Thanks Riku.
Indeed, I keep the same directory, and I realize that some files had
been updated, so I think the day in "About Scribus" does not change for
avery changes in the cvs.

Actually, I'm using 1.3.3.x for production (and 1.3.4cvs in order to
test it, in a parallel installation). And I'm not compilating the
1.3.3.x series: I'm just working with rpm, and as I installed the with the rpm, it's now "locked" in Yast, and I cannot upgrade
That's the reason of my question.

Thank you again
