Scribus is the real thing; a professional quality page layout program capable of producing “press-ready” output. The feature list is impressive, basically everything you want is there including: CMYK color, separations, ICC color management and versatile PDF creation.
The user interface though highly functional, is not quite as slick as its commercial cousins but it can be skinned to fit in with the look of whatever operating system you are using.
The documentation is excellent and there are lots of support from Scribus’ enthusiastic user community.
