Scribus: Professional page layout for Linux

I have tried to like Scribus many times. But judging from the comments above there are still several show stopping problems that make it unacceptable for use in anything bigger than a brochure. The author did not say but from the description of his crashes I would guess they have still not fixed the ridiculous performance problems that occur when ever you try to manhandle a large book sized document. The style handling thing is a long standing problem as well. The whole interface for styles needs to be rethought in my opinion.
I am still cheering for you Scribus guys, but it looks like I will have to wait a bit longer before I can use it for any serious work.
