Scribus 1.5.6.1 released

The Scribus Team is pleased to announce the release of version 1.5.6.1. The release was delayed due to the current pandemic, but we finally got there. This is a major release on our way to 1.6.0, even though most changes have taken place “under the hood”. Apart from a few remaining fringe issues, this release has been thoroughly tested and is considered to be stable. However, there are also a lot of new features. Please note that while some bugfixes 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. 1.5.6.1 fixes a spell checker crash on some Linux distros but is otherwise the same as 1.5.6.
