I was wondering if there was some kind of simple comparison chart between the two versions to help me to find the familiar controls/buttons and to briefly describe some of the new features.

comparison chart:     1.3.8
bad            good


the problem with writing a comparison chart is that people who knows 
what features are in 1.3.8 have not used 1.3.3.x for years...

could you please upload one of those documents to the bug tracker and 
attach a pdf created with and one created with 1.3.8 to compare 
the differences?
you may create a demo document where this happen and also upload the 
fonts you're using (if the font is not free, you can mark the bug as 
private and it won't be world readable...)

have fun with scribus 1.3.8
