One more time:
The only stable version of Scribus today is 188.8.131.52.
1.3.5 is unstable and always will be.
1.3.4 is both unstable and abandoned.
The next stable version (after 1.3.3.x) will be 1.40.
Any distribution that defaults to Scribus 1.3.5 for a binary
download is in error. When it becomes stable it won't be called
1.3.5 any more but 1.4.0.
I post this because lots of folks are coming in to the Scribus list
complaining that when they downloaded Scribus from their distro
they got 1.3.5, and it is full of bugs. Yes folks, that is what
unstable means, buggy. If you have access to Suse, Fedora,
Mandriva etc. lists please pass the word. And please make the
powers that be know in the debian and debian-derivative world that
Scribus 1.3.5 is not for binary download. It is updated nightly for
the svn users and definitely not ready for prime time. Never will
be with that number.
Thanks for your attention.
