It is something we *do* take into account. Franz just made some
improvements to the plugin which imports 0.5-1.2.x files into 134cvs.
We tested using some files I had from about 0.5.4-0.5.5 which was mid
2002 when I created them. It even remembers the color management
Interestingly, it was one of the first real docs I created in Scribus.
It was a short training manual for creating PDF reliably in Pagemaker
So while the file format is changing, some places quite a bit, loading
old docs should be quite painless. What does change is the height of
the gap of the top of the text frames slightly. The rest just seems
to work without issue.
