Link 'broken' (or so). It

Link 'broken' (or so). It points to the ...Dev_Test_2_English.paf.exe but there only is a ...Dev_Test_2.paf.exe. It's downloadble off the sourceforge directory, though,

Fixed, thanks. Serves me right for editing the link instead of replacing it entirely.

9.04

Base app updated to 9.04, switched to commonfiles plugin

[EDIT 18-OCT-2011] After doing some testing, I've discovered this DOES NOT install to CommonFiles as expected, so for those using Scribus with it, change the launcher line appropriately for now. I'm working to fix the problem.

Dev Test 3

I removed the Mercurial-related files & folders, resulting in a smaller download size, otherwise this is identical to Dev Test 2.

About Ready?

You think this is about ready to call 'done' so we can release it in time for Scribus?

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
