Does that mean that there will be no stabilized version with bleed support
in the near future?
I believe the scribus community is quite patient. Remember the feature
freeze for 1.3.4 was 2006-11-14. With the big announcement of 1.3.4
2007-05-29 you made lots of mouths water even more.
I was hoping that there would (have) be(en) a version with the
major bugs fixed. A version that one could finally recommend to others.

If you are telling us to wait for 1.4 (or even 1.3.6), how long is
that going to take if 1.3.4 took a year?

What can the community do to help?
