[Scribus] 1.4

That is how it works.  But try not to think of it as "unstable", but rather 
"not for production".  Much of the code is still being tested throughout 
this process, and as they go along, they find what is wrong, clean it up and 
make it stable.  There is a Roadmap of what will be in the 1.4 series of 
Scribus, and using that roadmap, they know where they need to be, and what 
needs to be finished before calling it 1.4.

Once they have all the features implemented, then they go into a feature 
freeze, and nothing new can be added to the list of features.  While in that 
phase they work to squash all the bugs they can find, and clean up the code. 
After that they can then start the Beta testing, and then the final release.

I hope this helped to clear it up.
