Many of our newbie users are using 126.96.36.199 and also 1.3.8. They are
getting caught in the format change that took place months ago. 1.3.8
is pretty stable. Heck 1.5.0 is pretty stable. But people continue
with 188.8.131.52 because it is the latest officially "stable" edition.
Therefore I suggest the following renumbering:
When 1.3.9 comes out maybe next week designate it as 1.4.0 instead and
declare it to be stable. Get the major distributions, Debian etc. to
offer it instead of 184.108.40.206. When the "real" 1.4.0 is finished next
year name it 1.4.1.
This way we can all be using the same version. Newbies won't be
misdirected to an antique version that knowledgeable Scribus users
don't bother with any more. And the issues that only arise from use
of 220.127.116.11 won't be with us.
