Admittedly it is some work, but you should check the bug tracker to see
what bugs are outstanding for 1.3.8, and see whether these are serious
functional issues for your use.
Ultimately, you just need to cautiously delve into it, perhaps make or
partially make a document with 22.214.171.124, then open it in 1.3.8, and see
how it goes.
I think most of us are finding 1.3.8 to be pretty reliable at this
point. If there are some who have various rather important issues, it's
the MacOS users, who are more or less still better off using 1.3.8. The
rest of us on Linux and Windows just don't see some of the problems they do.
