first Monday of each month on the New Hampshire Institute Campus

marked as "I" on that map. The main meeting starts at 7 PM, with Ed
Lawson presenting Scribus, an open desktop publishing system. Open to
the public. Free admission. Tell your friends.
Scribus is available from http://www.scribus.org.uk and is not just
another pretentious word processor, but an entire pre-press system for
producing high-quality documents suitable for publication. It will
generate PDF. It has a new "Scriptor" API for scripting in Python.
Imports and exports SVG. Bells! Whistles! It runs natively under Linux
and under X11 on Mac OS X and CygWin on Windows. Scribus is distributed
under the GPL.
