I think part of the problem is how spoiled we've been with Scribus' developer
releases. Anytime one's come out I know I've been able to start using it
without any, or VERY few, problems right away.
You guys have been so good that I think people get confused when a developer
release is sent out that acts a bit like...well...a developer release that
people get confused.
It's a curse that comes with success, think of it as geek paparazi.....
And, by the way, 1.3.4 is NICE - I can't wait to see where you go with it.
