Scribus is an open-source program that brings award-winning professional
page layout to Linux/Unix, MacOS X, OS/2 and Windows desktops with a
combination of "press-ready" output and new approaches to page layout.
Underneath the modern and user friendly interface, Scribus supports
professional publishing features, such as CMYK color, separations, ICC
color management and versatile PDF creation.
The OS/2 build has not had a whole lot of testing - if any reproduceable
crashes (ie SIGSEGV) are seen, please email me the details to
