Scribus 1.4.8
Create newsletters, brochures, greetings cards, CD covers and more

Scribus is an open-source desktop publishing tool that's packed with all the layout features you need.

Excellent import features get you started by helping you utilise the content you already have. So, for instance, the program can import PDF documents, OpenOffice Draw, EPS, SVG, PSD and other files.

You can then work on your project, adding frames and tables, inserting images, using vector drawing tools or exploring the many font effects. Colour control includes CMYK and RGB support, spot colours, and ICC colour management.

And when you're finished, your document can be saved as a PDF, EPS or SVG file, as an image, and more.

Scribus takes a different approach to some of the other desktop publishing packages around, so you shouldn't expect to be productive with the program right away: it'll take time before you've learned the basics and feel at home. There is plenty of documentation available, though, so be sure to visit the support site if you need any help.

Version 1.4.8 changes (see changelog):

- Importing a Lilypond-generated .svg file generates peculiar results
- EPS import fails with ghostscript 9.24+
- Some text in text frames invisible in print preview/when printed
- Fonts installed by user are not found by scribus on Windows 10 1809 

Verdict:

Complex, and with a few quirks, but full of interesting and powerful publishing features

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
