In this issue there’s coverage of:

The main weekly feature highlights the Scribus desktop publishing (DTP) package. Scribus is a fantastic tool used for creating flyers, posters, or any other similar material that requires a high-level of graphic design and control. One of the most popular features is direct PDF output for transferring high-quality output to both the Web and commercial printers, something that makes the program extremely easy to get to grips with.
