          Release Notes: This will be the last development release before the next stable release of Scribus 1.2. Most of this release has been focused on code optimizations and polishing new features added in recent releases. Among the notable additions are multiple color sets (4 currently available); drop caps capability; a multiple column feature for text frames; tab support with left, right, centered, full stop, and comma tabulators; and search and replace functions for text frames. The translations for Finnish, Czech, Danish, Ukrainian, Polish, Russian, and British were updated.

                  Release Notes: This version features a completely new font discovery mechanism. It no longer relies on Qt for fonts, but gets all the font info directly via freetype. It now also fully supports Open Type fonts. All glyphs are accessible including expert sets, true small capitals, old style figures, and enhanced ligatures. All fonts can be selectively sub-set, reducing file size up to 70% on text heavy PDFs. The Measurements panel has been renamed to the Properties Palette to reflect its true usage. A Catalan Hyphenation dictionary was also added.
