I agree to this. We see more and more users trying scribus the first
time (which is nice), but a considerable percentage of the new users are
mixed up by the current versioning scheme. This issue comes up over and
over on this list. It doesn't matter how many times it gets explained on
this list, many new users will be baffled. Changing the scheme will
upset lots of things (e.g. the roadmap), but it is worthwhile IMHO.
Versioning should help the users instead of confusing them.
