The last couple of days I tried out both
* Aqua-Scribus 1.3.4, which uses QT 3.3.5,
* Scribus 1.3.4 compiled on my MacBook Pro, running 10.4.9,
2 GHz Intel Core Duo, using Fink 0.27.1 and qt3 3.3.8-1021.

Scribus 1.3.4 is fast and responsive as I know it to be.
Older versions used to be fast enough for my work even on my iBook  
G3, 800MHz.

Aqua-Scribus on the contrary is currently only PPC, thus is emulated  
by Rosetta,
and not really responsive enough to be productive with. But is this  
automatically a qt3 issue?

What I am trying to say:
I don't seem to have performance problems due to QT3.

Kind regards,
