using scribus 1.2, so I think a have the authority to say, that scribus
is "basically usable".

Scribus is very usable rather than basically usable.

I have used it for 3 and a half years now to produce our newsletter which runs 
at times to 20 plus A3 and A4 pages, not large but complex with significant 
quarterly calendars, images, text over text and now we are going to full colour 
for our email version.
Sure there are minor things I would like changed -but- these will occur in 
subsequent versions.

Much has bees said about hyphenation. I am uncertain about the real need for 
hyphenation.  In all the newsletters I have done in Scribus none have used 
hyphenation, my sub editor will not permit it. She says it means that the 
sentence needs different wording or that particular line is slightly shorter 
than other lines or the layout design needs correcting.
Either way it's fixable with the tools available.

I think the thing to remember is that our software engineers and development 
teams do their best to meet a raft of demands so freezing I think, will not 
solve problems.
