1.5.219 May 2016 02:53 major feature: The text layout engine has been rewritten from scratch in preparation for support of complex scripts such as Arabic, Hebrew, Chinese and Hindi coming in Scribus 1.5.3 and later. We are more than grateful for the magnificent work that the Oman House of Open Source Technology team, led by Khaled Hosny, completed. Within the context of the text layout system rewrite, some new text features introduced with the 1.5.0 release have been stabilized and improved. Improvements to the canvas rendering on Hi-DPI screens. The Autosave and File Recovery system has seen large improvements and is now highly configurable. The Resource Manager, as well as the official Scribus Resources pool have been expanded significantly, because Scribus 1.5.2 provides direct access to the more than 300 (mostly commercial) color palettes of the Open Colour Systems Collection in the LAB color space. We would like to thank dtp studio oldenburg and the initiative freieFarbe for making these color palettes available under a CC license. The Resource Manager user interface has received some enhancements. The Resource Manager now verifies resource downloads from Scribus servers with SHA256 checksums.
