Unfortunately, a lot of *distributions* don't seem to know that.
I just installed F8/i86_64 on this computer and when I told it to install
Scribus I got 1.3.4. To get 188.8.131.52 I had to compile it myself.
A chap who advertises on my theatre flyer just sent me his copy for the
December flyer. It didn't open. I checked what he sent me, it's from 1.3.4.
I called him to ask what's what, and he said that his Ubuntu had just done an
automatic update and he got 1.3.4 from that, by magic. I told him to back it
off again which he did and all is well.
But how many other folks will be bitten by that as well....
