Title: Scribus 1.5.6 is out
Post by: a.l.e on November 12, 2020, 01:26:15 pm
The development version Scribus 1.5.6 has been released yesterday!

https://wiki.scribus.net/canvas/1.5.6_Release

If you're still "thirsty" after having read the official announcement you can read my write up:

https://impagina.org/news/2020-11-12-scribus-156

i plan to add a few screenshots and screencasts to the article, but i would love it if people could contribute to it:

- by providing the images
- by translating it in other languages
- and by writing further articles about scribus : - )

and let me back to writing one more patch for scribus : - )
the programming now happens on 1.5.7.svn... we're not over!

p.s.: at the time of writing, the links on the official download page are wrong. but you can use https://impagina.org/download ... it should be up to date and points to the same files the official page is supposed to point to...

Many thanks!   :)

Just a quick item for you attention.  The text is somewhat hazy and pixelated especially at lower zoom levels.  Its good when printed on paper however.  Otherwise Ive really been enjoying using it.

Im currently running the 1.5.6 release, I cant seem to find the change log for 1.5.6.1 to see what has changed.

Anyone know where to find this?

According to http://lists.scribus.net/pipermail/scribus/2020-November/056386.html,

1.5.6.1 fixes a spell checker crash on some Linux distros but is otherwise the same as 1.5.6.
