Yes, when I open scribus and look up the version numer, it says 1.3.1.

I also did "fink list scribus" at the terminal and got:

	Information about 5148 packages read in 5 seconds.
	 i   scribus          1.3.1-1002   Layout program
	     scribus-aqua     1.3.2-11     Layout program
	     scribus-i18n-en  1.0-1        English documentation for scribus

Which is also what it said prior to installation.

I manually installed Qt 4.7.1 from the Nokia site. However, during  
the scribus installation, fink installed Qt 3.3.6, which is the one  
listed under "About Qt" now.
