Scribus v1.3.3.7 beta for OS/2 & eComStation

Scribus is an open-source program that brings award-winning
professional page layout to Linux/Unix, MacOS X, OS/2 and Windows
desktops with a combination of "press-ready" output and 
new approaches to page layout.

Underneath the modern and user friendly interface, Scribus 
supports professional publishing features, such as CMYK color,
separations, ICC color management and versatile PDF creation.

The Scribus Team is very pleased to welcome a release on the OS/2 &
eComStation platform. We would like to thank Paul Smedley who has
taken the time to port Scribus itself, and those who have ported the
other supporting libraries to OS/2. We will endeavour to find and
resolve issues specific to the platform when they are discovered,
specifically relating to levels of supporting libraries such as Qt.

- Supports OS/2 Warp4(R) and eComStation(TM)
- Requires libc061.dll - which is available from
  ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/pub/gcc/libc-0.6.1-csd1.zip
- GhostScript is a recommended installation as per the standard
  Scribus install instructions. Set the PostScript interpreter in
  Scribus' preferences to point to your installation. Example: the
  AFPL GhostScript executable from their gs854os2.zip is gsos2.exe.
  This package includes install instructions (note the GS_LIB 
  environment variable).

Known issues:
- Printing support is not complete, but PDF export is, you can easily
  print via Acrobat Reader or another PDF viewer as a temporary 
  workaround.
- The Qt released on OS/2 is quite old and issues may arise due to
  this fact.


General feedback can be provided to paul@smedley.info and via the
normal Scribus communications methods (IRC, mailing list etc), bug
reports should go to http://bugs.scribus.net.

Regards
Scribus Team
