Scribus is available for many operatings systems and comes in basically two flavors, stable and unstable. For almost all production work, we recommend that you use the stable version. The unstable version is our development version where lots of things are regularly changing as we fix issues and introduce new features.
Currently the stable branch is the 1.4.x series. Download links for 1.4.x installers are available, click the button below. Use this branch if you want to work with a thoroughly tested software without any unpleasant surprises.
The unstable branch is currently 1.5.x. It’s mainly being released for people who want to help us testing and improving Scribus, so the next stable series (1.6.x) will work well. It is also possible to install 1.4.x and 1.5.x side by side, so you can work with one version and play with the other.
