In the particular case of 1.3.4 there are apparently important
advances in the handling of text. That aspect is the major weak
point of Scribus IMNSHO. So I upgraded.
In similar fashion, any future version of Gimp which has facilities
for CMYK output will be installed here, since that is the major
shortcoming of that program.
I only upgrade TeX when the annual TeXLive distro comes out. Any
attempt to stay au courant with each change to e.g, pdftex and/or
Context is again IMNSHO more trouble than it is worth.
I upgrade Slackware 11 when numbered releases are made. Upgrading
Slackware is a bit of a bear, so I am not always anxious to be the
one by whom the new is tried.
