Unfortunately, not yet. There is a branch in svn repo, but work on it 
stalled a long time ago, AFAIK.

We have monster menus and almost unusable PP. Those are things I'll 
definitely be delighted to see "fixed" in 1.5/1.6.

There is an ongoing work on adopting Symbolic derived (inspired is a 
better word, actually) icon set in Scribus, but I hesitate to continue 
work due to PP being refactored. I have no idea how new one is going to 
look like and what it will contain once finished. Don't want to work on 
something of no use to anyone...
