In fact.

You reached 50 ? - Wunderful ! - I never reached one.

In my eyes Scribus needs no more features for the next short time. It
should be "hardened" in the next time.

The first hours I saw Scribus it looks to me that Scribus is *the*
DTP software for linux desktop. But from the moment I tried to use it
productive like Illustrator, version 8 and 10, before this turns a 
little bit into sadness.

The same here.

That's sad. There is a lot of good stuff for the future in this project. 
but there's a long way to go, too.
