The problem with 1.3.4 was that it was just the very beginning of a host
of new features, introduced in May, 2007. It has never had any bugfixes,
since very soon thereafter, the underlying qt3 was switched to qt4, and
this is what 1.3.5svn is based on. The svn part relates to the use of
subversion as the versioning system. You can use subversion, for
example, for downloading and compiling frequent updates. What these
snapshots represent is someone periodically compiling the svn version
for you, very useful for someone using Windows.
The current *stable* version is 188.8.131.52, and there is also a bugfix
version of this, 184.108.40.206svn, and once again there are some snapshots of
this available. At the moment, 220.127.116.11 or 18.104.22.168svn are the best
choices for someone just learning Scribus.
