Since 1.3.5svn is the current development version, it can change from one
to the next. So if you want to do something about it, you'd need to tell us
you downloaded it and what specific function seems to be slow.
Or you just wait for things to improve.

Scribus should do fine on that hardware unless you have documents with lots
imageframes. You might want to check if you have a debug build or not; the
executables in debug mode are much larger and eat more memory.
