Dag Joop,

Unfortunately, it makes hardly any sense to publish a manual for development 
versions (and the 1.3x series is a development series). Scribus is currently 
a moving target, and it would be a waste of time to describe features that 
constantly change or menus that will move, change their UI or even disappear. 
You can still use the tutorial for becoming familiar with some of the basic 
concepts of DTP. Then we have the docs (docs.scribus.net) and the Wiki 
(wiki.scribus.net), and both offer lots of useful articles and hints, even 
for the 1.3x series. Finally, there's this list ...

Dus, als je hulp nodig hebt, aarzel niet te vragen :)
