the bug tracker shows that all PDF forms related bugs are closed in which will be released soon. AFAIK no new PDF features where
added in 1.3.4.
1.3.5svn is the current development branch and only available via SVN.

To compile Scribus checkout

svn co svn://scribus.info/Scribus/branches/Version133x/Scribus

and compile:

cmake .
make install

1.3.4 and 1.3.5svn are not recommended for productive work, but available
as branches from the same SVN repository, e.g:

svn co svn://scribus.info/Scribus/trunk/Scribus scribus135
