Thank you Craig for telling us - veru useful advice.

For "Le Tigre", we use the 1.3.3 (3 on Linux and 1 on WinXP), and as we 
need to make 24 pages avery week, we can't get any risk of unimport of 
text, or things like that. So we won't try any "apt-get install 
scribus-cvs" (thanks Malex!) those weeks...

Of course I'm a bit sad cause I'd had like to test all these new things, 
but I'll try maybe on another computer (I know I should try to learn CVS 
things, but I tried once and it was too difficult).

Do you think the 1.3.4 will release (or be more or less useful) before 

Anyway guys, thanks again and again - at this time Scribus is our great 
friend and I know that I will never use again the other PAO-softwares. 
When you make the Character Styles, it will just be the bonheur (good 
name for 1.3.4, isn't it?)
