for macOS is available. I was wondering that there was no version 1.6.0…

Anyway, I had only few crashes over the past decade with Scribus, but this version crashed after 10 minutes due to signal XYZ.

In addition, I had to learn the hard way that the files I have modified with 1.7.0 are not backwards compatible, so if you should use the new version, make sure you have a backup of your old files.

RodneyLee:
where did you find 1.7.0, I don't see it on the Scribus website

1.6.x will be the next stable branch. 1.7.0 is a way to keep developing things that may not make it to 1.6.0…

well. at he moment the hard way isn't that hard. the files are still compatible, but scribus doesn't know that – and it may change with the next 1.7 release…
you just need to open the .sla file in a text editor and change the version number in the first line to '1.5.8' and scribus 1.5.8 will open it again.
