This is Scribus Version 1.1.7, the eightth Developers Release after Scribus 1.0.1
3 paul 2
 
238 Franz 3
The Scribus 1.1.x versions feature a complete rewrite of the rendering Engine.
4
All rendering is now done via libart and freetype2. This requires that libart and freetype2 are present.

Additionally Scribus uses now a different way to find fonts, sadly this gives
7
some changes in the font names Scribus uses. To convert old documents follow the
68 Franz 8
procedure below:

238 Franz 10
1) Create a document with the old Version of Scribus containing all your Fonts.
68 Franz 11
2) Open the new Scribus and go to the Font Substitution List.
12
3) Clear out all current Substitutions.
238 Franz 13
4) Open the Document created in 1) and substitute all the fonts with the correct new Fonts.
68 Franz 14
 
238 Franz 15
When you open now old Documents Scribus will convert all Font Names
16
automatically.

To use Scribus in your native language be sure that the environment
21
variable LANG is set correctly.

The new EPS/PS import feature in 1.1.7, uses advanced features of Ghostscript. We recommend
24
ALL users update to the newest version of Ghostscript avialable for your distro.
25

Special note for SuSE 8.1 users, you need the devel packages, at least
27
xdevel.rpm, qtdevel.rpm and tiffdevel.rpm. In the Standard-Install they
28
were not installed.

Other notes/known issues at the time of release:
31
 
32
There is a bug in font outline handling for some fonts in the freetype
33
libraries. It's being worked on upstream. Don't file a bug report. Instead
34
change the font used if you need the outlines. This is not a Scribus bug.
35

For Debian Users:
238 Franz 37
 
38
If Scribus does not start while complaining about the absence of
39
PostScript fonts please install either xfonts-scalable or gsfonts-x11.
40
They are in the "Recommends" and will be installed by all sensible apt
41
front-ends.

302 Franz 43
For SuSE 9.0/9.1 Users.
238 Franz 44
 
45
The littlecms libs 1.10, which shipped with 9.0 does not offer complete support
302 Franz 46
for all the the latest CMS features in Scribus 1.1.7. There are updated
47
SuSE 9.x RPM's available on the scribus.net site.
238 Franz 48
 
302 Franz 49
If you are using Qt 3.3.x, please ensure you are using the latest Qt 3.3.2-2+ rpms.
238 Franz 50
The -2+ versions have an important fix for drag and drop in Scribus.
