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.

HA! It doesn't even have my favorite feature.

This "Quark" Application everyone keeps talking about is such a steaming pile. Not only does it not run on my OS, it doesn't even include source code so if there's a problem, I can't dig in and fix it/figure it out! I certainly can't write my own extensions without the source code, and if I did they'd be derivative works and the Quark people would just own them anyway.

Until they start shipping the source with Quark, it will never measure up to Scribus.
