This version is built from a snapshot of the upcoming 1.4.4 release, which was provided in order to test a new feature as below. Please test, and report any findings, negative or positive.

Note that in order to use PDF X-1a, you need to activate color management, then select X-1a compatibility in the document's settings. If done correctly, you will see these custom properties in Adobe Reader on export: "GTS_PDFXVersion" & accompanying value: "PDF/X-1:2001", as well as "GTS_PDFXConformance" and accompanying value: "PDF/X-1a:2001".

Unfortunately, I can't seem to find either of these custom values myself using either Foxit Reader or PDF-XChange Viewer, although I can in Adobe Reader.

Scribus mailing listHi all,

Sometimes it's good to break a promise. We've repeated over and over again that PDF/X-1a export would not be
backported to the 1.4.x branch. Our users in North America (especially) will be glad to hear that we
changed our mind, and as of tonight, Scribus 1.4.4svn can actually export PDF/X-1a files.

Please test the new feature, so we can release 1.4.4 really soon.

[EDIT] Fixed the MD5.
