Features, Office On July 15, 2003 the Scribus project had a milestone release. They released Scribus 1.0. I have used Scribus both personally and professionally since the early development times. 8.0 was when I first used it. 1.0 came with so many bug fixes and has become so refined I decided to do a review of it.

Wake me up when Scribus supports ICC profiles, Pantone colors, placing DCS, and can use Level 3 PostScript when printing to plotters...

I don't expect it will be long before people will be touting this program as being on-par with QuarkXPress in the same way that OSS zealots tout Ardour as being the same caliber of application as ProTools...
