Thanks to all who responded to my request! I really appreciate the
information. I have uploaded new scribus-ng/libpodofo0.8.0 packages for Ubuntu
Lucid, Jaunty, and Karmic and for Debian Unstable to the Scribus Archive.
Please use them and file bug reports at http://bugs.scribus.net if you find
problems. I am working on a backport to Hardy, but not sure when I'll have
working packages. Moreover, it is almost certain that Scribus 1.3.7svn on
Hardy will exhibit buggy behavior due to age of Hardy's Qt4 libraries. I would
strongly urge those who still use Hardy to upgrade. By the way, PDF export
with pofodo 0.8.0 on 1.3.7svn is great - fast and good quality pdf embedding.
Give it a try. It's definitely an improvement over podofo 0.7.
