The Scribus Team is pleased to announce the release of Scribus 1.3.7.
This new release brings us closer to version the next stable release 1.4.

During this development period the team focused on stabilty and correctness.

Almost 50 bugs have been resolved since the release of 1.3.6. In addition,
Scribus 1.3.7 provides some minor enhancements:

* New Scripter functions
* Usability improvements
* Translation updates
* Updates to the documentation
* PDF bookmark export fixes
* Text layout fixes

The Scribus Team considers this version to be quite stable and ready for
many real-world use cases. However, since there are still some
annoyances that prevent us from releasing version 1.4, more cautious
users may want to prefer to stick with the officially stable version
1.3.3.14.

The Scribus Team will continue to implement new features and
improvements in our 1.5.0 development branch. Features that can be backported
may become part of the 1.4 milestone.

==Important Information==

Please note that we have branched our code repository:

* 1.3.8svn code (the next iteration of the development version and
prossibly the last before the release of 1.4) is available from the
"Version135"branch: (svn://scribus.info/Scribus/branches/Version135/)

* trunk (=experimental) is now versioned 1.5.0svn
(svn://scribus.info/Scribus/trunk) and continues to undergo heavy changes.
Please use this branch for testing only!

The Scribus Team recommends that all distributions package Scribus 1.3.3.14
as "Scribus" or "scribus". We recommend the additional packaging of 1.3.7
only if it is marked as a development version and can be installed
alongside an existing Scribus 1.3.3.14 (for example as "scribus-ng").

An important reminder:
If you are working with 1.3.3.x and decide to implement some design
features available in 1.3.7, you should only work with a copy of your file,
since once it is saved in 1.3.7 format, you will not be able to open it again
with 1.3.3.x.

Similarly, if you are working with a team, try to make sure that all team
members use the same Scribus version -- this will avoid many headaches and
extra work.
