We are talking about a tangible momentum-building-change in the UI that
will make it to 1.6 which is not to far off. No one is talking about
perfection. Specifics could be: implementing proposals being discussed in
the Scribus forums (that I posted recently).

If we get the RTL/CJK folks all talking to each other + semi-availability
of the Scribus devs (via the Dev mailing list) I'm hoping this would be a
game-changer and make Scribus more accessible to folks who use those
formats all over the world.

I'm glad you're looking in to this Christoph

Ok .. so not an MSI installer...but something.... Please, to bring 1.5svn
to more people for testing. It's shocking that Jean is the only human to my
knowledge in our known 'verse that is using 1.5svn on Windows!
