Scribus: Professional page layout for Linux

I had to install 1.3.4 because of needing crop marks and bleeds (1.3.3.9 doesn't have that ability). From reading the Scribus mailing list, I've deduced that 1.3.5 is available and more stable (yes, 1.3.4 stinks in that regard - I save very often!) but as of yet can't figure out where to get it...

There is no set date yet for the next stable release - the developers want to reach all of their version goals before releasing it. Whenever it is though, I look forward to it! It will be a fabulous program next stable release.

An important point to remember here is, DTP is an insanely complex thing. I'm just happy I can do it on Linux now. I generally use it for posters, postcards and brochures. (Newly learned lesson: use Krita for your print photos - NOT Gimp!)
