There is a whole new font and style system in 1.3.4 -- I think it likely
means that you may have to tweak text frames to get the same look you
had in 1.3.3.x. At the same time you have much to gain in terms of new
features and control of text display.

Once you work on a document in 1.3.4 and save it, you will not be able
to load it into 1.3.3.x again, so you should work on a copy. Here at
LGM2 we had Peter and Andreas describing a lot about the new and changed
features. They are substantial enough that we'll have to have some wiki

As in past releases, it is recommended that for production work, it's
safest to stay with the current stable, now 1.3.3.x.
