OK I understand scribus is basically a kde and qt application. it interfaces with gimp and inkscape very well. These are gnome applications. Now, gnome applications are work horses and fine; unfortunately, gnome itself is a house of cards.

a kde upgrade I can do with time on my hands; gnome I do not want to hear of. Now SuSe 9.2 ships as professional only. Ok by me. But I hear not everything is on cd; some apps are only on DVD?? There was a posting to this effect two weeks or so ago; scribus itself was missing from the cds.

Ok, so what will 1.3 require? Note there are kernel patches for SuSE 9.2 that show a bifurcation for gpl kernel and non-gpl (proprietary) kernel.

I will tell a funny story. i attended the LINUX CLUSTER show at San Jose, California last year just after Novell took over SuSe and 9.1 was out the door. There were immediate kernel and gnome patches. The Novell guy said 'Next time, we get all this.' Next time has come and still the big dichotomy of kde and gnome.

Please keep scribus 'PURE'. kde is fine and qt too. No gnome libraries!
