it's not written anywhere but 1.3.9 should have been working on 10.4.

craig asked me to test the .dmg in 10.4 (both ppc and intel) but i 
failed to run it (as you correctly point in your mail).

if you have any hint to give to him on how to get a dmg which also works 
on 10.4, please add it to the bug report i've opened:


from the number of request we get, i think that we should really try to 
support 10.4 users who can't use fink or mac ports for scribus 1.4

and, btw, thank you very much for your fink package! i've already 
updated my scribus here and it works like a charm!
