on my side i've reduced my expectation to "i hope the next
stable release gets released"...

on your side, if your such a heavy user of scribus and indeed
experience too many crashes, you may try to help the
team iron out those issues:

- by trying to figure out the patterns which lead to the crashes,
  reproduce and describe them
- by running scribus inside a debugger and upload the output to the

this will certainly cost you time and possibly also some money... the
question being: how much worth is a stable scribus to you?

back to my side: scribus does not crash too often... i mean: almost no
data lost in the last few months! but stability is certainly a very
subjective measure!
