Scribus is a free package for page layout (DTP). The release of Scribus 1.4 gives us a chance to present this program with feature that before could only be found in the big proprietary software. The digital arts are well served by free software and Scribus is one of the best examples. This conference helps professionals to get to know this page layout tool and to understand the chances offered by the world of free software in a production context.
