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.
