New point releases of stable distribution are only supposed to address
security concerns. They will not update packages for other reasons to avoid
introduction of new bugs.

Sorry, but you have to download scribus or scribus-cvs package somehow. If you
have access to a faster connection at work or at some friend's place you can
download only the package you need to get Scribus running and then install
those locally by using dpkg (dpkg -i package.deb). You can see what packages
Scribus requires you to have at

Stu. It looks like you are new to the software building process under Linux.
There is nothing wrong with that. However, you can save yourself from a whole
lot of trouble by using pre-compiled packages like those I provide for Sarge.
That's why they are there for.
