1.4.3 is considered stable. I have not found any
problems with my svn version thereof. In that
line of development bugs have been fixed but no
new features added. Now I don't use 1.4.3 that
often, having moved on to 1.5.0. I
always maintain backup copies of both versions so
that if a problem occurs I can back up to an earlier
version. But as I stated I haven't found a
problem with 1.4.3 svn and rarely has 1.5.0 svn
Enough bugs have been found and fixed already in
the 1.4.x progression that I would rather rely on
1.4.x svn than 1.4.2.
Have you tried Ubuntu or Debian repositories?
There are 1.4.3 overnights for Ubuntu available
on on the Scribus site.
