   Subject: Sribus "save" format stable?
When will the "save" format stabilize? I've been watching Scribus for some  
time now as a possible successor to PageMaker 6 (didn't like the later  
versions). The one thing that makes me hesitate most is that I keep seeing  
statements like "if you made a document with 1.3.5 you won't be able to open  
it in 1.3.7". I'm not going to load Scribus now, use it to make documents (I  
print a small quarterly magazine) only to have to keep multiple copies of  
Scribus on my computer. Would you please stabilize the document format? At a  
minimum a later version should be able to open and convert the last stable  
version, or write a converter and package that with it.
