The Scribus Team is pleased to announce the release of version 1.5.8.
Like previous releases, work on version 1.5.8 focused mostly on bugfixes
and code optimizations, the latter of which are expected to lead to
reliability and speed improvements. We have also begun to prepare
Scribus for using Qt6, which will make our work easier for future releases.
Most important changes
- UI Improvements for dark mode and some icon updates and window
- Improvements to file import (IDML, PDF, PNG, TIFF, SVG)
- Improvements to PDF export
- Improvements with respect to tables (undo/redo, styles)
- Improvements to the Story Editor
- Improvements to the build system
- Translation updates
- Scribus 1.5.8 now includes Python 3 and is built for mac OS Catalina

), beginning with
revision 24637 in April 2021.
Please note that while some bug fixes still may be backported to the
1.4.x branch, we do not plan an official release of this version
anymore. If you think you need the changes, you have to check out the
SVN repository and build 1.4.9svn from source. We encourage all Linux
and *BSD distributions to switch from 1.4.x to this new version, since
it's not only much more versatile but also more stable.
