I suppose it depends if it has all the features you want or need, and
crashes less often.
For myself, Scribus 22.214.171.124 does what I need. I look forward to new
features that may improve the ergonomics of use, but non essential
features matter a lot less to me than the fact that Scribus has fewer
severe unfixed bugs, and crashes a lot less than the InDesign 1.5 or
Pagemaker 6.52 releases that we have used in the past !
For us, Scribus 126.96.36.199 amounted to an upgrade !
