1.3.4 itself is a bit of a dead-end version. Where fixes are being made, 
they go into 1.3.5, which is a version that uses qt4. 1.3.5 still isn't 
quite safe enough to recommend, especially for something like a book. If 
you can get 1.3.5svn up and running, you might make your book in 
or, then load a copy into 1.3.5svn (or 1.3.4) to see how it 
looks. A big issue with the transition to 1.3.4+ is a different handling 
of text and styles.
