I have spent most of
today in attempting to get my work done on Scribus 1.5.
If you are doing production work to deadlines, you should use 1.4 not 1.5.
If you need 1.5 for the PDF you can have both 1.4 and 1.5 on the same 
machine, you should do your work in 1.4 and only as final stage COPY the 
sla with a different name (maybe ending in "_1_5.sla") and load it in 
1.5 only for purposes of producing your PDF.
Any rework should be done in 1.4 only, unless you find something 
essential that can not be done in it or that changes unacceptably when 
you take it to 1.5.
If the later happens let the mailing list / devs know so they can look 
into whether it is a bug in 1.4 or 1.5

It has frozen up, closed down
1.5 is development so it can be "unstable", you should not use for 
production work

It would be better if we had a Windows version, I think!!
Doubt it, probably would be more unstable !
